A question seems to have arisen as to
whether Lord Roberts is a great gen

that the surrender of Pretoria was

DEFEAT OF WOMAN SUFFRAGE
The proposed amendment to the con
stitution of Oregon, granting the fran
chise to women was defeated at the
election last Tuesday.
In the ten years from 1889 to 1899, the
women of Colorado, Utah fend Idaho
acquired the full right to vote. Illinois,
Connecticut and Ohio granted women
school suffrage. Minnesota permitted
them to vote for members of library
boards. Iowa gave them a very re
stricted right to vote on questions in
volving the issue of municipal bonds.
Louisiana empowered taxpaying wo
men to vote on all questions, submitted
But In the same ten years three dif
ferent suffrage bllla failed in Arizona,
three In Arkansas, two in South Da
kota, four in California, and four bills
Connecticut. In Delaware the consti-
out the word male. In Illinois four
: suffrage bills failed, and two failed in
In Ohio a suffrage amendment was
, defeated, and two suffrage bills failed
, to pass. In the state of Washington
, a suffrage amendment was defeated at
j the polls, although in the territory of
AVashlngton woman's suffrage was the
! rule. Woman's suffrage was no more
i popular In Mississippi and Missouri
, tnan in Rhode Island and Vermont, no
i more popular in an old state like Maine
j than in a new state like South Dakota.
In 1$!5 all voters in Massachusetts,
' men and women, who were eligible to
I vote for school committees, were al-
? lowed to vote on the question: "Is it
expedient that municipal suffrage be
, granted to women?" Of the men, 86.970
voted yes and 186,976 no. Of the 575,
, 000 women entitled to vote more than
, 5&Q.000 declined to do so, and less than
4 per cent, voted yes. In Chicago, 29,
Sis women registered for the school
elections of 1S94. but 1,488 for those of
1898. In Cleveland, the woman's school
vote fell from 5,831 to 82 between 189

" After spending two years in tak
ing all kinds of medicines that were
suggested for eczema, but without
avail, my mother was induced to take
Hood's SarsapariUa. The result was
wonderfully gratifying. Her limbs
had been terribly lacerated by the dis
ease, and there were times when fire
could not have been more painful.
She was, in fact, almost wild. Two
bottles of Hood's SarsapariUa com
pletely cured her, and not a traee of
eczema was left." E. W. Deckek,

" Hood's SarsapariUa has been a
great blessing to me. I was weak,
irritable, tired and nervous; had no
appetite and was always sad and des
pondent. One day I got hold of a
little book about Hood's SarsapariUa.
I looked it over and resolved to try a
bottle. I was better before it was
gone, so I kept on until 1 had taken
five bottles. I can now sleep well,
feel cheerful and can do all my work,
including pluin sewing, and I can
walk two or three mile3 a day. I am
65 years old and now feel that life is
worth living." Mrs. Emma Smith,

As many counties in the state are un

that every part of the state should be rep
resented in the convention. We, there

Kansas, who represent the home of the
state, to come.
We invite every one who is ready to
ally himself with the only party that
stands firmly and unflinchingly for the
prohibition of the liquor traffic, in state
and nation, to come with us, and aid In

Her laws are nullified, and her constitution
disregarded. Her political leaders prac
tically ignore Prohibition. The party in
power has signally failed to fulfill its
pledges to enforce the law.
In many of our cities and villages li
quors are freely sold, while comparatively
little effort is made by the officials to pre
vent it. We must call a halt and snow
politicians and liquor men that we mean
business. The friends of Prohibition must
be loyal and true to their principles. We
must come together, with one accord in
God's name throw our banner to the
breeze and rally around it!
Hon. Oliver W. Stewart, our newly ap
pointed national chairman, will attend
the convention and address a mass meet
ing in representative hall on Wednesday
evening. It will be worth a trip to To

address the convention, and good music
will enli"en all the sessions.
The state central committee will meet

