How Ignorance and Super* atition go Hand in Hand. A curious sight might have been seen In England a couple of ccnturies ago. At Whitehall or some other royal resi dence a little group of people would slirinkingly await the coming of the king, in order to be "touched for the evil." The specific "evil" was scrofula, end it was the popular belief that scrof ula could be cured by the royal touch. Hence the common name for scrofula was King's Evil. Nowadays we know that scrofula Is a disease of the blood and that even were there magic in a kingly touch, no ex ternal treatment could cure scrofula. The medicine which cures scrofula must deal with the blood. It must be able to eradicate and eliminate the poisons which corrupt the blood and breed and feed disease. When the blood is cleansed, the pimples, blotchcs, boils and other eruptions disappear, ulcers and sores are healed aud the flesh becomes souud and healthy. THE RIGHT WAY to cleanse the blood from scrofula is to choose that remedy which has cured thousands of people who suffered from scrofula in its most previous forms. I am using a good many of your medicines in my practice," writes Dr. Joseph Fike, of Lost Springs, Marion Co., Kansas. "Ten years ago there was an emigration from Rusland to this country and there was a lady in the company who was badly affected with that dreadful disease, scrofula. Her mouth and throat were in an awful con dition, and there were lumps on the out side, below the jaws, the size of a hen's egg. Other doctors had been called ana they said it was a fatal case. I felt confident that none of my remedies would benefit her any. It came to my mind that Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery was recommended for such cases, so I went to the drug store and bought one bottle and gave it to her to use as directed. Five bottles cured her and she is well to-day. She is married now and has three healthy children." Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov ery judged solely by the cures it has effected is without doubt the most pow erful and most perfect blood purifying medicine of the century. It is a radi cal remedy. It goes to the root of the disease. Some preparations containing mineral poisons such as mercury are offered as cures for scrofula. These medicines only suppress the symptoms •f disease for a while aud give the skin Quarantine Removed. Missouri Valley is without a single case of smallpox. This afternoon Dr. Hugh Tamisiea, who has had charge of the smallpox cases at the J. R. Anderson home in the west end, re ported to the health authorities the entire convalescence of all the cases under quarantine and recommended that the same be removed this even ing. All the carpets, bed clothing, etc, in the infected house have been burned, the house and entire premises thoroughly disinfected and now all danger from the Bpread of the con tagion is passed. 1'ierce Welch, who is working for the F., E. Company in south Omaha, Sundayed with Missouri Valley friends. George Coulthard returned this morning from Gretna, Neb., where he had been called by the dangerous sick ness of David Richardson. He says when he left Gretna it was only a question of a few hours when David would die. Mr aud Mrs Haus Larson are Omaha visitors today. Mrs Amen who has been quite sick for several days, is much better today. The famous Jones County Calf case now has a rival. The latest aspirant for similar honors is "Taylor Town ship's Steer case" in which C. U. and F. W. Myers are involved in a legal controversy with Wm. Quinn concern ing the possession of three steers, Quinn striving to secure possession of the cattle through the medium of re plevin. The case was given a jury trial at the Harrison county district court now in session, but after ballot ing about 23 hours the jury concluded they couldn't conclude and in accord ance with their decision the court ordered their discharge. Just what the additional developments in the case will be is a mystery at present. BoitN—To Mr aud Mrs A Briggs Monday April 29th a girl. Frank Brandenlf who for several years past has been interested in bus iness with Wm Branderiff in New Jersey arrived in the city this morn ing and will remain here several days visiting his parents Mr and Mrs Branderiff. lie has disposed of his business interests in the East. W II Feiisler is putting a cement sidewalk in front ol his Fourth street residence. I00W of clearness, but after a time thi suppressed disease like a smothered fire breaks out with a new violence. It is the uniform testimony of those who have been cured of scrofulous dis eases by the use of "Golden Medical Discovery," that the cure is permanent. I In many instances the testimonial to