TOPEKA STATE JOUmSTAr., WEDNESDAY EVENIISTG. MAT 8, 1901.
Some time ago there was a notable automobile procession in the city of Buf falo, N. Y. It was notable for its size, and also for the fact that it was entirely com posed of automobile wagons (like that in the cut above), built to distribute the advertising literature of the World's Dispensary Medical Association, propri etors and manufacturers of Dr. Pierce's medicines. In many a town and village Dr. Pierce's automobile has been the pioneer horseless vehicle. These wagons, eeut to every important section ot the country, are doing more than merely advertise Dr. Pierce's Remedies they are pioneers of progress, heralds of the automobile age. And this is in keeping with the record trade by Dr. Pierce and his famous pre parations, which have always kept in the front on their merits. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is still the leading medicine for disorders and dis eases of the stomach and digestive and nutritive systems, for the purifying of the blood and healing of weak lungs. Women place Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription in the front of all put-up medicines specially designed for women's use. The wide benefits this medicine has brought to women have been well summed up in the words " makes weak women strong and sick women well." The reputation of Dr. Pierce's Pleas ant Pellets as a safe and effective laxa tive for family use is international. It may be asserted without fear of con tradiction that no other firm or company engaged in the vending of put-up medi cines can rank with the World's Dispen sary Medical Association, either in the opinion of the medical profession or of the intelligent public. The Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, which is connected with the "World's Dispen sary," is alone sufficient to prove this supremacy. Here is a great modern hospital, always filled with patients, where every day successful operations are performed on men and women whose diseases demand the aid of surgery. No hospital in Buffalo is better equipped, with respect to its modern appliances, or the surgical ability of its staff. Dr. R. V. Tierce, the cb,ief consulting physician of this great institution, has associated with himself nearly a score of physicians, each man being a picked man, chosen for his ability in the treatment and cure of some special form of disease. The offer that Dr. Pierce makes to inen and women suffering with chronic diseases of a free consultation by letter, is really without a parallel. It places without cost or charge the entire re sources of a great medical institute at the service of the sick. Such an offer 13 not for one moment to be confounded with those offers of " free medical advice" which are made by people who are not physicians, cannot and do not practice medicine, and are only saved from pro secution by artfully wording their adver tisements so that they give the impres sion that they are physicians without making the claim to be licensed. Those who write to Dr. Pierce, chief consulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., may do so with the assurance that they will receive not only the advice of a competent physician, but the advice of a physician whose wide experience in the treatment and cure of disease, and whose sympathy with human suffering leads him to take a deep, personal inter est in all those who seek his help and that of his associate staff of specialists. Dr. Pierce's Medical Adviser (in paper covers), containing 1008 large pages, is sent free on receipt of 21 one -cent stamps, or 31 cents for the cloth-bound volume, to pay expense of mailing only.

Ban astar broke well, but Odom let his set tle Into his stride, and he ran In fourth place for half a mile. Then Odom shook him up and he moved up to Unmasked and King Pepper, who were fighting for the lead. He caught them at the last furlong pole and for a sixteenth the three ran head and head; then Banastar gradually drew away and won.

Pete received a body blow which sent him to his knws. While he was down Shar key struck him on the head, and the referee gave the fight to Everett.

John Peters was withdrawn by the Schorrs from the Wenonah stakes at Churchill downs, leaving Eddie Busch alone to carry their colors. He was made an even money favorite, and lots of money was put upon .his chances. There was the hottest sort of a tip out on Coldstream, a colt belonging to F. D. "Van Meter. It was his first time out. but he was heavily played. The rest of the public's money was about evenly divided among the other candidates. They were a frac tious lot at the post, and it took Starter Brown twenty minutes to get them off in line. Coldstream ran his race at the post, running clear to the turn in al most every break. They were finally sent away to a fair start, with Hans Wagner in front. At the turn Cold stream overtook him, and the pair raced together until well into the stretch, where Coldstream drew away.

