Easter, her aunt, and Mr. Fletcher's moiher-in-law. Mrs. Easter made her home with Mr. Fletcher from June 15, 1887, to April 28, 1897, when she died. In her will executed Jan. 29, 1892, she made the congressman her executor without bonds and willed to him her entire es tate with the exception of bequests amounting to $2,500. The bequest to the petitioner was $500. The petition asserts that Mr. Fletch er presented a claim of his own which more than consumed the entire estate. His claim was for $17,512.04, and as a result there was a balance due from the estate to him of $1,089.72. His claim included medical attendance, nursing and board for nearly ten years, amounting to $11,850-. According to the petition the con gressman-elect charged the estate with £100 a month for board and room, when half that sum would have been suffi cient to cover all expenses. The estate is said to have been val ued at $16,000 and the allowance of a claim, in excess of its value was suffi cient to cut off all bequests. The peti tioner asserts that it was improper to permit Mr. Fletcher to act as creditor and administrator and that he never filed an inventory as required by law. It is also alleged there was no notifi cation of the probation of the will, ex cept by publication in a Minneapolis weekly newspaper.. although Mr. Fletcher was aware of the whereabouts of the petitioner and that on Dec. 28, 1902, he answered a letter of inquiry in which he is said to have denied knowl edge of any will or bequests. Letters written after that time were not an swered, according to the statement made in court. Mr. Fletcher is out of the city.

DOUGLAS' SUCCESS DUE TOttYBTBIN Massachusetts Man Tells of the Methods of the New Governor "There is no method of advertising In the world to compare with ample space in a daily newspaper, and the re cent elevation of W. L. Douglas, of Massachusetts, to the governorship of the state is a shining example of the truth of this statement," said H. L. Parmenter, of Athol, Mass., at the Mer chants hotel last night. "Mr. Douglas is one of the greatest advertisers in the world, and his wonderful success is due as much to the uses of the advertising columns of newspapers as to any other factor. "Mr. Douglas started not many years ago with a small shoe shop, making a few pair of shoes a day, and im mediately started to advertise. Inside of a year he was making two cases of shoes each day, and still used the pa pers. Then he cut down his living ex penses, and for the next four years spent every dollar of his profits in newspaper advertising. "His factory increased in size every year. Pictures of Mr. Douglas appeared in the papers, at so much per inch. Gradually his name began to be asso ciated with shoes and newspaper ad vertising, and month after month the factory grew larger and he was men tioned as a candidate for mayor in his native city, Brockton. Campaign for Mayor "Then Jie showed that he still be lieved In newspaper advertising. He wanted to be mayor of Brockton, and every day purchased columns in the dailies, and had his advertising man ager write long stories regarding his fitness for the office. His picture ap peared In the papers still in conjunction with the shoe business, but also in the Brockton papers as a candidate for mayor. "He was elected by a great majority of the votes cast. His administration was highly successful, and he retired from the position with, an untarnished name. He was still looking higher, and last spring entered the lists for the Democratic nomination for governor. "Before the primaries, his picture filled the papers all over the state. The good effects were shown in his nomina tion, thousands of men favoring him, although they had never met him per sonally. He was put up against the Republican nominee, Gov. John L. Bates, and also was working against the fact that it was presidential year, and Massachusetts Is a strong Repub lican state. "In the campaign for governor, his newspaper advertising was used stronger than ever before. He bought whole pages and everywhere pro claimed the fact that W. L. Douglas was a candidate for governor. "The result is now history. He was elected over Bates by 26,000 votes, and this in the face of a 60.000 plurality for Roosevelt. Some people are now men tioning him as a candidate for the presidency, and you can make up your mind that if he ever runs for that of fice the newspapers will receive the greatest orders for Douglas advertising that has ever been sent to them. For he will use them as advertising mediums in Just the same manner that he has used them to bring his shoe before the public, elect himself mayor of Brockton, capture the Democratic nomination for governor, and later run ahead of his party's national candidate by a clean 85,000 votes."

