Mm do not like to ero to doctors. Nine
times out of ten tlhey wait until they are
laid flat on their backs before they will
consult a physician. There is some reason
in this, for when a business man feels out
of sorts and goes to a physician, he is often
given violent drags that make him, for a
time, unfit for business and really sick.
There is a way of avoiding both extremes
that of neglecting the health and that of
taking violent drugs that rack the entire

medicine whenever he feels that he is out.

" I want to inform you of a cure effected by Dr.
Pierce's medicines," writes Mrs. Nelson Smith,
of Mount Vernon, Jefferson Co., Ills. " About
six years ago I had grip, ending with bronchitis
and consumption. In the spring of 1896 my con
dition became very serious. I had consumption
and I coughed day and night; could not lie down
at all. Our family doctor said I could not get
well. The neighbors came in to see me die, and
a lady friend recommended Dr. Pierce's, medi
cines so strongly that we immediately sent out
and bought six bottles of his ' Golden Medical
Discovery and ' Favorite Prescription. After
using these medicines, found I was receiving
benefit and continued. I weighed 120 when I
commenced taking medicines, now weigh 170.
I sleep well, have a splendid appetite, feel well,
and believe I am entirely cured. I am thankful
to God and to Dr. Pierce Tor those wonderful
medicines. I want to add that I am a wonder
to my neighbors and friends.' '

But that alas ! I cannot do.
Some day .the web will all be done,

The Boers Reported to Have
Abandoned All Idea of In-V
RETURNING TO THEIR HOMES.
Excitement at Durban Has Abated Brit
ish Parliament Summoned to Meet
October 17th Reserves Called
Out Excesses of Bosrs.
By Cable to the Morning Star.
London, October 7. Most impor
tant news comes from the Transvaal
tonight, which if true, probably in
dicates that the South African Repub
lic is about to yield, or, in any case,
that the Boers have abandoned all idea
of invading Natal. -
The news as comprised in a cable
gram from New Castle, Natal, says
that farmers who arrived there to day
from the Buffalo river state that the
Boers are returning to their homes,
leaving patrols along the river. The
commanders still remain on the Free
The dispatch also says that the feel
ing at New Castle now is that the
Boers do not intend to attack that
place and that the evacuation of the
town was premature.
A dispatch from Durban also says
that the excitement there has abated,
the Boers holding back from the fron
tier. The retirement of the-Boers is
what the British war authorities have
expected, as their defective commissa
riat would prevent them from long re
maining massed along the border.
Telegrams received here recently
have made frequent references to the
scarcity of forage and supplies in the
laagers, and have stated that many of
those in the camps were inclined to
strike out for their homes unless ac
tive operations were taken immediate
ly. The dispatch from New Castle
looks as though they had done as they
threatened and had abandoned the
idea of fighting. Meanwhile further
transports from India with two fied
hospitals and hussars have arrived at
Durban and the men and material
were forwarded to LadysmitL instant
British Parliament Summoned.
A royal proclamation, summoning
Parliament to meet on October 17th
and authorizing the calling out of the
reserves, was signed this morning.
Her Majesty, in privy council at
Balmoral this morning, assented to
the calling of Parliament, the mobili
zation of the, reserves, and the contin
uance in the army of all soldiers now
serving who in ordinary circumstances
would be entitled to discharge or trans
fer to the reserve.
The War Office announces that, un
der the proclamation, calling out the
reserves, 25,000 men will be sum
moned. The field force for service in
South Africa, the War Office an
nounces, will commence mobilization
The . Evening News publishes the
following dispatch from Cape Town:
"The reports of ' the barbaric ex
cesses committed by the Boers on refu
gees have caused a thrill of horror
here. In one instance seventy women
and children were packed in a cattle
truck so tightly that they were unable
to sit, and were thus kept side-tracked
for thirty hours, without food or
water. ; When they attempted to leave
the truck they were driven back with

Sympathy for the Boers.
Berlin, Oct. 7. Affairs in South
Africa are still commented upon in the
press and elsewhere here in the same
anti-British spirit. Sympathy with the
Boers is almost everywhere expressed.
The Kruez Zeitung, which represents
the opinions of the court, the army,
and the Conservatives, says:' "The
sympathies of the German public are
altogether on the side of the Boers.
Nobody here doubts that they, after
yielding much to the lordly demands
of Great Britain, will have nothing
left them but to draw the sword. As
is the opinion of Germany, so is the
opinion of the world, at least in so far
as the world is still anti-British. The
victory of Great Britain will induce
Russia and France to make headway
in Asia against her. This is a neces
sary outcome of the situation. The
Boers have only themselves to rely on
in a hard fight. The time has Irre
trievably gone when other countries
would have interfered out of sympa

