FROM FOOT TO KNEE
Ohio Woman _ Suffered Great Agony
From a Terrible Sore—Her Story of
the Case, and Her Cure.
" For many years I was afflicted with a
milk leg, and a few years ago it broke out
in a sore and spread from my foot to my
knee. I suffered great agony. It would
burn and itch all the time and discharge
a great deal. My health was good with
the exception of this sore. I tried a great
many kinds of salve, but some would
irritate the Bore so that I could hardly
stand the pain. I could not go near the
fire without suffering intensely. Someone
sent me papers containing testimonials of
cures by Hood's Harsaparilla, and I told
my husband I would like to try this med-
icine. lie got me a bottle and I found it
helped me. I kept on taking it until my
limb was completely healed. 1 cannot
praise Hood's Sarsaparilla enough for the
great benefit it has been to me. It
clcanscs the blood of all impurities and
leaves it rich and pure." MRS. Anna E.
Eaken, Whittlesey, Ohio.
You can buy Hood's Sarsaparilla of all
druggists. Be sure to get only Hood's.

Washington, July G.—The annexation of
Hawaii is now accomplished so far as xh •
legislative branch of the government i.>
Quite unexpectedly ihe resolutions pro-
viding for the annexation of the islands
were brought, to a vote in the senate la.e
this afternoon and t'hey were passed by
the decisive volI.- of 42 to 24.
Early in to-day's session of the senate
conferences of the leaders on both sides
of the chamber were held and a tactic
agreement was reached that a vote should
be taken tomorrow or Friday at the lat-
est. The opponents or annexation prac-
tically had concluded their argument.-*,
and as they had no desire to keep the sen-
ate in session by purely dilatory tactics,
they announced their willingness that
vote should be taken as soon as Mr.
White. Mr Pettlgrew and Mr. Allen had
finished their speeches.
Wither Mr. White nor Mr. Pettlgrf w
spoke at great length, - but Mr. Allen

A VOTE AT HAND.
I>t was evhlent instantly that a vote w is
at hand. The word was passed sw1ftl\
through the corridors and committ -■
| rooms, and in a few minutes every sena-
I tor at the capltol was in his seat. The
j galleries filled rapidly and members of the
house of representative, learning that .
vote was to be taken, came hurrying to
the senate side of the great marble pile to
witness proceedings that will be historic.*'
The test vote came upton an amendment
offered by Mr. White of California. It
was offered with no expectancy that .
would be adopted, but merely to place the
ideas and opinions of th • opponents of an-
nexation on record. It wa ; reject.<1 by ?
vote of 40 to 20, indicating that the annex-
ationists were strongly in the majority.
Amendment after amendment was of-
fered. but the advocates of the resolution
stood solidly together, gaining rather than
losing strength on the successive votes.
THE ROLL 13 CALLED.
Finally, at 5:30 p. m. th.- resolutions
themselves, in precisely the form in which
they were received from the "house,
reported to the senate and the roll call
began. Not a sound was to be heard m
| ihe chamber except the call of the derK
and the responses of senators. When the
vice president announced the vote by
I which th« resolutions were passed a tre-
; mendous wave of applause swept through
I the galleries, which the vice president
made no effort to check. Those who had
j advocated the resolutions expressed their
i pleasure by shaking hands with one an- ,
jothr. and on all sides evident relief was!
j shown -that the end had eomn. For a few j
! minutes so much good naturcd eonfusi n
j existed that the dignity of the senate was
I threatened, but vice president Hobart !

Without a moments warning almost, the
