else had failed.
" I feel it my duty to try to help those
suffering from skin diseases. My case
was a rery bad one, covering all of one
side of my face and had reached my
eye. I had two or three doctors pre
scribe without any relief. They said
my disease was Epithelioma. I was
then advised to go to one of onr hos

Ready to Take Eussla's Abandoned
Space at World's Fair.
St. Louis. Mo., Feb. 17. Upon the
heels of the announcement from St.
Petersburg that Russia will abandon
her proposed exhibit at the Louisiana
Purchase exposition, Mr. Hajime Ola,
assistant commissioner general from
Japan, announced that every foot of
exhibit space that is given up by Rus
sia will be applied for by Japan. Com
missioner Ota states that the commis
sion has ample exhibit material either
here or on its way from Japan with
which to fill the additional space. In
fact, one of the difficulties that con
fronted the commission from the first
was the question of not how large they
could make their exhibit, but how
best to confine it within the space al
lotted. No confirmation of Russia's announce
ment had reached the fair officials yes
terday from official sources. No offi
cial attaches of the Russian commis
sion are here at present. Meanwliile
the proposal of Commissioner Ota can
not be made or considered, except ten
tatively. It IS A PAINKILLER.

The State Becomes Weary of
Trjing to Convict Her.
Winterset, la., Feb. 17. Mrs. Mar
garet Ilossack, who has been convicted
and sentenced to prison for life for the
murder of her husband in laOO, is to
day a free woman. On motion of the
state the case in reappearing was
stricken from the docket and the de
fendant discharged.
The crime for which Mrs. Hossack
was given a life sentence at Anamosa
is one of the most atrocious in crime
annals. Her husband, an aged man,
was murdered while he lay sleeping.
She aroused the household, saying
some one had entered the house and
struck the blow. A day later she was
arrested at her husband's grave, tried
and convicted. A new trial was grant
ed and a disagreement resulted. A
third trial resulted similarly, and the
state concluded it was a waste of
funds to again try the case.
Towne Quits Silver.
New York, Feb. 17. In a speech be
fore the Democratic club, former Sena
tor Charles A. Towne has declared, in
He "Didn't Know It Was Loaded.
The coffee drinker seldom realizes that
coffee contains the drug Caffeine, a seri
ous poison to the heart and nerves
thereby causing many other forms of
disease noticeably dyspepsia.
"I was a lover of coffee and used it
for many years and did not realize the
bad effects I was suffering from its
"At first I was troubled with indiges
tion but did not attribute the trouble to
the use of coffee but thought it arose
from other causes. With these attacks
I had sick headache, nausea and vomit
ing. Finally my stomach was in such
a condition I could scarcely retain any
"I consulted a physician; was told all
my troubles came from indigestion but
was not informed what caused the in
digestion, so I kept on with the coffee
and kept on with the troubles too and
my case continued to grow worse from
year to year until it developed into
chronic diarrhea, nausea and severe at
tacks of vomiting so I could keep noth
ing on my stomach and became a mere
shadow reduced from 159 to 12S pounds.
"A specialist informed me I had a
very severe case of catarrh of the stom
ach which had got so bad he could do
nothing for me and I became convinced
my days were numbered.
"Then I chanced to see an article set
ting forth the good qualities of Postum
and explaining how coffee injures peo
ple, so I concluded to give Postum a
trial. I soon saw the good effects my
headaches were less frequent, nausea
and vomiting only came on at long in
tervals and I was soon a changed man,
feeling much better.
" Then I thought I could stand coffee
again, but as soon as I tried it my old
troubles returned, and I again turned to
Postum. Would you believe it, I did
this three times before I had sense
enough to quit coffee for good and keep
on with the Postum; the result is I am
now a well man with no more head
aches, sick stomach or vomiting and
have already gained back to 147

Daughter of Louis James the Bride of
a Millionaire.
New York,- Feb. 17. Although Millie
James, daughter of Louis James, the
actor, looks young enough to play the
part of "Sarah Crewe," the fourteen-year-old
heroine of Frances Hodgson
Burnett's play, "The Little Princess,"
she was married yesterday to Edward
Stachelberg, the millionaire sigar manu
facturer. The ceremony took place in the par
lors of the Savoy hotel, at 1 o'clock.
Only relatives and most intimate friends
were present. The marriage was sol
emnized only by the civil contract by
Justice Dugre. Maurice Mendham, the
banker, accompanied Mr. Stachelberg to
the hotel.
There were no set decorations, but a
few vases of roses and lilies and a few
bowls of violets had been set about the
large parlor. Miss James wore a simple
gown of pearl gray cloth, made with a
gathered Paquin skirt, and a full blouse
waist, trimmed with white silk and
heavy lace. Her hat was of pearl gray
cloth, trimmed with white ribbon, lace
and. violets. She carried a very large
bouquet of violets and lilies of the val
ley. The bride's family was represented by
her brother. Leavitt James, and her
half sister. Gertrude Slaughter, daugh
ter of Marie Wainwright. One of the
groom's brothers and two of hi3 sisters
were present, but his mother and two
other brothers and another sister are in
In refutation of the story that the
wedding had been postponed from two
years ago on account of the opposition
of Mr. Stachelberg's parents, the groom
showed a cablegram from his absent
mother congratulating him and wish
ing him Joy.
There were about twenty guests,
among them Dr. Carleton Simon, Louis
Houseman, Mr. and Mrs. M. Regans
burg and Mr. and Mrs. Endicott Par
dee. An elaborate breakfast was served,
and the bridge and groom left for Flor
ida. They will reside in New York, but

