The. curator had a plan' and he. called
for an \ extra fat snake pill. T When the
stuffed snake appeared it -was distended
to the bursting point. In more than a
month the cobra had not touched food.
Mr. Dltmars summoned five keepers,
armed himself with a surgeon's pincers,
and proceeded to the attack. Through a
circular aperture, protected with a slldel
the snake pill was threaded. The hungry
snake took hold of It at once. Frequently 1
she stopped. In evident pain, but each time
she resumed uritil the long, black thing
was half-way down her throat. ''
This was the moment to act. The door
was ; thrown open and before the cobra
could disgorge, herself to fight, she was
seized by the head and throat, while other
hands grasped her body and tall. Then
the mouth' was forced wide apart, while
the pincers did their work, and the finest
specimen of cobra in captivity was thus
saved to the collection.— McClure's.
A remarkable feat of snake surgery took
place recently In tho New York Zoological
Park under Curator Dltmars. Nalgina, a
splendid 10-foot king cobra had developed
an abscess next to one of her poison
fangs, and unless this were removed she
would die. • To capture the dangerous rep
tile, to force her jaws apart, and to cut
the abscess, was the problem.

" LOS ANGELES, Sept. 12.— Manager J.
F. Morley /of the Los Angeles Baseball
Association eaid to-day regarding the ac
tion of the National Association of Minor
BasebalJ Leagues in assigning Pitchers
Newton and Corbett to Brooklyn: "We
have something to say .about this. The
action of the National Association will
not aiTect Corbett and Newton as long as
they want to play in this league. This
Association of Minor Leagues has to
come to us. and any action they may
take in arbjtrarily assigning players now
in the Los Angeles Club will cut no fig

I hope to sign Corbett also."
Morley .Hopes to Retain Corbett.
Promptly enough the future Attorney

5200,000 to me"— not wanting to remain
and believing that the sum would be suf

Mr. Knox lives in on© ' of the finest
houses in Washington and indulges his
fancy for fast horses. Every day that
the sun shines he may be seen driving
about the capital behind one of his horses,
which cost thousands of dollars. . , .
Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock was
rich from the time of his birth and has
been associated with big business enter
prises in the West, which make his
wealth grow with each day. The salaries
of any of the Cabinet officers named
would hardly pay their house rent. AH
their other expenses for entertaining, for
horses, for the diversions which they seek
in summer and for their households dur
ing the social season must come from
their private fortunes.
They are necessarily losing large sums
of money by remaining in the public ser
vice. But each of them has some good
excuse for remaining.
Mr. Root stays in office at a .sacrifice
because he has yet to work our some of
the army reforms which the legislation
of the last session of Congress provided
for. A year ago he was telling his friends
that he would remain only* until he had
secured the legislation.
Mr. Hitchcock stays in the Cabinet be
cause he wants to put the entire Interior
Department on a business basis before
giving way to a successor. Mr. Knox
stays, not because he wants to, but.be
cause he Is Interested In the great legal
fight over the interstate commerce law.
So each man can give a special reason
why he retains his Government place at
the sacrifice: of his personal Interests.—*
New York Commercial.". ...
Mr. Knox explained that he would be
unable to do so because of his plans for a
foreign tour. Pleadings were In vain until
he was asked how much It would be
worth to him to postpone his trip and
take the suit
In every branch of the Government ser
vice in the departments in Washington,
as well as in the Federal offices of the
various cities, rich men are found working
faithfully and hard because of the Inter
est they feel In their duties, writes the
Washington correspondent of the New
John Hay, Secretary of State, Is per
haps in his present place because of pa
triotic sense of duty. There are many
reasons why he should want to retire
from the cares of state. He Is rich and
has one of the finest homes in the na
tional capital, Just across Lafayette
square from the White House.
His social station could easily be main
tained were he out of office, and he could
continue to lead In the set that has been
led by him for so long. But he remains
in the public service because he is told
that no one knows the foreign relations
of our Government as well as he, or Is
qualified to fill his place just as he has
filled' it He serves because of a patriotic
sense of duty and because some of the
ambitions which he has had for the na
tion have not been entirely worked out.
Secretary of War Root is also rich. It
is said that his income at the time when
he went into the Cabinet was in excess
of $50,000 a year from his profession.
Attorney General Knox, too, is rich.
One Incident is cited to show Just how
some of his wealth came to him. He had
planned a trip to Egypt with his family
one winter and made every preparation
for it. Two days before his departure he
was approached by the representative of
one of the big Western Pennsylvania
companies and asked to take charge of a
suit which would require about a month
of his time.

NEW YORK, Sept. 12. — Before a crowd
of 25,000 persons, Arthur Featherstone'a
Igniter won the $25,000 Annual Champion
stakes, at two and a quarter miles, at
Sheepshead Bay to-day. Igniter was
quoted at 7 to 1. Douro, the favorite, was

DaJngerfleld. The time, 3:53 3-5, breaks
the track record by 2 2-5 seconds, made
by David Garrick in 1900. j
They were sent away to a perfect start.
O'Neill on Charles Ellwood, at once drove
his mount to the front, followed by Major
Daingeriield and Igniter. At the far turn
Puller, on Igniter, and Gannon, on Douro,
went at their mounts with hands and
heels, and, passing the three-eighth pole,
they were in front, running head and
bead. Rounding Into-, the stretch they
were running like a team, but under a hard

Rheumatism never comes by accident. It is in *^^^*^ < z!^*J>Q&**^^^'^z
the blood and system before a pain is felt. Some ""^^ "1 >^^ •
inherit a strong predisposition or tendency; it is born in them; but whether heredity is
back of it or it comes from imprudent and careless ways of living, it is the same always'
and at all seasons. The real cause of Rheumatism is a polluted, sour and acid condition
of the blood, and as it flows through the body deposits a gritty, irritating substance
or sediment in the joints and nerves, and it is these that produce the terri-
ble pains, inflammation and swelling and the misery and torture of Rheumatism. No>
other disease causes such pain, such wide-spread
suffering. It deforms _ and cripples its thousands, HIS WIFE A GREAT SUFFERER.

and cutting, again dull and aggravating. The mus-
cles of the neck, shoulders and back, the joints of the knees, ankles* and wrists, are
most often the seat of pain. Countless liniments and plasters arc applied to get relief,
but such things do not reach the poisoned blood; their cftect is only temporary; they are
neither curative nor preventive. The blood must be purified, and all irritating matter re-
moved from the circulation before permanent relief and a thorough cure is effected, and no

»and tonic properties, but solvent qualities as well, all these being necessary in eradicating the
