MUSIC SUBDUES BEASTS
-Familiar March Renders Unman
ageable Animals Docile.
Special to The Journal.
Chicago, Aug. 30.—Bandmaster William
M. Merrick, of the Forepaugh & Sells
Brother, circus, demonstrated at the aft
ernoon performance yesterday the influ
ence of music over dumb brutes. When the
elephants were in the ring one of the
animals became unmanageable. When the
ringmaster learned this he signalled the
bandmaster, who immediately directed his
musicians to play a familiar march, dur
ing which all the animals in the ring be
came docile. Said Mr. Merrick:
During the thirty years I have been in the
circus business I have not known when
a fractious animal may not be controlled by
the influence of music. During my experi
ence I have subdued elephants, horses and
other animals with a particular air with
which I knew they were familiar. Music
charms the animals as It does the ordinary
human.

CATARRH
Catarrh has become such a common
disease that a person entirely free from
this disgusting complaint is seldom met
with. It is customary to speak of Catarrh
as nothing more serious than a bad cold,
a simple inflammation of the nose and
throat. It is, in fact, a complicated and
"very dangerous disease; if not at first, it
very soon becomes so. -
- The blood it quickly contaminated by
- the foul secretions, and the poison through
the general circulation is carried to all
parts of the system. S'"} y'. .
Salves, washes and sprays are unsatis
factory and disappointing, because they do
] not reach the seat of the trouble. S. S. S.
j does. It cleanses the blood of the poison
. and eliminates from the system all catar
rhal secretions, and thus cures thoroughly,
and permanently the worst cases.
; Mr. T. A. Williams, a leading dry-goods mer
chant of Spartanburg, S. C, writes: " For years
I bad a severe case of >_j_HHClto_ *

GAMBLING AND DRINKING
TOPICS FOR THE METHODISTS
English and American Members Dif
fer a. to Which Theme Should
Be Made Uppermost.
mew York Sun Special Sarvlem.
London, Aug. 30.— the Archbishop
of Canterbury, officially or otherwise, .end
a representative to the Ecumenical Meth
odist conference, which opens Wednesday? j
This question, according to Bishop J. W. ,
Hartzell, is attracting the attention of
many of the delegates who are in London j
for this most important meeting. Said i
the bishop:
The question is important because of the j
meaning which the outside world will place j
on the Archbishop of Canterbury's action. i
Invitations were extended to all the churchea !
to attend. Acceptances have been received |
from the Baptists, Congregationalists, Pres- '
byterians and the Salvation Army. The pri- j
mate of all England alone has not been
heard from. We anticipate that the confer
ence will have an important bearing upon the
future growth of the church. It ought to
tend to increase fraternity, dissipate the
remnants of antagonism and organize into
unions the smaller bodies on the different
contingents. The aggressive propagation of
Methodism will be carefully considered by the
gathering.
Gambling and intemperance will have a
prominent place in the program of the
j conference. The former topic, the Amer- |
I icans, intrusted with a 'revision of the
I program, proposed to eliminate, greatly to
I the surprise of their English brethren,
who think the question of gambling one
of the most, burning. On the other hand,
the Americans are eager to devote as much
time as possible to temperance.
Rev. John Bond, secretary of the confer
ence, said that the feminine member, of
the American church particularly were
anxious to push temperance to the front.
He said: 7:,-777 ,>*7' ',
The churches are not so anxious. Appar
ently the United States knows no other
classes than drunkards and teetotalers,
whereas we have an immense number of
moderate drinkers who rarely overstep the
bounds of temperance.
The Americans hope that the conference
will formally declare against ministers'
drinking. English sentiment is divided
upon this question. The conference will I
sit for twelve days and Bishop C. M.- Gal
loway will preach the opening sermon.
The American and Canadian delegates who
are here to attend the conference number
200. Chile, Brazil and, Mexico are reprc
-200. Chile,, Brazil and Mexico are repre
sented in the conference for the first time.
The Americans will take a prominent
part in the conference. ..'.'}•""*,

