.'.SI I ;. t 1 .( -1: ' V y. 3 ft r is! i ' NEW SHRUB THAT IS A REMEDY. A Sura Cure fur Kidney Diseases mid Rheumatism. It Is no doubt truo that next to con cumptlcn, more people die yearly from diseases of the kldneya than from any other cause. In some respects Kidney disease Is the most dangerous of all maladies, because It usually has made much progress before the victim Is aware of Its existence. It Is, tbere , fore, with great pleasure we commend to our readers the recent discovery Jn East India of the Kava-Kava ehrub, which has proved a most powerful remedy for diseases of the kidneys, rheumatism, or other ailments caused by uric acid In the blood. The cures wrought by this new remedy are Indeed most remarkable. Many who have suff ered from the most severe forms of the disease, have been completely cured In from twenty to forty days by the Kava-Kava shrub. In the New York Weekly World of Sept. 10th, the testi mony of Rev. W. B. Moore, D. D., of Washington, D. C, was given, describ ing his years of suffering from Kidney disease and Rheumatism, and his rapid cure by Alkavis. Rev. John II. Wat son of Sunset, Texas, a minister of the goBpel of thirty years' service, was etruck down at his post of duty by Kidney disease. After hovering be tween life and death for two months, and all his doctors having failed, he took Alkavis, and was completely re stored to health and strength and is fulfilling his duties as minister of the gospel. Mr. R. C. Wood, a prominent attorney of Lowell, Indiana, was cur ed of Rheumatism, Kidney and Blad der disease 6f ten years' standing by 'Alkavis. Mr. Wood describes himself as being In constant misery, often com pelled to rise ten times during the night on account of weakness of the v bladder. He was treated by all hla 'hpme physicians without the least benefit and finally completely cured in a few weeks by Alkavis. The testi mony is undoubted and really wonder ful. Any of our readers who are so un fortunate as to suffer from Kidney dis . orders or Rheumatism should write to the Church Kidney Cure Co., of 42? Fourth avenue, New York, who will gladly send them free by mail prepaid a Large Case of the Kava-Kava Cora pound, so that they can test its value for themselves. This generous free of fer is made to prove the wonderful cur ative powers of this new botanic dis covery.

