Woman's Kidney Troubles
Lydia E. Pinhiiajn'a Vegetable Compound is Espe
cially Successful In Curing This Fated
fflrs.J.U. Lang and
Of all the diseases known, with
which women are afflicted, kidney dis
ease is the most fatal. In fart, unless
early and correct treatment is applied,
the weary patient seldom survives.
Being fully aware of this, Mrs. Pink
ham, early in her career, gave exhaust
ive study to the subject, and in pro
ducing her jjreat remedy for woman's
Ills Lydia E. rtnkham's Vegetable
Compound was careful to see that it
contained the correct combination of
herbs which was sure to control that
fatal disease, woman's kidney troubles.
The Vegetable Compound act in har
mony with the laws that govern the
entire (omale system, and while there
are many so called remedies for kidney
troubles, Lydia E. I'inkham's Vege
table Compound is the only one epc
eially prepared for women, and thou
tands have been cured of Kerlous kidney
lerangements by it. Derangements of
the feminine organs quickly affect tho
kidneys, and when a woman has such
symptoms as pain or weight in the
loins, backache, bearing down pains,
urine too frequent, scanty or high col
ored, producing scalding or burning,
or deposits like brick dust in it; un
usual thirst, swelling of hands and feet,
swelling under the eyes or sharp pains
In the back running down the inside
of her groin, she may be sure her kid
neys are affected and should lose no
time in combating the disease with
Lydia E. Pinkham't Vegetable Com
pound, the woman's remedy for wo
man s ills
The following letters show how
marvelously successful it is,

OUNSHU PASS, Manchuria, Sept. 10.
Blnce news waa received that peace negotia
tions at Portsmouth were approaching a
soncluslon, the correspondent of the As
sociated Tress has made a survey of all
tho Russian positions from Mongolia to
headquarters, the object In part being to
ascertain the extent to which -the efforts
making for peace were viewed by the
army. The negotiations received no of
ficial recognition In the field prior to their
successful conclusion, the army keeping
In a state of preparedness for a battle un
til the receipt by General Llnevlteh of a
telegram from Emperor Nicholas declaring
that the treaty had been signed and that
his majesty accepted tho conditions ar
rived at. This telegram was officially pub
lished In the army newspaper on Septem
ber 8, and the outlines of the peace condi
tions were printed In the same publica
The" officers 'thereafter observed military
decorum In . the strictest sense, but the
soldiers, with the consent of the officers,
engaged In feasting and other forms of
celebration. It will bo a week more before
the entire army Is fully Informed of the
conclusion of peace, but the news was
discounted long since by the prevailing
conviction that since the appoint
ment of the plenipotentiaries, peace
was a foregone conclusion. It may be
snld that to the great majority of the of
ficers and. men ao far Informed, the news
that the war Is at an end Is most welcome.

