POISONS THAT IRRITATE , ' When the delicate machinery of the body is not working harmoniously, poi sons are retained that should be expelled. These may accumulate in tiie tissues and cause irritation. Should this irritation affect joints or muscles you have rheu matism; if. a nerve becomes inflamed you have neuralgia But if the system is kept toned up 'with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and no body poisons are retained, foods that once dis tressed you will lie harmless, exposure will bring no rheumatism and neuralgia and even germ diseases need hardly be dreaded. The lowering of the tone of the system which results from thin blood is easy to recognire. Weakness is always pres ent, a tendency to perspire and fatigue easily, ringing in the ears, black spots passing before the eyes, weak back, dizzi ness, wakefulness and unrefreshing sleep. These conditions Dr. Wiilijns' Pink Pills will correct. Dr. Williams Pink Pills build np the Wood and strengthen the nerves.

N. Y., forfreebook "Build ing Up the Blood." To-Night Boston Grand Opera Stars in Barre Opera House. By far the most important musical event of the entire season, if not of sev eral seasons, will be the engagement to night in the opera house of the remark able company of Boston grand opera stars wiucn lias created sucn a sensa tion throughout New England. The pub lic is familiar with the great world- famed artists who will appear, Maria DiGabbi, the brilliant prima donna so prano, Evelyn Parnell, the season's big sensation as a coloratura soprano, Giovanni Gatti and Luigi Mianiero, two wonderful tenors, Nikola Oulukonoff, the famous Russian baritone, Ernestine Gau thier, the charming prima donna contral to, Edgnr Littleton, the splendid Ameri can basso, and Maestro (Jeorge Hirst, assistant conductor of the Boston Opera company. All of these are in particular ly fine voice, and prepared to furnish the musical treat of a lifetime. There will not be a single disappointment either in the artists advertised, or in the pro gram which has been announced. This I program will consist of three parts, the . concert part, the ballet dancing part and ' the opera. The concert numbers, eight i I II in all, will be sung in evening dress, while the opera, "La Traviata." will be sung in four acts with costumes and scenery. The dancing numbers will prove a real delight. The young Indies, pre miere dancers from the Boston Opera company ballet, are not only beautiful as to face and form, but they are adepts in the terpsichorean art. The exquisite ly beautiful '"Dance of the Hours'' from Giocomla will be given complete, also portions of Copelia and Silvia. Three chances of costume are made, from the regulation ballet costume to the flowing Grecian robes which garb most of the classic dancers. Perhaps the host known dancer to-night is Mabelle Patten, who previous to her live seasons as a solo dancer at the Ronton opera house, won fame as a marvelous child dancer. While there has been a spirited ad vance sale lor to-night's performance, there are some very desirable seats re maining, and at the lowest prices ever charged for such an entertainment before. Adv.

ROGERS ROGERS & COMPANY: WALK-OVER BOOT SHOP CLOTHING, SHOES, HATS AND FURNISHINGS ern lumber, was made Saturday before the Senate interoceanic canals commit tee by A. D. Skinner, a lumber dealer of Seattle, Wash. He declared that the situation should be .viewed from ti.e standpoint that exemption from tolls was a subsidy to ship owners, but that inicositioa of tolls was an embargo on coastwise shipping through the canal. Senator Simmons si North Carolina introduced after Mr. Skinner's testi mony, a letter from Robert Brookin. a Pacific coast lumberman, who dc-l.-vn-d the imposition of tolls would have little or no etfect uon the Pacific coast lum ber trade. Mr. Skinner in reply, ttafed Brookins mills were not oeaK-d on har bors that could K- used vy ve--! pass ing through the canal. The commit tec will conclude iis Tear ing? on the bill to-day, "ti-oi'd'iig to the present aureement. Jlt will be a cruel discrimination against American coastwise ships to re quire them to pay tolls wnen the ships of other nations will have their tolls paid from the pnblic treasury," said Sen ator (lalliiiger of New Hampshire in a seech opjnwing adoption of his resolu tion which would bar from the canal all foreign ships granted subsidies or given bounties in case Congress repeals the tolls exemption provision applying to American coastwise ships. Senator Poindexter Saturday with drew from the Congressional Kecord a letter from a New York organization opposed to the repeal of the free to!) provision which several senators held infringed the Senate rule. ft
