CURE THAT GRIP TODAY
Thousands of people in this city suffering with colds are about
to-day. To-morrow they may be prostrated with Grip or Pneumonia,
(-rrip is spreading. Whole families are suffering. Many business
places are crippled through sickness of employes. The disease is not
necessarily dangerous with proper care and the right remedies. It is
almost suicide to depend on quinine and whiskey or home decoctions.
Don't trifle with a cold. Either take my Cold and Grip Cure or call
in a competent physician. I can't say what your doctor will do for
you, but I do know that my Cold and Grip Cure will speedily break
up all forms of colds and grip. It checks discharges of the Nose and
Eyes, stops sneezing, promptly relieves the Throat Lungs, allays In
rlainination and Fever, and tones up the system. It cures Backaches,
Headaches and Dizziness accompanying the symptoms of Grip, pro
duces sleep and restores strength to the body. It is invaluable in all
forms of Influenza or obstinate colds. —MUNYON.
I will guarantee that my Rheumatism Cure will speedily cure nearly all forms of
rheumatism; that my Dyspepsia Cure will cur c any case of indigestion or stomach
trouble; that i*o per cent of kidney complaints, including Bright's Diseaae, can be
cured with my Kidney cure, f.7 cures for 57 ailments. Every druggist sells them— •

Eyldemiu More Deadly Than
New York, Jan. 16.—Dr. Cyrus Edison
says of the grip epidemic:
Fully one-sixth of New York's population,
at least one-tenth, have the grip; the others
will get it. The epidemic has been more se
vere and the cases have been more numerous
than ever before. There are many cases of
grip-pneumonia, which affects the lungs.
This i» very dangerous. The death rate so
far haa been enormously high—seventy-five
deaths in one week is .unprecedented for grip.

