The cufe of Mr. Murph proves fully the
Insertion made above. After years of

Palne's Celery Compound made a "new

Mr. R. H. Murph. Rich, S. C, under the
direction of a kind Providence, was led to
use the medicine that "makes sick peoplo
well." His testimony Is strong and con
rinclng. It shows unmlstakeably that
Palne's Celery Compound Is the true health
builder for weak, weary, sleepless and run

"I have had nervous prostration for sev

NEW YORK, April 25. Stockholders of
the Cnlted States Steel corporation received
today the circular letter of the corporation,
setting forth the exact terms under which
It is proposed to retire $200,000,000 of 7
per cent preferred stock and issue $250,000,
000 of 6 per cent bonds, thereby Increasing
the bonded debt from $300,000,000 to $550,
000,000. Accompanying thla' circular was a
report of the finance committee which set
forth in detail varioua reasons why the re
funding plan should be approved, together
with a series of resolutions reciting bow
the plan is to b6 carried out. The stock
holders' report, signed by President Schwab
and Chairman Gary, say In part:
In February, lixil, various subsidiary com
panies had under contemplation, and In
many cases actually had begun, the con
struction of additions to their plants, which
in some instances would have duplicated
the facilities of the subsidiary companies.
The Hpgregate of thes contemplated ex
pemliuiifs was something like !50,(),0W.
As stHted In the preliminary report at the
time of organization It was hoped much
might be accomplished In the way of avoid
ing wasteful expenditures for urncessary
enlargement of plants and mucn has been
accomplished by co-operation among the
several companies, enabling one to utilise
the facilities of the other. However, owing
largely to advance commitments, It was

the preliminary report to stockholders
these payments were described as "purchase-money

committee is unanimous In its support of
the executive committee's recommenda

executive committee, I26,WO,IUO should be

than par ana wnicn, ir sum hi par, won in
be entitled to dividends at the rate of 7
per cent, and would Increase by 3,(0,(K

of the corporation.
To Rearrange Capitalisation.
After discussion with some of the prin
cipal stockholders It appeared practically
to rearrange your corporation's capitaliza
tion (which. In round numbers, now con
sists of $3K),Oun,Oi4 oJ bonds, 5"0,oiio,ooo of

preferred stock jLVO.uiiO.lKiO of si. iking fund
sixty-year 5 per cent mortgage gold bonds,
end by selling $50,000.1100 additional bonds
of such issue for cash. As the preferred
stock carries 7 per cent dividends, while
the bonds would bear but 5 per cent In
terest, the 150.000,000 desired could In this
way be added to the corporate resources
and the aggregate of the annual charges
for interest and dividends, instead of being
Increased W,5tHMRK, would be decreased
11.500,0(10, as compared with the present
sum total or meat two requirements.
The unanimous conclusion of the finance !
and executive committees is that, consld- j
erlng the vast aggregate value of the
physical properties, the proposed 1250.000,- '
mi Increase of bonds from $:iu0,fti0.uu0 to i
.50.0ipn.0J Is wise and conservative, tho i
preferred stock Issue being simultaneously ,
decreased u per cent, or jiiu,ihjo,ooo. The
consequent tU.onO.OuO reduction of dividend
payments, as compared with the 12.50O,o00
Increase of Interest would result In an an
nual saving of ll,&on,i.iO, exceeding bv HSO,

of to be required by the proposed
mortgage, and which, invested at 4 per
cent, would be sufficient In sixty years to

Syndicate la Formed.
To further the success of the plan there
has been formed a syndicate Including
some directors which will receive four
fifths of the 4 per cent compensation to be
paid under the contracts with Messrs. J.

