THE RICH3IOND PALLADIU3I AND SUX-TELEGRA3I, TUESDAY, MARCH 31. 1908. i ' i RUSHES HEARING OF CT CASES Judge Has Violated All Preced ents in His Desire to Clear the Docket. CONVENTIONS NOT IN IT. COURT HOLDS THAT BUSINESS SHOULD BE ATTENDED TO NOT WITHSTANDING THE WHIMPER INGS OF ATTORNEYS. Not only has Judge Fox, of the Wayne circuit court, violated all pre cedent In setting cases for trial during the last week of the concluding term of ooart, but-he will dispense with the tfsaai wacartlon. Since the time of the nomination, the Judge has made a i taa$rfort to clear the docket or as ; many cases as possible. He ha3 been 1 quit successful, but not as mucti so 1 m he had: toped for and consequently has decided upon the abolition of pre X cedents. So desirlous has been the "i court to accomplish the purpose, that i the state republican convention was 3 not given any consideration and cases "1 have been set for trial throughout this week. The attorneys who are Involv ed do not accept their task very en 's thusiastically, but have no other re course. The court calendar is so crowded that the Judge has begun to set cases for trial next term. The April term does not begin until Monday, April 6. On that date in accordance with cus tom the Judge will call the docket, -y which Is now in process of prepara ; tion in the county clerk's office. The 'i court's decision not to hold any vaca- tion between the close of the January and the beginning of the April terms will inconvenience the clerk to some extent. It has been customary to per mit the clerk a week's vacation from j court attendance, so he may have time ; to prepare the docket for the new 1 term. ECZEMA SCALES DROPPED OFF. Sufferer Notes Peculiar Result While Obtaining Cure by Use of Exter nal Liquid Remedy. "I scaled like a fish when I began using D. D. D. Prescription," writes P. J. Welmer, of Connellsvllle, Pa. "I had doctored for Eczema with two doctors for more than a month and got worse all the time. After using only three bottles of D. D. D. I can truth fully say I am cured." Germ scales and a crustlike skin, surrounding the unsightly sores, are characteristic of Eczema and similar f)-m 'i'seases. According to the best medical opinion, these scales are caus ed by bacilli feeding upon and consum ing the weaker parts of the cuticle. When these scales begin to fall away, it is a sign the bacilli have been exterminated and that new healthy skin is being formed beneath. Nature takes care of this form of cure, but sometimes the Eczema scales multiply faster than nature can remove them. To assist Nature, use a mild oil of wintergreen, properly compounded as in D. D. D. Prescription. Just a few drops of D. D. D. Pre scription gives instant relief from that awful burning itch. As soon as this potent soothing liquid is applied to the skin, the itch is gone, soon the sores dry up and the new smooth white skin replaces the scale's which had formed. D. D. D. Prescription is composed of oil of wintergreen and other healing herbs and plants. Hundreds of re markable cures cases which the doc tors had given up are now credited to D. D. D. Prescription which Is ap plied externally as a wash. Why not try a bottle of D. D. D. Prescription and stop that awful itch? For sale by all druggists.

Today the fans at Detroit are throw ing fits of joy. The great and only Ty Cobb after pouting and playing to the grand stand for some weeks, has finally joined the Detroit squad for spring practice. Burns, the new first baseman of the locals, reported yesterday afternoon for practice. He is a nifty looking lad, about tlx feet in heighth and will tip the scales at about 180. Last year Burns played with the crack Alliance, O.. team. It is doubtful if all of Manager Jes sup's big gang of hopefuls report here for practice but it is quite probable that there will be at least eighteen players saunter into the city between now and Thursday. All of the squad will be quartered at the Central hotel. It is expected that Sox Quigley will be here in time to play with the locals Thursday night when they tackle the Zanesville team.

"There is a prejudice against sugar which is not justified by physiological reasoning," says the London Lancet. "Sugar Is one of the most powerful foods which we possess, as it is the cheapest or at any rate one of the cheapest In muscular labor no food appears to be able to give the same powers of endurance as sugar, and comparative practical experiments have shown without the least doubt that the hard physical worker, the athlete or the soldier on the march is much more equal to the physical strain placed upon him when he has had in cluded In his diet a liberal allowance of sugar than when sugar Is denied to him. "Trophies, prizes and cups have un doubtedly been won on a diet In which sugar was intentionally a notable con stituent It has even been said that sugar may decide a battle and that jam after all is something more than a mere sweetmeat to the soldier. The fact that sugar is a powerful 'muscle food' accounts probably for the disfa vor into which It falls, for a compara tively small quantity amounts to an excess, and excess is always inimical to the easy working of the digestive processes. "Sugar satiates; it is a concentrated food. Where sugar does harm, there fore, it is invariably due to excess. Taken in small quantities and distrib uted over the dally food intakes, sugar contributes most usefully In health to the supply of energy required by the body. "And it is a curious fact that the man who practically abstains from sugar or reduces his diet to one almost free from carbohydrates in favor of protein foods, such as meat, often shows feeble muscular energy and an indifferent capacity for physical endur ance." Why Silance Reigned. "Darling," he cried in tones of deep emotion, "at last you are safely in my arms and nothing shall part us more." The object of his touching words and passionate embrace made no response, but remained cold and silent Tears welled into his eyes. "Dearest." he continued, "how can 1 prove my love? Is there no sacrifice I can make for your sweet 6ake, no suffering I can endure?" Thi9 final appeal was irresistible. "The best thing you can do. my man." said a gruff voice, "is to come along with me." And a brutal police man unfastened him from the lamp post and led him silently away. Lon don Scraps.

