SOME POTENT FACTS That the Reader Will do Well to Ponder Over. It was kept a secret for years in a good old Quaker family. The neighbors kne^r all about it, and many a time had reason to be thankful for its existence. Its fame spread and strangers who heard about it wrote for information con cerning it, sometimes tried its vir tues and sometimes put off a trial for a more convenient time. To tell how it was brought from an ob-. scure country village and placed before the general public would be interesting reading, but lack of space compels us to withhold the particulars. | It is sufficient to know that over a year ago its fame had spread to every city and town on the earth, unpretentious and unassuming. It said: "I can do certain things; in vestigate my claims; try me if you have backache or kidney ache, and you will not be disappointed." The above is a statement from the history of Doan's Kidney ! Pills, a preparation which came to Sistersville as well as Martin's Ferry to stav. One of Martins Ferry's representative citizens who helped to push the work along is Mr. A. T. Deusmore. That gentleman says: Mr. A. P. Dinsraore, General Grocer, Cor. Main street and Lin coln Ave., says: "I have been troubled lor a long time with my kidneys, but the last year has been much worse, and at times it was positively painful for me to get arcund and do my everyday work in the shop. I had a constant dull aching pain across my loins, that felt as though I had been pounded all over. There was also a heavy bearing down pain through the bladder. I did not rest well at night and in the morning when I would get up, I felt tired and lan guid, even more so when I went to bed. I had tried different remedies without success, until I got a box of Doan's Kidney Pills at a drug store in Bridgeport. They helped me right away, and in a very short time all the trouble disappeard, and I have not had it since. My wife used Doan's Kidney Pills also, being troubled almost as much as I was, and she obtained the same result. Perfect relief and exempt from pain. I can honestly recom mend Doan's Kidney Pills as the best Kidney remedy I ever met with." Just suc^ emnbatic endorsements can be had right here in towu. Drop into the drug store of C. H.

The fol lowing message from the President was sent to Congress at noon: To the Congress oi the United States: On the 24th of April I directed the secretary of the navy to tele graph orders to Commodore George Dewey, of the United States navy, commanding the Asi atic squadron then lying in the port of Hong Kong, to proceed forthwith to the Philippine islands, there to commence operations and engage the assembled Spanish fleet. Promptly obeying that order, the United States squadron, consisting of the flagship Olympia, Baltimore, Raleigh, Boston, Concord and Petrel, with the revenue cutter Mc Colloch as an auxiliary dispatch boat entered the harbor of Man ila at daybreak on the first of May and immediately engaged the entire Spanish fleet of eleven ships, which were under the protection of the fire of the land forts. After a stubborn fight, in which the enemy suffered great loss, their vessels were destroyed or com pletely disabled and the water bat tery at Cavite silenced. Of our brave officers and men not one was lost and only eight injured, and those slightly. All of our ships es caped any serious damage. By the fourth of May Commodore Dewey had taken possession of the naval station at Cavite, destroying the fortifications there and at the en trance to the bay and patrolling their garrisons. The waters of the bay are under his complete control. He has established hospitals within the American lines, where two hun dred and fifty of the Spanish sick and funded nre assisted and pro ' tectcd. The magn: ide of this victory can hardly b?.- measured by the or dinary stands; I of naval warfare. Outweighing my material advan tage is the m ral effect of this ini tial success. At this unsurpassed achievement I'te great heart of our nation throbs, not with boasting or with greed of co-nuest, but with deep gratitude tliai this triumph has come :a a just cause, and that, bv the grace of God, an effective has been taken to ward the aadinment of the wished OCR THANKS.

To those whose skill, courage and devotion have won the fight ? to the gallant commander and the brave officers and men who aided him ? our country owes an in calculable debt Feeling as our people feel and speaking in their name, I at once sent a message to Commodore Dewey, thanking him and his of ficers and men for their splendid achievement aud overwhelming victory, and informing him that I had appointed him an acting rear admiral. I now recommend that, follow ing out national precedents and ex pressing the fervent gratitude of every patriotic heart, the thanks Congress be given Acting Real Ad miral George Dewey, of the United States navy, for highly distinguished conduct in conflict with the enemy and to the officers aud men under his command for their gallantry in the destruction of the enemy's fltet and the capture of the enemy's fortifications in the bay of Manila.
