One furnace has already been blown out, laying off 100 men. Fran- els Hinton, the manager of the mills, said today that he could not say when operations would be resumed. Buyers, he said, were not anticipating their wants, but were only purchasing to supply immediate necessities. This made a poor prospect for disposing of the stock on hand. Deafness Ciuiuot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. 1 There is only one vny to cure Deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucus lining of the Eustuchian Tube. When this tube gets lullamed you have a rumbling sound or Imperfect hearing, and when it Is entirely closed Deafness is the result, and unless the inllammution can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will bo destroyed forever, nine cases out of ton are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an iuihuued condition of the mucus surfaces.

Woodville Roekhill, the chief clerk of the state department, has a well-earned reputation as an intrepid and extensive traveler and explorer, and no on to look at his youthful face and tall erect figure would imagine he had endured the hardships that have marked his adventurous career, says the Washington Star. At the age oi 10 years he left his American home t<. go to France for hiis education, finally passing through the military school of St. Cyr and. serving for three years in the foreign legion in Algeria. He after ward saw service in New Mexico anc on the frontiers of the United States and then joined the diplomatic service of his country in China. After ovei four years tin Poking and Korea he goi off on his first journey to Eastern Till bet, as the result of which he wrote what nmst be considered as the best of the recent works on that strange country. The experience gained in that remarkable journey made in 1880 led him to 'undertake a second one to complete has researches among the Thibetan tribes of the northeast and to the northeast and to extend 1 his explorations toward the interior as far as possible. In conversation Mr. Rockliill said: favored me to be able to reach India by a route of which I had heard tell lead- Ing to Shigatse dn Ulterior Thibet without passing on Lh'asa, territory, for iu tills latter country I knew I should meet insurmountable obstacles, man- raised biUTiors more' difficult to overcome than any snow-covered mountain or wind-swept desert." Urged on diplomatically by his visitor, who had become interested in the subject, Mr. Roekhill gave a graphic de- scriptou of his experience in th,e laud of the Grand Lama. Leaving Peking December 1, 1891, he said he traveled to the frontier town this region and so wild that it could not be approached. On July 2 the last provisions were eaten and from that date to the 7th the party subsisted wholly upon tea. On the latter day a small encampment of Thibetans Avas reached and a little fcorl purchased. The next day a valley was entered dotted over with tents. It was the pasture lands of the Nam- ra Thibetans and Lh'asa governed country. The head man refused to give the party food unless Mr. Rockhill agreed to await the arrival of the head chief, who would decide whether he should be allowed to proceed south or be sent back to the north. After six days' discussion with the chief and several officials from Lh'asa a com promise was effected ami Mr. Rockhill and his three Chinamen, with an escort of ten Thibetan soldders, started eastward to reach the frontier post of Nagchuck'a on tho high road from Kohonor to Lh'asa. After ten days hard riding through mud and in tho rain the high road wni reached, and tjie escort turned back, but Mr. Rockhill had not gone many miles when he fell in with a large caravan going to Lh'asa from Kumbum, and he was recognized by some of tht on this expedition "I hoped if fortune ' In making Dobbins' Electric Soup (ten cents a biir) for twenty-six years, discoveries have uui'ii made out of. which has grown Dobbin"' new I'eifecl Soap, iJe u bar, worlh double any 5; 1 soap made.

It is conceded that the Royal Baking Powder is the purest and strongest of all the baking powders. The purest baking powder makes the finest, sweetest, most delicious food. The strongest baking powder makes the lightest food. That baking powder which is both purest and strongest makes the most digestible and wholesome food. Why should hot every housekeeper avail herself of the baking powder which will give her the best food with the least trouble ? Avoid all baking powders sold with a gift or prize, or at a lower price than the Koyal, as they invariably contain alum, lime or sulphuric acid, and render the food unwholesome. Certain protection from alum baking powders can be had by declining to accept any substitute for the Royal, which is absolutely pure, roads stnrting from swell widely separated points as Leh ill Laclak, ami Peking, bad finally met iu the heart of Thibet." On August 22 Mr. R'H-Lhill rau'hevl the town of Ilhvoche, a place famed for its beautiful temple and picturesque situation at the toot of steep forest- clad mountains, between which winds a broad swift river, here spanned by a members'of Tt"who "had" sec'iiVm 'on substantial bridge of huge pine logs. former visits to the famous lamasery. , Passing to the south of the oily oi "They were aghast at the meeting so Ch'amdo, to which town Mr. Roekhill, near Nagehnka," said "Mr. Itockhill. like his predecessor, Captain Bower, If we arrived at the place togethei as refused admittance, the high road to they would be refused permission to China was readied at Pmigdc rvmtmn,. nn < ioumev. for they stages south of Ch'amdo), and continue on 'iheir journey, for they would be undoubtedly suspected of having guided me tihere and of having otherwise assisted me in evading the universally orders against foreigners.

