Washington, Aug. ir>. —In reference
to a London dispatch yesterday stat
ing that President Kruger had asked
for a sanctuary in the United States
consulate before Gen.' Roberts' entry
into Pretoria, It was said at the state
department that no formal application
ever has come from Consul Hollls for
a sanctuary in the American consulate
for President Kruger and that the in
structions sent to the consul to con
fine his energies to his consular duties
was not a result of any discussion of
an asylum for the Boer president. It is
stated also in this connection that the
right of asylum, or sanctuary, does not
exist as to consulates, but is purely a
diplomatic immunity at a legation or
other quarters occupied by a min

Washington, Aug. 15. Surgeon Gen
eral Sternberg has received a report
from Major Guy L. Edie. president of
the board of health in Manila. The re
port states that leprosy was introduced
in the Philippines In 1633, when the
emperor of Japan sent 150 lepers to the
islands. Since then the number has in
creased until the estimate is that there
are 30,000 lepers in the archipelago,
largely in the Visayas. In a recent in
spection of Manila. 100 lepers were
found concealed in various houses,
while many others escaped to the

Paris. Aug. 13.—During maneuvers
s>f the Fernch fleet off Cape St. Vincent
I Saturday night a collision occurred be
! tween the first class battleship Bren
| nus, flying the flag of Vice Admiral
I Fournier, commander of the fleet, and
; the torpedo boat destroyer Framee.
j The Framee sank immediately. The
j accident was due to the fact that the
| Framee turned to the right when or
j dered to the left. Details thus far re
j ceived are very meager, bui only a
! small portion of the crew, consisting
of four officers and 58 men, were saved.
It is believed that no fewer than 50
were lost. The Framee, which was of
313 tons displacement, was a recent
addition to the French navy.
It is now known that out of the
Framee's crew 14 were saved. The lost
include three officers, Capt. Mauduit du
Plessix, the second lieutenant and the
chief engineer.
Admiral Fournier, in a dispatch from
Cadiz, says that at the time of the ac
cident the Brennus was steaming
ahead of the Framee on the left. The
flagship and the torpedo boat destroyer
were exchanging luminous signals,
when the latter approached too near
the Brennus.
The captain of the Framee ordered
his helmsman to steer 20 degrees to the
left, while he increased speed. The
man misunderstood or badly executed
the order, steering to the right, which
brought the destroyer under the ram
of the Brennus, the Framee being cut
in twain.

We have lots more like it
Mr Jos. Hooker of 102 North Spruce
street, says;—"l was a long time afflict
ed with lameness in my back and a pain
over my kidneys. I had a great deal
of nervousness, restlessness, did not
sleep well, had bad dreams and was
continually tossing from side to side
striving to get. a comfortable position.
The kidney secretions were not normal.
I was tired all the time and often hada
dull aching in the back of my neck. I
read accounts of Doan's Kidney Pills
curing people. The description of their
symptoms tallied almost exactly with
mine and this induced me to try the
remedy. On using them a short time
the whole trouble disappeared."

Does Baby
If your baby is delicate
and sickly and its food does
not nourish it, put fifteen
or twenty drops of Scott's
Emulsion in its bottle three
or four times a day and you
will see a marked change.
We have had abundant
proof that they will thrive
on this emulsion when other
food fails to nourish them.
It is the same with larger
children that are delicate.
Scott's Emulsion seems to be
the element lacking in their
food. Do not fail to try it if
your children dy not thrive.
It is as useful for them in
summer as in winter.

Harrisburg, Aug. 15.—Cora Jiles,
colored, aged 28 years, was shot and
killed by Jerre Washington, aged 35
years, a colored hod carrier employed
at Steelton, last night at her home in
Harrisburg. Washington theu commit
ted suicide by swallowing two ounces
of laudanum and jumping into the
Pennsylvania canal rather than be
taken by the police. Washington
boarded with Mrs. Jiles, who did not
live with her husband, and the only
motive the police can ascribe for his
crime is tlmt he was jealous of her.
During a quarrel with iMrs. Jiles last
evening Washington shot her three
times, instantly killing her. He left the
house and to several persons who at
tempted to arrest him he gave warning
that he would shoot the first person
who laid hands on him. When the po
lice appeared on the scene he jumped
into the canal and swam to the op
posite shore, where he was confronted
by a crowd. Two men caught hold of
him and tried to pull him out of the
water. He jerked loose from them,
swallowed the laudanum and then
drowned himself. His body has not yet
been recovered.

