For many months the Costa Ri can counterfeiters have been issu ing bogus notes of the government of the island until the amount, it is said, has reached $1,000,000. In spectors of the secret service bureau weie chiefly instrumental in bring ing the malefactors to justice. The efficiency of the secret service is undoubted, but it is by no means a secret, but a patent tact, that the service that Hostetter's Stomach Bitters does the weak, nervous and dyspeptic is of genuine value. There have been trom time to time coun terfeits of it, as there are of the gen uine Costr Rican notes, but the miniature note of hand on the label and the vignette of St. George and the Dragon, coupled with the ex quisitely finished tyoographical work, are not successfully imitable. An}'one who has used the bitters knows its admirable qualities and the features of the exterior of the bottles. This agreeable tonic ab solutely prevents and remedies ma laria, rheumatism, liver conrplaint, kidney trouble and dyspepsia.

I did not think that any medicine would help him, but after giving him a few doses of that remedy :I noticed an improvement, and one bottle cured him entirely. It is the best, cough medicine I ever had in the house. ? J. !L. Moore, South Burgettstown, Pa. For sate by C. W. Grier. Representative Cousins of Iowa, ivhu charmed the house recently with his eloquent tribute to the viotims of the battleship Maine, has made only one set speech before this during his five years' servine.in the house. That effort was at the time the house proposed to censure Embassador Bayard for certain utterances in fcngland and was hardly a less notable ooe. Then he spoke for nearly an hour, unci, as the other day, held the closest attention of both sides of the chamber. There is a peculiar power in his clear, musical voice that enables him to be heard without speak ing at a high pitch. Yesterday one could have almost heard a pin drop while he was speaking. The compliments he received were most flattering, for they came from both Democrats and Republicans. Represent ative Aldrich of Alabama as he grasped Mr. Cousins by the hand said with much feeling, "It was a word picture worthy of Bob Ingersoll or any other of his class." Representative Fitzpa trick, the stalwart Democrat of Kentucky, took a j seat close to the Iowanon the Republic- 1 an side. He was at the close of the speech one of the first to give Mr. Coos ins a hearty congratulation. ? ??> ??

Revenue Cutter McCullough ? Captain D B Hodgdon. "For five weeks I lived on water, so to speak," writes a man who suf fered terribly from indigestion. He could hardly keep anything on his stomach. What stayed was not properly digested and gave him terrible pangs. This is not an un common case. Dyspeptics don't get enough nourishment. They ? are generally thin and weak. They may eat enough but they don't digest enough. Much of what they eat turns into poison. It this keeps on there's no telling what dis ease they may get next. That's why it is best to take Shaker Digestive Cordial as soon as symptoms of indigestion appear. It cures all the evils of indiges tion and prevents the evils which indigestion cause.?.
