I had already had two operations, and they wanted me to go through a third one. I suffered day and night from inflammation and a small tumor, and nerer thought of teeing a well day again.

If you are ill do not drag along at home or in your place of employment until tn operation is necessary, but build up the feminine system, and re-more tne cause of those distressing aches and pains by taking Lydia E. llnkham's Vegetable Compound, made from roots and herbs. For thirtv years it has been the stan-flard remedy for female ills, and has. positively restored the health of thou-sandsof women who hare been troubled with displacements, inflammation, ulceration, flbroid'tumors, irregularities, periodic pains, backache, bearing-down reeling, flatulency, indigestion, dizziness, or nervous prostration.

Mexican Performs Unbeliev able Featse on Thin Steel Thread Rotlldcllo, the Mexican wizard of wire, will be sern In Oakland with Rtngltng Broth rs' circus on Sunday an Monday, Beptemher and 6. It seems a lhamt to call Roblldella a wtre-walkcr, In so doing It tends) to ptace him with others af that class. Whin, as a matter of fact. he In so vastly superior to any living' wire performer as to require a new man ner of describing- his specialty. This Mexican wonder runs, dances, stands on his head and turns somersaults on a slrnder steel cord. He actually falls down on the wire while imitating a belated clubman coming; home on un steady Irgs. One moment spectators are laughing at his remarkable antics and the next minute they are lost in wonder nt his skill and audacityNothing like the act was ever before seen in America. Saxon Giants The three Saxon brothers are another "nsottnn to be found among the Euro pean performers. One of the trio lls on lils bock end with his feet supports piann upon which stands twelve men, while with his hands and arms he holds the two largest men that can be found and a pair of heavy dumb-bells. Two of the brothers form the supporting struc turejof a bridge over which passes i heavy with sljt passengers, Arthur Saxon, the head of the trio, claims to be strongervthan Samson, and those who here seen the act have ceased to doubt his claim. The Schumann performing horses, the telephoning elephants, the balloon pig and the double-somersaulting automobile are other Instances of the greatness of the bill. Twenty Camel Team A twenty-camel team Is one of the features of Rlngllng Brothers' great parade this year. Thre are also teams of sebi-a. elephants, deer and llama. They are all used in culling chariots and tableau vsns. PRESS CLUB ELECTS OFFICERS FOR YEAR SAN FRAXCISCO. Aug. 2T.

