A dispatch to the Journal and Advertiser from Paris says: Closes Fowler Chase, the younr million aire of Lafayette. Ind., has disappeared from the private insane asylum near 3'aris where he had been placed recent ly by his aunt, Mrs. Duhme, of Cincin nati. The family dispute over the young man's sanity has rearisen and will (jrobably go to the courts. Detective Sutherland, of Chicago, has arrived in Paris. He was sent by the 'hase family in Lafayette. The detect ive found the boy in a private asylum at No. 145 Rue de Versailles, Bologne Sur fceine. While taking proper steps to re move the boy the latter suddenly disap peared. The keepers of the asylum said Chase fiad gone, but they did not know where. :No trace of him has been found, and there are diverse theories as to his dis appearance. Whether he has wandered ojT himself or been spirited away can only be conjectured. The Duhmea are now in America. Their side of the case as In charge of Edmund Kelly, the (American lawyer. SHOWS FATIGUE. Campaigning is Wearing on Sir. Stev enson. Baltimore, Oct 13 Adlai E. Stevenson, the Democratic candidate for the vice presidency, reached this, city shortly af ter 9 o'clock this morning over the Western Maryland and left fifteen min utes later for Wilmington, Del., where he Is booked to speak this afternoon. The trip from Hagerstown wasmadein a spe cial train which left there at 6:20 o'clock. It came through without a stop, owing to the Imperative nature of Mr. Steven Bon'3 engagements in Delaware, hence there were no speeches or demonstra tions en route. Neither was there any demonstration at union station, in this city, Mr. Stevenson practically stepping from one train to another without any one knowing except those who accom panied him, of his presence. He shows Borne signs of fatigue but on the whole is bearing the strain of active campaign ing remarkably well. He expresses ab solute confidence In Democratic success in Maryland and declined to say any thing concerning former President Cleve land's latest declaration on the currency question. ATHLETE'S FAILURE. Was Not a Success Until He Was Pot on the Right Food. Cecelius X. Hale, of 1717 Barclay St., Baltimore, lid., now quite a famous run Tier, has had some interesting experience in regard to proper feeding. His testi mony is worth the attention of any athlete, or in fact, of any person who cares for good, sturdy, powerful health. "L'p to about 18 months ago I had been in many athletic contests, without much success. I about made up my mind it was time to stop, but a physical director of the Y. M. C. A. of this city advised me to use Grape-Nuts food and IPostum Cereal Coffee as principal fact ors in my diet. "I accepted the advice and today am in possession of perfect health, and a great many medals won in different ath letic events. I can now run a race and finish in fine condition, whereas before I 6tarted on the right diet, I would find myself in a faint at the end of a race. "Formerly I had more or less nervous trouble and severe headaches. I am glad to say since using Grape-Nuta and Postum Food Coffee I have forgotten what a heaaache feels like. My heart is in perfect condition, whereas while I was using ordinary coffee it would not stand the heavy strain. This statement is absolutely true, and I do not object to your publishing it. for it may brine back health and strength to some poor being suffering from ill health, caused by the use of improper food." There is a reason for this; in the first place, ordinary coffee will shows its effects somewhere in the nervous svs tem frequently in weakening of the heart or in stomach troubles, which pre vents one from obtaining the strength and value of food. It is therefore nec essary to quit the use of this drug, and in its place use Postum Cereal Food Coffee and Grape-Xuts food. They were both invented by a food expert and are made at the famous pure food factories of the Postum Cereal Co., Ltd., at Battle Creek. Mich. This food and the food drink are both made for a definite purpose, and there are thou sands of users throughout the world that can testify, from practical experi ence, that the theory is borne out by the frkcta.

