Words of Hops for
PAINE'S
Celery Compound.
The Marvelous Banisher of Disease
Has Reconn the Popnlar
Family Medicine.
Dovised by an Eminent Physician
and Generally Prescribed by
The Profession.
Professor Edward E. Phelps, \I.
D., L L. I)., according to the ethics
of honest and reputable physicians,
gave to the leading medical men of
the world Ids wonderful prescription
Paine's Celery Compound as soon as
it was perfected. For this reason
Paine's Celery Compound has never
been included among patent medi
cines. Coming from so high a source,
and being so thoroughly tested and
so strongly recommended, physicians
prescribe it with confidence.
Paine's Celery Compound rapidly
gains in fame as a disease banisher;
all who have tried it gratefully
acknowledge its curing and life giving
power. Jt drives the poison germs
of deep seated diseases from the
blood; it brings buoyancy of spirit
In place of lassitude and despondency;
it enables the overtaxed and broken
down imtem to start fairly on the
mad to health; it gives the sweet
sleep so necessary to brain and
nerves. It strengthens, invigorates,
and gives tone lo the system, makes
pure blood, is food and nourishment
for nerves and tissue, it makes sick
people well.
Mr. John 13. Drydcn, Editor of the
"Frankfort Call, '' Frankfort, Ky.,
writes us follows:—
"It gives me great pleasure to
state to you, and to any suffering
human being, that in my judgment
there are thousands upon thousands
in this broad land of ours who are to
day suffering, who might enjoy all
the blessings of health if they wou'd
but use your great medicine, Paine's
Celery Compound.
"For the cure of dyspepsia it has
no superior, and that dread disease,
insomnia, will soon be a thing of the
past if people who are thus afflicted
will use this medicine.
"I have used the Compound in my
family and always with beneficial
results. As a family medicine 1 do
not think it possible to find its super
ior. To those who are worn out in
body, it will speedily bring them
back to health and make them feel
that life is worth living again. To
all poor, suffering, human creatures,
we say 'use Paine's Celery Compound
if you want lobe made well.' "

people, accustomed to rumblings of the
earth, paid no heed. Instead of fleeing

(Feb. 12 or 13) there was an ominous
growling, and the earth bulged up sud

thrown headlong in the streets, and
when they rose they were thrown down
again. Asphyxiating vapors exuded

I'op to IK re Bill I'ussrd.
WASHINGTON, March 15.-Tlie sen
ate spent an hour in executive session
yesterday on the convention growiug
out of The Hague peace conference re
lating lo the conduct of war on land
and sea and finally ratified the agree
ment without u division. The discus
sion turned entirely on the conduct of
the war in the Philippines and related
especially to General Funston's rap
ture of Aguinaido. Senator Teller in
quired whether If this treaty had been
in force at the time the method of
AguinaIdo's capture could have been
justified, lie quoted Hie provision in
the treaty relating to the conduct of
spies and said lie did not mean himself
to say that General Fnnston's course
would not have been regular, but mere
ly to secure the opinion of senators
who lmd given attention to the treaty
and who also were familiar with tin*
details of Aguiimldo's capture. Senator
Burton replied to the inquiry, speaking
especially for General Funston, and
said he was sure the proceeding on the
general's part, had been not only im
mune, but that it bad been iu accord
ance with tin* rules of civilized war
fare. it was true, he said, that General
Funston and his force had acted some
what in the <-a pa oily o!' spies, but wbut
they liad done had beeu in the line of
bonorabie warfare.
Senator Hour also spoke at some
lcnglh regarding this provision in the
treaty.
The countries party lo the treaty are
Germany. Austria. Belgium. Denmark,
Spain, the United States. France. Great
Britain. Greece, Italy, Japan. Luxem
burg, Montenegro. Netherlands, Persia,
Portugal, Uouumniu, Russia, Bervia,
Sweden and Norway, Turkey anti Bul
garia. The provisions of the treaty arc
binding only on the contracting powers
in ease of war between two or more of
them and cease to be binding when a
noncontracting power joins cither of
the belligerents.
Throughout the session of the senate
as under consid
as discussed
by Mi. Poraker <0.i. Mr. McLuurin
(Miss.) and Mr. Harris iKan.i.
The house passed the postotiice ap
propriation bill. The only amendment
of importance was one to incorporate

