Peruna acted like magic, and after using only three bottles I felt my usual self, and have been in excellent health ever since." - There are three things that every one should look out for during the heated season: First To keep up a good appetite and digestion. Second To have regular and refreshing sleep. Third To keep the system cleansed of all Im purities. There Is but one medicine that is able to meet all of these requirements. This medicine is known as Peruna, an old and tried prescription of an eminent practitioner of medicine. Peruna never fails to produce a good appetite and regular sleep, nor does it fail to expel all impurities from the system. A dose should be taken before each meal and at bed time. It is of great and lasting benefit to all people suffering from low spirits, nervous prostration, sleeplessness overwork, exposure to the hot sun, or those recuperating from acute disease or any other KANSAS FAIRS IN 1900.

SCALE MEN CALLED UP Before Police Court Because They Do Not Use City Weighing Slips. Four men were called Into police court Monday afternoon on 'warrants sworn out by Tax Collector Bailey who charged the men with violating the city ordi nance which requires that all owners of team scales who desire to weigh for others, shall purchase a book from the city containing 100 weighing slips, and that for every load weighed for other parties they shall issue a slip. These books cost $5. The ordinance makes it an offense to weigh without the book and makes it an additional offense to fail to issue a slip. The men who were called before the court were: Richard Hargraves, C. C. Nicholson, S. C. Swartz and Alexander & Goodfellow. Each stated that he was ignorant of violating any ordinance and, at the request of Mi. Bailey, they were let off by paying the cost of the cases, which they were very glad to do. The judge informed them that such leniency would not be shown again and warned them to never again be brought before him on that charge. Mr. Bailey says that he has had a great deal of trouble with the owners of scales, that they have only laughed at him when he told them they were not complying with the city ordinance, and that he had determined to make an ex ample of some of them. The city has scales on both sides of the river for the benefit of people who do weighing and do not own scales. The weighing by pri vate scales without using the city books means quite a loss to the city's revenue. Subscribe for the Journal.- RAILR0AD JEWS. Kansas Grain is Now .Moving to Galveston. Several Hundred Cars En Route to the Gulf. SANTA fe gains by it. Gets the Entire Haul on the Grain Shipped South. Cotton Also Moving Over Gulf Line of Santa Fe. Galveston, Tex., Aug. 28. Mr. W. C. Nixon, general superintendent of the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe railway, to day said there was a very decided in crease In movement of Texas grain toward Galveston and that Kansas grain Is now moving this way. There are now 200 cars of Kansas grain en route via the Santa Fe route for Galveston. The cotton movement is also setting In and Mr. Nixon thinks it will soon be in full blast. This makes it all the more neces sary to get quick action on grain. Grain is now coming Into Galveston at the rate of about 100 cars with pros pects that the figures will be consider ably above the century mark next week. There is approximately 2,000,000 bushels of grain in the elevators, about 1,000,000 bushels short of their capacity. SANTA FE INDEPENDENT. "Will Accept Orders For Grain Deliv eries Only as is Seen Fit. Kansas City, Aug. 28. The Santa Fe yesterday gave nomtice that hereafter it could not accept shippers' orders on grain for delivery to connecting lines ex cept as subject to the ability of the Santa Fe to effect such deliveries, and with due regard for the protection of its equipment. This virtudally makes shippers' orders for grain deliveries subject to the wishes of the Santa Fe in the matter and broadens the scope of the road's ruling" far beyond that originally made, which affected only deliveries to the Alton, Ma ple Leaf, Rock Island and Burlington, the latter of which roads was afterwards excepted from the effect of the ruling. Prom the viewpoint of the Santa Fe people this action seems to be the only sensible one to take in view of all the conditions. There is an undoubted con gestion of grain In the Kansas City yards, though none of the lines is block aded. There is also a decided shortage of equipment. These are two very im portant considerations, and a third is that the Santa Fe has not this crop year carried anything like Its fair proportion of grain tonnage east from here, al though It ia the greatest grain-originating road for the Kansas City market. ORIENT ROAD BONDS. Harper County People Decide by Vote to Issue Them. Wichlta.A ug. 28. While there is a momentary lull in the interest in the Orient road here just at present, at oth er points the interest is increasing. It having been settled that Wichita is to have the shops, Wichita has taken a long breath preliminary to future activ ity. Last week the bonds of the road car ried in Harper county. The vote was for and against Issuing the bonds, and the bonds carried in the county by about 150 to 200 votes. In Harper city there was only one vote against them. Harper county has done her duty and is to be congratulated. In Oklahoma surveyors for the road are running a line between Augusta and Arapahoe. The Mexican government on August 15 made its first grant of land to the com pany in the state of Chihuahua. ME. WELLE R. GETS A WATCH. Late Master Mechanic of Central Branch Remembered. Atchison, Aug. 28. One hundred em ployes of the Central branch shops were present at the offices of Drs. Bogle and Finney, when Dr. Finney, on their be half, presented C. W. Weller, late mas ter mechanic of the shops, with a four teen carat watch chain and