If so , it will interest you to
know that it can be stopped
with Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills ;
and without any bad aftereffects
effects , and this "without dan
ger of forming a drug habit or
having your stomach disar
ranged. They positively con
tain no opium , morphine , co
caine , chloral , ether or chloro
form in any form. Dr. Miles'
Anti-Pain Pills relieve pain ,
and leave only a sense of relief.
The reason for this is explained
by the fact that headache comes
from tired , irritable , turbulent ,
over-taxed brain nerves. Anti-
Pain Pills soothe and strength
en these nerves , thus removing
the cause. The } * arc harmless
when taken as directed.
"Wo use Dr. Miles' Anti-rain rills
for the euro of hemlnche. iuul wo
think that there la nothlnK that will
cnual them. They will euro the
severest spell of ner\ous or slclc
headache in uery few minutes. 1

The Suicide of Cuba.
Twenty years ago I first came
to Cuba , and because it is one ol
the most buautilul and enchant'
ing of islands in the world I havi
frequently returned to it. In tin
first of those twent } * years I saw
the Cubans harshly oppressed ,
later saw them strike for tlieii
independence ; during the days ol
concentration saw the Cuban
children lying in the actual gutt
ers dying of starvation , saw well
) red , delicately reared gentle
vomcn begging food at the door !
f the consulates , saw Cubat
len ol education , of refinement ,
ying of fever in foul prisons
aw them led out to be shot ; it
he fields saw the bodies of tlu
> acilicos hacked by machetes
aw the American army come t <
heir aid and the Spanish arm }
epart , and at last saw the Cub
ins masters of their own island
n free and full possession of tlu
ndependence for which they hat
uffcred all these things. Whet
he United States turned ovei
he island to the Cubans and IK
lalion ever performed an aci
norc fine or more unselfish i
> equoathed to them a model con
stitution , a government in being
i surplus in the treasury , am
The Cubans had the gooc
vishes of the entire world. Thei
lad not a single enemy. Thci
utttre lay absolutely in their owi
lands. They had only to bea
hemselvcs like men , and the Re
niblic , for which they , and thci
athers , and their father's father
lad ollered their lives , was their
n perpetuity. For four vean
hey kept the island respectci
and in peace.
WKKCKINO A NATION'S i > uos
They brought it to a state o
prosperity greater than it eve
lad known. And then , aftc
these four short years , all the ;
should have learned was disre
garded , all they should havi
earned from the Spaniards o
the evils of war , all they shotil
lave learned from the American
of the dignity and benefits o
) eace , all was forgotten.
They revived the old , old pla ;
with the same familiar charac
ers. At the polls one set o
policians played the "despot
ind the "dictator , " and anothc
) layed the ' "patrion" and th
Both were equally guilt )
Neither had a thought highe
than office. One , in order to re
uain in office , revived all th
lespotic methods of Spain ; th
other , to gain office , stapped o
lis machete , and threw the h
and into ciyil war. The ) ' woul
: iot see what must inevitably fo
ow. Even today they do no
> ee that by their folly , their se !
llshness , to gratify their vanit
they have deprived themselvc
ind every man , woman and chil
on the island of independence
To those who love Cuba the pit
of it is very great ; the shame c
it is lasting and incradicabh
For what has happened. Wehav
irranged a peace , we have in
stalled a provisional government
But we are only postponing th
inevitable. Whether or not i
pleases the Americans at hoiti
who grow beets , and what the
are pleased to call tobacco , Cub
will be annexed. The Suga
trust and the Tobacco trust ma
fight against it , the Rcpublica
party may be split in two , but i
we are to live up to what \ \
promised in the treaty of Par
and the Platt amendment \ \
must annex Cuba. But chief !
we will do it because the Ctibai
will force us to do it. Alrcad
they have forced us to do it.
Suppose the present provision ;
government does arrange f <
legal election. Suppose 2ayi
or Castillo or Gucrra or any otlu
one of the 300 generals who ai
presidential candidates is electei
There still will be one "general
who is not elected. And as sun
ly as a dipsomaniac takes t
drink , he will take to the brusl
and we will have the same o ;
comic opera revolution , with tl
attic properties and "business"
he burning of crops , the destruc-
ion of railways , the landing ol
narines , the establishing of an-
ither "provisional" government ,
For decency's sake it may be
hat we arc right to give the
Cubans another chance , to allow
hem this second opportunity tc
