ioorrmig' ihe council by eh. Acquisition of Fresh Ma terial. Calhoua School Tern Up by the Strang-e Course of the Principal. Carnival matters go merrily on, new tames appearing on the list of famous entries every day. A letter from S. P. Jones and Mr. Morrison, the committee gent East to secure athletes for the vari dus events, was received yesterday. They say that the Cornell-Pennsylvania race was literally snatched from Syra cuse, aud that the papers of that city Lad already announced the race to come off in that place. Both the committees signed the agreement subject to the ap proval of the Carnival association. The Rff air is receiving much comment from Eastern college men, who look upon it :;s quite a radical break in the conven tional monotony of college custom. The criticism is commendatory. The favor able attitude of ['resident Schuiman, of - Cornell, and Mr. Morrison's influence with Woodruff, the coacuer for Pennsyl vania, had much to do with landing the prize. The crews will probably bring two boats each. Each crew will bring the eight men, two substitutes, a coach, cox swain, commodore of navy, and possibly a cook or trainer. They insist that the boats of the two crews shall not be in the same car. If possible, also, it is de- Sired that no boats except those for the press ana reteree be allowed to follow the race. Both crews are havine alumi num shells made in Philadelphia. If they prove satisfactory on trial the race will by made in them, the first in the history of boat racing. If not up to ex pectations paper boats will be used. Mr. Jones says of his visit to tne boat house of Gallanough on the Schuylkill: "I saw one of these boats now in proc ess of building, and they look to me to be the com ill r boat. Gallanough claims great things for them in single*, and a speed of ten seconds to the mile over cedar or paper boats." Jones and Morrison go to Boston from New York. The carnival association has formed a combine with various business organiz ations in the city for advertising pur poses. The committee representing these bodies met yesterday at carnival headquarters to consider advertising schemes. An official programme was adopted, of which 100.000 are to be printed. This was authorized by tne board, so that the business men would give their advertising without hesita tion. Col. C. W. Johnson will have charge of this. A folder was also adopt ted, to be inserted by business men in their correspondence. Tne advertising committee is constituted as follows: 1. C. Seeley. chairman, representing the real estate board; F. 11. Forbes, Busi ness union; W. W. Waite, board of trade; W. Dean. Jobbers' union; W. G. Byron, exposition; C. S. Brackett and C. W. Johnson, carnival associa tion. J. W. Nash. of the carnival committee, leaves toniirht for Chicago to look after the Masonic hotel enterprise in which he is interested for the world's fair, and will also keep his eye open for carnival hints and attractions. The carnival committee is to meet Wednes day evening. J. ('. Harper, who secured T. P. Con ner!, the sprinter, for the summer carni val of sports, wrote asking him what other champions he could bring with him. Mr. Harper received a reply yes terday morning in which Conueff states that he could bring a brilliant list. Among those named are J. S. Mitchell, the champion hammer and weiirht thrower of the world; G. M. Sullivan, all-round champion of America; F. M. Sweeney, champion high jumper and holder of the world's record; F. C. Puiler, champion hurler of America and bolder of the record; E. W. Golf, cham pion broad jumper ol America. The thousand voices of the carnival chorus will begin to be heard very soon. Col. Charles \V. Johnson has issued the first call for a meeting of ail who wish to join at me Carnival association rooms in the basement of the New York Life building Wednesday evening. J. W. Nash, of the carnival commit tee, left last night for Chicago to look after the Masonic hotel enterprise in which he is interested, for the world's lair, aud will also keep his eye open for carnival hints and attractions. William W. Allslon. manager of the lacrosse team of the athletic club of the Schuylkill navy, which holds the cham pionship of the United States and claims to be the best lacrosse team in the country, has written to the carnival association. He says his attention was called to the carnival by the papers, and he wants to have his team compete in the lacrosse contests of the Minneapolis carnival. The City Amateur Base Ball league, composed of four strong teams, has written the Carnival association asking to have the interests of amateur baso ball looked out for. They want their teams to have the privilege of making a showing. SEARCHED THK GIRLS. A Proceeding at Calhoun School That Raised a Kow. An infraction ot the constitutional riiiiit to be exempt from unreasonable searches and sacredness of the person lias stirred up a large-sized commotion in tlio Calhoun school. It is said that the principal of the school, Miss .Sherwood, has