PAGE FIVE. GAY DON JUAN HAD F!VE"SOULMATES" The Names Will Be Revealed In Suit to Break Million aire Snell's Will. UPHEAVAL IS PROMISED. SOCIETY IS ASTIR FOR FEAR THAT MANY PROMINENT CLIN TON, ILLINOIS WOMEN WILL BE DRAGGED INTO LIMELIGHT. Clinton, 111.. May 23. The names of five "soul mates" will be revealed when the love letters written by women to the late Colonel Thomas Snell, the eccentric millionaire, whose Bun is contesting the $ 1 ,300,0'JO will, are read in court. This was admitted today by one of the lawyers, who said that three wom en in addition to the wife of Rev. E. A. Hamilton and Mabel Snell McNam ara are involved in the burning mes sages found in the old man's trunk after his death. When an adjournment was ordered until Monday it had already become apparent that the intention of the con testants of the will is to force into record letters from dozens of women and girls written in such a vein as to support the claim that Colonel Snell was a paranoiac and incapable of transacting business when the will w as made. Every phase of the fight to break the will of the "iron wille d"millionaire has been watched closely on behalf of many women whose names may become connected with that of the dead Don Juan if all the letters are admitted, and it is no secret that with the introduction of the late Col onel Snell's collection of love letters will come the most startling social upheaval ever known in the state's jiistory. SO DECEPTIVE. Many Richmond People Fail to Real ize the Seriousness. Backache is so deceptive. It comes and goes keeps you guess ing. Learn the cause then cure it. Nine times out of ten it comes from the kidneys. That's why Doan's1 Kidney Pills cure it. Cure every kidney ill from back ache to diabetes. Here's a Richmond case to prove it. Patrick Mitchell, of 112 North Fifth street, Richmond, Ind., says: "My wife thinks Doan's Kidney Pills is a great remedy for backache and other pains that come from the kidneys. She was weak, and miserable for a long time with kidney trouble and suffered a great deal of pain in the back and in other parts of the body. She tried many remedies but did not find much benefit until she began using Doan's Kidney pills. They helped her from the very beginning of their use and she wa-s soon cured. We both think a great deal of Doan's Kidney Pills." For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, New York, solo agents for the United States.

YOUTHS AS SUICIDES Alarming Statistics Have Just Been Made Pub lic. DUE TO FAST LIVING. Chicago. May 25. Suicide by boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 13 years, has increased nearly a per cent between 1900 and 1907. in thirty seven American cities of 100,000 pop ulation or over. This was the appall ing fact established by statistics gath ered by the Chicago Bureau of Statis tics and published yesterday. The cause, physicians declare, is to be found in the f ist living of the period with the wear and tear on the nerv ous system, which accompanies the mad scramble for wealth. The Zany. I can remember when a circus clown was spoken of as a "zany," a word now only found In colored alphabets for children, disinterred from the diction ary to meet the exigencies cf the letter Z. This is, I think, a beautiful word. It is of course the soft Venetian form of Giovanni as SS. Giovanui e Paolo is "Zanipolo" in the speech of the doliers.

