TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL WEDNESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 17, 1900.
WONDERFUL That is the Word Used by Col. Bryan To Express llis Estimate of the Great Demonstration In Honor of His Visit to New York City. FOUR BIG MEETINGS. Cheering Thousands Greet Him at Every Point. Principal Address Made at Madi son Square Garden. New York, Oct. 17. William J. Bryan arrived In this city at 2:55 o'clock yes terday. His reception was an emphatic ovation. As the train steamed into the annex of the Grand Central station that part of the immense building was thronged with a multitude. Mr. Bryan was driven to the Hoffman house in an open carriage in which he at next to Richard Croker. and with uncovered head bowed and smiled to the thousands who cheered him. About 2 o'clock Captain Price at the Grand Central station began to take ac tive measures to open a passage way for the Tammany hall reception com mittee to the station. At 2:35 o'clock a loud cheer went up and the open carriage containing the Tammany hall reception committee rode to the annex. William R. Hearst led the way, followed by Richard Croker, O. H. P. Belmont, president of the borough, James J. Coogan, James Shevlin, Lewis Nixon, Lawrence Delmour and about a dozen others. Three cheers for Croker were given. As the time approached for the ar rival of the train the reception commit tee started to move further and further along- the track. At this point the po lice lines were made ineffectual by a regular football rush. While the re ception committee was waiting, every possible inch of space on stairs, at win dows, platforms and on the big iron bridges crossing the station was occu pied. The narrow passageway along the tracks was a mass of people when the engine of the Bryan train blew its warning whistle. Then came the mad scramble to reach the rear car of the train in which Mr. Bryan was supposed to be. Mr. Croker, Mr. Hearst and the other members of the reception commit tee tried, to walk in a dignified manner toward the train to greet the presiden tial candidate, but the crowd was too great. They were pushed and shoved and hustled along until they had almost to break into a run before they could Fwing themselves on to the rear plat form and give Colonel Bryan greeting. Meanwhile the crowd had worked it self up to what it considered a proper degree of enthusiasm. It cheered and hallooed as Mr. Bryan stepped out on the platform. Then escorted by Richard Croker and the committee, he began the Journey toward the street. A number of people grasped Mr. Bryan's hands. The candidate smiled good naturediy through !t all. in spite of the fact that both he and Mr. Croker were being rather rough ly jostled about. As he entered the open carriage and took his seat. Mr. Bryan took off his hat and smiled and bowed on every side. Richard Croker sat next to him, while Mr. Hearst and Mr. Shev lin occupied the other two seats in the carriage. Mr. Bryan reached the Hoffman house at 3:20 p. m. All the way down Fifth avenue he was cheered by the crowds that lined the thoroughfare. Mr. Bryan at once went to his rooms. A few min utes later he received a delegation from St. Matthew's Lutheran church, North Fifth street, Brooklyn. Rev. Augustus Sinners, the pastor, presented him with a gold-headeu cane, which had been won by Mr. Bryan in receiving the largest number of votes at a fair held by the church. He made a speech of thanks, and then retired to rest before the ban quet. For hours before the time set for the WHAT PEOPLE SAY Is Not What Makes Valuable. Remedy Testimonials are good things and we are always glad to get them, but they don't make our remedy any better. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are good because they do good because they cure. Testimonials simply prove that the tablets have helped other people, but it's yourself you are most interested in, and w hether they will cure you is the ques tion. It is very easy to find out try them. A full package costs but fifty cents at your druggist's. They are worth that if they only help you a little bit. The chance is worth taking at the price. We put it on that basis because you, don't know about the tablets. If you knew as much about them as we do you would have complete confidence; this advertising would be unnecessary. We have seen them cure the worst cases of stomach trouble. Cases of long standing and obstinancy. cases that other medi cines and even high priced doctors had failed to subdue. Here are some testimonials. If you care to read them we have thousands of them: Rev. J. R. Hoag, of Wymore, Ne braska, writes: For six years I have been troubled with