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

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

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.

$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

Within a year or two Mr. Geer confi
dently expects a gymnasium to be ad

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

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."

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.

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.

"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.

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.
Have the hare or rabbit skinned,
singed and cut into pieces. Do not
wash the meat, but wipe thoroughly
with a cloth wrung from hot water.
Wipe dry and dredge with flour; fry
a nice brown in vegetable oil; season
with salt, pepper and cayenne. Make
a pint and a half of "broth from one and
one-half pounds of stock beef. Put the
pieces of hare or rabbit into stone jar,
add a medium-sized onion stuck with
four or five cloves, a lemon peeled and
cut and the gravy. Cover the Jar close
ly to keep in the steam, set the jar
in a deep saucepan of cold water; let
it come to boiling point and cook for
four hours, unless the hare is young,
then three hours will be sufficient.
When done take out of the jar, put all
into a stewpan and shake over the fire
for a few minutes, adding a tablespoon
ful of mushroom catsup, two table
spoonfuls of flour; and if you use wine,
a gill of port. Serve with vegetable
forcemeat balls and currant jelly.
Inquiries Answered.
B. A. O. writes: Will you please have
printed the recipes for making chili, hot
tamales and such things that are good
for midnight lunch.
CHILI CON CARNE.
This is probably the recipe that you
have in mind: Take either two pounds
of round steak or a chicken weighing
not more than two and a half pounds.
If steak is used, cut into two-inch cubes
and brown in a little salad oil. Remove
the seeds and veins from eight or ten
chili peppers, cover with boiling water
and scald until soft, then drain and rub
through a coarse soft, sieve. Chop a
small Spanish onion with a clove or two
of garlic; add the chili, onion and gar
lic to the meat, add a teaspoonful of
black pepper and enough water to cov
er and cook gently for two hours or
until the meat is tender. If more water
is needed while cooking, add it boiling
hot and little at a time.
MEXICAN TAMALES.
Take two pounds of corn, a handful
of lime and water enough to cover, boil
until the skin loosens from the grain;
then wash thoroughly in cold water to
remove the lime. Grind the corn very
fine, using a food chopper or coffee mill
for the purpose. Boil a large chicken,
one that will give three pounds of meat,
in as little wateraspossible.Mix the corn
to a paste with sqme of the liquor from
the chicken; then work in a scant pound
of firm lard and salt to taste. Add two
cloves of garlic chopped fine. Remove
the seeds from half a pound of red pep
pers, scald until soft, then skin them
and rub to a paste. Add two cloves of
garlic chopped fine, a little ripe tomato
and half a pound of ground chilis. Mix
all materials with the chicken meat,
set over the fire and let cook a few min
utes, see that it is seasoned to tasto
with salt. Have some corn busks ready.
