A POOR. CRUTCa.
Experience is a dear teacher, as tliosewho pin their
V faith to Mercury find out sooner or later. This power
f ' ful poison combined with Potash, is the treatment gen
erally prescribed for Contagious Blood Poison, but failure
and disappointment is the invariable result. These min
erals drive in the sores and eruptions, and apparently- the
disease is gone and the patient believes the cure perma
nentt but soon learns better when the old S3rmp"toms
return almost as soon as the treatment is left. off. You
must either keep the system saturated with mercury or endure the tortures
of sore mouth, ulcerated throat and the mortification that one naturally
feels when the body is covered with disgusting sores, rashes, copper-colored
Splotches and other aggravating symptoms of this vile disease. '
Mercury and Potash are poor crutches, and their use eventually breaks
down the constitution, ruins the digestion and cause the bones to decay.

FAITH IN WICHITA
S. Naftzger Buys Another
Lot on Douglas Ave.
COMPARISON OF VALUES
What Mr, Watson Says
Great Milling Ccenter
John A. Burt and William Chalfont of
Boston have sold lot 74 on Dougla3 ave
nue to L.. S. Naftzger of this city for
$5,250. The deed was passed yesterday
and the money paid. Mr. Naftzger will
build a three story brick block on the
lot next Spring.
President Naftzger of the Fourth Na
tional bank of this city is' one of the
,men who has turned his faith in "Wichita
into cash, or what Is better into business
property that pays a good per cent on
his investment. Lot 74 on Douglas ave
nue is the first west of what is known
as the I?ichey building in the first block
west of the Santa Fe tracks.
The sale of this lot shows how Wichita
property has advanced during the past
few years. Six years ago Mr, Naftzser
bought the Richey block for $3,500. It
is a substantial well built three-story
brick building. The adjoining lot which
Mr. Naftzger bought yesterday and which
he thinks he got at a bargain has an
old shell of a one story building on it
hardly worth the moving off. He prac
tically paid within $250 for the naked lot
of what he paid for the other lot and
fine building six years ago.
President L. S. Naftzger and .Cashier
J. M. Moore of the Fourth National
bank own all of the block on the north
side of Douglas avenue fcom the alley
west of Santa Fe to St. Francis avenue
except fifty feet. They had the money
and the faith in Wichita and the two
put together did the work. One way to
make money withput robbing somebody
else Is tojnvest in a growing town and
that Is what these two officers of the
Fourth National bank have been doing.
It would be interesting to know just
how many people there are in this city
who do not have any definite idea of the
advancement that has been made in
growth. It is said that people who live
In great historic times do not realize
the Importance of what jt transpiring
around them and to a certain extent, that
is true of the growth of a city. Many
people who have liver for years this city
have driven to the north part, or have
ridden on the street cars and seen the
clouds of black smoke rising from tho
Dold and Cudahy packing houses, the
Watson Mills and the Neveling Elevator
and that is about all. Superintendent
Darrigrand of the Dold house said yes
terday that every few days some one
will come up and go through the packing
houses and then they will tell him that
they had been in Wichita for so many
years and never before had any definite
idea of what the packing houses were.
The packing houses, mills, elevators,
stockyards and other interests clustered
about Twenty-first street give a good
index to tho growth of Wichita. Dold
and Cudahy are demonstrating that here
is the proper location for packing houses
and the Watson3 are convincing the
world that no other place In the Kansas
hard wheat belt has equal advantages
for the location of a merchant mill.
Wichita products are winning their way
in the markets of tho world and our
cured pork and flour are in greater de
mand than the ability of these men to
The capacity of the Watson Mills has
been increased to one thousand two hun
dred barrels of flour a day and still it
can not supply tho demand for flour.
Mr. Watson has signed a contract with
the Misslouri Faclfic for the shipment
of forty thousand bags of flour for ex
port and last week he turned down orders
for thirty thousand sacks. Tho mill Is
running day and night and it can not
fill the orders for flour.
Kansas hard wheat flour is winning
its way in the markets of the world,"
said Mr. D. Watson yesterday. "We
would still further enlarge the capacity
of our mill but we will first have to build
flour house east of the mills and front
ing on the Neveling elevator switch.
Just as soon as we can get that done we
will double tho -capacity oZ the mill.
"We can sell all the flour we make
and more. We are getting pretty plenty
of wheat now but we have only a storage
capacity of thirty thousand bushels.
When we keep the mill humming day and
night we like to have a pretty good sur
plus of wheat on hand. We have made
an nrrangement with Air. leveling for
storing one hundred thousand bushels of
wheat this fall and it seems to mo that
the business that is coming to him will
necessitate the enlargement of his ele
vator pretty soon."
People are learning that flour made
from the Kansas hard wheat Is better
than that made from soft wheat and
they are calling for It. Wichita is in
tho center of the cream of tho Kansas
hard wheat section and what the millers
are doing here will induce other millers
to come here and the prediction made
by the Eagle some time ago that Wich-
ta was destined to become the great
hard wheat milling center seems about
to be consuraated.

