Almost everybody needs a tonic in the
spring. Something to brace the nerves,
Invigorate the brain, and cleanse the
blood. That Peruna will do this It be
yond all question.

very difficult to overcome.

Ptomaine Poisoning in
Berries Caused Death.
Carthage, Mo., June 10. Ptomaine
poisoning from eating strawberries
caused the death of Mrs. George G.
Buckyell of this city. This is the
verdict of the Coroner announced to
day. Mrs. Buckwell, who was a promin
ent society woman here, died very
suddenly about ten days ago. Her
case was of particular interest to
local scientists la that while she
seemed to have suffered strychnine
poisoning there was none of the drag

A post-mortem was held and the
tomaqh was removed and sent
to Jersey City for analysis. The
Coroner's verdict is in accordance
with the finding of the New Jersey
scientists who say that effects of
ptomaine poisoning -from eating
strawberries are very similar to
those attending death from strych
nine. A thorough chilling of the
berries removes the possibility of

Pe ru -nn Contains No Narcotic.
One reason why Peruna has found per
manent use in so many bomes is that it
contains no narcotic of any kind. Pe
runa is perfectly harmless. It can be

It has no bad effect upon the system,
and gradually eliminates catarrh by re

How a Sleek Stranger Swindled
Charley Whitney, the popular M ,
K. & T. conductor, was enjoying a
home siesta and a quiet pipe Friday
afternoon at his Sedalia home,-when
a delivery wagon drove np and men
commenced to unload a big steel
range. "How about this," asked
Don't know, sir; ordered to deliver
it." was the answer. Mr. Whitney
called tip the Ilgenfrltx Hardware
Co., and learned to his surprise that
the range had been bought, paid for
and ordered to his home.
"This is sure like Christmas," mus
ed Whitney, but I'll be on the safe
side." And he ordered the men back
with the range. They had hardly
got out of sight before a furniture
man drove up, and Mr. Whitney
found a fine leather covered couch
had been bought, paid for and order
ed to his house. This was from Mc
Laughlin's furniture store.
Whitney ordered it back, and in a
few moments Lodge, Staley & Co.'s
furniture man drove up with another
big leather couch for Whitney.
Mr. Whitney decided there must be
some "funny business" somewhere;
so he called up Ilgenfritz again and
learned that the man who Imperson
ated him had tendered a check and
received 35 in good money a
change. He bought at various stores
this way two couches and two ranges,
receiving f 35.00 from each. The
checks were found to be bogus and
the swindler was 9140 to the good
and made his "get-away" safely.
The strange part of it Is there
is no better known Sedalian than
Conductor Whitney. It Is In
comprehensible how a swindler as
suming his name could operate so
successfully among his personal
friends and neighbors Henry Co.

of the Orthodox Church. Let it be a
picture. A hut, in which a man lies
pass ere tU last sacrament be ad
ministered to him. The shaggy,
long-robed pope has come, and the
gear is laid ready; but ere he will get
to his work and unburden the poor
soul he will have an enhanced price
for it. The wife of the dying man
comes from the side of the squalid
bed and pleads with him. He leers
and is obdurate. Then a son will
compel him, and they fight about the
room, while the" shaking patient
stares from his pillow. The priest
seizes the bread and tries to break it,
for broken bread may not be blessed,
while the son of the dying man grasps
his arm to save it, and In the wrestle
the little loaf crumbles at last, and
the sick man closes his eyes with a
sigh of despair, awaiting death and

MAN TO BE INVESTIGATED.
Flint, Mich., June 9 Vice Presi
dent Fairbanks was addressing an
enthusiastic assemblage of 2U00 per
sons in the public square to-day,
when James McConnell, 32 years old
attempted to shoot him.
Mr. Fairbanks had been speaking
for nearly twenty minutes, when Mc
Connell, who had been slowly mak
ing his way through the crowd, made
a bold effort to reach the side of the
speaker. His right hand was placed
on a rusty revolver in his hip pocket
as he surveyed Fairbanks and then
made a quick movement as if to at
tack the vice president. In the
struggle with four detectives, Mc
Connell had to be choked into sub

patrol wagon he maintained that
his time would come soon; that he
would yet be able to carry out his
purpose and assassinate the vice

through the streets was an infuriated
mob, mostly strangers, who were de
termined to take the law into their

parade, seemed to meet with appro
val from sightseers.

Four Year Terms.
The Nevada Mall says: "In Nates
county one term for a fouryearcoun
ty office has become an unwritten
law, and It is held sacred by the al
most unanimous consent of voters.
Loug lease of official life. Hates coun
ty voters contend, breeds contempt
among the holders and hns a tend
ency to corruption in high places.
Besides, it keeps good, competent,
deserving men out of official place,
to which they are in every way as
much entitled as those who are gorg
ing themselves with official gain.
Rotation in office has worked well in
Bates county. It has stopped deep
seated greed for the beet offices of the
county, honored more men with
place, strengthened the Democratic
party, and, because of more frequent
final settlements, has protected the
