MAGNATES TO MEET
WESTERN AXD SATIOXAI, LBAGCES
GET TOGETHER THIS ""WEEK.
"What Will the Circuit BeT The Kan
sas City Club Will Be All night
Tom Loftns and the St.
Louis Drnirm.
"The National League magnates will hold
a. meeting on Tuesday In New Tork, and
theWcstern League magnates will get to
gether a day later In Chicago," said Old
Sport last night. "The National League
meeting will be watched with 'a great deal
of Interest by the local fans, as much will
depend upon its outcome in the matter of
fixing the "Western circuit. The talk tends
to a league of ten clubs, but no one has
offered a suggestion as to which will be the
running mate to the 'Wandering Willies,
who will unquestionably become Browns.
And again, the meeting will not be devoid
of interest from the fact that Chris, "der
boss bresident,' will be on hand and will
ask to be recognized as the representative
of St. Louis. It Is a cold day when the
magnates can down the doughty Chris.
"The principal outcome, of the meeting
will doubtless be the adoption of the pro
posed changes in the playing rules, but
from the many expressions of commenda
tion, that matter will take up a "very small
portion of the magnates' time. However,
John T. may have a few aces up his sleeve,
and will wait for someone else to open the
pot. One thing sure, John T. Is not go
ing to be gold-bricked into accepting any
thing that will have the semblance of
handicapping the Beds. But the "Western
fan is only Interested in knowing whether
CIe-eland will be "Western League territory
or not, and at that it makes very little dif
ference locally.
"Kansas City is going to have a good
club and, as it has been pointed out sev
eral times. It may not be a star fielding
aggregation, but it will be in the front
row on hitting and pitching, and 'It's hits
wot wins de games." Single and "Williams
were doubtless gqod players and their loss
will be felt by the fans who have pinned
their faith to those stars, but' there are
others, and Jimmy Manning knows the
difference between a good player and a
ham. some signed journalism writer to the
contrary notwithstanding. The local fan
has painted on his banner, 'We are for
Kansas City first, last and all the'tlme.
and we will commence to talk about weak
spots when the contracts are all In and
we will do all our talking in Jackson
county.' x
"The meeting of the, Western magnates
" will be one of those affairs where 'hot air"
stories will be the largest part of the bus
iness transacted, as the magnates know
where they are at, and it only remains
for the big fellows to say what they will
do about Cleveland before the clrcut will
be completed, and then the matter will
be settled between Tom Loftus and Pres
ident Johnson. -
"There is a great deal of talk going
the round, of the press about Loftus mak
ing a strong play for the St. Louis fran
chise. If Loftus gets it, the National
League will have within Its ranks one
of the best managers that ever signed a
player, and St. Louis will have a man that
will see that it is ably represented."

CYCLING 0NJTHE COAST.
Twentr-fonr tloor Race Concludes
Trro Weeks of Indoor
Racine;.
SAN FRANCISCO, CAL., Feb. 23. The
first twenty-four-hour bicycle race ever
held on the Pacific coast was started to
night at the Mechanics' pavilion, with
eighteen starters at the tape. The start
ers Include all the riders who rode in the
recent six-day race, with the exception ot
Glmm, who la still confined to his room,
suffering from a very mysterious malady.
In addition to the six-day race men are
two Callfornlans of note, namely. William
G. Furman, of Los Angeles, and Charles
Kraft, tle champion road rider of the Pa
cific coast, both of whom are members oi
the Bay City Wheelmen, of this city.
The pavilion was crowded to-night, as
the twenty-four-hour race was looked upon
to be the crowning feature of the two
weeks of Indoor (racing. Waller and Chap
men were the early favorites with those
making bets,
Charles Kraft, of San Francisco, at the
last moment decided to withdraw from
the contest and W. G. Furman had never
really entered, so the announcement of
his intentien to start was erroneous. The
following riders started In the twenty-four
hour rape, which was begun at 10:27 p. m.:
Waller, Pierce) Lawson. Nawn. Miller,
Aaronson, Hale.l Julius, Fredericks, Tur
ville, Stevens, Chapman, Barnaby, Asli
inger, Plikington.
As soon as the start was fairly accom
plished, there was no lack of enthusiasm
on the part of the spectators. Miller took
the lead in the first mile which was ridden
in 2:27. It Is understood that Miller is not
in the contest tostay but that he will ride
at intervals during the race.
Miller acknowledges that twenty-four-hour
riding Is not his forte, but his pres
ence will enliven the long ride,' although
there is some grumbling among the riders
because of his supposed intention to quit
periodically and, refreshed, to return to
the track and ride the steady wheelmen
off their feet.
Teddy Hale dropped out during the sec
ond mile for a. few seconds, but, returning
to the track, received great applause. Hale
Is plainly sick, but says he will stick it out
as long as possible.
All of the contestants rode better than a
2:30 gait during the first hour.
At 11:2s. end 01 the first hour, the score
was as follows:
'Miles. Laps. MUrs. Laos,
MUler. 22 7 Julius 22 7

