Doing Great Work.
Ward , Ark. , March (5th. ( Special. )
From all over the West reports come
of cures of different forms of Kidney
Disease by JDodd's Kidney Pills and
this place'is not without evidence of
the great work the Great American
Kidney Remedy is doing.
Among rl e cured here is Mr. J. V.
Waggoner , a well known citizen , who ,
in an interview , says : "Dodcl's Kid
ney Pills nave done wonders for me.
My kidneys and bladder were badly
out of order. I used many medicines
but got nothing to cure me till I tried
Dodd's Kidney Pills. Two boxes of
them fixed me up so that I have been
well ever since. "
"Tell the poor kidney and bladder
diseased people to take Dodd's Kidney
Pills and get well. "
No case of kidney complaint is too
far gone for Dodd's Kidney Pills to
cure. They are the only remedy that
has ever cured Bright's Disease.

Timely Advice.
When the financial panic of 1S93
broke out , the senior editor of a trade
journal published in the interests of
business men and financiers was on a
visit to a mining town In the fur
West Fearful lest his junior , in the
office at home , might give editorial ut
terance to pessimistic views and weak
en public'confidence still further , he
hastened to a telegraph office and de
spatched a brief message of advice.
It happened that the junior partner
on this particular day had just be
come the father of a pair of fine twin
boj'.s. While his friends in the office
( were congratulating him upon this
event , a messenger entered with a
telegram. He opened it , and read the
following message from the senior
partner :
"Dear George Things look blue , but
they will brighten up soon. Take a
cheerful view of the situation. Hi
ram. "
To Supplement Our Civilzation.
As a result of observation and re

three things above all others to sup

was neuralgia and indigestion.
"One day I took a drive with my
husband three miles in the country and
I drank a cup of coffee for dinner. I
thought sure 1 would die before I got
"back to town to a doctor. I was drawn
double in the buggy and when my hus
band hidied ! the horse to get me out
into the doctor's office , misery came up
in my throat and seemed to shut my
breath off entirely , then left all in a
flash and went to my heart. The doc

weak I could not sit up.
"My husband brought my supper to
my bedside with a nice cup of hot
coffee , but I said : 'Take that back ,

and said :
" 'The idea of coffee killing any

" 'Well , ' I said , 'it is nothing else
but coffee thai is doing it. '

fice with impressive solemnity as he
stood before the white-haired Chief
Justice on the Capitol plaza Saturday
afternoon , and then reverently kissed
the Bible opened before him. That
was the final act of the making of a
President , after the people had ex
pressed their will at the polls more
than four months before , and the elec
toral college had declared the will of
the people in Congress three months
later. There were intermediate steps
and many formalities , but this simple
act of the taking of the oath to pre
serve , protect and defend the consti
tution of the United States was the
I culminating act by which Theodore
Roosevelt placed the crown of autlior-
i ity upon his head and became the chief
' executive of over 7G,000uuU people.
It falls to comparatively few people
to behold such a spectacle as that
which those on the plaza saw before
them ns the President took the oath
of office. In front , acres and acres of

The most imposing , if not impres
sive , portion of the inaugural ceremo
nies undoubtedly took place in the
United States Senate chamber , and
was witnessed by 2,000 people. This
was the swearing in of the new Viee-
President and the inauguration of the
Senate for another term of Congress.
These ceremonies were very simple in
themselves , but the formality with
which they were invested , their excl3-
sivcness and the gathering of distin
guished men made it an occasion of
peculiar interest.
There were gathered all that is con
sidered great in a republic. There were
the representatives of the highest leg
islative bodies in the world , the Sen
ate and House of Representatives of
the United States ; there was the high
est tribunal in the world , the Supreme
Court of the United States ; there were
men who would hold the highest elec
tive offices in the world , the President
and Vice President of the United
States of America.
In addition there were the represen
tatives of every civilized government
the public is but little interested in ,
because a limited number can see
them. But the parade is for all. Many
saw it from the stands which were
erected along Pennsylvania avenue , on
which seats could be obtained at from
$1 to $25 each. These stands were so
numerous that a temporary sawmill
was built opposite the White House to
provide the lumber for them. One of
them had a seating capacity of 6,000.
But those who occupied seats on the
stands and in the windows were a
small number compared to the thous
ands who lined the curbs , and shouted
themselves hoarse. They had much
to look upon. Washington has seen
many splendid parades , but no such
variety of uniforms ever appeared on
the streets as was seen this year.
General O. 0. Howard and staff rode
at the head. Next came Squadron A ,
of New York , followed by the Presi
dential party and the escort of Rough
Riders. Then followed the military
companies , including regulars , militia
and independent companies. There
was similarity of uniform in the mill-

This year's inauguration day was
perhaps the most notable and spectac
ular event of its kind in the history of
the nation. The popularity of Presi
dent Roosevelt was expressed at the
polls ; it was demonstrated in pictur-
esqueness and enthusiasm in connec
tion with his taking the oath of office.
It seemed fitting that a record-break
ing President should have a record-
breaking inauguration. In splendor it
eclipsed the best of the past and the
crowds were larger than ever before.
Every estimate placed the number of
visitors above 200,000. The highest
previous record is 130,000. The capac
ity of Washington to entertain a crowd
was taxed to the limit , and some
had to pay dear for their entertain
ment. Some rooms brought $40 for
the day.
on the face of the earth gathered to do
honor to the administration of the
United States. There were also gath
ered wealth , beauty and brains of the
country in the gallery. Distinguished
and noted men and women endured the
crush of the crowded corridors to be
present at this national event.
Outside the crowds surged around
the capital and filled the great avenue
loading thereto. Outside there was
cheering incessant over the statesmen
who passed and the military and civic
organizations that gathered , but in
side the capitol , beneath the { Treat
dome , there was an impressive silence

monotony was broken by the scarlet ,
gold , white , blue and buff of the inde
pendent companies. There were cadets
and midshipmen , the latter to the
number of TOO comprising the battal
ion from Annapolis. There were Fili
pinos and Porto Ricans in the uniform
of Uncle Sam.
The non-military section , comprising
campaign clubs and organizations
made up specially for this occasion ,
were headed by a band of To pieces ,
followed by the Conkling Uncomlition-

