Western Newspaper Union News Berries. New York.—Alvah H Doty, health officer of the port, regards the chol •ra situation as being well in hand but does not conceal his apprehen sion that New York is "in the very midst of a threatened invasion of cholera.’* Further, Dr. Doty said, “the quar antine department of every port in this country is facing a very serious and onerous task during the summer,’* and it is not improbable that many vessels arriving from Italy in the next few weeks will bring one or more cases of the disease. The official report of the situation ■hows there are fifteen cases at Swinburne Island hospital and four cases symptomatic of the disease. One more victim has died. The steamer Perugia has been de tained and the medical staff is pre paring to make bacteriological exam lnatlous of the 248 persons from the ■teamer Moltke who are now under observation.

Government officials scout the idea that there is any danger of anything approaching an epidemic of cholera. They believe the few cases are merely sporadic and such as have been dis covered have been carefully traced and all means have been employed to pre vent a spread of the plague. Gas Kills 21 Miners.

Addrees Profeseor Munyon, 53-1 A •fferaon Hta., Philadelphia, Pa. If you are in need of medical advice, do not fail to write Profeaaor Munyon. Your communi cation will be treated in strict confidence, and your caae will be diagnosed aa care fully as though you had a personal inter* view, Munyon’a Paw Paw Pills are unlike all other laxative* or cathartlca. Thay coax the liver into activity by gentla method*. They do not scour, they do not gripe, they do not weaken, but they do start all the eecretions of the liver and stomach in away that soon puta these organs in a healthy condition and corrects constipation. In my opinion constipation ia responsible for moat ail ments. There are 26 feet of human bowels, which ia really a sewer pipe. When this pipe becomes clogged the whole ayitem becomes poisoned, caus ing biliousness, indigestion and impure blood, which often produce rheumatism and kidney ailments. No woman who suffers with constipation or any liver ailment can expect to have a clear complexion or enjoy good health. If I had my way I would prohibit the sale of nine tenths of the cathartics that are now being sold for the reason that they soon destroy the lining of the stomach, setting up serious forma of indigestion, and so paralyze the bowels that they re fuse to act unless forced by strong purgatives. Munyon’s Paw Paw Pills are a tonic to the stomach, liver and nerves. They invigorate instead of weaken; they en rich the blood Instead of Impoverish it; they enable the stomach to get all the nourishment from food that is put into it. These pilla contain no calomel, no dope; they are soothing, healing and stimulating. They school the bowels to act without physic. Regular size bottle, containing 45 pilla, 25 cents.
