ANNEXATION STILL THE CUBAN
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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.

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.
There is an aching and tired feeling;
the liver, bowels and kidneys become

whole body and mind needs toning up.

has been au accumulation of waste matter

AN OHIO MAN'S AIRSHIP.
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.

writes June 8tb, 1901: "I had malaria
fever in very bad form, was under treat

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,
