are positive proof of the matchless merit
of this grand remedy for curing all

ADDS TO THE CRIME OF HER HISTORY.
The telegraph'^announces that the
Ministry of Great Britain has determin
ed to imprison—we repeat, to imprison
Cronje, the Boer General, on the island
of St. Helena. This act, if done, will
begrime history. It will make a page
blacker than Arctic night. Civilization
the world over should rise in protest.
Humanity should shrowd it
sell in sack
cloth, and every child competent to
comprehension in the United States
should redden from quick to surface at
the indirect share wbich attaches itself
to this country from «he perpetration of
this outnure by the false position in
which the Administration of William
McKinley has placed us. "Cronje st

ences have wasted time. They are mere
ickeries, convened to utter meaning
less phrases and to exhibit hypocritical
prbtensions. "Cronje Imprisoned on
S Helena." The monstrous incident
by which England links infamy to an
eternal page was the confinement fo'the
great Napoleon on the island of St. Hel
ena-. She pleads the peace of mankind
for that act. No such reason can be of
fered for the indignity offered Cronje.
Pure selfishness—arrant cowardice—
every ignoble sentiment which crime
suggests and fear adopts is the reason
for the transportation of Croipje in a
military prison. The semi-penal ban
ishment of Napoleon ended in a pitiful
apology to a justly offended nation.
His ashes were returned to his people.
The wound which it made has never
healed. The banishment of Cronje
ought to put the hearts of the French
pieople into flame. The act, no doubt,
is a reminder to the present generation
of French people that England still
owns.St. Helena, and that she still has
prisons for illustrious Frenchmen. It is
a taunt to the French people. Will it
be resented? Or will the taunt remain
unnoticed? And the Boers—yes, the
Boers—what eflect will this outrage have
on them? Will Kruger and Joubert be

Will the Congress of the United States
wink at this infamous performance?
Will the knee-bending, truckling of
William McKinley and his supporters
in Congress furnish a calf with which
public indignation can be appeased and
the spirit of cordiality continued be
tween the great English-speaking peo
ple?" Into what depths of shame can
the Republican managers drag the Re
public of the United States of America?

"J' story or a stive.
To be bound hand and foot for years
by the chains of disease is the worst
form of slavery, George D. Williams,
of Manchester, Mich., tells how such a
slave was made free. He says: "My
wife has been so helpless for five years
she could not turn over in bed alone.
After using two bottles of Electric
Bitters, she is wonderfully improved
and'able to do her own work." This
supreme remedy for female diseases
quickly cures nervousness, sleeplessness,
melancholy, headache, backache, faint
ing and dizzy spells. This miracle
working medicine is a godsend to weak,
sickly, run down people. Every bottle
guaranteed. Only 50 cents. Sold by
