Chief Engineer Hedged While
Outfit Was Passing Topeka.
The proposed extension of the Bock
Island will be a reality in a few months,
notwithstanding the fact that officials
hem and haw every time they axe asked
about it.
Chief Engineer Dauchy was here a few
days ago. He said three different sur

et been decided upon. He. Eaid lie had
no doubt the extension would be built,

And while Mr. Dauchy was talking a
tig shipment of men, mules and mate
rial for building the road was passing

contract for a long stretch of road.
They are not there to dig snowballs,
but from their force appear to be going
about railroad grading in a business
like manner. Dirt flies in, a few days.
CoL L. F. Sheldon, Who Retires From
Union Pacific Jan. 1.
Col. Tj. F. Shelden,. who will retire aa
assistant superintendent of telegraph of
the Union Pacific on January 1, is a.
pioneer in the. field of railroad teleg
raphy. He was the first operator to
"work a key west of the Mississippi and
he established an office in Kansas City
when that city boasted by three stores.
During the civil war he had charge of
tne government telegraph lines on the
.Atlantic coast, and for his services was
I revetted lieutenant colonel. Later he
w as associated -with Lincoln, McCiellan,
ISurnsides and Banks in the manage
ment of the Illinois Central.
Colonel Shelden is now 68 years of age.
For the past eighteen years he has been
with the Oould system, and for many
years had headquarters in Sedalia in
charge of the telegraph work on the
western lines of the Missouri PaciFe.
During the time between the end of his
government service and his entrance in
the employ of the Could line Colonel
Shelden' was identified with a number
cf railroad and commercial enterprises.
Company in a Big Chicago Improve
ment Project to Cost $2,500,000.
Track elevation on a big scale along
the south branch of the river, from,
Eighteenth street to the Illinois and
Michigan canal, near Ashland avenue,
w ill be bekun early in the spring on
the lines of the Chicago & Alton, Atch
ison, Topeka & Santa Fe and the Chi
cago, Madison & Northern roads, says
the Chicago Record. The entire cost of
the enterprise, which !? to be conducted
jointly by a commission of the three
companies, will be about $2,500,000.
The work will require a period of
about two years. Contracts for the iron
and steel work for subways and bridges
along the route were let last week to
the American Bridge company, and early
next month bids will be opened for the
concrete snl masonry work.
The city council ordered the tracks
elevated In 1N91. After much delay the
roads decided to co-operate and recently
completed plans and specifications.
The plans include twenty bridges and
subways One of the bridges (that over
the river) is to be of the bascule type.
In constructing the subways under the
street crossings the failures of other
roads will he guarded against. Over the
steel beams will be laid watertight cre
osoted planking, making the subway
free from leaks, while over this is to
be spread ballast, which is intended to
deaden the rumble and roar of the
trains. '
Scalpers and Country Editors.
Tt is said that ticket scalpers have
turned their attention to editors of
small papers throughout the country,
and are soliciting editorial transporta
tion at a good price. As a result rail
roads have ordered conductors to scru

To Cure Every Form or Piles.
Tte. only sure way to cure every form
of piles, is to use a remedy like the Pyr
amid Pile Cure, which is applied directly
to the parts afEeeted. and its wonderful
healing effects are apparant from th?
first application because its medicinal
properties are rapidly absorbed right
where needed, by the delicate tissues
and sensitive membranes of the rectum.
The cure is natural and easy and almost
before the patient is aware of it, every
trace of piles has left him.
This is one reason why the Pyramid
Pilo Cure has been so uniformly success
es. It is in suppository form, applied at
night directly to the diseased parts,
w here it is most needed and not by the
round about way of the stomach nor the
har:-h. barbarous method of surgical op
eration. Direct applications to the seat of dis
ease is the only common sense cure, ajid
this is fully accomplished by the Pyr
amid, Pile Cure.
If the voluntary testimonv of thous
ands is worth anything then" no sufferer
should delay in giving this splendid rem
edy at least a trial as it costs but CO
cents at any drug store, and is guaran
teed absolutely safe and free from opi
ates or cocaine so commonly found in so
called pile cures.
N'early every druggist has some favor
ite pile cure on which he can make a
larger profit than he can on the Pyra
mid and often-times to substitute, but
when it ts remembered that the Pvramid
Pile Cure is the only remedy for piles
that has a national reputation and is
sold by every druggist in the Unitei
States and Canada, it means something:
it means that no remedy could do this
unless it possessed positive unmistaka
ble merit-
The Pyramid Pile Cure has cured
thousands of sufferers from the different
forms of the disease, whether itching,
bleeding or protruding piles.

