SEEDING IS BACKWARD THIS TIME LAST YEAR IT WAS .MOKE THAN HALF DONE NOT EVEN A START MADE YET An Authority on the Situation Tells of Existing: Conditions and What MiKhi Possibly B« the Results, of the Snotv In the Southern Por tions and the Frost in the North ern Portions of the Northwest. Considerable Interest is being mani fested In grain circles over present and prospective conditions in the Northwest, for spring seeding of grain. At this period, one year ago, the work \\;.s more than half done in Nebraska anu Northern lowa, and well started in Southern Minnesota and South Dakota. April 25, last spring, the seeding had bun finished even in the extreme north ern sections. Speaking about the situa tion a man in position to know what he is talking about, says: "Conditions prevailing this spring have prevented any start being made thus far. Throughout the southern and central I ortion of the spring wheat territory the ground is still covered with snow, or in too wet a condition. In the northern ter ritory,, while there is almost an entire absence of snow, the ground is frozen deeply, and the weather has been cold and backward. Present conditions indi cate that even under most favorable cir cumstances from this time forward, seed ing ran not be completed before the 10th to the 15th of May, or from three to four weeks later than last year. "This tact causes more or less appre hension among farmers that the wheat may be caught in the soft or 'dough' stage by the hot July winds, resulting in a rusted and blighted crop. Late seed ing also implies a late harvest, and dan ger Horn early frosts in the northern country. These features of the situa tion will naturally tend to a reduced acreage in wheat as compared wfco last year. and all increased sowing of flax and coarse grain. It will also give the speculators something to think and talk Rbout for a time at least. "Ordinarily the farmers' of the south ern portion of the spring wheat bejt are enabled to commence spring work from two to three weeks in advance of their northern neighbors, but owing to the comparative absence of snow in the i orthern section this year, it is not like ly that such an advantage will be en joyeo. "A weeks continuance of the present moderate weather and thawing condi tions would enable a general start to bf made in wheat seeding in Minnesota a:,(\ the Dakotas. ' POPE'S HEALTH GOOD.

BIGHTS OF HUSBANDS. Jndge Peabody, of St. Louis. Defends His Ruling on Wife Beating. ST. LOUIS, April 7.— Judge Thomas H. Peabody, of the first district police court, who discharged Bernard Kretzer, charged with wife-beating, on the ground that there are times when a husband who slaps his wife, but does not actually in jure her, should not be punished, had this to say today in defense of his decision: "When I ruled that Kretzer was not guilty for beating his wife I did not want to be set down as a wife-beater, but there are cases when men are driven to emo tional Insanity, and what they do then they are not always accountable for. If Kretzer had harmed her or done any bodily Injury it would have been different. In the case I had before me she was more guilty than he for trying to counter act and thwart her husband's will in the presence of their children. It was set ting a bad example which he had the right to rebuke. "When a woman takes a man for her husbßnd she does so knowing full well that he is to be the ruler of the house, and shall have as much to say as she. When ever there is a dispute between them and the husband's desire is a good one It should certainly be acceded to. ' If he is then provoked to undue anger I think he would be partly Justified in striking her. A whole lot depends upon the wom an. There are women and there are others. It is my misfortune to have to deal with a few of the 'others.' As a rule they are disagreeable women, with whom it would be impossible to get along without giving them an occasional 'dres sing down.' As soon as a woman mounts the witness stand I can tell if she is a 'highbinder.' "It would be a good thing to warn the women of the country that their hus bands have the same rights that they | have in the home, and they should al- I ways be respected. A man should have ! the right to slap a wife occasionally, but he should be very careful whose wife he slaps." MOCK ELECTION LEGAL. Man Choweu Mayor of Bronnon, Kan.. Who Received Five Votes.

