TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL. TUESDAY EVENING, JULY 3, 1900.
HEHLTHY A -A so, reading of the remarkable cures errectea Dy tne 'jr 93 use of Peruna I decided to try it and soon found my- I r&Ji 8elf well repaid. 'I have now used Peruna for about three months fL till & n bloom of health returns to sallow cheeks and rounded gracefulness to the wasted form. Life is worth living again. Allthings have become new. J B Allen Petoskey Mich., writes:"We keep Peruna constantly on hand as an "ever ready household remedy. During last summer and autumn we had a granddaughter with us. who was quite poorly from indigestion, and also quite Sallow and thin in flesh We at once commenced administering Manalin and after the use of one bottle all the sallowness disappeared, her appetite re. turned, and when she went to her home in the bloom of perfect health, her parents were most happily surprised at her restoration and her improved condition, her cheeks glowing with the bloom of perfect health." A very interesting treatise on "Summer Catarrh" is sent free toany address by The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, O. FALSE STATEMENTS Regarding Colombian Revolution Cor rected Officially. Washington. July 3. Mr. Espinoz, consul general of Colombia, called at the State department today and had a con ference with Secretary Hay. The con sul general emphatically denies the ac curacy of the stories which reach the American press to the effect that the Insurrectionists are making headway in Colombia. He says he has dispatches of Saturday's date, declaring that Car tagena andliaranquila are in possession of the governmt-nt forces and have been all along. Mr. Espinoz said that as the rebels have been completely crushed in Sar.tander, losing many thousands In killed and wounded, the Colombian gov ernment will be able to tiivert immedi atelv to the Isthmus of Panama at least 10,000 of the soldiers of the army of 18,000 now in eastern Colombia. GREAT REJOICING Over End of the Strike Cut Short by Subsequent Developments. St. Louis, Mo., July 3. There was great rejoicing throughout the city to day when it was announced that the St. Louis Transit company and the strik ers' grievance committee had come to an agreement, and th" the strike, which had been on for just eight weeks. had been declared off. There seems to i be a hitch in the matter, however. As the day advanced it developed that mary of the strikers are not pleased with the agreement signed by their grievance committee. They assert it had no final authority to call oft the strike. They did have authority, the men declare, to come to an agreement as to the endirg of the strike along the lines proposed by President Gompera of the federation of labor, when he was in St. Louis recently. The committee's au thority extended that far and no further, they say. A meeting has been called this afternoon, when the strik ers will consider the agreement signed last night by the committee. 93.00. Kansas City and Return via the Santa Fe Route.

Is a proud and peeress record m It is a record of cure, of constant con" quest over obstinate ills of women; ills that cfeai out despair; suffering that many women think Is woman's natural heri tage; disorders and dis placements that drive out hopOm LyrJia E.

W0MEN Mary J. Kennedy, Manager of Armour & Co.'s Ex hibit at the Trans-Mississippi Exposition at Omaha, Neb., writes the following of Peruna aa a cure for that common phase of summer catarrh, known as in digestion. Miss Kennedy says: I found the continual change of diet incidental to eight years traveling completely upset my digestive system. In consulting several physicians they decided I suffered with catarrh of the stomach. 'Their prescriptions did not seem to help me any. and feel eomp'etely rejuvenated. 1 believe x am per manently cured, and do not hesitate to give unstinted praise to your great remedy, Peruna." The causes of summer catarrh are first, chronic ca tarrh; second, derangements of the stomach and liver; third, impure blood. It is very rare indeed to find any case of summer catarrh which is not the result of one or more of these causes. Such being the case anyone -who knows anything whatever about the operation of Peruna can under stand why this remedy is a permanent cure for Sum ner catarrh. It eradicates chronic catarrh from the system, invigorates the stomach and liver, cleanses the blood of all impurities, and therefore permanently cures by removing- the cause, a host of maladies peculiar to hot weather. The cause being removed the symptoms dis ippear of themselves. That "tired feeling" gives place to exuberance of youth: the dizzy head and trembling hand vanish and a. clear brain and steady nerve appear in their stead; in the place of a coated tongue, sour stomach, dys pepsia, constipation and despondency, comes a clean tongue, sweet breath, keen appetite, good digestion, remiiar bowels, and existence becomes a pleasure. The INCREASED TONNAGE. Merchant Marine of the United States Shows Remarkable Growth. Washington, July 3. The treasury bureau of navigation states that during the fiscal year 1900 the total tonnage of officially numbered vessels added to the United States merchant marine amount ed to 41 7.034 gross tons. About 3S.0O0 Ions of Hawaiian vessels and less than 1,000 tons of Porto Rican shipping were admitted to American registry. It is estimated that completed figures will show that the actual additions to the merchant fleet during 1900 have been greater than any year since 1856. The vessels built in the United States and officially numbered during the year" ag gregated 2S1.725 gross tons, a record surpassed in 1874, when 432.725 gross tons were built and documented. Of the new vessels 58 per cent are steam vessels. The most important additions of the year have been the large steel vessels built for the great lakes. The only ves sel built exclusively for the foreign trade has been the Maracaibo of 1.771 gross tons for the Venezuelan traffic, while three steamships of an aggre gate tonnage of over 8.000 tons for the Porto Rican trade are first maritime results of the annexation of that island. Full registration will probably show that the total documented tonnage of the United States on June 30, 1900, for the first time since 1865 has again reached 5.000.000 gross tons. The ton nage registered for foreign trade, how ever, will probably be slightly below S4S.000 gross tons, the figures for June, 1899. The increase of the Alaskan trade, carried on mainly by registered vessels, has checked somewhat during the year the steady decline in American tonnage registered for foreign trade.