The abundance of money has not lessened and borrowers are able to obtain funds at practically their own terms. Discounts are firm. The announcement of a further ship ment of half a million in gold today from India was counteracted by Ameri can inquiries. Business transactions were small, operators being chary of taking bills at any price in the present uncertain condition of the nflferket. Though business on the stock ex change was not improved today there was generally a more hopeful view pre vailing. Consols hardened and the war loan was steady at discount. The Statist says: "An early advance in the bank rate seems unavoidable. The supply of mon ey is still superabundant, day by day loans being made as low as 1 per cent while the general rate is only 1V4 per cent. This abundance is regrettable With the rate of American exchange falling to the gold point the Bank of England has already been obliged to sell 300,000 in the United States and more is expected to go. The bank's reserve has been reduced to 21.000,000 and the crucial question is how high must mon ey be raised in London to stop the threatened outflow of gold to the United States and Germany and maintain the Bank of England's reserve on a safe level." The theme of all commentators is the probable loss of more gold New York ward. TO GO POLE HUNTING. William Ziegler Will Fit Out an Ex pedition. New York, Oct. 13. William Ziegler, a wealthy citizen of New York, an nounced today that he would purchase two vessels, fully equip and man ttyem, and send them in quest of the north pole during the summer of 1901. The expedition is to be in charge of Evelyn B. Baldwin, who was a compan ion of Lieutenant Peary in his attempts to reach the pole in 1893 and 1894, and also a member of Walter Wellman's ex pedition. It is Mr. Zeigler's intention to have one vessel remain in the Arctic region while the other returns for supplies. The expedition it is said will not be dis patched for the north earlier than the summer of 1901, and all the time between this date and that will be necessary for the preparation and outfit. Ships may be purchased, though vessels specially adapted for the work may be built. A . P. C. T. U. ADDRESS.

The meeting will be under the direction of the Young Peo ple's Good Citizenship federation. A branch of the organization will probably be organized in Topeka, as a result of her visit here. Indians Must Fay Taxes. Fort oWrth, Tex., Oct. 13. The matter of enforcing collecting tribal taxes in the Indian Territory has been placed in the hands of the Indian police, a number of whom arrived at Ardmore to day. Those who refuse to pay will be ejected. Lloyd Tevis' Brother Dead. Oakland, Cal., Oct. 13. Joshua Tevis, a brother of the late Lloyd Tevis, is dead in this city. He was a native of Kentucky and took a prominent part in the politics of that state. He was dis trict attorney of oLuisville for" several terms. In 1864 he came to California and engaged in the practice of law. Threw Herself Into a Cistern. Atchison, Kas., Oct. 13. Mrs. Kate Spangler, aged 74 years, killed herself at Muscotah, in Atchison county, Thurs day night, by throwing herself into a cistern containing efght feet of water. She lived with her daughter, Mrs. Lottie Sells, and her mind had been impaired for- several years. An exactly similar case occurred at Farmington, Atchison count, on Wednesday night Annual Session of Friends Church Lawrence, Kas., Oct 13. The twenty ninth annual session of the Friends church of Kansas and parts of Mis souri, Oklahoma and the Indian Ter ritory met in this city yesterday. It was represented by delegates from the fifteen quarterly meetings that compose the yearly meeting. "Blowhard has a big opinion of him self." "How big?" "Well, he's beginning to imagine he's annoyed by camera fiends." Puck. Democratic Candidate Reminds Him of a Fool. Does Not Answer Bourke Cock ran as Expected. John P. Irish, the noted California orator who has been stumping the coun try under the auspices of the national Gold Democratic committee, spoke at the Auditorium last evening to a crowd that tested the capacity of the Auditor ium. Every seat in the building was oc cupied and the aisles were crowded. The immense crowd which was attracted to the street by the pyrotechnic display could not by any means find places in the hall and many were turned away. The audience was sympathetic and liberal with its applause. Mr. Irish has the faculty of being an interesting talker, a good story teller and is able to hold his audience. Jackson's band was stationed on the stage and first played the "Stars and Stripes" which was followed by "Ameri ca" and other selections. As at the Cockran meeting a large number left the hall. About 8:30, Mr. Irish, escorted by Mr. W. H. Rossington, Eugene Hagan and Frank L. Peacock, who has accom panied Mr1. Irish on his Kansas trip, walked on the stage. Later in the evening Frank Grimes, accompanied by J. R. Burton, entered