3 'RAILROAD, NEWS. Another $1,000 For the Coffey -Tille T. M. C. A. Miss Gould Helps a Splendid Railroad Organization. BUILDING IS READY. Total Cost Will Be in Neighbor hood of SI 3,500. Fnrnish Bath and Lodging For Ten Cents. Coffeyville, Kan., Nov. 20. News has Just been received that Miss Helen Gould of New York has given another $i,000 to the new railroad T. M. C. A. building here, which is to be opened about the middle of December. This, In addition to her other gifts, makes Miss Gould's total donations to the building about $3,000. Miss Gould fur nished the library and reading rooms, and donates the library books. She will have two professional decorators from New York decorate the interior of these two rooms. She has also given a $1.5 music box and a 200 phonograph to the building. . . , The building is a two-story brick, erected on a lot at Thirteenth and W il low streets just northwest of the -Mis-sourl Pacific depot. It .cost about $13,500. On the first floor are the secretary s public and private offices, the library, reading room, reception hall, game . a , ullai. Tho hnalinff rooms itiiu uiniig " j - J : ' alley will not be excelled anywhere in RAILROAD Y. M. C A. the west. In the game room will be thirty games of twenty different kinds generously donated by Selchow & Richter of New York. On the second floor are the bath rooms, seven sleeping rooms with two beds in each room and the lecture or class room in which the meetings of the railroad men and the religious services will be held. The sleeping rooms will be the means of saving money for the railroad men. They can get rooms and beds for ten cents per night, including baths. This, of course, is conditioned upon their being members of the as sociation, which costs $5 per year. The building will be a sort of home for out-of-town railroaders. They can spend all their time except during meals in the building. On the south side is a long wide veranda which will be equip ped with hammocks and easy chairs. The library will be a circulating one. The railroad company carries the books free as railroad mail anywhere along the line. Thus a railroader at Conway Springs can take out a membership and have books sent him, returning them when through with them. The building will be open day and night. It will be in charge of Secretary I'"". L. Geer, an experienced man in that work who comes most highly recom mended from Trenton, N. J. Beside Mr. Geer there will be an assistant secre tary, a janitor and a man to take charge of the bowling alley. Member ship fee will oe $5 per year and citizens as well as railroaders can become mem bers. This fee admits the member to the full privileges of the building in cluding the library, reading room, bowl ing alley and baths, for none of which is there extra charges. Five dollars from each of the 500 members that the association confidently expects to have In a few months, does not nearly pay the cost of maintenance. Statistics of the association show that it costs about THE OLD WAY Of Treating Stomach Trouble anp Indigestion, a Barbarous and Useless One. We say the OLD way but really it is the common and usual one at the pres ent time and many dyspeptics, and phy sicians as well, consider the first step, in attempting to cure indigestion is to diet either by selecting certain food and rejecting others or to greatly diminish the quantity of food usually taken. In other words the starvation plan is by many, supposed to be the first 'es sential in the cure of weak digestion. The almost certain failure of the starvation cure for stomach trouble has been proven time and again but still the usual advice, wherf dyspepsia makes its appearance, is a course of dieting. All this la radically wrong. It is fool ish and unscientific to recommend diet ing or starvation to a person suffering from dyspepsia because indigestion itself STARVES every organ and every nerve and fibre in the body. What is needed is ABUNDANT NU TRITION, not less, and this means plenty of good, wholesome, well-cooked food and some natural digestive to as sist the weak stomach to digest it. This is exactly the purpose for which Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are adapted and th is the way they cure the worst cases of. stomach trouble. The patient eats plenty of wholesome f?-8" Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets DI tihblb IT for him. And this is in accordance with nature and common sense because in this way nvt-D,? is nourished and the OVERWORKED STOMACH rested, be cause the tablets will digest the food, whether the stomach WORKS OR NOT 9ne ?f,?art'a Dyspepsia Tablets will digest 1,800 grains of meat, eggs and similar food. Any druggist will tell you that Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is a remedy of extra ordinary value and nrobably Is the purest and safest remedy for stomach troubles. No Person suffering from poor diges tion and lack of appetite can fail to be mm!6 tte and , Irmanently benefited If they would make it a practice to take one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab UU after each meal. $16 per member per year to maintain the institutions, but in no case is the member asked to pay more than $5 per year. The difference is made up by the railroad company on whose line the building is located, and by donations from the public spirited and charitably inclined. Many wealthy men, in the east especially, make annual appropria tions for the Young Men's Christian association.