CLASS RULE FATAL. PRESIDENT GIVES WARNING AT JAMESTOWN. In Imposition Speech Say End of Itcpnbltc Will Come When Got eminent In In Hands of 'Either Plutocracy or Mob Instead of All. President Roosevelt's speech at the opening of the- tercentennial exposition :at Jamestown was an appeal to national pride to preserve the republic by avoiding the. fatal error of "class rule." "Other nations have fallen," he said, ""because the citizens gradually grew to consider the interests of a class before the intercuts of the whole ; for when such wns the case it mattered little whether it was the poor who plundered the rich or -the rich who exploited the poor. In eith r event the end of the republic was at Aland. "We are resolute in our purpose not to fall in such a pit. This great republic of ours never shall become the government of a plutocracy and it never shall become a government of the mob. "God willing, it shall remain what our fathers who founded it meant it to be, a (government where ea...

IF TRY DR. WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS FOR YOUR RHEUMATISM. The Pill Have Cured tha Disease In Almost Every Form and Even In Advanced Stages. Rheumatism, is a painful inflammation of the muscles or of the coverings of the joints and is sometimes accompanied by swelling. The pain is sharp and shooting and does not confine itself to any one part of the body, but after settling in one joint or muscle for a time, leaves it and passes on to another. The most dangerous tendency of the disease is to attack the heart. External applications may give relief from pain for a time but the disease cannot be cured until the blood is purified. Dr. Vfilliams' Pink Pills are the best medicine for this purpose as their action is directly, on the blood, making it rich, red and healthy. When the blood is pure there can be no rheumatism. Mrs. Ellen A. Russell, of South Goff St., Auburn, Me., says: "I had been sick for fifteen years from impure blood, , brought on by overwork. My heart was l weak and my hands co...
