Presidi-iit Koosevidt is giving per

there would be no discrimination

MEGIDDO IS COMING
Prophet Nichols Due Here Short
ly With Palatial Mission
BUILT ON LINES OF THE J. S.
Party Kxperts to Spend the Winter
Months in the Southern
l'rophet L". T. Nichols, of the
Christian P.rcthern. is expected down
this way shortly with his palalia!
missionary steamer. I he name of
the boat is' the MegiTldo, and was
Idiinchcu a few days ago at Lyons.
The name comes from the Hebrew
and signifies "iod is in this place
with a band of soldiers." i he boat
is said to be a model of convenience
and comfort, or will be when the
furnishing is completed and the
steamer is ready to take its depart
ure for southern waters.
"A hundred people "will make their
home in the Megiddo," explained Mr.'
Nichols to a Clinton Herald
reporter. -ln three weeks at
the farthest we will leave
Clinton to commence our work, but
lie fore we go, we will pitch our tent
on the vacant lot near ine old sani
tarium building, where 0 of the band
ire temporarily located awaiting the
completion of the steamer, ami will
conduct a numner of revival meet
ings therein. We have abandoned
the idea of carrying an automobile
on the boat to draw me oami wagon
through the streets, and, instead, will
use horses, which will be stabled on
the boat. The band has l: pieces.
Will I'reuch and Work.
"This winter we will go down the
river as far as Memphis, and will run
up I he Tennessee river, conducting
revival meetings at the larger cities
along this tributary of the Mississip
pi. In the spring we intend coming
north, and will reach Clinton about
May 1 and remain here two weeks.
This winter we will use a tent iu
which our meetings will lx held, but
this plan will he done away with in
the spring. This winter I intend hav
ing constructed a barge 40x1211 feet
in sie. The upper deck will be used
for a meeting place. It will tie open
iu front ami an apron will be thrown
out upon the shore as a mode of en
trance. The lower portion of the
barge we will use for a machine
shop. Vou see. we intend to make
the Megiddo self-supporting, and will
manufacture a number of articles for
the market, including an acelyline
gas lamp. Our boat will Ik' lighted
with acetyline gas instead of elec
tricity, as was at first intended."
Mr. NiclToliwill prolwblyV award
the contract for building the barge
to the local boat builders.
Hleerr Than the J. s.
The .Megiddo is built on the lines of
the new Acme packet .1. S.. but is
considerably larger than that boat.
It is equipped with two powerful en
gines of I-'." horse power each and
will lie propelled by a 17-foot wlteel.
It has a 4U-foot swinging stage. On
tli lower deck are the engine and
boiler rooms, kitchen aud dining
rooms, and iu the rear of the vessel
the stable. There is also a printing
room on the lower deck. In 1his
room tracts and hills for daily distri
bution about the towns where stops
are made will Ik printed. On the
second deck is a large parlor. 20x:i0
feet, iu sie. There are ."0 state
rooms on the boat. The upper deck
is an immense parade, the texas be
ing small, containing but eight state
rooms. The storerooms are in the
huld of the steamer. ,
I'lann Iiiik Trip.
Mr. Nichols told the reporter some
thing of his plans for the coming
year or two. He. in tends to at tempt
the ascent of the .Missouri river
northwest as far as the Yellowstone
region, although he is not positive
that the river can lie navigated by so
large a boat as the Megiddo. How
ever, the new steumer draws but IS
inches of water, lie will also navi
gate the Missouri as far as Kansas
City, and will make trips up the Ohio
and Illinois rivers and the other large
tributaries from time to time. It is
probaole that he will go north to the
headwaters of the river, or at least,
as far as practicable, next summer.

EFFORTS TO ORGANIZE
TRI-STATE COAL TRUST
As to whether or not a coal trust
embracing all the mines of the state
oi unio, Indiana and Illinois will be
suecessiuiiy organized is creating
considerable comment not only in
the three states directly interested
but in all the states that derive their
coal supply from these fields.
that there is a movement to bring
all the mines in these states uuili
owe oeuu or management there can
oe no doubt, and that the deal, so far
as Ohio and Indiana is concerned, is
practically consummated seems to be
a fact, however, those in a position
to know say that the real obstacle
in the path of the promoters is the
large price that must, necessarily be
paid to bring the many mines in this
state . into the combination. The
fact that coal is so abundant in this
state has caused a very large number
of mines to be open, and in conse
quence the coal output in this state
is very large as compared with In
diana and Ohio. In fact it is nearly
twenty times as great as the output
of Indiana and considerably greater
than that of Ohio. Therefore, the
price to be paid for the mines will be
propfirt innately grea ter.
A gentleman conversant with the
mining affairs of this state said yes
terday that he did not believe that
the coal trust will be organized, as
he felf that the amount of money re
ipiired would be too great for any
company or syndicate to handle, as it
will take millions and trillions of dol
lars to gain control or the mines in
this state alone. However, he stated
that unless the mines in this state
were brought into the combination
the efforts to effect a trust in the
other states would be valueless, as
the amount ot coal mined in this
stati" and thrown upon the market
would be a poyerful factor in regu
A SOUR STOMACH.
! Often I lie Ileal CauM ut u Sour Tern
I'. That the condition of the digestive
organs has a marked effect upon the
character or disposition is a truism
as old as the hills. Old Hen Johnson
wisely said, "the pleasure of living
dcciids upon the liver." and it is a
fact which none may dispute that a
sunny disiosit ion more often results
from a healthy digestion than from
any other cause.
Acid dysjiepsia. commonly called
sour stomach or heartburn, is caused
by slow digestion of food: instead of
being promptly digested ami convert
ed into blood, bone and muscle, it
lies in the stomach for hours, fer
menting and decaying creating gases
which cause pressure on the lungs
an I heart, short breath and general
discomfort and .irritation.
Such half digested food is indeed
poor nourishment for the body, brain
and nerves and the result is shown
in irritable tempers, unaccountable
headaches and that depressing condi
tion usually called the "blues" but
how quickly all these disappear when
appetite and digestion are restored.
Laxative medicines only irritate
the already irritated stomach and
bowels and have no effect upon act
ual digestion of food.
The sensible course to follow is to
make use of simple natural digestives
like Stuart's Dysjwpsia Tablets after
meals until the stomach has a chance
The natural digestives which every
healthy stomach contains are pep
tones, diastase and Hydrochloric ami
lactic acids and when any of them
lacking the trouble begins. The
are so valuable
Ihey contain, in
and successful in
troubles is because
a pleasant coneen-
trated tablet form all these absolute
ly necessary essentials for perfect
digestion and assimilation of food.
Henry Kirkpatrick, of Lawrence,
Mass., says: "Men and women whose
occupation precludes an active out
door life should make it a daily prac
tice to use Stuart's Dysjiepsia Tab
lets after meals. I have done so my
self and I know positively that I owe
my present health and vigor to their
"Front the time I was 'J2 when I
graduated from school with broken
health from overwork, until 1 was
3t. I scarcely knew what it was to be
free from stomach weakness. I had
no appetite whatever for breakfast
and very little for any other meal.
"I had acidity and heartburn near
ly every day and sometimes was
alarmed by irregularity and palpita
tion of the heart, but all this grad
ually disappeared after I began using
Stuart's Dysjiepsia Tablets and I can
eat my meals with relish and satis
faction which I had not known since
I was a growing boy."
The success and popularity of Stu
art's Dyspepsia Tablets is enormous,
but it is deserved, and every "drug

(ircat Hritain has a good woril for
this meritorious preparation.
