GREAT FLEET STARTS UNDER COMMAND OF REAR ADMIRAL EVANS. President Roosevelt Wont to Old Point Comfort to Give Command Starting Atlantic Fleet for Pacific—Review Ineide the s Bay—World's Greatest Armada in Perfect Condition. Washington, Dee, Is.—President Roosevelt, accompanied by Mrs. Roose velt and a distinguished company of guests, sailed on the naval yacht May flower from the Washington navy yard at 3:07 o'clock Sunday for Hampton Roads. The president in his capacity as commander in chief of the United States navy gave the word of com mand which sent the Atlantic battle ship fleet on its cruise to the Pacific, As the ships passed out to sea their last farewell was from the president. On the deck of the Mayflower hejead the ships through the Virginia capes, then gave way to the flagship Con necticut as the double line of 16 iron clads set their course to the ward. Thus began what the president has planned as the supreme test of the American navy. The announced des tination of the fleet is San Francisco bay, but when and- where the cruise will ultimately end seems as yet an un matured plan for the future. Old Point Comfort, Va., Dec. 16.— The Pacific-bound Atlantic fleet left Monday morning on its journey through the straits of Magellan en route, as the official order reads, "for the west coast of the United States." Rear Admiral Evans, commander in chief of the fleet, the most notable of American peace expeditions, boarded the Mayflower and paid his respects to the president and was immediately fol lowed by the other flag and command ing officers of the fleet. The reception and the journeys of the admirals and captains to and from the" Mayflower lasted more than an hour, and a half hour more was con sumed in lifting anchor and getting the ships in position for the start, which was made about 10 o'clock. Two hours later the first of the long line of vessels cleared the Virginia capes and turned her course to the southward. The review of the passing fleet by the president took place near. Thimble shoal lighthouse, 10 miles down the bay. . Saturday night the 16 smoking bat tleships were bathed in moonlight, the view down the long twin lines of the fleet being most impressive. The enlisted force of each ship, num bering nearly a thousand men to the company, was lined up at quarters to listen to the reading of the articles .of war. The men seemed deeply impressed, as they were also with more personal words which came in orders from Ad miral Evans, the commander in chief, and from the rear admirals on board the three divisional flagships. Every man was told what his duty was to his country, to his flag and to his superior oflicers. They were cautioned to up hold the dignity of their uniform when going ashore at South American ports and always conduct themselves in an orderly and sober maimer. After the articles of war had been read the chap lains of the several ships read from the Bible at divine worship. "We could not take on another pound of provisions," said one officer, "unless we followed the very bad ex ample of the Russians, who were caught by the Japanese with eight inch gun turrets stored with hams and powder chambers filled with caviare." Severat scouting parties were ashore looking for pines to be used as Christ mas trees. Nearly all were successful, an dthe little pines will be carefully stowed away until after Trinidad "is reached on Christmas eve. Although bound for an extended tour of duty in the Pacific ocean, the fleet still retains its title of the "United States Atlantic fleet," under which designation the last sailing orders have been issued. Only $1 Old Point Comfort, Va., Dec. 16.— Sixteen hard-hitting,steel-bolted Amer ican battleships, bristling and burly of girth, but sparkling white in the im-, maculate dressings of peace, started away today under the dazzling sun of a cloudless winter sky on their famous twin-sea expedition of 14,000 miles/ along foreign shores and changing climes, to the west coast of the United States. There was not a ship in the line old enough to hare smelled the powder or taken the shot of Manila or Santiago —stories written scarcely 10 years ago in the history of nations. All were modern of design, examples of the ag gressive sea-going nan, which the president has declared to be so essen tial to the epaoe of the country.

