On his mother's side Mr. Howell Is related tj Ambassador Tower of the German court, to Henry Ward Beecher and to Harriet Beecher Stowe and through his father's family with the late Admiral John Howell, with Clark Howell, editor of the Atlanta "Constitution and with the wife of Jefferson Davis. Mr. Howell's grandfather was Fhllo Tower and the family came from Pennsylvania. This Mr. Tower married the cousin of the great Beecher. Mrs. Howell, mother of the Ne- braskan, now lfves Jn Detroit. The Howell family was a New Jorsey product and, di viding, one branch went south, becoming the Howells of Atlanta, Ga., and the other branch moving to Bath, N.

The Van Bants, before they had broken away from the habit of writing It Z, came from Holland, and settled In New Jersey for some reason hard to explain, as they formed no trust at the time. When the men of this family have not been shipbuilders they have been preachers.

"Well," calmly rejoined Tils mother, "what good will that do her?" Harry was silent for c moment, then said: I s'pose It won't do her no good at all unless she swallows a buttonhole, too." The parts played by their respective grandfathers in the civil war were being depicted by two of the boys in vivid colors. The career of each. It seemed, had been halted by confinement In southern prisons, and it waa on the latter fact that the lads laid particular stress. The third youth, unable to match these recitals with any military achievements of his own fore father), preserved an envious silence for a while, and then, not to be outdone, said, disparagingly: "Why. that's not so much. My Uncle Bill waa in Jail a long time and ha waa never la tlie army at all." Lung Troubles, Throat Troubles, Asthma, The Milks' Emulsion Co., Terre Haute, Ind.: Gentlemen Something like a year ago my daugh ter 'was taken with a bad cough. It seemed to grow worse and, after trying all the different cough medi cines we consulted a physician, who pronounced it con sumption. We consulted other physicians and they all claimed my daughter's lungs were badly affected and seemed to bold out no hope for her. Finally, hearing of Milks' Emulsion, we sent for some and it gave her Immediate relief. We were delighted and as she continued its use we could see her grow strong and well again. It was a godsend to us and we can not speak too highly of it. Yours respectfully, J, Magsb, Conceaut, Ohio. The Milks' Emulsion Co., Terre Haute, Ind.: Gentlemen In the past year I have doctored a great deal, taking cough and consumption cures, but without results, until I got a bottle of Milks' Emul sion, which gave me instant relief. I have had a hack ing cough and stomach trouble combined and your Emulsion has benefitted me more than all other rem edies put together. I take great pleasure in recom mending it to all who suffer from any lung or stomach trouble, aa I think Milks' Emulsion 'has no equal for all that you claim for it.

PRESENT APPEARANCE OF BATTLEFIELD Aptltnde af the Hotel Keepers Near the Scene of the Conflict la Snp- plying; tha Demand for Aathentle SonTenlrs. Waterloo and lace are the two great at tractions that draw thousands of tourists to Brussels every year. There are, of course, other objects worthy of attention in the capital of the little Belgian kingdom. Its wide boulevards, handsome parks and artistic buildings are reminiscent of Farls, so much so that the term "le petit Paris" has been generally accepted as descriptive of the beauties of Brussels. . "Don't talk to me about old guild houses," was the remark of an American woman. "I saw nothing In Brussels but lace, lace, laco everywhere. I dreamed of It at night and I priced more lace collars than I could wear in a lifetime, thereby encountering the frown of many a pretty shop girl aa I retired with my money in my purse." All the inducements for the depletion of tourists' funds, however pale before the blandishments of the omnipresent hotel porter, and the Brussels hotel seem to be peculiarly well equipped with Individuals whose chief business It la to devise methods to'Yelltve travellers of their money. "There's a fine concert In the park to night, too grand to miss. Here are a few reserved seat tickets for one franc each," was the first effort of one of these zealous doorkeepers upon a small American party on the first night of their arrival in Brus sels. "What's the music?" exclaimed the man of the party. "No, we don't like music; never listen to It." . "Then perhaps you'd like tickets for a ride around the town In one of Cook's wagons. I have tickets for the trip to morrow." "No, thanks; we're traveling for pleas ure; don't care much about seeing any thing," was the unfeeling reply. At last, however, the tourists rewarded the ninety-ninth bow of this amnslng. If at times troublesome, hotel official, by secur ing tickets from him for tha coach ride to Waterloo. They were paid for on delivery, but a parting evidence of the porter's commercial acumen waa to come when the price of the tickets was found charged in the bill, and it was only by dint of fierce argument that tha error waa finally admitted. Ways of Reaching the Battlefield. There are three' ways of reaching the battlefield of Waterloo, by rail, by steam tram car or by coach. Tha trip by coach Is decidedly preferable, as one gets an ex cellent opportunity to see the country and observe farm and village life In Belgium. It Is seldom difficult to secure seats, for If tha one regular and stylish coach la filled, two old-fashioned yahicioa of ample dimen CB" gJ The Milks' Emulsion Co., Terre Haute, Ind.i Gentlemen Some time ago a friend recommended Milks' Emulsion as an excellent remedy for colds. My wife having a cold at the time, I bought a box, which relieved her immediately. We noticed on the label that it was good for stomach trouble and constipa tion. Being very much afflicted in that way myself, I started to use your Emulsion, which gave me imme diate relief. I have used three' boxes all told and it affords me pleasure to say that Milks' Emulsion is the only sure remedy that I have ever taken for stomach trouble and constipation and that I cannot recom mend it too highly.