English Lutheran Sunday School
Gives a Pleasant Entertainment.
Members of the English Lutheran Sun
day school, to the number of seventy. gave
a very pretty cantata entitled "Santa
Claus Charm'' last evening. The house
was crowded, with the aisles filled with
extra seals. The cantata consisted of
solos, choruses, a drill and song by six
teen boys in uniform with swords, a solo
by the Fairy Queen and a chorus by ten
winged fairies, a bedtime song-prayer, a
hoop drill and chorus of Sixteen girls,
sleighing songs and a genuine SantaClaus.
The platform was enlarged to make room
for the drills and both the boys and the
girls went through their intricate move
ments without a hitch of any kind. TTn
able to accommodate their friends in the
church, the school will repeat the can
tata on Friday evening of this week.

Slashes His Throat and Wrists With
a Knife.
Philadelphia, Dec. 26. "W. B. Irvine
Shaw, who had been filling the position
of L'nited States consul at Barranquilla,
Colombia, and who was recently ap
pointed consul general to Singapore,
committed suicide here today. He
ooened a femoral artery and slashed his
thoat and wrists "with a knife. Ill health
is supposed to have affected his mind.
For three years he had attended to
his duties as consul at Barranquilla
while the revolution shook the republic.
Fever and his duties undermined his
health, and he asked for and obtained
leave of absence early last August. His
dislike for the old post increased and he
sought another appointment, and was
successful, being named consul general
to Singapore. After receiving the ap
pointment he decided to return to Bar
ranquilla to settle his affairs. He left
the home of his sister in Germantown,
near here, where he had been staying,
two weeks ago, and sailed from New
York on the steamer Alta That was
the last heard of him until ha was found
dead today
Mr. Shaw was 38 years old and a na

He 5s survived by a widow and two
Congressman Lentz of Ohio Answers
Cleveland About Reorganization.
Columbus, O.; Dec. 26. Congressman
John J. Lenta, in a speech before the Jefferson-Jackson-Lincoln
league, answered
Grover Cleveland and others who urge a
reorganization of the Democratic party.
On this point Mr. Lentz said: "Mr.
Cleveland and others who are talking and
writing about getting back to the first
principles would do well If they would
specify what is the first of the first prin.
"We have heard enough of these glit
tering generalities. If these men want to
get back to first principles they should
go back to the days of Jefferson and
Jackson. Andrew Jackson never stabbed
a Democrat in the back.
"If we are to restore the first principles
it must be done by the plain people in our
rural districts and great cities, for it will
never be done by political bosses and po
litical brokers of our large cities, where
able lawyers are working in collusion
with political bosses to betray honest
people into traps of trusts."
The league, which numbers in its mem
bership Democrats from nearly every
county in the state, passed a resolution in
dorsing the sentiment expressed by Con
gressman Lentz. '
Attacked by Yaquis.
E! Paso, Dec. 26. Mexican troops in
Sonora, Mexico, were recently attacked
by a band of Taqui Indians. Four offi
cers and about SO men were killed out
right, and Col. Francisco Peinado, one
of the leading officers of the army, was
shot through the stomach and seriously
wounded. C. V. Light, of Guaymas, who
was there when the report was made
to General Torres, gave the news out
here. He says the soldiers were crossing
the country and were fired on from am
bush near Lamisa, about ;0 mies from
General Torres' headquarters. The se
vere press censorship has kept the news
from the public, but he says he had no
chance to learn exactly how many sol
diers were killed. Colonel Peinado, the
wounded officer, is one of the most
popular officers in the army. ,

