It may be noted that in carYytng out the wishes of tho American and Brl - Ish Officials at Apia, leaving the Ger? mans out of the calculation. Admiral Kautz has taken direct Issue with the contention of the German government that the majority shall not control, but the best opinion here is that, as the Ad? miral acted to meet an emergency threatening life and property, and als < acted In the direction of a Btrlci en [ forcemcnt of the terms of ti e Berlin treaty, bis attitude must, be held to he unexceptionable.

Beware of the Doctors' Patchwork; You Can .Cure Yourself at Home. Then? is not the slightest doubt that tho doctors do more harm than goc>d in treating Contagious Blood Poison; many victims of tiiis loathsome disease would bo much better off to-day if they hnd never allowed them? selves to "be dosed on mercury and potash, the only remedies which tho doctors ever give for blood poison. Tho doctors are wholly unable to get rid of this vi!o poison, and only nttompl to heal up the outward appearance of the disease?the sores and eruptions. This theydo by driving the poison into tho system, and endeavor to keep it shut in with their constant doses of potash and mercury .The mouth and throat and other delicate parts then break out into sores. And the fight is continued indefinitely, tho drugs doing the system 'I had spont more damage than the disease itself Mr. H. L.