Kuiy Title Before the Duluth « onipwnj Had Definitely Located. fudges Otis and Bunn in district court, yesterday, filed a decision in favor of the plaintiffs in the case of Edwin H. McHenry and Frank G. Bigelow as re eelvera of the Northern Pacific Railway company against the St. Paul & Duluth Railway company. The decision which is accompanied by two memorandums and involves several fine points of law has the result of quieting title to certain lands in Carlton county claimed by both roads. On May 5, ISGI, congress authorized the legislature to grant five sections of land for every mile of road in the construc tion of a line from St. Paul to the head of the lakes with indemnity land to be taken within ten miles either side of the right of way. On July 2. 1864, congress passed the Northern Pacific land grant bill, -which gave the road ten sections per mile in all of the states through which the road should pass with the in demnity . lard to be taken within ten miles of cither side of the right of way. In 1865 the legislature granted a fran chise to the Lake Superior and Missouri Railway company to construct a line under the act of May 5, 1864. It was afterwaids lound In 1860 that a portion of the road ran close to the state boun dary that there was no chance for tho selection of the indemnity land on one side of the road bed. Accordingly the act of May 5, 1864, was amended to give the road the right to select Indemnity lands thirty miles west of the line. This in Carlton county conflicted with the Northern Pacific grant and the Northern Pacific brought suit to quiet the title against the St. Paul & Duluth road as the successor of the Lake Superior & Mississippi road. Both judges hod with the Northern Pacific for the reason as expressed in the memorandum that under the terms of the Northern Pacific act the title to lands afterwards definitely located be came vested in the company from the time of the passage of the act and that the act under which the St. Paul & Du lut'i claimed title did not vest the title until definitely located. MOTHER GETS HER CHILD. Judge Bazille Decideti Mm. Toiicey Is Entitled to Little Leo. Leo Blanche, the year-old Jbuby whose parentage and custody have bicn in dis pute in the probate court, was, yesterday, turned over to Mi >s ». Toucey, the mother, after an extended hearing before Judge Bazille. Rev. E. P. Savage, of the Chil dren's home, was removed as guardian. The small object of dispute was not in court, but Mrs. Ezra Toucey, who claim ed to have been the mother, while Miss May Whitcomb, Miss Nellie Gordon, her cousin, Dr. Dohm, Mr. Toucey and Attor ney T. J. MeDermott, were all on hand to look atter the interests of Mrs. Toucey. The rival claimant, Mrs. Mary Simmons, of 437 East Seventh street, was repre sented by Rev. E. P. Savage, Lieut. Po then, Humane Agent Moak and Attorney Mangan. Dr. Dohm testified that he had been called to the Glenwood hotel to attend the child six day* after its birth. He had seen Mrs. Toucey and was positive that she was the mother. Miss Gordon said the birth had taken place in her room on Feb. 15, 1898, and she had seen Leo Blanche when only three hours old. Finally Mrs. Toucey herself was called to the stand. She said that after the lit tle one was born she had observed that it had better be taken to an asylum or a home, as she was unable to care for it. Mrs. Simmons, the neighbor who now wants to adopt the child, had objected and offered to care for it herself. She was permitted to take the baby and kept it six months, during which time the mother had paid $3 per week as board. When she took little Leo from Mrs. Sim mons there was 127 due which she paid at the time. "It is my child and I want it," said Mrs. Toucey. Attorney Mangan, who had been cross examining the witnesses, told the court that he knew nothing of the Minneapolis woman who claimed to be the mother, but he was prepared to show that Mrs. Toucey had several times denied the par entage of the child in the presence of Mrs. Simmons. The court ruled out the hearsay testi mony and awarded the child to its moth er, who wept with emotion, and Mrs Simmons also burst into tears when the decision was announced. SIPHEME COIHT DECISIONS.

In Such Pain That He Could Not Walk Two Blocks Withont Sit ting Down to Rest Himself. ST. PAUn-Mlnn.. April 5.-To those who know <John Sheldrick well the) changed condttMn bf his health seems truly wondftful. Speaking of his case Mr. Shelsrl£k says: "I hay«£ Deen a sufferer from Kidney Trouble and Acute Rheumatism for the past 12 yeiirs and I have used all kinds of medicine." All were of no avail until I commenced fusing Dodd's" Kidney pills After using'/ twos boxes I was cured. 1 feel today ten years younger than be fore, when I could not go two blocks without sitting down to rest, on account of the pain in my back, across the kid neys. I thank God that the Divine Prov idence led me to use those pills. I can recommend them to all sufferers from kidney troubles as being the best thing that can be had. as I have experimented on every and all kinds of medicine and have never found Its equal. I feel It my duty to let tfce world know Its merits. They have made' a new man of me." Mr. Sheldrick lives at 506 S'bley street. He is always ready to speak a good word for Dodd's Kidney Pills, and many who have followed his aavlce have been cur ed of Kidney . Diseases in advanced stages. Dodd's Kidney Pills- are sold by Drug gists at 50 cents ajjftj 'or six boxes for $2.50: -Senfon receipt of price "toy Dodd's Medicine Co., Buffalo, Jj. y. L^y I l^J\^f/^Vw^O I WOMAN^EDK^L ADVISER I" LJ makes nil fri/^ n WEAK WOMEN STRONG^ J-/I} W|JU andSICK WOMEN WELL. LJ w w Is not the relative physical suffering of woman an injustice? From fifteen to forty-five — that is from the dawn of womanhood until the change of life — the average woman spends just one-third of that thirty years in suffering more or less great. Ten years taken out of her life. Ten years taken out of the powers, the pleasures, the possibilities of life, and ten years of care and pain added to the nor mal burdens of life that fall alike on man and woman. IS IT FAIR? How many a woman, aching and miserable, moaning in the loneliness of her darkened chamber has asked that question : "Is it fair f " But there is a more important question to be asked before that question which arraigns impartial Nature at the bar of reason, and that great question Is : IS SUCH SUFFERING NECESSARY? If it can be proved beyond a doubt that women who have suffered in this way have been cured, made sound and whole, their pains banished never to return, then it is proved that such suffering is not necessary for some women. And if again it can be proved that ninety-eight women out of every hun dred without regard to age or the gravity of their disease, have been cured by Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription, of irregularities, inflammations, ulcer ations, female weakness, and debilitating drains, then it is also proven that such suffering is unneces sary to most women. These facts have been proved and are being proved every day in the practice of Dr. Pierce and his staff of nearly a score of assist ant physicians. Such letters as the following are features of the daily mails of the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. V., where Dr. R. V. Pierce presides as chief consulting physician. "I wrote you for advice February 4th, 1896," writes Mr* Lonia Halstead, of Claremore, Cherokee Nat, Ind. Ty. "I was racking with pain from the back of my head down to my heels. Had hemorrhage for weeks at a time, and was unable to sit up for ten minutes at a time. You answered my letter, advised me to use your valuable medicines, viz., Dr. Pierce' 9 Favorite Prescription, 'Golden Medical Discovery,' and 'Pleasant Pel lets,' also gave advice about injections, baths and diet. To my surprise, in four months from the time I began yonr treatment I was a well woman and have not had the backache since, and now I put in sixteen hours a day at hard work." It is to be noted that Mrs. Halstead's cure began with a letter written to Dr. Pierce for advice. In tens of thousands of similar cases the cures BEGIN WITH A LETTER seeking advice, which is given absolutely without fee or condition. Free medical advice, is what Dr. Pierce offers every sick and ailing woman. Any one can make that offer. Only a physician can make it honestly and carry out its promise. The very trusting nature of woman makes her a mark for the schemes of the man who invites the corres pondence of women, disguising himself as a woman, to win woman's confidence. Does any accredited doctor need to put on a woman's clothes to win a woman's confidence ? The very fact that such dis guise is used, and women are invited by a man to "write to a woman," shows that the one offering advice is not a qualified physician, and assumes a woman's dress to cover up the fact.

