Stimulates a Desire for Stronger
Drugs—Some People Can Not Start
a Day's Work Without a Seltzer
The Effect Bromo Has.
The bromo-seltzer dope fiend is the
latest. It has already been supposed
\that this harmless little drug, that is
taken on the cold, gray dawn of the
morning, to chase away a headache,
after a night of revelry, was the proper
thing, and that no bad, but beneficial
results followed. And now the physi
cians declare that the use of it makes
slaves of men, and that its continued
use'leads to a desire for stronger
drugs. It is said there are few if
any bromo dope flen,ds in the city,
but that there are many all over
'he country, and they have learned to
*rave for it with as strong a desire as
le morphine and cocaine fiends. Many
eople here in Ottumwa require jy
Jltzer in the morning before they un
dertake the-duties of the day.
The habit is usually formed by the
fellows who go out for an occasional
lark, and whose debauches are exces
sive. Soothed and calmed by the in
fluence of the drug they find they are
able to go. to their work with their
usual vigor, even after an all-night de
bauch, and thereafter every time they
feel a little dumpish they resort to the
bromo-seltzer until the habit becomes
fastened upon them and they find it
difficult to break* away from it.

Habit On Increase.
A physician who has made a study
fcf the matter declares that the habit is
•bn the increase to an alarming extent.
A few years ago no one knew what
bromo-seltzer was. Then it was put on
the market as a cure for headache.
^Then tho booze fighters took it up and
camped on its trail and the little drug
performed the office of bracing them
up temporarily. The occasional drink
er took lessons from his friend who
daily consumed large quanities of
liquor, and it has come to that stage
where every man hunts up a bromo
the morning following a-night of rev
How Drug Acts.
The drug acts just the same as any
other drug, so it is claimed by physi
cians and in time the User becomes a
slave to the habit. His system grad
ually become wrecked, although it
takes a much longer time than the
stronger drugs, such as chloral or mor
phine. But the physicians say that the
worst thing about the bromo habit is
the most that the drug creates a desire
for something stronger. The habitual
user of bromo eventually wants some
thing else, and there is a craving for
some drug that has a more powerful
effect. Many users of bromo in this
way become addicted to other habits
and the morphine and other drug hab
it^ fasten on him all the stronger than
under other circumstances.

Famous Journalist Will Wed in Iowa
Next Week.
Des Moines, Nov. 9. A romance
which finds its culmination on the
prairies of Iowa and its inception in
the mountains of California, will be
revealed at Newton in a few days
when Jack London, the famous war
correspondent and journalist will wed
Miss Carmine Kittredge of Oakland,
Cal., at the home of the latter's cou
sin, Mrs. W. E. Murray, where-Miss
Kittredge is now visiting. As a friend
of Mrs. Watson "the Woman in
White," who created a furore in Des
Moines last summer when she appear
ed at Ingersoll park, Miss Kittredge
became well known to Des Moines
society people.
Jack London is now in the .west,and
has visited his fiancee in Newton dur
ing his trips through the state. It was
reported at Newton recently that the
marriage of Miss Kittredge and Mr,
London would take place in a very
few days.
The romance has had its other side.
The former wife of London, Miss Eliz
abeth Madderta of Oakland, Cal., has
secured a divorce from him and has
taken her two children with her. The
infatuation between London and the
handsome young poetess of Oakland,
Miss Kittredge, resulted in a family
separation. Both were ^ond of liter
ature and outdoor life. They were
thrown much in «sach other's company
and London forgot the little wife and
babes in his handsome California
home, and soon admitted his infatua
tion for the bright young woman
whom he had met in the San Fran
cisco newspaper offices.
Wife in the Way.
But one thing remained in the way
of their happiness. Jack London was
married. But his strange infatuation
for the Californian soon reached the
eyes and ears of his wife, who left
him and soon started divorce proceed
ings. The divorce was granted and
the way was clear.
Then the Russo-Japanese difficulties
in the far east attracted public atten
tion and also the newspaper men of
the country, Jack London among the
rest. Yet while in the far east he
never forgot the romance of the Cal
ifornia home. Letters crossed the
Pacific and endearing epistles which
made for the culmination of the ro
mance were exchanged. Meanwhile,
the young woman continued to gain
fame in a small way by writing short
sketches for western papers and pub
lications, while London was gaining
fame as a war correspondent.
London came back to America and
entered the lecture field. Platform
engagements were secured throughout
the western and central western
states. Miss Kittredge remembered
his itinerary and when his dates
called for appearances in Iowa she
came to Newton. In this place it was
proposed that the wedding should tak^
place. No date has been set. The
affair will be private and only a few
friends of the contracting parties will
be present.

