"The Cubans have expected and have worked for reciprocity! on a basis of free trade in sugar a 4,id to bacco. They didn't expect' any trouble about getting it, audi they have been somewhat surprised iu consequeuce. It was well tliai[ the southwestern cane growers i and uorth western beet growers opposed the measure from the start, for it would do much harm to the sugar interests of the United States.'' The speaker was Frederick H. Dobbs, who has been chemist on one of the larger sugar plantations iu Matanzas during the last two years. While Mr. Dobbs was sta tioned iu Matanzas he made fre quent trips through the other pro vinces, and is well acquainted with the agricultural interests of the is land. "Cuban sugar can be produced at less than 1% cents a pound, 96 test, and give the planter a good profit. This tueuus that he can pay the tariff ou it and still land it here as cheaply as it can be made iu Louisiana nndeTexas, and with as much profit as our plauters cau get out of it, pound for pound. "Preparations are going on for the enlargement of sugar planta tions and sugar-houses. Some of the Cuban plantations are enor mous, the acreage running into the thousands. At the same time im provements are being made iu machinery, and American methods are coming iuto more general use every day, and the result will be better than heretofore. "Cuban planters have not gotten as much sugar out of a tou of cane as they should. These imperfect methods are rapidly giving way to the latest and most modern in su gar production. "With the improvemeut in me thod« there will be a great addi tional reduction in the cost of su gar to the planter and an additional advantage in production over the American sugar planter. "It seems like folly for us to ad mit Cuban sugar free nnder these circumstances, and just as much so to give any reduction—even 20 per cent, ftiey can beat the Louisiana planter now with the tariff, and with the improvement of their me thods th«y will beat him even fur ther. Tkey hare a good enough show as it is to succeed and get rich if they have enough enterprise. "Cuba produced an average of 8 00,000 tots of sugar with old me thods, cqptbiog the cane imper fectly and getting much less of the saccharine contents than they should get. "This year the acreage is in creased, aud euough of the old plantations brought back to pro duction to raise the yield to at least 1,000,000 tons. That alone is enough to supply half the sugar importation of this country. Yet it will be increased much further in the next few years. "With Hawaiian sugar and Phil ippines sugar on the same footing, the Louisiana planter might as well go ont. of business. "Besides the old plantations, new ones are being laid out and modern machiuery is going in by the hundred tons. In a few years Cuba's sugar output will be enor mous. "I believe Cuba will be admitted to the uuiou in less than two years, and then, of course, there will be no tariff. Louisiana sugar inter ests will suffer then. There is no use making them sugar now." Mr. Dobbs says there is a very strong sentiment in the island in favor of annexation. It will come eventually under sny circum stances, but will be accelerated if the Cuban government don't please the people or if there is a split be tweeu the governing powers, which there undoubtedly will be. The Cubaus want to try free govern ment for a while, but only because they kuow they have nothing to lose, as they can appeal to the United States when they want to, and protection is assured. Biliousness is a condition characterized by a disturbance of the digestive organs. The stomach is debilitated, the liver tor pid, the bowels constipated. There is a loathing of food, pains in the bowels, diz ziness, coated tongue and vomiting, first of the undigested or partly digested food *nd then of bile. Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets allay the disturbance of the stomach and create a healthy appe tite. They also tone up the liver to a healthy action and regulate the bowels. Try them and you are certain to be much pleased with the result. For sale by Jas. A. Lee, Druggist. What the overtaxed people of this country long to see is an "émerger." They have beeu swamped by "mergers." Like A Itrowniny Man. "Five years ago a disease the doctors called dyspepsia took such hold of me that I could scarcely go," writes Geo. S. Marsh, well-known attorney of Nocona, Tex. "I took quantities of pepsin and other medicines but nothing helped me. As a drowning man grabs at a stiaw I grabbed at Kodol. I felt an improvement mt once and after m few bottles am sound and well." Kodol is tbe only preparation which exactly reproduces the natural di gestive juices and consequently is the only one whieh digest* any good food and cures any form of atomaeh trouble. Jno. B. Taylor. The Increasing Consumption of Sufar in the United States. Some datu recently compiled by the United States Treasury Bureau of Statistics bring out vividly the enormous increase in the consump tion of sugar in this country. In 1870 the total consumption of sugar iu the United States was about 566,000 long tons. In 1901, a lapse of 31 years, the consumption of sugar in the United States reached 2,360,000 long tons, more than four times the consumption of 1878, or 417 per cent. Spring Ailments. There is an aching and tired feeling; the liver, bowels and kidneys become sluggish an inactive, the digestion im paired, with little or no appetite, no am bition for anything, and a feeling that the whole body and mind needs toning up. Tho trouble is, that during winter, there has been au accumulation of waste matter in the system, Herbine will remove it, securo to the secretions a right exit, and by its tonic effect, fully restore the wasted tissues and givo strength in place of weak ness. 50e at Estorge Drug Co.

St. Louis, May 10.—Alonson Wood, a retired builder and an in ventor of prominence, of Toledo, Ohio, has applied for a patent ou a flying machine 42 feet high, 30 feet wide, and weighing about two tons. It is a departure from other machines, consisted of tilted plane*? or propellors, which are made to revolve around the central shaft. These planes have a total area of 1200 square feet and will be driven by a gasoline motor. The engine is ten feet square, and the lifting capacity is estimated at 12 tons. Other propellers will drive the machine through the air at a veloc ity which Mr. Wood estimates at a mile a minute. Mr. Wood is the inventor of the roller coaster and sold his rights therein for $30,000. Cures Iffien Doctor» Fail. Mrs. Frank ('hiasson, Patterson, La., writes June 8tb, 1901: "I had malaria fever in very bad form, was under treat ment by doctors, but as soon as I stopped taking their medicine the fever would re turn. I used a sample bottle of Herbine, fonnd it helped me. Then bought two bottlea, which completely cured me. I feel grateful to you for furnishing such a splendid medicine, and can honestly rec ommend it to those suffering from malaria, as it will surely cure them." Herbine, 50c bottle at Estorge Drug Co.

"I have used DeWitt'a Little Early Risers for constipation and torpid liver and they are all right.

State Treasurer LeDoux E. Smith is quite a progressive citizen. He proposes to reap some of the fruits of Alexandria's progress. The Town Talk informs us that he is about to erect a ton thousaud dol lar building on one of his lots in that city. It says : "The building will have a pressed brick front and side, plate glass windows, water, electric lights and sewer connections. It will front on Third street. The second floor will be fitted up in the most modern manner for offices. Mr. Smith ex pects to have the building ready for occupancy by September 1st.
