fecial to The Mohn-ino Call
Paris, Oct. 18.— There has been great ex
citement during the week at Lyons over iho
United States tariff law. and Durdcau, the
Lyons Deputy, lias given notice that he will,
in the Chamber, demand retaliation for the -
increased duties on French goods. -He will
especially propose that a retaliatory duty be
placed on petroleum, and also suggests that
Boards of Inspection be established for the
examination of all imports from the United
(in the other hand, a committee for the de
fense of the silk market held a great meet
ing at Lyons, at which the speakers to.jkthe
ground that retaliation was likely to do
more harm than good. The President of the
Chamber of Commerce called attention to
the fact that the retaliatory policy, against
Italy has already cost the Lyons market
7,700,000 francs' worth of business and given
Germany industrial supremacy in Italy,
'. esides the notable injustice committed by
France and other countries toward America
in. the matter of pork had led to conferring
extraordinary powers upon the President ef
the United States by the Edmunds retalia
tion bill, and might entail dangers to the
great French staple articles of export, par
ticularly wines and silks. The President
was followed by a Senator and two members
of the Chamber of Deputies, all of whom
spoke to the same effect
The Petit Journal thinks the bill affects
England and Germany more than France,
Inch ought not to be drawn into making
reprisals against the United States.
Le Temps holds that if the new American
tariff .-> injurious to French interests, France
cannst complain, as it has for over nine
years persisted in enforcing an unwise act
that has been injurious to America. '"The
moment has come," it says, to repair this
I mistake, aud circumstances are favorable."
The Councilor the Department of Douches
dv Rhone has already" called for the annul
ment of the deeres against American pork.
A meeting of the Cabinet was held to-day,
at which the final draft of the general
customs tariff was approved. - Tike Cabinet

Budget Committee iv the expenditures as
estimated by Rouvier, Minister of Finance.
This leaves 4,500,000 francs available, thus

duty on alcohol.
Paris Ch.isb-r of Commerce.
PARIS, Oct 18.— The Chamber of Com
ni-ic-- in Paris held a meeting, followed
by a banquet, at the Hotel de Petersburg,
this evening. The McKinley tariff law
was the subject under discussion. The
principal question was, will the tendency of
retaliation in the matter eventually be
prejudicial or favorable to International
trade? The debate was a hot one. The
McKinley bill was considered unwise, and
not likely to do any good to America.
It would rather make enemies in foreign
countries for her question of foreign re
prisals was allowed to be a difficult one to
answer. It was finally decided that the
tffeit of the bill temporarily would not im
prove the condition of trade and finances
between Eutopo and European colonies,
and would probably help toward an iater
. change of friendly feeling between Euro
pean countries by making them more de
pendent on one another.
A Threat to Blew np the Parliament Eaild-
in? "With Dynamite.
Ottawa Ontario , Oct. 18.— In connection
with reviving public Interest in the exploit
of Red Jim Dennett and the Irish dyna
miters, it may not be amiss to mention that
quite a little sensation was created at the
Provincial Departments at Quebec last
week by the appearance of a young man in
the garb of a laborer who declared he knew
who blew up the Parliament buildings at
Quebec in October, 1884, and who was m.x
nu3 to wain the authorities against another
attempt. He was admitted -to the ollice of
the Commissioner of Public Works, who
heard his story and sent him to the Police
Magistrate, who also heard and took notes
of his tale. The young man said he was
rdFllteauof Saint Komuald d'Etche
nrio, a village on the opposite shore of the
it. Lawrence. His calling was that of a
strolling acrobat. His tale was to the ef
fect that three weeks since at Bout de i'lsle,
near Montreal, another young man in his
rinoloy, Alphonse Roberce, belonging to
Three Rivers, who has since cleared out,
boasted to him that it was he who had
blown up the Parliament building, and that
before snow Hew this winter he intended to
repeat the attempt, and be more successful

IRELAND'S POTATO CHOP.
A Statement That There Is No Nee! for Am.ri-
London-, Oct. 18.— most veracious and
authoritative statement which has yet ap-
eared about the alleged Irish famine come i
from James 11. Tuke. He has beau working
for many years in a practical way to relieve
distress where it exists. His experience
goes back to 1846, when he was one of the
workers fur the relief of the famine sufferers.
lie now says that there is no dan
ger of what is termed a famine, that the
area over which a serious failure in the
potato crop exists is limited ton few western
counties, and the general condition of the
people in the congested' districts renders
them better able to bear the loss— partial or
entire— the potato crop than in 1880, and
that the people are not by any means so
dependent on potatoes for their daily food
as formerly, and that they . each
year consume larger quantities of wheat
flour and Indian meal. The potato crop,
except in wet and boggy lands, is good, and
Is telling at moderate prices. With refer
ence to the proposed American charity, Mr.
Tuke says that it would be a serious evil to
let it be supposed that either British or
American generosity was about to lie poured
into the congested districts. What is needed
Is something to stimulate, not to lessen, the
self-reliance of the people.