Senator Is Willing to Go Far to Defeat Tammany. New York, May 8. There has been some quiet taalk among leaders of the anti-Tammany Democrats of H. H. Vreeland, the Metropolitan Street rail way man, as a candidate for mayor next fall. The Piatt men are said to have taken kindly to it. Mr. Vreeland'a friends took no stock in the talk of him for mayor. They said the chances were he had never heard of it and would laugh at it. He is a Democrat. Up to date John D. Crimmins Is the most prominently mentioned candidate for mayor. Mr. Crimmins has received many pledges of support from Republi cans, democrats and independents. He is theonly Democratic possibility whohas been indorsed by Senator Piatt. Senator Piatt is devoting much atten tion to the situation. In the last few days he has talked over the outlook with his lieutenants and has told them that they must throw no obstacle in the way of a complete union of all the in dependent forces with the Republicans. "If no alliance is formed," said he, "the blame must not be laid on us. Let it be the fault of the others. Our at titude is that we want to join hands with every organization that ia in the field to down Tammany. We want to show a very liberal spirit, even to the ex tent of accepting a Democrat as our can didate if necessary. Hutchinson and Return $4.65 Via the Santa Fe Route.

Unknown Assailant Strikes Miss Bonnie Down. THROWS HER IN WELL. Cold Water Revives and Young Lady Crawls Out. Found Unconscious and Dies Last Evening. Describes the Yillain and 0 Ul cers Are After Him Leavenworth, Kas., May 8. The town of Lansing and the surrounding coun try is in a state of intense excitement over an assault committed upon Miss Ethel Bonnie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Bonnie, residents of that town. The assault was committed by an un known white man, who accomplished his purpose after striking the girl on the head with some blunt instrument, rendering her unconscious. Tuesday morning Miss Bonnie left home for the bluffs along the Missouri river to gather mushroams. While stooping down she was suddenly seized from behind, but managed to break away from her assailant and started to run. He overtook her and struck her on the .head, felling her to the ground. Believing the girl to be dead the tramp dragged her body to a well nearby and threw her in. The well contained twelve feet of water, and Miss Bonnie sank to the bottom, but rose again. The cold shook had the effect of reviving her to such an extent that she realized her peril and made an effort to climb out She finaly reached the top, but was still in a dazed condition and remained sit ting on the edge of the well. Not arriving home for dinner, her parents became alarmed and began searching for her, and after some time she was found, still sitting on the edge of the well. She was then In a critical condition, but was conveyed home, and managed to tell the story of the assault. The girl told her father during a mo ment of consciousness that in attempt ing to get out of the well she fell back twice. When found she was in a semi conscious condition. , i Miss Bonnie described her assailant as a man of medium height, rather stout, wearing a full beard and dark clothes. A man answering this descrip tion was seen by section hands on the Kansas City Northwestern railroad about 5:30 o'clock In the evening, going toward Wallula. Wallula is five miles south of Lansing. Sheriff Everhardy, who was notified, wired to the authori ties at Wallula to look out for the man. Word soon spread throughout the country, and citizens began gathering and started out to look for the assailant. Word was also sent to the city and the sheriff and several deputies started for the scene. Feeling is so Intense that should the man be caught he will be probably lynched. At a late hour last evening Miss Bonnie died as the result of her injuries. Her father, G. W. Bonnie, is an old enploye of the Kan sas state penitentiary, and has the sym pathy of all the prison officials. JOINTISTS RESENTFUL. Kansas City, Kan., Lawyer Assaulted and Badly Beaten. Kansas City, Kan., May 8. Lawrence J. Mason, a young attorney, was visited in his office by a man who said he wished to employ a lawyer to bring an action against the Metropolitan Street Railway company for damages. The visitor said his sister was hurt by a car and he in vited the lawyer to go to his home to in quire into the facts. Mr. Mason consent ed to the agreement, and the two men started out. When they reached an alley the man stopped and said: "This is what I wanted you for." With that he struck Mr. Mason a heavy blow on the nose, knocking him down. Two other men then ran up and joined in the assault, beating and kicking the lawyer, When Mr. Mason appeared at police headquarters his nose was broken and blood was flowing from many bruises. Mr. Mason is associated in several injunction suits against liquor sellers now pending in the courts in Kansas City. Kan. This is the second assault of the kind here. Dr. J. C. Mclaughlin was called from his home at night by a man who said his wife was sick. When he reached the sidewalk the man accused him of being connected with the prosecution of jointkeepers, and, though the doctor denied it, he was felled by a heavy blow in the face. A COMPLICATED CASE. Missing Sign Boards Cause Suit For $10,065.50 at Arkansas City. Arkansas City, May 8. Some time ago J. S. Younkin put out several sign boards on the roads leading to this city. They were valued at $8 per sign. He had one placed ne.r the Arkansas river bridge on West Chestnut avenue, and it disap peared. Younkin went before Judge Krea mer and swore out a warrant charging G. W. Baccastow with stealing the sign. Baccastow was arrested and had a hear ing before a Jury in Judge Kreamer's court. The jury returned a verdict of acquittal and the defendant was dis charged. Now Baccastow seeks to retaliate and filed a suit for damages in the district court. In his petition he alleges malicious prosecution and asks that Younkin be forced to pay him damages to the amount of $10,05.50. MRS. NATION WEAIHT. Pounces Upon the Turnkey and Beats Him Severely.

