Nearly everybody knows that char coal is tho ifi'sl and most efficient disinfectant and pnriHer in nature, but few realize its value when taken into the human system for the same cleans ing purpose. Chal'coal is a remedy that the more You take of it the better it is not a drug at all, but simply absorbs the gases and Impurities always •present in the stomach and Intestines and car ries them out of the system. Charcoal sweetens the breath after smoking, drinking or after eating on ions and other odorous vegetables. Charcoal effectually clears and Im proves the complexion, it whitens the teeth and further acts as a natural and eminently safe cathartic. It absorbs* the Injurions gases which collect in the stomach and bowels: it disinfects the :nouth and throat front the. poison of catarrh. All druggists sell charcoal In one form or another, but probably the best .charcdal and the most for the money (is in Stuart's Charcoal T,ozenges: they ,ire composed of the finest powdered Willow charcoal ,und other harmless antiseptics in tablet form or rather in the form of large pleasant tasting loz enges, the charcoal being mixed with honey. The daily use of these loaenges will soon (ell in a much improved condi tion of the general health, bettor com plexion, sweeter breath and purer .blood, and the beauty of" it is, that no possible harm can result from their continued use, but, on the contrary, great benefit. A Buffalo physician, in speaking of the benefits of charcoal says: "I ad vise Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges to all Ipatierits suffering from gas in stomach and bowls, and to clear the complexion jand purify the breath, mouth and throat I also believe the liver is great ly benefited by the daily use of them they cost but twenty-five cents a box at drug" stores, and altho in some sense a patent preparation, yet I believe I get more and better Charcoal in Stuart's Charcoal Loisenges than in any of the ordinary chafcoal tablets."

Special to TTmes-Ttepubliean. Fort Podge, Feb. I."..— 11' the recep tion given the introductory remarks of Senator P. J. Mel'umber are to be tak en as a forecast of the political situa tion in this section of the stale, Gov ernor Cummins will have almost tlie solid support of his party ill his can didacy for the senalorship. Senator McCumber has represented his people of North Dakota with credit, but be failed to correctly size up the political situation in this section and the op ening remarks of his speech 011 "Fed eral Inspection of lira In" before the Farmer Grain Dealers' association, brought him only jeers and made votes for Governor Cummins. "It is a most agreeable pleasure." said the senator, "to meet with this association of representative grain dealers, to discuss a great proposition involving the most important industry and affecting the welfare of the great est number of people in the United States. "It is also a privilege to visit the city of one of our most noted orators, who coitibines with that attainment the high qualities of advanced and constructive statesmanship. Senator J. P. Dolliver." There were perhaps a dozen of the delegates In attendance who brought their hands together In applause at the mention of the name of Senator Dolliver, but the majority of the thousand people present In the armory sat in mute silence, Altho an gered at the political drift of the ad dress. "And it is no less a privilege." continued the senator, "to visit the state of that 'Grand Old Man' who, for so many years as chairman of the com mittee on appropriations, has, second in influence only to the president of the United States, guided the destiny of the country. While in most instances the "state may with a degree of pro priety lay claim to its representative in the national council, the whole coun try claims Senator Allison." Again the lone ciozen of Allison'supporters made a slight demonstration, and recogniz ing be had burned his linger in his ef forts to pay a tribute to his colleague, the North Dakota .senator made an ef fort to play to the galleries, only to end In a miserable failure. "His position," he continued, "the most delicate, as well as the most im portant one in the senate, has been filled with a degree of broadminded statesmanship, skill and diplomacy, combined with a courage and fierce ness that has challenged the admira tion of the country. The members of the senate have learned to look to him for information and guidance 011 all great questions of national importance, and to rely with confidence upon his judgment. Tho his advancing years may have somewhat bowed the rugged frame, they have not 'in the slightest degree abated the vigor of mind, the force of character, or the old time abil ity to bear successfully every burden which-official duty Imposes upon him." I know you will pardon my digression from my theme of today to congratu late, you upon your able representative in congress." Again the few Allison supporters present made an effort at a demon stration. but It was drowned by shouts from all parts of the building, of "What's the matter with Cummins? He's all right," while there went up a' burst of cheers at the mention of the name of the chief executive that fair ly raised the roof of the armory. Jtecognizing his auditors were not in sympathy with his efforts to turn a grain dealers' convention into a stand pat meeting, the North Dakota senator, made an effort at apology by replying to the cheers and burst of applause: "Governor Cummins needs no word from me to anyone who is acquainted with him, and you all know him," and forthwith launched Into his address appropriate of the occasion and which was handled in a masterly manner.

