What used to bo called female diseases
by tho medical profession is now called
pelvic catarrh. It has been found by
experience that catarrhal diseases of the
pelvic organs are tho cause of most cases
of female disease.
Dr. Hartman was among the first of
. America's great physicians to make this
discovery. For forty years he has been
treating diseases peculiar to women, and
long ago he reached the conclusion that
a woman entirely free from catarrhal
affection of these organs would not be

began using Peruna for these cases and
found it so admirably adapted to their
permanent cure that Peruna has now
become tho most famous remedy for

Two Societies are Attacking
Recent Acts of Their
SENSATIONAL GHABGES MADE
By Fraternal Army Members Court
of Honor Purchase
Fraternal insurance circles in this
city and surrounding- towns where
these forms of secret societies are
very strong are in a high state of agi
tation. They have been aroused in
the last few weeks by two incidents
and instead, of growing less the dis
turbance seem to be on the increase
The transfer of the Fraternal Army
of America to the Loral Americans
chronicled in The Argus ten days ago
has caused a wave of dissention
among the rank and tile, and interest
ing, not to say sensational develop
ments are possible.
Some very strange stories have been
told concerning this deal involving the
state insurance department as a party
to the transaction. Open charges are
made by some of the members-of the
Fraternal Army that an examination
of the company's books are deferred
by the department to gire the officers
of the order time in which to make
the trausfcr, aml'thnt in the transfer
all the assets of the Fraternal Army
disappeared and cannot be found
The charge is openly made, and
threats that an investigation shall be
made are heard. It is stated that a
bill for injunction and accounting is
to be filed in the Springfield circuit
court asking the court to prevent the
merger, and to order the officers of
the two orders to make a strict ac-
counting of all transactions. Whether
the men who are making this charge
and threat will carry it out ind sub
stantiate the former and carry out
the latter is to be seen. Friends of the
officers of both organizations declare
that the charges are rot and that a
full and free investigation is courted
and that the consolidation is in tin
interest of the policy holders of both
societies. t is denied also that the
insurance department has had any
thing whatever to do with the trans
action, and that the charges and ru
mors are wholly unfounded.
Court of Honor Trouble.
Members of the Court of Honor
have complained i f the purchase of
the Palmer place at the corner of
Second and Adams streets. Spring
field, as the national headquarters of
the older, and it is learned that an in
vestigation may be asked. The pro
pertr was bought by a local syndicate
for $l 3.0O0. That is the figures given
on the records. A few weeks later a
deed was recorded transferring the
property to the Court f Honor for
$2G,.10O. an advance of $13,500. It is
now alleged that a few davs before
the Court of Honor bought the place
is was offered on the open market for
$19,000. Members of the order say the
price was too high, and that the com
mittee was not justified in paying
more than double what the pla.ee had
brought only -i few weeks before. The
National Court of Honor made an ap
propriation of $.".0,000 for headquar
ters in Springfield. The committee
believed that this house could be
t ran.-formed into an ideal headquar
ters by the expenditure of a few
thousand dollars. The price paid was
not considered too high on account of
the amount of ground, location and
general adaptability to the use for
which it was wanted. Tt was argued
that with the same amount of money
as convenient a location and as large
a piece of ground and as good a build
inc could not be secured. A number
of well known real estate men agreed
that the price was not too high and
the deal was made, but it seems some
of the members of the order are dis
Hal I!eid has woven a pretty story
around the title of his late play, "At
Cripple Creek," presented last evening

'"An American Gentleman." which is

of those plays which claims the at
tention, not only of regular theatre
goers, but of those who seldom at
tend dramatic performances. It is
thoroughly clean in tone, and that
means a great deal in these days of
French farce and decadent drama.
Its plot is original, and its sentiment
refreshingly wholesome. The fact
that "An American Gentleman is
wonderfully dramatic certainly dem
onstrates that questionable themes
are not essential to dramatic usages.
It is particularly fitting that such a
wholesome American play is to intro
duce such a charming young Ameri
can actress as Miss (Jauntier l'ottery.

The attraction at the Illinois next
Monday will be that popular and suc
cessful melodrama. "In Convict
Stripes." The play tells a powerful
story of the human emotions, love,
jealousy and intrigue occupying most
prominent parts. It is the drama of
the home, its location is the bright
southland, and in its composition,
comedy and pathos are so skillfully
blended that the audience is never in
danger of witnessing any over elabor
ation. The love of a strong man for
a good woman, the villainy of a drun
ken father and a scapegrace brother,
and the final reward of virtue form
the plot and counterplot of this thrill
ing play. Sensational climaxes are
effected by clever stage methods and
a most realistic view of n southern
convict camp is shown in the thirl
act. . The play will be mounted most
generously and its interpretation will
