We have derived so much benefit
from the use of SAVODINE, that we
wish to add our testimony to the list of
those already acquainted with its mer
its. '-
My wife hss been using SAVODINE for
quite a while for cold in the head, also
baa found it ft ready relief for CAT A RRH
but above all that, is the fact of its
having proved itself invaluable te us fur
our baby. A short time ago he was ta
ken very sick, and as be would clap his
little hands to his ear. we decided he
must be suffering with earache, and re
alizing that something must be done at
once, we put a tiny bit of SAVODINE in
his ear eovered It with warm cotton and
in a few minutes he was sleeping ss
sweetly ss though he had never had a
pain. We cheerfully recommend Savo
dine as we will always feel grateful for
what it hit: I lone for us.

Its Departure From , Dying Man
Witnessed by X fi iy
- ' ' Expert v
-V : - - ' --
Chicago, July JSThe jftightof the
vital spark" has hoeii witnessed, accor
ding to a statement made today by Dr.
Patrick S, O'Donnell, an X ray expert,
who has been following up experim nts
made by Dr. W. J. Kilner, of London,
England.
Some time ago, using a chemicalized
film scaled between two thin sUips of
glass, Dr. O'D mnell rave a demonstra
tion to twenty physicians of the aura,
or "electrical radiation" of living bod
ies, four young women being used .as
subjects. The aura developed as a
strong ray of light surrounding the en
tire form of the suject.
"Last night," said Dr. O'Donnell,
"in the prssence of several physicians
at Mercy Hospital, I tried the experi
ment on a dying man. He was rapidly
sinking. Suddenly the attending phy
sician announced that the ' man' Was
dead. .The aura began to spread from
the body', and presently disappeared.
Further observation of ..thej. corpse re
vealed no sign of the aura.
"We da not claim that, the light is
the soul, or spirit. In fact no one seems
to know what it is, ' In my opinion,
however, it is some sort of radio-activity
made, visible by the use of the chem
leal screen. My experiments, howev
er, seem to prove that it is the anima
ting power, or current of life of human
beings."

it Will go over until Tuesday when he
expects to return to Washington from
the summer capital.
Dr. Wiley declined to discuss his an
swer in any way, but intimated- that it
was "brief and to the point. An un
verified repot t is current here that the
President will milily reprimand Dr.

then as a whole persons offering tt bid

fourth cash and the balance in three an
nual installments.
The commissioners of sale will de
termine the ' number of parcels into
which the property will be divided f. r
first offer at auction. The division will
probably be in blocks rather than lotf.
There was some question as to how the
water system on the grounds would be
sold, but this was decided' in favor of
its sale, in one parcel as a whole, the
entire water workB system to be includ
ed in the property .when the land and
improvements are finally offered as a
whole.
The decree of sale Bfuhns the right
of mechanics' liens to come in ahead of
the Jamestown Exposition first mortg

the court, when the mechanics' liens
are valid.
ThoFe nominated to the court today
as special commissioners of sale were
H. M Kerr, R. H Baker, R. M. Lett,
H. C. D ivis and H. H. Rumble. Most
of those named were trustees under

Wide Decline In Futurea Falling
Lower As Trade Pro-
gresses.
New-Orleans, La,, July 19. Yester
day's cotton market was one of the mo; t
exciting in many months, with heavy,.
sales and sensational dcliness in all
futures. Privated reports from Liver
pool to the effect that the bull leaders
were liquidating stirred up selling-or
ders in all parts of the cotton world
and futures on the New Orleans Ex
change opened at a wide decline only
to go still lower as trading progressed.
When the trading was over it was the
general opinion on the floor that the
bull campaign in the summer months
bad been abandoned, August, tbe
most active old crop month lost -48
points at its lowest, or nearly half a
cent, a pound. This represented an
enormous loss on the lines of long Aug
ust cotton, the bulls are supposed to
own.
The new crop months were hot as
weak as August, although at their low
est were $1,65 a bale cheaper than on
yes'erday'a close. Tbe general opron
ion was that leading bull interests
materially lightened their load during
the day. One brokerage firm that do.?s a
large business for certain New York
traders was a heavy seller at times,
This was supposed to be liquidation.

