TOPEKA STATE -TOTJTlAI WEDNESDAY EVENING. OCTOBER 1. 1902.
I tr - w - a
Mrs. Anderson, a prominent
society woman of Jacksonville,
Fla., daughter of Recorder of
Deeds, West, says :
' " There are but few wives and
mothers who have not at times en
dured agonies and such pain as only
women know of. I wish such women
knew the value of L,ydia K. Pink
barn's Vegetable Compound. It
is a remarkable medicine, different in
ction from any other I ever knew and
thoroughly reliable.
' I have seen cases where women
doctored for years without permanent
benefit who were cured in less than
three months after taking your Vege
table Compound, "while others who
Were chronic and incurable came out
Cured, happy, and in perfect health
after a thorough treatment with this
medicine. I have never used it myself
without gaining great benefit. A
few doses restores my strength and
appetite, and tones up the entire
system. Your medicine has been tried
and found true, hence I fully endorse
it." Mas. R. A. Anderson. 225 Wash

Santa Fe Constructing New Plant at
Dodge City.
At Dodge City the Santa Fe has com
menced the erection of a plant for
treating water o remove the incrtist
ants which have uroven so detrimental
to the boilers of its locomotives, the in
stitution to be operated by the Ken
nicott Water Softener company of Chi
cago which has promised to take charge
of a number of these plants along the
line. The one at Dodge City will have
a capacity of 8.000 gallons an hour.
There are to be three others. One at
Syracuse, Kan., whose output will be
4.000 rallons hourly: at Lamar, Col., 4,
000; and at La Junta, Col., 2,500 gallons.
The chemicals used in removing the
destructive constituents are lime and
sodium carbonate but entire plant is an-
elnborste- one.' - It is nrobnbie trrafthi-H
is a move which will not end until all
along the Santa Fe lines iilaees .for
treating the water used in the engine
boilers are built. The cost is great, but
the expense of keeping flues and boiler
parts in repair is an item one of the
largest which the we-tern railroads
have to nay but which she does not
confront so strongly the lines of the
cast.

Santa Fe Adopts a New Train
Signalling Device.
Invented by Amos McKanna, an
Ex-Engineer.
GETS A GOOD PRICE.
Reward for Four Years of Work
and Study.
Train Orders Can Be Given to
Trains in Motion.
Amos McKanna, an old Santa Fe en
gineer at Emporia, has been in Topeka
this week closing up a contract with the
Santa Fe for the adoption by that road
of a device for giving train orders to
engineers on engines going at full speed.
This invention has just been patented
bv McKanna. and will be at once
put into use on all parts of the Santa
Fe system. It will be manufactured at
the Santa Fe shops in this city.
M. McKanna was injured four years
ago in a Santa Fe wreck at Evans, near
Strong City, and since that time has
turned his attention to inventions. His
efforts are row rewarded, for he states
that under his contract with the Santa
Fe he gets a good price for his inven
tion, besides annual passes for himself
and his wife for life. The contract
leaves Mr. McKanna free to sell his de
vice to other railroads, and indications
are that it will prove itself of great
value and come into general use
throughout the country.
The invention consists of a large wire
loop fastened to the end of a stout stick.
Attached to the look is a metallic case
containing a written copy of the orders
tor .the locomotive engineer or conduc
tor. On the stick is a signal lamp and
a rsflectoi, to give notice to the engi
neer of the oncoming train that orders
are awaiting him.
The station agent holds up the loop
within reach of the engineer, who
grasps it as he tlies past. The wire loop
with the orders attached automatically
detaches itself from the stick and the
signal lamp.
This invention will obviate the neces
sity of stepping heavy trains at small
stations for orders. Instead, the orders
are telegraphed ahead of the train to
the station agent, who immediately ar
ranges his signalling device and awaits
the train. Without slackening speed the
engineer gets the orders.
It is believed by Mr. McKanna and the
Santa Fe officials that the invention will
not only be a great saving of time, but
will also be productive of economy in
operating trains. It costs considerable
money to stop a fast train, and the less
stops th more saving there is in train
operation.
Mr. McKanna says that in his numer
ous tests of the invention it has never
failed to work satisfactorily. He has
repeatedly passed train orders to engi
neers on Santa Fe trains running 60
miles an hour, and he believes that there
is no more trouble in giving orders to
trains at such high rates of speed than
to slower trains.
JOINT LINE THROUGH TEXAS.
Santa Fe and Bock Island Said to Be
in the Deal.
Galveston. Tex., Oct. 1. From a re-
-Mable-sourfe tt in learned that the Rock
Island and the Santa Fe are contem
plating the construction of a joint line
from some point in the Indian Territory
on the Choctaw, Oklahoma and Gulf to
Galveston. The Kock Island and the
Santa Fe extend to Fort Worth and a
new line will be built from that city to
Dallas, connecting with the main line
extension of the two roads from Dallas
to Galveston.
When the Rock Island first deter
mined to build from Fort Worth to deep
water at Galveston it was proposed to
use the Santa Fe's main line, the two
roads to use this jointly. It was decid
ed later that the grade of the Santa Fe
could not be lowered to a degree to niace
it in the best condition for competition
with the Gould and Southern Pacific
lines, and it was then proposed that the
two systems combine in building a new
line through Texas, which would in
clude Dallas and Houston, the two
largest and most imporan commercial
centers in north and south Texas.
The Santa Fe will continue to use its
main line for local freight and the San
ta Fe and the Rock Island will use the
new line jointly for through freight.
HUNTERS FOR HOMES.
Southwestern Lines Announce One
Way Raters for Colonists.
C. M. Pratt, chairman of the South
western Passenger bureau, has com
pleted the promulgation of the an
nouncement cf a one-way colonist rate
to southwestern territory, effective on
homeseekers' dates from October, 190.;,
to April, 1903. inclusive.
These one-way colonist rates will be

