The warrant charging murder was nerved at 4 o'clock. Hyde's attorneys Ave re notified at noon that a warrant for his arrest would be issued, and were told to have their client at the Criminal court building at 4 o'clock to he arrested. During the time elapsing between noon and 4 o'clock Dr. Hyde sat in the office of his attorneys and read. Hyde Took it Cooly. He did not seem to mind the thought of being placed under arrest and a charge of first-degree murder placed against him. He chatted with friends and attorneys, and called up his wife, who is a niece of Col. Swope. The conversation with Mrs. Hyde was not a long one. He simply told her that he was to be placed under ar rest, but that he would be home for supper. All arrangements for the bond were fixed earlier in the week. At 4 o'clock, when Prosecuting At torney Virgil Conkling appeared in the criminal court building with Marshal Joel Mayes. Dr. Hyde, who had been chatting with a group of friends, ex cused himself and walked over to the prosecutor's desk. Marshal Mayes tapped him on the shoulder from be hind and said: "I have something here for you." Waived Reading of Warrant. Attorney Walsh, before his client rould say a word, jumped to his feet snd said: "We waive the reading of the war rant." Immediately following this the party got into waiting automobiles and went to Independence, where Dr. Hyde was arraigned. In the party were Prosecutor Conk ling, Dr. Hyde, Attorneys Lucas, Walsh, Cleary and Johnson and Mar shal Mayes. The Justice's office is a small room, there were only two chairs. Dr. Hyde was conducted to one of these and Jus tice Loar took the other. Dr. Hyde arose and declared: "I hate to be sitting down when so many older men are standing up. Won't one of you please take my chair?" He was told to keep his seat and the ! arraignment proceeded. After the adjournment Dr. Hyde rushed home to his wife, who is ill. Special Grand Jury Called. A special grand jury has been called to inquire into the death of Colonel j Swope. It will be convened Saturday I morning at ! o'clock. This decision! was reached at a lengthy conference ; between attorneys for Dr. Hyde, John l. I'axton's lawyers. Prosecutor Conk ling and Judge Ralph Latshaw, of the criminal court. The conference, which was called at the order of Prosecutor Conkling, was held in Mr. Conkling's private office and lasted about half an hour. When a person finds himself suffer ing from chronic indigestion, there is just one of two things to do: Discon tinue the use of food almost entirely or obtain something that will digest the food for you until your stomach muscles are in working order again. It Is possible to obtain a remedy that will digest food even when the stomach can't, and we can obtain the word of many reputable people to prove it. Since Indigestion Is usually complicated with constipation and liver trouble it Is necessary to get a remedy that has laxative as well as digestive properties, and which at the same time contains ingredients that will tone and strengthen the stomach and bowel muscles. Such a remedy, according to the testimony of people for a quarter of a century, is rr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, which can be obtained of any druggist at fifty cents or one dollar a bottle, as it comes In both sizes. But if you are one who iias never used this grand remedy, and you would like to make a test of it befor buying of your druggist, then rend your name and address to Dr. Caldwell and he will gladly send you a free iampl bottle for trial.

