At Philadelphia General Assem bly Takes Up Question of REVISION OF THEIR CREED. Titty of the 233 Mrmtx'ra Ak IHmmlfWiil of Subject Many Ak KevUlon or an Kxpliiniitory Statement An Imll.tn Out break Looked for In Wyoming. Revision of l'remliyterlan Confession. The important question of revising the creed, which for the last two years has been agitating the Presbyterian church, came before the general as sembly at Philadelphia on the C3cL The controversy regarding revision has led to the formation of three groups among tho G10 commissioners to the general assembly. One group opposes change in doctrinal standards. An other is desirous of setting aside the confession of faith as not truthfully expressing the belief of the church. The third favors maintaining the old confession with a few modifications, and desires the adoption of a clear ''declarative" statement, setting forth the most important doctrines. In an swer to the questions submitted to tho presbyteries, .11 asked the assembly to dismiss the whole subject, one was un decided, four said they neither desired a revision nor a supplemental state ment, nor the dismissal of the whole subject, and of the 233 presbyteries, 1.1 in the U. S. and 1 in foreign lands, failed to respond. Of the remaining presbyteries, nearly two-thirds of the whole number ask for some change in the ereedal statement, 17 desire a re vision of the confession, 11 an explan atory statement, 1 revision and au ex planatory statement, .12 a supplemental statement. 1.1 revision and a supple mental statement, 1 an explanatory statement and a supplemental state ment, 14 a snbititut,' creed, 1 an alter native creed, and some change, not speeilied. The Presbyterian general assembly, by a vote which showed conclusively that a revision of the confession of faith is deired by the church, on the 24th defeated the amendment dismiss ing the whole subject offered the day before by Kev. (Jeo. 1). Uaker. of Phila delphia. The assembly decided by au overwhelming majority to continue consideration of the great question. li.i-.lly Scene! In Albany. Klectrie cars racing for a switch while running in opostte directions at the rate of 40 miles an hour, cost live lives on the afternoon of the L'f.th, by a terrific collision in which over 41 prominent people were injured, some fatally and others seriously. The scene of the accident was a point about two miles out of (ireenbush, X. Y., on tho line of the Albany fc Hudson rail way. The point where the cars met on the single track was at a sharp curve and so fast were both cars run ning and so sudden was the collision that the motormen never had time to put on the brakes before the crash came. The lobby of the local postofiice tilled with dead and wounded, hyster ical women and children looking for relatives and friends, surgeons admin istering temporary relief and am bulances racing through the city tak ing the wounded to the hospitals were the early intimations of the accident.

Carncffle'fl Ilia: (ilft ;( a Cold Welcome. Scotland is not very enthusiastic over Andrew Carnegie's gift of S10,0()(), 000 to establish free education in four Scotch universities, IMinburg, (Ilas gow, Aberdeen and St, Andrews. Car negie stipulated that the beneficiaries be his "Scotch fellow countrymen" onl3, no English, Irish, colonials or foreigners. According to the educa tion authorities tho administration of Mr. Carnegie's gift presents consider able difficulties and for this reason the Scotch papers for the present, are rather looking tho gift horse in the mouth, while the English press is in clined to cavil at the method of Mr. Carnegie's munificence.

Allen'n l lrnt Annual Kcport. Oov. Charles 11. Allen, of Porto Rico, has presented to the President, through the state department, his first annual report. lie expresses the opinion that a scheme of colonial administration, such as is found in the Danish, French and English West Indies, might bo safely instituted with variations de pendent upon the future policy of the home government. The governor re fers to the many suggestions offered that the form of territorial govern ment adopted by the V. S. be applied to Porto Pico, but points out that a standard form of such government, while useful in the U. S. , would not apply successfully to this island pos session. He calls attention to the fact that while in such close proximity to the U. S. Porto Pico lias been a com paratively unknown island to Ameri cans. In conclusion, Oov. Allen urged the introduction of fresh blood and Anglo-Saxon puh and energy as the means of lifting the little island out of its lethargy, and by thrift and in dustry, tlevilop its riches to their full measu re.

Artificial silk apparently can be made, but It answers to the real thing as oleomargarine answers to butter. Going the rounds of the papers of Con tinental Europe is an Item that three factories for the production of artifi cial silk are in operation; that one, in Wolstcn, England, produces C.COO pounds a week; ' ono In Besancon, France, 12,000 pounds, and one in Spreltcnbach, Germany, 3,500 pounds. It is stated, furthermore, that other factories will soon be built in Belgium and in Germany. Before tho Frankfort Society of Natural Philosophy Dr. Freund, In a recent lecture on the sub ject, said that though artificial silk can compete with natural silk, It is not as valuable. Artificial silk has been used aa a covering for cables and as a substitute for horsehair, but it has a tendency to break if wetted.and, there fore, It must usually be mixed with natural silk and cotton. The artificial silk is cheaper than the natural, and more brilliant effects can be produced with it. This industry, which is said to be purely chemical, Is expected to bo developed to its fulleset extent in a few years. New York Press. Verdict Meant De.ttli. Aldrlch, Mo., May 27th.

She says that the disease first manifested Itself by tho appearance of dark spots floating before her eye. Her nerves were so bad that many times they would collapse completely, and she would fall down as If shot. Tho fact that Dodd's Kidney Pills saved her after four doctors had given her up. has caused no end of talk In this neighborhood, and all are loud in their praises of this new remedy Dodd's Kidney Pills which is curing so many hitherto incurable cases, in this state and elsewhere.

Anderson was CS years old and his brldo 74 when they eloped to Parkcrs burg last month and were married there. They had known each other only two days, but in that time he had learned the lesson ho had so often and so easily learned before, and she, see ing In him, no doubt, tho realization of a lifetime's longing, accepted him as soon as ho proposed. He repre sented that ho was drawing a pension. She was also receiving a pension, but aa he was drawing support from tho government ehe willingly gave up hors for him. After tho honeymoon was over the old man fell ill, and the wife's devotion to him was remarkable. But as lime woro on she began to suspect that ho was not all ho represented himself to be. The tlrao to fill out vouchors for his pension came anl went and he neglected to attend to hl.s. She began a senrch through his pockets after the papers, and the first thlnir fchc found wp.s his written con fession that ho had boon married 1G times before he sr.w her. That took all tho glamor of the married life which she had hop" d would bring her happiness, and when he added that nearly all cf the preceding 10 are alive and well she bundled him bodily out of the house and had him taken to tho poorhouse, where she would no longer have to support him. She then in structed her lawyer to bring suit for divorce. Chicago- Journal.

Is it a wonder, therefore, that tho doctor fails to euro the disease ? Still wo cannot blamo tho woman, for it is very em barrassing to detail somo of tho symptoms of her suffering, even to her family physician. This is tho reason why hundreds of thousands of women aro now in corre spondence with Mrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, 31 ass. To her they can give every symptom, bo that when she is ready to adviso them sho is in possession of more facts from her correspondence with tho patient than tho physician can possibly obtain through a personal interview.

Mrs. Ella Rice, Chelsea, Wis., writes: Dear M its. Pinkoam: For two years I was troubled with falling and inflammation of the womb. I suffered very much with bearing-down pains, headache, backache, and was not able to do anything. What I endured no one knows but those who have suffered as I did. I could hardly draff myself across the floor. I doctored with the physicians of this town for three months and grew worse instead of better.

I received an answer at ouce advising me to take your Vegetable Compound, and I did so.
