THE WORLD IS INDIGNANT.
The spontaneity with which

In1 all this demonstration to

entitled to some honors. Do net

Well enough said is this but
somehow we hushed our huzzas
almost before the echos of the
battle had died over the briny
waves to quarrel over the matter
as to whom the credit was due.
We could not conceive that one
less skilfu1, as
mander,, than Sampson might
have failed to have such organ
ized disposition of the fleet as to
secure victory even while he was
absent on important duty. We
may even forget that the best
laid plans may prove abortive
with one lacking the skill and
courage of Schley in the execution
In the absence of proof to the
contrary, if we could ascribe duo
honors to each in his own sphere
for faithful and efficient service,
without all of which we might
not have had a victory to record
in Santiago Bay, we could
celebrate that grand victory,
and, wThile honoring Dewey
none the less, wTe would
honor the heroes of the 3rd of
July with suitable demonstrations.
If those French Judges were
playing politics against their
own sense of justice they can now
turn their attention to such dip
lomacy as will appease a univer
sal disgust and contempt for
them and the government that
keeps them in official position.

ren aud have had a reat deal of
experience with medicines. List
summer my little daughter had
the dysentery in its worst form.
We thought sha would die. I
tried everything I could think of.
I saw by an advertisement in our
paper that Chamberlain's colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
was highly recommended and
sent and got a bottle at once. It
proved to be one of the very best
medicines we ever had lit the
house. It saved my little daught
er's life. I am anxious for every
mother to know what an excellent
ruedieipe it is. Had I known it at
first it would have saved me a
great deal of anxietv and my
little daughter much eufiering.

Both were large srecimens of
their variety, the snake being
fully five feet long.
"The crane had. been feeding
on the .carcass of a dead lamb,
when it discovered the snake
basking on a rock in the sun.
With wTings half outstretched;
the bird waited for the snake to
coil and strike, and then, eluding
its stroke wTith wonderful dexter

battered it with both wings and
beak before it could recoil again;
Then the bird would retreat and
wait for another opportunity to
"The battle" was thus waged
until the lacerated body of the
snake was stretched out, lifeless.
Seizing its victim the crane,
with a shreak of victory, flew
away with its prey to enjoy the
fruits of the encounter."
