THE WINDHAM COUNTY REFORMER, FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 1903.
Rescued from Suffering and Death by PAINE'S Celery Compound THE ORE AT MEDICINE. MR. ALFRED BROWN, A Prominent and Popular Citizen, Say : Aftor the Use of Palne'i Celery Compound, I Am Now In the Best ol Health." T-i... m-Antpct nf modern Dhvsicians. Prof. EiKvanlE. l'helps, M. D., LL. D., after years of long practice and close scientihc study, gave to suffering and diseased men and women his marvelous life giving prescription, with the, conviction and positive knowledge that it had ncculiar virtues and ample powers to cure. the lust known and most reliable men and women of our country fully sustain the claims made ly Tr. l'helps regarding his incompar able l'aine's Celery Compound. , ., . : r i Une ol me most ronvnu:iiig pruuis lurmsucu, comes recently from a gentleman widely known in the capital city of the Dominion of Canada. We refer to Mr. Alfred Brown, 91 O'Connor St., Ottawa, Ont. Mr. Brown's letler fully demonstrates the fact that the greatest sufferer may cast off his or her burden of disease and become well, strong, and happy. It proves, too, that the great medicine main tains more fully than ever before its unrivaled place in the estimation of people of wealth and social standing as well as with the masses. Mr. Brown says: ' 1 acknowledge with thankfulness and pleasure the fact that I have been cured of a verv painful illness of eight years' standing by 3 1 , i , r 1 t 1 i use ot lame s veiery uinyuuiiu. 1 uau, during the years of my illness, tried almost all the advertised medicines without deriving any good results. I was also treated by several of the lest doctors of this city, hoping to find that one of them, at least, would understand my case. ' 1 was getting worse, ana was 101a 1 was incurable. I was indeed m a critical condi tion. I could not go from the house alone, as I was liable to sudden collapse. I tried hospital treatment, but no relief or good results came to me. I could not sleep; anything that I ate increased my agonies; I was extremely weak, restless, tired, and despondent; was obliged to walk about with my hands pressed firmly into my left side to ease my pains; my feet and hands were cold continually; had inclination to vomit, had profuse, cold sweats, quick breathing, and would be racked with pain for hours at a time. "After the regular use of Paine's Celery Compound for a time, I am now in the best of health, have good appetite, and can use any kind of food. Thank God I am my old self jnce more, all through the use of Paine's Celery Compound." FOR TWENTY YEARS DIAMOND DYES bave lieen the standard home dye..

The grand jury at Seattle, Wash., Tuesdav, returned all the indictments which "it had voted during the past two weeks.including those against the mayor, chief of police, justices and other prominent men in the commun ity. In all 19 indictments were re turned and they are for serious crimes, malfeasance in office, failure to per form sworn duty, perjury, obtaining property by fraud and larceny by em bezzlement. Articles of merger were tiled Thurs day by the merged American Steel Hoop Co.,' National Steel Co., and Carnegie Co., Merger corporation. It is to be known as the National bteel Co. with a capital of $03,000,000. The combined capital of the old companies amounted to $252,000,000. By this merger the new corporation will save over $7,000 each year in fees paid to the state of New Jersey. All the officers are from Pittsburg. Miss Elsie Reasoner has been appoint ed eastern press representative of the St. Louis exposition, in place of the late Julian Ralph. During the Spanish-American war Miss Reasoner wrote special articles for the papers, particu larly regarding the work of the Keel Cross society. She was also for two years the Paris correspondent of the x i KVio nttondfid the cor- onation of Queen Wilhelmina as a cor respondent, ssne was press u rrvana-Mi&aisKirim exrrosl- tion at Omaha in 1898, and also visited the Pniis fair as press corresijuuucu., of the American committee.

