ENGLISH PRESS COMMENT.
Never Seriously Expected the Independ-
ence of Cubs.
New York, May 27.—English press
comments on the inauguration of the
Cuban republic provide interesting
reading, cables the London corre-
spondent of the Tribune. The expec-
tation is generally expressed that the
infant republic will at no very remote
date be absorbed into the United
States on the ground that „he islanders
had proved their unfitness to govern
themselves when they had a fair trial.
The meaning of this is that few people
here ever seriously imagined that the
independence of Cuba would become
an accomplished fact, and although
the United States is heartily congratu-
lated on the fulfillment of its pledge,
most editorials suggest that Uncle Sam
would gladly welcome any opportunity
that will give him an excuse for adding
the Pearl of the Antilles to his prop-
er t v.
Kocliamheiiu Statue 1,'n veiled.
Washington, May 27.—Amid the en-
thusiastic demonstrations of a great
concourse of people, the superb bronze
statue of General Count De Rocham-
beau, who brought the forces of France
across the sea at the hour of greatest
peril in the American revolution was
unveiled. Seldom has an event pre-
sented so many brilliant features of
military pageantry. The French tri-
colors, the Stars and Stripes, the Mar-
seillaise and the Star Spangled banner
were intermingled and French and
American soldiers fraternized.
Noted Naval Officer Killed.
New York, May 27.—Captain George
Cowie, a well-known naval officer, who
served under Admiral Farragut in the
civil war, and was chief engineer on
the battleship Indiana in the war with
Spain, has been killed at Ilahway, N.
J., by an express train. He was stand-
ing on the track waiting for a train to
clear the crossing when the express
coming from the opposite direction
ran him down.
Verdict Against an Auto.
New York, Ma}r 27.—A jury before
Justice Freedman in the supreme court
returned a verdict for $3,125 against
Edward R. Thomas, a son of General
Samuel Thomas, and in favor of Frank
II. Tliies, whose son Henry, 7 years
old, was run down and killed by Ed-
ward R. Thomas' automobile, known
as the "WhiteGhost."
Another Town Destroyed.
London, May 23.—A dispatch to the
Times from Fort de France, Martini-
que, says that a jet of fire has destroy-
ed the town of Lecarbet, on the west
coast of Martinique, and that appre-
hension is felt for the safety of troops
who were detached on a special mission
to this town.
Pardon American Prisoner*.
Havana, May 24.—A bill will be
introduced in the house of representa-
tives providing pardon for all Ameri-
cans confined in prison awaiting trial.
It is expected that the house will take
favorable action in the matter. Cuban
sentiment is strongly in favor of the

In a recent letter tov Dr. Harlman,
Congressman Botkin says:
"My Dear Doctor—It gives me pleas-
ure to certify to the excellent curative
qualities of your medicines—Perunaand
Manalin. I have been alllicted more or
less for a quarter of a century with ca-
tarrh of the stomach and constipation.
A residence in Washingtonliasincreased
these troubles. A few bottles of your
medicine have given me almost com-
plete relief, and lam sure that a contin-
uation of them will etfect a permanent
cure."—J. D. Botkin.
Mr. L F. Verdery, a prominent real
estate agent of Augusta, (la., writes:
'•I have been a great sufferer from
ca turrhai dyspepsia. I tried many phy-
sicians, visited a good many springs,
but I believe Peruna has done more
for me than all of the above put
together. I feel like a new person."
L. F. Verdery.
The most common form of summer
catarrh is catarrh of the stomach. This
is generally known as dyspepsia. Pe-
ruua cures these cases like magic.
If you do not derive prompt and satis-
factory results from the use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Ilartman, giving a
full statement of your case, and he will
be pleased to give you his valuable, ad-