been subjecting the girls in the highest room to the in dignity of disrobing in order that she initriit search them. Complaints have been lodged with the boara of educa tion, and as a result that body is having an executive session to consider the matter this afternoon. The girls in question are from thirteen to seventeen years of age, and are about thirty in number. Last Thursday one of the youngest girls came to Miss Sherwood with the statement she had lost a $5 bill. Just before school closed for the day the principal went to the room and requested all of the young ladies in it to remain. After the school had been dismissed the principal told the story of the lost bill, and requested any one in the room having any knowledge of it to indicate it to her. All in the room expressed ienorauce of the matter, and the principal proceeded to more drastic measures. She took each scholar into an ante-room and subjected her to a most rigid searching. Many were re quired to loosen their clothing. Many of the young ladies report that they The Superior MEDICINE for all forms of blood disease, Sarsaparitia the health restorer, and health maintainer. Cures Others will cure you. .ere required to lake off their outer ariiients aud shoes. Others report an nvestigatlon equally as distasteful and evere. Yet, with all this investigation, lie money was rot found— and it has .ot yet been discovered. The patrons of the school are very In dignant over the matter, and the board of education will investigate the course of the principal. Miss Sherwood ex pressed surprise at being taken to task ibout the searching, and admitted tiiat ■ihe had done so, but justified her course Ijy saving she had treated all the girls .1 like. Sue took all the girls into a room when school was dismissed and re quired them to remove their shoes, loo?en their waists and skirts, one at a time, an.l made the search. HOURS IX AND OUT. Ihe New Transfer System Takes Kffect. Tlio new transfer ordinance of the Twin City Hapid Transit company went into effect yesterday, and all day a throng of people put to severe test the new transfer depot at No. 10'J Hennepin avenue. The Beemiug red tape of the thing conies to light when, to take an example, one descends from a Ni col let avenue car with the intention of trans ■ f erring to a Hennepih, to lind the Ilen nepin just within reach, and yet be obliged to yet a time-punched ticket of admission to tret in at one <loor.and then have to secure another to get out the other entrance to tttke the Heunepiu car. The force of men in charge of the depot number nine, four for transfers, two receivers, and two stampers and a starter. The starter is stationed on a lookout and calls off the names of the cars as each approaches, and the direc tion ill which they are bound. The depot is roomy a. id has seals placed about, but it was noticeable yesterday that few cnose to sit. It is, however, difficult to see just how the enormous lake, crowds of the coming season are to be handled without inconvenience and much plundering. STKIFK IS HOT Over the Coining Action of Cotin- cil With the Firemen. The secret meeting of the council next Wednesday evening is causing a great deal of talk and surmise among public officials. Parts of the testi mony offered were stolen by some (.ne supposed to be in leatrue with the thieving firemen. The U>ss was easily repaired, however, as the stenographer's notej the containing tes timony remain intact. Aid. Gray grew slightly warm wheu asked if the state ment in the Journal to the effect that the attack on Itunge was prompted by Catholics was true: "Out of five members of the smelling committee," he says, "three are mem bers ot the Masons", in which Mr. Itunge is also a member. 1 am an Episcopalian, and so is Mr. Kunge. There is, one Catholic on the committee, and It is crediting him with too much influence to say that he has been leading us where we did not want to go." The members of the committee have been threatened with political death and all manner of dire things during tho investigation, and are heartily glad that their labors are over. It is not regarded as probable that the committee will re cede from its position regarding the tes timony, but will refuse to present it to the council, as ordered. It is even hinted that it has been destroyed. CLUB HOUBK IMPERILED By Wind and Water at Lake 3liu netonka. A report was current yesterday after noon that the high water at Lake Min netonka had washed away the founda tions of the Minnetonka Yacht club house and had seat the structure adrift in St. Louis bay. Investigation proved that the rumor was untrue and that the club house was still standinir.althoiiirh in great danger from the wind and the waves. For the past few weeks the water lias been rapidly encroaching upon the little island on which the club house is located until it has buried beneath its waves the whole side ot the island which fronts the big lake. Old inhab itants say that with things in the pres ent condition a stiff wind