of meeting the American battleships

becoming low and voct. A couple of
fishing boats nearby went to their as

into safe waters, and did all tbey could
to accomplish the service; but it

to remedy the situation, and the dar

that these forms of Eczema are cur

itch disappears, and continued appli

Admiral Sperry has the gracious and
attractive personality of a diplomat;
his manner is frank, simple and demo

culture and weighted with delightful

fame nor the depressions of obscurity,
through every grade of the service,
until he is inclined to leave details to
others and to permit the tide of cir

Theodore Huerth, living on Park

"I found Doan's Kidney Pills do
just what is claimed for them. For
a long time I suffered from a lame

an irregularity of the action of the

enough to lay me up but was very an

Trumbull, president of the Colorado
& Southern Railway Company, who
has returned from a five weeks' trip
through the west and southwest is
optimistic over the prospects of the
railroads particularly in Texas. .
Mr. Trumbull said that generally
speaking in the lines in the west ran
through agricultural districts were
doing'well and in some cases local
business was actually showing in
creases over last year. He remarked,
however, that this gain was offset and
possibly would be'for sgme time by
losses on manufactured products.