Charles A, Brnnn Denies Reported
Sale of Property to Liggett &
Myers Company; ,
The report that the Liggett & Myers To
bacco Company, of St Louis, had bought
the forty and one-half feet of property at
the northeast corner of Twelfth street and
Grand avenue, was denounced as utterly
untrue last evening, by Charles A. Bruun,
nepnew ana t agent ior me owner, j. a.
Bruun, who is now traveling in the South.
Mr. Bruun said:
"There is absolutely- no foundation for
such a report. There are not even any ne
gotiations of that character going on. The
property is worth a great deal more money
that the report is that it sold for, $07,200.
Liggett & Myers do own the lot next to
this property, and they want to buy -it.
They have made much larger offers for it
than $97,200. But they have made no offer
of any kind recently."

AMONG THE RAILROADS
SOUTHERN RAILROAD ABSORBS MO
BILK & BIRMINGHAM.
Lease for Ninetr-nlne Years A New
Ontlet to the Gnlf Competition
Likely to Result on Business
From Kanins City.
NEW YORK, Feb. 23. The Southern rail
way has absorbed the Mobile & Birming
ham railroad, by the terms of a lease for
ninety-nine years which was negotiated
by President Samuel Spencer, of the
Southern, on his recent trip to London.
This lease has been approved by the Lon
don security holders of the Mobile & Bir
mingham, and by its stipulations this road,
with all its franchises and property, will
be picked up March 1 by the colossal sys
tem J. Pierpont Morgpn has under his
guidance, Mr. Spencer has but recently
returned from London and left last night
for the South, accompanied by President
T. G. Bush, of the Mobila & Birmingham,
to wind up the deal In Alabama.
The Southern railway, by this negotia
tion, has secured its first direct outlet from
the great coal and iron ileitis of the Bir
mingham district to the Gulf and will
precipitate formidable competition with the
Louisville & Nashville railroad In, the
handling of this most Important traffic ot
Southern products. "It means a great deal
for the Iron and coal Industries of that
region," said Mr. Spencer yesterday, "to
secure this direct outlet to tidewater. The
Mobile & Birmingham only extends from
Mobile to Marion Junction, Ala., a distance
of 130 miles, but the Southern railway will
connect from Birmingham over Its tracks,
which once formed a part of the old East
Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia railroad,
and will thus complete the link between
the iron mines and the Gulf. The lease
to the Southern has been approved, to take
effect March 1, but there will be no change
of the personnel of the present manage
ment of the Mobile & Birmingham for the
present."
Nothing Is given out as to the financial
considerations Involved In the deil. The
Mobile & Birmingham was owned almost
entirely in London, Joseph Brice and Rich
ard White, of that city, being its largest
holders and principal directors.
The acquisition of the.Mobile & Birming
ham by the Southern railroad will give
Kansas City another outlet to the Gulf.
The Southern already has a line Into Mem
phis, but in connection with the Kansas
City, Fort Scott & Memphis via Birming
ham it would be in a position to solicit ex
port business In Kansas City via Mobile
and give Its competitors a hard road to
travel, as it would be almost as quick a
route as any now reaching that Important
port.
WHO CUTJHE RATE?
Ticket Broker Said to Have Sold
Tickets to New York at Less
Than Tariff.
The Kansas City Passenger Association
met yesterday afternoon and passed judg
ment on the Chicago Great Western, which
It was alleged cut the passenger rato to
the extent of $3 on a number of tickets
from Kansas City to New York via the
Maple Leaf and Nickel Plate. The tickets
were sold to a number of soldiers from
Fort Riley who were going to New York.
andl it was said were supplied by a local
ticket broker.
The evidence was conclusive, and the lo
cal association made a report of its findings
and sent it to, Chicago for further action.
The Maple Leaf is not a member of the
association and consequently the repre
sentative of that line could not be made
to face the charge, but there is little doubt
out mat tne line is guilty.
The Nickel Plate, over which the tickets
are said to read from Chicago, is one of the
differential lines, and late differences be
tween the standard and the differential
lines mav be at the botom of the transac
tion, and the broker was acting under In
structions from Chicago. It will be remem
bered that the Nickel Plate was lately em
broiled in a scandal affecting express orders
for half rate tickets from Chicago to New
York.
AFTER OHIO RAILROADS.
Sensational Salt Filed to Onst the
Pennsylvania From the
State.
COLUMBUS, O., Feb. 23. The attorney
general to-day filed suits In tho supreme
court to oust the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company and the Cincinnati, Hamilton &
Dayton railroad from the state. In tho
petition which was filed It is claimed that
the roads In question have violated their
franchises by forming themselves with
other roads into a pool known as the Cen
tral Passenger Association, whereby tho
said association fixes the rates of passen
ger fare and no party to such an agree
ment is permitted to deviate from the rates
so fixed. Among other things complained
of Is the Interchangeable mileage Book. It
Is further charged that the companies have
delegated their power of rate making to
the Central Passenger Association, with
offices In Chicago. It is charged that 'the
agreement is in restraint of trade, and the
plaintiff's freedom of action in industrial
and commercial life. The plaintiff prays
that the defendants be found to have
abused their franchises and to have exer
cised their franchises In contravention of
law and tho public policy of the state, and
asks that they be ousted and be excluded
therefrom, and such other relief be grant
ed as may seem to the court just and
proper.

