I never fully re? cuperated, and was bothered with stom? ach and intestinal trouble, with all their disagreeable concomitant distresses. I was nervous ami physically run down, appetite was poor and 1 was always tired. I was advisr?! by a friend to try 'Tona Vita,' and did so without much faith in; its curative properties. I am glad to say thai 1 was agreeably disappointed, for it certainly worked wonders in my case. I am now a .well man, and cannot say enough in praise of 'Tona Vita." " The specialists who arc here introduc? ing "Tona Vita" say that there is nothing uncommon or remarkable about Mr. Frielson's case. "Why, we arc receiving hundreds of such testimonials from Rich? mond people who have been benefited by our preparation," said one of these spe? cialists. "The chief value of 'Tona Vita,' " continued he, "lies in the fact that it is quick to respond to the needs of a badly debilitated body. It acts like a true' specific in a remarkably short time. "A tired, dragging feeling of the body, a sluggish mind and dull memory, depres? sion of spirits, intense nervousness, pal? pitation of the heart, weak back, cold feet, I bowel trouble, constipation and hcad ,i< lies arc- among the many symptoms of a condition from which thousands here in ! Richmond suffer. This condition is more j common in the big cities, where people ' arc apt to disregard the laws of nature. "Most of the so-called kidney trouble, nearly all indigestion and fully half of the headaches in Richmond can be at? tributed solely to a nervous, debilitated condition of the body, " 'Tona Vita' will positively remove this condition?toning one's nerves, giving ? new blood and new life." Enthusiasm continues to prevail gen? erally where the new product called "Tona Vita" has been used. The great amount j ! of good which seems to have been accottt- I plished is the cause of considerable com- j ment by those who have seen its wonder ful work. Case after case of persons who ! ! were comparatively nervous wrecks and had been sufferers from stomach trouble I lor year; has been reported, and the rc . suits of "Tona Vita' arc said to have ' been astonishing in nearly every in I stance. The specialists introducing this rc , markable new tonic will meet all callers ifrom 9 A. M- to 8 P. M. at the Polk ; Miller Drug Company, Xo. S34 East Main Street.

BY LA MAIltiUISE DE FOMEXOY. MPEROK WILLIAM Is endeavor? ing to secure legislation similar to that existing in France, by which divorced women furfolt the name, and abovo all tue titles, of their former hlsbands. Tho reason for this ib that his at? tention has been called to the extra? ordinary number of marriages which have taken place of late, between pen? niless and broken nobles und women whoso wealth is derived from quee ti.mahle sources. Such marriages, popularly known as "Namenshejra then" (name marriages), aro rarely of long duration, the transaction being a purely commercial one. Some of tho most historic and Il? lustrious names, obtained In tills fash? ion, uro. bornu and pariided by women of the most unfortunate character, which certainly does not enhance tho prestige of the. German aristocracy. Tho murder not lone ago of Countess Frieda von Strachwltz, who once be? longed to the Berlin half-world, sorved to recall that she. had procured tho grand old name and title In very much the same fashion. Tho Strncbwlts family, of Stleslnn origin, dates from the end of tho twelfth century, and de? rives its tltlo from the Holy Roman Empire, which may well explain tn,;ir wrath when this extraordinarily hu milatlng union took place. According to French law, a divorced 'vornan, even when she Is the petitioner, end the innocent party, loses the right to use io.r former husband's name. In the ? ase of an American girl, who secured a divorce from her French husband and the custody of the child wn. >h. resumed her maiden name, prefixed, however, with '.Ars," instead of "Miss." One of tho favorite toplc3 of con? versation in this country of recent years is th-- question of exchange of \isi;s between the President and foreign rulers. Visits su- h as these nstltute a sort of obligation upon i'"i.. 'i monarch, after his acces? sion to the throne, and among his . omplimentary visits of this kind, he invariably includes ono to the Presi? dent of the French republic, who ro turns the courtesy lu due course. Tho Cni.-f Magistrate of tho Argen n- Hepub i . Saenz Pcna, determined to follow European cxcmple, und In i i. i recently his intention of mak ing a friendly descent upon each of his brother potentates of the Old World, lie had. In fact, completed all arrangements for the trans-Atlantic trip aboard a man-of-war. escort'-.1 by a squa-iron of cruisers, when ho ro celved official notice from the Kings ?: Spain Italy and Belgium that it would be Impossible for them to re? turn his Visit for six or seven years; while the other sovereigns, including Hie Kulser. King George and tho Czar, offered no hopes of any return visit at all. This seems to set a precedent that should go far towards deciding the question of any interchange of visits between the President of the ted State's and European rulers. Every student of modern history is aware that on the