Who Heed the First Symjx* toma of Nervous Derangement IS THAT little fight at Cardenas wll encourage tbe Spaniards In Cubi. THE "boys In blue" will get »1 per month and board while serving Uncle Sam. THE great naval battle in our wa with Spam may be fought next week In Cuban waters. WHAT shall we do witb the Phil ipplnes? This is a question that now agitating the minds of American Btatasmen. TH2RE would have been no hurr; about changing employes in the city electric light department. The boy "struck" out. THERE need have been no about quitting at the electric works. No man's service is lutely Sndlspensaole. hurry light abso THE Cass county boys are now vol- untear soldiers of tbe United States Company M, One Hundred and Sixtieth Indiana Volunteer Infantry. THE fortifications at San Juan, Porto Klco, are In rains. The same fate awaits Havana when the guns of Sampaon's fleet are turned upon It. SPAIN Is evidently awaiting for the intervention of Europaan powers to help her secure peace. She is making no great effort to hold her possessions in North America. THIRTY days hence Spain should be dispossessed of her territory in the western hemisphere. Tho bull fight- lug nation, that at one time possessed the greater portion o.t the new world, will soon own nOoe of It. . ALL the Indiana volunteers have now been sworn Into the government «ervice and the.state quota Is full. There are four regiments and two batteries. It Is expected now that the full force will depart for tbe ticene of conflict not .later than next Hocday. "~ ^ THOSE old fortifications about Cub* and Porto Elco have little more resistance than a house built o( cobs would have against a well, directed •tone thrown by some boy. They will be easily destroyed by a few well directed shots from tbe great guns carried by our battle ships. HAKKV- NEW, proprietor of the Indianapolis Journal; Bussel £. Harrison, SOD of Benjamin Harrison; Richard W. Thompson, son of Richard W. Thompson, of Torre Haute, and Fairbanks, junior, son of Senator Fairbanks, have all been given lucrative positions in the army. Harry New is an assistant quartermaster. Special from Mrs. Pinkbam. A dull, aching pain at the lower par of the back and a sensation of littlo rills of heat, or chills running dov/n the spine, are symptoms of genera womb derangement. If these symptoms are not accompanied by- leucorrhoea, they are precursors of that weakness. It is worse than folly to neglect these symptoms. Any woman of common sense will take steps to cure herself. She will realize that her generative system is in need of help, and that a good restorative medicine is a positive necessity. It must be a medicine with specific virtues. As a friend, a woman friend, let me advise the use of Lydia E Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. If your case has progressed so that * troublesome discharge is already established, do not delay, take the Vegetable Compound at once, so as to tone •up your whole nervous system; you can get it at any reliable drug store You ought also to use a local application, or else the corrosive discharge will set up an inflammation and hardening of the parts. Mrs. Pinkhazn's Sanative Wash is put up in packets at 25 cents each. To relieve this painful condition this Sanative Wash is worth Its weight in gold. MBS.GEOK&E W. SBEp/o«D,Watervliet, K. Y.,says: " I am glad to state that I am cured from the worst form of female weakness. I was troubled very much with leucorrhoea, bearing-down pains and backache. Before using Mrs. Pinkham's Bemedies it seemed that. 1 had no strength at all. I was in pain all over. I begun to feel better after taking the first dose of Vegetable Compound. I tave used five bottles, and I feel like a new woman. I know if other suffering women would only try it, it would help them." effort made to collect all sums due he city for such service. There is omethtng remarkable about the unwillingness to surrender control of his department into new hands. The taxpayers demand more pab- icity in regard to the management f this department as well as the water works department ENSIGN BAGLEY Is tbe first American officer to be killed in our war with Spain. He was 26 years old and a native of North Carolina. He ODsered the naval academy io 1891 and graduated last June. He was a very popular officer. He served until last November oa the Maine and was assigned to the Wlaslow last December. A DISPOSITION Is already shown at Washington to appoint to lucrative nd responsible positions In the army men who have had no experience Jn military affairs and no training that ts them to take the places of men rho have been educated at tbe gov- roment expense. There have been already appointed r slated for prompt appointment to fflces of high rank in the army sons of enatora Gray, Elklns and Fairbanks nd a nephew of Senator Allison, and ons of Representatives Hill and Hitt, Secretary Alger and the late I Secretary Blaiae. If these young men want to serve their country why not enter the ranks as common soldiers. The men who have educated themselves to become soldiers ought to be recognized be fore positions are given to civilians. IF It be true that the Spanish fleet, which left Cape Verde last month, has reached St. Pierre, Martinique Islands, a battle may be expected within a few days. Martinique Island Is about 500 miles southeast of Porto Rico. Sampson's fleet Is now at Porto Rico. If the Spanish flee'' Balls'for Havana, Sampson's fleet and the '-(lying squadroa" under Commodore Sohley will Intercept and destroy it. If tbe Spanish fleet reaches Cuban waters it will never get away without a battle. THE elpctrtc lights shone with Vbeir accustomed brilliancy last night. Oae of the best electricians In the city, and a Republican, volunteered his services to help out whenever occasion may require without pay . One of the heaviest taxpayers In the city and a Republican called at the works last nignt and stated that be was glad of the change in management and that he now hoped that the taxpayers will be made acquainted with every thing that transpires in the department. He remarked that the people were anxious to know what the plant has cost and that they expect a detailed statement of its earning capacity. should be a general overhauling In the city electric light department. The public should be apprised at an early day of what the plant has cost and its earning capacity. It is rumored that there are a good many private consumers of light who are delinquent in their light bills. This matter should Also be investigated and an AJiXOUJiCEJIBNTS. I'OR JOJXT REPRESENTATIVE, Ambrose O'Brieu, of Fulton county, will be a candidate for joint representative ol'the counties (.1 Cass and Fulton, subject to the decision of the. Democratic Dominating con ven tion.

