as hernia. In the active and reckless little ones, who make the sunshine of our
hearts and homes. In very fatal, and. unhappily, very common. In the Hospital
for Ruptured and Crippled. New York, one-fourth of the entire number of
hernias received and treated were those of children under 14. The younger
the patient when treatment is begun, the shorter the time necessary to effect
a cure. To neglect these cases Is criminal, as even when the children survive
they are incapacitated for life from entering the army or navy, from any ac

My treatment Is singularly successful with children, whom I take from
earliest Infancy. Very few treatments are all that is necessary to restore to
them tho heritage of a sound and perfect constitution.
In conclusion. It cannot be too urgently pointed out that hernia, whether
exhibited In man, woman or child. Is a disease that It never pays to neglect.
It Is not so easy in these days to secure a competence and prenide for family,
old age and death even under the most favorable circumstances. How great
Is tho difficulty Increased when handicapped by the constant gnawing of this
terrible disease. There Is no age, sex or station in life that can afford to
ignore these facts. As a mere business speculation it Is better to call on me at
once and avail yourself of the cure I offer, at a moderate expense. What, in
deed. Is the latter but a mere trifle when compared to the risks, humiliations
and wretchedness ever attendant upon him who pays host to a rupture? Nor
can yoa afford to delay, as you cannot tell what evil a day may bring forth.

The True Story of the Invention of
Wilson's Common Sense Ear Drams
Told by Geo. H.WlIson, the Inventor.
I was deaf from infancy. Eminent doctors,
surgeons and ear specialists treated me at
great expense snd yet did rn no rood. I tried
all the artificial appliances that claimed to re
store hearing, but they failed to benefit me
in the least. I even went to the best spe
cialists In the world, but their efforts were

I grew desperate: my deafness tormented me.

and after patient years of study, labor . and
r tonal expense I perfected something that
round took the place of the natural ear
drums, and I railed It Wilton's Common Sense
Bar Drum, which I now wear day and night
with perfect comfort, and do not even have to
remove them when washing. No one can tell I
m wearing them, as they do not show, and Mm
they give no discomfort whatever I scarcely
know it myself.
With these drums I can now hear a whisper.
I Join tn the general conversation and hear
everything coins on around me. I can hear a
sermon or lecture from any part of a large
church or ball. My aeneral health Is Improved
because of the great change my Ear Drums
hart made In my life. My spirits are bright
and cheerful. I am a cured, changed man.
Since my fortunate discovery it is no longer
necessary for any deaf person to carry a trum
pet, a tube, or any other snob old-fashion
makeshift. Mr Common sense Ear Drum Is
built on the strictest scientific principles, con
tains no metal, wires, or strings of any kind,
and s entirely new and up to date in alt re
spects. It Is so small that no one can see It
when In poeltlon. yet It collects all the sound
waves and focuses them against the drum head,
causing you to hear naturally and perfectly.
It will do this even when the natural ear drums
are partially or entirely destroyed, perforated,
scarred, relaxed, or thickened. It fits any
ear. from childhood to old age. male or female,
and aside from the fact that-It does not show.
It never causes the least Irritation, and can be
vstd with comfort day and night without re
moval for any cause.
With my device I can cure deafness In any
person, no matter how acquired, whether from
catarrh, scarlet fever, typhoid or brain fever.

New York, April D. Beef and mutton
from the Argentine Republic, by the ship
load, to be sold here in competition with
the products controlled by the Beef Trust,
Is the promise held out by a syndicate of
capitalists, who have obtained concessions,
secured options and laid plans for opera
tion on a large scale.
At the ofllce of the Consul General from
Argentina, in the Produce Exchange build

made for a slto for a large refrigerating
plant and wharves for ocean-going steam
ships to carry beef and mutton to this
According to the information which has
reached the Consul General. Scnor It. Al
varez de Toledo, a line of refrigerator
steamers is to bo established between
Buenos Ayres and New York, and beef
equal to the beat product of our Western
plains Is to be shipped here. Lamb and
'mutton that will hold its own with Can
ada's best is Included In the project.
It is said that the beef and mutton will
be offered here at prices considerably less
than those maintained by the Beef Trust.
In European markets beef and mutton
from the Argentlno Republic have been In
keen competition with American meats for
several years.
Shipped from the South American Re
public in refrigerator steamers to J.ondon,
Liverpool and other ports, beef has sold
In large quantities at from 6 to 8 cents
wholesale. The Beef Trust has met theso
prices abroad, but has Invariably obtained
higher rctos here.
There have been no less than live groups
of capitalists and persons Interested in
beef and provisions who have made in
quiries at the Argentine Consulate during
the last year regarding the shipment of
meat products here.
"We are not at liberty to give the names
of the persons who have obtained the con
cession." said a representative of Senor de
Toledo yesterday. "We were called upon
about three months ago by a man who
later went to Argentine, and after spend
ing two months there Investigating the
business of exporting beef ana mutton
has returned to this city.
"We are Informed that he has pur

