College of Virginia: " If I were asked what mineral water has the widest range
of usefulness, I would unhesitatingly answer, BUFFALO LITHIA. la Uric
Acid Diathesis, Gout, Rheumatism, Lithxmia, and the like, its beneficial
effects are prompt and lasting. Almost any case of Pyelitis and
Cystitis will bo alleviated by It, and many cured. I have had evidence of

TROUBLE IS STILL BHEWUfG.
Antl-Bartholdt Men Threaten to "Stir
All the troubles of the Republicans in tne
Tenth Congressional District are not over.
Some of tht antl-Bartholdt men have dis
covered that tne new election law was not
followed In the proceedings of tbe conven
tion held last Monday, and assert that they
will "stir up something" In a few days.
Section 22 of the election law governing
St. Louis reads as follows: Before enter
ing upon their duties, the temporary and
permanent chairman of every convention,
and the chairman of any committee on
contested seats therein, snail respectively
take an oath to faithfully perform the du
ties of their offices, which oath may be
taken before any ofilcer authorized by law
to administer an oath, and shall form a
part of and be filed with the records of the
This provision was not observed in the
convention which nominated Congressman
Bartholdt. Otto F. Stlfel acted as tem
porary and permanent chairman and took
no oath. According to the' law, this neg
lect may be reviewed by the courts in man
damus proceedings, or by a writ of certio
rari upon complaint of a qualified voter.
Whether this will come up in tho courts
remains to be seen. Opponents of Bar
tholdt say that if there Is a chance to undo
the work of the convention because of this
oversight, proceedings will be Instituted.

DOWIE BROKE DOWN AT GRAVE.
Grief-Stricken Over Untiiuclv
Deatli of nis Daughter.
Chicago, 111.. Jlay 16. Grief-stricken
over the untimely death of his only daugh
ter, Fisther, John Alexander Dowle broke
down and sobbed convulsively to-day during-
his conduct ot the funeral service. The
Immense audience of his followers gave
lllte expression of their sorrow and a pa
thetically dramatic scene followed.
From the time the funeral cortepe left
tho home In this city until the body was
Interred In the Dowle Cemetery the first
to be committed there tho believers In tha
creed of "Elijah the Restorer" seemed to be
awed by the calamity that had befaUea
Several thousand persons attended tho
service here and at Zlon City. In tho
tabernacle at the latter place, the white
robed choir of COO chanted apprlpriate music.
The ceremony was a simple one and was
attended with no unusual feature save tha
eeneral manifestation of sympathy and sor
row. There Is growing Interest In the ex
planation which Dowle Is expected to make
of his calling a physician to administer to
his daughter In her dying hours.
HARMONY EXPEtrTKD TO FOLLOW.
Factional Democratic Commltteen Are
to Get ToKether at Kaus City.
Kansas City, Mo., May 1C The flnal meet
ing of the subcommittees appointed to har
monize the difference between the rival
Democratic County committees wUl be held
to-morrow. A programme Is scheduled to
end the quarrels and result In a harmoni
ous union of the long-quarreling factions.
The conference Is to order one convention
to select delegates to the two State con
ventions and nominate a county ticket at
the same time. Such a convention would
name the new county committee and the
county ticket . . .
If there should be a split the State Con
Tentlon would settle which delegation was
legally elected and virtually settle the ques
tion for the county tickets, though, of
course, an appeal could go to the supreme
Court, as It did before. Vii
There is only one serious stumbling block.
It is the county primary law passed by the
last Legislature, livery lawjci v . ...
county committees Is hunting for a way to
get out of following the law. One plan is
to have the primaries neld under the Elec
tion Commissioners and another Is to let
the subcommittees now In existence take
charge and run the primary In the old way,
without regard to the law.

LECTURES ON TRIP
AROUND THE WORLD.
Daniel C. Kugent Interests Large
Audience at the Young Men's
Daniel C. Nugent last night entertained a
large audience at Young lien's Sodality
Hall, corner of Grand and Laclede aenues,
by a repetition of hib lecture en "A Trip
Around the World "
The subject matter of the lecture was pro
cured by Mr. Nugent on his voyage around
the globe from San I'Yanclsco to New York,
by wny of the Sandwich Islands, Japan, and
Philippine Islands, China. India. Egypt and
Southern Europe. The Journey required al
most two years for Its completion, includ
ing stops made at nearly every place of
historic and natural interest In the Itiner
ary. In the course of the trip Mr. Nugent
secured several hundred photographs of the
Inhabitants, cities, landscapes, temples,
hobses and other notable objects of the va
rious lands through which he traveled.
These pictures were reproduced by means
of a stereopticon, to illustrate his lecture.
The views that proved most Interesting to
his auditors, judging from the applause,
were the wreck of the Spanish vessel Reina
Cristlna. destroyed by Admiral Dewey at
the battle of Manila, and scenes around St.
Peter's1 at Home. Between those pictures,
however, were faithful reproductions of the
famous bronze figure of Buddha, In Japan;
the temples and tombs of Delhi and the
ruins of Egyptian cities.
Mr. Nugent told of his having received
an answer from a note placed in a bottla
by his little son and dropped Into the In
dian Ocean while on the wny to Madras,
India. Four months after consigning tha
mltsive to the water it was found, Mr. Nu
gent said, by a British Consul In British
East Africa, almost 5.000 miles from the
place In which It fell. The Consul's letter
Inclosing the note reached St. Louis In tha
absence of Mr. Nugent and hi family.
At intervals members of the ioutig Men s
Institute, under whose nuspiccs the lecture
was given, rendered piano solos.
