TUSSLE FOR LAMPS. The Eighth Ward Recaptures Lamps From the Seventh Ward, - -~ And a Lively Howl Is Raised by Alderman San born. The Sanitation Company's Bill and the Park A venue Bridge And Other Matters Discussed By the Aldermanic Body. The most exciting contest that ha been witnessed in the council chamber for many months occurred over a very trivial thing, from a superficial point of view, at lust evening's session of the board of aldermen. Aid. Bielenuerg introduced a resolution removing to their former location the eight street lamps that were taken from the Eighth ward and placed in the Seventh last fall, it created the breez iest sort of a debate, and Aid. Sanborn was driven to all sorts of parliamentary subtleties. He pronounced it a piece of injustice, but it was shown that the Loard of public works had recommended Ihe change. Thereupon Mr. Sanborn said the board of public works had no legal power under the charter to remove lamps from one point to another, even if they found that the lamps are not needed where they are, and Aid. Gefifln at once took issue with this point of law. He declared that the Chatter specifically gives the board of public works the unquestioned right to remove the lamps. The resolution was adopted after a little further sparring, in which Aid. Gehan raised the point of order that there is no expense at tached to removing lamps, and that it therefore did not require a two-thirds vote to pa?s the measure. President Cullen accorded that the point was veil taken. Sanborn Insists. Later in the session Aid. Sanborn moved a reconsideration of the vote by which the resolution was pawed, and this failing. Afd. Sanborn moved a sus pension of the* rules, and this also was lost. Immediately he moved that the resolution be repealed, and he said the effect would be the same as if the ques tion had never been before the council. Inasmuch as only eight lamps were in volved, some of the aldermen thought it was much ado about nothing. There wore seven votes in the affirm ative and four in the negative, and the chair held that it would require a two thirds vote of the entire body, but Aid. Sanborn took the floor to argue that it only required a majority of the members present. He claimed that it •was an original motion and conse quently beyond the code of rules gov erning* the parliamentary rules of the board. Aid. Gehan claimed that the chair was right and asked for the corporation attorney's opinion. Mr. Lawler said it was a question of parliamentary law, and not legal law, but his judgment told him that the alderman from the Ninth ward was cor rect. Aid. Bott felt frank to confess he was not so much of a parliamentarian as the sweet singer from the Ninth ward, but lio held that a majority vote should suf iice. The chair held to his first decision, and thf*u Aid. Sanborn introduced a resolution directing the board of public worts to take no action in the premises, aud Aid. Mehidy changed his vote and tho measure missed. Again.just asthe moment of adjourn ment was reached, Aid. Sanborn once more moved to reconsider, and it pre vailed. Aid. Meiady changing his vote, and ttie resolution was defeated. A flood of protests were read from the electric light companies and their pa trons against the proposed removal of electric wires from Cedar street for the purpose of removing the old wooden building near Ninth "street. The state ment was made that the electric com panies would be damaged to the extent of $l,ooo,and whereas the building itself is not worth S.">oo. Hiler Horton ap peared as counsel for the Edison Elec tric Light company. He said it would necessitate A Complete Suspension of operation by the company, lie sug gested that the building can be removed across the vacant lot in the rear. He tlid not wish to discuss the legal aspsct, us the company is anxious to avoid all litigation with the municipality. Yet lie should apply for an injunction, •hould the council permit. Aid. Sullivan moved to refer to the tommittee on streets, but Aid. Cullen felt that it should be settled at once. Corporations holding valuable fran chises granted by the city, he argued, should not* be captious about some inconveniences when the interests ot a citizen is at stake who is about to erect a building at a cost of &;0,000 or more. The motion to refer was lost, and Aid. Sanborn explained that he could not vote for the resolution authorizing the wires removed because he feared that the electric companies can recover dam ages, and Corporation Attorney Lawler advised that this was true. Aid. Cullen stated that Mr. Botzet, the owner of the building, is willing to compromise the matters and will re move across the vacant lot if thecom panies will pay the additional cost. P. G. Reynolds, of the telephone com pany, explained the loss that would be sustained if the building is moved in the daytime. Aid. Cullen stated that the cost of re moving the building through the vacant