States Commission to the Philip

Much of his argument deals with
the missionary question, and in this
regard lie makes some pertinent
statements. The persons who go to
the Philippines in this capacity, he
Bay s, must realize that they are con
tending with a Catholiii-educated
population that knows nothing about
the line differences between Protest
ant sects and denominations. "There
fore, it would be highly impolitic to
send missionaries of different denom
inations to confuse the minds of the
people. I do hope that when we send
the missionaries we will decide before
hand on one form of Protestant
Christianity. Send only one type of
missionaries. The Filipinos will then
have Catholic Christianity and Pro
testant Christianity presented to
them, so they can take their choice."
Continuing on the same line, Mr.
Schurman says: "The priests have
ruled in Luzon so long that their in
fluence la widespread, and the natives
know of no other form of Christian
ity. The Roman Catholic Church has
iMTSnestablished there for 300 years,
and the archipelago was really
governed by the priests, and not by
the Spanish civil or military com
manders. Of the $13,500,000 raised on
the island annually, about $1,500,000
was used for the church's support.
Wemust credit the church with hav
ing done a great deal of good work
among the natives. We must reckon
with these facts when we send mis
sionaries to the Philippines. We owe
it to the Filipinos to give them the
best in our religion as well as in our
Mr. Schurman believes that the
fighting in the Philippines is nearly
over. He declares that only by actual
-works and ocular demonstration will
the Filipinos be induced to rely upon
the word of the Americans. "Conse
quently, I have urged it upon Con
gress and the President to set up civil
government in the Philippines just
as soon as the military condition war
rants it. A simple government is
-what is needed, and every province
should have it so they can learn the
meaning of our promises and inten
tlons. The President is in possession
of the fullest information about the
needs and condition of the islands,
and he can judge better than we can
nvhat is the best thing to do.
'I regret that the Americans al
lowed the Baloon to get a foothold on
the islands. That has hurt the Ameri
cans more than anything else.and the
spectacle of Americans drunk awak
ens disgust in the Filipinos. We sup
pressed the cock fight there and per
mitted the taverns to flourish. One
emphasized the Filipino frailty and
the other the American yice. I have
never seen a Filipino drunkard."
In conclusion, Mr. Sehurmandwells
upon the great need of an honest
civil service in the islands.

BROUGHT BACK FROM TUB CRAVE.
Last November Mr. Joseph James,
oainter, of 325 V. Pearl St., Indianapo
lis, Ind., was at death's door with quick
consumption. Wasted to a skeleton;
his lungs a mass of ulceration; his
death was hourly awaited by his doctor
and family. He was kept in a constant
stupor with opium. A friend, thinkiug
to relieve his terrible cough, gave him a
bottle of Brazilian Balm. Seeing its
wonderful effect, the doctor advised ite
continued use. Mr. James soon after
dismissed his doctor, and depended
on the Balm alone; His recovery was
rapid uiul complete, and in February he
returned to work. His lungs are sound,
and lm weight greater than at any time
in his life. His recovery i3 regarded as
almost a miracle.
In consumption beware of cough mix
tures and prescriptions that contain
opium. Opium paralizes the nerves,
and gives the comma bacillus a good
chance to destroy the lungs. It is
always fatal. Brazilian Balm does not
contain n trace of any opiate, but stimu
lates the nerves with new life and power,
destroys the microbe, and restores all
that is left of the diseased lungs to a
sound and healthy state which no other
remedy has ever been known to accom
plish. Shenandoah Drug Store, Wholesale Agents
