nr. John Moore Hale, 330
West 7th St., St. Paul,
Minn., writes:
" I was taken with La Grippe
and So'atica. I had the best
doctors but without much relief.
A friend of mine recommended
Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and
nerve remedy, and I dropped the
doctors and bought a bottle of
the Nervura. Before it was a
little over half gone, I felt that
I was on the mend, and I took
three bottles and to-day I am a
well ir.an. I struck it.
" Dr. Greene's Nervura blood
and nerve remedy has made my burden lighter by building up my run down
system. The ailment of greatest hindrance to me was kidney trouble, which,
as those who suffer from it know, absolutely unfits a man for business, espe
cially if he Li of a nervous temperament. Dr. Greene's Nervura has built me
up so that I can safely pronounce it the superior of any proprietary medicine
I ever used. I recommend it to all."

Structure to Accommodate 800 Stu
dents*s*-Arrangements Made for
Enlarging Facilities.
The officials of the District building de- j
partment have Just completed their review
of the plans and specifications for the pro
posed new Business High School, and the
specifications will be ready for the printer
within a day or two. It is understood the
District will soon begin advertising for
bids for the construction of the new build
ing, and that the contract for erecting the
structure will be awarded about the 1st of
The specifications will require that the
building shall be completed within eighteen
months after the award of the contract.
Hence, it is expected that work will begin
immediately after the letting of the con
tract for its construction, and that it will
be finished about the latter part of 1905.
The new building, together with the sur
rounding parking, will occupy all of north
square 39G, bounded by 8th and !>th streets
and Rhode Island avenue and R street. The
appropriation for the structure is $168,000,

Joseph Heitger Makes Statement Re
garding Mention of His Name
in the Case.
A dispatch from Bedford, Ind., last night
sayB: Detectives at work on the mystery
of the murder of Miss Sarah Schafer,
teacher of Latin in the Bedford schools,
believe that they have established a mo
tive for the crime. They are satisfied that
the tall man in the long overcoat that
was seen lurking in the vicinity of the
Johnson house is the murderer, and that
the man is the one who was annoying Miss
The police believe that this man was
enamored of Miss Schafer, and that she
had repulsed him. Brooding over his pas
sion for the young woman, determined to
have an interview with her, the police
think the man liad made up his njind to
kill her if sha again resented his ad
vances and watched for her as she left
the Johnson boarding house. He kept on
the opi>oslte side of the street until Capt.
Alexander had entered the Windstandley
House and then overtook her at 14th and
L streets.
What Heitger Says.
At Bloomington, Ind., today Joseph
Heitger, whose name has been mentioned
in connection with that of Sarah Schafer,
called on a representative of the Indian
apolis News and stated that the talk that
he was in any way connected with Miss
Schafer is absolutely false.
"You may say," said Heitger, "that I
met Miss Schafer only once. I never was
at her house to call on her. I talked to
her only in the ptesence of Miss Knox,
and we talked of George Shaw and James
Dodd, two Elkhart boys whom she knew.
I never wrote a word to her in my life,
nor received a word from her, and have
hardly spoken to her since Thanksgiving
night, when I met her at the basket ball
game. I will return to Bedford at once
and would not be here now had I known
of such suspicion.
Heitger is a member of a prominent
Bedford family, a college graduate and
an athlete.
During his examination by the officials
Saturday Heltgar said that on the even
ing of the murder he left the home of his
father, Joseph C. Heitger, at ?:4."i o'clock.
He arrived at the old library building on
14th between J and K streets before any
of the basket ball players, whom he coach
ed. arrived. He said he believed he was
there a few minutes after 7 o'clock. None
of the players was positive at what minute
arter 7 they arrived. Heitger declared he
left the building some time near 8 o'clock,
going to his home at once and. changing
his clothes, kept an evening engagement.
Chief Russell Gathering Information.
A dispatch from Ijouisville, Ky., says:
Chief of Police M. C. Russell and 8heriff
Smith of Bedford, Ind., in company with
former Chief Jacob Haager of the Louis
ville police, had a conference here today
with a woman who two days ago notified
the Bedford police that she could probably
throw some light on the Sarah Schafer
Chief Russell left for home late this after
noon, going by way of New Albany. He
said the woman with whom he was in
conference three hours had given him
much information about Miss Schafer and
her friends and acquaintances. He said
the information was very valuable, but
that he could not divulge it until he had
liad further conference with the authori
ties at Bedford. H< refused to give the
woman's name.
Heitger Was Shown to the Door.
A dispatch from Elkhart, Ind., says: Mrs.
Frank Gross of Chicago, a sister of Miss
Schafer, who was murdered at ? Bedford.
Is now in Elkhart to attend MIbs Scha
fer's funeral. Mrs. Gross said a letter
written by Miss Schafer complaining of
annoyance by a man while calling on her
gave the name of Heitger, saying that
architect of the new Business High School.
The style of architecture employed will be
a type of the English renaissance. The
building will acommodate about 800 pupils,
and there will be room on the square for an
enlargement of the structure so as to ac
commodate 400 more students in case the
additional building is needed.
Some of the Accommodations.
In addition tw a large number of class
rooms the structure will contain a large
gymnasium and assembly hall, special lab
oratories. bath rooms, locker rooms, recep
tion and office rooms and retiring rooms for
the instructors.
The building will be constructed of red
hand-made brick, with trimmings in In
diana limestone. It will be three stories
high, with a basement. The structure will
have a main frontage on Rhode Island ave
nue of 17S feet, and smaller entrances on
8th and lKh streets, the former for the boys
and the latter for the girls.
Gray or pink granite will be used for the
base course of the building, and the belt
courses, columns' and other enrichments
will be of limestone. The main en
trance of the building shows a central por
tico - effect, with a group of eight stone
Ionic columns, carrying the entablature
with the name of the 'building thereon, and
with an elaborately ornamented cartouche
above. Just over the main doorway will be
; an elaborate balcony, carried on heavy
I brackets or corbels, ornamented with carv
ing. The entrance and vestibule doors will
be of quartered oak, with French plate
glass windows.
The entrances on 8th and 9th streets will
be treated in much the same manner as the
main entrance, excepting that'brick pilas
ters with stone caps and bases will be used
instead of stone columns. The flat roof of
the building will be surrounded by a brick
and stone parapet wall.
In the basement will ibe installed the heat
ing apparatus.! In tlUs part of the building
also will be locate^ the janitor's living
rooms, blcycH rooms, toilet and wash
rooms, and tWft two bath rooms, each of
which will be fitted up with five combina
tion shower baths. s