A childless home is a cheerless home.
The maternal instinct exists in every
woman, and when it is nngratified she
is deprived of much of the happiness of
life. It often happens that childless
ness is due to some cause which can be
removed, and often is removed by the
use of Dr. Pieree's Favorite Prescrip
tion. The vigor and vitality which this
remedy imparts to the delicate womanly
organs, puts them in a condition of nor
mal health, the lack of which is often
the sole obstruction to maternity. Every
woman should read Dr. Pierce's Com

parsnip-colored complexion indicates it.

matism, a dull pain or ache in the back
or over the hips, stomach trouble, desire
to urinate often, or a burning or scald

an uiisatisfii'd feeling as if it tnustlie at
once repeated, or if the urine has a brick
dust, deposit or strong odor.

Delay may lead to gravel, catariliof
the bladder, intlamination, causing stop

run into Height's Disease, the mostddn

Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root, the great

such diseases. Its reputation is world

Among the injured were Gen. Buffin,

courage of the king ingoing alone
among his people in order to succor
the victims of the accident and in driv

Three Cliniiels Demolished.
ITong Kong, Aug. 13.—The United
States consul general here, Mr. R
Wildman, has received a telegram
from the American Baptist mission
at Swatow, province of Kwang Tung,
saying that three more chapels have
been demolished and that there has
been much looting of mission prop
erty. The dispatch also says that an
attempt was made on the life of the
pracher there, and that the officials
are taking no action in the matter.
The troubles are attributed to the
"Vegetarian society," probably an off
shoot of the notorious "Triads,"though
some believe the "Vegetarians" are
connected with the Boxers.

j Ogdensburg, N. Y., Aug. 10.—A sen
sation has been created at the shrine
i of Our Lady of Victory on the lawn of
j Sacred Heart Convent, in this city,
; by the miraculous and sudden cure of
| Mrs. James McCormick, wife of Capt.
McCormick, of the lake tug Seymour,
of the Ogdensburg Coal and Towing
J company fleet. For over a year she
has been an invalid, suffering severest
l pain from acute rheumatism. Believ
j ing she would be benefited by worship
j ping at the shrine, she was wheeled
there in her chair, and pushing up
1 j close to the foot of the statue began
| reciting the litany. Suddenly, with
a cry of joy, she arose from her chair,
i going among the worshipers and
walking to her home some distance
| away, leaving her chair behind. Huu
' dreds are calling at her home to learn
of her cure, and she is kept walking
about for their benefit. This is the
I first cure publicly witnessed at this
I shrine, which was erected a few
|' weeks ago.

London, Aug. 13. —"The sooner we
can be got out of this the better, for it
is inconvenient for the Chinese govern
ment and unsafe for ourselves." This is
a message received last evening from
Sir Robert Hart, dated Pekm, Aug. 5,
and sent in cipher to the Chinese mari
time custom? office in London.
Sheng, director general of railroads
and telegraphs, according to a Shang
hai dispatch to The Standard, ex
presses grave fears for tho safety of

defeated Chinese troops return "to the
A dispatch to a news agency from
Tien Tsin says: "Junks and stones
block the river beyond the advanced
posts of the allies for a considerable
distance, but the dryness continues,

the enemy's damming ineffective."

«-(liver* Trial.
Georgetown. Ky., Aug. 15. —The
final instructions were read to the jury
by Judge Cantrill last evening in the
Powers trial, and Judge James Sims
made the opening argument to the
jury for the defense. Defendant Powers
is in such a nervous and critical con
dition that his attorneys filed a physi
cian's affidavit that he was unable to
attend a night session of the court, but
Judge Cantrill said a cot could be pro
vided for him and he could lie down
in the court room during the speeches.
The instructions to the jury are con
sidered by defendant's attorneys as be
ing entirely too severe and tend to les
sen Powers' chances of acquittal, al
though they are still confident of a
verdict in his favor.

Pittsburg, Aug. 15.—A novel and
fatal hold up is reported from Greens
burg, Pa., late last night. As a party of
Slavs were returning to their homes
after being paid off at the mines at
Pleasant Unity, they were met by
three men on bicycles who ordered
them to hand over their money. A gen
eral fight followed in which one of the
Slavs, Andy Kanicha was killed and
another, George Netin, so badly cut
that his life is despaired of. Each of
the Slavs was robbed of $33, all they
had, and the highwaymen escaped on
their wheels, going eastward.
