SIXTY SINK IN DESTROYER.
of French Rumor That the Darde,, Navy, Is Lost. It is reported that during the voy age of a French squadron, bound from Marseilles, the battleship Jaureguiber ry collided with the torpedo boat de stroyer Pertuysane and that 60 men were killed or injured. The maritime prefecture declines to give out any in formation in the way of confirmation or denial of the report. Later reports are to the effect that it was the torpedo boat destroyer Darde that collided with the battle ship Jaureguiberry and that the Darde was sunk. The squadron was bound from Mar seilles to Kebier, Algeria. Russian Estates Ruined. The incendiary movement among Lie peasants in revenge for the disso lution of parliament has assumed se rious proportions. Six large estates, including those of Count Vladimir Bo brinsky, president of the constitution al democratic party, and Princess Vjadbolaka were devasted by in cendiary fires. The losses were very heavy. Robbers at Tiflis. Russia, en tered the residence of Prince Charvo deze, killed the prince and plundered the house. The explosion of an infernal ma chine at Sebastopol shattered the pris on wall. Twenty political prisoners escaped. A real comradeship is the place where hearts come to know each other.

Let the trumpets blare and the bag pipes skirl! There are many causes for this. One Is, that while men may come and men may go, like Tennyson's brook, the wagon show will go on forever. Dut the main reason is to be found in the action of law-makers, grave and seri ous, at various state capitals and at Washington. The wagon show thrived like the pro verbial gTeen bay tree and was then supplanted by the railroad show. Jum bo was no longer called on to hoist the wagon out of the gully Into which it had sunk while en route across country. The boys of the vicinity no longer found their opportunity, astride rail fences lu the uncertain light of the morning, when the circus straggled Into town, and vied with each other for oppor tunity to carry liquid refreshmeut to the elephant. Railroad competition surely and by no means slowly proved too fierce. Great circuses could be moved hundreds of miles'while the old time show was laboriously creaking along muddy roads, where the King drag was a thing unknown. But there is a movement toward a revival of the wagon show. Excessive freight rates, the scarcity of rolling stock and the legislation, by states and nation, against the granting of rebates or making any concessions to clrcuäes or theatrical companies, no matter how many people and animals and para phernalia %re transported, are respon sible. The managers of circuses can no longer obtain concessions that make profitable long jumps from one city to another. The margin of profit In a I great show is necessarily close and un | certain ; heart-holding acts are hlgh i priced, competition is strong, j No less an aggregation of circus tal ! eut. with millions of dollars at stake, than Barnum & Bailey's, is conslder ! ing this matter. It is proposed to I abandon railroads for motor coaches 1 and vans, to quit the regular steel rails of the steam roads for the wagon roads over which the countryman drives to the city with his produce. In huge ino ; tor vans and cars, such as those now i used by large concerns to move freight j to depots and warehouses, it is pro posed to move the show from city to city. Smaller shows would undoubtedly follow suit. The old-style wagon show may Hourish as It did two decades ago. Many of the wagons will be propelled by machinery, cunningly contrived, and hidden away In their Interior. Dut there will he plenty of shows which, from necessity or by rea-ons of econ omy, will depend on horses, as of yore. There is no more interesting Institu tion In the world than a circus, from the lieutenant general In command to the humblest stake driver in the rear rank of the privates. The picturesque ness of a show, particularly a wagon show, does not end behind the scenes, though the bareback riders and the acrobats, the contortionists and the wild animal trainers mingle In ordi nary clothes, talk ordinary topics, such as the weather, the size of the day's attendance, the latest bit of Interna tional scandal. Outfitting a circus Is just about as small a Job as getting an army ready to go to Cuba at a day's notice, and not die of starvation or be killed because of Inexperience the first day out If anybody thinks getting an old styled wagon show ready to quit win ter quarters and take to the road Is a sinecure, let him buy two or three dozen head of horses, train an elephant, a few camels, give a monkey dally practice