THAT MADE A DIFFERENCE

William, you know host, I suppose, or
you think you do. But I imagine that
you won't mind if I give you a little ad

myself, and I think I might be able to

OOUBLE BALLOON AIRSHIP.
Invention of an Englishman That
, BBtll Bo Something Hew
( ,i, , • and JlovaL
A new type of dirigible balloon, in
vented by L J. Anderson, of London,
England, is described ib the Scientific
American. The principal feature is that
two balloons, placed side by side, ol
identical shape and capacity, are em
ployed to lift the vessel. The model
having proved successful to the inventor,
* full-sized vessel is now being con
structed. The balloons are elliptical in
shape, and will measure 70 feet in
length by 27 feet diameter at the widest
part They will each hold approximately
27,000 feet of hydrogen pas. thus giving
them a lifting power of 4,000 pounds.
The framework, or deck, of the vessel
will measure 75 fee* in length, and is to
be constructed of bamboo. Another
feature of the craft will be the employ
ment of three propellers. The main pro
peller will be placed at the stern, to
gether with the rudder. By an ingenious
arrangement, however, the pitch of th's
driving propeller may be varied from the
deck of the vessel as desired, the object
of which is to use it as an aurilliary
though powerful rudder, for maintain
ing- or altering the ship's course accord-
Ing to the exigencies that arise. Two
subsidiary propellers are placed at the
bow and stern of the deck respectively,
and- are intended to supplement the driv
ing power of the mechanism. The whole
of machinery is place between the two
balloons; for the inventor holds that by
this design the improvement of the steer
ing possibilities and the maintenance of
a straight course are materially in
creased. The motion of the propellers
and. their design are entirely n-ew, coin
ciding as nearly as possible, to a recipro
catory motion, so that the nearest ap
proach to th« motion of a bird's -wing is
obtained. The propellers are to measure
30 feet hi diameter. "'

" Sweet Clover," a comedy drama
in four acts by Pauline Phelps and
Marion Short, which comes to the
Auditorium September i)th, must
be credited with one of the most
pronounced and substantial hits of
the season. It tells of a sweet
young girl, reared by an old father
with zealous care, lest she fall into
the path that years before led her
mother to forsake her baby and
The plot leads with rapid se
quence through events wherein the
girl learns that her secret lover is
the son of the man who lured away
her mother. She then marries the
man her father chooses for her, and
while happy in his love, and learn
ing to return it in full measure,
meets her returned lover, and dis
coveres he was only the adopted
i son of the villain. The climax of
the play comes when, after a tab
leaux party, husband and wife hav
ing returned home, the frantic lover
enters the house through a door
momentarily left ajar by the hus
band who is preparing to leave the
city that night. The wife descends
in her chamber robe to say a part
ing word to her husband and, finds
herself in the presence oi the old
lover instead. T/he scene that en
sues is intensely dramatic. The
young wife, true to her husband,
keenly feels the indignity thrust
upon her honor, and the impetuous
loTer seals his doom when he tries
to force his caresses upon her. Ban
)Bhed and loathed he leares, but the
Imsband whose suspicions have
I>*■»• ii aroused, returned to discover
the recent presence of the man, and
to cast oft' the innocent but compro
mised wife. But, like all plays, j
"Sweet Clover " ends happily for:
all concerned. The characters are;
exceptionally well drawn, the rural
atmosphere is perfect and the com-:
edy element so strong as to make
the play seem like an April day,l

Big Log Drive at Palouse.
Palouse, Wash., Aug. 29.— The
Poilatch Lumber company will
bring down a drive of from 25,000,- l
000 to 30,000,000 feet of logs next
spring for the year's run. This is
at least double the size of this sea-
son's run and will keep the plant'
running at full capacity during the
entire year, giving Palouse a steady
pay day. The company will have |
from 350 to 500 men cutting logs
by the firbt of the month.
While there is storage room in
the pond at the mill for but a small
portion, dams will be built making;
it possible to get logs to the mill at!
any time during the summeror fall,;
when the water is at its lowest.
The lumber market has been
duller this season than for several
years past, but the demand for the
product at this place has been be

July the company shipped 64 cars |
of lumber. The plant is turning;
out an average of more than 110,
--000 feet every day and it is almost
impossible to keep up with the or

"I enjoyed good health until about two years
ago when I noticed my back began to ache fre
quently; it became sore and lame, and headache
soon added to my misery: also found that ray
general health diminished. I became thin and
we«k and nenrous, having severe pains at regu
lar intervals," writes Mrs. Augustus Emory,
Treasurer New Century Club, 34 Dean Street
(Roxbury), Boston, Mass. She continues: "My
work which before had seemed an easy task
soon seemed like a heavy burden. I decided
to try Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription, which
several of my friends praised so highly. I felt
relief within a week, my appetite came back, the
pains gradually decreased and I enjoyed sound
sleep. Within fourteen weeks I had completely
recovered my health. I seemed built up anew,
my pulse, which had been weak became nor
mal, and new life animated my entire being.
I gladly endorse your medicine."
Doctor Pierces Favorite Prescription
restores weak and sick women to sound
health, by curing the local womanly dis
eases which are generally responsible for
the failure of the general health. A wom
an's entire being is centered in her wom
anly nature. When the delicate womanly
organism is attacked by disease; when
there is irregularity or a disagreeable drain;
when inflammation burns and ulcers gnaw
the general health will reflect the progress
of disease, in increasing weakness, nerv
ousness, backache, headache, loss of appe
tite and sleeplessness.
So mum of it is the World's Dispensary
Medical Association, of Buffalo, N. V., pro
prietors of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescrip
tion, that they offer $500 reward for women
who cannot be cured of Leucorrhea, Fe
male weakness, Prolapsus, or Falling of
Womb. All they ask is a fair and reasona
ble trial of their means of cure.