fered for years wUh what the doctor called
kidney trouble and congestion of the womb.
Mr back ached dreadfully all the time, and I
suffered o with that bearing-down feeling I
could hardly walk arrow the room. I did not
get any bettor, so decided to stop dortoring
with my physician ami take l.Ttlia is. nnk
bam't V egetnble Compound ana I am thank
ful to say it has entirely cured me. I do all
my own work, have no more backache and
all the bad symptoms have disappeared.
1 cannot praitie your medicine enough, na
would advbe all women suffering with kidney
trouble to try It.
Mrs. J. W. Lang, of 028 Third Ave
nue, New York, writes:
Dear Mrs. Plnkham:
I have been a great sufferer with kidney
trouble. Sly back ached all tho time and I
was discouraged. I heard that Lydia B.
Plnkham' Vegetable Compound Would enre
kidney disease, and I began to take It: and it
lias cured me when everything else bail failed.
1 have reoommoudod it to lou of people and
they all praise it very highly.
Mr. Plnkham's Standing In
vitation. Women Buffering from kidney
trouble, or any form of female weak
ness are invited to promptly communi
cate with Mrs Plnkham, at Lynn,
Mass. Out of the great volume of e
Ferience which she has to draw from,
t is more than likely bhe has tho very
knowledge that will help your case.
Her advice is free and always help
ful. a Woman's Remedy for Woman's Ills,
war, was reviewed September 6 by Its Com
mander, General ZaroubalefT, who has won
high fame throughout the army because
of his prominence In the battles of Tatche
klo and Llao Yang, in the protection of
Mukden and In the retreat from that place.
Tho general Is mentioned as among the
first who will return home.
The disability of General Zerpltsky has
steadily increased, and he will be com
pelled to return to Europe. This officer
was noted for his singular bravery
throughout the war. He was wounded at
Mukden, where he lost three-fourths of
his Tenth army corps. It Is reported that
General Llnevlteh will leave soon, The
general staff is engaged In plans for chang
ing the commanders throughout the army,
preparatory to evacuation.
Among the soldiers generally there Is a
feeling of apprehension regarding the In
ternal affairs of Russia, and many of them
have expressed a desire to remain in Man
Prince Frledrlch Leopold of Prussia, who
has been with the army since the begin
ning of May, has announced his intention
of returning to Germany.
Some Want More Fighting.
After a prolonged . war on an enormous
scale, and after the great preparations
recently made to continue . the struggle,
the Russian army. In complying with the
conditions of peace, surrenders two com
plete positions with field works of vast
extent and even more Intricate than those
at Llao Yang, besides positions of great
strength protecting Its communications, but
notwithstanding this the correspondent
found among both officers and men a gen
erally prevailing sense of the remarkable
fairness of the conditions by which the
terrible contest has been brought to a
close. The advocates of further fighting,
however, seemed to be convinced that
the flower if the Japanese army had gone,
leaving only old reservtsts and Inferior
recruits, while the 'constant strengthening
of the Russians with young recruits they
believed gave them a large balance of
power which would have enabled them not
only to fight one more great battle, but
to enforce peace thereafter. The Impres
sion prevailed among these advocates that
the army was nearly twice Its real slse,
and their feeling of strength was due to
this exaggeration of the facts.
Since the reception of the emperor's tes
timony to the bravery and self-sacrifice
of the soldiers and the declaration of the
final acceptance of peace terms the army
has become obediently passive. All peace
news, except that direct from the ministers
or the emperor, is placed at the end of the
dispatches printed in the army publication
and is given as little prominence as pos
sible. RUSSIAN VILLAGE CHOLERA

An information bureau has been opened
at the university by the Young Men's
Christian association to assist students
In getting good rooms for the win
ter. The first thing the bureau dis
covered was that room rent had been
Severely boosted during the summer.
Rooms that rented for $8 a month last
year now cost $10, and to get a good room
It Is necessary for a student to put up $12
a month. According to the Information
collected by the bureau, rooms are Just as
plentiful as last year and the advance in
price Is attributed to the desire of the
owners of buildings to get rich quick.

plates opening up to the public. The mayor
has had the matter of the appointments

cide, as he wanted men who kept their own
lawns perfect and who would devote suffi
cient time to the city's business to make
the parks look like their lawns.

CHINESE ADOPT NEW RULE
Men Sentenoed to Death to Be Hanged
Instead of Being De
capitated. HONG KONG, Sept. 10.-Speclal Cable
gram to The Bee.) The Hong Kong Dally
Press says: "As a result of a pamphlet
written by Chevalier Volplcelll, the Italian
consul at. Hong Kong, pointing out tho
uselessness of torturing prisoners till they
made false confessions an order has been
received from Peking not to decapitate
prisoners sentenoed to death save in very
exceptional cases, but to resort to strang
ulation, t'p to the present such a mode
of execution was reserved for officials of
rnore than one button, who had been sen
tenced to death, and then It was Inserted
in the official records as so and so was
presented with a silk cord with which to
commit suicide." But the man wan
strangled by his keepers nevertheless.
"Seven men have Just been executed un
der the new rule and another whose crime,
that of supplying arms and ammunition
to the Kwangsl 'rebels, was considered of
a more serious character, had his head
chopped off according to the old custom.
The men who were strangled were first
of all tied to crosses and then -cords about
their necks Were screwed up tight. Of the
two I should say that this strangulation
was the slower and the more barbarous
way of putting a man out of existence.
A large body of spectators turned out to
see the "new fashion," several Americana
and Europeans being In the crowd. As
soon as. the affair was over one of the
Americans Immediately stepped Into the
ring to bargain with the No. 1 exeeutloner
for the cords he had used. It Is really too
bad that while some foreigners are writ
ing against these publlo executions, others.
Innumerable tourists and globe trotters.
should be encouraging them; and, fancy,
lor instance, the Indelicacy of a woman
taking snap shots at such things. I know
of one Instance of a tourist bribing the
executioner to hold his sword In the air
above the condemned man's head for three
seconds so that a clear picture might be
secured. It was a gruesome sight, and
after the execution the blood bespattered
tourist secured the executioner's sword,
even preventing him from wiping It."

