PACE THREE. A MISSISSIPPI JNTIIUSIAST Mrs.' Lena Gresham, or Clinton, Miss., Has a Few Facts to Tell Our Readers About Cardui. Clinton, Miss. "Thanks to Cardui," writes Mrs. Lena Gresham, of this place, 'I have been greatly relieved." "I suffered for three vears from female inflammation, and had taken medicine from four different physicians without much benefit. "I have received more benefit from seven bottles of Cardui, than from all the physicians." Just try Cardui. That's all we ask. It speaks for itself. It has helped so many thousands, it must be able to help you. Trying Cardui won't hurt you. It is safe, harmless, gentle in action, and purely vegetable. If you are weak, tired, down and out, try Cardui. If you are sick, miserable, and suffer from womanly pains, like headache, backache, dragging feelings; pains in side, arms, legs, etc. try Cardut. It is the medicine for all women. It is the tonic for you. N. B. Write tor Ladies" Advisor Dept.. Chah. ftooea Medicine Co.. Chattanooga. Tenn.. Iot Special instruction, and 64-page book.

That is what every one is asking every one else these days, for her wonderful gift is attracting ever increasing crowds to the Gennett Theater this week. And It is a gift, there is no question of that; people all proclaim it a trick, a clever one perhaps, but still a trick, but when they have seen friends ask her per sonal questions, and have heard Miss May, not only read the question (with the paper tightly folded in the friend's lap) but answer it correctly well their last doubt is removed. "Fluffy Ruffles." The trials of Miss Fluffy Ruffles to keep any position which she secures without having all the men n the of fice fall in love with her, are most amusingly set forth in the new comic opera which is to be seen at the Gen nett Theater on Thursday, Feb. 17th, with dainty little Florence Gear in the title role. "Gentleman from Mississippi" The story of "A Gentleman from Mississippi is that of a big true hearted Senator, who is entirely ig norant of political intrigues and yet finds himself in the midst of it all at the National Capitol, and so places himself in the hands of a young News paper man who pulls him through it all without a scratch. Burr Mcintosh in the Title role gives an impersona tion which is at all times a clear cut type of a big bluff good natured Mis eissippian, while Will Deming as the irrepressible young Secretary, is at all times quite captivating with his broeziness. At the Murray. The big bill at the Murray theater this week is proving a fine drawing card for Richmond's popular play house. Comedy, singing, dancing and good music are all well rendered and received in a hearty manner by the ap preciative audiences. At the Coliseum. All the sporting fans are expecting to attend the big wrestling and boxing tournament at the Coliseum tonight, because they know that a big bill has been prepared of the best talent in these lines. An aching back is instantly relieved by an application of Sloan's Liniment. This liniment takes the place of massage and is better than sticky plasters. It penetrates without rubbing through the skin and muscular tissue right to the bone, quickens the blood, relieves congestion, and gives permanent as well as x temporary relief. Here's the Proof. Mr. .Iambs C. I-ke, of 1100 9th St., 8.E.,WMhiiigtn, p.c. writes : "Thirty years ago 1 fell from i scaffoM ami seri ously injured my bitck. I suffered terri bly at time ; from the small of my back 11 around my stomach was just as if I had been beaten with a club. 1 used erery plaster I could sret with no relief. Sloan's Liniment took the pain right out, and I can now do as much ladder work as any man In the shop, thanks to Sloans Liniment Mr. J. P. Evass, of Mt. Alrv, G., says: "After bring afflicted for three years with rheumatism, I used Sloan's Liniment, and was eured sound and well, and am glad to sar 1 haren't been, troubled with rheumatism since. My leg was badly swollen from uiy hip to my knee. Ono-balf a bottle took the pul n aud swelling out." Sloan's Liniment has no equal as a remedy for Rheu matism, Neuralgia or any pain or stiffness in the muscles or joints. Mew, 25c.

