Temporary check to their plans merely stimulates them to re newed effort. Such men are the -winners in life's battle. Weak ling's look on at the undertakings of these men with languid eye and sigh for their successes. Such a man is Chief of Police Mason of New Bedford, Mass., who writes the following letter to the public on the merits of Dr, Greenes Nerrura blood and nerve remedy : " It gives me pleasure to add my testimony in this brief note to that of many others, of the high esteem in which Dr. Greene's "ervura blood and nerve remedy is held in this com munity. The fact that it is the pre scription of a regular physician adds to the confidence in which it is held by the public I have given Dr. Greene s Jfervura to a personal friend who was ill, and was rejoiced to hear from his own lips an account of the benefit he had received. From report and experience, no doubt exists of the great value of Dr. Greene's Kervura, which I recommend. "HESRY W. MASON, " Chief of Police of Hew Bedford, Max." In the full knowledge that disease is the relentless foe of mankind, most men flaunt the banner of impudence in the face of the giant and court his heaviest on slaught. 'ot until his heel is on their necks do they realize how outraged Nature can assert herself. The struggle for health, perhaps for breath, is then begun and no one can see beyond the gloom. It is not the man who is always afraid of taking cold or who fusses about exposure that keeps out of harm's way ; it is the man whose robust constitution and steady nerves defy disease ; whose blood is not the sluggish element that fills the vein of the weakling, but the pure, rich red blood of health. - --- ' ir$ X -V r . : V ,. -x:-' vT:: -" i : : ' J K CHIEF OT POUCK HIXRI W. MASOJT. i for iho Blood? ssaii Dr. Greene's Xervura blood and nerve remedy is the discovery of the celebrated Dr. Greene, and nothing ever prepared for the ills of men and women is so clearly an aid to Nature. Made entirely of vegetable elements, it will of itself cure all ordinary cases of debility or nervous exhaustion. When the cases are complicated with the remnants of some devastating disease, Dr. Greene's advice should be sought, and the remedies at his disposal, his own discoveries, used as he advises, will bring promptly the indications of returning health sound sleep, quiet nerves, hope and ambition. Dr. Greene's treatment is the quickest and surest road to health. Many years of constant experience with human ills, and a success greater than that of any other physician, should give confidence to every sufferer who needs advice and help, and who reads these words of comfort and hope. DR. GREENE OFFERS FREE ADVISE. Are yon bowed down with despair because of ill-health ? Are your days passed in misery and your nights in torture? Does darkness surround your pathway? Are you without hope of recovery, and wishing for death to relieve joa ? Are you tempted to take the fatal step of ending your suffering and mental anguish with a violent hand ? Cheer up, there is certain help for yon, prompt and kindly. Consult Dr. Greene. Call, if you can, at his office, 35 West 14th Street, New York City. If you can't calf, you can write all about your case and in either event yon will receive his advice free of charge. METHODIST WORE. Annual Keport of the Board of Edu cation Is Out. New York. Dec. 6.

