Most people hare an idea that rheumatism is contracted like a cold, that the
damp, chilly air penetrates the muscles and joints and causes the terrible aches
and pains, or that it is something like a ekin disease to be rubbed away with lini
ment or drawn out with plasters; but JRhuematism originates in the blood and is
caused by Urea, or Uric Acid, an irritating, corroding poison that settles in mus
cles, joints and nerves, producing inflammation and soreness and the sharp, cutting
pains peculiar to this distressing disease. ' .

A runaway which resulted in the se
rious injury of II. II. Ekardt of 1120
West Fourth street, occurred on Har
rison street shortly after 5 o'clock
Saturday afternoon. Mr. Ekardt with
Christ Juhler, of 1524 West 'lhircl
street had come down the Harrison
street hill in the waggon and had
driven the team to the watering
trough that the horses might have a
drink. In driving to the trough the
wagon was left standing so that a
car coming down the hill caught the
rear wheels and the horses became
frightened and started to run. As
they turned down the street the ve
hicle was thrown to one side so that
Mr. Ekardt and his man were thrown
violently to the pavement. Passers
by ran to the aid of Mr. Kkardt and
Mr. Juhler. The former was found to
be seriously injured and the ambu
lance was summoned and he was ta
ken to St. Luke's hospital. There it
was learned that he had suffered se
rious internal injuries and he was con
stantly complaining of a terrible pain
in the chest. Just how- badly he is
hurt is not known. Juhler was but
slightly injured and he was taken to
his home. The horses came out un
scathed and the wagon was smashed

In the suit of Wilfred Hall against
the D., IJ. I & X. W. road and the C,
I. & Q. road the claim is set up by
the defense that the right of way
was purchased and paid for at the
time the road was, built. The answer
to the suit was recorded in the clerk's
office and the railroads state that the
owner of the island was paid $200 at
one tune -and $2,346.75 at another
time for the property over which the
roads run. it is claimed that the prc
perty was secured first for the smaller
amount and that when it was found
necessary to secure more the amount
was paid over. The company also
claims that those payments are on
record and that the receipts for the
same can be shown. It also denies the
allegation that it has appropriated
the use of any land to which it has
not the right and t denies that it
has done more than make lawful use
of its own property.

In "Under Southern Skies'" the au
thor, Lottie Blair Parker, has shoNvn
much ingenuity in handling the ma
terial in the plaj- so that it is given a
freshness and charm that are delight
fully attractive. The play was seen
here last night. The story of a young
girl with rival lovers has been used
in many plays and with varying com
binations. So. too, has the story of
the erring wife, returning repentant,
been treated often before in drama.
Hut it was Mrs. Parker's happy
thought to weave these two stories
together, in just such a way and with
just such surroundings and accessor
ies as had never been used before.
This can certainly be called "original
ity;" and in other ways the play dif
fers from anything yet seen uion the
stage. Notably in reproducing a Hal
lowe'en party in which the young peo
ple play some of the tricks of that
time honored institution. These tricks
and the jack-o-lantern dance are nov
elties which audiences hail with tie
light, and they have proven a strong
feature in the success of the play.
The story of "Under Southern Skies"
is distinctively southern. All the char
acters are of southern birth, and are
imbued with traits of character in
bred in the people of that section of
our country. Ever3" one of the charac
ters in the play is- a well drawn por
trait, as true a picture of southern
speech and manner as the same au
thor has drawn of New England coun
try people in "Way Down East." The
two colonels, one full of bluster and
flowery oratory, the other cool, de
liberate and unmoved, are finely con
trasted, and their long standing feud
furnishes much amusement for the
audience. Maj. Crofton, whose life
holds a hidden sorrow, is an impress
ive and interesting figure, and the two
lovers of the heroine are carefully
drawn portraits of different natures,
although both are examples of the
hot-blooded young southerner. The
smaller parts are equally well pre
sented and the old darky "Uncle Josh-
away" is a life-like and amusing char
acter. The young heroine, Lelia Crof
ton, is the center of interest among
her young girl friends. The part is a
difficult one to portray, for she passes
through all the stages of joy and
grief, that are woven about her
throughout the plot of the play. The
faithful old "Auntie" and the mis
chievous child "Anner Lizer" arc
laughable creations true to the
darkey of the south.
A pleasing feature of Kirk La
Shelle's successful production, "The
Bonnie Drier Bush," that adds very
materially to the Scotch atmosphere,
is a quartet of male vocalists led by j
Hubert C. Easton, a tenor of repute,
who introduces the beautiful old-time
ballads so dear to the native Scot, J
also a bagpiper, late drum major of i
the 48th Highlanders, who is said to.
be a very clever performer on the
pipes. "The Bonnie Brier Bush," with
J. II. Stodtlart, lleuben Fax and a se-J
lect supporting company, comes to
tbe Illinois theatre this evening.
"All the world's a stage," wrote
Shakespeare, and forthwith h; pro
ceeded to evolve creatures to make
their entrances and their exits, and
foT an age or two they have been do
ing it, with no profit to the man who
evolved them, save perhaps a never
dying glory, a glory which will be tri
umphant when the present generation
of plaj'wrights and their puny works
are gone and forgotten. Of all the
successes evolved by Shakespeare
(and he never knew a failure), "As
You Like It," is without question the
most charming and noteworthy play
of the age, and the character of "Kos-
alind" the most interesting ever con
ceived in any age by any author. The
play is one which admits, of a mass
ive scenie investiture, and the play
goers of this community will have an
opportunity Wednesday at the Illinois
of seeing what is claimed to be the
most sumptuous production made this

Friday night there was a big time
at wigwam of the King Phillip tribe
in Masonic hall. Nearly 200 Indians
assembled in council to witness Mo

chief's degree. after which they
trailed to the dancing hall and par
took of corn and venisoli. Following
the feast they mokeil the calumet

talks by the various chiefs of the
tribe and visiting Indians from the
reservation of Iowa. Interesting: anec

traveled in other hunting grounds

GRAIN DEALERS SLOW TO
PURCHASE NEW CORN CROP
Some of the country dealers are re
fusing to buy the new corn crop.
They say that the grain is in such
condition- that it is likely to spoil in
the cribs and they are afraid that
they will lose all they invest. One of
the well-known buyers said: "Ordinarily-
at this-season 1 have at least
20,000 bushels bought for delivery be
fore the holidays. This year I have
less than 1,000. 1 bought a little be
fore it was husked, lefore it was
known its condition was bad. and it
has since Wen delivered. Sincethat
time 1 have refused to buy.
"There is no way that a country
dealer can save himself, under exist
ing circumstances, if he buys such
corn. There is no market for it.
When the grain is sound and there is
danger of a falling off in the price,
the country dealer can protect him
self by selling immediately at some of
the big centers. But when he does
that he must know that the grain
that he will offer will grade. The new
corn is nothing so far as grade is
concerned, and it would not bring in
Chicago what I am told is quoted as
the price at the- country stations. 1
have talked with some of the dealers
at the. other stations and they tell me
that they are not buying any of the
stuff. It is soft, and there is no tell
ing what its condition will be later,
except that it is not likely to im
prove." MEET TO ARRANGE PRIZES
