TOFEKA STEB JOUKNAHSATUKDJaT-. EYElCtNGrOOTOBER 4, 1902. Tell me a Friend Who is Sick No Money is Wanted. Simply Let Me Send Him My Book. You have a friend who Is sick. "Write me his name. That is all just a postal card. Send It as an act of humanity. Tell me which book he needs. I will either cure that friend or pay all the cost of his treat ment. ' .1 111 at least do the utmost that medicine can do. I will give the best advice in my power. I may fail; but there will not be a penny of cost if I do. I will do this at the start: I will send the sick one an order on his or her druggist for six bottles of Dr. Shoop's Restorative. I will tell that druggist to let him test it for a month at my risk. If it succeeds the cost is $5.50. , If it fails I will pay the druggist myself. X will leave the decision to you. Don't say that this ia impossible, for I do just as I say. I have done it for years done it with hundreds of thousands. I will do it in any case, no matter how difficult. I only ask the sick one to be fair with himself and me. I cannot always succeed. There are conditions like cancer, Xor which I know no cure. But I alone am the loser when I fail. My records for five years show that 39 out of each 40 who accepted my offer, paid for the medicine taken. That means that 89 in each 40 are cured. That fact alone makes this offer pos sible. There are S3 chances in 40 that I can cure your friend. My success is due to a lifetime of effort, in learning how to ; Strengthen the inside nerves. It is this nerve power alone that operates the vital organs. No organ is weak when it has suffi cient power. I bring back the nerve power that is all. It is just like giving more steam to an engine that is weak. My book will explain it all. Every soul who reads this knows some sick friend. Tou knoWi comebody who will never find another way to get well. Let me tell that friend my way. I must be successful. My remedy must do what I claim. If it did not, such an offer as this would bankrupt me in a month. The sick one is your friend a stranger to me. If I am willing to do so much, won't you write a postal, that he or she may get well?

Murray Howe, secretary of the Memphis Trot ting association, is in receipt of a re quest from George Ketchum, owner of Cresceus, asking that an expert chauf feur with an automobile be secured to pace Cresceus when the champion trot ter is driven against his present world's record here during the Memphis Trot ting association's meeting the latter part of this month.

It would seem that O'Brien would be given the preference in a match with the champion, but it is given out by the very best of authority that O'Brien was heard to say that he would steer clear of Ryan for the present and clean up the easier money first. A meeting be tween Ryan and Choynski, however. would give a line on the respective qualities of Ryan and O'Brien from hich the critics should be able to judge the probable result . in the event of. a matching of the Phiiadelphian and Ry- n.

A SAVING OF $15 DAILY. Gives Figures to Show the Re- . duction to Be Made. Shows More Country and Re- ; quires Less Men and Teams. Winfield. Oct. 4. The Courier says: H. T. Trice returned yesterday from Chicago where he closed a deal for a 12-passenger, latest improved, up-to-date, . gasoline automobile. Mr. Trice paid $2,000 for it and thinks this a good investment from a business standpoint and says he purchased it as a matter of economy and thinks it will save him $15 to. $29 per day- in expenses. compared with the expense, of showing his throngs of customers with teams. He usually has about 12 people on hand to entertain which requires four teams and carriages and four drivers, and figures that these teams cost about $225 each and carriages $125 each, har ness $30 or a total of $380 for eacb rig or $1,420 for rigs for 12 people and about $60 per month each for four drivers ($30 salary and $1 per day or $30 per month expenses) or a total of $8 per day for drivers. These four teams are used one- half day and returned and four fresh teams for afternoon, making a total outlay of $2,840 for carriage teams daily to handle 12 people and , feeding lb horses three feeds daily, or 48 feeds at 15 cents each amounts to over $7 per day expense on horses, besides shoeing and other exDenses. This automobile has seats four feet long and requires one operator, and one salesman can entertain the 12 quests, thus saving $4 per day using men, (In stead of four required to use teams). Besides this saving of $4 and $ per day, perhaps twice as much country will be shown daily and if so half the expense, at hotels with large crowds will be saved and in addition to this the lo cal railroad fares from Wrinfield to other local towns usually average about $2 to each guest or about $25 per week most of which the automobile will save. about $30. , r.- e. - --r. , . -.(? .

