TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, THURSDAY EVENING. APRIL, 11,1901.
o REMARKABLE SUCCESS Of a New Catarrh Cure. A large and constantly increasing m i c rity cf the American people are n;arrh sufferers. This la not entirely tHe result of our changeable ciimate. but beer use modern investigation haa clear lv proven that many di.ases. known oy other names, are really catarrh. Form erly the name catarrh was applied al most exclusively to the common nasal catarrh, but the throat, stomach, liver, bladder, kidneys and intestines are sub ject to catarrhal diseas as well as the imsal passages. In fact, wherever there is mucous membrane there is a feeding ground for catarrh The usual remedies, inhalers, sprays, douches or powders, have been practi cally failures, as far as anything more than temporary relief wai concerned, because they simply dry up the mucous i creiions, without having the remotest effect upon the blood and liver, which tire the real sources of catarrhal dis eases. It has been known for some years thit itie radical cure of catarrh, could never come from local applications, but from an Internal remedy, ac ting- on the blood End expelling tha catarrhal poison from the system. A new internal preparation which has teen on the market only a short time, has met with remarkably success as a g-nuine. radical cure for catarrh. It may be found in any drug1 store.

They b ar the head and throat more effect ually and lastingly than any douche or inhaler that I have ever seen, and al-tho-.tgh they are what is called a paten: rr.edk-ine and sold by druggists, I d.i rot hes'tate to recommend them as I know them to be free from cocaine and opiates .and that even a little child may ,;.-.e them with entire safety.

The Herald says: What is believed to be one of the first cases decided by a jury in favor of the payment of a gambling debt, disputed on the ground of its illegality, has been dis posed of in the city court before Chief Juflere Kitzsimmons. The Jury gave a verdict in favor of John Bradley on two "I. O. U.'s" given to him by Henry Ivison, a well known broker of this city, one for $300 and the other for $7i0. Mr. Ivison, whiie in St. Augustine, Fia., on March 30.1S9J, paid a visit to a gambling house kept by Bradley and lost $1,000 at roulette. He gave his "I. O. U." but as he refused to pay Bradley placed the matter in the hands of his counsel, A. H. Hummel. Mr. Hummel put the 'I. O. U.""in evidence together with a letter written by Alexander La-mont-,counsel for Ivison, saying- that his client was desirous of settling the mat ter without the trouble of going to court if a short extension should be granted him. Ivison on the stand admitted making the notes, but insisted that they were given to pay for his losses at roulette. Mr. Hummmel asked on cross-examination if he would not have taken Brad ley's money had he been a winner and he confessed that he would. It took the jury but a. few minutes to find a verdict against Ivison. PRICE IS FIXE D. Iron Ore Will Sell Below Figures of Last Year. Cleveland,!?., April 11 The Iron Trade Review this week says: "At the base of the iron trade the in teresting: event of the week has been the establishment of J4.25 as the price for old range Bessemer ore running- 63 per cent In Iron and .045 In phosphorus. Tnis is $1.23 below last year's basis. The po sition of the United States steel corpora tion is understood to have been a neutral one and the merchant ore men made the dec ision which is generally regarded as conservative. A $4.50 base had son.! support from merchant interests but there were no advocates of a lower price than $4.25. Some considerable sa,les of nan-Bessemer ores, on which there is no agreement, have been made at $.90 to $:(, or $1 to $1.10 below last year's prices. Pier iron producers could make a good profit on the new ore basis, if they were guaranteed today's prices of iron; but the ore price has about 15 months to run while only a minority percentage of the pig iron output for the second half of the year has-been sold. The week hxs seen good activity in Bessemer and for.:e irons in the Pittsburg district, about Z.0, 000 tons of the former and 25.000 tons of the latter being sold. The present basis is $16, Valley furnace for Bessemer and $14 for forge, for delivery in the first haif of the year. 'Additional furnaces are getting- ready to blow in, and there is a prospect of a record breaking production in April and May. The conditions in the foundry iron trade have been in fair balance. Th .re is no buying- in excess o known or well estimated requirements, as ia 1S99, and the outlook is for sustained prices, but with no considerable advances. The feeling on both sides favors stability and the avoidance of excitement. There is some contracting for srood sized lots, with deliveries running through the second half of the year, but as yet this is not general. Agricultural implement concerns are considering the placing- of large requirements, and one contract for 50.000 tons of baxs and other finished material is being figured on in the Chi cago district. Chicago reports also in quiries for 50,000 tons of rails in the past week and the indications point to the largest tonnage for 1901 in many years." ' WILL IT SAVE HIM? D.B. Kofcfnson Improyiriff Under Treatment of Healer. Chicago, April 11. Friends of Daniel B. Robinson, formerly vice president of the Atckison system and later president of the St. Louis & Siui Francisco railroad, are rejoicing- over reports of the wonderful improvements in his condition. For more than a. yoar Mr. Robinson has been a very sick man, and for several months his condition has been regarded as hopeless. The leading physicians of Chi cago informed the family a few weeks ago that there was no possibility of his recovery, as his heart and other vital or gans were affected. About this time the attention of the fam ily was directed to -a certain magnetic healer. said to have come from Mexico, and who had been introduced to Chicago by Mrs. F. V. Feck, wife of the World's Fair commissioner, w ho discovered her in Paris during the exposition. The family called her in as a drowning man grasps at a straw. It seemed to be the only hope. The result of her treat ment is said to have been little short of miraculous. He is already much better His life has certainly been prolonged, and the healer now promises a complete re covery. It is expected that Mr. Kobinson will be taken to New York in a. private car, in order to continue under the heal er's treatment, as certain wealthy people in iSTew York are asking for her help. .1 BLUE IS FIUHTOG. Trying to Get Pension Commissioner ship Away From Peters. Endorsements for Colonel Richard Blue for pension commissioner are pouring into Washington in a flood, and the contest for the place, which is generally conceded to Kansas, and to Judge Peters, of Newton, Is becoming acrimonious. Some fear that it will result in the president washing hij hands of factionalism and giving the ap pointment to some other state. Senator Uurton is not enthusiastic over the nam ing of Peters and tacitly approves the eleventh hour boom thfst is given Blue. It is said by the Burton people that Peter's activity as a O. A. R. man is mt so pronounced as that of Colonel Blue, and consequently the latter haa more strength with the old soldiers. Jl'KINLEl IN THE CilOIiUS.

