"ou know verv w.ll What did ou paint Marj nilen I-ease's picture up tliere; in the dome for? "I didn't paint It there, mid he. 'You did. too. and. not only thit, ou did, not paint any clothe on her.

Just 'ike jou have painted her up In the dome, onlj ou have put a few more curls In her Iiangs and brought down her lips to normal size and left her undressed." The two then went up to the dome and the decorator admitted that they did look alike, hut he declared he had never seen Mrs. Lease nor her picture until it was pointed out to him to-day. "It's mighty strarge; aje, more, it's an outrage," declared the little librarian as her ejes snapped and she gritted her teeth. "What do jou propose to do about it?" "Nothing." replied the decorator. "Well, you will. I will lay m grievance before the executive council and get them to order jou to change the features of that painting so It won't look like Mir. Lease, and paint some clothes oil her, too." "If the executive council orders me to change that picture it will pay the addition al erpenc," said Fedelll "Expense, expense," shouted Mrs. Diggs. "Why, I will tell the council to keep the amount out of my own salarj rather than have the picture of that woman in the dome of this state house. It must be changed." Fedelll told her to present the matter to the council and if it ordered the extra work done, and would pay for it, he would glad ly make the change. Mrs. Diggs sild she would. She rounded up all the members of the council who were in the state house this afternoon and they promised her to consider the matter at the next meeting. KANSAS "STATE TAXES.

The secretary of war has stopped the dispatch of further reinforcements to Porto Rico General Mile reported b cable this morning that the force .it ids command was ample for the purpo-e of completing the conciuest of the island. This leaves all of General Wade's provisional corps of eighteen regiments still ii the United State. All of General Wil son's division except the Third Kentucky and Fifth Illinois have already sailed, and thev- will be allowed to proceed. The two itglments above naired are at Newport New- and will be detained there until the department has arranged for their Turther detail. There are sK brigndes under the com mand of General Wade The First brigade is composed of the First Rhode island. Fourth MI-ourI and Twentj econd New York: the Second brigade, of the First North Carolina. Flr-t Alabama and First Arkansas; the Third brigade of the First New Hampshire.

First Connecticut and the Tirst Delaware; the Sixth brigade of the rirst Maine. Third Tennessee and Fir-t M.irj land. None of the troops under General Avade's, command have jet started. The interesting feature of to-dav 3 news at the war department was the cnble from General Miles stating that he did not need reinforcements, and advising that no more troops be sent to Porto Rico The effect of this dispatch was to -top the embark 1 tion of troops at Newport News?, and to stop General Wade's cori s from sailing. The disposition of troops v hich are not now needed for active service at onco was considered by the department ofllci lis, and the determination wns reached that there would be n general movement from the larger camps. Some of these troops will be sent North, where they will be In a cooler climate, and stationed at camps which are under consideration, but which have not vet been detlnitels selected. In vestigation of a number of places is in progress, with special reference to the health of the camp and water supplv. It is believed bv the authorities that good water will go a long way toward maintain ing the health of the troops. Some regi ments will be removed at once, and those which c innot lw moved probably will be ordered to proceed upon practice marches, the object being to scatter the troops a much as possible aril to relieve the sev eral camps from the effect of concentra tion. The belier is now general among the ofllclals of the war department that con centration in large camps and comparative Inactivity, together with the failure of troop" to take rigid pre cautions, as ad vised by the medical department, hRs beep the cau-e of so much sickness In the vari ous camps It s stated that one reason whj concentration has been allowed to continue and no orders i-sutsl for the prac tice m irehes ,i that the troops might be expected to be called for in 1 short time for service in the held. As this is no long er probable, orders are expected to be is sued verv soon, which will move man of the troops and spread them about the countrj in new camps or upon practice marches. Secretarv Alger has determined to en force every regulation which will improve the health of the various camps of the armv. The following order was l-sued to dav: " ar Department.

Mr. Curzon also saij that Baron von Billow, the Germ in minister for foreign affair-, had sent a memorandum to her mtje-tv's government, sajing that Ger man! had never claimed exclusive privi leges In China: h id made no attempt to exclude other n.-tions from free competi tion In the Shang-Tung peninsula, and had merel informed China that.

The Pekin correspondent of the Daily Mail sis: "Endeavors are being made to obtain from Washington an official statement about the Nicaraguan canal. It is felt that, if this project wero assured, the gravlt of the situation would be relieved, us the canal would establish greater op portunities for Joint protection by Greit Britain and America for their interests in the. far East.

"The concession repre-cnts the essence of Great Britain's future in China. If China ields ta Rus-ian men ices, the prospects of the Shan Si svndic.tte are Imperiled. It is a foregone conclusion that M. Pavloff will demand a revocation bv the Chinee gov ernment ot the Shan Si contract. Private cntcrpri-e will avail nothing against the representations of Russia, and Great Brit ain will be barred from the commercial advantages which that agreement carries " The degree of Interest and appreciation at the importance and possibilities of the Eist, to which England has been aroused, is evidenced by the action of the asso ciated chambers of commerce, in commis sioning Rear Admiral Lord Charles Beres ford.

The Dall Mail urges the government to AIDED BY MRS. PINKHAM. Mrs. Vf. K. Pjctok, Yonngtown, North Dakota, writes about her strug gle to regain health after the birth of her little g:rl: " Dear Mns. Pivkham: It is with pleasure that I add my testimony to your list, hoping that it may induce others to avniUtliemselves of v our val uable medicine. "After the birth of my little girl, three jears ago, my health was very poor. I had leueorrhcea badly, and a terrible bearing-down pain which gradually grew worse, until I could do no work. Also had headache nearly all the time, and dizzy feelings. Men struations were very profuse, appear ing every two weeks. " I took medicine from a good doctor, but it seemed to do no good. I was becoming alarmed over my condition, when I read jour advertisement in a paper. I sent at once for a bottle of Lvdia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com ponnd, and after taking two-thirds of the bottle I felt so much better that I send for two more. After using three bottles I felt as strong and well as any one. "I think it is the best medicine for female weakness ever advertised, and recommend it to every lady I meet suf fering from this trouble." Maternity is a wonderful experience and many women approach it wholly unprepared. Childbirth under right conditions need not terrify women. The advice of Mrs. Pinkham is freely offered to all expectant mothers, and her advice is beyond question the most valuable to be obtained. If Mrs. Pax ton had written to Mrs. Pinkham be fore confinement she would have been saved much suffering. Mrs. Pinkham' address is Lynn, Mass. copy Germany in its dealings with China. The Daily News sas; "It now appears that .1 German, as well as a Russian veto Is in force. We hope Sir Claude MncDonnld will have the skill to tind means to avert the threatened check mate." The. eiuestion excites, almost equal discus sion on the Continent, though the Berlin papers are inclined to make light of the af fair, and to think that, as before, England will yield to Russian aiplomacy. The Par is papers, on the contrary, take tho matter serious!. The Journal des Dtbat-. a cau tious and moderate paper, thinks that "when the Soudan campaign h? ended. En gland by her arrogant attitude will pro voke one or two powers to ucn an extent as to m ike a conflict inev itable, and then will seek an alliance either with the United states or Japan.
