Gentlemen I have been a victim ot rheaawtiiro
tor several years past, i hare suffered intensely at
times, ana nave gone to tne not springs o J oomn
Dakota, and the Hot Springs of Arkansas ve
huts, seeking relief. I have also taken tnocfe
medicine under tha directions of able physicians,
About one month Stfo t suffered from one of the
saost violent attacks of the disease, and at once be
gan taking: hot salt water baths at your new and
splendid bath house in this city. Under the care of
four gentlemanly ana emcient attendant, Mr. ucnrv
Schmntte, t have, think, entirely recovered .
From experience and my observation ot tne re
lulta of treatment of many patients at the Hot
8prins;s above naned aud at your bath house, I an
convinced that better and quicker results can be ob
tained by a course of hot salt water baths at your
bath house than at any other place in the country.
I do not hesitate not only to recommend, but to
rye every person suffering from rheumatism to try
a course of baths at your bath house under the
directions of one of the physicians in charge.
I believe your new and magnificent bath house
will prove a great blessing to the many victims
Of rheumatism In this vicinity, and I hope it will re
ceive the liberal patronage it merits.
You have not requested of me any testimonial,
but I derm it proper that I should acknowledge the
great relief I have received at your bands, and you
say use what I have said in such manner as yon
swy deem proper. Very respectfully,
, J. B. Strode.

JEBBT SIMPSON FOR FREK TRADE.
The tVoadar of . tha Hoau Populist
Forces Talks on tho Tarltt
Washinqtoit, Jan. 15. In the tariff
debate yesterday Mr. Simpson of
Kansas said that while he Intended to
vote for the Wilson bill, there were
many provisions in it which he did
not approve of. He was not oue of
those who ever believed th Demo
cratic party, brought to the test
would carry out its pledges, for he
knew, while there were honest Demo
crats, the action of the Democratto
party, like that of the Republicans,
was controlled by tbe money-power.
"Tbe People's party," said he, "stands
on a platform pledged," as he inter
preted it "to the principle of free
trade. What I say here to-day in the
discussion of the bill shall be from
the standpoint of a free trader."
lie believed the cause of evil times
could be easily discovered if gentle
men would divest themselves of party
prejudice. It had not come suddenly,
but bad been tho result of causes
which began far in tho past and
would have come long ago had it not
been for the wonderful resources of
the country aud the wisdom and in
dustry of the people. The intolerable
burden put upon the farmer classes
through the indirect system of tax
ation had been one of the potent
causes which hod produced the pres
ent conditions. The farmers of the
country in 18S0 owned 00 per cent of
the wealth; 53 per cent In WO; per
cent in 1880, and 30 per cent in 18JU.
It was at this juueture Mr. Simpson
created great applause and amuse
ment by treating the house to the ob
ject lesson of his dilapidated over
coat He proposed to show the house
exactly what the poor people of the
country did wear. Reaching down
under his desk he seized a tattered
old overcoat, fringed at the edge and
bespangled with patches. He held it
on high, while the house and the gal
leries cheered. '
"I bought that of a farmer," said
he, "who told me he had left borne at
12 o'clock at night and driven twenty
five miles to sell his produce in your
boasted home market There, as Mr.
Cleveland said, is an object lesson.
Laughter, , There is a sample of
whut men wear under tbe benefi
cent system of protection," he con
tinued. "It is made of shoddy and
rags see?" Here he ripped it up the
back. "Yet" he added, "1 can nnd
its duplicate on the backs of a million
men in this country."'
"Where did ho buy it?" asked Mr. J
Cannon, representative ot Illinois.
"He bought it a year ago in this
city for ?8 and I bought him anothrr
shoddy coat to take its place for
"Is it American or imported?" asked
"I don't know," replied Mr. Simp
son. "I don't care, but it is the pro
duct of American protection. No one
can deny that" Laughter and ap
plause. Mr. Simpson concluded with
an aDoeal to the people to ring out the
old and ring in the new order of
thinga. . Many members tendered mm
their personal congratulations when
he sat down. .

DUN SAYS IT IS GETTING BET
TER SINCE THE NEW YEAR.
INCREASED INDUSTRIAL OUTPUT.
A Widely Prevalent Impression That th
Tariff Legislation Will Bo. Mor
Satisfactory Than Was a First
Fipeeted New Turk Over
whelmed With Idl Money
New Yobk, Jan. 15. R. G. Dun'
Weekly Review of Trade says: "Busi
ness has improved since the new year.
and the gain Is no longer visible only
In speculative markets. It Is the only
kind of gain that has in it the possi
bility of lasting, because it is based
upon actual increase in the production
of industries. , As all rc juice to see it
there Is perhaps a little disposition to
reckon the gain a little greater than
it is as yet, but several large estab
lishments that have started part fore
hoping to increase, and more smaller
works have started than have stopped.
Orders from dealers whose stocks ap-
broach exhaustion form a prominent
cause; another is the widely prevalent
impression that action at Washington
will be more satisfactory than many
have expected, and a belief that in
any :ase the situation will not be
changed until goods now in the work
can be marketed has weight In some
trades. Whatever the cause, even a
moderate change is most cheering.
"Hank clearings also indicate map
no large gain has occurred a yet in
tbe volume of business, being twenty-one
. per cent smaller than a
year ago. Money continues to pour
into this city as It would not if trade ,
approached normal activity, and th
demand is so narrow that loan are
8100,000,000 below deposits.
Failures for the past wek have
been 474 in th United (States, against
280 last year, and 67 in Canada,,
against 20 last year." ,
