PAGE SIX. MODERN CINDERELLA IS now LONDON Girl of the Workhouse Mar ries One of the City's Financiers. A CHARMING STORY. LITTLE GIRL'S LIFE WAS TEM PESTUOUS UNTIL SHE WAS d AID IN FAMILY INTO WHICH SHE MARRIED. London, May 30. A romantic story f Cinderella in real life, a story of the rise of a poor but beautiful work kouse girl from squalor to untold wealth, has been revealed by the Kev. W. Hobbs, a West Norwood minister. The other day he received a letter bearing a West End address in which the writer enclosed a check as a dona tion to the many good works with which the reverend gentleman was as sociated. In her letter she declared her intention to call on the reverend gentleman, and not many days after ward a handsome carriage and pair drew up outside the pastor's house in Baiter's hill, and, to his amazement, Mr. Hobbs recognized in his caller a former protege. The story revealed by him rivals the :moBt picturesque stories of Hans An derson and the Brothers Grimm. He tells step by step of the progress of a 'pauper girl who was educated by the Lambeth parish, who went out into life when she was fifteen years old as a domestic servant, but who, on ac count of her charm and beauty, rose I'from a position of drudgery and pov- jerty to become one of the most bril liant of Mayfair hostesses. Today the little workhouse girl is the wife of a wealthy London finan cier. Society comes to her house in Mayfair, but few know that their , wit ty and gracious hostess was, not so long ago a child of the workhouse. For obvious reasons her name cannot be disclosed, but the story of her career is a striking romance of real life. She was born in a by street in London, and (when she was quite a child circum stances brought her to the care of the Lambeth parish. The guardians had her educated, and at school her indus try and intelligence were noticeable. Bhe went out "in service," and might jhave been there today but for the fact that her position in the house was made impossible by local gossip. Her first place was in the house of an officer on the south coast. Rumor, however, was busy concerning her em- Iployer, and the woman guardians de clined to visit his house. In conse quence the guardians decided to fetch the girl back to the workhouse. But the girl protested, and was determined not to eat the bread of poverty. I Her refinement, umisual in the class I to which she belonged and her individ ual charm impressed Mr. Hobbs, who. as one of the guardians, took her in charge. Through his aid she got an other situation. The turning point of her life, however, was when she went to a nursing home. i Hither came a fashionable patient and she like everyone else who came In contact with the erstwhile pauper girl was fascinated with her pretty ways. She became a lady's maid in the house of the wealthy lady. And here, just i.as they do in novels, the son of the thouae fell in love with her. ' Opposition was useless. They were separated for a time as a test, just as f Richard Feverel was separated from Lucy. And eventually they were mar tried, and now she is one of society's I most charming leaders. , But as the above little incident shows, she has not forgotten her bene Sfactor, and is today relieving the mo notony of life in society by minister ing to .the needs of those who are less f happily circumstanced. St. Louis, Mo., May 30. When Frank J. Dexter of 5159 Maple avenue learned that his 18-year-old daughter, Amy Adele Dexter, had eloped to Clay ton and been married there by a jus tice of the peace, he immediately is sued orders that she should be remar ried in the family home by the family pastor. So Carle Crane Mayhew who became the husband of Miss Dexter at the County Court House May 11 last, again promised to take her as his wife the other night. The bride's father learned from re porters of the first wedding. He questioned his daughter and her hus band, but they would not, admit the truth. Finally Mr. Dexter went to Clayton, where Justice Werremeyer's description confirmed the newspaper men's story, although assumed names had been written into the marriage records. When Mayhew called at the Dexter residence Mr. Dexter told him to pre pare for remarriage. The Dexter home was hastily decorated, and, in the pres ence of members of both families, the eloping bride and bridegroom were re married with the ritual of the Episco pal church, read by the Rev. William Elmer of St. Phillip's church. They will live at the Dexter residence. Mr. Mayhew is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Mayhew with whom he resided at the Park Hotel.

