BIG WEEK'S WORK BEGUN
Continued From First Page.
legatee dies before the testator, and
under the present law the legacy is void.
A bill to be Introduced this week makes
the heirs of the deceased legatee the
rightful persons to receive the legacy It
will change a system which has been in
vogue for several hundred years. The
absurdity of the bill is manifest. A
man who makes his will in favor of an
other knowB in ninty-nine cases out of a
hundred, whether his legatee dies before he
dies. If he does not want the heirs of
the legatee to have his property all he
has to do is to make a new will ; but if he
does want them to have it he prefers to
name them, and not have the matter
open to a fight among the heirs in the
Only On. Election Department.
The bill in relation to the municipal
election in the city of Wilmington will
be introduced to-day. It simply transfers
to the municipal election all the registra
tion election machinery of the general
election. It provides for but one election
department, that composed of Commis
sioners Dobbs, Doud aud Thomas The
old department and all old laws are re
pealed. The same election officers who
held the general election in November
will hold the municipal election. The
general election registration will stand
with one day for revision, for the addi
tion of names aud noting removals. The
day for revision will be the second Satur
day before the election.
Ignorance no Rzcnse.
The bill to abolish the voters' assist
ants is drawn and ready for introduc
tion. No one receives assistance but
those who are physically incapable of
preparing their ballotH. In such case
it »hall be the duty of the election officers
to soiect two persons of opposite politi
cal faith to help him prepare his ballot.
They shall take the same oath now pre
scribed for the voters' assistants. An
ignorant man must receive instructions
from his friends outside the polls, speci

Rodney and His Bills.
John H. Rodney, attorney for th«
Levy Court of New Castle couuty was iu

affecting the county government,and con
ferred with Senator Pyle and other mem
bers during the evening.
Members Want « Raise.
The provisions of one bill increase the
salaries of tbe five commissioners from
$000 to $1,000 each, payable quarterly.
It makes an allowance of five cents a
mile for travel in behalf of the county
and the commissioners mutt make oath
that the mileage claim is correct.
Levy Court Wants a Say.
He referred to Senator Pyle an amend
ment to the seveial electric railway
bills. It provides that before any rail
way shall traverse a public road or
cross a county bridge the company shall
have the consent of the Levy Court.
Ruliitlnf to County Finances.
Mr. R'dney will have introduced two
bills of great importance to the county

authorizes the Levy Court to borrow
$100,000 upon the credit of tbe county

"job." left by the 1st« Republican Levy
Court. The debt shall be paid off in
annual installments of $10.00).
The other bill authorizes the Levy
C'iurt to refund the Trustees of the Poor

authorized to borrow $270,000 fur
t iis benefit of the Trustees of the Poor.
The 1 iw directed the payment of $10,0( 0
a year. The state bought the insane
asylum, and for several years payments
were kept up. Six years ago they
stopped, and since then tbe cuunty has

refund it at 5 per cent.

A DANGEROUS DIET.
How Meat May Cause Disease
and Even Death.
A PHY8I0IAÎT3 WARNING.
An Abounding Revelation Based on
Facts—A Cause of SloknMn Rarely
Suspected—Rome Remarkable State
"Do you eat very much meat?"
If you are an American, in fairly good
circumstances, the chances are that you
will answer, "Yes, I like plenty of meat
three times a day." You may even eat
too much, but you will never dream that
there is any danger in it, although there
is a danger and a very great one. It was
only recently that a well-known physi
cian called attention to this fact in the
Journal of Health. This is what he says:
"The cheapness of meat and a craving
which the systems of most people seem to
have for meat, has made it common for
city people to live almost entirely off
meat in the winter months. Meat is
eaten three times a day in large quanti
ties and that, let me tell yon, is the
reason why diseases of the liver aud kid
neys are so constantly increasing. Too
much meat causes billlousness and in
digestion, and if this Is continued for
any leDgth of time it poisons the entire
system. When you find people com
plaining of loss of appetite, and sickness
at the stomach, with a dull, heavy sensa
tion in the back of the head, pain in the
right side aud under the shoulder-blade,
with fullness after eating, you may
know that their liver and kidneys are
out of order, aud that they are in for a
good spell of sickness before long. When
the liver and kidneys act properly, they
are constantly removing impurities from
the entire body, and when they get out
of order the whole system suffers."
Every one who has experienced the
painful BymptomB tnat the physician
describes, and who seeks a reliable and
swift remedy for preventing them, will
find valuable advice in the following
remarks made by well-known people,
whose words are beyond question.
Miss Alice Bowers, of Winfield, O.,
recently said in relating her experience :
"I was troubled with dyspepsia for six
years, was very nervous, could not sleep,
and my head gave me no rest, which
caused my hair to turn gray at the age
of sixteeu years. I had no appetite, my
stomach would not digest the food, and I
was afflicted with other ailments. Meat
seemed to lay heavy ou my stomach when
eaten, and hud a most unpleasant effect.
I was finally persuaded to try Warner's
Safe Cure, about which I hud heard so
much. After taking it for Borne little
time, I found that I could eat well, that
my food digested pioperly, aud all pain
symptoms disappeared. I am now
better health than ever before in i
A J. Dewey, the notary public and
well known business man of Cbnumont,
N. Y., tells the following remarkable
story: "Several years ago my doctors
told me that I had kidney disease and
gravel. At times the pain would be so
acute that I could hardly get to the
house. lu my bu-iuess I had sold
Warner's Safe Cute aud, seeing the way
It benefitted others, tried it myself.
Before finishing the firBt bottle I was
greatly relieved. I told my doctor that I
was using this remedy and be said,
'keep right on with it. as it is better
than any thing I can give you, and iu
fact, is the best thing in the world for
kiduey aud gravel troubles ' That was
once that I cheerfully took a doctor's
advice. Very soon I was all right again,
and therefore I cannot »peak too highly
of the great Safe Cure which has done
so rnnch for me."
W. H Heath of Hastings, Mich , is a
wonderful example of perfect health en
joyed in extreme old age. The secret of
it is explained in the following statement
he makes: "Ten years ago I was com
pletely prostrated with kidney disorders,
feet and limbs so swollen that I could
not get on my clothes without assistance.
Tbe best doctors told me I had Bright's
Disease and that I was so far gone that 1
could not live, I went East to New York
state to make a last visit to my friends,
among whom was the late Mr. Cunning
ham, carriage maker, of Rochester, N
Y. Ho recommended Warner's Safe
Cure so strongly that I commenced to
use it at ouce, aud kept at it un'il I
gradually grew better, all traces of the
disease disappeared aud I was dually
cured. I am 72 years old, smart as a
cricket, and attending to my business
daily. I can thank Warner's Safe Cure
for not being a subject for the under
The many painful effects of imperfect
digestion, including stomach troubles
aud diseases of tho liver and kidneys,
are all thoroughly and speedily relieved
by the help of the great Safe Cure above
referred to. The fact that it has re
stored to health thousands of men and
women who were unable to fiud relief in
any other way sufficiently proves that it
can be implicitly relied upon by all who
seek its powerful aid.