Kwb P molstenw passed through the pasture lands of the Ch'aliar Mongols. After a few days spent at Kuei-hua Ch'eng he continued west and crossing the Yelow rivei —here 400 yards wide—on the ice at Ho-k'ou he crossed the Ordos Mongols country and afterward Alashau. Again entering China proper his route led through, Ning-hsia, Lanchou and Hsi- ning, the westernmost town in China on tlie high road to Thibet. Near Hsi-nbig is the famous lamas- ory of Kumbum, readied February 11, from which place Mr. Roekhill had started on his first journey to Thibet, arid here he again repaired to get tlie men he had then had with him and make up his caravan. T)h e men responded at once to his call, and while his head man was making the necessary purchases 'of food, clothing, horses, mules, etc. he made al trip of a fortnight to tlie valley of tlie Yellow river to visit the Turkish tribes called "" (or "Salaris") and tlie. agricultural Thibetan tribes of the same district. There, are no traditions to indicate when they came to .China from Snmar- caud. They nqw number about 40,000 pel-sons. On March 14 Mr. Rockhill and party left for Thibet by an unexplored route, passing south of Koho-nor and along the foot of the mountains to the south side of the Ts'aidnm, making several excursions '.on tlie way, one of special importance frpm the Mongol village of Shang to Lake, Tosunor to determine by astronomical observations the position of this shept of water, discovered by him in 1889. The party with Mr. Rockhill consisted originally of five Ohlnese, but one had to be invalided nonie a few days after 'leaving Kum- bum and two others deserted him at Shang. *He was able to hire at tins place an old Chinese trader. With these three, men, assisted for a while by a Mongol and then by a Thibetan guide, he traveled until he reached China again in October, 1892. Speaking of the credulity of the Thi- betans Mr. Rockhill said: "More than one I have overheard saying that I had a battalion of soldiers concealed in the little camera I carried with me. My prismatic compass, others contended, enabled me to detect treasures in the earth and to see the farther side of mountains and with my sextant I angled for the sun." On May 24 the final start for Thibet Avas made from tlie Naichi-gol in west- em Ts'uidam and a general southwesterly direction to west of where Prje valsky and Carey crossed tho range was followed until July 7, when a point some thirty miles from the northwest comer of the great central Thi- betan Lake called Tengrinor by the Mongols and Dolma-namts'o by the Thibetans was reached. Between the Naichi-gol and the Tsia- dam the party endured great hardships, the high attitude ranging from 14,000 to 17,000. feet above sea level, terrible days in an unavailing discussion with the Nnpch'u > >M>-> •••<• *• *'"> route to be followed. One day a chief came across the river to see the strange visitor and find out what he had for sale or what he wished to buy, and from him Mr. Rockliill learned that the Danch'u where he was camped marked te eastern boundery in this part, of the country of Lh'asa territory. The chief told him that if he would come across the river to him he would assist him to cross tlie country, get new horses and ultimately reach Ch'amdo and thence China. The explorers crossed the Danch'u July 27 and entered the territory of Jyade or the "Chinese Province," governed by native chiefs appointed by tho Chinese Minister resident a Lh'asa (or LWaso. Aiubani). This important province was separated from Lh'asa by the Chinese in the seventeenth century, in view of the enmity between people, who profess the Bonbo re- ligou (a form of the devil worship or shamanism, which obtained at one time or another through most of Asia, though now mixed up with lamanism to such an extent that it is hardly distinguishable from it) and the followers of the yellow and red sects of Buddhism living on Lh'asa soil. One of the chiefs of Jyade traveled with the. party as far as the Such'u, the main stream of the upper Jyama nu ch'u (the Salwen), Thence to Mer-dzong the party received tlie greatest kindness from the people and the Bonbo lamas, whose liberal views and readiness to accept new ideas was much admired. All the feeders of the upper Jyama nu ch'u were crossed, some forded and others crossed by means of a rawhide cable anchored to either side of the river and along which the travelers were drawn tied by their middles. On August 15 the pretty Batasumdo valley was reached and the next day the party came to the Seramdo-ch'u, where henilets, resembling from afar our mediaeval castles, crowned every hill and the whole valley was green with fields of waving boa-ley. On August 18 damp was pitched at Nar Peihu, the birthplace of his protector, the Deba Nor Jyaltsan, which is a few miles above the big village of Ch'ebo Ten- chin on the Ze-ch'u. "At tho last named place," sakl Mr. Roekhill, "came to me in the night and with much mystery a man, who showed mo a sheet of very soiled foolscap, asking me to translate the hues written on it and which a p'iling (foreigner) had given him a few months before. It was a certificate by H. Bower, stating (two from this point to China a Chinese escort was given tiie traveler and he was able to enjoy (?) all the luxuries of Chinese travel.