London*, Oct. Frank Slavin called at
the Herald office to-day and left an open
letter, in which lit says of John L. Sullivan :
"I have beaten more men in ono year than
Sullivan has in las whole career. John

in his time he had nothing to meet. " All his

the co with Mitchell was a Punch and

as regards who is the best man to-day. The

THE WORK OF
Lawless Secret Societies in
Chief of Police Hennessy HQFdared for
Enforcing the Law.
Mayor Shakespeare to Be the Next Victim.
Damaging Evidence Against a
Special to The Mousing Call
New Orleans, Oct. 18.— Joseph Ma
checa and several other Italians were ar
rested to-day charged with being accessories
to the murder of Chief of Police Hennessy.
At a special meeting of the City Council
this morning Mayor Shakespeare's message
was read denouncing the murder of Hen
nessy through hired assassins; declaring
that terrible secret orders exist In Xew Or
leans; that the Chief of Police was assas
sinated for enforcing American laws; that
any citizen performing his duty, or under
any circumstance incurring the enmity of
these societies, is liable to have the sentence
of death passed on him, and the sentence
carried out by assassins who say nothing
and know nothing; that some leading Italians
are at the head of these orders, while others,
more peacefully inclined, are blackmailed
and threatened with death, or obliged to
leave the city if they do not comply with the
edicts of the society ; that this state of affairs
has cone on long enough and must be stopped.
The Council is called on to take initiative
steps to drive, if necessary, these people
from the United States. A resolution was
adopted that the Mayor appoint a committee
of fifty or more, if he deems proper, to
thoroughly investigate these secret orders
and report. This afternoon the Mayor re
ceived an anonymous communication noti
lying him that he will be the next victim.'
Mayor Shakespeare says this will not deter
him from doing bis duty. De bus unpointed
a committee of fifty. The most tense ex
citement over the developments prevails in
the city, and there is danger of the loner
classes being incited to inaugurate a bloody
race war against the Italians.
The meeting of the Committee of Fifty
to-night was secret, but the committee an
nounced that it would pursue the investiga
tion to tbe end, bring the murderers of
Hennessy to justice and break up the
Italian assassination leagues In this city.
A thousand dollars was raised on the spot
and by next week the committee expects to
have 550,000 to assist in work. One of
the facts stated was that the ship Elysia is
coming up next week with 700 Italian emi
grants on board. The Mayor Interviewed
lie '.'list. bouse authorities and as a
result they will go down and meet the ship,
ami, unless t.'ie emigrants can satisfy the
officers that they are desirable financially
and morally, they will not be allowed to
Joe Macheca, who was arrested to-day,

Italian, above tin* murderous plots of his
more ignorant fellow-countrymen. Since
his arrest some damaging eviti*tieo has de
veloped, The owners of the shanty E where
the assassins are supposed to have plotted
aud gathered, identified Macheca as the man
who rented tiie place from them and paid a
month's rent in advance. Several parties
also say they followed Macheca on the night
of tlm murder. He and the Matrongas, also
supposed to be leaders in the affair, were
eating a big supper while the shooting was
going ii. They remained until 4 o'clock in
the morning having a good time, and when
they parted Macneca is alleged to have said,
"Boys, I've done all I can. lam only sorry
he was not killed at the first tire."

