GIRL HANGS HERSELF
Disappointment Jn a Love Affair Ik
Thought to be Cause of Susie
Lake City, Dec. 12.?Susie Gore, the
15-year-old daughter of Henry Gore,
of Vineland. N. C. today between 10
and 12 o'clock deliberately took her
own life by banging herself. She went
in the barn near the house of her
cousin, where she had been staying
for the past live months, placed a
rope over the joist by standing on a
barrel, then around her neck and
jumped off the barrel. It is thought
that she could have easily saved her
own life even after she had jumped
had she felt so Inclined. <i:> there was
a wall near, to which she could have
easily caught with her bands.
On the barrel she left a note, di
rected to her cousin. :.i which she
gave instructions as to what disposi
tion they should make of her body,
She also mentioned the mune of the.
young man with whom she had been
going recently and It is supposed that
she had been disappointed in a love
affair. There seems to have been no
other possible reason for the rash act.
Her body will be sent to her home
In North Carolina tomorrow for burial,
The verdict of the coroner's jury
which held an inquest over her body
was that she hanged herself.?The

There is only one way to over come
catarrh. That way is through the
blood. You may use. all the snuffs,
douches or like remedies for years
Without gelling more than temporary
relief at best. Catarrh in general is
a diseased condition of (lie system

HOW TO CURE RHEUM VT1SM.
It Is an Internal Disease and Requires
an Internal Remedy?
The cause of Rheumatism and kin
dred diseases is an excess of uric
acid in the blood. To cure this terrible
disease this acid must he expelled and
the system so regulated that no more
acid will be formed in excessive
quantities. Rheumatism is an internal
disease and requires an internal reme
dy. Rubbing with Oils and Liniments
will not cure, affords only temporary
relief at best, causes you to delay this
proper treatment, allows the malady
to get a firmer hold on you. Liniments
may case the pain, but they will no
! more cure Rheumatism than paint
will change the fibre of rotten wood.
Science lias at last discovered a per.
feet and complete cure, which is call
ed "Rheumaclde." Tested in hundreds
of cases, it has effected the most mar
velous cures; we believe it will cure
you. Rheumaclde "go's at the joints
I from the inside," sweeps the poisons
out of the system, tones up the stom
ach, regulates the liver and kidneys
and makes you well all over. Rheu
maclde "strikes the root of the dis
ease and removes its cause." This
splendid remedy is sold by druggists
and dealers generally at r>0o. and $1
a bottle. In tablet form at 2? and GOc