Speolal to The Journal. ' -
Washington, , Jan. 16.—"Will tha river
and harbor bill vbecome a.law?" I asked-
Congressman Corliss of Detroit. \,
' "Of course It will," replied. , ,
"But you are opposed .to the bill," I
said. ■. , .. ■ *;.,:-■ ■/.•;
"Yes and no," Mr. Corliss said. •■■■.• "I ■ am
opposed to gross extravagances, and to the
reckless grab bag system which hag under
laid our ' river and • harbor bills for .years.'
1 think that the government ought to do a
certain important part of the work of im
proving rivers and other navigable waters,
but I; oppose the system , under which;
money is squandered by the millions every
year in sections of the | country where the
public is not interested and | from :. which;
it can never derive any benefit. I am
opposed to the bill in its present form, arid
shall'do all that I can to defeat It; but it
will pass,- nevertheless. Its friends have
been very careful to lay their plans well.
They have judiciously, placed appropriations
here and there, in certain strategic sec
tions, thus insuring the support-of mem
bers from those sections, and in various
other ways - have greased the - way . and
smoothed all the rough ' places, i;. The bill
will go through like a streak of | lightning
when it comes time to vote; but" knowledge
of that fact will not keep me from express
ing my views regarding it in as-- forceful
language as I can command." •. - •,., .
Just, after my chat with Mr. Corliss I
sauntered around the lobby ■ to the -, ele
vator leading to the press gallery, and at
the landing met Capt. ; Loomis of the Mm- 5
neapolis republican flambeau club, who had
sent in his card to Congressman Fletcher.
"I don't think he will come out," I said.
'"Why?" asked Loomis.
It so happened that I had been in the
gallery a short time before and had heard
'several of the members from irrigation
states, of the' far west getting "after, Mr.
Fletcher's item of $300,000 for completing
the reservoir work along the upper Missis
sippi. These members were making all
sorts of rude inquiries, and Mr. Fletcher
was very much on the anxious seat. They
thought that if the irrigation appropria
tions were to be ignored, there was no rea
son why any money should be spent in the
upper Mississippi building reservoirs; and
they pushed their point as far as they
could. "Your uncle" was nervous, : and
moved his seat to a place nearer Chairman
Burton of the river and harbor . commit
tee, who was on his feet making a speech
in defense of the bill. Mr.. Fletcher
couldn't sit still in his new position, but
got up and moved about the floor uneasily.
He thought possibly that the irrigation
members would go far enough to endanger I
the reservoir item. . i ;.» -
It was while the excitement was at its
height that Captain Loomis' card was hand
ed to Mr. Fletcher. Hurriedly the Minne
apolis member started for the lobby door.
I was still telling Loomis about the things
outlined in the foregoing paragraph. "Your
uncle" came up hastily.
"Glad to see you, Loomis," he said;
"glad to see you; but you really must ex
cuse me. The river and harbor bill is
up, and some of those darned fellows from
the wild west are getting after my reser
voir item. See you later."
And before the words were out of his
mouth -he was back in the house, almost
running to reach a point where he could
hear the debate and satisfy himself that
nothing harmful to the reservoirs ■ had
happened while he was away.
Later he sent for Captarin Loomis, and
invited him to lunch. »
Sitting with Mr. Fletcher, watching the
debate were Congressmen Morris, Eddy
and Stevens from Minnesota, all of whom
have interests in the bill. All cards sent
in for these gentlemen were turned down.
They politely but flnnly declined to leave
their seats while the debate was on.
Late in the afternoon I met Mr. Fletch
er as he was on his way to the senate
end of the capitol.
"I've got it fixed all right," were his
words. "They tried to down me, but I
was too much for them. We get the
Just before the vote was taken in the
senate on the army canteen proposition,
I had a talk with Senator Towne of Min
nesota. He said:
1 shall vote against the canteen, although
I must admit that I am uncertain whether
from the point of view of exact facts the
anti-canteen people have proved their ease.
They claim that the canteen is demoralizing
In the army; other authorities claim that it
is in the interest of sobriety and better
morals. In my own mind I do not know
which side is right. Both are represented by
some of the most emineut authorities in the
land, but. as I have told the W. C. T. U.
ladies and others to whom I have written, I
shall give them the benefit of the doubt and
vote against the canteen.
Senators Hansbrough and McCumber, of
Norrh Dakota, took prominent parts in the
canteen debate, and were against the con
tinuation of the canteen. They are from
a nominally prohibtion state, and of
course could noc be expected to take any
A well known public man was asking at
the capitol why Senator Hansbrough was
against the canteen, and some one stand
ing by remarked that it was because
North Dakota was a prohibtion state.
"Is that sol" replied the questioner. "I
Wave spent a good deal of time in that
state during the past half dozen years,
and am well acquainted in Grand Forks,
Fargo, Bismarck, Jamestown and Devils
Lake. It never occurred to me that the
state was prohibtion, and I am surprised
to hear anybody say that It is."
Representative Spalding of North Da
kota "had 'em going and coming" on the
roapportionment bill. He secured a con
cession from Chairman Hopkins of the
census committee to the effect that North
Dakota in the Hopkins bill should have
an additional member, and then offered an
amendment to the Burleigh bill whloh in
sured an additional member from North
Dakota in that measure. Then he sat
back and to<jk life leisurely. It was a
very neat bit of work, and no doubt will
please hia many friends.

No railroad legislation is expected this

There are plenty of men disabled, of
course, but most of them go Into hospital
on the spot and come out again in good

American hospitals have done most to
swell the list of pension claimants. The
most part of them, if left to themselves,
would never file claims, but they are put
up to it by pension attorneys and claim
agents. They have their hired runners
out in the street at Sau Francisco, watch
ing for soldiers discharged from the hos

intolerable a while'ago t&at the hospital |
authorities devised the plan of sending
discharged patients to the railway station

Germany, according to late consular re
ports, after having placed an embargo on
American meats, is now learning by ex
perience how it is to be the mark for
such an embargo. Russia has proclaimed
an order prohibiting. the importation of

fects one of the principal industries of
Brunswick, the manufacture of various
kinds of sausage, and the chamber of com

protest to the department, ol the interior
The National Zeitung and the Vossischs
Zeitung are of the opinion that the pro
hibition recently issued by the German
government against the importation of
foreign meats into Germany has given a
weapon to Russia and other foreign coun
tries, by which they can ward off the ef
forts to promote the export, of German
meats. In regard to the argument that
Russia ignores the German inspection for
trichinae, the Brunswick Landeszeitung |
notes that Russia may apipeal to the fact j
that Germany does not recognize the
American meat inspections, although the
Americans assert that these are thor
Late advices from American consular
agents in Canada ere to the effect that
lumber exports from Montreal, the prin
cipal export point in the dominion, show
a decrease of about 60,000,000 feet for the
present year as compared with. 1899. The
amount exported this year was 226,996,857
feet. Some two dozen replies to letters
sent out by the Canadian Lumberman
were published in the lest edition of that
paper. These replies go to show that log
ging operatives in Canada are unable to
obtain a sufficient number of employes.
Wages and food have advanced, and the
chances are that the output of logs will
be materially reduced. The Lumberman
adds that the increase in the wages erf
woodsmen in the United States has
amounted to nearly 85 per cent during the
past four years. And it Is believed that
there has been an almost equal advance
in Canada. This inoreaee, saya the con
sular report, cannot be disregarded by
manufacturers, who must of necessity se
cure for their product a price sufficient to
cover the higher cost of production, and
the report adds:
"The consumption of lumber lor manu
facturing purposes is likely to grow. In
addition to a steadily growing home de
mand, the export of furniture and wood
implements is increasing. It is not im
probable that the United States and Great
Britain will take from Canada next year
fully as much. If not more, lumber Uian

