TOUGH THE BUTTON Real Thing Machine in Polk County, lowa, Politics. THE BOARD IS ABOUT TO ADOPT IT % Mo Legal Obstacle M I lit- 1-aiKt I.t-fciM liilui-t' inli«»riy.«'«l tin* Innovation. ' Special to The Journal. Dei Koines, lowa, Dec. 18. —Indications are favorable for the introduction of the voting machine into Dcs Moines and Polk county. The experiment made by the capita] city will be watched and if it it= successful there is no doubt iheir general introduction will follow throughout lowa. At a meeting Thursday, the Polk county board of supervisors will settle the ques iion so far as n relates to the county. Some time ago. the board appointed a committee of three to confer with the city authorities. As the result of this conference, the committee of the super visors will recommend to the full board the use of voting machines in the county, the purchase of machines sufficient to answer the needs of each precinct in the, city ami county and an^agreement with ihe city council for an equitable division of the expense between city and county. The only obstacle in the way of adop tion lies in the possible failure of the supervisors and the city council to come to terms as to a division of the expense. There ate twenty-nine precincts in the city aud twenty-two precincts in the county outside of the city. The super visors want the city to pay for the ma chines in the city precincts, leaving them to stand the cost of the machines for the rural precincts. This the council will not countenance and Jnsist on the county bearing half the cost of the machines used in the city precincts. The supervisors also want the city to make the start and buy the firs: machines, as the city will have 'he first election, the municipal elec i ion the coming spring. However, there is reason to believe these differences will be compromised, as the wisdom of using machint-s to facilitate voting and counting is generally conceded by both the city and county politicians. In a legal way there are no obstacles to adopting the machines, the twenty-eighth general assembly two years ago having adopted a measure authorizing their use. County Auditor Fred A. Cope has cal culated that one machine will suffice for each precinct and that the machines will pay for themselves in ten years. A sav ing of $1,200 a year in election expenses would result, according to Mr. Cope. Persons interested in voting machines of different types are on the ground and are watching the outcome closely. The law provides for a voting machine com mission, to examine into the efficiency of any machine proposed for adoption. As yet but one machine has been examined ami reported on favorably. However, sev eral others will be submitted for examina tion, as soon as their proprietors are con \ inced the supervisors will act favorably. PASTOR FOR WAYZATA Hey. D. K.

COOK. 1 1 Brigadier General George W. Cook, Washington, D. C, writes: "As a number of my friend* have used Peruna for catarrh, with such good results, I can safely recommend it to all sufferers of like disorders." BRIGADIER GENERAL GEORGE W. COOK. DR. HSRTMAN SAYS Catarrh is the Scourge of the Nine teenth Ganfury. Have you catarrh? Maybe you have not; but do you know that a person may have catarrh of the head, catarrh of the throat, catarrh of the lungs, catarrh of the stomach, catarrh of the bowels, ca tarrh of the kidneys, catarrh of the blad der, and also the others pelvic organs? Are any of these organs affected in your case ? If so, the probability is that you have chronic catarrh. 3o many people think that catarrh is confined to the head. This is not true. Catarrh may affect any organ of the body. Thousands of people who have been sick a long time have catarrh, but do not know It. They have doctored for every imaginable dis ease but catarrh, and fiud no cure. FOOD ADULTERATIONS Xote of Warning From tlie'S. IJ. Com inJHHiuner'H Oilit-e In lie Smet. Special to The Journal. lie Smet, S. D.. Dec )b. -From recent analyses which the food and d airy depart ment has made of dirt'eivnt food products, it is evident thai al arge per cent of the articled sold by local merchants is adul berated to a greater or less degree. Three samples of strained honey which were being sold for the pure article were found, on examination, to be composed al most wholly of glucose, or corn syrup. With a little favoring to fool the public, these goods can be sold at much higher prices than they could be as glucose. The same is also true of sorghum. There sems to be but one way for the local merchant to protect himself in the purchase of any article of food, and that is to Insist upon a written guarantee of purity being given him with each class of goods by the wholesaler. Upon receipt of the articles he should send a sample to the state food and dairy department to be analyzed before paying for them; If they prove to be adulterated, he is then at lib erty to return the goode. The local merchant need not expect to escape prosecution if he continues to pur chase adulterated articles indiscriminate ly and dispose of them as genuine. If he purchases with a written guarantee he will at least show good faith and may save himself trouble if the goods should prove to be adulterated. NOLAN BRINGS CONTEST Dubuqne Democratic Senator Dissat isfied With Verdict of the Polls. Special to The Journal. Dcs Moines, lowa, Dec. 18. —Thomas F. Xolan, the present democratic senator from the Dubuque district, who was a candidate for re-election In November and was defeated by Colonel P. W. Crawford, has served a notice of contest. This will result in two contests being heard by the senate, the other being brought by James E. Bruce of Anita against Dr. J. M. Em mcrt, the democratic senator of the Cass- Shelby district. The action of Senator Nolan is a gen eral surprise. Many of his democratic friends In his district are urging him to desist, as they are convinced it will be useless. Crawford's plurality was 28. Nolan assigns seven different reasons for his action, relating to miscounts, prema ture closing of polls, and other proceed ings not in harmony with law. •'Duluth Short Line."

They have never thought that what they had been calling dyspepsia, or liver com plaint, or kidney disease, or female weak ness, is catarrh of these organs. If they did know that this was the case they would get Peruna and cure theinaelves. Peruna cures catarrh of any locality. If catarrh is in the head, Peruna cures, it; if in the stomach, Peruna cures it, likewise of the liver or kidneys or any other organs of the human body. Everybody can get a free copy 6f a book on catarrh and other diseases of winter by writing at once to The Peruna Medicine Company, of Columbus, Ohio, 64 pages, In structively illustrated.

New York, Dec. 18.—Eighty dealers of the flour trade met at the Produce Ex change yesterday and adopted, by a two thirds vote, motions that flour lacking any of.its constituent parts so that its baking I qualities are seriously Impaired shall not be entitled to certificate of grade, and that flour having any injurious foreign smell other than that of garlic, shall be graded unsound. The adoption of these measures does not imply a raising of inspection standards, tor the motive was solely the ruling out of impure Pennsylvania flour. Much of the Pennsylvania product is un sound this year because of the wet condi tion of the wheat from which it was made.

Yesterday the an nouncement was whispered from mouth to mouth that this is the same Lord Douglas who became known some years ago as the close friend of Oscar Wilde. Then an earthquake struck fashionable society, and as a result there was a gen eral closing of doors and a vehement de nial that he had ever been entertained within certain portals. When this same news reached the Metropolitan club the action of exclusion was taken. DEATH OF A CENTENARIAN. Watertown, N. V., Dec. IS.—MrB.
