A New Catarrh Cure Secures National Popularity in Less Than One Year. Throughout a great nation of eighty million it is a desperate struggle to se cure even a recognition for a new ar ticle to say nothing of achieving popular favor, and yet within one year titaurt s Catarrh Tablets, the. new catarrh cure, tiaa met with such success that today it can be found in every drug store throughout the United States and Can ada. To be sure, a large amount of adver tising was necessary in the first in stance to bring the remedy to the at tention of the public but every one fa miliar with the subject knows' that ad vertising alone never made anv article permanently successful. It must have in addition absolute, undeniable merit, and this the new catarrh cure certainly possesses in a marked degree. Physicians, who formerly depended upon inhalers, sprays and local washes or ointments now use iStaurt's Catarrh Tablets because, as one of the moot prominent stated, these tablets contain In pleasant, convenient form all the really efficient catarrh remedies, such as red gum, Guiacol, Eucalyptol, and Sanguinaria. They contain ro cocaine nor opiate, and are given to little children w ith en tire safety and benefit. Dr. J. J. Reitlger. of Covington, Ky., says; I suffered from catanh in niv head and throat every fall, with stop page of the nose and irritation in the throat affecting my voice and often ex tending to the stomach, causing catarrh of the stomach. I bought a fifty cent package of Staurt's Catarrh Tablets at my druggists, carried them in my pocket and used them faithfully, and the way in which they cleared my head and throat was certainly remarkable. I had no catarrh last winter and spring and consider myself entirely free from any catarrhal trouble. Mrs. Jerome Ellison, of Wheeling, W. Va., writes: I suffered from catarrh nearly my whole ltf and last winter mv two children also suffered from catarrhal colds and sore throat so much they were out of school a large portion of the win ter. My brother who was cured of catarrhal d-afness by using Staurt's Catarrh Tablets urged me to try them eo much that I did so and am truly thankful for what they have done for myself and my children. I always keep a box of the tablets in the house and at the first appearance of a cold or sore throat we nip it in the bud and catarrh is no longer a household affliction with tis. Full sized1 packages of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are sold for fifty cents At ail druggists. SPORTING NEWS. Sharkey's Ire Aroused at He mark of Madden. Says lie Can Stop Kahlin in Six Rounds.

Chicago, Oct. 25. Arthur Irwin, the old-time baseball player, subsequently the manager for several years of the Philadelphia National league team, is in the city on business connected with his football score board. Mr. Irwin thinks Pennsylvania is strong this fall, and says Hare is the greatest football player who ever lived. Although he saw Penn beat Brown by only a small score, he does not regard the Brown team as at all strong, and was surprised at its defeat of Chicago. Referring to Lafay ette's good game against Princeton, he expressed the opinion that the Lafayette team, which he has also seen, was vast ly better than Browns. Irwin says the promoters of the new baseball league (American association) are doing a lot of talking throughout the east, and making a good many peo ple believe they have the promise of a good organization. Ball players, how ever, says Mr. Irw in, are not among the people who believe so. Irwin thinks Hanlon Is sincere in talk ing about his willingness to sell his star players. WHO IS TO SUCCEED YOUNG t Brush, Freedman and Soden Said to Have Selected Boston Man. New Tork, Oct. 25. That President Nick Young's days as president of the National league are numbered now seems certain. The question of who js to succeed the veteran has been a puxzle. President Charles Ebbetts of the Brook--lyn team announced today that Brush, Soden, and Freedman have selected a Boston newspaper man for the place, and that an at'.empt will be made to put him in office at the next meeting of the National league. Nick Young claims his term as president does not expire until the end of the ten-year agreement in 1901. Before the new National association meets in Chicago next month it is more than likely the National league will have Joined hands with the American league to fight their common enemy. The first step will be taken by the league magnates in conceding the Balti more and Washington territory to the American. The National association counts on Baltimore, with McGraw and Rohinson at the head of the team. Cupi.l Childs of the Chicago club, who is a resident of Baltimore, is authority for the state ment that McGraw and Robinson are to be at the head of the National associa tion club, and have their team practical ly chosen.

They occupy their own home, which was purchased by De Montreville out of his savings.

I think Wralcott can beat that Irishman in quick time, as he used to put it all over him when they boxed friendly bouts at New Dorp." When Sharkey was told of O'Rourke's statement he became hot-headed, and said: "I won't fight that fellow, as I never fought a colored man before, and don't intend to now.

