HUSPECTS AltE NADDED.
rive Ancsts Were Mado Yesteiday
of Suspicious Chnrncters.
'Phut the police of this city ore not
tiolnu' lo slund around idle und allow
btuglais to bieak Into stoics and offices
with Itnpttnlty was evidenced yester
day bv the action of Chief of Police
McAndiew and his men, who made live
nucslH of suspicious acting individuals.
These in tests weto liiiule in an e.t ra
ta dlnaiy manner, or four of them wore,
and II Is believed that the hutglailous
entrance Into John Mohr's stoic on
Tucsdiiv night can be directly linced
to two of tho suspects ut least.
Theie ale seveiul shanties up above
this city along the lnllioiul tracks
which have been empty for a long time.
Repoits came to Chief McAndrew on
Wednesday that In one of these aban
doned houses a gang ot tramps had
been making their lodging. Ho Inqulied
what these men looked like and found
that one of them wns red-headed und
another whs dressed in a. gray suit
with a drab felt hat. Tho men seen
lunnlng away from Mohr's store on
Tuesday night by A. W. Reynolds an
swered this description. After mid
night yesteiday morning the chief took
thiee of his men ami stole up to the
shanty. There was no one there, but
theie was much evidence on hand that
the place was- occupied.
The chief and his ofl'teeis settled
down to a long wait: Shortly before G
o'clock tlnec men cumc strolling in and
the ofllcers nabbed and searched them.
What was, found could not be ascer
tained. While the ofllceis weie buirV
searching the pilsoners, two moie men
cume along: and weie about to enter
the house when thev saw the Dotlcc
men by the aid bf the faint daylight.
They turned aiound and ian for the
tiack. The shanty Is- located up near
Wilson dock mine and stands on a
high embankment. The olncers called
on the fugitives to stop. Not heeding
the call, two bullets were sent after
them. Just then the pin sued ones had
leached tin- cicst of the embankment
.mil it was too late to stop. They i oiled
over and ocr down thu steep decline
and on i caching the bottom picked
themselves up and bolted out of sight.
Tho thtce pnsoneis had been left In
chaige of one of the oillceis, who ealm
Iv Iniil them that il they tiled to get
away lie wouldn't hesitate to shoot.
When the ufticeis l etui ned after their
fruitless chase they look the tlnec prls
oneis to the city jail, whete they were
locked no. The red-headed man was
among the bunch, but the si ay-clad
tiamj was one of those who escaped.
Dining the d.tr Olhcor C.uden saw a
man on thu r,tieet who answeied hH
deseiiption and he ai tested him. About
o'clock a jou th of seventeen or eigh
teen, who was also suspected to be
long to the gang, wa.j giabbed near the
Theie was a healing given the first
tlnec jesletdnj- moiningby the major.
Two of the men weie disehaiged, as no
one could be found to Identify them.
The lid-headed man was committed
for thiity d.is and lemanded back to
his eell in the city jail. This illumin
ated specks of tlie "hobo" claimed to
be eiy sick and his claim Is .well sus
tained. He was piostiated on ills cell
mnttiess, and he was evidently In such
bid shape that it was decided to leave
him wh-ie he is until ho is imuroved.
The lcd-he.ided man .it the hcai ing be
fuie the major pioved to be either very
ignotant m ety diplomatic, lie said
ho did not know who he was, noi vvlieie
he was bom, nor the name of the last
town he visited, nor how old he ia.
His loticeiue kept him in jail when his
two companions weto disehuiged.
The giav-elad man wus identified last
evening bv a man who is somewhat of
a st i auger himself, lie said that the
in Nonet's name was lletuj- Williams,
of Gioen Ridge, ",i good enough young
tellow, but ho will go off on teals."
