APPEALS TO THE
POLICY HOLDERS MORTON WANTS NO ADVERSE LEGISLATION Circular Letter It Being Sent Out, Urging Them to See That No Unreasonable Laws Are Made By Associated Pr«M. NEW YORK, Dee. 17.— An appeal to the pollcyholdcrs In all the states of the Union to lend their assistance In preventing adverse legislation la made by President Paul Morton of the Equit able Life Assurance society In a cir cular letter which Is being sent to the pollcyholders. President Morton says that the Insurance business Is certain to be the subject of great consideration by legislatures soon to convene as a re sult of what has been printed and snld about Insurance during the last six months 1 . "But you cannot give men character nor make them honest by preamble, resolution or enactment," says the letter. "What the life Insurance business needs above everything Is honesty and good business administration. There can be no objection to proper legisla tion safeguarding the business, but It should be sound and sane. The society depends upon its poltcyholders to see that there Is no unreasonable legisla tion enacted. It may from time to time call their attention to measures calcu lated to do them harm, but under no circumstances •will It be party to any corrupt methods In preventing 'strike' legislation. We aim to meet the just requirements of every state and gov ernment and rely upon our policy holders to see that no injustice Is done them. "Any unfair Insurance law or unfair inauraifce tax measure enacted by your state legislature Injures you and re duces the dividend earnings of your policy. Your dividends would be nearly 10 per cent larger If It were not for the state taxes and license fees that the society Is obliged to pay." Mr. Morton expresses the opinion that the Equitable has no right to con tribute to political funds and Informs the pollcyholders that no such con tributions will be made by the society In the future. He says in future the society's reserve will be invested in real estate mort gages or the securities of other well established corporations serving those sections of the country which produce the premiums. Ho assures the policyholders that the financial condition of the society as disclosed by a most careful examina tion by competent and disinterested ac countants is excelled and that many economies already in practice and others yet to be made surety will en hance its conditions. He urges all policyholders to continue the payment of their premiums and says the inves tigation of the society has convinced him that there Is no cheaper way than this for them to have sound life In surance. ; -. . :■;> <!•. « EFFRONTERY OF POLICE ASTOUNDS TEXAS MAN HORROR STRICKEN AT SEIZURE OF LIQUOR Officers Give Offense to Finer Sensl. blllties of Drug Store Man From the Lone Star State, Where "Blind Pigs" Are Not Tabooed ■ \V. P. Covilland discovered yesterday that to conduct a drug store In Texas is one thing and to conduct one in I-os Angeles is entirely a different proposi tion. ' ,'-.' " In Dallaß, where Covilland had been the proprietor of an apothecary shop, bars In the back rooms of drug stores help considerably toward paying the rent. The police had been watching the place, Thirty-eighth and Maple avenue, since its opening and yesterday they obtained what they claim is positive proof that Covilland was selling liquor without a license. The drug store was raided ■with the result that much con traband liquor was found. .Covilland was horror stricken at the calm manner with which tho officers confiscated his stock of Joy giver. The druggist said, "What in thunder is a drug store for any way? If I want to sell a little eood whisky in the back room of my store can't 1? And if not, why not? You say there is an ordinance agaiust it. Well, am I sup posed to know all the fool ordinance* that a Jay town has, huh? I am going back to Texas, that la tho only place for a gentleman, any way. Tho idea of put ting me In Jail Just because I supplied my friends with ono of the necessities of life. Outrageous! I shall appeal to the governor of this state." A large quantity of whisky and wine was confiscated by tho arresting offi cers. Covilland will be tried today on the charge of conducting a blind pig.

