Official ADMIRAL SAMP 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 Mav. 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. HEART DISEASE. SOME FACTS REGARDING THE RAPID INCREASE OF HEART TROUBLE. Do Not Be Alarmed,; But Look For the Cause. 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.

Rebel Avenue of Communication North and South Is Now Closed by a Cordon of American Troops. 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- mogastric. " 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 stomach. Full sized package of these tablets sold by droegists at 50 cents. Little book on stomach troubles mailed free, Address F. A. Stuart, Co.,' Marshall, Mich. . V The Population Growing.

A. Jones, publisher of the Leader, Mexia, Texas. "In the latter case I used Chamberlain's Cough Bern edy, and I think with considerable suc cess, only being in bed a little over two days against ten days for the former at tack. The second attack am satisfied 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.'
