Celery Compound
Makes Permanent Cures in
Chronic and Complicated
Cases of Rheumatism.
It Gives New Life to Helpless
and Crippled Men and
Professor Edward E. Phelps, M. D.,
TjLi. D., has given to his profession a
positive and permanent cure for all
forms of rheumatism, from which so
many suffer in the autumn season. To
the rheumatic, this truth should prove
encouraging and comforting. Men and
women suffering intense agonies from
a disease that frequently stiffens the
•joints, cripples the limbs and renders
its victims quite helpless, can be re
stored to activity, vigor and health, if
Paine's Celery Compound be used for a
few weeks. There is every reason why
sufferers should pin their faith to this
best of medicines. Your friends and
neighbors have used it with success;
the honest physician is prescribing it
every day in cases where all other
means have failed, and they are de
lighted with the happy results. Why
hesitate, or doubt the powers, virtues
and efficacy of the medicine that is
curing thousands today? It is your
only hope; your safety and life depend
upon its use. Lizzie Pierce, Folger,
Term., once helpless and in. a critical
condition from rheumatism, writes
"I had rheumatism so bad that I could
not walk, and could not bear to have my
legs moved: I often thought the disease
would kill me. I commenced taking
Paine's Celery Compound; I used two
bottles and have not had the slightest
symptom of rheumatism since. I wish
I could tell the whole world the good
your medicine has done me. My moth
er, who had rheumatism for years, was
cured by Paine's Celery Compound aft
er using a few bottles. She can run
now like a child, and says she feels ten
years younger. I could tell you of a
dozen or more people who were cured
by Paine's Celery Compound."

Erroneous Announcement That It Be

Executive Agent Sam Fullerton was

and that a large number of hunters had
already left for the woods in the north

Mr. Fullerton feared the announce

the slaughter of both deers and hunt

that the statement as to the opening of
the season be corrected. . \

Mr. Tarbox Is Contradicted by John F.
Hilscher, of the Creditors' Commit
tee, Who Declares That Jordan's
Price Was Not Fixed Before the
Creditors Met.
Charles H. Scliliek, one of the part
ners in the bankrupt firm of Tarbox.
Schliek & Co., gave "his version of the
incidents attending the transfer of the
assets of his firm to the Jordans in
consideration of their payment of
$124,000 to the firm's creditors in the
hearing- of the Sharood-Jordan case
Asked as to the May invoice made by
Clark and Jordan, used as a basis- of
the negotiations with the creditors, Mr.
Schliek said:
"I grave them all the help I could in
making it. I furnished them with the
cost of the articles, and "told them at
what they had been invoiced in the last
inventory. Yes, I guess the values were
made as low as they, possibly could be
made. A great many items were put in
below cost. In some cases this was
justifiable, in many others it was not.
I could not tell, however, how much the
undervaluation amounted to."
The "witness was closely cross-ex
amined by Attorney Severance, for tha
Jordans, as to his connection with the
Union Shoe company. He said his in
terest in that company rested wholly
on an oral agreement with Mr. Tar
box, but he had never drawn a dollar
of profit from the company.
"I understood that I was to have a
half interest in the profits of the com
pany," said Mr. Schliek, "till in tha
third year I was told by Mr. Tarbox
that it was only 40 per cent. Someone
else had an interest in the stock."
Merriam Was a Partner.
"Who was that?"
"W. P. Merriam."
"Did your interest diminish after
"Yes, the next year Mr. Tarbox told
me my share of the profits was only
25 per cent."
"Well, who had slipped in in the
meantime to absorb the other 15 per
"No one that I ever heard of."
Seeking disproof of the plaintiff's
contention that the Jordans contract
ed to make Tarbox a member of their
firm, Mr. Severance led the witness
back to the first meeting at the Union
bank, where he was present with his
partner to discuss with Maurice Auer
bach and W. B. Jordan the possibility
of a reorganization of the business.
This was early "in May, 1900.
"It was understood that Jordan
would put up some money. This, of
course, would go to the creditors. I
made the remark that if we got
through that way, and the creditors
were satisfied, Mr. Jordan, Mr. Tar
b6x and I should divide the rest of the
"But you knew that your liabilities
exceeded your assets. How could there
have been anything to divide?" Mr.
Severance urged.
Never Give Up Everything.
"Well, you know that in these set
tlements with creditors it is not the
rule to give up everything to them."
"Oh that is the rule, is it? I didn't
know it. But how could there be a
surplus till the creditors were satis
fied, and till they had released you?
You did not mean to steal the surplus
from your creditors, did you?"
"Better use some other word," Judge
Kelly interjected.
"What shall I say, then? Swipe?
Well, Mr. Schliek, you could not keep
something to yourselves and at the
same time obtain a release from your
creditors without committing faud on
them, could you?"
"No, sir."
"Then your proposition contemplat
ed that, with the money Jordan was
to put up, you would be able to settle
with your creditors and obtain a re
lease from them, before the old mem
bers of the firm could go on in thd
"Yes, sir."
John F. Hilscher, a St. Paul attor
ney, who was a member of the credi
tors' committee that had conducted
the sale of the assets of Tarbox,
Schliek & Co. to the Jordans, was
called as a witness for the plaintiff.
He testified that the creditors had not
been informed of the $2,000 paid to
Schliek to agree to the bill of sale, nor
had he any knowledge of the negotia
tions between Tarbox and Jordan by
which the former claims he was guar
anteed an interest in the new business
Could Not Reconcile Statements.
This testimony is relied upon by the
plaintiff's attorneys to confirm
claim that the $124,000 sale was a
fraud on the creditors, and to support
their demand that the court order an
accounting of the Jordans' profits by
tHeir purchase of the bankrupt stock.
On cross-examination, Mr. Hilscher
declared that he had been utterly un
able to reconcile the statements made
by Tarbox, Schliek & Co. to their cred
itors and the commercial agencies
shortly before their failure with the
conditions he found existing when the
creditors' committee took charge of the
firm's assets. He deemed the May in
voice, on which the creditors had sold
the assets to the Jordans, a fair ap
The Jordans had first proposed, said
the witness, to take an assignment of
all claims against the firm, but as this
involved a release from the creditors,
the proposition had been rejected.
Then the committee had asked Mr.
Jordan to buy the assets. Sometime
had been spent in dickering as to the,
price before $124,000 was finally agreed
on. This was a direct contradition of
Mr. Tarbox's testimony that Jordan
had fixed the price he would pay be
fore the meeting of the creditors, on
May 29.