Stock Company's Performances at Hampton Fail to Please. Special to Times-Republican. 1 Hampton, Feb. 35.—Scenes 'that would have done credit to the now fa mous Cherry Sister performance of a few years ago, were enacted at Hamp ton this week when the audience took occasion to butt into the performance with lemons,' cabbage and sundry specimens of the vegetable market. A stock company had been playing a three nights' engagement there, and two preceding performances had evi dently been sized up by the critical au diences as about "the limit." The third evening, it is evident the audience re solved to hand the actors something, and a general free-for-all resulted. While the performances may have de served criticism, the audience exceed ed the propriety of the time, the place and the play, by overstepping the eti quette that is supposed to exist be tween the people on both sides of tho footlights.

Iowa led in team work and in accu rate basket throwing. The Hawkeye team was practically a new team, since a complete "reorganization was made necessary in the last few days on account of the loss of Morrissey and Ramsell, who are out for the rest of the season on account of back work. Burkheimer and Perrine did the best work for Iowa, while Dadant and Brundage were the stars on the Illi nois side. The final score was 46 to 30. CHASE TO LEAVE IOWA.

Wi tnesses as to Deceased's Habits Flatly Contradict Each Other. Special to Times-Republican. Mason City, Feb. 15.—The sensation today in the Day will contest case, was the testimony of witnesses relative to the habits of C. H. Day. C. P. Ship ley, an old resident who leased one of the Day buildings which he has oc cupied for years, testified that C. 11. Day consorted with lady roomers in the building, was drunk a large portion of his time, and never came into his office unless h? was in a stuper, or sort of a comatose condition. Harry Olson, a former employe of Mr. Ship ley, was called to the stand and testi fied exactly opposite to the contest ant's witness, saying there were no women in the building, that Day was always bright and active, and that li^ always came in the shop for the pur pose of reading the papers. Two prominent physicians swore ex actly contrary to each other. The con testant's witness, Dr. Birnev, said the deceased had valvular heart trouble and kidney trouble from which he died, and that no riorphine was ever ad ministered to him because of the dan gerous action upon the patient's heart. On the contraary Dr. C. H. Smith tes tified that the patient died of tubercu losis and that morphine was given by him. In the presence of Dr. Birney. The case is attracting a good deal of at tention as it deals with events long since transpired. BALES CASE AGAIN. First Correspondent Insists That Evi dence Was Given Substantially Cor rect. Special to Times-Republican. Eldora, Feb. 15.—In the Times-Re publican of February 8, there appeared under an Fldora date line, a report of the Bales-Wisner guardianship case which had been tried in the district court here the day before. In the is sue of the 11 tli inst., you published a reply to this report under the heading, "In a Different Light." which article denies the accuracy of the first report and evidently intends to mislead the public. The only evidence omitted on the Bales side of the case in the first report was the testimony of C. E. Al brook, one of the principals in the land transfers and one of the attorneys in the case. He testified that he and Mr. Ryan bought the 320 acres in question not of C. E. Dinehart and F. D. Week, as the deeds and records show, but of .G. Marshman, who had a oontract on the same, which could not be closed until June 1, 1902, (the deed was in May), and that .the land was deeded to them by Dinehart and Week "as a matter of convenience" and that he and Ryan paid Dinehart & Week the $25.50 an acre which Marshman had agreed to pay and p.^jd Marshman the difference in cashi^e tween his contract price and what they had agreed to pay him, or $32.25 an acre. There was no evidence introduced to support this testimony. Judge Wade, attorney for the plaintiff, asked "Where is this man Marshman?" and received the answer, "That's what we would like to know." Marshman had had a case of his own in court the week be fore and coul 3 easily have been\ sum moned as a witness. Mr. Marshman yesterday told your correspondent that this testimony was a misrepresentation and created a false impression. Albrook testified that he and Ryan deeded the 240 acres to Diehl "to car ry out a contract between Diehl and Henry Hurd." Diehl testified that Ryan showed him the land, sold it to him and Albrook & Ryan deeded it to him aitd that he never knew Hurd owned it. Mr. Hurd is dead. The writer of the second report also places great stress on 'the testimony of Burt I. Weld, president of the First National Bank of Slayton, Minn., but here again he attempts to deceive the public by misrepresenting. In the first report it was said that Weld admitted that the lajid could not be sold for $30 an acre. In the second report it is stated "The question put to Mr. "Weld was: 'In that conversation did you not say that this particular piece or tract of land could not lie disposed ot at this time?'" This has nothing to do Willi the question which was asked by Mr. Rogers 011 cross examination: "Did you not admit, to Mr. Robb that .he could not. sell this land for $:',(! an acre?" He first answered "If I did. I don't remember it," and later, when the question was again urged, he said: "I may have done so, but I meant that I didn't know of a buyer," and this was taken by the lirst correspondent as a practical admission, for the reason that Mr. llobb's testimony brought out Die conditions under which the question •was asked. Mr. Robb, who is cashier of tin- liar din county State bank, of lOldora, went into the bank at .Slayton and, meeting Mr. Wold as a fellow banker, discussed conditions and land In general, and. calling attention to this piece of land, said: "What would you say, if 'I told you that land was sold to a ward in lOldora for $(.'! an acre'.'" and Mr. Weld, with a smile, asked the significant question: "Who nut tin money'.'" Mr. Robb then fold Weld that he had suc ceeded Mr. Bales as guardian, and asked Weld if he could dispose of (he land at $30 an acre, and Weld an swered, "I don't believe you could." C. 10. Dlnehart, who is president of the State Bank of Slayton. president of the school board, and father of the present state treasurer of Minnesota, testified that lie anil' Mr. Week got a "big price" when they sold to Albrook & Ryan at $25.50, and further testi fied that land "went down that same fall." This land was transferred to Bales' guardian tho following Janu ary. We now come to the excuse for the second report of this oase. "We make these statements because, If the evi dence as reported to you and published in yours of February 8th. Judge Lee must bo either idiotic, or corrupt." It Is to be regretted that the attorney for Mr. Rales lias preferred these charges against Judge Lee, for the statements of tho first report are substantially true. OTTOSEN MADE WAY STATION.