summer vacation to escape the heat of
Hong Kong. From here he will proceed to
Portland., visit the exposition and thence
embark on the Dakota at Seattle September
10. This Is the boat on which the Japanese
peace commission will also sail. Mr. Skott
had the pleasure of coming across the
Pacific on the Minnesota with the commis
sion and made the personal acquaintance
of Baron Komura, Messrs. Sato and Dennl
son and other members of the Japanese
party. The Hong Kong merchant had the
privilege of playing bridge whist with the
Japanese baron and says he found him
one of the most agreeable men he ever met.
"During our conversation," said Mr.
Skott, "Baron Komura told me he did not
expect the peace conference to materialise
on any definite results. Further than that
statement he would not commit himself."
Mr. Pkott has been selling Manchester.

"I look for great opportunities for Ameri

rich in mineral and agricultural resources
and when the people are permitted to de

at the Paxton hotel Sunday afternoon as
he filled up the match receptacle and signed

"But," continued Mr. Ruble, "I can say
that things happen In series of threes.
There Is no getting around It. Some people
say It Is Just Imagination, but they would
think differently If they would take the
time to Investigate. Take the hotel busi

comes to the hotel two more will come here
the same day as sure as fate. Loek here
at Saturday's register and see for your

showed C. J. Johnson of Davenport, Arthur
C. Johnson of Denver and M. C. Johnson
of Boston. And other sheets of the register
showed three Jones, three Browns and
other names all appearing three times the

Always Pays to Be Civil,
When it came R. L. Robinson's turn to
tell a story to a group of fellow traveling

day afternoon, Mr. Robinson told of an
experience he had out In the state during
the last week.
"Out In a little town in the western part
of the state last Thursday I had an ex
perience that shows the Importance of
traveling men always keeping their tem
pers upon trying occasions and even when
they meet with rebuffs. I called on a young
man whom I previously learned .had been
given charge of his father's large busi
ness. I told the young man who I waa.
my line of goods and the name of ,my
house. As I entered the store I noticed

" 'Well, what do you think we want
with & Co.?' answered the
young man, referring to the firm I repre
sent. " "I do not know that you want any
thing to do with them, but I want to sell
you a bill of goods,' I replied
" 'Well, we don't want any of your goods
and I am getting tired of you traveling
men coming around here every day bother
ing me,' he rejoined.
"Then I gave him a little kindly advice
on the wisdom of at least being civil, told
him I once was his age and possibly aa
foolish as he at that age. He then began
to see things In a different light. His father
came In. ovcheard the last of our coiversa-

We parted the best of friends and I wot
not but the traveling man will hereafter
find a friend In that young man."