dyspepsia. Last fall 1 became very much alarmed at some symptoms of heart trouble and came to believe there was a sympathetic relation between the two diseases, or rather, that the stomach trouble was the cause of the heart disturbance. I hit upon Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets for a remedy and In vested a dollar and a half for three boxes which lasted me three months and I can eat any kind of food I want and have a good vigorous appetite. Although I am eeventy-seven years old, I now feel per fectly well and without being requested by anyone I make this statement as a compliment to the ,virtues of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. Mrs. Lydia Bartram, of Assyria Mich., writes: I have suffered from stomach trouble for ten years and five different doctors gave me only tem porary relief. A Mr. E. R. Page advised me to try Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and four boxes did me more permanent ben efit than, sill the doctors' medicines that I have ever taken. We honestly believe Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are the best medicine ever made for the cure of stomach troubles. Don't mistake our meaning. We don't claim them to cure anything but dys pesia and stomachic disorders. Just the one thing is the cause the starting point of nearly all the sickness in the world. Use Stuart's Tablets regular)-". Keep your stomach, right, and you can never ba aick. opening of the doors, 6:30, Madison Square Garden, where Mr. Bryan and the head of the state Democratic ticket, John B. Stanchfield, spoke, was besieged by crowds. GRAND RTTSH FOR SEATS. At 5:30 o'clock to the minute the sound of exploding bombs outside the garden announced the opening of the doors. In stantlv there was a erreat rush by the people from the Madison avenue hallway and from the Xwenty-sixtn street en trance, which accoraing to police ar rangements were to be kept clear1 for ticket holders. In the first rush were a few women who got near tne speaKer stand. In less than ten minutes every seat on the floor was taken and the crowd, which had begun to pour in from all sides, attacked the galleries. Five minutes later saw the balcony and a n.irt of the galleries black witn people. The rush was then over, but there came a steady stream through the principal doors and all empty eeata were soon filled. The crowd did not appear at first to be demonstrative. When the lignts were all turned on there came a brief cheer. The big semi-circular electrical display over the speaker's stand bore the por traits of the two Democratic candidates, the Democratic emblem and the Demo cratic watchword. credited to Mr. Croker, "We wish to remain free people," in great letters of light. Then the band struck up a national air and as the peo ple recognized "Yankee Doodle" they got up in their seats with uncovered neaas, and as thev waved thousands of small American flags, shouted out the words of the song. The arrival of prominent Tammany men before the opening of the meeting brought out the first strong applause of the evening. As 7 o'clock approached the hour which Mr. Bryan was expected to arrive the crowd began to warm up. The garden was jammed. The police kept the aisles fairly well cleared, and back of the gallery seats there was not an inch of available space. Mr. Bryan entered the garden at 7:15 o'clock. As the face of Mr. Croker, be hind which appeared Mr. Bryan's, was seen the crowd burst forth in one great prolonged yell. Every one stood tip toe on his seat and the garden was a sea of waving flags. As Mr. Bryan, escorted by Mr. Croker, mounted the speaker's stand, the cheering was continuous. Just behind the two as they mounted the platform. Mayor Van Wyck escorted Edward M. Shepard, who acted as chairman of the meeting. The cheering continued, now dying down, now being renewed with increased vigor. It con tinued for five minutes, - not abating when . Mr. Bryan, rose to his feet ana raised his hands. Mr. Croker pulled him back into his seat. The cheering went on. Mr. Croker rose, hesitated a moment then raised his hand for silence. Instead of ceasing tne crowd broke forth louder than ever. Do what he could Mr. Croker could not silence the crowd. After nearly fifteen minutes of cheering the applause began to decrease. Mingled cheers and hisses. the latter for silence, lasted a minute longer. A call for three c.heer3 for "Our next president," brought out a final cheer, but an effort to repeat it w drowned in cries of "Put him out." When quiet was restored Mr. croKer rose, took Mr. Shepard by the hand and introduced him to the audience as chair man of the meeting. Before Mr. Shepard could get into the subject