- The railroad companies find it pays them well to equip libraries and reading rooms for their employes and do all in their power to keep their men under good moral and Intellectual in fluences. Coffeyville people have shown their appreciation of getting the new build ing in several ways. They subscribed $1,700 to help pay the original cost. The churches are going to furnish the sleeping rooms. In each room will be a handsome silver plate telling by whom that room was furnished. The young men of the city are going to raise mon ey for a piano to be mit in the halL Within a year or two Mr. Geer confi dently expects a gymnasium to be ad ded to the east end of the building. These contemplated enlargements caused the tower to be cut out of the present construction. The Y. M. C. A. has come to Coffeyville to stay. NEW BAGGAGE RULES. Uniform Regulations on Western Lines After January 1. The chairman of the Western Passenger association has issued a circular relating to the uniform baggage rules adopted by the western lines, effective January I. These rules apply to baggage proper, the limit of weight of single pieces, tree al lowance, authority for checking, transfer bills, storage, train mall, transportation of deceased persons, forwarding baggage, opening baggage en route, bad-order bag gage and transportation of dogs.

A ticket will be required for the 'person in charge, and one full first class ticket for the corpse. No half-fare tickets will be accepted for the transpor- BUILDING JUST BEING COMPLETED AT COFFEYVILLE. tation of anv corpse. The movement of all corpses should be covered by an excess baggage check. No piece of baggage (except foreign em igrant baggage) weighing over 250 pounds will be accepted or checked as baggiflre. One hundred and fifty pounds of bag gage will be checked free for each pas senger presenting a full ticket, and 75 pounds on 'each half ticket. Baggage will be checked only on presen tation of proper transportation. It must not be checked beyond the point to which ticket reads, nor via any route other than that designated on the ticket. At the re quest of passengers holding first class un limited tickets, checks may be issued to any point short of destination. Baggage must not be checked short of destination on limited tickets of any class, except those on which stop over privileges are granted. ALTON-U. P. COMBINE. Harriman Said to Be Planning to Boom the Kansas Pacific. Chicago, Nov. 20. It is reported that the Harriman syndicate, which owns the Kan sas Pacific, is arranging to join that line with the Alton in order to give the latter a through route from Chicago and St. Louis to Denver and the Colorado junc tion points. The Alton's main line now ends in Kansas City. In that city con nection is had not only with the Kansas Pacific, but with the Burlington. Rock Is land, Santa Fe, Missouri Pacific and other roads west bound from there. The Kansas Pacific is part of the old Union Pacirtc system, and is still operated by the latter company. It has never cut much figure as a through or local line and it is said that the Harriman people are anxious to utilize it in some way, and the logical way, it Is said, is to connect it with the Alton. GOT THEIR PAY. Section Men Spiked the Track Till the President Promised. Section men on the Chicago and South eastern railroad spiked the track at Jolietville and refused to permit trains to pass until they received the wages that have been due for several weeks. Frank Ramsey and Wm. Calvert were arrested by Leputy Sheriff Bray on the charge of obstructing the track. As soon as they were in custody others stood guard over the right of way. The men were finally prevailed upon to allow the trains to pass on the promise of Harry Crawford, president of the road, that they would re ceive their money at once. STONE IS POOR. May Cause Delay in New Santa Fe Machine Shop. Moseley's gang which has been put ting in concrete for foundation for the new Santa Fe machine shop, be gan work again, but it is not known how long they will be able to continue because of the shortage of material which still exists. The crushed stone which has been received of late has come from Ponca City, Ok., and it is of such poor equality that it will proba bly have to be refused. Heretofore the ballast has been from Hallard over on the St. Joseph branch, but the crusher there has closed and it is not known where the rock will come from. The principal objection to the Ponca City product is that it contains large quantities of clay and dirt whicn render it a poor quality for mixing up with cement. Within two days a large quantity of cement and sand has come in and is being unloaded. Work on-the Lecompton depot has been progressing rapidly of late and if the brick for the platform arrives the whole job will be done this week. Not much