from the north west driving down the long sweep of the big lake would probably tear the club house loose from its moorings and set it aarilt. Mr. Austin, of Sunimerville, says that the water at Minnetonka has never been so high since 1880. The waves, he says, are tearing away at the the loose sand and snivel island which forms the foundation of the club house, and are sure, as the water keeps on rising every day, to eventually under mine the structure. The island which forms the site of the club house is chiefly of artificial formation. Aside from the intrinsic value and beauty of the club house, there is much depending upon it for the success of this summer's carnival of sports. The high water is doing much other damage about the lake. At Huminerville one of Mr. Austin's cottages, known as the Tenney cottage, which lias a low lawn sloping down to the shore, is in danger. The shore line has been liven with stone work, but the water has en croached over this, and Mr. Austin has arranged plank rip-rapping, which, he believes, will break the force of the water and prevent further damage. C. M. Loring thinks the dam should be cut down to the proper level of the lake, thus letting out the surplus water. CAUGHT IN COURT. The first of six criminal cases brought before t lie district court yesterday ruornin? was that of Frank llazelton for seduction. Mr. Nye arose at the call and stated that, after a conference with the trial judge on the matter, he was of the opinion that it would be bad policy to have a second trial of the case, considering the expense to the county. Theyouue 1 man will be free to do as he lists from this time on, as far as the accusation is concerned. Nils Gjelgcrseu was arraigned, indict ed for adultery with Kan Olson, wife of Nils Olson, July 10 of last year. He pieaded not guilty. Bail was fixed at ?COO, and in default of b.ul he was re manded to await trial. The state moved for sentence in the case of William Blackwell, the colored man who pleaded guilty and finally had a trial by the order of the court for the reason lie pretended that his attorney had urged him to plead guilty, lie was given a reformatory sentence. The public will remember the action brought some time ago by Mrs. Sarah Farr'against FivdKolfend, in which she claimed that he had managed to secure au undue inlluence over her, and while in that condition she transferred to him her property. The action was tried, and tiie jury returned a verdict in favor of defendant. It now transpires that in a few days an argument for a new trial will be madei in which the claim will be made that the verdict of the jury was contradictory. When tlie judge gave the case to the jury he sub mitted two questions for that body to answer. The tirst was as to whether or not Mrs. Farr was under the influence of Koffend. and that was answered in the allirmative. The second question was whether or not Roifend had used that influence over her, and had not given consideration for the property transferred. This was answered in the negative. The attorneys claim that ttie two answers could not be possible, as they were against each other. The case created quite a sensation at the time it was tried.

A Great Non-Partisan Testi monial Tendered to Judge Lochren. Hot Shot at the Park Board Over Minnehaha Boule vard. The blue and the gray met in frater nal greeting at Morgan Post hall, G, A. R., last night, to do honor to Judge William Lochren, the newly appointed commissioner of pensions. The testi monial was under the auspices of the Umon Veterans' League.but it was In no sense a partisan gathering, as the sol diers who fouifill in both armies of the war were invited to be present, and they turned out in large numbers. At the hour set for the meeting every" scat in the big hall was taken, and the scene presented was both animated and inspiring, the griz zled veterans of both sides commingling in friendly unison. The hall was taste fully decorated with the national colors, a big cannon decorated with Hags occu- Dying a position in front of the rostrum. On the speakers' stand were seated Gov. Nelson, Judge Lochren, lion. John P. Rea. Judice Collins and others. The meeting was called to order by Frank J. Mead, the chairman, who ex plained the occasion of the leathering, and who paid a high compliment to the guest of the evening, Hon. William Lochren, whom he then introduced in befitting language. In responding, Judge Lochren said he felt like blushing at the hitrh compli ments received at the hands of the chairman. Gov. Nelson was then introduced, and he was received with applause. He said he was prosent to pay his aespects to Comrade Lochren, than whom there vus none more worthy. Judge Lochren, he said, had occupied high positions in both civic and military lite. Chairman Mead then explained how Judge Lochren's name at first reached the ear of the piesident, which was through a communication sent by Judge Rea, svho recommended him as the best equipped man for the position. Judte John T. Rea was the