This constant noise bothered the other prisoners and they requested the turnkey to keep her quiet. Mice. Cockroaches. Water Bus.

At the same time she called loudly to be set free. Two of the other prisoners heard the calls of the turn key for assistance, and the three finally succeeded in forcing Mrs. Nation back into her cell. It has been learned upon good author ity that the local W. C. T. U. people are quietly making efforts to have Mrs. Na tion declared insane. The other women who had been in carcerated with Mrs. Nation wearied of their stay In jail, and today readily ac cepted bail when it was tendered. The charges against Mrs Nation and her col leagues were to have been assigned to day for hearing, but the attorney for the defense, asked that the assignment of cases be postponed. Judge Ray, for the defense, stated that he had been retain ed by the three women associated with Mrs. Nation, but remarked that he did not know what the latter had in mind. Judge Dale said he had received letters from the women in jail, in which it was stated that Mrs. Nation would plead her own case and would also represent Mrs. Evans and Mrs. Wilhoit. "Mrs. Nation has not been admitted to the bar," said Judge Dale, "and is not qualified to defend the other women. They should have an attorney." He also said that if Mrs. Nation defended herself he would grant the other women a sepa rate trials. The cases have not been as signed. SALINA WANTS SALOONS. Commercial Club Will Ask Council to License the Joints. Salina, May 8. The Sallna Commer cial club, at a meeting last night, decid ed on plana for securing several new institutions for Salina, including a wholesale hardware house and a whole sale drug house. The club also took up the matter of the city's present finances and the present liquor traffic termed "boot-legging." The two questions were discussed at length, and it was decided that it be expressed to the city council at it3 next regular meeting that the sentiment of the commercial club is for high license. Six saloons, with a rnonth ly fine of $100 each, were favored. The present system of bootlegging it was held cannot be stopped, and the traffic as it is at present leads to dives and dens. Open saloons seem to be the only remedy, and the proposition meets with the approval of the citizens and business men in general. Since the sa loons closed here Salina has been de prived of $70 a month in fines, and li quor has been sold just the same. A temperance mayor was elected at the recent city election, and it is not known what action the council will take in the matter. H'PHEHSON GRADUATES. A Class of Seven Will Pass TJp on May 9.

Old Miller,of DeKalb,Refuses to Have Decaying Mill Torn Sown. Atchison, May 8. The Globe says: Philip Gerner, father of Mrs. Melvin Brown, of Branchton, who was reported to have died at his home at DeKalb re cently as a result of a fail from a. tree, is still alive, and will probably recover. Mr. Gerner, who is 81 years of age, is a very eccentric man. He has lived at De Kalb for over 50 years. In early days, Mr. Gerner built a mill near DeKalb, and put in machinery which at that time was the wonder of that section. Men went there from far and wide to see the Gerner mill. It was ru.i by a water wheel, and it made DeKalb a lively town. With the advent of steam and modern improved milling machine ry, the Gerner mill lost its prestige. The old miller finally shut down his mill, but would not suffer to have the machinery sold, or the mill disturbed in any way. He had made a competence by its faith- "These biscuit are stale," said the husband. "I bought that bag of biscuit day before yesterday," said his wife.
