A WONDERFUL WOMAN.
The career of China’s empress do
wager reads like a romance. Today’s
dispatches in The Press indicate that
she is once more in supreme control at
Pekin. She is the daughter of
a Manchu noble, who, as we learn
from The Independent, being on the
yerge of starvation, sold his daughter
to a rich mandarin. She was treated as
half daughter and half slave, but was
thoroughly educated, learned, to read
and write before she was 8 years old
.and, in doing the marketing for the
family, developed considerable bus
iness ability. In 1848 the emperor
issued a marriage proclamation calling
on all eligible Manchu maidens be
tween the ages of 15 and 19 to present
themselves at the palace and stand an
examination for secondary wives.
This was a sort of civil service test.
The young girl immediately decided to
enter the list. Her adopted parents
laughed at her, but she was spirited
and determined. They gave her a
handsome outfit and enough money to
travel from Canton to Pekin in a style
becoming a Manchu princess. There
the young girl, by her grace and at
tainments, passed among the first ten
in the imperial examination. She was
taken to the palace and installed in the
woman’s quarter. She commenced to
plan and intrigue and, by her tact and
intelligence, made friends with the em
press. After a while she was thrown in
the company of the emperor, won his
admiration and affection, and finally
presented him with a son. Her influ
ence with emperor became so great
that by proclamation he appointed her
empress of the west. She became the
real power behind the throne, though
she was careful never to cross the real
empress. In 1860 the emperor of China
died and Tsi An’s 5-year-old son as
cended the throne under the regency of
the two empresses. The boy develped
considerable intelligence, but died at
the age of 19 and suspicion of foul play
rested even upon his mother.
Under the new emperor and since th®
death of the sistei empress in 1881
Tsi An has been the mistress of China’s
destiny, controlling the people and the
councils. Even now the great powers
are warned in case of the capture of
Pekin not to kill the empress dowager
because she is such a favorite with the
people. The empress dowager with
acumen has noted the growing power
of foreign nations and has resisted it.
She has been especially hostile to Eng
land. The present insurrection is
though to be fomented by the em
press herself. The indications are, ac
cording to The Literary Digest, that
Tsi An is playing the last and most
desperate card to secure a continua
tion of her own rule. The empress
dowager is opposed to reform and
the anti-foreign party.
This remarkable woman wag born in
1835. When she became empress of the
west her body was graceful and, ac
cording to a poetical writer, “her body
was as attracive and supple as the
neck of a swan under the water.”
‘ ‘She has a broad forehead; a nose co
quettish, straight, and slender—singu
larly sensitive to all impressions.” Her
eyes are a brilliant black. She has not
been without her love affairs and has
never hesitated at violence to carry out
her plan. Two years ago she forced
her way into the emperor’s chamber,
took with her various witnesses, and
compelled the emperor to acknowledge
that he was an accomplice in British
plots. She heaped abuse upon him,
boxed his ears, and forced him to sign
a decree making her empress regent.—
Severe Damage at Youngstown.
Youngstown, 0., July 12.—The se
vere storm caused a sudden rise in Mill
creek, destroying two ice houses of the
Youngstown Ice company, swept away
a bridge and washed out tracks to the
steel plant and caused damage amount
ing to $50,000. The storm was general,
a number of towns along the Mahoning
river being flooded.
NEW YORK POLITICS.
The Eastern papers are indulging in
post-convention stories, and one which
has appeared in several is that the
specific mention of silver in the plat
form assures New York State to the
Republicans; that this is what Croker
wanted, that there is an understanding
between him and Platt,by whichCroker
is to be left in undisturbed possession
of the city of New York, and Platt of the
State. This idea is furthered by a
frank statement made by one of Platt’s
henchmen to a reporter:
With 16 to 1 in the Kansas City plat
form, New York is sure Republican,
and we won’t have to consult the mug
wumps in making up our State ticket.
We will put good men on the ticket,
of course, but there will be no taint of
mugwumpery about them. Every
man will be a straight Republican, and
we will have a straight Republican
State Administration next year.
This means that one of Platt’s
“boys”will be nominated for Governor
—no more of the Roosevelt semi-inde
pent nonsens —with the hope that the
looked-for McKinley majority will
carry him or any other Republican in
to office. The way for the Democrats
to overcome this is to nominate a man
for Governor who is not one of the
Croker “boys” and give the respect
able people of New York a man to vote
Hon. James D. Richardson, the per
manent chairman of the Kansas City
convention,explains why the sixteen to
one plank was put in the democratic
platform. As matter of fact, it would
have been suicidal to have omitted the
plank with Bryan at the head of the
ticket. Mr. Bryan has advocated six
teen to one so long and so vigorously
that an omission of a free silver plank
from the platform on which he was
nominated would have been little short
of actual cowardice. It belonged in
the platform and we are very glad it
was put there.
