Why do we hear so much about dyspep
sia? Simply because so many people
have it. Why are so many people talking
about their cure from this dreadful dis
ease? Simply beeause they have been
taking Brown's Iron Bitters. Thus it is
with Mrs. Taylor of Lynchburg, Sumter
Co., S. C, who says, VI have used
Brown's Iron Bitters for dyspepsia with
most favorable results. I believe this
medicine is all that is represented." Dy
speptics, and sufferers from neuralgia,

Natural Phenomena In the Penlnsn
- lar State Explained.
Jacksonville Fla.1 Times-Union.
The Apalachicoia Tribune explains the
great smoke which has been puzzling
observers for years, and which could be
seen on any cloudless dav ascendincr
from the vicinity of Ancilla river, in
Florida. Various efforts have been
made to discover the supposed volcano.
while, on the other hand, some have
concluded that the smoke came from the
camp-fires of some remnant of the Semi
nole Indians. The Times-Democrat ex
pedition threw no light upon he mys
tery, the tall grass, boss and dense un
dergrowth impeding the progress of the
One Capt. Asher is the hero who ar
rived in Apalachicoia, with the follow
ing information, which puts out the
Honda volcano, and the romance is lost
of the poor Seminole lingering in the
land of his fathers. At the same time
it adds to the attractions of the lovely
land of fruits, flowers, and wonders.
Perhaps from the sulphuric pools came
the healing virtues which laid the foun
dation for the legend that in Florida
flowed the waters of eternal youth.
Capt. Asher was in search of palmetto
logs on the Ancilla river when he de
scried the smoke or cloud from a point
in the distance. Remembering the
many reports he had heard about
this smoke, he determined to un
earth this mystery, if possi
ble. So, calling his crew to
gether, and picking up their, traps, the
Earty pursued their way in , the small
oats up the Ancilla river. They trav
eled up the river, or creek, for it hardly
deserves the name of river, for miles.
After ascending from its mouth twenty
five or thirty miles, he judges, he was
brought to an abrupt halt by a rock bar
rier in front Upon investigating he
found that the river ended and was lost
underneath the ground. Seeing that
the smoke became more distinct at this
point, and seemed straight ahead, he had
.the boat hauled np to, the bank and
sprang ashore, determined, if possible,
to pursue his investigations on foot. As
he sprang on shore he gave an exclama
tion of surprise, scattered at various
points were huse roicks. towerinar many
feot above his head a thing unheard rtf
m Honda.
Mr. Asher describes some of the rocks
as being as large as an ordinary dwell
ing and apparently hollow, containing
much water, lie describes them as
being of a flinty appearance, and when
struck .with an iron or steel instrument
to emit thousands of sparks. A mile or
two further on wee seen numerous
rocks that were formed into round
basins, their sides being smooth and
beautifully polished. Mr. Asher sprang
upon the top of one of these basins. As
his foot came in contact with the flinty
substanca a hollow sound was
emitted from the rock. Calling
for a pole, and it bemg handed to him,
he placed it in the center of the basin.
What was his surprise on drawing the
pole to the top may be easily imagined
when h discovered that the rock, being
hollow, was filled with a stror sul
phuric water. Pursuing their way
through the bog, sometimes up to their
knees, again on hard ground tor some
distance, then again scratched and
bruised by the underbrush, and fighting
musquitoes that seemed to resent this
intrusion of their dominion, the little
party had a hard time of it. Presently
they came to where the river issued from
its underground covert and pursued its
way onward, to again disappear in the
bowel3 of the earth.
Mr. Asher states that every few hun
dred yards those pools would make their
appearance, and from them would issue
white, misty clouds that would ascend
heavenward, seeming in the distance
to be clouds of smoke. He stated that
the water in these pools was as clear ae
crystal and filled with beautiful nsh,
both fresh and salt. He caught a great
many of the flsh, and attempte to drink
some of the water, but It was unpalata
ble nauseating to the smell and taste.
He spent several days wandering around
these points, and he says he
never before thought there was 6uch
place in Florida. He discovered several
rocks that he presumed would have
answered very well for houses, being
quite as large, hollow, and the walls as
smooth as glass. He appeared to think
it very strange that these monster rocks
should be found in sueh a low, flat,
marshy section. He says that the
rock3 are separated by a distance of 200
feet, and rear .their black, grimy heads
to heaven from a level plain of marshy
soil. There are no indications of there
having been a hill, much less a volcano;
in this section, and the smoke or cloud
seen so often is simply the vapor rising
from the sulphuric pools.
Lunatic In China.
. Chicago Tribune.
Expert testimony in lunacy does not
seem to be regarded with respect in
China. The Pekin Gazette relates that
a lunatic in that city, who, in a
paroxysm of madness, murdered his
grandmother with a vegetable-knife,
was summarily executed in the dis
agreeble manner known as the "slicing"
frocess. The imperial warrant says
hat parricides and matricides "must be
sliced," and contains no saving clause
concerning the insanity of the prisoner.
The remarkable results which have at
tended the administration of the Vital
izing Treatment of Drs. Starkey & Palen,
1109 Glrard St., Philadelphia, for chronic
and so-called "incurable diseases," are
without a parallel in viedical history.
As dispensers of this new Treatment,
they have, after thirteen years of earnest,
untiring and costly effort to introduce it
to those who need its vitalizing and
health-restoring influences, succeeded in
resting its claims on the basis of facts and
results of so wide and universal a charac
ter: facts and results on record, and
open to the closest investigations that
no room for a question remains as to its
marvelous action in restoring the dis
eased to healtlu If you are a sufferer from
any disease which your physician has
failed to arrest or cure, write to Drs.
Starkey & Palen, and they will send you
documents and reports of " cases from
which you will be able to decide for your
self as to your chances for relief under
their new Treatment.

