WASHINGTON March a. The pro

American customs collectors- In Santo

Dominican Diplomat Denies He Even
Saw President Morales.
NEW YORK. March 21,-An official
Version of the alleged negotiations be
tween A. B. Reader and the .Dominican
government was' given today by Emlllo C.
Jubert, the Dominican Charge d'Affalres
at Washington, who is "in this city. He
said: '
"I -was in President Morale's office when
Reader sent in his letter asking for an
interview and pretended to be an agent
of the United States. The President had
"word sent to Reader that he could not
grant an interview until he was present
ed by Minister Dawson, and told him. if
he had any business, to communicate It
either through the Dominican Legation
at Washington or the Minister of Foreign
Affairs. Later, Reader sent a bundle of
papers to Foreign Minister Sanchez,
which was returned without notice being'
taken of it. It Js absurd to say that
there were any negotialons with Reader."
"It Is up to Assistant Secretary of
State Loomis to vindicate me with tbe
Government on behalf of the republic of
Santo Domingo," said Mrs. Ella Reader
today. "He can substantiate my story in
every particular, and in the -absence of
Secretary Hay he will be required to do.
ed. The Santo Domingo negotiations by
which I was to be made fiscal agent of
the republic were in the hands of Mr.
Loomis. He, hlmeelf .went to Santo Do
mingo some time ago in connection with
them, and If he will break silence the
truth of every assertion I have made' will
be .fully proven."

The day Frederic
Remington began his
career as Painter and
Historian of the West
" I was nineteen years of age and
he was a very old man. Over the
pipeS he developed that he was
bom in western New York and
had gone West at an early age.
His West was Iowa. Thence
during his long life he had fol
lowed the receding frontiers,
always further and further west.
And now,' said he, there is
no more West.
" There he was, my friend of the
open, sleeping in a blanket on
the ground (it snowed that night),
eating his own villanies out of
his frying-pan, wearing a cotton
shirt open at the throat, and -hunting
his horses through the
bleak hills before daylight;, and
all for enough money to mend
harness and buy wagon grease.
He had his point of view and he
made a new one for me."

When your head aches, there
is a storm in the nervous sys
tem, centering in he brain.
This irritation produces pain
in the head, and the turbulent
nerve current sent to the stom
ach causes nausea, vomiting.
This is sick headache, and
is dangerous, as frequent and
prolonged attacks weaken the
brain, resulting t in loss of
memory, inflammation, epi
lepsy, fits, dizziness, etc.
Allay this stormy, irritated,
aching condition by taking
Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills.
They stop the pain by sooth
ing, strengthening and reliev
ing the tension upon the nerves
not by paralyzing thenij, as
do most headache remedies.
Dr. Miles' Anti-Pairf'Pills do
not contain opium, morphiner
chloral,cocaine or similar drugs.
"Sick headache Is hereditary in my
family. My father suffered a great
deal, and for many years I have had
spells that were so severe that I was
unable to attend to my business affairs
for a day or so at a time. Burins a
very severe attack of headache, I took
Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills and they
relieved me almost Immediately. Sines
then I take them -when. I feel the spell
cominfr on and it stops it at once.
