Kidney-Wort Tablets Use No Drop
of Alcohol. -
The. " Get-Well-Quiek, "kidney remedies
are like the " tiet-Kieh-Quiek" schemes,
full of bitterness in the etiJ.
Alcohol enters largely into their com
position. Their immediate deceptive brae
ins; effect Is due to the alcohol, and so is
the depression, the increase in rheumat ism,
and the irritation of the entire urinary
tract that follows.
Don't take the remedy that will free

modern remedy that will thoroughly free
you from your disease. Liquid kidney
remedies can only give temporary relief.
Alcohol intensities all kidney and rheuma
tic diseases, no matter how much help it
seems to afford at the stait. Kidney-Wort
Tablets areas superior to the old-fashioned
lituid prepared kidney remedies as anti
toxin is superior to the ineffective diptberia
treatment of fifty years apo. Kidney-Wort
Tablets are purposly free from alcohol.
The Tablets have cured thousands of kid
ney sufferers who could got uo help from
liijuid remedies.

New York, June 22. la the race on
Lous Island 'sound for the Soawauba-I;a-Corinth!an
Yacht club cup the Reli
ance again proved her superiority over
her two rivals, the Constitution and
the Columbia, for the honor of defend'
ing the America's cup.
It was a special race for the cup, and
the Reliance won it from the Constitu
tion by a margin of 4m, 17s. She also
defeated the Columbia by 7m. 31s., and
the latter yacht was beaten Sru. l is. by
the Constitution.
The course was a comparatively short
one, being less than twenty llvo knots.
It was triangular, and the yachts went
twice around.
Improvement Shown by Columbia.
The average speed of the Reliance
was S.-1S miles an hour. She covered
the twenty-three and a half miles in
21). 4hn. 12s. The most impressive fea
ture of the race was the good work
done by the old time champion, the Co
lumbia. In the four miles of windward
work in the second round of the course
she covered the distance faster than the
Reliance by 2m. 59s. and faster than
the Constitution by 3m. 55s. The race
as a whole was closer and more satis
factory than any the yachts have sailed
since the Glen Cove series.
The breeze varied much in direction,
but it held fairly steady at about a
seven knot strength, with occasional
streaks blowing as high as twelve or
thirteen knots, and the yachts were
able to cover the twenty-three and a
h'tlf mile course in less than three
hours. The Reliance won on her merits,
and what luck their was in the matter
of picking up favoring slants Of wind
was evenly divided.
( onnlltut )u Lone at Start.
Had the Constitution made a better
start the Reliance's margin of victory
might have been much smaller. The
Columbia got over the line first, hut the
Reliance was only one second behind,
and Rarr was able to luff up into the
Columbia's weather. The Constitution
went across thirty-seven seconds later
and rapidly overhauled the Columbia,
but the Columbia had the Constitution
under her lee, and Rhodes could not get
her out.
An interested spectator was Colonel
B. F. IX Xeill, Sir Thomas Upton's
representative aboard the Erin and a
member of the Royal Clyde Yacht
club. . Colonel Neill was much im
pressed with the Reliance. "The Reli
ance Is a tine ship,' he said, "and ev
erything seems to have been done to
make her a perfect vessel. I do not
think that wo have no chance. I think
we have a fairly good chance nnd shall
make a good fight and work hard. Sir
Thomas Upton has given us everything
we need," . i ; ; ; ' "'

Richmond, Ya., June 22. In the peti

adjudged a bankrupt Judge Wuddill
has rendered decision that the ap
pointment of a receiver by the chan
cery court of the city of Richmond
Dec. 22, 11X12, which was the act of
bankruptcy complained of in the peti
tion, could not be taken advantage of
under the amendment of Feb. 5, 1003.
Judge Waddill holds that the amend
ment of Feb. 5, 1003, is not retroactive
and could not extend to the appoint
ment of a receiver prior to Feb. -ii, 1003,
rs was the case in the appointment of
a receiver for the Trigg company. It is
thought probable that this decision
may further complicate the situation in
respect to the cruiser Galveston.

Rickert U Wells Explain Why
Dyspepsia is Often Taken
For Heart Disease.
Also How Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets
Remove the Cause.
Among the many symptoms of Dyspep
sia one of the most 'annoying is the bloat
ing of the bowels. This is so great in
some cases as to interfere with the action
of the heart, and then we have palpitation,
a sense of smothering after eating, thort-uc-ss
of breath on exertion, and at times
severe pain in the region of the heait.
Many people rush In alarm to their phy
sician when affected with theso symptoms.
Now if you think you have heart dis
ease, try liexall Dyspepsia Tablets. If
the pain, palpitation, smothering and
shortness of breath come from Dyspepsia
or Indigestion you cet in Rexall the best
remedy iu the world. You will see all of
these distressing symptoms disappear; you
will receive the priceless boon of perfect
Hut if you really have heart disease
you are almost certain to have some form
of stomach trouble, whatever the form of
Dyspepsia or Indigestion. Whether in con
nection with heart disease or not, Rexall
Dyspepsia Tablets can be takeu with the
confidence that a speedy and permanent
cure will follow.
Then remember this: If Rexall SHOULD
fail to benelit you, Rickert & Wells will
gladly give you back your money.

