t The heavy rain of Tuesday night caused
consldorrtblo damage to strcots. On Pierce
. street the .water followed an old water pipe
! ditch and washed out a hole that extended
: from the center of the street to the curb. It
was eight feet deep and two feet wide , the
dlmcnslcr.s of ( ho original ditch , and made
a most dangerous obstruction In the street.
On South Main street n similar ditch , but
! of only slight depth , was cut In the center
Of the sidewalk. It ran parallel with the
| , walk for quite a distance.
1 Complaint was made to the police yester
day that the Burlington's limited vestibule
train was stoned while running between the

fore the train , reached the bridge. Under
the Iowa low It Is a felony to throw a stone
t a passenger train , and the Burlington
people are very anxious to get hold of the
miscreant In this case and make an example
of him.

IN Involved.
Judge Macy made an order yesterday In
the case of Deere , Wells & Co. , against the
Milwaukee Hallway company , refusing the
defendant's motion to transfer the case to
the federal court. The suit Is to recover
damages to the amount of $140.000 from the
railway company for alleged carelessness
In burning grass and rubbish on Its right
of way In tlio vicinity of the big warehouse
of the plaintiff by which the lire was com
municated to the building and the entire
plant destroyed. The suit was brought last
fall In the United States court , and after
the trial had proceeded for nearly two weeks
the attorneys for the plaintiff took excep
tions to some of the rulings ot the couit
and suspended further proceedings by uum-
marlly withdrawing the case from the court.
The motion to dismiss without prejudice was
made In the morning and before the middle
of the afternoon the suit was started anew
In the district court , the damage being laid
ut $140,000 , several thousand dollars more
than In the original suit. To bring the case
surely within the jurisdiction of the state
court the plalntlfTtt made Slack Peterson , the
flection or yard foreman , who had charge of
the gangs of men engaged In the work of
burning the rubbish , a co-defendant with the
railway company. This raised an Important
question concerning the jurisdiction of the
state courts that had not been Involved In
the other suit which was taken from the
district Into the federal court. When the
petition to have the case remanded to
the federal court was presented nnd
argued the new questlona were brought and
taken under advlsctncnt by the court. In
the order refusing the petition of the com
pany the court sajs : "It Is ordeied by tiio
court that the defendant's petition for re
mand be denied on the ground that the
tort of which complaint Is made Is the basis
of the action against each defendant , and
each defendant , If liable at all , Is liable
In the same amount , and under the Iowa
statutes the defendants can maintain an
action against the defendants jointly. "
The fire which caused the damage occurred
on the evening of December 13 , 1895 , and
was one of the most destructive conflagra
tions that ever occurred In the city. In
the report of the chief of the lire depart
ment the lose Is placed at $147,800 , and the
Insurance at $134,300. The suit will be tried
at the present term of the district court and
will be of general interest. The result will
largely depend upon the showing that each
side will make as to the direction of the
wind at the time the fire started , for the
plaintiff claims that the wind was from the
southwest and carnml the burning rubbish
across the street , wln'io the defendants
claim that the wind was blowing strongly
from the southeast and that It was consequently
quently Impossible for the lire to have been
carried from the company's right of way
where the weeds were burning.

A motion for a continuance was made yes
terday in the case of the State against Mc-
Hngh , alias Ulley , charged with shooting
ex-Deputy Sheriff Nick O'Brien. The case
has been placed in the criminal assignment
to be taken up next week. The man has
been In jail hero now almost a year , con
tinuances being granted at the request of
his attorneys. During all ot this time. Me-
Hugh has not bsen confined with the other
prisoners , but has been kept In one of tbe
front cells and by himself. He has taken
his confinement good naturcdly. There la a
good deal of speculation around the county
court house as to what the real reasons for
the delay In bringing the case to trial are ,
U has been noted by jail visitors that Hlley
has changed greatly since his arrest. When
first locked up ho was a strong , large-appear
ing and stalwart man , full ot vigor and an
ugly customer to handle ; now he appears to
bo small and effeminate , and men who saw
him a couple ot years ago would have some
reason to doubt now that he was the same

