Giant Liners Sped Across the Atlantic Ocean. WERE NEVER LOST TO SIGHT. Lapland and Amerika Only Pew Miles Apart From Fire Island to English Channel—Passengers Up Early and Late to Watch Rivalry—Short Dis tance Between as Contest Ended. It falls to the lot of comparatively few voyagers across the Atlantic to enjoy the excitement of a race from Fire island to the English channel in such measure as did those on the Ham burg-American and Red Star liners Amerika and Lapland, respectively. Tho former arrived nt Plymouth Sat urday night, June 2G, while the latter reached Dover Sunday morning. For seven days and nights the two great vessels plowed the selfsame un ruffled seas almost side by side. So evenly matched were they in speed that their logs were almost identical, and, although for five and a half days the Amerika held her rival half to a quarter of a mile astern, she could not shake her off and finally turned into Plymouth with the Lapland only a Cow hundred yards behind. The Amerika left her wharf at no- boken at 10 o'clock Saturday morning, June 19. The Lapland followed an hour later and was closely followed down the bay by the White Star liner Baltic. The Cunarder Carmania and the American liner New York preced ed the three. When the Lapland clear ed Ambrose channel the Amerika waa some ten miles ahead, her hull just below the horizon, and the New York was still visible. The weather conditions were perfect, with a smooth sea and light air from the southward. These conditions pre vailed for four full days and nights or until Thursday midnight, when the wind freshened from the southeast ward and long, rolling head seas set in In which the steamers pitched easllj with small If any diminution of theii speed. The Baltic was left astern the first night out of New York, and the New York was not caught up with, although at nil times only a few miles ahead and constantly in wireless communica tion with the Amerika, Lapland and Carmania. The Carmania drew to the southward the first night and crawled up a little on the Amerika and Iap land, but all Sunday nnd Monday was plainly visible, as were her lights nt nt^'ht on tho southern horizon. She passed out of sight Tuesday morning early. Meantime the Amerika and the Lap land steamed on. Great was the ex citement of the passengers on both boats as hour after hour one would seem to gain and the other to lose, or vice versa. By Thursday afternoon the ships were almost abeam, about half a inile apart. The afternoon was unusual, for the midocean swell of the morning had subsided, the sky was cloudless, the air cool and fresh. Smoke joured In volumes from the funnels of both liners as they sped along. It was quite evident both were being pushed to their best speed. The In terchange of numerous messages be tween friends from one to the other steamer kept the Marconi operators busy all day nnd far Into the night. The contest, in fact, greatly relieved the tedium of the voyage. Many were those who sat up late on each boat and rose at unwontedly early hours to watch tho race. Friday was cold and clear, with a strong north wind on tho beam of both boats. The Amerika now drew to the southward, and the steamers ran still parallel courses, but farther apart some four miles, in fact—than at any time since they left New York. At midnight Friday the lights of each vessel were Just distinguishable from the other, and it was with a sense of loss and disappointment that good nights were said. But Saturday morn ing, -which again brought a smooth sea, sunlight nnd light northerly wind, revealed the fact that In the hours of darkness the ships had again drawn near to each other and were then only a scant mile apart, the Amerika to the southward. The Lapland's passengers saw at once that the race was probably theirs, as the Amerika would have to bear to the north to make Plymouth during the afternoon after the Scllly islands were passed, while the Lapland pur sued her course to Dover. This, they hoiied, would force the Amerika to pass astern of the Lapland, and this hoje also explained why the Lapland had kept l«aring to the north on Thursday when she had about over hauled her rival. That move had forced what seemed now likely to oc cur. As the hours of Saturday passed the excitement on both vessels increased as they drew nearer and nearer. At 3 o'clock they were almost abeam, the Amerika slightly in the lead. The pas sengers crowded the rails and watched for the result with eager. exiectant eyes. Closer and closer drew the ships, and nt 3:20, just as Bishop's rock was sighted, the Amerika put on a burst of speed, drawing ahead of the Lap land, crossed the tatter's bows only a few hundred yards away, and kept ahead for three hours until she went into Plymouth. Thus the race of seven days and three hours, all acroes the north At lantic, closed with a scant victory for the derman boat -London Special Ca ble to New York Timea.