DOCTORS AS EXPERTS.
Henry Wollman's Address Before the
Kansas City Academy ot Med
icine Last Night.
Henry Wollman delivered an address be
fore the Academy of Medicine last night
on "Physicians as Expert Witnesses-Some
Reforms."
After discussing expert testimony in gen
eral "handwriting experts, chemistry ex
perts and those swiftest of all experts ex
cept Insanitary experts real estate agents
testifying to value" Mr. Wollman said con
cerning the medical expert:
"The most important thing for a witness
Is to impress the Judge and jury with his
absolute sobriety of thought, his earnest
ness of purpose, and his unquestioned sin
cerity.
"The average physician permits himself,
on the witness stand, to be drawn quickly
into a fencing match with shrewd counsel,
and while it is true that the doctor often
gets away with the iJawyer. because he
knows more about what he Is talking
about that the lawyer, and Is often able
to crack an lexceQdlngly.bltlng, bitter and
galling joke at the lawyer's expense, still
every time ho does It he has weakened him
self with thn jury. The latter regards him
as a sharp man and, as a rule, people do
not readily trust sharp men.
"The witness testlfyingms an expert must
be cautious, careful, serious old-fashioned,
you might say about what he-says, and he
will carry conviction.
"The next objection that I would urgo
to a great deal of testimony Is the un
fortunately vain desires of many of the
vounger professional men to show off.
They answer questions Jjy delivering es
says, wnen a snort ;yes or no woum De
just as well. They use big words; they en
deavor in any and every way to impress
upon the jury that they are the real thing,
and that they know it all.
"Don't volunteer Information. If tho side
that calls you hasn't fcufilcient abiBty to
ask you the proper questions, that is neith
er your fault nor your business."

MORE P0WERAT RIVERVIEW.
Ttvo New Boilers and Engines to Be
Added to the Street Rail
way Plant.
The contract for the boilers to go in the
Metropolitan Street Railway Company's
Rtverview power house has been closed,
and In a short time the bargain will be
made for two new encines. Tho two boil
ers are to be COO horse power each, and will
be only a part of the additional steam
forming facilities to be put In. The new
engines to be put in will be one large nnd
one smairone. The largo one, which will
probably come next, will be about 2,500
horse power, and this, with the smaller
one soon to follow, will double the present
power of the plant, which Is furnished by
two 1.800 horse power engines. This increase
In the capacity of th plant is in accord
ance with the original plan, the founda
tions for the two engines yet to be bought
having been laid when the building was
erected. The evident demand for changing
more 'of the cable lines to electric lines
has resulted In this provision for an in
Increase of power.

