CONGRESSMAN BOTKIN
I,
The Well-Known Kansas Statesman, Cured of
Catarrh of the Stomach by Pe-ru-na,
AFTER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS’ SUFFERING
More Evidence of Interest to the Millions of
Catarrh Sufferers in the United States.
I non j.d.' |
In a recent letter to T>r. Hartman, Congressman Botkin, of Winfield, Kan., whose
fame is a national one, says of Peruna:
My Dear Doctor: —“ft gives me pleasure to certify to the excellent curative
qualities of vour medicines —Peruna and Vunalin. / have been afflicted more or
less for a quarter of a century with catarrh of the stomach and constipation. A
residence in Washington has increased these troubles. A few bottles of your
medicine have given me almost complete relief, and I am sure that a continuation
of them will effect a permanent cure. Peruna is surely a wonderful remedy for
catarrhal affections." — J. D. Botkin, Congressman-at-Large.
CONGRESSMAN BOTKIN Is one of the |
most influential and best known men J
in the State of Kansas. Whatever he j
may nay on any subject will be accepted by j
the people as the truth. So famous a rein
edy as i't-ruua could not huve well escaped
the attention of sa famous a man. He not I
only has heard of the remedy, but he has j
used It and was relieved of an affliction of j
twenty-five years' standing, l’eruua is the j
one internal remedy that cures ehronle ca- |
tarrh. It cures catarrh wherever located.
This is a fuet that the people are rapidly !
finding out, but there arc still a large mul- I
tirade who need to know it.
Mr. Frank Richter, of Winona, Minn., says j
In a letter to The l’eruna Medicine Company.
“Asa remedy for catarrh I take pleasure !
lu recommending Peruna for catarrh of the •
stomach. 1 know what It Is to be afflicted j
with this awful disease and consider it my j
duty to say a word in behalf of the remedy I
whloh gave me such relief. Peruna cured j
me. and 1 know ii will cure any one else
who suffers from this disease. It gives me i
great pleasure to testify to the curative ef
fects of tills medicine. Peruna is a well
tested and frequently used remedy, and for
catarrh of the stomach it is unsurpassed.
"My catairh was principally located In j
my head and stomach. I tried many rente- j
dies without success. 1 tried several doc- J
tors, but they were unable to cure me. I
read of Peruna in the papers and five bottles
enred me.”—Frank Richter.
The gastric juice is secreted by the mu- j
cons follicles of (he stomacn. When this
juice Is normal it digests (dissolves) the food
without producing any disturbance what
ever. If. however, the gastric juice is not
normal, digestion causes many disagreeable i
symptoms. This condition is known as In
digestion. Peruna will cure this.

the way of a master key. While visit

to see the host unlock the gateway
| with a small key, which was hidden
in his seal ring, and further was sur
prised when the boat*unlocked his sec
retary with the same key. The Ameri
can was curious to know something
about the key. and was told it unlocked
I every door iu the house. Including the
wine cellar, the cases and the closets.
But this key was the only one that
would do this. The butler's key tin
; locked his domain, the housekeeper’s
key hers, but they could not unlock
each other's. The master key was the
only one for all. As he wore it In a
ring, he would always have it with
him.

Artificial Calf-Feeder.
What an awful disappointment it
must be to a calf to wake up some
morning and find its mother missing
and no warm breakfast waiting, and
how disgusted it must feel when the
farmer comes in a little later with a
pail of skimmed milk, straddles the
calf’s ueck, inserts his finger in its
mouth and tries to convince it that
drinking is the proper method of feed
ing from that time on. Happy would
be that calf if the faimer would pro
vide it with the feeding arrangement
here shown, and happy would the far
mer be if he did not have to waste bis
time in teaching the calf to drink. The
calf seems to get along fairly well‘un
til the farmer undertakes to withdraw
his finger and make the calf go it
alone, but then rebellion rises and an
upset pail is the result in some cases.
Once introduce the calf to this device
and he may bunt to liis heart’s con
tent without upsetting the milk. The
arrangement consists of a reservoir,
suspended from the wall, with a tube
leading to a block underneath, on
which is mounted a rubber nipple. As
the nipple is screwed on the block it

