LIEUTENANT PETERSON
Says Peruna is the Finest Tonic
and Invigorator He
Ever Used.
Lieutenant Charles Peterson, Hook
and Ladder Co. No. 21. writes the follow
ing letter to The Peruna Medicine Co.,
from 27 Belmont avenue, Chicago. III.:
"Last year I had a severe attack of la
grippe which left me very weak, so "at
I was unable to perform my duties. Sev
eral of my friends adviswd me to build
up on Perur.a, and I found it by far the
finest tonic and lnvigorator I had ever
used. In two weeks I was strong and
veil, and if ever I am exposed to un-
usual hardship incident with my duties
at fires. I take a dose or two of Peruna
and find that it keeps me in goodhealtn.
Charles Peterson.
The above is only one of fifty thou
sand letters we have on file attesting
the merits of Peruna.
There are a grreat multitude of people
in ail parts of the land who have entire
ly lost their health as a result of la
grippe: who have recovered from an
attack, but find themselves with weak
ened nerves, deranged digestion, and
with but very little of their former
powers.
There is no disease known to man that
leaves the system in such an outrageous
and exasperating condition as la grrtppe.
For this class of sufferers. Peruna is a
Fpecific. Parana should be taken according-
to directions and in a few weeks
the sufferer wiil be entirely restored to
his accustomed health.

ing. Miss Redden's g-uestB were limited
to Miss McFarland's most Intimate
friends and the affair was an informal
one.
A literary salad was a pleasant fea
ture, but one that rather taxed the
brains of the gtaests; each one was given
a pretty little booklet, one page contain
ing a list of authors and another, one of
each author's best known books with the
letters transposed. Miss Emma Dennis,
Miss Mary Hambleton and Miss Virgie
Payne guessed all correctly, and upon
cutting Mis3 Hambleton turned tb.3
highest card and was given the prize,
a dainty volume of, "A Literary Court
ship." After the salad course Miss McFar
land was given a surjase in the shape
of a tin shower: a bushel basket was
brought in heaped with articles, secure
ly tied up and all guessed what they
contained. There were many useful
things and few duplicates.
A two course luncheon was served at
5:30. The guests invited for the occa
sion wer: Mrs. Walter Cust, Mrs. Carl
Xeliis, Miss Lillian McFarland. Miss
Emily Elliott, Miss Mary Hambleton,
Miss Marie Brooks, Miss Virgie Payne,
Miss Herdena Crandell. Miss Jean Frost,
Miss Lida Bergen, Miss Celeste Kellis,
Miss Anna Keliis, Miss Santa Waters,

the guests spent the time in making
blocks for a quilt for Miss McFarland.
Saturday afternoon, October 6, Mrs.
Eugene B. Stotts entertained the mem
bers of the Junior Atlantean club In her
honor. A china shower was one of the
features of the afternoon and all sorts
of pretty and useful bits of china were
given here.
Mrs. Walter Cust gave an informal
afternoon in her honor, Tuesday, Octo
ber 16, at her home In Potwin. It was
in the nature of a roller towel shower,
and with the exception of two out of
twelve, all of the towels happened to be
exactly alike.
The following- day Miss McFarland
was howered with pictures at the home
of Miss Marie Brooks; each guest gave
her a pretty Perry picture, mounted. and
inscribed on the back with an appropri
ate quotation.
Thursday, the ISth, Miss Mary Ham
bleton gave for her what might be term
ed a heart luncheon, as the cakes,
creams and melons were served in
heart shape and everything else was in
harmony. Miss Marie Brooks shared the
honors with Miss McFarland that dav.
Friday evening Miss Pearl McFarland
entertained at supper for her sister and
Mr. Forbes. At the close of the supper
which, was served on small tables, the
guests all stood in a circle, locked arms
and the loving cup was passed, each one
toasting the bride and groom.
Saturday, Miss Emily Elliott was the
hostess at a 5 o'clock tea; the special
feature of this affair was the floral love
tale which was written on, small hearts.

couragement received from all classts.

ful progress.

PRAISE FOR SALISBURY
On Account of His Recent Seal With
Germany.
New York, Oct. 23. The English press
with the exception of the Times, which
is remarkably cool, continues to praise
Lord Salisbury for his astuteness in
drawing Germany Into a dual alliance,
says the Tribune's London correspond
ent. That journal's contention that Ger
many has gained a great advantagefrom
the agreement without offering a quid
pro quo to England is supported by the
Berlin and Cologne press, which assumes
that the German emperor has scored
heavily. The St. James Gazette and
other journals reply that England has
granted nothing to her new partner that
she was rot willing to share with the
whole world in the Tangtse region and
elsewhere in the far east. If this agree
ment leads to the abandonment of the
insidious doctrine of "spheres of in
fluence." and the substitution for it of
the "open door" principle, the results of
Salisbury's statesmanship will not be
measured by the rule of thumb notions
of compensation.
Some alarm is felt in connection with
the abrupt action of Lord Salisbury in
divulging the agreement with the re
ported determination of the Marseilles
municipality to receive Kruger with
official honors as president of the Trans
vaal and also with the preparations for
bringing the second channel squadron
Into commission. The Marseilles pro
gramme has either been modified or dis
avowed and there is no evidence that
the British, government ia taking up