NEW YORK, April 7.— Although Dor othea ESgarita Crouse is only eleven years old, Surrogate Arnold has decided that he is justified in increasing her al lowance for her maintenance and sup port from $7,500 to $12,000 a year on ac count of her poor physical condition. She has an estate to her credit of $809,500 with the New York Security and Trust company. Her Income is $31,420 annual ly. The child, who is now living abroad with her mother, Countess Kula Hen rietta Rotulicka, receives her fortune from the estate of E'aniel Edgar Crouse, of Syracuse, N. V., who died Nov. 21, I&U2, leaving several millions, after a contest over his willand through a set tlement with his heirs. Countess Rotulicka, in asking for the increase granted, declared that Dorothea was very delicate, and had a tendency to lateral curviture of the spine, and that she was under the treatment of eminent physicians in Europe, who looked upon her case as a very im portant one; which demanded the most careful treatment, under the most favor able conditions possible. . , FELL FROM A WINDOW.

GENUINE MEDICAL ADVICE cannot be given by a man or woman who is not a physician. Remember too that there are grades in medical experience and skill, and that Dr. Pierce with his staff of nearly a score of trained special ists, his more than thirty years' experience, and his record of over half-a-million women treated, with ninety-eight in every hundred cured, offers you free, more skilful service than money can buy outside the great cities, where such skill can be bought, but only by the wealthy. The proof of Dr. Pierces special skill lies in the fact that a large part of his cures have been performed in cases where the local physicians had utterly failed to give help. "I write you to let you know the great benefit I have received from your medicines, and by following your advice regarding self-treatment at home," writes Mrs. Selma Erickson of 406 Rice Street, St. Paul, Minn. " When I first wrote you I had been to three different doctors and two of them said I would never get better without going to the hospital for an operation. I just aat down and cried and said, ' If I have to die, I will die at home with my two dear little ones.' I had a miscarriage in May last and was weak all summer. Was not able to do any- * thing. If I would get up and walk to the kitchen and back I would have to lie in bed for a day or sometimes two days. I^ast August I picked up one of Dr. Pierce s pamphlet 9 and read ol his wonderful work. I wrote to him for information and re ceived an answer within five days from the day I wrote, advis ing me \o try his medicines. Now I have used six bottles of his Favorite Prescription ' and six of the ' Golden Medical Discov ery,' and the result Is just wonderful. I did not tell the doctors what I was taking. I have not been to any physician sine* the day I received the first letter from Dr. Pierce, and I feel as good as I ever did before I had the miscarriage. I was 90 nervous I had to have some one by my side all the time even in day time, and I could hardly -eat anything. I took treatment from a doc tor twice a week, and every time I would go there I felt so sick, but since I quit all the doctors and began taking your medicines I gained right along. I have gained 40 pounds within the last four months. I weighed 125 whea I began taking your medi cines (in August) and now I am up to my usual weight, 165. I cannot thank you enough for your wonderful medicines, and I wish you every success in the treatment of other cases as you have had in mine. lam as well and feel as good as ever.
