ONE THOUGHTLESS HOUR
How a Glad Vacation Was Fol
lowed by Bitter Pain,
A TREACHEROUS ENEMY
A Comiroi Experience and the Lesson It Con.
tains for People Fond of Living
Out of Doors.
A young man in Philadelphia was fa
tally injured not long ago by so innocent
a thing as a cuff button. He fell in such
a manner that the button was driven
deep into the flesh of his wrist. The
wound, though painful, was not consid
ered dangerous, and no great precaution
was considered necessary until signs of
lockjaw appeared. Then, of course, all
treatment was useless.
This Is one example of the power for
mischief of little things. Here is another
less dramatic, but more common ami,
therefore, more impressive.’ People who
went from town to country In the beauti
ful summer of 1895, delighted to spend
most of their time out of doors. They
even lay on the soft grass at night.watch
ing the stars and enjoying the cool
breeze. If, upon rising, a man found his
back stiff he said, "I must have been in
one position too long.” If the? stiffness
persisted until the next day he said, "I
guess I must have taken a little cold.”
But now vacations are over and the au
tumn is well advanced. That soreness
and weakness in the lower part of the
back continue, and with them are other
disorders. Shivering and fever alternate,
there is an unconquerable feeling of lassi
tude at times, the urine is opaque and
sometimes bloody, the skin is palid and
the face bloated just beneath the eyes.
Digestion is poor and appetite almost
Dot us look tlie matter in the face with
out flinching. This is more than a little
cold, although in the beginning It was
only a sudden checking of the action of
the skin and kidneys. Now it Is the
dreaded Bright's disease, a foe to life
quite as deadly as consumption. Com
mon sense would dictate that no time be
lost In vain regrets that more prudence
was not exercised in the country. Bet ns
find n remedy if we can.
We are fortunate to know that Warner’s
Safe Cure will bring back health and en
ergy and normal action of the kidneys.
It is the function of the kidneys to expel
from the system broken down tissues in
the form of urea and uric acid, together
with certain salts that have done their
work. No other organ than the kidneys
can rid the body of this death laden mat
ter. Congested, Inflamed kidneys act as a
drain to keep poison in the system.
What makes Warner's Safe Cure the
wonder and admiration of the medical
profession is dts power to soothe the in
flammation in the kidneys and to allay
the congestion so that the urine, once
more healthy in color and consistency,
carries away the waste freely and
One does not necessarily die soon of
Bright’s disease. He may lead a misera
ble uncertain invalid life for years. But
what weary dragging years they are.
Let the sufferer shake off his burden of
sickness and suspense. He will find hope
and health In Warner’s Safe Cure.

A. O. Lane was arguing a demurrer in
the case of Hillman aguinst the Morris
Mining company yesterday afternoon be
fore Judge Sharpe when Attorney
Weatherly for the plaintiff remarked that
Mr. Lane might save his God-given
breath, as he had Just been served with
an injunction from the chancery court
restraining plaintiffs from further prose
cution of the case at law. After hearing
the injunction read Judge Sharpe relin
quished the case to equity Jurisdiction.
The suit arose out of a contract regard

This concert will be under the leader

that ever filled this noted pleasure resort,
as the attraction and cause for whicli It

‘’Sinbad," that elaborate extravaganza
which is to be a.t O’Brien’s tomorrow
night, has played to phenomenal business
in every southern city visited this sea
son. In speaking of its engagement in
Atlanta the Constitution says:
“ ‘Sinbad,’ as presented by the Ameri
can IvMravaganxa company at the By
i ceum theater, has ceiCalnly shone like a
gem of rarest brilliancy. It is the first
example in Atlanta's theatrical history
of one play of any character having play
ed a whole week at high prices and pack
ed the theater. This Kate of affairs is
entirely due to the merit of the perform
ance." Mr. David Henderson made som**
very broad and sweeping promises, and1 it
is to his infinite credit that he lias kept
them. Although the company is the
largest yet seen here numeric-ally, it 13
also strong individually. Dashing Irene
Verona, sprightly Anna. Suits, funny
Jessie voters, dainty Ailoen Burke, comic
Joseph Doner and big Douglas Flint have
«'arh created for themselves a strong
local following, to say nothing of the ar
tistic achievements of Messrs. Gullrnette,
Kierrpan, Turner. Murphy and Blaney.
The ballet led by Mile. Paris, a really
great dancer, and the orchestra, under
Clarence Itogerwon’s baton, have lent no
little to the general charm of the enter
tainment. The ‘standing room only’
sign was up again last night.”
In Chicago and the west, even to the
Pacific coast, the name of David Hender
son is a guarantee of all that Is best In
spectacular burlesque. For years he has
been at work perfecting his American
Extravaganza company, until It is at
present on a. par with any organisation of
Its kind In the country. Having conquer
ed the west, this enterprising manager is
now extending his domain eastward and
scuthward. Burlesque has been a much
abused although legitimate form of
amusement. Unscrupulous managers
have so degraded It into what have been
commonly termed ‘ieg shows” that
among-the better classs It has fallen Into
sad repute. As a result the burlesques
of the college boys have been about the
only ones to attract really first-class au
diences of late years. Burlesque in Its
best state Is a varied but harmonious
blending of opera, spectacle and farcical
comedy. As the features are so numerous
and ephemeral, each being calculated
lo please the eye. charm the ear. or stir
the risibilities for a moment, only until
something new takes Its place, no con
sistent plot can be carried. Consequent
ly It Is customary to parody some time
honored and familiar tale, like that of

of King's Royal Germetuer In relieving
night sweats resulting from the debili

In France the bimetallic system of re

perfectly to guard and maintain the gold

gold Is demanded for export, a premium
Is charged for it, and even then the hold

face value In gold, the rest being paid in

them all there must be on; BEST. THE BEST is THE
EQUITABLE. If you wish to know why, send for: i, the
report of the Superin:endent of Insurance for the State of New

Equitable’s supremacy: First, its financial stability; second,
its great profits and advantages to living policy-holders; third,