lot is but $100, and he could not under stand why the companies interested * ill not pay it. The resolution was lost, and it was reconsidered later and referred to the committee on streets. The imbroglio that has been going on concerning the widening of East Sev enth street, between Rosabel and Broad way, was disposed of very handily. It came np upon the report of the commit tee on streets, given in yesterday's Globe, and this was accompanied by a resolution directing the board of public works to take no further action until the council gives further instructions. The whoie matter was referred back to the committee on streets and the alder man of the ward. Gates' Slick Work. Mayor Smith communicated an ex planation made by Building Inspector Starkey for bid "failure to make the usual annual report. Mr. Starkey claimed in his statement that the report should really have been made by his predecessor. He then proceeds to sdow that he assumed his present official duties Jan. 7 last, and he then found data for the report in the hands of Gates A. Johnson Jr., then clerk in the office. At Ins request he was permitted to take all documents relating to the work home with him on the plea that he wished to work evenings. Since then nothing has been seen of them, and Mr. Starkey finds that he cannot make the report without a vast amount of labor. The communication was placed on file. The St. Paul Sanitation company once more called attention, in a com munication, to the fact that the con tract for removal of dead animals made between the city and the sanitation company expired June 15. ISM, and that the company, at the instance of proper city officials, has continued to do the work at the contract price of $75 a mouth. "This is a servico «>f great importance to the city," says the communication, "and of great importance to the health of the city, and the city can ill afford to be with out such services." "- The company sug gusts that the council authorize the work to be dona under the old contract uvtil the council arranges for a new con tract. Later in the evening Aid. Sullivan introduced a resolution instructing the city clerk to notify the sanitation com pany not to collect dead animals here after under the old contract, and also to notify the company that the city will refuse to pay for any such work. Aid. Dobner 1 moved to refer to the special joint committee on azotine, ex plaining that he considered it urgent .that something definite be done at once to take care of the sanitary condition of the city. The resolution was so referred. Aid. Sullivan also directed attention to the necessity of doing . something definite and speedily. The hoard of aldermen has been 'passing the bills upon the statement that the work has actually been performed, but the as sembly has refused to sign any of the bills. The whole matter went to the special committee on azotine. '■'- The Hotel Runners. ' > The jobbers' union of the . city pre sented a Detition askingthatthelicenses of the hotel runners who solicit busi ness at the corner of Sibley and Third streets be canceled, or that they be re moved from that locality. The commu nication explained that the runners are a grievous source of annoyance to the jobbers of the city. The matter was referred to tke committee on licenses. Aid. Gehan presentea a resolution in structing the corporation attorney to take legal proceedings to compel the Manitoba and Great Northern roads to construct a bridge where the tracks cross Park avenue. Aid. Sanborn stated that it was only a threat to some of the largest interests in the city. He hoped the resolution would not pass, because it would pos sibly have the effect to dfive Mr. Hill out of the city. The alderman main tained, furthermore, that the citizens along Park avenue do not favor the bridge. Aid. Gehan thought differently. He stated most emphatically that the citi zens do want the improvement, and cited the fact in substantiation of his position that there is a large petition now before the council praying for the bridge. All of Park avenue is in the Ninth ward. The resolution was referred to the committee on streets, of which Aid. Gehan is chairman. This action was taken upon the motipD of Aid. Dobner, who was not sufficiently familiar with the question to vote with satisfaction of his own mind. The pro'est of the Como avenue prop erty owners against the assessments made against their property for trees set out along Como avenue was referred to the committee on streets. BWB Again Alter Loivry. The Eighth Ward Citizens' union re quested that the council take action to compel the street car company to stop all cars at all crossings- to accommodate passengers between Dale street and Lexington avenue. Referred to the committee on streets. The general raanaeer of the Omaha road communicated that the road has received the request of the council in the matter, aud tfiat the road will straightway have plans prepared