the cure" has not been offered until the lapse of several years proved how thoroughly and lastingly the medicine had done its work. No class of people are more grateful for the blood purifying power of the "Discovery" than women whose faces have been marked and marred by pimples and other eruptions. The smooth skin and clear complexion which come back when Golden Med ical Discovery" has swept the blood clean of its corrupting poisons, are a source of unfeigned delight to those who for years have had their beauty marred by some form of eruptive dis ease. Beauty begins in the blood, and the first step to beauty is to cleanse 1 the blood of the corrupt ing impurities which weaken the body and be foul the flesh. THE SCOURGE OP CIVILIZATION. From half civilized or unsanitary countries come the plagues which deci mate the teeming popula tions of the Orient. Sani tary science and medical skill have banished the plagues from among our selves, but civilization has its own scourge in that form of scrofula which attacks the lungs and is popularly known as con sumption. Plagues are not per sistent. They appear and disappear again lor years. Scrofula of the lungs or y/fc consumption is a persistent disease. Every day of every year it gathers in its victims one-sixth of all deaths from disease being attributed to consumption. Dr. Pierce's Golden Med ical Discovery cures scrof tila wherever it finds it. It eliminates the scrofu lous poison from the blood and so the organs which are fed by blood are re lieved from the scrofulous poisons which destroy them. Obstinate, deep-seated coughs, bronchitis, bleeding of the lungs aud similar dangerous forms of disease are perfectly and permanently cured by "Golden Medical Discovery." "Dr. Pierce's medicine has not only benefited me greatly but it has done wonders for my two sous," writes Mrs. M. Ilartrick, of Demstcr, Oswego Co., N. Y. Both had scrofula. I have lost two daughters in less than five years with consumption and scrofula. My eldest son was taken two or three years ago with hemorrhage from the lungs. It troubled him for over a year. He took Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and has not had a hemorrhage in over a year. My younger sou had scrofulous sores on his neck had two lanced, but has not had any since he commenced to take your medicine." ABSOLUTELY RELIABLE. "Golden Medical Discovery" can be absolutely relied on as a safe and sure medicine for diseases caused by a scrof ulous condition of the blood. It cures disease of skin and scalp, eczema, salt rheum, tetter, scrofulous sores and swell ings, as well as scrofula of the lungs and other diseases having their origin in a corrupt condition of the blood. Accept no substitute for "Golden Medical Discovery." There is no other medicine "just as good" for the cure of scrofulous diseases. FREE TO ALL.

The Western Hail Mutual Insurance Company has broken all the loss pay ing records and has made the smallest assessment of any company for the 14*00. This Company paid all the loss es within thirty days after sending out the annual assessment September 21,1900. This places the Company in the front ranks and entitles it to tke confidence of the best agents and a large share of the Hail Business. We closed the year 1900 without an unpaid loss or loss in litigation, which speaks well for the careful selection of risks and the prompt and liberal pay raent of losses. Agents wanted. Letter From Frank Harris. The following letter was written by Frank Harris to Ins mother to be read at the Art Club: ROME, Italy, April 12, 1901.—My Dear Little Mother: You ask me, What is art and I ask vou, what is life? One just as easy to answer as lj the other. Ark never in one In stance 111 all this world, meant ttie 8-iine thing to two men. To each man it means something different than it, does to another, but about the only thing I have ever heard that will give my idea of art is found in the words of Billion in Ins translation of "The Kasidah" of lluji A lid 11 El Yezdi, when he says, l'o seek the True, to glad the heart, Such is the Lay of the Higher law, Whose difference the man's degree— The man of Gold, the man of straw." In those few words, dear little mother, you'll find as good a definition as you'll ever see, of what art. is. "To seek the True, to glad the heart." To seek the true is, of course, the first, but do not forget, your "to glad the henrt." But you'll find if t.he truth is found, the heart is glad. The only trouble is, when the people at large who a so spellbound in many cases by Mie immense technique of some artist, they imagine it is the "truth'' they see, when in many, oh so many cases it. is r.ot, hut a mighty blast of technique, and the people cry out, a grand artist! All the trouble is they don't, know where the "responsive cud" of art. is It's t.he xoul, and nvuiy, many people when their eye is pleased with a painting, cry art, and when their ears are pleased with a song they cry, art. A painting or a song that is one of art" never is per ceived through the eye or the ear, but through the soul. I can think of nothing better to explain just what I mean, than to tell you of a parable that Mat Miller credits to one of his old India:: friends. 