Congratula tions Gov. Tommy Ritter erstwhile chief clown in the center garden, when the last year's Richmond base ball team was on the field, has been signed to play with the Krell-French team of New Castle. Ritter held out for a raise in the salary line and secured it. He is a fast man on the bases and is hard to pitch to because of his size bir. as a batter well look at his last year's average. A billiard tournament between some of the younger players of the city has been arranged and will be conducted at Simmon's cigar store during the next two weeks. Ten players have been entered and all agree to abide by the rules governing the contests, now being pulled off between the older players. Coach Vail of Earlham stated this morning that base ball practice would begin immediately, but that so long as the weather remains inclement, no active practice will be held outside of the gymnasium. The men are all in good form, nearly all of them having trained for the football and basket ball seasons and no trouble is expected from that quarter.

The Reason Camp Meeting John Allen Got a Maine Central Pass. Camp Meeting John Allen was one of the most picturesque characters of his time In Maine. Apropos of railroad passes a very interesting story is told. It occurred when Governor Morrill was president of the Maine Central. Allen's applications were refused a number of times, because if there was one thing above all others which Mor rill disliked it was to issue passes. The governor came down to his office in a somewhat brusque frame of mind that day. Those familiar with the storm signals quietly backed off and waited for an explosion. It came. One of the first letters opened was from Camp Meeting John Allen requesting a pass for "self and wife." The secretary approached his chief with some hesita tion. "Here is another letter from Mr. Al len asking for a pass," he said and laid the missive gingerly on the governor's desk. The governor read it through and biased away for a few minutes; then, tossing the letter to the astonished secretary, he said. "Make it out." The young man retired and began to fill In the various blank lines, but when lie came on "what account" the pass was Issued he was puzzled and ven tured to seek information. "On what account, governor?" he asked. The chief looked Irately over his spectacles. "Account, account? Account of persistence. Be sure to put it in, too," and he growled as the young man passed out, "These Methodist parsons may have to get tis all passes on the road to heaven, and I want Maine Central to have good connections with Camp Meeting John Allen's route." New York Tribune. The Only Digestible Kind. A young man who is striving for po litical honors and who therefore feels called upon to do considerable public talking was recently waited upon by a delegation of men residing In one of the poorer regions of his district lie was greatly pleased when their spokesman requested a speech, from him at an early date. "What kind of a speech?" he asked. "An after dinner speech," replied a wag in a shabby coat Youth's Com panion. A Nice Friend. "You're a nice friend to have!

