JHE SIXTIETH G0N6RESS
A Condensed Account of Transac-
I tions at the National Capital.
The Most Important Item* Gathered
From Each Day'a Session of
Senate and House.
Make Banks Pay Cash.
Washington.—It was decided late
Monday that the senate committee on
finance would hold no more meetings
for the consideration of the Aldrich
financial bill until after the arrival of
the mass of financial data which has
been requested from the treasury de-
partment. Except in a few particulars
the bill is thought to be in the shape
In which it will be reported. The
treasury department figures, however,
may be the means of settling certain
contentions in the minds of some of
the members and the data will there-
fore be awaited.
It fe likely that the Aldrich bill will
be amended in such manner as to re-
quire banks taking advantage of the
opportunity to increase their circula-
tion to cash checks and other obli-
gations with currency when it is de-
manded, or go into the hands of a re-
Cortelyou Heard From.
Washington.—Just before the sen
ate adjourned Monday Senator Aid
rich received a letter from Secretary
Cortelyou explaining the delay In re-
plying to the resolution calling on him
for information concerning the recent
Panama canal bond sale and the let-
ter was laid before the senate. Earlier
In the day Senator Tillman indulged
in caustic comment upon what he
characterized as the secretary's ap
parent "disobedience" to a senate
resolution. The secretary stated that
possibly he might have the informa-
tion ready by the first of next week.
Not a Responsible Bidder.
Washington.—The reply of coun-
sel for the government In the suit
of George W. Austin to restrain the
secretary of the treasury from issuing
Panama canal bonds was filed Friday
in the supreme court of the district.
On Monday the court will announce Its
decision. The reply alleges that the
complainant is absolutely unable to
fulfill his obligation to purchase |3.-
000,000 of the bonds and that he is
wholly without financial responsibility
adequate to such an obligation.
To Prevent Fake Advertising.
Washington—Among the bills and
resolutions introduced in the house
Monday was one by Mr. Coudrey of
Missouri, prohibiting the Issuing and
circulating of pernicious or fraudulent
advertisements, among which are
classed advertisements of fire sales,
bankruptcy sales, bargain sales, exag-
gerated or false representations of
values or qualities, guarantees of cer-
tain profits, patent medicines, clalrvoy-
To Prevent Statistical Leaks.
Washington—At the close of a day
of excitement in the house of repre-
sentatives an amendment was added
to the penal code bill, making it a
criminal offense for any officer or em-
ploye of the government to Rive out
advance information regarding any
crop statistics authorised by law to
Extradition Treaty With Spain.
Washington.—The senate Thursday
ratified and made public a treaty be
tween the United States and Spain
wherein it is agreed that Spain shall
upon requisition, deliver up to justlc<
persons charged with any of a list of
certain crimes ranging from murdn
to slave trading.
Increased Officers' Pay.
Washington —The senate committee
on commerce Thursday considered the
revenue cutter service personnel
which reorganizes the service and ln^
crenseB the pny and rate of soma ol
the higher officers and ordered a fa
vorable report upon It.
Confirmed Porto Rican Nominations.
Washington.—The nomination of
Resale L. Post to be governor of Porto
Rico was Thursday confirmed by the
senate, as were all the other Torto
Rlcan territorial nominations.

Ths Experience of Mr. Woods la tha
Experience of Thousands of Others.
Bernard P. Woods of Jackson street,
Lonaconing, Md., says: "Hard work

neys. I was tired

NO BLESSING FOR HER.
REMINDED HIM OF HOME.
Disappointed Youngster Discriminated
in His Prayer.
For several weeks, little Ralph had
enjoyed the use of a Shetland pony,
the property of a horse dealer who
was a friend of the family. But much
to Ralph's sorrow, there came a day
recently when the pony was sold, and
the delightful horseback rides came
to a sudden end. The purchaser, as
Ralph found out by inquiry, was a
little girl of about his own mature
age of five. Ever since his acquaint-
ance with the pony began, Ralph had
included him in his bedtime prayer,
and "God bless the pony," was an
earnest nightly petition. The first
evening after the sale of the pony,
Ralph hesitated when he reached his
pet's place in the prayer. Then, after
a moment's thought, he continued:
"Please, God, bless the pony Just
the same; but, God, don't you bless
the little girl what's got the pony."
ITCHING HUMOR ON BOY
Now Yorker Saw Beauty In Sign,
Where Maiden Lady Could Not.
A party of tourists was being shown
around Ciudad Juarez, the little Mexi-
can town Just across the Rio Grande
from El Paso, Texas. Every one was
delighted with its picturesqueness,
and in particular a maiden lady, who
went into raptures about each new
"It Is all so quaint." she said. "THese
adobe houses, the old church, the nar-
row streets, the little plaza, those
dreadful-looking men wearing som-
breros; everything breathes the spir-
it of an old-world civilization. It is
so different from our United States."
"That's so," assented a New York
man who had been listening. "For
instance, where in all the world could
you find anything so antique, so full
of inherent beauty, so charged, as It
were, with the essence of pure Joy, as
that sign over there." He pointed
toward a whitewashed mud house on
whose exterior was painted:
"BIGGEST BEER IN TOWN, 5c."
The woman eagerly turned to look.
Then Blie froze the horrid man with
a glance and did not speak to bim
again during the whole trip.
REV. TROUTMAN SENDS
BEST WISHES FOR PE-RU-NA

