slve discharge kept coming out. As It
flowed over the healthy surface of the
ear on the outside It poisoned It and
caused It to become very soi e and much
swollen; my hearing was very poor on
that .side. I dcspalied of ever being
cured, as I had consulted many good

anyone and will recommend Dr. Dennis
to all who may suffer as I have."

tile plains of grain producing land, This
territory, however, has become uxliatist
ed, and agriculture Is consequently 011
tho decline, Last year's wheat product
was only aa,()(M,(.00 bushels.
Tho Chilian government has become
alarmed by this fact, and last year paid
tho passages or nearly a5,0G0 farm hands
from Germany nnd England with a view
to restoring these fields' to their old con
dition. Among tho foreign nations
which luivo interests in tho welfare of
tho Utile republic, Great Britain ranks

While tlio majority of English and
French residents in Chill aro (!iigag(fd iu

England feu) to Chili last year goods
to the valuu of f.MI.OOO.OOU and bought
$.17,000,000 worth of raw products. Tho
Chilian imports from Germany amount
ed to $1 1,000,000 and thu exports from
Chlii to that country to fi.OOO.OOO. These
figures show that whllo England paid to
Chili a commercial tribute or f 11,000,000
Germany received the nice- llttlu sum of
f!),000,000 from tho tiny republic. Tho
United States Mill to Chill goods aggre

estimate. It is n law or nature that a
poor soil with a favorable climato will
produce it sturdy and determined race.
For over 400 years tho Chilians havo
lx.-cu a belligerent nation. They are in
defatigable, fearless, proud or their inde
pendence and always ready when nn op
portunity oirers to go to war and extend
their territory. During tho last war

Had it not leeii for tho interference or
the great powers Peru would have sim

Peru had to surrender tho rich depart

not being nblo to pay tho war indemnity
demanded, was obliged to cedu for ten
years tho provinces of Tacna and Arica
with nil their revenues. This tonu will
expire iu 18011, when tho inhabitants will
bo asked to vote whether they wish to
belong to Peru or to Chill.
At home the Chilian is courteous, hos

iu boclal intercourse. Tho lower clnt-sea
despise foreigners, and last year's labor
troubles iu Iquiquu, Autofagastau and
Valparaiso were only suppressed by thu
prompt uctiou or tho government.
Englishmen and Frenchmen aro most
popular, probably because they bring
tho most money into tho country. Apart
from this the population has never for
gotten that Lord Cochrane assisted thCm
iu wresting their independence from Peru
in ISail, and thu erection of the admiral's
htatuo in Valparaiso was 11 mark of grat
itudu never bestowed before upon any
foreigner iu Chili. Tho government of
Chill is more an oligarchy than a re
public, us only thu wealthier classes are
allowed to vote iu a presidential elec

control. Iu 1890 as many iih 72,000 chil

l its a bit of llgurntivo expression, but tho
only authentic case 011 record is that of
j a brindlo heifer, owned by tho veter
inary tchool of the University of Penn

hho is simply a well grown yearling,

Apparently the animal suffers no incon