FELL FROM WHEEL DEAD
Sudden Death of A. Patten, a
Cyclist, at Noon Today.
Andy Patten, a colored man, fell from
his bicycle at Tenth and Kansas ave
nues at noon today and died almost in
stantly. Patten, who was a horse traded, was
riding his bicycle south on Kansas ave
nue and turned west on Tenth street.
He had ridden but about 50 feet west
when he suddenly pitched headlong
from his wheel and did not move after
striking the ground. Henry Steel and
James Richardson saw him fall. They
carried him to the shade of a building
and endeavored to revive him. He
breathed once or twice and was dead.
Coroner Hogeboom wa called and had
the body removed to the undertaking
establishment of De Moss & Penwell,
where an inquest will be held.
Patten probably died from heart fail
ure. It was thought at first that he
had been injured by the fall. He was
a well known colored man.
BAKING PROBLEM SOLVED.
A Method of Indefinitely Keeping
Fresh the Oven's Best Products,
Though American bakers have for
years excelled, many of their daintiest
creations could never be enjoyed at
their best because it had been impos
sible to protect them from moisture,
odors, dust or germs and keep them
fresh until they reached the consumer.
Now an American's inventive genius
has intervened, and it is possible to
have the best efforts of the best bakers
in the world as fresh ana as dainty as
if just from tne oven, and to have them
in any season and anwhere up in the
rigorous Alaskan climate, in the heat
of the Indies, in the moisture-charged
atmosphere of the seacoast, or the mild
temperature of the Ir, terior--just as
fresh, crisp and delicate as if bought
the day they were baked ir. the famous
bakeries of the great cities.
This invention is known as the "In-er-seal
Patent Package." It is protected
by law and is made of specially pre
pared cardboard, so cut that it folds
into a box jUBt big enough to hold the
biscut for which it is designed. It is
lined with a delicate waterproof paper
that is the actual wrapper of the eon
tents, and the placing of thispaper and
the cardboard around the biscuit, in the
form of a box, without the use of paste
or nails, or metal clamps or cords is a
wonder in itself. The exterior is still
further protected with a label sheet
designating the contents, the end being
sealed with the "In-er-seal" trade mark
design now so familiar to all newspaper
This trademark design Is one that was
adopted advisedly, for It is a sealed
and inersealed package. It is so sealed
outside and inside that it would be
imoossible for moisture to enter,
though the package were exposed to a
London fog, or an April shower; im
possible for dust to get in even if a
cyclone carried it along; impossible for
odors of the mackerel barrel or the
meat block to get in, even if left out
in their odorous company; impossible
for a germ to enter, because the bis
cuits are packed at the ovenside all
the good sealed in; all the bad sealed
The "In-er-seal Patent Package" Is
controlled and used exclusively by the
National Biscuit company, the origi
nators of the famous Uneeda Biscuit
and other TTneeda products, much of
the lame of whieh resulted from the
protection of this wonderful package.
This alone is sufficient testimony of its
ability to keep good things good.

dons the Gubernatorial Race.
Indianapolis, Ind., June 7. Develop

purpose of his candidacy for governor
of Kentucky on the Republican ticket.
The results of various conferences of the
party leaders in Kentucky.together with
full correspondence, have brought about
this conclusion. This means that Gov
ernor Taylor will enter business in In
diana as executive manager for an in
surance company, with headquarters in
this city. Mr. Taylor and Charles Fin-

son until the close of this week, when

O..L Hood & Co. Victorious) in Im
portant Cases . Injunction
Against Br. J. O. Hood.
Important suits have Just been de
cided in the t'nited States circuit court
involving the right to the word Hood
or Hood's. Messrs. C. I. Hood & Co.,
of Lowell, Mass., proprietors of Hood's
SarsapariUa, began suit for infring
ment against Dr. J. C. Hood of Louis
ville, Ky., who was putting up what
he called "Dr. Hood's SarsapariUa."
After a hearing in the United States
circuit court at Louisville, Judge Evans
on April 12 granted a temporary in
junction in tavor of O. I. Hood & Co.,
and restraining J. C. Hood from using
the word Hood in any way or form on
any preparation of sa aparilla.
Messrs. C. I. Hood & Co. also began
suit against a retail druggist in Indian
apolis, Louis H. Renkeit. who was sell
ing Dr. J. C. Hood's SarsapariUa. Dr.
J. C. Hood employed counsel and made
a defense, but Judge Baker of the
United States circuit court granted an
injunction which on April 23 became
These two decrees establish the ex
clusive right of C. I. Hood & Co. to the
word "Hood's" and declce In effect that
no other person can put up a Hood's
SarsapariUa even if his name is Hood,
nor can any retail druggist sell or offer
for sale any sarsapariila bearing the
name Hood or Hood's other than that
prppared by C. I. Hood & Co.
These decisions will be gratifying to
every fair minded pei-son. No manu
facturer should object to fair competi
tion, but where an attempt is made to
steal or Infringe upon a business which
has been established by great skill,
labor and expenditure, justice cannot
be dealt out too quickly. Nor should
"substitution" be allowed, when a stan
dard nrtiele is ealled for. Therefore,
when you go to buy Hood's SarsapariUa
you should be sure to get "only

bers in the erection of a barn. As soon
as the men above noticed the child be
ing beheaded they became panic strick