for the Payne avenue bridge over the tracks of the company. The letter was referred to the committee on streets. The new plans submitted by the city engineer for the Eighth street bridge were adopted upon the motion of Aid. Gehan. The ordinance authorizing the St. Paul Showcase company to occupy a portion of the Sixth ward levee for manufacturing purposes was referred to the committee on streets, and a like course was taken with an ordinance giving similar rights to the St. Paul Hoop Manufacturing compauy. ... -..,... Aid. Conley presented an ordinance to further regulate the carrying of passengers for hire by hackmen. Ac companying;, the . same was a petition signed by the licensed hackmen.; and the ordinance wos givvn a" fir?t reading 1 and then referred to the committee on .licenses. The ordinance is an innova tion. It compels the payment of all claims for hack hire by persons engag ing a hack, making default a misde meanor, and fixing the penalty, upon conviction, a fine of not less than $10 nor more than $25, or imprisonment in the workhouse for a period of not less than ten days nor more than thirty days. . An ordinance giving the Omaha road the rieht to occupy Minnesota street south of Second street, was referred to the committee on streets. The contract between the city and the Milwaukee Railroad company pro viding for a double-track iron bridge along the right of way of the company and across Pleasant avenue, was ap proved. The assembly file appropriatings6,7lo for the purpose of paving East Third street was passed. The tile was accom panied by a written opinion by the corporation attorney explainingthat the previous action of the council was lllegal.becausethat body had no right to divert moneys from one fund to any other. The new resolution, he stated, is in regular form, and complies with charter provision. Corporation Attorney Lawler recom mended that the council refuse to re turn the license fees to employment agents, as asked by the latter some time ago. •; ' Write or wire Frank I.

THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: WJL'JJiNJibJJAr JMORNIXG, APBIL 6. 1892. WHALENJRRESTED, The Alleged Marderer Be lieved to Be in the City Lock-Up. Mysterious Proceedings That Surround the Whole Case. World's Fair Commissioners Talk Building to Archi tects. Wheat Growers Given Leave to Sum Up the Evi dence. Charles Whalen. the man who is ac cused of murderiug Gerrald'Spaulding, at Portage, Wis., Saturday morning, is behind lock and key at the central police station. At least a man named Whaleii answering the de scription of the murderer was arrested at an early hour yesterday morning by St. Paul detectives, and was placed by them in a private cell separated from the ones in common use and where none but the officers could have access to him. The statement was mado in; a vague way last evening that the man arrested was not the mur derer but his brother, who knows where the man wanted can be found. This fact seems improbable for many rea sons, as Whalen was not known to have a brother in this locality, and only came to St. Paul 1 with a theatrical company a few weeks ago. The air of mystery and the deep silence maintained by the police over the affair made it impossible to learn from them any particulars, and it is only surmised that the man who paced the floor of his iron cell last night is any other than the suspected murderer of Gerrald Spauld in,'. The father of the murdered boy was 'closeted for a long time with the officers last evening and had an interview with the man who in the eyes of the world stands charged with having murdered his son. It was learned from a positive source that whatever the 'prisoner's identity might be, the real Charles Whalen's arrest would be made known today, and before many hours have passed he will be on his - way to Portage to answer for a terrible crime. The deed was dis covered much sooner than the murderer had anticipated, and it was not found difficult work to finer the route he had taken from the scene of his bloody work. AH the skill of the police in this and other cities was turned into the search for the man who had carefully planned and carried out the murder of his friend. He was seen to board a freight train coming toward St. Paul. He came to St. Paul, and it required but a short time for the St. Paul de tectives to locate him in this city. It is said his hiding place was a box car in the West side railroad yards. Another story is that he was concealed iv • a shanty in that por tion of the city from where he was taken yesterday. The fact that the important" capture was not at once' made public by the police is explained by the mere statement that it is not customary with the authorities in any city to give out cases of the kind until th« euilt of the party has been estab lished as far as possible by his own actions. TALKED WITH ARCHITECTS. Columbian Commissioners Go ■ ;'^ Over Their Plans. ' . . The