attributes the decreased net returns, in the

ALL IS ACTIVITY
Senator Stanford Received by the
Union League Club.
Enthusiastic Meeting at ths Wiswam—Mor
row Tells of Hii Work in Congress-Pop
ularity of the Beform Movement.
A reception was tendered to United States
Senator Eeland fit Stanford . last night by
the members of the Union League. Club at
tho elegant quarters at 322 Geary streot.
Over 3oo guests were present. The rooms
were decorated tastefully with ferns and
flowers, and the pleasure of the evening was
completed by the sweet strains of music
from a string band under the leadership of
Louis yon der Mehden. ..
At 9:4s o'clock Senator Stanford arrived.'
lie made a tour of the rooms In company
with W. 11. Chamberlain, the genial Presi
dent of the club. Iv one of the reception
rooms the chaperono halted his distinguished
companion, and for over one hour the as
sembly moved inline past the Senator and
exchanged friendly greetings with him.
In formally introducing the guest of the
evening, Mr. Chamberlain stated that when
the East and West were connected by
bands of steel Governor Stanford was the
controlling power in the great work. He
said that Mr. Stanford has always been a
Ca'lifoiuiau at heart and a C'aliforniaii in
his deeds, and is at present giving to this
State tho proud distinction of possessing tho
greatest educational institution tv the
world, in which Mrs. Stanford is ably taking
bar part. The speaker eudtd by asserting
that for what Senator Stanford has done and
is doing for California the Union League
Club has tendered him the present honor.
GLAD TO MEET FRIENDS.
Senator Stanford said that be was glad to
come home and glad to meet bis Republican
aud Democratic friends." In late years he
had come to the conclusion that it is not
politics altogether but patiiotism that be
longed to the people of this country, lie
considered the Democrats good people, but
liable to a great many errors. [Laughter.]
Referring to his recent visit to Europe,
he said that the greatest extravagance there
is in the waste ofjabor owing to crude ap
pliances. While acknowledging that the
standing armies are a tremendous burden
on the people, he did not believe them to be
a greater evil tiian the waste of labor. He
found Russia steeped in ignorance aud the
people poor and distressed. He discerned a
great difference between the residents of
Northern and Southern' Italy," Inasmuch as
compulsory education had been conducted
in the North for several years, resulting In -
a wonderful improvement of the people of
that section over those of the South.
In comparing tne progress of European
countries be classed England first, Belgium
next, then France and Italy. In the hitter
country he said laboring men are paid ten
tents a day. lie lound that where the best
and greatest quantity of machinery is In
operation, there ' centered the greatest
amount of wealth.' He was satisfied that
the wages of men will bo according to their
power of production. "
>. Contrasting Europe with the United States,
he : directed attention to Mew England,
where, although the farming land In exceed
ingly poor, there ere people very rich in
capital. ' He claimed that iho reason there
for Is owing to the intelligence of the people
and their wonderfully inventive faculties.
ONE AND THE SAME THING.
Touching upon tbelliair bill, he remarked
th-U Ihe possibilities of Immunity and the
beneficence ol the Creator are one and the
same thing. Tho schools are the great me
dium of tbe development of intelligence,
and Mrs. St mi ford aud himself arc more de
leimined tliant-ver to insure the success
of Palo Alto University at an early date.
The speaker expressed bis belief that to
secure life, liberty and happiness good gov
ernment is | necessary; and enlarging upon
that statement be very truthfully asserted
that the It-publican party is composed very
largely of the Intelligence of tiie people of
the United States.
It believes in common schools and prog
ress, and it is the misfortune of the Demo
cratic party to believe to the contrary—
simply because it does nut yet understand
tho principles of our Government, although
gradually being educated to them. [Cheers ]
lie said that the French have been 100
years in learning that liberty does not mean
license, He then thanked the club for the
honor done him, and repeated that he was
very glad to be homo again.
W. W. Morrow and others delivered short
speeches, and then the guests were enter
tained with an elaborate lunch.
J. M. Litchfield and P. W. Sumner acted
as an escort to Mr. Morrow from tun new
Wigwam to the club. T. 11. Minor and W.
11. X: use were at the ferry to meet Congres
ttiaii McKcntia, but returned without th.it
gentleman, owing to his being detained In
Alameda. Senator Stanford was escorted to
the club by A. P. Williams and W. W. Mon

