Supporters of Ex-Congressman Miers for Old Place Almost Ready to Give Up. Indiana Correspondents DAVIS SHOWS GREAT STRENGTH im HAD FEAR OF DEATH CONVENTION OPENS TODAY Davis Declares He Have Seven More Votes Than Are Necessary. BLOOMINGTON, Ind., April 29. Political prophets who arc attempting to lore- cast the action of the second District Democratic congressional convention, which meets here tomorrow, are showing a marked preference for Cyrus E. Davis of Bloorafieia for the winner. Even some of the friends of ex-Congressman Robert W. Miers of Blooming-ton, who has been induced 10 enter the race in the hope of being selected as the compromise candidate, are almost ready to give up hope, sueli strides has Davis made in the last few day?. The other candidates for the nomination are Alvin Padgett of Washington, Charles Wellman of Sullivan and Juur W. A. Cullop of Vincenm-s. Until a few days aco the Miers camp was confident. Mr. Miers only consented to make the race for the nomination after it had been pointed out to him that the contest between Padgett and Davis had reached a point of such bitterness that neither would permit the other's nomination and that there was a Ilrst-elass opportunity for .a compromise candidate 10 slip In. take the strength of either Davis or Padgett and sweep the convention. Such a picture was painted In vivid colors for Mr. llii-rs by his Eloomlngtou friends, who apparently wen: sincere In their assertions. Tliey looked upon Mr. Davis as the strongest candidate in the field, concedine: him a lead over Padgett, but they did not believe Davis could corral enough votes to nominate himself so long a9 Padgett remained in the race. Expected a Deadlock. And so. they pointed out, the convention would go Into a deadlock, with Davis and Padgett delegates standing hard and fast to their favorites, thus paving the way for a Miers stampede. At any time after the deadlock set In. Mr. Miers's friends told him. the mention of his name on the convention lloor would precipitate a rush for his baad wagon, with either Davis or Padgett or both in the lead. But the recent show of strength on the part of the Davis men has changed tills Bloomlngton optimism to a .state of serious doubt, and tonight Monroe County Democrats are almost ready to give up. Davis declares he will have sixty two delegates voting for him on the last Fallot of the convention the ballot that will nominate hint. Only fifty-dive votes are necessary to a choice. Davis prophesies the following votes by counties In his favor at the close: Greene 17 Lawrence 13 Knox 13 Martin 4 Owen . 4 Sullivan 11 Total 0: To these figures, which a short time ago would havo seemed ridiculous to tho Miers people, the friends of the Bloom lngton candidate arc not offering objec tions. Thoy do not profess to he able to keep any of the votes away from Davis; their hope tor Mr. Miers. the hope upon which tney induced him to enter the race, "was that Padgett would be strong enough to split the counties to which Davis was looiting lor delegates.

Nursing mothers will find "Fa Torite Prescription " especially val liable in sustaining their strength and promoting an abundant nourishment for the child.

Padgett's friends have declared time after time that Davis, twice a loser as the congressional nominee, could not he elected if lie were nominated, and Hie Miers people used the same argument for tho licnelit of the candidacy of their man. Judge Cullon and Mr. Wellman of Knox and Sullivan Counties, respectively, have I made little effort to line up delegates outside their own counties, and for this reason they hate not been considered to any extent in the ante-convention strength estimates. Tonight Hie Hotel Bowles Is swarming with delegates and visitors. All the candidates have established headquarters there.

When I was first taken, my head commenced to Jerk and I could not control the muscles, of my body. I could not talk as my tongue seemed as though it. was thick. My parents had to feed me for three weeks. My nerves were so bad the least thing excited me and I had no control over myself at all. "The doctors did not seem to help me and my father gave me Dr. Williams Pink Pills. After taking them I noticed I was not so nervous and had better corir trol of myself. In a few weeks I was so that I could help myself and improved until entirely cured." The Best Nerve Food. That Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People have cured obstinate cases of St Vitus' dance, is the best evidence that they will cure all lesser nervous disorders, because the principle in the treatment of all nervous diseases is the same. Nervousnesses a question of nutrition. Food for the nerves is what is needed and the best nerve food in the world is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. They are sold by all druggists, or will bo sent , postpaid, on receipt of price, 50 cents per box; six boxes for $2.50, by the Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Schenectady, N.
