GAY DON JUAN HAD
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

Cure every kidney ill from back

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."

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.

SHE GETS HER RELEASE.
Chicago, 111., May 25. 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
"Coming storms on shooting corns
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

Humidity has nothing whatever to
do with all these "signs"; joints are
just as likely to ache during a "dry

says the weather 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
