Hood's Sarsaparilla has had remarkable success in curing every form of scrofula. The most severe and painful run ning sores, swellings in the neck, or goitre, humor in the eyes, causing partial or total blindness, have yielded to the powerful effects of this medicine. It thoroughly removes every trace of impurity from the blood and builds up the weakened system. The Worst Type. "My son was afflicted with the worst type of scrofula, and on the recommendation of my Druggist I gave him Hood's Sarsaparilla. Today he is sound and well, notwithstanding it was said there was not enougli medicine In Illinois to effect a cure." J. Christian, Illiopolis, 111, What is Scrofula It is that impurity in the blood, which, accumu lating in the glands of the neck, produces un sightly lumps or swellings; which causes painful running sores on the arms, legs, or feet; which developes uleers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often causing blindness or deafness ; which is the origin of pimples, cancerous growths, or many other manifestations usually ascribed to " humors. » It Is a more formidable enemy than consumption or cancer alone, for scrofula combines tho worst possible features of both. Being the most ancient, it is the most general of all diseases or affections, for very few persons aro entirely free from it. How can it be cured 7 By taking Hood's Sarsa parilla, which, by the cures it has accomplished, often when other medicines have failed, has proven itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine for this disease. For all affections of the blood Hood's Sarsaparilla is unequalled, and some of the cures it has effected are really wonderful. If you suffer from scrof lia in any of its various forms, be sure to give Hood's Sarsaparilla a trial. Hood's Sarsaparilla Hold by all druggists. $1; sixforgS. Freparedonly by C. I.

The committee appointed to investi gate the charges of bribery in connec tion with the senatorial contest in the California legislature reported to the senate Wednesday, finding that mon ey had come from the Southern Pacific company and within 13 hours after it had arrived it was in the state li brary, but who handled it or for what purpose it was handled the committee did not determine. At Monday's meeting of the Methodist Ministers' association, held in Chicago, a long report of the Mafia lynching in New Orleans was presented, in which the Mafia and unrestricted immigration were denounced. A resolution accom panying it sympathized with New Or leans in the impotency of its legal ma chinery against the Mafia, but declared mob law un-christian and un-American. After a brief but heated discussion the matter was laid on the table. A Goshen, Indiana, dispatch says: Miss Mary E. Dewey, a well-to-do spin ster of this city, who moved here from Canton, Ohio, twelve years ago, and has since moved in the best society, has ap plied for a pension, claiming that she served as a man throughout the war in the Twenty-sixth Ohio volunteers, under the alias of Charles Dewey, and that during an engagement she received a gunshot wound in the left leg, which forms the basis of her claim. The proofs Bhe brings forward are genuine and con vincing. At Chicago Charles Button, a repairer in the employ of the fire alarm telegraph service, entered an Italian barber shop Sunday night, and sitting himself in a chair, called upon any member of the Mafia to give him a shave. He also an nounced that he had a hand in settling the New Orleans trouble. The Italians, upon hearing this, fell upon Button en masse and beat him so badly with pokers and chairs that he will probably die. Three of the barbers have been arrested. Button, it is believed, was not in New Orleans at all, and was simply trying to be funny. Governor Toole has offered the follow ing rewards: Five hundred dollars re ward is hereby offered for the apprehen sion and delivery to the sheriff of Fer gus county, Montana, of one Al. H.

In the trial of James A. Miller, alias James Muldoon, for smuggling China men into this oountiy, in progress be fore District Judge Cox at Utica, New York, Attorney De Angelis, who was as «igned to defend the prisoner, raised an interesting point. The Chinamen came to this country by a row-boat across the Niagara river. The statute provides that it is a misdemeanor to aid or abet any Chinese person to enter the United States by land or to aid or abet any such to land from a vessel. De Angeles ar gued, and the government admitted that a row-boat was not a vessel within the meaning of the statute. De Angeles ar gued that coming by boat could not be construed to mean coming by land. The effect at thie construction of the statute t of of or B of is the to would enable Chinamen to come to this country by row-boats. The court held for the present he would hold the stat ute broad enough to cover coming to this country by what ever means, but promised to give the question further consideration and change his ruling if wrong. An Albuquerque, N. M. dispatch says: A great deal of distress is reported among cattle, sheep and other live 6tock in this territory. Representative Frank Hubble has just returned from his ranches near Zunie and