' Rheumatic Tortiiree Cease Whe Dr.
Williams' Pink Pill Make
New BtooC "
The first sign of rheumatism is fre
snently a pain and swelling in due of
the joints. . If not combated in the
blood, which is die meat of the disease,
the poison' spreads, affecting other joints
and tisanes. Sometimes rheumatism at
tacks the heart and is quickly fatal.
The one remedy that has cured
rheumatism so that it stays cured is Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. These pills expel
the poison from the blood and restore
the system, so that the poisonous matter
is passed off as nature intended.
Mrs. L T. Pitcher, of No. 190 Mon
mouth street, Newark, N. J., suffered
for about three years from rheumatism
before she found this cure. She says:
"It began with a queer feeling in my
angers. In a little time it seemed as
though the finger joints had lumps on
them and I could not get my gloves on.
"Then it grew worse and spread to
way knees. I could not stand up and I
could not sleep nights. My suffering
was moe than I can describe. I took a
great deal of medicine, but nothing even
gave me relief until I tried Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills.
" I read an account of a cure in a case
that was exactly like mine and my hus
band got me some of the pills. I took
them for three weeks before I really f elc
better but they finally cured me. "
Mr. Pitcher, who is a veteran and a
member of E. D. Morgan Post, No. 807
of New York, substantiates his wife's
statement and, says that she now walks
without difficulty, whereas a year ago
he was compelled to push her about in a
wheeled chair. Both Mr. and Mrs.
Pitcher are enthusiastic in their praise
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

A Good Heart
A good heart makes a good face
perhaps not beautiful or classic, but
-fine, sincere and noble. The face will
shine with od behind it There are
some faces that are quiet even today
that at times seem to have a glow
upon them. There are faces that are
quiet and uninteresting In repose that
light up amazingly with the animation
of talking. There are some who can
never get a good photograph, because
the camera cannot catch the subtle
sparkle of the eye, in which the whole
individuality lies. There are some
whom you would not at first call hand
some, whose faces grow on you with
the constant acquaintance until they
become beautiful to you. For you see
the soul shining; you see the splendor
of a noble character glorifying every
feature. A true beauty in the soul
will come out in the sweetness, the
brightness, the quiet glory of the
Real Elixir of Life.
Contentment is the real elixir of
life. It is the real fountain from
which flows the waters of perennial
youth: Sometimes it costs an effort, a
tremendous effort, to say it is all right
but the man or woman who can say it
Is1 much better off for thus looking at
the sunny side of the world than the
person who harbors grievances against
all mankind and walks through the
world burdened with the somber
thoughts of his disappointments. The
discontented perhaps never stop to
think how much worse off they could
be; that no matter how few their
pleasures, there are those in the world
who have few or none at all; that
given health and strength and the full
possession of the senses, they are ad
advantaged and blessed in the race of
A- Mighty Good Sort of Neighbor t
"A little widow, a neighbor of mine,
persuaded me to try Grape-Nuts when
my stomach was so weak that it
would not retain food of any other
kind.' writes a grateful woman, from
San Bernardino Co., Cal.
"I had been ill and confined to my
bed with fever and nervous prostra
tion for three long months after the
birth of my second boy. We were in
despair until the little widow's advice
brought relief.
"I liked Grape-Nuts food from the
beginning, and In an incredibly short
time it gave me such strength that 1
was able to leave my bed and enjoy
my three good meals a day. In two
months my weight increased from 95
to 113 pounds, my nerves had steadied
down and I felt ready for anything.
My neighbors were amazed to see me
gain so rapidly and still more so
when they heard that Grape-Nuts
alone had brought the change.
"My 4-year-old boy had eczema,
very bad,. last spring and lost his ap
petite entirely, which made him cross
and peevish. I pi't him on a diet of
Grape-Nuts, which he relished at once.
He improved from the beginning, the
eczema disappeared and now he is
fat and rosy, with, a delightfully soft
clear skin. The Grape-Nuts diet did
it I will willingly answer all in
quiries."' Name given by Postum Co.,

Furnish Ideal Power for High Speed
at Sea.
The good ship that recently crossed
the stormy brine on its maiden voy
age from Liverpool to New York is
the pioner in a new era of transatlan
tic steam navigation. Its engine was
a turbine. The word turbine comes
from the Italian turbo, meaning whirl
wind or revolving, explaining the ac
tion of the steam in the turbine en
gine. The draft, the drum and the
projectng blades or valves are blown
around at great speed with smooth
and even motion and with a total ab
sence of the vibration which is pres
ent "even in the highest types and
most perfectly balanced engines of
the reciprocating variety. The speed
attained was 20 knots, but in the
new great flyers now building twenty
five knots is to be attained. With re
ciprocating engines as power it Is
thought the size and speed of steam
ships has been reached, since there is
a limit to the strength of hulls. But
turbine engines, small, simple and
compact entirely free from vibra
tions, capable of developing far great
er horsepower, have been termed the
ideal power for high speed at sea.
Death of Last Man Who Graduated
With Chancellor.
The last of the nineteen classmates
of Bismarck who graduated with him
from the gymnasium in Berlin In the
spring of 1832 has just died in that
city. A simple clergyman, Von Han
stein by name, he gave shortly be
fore his death an eloquent description
of Bismarck the boy "happy, buoy
ant, able and popular." Sixty-three
years after their graduation the five
other survivors recalled themselves to
their distinguished classmate by a
round robin headed by Von Hanstein
which reached Bismarck on his birth
day, April 1, and received a tele
graphic acknowledgment before all
the other messages which poured in
on him. Curiously enough, Von Han
stein by common consent was made
custodian of the longer reply which
Bismarck sent, as if with knowledge
that he would survive the others and
Bismarck; too.

Suspicion That Officers Are Incom
petent or Negligent
Popular judgment will be suspended
until a naval court of inquiry shall
have placed the responsibility for the
mishap that overtook Admiral Evans'
battleship squadron while making its
way out of New York harbor. A pilot
was aboard the flagship and the
others were following In close forma
tion. The pilot knew his business, for
his vessel went through unscathed,
and it remains to be seen why the
four others could not follow their
leader. A long and continuous list of
accidents to naval vessels, any one of
which would have ended the career
of a captain in the merchant service,
more than suggests that too many
naval officers are' Incompetent or neg
ligent and that these frequent evi
dences of shortcomings come to pub
lic notice so often because proper ex

Bad Spelling.
Bad spelling. Says Benjamin Frank
lin in one of his letters, is generally
the best, as conforming to the sounds
of the letters and words. To give you
an Instance. A gentleman received a
letter in which were these words:
"Not finding Brown at hom, I delivered
your meseg to his yf." The gentleman,
finding it bad spelling and, therefore,
not very intelligible, called his lady to
help him to read it. Between them
they picked out the meaning of all but
the yf, which they could not under
stand. The lady proposed to call her
chambermaid, because "Betty," says
she "ha the best knack of reading
bad spelling of any one I know." Betty
was surprised that they could not tell
who yf was . "Why," says she, "yf
spells wife, what else can it spell?"
Knew Better Than Before
One day recently, says the Roman
correspondent of the London Tablet,
Cardinal Macchi administered solemn
baptism, in the chapel of the little
Company of Mary, to a sturdy little
American convert of eleven years.
His mother did her best to argue him
