BE AN ADMIRAL
Price for Armor-Plate Cut ' Down
River and Harbor Bill in
Washington, Feb. 23. The naval ap
propriation bill finally passed the house
this afternoon, alter fonr days of acri
monious debate, most of which was
spent UDon the question of rehabilitating
the naval academy at Annapolis In ac
cordance with the scheme inaugurated
by the appropriation of $50,000 in the
last naval bill, and the proposition to in
crease the maximum price to be paid for
armor-plate to $545 per ton, the existing
law limiting it to $400. Upon both
propositions the naval committee suf
fered signal defeats. The amendment to
build a great armor plant was ruled out
upon a point, of order, but after debate,
in which the price to be paid for armor
was cut down from $515, the price which
the committee insisted was being paid
for the new Krupp armor, to $445, a
proviso wag also added precluding the
government fiom paying more than was
paid by any other foreign government
for similar armor. When the bill was
reported to the house, BoutelU attempt
ed to secure a reversal of the verdicts of
the committee of the whole on the naval
academy and armor-plate amendments,
but in most cassc he was defeated, a
motion to recommit the bill made by
him being voted down, 79 to 155. An
other victory over the committee was se
cured by the a '.option of a provision to
the naval bill creating the rank of admi
ral of the'aavy.Thi was accomplished by
Mooiy, who offered a copy of the senate
bill creating this rank as an amend
ment to the naval bill. The amend
ment was clearly subject to the point of
order against it raised by Boutelle, but
the sentiment of the bouse was so ap
parently unanimously in favor of the
amen intent that he withdrew the point
of order and it was adopted without a
dissenting vote. The naval committee
bad amended the senate bill so as to
create alto trie rank of vice-admiral, but
Moody's amendment was the original
senate bili without the provision.
The house declined to consider the
Brown-Bwanson contested election cate
in the fourth Viiglnia district by a vote
of 132 to 00. This is the second attempt
to call op this case.
During the entire session today the
senate had under consideration the river
and harbor bill. Good progress was
made, 89 panes having been disposed of,
with the exception of one amendment.

GENERATED IN THE HUMAN BODY
The Result of Imperfect Digestion of
Every living thing, plant or animal,
contains within itself tb.9 erra of cer
tain d:cay and deaih.
In the human boly thee germ if
death (oiled ly toitn'i' Ttomalnes),
are usually the result of imperfect diges
tion of food ; the result of indigestion or
The stomach, from abuse, weakens,
does not promptly and thoroughly digest
the food. The result is a heay, sodden
mass which ferments (the first process of
decay) poisoning the blood, making it
thin, weak and lacking in red corpuscles ;
poisoning the brain causing headaches,
pain iu the eyes.
Bad digestion weakens the 'heart,
causing palpitation and finally bringlug
on disease of this very important organ.
Poor digestion poisons the kidneys,
causing bnght's diseaee and diabetes.
And this i so btcause every organ,
every nerve depends upon the stomach
alone for nourishment and renewal, and
weak digestion show itself not only in
loss of appetite and fleth, but in weak
nerves and muddy complexion.
The great English scientist, Huxley,
said the best start in life is a sound
stomach. ' Weak stomachs fail to digest
food properly, because they lack the
proper quantity of digestive a 'ids (lactic
and hydrochloric) and peptogenic pro
ducts; the most sensible remedy in all
cases of indigestion, is to take after each
meal one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets, because they supply in a pleas
ant, harmless form all the elements that
weak stomachs lack.
The regular use of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets will cure any form ot trouble
except cancer of the stomach.
They increase flesh, insure pure blood
strong nerves, bright eye and clear com
plexion, because all these result only
from wholesome fool well digested.
Nearly all druggists sell Stuart' Dys
pepsia Tablets at 50 cents lull sized
package or by mail by enclosing price to
