I was afflicted with Tetter in bad shape.
It would appear in blotches as large as my
hand, a yellowish color, and scale off.
You can imagine how offensive it was.
For twelve years I was afflicted with this
trouble. At night it was a case of scratch

good the medicine was doing a friend
who was taking it for Eczema, I com
menced it, and as a result the eruption be

I am practically a well man. Only two
tiny spots are left on the elbow and shin,

I have every confidence in the medicine,

two remaining spots will disappear.

The hospital ship Angara, formerly

One day last week a hospital ship

Sinking of the Rastoropny Relieves
Chefoo, Nov. 18.The three Japa
nese torpedo boat destroyers which
entered the harbor during the morn
ing to ascertain if the Russian torpe
do Doat destroyer Rastoropny was here
disappeared for a time, but reappeared
in tne afternoon. The Japanese consul
sent a cutter out to meet them and
iniormed the nearest destroyer, the
Kasumi, that the Rastoropny had been
sunk. The consul says this was the
first the ships knew of the sinking of
the Rastoropny. The Kasumi trans
mitted the information by wireless
telegraphy to the Japanese flagship,
whereupon the destroyers disappeared
in the direction of Port Arthur.
The sinking of the Rastoropny by
the Russians relieved the Japanese of
an embarrassing position. A repeti
tion of the torpedo boat destroyer
Ryeshitelni incident would have arous
ed indignation, while a failure to de
stroy or cut the Rastoropny out would
have appeared like admitting previous
wrongdoing. c, hj^.

UNABLE TO MAKE HEADWAY
AGAINST THE CROWD.
Chicago, Nov. 18.A mob of sympa
thizers and striking furniture movers
attacked several wagons of the John
ston Chair company in the heart of the
business district during the day and
for a time traffic was blocked by a
mass of struggling rioters. The driv
ers of the wagons were menaced by
the mob. The few policemen on hand
were helpless to make headway against
the crowd, which only gave way when
reinforcements of police arrived.
Similar trouble occurred when two
wagons loaded with chairs drove up
to the Sherman street entrance to the
Board of Trade building.
A crowd of 1,000 persons followed
the wagons, which were under police
guard, and many threats were made
at the nonunion drivers.
Doors on the Jackson boulevard
side of the Board of Trade building
were locked and other doors guarded
that no trouble might occur in the
building. Operators, clerks and mes
sengers gathered upon window ledges
of the Board of Trade and surrounding
buildings, threw corn upon the crowd
and increased the confusion by yell
ing continuously. The corn throwers
were finally dislodged by the police.
Ropes which held dozens of chairs
on the wagons were cut. Foes of the
nonunion drivers hurled the chairs at
the wagon men. Two patrolmen re
ceived injuries from chairs. A run
ning fight ensued, the crowd pursuing
the wagon all the way back to the

fired guns and received the hundreds
of students who came running up by
saying: "We're going to clean out
Mason for shooting Earl Grunert. We
mean business a^id want only fellows
