A WATER TRUST
Efforts Under Way to Combine Saratoga
Mmaral Spring Prov?ertl?a
New York. April M Tin* Litest m
the way of trusts is the Sprint? Water
Trait. A syndical?* lias been formed
for the purpose of aV-qalriag all the
priucipal ininer.il sprin? properties m
Saratoga ami r?alag them under one
company t ? be known m the Consol i
ated Mineral Sprint's Cotupanj of
Saratoga Springs. The banking tirm
of Thomas \- I'owt, 71 Hroadway, un?
dertook to underwrite tin* boat? of the
company. The scheme is not fully nta
tared for the reason that two of the
principal spring companies, the Yichy
and the Paterson, have thin fur refused
to give options on their properties to
the proposed new company. The syndi?
cate has, however, secured option?, on
the properties of the Geyser. Hawthora,
Congress, Empire, Kissiugtti, Lincoln.
Victoria, Champion, Carlsbad, Exee'?
?ior, Hed, High Kock, Magnetic, Usa!.
Imperial, Pavilion, United States,
Hamilton, Colombian, Waahiagtoa,
and several other Saratoga Spring com?
panies These option? continue until
May 14. uutil which time the pri
the pr<?pertios, fixed by the present
owners, may be accepted, ot the syndi
?ate may make other offen to the own?
ers. It was said today that the greatest
difficulty in carrying through the deal
is occasioned by the abnormally high
valuations which the spring OWMM
put upon their property. The spring
o vners insist th.it if the Saratoga Spring
are consolidated in oue company the
value of each property to the new com?
pany will be fifty per cent, above it?
separate value, instead of ten per cent.
To this proposition the syndicate says
to the spring owners : "Come in on
reasonable terms or tight the trust. "
If the scheme goes through the new
company will be incorporated immed?
iately with the idea of making Saratoga
the American Carlsbad The erection
or a big sanitarium is contemplated
where the waters must be taken ac?
cording to the prescription of attending
physicians or not taken at all. It is
also contemplated to turn th? valley
in which tbe principal springs are into
a great park, of which the present Con?
gress Spring Park shall be a part. If
thia plan is carried out a park about
seven miles long and about a mile wide
in come parte, will extend from the
Geyser Spring on the south to the Kx
celaior Spring on the north, passing
right tbroct?a the centre of the village
The sale of the water in bottles aud
in barrels will be pushed, and besides
a comparatively new industry will be
developed. This new industry 1*? the
collecting in cylinders under pussuie
of the natural carbonic acid gu- frota
the springs for commercial use. This
is now done as Saratoga to a limited
extent. Carbonic acid is cheaply nia?le.
but it has been found a natural product
ot the Saratoga Springs can be sold
cheaper than the manufactured article.
Those who are behind the syndicate
have employed experts to look into the
possibilities of this industry at Sara?
toga and the experts have expressed the
opinion that practically all the oarbonic
acid gas used in this country can tie
obtained from the waste of tbeSarat? ga

No Xailc in "Dixie'
For the inability of his band to play
"Dixie," the popular southern air,
Conductor Theodore Thomas was on
Wednesday night presented with an
immense laurel wreath by Capt. Joseph
Bnrke, a Confederate veteran of Atlanta,
When the great orchestra went to
Atlanta Monday the represen tat t i ve of
one of the daily papers interviewed Mr.
Thomas and asked him if his organiza?
tion could play "Dixie." Mr. Thomas
replied that his time had been spent in
training hie men to play only the cream
of classical music, and that they did
not pander to the streetjmusic element.
Wednesday night at the cloee of
the series Capt. Burke presented Mr,
Thomas with the wreath, saying :
' '?Some unoultured persons have
thought there was music in Dixie. The
Musicians of Atlanta have always
known different, and they wish to
thaak you for enlightening them and
the general public. Take this bit of
laurel and wear it as a testimonial of
yon noblic efforts to ?bow the masses
what ture music is. ' '
The affair has caused considerable
surprise in veteran oiroles, and no
where more than it tbe set of Captain
Barke. At tbe came time the music
iane of the city approve hie aotiou, and
?ay the time has come to drop patriotic
idiocy for true melody.

FOR BLOOD POISON.
Beware of the Doctors
Patchwork; You Can
Cure Yourselt at Home.
I There is not the slightest doubt that tha
"I had spent a
doctors do more harm than good in treating
Contagious Blood Poison; ninny victims of
tins loathsome disease would be much better
otT to-day if they had never allowed them
belvos tu lie dosed on mercury and potash, the
only remedies which the doctors ever give for
loetors nre wholly unable to get rid of
this vile poison, and only attempt to heal up the outward appearance of the
disease?the sores and aruptioni 1 Ids they do by driving the poison into tlm
system, and endeavor to keep it shut in with their constant doses of potash
nnd mercury The mouth and throat and other delicate part? then break out
into sores, and the tight Isoontinued indefinitely, the drugs doing the system
Bore damage than the disease itself.
Mr. 11 1? Myers, 100 Mulberry St., Newark, **i. J., says:
hundred dollars with the doctors, ?*, hen I realised that
tl > y could do me no good. 1 had larg?* spots all over my
b.*dy. and these soon broke out Into running sores, and 1
endured all the suffering which this vile disease pro?
duces. I d?*clded to try S. S. S. as ? last resort, and svas
soon greatly improved. 1 folio?.at olosely your 'Direc?
tions for Self-Treatment,' and the larga splotches on my
chest began to grow paler and smaller, and before long
disappeared entirely. 1 was soon cured perfectly and my
skin has been as clear as glass ever sii.ee. 1 cured my?
self at home, after the doctors had failed completely."
It is valuable time thrown away to expect the doctors
to cure Contagious Blood Toison, for tho disease is be?
yond their skill. Swifts Specific?
S. S. S. FOR THE BLOOD
??acts in an entirely different way from potash and mercury?it forces the
poison out of the system and p^ts rid of it entirely. Hence it cures the
disease, while othsr remedies only shut the poison in where it lurks forever,
constantly undermining the constitution. Our system of private home trent
ment places a cur* within the reach of all. "*>'?? give all necessary medical ad?
vice, free of charge, and save the patient the embarrassment of publicity.