Weird Scenes Attend the Carrying- Out of HerGrewaome Wlshr Dead Woman at One Time a Member of the Itus slan Court. tery, Atlanta, Ga., last Thursday, the curtain fell on one of the saddest life dramas ever enact ed. Just before she died at the Gra dy hospital she re directions she had quested that the given to her executor regarding her burial be carried out to the strictest letter. These directions were unusu al. She had always felt a horrible, morbid fear of being buried alive. This dread prayed on her mind continuous ly and at times almost drove her cra ry. She made her executor, Judge E. C. Kontz, promise her that he would have her heart pierced after ber death to make certain that she was dead. Dr. John G. Earnest was summoned by Judge Kontz to go to Barclay's under taking establishment and carry out this last request. Before Dr. Earnest pierced the heart he made a very care ful examination of her body for any sign of life. The body was cold and not the slightest evidences of vitality were apparent. When Dr. Earnest made sure that all life was extinct, he took the embalming instrument called a trocar and with this slender weapon pierced the heart of the dead countess as she had requested. When the del lcate little Instrument penetrated the flesh there was not the slighest quiver Ing of the fixed cold muscles. The countess was certainly dead. For moment the physician and undertakers stood around the body. Then Dr. Earnest slowly drew the trocar out of the body, bringing with it the stains of the heart's blood of the dead couu tess. The body was prepared for burial as the countess had always requested She was attired In a white satin burial gown with White stockings and shoes According to her instructions and tho customs of the royalty of Germany the body was drawn to her grave by lour miiK-wnite norses. mere was no funeral sermon. The dead woman had asked that there be none, and there was only a simple prayer by Un dertaker Barclay. For a minute he prayed earnestly and fervently that God might bless the ashes of the dead and then, without further rite or cere mony, the dirt was piled in on the coffin and the body was shut out from human sight. It was a strange burial No minister was allowed to attend and the unusual quiet of the interment caused an uncanny feeling to thrill the frames of the few attendants gathered around the grave. The shades of night were falling when the burial party reached the cem etery, and this served to make the four white horses, which drew the dead to its last resting place, look more un real ana gnostiy, ana tne scene was especially unearthly when the grew some looking coffin was lifted from the plumed hearse and lowered into the grave. Perhaps the crowd around the bier partookk of the superstition that had been a ruling spirit of the woman who was dead before them. They stood in anxious silence as the coffin was placed in th grave. No one spoke. There was not even a whisper. When a lit tie clod of dirt became loosened and fell into the grave it sounded like the report of a cannou to the strained nerves of the men, who jumped as if badly startled. When the coffin rested on the bot- K-t- J.'". i.r.''. Mm THE COUNTESS ZELDIEKA. torn of the grave, Mr. Barclay stepped out and began to pray. His voice sounded strangely solemn and his sad and simple words seemed singularly appropriate to the occasion. Mr. Bar clay prayed that the dead countess might find that peace and happiness in heaven which she had sought so long on earth. When he finished the Invo cation the men began to shovel in the earth, and in a moment the coffin was covered from view. Countess Zeldieka was born In St Petersburg In 1817 of a German ducal family, which had attached Itself to the Russian court. At the age of 16 she was married to Count Zeldieka. Czar Nicholas I furnished her dowry and gave her husband a place upon the Imperial staff. For years fortune smiled upon the couple until the death of Ihe old emperor. Zeldieka offended Czar Alexander, losing his place at court For years afterward he consorted with danger ous companions, and In 1S65, when Karakozov attempted the life of Alex T T 7 HEN the remains L of Countess Zeldle ip Jt X ka were Interred at f iT- west view ceme VIST' - . vSSvKi ander, it was deemed prudent for Counl Zeldieka to seek safety In flight. Ger many and England refused him refuge, so he Journeyed to New York, where. with his wife and the younger members of his family, he sought to live without Russian espionage. Drink finally drove him to suicide, and death de prived the countess of all her children save one, a bright, Joy, In whom her nopes were centered. In 1873 he shocked his mother by marrying a dancing girl. She refused to meet her new daughter-in-law, and bade her son quit her presence forever. The lapse of a few days, however, softened her heart and ehe sought her son. To Philadelphia, Chicago, Cin cinnati, St. Louis and across to San Francisco and bait she traveled, but all in vain. It was as if the earth had swallowed him up. The years passed on and all hope seemed gone. Weary, the old woman gave up the search, but always exclaimed: "He will seek me yet." Twelve years ago she came to Atlan ta and settled down to live until death should come and relieve her of her sufferings. She led a very secluded life and seemed wrapped up in one mysterious thought. Through all these years she still hoped to some day find her son. Her strange figure and peculiar dress always attracted great attention when she went out, which was seldom. She always wore a quaint little cap and a pretty little apron. Judge Kontz has in his possession now a few of the treasured relics of happier days that the countess kept by her side all of the time. There is a strange old German watch that once belonged to her son and a fine old brooch. The most valued of all her sacred keepsakes was the picture of her son, which she almost worshiped. ANOTHER H. H. HOLMES. Lived a Double Life Killed ance? for Insnr- As the veil is lifted the life of Jas. M. Gordy, who is in prison at George town, charged with the murder of Mrs. Lewis of New York city, is shown to be a double one. His career has been MRS. LEWIS. that of swindler, embezzler and confi dence man. In private life he has been accused of hastening the death of his wife and one of his children, and with accomplishing the ruin of a daughter of a neighbor. Gordy has about run the limit of his career, and another murder is charged against him. It Is now believed that Gordy in sured Mrs. Lewis' life, brought her there andlhen murdered her. He had insured his wife for ?8,000, and al though she died after giving birth to a child, the circumstances were suspic ious. Gordy got the money and clear ed out. He tried to insure a number of women in the neighborhood, but his reputation prevented his succeeding. A tenant of Gordy s farm, Thomas AiessicK, whose little girl gave the clew of Gordy's connection with the case to the authorities, is bound to be a valuable witness, as she found a let ter telling of Gordy's traveling with Mrs. Lewis in New York and else where. There Is a sort of romance connect ed with the meeting of Gordy and Mrs. Lewis. Messick related the story. He said that one time Gordy came home from a trip and brought with him some matrimonial papers. Several ad vertisements of "women of means" who wanted to meet men were marked. In this manner he grew acquainted with Mrs. Lewis. He said that she was worth $30,000. He also talked of an other woman he had met who had $80,- 000. What his purpose was In regard to these women is asked by many. Her Likeness Shown on the Ground. Pekln, 111., has a sensation. A year ago Friday a man named Wallace was hanged there for the murder of his sis ter. A week ago, when the warm rains fell the grass took on a green hue all over the courthouse square and over the space where the stockade had stood, except over the spot occupied by the gallows, which is barren, and presents the exact outlines of a woman's face, witn flair streaming in disarrange ment down her neck. It is said to be a splendid likeness to the murdered wo man. t-x. The Depth of Meanness. The well-to-do sons and daughters of a father who died recently In a town in Bennington county, Vt, had a quarrel as to who Should pay the funeral ex penses, as the parent had died in pov erty.

An increasingly paying enterprise for women, is that of doll's dress mak ing. There is said to be in New York demand for such work, which is light and agreeable, affording something for the semi-invalid to occupy her time and hands with, lessening her loneli ness, while adding to her little store. Yet, not every one can dress a doll, it requires taste and neatness, and some patience as well. Only the excellent will really succeed in the art Salt is universally recognized as of prime importance to farm animals and especially to milk cows. Kock salt is not as much in favor as formerly. It is a good plan to have loose salt where the animals may have daily access to it. Prof. Robertson of the Ontario Agricultural department says that salt to the amount of a quarter of a pound a day should be added to the ration of a milk cow. He says that the other conditions being equal, a cow fed this amount as salt daily will yield 14 to 17 per cent more and richer milk, than if deprived of salt; then in hot weather milk will keep sweet several hours longer if salt is a part of the daily ra tion. & SPRAINS St. AND fij it and ' m m rw m 1 m 1 i.Tj 55 a" but REASONS FOR USING x Walter baker & (Jos 1 Breakfast Cocoa.

There Is no message which brinjH more gladness to a trne woman heart than the ewect assurance that a little one is com. ing to bless her life and call hut "Mother." But in all her lovine prepara- tions for the expected little guest, a mother is liable to forget that her own health and physical condition is the most import ant provision which can possi- Diy oe mane tor the baby's happiness. If the prospective mother is weak, nerv ous and anxious, this condition is bound to react on the baby's constitution. No dain tiness of wardrobe will compensate for the loss of the natural, healthy vigor which a mother should be stow upon her baby. As early as possible dur ing gestation, the expectant mother should reinforce her bodily powers with the sustaining, health bringing influence of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.

I have used it at differ ent times for the last five yeurs, and always with the most gratifying results. But the greatest good received from the ' Favorite Prescription ' was about four months ago when my last baby was born. I was afflicted with 'chilci-bed fever!' Instead of sending after a doctor I used the ' Pre scription ' and was cured. A lady friend of mine was similarly afflicted and sent after the doctor and took his remedies and died.