The shore line covered by the American blockading squadron in Cuba is 1,20 miles long. It extends from Babia Honda on the westward to Cardenas bay and city on the east. Bahia Honda is 45 miles west of Havana. Matanzas, which was bombarded by the American fleet, is in the province of Matanzas and is 00 miles east of Havana. Cardenas bay is about 15 miles east of Matanzas. The war began on Friday. It was not, however, au unlucky opening for this country, since in three days' titne our warships had captured eight Spanish trading vessels in the West Indian waters,' cruft of all sizes from little schooners up to tbe big merchantman Catalina of 4,796 tons. The aggregate value of the prizes was considerably over $1,000,000. The United States has now thre« sqoadroas in active operation. The commander of the Asiatic fleet at the Philippines is Commodore Dewey, of the fleet off Cnba Captain Sampson and of tbe flying squadron that is patrolling the New England and north Atlantic coast Commodore Schley.

Willis of the Bostons has been dubbed the "Kangaroo." "Joyce's Joyful Joints" is tbe way one of tte Philadelphia newspapers speaks of toe Giants. The Pittsburg team will receive priza money at the end of the season if it fia ishes better tban sixth place. Young Hickman of the Bostons is a remarkably stocky youngster, -who can torn the scales at 185 pounds. Acbaticchio, the Quaker whose name is suft'ering from a bronchial affection, is dubbed "Ac Bat" by the Philadelphia fans. Tebean is still confident that Pitcher Cuppy will recover the use of his pitching arm when hot weather begins and •will then help theClevelands to rush to the front. Chris Von der Ahe's greyhound, Fly, which has been petted and admired by National .League players for years, was burned to death in the lire at Sportsman's park. Dobeny, in a game he pitched in Philadelphia, struck ont three times, and then as an illustration of hie ver- eatility hit the ball for three buses in the eighth inning. Cincinnati has evidently picked up a sensational infielrler ir> Steinfeldt, late of Detroit. This player wears cricket guards on his shins and goes after veritable cannon shots. Barrister Mike Sullivan of the Gianta, the apostle of Blackstone and manufacturer of twirlers' curves, has played engagements on four major league teams in the past five years. Dr. Chaancey M. Depew is now classed among the baseball enthusiasts. He recently sent his cfaeck for $JOO to Yale to help the -jollege team meet the expenses of. its southern trip.

Robinson, the national cross country champion, enabled him to draw away from tbe southern champion, C. Bennett, and win by 30 yards. Before the race the friends of Bennett were tipping their man to win if he could only stick with the leader op to the final lap, bat the result of the race upset their calculations, J. E. Dixon of the London Athletic club was the ninth man in, but he received quite an ovation at tbe finish. He had covered the ten miles in 64:12—a wonderful performance for a man in his forty-eighth year and who ran third when W. Snook won the ten mile championship 15 yearsago.

That Made Kdl»on The dominating traits of character— characteristics, it is proper to call them —of GSbomas A. Edison are revealed in a most novel way in The Ladies' Home Journal. This biography of the famous wizard is told in a series of anecdotes, each of yfhicb brings to light a different trait of that -wonderful personage. The series of anecdotes—which is illustrated •with characteristic photographs of Mr. Edison, specially ; made ; for the article—constirates a perfect word; picture of the inventor and emphasizes the Mfnomuwt anc Soarta.

Pare blood, strong nerves and muscles, firm, nealtby fls»h, can only come from wholesome food well digested. "Blood purifiers" and "nerve tonic" do not reacb the cause of the mischief. The stomach Is the point to be looked after. The safest and surest way to cure any form of indigestion is to take after each meal some harmless preparation of this kind, composed of vegetable essences pure pepsin, golden seal and fruit salts, sold by druggists under name of Stuart's Dyspep^a Tablets, and these tablets taken after meals assist digestion wonderfully because they will digest the food promptly before it has time to ferment and sour, and j i he weak stomach relieved and awlst- | ed In this way soon becomes strong 'and vigorous again. I Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are superior to any secret patent medicine" because you know what you are taking into your stomach. They are sold by druggists everywhere at 50c per package. Write F, A.

Of tbemen who have occupied positions of public trust in Kansas City either by gift of the people or by ''appointment, none has a moro enviable reputation for ability, honesty and efficiency tban James Burns ^Collector o£.. the Port of Kansas City under Grover Cleveland. He lived to this letter the maxim, "a public office is a public trust," acd when he retired he carried with blm tbe respect of everyone in the community— Democrats and Republicans alike. . r i_Tj James Burns has used Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and he does not he«t- tate to say they have.accomplisbed wonders.