Acting Is "the nrt preservative" of the
charm of many faithful daughters ot the
stage , relates the Boston Transcript. With
what perennial refinement and vivacity has
Mis. John Drew held the hearts of theater
goers , literally , for three score years and
ten ! From the first childish efforts ot little
Louisa Lane , on the London boards , until
Mrs. Drew's latest Joy-glvlng Interpretations
of Mrs. Malaprop there has been a period of
years equal to the tenure ot the life ot man.
Yet , what pleasure there was for all who
saw her ! It seems only the other day slnto ,
with the great east , "The Hlvals" was given
at the Boston theater In June last year under
Mr. Jefferson's direction.
Custom only makes more fruitful of satis
faction the Infinite variety or the art of old
actresses who wear their years as graces and
count each new birthday as an added dignity
to bo observed with honor In pride of peren
nial charm. It Is doubtless the necessity of
putting away self and the sorrows and
worries of self and living before the world
for even a few hours now and then In the
life of some creature of comedy or rpmance
or melodrama or tragedy which keeps the
fountain of health and life Insplrlngly sweet
and refreshing. Ot course , there are midnight
suppers and late hours and many other dis
tractions which might undermine the health
If the mind were allowed to dwell upon them.
But In these latter'days , when all the world
knows how the mind and the will can rule
the bodily health or wreck It , the secret of
the perennial youth of aged actresses Is
more an open secret than of yore. For no
woman takes better care of her health , be-
cfaiiso she will keep young and facile In adap
tation , than the daughter of the stage , whose
love for It lasts her past her COth birthday.
And U Is only the women who really love
and honor their art , who really care for the
stage by grace of nature and endoxvment
of the gods , who are found acting still at
an age when caps and chimney corners are
the refuge of those who played only for
money and renown , and having gained
them quitted the scenes of their triumphs
whlls still comparatively young. There 19
a lovable list of actresses who have been
before the public until at least 60 years of
ago. Fanny Keniblo , It Is true , was rather
a dramatic reader than an actress In her
later years , but until she died In 1893 , at the
age of 82 , she kept much of the old attrac
tion which In her "Juliet" turned the heads
of all the youth of the land when she first
came to this country as a young girl with
her distinguished father. Mrs. Slddons lived
to be 76 , and although she retired formally
from the stage at the age of 57 , she was
for nearly two decades the Inspiring won
der of the dramatic world whenever she
chose to come out of her seclusion to read
'Macbeth , or King John , herself a whole com
pany ot stars In her own support , her dra
matic power peopling a platform with the
full pageantry and tragedy of the life that
her single voice and action described and
made to live.
Charlotte Cnshman was within a year of
her sixtieth birthday at the time of the great
farewell demonstration In her honor at the
old Globe theater ; she died In less than a
year thereafter. Rlstorl , the Marchioness del
Grllla , who Is now living in retirement on her
Italian estates , Is 76 years of age , and was
well Into the honorable list of aged actresses
before she quitted the stage. Madame De-
iazot , the famous Parisian , was 77 when she
died , and she had left the theater but a com
paratively short time. Mrs. Robert Kcelcy ,
he English farce player , celebrated her nine
tieth birthday not long ago. Clara Flsher-
Maeder is 86 , ant within a very tow years
las charmed audiences with as much vivacity
as In the days of auld lang syne. She was
the toast of all the lads In London , or Boston ,
or New York as a young girl , and the wonder
of the critics as a child actress before she was
n her teens.
Mrs. Gilbert Is rtlll with us In active life ,
" " In of the
pleasant as "Penelope" as any
: omedy wlfehoods when with James Lewis
she used to draw the parents ot the young
leoplo who go to see her now. Mrs. Gilbert
and Mrs. John Drew ! What happy memories ,
what cheerful thoughts come trooping to the
mind at mention of cither the last or the first !
And to crown the list Is the name of Mrs.
Vincent , dearest to Boston of all actresses
who have not known age In the lasting youth
of a good heart. Mrs. Vincent was a year and
a fortnight on tl'c sunny side of 70 when she
played in her last role , "Kezlah Beckman , "
at the Bostcn museum. Then , after her more
than half a century of stage life , came the
ast curtain and the call to another llfo within
a week of the opening of September , 1887.
Her farewell was the silent one that went
deep into the hearts of her public in Boston ,
where for more than thirty years she had
proved how "honor , love , obedience , troops of
'rlends" ' may accompany the actress who has
the art to grow old with grace Increasing
with her years.

