Physicians and grip ufferers alike art e greed that the after effects of the dis ease are more to K f c arod than the acute attack; you can never be sure that the iusfj9 kaa Wt the system complete ly. LaGrtppe naturally attacks the weak est organ and leaves it itlll weaker. Not only pneumonia, consumption, bronchitis and throat trouble follow the grip, but kidney, liver and stomach are troubles Just as liable to resuit, provided any cf these organs should happen te be in a weak conditio at the time of at tack. To g-et rid of the grip germ, to ret It entirely out of the system and blood, few remedies are so good and none saf'tr than Stuart's Catarrh Tablets; they ana ot a compound of powerful and dan gerous drugs, but a pleasant, palatable, convenient remedy In tablet form, com posed ef the wholesome antiseptic princi l.les of Eucalyptus bark, blood rtt and similar fte!Tr.icide remedies which are perfectly wholesome and harmless to the fcyntem, but death to the erms of grip, catarrii, consumption and diseases oi the throat and air passages.

In two weeks iny cough disappeared, my appetite re turned. I improved In flesh and color and no one would mw think that I lil ever had such a thing as the grip. My druggist told me he acid more of Ptuart's Catarrh Tablets, for the cure r-t grip, colds and catarrh, than any OLUer a,i,ni':ar aiedituiiea.

The following: special dispatch con cerning the Order' of Select Frienda is front Fort Scott: Some complications have arisen in the failure of the Select Friends lodge, the Bupians omcea of which were main tained in this city, and the holders of the $6,000,000 of insurance in the order are at variance as to what would be the wise policy to pursue. It is charged by the local lodge in this citv. or bv cer tain prominent members of it, that there has been a well-laid plan, for some weeks by the suiweme officers of the lodge to iransrer its membership to the Ameri can Crusaders, a new lodge, in which it naa just oeen learned the supreme offl cers of the Select Friends are the prin cipal supreme officers. The Ancient Order of Pyramids, rep resented by Judge Pfost, of Kansas City, is nere maiung a. fight for the member ship of the defunct lodge and the mem bers of the local lodge are unable to get together. The claim was openly made at a session, which was attended by the supreme officers of the three orders, that the supreme officers of the Select Friends were pecuniarily interested in the trans fer of the membership to the Crusaders, who offer to assume all the insurance and pay 50 per cent of the death claims the first year, 75 per cent, the second year and 90 per cent, thereafter. The supreme officers of the Select Friends claim their only object in be coming connected with the new lodge a couple' of months ago was to protect the Select Friends' insurance by arrang ing for its transfer. The local lodge, after a bitter fight and some severe ac cusations, refused to be delivered to the Crusaders. They will further consider the proposition.

The former Is su preme president and the latter supreme medical examiner. Doctor Linn; who has been supreme re corder of the Select Friends since its or ganization, holds the same salaried office with the Crusaders. Only about a month ago the McClintocks became members of the Select Friends. The transfer was then in view. CARNEGIE LIBRARIES.- A Few More Distributed on theEve of Sis Departure. New York, March 14.