Des Mollies, Feb. 15.—Flinging defi ance to tho federal courts for any in terference and ordering the Des Moines City and Interurban railway companies to show what franchise they are oper ating under. Judge James A. .Howe de cided the celebrated franchise case this morning in favor of the Civic league. The action was brought In quo war ranto because the city officials refused to take any action. The corporations tried to prevent the league from getting into court and carried the case to the federal court and secured an opinion from Judge McPherson holding their franchise perpetual. Then they tried to show Judge Howe that he had no jurisdiction. He says he has jurisdic tion and Unit tho companies will have to show under what franchise they are operating. Tlie Civic league asserts the company has no franchise. Tho ease in" the federal court has been ap pealed, but Judge Howe will not wait until this case is settled^ The case will now go to trial on its merits. This is considered a big victory for the Civic league, composed as it is of the leading business men df the city, who think the street car company should pay for the use of the streets. COMMODITY RATES FIXED. State Commission Provides Reduction On Long Distances. Des Moines, Feb. 15.—The state rail road commission, the freight commis sioners of many Iowa cities, represen tatives of the shippers' organizations, and freight agents of the railroads that do business in Iowa, held a conference yesterday on commodity rates and ad justed them, it is said, to the satisfac tion of all interests. Several weeks ago the commission promulgated commodity rates covering paper, brick, agricultural implements, wagons, furniture, and kindred articles of shipment. The Burlington railroad, which has the short line in Iowa, found that' It was suffering a discrimination in these rates and so alleged to the board In an application for a rehear ing, which was granted yesterday. When you discover that the use of coffee as a beverage is undermining your health. Many persons who suspect that palpitat ion of the heart with a "smothery" sensation is caused by coffee, don't seem to know how to break the fetters forged upon them by caff bine —the drug in coffee. They want a hot beverage for breakfast and may have "tried Postum" (weakly made by simply steeping it in hot water, or "letting it come to a boil") and did not relish it. No wonder! Boil Postum 15 minutes as per directions on pkg., add good cream and then try it. In 10 days you may safely expect a decided change for the better. Keep it up and you will discover Out of the rehearing came an ad justment which provides that there shall be a. flat commodity rate for the I distance between the length of the Burlington, which is 290, and the long est haul, which is said to be 380. with corresponding gradation to meet the former commodity rates for the other distances.
