" STRONG STATEMENTS.
Three Women Relieved of Femala
Troubles by Mrs. Pinkham.
From Mrs. A. W. Smith, 59 Summer
St., lliddeford, Me.:
"For several years I suffered with
various diseases peculiar to my sex.
Was troubled with a burning sensation
across the fsmall of my back, that all
gone feeling, was despondent, fretful
and discouraged; the least exertion
tired me. I tried several doctors but
received little benefit. At last I de
cided to give your Lydia E. Tinkham's
Vegetable Compound a trial. The ef
fect of the first bottle was magical.
Those symptoms of weakness that I
was afflicted with, vanished like vapor
before the sun. I cannot speak too
highly of your valuable remedy. It is
truly a boon to woman."
From Mrs. Melissa Pnnxirs, Lex
ington, Ind., to Mrs. Pinkham:
"Before I began takingyour medicine
I had suffered for two years with that
tired feeling, headache, backache, no ap
petite, and a run-down condition of the
system. I could not walk across the
room. I have J;aken four bottles of tho
Vegetable Compound, one box of Liver
Pills and used one package of Sanative
Wash, and now feel like a new woman,
and am able to do my work."
0 From Mrs. Mollis E. IIerekl, Pow
ell Station, Tenn.:
"For three years I suffered with such a
weakness of the back, I could not
perform my household duties. I also
had falling of the womb, terrible bearing-down
pains and headache. I have
taken two bottles of Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound and feel
like a new woman. I recommend your
medicine to every woman I know."

The Anaocintod l're gives the fol
lowing detailed story of the act of
heroism performed hj Lieutenant
liirhmonil I. Holmon and his hcvoii
t'miHiiiions in sinking tlie collier Mer-
runac across the ciianuel lending into
the harbor of Santiago de Culm:
The narrow channel leading into
the harlior was coinpletcdy Mocked
early Friday morning when the United
States collier Merrimac was sunk
across its entrance. It is now ininos
aible for the Spaniards to get out, and
it is equally impossible for any Tessels
to get into the harbor, therefore, the
Spanish first class armored cruisers
Maria Terea, Cristobal Colon, Vizcaya
and Almirante Oiiuendo, with the two
topedo boat destroyers Furor and Tin
ton, are no longer any use to Spain.
Lieutenant Ilobson started on his
daring errand at 3 o'clock Friday
morning. Tho Merrimac was lying to
the westward, and under cover of the
clouds over the moon, she stole in
toward the coast, making her way to
the eastward, followed by a launch.
From the crowded decks of the
New York nothing could be seen of the
Merrimac afUr she had got under the
shadow of tho hills. For half an hour
officers and men strained their eyes
peering into the gloom, when, sud
denly, the flash of a gun streamed out
from Morro castle and then all on
board the New York knew the Merri
was nearing her end. The gnus from
the Spanish battery opposite Morro
castle answered quickly with more
Hashes, and for about twenty minutes
flashes of fire seemed to leap across
the harbor entrance.
The flagship was too far away to
hear the reports, and when the firing
ceased it was judged that Hobson had
blown np the Merrimac. For an hour
the anxious watchers on the steam

Admiral Sampson and Captain Chad-
w ick remaining on the bridge of the
New York throughout the night.
Then Cadet Powell, who was in
command of the steam yacht, return
ing, reported that he had clearly seen
the Merrimac's masts sticking up just
where Hobson hoped to sink her
north of the Estrella battery and well
past the guns of Mom. Hut of the
heroes who had penned the Spaniards
in there was not a sound or sign.
Hear Admiral Sampson said: "I am
pretty sure the attempt was quite suc
cessful, i hope all those brave fellows
are not captured."
Cadet Powell, in makiug his report,
said he believed the torpedoes pre
viously fixed about the Merrimac were
exploded as planned.
What actually happened on board
the Merrimac will not be known until
Ilobson tells it himself.
Great admiration is expressed at the
department at the coolness and discre
tion shown by the young cadet, Geo.
W. Powell, who tookcommand of the
New York's steam launch and lay un
der the batteries until he was satisfied,
from his own observation, that the
Merrimac had gone down before he
returned to the flagship.
The men Ilobson selected to go with
him were Daniel Montague, George
Charette, J.C. Murphy.Oscar Deignan,
Johu P. Phillips, John Kelly and H.
Clausen. The latter, a coxswain of the
New York, took pnrt in the expedition

take part in the expedition , is a cox

PROMOTION FOR 1I0BS0'.
Gallant Lieutenant Will Be Honored By
1 the Government.
A Washington dispatch says: The
promotion in store for Lieutenant Hob
son, the hero of Santiago, is under con
sideration by the navy department.
Acting Secretary Allen and Commo
dore Hichborn, chief of the bureau of
naval construction, have already talked
over the matter. The department is
desirous of knowing what would be
most acceptable to Ilobson himself,
and when that is learned, a recom
mendation will be matte to congress,
which will doubtless carry it into
effect without delav.
