The guests are gone the smile slips from the face of the hosteik and she gives up to the pain which racks her body. Many woman entertains and wears a smile while her back aches and her nerves quiver with pain. Surely any medicine which offers relief to women would be worth a trial under such conditions. But when the woman's medicine, Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, is offered with the proof of efficacy in thousands of well attested cures, what excuse can then be offered for suffering longer?

Barnstable, Mass., Friday, under three counts of murder in the first de gree. She is chaiged with causing the death of Allan 1 Davis and his daughters, Mrs. Gordon and Mrs. Gilibs of Cataumet, by the adminis tration of morphine and atropia. Miss Toppan pleads not guilty and was in a state of collapse when arraigned. The alleged motive for the murders is money. More than 300 murders have come before the military authorities of the Philippines most of which are fero cious ones, showing a propensity to beat women, children and sick men, and to deal savage blows with clubs, stones and other blunt instruments. Sometimes the victim is bound and hacked to pieces with the deadly bolo. A favorite species of diabolical murder seems to be burying victims alive. No murderer has, as yet, been executed. A flow of pure cold water has been discovered in the very heart of the fa mous "Desert of Death" which ex tends in one direction from Oklahoma almost to California, and is the most arid waste in the United States. It is from an artesian well, and was made in boring for oil, and will be more valuable than if oil had been struck, as the finding of well water means the irrigation of the miles and miles of waste and the probable reclamation of the ground to agriculture.

There was a Hood of bills in tho Houso Friday among them one to create the Mckinley national park and forest reserve of 4,000,000 acres of tim ber land in the Appalachian range in tho states of Tennessee, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Geor gia and Alabama at a cost of 810,000, 000. Senator Pritchard had introduced a bill calling it the Appalachians na tional park, with an area of 2,500,000 acres, costing $5,000,000. In tho Senate a favorable report on tho new Hay-Paunceforte treaty was unanimously ordered although consid erable opposition arose from the fact that the treaty contains a clause applying the Suez canal rules provid ing for neutralization. The new treaty is summed up by President Roosevelt as follows: In this treaty tho old Clayton-Bulwer treaty, so long recognized as inade quate to supply the base for the con struction and maintenance of a neces sarily American canal, is abrogated. It specifically provides that the United States alone shall do the work of building and assume the responsibility of safeguarding the canal and shall regulate its neutral use by all nations on terms of equality without the guar antee or interference of any outside nation from any quarter. The treaty was sent into the Senate by the presi dent Wednesday. Tho estimated cost of the canal is 180.S(;4,Ot;2 and the time of construction eight years. The isth mian commission's report favors the Nicaraguan route which must be by locks; Lake Nicaragua furnishing an inexhaustible supply of water, but no natural harbors. Two bills loaking to the construction of the canal by this route have been introduced in the Senate. Some of the isthmian com mission favored the Panama route as superior from an engineering and physical point of view and because, for geographical reasons, a canal at Panama would involve fewer political 'complications in tho future with l Latin-American states. These mem- i bers finally decided to make the report ! unanimous in favor of the Nicaragua j route because of the excessively high price demanded for the plant and good will of the Panama canal company. The Senate was not in session Satur , day. In the House the committees on j Ways and Means, Appropriations and Enrolled Bills were announced by .Speaker Henderson: a bill to pension !

What England's King and Queen Will Wear at the Coronation The Chinese Viceroy Wants Control of Tien-Tin-The Koyal Scandal in Holland -The Prince of Wales an Orator. The British captured three laagers and 250 prisoners in the Transvaal Fri day, the largest, capture in many months. King Edward has definitely fixed Juno 20 as the date of the coronation. The festivities will include an immense naval demonstration to which each power will be asked to send a ship Hy ing an admiral's flag. Halju, one of the principal agents of the ex-president of tho Macedonian commitees has been arrested at Sofia for connection with the kidnapping of Miss Stone. Further reports of the death of Miss Stone and Mme. Tsilka j have been circulated and denied. Tho Prince of Wales made a speech n Guildhall last week that raised him j higher in the people's esteem than any .previous action. He declared that the !old country must wake up if it wanted I to hold its ow n, and he spoke earnest -1 ly and simply, without the usual plat j it iiili-s of royal utterances. j M. Eilmond Hostand has a Christmas ; carol in the Paris newspapers which ; appeals to the children of all countries t to give some of their Christinas gifts to the Boer children in the concentra tion camps of South Africa. The poem 'says: "Their Father Christmas is not ;aa old man witti Kind eyes, out a spec tre. He brings not in his transparent hands toys and sweetmeats, but little 'collins of different sizes." The members of the Chamber at The Hague, Holland, denounce the action of the British in confiscating the i Dutch Ked Cross outfit outside of Pre toria and imprisoning the staff on the island of Ceylon. They say it is con trary to the Geneva convention. The ! government has frequently demanded that the Netherlander be released on I parole, but Great Britain is not I obliged to release them until after the i close of the war. ! The principal object of the visit to ! Pekin of Yuan Shi Kai, the new vice 1 roy of China, who reached there last week, is to induce the foreign powers to relinquish their control of the irov i eminent of Tien-Tsin. Yuan Shi Kai has assured all the miniMcrs of the foreign powers at Pekin that he is per sonally able and willing to maintain ! order at Tien-Tsin and in the prov ince. The majority of the foreign rep resentatives insist that the jiowers I should retain control of Tien-Tsin until the re-establishment of the Chi nese court at Pekin. j August Bebel, the socialist leader, ! made a great sensation in the German : Reichstag last week, during the tariff ! debate. He declared that the bill fo- j ments insurrection, and said there ! -were two nations in the German state' the plunderers and the plundered and j he was speaking for the latter. As the representative of 2.SUO.O0O voters, hoi lodged the socialist protest against the "hunger duties," as he called the tariffs on grain and assured his oppon- ; ents that "we shall do oui utmost to i send this bill to hades, and we only: regret we cannot send its authors and j abettors there also. " At the coronation. King Edward will j wear a cloth-of-gold under-jacket, em broidered with palm branches and the shamrock, rose and thistle. On the king's stole, the cross of St. George, . the royal crown and the rose, sham- j rock and thistle will be woven in gold i thread. His cape will be a inagniri- ! cent garment, decorated with silver eagles and tleur de lys and the national tloral emblems. Over three thousand precious stones, diamonds, pearls, rubies, sapphires and emeralds, will be included in his crown. There will he l.'lOO pure white diamonds and 1270 rose diamonds. The historic ruby which the King of Castile gave to the Black Prince in bit!", and which was subsequently worn by Henry V at Agincourt, is in the centre of the crown, placed in the heart of a maltose cress. The queen will wear robes al most exactly similar to those worn by Queen Adelaide, of black velvet, man ufactured on hand looms, elaborately embroidered and laced, having gold trimmings with huge hanging sleeves. The coronation rites will last four hours. There have been many contradictory stories in connection with the domes tic troubles of Queen Wilhelmina of Holland this week. It is said that she reproved the prince at dinner for some hreach of manners, he had been drinking and responded insultingly and struck her, wheieupon her aide de camp interfered with the result that a duel with swords was fought in which the IDA L.
