Feruna Medicine Company as follows:
Oemtlemen "After four years of Intense suffering, cause by systemic cm
tarrh, which I contracted while editing and traveling for my paper. I have been
greatly relieved by the use of Peruna. I gave up work during these years of
torture, tried various remedies and many doctors, but all the permanent relief
came from the use of Peruna. My trouble was called Indigestion, bat It was
catarrh all through my system, and a tew bottles of Peruna made me feel like
another person, noting the Improvement alter I had used the first bottle. Perw
aa la undoubtedly the best catarrh remedy ever compounded.' 'Clem Q. Moore.
Captain Percy V. Moss, Paragoulel, Ark.,
ays: "I think Peruna Is undoubtedly tho
finest and surest catarrh cure ever prepared,
and It has taken but two bottles to confines
me of this fact."

The Food Care Brought Her Ont With
A lady In Laurence. Ind., Mrs. M. C
Waring, was a poor Judge of food and also
a worker In literary and educational lines,
where she exhausted her vitality because
of the bad combination of a load of work
and poorly selected food to rebuild her.
She was using hot cakes for breakfast,
meat, coffee, etc., and gradually lost ground
until she became a total wreck. She says:
"I was so reduced that the slightest noise
brought a cold perspiration all over mc.
Sleep was out of the question ami my ap
petite toi gone. I was apprehensive of all
sorts of disaster. I became really very 111.
I was on the verge of losing my mind, when
one day a friend who sat at my liedside re
marked that she would bring mo some
thing nice to eat.
"Sure enough, when she came over she
had a dainty luncheon on a tray with prcttv
decorated china dishes, etc. A cup held
some coffee, as I supposed, and a dish held
some hard, brown Granule., and she told
me that was Grape-Nuts Food, whereas the
liquid was To-tum Coffee.
"I liked tho taste of the Grape-Nuts with
a little cream and ate all of It. After some
persuasion I drank the Postum ColTe-e and
that night was the most peaceful night I
had enJoed in months, and when I awak
ened in the morning I found the Grape
Nuts package on the table near my bed. and
I had some for breakfast with somo Postum
"I at once began to feel better and dis
carded all kinds of medicine, stimulants,
narcotics, and ued onlv Grape-Nuts four
times a day with Postum Coffee. At the
end of thirty days I left my bed. and after
three months' building up on Grape-Nuts
Food and the famous Postum. I have taken
up my literary w-ork. working harder than
ever, making up for lost time.
"Mental strains have no more terrors for
me. I keep my mental faculties clear. All
my Inner organs have become clear and
healthy, so I never know I have any, yet I
work and study sixteen hours out of the
twenty-four on an average. I often wonder
what has become of those dreadful nerves.
Things that formerly disturbed me now
"A healthy body Is a happy body, so I go
about singing and happy, come sunshine or
rain. Grape-Nuts and Postum lifted me out
of a sick bed. and Grape-Nuts Food has
since Drought my little daughter through a
severe case of scarlet fever. Grape-Nuts
was the only food she could take, and the
doctor said she would have died had It not
been for the nourishment given her by
Grape-Nuts Food. Do ytm wonder we be
lieve In the famous food?"
There is a reason why the Postum Cof
fee and Grape-Nuts are towers of strength
In times of trouble. Any one can learn the
fact and the reason If they care to make
searching Inquiry. The company furnish
the details, but It Is sufficient to most people
to know that whereas they have been poor
17 treated, scd perhaps wrecked with dis
ease from Improper food, the change to
Grace-Nuts mod Postum has suds, them
a remedy for catarrhal trouble and a most
excellent tonlo for general conditions."

