Joseph 1L Stoddart, who probably knows and has known intimately more great lit erary men and other men of prominence In America, and England than falls to the lot of ev en a few mortals, was In Kansas City yesterday. Immediately after the civil war and until the lato '70s, Mr. Stoddart was editor of Lipplncotfs magazine and In that capacity met and enjoy ed the friendship of "Walt Whitman, Longfellow, Bryant, Ten nyson and a host of .others. Among the younger men In America and England he knows Gilbert Parker, Oscar 'Wilde, Charles G. D. Roberts, Bliss Carmen and In fact all who have ever pointed a moral or adorned a tale. Seated In a large leather oblivion chair at the Coates House last night. Mr. Stod dart discussed some of the great men of the century in a most Interesting and per sonal way. The conersation happened to turn on the emoluments of authors. "Impractical as are many men of let ters and geniuses at large," he remarked with just the suggestion of a twinkle in his eyes, "there are some shining excep- gnwnnnnniHBBnnunminy The Slave S Of Circumstance Z . and Condition - H SUFFERS C If He Uses the Wrong Kind of 3 S Food, He Thrives on 3 i QrapeNuts. NATURAL FOOD. For Hiuhly Orsnnlzed People. How to select food that will make a sick body well is a problem. There are food experts that make that question the study of their lives; to know what the human body Is built of. and just where to look for the nerv e elements in the grains, fruits and other forms of food furnished by Mother Nature. The food Grape-Nuts was originated for a reason, and 1th the abov e facts In view. It Is perhaps the most popular food on the American table to-day, for, while it has been In use but a little oer a ieor. many of the best people have dlscoered its un questioned alue. It. is pre-dlgested and ready for Imme diate assimilation. It is also thoroughly cooked at the factory, and therefore ready for instant service. Grape-Nuts can be di gested by a child in arms, and Is appre ciated by the athlete because of Its fiaor and strength.

" Seexal iet;ks ago we advertised a free distribution of ANTI-PILL samples (the cutest little package -ou cer saiv), and the demand -was so great that our supply of samples was completely exhausted. Last week we received another supply, which we will distribute absolutely free to all persons calling at any one of the following adver tised drug stores on Monday, TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY.

CSTY HAMLIN tlons. Longfellow was one. It was a com mon saying among publishers that Long fellow -was after a check before the bind ing was dry. It Is well known that Ten nyson could see a dollar without a tele scope. And this very regard for the value of money was of great beneflt to both men and also to their work. Poe, Hood and others died .poor and before their time. Whitman lived from hand to mouth all the days of his life." As a great many people consider Whit man the greatest philosopher of the age and one of the great poets of all time, it would be interesting to hear him discussed by one who knew him so intimately. Whit man was for many years an almost daily visitor in the office of the editor of Lip plncotfs magazine In Philadelphia. The good gray poet was then well along in years and was somewhat of an lnialld. He had contracted rheumatism and un dermined his health during the war nurs ing the soldiers on the field and in the army hospitals around Washington. "Before this arduous experience," said Mr. Stoddart, "Whitman had perfect health and a magnificent physique. He stood oer six feet, and had the broadest pair of shoulders I ever saw. In those das he wore a loose flannel shirt with an cpen collar that displayed his neck and muscular development to full advantage. It was a sight that attracted dally attention on Pennsylvania avenue when Walt Whit man passed from his lodgings to one of the various hospitals around the capital. Anecdote of Lincoln. "One day I happened to be talking with President Lincoln In the office of the old Wlllard hotel. Lincoln was a great admirer of physical manhood and was a great ath lete himself in some respects I have seen him lift a barrel of wrhlsky and put it in a position to drink out of the bung. Needless to say, he did not swallow the liquor, being a total ab stainer. I hae also seen him tear a deck of cards In two with his hands so strong was his wrist development. But. as I re marked, w e were standing at the front win dow of the old Willard w hen Whitman hove In sight. Tall, broad-shouldered, and walk Irg with a peculiar swinging gait that be tokened both power of limb and easy as surance in his strength, his was a tigure uf mark that crisp winter afternoon. No sooner had Lincoln seen him than he ex claimed, "There goes a man! Give me an army of such and the war will be ended in six months.' He did not know Whitman then, but they afterward became great friends. On the death of Lincoln the national dis may was voiced by Walt Whitman in his wonderful