LONDON. Sept. 10 -(Special Cablegram to

great developments In the agitation against
the atrocities In the Congo Free State.
Meetings are being arranged all over the
country, to commence In October. In all
probability the lord mayor will preside
over a great gathering In the Mansion
Rev. J. if. Harris of the Congo Baloln
mission it Barlnga. who has Just returned
to this country, has brought with blm a
vast amount of material In support of the
charges against administration. Mr. Harris
states that several of the officials known
to be Implicated In the report of the com
mission of Inquiry, are bolting from the
Congo with the suspected connivance of
the government of Belgium and In an in
terview he told the tragic but typical story
of one affair which occupied the commis
sion for some time, vis., the expedition
conducted by M. Hanotte, the agent of the
Ablr company, against Sambekota. and the
arming of the Ablr sentries with Alblnl
rifles. Writing to the secretary of ths
commission. Mr. Harris gives, with cor
roborative remarks of his own, the story
of a native eye witness:
"I went with M. Hanotte when he made
the raid on Ekota. I accompanied him as
a peddler and then as a carrier Inland.
We anchored at the Samba beach and
slept the first night at Samba Itself. Next
morning we started. W were armed with
guns, and the Samba people accompanying
us bore spears, shields, bows and arrows,
!n order to assist. Toward evening we
settled down In the forest for the night.
Next day we surprised the Ekota people.
"We met two boys at the entrsnce to
the town. These were killed, but M. Han
notte gave orders to kill only grown men
In the future. The fighters went in every
direction and killed a great many. At one
place we saw a foot lying on the ground
and M. Hannotte said, 'Throw It away.'
"Further on we saw a murdered woman.
M. Hannotte ordered her corpse to be
thrown Into the bush. I saw at least five
corpses, but many people were killed that
I did not notice.
"M. Hannotte himself saw many of tho
corpses. The dead bodies were cut up
and eaten by the Samba people and others
with M. Hannntte's knowledge.
"The chief, Naumbo Ngengl, camo and
made peace, agreeing in the future to bring
"At the time of the visit of the commis
sion of Ino.ulry M. Hannotte was," said
Mr. Harris, "returning from Europe to
the Congo. The commission of Inquiry
met him further down the river and Inter
rogated him with reference to the malad
ministration for which he was responsi
ble. "He replied to the commission, the sec
retary of which sent me his copy of de
" 'I took part in no expedition against
Sambekota and no Alblnts were taken. In
the month of October I made a peaceful
expedition to this village and others of
the region. I had an escort of five men
armed with Alblnl rifles, and many car
riers. "On May 8 Dr. Voght, the Investigating
magistrate, visited my station to make in
quiries into the many atrocities that had
been committed In that district, but he
said before he entered that he wished to
ask me a few questions with regard to the
administration of certain individuals, but
he said I must first pledge myself neither
to publish nor to, speak in public upon the
matters to which he was about to refer.
"I told him that I could upon no ac
count give him such a pledge because I
knew far more atrocities than had ever
been brought to light, and It was quite
likely that I knew already what he had
In his papers. However, I did promise
that I would not publish nor speak In
public upon those matters not previously
know nto me.
"Then, he said, did I know anything
about M. Hannotte's expedition against
certain villages, at which he killed a large
number of people, and at which he forced
his fighters with a pistol at their heads
to eat the corpses of the people killed.
"I told him that I had already called the
attention of the commission of inquiry to
this affair. The only point of which I was
in ignorance was that he held his pistol to
the heads of his fighters to force them to
eat the corpses. Dr. Voght told me that
this Information had been obtained from
the mouth of M. Hannotte himself while
retailing this affair to some friends In
Brussels or Antwerp during his furlough.
How comes it that coincident with this
M. Hannotte, who has been only a few
months back from Europe, gets a warning
to flee the country and does so with the
sanction of the Congolese government T Can
It be accounted for In this way?
"M. Hannotte told me personally that he
had the permlsslson of the Congo govern
ment to go and attack these people be
cause their rubber supply had fallen off."
MORE D0UKH0B0RS COMING
Russians Pass Through London on
May to Their Colony In
LONDON, Sept. 10 -(Speclal Cablegram to
The Bee.) In the early hours of the morn
ing a band of ISO Doukhobors arrived at
Hay's wharf, Tooley street, on their way
to Canada from Llbau. About ten years
ago the members of this sect were ex
patriated to Siberia in consequence of
proselytism, refusal to give military serv
ice and other offenses resulting from their
strange religious beliefs. The upheaval In
Russia caused by the war with Japan re
sulted In their release, which was granted
upon the condition that they emigrate to
"Canada Is very glad to get them," said
W. T. H. Preston, the Canadian commis
sioner of emigration. "Their two chief
distinguishing characteristics are their re
ligious enthusiasm and their vegetarian
Ism. About 10,000 Doukhobors are already
settled In various parts of Canada and
more than it per cent of them are accept
ing the conditions of life In the Dominion
and living as law-abiding citizens.
"The Doukhobors dally expect the second
coming of the Messiah and ths extremists
have the belief that they must meet him
unclothed. As they have more than once
thought the second coming Imminent, and
have acted up to their bellufs, troublous
times have occasionally come upon them.
"Two or thre years ago a body of
of the Doukhobors In Canada were struck
with this religious mania and started out
to look for the Messiah. But when ths
authorities found that the process of
stripping themselves of their clothing was
being Indulged In they sent them home to
their respective farms.
"Last year," added Mr. Preston, "a party
of over fifty, of both sexes, acted In the
sams manner. The authorities got word
of It and found them making a nude but
absolutely religious pilgrimage. Again
stern measures had to be used before they
could be Induced to put en their clothes
snd behsve in an orderly manner."