The issue of bonds amounting to J.tO, 000 for the Davis street school at Greenfield were sold through Mr. Skinner and additional forged bonds have been sold as part of this issue. Shelburne Falls banks have accepted some of these bonds as collateral se curity for personal notes. The secretary of the treasury has re sumed refunding operations and states that on and after April 1 ho will re ceive 3 per cent bonds of 1908 and 4 per cent bonds of 1907 to the amount of $100,0000,000 to be refunded into i per cent consols on a basis of 10 L There are now outstanding about M7, 000, 000 3 per cent bonds and $2dJ,lxJ, 000 4s of 1907. This offer surprised New York bond brokers. It was gen erally looked upon as an emergency or relief measure, inasmuch as the otter will release from $5,000,000 to $8 000, 000, the amount depending entirely up on the proportion of 3s or 4s turned in. Capt. John J. Pershing, 15th U. S. Inf , who has been in command in the Moro country, says the Moros do not realize any other form of government than a one-man power. The question of slavery is intimately connected with their religion and is something of a vas salage or serfdom and is not slavery as known in this country. He thinks it is a subject that should remain un touched until it is understood better. The Moros should have a government which they can understand and it should be the policy of the United States to let it alone, but to make each sultan responsible for the acts of his PeThe'cost of federal irrigation of the arid lands of the west, according to a statement made by Secretary Hitch cock instead of being $5 an acre, as has been estimated, will not be less than S11.G6 an acre, and it is by no means certain that the expense can be kept within that figure As the cost of ir rigation is to be added pro rata to the customary $1.25 an acre charged for public lands, the Western settler will not secure the bargain he may have expected. The estimate was made from the work of private companies which was of a temporary character, while the government must do permanent work under an 8-hour labor contract, with no Mongolian labor. nother big section of the Southern Pacific's famous Lucin cutoff sank Thursday, and the quagmire in Great Salt Lake under the cutoff claimed a victim. About noon an engine was run on a completed section of the cutoff. When a half mile out in the lake the engine suddenly wobbled, the track dropped out of sight in the water and the locomotive turned a somersault and plunged into the lake. This cutoff which carries the Southern Pacific across the lake, saves 00 miles of road. Five 70 foot piles were driven on top of each other where the track sank, but they failed to hold. The Harriman en eineers are puzzled and believe they have struck bottomless quagmire on the line of the cutoff. A special grand jury is investigating charges of boodling in the state legis lature at Jefferson City, Mo. Legisla tion is said to have been corrupt in Missouri for years. The assistant recorder of the coal strike commission finds that only $38, 000 will be needed to pay the expenses of that body, although congress appro priated $50,000 for its use. Most of this is for salaries. A system of motor vehicles capable of being operated as double deckers in summer and carrying 40 passengers each will, within 90 days, be placed in competition with the Detroit Unit ed railway. The. system will be ex tended over the city and eventually out into the state. George M. Harvey, president of Har per Bros., has acquired the publishing and syndicate business of R. H. Rus sell, and Mr. Russell is to become as sociated with the house of Harper Bros. The publishing business is to go to Harper Bros, and the syndicate busi ness to a syndicate company which Col. Harvey is about to form. If present indications hold true, one of the greatest land rushes of modern date in the West will storm the Unit ed States land office in Los-Angeles, Cal., in June, when the 1, 000, 000 acres of land recently restored by the gov ernment to public domain, reaching from Mojave to the Colorado river, is thrown open to entry. The local land office is receiving nearly 200 letters a day," coming from every state in the Union. A monument was unveiled at Wil mington, Del., Monday to mark the landing place of the first Swedish set tlers in America. . The Swedes went to Wilmington April 29, 1038. The dedi catory addresses were made by Chief Justice Lore, president of the Dela ware historical society, and Mrs. Charles E. Mcllvaine, president of the Delaware society of Colonial Dames, under whose auspices the mon ument was erected. a unt..l, nt InHw.tmpnts has been jeturned