psalm, "When Lilacs Last In the Doorjard Bloomed,' pronounced by Inger soll to be the greatest poem of the cen tury." An interested group of listeners had been attracted at the mention of Lincoln by a man who knew the great president and emancipator. Whitman was still the sub ject under discussion, however, and they stayed to hear him tell how Whitman was discharged from the government service in Washington on the publication of his first book, "Leaves of Grass." This book, which Is now considered one of the most profound pieces of literature in the language, was at one time denied transmission through the mails. Mr. Stoddart continued: "When I was editing Lipplncotfs In Philadelphia a great many pilgrims came annually to see Whitman. "Ho lived across the river In Camden, N. J. I suppose I have taken hundreds who were really pilgrims, for they would come from all parts of the world, over to that little frame -house in Camden. Oscar Wilde, on his iirst visit to America, was one of them An Incident that happened during my call with Wilde shows In what veneration Whitman was held. After we were seated he brought out some elderberry wlne which tasted vile bevond description. Wilde drank two or three glasses with evident relish and when we left I asked him how he liked it. 'It was poor stuff,' he said, 'but I would have drank it had it been vinegar.' Whitman was Inclined to be vain of his work; but, then, was not the sum and substance of his philosophy to loaf at ease and admire himself?" The mention of Wilde brought up the names or several other English men of let ters, and among them Tennyson. "Tennvson," said Mr. Stoddart. "could never quite overcome an Inherent dislike cf Americans. He Was patrician through and through and had a hearty distaste for democracy in its American form. One evening a party of literary men had gath ered In London and Tennyson was present. He had a great fashion of cocking hl3 feet up on the mantel or any place where there was enough room for them at a suitable at titude.

Tenny son was obdurate until someone asserted that It was a favorite custom with Amri- cf.ni.to. adopt,tne same Position on the slightest occasion. No sooner were the words out than down came the feet, never to rise again." Mr. Stoddart has been frequently urged to write a book on his reminiscences during a period of forty years as Journalist, editor, publisher and man of letters, and he may do so some day. It will be a fitting period to a most eventful and distinguished career. He edited a weekly In London for several years and is at present connected nith George Barrie & Son. of Philadelphia, in the publishing business. Some time ago mention was made of htm in connection with a periodical, to be started In either New York or Philadelphia, with William Dean How ells in the editorial chair.

Those who have had to search the old sty le encyclopaedias for some necessary in formation (and often In vnin , a ,.,ii,.j the necessity of a work which would enable mem io get at ciesirea racts conveniently and quickly. In most cases It is what may be styled "gereral information" that is sought alter. It may be, for instance, the spelling, pro nunciation or various meanings of a word, the sketch of some person who has sudden ly become prominent, the location or a place or the description of a recent event. The particular fact desired may not be considered or enough importance to war rant ono In reading through several col umns or pages of some encyclopaedia, and often with indifferent success. Rather than do this one is tempted to neglect "looking up things," and thes.e. If passed lightly over, remain as stumbling blocks to future progress. Then, again, a reference work, to be a real, up-to-date, time-saving convenience to the busy men or women, should be able to tell quickly and accurately all these things without compelling them to consult half a dozen different works. This problem has been completely solvd In the American Dictionary and Cyclopae dia only. This many-sided reference library constitutes four great works in one, viz.: An exhaustive dictionary, containing over 25,000 more words than any other; a com prehensive encyclopaedia, treating over 53 0X subjects (the Britanntca treats only about 20,o00); a splendid general atlas of over 100 superb colored maps, and a com plete gazetteer, which fairly bristles with valuable and interesting late statistics. But, of course, cost is a more or less Im portant consideration in the purchase of a reference work, and in the present instance the problem has also been most successful ly solved. The specially fortunate arrange ment concluded by The Kantas City Jour ral to Introduce the work here has brought about a reduction of over one-half from the price which will prevail when this introduc tory distribution Is over. Readers should, therefore, apply for par ticulars at once, either personally or by letter, so as to secure one of the sets before the distribution closes, which will be in a very short time.

