We do not hesitate to say that a certain person is old when we see that hia frame le stiff, hie skin dry and hard, the roseate hue gone from hie cheek, and the sparkle from hie eye. Now what causes this condition and how can it be delayed, if not overcome? The hardening of the frame. •f all the tissues, Including the arteries, Is due to the deposit in the tissues of mineral matter taken In the food and drink, ab sorbed Into the blood and grad ually deposited, much at earthy matter is deposited In a tea-ket tle or slime and earth in city water pipes. This mineral mat ter, chiefly phosphate and car bonate of lime, destroys the elasticity of the arteries and gradually hardens the tissues, including the brain. Now there are two chief sources from which this eartty matter Is Introduced Into the blood, bread, especially fine white bread, and hard drinking r water. The percentage of lime In bread io large, and white bread is especially liable to form ctyicretiona of lime In the lowgr Intestine (often inducing appendicitis), which are ab sorbed Into the blood and de posited In the Tissues, gradually producing that dry and hard ened condition of the skin which Is a distinguishing mark of old ige.

Adams HENRY WANTS TRIAL Bilbo’s Assailant Makes State ment. Chafes Under Delay. Starkville, Miss., July 26.—A new chapter was added to the severe whip- [ | ping given at Starkville recently to[ i Theo. G. Bilbo, candidate for lieuten- j [ant-governor, by Hon. J. J. Henry, when the latter issued a statement say-! [ ing that he has twice appeared in court for trial, and Bilbo declines to prosecute the case, Mr. Henry'b statement goes fully into the details of the affair, quoting the language used by Bilbo which pro voked the assault. In part, he said: ‘ “To the Public: “The second continuance of the case [ against me, growing out of the diffi culty with Senator Bilbo, forces me to issue this response to the false and malicious statements from Bilbo and Ross Collins. Both times I have an nounced ‘ready for trial,” and both ' times the state has asked for the con-1 1 tinuance. i “I regret to take this course. I bad hoped that there would be a full, fair [ and open trial, ;n which the testimony of sworn witnesses would disclose the true facts to the public. j “Bilbo has declined to prosecute the case; and it seems that there is to be no trial. Why? Because Bilbo knows that the truth will come out and that the truth will damn him forever. The case having been thus twice continued, I will have no opportunity to ventilate the whole affair, for the present at least, as Bilbo, Collins & Co , are try ing to make political capital out of the matter and have no intention whatever of taking it to the courts, where it rightfully belongs. “There was no attempted ‘assassina tion.’ I had no intention whatever of killing Bilbo. If I had had any such purpose, there was nothing to have prevented my shooting him on sight, or at any time during our little inter- ( view, as he was too badly scared to of- . fer any resistance more serious than a little scratching and kicking, although the evidence will show that he was armed and ready. I intended to give ', him a good, sound whipping; and I did that. By his vicious and cowardly at-'; tack upon me, with its invasion of the i silent city of the dead where my saint- ! ed mother sleeps, with its desecration j of her sacred tomb, he had forfeited ] his right to live; but i did not want to . kill him. Solely because I did not care ', to shed his blood I made him a present ] of his worthless life. I ( “His statements about being beaten i into insensibility and unconscious- ! ness are utterly untrue. He was never unconscious, stood up in the car, i straightened out his clothing, engaged 1 in ordinary conversation with two or 1 three gentlemen, when I was through with him, and made arrangements for medical attention as soon as the tra in l could r$ach Sturgis. It was not un- j; conciousnesp. merely cowardice, when ; he whined and bleated and apologized. ' He first made a partial retraction and apology, which I did not accept; and he then made a full and complete , apology and retraction. He was not an unconcious man, only an arrant cow ard, and would not even take his whipping like a man. I was not be hind him, did not strike him from be-' hind, ai:d sooke to him before hitting him, first demanding an apology and _*_..A,:__ i l_ * l_ rni__l._ i itvi nviiuii wi aiio ini'^uu^v. iiiv wmj • time that I touched him from behind ' was when 1 kicked him from behind where it would do the most good. “As for the statements about Ross Collins being covered with a pistol and held in a corner of a car, this is absurd. intima-. tion of trouble Collins ran, and ran in a hurry. He left the smoking compart- J mint, ran into the negro car and hid J in the negro water closet, where he stayed hidden until the train pulled out! of Starkville. This fact will be verified by the evidence of at least four disin terested white witnesses, who were riding upon the train. He was prob ably wise in doing so, as he is the man '• who had taught Bilbo the unspeakably ! ; infamous language employed about me. ! “There was r.o ‘crowd' or ‘gang’, with me when I whipped Bilbo; and the only man there was my kinsman, J. D- Nichols. “My Starkville friends knew noth | ing whatever of the difficulty until af | ter it was all over, and did not even | know that 1 was in town. “Ross Collins may have been present j in spirit, but in his bodily person he | was playing ‘hide and seek.’ Mr. Nich , ols has been a hard-working farmer for I many years and is now er. gaged the ! mercantile business at this pla^e. No ! man in the community stands higher as | an upiight law-abiding citizen. “I had no connection whatever eith er with the publication or distribution of any cnculars about Bilbo. The state had been fi oded with various political circulars. I did happen at one time to have piobably two copies of the I^ilho circular shat had been incidental y ha .tied tone, and I gave one of them yp man by the rame of Cole, who - was askmit me some q lestiono ab>ut ■ him that I could not answer. I merely happened to have it in my pocket and 1 gave it to Cole at his r> quest. “iii.bo, in his speech at Blue Moun r STATEMENT ' Showing the Condition of the Peoples Bank and Trust Co. of Tupelo, Mississippi on June 7th, 1911, as reported to the State Auditor.

