VJh i. iiy , V t t Lj n I Is H Such as Pimples, Boils, Eczema, and other eruptions; Loss of Appetite, Bilious Turns, Fits of Indigestion and Headache, That Tired Feeling and General Lassitude, proceed from a vitiated condition of the blood, which is common in the Spring, and affects all the organs and tissues. It is a condition in which the blood circulates an accu mu lation of waste matters which litter the system and clog its processes. You have one or more of these Spring Ailments you rself, or you are one of the rare exceptions to the rule. It is at least a fair assumption that you, like most people, need -to purify your blood this Spring. Now, what will you take? what may do the work, or will do it?

"The Inspiration of the Word of God." Love ij the ' corner-stone of a 'woman's life. She builds all her hopes upon ana arouna tnose - tender affections which she cher ishes toward the ones who are dear to her, and which she looks to receive from them in return. This is woman's nature; it is the God given instinct that makes her a fond and tender sweetheart ; a comforting, helpful wife ; an ever-loving, solicitous, care-taking mother. When a woman feels that the responsi bilities and duties of wifehood and moth erhood have become irksome to her a burden and trouble rather than a source of uplifting and inspiration it shows that there is some deficiency in her physical jnake-up; some abnormal and unhealthy condition of the delicate and important special structure of womanhood. Many thousands of women annually write to Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo. N. Y., the eminent apeciftliHt in women's diseases requesting profes Etcmal advice which he is always clad to send without charge and telling hini of the marvel, cms i benefits they have received from his won derful "1-avorite Prescription" in building op tHeir special health and physical energy.

See agent tor particuJar ROYAL ACADEMY. Sargent Has Two Great Pictures on Exhibition. New York, May 4. A dispatch to the Tribune from London says: The Royal Academy contains two great and six minor Sargents and a Job lot of 1,815 miscellaneous works, includ ing water colors and architectural draw ings. . It is not a great academy, but Mr. Sargent redeems it from the reproach of conventional mediocrity. His most Im portant work is the portrait of the daughters of Mr. Wertheimer, in which the two figures, one in dark red and the other in white satin, are thrown into the foreground, while the air space in the room behind them Is indicated with marvelous technique. One has her arm around the other and is fairly carrying her along, while so intense is the im pression of health and vitality that both seem to be walking out of the picture frame. Both are In evening dress, with arms perfectly modelled. The brush work and technique of this picture exceed in boldness anything Mr. Sargent has recently done. The other great Sargent is a half length portrait of Mrs. Charles Russell. The face is not beautiful, but it ia weird in its expres sion of weariness, sadness and intensity of longing. It will haunt the memories of those who Eee it. The face and figure are brought out in the background with a simplicity of method worthy of Vel asquez and are lighted so as to show a feverish glow on the cheeks and pallor in the neck and clenched hands. The white costume, with touches of dull pink Is painted with softness and refinement. The other Sargents are Mrs. Cazalet and two children, with a red and black color scheme; a portrait group of Sir Charles Sitweil, wife and three children and portraits of Professor Bywater, Sir Charles Tennant and C. S. Loch. Mr. Sargent also has a unique sculptured crucifix. Benjamin Constant's portrait of Queen Victoria in the chair of state in the house of lords is unreal, suggesting an interior painted with theatrical effects of light and the sovereign added as an after thought. She never sat for it, and the story is true that she found fault with the quality of the color blue in the scarf, and sent the painter a piece of ribbon to let him know how the historic Garter should be painted. Mr. Shannon has six portraits, includ ing an exquisite one of his daughter, and a flower girl with a baby. Alma-Tadema has a portrait and a fine study of flower painting and of the beauty of marble surfaces. Adwin A.Abbey's "Knights Templars" is not one of his best works. Alfred Par sons, Alfred East and Mr. Waterlow have the best landscapes. Lucy Kemp Welch has a spirited picture, "Lord Dundonald's Dash Into Ladysmith,"with the horses admirably painted. MT . .

SPORTINGJ.EWS. Sharkey Won In a Hough and Tumble Match. Russell Lasted But Four Rounds at Denver. WAS DISAPPOINTMENT No Science Displayed, Simply a Wrestling Contest. Referee Finds Difficulty In Sep arating Them. Denver, Colo.. May 4. Sailor Tom Sharkey put out "Big Fred" Russell, the California heavyweight. In the fourth round of what waa scheduled to be a ten round go before the Colorado Athletic association here last night. It was char acterized by rough and tumble tactics engaged In by both, science playing but little part. There waa much clinching and rough work throughout and It seem ed that each had a chance to win by landing a wild ewing at any time. In the first round there was little leading by either. They clinched and fought wildly, and the referee had the greatest difficulty in separating them. In the succeeding rounds Russell endeavored to throw Sharkey to the floor ty main strength and succeeded in doing so sev eral times. In the third round Russell landed some good body blows, which seemed to knock the breath out of the sailor. He was groggy at the end of the round, and if Russell had bored in he might have won the fight at this period. In the fourth round both men, after hav ing been cautioned by the referee that they must fight and not wrestle, started out to obey his instructions. It was not long, however, until they were clinch ing and holding and hanging on to each other, with the referee earnestly implor ing them to fight fair. Sharkey broke awav from a clinch, and as he did so landed right and left swings on Russell's jaw putting him down, and as Russell arose Sharkey sent m the nnismng punch, a half swing on the ear. -Fight by rounds: ' Round 1 Sharkey misses left swing. They clinch. Sharkey misses another left; they break slowly. Sharkey lands light left on the head as Russell rushes in. Both swing wild and clinch. The referee has a hard time separating them.

