Strenuous Life Leaves its Mark On The
President. Of Fifteen Wounds Only
One Received in Battle.
(Chicago Uhronicle.)
Theodore Roosevelt en, ,.. 3 the dis
tinction of being the most wounded
President. who ever eat in the seat
of George Washington. From the
days of the father of his country to
the present time no man who has
known so many bumps, bruises, scars
and wounds has presided over the
destinies of the nation. And of all
these numerous marks of the strenu
ous life but one was received upon
the field of battle. Foot ball, single
stick, trolley cars, bucking bronchos,
fencing swords, vicious horses and
grizzly bears have all had more or
less to do with marring the form of
the nation's Chief Executive. Since
he reached instihood he has received
no fewer than lifteen serious injuries
and seems to make no effort to keep
from adding to the list.
The dash and vigor of Theodore
oosevelt's lauching days in the
)akotas have never entirely left him.

innumerable. Onme time (luring the

Mr Roosevelt himself once told the
story thus:
'I waited unti, the Indians were

"The effect was like magic. The

ed. After consultation one came
forward alone, dropping his rifle and
waving a blanket over his head.
When he came within fifty yards I
stopped him. He called:
"'liow! Mo good Indian!'
"1 answered '-Iow!' and assured
him I was very glad he was a 'good
Indian,' but he must not come any
closer. W1 hen his companions beg
god to come nearer 1 covered him
with my rifle and made him move
off, which he did with a sudden lapse
into the most comical Anglo.Saxon
"I led my horse out to the prairie
while they havered around. But
they finally made off and 1 hurried
away in the opposite direction."
In the summer of 1S91 Mr. Roose
volt was visiting his North Dakota
ranch. lIo tried to ford the ILittle
Missouri on horseback. The horse
broko through into an alkali quick
sand and the ranchman, then a
United States civil service commis
sioner, was rescued just in timle to
escape drowning.
In this same region he once lost
his way at night in o very rongh bit
of country. lie dismounted and,
loading his horse, was seeking his
way out. It wus pitch dark and
he did not know the lay of the land.
Suddenly the earth gave way and
horse and man went. rolling and
tumnblilig dowtn a 100 foot embank

which was still many feet froti the
bottom of the ravine.
13otlh reached the ledge at. about
the same time, but by the greatest bit
of good fortune the man fell on the
horse. He was bruisott and a bit
frightened and stayed on the ledge
till daylight, afraid to try fum ther
explorations in the darkness.
These are but a few of the roman

hands of his intimate friend, Gen.
Leonard Wood, in single stick rapier
play, which they 4sed as exercise
almost daily.
A few weeks ago Gen. Woo'
thrust his rapier through the Presi

on the forehead and narrowly miss.
ing his left eye.
A week later the two friends were
in a vigorous bout with the single
sticks in the improvised gymnasium
near the top of the White House.
The play became rather heated and
in the rapid play the President
caught a heavy out on the wrist. He
said it amounted to nothing, but
further play was postponed.
As a result of this mishap the ath
lotic President was unable to indulge
in any of his favorite sports for sev.
oral weeks.
The South Carolina Senator Ready to Force
an Extra Session of Both Houses if the
War Claim was not Paid.
Washington, March 8.-Senator
Tillman caused a flutter in the Sen
ate at 10 o'clock to night by an
nouncing his intention of defeat the
naval appropriation bill and the gen
eral deficiency bill. This determin
ation was the result of an announce
mont from the conference room on the
general deficiency bill to the effect
that the House conferees had refused
to accept the Senate amendment pro
viding for the payment of the South
Carolina State claim of $47,245. The
Senator had a stack of books beside
his desk almost as high as the desk,
while on the lesk reposed a volume
of Byron's poem opens at "The Via
1011 of J udgement."
"It is a just claim and must go
in," he said, "or I will defeat both the
remaining bills and force an extra
session of Loth houses of Congress.
I can talk until 12 o'clock to-morrow,
and that is all that is necessary for
the accomplishment of my purpose.
Washington, March 4.--The con
ferees on the general deficiency bill
have agreed, the amendment for
which Senator Tillman contended, to
pay the claim of the State of South
Carolina, being accepted by the House
conferees. This breaks the deadlock
and the naval bill and general de.
ticiency bill will probably pass the
Senate and n)e aont to the House to

Cod liver oil is .in universal re
pute as the best body builder in
wasting diseases, and the best
reconstructor in recovery from
severe sickness known to medicine.
Nevertheless, three-fourths of
the people are really made sick by
the taste and smell of cod liver oil.
Half of them can't take it. Their
stomachs either reject it, or are so
upset by it that the dose does
more harm than good.
Vinol is the only preparation of
cod liver oil which contains no
grease or bad taste yet does con
tain all the virtue of cod liver
oil, and is deliciously palatable. It
also contains organic iron. Iron
gives quality to the blood. Almost
every ailing person needs it.
The combination of these two
elements with table wine is both
scientific and effective. It has
accomplished wonderful things
right here in town. We think
we are doing a service to every
run-down, ailing, coughing, ner
vous, debiltated person in calling
attention to Vinol. We sell it on
its merits -money back if it does
not help you. You run no risk.
Old people revive under its influ
ence. Nursing mothers and over
worked people get new vitality.