HORSE KILLED BY CAR.
William Llppencott Loses His Fine
William Llppencott went out riding last
evening and now he has a broken baggy
and his fine roadster Is dead, it all
came about by a collision with a North
Main street electric car.
Mr. Llppencott Is employed at the Puis
restaurant and after his day's work was
done he went out for a ride. He was
the owner of a fine young horso that
showed some speed and a rubber-tired
road wagon. He was proud of his rig
and he was heartbroken when he saw
his horse lying in the street with his
leg broken and in a fix that he had to he
Mr. Llppencott was driving, west on
Second street and came to Main street
just as the north bound Riverside and
the South Main street cars were pass
ing. He checked his horse until, the Riv
erside car was past and then whipped
up. Het did not see the south bound
car until the front of the car was within
twenty feet of his horse. He tried to
turn short, but the horse, which was a
young one, only turned its head and "re
fused -to go.
The motorman reversed the. power and
tried to stop his car but he was too close
and the car struck the horse with sut;
ficient force to knock" the glass out of
the front of the car. The- poor animal
was knocked down and Its hind leg mash
ed above the knee. Those who saw
the occurrence said It was purely an
accident and unavoidable.
TWIGQ SHOT HIMSELF.
So Coroner's Jury Decided Yesterday
Coroner Cooper held an inquest over the
remains of Gilbert Twigg. the Winfield
murderer, yesterday morning and about
ten witnesses were examined. Dr. Ja
cobus, Ned Otis and George Nichols were
the important ones. Dr. Jacobus could
not say -'whether there were gunpowder
marks on Twigg or not, but said It was
possible for him to shoot fiimself and
leave no powder marks.
George Nichols denied shooting Twigg,.
but said he saw him fall.
Ned Otis said he fired at Twigg, but
did not know whether he hit him or not.
Examination brought ''out the fact that
Otis used a 2S-caliber revolver, and tho
bullet which killed Twigg was a 32.
Tho jury returned a verdict that Gil
bert Twigg was killed by a shot from a
gun fired by his own hands.
Notwithstanding the verdict of the
jury, many people continue to believe
that Night Watch Nichols killed Twigg.
Gilbert Twigg, Sterling Race, Roy
Davis and Port Smith were buried yes
terday afternoon at Winfield. Dawson
Billiter was taken to his home at Milan,
and William Bourman was buried at Ox
ford. Tho concerts by Caman's band have
been indefinitely postponed, and descript
ive pieces where blank cartridges are
fired have been cut out entirely.

Prominent Church and W. C. T. U.
Worker Passed Away",
Mrs., Mason died suddenly at her home
1013 North Lawrence avenue at 1:30 yes
terday afternoon. Her death was peace
ful and quiet, and came after an" Illness
which lasted but twenty minutes. As
death closed her eyes she did not real
ize that she was passing into another
world, and she experienced no pain, or
fear, believing that at the most she was
only passing Into a fainting spell. Two
of her daughters, her physician. Dr. Pur
due, and a few of tho neighbors were In
the room at the time, b.ut she bid none
of them goodbye, not knowing that she
was about to leave this world.
For several years Mrs. Mason has not
been in the best of health. At about
this time of year, for the last few sum
mers, she has sutiered irom acute in
digestion. Tills summer, however, she
had been feeling no worse than usual and
yesterday she was able to be around the
house. At noon she was in her usual
health, and none of the family had the
least thought of the danger that was
Impending. At ten minutes after one eho
suffered a fainting spell. She became
very weak and sank rapidly. When Dr.
Purdue arrived a few minutes later, htr
life was ebbing and it was impossible
to revive her.
The cause of her death Is not definitely
known. Dr. Purdue offered two explana
tions; one that it was due to an internal
hemorrhage, and the other that the acute
Indigestion from which she has suffered,
has weakened the nerves which con
trolled her heart and the action of this
organ became paralyzed.
When Mrs. Mason passed away one of
her daughters was down town. Her hus
band, Frank A. Mason, had gone on a
drive into the country and her other two
daughters, Etta and Catalina. were with
her. Miss Ann was telegraphed for and
arrived only a few moments after her
mother had breathed her last Mr. Ma
son did not learn of his bereavement un
til ho returned at five in the evening,
Mrs. Henrietta Mason was sixty-seven
years old, and has spent the last twenty
years of her life in this city. During
this time she was always an active work
er in the W. C T. U. and church circles.
She was a member of the Methodist
church, and was especially faithful and
earnest in her work in the Women's For
eign Missionary Society. On account of
her beautiful life she has many friends
who will mourn her sudden death.
The funeral will be held from the home,
at 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. Her
pastor. Rev, Lynch will conduct the ser
vices and Interment will be made In
Maple Grove cemetery beside the grave
of her only son.
