TT76 Through Your Blood to Rheumatism The only way to get at Rheuma tism is by the way it came. Rheumatism and kindred diseases re tvh from a common cause. It took the medical' profession nineteen centuries to discover that the cause of this dreaded and painful disease is an excess of Uric acid! Once Uric acid is in the system, Rheumatism, Lumbago, Neuralgia, Sciatica follow in its wake. You must pt t it out of the blood to get rid of these diseases. Athlophoros is the only scientific remedy that cures all forms of disease resulting from an excess of Uric acid. It is the only specific that dissolves and removes the cause! The wonder ful success it has had is due to the fact that it , is the one medicine that cures by removing. Our treatise.

H. Moore Railroad Notes. Chicago, 111., October 5. Lenor Fresnell Loree, the highest-salaried railroad man in the world, suddenly resigned today as the executive head of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pa cific railway company and chairman of the Frisco executive committee. His retirement came at the conclusion of a series of stormy sessions with the owners of the Rock Island prop erties lasting through an entire week, and at which radical differences re garding policies developed and failed of adjustment. Mr. Loree 's resignation came as a sensational surprise to the railroad world. Nine months age lie v71s in duced to leave the presidency of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad by the payment of a cash bonus of $500,000 and a five year contract insuring him an additional salary of $7o,000. This contract, so liberal in its terms as to be almost bevond credit, provided that in tlie event of his leaving, the service of the Rock Island, his sal ary should . continue, daring the life of the conraet, and that in the event of his death his widow should con tinue to receive it. Within less than one year after the signing of this contract his retire ment was practically forced under a charge that he. had disorganized the property instead or organizing it, and had failed in accomplishment of the Moores' purpose to f wield their railroad properties into one homoge neous system of tremendous tonnage possibilities. At the conferences, which were attended by William II. and James H. Moore, D. (1. Reid, chairman of the Rock Island board; Robert Mather, vice-president and general counsel of the road; Mr. Lo ree and B. F. "Winchtell, president of the Rock Island railway company, Mr. Loree was plainly told that his methods were in disfavor, and, in the opinion of the owners of the proper ty, not such as were calculated, to bring about desired results. The battle, if battle it may be call ed, was largely between L. F. Loree, supreme executive head of the Rock Island systm. and B. F. Winchtell, president of the Rock Island Railway whose methods and policies have been opposed from the beginning. The policy outlined and advocated by Mr. Winchtell won the day, and hereafter he will be the sole executive head of the system, wth supreme power, sub ordinate only to the owners. The positions which Mr. Loree re signed are: President of the Rock Tsland company of New Jersey, the holding company for Rock Island system securities; director of the same company, chairman of the exec utive committee of the Chicago, Rock Tsland and Pacific railway company, director of the same company and chairman of the executive commit tee of the St. Louis and San Fran cisco railroad company. To succeed him in the later position B. F. Yoa kum, former president of the Frisco and chairman of the board, was el ected at joint meetings of the vari ous companies, held subsequent to Mr Loree 's resirnation. Robert Mather was elected presi dent and director of the Rock Is land, company of New -Jersey, direc tor of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific railway company and chair man of the board of the same com pany. As successor to Mr. Lorse. however, Mr. Mather will not have the powers which the . Moores, Mr. Reid and W. B. Leeds delegated to Mr. Loree. It is understood that fol lowing the recent annual report of the Rock Island disclosing a decrease Ml JJft in net earnings far greater than any other Western sj-stem, the Moore Brothers and their associates began an investigation at Chicago to discov er the reasons. They are said to have found "conditions which were highly displeasing. It is said Mr. Loree 's failure to gain the approval of the Moores yndicate was due largely to the fact that he applied Eastern railroad methods to a West em system, where conditions are to tally different. D. G. Reid Elected. Chicago, II., October 5. At the annual meeting of the Chicago & Al ton railroad held here today J. H. Moore, D. G. Reid and Robert Mather were electied directors in place of F. F. Winston, C. H. Chappell and Mor timer L. Schiff. The meeting was en tirely harmonious. The new directors were chosen by unanimous vote. Their election brought out the fact that the Rock Island interests, of which the new di rectors are 'representatives, came into the meeting with a voting strength of 355,000 shares out of a total of 3S0,000 shares. J. II. Moore stated after the elec tion that the road would be operated in harmony with the present man agement and that no change in the executive staff would be made during this year, at least. There was but one objection to the proceedings. A shareholder, Julius A. Johnson, who owns 100 shares of the common stock, objected to the passing of a resolution sanctioning the work of the executive committee and the directors during the past year. Th!e report of the Alton for the year ended Jundte 30, 1904, gives the gross receipts as $11,425,S53, an in crease of $3,354,701, operating ex penses, ;t,o24,oou; increase, $yy,- 404; net receipts, $3901,253, an in crease of $455,356. There is more Catarrh in this section of the country than all oth er diseases put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. For a, great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incur able. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and there fore requires constitutional treat ment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufac tured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O., is the only constitutional cure on the market. It is taken internally in doeses from 10 drops to a teaspoonf ul It acts directly on the blood and mu cous surfaces of the system. They offer one hundred dollars for any case it fails to cure. Send for circulars and testimonials. Address, J. F. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O. Sold by druggists 75c. Hall's Familv Pills are the best FUR DISPLAY AT NUSBAH'S Furs of every description, in the Avest show window of Lee B. Nus baum's new store, makes what is ad mittedly the finest display of the kind ever made in Richmond. The window is attracting universal at tention, not only from the ladies whose, admiration is expressed for the elegant garments, but from men who envy the furrier his ability at having secured such prizes as the natural skins in the exhibition. There are represented in the win dow lynx, mink, Isabelle fox, natural brown fox, red fox and wolf skins, from which neckpieces and muffs are ordered. 'Jackets of electric seal, near seal and natural seal, otter and Krimmer form perhaps the most at tractive feature of the display. Sie bring squirrel skins hang, artistically arranged from the top of the win dow. Of an exceptionally pretty and costly nature, a neckpiece and muff of mink, trimmed with ermine, and a chinchilla collar piece, have receiv ed the favorable observations of hundreds who have crowded the store entrance to see the fur display. The Avindow is an artistic treat, and is well worth the time and atten tion of not only ladies -who wish to secure elegant garments, but those interested in nature studv .

In Richmond, Roosevelt campaign buttons are selling at the ratio of about four to caie more than the Parker buttons. One peculiar thing about the Parker buttons is that they are finished in gold. This is a great surprise to a number of staunch silver Democrats, likewise a shoek, and a number of them are an Ty about the matter as thev do not think it is right to have gold so con spicuously dislayed about the face of their leader. Local dealers say that the effect' of displaying these buttons to a dyed-in-the-wool Silverite is the same as putting a red blanket before the eyes of a bull. ROB TWO MEN One Made to Endorse Check Found On His Person. St. Louis, October G. Louis E. Martin, of 372S Cora avenue "report ed to the police yesterday that he had been held up at the point of re volvers by two men a short distance west of Delmar Garden yesterday morning.

He was forced to indorse the check in the presence of the men, he stated. He was left car fare to" the city and was made to board a pass ing car, being threatened with death if he made an outcry before he had arrived innside the city limits. Laura P. Leverett, a visit'or rrom McCallium, Miss., lost his money in a similar manner yesterday. He ar rived at Union Station in the morn ing and in searching for a rooming house, met a stranger, who enticed him to Delmar Garden.
