The locomotives and the first cars were telescoped. Wild in the Wheat Fit. Chicago, Jan. Ii, \\ heat was wild on the market today. The shorts were panic stricken on re ports of a clash between Russian and Japanese troops and their heavy bidding advanced the market nearly two cents and a half at the start. Profit taking was heavy,but the buying demand continued and the close was strong, with May at eight and one-quarter, an advance of about two and a quarter cents. Cash wheat, niuetv to ninetv-one. Idaho-St. Louir Exposi tion. Boise, Idaho, Jan. 4. -The St. Louis and Lewis and Clarke Fair Commission, appointed by Gover nor Morrison to obtain and install the State Exhibit at these Exposi tions, find at this time, when necessary expenses may be accur ately determined, that the appro priation made by the State Legislature for the Exhibit at St. Louis, is too small. Unless it can /6 a tl t X Ps.

This, thé Governor, other state officials, and : the Commission, regret so keenly that tliev have decided to make an thought that with the limited ap propriation, a State Building would not be politic. 1 lie announcement of this raised a storm of protest throughout the State. It was said that Idaho must not be the only state in the union not represented by a state building. So vigorous appeal for additional funds by pri vate subscription. Before the commission was or ganized the individual members , I and unanimous was the sentiment in favor of a building that the Commission could not ignore it. It was thought that perhaps ex penses in other directions could be reduced so as to admit of an ex penditure of $5,000 for a building that would be a home for Idaho people. Plans for what the Com mission considered an ideal struct ure, modest, but in keeping with the dignity of the State, were drawn. The lowest estimate made by Idaho builders was $0,000. The Executive Commissioner and Superintendent of Structure found that they could not let the con tract in St. Louis for less than $7,500, building material being excessively higher there. This was $2,500 more than the manage ment originally contemplated for a building appropriation. The Commission is making spec ial efforts to present creditable displays in mining, agricultural, horticultural and educational de partments. The first mentioned two are practically complete. Ida ho's Mining Exhibit will unques tionably be one of the best made by any state. Her display in agricul ture will be a source of wonderment to people living in other states. In the face of extreme difficulty the Commission has obtained one car of apples, which has been shipped to St. Louis and placed in cold storage. While the apples secured are of splendid quality, are of it is feared that the quantity is sufficient to attract lot the attention that the exhibits merits. The Commissioner is working earnestly to make a - first-class exhibit, but , unless the funds at its disposal can 1 be increased to near the amount of the cost of the building, the display will fall short of the ideal and the expectations of the people may not ! be realized. Idaho is the only state, with a small appropriation, which has i not increased it by private sub-1 scription. Oregon has an appro priation of 150,000 and a private ] subscription of $40,000. Washing-! ton has an appropriation of $70,000 and a private subscription of $10, I 000. Nevada has an appropriation! of $'20,000 and a private subscript ion of $25,000. Colorado with an appropriation of $150,000 did not consider she could afford a building and is now raising $120,000 for a State building, which the women of the state will furnish. Idaho women have come nobly to the rescue and are now engaged in raising $1,000 for the furnish ing of the Woman's room in .the State building. The Commission intakes an appeal to the citizens of; the State for contributions, large or small, to the World's Fair fund, in order that Idaho may not be in the rear of the great Western pro cession and enterprise. All con tributions should be sent to C. B. Hurtt, Executive Commissioner, Boise, Idaho, who will turn them over to the State Treasurer, and the same will be acknowledged by him privately by receipt, and pub licly by the Commission. Signed, Henrietta Mansfield, Sec. C. B. Hurtt, Executive Committeeman. 1 ! i ] j j ] i i 1 : ! ! ' A WIFE'S CONFESSION. How a Girl's Strategy Won. ' ?'/;>: F course every.one q knew when tin v % were engaged and every one pretended Ur be surprised when they heard it was sud denly broken off. It wa s 'firs. s*td she had broken it off. then that ■//.u his heart had changed. ' (/ but finally she confessed that -, ■ / she had been so irritable, so dc s;-;,/ pressed and bitte that she had fairly driven hint away. Her good looks were vanishing. She was gi l ting thin, pale, and hollow cheeked, with dark circles around her eyes. Suddenly all society was pleased again to hear of the engagement being renewed, and it was not long before a beautiful and radiant onde was taken to the altar. She had regained he- good looks, her former happy dtspost non and strong nerve all through ascot t a friend gave her. A wife had confessed to her that she had almost driven her litis band to suicide with her bad temper, her nervousness und irritability, and sue bud found that it all developed from a weakness of the womanly .organs. A few months treatment with Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre scription completely changed her ; she hud cured herself and again made the home happy. A few bottles of Dr. Pierce's ha voiite Prescription is what made two more lives happy and a radiant bride more beau tiful than she had ever appeared before. Normally a woman should have no dis comfort so far as feelings of distress are concerned, at « ach recurring period. But modern civilization lias added its condi tions of ever-present suffering to a laige proportion of American women. I he ma jority of such cases are due to local inflam matory or congested conditions which can be overcome by the right treatment. Of course, this local irritation is followed by headaches, backaches, nervousness, irrita bility, and, indeed, often results in nervous prostration or collapse which might have been avoided bv proper treatment. As soon as the organs essentially fem inine get out of order, or a catarrhal condi tion exists, this disturbance is telegraphed throughout the whole system by the sym pathetic neiv. - and the woman will si . from pain in head and extreme nervous ness. In all such cases an aggravating feature is usually HABITUAL constipa tion, and this should be corrected by the use of a good veget able laxative just privi ous to the time for re currence of the pains. The local disorder and inflammation of the delicate, special or gans of the sex should be treated steadily and systematically. Doctor Pierce has advised his "Favorite Proscrip tion " so many times in the diseases peculiar to w o m e u t hat lie knows it's an unfailing remedy in most of the disorders of the sex.

From this fact it will readily be seen how utterly foolish it would h.- for them to make the above unprece dented and remarkable offer if they were not basing their offer on curative means having an unparalleled record. No other mi divine than Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre scription could possibly "win out,'' a.-, the saying goes, on such a proposition. But thev know whereof they speak.
