tW JftCQMP baJTI3T CHVBCH . KIM6S Hl6HWAf . JKN"l.Utf3TbwItvV I ODD GIFT TO 8T. LOUIS MAN BUILDING $40,000 TOWER. Decorative Shaft Copied From the Campanile at Venice To Be Made the Mott Beautiful in the West. St. Louis. One of the most remark able features of St. Louis will soon be "Lud's tower," an enormous structure which a citizen Is erecting at a cost of $40,000 on King's highway. Rising from one of the highest points in the city, it will be a conspicuous object from all parts of St. Louis, and it will probably perpetuate for all time the name of the gentleman who conceived the idea. "Lud's tower" will rise from the site of the new Second Iiaptlst church to a height of more than 200 feet. The cost of the structure will be more than $40,000. It has been named by mem bers of the Second Baptist congrega tion, who call It "Lud's tower," after the millionaire donor, F. H. Luding ton, of St. Louis. The style of the church which this campanile Is to overtop will be Lom bard gothlc. The structure is to be executed in brick and terra cotta. The roof will be of title. The brick will be deep yellow in color and the terra cot ta a buff. The main buildings of this new place of worship will be a church to the left of the campanile and a chapel to the right. The two struc tures will be connected by a loggin on the front and by two arcades on the east or in the rear. Midway between the two main edi fices and dividing the arcades and the loggia will rise the tower, to be com posed of the same materials as are used in the church and chapel. Around the base and in the open spaces be tween the chapel and church will be flower gardens, with a fountain in front. There will be an inclosed floral garden about 75 feet square. The tower will rise, narrowing slightly to almost the full height, and then will be topped with a spire. Most Beautiful in the West. It is the intention of the architects to make the tower the most beautiful In the West. The new church will be located on the west half of the square facing King's highway and ly ing between McPherson and Wash ington avenues. The complete struc ture is to cost about $250,000. The builders have studied the com panies of southwestern Europe and will attempt to incorporate their many beauties In the St. Louis tower. Mr. Ludington, who makes the campanile his donation to the church, was much impressed by the famous campanile in Venice which fell four years ago. The historic Campanile of Venice, after which "Lud's tower" is modeled, weathered ten centuries before it fell. It collapsed on the morning of July 14, 1902, and lay in a heap 100 feet high. A corner of the royal palace was torn, but St. Mark's and the doge's palace were unharmed. Lud's tower" will be so solidly con structed that the elements and age are not expected to Injure It for many centuries. It will have many windows and observation openings. The new St. Louis campanile will be o tall that it will dominate all the surrounding buildings. To the base of the spire It will be more than 15 stories high. Stairways will lead up this full distance. There will be eight floors finished and furnished for use. The second floor will be furnished for a meeting room for deacons and board members. St. John's Methodist church, imme diately across King's highway, will be completely overtopped by "Lud's tow er." Beautiful Forest park, near by, will be directly under the vision from the higher stories. When Lud's tower" Is completed (he photographer can take a better panorama of the new St. Louis, espe cially of the west end residence sec tion, than has ever before been taken from the roof of the highest west end Apartment or hotel. "I looked over the plans for the new church," Bald Mr. Ludington, "and I thought the edifice ought to be com plete. I did not know anything which would be more imposing than a cam panile and I suggested one, offering to pay the expense of it. "My only object In doing thie was to keep the church from being over shadowed by the big hotel to the north and to join the church and chapel edi fices In a harmonious group. "I think," said Mr. Ludington, "such a tower Is absolutely necessary to give the new church the proper architec A CHURCH tural finish. Aside from a feeling that, it was right for me to contribute my share toward the progress of the church I had at'ended so long 1 want ed to se the new buildings so Joined together as to add another attraction to the city." The windows of the tower will be of "art glass," the pattern conforming to the general style of architecture of the whole group of buildings and the interior finish will be in the same woodB, colors and marbles as are good in the church auditorium. The celling of the main auditorium will be in brown oak and the walls In warm-tinted plasters, relieved by mosaic stenciling in colors. The cler estory arches will be supported by green marble columns with dull glid ed capitals. The pulpit and choir gal lery are planned In carved and mold ed oak. The organ will be in the same wood. "Lud's tower" Is to be well lighted and the stairways constructed to make ascent easy. The windows will be placed at the landings, which are to be broad enough to permit many per sons to observe the surrounding sec tions of St. Louis at the same time. The base of "Lud's tower," 25 feet square, outside dimensions, will be of three fot six inch walls pf granite and brick, resting on a concrete founda tion with a seven-foot footing sunk seven feet below the grade. The thickness of the walls will leave the inside dimensions about 18 feet square. The tower is to taper upward to a belfry, the base of which will be 18 inches smaller than the base of the structure. Chimes in the Belfry. The belfry will be 18 feet in diam eter, and ocvagonal in shape. The floor of the belfry will be concrete. The tower will weigh 3,250,000 pound! and Mr. Garden of the firm of architects says it will be strong enough to support the weight of bells or of a single big bell and to resist the strain of the sounding either. He be lieves chimes will be Installed, al though that has not been definitely decided.

