SHIN- BONE POUND TO BE AFFECTED, ! But Doctors Insist That It I� Not a Serloni Matter and That Tbey Ex-- p*ct the Patient'* Convalescence to Be Vnlnterrnpled. " . Washington, Sept. 29.-Another oper-atiou has been performed on "the abscess on tHe left leg of President Roosevelt. In tbe former operation a simple needle was used to relieve the trouble, but this time the Burgeons with a knife made an'incision into the Binafl cavity, exposing the bone, which was found to be sligU^ry affected. The president's case has been progressing satisfactorily, but it is believed by the physicians that the further operation will hasten his complete recovery. While none of the doctors Is willing to be quoted, they give the most'positive assurances that there Is not the least cause for Hlarm and say that; on the contrary, there is every'indication of a speedy recovery, that the area of bone affected is very slight and will not result In any impairment of the president'^ limb and that there is no evidence whatever of any matter that would produce blood poisoning. They confidently expect that the president will be oh his feet.within a reasonable time and/with his robust constitution to assist recovery, soon will be himself again. New York Phy.lclan There. - Dr. Newton M. Shaffer of New York, who long has been acquainted with the Roosevelt family and has attended the president's] children at various times and who also-is a well .known bone specialist, joined the president's physicians in their morning consultation. It was noticed that there had been a alight rise in the president's temperature and an increase in^ocal symptoms, and the conclusion was reached that the patient's recovery would be bib stoned by making an incision of the wound for the purpose of relieving the slight, tension or swelling which was present and also to drain the'wound. The operation was performed between 2 and 3 o'clock In the afternoon: An application of cocaine was used to allay the pain. The president stood the operation well and subsequently expressed his satisfaction at the successful result Dr. Rixey, the surgeon general of the navy, performed the operation,' assisted by Dr. Lung, tbe presidents regular physician. ,Dr. O'Reilly, who also was present with the other physicians, is the. surgeon general of the army; and Dr. Edward K. Stitt, another of those present, is in charge of the Naval Museum" of Hygiene, and Medical school. Tlie Prentrteiit RentlTC.  The physicians took a roseate view of the president's prospects for gettitiig out again. He lias become, somewhat restive because .of his close confinement^ and r'ho, physicians are considering the advisability of permitting him to take a ride in a few days. They say the question now is simply one.of the healing.of the wound and reiterate that �this will be hastened by the second -operation. Dr. Shaffer called at the temporary White House in the evening for a social visit and found the president in the best of spirits. At the White House at 10 o'clock it was said that the president was doing 'well-and'that no additional statement would be issued. Late in the evening Dr. Shaffer, while he declined "to discuss generally the president's case, authorized in the most positive manner the Statement that there need not-be the least cause for anxiety or alarm regarding his condition, but said, on the contrary, he could give every'assurance of: tbe belief that the president would soon, recover.   .Secretary Cortelyou has issued the f-olllowing bulletin: "Dr. Xewton M. Shaffer'of New York joined the president's physicians In consultation at 10 o'clock. '   1-   . "The increase in local symptoms and a rise in temperature rendered it necessary to make an incision into small cavity, exposing the lione, which . was found to be slightly affected. Thorough drainage is now established, and the physicians feel confident that recovery will be uninterrupted. . "The operation was performed by Surgeon General Rixey, assisted by Dr. Lung and in consultation with Surgeon General O'Reilly and Drs-..Shaffer, trie and Stitt." ' -. Hnitlan Rebel* Defeated. .- Kingston; Jamaica, Sept. 29.-The German gunboat Panther has:arrived here from Haiti. She reports that the government troops under General Alexis Nord. have -defeated the rebels and are occupying the village of Limbe. General Jean .Tumeau, General Firmin's right hand man, is reported to be- dead. After taking on coal,and provisions the Panther will go to Venezuela-by way of Trinidad. '     . . Severe Pacific Storms, San Francisco, Sept.-29.-The steamer Nippon Marii has arrived from the orient after passing through two of the worst storms. that have visited the south Pacific in many years.

O ur O p e n i n g is N oyv Ove r and a Lively one it was. THE BIG STORE The weather made no.appreciable difference. It started with a rush, both the crowds and selling. 'A number of A^ddletown ladies, who attended the New' York' open-lgs prohoTTirce our hats superior to any one display in the great ketropolis. VTae very height of artistic perfection finds expression hi our grani display of Trimmed Millinery. This is the universal opinion expressed, at our opening. * * PROMINENT MIDDLETOWN LADY, and a well-known connois-selir of all that appertains to correct dressing, says: - Competition with such a magnificent line as yours, and particularly your trimmed hats, is impossible. Your line of ..goods is not only a credit to Middletown.but if placed in any of the largest cities of our country, would be second to none.        ' '       � Everything worth seeing In the millinery line was shown at- our opening, and a-thousand items shown, here will not be seen elsewhere. Ours is not a little parlor millinery display, but a grand and immense line of the most beautiful goods there is to be found.        - Anyone desiring the privilege of paying front 25 to 50 per cent, more for far less artistic millinery than we furnish, and .with the smallest kind of an assortment to select from, can do so by applying elsewhere.^ That's the whole story in a nut shell.

The gasoline motor,.which furnishes the power, is of three and a Half nominal, horsepower, of .the'single cylinder type, Although this motor is.rather, small for a machine that weighs around 1,000 pounds, the patent transmitter enables it- to carry the whole machine, with two passengers, up'an ordinary grade. The. speed is controlled with remarkable facility from a small throttle lever � placed- on the seat, and in addition to a friction clutch for starting, the . transmitter contains two positive . ciutche^s for change of speed and one,.positive" clutcn for reversing. Improvements in the electrical part, including arrangements of the battery" and coil, have been made by E. P.
