Probable Increase of Revenue Causes the Rush for Stamps. There is considerable speculation going on regarding the large sales of revenuestamps and the big shipments of manufactured tobacco. The gen- erai or,jninn is that t,h r.nsf nmprs of An Internal Revenue Collector, who visited Washington last week, is quoted as saying that there is no lon ger doubt of war and measures will be passed at once making provision for war taxes. The internal revenue de partment has made its recommenda tions and the House Committee on ways and means is now at work on the bills to be offered. Capt. Sneed Notified. Capt. L W. Sneed has been notified that if war is declared he will be called upon to go out with a company. He was Captain of the Gate City Guards fur two years; in fact he has been in tbe military tbusiness nearly ever since he was of age until he came to Winston.

Boils and pimples and an incessant weariness tell the story. The appetite fails just when a good one is needed, m rr a . the energies relax, and an unspeak able languor pervades the wornout body. Every one knows the im portance of thoroughly cleansing the blood and purifying the system and thus avoiding the deadly ty phoid fever and other dangerous diseases which crowd the path of summer. But it is equally impor tant that the right remedy be taken at this critical period one which will purify and build up the system at the same time.

The full text of the resolutions adopted will be found on the second page of this issue of Tns Sentinel The Cabinet met at an early hour this morning and considered the reso lutions. Vice President Hobart and Speaker Reed affixed their signatures to the resolutions and immediately aftt-r tbe two Houses were called to order at noon a messenger was on hand pre pared to hasten with them to the White House This morning all signs indicated that'the President wouid immediately sign them and put their demands into operation. The President will transmit the ultimatum to Spain, giving twenty four hours, to comply with the de mands and notify her Government that aggressive measures will be taken if she declines. lt is not believed that Spain will answer favorably the ultimatum.
