H * little ho } ' Ralph , thou seven years old , was I
very sick uml for several days it secmod as
if ho would uover ho any hotter. After a
while bo Logan to improve and in a few
wcoIcb was ahlo to go out , although weak
and miserable. Then , gradually
All Strength in His Limbs
gave out. The physicians told us it wa3
paralysis , which sometimes follows au ut-
tack of diphtheria. AVe did everything
for him , hut bo grew worse until ho was in
a pitiful condition. Ho suffered terribly
at night and complained continually of
his head , and in what little sleep he was
ahlo to get , moaned unceasingly. Ho lost
all coutrol of the muscles of his body and
limbs. He had no nppetito audcomplaiuod
of fooling sick at bis stomach all the time.
After wo had tried many different reme
dies and had about given up all hope
commenced him Hood's Sur.
wo giving > a-
parilla. In a short time ho ceased to com
plain , his appetite improved and at the
end of three months ho was ahlo to attend
school a pait of the time. Now ho is well
and quito a strong and rugged boy. You
are at liberty to m > o this testimonial if you
desire , as wo feel wo cannot say too much
in prniso of Hood's Barsaparilla as a blood
puriflor and building up medicine" Mia.

The reason of the new fangled fem
inine fancy known as the Russian
blouse was discovered by a "Washing
ton Star reporter on a trip from Jersey
City to Washington a lev/ nights ago.
The train had just begun to move out
of the Jersey City station when a
young woman , rather of the "new" order - •
der , swung herself aboard. She was
almost breathless from hunying , and ,
unlike the majority of her se.\ , was sin
gularly unhampered by luggage. A
neatiy rolled umbrella and a jacket
were all the traveling gear she carried.
The young woman occupied a section
by herself , and it was apparent that
she contemplated retiring , for she re
quested the porter , with every indica
tion of weariness , to make up her berth
with all possible haste. Yet was the
reporter mildly curious to observe ihat
the young woman had no grip in which
it is usual to carry toilet conveniences.
He wondered if she contemplated ly
ing down in an immaculate tailor
made skirt and a fashionable Russian
blouse. As the making up of the berth
neared completion the young woman
rose and proceeded to the lavatciy. Ev
ery one in the car looked at her , for she
was exceedingly handsome and pos
sessed a trim little figure. Pretty scon
she returned to her section and the re
porter marveled more than ever. She
was arrayed in a black India silk neg
lige , and she carried her blouse over
her arm. Several observing women exchanged - "
changed wondering glances , for they ,
too , had noticed the absence of all lug
gage , and were puzzled at the transfer
mation. This fascinating traveler was
the object of general attention next
morning as the train rolled into "Wash
ington. The young woman sat calmly
in her section , rolling into the small
est and tightest bundle possible the
India silk garment. This completed ,
she closed a folding comb , put a tooth
brush into an oil silk cover , and with
a dexterous movement from under
neath , which looked like the stretch
ing of an elastic band , the young wom
an slipped neglige , comb and tooth
brush into her Russian blouse. A hand
kerchief and veil soon followed , and
lo ! the traveler suggested one of our
west end girls arrayed for a morning
stroll on F street , without a suggestive
sign of having passed the night on a

Canada , and speaking of a garden that
he saw in the Edmonton District , says :
"On August 23rd we had the pleasure
of visiting the model seven-acre gar
den at Edmonton , owned and operated
by one Donald Ross , a typical Scotch
man , and as whole-souled , good-na
tured old gentlemen as you often
meet. He gave the Yankees each a
hearty handshake as we were intro
duced in succession by the Canadian
Government Agent , who was our guide
and pilot while at Edmonton , and to
whom we are indebted for many cour
tesies conferred. Mr. Ross informed
us that he cleared from ? 800 to $1,000
annually from the sale of roots , vege
tables , flowers and plants. We here
state that we never before saw such a
growth of vegetables ac that season of
the year. He said that he raised 750
bushels of onions to the acre. Beets
were growing as large as your arm ,
turnips the size of one's head , and
cabbages as large as a patent pail. Fol
lowing are prices that Mr. Ross gave
us as receiving fcr his produce : Beets ,
50 cents per bushel : carrots , 40 cents ;
onions , $1.25 ; turnips , § 5 per ton ; cab
bage , 4 cents each ; green corn , 25
cents per dozen ; tomatoes , $1.50 per
bushel ; potatoes. 25 to CO cents ; cauli
flower , $1 per dozen ; cucumbers , 15
cents per dozen ; strawberries , 25 cents
per box ; squash , 4 cents per lb. , and
other produce in proportion. He kept
a hot-house 12x180 feet , heated by a
furnace by means of flues. One man
beside himself attended this garden ,
except at time of gathering the crop. "

HAVANA ( via Key West ) , March 12.
( New York World Cablegram ) The H
discovery of the Maine's ram and its
position relative to the rest of the
wreck is the crowning proof that the H
ship was blown up by a mine or a H
large torpedo. There is no longer H
room for doubt , reasonable or unrea- M
sonable. The ship Is absolutely broken H
in two. Its heavy ram today points M
almost at right angles fiom the point M
of the intact rear two-thirds of the M
ship. It points under water squarely " ( H
at the Spanish cruder Alfonso XIr. M
which is anchor way to the left of the M
wreck. It should ucint risdtt ahead M
at La Machina. The quser phenomenon - M
non cf the present position of the visible - H
ible portion of the wreck is thus ex- J M
plained : H
On February 15 Alfonso Nil and tha ' H
City of Washington- , immediately after H
the explosion , lay very near the Maine , H
but pointed away to the left of the direction - H
rection in which the visible unrtion H
of the wreck was found to point the H
next morning. Experts said that M
either an unaccountable current had M
held the Maine in a different position M
from that of the others while all were M
at anchor , or the Maine was hurled M
away around toward the right by the fl
force of an outs.Je exnlosion against fl
the port side well toward the forward H
end. It was hurled away and the explosion - H
plosion against its port bottom wan j l
powerful enough to break the ship W M
bodily and hurl it up and over tha M
starboard at the point of greatest impact - H
pact about 100 feet ( or one-third of M
the ship's length ) , from its lam. M
The Maine's extreme fcrwird a. 'nt ' H
was a masshe steel ram , a termendous H
heavy structure. It moved but little , H
and this portion of the ship between H
it and the point of PXDlnsicn swims H
upon this arm like a weight upon a H
fulcrum , away from that awful" force H
applied against the port side. In the H
same manner the stern of the Ma inn M
was- uninjured and moved little , while M
200 feet of the ship fcrwaid to the M
point of impact swung around to the M
right away from the force. And the M
