B., Principal of the Georgia Normil and Industrial Institute, and editor and proprietor of the "Georgia Hel]}ing Hand" "vrrites the following glorying words concerning Peruna, and its efficacy in the cure of catarrh.  He says: "I was induced to try Peruna by the advice of a friend, and certainly believe that suffering humanity would be reUeTec^it they only gave Peruna a fair trial. "Would that I could frame words ¡sufficient to express my gratitude for tlae benefits derived from Its use."—P. A. CtrRTRIGHT, Greensboro, Ga.  Hon. W. N". Eoach, United States Senator from ITorth Dakota, in a letter written from Ijarimore, North Dakota, says:  " Persuaded by a friend, I have used Peruna as a toidc, and am glad to testify that it has grea tly helped me in strength, vigor and appe tite. I have been advised by friends that it is remarkably efficacious as a cure for the almost universal complaint of ca tarrh."—W. N. Boach.  Senator Boach's wife recommends Pe-ximaalso. Shtisays; "I can cheerfully  recommend your excellent remedy, Peruna. Indeed, I know of no other remedy as good as yours. It is a grand tonic, and many of my friends have used it for catarrh with good results."—Mrs. W. N". Boach.  The most common phases of summer catarrh are catarrh of the stomach and bowels. Peruna is a specific for summer catarrh.  Mr. Wm. Hebley, Duqaesne, Pa., writes:—"/ am cured of catarrh of the stomach of two years standing. I had it so bad thai I could not eat anything but milk. I doctored with severaf doctors and they could give me relief tor a short time only. / saw Peruna recommended and thought I would try it, and I now think I am cured of catarrh. I have worked two months and did not lose a day."—Wm. Hebley.  Mr. Moses I". Merrill, Columbus, Cherokee Co., Kansas, Bural Bo^te No. 3, writes:  •'I had been troubled with systemic catarrh, which affected the lower bowels especially. I was troubled with running o£E of the bowels and troublesome catarrh of the bronchial tubes which caused spitting of thick mucus. Since taking Peruna my improvement has been wonderful. Mybawels are regular as clock-work. / can now eat like other people and my vituals digest."— Moses P. Merrill.  Hon. Willis Brewer, Bepresentative in Congress from Alabama, writes the following letter to Dr. Hartman:  House of Bepresentativea, Washington, D. O. The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, O.;  Gentlemen—"I have used one bottle of Peruna for lassitude, and I take pleasure in recommending It to those who need a good remedy. As a tonic it is excellent. In the short time I have used it it has done me a great deal of good."—Willia Brewer.

Tiie sharper th^ain the more danger tl^e is in delay. There are thousands of women to-day who arc bearing awful pain almost continually, rather th^ tell a physician about the shooting pains int^r lower abdomen, about the agony of falling •of the womb and the distress of leucorrhoea. They Jet the months pass and their troubfe becomes harder to cure and more distressing. But modest women can secure exemption -from the embarrassment of a private exami-jiation. When pain tells them of danger ■they can cure themselves by the use of  WINEo'CARDUI  in the privacy of their homes. You can be cured without distressing pubKcity. "With these facts before you there is no reason for the de!!ay which is increasing your misery and wasting the days of your life. "Why not stop the pain today r  Belen, Miss., March 9, 1900.  I have -used one bottle of Wine of Cardui and one package of Thedford's Blacfe-;araught. Before I began to take yonr medicines I had pains in my back, hips, lower bow els and my arms. Sometimes I thought I would go blind. My head acli«d and I was so weak I could hardly walk across the floor. Now I can ozily feel a little of the pain in my side and I am going to use yoiir medicines nintil I get cured, for 1 believe they will certainly cure me. I have been ms>.rried twelve years and am the mother of seven children. Z than!: you for your wonderful medicine and what it has done for me.  MATILDA SMITH.

