NIXON OF THIS CITY WAS ILL SEVERAL WEEKS. Despondent over ill health not per mitting him to attend to business mat ters and on the eve of a vacation trip of a few days with O. S. Nixon of this city in the tatter's automobile, Maur ice Lance, the Chicago attorney who was buried in Earlham cemetery on Monday afternoon, ended his life by asphyxiation about noon, Friday. Lange had been ill for .several weeks and hud returned to Chicago hut a few days before he committed the act from a visit with friends and relatives In this city. Ills wire had not accompanied him home but had arranged to meet him on Friday even ing and for him to accompany her. with her brother. O. 8. Nixon and his family in Nixon's automobile to Mil waukee and other points of Interest In Wisconsin. He, It seems, bad made all prepara tions for the trip, and even had his suit case packed for an early start on Saturday morning. The automobile party was delayed in reaching Chi cago for about a half day by the bursting of a tire. Before their arriv al Lange went, to hia bed room and turned on the gas. He had been dead for pome time when found by bis rel atives. The body was brought to this city ror ouriai on eunaay morning, u waa taken to the home of his brother-in-law O. 8. Nixon. 104 North Six teenth street. Funeral services were held there at 3: SO o'clock thla after noon and burial was In Earlham ceme tery. The decedent Is survived by his widow and a four-year-old child and several more distant relatives who live In this city. He was about forty five years old. He was one of the leading attorneys In Chicago and the fact that he was unable to attend to hit work la thought to hare been the causa of his despondency.

KBnennmnioMc Poison Rheuma Orivea It from the System and Cures Rheumatism. Kver aince Leo H. Fihe secured the privilege of handling Rheuma In Rich mond, the sales have been very large. This Is due to the fact that Rheuma really does cure Rheumatism, and that It Is guaranteed to cure Rheumatism or money back. It's a quick acting remedy, too. You don't have to wait a long while for results, for Rheuma starts at once to act on the kidneys, liver, bowels and blood, and before 24 hours the poison ous Uric Acid, which causes Rheuma tism, baa legun to pass out of the body through the regular channels.

Stray Topics Gathered From the Qay American Metropolis (American New Service) New' York, Oct. 17. According to the latest official figures the total York state is 19,821.620,555. Of this quite respectable sum New York City has $7,042,339,104, leaving for the rest of the state only $2,779,281,451. New York county containing the bor oughs of Manhattan and the Bronx, has real and personal property of the value of $5,262,388,703. The Increase In the value of taxable property in New York City has been enormous since 1870, when the total was a lit tle below the billion mark. The an nexation of territory In creating what Is known as Greater New 'York, ac counts to some extent for the phe nomenal increase in values, but the natural growth In itself waa tremen dous. In 1880 the total value waa $2,637,869,238; In 1890, $3,683,653,162; In 1900, $5,461,302,752; In 1909, $9, 666,118,618. It is only natural that in a state of the enormous population and the fabulous wealth of which. New York can boast, all statistical figures 'are upon a large scale. An example is furnished by the figures concerning the number of Insane persons In the state of New York and the cost to the state of "providing for their care and maintenance. The latest statistics show that there are 30,490 Insane per sons In the various state hospitals of private hospitals and 1,127 .Inmates of the two hospitals for the criminal Insane. The twenty-three private hospitals have In all only 1,049 pa tients. The total amounts to a little more than 31.500, enough to populate a good sized city of the third class. The figures, although official, are by no means complete, however, as there are many thousands of lunatics in New York City and In other parts of the state, who are not confined in any public or private hospital. Only year ago a certain authority on dis- ses of the mind made the state- ent that in New York City alone ere were at least 100,000 persons of nsound mind, who should be placed nder medical care. Cynics are ln- Ilned to consider this estimate as al- gether too conservative. There seems to be no longer any ubt that the ambitious plan of nning the Hudson river by a mag- ificent bridge, connecting New York lty with the Jersey side of the river will have to be abandoned. The ex perts who have been making trial borings on both sides of the river have given out the statement that the plan of building a bridge within the limits of Greater New York Is un feasible,' owing to the fact that bed rock upon which the foundations of the bridge must necessarily rest, can not be reached at less than 150 feet from the surface. If the bridge plan has to be abandoned It Is quite prob able that a plan will be proposed to build a large tunnel under the river. Instead of a bridge over it. A recent decision of Justice Whit ney of the supreme court has caused a rather panicky feeling among hun dreds of men and women who owe their freedom from marital bonds to the accommodating divorce courts of Nevada. Justice Whitney decided the other day that a woman who goes to Nevada for the express purpose of obtaining a divorce and then returns to this state is In New York still the wife of the husband from whom she sought to be divorced. The drought and consequent lack of water In a number of towns and vil lages In the vicinity of New York City have driven hundreds of suburbanites to New York and hotels are crowd ed with families who prefer the com forts of an expensive hotel to the die comforts of a considerable less ex pensive, but - waterless and bathless home. An incident at the aristocratic hotel Knickerbocker the other day is char acteristic of the amallneaa and stlngl- a r 7t Michael Mordkin r'-. & j a. t i , a ' s. , i - . r i -' J i ; $k: M v4 ness of some of the wealthy society women. A maid at the hotel mention- ! ed found three rings upon the wash- stand of the women's dressing room the other day and promptly deliver ed them to the hotel office. An hour later a richly dressed and greatly ex cited woman came to the office and inquired whether three rings' worth about $1,000, , which she bad left in the dressing room had been found. She gave a description of the rings and