WS LIFE Untold Suffering and Constant Misery—Awful Sight From that Dreadful Complaint, Infantile Ec zema—Commenced at Top of his Head and Covered Entire Body. MOTHER PRAISES CUTICURA REMEDIES “Our baby had that dreadful com plaint, Infantile Eczema, which afflicted him for several months, commencing at the top of his head, and at last covering his whole body. His sufferings were untold and constant misery, m fact, there was nothing we would not have dome to have given him relief. The family doctor seemed to be wholly incapable of coping with the case, and after various experiments of his, which resulted in no benefit to the child, we sent to Mazon, 111., to a druggist and got a full set of the Cuticura Remedies and applied as per directions, and he began to improve immediately, and in about three or four days began to show a brighter spirit and really laughed, for the first time in a year. In about ninety days he was fully recovered, with the exception of a rough skin, which ia gradually disappearing, and eventually will be replaced by a healthy one. “Praise for the Cutioura Remedies has always been our greatest pleasure, and there is nothing too good that we could say in their favor, for they cer tainly saved our baby’s life, for he was the most awful sight that I ever beheld, Jirior to the treatment of the Cuticura lemedies.

It is known that insects are ordinarily unable to fly through a net whose meshes art' three or four times the size of their bodies. A bird would dart through such an aperture without hesitation. Several explanations have been offered for the conduct of insects in this respect. An official of the Smithsonian Institu tion not long ago made experiments, re ported to that institution, from which he concludes that the peculiar facetted struc ture of the* eyes of insects is the cause of their difficulty In traversing nets. To an insect, he thinks, a net looks like a continuous partially opaque surface, the separate lines being unnoticed, and ac cordingly, on approaching a not the insect alights before discovering that it might have continued its flight and passed on through. Scots’ National Music. From the London Globe. An enterprising reporter sends particu lars of a matrimonial dispute between King Alfonso and his bride. It appears that their majesties were on their way to Drummond Castle when an awful sound ■mote the air. "It’s a walling banshee," cried King Alfonso. "No, my dear,” con tradicted Queen Ena; "it is the sound of the railway wagons shunting." It ap pears that both their majesties were wrong. It was the skirl of the bagpipes.