world's fair cotnmissioners held a meeting in the executive chamber of the state capitol all day yesterday. With the commissioners also met about twenty architects.whowere called there to confer with the commissioners rela tive to the construction ot a Minnesota building at the world's fair. It was finally agreed that a two-story building comprising an area of 12,000 square feet, and costing not to exceed $25,000,' be erected. The main construction is to be of wood, and in harmony with the general world's fair building in Chicago. The interior is to be constructed of Minnesota material so far as possible. The exterior is to be covered with staff or stucco. The lower floor is to be used as an exposition hall, while the second floor will be fitted up for the conveni ence of Minnesota visitors, -, hav ing ladies' and gentlemen's apart ments, toilet rooms ' and clos ets, a postoffice, a bureau of information, a telegraph office ■* and sleeping apartments for the help. The women's auxiliary is also to have head quarters in- the building, and suitable apartments provided for that body. The architects are to have their plans prepared ready for submission at noon Monday, May 2, at which time the com mission will meet and make a selection. The architects present and allowed to enter the competition were C. C.Yost,E. Burlington, VV. C. Whitney, W. H. Den nis, Minneapolis; Haas & Garlach, St. Paul and Mankato, and C. H. Johnston, C. Gilbert, H. R. P. Hamilton, A. P. Knight, J. W. Stevens. J. K. Taylor, Buckner & Johnson, Millard & Joy, A. P. Gautrer, Walter Jfe. Herman ' Kretz & Co., Griges & Stem, C. Reed Dewey, Onieyer & Thori aud Albert Zschorke, of St. Paul. The following address to the/people regarding the world's fair fund was formulated and adopted before the com mission adjourned: To the People of Minnesota: The work inaugurated some / months ago by the board of world's fair managers of Minnesota to se cure by contribution the sum of 5100,000 to supplement the $5:>,000 : appropriated by the state legislature, with which to make a dis play of the natural an(i industrial products of this state at the Columbian Exposition, commensurate with the high positiou which it occupies in the sisterhood of states, has met with a response truly gratifying to this board, and qnite in keeping with the dis tinctive 'characteristics- which have ever guided our citizens in matters of public in terest. When this board issued its address in Sep tember last it was firmly of the opinion that the appeal for funds would commend itseif to every citizen who had an interest and wel fare in this state, and a pride in seeing its in terests early represented at Chicago. In this it was not mistaken.: While all of the coun ties have not. as yet, responded with their quotas, a sufficient number has done s>o to . warrant the belief that • none will be . found wanting when the superintendent shall have completed his visitation; and while a ma jority have raised the ' full ■ amounts alloted to them, there are ; a- few where only a portion of the quota has been pledged. It-is importaut that iv such counties where the latter condition ex ists steps be immediately taken to finish the work, as ihe time is near at hand wheu this board will be obliged to call for funds, and it must have at least 75 per cent of the counties . represented with full quotas before such call will be made. HZ In the few remaining counties which have not been visited by the superintendent, if a few puDlic-spirited gentlemen would under take to raise the money apportioned | to them : they would greatly ; facilitate tue work, aud ■ at ' the - same "tim«- confer .a. -favor i which -: would be appreciated. Plans ' tor a state building ;-; to ..' be ' erected : upon ■ the .•- exposition grounds • will be ready May 2 next, and it is "hoped that the ; full quota of funds may be pledged .by . the . : close of this mouth, so "as not to retard : im-; mediate work, and to permit of activity iv ariaimiusfor a complete exhibit' of all our state's interests. v>SSSH9BVQK(BkCBV The growing interest manifested through out this and other, countries ;in the : coming ; position leaves no room tor I doubt that it will be the greatest event iv the history -of ■ the world; an event which will mam the progress of civilization "to. an extent' little comprehended at. this time, and one .which will ;-; afford \. an • educational [. insight into : the ; magnitude ' and > grandeur of all couu-' --tries immeasurably valuable to the people universally. It will 'be the ' highest aim of this board ■■ to j represent ; Minnesota iat the ' world's fair in such a manner as shall reflect i \ the greatest possible credit upon ' the ; intelli gence of our people,' the magnificence of our, resource? and the unexcelled advantages we ; offer to homeseukers aud ' the investors oi capital, and to this end thehearty co-opera tion of all good citizens is solicited:;;'' -V-m? ■ D.