Kansas City, Mo., April 11. Edward King, an American, formerly a brake man on the Mexican Central railway has gone to the City of Mexico, for trial on April 13, having been on parole. Like S3 other Americans now in jail in the City of Mexico, King is the victim of the law that calls for the arrest of the entire crew of any train In case a Mexican is killed in a wreck. Since November J", last, he has been in the stockade. He obtained a parole and coining to the United States laid his case before St c retary Hay at Washington. Secretary Hay he says advised him to honor hio parole, go back and wait for his trial. King's case had already been postponed several times and he fears it will not come to trial on the date set. If he se cures no trial. Secretary Hay promised, he said, to take action in his behalf. "I am afraid they will treat me more severely than the others when I get back." said King.

COMES FROn BRAfN. Phosphates Found on the Skin and Thrown Out From Pores. We know that active brain work throws out the phosphate of potash, for this product is found on the skin after excessive . brain work, therefore, brain workers, in order to keep well, must have proper food containing phosphst: of potash to quickly and surely rebuild the used-up tissue. That one can obtain such food has been proven in thousands of cases among users of Grape-Nuts Food. This contains phosphate of potash in minute particles, jus-t as it is furnished by nature in the gi ains. This product makes from albumen tbe gray matter that builds the brain and ids the r.erve centers. In no way can this gray matter be made except by the action of phosphate of potash upon albumen, and this mir- 1 eral should be introduced to the body just as it comes from Nature's labora toiy, and not from the drug store. The system is more or less fastidious about taking up the needed elements, and. as might be suspected, it will favor the products of Mother Nature rather than the products of the drug shop, however valuable the last may be for certai-a uses. Lawyers, journalists, doctors, minis ters, business men and others, who earn their living by the use of the brain, are using Grape-Nuts Food. It is manufac tured for a reason and was originated by an expert. The regenerative value of the Food has been demonstrated beyonu question.

Chicago, April 11. Upon receiving news of the capture in New York of John Al bert Skoogr, who is pronounced by officials of the United States secret service one of the most expert counterfeiters. Captain Porter, of the United States secret service, located in this city, at once made arrange ments to have him returned to Chicago f-jr trial. Judfe Kohlsatt issued a beneu warrant for the prisoner and a copy of the indictment, which was voted several years ago, was mailed to the authorities m the east. The arivst was considered of so much importance that -a, cablegram was sent to the authorities in Sweden, who have been waiting to take possession of Skoog as soon as the United tSutes government got through with him. S-koosr w"hs arrested In this city on Jan uary 26. I.y7, for passing- a ?2) counterfeit bill. Government officers searched his house and secured a complete outtit for making the bogus hills. Besides they found eighty-five $20 bills -and over $3.OJ0 worth -of boguus Swedish kroner notes. Pending a hearing of his case before the federal grand jury Skoog was confined in the county jail at Joliet, while the Cook county jait was being reconstructed. Early in the morning of March Xts he made his escape with two other alleged counter fetters. Jumes Uoley and Jacob Johnson. The latter two sawed the window burs of the jail, while Skoog smothered the sounds by playing an accordion. Skoog is said to have re-engaged in counterfeiting the same bills since his escape. STAHL WOULDN'T ACT. Refused to Serve Call For Meeting of Old Council. There was no meeting of the city council last night as a quorum was not present. i , After the call had been issued by Couneilmen Warner and Snattinger yes terday afternoon City Clerk Squires call ed in the new city attorney and asked whether or not the call was legal. The city attorney did not think that it was and gave his opinion that Mr. Squires did not have to send the notices to the couneilmen. Mr. Squires thought he would be on the sate side so he made out the notices and telephoned Chief Stahl that he should serve them. Chief Stahl did not want, to do this so he asked for advice from the city attorney and was told that he did not have to seive the notices, so he did not do it. All of the old members knew of the meeting, however, as they had been in formed concerning it in the afternoon. The Hughes men were advised to stay away and they did so. Couneilmen Swendson and Roundtree stood across the street from the city building and seemed undetermined as to whether they should attend the meeting or go home. The members of the old council who were present were Warner, Mergan, Snattinger, Myers and Weber. Council men Nichols and Griley were also pres ent but they were there only as spec tators as the call was for the old coun cil. The city building was locked when the crowd began to gather shortly before 8 o'clock and none of the lights were turn ed on. It was the intention of the Hughes men to keep the building closed so that the meeting could not be held as :"they evidently feared some of their menmieht attend and thus make a quorum. Mi-. Younkin, the custodian of the building, appeared five minutes before S o'clock and opened the door. The lights were then turned on and the five couneilmen present waited until 13 minutes before 8 o'clock before they went away. J. S. Warner and M. Snattinger said they had issued the call in conformity with the order of the court. "We were ordered to meet and recount the tally sheets and were at the council chamber for that purpose." said Mr. Warner. "It is not our fault that there was not a quorum present. Those who were there can explain to the court tomorrow with out any trouble why they have not obey ed the mandamus." The Hughes heelers - were running around with a paper yesterday trying to get the couneilmen to appoint J. B. Lar imer, T. F. Garver and A. L. Redden their attorneys to appear before the court this afternoon. They succeeded in getting seven signatures, five of the old and two of the new counciimen. For some reason they are very anxious that the counciimen should stay away from the court. A messenger was sent to all the counciimen by the Hughes men yes terday evening that they did not have to attend the meeting last night and that they were not required to appear in court today.

