unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal

tinned to use it, and now am well and

How to Prevent Fneamonia.
You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe, - During the
epidemic of La Grippe a few years ago
when so many cases resulted in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
was never followed by that disease when
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was used.
It counteracts any tendency of a cold or
La Grippe to result in that dangerous
disease. It is the best remedy in the
world for bad colds and La Grippe.

CURES A PORT
News That the American Joint High
Commission Has Agreed to Cede
Seattle, Feb. 8. A report from
Washington that the subcommittee of
the American members of the joint high
commission would concede a port on
Lynn canal, Alaska, to Canada in return
for fishing concessions on the Eastern
coast, aroused considerable resentment.
"The American members of the joint
high commission have about made up
their minda to cede a port to Canada on
the Lynn canal," said E. O. Graves,
president of the chamber of commerce
"There can be no doubt of it," be
added. "I bad a. telegram last night
from Congressman - W. L. Jones, of
Yakima, that this course would be
adopted, and today several telegrams
have been received that corroborate the
information beyond any question.
"During the day a number of the
leading business men, in addition to the
chamber, have been using every effort
to counteract the determination that
has been arrived at, and quite a number
of telegrams have been sent to Pacific
coast senators and representatives, to
tho American members of the commis
sion, Governor Brady, and in short,
every one calculated to lend an influence
against the ceding of any territory on
Other leading business men voiced the
sentiments expressed by Mr. Graves
and said, in strong terms, that such a
proposition to cede American territory
would work serions barm to the com
merce of the Pacific coast.
