THE WANTED CALLERS
OLD LADY IN CHICAGO ADVER
TISES FOR FRIENDS
The Girl Who Seeks Out Some Poor
Old Lady Who Is Alone and Spends
an Hour With Her Now and Then, Is
Doing Real Charity Work, for Which
She Will Have a Rich Reward
A pathetic little advertisement ap
peared recently in a Chicago paper
asking ladies kindly to call upon Mrs.
So and so at a certain number. It was
inserted by a dear old lady who said
she had lived a stranger for fifteen
years at that address and no. one had
ever called upon her. She was lonely,
•vranted friends, and as the modern way
is to advertise for whatever one wants,
she took that means of letting her
neighbors know of her friendly desires.
It is not likely that this thing could
happen i-n a city the size of St. Patfl,
but in New York, Chicago Boston,
one could starve to death without one's
next door neighbor being" the wiser.
It is this that makes a large city so
undesirable for the poor. But the old
lady in question was not starving for
food, but for companionship and so
• ciability. She wanted friends and hu
man interests. So do we all.
Now that pathetic little notice
teaches us a lesson. Perhaps each one
of us may live next door to some lonely
old lady whose life we might brighten
by an occasional visit. The young
woman who has not an old lady
friend is unfortunate. For the girl
who goes through life selfishly, having
to do with none but those of her own
age, is shirking responsibility. And as
we receive exactly the same treatment
v.*e mete out to others, those of us who
do not try to brighten the lives of older
people, will find when our time comes
that we will have a lonesome old age.
The girl who makes friends of older
people is wiser than the one who de
votes her time solely to her own
friends. It is excellent practice in un
selfishness and patience to choose some
old person to visit. The friendly visit
ing which has been developed by char
ity workers is the most valuable form
of philantrophy. It is not done in a
prying professional way, but is one

Lydia E* Pinfcham^ Vegetable Compound*
R J " Dear Mes. Ptnkham: Four years■ ago I was nearly dead with inflam- •■
(nation arid uleeration. ' I endured daily untold agony, and life was a burden
o me. I . had . used medicines: and wkshes: internally and externally} until I 1
. made up my mind that.there',was no relief for irie. Calling- at the home of a
friend, I noticed a bottle of IjydiaE. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
ftly mend endorsed it highly. and 1 decided to'give it a trial to see if it would
help me. It took patience and persevefence for I'waV in bad condition; and I
used Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for nearly five months
before I was cured,-, but what a change, from 5 despair to happiness, from
misery to the delightful exhilarating feeling health; always brings. I would
not change back for a thousand < dollars, and your Vegetable Compound is a ;

Whether Mrs. George Law is here
for sentimental reasons or for senti
ment combined with business is
known, of course, only to herself, but
it is certain there is one business af
fair she may take up before she re
turns to Europe, and that is the suit
brought against her by the widow of
Dr. I. N. Love to recover $5,000 which
Mrs. Love says her husband earned as
his fee in performing an operation and
in subsequent professional attention.:
Dr. Love died on the Cunarder Aura
nia in June, 1903, when returning from
England, whither he had gone as phy
sician to the rich widow. After Dr.
Love's death, Mrs. Love alleged that
"her husband had not been paid for his
services, and she brought suit. This in

.The effort of Gov. Garvin to obtain

the general assembly to act on any of
them, although there was a spirited de
bate in both branches. Both branches,
tiowever, passed a resolution condemn
ing the action "of the governor in^calling
the extra session and calling for an ad
journment until Nov. 15.
- The resolution condemning the gov
ernor was introduced by Senator Sti

called almost entirely by the Demo- i
cratic members, as the governor failed !
to recognize any of the Republicans. I
The concurrent action of the house on !
the resolution brought the session to v.

prize court has decided to release the
British steamer Calchas (captured
while bound from Puget sound ports to
Japan by the Vladivostok squadron)
and also the neutral portions of the
vessel's cargo. That part of the cargo
consigned to Japan, consisting of flour,
cotton and timber, is confiscated. The
Calchas will be detained three months
in order to allow its -owners time for
an appeal from the prize court's deci