He denounced me as ‘a cross between i hyena and a mongrel, begotten in a rigger graveyard at midnight, suckled iy a sow and educated by a fool. ’ “He doe3 not deny, but admits that le used the language. He only under takes in his statement to argue that it was not ‘insulting. ’ It might not have leen insulting to him, but it was in- j iulting to me. I would not have used luch language about him or any other . iving human being. My parents are: joth dead and in heaven. Their mem >ry is sacred to me. My father was a Confederate soldier who died upon the i rid of battle; only a private, but no letter or braver man ever lived. His oving comrades at dead of night laid lim away in his tattered gray uniform, ind he sleeps today in an unknown, un-1 narked grave, far from home, in a dis :ant state. “I have made a pilgrimage to a lonely j line tree at the spot where his remains j ire believed to rest, but we do not even lave the melancholy satisfaction of j mowing with certainty that his dust les there. ‘A cross between a mon grel and a hyena.’ Was that father, who died a hero’s death upon the bat riefieJd, a ‘mongrel’ or a ‘hyena?’ My mother was a sweet, gentle woman, who walked and talked with God.

Who could stand it? None but a bad man would say such a thing as Bilbo said, and none but a contemp tible coward would take it, 1 did not take it. I wnipped him and whipped him soundly the first time that I ran across him. He will not soon forget it To any man who poses as an apolo gist for I have one question: Would you permit any living human being to say of you, “He is a cross between a mongrel and a hyena, begotten in a nigger graveyard at midnight, suckled by a sow and educated by a fool'? 1t so, you should be sent back to nature’s mint and reissued as a has counterfeit on humanity’s baser metal.’ If I had submitted to it my soldier father would have spurned me in the day of judge ment, and my mother shed bitter tears of grief and gr.ef and shame at the in famy of her son. This is a correct statement of the facts. “It was not politics; it was purely a personal matter. Bilbo simply said things about me that no honorable man could take. 1 resented it and did so in moderation by sparing his unworthy life. “I would have preferred that these facts go to the public through the sworn testimony of witnesses, but be ing unable to secure a trial, this state ment is my only alternative. “1 am ready for trial.