'Once there was a man who was far uned lor his "grunt." It, was so like that, of a hog's It was nearly impossible to tell them apart, so the man started oit giving exhibitions of his "hog grunt," when in the course of his trav els he chanced to meet, with one of those wise Hindoos. The man "long on grunts" billed the city for one his exhibits and charged tut a small pence to hear himself and was always met by largo crowds The wise old Hindoo, thinking that it would rve his purpose in explaining to !m- pupils a point as to what people did aud did not want, billed the same city at the same time, and promising the people something that, was more like ttie grunt, of a hog than the other man's and as his exhibition would cost nothing, of course, the people all flocked to him, and when they were all seated HI Ills place of performance, he brought forth f) real pig, and pulling its ear the pig began to grunt and grunt, hard, but the people cried, fake! fake! It wasn't what, they wanted. They wanted the imitation grunt and not the real, so back fo the man with the imitation they went." So it is in art. People do not seem to want the real, but rather the imita tion, and they are in most cases like those who heard the real grunting of the pig. They cry take when they have the real and when they have the imitation they cry art. So it seems. I have in front of me a large picture of Johannes Brahams. Year after year that grand old man worked and libored with true art and the public pushed his composition to one side But Brahams is dead and today there are those who worship at the altar he left, as will in years to come, "all." So do not worship the man but love and worship that which he leaves "behind." You say in your letter, you are study ing the life of Angelo. It is wpll, but don't put BO inuoli time 011 his life as you do on what he left us. The study of his life will be but the life of some other man. We all live neatly the same life, but we ail do not leave be hind such as he did. Now, mother, you'll find after you have studied your art far enough that there is no difference between a paint ing and a composition of music or in a poem or some grand book, they are as ''like are two blue skys." When you hear some composition which has a few "runs" in it, don't cry out art, be cause the runs may be some cheap wishy, washy trash that have no more effect on the soul than a pin would against a mountain, but although it may "tickle" the ear that is no reason it is food for the soul and so it is in punting. When you see sume painting that is full of "runs" don't imagine that it is art. It may have art and "runs" too, yet never miBtake the one for the other. In the first place, a painting is but a suggestion it's not real. When you look at some roa'velonsly painted por trait, it makes no difference how great the master hand, you well know that the person is not there. You know it's but the suggestion of the person, so for that reason don't let the so called "runs" lead you to believe that It is a person. I have in mind a painting of Hardy's the American. It. is a portrait of Mr. C. II Bawdwin, the first president of the B. Y. M. C. IT. and as I think of It I smile. I have seen people by the score stand in front of it and cry art! art! until they were throat-sore, but to me it was anything but art. Now, I'll tell you why. In the first place, there is no charm to it As a picture it is perfect bu' the shine on tbe shoe, the little blue veins in the hand, the li't'e speck on the tie, are all painted with just the same careful brush as is tbe eye or tbe mouth. Well, if you know that it isn't Mr. B-.wdwin and it's only an impression of him, I really don't care if the shoe does shine. What I want is the "shine" in the face, and few men have ever lived who could paint and paint in "detail" and yet have the face retain the character. In that painting of mine notice how the tie and the coat are worked in and you'll really see what 1 mean. When you stand in front* of a Van Dike or a Rubens or an Angelo, or some of those, your eye goes at once to some "oue" spot of the painting and even if you know absolutely nothing of art, yet nine times out of ten that spot, will