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."

The issue of bonds amounting to J.tO,

have been sold as part of this issue.
Shelburne Falls banks have accepted
some of these bonds as collateral se

that on and after April 1 ho will re

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

A monument was unveiled at Wil
mington, Del., Monday to mark the
landing place of the first Swedish set

Wilmington April 29, 1038. The dedi

Justice Lore, president of the Dela

Charles E. Mcllvaine, president of
the Delaware society of Colonial
Dames, under whose auspices the mon

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.

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.

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. A cable
message "was received from Secretary
Hay in which it was positively de
clared that President Roosevelt would

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. Mis wire sep
arated from bim some time ago and
his children were removed irom nis
care.