sheets, at $2 In addition to one-half of
the regular standard one-way first-class
fares.
The low rates will be effective with
the second homeseekers' date in Octo
ber, Tuesday, the 21st, and continuing
until the last homeseekers' excursion
date of April, 1903, which will be the
third Tuesday of that month.
This rate is second class and not good
in standard sleepers, and will be in
effect from St. Louis, Kansas City.
Memphis and other Mississippi and Mis
souri river gateways. The rate will be
tendered to connecting lines for basing
purposes.
The following lines will participate in
this arrangement: The Santa Fe, the-
Bock Island Pacific, the Rock Island &

tne Southern Pacific, the Texas & Pa
cific, and the Texas Midland.
On October 6 these lines will take up
the matter of establishing a central
Dureau m fet. Louis, and a proposition to
vote $50,000 to the maintenance of the
bureau, the purpose of which will be to
auveruse tne southwest.
GEEK, STOPPED EUNAWAY.
Plucky Operator Boarded a Flying
Locomotive Near Houston.
From the EI Paso Times.!
"Stop 631; she's running: wild," was
the order sent out from the Southern
Pacific dispatcher's office in Houston
one night last week at 11 o'clock. No.
631 is an oil burning switch engine do
ing duty in the Southern Pacific vards
The engine was on the main line and in
some unaccountable way took wing3
and started off. There was a rush to
capture the runaway, but to no avail.
Then the assistance of the telegraph
was invoked, cnane Junction was call
ed and told to look out for the run
away. Instantly Operator Geer at the
latter coint was on the alert. He gave
the signal and with Watchman Me
Quordale and Yard Clerk Bruce Fergu
son awaited the coming of the fugitive.
i he engine showed up in a few minutes
going at the rate of 12 or 15 miles an
hour. Taking a running start Operator
Greer boarded the engine and in a mo
ment was in the cab. Grasping the lever
he quickly brought the runaway to a
standstill, and in a minute or two had
her on a sidetrack. Just then an extra
hove in sight from Blodgett and blew
for the crossing, coming in the direction
that the wild machine had been racing
a few minutes before. Use of the wire
and the quickness of Operator Greer
and his fellow workmen had prevented
a serious wreck.
AFTER MORE LAND.
Union Pacific Working Their "Right
of Way" Claim Near Wamego.
The Wamego Times says: A. TJ. P,
agent has been here this week trying to
make leases of a strip of land 50 feet
wide upon either side of the company's
right of way, claiming that 200 feet
wide was granted the company by con
gress prior to the issuing of patents in
the oid Pottawatomie reserve, and in
two tracts owned bv the Peaks in sec
tion 12-10-8, one piece owned by Young
kampf in sect'on 11-10-8. and another
owned by D. V. Sorague in section 14-10-9.
All the land adjoining the rail
way east of Wamego, in the Pottawa
tomie reserve, is affected, as the lease
agent, C. A. Mathews, informs us. No
land owner, however, will acknowledge
the companyTs claim without protest,
and it will no doubt end in a lawsuit.
This is the same sort of a fisht the
Union Pacific is making all along its
line, and T. F. Garver of this city is
attorney for some of the narties who
are fighting the claim of the railway.