Foster of Kansas City, Mo., using an anesthetic of his own discovery, assisted by Dr. John Young Brown of this city, has performed four operations at the city hospital which bid fair to work a revo lution in surgical science. In all of the operations the patients were perfectly conscious during the ordeal, talked to the operator and watched his movements closely. One "f the operations was for strangulated hernia, a most delicate and dangerous undertaking. Despite the gravity of the operation it was performed quick ly, successfully and without pain to the patient. Dr. Foster has not yet announced the lngrtdientB in the manufacture of his new "pain killer." It Is not dan gerous and the evil resultB to be feared from administering ether and chloroform need not be feared. Persons with a weak heart and other constitutional weaknesses can go under the knife without fear. Those who saw the operations are convinced that Dr. Foster has made a discovery which will prove of Incal culable value to mankind. I SL " i,ts'i'" 'ff!

If you want to live to be a hundred years old and never feel old, live exclusively on pea soup, Is what Henry Tabor is telling, all his neighbors. Mr. Tabor isn't a centenarian, but as he Is 92 and feela as chipper as a boy of a dozen years, he expects to round out more than 100. Mr. Tabor was born in Montreal In 1814, and since the spring of 1879 he lias lived almost entirely upon pea soup. When he took to this diet he was suffering from what doctors said was cancer of the stomach. They told him that he had only a short time to live, and his general appearance bore out this statement. He was pale, wan and weak, for he could retain lit tle nourishment and had little hope of ever recovering his health. One day a vender of herbs told him that he could prolong his life by eat ing pea soup, and Mr. Tabor prompt ly tried it. The food "set" well, and at the end of a week he had gained a pound, as well as some strength. He felt encouraged, and kept on with the soup, little by little discarding all other articles of diet. Ultimately he regained his full health and became as hardy as a knot. On several occasions the man at tempted to eat cereals and meats, but each time he was made ill, so he stuck to soup, and now and then meals of peas baked after the manner of beans. Once a week Mr. Tabor eats a little fruit, but outside of this his diet is made up of peas. of the Jews. wall at Jerusalem which Is known as gather to recite the lamentations and away at the conquest of Titus. To Tax All Titles in France. Paris. The chamber of deputies hai been busy discussing and voting new taxes in connection with the budget After voting a tax of eight shillings pel annum on upright pianos and 16 sbll lings per annum on grand pianos, ai well as a tax of $20 per annum on all kinds of hand organs, the chamber dls cussed a proposal to tax the transmls sion of titles of nobility when Inherit ed as well aB a tax on all persons now using titles in France. The president of the chamber, speaking for the gov ernment, said that the tax would be levied on all the titles of the old mon archlal nobility that were still In use and also on the titles conferred by Na poleon I. and Napoleon III, Present users of titles would be required tc prove their right to make use of such titles.