may be removed as soon as the feeding
is finished, or the entire feeder can be
taken down if desired. Henry B. Smith,
of Chauteaugay, N. Y., is the inventor.
Farm Separators. '
Butter makers kick on farm separa
tors, says the Northwest Farmer. Some
of the butter makers are making a live
ly kick against the introduction of the
farm separator. They might as well
kick against a stone wall, for kicking
will not stop its coining. There is only
one thing that will check its rapid in
troduction, and that is better skimmilk
from the creamery. Farmers are get
ting more and more determined to
raise good calves, and they propose to
do this with separator skimmilk. If
the butter makers don’t clean up their
pumps, pipes and tanks and give the
skimmilk a thorough pasteurizing the
farmer is certain to lend an attentive
ear to the farm separator agent, a sep
arator will be installed on trial, and
you can count on its staying. It will
then be too late to protest, for after a
farmer pays SIOO for a separator he is
quite apt to find a factory that will
take liis cream. Dairymen of experi
ence have found that the best of calves
can be raised on good separator milk,
and every intelligent butter maker
knows how to return it in good condi
tion.
Lawn Gras*.
While most of the seed stores sell
special lawn-grass mixtures* which,
perhaps, contain a half-dozen or more
varieties of grass seed, we doubt if any
of them will give better results than to
mix one bushel of Kentucky bluegrass,
a half bushel of clean redtop. or a
bushel in the chaff, one peck of sweet
vernal and one pound of white cloyer.
the above being amount for one acre.
The bluegrass is earlier than the red
top. and the redtop resists summer heat
better, while tbe fragrant, sweet vernal
is good both early and late. Have
tbe ground thoroughly pulverized and
made rich with about six hundred
pounds lawn dressing per acre, which
has more nitrogen and potash than the
usual superphosphates, and sow iu
spring as early as the ground can be
well worked, or sow in August. We
prefer tbe artificial fertilizer to the
barnyard manure for lawn, as being
free from weed seeds. The above mix
ture is also a good one for permanent
pasture.—New England Farmer.
Barbed-Wire Fences.
An animal will seldom go near enough
to a barbed-wire fence to be badly dam
aged by it. if led up to it when first put
out. and allowed to learn bow sharp the
barbs are by a slight prick from them,
which will do no real damage. But
sometimes one •will push another
against it. The greatest danger is from
a barbed-wire that is not in place, but
has become detached from the post and
has a part of its length lying on the
ground to entangle the legs of any ani
mal or person walking along and not
noticing. See that all such fences are
made safe before any animals are let
out there.
I,inetd Oil Cake.
It is an English tradition that some
thing like a century ago a farmer used
the refuse from a linseed or flaxseed
oil mill to manure a fieid, and then
turned sheep on it. Going there a
while afterward he found that the
sheep had eaten the grass and the ma
nure as well, and had made a better
growth than those in other fields. This
is said to have been the beginning of
feeding linseed cake to sheep. Possi
bly it is true, for some of our most
beneficial discoveries have been made
in ways as accidental or providential
as this.—Exchange.
Covfrine Tree Wonn-Is.
Anioug popular conclusions arrived
at from the general experience in using
various preparations, such as shellac
varnish, liquid grafting wax. tar and
white lead naint. for healing wounds
mr.de in prruing trees is that, taking
all things together, nothing seems to be
better than covering the wounds with
common lead paint, somewhat thick,
and that grafting wax is a close sec
ond. Wax is the superior to paint j n
the matter of healing, but it does not
last so well, nor is it so convenient to
apply.
Stronc Constitutions.
Many animals lack in constitutional
vigor simply beca their parents
have been allowed to get too fat, and
hav* not had enough exercise to keep
their muscles firm and the digestive
organs active, while ethers have failed
because of the feeder 'laving gone to
the opposite extreme, failed to feed
enough, and in giving exercise nave ex
posed them to cold and hard usage.
The box stall or pen is bet’e-r for the
breeding animal than closer confine
ment. and as much good food as they
will eat better than a scanty ration, but
it should not be wbat is called carbon
aceous or beating and fattening food,
but such as to produce muscle and
growth of frame. Out-of-door exercise
is needed, but that does not mean
standing still in a cold wind or storm
until chilled through, or being turned
out to drink Ice water to chill the in
ternal organs and the unborn offspring.
—Massachusetts Ploughman.
Early Pasturage.
The first grass in spring is watery and
has very little nutrition in it, partly be
cause it is usually to be four.d on the
low land®, where the better grade of
grasses do not grow. Yet we used to
like to get cattle and sheep nto it as
soon as it was large enough to give
