TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, TUESDAY EVEXINGr, NOVEMBER '11, 1902. Woman's Wealth is Health Paine'sCelery Compound GIVES VITALITY, VIGOR AND STRENGTH TO DEBILITATED AND RUNDOWN WOMEN. It is maintained by many distinguish ed writers that the greatness of a nation depends much upon the physical condi tion of its women. The general condi tions which contribute to health and lone life, are those which do not imply m. rapid and unequal exhaustion of those powers by which life is maintained. While we assert that the women of oui land stand peerless for beauty and tho virtues that make them lovable we can not hide the fact that there are thous ands in our midst who, owing to over work, worry, household cares, and an unequal exhaustion of life power, have become weak, nervous, sleepless and de bilitated. We bring to the attention of all Weary, despondent, hopeless, and sickly women earth's great rescuer and health builder, Paine's Celery Compound. Thousands of healthy women around us. we their present vigor, activity, and robustness to Paine's Celery Com pound. Mrs. Stephen Smith. St. Paul, Minn. ..tells how she was snatched from the grave. She says: "I had a bad attack of la. grione this pring and was at death's door, and no one ever expected me to recover. I was o weak that as soon as they brought me out of one faint I was in another. I could not take any nourishment, and doctors' medicines did me no pood. A friend advised my hjjsband to get me a bottle of Paine's Celery Compound, which he did, but had no faith in it. The Second day after taking the Compound, I began to get real hungry and took an Interest in things. I had everything that money and loving care could sup ply, and with that and Paine's Celery Compound, I am now doing my own work, while three months ago I was almost In the grve. I know that I owe my health and strength to Paine's Cel ery Compound, and shall always recom mend it."

I availed myself of an escort furnished by the government to visit the region an' acquire some Information. We found no opposition to our progress, as the revolutionists are confining their operations chiefly to the mountain districts: but, having re turned to the city of Panama after an examination of the canal route, per haps a brief description of it may be Acceptable to American readers. It is more than twenty years now since Ferdinand De Lesseps began work on the Panama nd of this canal -began it in true French fashion, with balls galcre and banquets to officials, high and low. The result of nearly ten years' work was a total excavation estimated at from one-fifth to two-fifths the entire amount necessary to open a canal at tide level and an expenditure of more than $200,000,000, or a billion of francs. Forced to suspend operations in 18S9, the old Panama company was dissolved, and the scandals later came out that involved so many French officials. Then ensued a period of inactivity, dur ing which costly machinery rusted and fell to pieces, excavations became filled with silt and debris, and the very name of Panama was a stench in the nostrils of all honest men. A supreme effort was, however, made to resuscitate the corpse, many of the rascals who had been indicted were forced to disgorge and a new company, was formed in Oc tober, 1834, lust In time to save the concession from the Colombian govern ment from lapsing. It was evident from the first that a new and econom ical regime was to be inaugurated, and economy was carried to such a pitch that the laborers on the canal revolted and went on a disastrous strike. The strike was eventually quelled, however, and by midsummer, 1895, about 600 men were on the pay roll, and work was re commenced. It has been going on ever since, though the capital of the com pany was less than $10,000,000, as against twenty times that amount in the original company, and it must be confessed that the "corpus redivivus" has really accomplished something eince it took hold.

WOOD BACK AT WORK. The General Resumes Preparation of Report on Cuba. Washington, Nov. 11. General Wood has returned to Washington and at once re sumed work on his report of the occupa tion and government of Cuba. He says he has been absent too long to speak with any actual or direct knowledge of pres ent conditions in Cuba or the prospects in the island. He has not yet seen Minister Quesada, nor has he had opportunity to discuss the situation with officials of the United States who. are familiar with re cent developments. General Wood called at the White House and had a brief interview with the presi dent. He said there was no official sig nificance in his visit and he desired merely to pay his respects.

CONDITION OF THE PANAMA CANAL Mrs. Chaffee's stateroom with terrific force, the shock greatly prostrating that lady who was ill when she boarded the vessel. For hours the staunch vessel was in the gale, but careful seaman ship kept the vessel in safety until the storm broke and the weather calmed down to permit her being made ship shape once again. On board the transport were General Adna R. Chaffee and wife: Vice Gover nor Wright of the Philippine commis sion, accompanied by Mrs. Wright; General Chaffee's staff, Cantain J. R. Lindsey, Lieutenant Roy B. Carj.er, Ma jor J. L. Phillips, Major William Arth ur, Judge James Hunt of the Philip pine government; Lieutenant Colonel James T. Kerr and wife and a large number of officers' wives returning home. General Chaffee has been absent from this country for over three years, during which time duty called him to Cuba, to China and to the Philippines. His services in China were such that he is recognized the world over as a tac tician of wonderful knowledge and force and a diplomat of unquestionable ability. To General Chaffee's effort were due the speedy and peaceful settlement of the Chinese difficulty and in recogni tion of his services -in China he was detailed to go to the Philippines to bring about a more harmonious condi tion of affairs. The general said to a representative of the Associated Press: "When I lft Manila everything was progressing in a most satisfactory man ner. T co"id not more rtleased with the situation.