All the Rialto is seething and a-boiling and giving off a procigous steam of words because of the following note received by Miss Ida Doerge, the triggest young thing in Joe Weber's company: "My Dear Miss Doerge: Your en gagement with n.e will terminate in two weeks, as per contract. Very truly, Joe Weber." Miss Doerge was asked to wear the Directoire gown in State street yester day, but flatly objected, saying it wa3 indecent. She wears tights in the play but says that is business. So Miss Carlisle wore the Directoire gown and nearly precipitated a riot and Miss Doerge is out of a position. SCIENCE AFTER ALL Weather Man Tells Why Corns Act as Good Barome ters. REASONS ARE GIVEN FOR IT Chicago, 111.. May -J.". -After all there is scientific basis for the old rhyme : "Coming storms on shooting corns presage. Your aches will throb, your hollow tooth will rage." It's the low barometric. pressure that sets the aches "to throb" and "the hollow tooth to rage." Profes sor Cox, the weather man, had to ad mit that United States Judge Bet Il ea's rheumatic twinges were, after all, good signs of rain, and so he explain ed scientifically what caused it, thus: "When there is a lower barometric pressure, the weighing down of the air is diminished, and accordingly the air in the bloodvessels and skin ex pands, causing pain. A lower barom eter always precedes rain, and this explains why rheumatism always is more painful just, before a storm. When the barometer rises, the outside air becomes heavier, the pressure of the air within the body is lessened and the pain ceases." According to Pro fessor Cox, this is the basic, principle of all the old-time weather saws. "Old sinners who have all Points of Compass in their joints Can by their pains and aches find All turns and changes of the wind." Humidity has nothing whatever to do with all these "signs"; joints are just as likely to ache during a "dry low" as a "wet. low" barometer; so says the weather man. "BrimUe seems to have a good deal more money than brains." "Yes. AH he inherited from his fa ther was the money." LOCKS ARE FOUND Placed in a Tree Fifty Years Ago by a Shelby Coun ty Man. A DISEASE PREVENTATIVE. Shelbyville. Ind., May 25. Hugh L. Dobbins of Shelby County has in his possession locks of hair which were dipped from his head and that of his sister, Miss Frances A. Dobbins, now of Indianapolis, fifty years ago. The Dobbins family resided in Shelby County on a farm. When they were quite young a disease was raging in this part of the country which resem bled the present-day grip. It. was called phthisic. The stxry went the rounds that if locks of the hair were removed and placed in a tree and plugged up, the persons from whose heads they were clipped would never have the disease. Hugh Dobbins, Sr.. clipped the hair of his son and daugh ter. A few days ago the tree in which the locks were plugged up was cut down by Shelby Stafford, who resides on the farm. Mr. Dobbins was given permission to find the plug and he finally located it six inches from the bark and several feet from the ground. Both locks of hair were still there, well preserved. They were of a red tinge, made so by the tree, which was walnut.

GIVES DP HIS CLAIMS Grandson of Great Liberator Of Mexico Enters Cath olic Order. WILL WRITE OF THEOLOGY. Washington, D. C, May IT.. Trince D. Augustine Iturbicie. grandson of the great liberator of Mexico, heir to a throne, highly educated and a memher of the "Jeune.sse Dore" of European capitals, has forsaken the ways of the fashionable world and joined the Third Order of St. Francis. In Washington society Prince Itur tiid was prominent for many years. Suffering from a severe illness he has of late spent many months in the hos pital. He now asserts that ho has renounced all political ambitions and that he fill never make any attempt to regain his claims in Mexico. He ex pects to devote his life mainly to writ ings of a theological character. The Third Order of St. Francis con trols the monastery in Brookland. known as the Mount of the Holy Sep ulcher. While the Prince will wear no habit; his life will he one of nniet devotion ad far from all worldly amusements. This order was found ed in the thirteenth century by St. Francis of Assissi and numbers many thousands in its ranks, some of the members belonging to the mendicant orders. TO MAKE "GETAWAY" President Roosevelt Already Laying Plans to Leave Washington. IT IS HIS LAST VACATION. Washington. D. C, May 2-r. Presi dent Roosevelt is planning to make his annual "get away" along about June 2 Unless his present plans miscarry, he will for some months aft er that date, direct the affairs of the government from his summer home at Oyster Bay, L. I. The chief executive is said to be eagerly looking forward to this last official vacation. for it marks the last milestone in his presi dential career. Ere another vacation time rolls around he will once more be Citizen Roosevelt, care-free and at lib erty to indulge his every fancy for st renuosi ties geographical, zoological or. mayhap, political. Mrs. Roose velt and the children probably will precede the president by some days, for it is likely that preparations for the coming convention and campaign will preclude his leaving before the date mentioned.
