Intention to blockade the port and

given Rear Admiral Badger there had

open to all commerce.
That the Huerta blockade decree
will be carried out was verified by Ad
miral Badger in a report to the Navy
Department from Vera Cruz. The ad

were steaming toward Tampico.
The Americau cruiser Tacoma and

Another change has been made In
the number of dead. The latest fig
ures, given out in an official state
ment by the Canadian Pacific Railway
Steamship Company, show that 1.024
persons perished. The company has
learned that there were 1,476 persona

of the 450 persons who survived the

by the crew of the Storatad, while
thirty others, rescued by the Stop
stad’s men, were placed on the gov
ernment steamship Eureka.
The lifeboats of the Empress of Ire
land are credited with saving 125 and
bringing them on board the Storstad.
“The Storstad’s small boats,” Cap
tain Lange says, “were loaded to the
limit of their capacity, and they
ceased their efforts only when there
were no more to be saved.”
Government vessels have been as
signed to patrol the St. I.«awrence
river in search of any more of the Em
press of Ireland’s dead.
In sixty-nine counties and colonies
on Sunday memorial services will be
held by some 200,000 soldiers of the
Salvation Army in memory of the 138
members of the organization who per
ished when the Norwegian collier

What is Castoria.
/’"'ASTORIA is a harmless substitute for Castor Oil, Paregoric, Drops and
Soothing Syrups. It is pleasant. It contains neither Opium, Morphine nor
other Narcotic substance. Its age is its guarantee. It destroys Worms and allays
Feverishness. For more than thirty years it has been in constant use for the relief
of Constipation, Flatulency, Wind Colic, all Teething Troubles and Diarrhoea. It
regulates the Stomach and Bowels, assimilates the Food, giving healthy and
natural sleep. The Children's Panacea—The Mother’s Friend,
The Kind You Have Always Bought, and which has been in use for over.
30 years, has borne the signature of Chas. H. Fletcher, and has been made under
his personal supervision since its infancy. Allow no ono to deceive you in this.
All Counterfeits, Imitations and “ Just-as-good” are but Experiments that trifle with
and endanger the health of Infants and Children—Experience against Experiment.

Just a Few Reasons Why There
Should Be an Advance in Price
of Summer Necessity.
The ice trust having offered a silver
loving-cup for the best excuse which
might be invented for raising the
price of ice after the cold winter, we
hopefully submit the following:
1. The ice being so thick and heavy,
it costs more to handle it.
2. The blocks are so large that there
is great waste in cutting them up for
the retail trade.
3 The ice is so cold it freezes solid
in the storage houses and is very diffi
cult to get out.
4. As the winter has been so cold,
the summer will necessarily be very
hot, and the demand for ice very
great, so that it is doubtful if there
will be enougli to go uround.
5. The ice being extra thick, extra
cold, and extra quality all through, it
is only proper that an extra price
should be demanded.
6. Tlie price of ice never had any
relation to the cost of production, any
