"Our solicitors will begin canvasling the city at once-taking orders for tele phones, which are to be placctd as soon as the line is complete.

It's a Vexatious Tangle. Mrs. Thompson claimed the right to uposess the house on the ground that she had sublleased it from John Powers, who claiwned to have I1' sed It from Andrews, and her suit was brought to gain pos session of it. She was ejected from the house by Mrs. Nixon's adherents and secured a re straining order from the district court against them, and the order to show cause to have been heard today was upon the application for an Injunction during the pendency of the action. The famous struggle fir possessi,,n of the house is in a torpid slale nlow on account of the interference of the upper court. The Andrews people are in tem porary possession, which ntny become permanent possession providing the case in finally adjudicated in their favor. RECOVERS STOLEN GOODS.

HEUMATISM A Demon of Pain Rheumatism seems 'to take a fiendish delight in torturing its victims. No mode of punishment ever invented by man, or practiced by devil-possessed savage, has caused more bodily suffering, such deep, racking pains, as this pitiless disease. Rheuma tism leaves in its trail distorted muscles, crooked and misshapen joints and limbs, and the intense pain and agony endured is reflected in the haggard and furrowed counte. nance of the sufferer. Rheumatism makes us grow old and decrepid before our time, and many an one in the full vigor of manhood has been suddenly stricken by this ruthless disease, and made almost as helpless and dependent as an infant. Chained to the invalid's chair or hobbling about on crutches, and continually tormented with pain, the patient in desperation resorts to the use of opiates, which deaden the pain but lead to ruinous habits. There is no. disease so aggressive and stubborn as Rheumatism after it becomes well intrenched or fixed in the system, and no liniment or other external application can check it or do any permanent good. Rheumatism is not due to outside influences or causes, but is a constitutional disease, an internal inflammation produced by a too acid condition of the blood. Waste matter that should have been cast out of the body is retained, fermentation takes place, Uric, Lactic and other acids form and are absorbed into the blood and as it circulates through the system every joint, membrane, tissue and nerve is saturated with these corrosive, irritating acids; when REPEATED FAILURES, THEN RELIEF. Mr. Wim. L. Xill, of Winston, . 0., at one exposure to cold or damp or a spell of indigestion will bring tim. a tr.i.ein, g al.eman an. w.ll know on a fierce attack that almost takes the breath by its in North and south arolina anda irgeila, by says: Two 'years alo my blood was in suddenness and severity. The parts affected become wretohe oondition, an in 7ddition to other Sodilly ailmonts I sfred sevoreoly from itiflamed and swollen, and every movement is attended IRhumatism.

I hywe thq there is always a soreness and weakness of the back and highest opinion of . 3. 3. for it is the only dull throbbing pains in the muscles and joints and an ever medicine that did me any good." increasing stiffness of the limbs. This Demon of Pain attacks the old and young, the strong and the weak-no one is exempt, but from middle life to old age is the time when its assaults' become most frequent and severe. At this period the vital energies begin to wane the blood grows. weak and thin, and is easily chilled, the circulation becomes uncertain and slow and there isi scarcely a moment's freedom from pain in some part of the body. The treatment of Rheumatism must be internal; some remedy that can reach and! neutralize the poisonous acids and cleanse the circulation. S. S. S. a purely vegetable! medicine, acts promptly and surely in all Rheumatic cases, purifying and invigorating the impoverished blood, eradicating all impurities from the system, and sending a stream of rich new blood to wash out the irritating particles that are causing the inflammation and pains. In chronic cases, or thosq developing late in life, it is especially effective, warming and enriching the blood, restoring nervous energy and stimulating the failing organs, improving the appetite and digestion, building up the general health, and thus fortifying the system against the tortures of Rheumatism. Alkalies, Potash and mineral remedies have an opposite effect, destroying the delicate lining of the stomach and often permanently impairing the constitution. S. S. S. is guaranteed entirely vegetable, and a spe cific in all Rheumatic troubles. Our Physicians will gladly advise, without charge, all who write them about their case, and we will mail free our 'special book on Rheumatism. ___ THE SWIFT SPECI.FIC COMPANY, Atlanta, Ga.

Iclinze, the M.lonna Ore Pur chasing clomopanly, a corloration, and others, to depreclate the value of the stock of the Parrot Silver and Copper company to the great Injury of all its stiockholdlers, anid to tlake the tItan agemnent and control of tile business af fairs of the company from its lawfully elected oilicers and directors, and to sec;ure by Jllcans of fraud and imposi tion upon this court, the appointment of a receiver who would agree with such' conslilrators to so conduct the business and affairs of the corporation as to de preclate the market value of the stocks, and by the fraudulent handling of the product of the mines enrich themselves at the expense of the company. Plan to Divert Profits. "That the Montana Ore Purchasing company owns and operates a smelter in the city oC Butte, and it was the In tent and purpose of the conspirator's through such receivership to cause the ores of defendant company to be turned over to the Montana Ore Purchasing compaitny's smelter for treatment at great and unnecessary cost. to the Parrot com pany, and by such and other fraudulent means the profits of the operation of the mines of the Parrot company were to be diverted from the shareholders of that company to the use of the conspirators. "That pursuant to such conspiracy among other things the said John Mac. linnlss rcquired the stock now tipon the books of the company in his name and instituted the present action." Verdict of Not Guilty. Mary Steinbach was tried in Justice O'Connor's court at Walkerville yester day on a charge of disturbance, pre ferred by Mrs. Minnie Knuty, but a conviction was not obtained. Mrs. Steinbach keeps a boarding house and Mrs. Knuty was one of her boarders. They had some trouble and Mrs. Knuty accused Mrs. Steinlach of using abusive language towards her. The case was aired through an inter preter and at its conclusion the jury said not guilty. The defendant thanked the jurymen. HOTEL ARRIVALS. At the Thornton-J. L.