Catarrh and La Grippe.
Rev. Geo. A. E. Troutman, Mt. ^

His Hands Were a Solid Mass, and
Disease Spread All Over Body
—Cured in 4 Days By Cuticura.
"One day we noticed that our little
boy was all broken out with itching
sores. We first noticed It on his little
hands. His hands were not as bad
then, and we didn't think anything
serious would result But the next day
we heard of the Cuticura Remedies
being so good for itching sores. By
this time the disease had spread all
over his body, and his hands were
nothing but a solid mass of this Itch-
ing disease." I purchased a box of Cuti-
cura Soap and one box of Cuticura
Ointment, and that night I took the
Cuticura Soap and lukewarm water
and washed him well. Then I dried
him and took the Cuticura Ointment
and anointed him with It I did this
every evening and In four nights he
was entirely cured. Mrs. Frank Don-
ahue, 208 Fremont St., Kokomo, Ind.,
Sept. 16, 1907."
An Ancient Instance.
Belshazzar was giving his great
feast and the wine flowed like water.
"Inasmuch as I'm the whole works,"
he said, "I don't think a proclamation
by a chief of police or anybody else
Is going to stop this affair at one
o'clock a. m. or any other hour!"
No sooner had he uttered this
boast than the handwriting appeared
on the wall.
Frank If Not Complimentary.
Her brother, aged 17, had been made
captain of a high school football team
and consequently had become sudden-
ly popular with the girls In the neigh-
borhood. Because of this the man-
ager of a skating rink presented broth-
er with a season pass. Sister, who
had attained the tremendous age of
20, was truly flattered when brother
asked her, rather than some of the
younger belles of his acquaintance, to
share the privileges of that skating
rink pass. But brother's explanation
removed all danger of the Immediate
growth of sister's vanity. "You see,"
he told her with frank simplicity, "I'm
not used to Bkatlng with girls. I'll
practice on you for a month or two,
! and then when I can do it real weil
I'll ask some of the other girls."
Merely a Plain Statement.
The principal was called before the
school board. "Professor Mentor,"
said the president, "Miss Squirming
complains that she was grievously in-
sulted by Mr. Dennis, who visited her
class last Friday. What do you know
about it?" "As you are aware, gen-
tlemen," explained the principal, "Mr.
Dennis is a poor man and the father
of a very bad boy. This boy receives
deserved punishment daily. Mr. Den-
nis simply told Miss Seuirming that
he couldn't afford to have her wear
out his son's pants. It was a poor
interpretation of a just protest."
Rev. George AETroi/tman.
•'For several years I have been troubled
with a pei-uliar spasmodic affection of
the throat. It would seize me suddenly
nntl for a few minutes I would be un
able to speak audibly, and my breath
would be greatly interfered with. I
would be obliged to gasp for breath.
" 1 finally concluded that it was soma
catarrhal affection which probably ex-
cited the spasm. It interfered with my
vocation as a p oacher, attacking ma
occasionally in the pulpit.
" I had heard so much about Peruna
as a catarrh remedy that I determined
to trv it. Afler taking two bottles, my
trouble has disappeared. 1 feel sure
that Perunahas greatly benefitted mo."
Rev. P. E. Swanstrom, Swedish Map-
tist Pastor. Box '428, Grantsbnrg, Wis.,
i> writes that from the use of Peruna ha
J)j? is perfectly well, entirely cured ol
chronic diarrhea and catarrh.
I was cured of a bad ease of catarrh
when nothing else tliat I tried had any
effect My wife was cured from a
severe case ol la grippe, a ixl we feel
that the least we can do is to gratefully
acknowledge the merit of Peruna.
"My wife joins me in seuding be6t
wishes for your success."