SUNDAY. NOVEMBER 13. 1904 DLL KEEP WATCH ON THE RETURNS No Pre-Arranged Figures Will Be Accepted by the Democrats The two Republican papers of Min neapolis were thrown into a panic last night and printed lurid stories to the effect that special policemen had been engaged to watch the office of the city clerk for the purpose of preventing any tampering with the returns. The fact of the matter is that a po liceman has been detailed to watch on the second floor of the city hall for the purpose of giving alarm In the event of fire In order that the proper officers may be notified In time to remove the returns before they are consumed. City Clerk Lydiard has had a man at work tabulating the returns from the preliminary sheets and he asserts they are accurate and there will be little for the council committee to do other than to O X the figures which he has pre pared. There Is a probability that the tabu lation of the city clerk will be passed to one side and the committee ap pointed to canvass the returns will be compelled to perform the duty for which it was appointed—canvass the returns as they are taken from the en velopes. There has been so much volunteer service on the part of the Republicans that the Democrats are becoming sus picious and they will Insist that the vote be tabulated from the returns as they ait opened and reed and not from any pre-arranged sheets which may have been prepared by any Republican official. The city canvassing board meets to morrow and there is every prospect that each return will be scrutinized carefully before the figures are placed on the tally sheets. Although the adherents of the Re publican candidates clahn a victory, the Democrats are not satisfied with the preliminary returns, for they are of the opinion that the same errors win be found in Minneapolis as was discov ered in the preliminary returns in St. Paul. wheat movement worries Railroads They Have More Offerings Than They Can Take Care Of The railroads report that more wheat is offered them than the lines can transport and many tralnloads are be ing h«ld on the tracks awaiting an op portunity to reach the Bidlngs.

H. Jones and Peter Lee were ar rested yesterday on complaint of C. J. Rockwood, attorney for the Minneap olis park board, on the charge of de facing trees. The men claim they were granted permission to trim trees by W. M. Ber ry, superintendent of the parks, but there are several members of the park board who assert Qiat the right to grant permits is vested in the board Itself and not the superintendent. The- issue in the case is to determine whether a written permit Issued by the superintendent Is legal. On a former occasion Jones was con victed for defacing trees along park ways. He claimed verbal permission from the superintendent, but was con victed an<J the supreme court sustain ed the lower court and the fine was paid. Jones and Lee will be tried.Thurs day.

THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL Few People Know How Useful It It In Pi e—rvlno Health and Beauty Nearly everybody knows that charcoal is the safest and most efficient disin fectant and purifier tn nature, but few realise it? value when taken into the human system for the same cleansing Charcoal Is a remedy that the more you take of it the better; It is not a drug at all. but simply absorbs the gases and Impurities always present in the stomach and Intestines and carries them out of the system. Charcoal sweetens, the breath after smoking, drinking or after eating onions and other odorous vegetables. Charcoal effectually dears and Im proves the complexion, it whitens the teeth and further acts as a natural and eminently safe cathartic. U absorbs the injurious gases which collect in the stomach and bowels; It dis infects the mouth and throat from the poison of catarrh. All druggists sell charcoal in one form or another, but probably the best char coal and the most for the money Is in Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges; they are composed of the finest powdered Willow charcoal, and other harmless antiseptics in tablet form or rather in the form of large, pleasant tasting loxenges, the char coal being mixed with honey. The daily use of these lozenges will soon tell in a much improved condition of the general health, better complexion, sweeter breath and purer blood, and the beauty of It is, that no possible harm can result from their continued use. but on the contrary, great benefit. A Buffalo physician in speaking of the benefits of charcoal, says: "I advise Stu art's Charcoal Losenges to all patients suffering from gas in stomach and bowels, and to clear the complexion and purify the breath, mouth and throat: I also be lieve the liver is greatly benefited by the daily use of them, they cost but twenty five cents a box at drug stores, and al though in some sense a patent prepara tion, yet I believe I get more and better charcoal in Stoarfs Charcoal Loxenges than ia any of the ordinary charcoal tab leu." • I A ELECTRICITY RUNS km FROM STEAM New Type of Locomotive Makes Seventy-five Miles an Hour SCHENECTADT, N.Y.. Nov. 12.—The official tests of the big electric loco motive built for the New York Central by the General Electric company took place today on the stretch of four miles of specially prepared track between this city and Hoffmans. This locomotive is the first built of forty ordered by the New York Central for its New York terminal. It has had several preliminary trials, but today the official tests for speed, drawing ca pacity and acceleration were conducted by the officials of the railroad in con- Junction with those of the General Electric and American Locomotive companies. Prominent electrical engi neers and railroad men from all over the> country were present. The elec tric locomotive was attached to a train consisting of nine heavy Pullman coaches and the party whirled to the end of the line at a speed of seventy five miles an hour. The entire morning was spent running with from three to nine cars. Seventy-five miles an hour was the maximum speed attained. There Is little doubt In the minds of the officials who witnessed the test that a speed of over ninety miles an hour can be made. An excellent feature of the tests was the race with fast mail No. 3, one of the Central's flyers. When No. 3 was signalled about half a mile away the current was turned on and by the time the steam and electric rivals were oft even terms, the electric was running at a speed of fifty miles an hour. It easily drew away from the steam train and for nearly two miles held the lead. HARTFORD RAILROAD RE-ELECTS OFFICERS Charles S.

