The movement has become aggressive among the members of the Medical So ciety of the City Hospital Alumni of St. Louis, and the St, Louis Medical Society, through Its affiliated bodies of the State for the enactment of necessary legis lation for the establishment and en dowment of a State Institution for the cars and treatment of persons suffer ing with pulmonary tuberculosis. The matter is being taken up by com mittees from both organizations, the Committee on Public Health and Legisla tion of the St, Louis State Society or which Doctor George Homan is chairman and Doctor R. JL Funkhouscr and Frank L. Henderson members. The interests of the Alumni Society are in the hands of a special committee, of which Doctor Homan is also chairman and Doctors Ludwig Bremer, L. H. Behrcns. Francis Reder and R. B. H. Gradwohl arc members. Doctors William Porter, F. J. Luti and VV". G. Moore have also been active in the work. . ... The two organizations arc wonting unaer resolutions unanimously adopted by each.. In speaking of tho plans. Doctor Homan said yesterday: "It may be interesting to recall the work done by th legislative and social committees of the two societies a year ago, when wo went before tho Legislature to ask for the necessary ap propriation. "The committees laid the matter first before the Committee on Eleemosynary Institutions, and Mr. January, one of tho members, prepared a bill which was final ly sent before the Committee on Appro priations. "IVe asked for $330,000. There were sev eral sessions of the committee, but owing to tha absence of one of the members, who was supposed to be favorable to the Idea, we lost by a vote of 4 to 3. "Wo believe that the State of Missouri should put Itself on equal fooUng with other States In the humane movement. "The medical societies of the State were never In closer alliance than now. Our organization Is strong and we propose that by the time the next Legislature Is chosen that every Senator and Representative shall have had this matter properly brought before him, that he .may be con versant with It In all Its phases. "All the branches throughout the Stato will seek to have the newly-elected mem bers meet before the local society and tho importance of this project fully explained. "It Is an unselfish work so far as the physician Is concerned, but It Is of the utmost importance to thousands of suf ferers from consumption. Massachusetts has spent more than half a million dollars In carrying on tho work. New York has appropriated 51M000 to start an Institu tion, and Missouri should take the matter in hand, and I believe will do so when tho. legislators icarn tne true value 01 too movement," WINTER WHEAT DAMAGED IN SOUTHERN MISSOURI. A Ij fence of Snow During? Freezes Al io rred Tops to He Frozen, but Hoots Are All night. REPUBLIC SPDCIAU Columbia, Mo., March 1. Tho monthly climate and crop report was Issued here to-day by the Missouri station as follows: Februarr averaged decidedly colder than usual in the central and eastern portions of the State, but In the western sections the de ficiency In temperature was les marked. The lowest temperatures occurred on the 1st, 4th and 11th. and at most stations in the northern sections ranged from lero to 10 decrees below. Very heavy rains occurred In localities In the Loutheast section on the 6th and 7th, hut over mucn tne greater portion or ine state tne pre cipitation up to th 26th was very light, many of the western and southern counties receiving less than half an Inch. in portions of the northeast section winter wheat was fairly well protected by snow and sleet, but elsewhere the ground was bare dur ing much the greater part of the month and In many counties the crop has been consid erably damaged. Except In the extreme south ern counties, however, there was but little al ternate thawing and freezing, and while the tops of the plants have been killed to a con siderable extent, the roots are not thought to be seriously Injured. In many of the southern counties where wheat was sown late and, owing to drought, made little or no growth during the fall, the crop Is In very poor condition, but In a con Kldrable number of the northern and western counties It seems to have held Its own and Its condition Is very near the average. Reports regarding-peach buds Indicate that In most of the extreme southern counties Mifliirh lire buds remain for a full cron If not Injured later, but elsewhere very nearly all of the budded peaches are reported killed, and a majority i me correponuenis eiate mat nniy a verr small portion of the buds on seedling trees have escaped. Cherry, plum and pear buds are also reported killed to a considerable extent in some locali ties. In a few of the extreme southwestern counties some plowlns has been done for oats and corn. IXLINOI9 WHEAT UNTO O MI SING, 'Development Almost Suspended tr the Rlsorona "Winter. REPUBLIC SPIX;IAI Sprlngfleld. Jll.. March 1. The Illinois climate and crop bulletin was Issued to day by the Illinois section of the Weather Bureau: The temperature for the month was consid erably below normal. The average dally de ficiency was about 6 decrees. Low maxima rather than low minima was the characteristic. The month opened cold, with minima below zero In tbe central and northern sections. Ex cept In the extreme southern portion, freezing temperatures and lower were recorded mostly during- the entire month. Precipitation was deficient. It fell mostly In the form of snow or sleet. The ground was well covered, little thawing ensuing, owing to low temperatures, until the latter "part of the month when a general thaw occurred, and the ground waii practically bare In tbe central and southern districts at the end of tbe month. The treneral condition of wheat Is unpromls Inc. The plant entered winter under unfavor able conditions, and development has been al most entirely suspended on account of rigor ous weather. Some fields are reported to be badly damaged, others winter-killed. Where the Jilant has teen covered with snow only con ecture Is offered with regard to present con dition. "While maxv favorable reports have been received., a considerable majority report ad vereely. Much damp, soft corn remains In the hand of farmers, and opinion Is freely expressed that considerable damage will ensue' when the weather moderates. Cara are scarce for mov ing the grain, and In some Instances It Is spoiling In elevators. A matter of concern In many localities Is vital seed for planting. Much of the grain was Immature before garnering, and experiment has shown that reliable seed will not be plentiful. Meadows and pastures are well nreserved In the northern district, and In portions of the central district, but the- outlook Is not jprom lslng In the southern tier of counties. In the latter locality young clover and timothy have been Injured by alternate freezing and thaw ing, and some old meadows hate been killed Apple buds ore believed to be unscathed, but all reports indicate serious damage to peaches. Stock has wintered well, but teed Is becom ing scarce in some localities. COXDITIOXS IX THE SOUTHWEST. Plowing- for Cotton nod Spring Crop Is Ilegnin. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. "Washington, March 1.

I find that it is excellent to restore the strength and do not think any woman should be without it. 1 am therefore pleased to give my testimonial. This frank letter from Mrs. Jensen should convince any nervous woman that Wine of Cardui is the medicine for her to take. That Wine of Cardui drives out weakness and makes it possible for her to become a mother without the unnecessary pain and suffering so many mothers endure, is a glad message to American wives. But the use of Wine of Cardui a couple of months before confinement removes all danger, banishes all trace of leucorrhoea and relieves the distressing weakness and intense nervous irritation. Wine " of Cardui also strengthens the female organs and makes childbirth very much easier. A perfectly healthy mother means a perfectly healthychild. You can only really appreciate what Mrs. Jensen says about Wine of Cardui restoring the strength by trying Wine of Cardui yourself. Wine of Cardui cures women of all ages, of all the ailments which afflict the sex. Your Druggist will sell you a $1.00 Bottle of Wine of Cardui and you can begin LOT No. 2.