The Grape and Its Use.
The origin of the grape is obscure.
owing to its great antiquity, but we
nave evidence that it was one or the
earliest fruits cultivated. Whether its
intrinsic value was understood and rec
ognized by the ancient and primitive
usbandmen of Noah's time, or whether
because of their deliclousness and re
freshing juices the grape was a reign-
ng ravonte with the Greeks long te-
ore Homer s time, the remotest history
cites that wine pressed from grapes was
considered the appropriate offering to
tne deity among the Hebrews, and to
the gods among all the polytheistic na
tions. The grape, following the course of
other fruits in their dispersion through
out the different parts of the earth, has
Become one of the most important ana
luscious fruits of the new world. While
we have certain well known varieties
r native grape, the finest and most
luscious varieties of those which thrive
out doors or are cultivated in grape
ries east of the Mississippi, have been
brought to us from the vineyards
planted hundreds of years ago acrosa
tne sea. (irapes are so beautiful and de
licious; so nourishing, and, believed to
possess curative qualities as well, they
should be cultivated in sufficient quanti
ties to come within the means of all
during the greater part of the year.
They should be served more frequently
as a dessert than the sweet dishes.
which are often too rich and complete to
follow a hearty meal.
The grape cure, which generally prc
duces tte best results, owes much of its
success, no doubt, to abstemiousness
from rich diet, but aided by a good sup
porting diet and the fair amount of ex
ercise involved, as the patients must
take their doses direct from the vine.
Change of air and scene may likewise
play a considerable part in the cure.
Grapes, when taken in excess, will act
as aperients; they are recommended to
persons who suffer from disorders in
duced by sedentary habits. While
grapes are enjoyed by almost every one
and are in most all cases beneficial, the
quantity eaten must vary to suit indi
vidual cases and physical conditions.
W Ith the exception of dates it is stated
that grapes exceed all other fruits in
the amount of sugar they contain. In
the unripe fruit the extremely sour juice
in the skin overpowers completely the
weetness of the grape itself, and in the
green grape the juice is sweeter than
the whole fruit. The acid of grapes is
mainly tartaric acid combined with pot
ash, lime and magnesia.
Prof. Lebert in his observations on
the "grape cure" recommends it "to
those who are neither ill or well, who
are fatigued by a two. exciting and
somewhat intemperate life; or, weak
ened by severe illness, are convalescing
lowly; or who, leading habitually a
too sedentary and too laborious exist
ence, find under proper hygienic condl-
ions, with the grapes to regulate the
digestive functions, that the passage of
debility and fatigue into real disease
may often be prevented."
1 he aperient effect of the grapes may
not be noticed at once, but will usually
show itself after a few days.
In prescribing the cure, the nature of
the disease should be considered, as this
will determine the quantity of fruit to
be taken per day.
GRAPE JUICE.
A beverage fast growing into popular
favor because of its cH-liciousness and
its being wholly free from alcohol is the
unfermented juice of the grape. It
used for communion service, festival
wine, as a flavoring In many forms of
desserts and also as a valuable unstim
uiating tonic. It Is easily made at
home if one desires to manufacture
their own beverage, although there are
guaranteed brands on the market.
o make untermented wine or grape
juice select a very juicy variety o;
grape, like Concord; they should be well
ripened but perfect. W ash them thor
oughly through cold water, pick from
the stems and put in double boilers or
in vessels which may be fitted over oth
ers containing boiling water. Do not
add w-ater to the grapes but scald them
thoroughly until the skins burst open.
Pour into jelly bags made of two thick
nesses ot cheesecloth and let the juice
drain oft witnout squeezing the fruit.
If tiie juice is not perfectly clear strain
again. Allow tour pounds of best gran
ulated or crushed loaf sugar to every 25
pounds of fruit. Bring to boiling point.
skim carefully and then bottle or seal
in cans like truit. Keep in a cool dark
place. If you seal up in bottles, first
boil the corks in hot water and be sure
that they are pounded in until the bottle
is perfectly airtight.
ANOTHER METHOD.
Select grapes of the best quality and
very juicy. Strip them from the stems
and wash thoroughly; reject all the im

STRANGER THAN FICTION.
A Remedy Which Has Revolutionized
the Treatment of Stomach Troubles,
The remedy is not heralded as a won
derful discovery nor yet a secret patent
medicine, neither is it claimed to cure
anything e.cept dyspepsia, indigestion
and stomach troubles witn wnicn nine
out of ten suffer.
The remedy is in the form of pleas
ant tasting tablets or lozenges, contain
ing vegetable ana lruit essences, pur?
aseptic pepsin (government test,) golden
seal and diastase. The tablets are sold
by druggists under the name of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets. Many interesting
experiments to test the digestive power
of Stuart's tablets show that one grain
of the active principle contained in them
is -sufficient to thoroughly digest 3.UW
grains of raw meat, eggs and other
wholesome iooa.
Stuart's Tablets do not act upon the
bowels like after-dinner pills and cheap
cathartics, which simply irritate and in
flame the intestines without having any
effect whatever in digesting food or cur
ing indigestion.
If the stomacn can oe rested ana as
isted in the work of digestion it will
very soon recover its normal vigor, as
no organ is so much abused and over
worked as the stomacn.
: This is the secret, if there is any
secret, of the remarkable success of
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, a remedy
practically unknown a few years ago
and now the most widely know n of any
treatment for stomach weakness.
Thi3 success has been secured entirel
upon its merits as a digestive pure ana
simple because there can be no stomach
trouble if the food is promptly digested
Stuart's Digestive Tablets act entirely
on the food eaten, digesting it com
pletely, so that it can be assimilated
into blood, nerve and tissue. They cure
dyspepsia, water brash, sour stomach,
gas and bloating after meals, becaus
they furnish the digestive power which
weak stomachs lack and unless that
lack is supplied it is useless to attemp
to cure by the use cC "tonics," "pills
and cathartics, which have absolutely
no digestive power.
Stuart s Dyspepsia Tablets can t
found at all drug stores and the regula
use of one or two of them after meals
will demonstrate the! merit better than
ftty ether argument.