that Investigations will be made of the

There are no specific charges.
Counsel for the two competing bid
ders, for the contract for printing the
money order forms, the bids which led
to Superintendent Metcalf'8 dismissal,
have been asked to submit their briefs
to the department as soon as possible
in order to enable early action on the
contract. Postmaster General Payne
said that he 'had made no final de
cision on Mr. Metcalf'8 appeal for the
reopening of his case.
When the pending investigation of
the affairs of the post ollice depart
ment shall have been completed a full
report of it will be made to President
Roosevelt by the postmaster general.
It Is understood to be the present in
tention of the president to make the
report public, accompanying it with a
statement of his own reviewing the
proceeding and making such comments
upon it as he may deem advisable.
The freneral belief now is that the
investigation will be closed, so far as
the cleaning out of the department is
concerned, possibly before the presi
dent leaves Washington for Ids sum
mer home at Oyster Bay, a few days
from now, and after that nothing will
be left but to try the accused ollieials
in the courts.

Belgrade, Servia, June 22. The for
rlgn minister, M. Kalievlcs, in an Inter
view expresses intense indignation at
the announcement from London that
the British minister has been instruct
ed to withdraw from Belgrade for some
time on the arrival here of King Peter.
The minister said it was inexplicable
why the British government intended
to make the provisional Servian minis
try responsible for the deplorable
events of the night of June 11. The
members of the present cabinet, lie
added, had really displayed great pa
triotism in coming to the aid of their
couutry in the sad crisis.
Milliliter Kalievlcs' statement was
made carefully for publication and
may bo regarded as an oliicial expres
sion of the view of the government.
The minister said:
"It Is with deep Indignation that we
find in a recent telegram from London
an indication that St is intended to hold
the present government responsible for
the deplorable events which occurred
on the sanguinary night of June 11 in
the royal palace. It is known that the
events of that night were carried out
by Servian officers who had resolved to
prevent tho probable proclamation of
the brother of Queen Praga as the suc
cessor to the throne. . -
Qneen Detented fay People.
"Tho fact that a woman was among
those who perished in the struggle pro
voked by the attack of an aid de camp
upon officers Is regrettable, more so as
her death was by no means necessary,
even though she bad been detested by
the whole Servian people from the mo
ment she presumed to place the crown
upon her unworthy head.
"The upheaval of June 11 was the
work of a large number of officers. The
consequences of the revolution, how
ever, were sanctioned by the whole
army and the whole people.
"With regard to the members of the
provisional government who were call
ed upon at a most critical moment to
take the reins of government in the
absence of nil other authority, they
only prove their patriotism and per
sonal courage by accepting so delicate
a mission as that which the people
unanimously and with gratitude sol
emnly confided to them. It is forgot
ten that tho. men composing the pres
ent government were drawn from ail
parties nnd were hitherto engaged iu
bitter political strife. Only devotion to
their conntrv could unite them at this
critical moment. Proof of tho fact
that tliey rendered great service to
their country is found in the peace and
order prevailing throughout the land, j
We have, therefore, good reason to re- j
gret the fact that an attempt is now ;
being made In England as the result j
of erroneous information to cast sus-1
pit-ion on a state of affairs which lias
for its object the maintenance of onbr
and the eventual regeneration of a
young nation which has passed through
a time of trial and which Is attached ,
to the cause of liberty and civlliza- :
tion." I

sent his credentials to the government j

that the trade between tlie United 1

embarrassment likely to follow the
failure to establish diplomatic rela

by Andrew II. McNeal of Burlinti n,
X. J., for the appointment of a re- -l,-,-i
for the United States Cast Iron Pip.,
and Foundry company, which has four
teen plants at different points through
out the United States, one of which h
located at Burlington. Other plains am
located at .Buffalo, Cleveland, Colum
bus. O.; Scottdale, Pa., and in Wise.m
tin, Kentucky and Alabama. The com
pany was incorporated about three
years ago, with an authorized capital of
$:,1hki.imk to make cast iron pipe and
foundry work.
McXeal In his bill of complaint
charges extravagance and mismanage
ment in the operation of the business of
the company- He further charges that
the company has been operated more
with a regard for the exploiting of the
company's stock in the stock market
than for the practical utilization of the
company's works; that from. Its organi
zation in the spring of l'l the compa
ny's management was dominated by
General Samuel Thomas, whoso princi
pal occupation, McXeal says, was that
of a promoter of companies and ex
ploiter of stocks.
McXeal further charges that since
the spring of 1001 the company was
dominated by its president, George B.
Hayes, whose associates, he alleges,
were financiers and exploiters of
stocks. It is averred that the plant at
Buffalo is operated at a los of 10u,fKXl
and that plants at West Superior,
Bridgeport, South Pittsburg and New
port were dismantled and rendered
useless and that these plants were ac
quired at excessive prices. It is also
charged that for the purpose of ex
ploiting stock statements to the public
were published showing nearly $1,000,
000 surplus, which, McXeal claims, is
not true.

Since the removal of Jett and White

the scene of the feud influence there
is considerable talk here of prosecu