"There are a. great many stories hap
pening every campaign which will not do
for publication," said a politician at the
Copeland the other night, "and almost
any man who has had any experience in
politics, c&n tell them to you until you
would go to- sleep. Of course a lot of
them will be from hearsay and a lot of
them will be the genuine artclie, with the
name blown in the bottle and the signa
ture on the strip holding down the cork,
but they are all good, as political stories
go. I wiJl tell you one that you may pub
lish without viola. tins any confidence and
without hurting anyone. I was in Strong
City eeveral years ao when the state
campaign was on. Every politician in the
state and a lot of other people know that
Strong City is the home of the Iri?h; it i3
Ireland In America. "When a man has
seen old Karney Carl In and Richard Mar
tin he doe3 not need to be told that a piece
of the Emerald Isle has broken away and
has drifted over land and sea until it
struck Chase county, Kansas. The in
cident that I have in mind is when a
great Republican rally was held in Strong
and the Irish, were out in force. The
opera house was crowded the night of
the rally, for a prominent man, one who
is now a. United States official, was to
address the meeting. The stage was
cn4vded with the local leaders and men
ornnfluence, who sat around in a semi
circle. In the front of the stage was a
table with a lamp and a pitcher of water
and a glass sitting upon it you know we
did not have gas in Strong City in those
days, and, praise goodness, we have no
gas there now, for I fear that a number
of the residents would blow out the gas.
The night I speak of ' the house was
crowded and the speaker was very much
interested in his talk. Things-were going
along all right and the audience was
worked up to the proper pitch when the
oil in the lamp gave out. Mat McDonald
was sitting on the stage with the other
prominent men and he at once arose, took
the glass which was sitting by the pitcher
and went to- the grocery store close by.
He filled the glass and carried it back to
the opera house, where ho filled the lamp
and then carefully set the glass by the
side of the pitcher. A few minutes after
this had been done the orator wanted a
drink of water, so he filled the glass from
the pitcher and took a liberal swallow.
He paused for a moment after gulping the
water and then spat. "Who in the blank
ety blanked blank put coal oil In that
lass?" he roared, as he looked at the
members of the cause sitting in the semi
circle behind him. No one answered him,
but he was unable to continue his address.
It required three pints of the best whisky
in Strong City to take the taste of the
coal oil out of the mouth of the orator.
I do not believe there is another place in
the United States where they attempted to
stop the mouth of a Republican orator by
throwing trust product directly in his
They "were talking of the effect made
upon the sales of books by the authors
of the books taking the lecture field, when
one of the members of the group said: "I
have heard several authors lecture or talk
or make political speeches and my opinion
is that, as a rule, they do not help the
sale of their books. I make one exception
to this, and that is Opie Read. After his
talks through Kansas this last campaign
his books sold like hot cakes; in fact, a
number of dealers were unable to keep up
with the demand. Every book that he
had written was demanded at the news
stands and a great many dealers put out
entire tables containing nothing but
works by Opie Read. It was just the re
verse when W. I. Howells lectured in
Kansas. At Emporia, where he lectured
before the State Normal, half the audi
ence went to sleep and there was no ruh
for his books the next day. Those who
wanted a narcotic still pinned their faith
to opium and morphine and Howells did
not cut in on the sales at the drug store
neither did he increase the sales of his
books in that town. Bill Nye was the
greatest frost in the world when it enme
to advancing the sales of his books. lie
never failed to injure his own business
by his lectures. James Whitcomb Riley
is another exception. His recitations of
his writings have never failed to increase
the sales, and whe"n he is billed for a
town the book sellers always lay in a good
supply of his works. Mark Twain did
not help increase the amount of his check
from his publishers and neither did R. J.
Burdette. They were both frosts from
the booksellers' standpoint. The Rev. C.
M. Sheldon is supposed to be creating a
demand for his books by his sermons in
the east, but I doubt very much if that is
the case. It is far more likely that the
people who go to hear him have read his
books and will be disappointed when they
hear him. That is the rule, and the ex
ceptions are very rare. It might be true
that a man who had published a book
which no one had ever heard of would
increase the sales, for in that case he
could not decrease them. This same rule
holds good in regard to books which have
been dramatized. "Quo Vadis" was
played here the other night and the book
sellers will tell you that there was not a
volume sold on account of the play being
presented. If a person sees the play before
reading the book, the book will seem in
sipid, and if the book has been read be
fore the play is attended the person who
sees the play will not recommend the
book." i
"There are no people on the face of the
earth who are as progressive as the Amer

