MAJ. RIPLEY'S HORSE
MODEL FOR GREAT STATUE
While San Antonians generally will
be pleased to hear of the success of
Seulptor Pompeo Coppini in having his
statue of Gen. John H. Morgan accept
ed by the Daughters of the Confederacy
of Lexington, Ky., perhaps the most
pleased person in the city is’ Major
Henry L. Ripley of Port Sam Houston,
whose beautiful saddle mare, Elsina,
served as a model for the horse on
which the figure of General Morgan is
mounted.
While the statne of General Morgan
is startingly life like, it was the perfec
tion of the horse that caused the most
comment in Kentucky, the home of the
equine beautiful. The most noted horse
owners and breeders of the Blue Grass
state are unanimous in saying the Cop
pini horse is the most perfect specimen
the? ever saw in bronr.e.
The horse was modeled from life, Elsi
aa. Major Ripley’s horse, having sev-
ROBBER SUSPECT
UNDER ARREST
Suspected of having assaulted and
robbed Esperion Sianz at an early hour
Sunday morning, at his home, 610 Za
valla 1 street. a Mexican was taken into
custody yesterday by the police and
is being held at headquarters pending
an investigation.
Sianz was found by the police about
2 o’clock last Sunday morning lying in
an unconscious condition in front of his
home, suffering from a large gash on
the left side of his head. He was taken
to the city hospital.
Sainz made a statement to the police
telling them that while asleep on his
front gallery he was struck on the head
with some heavy instrument. His cloth
ing was gone through and $33 taken
from him. He furnished a description
of a man seen loitering about the place
just before he went to sleep with the
result that the arrest was made this
morning. Sainz, however, is not posi
tive in his identification and the other
denies any connection with the assault
and robbery.
MOVING PICTURES
AT PRO MEETING
Moving pictures advocating the cause
of temperance will be a feature during
the closing nights of this week at the
tent meetings which are being conduct
ed by the prohibitionists at West Com
merce and San Jacinto streets. It is
planned to give the first series of the
pictures Thursday night.
Last night Rev. R. F. Stokes of San
Antonio delivered the principal address.
Afraid of Ghosts
Many people are afraid of ghosts. Few people
are afraid of germs. Yet the ghost is a fancy and
the germ ia a fact. If the germ could be magnified
to a size equal to its terrors it would appear more
terrible than any fire-breathing dragon. Germs
can’t be avoided. They are in the air we breathe,
the water we drink.
The germ ean only prosper when the condition
of the system gives it free scope to establish it
self and develop. When there is a deficiency of
vital force, languor, restlessness, a sallow cheek, 1
a hollow eye, when the appetite is poor and the
sleep is broken, it is time to guard against the germ. You can
fortify the body against all germs by the use of Dr. Pierce’s Gold
en Medical Discovery. It increases the vital power, cleanses the
system of elogging impurities, enriches the blood, puts the stom
ach and organs of digestion snd nutrition in working condition, so
thst the germ finds no weak or tainted spot in which to breed.
“Golden Medical Discovery” contains no alcohol, whisky or
habit-forming drugs. All its ingredients printed on its outside
wrapper. It is not a secret nostrum but a medicine op known
composition and with a record of 40 years »f cures. Accept no
aubatitute—there is nothing “just as good.” Ask your neighbors.