RAILROAD MEN ARE FIGHTING WATSON Headquarters Are Established In Indianapolis to Aid in Defeating Him. SPANGLER IS THERE. DISPATCHES SAY THAT CONDUCT OR WILL DO EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO DEFEAT SIXTH'S CANDIDATE. According to a dispatch, William Y. Spangler of this city, u Pennsylvania conductor, O. P. Smith or Logansport, and Theodore Perry of Indianapolis, will be in charge of the labor headquar ters during the republican state con vention. Mr. Spangler is a well known conductor on the Panhandle. The object of this bureau of labor or ganizations, is to defeat the nomina tion of James K. Watson for governor. Tomorrow and the day following, there will be a number of local railroad nieu go to Indianapolis and assist in the fight against Watson. It is stated that the railroad men all over the state favor the candidacy of William L. Tay lor. All Wayne county and Richmond railway and labor union men have been extended an invitation to visit the headquarters, which will be in room :S, Claypool hotel. The labor polit ical committees will center in this room and will radiate to work against Watson, who by the appointment of Blakely as state factory inspector, in curred the opposition of organized la bor. The fight against the gubernatorial candidate from the Sixth district, will be carried into the convention and an effort will be made to influence every delegate against him. It is known that in several counties delegates who otherwise would support Watson, will refuse to do so because of the opposi tion of organized labor. I A. Fresh Air Is the Best Cure aa Well as the Best Preventive. The most effective weapon with which to fight pneumonia is fresh air. real fresh air, and lots of It. The fact that pneumonia might be called simply a shutting off of oxygen shows how important it is to give the patient plenty of air. In one large Xew York hospital sufferers from the disease are carried to the roof and kept there day and night. When your child grows 111, move it to the largest and sunniest room in the house and open tho windows. If it is too cold for th'. . have another room near by into which the patient may he move 1 at least three times a day to permit a thorough ventilation of the sick room. All unnecessary furniture and all pictures, hangings and other im pedimenta should be taken out of both rooms. An attack of pneumonia begins in a manner which suggests a very bad cold. The patient has a chill and a fever and suffers from pains In the side. A cough soon appears, and the breath becomes short nnd quick. The valiant battle of the overworked heart is indicated by a quick pulse and flush ed cheeks. Soon there are signs of great exhaustion, with headache, sleep lessness and (sometimes) delirium. During all of this period the blood Is waging a tremendous war upon the in vading germs. If it is destined to lose, the exhaustion will grow more and more marked, and the patient will die. But If It is destined to win there will come a time It will be between the fifth and the tenth day when the pa tient will suddenly seem brighter. The temperature will fall, the breathing will be more regular, and the violent jumping of the pulse will cease. When this happens, it is a sign that the bat tle is won. Delineator.

A bowling ball looks as If it were easy to make, yet its manufacture in volves a long process covering a period of three days. The actual time put upon it is only a matter of three hours, but the work is slow and requires long waits between each step toward comple tion. A log free from knots and cracks is first cut into pieces a trifle larger than the diameter of the ball after It Is finished. This allows for two little projections on either side called "bits," where the clamps of the lathe hold the block of wood while revolving at light ning speed under the keen edged tool cutting Into the hard fiber like a sharp knife slicing a fresh cheese. This preliminary turning and trim ming occupy only a few minutes, when the block is shaved and pared down to the required size. The bits then are cut off and the whole thing sandpapered. coat of shellac Is ap plied, and the ball is put one side to dry. It then gets another sandpaper ing. This is no sooner done than the workman again carefully applies the shellac brush. When the shellac dries the second time, the surface is rubbed with oil. The work doesn't stop then, for the moment the oil has dried the ball gets another vigorous sandpaper ing. Then for the last time it gets more shellac. When thoroughly dry, the sphere Is ready for the two holes to be cut for the bowler's thumb and index finger. The last stage of the labo rious process is the polishing, which gives the ball the appearance It has when it reposes on the rack waiting to be sent crashing down the alley. Sometimes there is a considerable waste in cutting up the logs because of cracks and fissures in the wood. On this account an ordinary sized log may yield only one block sound enough to put on the turning lathe, while it ought to make six or seven. The life of the average bowling ball is about two years. The best balls cost $5 or $6, while the cheapest scale down near the dollar mark. Pattt: Gold Medal Flour Is very highest quality Lavinu from 3 to 6 and from 7 to lO Chas. H.

Wil liam Hunt is suffering from burns sus tained by the explosion of gas, while he was placing a chandelier in a home in Cambridge City. This peculiar ac cident happened yesterday afternoon.

But in July, 1S54, Harnden & Co., Thomp son & Co.. and Klneslev Jt- Cn wm consolidated into the Adams Express company, with a capital of $1,200,000. By 1S75 the capital stock had beea increased to $12,000,000. The com mission then takes tip the question ot dividends paid by this company. "As to dividends on this stock ia its watered condition, we quote the. answer of the correspondent to com mission's interrogatory No. 5: '"In answer to Interrogatory No. 5: The company has no stock. Its prop erty is represented by 120,000 inter ests, or shares. Dividends were paid during the year 1906 amounting to $10 a share, and since January 1, 1907, dividends have been paid amounting to $6 a share. The company has paid dividends xipon its shares varying from $4 a share to $10 a share per an num for many years. Early in the ex istence of the company there were sev eral stock .dividends made, but no stock dividends have been declared for upward of 30 years." The commission asserts that the information It has unearthed indi cates the Wells-Fargo Company earn ed a dividend of 76 per cent last year In its actual money investment. ' Railroads Hold Stock. The commission presents statistics to show that the stock of the express companies Is largely controlled by the railroads. It Is shown by its investigation, the commission says, that express rates, especially for short distances on lo cal traffic, are just about what they were many years ago. These rates have been maintained despite the fact that business has been increasing at an amazing rate. The commission submits that while expenses increase as traffic increases, they increase by no means in the same proportion. The commission shows that the rates in this country are much higher than charged by foreign express companies. If you like a long cigar, get a Path findera cents. WORKMEN INJURED.