This is the predicament in which the
park board finds itself, and it is at a
loss how to proceed.
Supt. Nussbaumer last night submitted
his statement of moneys necessary for
the maintenance of St. Paul's park sys
tem next year. For the maintenance and
improvement of Phalen park the super
intendent proposed an appropriation of
$20,000; for Indian Mounds park, $5,000;
Mississippi river boulevard, $5,000; Lex
ington parkway, $5,000; Como park, $3,000,
and general maintenance, $36,000.
"Why, we need more than $5,000 for
the Mississippi river boulevard," inter
rupted President Wheelock. "We have
simply got to have more. We can't get
the land if we don't."
"Well, it takes money to buy tobacco,"
significantly remarked Commissioner
Aberle, as he lighted a cigar. All that is
coming to the board is $72,000, and the
superintendent has exceeded the amount
about $6,000. It's a case of cut accord
ing to, your cloth."
This wa3 the way the other commission
ers viewed it, and the estimate was laid
on the table for later consideration. The
board this time is in very straitened
circumstances, and unless some legisla
tive relief is given, announces that it
will have to pass up further needed im
provements and confine itself strictly to
Delegates From Commercial Bodies of
Various Cities to Convene in
Quincy, 111., Next Week.
The Chamber of Commerce yester
day received a communication from L.
B. Bowell, chairman of the joint com

tice of a convention of delegates from
cities and towns along- the Mississippi
river, from St. Louis to St. Paul, to be
held in the city of Quincy Nov. 12 and
13. St. Paul is invited to send three
The purpose of the convention is to
make a united effort to encourage the
national government to protect and
preserve the upper Mississippi river for
the benefit of commerce. The conven

