Louisiana State Normal. The school is cortainly accom plishing its mission. That their work is being well received is ev idenced by the fact that President Caldwell has constaut and urgent calls from all over the state for more teachers than he can possi bly supply. All the available teachers were engaged some weeks ago and many more are wanted for the schools of the state. It is true that some parishes are not offering fancy salaries, but they want nor mal teachers at the salaries they do offer and that indicates quite an advance over the conditions ofj several years past. There was n time and not very far in the past when uorinal teachers were not wanted at any price. We feel sure that within the next five or ten years the demand will be for nothing bnt normal teachers.— Normal Ecslior. |0| ^ To the i'ublir. Allow me to H«y u few word«in pritiso of Chamberlain's Oouffh Remedy. I Imd a very severe cough and cold and feared I would get pneumonia, but after taking the second dose of thia medicine I felt better, three bottles of it cured my cold and the pains in my chest disappeared ontirely. I am most respectfully yours for health, Ralph S. Meyers, 04 Thirty-seventh St., Wheeling, W. Va. For sale by James A. Lee. druggist. Letter froa Philippine islands to President Caldwell. Dear Mr. Caldwell I landed in Manila August 23rd, and remained there two weeks be fore my post of duty was assigned, Manila is a very interesting old city, so I enjoyed my stay there very much. My voyage across the ocean was very pleasant, indeed. I am located about 120 miles north of Manila. This is a beau tiful country aud I feel sure that is healthful. There is a fine range of mountains with an altitude of 5000 feet thirty miles east of here All kinds of tropical fruits grow spontaneously here. I have a large room all to myself and it is made of mahogany. Some of the planks are three feet wide and were sawed by haud. Did you ever think that you would hear of rae living in a room made and fur nished with mahogauyf This is the finest country on the globe. There are 148 soldiers quartered at this place. I am boarding with the Captain and Lieutenant, and they set as fine a table as I have ever seen. My board is twenty dollars a month. 1 entered a school of two teach era and seventy-six pupils last Mon day morning was a week,and neither the teachers nor the pupils could apeak one word of English. Guess yon can imagine yourself in ray place. The teacher, principal, was sitting in a chair with a book in his left hand and a whip in the other, and part of the time the whip was drawn. I had to commence with the elementary principies of object teaching. I have charge of seven schools that have an enrollment of nearly 500. There are three here in the bneblo and there are four in the surrounding barrios not more than a mile from here. I teach an hour or so in one school, mount my wheel and in a few minutes 1 am teaching in another. While I teach the native teachers observe. The pnpils and teachers are very kind to me, indeed, and it seems as thongh they catTc do enough for me. Do not understand me to be boasting as I »m the means, but the effects of the Louisiana State Normal are being felt across the ocean. The whips are thrown away and the pnpils think there is no person in all the world as good as the American teacher. The schools open at 7 a. m. ; dismiss at 10 ; open at 3 p. m. and close at 5. All the teachers assemble in the pueblo at 10:30 a. m. and I teach them one honr. I believe that I am doing my best work through the native teachers. They are very eager to learn English, and they teaeh the pupils all the English they learu The Fhilippino boys and girls are shrewd. I am enjoying my work ; my health is good. Best wishes for the success of the Normal. Yonrs, most sincerelv, S. A. M iller. Resales, Nneva Ecija Province, Philippine Islands, Sept. 29,1901.

London, Nov. 7.—Edward Oan isius, an American, who recently retired from the employ of the Congo Free State, confirms the terrible stories told about the con dition of the natives, and especially in the portions termed the state domain, where strangers are sel dom admitted. Canisius, who accompanied Major Lathaire, com mander of the Belgian troops,in the Congo, on his eaalier expedition after rubber, says 900 natives were killed in six weeks during that expedition, while a smaller expedi tion, commanded by a Belgian lieutenant, killed 300 natives in three weeks. The district is prac tically under martial law on the strength of which such endless barbarities are committed that the natives are absolutely terror-strick en. Canisius further declares that the so-called punitive expeditions are in reality rubber-squeezing raids, couducted with snch iniqui tous methods that the natives are in a constant state of revolt. While the conditions are somewhat im proved in the territories worked by in of the concession companies, the lot of the natives in the state domain Canisius declares, is far worse thau before the advent of the whites The natives are practically forced to work rubber at the muzzles of rifles, receiving 2 cents per pound for what is sold for 75 cents Antwerp. Thousands of natives have fled to the bush and live like wild animals. Along the jungle paths the dead bodies of those who have died of starvation are frequent sights. A Phytiriun Textilien. I have taken Kodol Dyspepsia Cute and have never used anything in my life that did me the good that did," says County Physician Ceo. \V. Scroggs of Hall Coonty, Ga. "Being n physician I have prescribed it and found it to give the best results." If tbe food you eat remains un digested in your stomach it decays there and poisons tbe system. You can prevent this by dieting but that moans starvation. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure digest: what you •at. Yon need suffer from neither dyspe psia nor starvation. The worst cases quickly eured.

A flock of ducks belonging to Simon Geisel wandered in front of a hotel in Hooversdale, Pa., Thurs day, and a practical joker enticed them inside the barroom by scatter ing crumbled bretzels soaked in brandy. In ten minutes half the flock was moving about unsteadily, says the Philadelphia North Ameri can. Ten minutes later there was a free-for-all fight, in which wings and bills were used unmercifully. Finally a big drake rolled over upon his back and turned his web feet toward tbe ceiling and died. Soon oonple of lady duck followed him to the bright shores of the big duck pond. Then it began to dawn upon the jokers that perhaps their prank would turn out to be costly. Bromo seltser aud other easers known to aud other easers known to the profession were procured, but the drunken ducks refused to return to sobriety. It was decided that fresh air was what the ducks need ed, and the remnants of the flock were hustled out of the place. Two more of them died on their way home. When Mr. Ueisel learned of the affair be handed iu a bill at tbe rate of a dollar per dead dnck, and (he claim was paid without dispute.

The following its an extinct from an address delivered l»y William Lloyd Garrison as presiding officer of the meeting Leid November 10, in Mechanics' hall, Boston, under the auspices of the United Irish league, to welcome the Irish envoys, .lohn P. Redmond, P. A. Mellngh and Thomas O'Donnell: "Our friends will find many sym pathizers in the United States on the burning land question, which in every country, as well as in Ire land, lies at the base of tyranny. Where land is not free, men canuot be free. No political changes, which allow the landlord to absorb with out return the earnings of labor can be of lasting good. Ireland for the Irish ! Yes. The l ight of self government upon God's acres? Yes. The abolition of alien ownership of land? Yes. But in that struggle hide not the truth that landlordism is the same evil thing whether the power be vested in Knglisli or Irish ! hands Landlordism is the heart of privilege. So far it has proved ja citadel surviving every batUe, and leaving the most ruthless foes of ; freedom undislodged. Keep iu the forefront the only legend i under which victory can be as S su red. "The land belongs equally I to all the people of a nation, to whom its use can and must be ! equitably assured " With this free ; expression of my own view, for which alone I am responsible, and bespeaking the same untrammeled speech for the distinguished gentle men who are to address you, I wel come with cordial sympathy this delegation from an oppressed and loug-suffering people. May their appeal for substantial aid find ready response, aud may Americans ever remember that in helping the down trodden of other countries they, in like measure, help to uplift and save their owu land."
