OVERHANDS TWO LITTLE GIRLS Enclosed find a picture of my two little girls who couldn’t be without their Peruna. They have both had the measles since I last wrote to you. but even through the sickness I gave them the Peruna. “We have used Peruna constantly for the past two years with our children and have received the most satisfactory results. We would not be without It. The youngest one, Elsie, is the one that had bronchi!if trouble, and had it not been for your medicine she would have choked to death. It has done wonders for her. Yours gratefully, Mrs. ti. ti. Overmann, 2865 Winslow Ave., Cincinnati, O. Mr. L. G. Vandegriff, Carrollton, Ga., writes: “I endorse your Peruna. I had a little girl afflicted with catarrh and have had two physicians to treat her and found no relief. After using two bottles of your Peruna she is sound and well. I am now giving it to my other children.” Mr. Joseph Kirchensteiner. 87 Croton street, Cleveland, O., says: “We have used Peruna for eight years as our family medicine. During the whole of that time we have not had to employ a physician. Our family consists of seven, and we always use it for the thousand and one ailments to which mankind is liable. We have used it in cases of scarlet fever, measles and diphtheria. Whenever one in the family feel In the least ill, mother always says: ‘Take Peruna and you will be well,’ or if we do not happen to have any, ‘We will have to get more Peruna.’ Peruna is always satisfactory in colds and coughs.” Children are especially liable to acute catarrh. Indeed, most of the affections of childhood are catarrh. All forms of sore throat, quinsy, croup, hoarseness and laryngitis are but different phases of catarrh. These affections, in the acute form, may pass away without treatment, but they leave a foundation for chronic catarrh in later years. Even a slight cold i3 acute catarrh, and renders the mucous membranes of the head and throat more liable to chronic catarrh afterwards. The child is constantly assailed, winter a midsummer, with catarrh. Affections of the stomach and bowels, colic and diarrhoea are due to catarrhal derangements of these organs. A great many families are learning by bitter experience that, these affections must be promptly treated or the child’s health Is permanently injured. Peruna is the remedy. No family should be without it. As soon as the symptoms of cold, cough, or any other affection of the throat or stomach is noticed, Peruna should be given according to directions. A vast multitude of families are relying entirely upon Peruna for safety in this direction. That Peruna can be relied upon is evinced bv the great number of testimonials which Dr. Hartman is receiving daily. Only a very few of these can be published. Only one in a thousand. Every household should be provided with Dr. Hartman's free book on catarrh. Sent free by The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, Ohio.

Assignee Chaplin Fast Clearing Up Affairs. Dillaway & Slarr, Bankers ai Brokers, Assign. As matters stand now the interests of the John P. Squire & Co coriwratlon have a great deal to do with the prospects of the resuming of business by the Broadway national bank. There is apparently no doubt that the Broadway bank will be rehabilitated at once with new capital, and that It will be opened again wit. A a short time. This result. of course, Is dependent upon the successful completion of the negotiations now tinder way. A company of capitalists have been induced to Investigate the bank by F. H. Curtiss the cashier. They were so well pleased at the showing of the assets that they are negotiating with assignee H. W, Chaplin for the purchase of the 1500 shares of stock held by the Squires. They arc also convinced that the unsecured Squire notes held by the Flank can be taken up In full In time, us from what they have learnt*; of the Squire property they are sure that all ot the natalities v^ill be met by the assignee. Their plan Is to purchase the 15C0 bank shares held by the assignee as a part of the Squire property at as low a figure as possible. Having control of tho bank they propose to take up personally all of the Squire notes held by the institution, thus giving the bank immediately dollar for dollar on qyery bit of Squire paper it now holds. All of the other loans arc said to be amply covered by easily convertible collateral. This will start the Institution with a Coat i ii lied on the Second Page.

He was walking along the firing line, within 300 yards of a small sharpshooters’ trench, conspicuous in the big white helmet he always wore, and a light yellow rain coat. He was easily distinguishable because of his commanding stature. The sharpshooters directed several close shots, which clipped tho grass nearby. His staff officers called Gen Lawton’s attention to the danger he was in, but he only laughed with his usual contempt for bullets. Suddenly he exclaimed "I am shot,” clinched his hands in a desperate effort to stand erect and fell into the arms of a staff officer.    • Orderlies rushed across the field for the surgeons, who dashed up Immediately, but their efforts were useless. The body was taken to a clump of bushes and laid on a stretcher, the familiar white helmet covering the face if the dead general. Almost at this moment the cheers of the American troops rushing into San Mateo were mingling with the rifle volleys. After *ho fight six stalwart cavalrymen forded the river to the town carrying the litter on their shoulders, the staff preceding with the colors and a cavalry escort following. The troops filed bareheaded through the building where the body lay, and many a tear fell from the eyes of men who had long followed the intrepid Lawton. The entire command was stricken with grief, as though each man had suffered a personal loss.    ___ His Family in Manila. Owing to the condition of the country, which is Impassable so far as vehicles are concerned, the remains could not be brought to Manila today. Mrs I.awton and tile children are living in a government residence, formerly occupied by a Spanish general. San Mateo lies between a high mountain behind and a broad, shallow stream In front, with wide sand bars, which the insurgent trenches and the buildings commanded. The Americans were compelled to ford the river under fire. It was while they were lying in the rice fields and volleying across preparatory to passing the stream that Gen Lawton was shot. All except the officers were beyond cover. A staff officer was wounded about the same time and one other officer and seven nu n were wounded. After three hours’ shooting the Filipinos were dispersed into the mountains. Col Lockett took command when Gen Lawton fell. His Last Assignment. Gen Lawton left Manila Monday night, having returned from his northern operations Saturday, to lead an expedition through Martqulna valley, which has been an insurgent stronghold throughout the war The valley has several times been Invaded. but never held by the Americans. Gen Cereomo was supposed to have there the largest organized force north of Manila, and Gen Otis wished to garrison Mariqulna. The night was one of the worst of the season. A terrific rain had begun and still continues. Accompanied by his staff and troop I, 4th cavalry, Gen Lawton set out at 9 o’clock In advance of the main force, consisting of the lith cavalry and one Continneri on the Third Page. 6. eiNZSER.6 & CO., IMPORTERS, 6 Winter St-, Room I.
