Any sarsaparilla Is sarsapa
rilla. True. So any tea is tea.
So any flour is flour. But grades
differ. Yen want the lest. It's
so with sarsaparilla. There are
grades. You want the best. If
you understood sarsaparilla as
well as you do tea and flour it
would be easy to determine.
But you don't. How should
you? When you aro going to
buy a commodity whose value
you don't know, you pick out
an old established house to
trade with, and trust their ex
perience and reputation. Do so
when buying sarsaparilla.
Aytr's Sarsaparilla has been
on the market 50 years. Your
grandfather used Aycr's. It is
a reputable medicine. There

The grand jury in the United States
district court that has been in session in
Alaska Territory for two months has
found an indictment for criminal libel
against Joseph Murray, special agent of
the United States treasury department.
Mr. Murray, at the time the alleged of
fense was committed, was United States
fish commissioner for Alaska. Ills report
to the government, it is claimed, was high
ly sensational, and Indicated that the
court, as well as Its oilicers, conspired
with the criminals of Alaska. It further
said the court and Its oilicers were afraid
to do their duty, even If they were so dis
posed. Judge Delaney, in charging the jury,
denounced all unwarranted statements
tending to prejudice tho public mind
against the morals of the people of Alaska,
and thus to keep capital from coming into
the country. He was particulatly Indig
nant at United States ollicials who have
carried unsavory tales to Washington re
garding criminals standing in with the

J. Plerpont Morgan has offered to give
$1,000,000 to the New Voik lying-in hospi
tal. Mr. Morgan's letter said In substance
that he believed a suitable building for the
use of tho hospital should be erected on
the property now owned by It, and that he
had had plans prepared for such a building,
and was prepared to erect the same at his
own expense, the building to cost about
1,000,000. The only condition attached
to tho proposed gift is that Mr. Morgan
shall have assurances that tho hospital
will have funds enough to continue its
work after the building Is completed. The
gift was promptly accepted by tho board,
which is conlldent that it can satisfy the
donor as to the one condition. The board
expects the new building will be begun at
once, and when completed it will be one of
the Quest hospitals of its kind in the world.

growing worse daily and the (light of tho
inhabitants is increasing. It Is estimated
that two-thirds of tho population of Bom

of helpless men, women and children aro
also starving. Tho famine districts, with an
aggregate population of nearly -10,000,000
must depend on charity until April at

of about oO.OOO.OOO, ate beginning to feel
the pangs of hunger. The natives In the

The returns of the foreign commerco of
tho United States for the calendar year
180(1 were completed Monday, and show
a larger volume of exports than any other
year but ono In tho history of the country,
and an excess of exports over imports
which has never been equalled. The total
exports of domestic and foreign merchan
dise were $ 1,00:,87S,'117, and tho Imports
were $OfcO,rj.,i(!,i.'3:5, creatine a favorable
balance of trade of $i525,;l22,18-l. The
largest balance ever recorded in any fiscal
year ending June. :t0 for which the re
ports are usually made was in 1870, and
amounted to only $2(U,(;ll,Sl'.(). Tho
whole exports of that year, however, were
only $71,'l;,-Ml, and the imports were
only $ll."i,777,77."i. The largest export
year in the history of tho United States
was the fiscal year of IS!'!', which showed
exports of $1,0.10,278.1 IS and a favorable
trade balance of $L0J,87i,i80. These fig

Arthur Palmer shot and killed his
brother, Leonard Palmer, at Mamaroneck,
X. Y., Monday night. He also shot Mrs.
Jessie Palmer. 70, and his sister, Gertrude
Palmer, 18. The Indications are that he
first shot his mother and sister in tho
kitchen and that his brother, Leonard,
hearing the show, went to Investigate and
was set upon by the murderer and shot
through the heart. The murderer escaped,
but a posse of armed citizens is scouring
the country in search of him. Mrs. Palmer
died within a short time, but there Is a
bare possibility that the ghl may recover.
The murderer's wife left him about two
weeks ago, and It Is supposed the man be

