Two years ago you were kind enough to eena

falling alckoess, and thov got weil after using

Pastor Kopnig'a Nerve Tonic Is the only medi
cine that over helped one of our sisters who was
suffering from nervousness and sleeplessness for
ten years, we also recommended it to many
others and it always had the desired effect. A
lady in Ohio was suffering from epileptic fits for
several years and found no relief, until she used

Washington, D. C, Dec. 11, 189G.
Senator Allen exploded a bomb
that shook the Senate from centre
to circuraferet ce when he moved
that the Dingley bill be taken up,
and the motion was made up of 23
republicans, 6 democrats, 5 popu
lists and Senator Pettigrew who is
now classed ian independent, and
the vote against it of 2 republicans,
16 democrats and 3 independents,
Cannon, Dubois and Mantle. Sen
ator Allen said he made the motion
without consultation with anybody
and solely to show that the popu
list Senators were not standing in
the way of revenue legislation. In
reply to questions from Senator
Aldrich Mr. Allen said that while
he would not vote for the Dinglev
bill as it passed the House, it
could easily be put in a shape that
would gel his vote and that of oth
er Senators who were not republic
cans, but he did n't mention what
that shape was. The Dingley bill
was before the Senate less than 30
minutes, when the expiration of
the "morning hour" sent it back to
the calendar, Mr. Allen having
failed to get unanimous consent
for it to be the ''unfinished busn
ness of the next. It can be taken
up at any time by a majority vote,
but as the bill is now, owing to the
action of the Senate at the last ses-
sion, a bill for the free coinage of
silver instead of a revenue bill, its
passage in that shape would, be
merely duplication the work f the
Several Cuban resolutions pro
viding for recognition of iudepen!
dence have been offered in both
House and Senate, but Senator
Mills, of Texas, is entitled to the
belt, and it onght to be a blood red
one, for having put the hottest
stuff into a resolution that the old

His resolution directs the Presi
dent to take immediate and forci
ble possession ot Cuba and to pro

as they shall organize a govern

Mr. George E, Nelson, who took
the time and trouble to travel all
the way from Indian Territory to
Washington with no better claim for
se.it in the House as Territorial Del
egate than a certificate of election
of about 300 votes in an elec'ion
held Nov. 3rd at several villages of
the Territory, finds that members
of the House not only fail to recog
nize the legality of his claim but
are also inclined to poke fun at
Senator Kyle, of South Dacota,
professes astonishment at the stor
ies that the canvassing board of the
State was about to throw out on
account of alleged fraud at the
election enough votes to give the
State and possibly the legislature
to the republicans. He said: "Ev
ery one out there thought the elec
tion was conducted in the lairest
kind of a way. I did not hear it
challenged on any side. I scarcely
think the board would attempt to
throw out enough members to
throw it to the republicans. It
would be a high-handed outrage if
it did, and it would cause au up
rising in South Dacota, I can do
nothing but watch the course of
events, but our men are on the
ground all the time, and will bit
terly contest any scheme to de
fraud us ot our rights." Republic
cans are not talking for publican
tion about this matter, but enough
was said at their caucus of Senators
to indicate that some of them ex
pected a republican to succeed Sen
ator Kyle, whose term expires on
the 3rd of next March.
Comptroller Eckles has a plan
which he says in his annual re
port he is certain would go far to

The foundation of his plan is to

circulation and encourage the

operated in a manner somewhat

the filling out of blanks, a in pre

Mr. Fisher did not construct this
complete machine by a sing'e ef
fort, but by a series of successive
improvements upon the original
idea conceived by him several
years ago, and each embodiment
of the mechanism was covered, as
it was developed, by United States
patents. Also, patents have been
secured in the principal foreign
countries in which the machine is
liable to come i nto use.

A Genuine Work of Art.
The Youth's Companion Calen
dar for 1897 is a gem. Four beau
tiful girls represent the four seas
sons. The figures are lithographed
in twelve' colors from original
paintings. The whole Calendar
consists of four folding pages, and
is 10J by 54 inches. It is by far
the best piece of color work the
Companion has ever offered, and
one of the very best ever produced
in this country. It is given free to
all new subscribers who send $1.75
to the Companion for the year 1897.
An Illustrated Prospectus will also
be Bent free to those who address
Thk Youth's Companion,

Another commendable feature
of the Fisher typewriter is that it
can be used as well for writing let
ters, briefs, invoices, and similar
record books. The secret and effi
ciency of the machine resides in
the fact that it rests upon and is
supported by the leaf which is to
receive the impression of the type.
The book is opened at the desired
page and the machine is placed up
on the surface thereof when it is
ready for manipulation without
further adjustment. A column of
any desired width, either equal to
less than the width of the page
may be formed, and during the en
tire operation the line of writing
is within view, so in case a wrong
key is struck it may be detected at
once and the proper characted sub
stituted without affecting the uni
formity of the record. It you wish
to write a letter, the machine is res
moved from the book and placed
upon a baise provided for its recep
tion, having a paper-roll similar to
that which is used upon the stand