of commerce on the upper Mississippi.
Park Commissioners Plan to Increase the
Area of the New Pleasure Ground
to 250 Acres. . •
If the hopes of the park board are re
alized, the land area of Phalen park will
be considerably enlarged during the next
week. Preparatory to bringing condem
nation proceedings, the board last night
ordered plats of a forty-acre strip ad
joining the lake shore on the west .side.
The ground, the board has figured, will
cost the city about $6,000, and will, when
acquired, bring the total land area up
to about 250 acres. This is to be in
creased later by another forty-acre strip
adjoining the one condemned last night-
Portions of the lake shore still remain in
the hands of private owners, but much
of it will be donated in return for Im
provements to be made to the surround
ing property.
Next spring the street car company will
begin staking out the ground for ita ter
minals, preparatory to extending the La
fayette car line, and then Phalen park
will be a, reality. It is expected that work
on the new pavilion will be commenced
at that time, also.
Rev. William C. Pope, the Pastor, Is
Re-elected President —Reports of
Officers Encouraging.
The annual meeting of the parish guild
of the House of Hope church was held
last evening in the chapel of the church.
Preceding the meeting a number of the
communicants of the parish had tea in
the parsonage, as the guests of the .pas
tor, Rev. William C. Pope, and Mrs.
Pope. The evening services were then
held in the church, after which the busi
ness session was held in the chapel.
The pastor delivered an address, in
whicn he pointed out the needs of the
various departments of the church work,
and dwelt upon the satisfactory results
of the year's work. Officers for the year
were re-elected. Rev. Pope remains pres
ident ex offieio; George Bell was elected
vice president; Edward Sturley, secretary;
Mrs. E. H. Hall, librarian. Reports from
the altar guild, the Sunday school and
the treasurer showed that these depart
ments were in fine condition.

surprised at the number of people in

says. Reiteration of such statements,
local indorsement about the claims
made for Doan's Kidney Pills cannot be
gainsaid or disproven. Read this case:
Mrs. Mary Horst, of 61 East Twelfth
street, says: "'I had much trouble from'
a deranged condition of my kidneys for
a considerable length of time. The
high- indorsement of Doan's Kidney
Pills led a grandson of mine to get a
box and bring it to me. I soon felt im
proved, and a continuation of the treat
ment ended the gains in my back. Some
months later I had a recurrence, due to
a cold, but in a milder form. I again
resorted to Doan's Kidney Pills, gotten
at P. M. Parker's drug store. My con
fidence in them was not misplaced."

J ONES DOWN -, 7' >
Live Wires, Even Though in the Un
derground District, Must Be Let
Alone—Manager Rudd, of Western
Union, and •D. R. Noyes Protest
Against the Council Interfering.
"I agree with you gentlemen that all
dead and high voltage wires now in
the underground district shall , come
down, but you must not interfere with
our business. We will not permit it
We will not let you."
With this parting injunction from
D. R. Noyes, the committee on streets
of the assembly yesterday a/ternoon
did a quick transformation act, in re
pudiating 1 any intention on its part of
compelling any removal of the net
work of telegraph, telephone and light
wires "that now cover what is known
as the underground district. The or
dinance emanating from its hands, di
recting the removal was quickly killed
and ordering the dead wires down only
substituted in its stead.
Manager Rudd, of the St. Paul
branch of the Western Union Tele
graph company, started the stampede,
when he informed the members that
if his company's wires had to go un
derground then all its side lines in
the shape of messenger calls, watch
service, electric clocks and substations
would have to be abandoned.
Would Demoralize Business.
"Why it would demoralize every
business Rouse served by our com
pany," said Mr. Rudd. "Our profits for
the next ten years wouldn't begin to
pay the cost of the conduits that would
be required.* .
Any reluctance on the part of the
members to agree with Mr. Rudd was
quickly removed when D. R. Noyes,
representing the Jobbers' union, se
cured the floor. The wires were not a
menace to, life, and property, he con
tended, and they must not be interfered
with. He thought the dead wires should
come down and possibly those carrying
a heavy voltage.
"The business of the jobbers and
merchants o-f St. Paul must not be in
terfered with," said Mr. Noyes, "and I
hope you will use judgment in handling
this matter."
"They tell me the gas company is be
hind the whole thing," spoke up As
semblyman Schurmeier. "They want
to cut out those who are doing a light
and power business on the side."
Only Dead Wires to Go.
The rejection of the ordinance at
this juncture necessitated the creation
of another that would handle the situ
ation, and for the next half hour the
chair was smothered in motions and
suggestions, but the only one that
would in any way receive, support was
one the removal of the dead
wires only.. Assemblyman Arnold want
ed the future stringing of wires done
only und,er the authority of the council,
and in t,his he was indorsed by City
Engineer.' Rumnett, but the others
seemed afraid to touch it, and the mat
ter was .dropped by simply instructing
the city engineer to take clown the dead
As the situation now stands, no one
is held responsible for existing wires
or their future stringing. City Engineer
Rundlett last evening announced that
he would issue no permits for wires in
the underground district until such
authority is delegated to him. He is
with the members of the committee, of
the opinion that the wires of the West
ern Union or any competing company,
when carrying a light voltage, should
not be disturbed, but he thinks there
should be some regulation whereby the
ownership of the different wires could
be ascertained and the promiscuous
stringing of the same curtailed.
For the purpose of permitting the
paving of University avenue, the wires
on that thoroughfare were ordered un

