SISTERS OF CHARITY
Use Pe-ru-na for Coughs, Colds, Grip and Catarrh-A Congressman’s Letter. In every country of the civilized world Fisters of Charity are known. Not only do they minister to the spiritual and intellectual needs of the charges commit ted td their care, but they also minister to their bodily needs. With so many children to take care of ■nd to protect from climate and disease, these wise and prudent Sisters have found Pertma a never failing safeguard. Dr. Hartman receives many letters from Catholic Sisters from all over the United States. A recommend recently rei-eived from a Catholic institution in Detroit, Micli., reads as follows: Dr. S. B.

INTERNATIONAL EXHIBIT HELD IN CHICAGO. This Year's Exposition Has Eclipsed Any Held—Annual Event Which Has Become of Wide Interest Through ont the West. Great interest was manifest all over the West in the show of the National Pure-Bred Live Stock Association given at the stoek yards m Chicago. There were representatives from every part of the West anil the exhibition of pure-bred live stock was the greatest ever seen in this country. This year’s show was a great step in advance of even last year. Iu the seven days of 1901 in which the exhibit was open several hundred thou sand Chicagoans went to 6ee it, and the railroad estimates showed that over 123,- 000 people from out of the city vis ited it. Tliis year there has been an enormous increase in the attendance, and the management estimates that there hare been nearly 400,000 visitors from other cities and States. There has been a great interest in bet ter bred stock in the West of recent years. Stock raisers have not been con tent to rear sqrub cattle, ns they have found the better bred stuff brings more money and is rfo more trouble to raise than the poorer grades. The settling up ef the West has had much to do with the change, as the ranges have been cut down and the vast areas where cattle roamed in thousands have been changed into farms and the western range cattle J .■ SHORTHORN COW “ROBERTA.” are slow ly but surely disappearing. With the removal of the western cattle there has come an interest in better bred stock, and the National Pure-Itrod Live Stoek Association is fostering this interest and encouraging stock raisers all over the West to engage in breeding high-grade stoek. The efforts of this association are PEUCIIEBON HORSES ON SHOW AT LIVE STOCK EXPOSPriON. already manifest, as large numbers of farmers who formerly were content to raise scrub stock are now raising the liest grades, aud nil because of the efforts put forth by officers of the association. The show was doubly interesting this year because of the handsome new Rec ord building just completed. This is a commodious exposition structure, suita ble to the needs of nn annual live stock show, a building that has been badly needed for some time. There is ample room in it and it has been built with an eye to affording the best possible exhibi tion facilities. The building is modern In every particular and is ornamental as well and cost SIOO,OOO. The structure was dedicated Governors’ day of the ex position, which took place Wednesday. That day was one of great interest, as Secretary Wilson presided at the dedica tory exercises and the Governors of many State*, were present. Secretary Wilson made an address and several farmers also nmde short talks. Chicago was crowded with men interested in live stock. Much interest iti the show was exhibited in Omaha, Kansas City, Sioux City and oili er Western packing centers. Educationally the international exposi tion has taken a foremost part in Amer ican institutions. Not only are the de velopments and tremendous advancement of the live stock industries of the United States nml other civilized countries re vealed iu miniate and practical demon stration. but tho great advantages to farmer, breeder, grower, exporter and consumer of a superior breed and quality are undeniably presented.

There is a bread plane of operation ar.d enlightenment for the agricultural col lege student in the experiment and de velopment of the natural forces in all sorts of farm products, the animal indus try forming one of the most important items, bat the actual world for such study is readily recognized in the interna tional exposition, with the result of the keenest appreciation and active interest.

