lie Sounds a Note of Warning That
Should Be Heeded by All.
One of the points where science
teaches as that what is might have
been avoided, is jn the matter of ir
regular teeth. "A great petcentage of
the irregular teeth we see," says Dr.
Thomas 11. White, at the northeast
corner of Morrison and Fourth streets,
"is caused by the lack of proper care
of the infant teeth. When we come
to MMkUw the great number of teeth
in malposition, the subject of the care
of the iirst teeth assumes new import
ance to us." In discussing this matter
with a representative of the press, re
cently, he said among other things:
"Mothers cannot be too careful in their
consideration of the condition and
cbaiacter of the first teeth of their
children. The object of this is not to
allow the decay of the first teeth to
proceed so far that they become ulcer
ated or abceesea form at their roots, in
which case extraction is the only solu
tion of the trouble. The iirst teeth
should bo retained until nature is ready
to supplant them with other teeth.
This can be accomplished by the tem
porary filling of cavities so that the
teeth mny be depended upon in the
mastication of food. The very exercise
of the teeth, as with any other organ of
the body, will aid in keeping them in a
healthy condition. Every part of the
body has a function to perform, and
should De maintained in a healthy con
dition to accomplish it if possible.
Every tooth, therefore, that is extract
ed interferes to a certain degree with
the preparatory process of digestion.
Of course, it is not to the interest of
the dentist to have teeth taken care of
too well."