The degraded, half-fed farmers of
France keep the treasury of the Repub
lic always full ! money. The farmer
loves the Republic as much as the Paris
ian detests it. The Republic receives in
its savings banks the money of the poor
tip to one thousand francs, and gives
them three and one-half per cent. ' for
its use. The peasant farmers have
nearly eight hundred million dollars on
deposit in these banks.

Probable Effect of the Chance on Of-

of the in-coming administration."

"The all-Important Question among the
clerks of the various departments, is who !
isto,go In my opinion there win be very
few changes among the old-time em
ployes who have been here year in and
year-out through several administrations.
The removals will occur among the heads
of departments." . '
" sense of distrust which must nec
essarily pervade the departments is, I
suppose, detrimental to the proper trail-
saction of business?" I
"Well, rather. I reckon. It unfits the
clerks for business. Some get very blue,
for they have purchased little nomes
which they must sacrifice." i

don't think Washington is so very ma
larious. At the same time I admit that
since residing here, I have not always felt
first-rate. At times I have been greatly
troubled with sharp-shooting pains. One
day my right arm and leg would torture
me with pain, there would bo great red
ness, heat and swelling of the parts, and
pernaps the next day ike left arm and leg
would be similarly affected, j Then again
it would locate in seme particular part of
my body and produce a tenderness which

would be weeks at a time that I would be
afflicted with an intermitting kind of
pain that would come on every afternoon
and leave me comparatively free from suf

four hours."
"Of course you consulted the doctors
regarding your difficulty?"
"Consulted them? Well. I should say I
did. Some told me I had neuralgia;
others that I had inflammatory rheuma

"Hut didn t they try to relieve your
miseries?" I .
"Yes. they vomited and physicedme,
blistered and bled me, plastered and
oiled me, sweat, steamed and everything
but froze me, but without avail."
"But how did yeu finally recover?"
"I had a friend living in Michigan who
had been afflicted in a similar "Way and
had been cured. He wrote me regarding
his recovery and advised me to try the
remedy which cured him. I procured a
bottle and commenced its use, taking a
tablespoonful after each meal and at bed