NO REPORT READY ':■?& — — - — . . / I' -•-' *'. ■ t-^Jc In the Wheat Case— Grain Growei'3 Allowed to -Prepare: ''a': ■ Summary. '■-•■■' it fri The legislative wheat investigating' committee was in session all of yester day afternoon considering,, the report^ prepared by Assistant Attorney General Childs, with a view to being adopted in part or in whole by the commission, but the entrance into the committee room Lawyer W.-.W. Erwin, Gen. Banett and one or two other gentlemen represent- 1 ing the Grain " Growers' association ' shortly after 3 o'clock checked the com^. mittee in its labors. Mr. Erwin and Geii. i Barrett asked the committee to allow them to make an oral argument on the summary prepared by ■■;■ Mr. Childs, but this the committee refused to do, coup ling with the refusal, the proviso that the representatives of the Grain Grow ers' association would be given until this afternoon to prepare and submit an 1 argument on Mr. Child's summary or prepare and submit a summary of the entire investigation as viewed by them. The gentlemen retired without stating what they would do. '-■'; ' • ?'■ (Train Inspector Clausen was called before the committee and asked to : for mulate a section relative to requiring all elevator, companies to weigh and make public the grain in each elevator at the opening and close of business each day, aud also to make monthly or quarterly reports. Mr. Clausen promised to comply with the request. - Mr. Child's report, as submitted to the committee, and roughly guessed at by the various ! newspapers will be so materially changed before the commit tee completes its labors that any at tempt to publish it as the committee's report would be folly. The committee itself refuses to make it public, and claim that alleged published,summaries of it are fictitious. The report of the committee will be made to the governor some time during the present week. -;• OF COURSE THEY ARE SOEEL Republicans Disgruntled Over the f Exact Letter of the Law. . ; ; ; The Republican members of the coun cil, as well as the Republican city com mittee, are very much disgruntled be cause the Democrats were : too wily to be caught in the trap that had been so cuuniugly laid for them. The special meeting of the council that selected the judges to serve at the polls for the com ing election was called at the instance of the Republican members. They had planned to have two Republican judges in a great many of the election districts under the adroit subterfuge that the second Republican elected in each in stance is a Prohibitionist. The Demo crats, however, followed : a literal construction of the law. The. party casting the largest : vote is entitled to choose the judge, the second to be named by tie party casting the second . largest vot£, 1 and the third judge to bo chosen by the. ; third political party in point of the number of votes polled at the last geij- 1 cral election. The canvass of : tbeelec^ tion returns reveals the fact that the ■ Farmers' Alliance party polled the thlrU highest vote, and that party is surely s entitled to precedence over the ProhlM- 1 tion party. But the Republicans are l very sore because the Alliance men got in, and they are heaping the bitterest 1 sort of anathemas upon the heads of tite Democratic councilmen. They detvj^ that the Alliance men are Alliance men! at all, but the fact is" they werfe' chosen by ' the Alliance : comriiil-' '. tee, and "it ■' would 1 :be w a 1 '? mighty •' strange thing • for the - ' -party to do to go outside their own ranks officers that 1 the law gives • them the right to appoint. Moreover, to shtnv the unfairness of the criticisms of the Republicans, an examination of the lists presented by the Republicans and the Prohibitionists show that the Pro-" hibitiouists recommended the very men that had been ! , presented at a former meeting. of the council by the Republi can city committee for a second set of judges. ' : To be-more explicit, the Re publican city committee presented tne names of two-Republican ■ judges for each election district in the city. Aft erwards the so-called Prohibition list contained a large liumber of the same names that had been recommended as Republicans good and true. - This is a true statement of facts. Buckeye Iron Co.