The inaugural ball was the leading
social event. It was briefer than usual
for it had to stop at midnight. The
fioral work was on a more elaborate
scale than ever before , and resulted in
making the ball as important , inter
esting and altogether enjoyable an
event as the muchly advertised parade.
Royal palms , with leaves 25 feet long ,
were brought up from Porto Rico and
challenged the orchids and roses and
smilax and ferns for the attention and
admiration of the multitude. On the
upper balcony of the interior court
were placed evergreen trees 20 feet
high and everywhere there was a trac
ery of greens , illuminated by tiny elec
tric light bulbs , of one caudle power
Overhead , instead of a canopy effect ,
the artists endeavored to imitate a
beautiful Italian sky. The color scheme
was bright on the first floor , to add
as much as possible to the effect of
brilliancy. The color was softened as
the decorators worked upward , until
by degrees it gave an open-air effect at
the top.
All along the balconies were strips
of laurel , caught up with wreaths. In
front of the first balcony , at the top
of the columns , Avere placed large
placques of azalias and other brilliant
flowers , with vines and greens radiat
ing therefrom. Here and there were
pendant baskets of ferns.
The Obligation Wiiich Mr. Roosevelt
Took Saturday.
The oath of ollice taken by the in
coming President of the United States
is the shortest and the simplest required
of any ruler on earth. It is prescribed
by the Constitution , and is as follows :
"I do solemnly swear ( or allirm ) that
I will faithfully execute the office of
President of the United States , and , to
the best of my ability , protect , preserve
and defend the Constitution of the United
States. "
This oath is slowly repeated by the
President-elect after the chief justice of
the Supreme Court , in the presence of
the public , upon a platform erected in
front of the main door on the eastern
side of the capitol. After the President
has taken the oath he delivers his inau
gural address. While the oath is being
repeated the President-elect and the chief
justice face each other and hold with
their right hands , between them , a Bible ,
furnished by some person interested or
especially procured for the occasion ,
becomes the property of the President
after it has been appropriately inscribed
and sealed by the chief clerk of the Su
preme Court. President Cleveland , at
both inaugurations , took the oath upon
a little red pocket Bible which was given
him by his mother when he left home as
a boy. President Harrison used a Bible
that had boon presented to him by a
Sunday school class iu Indianapolis.
At the close of the oath the President
elect bows his head and kisses the open
page of the book , and it has been cus
tomary for him or for his wife or a
friend to select some appropriate pas-
sago at which the book shall he opened
nnrl the verse upon which he shall press
his lips. Sometimes , when those inter
ested forsret or neglect to choose a pas
sage , the Bible is opened , at random , but
the clerk of the Supreme Court is al
ways careful to note and mark the ex
act place where the lips touched the page.

Woman Afflicted for Years by
Spells of Numbness
Jfucovers Perfect Health.
"When she was fourteen years old , Mrs ,
Ida L. Brown had St. Vitus' dance.
She finally got over the most noticeable
features of the strange ailment , but was
still troubled by very uncomfortable feen-
sations , which sue recently described as
follows :
" One hand , half of my face , and half
of my tongue would get cold and numb.
These feelings would come on , last for
about ten minutes , and then go away ,
several times u day. Besides I would
have palpitation of the heart , and my
strength would get so low that I could
hardly breathe. As time went on these
spt-lls kept coming oftener and growing
worse. The numbness would sometimes
extend over half my bod } * . "
"How did you get rid of them ? "
"It seemed for a long time as if I never
could get rid of them. It was not until
about six years ago that I found a remedy
that had virtue enough in it to reach my
case. That was Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale People , and they have since en
tirely cured me. "
" Did it take long to effect a cure ? "
"No ! I hadn't taken the whole of the
first box before I saw a great improve
ment. So I kept on using them , growing
better all the time.until I had taken eight
boxes and then I was perfectly well , and
I have remained in good health ever
since with one exception. "
"What was that ? "
" Oh ! that was when I had the grip.
1 was in bed , under the doctor's care ,
for two weeks. When I got up I had
dreadful attacks of dizziness. I had to
grasp hold of something or I would fall
right down. I was just miserable , and
when I saw the doctor was not helping
me , I began to take Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills again. In a short time they cured
me of that trouble too , and I have never
had any dizzy spells since. "

His Apostolic Majesty.
The title of "apostolic majesty" is
borne by the Emperor of Austria as
King of Hungary.
Hungary was ruled by dukes from
its conquest by the Magyars to the
year 1000 , the regal title being as
sumed first by Vaik , whose education
had been intrusted by his father , Gey-
za , who had married a Christian prin
cess , to Adalbert , bishop of Prague.
On succeeding his father Vaik em
braced and established Christianity ,
applied for and received from Pope
Sylvester II. the title of "apostolic
king , " was crowned as Stephen I. and
afterward known as St. Stephen.
The title was renewed by Clement
XII. in ITHS and , though abolished in
1S4S , was reassumed as "apostolic
majesty" in JSfil and restricted in
1SGS to the Austrian emperor in his
character as king of Hungary. The
privilege of being preceded by a cross
bearer was granted with the original
title. London Standard.

to a professor of ethnology some of his