the maid was called to explain where got them. The owner of the lings Identified her property and handed the maid a whole fifty-cent piece. The manager of the hotel was disgusted with the meanness of the rich woman and right before her eyes handed the honest maid a $10-bill as a mark of appreciation. The woman with the rings did not even blush. There is a prospect that the erec tion of the proposed $5,000,000 hotel to be built on the McAlpin block in cluding the entire east side of Broad way between Thirty-third and Thirty fourth streets, will be delayed for some time, unless the Greeley Square hotel company, which intends to build the hotel can induce the Mutual bank which occupies one of the buildings in that block to abandon Its lease which haa a year and a half longer to run. The officials of the bank seem determined not to give up their lease as their own building, now In course of erection, will not be completed un til a short time before the expiration of the lease upon their present prem ises. In one of the Brooklyn department stores a woman was arrested the oth er day for stealing a belt buckle val ued at 45 cents. The prisoner, who was well dressed apparently belong ed to the wealthy class, had a pass book in her possession, showing large deposits In one of the Brooklyn banks. The woman, who denied any intention of stealing the buckle was neverthe less, held for a hearing. Another victim of kleptomania. Justice Newberger of the supreme court, the other day denied an appli cation to punish a judgment debtor for contempt of court for spending $20 for cigars and beer after he had been restrained from spending any money except for necessities until the Judg ment was paid. The ruling of the court is generally interpreted as tacit ly recognizing beer and cigars as ne cessities and smokers and beer con sumers are hlghlyOfcated over this ruling of Justice Newberger, which they consider as perfectly just and sensible in every respect. PROBE INTO FRAUDS (American News Service.) Norfolk. Va, Oct. 17. Some new and startling developments are pre dicted in the investigation begun by the grand jury today into the alleged frauds In connection with the recent primary election in the second con gressional district. : As a result of the disclosures already made the demo cratic state committee has declared the primary election to be null and void. It is estimated that six or eight weeks will be consumed in the grand jury investigation as every one of the 3.700 who were returned as having voted has been summoned to testify. nn ItlKQXQ Sarsaparilla Cures all blood humors, all eruptions, dears the complex ion, creates an appetite, aids digestion, relieves that tired feeling, gives vigor and vim.

Declaring that the diversion of American emigration into Canada back into the United States, and the establishment ' of a National Board of Health were among the paramount issues in the platform of progressive nationalism, and that the fortification of the Panama Canal was absolutely essential to peaceful occupancy of the new trade route of the world. M. B. Trezevant, of New Orleans. president of the Southern Commercial Secretaries association, made a profound impression in an address on "The New South," deliver ed before the convention of the Cen tral Association of Commercial Ex ecutives here. "In five years time." said President Trezevant. "tlie United States has lost 350,000 of her best citizens to Can ada residents, principally of this Central West, carrying with them in telligence, experience and money in to a foreign country, the lure of which is but ephemeral, while the vast un tenanted acres of the United States are open to them. If they must leave at all. let them go. not to an alien north, where the winters are long and unproductive, and the summer heat nearly as torrid as at the equa tor, but to the south, where land is cheap and soil is rich and cultivable twelve months of the year; where the climate is equible and the health is equal to if not better than in any giv en section of the United States." In this latter connection Mr. Treze vant urged the- establishment of a National Board of Health. "No sec tion than the south has suffered more and deserved it less, by the totally false impressions of her health and climate, due to lack of information," he said. "For that reason the south will ask for a national supervision of health, just as, five years ago, it de manded and secured national control of quarantine. And what will help the south will help every other sec tion of the Union. That the south is healthy and desirable from an invest ment and settlement standpoint is demonstrated by the millions of dol lars and thousands of settlers jiow making their way thither. Louisiana is a striking example. Foreign invest ment capital is not taxed in that state and today hundreds of thousands of dollars are being poured into the com monwealth from . Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and other sec tions, largely for the most profitable of all investments the reclamation of wet prairies. These deep and hith erto unused soils are now producing corn the crop of the northwest bearing 40 to 60 bushels, to an acre on land that cost from $25 to $75 per acre. Today the nln cotton-growing states of the south are producing more corn than Wisconsin, Michigan, Min nesota, South Dakota, Kansas, Colo rado and Pennsylvania. ."Those of the northwest who are sufficiently interested to know more of this great work of reclamation can find practical information at the forth coming United Spates Land and Irri gation congress, in Chicago, November 19 to December 4." . In speaking of the fortification of the Panama Canal, he said the admin istration policy should be upheld by every Joyal American. "A .few weeks ago I saw that great work for the sec ond time, and it would fire the heart and Imagination of any red-blooded American to observe the vim, the de termination, the intensely patriotic enthusiasm of the men on the Job from highest to lowest. It is Billy twaddle to say that the United States must build the canal and then observe no means of preventing it falling into alien or hostile hands. Not only the patriotism, but the cold commercial sense of the nation demands U, and that it will be done is beyond ques tion." New Orleans, he said, is preparing for the greatest demonstration of modern America in celebration of the opening of the canal. "The World's Panama Exposition will be held at $100.

