The check for $100 which P. D.

cates humane feeling on his part,

Crop reports to the Illinois de
partment of ngricultare, under date
of August, show an increase in area

2,331,000 acres, and in the southern
division of the state, 1,029.000 acres.

1897 corn crop of Illinois promises
to be a record breaker.
TriB talkof Gov. Tanner about the
Rock Island people going to Fulton
with "so mu'eh gusto and show" to
recover their own property is evi
dence of how much some men can
say of what they know little abont.
The governor of the state rho'nld
have been the last man to jump at
conclusions, or to side with any one
connty in the state over which he
presides against another until he
knows the facts and realizes the cir.
cumstances in other werBs until he
knows what he is talking aboat. The
Boek Island men made no "gusto
and show." They went peaceably
inclined, and with a slnglo purpose,
and that to claim the property that
had been often awarded them, but
persistently denied them. The gov
ernor had better speak and act on
the known lawlessness at Fulton,
and the part Iowa men and arms
took lastead of indulging in vagaries
and reading enrtain lectures at a
distance to the Woodmen of Rock

The Chicago TInies-lIerald, good

Tanner's political blight" has fall

ear infirmary. It states that the
governor has insulted distinguished
medical men who are no politicians,
and has now set out to use the otti.
cial places of the infirmary as re
wards for his political henchmen.
'The Times-Ilerald says:
Since thelnstltation was fonoded,
some 20 years ago, all administra

THAT KANSAS MISSIVE.

The fact that Miss Carrie Dion,
the girl who told the first story of
Mrs. Porter's alleged poisoning of
her husband, was to be put on the
stand Saturday, drew a large andienoe
to the noted mnrder trial. Standing
room was at a premium. Women
made up fully one-half the number
State's Attorney Graves is present
ing a much stronger case than was
anticipated. Discussion of the morn
ing was over the admissibility of the
letters bearing the cross in the cor
ner and the address "Carrie Dion.
Colona, 111.," and ended in a victory
ior me states attorney. Judge ttest
ruling that they should be admitted
as evidence. ..
Sheriff Quinn told the story of
Mra. Porter's examination at Uene
seo, of her trip to Colona in a car
riage the night she was taken to
jail. Regarding that trip he sub
stantiated the testimony of Liverv
man Charles W. Young. He states
also that on the trip Mrs. Porter ac
cused Miss Dion of poisoning Mr.
Porter, and declared that it was
Miss Dion who was gnilty of all the
crime. The sheriff also testified that
after the antopsy he took the vital
organs of the body and sealed them
ia a jar. This was delivered to Dr.
Spencer, of Geneseo, at the Geoeseo
In cross-examination by Attorney
Hand, the statement was brought
cut that the refusal to admit Mrs.
Porter's attorney to see her was by
mistake. The sheriff was absent at
the antopsy, and while away heard
that some stranger was going to call
on Mrs. Porter.
Deputy Sheriff Stiers was called to
identify a letter taken from ' Mrs.
Porter while in jail. The contents
of this letter have not yet been in
troduced in evidenee, but it is sur
tnised that it is a letter from the
Kansas, man; notable in the case, and
in it he talks of the fortunate taking
off of Mr. Porter. There is a kind
of interest in this letter, but the
state has not yet introduced it.
The affidavit to Dr. Hcckstone,
who is at present in Sweden, was
next introduced. The doctor's affi
davit was to the effect that the vital
organs were in a condition that
would result from chronio arsenical
poisoning. He was explicit in his
statement that no poison was fonnd,
but that if poison was given a cer
tain length uf time before death, it
would be eliminated from the sys

A Warning Note.
Those Who Heed It Not

A note of warning.
At first the faintest echo.
It strikes the back. -
A peculiar warning not heard, bnt
It increases day by day.
The back cries out rebels.
The aches, pains and lameness
Make life a misery become nn
bearable. ' -
Do yon understand the warning?
Do yon realiae 'tis kidney talk?
The kidneys are on a atrike;
They have been overworked.
Nature intends you to know this,
And has only one way to warn yon.
The kidneys are located near the
small of the back.
They are composed of delicate
fibres that filter the blood. . ...
Stooping positions, a strain or cold
often clog the filters.
This is serious when yon don't
know what to do.
Backache is the beginning; lame
and weak back follows.
The filters fail to do their work.
Kidney disease develops.
The nrine is too frequent.
The calls of nature wake you up
A brick-colored deposit shows the
trace of failing kidneya.
The uric acid is going the wrong
It is passing through the blood.
Poisoning the whole system.
Rheumatic pains and many aches
All this from a small beginning.
So easy to enre, too, when yon

HEART DISEASE Is curable. "For over
forty years." writes Daniel Myera of
Two Taverns. I'a., on Aug. 10. 1996.
"I safTered with heart disease. First a alight
palpitation, gradually growing worse. Then
shortness of breath, sleeplessness, smother
ing sensations and much pain in the region
of the heart alarmed me and I consulted a
physician. Receiving no benefit I tried
others and a number
of remedies, spending
a large amount of
money, but finally be
came so bad that It was
unsafe for me to leave
home. I commenced
using Dr. Miles' Ber.rt
Cure two years aha.
For eighteen months I have been well. Al
though 72 years of age I can go where I wish
and 1 sleep all night and wake up as cheer
ful as a babe and completely rested.'