LAWBON 18 WRECKED Seven-Matted American Schooner Turn* Turtle Near the Sleljly With Seas. Hughtown, England, Dec. 15.— After successfully riding out a succes sion of galea which she encountered all the way across the Atlantic, in which she lost all her lifeboats, the seven-masted American schooner Thomas W. Lawson was capsized *ia Broad sound, Sieilly islands, where the captain took shelter from the fierce storm raging along the English coast last night. Of the crew of It, including Pilot Hicks, who hoarded the vessel from the life-savers'- boat dur ing the night, only three were rescued. These were Captain G. W. Dow ef Melrose, Mass.; Edward L. Rows, the engineer, of Wiscasset, Me., and George Allen of Bramford, England. The schooner left Philadelphia No vember 19 for London with a cargo of oil. She had battled with the seas all the way across, and when she entered Broad sound her captain, knowing the dangers of the coast, threw out his anchors. Later, in answer to his sig nals of distress, the life savers put out two boats and found the Lawson an chored in a dangerous position off Gunner's rock. The seas were running high and the gale was increasing, and the life savers found that their efforts at rescue were useless. One of the boats returned for a tug and the other was compelled to put back to shore because of the exhausted con dition of the men. During their ab sence the Thomas W. Lawson turned ' turtle. Explosion Killed 50. Yolande, Ala., Deo. 17. — A disas trous explosion took plaoe in mine No. 1 of the Yolande Goal and Goak oom pay Monday morning. It is impossible to tell how many are dead as a result of the explosion, the estimates varying all, the way from 40 to 60. The work of rescue has been extremely slow be cause of the debris in the mines and the large crowd q£ women, children and sightseers at the opening. The explosion is now known to have occurred in either the fifth or sixth right entrance. All of the bodies have been recovered from those entrances and some of them were so horribly mutilated that identificaion is almost impossible. The bodies of 12 white and seven colored men have been ident ified. Aooording to Superintendent T. G. Huckabee, the explosion was undoubt edly due to "windy" shots. Mr. Huck abee had just made a tour of inspection and congratulated some of the men on the condition of their rooms. A few minutes after reaching the top and when he was about to go for a day's hunt the explosion occurred. Parties of miners from Abernate, Searles, Davis creek and Brookwood are here ready to help in the recovery of those who are still entombed. The last report says 35 bodies have been taken from the mines and that the rescuers .believe between 85 and 40 are still in the lower entrances. : s Mine Horrors of Half Century.

PASS THIS AROUND TELLS HOW TO MAKE A SIMPLE RHEUMATISM CURE AT HOME Prescription Given Which Sufferers of Dread Disease Can Easily Make Up and Try at Home at Small Cost. To relieve the worst form of Rheu matism, take a teaspoonful of the fol lowing mixture after -each meal and at bedtime: Fluid Extract Dandelion, one half ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce; Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three ounces. These harmless ingredients can do obtained from any druggist in the smaller towns, and are easily mixed by shaking them well in a bottle. Re lief is generally felt irom the first few doses. This prescription, states a well known authority in a Cleveland morn ing paper, forces the clogged-up, inac tive kidneys to filter and strain from the blood the poisonous waste matter and uric acid, which causes Rheuma tism. As Rheumatism is not only the most painful and torturous disease, but dan gerous to life, this simple recipe will no doubt be greatly valued by many sufferers here at. home, who should at once prepare the mixture to get this relief. It is said that a person who would take this prescription regularly, a dose or two daily, or even a few times a week, would never have serious Kid ney or Urinary disorders or Rheumat ism. Cut this out and preserve it. Good Iheumatism prescriptions which really relieve are scarce, indeed, and when you need it, you want it badly. CONTAfiIOOS BLOOD POSSOU NO LIMIT TO ITS POWERS FOR EVIL Contagious Blood Poison has brought more suffering, misery and humilni tlon into the world tkan all other diseases combined; there is hardly any limit to its powers for evil. It is the blackest and vilest of all disorders, wrecking the lives of those unfortunate enough to contract it and often being transmitted to innocent offspring, a blighting legacy of suffering and shame. So highly contagious is the trouble that innocent persons may contract A by using the same table ware, toilet articles or clothing of one in whose blood the treacherous virus has taken root. Not only is it a powerful poison but a very deceptive one. Only those who have learned by bitter experience know by the little sore or ulcer, which usually makes its appearance first, of the suffering which is to follow. It comes in the form of ulcerated mouth and throat, unsightly copper colored spots, swollen glands in the groin, falling hair, offensive sores and ulcers on the body, and in severe cases the finger nails firup off, the bones become diseased, the nervous system is shat tered and the sufferer becomes an object of pity to his fellow man. Especi ally is the treacherous nature of Contagious Blood Poison, shown when the infected person endeavors to combat the poison with mercury and These minerals will drive away all outward symptoms of the *<>* b^ fo / a while, and the victim is deceived into the belief that he is cured. When, however.the treatment is leftoff hefinds that the poisonhas only been driven deeper into the blood and the disease reappears and usually in worse form because these strong minerals have not only failed to remove the virus from thfblood but have weakened the entire system because of their destructive action.
