NOTHING ELSE CURES.
Why Paine's Celery Compound is the Best Remedy "When everything else has failed, Paine's Celery Compound has brought me back to health." The thousands of instances where this has been said the scores of peo ple in every community who have told this simple story; the downright, hard, cold facts; the grateful acknowledge ments of men and women who have s-uffered from the diseases that have Their origin in impaired nervous sys tems and sluggish, impure blood these are what have made Paine's Celery Compound far and away the one rem edy above all others that physicians prescribe and the public endorse. It is by merit, and merit alone, that Paine's Celery Compound has achieved its wonderful pre-eminence, not only in this country but throughout the civilized world. After the unfortunate person who is ailing because the blood needs new life, and the nerves require nature's food, finally tries Paine's Celery Com pound, and gets Immeaiate relief, an other is added to the great multitude of people whose praise of this rem edy has made the demand for it many times larger than that of all other remedies put together. A person must have lost all confi dence in his fellowmen who can read the following letter and not be con vinced of the great benefit Paine's Cel ery Compound has done, is doing, and will continue to do for sick and rer vous people wherever it finds them. When a sick man or woman finds that be or she has taken a remedy that has actually done for him or her all that is claimed for it it can be safely predicted what will follow. Ev ery acquaintance, sick or well, will be told about it. Gen Rodriguez has written down his experience in the hope of helping other3 who may be so afflicted. The general is today connected with the 1 Neighbor- f hood Notes S I TEXAS. TO IMPROVE THE BRAZOS. Senator Culberson of Texas, will pro pose in congress an amendment to the river and harbor bill to improve the tfrazos river from Richmond to Old Washington in accordance with the second plan of the report of Captain Riche. appropriating $215,000.

Said ship channel shall be begun at or near the mouth of Sabine river and excavated thence to the Neches river, thence to Sabine. Should the owners of the channel commonly known as the Port Arthur canal do nate the same free of charge, cost or incumbrance to the United States gov ernment, then the ship channel provid ed for by this amendment shall con nect with said Port Arthur canal and thereafter the government f.hall maintain said canal. He will offer an other amendment also to the rivers and harbors bill to increase the appropria tion for the Trinity river under the contract system from $600,000 to ?S50, 000. SHERMANITE SHOCKED. Henry W. Brace, a ranchman from Sherman went into a saloon in St. Joseph. Mo., and looked into a slot machine where you drop a nickel in the slot and see something sensational. He received more of a sensation than he expected when he dropped his nickel In the slot and let the obscene pano rama pass before his lusty eyes. The in the World. civil government of Havana. During the struggle for Cuban independence he rose from the ranks to the grade of brigadier-general, and in 1S96 won decisive victory over Gen. Campos. Gen. Rodriguez was a very sick man. He was near nervous prostration as one can be and live. After five years suffering his first good night's sleep came Immediately upon his taking Paine's Celery Compound. His letter reads: "Dear Sirs: For five years I had not had a good night's rest. I had a ser oius case of nervous prostration, my serength seemed to be leaving me, and I folt weak and tired all the time. My blood was impure and I suffered from pains in ihe back, constipation, and an inactive liver. I had no cppetite and no ambition. I was constantly con suiting physicians, and it seemed as though I was nearly ready to die. Providence sent me a bottle of Paine i Celery Compound, and this great rem edy cured mo of all the irritatle symp toms with which I was afflicted. can frankly and sincerely say that had it not been for' Paine's Celery Com pound, I would today either be in the cemetery or in the Insane asylum, Among the prominent people who les tify to the virtues of Paine's Celery Compound are Santiago Rodriguez, M. D.; J. M. Bracho. Edwardo de la Torre, Porfirio Masvidal, E. F. Gato. O. E. Pineda, Pedro Herrera y Hermanos A Rincon, Andreas Angulo, Aurelio de Varona Quesada. Very truly yours. "Gen. J. M. Rodriguez. No remedy ever had the outspoken approval' of men so highly esteemed In business and professional life. No remedy ever deserved so well of peo ple in the ordinary walks of life, and none ever got such instant recognition from the discerning public. Ita sue cess has been confined to no one class of society. pictures he saw were of his wife in four nude positions. He Is a stiong man and accustomed to rough ways but that shock almost floored him. He then went to all the other saloons and in every slot machine In town he found the same pictures. He says he will bring suit for heavy damages against the manufacturers of the machines for using bis wife's pictures, although he is not living with her now. She dis appeared from his ranch last November and he has been searching for her ever since. She was a milliner by trade be- fore their marriage and Brace thinks that he will find his runaway wife working in a millinery shop some where. He has considerable wealth and he spends a great deal of money and time in going from one town to another in search of her, still believing that she is virtuous and will return to him if he can find her. How the ma chine people secured the pictures is a mystery to him. OCTOPUS AFTER BEAUMONT. The Standard Oil company is report ed to be making an adroit campaign to get control or the new Texas oil fields at Beaumont and In that vicinity. An agent of the company in its Kentucky territory wrote a letter to President K. J. Kivlin, of the Dallas Cooperage company in which the writer asked to be furnished the names of Dallas and other Texas capitalists who would be liable to take financial interest in the new fields, and says among other statements. "Please do not consider me as intruding because of this; a mat ter of employment requires me to do so." The letter is written on Standard Oil company stationery and signed by the local agent at the town from which it is mailed. MONKEYED WITH A PISTOL. Bartlett Cooper, a young man eigh teen years or age, or Memphis, Tenn., who has been visiting his uncle .T:dge J. F. Cooper, in Ft. Worth some time, shot himself while fooling with a load ed pistol. The pistol was a 38-caiiber revolver and he was sitting on the edge of the bed "monkeying" with it, he said, when it was discharged. BAD MAN KILLED. At Beeville Deputy Sheriff Neal Rlx of Kennedy, was shot and almost in stantly killed by Walter Nations. Rix was a local "bad man" and about a year ago he had a difficulty with Na tions. Their first meeting was in a restaurant in Beeville. At sight of Nations Rix started to pull his gun but Nations was too swift for him and shot him before he could shoot. Rix had killed two or three men btit was always acquitted on trial. The bullet entered like it was going straight for his heart but was deflect ed by a rib. which saved the young man's life. The bullet passed out, on ly making a flesh wound, but being so close to the heart caused such a shock to that organ that it was thought for some time that he would recover. Starting for the heart as the millet did. caused many to believe that it was a case of attempted suicide. TEXAS HEALTH OFFICERS. A number of the county health offi cers of the state met at Temple and or ganized a permanent association. known as the "Health Officers of Tex as. The present situation in regara to smallpox and scarlet fever in the state was also discussed.

