TOPEKA STATE JOTTHXAT MONDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 10, 1900.
3 vpigs . . yj iknd It's Origin.- The boT ingular combination is the trde-mark adopted by the Parle Medicine Company of St. Louis and is used in their adTertisemente ot Grove' Tasteless ChiU Tonic. To the ruai.y people who may be interested to know the origin of this odd trade-mark, the following i&formation is given: In the spring of 1893, the little two year old son of Mr. E. W. Grove was taken quite sick with malaria. Mr. Grove, knowing the virtue of his own medicine, commenced giving him Grove's Tasteless Chill Tonic He had taken this prescription only a few days until quite a favorable change was noted, in fact, he grew so rosy, healthy and plump, that Mrs. Grove in describing his condition to her husband, remarked " Grove's Tonic makes our baby as fat u pig". This led Mr. Grove to thinking that the expression "as fat as pigs" used in con nection with babies, was a very common one, and suggested to him the idea of combining a child's face with a pig's body, with wording as above, " Grove's Tonio makes children as fat as pigs". It is an attractive trade-mark, and the remedy it represents Grove's Tonio is regarded by the public as being the very best prescription for Malaria, Chills and Fever. The record of the Paris Medicine Company shows that Nine Thousand gross Jfinety car loads of Grove's Tonic have been sold this year from Jan. 1st, 1900, and as " orders are truly a good index of a medicine's worth " no one can doubt the virtue of Grove's Tonic Druggist ail sell Grove's Tonio on a no cure, no pay basis, for fifty cents a bottle.

Sight Persons Drowned in a T.n V Erie Disaster. Erie, Pa Dec. 10. In one of the most bitter gales that ever swept Lake Erie, the iron ore barger Foster, in taw of the Iron Duke, went to the bot tom at 4 o'clock Sunday- morning, ten miles off Erie, and eight persons were drowned, as follows: CAPTAIN JOHN BRIDGE of Cleve land. FIRST MATE, name unknown. FECOXD MATE, name unknown. SEAMAN ROBERT WOOD AND TVILLIAM KELLY of Port Austin, Mich. COOK MRS. MAT of Detroit. TWO UNKNOWN DECK HANDS. The Foster was one of the f,eet of James Corrigan of Cleveland, and for two months had been running from Du luth to Erie witn iron ore. Her cargo consisted of 1.500 tons of iron ore. . Captain Ashley of the Iron Duke made Erie in safety. In an interview he said: "The Fester was in tow, about 5'0 feet astern. I was up all night and there were three men on watch with me. The seas were rolling tremendously from the northwest and the gale carri-d with it a blinding snow storm. We made the harbor light all right. TVnen ALL RIGHT IN BISCUITS But a Poor Medicine. Common soda is all right in its place, and indispensibie in the kitchen and for cooking and washing purposes, but soda was never intended for medicine, and people who use It as such will some day regret it. The common use of soda to relieve heartburn and sour stomach is a habit which thousands of people practice, al most daily, and one which .is fraught with danger; soda gives only temporary relief and In the end the stomach trouble gets worse and worse. The soda acts as a mechanical Irri tant to the walls of the stomach and bowels and cases are on record where it accumulates in the intestines, caus ing death by inflammation or peri tonitis. Dr. Harlandson recommends as the BA.est and surest cure for sour stomach faci.t dyspepsia) the dai'.v use after meals of an excellent preparation, sold by druggists under the name of Stuart's IMspPsia Tablets. These tablets are large 20 gram lounges, pleasant to the taste and containing the natural per- toies and digestive elements necessarv i?o,; A;-"orAorl and all weak stomachs lark. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets used reg ularly after meals digest the foov! promptly and thoroughly before it has time to ferment, sour and poison the blood and nervous svstm Dr. Wuerth states that' he invariablv se and recommends Stuart's DW sia Tablets in all forms of stomach d- rangement and finds them a certain fU" not cr.iy for sour stomach but bv causing prompt digestion of food ty create a healthy appetite, increase fih and strengthen the action of the heart and liver. They are not a cathartic and contain no violent drug but are intended oniy for stomach diseases and faulty diges tion, and generally acknowledged to be the most reliable cure for anv stomach trouble except cancer of the stomach Stuart's Dyspepsia. Tablets now enjov an international reputation and popu larity and are sold by druggists every where in the United States," Canada and Great Britain. we turned for the harbor a sea much heavier than any other experienced struck us. I ran to the stem. Just as I got there the Foster plunged into an awful sea and dove down nose first. There was not a cry from a