Manila, Jan. 29.—The condition of
Captain David D. Porter"» marines who
took part in the expedition Into the
interior of Samar, is much worse than
previously described. They suffered
fearful harships and were without food
for several days. The natives who ac
companied the marines claimed they
were unable to distinguish the edible
roots, which the marines did not be
lieve. The anger of the marine* against
the natives is intense None of the
latter returned with the marines.
The marines suffered so acutely from
starvation that they ate raw the fleab
of two does.
When Capt. Porter and the first three
of his men staggered into camp they
were delirious and difficulty was ex
perienced in ascertaining the where
abouts of their companions.
Williams, of the First infantry, head
ed the relief expedition in the face
of a torrential rainstorm which flooded
He succeeded In reaching the re
maining men who would otherwise
certainly have perished. He found
them all delirious. Two of the men
were diseovtrred in the branches of
tre«»e barking like dog3. Some of the
marines are so ill that they are not
likely to recover.
Gen. Chaffee has endeavored to ob
tain full details of the trip of the
marines, but Capt. Porter is not yet
able to lcidly explain the matters.
The expinlition into the interior of
Samar led by Capt. Porter, of the corps,
numbered thirty-six men. It had been
absent two weeks The marines had
been provided with rations for only
five daya. On January 21 Capt. Porter
and twenty-six members of his party
reached the coast of the island of
Samar. The other ten were missing

Discoverer of Paine's Celery Compound, to Whom Thousands
Owe Life and Perfect Health.
' Excepting its handful of magnitt- j
cent statesmen and ite military he- j
roes," says the most recent writer ;
upon America, "the people owe more)
to Dartmouth's phy sieian-teacher j
than to any one man.
'Ία every walk of life, among the
highest officeholders at Washington,
η the homes of the bast people in the
large citiep, among t'ie every-day
folks of the country, families in com
fortable circumstances, families that
'live from hand to mouth,' and could
nit, if they wished, afford the services
of any bnt an ordinrry physician —
everywhere I have met people to
whom Paine'e celery compouud bass
been a blowing."
The story of the life-work of this
giant among men has been often told
*nd is familiar to most readers. The
hteenees above is probably the best
portrait of him yet printed.
It was the world· famed discovery
by Prof. Phelpe of an infallible cure
for those fearful ills that result from
un impaired nervous system and im
pure blood which has endeared the
great doctor to the world, and made
his life an era in the practice of
Prof. Phelpe was born in Connecti
cut and graduated in medicine at Yal«. j
H is unusual talent soon brought him
reputation and prominence amené
his professional brethren. First he
was elected to the profes*orshlp ot
anatomy and surgery in the Vermont
University. Next he was oppointed !
lecturer on materia medica aud medi- Î
cai botany in Dartmouth college
The next year he was chosen pro
fessor of the chair then vacated by !
Prof. Robhy, and occupied the chair,
the most important one in the coun- i
try, at the time when he first formu- \
lated hie most remarkable prescrip- ;
In view of the overwhelming testi
mony to the value of Paine's celerv
compound that has recently appeared
from men and women of national
reputation, the picture of Prof.
Phelps ie particularly interesting.
Paine's celery compound makes ;
people well. It is the one true spe
cific recognised and prescribed today
by eminent practitioners for diseases
arising from a debilitated nervous
system. Prof. Phelpe gave toj hie
profession a positiye cure for sleep
lessness, wasting strength, dyspepsia*
billiousness, liver complaint, neural
gia, rheumatism, all nervous diseases
and kidney troubles. For all 6uch
complaints Fame's celery compound
has succeeded again and again where
everything else has failed.
No remedy was ever so highly
ιecommended, because none ever ac
complished so much.
Todav Paine'» celery compound
stands without competition for feed
ing exhausted nerves and building up
the strength of the body. It cure#
radically and permanently. The
nervous prostration and general de
bility from which thousands of
women suffer so long that it finally
gets to be a second nature with them
—all this suffering and despondency
can be very soon removed by prop
erly feeding the nerves, and replacing
the unhealthy blooa by a fresher,
more highly vitalized fluid. A
healthy increase in appetite and a
corresponding gain in we'ght and
good spirits follow the use of Paine'·
Paine's celery compound is the
most remarkable medical achieve
ment of this generation.
