DYSPEPSIA
TJpto a few weeks ago I oonatdered
myself the champion Dyspeptlo of
Amerloa. During the year that I
have been afflicted I have tried
almost everything claimed to be a
apeolflo for Dyspepsia in the hope of
finding something that would allbrd
permanent relief, I had about made
up my mind to abandon all medl
olnes when I notloed an endorsement
of Simmons Liver Regulator by a
Fromlnent Georgian, a jurist whom
knew, and conoluded to try Its
effects in my case. I have used but
two bottles, and am satisfied that I
have struck the right thing at last.
I felt lte beneficial eiToote almoet Im
mediately. Unlike all other prepara
tions of a similar kind, no special
Instructions are required as to what
one shall or shall not eat. This fact
alone ought to commend It to all
troubled with Dyspepsia.

Pain Balm and was so sure that it
would help me, that 1 procured a bottle.
It did help me right from tbe start but
it took rive 60 cent bottles to cure me,
so you can guess how bad I was, as one
or two bottles will cure any ordinary
case. It is a grand good medicine and
has done me a power of good, and x
hnna vrvn will nuhlish the facts in Vour
valuable paper, that everybody may
know it."
As the remedy referred to is of home
manufacture we concluded to call on

The Lonib Prize Essays on Public Health.
The Amerioan Publio Health Association
is a voluntary organization, having for its
object "the advancement of sanitary science
and the promotion of measures for the
practical application of publio hygiene."
Its membership is very largo, and includes
representatives from nearly every state in
the Union, who have been "selected with
special reference to their acknowledged in
terest in or devotion to sanitary studies and
allied sciences, and to the practical appli
cation of the same." At its twelfth aunual
meeting, held in St Louin, Missouri, in the
autumn of 1884, a puhho-spiritecUiand phil
anthropic citizen of Rochester, N. Y., Mr.
Henry Loinb, deeply impressed with the
practical importance of its deliberations,
approached one of tbe loading members and
said, "I see what yon want. You have
an abundanoe of light, but your light must
be hidden under a bushel because you have
no means of disseminating it. I propose
to assist you if it is acceptable." He made
a generous offer of money, to be expended
in prizes for approved papers on certain
specified subjects, which should be suited,
by their popular style, for the education of
the general publio, nd yet contain a elear
exposition of tbe most advaneed views on
the subjects selected.
The final outcome of this genorons offer,
and of the aotion of the several committees
of award appointed by the Association, was
the publication of four exceedingly valuable
treatises on the following subjects:
No. 1. Healthy Homes and Foods for the
Working Classes. By Prof. Viotor 0.
Vaughan, M. D., Ann Arbor, Michigan.
No, 2. The Sanitary Conditions and
Necessities of School-Houses and School
Life. By D. F. Lincoln, M. D., Boston,
Moss.
No. 3. Disinfection and Individual Pro
phylaxis against Infectious Diseases. By
George M. Sternberg, M. D., Major and
Surgeon U. S. A.
No. 4. The Preventable Causes of Disease,
Injury, and Death in American Manufac
tories and Workshops, and tbe Best Means
and Appliances for Preventing and Avoid
ing Them. By George H. Ireland, Spring
field, Mass.
These papers, selected by the Committees
of Award as the best of a very large num
ber presented in competition, are exceed
ingly valuable. They have been published
in one volume, and also separately in pam
phlet form. The prioes of these essays are
aa follows: No. 1, 10 cents; Nos. 2, S, and
4, 5 cents each. In book form, well bound
in cloth, 60 cents. To be had at the book
stores, or ly addressing Dr. Irving A. Wat
ton. Secretary A. P. H. A., Concord, N. H.
It would be well for the publio health if
a oopy could be placed ia every school,
every workshop, and every home in Ameri-

Stands by Sonthorn California.
Los Aaoeles, Cal., Feb. 20, 1888.
Editor Fbek Pbess: Tour letter of
long Ago was duly received and
should have been answered long
since, but I thought I would wait and
see if th bottom teas out of Califor
nia, as the papers east of the Rockies
have so long insisted was the case. I
am Borrv to see the malicious mis
representations that are being con
stantly spread before the people of
the oaBt, when the faot remains that
California is as always hitherto, the
most perfeot plaoe for homes that
can be found anywhere, and is just as
prosperous and delightful as it was
months ago, when all of you "press
fellows'' were willing and anxious to
set forth its glories. The true in
wardneis of the change is not that
California is a fraud any more now
than at any time hitherto, but that
the furore to come to the golden
shore, and the immense sums of mon
ey being brought here, combined to
work disastrous results in depleting
the frost bitten regions of much of
their wealth and thousands of their
best citizens, for it is a noted fact,
that we have less tramps and worth'
less people in Southern California
thm any other portion of the country
I know anything about I do not
blame the good people east for desir
ing to keep their people and money
from coming here, for the bone and
sinew, with the means they control,
cannot be spared from any seotion of
the oountrv- in suoh numbers and
Bums as have been turned in this di
rection, but at the same time the
disputable means resorted to are no
credit to those who seem to think they
cannot accomplish their object in any
other way. 1 must say thtt I have
not seen in your paper such a state
ment as I speak of, and they may
creep into the columns of any paper
sometimes, where the management
is divided. But tbe course of the
Nowses," and many 'other eastern
papers is simply villianous.' If they
would allow any corrections of their
misstatements, it would seem as if
they wished to be fair, but I happen
to know tbe "News" at Dallas, will
not publish anything now, favorable
or in justification of California.
Of course the people here dislike
the manner in which things are mis
represented, but have no fears that
our country will be seriously injured
by these attacks. Every man and
family, who come here and stay long
enough to take off their hats and
take a bath, are ready to testify in
our behalf; and when you remember
that not a single person who has ever
come to California and remained,
whether rich or poor, but has bet
tered his condition, and that all of
these have friends and acquaintances
who will, to a great extent, be gov
erned by their experience, we do
not apprehend that there will be any
serious check in the tide of immigra
tion and flow of capital to our shores.
You will no doubt call to mind the
fact that certain peripatetic scribblers
used to skip through Texas, and
while not staying long enough to
have a shirt washed, and of conse
quence not being in position to know
of what they were writing, would
write back to the old states, accounts
of Texas which were totally vioious
and almost devoid of truth. We
Texas people denounced them as
they deserved.
No one can come to California, stay
a few days (perhaps in some of our
short, rainy periods) and be able to
pass or form any matured opinion as
to its merits or demerits, nor indeed
of any other country. I have known
persons to have interviews published
in the News wbo came into and out
of the state, inside of two weeks, wbo
never got off the cars exoept at one
or two points, and then write np (or
down) the country, describe places