soul of the crew of eight she carried. Just as she pitched down I saw a man on her fore castle with a lantern. The tow line part ed when she went down. The storm was so heavy that I could not put about to hunt for anyone. There would not have been a particle of use anyhow, because the seas were so tremendous that no one could have lived a minute, even if the water had not been icy cold. Had there been a cry for help I would have turned around and risked my ship, but it was no use. I had all I could do to make port in safety." EMMA GOLDMAN AGRT. Anarchist Leader Claims Paris Police Suppressed the Propaganda. New Tork. Dec. 10. The Times says: Emma Goldman, who has been confer ring with anarchist groups in England and France, has returned to this coun try. She made a hurried tour of the various anarchist headquarters In this city last night. She says that the anarchists from va rious countries had arranged to hold an international anarchist congress in Paris, but just as it was about to con vene the police officials swooped down, broke up the meeting and drove tha leaders out of the city. It was an outrage, she declared, and showed that even the socialist govern ment was under the domination of the rich. In spite of the Parisian authori ties, however, she said, a secret congTess was held and arrangements made for the propaganda. Miss Goldman was angry also at the apathy of the people in England re garding the spread of the propaganda. They acted, she said, as if a social rev olution was never heard of.

ITe will return to "Washington by way of Los Angeles and New Orleans BETTS THE WINNER. Successor to II. C. SaHord a Barton Man. J. B. Betts, councilman, defeated M. C. Holman, president of the Commercial club, for the nomination for representa tive in the Thirty-eighth district to fill the vacancy caused by the death of H. C. Safford. The primaries -were held from 2 until 7 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The primaries were concluded without trou ble of any kind. Mr. Holman was de feated by a majority of 118. The result of the primaries was con siderable of a surprise as Mr. Holman seemed to be favorite. However, Judge Hazen, Aaron Jetmore and the county administration, aided by some of the representatives of the city government, took a lively interest and made much personal effort among the voters during the afternoon. This was due to the fact that the sup port of the jointists was being thrown to Mr. Betts and the friends of this element contributed their influence. The church people of the Second ward were aligned with the Holman forces, but only in word. The principal repre sentation from this element of the pop ulation staid at home. Mr. Betts carried Mr. Holman's pre cinct in the First ward by 30. Mr. Betts carried his own precinct in the same ward by 43. The vote cast at the primaries, follows: Holman. Betts. First ward, east precinct.. .113 136 First ward, west precinct. .207 237 Second ward, east precinct. 122 110 Second ward, west precinct. 196 257 Oakland 93 79 Tecumseh 12 22 Total 743 861 The county committee held a special meeting Saturday night and canvassed the returns, declaring Mr. Betts nom inated, and filing with the county clerk the certificate of nomination. The Populists and Democrats in an effort to effect fusion in this district had the customary row and the plan failed. The Populists nominated Frank Collins, a North Topeka commission merchant. The Democrats held a meet ing to take action on the Populist nom ination but some one started the rumor that Collins is a Prohibitionist. This was too much for the Bourbons. They quarreled for a while and when the question of a nomination was ready for disposition Henry Steele arose solemnly and said: "Since the Republicans and the Popu lists have nominated candidates with out consulting us," the emphasis on the last word. "I move that we adjourn without action." This upset the dignity ef the meet ing for a moment but when the Demo crats recovered their self-possession the motion was adopted and Collins and Betts are the opposing candidates, the Populist candidate going fh without Democratic approbation. This primary election is probably the first that the Curtis influence has been defeated in Shawnee county. Mr. Hol man was a candidate at the suggestion of Curtis. Mr. Betts was a candidate pledged to J. R. Burton. While this was denied by some of the friends of Betts. Mr. Burton himself, Dave Mulvane, Frank Grimes and John Dudlev, took a hand in the primaries. Saturday. The outsiders did not show their hands but they were behird the scenes giving directions and making suggestions. A PHILIPPINE PATROL. Mosquito Fleet About to Start For the Orient. New Tork. Dec. 10. Five little cockle shells of the naw are to travel more than 13 ''mO miles to the Philippines. The flag ship of this mosquito