has been accomplished in ice house construction because the lum ber has not been forthcoming. HE PUT IN 28,800 RIVETS. What One Man Did on New Santa Fe Tank Cars. Boilermaker A. L. McNair is winding up a job which he began about two months ago in connection with the con struction of the new Santa Fe tank cars. Each tank is held in place by seven steel bands 18 feet long which pass over the top and are fastened to each side of the car bottom. The ends had to be fastened on 'the band proper and then they are shipped to Chicago. In doing this job McNair put; in by means of compressed air 28,800 rivets half an inch thick and an inch and three-quarters long. Besides doing the actual work he laid off the material, punched the holes and with the aid of a helper put in the bolts. Nine hun dred tower draw-bars were also given "sleeves," they being a part of equip ment of the new, order. If no delay comes the 450 tanks will be done by January L 4-WHEELED CABOOSES. Peculiar Cars to Be Used by Mexican Central. There are 24 new cabooses standing In the Santa Fe yards, says the El Paso Herald, ready to be transferred to the Mexican Central, to which road they are consigned. They are peculiar little affairs, being only about half the length and weight of the cabooses used on other roads com ing into this city. They have only four wheels each, making them look much like the El Paso street cars, and they are not much larger than they. They have no end doors, and only doors of the width of those in the ends of other cabooses in each sidei They seem to be very lightly and cheap ly put up, but a trainman, who was asked some questions about them, said they were made exceptionally strong in the frame and there was no questioning their durability. He said the Pennsylvania road and Great Northern used cabooses of this build because they were stronger . than the ordinary caboose and could better withstand the pressure of a pushing en gine, which was often used on the steep prades of those roads. A caboose with only four wheels is an odd looking thing anyway. COULDN'T GET IN. New Santa Fe Locomotives Too Big For Emporia Shops. TFrom the Emporia Gazette. Two of the big passenger engines that recently were put on by the Baldwin company of Pennsylvania went through Emporia yesterday on their first trip this far west. They didn't go into the shops here and that isn't half they couldn't if they wanted to. They are too large. Sev- eral of the shop men who worked in the round house 25 years ago and who are still employed there, recall the time when some of the engines now 25 years did, a few of which are now in use and bear a 0 before their number, first came into service and the exclamations which greeted them concerning their size. To place one of them alongside of the latest out, such as the steamers which came through here yesterday or even by one of the Baldwin compounds, and you have a slight idea of the advance in mechanics during the 25 years. They compare like a lion and a mouse. SANTA FE TRACKS FLOODED. Big Overflow of the Rio Grande De lays El Paso Trains. The cause of the delay of the Santa Fe passenger trains which are running 24 hours late at El Paso and other south western points was the overflow of the Rio Grande near La Joya. La Joya is a small station about one hundred and fifty miles this side of Al buquerque and along near that place the river and the railroad run parallel for about four miles. The heavy rain and snow in northern New Mexico had put the Rio Grande on a tear and for about a quarter of a mile along this parallel place the water arose a foot above the rails. The trainmen were afraid to run the train through this water and it was held on the other side until the water ran down. When it ran down the track was found to be still in a passable con dition and the train came on. RATES TO WEST INDIES. Santa Fe Cuts Freight Tariffs With Nicaragua Steamships The Santa Fe has announced rates In connection with the Nicaragua Steamship company, via Galveston, for the ports of Bluenelds and Rama, Nicaragua. This steamship company is opening a line of banana steamboats between the ports named, and the Santa Fe announces that the management of the boat line is will ing to make specially low rates on freight for Havana, Cienfuegos and other West Indian ports in order to secure re turn cargoes. Canned goods, flour, grain and packing house products are to be at tracted to the Galveston route by the low rates. E. W. Thompson Leaves For Mexico. El Paso, Nov. 20. Mr. B. W. Thompson of Topeka and Mr. L M. Allen of Chi cago, officials of the Chicago and Rock Island's passenger department, who ar rived on the late Santa Fe Friday night, departed yesterday for the City of Mex ico. During the morning they were driven over the city, and called at the general offices of the El Paso and Northwestern. While here arrangements were made whereby their road will grant reduced rates for the carnival. In speaking of the Rock Island exten sion Mr. Allen said: "We hope to be able to have trains running into El Paso by January 15, but it may be as late as Feb ruary 1 before a regular schedule will be in operation."

