We had used cold creams and all kinds of remedies, but nothing did her any good, in fact, she kept getting worse.

TREACHEROUS MOROS Summary Punishment Inflicted by Major Scott. Washington, March 1. Gen. Wade, in a cablegram to the war department, dated Manila, Feb. 27, advises the de partment of a report of Gen. Wood concerning an engagement at Jolo, on the 14th inst., with the remnants of Hassan's Cotta Moros. The American expedition was in charge of Maj. Hugo L. Scott. During the fight, Gen. Wood states, firing twice was stopped to give the Moros a chance to surrender, but they declined. The entire body, he adds, with the exception of Hassan, is either dead or captured, nd Hassan is located. Second Lieut. Eugene R. West, Eighteenth battery, field artil lery, was seriously womded in the thigh. Six other men were wounded. It is said at the war department that this destruction of Hassan's band is a case of retributive justice. Maj. Scott suffered at the hands of this fanatical Moro. The chief enticed the major off into the jungle, pretending to be friendly, and in ambush shot him. Since that time Maj. Scott has been on his trail and now has destroyed his band. Hassan, who was a priest, is one of the irreconcilliables. When the navy was making some surveys a year ago, off the coapt of Jolo. Hassan construed the .setting up of survey marks as an act of hostility and at tacked the f roops. Ho came inio Gen. Sumner's headquarters under sum mons but made his escape and ever since has been at war. His band is be lieved to have numbered about COO and if entirely destroyed, as the cable gram report s, the battle must have been of sumo proportions. CORBETT STILL CHAMPION FiIit Stopped in the Eleventh Round by Referee. San Francisco, March 1. Champion Featherweight Young Corbett had no difficulty in retaining his laurels last night, defeating Dave Sullivan, of New York, in the 11th round of a scheduled 20-round contest. Corbett left the ring without a mark, while on the oth er hand Sullivan received a terrific beating only the merciful action of Referee Graney in stopping the contest In the 11th round saving the New Yorker from having his face beaten into a pulp. Sullivan put up a game fight and, while out-boxed, out-fought and out-generaled, he gave the cham pion cause for worry in one round. Taking another feature out of the fight, which was Sullivan's excessive game ness, the contest was never in doubt. Reservation to be Opened. Washington, March 1. Some excel lent lands, including twelve townships of the Red Lake Indian reservation in northwestern Minnesota and a part of the Rosebud reservation about 41G, 000 acres in Gregory county, S. D., will be opened for settlement in a few months. President Roosevelt has con ceived the idea. that it would be to the lnTertirc ot .Ve.l-.ifcn't . to adopt the plan of disposing of the land by auction, and for some time he has been talking on the subject with senators and representatives in congress who are interested in it. Improving the Navv. - Washington, March 1. Important to the efficiency of the American navy was the action of Secretary Moody in signing the order for the equipping of the eighteen battleships and armor ed cruisers now building with sub merged torpedoes. The board on con struction recently decided to omit tor pedo tubes from all battleships. There was such a protest, however, from many officers in the navy that at the instance of the secretary the board reconsidered its decision. It is believ ed that the torpedo tubes with which the Jap battle-hips are equipped are responsible for the damage to the Rus sian battleships in the Port Arthur day attack as the Russian vessels were hit below the water line. Got Dowie On the Run. Melbourne, March 1. John Alexan der Dowie's meeting in the Exhibition building was broken up by the crowd shouting and singing comic songs.

It is with pleasure that I give my hearty endorsement to Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It is the most suc cessful remedy that I know of for the weakened condition of the digestive organs which excessive heat or overwork some times brings, causing indigestion, sick headache, a disagreea ble or bitter taste in the mouth, sleepless nights and a com plication of unnatural conditions, making one feel sick all over. Your remedy is scientifically prepared and well calcu lated to renovate the entire system, cleansing and vitalizing the blood and assisting the stomach to perfect assimilation of the food, which will soon restore health and harmony. Sincerely yours, fudge of nth District Duval County, Florida. The "Golden Medical Discovery" restores the long lost appetite ; it strengthens the weak stomach and corrects the impaired digestion ; it promotes the flow of digestive juices and facilitates the assimilation of the life-giving elements of the food into the blood. When the blood is pure and rich, old inert tissues are torn down, carried off and excreted, and new, healthy muscular tissues replace them. In this way it puts on healthy flesh up to the normal weight and fortifies one against all disease-breeding germs. It allays inflammation of the mucous membranes, soothes the cough, facilitates expectoration, and deepens the breathing, supplying the system with a much needed stock of oxygen. It drives out all impurities and disease germs. $3 9000 Forfeit! Will be cheerfully paid, in lawful money of the United States, by the World's Dispensary Medical Association, of Buffalo, N.

Sando, of Elon, Iowa. WI was troubled, with torpid liver, indigestion, and nervous prostra tion, for about eighte'een months and lost strength so that I was unable to do any work. -Consulted several doctors but without receiving help. They advised me to have an operation for gall stone, which I thought would be the very last step I would take. I then sat down and wrote to you for advice, some five or six months ago, and have since been taking your 4 Golden Medical Discovery.' Can now say that I am well and able to do all my work, besides doing lots of weaving. In the last two months I have woven about four hundred yards of carpet and feel now that I will keep on with it as I like the weaving business so well. I took only eight bottles of the ' Golden Medical Discovery and some of Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. WI will be glad if I can say anything to those who are suffering as I did." ,1 was taken sick nine years ago with fever." writes Mr. M. M. Ward well, of Linwood, Leaven- worth Co., Kans. wHad the doctor and he broke up the fever all right, but I took diarrhea right away ; he couldn't cure it and it became chronic, and then he gave up the case. I got so weak with it and had piles so badly I couldn't lie down, nor hardly sit up. Was that way two or three months ; thought I would 4 never be well again,' but picked up one of Dr. Pierce's Memorandum Books one day and saw your description of catarrh of the stomach. I thought it hit my case. We had a bottle of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery in the house that was got for mother. You recommend it for catarrh of the stomach, so I began taking it. The one bot tle nearly cured me. I got two bottles next time and took one and one-half and was well. I haven't been bothered with diarrhea since."
