talk by Mr. Marion, mapping out 'he
programme, e'c. He introduced Chester's
popular young mayor, William .).

left the boat, according to the story
of Cap:. Henri Michel, the Greek com- ;
mander, the Edna Ixmise was set on
fire. They saw her burn to the water's

Then the life boat was pointed toward ,
Cape RiJmainr where they landed for (

?Adoption is Sure.
London, May 25.?-Home rule for
Ireland today became practically certain,
i; was believed by supporters of
the measure. The house of commons
this afternoon, on division, passed the
measure, 351 to 274.
John E. Redmond, the Irish Nationalist
leader, in a statement said
that the action of the commons "was
equivalent to the passage iof the bill
into a law.
Two eventualites, both of -which j
the Nationalist leader deemed impos- j
sible, could prevent the bill from be- j
coming a law, -he said. These were
that he preliminary session should
come to an abrupt end or that the
commons should suddenly go mad and

Chronic, Cripp!ed-i:p Sufferers
Find Relief After Few Doses
of New Remedy are
It is needless to suffer any longer
with rheumatism, and be all crippled
up, and bent out of shape with its
heart-wrenching pains, when you can
surely avoid it.
Rheumatism comes from weak, inactive
kidneys, that fail to filter from
the blood, the poisonous waste matter
and uric acid; and it is useless to
rub ori liniments or take ordinary
remedies to relieve the pain. This
only prolongs the misery and can't
possibly cure you.
The only w iy to cure rheumatism
is to remove the cause. The new discovery,
Croxone, does this because it
neutralizes and dissolves all the poisonous
substances and uric acid that
lodge in the joints and muscles, to
scratch and irritate and cause rheumatism,
and cleans out and strengthens
the stopped-up, inactive kidneys,
so they can filter all the poisons from
the blood and drive it on and out of
Croxone is the most wonderful
medicine ever made for curing chronic
rheumatism, kidney troubles, and

different from 'all other remedies.
There is nothing else on earth like it.
It matters not how old you are, or
how long you have suffered, it is
practically impossible to take it into
the human system without results.
You will find relief from the first few
' doses, and you will be surprised how
quickly all your misery and suffering
An original package of Croxone
costs but a trifle at any first-class
dru? store. All druggists are authorized
to sell it on a positive moneyback
guarantee. Three doses a day
for a few days is often all that is
ever needed to cure the worst backache
or overcome urinary disorders.