Wmwsm CAPITOL PAINTING STIRS ALL GOTHAM La Farge Canvas for New Slate House Praised by Critic The artistic value of the paintings that will adorn the marble capitol 'of Minnesota is well set forth in the de scription Riven by a New York critic of a canvas recently completed by John La Farge and exhibited in the Vander bilt Gallery of the Fine Artß build ing. The painting is the principal work of four that Mr. La Farge will execute in the decoration of the su preme court room. They will occupy four lunettes, on the sides of the chamber. A lunette, It may be worth while to tell, is a half-moon space, with the curved side uppermost. The completed painting, exhibited privately at the Vanderbilt gallery, will be seen In the lunette directly behind the su preme bench. "Mr. La Farge's subjects," writes the Gotham observer in the Mail and Ex press, "naturally concern the law. The painted lunette on exhibition is enti tled "The Moral and Divine Law." and shows Moses receiving the command ments on Mount Sinai. He kneels with bowed head on the shoulder of a great mountain, in the midst of fire and smoke. Joshua, standing at respectful distance, warns back the unseen crowd of Israelites; Aaron kneels, with face covered. "It is a scene of cosmic grandeur that Mr. La Farge has imagined, with great purple and orange clouds ranging about the rugged summit. Far below, to the left, a stream winds its way; on the near slope verdure fights for existence on the rock surface. The sky is full of motion, with swirling vapors gloriously luminous. In this aerial tumult of movement and color the robe of Moses shows as a glowlne pink: but the stern green and scarlef and blue of Joshua's costume in the foreground are not within pale of the miracle, nor has Aaron's robe aught but its own mauve and purple hues. Chaos Made Orderly "Over the turbulent natural ele ments shine the dominating personali ties of Moses, his gray face half hid den; and of Joshua, bold and instinct with the aspect of leadership. If the reader can conceive of a chaos made orderly without losing its sweep and fury, he will get an impression similar to that produced by Mr. La Farge's Mount Slnal. "The balance of color and of mass, of light and shade, is kept by devices that secure unity and simplicity. The whole design pivots on that kneeling figure strangely powerful yet crushed under the impact of the divine mes sage. "As a matter of fact, the design It -»elf was done backward. Mr. La Farge worked out in miniature a dia gram of the lines of composition he wanted, and then fitted the scene al most" literally to them. He was aided, on the realistic side, by his personal observation of a volcano in Hawaii and by photographs of the Mont Pelee eruptions. "This large canvas was painted, ac cording to Mr. La Farge's Latin in scription, by his own hand, and in twenty-nine days, in this the sixty ninth year of his age. It is masterly in the dash and freedom of the brush work. The luminosity is attained not by overloading with paint, but by the use of pure colors lightly dragged over the fresh, appetizing surface." A cartoon or charcoal sketch for a second lunette was also exhibited by Mr. La Farge. "This cartoon." the critic continues, "shows Confucius, the Chinese sage, with his pupils In a grove by the side of a cascade and a pool. They are collating and transcribing documents. The five large figures are disposed on a rug in a grouping singularly skill ful. The types were carefully selected by Mr. La Farge from among Chinese actors here in New York; the land scape is modeled on a Chinese garden in Japan, sketched years ago by the painter.
