Deafness Ilisslnsr Sounds In Head Stomach
Disorder Palpitation of Heart and
Debility Overcomo nt JLast
Mr Newman certainly had a very
tough time with the grip and it is no
wonder that lie thinks that the remedy
that cured him cant bo beat Hia case
shows how profoundly grin poisons tho
system msd how obstinately it resists all
ordinary efforts to eradicate it
Few cases can bo worse than Mr New
m ans for ho had head heart and stom
ach troubles combined with great weak
ness Ho recently said
Tho attack of grip which I had eight
years ago left mo in a very bad fix I
became nearly deaf and myhead ached
continually and was filled with hissing
aud roaring sounds My heart fluttered
and had regular ruuuing away spells
My stomach was so sore that I could
hardly bear a touch on that part of my
body I had a great deal of pain in tho
region of my liver and tho doctor said
that organ was enlarged My kidneys
ached so at times that I could hardly
Didnt you givo np and go to bed
ho was asked
No I simply wouldnt My head
and my back ached dreadfully but I
obstinately dragged myself about kept
growing worse nnd finally ran down to
almost nothing
What did you do to get relief
First I tried a doctor but ho did me
no good Then I took all kinds of ad
vertised preparations but nothing proved
helpful nntill began to nso Dr Williams
Pink Pills As soon as I got them I
knew that I had at last hit the right
remedy for my case The very first bos
did more for me than anything else I
had ever taken They gave me relief
right away and in three months they
positively cured me I think I was
scarcely ever in better health in my life
than I am at present
Mr William A Newman is a well
known Camden county farmer living at
Sagrada Missouri His case was a se
vere test for any remedy but Dr Wil
liams Pink Pills met every requirement
Other remedies merely drive the poison
of the grip into hiding but Dr Williams
Pink Pills drive it out of tho system
They are sold by every druggistr

served together in the Philippines and
were firm friends

The Sum of 10000000 to a Worthy
NEW YORK A gift of 10000000
by Andrew Carnegie to provide an
nuities for college professors who are
not able to continue in active service
was announced by Frank A Vander
lip vice president of the National City
bank of New York Professors in the
United States Canada and Newfound
land will share in the distribution of
the income of the fund United States
Steel corporation 5 per cent first
mortgage bonds for 10000000 have
been transferred to a board of
trustees and steps will be taken at
once to organize a corporation to re
ceive the donation Dr Pritchett
president of the Massachusetts Insti
tute of Technology and Mr Vanderlip
have been selected by Mr Carnegie
to obtain data on the subject to be
presented at the first meeting of the
board of trustees which will take
place on November 15
Mr Carnegies letter to the trustees
is dated April 10 and is as follows
I have reached the conclusion that
the least rewarded of all the profes
sions is that of the teacher in our
higher educational institutions New
York City generally and wisely pro
vides retiring pensions for teachers in
her public schools and also for a po
liceman Few indeed of our colleges
are able to do so The consequences
are grievous Able men hesitate to
adopt teaching as a career and many
old professors whose places should be
occupied by younger men cannot be
I have therefore transferred to
you and your successors as trustees
10000000 5 per cent first mortgage
bonds of the United States Steel cor
poration the revenue from which is
to provide retiring pensions for the
teachers of universities colleges and
technical schools in our own country
Canada and Newfoundland under such
conditions as you may adopt from
time to time Expert calculations show
that the revenue will be ample for
the purpose
Federal Court Res trains Strikers From
Interfering with Employers Teams
CHICAGO For the first time since
the strike of the American Railway
union in 1894 the government of the
United States has been made a party
to the labor troubles in this city The
government was brought into the
teamsters strike by the issuance of
an injunction by Judge C C Kholsaat
of the United States circuit court The
writ was asked on behalf of the Em
ployers Teaming company on the
grounds that the organization is in
corporated under the laws of West
Virginia and is therefore under the
protection of the federal court The
order commands that all defendants
refrain from any interference with
the business of the Employers Team
ing company and commands the strik
ers to refrain from picketing massing
on the streets with intent to inter
fere with the wagons of the complain
ant and from interfering in any man
ner with non union men in its employ
As soon as issued copies of the in
junction were printed in large cards
and two of these were attached to
every wagon of the Employers Team
ing company which went upon the
streets The injunction exerted a pa
cifying influence and there was less
rioting in the streets than Thursday
A thunderstorm which continued dur
ing the latter part of the afternoon
and through the evening also lent ma
terial assistance in keeping the
streets clear

ginias foremost sons died at the
Providence hospital here Friday night
from an attack of apoplexy which ho
suffered early in the morning on a
train while en route from Boston to

been removed to the hospital It was
evident to the physicians that his case
was a very serious one but they
hoped that his vitality and will power
would assist materially in -a partial
recovery at least from the attack His
condition remained fair considering
the severity of the attack during the
day but shortly after 9 oclock he be
gan to grow weaker his breathing be
came more rapid and his pulse lower
terminating in less than two hours in

out pain the general remaining con

Lee who came into the room for a
In the room when he died were Dr
Montgomery one of tho physicians at
the hospital Mrs Dorsey a relative
and a nurse two of the attending
physicians Drs Edie and Kean hav
ing retired temporarily A pathetic
feature of the case is that although

ily consisting of a wife and five chil
dren not one of them were with him
at the time of his death The general
was GS years of age
General Lee was conscious through
out the day and recognized those who
were about the sick room Necessar
ily these were very few persons and

nurses and several relatives avIio came
to visit him While not suffering any
pain the general was rather uncom
fortable most of the time his breath
ing being difficult and his articula

were issued directing him to sail with

by the numerous inquiries made dur
ing the day and evening His heart
and soul has been in the work of the
Jamestown exposition and he labored
zealously to make it a success