by her portrayal of a little girl in
"Lover's Lane."
Miss James was seen in Topeka in
"Lover's Lane" as well as in one or two
other productions.
Legislation Can't Remedy It.
London, Feb. 17. The crisis in the
cotton trade was the subject of a ques
tion in the house of commons today in
reply to which Home Secretary Akers
Douglas, in behalf of the government,
said that although .it was recognized
that the situation undoubtedly was the
cause of anxiety, it could hardly be
amended by legislation respecting gam
bling in futures. The government, he
edded, could not introduce such legis
lation. The best remedy would be to
increase the sources of supply in vari
ous parts of the empire.

Genoa. Specialists have been called

That Is Now Situation In Water
works Case.
Mayor Bergnndthal Makes a
Sensible Talk.
Danger In Taking Hasty Action
In Matter.
Question Is Whether Plant Can
Be Restored.
Tonight's council meeting promises
to bring forth some developments in
the waterworks situation. Unless pres
ent plans miscarry, two resolutions will
be introduced, one by S. T. Howe pro
viding for art examination of the wa
ter plant by hydraulic engineers, and
one by C. V. Wolf notifying President
Street of tha water company that the
city will not take the water plant for
J620.000. Wolf is not real sure about
his resolution; it is a little too radical
even for him.
Mayor Bergnndthal is back from his
Chicago trip, and has taken a firm
stand against any hasty action by the
council. He stated his position fully
to a State Journal reporter today as
follows :
"So far it seems premature for any
body to declare in violent language
that the waterworks are no good; that
the city sljould cease all negotiations
for the purchase of the plant. It is
natural that such an attitude should be
taken by a good many people, because
of the disastrous experience with the
fire of February 13. This failure of the
water company to give the city good
pressure no doubt cost the town about
$100,000, and there is naturally much in
dignation. In the heat of the moment,
people are likely to say things which
are a little bit too radical.
"This attitude of extreme excitement
will pass away before long, and the
city will be able to consider the situa
tion more rationally.
"It will come to be recognized that
there are several matters in which it
is possible to agree upon a statement
of facts. First, there is no denial of
the fact that before the June flood the
water pressure was generally satisfac
tory. Second, that since the flood, it
has been generally very unsatisfactory.
Ttird. that if the pressure can be re
stored to what it was before the flood,
the city is in favor of buying the plant.
It twice voted for city ownership and
once voted to pay $620,000 for the plant.
"It therefore remains only to decide
whether the plant can be restored to
the condition it was before the flood;
whether repairs can be made which
will assure the city that it is getting
Just as good a plant as it bargained for.
The officials of the Water company are
positive that when they complete the
repairs which they have commenced,
they will give as good .water pressure
as they did before the lodd. Wrhy not
wait and see if they are able to do
this? Then if the city wants to hire an
expert hydraulic engineer to examine
the plant and assure the city that it
is all in good shape, and able to do
.Excitement Caused by Mis Fay'a
what was expected of it, it would be a
very good thing to do.
"It is ten months since the June
flood, and it seems that in that time
the company should have completed
the repairs on the plant. The company
claims that it has worked as fast as
possible; that it has been delayed by
inability to get material. You can be
lieve this excuse or not, as you see fit;
the fact remains that the city has been
unable to hasten the repairs.
"And right there is the fatal weak
ness of private ownership of the water
works. If the city owned the plant, it
could itself assume the responsibility
for repairs. If a private corporation
owns It, the city has no way to compel
the company to do anything. The best
wav for the city to be sure of getting
good service from the waterworks is
to own them.
"If the water company is able to
make good its promise to restore the
plant to the condition it was prior to
the Hood, the city should carry out its
part of the bargain, and buy the plant.
If the company is not able to make
good the defects, it should be com
pelled to reduce the price of the plant
by a 'sufficient amount to enable the
city to make changes which may be
declared necessary by a competent
hydraulic engineer.
"1 think that the idea of having a spe
cial meeting of the Commercial club to
talk the matter over is a good one. What
the business men of the city think about
the matter will have treat weight. I be
lieve that m a case of this kind the busi
ness men will not be swayed so much by
momentary passion as are the masses of
the people. We all want to do what is
for the best interests of the city and
there is no use in getting excited about
"I heard about this fire about five min
utes after I reached Chicago last Satur
day. The telegram sent to me telling
of the fire was handed to me just after I
reached the city. It was a great catas
trophe and I fully appreciate the feeling
of our people that something must be
done to protect the city, and done at

Anna Eva Fay, who Is at the Craw

many seconds she stood motionless,
during whRu time only the suppressed

Then Miss Fay spoke to her manager:
"The body Is under the second boat."
Turning, she re-entered the carriage
and was driven across the bridge to the

The coroner was summoned. He or