Assembly Committee Hears Arguments
for and Against Proposed
She wore widows weeds, spoke tear
"fully and her plaint was the threaten
ed extension of the Third street bridge,
and the practical confiscation of her
little property on the flats below.
"Will none of ye speak for a poor
widow woman?" she half sobbed before
the assembly committee on streets yes
terday afternoon.
"Why, it's the best thing in the world
for your property," answered a mem
ber cheerfully.
Her answer was lost in a flood of
tears, and for the next half hour the
committee was treated to some loud
bewailing 1 on one side and the impor
tuning of a delegation of Second ward
citizens who asked for haste in the
consideration of plans for the exten
sion of the Third street bridge.
As the situation stands the city en
gineer simply wants to replace the
present wooden portion of the bridge
to Commercial street with an iron af
fair. Some of the residents demr»-^l
that it shall go to Hoffmann avenue,
one block further, and still others in
sist that Maria avenue be the termi
As each block of>«tension only adds
to the cost, the committee was some
what at sea how to proceed, but finally
settled the matter by Instructing the
engineer to ascertain the full cost of
each plan, and aleo S£e if sufficient
property could be found to bear. the
cost that will necessarily accrue as the
result of damages.
If the bridge is raised to any unusual
elevation, much property will be left
•without an; exit, and the owners are
making every effort to have the project
killed. City Engineer Rundlett says the
present wooden structure, which ter
minates at Commercial street, is un-
safe, and if it is not replaced he will,
have to close, the bridge. He is not
in sympathy with the extension of the
bridge to Maria avenue, as the cost
would be too'great.

Judge Hine Deals Leniently With a
Violator of the Smoke
Until anthracite coal is again placed
on sale in St. Paul, ho attempt will be
made to rigidly enforce the smoke or
dinance. This was decided yesterday
by Judge Hine, who handed down his
decision in the P. S. Larson case.
Larson was arrested Oct. 14 for vio
lation of the ordinance. He pleaded
not guilty, but the evidence was such
tjiat it showed conclusively that on
the date of the offense great clouds of
smoke issued from the chimney of the
Crescent Creamery company, at Third
and Minnesota streets, where the de
fendant is employed as an engineer.
Larson contended that he was un
able to procure coal that can be con
sumed without creating smoke. Judge
Kine said in his decision:
"I take judicial notice of the fact
that owing to the extent and long dur
ation of the strike in the coal region,
the market is so insufficiently sup
plied that it is impossible at the pres
ent time for purchasers to procure
coal of a quality and character that
will consume without the emission of
offensive smoke."
Larson's case was continued until
Wednesday at 9 o'clock. _
Memorial to the "Apostle to the In

The Bishop Whipple memorial tower

Our Merciful Savior, of which edifice
the tower is a part. A large^number of
Episcopalians from St. Paul and Min
neapolis will be present to take part in
the ceremony. Bishop Edsall will de
liver the address.
The tower was commenced two years
ago, before Bishop Whipple's death.
When the bishop died, it was decided
to make the tower a memorial of his
life, and it has therefore been inscribed
"Bishop Whipple's, Memorial Tower."
It is a monument to the great work of
the "Apostle to the Indians," Minneso
ta's pioneer Episcopalian bishop, and
one of her most famous citizens.

Street Car Company Cannot Be Com

Rice street residents who have been
agitating a five-block extension of the

Maryland street north will have to go
without the improvement, for the pres
ent at least,.or until the sewerage sys
tem on the street has been extended.
The extension was originally pro,
posed by Aid- Bantz, who secured the
passage of an order by the board of al
dermen. When it reached the assem~
bly that body found the project im
practicable, as the section over which
the extension would pass was not pro
vided with a sewer. The committee