TREASURY CHURCH ROW Rev.J). S. Glassford Wants! for Former Member of His Congregation, PREFERS CHARGES OF IS- MALICIOUS SLANDER Woman, Who is Alleged to Have Erred, is Cause of Trouble Rivalry for the position of pastor, parental antipathy to the woman whom son of one of the principals had married, an attempted church ejectment of he woman and tales alleged to have been told which attack the fitness morally of lie presiding pastor, are component parts a iued which has rent asunder the Bible Students' Spiritualistic Church, at 51 Eighteenth street and which yesterday resulted In an application at the district attorney's office for a warrant charging malicious slander. Rev. 8. Glassford, pastor of the above named church applied for the warrant. A. Stlt, a car builder for the Southern Pacific who at 1358 Market street, was the (han whom he wished arrested. upposenviarriage The trouble, which has already resulted In Stit leaving the Eighteenth street place of worship and, wfth disgruntled members of the spiritualistic congrega tion, forming a rival congregation at 214 San Pablo avenue, threatens to have Its aftermath In a civil suit for damages against Stlt. Church rivalry and because Rev. Glass ford refused to countenance the eject ment If an unpopular daughter-in-law from, the Eighteenth street place of worship are the principal causes which- led up to the feud. 1 Last March, Charles Hanks, an en gineer, and a step-son of Stlts was mar ried -to Llflian Fox. Stlts and his wife opposed the marriage. It is said that the woman. lived with Hanks for several days prior to the marriage. Later a church ejectment of Hank wife was attempted by the tits-after fche had left her husband In Eureka and came back to this city. Becansa Rev. Glassford Is said to have known that the young woman lived with' Hanks for a time prior to her marriage, and In the face of It, refused to permit the young woman's ejection from the church, he is said to have gained the opposition of Stlts. Rivalry for church leadership also helped to fan the ilame of dislike which sprang up between, th two principals. Charges Slander Yesterday, Rev. Glassford applied at- the District Attorney's office and sought a warrant against Stlt, charging' slander. He declared thatd Stlt had circulate stories which attacked his character. The Btlt stores were, according 4to Glaesford's declaration, that he knew Hanks and the worran had lived together without- being married, that he opposed the woman's ejectment from the 8pirt-uullstlo congregation when Stlts attempted to hava her ejected and that be cause he blocked the ejectment, Stlt had I declared him to be wprrtQding immorality and was unfit to be pastor of the con gregation. Glassford told the District Attorney that the stories relative to. his moral finess had Irjured hlra with members of the congregation. Pastor's Statement "While staying at a Sixteenth street boarding house, I learned that Hanks and the woman who later became his wife, were living together immorally," declared Glassford last night. "As soon as I found this out I took the young woman to task. She admitted that she had been doing so for several days, but declared she and Hanks were to be mar- rled the next day. I also upbraided Hanks for inducing the girl to live such a life. He also told me that he would marry the girl the following day. The couple were married aa thty promised. Later they went to Eureka. A month later the young woman left Hanks and came back to Oakland. After she came back she became a member of" the Spiritualistic Church, of which I am pastor. "Stlts, who with his wife, had always opposed the marriage of young Hanks to the woman. Immediately commenced ejectment proceedings. I believed that the woman was In need of a little spirit- lw.ln tn mob A a to- Ufa and that it was my church's business to help a person who became a cnurcn member instead of throwing them out, and when I learned that Stlts was coins' to have the young woman ejected, I opposed it. My el forts defeated Stlts' purpose. When the board of directors of the church refused to consider the ejection, Stlt made threats to 'get me' on the floor of the State Spiritualistic convention at San Jose in September. He claimed that because I knew the woman had done wrong and refused to oust her from my church, that I was immoral myself." Plovc Pnlitirc- 7 1 with the church board of directors were responsible for the flefeat of Stlts' attempted ejection. Stlts waa the organizer of the Eighteenth street church, ind is said to have dictated affairs for a long lime. Glassford lined up the directors when he heard of tne proposition to eject the woman, and when Sits in turn trfced to pull the proper strings he was, in slang parlance, "turned down." The threat "to get tho pastor on the conven tion floor la said to have been made in the hearing ef the assembled board of I directors. "It was a family quarrel and I did not like to have the whole thing threshed I out-in my church." declares Glassford "There are several things about the case l.iat are unsavory. I had no i dislike for Stits personally, but for the above1 because 1 thought the girl could bel moral with church affiliation. I opposed CURES I DISEASES STARTS to is I I LEI CREATES REIGN Of Halts Beulah Heights Women at Night With Threats "To Cut Hearts Out" INSANE, SAY RESIDENTS AND DEMAFiD POLICE' AID Children Flee In Horror From Man and Neighborhood Lives in Dread ADDllcatlon was made to the police He- panment today by Mrs. S. E. Pollard and other residents In the vicinity of Boalah Park, for the arrest of Fleming Demp ster, a pickle vendor, residing at the end of New Broadway, on the ground that he was terrorizing tne women ana ennaren or tne community by threatening to cut their hearts out and cnasing them with bottles, knives ana otner weapons, wnere by great harm might be done. or more tnan a week tne strange con duct of the pickle vendor, according to the terrified women, has been observed, each day the threats of death being made more venememiy. Police Watch Suspect A police officer was detailed to the scene to see that no harm wouldi be done by the man until a warrant could be sworn out and his sattity tested. Among the women- who have been Jthreatened, living in the neighborhood are iMrs. who notlhea the police Mrs. E. McClellan and Mrs. A. Jones The children of the latter have been re peatedly chased by Dempster, who says, according to the t.iildren, that ne will cut their nearts out. This Is the story that Mrs. Pollard told at ponce headquarters: Neighborhood Terrorized "For several weeks we have noticed the peculiar actions of Dempster, but in the last few days his actions have be come so terrifying that the entire neigh borhood is living In mortal dread that some one will be murdered before Dempster can be restrained. His actions show that his mind is disordered. He has in the lust few (lava taken un with the habit of jumping- at women when they pass along unprotected and telling them at night time he will come to their homes and cut their hearts out. He has certainly created a reign of terror among- the women and children, and as he is irresponsible. It is necessary that police protection should be afforded US." After Mrs. Pollard's call a snecial no- lice officer was sent out to look for the alleged demented man. AUTO RIDES, CAUSE OF MAINTAINANCE SUIT SAN FRANCISCO, Aug-. 27. Automobile trips of the "Joy ride" variety were responsible for the domestic trouble of Mrs. Bruce Monroe, who resides at Eddy and Devlsadero streets, and who brought. suit for separate maintenance today. She declares that she was able to put up with the escapades of her husband, who is a clerk by occupation, until one day he drove up in a machine with a young woman, whom he introduced as Miss Annie Brown. This was too much and Mrs. Monroe has determined that he shall be forced to support her and his children instead of enjoying- automobile rides with other women.
