Food is the body-restorer.
In health, you want nothing
but food; and your baby wants
nothing but food. But, when
not quite well, you want to get
back to where food is enough.
One of the most delicate
foods, in the world, is Scott's
emulsion of cod-liver oil.
When usual food is a burden,
it feeds you enough to restore
your stomach; baby the same.
The body-builder is food;
the body-restorer is Scott's
emulsion of cod-liver oil.

traditional Bowbreness of the Lenten
season has not been sufficient to mar
the brilliancy of the numerous social
event. Feminine organiialiona re
calling the history of three centuries
have graced tbe hall and saloons of the
city and receptions to the Daughter of
the American Revolution, the Children
of the American Revolution, the
Woman's Relief Corps, the National
Council of Woman, the Woman Suffra
gist and finally the Amoekeag Veteran
of New Hainpshiie have keen tbe order of
the day. The latter is not, of course,
a feminine organixalion but a large
delegation of ladies accompanied th
d8oendent of the revolutionary wars
riors and the reception given them was
one of the most enjoyable of the week.
The dramatic performance and the
lecture ou Kin Lear, both for the
benefit of charitable institutions, came
off with great eclat and a consideiable
sum of money was raised tor the worthy
puriosei for which the affair were given.
One of the minor affair of tbe week
was the appearance before the judiciary
committee of the house of a delegation
headed by Mr Carrie Chapman Catt
and ber able conaooura of the Wouiau's
Suffrage convention. They presented
strong argument fur female suffrage
aud drew roseate picture of the purill
cation of political tn.-tuoda which would
follow the enfranchisement of them'
elves aud their sisters. On the follow
iug dv the Woman' Relief .Corp
attempted to elect a local president and
was obliged to take (our ballots the first
three thrown out because the number
ol vote exceeded the number of dele
gate. Some of tbe ungallant members
of the judiciary committee were iudulg
ing in many jokes at the good ladies'
expense yesterday and pointed to the
ballot box stuffing as I lie inevitable
result of female suffrage.
Saturday was celebrated as a holiday
in Washington by everyone but the in
ueiaugauie senators who held a session
to discuss the Philippine revenue bill
which will come to a vole at four o'clock
today and is now being debated under
the fifteen minute rule.
Some sensational sessions o! the
senate have been held during thi bill.
S.uator Palteison, although protesting
that he was not a Catholic, declared
that were the Filipinos Protest nt
Christiana, the American people never
would have submitted to th treatment
accotded to those islands. He further
declared that Ciovurnor Taft't state
ment were unreliable, biased and
slanderous to the Filipino character. Iu
an able speech Senator Spooner de
fended the governor aud denounced the
statement of Senator Patterson, The
speech of the senator of Wisconsin was
a brilliant effort and will be classed as
one of the finest argumonts this con
gress has thus far hoard. As soju as
the vote on the measure is taken this
alternoon, the senate will receive Prince
Henry aud tbe individual senators will
be presented to him. Among the
earlier events in the week was the pas

The bouse of representatives has been
occupied with the Indian affairs bill
which passed on Friday. There was a
large amount of routine business con
nected' with the bill which made its
passage a laborious and tedious affair,
During it consideration the proceedings
of the bouse were sadly lacking in
brilliancy. The real interest in the
bouse during the past week, however,
has not been centered in the procedure
ou the fl'jor of the chamber but in the
private room ol the ways and means
committee where the republican mem
ber have been wrestling with the ques
tion of reciprocity with Cuba. As the
result of a conference with the president
Mr. Payne, the chairman, has been won
over to the side of Cuba and even

When I spoke to him on the subject
some lime ago, "Preposterous, prepos
terous," was all I could get him to say,
but when I asked him of the prospects
on Friday be said, "1 cannot talk. We
will have to do something, I suppose,
but I do not feel in a position to say
anything further on the subject." Mr.
Tawney, the republican "whip," whom
I saw after the conference on Friday,
said, "I have not weakened at all, 1
adhere to uiy original position that 1
will vole lor nothing that will in any
way injure an American industry and
that's all there is to it." Mr. Long, of
Kansas, brought consternation to the
opponents of concessions to Cuba by
declaring ia favor of a 40 per cent
reciprocal reduction. In stating his
reasons he declared that the sugar beet
production was not a natural industry

employment to women and childrto and
cheap labor generally, but was "too

the hope that thi will settle the matter.

remarked Mr, Slocem, "for exposition

extracts from his biography written
by our National President Lillian M
N. Stevons. The lives of such men tbow

Neal Dow was born in Portland,
Maine, March 20, 1H04. When ho was
sixtsen years of age be Bnlshta Ills
education 10 lar as school or college
was concerned, having taken a course
at the Friendt Academy, New Bed
ford, and the Portland Academy, lie
desired to go to college but hit parents
were opposed ; neither was he allowed
to study law, as he wished.
During his connection, In tarly man
hood, with the volunteer fire company
of Portland, bit influence wat constantly
txerted to miike sentiment for the ex
clusion of liquort from the tngine house
and to prevent their use on publi
occasions. In tins endeavor ha was
successful In a remarkable degree.
Then, as In his later lilt, he was biave
and ready-wilted.
At one of the banquets, In those days

Sevn J oeo ScaJe,
Th Ban Jot scale increased rapidly
in tbe vicinity of Vancouver, Wash.,
last rear and almost every Iruit grower
finds It necessary to spray bis trees for
this pest. It Is tbe impression of a good
many of tnt Northwestern fruit grower
that it I no longer necessary to spray
against ths Han lose scale in Calilornia,
owing to the prevalence of parasites.
It is doubtless true that the scale is now
kept in check to a great extent io that
state and to some extent in Oregon by
parasites, but it appears to be necessary
even yet to fight the San Jose scale
extensively by spraying in California.
