Temporary check to their plans

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.

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.

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.

ADULTERATED SYRUP.
New York Board of Health Starts an
Investigation.
New York, Dec. 6. 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."

thnnsanil films and negatives of fh
American Electroscope company as well !
as the proprietor, John D. Alexandra of '
Brooklyn. It was the second time he ha i j
been arrested during the day, the fedf r:i I
authorities having first put him ur.der
apprehension. 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

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. The effect of the decis
ion which so unexpectedly closed every
bar in Boston at ll'o'el.xk Tueiv
night, was even more general last riiert.
for in every city in the state. In which
there are licensed burs In hotels did nt
wait for the. tick of the clock at the lim
it hour to stop their lirtr sales.
From Lowell. Lawrence, Fall River
and Bedford the story was the same, no
licenses apparently daring to risk the
least semblance of disregard for a law
that has suddenly become Ironclad la Its
prohibition.

For Trade Between South America
and Philadelphia.
Philadelphia, Dec.6. An important ad
dition to the foreign commerce of Phila
delphia is promises! by the establishment
of closer trade relations with th west
ern coast of South America. Twelve
steamships which were charter! during
the past month, are now on their wa7
to Chili, Peru and Kcuad r, with general
cargoes and more are beir.g chartered.
All of them are under contract to brir?
back silver ore and nitrate of soia. Th
British steamship Dart has Just been
chartered for six months to bring si.ver
ore from Antoof-jgasta. to either Perti
Amboy, N. J., or Philadelphia.
Kfforts are being made by New Tork
capitalists, it is said, to secure proiwrty
near or at Chester. Pa , for th erection
of a smelting plant, where the ore con
taining precious metal may be induced
and thus save the expense if pr.jc-ei:r.s
fo Perth Amboy. as most tX the vesse.s
load their outward cargoes at this p rt.
Recently large shipments of both siivtr
and lead ores have been comliig h-r
frf.m Mexico.
Cheap coal and superior water fac:1;
ties on the Ielaware river are the in
ducements held out by those interwted
in the proposed plant.
