Uncle Sam May Not Get tbe Islands
After AH Agitation Against tbe
Sale Foreign Minister at Copen
hagen Will Request Secretary Hay
to Allow Aarrangements for a
Copenhagen, Dec. 23. The agitation
against the sale of the Danish West
Indies has placed the government in an
embarrassing position. There is much
difference of opinion as to how far pub
lic sentiment against the eale is genuire
and how far it is the work of speculators
and promoters. At any rate, it has im
pressed the foreign minister to the ex
tent of his being determined to request
Secretary Hay to allow of an arrange
ment for a plebiscite. The matter will
be settled through Copenhagen, and not
through the Danish minister at Wash
ington It is generally declared in well-informed
circles here that the islanders
favor tbe sale. But the chief argument
advanced by tbe large majority is that
there Bhould be a plebiscite like that of
The fact that the Danish government
is reopening the negotiations indicates
that there is much doubt in the mmdtof
tbe authorities as to bow accurately tbey
have ganged the national sentiment.
In the meanwhile those who'are op
posed to tbe sale are formulating nn
merous plans for realizing on tbe trop
ical asset so long neglected. A com
pany has jnst been formed for improv
ing tbe economic status of tbe islands,
in tbe event that tbey are not sold. Tbe
directors include many influential per

Ihh Two rom Ooath.
"Oar Utile daughter had an almost fa
tal attack of whooping cough and bron-
ebitls," writea Mrs. W. K. Haviland. of
Armonk. N. .. "but, when all other
remedies failed, we saved her life with
Dr. King 'a New Discovery. Our niece,
who had Consumption in an advanced
stage, also need this wonderful medicine
and to-day ahe la perfectly well." Des
perate throat and long diseases yield to
Dr. King's New Discovery as to no other
medicine on earth. Infallible fa Coughs
An impression seems to prevail that
"A Romance of Coon Hollow" is a show
given by colored people. This is a great
error and probably has arisen from the
fact that it is a Southern drama. Tbe
cast is made op entirely of well known
actors and actresses, at the head of
whom is tbe favorite little soubrette
star, Iola Pomeroy. The play is a very
pretty southern heart story, and while
it has intense and exciting incidents it
is not the usual melodrama, but natural
and pastoral in. its treatment. Tbe New
York Herald, when it was originally
produced in tbat city, styled it as a
Tennessee 'Old Homestead' " and
Allan Dale, in the New York World,
wrote of it: "The strength of "Cor n
Hollow" lies in its humanity. It is the
characters tbat make the play ; they are
fleet) and bllood real pulsative beings."
The comedy is given the same beau
tiful production that marked its launch
ing in New York, as all of the splend d
scenery is carried. "A Romance cf
Coon Hollow" will appear at the Vogt
tonight December 30th.
Brain Food Nonaenae.
Another ridiculous food fad lias been
Draodcd by tbe most competent author
ities. Tbey have dispelled the silly no
tion that one kind of food is needed for
brain, another for muscles, and still an
other for bones. A correct diet will not
only nourish a particular part of the
body, hut it will sustain every other
part. Yet, however good your food may
be, its nutriment is deft roved by indi
gestion or dyepeysia. You must pre
