A Brattle boro citizen gratefully a knowledges the good received from Doan's'Kiduey Pills, and when time has tested the cure we lind the same hearty endorsement, with added enthusiasm and continued praise. Cases of this kind are plentiful in the work of Doan's Kidney Pills, and such a record is unique lu the annals of medicine. Jos. J. Whitney, now retired from active business, residence North Main St., says: "If I did not positively think and had good .rea sons on which to base my belief, 1 would not recommend lhe use of Oban's Kidney I'ills al the present time, neither would I have pub licly endorsed them In 1897.

The second trial of Roland B. Moli neus for the murder of Mrs. Kate Adnms at New York will not be held until next fall. The first three weeks of the Pennsyl vania miners' strike has cost ?H,8."i0, 000 including losses to miners, other employees, operators and business men. The Vaiiui Indians nre again on the warpath, having killed a ranchman and his servant in Arizona and raided and robbed several ranches. The sit uation is said to lie serious. Cholera is prevalent in the Philip pines. The deaths of Captain Russell of the army and Lieutenant Rask of the marine corps,' recently, makes the situation one of greatest gravity. The members of the French Rocham beau Mission, spent the last day of their stay in America in Boston, sail ing on the Gaulois Sunday. Saturday they received a welcome from the state of Massachusetts, the City of Boston and Harvard university. The grand jury which has been in vestigating St. Louis municipal cor ruption reports that at no place in the world and at no t ime known to his tory has so much official corruption been uncovered. These revelations have been so appalling as to be almost be yond belief. " Decoration day was more generally observed in Washington than ever be fore. The principal exercises were held at Arlington, and included a pa rade, a national salute, music by ma rine band and memorial choir, and a general decoration of graves. Presi dent Roosevelt delivered an oration followed by Gen. Eli Torrance, commander-in-chief of the G. A. R. After the exercises a monument in memory of Col. Edgar O'Counor of Wisconsin was unveiled. Cable advices from Rome indicate that Archbishop Keane of Dubuque may succeed the late Archbishop Cor rigan in the diocese of New York. The pielate named has been of distin guished service to his church. He is of Irish birth and is Ci vears of age. In 1897 he resigned the rectorship of the Catholic university at Washington to make a visit to Rome. On his re turn, in ltXX), he received his present charge. He has been active in the formation of Catholic societies. Heavy fighting at Hocas del Toro last week is reported from Colombia. The revolutionists are said to have mined the town of Bocas, and while the government troops were marching into Bocas to recapture it, the mines were exploded and almost all the gov ernment soldiers were killed. The rev olutionists still remain in possession of Bocas. Colon and Panama are the only towns on the Isthmus which are now in the control of the government, and troops are being poured into these two ports with the hope of stemming the revolutionary advance. A large meteorite fell Friday night near Whalerock Light off the Xarra- gansett shore, R. I., and exploded with such force that the detonation was heard two miles away. Another big meteorite fell in St,' Louis last week, apparently composed of iron and impregnated with sulphur. A question has been raised in regard to the sev eral recent so-called meteorites as to whether they are volcanic stone hurled out of MontPelee, Martinique, thrown above the atmosphere surrounding the earth, and finally coming back within the confines of the laws of gravitation and falling to the earth. Passengers from Guatemala arriving at San Francisco say 1-UHJ dead were taken from the ruins of Quesaltenango, destroyed by earthquake. Reports of loss and damage on the colfee phnta tions double the total reported. The total runs into a million. Tapecuchu- j la is a city of about 10.000 reonle. ! The damage is estimated at 200,000. San Marcosa, town near Quesalten ango, was also destroyed. There were 140 prisoners in jail, and every man was killed, crushed am) bruised under the falling walls.