WOODMEN ATTEND OPENING OF GOLDEN RULE GROCERY Head Consul Drives Nails in Last Board of Building Hundreds of Friends of AY. F. Slater Gather at Home of Blind Man to Finish Generous VYork. Eager Customers Make Inroads on Stock "This In the grandest monument th«t the Woodmen of the World have ever erected. They have built temples of stone, marble and granite, but the fra ternity that has entered into the build ing of this store and home for an af flicted brother Is a monument that will last as long as time endures." Such were the remarks of T. I. Boak head eounnei of the Woodmen, just be fore he nailed on the board yesterday afternoon that completed the construc tion of the grocery store and home which the Fremont camp of the W. O. W. have built at 1727 East Thirty-eighth street with the aid of the other camps and friends of W. F. Slater, a member who has become totally blind and un able to make a living for his wife and daughter by working at his former trnde. The occasion was the dedication of the Oolden Rule grocery, suitably named by Mr. Slater. A number of the high officials of the Woodmen and many friends of the family of the blind man were present. A large crowd thronged the building from early In the morning until cloning time at night and the business that was done had the ap pearance of being of a wholesale rather than of a retail nature, so numerous and In such large quantities were the purchases made. Mr. Slater in Usual Good Humor ' Mrs. Plater and daughter Taullne were behind the counters waiting upon the. customers, but trade was so lively that it required the services of two men In addition who volunteered to do the work as salesmen. Mr. Slater's father and mother, Judge and Mrs. C. G. Slater, were also in attendance help- Ing to put up groceries or to attend to the wants of the customers. Mr. Slater stood at the entrance of the building and greeted his friends ap they arrived. He was In his usual good spirits and joked about his being a cash register without a bell upon It I. I. Boak, head counsel, was the first speaker of the afternoon and compli mented the Fremont camp upon the way In which they have responded in aiding a brother who has not been able to help himself. He told of his desire to be present at the raising of the frame and of his regret that he had not even had the chance to at least drive one nail in erecting what he termed the grandest monument that the Woodmen have ever built. He wap afterwards informed that one board had been left off and proceeded with alacrity to nail It on. That he was de lighted to do even this much could b€ seen by the look of pleasure that came to his faco as he fitted it truly to its place. Congratulates Blind Man "W. O. Morton of camp No. 402 told his brother Woodmen that they had done a great deed and that it was his belief that their work was looked upon with pleasure by their Father In Heaven. He said that by opening their hearts and going to -work with their hands they had made a monument that is greater and will live longer after they have died than any fortune which they might amass. Peter Gilroy, state organizer, spoke words of comfort to Mr. Slater, telling him that he might rejoice in his af fliction, for he has made thousands of friends, which is the greatest heritage that any man can leave upon this earth when he departs. W. B. Ames of I^a Fiesta camp No. 63 spoke a few words of congratula tion to his brother Wdodmen for the way they have carried out their work and upon the good spirit that has pre vailed. Numerous calls were heard for a speech from A. F. Borden of Fremont camp No. 466. He responded by sug- FRIENDLESS OLD WOMAN IN DIRE DISTRESS SHIPPED TO CALIFORNIA TO DIE ALONE Pitiful Case Discovered at the County Hospital — Unfortunate Wants to See Beloved Children in Far Away Canadian Town , "Is there a generous, kind-hearted person in this city who will help a broken-hearted old Scotch woman back to her Canadian home?" Is the question county hospital authorities are asking. "If there is any such let him go quickly to the county hospital and ask for Mrs. Mary Parks." The woman needs a friend if ever did anyone In that refuge of the sick and friendless. Sixty-two years old, widowed, child- Uss, friendless and penniless: weakened by a long sickness and unaccustomed to buffeting with the world, Mrs. Parks was shipped from her far-away home fo come here, where sho has not a friend and every face Is strange. The poor old woman staggered from the train at the Salt Lake station Saturday. Her extreme need was at once apparent to the agent, to whom she appealed, and eho was hurried in an ambulance to the county hospital. Last night ehe sat In the woman's ward and told her pathetic story, while tears her brave spirit would not let fall glistened in her frightened eyes. "For God's sake don't die on our hands," begged her sister with whom she lived In Winnipeg, when she saw Mrs. Parks was falling rapidly. "Go away to California; someone will take care of you there, and you will get better." So she was bundled off, with out an extra penny above her railroad fare. "Oh, but I want to go back," she wailed. "I want to Bee the children again. I've nobody here, and every face is strange. Help me to get back and Ood will bless you." No words of condemnation for the unfeeling sister that thrust her out; only a tender longing for the three little nieces that were the one solace of her lonely old heart. "If I could only get to my grand daughter up In Victoria," she said hopefully, "I'd be taken care of there I . know. I pray God every night to send me an angel to help me." Doctors and nurses at the county hospital are wondering If, there is not uomeone to givs the gentle .old. soul who. has no on«,of her own blood tv appeal to a little lomfuit. LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 18, 1905. Keating- that Heart Counsel Boak be Klven ft chance to hnve ft hand In erect- Ing thP building and led the way to th» place vhero the one board had been unnalled. Tho store on It now stands Is a model ono and i« stocked with a full line of Rrocerlfs or rather. It was before the customers began to arrive yesterday morning. So much goods wan carried away that It will hfi necessary for Mr. Sinter to make many purchases today to nil In his stock. Mr. Boak Buy* Havana* The clgwr case was practically ralli ed nnd nearly every man carried home a box under his arm. Mr. Hoak, de siring to Rive Borne aid, purchased n large number of migrant Havanas and had them distributed among the crowd who had Rathered. Th<> living roomn at the rrar are flt tfd hi* ns nice m tho averaße Los Angelos home and nre comfortable In every way. All of the necessary furni ture which Is of good quality has been placed In them. A horse and wagon will be purchased In the near future for the purpose of delivering the goodn fmm the store. Today a committee of men will go lo the premises to fill in the ditch which In in front of the store and this will complete the work of making a model place for a combined Rtiire hikl home. "Truly a noble work." "None but men wllh big hearts could have ac complished It." ■ "It certainly speaks In the loudest tones for the credit of the. order." These are some of the expressions that were heard yesterday made by those who were not Woodmen but who were commenting upon the work. It In In reality a great work, but this sort of thing has characterized the Fremont camp as well as the whole order ever since its organiza tion. Recalls Skin Grafting Heroism It will be remembered that It was this fraternal order that allowed skin to be taken from their bodies to be grafted onto the body of George N. Shlssler, who was severely scalded about two years ngo. A carpenter bared his brawny arm during the active construction of the building showing a place were the skin had b"?cn removed. "How did yon get burned there?" risked a stranger. "Burned?" said the carpenter as he proudly held up his arm. "That's not burned. They took that skin to graft onto brother Shlssler." This little incident shows that the members of the order do not do some thing for their fraternal brothers when they feel like it but are always willing to give a helping liana. Borden Deserves Credit If there is one man who should be given more credit for the building of the "Golden Rule" grocery than others it is certainly A. F. Borden, secretary of Fremont camp. He has worked for eight months making arrangements and securing money. "Borden doesn't work part of the time, but Is at it all the time," said a Woodman at the grocery yesterday. "He threw himself Into the work with his whole heart and never questioned as to whether we could raise the money or not. 'It's got to come,' he said when we wanted to wait until we secured the money before we began to build. It in his enthusiasm and enterprise that has carried us along." The building committee was com posed of A.. F. Borden, Klmer Farns worth, H. H. Hayward, John P. Helen and George Sowell. The latter drew the plans. All of these men have given much of their time from their business and have given freely of their means for tho consummation of this generous work.