next speaker. He dwelt upon the splendid military career ot Judge Lochreu, and of the splendid generalship shown in the twenty-live great battles of the war. as compared with the contests of Europe. He was glad to see the comrades of both sides meet in friendly unison, and that after twenty-eight years the envy and passion of the Rebellion had passed away,and that ihe boys of North Carolina aud Minuesota could once more meet and mingle on the same plaue. Judge L. W. Collins, of the supreme court, was then introduced, and said he was present to testify his appreciation of the appointment of Judge Loch ren, who had been honored before many times, but at last had been selected to fill one of the most important places in the nation. He therefore congratulated President Cleve land on securing so splendid a man. So far as Judge Lochr.m is concerned, we can safely say that he will do the de partment justice, and that his appoint ment meets with almost universal ap- probation. , Jacob Mertz here regaled the audience with a couple of war stories that were highly apureciated. Ex-Mayor Winston was introduced by Mr. Mead, who said the chasm had been spanned. Mr. Winston said as one who had belonged to the lost cause, he was glad to do honor to Juuee Loch ren. No executive had been moie in spired than was Mr. Cleveland when he selected Judge Lochran. Other speakers were Judge Nelson, 0. C. Merrlman and Dr. J. ii. Murphy. A HOI PROTEST Against tho Assessment for Mm nehaha Boulevard. Lawyer Morres P. Brewer threw some hot shot into the midst of the park com missioners at the meeting yesterday. lie was on hand to speak of a petition which protested against the board's assessment in the Twelfth ward for the Minueliaha boulevard, and he waxed emphatic, if not eloquent. He scored the board for assessing the cost of Minnehaha parkway in a manner he regarded as ueddedly unfair. The pe tition claims thai the assessment was made in a careless way, and Layner Brewer championed the petition, lie aiorsed the commissioners, and they appointed a special committee of five of the best members of tho board to handle the petition and investigate its pointed statements. The chief statement of the protesting portion of the petition is that the park buard, in securing the land for the Minnehaha boulevard in the Twelfth ward, got so many donations of land that only a little- over ?4,U00 was act ually paid out. 4nd yet the nominal cost of the park was placed at $02,501, and of this nearly $35,000 was assessed on adjacent property that was not exempt because its owners had not donated. The total cost, the pro test states, was reached by inflated prices named in the deeds to the park board, and had the whole amount of land needed been conuemned it would not have cost more than 525,000. Those who gave were exempt from assess ment to the extent of the valne of their gift, and right theie arose another inducement to make the price or value named in the deed as big as possible. The adjacent non-exempt property has to bear a $35, --000 burden, and the owners are the pro testers. The report of the assessors is on tile iv court, and the petition asks to have proceedings abandoned before the report is confirmed. They want the parkway, but they do not want to pay 5r.4,00!) for what "cost the park board about 84,000. The petition and protest have raised the question of the justice of assessing for park purposes the value of land so cured, whether by gift or not. There are tliose who think that, in the light of the report of the special committee on the protest, the board will discontinue the practsce. The superintendent was authorized to make such improvements in Spring Luke park as he deemed necessary, and Mr. Lowry will be asked to advance £3,000 of the money he promised to give for the improvement of the park. The signers of the protesting petition included J. K. Beery, Charles H. Gil man, E. S. Prince, S. A. Stockwell, W. B. Boardman. K. (X Foster, R. C. Ilay wood, J. P. Nichols and D. F. Ait ken.

M. \\ ilcox for that position by Supt Lewis. Mr. Wilcox was acceptable to the board, and his appointment was confirmed, thus Knocking out Shaver and giving the county an assistant superintendent once more.

Weeks' liabilities are said to be nearly hhlf a million dollars. Warner Van Nordeu, president of the Bank of North America, was elected president of the company, and S. F. Kilner treasurer and secretary. The deposition of Mr. | Weeks is the result of aii investigation j of his administration of the affairs of the company. Mr. Welling, the as signee, has given out the following statement: "Mr. Weeks was interested in several business enterprises in the West. I have had no opportunity as yet to look mto his affairs, but, as nearly as I can now tell, he was quite a borrower of money, and he found it impossible to secure sufficient accommodation and so was obliged to make an assignment." Mr. Welling was unable to give any ■ idea of the liabilities of Mr. Weeks. West Sipkhiok, Wis., May I.— F. 11.