Executive Official is Preparing Report
to the Governor Plan to Do Away
With Permanent Officers More
Credit for Rifle Practice.
A number of important recommen
dations, some of them novel, will-be
contained in the report of Adjutant
General W. M. Thrift, which is now
being prepared and which will be pre
sented to the governor before the ses
sion of the legislature. It is reported
that there will be no recommendation
for the erection of an arsenal, for
which the state has purchased a site
east of the capital, but it is proposed
to ask the legislature for an increase
in the appropriation for maintenance
of the Iowa National Guard by about
$30,000. This increase is to include
a raise in the appropriation for armory
rental from $300 to $600 for each com
pany, the setting aside of $50 a-year
for clerical hire $100 for each com
pany for a rifle range, and also an
amount for a regimental vL3e range
for each of the four companies. Com
pany heartily coincides with the
proposed recommendations of the ad
jutant general.
Hits Permanent Officers.
The rumored recommendation which
Will cause the most talk probably will
be the one for a detailed staff instead
of a permanent staff, as has been the
case in the past. If the legislature
should pass an act carrying the rec
ommendations into effect., it will do
away with all the officers upon the
governor's staff with perhaps the ex
ception of the aides de camp and the
medical department. Those who
would go out of office under this act
would be: Colonel John C. Loper,
auartermaster general Col. John R.
Prime, inspector general Col. H. B.
Hedge, commissary general Col. C.
G. Saunders, judg-e advocate general
Col. Charles J. Wilson, chief of engi
neers: Col. Charles S. Crail, chief sig
nal officer Maj. Frank E. Lyman, Jr..
assistant inspector general Col. W.
H. Evans, general inspector small
arms practice Capts. Will F. Smith,
L. D. Ross, E. S. Geist and H. C. Arm
strong, assistant general inspectors of
small arms practice, and Lieut. Seth
Dean, assistant chief engineer.
In place of these it is proposed to
detail officers from the different regi
ments to do the work: that is, some
field officer would be made acting in
spector general and another acting
general inspector of small arras prac
tice. These officers would perform the
staff duty in addition to the other
It is also proposed to hold a meet
ing some time next month to decide
upon the bill to be placed' before the
legislature. This meeting will be at
tended by the governor, General Thrift
and the four colonels commanding reg
iments and one other officer from
each regiment. After the bill is -de
cided upon copies of it may be pre
pared and sent to each company in
the state and the members urged to
assist in bringing it to the members
of the senate and house and insist
upon its passage.
Increase in Credit.
More credit is to be given to the
militia companies of the state for
their small arms practice in the in
spection records, aocoriing to a new
order just issued by Adjutant General
Thrift. Heretofore the companies have
been rated on a basis of 75 per cent
for station inspection and 25 per cent
for small arms practice. The new or
der increases the percentage for small
arms practice to 40 per cent and re
duces the credit for station inspection
to 60 per cent. This change is. made
to place more importance on the rifle
practice of the companies. The new
order is as follows:
1. Paragraph 8, of A. G. O., -dated
December 6, 1904, is revoked and the
following Js substituted therefor:
"Inspecting officers on arriving at
the figure of merit of companies for
the inspection of 1905 will base the
total percentages at station inspection
at 60 points and the small arms prac
tice at 40 points, total possible 100
points. For bands on the percentages
of 1,100 points for station inspection."
2. On the receipt of the report of
the inspector of small arms, practice
for the year 1905 the inspector general
will file his report giving the figure"\f
merit of the various organizations. It
is required that the reports be made
in time for publication in the adjutant
general's biennial report, which is due
November 30, 1905. Officers in any
manner responsible for these reports
shall complete and forward same with
in the time specified in orders.
3. All orders or regulations in con
flict with these orders are revoked.

Important that this filtering work of

Very little causes are likely to set

outward signs besides irregularity of