Official statistics complied by the Min
ister of Agriculture of the Republic of
Argentina give the total exports of beef
for 1903 as 1.01J.SS5 quarters. The exports
of lamb and mutton for the year were

been built up Blnce 1SS3. when the flrst re
frigerating plant was established in
jjuenos Ayres. There are now five large
operating there. They are the
River Platte

oansmena Kerrlgeratlng Company, the
Las Faunas Produce Company, E. Terras
son and the La Blanca Company.
In 1302 Edward and William V. Casey of
London attempted to combine the Argen
tine companies and form an alliance with
the Beef Trust of this country, covering
the foreign trade. The attempt failed.
Beef of good quality is sold in Buenos
Ayres at 251 cents per pound on the hoor.
The very best beef for export purposes Is
sold at 3 cents a pound, while poorer
grades are quoted as low as Hi cent a
pound. Mutton Is quoted at about J3.C0
per carcass, or about 3 cents a pound.
.. tall beef of good quality In Argen
tina, may be had for 22 cents a kilo Argen
tine money, which la equivalent to about
VI cents a pound American money. Mut
ton retails at R4 cents. It Is claimed that
steamers can nuts the trip to this port
in three days less than from Buenos
Ayres to London, and that Argentine beef
can be delivered here cheaper than In Eng
land. Considerable rwcrecy Is maintained as to

University of Chicago Professor
Thinks He Has Found It.
Chicago, April . A plant, which may
prove valuable to botanists as a "miss
ing link," has been brought to the Uni
versity of Chicago by Professor Charles
J. Chamberlain, who recently returned
from an expedition to Jalapa, Mexico,
where grows the only patch In the world
of this rare species.
He secured six of the large, pine
applelike fruits, which he expects to study
with a view toward establishing a rela
tion between modern plants of the pine
and fern families and the extinct ferns
of geological ages.
"This plant Is known to botanists as
the "dloon.' a genus of the 'cycadu' fam
ily," said Doctor Chamberlain. "They are
the lowest order of the seed-bmLrinir
plants, and are the nearest related to the
extinct plants of geological times.
"The plants are like big ferns or some
kinds of palms In appearance, with a
thick trunk, 6 or 8 feet high from the top
of which spring great leaves 6 feet long.
Each of the fruits contains nearly 300
sued?. The natives crush these Into a,
meal, which, mixed with flour and meat,
they use In making 'tamales.' "

Spinster Falls Deeply in Lore
With a Young Syrian
Rug Denier.
She Was Margaretta Johnson and
Says She Never Knew Lore
Until She Met Ga
New Tork, April 9. Tn the marriage of
Gabriel Abu Kalll, a Syrian, who came to
this country ten years ago, and Miss Mar
garetta Johnson of Buffalo, who In the
seventy years of her splnsterhood has ac
cumulated a fortune of more than half a
million dollars, there Is a most remark-
ablo union of youth with age.
After a courtship of several years the
marriage was solemnized on February 4
In the Church of St. Chrysostom, at Sev
enth avenue and Thirty-ninth street, by
the Reverend Thomas Henry BUI, rector
of the church. Since that time Mr. Kalll
has continued to keep his apartment in the
Hotel Marie Antoinette, while his aged
bride has cpent most of the intervening
tlma In Buffalo. She Is said to be closing
uo her affairs there, with the purpose of
eoon coming to New York to make her
home with her husband.
It was while the young Svrian was sell
ing Orontal Jewelry in Buffalo that Miss
Junnsson met him. She soon became Inter
ested In his personality far more than in
his ware?. That was between five and six
oars ao. Although before she met Kalll
notnlng had been farther from Miss John
son's thouuhts than matrimony, she found
that she had become so attached to the
young man that her life was Incomplete
without htm.
It appears to have been about two years
ago tnat tne suDject or marriage nrst De
gan to be discussed between them. Such
of her friends as she took Into her conll
decce warned Miss Johnson against tak
ing the step and pointed to tho difference
in their ages and to the fact that while
she was wealthy the Syrian was compara
tively poor But protests of all sorts were
useless In turning her from her purpose.
Until a few days ago the marriage was
kept so close a secret that hardly anyone
was aware of it. At the Marie Antoinette,
where Mr. Kalll has been living for the
last year, there was a great surprise when
It was learned that he was no longer a
baohelor, and In Buffalo tho announce
ment of the marriage will be startling
news to a large circle of Mrs. Kalll's
"Why shouldn't I marry whom I
please?" Mrs. Kalll asked one of the .few
persons whom she has taken Into her
confidence. "I have far more money than
I need, and not a relative nearer than a
third cousin or two. to whom I am under
no sort of obligation. If I cboose to fall
In lote, even though I am almost an old
woman, that Is mv Own affair. I am abso
lutely happy for the first time In my life.
In fact. I never before knew what real
happiness was."
Mrs. Kalll has. always had enough
money so that she could live comfortably
and gratify her taste for literature and
the arts, but it is within the last few
years thai she has made the bulk of her
the handsomest colors and latest shape-