TOPEKA'S BIRTHDAY. City Federation Celebrates the Event With an Interesting Session. One of the most interesting events that has transpired in club circles for some time was the joint meeting of the City Federation and the Daughters of the American Revolution which was held in Unity church Wednesday afternoon. To day is the regular day for the December meeting of the Federation but as Wed nesday was the forty-sixth birthday cf Topeka.it was decided that a joint meet ing be held in order that the day might be observed in an appropriate manner. The programme, decorations and the social hour were in charge of the Daughters cf the American Revolution and they deserve much credit for the manner in which they carried out their arrangements. The place of honor on the platform was occupied by large pic tures of George and Martha Washing ton draped with Hags; the walls were draped with immense flags and flag3 served as portieres. A feeling of envy was aroused in many hearts by the old fashioned hand-woven coverlets which draped the rauings, and w hich are the swellest thing for portieres. probably ow ing as much to their rarity as anything else. The desk was graced by a bunch of exquisite chrysanthemums sent by Mrs. Hague, one of the members of the Federation. The ladies w ho took part in the pro gramme were seated on the platform with Mrs. Thompson, the federation president. The forty-sixth birthday of Topeka was observed with an interesting as well as appropriate programme. It was op ened by a piano solo by Miss Mabel Martin. Mrs. Thompson then made an introductory speech in which she intro duced Mrs. J. D. McFarland who gave an informal talk on the early days in Topeka. Mrs. McFariand's taik was in teresting, especially to the old settlers present, as she told many personal rem iniscences which included them. In speaking of the Quantrel raid she said that for days there was so much fear of the raiders in Topeka that the people were afraid to undress at night, but went to bed In their clothes with small packages of valuables with widen thev were to escape if possible. Mrs. McFarland still has in her possession the little carpet-bag she was given then, containing her mother's wedding dress and various other articles and a number of these she showed to the audience. Following this was a vocal solo by a pupil of Miss Spencer at Washburn col lege. Mrs. D. C. Nellis then read an original poem entitled, "Topeka," which was de cidedly humorous; she did not come to Topeka until lisTO, and on that account she w as rather patronized by the old settlers because she had missed so many of the hardships of frontier life. She compared the customs of 1870 with those likeiy to prevail in 1954. Miss Ruth Collins' violin solo was fol lowed by an interesting talk by Mrs. Noble Prentis of Kansas City, formerly of Topeka. She strongly advocates the organization of local societies for the perpetuation of old" historical spots. She says that all over the state are interest ing historical places which are rapidly being destroyed as no one takes enough interest to look after their preservation. At Earned she says that the citizens are putting up markers along the old Santa Fe trail, and she suggests that this be done all through the state. Mrs. Prentis mentioned a library which was founded in Topeka many years ago with sev n hundred volumes and which had disap peared; there was only one person in the room w ho could tell that it had been de stroyed by fire, and many had never even heard of its existence. At the close of the programme the guests were invited into the lecture room which was fitted up with all kinds of local historical curiosities. There was priceless old china and silver, spinning wheels, old manuscripts and books, but the most curious of all was an old fashioned baby coach which belonged to the grandfather of Mrs. Thompson and Mrs. John E. Lord. Mrs. N. F. Handy, one of the D. A. R. dressed in a quaint Martha Washington costume, served coffee at a charming little table fitted up with odd candle sticks and old siiver. Preceding the programme a short bus iness meeting was held; the roll was called and the minutes of previous meetings read and approved. Mrs. Humphrey announced that the mid-winter meeting of the Federation had been condition of the programme. The Rus kln Art club was admitted Into mem given up this year owing to the crowded bership. Among the out of town guests were Mrs. Humphrey and Mrs. McKnieht of Junction City, Mrs. Minnie D. Morgan of Cottonwood Falls and Mrs. li. A. Black of Ottawa. A Football Trip Abandoned. New York. Dec. 6. The proposed trip of the Columbia university football team to California, which was to have taken place during the Christmas holi days, has been abandoned. The permis sion of the faculty of the university had been obtained but Manager Shoemaker received a telegram from the managers of hte University of California eleven, at whose invitation the trip was to have been taken, declining to guarantee the sum which Mr. Shoemaker considers requisite to cover the expenses of the trip. Mr. Shoemaker therefore decided to call the negotiations off. DISEASE and ' discomfort are not-ease and not-comfort. Ease is health ; so is comfort.

The Herald prints the following: Immediate action will be taken by the board of health to discover if adultera ted molasses is being sold in this city. This movement is the result of an agita tion in behalf of pure molasses that is now going on in New Orleans. According to the latest report of the department of agriculture in WashinK- ton a great part of the molasses output is adulterated with glucose, sorghum and other agents. At the office of Henry R. Hobart & Co., wholesale dealers, it was said that there is comparatively little demand for the pure molasses. ""We fell the 'mixed' article to nearly all our customers." said one of the firm. ' Of course, we have the pure molasses, but there is comparatively little demand for it. The mixed is simply a prepara tion of 50 per cent glucose and molasses. It is harmless and most consumers do not know the difference. In my opinion, fully 95 per cent cf the molasses that s sold here is adulterated. Only the highly colored or bleached article is harmful. We do not handle it. The reason the re tailers prefer the mixed molasses is thai there is more profit In it." IMPROPER PICTURES.

He was taken into cus tody at the instance cf Anthony Corn stock. The ten thousand films and nega tives are alleged to be in part, impro per. The federal authorities arrested Alex andra during the day on a charge of sending improper matter through the maiis. He was taken before Commis sioner Shields where he waived exami nation and he was held in $1,000 b.i', which he immediately furnished. The police claim young men would go to the rooms and poe for the pictures. SO LIQU0RA FTEIt 11 P. M. Decision of Massachusetts Court as to Night Saloons. Boston. Tec 6. The supreme court de cision on the liquor law which has sud denly brought about the strictest sort of observance of the 11 o'clock closing pro vision cf liquor licenses is the all im portant question to hotel proprietors "f Massachusetts. The retail liquor dealers of this city are formuiatir.g a petirloj to the incoming legislature to obtain their rights on the ground that ian- j holders will endeavor to get the exi.--tin law so changed as to permit them to serve their guests after closing hour". The retailers want midnight as the rks ing hour. This petition may develop a great battle at the state house, the tem perance advocates bringing t" treMr aid the police of many cities who hav bwt outspoken asrafnst th1 prevailing mid night reign of drunkenness and disorder in city resorts.
