A GKKMAN dentist. Dr. Ilerz, pro poses to put microbes in our mouths to steal away our pains. His discovery consists in an inoculant prepared from microbes he cultivates for the purpose. When applied in the case of a decayed tooth it stops the pain, but does not destroy the nerve; further, it again fixes the tooth and makes it possible to putin a lasting stopping.

The appearance, odor, taste and effect on the system arc all reproduced, it is claimed, and the sham can only be told by a microscopical examination. The one essential difference between the leaf tobacco and the substitute is the absence of nicotine in the latter. The cost of producing the substitute is said to be small, and a promise of the best perfectos of to-day at a price within the reach of all is made.

Spaniards Propose to Settle the Philippine Question. Tliey Assert that u Ilri ltliin by a Third Party I* Necrsiiary to a Satisfac tory Adjustment of tile Nc- CutlatloiiM INotv 111 Prog ress at I'urls. Paris, Nov. 17.—At the meeting yes terday of the Spanish-American com missions the Spanish commissioners presented a loug document in answer totne American argument which was submitted last week. By mutual con sent the memorandum was handed to the Americans and the meeting ad journed until Saturday. The Spaniards in their communica tion reaffirmed the position which they have assumed against the discussion here of Spain's Philippine sovereignty. They insist that the words "shall de termine the control, disposition and government of the Philippines," in Article 3 of the peace protocol, do not warrant any reference to Spain's with drawal from the Philippines except on her own terms, and therefore the Spaniards propose arbitration on the construction to be placed on the words "the control, disposition and govern ment." In signifying their willingness to submit the Philippine article of the protocol to a third party for construc tion the Spanish commissioners urged that as there is a difference of opinion regarding the phrase "the control, di» position and government of the Philip pines," possibly the result of a misun derstanding, the Spaniards should no more be asked to surrender their view than the Americansto surrender theirs. The memorandum points out that a deadlock exists, which might be bro ken by arbitration on the contending views, to which the Spanish commis sioners are quite ready to submit. The later declare that thej have no idea of suggesting arbitration as to the main issue, which touehes the national honor of both sides, but they are willing to accept exterior aid to clear the path of negotiation. It is safe to say that the American commissioners will not consent to in voke exterior aid to construe the terms of their own protocol. Another part of the Spanish memor andum flatly asserts upon the authori ty of M. Cambon's report of the pro tocol negotiations between Washing ton and Madrid through him, that President McKinlcy at no time ob jected to Spain's reservation of her sovereignty in the Philippines. This allegation is directly opposed to the American record on the subject. Moreover, the Spanish commission ers allege that President Mclvinley's objection to Spain's phraseology in ac cepting the terms of peace was based solely, so far as was made known, upon this sentence in the Spanish accept ance: "They accept the proffered terms subject to the approval of the eortes of the kingdom, as required by their constitutional duties." The Spanish memorandum holds that M. Cambon answered the American ob jection to this by pointing out that the Americans' terms were proffered sub ject to the approval of« the Americans, but that President McKinlcy replied that he did not desire to involve the internal affairs of Spain in the pro ceedings in hand. The Spanish memorandum also asks ' why, if the United States objected to Spain's reservation of sovereignty, they did not plainly say so in the protocol and leave no room for argument. AN EDICT FROM SHAFTER. It Provided that the Hospital l <|ul|>- mesit ol Hi* A rui) Should be Lett al Tampa. Washington, Nov. 17. Col. J. W. Jacobs, who was chief quartermaster of the Fifth corps at Tampa and in Cuba,testified yesterday before the war investigating commission that Gen. Humphrey had been in charge of the embarkation of troops at Tampa, and that no order specifying what vessels the different commands were to occupy had been issued. In reply to a ques tion from Gov. Beaver he said the em barkation had been a hap hazard af fair—"decidedly so." (■en. McCook asked if there were any reasons why the cooking utensils and amp equippage of the troops should lot have been forwarded from Dai quiri to the troops in the field. "There was no reason," Col. Jacobs replied, "except that Gen. Shatter's' order forbade." Continuing he said the order was most positive. It did not specify what should not be forwarded, but was spe oific in providing that only forage and rations should be forwarded. Dr. Connor asked whether orders hail been given to leave ;Ui the hospital equipments behind at Tampa and Col. Jacobs responded that he had personal knowledge that Gen. Shafter had given such an order concerning the ambulances. An important point was developed through the examination of Maj. La garde, one of the surgeons in chargeof the hospital at Siboney. It was that of the 1,800 or ±,400 wounded men treated in the hospital only 11 had died. This was less than 1 per cent, and Dr. Lagarde said that no war in history showed so small a mortality among wounded men. Abandoned tile Jlaria Teresa. Washington, Nov. 17.—The armored cruiser Maria Teresa has been aban doned by this time andlies a wreck off the coast of <at island. The depart ment has wired ('apt.

