2IUCH IS EXPECTED FROM THE

Prom tKe Port.
PARIS, April 2. The Franco-Italian
fetes at Tonion next -week ex now-.the
chief topic of Interest here. Spectacular
ly the festivities will be very brilliant,
while It Is generally co.ncede.d that the oc
casion -will rank as one of the most Im
portant historic events since the Franco
Russian demonstration at the same port.
"France Is not seeking an alliance with
Italy," said a French diplomat, who is
In close touch with the official ,rel.tions
of the two countrels. ""The Franco-Italian
demonstration at Toulon does not imply
that at all. "We have no reason to expect
that Italy will detach herself from the
triple alliance. On the contrary, we have
every reason to expect that she will
'xenew her adhesion. ,
"The great significance of the coming
event lies In the fact that it Indicates
the Irritation felt by Italy toward France,
which was .aroused by the French occur
patlon of Tunis and which, Rankling; In
the minds of Italian statesmen, has done
so much to Injure our mutual xelatlpns,
Is now entirely removed, giving place to
a desire of a better understanding be
tween France and Italy. We shall now be
"able to discuss the questions that are
pending between the two countries, nota
bly the political situation in "the Mediter
ranean, with a better disposition on both
ddes and a brighter prospect of a satis
factory understanding! The commercial
convention concluded last y-eaiL-wass an"
Important factor in bringing about this
feejlng between the peoples themselves.
.A great improvement in our mutual trade
lhas resulted from that convention. Silk
firms in Lyons and other manufactures.
In the southeastern districts of France

and other towns in ff orthern Italy. Corn-
merclal houses, in these latter cities hayef

"Thus' concludes the diplomat, ''while
the meeting of M. -Loubet and thq?Dilfce.
of Genoa, together with the Franco-Italian
.naval 'demonstration, must not "be
taken as a prelude to the withdrawal of
Italy from the triple alliance, ye't It may
herald a noteworthy modification of the
International situation. "We do not "wish
for a written convention with Italy. We
believe he re-establishrnent of thoroughly
cystematlc relations between the two peo
ples will prove of greater worth than any
Russia Shows Her Displeasure.
TOULON, April 3, There is much com
ment here at a strange and unexpected
order received by the Russian Admiral to
leave Toulon with his fleet, in order to
avoid meeting the Italian squadron here.
The Russian fleet arrived In these waters
to participate In the fetes attending Presl-
dent Loubet's visit.
. PARIS,. April 4. "The withdrawal of
the Russian squadron at Toulon," says
the Libre Parole, "is a brutal disavowal
of our government by an allied nation and
a condemnation of our policy toward
Italy. Moreover, It is a threatening warn
ing for the' Czar."
THREE TEMPLES BURNED.
Historic Buildings in Japan De
stroyed. VANCOUVER, P. a, April 2, Oriental
advices today recount the burning of the
celebrated Temple Hommongl, at Ikegaml,
the .night ,of March 3, The fire started in
the students dormitories, where 70 stu
dents were Teading late" iat night for a
pending examination. No supply iof water
was available, the buildings being situat
ed on a hill, and although about 1000 fire
men from Shlnagawa and the neighboring
districts hastened lo the scene, their exer
tions were of little, avail. Few of the
renowned places of Japan are more fa
miliar to foreigners than this flne and
"beautifully situated temple, standing in a
grove of noble trees, and commanding an
exquisite vista. It stood on the spot
where the, Buddhist Saint Uichiren died
in 12S2 Originally erected In the year
1275, It was re-erected after a conflagra
tion In the days of the Third Tokugawa
Shogun. Nothing now remains of the
imposing pile of edifices except the Sos
hido (founders') hall, the Shakado (Hall
of Shaka), the Hozo (treasure-house), the
Daldokorot (kitchen) and the Gojunoto
(drum tower). " Sparks from the burning
building were carried to the Temple
fMyokyo-In; which lies-at a distance of
about 120 yards, to the southeast, and it,
too, was destroyed. A few days" later the
famous Temple Seiken-Jl was destroyed
by fire at Okltsu.
Details of the terrible conflagration at
Baku are given as follows by the Japan
"Dispatches from BaTcu say that all
available hospitals are filled with suffer
ers from the fire, while the sheds on the
fair grounds are crowded with homeless
people. The flre broke out in the even
ing at meal time, and spread so rapidly
that many people were unable to escape
from their homes. Jt Is believed that the
conflagration was started by a discharged
employe, for the purpose of revenge, and
It is further reported that the oiaphtha
reservoir had been previously filled with
-water, -which, in overflowing, carried the
flaming fluid over the town, involving
scores of houses. Numbers of people
were seen attempting tb escape,, while
their bodies burned Ilk torches.' The
total number of victims Is not ascertain
able at present It is announced that 10
factories and five depots were burned
containing altogether '35,000,000 poods of
naphtha and naphtha refuse. It Is esti

