Not Officially Informed.
Washington, March 9. Regarding
the Vancouver story to the eTect that
Dewey is in ill health, Secretary .Long
eays he has no official information on
the subject. Reports are all traceable to
private reports, and though the officers
of the navy who have returned recently
from Manila state that Dewey's health,
so far as it could be gauged from appear
ance, was about the same as it had been
for the past year, they agree that the
private reports probably have a fair
basis of fact. The admiral, however,
recently stated that he thought it his
duty to- remain at Manila, and finish
the work be began in the Philippines.
Dewey has the president's permission
to return to the United States at any
time he deems such a course necessary.

SOME FACTS REGARDING THE RAPID
INCREASE OF HEART TROUBLE.

Her Drink Poison.
Heart troubles, at least among the
Americans, are certainly increasing, and
while this may be largely due to the ex
citement and worry of American busi
ness life, it is more often the result of
weak stomachs, of poor digestion.
Real organic disease is incurable; but
not one case in a hundred of heart
trouble is organic.
The close relation between heart
trouble and poor digestion is because
both organs are controlled by the same
great nerves, the- Sympathetic and
In another way, also the heart is ef
fected by the form of poor digestion,
which causes gas and fermentation from
half digested food. There is a feeling of
oppression and heaviness in the chest
caused by pressure of the dietended
stomach on the heart and lungs, inter
fering with their action ; hence arises
palpitation and short breath.
Poor digestion also poisons the blood,
making it thin and watery, which irri
tates and weakens the heart.
The most sensible treatment for heart
trouble is to improve the diegestion and
to insure the prompt assimilation of
food. ' '

patrol organized. 'A subcommittee of

Tho famous Hitler Dili.
Tacoma, March 8. Two unknown men
entered the house of J. B. W. Johnston,
in the heart of the residence portion of
the city, in broad daylight, today, while
the family was away, and attacked
Myrtle Fulmer, a 15-year-old adopted
daughter.' They said they wanted to get
the money they understood to be in the
house, and commanded the girl to -produce
it. She refused, and they ap
proached her. She struck one in the eye
with a stick of wood and knocked a false
mustache from the lip of another. The
ruffians then put a revolver to her head
and made ber go about the house with
them while they collected the jewelry
which had been left in the drawers. The
girl was so frightened she gave them $3
of her own money. ' This they pnt in a
purse, and then turned upon the young
girl. They attempted to make her drink
a cup of carbolic acid, but she knocked it
trom their hands. They then chloro
formed her, tied a towel about her mouth
and fled. They tailed to take the puree
of valuables, leaving it behind the door.
The girl did not come to until two
hours after sha was chloroformed. She
is uninjured. f
How to Prevent Pneumonia.
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 eo 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 colas and La Grippe.

Londox, March 9. In the house of
commons today the parliamentary sec
retary for foreign affairs, Sir John
Broderick, said her majesty's govern
ment had not modified its undertaking
to support China against any power com
mitting aggression in China because the
latter had granted British subjects per
mission to make or support railroads or
publicworks. But he added the govern
ment did not anticipate that a question
of this description -would arise with re
spect to the British contract for Che
northern . railroads.
' The questions and answer arose from
the Russian protest against the British
railroad contract and the statement of
the British . minister at Peking, Sir
Claude McDonald, that any attempt to
repudiate the contract will be regarded
as a breach of faith meriting retributive
measures. He at the same time recalled
Lord Salisbury's assurance of support for
China if another power attempted to
force ber to repudiate the contract.