In looping the loop strapped In a toy automobile, show some fifty negroes how to erect a tent so that It will stay erect, manage n side show, a menagerie, two rings and a platform and hire a few cooks Into the bargain. And the hiring of the cooks Is not the slightest part of the task, by any means. Imagine hiring one to cook for 125 men and women, hungry and peev ish, three good, big meals a day, with the kitchen In a new place every day l After all, an old-styled wagon show Is no small affair. Take, say, thirty five wagons, for Instance. They hold as much circus paraphernalia as fifteen railroad cars. One Is apt to think of a wagon show as a small affair, of one ring, a dozen performers, a half dozen or so horses. That waa the wagon show of yesterday, while the railroad 7 ' show flourished, bat now that the re turn movement has begun there are wagon shows—and wagon shows. There Is a routine about the day's work that Is as well preserved as though the show were an army moving on an enemy. At 6 o'clock In the evening, two hours before the evening performance Is to begin, the cook house is dismantled, four horses are hitched to It, nnd with a rattle and bang, the cooks in their white caps and aprons vociferously shouting out some last message and the pans hanging against the side of the wagon, while the aroma of coffee and bacon greets the nostrils, the cook tent disappears down the road toward the town of the next dny's stopping. The cook tent reaches Its destination early In the night—twenty to twenty five miles is the average dally jump of a wagon show—nnd all Is put in readi ness for the serving of early brenkfast tbe next morning. At 8 o'clock the performance In the big tent begins, nnd the crowds which have stood open-mouthed before the cages In the menagerie tent rush to their seats to see the big show. Im mediately the work of demolishing the menagerie tent Is begun. The animals are fed, then the sides are put on their cages, the horses are hitched up, four to each den or cage, and across coun try, accompanied by a route finder, the menagerie, making up the first main section of the show, starts In the wake of the cookhouse. This route finder Is an Important per sonage In the circus; It Is his business to scout ahead, ascertain the best roads, and by laying laths down at the intersections and divergencies disclose the route to the wagons that follow him. The menagerie section comes up to the cook tent some time during the night and camps until morning. At 12 o'clock, as a rule, the baggage train takes up its start The big show is over, the teut has been struck, the stakes have beeu pulled, the parapher nalia has been packed in wagons, the people have gone to bed, but while they sleep, with a merry, ringing chorus of "Yo-heave-o, St. Louis, Kansas City. Omaha," and so on, with the name of the home of every roustabout sung In a long drawn out chant, the circus has been torn down and packed up ready for transixirtation. Midnight strikes In the city, and the man who saw the circus dreams of the queen In pink tights and the fairy in littering spangles, hut the wagons creak across country and the roust abouts snatch what little sleep they can as the wagons topple hack and forth and the horses pull and plunge. In the meantime, what of the span gled fairy nnd the plnk-tighted queen, to say nothing of the musicians and the men performers of the sawdust rings? They are sleeping the sleep of the just In the best hotels the town affords. That Is one reason why the average circus performers would rather travel with a wagon show than a railroad show. After the night performance of a railroad show, he or she must wend their weary way to the train, hunt for It In an Interminable tangle of tracks, and seek what repose they can In crowded bunks as the car Is switched around or pounds over tbe rails. But In the big wagon show, the perform ers go to hotels, get a good night's rest in a bed and sleep soundly until the next morning. At 5:30 o'clock the musicians and performers are routed out of bed ; at 6 o'clock they have breakfast at tbe ho tel, and a half hour later the third section of the show takes np its Jour ney, the band wagon In the lead, and busses, carrying the musicians and per formers, In the van. This third sec tion usually strikes the town of the day's performance at 9 or 10 o'clock At 12:30 comes the parade, at 2 o'clock the afternoon performance, at 8 o'clock the evening performance, at 11 o'clock bed; and so on, day after day, week after week, until the season Is ended, Such Is life In the wagon show.—St Louis Globe-Democrat BIO FEET CAUSE TROUBLE.

