King Edward VII, who returned to
England from u vacation ten day#

night In the presence of his family,
after an Illness of less than a

than three days.

Pneumonia Caused Death.
Pneumonia, following bronchitis, is
believed to have been the cause of
death, but the doctors thus far have
1,-1 ? 'Si
refused to make a statement. Some
of the liing'b friends are convinced
that worry over the critical political
situation which confronted him, with
Sleepless nights, aggravated if it did
not cause the fatal illness.
Capital In Sadness,
The Intelligence that the end of
King Edward's reign had come, was
not a surprise at last. The people
bad been expecting it any h^ur
flpce the evening's bulletin was posted
at Buckingham palace and Hashed
throughout the kingdom. The capital
received It without excitement but
sadly, for the klnir. with ln? own
pie, was unquestionably one of tho
most popular rulers In the world.
They regarded him as one of tho
gtrongest forces making for tho stability
of the peace of the empire.
His Last Utterance.
One of the last utterances attributed
to King Edward was: "Well, it Is
ntl over, but I think I have done my
duty." He seemed then to have reached
a full realization that his death
was appoachlng.
fho queon and others of the royal
family and four doctors had been con
Jtantly In tho sick room throughout

death, the king was was in a comatose

The foundation for his fatal illness

The old throat affection of the I

Costa Rica Desolated; Thousands
Maimed and Homeless.
For days CVntral America lias been
shaken by violent earthquake shocks.
For the seventh time in it.s history
Cartago, former capital oi Costa Rica,

reports received here, give the
following as the extent of tha disaster:

miles to t'10 southeast, are both reported
to have met the fate t?f th?j
larger city.
The volcanoes Turlalba and trasu,
already pftftluliy 01 wholly in eruption,
give signs of a severe outbreak.
The entire population of the central
and northern sections of Costa Rica
is in terror. The railroad running
from hero to the north, with spurs
to Cartago and San Jose, is tied up
it is helU'ved that the line has been
completely wrecked in places and
that its reconstruction for a great portion
of its length will prove necessary.
All wires are down. The full
extent ot the disaster is beyond tho
grasp of startled Costa Rica.
One of the richest parts of the
country lies deaolated, the wreckage
of Its houses covering hundreds of
dead, and aid is urgently needed.
Though Cartago, according to the fullest
reports available, bore tho brunt
of the shook, the earthquake affected
a wide area, fully 200 miles in length
and extending to Nicaragua The
towns along the San Juan river, running
near the boundary between Cos
ta Rica ami Nicaragua, have all felt |
the shocks severely, according to dlspatch09
from Greytown. Couriers arriving
here brought news of damage
done to San Carlos, Castillo, Viejo
and Ochoa. Throughout tin; valley,
the shocks have played havoc, and In
at least oiig place the course of the
river has been changed.

of a tree which bears yellow flowers
and leathery, laurel like leaves. The
name of the pigment indicates the
country from which It comes, for gamboge
is simply a corruption of Cam

How often do you
eat this food?
A short time ago there appeared in
the columns of one of the prominent
maga^inc8 an article on building brain
and muscle by the proper selection of
the foods you eat.
A good many poople were surprised
to find oatmeal placed at the top of the
list of foods recommended; but if the
article had appeared in an English or
Scotch paper every reader would have
expectcd to see first place given to
good oatmeal.
As a matter of fact Great Rritian
and Europe come to u? for tremendous
quantities of Quaker Oats because it
represents totnem perfect food, being
the richest In flavor and best in cleanliness
and purity, of all oatmeals.