be the face. You'll very seldom see tho hand and other details tinted 111 with the same care that you will the more important parts. Now another thing on art. Never like Rubens because it is a Rubens never like a Beethoven symphony be cause it a Beethoven never a Wag ner opera because Wagner wrote it, but instead, like it for what it contains, and not for who painted or wrote it. One of the things I like most of all I ive seen hero in Rome is a figure of Christ being taken from the cross, and I have no idea who did it, but I do know it is modern. Now there is no one who loves the old school more than I. yet I really don't see why a rain em't love both schools Some people there are who have an idea that because a thing is modern it is trashy" but when I see or hear any thing that gives me rest when I am tired, or gives me peace when I am worried, or comforts when I am trou bled, that is all I ask. I care not if ii.'s modern, classic or ancient. So it is in all art. Now most people love St. Peters church because it Is St.. Peters. I don't I like it for what it. is. Yet strange as it, may seem there is another church here I prefer to St Peters It is Saint, Giovanni in Ga terano and it's there I always go when I want rest.. Yesterday afternoon, af ter I had worked hard all day and things didn't, seem going right, 1 stopped work and went up thee stayed only an hour or so, then 1 came liHCk and, mother dear, you have no idea how it rested me. Hie church is one founde 1 by Constantino in 304 and is the most important church in all It.aW. It's like all the other churches here, is just, oue mass of art. It would take me a year to tell you all there is in there yet there is such rest and p»ace there, that I always go there when I am tired. There are three or four heads that 1 love, and really sometimes it, seems as if that cold, cold marble had a soul, and you wonder why it, doesn't, speak. But really it does speak and so much clearer and better than it would were it to use common words. It speaks with bigger meaning than it ever mid if it used words. But I can't tell you of all that's there so I'll not try to tell you of any. Now mamma, I do not know how far along you are with your "art study" but this is the key-note of all art and it makes no difference who nor what they are. You will never see any more in a painting, yon wil never hear any more in a piece of music, than you take to it. So if one expects to see something he must take something to it. You can't expect a person who never had a fine feeling in his whole life to stand in front of the "Transfiguration" of Angelo's and see anything in it. You can't expect a person who ha? never given a-kind word or a kind thought to anybody, to fcear a Beethoven son ate or a Mozart •ymphony and expect them to feel anything in it. They take "nothing" it and expect to take something away, but such is not the case. It you hive something to take to a work of art, when you go away from it you will find it has grown. It has given you some new idea, perhaps some bet ter thought of life made you see where you haven't treated your fellow man as you should, or perhaps it has opened within a vast "something' that was there, but was asleep. But to see anything, the first thing to do is to take "something" with you. Now, don't mistake that something. It does not consist of knowing how to paint or how to play, but of thinking good thoughts, of doing good deeds. I am reminded of a story told on the late llob Ingersoll. He was one of the greatest lovers of music our day has known and on being asked why it was that he, who couldn't tell one note from another, or kaew absolutely nothing of music, should be so fond of it, answered, "My friend, do you like ike V" Tbe friend did, but he could not see the connection between a cake and a Chopin nocturne. Kut Ingersoll asked again, "Can you make a cake? Toe idea struck. $0 it is one doesn't have to know how to paint or to play to love art, but they do have to build themselves up along lines of apprecia tion. When one sees some grand building like St. Peters, or the Trinity II Boston or the Library in Washington they see but the whole scheme of art Both in painting and music it's the same. In a composition its just so many blocks put together and the camposition is the result. The scheme is just exactly that of building a house and so it is in painting, just putting together of so many lines. 