"Dr. Greene's Servnra Saved My Life- Felt the Good Effects Immediately,," "Two years ago in January I began to get poorly In health and my husband called in the doctor, and I was put uoder medical treatment. I had sharp, prickling pains between my snoulder blades, grew thin and pale and had great difficulty in lyiog down. My blood was poor; my food distressed me, aud after eating H, would seem as though it had turned Into rocks; It would roll about my stomach and cause me great distress. Nothing the doctor did for me seemed to do me any good, I grew steadiy worse, and finally in February I was forced to take my bed. I grew weaker and weaker.and after awhile, changed pbystlcians. This did no good, and I changed WONDKKS will never cease. Water is to be used to christen the battleship Kentucky. Many, many months uo, a bottle of rare old bourbon was sent to Secretary Herbert to be used in christening the Kentucky. It can mot be found in the archives of the »avy department. Both bottle and •ontents have disappeared. It was, •erbaps, put to better use than christening a warship. Waste of a more -reptous fluid will be avoided by using water to christen battleships. But Kentucky has so much of each that •either would be missed. MoKinley Prosperity. The mill operatives of New England votod well nigh unanimously for McKInley. Like the wa K e-earners •C the west, employed by corporations, they were threatened with loss •t employment and reduction In wages in case they voted for Bryan. The recent reduction In wages throughout New England has created intense bitterness. A correspondent •t the New York World, writing from Till River, says: "McKInley prosperity Is a phrase lull of bitterness to the thousands of »111 operatives in this city. When It was inaugurated they paraded the •treats, carrying brooms and banners lauding it to the skies. The opera- Mvea of uaott mill were marshalled In •ompanies and they marched behind Banners that bore all kinds of words •f hope and good sheer. Today those words are a mockery. "The city went overwhelmingly lor MoKlnley at the late presidential re but still kept falling. doctors again, "The last doctor called in another physician and they decided that the uijyoiwn.il-* ****** «""*„• — ••- " — cause oC my sickness was enlaregment of the liver, A coarse of treatment was decided upon and tried faithfully, but I got lower and lower, until at last the doctor said I could not live more than two or three days at the most. The day this statement was made, a neighbor told my husband how much his wife had been benefited by Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy and urged him to 'try it In my case. It was the last hope, but he bought a bottle and I commenced its use. I telt the good effects of the Nervura almost immediately, and kept on taking it and gaining all the time. I commenced to use the Nervura the second day ot April, and before the Cotton Strike, The deplorable consequences of labor ind capital looking on each other as jnortal enemies are once more witnessed in the strike in the New England cot- con mills. The old warfare -will undoubtedly go on in all the ranks of labor till the contestants mutually discover that their interests are one and the same. Then some system will be devised whici) shall protect both. The 15,000 cotton operatives who went out at the various New England mills struck because of a threatened 10 per cent reduction in their wages, which they declared were already too small to enable them to live comfortably. Workers in the New Bedford mills strnck against a 10 per cent reduction iu the Bummer of 1895. The matter was compromised 'by their finally returning to work at a reduction of 5 per cent. But they declare they found their concession circumvented by a system of fines •whereby the owners quite made up tbe 6 per cent which they had yielded from their original cut The operatives rent their houses from tbe companies, aud tbey declare these houses and flats are mint for human habitation. This, too, is one of the grievances of the cotton Workers. Mill owners on their part affirm that the price of cotton goods is so low in the market that they cannot get enough for their product to pay former prices. This state of things they attribute to overproduction of cotton weaves, particularly owing to the establishment of mills in tbe south, where labor and all the raw material needed are so cheap that New England manufacturers can no longer compete at the old price to their operatives. Some who have studied the situation carefully assert tha£ markets could be found throughout tbe world for all the cotton goods made in New England if the mill owners would bestir themselves and find these markets abroad. American cotton goods are coming to be of beautiful quality. If this is true, then tbe mill owners ought to use all diligence to find this wider market.^ It would be a satisfactory settlement all round. They could then pay their faithful operatives living wages and make a profit themselves. Colored Artist In Stained Glass. At the Nashville exposition one artist received both a prize medal and a diploma of merit for designs in color and for crayon cartoons. The noteworthy fea- tnre in this artist's case was that he is a negro, the son of slave parents. He v ? as born in Wilmington, N. C., in 1854, and the state has no living son of whoia she has more reason to be proud tban of tbis artist, William A. Hazel. That fate took him away from the south and located him iu Boston in his early boyhood may be the reason why today he is a famous artist instead of a barber or waiter. He was educated in the Cambridge grammar school and went to work as janitor of a building in which an architect had his office. Hazel was instinctively drawn toward the architect's work, and at length be- rame his office boy. He was with the architect seven years, the last three as •i re"ular draftsman. Hazel picked up his °art education himself, learning everywhere and stopping at no task which •would perfect him. But his place v?as not that of an architectural draftsman. He found his real work after a year or two in the stained glass department of a large decorative establishment. He found that through stained glass pictures he could express the artistic visions and ambitions ' that filled him. He has now a studio of his own in Minneapolis, where he executes orders for church windows and other designs in his line. He is at present engaged on a design for a memorial rose window in a Minneapolis church. Tbe subject he has chosen is tbe vision of St. John in Revelation. ,*!,*. Mr. Hazel is only another proof that a man can make his own place in life if he has tbe grit to do it, no matter what obstacles are iu his path. Forty-nine colored men out of 50 in Hazel's circumstances would be now engaged m some menial employment. But Hazel was the fiftieth maa, and he is one of the leading artists of America. He says he has found bis color no bar to success in his profession. The "Domestic" Office. Now is the time to provide your. self with a good Sewing Machine at a very tow price.