HAIR-RAISING JERSEY NARRATIVE
John Marko's Misbehaving Spirit
Scuffles With His Brother-in-
Law and Gets Scalded.
new York Sua Smeolal Service
Perth Amboy, N. J Aug. 30.-One of
the best authenticated ghosts in the
ghost history of ghost-ridden New Jer
sey has been driven away by the efforts
of Father Januschek of the Slav Roman
Catholic church here.
For several years John Marko, a Hun
garian laborer, lived in a two-story tene
ment in Mechanic street. He lived as a
just and hard-working man should. Three
months ago he died. So far as may be
learned from the reticent survivors of his
family, there was no one in the communi
ty to whom he bore ill will. Nothing
was left behind which might have been
expected to tempt him to come back.
But he came back. He came back early
and often. Marko's ghost at first at
i tracted attention by low but strenuous
moans. The departed laborer had a pe
culiar voice, and even in moans it could
be distinguished from any other voice
that the neighborhood had ever known.
The first time those moans were heard
everybody in the neighborhood knew that
Marko had come back because something
| in the place to which he had gone did not
suit him.
Two weeks ago last Sunday night mat
ters came to a crisis, The tenement is a
double house. There are four apartments
in the building and Gene Matlock,
brother-in-law to the ghost, lives in the
upstairs flat on the other side of the
double house. A week ago Sunday, when
Mrs. Matlock was in a shed at the back
of the yard, Gene started across the yard
to speak to her. He was grabbed by the
throat and thrown flat upon his back.
He shouted for help as he fell, half
strangled. Mrs. Matlock came from the
shed and saw him lying before her with a
shadowy figure kneeling on him. She ran
into the house, took a kettle of hot water
from the stove and went back again.
She found Gene and the thing wrestling
around all over the yard. .'*:.7.;
Scalded the Goblin.
"What is the matter? Get off my hus
band or I will scald you to death!" she
cried in Hungarian. '*'■ 7
The face of the thing which was kneel
ing on Matlock's chest was turned toward
her for a moment. She recognized tho
countenance of her departed brother. He
said nothing that either she or her hus
band could understand, and because, as
Mrs. Matlock painstakingly explained to a
reporter, she loved a live husband a
great deal more than a dead brother, she
waited until the ghost, was uppermost
and then tipped out a pint of hot water on
his back. The thing fled, shrieking, up to
the back door of the flat which the late
Marko had occupied and passed in with
out opening the door. At least that is the
story Matlock and his wife told. .
•'I tell you," asserted Matlock, with no
apparent sign of anything but the utmost
sincerity, "it was Marko, and I see him
dead and in the grave. He come up and
grab me by my throat. My wife she get
the water and make hot his back and he
cries 'get to hell out!' He got into the
door on the right side hand and the door
no open when he go through. I hope I
am dead if I lie." •
"Tha's right," said Mrs. Matlock, calm-
BTha's right," said Mrs. Matlock, calm
•a "Are you sure," asked the reporter,
"that it wasn't a tramp or somebody who
| was sneaking around the yard?"
j Both the Matlocks laughed scornfully.
j The very idea was preposterous, they said,
■ with many shakes of the head and grunts
of disapproval. Gene Matlock was in-'
clined to be indignant that his judgment
in the matter could be doubted. He told
how a few nights after the fight in the
back yard he and four friends were play
ing cards in the kitchen of his flat and
there came a rapping at the door.
"Come in," he said.
No one came in, but the rapping con
tinued. . 777,
"Come in, or I knock your head off when
you open the door," said Matlock.
The knocker did not accept the invita
tion. Mrs. Matlock, who had gone to bod,
; called out that they had better look out
; what they said, because the knocker might
Jbe the ghost. The card players went to
i the door and listened. They heard low
j moans and recognized Marko's voice..They
| debated for some time about the advisa-
I bility of opening the door, and at last one
j of the party, who was "great excit," threw
j the door open. Then all Aye saw the
j ghost of Marko. He stood in the hall at
I the head of the stairs and pointing a fore
i finger at them that looked to be eight or
; nine inches long in the lamplight, said
i nothing, but faded out of sight. The finger
was the last of him that faded.
The card party stopped right there. The
j Matlock's guests started for home and did
not say when they would call again. The
good folk themselves sat up all night by
i the lamp. They said they heard footsteps
j in the empty house next door and that
they heard the ghost muttering to itself.
Priest Called In.
The next day Matlock went to see Fath
er Januschek. The father told him that
the best way to prevent a ghost from in
terrupting a card game was to refrain
from gambling. Matlock said that there
seemed to be much justice in the priest's
view of the matter, but please, wouldn't
: the father come and see what could be
done about the house?
Father Januschek said that he would.
j Holy writ, he said, teaches that there
i are not only spirits of good, but that there
j are also spirits of evil, and it might be
| that the ghest of John Marko was a spirit
of evil. He had once or twice heretofore
driven out, evil spirits and he was willing
to try again. He went to the house with
I a vessel of holy water and made a cross
| upon every door and window and blessed
I the house. Then, according to the small
girl before quoted, he "came out in the
j street and "holied the whole row."
No one has • seen or heard ,of the ghost
! <?ince. "The "Matlocks are'quite satisfied
j that it has gone for good and have discon
tinued their somewhat expensive practice
of keening a light burning all night.
RICH GERMAN HUMOR ;
| United State* Fomenting Trouble for
Territorial Gain!
New York, Aug. 30.— G. F. Baer, presi
dent of the Philadelphia & - Reading sys
tem, who has just returned j from Europe
tells of a remarkable impression which
he avers is general throughout Germany:
Germany i*» watching with interest the de
velopment of the troubles in South Africa
and Central America. The interest is not be
| cause England is engaged in war in South
Africa nor because'the South "American re
publics are having a little more than their
usual ". amount of - revolutionary excitement.
The real reason, when 1 found it, startled
me. , The Germans believe that all these
troubles have been fomented by America for
the express purpose of obtaining possession
of both disputed territories. They, say that
I America brought about the Spanish war sim
| ply to get Cuba, Porto Rico and the Philip
pines, and that this country will not be sat-
I isfied without holdings in - Africa \ and South
America. They look upon Cuba as actually a
part of the United States, and.do not believe
i America. They look upon Cuba as actually a
part of the United States, and do not believe
this country will eyre give freedom to that
Island.
