Eczema is caused by aa acid humor in

skin and producing great redness and in

and discharge a Ihin, sticky fluid, which
dries ar.d scales off; sometimes thc skin is
hard, dry and fissured. Eczema ia any

ken care of by the Association and still
more, who can do a little to help them?
selves or have slender incomes of thelr
own, aro aided" in the effort to make er.ds
Thousancfcs of dollars have been ex
pended in this way, anu the object of

The Home for the .c-ged- is an Institu?
tion in which much pride Is takun. It
is a charity that must appeal to every
heart, for it spreads out Its protecting
arms o^ ;r the weak and helpless in the
days that must seem dark indeed, after
life's journey has all but been fulfiiled,
and the flnal summons is awaited with
patience and reslgnation amongst the
rinns cf fallen hopes.
The obliteration of sectarian lines in
the appeal that is being made to the
pubiic brings with it the real privilege
of pcrmission to contribute to so worthy
and appealing a charity.

Some Facts Itejjardinj: the Rapid In?
crease of H<-nrt Tmubln.
Heart troubles, at least among the
Americans, are certainly increaslng and
while this may he largely due to the ex?
citement and worry of American busi?
ness life, it is more often the result of
weak stornachs, of poor digestion.
Real organio disease is incurabie, but
not one case in a hundred of heart trou?
ble is organic.
The close relatiom between heart trou?
ble and- poor digestion is because both
organs are i controlled by the same great
nerves, the Sympathetic and Pneumogas
In another way. also the heart is -?*?
ferted by the form cf poor digestion,
which causes gas and fermentation frfcm
half digested food. There is a feeling
of oppression aud heaviness in the chest
caused by pressure of the distended
stomach on the heart ahd lungs, inter
fering with thelr action, hence arises pal
pitation and short breath.
Poor digestion also poisons the blood,
making it thin and watery, which irrl
tates and weakens the heart.
The most senslble treatment for heart
trodble is to improve the digestion and to
insure the prompt assimilation of food.
' This can be done by the reguiar use
after meals of some safe, pleasant and
effective dlgestive preparation, like
Staurt's Dyspepsia Tablets, "which may be
found) at most drug stores, and which
contaln valuable, harmless digestive ele
ments in a pleasant, convenient form.
lt is safe to say that tho reguiar per
sistent use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
at meal time will cure any form of stom?
ach trouble except cancer of the stomach.

the convention adjourn to-day, to meet
November 7th, and adjourn without pay
Dr. Mcllwaine said he was opposed to
any such thing. The convention seemed
to him to have been. trifling for some
time. He thought a better thing to do
was to cancel every leave of absence
that had just been g-rantee. He moved to
amend Mr. Meredith's motion to the ef?
fect that all leaves of absence be can
Mr. MerecTith replied by saying the
members had been here ever since August
26th, and had been attending excluslvely
to public duties. The proposition to take
a recess was not unreasonable when
members saw that the expense to the
State was stopped.
Many members here were called upon
to attend the courts and protect tho in?
terests of their clients. There was no
chance, in view of the numerous leaves
of absence just granted, of having a
quorum to work with next week.
The chair ruled that Dr. Mellwaine's
motion was out o'f order.
Mr. Thom strongiy oposed the motion
to adjourn to-day. He said it would sub?
ject the convention to unjust cr.ticism for
it to adjourn until there was no more

the leaves of absence, and in the event
of a lack of a quorum he should favor
sending for absent members and com

should have the right to wasive a jury
..na only difference in this amendment
and the one so thoroughly debated Friday
is that murder cases are excepted. Mr.
Waddiil made a strong argument for the
amendment, the reasons being neces
sarily the ones advanced by advocates of
the other amendment Friday. He ciaimed
that, without this amendment, the law, as
amended by the committee, was in a
worse shape now than it was under ex

Mr. Braxton in opposition to the amend?

