While work is progress ing with all due rapidity and zaal, the old and approved plan of reliev ing biliousness and constipation through the beneficent agency of Hostettors Stomach Bitters finds general reconition. This excellent family medicine is a safeguard a gainst malaria and rheumatism, and removes indigestion and nervous ness. It invigorates t.e system through the medium of improved digestion and appetite, fortifies it against disease, and counteracts the effect of overwork, mental or phy sical. A wineglassfull before retir engenders health yielding and strength-giving sleep. . Lst it have the persistant systematic trial that it deserves. A voung lady lriend asks, "How can I* tell an editor when I see him?" Why, bless your sweet sparkling eyes, it is the easiest thing in the world. You can tell him by his august air, by the per fect fit 01 his clothing, by his ele gance of bis manner, and by his profound silence when surrounded by the common herd of promiscu ous society. You may recognize him by the way he spends his money, scattering his greenbacks as lavishly as shavings from a planing machine and he generally drives some team to a park and makes things hum. He is decked in profusion with the most expen sive jewelry and sports a gold headed cane with a rose solataire in thectnter. He seldom invests in marriage circles and is as modest as a school girl. But the chief point is, he always speaks the truth and nothing but the truth. Follow these directions and you can not make a mistake. ? Caroline Pythias.

A Terrible March for Sick Men-Col Hard Farlonf* ?t the Stupidity of the Quartermaster Who Chose the Wmt Shore? The Troop* From Puerto Rico. Camp Wikoff, Montauk, Sept. 6. ? The Eight Ohio Regiment got away from camp today in wretched shape. Someone blundered in ar ranging for its transportation. There was more than eight hour's delay in its leaving after it had ar rived at the railroad station, and in consequence there were two coach loads of sick ? 261 men. More than half of the regiment reached the station soon after 6 a. m , at that time ready for traveling according to their surgeons, else they would not have been allowed to go. Many were weak and some were really ill, but the thought of home buoyed them up and they felt equal to the trip. The sun was hot and the march was nearly two miles. Many men fell out, and for hours the stragglers were plodding along in the dust raised by an end less procession of mule teams and scores of vehicles. Colonel Hard received a dispatch from Quartermaster Kimball at New York notifying him of the route of the regiment. COLONEL HARD GETS WRATH Y*. To his astonishment and disgust it informed bim that the men would go over the West Shore road from New York. He had asked partic ularly that the transportation should be via the Pennsylvania and the Erie, so that the soldiers could go direct to their homes. To send them via the West Shore would land them at Columbus, and to get them from there to their homes would mean not only several changes of cann but a long delay io getting transportation orders from Washington. Colonel Hard was beside himself, and was still lurther angered when the Long Island Railroad company informed him that the quartermas ter had not provided transportation from Long Island City by water around to the West Shore station at Weehauken. To march the men across the city to the ferry was out of the question, as too many ot them were weak and ill. Colonel Hard telegraphed Quar termaster Kimball and waited. He said he would not take his men to Long Island City landing them there after a tedious and dusty ride, and then wait at the Long Island railroad terminal for transportation by water. They could better wait here, he thought. WIRES) work: only one way. No answer came and anothe more urgent dispatch was sent. There was no answer to this, and four more were sent. Still there was no reply. Then General Wheel er was appealed 10. He, too, sent six dispatches, but there was not a sign from the Quartermaster. Meanwhile the weak and weary soldiers were falling down about the station and lay upon the ground. Many were able to sit up, but it was plain to see that they were on the verge of collapse. Everything possible was done lor them, but the heat and dust were overwhelming, and it was feared they would have to be taken to the hospital. Finally, no word coming, it was decided to get away and trust that arrangements would be perfected by the time they arrived at Long Island City. The first section left soon after 2 and the other section a few minutes after 3. The sick were put into coaches and filled them to overflowing. "It is a dastardly outrage," said Colonel Hard. "When the Presi dent and Secretary Alger were here I asked them that the regiment be sent home immediately, as many of the men were ill, and there was no reason why we should remain longer. COL. HARD SAYS IT'S AN OUTRAGE. "Secretary Alger at once made ab order for us to leave this morn ing and wired for transportation via the Pennsylvania and the Erie. You know what has happened. It Tuffs Pills Cure All * v Liver Ills. t ARE YOU* BANKRUPT;,, health, constitution undermined by ex travagance in eating, by disre garding the laws of nature, or physical capital all gone, if so, NEVER DESPAIR Tutt's Liver Pills will cure you. For sick headache, dyspepsia, sour stomach, malaria, torpii liver, constipation, biliousness and all kindred diseases. Tutt's Liver Pills an absolute cure. is an outrage on the part of the Quartermaster's Department." According to advice from New York tbe regiment reached Long Island City in two sections, one ar riving: at 9:15 and the other at 10 o'clock this evening. They looked as did the other troops that have come back frcm Cuba ? ragged, dirty, bearded, yellow and sick. Half of them staggered under the weight of their blankets and guns. The sick stumbled along when they left the trains, using the last ounce of strength in their enfeebled frames to reach the ferryboat that was to carry them to the West Shore train; but some of them could not walk and these were car riedtin invalid chairs and on stretch ers. Some will rnver reach Ohio again. The doctors said that two men are doomed to die before morn ing. Those that looked upon Wal ter Hubbell saw that at a glance, and Wm. McKeehan was little bet ter off. Both are youtig. Both be long to company A.and their home 'is in Bucyrus, O. Li;ilOG C IIAX; UISMIMSED From Power Owing to Hi* Pronnuncf ?t Partiality Toward* Pekin, Sept. 7. ? Li Hun^ Chang has been dismissed from power. It is presumed this was done in ac cordance with the demand which it was rumored the British minister here, Sir Claude M. MacDonald, was instructed to make on account of the alleged general partiality of the great Cninaman to Russia, cul minating in Great Brita.n being de prived of the contract for the Pekin Hankow railroad by giving the Russo-Chinese bank financial con trol of the road. DEWEY EXONERATE* REBELS. He Report* Thai He 1m Enable to Find Any Proof or AcIm oi" Cruelty Toward Span In It Prisoner*. Washington, Sept. 6. ? Admiral Dewey was recently called upon to investigate reports that the Span ish prisoners taken by the ingur gents in the Philippines were sub jected to cruel treatment. A cable message was received ifrom Admiral Dewey today, saying | that the story probably originated from the fact that insurgents were unable to meet the wants of the sick Spanish prisoners owing to a lack of physicians and medical sup plies. He said he had been unable to find any proof of acts of ciuelty on the part of the iusurgents. DEWEY READY FOR ANY W4HL His Sqnadron, With IU Reinforce ment* .of "American Ironclad* and Captured Spanish Gnnboat*. is Wet ting lu Shape. Washington, Sept 6. ? A report from Constructor Capps. at Manila, just received here, states that aside from the small gunboats which have been raised and put into the service of Admiral Dewey, none of the Spanish ships of war engaged in the battle of Manila Bay are likely to be raised. Mr. Capps was sent to the Asi atic station especially to assist in putting the squadron in first class condition for any emergency. Al ready the flagship Olympia and the gunboat Raleigh have been docked and cleaned at Hong Kong, and the Boston arrived here last Satur day for the same purpose. Within the course of a few weeks at the outside ^dmiral Dewey's squadron will have been thoroughly renovated, and reinforced as it has ' been by the Monterey and Monad nock, and with other ironclads within easy reach, the admiral will be in shape to meet any one who may threaten to disturb his posses sion of Manila. | Well record books can be bad U J the Review office. t&