E. F. r.orn's LETTER OF regret.
The following letter was read from E. F.
SAN Francisco (Cal.). Oct. 18, 1890.
IT. H. Chamberlain, President Union League
Club, San Francisco— DHAK Colonel: In re
ply to this, your second kindly Invitation to be
present at your reception, 1 have to say that a
meeting has teen already arranged for me this
evening la Los Gatos. Having received Ilia
humiliation almost at the eleventh hour. It lias
been necessary for Hie to quickly stitke the
enemy in some vulnerable point, if such could be
found, aud from the hour of my nomination I
have been upon his trail.
While I feel highly the honor you have con
ferred by wishing my personal presence among
you that you might aid aud encourage my efforts,
I Dave tell thai you, as loyal Republicans, by
your known devotion to the cause and principles
of our party, would lend all the aid in your
power. 1 ask It; I expect It: and have to say
that if Republicans are line and steadfast for a
few lioni mure the victory is ours. Understand
my position; and I will assure you that on the
slb of November it will afford "me pleasure to
meet you. when we ail, as Republicans, assemble
lor congratulation. Yours respectfully,
. _ E. F. Loud.
AT THE WIGWAM.
W. W. Morrow Apiilaudad by Enthusias
About 3000 persons, including many ladies
in the gallery, tilled every seat in the new
.Republican Wigwam last night when Hor
ace Davis called the ratification meeting to
order. Alter a tuneful selection by Wol
cotl's Baud Mr. Davis made a brief address,
in which he alluded to the many good things
accomplished during the recent session of
Congress. Among the measures beneficial
to California are tne Silver Coinage and the
McKinley Tariff bills. All the Pacific Coast
States and Territories had also been greatly
benefited during a Republican administra
Hon. W. W. Morrow was next greeted
with prolonged cheering. De began an in
teresting address by slating that the Repub
lican party went into existence by fighting
for liberty and the people would fight for
ever for. liberty aud protection. At this
point ho was interrupted by tbe appearance
of the Markham Vldeltes, who marched
into the building under Captain H. W. Quit
m\\ Jr. Three cheers were given for Mr.
Morrow, who in returu proposed as many
for the Vfdettes.
Referring lo his work In Congress, Mr.
Morrow said : "In the last Congress we
worked together. I object to Clunie's re
election, and my objection is that he is not a
Republican. The increased appropriations
for Sacramento and San Jose was the act of
the Republican party. The party believes
we should have a suitable navy, proper coast
defenses and better postal facilities. The
Democratic party don not approve of this
work. We are in favor of the very best pub
lic buildings in every portion of the country.
If a Republican Congress is continued you
will thereby confirm the views of the party
in its policy, and buildings will be erected
here that will be a credit to the city." ; . -
TO SKCUKE GOOD WAGES.
Of the McKinley bill Mr. Morrow said:
"The Republican party is In favor of pro
tecting the industries of the country for the
putpose of securing good wages fur the
workingmen and a home market for our
products. Every person shall be prosper
ous and receive good wages." Then the
speaker related how the home manufactur
ers of tin plate had been shut out by for
eigners because of a lack of protection to
the industry. During tho last seventeen
years 5320,000,000 has been paid to England
for tin plate. 'Ihe tariff of two cents a
pound on tin, he said, was just enough to
cover the difference between the price of
labor in the United States and in Great
Britain. By making tho tin here 520,000,000
a year would be kept in this country.
Iron and lend mines, cattle-raising, pork
packing and chemical works would be bene
fited by the home manufacture of tin, and
statistics were quoted to show that there
is not a single protected industry that has
not caused a reduction in cost. In three
years from now, when the tin manufactories
are running, he predicted that tinware
will be cheaper than ever before. It was
time that certain tariffs had been raised,
but this was upon such luxuries as French
champagnes and brandies and Havana
cigars. Certain tariffs had been reduced, as
a protection tariff must only be placed upon
those things that it is desirable to protect.
OPPONENTS OF Till-: HILL.
"Those opposed to the McKinley bill,"
he continued, "are the manufacturers of
(treat Britain and the Democratic part}-.
Will the bill ever DO repealed? No! never.
[Applause.] San Francisco ought to send
Cutting and Loud to Congress with a major
ity of 10,000, because it is in the interest of
the city to do so. You want to vote the
State ticket with Markham for Governor.
1 believe he will make an honest efficient
Speaking of Markham's opponent lie said:
"Our friend Pond offers us the security of
.Buckley. The people will say : 'Buckley is
not good security in this State and, Mr.
Pond, you must stand aside.' "
Miss Daisy May Creasy sang a new cam
paign selection, after which there were
shouts for W. 11. L. Dames. Mr. Barnes
predicted the success of the entire State
ticket and said that California never had a
more faithful or zealous member in Congress
than Mr. Morrow. Four years hence tho
people of California might say: "Mr. Mor
row, we want you again."
At the conclusion of Mr. Barnes' remarks
three cheers were given for Markham and
Morrow, nnd the baud played patriotic airs
as the auditors slowly left the building.
Another Large Mais-Meeting- in the Open
The audience which greeted the speakers
of the Reform Democracy at its open-air
mass-meeting on the corner of Powell and
Eddy streets last night was the largest
since these gatherings have been inaug
urated. The spectators displayed the keenest
attention to the remarks of the speakers on
the denunciation of boss rule and vigor
ously applauded whenever a telling point
was made. •;
Peter Roberts opened the meeting in a
short speech, in bleb he alluded to the
gratifying success which the Reform party is
making in its popular way of reaching the
people, He was followed by Dr. Cleveland,
candidate lor Coroner on the Reform ticket.
This speaker could not find wonts to ex
press bis contempt for the political tyrants
who managed to control politics by their
corrupt methods. He said that when a
member of the Board of Education politi
cians had made attempts twenty dillerent
times to Initio him in order to secure posi
tions for their female friends. He declared
that the light on the side of the Reform party
is a contest between filth and cleanliness,
corruption and purity, and honest govern
ment in the interest of the people against
machine manipulation of officers in the in
terest of corporations. •
"fit&'i ' CA'i'llil O.N HIE TARIFF.
Thomas V. Cator, candidate, for Congress,
ascended the wagon platform and spoke on
the issues ol the campaign. His remarks
were chiefly devoted to the tariff question,