Topeka Club Seems to Have XOBt Its Luck Defeated at Emporia. Emporia,Kan., May 4. The Washburn college baseball team, of Topeka, met a defeat at the hands of the Emporia col lege team at Midway park here Friday, afternoon. The game was about even up to the last.but was a slugging match. Both teams batted heavily. Washburn plays the Normals here today and the result will be an invite to the college normal game. Gabriel, Kmporia's catch er, did the star work of the day, his cunning in stealing bases being a no ticeable feature. Moser, Emporia's sec ond baseman, also did good work, mak ing the only double' play of the day. Randolph, for Emporia, struck out five men; Gill, for Washburn, six. Score by innings: R.H.L.

Missouri and Kan sas universities met Friday afternoon on the Columbia baseball diamond in a onesided game, which was witnessed in almost utter silence by the spectators. This was the beginning of the season. A big crowd was present and brilliant work was. done by the home team, in spite of the fact that on its recent tour of Missouri and neighboring states only one victory went to its credit. Kansas beat Missouri in Friday's game 13 to 4. Kansas started like a winner and made three scores in the first Inning. When Missouri went to bat they were rattled. The Kansas battery was confident and sure of an easy thing. Spectators said the home team played like sheep, and the criticism was not unjust. The record of the Missouri team this season has been a round of failures. The game with Kansas will be repeated today, but the Missouri team has little hope of even a good showing.

The first information Smith's Louis ville friends had of his large winnings came in a telegram to Charles Hughes, his former trainer. It was as follows: "Charles Hughes, Race Track, Louis ville: Just cleaned up $100,000 on Union Pacific. C. H. S." Chicago horsemen who are now at the Louisville track toid Hughes today that Smith had been buying heavily on the stock market for ten days, and that he had already cleared $400,000 before this deal. It was said today that he and four other men had formed a pool on Union Pacific, and that each won $100, 000 in the day. Smith's winning is responsible for the story that he would soon return to the turf with a string of horses. BLOOMER GIRLS PLAT BALL. Aggregation Touring Kansas Gives Exhibition at Concordia.

Situation of Country's Business Fine Bays Dun. New Tork, May 4. R. G. Dun & Co. '3 Weekly Review of Trade saya: The greatest activity ever seen In Wall street diverts attention in the matter of distributing and manufacturing opera tions. But while on every hand stock market interests are counseling caution and attempting to prove that prices are really more than the condition of some of our railroads warrant, the fact re mains that, without a brilliant crop out look and a great activity of general trade. Wall street could hild no such carnival. Labor difficulties are fewer and less than for several years before in the first week of May, and prices of mer chandise hold well. Stability of prices and vigorous prose cution of work at mills indicate the wholesome condition of the iron and steel market. Throughout the entire range of products of this industry the current demand for immediate delivery exceeds all previous records, yet makers maintain a conservative position and prices are not pushed up to the danger point. It is in the finishing steel plants that there is the greatest urgency for shipments and full capacity is assured for the next three months. After July there is a prospect of respite. Judging by the light engagement of pig iron, and following the unparalleled activity of the past six months, a season of com parative quiet would not be surprising nor unwelcome. There was a rush to get orders for steel rails before higher prices became effective and the erection of new office buildings provides a great demand for structural material which is also in considerable request on for eign contracts. Dullness is still reported in the tex tiles. A further reduction to 2 15-18 cents for standard print cloths did not accelerate operations, as buyers appear confident that goods will soon be avail able at 2 cents. This unsatisfactory condition of the manufacture is not help ful to raw cotton, nor Is there support in better prospects for next crop and port receipts far in excess on the last year movement. Still there is a feeling that the decline has gone far enough and this negative influence holds the market fairly steady. There is no im provement in woolen and Coates Broth ers' average of one hundred quotations of wool on May 1 was 17.71 cents, against 17.99 cents on April 1, and 22.7 per cent a year ago. Small concessions are reported in a few grades of shoes and in other cases man ufacturers are making slightly better goods at old figures. Western jobbers are ordering more freely and shipments from eastern shops are larger than in the previous week, or a year ago. RHEUMATISM DR. RADWAY & CO.

Further advances were secured in the cereal market, Chicago speculators be ing forced to cover May corn contracts at 55 cents. 1 Attractive buyers brought more liberal receipts at interior cities and also stim ulated operations on the farm, traders have forced the next crop of options to what seems an unreasonable level, since there is evidence of a large yield, despite delayed planting through excessive moisture. Wheat also attained a high point, advancing in sympathy with coi n. According to certain correspondents of R. G. Dun & Co., there is reason to ex pect a heavy epring wheat crop this year. In the principal states a full acreage has been planted and the weather is most favorable for germina tion. On the Pacific coast and in other domestic spring wheat sections, as well as in Manitoba, a larger area than usual is devoted to raising wheat this year. The marvelously healthy condition of business is best appreciated when it is disoovered that the defaults last month were the smallest in 91 months, with the exception of May to August, 18P9. inclu sive. In manufacturing lines there wet e but 163 failures, with a total indebted ness of $1,997,694, against ITS last year, for J4.514.003. As 18S9 reported the smallest liabilities of any full year in two decades, last month's good showing is made manifest by default in manufac turing concerns S777.975 smaller than two vears ago. Trading failures were 555, for J3. 168, 823. and banking defaults were $529,000. The death rate was only three-flftieth9 of 1 per cent of ail firms in business, and losses averaged $4.70; not a serious embarrassment to general trade. The proportion of unpaid Mil was less than 46 cents for each $1,000 of solvent payment through clearing houses.
