will find banks that do not fail and a
silver currency that keeps the wheels

and a federal telegraph service that is a
working reality. He will find a con

Count Sormenho was a Portuguese

himself-Tfrom Brazil, but apparentlySof
doubtful antecedents. He arrived in
New York a year ago and was in
poor circumstances. He advertised as a
professor of fencing and languages and

He soon afterwards became a reporter

some criticism, fought a duel with Mr.

laOTATION S OF NEW
wasnangtoni, Dec. 7. The annual re
port of the secretary of the treasury,
senlt to congress today, shows, that the
total receipts for tJhie year ended June 30,
1897, were $430,378,167, and the expendi
tures $448,439,622-leavin'g a deficit for the
year of $18,052,454'. The receiptsi for the
year, however, exceeded those for the
year 1896 by $20,911,756. The custom,
it Is shown, yielded $176,554,126, and in
terna! revenue sources, $146,688,574. As
compared with 1896, this is an increase
in the customs of $16,532,374, and in in
ternal revenue $4,342,721. The secretary,
at some length, argues the need of a re
form in the currency, and in conclusion
recommends enactment of legisCatioai

deposited $125,000,000 in gold, to be used

Princess Dolgorouky was taken violent
ly ill with what the doctors;' pro

conveyed to , a filthy pesthouse, where,
after hours of untold agony, the pam
pered pet of a czar died alone, with not
a hand to hold her weary head or voice
to break the impenetrable gloom of her
lowly surrounding. -
Several days passed, when the Salva
dor authorities became suspicious, and
had the body resurrected. . A post mor

princess had been poisoned. The pri-
vate secretary and tne erovoryo uounx

discovery thiat Princess Dolgorouky had
met with her death by foul means.

that the guaranty of payment by the

against loss, if any, a tax of 2 per cent
should be levied' on unsecured circula

It often happens that the doctor Is out
of town when most needed. The 2-year-old
daughter of J. Y. Schenck, of Caddo,
Ind. Ter.. was threatened With croup,
he writes. "My wife insisted that I go
for a doctor at once; but as he was out
of town, I purchased a bottle of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy, which relieved
the child immediately." A bottle Of this
remedy in the house will often save the
expense of a doctor's bill, besides the
anxiety always occasioned by serious
sickness. When it is given as soon as
the croupy cough appears, it will pre
vent the attack. Thousands of mothers
always keep It in their homes. The 23
