ASSAULTED AFTER QUARREL
Jesse Koser, Father and Brother, Held
for Killing of Jacob
A cold-blooded murder, planned and
executed with deliberate intent, was
committed in the city of Savanna, Sat
urday night between 10 and 11 o'clock,
an old man named Jacob Weaver, aged
between CO atd 70 years, being as
saulted and killed by Jesse Koser, a
lad of about 17 years of age.
timvr H(mM-lf I p.
Savanna ieople did not know any
thing of the murder until young Koser
carne down town about 11' o'clock in
the evening and gave himself into the
custody of the ioliee. saying that he
had committed the crime. Jesse Koser,
his brother James, and their father,
Ed. had threatened "to do" Weaver,
and laid in wait for him Saturday
night. All parties concerned live in
the north part of Savanna among the
poorer class of residents, and in a des
olate place the victim was waylaid,
beaten over the head with a rifle butt
and a heavy club. Then the self-accused
perpetrator of the deed came to tell
of his act.
Two StorirN of Affair.
There are two stories rife concern
ing the causes for the murder. One is
that Weaver, who has been a section
employe on the Uurlinpton line, has
been accused by the Kosers of re
peated thefts from the Kosers and that
they were determined to mete out their
own ideas of punishment. Another
story is that in which the daughter
ami sister of the men is the central
figure. AH three Kosers were held by
the coroner's jury without bond.

WHY DOCTORS FAIL
AND MRS. PINKHAM SUCCEEDS
PUii Reason Are Here Givea to Explala
Why Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com.
pound Cures WhenDoctor Are Powerless
A woman Is sick; somedisea.se peculiar
to her sex is fat developing in her sys
tem. Mie pocs to her family physician
and tells him a story, but not the whole
Mhe holds something back, loses her
heud, becomes opitated, forgets what
she wants to say, and finally conceals
what she ought to have told, and thus
completely luystitie the doctor.
Is it any wonder, therefore, that the
doctors fail to cure the disease? Still
we cannot blame the woman, for it is
very enibarra.ing to detail some of the
symptoms of her suffering, even to her
It was for this reason that years ago
Mrs. linkham, at Lynn, Mass., de
termined to step in and help her sex.
Having had considerable experience in
treating female ills with her Vegetable
Compound, she encouraged the women
of America to write to her for advice in
regard to their complaints, and being a
woman, it was easy for her ailing sis
ters to pour into her ears every detail
of their suffering.
In tli is way slie was able to do for
them what the physicians were unable
to do, simply because she had the
proper information to work upon, and
frm the little greup of women who
sought her adviee years ago a great
army of her fellow-beings are to-lay
constantly applying for advice and re
lief, and the "fact that many thou
sands of them have been cured by
following the advice of Mrs. Pinkham
during the last year i indicative of the
frand results which are produced ho
lier unequaled experience ana training.
No physician in the world has had
such a training, or has such an amount
of information at hand to assist in the
treatment of all kinds of female ills,
from the simplest local irritation to
the most complicated womb diseases.
This, therefore, is the reason why-
Mrs. 1 'ink ham, in her laboratory at
Lynn, Ma-vs., is able to do more for the
ailing women of America than the
family physician. Aay woman, there
fore. Is responsible for her own suffer-
j ing wh will not take the trouble to
write to Sirs, rinknam for advice.
The testimonials which we are con
stantly publishing from grateful wo
men establish beyond a doubt the
power of Lydia EL Fink ham's Vegetable
Compound to conquer Icinale diseases.
A large and highly appreciative au
dience was present last evening at
the concert in Schuetzen park, given
by Wallace Moody, the well known ten
or and composer, assisted by some of
the best local talent and several artists
from abroad. The program presented
consisted of brilliant selections from

difficult of execution, but so excellently

Torture of a Preacher.
The story of the torture of Rev O.
D. Moore, pastor of the Baptist church,
of Harpersville, N. Y., will interest you.
He says: "I suffered agonies, because
of a persistent cough,' resulting from
the grip. I had to sleep sitting up in
bed. I' tried many remedies, without
relief, until I took Dr. King's New
Discovery for Consumption, Coughs
and Colds, which entirely cured my
cough, and saved me from consump
tion." A grand cure for diseased con
ditions of the throat and lungs. At