To Be Continued Hereafter Simply for Catarrhal Troubles — Why Dps. Copeland and Hunt Found It Impossible to Continue the Rate for All Diseases. The period during which Drs. Cope -1 land and Hunt offered to treat all pa " tieuts and all diseases at the uniform •rate of. §5 a month expired April Ist. -Theevidencethatthepublicappreciated the value of the offer and the purpose for which it was made lies in the most wonderful response which was made to it. During the last ten days iv Marcn nearly five hundred pa ■ tients iv St. Paul alone took advantage of it. ■Tne strength of the doctors and their assist ants and the resources of their laboratories and offices were taxed to the utmost to ac commodate the crowds of old as well as new patienta. Doctors Copelaud and Hunt would gladly maintain the rate to all patients and for all diseases for a longer time if it could possibly be done. It would simply be a physical impossibility for them to personally attend to the number of patient 3 responding. There are many who have called and writ ten expressing their desire to take advantage of the £> rate, but complaining that they cau not conveniently bc-giu the treatment be fore the - r )th or 10th of April. For the ac commodation of these, aud that no partiality may be shown— that all may have the same fair opportunity — Drs. Copeland and Hunt have "decided that they will, until May Ist. treat catarrh and kindred troubles at the rate of 55 a month. For other diseases their charges will be low and nuiform.aud in pro portion to the actual wholesale cost of medi cines required to successfully treat and cure the diseases iv which they are indicated. WAS NOT CONSUMPTION But the Catarrhal Disease Which Followed an Attack of the Grip. The following statement from Mr. James Yacklosse. of 464 Wabasha street, a fresco painter engaged with Bazille & Partridge. 4GB Jackson street, is most interesting in that it illustrates so plainly and forcibly the fact that la grippe invariably leaves in its wake a more of less severe catarrhal condition, which, though it may seem to lie dor mant and undisturbingfor a time, needs only a slight aggravation— a simple cold — to arouse it in all its fury. Mr. Yack losse says: '•Two years ago this winter I had an attack of the grip, which, as I thought, I fully recovered from. Eight months afterwards I went to Duluth, where I caught a bad cold. Well, ever since that time I have had one continual struggle with catarrh— not so bad ac first, but gradually and steadily more severe until my whole system was in volved. JAMES YACKLOSSE, 4GI WABASIIA STISEET. "Almost the first thing a bad cough at tacked me, which nothing seemed able to affect or relieve me of. Mv bead and nose stopped up. Matter dropped back into my throat and I hawked and raised phlegm all the time. My eyes got weak and watery. A little over a year ago the trouble took another start* and went down towards my lungs. Sharp, cutting uains would shoot across my chest. My breathing passage became almost closed up. I could only take short, quick breaths, which was hard and difficult, and would cause a wheezing, rat tling sound in my chest. The least sudden exertion would nearly overcome me. My cougfc got worse and would mnke my lungs raw and sore. It all worked on me so stead ily I believed I HAD CONSUMPTION. "Food soured on my stomach and caused belching and rifting of gas. My energy and ambition were gone. I was worn out all over. When I would sit down my joints wonld get stiff and sore, and it was a pain ful effort for me to get up again. •'I went to doctors who gave me prescrip tions, but the medicine had no effect what ever, uo more than if I hadn't taken it at all. I got discouraged and just anout gave up hope of ever being cured. Then I begau reading the statements of different St. Paul people who. suffering much as I was, had been relieved of their trouble by Drs. Cope land and Hunt, and in every instance recom mending them in warm words. Well, I am one of those St. Paul people now, and happy over it. too. I weut to Drs. Copeland and Hunt and am as fresh and bright and easy as ever. Their treatmeut aud medicines ware mild and pleasant to take, but just what was needed to restore me to health. lam sincere in recommending them to any one suffering as I did." THERE WAS NO DISTRESS. Mr. John Wardenburg, the Well Known Contractor and Painter, Tells His Experience. "I have had catarrh for eighteen or twenty years," said Mr. Wardenburg, the well known painter and contractor, residing at No. 222 East Seventh street. Room 153. "But since I h=:d the grip a year ago find a repeated at tack last winter, I have suffered severely and 'continually. The disease affected my whole system. I was irritable and despondent. Lost all energy and ambition to think or act. Trifling calls for exertion seemed like the ■heaviest burden. "I had terrible drawing pains in the head— buzzing and ringing In the ears. My nose was stopped up I had n • . - pains in the chest and back, a hacking cough, heart ymlnitation, a continual dropping iii the throat and a sick ened stomach. In fact, I can hardly enumer ate the varied symp toms. I believe, as I have often told my wife, that had it not been for my unusually heavy aud robust con -8 itu'.ion I could not nave lived through it nil. •'But as soon as I re vived Drs.

