if STATE JOURNAL, SATURDAY EVENLW, APRIL 14, 1S94. 1!: f I AX I i v. i .i i t 17 AT T1IE CITY HALL. Is the City in the Clutches of the Brick Men P WALKS LAID WHERE HOT HEEDED. Popular Indignation trowing at the Voracity and Xerve or the Brlelc Makers W ho Want to Plaster the Whole Town With Brie It at the El pcaM of the People. Nearly six miles of sidewalks have been condemned this spring and will be replaced with brick or other permanent walks. At present over 400 notices of condemnation of sidewalks have been served. These condemn each from one to six lots. It is thought that three lots to each notice is a fair average,- which would make 1,200 lot. The lots are each of 23 feet front, which would make 80, 000 feet, or 5 miles. The amount of condemned walk will exceed this before the city lets the contract for building it. The city clerk will probably not ad vertise for bids until June loth. - The contract is one of the most envied and closely contested of any at the city's dis posal. It is a "good thing" to the con tractor who i3 smooth enough to get it at smart figures. Complaints are numerous regarding condemned sidewalks. Brick walks are being - laid all over town where they are not needed. There are whole blocks of them in which the weeds have grown up between the bricks so that only a narrow foot-path is left. If there isn't enough travel to keep down the weeds then there isn't enough travel to demand a "permanent" brick walk. The brick walk business has come to be a nuisance. There are hundreds of feet of it that is below the level of the street and in wet weather these are nothing but canals of mud and water. There are miles of brick walks around unoccupied blocks in South Topeka that are remind ers of Boodle Councilman Lull. These sidewalks are half covered with earth from the neighboring lots which stand up above tbem for several feet. The people of Topeka are getting pretty tired of having brick walks forced upon them where they are neither needed nor wanted, simply because two or three brick manufacturers of Topeka want to dispose of their brick. These brick men have too much influence with the coun cil. It is high time they were choked oil; if they are not there will soon be a popular organized protest against them and their machinations. They are the ones who are trying to put through this scheme of tearing up the asphalt pave ments and putting down their brick in stead. The people won't stand it, and the sooner these brick men tiad it out the better. WE'RE SO POOR. But YV Spend $1,000 a Month on Grad ing tha Streets. Street Commissioner D. C. Naylor figured out today that the street force Las at its disposal the sim of $ 37.63 to carry it until May 1st, and pay all wages and incidental expenses. This is not enough to pay one teamster for his ser vices until that date. It is probable that the force will be reduced to no force at all before the end of the month, but not untii the $37.63 has been spent and considerable more with it. On the first of the month Mayor Har rison gave Street Commissioner Naylor instructions to limit the operating ex penses of the street force for the month to $1,000. Of this $960.37 has been spent. The bad weather and heavy grading work has made it almost impos sible to keep within the limitation set down by the mayor. If Mr. Naylor keeps within $1,30J he will have done well. CITY HALL NOTES. Items of Interest From tho Various Mu nicipal Departments. Mayor Harrison will announce the committees of the city council at its next meeting.

He ordered 800 male tags of a pattern that cost $13 a thousand, and 100 female tags of German silver that cost $25 a thousand. The streets and walks committee has under consideration a proposition to sell "Jumbo," the street roller, to a Kan sas City man, who has written for the best price the city will place on this once useful machine. "Jumbo" cost about $3,000, but the city doesn't know what would be a fair price, or what re port to make. SWEDISH MUSICIANS Entertala a Lire .audience at the First Methodist Church.