the Auditorium and found seats, on the stage. While in Topeka Mi. Irish was the guest of Eugene Hagan. The committee having the matter in charge advertised the meeting as one in which Mr. Cockran, who spoke in the Auditorium last Saturday, would be an swered, but those who expected to hear an answer were disappointed. Mr. Irish only mentioned Mr. Cockran in one connection. He said: "I see Mr. Bryan is much agitated over a new doctrine of imperialism he has discovered. His apostle, Bourke Cockrah, said the flag must be hauled down in the Philippines because it was JOHN P. IRISH. raised by unholy hands. In 1898 Senator Morgan, one of Mr. Bryan's most earn est supporters said: 'The flag of the United States has been raised in the Philippines. It must never be hauled down. The hand of God planted it there.' I will let Mr. Cockran and Sen ator Morgan fight it out among them selves as to what kind of hand raised the flag." The address was devoted to proving the value of the gold standard and the importance of sustaining it. Col. W. H. Rossington, the chairman of the meeting, introduced the speaker of the evening in the following language: "Fellow citizens of Topeka, ladies and gentlemen, four years ago at the conven tion held by the delegates of the Demo cratic party at Chicago the honor bright Democrats felt that the security of the country was assailed by the adoption of the Chicago platform and the nomina tion of a candidate opposed to all the old honorable traditions of the good old Democratic party. I take pleasure in in troducing to you Col. John P. Irish." Mr. Irish arose and was met with cheers which continued for some min utes. Not alt the members of the march ing clubs had entered the balcony and Mr. Irish said that he would wait until all were seated and that he would ap preciate the favor if the room could be kept as quiet as possible as he was worn and tired. With this he asked the band to occupy the intervening time. Mr. Irish began his address by saying: "Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen, the peo ple of this republic have again on hand the serious business of electing a presi dent and determining the policy of the nation for the coming four years. "The election of a president and the determination of the policy of the re public should always be a serious busi ness. It seems that this was realized four years ago and that it is given more thought now than ever before. It Is made a serious business now because of the candidacy of Mr. Bryan who four years ago and now made an assault on our government and the welfare and happiness of all our people. This year the same as four years ago we are con fronted with the same leader, who is advocating every policy that is per nicious and who is adding others that are equally as vicious. "Therefore we the honor bright Democracy of the United States stand as we did four years ago, opposed to all Bryanisms. "It is the object and aim of Mr. Bryan to destroy the gold standard and es tablish his free silver 16 to 1 idea- Mr. Bryan further made the promise when he accepted the Populist nomination in this city that if elected he would en deavor to give the greenback the power of currency. "Mr. Bryan favors legislation to abol ish the representative institution. When it was presented to the Populists for the first t'me they fought shy of the schema and would not place it in their platform, but as soon as it was presented to the Bryan aggregation at Kansas City they jumped at it from the first offer. The scheme to take the legislation out of the hands of the representatives and place it in the ballot box is in direct conflict with the ideas of our forefathers who were signers of the constitution. "Mr. Bryan stands pledeed and re pledged to destroy the gold standard. a SI TTT? N i )1 -. MiiSiWinosifM Why should he destroy the gold stand ard? He said four years ago that if he was not elected the schools would close: that prices would fall as surely as a stone thrown into the air would fall: that more factories would close, more men be idle and of course as a result there would be more crime; and that the time would come when the laboring classes would become so poverty strick en as to be too poor to buy shoes and likewise clothing. All these statements were made by the inexperienced gentle man from Nebraska four years ago when he asserted that unless elected all these things enumerated and more would come to pass. "We the honor bright Democrats in our convention declared for the gold standard and believe that the gold standard should beintrenched in the law of the republic. During the last session of the congress the gold standard was affirmed by law and is now in operation. Every position taken by the unexperi enced politician from Nebraska in oppo sition to the gold standard is false. Un der the gold standard law In the United States the public debt is refunded in government bonds with interest at 2 per