Thursday night.
Old Geronimo, the Apache chief who caused the United States army more
trouble than any other one Indian, is expected to be with the band. He is 65
years old. It cost a great deal of money and a great many lives to effect his
capture which was accomplished about eight years ago. Following iis capture
he was kept a prisoner with his followers in Florida until about two years ago
when they were taken to Oklahoma.
The band of war dancers who will entertain a Topeka audience at the Audi
torium Thursday evening will include some of his followers and noted chiefs and
braves from other tribes who are livintt in Oklahoma, The prospects at present
are t-ir a crowded hous. The admission has been placed at 25 cents. The pro
ceeds go to sweil the fund for the payment of the Auditorium seats.

PRINCETON AGAINST BRYAN
Faculty Members Denounce the
Hodern Democracy.
New Tork, Oct. 23. According to a
poll which has just been taken of the
officers of Princeton university on their
presidential preferences, not a single
professor of the eighty questioned has
been found who will admit that he is go
ing to vote for Bryan.
In a canvass at this kind President
Patton does not count, for the reason
that he is not an American citizen. Dr.
Patton was born, In the Bermudas, and
although he has lived In the United
States for the greater part of his life,
he owns considerable property in the
Bermudas, which under the will which
bequeathed It to him. is forfeited if he
ever renounce his British citizenship.
Not having a vote the president is al-w-ays
non-committal concerning United
States politics. He has two sons, how
ever, one a professor in the college, and
the other a New Tork business man,
who are both Republicans, and it
is the general impression that If he has
any predilections concerning the present
campaign, they are in support of the ad
ministration. The balance of the faculty may be di
vided into those who are Republicans,
and would naturally vote the McKinley
ticket; those who can not or will not
vote at all, and those who are Demo
crats, but will vote for McKinley be
cause they can not stand Bryan. There
is, besides, one active supporter of the
Prohibition ticket, and a number who
will not commit themselves, or whose
views could not be ascertained.
Samuel Rose Winans, Ph. D., the dean
of the faculty, when asked where he
stood in relation to the presidential Is
sues, said:
"I have always been a Democrat, as
my father was before me. and so long as
there was a Democratic party I cast my
vote for its candidates, but I now do not
hesitate to say that I shall vote for Mc
Kinley as the choice of two evils."
Prof. John K. Finlay has been in New
Jersey less than a year, but he said that
if he could Vote his ballot would be cast
for McKinley.
Prof. Wyckoff, author of "The Work
ers," said:
"To my mind the Issue is between
McKinleyism and Bryanism. I am op
posed to McKinley's views on the tariff,
but I consider him to be infinitely the
better man of the two. After the views
set forth by Bryan on the financial ques
tion four years ago tie should never be
elected to the presidency. I regard him
as the most dangerous man that has
ever spread his doctrines in this coun
try. I shall vote for McKinley."
Dr. Henry Van Dyke Murray said:
"I have not been in New Jersey during
the last year, and consequently have
lost my vote at the coming election. I
have always been , a Cleveland Demo
crat, but could not vote for Bryan."
Dr. Wm. Libbey is another Democrat
who will vote for McKinley, although he
has been a lifelong opponent of the pres
ident's party and doctrines.
Dr. Chas W. Shields is a Democrat
of the old school, but he will vote for
McKinley.
Other Democratic members of the fac
ulty who will not vote for Bryan are
Dr. Woodrow Wilson, assistant profes
sor; Harry Franklin Covington and
Stockton Anson.
David Magie. Edward Curtis Osborne,
the Rev. John Thomas DufHeld and fifty
five other members of the faculty are
Republicans and will vote for McKinley.
Alderman Sent to JaiL
Cleveland, Oct. 23. Judge Wing of the
common pleas court today ordered Presi
dent D. B. Steur of the city council sent

Commercial Club in Great Bend.
E. R. Moses, president of the E. R.
Moses Mercantile company of Great

Great Bend is soon to have an active

due in this matter to the efforts of Mr.
Moses who has been an ardent supporter
of the plan.