"There Is absolutely no doubt In my
mind , " says Nicola Testa In the New York
World , " "that the latent power fully exists
n man to gicatly prolong the average
length of IIH | life by the exercise of extra
ordinary care and the proper utilization of
; ho various Instruments which science , day
by day , Is placing at his disposal. A large
proportion of the people who die nowadays
Dcfore reaching what Is commonly called
old age can truce the cause of their death
to the fact that microbes of every kind
are allowed by them to enter their bodies
through the mvallowlne of microbe-laden
water and food nnd through the Inspiration
of microbe-laden air. How many people
are really caicful today about the water
they drink , the food they swallow and the
air they breathe ? And how many millions
of people would be careful If they knew the
difference between microbe-laden food and
air and those which are really pure ?
"Now , Instead of whole armies of us
plunging Into the disgraceful and contemp
tible task of killhiK each other In battle ,
Instead of thousands of our master minds
spending all their lives In the Invention and
construction of some terrible machines to
kill other human beings , why should not nil
of us Join hands toKi < tn < > r and shoulder to
shoulder turn nil our and mental
energies to killing nnd warding off all our
common enemies and dangers as men ? I
refer to the perils that are all about us ,
that threaten us In the air we breathe , the
wated we drink and the food we consume.
"Is It not strange and shameful that
human beings , creatures In the highest state
of devvlopniHiit in this world , beings with
hueh Immense powers of thought and ac
tion , the masters of the globe , shculd bo
absolutely at the mercy of our unseen foes ,
that we should not know whether a swallow
of food or drink brings us Joy and life or
pain and death ?
"The economical production of hlfh-fre.
qupncy current ! ! of electricity , which Is now
an accomplished fact , enables us to generate
euHlly ami In large quantities ozone for the
disinfection of the water and the air , while
certain novel radiations recently discovered
give hope of llndtni ; effective remedies
against Ills of mlcroblc origin which have
hitherto withstood all efforts of the physi
"Let the whole world turn against our
real foe disease. Then , with the certain
discovery of hundreds of such secrets as
the Roentpen rays In their various forms ,
und countless other means of detecting the
presence of bacilli and microbes In the
blood , the disordered conditions of the tie-
sues and vital parts , with the legal Inter
marriage of only such ns are physically
iierfect down to the smallest detail of tissue ,
blood and bone , nnd with the proper ob
servance of the laws of health , it Is by no
means too much to expect that man fan
ultimately prolong the average length of his
llfu to 100 yours. I believe we are learning
to live more Intelligently every year. It Is
very fe-rutlfylni ; . for one thing , to tlnd that
children are being brought up more care
fully than ever before. 1 belltve that with
the most careful scientific msn-lape a race
of men and women may In time he devel-

. DBS MOINES , Scnt.1l7.-Speclal Tele-
gram. ) Judge Woolson m the federal court
today handed down a decision of great Im
portance to bankers. A bank at Pelln failed
several years ago , having on deposit nt the
time nearly $5.000 of money deposited there
by thu treasurer of the Independent school
district of Pclla. The school district brought
an action against the receiver ot the bank
to require him to regard the funds of the
school district as a special ttust fund , which
must bo paid In full before any ordinary
claims should bo paid. The decision Is that
the deposit shall be BO regarded , and Is
based on the statement that the treasurer
ot the district had no authority to make a
deposit subject to the ordinary uncertainties
ot business transaction ; that he was the
representative ot the public and absolutely
liable for the money ; that when the funds
were placed In the bank the fiduciary respon
sibility was transferred to the Institution
which must now pay this claim before any
others. The case has been pending In dlt-
fcrent forms for several years. It will be
appealed , as the decision announces an ab
solutely new principle.