PREACHER MAKES DENIAL CHILD'S FOSTER MOTHER KNEW OF FACTS BUT SAYS THAT SHE FEARED TO EXPOSE MAN BE CAUSE OF HIS THREATS. Piqua, O., Feb. 9. A sensation was caused here when it became known that the Rev. James Thomas, a Chris tian minister, whose home is in Mar ion, Ind., but who had been located in charge of a gospel mission for several months in Piqua, was wanted upon a charge of assault upon little Ruth Rumple, 7 years old, the adopted daughter of Mrs. Jennie S. Rumple. The little child had been adopted when an infant from a Cincinnati chil dren's home and it was an anonymous letter, to the home that brought R. F. Longman, one of its visitors, to Piqua to investigate the charge and to de velop the fact, after examinations by surgeons, that the girl had been as saulted, not merely once, but repeated ly. Mrs. Rumple, when confronted with the fact, admitted that she knew about it, but said she was afraid of Thomas, who, it appears, had threatened her, after asking her to marry him. Thomas, suspecting trouble and learning that he was being watched, went to Marion. There he was appre hended and arrested, being brought to Piqua by Chief Gehle last night. He will be prosecuted on a criminal charge. Thomas is more than 60 years old. He has been married twice and has survived both wives. A daughter lives in the West. About twenty-five years ago he was licensed to preach by the Grant County (Indiana) Christian Con ference. This was an independent con ference of several churches in Indiana that were not recognized by the Chris tian conference of the state or by the American Christian conference. It has since disbanded, but Thomas, it seems, has continued to preach. PREACHER DENIES CHARGE. Marion, Ind., Feb. 9. Piqua (O.) officers arrested the Rev. James Thomas yesterday at the home of his sister, Mrs. Sue Ratliff, four miles south of this city, on the charge of assault. The Rev. Mr. Thomas had been staying with his sister for sev eral weeks, but denied that he had come here to hide from the Ohio offi cials. He also denies that he is guilty of any misconduct, as alleged by the authorities who are backing the caso in the defense of Ruth Rumple, 7 years old. The preacher has been in communication with Mrs. Jennie Rum ple, foster mother of the child, since leaving Piqua. He Is a carpenter who has been giving considerable time to preaching in different sections of In diana and Ohio. All who have heard Mr. Ad ams' lecture and have seen the pictures on the Panama Canal say it is simply great and wouldn't have missed it. WINS IN HIS FIGHT Tuberculosis Patient at Hos pital Benefits by Living in a Tent. HIS RECOVERY PROBABLE Frank Neff, who lived In a small room on South Fifth street, and whose life was despaired of because of pulmo nary tuberculosis, until he was taken In charge by charitable organizations and sent to Reid Memorial hospital to live in a teut, is reported to be rapidly improving. He seems to be gaining strength, and the attending physicians say that they notice improved conditions of his lungs. About -his only medicine since becoming a member of the institution has been pure and fresh air. He was taken there last December and lived in the open during the coldest weather this winter. On the very cold nights, he was kept warm by the application of hot water bottles. Another pa tient, sent to the institution by char itable organizations, is also reported as improving, but the improvement does not seem to be as apparent as that of Mr. Neff. East and West.

Now. last year I was out as far as Cleveland and stopped awhile at Pittsburg. I was all around out west" "Ib that so?" said the man from Los Angeles, with a great show of inter est.

