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."

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.

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.
WHEAT HARVEST OYER.
Corn Being Laid by in Good Con
dition. The following is the report of the cli
mate and crop service of the department
of agriculture for Kansas for the week
ending June 30:
GENERAL CONDITIONS.
A warm week, the temperature on the
27th rising above 100 degrees over the
larger part of the state. Heavy rains
fell in the eastern division and in the cen
tral and southeastern counties of the
middle division, with high winds and some
hail. Only local showers occurred in the
western half of the state, .
EASTERN DIVISION.
Wheat harvest is nearly finished.
Threshing is progressing, showing a good
yield and a fine berry. Oats harvest is
progressing- In the central and southern
counties and beginning in the northern.
Corn is in tine condition and is being laid
by in all parts in clean condition. Early
apples are coming into market in most of
the counties. High winds have blown off
much fruit, injured fruit and shade-trees,
scattered shocks and stacks of wheat and
oats, blown down some corn and standing'
oats. Heavy rains have Injured the scat
tered wheat and oats, standing oats, and
alfalfa in shock and windrow. Much corn
was injured by hail in Allen. Potatoes
are rotting in the ground In some of the
southeastern counties, and are damaging
by drought in Chase and Morris.
MIDDLE! DIVISION.
"Wheat harvest is nearly finished: much
of the wheat is in stack. Threshing from
the shock is progressing, generally show
ing a good yield, though not meeting ex
pectations in Ottawa. Oats-cutting has
begun. Wind blew down grain in shocks
and stacks in many parts, and blew off
much fruit. Corn is in g:ood condition
and tasselling in the central and southern
counties, but is beginning to show effeet3
of heat and dry weather in the northern,
where bugs are attacking it. The second
crop of alfalfa is nearly all in stack in
Butler. Some hot winds this week.
WESTERN DIVISION.
Wheat harvest is progressing in nearly
all counties. Bugs have destroyed much
wheat in Decatur, and the dry weather
ha-s shortened the crop in some other
counties, but in Rawlins it is filling bet
ter than anticipated. Corn is generally
reported as doing well, though it is now
needing rain in several counties: much of
it is 1h ginning to tassel. The second crop
if alfalfa is generally doing well, but In
Wallace the grasshoppers are retarding
growth. Grass is in good condition in
most of the counties, but in Ness is near
ly dry enough to burn.

tor: "Mr. T. J. Anderson:
"Dear Sir: I have your kind favor of

We might also secure the loan of any

RAILROAD PAYS $11,800
efusal to Unload Delayed Cattle is
Expensive.
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

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.

Mike Thompson, Frank Murphy and
Larry Shehan were arrested yesterday

SOT THE MAN.
Hubbard Matthews Turns Out to Be
the Wrong Person. .
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. The
following shows the precipitation for the
month in previous years:
1887 9 57: 1888, 9.14; 1889. 3.08; 1890, 1.60;
1S91 10.50; 1892, 0.73; 1893, 5.40; 1894, 7.05;
1895. 2.79; 1S96. 3.19: 1897, 7.82; 1898, 2.65;

WILAT AILS ASTOR 1
Roasts a Prominent Englishman in
His Paper.
London, July 3. Mr. William Wal
dorf Astof has set all London talking
by publishing in his own paper, the Pall
Mall Gazette, the following paragraph:
"We desire to make known that the
presence of Captain Sir Berkeley Miln
of the Naval and Military Club Pica
dilly, at Mr. Astor's concert last Thurs
day evening, was uninvited."
As Captain Miln is one of the most
distinguished naval officers and a mem
ber of the best clubs and a former com
mander of the royal yacht OBborn, no
end of speculation has been caused by
this remarkable announcement. The
Astor concert was largely attended, and
those questioned by a representative of
the Associated Press did not notice Cap-
tain Miln. But, so far as can be learned,
nothing occurred during the entertain
ment to justify Mr. Astor's present ac
tion. Decorating McEinley Residence.