DCS MOINES , Sept. 17. ( Special Tele
gram. ) The State Election board was In
session several hours today , listening to the
arguments In the controversy between the
regular and middle-of-the-road populists to
determine the use of the name of people's
party on the ofilclal ballot. Chairman
Weeks of the mlddle-of-the-roaders made a
long address. He argued that the fusion
which was effected between democrats and
populists at the convention of Juno 23
amounted to a betrayal of the populist party
Into the hands of the democrats ; that It was
done deliberately with the Intention and the
expectation that the populists would not
have a ticket on the oulclal ballot. He con
tended that the principles enunciated In the
platforms of the populist party have been
abandoned In effecting this fusion ; that
those principles were represented now by no
party except the middle-of-the-road organ
ization. Ho quoted .the statements of the
officers of the regular organization that they
did not expect to place their ticket on the
ballot this year , but Intended that all popu
lists should vote the democratic ticket and
argued that the maintenance of a paity
without either a ticket to vote or a name on
on the ballot as evidence of Its existence was
Judge Cole for the , regulars maintained
that the state convention , of a party is its
highest tribunal and that If that convention
had enunciated a new'sfet ' if principles , as In
this case , and adoptcxl A iicw line of policy
It was nobody's business.Ho showed that
thu regularity of the convention of June 23 ,
which entered the fusion 'arrangement ' , was
not seriously questioned , , that the bolting
leaders all took part In. Us. deliberations and
tried to control It till after they had been
defeated and then withdrew and organized
their Independent party.
The board took the matter under advise
ment , and will hand 'down a decision In a
few days. Judge Cole said If the decision
was against him he would take the matter
before the supreme court at once on a writ
of certlorarl and have a new hearing there.
He also Intimated that an assault will be
made on the new anti-fusion ballot law on
the ground that It Is unconstitutional.

SIOUX CITY , Sept. 17. ( Special Telegram. )
Another bone of contention In the manage

night when a mass meeting of about 300
property owners was held to protest against
the extension of the franchise of the Sioux
City Traction company. The meeting was
held In front of the Federal building and
right across the street was the city council
In meeting assembled and presumably acting
on the very thing the citizens were protestIng -
Ing against. A few days ago the traction
company in a very quiet manner Introduced
an ordinance In the council meeting asking
that Its franchise be extended to 1983 , which
is about thirty years longer than the present
franchise runs. It contends that it
must bo granted this extension to
go on with its Improvements end
cannot sell Its bonds unless It Is allowed.
The citizens protest , saying It Is wrong to
the future generations , and that the com
pany Is trying to rush It through before
the new law on franchises goes Into effect
October 1. Several red-hot speeches were
made at the mass meeting , and the city
council was bitterly criticised for entertain
ing the idea for a minute , and serious
charges were made against both the com
pany and the council. The ordinance has
not passed Its first reading yet , and tbo
meeting adopted a resolution condemning
the ordinance and urging the council to re
ject It. It is liable to develop into a serious
fight if the company continues Its request.
Another meeting will bo held on Monday

SIOUX CITY , Sept. 17. ( Special Tele
gram. ) It looks very much as If the Barber
Asphalt Paving company had bumped against
a snag In this city , and eoiiio of the troubles
will likely bo aired In court before a settle
ment Is reached. This company had the
contract for paving a number of the streets
ot the city with sheet asphalt. It Is con
tended by a number of the property owners
that the work has not been performed ac
cording to the contract , and they have pro
tested against Its acceptance by the city
council. It Is claimed there was favoritism
and fraud In the letting ot the contracts and
that there was no competition against thin
company ; that the price Is exorbitant and
that there was collusion to let the contract
to the Barber company.
Part of the fuss lutf been raised by the
fuel that Omaha i < i getting some of Its
streetu paved for a far Icfcs sum than Sioux
City Is paying , and the fpcal property own
ers hope to got out ot paying the paving
assessment. Two onthree companies put In
bids to do the work'put ; it Is alleged that
all are one and tho'.sujno outfit and tbe
property owners refuse , tu pay for the work
pn the grounds of collusion.

