"My ambition in life is not money," Bays Prof. Adkin, the great healer who is daily curing men and women of the very worst diseases after learned doe tors have oronouncod their cases hope less. His method of treatment is some what mysterious, but the fact that he cures the sick when all else fails, when the doctors lose ho:e and science de spairs, Is demonstrated beyond contro versy. No matter whether you have Consumption, Kidney Trouble, Rheuma tism, Catarrh, Dyspepsia, or simply an ordinary Cold of Fever, they are all nlike to Prof. Adkin. He cures them all, he cures you quickly, painlessly, perma nently at your own home. He also tells you a secret method by which you may keep yourself in perfect health. With out exaggeration it can safely be said that Prof. Adkin is the most interesting, remarkable, and wonderful physician healer of the age. His only talk, his only thought is How to cure Incurables, to bring hope to the hopeless, joy, sun shine, and hapDiness to the miserable and suffering. He is truly carrying on a grand work. He is president of one of the largest healing institutions in the world. He employs twenty eminent phy sicians and specialists to assist him with his work. He spends thousands of dollars every year in giving free advice and help to the sick. No matter where you live, the service of the best special ists may be yours. All you have to do Is to write a letter to Prof. Adkin de scribing vour case and he will immedi ately diasnose your disease and pre scribe the proper home treatment for your speedy recovery. This will not cost you a single cent. No money is asked "for this service, none is taken. If you are sick and want to make a donation for the purpose of carrying on the work, such will be thankfully received. Prof. Adkin will also send every sick person who writes him within the next thirty days a free copy of his wonder ful new book, entitled "How to Be Cured and How to Cure Others." This book is highly indorsed by leading physicians, it contains invaluable infor mation in regard to diseases and what to do in cases of emergency. It should be in every home. Remember, it costs you nothing if you write to Prof. Ad kin now. Mrs. Paubert. cf 2322 North Tenth Street, Philadelphia, Pa., writes: "Your treatment has restored my mother to perfect health. It seems like a miracle, as the very best physicians gave me very little hope. They said her trouble was incurable. It seems as if she had almost risen from the dead." Mrs. C. A. Brownell, of Dane, Oklaho ma, writes: "I was tortured for months by terrible pains in my head, and this, together with loss of sleep began to af fect my mind. Your treatment has done wonders for me. I sleep well nights and those terrible pains in my head are gone. Thank God, hope has taken the rlace of despondency and I have a new lease of life." Alex Moffat, of 3XS Brown Street, Rochester, N. T., writes: "When I ap plied to you for treatment I was as I might say, a physical wreck, suffering from pains in the chest and stomacii, also poor digestion, and on the verge of nervous prostration. I had tried most everything and had about given up when I tried your treatment. My pains have gone, my nerves are strong, and I feel like a new- man. 1 wiih you success in your noble work." Mr. .1. N. Purdy, Pm-dy's, N. Y., writes "I have been suffering from severe stricture and bladder, trouble for over three years. 1 was given up by my physician' as incurable. My urine had to be drawn from me and the scaldinr and burning was intense. My suffering was almost unbearable. I took advan tage of your offer and to my great as tonishment I was relieved the second day. Your cures are certainly wonder ful." If sick be sure to write Prof. Adkin et once for free help. Be sure to state the leading symptoms of your disease, how long you have been sick, etc. Your letter will be treated with the strictest confidence and receive immediate atten tion. Address Prof. Trios. F. Adkin, of fice 331G. Rochester, N. Y. Richard Mansfield's special train cf nine cars was whipping through Kansas, running west from Kansas City, says the Chicago Record-Herald. The actor'3 own private car was, against his usual custom, attached to the extreme rear of the train, so that like a whip lash it got the full benefit of all the speed. Three of the star's Kansas Citv friends were dining with him in his car. He was on his way to open in Denver, and they had come out a couple of hun dred miles from the Kaw to wish him good speed on his western trip. The whole party was at the table and Mr. Mansfield was lifting a spoonful of soup to his lips when the train plunged round a sudden curve. The effect was some what disconcerting, and Mr. Mansfield called his old waiter. "Jefferson." he said. "I would like to speak to the conductor." The conductor came back through the train, took off his cap, and asked what was wanted. "How fast Is the train running just now?" asked the actor. "About S miles an hour, sir." "Well, aren't you afraid," purred the tragedian, "that my guests will get in digestion by eating so fust?" The conductor went forward, and in a few minutes the speed of the train slackened perceptibly. The special was running up the Pa cific coast from San Francisco to Ta coma. It was five hours late, and soon it became apparent that it would not be possible to reach Tacoma in time to open the performance at the regular hour. Presently Mansfield sent the fol lowing telegram to the manager of the Tacoma theater: "Hold audience until 9:30. Train un avoidably delayed." The Tacoma manager got that mes sage and groaned. The house had been sold out, and "no performance" meant a loss to him of more than $1,000. Hp had had experience with other actors, and he felt certain that 9:30 meant at least an hour later. He knows now that Mansfield is the most exact of men. At S:20 he decided to dismiss the audience and return the money. The pfop'-e were practically all out of the house and the hex office was empty when at S:40 Mans field and his company walked in. A dialogue followed which was warm and emphatic on both sides. It 'tooli place between the local manager and the actor in the lobby of the theater. It hir-ened that one cf the theater par ties had been late m leaving its dux. and was passing cut through, the lobby as Mr. Mansfield and the manager weri throwing vocal red pepper at each other. One of the ladies detached herself from the rest of the party and introduced her self to the actor. ";r. Mansfield," she said, "however badiy you may feel about the abandon ment of this performance, tne disap pointment is realiy ours. We Tacoma people have been looking forward to seeing you for years. i e had bought and crowded every seat in the ouse Now we are not to see you after ail. You may not come back here asrain for five jvars. So you see our misfortune is realiy greater tnan yours. Instead ol blaming the lical manager it ssems to me you should.be thinking what you can do for us. i. It was a flattering little sneecri, pret tily maae. and the tragedians rancor was appeased. "I am going- to play in Seattle to morrow evening." he said, "and if you. madam, your husband, and your friends will be m-s e-uests on mv car T will glad ly take you over to Seattle and give you a box at the performance. The invitation was accepted, and the trip v.