Does it Pav to Buy Cheap?
A cheap remedy for coughs and colds
is all right, but von want something
that will relieve and cure the more
severe and dangerous results of threat
and lung troubles. What shall you do?
io to a warmer and more regular
climate? Yes, if possible; if not possible
for you, then in either case take the
only remedy that has been introduced
in all civilized countries with success in
severe throat and lung ttoubles, "B09
chee's (jeruian Syrup." It not only
heals and stimulates Hie. tissues to des
troy the germ disease, but allays in
flammation, causes easy eipectoration,
gives a good night's rtst, and cures the
patient. Try one bottle, ltecominended
many years by all druggists in the

honk, therefore, received live votes, ex
cept in the selection of a primary his
tory, when II. W. Scott voted independ
ently of the other four. So far as ap
pears, c'linplcte harmony prevailed, all
differences of opinion having been set
tled at private conferences.
After the vote hail been taken '.Presi
dent II. W. Scott stated to the. book
men that the liiemls rs of the hoard had
been studying the merits ol text book"
for about four months, that they had
held a conference, compared notes and
investigated prices-mid that the selec
tions made were the ronlt of that .con
ference. Physiology, civil pivernmeiit, music
and drawing are yet to be passed upon
in the common branches, hut they rep
resent but a small p.n enta.'e of the
text-book business. All the high si ler..!
branches also remain.
(If course ull the aents w ho were sue-ci-.-ful
are nili-licd and jubilant. One
of the heavy oo-er-, when n-ked to
night what he thought of the hoard's
action, said : ''The board is above re.
proacll. Tiny did what they thought
bent for tho school- of (ir.goii. HI
course I don't agree with their judgment
in the matter."
Another iiii-uccc-fnl man, when
asked what hi- thought of the hoard's
holding a preliminary conference over
the selection, .,i;d ; "II was the only
biisini--like way of doing thing
went about it like business men."

THE TROUBLE IN CHINA.
An edict stoned l-y the en peror snd
impress downier of China has been
posteil iii Chtiiiso Tl.i'ti't annoiiiiciuu
that the Kuropciiii have Issui vietorions
in Nol'l In l'n China, und ordennir that
the lives of Missionaries mid Christian
enlivens be respected, on pain of decapi
tation. A dispatch to the I5.rliu Volks Zol
tuna Irom China says that according to
advices received at mission headquar
ters many missionaries have returned
to the interior of Shantung province,
where they were well received by the
Chinese. Tlin missiimnr 01 from every
liKtalitv report their beliuf that the pres-
sunt c.ilm will not lust. The Uerniau
fori Ikii oillce, however, says thutoflioial
resnts ncuivud frulu China seem to
show that no Uew preparations are
Isdng made for further uprisings, and
that upon investigation the various
iilariiiiug reports of approaching tremble

SOUTH AFRICAN WAR.
Ixird Kitchener telegraphs to the war
olllco under datoof Pretoria, July 4, as
follows: "Oronfell, on July 1, at How
ell, captured 03 Boers aud a lot of sup
plies belonging to Beyer's commando."
Tho Imilou Dnily Mull gives seusa
tlonal prominence to mall advices trout
Vliikfuutoin which attribute to the Boers
inhuman atrocities that the oensor
would not allow to be described by cable.
"A couplo of PsMjrs," says the Daily
Mull's correspondent, who were armed
with Martinis walked around among
tho dead and dying. Borne they turned
over to see if they wero dead. If it were
otherwise, then one or the other of the
IliM-rs shot them as yon would shoot an
ox. I suw four killed In this way. One
youngster pleaded for his life. I heard
him say, 'Oh, Christ, don'll' and then, '
bung! went the riflu. That la what
hapM'iicd." The Dully Mail protests
vigorously agulust tho suppression by
the censor of such details.
(rent Britain has refused the request
of this government to release Americans
w ho were m ule prisoner, whilo fighting
with the Boers, mid thuy will have to
endure captivity until the close of the
South African war. Such persons, it is
contended, lose their nationality. The
tutu department at Washlugtou is sat

ill treating their prisoners are without
The IIiubscIs correspondent of the
Boiulou Morning Post suys: "Dr. Lcyds
ha. addressed to the coutiuontul powers
and tho United States a protest against
(ireat Britain's 'barbarou. treatment'
of llis r women and children. It is said
that Holland will support the protest."
Thu report of the governor of the
l.d.md of Si. Helena, dealing with the
year eliding March 81st, says: "The lies
111 the KaroK.aii pasirs about the Boer
pris, nu i'H!'asH, rated cveu the prisouers.
The latter enjoy large liberty and are
well behaved, contented aud anxious to