them a fair bite, as such grass is poor
at the best, and almost worthless after
it gets tough aud harsh. But we nevet
depended much upon it as food for
them, excepting for its succulent quali
ties. We fed as much hay and graiD
the morning before we let them into
pasture as if they were to remain in the
yard. Then we took them in early, and
at night they were fed at the barn
again. The green grass loosened the
bowels, and perhaps we had a little
more milk, or a little thriftier growth,
but it made the change from hay to
pasture more gradual, and they Seemed
to relish it, especially if the roots were
all gone, as they usually were likely tc
be at that season. That was before the
days of the silo, and if we had one
well filled we might think it better now
to feed ensilage, and let the bog grass
grow to be used as bedding, or to be
used as a covering for strawberries or
spinach, or as a mulch for some other
crops.—American Cultivator.
Killing Brush.
see much said in onr Western ex
changes about the value of the Angora
goat to destroy brush. If that is tbeir
strong point we do not want them. It
used to be the fashion to advocate
keeping sheep to kill w eeds and briars.
They will surely do that if kept on
them, but we never knew any one to
start with sheep with that as his main
incentive, who did not come to the
conclusion that there was no profit in
sheep. If we want good wool aud mut
ton the sheep must have something be
side briars to feed upon, and if they
choose to take a few briai's or weeds
as a soi't of . condiment with the other
food, well and good. So we think if
Angora goats are kept to kill brush en
tirely they will furnish but little mo
hair and a poor flesh. Give us the old
plan for killing brush, mow 7 in July,
burn in August, and then let sheep pick
a few of the tender sprouts if they
want them the next spring.—American
Cultivator.
What Result to the Soil?
I would not seem to undervalue sta
ble manure, but it is a mistake to sup
pose that land must grow poor when
we cease to feed everything upon the
farm. It is not necessary to sacrifice
all income for the rake of keeping up
the soil. Now 7 that we know more
about the composition of the soil, we
know that productiveness depends in
great degree upon the presence of or
ganic matter iu it, aud not solely upon
stable manure or commercial fertiliz
ers. The ideal condition would be one
in which a goodly number of live stock
could be kept with profit on nearly ev
ery farm, but the cattle feeders of most
fertile Eastern valleys must give up a
farm scheme that makes fat cattle and
wheat the only cash products. The
list of cash crops will be made longer,
and clover, peas and sods must be free
ly used to supplement tbe manure.—
Farm and Fireside.
Care of Horses.
Before the horses are put to work
very hai'd in the spring after a winter
of comparative idleness their grain ra
tions should be gradually increased,
and the work should not be too bal'd or
tbe days too long at first, and this last
is a good rule for man as well as beast,
but tbe man should have sense enough
to look out for himself and his team.
See*that the harness is properly fitted,
clean and oiled until it is soft and plia
ble, that it may not chafe anywhere
and thus avoid sore shoulders and sad
dle galls. A little water at the middle
of the half day’s work will always be
relished and may prevent drinking too
much at one time and thus lessen the
danger of colic.—American Cultivator.
stock Farm Fence*.
It is very necessary to have good
fences for all our stock, and the fence
question is a very important one in re
gard to expense, but it does not make
any difference how expensive it is, it
is one of the important items in suc
cessfully raising young stock. You can
not give them the proper care if they
run everywhere, especially iu the yard
around the house, or, worse still, the
neighbor's house or premises. It is
very necessary to have your stock just
where and when you want it. It is
verj necessary to have numerous yards
and fields so as to separate young and
old stock and fattening cattle and the
weaker ones from the stronger.—Kan
sas Farmer.
Little Hav Goes a Lone Way.
Hay for work horses should not be
fed in excessive amounts v-n they
are upon the road or worked bard.
Sniffing with hay when required to ex
ert their strength or speed is liable to
cause serious and lasting injury. It is
also without doubt a more frequent
cause of heaves and windbreak in
horses than in anything else. When
either of these troubles exist* it so ag
gravates the disease as to endanger the
animal's life. At morning aud noon
only very little hay should be given,
with enough grain to keep up the
strength and flesh of the horse, but at
night a liberal amount of hay should
be fed.—Farm and Home.
The Broadening Corn Belt.
rrobably the production of corn has
been increased in North America by the
development of early maturing varie
ties during the past twenry-fire years
more than It has increased in all the
rest of tbe world from all other influ
ences. The corn belt has broadened
hundreds of miles by this means, and
the end is not yet. remarks National

