SONS OF VERMONT. A New Vlaw or Oaway'i GraaliKia. Admiral Dewey is now fljen in a different, light from that which had surrounded him since his brilliant victory iu Manila bay. It can bo said without reservation that in bis posi tion as president of one 'f the most celebrated naval courts of inquiry lie has met expectations ns fully as he did at Manila. 11 is rulings have been characterized by absolute fairness and show biui to be clear-headdd and of a judicial turn of mind. CoULsel on both sides take occasion outride of court to comment upon the ability and im partiality with which tbe mi mi nil conducts the court. His colleagues, Koar-Admirul lienbam and Knar-Admiral Hum say, are also popular and praised by counsel. This comment, which is h'urd in the lunch and retiring-rooms during recess of the court warrants the assumption that what ever verdict is brought in will not be questioned by either sice. All feel confidence in the good judgment and impartiality i f tin court. Wash ington Despatch to Philadelphia Press. MATTERS AND TillKuS FHOM VARIOUS VIEW POINTS. Ilr Wcblt'a Hrlsht Pronprili.

Brakot of Petrolea, Ontario, Canada, writes: "Four years ago I bad a severe attack of Bright' s Dis ease, which brought me so low the doctor said nothing more could he done for me. I began to take Peruna and Manalin, and In three months I was a well man, and have continued so ever since. "J. Brake. At the appearance of the first symptom Of kidney trouble, Peruna should be taken. This remedy strikes at once the Tery root of the disease. It at once re lieves the catarrhal kidneys of the stag nant blood, preventing the escape of serum from the blood. Peruna stimu lates the kidneys to excrete from the blood the accumulating poison, and thus prevents the convulsions which are sure to follow if the poisons are allowed to remain. It gives great vigor 10 m hrart's action and digestive system, both of which are apt to fail rapidly in this disease. Peruna cures catarrh of the kidneys First Wis consin Caval ry regiment, writes from iZr Punning St., Chicago, 111., the following letter: For years I suffered with catarrh ol the kidneys contracted In the army. Medicine did not help me any until a comrade who had been helped by Pe runa advised me to try It. I bought Eome at once, and soon found blessed relief. I kept taking it four months, and I am now well and strong and feel better than I have done for the past twenty years, thanks to Peruna."' T. H. Mars.
