BLUE BLOOD FELINES
PREPARATIONS FOR CAT SHOW
ARE ON AN ELABORATE
SOME DOGS WILL BE THERE
Canine Will Be of Diminutive Size
and Will Keep Company
Willi Coons, Fox
The cat show, which is to be held Jan.
23, 24 and 25 here in St. Paul, for the ben
efit of the Harriet day nursery, will prob
ably be the most elaborate event of the
kind ever held in St. Paul. The quar
ters secured, 05 East Seventh street, are
commodious and well lighted. The cats
are to be benched, one foot apart, so
that if one of the pussies is inclined to
be quarrelsome he will have no opportu
nity to vent his malice or communicate
his opinions. The main hall will be pret
tily decorated in Persian style. There
will be plenty of palms and comfortable
chairs. A small room will be fitted up
for a woman's reception room, with rugs
and easy chairs. A musical programme,
piano and vocal, will be given every aft
ernoon and evening. The hall will be
open from 10 a. m. to 10 p. m. every
day. In addition to the cats, there will
be a toy dog exhibit, for which a num
ber of Yorkshires, blacks and tans and
poodles have been entered. There will
also be on exhibition some coons, a red
fox, a bald headed eagle and some tame
skunks. Mrs. R. B. Beson is superintend
ent of the show, and W. W. Good is as
sistant superintendent. Dr. Richard Price,
the veterinary doctor, will look after the
health of the stock.
A number of prizes have already been
offered. Dr. E. H. Whitcomb will give
a loving cup for the best cat; Dr. Ohage
will give a loving cup for the best white

A Simple Internal Remedy Hakes Re
markable Cures of Catarrh.
People who have used sprays, inhalers,
salves and washes for catarrh and have
found how useless and inconvenient they
are, will be agreeably surprised at results
following the use of a pleasant, internal
remedy in tablet form; druggists every
where admit that Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets, which they sell at 50 cents for full
sized treatment is the safest, most effec
tive and most popular of all catarrh rem
Nearly all cheap cough mixtures and
throat lozenges contain opiates; these
cheap medicines give a temporary relief,
especially with little children by destroy
ing nerve sensation; the irritation in
throat, which causes coughing is tem
porarily removed, not by j-emoving the
cause but by deadening the nerves of feel
ing the irritation is not felt although It
is still there and will promptly return.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets is the best
remedy to remove catarrhal secretion,
whether in the nose, throat or stomach,
because they are composed of wholesome
antiseptics like Red Gum, Blood Root
etc.; when you use these tablets you
know what you are putting into your
system and not taking chances with co
caine, opiates or similar poisons found in
so many catarrh cures and cough medi
Dr. Ramsdell in commenting on catarrh
cures says: "I can heartily recommend
Stuart s Catarrh Tablets, because they
contain no cocaine nor other dangerous
drug found in so many advertised catarrh
cures. I have known of many cases of
long standing catarrh of the head and
throat completely cured by the daily use
of these tablets for several weeks. One
case in particular, which I could not
reach with an inhaler or spray and where
the catarrh caused daily headaches and
a noticeable loss of hearing was entirely
cured by ' this harmless but effective
remedy." *. \
Dr. Wainwright says: "I never hesi
tate to prescribe Stuart's Catarrh Tablets
for catarrhal headaches and catarrhal
deafness because I know them to be per
fectly safe for child or adult and have
seen many remarkable cures resulting
from their regular daily use; because they
are advertised and sold in drug stores Is
no reason why any good physician should
not use them, because we should seize
upon the means of cure wherever found."
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are especially
valuable for catarrhal colds in children
■because they are pleasant to the taste

severe colds ana croup at the very be

JUDGMENT AGAINST NORTHWEST
ERN TO BE PAID BY MARY
LAND CASUALTY CO.
DISPUTED CLAUSE IN POLICY
Judge Kelly Makes a Ruling as to
the Meaning of the Word "Im
mediately" — Perplexing
Judge Kelly yesterday filed a decision
in the case of the Northwestern Tele
phone company against the Maryland
company, awarding the plaintiff a judg
ment of $750.
The Maryland Casualty company is a
concern that insures corporations from
having personal damage suits brought
against them by members of their em
ploy through accidents or negligence. It
was to recover the amount of a judg
ment that the telephone company brought
suit against the casualty company.
The principle of law involved in the
case was regarding a clause in the cas
ualty company's policy which provides
that the assured shall notify the head
office in Baltimore immediately after an
accident has occurred. Judge Kelly, in
his decision, rules that the word imme
diately must be considered in its broadest
sense, and that a notification by the as
sured aS soon as it learns of tne facts Is
Orial Harrell, an employe of the North
western Telephone company, was digging
a hole for a telephone pole Oct. 14, 1899,
for the line on Mississippi street. While
working in the hole the earTft caved in
on him. He received no apparent se
rious injury at the time, and the evi
dence brought forth by the telephone
company showed that outside of the
crew and foreman no other employes of
the company were aware of the mishap.
Accidents appear to have followed Har
rell closely, for on Oct. 30 he fell from
the cross-trees of a telephone pole and
sustained some injuries.
Harrel brought suit for personal dam
ages for $50,000 against the telephone com
pany Nov. 30, 1900. Immediately upon be
ing served with a complaint, the tele
phone company notified the casualty com
pany, which supposed the suit brought
against the telephone company resulted
from the accident of Oct. 20. The casual
ty company thereupon entered a defense
but learning that the suit was brought
to secure damages for the prior accident
withdrew Its defense.
Harrel secured a judgment against the
telephone company for $750 for his in
juries, and thiS the telephone company
sought to recover from the casualty
company. ■J, We the judgment granted
by Judge Kelly yesterday, the telephone
company is awarded costs of the ca"e