The whole world is brought into in

the insurgents in Luzon, should tariff
troubles with Russia arise, should there
be mutterings of discontent in China—
the news is flashed under the ocean aud
in a moment the President is informed
of the facts. But this great network
of nerves is employed in two different
ways. Not only does it tell the head of
the republic whnt is going on throughout
the earth, but these nerves also carry
back the orders that set the forces of
the nation to work. From the White
House the President issues orders to the

structions in the most minute detail to
liis diplomatic officers engaged in deal
ing with foreign powers. The whole
world is his checker-board'.
The office through which all these
things are done is officially known as the
telegraph and cipher bureau, but it is
popularly called the War room. It ad
joins the President’s private office, and
he can step to it at any moment of the
day or night. During the Spanish war,
indeed, he spent many a night sittjug on
a big leather couch in the war room, as
he waited with Secretary Long or Gen.
Corbin for dispatches from the front.
Great maps showing the entire world
cover the walls of the room. They are
dotted with little flags, each indicating
a regiment or a ship. Whenever a mes
sage is received bearing news of any
change in the position of vessels or of
troops the corresponding Hag is moved.
Thus at any moment, by looking on the
maps, the President can tell where the
American army and navy are scattered.
Service Started in 1877.
The telegraph office at the White
House was organized in 1877, and was
planned originally as a means of putting
the President in quick communication
with the various government departments
that are distributed over the city. Early
in President Hayes’ administration, how
ever, the Pittsburg riots arose, and fed
eral troops were sent to check the mobs.
It was necessary to keep in close touch
with the soldiers, and arrangements were
made with the telegraph companies for
private wires that extended from the
White House to the scene of the trouble.
That was the beginning of the present
system, and it has been developing ever
since. When the Spanish-Aiuerican war
broke out it was foreseen that special fa
cilities would be needed to keep the Pres
ident informed of military movements.
Tiie office was completely reconstructed,
and Col. BenjaThin Montgomery was
placed in charge. He was given a staff
of half a dozen telegraphers, the most
expert men that could be found. \ In
choosing them it was necessary to take
only men of the most unimpeachable
character.
The war room probably did its most
brilliant work during the hostilities with
Spain. The signal corps, which is allied
with the telegraph and cipher bureau,
had a force of its bravest men with Shat
ter when he-landed near Santiago. They
captured the cable that links Santiago
with the Fnited States by way of Santo
Domingo, and they connected it with a
flying telegraph wire of their own. As
often as the troops advanced, the daring
telegraphers would follow them up with
a temporary wire strung on bushes.
The courage of the signal corps men
was the admiration.of the army. Seated
right at the firing line, with temporary
outfits on their knees, they kept coolly
at work while a deadly hail of lead rain
ed all around them. It is interesting to
note that, while signal corps men are
usually classed as non-combatants, they
lost a larger percentage of men from
wounds during the Spanish war than any
other branch of the arnty. It was by
their daring, however, that they managed
to establish their magnificent telegraph
service. They sent dispatches from the
field around Santiago that reached the
White House in five minutes after being
filed. It was common for the President
to receive messages from his command
ers in fifteen or twenty minutes. In this
way Mr. McKinley was constantly ad
vised of how the campaign was progress
ing. and by the aid of the war maps and
the moving flags, he had always before
him an immense panorama of the San
tiago campaign that gave him a more ac
curate view of the situation than was en
joyed by many of the generals who were
personally on the ground.
During the troubles in the Philippines
the same system of rapid communication
is preserved, but the transmission of mes
sages is somewhat slower, as many relays
gre necessary in the long cable route.
King Edward, who. after the injury to
his knee, was obiiged to stop bicycle rid
ing. has resumed that pastime, and has
taken up fencing as being the best <
antidotes to the increase of sedentary
work necessitated by his new state du
ties.