Occasion Marked by Scottish. Songs,
Poems and Stories?The Addresses
a Feature.
Hoot mon!
Yesterday was the 143th anniversary of
Robert Burns' birthday and right royally
did the Caledonian clansmen of the District
observe the occasion. "Wl' merry sangs and
friendly cracks," they gathered around the
banauet board at Hotel Reuter last evening
and, according to custom, paid loving trib
ute to their country's poet.
It was the annual reunion and banquet of
the Caledonian Club, whose feasts of reason
and flow of soul have Ions since been recog
nized as conspicuous events in the District.
An oil painting of Burns draped with flags I
hung prominently on the wall and the fes
tive board and cheery air right well sug
gested "Sit round the table weel content,
an' stir about .the toddy."
Dr. Thomas Miller, chief of the club, pre
sided as toast master, in which duty he
cleverly wove wit and humor when he call
ed for songs and speeches.
The banquet was shorn of customary for
malities, the program of addresses and
music being given as the courses were serv
ed. A carnation lay at each guest's plate
and about fifty guests were seated.
Mr. William Jardine reverently invoked
the divine blessing, with a bit of Scotch
verse. Mr. John Russell followed with the
song. "Bonnie Scotch Thistle." which was
sung without accompaniment and with the
real Scotch flavor.
Music was the feature of the evening and
upon the presentation of each speaker he
was greeted with the song by the company
"He's a jolly good fellow." Solos were ren
dered by Mr. Harry L. Shackelford of Burnt
Cork Club fame: Mr. James Painter and Mr.
William Gardiner. The songs were inspir
ing and provoked hearty applause.
But it was when the notes of the piper
fell upon waiting ears that the enthusiasm
of the company reached its climax. Pipe
Major David Brunton entered the hall play
ing "The Campbells Are Coming." and he
was cheered to the echo. Mr. Jardine play
ed very sweetly a number of favorite Scotch
airs on a clarionet. Prof. Saltsman render
ed several piona solos, and Noah Zeller
added variety to the program by a song In
German, which caught the humor of the
Besponses to Toasts.
The toasts were well selected, instructive
and interesting. The responses were heart
ily applauded, and a decided relish was
added by the clever Interpolation of an
original poem. "Scotland and Burns." by
Mr. J. H. Stevenson. It was a beautiful
bit of verse, whose theme was discussed
with a charm and expression peculiar to a
Scotch poet. Mr. Stevenson reads an origi
nal poem at each annual reunion, and this
year's contribution added much to that
genius and oratory for which he Is already
The following is the program of toasts
and their responses:
"The day we celebrate, to the immortal
memory of Burns." Clansman "Scottie"
Smyth: "The Caledonian Club." by Robert
L. Cameron, the oldetrt member of the club,
who was suffering with such a cold that he
could respond with but a few word*; "The
land o'cakes, may her future be as glrv
rious as her past." Clansman W. C. Burr;
"Our adopted country, the home of thou
sands of good Scotsmen and better Ameri
can citizens Clansman Robert Armour, a
veteran of the civil war, who served in the
70th New Y-irk Volunteers; "The President,
the executive, not the ruler, or a free peo
ple," Clansman A. E. L. Leckie, and "The
Lassies: She electa without voting and gov
erns without law," was responded to very
neatly toy a song. "Green Grows the
Rashes," by Clansman James Cutworth.
The Addresses.
An address was made by Mr. James Dun
can of the American Federation of Labor
which was inspiring to every Scotsman
present. Mr. Duncan said he represented
over two m llion American citizens, of whom
a liberal percentage were Scotch or of
Scottish descent. He had traveled to many
Catarrh Cured By Herbs
It is known among doctors, as well as their patients, that the chief
ingredient of most so-called catarrh and asthma cures is cocaine which
relieves the patient by deadening the pain, but which does not cure. In
stead, it is injurious. Thousands upon thousands of people who are
addicted to the cocaine habit acquired it bv using some so-called asth
ma or catarrh curc which contained cocaine.
Dr. Loremtz's Mucous Membrane Bitters,
discovered by Dr. Lorentz, the well-known specialist, is composed of
pure medicinal herbs only, and is guaranteed to be absolutely free from
cocaine and dangerous drugs of any description.
TO-NI-TA will cure any case of catarrh of the. head, throat, lungs,
stomach, kidneys, bladder and female organs. Thousands of doctors
who have had the prescription brought to their attention, say it is a
Godsend to suffering humanity and the only cure for catarrh that they
have found safe to prescribe.
A trial bottle will convince anyone that TO-NI-TA will absolutely
cure catarrh of any description. It acts directly on the mucous mem
brane, driving the poisons out of the system, as it is a mild laxative. It
stimulates and purifies the blood, tones up the heart action, invigorates
the brain, and makes blood, muscle and nerve.
"TO-NI-TA is the most perfect tonic and stimulant that has ever
come to my notice. I became familiar with the prescription from which
TO-NI-TA is compounded, a number of years ago. through mv pro
fessional association with Dr. Lorentz. Relying upon his advice I be
gan using TO-NI-TA in my own practice, and with the most signal
"I have treated every variety of disease in both men and women
which attacks the nmcous membrane, and I believe there is not a case
so severe, no matter of how long standing, that TO-NI-TA will not re
lieve and cure.
"In lung troubles, in nervous disorders, and wherever a condition
approaching general breakdown is indicated, TO-NI-TA is uniformly
effective. I always prescribe it.
"I will avail myself of any opportunitv to answer correspondence
relative to this medicine." HARRY M. SCHALL, M. D.

