"I ri troubled with heart dineaae
for six years, severe palpitations, short
ness of breath, together with such ex
treme nervousness, that, at times I would
walk tho floor nearly (ill night. Wo
consulted the best medical talent.
They said there uw a no help for me,
that I had organic, disenso of tho heart for
which there was no remedy. I had rcud
your advertisement in Tho Graphic and
a year ago, as a last resort, tried one bottloot
Or. jailrn' eir Cure for the Heart,
which convinced mo that there was truo
merit In It. I took threo bottles each of tho
Clcart Curo and Bcstoratlvo Nervino and
it completely cured me. I Bleep
well at night, my heart beats regularly and
( have no moro smothering spells. I wish
to Bay to all who are suiTering as I did;
there's relief untold for them If they will

Hill made a curious, though able
and powerful speech Friday. He an
nounced that he was going to vote
against the conferciico report on ac
count of the intervention finite, and
then devoted an hour to a fervent
apostrophe to Cuban liberty. Tho Now

of the New York business men who
have been showering telegrams upon
him unci on other members of the sen
ate, protesting against the present at
titude of congress, on tho ground that
it was seriouslv all'ecting commerce
w;th Cuba. Ho engaged in n oolloouy
f with Senator Hoar in regard to tho
effect which the resolutions could
have, during which he brought out
tho point that tho salo of arms to in
surgents was not unlawful now aud
could not be any moro unlawful in case
tho resolutionsshould be adopted.
"I should have hesitated," said Mr.
Hill, to have voted for 11 joint reso
lution which would have required the
president's action within ten days,
iiut the resolutions are safe because
they merely express our opinion and
hi nil no one but ourselves, although
thev will be received with respect by
the executive and will have their
moral effect through the country and
tho world, They are in accordance
with preeodont. aud in my opinion
congress should go thus far, but no
further. Hecognition of belligerency
is made on the theory that a whole
people cannot be prosecuted for trea
son. The Cubans now hold three
fourths of tho island. Prisoners of
war should be exchanged. Were we
to stand by and see them guillotined,
garotled, suot or executetl in any
other way.' J ho resolutions could
give nojolfense to Spaiu. Wo could
not do less. I ho ouestion of recogm
tion of belligerency addressed itself
to the uisception of all foreign powers.
It could do no harm in this instance
and might tend to stay this cruel war
fare. Shall wo not, he asked, rid tho
war of its infamy, degradation and
brutality? That is all theso resolu
tions proposed to do except tho hist, to
tho pusilanimous terms of which I can
never give my consent. Who is there
so craven that ho would abandon the
ideas under which wo unfurled tho flag
of freedom to tho world? Cuba is to
day resisting taxation without repre
sentation. It is the story of the
American Revolution over again.
I hero were Tones then as now whoso
sympathies were with aristocracy and
monarchy,and nowjas then they will
be crushed by tho force of an enlight
ened people determined to be free.
Tho conflict between republicanism
and monarchism is irrepressible, and
wili go on. God grant that Cuba may
succeed. If sho does not. let us hav'o
the consciousness that we have done
our duty-
Sherman answered all the objections
to theso resolutions in one terse epi
gram. "If war does not exist in Cuba
whoro outside of holt do?s it exist?'
"It was idlo," he said, ' for Spain
to declare that war did not exist
when, in fact, warfare was going - on
morn atrocious than any in the historv
of the Dark Ages. Continuing, Mr.
Sherman Biiid that it was impossible
that the present terrib'e eonditiou of
affairs should continue much longer,
Hero Mr. Sherman turned aside for i
tribute to President Cleveland. The
senator said there were differences of
political opinion between him and Mr.
Lieveianci. unt, lie added, "no one
doubts his courage: no one doubts his
fidelity to tho flag of our countrv: no
one doubts that. ''
The other most notable speech of
the debate was that of Morgan of Ala
barna Monday and Tuesdav. He main
taincd that a state of open, horrid war
existed in L.uba a war involving the
property, rights, liberties aud lives of
American citrcus who happen to be
there. The lino of action for congress
to take, ho said, was to declare "that
open war existed in Cuba, and that
tho laws of war should applv to it. If
neither party to tho struggle in Cuba
could defend the rights and property
of American citizens who were there.
then ho proposed that the government
of tho United States should intervene
to protect them. He answered tho
standard argument of tho opponents of
the resolutions, that the rebels have
no capitol. thus:
How many places of liabitationldul
tho government of the United States
and tho Continental Congress have
during tho Revolutionary war? They
li ad no less than nino capitals, and
the IJritish government could not
chase them down to cover. " And to!
Hale of Maine he said:
"The Spaniard had neither mercy nor
consideration in his heart for tho "poor
people of Cuba- for thoso poor
mulatocs and negroes and vagabonds
described by Minister I'D lome. They
have no recognition at tho court of
Spam. They never had, and never will
have. And tho Spaniards quarrel
with any American citizen (particu
larly if he resides in a negm commu
nity) who stands up in the senate of
tno united Jitalcs and demands for
these people all the rights of man.
The senator from Maine negatives that
demand, and is not willing that they
shall be free men in Cuba: and I take
it for granted that he is not willing
they shall bo free men here, either, un
less, by hook or crook, tnev pan be
; made to vote the Republican ticket."
! the president has not fullv do-
would have felt souien mil embarrassed
ifjho two houses of congress had
forced him to act within a limited
time by tho adoption of a joint resolu
tion, tno leaders of both parties ro :
aid to bo willing to leave the presi