At the rate of many thousands a month men are pouring into the Southwestern States and territories to find anew home where the sod is yet fresh and golden opportunities to accumulate wealth are to be found. In the past year it is esti mated that fully 300,000 persons went in to the Southwest. It is estimated that there were 300 new towns started in -Oklahoma and In dian territories alone during the paV. three years, and most cf them are in thriving condition. In the first place there were 8,000,000 acres of free land in these two territories to be fettled upon by the whites. This has been consumed, aud those settlers who are going in now do not hope to secure free laud, if they can but get it at a reasonable price. No more free laud remains to the home-seeker. The cheapest to be had ranges from $3 to $G an acre in Indian territory and Oklahoma, but Missouri and Arknnsas offer it at the low rate- of $1.25 per acre. One company in Boston has arranged for ’ _ purchase of 2,000,- 000 acres of tins cheap land, upon which they are going to plant orchards. Tho farmers and the fruit growers are coming from New England. Offices have been established in Europe, and colonists arc going to the Southwest from all parts of the world. Trunk lin?s leading to the Southwest assert that Oklahoma nnd In dian territories and Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas will support 20.000,000 *nore people than are at present residing there, and that it will give to all of them a good living and an easy life.

Jules Cambon. the retiring French ambassador to the United States, in an address to Columbia College students, said the bond of union in this nation as well as in France—both being of mix ed races—is its universities rather tnen its government.

A complete revolution in school pro cedure and in school building is predict id by Prof. Armstrong, head of the edu cation section of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. The school, he says, will soon be modeled on the workshop and a great part of the time spent at the bench with tool in hand. Nature's workshop will also Ik- nsed and provision made for physical training and outdoor exercise.

One government matter which is treat ed with the utmost possible secrecy from the time it leaves the hands of the Pres ident until it is ready for Congress and the public at large is the preparation of the President's message. The preserva tion of absolute secrecy regarding the contents of the message is most essential, inasmuch as advance information as to the recommendations tp be made would 1,1 ninny instances be of the greatest value to speculators on the stock market and certain business interests. Despite the number of men who aid in the hand ling of the document at the big print shop, however, there has been no viola tion of confidence in recent years. Dur ing the Hayes administration a message was stolen from the printing office end sold at a price popularly supposed to be many thousands of dollars, but the theft has never been repeated. As # a means of preserving Inviolate the contents of the message while it is in the printing establishment the plan is adopt ed of placing with a single official the en tire responsibility for the message from the time it is delivered at the printing office until it emerges in pamphlet form ready for delivery at the White House. The nverage presidential message ranges iu length from 12,000 to 20,000 words, and when this is parceled out to the type setters it is cut up into pieces so small that no compositor can gain any definite knowledge of the subject under discus sion, and the work is so distributed among hundreds of typesetters. The as sembling of all the various tiny masses of type is entrusted to one man of known reliability, and likewise only old and trusted employes are permitted to have a hand in the printing and binding of the pamphlets. As an extra safeguard, tho workmen engaged upon the printing of the message are compelled each evening to account for every sheet of paper which has been issued for use on the presses. The printed copies of the message are taken, upon completion, direct to the White House offices and the only copies which are permitted to leave the hand of the office force prior to the day of the opening of Congress are those which are given in confidence to the representatives of the newspapers and press associations with the understanding that no extracts from them shall be printed until the mes sage has been read to Congress. NEW YORK THREATENED. Will Have a Coal Famine if the Win ter's Snowfall Be Heavy. Settlement of the coal strike has not brought to New York City a complete solution of the serious problem raised by the shortage of fuel. Although each day 20,000 tons of anthracite now enter New York, no dealer can keep a supply in his yards and customers cannot be supplied as yet in amounts of more than a ton at a time. The normal consumption of coal in the city is 30,000 tons daily and, with the amount reaching there 4,000 tons lesg, the demand cannot be supplied. Upon the absence of heavy snowfalls this winter depends whether or not tho city will be visited by the greatest cop I famine in ita history. Should the rail roads be blocked by a heavy snowfall for even a brief time, the city’s supply would be quickly consumed and then would en sue terrible famine. Coal’ now sells at $7.00 a ton, but if the supply were cut oil for even a day the prices would go skyward with a bound and iu forty-eight hours no coat could be hod. The ensu ing conditions cannot be imagined. The public schools of Brooklyn are face to face with the seriousness of the coal famine. On Monday two had to be closed because no fuel to beat them could be obtained and two others were kept open only by the personal efforts of their principals, who interceded with dealers. Within a few days, it is said, over a score of public schools, accommo dating 40,000 children, will be forced to close their doors unless conditions im prove. Told in a Few Lines.