M'BRIDE MAY NuT BE BROUGHT BACK Wife Will Not Appear to Prose cute Him KIDNAPING IS CHARGED Georgia Has 374 State Banks, Accord ing to State Treasurer R. E. Park. Numerous Rewards Are Offered. Atlanta, September 17.—(Special.)—Solici tor General John T. Bennett of the Bruns wick circuit, has written to Governor Terrell asking him to withdraw his re quisition upon the governor of Massa chusetts for Dr. J. T. McBride, wanted on a charge of kidnaping his two chil dren from Glynn county some time ago, and In view of all the circumstances, the governor will let the matter take this course. Mrs. McBride obtained a total divorce In Ohio and was granted the custody of her two children, 9 and 11 years old. While she was on a visit, near Brunswick, Dr. McBride employed a detective to watch her, and this detective secured the two children and turned them over to Mc Bride who took them to Massachuetts. A warrant charging kidnaping was sworn out and a requisition Issued. McBride fought the case In the Massa chusetts courts, but when Mrs. McBride appeared there accompanied, by Solicitor General, Bennett, Dr. McBride agroed to give up the children, which he did and promised to bother bis wife no more. Mrs. McBride now hoe the children and is in Washington, D. C. A few days ago when Solicitor Gen eral Bennett saw her she stated she would not return to Georgia to prosecute the case as she had the children and did not care to push it. In view of these facts Solicitor Bennett considers it would be a useless expense to bring McBride back lo Georgia for the purpose of trial, and the requisition will not be pushed. Georgia State Banks. According to a report Just completed by State Treasurer R. E. Park, there are to day In Georgia 874 state banks with sev eral applications for charters pending In the secretary of state's office. Of these only six are in Atlanta, all of the other Atlanta banks having become national. This report presents quite a contrast witli that of 1895, more than ten years ago, when there were only 112 State banks in Georgia. At that time there were eleven state banks In Atlanta, only one or two of the city's financial Institutions hav ing chatters from the general govern ment. Preparing Report. S. A. Jones of WaynesvlUe, N. C., min ing and mechanical engineer, who is pre paring a report upon the construction of a railroad from Wuynesville to Atlanta with aid from that state, has written States Treasurer R. E. Park for further information regarding the results to Geor gia from the Western and Atlantic rail road, and wants to know If the state would build the road again if the matter should come up. Knowing what is known now. there could scarcely be any doubt as to the fact, and at this very time the I proposition is being advocated with strong prospect of success, to build the state road on the sea. Mr. Jones mentions some Interesting facts which he secured from the city of Cincinnati. That city built the Cincinnati Southern railway, now leased to tlio Southern. It values that property at $35, 000,000, though it cpst less than half that sum, and receives from it $1,100,000 an nually. In view of the tentative agreement be tween the trunk lines south of the Ohio river not to invade one another's terri tory, Mr. Jones says the only way In which to secure new and competing lines | that may become trunk lines is through | state aid. but It must first be shown that | such new lines will be profitable to tha state. He has asked for all the facts In connection with the Western and At lantic for tlio purpose of using them ill his report on the proposed new line In North Carolina. Claims Reward. Chief of Police C. E. Umsted of Coates ville. Pa., has forwarded Governor Ter rell a claim for a reward of $100 for the arrest there of Henry Harris, a negro, who was recently convicted in Liberty county of the murder of R. A. Curtis, and sentenced to life imprisonment. Through a curious feature of the law, this reward, though once offered, cannot now be paid. The murder was committed by Henry Harris and other negroes in Liberty coun ty on August IB. 1900. The reward of $100 for Harris’ arrest was offered by Gover nor Candler. When Governor Terrell came into office in 1902, in accodance with law, he revoked outstanding rewards offered by the former governor, and in this case no new reward was offered. The arrest was made in February last, and the trial and conviction of Harris took place this month. Under the law, therefore, Umsted cannot collect the reward. Governor Terrell today offered a num ber of rewards for criminals, known and unknown. The governor offered a reward of $200 for the arrest of the unknown parties who 'have been committing incendiaries In the town of DeSoto, in Sumter county. City officials of DeSoto have offered rewards of $250 for the criminals, and this makes the total $430. On September 4 the entire business portion of the town was de stroyed by fire, and on September 11 the marshal's house was burned. All of the fires are known to have been Incendiary, but the culprits hawe so far escaped dc | tectlon. I The governor also offered a reward to I day of $200 for the arrest of the unknown | person who assassinated Amos Moody, a Fulton county truck farmer, about three I weeks ago. Anotner reward onereu i» I arrest of the unknown person who on j September 5 assassinated J. A. Johnson, ! a well-known and highly respected white citizen of Colquit county, while he was eating supper in his own home. A reward of $150 was offered today for the arrest of the unknown person who on April 20 last set fire to and burned the home of Henry Lowman, an inoffensive end industrious negro, of Crawford coun ty. Lowman and 'his wife were sleeping in the house at the time but escaped. A reward of $100 is offered for the ar rest of John Perry, a negro, who is want ed in Laurens county for the murder of his wife, Josephine Perry, on August 25 last. Writing a Book. John C. Reed, a well-known lawyer of Atlanta, is engaged in writing a book on the Kuklux Klan, in which It Is stated will appear many interesting incidents of the history of that famous organiza tion in Georgia. Mr. Reed, It is stated, 's writing largely from experience. The John B. Gordon Monument asso ciation will 'hold a meeting Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 o’clock in Governor Ter rell’s office for the purpose of taking ac tive steps to push to completion the work of erecting an equestrian statue of Gen eral Gordon on the capitol grounds. The legislature recently appropriated $15,000 to wards this work. Dollar Diner for Bryan. The 400 tickets provided for the dollar banquet which will be given William Jen E. H.

Harrlman.and his associates, it is said in quarters usually well informed, have acquired control of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad company, and propose using it with probably the Chicago and Alton as the connecting link In form ing with the Union Pacific a through line from ocean to ocean. Mr. Harriman and James Stillman have for some time been directors of the Balti more and Ohio, and presumably with other members of the Union Pacific party, have been extensive holders of Its stock. It is now said that the *10,000.000 In round numbers of the Baltimore and Ohio stock recently sold by the Pensylvania Rail road company to Kuhn, Loeb & Co., have been disposed of by the banking house to the Union Pacific interests. L ABORT federation IS NOW IN SESSION Secretary Morrison’s Report Shows Good Increase In Unions and Membership. Washington, September 17.—The regular quarterly meeting of the executive coun cil of the American Federation of La bor began today. The financial report for the eleven months of the federation’s fis cal year showed the receipts to be $192, 890, the balance on hand October 1, 1905, $114,265, making a total of $307,156.

