Every Sufferer From Catarrh Knows That Salves, Lotions, Washes, Sprays and Douches Do Not Cure. Powders, lotions, salves, sprays and in halers cannot really cure Catarrh, be cause this disease is a blood disease, and local applications, if they accomplish anything at all, simply give transient re lief. Thecatarrhal poison is in the Wood and the mucous membrane of the no.e, throat and trachea tries to relieve- the system by secreting large quantities of mucous, the discharge sometimes closing up the r.cstr.is. dropping into the throat, causing d-afness by closing the Eu stachian tubeg, and after a time caus ing catarrh of stomach, or serious throat and lung troubles. A remedy ta really cure catarrh must be an internal remedy which will cieanse the bio hI from catarrhal poison and re move the fever and congestion from the mucous membrane. The best and most modem remedies for this purpose are antiseptics scien tifically known as Euealytol. Guaiacoi. t-anguinaria and Hydrastis, and while each of these have b n successfully used separately, yet it has been difficult to get them ail combined in one pal atable, convenient and efficient form. The manufacturers of the new catarrh cure, Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, have succeeded admirably in accomplishing this result. They are large, pleasant tasting leaecges, to be dissolved in the mouth, thus reaching every part of the mucous membrane of the throat and finally the stomach. Unlike many catarrh remedies. Stuart's Catarrh Tablets contain no co caine, opiate or any injurious drug whatever and are equallv beneficial for little children and adults. Mr. C. P.. Rembrandt, of Rochester. N. X., says: "T know of few people who have suffered as much as I from Catarrh of the head, throat and stom ach. I used tprays. inhalers and powd ers for months at a time with oiiiv slight relief and had no hope of cure. "l had not the means to make a change of climate, which seemed my only chance of cure. Last spring I read an account of some remarkable cures tr.a by Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and promptly bought a fifty cent box from my ir.is.sn.t and ob tained s'-fh positive benefit from that one package that I continued to use them daily uctii now I consider myself entirely free from the disgusting annoy ance cf catarrh; my head is clear, my d'i gestorj ail I could ask and my hearing which had begun to fail as a result r.f the catarrh, has greatly improved until I feel I can hear as well as ever. They are a household necessity In my familv. Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are sold by druggists at SO cents for complete treat- f. merit and for convenience, safety and rrn:pt results they are undoubtedly the looked tor catarrh cures, t Mrs. B, B. Clary goes to Kansas City Wednesday for a visit with friends. Mr. and Mrs. G, M. Tiiford and daugh ter rjoltie have returned from a short trip to Chicago.

The Queen Advised to Call Lawmak ers Together in December. New Tork. Nov. 13. A dispatch to the Tribune from London says: Lord Salisbury has advised the queen, to take the. unusual step of summoning parliament to meet in the last month of the year. The announcement, how ever, occasions little surprise, as.it has been generally understood that owing to the prolongation of hostilities in South Africa the government would be badly in want of money before the usual date, early in February, -when the country had been led to believe the new parliament would be called together. The chan cellor of the exchequer's initial estimate of 10,000,X0, framed a yer ago, has already been many times exceeded. His latest estimate, prepared in the course of last summer, amounted to about i), .".;. 0. It v. as based, however, upon the supposition that by September the re sistance of the Boers would have been completely crushed and the bulk of the British troops enabled to return home. Sir Michael Hicks-Beach's expectations have not been fulfilled and it will be found necessary to seek further supplies from parliament next month. The most, conservative estimate at which the ul timate cost of the Boer war is now put is the sum of 100,000.000. Dr. Morrison's statement of the terms which the powers have agreed to press upon China as the basis of a preliminary treaty are almost the same as those in formally approved a month ago. Mr. Conger's excellent proposal that China should pledge herself to dismiss imme diately officials within whose jurisdiction outrages on foreigners should be com mitted has. however, been accepted in a modified shape. Germany will be pleased to hear of the erection of the monument to her murdered minister. The transfers of cabinet officers were registered at the council at Windsor yesterday and the foreign office was turned over to Lord Lansdawne. More interesting incidents of the day were the reception of General Buller by the Duke of Connaught, Lord Wolseley and other associates at military head quarters and the departure of the Duke of York's guard of honor for Australia. General Builer was recognised by the crowds in the streets and loudly cheered as he drove with Lady Audrey to the war office and his welcome Inside was. most cordial. He was not received as a conqueror, but as a sturdy soldier who had done his best and had properly con fessed that he had rightly lost the chief command. The embarkation of the picked force of guardsmen, militia and volunteers for Australia excited great enthusiasm. It was a fresh sign that imperial interests now dominate the English administration and that advan tage will be taken of every opportunity for tightening the bonds uniting the col onies with the mother country. The Society of American Women in creased the strain of gaiety yesterday bv holding its first luncheon for the sea son at Princes. It was a brilliant and enjoyable affair. Mrs. Griffin presided with her usual grace, and among those present were Mrs. George Alexander. Mrs. George H. Bough too. Miss Lena Ash well and Miss Ray Rockman. The Terkes syndicate is now repre sented in London by Mr. Davids, but Mr. Loudenback is expected on Wednes day, and important developments will speedily follow in carrying out the project for the construction of the new -underground electric railway from Char ing Cross to Hampstead. Commissioner Richard Young, of New Tork, who started last spring on a jour ney around the world, has returned to London with Mrs. Young, after a serious ad-venrure. Ke was wrecked in the Sea of Marmora after a long journey through Russia, his ship being run down in col lision and the passengers being taken off by a Greek vessel. He continued his journey through Palestine and Egypt and is now homeward bound to New York in excellent health. O00D ENOUGH