Besides the large sum in all kinds of coin on his person he had $2200 deposited in San Francisco and a certificate of stock of 600 in an Australian bank. He was buried at Blum. Why a man with so much money and other evi dences of weaUh was tramping is a mystery. SOUTHWESTERN ELECTRIC MEN.

The press of the various countries ot Latin-America show a cordial Interest In the Tan-American Exposition. It is recognized that their co-operation is es sential to the end that the Exposition may adequately represent the progress of ail the states and countries of this hemisphere. As a rule the editors of newspapers and other publications in the countries to the south of the United States display a very favorable attl tude toward the enterprise. I!. B. Lo pez, editor and proprietor of La Corre- spondencia ic Porto Kioo. has become so enthusiastic over the Exposition that he writes to the Press Department that he is about to come to Buffalo to see for himself the progress made in the development of the Exposition. He will be accompanied by his family. Many other editors of the Latin-American press have also announced their in tention to attend the Exposition, and inquiries are injuring in from these countries regarding steamboat and rail road routes. Many editors and 'corre spondents from Central and South American countries have already vis ited the Exposition grounds. Wisconsin's Bnlldlag-. Commissioners from Wisconsin, who have charge of the exhibits from that state at the Pan-American Exposition, have selected n site for the State build Ing. About -0 acres have been set apart on the eastern side of the Exposition grounds for state and foreign build ings. The site chosen for the Wiscon sin building is nearly opposite the large buildings of the National governments Just south of one of the mirror lakes and south of the Ohio building. It will overlook the Esplanade, with its won derful fountains and gardens, and a number of the large buildings will be In full view. The Wisconsin commis sion are Willard A. Van Brnnt and George P.. Burrows of Madison. B. E. Edwards of Lacrosse, Charles Reyn olds of Sturgeon Bay and George II. l'ule of Kenosha. Wisconsin will spend 2o,000 on her building and exhibits at Buffalo. A Inlqne Claim. The following unique claim is posted on a mine in the Grand Encampment. in Wyoming: "We found It, and we claim it by the right of founding It. It's our"n. It's 750 feet In every direc tion except southwest and northeast, and there is 300 feet on each side of this writin. It's called the Bay Horse, and we claim even the spurs, and we don't want nobody jumping on this Bay Horse that's what these trees Is around here for, and we've got the same piece of roie that we had down in old Missouri." Piplesa Apples, a New Discovery. For some years we have enjoyed the pipless oranges, but it was not until quite recently that a fruit grower suc ceeded in producing a seedless apple. The fruits have been seen by many in terested in pomology, and In a few years' time a good supply of these pip- less apples will doubtless be found on the market. It Is said, too, that these new apples are superior In flavor to the ordinary kinds. Already high prices are being paid for the trees, which for some time yet will be bought up by rich amateurs.
