Washington, May 2. Dy a vote or

in tho agricultural bill broadening the
Bcope of the bureau of chemistry and
Dr. Wiley's department were ellmin
atod on points of order, particularly j
those relating to tho adulteration of
food, condiments, drugs and bever- '
ages. Considerablo progress wan
mado on tho bill, after the freo seed
proposition waB out or tho way, and

seeds and urging that tn place of free

these pests, but thoy have not facil

the question whether bucIi political
contributions constituted larceny.
Such an opinion, Mr. Jerome had told
the jury, would bo given early In May I
and the cases then could be taken up
by a special grand jury, which ho had
Justice Greenbaum, tho district at

decided that tho contributions wero

doubts whether this ruling would bo

secure such a ruling before Indicting
any of the Insurance ofllclals and at

! What To Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy,
fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism,
pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder
and every part of the urinary passage.
It corrects inability to hold water
and scalding pain in passing it, or bad
effects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant ne
cessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many
times during the night. The mild and
the extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root
is soon realized. It stands the highest
for its wonderful cures of the most dis
tressing cases. If you need a medicine
you should have the best. Sold by drug
