This report shows a balance in the gen

out of tne general revenue fund, is nearly
JoO.000 above the amount on hand. Fo

that the work of road building has been

All of the funds, according to the report,
are running low and the majority of these
depend for replenishment upon the revenue

from the dramshop fund. During the

PROSPERITY JUNE RISE.
Pontofflce Receipt Broke All Records
Eciunl Colnmnus and Tole
A striking example of the prosperity that
has come with McKinley's administration
can be found In the variation In postofflco
receipts. Here, as everywhere else, the
marks of prosperltj's rising tide are un
mlstakable and figures picked up almost
anywhere will show a uniform change for
the better. The June receipts for four
j ears past show this perhaps better than
do those of any other month.
For June of the present jear the re
ceipts were $33,164 13, the largest known in
the historj- of the postofilce. Tor June
last jear. the receipts were $30.272 3d In
marked contrast with these two are the
i June receipts for 1S9G and ISS7. which were
$42.896 03 and $11,C60.C9. respectlvelj-. The re
ceipts for the jear ending daj- before jes
terday were $C,334 87, or about $24,000 more
than the jetr before.
An indication of how Kansas City stands
for business among other cities of Its size
Is given in the fact that its receipts for the
fiscal jear Just closed are almost the com
bined receipts of Columbus and Toledo, O.,

STILL AFTER STONE.
Tnro More Worrnnts Out for the North
Ender Police Kindly Notify
Him lie I IVnntcd.
Two more warrants were issued by the
clerk of the police court yesterday after
"iioon for the arrest of Dick Stone, propri
etor of the notorious Oljmplc Club, at 559
Grand avenue. Both of them charge him
with running a gambling house. One of
hem was issued for Stone as the manager
of the club and the other was issued for
him as an Individual.
A warrant was also issued for Alf Taj--lor,
who was serving a sentence In the
workhouse for disorderly conduct, charging
him with having gambled by plaving a
game of craps in the rooms of the Olj mpic
Club. Taj lor is wanted more as a witness
against Stone than for anj- offense he com
mitted, and the city attorney is going to
see to it that he is not run out of the
Stone's pull with the police was forcibly
illustrated again yesterday. As soon as
the warrants were turned over to the police
an officer was sent to his clubroom to no
tifj' him that the documents were out for
his arrest and request him to appear at
police headquarters and provide bond.
The officer did not even take the warrants
along with him for service but paid Stone
the honor of going to his Grand avenue
den and informing him that he was wanted
to answer to two more charges.
Other offenders for whom warrants are
issued are dragged into the police station
and forced to go to jail unless thej- can
provide bond. Not so with Stone. A police
man goes to him with an apologj' for dis
turbing him even by notifjlng him that
warrants are out for his arrest. The pull
of the proprietor of the Oljmpic seems to
be all powerful.
But then Stone has been a faithful drawer
of water and hewer ot wood. His fidelitj
to the police machine has never been
doubted And for his fealtj- he has a right
to expect better treatment at the hands of
the police than other offenders.

I use to have sour stomach too, and I felt bloated after eatin?-. I
belched a good deal My tongue was coated a light brown, and my
mouth tasted badly in the morning. I called this Dyspepsia.
And then my liver was out of order. I had a sort of a yellow look
on my skin. I was so cross about the house that my wife hated to see
me come home One day I was constipated, and the next I had diar
rhoea. I called this Biliousness.
My kidneys were in bad shape. There were pains in the small of
my back and I had to get up often in the night to urinate, and there
was a scalding pain in passing water. I called this Kidney Trouble
One day I got hold of a book that told about a medicine called
Fe-ru-na, which the book said was good for Catarrh. The book also said
that Catarrh got into the stomach, liver, and kidneys as well as into the
head. That seemed queer to me, but I bought some Pe-ru-na, and it
cured every one of my troubles. So I have come to believe from actual
experience that Catarrh is what ails most folks. If such people will take
Pe-ru-na tliey will get well, but if they keep on taking stomach medi
cines, and liver medicines, and kidney medicines, they will remain sick.
Catarrnof somesort is what ails them, and Pe-ru-na is what will cure them.

ANOTHER IS UITH
A squad of soldiers, having in charge
three men who have disgraced their uni
forms, arrived at the Union depot, on their
way to the government prison at Leaven
worth, last evening, direct from Santiago
de Cuba. Two of tho men are murderers
and the other tried his best to become one.
Manacled and closely guarded the prison
ers presented a sorry spectacle as they sat
in the upstairs waiting room, awaiting their
train. The murderers, Charles Rieffel and
Charles Tarres, both white, were sentenced
to be shot at sunrise by the military court
that tried them, and all preparations for
inuir execution had bten made when an
order from the president arrived commut
ing tin Ir stntencts to imprisonment for life.
