New York, June 18. The Herald's Mad.
rid correspondent telegraphs that the re
ports of Spain having sent He nor Batanero
to Washington to negotiate the
sale of Cuba to the United
States are utterly baseless. The
correspondent reports the following re
sults ot conversations with leading Spanish
statesmen of all parties, Senor Elduayen,
secretary of state, said: "No ministry would
be permitted by the Hpanuh people to seU
Cuba, under any circumstances. This gov
ernment has neither official nor private
knowledge of Senor Batanero, and has no
agents in the United States except
its legation. The deficits in Cuban rev.
enues furnish no excuse for a sale.
All Spaniards would gladly pay Cuba's
debts if necessary to prevent a sale. It is
not possible to express in too strong lan
guage the impossibility of such a sale." Ex
Prime Minister Sagasta said: "The mere
suspicion ot negotiations for the sale of Cuba
would probably cau-e a political revolution.
Senor Moret leader of the advanced Liber
ais, said: "Neither party could be induced
to sell Cuba."
Ine Heralds Washington special says:
Your correspondent is able to say on the
best authority that President Cleveland and
the administration are entirely and abso
lutely opposed to all acquisitions of terri
tory, whether of Cuba or parts of
Mexico, or else here. The presi
dent feels very strongly and posi
tively on this point He believes we
have now as much territory and as large a
mass of illiterate and incongruous material
in our population as we can safely manage.
He Is totally oppose ! to an aggrandising
foreign policy, and believes that we have
work enough to do at home in reforming
our home administration. '

Father, Mother, and Three Bisters Dead.
Mr. David ClavpooL formerly Sergeant'
at-Arms of the Kew Jersey Senate, and now
Notary Public at Cedarville, Cumberland
Co., N. J., makes the following startling
statement : My father, mother, and three
sisters all died with consumption, and my
luugswere so weak I raised blood. Nobody
thought I could live. My work (ship
8iuithing)was very straining on me with my
weak constitution, and I was rapidly going
to the grave. Yliile in this condition I
commenced using Mishler'a Herb Bitters,
and it saved my life. Bemuse it was so
difficult to get it in this little place, and I
had improved so much, I stopped taking it
for a time, and the result ia that 1 have
commenced going rapidly down hill again.
Somehow, Mishler'a Herb Bitters gives
appetite and strengthens and builds me lip
as nothing else does, and I must Lave a
dozen bottles at once. Use this commu
nication as you please, and if any one wants
to be convinced of its truth, let them write
me and I will make affidavit to it, for 1
owe mv life to Mishlers Herb Bitters.
The secret of the almost invariable relief
and cure of consumption, dysentery, diar
rlina, dyspepsia, indigestion, kidney and
liver complaints, when Mishler'a Herb
Bitters is used, is that it contains simple,
harmless, and yet powerful ingredients,
that act on the blood, kidnevg, and liver,
and through them strengthens and invigor
ates the whole system. Purely vegetable
in its composition ; prepared by a regular
physician; a standard medicinal prepara
tion; endorsed by physicians and drug
gists. These are four strong Jioints in favor
of Mishler's Herb Bitters. Mishler's Herb
Bitters issold by all druggists. Price $1.00
per large bottle. 6 bottles for $5.00.
