While the public mind is yet charg
ed with the question of fire in place
of popular assembly, it may not be
amiss to call attention to the fact that
there are a number of buildings in this
city given over to public use, which
arc totally without any tort of ex
traneout fire-escape. It it a grave
oversight and ahould be remedied within
the hour. Xotabfci among these om in

Most popular and mot frequently

from that single rear stairway, the re

The Department of Agriculture has

Washington has combined five city
streets in one, to 1 known as Wheeler

Lord Roberts, has renewed his warn
in to Grt Britain that she need a
far larger army if she is to be prepared
for all emergencies in r.urope ana in
India. He place the limit at 1,000.000
men, which suggests that ponsibly in

ployed bv taking such a are suitable
into the military service. The burden
to the nation probably would be no
greater, while a menace would then lie
converted into a security.

writes: "The giip left Hie- iu a tery
weakened condition, no appetite, thin,
nervous, no vitality uud a bad cough.
I hail hemorrhage, nnd nothing seemed
to help me. I rend of what your cod
liver oil preparation, Vinol, had done for
other and decided to try it. I found
that it soon gave me a hearty appetite;
my cough disappeared: my healthy and
strength returned until I felt like a new
creature. I consider Vinol a wonder! ill
medicine it makes strength and
vitality so fast."
flnr local drugist, Mr. Charles Rogers,
says, "We have never sold in our store
a more valuable strength cnntor and
health restorer for the convalescent
than Vinol. This i because Vinol con
tains in a concentrated form all of the
vital principle of cod liver oil, but
without a drop of oil to upset the stom
ach and retard its work.
"Vinol tone up the digestive organs
and renew the strength of every organ
of the body.
"We ask every person In Astoria
who has been ill to try Vinol on our
guarantee to build them up and make
them well and strong. We return
money if it fails." Charles Roger,