TO OKLÏ III PURI  Story of European Proposafs for Interference in the War with Spain.  STATE DEPAETMEUT 13 INPOEMED  But Will Not Go into Any Controversy —HoMse and Senate Ti.lk Filipino—Capital City Notes.  Wasliing-ton. Jan. 22.—The state department-v.ill not be drawn into the coivtrovei-sy Avhicli has sprang up "between the European poAvers respecting the efforts made by them to prevent the United States from going to war with Spain. Lord Cranbonie's statement in parliament ^londay Is recognized as absolutely correct as far as it went, but there are chapters in the Jïtory which he did not touch upon, and it is recognized here as inexpedient to develoij all the facts even now, lest animosities spring up Avithout sufficient reason. The franlc statement of Lord Cranborne touching Austria's earnest efforts to prevent war caused no resentment here, wliere it is realized that there were dynastic and sympathetic reasons that justified—or at least extenuated—the Austrian purpose.  Policy of tlio Semocrafs.  Washington, jan. 22.—^The committee of twelve appointed by direction of the caucus of house Democrats to consider a number of resolutions outlining the policy to be pursued by the minority, during the present congress, has agreed by a vote of 11 to 1 to recommend to tiie general Democratic caucus, which meets on Friday, the adoption of a resolution declaring it to be the sense of the Democrats of the house that the caucus is not for the purpose of making platform declarations, and has no poAvar to add to or subtract from the national platforms already adopted. Henry of Texas Avill offer as a substitute a resolution for the reaflirmation of the Kansas City platform.  TVllson Asks Money for Inspection.  Wasliiugton, Jan. 22.—OAving to the threatened interruption of American !#3at . exports to iimroije because of-a failure of goA'emment inspection the secretary of agriculture yesterday sent to the house a request for an emergency appropriation of $40,000 to carry forward the inspections conducted by the bureau of animal industry. Without this the microscopic inspections cannot continue after March 1. The secretary says: "The indirect effect of its temporary interruption will be much more damaging to American interests than the mere loss of the continental export trade for a feAV months. It will result in brealving commercial connections and creating a bad impression in countries to wihich our products are sent."  FItlPINO THE BONE OF CONTENTION  Ho Occnpirs the Center of tlie Stage in  Botli Houses of-Congress.  Washington, Jan. 22.—For nearly three houi-s yesterday the senate had under consideration the Philippine tariff bill.| The measure was made the unfinished business and pi*obably will hold that position of preference until It sliall have been voted on finally. The debate AA^as opened by Lodge of Massachusetts, chairman of tlie committee on Philipi^ines. He sketched the reasons AA'hich had actuated the majority in presenting the measure, and urged sti-ongiy its enactment into law at an early date. llawlins of Utah delivered a vigorous speech in support of the minority substitute, in which independence was promised to the Filipinos as soon as a S'table giv-ernment could be established in the Philippines. His discussion of the general Philippine question covered much of the gi-ound that has been gone over during the past tAvo years. In concluding his speecli Rawlins said, referi-ing to the Filipinos: "Let the Ishmaelite go. OtlierAvise the burden of our difficulties Avill gi-OAA'. Taxes, like the Old Man of the Sea, will hang upon our backs, and In the end the gory head of tlie i-epu'blic may be raised upon a pike as a terrible warning to any who would straggle to be free."  The same subject was one of the most prominent in the house, AA'here, under the fiction that they are discussing the urgent deficiency bill, the membei-s talk on any subject they please. Kem of Illinois, Gaines of Temiessee and Dinsmore of Arkansas spoke against the present Philippine policy. Gaines declared that while in the Philii)pines he learned absolutely that the Americans promised independence to the Filipinos. Kahn of Califoraia challenged him to produce the name of a single Filipino who gave him such information. Gaines said that the information had been given him in confidence, and that if he were to divulge the names of those wlio had given It to him they would lose their heads. This reply elicited jeers from the Republican side.  