A Very Strange Story
Remarkable Experience of a
Boston Man in Europe.
What Be Found in Switzerland and
Brongtt Back to America.
"I've got a story to tell," said of tho
best known business men in Boston to a
party of friends. '-Its the stranpest, niost
remarkable experience through which I ever
Passed. Here, ail of you have a agar, while
I proceed. ,
'I was on a pleasure trip in Europe last
summer with my family. Of course, we
had to see Paris, and while out riding my
wife fell from the carriage. She hurt her
ankle dreadfully. The doctor said a bone

was cracked and three ligaments were
broken. Anvhow, it was a bad accident.
Bhe couldn't walk couldn't bear her weight
on the foot. The doctor put all sorts of
mixtures on the ankle tried everything.
He had it massacred twice a day morning
and evening but that didn't do any good.
Ji v wife was in bed three weeks.
'The doctor said one dav: "That ankle
will mend in the course of time, but you
want to take your wife away from Paris to
some quiet plai-e.' So I jacked up and
went to a little Tillage in Switzerland. My
wife had to bo carried to and from the
train. She was positively helpless.
"After we arrived in the village, I sent
for another doctor. He came, and said the
only way to cure that ankle was to have it
massaged twice a day. I didn't have much
faith in it, but what could I do? I employ
ed a native woman to massage the ankle,
and she came morning and evening for
fifteen days.
'I employed a natiie uoman.'
"The ailing ankle didn't improve, so I
said to the native woman. 'Give me your

leave tomorrow.'
"The w oman remarked that if we would
Eut oil our departure for a day, she would
ring sometime; to rub on the foot that
would cure it. That seemed queer to me.
why hadn't she brought it before? I sup
pose she wanted her engagement to last as
long as possible.
'-Vel!. we waited a day, and the next
morning the woman came w-ith a queer
looking green oil in a bottle. This she rub
bed oik my wife's ankle. In about two
hours my wife said :
'"Why, my foot feels all right now.'
And she stood up and walked. I was as
tounded. It didn't seem possible, but it
was so, just the same.
"I said to myself: 'If that queer oil can
relieve a pain iu two hours that the doctor
couldn't cure in six weeks it must be a most
wonderful thing, and I'm going to find out
all about it.'
"I hunted the woman up- and asked:
Where did you get that oil!"
" 'My grandfather mak-w it,' she replied.
"'Who is your grandfather' was my
next question.
""O. he lives in such-and-such a street.
'"Will you take me to see him! '
"I said I wanted to find out what the oil
was made of. but th woman replied:
" 'My grandfather won't tell you. He
keeps it secret. He makes a living from it.
He selLs it to people around here to cure
rheumatism, lumliago and all kinds of bod
ily aches and pains.'

"My wife having recovered we went back
to Paris. I took the recipe to one of the best
chemists in the city to see if the old fellow in
Switzerland had fooled me by giving me a
worthless formula. The chemist analvzed a

