At Hickory, s., a man owned a

lie had to st nd in this water. His
feet and han Is were wet by it day

velled to see his sores getting better
and his rheumatic pains less severe.
By the time the ditch was finished
the darkey was a well man. The news
spread like wild fire. It was looked
upon as a miracle.
The mineral through which this
water ran was analyzed and found to
contain nine mineral acids of start

extracted from the mineral and found
to possess marvelous curtive powers.
The preparation has been put on the
market under the name of Sulferro

The most remarkable eradication of
disease has followed the introduction
of this marvelous remedy everywhere.

Lloyd-George Has. Resigned
British War Cabinet Totters
London, Dec. 3.--The political cri
sis has become acute. It is stated. in
well-informed quarters that David
Lloyd-George, the war secretary, has
"tendered his resignation which has
not yet been accepted.
Premier Asquith has decided to ad
vise the King to consent to the re
construction of the government. This
was officially announced tonight. )
The statement reads: "The pYime
minister, with a view to the most ef
fective prosecution of the war, has
decided to advise his Majesty the
King to consent to the reconstruction
of the government."
Premier Asquith left town yester
(lay, but returned this morning and
throughout the day there have been
consultations and meeting of party
leaders at the premier's residence.
Mr. Lloyd-George had a long con
sultation with the premier this after
noon. Other visitors were A. Bonar
Law, a secretary of the colonies and
the Marquis -of Crew, lord president
of the council.
Perhaps the most important signifi
cance was attached to the fact that
Sir Edward Carson ana Mr. Law ap
peared together and addressed a
meeting of -the Unionist committee,
while the Earle of Derby, under sec
retary for war, had a long interview
with Mr. Lloyd-George.
It is understood no official an
nouneement will be made tonight, but
that Premier Asquith will see the
King again tomorrow morning and
thereafter make a statement in the
House of Commons in explanation of
Thus far it appears no arrange
ment has been made for Secretary
Lloyd-George to see the King, which
would irdicate that at the present
moment there is some prospect that
the crisis will be surmounted with
the complete collapse of the coalition
Cabinet and without the resignation
of Mr. Lloyd-George.