of "imperial ism," to which most of his address was devoted, the crowd got so impatient to hear Mr. Bryan that Mr. Shepard couia nrvt nrnopcil TTe suddenly stopped and introduced President Guggenheimer, of the council, who offered the tormai reso lutions of the evening. The resolutions were cheered, though they could not be heard for the shouts for Brvan. and Mr. Shepard at once in troduced the latter in short sentences. MR BRYAN'S ADDRESS. MrRrvan stepped to the railing above the stand as the throng broke out m fresh cheers. Mr. Bryan began .by re ferring to the vast audience before him and said that it indicated an interest in the campaign which must be gratify ing to all who realized the importance of the questions involved, jne ueaai that he was not vain enough to accept the enthusiasm manifested as a person al tribute to himself, because, he said, the individual counts for nothing ex cept that he may be the instrument used by the people to carry out their own will." He immediately entered upon a defense Of the Democratic cause and said: . "To say that the people gathered here who support our cause are the enemies of honest wealth is a slander which could not be uttered "without the one who uttered it knew it to be false. We are not opposed to that wealth, which comes as the reward of honest toil and is enjoyed by those who give to society something in return for that which so ciety throws upon them. The Democrat ic party today is not only not the enemy of honest wealth, but the Democratic party of today is the best friend of that wealth that represents ability of muscle or of mind employed in its accumula tion." Mr. Bryan went on to say that the party draws the line between honest wealth and predatory wealth, "between that wealth which is a just compensa tion for services rendered and that wealth which simply measures the ad vantages which some citizen has taken over many citizens." He declared that no honest industry, no honest occupation, no honest man need fear the success of the Democratic party. The Democratic party, he said, "showed its honesty by stating what it believed and telling the people what it will do." He asked for a comparison of the Democratic platform with the Republi can party platform, and expressed con fidence that any honest man making such comparison must be convinced of the sincerity of the Democratic declara tion and the hypocrisy of the Republi can platform. Taking up the Republican declaration of principles Mr. Bryan said that the party is not prepared today to make a fight on a question before the country. "And," he continued, "if you want proof let me remind you that the Republican party today .instead of presenting any great principle and defending it, is pre senting an appeal to every class of peo ple supposed to be approachable in any directions. "He then, went on to enumer ate the various classes to which he said the Republicans were making specious appeals and he included in the list th? farmer, the laborer, etc. "It gives the laborer," he said, "the assurance he will have a full dinner pail, and then it as sures him that there will be a large army to make him satisfied with his full din ner pail." DISCTjSSES PROSPERITY. He declared that the prosperity of which the Republican party boasts is a different thing in different localities. In the east, he said, they tell vou how pros perous the farmer of the west is. and In the west you hear of the high wages and general employment of the laboring man throughout the east. In this connection Mr. Bryan related the report of his own prosperity as a farmer and proceeded to show that the report was a gross exaegeratien. "It." he said, "I am a sample of what is go ing on the farm I have some idea of what is taking place there." Referring further to the Republican claim of prosperity. Mr. Brvan said he was willing to admit that the army con tractors and the trust magnates might be prosperous. "A man who gets Foecial privileges at the hands of the government can prosper under Republican admi-is ra tion," he said, "but I deny that the jvealtn producers of this country enjoy their share of the government's ' pro auctions." At this point there were cries of "Han na, Manna." Mr. Bryan merely responded I by asking his audience not to trifle with a ETeat namt He referred to the position of Governor Roosevelt and Senator Hanna on the sub ject of trusts, and the reference in both msia-nces was met with groans and hisses. "Mr. Hanna says there are no trusts," Mr. Bryan went on. "Are you going to send a man out to hunt the trusts who Knows wnere every trust treasurer is, bu says there are nn tmsoia?" In response to the last interrogation a voice from the audience responded: "We will send you." , Mr- Bryan again quoted from President ivicciimey s inaugural address on the sub ject of trusts and charter! that the Trei. dent had neither enforced the existing an- t.