Charles Fisher, who works in the sheds, stepped on a nail the other day and has not been on duty since. T. E. Prout. general secretary of the Railroad Y. M. C. A., went to Kansas City Tuesday on business. Another string of about a dozen tank cars rolled into the yards Tuesday from Chicago to be finished here. G. W. Hamilton, a tinner in Goulding"s gang, who has been kept at home by sick ness, is at his bench again. The wife of M. F. Hand, assistant to Electrician Frost, has returned from a two weeks' visit in Denver. The wife of Edward King, clerk in the blacksmith shop, is enjoying a visit from her brother, Arden Lehman, of Humboldt. The wife of W. M. Grubbs of the brass foundry has returned from Chicago, where she has been for three weeks on a visit. Three car loads of the Hale-Kilburn walkover seats have been received here to be used in fitting up chair cars with them. Lately the wheel shop has been filling a large order for hand car wheels. It has been necessary to work overtime for an evening or- two. Tuesday afternoon the sea cow was fired up with the burner invented by John Player in use. The results, from reports, were satisfactory. " No. 3 hammer in the blacksmith shop was out of service Tuesday on account of a broken piston. The men who work on it were sent home. Edwin Stone, the switchman who had one leg injured in an accident a week ago, is slowly recovering and .expects to be able to work in a week. Because the main back casting of the bull-dozer in the south end of the black smith shop broke, that machine has been out of service a day or two. Hugh Farris, a helper in the tank room, fell into an engine pit the other day while at work, injuring his right foot so badly that he has not been on duty since. R. S. Stockwell, a packer In -the store house, has returned to his place after having been otr a day or two to move from Emmett street to 304 Madison street.

William Fisher, a coal shoveler who does emergency work for Fuel Contractor Closson of the Santa Fe, has been sent to Pueblo, Col., to remain during the win ter. Conductor C. Coddington took light en gine 04 to Holliday Tuesday morning and from there had charge of General Mana ger Mudge'a special, which went over the cut-off. Charles Billings of the east shop,-who received an injury to one knee last week, has been obliged to lay off and allow the member time to recover before returning to work. At the coach shop tomorrow noon Rev. Charles M. Sheldon, pastor of the Central Congregational church, author of "In His Steps" and other story-sermons, will speak to the men. Carl Nelson, a machinist who quit here four months ago and who has been fol lowing his trade at Lindsborg. has re turned to Topeka and went on the Santa Fe pay roll this morning. Just now there is a great deal of hay being shipped into Topeka over the Santa Be. It appears to be of excellent quality, bright and fresh. Most of it comes from Oklahoma and the Indian Territory. H. D. McNeely, who fires for Engineer Amos Beeler. who takes all the engines out on trial trips, has been on the list of those laying off on account of sickness. T. H. Devlin has been taking his place. Boilermaker Albert Schaeffler. who was called home Monday by the illness of his wife, has resumed work. Mrs. Schaeffler has partially recovered from a sudden ill ness which seized her Monday morning. The wife of Wiliam Boyes of the water service has returned from Chicago, where she has been for about two weeks. His sister. Miss Edith, who also went there, will remain with her aunt, Mrs. George Denton. Charles Altman, who formerly worked in the boiler shop here as a helper, has arrived in Topeka from San Bernardino, Cal. He has been out in that country about two years, but will probably be put on here. Herman Pausch has arrived from Co lumbus, O., and is doing the work of ste nographer for General Master Mechanic Collinson. He was formerly stenographer to Assistant Superintendent of Machinery Henderson. Day coach 2617. one which has just been turned out after receiving a general over hauling, has been assigned to service on the St. Joseph passenger and went out for the first time Tuesday evening. It was formerly 'the 49. Tonight the orchestra will hold its re hearsal at the "annex" of the Railroad Y. M. C. A. The work of the