Shumaker of the Anti Saloon League, Gives Out a Few of His Opinions. (Palladium Special) Indianapolis. Ind., Feb. 11. E. S. Shumaker, state superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League, has given out an interview on the druggists and the blind tiger law, which is of interest. He says: "That there are honorable men in the druggist's profession and the great ma jority of druggists never handle liq uor except professionally, we have al ways believed to be true. However, there are some druggists who do very much illicit liquor selling, and by so doing do dishonor to the regular pro fession. "Judge Bratton, of the DeKalb cir cuit court, has recently made a decis ion which will open the way for innum erable prosecutions against the dishon orable class of druggists in his own county. "One, J. J. Stoehr sold L. M. Chor penning a quart of whiskey upon the purchaser signing a printed applica tion. The contention of the state was that the application should have been written by the applicant as well as signed by him in order to have con formed to the requirements of the Beardsley law. The state further charged that the purchaser was in the habit of becoming intoxicated and that under the law Mr. Stoehr was prohib ited from selling him liquor. "The defense fought both these con tentions, but the court ruled that the application should be in the purchas er's own hand writing, and further that it was the duty of the druggist to know that the applicant for intoxicating liq uors is not in the habit of using the same for a beverage. Many witnesses were introduced to show that Mr. Chorpenning was a hard drinker. Therefore, according to the judge's rul ing, the druggist was guilty of violat ing the law in selling him the liquor at all. since it was his duty to know that the man was not in the habit of using the liquor for beverage purpos es. "Judge Rigley ,of the Albion circuit court, made a similar ruling at Ango la recently, and a conviction and a heavy fine resulted. "While the Beardsley law is unsatis factory in some respects, yet we are confident that its provisions are not well known to the public generally. If a druggist sells liquor to an applicant in the habit of using intoxicating liq uors as. a beverage, he violates the law. One conviction for such violation means that he cannot handle liquor again for two years, and a second vio lation means the revocation of his pharmacist's license. My attention has also been called to a decision by Judge Kirkpatrick, of Kokomo, in a case against Harvey E. Bates, a druggist of that city, who was convicted by a jury in the circuit court, for selling a quart of whisky to a bootlegger. The judge emphasized way thousands of people have been brought to use It. You cannot obtain a better or more reliable remedy for general family use as it is very curative in constipation of the most stubborn kind, in indiges tion, liver trouble, sour stomach, sick headache and other troubles caused by disorders of the stomach, liver or bow els. Thousands of families like that of Mr. Prank Connor of 108 State street. Madison. Wis., and Mrs. Virginia Cun ningham of Weir. Miss., no longer use the ordinary "dyspepsia cures" for in digestion, nor cathartic pills or salts for constipation, but they get Dr. Cald well's Syrup Pepsin, which is truer and more genuine, milder and more pleas ant, and yet thoroughly effective. Try it and see the good results you will obtain.

OL his position taken in a former case that the druggist under every condi tion sells the whisky at his own risk. In other words the druggist must have personal knowledge of the habits of the purchaser, who presents to him a ' physicians' certificate. In the ab sence of such knowledge he must make diligent inquiry." Mr. Shumaker also says that the temperance people of Indiana must get busy and keep busy throughout the coining state campaign or the brewers and the liquor element will get the best of them. He has issued the following instructions to the Anti Saloon League workers in the state: "Make sure that decent citizens are thoroughly organized, get to the pri maries and nominate men to run for the legislature who will stand both for the maintenance of our county op tion law unimpaired upon our statute books, and for the passage of a joint resolution, to be repassed in 19115. sub mitting a prohibition amendment to our constitution to a vote of the peo ple. Let all Indiana be aroused. let good citizens assert themselves, and we believe that the temperance ele ment in both the Democrat and Re publican parties will so completely win out in the primaries and at the rolls that the next legislature will be composed of strong temperance men. "The seventy dry counties of this state will this year elect 58 represent atives out of a total of 100. Twelve additional representative districts composed of more than one county each, are partly dry. Out of our fifty senatorial districts 25 are in terri tory wholly dry, and nearly all the rest have territory partly dry. The net dry majorities cast in the 79 coun ties which voted on the local option question last year was about 6S.0OO. The liquor men cannot win in this ter ritory unless they have a better or ganization than the temperance peo ple. If the temperance people are de feated they will have no one to blame but themselves." At Local Theaters At the Murray.

UNCLE SAM CAREFUL If you have been chuckling over the prospect of sending ugly and insulting postcards as valentines to someone whom you have a grudge against better seal them up in an envelope before mailing or they will never reach their destination. Otherwise they will go to the dead letter office. It is said that the postoffice depart ment is going to wage a severe war on valentines of this nature, this year, and will in all probability prosecute all cases of violation of the law. Four years ago the department sent out an order to all postmasters to the effect that comic-valentine post cards which would tend to reflect injuriously on the recipient of the card should be sent to the dead letter office at Washington. A close watch will be kept by the em ployes of the local office this year, it is said, and the rule will be strictly adhered to. It is expected that the us ual number of cards will be thrown out as the practice is of such long standing that it will require several years to break it up altogether.