Secretary Hoke Smith Takes Hold of His Department With Energy. The Northwest Will Be Aided by Prompt Action in Contests. Congressman Boen Looked in Vain for the Viking^ at New York. Did Secretary Tracy Fail to Notify Norway and Swe den of the Review? Special to the Globe. ■ Washington-, May I.— "Young men for action, old men for counsel" is an adage that President Cleveland seems to have followed in making up his official family. The three young men of the cabinet are Secretaries Smith, of the interior; Lamont, of war, and Bissell, of the postofnee depart ment. All of these posts carry impor tant . responsibilities, and afford all the opportunity to be desired for work. To the Northwest, especially the newer and greater Northwest, the most important branch of the government is the interior depart ment. By a haltinir, indecisive policy in dealing with questions affecting the public domain the development of the whole country from Lake Michigan to the coast can be retarded and delayed, and the people of all those states dam aged to an almost untold amount. The people of the Northwest want an honest, capable administration of this great department, and this is what they are going to get. Although not yet forty years of age. Secretary lloke Smith has won a reputation as a brainy, courageous and industrious man that made his selection seem wise and judicious before he took hold of the department. Since then he has won praise from all sides. In less thai) two months he lias familiarized himself with nearly every branch of his great department, and already the decks are cleaved for notion. The opinion of his course, as summed up by lion. Michael Doran a few weeks ago, was that he was "working like a horse," and so he has, and every move he makes is di rected toward some definite object. Virtue In Action. One of his decisions in the Southwest threw thousands upon thousands of acres of land claimed by one of the Pa cific railroads open to settlement, and will have the effect of renewing the de velopment of Southern California and Arizona. The point of this decision was not so much that he decided against the railroad company, but that he acted. The development and growth of the country were retarded by the fact that the lands were in dispute. Had the railroad won. the lands would have at once been placed on sale and settlers would have gone in and com menced improving them. A case that much resembles this is the celebrated Hastings & Dakota grant in Big Stone, Chippewa and Swift counties, Minnesota. A decision is what is needed because when decided the lands must soon find their way on the tax lists and thus aid in building roads and bridges and paying the expenses of government. By the zeal and energy with which Secretary Smith has taken hold of the work of his department he has demon strated in a marked manner the wisdom ot - the president in se lecting a young man full o life, endowed with courage and ability, for the head of the interior department. The work is there to be done. Thou sands and hundreds of thousands of acres of land are tied up by contests in this department which decisions would unloose and open to development, and it is the aim of the young Georgian to clear up all of these matters as rapidly as possible, because he realizes the great injustices worked by delays, whether , needless or not. VIKINGS NOT REPRESENTED. Congressman TJoen Wonders Why His Native Land Was Forgot ten. Special to the Globe. Washington. May L— "Why was it that the greatest maritime nation in proportion to size in the whole history of the world was not asked to partici pate in the great naval review at New York?" This is the question that the only Norwegian member of congress present ip New York last week proposes to ask the authorities, and investigate. Congressman 11. E. Boen, cf Ilia Sev enth Minnesota, was this man, and as he stood on the deck of the Monmouth, the guest of the nation, last Thursday, while feeling proud of his adopted country, his seafaring blood fairly boiled when he saw no vessels present from Norway and Sweden. Proud of the deeds of darns of the Norsemen in' all ages, he felt that a great mistake had been made by some one. Whether Secretary Tracy, of the administration that retired two months ago, gave no no tice, or else insufficient notice, to the government of Norway and Sweden, the fact remains that it seemed strange indeed that the land of the vikings, the first discoverers of this continent, as well as the land of John Ericsson, whose monument was un veiled at New York only a day or two before the review should not be repre sented. Annother interesting fact in connection with the review, was that of all the Scandinavian members of con gress. Representative Boen was the only one present on the Monmouth. Above Dansrer Lino.

