Odell, who Is a grad uate of the famous Presbyterian Hospital Nurses' Training School of Miss Max well, of New York, has been selected superintendent. Upon her will devolve the control of the domestic concerns of the hospital and of the department of nurs ing. The hospital building, as It Is equipped. Is a model of neatness and comfort. On the first floor are the free dispensary, a large reception hall, the superintendent's room, a reception room for the dispensary patients, the pharmacy, a small operating room for minor surgical operations, and a dining room. The greater part of the second floor Is taken up by two large wards, one for male and the other for fe male patients. In each room are ten white enameled Iron hospital beds of the most improved design. Beside each bed Is a white enameled bedside table with a glass top. The baths are also located on this floor. Tho floors of the baths are laid with mosaic tiles, and the bathtubs, being on rollers, are movable to any part of the building, or to any of the wards. The HEART DISEASE. SOME FACTS BEGAHDING THE EAPID XWCEEASE OF HEAKT TROUBLES. Bo Xot He Alarmed, lint Ltjuk for the CaUKtf. Heart troubles, at least among Ameri cans, are certainly increasing, and while this may be largely due to the excitement and worry of American business life, it Is more often the result of weak stomachs, of poor digestion. Real, organic heart disease is Incurable; but not one case In a hundred of heart trouble is organic The close relation between heart trouble and poor digestion is because both organs arc controlled by branches of the same great nerves, the Sympathetic and Pneu mogastrlc. In another way, also the heart Is affect ed by that form of poor digestion, which causes gas and fermentation from half digested food; there is a feeling of op pression and heaviness In the chest caused by pressure of the distended stomach on the heart and lungs. Interfering with their action: hence arises palpitation and short nreatn. Poor digestion also poisons the blood. makes It thin and watery, which Irritates and weakens the hearL The most sensible, treatment for heart trouble is to Improve the digestion and to insure the prompt assimilation of food. This can best be, done by the regular use after meals, of some safe, pleasant and ef fective, digestive preparation, like Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, which may be found at most tfrug' stores arid which contain val uable, harmless, digestive elements in a pleasant, convenient form. It Is safe to say that the regular, per sistent use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets at meal time win cure any form of stom ach trouble except cancer of the stomach Full sized package of the tablets sold by oruggists at w cents.