YOUNG AT SIXTY.
Serene comfort and happiness in ad*
•vanced years are realized by compara
tively few women.
Their hard lives, their liability to se
rious troubles on account of their pecu
liar organism and their profound igno
rance concerningl themselves, all com
bine to shorten the period of usefulness
and fill their iateryears with suffering*.
Mrs. Pinkham has done much to make
women strong. She has given advice
to many that has shown them how to
guard against disease and retain vigor
ous health in old age. Prom every cor
ner of the earth there is constantly com
ing the most eonvlnciug statements
from women, showing the efficacy of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound in overcoming female ills. Here
is a letter from Mrs. J. C. Orms, of 220
Borner St., Johnstown, Pa., which is
earnest and straight to the point:
•■ Dear Mbs. Piskham.—l feel It my
duty to tell all suffering women that I
think jour remedies are wonderful. I
had trouble with my head, dizzy spells
and hot flashes. Feet and hands were
cold, was very nervous, could not sleep
well, Lad kidney trouble, pain in
ovaries and congestion of the womb.
Since taking your remedies I am better
every way My head trouble is all
gone, have no pain in ovaries, and am
cured of womb trouble. I can eat and
sleep well and am gaining in flesh. I
consider your medicine the best to be
had for female troubles."
The present Mrs. Pinkham's experi
ence in treating female ills is unparal
lellcd, for years she worked side by
side with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, and
for sometime past has had sole charge
of the correspondence department of
her great business, treating by letter
as many as a hundred thousand <MHpy
women during a single year.
HOMAGE TO THE QUEEN.
Bolland'* You* SoTeralfn'a Bnthnatr
astic Greeting.
Amsterdam, Sept. I.—Queen Wil
heimina arrived at the railway depot
in Amsterdam at 8 o'clock, and was en
thusiastically received. The burgo
master delivered an address of wel
come, to which her majesty replied:
"For a long time past 1 have been
looking forward to this moment, which
is the most soiemn of my lite."
The queen briefly addressed the va
rious crowds assembled to welcome her.
The burgomaster's daughter presented
her majesty with bouquets of orange
flowers tied with native ribbons. The
entire court, in carriages, participated
in the procession to the palace. A
guard of honor, composed of generals,
escorted the royal carriage.
After the burgomaster had delivered
a speech of welcome, the queen drove
to the Damplatz. The uniformed
guards lined the entire route, and kept
hack the throngs. After Burgomaster
Vandenhoven, governor of the province
of Northern Holland, had offered the
province's homage, in the course of his
speech referring to the ties that for
more than three centuries had bound
the provinces and house of Orange, the
queen repliod:
"I am glad that this day has ar
rived."
Six hours before the queen arrived,
200,000 people*had assembled in the
streets and around the palace. Her
majesty appeared at 2:30 o'clock, P.
M., preceded by 80 divisions, including
representatives of the army and navy,
governmental and municipal officials,
and princes from Holland's East Indian
colonies, who came here expressly to
witness the. enthroning of the young
queen.
The royal coach was of white, orna
mented with gold and drawn by eight
black horses. Queen Wilhelmina, who
looked pale and tired, bowed and waved
her handkerchief continually. In front
of the palace, the army and navy were
drawn up in the form of n great square.
The coach passed along the four sides
of the square before drawing up at the
entrance to the palace.
A few minutes later Queen Wil
helmina appeared upon the balcony and
bowed repeatedly to the 60,000 people
who approached the palace waving
handkerchiefs, hats and flags.
Meanwhile many bands were playing
national airs, chimes of bells were ring
ing and steam whistles shrieking their
salutes to the young sovereign.
FIERCE STREET DUEL.
Mississippi Men Fight to the Death,
Showing Poor Marksmanship.
New Orleans. Sept. 7.—A special
from Meridian, Miss., says: The most
desperate duel in the history of Merid
ian occurred this morning beween Jim
Firmer and Aleck Webb, his son-in-law.
Both emptied two revolvers. Webb re
treated into a jewelry store, followed by
Firmer, still shooting. The daughter
of Firmer attempted to kill the officer
who went in to arrest the men. A fu
sil lade passed between Firmer and his
daughter and Webb and his daughters
in the store. Webb was shot three
times. He will die. Firmer was hit
three times before he was killed by
Citizen Burgess. Webb, three weeks
ago, was shot by Firmer, who waylaid
him, and this morning ended the trag
edy. Webb married Finner's daughter,
and bad blood has since existed.
Strikes at Manila.
Manila, Sept. 7. —There have been
several labor strikes here, the demand
being for excessive wages. Because the
American authorities in the early exi
gencies of the situation agreed to ex
travagant demands of the laborers, it
has been difficult to return to an equi
table basis. One of .these strikes caused
the suspension of traffic on the tram
ways of Manila for three days.
Copies of the new tariff have been
circulated heie, but it has not yet been
enforced. Pending the receipt of in
structions from Washington, it is esti
mated that under the American tariff
there will be an average reduction of
one-third, as compared with that of
Spain. An insurgent newspaper print*
ed in the Spanish language appeared
here today.
British Flag- Flying.
London, Sept. 7.—The war office re
ceived this evening the following dis
patch, dated at Omdurman yesterday,
from General Sir Herbert Kitchener:
"This morning the British and Egyp
tian flags were hoisted with due cere
mony upon the walls of the palace in
Khartoum. All the British wounded
have left for Abadia in barges towed by
steamers. I saw them before leaving.
They were all doing well and were com
fortable. The cavalry sent in pursuit
of the khalifa were compelled to aban
don the attempt, owing to the exhaus
tion of the hoises, but I have ordered
the oamel squads to continue the pur
suit."
Two British Officer* and 23 Ken Killed
London, Sept 7.—The official list
gives the number of British officers
killed in the capture of Omdurman at
two, while 13 were wounded. Of the
men, 23 were killed and 99 wounded.
The losses sustained by the Egyptian
officers were one killed and eight
wounded; men, 20 killed, 221 wounded.
Dispatches from Omdurman relate that
a newspaper correspondent named
Howard, whb was afterwards killed,
participated in the gallant charge of
the Twenty-first Lancers.
Was It Andre*.
Chicago, Sept. 7.—A special to the
Times-Herald from Winnipeg, Mani
toba, saye: Indians reaching Dauphin
from the far north report meeting an
Eskimo who told of the appearance
among them of a strange man, who de
scended from the clouds on the shores
of Hudson bay. The opinion among
the whites is that file man is Andree,
the Arctic explorer.

men consist of 10,000 men.