McKinley bill was in the interests of the
people, thoef ore hoped it would be re
pealed. He took the position that all raw
material should be admitted free, which be
claimed would stimulate manufacturing in
terests and give rise to higher wages. He did
not believe that the owners of coal mines or
of lumber forests should have the benefit of
a high tariff.
Someone in the audience asked: .'. "How
will you treat Speaker Reed, it elected?"
"1 will treat him with the respect his high
office demands," was the answer. '
. Loud calls being made for James H. Barry,
t' at gentleman appeared and delivered a
ringing speech against political corruption.
He earnestly advocated the election of Mr.
Cator, and quoted from a speech made by
Robert Ferral some years ago, in which Fer
ral had denounced in the severest terms
Buckley and Rainey and their infamy.
:;i'J:'i,?f<i HELD UP TO SCORN. Tf.
Mr. Barry held Robert Ferral up to scorn
for his return to his masters, aud for bis
now bowing down before those whom he
i previously kicked. The speaker also
' severely scored W. F. Goad, candidate for
Mayor on the Democratic ticket, saying
that he is Buckley's willing tool and "in all
the jobs." He condemned Mr. Goad and
claimed that the latter had fostered and
engineered tho persecution of the late Kate
Kennedy, who afterward secured her rights
through the courts.
Charles A. Sumner followed in an address
in which lie referred to a combination which
lie said is being made between Buckley and
Crimmius to secure another "solid nine" in
the Board of Supervisors. He added if the
Reform ticket is elected there would be a
solid twelve who would work hi the interest
of the people.
The meeting then adjourned to the corner
of Golden Gate avenue and Market street,
where the same speakers addressed another
While Messrs. Cator and Sumner were ad
dressing the people at the corner of Sixth
and Market streets, policemen stepped up
nnd ordered the speakers to stop and the
meeting to disperse. From 3000 the crowd

