UP-TO-DATE JOBWORK, At :
It is very unusual for a regular, physician of good reputation to publicly
endorse a proprietary remedy. We have often heard of cases where doctors
have secretly prescribed Acker's English Remedy, but it is most gratifying' to
receive the following voluntary letter
from C. F. Smith. M, D.,. the most
successful physician of Olean, N. Y. :
" Messrs. W. H. Hooker & Co.,
New York City: I wish to add my
professional testimony to the value
of your English preparation known
as Acker's English Remedy for Asth
ma, etc. In several instances, after I
have tried my utmost to give even
relief, I have prescribed your remedy,
. and it has acted almost like a miracle,
not-only relieving, but permanently
curing every one of the patients. I en
dorse the preparation as- one of the
most valuable additions to the prac
tice of medicine." v -
Such a frank endorsement as the
above is phenomenal. Coming from
so distinguished a member, of the
medical profession, it carries with it
an assurance which the public will be
sure to avail themselves of. It is rec
ommendations like this which make
it possible to' give the broad guaran-

the guards of the legations. The
rebels are now massing ontside of

themselves hopelessly outnumber

and two guns and maay rifles were
captured, after which- most of the
remaining troops' went over to the
rebels. They are now marching
side by Bide. ' It ' is believed . that
the 'Boxers' have the sympathy; of
the entire Manchurian army in the:
anti-foreign crusade, and there is
no doubt that they have the coun

Graham & Wells: - j
Washington, May 29. Such ad
vices as have reached here indicate
that the .situation in China is as
suming a very critical phase and
one calculated to tax the entire re
sources of the. Chiuese government.
The state department has been in
close communication with Mr. Con
ger, our minister at Peking, and the
navy department is doing its share
having placed the flagbhip Newark
as far up the, Pel Hp River as the
Taku forts, which is the nearest
point to Peking that the ship can
reach. - -
The operations ,of the "Boxers"
are increasing in magnitude. Their
demonstrations are no longer local,
and they appear to be governed in
their movements by some well -settled
designed :.They have murder
ed nine Methodist missionaries at
the town-of Pachow, and have clos
ed on Peking. Meanwhile,- the Chi
nese army is suspected of disloyal .,
ty, this belief vbeing strengthened
by wholesale desertions - of 3 the boI
diers to the. "Boxers." , :-i ; .
Minister Conger has appealed to
the state department for the protec
tion of a marine guard for his lega
tion. . The department has prompt
ly cabled him an authorization to
call upon the nearest United States
naval vessels for assistance. It is
not known yet whether he has avail
ed himself of the permission. The
ship he would naturally lock; to
would be the Newark, and it is as
sumed that he has already com
municated with Admiral Kempff
on board that flagship, i - :
The em harassing of the situation
is the cutting of communication by
rril between Taku and and Tien
Tsin and the capital, for. the "Box
ers" have burned the railroad bridg
esand there are probably only two
courses open to the marines who
wish to reach Peking a long over
land march through a hostile coun
try away from supporters, or a te
,diu8 voyage up the 8wift and . ghal.
,jow pe) Ho in sbore boat8 in tow of
the steam launches.
According to report"the Chinese
government has done everything in
its power to meet the demands of
the diplomatic body al;- Pekin for
the dispersion of the "Boxers," but
it appears that the uprising is far
more serious than was at first ap
prehended, and even the resident
ministers at Pekingare inclined to
admit that the task is not ah easy
one for the Chinese .government.

