Trouble Will Exceed Anything Brer
Seen on Planet.
New York. -In his sermon at the
memorial service of the Loyal Legion
of the United States in the Church of
the Incarnation this afternoon, the
Rev. Dr. Morgan Dix, rector of Trinity
parish, predicted that "if international
war should cease that happy occurrence
would not bring war to an end; it would
still have to be waged, not by nation
against nation, but within each nation,
between forces of protective law and
order and other forces destructive to
the peace and quiet of the State.
Dr. Dix's sermon was heard by Bishop
Potter and several prominent army and
navy officers of the civil war and their
guests. In it he prophesied the great
est war this planet has ever seen.
Modern society is in ferment today.
This city contains, one dreads to think
how large a number, a multitude whc
are deluded by visions never to be real
ized and seething with passions which
no calm voice or sound speech can allay.
This city, thank God, has a standing
army keeping watch on the turbulent
and the seditious. A police force, num
bering, horse aud foot, 8,000 men, wed
disciplined, trained to the number of
controlling mobs and dispersing rioters;
a national guard numbering some 9,600,
infantry, cavalry and artillery, and be
yond and below, where the bay reflects
the sun, are military reservations,
where the flag of freedom flies above
the barracks and batteries of the gov
ernment of the United States.
Dismiss the police, disband the na
tional guard and secure noninterfereuce
by the general government, and what
would happen?
I know what I am talking about, for
I saw with these eyes the Astor Place
riot in 1849, and the draft riots in 1863,
and the Orange riots in 1870-71, and I
venture to predict that within a month
we shall see worse things yet—mobs pa
rading the streets, houses burning,
shops looted and citizens fleeing for
their lives. Such revolutionary out
rages would, of course, provoke resist

Four Men Board Train Near Minter
City, Miss.
Memphis, Tenn.—A report reached
this city last night of a hold-up on the
Yazoo and Mississippi Valley Kailway,
just north of Minter City, which for
boldness and insolence was never sur
passed by Rube Burrows in the days of
his most daring depredations. Four
men boarded the Greenville accommo
dation as it pulled out of Minter City
shortly after 11 o'clock yesterday morn
ing, one of them covering Engineer W.
Carney with a revolver, another look
ing after Conductor Cage, the brakeman
and the porter, and the other two going
into a coach in search of two ladies.
Mrs. Nye and Mrs. Anderson, two
ladies who had boarded the train at
Minter City, were ordered to produce
$25 for livery hire. The ladies had
hired a buggy from a negro man at
Philipp, Miss., early in the morning
and had driven to Minter City. They
said that they had only $5, and when
this was tendered to the men, one of
them cursed and swore and threw the
money on the floor. They then left the
The ladies bad been collecting money
for an orphanage, and it is believed
that the hold-up men had knowledge of
this and hoped to get quite a haul.
For Purpose of Robbery—Both In
jured Are in Dying; Condition.
Bardwell, Ky.—Ed Stockton, aged
about 17 years, shot and mortally wound
ed his unclg, Barlow Stockton, at the
latter's home, and then assaulted Mrs.
Stockton, who came to her husband's
rescue, knocking her down with his
rifle, and covering her unconscious body
with kerosene he set fire to her cloth
ing. The flames revived her, and she
was enabled, in some unaccountable
manner, to extinguish them, but not
until she had been frightfully burned.
She lies at tjie home of a neighbor near
here in a dying condition, and her hus
band at the home of another, with a like
fate staring him in the face. Young
Stockton was arrested and placed in jail
here today.
It was known that Barlow Stockton
kept a lot of money at his house, and it
is supposed that the nephew went there
with the intention of murdering his
relatives and securing what sums he
could find. He did get $80, and the offi
cers took $69.75 away from him.

This is known as "Blood-Cleaning
Time," especially among the older
folks, who always take something dur

Impurities and build it up.
The following is the recipe as given
by a well-known authority, and any
one can prepare it at home:

Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla three

It Is said that one week's use of this

Man's Queer Jumble of Words War

recently told this story at New Ha

that he could be cured if every time
he felt that he must have a drink he
would Immediately take something to

The man followed the advice and
was cured, but the habit of asking for
food had become so fixed with him
that once he was nearly locked up as
a lunatic. He was stopping at a hotel
and, hearing a great commotion In the
room next to his, he peeped over the
transom to see what the matter was.
He saw, and rushed madly down to
the office and shouted to the clerk:
"The man in 163 has shot himself!

The wise father and mother will
never discourage the fancies of their
children for accumulating things. It
is a natural instinct, Inborn in the
most of people, and given a little
thought and care by the older heads
may be turned to good account. If
the child begins to collect "pretty"
pebbles or shells at the seashore don't
throw them out—but let them form
the basis of a little geological col
lection, and with proper guidance the
youngster will soon Be looking upon

The Land Made Famous by Philpotts'
Philpotts has made us familiar with
romantic Devonshire, in his fascinating
novels, "The River,
Mist," etc. The characters are very
human; the people there drink coffee
with the same results as elsewhere. A
writer at Rock House, Orchard Hill,
Bideford, tforth Devon, states:
"For 30 years I drank coffee for
breakfast and dinner'but some 6 years
ago I found that it was producing indi
gestion and heart-burn, and was mak
ing me restless at night. These symp
toms were followed by brain fag and
a sluggish mental condition.
"When I realized this, I made up my
mind to quit drinking coffee and
having read of Postum, I concluded to
try it. I had it carefully made, accord
ing to directions, and found to my
agreeable surprise at the end of a
week, that r no longer suffered from
either indigestion, heart-burn, or brain
fag, and that I could drink it at night
and secure restful and refreshing
Children of the
"Since that time we have entirely
discontinued the use of the old kind of
coffee, growing fonder and fonder of
Postum as time goes on. My digestive
organs certainly do their work much
better now than before, a result due
to Postum Food Coffee, I am satisfied.
"As a table beverage we find (for all
the members of my family use it) that
when properly made It Is most refresh
ing and agreeable, of delicious flavor
and aroma. Vigilant!© Is, however,
necessary to secure this, for unless the
servants are watched they are likely
to neglect tbe thorough boiling which*
it must have In order to extract the
goodness from the cerevl." Name given

B. Frank Doremus, veteran, of
Roosevelt avenue, Indianapolis, Ind.,
'I had been
showing symptoms of
kidney trouble from
the time I was mus

but iu all my life 1
never suffered as in
1897. Headaches, diz
ziness and sleepless

dropsy. I was weak
and helpless, having
run down from 180 to 126 pounds. I
was having terrible pain In the kid
neys, and the secretions passed almost
involuntarily. My left leg swelled un
til it was 34 inches around, and the
doctor tapped It night and morning
until I could no longer stand It, and
then he advised amputation. I re

my pains and aches disappeared. I

8oldlering In China.
Corporal Frank Hayden, of the
army recruiting station, who spent a
year of army service in China, saya
it i 8 a good country to "soldier" in.
"The worst thing about China and
the Islands," he said, "is that there's
no one to associate with except the
natives. Otherwise they're good
places, China especially, to do mili
tary service. Food of good quality is
very cheap. We could buy 176 eggs
there for 60 cents American money
or one dollar 'Mex.' Ten cents would
buy a fine fat chicken and 60 cents a

Known Excellence and Quality and of Known Component Parts.
To gain the full confidence of the Well-Informed of the world and the approval of
the most eminent physicians, it is essential that the component parts be known o an

years past in its advertisements and upon every package a full statement thereof. 1 ne per

This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs, and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-Informed of the world to be the best of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of Figs and Elixir o