View of "the Adirondack Cottage S 2. Sanitariam as it looked twenty-frv 3. Dr. Edward L. Trudeau, founder erf against tuberculosis. (By Phil P. Jacobs.) (Assistant Secretary of the National Association for the Study and Pre vention of Tuberculosis.) A reception and dinner tendered to Dr. Edward L. Trudeau, the founder of the Adirondack Cottage sanitarium and the originator of the American crusade against tuberculosis, early in February marked the end of the twenty-fifth year of this life-saving work. The gathering, which was largely attended by Dr. Trudeau's 'graduates-' was held at the sanitarium. Among the many gifts presented to Dr. Tru deau one of the most unique was a large autograph volumn, containing expressions of appreciation and con gratulation from hundreds of ex-patients. The address made at the reception recall the struggles of Dr. Trudeau, and present one of the strangest chap ters of history that has ever been written, a history full of discourage ments and failures, yet abundantly crowned with success, and, above all, a history that tells of life brought within reach of millions. Thirty-seven years ago, Dr. Tru deau contracted tuberculosis of the lungs just after entering upon what promised to be a brilliant career in medicine. Most of his colleagues and friends gave him up for lost, but re gardless of their warnings, he resolved to spend at least one summer and winter in the Adirondack mountains, living in the open air. On the site where Paul Smith's hotel now stands, in the heart of virgin wilderness, forty-two miles from a railroad and one hundred miles from any center of cul ture, he lived for years. Into this re mote spot there penetrated in 1S83 an account of Koch's discovery of the ?rerm of tuberculosis. Before this hope had been dead, but now a wave of possibilities surged through Dr. Trudeau's mind, and he saw with the imagination of all pioneers what the future, with the identity of the foe at last determined, might hold in store. It; was this clear-sighted vision of the future that started the campaign against tuberculosis in America. The obstacles which Dr. Trudeau had to contend with were well nigh in surmountable and would have discour aged almost any other man. When in 1SSM he began his technical researches following up the discoveries of Dr. Koch in Berlin, he says, "I had from the first, many difficulties to contend with; no health, no scientific training, no apparatus, no access to books, and was situated forty-two miles from a railroad in a primitive forest." In a few short visits which he was able to make to New York he studied the elements of bacteriology. The rest of that highly specialized science, in which he has become an expert and an authority, he taught himself. His laboratory was a small room in his house, and for the purpose of cultivat ing the tubercle baciltis in a pure cul ture, he had to arrange a series ot boxes, one inside of the other, heated with a kerosene lamp and regulated by an improvised thermostat. In this oven, however, he succeeded finally in producing the little red-like germs. The guinea pigs which he used for ex perimental purposes had to be kept in a hole in the ground to keep them from freezing. In order to determine if environ ment had any effect upon the tuber- Don't Wear A Truss After Thirty Years' Experience I Have Produced An Appliance for Men, Women or Children That Cures Rupture.