A meeting was held In Metropolitan Tem
ple last night under the direction of the Iro
quois Club for the purpose of ratifying the
nomination of ex-Judge Robert Ferral,
Democratic nominee for member of Con
gress from the Fourth Congressional Dis
trict. Prominent among the gentlemen on
the platform was ex-Judge D. J. Toohy, ac
companied by "General" Solomon S. Ham
burger, who served as private secretary to
the late Jefferson Davis when the latter
was President of the lamented Southern
Ex-Senator William J. Tinnin was intro
duced by Philip Prior as Chairman of the
meeting, and be in turn presented Henry E.
Hightoo, who was greeted with a round of
applause. Mr. Hlghton stated that, in his
opinion, the Democratic party is not resiton-
either for slavery or secession, The
war was not fought and won by the Repub
lican party, he said, but by the people of the
country, and the abolition of slavery was
nothing more than less than an act of mili
tary necessity. This appeared to be a little
more than the audience could comprehend,
and was received in silence, but the speaker
revived the enthusiasm of his bearers by re
ferring to Andrew Jackson and Samuel J.
Tilden. evidently thinking that those two
last mentioned gentlemen are still in the
field anil asking their voles.
Mr. Iligtiton said he had always de
nounced bossism, and denied that any cor
rupt bargain had been made by Mr. Pond
with "Boss" Buckley for tbe purpose of
obtaining the gubernatorial nation. A
great portion of the speech was devoted to
abuse of the McKinley- bill, and a laugh was
raised by the express wish that the Repub
lican party might be compelled to live on
dried apples end warm water. The "intru
sion of mere wealth and Ignorance into the
United States Senate," was denounced in
terms so bitter that the friends of Senator
George Hearst showed signs of being un
Mr. Ferral was introduced amid a fresh
burst of applause and first thanked ex-Judge
Maguirc for his efforts in behalf of himself.
He next thanked and eulogized Mr. Hichton,
and then read from a newspaper report that
soino street-car employes had denounced
him because he let a striking car-man go to
San Queutin. Mr. Ferral admitted - that
one of his clients was sent across the bay,
but said he was only one out of a dozen.
" When I an: defending a man I defend
him with all my ability, and I stay with him
through thick and thin, and In most cases I
get them out," said Mr. Ferral.
" That's so!" shouted three or four scores
of men, waving their bauds and hats.
Replying to an attack by J. 11. Barry of
tho Star, in which it was alleged that Mr.
Ferral is a Buckley lamb, the speaker, with
out denying bis own lambhood, said: "It
is not so very long ago that Barry was
wearing fleet himself:
' Kuckiey had a little lamb,
With fleece not white as snow,
Ami everywhere that Buckley went
Barry was sure to go.' "
Thomas V. Cator, nominated against Mr.
Ferial by the Reform Democracy, was de
scribed as " Mr. Barry's man Friday."
The remarks of the speaker about Mr.
Cator were not enthusiastically received.

Registrar Smiley presented a large parcel
of defective certificates of regis tration to
tbe Board of Election Commissoners yes
terday, and explained that unless they are
rectified the persons whose names they con
lain would be deprived of their vote. These
certificates are among the many curious
specimens taken in the precincts during the
last few days. The commission ordered the
Registrar to cite each person to appear at
the earliest date possible.
The attention of the board was also called
to the fact that the Governor had neglected
in his proclamation to mention that a vote
must be taken on the constitutional amend
ment relative to city charters. It was de
cided to include that announcement in the
proclamation to be issued by the commis
The Registrar further called attention to
the action of many precinct officers inclosing
up their booths at meal-times, just when
many desire to register most, and remaining
away an hour or two. The " poor-box,"
which Tub Call took occasion to denounce
yesterday as an outrage on the public, was
also condemned by the Registrar.
A ward striker named Dougherty, who has
been very carspicuous before the commis
sion of late, expressed the belief that there
had been great frauds practiced during the
precinct registration, and suggested an offi
cial canvass. He proposed that every
person registered in the precincts be cited,
and that the Pavilion be hired in which to
conduct the examination.
After some cat-scratching of an uninter
esting nature between Commissioners Stroth
er and O'Brien, it was decided to order an
official canvass of tho precinct registration.

. So single disease has entailed more suffering or
hastened the breaking up of the constitution than
Catarrh. The sense of smell, or taste, of sight, of
hearing, the human voice, the mind— one or mora
andsometiiues all yield to its destructive influence.
The poison it distributes throughout the system at-
tacks every vital force and breaks up the most
robust of constitutions. Ignored, because but little
understood, by most physicians, iinpoieiitly assailed
by quacks anil charlatans, those suffering from it
have littlo hope to be relieved of it this side ot the
grave. It Is time, then, that the popular treatment
of this terrible disease by remedies within the reach
of all passed into hands at once competent and trust-
worthy. The new and hitherto untried method
adopted by Dr. San ford in the preparation of his
Radical Cure has won the hearty approval of
thousands. It is instantaneous m affording relief
in all head colds, sneezing, snuffling and obstructed
breathing, and rapidly removes the most oppressive .',; v
symptoms, clearing the head, sweetening tbe breath,
restoring the senses of smell, taste and hearing, and
neutralizing the constitutional tendency of the dis-
ease toward the lungs, liver aud kidneys.
San fold's Radical Cube consists of one bottle
of the Radical Cuke, one box of Catarrhal Sol-
vent and Improved Inhaler; price $1.