There seems to be a concerted move
ment among certain interested classes In
the northwest to secure, if possible, a re
peal of the existing duty on hides. With
in the past week more than a dozen long
petitions bearing on this matter have been
presented to congress. The members of
both houses from Minnesota, Wisconsin,
the Dakotas, Montana and lowa seem to be
the ones thus far having a monopoly of
this business. There is no chance what
ever for any legislation on this subject
during the present session, unless it
should come through the pending bill to
reduce the war revenues.

Unexpected Opposition Develops to
the Judges' Salary Bill.
SEWARD WOULD BE A CANDIDATE
Countttution Will Bar Him If the
Increase Is Hade at ThU
Special to The Journal.
Pierre, S. D., Jan. 16.— The bill to in
crease the salary of the governor and the
circuit and supreme court judges is likely
to meet with a Btrong opposition in the
house, and that from an unexpected quar
ter. A certain number of economists are
always opposed to any measure of the
kind, no matter how momentous, but In
this case a good share of the opposition
will come from attorneys. One of these
is C. X Seward of Watertown, if current
report may be relied upon. Where the
shoe pinches Mr. Seward is said to be
that he is a candidate for the judgeship
of the third circuit. He is also a member
of the legislature, and he believes that if
this legislature increases the salary of
the judges it will bar him from making a
run for the place under the constitutional
provision, which says that no member of
the legislature can fill a position created
by, or the salary for which was increased
by the legislature of which be was a mem
ber. Under these circumstances Mr. Sew
ard ia eaid to be unwilling to take any
chances of disqualifying himself for the
race. It is rumored that Mr. Price of
Yankton, and still another lawyer member,
will oppose the bill for the same reason.
The bill relative to divorce which was
presented by Mr. Fietz of McPherson
county, provides that insanity shall be

The bill introduced by Representative
Heath of Brookinga county, virtually re

A San Francisco photographer has a
number of enlarged colored pictures on
exhibition at the state house which he
hopes to sell to the state for the sum of
$400. ifmong them are four pictures of
the officers of the First regiment—Colonel
Frost, Lieutenant Colonel Stover, Major
Charles A. Howard and Adjutant Lien.
The pictures of Frost and Stover are very
good, but the other two are poor. Eighteen
smaller pictures represent the First regi
ment in camp at the Presidio, in the
grand review, and in various scenes in the
Philipipnes. If the state purchases the
collection it will probably be presented
to the historical society.
Senator Newby of Duel county has in
troduced a bill that will materially aid
the counties in collecting delinquent per
sonal taxes. It empowers the commission
ers to take possession of any warrant
issued in favor of the delinquent and to
apply the same upon his taxes, or to de
duct the amount of the taxes as the case
Mr. Varnum's bill relative to the pay
ment of taxes seeks to abolish the privil
ege of making payment in two installments
and contemplates a returning to the old
plan of making all taxes payable in March.
Bills are coming in now at a pretty good
rate. So far about the same number have
been introduced as at this same period
two years ago.
The bill introduced by Representative
Goddard of Sully county relative to the
treatment of indigent drunkards provides
that county commissioners may, at their
option, send indigent drunkards to in
stitutions to take the Keeley cure at an
expense of not to exceed $100. The bill
was formulated by Dr. Rozelle, a former
representative from Hanson county, and
as first drawn made this action compul
sory upon the commissioners.
Senator Martin of Miner county, one of
the six fusionists in the senate, is the only
member of either house who has yet at
tempted to make an extended speech. On
Monday he orated long and earnestly upon
the Steere letter, but elicited no reply
from the republican side. The republican
policy will probably be to ignore the gen
tleman as much as possible, as it is be
lieved he will be heard from frequently.