CLUB WOMEN'S PLAN
QPMING FEDERATION LUNCHEON
; EXPECTED TO PROVE A BRlL
;:t'y - LIANT FUNCTION
TO ATTEND ST. LOUIS MEETING.
Several Minnesota Women to Take
Part in Discussion .of Louisiana
Purchase Monument — Favor ■ T
State National Park.
Naturally, the interest of Minnesota
club women centers just now about the
coming federation luncheon, which is to
be held Wednesday, Feb. 12,. In the uni
versity armory. ._ All the arrangements
are In the hands -of the members of
the Fifth district, who are working
zealously to make the forthcoming
luncheon a brilliant event in club annals.
About TOO club women are expected to
be present. It has been hinted by those
who : disapprove of the choice of Aash
Wednesday as the date of the luncheon
that a number of club women will on this
account remain away, Put the majority
of the members apparently have no fears
on this score. They state that club life
has made women _ reasonable, if it' has
done nothing else, ai_id : that justice to
out of town club:members caused those
who have charge of the arrangements
for the breakfast to seize upon this par
ticular date as the most available one.
Mrs. C.7 A. Dibble, vice president of the
Fourth district, who was- selected to in
troduce the new federation president,
Mrs. La Penotiere, has been compelled to
decline the honor. Another St. Paul
woman will be selected in her place.
There -will be only three toasts respond
ed to, "The Women of the Northwest,"
"Our Advisory Board," "The Club Hus
bands" and "What is Worth While."
Mrs. A. T. Bigelow, the chairman of
the programme committee, has already
designated the women whom she de
sires to- respond to t.iese toasts', but
she has not yet received their accept
ance. An attractive musical pro
gramme is being arranged by Mrs.
Booth, of Minneapolis, chairman, of the
music committee. Miss Margaret J.
Evans, honorary president of the federa
tion, will give a report of the national
board meeting, held recently in New
York, and the matter of the Louisiana
purchase memorial will also be consider
ed by some club woman not yet desig
nated: The breakfast will be served
promptly at 12:30, and - ill be preceded
by the executive board meeting.
A number of Minnesota club women
will attend the conference of club women,
which will be held the 20th of this month
in St. Louis. The meeting is primarily
to decide the nature of the memorial
which the club women of America have
decided to erect in commemoration of the
date of the Louisiana purchase. Mrs.
C. W. Wells, of Minneapolis, will be
one of the delegates from Minneapolis.
It is probable that St. Paul will also
have a delegate, but just who this will
be has not yet been decided. Mrs. La
Penotiere, president of the state feder
ation, has asked Mrs. "W. F. Graves to
represent St. Paul, but the latter has
been forced to decline.
The form that the memorial shall take
will be decided at the conference. Club
women outside of Minnesota seem to fa
vor an institution memorial, but St.
Paul women, and, indeed, Minnesota
women generally, seem to prefer an art
memorial. The New Century club of St.
Paul and the Tourist club of Minneapo
lis have both expressed their preference
for an art memorial. The proposition
to combine the figures of Jefferson, Na
poleon and Livingstone in a memorial
statue has not met with decided favor,
because of the fact that American wom
en disapprove of Napoleon's attitude
toward women.particularly his treatment
of Empress Josephine. No objection is
made to the other two men. -
The Woman's Council of the Woman's
Civic league has already discussed at
considerable length, and, presumably,
come to some decision in regard to a
permanent home for the league. The
result of this discussion or decision has
not been made known, but it is under
stood that a report of the committee ap
pointed to look into the matter—and this
committee includes several members, of
the council—will be made at the next
meeting of the league, Jan. 17. The pro
gramme for this meting will include a
talk on "Woodwork" by Mrs. A. E. Hel
nick, president of the Arts and Crafts
society, of Minneapolis. There will also
be an exhibit of woodwork. Jan. 31 T.
G. Holyoke will give a talk on "Land
scape Architecture in Relation to Build
ing." A number of slides will illustrate
Club women who are working hard
in the interests of the Minnesota na
tional parkand no one is entitled to
more credit for planning and carrying
out a campaign for the preservation of
Minnesota's last big pine forest than Mrs.
William Ely Bramhall, of this city—are
busy now arranging a compact for issu
ance for the 20th of this month all the
facts that can be quoted are arguments
in favor of the proposed park. This
pamphlet will be mailed to prominent
Minnesota business men in order that
each one may study the club women's
side of the question and decide for him
self. The jobbers' union, to which was
addressed recently a letter written by
Mrs. E. N. La Penotiere, the club state
federation president, in regard to the
park, has as yet taken no action in the
matter, preferring to wait until the mem
bers had looked into the matter more
At the conference of the fourth and
fifth federation districts held last week
at the home -of Mrs. C. J. Hunt, of
Macalester, Mrs. E. G. Butts, of Still
water, treasurer of the Minnesota Fed
eration of Women's Clubs, : spoke in
favor of the per capita tax. At the ex
ecutive board meeting, which will be
held before the federation luncheon Feb.
12, the Wisconsin plan of taxing clubs is
to be considered. The plan is a gradu
ated system "of dues, whereby the clubs
having a score or more" of members pay
a certain amount; those having more
than fifty: members, a larger -amount;
and those having a hundred or more a
stilt larger amount. By "this plan the"
larger clubs are not compelled to pay
every year* an exorbitant amount, nor
are the small clubs expected to pay an
amount wholly disproportionate to their