-iiuoi. laws nor recommenaea new or.ei. His attorney eeneral. he said, rtrnws h; salary and permits the trusts to ero and oppress the people. Mr. Bryan referred to the ice trust, declaring that apparently this was the only trust of which the Re publicans had any knowledge. "If a Re publican tells you," he said, "that the ice trust is hurting the people, you tell them that you have so much confidence in the Republican governor that you know he wouid not db out west making speeches if the people were suffering from the ice This remark was received with (hpra Mr. Bryan expressed the conviction that we are approacning "a period of industrial despotism, when a few men will control each great branch of industry, when every person who buys finished products will buy at a trust price, when every person who furnishes raw material will furnish it at a trust price and when every man who works for wages will work for the wages nxea oy a trust." Such a Condition as this mennf be atr1 serfdom for the. people, for a government of the people, by the people and for the people was impossible under the reign of the trusts. Mr. Bryan said that he was not satisfied to prevent extortion, but that he would make it impossible for a private monopoly to exist in the United Stsites. The decla ration was met with cheers and cries of gooo. Mr. Bryan declared that the Republi cans desired the standing armv for both ioirieu unu uumestic reasons. i Dei.eve, he said. reDeatine- his nreviniis ntipranpc "that one of the reasons why they want a large army is to build a fort in everv large citv and use the. armv tn wonnrea by force that discontent that oughfto be cured by legislation. If the increase of tne army was intended to maintain an im perial policy, there could be no justifica tion for it on that ground, because the people had never voted for an imperial policy." He asserted that this policy of imperial ism was the creation of the Republican VAiiy iinu aauea: "Thev want the snt They want to hear the they want the glory of crowning heroes returning home, their thanks and their piauuits. ine ftepuDiicans want the drum to beat so that it can be heard around the world. We want rhA lip-ht nf Unortxr to shine so brightly here that It will be seen around the world and everywhere in- ssiiK nit; ptfupie. In substantiation nf hts aacerttn tiiot the Democrats were not raising a scare crow, Colonel Bryan referred to the Porto Rican legislation of the last session of congress, tie declared tfiat this legisla tion was based upon Euronean ideas nnii not upon American principles. According iw mat. uucument, ne sain, a president is bigger than the constitution, and then Mr. Bryan exclaimed: "Beware, my friends, of a president when he becomes greater than the constitution. There is no place where you can draw the line; it will become all president and no consti tution." Quoting the Republican platform as to wie disposition to be made of the .Fili pinos, ne said: "Who is to decide their wplfam? VCc. Who is to decide their duty? We. What has the Filipino to do with it? Nothing . an. Aiiey uo not uare oereno tnat pianK and I am afraid before this campaign Is over that they will try to prove that it was not written by the Republ can con vention at all. but that it was put in there by someone who had no authoritv." He said his reason for expressing this ommun was tne rant ynnr hp ratifica tion of the peace treaty had been placed at his door. He then took up the ques tion of his connection with the ratifica tion of the treaty and said he had voted for It because, he (Mr. Ervant hsui fav. ored it and continued: "But I can prove by Senator Wellington, a Republican, that without his vote it would not nave Deen ratified; that he Would not have voted for it hnt fnr th fact that the president promised him that the Philippine islands would not be held permanently." In closing, he said, that instead of de siring a nation ever ready to resort to force, he wanted it to be a peacemaker uiong nations. "Then." he said, "we can claim the -re ward promised to the rearemakpr-! atirl say blessed are the peacemakers, for they oiicLii ue cuiieu tne ennoren ot tioa. Mr. Bryan concluded his speech at 9 o'clock precisely, having spoken one hour and fifty-one minutes. The crowd rose and cheered as he left the olatfnrm in company with Mr. Croker, shaking hands y..-s nt; lui L. A number started to sro out as he heiran speaking, and he was interrupted as Mr. Stevenson had been. William F.