President Gompera reported on the ques tion of a universal label for all of the international organizations or for the uso of the seal of the American Federation of Labor as a universal design and part of the various union labels issued by the affiliated organizations. A number of or ganizations were reported favorably dis posed. and a large number opposed to the surrender of their right to issue their own label without any other design. The re port will be submitted to the federation convention at Minneapolis in November. Hold Primaries Today. New York, September 17.—Primaries will be held In 86 of 115 assembly dis tricts of the state tomorrow. This in cludes New York county, Kings; Queens and Richmond. No primary contest In New York city In years has aroused greater Interest, for upon the Issue is expected to depend not only the control of the republican and dem ocratic organizations in New York and Brooklyn, but probably the control of the republican and democratic state conventions to be held, respectively, at Saratoga and Buffalo on September 25. nlngs Bryan at the Piedmont hqtel Thurs day night, September 20, on the occasion of his visit here, have practically all been disposed of. One man took 100 of them, two others, the Georgia Railway and Electric company and Walter P. Andrews, took twenty-five each, while five others took ten each. The remaining 100 were dis posed of by the single ticket. It is said the 100 tickets mentioned above will be distributed among friends of Hon.

Charles I* Bonney, president of the "Half Million Club" of Jacksonville, Fla., has written Secretary W. O. Cooper of the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce deploring the fact that while Atlanta has risen to the position of sixth in the list of impor tant southern cities, Jacksonville has dropped from seventeenth to eighteenth place. He says they want some of the Atlanta spirit down there, and has sug gested that Jacksonville be taken Into Georgia by an extension of the line of Charlton county. Secretary Cooper replied that he would take the matter up at once, as Georgia would be glad to have so Im portant and progressive an addition as tile Florida metropolis. Paint Which Lasts Painters, and all others who understand paint, know that white lead and linseed oil make the best paint. Good, lasting paint cannot be had if either pig ment or oil is adulterated. Many of the so-called white leads sold nowa days have barytes, rock dust, silica, gypsum, etc., in them, and little real white lead. Linseed oil is also fre quently adulterated. Such mixtures are dear at any price. Collier Pure White Lead | / (Made by the Old Dutch Process) is absolutely pure, and makes lasting paint.

Denver, September 17.—Phillip B. Stew art, recently nominated for governor of Colorado on the republican ticket, tonight sent a letter to the republican state chair man declining the nomination.

When the nomination was made, Stewart, was not present, being ill at his 'home.

TheWinning Stroke If more than ordinary skill in playing brings the honors of the game to the winning player, so exceptional merit in a remedy ensures the commendation of the well informed, and as a rea sonable amount of outdoor life and recreation is conducive to the health and strength, so does a perfect laxative tend to one's improvement in cases of constipation, biliousness, headaches etc. It is all important, however, in selecting a laxative, to choose one of known quality and excellence, like the ev ir pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co., a laxative which sweetens and cleanses the system effectually, when a laxative is needed, without any unpleasant after effects, as it acts naturally and gently on the internal organs, simply assisting nature when nature needs assistance, without griping, irritating or debilitating the internal organs in any way, as it contains nothing of an objectionable or injurious nature. As the plants which are combined with the figs in the manufacture of Syrup of Figs are known to physicians to act most beneficially upon the system, the remedy has met with their general approval as a family laxative, a fact well worth considering in making purchases. It is because of the fact that SYRUP OF FIGS is a remedy of known quality and excellence, and approved by physicians that has led to its use by so many millions of well informed people, who would not use any remedy of uncertain quality or inferior reputation. Every family should have a bottle of the genuine on hand at all times, to use when a laxative remedy is required. Please to remember that the genuine Syrup of Figs is for sale in bottles of one size Ionly, by all reputable druggists, and that full name of the ^ company—California Fig Syrup Co., is plainly printed on A the front of every package. Regular price, 50c per bottle. I reflrrriCTy. -/_ BIGGEST TELESCOPE. In the World to be Mounted In Harvard Observatory. From the Boston Herald. The blggeet telescope in the world Is the Common telescope, five full feet In diam eter and twenty inches wider than the Yerkes. It was constructed about ten years ago by Dr. A. A. Common, a well known astronomer of England, who wanted it for research work that he was doing. He died soon afterward, and his fine telescope became idle. Two years ago It was purchased by the Harvard Col lege observatory, which proceeded at once to mount It on the observatory grounds ut Cambridge. The first sod was turned September 28, 1904. Since then the work has gone on steadily, hut it has been necessarily rath er slow, for mounting a great telescope is not like building a house. Moreover, this telescope fias a very unusual kind of mounting. Most large telescopes are sup ported by a pedestal or foundation pier of cast Iron, cement or masonry firmly built j upon tho ground, hut this telescope Is j held In position by 1 big hollow syllnder that floats in a tank of water. In the first place a deep excavation was ! made on the spot where tho telescope i was to stand, and a tank was constructed j with thick walls of solid concrete 15 feet deep at the farther end and 21 feet long, » the bottom of which slopes upward from the deep end at an angle of about 45 de grees to t'he surface of the ground. In this tank the water tight steel float or cylinder, which Is 18 feet long and 7 feet 8 Inches in diameter, Is ballasted at the same angle as the bottom of the tank, the buoyancy of the water support ing its weight, and delicate pivots at each end serving to steady it In position. Above this, and securely fastened to It by a strong Iron fork and holts Is the great tube of lhe telescope. The tube Is not circular, as one might suppose, hut rectangular. Nor has It solid walls. The upper part of the tube for a distance of about fifteen feet is a kind of skeleton, constructed on angle Iron, which Is now covered with thick canvas, and has an Inside measurement six feet square. The lower end, which supports the mirror and is bolted to the Iron fork just mentioned, Is a hollow cube with sides six feet In length that are made of steel plate. 'me wnoie structure weigns a numner of thousands of pounds, but It Is so deli cately poised that It appears to have no weight at all. So strong are the bolts and pivots that it can be moved In any direction, up. down, or sideways, with out the slightest Jar or slip. The tele scopes In most observatories are handled by clockwork that runs by a system of weights, but the Common telescope Is to be controlled entirely by electricity. People are apt to think of an astron omer as perched on a ladderlike flight of steps and shivering In a big. lonely dome on an Icy winter night, yet gazing up eagerly through a ponderous tube that will hardly move In response to his number fingers. Here, while sitting com fortably In a warm room, by merely look ing down an ordinary appearing liftle tube, the observer can see all the won ders of the sky pass mirrored before him, while the recorder, without a single effort beyond the touch of a button or the mov ing of a switch, turns the great instru ment outside here or there, to reach any | part of the starry sphere from horizon i to horizon as the observer directs. It may sound raltyer odd to speak of 1 looking down a tube at a star. This re quires some explanation. There are two kinds of telescopes, reflecting and re fracting. The reflecting telescope has a mirror of glass covered with a thin coat of solver, and shows the star In the same way us the mirror over your dressing table, shows your image and the room behind you, by throwing buck the light that falls upon it. The ref*acting tele scope has a lens made of two or more discs of clear glass that are set In the tube at the upper end, and through them the light rays from the star pass down the tube to the eye of the ob server Just as though he were looking through a big- magnifying glass. The Common telescope Is a reflector, and Its great mirror, five feet in diam eter. Is placed at the lower end of the tube, so that the light from any star that Is to be examined reaches 11 by pass ing down the length of the tube. Then other smaller mirrors placed ulong the tube above reflect this light back again up the tube to the “eyepiece,” or small er tube which passes through the wall of the observing room to the observer. The end of this eyepiece through which the observer looks Is closed by a power ful magnifying lens, so that the image of the star, which appears as a very small point on the mlVror, Is a little en larged. This great telescope is Intended chiefly for photometric work, that is, measuring the light of the stars. Professor Edward C. Pickering, who Is the director of Har vard college observatory, has spent a good many years in this work, and he in tends to devote the rest of his life to It. Of course, he has a great many other duties, but tlils photometric work Is his personal work, and he spends three or four hours each clean night at it.