cent. And these same bonds are to day at a premium of 5 per cent. "Never before since history began has any empire principality or power that ever lived on this globe enjoyed a credit so high. Why should our foundation be destroyed? Can any one look me level in the eye and say that they propose to vote for this fell destroyer? "As long as the gold standard is maintained the two partners labor and capital will go hand in hand holding the market. "The gold standard law has trans formed this nation from a debtor nation to a creditor nation. The empire of Ger many comes to this country to sell her bonds. Norway and Sweden want to do likewise and Russia says that she thinks she will place the sale of her next issue of bonds in this country. Now England comes out with the announce ment that she would like to borrow on her 3 per cent consols. "For years London has been the clear ing house of the world. When the bill of lading followed the cargo out on its journey it would start from London.and the draft would be made on a London clearing house. Now under the gold standard we are not only the creditor nation but we have transferred the clearing house of the world from Lon don to New York city. The bill of lad ing does not now follow the cargo from London and the draft be made on Lon don, but on the other hand the draft is being made on New York city. "Bryan stands pledged to do away with all this. I won't say that a man with those intents is a traitor but I will say he has a very poor idea of what is for the welfare of a country's people. The man who when he goes to the ballot box on November 6 and smites the up holder of these principles by voting against him will have done his duty as well as the man in blue who faced the powder in battling for his country's honor. "Not long ago Mr. Bryan with others sat in a balcony in New York city and watched the procession of one of the largest and most intellectual bodies of workingmen e,ver massed together in parade before. After passing the re viewing stand they went to the park, where later Mr. Bryan addressed the army of constantly employed, well dressed and well fed men. He told them that there was a conspiracy of the rich to keep them under foot, and among other things he told the men that they paid too much for their bread. "A few days later he was over in In diana talking to the farmers and he told them how they were the victims of a conspiracy; that they were downtrodden and that they should rise and cast something oft, and get a better price for their wheat. Now, how can a farmer get a higher price for his wheat if the consumers of bread do not have to pay a higher bpt lower price for it? Tell me that kind of a man is fit to be a presi dent? No. "And again a few days later in St. Louis he was talking to the mothers and fathers about the avenues left- open for the young ones. He talked to them about their being downtrodden and op pressed, and urged them to rise and shake something off. He said there was now nothing for their young ones to do; that there was no path or profession left open to them; that every door was nailed. And he went on in this strain, almost making his hearers thing it would be a blessing if they would go home and strangle their young ones. "Not long ago the president of a col lege, one of the largest in the United States, told me that the demand for great minds was much greater than the supply; that never before had the trained mind, the product of the American s& life by sEoiog U 1 rt--rEr--."--t-w.

The young man who guided me around through the buildings told me that he worked and earned the means with which he car ried himself through school. And the president, with whom I was talking later about this young man, told me that over 40 per cent, of the students went through the school in the same way. Yet Mr. Bryan makes the assertion that there is no avenue left open for the young. JJe reminds me of a fool in his pessimism. "In Kansas City he talked to the men who worked in the packing houses, and told them that it was an insult to talk to them of a full dinner pail. He as sured them that what they wanted was leisure time for intellectual develop ment. In 1S96 they had plenty time for their development of the mind. They wore not kept from it by a dullness caused by a dinner pail too full." Mr. Irish closed his rneetinsr after speaking about one hour and forty min utes, by saying: "When the polls close after this election I expect to see by the world's prreatest jury the condemna tion of Mr. Bryan and ail the pernicious isms which he stands for." This was met with prolonged cheers, after which Mr. Irish proposed three cheers for "the gold standard, the full dinner pail and the gold dollar that fills it." They were given with a will. 'Nothing is imposssible," said the law yer, grandly. "No," remarked his cli ent; "I suppose anything is feasible where there's a fee." HAMPDEN WATCHES Run all around the WORLD.
