"I "was forced to the use of Postum by being a dyspeptic myself from coffee drinking. Having so many patients suffering from indigestion in all its forms I looked for a remedy that would help in my practice and I found it in Postum. When made according to directions it is not only palatable but a luxury, and a certain cure in the majority of cases of in digestion and general nervous ex haustion.

Millionaire's Poor Stomach. i The worn-out stomach of the overfed millionaire is often paraded in the public prints as a horrible example of the evils attendant on the possession of great wealth. But millionaires are not the only ones who are afflicted with bad stomachs. The proportion is far greater among the toil ers. Dyspepsia and indigestion are rampant among these people, and they suffer far worse tortures than the millionaire un'ess they avail them- j selves of a standard medicine like Green's August Flower, which has been a favor'te household remedy for all stomach troubles for over thirty-five years. August Flower rouses the torpid liver, thus creating appetite and insuring perfect digestion. It tones and vitalizes the entire system and makes life worth living, no matter what your station.

The Senute today passed the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill without debate and then renewed consideration of the Isthmian question. Mr. Fulton spoke in support of tha course Of the administration in connection with the Panama revolt and Mr. Carmack, of Tennessee, and Mr. Overman, of North Carolina, in opposition thereto. Mr. Overman had not hitherto made his position on the treaty known and his speech revealed the attitude of probably the last doubtful memJber'of the Senate. The speech was Mr. Overman's maiden effort in the senate. Mr. Overman based his opposition on the ground that the United States had violated the obligations of the provision of the treaty of 1846 guaranteeing Colombia's sovereignty pvsr the Isthmus of Panama, in connection with the recent rebellion in Panama. He said that the course of the United States in connection with the rebellion had had the effort of tying the hands and feet of Colombia and added that in view of this fact there was no wonder that the revolution was bloodless. He could not bring himself to condone the wrong done and must therefore, cast his vote against the treaty. Mr. Carmack restated his views in opposition to the treaty, saying that he felt impelled to do so because of the fact that he had received a number of petitions asking him to support it. Mr. Carmack announced' his great desire that there should be a canal, but said he did not believe that the fate of the canal is involved in the treaty. because he was satisfied that . if the President could not get a canal via the Panama route he would follow the Spooner law and accept the Nicaragua route, "for," he said,, "much as the President likes to have his own way, he likes better to be President." He added that "There are limits to che lawlessness of this administration." Mr. Carmack safd that the south is so situated as to render it liaible to feel a tendency toward imperialism. In support of this statement he re- fered to the abolition of a postoffiee in Mississippi and declared that the President had held-up as a model the governor of a northern state who had given refuge in his state to a murderer whose crime had been committed im a southern state. He declared that the President was actuated in his course in this matter by the fact that the murdered man was a Southern Democrat. Mr. Carmack also charged that the President had spoken with contempt of Congress and said that he should be taught that "he is not the entire government." The senate adjourned until tomorrow. THE HOUSE. Washington. February 9. The house devoted the entire session today to consideration of the resolution treport- ed from elections committee No. 3 un seating Mr. Howell. Democrat and declaring Mr. Connell. Republican who contested the election, to have been elected from the Tenth Pennsylvania district. A vote will be taken tomorrow. What Clogs Republican Politics in the i South. What makes the Republican party have such a hard time in the South is plainly pictured in the Congressional Record's report of the witty speech of Representative J. Adam Bede. a Republican member of the, Minnesota delegation, air. Bede had the bread ih of mind to say this: "I realize the South has certain troubles of her own. We know that peculiar institutions make peculiar burdens. For a few hundred years a certain part of our country had a peculiar institution that has brought its awn peculiar burdens which they of that section must needs bear. I for my part will never add one feather weight to the burden which is resting upon them." Whereupon the Congressional Record observes that there was "applause on the Democratic side." Now, why-should the applause have been confined to the Democratic side? Why didn't Mr. Bede's Republican colleagues taKe part It is the refusal of the Republican party of the nation to get straight on this question that makes its case o bad in the south. Until or unless our people understand that the Republican party as a whole has no disposition to meddle with the local race question, they will not be disposed to vote for Republican tickets.