Whole Country May Be Called
Upon To Help Repel Asiatic
Scourge. ,
New York. July 20. -The health'of
ficers not only of New York, but of the
whole country may be asked to help
repel the threatened invasinn of Asia
tic cholera. The discovery of five
'fchilera carriers" among the 400 im
migrants undergoing bacteriological
examination at Quarantine emphasized
what Health Officer Doty has said about
the difficulty of confining the disease to
the quarantine hospitals of porta of
entry. ' - x
Dr. doty is conferring with Surgeon
General Wyman, head of the United
States marine hospital service to plan
how , the country may be protected
against "carrier" who harbor the
germs, while themselves freo from their
ill effects.
A system of general observation is
contemplated, bo that even after the
'arrier" ia released from quarantime
the health authorities of the place
I where he settles m iy watch for possi
ble transmission or the disease.
The case of these cholera carriers
presents a puzzle. ' '
As yet the health authorities have
not decided how soon it will be safe to
permit them to be at largo. Only the
careful system of bacteriological ex
amination put into effect here when
cholera appeared could, it is said, have
detected the presence of cholera germs
in these apparently healthy persons.
The following bulletin relating to the
cholera situation was given out at
Quarantine at 9 a. m. ,
.- "At Hoffmau Island early this morn
ing Domenico R incitell, aged 63 years.
one of tha steerage passenger of the
steamer Moltke, was taken with symp
toms suspicious of cholera. At the Swin-
burne Island Hospital no further deaths
have occurred. On board the Anchor
I Line stetmer Perugia conditions are
satisfactory.
London, July 20.-According to fig
ures received in this city the deaths
fro n tha plague in India have reached
thomormous total of 650v690 for the
half year ended on June 30.
The disease has taken such a hold on
that country that its tavages are little

PUBLICITY BILL
Provisions So Sweeping as Virtual- '
ly to Make New . Measure a '
. . Corrupt Practices Act.
' Washington, July 19--Th most prat
tic campaign publicity hill ever propoa -
ed by either branch of Congress has
passed the Senate. Tbe measure pas
sed by the House was amended in such
form as .virtually to make it a corrupt
practices act Its provisions were mada ,
so sweeping that any Republicans
and Democrats protested against them.
The bill requires the publication of .
campaign contributions both before and . -'
after any election. This applies to
State primaries and candidates for the v
Senate and for Representatives are in
eluded. Tnree ante-electious , state--1 .,
menta must be filed. The record must
contain not only itemized' accounts of
funds, but of all legitimate expenses
and all promises, made either by the
candidate or for him. . ,
The expenditures of candidates to
secure an election are limited to 10
cents for each voter in a State, the ag- . -gregate
not to exceed $10,000 for a
Senator and $5,000 for a Representa- v
live It is stipulated that ' this provis- '
ion must not interfere with any limita
tions imposed by the States. The re- j -gistering
of statements in the mails,
with postage properly affixed and other :
precautions taken on the final day for -sending
them in, will be accepted at
fulfilment of the law. , ; ',
The debate preceding the passage of
the bill was spirited and varied.
It was declared by Senator Heyburn
tha bill gave legislative license for the
enormous ' expenditure of money in
elections. He accused the Senate of
seeking to defame itself,'.

that honest men must suffer because of
stringent regulations necessary to re- .
strain dishonest men; He said corrup
tion exists and it must be eliminated, -even
if humiliation and inconvenience
are required. ' !,:- .- ': -: . '
The full publicity provided for pri-.
maries in some States did not deter men
from spending great sums in further
ing their elections, said Senator, Reed.
In Wisconsin, he said, the successful
candidate expendt d $107,000, or $2 for .