Masonic emblem charm. The emblem is studded with diamonds and precious stones, and .the present is a splendid tribute to Mr. Weller, who had come up from Pittsburg, where he is now located as master mechanic of the Kansas City Southern, to arrange for the removal of his family to that place. Dr. Finney made an appropriate pre sentation speech, and Mr. Weller accept ed the gift in an equally clever talk. He Is exceedingly popular among the shop men, and it Is already announced that several will follow him to Pittsburg. In 18S7, before coming to Atchison, Mr. Weller was presented with a fine watch by the employes of the M., K. & T. shops at Parsons. TICKET H YEARS OLD. Man Tries to Ride on Santa Fe Ticket Purchased For Him When a Boy. A singular case Involving the lights of a holder of a half-fare, unlimited, ticket developed recently on the Santa Fe line. It was on an eastbound train from San Francisco, and the conductor, while col lecting tickets, was given the return portion of a half-fare, or child's excuf sion, ticket from Kansas City to San Francisco. The holder of the ticket was a young man about 22 years of age. The conductor looked at him, smiled, and asked: "You don't expect to ride on this tick et, do you?" "Why not? It is an unlimited ticket and I bought it in Kansas City eleven years ago." The conductor examined It more care fully and found that it bore the stamp of the Santa Fe office at Kansas City and was dated April 12, 18S9. It was, moreover, as the young man had said, an unlimited ticket. "I don't doubt what you say about buying it," the conductor said, "but you were a kid then and now you're a man. I can't let a man ride on a child's tick et. You must put up the other half in cash or get off the train." "But let me explain. My father put up nearly $100 for that ticket eleven years ago and your company has had the use of J50 of it for all that time without rendering any service to him or me for whom he bought it.- If I have to pay the extra half fare, am I not entitled to a credit in the shape of interest on that $50 for eleven years?" "I'm not cracking those kind of nuts," the conductor replied, smiling. "You're a man and you have got to have a man's ticket or pay full fare." "Well. I will pay the extra half fare, but I would like to have something to show for it." "All right; I'll give you a receipt." The money was paid and the receipt given, the name of the young man being Charles A. De Courcy. He said he would present a claim against the Santa Fe on his return from an eastern trip. Local passenger men.to whom the case was presented, say the conductor took the proper stand and that the youns man has no legal or ., equitable claim against the company. A. railroad ticket is a contract, and both parties to It must comply with the terms and conditions provided on it. A child's ticket calls for a child passenger, and the moment the holder ceases to comply with this condition the ticket is not good for pas sage so far as he is concerned. As rail road companies do not agree to pay in terest when redeeming unused tickets, the absurdity of a claim of this kind is readily seen. The prospects are that Mr. De Courcy will keep his receipt as an odd souvenir of an odd railroad Jour ney. truce: erecting shop. Santa Fe Is Adding It to the Plant in This City. A' truck erecting shop Is being built in this city by the Santa Fe. It is situ ated just north of the steam table be tween the coach erecting shop and the store house. It ia to be a frame building about 75x150 feet in size. There will be two tracks leading into the building. The car trucks will be put together in this building and run out over the steam table and into the coach erecting shop. The tinners will also occupy a por tion of this building. This will make vacant a great deal of space which has been needed to use in repairing coaches. TOM KING GOES EAST. Will Be in New York in Time to See Corbett-McCoy Battle. During the absence of Tom King in the east, Harry Donaldson is acting city ticket and passenger agent of the Santa Fe. Mr. King went as far as Chicago in charge of one of the G. A. R. special trains. After stopping in Chicago for a few days Mr. King will visit New York city, Atlantic City, Boston, Wash ington and Philadelphia. He will also see the Corbett-McCoy prize fight which takes place Thursday his return Mr. Donaldson will spend his vacation in Indianapolis, Ind. More Places For Firemen. Still more vacancies have been an nounced for firemen on the Santa Fe. This time they are on passenger runs 17 and 34 between Kansas City and Newton and frieght runs 65 and 6 be tween Kansas iCty and Emporia. The oldest fireman making application be fore August 31 for each of the above runs will be assigned. Work on Stillwell's Line. Guthrie, Ok., Aug. 28. Nearly a hun dred men and teams went to work yes terday near Cleo, Woods county, grading upon Stillwell's Mexico & Orient rail way, and a larger force will be put to work in the north part of Woods county next week. It seems to be the intention to push the construction of the Oklaho ma portion of the line at once. M. K. fe T. Land Grant Cases. Leavenworth, Kan., Aug. 28. Judge Hook, in the federal court, entered de crees in the suit of the government against the Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railroad company and about 1,500 land owners, to cancel the patents -granted the railroad company, dismissing the suits against all the defendants except those in Allen county. This relieves 90 p.er cent of the defendants. The Allen county cases will be passed on later in the week at Topeka. Frisco Extension Opening. St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 28 Vice President and General Manager Yoakum, of the St. Louis & San Francisco, on hia re turn from Washington, announces that the Red River division of that road will be open for general business to Hen rietta, I.