in connection with the New ark, N. J., trollev disaster in wmun nine school children lost their lives when a trolley car was run down by a train on February 19. It was rumored in the court that the grand jury had found indictments against the presi dent and most of the officials of the New Jersey Street Railway company and had not indicted the mutorman and conductor of the car and the engineer of the train. A movement has been started among the western railroad managers to se cure a general decrease in the speed of the important passenger trains. Ex tremely heavy traffic, both freight and passenger, with unfavorable climatic conditions, made it practically impos sible for most of the western lines to run their trains on schedule time dur ing the fall and winter. The tines im posed by the postoffice department be cause of the failure of mail trains to make their schedules during the past six months amount to an enormous sum. Canada is to have another trans-continental railway. Its terminal will be at Quebec in the East and Port Simp son, B. C, in the West. The road will run parallel with the Canadian Pacific but will be from 200 to 400 miles far ther north, traversing the very heart of Canada through the wheat and pulp wood belt. The road will be called the Trans-Canada railway. The proposed line will shorten the distance between England and Japan and China try over 700 miles. It will also be of great strategic value in the event of war with i, , Ktntaa nr in the far East. Canada now has one trans-continental line, a second rapidly nearing comple- tion, ana iwo uuuci pvu..v. Winston Churchill, the novelist, rep resentative of the town of Cornish in the New Hampshire legislature, is now being considered by the Kepublicans as a candidate for the gubernatorial nomination in the campaign of 1904. He'is popular in the legislature, inter ested in the preservat ion of forests and in good roads. His work in the last direction resulted in calling Prof. J. W. Votey of the University of Ver mont, to inform the members of the New Hampshire legislature concerning the working of the highway law of this state. The liquor license bill became a law Friday when Gov. Uachelder fixed his official signature to it. A state license commission was appoint ed later by the governor and council. The statistical abstract of the world, under preparation by the treasury bu reau of statistics shows that the total international commerce of the world now aggregates about $21,000,000,000, of which about $10,000,01X1,000 is exports and $11,000,000,000 imports. A study of these tables presenting the imports and exports of the principal countries shows that the United States was in 1902 the largest exporter of domestic merchandise. In "favorable balance of trade, " or excess of exports over im ports, the United States also holds first rank among the nations, her excess of exports over imports being not only greater than that of any other country, but actually more, in 1901, than the total excess of exports over imports of nil nther countries whose exports ex ceeded imports. There was a grand reception at the theatre at San Juan, Porto Rico, the evening of Mar. 24 under the auspices of a citizens' committee in honor of Miss Alice Roof evelt following an elab orate display of fireworks on the plaza. Miss Roosevelt received a tremendous ovation from the people gathered on the plnza and on the balconies and roofs of the houses. One of the set pieces, representing President Roose velt, was 25 feet high. Miss Roosevelt pased two hours shaking hands with invited gues s. She left San Juan for v. ;nt.rinr Mar. 25 accompanied by Governqr Hunt and party. This party will visit uavey, ruuer, i.;euc.uu intnrmeif inte towns as well as the prin cipal sugar estates.

C, whose appointment was insisted upon by Pres ident Roosevelt in spite of senatorial objection, took charge of the customs bouse Tuesday. The chief inspector connected with the house resigned im mediately. Eighteen men were arrested at Wat erbury, Conn., Monday on the charge of assault with intent to kill, in con nection with the outbreaks of violence which . have occurred since the begin ning of the strike of motormen and conductors of the Connecticut Railway and Lighting company 11 weeks ago. Sir Chen Tung Liang-cheng, K. C. M. G. , the new Chinese minister to the United States, arrived at San Francisco Thursday on the steamer Korea. Minister Chen is accompanied by his daughter and two sons. In his suite are 53 secretaries, diplomats and legation attaches, as well as nine ser vants. The extra session of Congress will convene about Oct. 1 and is planned in the interest of the