"I never netiully # lld down n toboggan
slide , " sold the tetlred burglar to the New
Ycrk Sun man. "but I think I eun form
a o city fair Idea of what It's like from an
exoerlcncc that I hod oner. 1 was poking
ar.und In a house that 1 was In and t had
lint come out of u room on the second
floor where there was a man asleep that
struck me somehow as being pretty icstless ,
and 1 hadn't moro'n got through the door
Into the hall nhcn I heard this man holler ;
" 'Here he l . Jim1' and taw him Jump
ojt of bed anl come h'llln' after me , and
? t the same minute 1 saw a man eoino rlppln'
end ranuiln' out of n door down by the other
end of the hall.
"Now the thing that I'd ha' done under
ordinary circumstances , or course , would
have been to run dowiulalrs , but the door
that Jim was coming out cf was right by
Inn head of the stairs , and It wasn't possi
ble. But right back ot me there was an
attic stairs. I knew , because I'd opened the
dnor whrn 1 came up , and tin- only
way out for mo was that way. It wasn't a
wav I'd ha' picked out , but It nan narrow
stairs , boarded on the sides , ami I knew that
It I could get Into It and faced to the
front. 1 could stand off both men easy enough
till I had time to think , anyway , unless they
had a cun. with my jimmy. So I opened
that door and jumped up the stairs about
four steps and slewed around to face 'em.
"I was carrying my bag by a strap over
mv shoulder , nnd I had my lamp In my left
hand. I turned my lamp up for juct n
fraction of a second when I went In , to see
what was above , and I saw almost over-
hpad the Rtnittlo In the roof and the ladder
leading to It from the garret floor right
nl the htvid of these attic stairs. Scuttle
held onlv bv a hook hooking Into a staple ,
I could see that easy. A man can see a
hnao under some circumstance * .
"I made a swing or two at the boys with
the Jimmy and stood 'cm off easy at first ,
because It sounded very BORgy when slugged
Into the side ot the stairs , but I know they'd
rush In pretty quick , and I glvo 'cm just one
moro vicious pass with the Iron and then I
turned and bolted for the scuttle with them
after mo. I'd dropped lamp and Jimmy In
my bag , and I used both hands on the scuttle
ladder. Darkcr'n Egypt now , but I knew
where that hook -was Just as well ns though
thcro'd been 'n electric light alongside of It.
" 1 throw back the hook and throw the scut
tle up bang over ontn the loot and caught
the frame and raised mjsclt up. It was on
old-fashioned house , you've seen 'em , two
stories high In front and one In the back ,
\ylth a long , sloping roof running down from
the ridgepole , with a sort of bend or valley
In It about two-thirds the wny down , where
the one-story part began.
"As 1 looked out on It the roof looked to
bo about a mile long and steep as the side
of a mountain. There was a fag end ot a
moon just rising. I could see It from where
I was through the tops of the trees , and It
made a little light , but it would have been
all the name If there hadn't been any. I
stepped out and sat down on the roof and
started , all In one motion. The foremost of
the two men reached for me out through the
scuttle and missed me by about a hair , but
that was as good BS a mile , because I was
going then a mile a nilnutc. Where to I
didn't know , but I knew I wouldn't have
long to wait.
"Jioop ! and away I went down the roof
and off the edge Into the air. That lower
part of the roof , you remember , was flatter
than the upper part , and that threw me off
nto the air kind o' horizontal , and that saved
me a heap. I'd ha' been smashed flat if thereof
roof had been steep and straight. And right
back of the house there was a terrace across
the yard , maybe three feet high , with thick
grass on It that hadn't been cut for a month
at least , and I was shot off so fur that I
dropped finally just below the crest of that
terrace and slid down the face ot It on the
thick grass and come to a stop on the level
ground below and never starteda , rivet.
"The two men was standing looking out
the scuttle , and never saying boo. but when
they saw me get up and walk off they
laughed till you could hear 'em all over the
country ; and I laughed a little rujeelf then ;
I'd had worse things happen to me. "
Too Much ImaKliintlon.
A remarkable caee ot Imagined sickness
resulting In death has ( jome to light In
Sotnerdale , 0 , , where Matthew Blanks died
ot what he believed to be hydrophobia.
Banks was bitten by a dog last spring and
Immediately became very frightened. He
got all the books he could that described
hydrophobia In Its various stages and since
reading them had brooded over th ( ! matter
until he became exceedingly nervous and
weak. Finally he succumbed to what he
asserted was hydrophobia and throughout
the slckncus Insisted upon Imitating tbe
symptoms of the disease as he had learned
them from the books. Several physicians
took charge ot the case and after a. critical
and severe examination decided that Banks
was simply a prey to his Imagination.
A Unique Pipe.
A novel pipe for transmitting hydraulic
pressure Is In use at the Victoria bridge ,
near life mouth of the River Dee , England.
As described In the Engineering News , It
consists of a solid drawn lead pipe , cov
ered with close cells of copper wire , and 16
used for conveying water at 750 pounds po <
square Inch pressure from ono side of the
river to the other to operate the machinery
of a span of the swing bridge. At first
a copper pipe one and a half Inches In
diameter , Jointed with screwed unions , was
used , but tbo scouring action of the tide
washed out the bed of the river , left the
pipe unsupported In two places and caused It
to leak. The new pipe made of lead ,
wrapped with copper wire. Is more flexible
than the old one , and it Is expected It will
woik. more satisfactorily.

