As was stated in the.-o columns several
weeks nco. there is a decided Increase in
the amount of building- Kclns on. August
permits show a material gain as regards
cost over those of 1S3. the respective to
tals beins 62S.3W and Jl 11.-21. Unless ap
pearances nre deceptive, this Increase Is
likelv to continue. Not only Is there amplP
scope for new bulldinc. but the supply of
houses and flats for renting punioses Is far
below the demand. St. Louis has not for
years been so closely rented up ns now,
and, with a great International exposition
ahead, it will be surprising if a wonderful
development in building is not soon In evi
dence. Angry Property 4vncr.
Clark Kretchmar of 4iC0 I'age boulevard Ii
not DroDOtimr to build a tDlUhoUse on Mc
Millan avenue, but he is endeavoring to
move to the choice residence street wh.u
remains of a burnt frame structure recent
ly purchased by him after the lire for a
song. Besides this, he U apparently
without proper authority, as the
actln? without nrnn
Building De;iartment has granted him no
permit, while the property-owners on Mc
Millan avenue are bitterly opposing the In
vasion. Mr. Krehlman, It 1 sjI.1. has a per
mit from Mayor Zlegenhein. hut the angry
opposition Insists that even the one-camlle-powor
Mayor has no right to override the
requirements of the law and the wishes of
the taxpayers concerned.
A meeting of McMillan avenue prporety
owners was held t the Real Estate Ex
change on Friday afternoon. Henry L. Cor
net presided, and Sidney Schiele was sec
retary. Among thop present wero: James
Cox. Moses N. Sale. James 1'. Brady. Frank
Bergs. Joseph E. McGlnnls. Louis Stumpf.
Mrs. Laura E. Scott. W. H. Scott. D. C.
Dyer and Given Campbell. These are citi
zens of standing, and many of them own
beautiful homes ou the street, toward which
Mr. Kretchmar's "shack" Is, or was. being
slowly hauled for, owing to the protest
made, the Building Department has ordered
the hauling process stopped until the case
Is settled. Tho feeling at the meeting was
Intense. Mr. Kretchmar desired to bo
heard, but he had not been Invited to rt
tend. Asd tho meeting had no desire to hear
from him. A committee of ttree Messrs.
Hy. I.. Cornet Jouls Stumpf and SI. N.
Sale was appointed to wnlt on the Stayor
and ask that the permit referred to tie re
voked. If necessary the committee will In
stitute injunction proceedings.
In the meantime Mr. Kretchmar seems to
be between tho devil and the deep, blue sea.
The cause of the trouble Is on rollers, and
on other people's property, and as Interven
ing property-owners vow they will not allow
It to traverse their land. It Is not easy to
see how, under any circumstances, the
wreck can reach the lot owned by Mr.
Kretchmar. 450 feet west of Taylor an Mc
Sillan avenue. Sir. Kretchmar's idea was
to build an addition to the "burnt lumber
pile." have It painted up nicely and occupy
It as a home.

Hall Is perfecting plans to erect another

As to Light,
Soma months ago, when, by reason of
the willful negligence of the Sluniclpal As
sembly, SL Louis was menaced by a season
of total darkness, the real estate men took
decisive action. A mass meeting held on
'change adjourned to meet next day In tho
Chamber of the Hoi-so of Delegates and
demanded the closing of temporary con
tracts. The result is a matter of history.
Contracts wero made and the danger was
To-day a very largo portion of the resi
dence district of the city Is In darkness,
and. while tho blame Is primarily due to
the same sources ns before, an Intense feel
ing exists against the old lighting company,
which has declined to till the temporary
gap caused by the Impossibility of getting
new lights in position In so short a time.
On Realty Row agents are outspoken.
"It Is an outrage," said Joseph I. Whyte
yesterday, "and tho people should not sub