Annapolis, Md., Sept 7.—Admiral
Cervera, of the Spanish navy, accom
panied by Lieutenant Cervera, bis son,
left heie today for Norfolk for the pur
pose of completing arrangements for
the transportation to Spain of the
prisoners now confined at Portsmouth,
N. H., who were captured in the naval
fight off Santiago. Admiral Cervera
and his son were driven to the railway
station in Admiral McNair's carriage.

Jk. Sample of a Good Her*.
Prof. Dean C. Worcester contribute*
to the September Century an article on
"The Malay Pirates of the Pnilip
pinee." Speaking of his guide, Profes
sor Worcester says:
Toolawee was considered a good
Moro, and we were therefore interested
in certain incidents which gave us an
insight into his character. After sat
isfying himself by observation that we
could use our rifles with some effect,
he made us a rather startling business
proposition in the following words:
"You gentlemen shoot quite well with
the rifle." "Yes; we have had some
experience." "You desire to get sam
ples of the clothing and arms of my
countrymen for your collection?"
"Yes." "Papa (General Arolas) told
you, if you met armed Moors outside
the town, to order them to lay down
their arms and retire?" "Yes." "Papa
does not understand my people as I do.
They are all bad. When we meet
them, do not ask them to lay down
their arms., for they will come back
again, and get them, and probably at
tack us. Just shoot as many of them
as possible. You can then take their
arms and clothing, and I will cut off
theii headß, shave their eyebrows, show
them to papa, and claim the reward for
killing juramentados." He never real
ly foigave us for refusing to enter into
partnership with him on this very
liberal basis.
A Friendly Ceremony in Old Cuba.
The Century for September prints
an article on "Life and Society in Old
Cuba," being extracts from the journal
of Jonathan S. Jenkins, an American
painter of miniatures, written in 1859.
Mr. Jenkins Bays:
When an acquaintance visits a pri
vate residence, cigars are handed round
on a silver salver; if the visitor be an
intimate friend, one of the young girls
of the family, called a "donzallia,"
lights a cigar and giving it a few draws
to get well lighted, gracefully presents
i-fc to him. If the guitar is brought in,
as usually occurs (for there is one in
every house), and the visitor plays, his
cigar is kept lighted by the donzalia,
and at each pause in the music she po
litely hands it to the guest. This may
occur several times in an evening, and
this friendly ceremony is pleasant
enough when the cigar comes from the
pouting lips of a rich Spanish beauty
just ripening into womanhood, bat in
any sase it muss be thankfully accepted.

PRESIDENT AT WIKOFF.