IN HOTEL CORRIDORS.
"Every man has an Idea that he can
cook if he only want to," said an ob
servant man. "I do not mean that they
think they can concoct the dishes of the
famous chefs, the Ingredients of which
no man has knowledge, but they do
think that they can cook steaks and
chops and fish or such ordinary every
day food. A man who has occasionally
fried an egg or a piece of steak and
some potatoes while his wife or hired
girl was absent la ever afterward thor
oughly convinced that he is a cook and
that he could make a housekeeper
ashamed of her cooking if he only chose
to do so. I have also noticed that men
who go hunting or fishing a great deal
and do their own cooking while in camp
are imbued with the idea that there is
not another sportsman on earth who can
cook game or fish as well as he can. As
a matter of fact the regulation camp
grub would make the ordinary man very
sick, and is only relished by the sports
men because they have worked up an
appetite by outdoor exercise. I ustd to
do a good' deal of talking about my abil
ity to cook fish when in camp, and last
summer while I was up on the lakes in
Minnesota with an outing party I had
a chance to prove my assertions. I had
been telling some of the party how a
noted fisherman had taught me to pre
pare a bass in a way that was most
tempting, and after we had been in esmp
a few days and had got a little tired of
fried fish the fellows insisted that I cook
a bass in the way I had been telling
them about. As a matter of fact I had
never cooked a bass, except to fry one.
in all my life. The Instructions I had
received were not very explicit, but I
had talked about it so much that there
was nothing I could do but try. They
were all very skeptical and cast many
withering glances at me, so I determined
to go about it. All there was to do was
to clean the fish, put on a thick slice of
bacon in it and plaster the whole fieh
with clay about one inch in thickness.
The instructions, as near as I could re
member, were to lay the clay-covered
fish in a bed of live coals, cover
it with more live coals and take it out
when the clay had cracked. I never took
as much Interest in anything in my life
as I did in cooking that fish and the way
I watched for the clay to crack would
have convinced a cat watching a mouse
hole that she was very inattentive. It
took about half an hour longer than I
expected and the fellows stood around
and made humorous remarks while I
singed my hands patting the coals. It
was a great success though, and I never
saw a prettier dish than that fish made.
The skin and scales came off with the
clay and there lay the meat steaming
hot with just enough bacon grease in it
to give it a fine flavor. I did a lot of
boasting over my success and the rest
of them were liberal with their praise,
but in spite of all their requests for more
of the same dish I refused to again try
my hand, for I was fearful of the out
come and I didn't want to spoil the rep
utation I had established aa a bass
cook."
"I met a very 'cheerful and graceful
offhand liar on the train a few days
ago," said a traveling man who lao
claims membership in the Ananias club.
"This fellow was a very intelligent look
ing man, and I at first thought he was
a lawyer, but during our conversation
he told me that he was a farmer and
that he dealt in live stock. We had
exhausted the subject of politics because
we both agreed and could not get up an
argument on that much abused topic
We finaly drifted into the subject of
railroad wrecks and then I saw where
my acquaintance was at home. He told
stories of slaughter in wrecks that were
bloodcurdling and dwelt with evident
relish on his descriptions of imaginary
mangled human remains Where he
was long, though, was on his causes for
the wrecks. He related some very pecu
liar instances that displayed the deft
hand of the practiced and accomplished
liar, and capped them all by telling how
he was crossing the desert in Utah on
the Central Pacific when suddenly the
cars began to sway just as they do when
running on a track that ias many re
verse curves in it. The train came to a
stop with several trucks off, but no se
rious damage was done. The passengers
all got out to see what was the trouble,
and it was found that for some distance
the track was warped by the heat of the
sun and was twisted much as iron gird
ers are that nave been In a fire. The
crew were at a loss to know what to do,
but as there were some toois on the
train it was finally decided to take out
a rail and see if that would not help
matters. Accordingly a rail was re
moved from each side of the track, and
it was found that was just the remedy.
The track straightened out and the va
cancy caused by the removal of the
rails was filled by the expansion of the
remainder. The train proceeded, but at
the first section house they stopped and
sent back the section gang so that they
could be on hand at night when the rails
cooled and contracted, and replace the
rails the train crew had removed."
'The 'jay' from the west certainly cuts
no more absurd figure in the east than
the eastern 'jay' cuts when he comes to
the west and attempts to display his su
perior knowledge," said a gentleman who
owns several w heat farms in the western
part of the state. "There was a fellow
who came to our country who formerly
lived in that highly enlightened state
Massachusetts, and he thought that ail
the knowledge he had overlooked was
not worth going back to pick up. He
had not been a farmer In his own coun
try, but seemed to think that anyone
could farm in this etate even if they
did not know when to husk alfalfa or
when to water stock. The man whom I
am speaking of was one of the very
brightest of the bright: he had grad
uated at some school of national repu
tation and thought that all that he had
not learned ther he could acquire by
observation. Observation is all right
as far as it goes, but, as my friend
found, it does not go very far. He had
not lived in the state two weeks before
the boys had him out hunting snipe.
They also had him watching the old
buffalo wallows for buffalo. He got wise
in time and refused to bite at any of the
games the boys would try to put up on
RHEUMATISM
As experience stands, the
most promising way to treat an
old settled rheumatism is: to
set up the general health.
Whatever makes health, in
other respects, is good for
rheumatism.
We don't say it will cure it.
Sometimes it does; sometimes
it don't.
Your chance is better with
Scott's emulsion of cod-livei
oil than with anything else now
known.
By and by there will be a sure
cure; it will make a big noise
in the world when it comes

mosquito netting. He figured that after
the rain plenty of air was what the
wheat needed, but he had also heard
that the wheat must be covered. He
struck what he thought was the only
way to completely cover. all the require