CHICAGO , Sept. 17. The prosecution wll

tlon of evidence against the prisoner and
four weeks spent In the trial.
The prosecution , will close Its case will
some strong evidence tending to prove the
motive for the alleged crime. The state
will endeavor to show that Infatuation to
Mary Slemrlng , the acrvaht girl In the Luet
gert household , was the cause of the murder
U Will ho .chimed that the big sausage
maker desired to make the girl hlu wife
and that he put Mrs. huclgcrt out ot the
way In order to penult his marriage will
the girl. To prove the story , Frank Blalk
and Frank , employes of I.uet-
gcrt , who have already testified In the case
will bo put upon the stand and will give
evidence relating to the domestic affairs o
Luotgert. They are exported to testify as
to the friendliness of I.uetgcrt for Miss
Mary Sienirlng nnd the Indignant oppoaltloi
to the girl's presence In the house made b >
Mrs. Luotgert. The frequent visits of Mar >
Slemrlng to huotgcrt In the satisage factory
at unusual hours ot the nliht ; will be do
tailed. Both men will tell of sci-lng Luct
gert chase his wife upon one occasion wltl
a revolver , nnd they will tell of threats
which they heard htm make. With this evl
dcuco In , the state will rest. Today was glvei
up to technical evidence.
When the trKU of Adolph L. Luct-
gcrt opened today tht cross-examlnatloi
of Prof. Dorsoy was icKUmed. He
was questioned : is to the comparative
nature of the flestmold and femur bones ot a
calf , a sheep and a human bring. His
answers were technical and were of a char
acter that supported his original Identifica
tion ami testimony with refcicncc to the
bones in evidence.
When Attorney Vincent completed his
cross-examination of Prof. Dorsey ho moved
that the court exclude from the record all
of the evidence of the witness and also all
of the evidence of Dr. Norval Pierce In con
nection with the Identification of the femur
and temporal bones on the ground that the
Identifications wore not based upon a legiti
mate or substantial basis , but .merely . uptn
the opinion of the experts based upon cer
tain alleged conditions. The motion was
overruled. The attorney then moved to ex-
cludp all of the evidence of Prof. Del a Fen
taine , In which the latter had stated "these
may bo human bonce. " This was approved
and sustained , and the motion allowed.
Captain Schucttlcr was called to the wit
ness stand to testify as to collateral facts.
During the closing cession of court police
men were called to the witness stand to
Identify and describe where they found the
various exhibits which have figured In the
trial up to date.
The closing hour of the afternoon session
was devoted to the Identification by Prof.
Delafontalno , Prof , Hnlncs , Sergeant Spang-
ler and other witnesses of the prosecution
of exhibits used In the .trial , all of which
will go Into the Jury room when the case
Is submitted to the jury. It was the opinion
of the attorneys In the case today that the
trial would last at least three weeks longer.
There Is said to be a difference between
Luctgert's counsel with reference to the de
fendant taking the witness stand In his own
behalf. Attorney Vincent Is not Inclined to
permit Luetgcrt to do so. Attorney Phalen
believes the sausage maker should tell his
story to the Jury. Luetgert himself Is quite
determined to go upon the witness stand.
He not only desires to tell his story , but he
also wants to address the jury. In all like
lihood be will testify.

