MON RLVER5T0NE '
Recently Elevated to the English
If you should talk about Baron A 1-
verstone in this country it is quite
likely that few would know the man
that was meant. Formerly and bet-
ter known than Baron Alverstone he
was Sir Richard Webster Lord Chief
Justice of England. When this emi-
nent jurist was counsel for Mrs. May-
brick in 1880 he madd a hard fight to
get this woman out of an English
law's clutch. Persistent in his be-
lief that she was innocent of the
charge of poisoning her husband he
has many thousands of friends in
America. The same thing can be
said for "The Irish Senator" which
had a run of 233 nights at the Strand
Theatre London before being pro-
duced in this country that it has
made thousands of firm friends in
America during its tour here. It will
be seen in this city before many days
( and "Wise is the man who knows
' what is best worth knowing and does
what is best worth doing."

Curiosities in Divorce.
Some curious facts appear from an
International table of divorce statistics
that has been published in Paris.
From this it appears that the little
cosmopolis known as Switzerland is
pro rata most prolific in divorce the
numbers being 40 per thousand mar-
riages. France follows with 21 and
Germany comes next with 17 per
thousand. In France divorces have
Brown fiom 1879 in 1S84 to 14092 in
1904. It also appears that nearly twice
as many women are divorced as men
on the ground of misconduct not that
men are more virtuous but that they
have more opportunities of conceal-
ment and women are readier to forgive.
India's Sacred Trees.
There are many sacred trees of
India which enter largely into the re-
ligious life of the Hindoos. Chief
among these is the sami tree and the
trembling peepul. Nearly all the
higher hills and rocks in the plains
are crowned each by 4 temple shrine
or sacred tree. The peepul is known
as the king of trees. It 13 the most
holy and the three great spirits of
the Hindoos dwell therein. The wor-
ship of the tree is the worship of the
triad Brahma Siva and Vishnu. Al-
most every Indian Tillage has its pee-
pul tree with a raised platform or al-
tar around it. The devout remove
their shoes before it and make obei-
sance before proceeding on their way.
"This Is one of our greatest show
places" said the man who was show-
ing a friend about hi3 town. "Why it's
only a vacant lot!" replied the friend.
"Sure; but that's where the circus al-
ways shows when it comes to town."

SEES MISSOURI "DRY" STATE
The Prediction of Senator Peck of
Sb. Louis SeDt. 19. Missouri saloons

siah Peck of Atchison county who is

dicts the entire state will be dry in
''A majority of the members of the

Sick Kidneys Weaken the Whole
Body Make You 111 Languid
Sick kidneys weaken the body
through the continual drainage of
life-giving albumen from the blood
into the urine and the substitution
of poisonous uric acid that goes broad-
cast through the system sowing the
seeds of disease. Loss of albumen
causes weakness languor depression.
Uric poisoning causes rheumatic pain
nervousness nausea crick in the back
gravel and kidney stones. The prop-
er treatment is a kidney treatment
and the best remedy is doan's Kidney
Pills. Great Vinita cures prove it.
J. II. Fly farmer living seven miles
northwest of Vinita Indian Territory
says: '-For several years I had been
troubled off and on with my kidneys
and back. The secretions were ir-
regular In action and there were burn-
ing sensations in passing them. Of-
ten I had to get up five or six times
during the night breiakng my rest
so that I awoke in the morning feeling
tired and unrefreshed. I had a gre.ti
deal of pain in the small of my back
which was aggravaten considerable if
I stooped or lifted anything. I heard
about Doan's Kidney Pills and pro-
cured a box at theSPeoples' drug store.
I commenced their use taking four
pills a day and I noticed an improve-
ment from the first. A continuation
of their use relieved me of their dif-
ficulty from the kidneys and cured
me of backache. I heartily recom-
mend Doan's Kidney Pills to all suf-
ferers." For sale by all dealers. Price r0
