MBS. CURTIS, NEW YOBK, Telia Her Experience "With Ovaritis. THB raine of yesterday aod last night will greatly delay farm work. There IB a large acreage of corn to be planted yet. TEK Indiana boye will soon be at the front. One regiment left Camp Mount yesterday, and two of the remaining ones will leave tonight. IT will not be surprising If both Cuba and Porto Kico become American possessions. But we do not waat the Philippines. Their possession would lead to International complications. THE invasion of Cuba will be delayed until the Spanish fleet is either destroyed, driven ous of Cuban waters or botteled up in some Cuban harbor. This will be an exciting week In the vicinity of Cuba. THE South Bend Times predicts that the outcome of this war will be free Cuba and conouered Porto Rico. The Philippines will do for trading purposes at the wlod up. As a permanent possession we don't want them. IT is expected that Commodore Sampson will Intercept the Spanish fleet at a point near the eastern extremity of Cuba and the western extremity of Jamaica. There will be a race to see which fleet can reach Clenfuegos first. THAT Spanish fleet can only escape by running away. It must have coal or it cannot run away. The prediction is made that the Cape Verde fleet will seek shelter in one of the harbors on the <outh coast of Cuba— perhaps at Cienfuegos. CASPAR WHITNEY, a special correspondent of Harper's Weekly, now stationed at Tampa, Florida, has visited the armed camps of Germany, France and England, and after viewing the drills of the U. S. regulars at Tampa, expresses the opinion that they are the finest soldleri in the world today. SOME Indiana men are getting some soft berthi In the army. Charley Jewett, of, New Albany, has been given a place in the tervlce with the rank of lieutenant colonel. Although Charley has lived on the Kentucky ttorder all his life, he has never, perhaps, shot a gun or heard a louder report than the discharge of a cork. DBWEY has cabled the navy department that Manila is still at his mercy and can be taken at any time. The Spaniards at that place are suffering for lack of food, and It is only a question of time until they will surrender and become prisoners of war. An army of 12,000 men under Gen, eial Merritt will be sent to occupy Manila. W YORK will perhaps turn out the best regiments of soldiers. Her regiments are not only well equipped tout well officered and >sell drilled. They have been woll drilled in the use of the army rifle and are proficient marksmen. This is a very important thing when it comes to effectiveness in battle. Of recent years the regular army is drilled in rifle practice and some excellent records have been made. In the national guard service little attention has keen paid to this important feature of the military service, and many men will be found IB the ranks who have never fired an army rifle. UNDER a law passed at the close of the civil war an ex-confederate could not serve in any official position In the army or navy. The section of the law read thus: "No person who has served in any capacity in the military, naval or civil service of the- so-called Confederate States, or of either of the states in insurrection during the late rebel- Hoc, shall be appointed to any position in the army of the United States." The law was repealed in March, 1S9S. and every southerner is eligible to positions in the military or naval service. Many ex-confederates have already been given positions of great responsibility. "Tms Italian bread riots have every Indication," says the Chicago Tribune, "of being but preliminary outbreaks of a concerted and wide, spread revolutionary movement. The people have long been in silent mutiny against the intolerable taxes wrung from them for the support of their enormous government and military ; establishments. They have wearied of going without food and 'Clothing In order to maintain,* standing army of 250,000 men and A dull, throbbing pain, accompanied by a sense of tenderness and heat low down in the side, -with, an occasional shooting pain, indicates-inflammation. - On examination it will be found that the region of pain shows sorrie swelling-. This is the first stage of ovaritis, inflammation of the ovary. Jf the roof of your house leaks, my sister, you have it fixed at once; why not pay the same respect to your own body ? Do you live miles away from a doctor ? Then that is all the more reason why you should attend to yourself at once, or you will eoon be on the flat cf your back. You need not, you ought not to let youi^ self go, \ when one of your own sex holds out thehelp- Ing hand to you, and T will advise you without money and without price. Write to Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass., and tell her all your symptoms. Her experience in treating female jllsis greater than any other living person. Following is proof of what we sa-y: " For nine years.I suffered with female weakness in its worst form, I was in bed nearly a year, with congestion of the ovaries. I also suffered •with falling of the womb, was very weak, tired all the time, had such headaches as to make me almost wild. Was also troubled with leucorrhosa, and was bloated so badly that some thought I had dropsy. I have taken several bottles of Lydia-E. Pinkhajn's Vegetable Compound, and several oi her Blood Purifier, and am completely cured. It is a wonder to all that I 'goi well. I shall always owe Mrs. Pinkham a debt of gratitude -for her kindness. I would advise all who suffer to take her medicine."—MBS. CUBTIS, Ticonflaroira. N. V a navy of 300 vessels. Inconsequence the country has for sometime been honeycombed with revolutionary societies, and the sudden rise of food prices has precipitated a storm that has long been brewing—a storm that threatens to overturn the dynasty Itself." It is iio wonder that the Italians are leaving their native land in such numbers. Yet Italy, In- proportion to her population, is paying bat little if any more for supporting a standing army than any other of the European kingdoms. It is no wonder that there is distress among the producers of Europe, who support, these great armies in Idleness. It is no wonder that there are revolts, insurrections and bread riots. Many of these kingdoms are bankrupt. They have been made so in an effort to preserve* national existence. ANNOUNCEMENTS. FOB JOINT REPRB«FJ»TAT1VE, Ambrose O'Brien, of Fulton county, will be a candidate for joint representative ^of the counties (.f Caes and Fulton, subject to the decision of the.

Spanish coruplime'iits to Americans are numerous. Tbey fill tbe weary air. The favorite name for us among the lower classes is "swiue," and when the Spaniard is drunk, and consequently braver than usual, be swaggers around \ritb a knife, boasting that he wants to "stick American pigs'." De lome long ago showed tbe typical high bred courtesy of the Spanish don when he wrote in a private letter that President McKinley was a low politician. Blanco further expressed the common Spanish estimate ol our country when in a proclamation he styled us a "nation of nobodies." The same idea was put into yet more artistic language by the eloquent governor of tbe Philippines when he hurl°d at us the words a "nation of social excrescences." This was just before Commodore Dewey paid his little visit to the islands. Spain certainly whips ns all to pieces in the abuse of language. We cannot cope with her in aiming and firing torpedoes of the tongue or the heavy projectiles of thundering talk. Tbe English vocabulary is not equal to it The literary canon of the Norwegian author Bjorustjerae-Bjornsou is respectfully commended to those young men and womeu of tbe pen who consider pessimism and horrors a mark of genins in a writer. It is this: "What we wane in the future is a literature which will make men be,tter." Rev. Dr. C. S» Swallow, Prohibition and independent candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, is making his can*ass on the platform, " Thou shalt not steal." This is awfully suggestive, but we hope Dr. Swallow does not mean to insinuate that only bis own party is; hoau* Sim FIVE THOUSAND The Number of Volunteers Mustered Ip by the United States Up to Date. * ALL OUR BOYS GO TO CHICK A HA HE A nft.Ie of BreaJtinR Ca>np Bri»(r» Out the Sadues* of Breaking Ties — Real Soldi«;r Life Begins for Man;)- Thousand state Militiamen — Report of an American Ke- puN* Comes from Madrid— Havana Has No Keconcentrfeuo* Now. Madrid.- May 16.- A d'-<£atch from Havana says: "Three American warships have re-bombarded Cardenas with^sheiis • iards, drawn upon shore, replied hotly sulate. The Americans attempted to land men and ammunition when the cannonade was the hottest. The Spaniards, drawn upon shore, replied hotly to the American fire, inflicting severe loss on the enemy. Seven Spaniards were wounded." Key West, Pla., May ii>.— Captured Havana fishermen say the reconeen- tradcs are nearly all dead or have been expelled from the city. The latter, it is added, afterwards died in the suburbs. Washington.May 16.—Sixty-five thousand troops have been mustered in.