Dr. Trudeau inoculated a large number of rabbits with his pure culture. Several of those little animals he turned loose on an island in St. Regis lake, and others he lock ed up in a dark cellar and in various unsanitary places. All of the rabbits left in unhealthful surroundings died of tuberculosis vithin three months, while all of those allowed to run wild, recovered. Recalling this classic experiment. Dr. Trudeau says, "The results of this rest-arch increased my confidence in the influence of a favorable environ ment on the course of the 'disease, and confirmed my faith in the value of the sanitarium and open-air method of treating tuberculosis, of which I was then making a practical applica tion." Hardly had the value and usefulness of this rude, homemade laboratory been demonstrated, when one night, while Dr. Trudeau was sick in New York, the lamp of his improvised box oven exploded and burned up his lab oratory, his house and everything he owned. It was here that another lead er in the war against tuberculosis showed his faith in Dr. Trudeau: I am sorry to hear of your misfortune, but take my word for it. there is nothing like a fire to make a man do the Phoenix trick." The next day, through the generosity of George C. Cooper, Mrs. A. A. Anderson, and others, funds were supplied for the erection of a fireproof laboratory, which has become a world-renowned institute of research in tuberculosis. In 1S3. amid the scoffing of most of his friends Dr. Trudeau showed his faith in the open-air movement by starting the Adirondack Cottage Sani tarium for persons who had tubercu losis, but who could not afford to pay more than $5 a week for their treat ment. Dr. Trudeau recognized then what has been so clearly demonstrat ed today, that tuberculosis is a poor man's disease, and that most of the victims of this malady cannot afford to pay full price for their cure. Anson Phelps Stone gave the first contribution of $o00 to the new sanita rium and Francisco Bianchi gave the second of The nucleus of the sanitarium was a little red cottage heated by a wood stove and lighted by an oil lamp, in which Dr. Trudeau him self had taken the cure. Although the institution had a capacity for only nine patients, it was with the greatest difficulty that the beds could be filled. Physicians and laymen alike, looked upon a winter in the open air with the zero temperature of the Adirondacks as little short of suicide. It was only through the constant work of Dr. Al fred L. Loomis, of New York, the founder of the Loomis sanitorium at Liberty, N. Y., that enough patients were finally persuaded to go to Sara nac Lake to fill the little institution; and it is largely through the winning personality and encouragement of Dr. Trudeau. that most of them were per suaded to stay after they arrived. Here was the actual beginning of the cam paign against tuberculosis in Ameri ca. From this little one roomed cot tage have emanated the fires that have kindled a nation, and have aroused millions to action. What a contract the twenty-five years present! Less than a dozen patients were treated by Dr. Trudeau that first year; in 1909 over 11 7,00 tuberculosis patients re ceived treatment and assistance from various sources. Only one institution in 1885 and in 1910 we have 286 sana toria and hospitals, 205 dispensaries and 394 associations, all devoted to the treatment, study and prevention of tu berculosis. The crusade against tu berculosis started with an Investment of a few thousand dollars. Today the Adirondac Cottage Sanitarium is worth more than a million and over $25.CX. OU) is invested in the property of oth er institutions and organizations doing tuberculosis work. The first year of treatment at Dr. Trudeau's original institution cost less than $ 10.no. Last year over $8,000,000 was spent in anti tuberculosis work, and governmental I appropriations alone for 1910 aggre gate $9,000,000, which, with private expenditures, will bring the total sil ver jubilee's tuberculosis fund to be spent this year, up to nearly $ir.., kio. Twenty-five years ago hardly a consumptive was cured of his disease and the death rate was increasing in every civilized country. Today thousands of sanatorium "graduates" go out as cured every year and it is a well known fact that T- per cenr of the incipient cases of tuberculosis can be cured if they are given a chance. When Dr. Trudeau started his work, he was almost alone among those who seriously advocated that tuberculosis could be restricted and prevented. "Tuberculosis is preventable" is today a by-word in millions of American homes. No words can express the contrast better than Dr. Trudeau's own, when he welcomed the International Cou gres son Tuberculosis in Washington a year ago. "For thirty-five years," said he, "I have lived in the midst of a perpetual epidemic, struggling with tuberculosis both within the walls, and no one can appreciate better than I do the great meaning of such a meeting. I have lived through many of the long dark years of ignorance, hopelessness and apathy, when tuberculosis levied ! its pitiless toll on human life unheed ed and unhindered, when, as Jacoud has tersely put it, "The treatment of tuberculosis was but a meditation on death.' But I have lived also to see I the dawn of the new knowledge, to see j the fall of the death rate of tubercu losis, to see hundreds who have been ! rescued, to see whole communities ! crrm inor 1 1 , i f 1 1 1 o ti an1 ll'nman ivli ( ici ...... .llf, llW V.. ..IV..

I have lived to see the spread of the new light from nation to nation until it has encircled the globe and finds expression today in the gathering of the international congress of tubercu losis with all that it means to science, philanthropy and the brotherhood of man."

The mother of little six-year-old Mary had told ber a number of times not to hitch her sled to passing sleighs, feeling that it was a dancerou3 nrac- i tice. It was such a fascinating sport. however, that Mary could not resist it. and one day her mother saw her go skimming past the house behind u farmer's bob. When she came iu from play she was taken to task, her mother saying severely: "Mary, haven't I told you that you must not hitch on to bobs? Besides, it is against the law." Mary tossed her head.

THE GOOD PHYSICIAN'S METHOD It is a small wonder that physicians prescribe an alterative tblood purifier) for so many afflictions, since the blood is so intimately related with every function of the human body. Poisoned, or impure blood, aside from such manifestations as syphilis, catarrh, inflammatory rheumatism, pimples, boils, sores, muddy complex ion, etc., effects the appetitie, the diges tion and the whole human organism. The most powerful and effective al terative known is Dr. A. B. Simpson's Vegeteable Compound, discovered by a famous physician of Indiana and used in his practice more than forty years ago.