found that the recipe was precisely the

Side Lights on Wells Fargo
Gifts to Employes.
One of Them Says It Is Engen
dering IU Feeling.
At the Same Time Hires Cheap
Different View From That Us
ually Taken by Public.
Do the Wells Fargo employes appre
ciate the generosity of the company in
giving each man a turkey with "trim
mings" on Thanksgiving and Christ
mas? It is natural to suppose that they do,
but as a matter of fact, there are hun
dreds of them who denounce the dona
tion in bitter language. If the big men
in the Wells Fargo company should get
their ears down to the grass roots they
would hear a tremendous amount of
suppressed condemnation for the sup
posed kindness which annually costs
the company not less than $25,000.
Strange as it may seem, the yearly
gift of turkeys seems to be kindling a
spirit of dissatisfaction among the men,
instead of knitting the good will of the
employes to the interests of the com
pany. Not only in Topeka Is this spirit
manifest, but all over the country, to
a greater extent in some places than in
others. Topeka seems to be one of the
centers of the whirlwind of dissatisfac
tion which is constantly growing in
'Look here," said an old employe of
the company, who of course refused to
jeopardize his job by allowing his name
to be mentioned in the press, "do you
know what the Wells Fargo men really
think about this turkey business? Well,
I'll tell you, and I hope that the offi
cials of the company will read what I
say. and change their plans. The ex
press employes think that the free dis
tribution of turkeys is a gigantic adver
tising scheme. When the plan was orig
inated it may have been In good faith,
with a desire to give the men some
token of appreciation. But now it is
simply a cold-blooded advertising
scheme. The newspapers in the coun
try, within the next week or two, will
print thousands upon thousands of
complimentary items about the Wells
Fargo company, how generous they are
to their employes, and how the em
ployes love the company, and all that
sort of stuff. The company can well
afford to pay $2o.OOO for an advertising
scheme which will produce such results.
It is something which appeals strongly
to the popular feeling.
"But there is another side of it which
is even more; important to the men on
this division. I do not know how it is
on other parts of the line, but I speak
for this division in particular. The su
perintendent out here is a man who will
split a hair at economy. He tries to
make a record with his superiors for
economical administration, and he does
it at the expense of the employes. Now
I am not saying this in my own be
half, because I have a kind of a job
that is not in much danger. I get a
good, fair salary, and am not kicking
for more. But I know what has hap
pened in the case of scores of good men
who have worked up in the company.
The company has kept them till they
were drawing $50. $60 or $70 a month,
and then dropped them without cause,
except that their places might be taken
by cheap men who can be hired at any
time for $35 a month. That is the kind
of a thing which makes the men sore,
and makes them abuse the company
when it spends $25,000 in alleged bene
factions, but which is really spent to
advertise the company. If the company
hires cheap men, it will get cheap serv
ice, and turkeys won't help the situa
tion a bit."
It is of course impossible to determine
how large a proportion of the men feel
on the subject like the employe who is
quoted above. It would be unhealthy
for them to express their sentiments in
public The rebellious talk is all be
tween employes who consider them
selves aggrieved.
People in general have come to con
sider the Wells Fargo company as one
of the' ideal corporations of the coun
try. It has apparently always been
striving to retain the good will of its
employes. It supplies them with books
from a free circulating library, deliver
ing and taking away the books with
out charge. It distributes free Thanks
giving and Christmas dinners. It is
now planning a distribution of large
silver medals, costing over $1 each, in
commemoration of the fiftieth anniver
sary of the company. Every employe of
the company is to receive one of these
medals frse of charge, simply as a sou
venir of the anniversary occasion.
For the Souls of Filipinos and Boers
Who Died Fighting.
New York, Nov. 26. Rev. Joseph F.
Hendi, rector of the church of the Im
maculate Conception at Montclair, N.
J., announces that at 8 a. m. Thursday
he will celebrate a high mass of re
quiem for the repose of the souls of the
Filipinos 'who died fighting for the
rights of their country," and the Cath
olics who have been slain lighting with
the Boers in South Africa.
Father Hendi said the mass was in
tended as a tribute to those who had
died in the defense of their homes and
families. It is also in the nature of a
protest, he said, against the acts of both
the American and English governments.
Seventh District Postoffice Fight.
There is a postoffice row down in the
Seventh district, but it isn't anything
of Congressman Long's doings, but
there is danger of its making him trou
ble, just the same. A. H. Wallace,
postmaster at South Haven, Sumner
county, was removed on charges, the
principal one of which was that he fail
ed to deliver the Wellington Voice, ex
Superintendent Stryker's paper, to sub
scribers. J. P. Faurat was appointed
to succeed Wallace, but now the citi
zens of South Haven have become
stirred up and are demanding that Wal
lace be reinstated. They threaten to
take the fight into county and con
gressional politics if Faurat's appoint
ment is insisted on.

Scottish bociety Preparing to Cele
brate Birthday of Scotch Bard.
The members of the Scottish society
of Topeka are already making plans for
the celebration of the anniversary of
Burns' birthday here on January 25.
The society has inaugurated a series
of monthly meeting to be held at' the
residences of the various members of
the society, at which time programmes
of interest and appropriate o the time
will be prepared and given. The first
one will be held on the evening of De
cember 6, at the home of James Cuth
bert, at 218 Clay street. The second
event will be on January 25. and will
be held at the hall of the society. The
members of the society met Saturday

Frederick Warde drew at miserably
small audience to the Crawford last
night at $1.50 to see him in an old
fashioned melodrama affair from the
French of D'Ennery, author of "The
Two Orphans," entitled "The Mounte
bank." "Mountebank" is the centuries old and
polite, unabridged title for "grafter."
Mr. Warde might be good in some plays
and some players might be better than
Warde in the part of the wandering
mountebank, but no one could be daz
zling in the part, as there is nothing to
it. Those who have seen Warde in such
roles as "Virginius" were sorely disap
pointed last night when they saw him
meander through the listless "me wife,
me child" lines from the "Two Orphans"
play factory in France. The audience
which saw Mr. Warde did not blockade
the stairway in getting in or out of the
theater, and the cash drawer in the box
office was not full to overflowing by
any means. Mr. Warde's company was
fairly good in spots, and might appear
to better advantage in a better vehicle.
In the supposed to be emotional pas
sages through which Mr. Warde trod the
stage in sore distress, the audience
looked on in stolid silence.

To the Editor of the State Journal.
In the paper of November 25, an ar
ticle is published stating that H. A.
Bishop traded to Harvey Giffin a gro
cery stock worth $53 for 12 acres of land
and seven milch cows. In first place,
it is not true that there were 12 acres
but 10, and in the second place, I never
traded a grocery stock to Mr. Giffin.
Swift & Ertle, of Tenth and Monroe

of them. They made me a party to the
suit because I have some property. I
traded 160 acres of land to Swift .4

Clifton's Labor Trouble.
The city of Clifton is having trouble
over the eight hour law. The city is
buildfhg its own waterworks, and has
been paying its laborers at the rate ot
15 cents an hour, but letting them work
ten hours a day. The regular scale of
wages there is $1.50 per day, and ac
cording to the eight hour law the city
must pay the regular scale for eight
hours' work. The city council now finds
that it must make up the extra amount
to its laborers.