statement of your case and he will be
pleased to give jou his valuable advice

AGED WOMAN STRUCK
DOWN BY A NEGRO.
Hatchet Buried in Skull of Mrs.
ilary Schiller of Kansas City
as She Rocked a Baby.
Kansas City. Mo.. June S. While sitting
rocking a baby at her home, at Second
street and Woodland avenue, this after
noon, Mrs. Mary Schuler. 70 years old, was
ttruck down with a hatchet by a negro,
who appeared suddenly before her. Mrs.
Schulcr's skull was fractured. The motive
Neighbors were attracted to the Schuler
house by the woman's screams. Mrs. Schu
ler staggered from the house, bleeding from
the wound in her head Inflicted with the
hatchet. On the floor near whero she sat
rocking the baby there was a pool of blood.
Bureau drawers had been searched,
trunks had been ransacked and beddings
had been dragged from the bed by the ne
gro In his search for valuables.
Mrs. Schuler was able to repeat, weakly,
"nigger, nigger." and then lapsed Into un
consciousness. Later, during a period of
momentary cejnsciousnessv-sjie described-her
assailant, and a crowd that had gathered,
aided by a squad of police, began a search
of the neighborhood.
The house Is situated In a poor district In
the east bottoms, near the railroad tracks,
and, as the search for the man crew In
proportions, the belief gained that he had
escaped on a passing train.
As news of the affair circulated, the ex
citement became intense, and threats of
lynching were made freely.
Half a dozen arrests were made, but no
tangible evidence against any of the
suspects was found. Mrs. Schuler was taken
to St. Joseph's Hospital, where examination
disclosed two severe, but not necessarily
fatal, fractures of the skull. An operation
PENALTY FOR ILLEGAL VOTING.
Maximum for 3esbit Law Viola
tion to Be Fixed.
Judge Franklin Ferrlss of Division No.
of tho Criminal Court probably will becalled
upon this morning to decide the punishment
for Illegal voting under the Nesblt law.
A week ago Saturday Judges Ferrlss and
Wood of the criminal bench, sitting In banc,
upheld the Nesblt law. but rendered no
opinion concerning the Denaltv clause.
which places the minimum punishment at
two years in the penitentiary. When the
clause does not state the maximum, a gen
eral State law provides that It shall be life
imprisonment. The old Filley law. which
is operative In Kansas City, and was for
merly the election law of St- Louis, fixes
the maximum for illegal voting at Ave years
In the Penitentiary. If the Nesblt law re
in als the Filley law then the maximum. It
is argued, would be life imprisonment; but
if they aro to be construed together the
maximum of the Filley law may be held
gecd. Still others argue that the court will
bo obliged to set the punishment at the min
imum of two years.
The point of punishment will be raised
when Michael McNamara and James Nolan,
charged wllh Illegal voting, are called for
trial this morning. It must be settled be
fore a Jury is selected. If the life penalty
is decided upon the defendant Is entitled to
twelve challenges and twenty-four hours
in which to make them. Otherwise, he has
only six challenges.
NOT ENTITLED TO VOTE.
Judge Rules on Point in Contested
Lebanon. III., June XJudge Perrln of the
County Court of St. Clair County has flled
a decision In the contested election case of
LVI C Mueller vs. Fred Pesold for the city
treasurershlp of Lebanon, In favor of the
latter, and In so doing has made a new and
interesting ruling In Illinois election law.
Plaintiff and defendant were opposing can
didates for City Treasurer of Lebanon at
the last municipal election. The returns In
dicated Pesold's election by a plurality of
two votes". Mueller then contested the elec
tion in the County Court, claiming a num
ber of stndents of McKendree College,
whose real homes were elsewhere, had
voted for Pesold. who Is professor of music
In the college, and that they had no right
to vote. The Court, in the decision filed,
holds that the students had no right to
vote. He said the point is unsettled in
Illinois, but the soundest principle Is that
they have no right to vote at the seat of
their institution unless their permanent
homes be there. The Court held, however,
that Mueller had not shown for whom the
students voted, and for that reason decided
In favor of Pesold.

IN KENNEDY CASE.
Marshall O. Elwell Pronounces
Check Signatures to Be
GOOD WITNESS FOR DEFENSE.
Face of the Check and Imlnrse-
iiient Said to Be in Different
Hands, Neither Written
by the Defendant.
New York June 1 The trial of Samuel
J. Kennedy on the charge of murdering
"Dolly" Iteynolds In the Grand Hutel on
August 1. 1S3S. was continued this morn
ing with the handwriting experts for the
defense rebutting the testimony by which
the State seeks to fasten upon Samuel J.
Kennedy the authorship of the check found
in the corset of tho murdered woman, and
the "E. Maxwell and wife" memorandum
alscovereU In the room In which tho woman
Doctor Kennedy smiled confidently to h!s
aged father and chatted cheerfully with his
counsel while waiting for tho Jurors to tako
their places. The first of the defense's
experts was Marshall O. Elwell. LL D. of
Chicago, author and editor of several law
books and an expert witness In tho Cronin
Mr. Elwell testified that In his opinion
the disputed writings had not been written
by tho same hand as the admitted writings,
but were forgeries, written by some other
person with the intention of imitating tho
handwriting and signature of Doctor Ken
nedy. He said that the characteristic features of
a handwriting were thoso which recurred
so frequently or constantly as to denote
a fixed habit on the part of the writer, and
that It was only by the.se characteristics
that an expert could discover the Identity
of a WTlter.
Witness then proceeded to show by crayon
reproductions the absence of Doctor Ken
nedy's characteristics in the disputed
Questions by William Troudman. Jr.. the
second Juror, and Theodore Weed, the sixth
Juror, elicited the opinion of Mr. Elwell
that the face of the check and the indorse
ment were in two different hands, neither
having been written by the defendant.
Mr. Elwell finished his direct testimony
In less than two hours, and Mr. Osborno
took him in hand on a short cross-examination.
Mr. Moore objected strenuously
to Mr. Osborne constantly breaking in on
the witness and not permitting' him to fin
ish his replies.
"It is apparent," observed the court,
"that the witness is volunteering explana
tions." "But," rejoined Mr. Moore, "I was held
to the rule that tho State's experts had
to he permitted to finish their cxplan i
tlons and that then I could move to strike
out what they said. Under this rule, I was
compelled to listen to many long explana
tions that were evidently not responsive."
Court finally adjourned until half past
10 o'clock to-morrow morning.

