Mn. Tom Thumb Still Allv*
Mra. Tom Thumb, made famous by
Barnum, is still alive at the age of
65. She had a regular turn in a Mid-
get theater at Coney Island and is
driven home each evening in the
identical coach presented to Tom
Thumb in 1884 by King Edward,then
Prince of Wales. She is very religious
and a member of the Actor's Church
alliance and of the Woman's Aid soci-
ety. She is also a Daughter of the
American Revolution. The famous
wedding of Tom Thumb was cele-
brated in Grace church. New York, In
"64, and the photograph of "The
Fairy Wedding Group" is doubtless
etill cherished in hundreds of plush
albums or parlor center tables.

•' Dear Mrs. pisnnastf:— I Buffered
for four years with what the doctors
called Salpingitis (inflammation of the
fallopian tubes aud ovaritis), which is
a most distressing and painful ailment,
affecting- all the surrounding' parts,
undermining the constitution, and sap-
ping the life forces. If you had seen
me a year ago, before I began taking"
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, and had noticed the
sunken eyes, sallow complexion, and
general emaciated condition, and com-
pared tliat person with mo as I am to-
day, robust, hearty and well, you
would not wonder that I feel thankful
to you and your wonderful medicine,
which restored me to new life and
health in five months, and saved me
from an awful operation.'*— Miss I rknb

proving genuineness cannot be produced.
Ovaritis or inflammation of the
ovaries or fallopian tul es which adjoin
the ovaries may result from sudden
stopping of the monthly flow, from
inflammation of the womb, and many
other causes. The slightest indication
of trouble with the Ovaries, indicated
by dull throbbiug pain in the side, ac-
companied by heat and shooting pains,
should claim your instant attention.
It will not cure itself, and a hospital
operation, with fc?l its terrors, may
easily result from neglect.

