THE CUBAN ANNEXATIONISTS.
The assurance given bv President
McKinley that the promise of the
United States that Cuba should have
an indepandent government shall be
carried out has not wholly discouraged
the annexationists, says the Omaha
Bee. One of the organs of this ele
ment, the Philadelphia Inquirer, de
clares that Cuba must be annexed.
".Let congress take the commonsense
view," says that paper. "According
to the president himself, the war was
justified as one of self preservation on
our own part and our interests can
only be preserved by maintaining
control over the island. Cuba will
have far greater freedom and Inde
pendence as a part of the United
States than as a separate nation con
tinually torn by strife and revolution,
Leave her to herself and it cannot be

terrible affair occurred in the
Dunkard settlement near Goshen, Ind.,
early in tbe week, which resulted in
the deatn oi v ernon liigier, only son
of Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Bigler. Young
Bigler was persuaded much against:
his will to unite with the Dunkard
church, and last Monday was taken
from a sick bed and baptized In the
icy waters. The shock was so great
that he died the next day from the
results. His parents, who are promi
nent members of the church, insisted
upon, the baptism, and the feeling
among such oi the neighbors as are
not members of the church is very
bitter toward them, and many threats
are being made. Whether the coroner
will take action is a matter that is
now being discussed, but nothing so
far has been done, and just what action
could be taken is a puzzling problem.
Bitter disappointment awaited Wm.
S. White when he marched into the
marriage license clerk's office the
other day at Lancaster, Pa., and asked
for the necessary papers to wed Emma
Knoudt, his step-mother. The woman,
who is 32 years old, was divorced from
his aged father, and White thought it
the proper thing to keep her in the
familv. He himself is 34. The clerk
refused the license on account of the
relationship of the couple, and White
left in an angry mood, muttering that
there were other counties in the state.

Today several members of both com

BAD FIRE AT ELMWOOD.
Explosion of a Lump Is Supposed to Have
Iteen the Cause
Elmwood was visited by a disastrous
fire Saturday evening. The greater
portion of the citizens were at a re
vival at the Methodist church when
the fire broke out, giving it ample
time to get started. The fire depart
ment and citizens did good work, but
owing to low water in the tank and the
headway of theflames,the fire could not
be checked until four heavily stocked
buildings were consumed. A C.
Wright and E. T. Comer were quite
badly burned about the face and hands
while fighting the flames.
The loss is about as follows: Clem

claim to perform miracles. It does
not claim to cure all cases of consump

give comfort and relief in advanced
stages of these diseases and to usually
cure early stages. It is certainly
worth trying by those afflicted or
threatened with these dread diseases.
Here is a good one from an exchange:

this morning ordered 13on Hart, a
familiar character ou the etroets of
Platt&mouth at frequent intervals
for twenty-five years, to tho
poor farm. Ho had workod as a
farm hand for L-'o Allison and others
and was a good workman when sober,
but this was a condition he never
allowed himself to be in when he had
money. OHlcer Murray picked him
up on the street last night and as he
had no place to go took him to jail.
He said he was unable to work any
longer so the commissioners decided

A CRITICAL TIME!
During the Battle of
SICK OR WELL, A RUSH
NIGHT AND DAY.
The Packers at the Battle of Santiago de
Cuba were all Heroes. Their Heroic Kf
forts in netting Ammunition and Rations
to the Front Saved the Hay.
P. E. Butler, of pack-train No. 3,
writing from Santiago de Cuba, on
July 23, says: "We all had diarrhoea
in more less violent form, and when
we landed vre had no time to see a
doctor, for it was a case of rush and
rush night and day to keep the troops
supplied with amunition and rations,
but thanks to Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, we
were able to keep at work and keep
our health; in fact, I sincerly believe
that at one critical time this medicine
was tbe indirect savior of our army,
for if the packers had been unable to
work there would have been no way
of getting supplies to the front. There
were no roads that a wagon train
could use. My comrade and myself
had the good fortune to lay in a sup
ply of this medicine for our pack-train
before we left Tampa, and I know in
four cases it absolutely saved life."

manufacturers of this medicine, the

Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
for any season, but perhaps more gen
erally needed when the languid, ex
hausted feeling prevails, when the
liver is torpid and sluggish and the
need of a tonic and alterative is felt.
A prompt use of this medicine has
often abated long and perhaps fatal
bilious fevers. No medicine will act
more surely in counteracting and free
ing the system from the malar5al
poison. Headache, Indigestion, Con