"Bill" Carey Suddenly Becomes a
Person it Importance
SECOND SON OF A NOBLE.
Death of His Older Brother En
titles the Man Who Long Kept
His Family Affairs Secret
to Half a Million.
Centralia. 111., Sept. S. W. L. D. Carey,
known to Centralia people a3 "Bill" Carey,
left here last night accompanied by his
son. Clarence Carey, of East St. Louis, for
the Isle of Slan to tako possession of his
father's estate at that place. Sir. Carey
and his family have been entirely too un
communicative about their affairs to suit
Centralia people for many years, and they
nro doing no raoro talking now.
The story, as it ls understood here. Is a
simple one. Sir. Carey was the second son
of an English noble nnd came to this
country a number of years ago to make
his own way. He was married here, and
always made a living.
During his Centralia residence, he was a
mall clerk for a number of years, and for
a time conducted a grocery store. Later he
went Into the commission and produce busi
ness, nnd made money.
Then It aprenrs there was an unpleasant
ness In his family, and he went to Chicago
and connected himself with a commission
house there, and has been traveling in that
line of business for many years.
His wife and children held this place as
their home. His two sons, Clarence and
George, went Into tha service of the Illi
nois Central Railroad as clerks, and be
came located at East St. Louis and Chi
cago. One daughter died In Chicago. Sliss
Eva Carey, prominent in local society, re
mained here with her mother. Tho family
received a monthly allowanco from the fa
ther of Sir. Carey.
W. L. D. Carey was the second son, and
not a great part of tho estato was ex
pected for him, but some time ago the
eldest son died, and last month the father
died. A week or so ago. Sir. Carey cumo
down from Chicago, and visited at tho
homo of bis family until his ton. Clarence,
who has once Visited his grandfather's es
tate, came over from East St. Louis, to
go to England with his father.
Sir. Carey ls heir. It now appears, to about
Sir. Carey contented himself by telling
nn old friend that the fortune would bo
enough for him to "have a tlmo and tako
things easy for the rest of his life," and
that tho boys would not have to work any
WEEKLY BANK STATEMENT.
Now Hold ?2C,03C,250 in Excess of
25 Per Cent Rule Requirement.
New York, Sept. 8. The weekly bank
statement for llvo days shows the following
Surplus, reserve decreased $1.022. 225
Loans, increased l.tSO.UM
Specie, Increased 2.287.50-)
Legal tenders, decreased 2.711. KO
Deposits, Increased 2.7DI.5IO
Circulation, Increased I04.HO
The banks now hold $26,055,250 in excess of
the requirements of the 25 per cent rule.
The Financier says:
"The statement of the Associated Banks
of New York for the week ending Septem
ber 8 reflects a somewhat greater degree e)f
business activity, both in the matter of lo
cal commercial loans and with the Interior.
For the first tlmo In a long period, tha
bankB have received less money than they
have forwarded to Western and Southern
points. They gained, it Is true, as a result
of transacUons with tho subtreasury, but
the s)stem of averages employed does not
show the exact balance and tha various In
stitutions probably hold more money than
the totals Indicate. Tho reported lots of
cash holdings ls small, amounting to $323,0.0.
but this, combined with the extra reserve
necessitated by tho expansion of $2,734,500
deposits, decreased tne surplus a little more
than one million dollars, bringing tho total
to $26,056,250. which ls very much higher
than at the corresponding periods over sev
eral years past.
"The gain of $1.05!).O0O In loans was rather
larger than antlclpate-d. The present volume
or tne loan item, amounting to nearjy u.
000,000. Is the highest of the year, and, as
any addition must necessarily enlaree de
posits, and, therefore. Increase reserve re
quirement. It will be seen that this, com
bined with a withdrawal of money to the
interior, must operate in tha direction of
lowering the surplus reserve rapidly.
"Tho principal point of Interest Just at
present Is the estimated requirement for
crop-moving purposes. Careful inquiry ex
tending over large areas of territory leads
to the impression that the drain on New
York this yenr will be less than usual, ow
ing to the abundance of money at other
centers, but for all that bankers of long
experience are cautious In Indorsing this
opinion. One factor thnt Is to be taken Into
consideration Is the doubling of the circu
lation by national banks at this center. It
Is expected that this money will bo used
largely In Interior remittances, and the ef
fect will be to furnish a great deal of cur
rency without a radical reduction In re
serves, nnd the country has to-day nearly
or quite JfWWAl of national bank cur
rency moro than a yenr aso, and there Is
no question that it ls to play an Important
part In the fall business now at hand."

CAUSE OF DISEASE.
Why Do Other Doctors Fail? They
Try to Cure the Effects of Dis

Case, Finds the Cause, Removes
It, and Nature Then Removes
the Effects of the Disease.

Other doctors confess that they cannot
cure the cases which Dr. King does cure.
"Dr. King cured me, and I believe that
he can cure you. I tried other doctors, but
they failed to cure. They seemed to care
more about my money than my case."
This ls what Dr. King's patients say.
They tell this to their friends, and in this
way one patient brings many others to "the
doctor who cures."
Dr. King has frequently been offered
thousands of dollars for the use of his
formulas by other physicians, but he has
always refused because In unskillful hands
even his remedies would fall to cure. Ills
method Is his own, and so long as he lives
It will be administered only under his di
rection. All of Dr. King's medicines nre prepared
In his own laboratories, under his personal
direction, ana ne spares no expense in or
der to procure the purest and best drugs,
and makes no charge for medicine furnished
He treats every patient to cure him, and
not to keep him along from month to
month for the sake of the monthly fee.
DR. KIXGS INFALLIBLE DIAGNOSIS.
There are two things essential with Dr.
FIRST Power of diagnosis.
SECOND Knowledge of the proper
methods to apply for the counteracting of
The first of these ls very near akin to
the genius of the artist and the poet. It
must be born in a man. Without this
ability to locate a disease and tell its con
dition, the physician ls always working In
the dark, ana his practice Is little more
than one of experiment. Slen like this are
dangerous to health; It would be far better
usually to let nature take her course.
The keen Instinct of an Indian hunter
sees a score of signs of a trail that the
white man would pass by unnoticed. So
it ls with the expert diagnostician. The
symptoms, often very slight, that other
fihysicians fall to notice, mean to him the
leglnning or the progress of disease. And
this ls why there ore great specialists, and
this also is the reason, because of tho lack
of this Inborn ability, that so many fall
It is this power of diagnosis, this ability
to tell Immediately the nature of a dis
ease, that has placed Dr. Nathaniel K. King
at the head of his profession In his spe
cialty. It was thought by many several years
ago. when the X Rays were first discovered,
that they could be used to advantage In
ths diagnosis of disease, but as Dr. King
pointed out nt that time these expecta
tions have never been realized and they
never will be. The X Rays will not show
the minute cells, the surfaces of the deli
cate tissues, the microscopic germs of dis
ease, the poisonous gases, etc. Who will
claim that Uric Acid or any other poison
ous substances In tha blood can ba de
tected by the X RaysT
Dr. King's diagnosis ls Infallible. He
makes no experiments. When he treats a
case he treats It for the diseased condition
which exists. This ls why he cures: this Is
why his cures como about so speedily; this
is why his cures are permanent.
WEAKENED MANLY Fl'XCTIONS-

condition of mental and bodily weakness
brought about by youthful Ignorance nnd
folly or by excesses In later life ls unlike

used by some so-called specialists, remedy

belt concerns, simply a stimulant, which
nets for a few days and then leaves the
poor, deluded pattent In worse condition

acts on every weakened portion of the body.
It bulids up nerve tissue and muscular
strength and revitalizes the whole body.
