Now (hat UcMieral Wood has appointed his secretaries he hopes that olilce-seekers will, for Hie most part, transfer their attentions to those olhVlals, giving him lime to attend to necessary business. The entire press speaks favorably of the appointments and the secretaries themselves are conlldent of a successful administration. Senor Tamayo says: "I am llrmly convinced thnt. under (ieneral Wood, the secre- laries he has chosen will be able to do a great deal toward laying the foundations of Cuban government.

It Is not believed, however, that Senor Arostegul has been guilty of any Ir- I'pgularlt.v, although sullldent evidence has been laid before Collector Illlsn to warrant his suspension, pending investigation.

One dark tifffht during the siege of S;iiitmRO Harbor u Spanish Torpedo botU darted out under cover of darkness lo launch its deadly missile npainst an American war vessel. If she had been struck she would have gone to the bottom. What saved her? Was it her big 13-fnch guns? No, it was her search-light: the dazzling white beam of light that shot straight out like a sword-thrust through the darkness, revealed the approaching danger. What is it that saves thousands of men from death every day in the year when the deadly foe of disease Is creeping unsuspected upon them ? It is the white light of science; the educated understanding that reveals the source of danger and indicates the exact point of attack. While the ordinary doctor gropes around, with the feeble tallow-candle light of stereotyped, conventional, routine treatment. a physician like Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., instantly illuminates the subject with the clear day-light ray of practical knowledge; the irresistible search-light of advanced and life-sustaining science.