BERNHEIflER, BROS. EYES ARE OPENED TAXPAYERS AROUSED OVER LOOT ING OF COTJXTY TRE VSL'RY. ON THE VERGE OF BANKRUPTCY RECKLESS EXTRAVAGANCE WAS OVERLOOKED LST CAMPAIGX. Promiaea of Reform Have Never Been Kept by Those Who Had Charge of Books and Directed Fi nancial Policy of the County. The bankrupt condition of Jackson coun ty, brought about by the gang, has caused the farmer taxpaying element to at last get its eyes open to the looting of the treasury by the county- gang. During the last county campaign it was heralded abroad that there was a deficit, caused by- useless deputies, taken on to absorb the revenue and build up a greater political machine. The vote showed a partial revolt in country districts. Many taxpayers, how ever, closed their ears to the arguments made from the stump, and succumbed to the plausible arguments or the gangsters and were led to believe that there was no necessity- or a change In the management or county affairs. The reckless extrava gance in office and the certainty that the expense or the county- was greatly In ex cess ot its revenue, and that a bankrupt treasury already existed It the debts or the county were paid, were arguments that were overlooked by many in the heat or the campaign. When the electioji was over the county machine had won out by reason ot promises or rerorm on the one hand and promises ot political tavors on the other. Those who had charge of the books and directed the financial policy of the county hav e nev er made their promise good to the taxpayers, and no reform was ever insti tuted. The necessity of securing money from other funds by borrowing from the road fund was tried, it is said, but with tho increase of expense and the theory that the county- was not getting out of debt by borrowing was apparent to the treasurer, who held the funds. The borrowing of funds to pay the extravagant number of deputies and salaries or county- officials, it is said, was a necessity. statute bearing on the case is as fol lows: on "665 COUNTY REVENUE TO BE SEP ARATED AND DIVIDED. It shall be the duty of the county treasurer to separate and subdivide the revenues of such county la his hands, as they come Into his hands. In compliance 'With such order of the court and the provisions of this charter, and It shall be his duty to pay out the revenues thus subdivided on war rants Issued by order of the court, on the respective funds so set apart and subdivided, and not other wise. And for this purpose the treasurer shall keep a separate account with the county court of each fund, which several funds, shall be known and desig nated respectively as the pauper fund, road and bridge fund, fund for the payment ot the salary of county officers, fund for the payment of fees for grand and petit Jurors, Judges and clerks of elec tions and witnesses for the grand Jury, and con Dress Goods.

