The bill for establishing a civil gov
ernment in l'oito Kici" has been prac
tically completed by the sub-coinmit-tee
of the house committee on Insular
affairs. The bill prohibits the Issue of
Mock or bonds except for cash, or the
isMio of Mock or bond dividends. It
prohibits the rant inir of public fran
chises by private bills, but provides
for a ireneral franchise law reserving
to the leiri.-dat ure the power to amend,
alter or repeal franchises at will, and
also the riirht to purchase such fran
chises. It prohibits the organization of
banks of issue and the organization of
agricultural corporations. The latter
provision is to prevent the agricultural
lands of the island falling into the
hands of a M:r corporation. Following
the law in this country it also pro
vides that banks procuring title to
lands in payment of debts must dis
pose of such land within live years.

USED A WHIP ON WOMEN.'
They Wanted to Spread the Smallpox and
Defied the Oaarantine.
Indianapolis, March 11. A special
to The Sentinel says: "Two women
living at Lyons, Greene county, caught
smallpox and were promptly placed
in quarantine. They imagined they
had the chicken pox and were angry
because they were not allowed to go
and come as they pleased. One of
them said she would get even with
the town authorities by spreading the
disease all over the place.
"They started out in male attire. The
health authorities had a man on guard
and he attempted to stop them. They
attacked him and he was forced to
beat a hasty retreat. The next night
he armed himself with a black-snake
whip and when they attempted to
leave the house he gave them each a
whipping and drove them back."

Trie feed mill on Chicago avenue,
recently built by Messrs. Hud ley, whs
tlmost totally destroyed by fire at
about 1 o'clock Saturday morning-.
The origin of the fire is unknown, but
it is thought to have b;tn caused by
iths which e-cap&d from the engine.
When tho mi.l was c'.oel in the even
ing, a sru.-ill fi'e. was allowed toiemaio
in i he t ngir.e, in oraer to prevent the
w.iter in the b iler from fre zing, and
it is thought tho door of the funfC-'
was in some manner forced opon, p?r
mitting the gas to e-cipe.
Nearly the en'ire building ai d all
the machiney was destroyed and very
little, if any, can be saved. The plant
was insured for 1.000, but this will
barely cover one half of the actual
cost. The loss to the owners is a very
severe one, as they had just eot-
ten the machinery in tirst-class work

tensive business in lhe way of grind

They are not certain whether or not

CATARRH IS A CONSTITUTIONAL OR BLOOD DISEASE,
and far beyond the reach of mere local remedies. Those who rely upon them for a cure lose valuable time, meet with disap
pointment and allow the disease to take firmer hold. Only a real blood remedy can reach this troublesome and dangerous disease.
S. S. S cures Catarrh because it first cleanses and builds up the blood, purifies it, makes it rich and healthy, stimulates and
puts new life into the sluggish worn-out organs, and thus relieves the system of all poisonous accumulations.
Mrs. Josephine Polhill, of Due West, S. C. writes : ' I had Catarrh, which became so deep
seated that I was entirely deaf in one ear, and all inside of my nose, including part of the bone,
sloughed off. When the disease had gone this far the physician gave me up as incurable. 1
determined to try S. S. S. as a lat resort, and Ixnjan to improve at once. It seemed to get at the
seat of the disease, and after a few weeks' treatment I was entirely cured, and for more than
seven years have had no sign of the disease."
S. S. S. is made of roots, herbs and barks of wonderful tonical anil purifying
properties. It is the only vegetable blood purifier known, and a certain and safe
cure for all blood troubles. Send for our book on Blood and Skin Diseases, and at
the same time write our physicians about vour case. Thev will cheerfully give von
any information or advice wanted. We
