HOW TO CUKE RHEUMATISM.
It 1? an Internal Disease and Re?
quires an Internal Remedy.
The cause of Rheumatism and kin?
dred diseases Is an excess of uric acid
In the blood. To cure this terrible dis?
ease this acid must be expelled and
the system so regulated that no more
acid will be formed in excessive quan?
tities. Rheumatism Is an Internal
disease and requires an Internal rein
edy. Rubbing with Oils and Lini?
ments will not cure, affords only tem?
porary relief at best, causes you t<>
delay the proper treatment, and al?
lows the malady to get . firmer hold
on you. Liniments may ease the pain,
but they will no mere cure Rheuma?
tism than paint will change the fibre
of rotten wood.
Science has at last discovered a
perfect and complete cure, which Is
called "Rheumaclde." Tested In hun?
dreds of cases, It has effected the
most marvelous cures; we believe it
will eure.you. Rheumaclde "gets at
the Joints from the Inside," sweeps
the poisons out of the system, tones
up the stomach regulates the liver
and kidneys and makes you well all
over. Itheumaclde "strikes the roots
of the disease and removes Its cause."

MINORITY IN PRACTICAL CON?
TROL FOR A TIME.
Many Republicans Having Left
Chamber Before Adjournment and
Democrats Remaining for a Cau?
cus, the Latter Defeat Motions to
Adjourn and Congressman Lloyd
Reads Hi? Resignation from Bal
Washington, Jan. 2 0.?An attempt
by Representative Lloyd, of Missouri,
to resign as a member of the joint
Congressional committee to investi?
gate the Balllnger-Pinchot contro?
versy brought about a curious condi?
tion today, in which the House for a
time found itself practically in con?
trol of the minority, actual control of
the body being prevented only by re?
sorting to parliamentary tactics.
It having been given out that there
would be a Democratic caucus at 4.30
o'clock most of the Republicans went
home, while practically every Demo?
crat was in his place. Motions to
adjourn were defeated by vociferous
choruses from the Democratic side.
Mr. Lloyd's resignation was read,
whereat Representative Tawney
made the point of order that no one
was authorized to receive It, and
would not be so authorized until the
joint committee should be organized.
Even then he expected the committee
would have authority to receive a
resignation of one of Us members
only by Inference.
Mr. Tawney undertook to demon?
strate that Mr. Lloyd, having been
elected to membership on the com?
mittee, had no avenue of escape from
This view was combated by Mr.
Underwood, of Alabama, who said
the House could accept the resigna?
tion of a member of any body It
Mr. Lloyd attempted to obtain the
floor for an explanation, but was bar?
red out by the parlimentary situation.
Mr. Tawney seeing the impossibility
of an adjournment, attempted to
iesume consideration of the deficien?
cy bill as a means to force an ad?
journment. Again the Democrats, in
overwhelming numbers, voted down
his motion. Renewing his motion to
adjourn Mr. Tawney demanded a
roll-call as an answer to the chorus
of negative votes on the ground that
there was no quorum present. While
the roll-call was In progress and Re?
publican members were being called
from their homes and hotels, several
miles away, Mr. Underwood arose to
make an explanation.
After some delay the Alabama
member succeeded in saying there
had been a general misunderstanding.
He explained that he had had no
knowledge of Mr. Lloyd's intention
to offer his resignation at that time.
The minority, he added, had not pur?
posely taken advantage of the ab?
sence of Republican members. He
said it was manifestly fair that he
should move to adjourn, and doing so
received unanimous support, and the
House at 7.05 o'clock adjourned, just
thirty-five minutes after the time
agreed upon for the Democratic cau
cus. The Democratic caucus was

0 YOU KNOW just what your cotton and corn
need, and are you furnishing it in such quantities
as required and in such shape that the
plant can uie it ?
Suppose you should put the food for your stock in a
box, mil it up and place it in their trough?would you ex?
pect them to thrive and grow fat ?
Well, did it ever occur to you that when you use lumpy,
badly mixed fertilizers you are putting this same proposi?
tion up to your crops?offering them plant food m ^uch
shape that they can't get to it ?
Fertilizers, to do your crops any good, must dissolve in
the soil waters. These are constantly in motion, rising to
the surface during the day and sinking at night?passing
and repassing the roots of the plant, which absorb the food
contained in the water?and this is the only way in which
the plant can feed.
Therefore, when you buy fertilizer, you s! mid do so
with the idea of furnishing food for your crop and on the
same principle that you should purchase food for your
stock. It should not only contain the necessary Ammonia,
Phosphoric Acid and Potash, but above all else these
should be in soluble form?the mechanical condition
of the fertilizer should be such as to permit the plant to
absorb every particle of it, and the goods should be manu?
factured frcm materials that will not give up their plant
food at one time, but furnish a steady supply throughout
the entire growing season.
This is tlic Certllizer you should have and can ifet?
in only one way. It is impossible to produce a goods like
this by the dry-mixing of raw materials, whether you do
this at home with a shovel and a screen or buy it from
someone who has made it the same way?the only differ?
ence being in the quantky.
These materials must be ground to a powder, arid it re?
quires machinery costing thousands of dollars to do it
properly. They must then be so manipulated that when
complete, you have a compound, each ounce of which is
exactly like every other ounce, and not a mixture, one
part of which would contain too much Ammonia and too
little Potash, while another part would be exactly the
opposite?and all of it contain plant food locked up and
Remember that the chemical analysis of a fertilizer is no
test of its crop growing qualities. The chemist can pul?
verize lumps and by the use of various means search out
the plant food ; your crop can't.
You can take an axe, break open the box and get the
corn; your mule can't.
Don't risk a crop failure !
Insure your peace of mind as well as your crop by using
