; Lived Together Eight : Years.
Through, the answer of Mrs. Lizzie
Eggers in police court yesterday, when
she waB asked how long she and Lee
Gaskey, both of whom had been charg
ed with Immoral conduct, - had been
living together as man and wife, one
of the most startling examples of com
mon law marriage was brought to
light. In her answer to the question
propounded by the court, Mrs. Eggers
admitted that they had been living
together for a period of over eight
years, in a houso at Front and War
ren streets. She somewhat vindicated
herself of the charge by the statement
that they had intended getting married
as soon as she could obtain a divorce
from her husband, but put herself in
bad light again when she said they
had been saving noney to obtain this
divorce for the past eight years.- The
court advised an immediate separa

Catarrh of the Stomach
a Prevalent Disease
Difficult to Relieve.
A PROMPT AND EFFICIENT REMEDY.
Mr. S. "W. Jackson, C15 Weaver Block,
Greenville, Ohio, says: "While I was
uperlntendanft of construction ot J. !F.
Bender and Bros.' Co., of Hamilton,
Ohio, I became entirely unfit for busi
ness with catarrh of the stomach.
"A friend called roy attention to a
remedy for this condition. I began to
, improve at onoe. I was soon able to re
tarn to my former profession.
"It would require many pages to de
scribe the condition I was in and the re
lief I have obtained." ' ,
Here is another case. Officer George
T. Stout, 724 North. Broadway, Balti
more, Md., says: "I suffered very much
With catarrh of the stomach and ner
vous Indigestion. I lost fifty pounds In
A friend called my attention to a
remedy, which I used, and gradually
got well, I have gained half my lost
weight back again."
Chronic Stomach Trouble.
Mr. Robert J. GlUespie, 636 South
Main St., Los Angeles, Cal., secretary
of Lather's International Union, was
also suffering from catarrh of the stom
ach a long time. Be grew thinner and j
paler, lost all ambition and appetite.
Sick at the stomach, indigestion con
tinually. . ' '
A friend also called bis attention to
a remedy, Which brought about a de
cided Improvement. After continuing
the use of the remedy for a month, he
considers himself permanently relieved.
Now, once more. Mr. Christian Hot
man, 81atlngton, Fa., says he suffered
for many years with catarrh of the
stomach. It produced a miserable
eongta, day and night. He tried doctors
and many remedies. At last his atten
tion was called to a remedy, the same
remedy that relieved the others which
bave been referred to above.' He claims
that be was entirely rid of his stomach
Pe-rn-na Brought Back Health.'
What was the remedy that ' has
wrought this remarkable relief? . So far,
the remedy has not been mentioned. -
If any one doubts the correctness of
these statements it Is very easy to ver
ify them by writing to the people whose
names have been given, enclosing a
stamp for reply.
The remedy is within the reach of
very one. It is simply the good, old
standard reliable remedy known as

Theater Fight Aired In Court "Who
owns title to the Family theater in
Rock Island and the Family theater in
Clinton? This is the vexing question
now before Judge Barker in the dis
trict court to decide. Mr. Sodini says
"I am it," and Mr. Bryson says "No,
It's me." The warfare being waged
between Klaw & Erlanger and the
Shuberts is no more bitter than that
being conducted by these two rival
theater magnates. Originally Mr. So
dini was in undisputed possession of
the two theaters. According to his pe
tition, he mortgaged these two theaters
to Mr. Bryson to secure a loan amount
ing to about $9,000. Now Mr. Bryson
claims the papers given him by Mr.
Sodini were in the nature of a bill of
sale and not a mortgage, and fortified
by his possession of these papers Mr.
Bryson claims ownership of the two
theaters. On the "other hand, Mr. So
dini alleges even though the papers he
signed was a bill of sale, he was de
ceived by Mr. Bryson and made to be
lieve . that he was merely signing a
mortgage. Upon the decision of Judge
Barker will determine whether Mr.
Sodini or Mr. Bryson shall be recog
nized as .the rightful owner of the
property. At one time Max Ruben
made some pretense to ownership, but
his career In the theatrical firmament
was but bri f, and he alleges he is no
longer an "angel" for any theatrical
company, owner, agent, star or chorus
If the truth were known, the proba
bilities are that Pernna ha3 relieved
as many cases of catarrh of thestomaeh
as any other popular remedy in exis
tence. We have a great many unsolic
ited testimonials from all parts of the
United States, declaring in strong and
enthusiastic terms' that Pernna has en
tirely relieved them of catarrh of the
stomach, that they were wretched and
miserable beyond - words, but Pernna
has restored them to health, vigor and
These are the facts. Now, if you bave

Symptoms of Stomach. Catarrh.
''The affection may result from errors
in diet, or the use of alcohol. The ex

the juice or the leaves are swallowed,