tTASHINGTOX LETTER.
(Prom Our Regular Correspondent)
Washington, Mar. 9, 1888.
"Anything to delay the bill," is tbe
seoret motto that seems to have been
adopted by the republican members
of the Ways and Means committee
of the Honse in their dealings with
the now perfected bill to reduce the
war tariff, under whioh the industries
of the country are now staggering.
The whole committee has held two
meetings this week, at both of whioh
the republipan members plainly show
ed that they intended to delay the
report of the bill to the House as long
as possible. It is well for tbe coun
try to know who is responsible for
this delay.
The new Chinese treaty is complete
and will shortly be signed by Secre
tary Bayard for the United States,
and by the Chinese Minister for the
Emperor of China. The treaty con
tains rigid provisions against the im
portation of Chinese laborers into
this country. Only those Chinamen
having prop erty valued at $1,000 or
more, shall have the privilege of re
turning to this country, should they
visit China.
Tbe republican members of tbe
House are very much divided on the
tariff question, and unless tbe repub
lican minority of the Ways and
Means committee shall bring forward
a bill reduoing the revenue to as
great an extent as the Mills bill, it is
extremely likely that many of them
will vote with the demoorats for that
measure. Their constituents demand
that they shall vote for a reduction
of the revenues of the government,
and they dare not refuse, even if they
wanted to.
Mr. Thomas, a republican repre
sentative from Illinois, introduced a
bill in the House to whioh all good
oitizens can say amen. It providing
that any person or firm who shall
nse the picture of any female, living
or dead, who is the wife, daughter,
mother or sister of any citizen of the
United States as an advertisement
without tbe written consent of the
person whose likeness is to be so used
shall be guilty of a high inisdomean
or. and liable to a fine not less than
$500, nor more than $5,000, and to
be imprisoned until the fiae is paid.
A rumor from New York, started
probably by the republicans, says
there is a strong anti-Cleveland fee!
ing among the democratio members
of Congress. Your correspondent
has diligently seached for this feeling,
but failed to find it. Every democrat
questioned was enthusiastic for the
renomination of Cleveland, and tbey
all expressed a belief that be would
be nominated by acclamation and
triumphantly elected.

Bank saloon, the only one now run

in commemoration of tbe closing of

and yet has a pallid brightness, the
face upon whose cheeks aatnre paints
a rose of singular beauty and .flush,
more marked in contrast with the al
abaster appearance of tbe forehead

is one of those whom the skilled phy-.
sioian will tell you is one who will
some day dread the funereal month

Consumption, they tell ns is caused
by this, that and the other (thing, by
miorobes in the air, by micro-organ-.
isms in the blood, by deficient nutr. .
tion, by a thousand and ous things,
but whatever the cause, decay begins
with a cough and ihe .remedy that '
will effectually stop the cause of that
oough cures the disease of the lungs.
That is all there is oi it.
That oough is an evidence of a
wasting. To stop it effeotually, a
remedy must be used that will
searoh out the cause, remove that
and tbe heal the lung and do away
with the oough. This is the power,
speoial to itself, possessed by War
ner's Log Cabin Cough and ' Con-'
sumption romedy. This is no new
fangled notion of narootios and poi- '
son, but an old-fashioned preparation
of balsams, roots and herbs, such as
was used by our anoestors many
years ago, the formula of whioh baa

facturers at great trouble and ex-

t is a system-searcher and an up
builder and a consumption expellant
Where others fail it wins, because it
gets at the constitutional cause and 1
removes it from the system.' ' "
J. W. Hensaw, of Greensboro, Pa,. '
on Jan. 15, 1888, reported that "he ,
had derived more real benefit, for the
length of time, from Warner s Log
Cabin Cough and Consumption rem
edy than he had for years from the
best state physicians.
If you have a oough, night sweats.
"positive assurance in your own
mind that yon, on yon, nave ao

funereal month of March will claim
you, unless promptly and faithfully
you use the artiole named. If other ,
remedies have failed try this one thor-.
ughly. If others are offered, insist the
more on trying this unequaled prep
aration. Some persons are prone to con
sumption and tbey sbould never al