Salt Lake, in Socorro county. He tells a distressing story about the condition of the sheep. He lost in the last three months over 30,000 head from starving and freezing. He also reports that the loss is general among all heavy sheep owners. The weather has been cold and the ground covered with snow and sheep cannot get anything to eat. Such weather as that of the last two months has never been experienced before. In a letter to the editor of the Wayne News by Capt. Anse Hatfield, better known as "Devil Anse," he says that a general amnesty has been declared in the Hatfield-McCoy fued; the war spirit in him has abated and he rejoices in the prospect of peace. The letter will serve to quell all disturbances so far as the Hatfield side is concerned, and it is thought that a like letter has been pub lished in Kentucky. This state of af fairs is the result of the marriage of one of the Hatfields to Miss McCoy and the truce and peace congress held shortly after. This fued has been in existence since 1873 and there have been no less than 150 deaths among the participants. A letter dated Honolulu, March 12, says: The new commercial treaty be tween the United States and Hawaii has been received from Washington and sub mitted to a secret conference between the queen and her cabinet. The new treaty permits a full and free inter change of all products, natural aud manufactured, of the two countries. It is not known what action will be taken by Hawaii, but it is stated that the in fluence of English friends of the Haw aiian queen and the resident British di plomats will prevent her from accepting it in its present form. It is almost con ceded that she will turn to Canada and Australia for an arrangement similar to the treaty heretofore existing between Hawaii and the United States. A Phillipsburg special of the 19th says: John Price was married tonight to Miss Annie McCormack, by Judge Connolly. Mr. Price is the man who has achieved a world wide reputation from the fact that he sheds his skin, finger nails, toenails and all, once a year regu larly. His is a very peculiar case and has puzzled the best physicians of the United States. Mr. Price was in Phila delphia, New York, Chicago and other large cities last year and was examined by many prominent physicians, but all of them failed to find any cause for it, as he is in every other way in perfect health. He was offered large sums by managers of museums and others, but he is a hardworking man and refused. He and his bride will probably shortly go to Europe, where he will be examined by the medical talent of the old world. Timothy Ilealy, M. P., when leaving the court room at Cork Monday, at the conclusion of a trial in which he is in terested, was soon surrounded by a howling mob, who followed him along the streets and made a number of at tempts to assault him. The crowd fin ally became so violent that Healy, to es cape his tormentors, was compelled to beat a retreat ana take refuge in a dress ing room in th© Victoria hotel. This proved only a temporary place of safety, for before Healy could recover from the effects of the mob's rough usage, a man suddenly rushed into the room, turned out the light and then struck Healy a powerful blow in the face, smashing his eye-glass into pieces. When assistance arrived and the room was lighted Healy was found to have been badly injured, as he had received numerous cuts from t he broken pieces of his eye-glass and blood was pouring down his face in streams. He was removed to a room and a physician summoned. Three doc tors have made an examination of the wounds in his eyes and express fears that his injuries may result in the loss of his sight. to by * by ed as the for the not or 50 of: no it Death of General Johnston. General Joseph E. Johnston died shortly after 11 o'clock Saturday night, alt his home in Washington, of heart failure. General Johnston was the last, save General Beauregard, of the six full gen erals of the confederacy. He was born at Cherry Grove, Virginia, in 1807; he graduated at West Point in 1829; was appointed second lieutenant of the 4th cavalry and saw active service in the Black Hawk Indian expedition; pro moted in 1836, aid-de-camp on General Scott's staff in the Seminole war; par ticipated in all important battles con nected with Scott's campaign in Mexico; thrice brevetted for gallantry during this war, and in 1848 was mustered out of service as lieutenant colonel of volun teers, to be reinstated by congress in the army with the rank of captain of topo graphical engineers. He was commis sioned quartermaster general of the United States army in June, 1860, but resigned the following April to enter the confederate service, in which, as major general of volunteers, he assisted General Lee in organizing the men pour ing into Richmond. His subsequent service throughout the war is well known. After the war he became suc cessively president of a railroad com pany in Arkansas, an express company in Virginia, and an insurance agent in Georgia. He was elected to congress from Richmond district in 1877 and next saw public life as commissioner of rail roads during the administration of Cleveland. The General Land Law. Sec. 9.

