Washinotox, D. C, Aug, 27,
The uncertainty concerning the case
of Hon. Matt W Ransom, of North
Carolina, was ended today by the
announcement of the ex-Senator's
re-appointment to the position of
minister to Mexico, which was de
ck: ed vacant by the decision of
Acting Attorney General Conrad
that Mr. Ransom's nomination to
the mission during his senatorial
lerin was unconstitutional. It was
known pretty generally in J official
-j- ,4. ti.u
sion of Mr- i1X9Qm would be re-
ceived at the White Houss today and
some r. surprise was expaessed by
thoss cognizant of the fact that it
had not been received, because their
information was that the commission
had been signed on Saturday. That
j t iia understanding is correct is

A PREACHER'S EXPERIENCE.
"Three months ago, I took a vio
lent cold which resulted in an attack
of acute bronchitis. I put myself
under medical treatment, and at the
end of two months was no better.
I found it wry difficult to preach,
and concluded to tryAyer's Cherry
Poftornl. The first bottl tjavo me
great relief; the second, which I am
now taking, has relieved me almost
entirely ;f all unpleasant symptoms,
and I feel sure that one or two bot
tles more will effect a permanent
cure. To all ministers suffering from
throat troubles, I recommend Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral." E.M. Brawlky,