They are so numerous that if you pene- trate the skin with the point of a needle you will touch a nerve and receive a shock— pain it is called. Aches and pains come from a pressure, strain or in- jury to a nerve ; the more prom- inent the nerve the greater the pain. When the pain comes from a large nerve it is called Neuralgia whether it be the facial nerves, or the heart, stomach, sciatic or other prominent nerve branch. To stop pain, then, you must relieve the strain or pressure upon the nerves. Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills do this. "I (suffered Intense pain, caused by neuralgia.

Miles Medical Co., Elkhart, Ind MINISTER TELLS OF SIN OF PROCRASTINATION WARN 9 HIS FOLLOWERS AGAINST WEAK INDECISION Rev. Stsphen Sherman, Jr., Preachet Sermon Bated Upon Value Of Indi vidual Willingness to Bear Burden of Labor With Fortitude Rev. Rtephen Sherman, Jr., rector of St. Athanaslus' Episcopal church, preached y?sterday morning from the text, Acts xxlv, 25: "And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance and Judg ment to come, Felix trembled and answered, 'Oo thy way this time; when I have a more convenient season I will call for thee. 1 " The preacher said In part: "Ood Is constantly speaking to us. Ite shows uh a path of duty. We hear his voice. We are charmed by It. We even recall It after that It has left us. But when the Christ reasons with us of righteousness, temperance and Judg ment to come, the Felix In our nature gains sway and our only answer to tho pleading Savior is 'Go thy way this time; when I have a more convenient season I will call for thee again.' "It Is the sin of Indecision, of pro crastination. It permeates all our activities, secular and religious, It la especially prominent In this our land of sunshine. The spirit of the old Spanish friars— noble heroes that they were— often lingers with us. It Is so easy to put off until tomorrow that which we should do today. Our love of the sunshine Is perpetual. The little task that would make the room a place of cheer Is neglected until articles be come littered about and confusion reigm instead of order. The business man receives the order, small, to he sure, but Important to someone. It is filler! In four or five flays, and then it Is not wanted. The Christian hears the call to a higher life of duty. The call \i God's written guarantee of divine help In the accomplishment of It, but the spirit of Felix reigns supreme and hi says,' 'Go thy way this time; when T have a convenient season I will hear thee again of this matter.' Drudgery Can Be Transfigured "So far ns this fault pertains to the secular life. It Is the result of our failure to see the part the little task plays In the make-up of life In general. God knew what he was doing when he gave us the dally round of duties. 'Burdensome,' we say. Yes, but even the burdensome task - ran' be trans figured by God. The rainbow is made possible only by the thousand drops of dew that the sun lifts from the blades of grans. The watch would not keep Its time did not the little ruby hold in place the dcllc itely-set hairspring. The mural decoration on some memorial church would lose Its- beauty, remove but one of the myrial stones in. the completed mosaic. Every task has its place In life's make-up. To us it is trivial; God* transfigures it. "So far as this fault reltes to the religious life, it is a result of our failure to see that religious truth hus to do with our own destiny. Men treat it as if it had, lo do with the hour, the ilay, the year. It it means anything it means our acceptance of it shall carry us forward Into a life that Is beyond. That Is why Christ Jesuit, always por trayed the heavenly vision. He . saw clearly that no man could lead the right kind of a life here unless he had first laid hold of some truth that had to do with eternity. Men call this 'other worldliness," but tne sinking fact in regard to other worldliness is the testimony which all history bears to Its importance.