I . < onvrntion Hecldra In Al>itiiilon ll* roniirclloii nitli (In Clilcaso Temple. St. Paul. Minn., Nov. 15.—The \V. C. T. U. national convention decided yes terday by a vote of 285 to 71 to aban don the Chicago temple project as an affiliated interest. Five hours of ani mated, vigorous and occasionally hit ter debate was necessary before the vote was reached. The opposition to this action declared it was an act of repudiation of a moral Obligation anil fought every inch of ground, but most of the leaders were against them and they carried their point. At 6:50 the secretaries began the roll call on the motion to adopt the action of the executive committee in aban doning the temple. The roll call lasted 4*2 minutes, nearly ten minutes more being required for changes and count ing. The vote resulted 285 to 71, the temple being dropped as an affiliated body. St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 17.—The clos ing day of the annual convention of the Women's Christian Temperance union was full of business. The last of the temple was heard when Mrs. Matilda 15. Carse, of Illinois, who for 1 1 MRS. L. M. N. STEVENS. [Newly Elected President of the W. C T. U.l 111 years has been president of the Wo men's Temperance Publishing associa tion, made her last report from that organization and then delivered a touching farewell to those with whom she had so long been associated. In a dramatic scene on the stage, she clasped hands with Mrs. Stevens and Miss Cordon beside Miss Willard's va cant chair. Pennsylvania was awarded the old banner for largest membership. Kan sas took the banner fur greatest gain in membership and also for the largest county increase. Harvey, 111., gained the banner for the largest local union gain. Ohio was given the old banner fur increase in numbers; Indiana, for largest increase in membership during the year, received what is known as the white ribbon star spangled ban ner, which was suggested by Miss Wil lard at the last convention, making the second banner won by that state.

Nov. 15. —Returning Klondikers bring the news that the city of Dawson hat been visited with a $500,000 fire in which 40 buildings were burned, in cluding the new post otlice and some of the best buildings in the city. At the time the police gong sounded the fire alarm, a light wind was blow ing and the people at once saw that : .t would require quick work to save the town from total destruction. The post office was the next building south 01 the saloon where the tire started, and the work of getting the mail matter out was quickly done. Although near ly all the mail was saved it is in great confusion. All that remains to show where formerly 10 buildings stood are a few blackened logs, and the town was saved from total destruction by the fire engine. There is no insurance at Dawson. Officers are investigating the origin oi the fire. It was at first thought that the fire was the result of an incendiary, hut this idea has been entirely dissi pated. It is said there is not enough lumber and window glass in Dawson to re build the burned district and that the people are in distress and will have tc live in tents for the rest of the winter. Airiiiiialdo .Uiikr* Tlirralh Seattle, Wash., Nov. 17.—Capt. Barn eson, commander of the transport Ari zona, has arrived here from Manila. Barneson left Manila September 24. lie said the general impression among army officers was that when the peace commission concludes its labors the United States troops will have trouble with the natives. Admiral Dewey told him that Aguinaldo was not only un reliable, but treacherous. It is said , that Aguinaldo has promised his men < that upon the withdrawal of the Span iards he will declare war against the United States. He says he will kill off American soldiers faster than the Uni ted States can ship them to the islands. Agreed on a Date, Havana. Nov. 17.—The joint session of the evacuation commissioners yes terday lasted two hours. It is believed that an understanding was reached re- ! garding the date i.f evacuation. The ultimatum sent to the!■ panish commis sioners provided Hurt the evacuation should be complete by January 1, and it is said that the Spanish have agreed to that date and are trying to secure, temporary residence here after it, as it may not be possible to embark all their troops until some time later. Cuban Army to lie 2)isl>audcd. I Havana. Nkv. 15. —Gen. Calixto Gar-| cia ami the other delegates from the Cuban assembly will leave for Wash ington to-morrow.

The Cuban dolegat s t their lust ses sion at Santa Cruz ik'l Sur resolved to discharge :ill men who enlisted since August 14. the date of the cessation of hostilities, and to give an indefinite leave of absence to all o.beers and men desirous of being discharged from the Cuban array.