It is five feet above the Eovernment danger line, and liat row and Sausage row are flooded, but this nothing unusual for these pur lieus, damage has been done and none is apprehended. Unless there should be more rain the rise will stop at fifty-two feet. FAMOUS TROTTEItS. The Early Ufa of Many of the Most Xotatl Wera Discovered By Acsidaat. Newark Sunday Mail. ', It is a remarkable fact that many of the most fa-nous horses of the trottjng turf were not appreciated until after they had arrived at maturity. With a great many the trotting quality was dis . covered by accident. It is on record that Floia Temple was once sold for $13. and the great mare Princess, dam of Happy Medium, brought her breeder about $40. Tacony pulled a stage, and Mack like.v ise. . Abdallah 1. would h ave been made to haul a fish earl ha d not his lofty spirit rebelled at the Indignity. Billy Button was used as a runner to force the pace of Peralto. (ioldsinith Maid was once sold for Sl'JO, and the dam of Ethan Allen was sold at the age of ten torf!"). Dutchman worked in a brick yard, so did Old Colu mbus, aud Andrew Jacksou was foaled in one. Charley B was used to haul stone up from a quarjy by derrick and pullev.Codolphin Arabian drew a watering cart in the streets of Paris. Justin Morgan was long a wheel horse in Vermont. The grand-dam of Moubars did farm drudgery. The dam of Billy Button hauled garden truck to market and pulled v milk wagon alternately. Gifford Morgan drew slabs from a saw mill uiid at one time was sold for -?100. The dam of Flying Morgau useu to ped dle woodware. The sue ot Jtarus was worked to a butcher's cart, and it is said that the dam of Black Hawk also drew a butcher's cart. The fi rat authentic account or Old Pilot places him in the hands of a Yankee peddler in New Oi lcans. The dam of Lady Urls wold was used by a patent medicine vender. Tile dam of Green Mountain Morgan ground apples in a cider null. The dam of Taggert's Abd allah drew the wagon of a tin peddler. It is very easy to ac count lor the Morgans being put to a somewhat menial service. They were Strong, hardy and speedy. They would work anywhere, and their descendants will to this day. No road is too lou^ for them, and no reasonable load too heavy. THE EGYPT OF TODAY. Described by Alfred Bfilner, Lato U:i 'lar Secretary lor Finance in Kitypt. England iv Egypt. "Imagine a people the most docile and good tempered in the world in tiiu grip of a religion the most intolerant and fanatical. Imagine this people and this faith, congenial in nothing but their conservatism, tiling into the maelstrom of European restlessness and innova tion. Imagine a country full of tur bulent foreigners, wii om ltd police can not arrest except Haver ante dejicto.whom its courts cannot try except for the most insignificant offenses. Imagine the gov ernment of this country unable to legis late for these foreigners without the consent of a dozen distinct powers, most of them indifferent and somu of them ill-disposed. "Imagine it carrying on its principal business in a foreign tongue, which yet is not the tongue of the predominant foreign race. Imagine it struggling to meet lie clamorous, growing needs of today with a budget rigorously fixed according to the minimum requirements of the day before yesterday. Imagine the decree of this government liable to be set at naught by courts of its own creation. Imagine its policy really in spired and directed by Hie envoy of a foreign state, who in theory is only one — and not even the do/en— of a large; number of such envoys, and the chief administrative power wielded by a man who, in theory, is a mere 'adviser with out executive functions.' Yes, imagine all these things, and then realize that they are no \\likado'-like invention of comic opera, no nightmare of some con stitutional theorist with a disordered brain, but prosaic, solid fact— an un varnished picture of the political Egypt of toda y."

The Curiosity of Peoph Amply Satis fied on Tjis Subject- We do not believe in publishing the secrets of hospitals, but very often they make failure* to cure when a remedy we know of has afterwards perfectly and completely cured. A well-known and highly respected gentleman, W. N. Lowers by name, who resides at 117 East Hauitramck street* Mt. Yernon. Ohio, tells his experience) as follows: "Two years ago I was taken down with rheumatism, and the doctors could give me but little relief, and 1 spent all 1 had and was no better. In fact. 1 got worse, and 1 suffered beyond descripv lion. "1 was taken to St. Francis Hospital at Columbus, where the best doctors of the State could try their skili. I pot no better. "Then they took me to St. Anthony Hospital in the same city. The doctor said 1 could not Ret well, that nothing would cure me. "1 went home thiiiKinsr I never could eet well. 1 got worse and I went to llio druir store to get something to relieve me of my suffering. I talked with tlia druggist about Dr. dreene's NVrvura blood and nerve remedy, and 1 got j bottle oi it and commenced U-ilug lU AY. N. I.OWKK'. "The fourth day 1 besjau to feel a change, 'l'hat terrible tired feeling be gan to disappear, anil when 1 com menced osing it my weight was 181 pounds; now I weigh 144 pounds. "My friends and acquaintances are looking at D>e with wonder. They think I will tret perfectly well. I make this statement public so that those who have suffered as I have may be benefited as I have been. "I thank my Maker for guiding me to this medicine." There are thousands of people suffer in^ from poor blood, weak nerve*, rheu matism, neuralgia atul other weakening and painful diseases, who can certainly be cured by using Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy. It is purely vegetable and harmless, and druggists keep it for fl. Doctors recommend this remedy be cause they know it cures, and because it is the discovery and prescription of a noted physician, Dr. Greene, of :ir> W. 14th Street, New York, the successful specialist in curing nil forms of nervous aiid chronic diseases. The doctor can be consulted, tree of charge in all cases, personally or by letter. AJH!M;:»!i:iVrs. **** TUT TOTT I I Walter Stanford i &•• THE STRUGGLE Saniatim Of the (If I ICC ... Season.