FOU THEM. New York Presbytery Stands by "Westminster Conf233ioru New York. Nov. 13. With a majority of one vote, and that the vote of the moderator, the New York presbytery decided that the Westminster confession with its doctrine of predestination was good enough to remain as the creed of the Presbyterian church. The number of votes cast was 142, of which 109 were recorded as votes of clergymen and S3 as votes of elders of the church. The action taken at the meeting was founded on an "overture" which had been sent out to all the presbyteries of this coun try by the general assembly of the Pres byterian church for the purpose of as certaining the opinion of the various bodies of the church on the question of revising the creed. When the vote had been counted it was found that 71 favored revision and 71 op posed it. The announcement that the vote was a tie created a stir among those rresent. The stated clerk. Dr. Birch, drew the attention of the assembly to the rule governing the presbytery which provides mat in a case of a tie the mod erator shall cast the deciding vote. Dr. Wiley had already voted in his individ ual capacity and his vote had been re corded as against revision. The mod erator then cast his vcte with the ayes, u-e ai.ti-tt-vuioa.ists carrying the day. OUTSIDER'S OBSERVATIONS Thinks There Wsi Too Much Law lessness Last Wight. To the Editor of the State Journal: I am a stranger in Topeka and the spec tacle witnessed last night in your streets caused me to wonder if I was reailv in civilized. Christianized America. Tha scene may have been duplicated in the cities throughout the land, where so-called ratification meetings were held, hence, Topeka need not be singled but in this instance. If ratifying the election of the success ful candidate to the dignified position of president of the "t'nited States means li cense for hoodlumism, the intent and pur pose was fully carried out irt your city last night. On one comer I witnessed a dozen young men In a free-for-all slug ging match, faces were bruised, hats broken and passers by ruthlessly pushed and -jammed. One young girl accompan ied by her mother was grabbed about the wrists by force and dragged across the street, being unable to extricate herse'f. Hundreds of similar cases eouid be men tioned, still no officer of the law could be seen who might, at leat. attempt to force civilization where apparent insanity pre vailed. At the hotel where I am stopping groups of young men" wnuld frequently find their way to the wash room and there pass around bottles of whisky which they carried in their pocket, and thus regaled, would return to the streetn to more emphasize rudeness in language and actions, uncorked political enthusiasm. I am not claiming that had the "ratify ing" been for the successful candidate of the Democratic party that a similar seene would not have ensued. Is it possible, in enlightened and prog ressive America, that to express national pride and enthusiasm, we must shame tha brute in brutishness, and out-do the so called heathen in heathenish conduct? Ia it not a time right now to ponder on these matters of vital Import concerning our national conscience when we are assum ing to show other per pies how to govern thtmseh-ea? I doubt if a band of Filipino would handle their own people as rudely and offer tha insults that were frequent on your streets last evening. Another point is well to consider, that of the erroneous expense of political cam paigns in this country. There seems no lack of funds for red fire. Are works, bands of rnusfe, campaign uniforms, etc., etc., but doubtless manv a donor t these funds would plead poverty if anoroached to subser.be to a worthy charitv, or a chureh fund. This taxing of office-holders to support political campaigns has be come a crime, and ia carried to the ex. tent that it pauperizes those who hold eff'ree, both in municipal and national gov ernments. They are compelled to respond to the call for financial r.e'p whether they pay their coal and grocery biiis or not. The eyes of ail nations are Used upon America's progress: are looking to Amer ica for light, recognizing our power and influence; shall they be disappointe i in looking to us for the highest civilization? M. A. T.. Transient. A HUGE SUM. Chinese Indemnity Figured at $600, 000,000. New York, Nov. 13. A dispatch to the Herald from Washington says: Secretary Hay is much Irritated over reports from Pekin showing that the ministers are determined to punish every influential Chinaman who they think is responsible for the recent outrages and showing aiso that the indemnity to be demanded will reach $600,000,000. The secretary is anxious that the powers shall submit demands that can be ac cepted by China. Officials at Washington hold that ex amples should be made only of those conspicuously guilty and that the amount of indemnity should certainly be not more than $200,000,000. It is point ed out that if all the leading men are sentenced to death they will in self defense organize a resistance, which will necessitate further military operations, the end of which no one can foresee. The president and Secretary Hay are anxiously awaiting the result of the de liberations cf the ministers. It is plain that the ministers are not pleased over the developments of the last few days. Lieutenant General Miles, acting se retary of war. has been advised of the departure for Manila of the last Ameri can troops, which were under orders to leave China. The force now under Gen eral Chaffee consists o the Fourteenth infantry, a sqaudron of the Sixth cavalry, and battery F of the Fifth ar tillery. The United States has thus withdrawn its troops after the necessity for their presence has passed. At the same time the protection of American interests and the American legation is assured by tht maintenance of a guard of nineteen hun dred men. Minister Wu is anxious that this force shall be further reduced and Secretary Hay has announced his will ingness, provided other nations with draw. STATE SECRETS LEAK. Anxiety to Discover the Source Ex hibited by Gen. Miles. New York, Nov. 13. It is probable, says a Herald dispatch from Washing ton, that Lieutenant General Miles will make an effort to discover the person responsible for the publication of the fact that the army has obtained posses sion of the plans used in the construction of the field gun of the French army. Officers of the army are deeply inter ested in the disclosure, and they ex pect that the next meeting of the board of ordnance and fortifications will be a stormy one. Any inquiry will be of a secret character. MRS. BRYAN GLAD TO STAY AT HOME. Defeated Presidential Candidate's Wife Prefers Domestic Guiet to National Prominence. . ' -.