The Missouri Pacific railroad company today sent a check for $11,800 to the cir cuit court to settle the case of J. Q. Richards against the Missouri Pacific railroad company. The case was' ap pealed from Butler county, where a de cision against the company was ob tained for that amount. The case is of great interest to stock men, and grew out of a delay in the delivery of stock by the railroad. Mr. Richards, whose home is in Texas, shipped a train of cattle from Texas to Reece, Kan. The shipment was made via Wichita and the train went east from there over the Missouri Pacific. The bridge west of Reece was burned, and the train was unable to proceed. The cattle were not unloaded, although the men in charge of them asked the company to do so, stating1 that they would take charge of them, provided the company would be responsible for the damage in unloading. This the com pany refused to do, and the cattle were kept in the cars over forty hours twelve hours longer than the limit speci fied by law. A number of the cattle died and suit was brought for Jlo.ooo. Mr. Richards secured judgment in the lower court for $11,806, and the company appealed .the case, which they now de sire to settle without further litigation. Harry Bone and S. C. Cowan were the attorneys for Mr. Richards, while Colonel Richards of Fort Scott handled the case for the company. DRIVEN TO DEATH. Horse Thief Kills One of a Team and Abandons the Other. A telejrram was received at police headquarters yesterday from Paxico, asking that a lookout be kept for a sorrel team, one horse blazed face", and a center spring top buggy. The outfit had been hired from a livery stable there and had iot been returned. Yes terday Sergeant Betts heard of a simi lar rig and went out to the end of Grand avenue, where it had been reported. He found a buggy and a sortel mare in charge of a colored man named James Clark, who said that a man driving the rig had told him to take cai'e of it until he returned. He said the horse had died and the man was unable to go farther. Sergeant Betts was obliged to hunt for the dead horse, and found that he had a blazed face. He then brought the out fit in and notified the man in Paxico, who came this afternoon to claim his prop erty. The horse had been driven to death. Nothing has been heard of the man who drove the rig.

It was discovered today, when the city marshal from Tecumseh. O. 1 ,. arrived, that Hubbard Matthews, the nero who had been arrested under the supposition that he was the man who had killed two men in Oklahoma, was not the rarty wanted. In fact, he did not look in the least like the murderer, for he is colored, while the Oklahoma killer is a white man. Marshal Lawson was out of humor over his fruitless trip, but said that it was due to a misunderstanding in the correspondence. The man he wants is Bob Christian, a member of the notori ous Christian family of Oklahoma. Christian has killed several officers, and his brother. Bill, has an equally bad record. Neither nor the officers here had mentioned the color of the man in their corresponder e. Had they done so the arrest would not have been made and the marshal would have been saved a useless trip. Officers Gilmore and Hendricks were positive they had the right man, and circumstances seemed to give color to their theory. HOT FOURTH OF JULY. "Weather Bureau Predictions The Kecord Por June. Observer Jennings makes the an nouncement officially today that Wednesday will be the glorious Fourth of July and be hot enough to suit the most fastidious Hottentot. The forecast is "Fair tonight and Wednesday. Continued high tempera ture." It is hoped that the usual bom bardment will bring a cooling shower but the youngsters of all ages who shoot fire crackers and watch the balloons go up hope it will not rain. Tradition has it. that there will be rain. Today would be unbearably hot but for the sixteen-mile wind blowing from the southwest and bringing up perhaps a little coolness from the Gulf or the salt marshes of Hutchinson. The minimum temperature today was 76, and the tem perature at 11 o'clock was 87. Monday the mimimum was 76 and the maximum 90. The report for June shows the mean temperature to be 74, while the mean temperature for the month in the fol lowing vears was as follows: 1SS7, 75: 1SS8. 72; 1889, 69; 1890, 76: 1S91, 71- 1892, 75: 1893, 73; 1894, 75; 1895, 73: 1896, 73; 1S97, 75; 1S98, 76; 1.899, 74; 1900, 74. The highest temperature was 101, on the 27th. and the lowest 64, on the 3d. The greatest 'daily range was 35. The total precipitation was 2.54 inches.