In the temporary absence of Sheriff
Mencken of St. Louis County a crowd of
gamblers operated successfully nnd on a
large scale at Crete Coeur Lake for a few
hours Sunday afternoon In tho center of tint
pleasure ground, vv hero hundreds of families
spent tho day.
Ono device was uiln,ue, even for gamblers.
It was located lwncath tho branches of an
oak tree. The improvised table upon which
It rujied was formed of two empty beer
bands across which planks had been
nailed. The party operating the "Honduras
Lottery." as tho game was called, consisted
of a chief operator and about seven "c.ip
pers." On tho table was spread a white oilcloth
on which were ni.irKetl numbers from 1 to
SO. 'With each number was a ligure from U
to JXO. which represented what mi;ht be
won by a player on whom Dame Fortune
was pleased to sinilt. On the table were
niiirt six-slde-d pegs, each side being marked
with u number.
The play consisted In knocking down all
the pens und adding up the nunibe rs which
ap)Carcd upis-rmost on them. If It hap
pened that tho total corrc-ondrd to u
number en tho board with one star, tho
player was given the sum of money marked
on that nuinlwr. If two stars- came up
the player was allowed to "margin" his
"'holding with U cenls.
The game was kepi up all day and mv

was told that If he put up that sum It would
bo impossible to lose. The banker explained
why inls was. pcmtlng to the arlous num
bers on tho table to proie what he claimed.
Tho man ap;eared to understand and put
up his money. When thu pegs went down
and were added up a number resulted which
was not on the ooanl at all. The banker
was equal to the occasion, though, and
pulled up a section of tho oilcloth, whlcn
was hanging oter tho far Mdo of the table,
on this was marked in yellow the number
.... which was the same as the pegs hid
ilirurcd up. This was marked with, two
tars Hnd was In faor of the banker, The
man complained, ami wa. told that out or
the 1W numbers that was tho only one
which would have mado him lose, and that
he was plajlns in exceptionally lnrd luck.
When it became too dark to continue their
game, they decamped, and drove away from
the grounds in a wagon.

llth i?t and PmDftTlvahla Vve.
Washington. June I. There Le a difference
of opinion among odclals of the administra
tion and members of Congress who have
thu3 far expressed their sentiments touching
the necessity for an extra session of Con
gress to frame a Philippine tariff. Tho
question Involves the power vested In the
President by the Spooner amendment deal
ing with tho Philippines. The Spooner
amendment to the army appropriation bill
adopted In the closing hours of the last Con
gress provided as follows:
"All military, civil and Judicial powers
necessary to govern the Philippine Island
shall, until otherwise provided by Congress.
Lo voted In such person and persons and
i-hall be exercised In such manner as the
President of tho United States shall direct
for the establishment of civil government
and maintaining and protecting the Inhab
itants of said Islands In tho free enjoyment
cf their liberty, property and religion."
Opinions Do -ot Agree.
It Is claimed on the one hand that under
this broad and svveepin; delegation of power
from the legislative branch of the Govern
ment, the executive may perform the func
tions of the legislative branch In the estab
lihment of customs duties. This proposi
tion Is controverted by others. Attorney
General Kneix i preparing an opinion as to
the adcqu.icv of the Spoemer amendment. It
Is expected that the opinion will be ready tee
morrow and that the question of calling an
extra session then will be decided.
Senator Spooner's View.
Senator Spooner. the author of the amend
ment, has expressed the opinion that the
amendment did not give tho President au
thority to levy customs duties on goods en
tering tho United States when viewed In the
light of the Supreme Court's recent decision.
At the time It was drawn it was considered
sufficient, and its framers did not look for
any court decision that would question Its
There Is no doubt that the administration
and most eif the Republican members of
Congress desire to avoid an extra session If
roslbIe. Hut above this wish the President
ueslres to hasten tho establishment of civil
government In the Philippines. If the tariff
yltuation is to conflict with this purpose
there Is little doubt he would call Congress
tcgether for action.