6ongs. One could never get away fiom
"Auld Lang Syne." He regarded Burns
"A man's a man for a' that" as a living
principle that marked the Scotchman in
whatever portion of the globe you find him.
It was a truism that had been translated
into many of the world s languages Mr.
Duncan's remarks elicited prolonged ana
hearty applause. ? . ..
Clansman Smyth's remarks were replete
with wholesome truths of Burns Kreat
heart and love of nature. His tribute
showed careful preparation, and was a lov
ing testimonial to the noble bard.
Prof. Leckie's tribute referred to the two
great characteristics of Scottish life?love
of country and love of God. His remarks
were made more forceful by a most pleas
ing delivery and impressive mien. He gave
illustrations indicating the beauties and he
roic grandeur of these traits of Scottish
life, and said that Burns and his cjans

Enthusiastic Beport on Their Conduct
Made by Win. A. Sutherland,
the Agent in Charge.
The bureau of insular affairs, War De
partment. is in receipt of the first report of
William Alex Sutherland, the agent In
charge of Filipino students in the United
In August of last year the Philippine com
mission passed an act providing for the
education of a number of Filipinos In the
United States at the expense of the in
sular government. The boys were care
fully selected by examination, both mental
and physical, from thirty-three provinces,
and English was one of the studies in which
they were obliged to have good grade*.
Great enthusiasm throughout the Phil
ippines was aroused by the sending of these
students to America, and many pleasing
attentions were shown them both at their
home towns and In Manila before embark
ing. A special operatic performance was
given in their* honor, and on the morning
of their departure a meeting was held at
which addresses were made by Gov. Taft.
Commissioners Smith and Tavera and
prominent Filipinos, after which they
marched to the wharf in a body to the
music of half a dozen brass bands and ac
companied by civic organisations and thous
ands of citizens.
Ninety-six students embarked October 10.
Both the passengers and ship's officers
spoke in praise of the conduct of the stu
dents. The party reached San Francisco
November !>. and on the 11th left for south
ern California, where they are *o remain
for the winter, distributed among the public
schools of the southern counties.
It was thought best not to subject them
to the rigors of a northern winter at once,
but next summer they will be brought to
the middle states.
The report concludes with the following
"No other class of Filipinos whom I have
known have in any degree compared with
the Filipino students sent to America ut
their appreciation and gratitude for the
benefits conferrtd upon th^rn. for the for
bearance and patience shown them and tne
opportunities offered them for progress by
the government. I have reports front tlieir
teachers and housekeepers at every place
that the danger is not that they will study
too little, but tl>at they will study too much.
They were uniformly successful in the ex
aminations held by their schools, just prior
to the holidays, desrite their late entrance
to the schools and the short time that they
have been studying their texts in English.
They are all working with splendid serious
ness for the accomplishment of the lofty
purposes for which they are in this country,
and I only ask that as good materia! be
furnished in the future; that not one young
man or young woman In whom the fullest
confidence may not be placed and whose
fitness, mental and physical is not of the
very highest order be sent by the govern-'
ment for education in the United States.
There is no scarcity of such material, and
if it be sent I feel that there can be no
question as to the final result.7
