GENERAL WOOD'S PROMOTION.
Opposition to HU Advancement Hm
Developed Among Army Officers.
XjJW YORK, Dir. 7. WacusMng the
promotion of General Wood to the rank
cf major gyneoU. the Washing corres
pondent of the Herald says:
Though It has been appurent that
the president has further reward in
store for General Wood, there has b.vn
strong feeling in the army In opposition
to his appointment as & brigadier gen
eral of Ue regular 'rioe, and this
opposition has undoubtedly cau-d the
president to determine to make Gen
eral Wood a tiuijur general of volun
tetrs and place him In command of
the military divisijfi of Cuba.
So opposed are some officers of the
service to Gen. Wood's advancement
that it Is expected a n.ovemetu wlU :
be Inaugurated to prevejit conflrma-
lion of the nouiinUtion by the senate.
It is claimed by these men that the
advano-metit of a captain of the medi-
cal corps to the high rank of major f
general Is calculued tu subwrt dia l- ;
pllne. disturbing exiting meAjd. of j
promotion and is aW to nuUte the;

that rank, and Brigadier General Lud- '

Major General Shafter. whan that of- j
fcer Is retir.d as a major getwal in;
accordance with the reeomrmwilution
of Secretary Root.
The decision of the prtidiit not to
divide Cuba into two departments, as
contemplated at one time, placing
General Ludlow in command of the
wee tern department and General '.
of the eastern department, undoubtedly
is due In part to the publifdvd inter
views with Generai Ludlow, indicating
that that offio-T was opposed to ihe
viev.s cf thetdmLilstration with re
syett to Cuba, and his statements were
calculated. It wts belie-e.l, Vj nv-ike
the inhabitants of tine island di.ads
fied under his adminir.uloi.
General Wond was ali opixJ to
the establishment 'f a civil govern
ment at this time, but he ls very jiopu
lar, not only ln the eemern section of
the Island, but ln the middle and west
ern sections as well, and prominent
Cubans have acquainted the prvwlJer.t
with their hope that he will be ap
pointed their governor.
General Wood will not immediately
take command of the Island. It is un
derstood that "be will return to his pom

cry in the house, and use it whenever f 1
ing "out of sorts.'' It keeps the e:itin
body in such a high condition of healtn
and forcefulness that wasting diseases liave
no chance to get a foot hold. A tcaipuun

It enables the liver and excretory sysicni
to clear the circulation of bilious poison
and remove all waste matter fmrn the body.
It replaces worn out tissue with hard mus
cular flesh, and rhitiges weakness and
debility into active power and nerve force.
The originator of this great " Discovery. "
R. V. Pierce, M. D , is chief consulting
phvsician to the great Invalids' Hotel and
Surgical Institute of Buffalo, N. Y.. at the
head of a staff of nearlv a score of eminent
associate physicians and surgeons. He has
acquired, in his over thirty years of active
practice, a reputation second to no living
physician in tht treatment of obstinate, I
chronic diseases. His prescriptions must
not be confounded with the numerous
"boom" remedies, "extracts," "com
pounds," and "sarsaparillas," which a
profit-seeking druggist is often ready to
urge as a substitute. Dr. Pierce's medi
cines are the product of wide experiencf
and deep study. Anr one may consrti