MYSTERIOUSLY
MURDERED.
A
New Torlc, March 11.—Maud
Gentile, the young wife of John
Gentile, a bar-tender, was found
murdered this morning in Gold
stein's Hotel at 157 East Forty
Second street. She was lying on
the floor of a room on the second
floor with a bullet wound in her
mouth. A man who had gone to
the room with her last night and
who had beon hea d to threaten
her had disappeared before the
woman's body was found.
This man was known as Eu
geno Gautier and Fl ank Gunter.
He was a Fron ch-Cuuadiau from
Montreal and ho was employed as
clerk by a firm of cheap clothing
dealers on Third avenue,
met Maud Gentile a few mouths
ago and becumo infatuated with
her. She went about with him a
good deal and often visited him
at the hotel in which she was
Ho
found iloail and where Gautier
lived.
The clothing clerk soon got
jealous of her in spite of the fact
that she wtm the wife of another
man before lie met her and he was
often heard to threaten her. Fast
night when they wore drinking
iu the hack room of the saloon
on the ground floor of the hotel
Gautier in the presence of a num
ber of witnesses said iu reply to
some complaint from the young
woman in regard to his faithless
ness that lie was just as fond of
her as he had ever been hut that
he would "finish her and then
finish himself." Shortly afterward
the two went up-stairs.
This morning there was no
sign of life from room 4, and tho
chambermaid opened the door
with a
.'Maud Gentile dead on the floor
with clotted blood about her
mouth. Her clothes were all ou
with the exception of her waist
and she had apparently been dead
for some time. There were no
weapons iu the room. Gautier
was gone.
A porter, Julius David, saw the
two persons outer the room at
about 10 o'clock last nigkt. At 1
o'clock tiie outside doors of tho
hotel were locked for the night.
It is supposed, therefore, that
Gautier mi st hnvo disappeared
some time between 10 and l o'clock
SI to l'onnd
pass-key.
No one in the hotel saw hint go
out, and no one hoard a pistol
shot. Guiltier lias several times
pulled out of his pocket a small
pistol which he threatened some
day lo use and tho police say
that tho pistol could be fired
without being heard outside of
the room unless someone were
listening.
Gautier is described as
old, of medium heieht,
i!4
years
smooth face, black hair, and as
weighing about 150 pounds. Maud
Gentile, tho police say, comes
from Ottawa, III. The police are
satisfied that she was murdered.

DEMOCRATIC
CITY COMMITTEE
The Democratic Cite Committee
met last night at the Young Men 's
Democrat C.ub fur the purpose of
considering important changes to
the rules, especially those govern
ing the lormution ot the committee
itself.
At present the city committee is
composed of twelve members, one
from each ward. The ward elects
a chairman, and this chairman
the member of the committee from
the ward. The committee elects its
own chairman, recretary and treas
urer, Iu previous campaigns there
has been a claim that the committee
was too small for effective work.
It was asserted that more work
ers were needed, and that, it was
not right that one man should have
the charges of an entire ward.
Under the new plan there will be
sixty-five members of the Democrat
ic City Committee, one for each elec
tion district in the city. This w : ll
give each district a say in the com
mittee, and will also give each ward
representation according to popula
tion on the committee.
Each man will be made respon
sible for his own district, and he
will have much less to look after
than the members of the present
committee. In order to have a
small and compact body for doing
the active inside work of the cam
paign, it was deemed best to have j
an executive condition to the com
mittee of sixty-five members.
This new committee would be
composed of only five members
and from tins the chair
IS
t
man. secretary, treasurer and fi
nance committee will be chosen. It
is pointed out that it would not be
necessary to have the entire coin
mil tee* to do the headquarter's work. |
The committee last night discuss
ed the plan but no form a 1 action
was taken.
i
There was a free discussion, and
most of the members appeared to
be in favor of some plan by which
better work could be done. Of
course there is some objection urged
lo the new plan, and it is claimed
bv some that the committee would
be too large.