then squeeze the skins and pulp over a
separate kettle, as this iuice will not
be so clear and will need a secona
training and separate boiling. Boll the
liquid for half an hour, then bottle,
cork tightly, pour paraffine or sealing
fax over them and keep where it is
cool, dark and dry. This can be made
without suar if it can be kept in a
very cool place, otherwise it will be
safer to add a cup of sugar to every
quart of juice.
TO KEEP GRAPES FRESH.
The following method has oeen used
with perfect success by those who have
their own vines and is wortn trying at
least. Allow the grapes to remain on
the vines as long as possible without
their freezing. Select a cool, dry day
for gathering them. Handle them en
tirely by the stems to avoid nruismg
them and cut leaf and stem as long as
possible. Pick over carefully, rejecting
11 over-ripe, lmpertect ouncnes. ra
as soon as gatherea. isew, wooaen
cheese boxes with close fitting lids are
the best for packing, but heavy paste
board boxes, w ithout a break, will ans
wer nicely. Get a supply of dry cork
dust from the drug store; this is easilv
obtained and inexpensive, and is a
non-conductor of heat and will keep tne
grapes dry and in perfect condition. Put
a layer of the cork in the boxes, then
lay in the grapes carefully, not allowing
the ETPDes to touch one anotner. Lover
well with the cork dust and add another
layer of grapes, and continue in this
wav -until tho box is full. Put on the
covers and fasten down securely and
put the boxes in a dry. cool place and
they will keep for months.
CANNED GRAPES.
Grapes are not canned entire on ac
count of their objectionai seeds. n
vou desire them for a sauce to serve
with rich fatty meat like roast pork or
goose, use the green grapes, and fox
grapes, if you can get them; ripe grapes
are nicer for other meats. .Stem the
grapes, wash and drain them, then pulp,
putting the skins in one earthen crock
and pulp into another. Place the crocks
n vessels of hot water ana neat siowiy.
Stir the pulp frequently, with a woexlen
spoon, to separate the seeds. Now rub
the pulp tnrougn a cotanaer to remove
the seeas; put it into a pi e- .-rung net
tle with the skins and allow half a j
pound of sugar to each quart of the
pulp and skin, if ripe grapes, and a lit
tle more lor tne green grapes, uniew
you like a very tart sauce. Boil the
whole until the skins are tender, then
can and seal.
GRAPE JETjLT.
Wild grapes that havejust commenced
to turn are the nicest for jelly but cul
tivated grapes which are just beginning
to ripen make a delicious and beautiful
jelly. If too ripe your jelly will not be
firm, while it will be dark colored. Wash
the grapes, stem them; put into a stone
crock or porcelain-lined kettle and
mash them until broken. Then heat
slowly until all the juice is drawn out.
Turn into cheesecloth jelly bags and
hang up to drain, do not squeeze until
the juice ceases to drip, then squeeze
the pulp remaining in the bags over
another kettle. Allow pint of sugar to
pint of juice. Heat the sugar in oven,
while the juice is boiling. Boil it ten
minutes, skimming until clear: then aetd
the sugar and boil ten minutes longer
(timing it from time it begins to boil
hard). If your fruit is in proper state
for jelly-making twenty minutes rapid
boiling will make a clear, firm, but
"quivery" jelly. Boiling it too long will
darken it and it will not be so delicate
in flavor.

OATMEAL MUSH AND DIABETES.
Dr. Pavy, of Kngland has shown that
diabetes is due to an imperfect digestion
of starch and its absorption in the blood.
It is impossible for the stomach to
digest cereal foods taken in the form
of mush, in which the starch is less
than half cooked. This is one of the
reasons why diabetes is becoming so
common in this country and British Is
lands. French physicians long ago dis
covered that toasted bread or dextri
nized starch is an excellent remedy in
diabetes. The best dextrinized food,
however, is known to be Toasteti Wheat
Flakes, sweetened with Malt Honey,
made by the Battle Creek Sanitarium
Food Co. These flakes are thin, thor
oughly cooked and browned. They are
very appetizing, partly pre-digested end
quickly assimilable.
toes are on inferior variety and quality.
