NOW ALL IS PEACE
Where once war frowned on CHAPULTEPEC. Palace of President Diaz Crowns the Heights Stormed by the Ameri can Troops—Golf Links on Cherubusco Field. It Is only by a stretch of the Imagin ation that a person driving through the beautiful park of Chapultepec to day can be brought to believe that the great rocky hill, which rises so majes tically from Its center, was the height that was stormed by the American troops nearly 60 years ago during the Mexican war. The only thing to remind the visitor of the blood that was spilled on this hillside Is a small commemorative monument about 15 feet high, erected in honor of the students of the Mili tary college who fell fighting against what is termed ift Mexico "the North American invasion." The heights of Chapultepec are to day crowned by the palace of Presi dent Diaz. The House" not only commands the City of Mexico but the whole valley known as the federal district. From the bal conies of the palace there is a view of 100 miles. In this magnificent outlook the great feature is Popocatepetl, which, 17,500 feet high, rears Its lofty snow-clad head above the clouds. The Rock of Chapultepec Is a ter raced garden. The spiral walk leading up to the mansion is hidden from the view of anybody standing at the base ^ by a luxuriant growth of flowers of every species, cactus, palms, in fact, by all the flora of subtropical Mexico. Running in all directions from this smiling rock are drives and walks that take one to placid lakes, the homes of milk-white swans and rustic summer houses, where one may, In perfect quietness, dream 'away an hour or two. Mexican White Where the Americans planted their cannon Is the "Avenue of Posts.' early as seven o'clock In the morning students can be seen walking up and down this magnificent alley of pines, studying from a book or engaged In philosophic or artistic controversy. It calls to mind vividly what we have read of the groves of the Academe, in Athens, where Socrates walked and discoursed and argued. Splendid drives lead out from the city in every direction to Chapultepec. Between four and seven o'clock In the afternoon the beauty and fashion oi Mexico turn out on parade, in auto mobile and carriage, quite in the man ner of the Parisian who makes his drive in the Bois as regularly as he performs his ablutions. The return down the brilliant Paseo de la Reforma into San Francisco street is one of the sights of the capi tal. From 2,000 to 3,000 vehicles take part in this daily parade In and out oi Chapultepec. The field of Cherubusco is a golf links and Chapultepec is the peaceful home of a president who lives massed in flowers. Time Is indeed a humor As ist. Mistake of a Self-Made Man. "Yes, he got a little fresh and I told him plainly that I knew my business and added that I was proud of the fact that I am a self-made man." "What did he say to that?" "He said I made a mistake In not advertising for bids." ■ Corrected. "Charley, dear," said young Mrs. Torkins, "you said those losing ball players fielded badly." "That's what I said." "This sporting talk is demoralizing your grammar. You mean they felt badly." Realize This? "The time when two heads are bet ter thap one," remarked the Observer of Events and Things, "Is when there is nothing in one of the heads." Nothing Doing. It was a dull morning in the police court, and the magistrate, a benedict of long standing, sat In his chair look ing into space. A prisoner was brought before him and the policeman made a charge. "Intoxicated, eh?" muttered the court, absent-mindedly. , "Yes, your honor," admitted the prisoner. "Are you married?" asked the mag istrate. "No," was the reply. "Then what excuse do you have?" demanded the court, mechanically sigBtng the commitment paper. A titter ran over the audience and the magistrate came to with a start, glancing apprehensively at the re porters. When court was adjourned, contrary to his usual custom, he called the newspaper men before him. "Do you find anything to write this he asked in a clearly ap i morning? prehensive tone. was the reply. The magistrate looked relieved. "That's good—that is—I—I mean I thought there wasn't anything worth writing," he said. No, BLOATED WITH DROPSY. The Heart Was Badly Affected When the Patient Began Using Doan's Kidney Pills. Mrs. Elizabeth Maxwell, of 415 West Fourth street, Olympia, Wash., says: "For over three years I suffered with a dropsical condition with i; out being aware that it was due |* 5 to kidney trou ble. The early y 8tages were u principally back 9 ache and bear ing down pain, but 1 went along without worrying much until dropsy set in. My feet and ankles swelled up, my hands puffed and became so tense I could hardly close them. I had great difficulty In breathing, and my heart would flutter with the least ex ertion. I could not walk far without stopping again and again to rest. Since using four boxes of Doan's Kidney Pills the bloating has gone down and the feelings of distress have disap peared."

The marquis of Lansdown, leader of unionist peers in the British parlia ment, speaks rarely but always with effect. He revels in grave sarcasm. On one ocaslon Lord Crewe, the lib eral leader, made a speech on a subject which he desired to leave a matter for open voting among his followers. Lori Lansdowne congratulated his friend on his eloquent speech. "I have followed it," he said, "with earn est attention not only on account of the Importance of the subject but also on account of the noble lord's judicial attitude. I admired his earnestness and eloquence, but what impressed me most was his impartiality." A pause. "Yes, until the last minute I did not know on which side of the fence bis lordship was coming down." ALM08T A SOLID SORE. 8k!n Disease from Birth—Fortune Spent on Her Without Benefit Cured Her with Cuticura. **I have a cousin in Rockingham Co. who once had a skin disease from her birth until she wa3 six years of age. Her father had spent a fortune on her to get her cured and none of the treatments did her any good. Old Dr. G- suggested that he try the Cuticura Remedies which he did. When he commenced to use it the child was almost a solid scab. He had used it about two months and the child was well. I was there when they commenced to use your Cuti cura Remedies. I stayed that week and then returned home and stayed two weeks and then went back and stayed with them two weeks longer, and when I went home I could hardly believe she was the same child. Her skin was as soft as a baby's with out a scar on it. I have not seen her in seventeen years, but I have heard from her and the last time I heard from her she was well. Mrs. W. P. Tngle, Bur lington, N. C., June 16, 1905. >» Whine from Henry James. Henry James, pursuing his theme, The Speech of American Women," speaks of a group of Boston young women, "all articulating as from sore mouths, all mumbling and whining and vocally limping and shuffling as It were together." He compares, also to Its great disadvantage, a school where parents pay so much not to have their boys taught to speak as gentlemen, with one "beyond the sea, In which the proviso that the schoolmaster shall speak as a gentleman is so abso lutely vital." - ■ Safe, Sure and Speedy. No external remedy ever yet de vised has so fully and unquestionably met these three prime conditions as successfully as Allcock's Plasters. They are safe because they contain no deleterious drugs and are manu factured upon scientific principles of medicine. They are sure because nothing goes into them except ingre dients which are exactly adapted to the purposes for which a plaster is re quired. They are speedy in their ac tion because their medicinal qualities go right to their work of relieving pain and restoring the natural and healthy performance of the functions of muscles, nerves and skin. Allcock's Plasters are the original and genuine porous plasters and like most meritorious articles have been extensively imitated, therefore always mak e sure and get the genuine.