You May Be the Victim Them. of SO BE VERY CAREFUL. Here Are Some Valuable Suggestions) for Both Men and. Women at Jntt This Season of the year. "I ought to take some spring medicine; I must take something, I feel so misera ble." Such a remark as this is often heard at this time of the yer. Nearly every one seems to feel the need of some remedy, because the passing from winter to spring, with its resulting changes in clothing.food and exercise, has a very trying effect on the system. After the severe strains of winter, the health of most people is not so good as it ought to be. The appearance of warm, spring days finds them weak and debilitated, feeling the need of tone and strength. This is the reason why so many people are now complaining of tired, irritable, languid feelings. They wonder why it is they have these distressing symptoms. The best physicians say that this weak condition is caused by the liver being out of order. There is too much bile in the system. This brings on dyspepsia and other miserable feelings which make iife a burden. When the liver is irregular in its action the complexion becomes pale and sallow, there is a sense of oppression after eat ing, bloating and biliousness. Backaches, sideaches and headaches depress tne spir its, making the sufferer feel discouraged and despondent. It was to cure these disorders of the system that Warner's Safe Cure was specially designed. In the most trying cases this great remedy never once fails to give prompt relief. It is popular everywhere, because it is always reliable and effective. For the past fifteen years Warner's Safe Cure has been before the public and achieved a success never equaled in the history of medicine, not only in the United States and Canada, but in Great Britain, Germany, France and Australia. The greatest physicians have strongly recommended Warner's Safe Cure, because it is a purely vegetable compound, containing no harmful drugs or opiates, and because it does exactly as represented. It permanently cures all kidney, liver, uninary and nervous dis orders. It builds up the system and gives new life. When you are without appetite, are constipated, have a coated tongue, a nas ty taste in the mouth, sick headache, pains under the shoulder blades or in the region of the kidneys, your liver is out of order. You feel nervous, despondent, lack your accustomed energy. The safe cure will relieve all these symptoms. It will make you strong and well. Now is the time to put the system in sound condition. This is the season to lay in a stock of health to carry you through the year. Nature demands the use of a powerful and timely remedy. The testimony of the thousands who owe their health and strength to the great safe cure above mentioned proves that it is the most effective remedy, the most reliable and the best. IN LOWLY CIRCLES. Domestic Infelicity Among the Colored folks of Beed's Addition. The case of Chas. Hutchins came up in police court this morning. Hutchins is an old colored man who lives in Reed's addition. He is 74 years old and has a wife who is 21. She got tired of the old man and left him last week and set up house keeping by herself. On Tuesday Hutchins filed a suit for a divorce and on Tuesday night he went to his wife's house and created a disturb ance. She had him arrested. She appeared against him this morn ing. She said he had broken in a win dow when she refused to let him in and when she finally opened the door, had called her names and threatened to shoot her. She said he had a musket with him and shot after he had gone out of the house. When Hutchins took the stand he seemed very anxious to give the entire history of the trouble. "Now jedge," said he, fcdey done said I swored. I don't swore. I hab'ent swore for forty years." "What did you have the gun with you for?" "Well, I just tells you how it wuz. I was lookin' for dat man Buchanan. He's bin foolin' wid my wife. I didn't go to harm a hair ob her head and I done told her so." The judge told him that he had no business there whatever, as he and his wife had separated and he had applied for a divorce. He said that the only mit igating circumstance was that the defen dant was an old man. He was fined $10. Briffht Spring Days. The spring should be pre-eminently a season of contentment, happiness and hope. In these bright and pleasant months the country should enjoy its highest degree of tranquility and pros perity. But spring, it is well known, is often a period of discomfort and disturb ance in the physical system. Important organs of the body become torpid or irreg ular in their action, and the fact is inst antly reflected in the mental condition of the individual. A disordered liver means disordered nerves and a dull and un steady brain. A thing which will bring the physical system into harmony with budding nature confers an enormous benefit upon the nation, besides the mere allaying of physical discomfort. Hood's Sarsaparilla does this, as thousands of grateful and happy men and women can testify, and increased use of this standard spring medicine is of more real practical importance in promoting health and quiet in the business world than reams of abstract theorizing.

There is no man more popular among 1 the farmers of the country than Hon. J. M. Tinkham, whose likeness is here given. A man of acknowledged ability, of com manding presence, an excellent presiding ofScer, he will undoubtedly fill with credit the office to which the farmers of his own state wish to elect him. Ten years as agricultural editor of the Freeman and Watchman of Mortpelier, Vt., secretary and president for several years each of the Vermont state dairy men's association, and employed by the boards of agriculture of Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and New York at their meetings, assistant commis sioner of agricultural affairs, dairy com missinnpr at the world's fair at New Or leans, member of his state legislature, where he was chairman of the house committee on agricultural, and recently accredited by the secretary of agricultu ral to Europe to study the labor problem, hn in nn of the most oonspicuous repre sentatives of the farming interests of the country. Some time ago Mr. Tickham was pros trated with heat in the hay field, and from the consequent derangement of the svstem suffered severely from dizziness, sb much so that walking was difficult.

He is now residing at North Pomfret, Vt, and the citizens of the state will wisely insist upon his going into politics so far as to take the lieutenant governorship. Mr. Tinkham's experience with the wonderful remedy that makes people well and is as superior to all other spring medicines as milk is more nourishing than water, is not surprising. Men and women all over the country are finding strength and freedom from disease in Paine's celery compound. It clears the sluggish blood of the un healthy humors that a poor circulation and faulty assimilation tend to produce. It corrects unhealthy nervous action and feed3 the nerve centers with just the ele ments needed to build them up again into healthy tissue. Prof. Edward E. Phelps, M. D., LL. D.,"of Dartmouth col lege gdiscovered the formula for the famous Paine's celery compound after long years of study of the deep changes that take pKice in wornout, disordered nerve tissues. Dr. Phelps was accustom ed to explain in his lectures his mastery over diseases due to bad blood and ner vous weakness as follows: "In diseases of the liver, kidneys, and heart some thing is in the blood that ought not to be there.

Paines cel ery compound embodies these advanced ideas regarding the blood and nerves. As was to be expected, so remarkable a discovery has not failed to attract the attention of scient tic men all over this country and Europe. Medical journals have given Paine's celery compound much discussion. Paine's celery com pound is extensively used in all the largo homes and institutions for sick and aged persons throughout the country. ToJay it stands unquestioned as the most valu able and reliable remedal agent at tho physician's command for curing neural gia, rheumatism, dyspepsia, inability to sleep and diseases of the heart, liver, and kidneys. It is prescribed by the entire medical faculty. It is the greatest spring medicine, "the only spring medicine worthy the name," says one physician of the highest stand ing in the profession. For languor, de bility and all forms of nervous weakness it has proven its invaluable curative power. It makes people of all ages and occupations well and active. The famous Dr. Parr, who lived to such a patriarchal grand old age, was accus tomed to say: "Now' is the watchword of the wise. 'Now' is on the banner of the prudent."