was rejected Friday. His speech was

Walker moved to strike from seetion
eight all authority for an appeal of the
Commonwealth in revenue cases. This
amendment was debated by Messrs. Wal?
ker. Hunton and Turnbull.
Mr. Walker argued that it was incon
sistent to say a man should not be put
twice in jeopardy. and then proceeded
to make an exception in revenue cases.
Mr. Hunton opposed it on the ground
that if it was struck out the State would
be unable to collect any revenue in many

Mr. Braxton offered a substitute allow
ing a jury of less than twelve, by con
sent of both parties, and allowing a ma
joritv verdict in all civil cases, with
power allowed to the General Assembly
to change the majority rule after 1905. He

Mr. Braxton was speaking again. Judge
Green called his attention to his promise

object to loquacity in other members. The
quickest way to dispese of me is to let
me alone until I get through."

argurnent In support of his substitute,
and was not so brief in his remarks as at
Iirst. He showed how many States had
adopted the majority rule, and iliustrated
by a great number of hung juries the
evils of the unanimous verdict. The hour
! of one having arrived during Mr. Breuc
j ton's speech, Chairman Goode announced
j that the convention would take a recess
| until 3 o'clock. Mr. Braxton will conclude
his speech then. although he said he
would complete it ln a few minutes.
The convention reassembled at 3 o'clock.
I A motion was made to adjourn. .Mr.
! Braxton said if they would give him ten
I minutes he would promise to conclude
i his sticech by the clock.
Colonel Smith said he was anxlous to
! hear it, but when the time came to taKo
a vote the fact would be developed) tbat
a quorum was not present and tne coa
i vention hadi just as well adjourn now.
! Judge Green, chairman of the commit?
tee, begged Colonel Smith to withdraw
I his motion. Tliis was done, and Mr.
I Braxton proceeded to conclude his ar
i g'uinenit, begun at the morning session.
He read from a long list of States
! which had authorlzed majority verdictF,
and said it could be generally understooca
that the large corporations would ai
; ways oppose this reform. He there read)
j extracts from the Law Register to em
| phasize this statement.
Judge Bouldin made a strong speech
in favor of the ancieat right of trial By
jury and regretted exceedingly that the
convention had decided to allow a jury
of less than twelve under any clrcum
stances. As that had been done, he most
earnestly objected to any further change.
To establish the majority verdict would
in effect destroy the' whole jury system.
He quoted largely from Mr. Choate's ad?
dress before the New York Bar Associa?
tion in conftrmation of this view. He
said that hung juries often prevented a
miscarriage of justice. Judge Bouldln
dinivd that corporations would alone be
injured) bv the majority verdicts.
He related several instances where
prejudice against corporations had done
injustice, even in unanimous verdicts.
There was quite a colloquy here between
the speaker and- Mr. Braxton. Judge
Bouldin concluded in a most earnest ap?
peal for the retention of the unanimity
Colonel PetUt made a speech in opposi?
tion to the amendment. He urged that
under the present system a judge could
set aside a verdict when twelve men
agreed with unanimity, and If a major?
ity verdict were allowed the judge could
well say that the minority was right,
and could set aside every verdict they
saw fit. He declared that the adoption
of the amendment would revolutionize
the wholo jurisprudence In the Common
Judge Anderson said he did not rise to
make a speech because every speech
made to-day were the same ones tbat
had been made in the Committee of the
Whole. He went on to show that the
list of States read by Mr. Braxton as
having adoptedi the majority rule was
inaccurate. He contended that almost
every one of them had repealed the law,
leaving only nine States now as having
it- There was another colloquy here t>e
tween the speaker and -ur. Braxton.
The vote was taken. Mr. Eraxton called
for the yeas and nays. The roll-call
showed: Yeas, 11; nays. 33.
NO QUORUM PRESENT.
The president announced that a quorum
was not present. Mr. Gordon moved that
the convention adjourn. The moUon was
carried by a viva voce vote, but the yeas
and nays were demandtd, with the fol?
lowing result: Yeas, 11; nays. 39. Mem?