organiza tion has been excellent of late and the attendance has been gratifying to those who are interested in it. George Aye began a four years' appren ticeship in the machine shop Tuesday. He was formerly in the employ of the com pany, being clerk in the office of the aud itor of freight receipts. He is a son of M. H. Aye, a member of the city police force. This morning the gang of men which has been putting the new roof on the car sheds began a job of two days on the new blacksmith shop. After completing it the force will go to Newton to put a new roof on the Santa Fe round house at that place. Reed Sayler, first fireman at the mill, was in charge of the engine there Tues day. George Atkinson, the regular man, had been ud all the previous night run ning the machine for the wheel shop, which was doing an extra job on some hand car wheels. Fireman John Grusenmeyer.who recent ly resigned his job here, left Tuesday for San Bernardino, Cal. Near there he has a brother who is in the fruit business and who is doing well. The two brothers ex pect to form a partnership and make more money than either could alone. Dining car 1954 has been brought in from -Chicago and will be transformed into a special to be used by the officials. The inside equipment will be assigned to some other diner and the coach will be given a general overhauling. It has been running on the through trains on the main line. Preparatory to freezing weather the water hydrants are being boxed and banked. Inside the small inclosure which is being built enough space is reserved to store large quantities- of hose in such shape that it will be preserved and at the same time be ready for use by the shop fire department. When the large feather-like flakes of snow began falling Monday the shop men began having all kinds of visions of rab bit hunting. There is nothing so conducive to this particular sport as a blanket of whiteness all over the earth, and every time it comes there are not a few of the Santa Fe men who take advantage of it for hunting. Robert and George Nightingale of the shops have been obliged to lay off because of the critical illness of their father, M. F. Nightingale, of 201 Chandler street. who has been sick with Bright's disease most of the summer. He formerly worked in the pattern shop and was an employe of the Santa Fe for more than twenty years. Messages announcing his critical illness have been sent to his son Edward, a brakeman on the Denver and Rio Grande at Denver, and his daughter, Mrs. Geo. Rain, the wife of a Santa Fe engineer at Arkansas City. Fireman R. H. Lain, who has one of the fast passenger runs between Topeka and Newton, left Tuesday for Denver, Col. His wife was operated upon at the hospital only a few days ago and has so far recovered as to be able to be removed to her home at 132 Adams street. Re turning with him will be his sister. Miss E. J. Lain, who will live with him here all winter. While out there Lain will also visit his .brother. D. H., who former ly fired the Kansas City plug for Engineer John Higgins, but who now has a simi lar job on the Denver and Rio Grande. David Hodgson, who has been watching the company material and tools on the site of the new machine shop, left Tues day on No. 5 for Colorado Springs, where he will become a flagman for the Santa Fe. For a long time during the summer and fall Hodgson stood guard at the new blacksmith shop, but since then he has been on duty on the opposite side of the street. Until about two years ago he had charge of the track work in Topeka yards, a position which he had held for a long time. Before that he was road master on a line up in Iowa, and alto gether has seen much service in that de partment of railroading. Conductor T. A. Verlln and Brakeman E. O. -Van Beck went to Osage City Tues day to relieve the regular men who were attending the Investigation held there to locate the responsibility of the wreck of last week. Both Missouri Pacific and Santa Fe officials were present. There has been talk from time to time that an interlocking plant would be put in at the crossing there and the accident of last Thursday will probably be instrumental in hastening such a move. In that case onlv one engineer can secure the right to cross at a time and such mishaps as that of Thursday