What Makes JA Woman?
One hundred and twenty pounds,
more or less, of bone and muscle
don't make a woman. Its a good
foundation. Put into it health and
strength and she may rule a king
dom. But that's just what Electric
Bitters gave her. Thousands bless
them for overcoming fainting and
dizzy spells and for dispelling weak
ness, nervousness, backache and
tired, listless, worn out feeling.
Electric Bitters have done me a
world of good, writes Eliza Pool,
Depew, Okla., "and I thank you,
with all my heart, for making such
a good medicine." Only 50c. Guar

"The Star Spangled Banner."
Special to The Advertiser.
Baltimore, June 28.-The reper
toire of the convention orchestra,
which consists of forty or more in
struments, seems to be practically
unlimited, but, with the possible
exception of "Dixie," two selections,
which have more or less of local in,
terest attached, "Maryland, my
Maryland" and "The Star Spangled
Banner," meet with heartiest res
ponses from the audience of over
15,000 souls. Since coming to Bal
timore and Beeing Fort McHenry,
where was laid the scene which in
spired theimmortal"The Star Spang
led Banner'' my intei est in it has been
greatly accentuated. It may not be
amiss in this connectio n to refresh
the memories of The Advertiser's
readers as to its origen. As everyone
knows, the author is Francis Scott
Key, a patriotic young lawyer who
was endowed with poetic gifts. Mr.
Key was commissioned by the United
States government to secure the re
lease of an American physician who
had been seized during the war of
1812 by the British and held a
prisoner on one of their vessels un
der sentence of death. Armed with
the necessary papers from tho sec
retary of state, Mr. Key, carrying
a flag of truce for protection, went
aboard the British vessel, which
was out some distance from the Bal
ti. ore harbor. As the Briti&h had
previously planned an attack upon
the city, Mr. Key was detained by
the enemy, lest his return interfere
with their plans.
The enemy commanded Fort Mc
Henry from early morning till late
in the afternoon and under cover of
darkness made an attempt to enter
the city, but was repulsed .by the
vigorous fire from the fort. From
the deck of the vessel in the early
watches of the following morning,
Francis Scott Key, then himself a
prisoner of the British, saw the
American flag still waving over the
fort, and the scenes inspired the
immortal lines. They were written
by him upon an old envelope, which,
I have been informed, is preserved
to this day.
In Eutaw Place, on the highest
point in Baltimore, just in front of
the Hotel Altamont, where we of
South Carolina are stopping, stands
a fitting monument to Francis Scott
Key. On the south side chiseled in
marble ia the scene of the attack
by the British vessels and on the
north side is the scene of the crude
fort returning the attack.
I witnessed a very beautiful and
altogether inspiring sight yesterday
afternoon while on our way out to
visit the battleship South Carolina.
As we passed Fort McHenry over
which waved the American flag (but
containing moro stars than when
Key saw it) a party of a hundred or
more near us on a little excursion
craft sang "The Star-spangled Ban
ner." As the fort echoed the strains
of the chorus the old flag that was
unfurled above seemed, as it were,
to catch the spirit, waving patriotic
greetings in return.

the Baptist church at which time

terested spectators, many friends,
acquaintances and relatives of the
bride and groom, and the simple
and artistically arranged decora
tions with green and white color
scheme, was very generally remark
ed, by thos6jjj|jbaving discriminating
taste. Th?*"' festooning was all
white, covered with real asparagus
fern, and magnificent pot plants
and palms adorned the altar and
gave dignity to the scene.
A number of out-of-town visi
tors were presentat the church wed
ding and afterwards at the brilliant
reception at the handsome colonial
home. At the close of the ceremo
ny many invited guests repaired to
this scene of several pleasant hours,
where the happy pair received con
gratulations in the spacious draw

piaft? . enjoyed refreshing fruit
punch. A very elaborate salad
course was served and ice cream
with cake, carrying out the pink
and white color designs.

atable on which was placed a large
and beautiful arrangement of Amer
ican Beauly roses, with bonbon
disher containing mints at intervals
on the table.
In auother apartment, were the I
presents which were the centre of
attraction fora portion of the time,
as is always the case on such occa
sions. These were numerous and
beautiful, being of cut glass, silver
and many handsome pieces of hand
painted china. A chest of silver
was a specially striking gift, hav
ing come from the parents of the
bride Mr. and Mrs. 0. Sheppard.
Various other tokens of esteem

articles of valuable linen.

Baltimore, June 29.- Some of
the foremost celebrities of the coun

vention. AV hile this applies par
ticularly to those who are in the
public eye because of achievements
in politics and statecraft, yet it also
applies to those who have gathered

Seated in the press gallery last
night, surrounded by the most alert
and most efficient newspaper re
porters that this or any other coun
try affords, was Arthur Brisbane,
the editor-in-chief of Hearst's New
York papers. It is generally conced
ed that Mr. Brisbane is the ableet
editorial writer of his time. Mr.
Hearst must think so or he would
not pay him a salary of $50,000,.

Another conspicuous personage
in the press gallery, just to the rear
of Mr. Brisbane, was Elbert Hub

unique in personal appearance as he
is in his Intellectual life. Like Var

A third individual who occupies
a prominent seat among the other
reporters in the press gallery is
Dorothy Dix. She writes for ber
own news syndicate selling her
matter to such newspapers and
magazines as want it, and her fame
is now so well established that a
great number purchase it at good
prices. Judging from the character
and style of her writing I had pic
tured her as just passing out of her
teens, whereas in reality she is easily
double that number of years. A
gentleman sitting near me, a resi
dent of northern Maryland, who
knows her personally, said she is a
great hunter and a crack shot. She
visited his town some months ago
with a hunting party, several ladies
being along, dressed decidedly iran
Seated down a short distance
from the press gallery last night
with Mayor Preston of Baltimore
was William E. Hearst, possibly in
a way the greatest newspaper pub