fortune. She not only Invested In Buffalo
real estate, but she had the courage to
hold her property In the face of a falling
market until finally her foresight was re
warded most handsomely. Among her
other holdings was a farm, of nearly one
hundred and fifty acres In West Seneca,
which she picked up at a bargain a few
years ago, paylngonly a few thousand
dollars for it. When the Lackawanna
Steel Company located at Buffalo her
property became much sought after and
she was able to sell a little more than
fifty acres for J156.00O. She was piid gltj
In cash and took a mortgage for 175.000
for the remainder of the purchass price.
This mortgage was paid recently and the
proceeds have been reinvested in Iew
York securities,
It Is said by Joshua H. Flero of No.
100 William street. Mrs. Kalll's attorney
in New Tork. that she has retained the
management of tho major part of her
fortune, although doubtless her young
husband has been assisted In bis business
Mr. KalU's chief venture at present Is a
downtown restaurant. It has been In op
eration for nbout a year now, and has
been so succensf ul that recently two other
floors of the building have been leased and
plans have been made to extend the scope
of the business.
SU1I. this business does not occupy sllof
Mr. Kalll's time. He has a brother, who
has had experience In the restaurant busi
ness, who looks alter me aeiaiis ior mm.
leaving him freo to make frequent, though
brief, visits to Atlantic City. There he Is
weil known ftt the St. Charles Hotel,
where he Is looked upon as a well-to-do
New York business man. He Is always
alone and never has been seen to asso
ciate with any of the other patrons of the
hotel. It was not known there last night
that he Is married. He had spent the last
five days there, but left last evening.
"Never have I heard of an attachment
so remarkable and at the same time so
romantic as that of Mr. Kalll and Miss
Johnson." said Mr. Flero yesterday. "I
have known Mrs. Kaiil for half a dincn
years and her husband for the last two
or three years, and I am one of the few
persons who Is In the confidence of both
of them.
"That Mrs. Kalll Is deeply in love with
her young husband Is beyond question.
She has all the enthusiasm of a school
girl, and If she were nearer the aga of
her husband it would be regarded by
every or.e as a lwautlful love story. As
It Is, I presume, there are those who will
not agree with Mrs. Kalll In her choice.
but anything of this sort Is Important
only so far as through her friends It may
affect Mrs. Kalll.
"There is no one who has either a moral
or a legal right to question her right to
marry Kalll and to do what she pleases
with her fortune. She has neither father
nor mother, brother nor sister: she never
was married and has not even nieces or
nephews. Her nearest relative. In fact, Is
a third cousin, and to none of these dis
tant relatives Is she under the slightest
obligations. They have no right to de
mand consideration, financially or other
wise, from her."

a sucking colt Is household furniture, so

The case came to the General Board
from a subport of St. Albans, Vt., where

The Collector valued the colt at $25 and
collected a duty of J30 thereon, under the
provisions of paragraph 220 of the act of

Incorrigible Youths Cannot Be
Sent There Instead of to Jail.
Washington, April 9. Secretary Moody
Intends to send a strong letter to Pollco
Magistrate Maumer of Brooklyn, protest
ing against his shunting undesirable char
acters Into the navy. Because he is
represented as having agreed to discharge
IS-year-old George Taylor, charged with
theft, on condition that hs would enlist
In the navy, the animosity of nearly
every official In the Navy Department has
been aroused. They declare that such,
tactics are unworthy of any court and
that Magistrate Maumer has attempted
to make the United States Navy a substi
tute for Jail.
Newspaper clippings sent to ths depart
ment stated that Taylor was charged with
the theft of a bag of potatoes from S.
J. Komblum, a dealer In the Wallabout
Market, and that, when hs was arraigned,
his father appeared and said:
"My son has promised to go into tha
navy If you will -discharge him on this
complaint. The complainant is willing to
withdraw the charge."
Magistrate Maumer Is quoted as teply
lnc: "I will parole you on Friday and. In
tho meantime, you make application for
an apprenticeship In the navy. If you
don't enlist, you will be sent to Jail.'
This incensed the authorities of the Bu
reau of Navigation. Commander Alexan
der Sharp, chief of the division of en
listed men In this bureau, telegraphed
to the naval authorities at the New York
yard that this boy must not be accepted.
He could not enlist as an apprentice, tut
could as a landsman. Then a. letter was
written to the Magistrate. Before It was
sent it was decided to rewrite It, make
It stronger and have Secretary Moody
sign It.
