JCeoaho, Mo.. Oct. IS. Th! city, the homo
of Congressman Maecenas n. Benton, was
the scene of a tremendous Democratic
demonstration to-day. Citicn came from
Newton and surrounding coantlco.
Although Necsho has a population of only
5.S0O, at least 10AO j ersons heard the speak

carried Ales.ar.dcr M. Docker" into Neosho
was loaded with excursionists from Mnneti.

a wajron. and a float containing forty oung

una cheered In fine uni&on. Another float
represented an American soldier with a rifle
standing over the prostrate form of a Fili

the float was entitled. A number
of effective banners Learinjr legends along
the line of "The ContltutIon Follows the

"The Germans In Newton." says Judge
Harbison of Neosho, "are greatly worked
t-p over the issue of militarism. They de
Uare that they left the Old Country that
their sons might not be forced to spend the
best years of their lives In the army, and
they are opposed to establishing a system
in the United Stntcs like that which im
pelled them to emigrate. These Germans all

for Bryan this jear. I know one German
family, containing sir -.oters, who hao
changed for this reason."
Congressman Joe Bailey of Texas, who
was billed to speak with .Mr. Dockery, was
detained. There was no dearth of good
rr-akers. however. Besides Mr. Dockery
them were Congressmen Benton and AVill
ism JL Wallace of Kansas City. Thes.pe.ik
ins was :rom a stand erected In the Court
house Square. Monster lithographs of four
men who are concerned on the present can
vass were rang-d side by side on the front
of tho stand. They were Washington. Jef
ferson. Lincoln and Bryan.
Mr. Dockery opened the speaking. Re
garding State issues-, he said:
wnen the Itepubllcan leaders raise the
cry of 'We want to see the books of the
State they show their incapacity as leaders
and Imj.ngn thUr faithfulness as citizens of

The school fund was looted, but Repub
licans did the looting. In 1MB the school
fund was lntcsted In stock of the Rank
of Mlhsourl amounting to X!,'ji" The Re
publicans sold this stock to Captain James
. liids for Jl'fo.M a share, making a total
ot JJ1S.2C. General Thomas I J 'rice offered
$135 a hare for that ntnck, but tho offer
was refuscl. and thus tITo.210 was absolute
ly loit to the school fund. Captain Eada paid
tui uiai uuitiw yioi:i in maiu oonus uorlll
70 cents, compelling tho State to take them
ot 1W cents. Here was another loss to the
school fund of I213.47i). Therefore, the total

under Republican rule was J.T1.CS0. Hero

Macon. Mo.. Oct. It Congressman James
T. Lloyd arrived from Kahoka this after

ty meetlnps one at Callao this afternoon
and another to-night at New Cambria. At
both places the enthusiasm .was marked.
Are you startled by every little noise? Does the prattle of children
annoy you? Does the creaking of a chair or the slamming of a door
make you feel as if you would fly to pieces? Does your life seem a
failure? Are you frequently cross and ill-natured? That condition indi
cates that you are suffering the torture of " female complaints ". You
get no sympathy because others don't understand your suffering. They
only know how you become nervous and excited with little apparent
excuse. You have probably tried many remedies for irregular menstru
ation, falling of the womb or Ieucorrhoea. But you gave up in despair
before trying the right one. We call that to your attention to-day. Wine
of Cardui is a positive cure for all female diseases. It rehabilitates the
unstrung nerves and strengthens the delicate and sensitive female or
gans. Menstrual disorders are the bane of women's existence. But with
Wine of Cardui so easy to secure, it is the height of folly for you to go
on enduring the torture and dragging ills. Do not allow these terrible
diseases to steadily drag you to the grave. Time makes them worse.
Wine of Cardui relieves them quickly and permanently. Try it when
the first symptom appears. AH leading druggists have $1.00 bottles.
TuIIy, Kas., Feb. 24, I899.
I have suffered untold pain at menstrual periods for a long time; had headache, and
was tired all the time; was nervous; had no appetite, and lost interest in everything; in fact
was miserable. I have taken four bottles of Wine of Cardui, with Thedford's Black-Draught
when needed, and to-day I am entirely cured. I cannot express the thanks I feel for what
you have done for me.

Mr. Judson Explains the History
of the Provision Directing
Investment of the Fund.
So much of the controversy now going on
over the Public School Fund of Missouri and
the form of Its Investment relates to trans
actions occurring during the administration
of B. Gratz Brown, who was Governor of
Missouri In 1S71-72. a reporter of The Re
public called on Mr. Frederick N. JuiLson
yesterday to ask him In regard to his recol
lection of the facts. Mr. Judson was tho
private secretary of Governor Broun dur
ing his term as Chief Executive of tho
State, and by reason of that fact. Is neces
sarily Intimate)' Informed regarding nil
public matters connected with tho admin
istration of State affairs eluring tho year3
Governor Brown was in office. Mr. Judson
having recently written a work on taxation
entitled "A Treatise on the Law and
I'ractices of Taxation in Missouri." had
naturally occasion, in the course of hi
studlM for that work, to make an ex
haustive examination of Missouri recoidi
relating tn this particular subject, and for
that reason is doubly qualified to give cor
rect Information about pchool fund matters. I

of the State Bank or Misrourl. then held
fur school purposes rhould bo sold and the
proceeds and all other property then or
thereafter belonging to the School Fund
should be invested in bonds of the United
"Tho effect of this, of course, was to re