Bacon of Georgia referred to an order of the secretax'y of war to permit ships under foreign flags to enter the ti-ade betAveen the United States and the Philippines after the decision of the supreme court that the Islands Avere domestic territory. No exigency of trade, In his opinion, was a suflacient reason for such violation of the laAv. SteAvart of Nevada, In reply to Bacon, declared an executive officer could set aside a law for the public good, and tliat the rule had existed for centuries that statutory law must yield to great emergencies. _  Senate and House Briefed,  Washington, Jan, 22.—-Yesterday the senate debated the Philippine tariff bill without action, passed a number of private pension bills and other measures and held an executive session. One of the bills passed extends the time for building a bridge over the Missouri at Council Bluffs, la. Another appropriates $150,000 each for buildings at Muncie and Anderson, Ind. Another is to provide medals for the men who fought on the Cumberland, Congress and Minnesota in the GO'S.  Tlie honfle managers are allowing  the widest latitude in the debate on the urgent deficiency "bill now before the house, and the members speak on any subject they choose, while no action has been taken on -the bill.  MTTtE NEWS PROM PANAMA  í^'.S&ÜiSí  But AU IB Qutet There Now and tho Slaughter Was Not Great.  Washington, Jan. 22,—Confirmatory iniorma-tlon of the killing of General Alban, the governor of the department of Paaama, in the figlit between tlie revolutionary and the government  forces was received at the Colombian legation yesterday. The dispatch was from General Arpona, who haJ taken command in place of Alban. Dr. Sil-va, tlie Colombian minister, is encom--aged to believe that there will not be any attack on the city of Panama by the revolutionary forces, as the voluntary retirement of (Jeneral Herrera, tJie revolutionary leader, after the sinking of the Lautaro, is an evidence hat he has not sufficient meai to operate aggi-esslvely.  Dr. SilA'a calls attention to the fact that communication by AA-ay of the Isthmus is still open for tho Colombian government, which is thus enable<l to draAv for reinforcements on the cities of Carthagena and Bai-ranquilla if it so desires. The fight betAveen the ships AA'as not so bloody as had been expected. The Lautaro was sunk and the rebel Darien Avas so badly dam-iiged that she Avent aslioi-e. The rebels report seventeen Avounded and the government lost fiA-e killed and four Avounded.  rresident Has S>chlcy'8 Appeal.  Washington, Jan. 22.—After a conference lasting several hours with his counsel. Admiral Schley approved the appeal from the findings of the court of inquixy and it was oeliA-ered to the president late yesterday afternoon by Teague. The rppeal sets out the grounds of error upon points of law and fact alleged by Admiral Schley, and concludes with a lengthy argument in support of his contention that he has been imfafrly dealt -n-ith. Admiral Schley and his counsel refused to make the appeal public.  Tobacco Men of One Mind.  Washington, Jan. 22.—The ways and moans committee yesterday resumed its hearings on Cuban reciprocity Avith special reference to the proposed reduction on Cuban tobacco. The tobacco interests of the United States were largely represented, the otficei-s of the large leaf, manufacturers' and growers' associations 'being present, and they all said that the reduction Avould kill the business in the United States.

SUSTAIS CRANBORNE  Austrian Foreign Office Says the British Undersecretary's Story Is True.  ADDS A UÎTE TO THE DISOLOSUEE  Not Favorable to John Bull—Russia and Germany Passive—Berlin Statement.  Vienna, Jan. 22.—Inquiries made by the Associated Press at the Austria-Hungarian foreign oifice confirm the essential points of the statement made by Lord Cranborne, the British foreign under secretary, in the house of commons Monday. The djniastic relations of Austria with Spain, the queen regent being an archduchess of Austiia, led Austria before the declaration of the AA-ar betAveen Spain and the United States to begin a peace propaganda, Avhich AA'as carried on not only in England liut throughout Europe. France was ready to second the efforts of Austria. Germany and j.».ussia maintained a passlA-e attitude. Great Britain AA-as at fii-st disposed to sign the proposed note, but after a confidentiitl report from Washington declined either to sign such a note as the Austrian ambassador proposed or to taiie any further steps. Austi-ia and France made direct representatidns at Washington, but ceased their efforts after the declaration of AA'ar, from that time foi-tli relying on the efforts of the pope, Avlio Avas backed by the tacit ap-proA^al of all the poAvers.  Denial Comes from Germany.