rieet will be the gunboat Annapolis, and her consorts will be the gunboats Vicksburg. the converted yacht Frolic and the tunboats Wompatuck and Fiscataqua. Thev are to be sent in response to the request of Rear Admiral Remey for small vessels to do patrol duty in the Philip pines. Thev will be examined this week bv a board of inspection, and if the con dition is satisfactory orders to sail will be issued at once. Commander Karl Rohrer will be the senior offlcer. He and his ship are at Hampton Roads, which is the rendezvous, and the other vessels will join the Annap olis in a week. The cruise will be one of the most interesting in the history of the naval service. Vessels of the size of the Wompatuck. the Fiscataqua and the Frolic have never made so long a journey. The Annapolis and the Vicksburg are of 1 VO tons displacement. They use sail as well as steam. The Fiscataqua. formerly the TV. H. Brown, is aa ocean-going tug of fi3l tons, for which the government paid .'IM.OoO at the outbreak of the recent war. She carries a battery of six rapid-fire guns. The Wompatuck is also an ocean-going tug. of 462 tons, and was known as the Atlas before the government paid J'jo.'X'O for her In 1S?8. She carries two rapid-fire guns, and made a name for herself dur ing the war by her work in the cable cut ting expeditions off Santiago and Guan tanamo. The Frolic Is a craft of 607 tons, and was formerlv the pleasure yacht Comanche, owned bv H. M. Hanna. brother of Sen ator Hanna. When the government bought her she was in Lake Erie and she was brought down and fitted with a battery of four rapid-fire guns. With the exception of Wompatuck. these vessels are at the rendezvous or on their way there. The Wompatuck was to have (A V &! ' V ''V Robert Harrison, son of Ex-Mayor T. "W. Harrison, who was killed in tie football disaster at San Francisco on Thanksgiving Say. sailed yesterday from the Brooklyn naw yard, but it was 'discovered that her rig ging needed slight repairs, which will be made this morning. Lieutenant Comman der F. H. Sherman, who is to command her, will probably take her to sea this af ternoon. Lieutenant Commander Sher man and Ensign Louis Shane will be the only officers on board the Wompatuck and it will mean twelve hours work a day for each of them while the craft Is at sea. The limited coal capacity of these ves sels presented a difficulty, but this was covered by the plan of taking the south ern route, where frequent stops for coal could b - Ze. The itinerary marked out is from i..jjto' Roads to the Bermudas, to San Juan, Puerto Rico; to Barbadoes, then across the Atlantic to the Azores, to Gibraltar, and then through the Medi terranean, stopping at small ports along the European coast, through the Suez canal and to Maniia. There Commander Rohrer will report to Admiral Remey. It is understood that the gunboat To peka. which is now at Naples, will join the mosquito fleet in the Mediterranean. FACED DEATH AND DUTY. Section Hand Flagged Train Until It Hit Him. That Mike McLane, a section hand. Is alive today is considered remarkable af ter one hears the story the story of an accident; of a man who did his duty, even though death stared him in the face. A St. Louis traveling man tells the story: "It was on the fast mail train on the Santa Fe. It was just before dusk one recent Saturday afternoon, and we were hitting a pretty fast clip. When we had gotten within about 30 miles of Kansas City a man was sighted on the track about 300 yards ahead. He was on the wrong side and the engineer didn't see him. The train got nearer and nearer and the man waved the red flag in a frantic manner. The fireman espied him and yelled to the engineer to stop the train. The man with his flag stood still in the center of the track. The locomo tive was reversed, but it was impossible to make the stop without traversing 10 yards at least. Everyone expected the man to get off the track, but he didn't. He stayed there until the engine struck him and he was thrown in the air about 50 feet. The conductor alighted from the train and picked the poor fellow up. He wasn't dead; he didn't seem serious ly injured, even. " 'What's the matter?' was the con ductor's first question. "The Irishman assumed a sitting pos ture, rubbed his bruises and made ex planations. He told the trainmen that there was a gang ef 100 Italians working on the track a mile below. The section boss, so he said, had sent him on ahead to give tha fast mail a signal to go slow, and that's what he was doing. " 'But why in the name oif heaven didn't you get off the track?' asked ona of the trainmen. " 'He told me to stay on the track and stop the train,' replied the Irishman. 