irove they arc capable of ruling
But. as the first time the )
'ailed , again they will fail.
Tin ; O.KMKNTS or rAii.UKi : .
There arc three elements thai
nsttre failure ; the fact that tht
great number of Cubans , beinj :
mused to self-government , leave
t in the hands of professiona
) oliticians ; the negroes , who an
) rofcssional rebels and who wil
bllow any politicians againsi
iny president ( of all the rebels ' .
lave seen in the field nine-tenth !
of them were negroes ) , and tin
politicians themselveswho woule
lestroy any existing governmen
of which they arc not office hold
ers. They will sell their birth
right for the chance to becomi
inything from a custom hotisi
nspector to a member of the cab
net , or , especially , one of thosi
ligh officials whose duties mai
> c carried out onlv in a red tour
The writer is not one of thosi
who form the first clamored fo
mnexation. On the contrary , ii
.wcnty years one who always be
ievccl that Cuba should be hide
) cndcnt , No one who witnessei
the struggles of the Cubans fo
reedom could h a v e though
otherwise. But , in the light o
this last exhibition of selfishnes
ind childishness , and since meet
ng here in Havana and in tin
"field" the men who in this re
bullion were the leaders of thei
ellow men , it would be foolisl
ind credulous to believe tin
Cubans capable either of appreci
iting self-government orof main
Cuba is going to lose her free
: lom , and there should be no mis
take as to who is responsible fo
the loss. The foreign press , am
it home the anti-imperialis
press , will accuse the Unitci
States of self-seeking , of aggran
disiemcnt , or , by any excuse , dc
priving Cuba of her rights.
And such a charge will be un
fair and untrue. It was th
United btatcs gave Cuba her in
dependence. It is the Cuban
who have destroyed it.
New York's "Human Ads. "
"I never saw anything like th
human 'ads' you have in you
New York windows , " remarked
girl up for a few weeks from th
South. "What I dislike mos
about it is that most of them ar
women. There's the Oricnta
eyed girl who sits in Turkis !
costume puffing some new bran
of cigarette , emitting arabesqu
whiffs from her mouth ; there' '
the girl who lets down her gloi
ions hair and holds out to vie\
some new Seven Sisters decoc
tion ; there's the girl who demo : ;
strates some up to date collar o
belt fastener , and , oh ! such
host of others.
"I saw two mighty queer one
yesterday. A Broadway windo'
was veritably besieged by pass
crsby straining to catch a glimps
of a girl drenched by a showe
bath operating directly above he
head. That shower bath wa
worse than any thunder plum
that ever drenched Broadway
but the girl smilingly peeled o
a mackintosh which she wore an
showed the spectators that he
underneath garments were as dr.
as powder or a lecture o
"Then the other one. A w (
man in a window in the shoppin
district makes the astonished ol
server believe she's about t
perform , in theatrical parlanc *
the Great Undressing Act. Wit
cool unconcern she unbutton !
unhooks and removes her oute
garments , one by one and then
applies Somebody's Magic Cleat
er and cleans them.
"But I don't see , " conclude
the girl from the South , lookin
down thoughtfully at her polisl
ed finger nails , "why they can'
get men and boys to do thosi
'stunts. ' Do you reckon the wo
ncn pay better ? or get pah
less ? " New York Sun.
Tlie World's Best Speller.
The "champion speller of th <
world" is Prof. D. Jones , a schoo
teacher of Lancaster , Mo.
Once a year for thirty-twc
years he has published in his
county seat paper a challenge t (
anybody who talks English t (
spell against him. His challengi
went unaccepted for thirty-twc
Jessie Hamilton1 is a countrj
girl who went to Macon a few
months back to read proof for i
newspaper. She came across tin
challenge of Prof. Jones and sh <
lias accepted it.
Miss Hamilton is IS years old
She has the certificate of her las
school teacher that there was IK
word in the English languagi
she could not spell. It was thii
certificate that secured her tin
position as proof reader.
"How did you come to dial
lengc the champion ? " bhe wa ;
"In reading proofs of a com
munication he had sent to in ;
paper I came across this , " sh
answered : 'Without being afrai *
of criticism on account of beinj

that we have paid more attentioi
to spelling than any of you
readers ever saw or ever will see
There is more spelling in ou
little finger than there is in al
the spelling books combined , b

When I read that I determined t
take the conceit out of Brothe
Jones and I'll do it or eat th
dictionarv he offers as a prize
It may look a little presumptuou
in me , but he or I must go bad
and sit down. In the country