Mr. Seton-Thompson Gives Topeka a Taste of His Personality. Mr. Ernest Seton-Thompson, who Is sorry he ever wrote his name "Seton Thompson," delivered two lectures in Topeka Wednesday, one at 4:15 in the afternoon and one in the evening. For the two lectures he received the sum of J350. But then Mr. Seton Is no common man. He has made the world familiar with the traits of wild animals and the things that were known by a few hundred are now the property of millions. Mr. Seton acquired his knowledge in the school of experience. He lived with, the animals and studied them and when he wrote it was in a delightfully simple manner of things he knew. Mr. Seton's lectures are really supple mentary to his stories and those who have been entranced with the adven tures of Molly oCttontail Leba and Bingo find an. added charm in the talks of the man who has perpetuated their memory. The pictures thrown on the screen are nearly all reproductions of his own drawing-s which are published in his books. There was one series from Land ssers famous deer pictures and they with the story of Mr. Seton's stag hunt in England furnished the only spot in the lecture where the audience felt that re ality had given way to romance. The Current Literature said of Mr. Seton: "The author known as Mr. Ernest j Seton-Thompson, whose stories of wild ' animals have gained him such wide spread popularity, is really Mr. Seton by name, the 'Thompson' having been as sumed under romantic circumstances by a progenitor. The author's earlier stories were signed Ernest Seton, though his present reputation is completely identi fied with the hyphenated surname. Mr. Seton-Thompson, as he will probabiy still be known, was born in the north of England. When he was eighteen he started for London to study art and natural history. He was the youngest student who ever got a life ticket to the British Museum. This was at first re fused him by the officials of the museum because of his youth, but ' he finally wheedled it out of them. In London he was hungry but happy, as he declrares, living in a dark hall bedroom, and spend ing only 80 in two years and a half "By the end of that time his friends thought he was dying with consumption, the tact being that he was only hungry. They sent him to Manitoba, where he besan to realize his dream of being a naturalist. In 18S3 he came to New York with $2.63 in his pocket. He lived on rolls and water from the Madison Square fountain. At last he found work at $5 a week, drawing lithographs. His first raise came through the opportunity to draw a raven for a cigar advertise ment. Mr. Seton-Thompson does not draw advertisements now. The popular author-naturalist is about 40 years old. hand lives in New York. He resembles Paderewski in appearance as much as it is possible for an Englishman to look like a fole except that his hair is dark." AFTERNOON LECTCRB. That Ernest Seton-Thompson can tell bear storins that are exciting enough for anyone, none that 'attended his matinee lecture in the afternoon at the Hign school assembly hall will deny. The greater portion of his time was tMken up with a story of his experiences with the bears in Yellowstone park. "Wyoming. And they were truly varied and exciting enough to inspire the hearts of the brave young hearers with a desire to go and do some of the things -he told about. Mr. Seton is very much opposed to hunting with guns and powder, but does a great deal iL camera hunting. He takes a yreat many snapshots -at random w-hiie he is out in the wild fastnesses of the mountains, but nothing other than the re production of some animal in some nat ural -attitude never before shown results from it. That he is also apt with the pencil and brush was shown by the num ber of original sketches shown by the aid of the stereopticon. Great numbei-s of bears lived near the hotel where he stopped and would come every day to th garbage pile in the re.ir of the hotel to pick out the bit of food and devour them with relish. His stories had most to do with the experiences of "Little Johnny." a dyspeptic little bear with a fondness of plum jam, well known to those who have read "An Autobiog raphy of a Grizzly."