KANSAS NEWS, J. W. Breidenthal Gives His Ideas of Campaign. Says JUany Bankers Who Op posed Party Before SOW IN LINE FOR HIM. Sees More Gains Than Losses For Fusionists. But Full Tote Must Be Out In Order to Win. Wichita, Oct. 25. J. W. Breidenthal passed through Wichita Wednesday on his way to Topeka. In speaking of the prospects of the fusion party he said: "The indications point to a complete victory for the fusion forces in Kansas, provided a full vote is polled. While it is true that a few former Populists and Democrats as well as a small percent age of Silver Republicans will vote for McKinley all these claims of large gains that are being made by Republicans are absolutely without foundation in fact except in counties where there has been a large increase in the vote as in Cowley county, where the increase in the vote in. Winfield has been largely Republican and in Crawford county where the Republicans will receive the benefit of about 500 Alabama negro voters that have come into the county since 1896. "In Osage county several hundred fu sion voters from among the coal miners have removed to Illinois thus reducing the fusion majority. Republicans are reporting great gains in these counties and pretend that the gains are the re sult of fiorjs. Wherever I go I have made special inquiry and I am confident that we have more gains than losses. The gains from Gold Democrats who voted for McKinley in 1896 will alone more than overcome the desertions. The Socialist vote will come largely from former Populists, but it must not be forgotten that the 1,250 middle of the road Populists are largely supporting the fusion ticket. Those who do not will vote the Socialist ticket. In 1896 many German fusionists voted for Mc Kinley on the money issue. Today prac tically all such are supporting Mr. Bryan and many who never voted our ticket axe now with us. "Another element of strength is the fact that the bankers of our state are not now alarmed with reference to the result of the campaign. In 1896 but few men whose notes matured in October could secure an extension. They were told to wait until after election, that if Mr. Bryan was elected they would not care to renew the loan. This materially alarmed many men and caused them to exert themselves in behalf of Mr. McKinley. Today this is all changed. Kansas bankers have an abundance of money to loan and are ready and anxious to make any good loan that is offered. They will not take the risk of losing a good loan by refusing to grant an extension. Our deposits as a result of our great crops have doubled since 1896 and our banks now hold $17,000,000 available for loans and no banker will undertake to say that the election of either McKinley or Bryan will affect our bank deposits. If a full vote is polled Mr. Bryan will carry the state by an Increased plurality over 1896." A SUSPECTED ROBBER, A Man Thought to Be Partner of Belle Plaine Burglar Caught. Wellington, Oct. 25. Robert Heth, who is thought to be one of the robbers who burglarized Foltz Bros.' general mer chandize store at Belle Plaine on the night of September 9. was brought to Wellington by Sheriff Shawver last night and lodged in Jail.

Mr. Curtis touched nearly every issue in the campaign and the speech was marked throughout by enthusiastic and frequent cheering.

I was in my office all the time the contest was going on. The Bailey supporters were A BACKWARD CHILD: ! I In a child that is backward in teetmng, look out ior rickets.

SCOTT & BQWttE, 409 Ptati sucot. New York. out working hard all the time, but when the ballot was counted it was seen to have gone entirely one-sided. "I have the greatest reBpect for the Bailey followers, for they made an hon orable fight." WILL BEAR BANANAS. Emporia Woman Has a Tree With Green Fruit On. From the Emporia Republican. "It may not be believed that bananas will grow in this climate, but it ia a fact and any doubter can be shown right here In Emporia. "Mrs. W. R. Irwin has five banana trees, one of which has grown fruit on it. The tree Is about ten feet In height, and this is the second year It has borne fruit. The two little bunches of green bananas, with ends turning up Instead of down, as fruit generally grows, are a cur iosity. At the lower end of the long stem Is a bunch of blossoms. These, however, Mrs. Irwin says, do not come until after the fruit has formed; thus, the flower comes on the banana, but a large, red wavy leaf folds over it in protection, so that only the flower can be seen. The tree will be taken to the drug store of Dr. Moore for the winter. The fruit will ripen in February." INDIAN RUNS AWAY. - Untutored Child of the Forest Objects to School. Arkansas City, Oct. 25.