With Washington, May 30. The annual output of forest products in the Unit ed States has been estimated by the department of agriculture as amount ing to yi.'JOO.OiKUtoO. These figures were 107. This compares favor ably with the entire mineral output which in the corresponding year ap proximated $1,750,000,000. The larg est item of value in the lumber produc tion was 40,000,000,000 board measure feet of lumber valued at $6.V.000.000. Next in order was firewood of 100.0O0, 000 cord, valued at $350,000,000. These two items, together make a billion dollars, or 83 per cent of the entire forest output. SILLON" MOVEMENT CONDEMNED BY POPE Movement Organized to Dis cuss Social Question. Paris, May SO. Paris has heard that the French Christian Democratic movement, known as the "Sillon," is to be condemned by the pope, who has already forbidden a similar movement in Italy. The originator of it, M Marc Sagnier, an ardent Roman Cath olic, is expected to submit to the papal decision. The "Sillon" originated for the discussion of the social question Atlanta, Ga., May 30. Georgia is witnessing one of the most spectacular fights for the gubernatorial nomina tion that has occurred in years. The battle between Governor Hoke Smith and Former Railroad Commis sioner Joseph H. Brown. The contest, which has been mark ed with bitterness throughout, will be decided by the people at the primary June 4. While on the stump during his re markable campaign two years ago. Smith repeatedly attacked Railroad Commissioner Brown. The two held j opposite views on the regulation of the railroads. "If I am made governor," thundered Smith time and time again, "I will re move this man Brown from office." 1 The governor has kept his word. H, removed Brown. Up to the middle of March no one dreamed of opposition to Governor Smith. Then Brown announced his candidacy for governor. A great laugh went up from the governor's supporters. The governor publicly announced he would pay no attention to the candidacy of Brown. Smith awakened rather late to the fact that a real danger confronted him. He practically abandoned his executive officers and inaugurated a tour of the state, making campaign speeches at small and large cities alike. Governor Smith and his opponent are as dissimilar as it is possible for two human beings to be. Smith is a physical giant, and considered one of the most powerful campaigners in the country. He does not know fatigue. He can ride on a freight car all day, speak several hours in the evening. and dictate letters the balance of the night. His capacity for work is a marvel to all who know him. Brown is small and delicate. He does not weigh more than HO pounds and probably could not make himself heard twenty feet away in a public speech. But he can write wonderful arguments. He knows the inner af fairs of the railroad business as few men know it. He is not of prepossessing appear ance, (iovernor bmitn nas made tne mistake of ridiculing his physical de fects. Brown has not made a speech dur ing the campaign. Nor will he allow any one to speak for him. His cam paign is conducted entirely by open letters to the people through the press and by personal letters. MAIMING AND KILLING HAS BEEN CHECKED Penalties for Failure to Com ply With Block Signals, the Cause. Washington, May 30. The maiming and killing of railroad passengers, has been checked, temporarily, at least, by the strict enforcement of penalties for failure to comply with the block sig nal and other laws for the protection of travelers.

THERE IS NO PRETTIER PLACE IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE THAN THE ISLAND AT PRESENT TIME, IT IS SAID. Th. Chinaman Is Utterly Devoid of Reverence In His Religion. How the Chinaman regards his idol Is told by the Kev. John MacGowan: "The Chinese is a person utterly de void of reverence, sentiment or devo tion in his religion. W Ith hiin it is a matter either of fear or of business, but mainly the latter. A house Is plagued with sickness, which is put down not to bad sanitation or other natural causes, but to the presence of evil spirits. This leads to a visit to the nearest temple to get the Idol to drive them away. A new business is going to be commenced, but before doing so it is deemed essential to get the sup port of the idols. If one idol says it will not succeed another is appealed to for its opinion, and if it is favorable it is at once accepted as the correct one. "Should the venture turn out a fail ure no reproach of any kind is uttered against the god whose prediction has been falsified. The man takes the blame upon himself. Ills character has not been pure, he says, or he was born tinder an evil star, or he was naturally unlucky and so was bound to fail in anything that he undertook. "Men never dream of thinking about their idols as we do about God. No affection is shown for them. It is most amusing to watch the faces of the Chi nese when you ask them if the idols love them. The eyes gleam, the face broadens Into a wide grin, and soon hearty laughter is heard at this most facetious and side splitting Joke." Ctilcago Nws.