eral “sittings” in Coppini’s studio
in this city. She is, indeed, a beautiful
animal —the perfect type of the cavalry
horse. Sired by Garcon, a famous thor
oughbred who traces back along a long
line of other famous thoroughbreds,
which include Parole and Enwuirer, she
was dammed by a Kentucky saddler
who also boasted the bluest of Blue
Grass blood.
Aside from the facts, however, there
is a certain sentiment attached to the
incident that points out the certainty
hat the war is over for good and all.
The fact that a United States army horse
served as the model for a statue on
which is mounted a famous Confederate
general, and that this statue was ac
cepted by a committee oF Daughters of
the Confederacy is just another link to
draw the south and north closer to
gether and prove that there is no longer
any south or any north—but a reunited
whole in every sense of the word.
WAITER ACCUMULATES
A SMALL FORTUNE
New York, June 9. —Charles Miller,
who has worked for $3O a month for
thirty-four years as a waiter behind
the lunch counter in the old Astor
house, resigned his job yesterday and
announced his intention of taking a trip
to Europe. At the hotel it was said
that Miller had accumulated a fortune
of $200,000 from working as a waiter.
He is familiarly known by many prom
inent men in the lower part of Manhat
tan and about his counter every day
could be found men on whom he had
been waiting for a quarter of a cent
ury.
Chronic Rheumatism.
This is the variety of rheumatism
that usually attacks the larger joints,
knees, hips and shoulders. It is aggra
vated by cold and damp weather, and
for this reason a man afflicted with it
can often foretell changes in the weath
er. Chamberlain's Liniment applied
freely and with vigorous rubbing re
lieves the pain and makes sleep and
rest possible. It will also effect a cure,
but will not prevent the recurrence of
the disease. For sale by all druggists.

HUSBAND DIED; SHE
WENT TO OFFICE.
MRS. 8. A. ROBISON. i
Manhatton, Kan., June 4.—Mrs. S.
A. Robison is one of the well-to-do
business persons of Kansas.
One day, several years ago, her hus
band, a real estate agent, met death in
an aceident. He had not been highly
successful, and the family was depend
ent on Mrs. Robison.
One morning, after- the funeral, she
went down to the office to sec'what the
real estate business was like. She dis
covered that her husband had several
deals “hanging fire.’’ She pushed those
through and got the money. Before long
she was heart and soul in the business,
and since then she has made a small
fortune.
Keen It On Hand
Woman’s Tonic
When you’re tired and nervous, worn out and weak, you need a
good tonic. You need a strength-giving, invigorating medicine.
Naturally, you want something of known merit —a standard preparation.
Try Cardui, the popular medicine for women. This preparation
has been successfully used, by thousands of women, for more than half
a century. Letters come to us daily, telling of the benefit and relief
Cardui has given. These letters recommend Cardui for headache,
dizziness, fainting, pains in the side or limbs, and for all those troubles
from which only women suffer.

MRS. SAGE GIVES
MILLIONS AWAY
Her Donations for Public Pur
poses Amount to Over Twen
ty-five Million Dollars.
Associated Press.
New York. June 9.—ln less than
three years, Mrs. Russell Sage has spent
more than $25,000,000 for public pur
poses and the benefit of mankind. The
recent investigation abroad of the ques
tion of working men’s insurance ami
the establishment of a gigantic employ
ment bureau call attention anew to her
prolific bounty.
It took Russel] Sage fifty years to
get $65,000,000. This great sum
amounted to $3500 a day for the life
time of the financier.
Mrs. Sage is now giving away the for
tune at the rate of $25,000 a day. If
the widow continues her charity at the
pace she has set all will be gone in five
years. Comparison of the financier’s
power to make money with Mrs. Sage's
faculty of giving it away shows that
the widow is giving away $2 in the
same time that it took Mr. Sage to ac
cumulate “thirty cents.”
JAIL DELIVERY
IS THWARTED
One Convict Got Away, But Is
Finally Recaptured By a
Young Farmer Girl.
Associated Press.
Joliet, 111., June 9. —A jail delivery
plot by which more than 100 men were
to have eseaped from the state prison
was thwarted by the coolness of a hand
ful of guards today when 150 convicts
were held under threatening rifles after
one of their number had broken from
the stone quarry line and made his es
cape.
For a time, while August Valter,
the running eonviet, was making his
wild dAsh from the line, lives of pas
sengers in two electric cars were men
aced by the rifles of the guards as they
were aimed in a vain attempt to catch
a glimpse of the fleeing prisoner as he
raced side by side with the speeding
trolley.
Valter, who was picked by the lead
ers of the plot to make the first break
for liberty, was captured after a chase
of two hours through the country. He
was trapped in a shed by the daughter
of a fanner who had been notified of
his escape over the telephone.