THREE OTHER MEETINGS. Thousands Greet Mr. Bryan at Each. Assemblage Point. New York. Oct. 17. The crowd that surged about the open air stand at Madi son avenue and Twenty-fourth street, crushing the weak and almost smother ing those who were so tightlv packed in that the air, whick reeked with the fumes of Greek fire, could not reach theni, may have numbered 20.000, and there was not one in the crowd who cared to hear any one else but Mr. Bryan. It was shortly after 9 o'clock when the cavalcade head ing the Bryan party rode down Madison avenn; to the stand. The carriages could not drive within fifty feet of it and Mr. Bryan, Mr. Croker, Mr. Hearst and James tonevnn, wno were in tne carriages, walked to the stand. The ovation to the candidate was deafeningly loud and pro longed. After shaking hands with Mr. Kellar and those on the stand who could stretch their hands to him Mr. Bryan stood facing the crowd in front of the stand. He uncovered his head, but the bombs were exploding in the air over head and the fire from one almost struck him. Mr. Bryan drew away to avoid it. The band was still playing "Hail to the Chief," when Mr. Bryan outstretched his hand to the audience to command quiet. He said. "Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: I have been talking in doors until I am warm and I am afraid to expose myself in the open air. You can read in the morning papers what I have said, but I have said enough and you have read enough to know the issues and mv onin- ion in regard to them." ine minute Mr. ttryan stopped speaking Mr. Croker took his arm and led him to the rear of the stand to see the crowd as sembled there. He waved his hat to mem and Air. croKer asked him: Did you ever see anything like it?" "Wonderful, wondertul." Mr. Rrran said. Then the party after hand shaking all around left the stand and trot into the carriages. The trip to Tammany hall was made through streets lined with cheering thousands. Mr. Bryan and his party ar rived at 9:25. As soon as he was able to speak he said: 'I am here for a moment to eXDress mv appreciation of the work that is being done in this campaign bv this great Tam many organization. I heard of Tammany hall before Tammany hall ever heard of me. I came here several years ago on the Fourth of Julv. and I was nimj t learn that this society made it a rule to celebrate the anniversary of the nation's Ull Lll. "Could I better describe the change that has taken place in the Republican party than to tell vou that A nartv mniri h. so brutalized by the policy cf imperialism as to be unconcerned at the death of two sister republics." At 10 o cock Mr. Bryan arrived at Cooper Union.

Th n TrlVi,, Travel, Warner, chairman of the meeting, lntro- uuieu .ur. oryu, wno spoke in part as foil ws: "Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: RAILROAD NEWS. Passenger Rate War is On and No End In Sight. Northwestern Cuts Are General Now and It Looks Like CALIFORNIA IS NEXT. Transcontinental Association Has a Big Job on Its Hands To Bring Roads Into Line and Stop Slashing. Western railroads are well advanced into a passenger traffic war that has been brewing for some time and un dergoing a gradual progression as the days went by. Executive officials worked on the problem in Chicago for a long time and finally evolved the Transconti nental Passenger association, which i3 expected to repair the mischief, but just how that is going to be done is another question. Cheap rate excursions have been at the bottom of the -whole business, and the "settlers' rates" of the Great North ern and Northern Pacific get the lion's share of the blame. These are said to have been making more or less trouble for a year or more. From Chicago and St. Paul the demoralization in rates have worked their way down to the Missouri river gateway, and nobody knows where the cutting is going to stop. The Burlington opened up the Mis souri river gateway with competitive rates, and all Kansas City lines having northwestern connections promptly met the reductions. The Union Pacific, Mis souri Pacific and Rock Island roads, from their respective headquarters, have received instructions authorizing the sale of tickets at the cut rate of $23 one way to Montana points and $40 for round trip; $28 one way and $45 round trip to Portland and Puget Sound points. This means that Topeka and interme diate points to the northwest have the advantage of the low rates also. One new and significant point In the meeting of the rate is contained in the announcement of General Passenger Agent Sebastian of the Rock Island This road has gone a stride further, and authorizes the sale of cheap tickets on every Tuesday from February 12 to April 30, 1901, in addition to the time specified by the other roads, which is until November 27. It will be in order for the other roads to meet this extension in time in the sales of excursion tickets, which may effect all classes of travel from the Mis souri river gateway to the northwest, unless some adjustment is made. The outlook is that the next class of business at which the slashers will take a cut is the California travel. Though