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:

FECOXD MATE, name unknown.
TVILLIAM KELLY of Port Austin,
COOK MRS. MAT of Detroit.
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

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."
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.

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.

their hands but they were behird the

Mosquito Fleet About to Start For the
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
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

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.
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." .
"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

v Toi-lc to ck the siehts. the situa-
tions become irresistible. 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

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

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

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.

WUl Offer Rich Prize of $75,00O For
8heepshead Bay Events.
New Tork, Dec. 10. The richest turf
prize ever offered in this country will
probably be the Futurity of lio3. to be
run at the autumn meeting at Sheeps
head bay. The Coney Island Jockey
club has announced that the estimated
value of the race was $75,000. Ever since
the first running of the Futurity, in
ISsS, it has been the most valuable race
in a pecuniary sense on . the American
turf, and it has always attracted wide
spread Interest, not only on account of
its money valuation, but owing to bring
ing together some of the best neetfootrd
thoroughbreds in this country. It is for
two-year-olds, and the distance of the
race has always been 170 feet less than
six furlongs. The winner of the first
running of the race was Proctor Knott,
and the value of the struggle for the
honors that year was $40,Liai. In 1VS9, the
following year, the value of the race
was $54,550, and the winner was Chaos.

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.
