PEACE HAS NOW
The Treaty Was SiiKd at Paris on Last
WORK IS ENDED
Preliminary Arrangements Looking to
a Restoration of Displomatic Re
lations With Spain Under Way at
Paris. Dec. 10. Peadi has been re
stored between the United States and
Spain. The treat y'wag signed at 8:45
in the evening.
The joint commission met at 3:30 V
m., bat the engrossing of the treaty had
not been finished, and at 5 o'clock a re
cess was taken until 7 p. m. Upon the
reassembling of thccouimisaion, another
wait ensued. At 8:30 the engrossing
of the treaty had been completed, and
fifteen minutes later the treaty was
The extremely long session this af
ternoon and the subsequent recess were
due only to the fact that each articlo of
the treaty had to be carefully read and
compared in the Spanish and English,
and to the fact that the engrossing of
the last article in Spanish was incom
plete. It 13 expected that the session
which has just reconvened will only last
a few moments.
Many officials interestedly watched
every detail of th6 proceedings. The
last seal being imprescei, the commis
sioners rose, and without formality each
member shook the hands of all his antag
onists and exchanged 8surance9 of sin
cere personal esteem.
The Spaniards afterward commented
acridly upon what they termed the bad
taste of the Americans in mustering a
crowd of attaches to gloat over the con
summation of their downfall and scram
ble for relics.
The Bigning was finished at 8:45. At
that time the door of the vchamber
opened, and Senor Villaurotia appeared,
and exclaimed to a a group of correspon
dents who were waiting in the corridor,
"C'est Fini." The other members of
the Spanish commission follewed him
and passed silent through the vestibule
to their waiting carriages.
The American commission strolled
out chatting complacently, and as they
descended the steps the lights in the
chamber were darkened.
Diplomatic Relations to Be Restored.
Washington, Dec. 19. In view of the
approachinz signature of the peace treaty
the government will be obliged to very
speedily take steps looking to the res
toration of the diplomatic machinery
necessary to friendly relations with the
Tbe recent visit to tbe White House
of Woodford, late minister to Madrid,
has been erroneously constructed to
indicate a determination on tbe . part
of the president to return tbe minieter
to Madrid. As a 'matter of fact this is
improbable, as the whole line of diplo
matic precedent is in the direction of
wiping oat all old issues and starting
anew after a war, with new ministers on
both sides. The reappointment of
Woodford might mean the return to
Washington of Polo y Bernabe, whose
residence in Canada during the war
rendered him so obnoxious to the Amer
If custom is followed, either the next
United States minister to Madrid or next
Spanish minister to Washington will be
accredited with credentials as special
envoy to exchange the ratification of the
treaty now being completed at Paris.
Having fulfilled this function he will
then present his credentials as minister
resident, and remain in that capacity.
Just which of tbe ministers, will be called
upon to perform this function depends
upon tbe place selected by the Paris
commissioners for exchange of the final
GENERATED IX THE HUMAN BODY
The Result of Imperfect Digestion of
Every living thing, plant or animal,
contains within itself the germs of cer
tain decay and death.
In the human body these eerms of
disease and death (called by scientists
Ptomaines), are usually the result of im
perfect digestion of food; tbe result of
indigestion or dyspepsia.
The stomach, from abuse,, weakness.
does not promptly and thoroughly digest
the food. Tbe result is a heavy, sodden
mass which ferments (the first procees
of decay) poisoning tbe blood, making it
thin, weak and lacking in redcorpusclea :
poisoning tbe brain causing headaches
and pain in the eyes.
Bad indigestion irritates the heart,
causing palpitation pnd finally bringing
on disease of this very important organ.
Poor digestion poisons the ' kidneys,
causing Bright' 8 disease and diabetes.
And this ia so because every organ,
every nerve depends upon the stomach
alone for nourishment and renewal, and
week digestion shows itself not only in
loss of appetite and flesh, but in weak
nerves and muddy complexion.
The great English scientist, Huxley,
said the best start in life ia a sound
stomach. Weak stomachs fail to di
gest food properly, because they lack the
proper quantity of digestive acida (lactic
and hydrochloric) and peptogonic 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
pleasant, harmless form all the elements
that weak stomachs lack.
The regular use of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets will cure every form of stomach
troubles except cancer oithe stomach.
They increase flesh, insure pure blood
and strong nerves, a bright eye and
clear complexion, because all these re
sult only from a wholesome food well
Nearly all druggitti sell Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets ac 50 cents full sized
package or by mail by enclosing price to

your druggist first.

Cave-in in Wardner Mine. .
Wallace, Idaho. Dec. 10. A cave-in
in the Banker Hill and Sullivan mine at
Wardner today caught several men.
Only meager details have been received
here. Two men are known to be dead,
and probably three. One of the victims
was John Lux ton, .who leaves a wife
and three children.
Two Pointed Questions Answered.
What is the use of making a better
article than your competitor if yon can
not get a better price for it?
Ane. As there is no difference in the
price the public will buy only the better,
so that while our profits may be smaller
on a single ecale they will be "much
greater in the aggregate.
How can yon get the public to know
your make ia the best?
If both articles are brought prominent-
pry before the public both are certain to
be tried and the public will very quickly
pass judgment on them and nee only the
better one. ,
This explains the large eale on Cham
berlain's Cough remedv. Tbe people
have been using it for years and have
found that it can always be depended
upon. They may occasionally take up
with aome fashionable novelty put forth
with exaggerated claims, but are certain
to return to the one remedy that they
know to be reliable, and for coughs,
colda and croup there is nothing equal
to Chamberlain'a Cough Remedy. For

' , ment to Cuba.
Savannah, Dec. 10. Colonel rfW. J.

mander be made acquainted with hia

Severe Wind Storm.
San Francisco, Dec. 9. The storm
which raged all over the Pacific coast
last night and today was one' of the most
severe ever recorded by the .weather
bureau. It extended from the northern
border down to Texas and from the Pa
cific as far east as Nebraska. In this
city the wind attained a velocity of 45
miles an hour, but at Point Keyes, right
in the teeth of tbe gale, the wind swept
along at 96 miles an hour. Considering
the great velocity of the wind, the
damage done to shipping was slight,
and $10,000 will pay for everything, in
cluding the charges of towboat men for
extricating vessels from dangerous po
sitions. Enterprising Druggists.