The New London Northern

Wllllliifiutlf mill Artv London.
The Norwich A- Worcester railroad is
to be developed as a through line for trallic
between New York, Boston, Worcester
and northern New England.
These plans Include the improvement of
plant and equipment, and the announced
extension of the Allyn's Point branch to
Groton witli connections with New Lour
don over the Thames bridge. The lattes
will have very important sequels. It given
the whole New Haven railroad system an
outlet of its own to the Sound in the re
gion of some 75 miles east and west be
tween the Connecticut river and Provi
dence, where none has existed heretofore.
It saves to the New Haven company, or
more strictly speaking, to the New Eng
land, as lessee, some $50,000 a year, which
has been paid to the Now Loudon North
ern for trallic over tho 1:1 miles between
Norwich and New London, and for wharf
privileges. It opens a new route to the
summer shore resorts of eastern Connecti
cut and western Rhode Island, and It gives
new opportunities for wharfage facilities at
Gratou or New London, which may be
very valuable, especially after the Stonlng
ton boat lino Is discontinued.
The Norwich A- Worcester is regarded as
commercially the best route for railroad
trallic between New York and northern
New England, with which it has connec
tion at Worcester by way of the Boston A
Maine and Fitchburg systems. By a link
only six miles long between Baltic and
Jewett City, the New England to Willi
mantle and beyond can be connected with
tho Norwich A- Worcester. The New
London Northern will then In clfect be
paralleled between Wlllimantic and New
London, a distance of some 30 miles. By
way of the New England the extended
Norwich A Worcester also oilers relief In
case of am pressure of freight trallic be
tween New Li'inlon and Providence over a
distance about the samo as that between
the two cities by the main line. Finally,
it offers a route between Worcester and
New York of about the same distance as
that by the Boston A Albany with which
it will, to some degree, compete. It Is pre

Wyoming's game warden Is credited with
tho statement that the number of elk win
tering in the Jackson's Hole couutry Is
greater than for many previous years. A
conservative estimate fixes the number at
30.000. Every morning thousands are
seen traveling from the great swamps
along tho Snake river to tho Gros Ventre
hills. The warden sas: "I recently
gazed upon a sight which far surpassed
anything I had ever seen, and it utterly
astonished and amazed me. For a dis
tance of six miles a herd of elk was
stretched out. Tho animals had made a
trail through the snow which was packed
as hard as Hinted ice. I know there were
15,000 head of elk In that herd."
"Why do they say 'as smart as a steel
trap'?" asked tho talkative boarder. "I
never could see anything particularly in
tellectual about a steel trap." "A steel
trap is called smart," explained Mr. As

cause It knows exactly the right time to
shut up." Cincfmmff En'iitrer.

Mrs. Anna C. Stowei: ?? South Weymouth,
Mass., In acknowledging receipt of $3,000, for
value of a policy on the life of her husband, re
cently deceased, writes State Agent James T.
Phelps as follows: "I wish to acknowledge the
Erompt settlement of the insurance under my
usband's policy 41,001, and also to take this op
portunity of expressing to the company my sin.
cere appreciation of the way In which I have been
treated. That any of my friends may understand
why I write In this way I will outline the con
dition of affairs. A premium was due on Mr.
Stowell's policy April 30, JKW. This was not paid,
and since his death we tlnd that the company
sent a teoond notice on May 7. and a third notice
stating that the Insurance had lapsed, but would
be reinstated if premium was paid and health
certitlcate given. Later still a letter conveying
the same Information was sertt, all these papers
having lieen in Mr. Stowell's possession. In a
pocket of an office coat we found a check made
by .Mr. Stowell for thU premium and dated May
5. Mr. Stowell's accident occurred June i!5. and
he died JuneiS. I!y the terms of the policy I
should have been entitled to $000, but am grate
ful that the company, while recognizing that
there is no legal claim for more ths n this amount,
have still seen fit to pay the face of the policy,
S-!,000." Tho generosity of the National Life In
paying the face-value of the policy under the
above circumstance', Is but iu keeping with Its
general policy. Women should be sufficiently
alive to their own Interests to see that their hus
bands pay the premiums on their policies when
they fall due, as companies are not onliged to pay
tbe face value of policies unless all arrears have
been pild. Mrs. Stowell's words of appreciation
are non- too strong for the kind and generous
treatment accorded her by the National Life.