More engineers, firemen and pump runners have joined the Pennsylvania miners in their strike and the mines are filling with water. Although crowds assemble about the mines it is compar atively quiet in the whole mining re gion. John F. Jewell of Galena, 111., was examined Tuesday at the State depart ment at Washington to ascertain his fitness to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Consul Prentiss at St. Pierre, Martinique. His nomination was sent to the Senate Wednesday. The teamsters' strike in Chicago was marked Monday by a series of bloody fights on the streets in which many people were badly hurt. Stones and sticks were used by the mob and clubs and revolvers by the police. The riots were caused by attempts to move meat from the packing house plants to the distributing stations downtown. The American Lecture direction has brought suit to recover .10,000 dam ages from Miss Ellen M. Stone for al leged breach of contract to lecture un der their management in regard to her experiences in captivity. lhe alleged contract, under which Miss Stone was to deliver 100 lectures, was made March 22. She is now lecturing under a sub sequent agreement made with Major Pond. Wednesday was another day of battle in Chicago between the rioting teams ters and the police. The mob with sticks and stones fought the drivers of the beef packers' wagons and were only kept in check by the pistols of the police. More than a dozen battles were fought during the day between the rioters and police, and the hospitals at night were overcrowded with the in jured. Four persons were burned to death in a fire that swept away two large blocks at Rockawny Beach, N. Y. , Tuesday morning. Twenty other per sons were injured and seven hotels were destroyed, beside other buildings. It was on the eve of the openiug of the resort for the summer, started from the range in the kitchen of Knsten's hotel. Tha property loss was ja-xyxxi. The skeletons of five Indians were unearthed at Kingston, Mass., last week by cottage builders. The bodies were thrown together and are believed to have been those of victims of the great smallpox epidemic among In dians of southeastern Massachusetts over 2.VJ years ago. Near the old Kingston wharf a stone fireplace, with well preserved charred firewood was found buried four feet deep. Two men were killed, six persons se verely hurt and a dozen or more slight ly injured by the runaway automobile racer of W. C. Baker of Cleveland, (., at Grasmere, Staten Island, Saturday where automobile speed tests were be ing made, under the auspices of the Automobile club of America, to break Iks ..n.d.l'a ru,.nr.l tnr o mllu ! HiaH Baker and his assistant machine wnen it got away control. They were arrested but exon erated from blame by a coroner's jury Monday who called the accident "an unavoidable-' one. The coroner wit nessed the accident and said no one should be blamed for running an au tomobile at a speed of 70 miles an hour through a narrow lane of people as long as a permit had been obtained from the police. The grand jury will investigate and it is probable that ac tion will be taken against the Cleve land company, manufacturers of the freak machine and the Automobile club of America. It, is also probable that the city will be sued for heavy dam ages by the relatives of the dead men and by those injured. PROCEEDINGS OF CONGRESS WHAT IT HAS BEEN DOING THIS WEEK Naval Operations in Philippines Cost $20,000, 000 to Date Polish and Prussian Heroes to Be Honored With Bochambeau Amend ments to the Philippine Government Bill Gen Buencamino's Testimony for the Army -Congress Thanks Secretary Hay for His HcKinley Memorial Address. During the discussion of the Philip pine bill in the Senate Thursday an amendment, extending to the Philip pines the provisions of the bill of rights of the constitution of the Unit ed States, excepting the right to bear arms and to a trial by jury, was agreed to. The House passed the bill to in crease the subsidiary silver coinage, and adopted the conference reports on the omnibus public building and for tifications appropriation bills. The Senate Monday debated the Phil ippine government bill uiider the 15 minute rule. Its provision lelatingto franchises was amended so as to pro hibit corporations from employing per sons held in slavery or involuntary ser vitude. A new section was added pro viding that the treasury of the Philip pine government shall lie a depository for such public money as the secretary of the treasury may direct. During the debate Senator Proctor of Vermont made a spirited defense of the Ameri can army from attacks that have been made on it. To offset the testimony of Gen. Felipe Buencamino, formerly Aguinaldo's secretary of war, who takes the side of the army and the civil government under Judge Taft against the reports of cruelty and bad manage ment, Mr. Patterson of Colorado read the address of Buencamino to the Unit ed States Senate urging the granting of independence to the Filipinos, "thereby bringing to an end thiscruel and wicked war. " Gen. Buencamino has been testifying this week before congressional committees. The House bv a vote of 11!) to 40 adopted a joint resolution extending the thanks of Congress to Secretary of State John Hay for his address on the occasion of the McKinley memorial exercises. This resolution had met with some opposition on the ground that Mr. Hay had abused the occasion by injecting a "Republican stump speech" into the address. 1 he beuatu Tuesday passed the Lodge FROM ACROSS THE WATER.

The real motive of M. Waldeck-Rous-aeau in resigning as premier of the French cabinet is said to be in order to obtain a free hand in the formation of a future cabinet, which, it is thought, events may force in six mouths. The Boxers are active in -the prov ince of Sze Chwan, China. They have warned the officials of Yang-Hsien of their intention to exterminate the for eigners, and thev have destroyed Cath olic and Protestant churches, killed and robbed people and are enrolling members in every village. Troops have been dispat-'hed to suppress the rebel lion. Famine is causing great misery and many deaths in several districts of Corea ; 41.323 persons are on the verge of starvation in North Chulti prov ince.

Volcanic eruptions from Mont Pelee continue in great outbursts at inter vals of a few days. The people are greatly alarmed but no seriou3 damage is done outside the district first devas tated. Scientists and newspaper men have risked their lives in accomplish ing tne feat of ascending to tne crater of Mont Pelee and have each in turn i received due space in the columns of the newspapers.

The Co- lima volcano in Mexico is greatly in creasing in the activity of its erup tions and serious consequences are feared. Colima has alwmt 1500 inhabi tants, and the people fear that the crater of the volcano might burst, and the lava from it bury the city. The last, eruption of the volcano was in 1SS0, but the damage was slight. Ever since the eruption of Pelee Mount Colima has been much affected. Mount Blackburn in southeastern Alaska, a supjiosed harmless mountain, is re ported to nave been in eruption May 11, throwing forth a cloud of dust and rock. The country for miles around was affected. Mount Redoubt, north west of Cook's Inlet, Alaska, has been spouting fire and brimstone for the last two months but the heaviest blow out occurred May 3 when flames shot into the air for hundreds of feet. The houses and ground at Kenai, 00 miles distant, were covered with erav ashes. Natives of the section are greatly alarmed. in Xew England. Grass The condition of grass is gen erally more favorable than it was last week, and the feed in pastures is im proving, especially in the northern por tion. Clover that was somewhat in jured by frost, has taken a new start and now bids fair to make a good crop. Old fields are somewhat thin and a small yield is to be expected from them.