" Evansville, Ind. will refund your money Sf you do sions will be brought Into service. It Is always an attractive sight to see the coach as It leaves the Place Royal to the mu sical echoes of the horn aa the farewell blast is blown, but when the three coaches are In line there Is always a big crowd on hand to cheer the departing visitors. The , field of Waterloo Is about twelve miles from Brussels, and the coach fare thore and back Is surely reasonable enough, 7 francs, about $1.40, with an extra franc for the driver. This, of course, does not Include the table d'hote lunch at the bust ling Museum hotel, where tha coaches stop preparatory to a partial inspection of the field; neither does It assist In reducing the numerous half-franc admissions which oc cur so frequently as to causa wonder and consternation to those not possessing a comfortably filled pocketbook. ( If tha road to Waterloo, after leaving the park, were only as comfortable to the body as, the beauties of nature are to tho eye, the limit of perfection , would be reached. Every foot of the road, except a narrow strip at one side, is paved, and with such large, rough stones aa to oc casion such a prodigious amount of Jolt ing that the mere memory of It Is a misery. It Is, therefore, a grateful relief to . tho passengers to clamber down from their seats and enjoy the freedom of pedestrians when the driver pulls up for his first stop at an unprepossessing looking inn In tha picturesque village of Waterloo. This Inn, moreover, Is the first war museum that tha tourist encounters, and, although ha may refuse the liquid refreshment that a bustling Frenchwoman stands ready to provide, ho cannot gracefully escape the payment of his first extra half-franc for tha Inspection of Waterloo souvenirs. The battle was fought from three to five miles beyond, but tha village of Waterloo has given Its name to that momentous struggle of June 18, elphty-nlne years ago, because it was . tha duke of Wellington's headquarters, previous to' tha battle, and many of his letters and dispatches were sent from this inn. On that account It Is one of those places which must be seen when doing the. battlefield. The museum consists of two rooms im mediately over the ground floor. One Is very small and contains nothing of inter est. The ether is considerably larger. Bcores of old muskets, sabers, and otiier destructive weapons are suspended from the walls. In glass cases, amid a Jumble of minor relics, are two or three skulU and a number of small bones ploughed up in 1&6. gruesome reminders. Indeed, of that fearful carnage that has made the year of 1815 memorable. All these, how ever, are of secondary Interest, compared to the three great relics in the room two old bedsteads and one miserably tattered armchair. The latter was the duke of room, and a small desk Is also shown Wellington's chair when he occupied the which is said 'to have been used by him. The duke slept in one of the beds pre vious to the battle, although not on the eve of the conflict, for he was at the fa mous ball given by the countess of Rich mond in Brussels. Upon tha other bed Colonel Sir Alexander Gordon, one of Eng land's most popular officers, died, a few hours after being brought, mortally wounded, to the house. Colonel Gordon waa a brother of the earl of Aberdeen, and the day after the battle the duke wrote a, very touching letter to the earl, inform. Ing him of his brother death, adding! ''He 9 The Milks' Emulsion Co., Terre Haute, Ind.: Gentlemen In December I was taken with a severe case of la grippe, which brought on the worst cough I ever had, and for four weeks I was under doctor's care. Part of the time I was not able to leave the house. My physician said it would be a wonder if I staved off pneumonia. This frightened me and, remembering some very strong testimonials I had seen in a Terre Haute paper about Milks' Emulsion cufing so many cases like mine, I decided to send for a box. I received it at about 6 o'clock in the evening, took three doses before retiring and in two hours' time I could fesl my chest loosen up, and by the next morning the soreness had all left me and in two or three days I was entirely well and attending to business. I feel that I cannot say too much for Milks' Emulsion, as I believe It to be a truly wonderful remedy. Very truly yours, J. C. Daily, Mgr. Republic Oil Co., Evansville, Ind.