"Havana and all of Cuba which I saw while there," Dr. Thomas Darlington, of the health department, said, "may be called a paradise, not alone in physical beauty, in the urban perfection of the cities or the suburban beauties of villas, streets and conformation of the land scape, but also in the cleanliness of the whole. I could not say too much in praise of the sanitary arrangements in Havana, in Cienfuegos and other places I visited. It was the same ev erywhere, the acme of precaution against disease." Dr. Darlington spent his vacation in Cuba. He came back a little over a week ago, and during his two weeks' visit there studied san itary conditions and learned the sim ple story of the methods which have transformed a yellow fever ridden community into one of the most healthful places in the western hemis phere. It was summed up in one word: cleanliness. It all seemed so simple by the officers of the United States army quartered in that particu lar place to preserve order and inci dentally to conserve health. "Most of my time wf.s spent in looking over the sanitary condition of Havana," Dr. Darlington told a reporter. "I went there, to be sure, on a vacation. But when I saw the place my interest was at once aroused. Free From Every Disease. "I wanted to know how it had been possible to transform a fever-ridden place Into a practical paradise, free from fever, free from every adverse thing, so far as human comfort and health was concerned." Major Jef ferson Randolph Kean, the sanitary adviser of Governor Magoon, took Dr. Darlington in hand, and the health commissioner of this city was kept busy looking over the sanitary ar rangements that have been such a sue cess. An automobile was placed at Dr Darlington's disposal, and he said that he might as well have been on the best roads in this city or West hcester county, for the conditions there were not inferior. The doctor said: "With Major Kean and Major Birmingham I went to Camp Colum bia, where the main force of American troops are quartered. The whole camp was in splendid sanitary condition. "With Col. Pitcher, who was in com mand, I made an inspection of the grounds and the men's quarters. I tried to find something to criticise, but simply couldn't. Everything was in perfect shape. The buildings were all freshly whitewashed, there were nets over all the beds, and the total ab sence of flies especially attracted my attention. Drainage, drainage and more drainage has almost abolished the mosquito and the perfection of the tttftwtnfa .MfOT4 works' and the daily cleaning of the streets in the cities and camps have done much to kill off the fly. I went to Guanajay with Major Birmingham and Major Patrick. This is a temporary camp, but the tents were Immaculate, and, as at Camp Columbia, the food was excellent, and provided with attention to the hygienic in diet. The water supply in this camp, as at Camp Co lumbia, is pure, and in each place they use incinerators in disposing of the sewage. Soldiers Never Idle. "The soldiers are never idle. The ranges are near this camp and there is daily target practice. Too much can not be said in praise of Major Kean and his aids, the board of health and Colonel Grebel in the success that has attended their efforts for sani tary reform in Havana. It was car nival time when I was there, and at night the main thoroughfares were littered with paper, scraps of food and confetti; but the next morning everything had been removed. It was this way day after day while the car nival lasted. The American army re gime has killed the designation of 'manana land.' as applied to Cuba. Nothing in the way of public sanitary work or army duties is postponed un til the next day. No Yellow Fever There. "There is no yellow fever in Cuba at present. I do not think that it is to be feared, as the authorities have the situation well in hand, and nothing could have been more thorough than the mosquito elimination. I visited Cienfuegos and the American camp there. This was the yellow fever dis trict. I had many pleasant talks with Captain Warren Dean, in charge. In the camps I quickly learned that all the milk used was pasteurized. I also learned that there was no tuberculosis among the cattle. This is due to the fact that the cattle are always out of doors. We find here that tuberculosis prevails among the cows in increasing proportion as we go northward, and this is due to housing the cattle. Until recently no attention whatever was paid-to hygiene in their housing. With Major Slocum. who has charge of the rurales, I went to Vento, where the water supply of the capital city is se cured. The water supply was remark ably clear, the bottom of the reser voir, thirty feet below, being as clear ly visible as the short. An analysis has shown that the water is absolutely pure."

