' Master Howard bimpson.tne delivery boy for the Coast Line Market came near climbing the goldm stairs by the aid of an A. & N. C. locomotive last evening. As the mail train ap proached Broad street, going South, ', the boy went down the street from the vicinity of the market, the boy sto ped for an instant on the near side of the - railraad track, and then crossed the track right in front of the train. The '' - cart had not passed quite far enough along to escape, the . tender, which pushed it along sideways on the git unl ' sfor three or four inches, but itot dam- aging it at all. 1 The boy frightened almost to death, leaped to the ground and ran to the . mule's head and tried to lead the ani mal away but is is said that the beast assumed its prerogative and balked, ' after gome persuation it moved "on, probably not aware of Its close call. ' .. The incident is one more, instance - of the great propriety in having gates at the crossings. Is it necessary for Borne one to be killed before these safe guards are instituted ? or may we look for them in the near future? True, the boy may have been careless but there may come a time when carelessness can not be charged except ,on the part - of the railroad itself.

' I Chairman Hull, of the military affairs committee . in presenting .the army appropriation bill to the House today, urged the necessity of complete pre- j paredness as to our army and navy for trouble in the Orient He declared that any nation not prepared to defend its position in China might as well haul down its flag and quit the Pacific, Democrats of the House have not in yean been so hopeful of carrying the country as they are now of being able to return a majority to the House as the ' result of the elections, this fall Closest students of the latest available data have been taking much comfort out of the figures of the last elections, to say nothing of the lack of the old- time clan and cohesion of the majority in both branches of Congress. ' After IS years of more or less serious consideration of the subject, the Senate today passed a pure food bill, by the decisive vot of 63 to 4. , The vote was taken after a ' day devoted almost ex clusively to debate of a desultory char acter on the measure. Several efforts were made to amend the bill and the committee accepted a number of sug gestions, but only those thus accepted were incorporated in the bill as passed. The bill makes it a misdemeanor to manufacture or sell adulterated or mis- branded foods, drugs, medicines or liq uors in the District of Columbia the Territories and the insular possessions of the United States, and prohibits the the shipment of goods from one State to another or to a foreign country. It also prohibits the receipt of such goods. Punishment by a fine $500 or by im prisonment for one year, or both, is prescribed. WHAT IS CATARRH 8. Duffy Guarantees a Cure by Hyomel WIN Refund the Money. Until very recent years, it was thought that catarrh was a disease of the blood, but now modern science has proved that catarrh is a germ disease, and can be cured only by a treatment that will kill the germ and heal the mucous membrane of the nose and throat y.v' -'V ', ' Therefore, when you have catarrh, you can readily see that if you want to cure it you should use Hyomei, which medicates the air you breathe, thus killing the catarrhal germs and healing the smarting and raw membrane of the passage through the nose and throat The complete Hyomei outfit, consist ing of an inhaler, a bottle of Hyomei, and a medicine dropper, costs only $1, while extra bottles can be obtained for 50 cents. F. S. Duffy has sold a great many Hyomei outfits, and the more he sells, the more convinced he is that he is per fectly safe in guaranteeing to refund the money if Hyomei does not cure ' A Small Blaze A spark, from a passing steamboat sot fire to a shed at the Broaddus & Ives mill yesterday morning shortly af ter nine o'c'ock and started a blaze.

Duffy Sells Hyomei Under Guarantee That It Costs Nothing Unless It . Cures. Hyomei cures the worst cases of ca tarrh simply by breathing the remedy through the pocket inhaler that comes with every outfit Stomach drugging often causes dis ordered digestion, and never makes a permanent cure of catarrh. Hyomei not only kills the germs in the throat and nose, but penetrates to the min utest air cells in the lungs and enters the blood with the oxygen, killing the catarrhal germs in the blood. The complete Hyomei outfit, consist ing of a vest-pocket inhaler and medi cine dropper, and a bottle of Hyomei, costs only $1. If this does not effect a complete cure, extra bottles can be ob tained for 50 cents F. S. Duffy knows of many people who have been cured of catarrh by Hy omei. He believes in it so thoroughly himself that he offers to refund the money in case it does not cure. N ' .-j.- I ,l Startling reports have reached the Charles T. Yerkes is fictitious.
