Ucatrlce. The child moved over the lloor with an ofl'ort, but seemed filled with joy at finding her mother, Beatrice Shay. The reit of the happening li bent told in the mother's own words. She iu<d: "Ou the 28th of Scut. 1890, while in the bloom of health Beatrice 'wiis suddenly mid severely alllicted with spinal meningitis. Strong and vigorous before, in live weeks she became feeble and aull'ered from a paralytic utroko which twisted her head hack to the aide and made it impossible for her to move a limb. Her speech however was not all'ectcd. We called in our family doctor one of the most experienced and successful practitioners in thocity. lie considered the case a very grave * one* "The child's body was bandaged to keep her in position. Hnon it was seen that other means must be adopted. Little Ueutrice, much against her will, was housed tip in a plaster paris jacket which she wore for several months. "In the hope of receiving some help tor tlw oliild we consulted iti turn nin« »f II most prominent physicians of Freeport. Two of them applied electric batteries, but none of the doctors' treatment gave any lasting benefit. It was then that my hujiband'a opportune visit to a drug store brought ui the means which led to the on re of our child. While there lie learned of the wonderful power of Dr. Williams' Pink Pill* for P»le People, and decided to buy some for our daughter's benefit. "We tried them and the hopes which we had fixed regarding their merits were much more than realized uefore one box of the pilli had been used. " Busy in my kitchen one afternoon I wa» sUrtled with the cry of' Mamma'from little Beatrice who was creeping toward me. I had placed her on an improvised bed in the parlor comfortably close to the fireside and given her some books and playthings. She became tired of waiting for me to come back and made up her mind to go to me, so her story ' My Pink Pills made me walk,' which she tells evuryone who comes To our house, was then for the first time verified. She lias walked ever since. She has now taken about nine boxes of the pills and her pale and _.y. She icforc taking r ill» ulie could rest but a few time. I shall be gluci if anything that I can any for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, may be of benefit to those in pain. There must be many children who sufler as Beatrice did and I hope that my story will be noticed by their parents." A specific for all forms of weakness is obtained in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. The blood is vitalized and becomes pregnant with the elements of life. The nervous system is reorganized, all irreguloritiei arc corrected, strength returns and disease disappears.

SCHOONKU AMI) CHEW LOST. Record of the Storm's Accidents Includes One That Is Fatal. Chicago, Nov. 12.—The record of the mosl recent storm, as far as known, shows death and destruction enough to bear out ihe assertions of Ihe local weather bureau that the gale was one of the worst thai ever swept the great lakes.

Thai, as the victim of thai parllcular fury which sometimes allacks a vessel and allows no quarler or escape. The Thai was loaded with Christmas trees to gladden Chicago homes and the dark green firs are scattered for miles along the shore where, It Is expected, the bodies of Ihe crew will soon appear among them. All hands on board, four or more, are supposed to have perished when Ihe schooner, which hailed from Slurgeon Bay, WIs., foundered off Glencoe. Two llfeboals were washed ashore, bottoms upward.

Washington, Nov. 12.— "We have received confirmatory information from every district in the United States," said Chairman Babcock of the Republican congressional committee. "This shows that the Republicans will certainly have thirteen majority and perhaps more than that over the combined opposition In the next house of representatives. Any changes which subsequent returns may make will be In the direction of Increasing our majority. The straight-out Republican strength shown will be 185." Representative Cochran from the Nineteenth New York district was at Republican headquarters. On the face of returns so far received he has been defeated by 14 votes, but Mr. Cochran claims that when the votes of the soldiers of his district, now at Camp Meade, are at hand, they will more than overcome this majority and show that he is elected. The Republicans are counting on this as a strong probability, In which case they would have fifteen majority in the house. Word has been received at headquarters that In the Second California and .the Twelfth Texas .districts, which were considered doubtful, the Democratic nominees have been elected. Chairman Babcock has received Information Indicating thnt the Republican nominees In the Tenth Kentucky, Ninth North Carolina and Ninth Virginia will contest the election of their Democratic opponents and that George H.

Wnr Department UeHtlcit to Send a Miff Force at Once. Washington, Nov. 12.—The dispatch of the army of occupation to Cuba from Savannah, has been delayed twenty- four hours. It was expected that the Manitoba would have reached Savannah Friday from New York and set sail with the larger part of the Eighth cavalry for Neuvltas. The quartermaster's department said that while there was urgent reason for Ihe dis- palch of troops to Culm at this time the notice was so short that It was not possible lo have a Irunsporl al Savannah In time for the shipment of Iroops. Al the adjutanl general's office 11 was slated that the war department desired the army of occupallon lo be landed In Cuba al Ihe earliest possible moment.