AH grocers; 16c sad sac THE FOOD DRINK fe TOWNE ON ROOSEVELT. Replies to the St. Paul Speech of the New York Governor. Duluth, Minn., Aug. 28. The largest gathering to listen to a political speech that ever assembled in Duluth occurred last evening at the Armory, when Chas. A. Towne opened the campaign in a lengthy address in which toe replied to the recent speech of Governor Roosevelt delivered at St. Paul, on the occasion of the national convention of the League of Republican Clubs, and arraigned the administration's policy in the Philip pines. The audience, which comprised persons of all shades of political belief and many scores of women, listened at tentively to the orator's remarks for more than two hours, and frequently throughout the discourse the applause was deafening. The speech, which will be used as a campaign document, is considered as Mr. Towne's greatest political effort. At its conclusion he was tendered an ovation by the multitude present. Mr. Towne will leave Tuesday or Wed nesday for Idaho and other western points to enter actively into the work of the campaign. Mr. Towne opened by expressing lack of patience with any one who believed in their "party right or wrong," or "any president right or wrong," considering the latter simply another statement of the Divine right of kings. He said the coming of Aguinaldo was at the invitation of Admiral Dewey, and that he was to be an ally of the Ameri cans, quoting from the naval records in support of his assertion. After again referring to the different situations in Cuba and the Philippines, he said: "But the statement that we never promised the Filipinos their Indepen dence conveys a false impression. Our conduct was such as to estop an honor able nation from using such a plea as a justification or as excuse for attempt ing to subjugate the islanders. "The Filipinos made no secret of their object in rebelling against the Spanish government. What they desired to do was to form a government of their own and to be absolutely independent of Spain. The representatives of the United States in the east knew this object per fectly well. The Filipinos proclaimed it to the world. "It is important to bear in mind that the Filipino republic established under the leadership of Aguinaldo was a gov ernment in fact, recognized throughout the island of Luzon and several adjoin ing islands to the south, capable of pre serving order, collecting taxes, main taining educational and complete system of public administration, raising and supporting an army which for a con siderable period numbered 30,000 men, and conducting war according to the humane principles of modern interna- Mr. Towne denied that the Filipinos were barbarians or unfit for self-government. He declared the idea of taking -forcible possession of the islands - was not decided upon until a considerable period after the battle of Manila Bay, and meanwhile the Filipinos were per mitted to hope for independence. f After describing the strained rela tions between the Americans and the Filipinos, after the capture of Manila, Mr. Towne said: "Our opponents are in the habit of re ferring to the outbreak of actual hostil ities between us and the Filipinos as though the latter were the agressors,and much is attempted to be made out of such expresisons as 'they fired on our flag." "But of course, since we had secretly formed a determination to seize the isl ands, it Is apparent that whenevr that design became manifest or we attempted to put it into effect, the Filipinos, if they were earnest when declaring their object to be independence, would resist it. The aggressor, regardless of who struck the first blow, would be, not he who stood in defense of a right, but he who by act or threat compelled the other to defend it. The development of the hostile de sign was itself an attack. As a matter of fact, however, as shown by General Otis' official report, our troops fired the first shot and the Filipinos stood on the defensive." Taking up Governor Roosevelt's speech he declared it to be "enormously disap pointing. Neither in matter nor in man ner is it worthy of its occasion. In re spect of argument the speech is, with rare exceptions, an alternation of eva sion and assertion. In spirit it is a com pound of scold and scullion. As to its facts it abounds in inaccuracies which, if accidental, are Inexplicable as coming from a man who has performed credita bly in history and biography. But the world is accustomed to inconsistencies from Mr. Roosevelt. It has long looked upon him as a predestined and Incorrigi ble eccentric. It has given up attempt ing to explain him qr to reconcile him with himself. It is quite impossible, whether it would be worth while other wise or not, to make an entirely satis factory diagnosis of a civil service re former In partnership with Thomas C. Piatt; a citizen soldier who ridicules the volunteer, a leader in battle who finds glory in being