eve of the bombard? ment of Alexandria, the English Gov? ernment invited Franco to join in the attack, and in the subsequent mllltary occupatlon- of Egypt. Tliu French fleet lay at anchor with that of Great Britian off the port. M. Gambetta was warmly in favor of accepting the. invitation, foreseeing that otherwise England would have sole control of the country and of the Suez Canal. Rut Premier de Frey cl net, afraid of offending Germany, declined to do so, I the French vessels retiring before tho bombardment began. I'ntll the appoarance, however, of the last volume of ex-Premier Crispl's Memoirs the other day, thu "public" was completely Ignorant that Glad? stone, the English Prime Minister, had addresses a similar invitation to Italy. Crlspi was not then in office, but visit? ing London, and wrote and telegraphed from there to Manclni, the Italian Min? ister of Foreign Affairs, and to Pre? mier Depretls, urging complianco with Great Brtta'ns eequest. In London, the Italian Ambassador, Menabrea. In conversation with the late Lord Granvllle, Secretary of Stale for Foreign Affairs, had actually consented and had received the congratulations of the Prince of Wales for having dona so. But Marcini ubsolutely refused; chiefly. It is said, because the British Government stipulated that the army of occupation should be under the su? preme command of an English general; and when Crlspi not long afterwards met the Prince of Wales at a garden party at M&rlborough House, the Princa '? expressed to him the opinion that Italy, by refusing to Join In the oc? cupation of Egypt, hart let slip a val? uable opportunity. Both Franco and Italy bitterly regretted the pusillani? mity of their respective governments in 1SS2; but for which they would be sharing to-day in the possession of the country bathed by the be-iutltul Nile. Queen Wllhc.lmlne, who last Week paid her first state visit to Paris sine her marriage, thus returning the call made upon her by President Falllerea at Amsterdam, showed that she was proud Of her French ancestry. Among the deputations which stie received dur? ing her stay?the ono to which she accorded most attention, was that from the French town of Orange, In the Department of the Valcluse, and which consisted of Hhe Mayor, the parliamentary representatives, and some of th,.- leading .Ittzens. The former principality of Orange passed in 1530 to the House of Nas? sau, through tho marriage of Count Henry of that Ilk with Claude de Chalons, sister and heiress of the last French Prince of Orange. This Count Henry Is the direct ancestor of Queen Wllhclmine. The principality and town of Orange were surrendered to Franca in 1660; but by the treaty of Utrecht, in 1713. the empty title was conceded by Franco to the House of Nassau, now reigning in the. Nether lauds, and it Is the distinctive title of the heir apparent. Queen Wllhermlne, by the way, has I the distinction of being the only woman who has ever received the Grand Cordon of the Legion of Honor, which neither of the Emperors Na? poleon, fortunately for them, ever ven? tured to bestow upon their consorts. Lord Kitchener, as I have before re? marked In these letters, is the best .choice that the British Government could have mude to perform the task of restoring British prestige In Egypt to the high regard In which it was held in the time of Lord Cromer's sojourn there, and to obliterate all recollection of tho dismal failure of tho late Sir Eidon Gorst, as British Diplomatic Agent. As the most recently appointed mem? ber of the Diplomatic Corps, Lodr Kitchener would, under ordinary cir? cumstances, enter tho audience cham? ber of the Dplomatlc Corps, Lord of the procession of tho diplomatic agents, on the occasion of official cere? monies. But Lord Kitchener, who un dc-rr.tandr. Egypt and tho Egyptians and the Importance attached to outward signs, absolutely refuses to place him? self In such a subordinate position, hearing in mind the peculiarly power? ful role that he plavs a? England's representative in the Land of the Pyramids. On the occasion of a recent Khcdi vial reception, when the members of the diplomatic corps assembled in the antechamber, nrrnnged themselves in order 'of seniority, and marched Into tho iliron., room, Lord Kitchener did not Join thom. When they had all left the Khedlve'B presence, and re? turned to the antechamber, they found Lord Kitchener and his entire staff seated there. These Instantly rose to their feet and made their entrance into the audience chamber In such ?? manner as to give the British agent's reception by the Khedive the charac? ter of a. separate audience. There Is not likely, howovor. to bo much frlo tion between Lord Kllohenor and other members of tho diplomatic corps upon tbls question of precedence, for theso gentleman some time ago voluntarily .-Catect that thoy thoroughly under? stood the nature of the British agent's r espo nail frlU ties and duties, as com? pared with their own, and would not Instst upon tho observance of tho usual I rules regarding seniority of appoint? ment.. It |a 'the Khedive who will be most reluctnnt to recognize tho change from the times of Sir Kldon I 'Jorst. (Copyright, 1912, by tho Brentwood Company.)
