Proprietary Medicines. are usually the result of the wholesale preparation of some mothers' recipe or doctor's prescription which has been found especially successful in relieving the. ailments for which it is prepared, and which has stood the test of time. Such is Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, originally prepared from roots and herbs for female ills by Lydia E. Pinkham of Lynn, Mass. For nearly forty years it has proven a great bene factor to the women of America in re lieving female diseases of every nature. Its wonderful success proves its merit. New York, June 3. The waiters' sirike still continues to harass hotel keepers. It is estimated now that near ly 5,000 waiters are out. Three hundred struck last night in the Empire and Navarre hotels, I'abst-t' Harlem restaurant and the New Weston apartment hotel.

Six strikers were arrested Saturday charged with rioting and fined $10. They were warned that a repetition of the ollense would mean a prison sentence. The hotel men refused to arbitrate, declaring that they would close every city hotel rather than accede to the strikers' demands.

Spauld ing, the Brattleboro (Vt.) aviator, had n notmtr hu'im from death in an acci dent attending a flight in his Curtis biplane from the Athol fair grounds about 5:30 Saturday afternoon. Spauld irif was in the machine manufactured by ("apt. Baldwin. He flew to the south ami when over a lot of trees near Lake Fllis the machine struok some dead air. Finding that the biplane would not work Veil, Spaulding attempted to descend. Ho did not shut his engine off until about 50 or 75 feet from the ground, when the biplane almost turned over, and in alighting, fell in the middle of a field. Spaulding was fortunately able to stay on top of the machine and so did nol" receive anv injury, but the biplane, which is valued at from $5.0(M1 to $H.0(0, was badly wrecked.

Chicago, June 3. Chicago is now the storm centre of the nation. Presidential nomination managers packed their papers and personal be longings Saturday, closing headquarters in Washington, to centre their batteries in this city for the big Republican show, and other prominent politicians are al ready on the ground. The preliminary skirmishes for control of the Republican national convention on June 18 will be staged in earnest here, starting to-day. William B. McKinley, director-general of the Taft campaign committee, ar rived here yesterday to take up the light at the Congress hotel headquar ters, which are ready for the president's champions. The Roosevelt generals arc to follow to-day. Senator Dixon of Montana, the Roosevelt chief in the cam paign field, is to come on fresli from an interview with Col. Roosevelt. The Roosevelt Washington headquarters also are to be transferred to the Congress hotel. Republican national committeemen will begin to drift in here about Tues day to make ready for the bearing of the 00 odd contests to be decided in making up the temporary roll of the convention. This is a bitter and all in portant fight, as many believe con trol of the convention rests in the con tested seat decisions. Lawyers with briefs bearing on the merits of the con tests are coming to argue before the national committee, which will sit as a judicial body. Taft managers are confident as ever that Col. Roosevelt will appear on the scene to direct hia fight personally. They say his denials have become weak er as tlie time for action arrives. Senator La Follettc is coming here and may put in an appearance next week. He is to have headquarters in the Crand Pacific hotel. Senator Cmn mings, who, like La Follette, has a block of instructed delegates, has head quarters now in the Rector building, where the Cummins club is camped. La Follette and Cummins are hoping for a deadlock and figuring on the pos sibility of filling in as deadlock break ers, i-ay the politicians. Unless the program is changed, the proceedings of the Republican national committee on the contests over dele gates before the committee will be open ly conducted, something not heretofore the rule and now loudly called for by the Roosevelt people. This information eomes from a member of the national committee on the Taft side and the decision is a very wise one, as it will rirmit the public to know just what happened in the committee, what were th merits of the contests, and will de prive Theodore Roosevelt entirely of op portunity to say that he was robbed of delegates by a conspiracy of national committeemen acting in secret. $390,000 SUITS FOR LIVES LOST WITH TITANIC Actions to Be Filed in Indiana and Illi nois for Heirs of 39 Foreign Vic tims Consults Direct Litigation.

The Russian and Bulgarian consuls in Chicago have 30 people for whom suit will be brought, in each case the damage asked being $10,000.