it is not contemplated that pur na

A MESSAGE TO MANILA.
Travel Three-Fifth-, tbe Cirouit of
the Globe The Coarse It
To pay practically $25 for a brief ten
word message to the Philippines may
seem extravagant, but when one re
Sects that it travels three-fifths of the
distance around the globe in complet
ing the journey, passing under the di
rection of half a dozen different com
panies, the cost seems far from exorbi
tant, says Ainslee's Magazine. '
' The ordinary, course of such a mes
sage would be from New York to Cape
Breton, N. S., thence to Heart's Con
tent, -N. P., where it dives under the
Atlantic, to reappear on the coast of
Ireland. From here it is forwarded to
London, which is the great center and
clearing house for the cable business
of the whole world. , From London the
message will be forwarded either across
the Knglish channel ad overland to
Marseilles, or by the Eastern Telegraph
company's line around the Spanish pen
insula, stopping at Lisbon. Through
the Mediterranean the route leads to
Alexandria, across Egypt by land, down
the Red sea to Aden, through the Ara
bian sea to Bombay, over India by land,
across the Bay of Bengal to Singapore,
along the "coast to Hong-Kong, and
across the China sea to Manila. Not
withstanding the many hands through
which it passes, the message is for
wardect with reasonable promptness,
with perfect secrecy; and all the way In
English. ' ' "
MAKERS OF WILLS."
Very Troubleaoma to Di
tbe Pap era In Bavaria
Bavaria, seems to have placed the
most effective pitfalls and barbed wire
entanglements in the path of the
guileless maker of wills In that
country it is imperative that the moat
simple will must be attested .with all
solemnity by seven separate witness
es, who must be present at the same
time; and their action must be sanc
tioned and their signatures must be
authenticated by r.: a public notary.
Prussia., has also its special complica
tions, under the code of Frederick' II.
That' monarch,' distrusting "ignorant
notaries, or ministers, or casual per
sons but little learned in matters of
law," decided that only wills, made in
solemn form' before justices or judges
should be valid. To these experts all
particulars must be ; told, , any ' ques
tions they choose to put must be, an-'
swered, and they finally 'draw' up the
document, read it to the testator and
append their signatures. 'If it is pre
ferred the will may be drawn before
hand and submitted to - the" judges,
who,' after due: Inquiries to' satisfy
themselves that all is right, will sanc
tion and confirm it. '
A HIGH PRICED PIANO. ;
One That: Was Made for' a Famous)
Belgian Artist at a Cost "
: of 25,0OO.
A wonderful piano has been made by
Jan Van Beers, . the , Belgian artist,
whose portraits of, beautiful women are .
famous Vhe painter owns one of. the
most remarkable houses 'in Paris and
has-given years to the study of interior
decoration, says the New York Com
mercial Advertiser. He' admits that
the exquisite instrument which he is
going to exhibit at the exposition next
summer is probably the most beauti
ful piano of ancient or modern times.
Of course, only the shell or case is his,
work; whose make the instrument
shall be will be determined by the pur
chaser. The body of the piano is of
natural wood, tinted green; the legs,
garlands, Cupids and all the ornamenta
tions are of bronze, gilded and chiseled
by the ablest sculptor of Louis Quinze
bronzes in Paris. .The fine ... sketches
which appear on the Bides and on the
front of the piano are paintings by the
artist himself and represent the four
seasons, and .a minuet danced in the
park in the da3'fe of Louis XV., all after
the manner of Watteau.1 '
The designer has tried as far as pos
sible to convert those parts of the piano
which are ordinarily ungraceful andv
awkward into something decorative
and harmonious. JThe- pedals, which
generally- represent a. lyre, are replaced . -by
the owner's initials. One bronze
Cupid, iatthe -touch tit a spring; offers
his violoncello as -a support for the cover"
when open. This cover is lined with
small plaques of ivory, each surround
ed by a Louis Quince frame of bronze,
where some day distinguished musi
cians will write their names, using fo
this purpose the sheath aiiasJrrw-f i.
Cupid at the left, which have been in
geniously converted into inkstand and
pen," The music, resting on a small
frame of bronze, which glides forward
upon a spring, is lighted by two delicate
electric flowers, and the musician is
thus left in an agreeable half-light.
The total cost of the piano wiUnot be
less' than $25,000. - : ' ;rj :.
Kes;nlartty of Rising; and Falling; of
tbe Rivers and Streams in
- Alaska. ' -.
To most people who live in the tem
perate zones, the annual freshets oc
casioned by the melting of the winter
snows and by the unusually heavy rains
of spring are a matter of familiar ob
servation. Under a higher latitude and
in the neighborhod of glaciers, other
phenomena are to be studied. An Eng
lish traveler in Alaska has the follow
ing to report about the rivers of that
country, says Youth's Companion:
The Takheena, like most streams of
glacial origin, was subject to a daily
rise and fall. The distance of its
sources caused the water to increase
in volume and in swiftness from noon
to midnight, after which it continued
to decrease from midnight to noon.
The daily rise measured from six to
ten -inches, according to the heat of
the weather; the daily fall measured
from five to eight inches during the
time the fine weather lasted.' '
After a few days of cloudy, rainy
weather, I found the river falling from
day to day. about as fast as it had risen
during the fine weather, :,: . , ; "
It is worthy of remark that during
fine weather ; I invariably found the
wind during the daytime in the Chilcat
valley blowing -up, frtm the sea. It
began in the forenoon with. a. gentle
breeze, which gradually increased
a smart gale, that died quite aw.
sunset. During the night"rthereV'waa
either no wind, or else it blevr'in the
contrary direction.. This regular movei.
ment of the atmosphere no doubt has
much to do with producing the regular
daily rise and fall of the river.

Dr. Isaac Bazrovt jvas an eminent di
vine, great at long, sermons; three
hours were nothing to him. On one oc
casion he was preaching in tbe abbey,
and had got well on in his "tenthly, my;
brethren," without any indication of
the stream's running dry. Now, the
abbey is a showplace as well as a
church; and restive under the elo
quence of Dr. Barrow. Accordingly, as
the veracious chronicler records, they
"caused the organs to play until thejt
had Mowed him down.". Here, again,
you see the organs blew. Whether the
organist was asleep not unlikely, for
organists prefer a sleep to a long ser

but I confess I, should like to have