The prelimi nary hearing of Will Stoltzman, agent for the Frisco road at Pawnee, Kas., who is charged with the murder of R, J. Morrison, the leading merchant of Paw nee, and tl-.e robbery of his store, was jegun Friday. The district court room was crowded. A large portion of. the spectators were women. Stoltzman is a handsome, stylish young man of but 20 years of age and the lines are being sharply drawn between his friends and those who believe him guilty. His par ents are here from Topeka. The state introduced testimony tend ing to show that he was itimate with Morrison, knew where he kept from $500 to $1,000 in his store, knew bis habits, that there was a light in the depot about 1 o'clock on the night of the murder, that when the sheriff, the next day, filed thirty telegrams with him as operator, paying day rates and ordering them sent immediately, in hopes of appre hending the murderer, he kept them until night and turned in the amount of the night rate to the company.' A bloody hat, admitted to have come from the Stoltzman house and which was found in a shock of corn between tho Morrison store and the Stoltzman home, was introduced. It was also shown that the trousers which Stoltzman wore that night were missing. He claimed they had been stolen and that his pocket knife, with which the state clains he cut Morrison's throat, was also stolen. The trial will be concluded today. RAIN AT FORT RILEY. ' AT -LEAVENWORTH. It has been raining almost incessantly" in this section of Kansas since the mid-dle-of September, and now considerabi alarm is felt for fear the rain will keep, up and prevent the fan sowing of wheat,. Very little wheat was sown before the wet spell eet in, and it will take at least ten days of dry weather for the farmers to finish drilling. Wheat should be in" the ground before October to insure.a good yield the following year, and as a very small acrease has been sown the? crop In this section next year Is almost, sure to be short. The ground is mdlre, thoroughly soaked now than it has been: for two years, and for : the first time- since the terrible drouth of last year the. creeks are running. The rainfall in the' past ten days has amounted to nearly , seven inches, making the greatest raih- fall for this section in the same length of time on record. Rain has fallen jn . torrents every day this week, and it ia almost cold enough to -snow. Tt-is al most impossible for farmers -to engage in any kind of work at present. . Pota-. toes are rotting in the ground and un less dry weather comes soon the crop will be greatly damaged. The apple crop Is also suffering. Apple groweis -were in the midst of the harvest, when the wet spell set in, and -they have not been able to gather any fruit for neari ly ten days. The fruit is dropping badly .. and the loss will be great. AT ABILENE. Steady rain with cold north wind has ' prevailed since midnight of Thursday. . The farmers are unable to enter the wheat fields to seed for next year's , crop. The indications are for the larg est wheat acreage in the history of this section if the farmers can complete their ( work, for the fields are thoroughly . soaked and there is promise of rapid growth. The corn stands In the fields untouched, for it is impossible to gather it while the wet weather continues-as it has for the past few weeks. The Smoky Hill river Is at its highest stage in fif teen years. It is out of Its banks and Is several feet deep between the bridge south of town and this city. J. H.

A cold rain has been falling since Thursday, driven by a high north wind. , It is causing considerable suffering among stock owing to farmers being -unprepared for rough weather so early in the year. A great amount of alfalfa and prairie hay has been lost by being cut and on the ground yet. The farm ers are becoming worried over the pros pects for fall seeding, as very litttle if any wheat has been put in. AT JUNCTION CITY. About an Inch and a half of rain fell . here Friday, making a total of about three inches this week. The short Inter vals between the rains this fall has had a serious effect on farm work. Not more than a fourth of the fall wheat planting has been done and haymaking has been progressing slowly.

A number of the na tional guard officers decided that they could do better than remain In the cold, rain-soaked, wind-swept camp, and about a dozen of tbem leff for home during the day. The Kansas troops will leave Monday, and even if today is fair they will have had the benefit of about two days' work with the regulars. It has been planned by the regular army officers to make the closing exercises the most Interesting of the entire series, but there will be none of the national guard to take part in the last maneuv ers save two hundred men of the Colo rado guard, and they leave one day be fore the close of the full programme. The work laid out for today, weather per mitting, includes the construction of a pontoon bridge by tne engineers and the formation of an advance guard by the entire command. There will be, as usual, an attack upon the marching column. LEFT DEBTS BEHIND. as a cry in s. People rom their 1 strained s on the iggling balloonist the sick room was for- ' r gotten while the fam ily gazed breathless at this strange tragedy of the air. . Then they went back to the sick room to tell of the terrible struggle for life they had just witnessed. It did not occur to them that under their very eyes a more terrible, more pathetic struggle was going on daily. There can be nothing more pitiful than the struggle the consumptive makes against disease. The greatest help in this struggle is gained by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis covery. It cures obstinate coughs, weak and bleeding lungs, - emaciation, and other ailments which if neglected or unskillfully treated find a fatal termina tion in consumption.

The heaviest loser by his departure is Senator H. F. Sheldon, who is out $650. Mallory was in the hay business and had leased some hay land from Mr. Sheldon, giving his note for $650 in payment for it. He then cut the hay. about 350 tons, and sold all but about 30 tons, collecting and pocketing the money. Several hundred dollars' worth of hay machinery was purchased from the Franklin County Hardware com pany and some from the Ottawa Hard ware company, but the hardware men went out to the farm this morning and found their property In the field where it had been left by Mallory. Mr. Sheldon went out with Sheriff Costigan and filed ttachments on the thirty tons of hay left in the field and also on Mallory's homestead. The home stead was sold by Mallory last Satur day to his sister, Mrs. Gilliland, for $1,150. It Is not known just what the terms of the sale were, but it is thought he received $600 cash down and the test on time. This place having been deeded to Mrs Gilliland, Mr. Sheldon will probably be put to the neccessity of bringing legal action to recover any thing on it. The hay that was left ir. the field will not bring over $50 to Mr. Sheldon after the Costs of attachment, etc.. are paid. It is thought Mallory sold about $1,000 worth of hay from the land, receiving the cash. . - ! . The First National bank will lose Philadelphia -.. St. LOUIS i Pittsburg , San Francisco ...