Failure of llic Ftr«t National Kanlt of Fill porta, Kan., IN Followed l>) tin* ■ lealli of lis President. Kmporia, Kan., Nov. 17. Wednesday afternoon the First national bank of Kmporia was closed by order of the comptroller of the treasury. An hour later Charles S. Cross, the bank's pres ident and one of the best known breed ers of Hereford cattle in the west, shot and killed himself at "Sunny Slope," his famous stock farm near town. Speculation is said to have led to Cross' downfall. His fortune lias doubtless gone down with the bank. Among the heavy losers by the failure are Lyon county and the city of Km poria. All the city and county funds were deposited in the institution. Cross was custodian of his father's es tate, which is also said to be in a wrecked condition. Cross' ending was tragic. To jority of the people of the town the comptroller's card on the doors of the bank came as a surprise, but in finan cial circles the result has been antici pated for six months. Examiner Charles .lobs, who closed the bank on an order from the comptroller, has been going over its books with the aid of President Cross for the past week. No signs of mental agitation on the part of Cross had been displayed and when Cross left the bank yesterday, ten minutes before the bank closed, lie waved his hand pleasantly to all his associates and seemed no different than usual. There was a smile on his face as he passed his friends on the street. He went immediately to Sunny Slope farm and, speaking pleasantly to the employes, passed into the bed room of Manager Kvans' house. When he did not come out, Evans entered the room. He found Cross lying in a pool of blood with a pistol in his hand. One -.hot had been liredand it went through the back of the hi*ui. Death must have been instantaneous. The bank's statement has been grow ing bad, first causing comment last May. The statement issued on Sep tember 20 last did not show improve ment. Small withdrawals of deposits resulted, but most of the business men kept faith in the bank and up to 10 o'clock yesterday heavy deposits were made. The last statement issued showed: Capital 8100,000; surplus and profits $101,28!); due to depositors, banks and bankers 8513,500; circulation $22,500. Total 57:i7,888. Examiner Jobs has been wrestling with the problem of the assets for a week and it is reported that he found them badly shrunken. To a reporter be said: "While I do not know ex actly what the outcome of this matter may be, 1 think I am justified in say ing' that the depositors will not suffer seriously. Yet when a thing like this occurs it lops off' 25 per cent, of the as sets of the bank at one blow." Cross was the son of the late Col. Harrison C. Cross, who died suddenly at Mackinac a few years ago and who was believed to be worth several hun dred thousand dollars at the time ef his death. Young Cross was B'J years old and had worked in the bank which his father helped organize since troy liood. Thirteen years ago he became interested in stock raising and in 1802 began the importation of line Hereford cattle, for which liis farm is known all over the country. Sunny Slope farm was one* of the best stocked farms any where and it was Cross' ambition to make it the leading farm of its kind in the United States. HUNDREDS ARE SICK. ilcaltli < <HI<IIIIOIIM Among Soldier* In Camp at Honolulu are Very Had. Honolulu, via San Francisco, Nov. 17.—The transports Ohio and lndianr arrived in port on the sth. The Zc landia arrived on the 7tli with the Tennessee regiment. The transport Indiana brought a woman stowaway, Sadie White. She came on board in a soldier's uniform and was not discov ered until the third day out. Then she was putin a state room and a guard placed over her. She was put ashore here. She claims to have a sweet heart on the Bennington. She was as sisted in smuggling aboard by Private P. .1. Moore. He was given 20 days in the guard house and a fine of $lO. The Ohio left for Manila on the 7th and the Indiana followed her on the Bth and the Zelandia on the 11th. Typhoid fever broke out on the Ari zona just as she was ready to sail for Manila. The promptness with which typhoid developed aboard caused the gravest apprehension among the 1,000 men about to start on a2O days' voy age through tropical seas. The Ari zona is held here. Gen. King is very sick. There are nearly 300 patient;- uuder treatment at the various state hospital camps. About 200 New York ers are on the sick list, yet conditions are improving. About 20 per cent, of the men in Camp Otis have been sick at one time. One Nebraska company leaves behind it here in the hospital 23 of its men. This is out of a contingent of 100. Work IScKiimcd at Virden Mine*. Virden, 111., Nov. 17.—The plant of the Chicago-Virden Coal Co. opened for work Wednesday morning, having been idle since April 1 anil having twice attempted to start with colored men from Alabama. The opening at this time is the result of a written agreement entered into with the min ers conceding to them the Springfield scale of -to cents perton, mine run, and agreeing to take away the stockade surrounding the works. WOuld I'uy lor a Cable Station. Washington, Nov. 17.—The acquisi tion of an island in the Caroline group owned by Spain will lie part of the work of the Paris peace commission. Cable communication between the United States and Manila via Hono lulu is regarded as desirable should we occupy the islands and the distance be tween Honolulu and (iuain island, in the Lad rone group, is so great as to make an intermediary station neces sary. The acquisition of either of two of the Caroline islands which are suit able for a cable station would involve a money consideration and the United States will pay Spain a fair price for it. HARDSHIPS OF ARMY LIFE. From the Press, Milroy, Ind. One of the first to offer their services for the country in the Civil War, was A. 15. Sefton, of Milroy, Rush Co., ind. lie made a good record. The life of every soldier is a hard one, and Mr. Sefton's case was no exception. "We were in Tennessee, penned in on all sides. Our rations were very scarce," said he,"and we had begun togo on quarter allowance, and as the rain was not enough to replenish the wells or streams, our can teens went empty. We were hurried on, and the only way to quench our thirst was to go down on our hands and knees and drink from the hoof tracks made by the horses. Our Cants.cnH urre Km fit«. "Some of us were taken sick from the sffects of tliis. I was laid up several weeks in a field hospital from fever. From that time I was always afflicted more or less. "About four years ago I became much worse. Our family doctor seemed puzzled over my case, and it began to look as if there was no hope for my recovery, and that the inevitable end was near. "Last November I was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The physicians said :hcy were an excellent medicine, but would do no good in my case. Hut 1 tried them, ind am glad I did for I became better at once. Eight boxes, taken according to direc tions, cured me. I used the last of the pills about a year ago, and have not been troubled with my ailments since." The power of Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People in the vast number of diseases :lue to impure or poisoned blood, has been demonstrated in thousands of instances ajs remarkable as the one related above.
