s SON UNSELFISH
Showing in His Request to Withdraw
His Name From the List of Re
wards for Gallantry.
Washington, March 13. By direction
of the president the order haB been is
sued mustering out a large number of
staff officers of the volunteer army. The
officers named will relieve their aides
and order them to join their regiments.
Brigadier General McKibben will pro
ceed to Columbus barracks, Ohio, and
assume command of that post. Other
officers, exclusively of the volunteer
army, will proceed to their homes, while
those of the permanent establishment
will join their regiments.
It should be explained that the re
duction ia the list of general officers
made by today's order is not sufficient
in itself to meet the demands of the
existing law. There must be a further
cut, in fact, the list of major generals
and brigadier generals remaining must
be reduced by ten altogether, in order
to bring the list down to nineteen, per
mitted by the strength of the regular
army. Ia effecting this reduction it is
the intention to reduce some of the
major generals to the rank of brigadier
generals instead of mustering them out
of the service. Also in the case of some
of the brigadier generals yet to be drop
ped, it will doubtless be found that, in
stead of being mustered out of the
United states service entirely, some of
the officers, who hold lower positions in
the regular army, will return to their
former regimental and staff places.
The major generals who retain their
volunteer commissions at "present are
Wade, Shatter, Otis, Wilson, Fitzbugh
Lee, Wheeler, Batte, ' Young, Law ton,
Chaffee, Anderson, Macarthur, and Lud
low. The brigadier generals remaining
are Frank, Williston, Carpenter (L. H-.)
Davis, Kchwan, Hall, Hashrouch, San
ger, Kline, Gilmore, Ernest, Wheaton,
King, Grant, H. G. Otis, Andrews,
Hughes, Colby, Wood, .Ewers, Over
ehine, Beeves and Combs.
it is not contemplated to make any
more changes in the volunteer army
generals and staff officers at present
Under the law the officers mustered ont
today must be retined until the procla
mation of peace is issued, so most of the
discharges take the date of May 12
if the plans of a committee of prominent
citizens here do not fail. An imposing
delegation will wait upon the secretary
of the navy and ask him to authorize the
admiral to accept an. invitation form the J
City of Washington during the festival
to be held here during the latter part of
Secretary Long will refer the request to
the president at Thomasville, and if he
gives it bis approval, Admiral Dewey
will no doubt accept and be here in time.
SOME FACTS REGARDING THE RAPID
INCREASE OF HEART TROUBLE.
Do Not Be Alarmed,; But Look For the
Sampson is Unselfish." .,
Washington. March 13. Secretary
Long has received a letter, from Rear
Admiral Sampson, in which the admir
al, after referring to the allegations that
the list of officers, recommended for pro
motion lor gallantry off Santiago, had
failed of confirmation because it in
cluded his name, asked the secretary to
immediately re-appoint these officers
omitting his own name.
Secretary Long will not accept the
suggestion made by Bear Admiral Samp-
eon in nis letter, ana make recess ap
pointments of officers who had failed of
conformation at the last session of con
grese. lhe matter will be allowed to
remain just as it stands until the next
congress meets, and then aTl of the
nominations will be sent in precisely as
they stood at the end of the last session
Dewey May Come Soon.
Washington, March 14. Admiral
Dewey will be in Washington on May 20,

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.
Beal 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 Pneu-
In another way, also the heart is ef
fected by the form of poor digestion,
which causes gas fermentation from
half digested food. There is a feeling of
oppression and heaviness in the chest
caused by pressure of the distended
stomach on the heart and lunge, inter
erjng with their action ; hence arises j
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 digestion and
to insure the proiipt assimilation of food.
This can be done by the regular use
after meals of some safe, pleasant and
effective digestive preparation, like
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, which may
be found at most drug stores, and which
contain valuable, harmless digestive
elements ir a pleasant, convenient form.
It is safe to say that the regular per
sistent use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
at meal time will cure any form of
stomach trouble except cancer of the

Mr. Jaa. A. Jones, publisher of the

case I used Chamberlain's Cough Bern

cess, only being in bed a little over two
days against ten days for the former at

would have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this emedy as 1
had to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, while in the first
case I was able to attend to business
about two days before getting 'down.' "