are prevented. A signal tower has been suggested and even ap proved for the crossing of these two lines in Topeka, but somehow the two lines have not acted together and it is not known when the improvement will be made. Foreigners say you can judge the pros perity of the Americans by the quantity of pie which they eat. If that be the case the men at the Santa Fe shops must be a thrifty set of men. A walk along the benches where they take their dinners re veals the fact that this is a standard arti cle of diet. And it is not present in any stingy amount or limited number of va rieties. There are half a dozen kinds, but just now apple and pumpkin seem to have the preference over all comers. A whole lot of the Santa Fe men never start out in the morning without being assured that two or three good sized slices of this class of pastry are stowed away in their lunch baskets, and some of them have whole pies of a small type. These, after being baked, are never cut by the cooks, but slipped in pan and all, and furnish ing an appetizing cap sheaf for the hun gry men's meals. TABLE AND KITCHEN. Conducted by Lida Ames Willis, Mar quette building, Chicago, to whom all inquiries should be addressed. All rights reserved by Banning com pany, Chicago. Potted Meats. The potted meats which the average housewife is most familiar with are the pasted meats like ham, tongue, chicken, etc., which are sold in cans or jars and found in all well-stocked gro cery stores. These are most conve nient for small families who are so sit uated that they have not conveniences for preparing or conveniences for keep ing any considerable quantity of food at any time, and yet have daily lunches to prepare, or a quick and frequent demand for sandwiches. These meats are put up in small cans or jars, so that all may be used as soon as the jar is opened and none left over to trouble the mind of the frugal housekeeper. Then, too. a convenient supply can be purchased" and kept on hand, as the jars take up so little room. The housekeeper who has time and prefers selecting and preparing her own materials for these dishes, may do so with little trouble and much satisfac tion if she carefully observe certain rules. For the benefit of those who cannot readily obtain the prepared potted meats in the form of pastes, we will give a few recipes. POTTED BEEF. Take two and a half pounds of lean beef and free it from skin and gristle. Put it into' a stone jar with tight fitting cover, add three dessert spoon fuls of hot water. Stand the jar in a deep stew pan of boiling water and boil slowly for nearly four hours; until meat is very tender. Be careful that the water in the stewpan does not boil over into the jar containing the meat. When meat is done trke it out and mince it fine; then place it in a mortar, season to taste with salt, pepper, a lit tle ginger or ground mace. When smooth and like thick paste, mix it with live ounces of clarified butter and a little liquor from the jar; press into little china pots (it is a good plan to save all your little cheese pots for this purpose); pour clarified butter over the top and cover with waxed paper. POTTED TONGUE. One pound and a half of unsmoked,, boiled beef tongue; remove all skin, gristle and fat. Chop the meat fine and then pound it in a mortar as fine a3 possible, mixing in six ounces of clari fied butter, cayenne, nutmeg, cloves and mace and salt to taste. When pounded to a smooth paste, press into little pots or jars; cover the top with clarified butter and tie up tightly. The meat may be put through a chopper and then pounded, or rubbed to a fine paste. This will save considerable time and labor. POTTED FOWL AND HAM. Cut all the meat from a cold roast fowl; remove bones, skin, fat and gris tle, chop fine, with a quarter of a pound of lean, cooked ham. Add six ounces clarified butter, salt, pepper, nutmeg, cayenne and cloves to taste, and pound until it is reduced to a paste. Press into small jars; run clarified butter over the top and when cold tie wax paper over the top. Turkey or any kind of game is nice potted in this manner. POTTED MARBLED MEAT. This should be placed in a form ef such shape that when the meat is turn ed out whole it can be sliced down thin; showing the marbled effect. This is a nice dish for luncheon or