Aldricb finance bill rather than Cuba. The session will be practically continuous with that be ginning with the first Monday in De cember. In addition to the two spec ial matters, regular legislation will be taken up. The President has selected Wayne McVeagh of Pennsylvania, who was a member of the cabinet of President Garfield, to represent the United States at The Hague when the arbitration tribunal considers the question of pref erential treatment as between the al lied and the non-allied powbrs having claimj) against Venezuela. Nearly all of the.city of La Grange, Miss., is submerged by the back water from the crevasse. Business is paral yzed and people are moving about the streets in the southern section in skiffs, but danger of destruction to the city or loss of life is not probable. Relief parties with boats have been at work rescuing people in the path of the flood. The flood situat ion remains practically unchanged. The waters have covered thousands of acres of fine delta farms and are sweeping south to Yicksburg. Extensive preparations are making for the dedication of 19 monuments by the state of Indiana on the battle field ofSbiloh, Tennessee, April 0 and 7, the 41st anniversary ol the great name at that place. The governors of Indi ana and Tennessee together with mili tia from those states will take part in the ceremonies. Assistant Secretary Sanger of the war department will rep resent the secretary of war, who will be unable to attend, and will accept the monuments on behalf of the federal government. In an interview, printed in the New ark, N. J., News last week, Admiral George Dewey made comparisons be tween the United States navy, which he pronounced the greatest in the world, and the German navy. He be lieved the latter's efficiency was great ly overestimated, and said the Carib bean manoeuvres were a great object lesson to the world, especially to the Kaiser. He believed theTahama ca nal could be easily blocked in time of war. A great stir was created in Wash ington by the publication of the inter view and President Roosevelt sum moned the outspoken admiral fur a talk on the subject. Admiral Dewey disclaimed any intention of hostile criticism of Germany and said that the statements he made oppeared in differ ent form from what he expected. G. F. Swift, (53, president of the Swift Packing Co., died at Chicago Sunday of internal hemorrhage. He began "his career as a butcher and died leaving a fortune estimated at from $7,000,000 to $10,000,000. In 18 j 7, he planned the first refrigerator car and dressed meats, instead of live animals, were shipped to eastern cities. He was the pioneer in this kind of business. From the small plant started in 1877 has developed a great corporation with branches in St. Louis, Kansas City, St. Joseph, Mo., Omaha, St. Paul and Fort Worth, Tex., and with distribu ting offices in every important city and town in the United States, and with representatives in the leading, cities in Europe, Asia and Africa. Its employ ees number 22,(507. Upon its capital stock of $25,000,000 the sales of 1903 exceeded $200,000,000. The verdict in the Burdick inquest at Buffalo declared that the identity of the murderer had not been proved. It considered the acts and letters of Ar thur R. Pennell suspicious, especially the letter containing a threat against Burdick's life.constituting just ground of suspicion on which a warrant could be issued were he alive. Mrs. Hull's testimony was thought to show that her actions tho morning after the mur der were inconsistent with a want of knowledge as to what hod really oc curred. Pennell's motive, of all others, was said to be strong enough to incite a desperate mind to so cruel a murder, but, being dead, he can never be tried and should be presumed innocent un til proven guilty. No single immoral act on Burdick's part was disclosed. Mrs. Burdick was censured but "great as her wrong has been, great Is her punishment. Three separate reports on the reci procity treaty with the United States were presented to the Cuban senate Friday by the foreign relations com mittee. One reported the approval or all the amendments adopted by the ITniterl States senate. Another was against the ratification on account of the action of the United States senate in confining the 20 per cent, reduction in the duty on Cuban sugar to the basis of tbe'taritf rates in the law of 1897 and the third was an adverse re port upon all the amendments. Both the minority reports were rejected by the senate and the majority report was taken up for discussion. The treaty, as amended by the senate, was ap proved in the Cuban senate Saturday night by a vote of 12 to 9.