HEAD CRUSHED WITH A CUE.
Oscar Mann Killed By John Alexan
der at Decatur.
Decatur, Ala., July 12. —John Alex
ander killed Oscar Mann with a billiard
cue in G. F. Buchheit’s saloon. Mann
had had a difficulty with a painter
named Hightower. Hightower was a
smaller man than Mann, and after the
fight Alexander, in a joking way, as he
says, remarked “I’d take some of that
myself,” referring to the fact that Mann
was a larger and heavier man than
Hightower. Alexander then went into
the saloon and began playing pool.
Mann entered the saloon and words
passed between the two men. Alexan
der said Mann ought to fight a man his
own size. Mann said:
“Well, I’ll fight you, but not with
Alexander struck Mann and as the
latter staggered back, brought the bil
liard cue down with terrible force on
top of Mann’s head. As man was sink
ing to the floor, Alexander again struck
him, crushing Mann’s skull.
The surgeons removed pieces of bone
equal to 4 square inches.
MARKET STILL AN OPEN ONE
Conditions In Iron and Steel Trades
Are Most Unfavorable.
New York, July 12. —The conditions
of the iron and steel trade'is not viewed
with favor, nor has it been improved by
the recent conferences of officers of large
pig iron and steel producing companies
held in this city.
Efforts were made to secure some kind
of an agreement relative to prices on
Bessemer pig iron and steel, but the
conferences resulted in leaving the mar
ket open. Severe reductions have since
been made in prices and information re
ceived from Pittsburg is to the effect
that the Bessemer pig iron has been
offered at sl6 and i teel billets at S2O
without bringing out any considerable
amount of business.
The most important occurrence in the
metal trade the past week was a reduc
tion in the price of pig lead. The fluctu
ations in this metal have recently been
rapid, and have completely mystified the
Chartered by the Government.
San Francisco, July 12.—The new
freight steamer California, with a ca
pacity of 8,000 tons, has been chartered
by the United States government to
carry freight to Manila. The Strath
gyle, a vessel of equal size, will also be
loaded at once with stores for the Phil
Aged Physician Suicides.
New York, July 12. Dr. Charles
Butt of 43 Bryan place, Chicago, died
here from the effects of a dose of lauda
num. He was about 80 years of age.
When the excretory organs fail to carry off the waste material from the system, there is an abnor*
mal accumulation of effete matter which poisons and clogs the blood, and it becomes sour and acid. v<- - M
This poison is carried through the general circulation to all parts of the body, and upon reaching j \\\\
the skin surface there is a redness and eruption, and by certain peculiarities we recognize Eczema, \\ ’
Tetter, Acne, Salt Rheum, Psoriasis, Erysipelas and many other skin troubles, more or less severe. yKY "ik'*A jN
While the skin is the seat of irritation, the real disease is in the blood. Medicated lotions and \
powders may allay the itching and burning, but never cure, no matter how long and faithfully ’
continued, aud the condition is often aggravated aud skin permanently injured by their use.
The disease is more limn shin deep; the entire elrenisEian is poisoned.
The many preparations of arsenic, mercury, potash, etc., not only do not cure skin diseases, but soon ruin the digestion
and break down the constitution.
S. S. S., nature’s own remedy, made of roots, herbs and barks, of great purifying and tonical properties, quickly and
effectually cures blood and skin troubles, because it goes direct to the root of the disease and stimulates and restores normal,
healthy action to the different organs, cleanses and enriches the blood, and thus relieves the system of all poisonous secretions.
S. S. fc>. cures permanently because it leaves none of the original poison to referment in the blood and cause a fresh attack.
Healthy blood is necessary to preserve that clear, smooth skin and beautiful com
m plexion so much desired by all. S. S. S. can be relied upon with certainty to keep
t^ie t>loo<l in perfect order. It has been curing blood and skin diseases for half a cen
tury ; no other medicine can show such a record.
’X S- S. contains no poisonous minerals —is purely vegetable and harmless.
- O ur medical department is in charge of physicians of large experience in treating
blood and skin diseases, who will take pleasure in aiding by their advice and direction all
? who desire it. Write fully and freely about your case ; your letters are held in strictest
confidence. We make no charge whatever for this service. Our book on Blood and