Chicago, Oct. 25, The Marquette club held a prosperity harvest home festival at the Coliseum last night. Twenty-five hundred people sat at banquet tables on the main floor, beside a number of spec tators in the galleries. The immense hall was decorated with grain, fruits, pump kins and other products of the farm, giving the appearance of the floral building of an old-fashioned county fair. Four columns 12 feet high stood behind the speaker's platform, wreathed with corn and oats. The supper consist ed of turkey, pork and beans, doughnuts. cider and other rural viands. Speeches were delivered by Senator Hanna, J. K. Cubbison of Kansas and Henry D. Estabrook of Chicago. Senator Hanna was very late in reach ing the Coliseum, having addressed a meeting at Aurora earlier in the even ing. When Senator Hanna made hi3 ap pearance he was given a tremendous ovation, the entire assemblage rising and cheering him ror several moments. He said, in part: "Prosperity in this country Is a nor mal condition and it is only Interfered with when clouds arise in the horizon which frighten capital and drive it from the channels of trade into hiding places and capital withdrawn from its useful ness brings idleness end poverty with it. No business man will risk his capital In any venture if those clouds arise, and that will be the condition Just as soon as there is any change in the present administration. Mr. Bryan has descend ed to the lowest plane of demagoguery when he attempts to array employer against employe, labor against capital. It is a significant fact to me; it means sure defeat, because nothing but des peration or demogoguery would drive a man who aspires to the highest offi-e in this country to such arguments. He is sowing the seed of anarchism and so cialism. He is driving apart these great forces of capital and labor which united are productive of our development. In doing that he Is doing violence to the good sense of the people. President Mc Kinley'a whole public life has been in the direction of building up our great indus tries, protecting American workingmen, i saving them from the low wages of our competitors in Europe yet thi3 Moss of Bryanism proposes to offer to them promises based upon theory." j IN HOTEL JXmRIDOIlS. They were discussing the probable con dition of a man if he should chance to fall from the top of the wall on the new addition to the federal building, when a man who sells books broke in: "You may think it impossible, but I have known men to fall a greater distance than that and not be Injured in the least. It Is not Infrequently that "we read of men falling a distance, of fifty or sixty feet with no serious results. I remember of an instance when 1 was m St. Louis, of a boy about S years old. falling from the seventh floor of a building without receiving any more serious injury than a heavy jar. It h.ip pened In this way: the boy was leaning out of the window attempting to tly a kite when he lost his balance nd fell. He whirled over and over and struck a lot of telegraph wires, fortunately, about midway between the posts. The wire were somewhat slack and he bounced off and struck on the back of a horse, which was hitched In the street. In twenty min utes the boy was able to tell the people who picked him up where he had fallen from. Just in what position he was in when he struck the horse, I do not know, but I do know that he was not scrlousiy Injured for I was one of the men who picked him up." "I do not doubt your story in the least," snld a gontb-man who had been sit tin with the group listen ing to the conversation, "for 1 had an experience in falling which is jut as strange. Although I fell exactly 175 feet I am near todav to tell the tale and there is not a scratch or a scar to show for it. It happened In this wise: I was worklmr for an iron firm which took contracts for building iron bridges, smoke-stacks and Iron constructlqn generally anil was rent with a gang to build a smokestack fr a smelter In Colorado. The stack was to be 1T5 feet high and w hnd Just com pleted It, when the accident happened. In some way I lost my footing, failed to catch the ropes with my hands and down I went on the Inside of that stnek: I have frequently read of people falling great distances and have noticed that it seems to be the Trevrtlnt opinion that a man is unconscious before he reaches the f:roun.l. This I Can say from experience a untrue. I realized I was frilling and would bump from one side of the p;pe to the other. It seemed to me that I was a long time in petting- to the bottom, but I remember when I struck and did not lose consciousness for several minutes. It seemed to me that on my downward trip there was something pushing me back all the while and that it prevented me from falilnur as rapidly as I thouKht I should. When I was picked up and taken out the greatest wonder was expressed that I was alive, the Impression among" the other workmen being" that I would have to be gathered up with a dust pun. It was all explained to me In a very satisfactory manner by one of the engineers and his theory was sustained by the doctor. He said that in my downward trip that I hnd compressed the air in the stack and that in escaping past me it had thrown my body to the side of the pipe, thus break ing the fall. When I reached the bottom he figured that I struck on a compressed air cushion at least ten feet high and