OlllcerK of the Dlxtrlct ItCKtiiiciit Want to Serve Tiro Yen, It was stated at the War Department yesterday that 'certain officers of the First Regiment, District of Columbia Volun teer Infantry, are making a determined effort to have the regiment-retained In the service of the United Slates until the original term of" enlistment (two years) expires. Tho date named for the muster-out of the District Volunteers is November SO, when the two months' furlough will ex pire. It is said that the"6fllcers who want the regiment to remain In the service are exerting themselves In order to bring about that consummation in the three weeks remaining before the proposed muster-out, and that they have made many recent visits to the War Department and presented their arguments to Secretary Alger and Adjt. Gen. Corbln. They claim that many of the men are anxious to remain in the army and com plete their terms of enlistment, and that they are Inured to the Cuban climate and conditions, and therefore practically Im munes, and would prove to be a valuable command for garrison duty on that Island. It was also pointed out that the First District Regiment was one of the best drilled and disciplined In tho volunteer service, and for that reason, coupled with their severe campaigning, they would be practically a body of veterans. Those who are Interested In the reten tion of the regiment claim the ranks could be filled to the limit promptly, after tho letlrement on November 20 of all who wish to be mustered out A former non-commissioned officer of the regiment has learned that Col. Har ries himself Is not averse to the retention proposition, and that he would be willing to remain as colonel commanding. Whether the War Department Is serious ly considering this matter could not be learned. WHITE HOUSE PHONOGRAPH. NlKlitly ConcertH for the President' Amusement. The Presidential phonograph Is the lat est addition to the White House. It is what Is known as an entertainment phonograph and was purchased recently by direction of Mr. McKlnley, who had heard a similar Instrument give Its auto matic performance while he was on a visit to New York. The White House phonograph has a large megaphone attachment through which are rattled off comic songs of the day, funny recitations, and stump speech es. These voices in the tube can be heard distinctly through tho upper rooms In the Mansion on a quiet night, and the President as a matter of relaxation from the cares of' office spends many a quiet candlelight hour' Vlth the mystic ma chine listening to "There'll be a Hot Time In the Old Town," "On the Banks of the Wabash," "Gllhooly's Wake," and other selections. A Presidential phonograph concert is held almost nightly, and when the Chief Executive tires of the old tunes and jokes, new ones are procured. Usually, when the concert Is on in one of the upper private rooms, a crowd of White House attaches tiptoe up the stairs and congregate about the door to listen to the automatic voices and hear -the. President's hearty laughter. Definition of Relifrlon. Major James Albert Clark addressed the Theosophical Society last night, choosing for his subject "There Is No Re ligion Higher Than Truth," which Is the standing motto of the. organization over the world. The recent decision of a court In Massa chusetts, ruling that theosophy Is not a religion, prompted the major, as presi dent of the Washington branch, to reply, and in so doing some stress was laid upon the fact that the society believes that all religious Institutions should pay their share of the taxation of the society In which it exists. The Theosophists In Bos ton believed this, the speaker said, al though they appeared in court, claiming that their property should be exempt If that of other sects and denominations was not subject to.nax. ' Theosophists do not believe thai a creed' is religion, but a statement of what men think con cerning religion; that worship Is not re ligion, but a method of expressing It; that a church is not religion, but an or ganization of men and women to promote religion. Celebrating the Roof. Sen-Ices were held all day yesterday by the members of the congregation of the new Rehoboth Baptist Church, one of the most flourishing colored religious bodies in Southwest Washington, to com memorate the roofing in on Saturday of the new church edifice. The structure Is located on First Street, between N and O Streets. The ground was broken last July and on August-4 the cornerstone was laid with impressive- ceremonies and Masonic rites. Theaiow building is of brick and will. &p.mt cprapleted, cost about $S,B00. The services yesterday were held in the old church building, which has been moved to 'the fear-of the new one. '5: " i - . - 5 .ee..- MS OF GOLD WIHTBR The Old Patriarch at Hand With His Prophecies. GOOSE BONES ABE BROAD Corn Iltmkn Grow Thick Heavy Fur on AVoodchuelH Itairweeu Una Obtained Unimunl Helsht These and Other Unfnlllnir Indication Convince the Wenthcr-AVle That Snow Will lie Frcuucnt and Deen. The bearded old patriarch who lives In a log houso out on. the flats and lets row .boats In the Summer has discovered signs which convince him that the ap proaching Winter Is going to be a cold and snowy one. The old patriarch Is a weather prophet, has been a weather prophet for all time within the memory of the oldest who know him, and the signs upon which he bases his predic tions arc those provided by nature, which are infallible. The old patriarch predicts that man and beast will feel the nipping breezes and the biting frosts of many a.hoary day thls Winter. The hot chestnut man will absorb all the heat of his little stove and let his chestnuts grow chill; grip men will have to wear blankets and let their cars run wild, while they Hap their arms like animated windmills; everyone whose work calls him out of doors must either wear heavy woolens or freeze to death. The goose bone Is one sign, and so In fallible Is It that some .one has Immor talized It In a verse, which the old pa triarch has learned by heart, and re peats, to tho confusion of -doubters. It is as follows: The weather prophet lias a vogue, liaromttcrs tlte same; The goose-bone lias no vosue at all But it gets tliere just the same. And this year the goose bono Is broad and whl.te. That is enough, in 'the opin ion of the old patriarch, to satisfy any reasonable and reasoning mind that the coming Winter Is going to be colder than, the heart of a coal dealer or the cardiac organ of a plumber when he presents a bill for soldering a break In a frozen wa ter pipe. But If it should not happen to be convincing, he has other signs. Ragweed Is equally Infallible and shows the providence of nature. Nature knows when she Is going to perpetrate a winter with weather that will freeze the handles off brats knockers or anything usually unsusceptible to meteorological condi tions, and she provides accordingly. This year the ragweed has grown to an un usual height. The meaning Is plain. It is that thera will be snow: deep, lasting snow, when ordinary grass and seeds will be covered up. Hut for the foresight of mother na ture in making the ragweed grow tall, every bit of her bird food would be snowed under. As It Is the strong stalks of the ragweed will stick out over the snow and the winter birds will be able to feed upon ragweed seed all winter. And in cold weather, when there Is noth ing else at hand, ragweed seed Is mighty good food for winter birds. Surely that evidence Is enough to make one consult with the man who sells woolen underwear. But If It Isn't there are more behind. Look at the corn husk. Corn husks grow thick and heavy when the weather Is going to be cold. hy, the old patriarch hasn't Just made up his mind, but he knows that "they do. And this year he has observed that the husks are thicker and heavier than he ever saw them before. That means that it is going to be darned cold, and he's going to-lay In a big supply of drift wood for the old clay fire-place on one end of his log cabin, whether other folk take advantage of his weather wisdom or not. And he knows he's right for another reason. The woodchuck! Did you ever see a woodchuck? Don't suppose you did, "but tho old patriarch has; seen lots of 'em. Every year about this time he catches two or threo in a rabbit "gum" and examines their fur. He doesn't want to cat them. Nobody who knows as much about nature as the old patriarch would eat woodchucks. But he. knows that by their fur he can tell how the Winter weather Is going to be. If the fur Is long lrid so thick that you can hardly part It enough to see the soft blue white skin of the woodchuck, then the weather is going to be cold, and nature, again, has provided the animal with an extra heavy coat in anticipation. And this year the woodchuck's fur Is as heavy as the old patriarch ever saw It. Then, too but these are enough. The old patriarch is willing to glvo all the rea sons enumerated above, but when they fail to convince ho loses patience and shuts himself up In his log hut, where he contemplates the roaring lire he Is going to have all Winter. And rather than make the old patriarch angry, we won't give away any 'more of the secrets he has wrested from mother nature unless he becomes especially desir ous of seeing them in print, which Is doubtful. STABBED WITH A PENKNIFE. John J. Drake Arretted on a Charge of AHHnuIt. John J. Drake, twenty-six years of age, a very respectable looking and well edu cated young man, is locked up at the Sixth Precinct Station on a charge of assault committed on J. M.

The flght lasted until Ninth Street and Penn sylvania Avenue was reached, when Drake stabbed Townsend In the side with a penknife. Townsend went to the Emer gency Hospital, where his wound, a slight one, was treated. Policeman Newklrk heard of the cut ting and arrested Drake at the hotel about o'clock Saturday night.

Many men become sexually neat early in lite,. ur i ju&i prior 10 oia age. rome Decause or dis&tipation or high living; some because of worry over bad crops, business reverses or finan cial failures; some because of marital execases; but by far the, larger portion of these who are prematurely weak, debilitated, or Impotent In their sexual organs, have become so through early habits of youth.