WILL REPORT VIADUCT
SO OPPOSITION JS BPPER HOUSE
COMMITTEE.
Favorable Report on Brooklyn Ave-4
use Company's Franchise Prob
ableAnother Meeting to
Be Held To-morrow. -
Unable to reach an agreement on the
Brooklyn avenue and Missouri electric
street railway franchises, and, the Eighth
street viaduct franchise, the upper house
streets, alleys and grades committee, nfter
a short executive session yesterday morn
ing, adjourned until 10 o'clock Monday
morning, when another meeting will be
held.
Tho proposed joint meeting of the upper
and lower house streets, alleys arid grades
committees to consider the viaduct fran
chise will not be held, ns tha lower house
wants to consider the ordinance ns a
lower house measure before agreeing to
any action by the upper house. All three
ordinances will. come up at Monday night's
meeting If the upper house committee can
reach an agreement, but in the lower
house the viaduct ordinance will be re
ferred, to a committee for further con
sideration. As this will not be a rcg"ular
meeting of tho council, all amendments
offered will have to be rejected or accept
ed without reference, and in consequence
several upper house members who have
amendmenta to propose to the viaduct or
dinance will appear before' the committee
Monday morning to offer them.
The most important of the amendments
will be offered by P. S. Brown, Jr., who
will ask that as a consideration for per
mitting the viaduct to be built the com
pany shall pay to the city 2 per cent of Its
gross earnings. He will also ask that the
company be compelled to put in eight
stairways, four at Main and four at Dela
ware street. This latter amendment the
company ha3 already agreed to accept.
The plan of hnving eight stairways Is to
enable passengers to ascend to the viaduct
and catch a train going in either direction
without having, to walk across the track.
Among the members of both houses there
Is a general feeling that the viaduct is a
necessity and outside a disposition to
amend the ordinance in a few minor par
ticulars, there is no desire to delay Its
passage. It will probably receive a unan
imous vote when placed on Its passage.
After the committee adjourned yesterday.
Alderman Wyne stated that he expected
the committee would return a unanimous
favorable report on the ordinance. In re
gard to the Brooklyn avenue and Missouri
electric franchises, he stnted the fact that
two companies were npplying for a fran
chise rather complicated matters 'and in
consequence the problem was not so easy
of solution as that of the viaduct. '
Alderman Munson said he did not think
the committee would make any radical
changes in the Brooklyn avenue, ordinance,
but that the matter wa one that requlrea
careful thought, especially as regarded the
granting of an open or closed franchise.
AMENDS MILK ORDINANCE.
City Counselor Mlddlebrook Will
Make Minimum Butter Fat In
. Cream 14 Per Cent.
City Counselor Middlcbrook Is preparing
an ordinance covering tho sale of milk, and
cream in the city that will be presented to
tho council Monday night. It is an amend
ment to the existing ordinance.
The present law requires cream to have

and milk 3. In a recent police court
case Judge Burnham decided that the law
was arbitrary In requiring that amount of
butter fat In cream and In consequence re
fused to convict, the amendment win
place the amount of butter fat required at
14 per cent and will raise the minimum
fine for a violation of the law from $10
to $W. The amount of butter fat required
to bo in cream sold In Buffalo is IS per
cent; St. Louis, 12; Chicago, 12, and New