Sunday night tea. Take a pickled tongue and boil it until very tender; skin and cut it into small pieces and then pound fine in a mortar with enough clarified but ter to make a smooth, rather stiff paste, season with a little powdered mace. Stew four pounds of lean veal and beat in the same manner, season well with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Then put some of the veal paste into the mold or form then some of the tongue paste in lumps, over the veal (this to give the marbled effect. Fill thel form) in this way; then press down very hard and pour clarified butter over it unless it is to be served the next day; turn it out on a dish; garnish with curled parsley and lemon. Cut down a few thin slices before sending it to the table, so the inside will show. POTTED SHRIMPS. When fresh shrimps are in the mar ket it is" well to prepare some in this way for future use. Shell the shrimps, season with salt and cayenne and just a suspicion of ground mace, cloves or nut meg, according to taste. Pound them to a paste and press down into little pots, as compactly as possible, so the clarified butter when poured over the top cannot run through them too much. Set the pots in a moderate oven for a few minutes and when cold just cover with clarified butter and tie them up. When the potted meats are to be turned out whole frm the jars or molds, brush them well with clarified butter, then when you wish to turn them out set the pots in hot water until the meat will loosen. . Do not pour the butter over the top of meat until it is perfectly cold. TO CLARIFY BUTTER. The butter used in potted meats in tended for keeping, must be clarified or they will not keep well and become strong. ' Put the butter in a saucepan and heat very gently; if any scum arises, skim carefully and then pour the clear fat from the "settlings" in the bottom of the saucepan. ANOTHER METHOD. This is to cook meats entire or in large pieces, in covered jars or vessels. by slow baking, same as the English. jugged meats, potted nare, pigeons, etc. Meats prepared in this manner are most "I PRESCRIBE PE RUNA For Catarrh," Says Dr. George C. Havener, of Washington, D. C. A DOCTOR'S PHILANTHROPY. Thousands of Chronic Catarrh Patients Under Free Treatment. Wherever Dr. Hartman is known the name of Peruna has become a household word. It is safe to say that no medicine in existence is used by so many fami lies as Peruna. This is especially true of this time of the year when the peo ple are liable to. catarrhal affections, coughs, colds, la grippe, etc. Peruna has cured more cases of chronic catarrh than all other medi cines combined. The great majority of those who use it buy the remedy them selves, use it according to directions, not even reporting their case to Dr. Hartman until after they are entirely cured. But now that a limited number of cases can secure the personal attention of Dr. Hartman free of charge, it is not to be wondered at that many prefer to do so. Peruna never fails to cure ca tarrh when properly used. Mr. George A. Gauvin, 18 Spring Gar- appetizing and have all their goodness retained. They are rather rich morsels and may be considered hearty eating. POTTED BEEF. Take from six to eight pounds of beef from the round; put it into an earthen jar. Mix together quarter of a tea spoonful of ground cloves, quarter of a teaspoonful .ground allspice, a grating of nutmeg, a quarter of a teaspoonful of mace. On top of the beef put one onion sliced, a bouquet of soup herbs, two small bay leaves and the ground spices; cover closely and set on the stove where it will simmer, allowing at least as many hours as you have pounds and longer, if the beef is not very tender at end of time given. Turn it every fifteen minutes. Do this quickly so that it will not be uncov ered longer than necessary. When done place the meat where it will keep hot while Vou skim fat from the gravy in bottom of the jar. Then strain the gravy; add to it a tablespoonful of mushroom catsup, a dessert spoon of anchovy sauce, if you have it, a glass of white wine and salt and pepper to taste. Pour the gravy over the meat and serve with garnish of little turnip and carrot balls and parsley. Clear stock and Juice of half a lemon may be used instead of the white wine. JUGGED HARE OR RABBIT.