The agrarian agita tion at Parma, Italy, Is likely to re sult In a conflict of a serious charao' ter. The question Is not one of wag es, but of the right to hold land as property, at least so it is understood by the proprietors, who declare that they dare not make any concessions la a fight which involves their very ex-J istence. The movement has already i reached formidable dimensions; the number of strikers is said to be 4O,0, with the possibility of extension to other districts, while the townspeople of Parma, manufacturers and others,' who are making common rauso with the landed proprietors, threaten a lock-, out should their employes proclaim a general strike in sympathy with ths other party. Both sides have bee a preparing for a struggle for some timt past, so that It is likely to b obsti nate. r-- A Mistake. An old gentleman of eighty having taken to the altar a young damsel of fifteen, the clergyman said to him: "The font is at the other end of the Church." "What do I want -with the font?" said the old gentleman. "Oh, I beg your pardon," said the clerical wit. "I thought you had brought this child to be christened." London Tit-Bits. Tw Wam.n.

"Well, I must hurry to get my car,", said the first woman, brealtana: away. ' "And I promised to be home at 2 o'clock, and it's half past now," said the other. Then the first woman went into the drug store sod got a chocolate cream, and the other tripped around the cor ner to the matinee. Kansas City Times. Stop Indigestion It is unnecessary. All the food that you eat can be digested, and should be. Kodol will always do it. No need of the pain, the gas and the poison that come from undigested food. Note our guarantee. So long as you suffer the pains of Indigestion, you are making a cure of the stomach impossible. Undigested food forms hard lumps in the stom ach. It irritates the stomach lining. And neither Nature nor drugs can remedy the trouble while that irritation exists. When the stomach fails to digest all of the food. It must be helped out. That is essential. Aid it and rest it, for there is no other way to recupera tion. Don't do this by dieting not by starvation. For strength comes only through nourishment, and you need all you can get. Do it by digesting the food, for a little time, with Kodol. No other product contains all the elements needed for perfect digestion. We have proved this in countless laboratory tests. There is no other aid ever made for the stomach which will completely digest any combination of foods. A little Kodol taken after a meal will digest it, no matter what the meal consists of. There is no cure for Dyspepsia, and yon don't need one. The stomach must cure itself. Tonics and stimulants may spur the stomach to action. But any weak organ is only injured by forcing. The right way is to help out the stomach, as you would help out a lame foot. Stop the irritation, Etop the formation of gas. Stop the pain. You will be astonished, we think, to see how quickly the stomach recovers. There are, In these days, many aids to digestion. But they are only aids. Pepsin, for instance, digests only albumen. It aids only to this extent. But a very large part of your food is starch, and another large part is fat. They must be digested, too. Complete relief requires a product that digests U tw-nrfq ciL lrv onil K rwlnl alnne. rar flO that, Another fact is that the action of Kodol Is it stant. It is put up in liquid form, as It must be. All of the elements needod for digestion cannot be put up otherwise. Being liquid, like the digestive Juices, the action of Kodol begins as soon as It reaches the stom ach. There is no delay, as there always is where a remedy needs to dissolve. And Kodol does all that is necessary, white other digesters do scarcely half. It ess sea com plete digestion. and that means complete relief, There 13 no other way to attain it. Our Guarantee We ask you to prove, at our risk, that the facta are as we state them. Buy a large bottle of Kodol, and ask your druggist for the signed guar antee. If you are not satisfied, take the empty bottle back with the warrant, and your druggist will return your money. There will be no qulbbl or question. This offer applies to the large bottles only, and to but one In a family. That is sufficient to prove. Then please tell others how much Kodol does. Kodol is prepared at the laboratories of E. OL DeWitt & Co., Chicago. The $1.00 bottle contains 3U, time mnrh as the ROc hntfla. .
