Tho situation at present seems quite critical, but as yet there has beeu no official report made public by the investigating committee, and we can therefore but patiently await results. Even thought the committee should conolude that the Maine was blown up by design, yet that does not prove that it was doue at the instance of the Spanish government, and all the United States could do consistently, would be to demand an indemnity from Spain.

The bladder was created for ono purpose, namely, a receptacle for tho urine, and as such it is not liable to auy form of disease except by ono of two ways. The first way is from imperfect action of the kidneys. Tho second way is from careless local treatment of other diseases. CHIEF CAUSE. Uuibealthy urine from unhealthy kidneys is the chief cause of bladder troubles. N the womb, like the bladder, was created for one purpose, aud if uot doctored too much is uot liable to weakness or disease, except in rare eases. It is situated b.tck of anil very close to the bladder, lliei el'or auy pain, diseaso or inconvenience manifested in the kidneys, back, bladder or nriui'.ry pasnage is often, by mistake, al-tiibuted to female weakness orwninb trou ble of some sort. The error is easily made aud may bo as easily avoided. To find out correctly, set your urine asido for twenty-four hours; a sediment or settling indicates kidney or bladdertroublc. The mild and tho extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Snamp-Koot, the great kidney, and bladder remedy is soon realized. If you need a medicine you should have the best .