HIAWATHA GETSC0NFERENCE.
Kansas Methodists to Meet in That
City Instend of.Seneca Metrop
olis Defeated.
The chances for Kansas City, Kas., to se
cure the approaching annual meeting of the
Kansas Methodist conference are consid
ered poor. Rev. Mr. J.'W. Alderman, pre
Kldine elder of the conference, received a
fetter yesterday from Rev. Mr. E. C. Smith,
of Seneca, Kas.. who is secretary of the
conference, stating that unless present
plans miscarry tho conference will be held
aThe'ac,ontflerence was billed to be held at
Seneca, but on account of an alleged small
pox epidemic at that place the Kansas
preachers decided not to meet there. Sec
retarv Smith states In his letter that Rev.
Mr. Billingslea, pastor of the Hiawatha
church, had given assurances that the del
egates would be nicely cared for by the
pc-onlo ot that city. The conference willbe
held next month and will be presided over
by Bishop Fitzgerald. The Methodists of
thia Mtv made an effort to bring the big
meeting here
An Important Insurance Bill.
An Important bill has appeared in the
.Indiana house ot representatives, and its
passage has been recommended by the
committee on rights and privileges, to
which It was referred. The purpose of the
bill, among other things, Is to prevent real
estate loan agents from compelling borrow
ers to Insure In some particular company,
with which the lender may have some spe
cial arrangement for commission. Many
times, in Indiana as well as in other
states, a borrower who offers a policy in
one of the largest and best insurance com
panies, has had It refused, simply because
the lender has no agreement with this
company to-pay him commissions on bus
iness "on the quiet." Under these cir
cumstances borrowers have been compel
led, to secure the loan, to take out In
surance with some other company with
which the" lender had this private arrange-'
ment for commissions.
The borrower is thus deprived of the
advantages of competition between insur
ance companies. In a'ddltlon to the com
mission on the loan, which should' be
enough to satisfy- the loaning agent, the
borrower is obliged to submit to dictation
regarding the Insurance.

Woodworkers Brine P. J. Grimes to
Kansas City to Aid Them In
' Securing It.
The woodworkers of Kansas City have
brought P. J. Grimes from Chlcagoi to be
their business agent, to go between them
and the managers of the four big planing
mills of this city, nnd to engineer schemes
for the betterment of members of their
union. Mr. Grimes arrived yesterday, and
will go to work to-morrow. He will re
ceive a regular salary fnfcT tho Kansas
City woodworkers, and will devote his
whole attention to their interests. Ho ad
dressed Woodworkers' union No. 47at 1117
Walnut street last night, and made a de
cided hit.
Two things will be striven for by Mr.
Grimes. One Is tho nine-hour day and the
other the" unionizing of the four mills of
Kansas City. These mills employ about SOU
men, of whom perhaps half are union men.
"1 regard the nine-hour day as the'cnlef
need of the woodworkers generally." said
Mr. Grimes. "It will give them time to
read and think and to prepare themselves
to meet anu grapple witn tne grasping
trust. Men that slave can't think. It's a
continual grind, and they are too tired at
night to do anything but go to bed."
No regular hours are observed by the
woodworkers.
Mr. Grimes is a shrewd-looking man of
middle use. He has had long experience
in the work in Chicago and was recom
mended to tho Kansas City union by Thom
as I. KIdd, the general secretary of the
union, and vice president of the American
Federation ot Labor. Mr. Grimes saj-3 that
in the last year In Chicago, where there
are nine local unions with 2,000 members,
the nine hour day has been established.
"The effect there ot the combination of
the unions." he said, "has been to prevent
unauthorized strikes and lockouts of all
kinds. Employers and men meet regularly,
settle their differences, enter into agree
ments extending over the space of a year
and by this means maintain peace In the
labor world."
NEWSB0YSMEETING.

for Their Concert nt the Coates
To-morrow Night.

headquarters in the old Evening News
building last night. Addresses were made
by Colonel Alexander Hogeland. "the
newsboys' friend": Barney Harvey, presi
dent of the union. Rev. Mr. -Paul Brown,
Father Dalton and others.
The newsboys have been working hard
to make their concert a success. They have
been greatly helped by the papers of Kan
sas City and by the various labor organi
zations. Barney Harvey, president of the
union, feels greatly encouraged by the
present outlook, and hopes to be able to
clear a neat sum Tor the furnishing ot the
moms. Rev. Mr. Paul Brown has interest
ed himself In securing money for the equip
ment of the gymnasium, and has secured
quite a goodly sum for that purpose.
At present the union Is Indebted to no
one. It has made a practice to pay for
everything it gets, and the business men
respect it ho more for it.

Interest as the church was divided into two
factions when Rev. Mr. Johnson resigned
from it. Those who were the friends of

being instrumental in dividing the church
and contended that he was not entitled to
the amount claimed.

