deep, depending entirely on s healthy
condition of all the vital organs. If the
liver be inactive, you have a bilious look ;
if your kidneys be effected, yon have a
pinched look. Secure good health and
yon will surely have good looks. "Elec
tric Bitters" is a good Alternative and
Tonic. 'Acts directly on the stomach
liver and kidneys. Purifies the blood,
cures pimples, blotches and boils, and
gives a good complexion. Every bottle
guaranteed. Sold at Blakeley & Hough-
ton's drag store. 50 cents per bottle. 5
Pains in the cheat when a person hat
a cold indicate a tendency toward pneu
monia.' A piece of flannel dampened
-with Chamberlain's Pain Balm, and
bound on to the' chest over the 'seat ot
pain will promptly relieve the pain and
prevent the threatened attack of pneu
monia. This same treatment will cure

Preliminary Rbports of - toe Nicaragua
.. : Canal Commission. ' -i
ON THE LARGER
Senator Morgan Estimates That the
Excavating on the Big Ditch Can
Be Done for 100,000,000. .
Washington, Dec. 29. Copies of the
preliminary report r.f the Nicaragua ca
nal commission, of
Walker is bairman,bave been furnished
Senator Morgan and others interested
in the bill now pending in congress on
Three routes are sjoken of; namely
The old low level, the high level, or
Menocal route, and the intermediate
route, and all of these. Senator Morgan
savs. the commission considers feasible
of construction. '
For the purposeof arriving at an esti
mate of probable maximum cost,' the
commission submitted figures on the
low Uvei route, which the- senator says
is considered the longest and most ex
pensive. For this route Admiral Walk
er estimates the cost will be $124,000,000
and Professor Haupt $123,000,000, while
General Haines added twenty per cent
to the figures because of various condi-
tions, chiefly the question of the cost of
labor, which he thought it was impose!
ble to figure definitely.
The report, says the senator, shows
conclusively that the project is an en
tirely feasible one, and that in its con
struction thegorvernment has the choice
of any of the three routes
The senator believes, however, that all
of these figures are high, and expresses
the belief that $100,000,000 will cover the
entire cost of construction
Only About Four Hundred Dollars
Worth of Property Recovered.
Washington, Dec. 28. Not much of
value has been obtained from the wreck
of the Infanta Mai ie Teresa, according
to a report from United States Consul
McLain, at Nassau, who was charged by
the state department with the task of
recovering such of the property as could
be saved. His report just received at
the navy department, shows that the
marshal of the admiralty court had
gathered a lot of miscellaneous articles,
such as pieces of ropes, boxes of candles,
groceries, canned goods, lanterns, etc.
The valuation placed upon them was
$400, half of which sum would, under
the law, belong to the salvers. The con
sul reported that he should withhold
from sale an American flag, and in ap
proving his recommendation to that ef
fect, the navy department cabled him
also to preserve with the American flag
a British ensign which was among the
' Drydock on Columbia.
WA8HiNGTON,Dec.27. Senator McBride
has offered an amendment to the naval
bill, which provides for the construction
of a stone drydock on the Columbia river
and appropriates $200,000 for immediate
use in beginning the work. ' According
to the provisions of the amendment, the
dock shall be 700 feet in length, and its
other dimensions shall be sncb as to
accommodate the largest vessels in the
regular or auxiliary navy, either-existing
at the present time, or likely to be con
structed in the future.' The cost of the
dock when completed is not to 'exceed
$1,025,000. Provision is also made for a
board of naval officers, to be appointed
by the secretary of the navy, to select a
suitable location for the dock, $1000
being set aside to defray the expenses of
such a board.
Roberts Likely to be Expelled.
New Tobe, Dec. 29. A dispatch to
the Herald from Washington says:
Representative-elect Roberts, the Mor
man congressman from Utah, will prob
ably be confronted upon his arrival at
Washington to take his seat in the 56th
congress by a proposition of expulsion
because of his alleged polygamous
practices. Some of the ablest consti
tutional lawyers in the house who have
studied this now celebrated case declare
there is nothing in the constitution of
the United States to prevent Mr. Rob-
tan-ta trrm raking Ma seat, bnt thev add
that the house, by a two-thirds vote,
may expel him on the gronnd that he
is living in violation of the general laws
which govern the TJnJted States.

at that Dlace. The flames were first

The cottage was one of the most pre
tentions at the beach. It was built last
summer at a cost of $1200, and contained
furniture yalued at about $700. There
was no insurance. ' Sheriff Williams left
this afternoon to investigate the matter,
and if poseible apprehend the guilty
parties. ' -'
Garcia's Daughter Dead. ;
Thomasville, Ga., Dec. 27. Miss
Mercedes Garcia,' daughter of the late
Calixto Carcia, the Cuban leader, died
atthe . Masuni hotel, in this city, this
evening, of consumption. Mrs. Garcia
and her two daughters arrived here the
day General Garcia died in Washington,
and while at dinner received intelligence
of the death of the bead of the family.
The contents of the telegram were never
revealed to Miss Mercedes, who was at

Miss Mercedes when the end came. The

Cuba on the warship which the United
States has designated to convey the re
mains of General Garcia back to his
Orecon and Iowa Honored.
New York, Dec. '27. The Herald's
correspondent at Callao telegraphed that
the arrival of the United States battle
ships Oregon and Iowa at that port has
caused the greatest excitement and en
thusiasm. They entered the harbor at
7 o'clock in the morning and great
crowds went out to see them during the
Delegations representing the Cuban.

the warships. They presented to each a
gold plate. With the - name changed,

cers and crew of the United States war

combat off Santiago de Cuba on the 3d

scene of the disaster presents a terrible
spectacle, the debris of the avalanche
covering a square mile. Tne hotel, with
eight bonses, and 12 other buildings,
were swept into a great heap of match

outbreak of fire amid the ruins. Three

Two Pointed Questions Answered
Wbat is the use of -making a better
article than your competitor it you can
not get a better price for it?
Ans. As there is no difference in the
price the public will buy only the better,
so that while our profits may be smaller
on a single scale they will be much
greater in the aggregate.
How can you get the ' public to know
your make is the best?
If both articles are brought prominent
ly before the public both are certain to
be tried and the public will very quickly
pass judgment on them and rise only the