I’M REIDY TO STMT IN
AEROPLANE BUSINESS ‘
WHEN THE PUBLIC IS'
WRIGHT BROTHERS’ AND LORIN WRIGHT, “BUSINESS
REPRESENTATIVE.”
Special Dispatch.
Dayton, 0., June 9.—Wilbur Wright, j
Orville Wright—popular heroes.
But—Lorin Wright, the man behind
the business.
And Lorin Wright,’ brother of the I
“kings of the air,” has a big business
before him, too.
Suppose, 15 years ago, some one man
held all the patents ou automobiles.
What a job he would have had be- 1
fore him to plan the great industry of
making and selling automobiles, as it
exists today! It wouldn’t be a one
man job, by any means.
Yet Lorin Wright's business is to j
plan this very thing.
He and his brothers believe that aero [
planes will be as popular as automobiles. ’
for purposes of sport, at some near
date.
In getting the business of the future
in hand, the first thing to do, of course,
is to protect patents.
“Practically all the flying machines
that are being tried out in this coun
try,” said Lorin Wright, “are patent
ed after the Wright machine. Howexor,
as long as we are not out of the experi
mental stage and the business of man
ufacturing aeroplanes is still in its in- 1
fancy we will not fight imitators, who !
are experimenting, but we will see to
it that no machines are marketed that |
infringe on the Wright patents.”
FRYE’S TOES HURT Hlfo
THOUGH THEY’RE BURIED
Special Dispatch.
New York, June 9.—Ernest Frye, 256
West Fifty-sixth street, who lost a leg
in an automobile accident two weeks
ago, is suffering a at the hos
pital. For a time he seemed to be re
covering, but one day he complained
that his toes on the amputated leg hurt
him. The doctors tried to convince him
that this was impossible, and all imag
inary.
“It may be imaginary, all right,”
said Frye, but I know when my toes
hurt me, better than anybody else
dots. ’ *
Frye thinks that if the buried leg is
exhumed and the toes treated he will
feel better.
Note this letter from Mrs. R. C. Berry, 124 N. Borke St., Kansas
City, Kans. She writes: "I am more than pleased with the results
obtained from Cardui. I have taken 5 bottles and
am In much better health than ever before. I was
troubled with female disorders and suffered so
much that I could not be left alone. I found relief
la Cardui and keep It in the house all the time.”
Cardui Is a purely vegetable preparation,
scientifically prepared and consisting only of harm
less ingredients. It’s a safe, reliable medicine.
Try Cardui. It’s the tonic yeu need.

“Flying machines will probably en-
I joy a popularity like that attained by
automobiles. This will be as soon as
the public gets acquainted with them,
i learns how to operate them and out

away from the earth.
“Americans are not yet buying flying
machines. They couldn't handle one of
our machines if they had it. They must
first be taught its mechanism and how
to operate it.

Into the Academy.
Associated Press.
New York, June 9.—While We*
Point was celebrating its graduating
exercises last night and entertaining
200 or more women visitors, the Mili
tary Academy was captured by a hos
tile fleet of war vessels which came
down the river, bombarded the strong
hold, repulsed the defending forces and
marched a conquering army into the
fortifications. The attack was a com
plete surprise th the visitors and when
the search lights on the hills picked out
the enemy, a fleet in the river, and the
bombarding began, there was much ex
citement. The attacking force was
commanded by a regular army officer,
as were the defenders, while three lieu
tenants were members of the graduat
ing class of West Point. The attack on
the military college and its subsequent
investment was a novel feature of ths
commencement exercises and was so
successful that it is likely to be re
peated every year.