Outlaw Jennings Corrected.
To Ths Journal. '
Sir: In yonr Issue ot the 50th Inst, too ao proba
bly an unintentional Injustice to one ot the most dis
tinguished citizens ot our territory, the Hon. Temple
Houston,, in your publication ot the statement, with
out comment, of one AI Jennings, regarding Colonel
Houston. The writer ot this called on Colonel Hous
ton regarding itba truth ot tho matter contained la
said Interview, and he replied that, as Jennings was
an unfortunate and in prison, he would Ignore the
matter, and had nothing to say. Howerer. the er
rors In At Jennings' statement should not go un
challenged. He (Jennings) says that the cause ot
Houston's anlmoelty toward Ed Jennings, deceased.
was because he (Ed Jennings) had beaten Houston in
several "big cow suits." A careful examination of
the records here shows that only one suit, to-wlt.
leve s. Carat. Involving cattle, came for trial where
Houston and Kd Jennings were opposed to each other
as counsel, and that the same was not disposed ot at
the time of Ed Jennings' desth; and subsequently, on
a trial of the case before Judge Frank Dale. Houston
won it. Tho provocaUoil that resulted In the death of
Ed Jennings arose In a criminal case where Santa Fe
cars had been burglarized, and Houston represented
the railroad, and the "Jennings boys." three pf them,
the defendants. Al Jennings, in his statement, saya
that he cent messages to Colonel Houston to meet
him and settle the affair honorably. There la, not one
word ot truth In this statement. I do know, and as
sert without fear of tfmtradlctlon, that the "boys"
threatened to kill Houston. I mean, assassinate him.
Colonel Houston, hearing this, camo to me, and
knowing me to be friendly with all parties, asked ma
to contey arerbal message to them, which I did.
and stated to Judge Jennings and his boys. In tha
room bere John Jennings lay suffering from wounds.
Houston's exsct words: That "even after the unfor
tunate occurrence, which had resulted In the death of
Ed Jennings, he had no hatred for them; but that. It
they required satlsfacUon at his hands, any proposi
tion made by any or all of them to meet him would
be promptly responded to." They declined to meet
Colonel Houston. Judge Jennings was nearly erased
with grief, and counseled peace. They all ssld. let
the law rettle It; we will not attrmpt to harm Hous
ton. I stated to them that Mr. Houston would meet
any or all of them, one at a time, but I said Ur.
Houston would make no challenge to battle, but
ould gladly respond to any call made upon him by
them. They refused, and yet. after this clear back
down, Al Jennings says he attempted to waylay and
murder Houston. Houston has been most maliciously
lied about by Jennings In your article of the 20th.
Colonel Houston's conduct toward Jennings deserves
a requital different from that contained In Al Jen
nings' statement. In which he acknowledges that he
attempted to assassinate Hounon In 1896. In the fall
or 1S9S parties applied to Colonel Houston for docu
ments and Information In his po.Ms.lon against
Jnde.e J. D. F. Jennings for political use In a cam
paign then pending In Pottawatomie county, and
Houston promptly replied that such wsa not his
method of warfare: that he respected the yeara and
misfortunes of the old man, and would not place eren
a stone In his way. Regarding the manner ot Ed
.Tannines' death, the courts cf the country acquitted
Houston, and it was after the prosecution had se
cured a continuance of the cause on the ground of
the absence ot John Jennings, and It Is a singular
fact that none of the Jennings ever appeared aa a
witness against Houston. Asking that you give this
a place In your rolnmns In order that Justice may bt
done a worthr cjtlzen. I remain, rery truly.

Mr. A. Aulgur, 703 Jackson street, carpen
ter and builder, who hall suffered from ca
tarrh of head and throat, asthma and bron
chial disease, was cured by Dr. Branaman.
He writes: "I had taken all manner oC
treatment, patent medicines and the pre
scriptions of private physicians, until
was thoroughly disgusted. Not one of them
did me any good. I used to reside at Lin
coln, Neb., and my home physician there
stated that nothing could cure me, but
that I might linger for a few years If T.
went South. With that consoling advice, t
did go South, but the change gave me no
relief.
"My brother. Barry Aulgur, of Marshall,
Mo had been similarly afflicted, nnd bad
been given up to die. This was last fall.
He began treatment from Dr. Branaman.
and the change that he experienced was
something marvelous. He began to im

restored to perfect health. He wrote me.
telling of his good fortune In regainings
his health, and advised me to begin treat
ment under Dr. Branaman's care. I wast
rather reluctant to do so. as I had lost all
faith in doctors; but finally I was Indeed
to try It, and the relief I immediately felc
proved to me conclusively that the Brana
man treatment was the only sure cure foe
asthma, catarrh and bronchial disease.
"After two months' treatment I consider
