James E. Anient, for a time super

The costly f ornitnre purchased for
the private otliie of President James
K. Ament, of the Alva normal school,
was the subject of several violent
speeches in the last legislature, and
provoked considerabio comment in
Oklahoma newspapers. Members of
the legislature who were taken on a
junket to Alva saw tho furniture and
several who came from rural districts
threw up their hands in astonishment
at its magnificence. The criticism
aroused soon passed away, however,

Buffalo. Sept. The following re
port of the autopsy upon the remains
of I'resident McKlnley was issued at
o p. 111. Saturday:
"The bullet which struck over the
breast bone did not pass through the
skin, and did little harm. The other
bullet passed through loth walls of
the stomach near its lower border.
Both holes were found to be perfectly
closed by the stitches, but the tissue
around each hole had become gangren
ous. After passing through the stom
al !i the bullet passed Into the back
walls of the abdomen, hitting and tear
ing tic upper end of the kidney. This
portion of the lillet track was also
gangrenous, the gangrene involving
tho--pancreas. The bullet has not yet
beeu found. There was no sign of
peritonitis or clisease of other organs.
The heart walls were very thin.
"There was no evidence of any nt
rempt at repair on the part of nature,
and death resulted from the gangrene,
which affected the stomach around the
bullet wounds, as well as thp tissues
around the furttnf course of the bullet.
Death was unavoidable by any surgic
al or medieal treatment, and was the
direct result of the bullet wound."
The foregoing Is signed by fourteen
physicians. Including Rlxey. Mann.
Mynter. Park, Wasdin, Janeway nnd

bullet was poisoned, thus accounting
for the gangrene: but none of the other

THE BIRTH OF THE MOON.
When the Earth Waa a Sphere of
Lava, Molten and Flattened.
The earth revolves ou its axis once
Iv. 21 hours. Millions of years ago the
day was 22 hours; millions of years be
fore It was 21 hours. As we look back
ward Into time we find the earth re
volving faster and faster. There was
e time, ages ago, long before geology
begins, when the earth was rotating in
a day of five or six hours in length. In
the remotest past the earth revolved in
a day of about five hours. It could re
volve no faster than this and remain a
single unbroken mass.
It was at this time that the moon
was born separated, broken off from
the parent mass of the earth. The
earth was then a molten, flattened
sphere of lava. Its whole body was
fluid. The tides, which now are small,
superficial and. so to. say, local, were
then universal and Immense. They oc
curred at short Intervals. The whole
surface of our globe was affected.
And the corresponding lunar tides In
the fluid, molten moon were Indefinite
ly greater still.
Our day Is now 24 hours: the distance
of the moon is now 240.000 miles.
When our day was about five hours
long, the moon was In contact with the
earth's surface. It had just broken
away from its pnrent mass. As the
length of the terrestrial day Increased,
so did the distance of the moon. The
two quantities are connected by in
exorable equations. If one varies, so
must the othe. Whenever the rotation
time of n planet Is shorter than the
period of revolution of its satellite, the
effect -of their mutual action Is to ac
celerate the motion of the satellite and
to force It to move in a larger orbit
to increase Its distance, therefore.
The da j- of the earth is now shorter
than tho month tho period of revolu
tion of the moon. The moou is there
fore slowly receding from us, nnd it has
lM'en -receding for thousands of cen
turies. But the day of the earth is. as
we have seen, slowly growing longer.
The finger of Ihe tides is always press
Ing upon the rim of our huge flywheel
and slowly but surely lessening the
speed of Its rotation. So long as the
terrestrial day Is shorter than the
lunar month, the moon will continue to
recede from us. Frofessor E. S. Hol-

ASTHMA CAN BE CURED.
A Noted Phjslclaa Will Prove Thle toSnf
f erera In Rock Island Thursday.
The astonishing statement tha
asthma can be cured, coming from to
well known authority as Dr. KoaoJph
SchlfTmann, will be of interest to
asthma sufferers. The experience of
most asthmatics has been that little
f any relief has been afforded them
by the methods heretofore employed
and, in fact, the disease has up to
now been regarded as incurable. This
noted physician ha3, however, after
a Iife-iocg study ot asthma and
kindred diseases, discovered a rem
ody which not only instantly
relieve: the severest cases of
asthma, hay fever and bronchitis.
but has actually cured thousands
whose cases had been pronounced in
curable. So complete is Dr. bchifT
mann's confidence in his remedy that
he requests this paper to announce
that all day Thursday, Sept. 19. he
offers a liberal sample box of "fcchiu
man's Asthma Cure" free of charge
to all persons applyiag at T. 11
Thomas' drug store, Seventeenth
street and Second avenue.
Dr. Schiffman believes that an ac
tual test will be the most convincing,
and in fact the only war to oversome
the natural prejudice ot thousands of
astnamatics wno have heretofore
sought relief in vain. Persons living
out of town will receive a package
free by writing direct to Dr. B.
Schiffmann, 870 Jackson street, St.

enclosing a 2 cent stamp.