MASKED BURGLAR. Attempts to Rob the Wife of a Chicago Millionaire. Chicago, Nov, 13. A negro burglar forced his way to the apartments of Mrs, Orrin W. Potter, wife of the mil lionaire steel man and banker, in her home, 130 Lake Shore Drive, shortly af ter 1 o'clock this morning and when discovered in the act of applying a sponge saturated with chloroform to the nostrils of his victim, struck her a fierce blow on the head with a slungshot. The shock of the blow rendered Mrs. Potter unconscious and the doctors who were called fear that she may not recover. Just before being struck Mrs. Potter roused the household with a shrill cry for help. Mrs. Potter's daughters.Miss Margaret and Miss Bessie, heard their mother's screams for help and rushed to her bed chamber. WThen they saw the robber they fled into the street and called for help. The robber fied as soon as the young women began screaming in the street. After he had gone the daughters re turned to the house, called a physician for their mother and then notified the police of what had happened. This is the second burglary in the Potter residence since last spring. In April last porch climbers secured $18,000 in diamonds and jewelry. This morning the intruder was fright ened away before he had secured any thing. How the robber secured an entrance without awakening some member of the household is a mystery to the police. It is thought he knew the surroundings and that he had been waiting an op portunity to enter unnoticed. It is thought by the police that he had an accomplice who waited on the outside in order to warn his companion of any danger. When the poliee arrived they found Mrs. Potter still unconscious. Biood was streaming from her head and by the side of the bed was found a small bottle on which was a label bearing the word chloroform. The poliee believe that they have an important clew in the label on the bottle, as they hope to' get a definite description of the man who purchased the drus Miss Potter was also overcome by the shock she received when the robber threatened her and through fear of her mother's condition it was necessary to give her medical attention. Had not Mrs. Potter been awakened by the robber it is thought that he would have succeeded in securing many thousands of dollars worth of jewelry. Her room is away from those of the other members of the family and it ia thought he would have been able to work unmolested. Shortly after the doctor arrived Mrs. Potter revived long enough to give a description of her assailant but again lost consciousness. She said she thought the man was wearing a mask and that he looked like a negro. He was about 30 years old and was well dressed. Mr. Potter was asleep in an adjoining room and he was not awakened until the robber had commanded his daugh ters to remain silent. He jumped from his bed and reached the down stairs hall just as the man jumped through the door to the ground. TO TRAIN IN CALIFORNIA. Chicago National League Ball Club Will Try Loe Angeles. Chicago, Nov. 13. President James A. Hart of the Chicago National League Baseball club, has returned from his three weeks' vacation trip through the west and south with enthusiastic re ports of the advantages to be found in California for a spring training ground. As a result of Mr. Hart's visit to the coast the Orphans are quite likely to go to California early next spring to con dition themselves for the championship race of 1301, although nothing definite has yet been done in the matter beyond looking over the ground. Los Angeles Is the particular spot on the map which Mr. Hart considers most desirable and the people of that city are anxious to have the team go there to train. y. The prospective trip to California car ries with it a decided slash in the num ber of men who will make up the Chi cago team next year. Mr. Hart argues that it would be folly to think of mak ing such an extensive trip with the num ber of men the team carried last year and consequently the management will take only the pick of the present staff. President Hart said: "I did not complete details of the trip, but from present indications we un doubtedly will select Los Angeles for our training place next spring. ."The trip, will, of course, be very ex pensive, but we can cut down expenses considerably by playing exhibition games on the coast with the local base ball teams. There are a number of good teams on the coast." Do not get sc?red if your heart troubles you- Moet likeiy you suffer from indiges tion.
