The anti Grefd; movement in Itoumania, and especially in Bulgaria, is daily assum ing greater proportions and threatens to become a seriousdanger to peace. The Bulgarian government, it ap pears, will be forced to take excep tional measures to terminate the dis turbances which are due to the anti Greek feeling with which the entire population of the principality is im bued. The eaune cf this feeling is the historical competition between Greece and Bulgaria for domination in the Balkans, which was recently re awakened and stimulated by their riv alry, which it is alleged has been arti ficially encouraged by the Turkish au thorities, and particularly by the atro cities of the GrfPk 'hands.

Lowden was nominated for congress by Republicans ot this dis trict to succeed Congressman Robert a I it r , i:ho was not a candidate for re election. 1 King Edward's Movements. Cronberg, Aug. 10. King Edward left Fried richshof at J:o0. Emperor William, Prince and Princess Fred erick Charles of Hesse Nassau and the Crown Princess Soph'- of Greece, accompanied him to t m Cronberg railroad station. The lea e taking of the sovereigns was particularly cor dial. The emperor accompanied the king to his compartment. Here they engaged in conversation till the traui was ready to move. King Edward proceeded to Marienbad, accompanied by Sir Frank Lascelles, the British ambassador to Germany, and the em peror returned to Friedrichshof. PERT PARAGRAPHS. People, affected with hollow heads always make a roaring noise. Dignity is an uncomfortable perch when the taffy is being passed. When your enemy is anxious to do you ti kindness turn him over to jour mother-in-law. People who never say anything may not mean half of it. If he doesn't, have a daily stomach ache the vacation boy feels that he isn't eating up to his opportunities. An appearance of meekness often covers up a lot of unholy mischief. It is as easy to pay a penance that doesn't punish as to play postotiice with a pretty girl. Poverty is a blessing that ranks with adversity in the development of char acter, and most people are quite williug that their enemies should have them. The tongue's chief mission is to dis tract attention from the delinquencies of other members of the body. It is a good thing that we gain strength from our burdens, for it is the only reward we get for serving some people. People who work because they love their work don't attract attention by refusing a raise in salary. Tjje redeeming quality of a bully is that he isn't nearly as terrific as he Carrie Smithmeyer are visiting in Urook ville. Mr. and Mrs. Will Jay of Ilushville, will spend Sunday of this week with Dr. Joseph Jay and family of West Richmond. Mrs. Anna Thomas arrived from Salt Lake City yesterday to spend severai days with friends in the city. Howard Ryder went to Cincinnati en business yesterday.

Until noon the time was happily spent in greeting one another, in general handshaking, in recalling by gone days and in noting the changes Father Time had wrought in the past year. About twelve o'clock it became ev ident to all that unless the tables had been substantially made, they would have been unable to beo- no beneath the weight of a most bounteous chicken feast. After all had partak en of the splendid repast, there ap peared on the scene ten gallons of ice cream which was heart'ly en joyed by all. About four o'clock in the evening officers were unpointed for the fol lowing year. Edgar Monk and E. E. Rothermel were re-elected President and Secretary-Treasurer.

The reunion last Saturday was certainly a success in every respect. The day was a pleasant one. a good breeze was astir, which kent the heat from being oppressive. Every one had a good time and when Ok- hour of departure came, feelings of re gret welled un in the hon-ts " all, for it had come all too soon.

I Minneapolis JouruaL Thousands Women ARE MADE WELL AND STRONG Success of Lydia E. Pinkhaci's Vegetable Compound Rests Upon the Fact that It Really Does Make Sick Women Well Thousands upon thousands of Ameri can women have been restored to health by Lydia E. Pinkhain's Vegvta I ie Compound. Their letters are on tile in Mrs. Pink ham's ofiiee, and prove this statement to be a fact and not a mere boast. Overshadowing indeed is the suocesa of this great medicine, and compared with it all other medicines and treat ment for women ure experiments. Why has Lydia E. Pinkhum's Vege table Compound accomplished its wide spread results for good? Why has it lived and thrived and done its gdorious work for u quarter of a century ? Simply and surely because cf its ster ling worth. The reason no other med icine bus even approached its success is plainly and positively because there is no other medicine in the world bO pood for women's ills. The wonderful power of Lydia K. PinUham's Vegetable Compound over the diseases of womankind is not lie cause it is a stimulant not because it is a palliative, but simply because it ia the most wonderful tonie and reeon structor ever discovered to act directly upon the uteriue system, positively Cl'Hixo disease and displacements and restoring health and vifjor. Marvelous cures are reported from all parts of the country by women who have Wen cured, trained nurt.es who have witnessed cures, and physicians who have recognized the virtue in Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Cora pound, and are fair enough to jrive credit where it is due. If physicians dared to be frank and open, hundreds of them would acknowledge that they constantly preserilo Lydia K. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound in sever cases of female ills, us they know by experience that it will effect a cure. Women who are troubled with painful or irreg-ular menstruation, backache, bloating- (or llatulence), leucorrhflca, falling-, inflammation or ulceration of the uterus, ovarian troubles, that "bearing-down" feeling-, dizziness, faiutness. indigestion, nervous pros tration, or the blues, should take im mediate action to ward off the seriou consequences and be restored to health and strength by taking Lydia E. Pink hain's Vegetable Compound. Anyway, write to Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass., for advice.

The Cambridge City Tribune of yesterday prints the follow ing: While at Chesterfield camp grounds James A. Boyd, of this city, had a picture made of his son, Edwin Earl, who died some 1.1 years ago at the age of 9 years. It is a perfect reproduc tion of the young gentleman while in life and in some instan ces is a remarkable work of art. The colors are good and the flesh tints as in life, and the eyes as char and distinct as was ever placed on canvas. In size It is about 2hx2r. The canvas is fine grain backed by cheese cloth. The picture, however, looks as if laid on the canvas much like nap appears on certain grades of cloth. Its method of making may seem peculiar to those who do not lay hold ot the doctrine of spiritualism. Mr. Boyd and his family were seated at a table next to a window. On either side of the table was a lady known to the world as the Bangs sitf sisters, spiritual artists. The can vas was placed net the window so as to get the benefit of the light. No one touched it. Hy means of slate writing the fami ly talked with the spirit of the dead boy. They asked that he stand for a picture, to which he consented, but requested that a picture be made as he now ap peared In the spirit world and if they were not satisfied he would fade away and appear on canvas as when he was in the flesh. Mr. Boyd says the picture by a se ries of what appeared as waves or rathf-r light and dark shad ows. When fully developed it did rot appear much different than in life, but was the same sweet-fair-haired boy. Since the family desired a picture as they had known him while on earth, the spirit image slowly faded away, and in a series of waves was re placed by an exact reproduction of the boy. The development, says Mr. Boyd, was very thril ling, many of the parts assuming shape much as in life. It Is a re markable production to say the least of it. and Mr. Boyd's, family are much gratified in its posses sion. After returning home X.X:6 dead boy's autograph appeared on the picture, just as the Bangs pisters said it would. It is in cap ital letters such a3 a young lad is much accustomed to making, and is an exact facsirnilie of his signature.