there is the strong opposition of the Santa Fe to such a move, it would seem to follow as the inevitable consequence of what has gone before. The steps have all been gradual, and California is the next log ically and geograprically. On this point a passenger official of one of the inter ested roads in Topeka said: "I know it is strongly opposed, but things are working for a low rate into California, it seems to me. By going by way of Portland, now, with this cheap rate, the round trip can be made for $69, when the regular fare is $90. These previous cuts have followed one another by the various roads, being met on the defensive to save their business. It started with the northern lines. They stay out of the Transcontinental Asso ciation, and for protection the associa tion roads have to meet their cuts, it has extended so far now as to affect all the western territory; that is why I think that California business will be brought into the mess. Was the Trans continental association formed to stop this demoralization of rates? I suppose so; and Mr. Charlton has a big job on his hands, I'll agree." AN ANOMALY IN TRAFFIC Competitors Between Common Points Under Different Jurisdictions. The Kansas City Southern railroad has secured an injunction in the federal courts restraining the railroad commis sion of Arkansas from interfering witn the railroad rates on business going from a point in Arkansas to another point in the same state, but which passes out side of the boundary of the state en route. It will be remembered that for a considerable distance this road runs in the Indian Territory just west of the western boundary of Arkansas, leaving the state about 2o miles south or tne northern boundary and re-entering it about 75 miles north of the southern boundary. It is claimed by the railroad that because of this condition the state railroad commission has no authority to interfere even on business which has both its origin and destination within the state, but which passes out of the state in transit. It will be interesting to watch the decision in this case. A similar condition is presented in New York state.where some of the roads operating between Buffalo and New York go outside of the state while others remain wholly within its borders. If the contention of the Kansas City Southern shall be sustained an anomaly will be presented of two roads running between the same points and competing directly for the same business, subject to differ ent legislative regulation, the one being w-ithin the jurisdiction of the state auth orities and the other of the interstate. says the Railway Review. As a matter of fact,- interstate and intrastate busi ness are so related as to make it prac tically impossible to regulate one with out interfering with the other. Given, for illustration., the power to the Mis souri railroad commission to make rates and it would -absolutely control the rates throughout the entire western This is the fourth meeting for tonight that I have spoken at. It concludes the ratification held under the auspices of the Democratic party of this city and coun'y and I am prepared to say great is Tam many and Croker is its prophet. I re joice that I have lived in the land where the people can choose a man for their leader and make of him their servant, and when they do that he becomes the great est man in the world. Yet we can never forget that he is their servant, acting for them as their representative. He is the in strument bv which they accomDlish their sovereign will." Mr. Brvan then branched off on to the subject of "imperialism," and went into it tnorougniy. He wound up by saying: "We have no money with which to buy votes, no trust magnates to intimid tie. We leave the result to you and appeal to the conscience of the oeonle. Tf Rxvrv citizen will vote as he should I have no doubt as to the result. The majority in this city and state and nation will be so large as to demonstrate the fact that no money can corrupt, no force can defeat tne peoples will, wnicn will restore thi government to the foundations laid by the fathers.

Intended to Supplant Objectionable Doubleheaders It is Said. Four mammoth Mogul engines, from the Baldwin works at Pittsburg, Pa., passed through Ottawa the other day over the Santa Fe, destined for the Port Arthur route. They are of the "double compound" type, having both high and low pressure, and are known as 12 wheelers. Their weight, as they stand is 115 tons each; equipped for work 140 tons. They cost $15,600 each. These big engines, which are being supplied rapidly to the trunk lines, are intended to supplant the "double head ers" that are so objectionable. To per mit of their use heavier rails are needed, and it is necessary to move platforms back from the track, to strengthen the bridges, etc. On account of their weight it was necessary to bring them out of Chicago and round this way on the San ta Fe. UNCLE SAM'S FREE FARMS. Santa Fe Preparing Information For Oklahoma Settlers. Uncle Sam expects to give away more of his free farms in Oklahoma next spring, the only expense to the lucky oc cupant being land-office fees and the