Youth in LoveJy Garb Makes a
Hit With Mother's Darling, and
Forthwith Goes Broke —His Girl
Thinks He Is a Deceiver and Throws
Him Over.
Here is one on a well known St. Paul
clothes horse. Although a person of
distinguished antecedents and connec
tions he has degenerated into a mati
nee frequenter, perhaps for the reason
that the night air has a bad effect on
fawn-colored overcoats, complexion
and things.
He attended the Saturday matinee
given by Kellar last week at the Grand,
accompanied by a friend as properly
and immaculately attired as himself.
Mr. Charley paid for the pit tickets
with a flourish which might indicate
that he was as usual plentifully sup
plied with the stuff that makes the
world go round. But he wasn't. For
once in his life Charles was painfully
short. This only by way of preliminary.
In the next seat to Fashion Plate No.
1 sat a demure little woman, holding a
restless boy of about five years. Along
toward the middle of the first act the
child had made himself so obstreper
ous that those about were plainly an
noyed, and the mother was obviously
tired and mortified. Gallant Charlie
here came to the rescue and politely
offered to take the boy on his knee.
The transfer was made, with some
embarrassment on the part of the
young man, and profuse expressions of
thanks and relief from the mother.
Then the tragedy began. Charley's hair
was mussed in the first two minutes of
play. In the second round his cravat
was jerked around under his ear, and
his collar was in momentary danger of
being unbuttoned. Two buttons were
kicked from his vest and his cuffs ex
tended out of his sleeves. But Charley
doggedly stuck to his sejf-imposed task
and declared he would finish the Sir
Walter Raleigh stunt if he was carried
out of the theater dead and disgraced.
Loses a Drink, I 00.
He even suffered to see his com
panion g-o out and get a drink without
a whimper, but with much inward agi
tation, for he had never sat through an
intermission in his life without re
But the worst was not over. The
bon-bon boy floated down the aisle,
loudly calling his wares. He paused be
fore Charley and the child and repeat
ed his song three times: "Ten, twenty
five and fifty."
"Can't I have some candy," pleaded
the child, clasping the young man
about the neck and endeavoring to
climb over his clavicle.
"Well —now, there —well, yes, if your
mother will let you," stammered
Charley, wondering whether he still
had the wherewithal to grant the
child's wish.
"Now, Wllie, you don't want any
candy. Be still now," admonished the
agitated mother, who was plainly em
barrassed at the situation her offspring
had gotten her into.
"But I want some candy, please, I
want some candy."
Now the bon-bon boy at the Grand
is anything but slow to take a cue and
he grabbed this one like a trout gob
bling a fly.
"Here you are, sir—candy for the lit
tle boy—so cents," and he placed in
the child's hand the most expensive
box in the basket. And what could the
poor man do? He flushed and then he
fished into his pockets to examine the
condition of the exchequer. By this
time the child had broken the string on
the candy box. At last his fingers
clutched a half dollar, the only coin
in his clothes. Eagerly he pushed it to
ward the bon-bon boy. The boy bit it
and handed it back.
'It's a bum one, mister," said he.
Worst Was to Come.
• The orchestra was . playing. The
lights were going down. The boy was
waiting impatiently, as he saw possible
further business up the aisle.
The child was devouring the candy.
The motlier was on the verge of faint
ing, and: there is nothing in the . lan
guage '; to 1 describe • the feelings - of
Charles, the j volunteer nurse. Surely
■ someone -; would ] have ;. died ; on ' the spot
had not the young man's friend re
sumed his -seat 'at- that moment.
"For the " love of '. heaven • give him a
.half dollar," weakly moaned Charley.
The I half was forthcoming, but Charley
was quite sure ; that during r 'the rest of
the show everyone -~ in the-' audience
ceased .to give attention to Kellar and
glued his 'eyes on him. '.'-..

it will not be in place tonight.
Eastern Concern Anxious to Locate in
This City If It Can Buy Skim
Milk Cheap Enough.
Dairy Commissioner McConnell has
received a letter from a company en
gaged in the manufacture of a powder
possibilities of securing a sufficient
from skim milk, inquiring as to the
quantity of the skim milk in any cer
tain locality to warrant the erection of
a factory in this state.
The company states it would use
from 100,000 quarts to double that
quantity of skim-milk daily. It pays
in the East from 12 to 15 cents per
hundred pounds for the milk, but
would expect to get it cheaper here.
Commissioner McConnell replied to
the letter by saying that there was a
good market for skim milk here, and,
owing to the high price of stock food,
the price was about the same as paid
in the East. Besides, the number of
cheese factories in the state is rapidly
increasing, and they use all the skim