from the latest mortal statistics published
by the government and "-entirely agree
with the archives kept at The Hartman
i The map is made in four shades. The
lightest shade shows the States which
have the lowest per cent of deaths due
to catarrhal diseases. In these States
very close to *? per cent of all deaths la
1890 were due to catarrhal diseases.
That is to say, four out of every ten

In the States of next darker shade the
per cent varies from 42 to 45. In the
next darker shade, 45 to 48 per cent of
the whole number of deaths resulted from

we have indicated the States in which
over 50 per cent, or one-half or more, of
all the deaths were directly traceable to
catarrh as the cause.
This is an appalling state of affairs.

fact that catarrh has become a nation

twelve years. Six months ago I had to
be propped up in bed at night and lie
on my side for fear of choking. 1 did

myself perfectly cured. My breathing is

The following are testimonials from
thankful women prominent in society and
business who use Peruna:
Mrs. Jane Gift, of Hebbardsville, Ohio,
"I think I would have been dead long
ago had it not been for Peruna. I have
used it in my family for coughs and

has added years to my life."

the nerves become strong and the mu

A great many remedies for temporary
relief have been devised from time to
time, such as sprays, snuffs, creams and!
other local applications, but, as a rule, j
the medical profession has little or no j
enthusiasm in the treatment of latarrh.
It is generally pronounced by them to bo 7
incurable. It therefore created a great !
sensation in medical circles when Dr. J
Hartman announced that he had devised.
a compound:- which would cure catarrtV
':■ permanently. The remedy was named Pe
ra-na, and in a short time-became known
to thousands of catarrh sufferers north,
south,- east and west.
Letters testifying to the fact that Pe
runa is a radical cure for catarrh began '
to pour in from all directions. Thou
sands of such letters are on file in th©
office of the Pe-ru-na Medicine Company. j
These letters are not used for publica
tion except by the express wish of the
writer. A pamphlet filled with such let-,
ters will be. sent to any address free. I
This book should be read by all who
doubt the curability of catarrh. f
If you do not receive prompt and satis-'
factory results from the use of Peruna,'
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a
full statement of your case, and he will
be pleased to give you his valuable ad

conditions are not to be found on thf
Panama route. ".;
Taking up the meteorological and at«
mospheric conditions, Mr. Moersch say.,
that the rainfall and resulting river
freshets are much greater on the Nica
raguan than the Panama line, and conse
quently the humidity, which is conducive
to fevers and other forms of illness, arV
also greater. Regarding the Panama
route in this particular, he says there'
exists a complete record of observations,- -■
extending over a number of years, and
the conditions can be calculated upon
with reasonable accuracy, while the data
in regard to the other line is much less,
The time of transit through the Pan
ama canal, he says, would be About
one-third less than would be consumed^- 7
.in passing through .he Nicaragua**
canal. -•--*. . -'. '!
Finally/Mr. Moersch expresses the be
lief that the United States jj government
is in a position to get just as favorably
concessions from the republics of Colom
bia as from the other South American
republics. , ' - ■_