will put in a Side Track lo the I'eniteii
tiury, which will also give the road n large
amount of business from their large output
of manufactured goods. The docks as
well us the land will be owned aud
controlled by the Kuilroad Company
und covered by the lirst mortgage
bonds of the Itailroud Company: the
docks will allord an opportunity to the I
harirc tows going up the river to drop off
their empty targe at the nocks of the Com
pany, to be filled with coal and taken dow 11
tho river airain on their return trip from Si.
Louis, thu saving about 200 miles of
towing from ( holer to M. l.oms ami re
turn, and a!-o s;n ing a charge of 1 per oar,
charged bv the dock" at Last St. Lorn, w here
coal is loaded on the barges at that mint.
With this connection made w ith the Missis
sippi lliver. it will give the roal miners a
most direct outlet for their products to
the Cairo. Memphis and New Orleans
markets uud sive to the shippers of
grain for the Ibrcign market n cheaper
and more direct connection with ocean
transportation lo New Orleans thau
via any other line.
Since the agrci input of the Knilro-nl Com
pany with the llanilolph Cuke and Coal Co., ;
to give them this outlet, arraii.-eineiit. have j
been made bv wvcr-.it independent parties to 1
real estate where the city of Kalama
zoo, Mich., now stands. That land
netted him a small fortune. Then he
had a country store there and made
money in that rapidly. Then he went
to Chicago and beanie a broker and real
estate dealer.
"I have heard him tell of purchas
ing a piece of real estate in Chicago
nnd paying ji5,090 for it. Tne people
thought him insane, but he sold the
same land lie- years later for cTo.OoO.
"Speaking of our poverty in Leyden
I recall that at one time uncle Oliver
was coming back to Leyden after he
had been away for a number of years
and mother wished to entertain him.
"She needed flour anil molasses aud
she sent ' Wat' to the ljcydon store for
the goods. Although her word was as
good as a bond, the merchant refused
to trust her. 'Wat- had carried a
asket of eggs, und in return for them
In' brought hack the molasses hut uo
flour.
" Mother was so put uit that she
cried at th- man's meanness. F. W.
I'nckrr, the father of Snow Packer of
Greenfield, came to the house aud saw
that mother was in trouble. He found
out what the matter was, came to

Wo hope no reader of the Post has
f. iled to read, mark, and inwardly di
gest the verified and startling report
that the city of Rutland, in the state
of Vermont, went Democratic on Tues
day last. We do not know when Kur
land was created, but it was far in the
past. For a time it was a village,
where ten chimneys smoked contig
uous to a steeple. " liut.as the ysarn
wore on, oiher chimneys rose and
smoked contiguous to other steeples.
The village grew at length into a city,
not great, but good. Its peoplo were,
and aresind wo trust they always will
be fond of the preacher an:l teacher,
lint they were not altogether exempt
from the infirmities of human nature.
Thev hail their likes ami tlieirdislikes
and stuck to them wifh a lit mures that
lers-ujoico iiui ciinonnuc piciuuim In'! i. 1 i- Inrji f, ,,,
One of iheir dislikes was democracy, ! Corn Meal
and they were so obstinate that they j oranulatcd. per bid, i.sia j le
would voic nguinsi a capame anil n.'iu- niu, 1 sua 1 .-.,; ting meal, 71 a 7'
est. I 'eiiiiM'rat anil for a liepiiblK'Uii of
doubtful antecedents to Jill a local
olhec having no legitimate connection
with politics. Therefore it eo icll out
that, in all the years ol its life prior
to this eventful year. Kutland went
Whig or Republican. Flections camo
regularly, but the turn nf the Demo
crats to carry an election came not at
all.
Iiut in this wjr'd of mutations noth
ing lasts forever. The lontrest road
has a turning, aud the darkest niaht
ends in dawn, lly patient continuance
in well-doing even Vermont Democrats
may hope for victory. The Democratic
bretberen of Rutland are happy in the
reward of their lidelity. It is an event
of "more thau local significance," ar
we aro advised by some of our Demo
cratic contemporaries. Even so con
servative a journal as the Philadelphia
Record expresses tho hoe that "the
Rutland election will prove to have
been a prophidic straw blown out by
the March winds." Why should it
not be accepted as a fair otisct for the
Philadelphia election?