The growing deficit has been known to the county court and to the county treas urer and the bankrupt treasury is a mute testimonial of the management ot county affairs. The rank and file are thoroughly wrought up over the situation. The Jackson Examiner, one of the lead ing Democratic papers of Jackson county, has the following to say: During the campaign last year the Examiner pointed out the eitrvagances of which the county court was guilty and said that but one result would follow such management, an empty treasury In the county. This was denied. It was even denied that the county was In extravagant hands. The asso ciate Judge was elected presiding Judge and given wider powers. More deputies were added Immediate ly after the election. Official pets were put where they could draw salary. The officials organ was assured of support and the doors thrown wide open. Later this paper again called attention to the situa tion and showed that there was no money In the treasury, that by a Juggling ot figures the court was able to show a balance on January 1 when there would have been shown a deficit had the true situation been understood, where extravagance was following extravagance without check and regardless of results, yet these warnings seemd to fall on deaf ears and there was no change. Then a few weeks ago we showed from official sources that th county was running behind at the rate of from Si: 000 to J1S.000 a month and that the deficit for this year waa going to be greater than last. Still all the warrants were paid and we were called a croker and calamity howler. Now somebody else Is doing the howling. Salaries remain unpaid for last month and the prospect for payment next montn is not very good. This dirt not come about because the condition of affairs Is any worse than It has been for six months, but BRAIN FOOD Is of Little Benefit Unless It Is Digested. Nearly everyone will admit that as a na tion we eat too much meat and too little of vegetables and the grains. For business men, office men and clerks, and In fact everyone engaged in sedentary or indoor occupations, grains, milk and vegetables are much more healthful. Only men engaged In a severe outdoor manual labor can live on a heavy meat diet and continue in health. As a general rule, meat once a day Is sufficient for all classes of men, women and children, and grains, fruit and vegetables should constitute the bulk of food eaten But many- of the most nutritious roods are difficult of digestion and It Is ot no use to advise brain workers to eat largely ot grains and vegetables where the digestion is too weak to assimilate them properly. It is always best to get the best results trom our rood that some simple and harm less digestive should be taken after meals to assist tne relaxed digestive organs, and several years" experience have proven Stu art's Dyspepsia Tablets to be a very safe, pleasant and effective digestive and a remedy- which may be taken dally with the best results. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets can hardly be called a patent medicine, as they do not act on the bowel1 nor any particular organ, but only- on the food eaten. They supply what weak stomachs lack, pepsin diastase, and by stimulating the gastric glands In crease the natural secretion of hydrochlor ic acid. People who make a daily practice of tak ing one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab lets after each meal are sure to have per fect digestion, which means perfect health. There Is no danger of forming an Injuri ous habit, as the tablets contain absolutely nothing but natural digestives; cocaine, morphine and similar drugs have no place in a stomach medicine, and Stuart's Dy spepsia Tablets are certainly the best known and most popular of stomach reme dies Ask your druggist for a fifty cent pack age of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and af ter a week's use note the Improvement In health, appetite and nervous energy.

Enough debt has been saddled on the county this year with that of last year to take up the big collections in December from which the court expects to meet Its obligations. Then the county will begin the year with nothing on hand and nothing coming In. It Is already apparent that the situation will sot be met by economy In oflcial circles. Political debts must be paid and political workers cared for. If a bond Issue for an asylum would suddenly put 5:00,000 in cash at the disposal ot the county court It would be fine to borrow from and micht tide over tne situation until a new assessor could be Induced to raise all the asse.sments to a figure which would produce enough revenue to run the county In the extravagant manner which suits these in control. HOTEL WASN'T AFIRE. Boston Mistook the Morning- Whistles for an Alarm, bat Didn't Get Excited. From the New York Sun. The Boston woman arrived early and went to her favorite hotel. Like many other Boston women. If she buys a winter hat, a silk waist and a pair of new gloves in the metropolis, she goes home with a feeling of fashion that lasts her until her next trip over. AH Boston people say "over" to Xew York, even those who come on a larger scale than the average one- silk waisters. The particular Boston wom an in question always declares thit Xew York seems country tied to her because she can't get anything to eat In the Grand Central station, as she can In stations in Boston or London, and because the horse cars go by. "But speaking or countrified things," she confessed in a casual interview- yestsrday, "I am. I suppose, myself the most countri fied thing I ever met; and as I don't object to a joke on myself. 1 11 tell what I did the other night. I neglected telegraphing on for a room, and as the city is so crowd ed I had to take a little room opening on a court the first night ot my stay. Along in the dark hours somewhere I was awak ened by the alarms. Ot course. I thought 01 tne winusor, out 1 Hunt get in a panic. I just quietly- dres-ed. putting my- chier val uables in my handbag as I did so, and get ting my dresses back into my trunk. I worked as fast as I could, rlnglne mv bell from time to time, for I wished to ask the bellboy- u the tire had got to my door yet. I was just dressed and ready- to go "out and see for mytelf when a boy appeared with a pitcher of lcewater. "Is the fire on this floor?" I ask;d him. "'Heat ain't on.' he answered. " "This is no time for Joking," I said. Ts the fire In the hotel yet?' "And all that time the most awful whis tling and blowing had been going on. for ten minutes at least. There ain't no fire.' said the boy with a patronizing grin. " 'I'm not at all nervous or alarmed,' I said, firmly, 'and you might just as well tell me if there is time to get my trunk out? So saying, I put on my hat and took up my handbag. " 'Honest, ma'am, there ain't no fire,' said the boy. " 'But there's the alarm." "'Them's the whistles.' "The whistles? What time or night Is It?' " "Tain't night. It's 7 o'clock. Them's the whistles.' " 'Very well. That will do. I don't care for the Ice water.thank you." I said. Then I shut the door and went and looked out ot my darkened window upon the court and saw the familiar light of day- struggling down, and heard the cheerful yells and calls of industrious steam summoning the workers to work.