The greatest difficulty we experienced !n the islands is over coming th2 legends and superstition of the people. It is hard to overcome at once traits which have been born in the natives for centuries, and I will say to this one feature is largely due the spread of cholera and other pestilential diseases among them. They can not be made to submit to or to understand the modern methods of treatment, nor can they be made to see the utility of an up to date sanitary si'stem. The:' will not submit to quarantine peacefully and frequently escape from tbeir bounds, spreading dis ease.

Why PRESENT METHOD vested their earnings in the old com pany had been robbed and for awhile held aloof from the newer scheme, they no doubt still have a certain pride in the undertaking as one entirely French in character. To have built the great Suez canal was glory enough for one nation, it would seem, but the French are ambitious and are never quite hap py unless posing conspicuously before the world. They perhaps feel that in the end they may have to hand over the Panarsa canal to foreigners, as they had to deliver up the Suez, and, besides, the former is a vast distance farther away than the latter. There is no doubt at all in the minds of dip lomats as to who should own the Pan ama canal. Again, here comes in the i question of the desire of the United States government respecting the ca nal. .As to the necessity for an inter oceanic canal no one in his senses can have more than one opinion. It is ab solutely necessary to the United States, with its Immense coast line on the At lantic and the Pacific and its divided fleet of warships, necessitating a cruise of more than 10,000 miles additional around the Horn as opposed to a canal. they have ever been in the history of the country. "Great hardship prevails in some of the provinces where the natives are un able to plant their rice crops on account of the less of their farm animals, and I look for much suffering in these prov inces; but the sovernment has already taken steps to relieve the situation, and it will not be lone before most of the needy will be looked after. "I am very much pleased with the sit uation in the province of Samar. What was once one of the most unruly and belligerent of the provinces is now quiet and peaceful as this big city of yours. The natives are becoming prosperous under the industry which has been fos tered there, and they have a ready mar ket for their rice and hemp." General Chaffee reported Mrs. Chaf fee's health greatly improved, and stated that she had almost fully recovered from the prostration following her awful experiences during the typnoon. General Chaffee and party were wait ed upon by Mr. William P. Harper, rep resenting the Union League club of Chi cago, and formally invited by that gen tleman to be -the guests of the club dur ing their stay in Chicago. Mr. Harper, acting also for the Grand Army Hall and Memorial association of Illinois, tended the general the invitation to be the guest of the association at a public reception given in his honor. General Chaffee expressed great pleasure at bing invited to become true-guest of the Chicagoans and said: "Mr. Harper, I place myself in your hands. Any arrangements you make will be pleasant to me." Similar invitations were extended to Governor Wright and accepted condition ally, the governor not being certain as to his movements. Mr. Harper has arranged for General Chaffer and party to go to Chicago over the Southern Pacific, the Union Pacific and the Ch'cago Northwestern roads.

But the United States government seems to be in favor of the Nicaragua route for its interpceanic canal. We hope down here that before the matter is finally decided by congress your Un cle Sam will decide to take our route across the isthmus. We may be biased, of course, feeling that in such an event we should be exchanging an uncertain ty for a certainty and that prosperity would quickly follow in the wake of the American engineers. The great obstacle to the Panama route is Culebra mountain, necessitat ing a cut of about 330 feet perpendicu lar. Another almost as great difficulty is found in the Chagres river, which in the rainy season rises forty feet almost without warning. This stream really caused the collapse of the first com pany by destroying its dam and wash ing away all traces of years of work. It is now proposed to build such a dam as even the Chagres cannot carry away, or, rather, to construct two dams, one above the other, and con vert the unruly river into a vast lake.

But these are smaU matters when wgighed agaJnst the ben efits likely to accrue from this mighiy enterprise.

In all about twenty miles have been excavated, or fourteen on the Atlantic side and about six or, ;i-,e Pacific, while a vast amount r.." tra vating has been done and is still gtiog on in the interior. I have not srace to describe the ci-eT-ations in detail, but the photograph I send will serve to illustrate the mep.r.3 adopted for carrying on the work. I may say, however, that there are now from 3,500 to 4,000 men employed and that more work is done daily tbn when the old company was here arxl carrying at least 15,000 on its pay rolis. Some of the improvement is owing to the use of the latest types of machin ery, especially of excavators, but more is due to the improved moraf of the men. We estimate here that the exca vating is now going on at the rate of a million cubic meters per annum, as compared with one-thVrd that amount five years ago with the same number of laborers. In conclusion I may add that the com pleted cana! calls for a width of 160 feet at the top and 72 at the bottom, except through the Culebra ridge, where it is to be reduced to 78 feet at the top and 29 at the bottom. There has even been talk of tunneling this vertebra in the backbone of the cdrdll leias, but in the end the advocates of an open cut have prevailed, and. more over, several, if not all, of the locks will be done away with, and only the tidal locks on the coasts be eventually re tained. The difficulties are still tre mendous, perhaps insurmountable: by the present company of capitalists- en gaged in the undertaking, but there has been an appreciable advance during; the past few years, and success seems measurably within the scope of future probabilities. .