the pain, and you sleep well.
Friends ask' “what is the cause?"
and the answer comes in pitying
tones, nervous prostration. It came
upon you so quietly in the beginning,
that you were not alarmed, and when
sleej deserted you night after night
until your eyes fairly burned in the
darkness, then you tossed in neavoua
agony praying for sleep. .
Mas. A. Hart let.
You ought to have known that
when you ceased to be regular in your
courses, and you grew irritable with
out cause, that there was serious
trouble somewhere.
You ought to know that indigestion,
exhaustion, womb displacements,
fainting, dizziness, headache, and
backache send the nerves wild with
affright, and you cannot sleep.
Mrs. Hartley, of 221 W. Congress St.,
Chicago, 111., whose portrait we pub
lish, suffered all these agonies, and
was entirely cured by LysUa E. Pink
ham’s 'Vegetable Compound: her case
should be a warning to others, and
her cure carry conviction to the minds
of every suffering woman of the un
failing efficiency of Lydia E. Pinkhain’a
Vegetable Compound.
Opening for an Argument.
Two members of a scientific society
were discussing recent discoveries
while at an annual reunion of the or
ganization. One was an elderly bache
lor and the other a maiden of equally
mature years.
“I dare say you have noticed,” re
marked the lady, “that in St. Joseph,
Mo., a Chicago electrician not long ago
succeeded in restoring an unmistakably
dead cat to life?”
“Yes,” he replied, “I have noticed it
with sorrow and indignation. If he
wanted to prolong the life of some
creature, why in the name of all that
is righteous and of good report did he
select a cat?”
What she would have said in re
joinder could only be conjectured from
her flashing eyes, for at this moment
they were summoned to refreshments.
MOTHER AND DAUGHTER.
The Wife and Mother-in-Law of Mr.
Charles Keys.
Clarissa, Minn.. April 15.—i Special.)
—No family in this vicinity is better
known or more universally respected,
than Mr. Charles Keys, the local school
teacher, and his estimable wife, and
motlier-in-law. For a long time Mrs.
Keys has been in ill health. Recently,
however, she has found a cure for her
ailments in Dodd's Kidney Pills.
“1 cannot speak too highly of Dodd's
Kidney l’ills. or of what they .have
done for me,” said Mrs. Keys. 4
“My life was miserable, my baPk al
ways ached, also my head. 1 was trou
bled with Neuralgia in the head and
face and suffered extreme pain, but
thanks to Dodd's Kidney Pills, all those
aches and pains have vanished like the
morning dew, and it now seems that
life Is worth living. 1 consider l,)odd's
Kidney Pills a God-send to suffering
humanity. They may rightly be named
the Elixir of Youth.
“While speaking of my own case and
the wonderful benefit I have received,
I might also add that my mother, who
is now an old lady of 74 years and who
lives with me, has been troubled more
or less with aches and pains, as is nat
ural with one of her advanced age.
When she saw what Dodd's Kidney
Pills had done for me she commenced
to use them herself, and she says That
they have done her more good than
any other medicine she has ever tried.
“This testimony is given in the hope
that others who may be afflicted as we
were may see and read it, and be bene
fited by it.”
What Mrs. Keys states in her letter
can be verified by reference to any of
her many friends in this neighborhood.
Dodd’s Kidney Pills have already a
wonderful reputation in Todd County.
Nothing lias ever cured Bright’s Dis
ease. Diabetes or Dropsy but Dodd's
Kidney Pills.

Spring Cleaning Made Easy.
Much of the terror of spring cleaning
may be avoided by good management.
Settled weather should be selected for
the work, and everything necessary pro
vided beforehand. Ivory soap will be
found best for washing paints, floors aud
windows; it is harmless, and very effec
tive in making the house clean and fresh.
