"I was treated by many different doctors -and they gave me many dif ferent medicines, and I even spent several years in exile from my home, thinking change of scene might do me good. You may judge of the grav ity of my condition when I tell you 1 was sometimes compelled to use mor phine for weeks at a time.

THE GROCER TOMORROW STEARNS HITCHCOCK IS IN BAD AT WHITE HOUSE BECAU8E OF HIS ACTION IN FA VORING GOVERNMENT OWN ERSHIP OF TELEGRAPHS. Washington, Jan. 15 After Post master General Hitchcock had been in conference with President Taft for more than an hour today an authorita tive statement was made at the White House that there had been no friction between the president and the post n. aster general over the latter's pro posed recommendation that the gov ei iment acquire and operate all tele graph lines as an adjunct of the pro posed system. Postmaster General Hitchcock who last night gave out a statement say ing he would recommend to congress government ownership and operation of all telegraph lines, was summoned to the White House by President Taft shortly after 11 o'clock this morning. The pronouncement in favor of gov ernment ownership and operation of the telegraph lines as an adjunct of the postoffice department stirred offi cial Washington as few administrative acts have in recent years. The post master general's statement was news to the White House and is said to have caused the greatest surprise there. This was evident w(hen efforts were made late last night to recall the announcement. These efforts, however, did not come from Hitch cock. He was out of the city when the statement was released and uiu not return until late last night. Then he went immediately to nis apart ments and would not be disturbed. Senators and representatives gen erally did not learn of the proposed recommendation until they read the papers today. When they reached the capitol all were discussing the matter and many divergent views were ex pressed. Most generally discussed St all the reports early today was that pressure might be brought to bear on Mr. Hitchcock not to make the recom mendation. So far the matter has not progressed beyond a declaration by the postmaster general that he would make such a recommenuation to con gress, with a statement by him giving reasons for the proposed acquisition of the telegraph-lines. The postmastsT general wajj late jn reacning his office this morning al though there were many urgent calls for him. There was no disposition at the capital today to avoid any serious consideration of the proposed plan. "The question of government owner ship of public utilities is a great one that needs long and careful consider;1 tion," said Representative Moon o. Tennessee, chairman of the postofllce committee. "If Postmaster General Hitchcock's plans are embodied in a bill to be introduced in congress and the bill comes to this committee it cer- tianly will be given a thorough inves tigation. Suah a proposal never has been before congress that I knovt of." There was a disposition among some senators today to credit the report that Mr. Hitchcock's action4 might mean a break between him and Presi dent Taft and an alignment of Mr. Hitchcock with those who are urging the candidacy of Colonel Theodore Roosevelt for the republican presiden tial nomination. This, however, was but one of half a hundred theories discussed about the Capitol. $1500 PART CASH, BALANCE ON TIME will buy a good two story frame house, 7 rooms and bath, corner lot, sidewalks in on both streets, excel lent location; easily worth 1 2,000 Better hurry if you want to take advantage of this bargain.
