WAsiiinotox, April 0. In tho House
to-dny Mr. Adams of Pennsylvania, of
tho committco on foreign affairs,
was the first speaker on Cuban resolu
tions. He said that he should have
refrained from addressing tho Houso
further on this question but for tho
"extraordinary performance of tho
gentleman from Mnine (Mr. lloutclle)
yesterday." Referring to tho charge
that tho people wore not behind the
effort of Congress to grant proper rec
ognition to Cubi, he asserted that
Congress had seldom beforo recoived
so ninny petitions on any subject as
this. He contended that a handful of
Senators had taken advantugo of the
rules of tho Senato to prevent tho
adoption of tho conference report by
filibustering. The Cubans had an or
ganized form of government and wero
in every way ontitled to recognition.

colleague, Mr. Drapor, a member of

Mr. Drapor and made a plea for

ures should be taken to put an end to
tho barbarous warfare pud that for
this country to fail to do this would
be to incur tho loss of self-respect ns
well as to deserve tho contempt of all

Washington, April 0. Tho Senato
committco room on public buildings
und grounds was broken into last
evening, and an unsuccessful attempt
mado to break into Mr. Quay's desk.
Tho iron bolts fastening tho doors at
tho top and bottom were pried out of
the sockets, showing that strong tools
had been employed.
It is believed by the senator that an
attempt was mado to get possession of
his political papers, but, oven if tho
desk had been opened, tho political
papers would not have been obtained,
as they had all been removed to Mr.
Quay's houso a week ago. Nothing
clso'in the room was disturbed.
About a year after the election of
188s Mr. Quay's desk was robbed of all
his political papers, and they have
never been recovered. They wero not
importnut, as they were what the
senator termed "trash left over which
might well have been destroyed."

WHAT IT MEANS TO LOSE THE
POWER TO SLEEP.
A Ynnnjf llnltlmoro Womiu Whoso Nerves
l'rctrnted Her From Keating.
From the Herald, Baltimore, Md.
Mrs. Jessie Shea is a young married
woman whose tidy home Is at 855 West
TexInRton Street, Baltimore. For many
months Mrs. Shea wns a terrible suf
ferer from a nervous nftectlon which
resulted in general debility and super
induced that ofttlmep Incurable mal
ady, Insomnia. A Herald reporter
called at her residence recently and
wns shown Into tha i.eatly furnished
parlor and told that Mrs. Shea
would be down Jn a few min
utes. Soon a light step waa heard
tripping down thf stairway nnd
Mrs. Shea, radiant with health and the
vigor of young womnnhood, entered
the room. When asked If she had used
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, with a smile
which betokens the utmost satisfac
tion, the -young lady replied "Yea, 1
have used them, nnd hnd I not heard of
them I doubt If I would have been here
to answer your call."
Continuing, sho satd: "About two
months ago I had nn attack of what
the doctors termed nervous prostration.
My appetite left mo entirely and what
little sleep I got, and It was very lit
tle, I assure you, wns not by any
means refreshing. On the contrary,
when I awoke from a nap I had such
a tired and exhausted feeling that I
was loth to try to .ret to sleep again. I
continued to lose flesh day after day
until I wns almost a shadow compared
with my former self.
"Aa noon bb I began to take the Pink
PHIs I commenced to Improve. I am
no longer troubled with nervousness.
I have a good appetite, experience none
of the feelings Incident to Indigestion,
nnd I sleep ns sound as a healthy child.
The pills are certainly all they are rep
resented to be, and, as I believe I owe
my life to the fact of having used
them, I shall always cheerfully recom
mend them to my friends and other
persons whom I find to be suffering
from similar maladies.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pllln contain, In
a condensed form, all the elements nec
essary to give new life and richness to
the blood and restore shattered nerves.
Pink Pills are sold In boxes at GO cents
a box, or six boxes for J2.C0, nnd may
be had of all drugglBts, or direct by
mall from Dr. Williams' Med. Co.,
Schenectady, N. Y.