The transportation of our crops has made lots ot work tor the railroads whose managers got votes tor McKInley just as the New England manufacturers go'S them, by false .romines, by threats and by coercion. While the railroad* have nut reduced wages the? are BOW requiring men in the transportation service to do what it formerly required double the number of men to do. While the net earnings of the railroads have Increased enormously there has been no increase in the wages of employes. There have been more wage reductions since the McKInley wave of prosporlty struck the country than w&ge Increases. The farmers are in a little better •hape on account of the great demand abroad for bread stuffs, otherwise they would have been nearly ruined. s , month of April was gone I was out of bed and for" good.

The financial bills introduced this session of congress are in the main as follows: Tbe Teller resolution providing that United States bonds, rn^be paid in Eilv 8 r dollars; a, bill lor tlw retirement of the greenbacks and United States treasury notes and the substitution therefor of back currency, with the additional permission to national banks to issue circulation up to the full amount of their bond deposits. The Elkins bill is a little different. It would restrict the issuance of government notes to those of $5 and upward and •would permit banks to be established with a capital of $25,000 in towns of not less than 3,000 population. There is also a bill for the free coinage of silver at the ratio of 20 to 1, The bill favoring the retirement of government notes and-giving larger privileges to the national banks was drawn in accordance with the "recommendations of the monetary commission.

The Republican party now demands that gold be made the sole money ot final payment in liquidating the government deot, and the secretary of the treasury has, without authority ot law, surrendered the government's option to pay government debts In either gold or silver. The bond-holder h8iS bsen given the right to choose the kind ot money the bonds shall be paid with. He chooses gold and the privilege thus accorded the bondholder!,ban led to the rapid depreciation of silver and a corresponding appreciation of gold. It has already forced the government to '"»-«««= its bonded indebtedness to revolution tio accept her terms. It is probably true that whan Blanco started out for a conference with the Cuban general in chief, Maximo Gomez, he carried with him a large «um of money to buy up anybody whom he could. A dispatch to the New York Sun, usually well inform^ as to the Cuban side of aSairs, announced that General Gomez prepared for Blanco's visit by breaking through tbe Spanish trocha and going to the"Cuban President Maso at Cama- gney to lay the whole story before him. Thus the Cuban government was laade ruady 1'or Blanco. Reed's Congiresa for CMd. Th* lower housei of congress has declared by a majority of 50 that government bonds are not payable in •oin.

The gold! conspirators have the MKV v.. of "tlw country that iteration of allw «olnag« was the American tas payers at their mercy as long as they are permitted to exercise the option that clearly belongs to the government. Had Bryan been elected the gold conspirators would havu been balked. The government's option to pay Its obligations in either g;old or silver would! have been respected in the Interest of the people who muss pay the bonds. The greaij and uxtraordlnary demand for gold woulcl have ceased and its purchasing power would have lessened. The demand for silver would have in- creaiiied and the bond-holders would have been the leaders in the movement to force silver up to par with gold. Legislation and an unfriendly governmental policy are the thinjrs that have injured silver and mad« it a »f >secondary consideration. The killing by Spanish soldiers of tbe Cuban general, Nestor Aranguren, comes strangely soon and sudden after the event that first brought him prominently before the public eye—the execution of Captain Ruiz, That execution seemed harsh and terrible, yet when is is looked at from the irtandpoint of military usages it appears justifiable and will so be regarded in history.

I am once more at my work and but for this excellent medicine I should be on my back. I take great pleasure in writing this letter because so many people are sufferers from this trouble, who like myself did not know where to look for a permanent, reliable safe cure, Experience with the Pyramid Pile Cure in the past three years has demonstrated to the medical profession, as well as to thousands of sufferers from piles, that it is the safest and most effectual pile cure ever offered to the public, containing no opiates or poisons of any kind, pain- leas and convenient to handle, and being sold by druggists at 50 cents and $1 per box, is within the reach of every sufferer. Very frequently two or three boxes have made a complete cure of chronic cases that had not yielded to other remedy for years. There la scarcely a disease more aggravating and obstinate to cure than the various forms of piles, and It is a common practice to'use ointments, salves and similar preparations containing dsmgerous poisons to remove the trouble. The Pyramid has superceded all of these ineffectual remedies and no one suffering with any rectal trouble will make any mistake In giving tbe Pyramid a trial.