nominal payment of a dollar and a quar ter an acre If the new lands prove as productive as the older portions of Oklahoma, they will be a bonanza. The world has not yet forgotten the marvelous crops of wheat and cotton raised in Oklahoma proper the last three seasons. The Indians In the Kiowa-Comanche-Apache reservation, in the southwestern part of the Territory, ere now taking their allotments. When President Mc Kinley says the word next spring there will be a chance for the homeless to get a home for almost nothing. It is estimated that the area available for settlement will cut up into 10,000 farm3 of 160 acres each. While some of this land is only fit for grazing, the bulk of it is available for the plow. The scenery is diversified by several low mountain ranges. The climate is agree able in summer, owing to altitude, and genial in winter, owing to southerly lo cation. The Santa Fe route passenger depart ment will issue a pamphlet soon explain ing how claims may be procured. Mean while, good land can be bought at rea sonable prices in eastern Oklahoma, SANTA FE LOCALS. Extensive repairs to the passenger depot roof are being made by tinsmiths. Ed Stiller, of the paint shop, and Alonzo Furz, of the east erecting shop, have resigned. Eight composite cars.or buffet smoking cars, are being prepared for service on the California Limited in the Sixth street shops with electric axle lighe fit tings and the like. The cars contain a barber shop and baggage compartment. They are of the No. 1,500 series, and re joice in Spanish names, as follows: San Pablo, San Juan, San Jose, San Gabriel, San Diego, San Bernardino, San Luis and San Felipe FROM EMPORIA. The new double action steam pump to be ,-put in the round house has arrived and will be put in in a few days. The old one is worn out and it will be sent to Topeka. The stock business is very heavy at present. Forty cars of cattle were un loaded at the yards Sunday night and Monday morning. The larger part goes to Kansas City and the rest to St. Joe and Chicago. A number of cattle are being bought and shipped west also. The cut-off local was annulled Sunday and failed to appear for departure at her regular time. The switchmen are selling tickets for their ball to be given Thanksgiving night. Over 100 have been sold already. Fifty-five of them were sold this morn ing. The boys are joshing Jeff Eastin about that nose he has been wearing the past few days. Chief Surgeon Kaster, Engineer James Thomas and Conductor Dad Griffith spent Sunday afternoon in the city. These gentlemen are the aboard that looks after the A. T. & S. F. hospital association, and are going over the road on an inspecting tour. FROM NEWTON. Bert Hackney, recently of Arkansas City, has been appointed inspector in charge of the yards at Strong City. Engineer John Treadway has again resumed work, having recovered from his recent illness. E. S. Mudge departed for a week s vis it among the hills and valleys in the vi cinity of Las Vegas, where his brother Fred is now stationed as assistant en gineer. He will also go to El Paso be fore his return. Joe Shuck resumed work again for the first since his return from the east. He has taken the position of assistant yard master which just suits Joe. He handles the work in a manner that reflects great credit on his executive ability. It is said that Tom Peters is a slave at the shrine of Terpsichore, so much so that he failed to show up for work the day after a recent dance, and since that time has been good naturediy entertain ing his many friends by being a recipi ent for the butt end of their jokes. W. H. Kennedy asked for a few days' leave of absence from his work in the repair yards, which was granted. Mr. Kennedy will take the stump for the fu sion forces in Harvey county, perhaps, and if he does, the Republicans had bet ter throw up the sponge. Adrian Snyder, one of the switchmen employed in the Newton yards, mashed a finger quite badly in a switch Satur day and is consequently disqualified for duty for a few days. It is said that Lngineer Mike Norton and Fireman Will Blatchley have been assigned to a preferred run deadhead ing between Newton and Dodge City. and returning with a drag. E. J. Ward, division superintendent of the Missouri Pacific was in the city to day, checking up the agent, T. W. Ran dall. It is needless to say that he found everything as it shoud be. Chris Haman departed for Kansas City to attend a meeting of the Select Knights. He is a delegate from the lodge in this city. Conductor Frank Burson has aeain resumed work at Great Bend and Billie Killie who has been on his run for sev eral days has returned to Newton. Machinist Donegan resigned his nosl- tlon in the back shop Saturday and will look for a job in the great west. TABLE AND KITCHEN.

The body is constantly undergoing tis sue changes; while water has the power to increase tne cnanges. as it Is a carrier of food Into and through the system. The crisp, light particles set lightly on baby's little stomach, which ti learning its primary lessons in activity. It's time to change baby's food to something more substantial than "baby foods."

