I do not mean that Dr. Shoots Rheu
matic Cure can turn bony Joints Into flesh
strain. That Is Impossible. But it will
alrivc from the blood the polon that
sjjfcu-es pain and swelling, and tl-cn that
sJuTYhc end of Rheumatism. I know this so
well that I will furnish for a full month
my Rheumatic Cure on trial. I cannot
cure all cae within a month. It would
be unreasonable to expect that. But most
cases will jleld within 30 das. This
trial treatment will conInce jou that Dr.
Shoop's Rheumatic Cure is a. power
against Rheumatism a potent force
against disease that Is Irresistible
My offer is made to convince jcu of mi
faith, My faith is but the outcome of ex
perience of actual knowledge- I KNOW
what It can do And I know this so well
that I will furnish my remedy on trial
Simply write me a postal for my book on
Rheumatism. 1 will then arrange with a
druggist in our icinity so thjt sou can
secure six bott'es of Dr. Shoop's Rheu
matic Cure to make the test, lou maj

My remedy docs that, even In the most

Members of the Missouri Battleship Tes-
tlmontal, who had received the official no
tification of Major Wells Informing them
of their appointment on the committee,
approved of the p'.an set forth In the
Major's letter, that subcommittees be ap
pointed in the various organizations to
circulate subscription lists and obtain con
tributions. Theodore M. Ballard, chairman of the
committee, stated that he should appoint
a committee ot members of the Merchants'
"I shall endeavor to appoint on this
committee men who will work," said Mr.
Eillard.- "and to full cover the field 1
shall select ono member from each of the
five divisions of the exchange. To these
men will be left the circulation of the
"As to calling a meeting of the General
Committee, sucli action should not be
taken. In mj- opinion, until the members
have had time to select their subcommit

"I sei no reason whj St. Louis should
not contribute at least $3,000 to the testi
monial fund, and if the State at large will
Co as much, the testimonial win ue
worthy of the fifth State in the -Union.
"Every man selected by tho Major or
appointed on the subcommittees should
dcem.ltian honor and cndeivor to do his
pirt of the work. Unless all work In uni
son and under a definite plan, such as
the Mijor outlines in Ills letter, the work
that might be finished in a few dajs will
drag along for weeks."
Edward C. Eliot, president of the Civic
Improvement League, has not determined
on the committee he intends to appoint,
but will take action as soon as possible
along the lines suggested bj- Major Wells,
"I could not posslblv do justice to this
matter at present," said Mr. Eliot, "If I
had to work alone. The appointment of a
subcommittee will take some of tho work
of actual solicitation off mj hands, and
with the appointment of a committee of
four or five members of the league, the

If the fund was of .sufficient magnitude, to
give both the silver service and a library
or some gift that would bo of direct ad
vantago to the men
"It is a little previous to saj' what
form the testimonial should tike, as the
olficers of the ship should be consulted
ai to their needs."
' This mntter of a testimonial." said J.
C. Win Blarcom, president ot the Clear-irg-houe
Association, "is an expression
of the honor felt bj tho State for which
tl,e ship is named, and that the State of
Missouri has been honored cannot be
questioned A silver service is usuall)'

Stone, formcrlj Governor of Missouri, was
in nnili.nd this summer, and In speaking
of Canadian affairs, said:
"If Canada ever severs with Great Bri
tain and becomes independent, it -will be
her first step toward annexation with the
United States. Annexation would then
be almost inevitable and It might bring
about strained relations between this coun
try and England. I never para through
the beautiful St. Lawrence River and view
the hundreds of vessels fiUng the British
flag there unless I feel that the great river
and the country It belongs to should be
part of this Republic.
"The friendlv feeling In England for this
country that I saw in evidence on every
hand made me feel at times like cheering
for the British flag and I nm frank to say
that I have never felt quite that way be
fore." Tli o inns Rowland Elected.