Not So Destitute in Finland-Great Strike Riot in Russia-Republican Demonstration in Spain-Anthracite Exploring Party-Suicide of Popular British General-Bulgarian Cabinet Resigns. Severe earthquake shocks were felt at Jerusalem Monday morning. The population was panic stricken but the damage was slight. The empress of Germony was thrown from her horse while on a hunting trip at Gunewald Thursday and ber right arm was fractured. . . Revolutionary agitation is spreading dangerously in the vilayet of Kossovo, European Turkey. It is reported that Russia is aiding the movement. The pope will bold a consistory about May 1 for the appointment of bishops. Some cardinals may be created, but there is nothing definite in regBrd to foreigners. The Earl of Rosebery's eldeBt daugh ter, LBdy Sybil, was married at Epsom Saturday morning to Lieut. C. J. C. Grant of the Coldstream guards, son of Lieut. Gen. Sir Robert Grant. Not to be outdone in diplomacy by Emperor William of Germany, the sul tan bf Turkey has asked Miss Alice Roosevelt, the daughter of President Roosevelt, to christen the Ottoman cruiser Medjidia when that vessel is launched at Cramps' shipyard early in May. At a meeting of 5000 republicans at Madrid, Spain. Thursday, it was an nounced that 20,000 farm laborers had joined the party. Prof. Salmevon, the leader, declared in a speech that he should begin the work of establishing a republic in Spain immediately. A great republican demonstration fol lowed the meeting. A great strike riot, accompanied by much bloodshed, has occurred at the town of Slatousk, Russia, in the gov ernment of Oofa, among . the Ural mountains. Twenty-eight persons were killed and 50 others were wounded. The strike started in the state iron works, where 500 men walked out, de manding the release of three of their comrades who had been arrested. The entire Bulgarian cabinet has re signed, owing to inability to find any one who will accept the portfolio of war until the cabinet can agree to the army appropriations. It was the min istry's refusal to do this which caused the resignation Mar. 8 of Maj. Gen. Paprikoff, the former minister of war, bis colleagues having rejected his re quest for a credit of $1,000,000 for the purchase of war material. A revolutionary band of 31 men and inhabitants of the village of Abalitche, near Istib, Macedonia, have been mas sacred by the Bashi Bazouks. The band was'surrounded in the village, ar tillery was brought up, and after ten hours' fighting the village was com pletely razed and burned and all the inhabitants without distinction were massacred. The Turkish losses are re lrted to have been even greater than those of the other side. The dash from New Zealand toward the South Pole made by Capt Scoee, of the antartic exploring ship Discov ery was attended by great hardships. The soft snow told quickly on his dogs, which all died. The party had only a month's provisions when it left the southernmost depot, and it was impos sible to continue south of latitude 82. li without inviting disaster. The return was most trying. The party was on short rations for five days, and its pro gress was seriously impeded by fog. Lieut, Shackleton burst a blood vessel in one lung, and only his pluck pulled him through. The men of this Dis covery a crew nave agea nowceauiy, owing to hard living, but they Bre well and cheerful. A representative of the Finnish na tional relief committee has made a tour of Finland and denies the story that 5,000 destitute persons can be found in one parish. In 50 poor cottages visit ed, plenty of bread and supplies of flour were found. The committee, which has been largely helped by American funds, has branches in every village and parish and every case of suffering discovered is carefully attended to. Po tatoes and milk are scarce, but the committee supplies sufficient bread, eas and salt fish, while carefully avoiding making the people more com fortable than in ordinary years, and exacts labor in payment for its help, wherever possible, so as to avoid pau perizing the people. As to the stories of death from famine, no such happen ings have been reported anywhere. During last week southwestern Eu rope and the larger part of the British Isles have enjoyed remarkable warmth and sunshine. The temperature in London Thursday night was 04 degrees, eclipsing the record. The temperature in France, also, has been remarkably high. It has varied from 70 to 90 de grees at Biarritz, which is in about the same latitude as Nova Scotia, compell ing the residents to wear summer cloth ing. Similar conditions prevail on the Riveria. Abbe Moreux, a prominent French astronomer, connects the phe nomena with an enormous sun spot 00, 000 kilometres in diameter, which he has observed in the last few days, and to a number of smaller sun spots, which indicate that some disturbance is caus ing the sun to emit unwonted heat He predicts that the Aurora Borealis will be seen in the next few nights. Sir Hector MacDonald, commander of the British troops in Ceylon, and one of the most gallant and popular generals in the British army, com mitted suicide Mar. 25 by blowing out his brains in bis room in the Hotel Regina. Paris. MacDonald arrived in Paris Saturday, after having had a conference with the war office chiefs in London on the subject of charges of gros immorality made against him in Ceylon. The army chiefs advised him, it is asserted, to leave the country ond never return nor seek to regain his post. After reading in the French papers the account of the charges against him, MacDonald went up to his rrwim. stood in front of a mirror and put a bullet through his temple. A change is said io nave come over MacDonald in the past few years. His rnrlr in South Africa was more or less a failure and he finally left it under a cloud which is attributed to the fault in his moral character.