resolution to present ex-Governor Lee

that the office chair used by Deputy Gov
ernor Ayres be also presented to that gen
tleman, and the whole proceeding was
tabled. It would be Just like Mr. Lee,
however, to return the gift by express,

disposition of publio property.
The plan to create the office of reading

Pe-ru-na for Chronic Catarrh,
CONGRESSMAN A. T. GOODWYN, OF ALABAMA.
Hon. A. T. Goodwyn, Congressman of Alabama, in a recent letter to
Dr. Hartman, from Robinson Springs, Ala., says:
"I have now used one bottle of Peruna and atn a well man
to-day. I could feel the good effects of your medicine before I
had used It a weak, after suffering with catarrh for over a y»ar."

WHAT the skin is to the outside of
the body, the mucous membrane
is to the inside of the body. Every
organ, every duct and passage of the body
is lined with mucous membranes.
A general flabbiness of these mucous
membranes constitutes what Dr. Hart
mau calls systemic catawh. A person
with systemic catarrh cannot stand ex
ertion. He is all tired out. He is ner
vous and fidgety. He i 3 sallow and de
pressed. He has little zest for life and
is unfitted for business.

dramatic reader of New York city, writes

In systemic catarrh there is more or
less catarrh of every organ in the body.
The catarrh may have originated in the
head and throat, but it has finally per
vaded the whole system.
It produces a wretched condition. The
mucous membranes of the whole body re
fuse to do their work properly. Sight,
hearing and taste, are slightly affected.
The lungs are weak; the voice husky.
The tonsils are red and inflamed. The
etomach does not digest food well. The
liver acts sluggishly.
Suffered From C'atarrU for Sine
Years—-Was Cured in Five Uou.Uim
From letters written by Mr. Peter
Hattenberger of Porterfleld, Wls., we
quote extracts as follows:
August 1, 1890.
Dr. S. B. Hartman:
Dear Sir—"l have been suffering with
chronic catarrh about nine years, and it
has now settled on my lungs and I 3iave
all the symptoms of consumption.
"Dec. 18, 1890.—1 am still follo-wing
your advice and am getting along well.
"Feb. 12, 1891.—1 am still improving in
every way. The catarrh is leaving my
head and throat.
•'April 27, 1891.—1 am still using your
medicine. My health is improving right
along, my appetite is good, and I feel
better than I have in five or six years.
"Aug. 28, 1891—1 am rid of the catarrh
now, and feel perfeotly well and ihappy."

Nine Years Later Ilia Cure Remained
■In a later letter, written January 1,
1839/ Mr. Hattenberger says: '
'</ am in splendid health at prestat
and I am not in need of any medicine.
However, I always keep a bottle of
Peruna in my bouse. Sometimes 1
catch a little cold, but a few doses of
Peruna stops that right away. '■■
"It is through Peruna that I enjoy
such good health, and I recommend it
to all who suffer from catarrh the
same as I did."—Peter Hattenberger.
Peruna It* a Natural and Efficient
■ - »rye Tonic.
Peruna strengthens and : restores : the
activity of every nerve in the body.
Through the use of Peruna the weakened
or overworked nerves resume their nat
ural strength and the blood vessels at once
begin to regulate the flow of blood ac
cording to' nature's laws. Congestions
immediately disappear. AH phase* of
catarrh, acute or chronic, are promptly
and permanently cured.
It is through its operation upon the
nervous system that Peruna has attained
such a world-wide reputation as a sure
and reliable remedy for all phases of
pelvic catarrh known as female ailmeats.
It is the best, if not the only, internal
remedy for pelvic catarrh ever devised
by the medical profession.

Mr. B. Martens of Sigel, Wis., writes:
'For some time my wife had been sick.
She was iery thin, had no appetite, could
not sleep nights, and was troubled with
constipation.. ■ '-
The physicians we consulted aaid it
was dyspepsia. One of them said it was
catarrh. She could get no relief until she
began to take Peruna and Manalin. Be
fore she had taken half a bottle of each
she was conscious of a marked change.
"She began to sleep at night, appetite
came back, bowels were regular, and
now, after taking five bottles, she is en
tirely well. She looks like a new woman.
"We cannot say half though in praise
of your medicines. The physicians we
employed were very much surprised when
they learned that Peruna and Manalin
cured my wife."
There are no substitutes for Peruna.
Peruna i& the only systemic catarrh rem

the public to-day can boast of as many
complete cures as Peruua.
