NEW name, that of Gomez, may lie added to the list of brave Spanlsh-Amerienns who have liberated their country
from the Spanish yoke. Ills name will be well worthy of a place beside tlnise of Bolivar. O’Higgins, Sucre, Hidal-

unsuccessful at the tieginning, but suddenly all South America broke out in one blaze of revolution that was not to be
finally extinguished until Spain had been driven from the continent.
The natives welcomed the chance to secure their freedom. When once the torch of liberty had been lighted so great
n fire was kind.ed that it could not be extinguished. These revolutions were popular uprisings. The rich had no sympathy
with them. The land-owning and governing elutes, the army and navy, the few who profited by the sufferings of the many,
bail no sympathy with the uprisings. The insurgents were an undisciplined rabble, whose volunteer leaders were forced
to create an army from poor material and with no arms or equipments. At first they were organized in scattered bands
that attacked the fortifications'of the Spanish army. Little by little they were welded into a compact army by the genius
of their leaders.
These leaders revealed great ability, and to the people of South America their names are as dear as is that of Wash
ington to us of North America. Some of them distiugulslted themselves so great'.y as to make their fame world-wide.
Such was O'Higgins in Chili, Bolivar in Venezuela and Central America, Sucre In Bolivia and Peru. Hidalgo in Mexico and
San Martin in Argentina. They sacrifice«] much for the cause. Several were men of large private fortunes who gave all
that they possessed as a sacrifice on the altar of liberty. Born rich, O'Higgins, Bolivar and Sucre diet) jxsir. They risked
their lives as well ns their money, and thousand« of other men. now forgotten, died that their country might lie free. Their
republics were just ns ungrateful as all republics are traditionally. Hidalgo was killed by the Spanish. The other great
tnen had a worse fate, being traduced and vilified by their compatriots who, at first profusely grateful, afterward yielded
to the jealousy of rival leaders. It was not until after their death that their compatriots appreciated their greatness. l*roo-
ably the same fate is in store for Gomez.

all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
