W nshiugton Dec. 3.—Counsel for i the government have presentee j the Spanish treaty claims eomissinn I a brief in support of the motion to dismiss the claims growing out of the sinking of the battleship Maine. It is contended that it was the in tention of the treaty of peace not to provide for, but to relinquish and leave in oblivion as settled in the tribunal of war the destruction of the Maine. The brief says that, the destruc tion of Spanish lives and tin loss of Spanish possessions atoned fin ally settled and supposed responsi bility of Spain for the destruction of that national ship, with its of ficers and crew, and that Congress has passed an act for the relief of the Maine sufferers. Saw Death Near. "It often made my heart ache," writes L. C. Overstreet, of Elgin, Tenn., "to hear my wife cough until it seemed her weak and sore lungs would collapse. Good doctors said she was so far gone with Consump tion that no medicine or earthly help could save lier, but a friend recommended Dr. King's New Dis covery and persistent use of this excellent medicine saved her life."

Political jobbery and traffic in public office is not new in the United States, nor have there been wanting disgraceful exhibitions of party piracy, says tho Buffalo Times. But such an ordering of public affairs by a veritable politi cal banditti as now controls the State of Pennsylvania has seldom, if ever, been seen in the American Commonwealth. Were it not for the accomplished facts it would be incredible that auy self-snporting people could tolerate beyond a popular election such state of af fairs.

The United States court of ap peals, sitting at St. Louis, decided on the 25th that marriage is iu law a civil contract, requiring no cere mony to make it binding, and exists when a man and a woman agree to be husband and wife and follow the agreement by "consistent and noto rious cohabitation." j HOME Aim CHILD Does your horse "feel his oats"? What a difference be tween the grain-fed and the grass-fed horse ! The first strong and full of ginger, the second flabby, weak and tired out before he begins. The feeding makes the difference. Children are not alike either. One is rosy, bright-eyed, full of life and laughter, another is paK', weak and dull. The feed ing again is responsible. Sickly children need special feeding. They don't "feel their oats". Scott's Emulsion adds just the right richness to their diet. It is like grain to the horse. The child gets new appetite and strong digestion. Scott's Emulsion is more than food. It is a strong medicine. It rouses up dull children, puts new flesh on thin ones and red blood into pale ones. It makes children grow. Scott's Emulsion makes ordi nary food do its duty. This picture represents the Trade Mark of Scott 's Emulsion and is on the wrapper of every bottle. Umi fsr free ssmplc.

Roselie Herbert of Orand Lake had coiuo to town during tho day, and was at tho merry-go-round tent on Ryan street, when the storm came up. Together with Charlie Carlisle, the merry-go-round's en gineer, Mr. Herbert, sought pro tection from the storm at tho front door of the Lake Charles Carriago and Implement Company, just a cross the streot. As they were standing near the front door of the Implement Company's store a live wire dropped from the pole at that corner and hit Mr. Herbert. He fell and the wire camo in contact with his left leg just below the kneo. It burned into the flesh, aud intothe bone, causing instant death. Of the property damage that suf fered by tho Swift-Kirkwood Com pany was the heaviest. A cab drawn by two fine horses was going at a rapid speed out Division street, when the horses ran into a live wire and both were instantly killed. The driver narrowly escaped with his life. The tent of the merry-go round was torn into shreds, aud some of the wooden horses damag ed. A heavy plate-glass wiudow of the Murray-Brooks Hardware Company was shattered by a fall ing sign board.