-a.s made. On the wav a sudden friendship developed between the actor and his new found Tacoma friends. They impressed on him, again and again, the great loss which Tacoma feit in missing his performance, and finally roused ail the chivalry in Mansfield's nature. "Ladies," he said. "I will cancel my matinee engagement in Seattle and will take the train back to Tacoma on one condition. That is that you accept and distribute all the tickets in the house for that performance among your friends in Tacoma." The splendid courtesy was accepted, and Mansfield actually canceled" his matinee engagement in Seattle, the se.l3 for which had already been practically sold out, returned the -money, put his scenery and enmpany on the special train, and doubled back to Tacoma, where a performance was riven at which the --ouse was packed and not a person present paid a cent for his seat. Some years ago Dr. and Mrs. Lorir.g, of Washington. D. C, were the recip ients of a similar compliment from the actor. As the result of a friendly wager as to the success of one of his ventures a wager which Mansfield, taking the negative side, lot he gave a special performance of "Beau Brummel" at what is now Chase's theater in Wash ington, and everybody in the crowded house was the suest of Dr. and Mrs. Boring. Chicago didn't seem Inclined to depart, I concluded to get rid of it and eultir vate my new land at one and the same time. I therefore sot me a pick. hoe. and shovel, and every afternoon I was at work. "I didn't dare to rertn in mirn. ins, for if you once get outdoors in the country, you know how it is you doii't go in again. And there were other things that had to be done besides dig ging, and planting, and watching things grow. It's pleasant, though, for you can see results that is, the digging is pleas ant aner it is over with: And what about the orchestral con certs this winter?" v ell, vou've seen the li3t." was the answer. "The feature of the season will be that it has no feature. I have taken care to secure all the novelties of importance, and many of them we will have here before the cities of the east and of Europe do, but I have thought it best to arrange no series such as we had last veftp and the ves,r before. To tell the truth, orchestral lit erature is still young, and we really have had about all the kinOs of series that are feasible." ANOTHER NE"W PIAY HO USE.

Theodore Thomas retvrr.ed to Chi cago from his country home in New Hampshire this week, and when seen at his residence yesterday declared him self in the best of health, a statement to which his color, rlance .and bearing gave unquestionable confirmation, says the Chicago Tribune. He pointed with pride to the good-sized, well-matured, callous spots on the palms of his hands, and laughingly remarked: "Those didn't come from conducting." "I added a small piece of property to my 'farm' this year," he explained, "and as the cold which I took with me from HUMOR OF THE DAY. Farmer Eentover Col.

Public Interest Aroused by the State--- meat by Pipeman Oscar Stehlin o( the Indianapolis Fire Force. The fire department of Indianapolis is widely known for its efficiency and for the high physical standard of its members. This accounts in a measure for the interest that has attached to the rescue from almost certain death of a pipeman of Chemical Engine Com pany No. 1. It was known that the man was found by his captain to be in a state of nervous collapse, but the full facts are now published for the first time. The fireman, Oscar Stehlin, lives at No. 1610 East Tenth street, Indianap- Blip oils, where he was found by a reporter. In reply to questions he said: "When 1 entered the Pre department I was a hearty, . vigorous man. It was the cold, exposure and lack of rest, I suppose, that made my health break down. My nerves were in horrible shape. Night after night I would walk the floor, un able to get a wink of sleep. I had ner vous chiils and these were followed with hot flashes and terrible shooting: pains. Then, right afterward, I would feel as if I were freezing to death and would have to get close to a stove to get warm. "For a year I dragged along in this way, gTowing worse every day. My ap petite was gone, my color a sickly yel low, and my strength just about wasted away with my flesh. "I spent a great deal of money foi treatment, but could see no improve ment. The doctors did not seem to get at the root of my trouble. I was really in a state of nervous collapse when my captain spoke to me about my condi tion and said that I had better try Dr. .Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Feople. Well, I aid try them and had not been taking them for a week before a change came for the better. My nerves seemed quieter. I could sleep and feel rested in the morning and food began to ap peal to me again. The medinice was helping me -and I continued taking the pills until I had used about eight boxes. They brought about a complete cure. I cannot say half enough in praise of Dr Williams' Pink Pills for they saved my life. I should be in my grave now but for these pills." Mr. Stehlin's friends all know what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo ple accomplished for him, and his story is important to all who are suffering from nervous troubles. Dr. Williams' Ftnk Pills for Pale Feo ple are unlike other medicines because they act directly on the blood and nerves. This makes them invaluable in such diseases as locomotor ataxia, par tial rjsralvsis. St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous head ache, the after-effects of the grip, pal pitation of the heart, pale and sallow complexions and all forms of weakness either in male or female. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People are sold by all dealers, or will be sent postpaid on receipt of price, fifty cents a box, or six boxes for two dollars and fifty cents, by addressing Dr. Williams Medicine Company, Schenectady, N.
