4 UTfftccllnttroxtst. Talk's cheap, but when it's backed up by a pledge of the hard cash of a finan cially responsible firm, or company, of world-wide rep utation for fair and honora ble dealing, it means business! Now, there are scores of sarsaparillas and other blood - purifiers, all cracked up to be the best, purest, most peculiar and wonder ful, but bear in mind (for your own sake ), there's only one guaranteed blood-purifier and remedy for torpid liver and all diseases that come from bad blood. That one —standing solita ry and alone—sold on trial/is Dr. Pierces Golden Med ical Discovery. If it don't do good in skin, scalp and scrofulous diseases —and pulmonary consump tion is only lung-scrofula— just let its makers know and get your money back. Talk's cheap, but to back a poor medicine, or a com mon one, by selling it on trial, as " Golden Medical Discovery" is sold, would bankrupt the largest fortune. Talk's cheap, but only "Discovery" is guaranteed. StOP t_J__tL»-t Chronic Co...

6 CLEVELAND OR HILL? Friends of the Former Working lp Another Boom. BOTH SIDES AFTER THE NEW YORK DELEGATION.

Special to the ReooiuvUxiow. WASH-KOTOS', May 15. — Information which comes hero by correspondence and through politicians who always keep a keen eye on the Empire State, indicates that tho friends of Cleveland are begin ning to arouse themselves and to prepare to show their power. Hill's purposes are too well-defined to leave it a matter of doubt that if they are going to control the State delegation in 1692 they must fight for it. While Hill was getting control of the machinery of New York politics, the Cleveland men saw so little to fear in his activity that there was no attempt made to prevent his getting the control he Bought, but ho was actually aid...

WON IN THE NINTH. Sacramento Loses Yesterday's Game in the Last Inning. Midget Sweeney Does the Business for the San Franciscos—Tho Game To-day. Little Danny Sweeney's hit did the business for the San Franciscos in yester day's game, and subsequently the players congratulated themselves upon the lucky manner in which they got out of a small hole and pulled victory through after them. The game was an illustration of how defeat can be turned into victory at the last stage of the battle, and when the con quering side appears to be certain it had the contest won. Yesterday's exhibition was as pretty a struggle as has been seen on the Sacra mento grounds iv a long time. It was not free from errors, but a game played with snap and life. When one club was in the lead the other was straining every point to score a run, and the coachers were yelling themselves hoarse in their almost frantic endeavors to rattle the op posing pitcher. San Francisco commenced the "fire works" in the first innin...

No pen painter who has ever lived or will ever live, has limned or can ever depict in a page or a book the beauties of tho English lake region. There never has been printed an adequate guide; and even were the best one could be made provided, the traveler who comes here to see with eyes and heart, would sutler greater from its in sullciency than find delight in its ex plorations.

THIRTY YEARS AGO. An Incident of the Cholera Scourge in the Year 1850. Tho War Spirit Hairing All Over the Country—Patriotism of a Sac ramento Miss. Allison Ballard, now a wealthy citizen of Chicago and a member ol" the Associa tion of Forty-niners of that city, was one of the early gold seekers in Cali fornia. In a recent letter to the Placer ville Democrat he relates some of his experiences in the vicinity of Sacramento during the cholera epidemic of 1850, winch are quite interesting. After de tailing his ups and downs in the mines of El Dorado, hu says: My partner's health failing him, ho concluded to go home, so I accom panied him as far as Sacramento. I hunted up my tools and got a job. I w;w soon promoted to foreman for the contractor "at £16 per day and boarded. Ready-made housos began to arrive from around the Horn.

6 ABOUT PERFUMES. The Sweet-Scented Savors of All Times. Noted Perfumes of Commerce, Art, Fashion, History nnd Romance— Distilled Odors Surrendei'ed by Turkish Roses and French Orange Blossoms. Brought are we in fancy to the Orient by the bare word "perfume," says M. C. Williams in the Con rier-Journal. It moans "through smoke," and recalls sandal and aloe wood, frankincense, myrrh and all the other precious gum's that from time immemorial have sent up fragrant clouds of Eastern song and story, nor is the suggestion a misleading one. Though the perfumer has truly the world for his parish, he would be badly off indeed without India, China, Arabia, Algiers and Turkey. He may be able to do without them alter a while. Indeed, chemistry is doing such won der work that in another hundred years we may possibly abolish nature and de pond wholly on art. Certainly much may bo expected from a science that from black, dirty, ill-smelling coal tar can give us'the delicate, penetrating sweetness ...

Standing beneath the old obelisk, just within the Flaminian gate, before him a vista of palaces, churches and variously gabled houses, all he could sco was Am paro's deep, dark fringed eyes.

ON ANOTHER TACK. The Thugs Make Two Attempts to Hold Up Cabs. Will the Trustees Wipe Ont the Dives, and Restore Peace to This Community? It is now in order for c:"l.men to go "heeled." Two of the Gurney drivers yesterday applied for and were given per mission to carry pistols for the protection oi themselves and their passengers. The {reason therefor is that tlie thugs and highwaymen have not, as some have thought, been scared out of tho city. They are still with us, and have added to gar roting, pocket-picking and attempted murder tlie novelty of standing up cabs. Between 11 and 12 o'clock on Saturday night, as a Gurney cab was being driven up X street to the residence of a promi nent county official, three roughly dressed and equally tough looking men stepped into the middle of the highway, at Fourteenth street, and endeavored to stop the vehicle. The occupant o{ the cab called out to the driver to whip up his horse, which he did, and succeeded in getting away. Shortly alter ward ...