These Include only the brighter stars, for the observatory has never before owned a large telescope that could be used In this work, so that Professor Pickering has had to use small Instruments. Now, however, he will be able to measure less bright ones, for the Common telescope Is so large that It will show much fainter stars than can be seen by any other telescope. There Is one Interesting fact al>out the Common telescope, and that Is that It has been mounted In the open air, without any dome or "shelter" over it to protect It from storms. This Is an experiment, to be sure, but It Is expected that It will he a very successful one. The telescope Is not yet quite ready to be put Into commission, as observatory people say, but before next autumn conies it will probably be In use. Strange English Rentals. From the New Orleans Times-Democrat. Strange rents were being discussed— how this church paid one lily annually and that convent paid two doves. A real estate man said: "We have some remarkable rentals, but England beats us her**, for she is the old er country, and she delights in maintain ing the. quaint customs of the past. "The splendid manor of Fernbam Roy al Is held by the service of putting the glove on the king's right hand and by supporting the ami that holds the scepter on coronation day. There is no other pay ment. “The rental of the manor of Aylesbury Is three cels In winter nnd three geese In summer, besides a litter of straw for the king’s bedchamber thrice.a year, if he come that way so often. “The manor of Addington’s rental is a pair of gilt spurs, a pair of tongs, a snowball on midsummer day and a rose at Christmas. “The rental of the manor of Copeland is the holding of the king’s head, If needful, ns often as he crosses the sea between Dover and Whltaand.” The Lobster an Idiot. From the Boston Transcript. The best naturalists remain timorous enough and hesitate to dogmatise. Taks the case of the lobster. Poke him here, he docs this; poke him there, he does that; poke a thousand of them in the same way and they do the same things. Shall we, therefore, conclude that the lobster lacks mentality, that he’s a mere machine; that he doesn’t even know he’s a lobster? By no means. All we can affirm wUh scientific justice is that apparently—and only appar ently—he’s an Idiot. The way to know tog sure—is to be a lobster!