Day, Throwing Shells Into Port
HAD CLOCKS TO BURN.
CURES catarrh ot the stomach.
Chefoo, Sept. Id.—A Chinese who
left Liaoti promontory on September
10. says that the general assault on the
stronghold, which in some quarters it
was reported would occur on the tenth
did not take place. He declared that
the Russians are giving most of their
attention to the forts on the northeast,
line, which include Rihlungshan and
Kikwanshan. The Russian soldiers are
living on black bread and seldom got
soup. There are only a few head of
cattle in Port Arthur, and these are
reserved for the highest officials.
Hardly a day passed but what Lieu-
tenant General Stoessel, commander of
the Fort Arthur forces generally ac-
companied by General BalashofT, does
not ride over the entire line, having
alterations made here and giving sug-
gestions there and complimenting or
censuring his troops. His indefatigea-
ble effort and his composure do much
to sustain the spirits of the garrison
and this In spite of their hard fare
and the sleeplessness which results
from being continually on the qui
This Chinaman further says that the
Japanese have constructed a large fort
on the north shore of Pigeon bay, to
the west of Port Arthur, using many
Chinese laborers in the work. There
are sixteen large hospitals at Port Ar-
thur and field hospitals have been es-
tablished at every fort.
The preparations for resistance at
the northeast forts consist chiefly of
the construction of trenches and re-
doubts for the outposts.
The Japanese bombardment of the
tronghold continue intermittently ev-
ry day. On September 9, the Jap-
anese threw shells into Port Arthur,
one of which struck a church aud
killed a Chinaman.
STORM ON CHESAPEAKE BAY.
Much Damage Done and Boats Swept
Away and Lost.
Baltimore, Sept. 17.—Reports from
points down the Chesapeake bay indi-
cate that last night's storm was un-
precedented in its fury and long con-
tinuance. For nearly ten hours the
bay was swept by a rain and wind-
storm that for a time raged more
fiercely than any other storm in the
memory of the oldest Chesapeake
mariners. The storm was evidently
more severe farther down the bay
than at its head.
The storm played havoc with the
shipping in the northern part of the
bay particularly. The wharves at both
Betterton and Tolchester were par-
tially washed away, while sail boats,
steam launches ana all light craft
around Tolchester, Havre de Grace,
and Betterton were badly damaged.
In many cases the boats were washed
away and lost.
Great Council of Red Men.
St. Joseph, Mo., Sept. 17.—At the
session of the great council of Red
Men Nashville, Tenn., wis chosen as
the next meeting place for the great
Opiates for Bismark.
Friedrichsruhe, Sept. 17.—Prince
Herbert Bismark is suffering great
pain, which is being alleviated by the
aid of morphine.
IN SIX ROUND BOUT.
Jack O'Brien Had an Easy Time
Philadelphia, Sept. 10—Jack O'Brien
had an easy time of it in his six-
round bout with Hugo Kelly, of Chica-
go, at the National Athletic club. In
the first round Kelley staggered
O'Brien a couple of times with hard
punches to the stomach, and in the
second round shook up O'Brien with
hard hits to nose and stomach. Af-
ter that, however, it was all O'Brien's
fight. He hit Kelly at will and gave
him a severe trouncing. The Chica-
go man was badly beaten up. O'Brien
was none the worse from the bout.
TOTAL JAP ARMY.
Had 300,000 Men in the Field and 700
Mukden, Sept. 13.—Chinese reports,
which are partly confirmed by infor-
mation received by the Russians, are
to the effect that the Japanese at Liao
Vang had a total of 300,000 men with
700 guns. The rear guard consisted
Of 40,000 Koreans and 30,000 Japanese,
but as far as can be judged only a
portion of these participated in the
Bank Robber Killed.
Coshocton, O., Sept. 17.—Alve Riv-
srs was instantly killed while robbing
the bank at Warsaw last night. The
village marshal emptied a shot gun
into him. His two companions es-
:aped, but are being followed by a
Big Lumber Mill Fire.
Pine Bluff, Ark., Sept. 17.—B ire de-
stroyed the Sawyer & Austin plant,
one of the largest lumber mills in
Arkansas. The loss is estimated at
between $100,000 and $500,000, fully
covered by insurance.
Good Reason Why Subject of Time
Should Not Be Mentioned.
"It is my private opinion," said
Swellington, as he chanced to meet
Courtney on the street, "that that
man I.ewis is crazy."
"Be charitable," laughed Courtney.
"He has just been married."
"I don't care if ha has," stormed
Swellington. "That is no excuse for
him to abuse a man."
"What has he been doing?" asked
"Doing. I happened to leave mj
watch at home this morning, and,
chancing to meet Lewis on the street
a few mtnirtes ago, I stopped him and
asked him what time it was, and the
only answer that I received was a
string of abuse that would have
shocked a mule driver."
"I think I can explain It," gasped
Courtney after he had laughed to his
heart's content. "You see, Lewis was
married the other day. He was the
last one of his set to get married, and
his friends desired to have a little fun
with bim. When Lewis received an
invitation to a wedding, he invariably
sent a mantel clock as a wedding
present. Lewis and his mantel clock
got to be a standing joke among his
friends, and it was always looked for-
ward to, and he never disappointed
them. They were all alike, and the
idea got about that he bought then:
by the gross and kept them on hano
for an emergency.
"Well, when Lewis's cards were
sent out we got together and decided
to get even with uim by each one of
us sending him a mantel clock of the
same pattern. I don't know how many
he received, as the returns are not all
In yet, but as near as I can gather he
bas about four to each room, 'x oat
Is why it isn't safe to say anything
ibout time to I^ewis."
Husbands, Note This.
There are few right thinking per-
sons who would deny that business
men ought to confide in their wives,
fays the Pittsburg Press.
First of all, a woman cannot feel
tJiat her husband has given her his
whole heart when he keeps from her
the whole course of his business life.
No doubt, it is generally done from a
good motive. The husband thinks he
Is saving his wife worry and trouble,
but In most cases he is doing the ex-
act opposite, for every wife with right
feeling would gladly lessen her hus-
band's burdens by sharing them.
Nor does a sensible woman care for
the left-handed compliment that her
pretty head was not meant to bother
with figures. True marriage is a true
union In everything where all Is open,
and the griefs and the sorrows of each
are shared by both, and comfort drawn
from the mutual sympathy. A man
who does not confide in his wife de-
liberately shuts himself out from his

With a queer little squirm:

With an odd little shrug:

Said the third little chicken,
With a sharp little squeal:
"Oh. I wish I could find
Some nice yellow meal!"
Said the fourth little chicken,
With a small sich nf grief:
"Oh, I wish I could find
A little green leaf!"
Said the fifth little chicken.
With a faint little moan:
"Oh. I wish I could find
A wee gravel stone!"