There has john wAiiuESßi'Di. been a wonderful im provement in my condition. lam feeling well and vigorous, many of the symptoms have disappeared and others are going. Their treatment is mid and pleasant, does not oc casion a particle of distress or autioyaDce, but it is very thorough, aud I rdb ready and glad of the opportunity to recommend it." TORTURE AND FAILURE Was What She Met With From Physicians Whom She Con sulted in the Vain Hope of Finding Relief. "Yes, 1 have hail a good deal of ex perience in trying to get .cured of severe catatrhal trouble." said Mr*. D. I. Schrokenstein, of 327 St. Clair street, whose husband is an electrician with the St. Paul City Railway company. "I had been to a number of doctors and just simply got worse and worse all the time. I don't wonder at it so much now, though, tor some of them treated my head and throat with applications and BFBATB THAT MADE ME BCFFER TERRIBLY WHEN THEY USBD THEM AND WHICH FRE QUENTLY BROUGHT OS PROFUSE BLEEDINO FROM THE KOSE AND SPELLS OF CHOKING THAT almost ktlled mb. The treatment was far worse than the disease, aud instead of help ing me only made nic worse. My head and throat got into a fearful condition, the pas sages became dry and chapped — my throat was so sore aud so swolleu--at times almost closed— that I could not speak— could not articulate a sound. Spells of headache and dizziness would come over me. when every thing would turn black before my eyes and I would stasrger aud almost tall. '"As I grew worse the trouble extended far ther down until my husband thought my Umi WERE AFFECTED— THAT IT WAS LEAD ING into consumption. 1 began to bejieveso. too. I had a bad couah. My breathing was short aud quick. There was a sore, tight feeling in my lungs and sharp, cutting paius that would shoot through under ray shoulder blades. My appetite was very irregular: everything I ate seemed to lodge just before it would reach my stomach, and cause a full, tight, smothered feeliug around my lungs and heart. 1 had frequent spells of heart fluttering that would leave me week and ex hausted. My sleep was Droken by dreadful dreams, and I was just as tired in the morn ing as at uight, if uot more so. I lost flesh MRS. D. F.

"This was my condition and experience," concluded Airs. Sehrokensteiu, "'up to a com paratively short time ago, when I was in duced to go to Ors. Copeiaud and Hunt.

In the Case of Mr. Donegan the Catarrhal Process Extended to the Throat, Ears, Bronchial Tubes and Stomach. Mr. James C. Donovan, residing corner Ex change aud Wabasba streets, opposite the capitol, employed with the Boak Fish com pany, 211 East Third street, says. ".My troubles began ten years ago with a cold in tne bead, grew gradually worse until the catarrhal process extended to my throat, my ears, bronchial tubes aud stomach, and [ was so weakeued thai I was forced to seek, p "~'ii "Ml nd. '* he dropping of mucus, with the conse quent hawking and spitting, aunoyed me constantly. Especially in the morning I would strninand gag, raising lnrte chunks of dis gusting matter, aud then, of course, could eat no breakfast. My throat was sore aud dry. and pained me to swallow: there was a dull, throbbing ache back of my ears, and tiie rurnblinsr. roariti?--,rAMSsc.-»OHBaAK.' noises made my hearing dull and imperfect. ■ "Severe sharp . pains would start iv tbe lower part of my stomnch, and shoot through to my back. I suffered a great deal wirb a bearing dowu, weakeuine actao in .tbe small of my back. Any undue excitement, like. running up stairs, would set my heart flutter ins at an alarming rate. Night sweats came on. and 1 ran down in flesh and strength taster than ever. Sleep did me no good; I was tired ana worn out. and had no ambi tion to move when morning came I would have to get up. "Uu Jer Drs.Ccpeland and Hunt's treatment ('which, by tbe way. was so mild aud sooth ing a child could use it without trouble or discomfort) I have steadily improved from the start. Now the dropping has almost en tirely ceased, hawkiug and spitting is cone, my appetite is good now aud I eat and digest ; all proper . food without suffering. I feel fresh , and vigorous. It's no longer such a disagreeable task for me to get up in the morning and go to work. I k»ow that I owe the great change to tbe Intelligent, careful and scientific treatment I received from Drs. Copeland and Hunt, and I heartily recom mend them." BESB $5 A MONTH. CATARRH AND KINDRED DISEASES TREATED AT THE UNIFORM RATE OF 85 A MONTH UNTIL MAY IST. MEDI CINES FREE.