A discovery of great archaeological mportance was recently made by a iborer engaged in cmting turf from a og ntar Knock Mulltown, County Gal vay, Ireland. At a depth of sixteen eet he came upon a boat hewn out of a ingle piece of oak and estimated to be it least 1,000 years old. Xotwithstand ng its age, it is singularly well pre served. In shape it very greatly re ernbles the present day eauoe. only nan.v times the size of that craft in use o-day. It is forty-eight feet long, ibout three feet wide, and two and one aalf feet deep. The boat looks as hough two, or at most three, meu night lift it, but when weighed shortly iftor its excavation it drew the beam town to something over two tons. Sir Thomas Esmoude, liart., has pur chased tls valuable find for preseuta ion to the Royal Britsh academy, where t will hold a place of boner as one of he most valuable of tlwir pieces of an tiquity. Archaeologists claim that this boat belongs to the time of the cave dwellers. Experts recognize five classes if craft in the evolution of ships. -First comes the primitive raft of the aborig ines. then the car.oe. crudely hollowed out of a tree trunk: next came canoes of wood stitched together with sinews; then plank boats stiffened with ribs, and finally vessels in which the frame work was first setuip and the timbers added afterwards. The boat found in Ireland represents the second period. Sir Thomas says; “Some wooden piles were also found near the boat, which may have formed part of the platform or landing place alongside of which it was stored. In the distant ages, to which we may date this boat, the Mulltown bog must have been a swamp inhabited by lake-dwellers. The country round about must have lieen comparatively thickly populated, judg ing from the number of Duns still to be seen on all sidi s. and judging also from the number o ’ objects of stone and bronze which have been found in the locality from time to time. “Avery beautiful bronze spearhead of unusual form aud finish was found near the place sometime since. It is now in the jollection of Dr. Thomas Costello of Tunm. A bronze dish was also dis covered there comparatively recently, but, unfortunately, it has since disap appeared and cannot lie traced. I men tion these finds as evidence that the lo cality of the boat was at one time a populous center, whose people were not without skill as craftsmen.” —Philadel- phia Times. “The Proof of the Pudding Lies in the Eating." The doctors are dumbfounded, the druggists astonished, and the people ex cited and joyful over the wonderful cures and tremendous sales of the great Rem edy, St. Jacobs Oil. Every case of Rheu matism —some of many years’ standing— has given way to this powerful femedy. Thousands of certificates like the follow ing can be furnished as to its value; George Sctcyer, Publisher of the Chilton, W is., "Volksbote,” used Jacobs Oil for “almost unbearable pains in the back, which had completely pros trated hint.” A few' applications cured him entirely. .Mrs. Fred Eberle, Bellairc, 0., was for a long time severely troubled with Rheu matism. St. Jacobs Oil instantly re lieved and entirely cured her. Rev. Dr. B. Pick, of Rochester, X. Y., suffered so intensely from Rheumatic pains that he was unable to preach. Several applications from a bottle of St. Jacobs Oil “relieved him.” F. Radder, Cleveland, Ohio, says: “Two applications of St. Jacobs Oil cured me of great aud long-continued pain in my foot.” Messrs. C. L. Brundage and Son, Drug gists.

Protest Against fhe Ancient Notion of Rising 1 ally. The time of rising in the ' morning has not, In fact, kept step with the progress of other events. The old cus tom of early risiug and breakfasting by candle light during the season of short days still prevails, although the need lias largely passed away. Forty years ago farm work began with the break of the day, and laboring people were expected to lie In shops and fac tories at 5 o’clock in the morning the year round. The agitation for a short er day first reduced the hours to ten and later to nine and eight. But it is doubtful if the hours given to sleep have increased as much as the hours of work have ceased. And in partic ular the time of rising is still where it rbee ten aud twelve boon of labor were demanded. This is wrong. There is nothing m >re conducive to nealth, good morals anti good temper than a nap in the morning. It round*, out the night’s sleep aud imparts a satisfaction which is a considerable factor in the day's work. There is nothing like sleep to tone up the nerves.

Aud this is an argument which will appeal at the present time to every housekeeper when the neces ! sity for economy is being euforeed so sharply. There are early dosing movements. Why not a late rising movement? All methods of work and business have been changed during the last two gen erations and they are still changing.