--tlag* Campaign.
Gamp Wikoff, Montank Point, N.
V., B^tfe:—President McKinleylnent
five hoars in the camp today, bare
headed most of the time, visiting the
lick in the hospitals and inspecting
the well in their cantonments. Be
made a speech to the assembled in
fantrymen, reyiew©cl|thie % cavalrymen,
expressed his opinion of the camp to
the reporters, and issued an order di
recting the* regiments to return to
their stations east of the Mississippi. ;
■; With the president were Vice-Presi
dent Hobait, Secretary of War Alger,
Attorney-General Qriggs, Senator Red
field Proctor, Brigadier-General ;g Egan,
commissary of the array; General Lud«
ington, quartermaster of ; the army;
Colonel Henry Heoker, and ? Secretaries
to the President Poiter and Cortelyou.
The ladies of ; the party were Mrs. Al
ger and Hecker, a daughter of
Colonel Hecker.:;,:: '-"-' ' --C- - -. ■"'"• ~- *
General Wheeler, ; his staff, and
nearly every officer of prominence ; : in
the camp met the president at the sta
: tion, except General > Shaf ter, who iis
still in bed, and General Young, who
fell and broke his arm last night.
After greetings and ti introductions on •
the< railway platform, t ; the piesident
took General Wheeler's : arm and went
to a carriage.
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, iof the
rough riders, i was among : a " group oi
horsemen nearby. Mr. McKinley saw
him and : got out of v the carriage to
•speak to him. Colonel Roosevelt: bas{
tily "dismounted and tnsseled with a
gauntlet for 15 : seconds, so that un
gloved he might shake hands. .'
- The column of carriages -wound up a
-hill,, escorted by the Third cavalry reg
iment, and the ; mounted band of the:
Sixth ' cavalry. The party; paused; a
moment on the hill, and the ; president
looked out on the wide, ; undulating
camp, water bounding each i side ? and
whitened on the levels and hilltops by
the tents of 18,000 men, laid out in
geometric lines. :r : '-t; .'~l S ;
Mr. 'MoKinley drove to General
Shafter's tent in the detention camp.
The general, who : was "I fluehed i and
weak from a mild case of malarial
■ fever, was in full unfiorm, sitting in a
chair at the door of the tent. He tried
to rise, but President McKinley said:
"Stay where : you are, general; you
are entitlted to rest."
The president congratulated General
Shatter on the Santiago victory, and
after a few minutes' rest, proceeded to
the general hospital. The soldiers re*
cently arrived on the transports and
detained in the detention section ol
the camp lined up irregularly on each
side of the road and cheered. The
president took off his straw hat then,
and scarcely more than put it on for
more than a minute or two at a time
during the remainder of his progress
through the camp.
Miss Wheeler, a daughter of the gen
eral, happened to be in the first row of
the hospital tents, and she showed the
president through her division.
General Wheeler announced in each
ward: "Boys, the president has come
to see you;" or, "Soldiers, the presi
dent 61 the United States."
Some of the soldiers slept uncon
scious, some listlessly raised upon theii
elbows, others feebly clapped theii
hands. Mr. McKinley gently shook
hands with many, and at every cot he
paused an instant, and if he saw the
sick man looking at him he bowed in a
direct and personal way.
In the second ward the president en
tered. Sergeant John A. Alexander,
company D, First Illinois, who has a
tever, was rather startled to hear Gen
eral Wheeler announce the president.
The seigeant half raised upon his cot.
Mr. McKinley, attracted by the move
ment, took Alexander's hands and
said:
"I am sorry to see you so sick. I
hope that you are getting better."
"Thank you; I think I shall get
well."
"Do you wish for anything?" asked
General Wheeler.
"No, I have everything good for me,
I guess," Alexander replied wearily,
"but I wish I were home."
"I hope that we may soon get you
there," said Mr. McKinloy.
He had many such bits of talk with
the men, and seemed to be in nc
hurry. He almost outwore the pa
tience of all his party by his slow
going through ward after ward.
Ambushed by Indians.
Tacoma, Wash., Sept. 6.—The
schooner J. M. Coleman, which arrived
on the Sound today from St. Michaels,
brings news that two prospectors were
ambushed while drifting down the Yu
kon in a boat. Indians fired on the
boat, killing one and wounding the
other. .The wounded man escaped,
and reached a police camp. Police
started,and found the Indians enjoying
the prospectors' supplies. They were
brought to Dawson, where one of the
Indians made a confession.
Mr. Frank, who came on the Cole

-DEAFNESS CANNOT B* CUBED
By local applications, ac they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ; ear. _, There Is Only one
way to cure deafness,* and that is tby i constitu
tional remedies. Deafness fis caused by an In
flamed condition \ of • the »mucoos lining of the
> Eustachian ■ Tube. When \ this : tube ? gets : in
flamed " too have a rumbling sound or imper
fect hearing, and when . it is entirely closed
; deafness is the result, and unless the inflamma
tion can be taken out and this tube restored to
< its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine cases out ot tea are caused by
i catarrh, which »is a nothing * but aa ' inflamed
condition of the mucous mrnees/st^apEES^a
