Nominee Urged to De
liver Address Be
fore Saturday, But
He Ref wses, Report
NEW YORK, Oct. 10.-4^—Gover
nor Smith starts tonight on a trip
to the southland and its border
states ending with a speech Satur
day night at Louisville.
Reports were prevalent that Chair
man Raskob wanted the democratic
presidential nominee to make at
least one speech before reaching
Kentucky Saturday morning, but it
was doubtful whether he could per
suade him to do so.
As the schedule now stands, the
governor will make only rear plat
form appearances tomorrow and to
morrow night at Richmond, Va., and
Raleigh, Greensboro. Salisbury and
Charlot’e, N. C., and devote Friday
to receptions and conferences witn
prominent democrats at Chattanooga
*nd Nashville, Tenn.
Only One Address
The governor left Albany intend
ing to make only one address this
week and it is believed by those
* close to him that he will stick to
that plan, although he may address
a few informal words of greeting to
well-wishers along the route to Ten
The governor arrived in New York
yesterday from Albany at 4:30 p. r.i.
Soon afterward he greeted Frank
lin D* Roosevelt, democratic nominee
for governor of New York, whose
headquarters are in the same hotel
and talked over plans for the cam
paign in this state. Mr. Roosevelt,
who placed Governor Smith in nom
ination at Houston, probably will be
depended upon to campaign up-state
for the national as well as the stat-*
ticket, since the presidential candi
date s present plans call for only two
speeches in New York—in Brooklyn
and New York City—the Friday and
Saturday nights before election.
Kaps Hoover
On hi.* way down the Hudson, the
presidential nominee took a few
shots at Herbert Hoover and Senator
Curtis in connection with their
Muscle Shoals and tariff statements
and indicated he might discuss the
tariff at Louisville.
Asked whether he had read Mr.
Hoover’s statement that he favored
continued government ownership of
Muscle Shoals, the governor said he
had not, but sought further enlight
enment as to what was said about
who would operate the plant. He
was informed that this angle was
not touched upon.

Texas Ranges In
Good Condition,
U. S. Report Says
AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 10.—(fp—
The condition of Texas livestock
ranges on October 1 was 89 per cent
compared with 86 a month ago and
also 86 per cent, the average for the
last five years, says the United
States department of agriculture, di
vision of livestock estimates, in a
statement today.
Although ranges deteriorated
somewhat in the northeast, north
west and west-center, they have
shown improvement in other dis
tricts, the statement continues.
In the west ranges are in better
condition than for many years, be
ing recorded at 105 per cent. Grass
and weeds have greened up again in
many areas, and if favored by a lata
frost date, mill assure excellent win

PRAGUE. Czechoslovakia. Oct. 10.
—UP)—Piteous appeals for help com
ing today from the debris of an
eight-story stone office building

Kansu Province Con
flict Continuing;
200,000 Dead
SHANGHAI. Oct. 10.—<&)— Civil
warfare after a Mohammedan upris
ing in Kansu Province, which was
stated to have claimed more than
200.000 lives, was believed to be con
tinuing in the western Chinese pro
In addition to the ravages of civil
warfare the area was stated in ad
vices from missions to be suffering
from an intense famine. This had
been aggravated by the fi-hting a*id
the advices said that half the pop
ulation of the provjnce was liable
to die during the coming winter.
(The Inst estimate of the popula
tion of Kansu, compiled by the Chin
ese nost office in 1923, is 5.927,997).
Serious conflicts between the Kan
su Mohammedans and troops of Gen
eral Fen- Yu-H'innc. who claims tho
overlordshin of the province, caused
chaotic conditions. Detailed infor
mation was not available in Shan
hai. but a letter from the China in
land mission headquarters at Lan
chowfu. capital of Kansu, dated Aug
ust 1 stated that acute troubles
started last spring. At that time
armed Mohammedan bands began
raiding villages throughout central
Kansu, robbing and slaying the in
habitants who were unable to offer
effective resistance.
This situation caused General
Ferg to dispatch an army corps from
Honan province to Kansu in an at
tempt to subjugate the Mohamme
dans. These forces, however, were
defeated and more soldiers were
then poured into Kansu. This re
sulted in civil warfare which was
believed to be continuing although
there have been no reports later
than August.

"That deadly indigestion and gastritis,

constipation poisoning any more.”

Doctor at 83 Found People
Preferred His Prescription
The basis of treating sickness hss
not changed since Dr. Caldwell left
Medical College in 1875, nor since he
placed on the market the laxative
prescription he had used in his prac
tice, known to druggists and the
public since 1892, as Dr. Caldwell’s
Syrup Pepsin.
Then, the treatment of constipa
tion, biliousness, headaches, mental
depression, indigestion, sour stom
acn and other indispositions that
result from constipation was en
tirely by means of simple vegetable
laxatives, herbs and roots. These are
still the basis of Dr. Caldwell’s
Syrup Pepsin, which is a combina
tion of senna and other mild laxa
tive herbs, with pepsin.
Dr. Caldwell did not approve of
drastic physics and purges. He did
not believe they were good for hu
man beings to put into their system.