Incased In No. 11 shoes, the same being the property of the grouchy citizen ! As the bibulous one attempted to , , . pass the grouchy citizen he slipped and, while endeavoring to recover his equilibrium, trod heavily upon the large, expansive-looking feet. The face of the grouchy citizen assumed an ex- j nression of even ureater nain. pression or even greater pain. I 'You bright, clever, handsome young man," he said (pleasantly, of course), "are you mentally unable to proceed without causing unnecessary and use less trouble to those in your Immediate vicinity'?" "Wazzermazzer?" Inquired the Ine briated one, with a worried expression ,,, ... . „ __,, , r. Oh, nothing at all, replied the , . . , , , grouchy citizen, and he proceeded to tell the young man whnt he thought of hlin. lie went Into a technical dis cussion of his antecedents and made prophecies as tg his future, the most cheerful of which was death by hang ing. He dwelt with evident enjoyment upon his various facial peculiarities and physical defects. Suddenly the gentleman with the "package" Inter rupted him. "Shay, ol' man,' he said, "If I had a pair o' feet that sthuck ou' way yours do 1 wouldn't 'tract 'tenshlon to 'em by talkin'. Why, d'you know every pershon in the car's lookin' a' your feet? 'A's awful pair o' feet. Why, 'f i had them feet d'ye know wha' I'd do?" The grouchy citizen arose and after glaring at his persecutor for a few minutes walked out of the car and rode the rest of the way on the back plat form.

Bishop Hare, of the diocese of South ; Dakota, was sent West many years ago as a missionary bishop of the Episcopal Church. He founded the mission at the Rosebud Indian agency, and It was his custom to give to each Indian that be confirmed a silver cross of a pecu liar pattern. A few years ago a lady from New Y'ork was visiting in South Dakota, and the bishop gave her one of these crosses. Some years after that there was a general convention of the Episcopal Church held In New Y'ork City, and several Indians were sent as delegates, all wearing Bishop Hare's crosses. Arriving In New Y'ork, they were dazed, and at a loss to know how to find the building where the convention was to be held. But stoically they started out upon the street. Soon after they met a lady, whom they Immedi ately began to follow. Whenever she turned, wherever she went, they went too. The lady became much annoyed and finally thoroughly frightened to find that wherever she went a line ot red men was trailing behind her. But Investigation explained It. She wore their cross, and they, seeing It, had believed her one of their number, who would surely go to the meeting they wished to attend; so they had taken her for their guide.

CONTAGIOUS BLOOD POISON N0XIMIT TO ITS P0WERS F0REVIL Contagious Blood Poison has brought more suffering, misery and hnmfla* Hon into the world than all other diseases combined ; there is hardly any limit to its powers for evil. It is the blackest and vilest of all disorders, wrecking the lives of those unfortunate enough to contract it and often being transmitted to innocent offspring, a blighting legacy of suffering and shame. So highly contagious is the trouble that innocent persons may contract it by using the same table ware, toilet articles or clothing of one in whose blood the treacherous virus has taken root. Not only is it a powerful poison but a very deceptive one. Only those who have learned by bitter experience know by the little sore or ulcer, which usually makes its appearance first, of the suffering which is to follow. It comes in the form of ulcerated mouth and throat, unsightly copper colored spots, swollen glands in the groin, falling hair, offensive sores and ulcers on the body, and in severe cases th* finger nails firup off, the bones become diseased, the nervous system is shat tered and the sufferer becomes an object of pity to his fellow man. Especi ally is the treacherous nature of Contagious Blood Poison, shown when the infected person endeavors to combat the poison with mercury and potash. These minerals will drive away all outward symptoms of the troubles for a while, and the victim is deceived into the belief that he is cured. When, however,the treatment is left off he finds that the poison has only been driven deeper into the blood and the disease reappears, and usually in worse form because these strong minerals have not only failed to remove the virus from the blood but have weakened the entire system because of their destructive action. S. S. S. is she only real and certain cure for Contagious Blood Poi son. It is made of a combination of healing blood-purifying roots, herb* and barks, the best in Nature's great laboratory of forest and field. We offer a reward of $1.000 for proof that S. S. S. contains a particle of mineral in any form. S. S. S. goes down to the very bottom of the trouble and by cleansing the blood of every particle of the virus anq adding rich, healthful qualities to this vital fluid, forever cures this powerful disorder. 80 thoroughly does S. S. S. cleanse the circulation that no signs of the disease are / ever seen again, and offspring is protected. Write for onr special book on Contagious Blood Poison, which fully ex plains the different stages of the trouble, and outlines a complete home treat* ment for all sufferersof this trouble. No charge is made for this book, and if yon wish special medical advice abont case or any of its symptoms, oui physicians will be glad to furnish that, too, without barge, * < 1 THE SWIFT SPEtUnC CO- ATUUSTA. fid.