Remarkable Excuse Put Forward by French Bigamist. At Versailles, France, recently baker was tried on a charge of polyg- he had not the courage to say no. Neither money nor love, he Bald, had prompted his nuptials; he was the I victim of the stronger wills of his successive spouses. Of the five wives three appeared as witnesses, but did not prosecute, saying that their com- mon husband was a toper of whom they were glad to get rid. He was acquitted on what ground does not appear. As all the years In which the multiplex husband took wives were leap years except 1881, In which It would seem that in four out of the five cases the women had the right to propose. But the man had the right, even In the leap years, to decline, and it was up to him ic least to explain to his fair suitors Oxat he was engaged. To establish tht pMn clple that a man Is not responsible for the number of his wives, unless he himself does the courting, would be plainly against public policy. If "Barkis is willln'," that at once puts all the responsibility on him, no matter who managed the prelimi naries. AWFUL EFFECT OF ECZEMA. Covered with Yellow 8ores Grew Worse Parents Discouraged Cu tlcura Drove Sores Away. "Our little girl, one year and a half old, was taken with eczema or that was what the doctor called it. We called in the family doctor, and he gave some tablets and said she would be all right In a few days. The eczema grew worse and we called In doctor No. 2. He said she was teething, as soon as the teeth were through she would be all right But she still grew worse. Doctor No. 3 said It was eczema. By this time she was nothing but a yellow, greenish sore. Well, he said he could help her, so we let him try It about a week. One morning we discovered a little yellow pimple on one of her eyes. Of course we 'phoned for doctor No. 3. Ho came over and looked her over, and said that he could not do anything more for her, that we had better take her to some eye specialist, since it was an ulcer. So we went to Oswego to doctor No. 4, and he said the eye sight was gone, but that he could help It. We thought we would try doctor No. 5. Well, that proved the same, only he charged $10 more than doctor No. 4. We were nearly dis couraged. I saw one of the Cutl cura advertisements in the paper and thought we would try the Cuticura Treatment, so I went and purchased a set of Cuticura Remedies, which cost me $1, and in three days our daughter, who had been sick about eight months, showed great improve ment, and in one week all sores had disappeared. Of course it could not restore the eyesight, but if we had used Cuticura in time I am confident that it would have saved the eye. We think there is no remedy so good for any skin trouble or Impurity of the blood as Cuticura. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Abbott, R. F. D. No. 9, Fulton, Os wego Co., N. Y., August 17, 1906." No Longer Novel. When James P. Magenis was chief deputy in the internal revenue service he was stricken with a severe attack of typhoid fever, and it was some weeks before he was able to resume bis duties. Before his illness his hair was lux uriant, but after it a bald spot besan to show, which was noticed by a dep uty, who speke to him about it. "Pardon me, Jim," he said, "but you are getting bald, and you know a bead of hair like yours is quite a novelty these days." "Yes," said Magenis, "I have been told my hair was quite a novelty, but do you know," he said, and a gleam of fun was In his eye, "I no tice since my illness, that every time I run my hand over the top of my head the novelty is wearing off." Thoroughly Reliable. If ever there was a reliable and safe remedy it is that old and famous por ous plaster Allcock's. It has been in use for sixty years, and is as popular to-day as ever and we doubt if there Is a civilized community on the face of the globe where this wonderful pain reliever cannot be found. In the selec tion of the Ingredients and in their manufacture the greatest care Is taken to keep each plaster up to the highest standard of excellence, and so pure and simple are the Ingredients that even a child can use them. Allcock's are the original and gen uine porous plasters and are sold by Druggists all over the world. Japanese Hot batna. In Japan hot baths are used at a temperature of 104 degress.

Hans Zuzel, an Austrian chemist, la said to have perfected an incandescent lamp which is made of filaments of cheap material, but of great durability and capable of burning 3,600 hours.

Any bodily weakness caused by a deficiency In the blood can be cured by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Fills because these pills actually make new blood. After attacks of the grip the blood Is generally run down and the patient continues to decline. "About three years ago," says Mrs. Jennie Cowan, of 718 N. Henry Street, West Bay City, Mich., "I caught a severe cold, which ran Into the grip. I was confined to my bed for two weeks. At the end of that time I was able to be about, but was completely run down. I was so weak I could hardly stand, my cheekB had no color and I felt faint. My heart would flutter and it was difficult for me to breathe at times. Neuralgia settled In the back of my head and stomach and I suffered from rheuma tism In my shoulders. "I had the care of the best doctor in town but became no better until a friend told me one day how she had been cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I decided to try them.

Plans for the propaRatlon of the American buffalo were discussed at a recent meeting of the American Bison Association in New York. It wna stated that there were 2,250 in North America, of which 1,400 are In the United States, and that In view of tho rapidity with which the animals have decreased In recent years it was ai gued they will soon become extinct unless effectual steps are taken to foBter them. The society decided to make an ef fort to purchase practically all tho re maining buffaloes In this country nnd Canada and present them to tho United States government. Dy so do ing It hopes the government will set BBlde large tracts of land where tho bison may be raised on a large scale. The society decided to look Into the practicability of locating several herds of buffaloes on the Flathead Indian reservation In northwestern Montana, and In the Crow reservation in south western Wyoming. Morton J. Elrod, of the University of Montana, will bo asked to report to the society upon the possibilities of the Flathead reservation.