demonstrated so many times that it is

ample which brought the fact forcibly to
my mind a few nights ago. I was on the

heard the conversation between two men
w,ho were sitting on the seat directly in
front of me. They were talking of the
abduction of the Cudahy boy. One of the
men said he had an idea, and proceeded
to explain it to the other. He had figured
it out that if would be a paying business
to insure the rich men against the ab
duction of their children. His scheme was
something like this: When a rich man
had a child the agent would approach him
and make the following proposition: For
J10 the child would be insured against
abduction for one year. If the child was
abducted the company would agree to re
fund the child or $-0,000. The company
was to have twenty detectives who would
hunt up the children after they had been
stolen and the company was to have ten
days to restore the stolen child. He
seemed to think it would be a success, as
it is well known that rich men think a
great deal of money, and that Mr. Cud
ahy has set the price at $25.Qu0 for a good,
well developed boy. If rich men could
make a sure thing of raising a boy by
paying $100 per year they would be sure to
drop into the scheme. There are at least
10,000 rich men in the country who have
children whom it would pav to abduct
and if 50 per cent of them could be per
suaded to go into the scheme the business
would be a success. He had a lot of de
tails which I cannot remember, but that
was the gist of his scheme and I don't
see why it would not work. If business
gets dull the organization could abduct
a few children on its own account, which
would make the rich men come in at a
rapid rate. There are all kinds of possi
bilities in the scheme."
A Drunken Indian Terrorizes
Town of Eufaula.
Muskogee, I. T., Dec. 26. John Tiger,
a full-blood Indian, a ferryman on the
Arkansas river, two miles south of
Eufaula, went to Eufaula with his wife
yesterday: afternoon and while Intoxi
cated met L. P. Roper and threatened
to kill him. Roper immediately struck
Tiger with a board, no words passing
between them. Tiger went to his buggy,
got a Winchester, and came back to
kill Roper, but failed to find him on his
return. Enraged he proceeded to shoot
every one he saw, shooting Jesse Beck
through the hips and killing him; shoot
ing and killing Dave Porter, a nephew
of C. F. Dorter, and a mover named
Johnson on his way to Missouri in a
covered wagon with, his family Bud
Taylor, i aged 18,. a boy, was shot
through the shoulder and is not ex
pected to live. Tiger immediately
jumped on a horse and tried to escape,
but was pursued. Tiger was chased
three miles, when he jumped off his
horse, got behind a tree and began
shooting. Deputy Marshal Johnson,
who returned the fire, struck Tiger in
the arm. The murderer surrendered
and was brought to Eufaula. Tiger's
arm will have to be amputated. Great
indignation prevails over the free sale
of liquors and firearms. J. Smith, who
lives ten. miles south of Checotah, be
came involved in a Quarrel with Mr.
Thompson over the shooting at Eufaula
and began shooting, Thompson being
mortally wounded.

tinually in the house. In a recent let
ter to Dr. Hartman he says:
State of Oregon,
Executive Department,
Salem, May 9, 1893.
The Pe-ru-na Medicine Co., Columbus, O.:
Dear Sirs I have had occasion to use
your Pe-ru-na medicine in my family
for colds, and it proved to be an excel
lent remedy. I have not had occasion
to use it for other ailments.
Yours very truly, W. M. Lord.
Any man who wishes perfect health
must be entirely free from catarrh. Ca
tarrh is well-nigh universal; almost
omnipresent. Pe-ru-na is the only abso
lute safeguard known. A cold is the be
ginning of catarrh. To prevent colds,

The spirit of generosity, and too fre
qusntly of extravaeance as well, seems
to prevail in every heart during the hol
idav season, and it leads many a careful
and provident housewife into prodigali
ties, that at other times would meet her
grave disapproval. In many homes,
temperance in eating is regarded with
the strictest conformity all through Ihu
year with this one notable exception.
Christmas viands must be, by custom's
approbation, as rich as the purse can
afford; and while good judgment may
govern the quantity of materials pur
chased for the feast, we often lose sight
of the fact that a good thing may fro a
long way and a surfeit of unaccustomed
riches is sure to bring retrirution in the
clogged appetite that has a fine distaste
for that which it has feasted upon.
The consequence of overindulgence
falls not alone upon the sinner whos
"repentance is the weight of undigested
meals ate yesterdav " But the house
mother finds the difficulties cf her call
ins? as purveyor increased a hundredfold,
and she must exercise her ingenuity
with redoubled vigor in order to tone up
the flaggiivS appetites and at the same
time use up the familiar fragments of
the Christmas feast the various odds
and ends which bring dismay to many

while the appetite of the family is in this
state of protest, she manipulate them in
such manner as will not suggest too
plainly their late indulgence in
"Too much turkey, too much pie.
Too much plum puddin';- that's why,"
as the small man said when asked why
he did not join the Christmas games.
The week between Christmas and New