Robbery and Riot Improvised Vigilance
Committee Nearly Lynched Captain.
Bv Telegraph to the Morning- Btar.
New York, Oct. .7. With the na
tional . colors union down and the
union jack at half-mast, the iron
steamboat Georgiana, .hailing from
Philadelphia,' this afternoon sailed
slowly up to the Battery from
the Narrows with a story of pirat
ical robbery, riot and violence.
The boat was practically in the
hands of a gang of ruffians and card
sharps when it sailed away from the
Battery, ostensibly .for the yacht race
at 11.80 this morning. The sharpers
used violence and intimidation and
ran against an improvised vigilance
committee which nearly lynched the
captain of the craft, threw the faro and
roulette -tables overboard and chased
the .' gamblers into the bar-room.
Then it was that the vigilance com
mittee hung out the boat's flags as dis

word to the police and finally secured
the arrest of a dozes or more men who

Manila, October 7. The Tennessee

after a week passed in the harbor.
Most of the year these troops have

Ex-Vice Consul Wildman's Views on Con
dltions in the Philippines Islands
Well Worth the Struggle.
By Telegraph to the Morning Star.
New York, Oct. 7. Edwin Wild
man, ex-vice consul of the United
States at Hong Kong, and who was
stationed there when the war in the
Philippines was begun, was a passen
ger on the American line steamship'
which reached her dock from South
ampton and Cherbourg to-day.
Mr. Wildman spoke on conditions
in the Philippines and eulogized Ad
mirel Dewey. "The Philippines," he
said, ."are well worth the struggle.
The country out there is magnificent
and the climate is good. There are
seven months ' of good weather and
then comes the rainy season when one
can do nothing. But then in every
country there is the bad time of the
year. The sooner we get down to
governing the islands, the better.
They are worth much from a com
mercial standpoint. The whole coun
try is rich and productive.
"General Otis is too old and not ag
gressive enough. He tries to do the
whole thing out there and like every
other man who tries to do all, he does
nothing successfully. The great need
out in the islands is a young and ag
"As to the question of self-government,
I am led to believe that none of
the native people are capable of that
in the highest sense of the word. The
only way that the natives could gov
ern is under American supervision. I
believe that the flag in the Philippines
should never be lowered. We have
got to conquer or annihilate. The
question is, which will our war do?
"I want to say now, that at no time
was Aguinaldo or any of the Filipinos
promised independence. Admiral
Dewey made then no promises. We
brought Aguinaldo over to Manila the
same as any other man was brought
over there to help. At no time was
anything said about giving them' their
independence. You will notice that
in his manifestoes Aguinaldo is careful
not to say directly that there were
promises made; . That talk always
comes from some of his followers who
have something to gain by his suc
cess;" THE CRAIG LAW SUSTAINED.
Judge Brown's Decision in the Case of
tbe Southern Bell Telephone Com T
paoy Notice of Appeal.
By Telegraph to the M oralnjr 8tar.
Raleigh, N. C, October 7. A
special to the News and Observer,
from Durham, N. C, says:
Judge Brown has rendered his decis
ion in the case of W. K. Debnam,
versus Southern Bell Telephone Com
pany, which was arcrued on Thursday
for removal to the Federal court. In.
his decision the judge refuses the re
moval to the Federal court asked for
by the defendant, on the ground that
the Bell Telephone Company is a cor
poration of this State. The defendant
in this case asked for a removal to the
Federal court on the ground that th6
Southern Bell Telephone Company was
a citizen of the State of New York, and
not a citizen of this State, and there
fore had a right to trial in the
Federal court. The plaintiff op
posed the removal and . claim that
while the defendant was a citizen of
New York the Craig Act made the
company a citizen of this State also.
The company had been domesticated
under the provisionsof the Craig Act,
but claimed that it did not change the
citizenship in the least.
In his decision filed yesterday after
noon Judge Brown sustains the Craig
law. xne defendant nas given notice
of appeal to the Supreme Court, and
from there the case will go to the Cir
cuit Court, and on up to the United
States Supreme Court for a final deci
sion on this point of law. It is a bat
tle aa to the constitutionality of the
Craig Act, which domesticates foreign
corporations, and in the first fight the
Craig law has won.
