Of all the diseases known, with which
the female organism is afflicted, kidney

Performances Equal the Prom
ises That Were Made
DURBAR OF DELHI FEATURE
THE MORNING OREGONIAN, TUESDAY, AUGUST 22, 1905.
Hippodrome Events, Largo 3fcnag-
erie and All Incidents Which
Go to Make Up Show
Are Not Lacking.
The first visit of Barnum & Bailey's
to Portland trill Ion be remembered here
for It set a new standard for circus ex
cellence. The performances given yester
day and last night and to be repeated
twice today, are the best ever seen under
canvas. To a remarkable extent the show
comes up to advance notices.
A.t the matinee yesterday there were 14.
SS1 tickets taken up at the main entrance,
and the night more than 16,000, the
mammoth main tent being crowded to
Its utmost capacity. All records of circus
attendance In this city are broken and
It seems probable that the occurrence of
yesterday will be duplicated today. In
all more than 31,000 attended the two per
formances yesterday, exceeding all rec
ords of the circus since Its season opened.
The performance yesterday afternoon
began promptly with the spectacle known
as the "Durbar at Delhi." a reproduction
jof the memorable pageant that passed In
review before the Viceroy and Vlcrelne
of India on the occasion of the coronation
of King Edward VII. It is a beautiful
spectacle, produced under the direction
of Boloesy Klralfy, who has spent the
Summer at the Fair.
In Barbaric Splendor.
Many performers, In gorgeous costumes,
appear In it. The native cavalry of In
dia form the greater portion of the pa
geant. There are also scores of dancers
and men representing the populace. Two
elephants, carrying gorgeously decorated
howdahs, in which the principal person
ages ride, complete the scene of barbaric
splendor. The richness of the costumes
worn, the elaborate paraphernalia and the
realistic handling of the subject, entitles
the "Durbar" to first place among circus
Of course, the much-exploited "Dip of
Death" Is the most remarkable feature
of the show, and it certainly supplies a
great enough sensation to satisfy the
most ardent admirer of daredevil feats.
It was successfully accomplished yester
day, Mile. De Tiers, the young French
woman, making the terrible ride In a full
sized touring car with apparently the ut
most unconcern. This makes all other
Incline riding stunts seem tame by com
parison. It is the acme of all death-defying
performances, and seemingly must
ilwaya stand as such. Human Ingenuity
could hardly conceive of anything more
Trained Elephants Perform.
The Barnum & Bailey trained elephants
lupply one of the most interesting fea
tures of the bir show. There are 24 in the
nerd, big and little, and their tricks have
the added value of novelty.
The horses are the best ever seen here,
ind the equestrian performers are good
tnough to entitle them to the use of such
The most notable among them are the
members of the Brun-Lecusson troupe,
who do marvelous things with a tally-ho
and a four-in-hand; the Rooneys in a
tandem trap-cart, and the Wentworth
DerrJch trio with an Austrian road-cart.
These acts are all unique and supply
something new under the sun in the way
of circus feats.
Among the acrobats the Grunatho
troupe of seven women, and the Florenz
troupe of 12 men and women stand side
by side in point of excellence. Both
troupes are famous everywhere, but it
was Portland's first opportunity to see
Probably the most expert aeriallsts in
the world are those In the Imperial Vien
nese troupe. Certainly, nothing to equal
them has ever been seen In the United
Volo, who loops the gap on a bicycle,
performs the hazardous undertaking well
fcnd attracts great attention.
Fine Hippodrome Events.
The hippodrome events were splendid
and in every respect realistic, especially
Is this true of the chariot races.
Most remarkable perhaps of all the
clowns were funny. "Slivers" and the
to or more sawdust comedians are funny
enough to banish all the care In town.
The trained Animals, aside from the ele
phants already refcrTod to, are very in
teresting. Pleasant features of the show were the
splendid method and clock-work prompt
ness with which the performance moved
wd the absence of vulgarity or undue
The menagerie is a magnificent one. Its
greatest attractions being the quartet of
clraffcB. the 19 fine camels and the big
herd of elephants. The giants and the
Swarfs, probably the largest and smallest
human beings, formed great centers of
The immense crowds were splendidly
handled, there was practically nothing
Tor the police to do and the show seems
to be absolutely free from the grafters
fcnd "sure-thing" men who usually hang
on to a circus.
Barnum & Bailey's show is all that
one expects to see. It is the greatest and
best ever and deserves the immense pat
ronage It is receiving. There will be
performances this afternoon and to
tight. WILIi ItEVOKE LICENSES.
Saloonkeepers, if Convicted, Must
Forfeit Their Permits.
It is the intention of the liquor license
tommlttee of the City Council hereafter
to revoke the license of every saloon
teeper In future convicted of any offense
Sn the Municipal Court Such was the
lubstance or a resolution adopted by the
oody at a special meeting yesterday af
ternoon, ana it is merely In keeping with
plans formulated several weeks ago, and
noted by The Oregonlan at the time,
tt is expected that the Chief of Police
ind City Attorney will keep the com
mittee fully informed relative to all crim
inal prosecutions Involving saloonkeepers.
M. B. Runklo and R. E. Cowie were
rranted a license to conduct a saloon
it 41 North Third street, and Marder
A Keller at 209 First.
The application of Josef Rogers for a
license to sell liquor at 888 Upshur street,
was refused -a second time. This la the
3erman roof garden that became un
pleasantly notorious lately on account of
rertain transactions Involving Paul
ftelcker and Lombard & Noble. Efforts
were made to get the committee to re
reree its previous ruling, but they were
snavalllng, and any attempt to sell 11-
quor in the place will be met with Immedi
ate arrest, as the license Inspectors are
determined to enforce tho law.
John Andessie tried In vain to get a
license for a saloon at 294 Shoridan street,
and presented a numorously-slgned peti
tion in support of his claims. It was
placed on file and a counter-petition pro
testing against the establishment of the
saloon was granted.
The following transfers were allowed:

Those afflicted with Eczema know
more than can be told of the suffering
fire." It usually begins with a slight redness of the skin, which gradually
spreads, followed by blisters and pustules discharging a thin, sticky fluid
that dries and scales off, leaving an inflamed surface, and at times the itch
ing and burning are almost unbearable. While any part of the body is
liable to be attacked, the
hands, feet, back, arms, face
and legs are the parts most
often afflicted. The cause of
Eczema is a too acid condi
tion of the blood. The cir
culation becomes loaded
with fiery, acid poisons that
glands and pores of the skin which set the flesh aflame. Since the cause of
the disease is in the blood it is a waste of time to try to cure it with local
applications; the cause must be removed before a cure can be effected. S. S. S.

Unless early and correct treatment is
applied the patient seldom survives
when once the disease is fastened upon
her. Lydia B. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound is the most efficient treat
ment for kidney troubles of women,
and is the only medicine especially
prepared for this purpose.
When a woman is troubled with pain
or weight in loins, backache, frequent,
painful or scalding urination, swelling
of limbs or feet, swelling under tho
eyes, an uneasy, tired feeling in the
region of the kidneys or notices a brick
dust sediment in the urine, she should
lose no time in commencing treatment
with Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, as it may be the means of
saving her life.
For proof, read what Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound did for Mrs.
" I cannot express the terrible suffering I
had to endure. A derangement of the female
organs developed nervous prostration and a
serious kidney trouble. The doctor attended
mo for a year, but I kept getting worse, until
I was unable to do anything, and I made up
my mind I could not five. 1 finally decided
to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound as a last resort, and I am to-day a well
woman. I cannot praise it too highly, and I
tell every suffering woman about my case."
