Tbe Rev. Dr. Robert Watson, pastor of tbe Second Presby terian cburcb, which is attend ed by tbe Tafts and other social leaders, fired this broadside at Congressman Nicholas Long worth and his wife and mother today.

"Long worth is prominent be cause be married '.the Presi dent's daughter. He is also a Congressman, sworn to uphold tbe laws, yet he deliberately breaks them and defies public opinion by giving a breakfast to some thirty-rive society lead ers on Sunday.

Some of those who witnessed tbe wordy encounter were form' er Probate Judge Thos. Crews, Seuator Kinney, Hugh Brady and Zach Mulball, well known as a livestock agent.

Why Insurance Companies Discriminate Against the Gentle Sex. It one is to believe tbe medi cal examiners tbe reason a woman pays more for tbe priv ilege of life insurance is tbat she is much more commonly a victim of indigestion and stom ach troubles and tbe fatal ail ments that spring from these causes It is not tbe acute attacks of disease that influence the in surance examiners alone, but the constant feelings of weak ness, headache, indigestion and stomach trouble. These things physicians say. kill more people than many of tbe serious dis eases. For curative power in ail stomacb troubles nothing else is as safe yet effective, nothing else can be so thoroughly relied upon to relieve all troubles of indigestion, as Mi-o-na. It is nnlike any remedy heretofore known; it is not a mere diges tive tablet; it strengthens and restores to natural action tbe stomacb and bowels and makes complete cure in even tbe worse torra ot stomacb troubles.