that I was let down almost as easily as I would have been If I had lighted on a feather bed twice as thick. The only bruises I got were those received in bouncing from one side of the pipe to the other. lie demonstrated his thpory with figures and references to scientists and I guess he was correct, for I did not have a bone broken and was able to resume my work in a few davs." "I met a man on the train coming up from Wichita who had more original ways of hunting than any one I ever knew," said a man who sells cigars. "He was telling m of a farm he had on the Arkansas river snd the amount of sport ho got by spending a short season the-e each year. According to the story he told me he has a man on the place who de votes his odd moments to devising ways and means of catching game without the aid of a gun or a net. Kvervone In this county Is acquainted with the fact that the Arkansas river is a great place for geese when the season comes on. and about every sportsman In the state has been there hunting at least once. This train acquaintance snld: 'My farm fs right on the river and I have (pen thous ands of geese there. Before I got the man that I now have in charge of the j rarm i would go nunting with my gun. but he taught me a trick worth two of that. He would go out on the sand bars and dig holes about two feet deeo and very narrow. In the holes he would put corn. The geese would come up the river ana wouia nna a tew grains or corn which tie nad dropped eround the holes and of ter eating that would rench down the noie ior more, the sand would slip and of course, the goose would scratch In i'.f endeavor to regain its footing Thi, would cause to sand to slide around Its head and the goose would be cautht. T have got up In the morning and have seen a sanonar tuu reef long completely covered with geese which had b-en caught by the device. The man made enough money from the feathers of the geese he caught In two winters to buv the farm adjoining mine and stock it In the beat manner possible. Jt Is due to his method of catching geese that thev are getting so scarce aiong tne river. Me also made a good lot of money during the winter months by catching rabbits In a unique inuiiMci. ne would scrape me Dark off of the base of a tree and on the whit" space thus made would paint a lnree black spot. He would fix probably fifty trees in mis way ana would then turn four dogs, which he hs especially trained. loose in ine woons. i ney woulfl scare lip tne: ihuuiw wiiiuii wciuiu run ror pat ty and. seeing the black spots on the tree would In their dash for llbertv mistake the spots for holes, and would break their necks by running Into them. During a good day he would collect at least a wagon load of rabbits, which had com mitted suicldo on account of their false judgment.' The man mnv have been ex aggerating the matter a little, but I don't see why it wouldn't work where the game was thick." "T would like to have as much money as Is spent each night at the lunch carts on the streets in any of the western cities." said a man whose business carries him out at night. "Every year there is more demand for night lunches and people are getting so they can't sleep without eat ing. It has only been a few rears ago when there were no such things as lunch carts and tamale wagons and ihre were only a few night lunch counters, and now every town is full of them. It used to be that the entire bill of fare at a lunch counter consisted of ham-sandwiches, coffee, pie and spring chieken in season. Nowadays, if a man wants to catch the trade with a night lunch coun ter or cart he must have all the old dishes with tamales. chili, ham and eeg sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, trllbvs tenderloin sandwiches and a dozen other new dishes that were not formerly at tempted. The hot Mexican dishes are general favorites, especially with people who stay out and drink beer. Nothing Is too hot for a man who Is drinking and the red pepper, which Is the principal Ingred ient of most Mexican dishes, m a good thing for him. In up-to-date lunch carts the ham used Is chopped and Is mur h better for making sandwiches than the el red ham and the ham and egg sand wiches made with chopped ham is mu-h easier to handle than the other. Chicken seems to have lost its hold with the night lunch people and pie is running away be- seems to be a favorite where It has been introduc-d. I have become So accu "om'd - .u van mgnt rare that I would rather miss my bed than my lunch. It Happened in a Drusr Store "One day last winter a lady came to my drug store and asked for a brand of cough medicine that 1 did not have In stock." says Mr. C. R. Grandln, the popular drue Rist of Ontario. N. Y. "She was disap pointed and wanted to know what couith preparation I could recommend. I said to her that I could freely recommend Chamberlain's Coneh Hemedv. nnd thnf she could take a bottle of the remedy and after srlvinft it a fair trtnl if she did not find it worth the money to hrlnar bsrk the bottle and I would refund the nrloa paid. In the course of a day or two the lady came back In company with a friend In need of a couuh medicine and advised her to buy a bottle of Chamberlain's Coueh Remedy. I consider that a verv ood recommendation for the remedy." It is lor sale oy ait aruggtsis. A social dance will be given at K. P. hall October 25. Admittance, 25 cents per couple.