Park Letter. Mammoth Hot Springs, ) Yellowstone National Park k March 24th, 1801. ) Editor Enterprise: In the Enter prise of March 14th I notice a paragraph taken from the Anaconda Standard in which its Washington correspondent gives a very fair statement of the stand ing of the Montana Mineral railway in to ' ' ' ' congress. It was indeed an unpopular bill, tacked as a rider to a meritorious one, defining the boundary of the Park enlarging its territory and creating a civil government for its protection and the preservation of life and property. In justice to Judge Payson, chairman of the public lands committee. I must state that at the first meeting of his committee he favored the segregation of the land north of the Yellowstone river, for the purjiose of giving free ac cess to any railroad. This was entirely consistant with the judge's record as an opponent of railroad monopolies and special privileges. But, as he informed me, when at the second meeting of his committee, he found the superintendent of the Park, Capt. Boutelle, strongly recommending the passage of the bill, with its Montana Mineral railway rider, he withdrew his opposition and signed the report with the majority of his com mittee. Judge Payson never called this bill up on any day set for his committee, but on September 29th, the day before the close of the first session of the 51st congress, Hon. Thos. R. Stockdale of Mississippi asked unanimous consent to put upon its final passage S. bill 491. Anderson of Kansas offered to disjiense with the reading of the bill, provided that section of it was read which related to the building of a railroad in the Park. When it was found that such a section had been injected into the bill, it was promptly negatived by Anderson, Adams, Dunnell, Holman, Vaux and Candler of Mass., all of whom objected to this attempt to run an omnibus bill through the house in hot haste, at the close of a session. At the second session, the Montana Mineral railway bill would have fared worse, for many of the members of the lands committee had become disgusted with it and were in active opposition to it. If the people of Livingston still hope to see Cinnabar and Cooke connected by rail I would advise them to consider the proposition contained in the following paragraph of mine published in the Enterprise of 1888: "While most earnestly opposing any attempt to cut from the Park that por tion of Montana upon which the govern ment has expended large sums of money as it has up the Gardiner canyon be tween Gardiner City and Mammoth Hot Springs, there can be no valid objection to making the northwestern boundary of the Park follow Soda Butte creek to the east fork of the Yellowstone river, thence down to where the Yellowstone river forms a junction with the Gardiner river. There are good reasons why this should become the boundary line. It would interfere with no established Park road. It would cut off nothing of in terest to the Park, but would give Cooke City an opportunity to construct a rail road up the course of these streams by which it could send its valuable ores out and import coke and mining supplies. It would be a simple act of justice to render every facility for the develop ment of this rich mining region." These were my views in 1888, they are my views today. It will be much more difficult to clear the way for a railroad to Cooko City in the 52nd congress than it was in the 51st. The doubtful methods, to me a mild term, by which the Montana Mineral railway attempted to secure its charter has raised an opposition in congress that will be hard to overcome. Many of them say, as Vaux said to me, "I am op posed to cutting off any part of this great park to accommodate a railroad. It would be a bad precedent; clip one . corner off to suit this railroad and soon another railroad company will ask us to clip it again to accommodate them." This and similar views, in opposition to cutting off or chartering a railroad through the Park are entertained by many congressmen; it will therefore need unity of action to carry this meas ure through botlf houses of congress. On March 23rd, notwithstanding tho deep snow still overlying the terraces, Ed Wilson, the famous Park scout, gal lantly undertook to break track, becom ing guide, philosopher and interpreter to Mrs. Charlie Stuart and Mrs. H. B. Henderson. This party has the honor of being the first to ascend Terrace mountain in 1891. They saw the Nar rowguage terrace; climbed the Orange; visited Bath lake; drank at the mineral springs; peeped into Stygian cave and into the Stalactic cave, the mouth of which was barred with ice; discovered a baby geyser which the ladies declared was a beauty, and forthwith there was a christening, and the new darling was named the Surprise. The trained eye of the guide discovered and pointed out the tracks and signs where a band of elk had recently passed by the Devil's Kitchen. But the most beautiful of all the beautiful things they saw was Roth terrace on the Bethesda plateau. This terrace had been dried up for several years and had lost all of its beauty. Now there were two rythmic waves of boiling water flowing over its terraces. It was a painted poem in which all the colors in the rainbow struggled for su premacy. Mr. Wilson ventures the opinion that when the white curtain of winter is lifted the Roth terrace will stand forth the crowning glory and queen of the terraces, filling the place formerly held by the Minerva terrace and Cleopatra's Bowl, both of which are now pallid and grey. But the novelty of the day, in Darwinian praseology, might be termed the "descent of woman." From the Diana terraces to the base of the giant's thumb, the snow was so soft and deep that the ladies and their guide frequently vanished out of sight. By superhuman efforts the guide fished them several times to the surface. At last out of pity for the gallant Wilson, the taller of the two ladies gathered her self together and sailed down the em bankment, feet first like a Scandinavian snow shoe. The other, to be original, choose a horizontal position and move ingbyherown momentum and that of the mountain landed safely at the foot of Liberty Cap, when she arose and bowed gracefully to the sphinx. This original "descent of women," from the Dina to the Hymen terraces was the closing scene of this first day among the terraces. G. U- Henderson. Fatal Shooting At Billing*. A quarrel between James Rome and John Golden, better known as Arkan saw John, resulted in a shooting scrape in which Rome received a probably fatal wound. Both men occupied a cabin in the third ward of Billings, where they did their own cooking. A dispute arose between them over a grocery bill of $0, and Rome, who is said to have been con siderably under the influence of liquor, used language exceedingly offensive to Arkansaw. The latter left the cabin, armed himself with a 44-calibre revolver and returning demanded that Rome re tract what he had said. This he refused to do, applying offensive epithets to Arkansaw, who deliberately drew the revolver and shot Rome, the bullet en tering the abdomen, where it lodged. Immediately after the shooting Arkan saw John skipped out, and has not yet been apprehended, although officers at once started upon his trail and sent a description to all the surrounding tele graph stations. Rome was still alive at last accounts, but no hope is entertained of his recovery. Card of Thanks.
