BASIS OF JAPANESE LOANS
Resources of Country and Security foe
The loans that have been issued'
are based upon two thfhgs; the re-
sources of the country, upon which is
founded the ability of the government
to pay, and the security offered for
regular payment of the interest. The
two foreign loans already placed have
their interest secured by the custom
receipts and the tobacco monopoly,
both assets liable to fluctations. But
on their face the bankers in London
and New York have apparently thought
them sufficient guarantee for the
amount of interest involved, the se-
curity for the principal heing the
national credit. Would they have
been accepted as a guarantee, how-
ever, for ten times the amount? Most
certainly not. Therefore, had ten
times the amount been offered instead
of it all being taken, none would have
been taken at all. Again it must be
remembered that bankers have not
been the real takers of these loans.
The bulk of the money has come from
individual Englishmen and Americans
who in view of reputable banking
firms under-writing the loans, accept-
ed them as a good investment at the
market price, which nets about 8 per

It is a mistake to assume that phy-
sicians are always skeptical as to the
curative properties of anything else
indeed, the best doctors are those
who seek to heal with as little use
of drugs as possible and by the use
of correct food and drink. A physi-
cian writes from Calif, to tell how he
made a well man of himself with
"Before I came from Europe, where
I was born," he says, "it was my cus-
tom to take coffee with milk (cafe an
lait) with my morning meal, a small
cup (cafe noir) after my dinner and
two or three additional small cups at
my club during the evening.
"In time nervous symptoms devel-
oped, with pains in the cardiac region,
and accompanied by great depression
of spirits, despondency—in brief, "the
blues!" I at first tried medicines,
but got no relief ami at last realized
that all my troubles were caused by
coffee. I thereupon quit its use forth-
with, substituting English Breakfast
"The tea seemed to help me at first,
but in time the old distressing symp-
toms returned, and I quit it also, and
tried to use milk for my table bev-
erage. This I was compelled however
to abandon speedily, for, while it re-
lieved the nervousness soir.ewnat, it
brought on constipation. Then by. a
happy inspiration I was led to try tta
Postum Food Coffee. This was some
month! ago and I still use it. 1 an.
no longer nervous, nor do I suffer
from the pains about the heart, while
my 'blues' have left me and life Is
bright to me once more. I know that
leaving off coffee and using Postum
healed me, and I make it a rule to
advise my patients to use it." Name

In 1791 John Suter was mine host
at the tavern, and here Gen. Washing-
ton and Mr. Jefferson on numerous
occasions refreshed themselves. Tra-
dition says that Suter imported his
whisky from his native Scotland, his
rum from Jamaica and his brandy
from the London docks. Thomas Jef-
ferson, who while minister to France
visited the wine countries of Europe
and made a selection for his own cel-
lar, is said to have declared: "No
man on the Atlantic coast could bring
out a better bottle of Madeira or
sherry than old Suter." The present
buildings do not show the original
porch and a story of stuccoed brick
has been inserted under the original
house to connect it with the changed
Suter's Tavern is particularly
noted, however, as a place where the
commissioners who laid out Washing
ton city met frequently. These com-
missioners were Thomas Johnson, the
chairman, and Chief Justice of Mary-
land. Daniel Carroll of Duddington,
and brother of Archbishtop Carroll,
and Dr. David Stuart, the family
physician of the president.
Under the date of March, 1791, Gen
Washington notes in his diary: "Left
Bladensburg at. half past 6 and break-
fasted at Georgetown about 8, where,
having appointed the commissioners
under the residence law, to meet me,
I found Mr. Thomas Johnson, one oi
them (and who is now chief justice
of the state), in waiting, and soon
after enrae in David Stuart and Daniei
Carroll, Esq?., and others, too. A few
miles out of town I was met by the
citizens of the place and escorte<l in
by them, dined at Suter's Tavern,
where I also lodged, had a pnblic din-
ner given by the mayor and corpora-
tions, previous to which I examined

been sent on to lay out the district of
ten miles square for the Federal City;

had been engaged to make a draft of

town and Carrollsburg, on the Eastern

Suter's Tavern, and there was many

upon the history of that day and

City, now Washington, the capital of
the greatest nation on earth.—Wasb

GOOD BLOOD FOR BAD
Rheumatism and Other Blood Dis-
eases are Cured by Dr. Williams'
"In the lead mines I was at work on ray\
knees with my elbows pressed against
rock walls, in dampness and extremes of
cold," saiel Mr. J. G. Meukel, of 2975
Jackson avenue, Dubuque, Iowa, in de-
scribing his experience to a reporter,
"and it is not surprising that I con-
tracted rheumatism. For three years I
had attacks affecting the joints of my
ankles, knees and elbows. My ankles
and knees became so swollen I could
scarcely walk on uneven ground and a
little pressure from a stone under my
feet would cause me so much pain that I
would nearly sink down. I was often
obliged to lie in bed for several days at a
time. My friends who were similariy
troubled were getting no relief front
doctors and I did not feel encouraged to
throw money away for nothing. By
chance I read the story of Robert Yates,
of the Kiauer Manufacturing Co., of
Dubuque, who had a very bad case of
rheumatism. I decided to try Dr. Wil-
liams' Pitik Pills for Pale People, the
remedy he had used. In three or four
weeks after beginning to use the pills, I
was much better and in three months I
was well. The swelling of the joints
and the tenderness disappeared, I could
work steadily and for eight years I have
had no return of the trouble. My whole
family believe in Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. Both my sons use them. We
consider them a household remedy that
we are sure about."
What Dr.Williams' Pink Pills did for
Mr. Meukel they are doing for hundreds
of others. Every dose sends galloping
through the veins, pure, strong, rich, red
blood that strikes straight at the cause of
nil ill health. The new blood restores
regularity, and braces all the organs for
their special tasks. Get the genuine Dr.

cine Co , bclicucytady, N.Y.
