mento to The Call said that at an early
hour this morning Norman confessed to

The idea of the Myron Stratton Home
was conceived by the late millionaire
three years ago, when he was taken sick
abroad and confined in a hospital for
three months. Upon his return to this
country he drafted a rough plan of the
home Idea, which he/has since elaborated.
The large number -of consumptives who
come to this place for health is also be
lieved to have moved him to create the
"It is my express desire that the in
mates be clothed and fed not as paupers
usually are at the public expense, but de
cently and comfortably, and that whole
some food and necessary medicine be pro
vided in order to protect the health and
comfort of the inmates."
In. order to secure the maintenance "of
the' Myron Stratton Home the multi-mil
lionaire instructs that the balance of the
estate not utilized in the establishment of
the home be reinvested in good interest
bearing securities, the Income from which
is to be turned over to the trustees, to
be used according to their discretion in
keeping up the home. The will In con
cluding upon the subject of the Myrou
Stratton Home says:
The will expressly shuts out all those
who by reason of loathsome disease, gros3
indecency or insanity would imperil tho
health and happiness of other inmates.
The inmates are to be selected by the
board of trustees from residents of 111
Paso County, in which this city is lo
cated, after which residents of the State
may be received. The will further pro
vides that the active management be left
to a board of trustees, and that proper
incorporation of the institution be made
under the laws. The accounts of the home
shall be supervised by the District Court
or a iDoard of inspectors to be provided
for in the laws of the institutfon.
The objects of the Myron Stratton Home
are specified to be: "The erection of a
home for poor persons physically unable
to earn their livelihood, who either
through advanced age, physical debility
or otherwise are handicapped.".
OBJECTS OE THE HOME.
This son has lived away from the father
ever since he was born. Concerning him
there has been much speculation, as
Stratton was divorced from his wife Im
mediately after the birth of the boy. The
son visited the father but two or three
•times, and arrived in this city only after
the death of the multi-millionaire. He is
still in the city.
The will further provides that $10,000 be
left to Byron C. Lodgan of Indianapolis,
Ind., and to the trustees of the Colorado
School for the Deaf and Blind of. this
city, $25,000 to be expended in bettering
the condition of the. present school build
The main provision of the will Is for the
establishment and creation of the Myron
S. Stratton Home, "In memory of my
father." To this home Stratton leaves
all his vast estate and the trustees are
instructed to dispose immediately of all
his holdings, all properties, moneys, cred
its and other assets. From the moneys
so realized $1,000,000 is to be expended In
purchasing a suitable site In this city
for the home, after which the balance is
to bfc utilized in erecting all suitable
buildings. It is believed that another in
strument exists, giving some plans for
the home, the specifications for building
and the management of the institution.
"To my son, I. Harry Stratton of Tulon,
111.. $50,000, in case ho does not contest or
cause to be contested this will."
PEOVISION FOR THE SON.
The will of Stratton leaves the family
homestead, No. 115 North Weber street,
to Carl S. Chamberlain of Brooklyn N.
Y., including all furniture, books, heir
looms, etc., but excludes all personal
property. B. W. Hamlin, son of Mrs.
Harriet N. Hamlin of Jeffersonville, Ind.,
is to receive $50,000; to a nephew, Harry
B. Hamlin, is left $50,000; to Mrs. Jennie
Cobb Stratton of San Jose, Cal., $50,000:

A peculiar feature of the fire is that,
as It was confined to the kitchen, many
people attracted, to the scene gathered in

served all through the excltment. A re
port was circulated that a fire had started
on the second floor of the St. Anne's
building. This, however, proved to be In
correct. The smoke that issued from the
windows came from the fire in the base
ment and gave the impression that the
whole building was doomed. It will*' be

The Greatest Remedy for
California Extract o! Figs
Fig Bitters and Fig Liver Pills
Nearly everybody knows that charcoal
is the safest and most efficient disin-
fectant and purifier In nature, but few
realize Its value when taken Into the
human system for the same cleansing;
Charcoal Is a remedy that the more you
take of it the better: It is not a drug at
all, but simply absorbs the gases and Im-
purities always present in the stomach
and Intestines and carries them out of the
Charcoal sweetens the breath after
smoking, drinking or after eating onions
andother odorous vegetables. 1 •
Charcoal effectually clears and improves
the complexion, it whitens the teeth, and,
further, "acts as a natural and eminently
safe cathartic. • , . • '
It absorbs : the injurious gases which
collect in the stomach and bowels; it dis-
infects j the mouth and throat from the
poison of catarrh.
AH druggists sell charcoal In one form
or another, but probably the best char-
coal and the. most for the money Is in
Stuart's Absorbent Lozenges. They are
composed of the finest powdered Willow
charcoal and other harmless antiseptics in
tablet form, or rather in the form | of
large/pleasant tasting lozenges, the char-
coal" being mixed with honey. .
The daily use of these lozenges will soon
tell in a much improved condition of the
general health, better complexion, sweeter
breath and purer blood, and the beauty of
it is that no possible harm can result
from their continued use, but, on the con-
trary, great benefit. *-
A Buffalo physician In • speaking of the
benefits of charcoal: Bays:, "I advise Stu-
art's Absorbent- Lozenges to all patients
suffering from gas in - the stomach and
bowels,- and to clear the complexion and
purify, the breath, mouth and throat; I
also believe the liver is greatly benefited
by the daily use of them; they cost but 23
cents a, box at drugstores, and although
in" some sense a patent preparation yet I
believe I get more and better charcoal in
Stuart's Absorbent Lozenges than in any
of the ordinary charcoal tablets,"
