WORKING UNDER AGREEMENT Chicago Elevated Lines Not Involved in Threatened Strike. Chicago, Aug. 5 —If the threatened strike on the surface street car lines of Chicago takes place the public may still depend on the four elevated lines. The heads of the elevated lines de clared that their employes are work ing under a perfectly satisfactory agreement which has a year more to run. "The effect of a strike on the sur face lines," said Mason B. Starring, president of the Northwestern Elevat ed, "would be merely to increase the truffle on the elevated lines. There la not the slightest chance of our men going out in sympathy with the sur face men." There are nearly 1,000 miles of sur face lines In Chicago, however, and a tie-up, despite all that the elevated roads could do, would entail great Inconvenience, particularly In many sections not reached by the overhead system. In addition the strike would cost the city millions of dollars ID loas of business. Airship With Rowing Attachment.

ALSO APPEALS 10 POWERS Demands That Greek Officers Now in Crete Be Recalled and Intimates That This Friendly Request Will Be Followed, Unless Satisfaction Is Obtained, by More Energstte Ac tion on Her Part. Constantinople, Aug. 6.—Greece has replied to the Turkish note which, al though couched in friendly tcrm3, practically demands the recall of the 'Jroek officers serving in Crete, to the effect that the question Is in the lands of the four protecting powers pf Crete, with whose knowledge and consent the officers in yuostion were sent to the island. Turkey is appeal ing to the four powers and she inti mates that her friendly request to •Jreece will be followed, unless satis faction is obtained, by a more ener getic demand. The report that Turkey has dis patched transports with troops on board to Crete is denied, but it seems probable that the Turkish fleet now nuneuvering in the nighborhood of Rhodes will proceed to Cretan waters. In this event the British admiral, Sir Douglas Gamble, in command of the fleet, would hand over his charge to a Turkish admiral. Sir Douglas, a British officer, has been engaged, with the permission of his government, in reorganizing the Ottoman navy.

District At torney Jerome read passages regard ing paranoia from several medical au thorities, these having a seeming ap plication to Thaw, and the witness expressed his agreement. Dr. Mac Donald concluded by declaring that Thaw now suffered from "paranoia of the degenerate type." By "degen erate." he explained, was meant a per son who has never attained the nor mal type. He pronounced Thaw in curable. The witness said that the regularity of life at Matteawan might improve Thaw's condition, although it could not affect a cure. On the other hand, he said, the continuance of such a life as the evidence indicated Thaw's to have been would tend to rouse Into activity the delusions which have been partially veiled.

NW fork, Aug. 6.—Mrs. N«*IU« Cnrtlo declares that the bullet which she fired from her little 22-caliber re volver and which slightly injured Wil liam D. Craig in a corridor of the Waldorf-Astoria was intended for her selt. Mrs. Castle's statement was made at police headquarters, where she was taken before arraignment after a nteht in the Tombs prison. Heavily veiled and apparently labor Irig under a severe mental strain, Mrs. Castle was taken to headquarters for the usual inspection in the detective bulieau. The indignity of being photo graphed and measured was spared her. To the officers of the bureau Mrs. Castle talked freely about herself and the train of events which led up to the sensational climax. She went over her stage experience, which, she said, began In San Francisco, where she appeared In the "Girl of the Gol den West." Craig, who is a lawyer practicing in this city, she said she had known since he was a child. Denying the imputation that she had forced her attentions on him she declared that on the other hand he had been fol lowing her so persistently for the last five months that she was afraid he would compromise her.

"The affection may result from errpre in diet, or the use of alcohol. Tiie ex cessive use of tobacco, especially when the juice or the leaves are swallowed* is likely to cause it. "Highly seasoned or coarse, irritating foods, sometimes induce the disease. "As chronic gastritis (catarrh of tha stomach) is essentially a secondary affection, one of the primary cause® is an unhealthy state of the mouth, nose or throat, such as bad teeth or catarrh of the nose (ozena). "The patients are usually poorly nourished, pale, sallow, thin, fatigue easily induced, muscles llahhy. LoMI of appetite or capricious appetite. "The tongue is usually coated brown ish gray. Cankered month is a com mon occurrence. "Pain is not common. When present it is usually dull, and is aggravated by food, especially when this is of an irr i tating character. "Vomiting may occur in the morning. Also after meals. Sickness to the stoni* ach frequent and persistent. "Food produces dull headache, and feeling of general nervous distress. Constipation usually quite marked." These symptoms, given by Gould and Pyle, coincideexactly with thefrequent descriptions I)r. Hartman is receiving from pationtsall over the United States. If you have any of these symptom* get a bottle of Peruna. Take a dose be fore each meal.