Relics of the Flsht. Leaving the unattractive village of Wa terloo, with Its dirty children, whose only diversion seems to be to run after the coach and keep up an Incessant cry for centimes, the Journey Is continued along tha same road which was tramped by thousands of tho allied troops on their way to action. In less than two miles tha little village of Mont St. Jean Is reached. This formed the center of the allied forces, and a mile beyond marked: some of the fiercest fighting of the day. The farm of La Haye Balnte was close by, and that was tha only position occupied by the allied troops that Napoleon Captured. A little less than a mile beyond the village are two monu ments, one to the memory of Colonel Gor don and the other In honor of the Hano verian officers of the German legion. Near by there formerly stood a large elm tree, which for years bore the name of Well ington's elm, as the duke Is said to have stood under It during the day, watching the progress of the battle. It has lon since dlsapieai'ed, carried away piecemeal by rello hunters. A few yards beyond this spot and tow ering over everything cl?e on tha battle field is the mqund of the Belgian lion. Tho mound rises 200 feet above the surface, and so much earth was taken for its erec tion that the original level of the ground for nearly a mile around has been lowered several feet On top of the mound, upon a granite pedestal, is the enormous lion, weighing nearly twenty-eight tons,, and made from cannon captured from the French during the conflict. It Is a simple, dignified' and majestic monument of the great battle that shaped the destiny of Europe for the nineteenth century. A splendid view of all the points of Interest over tha wide field is obtained from Its summit. The land presents no sharp fea tures beyond slightly undulating hills, and It Is cultivated almost entirely with grain. When seen In the harvest season the yel low, gently waving tops, spread over hun dreds of acres, present a wonderfully peaceful, restful right, and It la diiticult to Imagine that this Is the graveyard of over 2U.0i) human beings. Waterloo has alvtays had a peculiar fas cination for old soldiers, and ever since the days of Major Cotton one or more retired English soldiers have passed the closing years of their, lives there, ejsing out a fairly comfortable subsistence aa guides. The dean of his class now Is an old but cheerful member of a Highland regiment. He wears an Imposing costume of brown, heavily trimmed wfth black braid. His little cane is never at rest as he points hurriedly here and there over the field In the midst of his fluent description of ail the military tactics employed by the op posing armies. It Is a genuine pleasure to accompany him to Hougomont, for the in tensity, of Interest which hs Infuses Into his words recalls the fearful charges of the French and their herolo repulse by the Englivh with startling vividness. The care that la bestowed upon the ruins of Hougo mont to keep them in a properly ruinous condition Is also of material aid in these reminiscences of 1815. The uhubJ half-frauo admission la exacted before entering tha gate of the chateau, In Catarrh, the above diseases. New England tha term chateau would be simplified Into that of .farmhouse. Nona of the beauties, ancient or modern that tha word chateau anticipates Is to be seen. Tho buildings are very plain and are occupied by farming ' people. The old chapel, now separated from the main house, is ona of the most Interesting of the ruins. Tha) French shells set fire to a portion of tha chateau, and before they were extinguished one end or the chapel wss burned and tha wooden crucifix over the altar was scorched. To this day It Is said that tha flames stopped when they reached, the figure of Christ. Ths figure has always remained In Its original place, but a wire screen now protects It, for about two years ago some tourists, tha guide refrained from Intimating that they were Americans, cut off ona of the) legs. The Image has been repaired, and a closer watch Is kept over the ruins of Hougo mont. Tha Fla-ht at the Orchard. . The brick wall surrounding tha Inner orchard is still perforated with the same loop holes through which the British fir mowed down the French as they came up to the very mugiles of the guns, some. Indeed, leaping upon the wall only to meet Instant death. The French never sot In side the orchard, Napoleon sacrificed thousands of his best troops In a vain effort to cantor thlm lmnrnv4Mwf fnriMM If not the key to the Britluh position, It was one of the moet Important points. Had Napoleon been successful It would have enabled him to turn the flank of tha allied army, and Instead of St. Helena a renewed residence. In the Tullerlea would undoubtedly have awaited him. In front of the entrance to Houromont stand three veteran chestnut trees. They are the only living survivors, perhaps, on the entire- battlefield of that fateful day. After the conflict hundreds of trees that formed the thick wood around Hougomont were so badly torn and scorched by powder and ball that they never put forth tha next season's leaves. Even those that lived always bore unmistakable evidences of their fearful baptism by fire. It Is so to day with those, three survivors. They pre sent a tugged and battle-scarred appear. ance. The marks, of age and decay are upon thum, and as ona leaves the place he feels like giving a respectful salute to) those grand, mute "witnesses of so raucb that represented the horrible realities of war and yet of so much that represented human heroism and endurance.
