Little Dispatch' Boat Bancroft to Best After'Her Long Voyage. Minister Terrell. Owing to Sensations! Reports, Will Not Request Her ' Passage of Dardanelles. ; Washington,. Oct. 15.— The .dispatch vessel Bancroft reached Smyrna Thursday morning, according to a cablegram received at the navy department from Admiral Self ridge. • It is stated at the navy department that the little vessel must have exhausted her conl supply in the 1800 mile voynge the length of the Mediterranean and she will undoubtedly remain at Smyrna for several days at least to refill her bunkers. It will then, depend entirely upon circumstances whether she will proceed to her intended eventual destination at Constantinople. While mi'iet reigns at the Turkish capital Minister Terrell •w.ill probably not^ask for the flrhinn permitting her to pass .the straits, especially in view- of the recent alarming publications, attributing to her a distinctly hostile mission. These reports are known to l-iave-be'en mortifying to the Turkish authorities, as they were so totally nt variance with the uniform and repealed assurance oT this government that- the- presence of all our ships in the Levant was amicable. It is believed, thurerore, that the effects of those stories will be allowed to subside before the little ship pro- needs to Tchnimk, »t the en trance of the Pnnhnielles, nnd that Minister Terrell will nwait a niore favorable opportunity to ask her safe passage, to the Golden. Horn. With th« Bancroft's arrival, Admiral Selfridfri- now has his CUT tire command'' directly under his eye, and, according' to his instructions, he will 'n't once renrrnngc their crews to bri.is 1 together : all the 'men \yhose terms- of '.enlistment: are about expiring on the M'nrblelu'nd in .order-that she mav leave, with them Cor .New, York. This portion of -the programme can only be altered by. contingencies arising which might make it advisable to keep the entire fleet together for some further time. Knight* of Golden Eufflo.

There i» comfort in the knowledge, thut so muny forms of sickness are not due to any actual dis- eiise, but simply to a constipated condition of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup of .Pigs, promptly removes. That is why it is the only remedy with millions of families, andis everywhere esteemed so highly by all who value, good health. Its .beneficial effects are Sue to tbe fact, thut itis the one remedy which promotes internal cleanliness without debilitating tho organs on which it acts. It is therefore alf important, in order to get its beneficial effects, -to note'when you .purchase, that you have the genuine article, which is manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by all reputable druggists.. . : • If ;in the enjoyment, of good-health, and the system 'is regular, laxatives or other remedies are then not needed. If afflicted with any actual disease, one may be commended to thamostskillfnl physicians, but if in need of a laxative, one should hove the best, and with tbe well-informed!^ everywhere, Syrup, of Figs stands-highest and. is most largely used and gives most general satisfaction.

HeriStory of How 1 She Was &•'•: ; ,' stored to,', Health. : ; ! Condition Before ana After the Birth of ller Child. From every city, town and hamlet on this vast continent,, come letters from Buffering women; from those whosa physicians have been unable to assist them, or from that numberless class whose confidence in Mrs: Pinkham'g ad* vice and tho curative properties of her Vegetable Compound U unbounded. Every letter received from women is recorded, and hundreds of •volumes of cases treated aid in furnishing; practical ,'mforniation for the _^^ women of to-day. No letters are published without the request of the. writer. The strictest confidence is observed. The following; letter represents thousands:— " I always enjoyed good health until six months before the birth of w babe. Then I was very weak; my back ached nil the time. My physicians said I would : be all rig-lit after the birth of the child, but I was not, although at that time I had the best of care. The pains in my back wore almost unbearable. I had leucdrrboea in its worst form; menstruations were painful. . "Any work or care would entirely unnerve me. When my babe was 11 months old, friends persuaded me to take Lydia E. Pinltham's Vegetable Compound. Before 1 had taken one bottle I felt the effects. My back did not.oche so badly, and I felt stronger. After taking four bottles I felt well. My ambition returned, menstruations were painless, leucorrhoea entirely cured, and 1 could take care of my babe and do my housework. I shall always recommend your Vegetable Compound for all women, especially for young mothers."—MBS. H. L. GOOLD, Oregon, \Vis. If Mrs. Goold had been well before the birth of her child, subsequent suffering would have been avoided. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound should always be taken befor* »nd after birth, in order that the system may withstand the shock. FASHIONS CHANGE BUT POZZONI'S Complexion POWDER REMAINS ALWAYS THE SAME.'