In 1C54 a Polish nobleman became obnox
ious to the laws of his country by reason ot a
crime , says London Answer. Ho fled to
Sweden , whereupon John Casslmlr , king of
Poland , wrote to Charles Gustavus , king of
Sweden , demanding the extradition of the
criminal. The king of Sweden , on reading
the dispatch , noticed that his own name and
titles .were followed by two etceteras , while
the name of the king of Poland was followed
by three. The missing etcetera so enraged
the king of Sweden that he at once declared
war against Poland. This was carried on.
with great bitterness until 16CO , when a
peace was signed at Ollva , near Dantzlg.
A contemporary writer , Kochowsky ,
poured out bis lamentation on the war In
these terms : "How dear has this etcetera
been to us ! With how many lives have these
two potentates paid for tb ni'.sslng eight
letters ! With what streams of blood has the
failure of a few drops of Ink been avenged ! "
In article three of the treaty It was ex
plicitly laid down that the custom of short
ening titles by ' "etceteratlon" should hold
good , but for the future each of the two
parties should give the other three etceteras.
The Hospital and a Fearful Operation.
Hospitalsingrcatcitiesare sad places to visit. Three-
fourths of the patients lying on these snow-white
are women and girls.
Why should this be the case ?
Because they have neglected themselveslVomen
as a rule attach too little importance to first symp
toms of a certain kind. If they have toothache ,
they will try to save the tooth , though many leave
even this too late. They comfort themselves with
the thought that they can replace their teeth ; but
they cannot replace their internal organs !
Every ono of those patients 5n the hospital beds'
had plenty of warnings in the foim of bearing-down <
feelings , pain at the right or the left of the womb ,
nervous dyspepsia , pain in the small of the hack , the
" blues"or some other unnatural symptom , hut they did
not heed them.
Don't drag along at home or in the shop until you are finally obliged to
go to the hospital and submit to horrible examinations and operations I
Build up the female organs. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will
save you from the hospital. It will put uuw life into you.
.Tho following letter shows how Mrs. Lyncss escaped the hospital nnd a
fearful operation. Her experience should encourage
other women to follow her example. She bays
to Mrs. I'inkhum :
"I thank you very much for what you have
done for me , for I had given up in despair.
Last February , I had a miscarriage caused
by overworkIt affected my heart , caused
me to have sinking hpells three to four a

I could not bo left alone. I flowed con
stantly. The doctor called twice . day
fora week , and once a day for four weeks ,
then three or four times a week for four
months. Finally he said I would have to un
dergo an operation. Then I commenced taking
Lydia E. I'inkham's Vegetable Compound , and
to and steadily improved until 1 was cured
after one week I began recover