Illinois Men Start Saturday and Other States on Yentcl'day. Springfield, Ills., May 16.—At exactly 8 o'clock Saturday morning the First battalion of the Fifth regiment, commanded by Colonel J. S. Culver, of Spring-field, marched through to the depot at Camp Tanner and immediately boarded the train which is to bear them .to Chickamauga. • Late in the-morning, the boys at Camp Tanner were any-, thing but agreeable and pleasant. A. dismal rain was falling, but this was not heeded, so anxious were they to be» -off.- Most of the partings and "goodbyes" were said' on Friday night, but many anxious mothers, and sisters were upon the platforjn when ,th'eir l .'boys'' marched out of camp. The troops were marched into the trajn immediately!and- were given -no opportunity ior.-a last kiss or shake of the hand. - Mothers,, shed bitter temrs. but these only made the situation harder.for,, the,,bdys. The Fifth regiment 'did riot leave Spring-field for Chickamauga until late Saturday afternoon,, despite the fact that the first section of the Fifth's train left Camp Tanner'at an early hour in the morning. A quick run was made to East St. Louis. 'The Third regiment did not get away until 9 o'cl'ock Saturday night, in three sections. The two regiments will not arrive at Chickamauga before this afternoon. Several newspaper men who have been made war correspondents by their respective papers left Saturday with the regi-, ments, and will remain with the Illinois troops. Benjamin Kick, of Chicago, formerly Inspector of rifle practice of the Sixth regiment, has been appointed second lieutenant of company-1. Sixth infantry, Morrison, to succeed Lieutenant Ernest W. Weaver, resigned. Milwaukee. May 16.—The first section of the train carrying the Third regiment, Wisconsin volunteers, left Camp Harvey a few minutes before 4 p. m.. Saturday. The regiment was moved in three sections, which left about twenty minutes apart. The Third regiment is in charge of r<ilonel Moore. The second regiment, Colonel Born commanding, left Camp Harvey Sunday mornin; for Chickamauga in a train comprising three sectons. The first section pulled' out at 9:45, the second at 10:50 and the third at 11:20. The troops are being, conveyed over the Chicago, Mlwaukee and St. Paul railway as far as Chicago, thence south over the same route as' taken by the Third regiment. Island Lake, Mich., jfay 16.—All Interest centered In the departureof theThir-., ty-first Michigan volunteer infantry for Chickamauga. which took place yesterday afternoon. The route will be from thi's point to Detroit, to Toledo, to' Cin- • cinnati, to Chattanooga, and- thence to- the rendezvous. at Chickamauga, the trip occupying about three days. An ' enormous crowd saw the men off. About the only work to b'e done in. camp now is the fitting out of the remaining three regiments as far as the state can do so. All the men in camp have been examined, and the companies to come here have gone through the same process at their home stations. Bes Moines. la.. May 16.—The second rc-siment will be mustered into the fnited States service as the Fiftieth Iowa volunteers. The war department has been notified that the regiment "will be ready to leave Des Moines Tuesday. Transportation contracts have been made to take the troops to Chicka- rnausa park.

PALSIES HALF THE INDUSTRY. Effect of a Strike Declared by the Oshkosh Woodworkers. Milwaukee, May 16.—A special 'from Oshkosh, Wis., to Der Herold says the employes of the sash and door factories, at a meeting yesterday, decided not to gw to . work this morning—or _in other words, to strike. The state board of arbitration is here, but the woodworkers are not inclined to recognize them formally. It looks like a long fight. The manufacturers say it will be impossible to accede to the demands of the men. which are for a 25 per cent. Increase -in wages. Seven factories whose output is probably as large as that of the rest of tt\e country are involved. Scores on the Bull Field. Chicago.

Saturday morning the Auburn levee at Varner. the largest of its kind in this section, broke and the water rushed madly all over the lowlands:'carrying destruction to cattle, crops and property in its. way. In several places the Iron mountain track is fifteen feet under water. Gum swamp was flooded and many crops heretofore thought safe are ruined^.
