Washington, April 11, 1808.
Now that tho uncertainty is over
there is less excitement in Washington
than thcru has been at any time sinco
tho news of the blowing up of the
Maine was received. It was not the
probability of war that caused tho ex
citement, but tho fear that in some
way trickery Spanish diplomacy would
get the best of us without giving us an
opportunity to light. That fear oxisted
more or less up to the moment that
tho die was cast by tho president's
message asking congress to provide for ftl
imiiirxjuto forcible intervention to
(ll-ll-n tint SJ.winiuli ll,nr mil ,f f.t,..
Although tho olncial announcement of -oPtotu the changes
an armistice iuCuba declared by Spain
is generally believed to be merely an
other trick, it win feared that it might
cause tho president to postpone his
message or to change his mind about
bending it in. Now those fears are all
past. Gcti. Lee and all the Americans
who desired to leave aro safely out of
Cuba, and tho message is before con
gress. Consequently there is a feeling
of contentment because it is knowu
that long deferred justice is about to
be meted out to Spaiu by tho United
States, and Yoxatious delays aro ovo
Congress is practically a unit, although
there aro u few individuals who would
prefer proceeding a little different, nnd
by the middle of the week the authority
iil be placed in tho president's hands
to use the United States army and
uavy to drive the Spanish out of Cuba,
and before thu week closes Cuba is
likely to be surrounded by the most
formidable licet of warships this conn
try lias ever assembled under one
commander, and the steps will have
been taken that will send the neees
s.iry troops to be lauded on Cuban soil
to cooperate with our .-.hip,. The
plans are all made, the -.hips have up
steam ami only await the linul ordei to
stall The only tiling tli.it can upset
out prugiam now is the .showing of the
while feather b Spun, but those who
are Ihoroiuhly conversant with the
Spanish character as well as with ex
isting political conditions in Spain
think that a big bluff at making an ag
gressive war upon tho United States
will be mule and kept up until there is
danger not only of Spain losing Cuba
but her other colonies and her entire
navy. Then she will, through the Kit
ropean powers sue for peace. Mean
while, it is known that tho Spanish
program is not to openly light our
navy, but to try to use its fastest cruis
ors and torpedo boats anil torpedo
boat dostroyers to cripple our com
morco and sea coast towns and endeav
or to keep out of the way of our heavy
lighting ships. Thoy will Hud, how
over, that this will bo a vory dangerous
sort of game to engage in.

Sweet Master' Its music lingeisin
our ears and our hearts have happi
ness, for it bespeaks tlictiitimph ol the
beautiful We know tha' tin- time n..w
fowl the harsh oiilliues of the bills
and the ban- trets will be soften, d
Willi delicate foliage, and the blown
and lui'kiiim tints ,,( il,,, uii,,.,.
bound landscape be transformed into
every possible tint of gieen. Under
the iiillucncc of this thought we let!
raised up, we stand in tho high places
of joy, wo are full to overllowing of
tho exhilaration that comes to the soul
through eyes that see and understand.
Hut empty our larders and lob us of
clothes, drive us together like beasts
and shelter us worse, slash our trembl
ing limbs with machetes where then
would bo this bland sense of physical
contentment? Surround us with all
the glories of tropical verdure, let the
sun riso in grandeur and shino tin
dimmed, let it sink in tho west nnd. in
sinking, paint unspeakable wonders
across one half tho heavens how
would this feast of tho oyo satisfy you
when hunger whs driving out all other
feelings? Eastor and its re-birth of
beauty would bo a moro wretched
mockery of miscr.
who had made the earth-liie for 3011
anil yours a howling was'e I'nnjm,
imagine yourself under such pressure
of unearned and undeserved sorrow,
calmly contemplating a goutle gliding
onward through eternity? Nay, if
naught else could be done ymi would
raise your ghostly hand to strike, ju-st
foi thu satisfaction of making even a
motion of protest.
Let IIS be done With self-dpreiviiitr
and glib 1 espouses and .suing piety mid
tho contented folding of fattened
hands! There is a war against w uuen
and children ami defenceless men (I
am not writing ol tho insuriieiil.s. Thcv
are safe) near enough to our co tst to bo
reached in four hours. This war in
Cuba is being carried on by a 11a

It is impossible for the system
to withstand the demands raado
upon it just nt this season, with
out the assistance of a good puri
fying and strengthening tonic.
Tho changes which Naturo docrees
shall take place each spring aro
so sovero that a breakdown is
almost sure to come. It is wise
thnt all possiblo assistance bo
given during this poriod, as upon
this purifying process depends tho
henlth for tho entire summer.
Everybody just now should take a
thorough courso of Swift's Specific
which thoroughly cleanses tho
blood of all tho accumulated im
purities, tones up and strengthens
the ontiro svstem. and aids Nntnrn
in renovating and renewing tho
body so as to rondor it healthy and
strong. Those who purify their
blood with S. S. S. at this season
are well fortified against tho many
forms of disease so prevalent dur
ing the dreaded heated term, for
it has been demonstrated that the
system that is thoroughly purified
in the spring is well prepared to
resist diseaso all summer.
No other remedy on tho market
is equal to Swift's Speoifio as a
spring medicine, because it is the
only purely vegetable blood rem
edy and is guaranteed absolutely
freo from potash, mercury and all
other minerals. It cleanses, puri
fies, builds up and strengthens.
Insist on S. S. S., for there is noth