Three cents for postage will brinir you a sample and Booklets. Battle Creek Sanitarium multiplying, in this manner, the waste products; at the same time it Is the vehicle for the removal of these same products from the blood, and gives rise to increase of appetite, which, ia turn, will provide fresh nutriment. AS A DIURETIC. A certain regular amount of pure wa ter must be taken into the body each day in order to remove useless matter, or it will soon obstruct the free working order of the system. Natural laws can not be disregarded without producing disease in some form. "That tired feel ing," so often experienced on first aris ing in the morning, might in almost ev ery case be prevented by drinking, slow ly, a glass of Tater, either hot or cold, just before retiring. This removes the large secretions of waste products that cause this feeling of weakness and lassi tude. OTHER USES. Besides carrying off poisonous matter from the system, the human body, when in health, must maintain the proper weight in water which should form two thirds of the whole body. It enters into every part, filling out every tissue; giv ing the natural, healthful roundness to the muscles, the brightness to the eyes and clearness and alertness to the brain. Water also regulates the temperature of the body by perspiration. The first great essential is that wa ter must be pure, free from odor or unpleasant taste when used for cook ing. DAILY AMOUNT REQUIRED. The quantity of water required dally must be regulated to a great extent by the loss of this fluid through natural channels, the lungs, skin and kidneys. The exercise performed by the body and temperature and the humidity of the surrounding atmosphere. The class of foods consumed also pov ern the quantity of water necessary. The quantity and dryness of the solid foods must determine how much liquid is needed to keep the system up to the nor mal standardd of health. It is estimated that the body in health requires from three to five pints of water daily, or some beverage that is almost entirely composed of water. ALL FOODS CONTAIN WATER. Water enters into combination with all foods, and in the fruits and green and succulent vegetables we obtain a consid erable amount.but not more than enough for the perfect digestion of the solid substances they are combined with, as both vegetable and fruit contain cellu lose tissue and other matter not readily digested and of little food value, and harmful to the system if not removed by this natural agent. A large percent age is taken into the body in various foods and especially In combination w ith our beverages; but pure, uncooked wa ter has very important solvent properties that are of great help in the digestion of our foods, and one should be careful, therefore, to supply the demand with an adequate amount. A healthy organism will Indicate its needs by thirst that is immediately sat isfied by a cooling, refreshing drink of pure water. If fountains of pure drink ing water were as numerous and attrac tive as are the myriad saloons in our cities, the latter might not be so general ly patronized. Thirst is inexorable, and the thirsty man or woman who would hail with delight a sparkling glass of nature's own beverage must exercise considerable of their spirit of martyr dom or resort to the near-by saloon or soda fountain. All for the want of little things such as these, how many battles may be fought and lost. MILK. This drink is not a beverage In any sense. While it may have certain re freshing qualities as a drink, it is a solid food and purely nourishing, con taining only sufficient amount of water for its own perfect digestion, and which can not be reckoned on for any other purpose in the system. When milk is freely partaken of care must be exer cised that the amount of other solid foods be proportionately lessened, or the system will be overloaded. COCOA AND CHOCOLATE. In these we have very valuable food combinations, especially in the good American brands, as they are not adul terated, as are most of the importations. While cocoa contains an alkaloid close ly related to caffein in coffee, its gen eral character differs widely from coffee or tea, and it hardly deserves to be classed simply as a beverage, as it near ly approaches milk in its composition a3 a complete food. While chocolate, on ac count of the large amount of fat con tained, is too heavy for persons of deli cate digestion and young children, we have the more delicate preparation of breakfast cocoa, that contains all the other nutritious elements, but with most of the fat eliminated.' In this article of food we have albuminous substances, starch and phosphates, making clear to the housewife the fact that in these preparations she has both meat and drink, which explains the reason why she should not serve these two beverages with other heavy, rich dishes, contain ing a large amount of same elements. Chocolate and cocoa are essentially bev erages for the lightest and daintiest re pasts, and the woman who eats her lunch alone and sparingly will be wise to substitute it with vegetable or fruit salads and white bread and butter, for the proverbial cup of tea. COFFEE AND TEA. These popular beverages though wide ly different in taste and appearance, have one feature in common with cocoa, and in fact with all beverages of this class in general. The alkaloid which Is the nerve stimulating principle is the same, or presumably so, in all. In cocoa, it is theobromin, in coffee caffein, and thein in tea. To these stimulating effects no doubt are due our liking for these bev erages. That the result differs in effect upon the system is no doubt due to the different principles and essential oils they contain, and also in mode of prepa ration. Coffee and tea are stimulating beverages that have no food value other than to supply liquid to the body and prevent waste of tissue.