GRAIN CO., Are Drugs Necessary? Do Drugs Cure Disease? people were born right and after wards lived right, thcro would txj no use for medicine. Every doctor knows this. So do other well-informed people. ne thing more. When a person lives Wrongly,or acqnires bodily weakness by heredity, medicine can do only very little. Medicine cannot cure him. Only charlatans claim that medicines will cure disease. Medicines may palliate symptoms. Medicines may urge the powers of Nature to resist disease. Med icines sometimes arouse the efforts of the human body to right itself against de rangements. This Is the most that med icine can do. A man accidentally puts his finger in the fire. Instinctively he wets bis finger in his mouth, then blows on it for the cooling effect. This Is no cure. II e knows it very well. But it makes It feel Ix'tter for the time being. People eat unwisely. This produces dy spepsla or indigestion. The only rational cure is to cat correctly. Yet if palliative is at hand the pains of indi gestion can be mitigate, the throes of dyspepsia assuaged. Tho medicine can not t* said to have cured. It simply palliates disagreeable symptoms. The oure must come through right living. Take Pernna, for instance. No one claims Peruna is a cure for dyspepsia* But Peruna will stimulate the stouiaeh to perform its function properly. Peru na will increase tho flow of digestive fluids, without which digestion cannot be carried on at all. It w 111 increase the relish of food, tho appetite. It is admitted that all this can be accomplished by right living, bnt there are so many peoplo who either w ill not or do not know how to eat correctly that a tremendous amount of good can be done by the wise use of Peruna. A stoinaeh that has been frequently abused performs the function of diges tion very tazily. Such a stomach allows the food to remain undigested for some time after it is swallow«d. This leads to fermentation of tho food. Sour stom ach is tho result. This goes on week after week, until tho blood is poisoned with the products of fermentation. This condition is very apt to produce rheum atism. It is not claimed that Peruna will cure rheumatism. Nothing will cure rheum atism but correct living. But it is flat mod that Peruna will assist a badly &bused stomach to .perform its work. Foley's Honey and Tar is a safeguard against serious results from spring colds which inflame COAL Can Nature be Assisted? the lungs and develop into pneumonia. Avoid counterfeits by insisting upon having the genuine Fol ey's Honey and Tar, which contains no harmful drugs.—J. 11. Anderao. If a person would correct his habits, persist in right eating aud tenijx rate ways, undoubtedly the stomach would right itself, tbe L1kx1 would rid itself of the poison, and everything would be right. But as said before there are a multitudoof people who will notorcan not adopt right methods of living. To such people Peruna is a boon. A dose before meals will assist the stomach to do its work. This prevents fermenta tion of tho food, brtngs about normal digestion, and all the train of ills that follow indigestion disappear. In other words, Peruna is helpful to those who live badly, or thoBe who havo acquired some chronic weakness. Peruna do«s not cure, but it assists the powers of Nature to bring aUuit a euro. The whip does not increase the power of the horse to pull a load, but judi ciously used it stimulates tho horse to use his powers at tho right time, with out which he could not havo pulled the load. This illustrates tbe effect of Pernna, or any other good remedy upon the sys tem. Taken at tho right time, it calls forth the powers of the human system to meet tho en- roach men ts of disease, and thus cuts short, if not entirely ends, the diseased action. No one should ever attempt to substi tute medicine in the place of right liv ing. In the end such an attempt will prove a disaster. But an occasional use of tho right medicine at tho right time is a godsend, and no reasonable person will undertake to deny it. Those w ho know how to use Pernna find it of untold vatuo. By and by the world will get wise enough so that through correct living no medicine at all will lie needed. But that time has not arrived. In the mtwntime, while tbe world is approaching that perfeo tion in which all medicine will be elim inated, Peruna is a handy remedy to have in tho house. Blight derangements of tho stomach slight catarrhal attacks of tholiver, the throat, bronchial tutx«, lungs or bow els theso attacks are sure to lead to grave diiK-ases, and cjui be averted by the Judicious use of Pcjrona.