"I would ratter my daughters should ba born pretty than good," said a mother. "I can train them to be good, but I cannot make them pretty." She spoke somewhat jeeringly. but she was half right. naiT wrong. It Is almost as easy- to train chil dren to be attractive in appearance as in character. There are traits or blood which no amount of training can overcome, and there are homely faces which constant care from babyhood will nev er render more than passably good looking; yet childish figures, like young trees, may be rendered shapely by physical culture, while complexion Is largely a matter ot diet, of bathing and of exercise. Egyptologists tell us that the wonderful beauty of the Egyptian princesses must be attributed to the careful physical cul ture given to each daughter of the royal ramlly from the moment or her birth, and many or the methods of skin-cultur prac ticed by the specialists of to-day have been revived from the papyri of old Egypt. The hair may be cultivated: so also may the teeth: lessons from a good dancing; master In early childhood rarely fall to give the ease of carriage and grace of poise which are among the chief Items of the Indefinable whole which we designate as "sty le." Gymnastic exercises, judicious ly taken, develop the figure and Improve the health, without which there can be no true beauty, and few people will v enture to deny- that dress does make a great deal of difference quite as much a3 the frame and the light in which It la hung make in the appearance of a picture. But above all the true secret of beauty lies in cheerfulness and good temper. Tha fairest face becomes repulsive when dis torted by- passion or soured by 111 temper, while the plainest features grow beautiful when glorified by- the light of a beautiful souL lie Also Got a. Shave. From the Chicago Times-Herald. It was the fifth anniversary of their wed ding day and they were going to celebrate it by attending the opera. After finishing an after dinner cigar, the husband called his wife in an adjoining room. "Are you ready, my dear?" "In a minute. love." she replied. 'Tvo only to put my bonnet and gloves on." "Oh. very- well." he replied. "That will just give me time to run down to tha barber shop and get my htlr cut." "Witere Ignorance la Bllss, Etc. From Life. She "Don't you think, dear. It would have been better to look up that cook's references?" He "Dear me, mo. been satisfactory." They might not havo A Severe Cold. "A very simple measure In the very be ginning of a cold," says the Baltimore, O . Xews, "13 to take a hot bath until the per spiration is established, and then wrap the body In two or three warm dry blankets In a warm room, so that there will be free perspiration ror an hour. The body should then be rubbed and dried, and the Individ ual should go to bed without any exposure, and remain there trom 12 to 36 hours, or until the symptoms ot the cold have entirely- disappeared." ir you should venture out before the end of 3C hours you would be almost certain to contract a worse cold and perhaps pneumonia. Would It not be bet ter to take a tablespoonftil (rour times tho usual dose) ot Chamberlain's Cough Rem edy just before going to bed? That would effectually- break up the cold. Then you could go about y our business as usual with out any fear of pneumonia, as it counter acts any tendency of a cold to result in that dangerous disease. K?------.