The polite, however, believe they have
the bin glai. s. The pilsoner's friend
sn'd that he had been all over town
ti.ving to get a healing tor him, but
that no one would pay any attention to
him. 11 he can keep his patience bottled

Tho best blood-purifying medicine, at any season of the year spring, summer,
autumn, winter is Dr. 1'ierce's Golden Medical Discoveiy. You don't have to
take it on tiust. It lias, cured thousands of men and women of pimples,
blotches, salt-i lieum. teller, rheumatism, ulcer, sores, scrotula, and other forms
of blood disease, and cttied them peimiincntly.
"For about one year and a half my face vvas very badly broken out," writes Miss Carrie
Adams, of il6 West Main Street, Battlecreck, Mich. ,-I spent a great deal ot money with
doctors and for different kinds of medicine', but received no benefit. At last I read one of
youi advertisements m a papei, and obtained a bottlu ot Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
cov ery. Before I had taken one bottle of this medicine I noticed a change, and after taking
three bottles I vvas entirely cured. I can well recommend Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery to anyone similarly afflicted "
"I feel it niyduty to write to j ou of the wonderful curative powers of your 'Golden Med
ical Discovery,''' writes Geo. S. Henderson, Esq , of Deiiaud, Lee Co ; Florida. VI had a
bad sore on my right car and my blood was badly out of oulcr. I tried local doctors but
with no good results Finally I wrote vou the pafticulais in my case and you advised your
' Golden Medical Discovery,''which I began to take. From the first bottle I began to feel
better, and when I had taken eight bottles the sore healed up. I wish you success."
l'For three years I have suffered with that dreaded disease ec7ema," writes Mrs. J. Koepp,
of Hermann, Oregon. "I was told to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, which I
did, anil after I had taken fourteen bottles I was permanently cured. It has been a year
since I stopped taking your tnedicitic and the disease has never appeared since I think
our medicine a wonderful cure, and hope others suffering as I did, will take it and be
relieved of their suffering."
"I will forever thank you for advising me to take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery,"
writes Mrs. Jas. Murphy, of Fonda, Pocahontas Co , Iowa. " It has cured uie of chronic
scrofula of twelve j ears' standing. I had doctored for the trouble until I was completely
discouraged. I also had chronic diarrhea lor twelve year,. I am in good health now
better than I ever was in my life, owing to Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discoveiy. I took
several bottles of the 'Discovery' before I stopped."
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, not only ptnilies the blood but by
enabling the perfect assimilation of food incieases tho ntitiition which is con
veyed bv the blood to every organ of the body, so producing vigorous and
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets assist the action of the "Discovery."
Accept no substitute lor "Golden Medical Discovery." Theio is nothing
"just as good" for diseases of the stomach, blood and lungs.

one of these minute cicatttros will moduco in
one day, if the conditions ato favorable, some six
teen millions of descendants, and in three days tho
production will approximate fifty trillions. "Wo
may compute tho number but never
it. Wo have no concrete mcumtro for such figures.
nppiehcud in Homo measure the amazing rate and
rapidity of microbic increase remember th.it
in this twentieth century the population of
tho entire world is tlgtued at less than one
billion and a half.
Tho one emphatic point in this statement
of marvelous multiplication is this : " ' tho
conditions arc favorable" Tho most danger
microbo cannot injure man unless the
ditions are favorable. It is conceded that wo inhale
these microbes every day without injuiy, that we
receive them into tho body with the water wo drink
and 'the food wo cat and suffer no haim, the reason be
ing that the conditions are not favorable to microbic
propagation. It becomes a gieat question, thcicfore:
What are the conditions favoiablc to tho propagation
of disease miciobes in the human bodj ? The answer
is, unsanitary conditions. The same law rules the
blood that l tiles the brook : keep it pure and it is
healthful ; let it stagnate and become fouled with
decayed matter and it biceds disease. Tho prime
necessity for miciobie reproduction is dirt. Diit,
has been defined as "matter out of place." The
grease which collects in the kitchen sink is diit, just
as much as the dust which accumulates in unswept
corneis, and it seems perfectly proper in the scope
of this definition to speak of dirty blood.
I Tf you want to keep your blood in condition iin
favotable to microbic multiplication, get lid of the
dirt in your blood and keep lid of it.