'I had to do my duty.' "The Irishman was put on the fast maii and taken to the next station where he was given medical assistance! One of his arms was fractured, and h was badly bruised. "The engineer and" fireman thought the man would be in stantly killed, and his escape after standing boldly in front of the fast m?il and being thrown 50 feet in the air by the force of the collision is considered miraculous by them .and everyone else who saw it." . COMING DRAMATIC EVENTS. "A Young Wife," J. K. Tillotson's comedy drama, will be the attraction here this evening, with Ethelyn Palmer, of Topeka, in the title role. A promi nent paper recently said: "In this comedy drama there is enough fun of a clean, wholesome sort, with very little hint of horse-play, to cause considerable laughter, enough pathos to touch tender sentiments, and enough of the terrible tragic side of life to cause shivers to run down the spinal column From start to finish there is a vim and go to the acting that kept the house enthused. The plot is laid in the two extremes of New York life, the opening and closing scenes being in a beautiful suburban residence and the intermediate in the slums of New York, the den on Baxter street. Judson Douglas, the wealthy New Yorker, had one son, a dis solute person, whom it became neces sary to disown, and a young daughter. Needing an heir, Mr. Douglas adopts his nephew, Clarence, who naturally be comes an object of dislike to the disin herited son. The son, known as Charles Clemens, became associate and confed erate of a gang of desperate thieves and uuuscuTOKers ana is recognized as the captain of the band in Baxter street. "The adopted son Clarence marries a young and pretty girl of whose parent age he knows nothing, but the play de velops that she too has been, in early life, an inmate cf the infamous den, but is as unscathed as Oliver Twist was after his sojourn at Fagin's. She runs away and is adopted by well-to-do peo ple, and after a lapse of ten years mar ries Clarence Douglas, little suspecting that this is to bring her again in con tact with her old life through Charles Clemens, who being at his father's home recognizes in the young bride the child of the ucn. The other characters are a detective, several servants, and the burglars belonging to the gang. With these elements it is small wonder that Mr. J. K. Tillotscn has evolved an ex- -iiui ij-.ct-ji hiai. uviu uiiauaicu in terest, and when to these he adds the fresh Vermont countryman down in uieYiYaYsijYii 1 &$Jf&. - iiimm mii liTi These Game Boards have Rales tor 50 Games inclndin CaOKINOLE and ail tha CARROM CAMCS Two P 519 - 1 -f 1 t t v I 1 v r k 11 V f V i u MISSOURI PACIFIC LINES FROM KANSAS CITY.

That the au dience was in sympathy with the actors and thoroughly enjoyed the presenta tion was evidenced by the rounds of hearty applause, and the five curtain calls at the close of the second act were a safety valve allowing the excess of excitement to escape. The play will probably be greeted with large audi ences during its short run here." Mr. Frank Tannehill, who is at the head of the company, has been seen here with "Why Smith Left Home." Al H. Wilson, in his new play. "The Watch on the Rhine." under the man agement of Messrs. Chas. H. Tale and Sidney R. Ellis, of "Twelve Tempta tions" and "Evil Eye" fame, will make his first bow as a star at the Crawford Tuesday night. Mr. Wilson will in this piece have ample opportunity to show his versatility as a comedian and his abilitv as a sincer, for in this play he will liav a number of new, pretty, bright and catchy songs that will not only touch the heart but the sentiment of every mother, lover and sweetheart that mav witness Its presentation. Vsssrs. Tale and Ellis have staged "The Watch on the Rhine" in a sumptuous manner. They have also surrounded this voung man with a cast of merit. The effects, both electrical and me chanical, we are told, will be something new to the stage. Taking alt in all, an evening of intense interest and enjoy ment may be anticipated by all lovers of the good and pure in dramatic art. REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS. Chas. F.

A fe male SvengE.Ii, who by weird incanta tions and stranire calisthenic exercises compels young girls to do her will, even to robbing themselves of all th.ir fine clothes, is causing much ejeritemtnt here. The woman is a gypsy, who lives in a tent at the outskirts of the city. According to the story toll by the girls, who have given away all of their costly clothing and performed menial tasks for the woman, they were first ap proached by her several weeks ago with the pretense that she had something to sell. Later she threw a spell over them, at the same time commanding them to do things which they in their ordinary senses would not do for the world. Tes terdav the gypsy made such outrage ous demands that after the girls had complied they became frightened and told the police, who are now searching for the woman. TO FEED 25,000 POOR.