MOBILE, Ala.. April 25. Mrs. Eglrla Bar
rios, widow of Relna B. Barrios, president
of Guatemala, who was assassinated In
1S'j8. sought safety In the home of the
American minister to Guatemala, W. God
frey Hunter, and moved all her furniture,
brlc-a-brac, draperies, diamonds and Jew
elry, thither for safe keeping.
It appears from an affidavit sworn before
Richard Weskatta, vice consul general at
London, that Mr. Hunter is charged with
illegally retaining her property under the
plea of payment for thirteen weeks' board
and lodging of Mrs. Barrios and her at
tendants and services rendered. Mrs. Bar
rios denies any obligation or contract for
board and lodging or services, saying:
AVhen personally solicited to live at the
legation by the minister I thought that by
reason of the muny courtesies shown the
minister by President Harriot and myself
Minister Hunter In gratitude for the same
had invited me to live at the legation as his
guest, pendltiK the settlement of my affulrs
with the Uuatemalnn government, which
Mr. Hunter whs Instructed to do by the
Department of State. In gratitude for what
I suppose was the disinterested and kindly
disposition for the reason aforesaid of the
said Minister Hunter, 1 did give to Minister
Hunter ami bis family valuable pieces of
diamond Jewelry of a hundred times the
value of the board and lodging at the lega
tion of the I'nlted States, and for the un
official services the said Minister Hunter
pretended to render me and which he was
instructed to render by the Department of
Btate of the I'nlted States.
Mrs. Barrios further charges that a re
ceipt for $1,000 that Mr. Hunter obtained
from Is-dor Schwartz, executor of the Bar
rios estate and which Hunter makes part
of the basis of his claim to furniture and
valuables. Is not bona fide. Mrs. Barrios
declares fbat Hunter never paid a cent to
, the estate and said he wanted the receipt
, to show the Department of States, should
his right to charge for board and lodging
. be disallowed.
The original of this affl''alt was entrusted
to J. S. McNally, I'nlted States consul gen
eral at Guatemala City, and after being
photographed was forwarded In January to
the State department at Washington.

we find that some kind and helpful thlnjr we have done for some one else haa
leen aincerelr appreciated ! At such times, how truly we understand the ea
preasion " it ia more blessed to give than to receive."
Think, therefore, of the pleasure and genuine satisfaction Mra. Pinkham
experiencea when auch letters come to her aa the one from Mrs. Roser which
we are herewith permitted to publish.
Think what it means to her ; it meana first, that one more lovely woman
haa been relieved from sickness and distress through her assistance ; it meant
aecond, that thia woman who ia cured ia so grateful that the wanta other
women in the land to know of it; and it meana lastly that Mra. Pinkham'a
claims for Lydia 12. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound are fully sub
atantlated by testimony of auch high character that every woman who reada
thia must believe and hope.
To be appreciate! is a great pleasure, but to bring peace and happiness to
the suffering is heavenly. Such is the mission of Mra. Pinkham, and auch A
letter aa the following provea her aucceaa I .

MRS. IDA L. ROSER, 32rt E. 18th Ave Denver, CoL
Grand-niece of ez-Pre6ldent James K. Polk, and Assistant Grand Secretary of
Colorado, 'Wyoming, and New Mexico Independent Order

"Dear Mrs. Pinkham I have been married for nearly two years,
end bo far have not been blessed with a child. I have, however, suf
fered with a complication cf female troubles and painful menstruation,
until very recently.
"The value of Lydiu E. Pinkham's Vcpetable Compound vaa
called to my attention by an intimate friend, whose life had simply been
a torture with inflammation and ulceration, and a few bottles of your
Compound cured her: she can hardly believe it herself todty, she en
joys such blessed health. I took four bottles of your Compound and
consider myself cured. I am once more in fine hei.lth and spirits ; my
domestic and official duties all seem easy now, for I feel so stronp I can
do three times what I used to do. You have a host of friends in Den
ver, and among the best count, Yours very gratefully, Alas. Ida I
Roskr, 326 18th Ave., Denver, Col."
When a medicine lias been successful In restoring to health
to many women whose testimony is so unquestionable, you cannot
well say, without trying It, " I do not lelieve It will help me." If
you are 111 don't hesitate to get a bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound at once, and write Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn,
Mass., for special advice It is free and always helpful.
