A Nervous Woman
Will often feel compelled to stop the
clock whose ticking seems unbearable to
her. In such a nervous condition the
woman needs a building up of the entire
system. It is useless to attempt the cure
of the nerves
while the cause
of the nervous?
ness remains un
cured. A very
in women is a
tion of the delicate
Dr. Pierce ? Favor?
ite Prescription cures
womanly diseases and
the nervousness which
they cause. Itchanges
irregularity to regtllar
ity, dries the drains
which weaken women,
heals inflammation and ulc?ration and
cures female weakness. It is a perfect
tonic and nervine, tranquilizing the
nerves, promoting the appetite and in?
ducing refreshing sleep.
"I was ?o nervous I had to hare ?ome one by
my side all the time, even in the daytime, and I
could hardly cat anything," writes Mrs. Selma
Krickion. of 49e Rice street. *t. Pant, Minn. "I

SHOT WIFK IX CHURCH.
During the early morning communion
service at the German Lutheran Church
at Lacrosse, Win., yesterday, Herman
Rossow, a painter, entered the church
behind his wife and her mother, shot
her twice and then turned the weapon
upon himself, inflicting a wound which
will likely prove fatal. Rossow was
married to Miss Weiss three years ago
at the home of her widowed mother.
She was a factory girl. Rossow was em?
ployed by the Lacrosse Carriage Com?
pany. Because the husband became a
drunkard and refused to provide for his
young wife, she left him, returning to
live with her mother. Several times
Rossow sent notes threatening to kill
her if she did not return to hin, but the
girl, though terrorized, refused to again
have anything to do with him. Yester?
day morning Rossow took a ]>osition in
a livery st?hle near by, opposite the
church. He had failed to accomplish In
premeditated purpose in any other man?
ner. When his wife appeared and enter?
ed thechurch Rossow followed, walking
behind her down the aisle to the middle
of the edifice. Stepping up behind her he
muttered something in her ear, and at
she turned fired into her breast.
The woman reeled, then staggered away,
and as she fell to the door he fired again
the second bullet entering her back be?
tween the shoulders. A panic ensued
and men, women and children rushed
screaming from the scene. Rossow fled
to the vestibule of the church, and plac?
ing the weapon against his breast fired.
The bullet took effect, but a seond fail?
ed and struck the wall behind him. Run?
ning from the church he was captured a
half block away by E. H. Deer, a former
policeman,and easily submitted to arrest.
As he was being taken to the police head?
quarters he fell from the loss of blood
and was driven to a hospital. He is be?
lieved tobe dying. Physicians say he can?
not live, the bullet having reached a vi?
tal organ. The woman is dying.
A fatal shooting affray occurred near
the foot of Tanner's Bridge, in Marks?
rille district, Page county, 11 miles
south of Lnray, about twilight Satunl y,
in which Mrs. Annie L. Alger, ?rift of
Ashby Alger, of that section, was in?
stantly killed, having been shot by
Philip Alger, a brother of Ashby Alger.
The Algers, together with several frit ??-,
had left Marksville early in the evening
for their home, several miles distant,
some of the party being on Inrsebacli,
while others were walking. The testi?
mony of Ashby Alger at the inquest, held
at Marksville yesterday evening before
the coroner, Dr. W. L. Hudson, of
1.may, was that the members oi the
party bad proceeded^ peaceably on their
journey homeward until they reacio <l
the foot of Tanner's Bridge, when Philip
Alger, who was in advance of the olii?tra,
wheeled around in the road and fired a
shot in the direction of those behind, deV
mandiug, with an oath, that they come
no farther. Mrs. Alger was in the
| front and received the ball in the
I abdomen, producing instant death.
The dead woman's husband immediately
left the scene o? the tragedy, starting in
the direction of Marksville for an officer,
hut soon met several friends, and with
them returned to where his wit?
lying in the road, her head being sup?
ported by Mrs. John W. Alger, mother
of the Algers. When he reached the
spot ho says that Philip Alger was stand?
ing over the dead body of his wife, wav?
ing bis pistol and remarking, "? her,
let her go!" At this juncture Ashby
Alger struck Philip with a rock, and
the two men in the struggle for the pos?
session of the pistol fell almost across
the body of the dead woman. In the
fall the revolver fell out of Phillip'?
hand and was seized by Ashby. Deputy
Sheriff F. S. Kiblcr placed Algerunder
arrest. The dead woman was about 10
years of age. The man who did the
shooting is apparently about 24 years of
An Escapbi) Lion Ckeates a Panic.
Thousands of visitors to Coney Island
were thrown into a panic on Saturila,
by the escape from an amusement park
of a lion, which ran through the crowded
streets pursued by police and trainers
until he was driven into a corner and
teca red. The lion on being brought ont
of his cage to go through a ring perform?
ance with an elephant, suddenly be?
came enraged and leaping on the ele?
phant's back, buried his teeth and ? laws
in the bigbrute'ssboukler. Trumpeting
loudly the elephant rushed around the
.??ng and finally succeeded in gripping
tie lion with his trunk, tore him from
his hold and buried him into a lagoon
nearby. By this time the terrified aud?
ience had fled and communicated the
panic to the crowds in the street. The
lion, half-drowned, scrambled out of the
lagoon and leaped through a window
into a bar-room and thence into the
street When recaptured the lion ap?
peared to be weary, and was probably
more frightened than any of his pur?
Laws Amended.? Governor Monta?
gue on Saturday mailed copies of the
recent amendments passed by Con.
to the naturalization laws of the United
States to each judge in the Suite. The
following extract from the Governor's

"In order to render a court judgment of
naturalization valid the court record
must show that the person naturalized is
not opposed to all t?rganized government
nor affiliated with any organization so
opposed; that he does not advocate the
unlawful assaulting or killing of officers
of government, and has not violated any
of the provisions s, the said act to regu?
late tLe emigratjun 0f auenrt> ftUd has

on the subject of naturalization. The
act requires, also, that every certificate