'Tia said that only two things are •wd in the grandest of painting, "a straight line and a curved line." A genius takes them, puts a soul back of the two lines and a Sistine Modonna is the result, or another genius builds up a few cadences and a Heroic Sym phony is tbe result. But don't forget the last part of my "art text." "Whose difference tbe man's degree the man of gold, the man of straw." Don't always look among the men of gold in art suob as a Ruben, or an Angelo, or a Wagner, or a Mozart, but rather look the the cradle that Christ used when a nune. If you see in it the rest jou child. Now, really that's all right, and want don't dislike it or be ashamed to I don't see why they shouldn't have •ay so because some haud that had the cradle, but they dou't stop there, not a master's technique did it. One They bring the hay that was in the of the things I love is a painting called manger that Christ was born in. Now, Solitude by Browning. I have no really it's pretty hard to go the hay, more Idea who Browning, the painter,' yet oh well, if I go St. Paul's three was than I have ot Benale but 1 love jumps and tlioso three coirespouding that painting because it is so lilted springs I can go ike hay, so down with rest, and Benale has a lovely goes the hay little thing that I like to play. Now.l it You II hnd that in nature you have faces of God people just take long christians opera. So, mamm 1 dear, look WKLL TALKS OK ItOME ROWK, Ita'v, April 15, 1901.—When you come to Rome, come with the in ten'ion of believing all you Hre told but, don't eat any iNh for at least, six months before ym arrive for when you get hare they'll dish up to you some of the real thing. In fact some of it will be so "fishy" it, may make vou sea-sick. But 1 nelieve it all I have become so used to being "conned" that it is easv fur me. I have hongM at, least, a dozen lfurent, guld ir cks in at least a zen different MHM-S. I have had it all but the "Green good*.' I11 fact, I can think of nothing better than Daniel Dtly'x iinous saying of, "I am easv. Ive hot them all from the gol 1 brick to the short change If I've missed anything, I beg its pardon So you see it's easy for me. But for worldly man like Dr. Warren or Mr Amen or some of those, I suppose it would be a little hard, but, oh well, 1 was boru in Iowa so I've got my repu tation to uphold. Here is an easy one to start on: When St. Paul was beheaded out side of the city walls where now stands the famous St. Paul's church "they" say that when his head fell from the body it bounced like a foot ball and each time it struck the ground it cried "Jesus." As soon as the words were out of his mouth a spring of boiling hot water rushed up through 1 he earth. It bounced a second time and a spring of cold water sprang forth. It bounced the third time and a spring of ice cold water came out. It only had three springs. I often won der if it had sprung the fourth time what kind of water it would have been. Today only one spring remains and that is the cold one—I do not know what ever became of the other two. Really, I don't see any need of finishing up a wonderful cause likeSt Paul's was with a story of that kind But—oh well, I believe it, only, as 1 before said, some person not filled with the same deep piety as I might have a hard time to stand for three springs. The average man can stand one but three—. Oh well, I believe it. Here is a real easy one. We are told that Gregory the Great once presented to some foreign ambassadors a hand full of earth taken from the arena of the old Coliseum, a relic of great worth, that they might take home to their sovereigns. But the ambassadors were "long on" dirt at that time so with great haughtiness they refused the land, when to their surprise Greg ory began to clone hia hand and squeeze the dirt and sure enough drop after drop of blood began to fall from between his lingers. Twas the holy blood of the martyrs. The harder he squeezed the more the blood began to flow untill—. Well, I'll quit. That may be hard for the worldly but she's easy for me. I don't remember just how long the cruel game of the arena had been stopped before Gregory be came the Pope but it must have been some time because he didn't die until after (100. Let me see. I think it was the Bishop Liberiua who had a dream, or rather a vision in which the Virgin Mary came to him and told him that he wa8 to build a church to her mem ory and it was to be built on the place on which on the morrow would be covered with snow. It was tbe month of August and a red hot one at that, but, well, it snowed the next day. and that's where the Sante Maria Maggiore now stands. Really that isn't half as hard to stand for as some of tbem, yet —well, I believe it. In tbe Sante Maria Magglore is kef seeni3 I know nothing of either, so never. Rome has a large piece of the true look at the name to see if it's good but cross. Mark Twain says he saw rather at the picture or the composi- ("enough '"V*' have built the ark with."