TUESDAY EVENING, OCT 18TH, EIGHT O'CLOCK, AT COLISEUM, Grand Entertainment lasting almost 2 hours, the entire picture films consisting of 6000 feet taken at Reno, Nevada, July 4th, 1910. Tick ' ets on sale at Simmons" Cigar Store, price of admission, 25c, 35c, 50c No extra charge for reserved seats; part of "one section will be re served for ladies, New Orleans, the logical point," he said; "the city which not only is near, er in miles, but in trade and personal affinity with the Central and ' South j Americas. In this - great enterprise J the Central WTest plays a most irnpor- j tant part. Thirty-four states drain their waters into the Mississippi river ; which flows by New Orleans into the. Gulf of Mexico. When the nation j shall have realized that water-borne j commerce will eventually dominate the routing and charge for . freight, the huge west will send her manufac tured products down the big' Mississip pi and through the Panama Canal, and so to the vast, untouched consuming markets of the Central and South Am ericas, and the far East. At the next session of congress the location for the Panama exposition will be decid ed between New Orleans and San Francisco. New Orleans is 500 miles from the center of population. San Francisco is 2.500 miles from the same point' There are 65.000,000 people within one day's travel of New Or leans. There are only 6,000,000 peo ple within the same distance from San Francisco. The New South looks to the big Central West for support in her fight for what is her's by right of logic and natural selection. Our interests are mutual. San Francisco is separated by 2,500 miles from the commercial center of the United States, by mountain, plain and desert land, and is 3.400 miles from Panama. New Orleans is 1,300 mlies from Pan ama and 1,000 miles from the Great Lakes. San Francisco is striving for an advertising asset of benefit to herself alone. New Orleans is striving for an investment that will pay divi dends to the whole nation. If you were going to Panama, would you travel 2,500 miles to San Francisco and 3,400 miles to the Isthmus; or travel 1,000 miles New Orleans and 1,300-miles to the Canal zone? The force of logic is with New Orleans. The whole south is united on us, and the Central West we confidently count upon as a friend who has a like inter est at stake." ' At Local Theaters Grahame Stock Co. The Grahame Stock Company In tends to change Ihe bill each night at the Gennett theater this week and will give a daily matinee starting on Tues day. Tonight the play will be "The Two Orphans." This has not been seen in Richmond for so long that the theater-going people have almost forgot ten the standard old work which was the greatest success which New York had ever had when it was first pro duced there some years ago with a cast which has been quoted as one of the finest ever seen. , Kitty Blanchard, Charley Thorne, Maurice Barrymore were all names to conjure with; and their performance is still spoken of as one of the best ever witnessed in New York. But after all it was the play that made the success, a greater cast even than that has been seen and yet the play has been a failure. Not so with "The Two Orphans"; it has lived throughout the years and its drawing power is still worth a good deal, for the plot while simple. Is yet enthrall ing and the action quick enough to hold one during the entire play. Pavlowa. The New York mounted police are a source of neverending interest to the Russian dancers- who arrived from St. Petersburg with Pavlowa and Mordkin the other day to introduce "visual tpera" in America. A group of the newcomers from the land of the "Little Father" found themselves unable to restrain their curiosity the other day and surrounded one of the policemen, gesticulating wildly and talking to him In chorus. Unable to understand them and thinking the foreigners were lost, are over 300 u. m vnea i strayed, stolen or in some worse trouble, the policeman rounded up the entire bunch and herded them to the West Forty-6eventi street police sta tion, where an Interpreter was secur ed. . "What's the trouble; who has rob bed you?" demanded that dignitary. "No one," responded the Muscovites in, chorus. "We couldn't help looking at such a funny Cossack!" When the interpreter made known the answer, the assembled detectives and patrolmen, alert to start on a man hunt, burst into a fit of laughter. The mounted "cop" gladly paid the price of silence vodka for all hands but the story leaked out Just the same and is now the scream of Broad way. Interest is growing every day in the forthcoming appearance at the Gen nett theater on October SStx of the Imperial Ballet with Pavlowa and Mordkin. The seats will be placed on sale a week ahead, opening next Fri day, October 21. at ten o'clock. STATE HONORS . (American News Service.) Houston, Tex.. Oct, 17.
