A Good Blood Purifier a Neces
Hood's Sarsaparilla Unequalled for
Making Rich, Red Blood. $
The necessity for taking a good Spimg
Medicine to purify the blood and build up
the system is based upon natural and un
avoidable causes. In cold weather there
has been less perspiration and impurities
have not passed out of the system as they
should. Food has consisted largely of
rich, fatty substances, and there has been
less opportunity for outdoor exercise.
The result is, the blood is loaded with im
purities and these must be promptly ex
pelled or health will be endangered.
Hood's Sarsaparilla is the best Spring
Medicine because it is the best blood
purifier and tonic. It thoroughly purifies
the blood and gives vigor and vitality.

Evaxsviixe, Ind., April 4. At 6
o'clock last evening1 the levee at Shaw

Shawnee town is seventy -five miles

It is situated in a valley of extremely

The town is very much in the position
of a fortified city, and when the levee
gave way a mile above town, under
the pressure of the very high river,
the water shot through a twenty -foot
opening and struck the place like a
hurricane, sweeping everything be
Houses were turned and tossed
about like boxes. The people were
not warned of the break, and for that
reason many were caught. Those at
home sought ref age in second stories
and on housetops. Those in the
streets were carried before the ava
lanche of water, and probably a ma
jority were drowned.
Citizens came from the place by
skiffs to a telephone several miles
away and asked for aid from Evans
ville. They said that more than 200
people were drowned, and they had
reason to believe it would reach 500
or even 1 ,000.
The water stands from twenty to

until the guns actually open fire, and
my faith i. still strong that war, with
all its horrors, can be avoided. Enough
blood has been shed in Cuba already,
and I cannot believe the closing

be reddened by a conflict between
Spain and the United States. My

faith that Spain will yet do what is

And with justice, peace is certaid."

DUEL TO THE DEATH.
Waco, Texas, April 4. In the midst
of busy preparations for city election
meetings, while bands were playinjr
and scattering handbills from their
decorated vans, calling the people to

Iconoclast, and Captain M. T. Davis

The combatants met just at 6 o'clock
last evening, on South Fourth street,
in front of the Cotton Belt ticket of

words, both began emptying their
revolvers into each other's body.
When the battle was over, Brann

gene Kepler in the foot The wild
bullet wounds are not serious. Kep
ler and his partner, Prince, are tour
ing the-world on a wager, and had
just reached Waco.
The difficulty between the two men
grew out of the Brann-Baylor feud of
last year. Captain Davis' daughters
are pupils of Baylor university, and
the references made in the Iconaclast
to Baylor, which were generally con
strued to mean reflections on the
moral character of the pupils and
faculty, brought forth from Captain
Davis a denunciation of Brann, de

It was often predicted that when
the apostle, Brann, and Captain Davis
met, there would be bloodshed, Cap

ready on all occasions to express him

against Baylor university wounded
him deeply, and he took every occa

FAR FROM PORTO RICO.
Spanish Torpedo Flotilla Has Hardly
Started Across the Atlantic.
MajjRID, April . The statement
cabled last night that the torpedo flo

Rico was taken from a newspaper
Investigation shows the announce
ment to be erroneous. The Spanish
flotilla has arrived at the Cape Verd
islands, off the coast of Africa, and it
is said will proceed after coaling.
As it has taken the Spanish torpedo
flotilla nine days to make the Cape
Verd islands from the Canary islands,
which they left Mareh 24, it should,
going at about the same rate of speed,
take the flotilla about twenty-six dayjj
from now to reach Porto Rico from
the Cape Verd islands. This is under
the supposition that the flotilla will

Shanghai, April 4. It is announced
that a person of the highest rank haa
memorialized the emperor in the most
vigorous language, accusing the whole

Office) of being in the pay of Russia.

the personage referred to demands a

Letters to lars. Pinkham From Women Who Have Been Helped Iran
Sickness or Health.
The ordinary every-day life of mostof our women is a ceaseless treadmill of work.
How much harder the daily tasks become when some derangement of the
female organs makes every movement
keeps the nervous system unstrung!
The following letter from Mrs. Walter
Sparkill, N. Y., tells the story of many
and shows them how to get relief:
"DeakMks. Pixkham: I cannot thank
enough for all Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has done for me. When I wrote to
you I had suffered for years with falling, in
flammation and ulceration ox tne womo;
my back ached, and I was so much
distressed I could scarcely walk. I
was a burden to myself and did not
care whether I lived or died.
"I have taken five bottles of your
medicine and it has done wonders for
me is all my friends can testify. I can
now do my own work, and do not know
how to express my gratitude to you for
the good your medicine and advice
have done me. I owe my life to Mrs.
Mrs. Pinkham's counselisoffered free
to all women who need advice about
their health. Her address is Lynn,
Mass. Mrs. P. II. IIutciicboft, Kel
lerton, Iowa, tells here in her own
words how Mrs. Pinkham helped her:
"Dear Mrs. Pixkiiam: I was in a
very bad condition before I wrote to
you and began the use of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. I
didnotknowwhattodo. I suffered
riiTT'i'hl-tr everv month, when on mv
feet would have such a bearing-down feeling, was very weak, womb was
swollen, back ached, appetite was very poor, also had trouble with my head.
I have taken several bottles of your Compound and cannot say enough in its
favor. It helped more than all the doctors."
