Varicocele TWISTED, SWOLLEN, PAINFUL, WEAKENING IN ITS EFFECTS UPON the vital powers, the direct cause of thousands of cases of general nervous ex haustion, debility and decay. This is Varicocele in the veins of the vital parts. It is perhaps the most dangerous of the many results of early indiscretions. It drains the vital powers in that slow, treacherous manner which leaves no signs of it terrible effect until the awful work is done—until the whole nerve force, the foundation of mental, physical and vital strength is undermined and manhood destroyed. Doctors have tried every known means in their attempts to cure it. and have usually given it up with ths advice that it will not be a serious matter. But this Is only their way of excusing themselves for their helplessness. It is a serious matter, as has been proven by the thousands of physical wrecks it has caused. But it can be cured by DR.

W NEED OF SOAP Not the Cause of Luetgert's Conduct EVIDENCE IN IMPEACHMENT TEARS DEFENDANT'S CASE TO TATTERS The Woman Taken for the Corpus Delicti to Be Called to the Stand Associated Press Special Wire. CHICAGO, Oct. 6.—The testimony In '.he Luetgart trial was more Interesting to the general public than it has been at any time for the past two weeks. The dry technical tvi&nce of ihe experts gave way to Impeachment evidence of fered by the state against the witnesses for tbe defense who had stated on the standi that Mrs. Luetgert had been seen in the vicinity of Kenosha, Wis., within a few days after the murder ls said to have been committed. Several of those who claimed to have seen the woman around Kenosha fared badly at the bands of their neighbors, and Witness Schnley. tb? principal witness for the defense on the Kenosha story, had his character torn into shreds. One of his neighbors who testified against him said he did not know what was meant by Scholey's "veracity," but made himself clear ln the next breath by adding: "I do know, though, that Seholey is no good." Evidence was Introduced to show that Luetgert had not put any grease or chipped bone into his vats for making soap on the night of May 1. as his busi ness partner, William Charles, had testified, because it had all been carted away on the morning before. It was also shown that Luetgert had no occa sion to make any soap, for when the factory was seized by a deputy sheriff several days after the murder it said to have been committed, a great many bar rels of soap belonging to him werefound in the basement of the factory. Emma Schimpke was recalled to the Witness stand ar.d an effort was made to show by her that all the impeaching evi dence that had been produced by the defense on her testimony was the result of a misunderstanding of her story. Oni direct examination she had stated that she saw Luetgert and his wife going to ward the sausage factory at 10:30 oclock the night of May 1. She was asked upon cross-examination if she had not testi fied to seeing Luetgert and his wife on May 23. The witness said she had not. She had said, however, that on the night of May 23 she met Harry Fielder ar.d other boys at about the same point sho met them on the night of May 1, upon which date she had seen Luetgert and bis wife. Attorney Phelan showeTed questions upon the witness relative to her meet ing boys at night. Her face became scarlet and she became angry and snapped back her replies in: a manner that amused Judge Tuthill, while the spectators smiled broadly. Tomorrow witnesses from Kenosha, Wis., will be called to the stand to refute the stories of the persons who stated positively that they saw Mrs. Luetgert in the Wisconsin town on May 3, 4 and 5. lt is expected that these witnesses will be confronted with the woman they mistook for Mrs. Luetgert.
