Gomez of the American proposition to aive $3, 000,000 to the insurgent soldiers on condition that they disband simpli fies the situation materially in Cuba. This sum, it is calculated, will give about $100 to each member in good standing in the Cuban army, assum ing that the insurgents under arms at the closing days of the war num bered 30,000,000. In reality, how. ever, the amount for each soldier is likely to be greater than $100, for the American officers who had the best chance of learning the actual ex tent ot the insurgent army last sum mer put it at a much lower figure than 30,000. The army may be aug mented somewhat by the prospect of payment, but it is reasonable to pre sume that precautions will be taken by the insurgent officers to keep the money out of the hands of persons not entitled to it. . No persons in the position of the Cuban insurgents were ever treated so 'handsomely , as Gomez's men are by the United S'tates. This govern ment freed the Cubans, and now it ad vances $3,000,000 to the men in her armies. Whether the. money is ever returned to the United States or not the disbursement of it at this juncture is an act of benevolence which will doubtless be highly appre ciated by the people of the island. Each soldier of the insurgent force will thus be supplied with enough money to enable him to resume .his ordinary employment under favor able circumstances, and the work of restoring the shattered iudustrie3 and credit of the islmrl once. This is a consideration Of the highest importance.' It insures the disbandment of the insurgent armies, VJestroyg the dread of brigandage and general disorder which the mainten ance of thousands of men under arms and in a sullen mood involved, and puts the Cuban people in an especial ly friendly attitude toward the United States. This disbursement will create a working fund of money in the island which will be of great utility, start the wheels of industry in opera tion, and prepare the way for a high er degree of prosperity in the near future than Cuba has ever known. The political effect of the disburse ment wil? be as important as its social influence. It will prove to the ske plies and the malcontents that the United States will be able and willing to render as valuable service to the Cubans in peace as it has done in war. It will gain support all over the island for the policy of annexation. By winning over the friendship of Gen. Gomez, who was apparently distrust ful and sullen uitil now, it paves the way to a speedy and satisfactory es tablishment of cordial relations with all elements of the Cuban population. Gomez is likely to be as favorable to the American connection hereafter as Garcia was in his last days. This mark of consideration by the United States frfr the welfare of the Cuban people will be a powerful argument for annexation, and its cost will be very small to the United States. The work of reconstruction in this island will be easy and rapid hereafter. All the embarrassments which the anti annex&tionists predicted and desired will be averted. ' With the insurgent armies placed in an agreeable mood toward this country the task of the Americanization of Cuba will be easy and pleasant. Globe Democrat. La Grippe ia again epidemic.

When this tube -is in flamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it Is en tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed for ever; nioecasjs out of ten are cansed by catarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous sur faces.