Suffered Agonies from Kidney Dleor-

George W. Renoff, of 1953 North
11th St., Philadelphia, Pa., a man of
years ago 1 was
suffering so with
my back and kid-
neys that I often
had to lay off
The kidney secre-
| tions were unnat-
ural, my legs and
S swollen, and 1
had no appetite. Whwi doctors failed
to help me I began using Doan's Kid-
ney Pills and improved until my back
was strong and my appetite returned.
During the four years since I stopped
using them I have enjoyed excellent
health. The cure was permanent."

They Bathe in Starched Collars.
At one of the exclusive reports on
the Sound there is just now a rage
for high-necked bathing suits, says the
New York Press. The ordinary sailor
blouse is worn, but inside the low V-
ehaped neck the wearers insert a
"dicky" with a high collar, finished
with a lawn or embroidered turn-over.
The sight of this prim array of women
bathers in laundered turnovers—a
fresh one each morning, if you please
—is worth a walk to the bathing
grounds any day.
Fugitive Persian Princes.
Two Imperial princes, one the
brother and the other the second son
of the shah of Persia—uncle and
nephew being about the same age—
are in flight and have sought refuge
at Constantinople, where their extra-
dition is being demanded by the Per-
sian envoy. They are, it is said, im-
plicated in a plot upon the life of the
king of kings.
Author's Change of Name.
Joseph Conrad, who has made such
a reputation as a writer of sea stories,
is well known to be a Pole by birth,
but few of his many readers are
aware that his real name is Korzenl-
owski. This was such an awkward
mouthful to the world in general that
he adopted the more simple name by
which he Is generally known.
A Reminder of Wild Oats.
•••• I'roker once visited an
ancient English castle, the owner be-
ing absent at the time. The valet in
charge was generous with his infoi-
mation, and as a climax to the series
of interesting rooms opened a door
and disclosed a large number of bot-
tles, placed In perfect symmetry, aud
reaching to the lofty ceiling.
"A pyramid of empty bottles?" ex-
claimed the New Yorker. "What
does it mean?"
"My master comes In here occasion-
ally," said the guide softly, "to real-
ize what a gigantic ass he has made
of himself."—Portland Oregoniau.
Why They Do Nrt SpeaV.
"Good morning. Miss Swoetlelgh!"
cried Cholly Sparkers to the fair dam-
sel of his acquaintance whom be had
just met; "pray what brings you out
so early in the day?"
"Oh, I've just been to the photog-
rapher's with my pet pug Pansy, and
we have had our portraits taken to-
gether, haven't we, dear? Beauty and
the beast, you know," sho added, with
a saucy little laugh.
"And what a little beauty ho is, to
be sure," replied Johnson, as he ten-
derly stroked poor Pansy's cranium.
Then he suddenly coughed, went red.
and tried to oxplain. But she turned
away, leaving him to become hoi and
cold in turn; and thus they parted—
strangers for evermore.

Every housekeeper should know
that if they will buy Defiance Cold
Water Starch for laundry use they
will save not only time, because it
never sticks to the iron, but because
each package contains 16 oz.—one full
pound—while all other Cold Water
Starches are put up in %-pound pack-
ages, and the price Is the same, 10
cents. Then again because Defiance
Starch is free from all injurious chem-
icals. If your grocer tries to sell you a
12-oz. package it is because he has
a stock on hand which he wishes to
dispose of before he puts In Defiance.
He knows that Defiance Starch has
printed on every package in large let-
ters and figures "16 ozs." Demand
Defiance and save much time and
money and the annoyance of the iron
■ticking. Defiance never sticks.