rubles. Nine charred ebrrjEefe have hpn
recovered. One' fiondrdff and sixty per- J
sons were injured, by burning, 41 of them
severely, and six have succumbed to their
injuries. Many victims are still under the

lossefe cannot be fixed tdnlght, but con

Mrs. M-.. A. Close, of Nebraska, Was Cured ol
Incipient Consumption After AH Medical
Aid Had Failed-Read Her Letter.

Kearney, Neb , July 8, 1900.
Drs S. B. Hartman, Columbus; Ohio:
Dear Doctor " I desirs to expr2ss to you my slncsre'thanks. for
the interest you have shown in my case, and for the timely aid and
advice which has effected a cure of a3 bad a case of consumption
as could be well imag n;d.
Peruna arid Manalin have done what thirteen
of the best physicians in the country have failed to
do. For more than three years i doctored for con
sumption, and spent thirteen weeks in a Pu'm3n,ary
Sanitarium at Milwaukee, Wis; but finding myself
growing worse, ds a last resort, I came WeSst where I
was bedfast for many weeks, and the physicians
which my husband called gave no hips but said 'She
cannot possibly live more than a few days ' But thanks to Peruna
I fooled them all. In an incredibly shdrt time after I began to take
Peruna the hemorrhages stopped. I began to mend slowly at first,
but the improvement became more marked, and riow I can truth
fully say that tfiere is not the slightest trace of my old complaint
" I would have written you a long time ago, but have purposely
waited to see if the effect was lasting; and in conclusion i would
say, God b'ess you; arid keep you with us that you may go on with
your work of fneroy for many years to corns."-Mrs. M. A Close.
P. S. "l am g'6r to Visit friends in Wisconsin who never ex
peoted to see me alive again, so please forward mall to meat 579

AN OLD COLD.
Is Caiarrb, and Cafnrrfi. Leadd 16
The tendency of catarrh of the head is
to pass downward tlfrbupn the bropchial
tubes to the lunga. Any one who has
fiad catarrh of the fiead for a year or
more finds the dfafc'ftHe gradually progress
ing downward. In some cases the prog
ress Is repld, and in other cases it is. alow:
but sooner or later,. if catarrh is allowed
lo run, it will go to the lungs and set
tip the disease known as consumption.
It is Soubtfiil If consumption to et-er
caused by anything except catarrh.
The catarrh usually begins as a cold in
the head of throat, and is neglected until
U becomes chronic; then It begins to
dawn oil the victim that he has catarrh.

hdt rest easy until the catarrh Is entirely
cured. Thousands pay no attention to it
until it Is too late.
If Periina. is used the cold never be
comes chronic, and hence catarrh is pre
vented. But after catarrh has become
thoroughly established Peruna will cure
It. 'but it will take mnch longer. Even In
caaes where catarrh has attacked ths
lungs and the symptoms of consumption
have shown themselves, the Peruna will
cure. A great many cases of genulno
consumption hav been cured with Pe
runa, after the patient had been given up
to die, lis in the case of Mrs. Close.
If you do not derive prompt and satis
factory reaults from the use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a
full statement of your case, and he will
be pleased to give you his valuable ad