row. It will be favorable to the con
tention that foodstuffs are conditional
contraband, if addressed to an enemy's
unblockaded ports, where the ship's
papers are regular and the goods are
consigned to private persons or firms
and not to a government direct. The
American view regarding some of the
other points, however, is not conceded.
For instance, it is believed that Rus
sia -will insist on the contraband char
acter of railroad material. Under the
application of this decision the ad
miralty court here will reverse the de
cision of the Vladivostok prize court
so far as it relates to the confiscation
of flour, as in thd cases of the Arabia
and Calchas, addressed to Japanese
ports.
A dispatch from Vladivostok says
that the Calchas has not yet been re
leased, a hitch having arisen over the
claim of the judge advocate, Lieut.
Gerve, who seized the Calchas, he
contending that she is liable to con
fiscation for carrying official corre
spondence of the enemy.
The fact that the prize court has
condemned a portion of the cargo is
a natural sequence of the interpreta
tion of the Russian prize regulations
made by the court in the case of the
Portland & Asiatic line steamer Ara
bia, also seized by the Vladivostok
squadron, and other vessels, find doea
not affect the ultimate decision by the
admiralty court, which will put into
effect the modifications already de
cided upon in principle by the com
mission here along lines favorable to
the American and British contentions.
Japanese Levy Taxes in Manchuria
MUKDEN, Sept. 15.—The Japanese
are causing excitement among the na
tives of Manchuria as they advance
by establishing their own system of
taxation and administration as though
the country were actual Japanese ter
ritory. They are paying for supplies
with promissory notes on the war
fund, a blanket note being given for
the payment of each village on the
basis of population, leaving the resi
dents to divide pro rata. FeAV of these
:notes have yet been collected in cash,
but Japanese officers are collecting a
tax "levied for war expenses." They
have even advised the governor of
Mukden' to discontinue the salt tax,
as it will be'readjusted upon, a Jap
anese basis. Tlueyhave readjusted the
customs duties at Yinkow and placed
so heavy a tax upon" the thousands of
boats sailing thence as to almost par
alyze trade. . .
Much bushw,hackLng : .is .going on on
the road south of Mukden, and many
Russian soldiers have been 'kille.4 from
..the fields" of Chinese corn. However,
the corn harvest'will soon begin and
when the fields .are cleared the coun
try will be much more suitable for
military operation. The conduct of the
Linu-yang indicates a laxity of disci
pline. " One of the fir*st .incidents after

It is bitter in its arraignment of both

holds the latter especially responsible

Republicans of having betrayed the

Will Reduce Philippine Army
WASHINGTON, D. C, Sept. 15.—
With a view to a reduction in thje ex
pense of maintaining large military es
tablishments in the Philippines, Lieut.
Gen. Chaffee, chief of staff, recently
cajaled an inquiry to Gen. Wade, com
manding the Philippine division, ask
ing if conditions in the islands? would
not justify the reduction of the present
military force there from four regi
ments of cavalry and nine of infantry
to three regiments of cavalry and sev
en of infantry. Gen. Chaffee received
a reply from Gen. Wade expressing the
opinion that the proposed reduction of
military strength was not only practi
cable but advisable. It is more than
probable arrangements will be made to
bring home the troops in excess of the
number regarded by Gens. Chaffee and
Wade as essential to the situation.
Possible Ground for Complaint
ST.- PETERSBURG, Sept. 15.—The
foreign office says that no instruc
tions have been sent to Paul Lessar,
Russian minister at Peking, to protest
against the" reported presence of Jap
anese troops at Simmintin. The for
eign office has no actual information
of the presence of a Japanese column
at Simmintin, but says that if the re
port is true it is another plain viola
t'V-n by Japan of China's neutrality.
Russians Deny
ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 15.—The
war office denies the reports that 3,000
men of Lieut. Gen. ZassalitcH's corps
have been captured, that he hasxbeen
wounded, and that dum-dum bullets
were used by Russians at Liau-yang-.
The general staff denies that Gen. Line
vitch has marched into northeastern
Korea from Vladivostok and cut Gen.
Kuroki's communication with Feng
Wang Cheng.
Can Duplicate Russ Reinforcements
LONDON. Sept. 15.—The Daily Mail's
correspondent at Chiiu says that 300,000
Chinese coolies are engaged upon Japan
ese intrenchments between Dalny and
Port Arthur.
The Post's correspondent at Shanghai
hears that the calling out of a portion of
"the Japanese territorial army is imminent.
From Tokyo the correspondent of the
Standard telegraphs that the Chinese gov
ernment is becoming very uneasy over
the fate of Manchuria. An unconfirmed
report, he says, is current that Wu Ting
fang, the Chinese assistant foi^eign min
ister, will leave Peking shortly on a
special mission to Europe and America
on the Manchurian question.
Bennet Burleigh, cabling from Tien
Tsip to the Telegraph, insists that the
Japanese casualties in the battle of Liau
yang are nearer 30,000 than 17,000. ' Mr.
Burlergh's dispatch says:
"The Japanese, who are bad horsemas
ters. have many thousands of animals
foundered, terribly galled and sored. Re
inforcements both of men and horses are
being hastened northward. The- mikado's
troops~hold secretly but strongly all the
districts to the north along The Liao
river up to Sin Mintin. I believe the
chunchus are organizing for some im
portant operations north of Mukden.
"Oyama was overheard to say at Liau
yang that stubborn as Kuropatkin is, he v
must now be in a desperate condition and
aware that his game will not do. What
ever corps Russia may mobilize, Japan
can duplicate them with better troops
put into the field more quickly."
