"I never felt so near my grave,”
writtes W. R. Patterson, of Welling
ton, Texas, as when a frightful cough
and lung trouble pulled me down to
100 pounds, in spite of doctors trea
ment for two years. My father and
mother and twto Bisters died of con
sumption, and that I am alive today
ie due solely to Dr. King's New
Discovery, which completely cured
me. Now I weigh 187 pounds and
have been well and strong for many
years.” Quick, safe, sure, its the

take L’,000 recruits in addition to tin
20,b00' troops which has been mob:
li/cd and en route from army posts tcj
the Mexican frontier. The recrulu j
will not be withdrawn from the cam;: i
even if it be found that the coni
mnnds that have Don ordered tin r-.
have their full quota. The fact <:•
this order iodieates the permanency
of the camps which are proposed i;« i
the Mexican lines. An additional im
poitant ordtr went to the Pacific ti • t
by which it will receive fiuti additioi i
marines out of the 1.000 now oti thi
i’acilic uoast. These marines will
follow tho cruiser squadron which
is going from l ots Angeles to San
Diego and it is probable that ail ma j
lues, including the new quota will gc
into camp near San Diego.

publics of the Western hemisphere.
The situation in the republic of
Mexico demands a more instant an t

doctrine by the United States to its
affairs in case of a threat of hectoring
messages or any proposed drastic ac
tion by France, Germany or England

Chicago July Delivery Dropped to
89 Cents per Bushel,
END OF HIGH PRICES IN SIGHT
Government Crop Report Shows
Large Supply of Wheat in Hands
Chicago, Mar. 9. Wheat for July
delivery sold on the Chicago board ot
trade for S9 cents a bushel.
One veal' a:ro wheat for the July He
livery was selling for $1.18 a bushel. 1
Good wheat, flour sold on the Chi
cago board of trade for $4.55 a barrel.
Five weeks ago this same flour was j
selling on the hoard of trade Jar
$G.55 a barrel.
The end of the decline In the prices'
of wheat and flour Is not, according to
men who keep well posted on condi
tions, In‘sight. It is freely predicted
on the board of trade that wheat will
sell almost as low as 70 cents a bush
el before there is an improvement
The failing off in i.»e price of whoai
and flour is, if good judges of condi
tions arc not wrong in their prognos
tication, merely the forerunner of a
general decline in the prices of all
articles that have made the price of
living such a burden to the poor man,
the, wage earner and the salaried
man. for so many months back.
It is freely predicted that prices
will go tumbling all down the line;
that provisions and meats will he low
er and that the man who carries a tin
dinner pail to work each day' will
again come Into his own —that the ,
dinner pails will again‘lie filled with
good nourishing food, meats in par
tlcular purchased at reasonable
The United States government
crop report estimates the amount of
wheat held ou the farms March !,
1011 at the enormous total of 179,090,*
000 bushels. On the board of trade
they add to these figures 43,133,000
bushels as the visible supply not in
cluded in the government report and
that 57,000,000 bushel; estimated as
being held in the hands of millers, in
eontry elevators and iu the shape
of flour. This brings the total of
wheat and flour in the country on 1 lie
first of the month according to the
best estimates, 279,323,500 bushels
A year ago the total figured the same
way was 203,103,800 bushels. There,
are no buyers for this enormous1
amount of wheat. There is no export
trade; tlie millers are not buying;
wheat is at a dead standstill. On the
Chicago board of trade the world's
greatest wheat market, there was soid
only 5,000 bushels of wheat.
There are S4.U00 barrels of flour in
Chicago at the present time. Flour is
piled up in the storehouses, in the
elevators, on the seaboard—every-,
where. That is why prices of flour!
As the market in wheat and iio'ur J
goes, so goes tlie provision market.!
The dealers in provisions make no j
secret of the fact that, in their belief, I
the end of the high prices is in sight.
They reason in this way:
"The continued high prices have
practically driven the consumption of
meats out of t lie market. The poor
man could not afford to buy; the rich
man curtailed his buying. Consump
tion of meats has fallen off to a mark
ed degree. Stocks are piling up prices
must go down. The poor man will
1 onie into his ow n again."
Over production of wheat is given
as the cause for the glut on the mar
ket. Farmers have been getting high
prices for wheat and have increased
their acreage year by year. There
have been no had years. The United
states cannot consume all of the
wheat that is grown in the country.
There is no export trade. Hence the
glut in the market and the decline in
GO S ON
Democrats Propose First to Ratify
REDUCE NECESSITIES .OF LIFE
The Farmer is Not to Be Overlooked
and General Business Interests
Will Not Suffer They
Washington, Mar. 9.—Responsible
leaders in the senate and house made
it plain that it is not the purpose ot'
the Democratic party in the extra
session to run amuck on the tariff
questton. Senator Owen the new lead
t ;• of the progressive democracy in
the upper house; Senators Bacon and
Overman and Champ Clark, who is to
be speaker have declared that sanity
and common sense will be the rule of
action of their party. The predict
tiiat Republicans who are expecting
to see tlie Democratic party split on
the tariff rock will lind it emerge
from the Sixty-second congress united
and stronger then ever before.
According to the program these
representatives members talked over,
the reciprocity agreement is to be
atified and those schedules that in
volve monopoly, controlled products
and the necessities of life will be re
vised. The remainder of the sched
ules will bo left for the regular ses
sion. There will be no wholesale re
vision and no upsetting ot business
generally. While the reciprocity
agreement is under way in the senate
the house committee will work out
its scheme of revision regarding wool
and cotton, woolen and cotton goods,
flour, dressed meats and other neces
saries of life and probably agricul
tural implements. The farmer is not
to be overlooked. Whatever action
the Democrats may take it will com
pensate the farmer for Die free ad
mission of agricultural products from
Canada and remove from his should
ers the burden of carrying the entire
load of tariff taxation, in return for
free farm products from Canada the
farmer is to be given either free or at
greatly t duccd rates the articles he
consumes and tlie implements with
which he raises his crops.
The general business interests will
not suffer, unless it be the agricul
tural implement trust and with this
kind of a program before them the
responsible leaders believe tbe extra
session can be limited to about three