rescued from an ambush; a hero who boasts of shooting a fleeing foe In the back; a candidate who plays and poses to delegates and galleries to obtain a. nomination that he does not want; a gentleman who charges six and one-half millions of his fellow country men with lawlessness, dishonesty and cowardice; a statesman who, mounted on a hobby, rides roughly at grave ques tions in economics and politics swinging his partisan lariat and yelling like an in tellectual Comanche." BRICK ARE GOOD. Council Committee Says Topeka Ave nue Complaint is Unfounded. The complaint which was made by D. O. McCray and others to the maytfr concern ing the brick which was being used) to pave Topeka avenue from Fourteenth street to the city limits, was investigated by the streets and walks committee Mon day afternoon, and the members say they found no grounds for the complaint. The committee says the work is being well done and the brick used is as good as any that has been made in Topeka. A number of people who live on the street were worried over the complaint because they feared that the paving would be delayed and that they -would have a repetition of the celebrated Fillmore street paving trouble. Work will proceed, how ever, as rapidly as the weather will per mit. . MANAGERS ARE WARY.- Burton's New Plan to Suppress Sena torial Fight Kansas Republicans have grown weary of the contest for United States senator and many of them have expressed the opinion that this fiRht should be kppt in the background until after the election. The Burton forces have adopted a new plan, which is exemplified by the utter ances of H. F. Giessler, who has been re nominated for representative in Logan county. Giessler said this to the conven tion : "Since It has been rumored or reported that I favor a certain man for United States senator, I want to sav that I am not directly or indirectly pledged on that proposition, but since Senator Baker and J. R. Burton are the only avowed candi dates, and have fairly submitted their claims to the people before the legisla ture is chosen, I think one of them ought to be elected. In easting my vote for sen ator I shall be controlled by the wishes of a majority of the Republicans of Logan county." MILL TURNS ROUND. Batch of Jointists Are Turned Out - Into a Cruel World. There was a large crowd of Jointists and their friends at the police court yesterday at 4 o'clock, because all of the arrests made on August 21 were set for a hearing at that time. Most of the cases were dis missed, because there was no evidence against them, the arrests being the first lot made under the new order which was to arest the jointists whether or not suffi cient evidence had been secured to con vict them. The cases dismissed were against Geo. Buford, Geo. Klauer, Larry Sheehan, O. Kempton, Wood Fowler, Bob Shelbv, "Ed Ryan, C. H. Wheeler. Harry Clark. H. Dowling, Geo. Anderson and Ed Timon. The dismissals were not for every case against these men, for they have been ar rested almost every day since August 21, but it was for the case of that day only. Three of the cases were continued be cause the city thinks it has evidence against them which will convict. These were the cases against Wade Watts, F Alurphy and Billie Wiley, and they were set for August 31. The case against Ed Timon, Geo. Ander son and "Buck" Campbell came to trial, and resulted in the discharge of Timon and Anderson and the conviction of Camp bell, who was sentenced to sixty days in jail and fined $300. The evidence against Campbell was furnished by a man named William St. Marys, and it was he who swore out th warants for all three, Campbell, Anderson and Timon. St. Marys gave his evidence because he had gone into the Joint, which it appears is also a gambling room, and had lost $25 in the crap game, and this made him "sore." He could testify that he bought liquor of Campbell, but was unable to state that he ever bought anything of the others. Campbell gave bond and appealed hia case to the district court.

"I had a severe attack of bilious colic, got a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Chol era and Diarrhoea Remedy, took two doses and was entirely cured," says Rev. A. A. Power, of Emporia, Kas. My neigh mor across the street was sick for over a week, had two or three bottles of medi cine from the doctor. He used them for three or four days without relief, then called in another doctor who treated him for some days and gave him no relief, so discharged him. I went over to see him the next morning. He said his bowels were in a terrible fix; that they had been running off BO long that it was almost bloody flux. I asked him if he had tried Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar rhoea Remedy and he said, 'No.' I went home and brought him my bottle and gave him one dose; told him to 'take an other dose in fifteen or twenty minutes if he did not find relief, but he took no more and was entirely cured."
