DO NOT DOSE KIDNEYS
WITH ALCOHOL As When Liquid Kidney Rem edies are Taken. Use Kidney-Wort Tablets They Never Fail. Proprietors of liquid kidney remedies know how harmful the least alcohol la to irritated kidneys, and they would gladly do without it, but they can't. The ingre dients or liquid kidney remedies will not keep without alcohol as a preservative. "Kmbalmed army beef" treated with borax and other preservatives, that raised such a storm of indignation, did not poi son the system as alcohol does the kidneys. If everyone taking a liquid kidney remedy knew that he was dosing his kidneys with alcohol, how many would continue to use liquid preparations'.' No one who has had a grammar school education. To obviate this defect of liqnid kidney J remedies a defect that makes them worthless to practitioners and dangerous to the public, Dr. I'ettingill's Kidney-Wort 1 ablets were prelected. .No suspicion of alcohol attaches to the Tablets, as none is required.

We (ironnlr Kumiterat ed Mails Arrive. Kansas City, Mo., June 3. There U decided Improvement hi the situation, nud there Is a general feeling that Kau nas City has seen the worst of the Hood. Unofficial weather gauges In the Union depot showed a fall of about six inches during the night, and the official report is stationary, the water being thirty five feet. The danger of a famine has passed, and the railroads are confident that they will be able to bring in ample supplies from this time on. The stock of meats in the packing houses, most of which can be taken out In boats, proves to be greater than at rind sup posed, and there is no doubt that there Is sufficient meat to sustain the city for a' week, even if nothing Is brought in from outside. Superintendent Goodwin of the wa terworks department announced that he believed the water supply would be in a measure restored by nightfall. He has plueed a pump and boiler in the center of Allen street and is running a supply pipe into a twenty inch mt'.in leading to the Holly street reservoir. This he said he could fill by night, giv ing the city better protection against fire and providing water for sanitary purposes. All the cable car lines have resumed and are running as usual. The power plant of the electric lines is under water, and the roads M ill not bo able to run until the water subsides. The first mails from the west have come in. Nothing has come yet from the flooded district around Topeka and Lawrence, and it is not likely lljat any Mill arrive for several days after the water subsides. About two car loads of second, third and fourth class mail matter have been lost in the freight yards. The water is now about five feet above the bottoms of the mail cars and running strongly. It may be pos sible to dry out mail after its recovery, but at present Superintendent Taft of the railway service classes that mall among the lost articles. Damage Many Million. The financial damage is estimated by prominent business men at anywhere between $10,00J.OMJ and $25,000,000 in this city alone, but there is no method of determining this with any accuracy. One man's guess is as good as anoth er's. The danger now is the crumbling c brick buildings, and this has begun In some quarters where old buildings are standing. Here and there the corner of a brick structure has gone down, but there has been no general collapse as yet of any large building. All through the freight yards numbers of cars are being loosened from their trucks and are floating down stream. When swept along by the current they make a high class battering ram, and the front of any building that receives many shocks from them Is bound to suffer material damage. The gas company announced that it hoped to restore the supply of gas dur ing the day, but It failed to make good Its promise to supply, sufficient gas foi cooking pnrposes. Nine-tenths of the Kansas City households nse gas for cooking, and the result is that the great majority of meals are cold. Elncourawlng Newa From Sinter C ity. News from Kansas City, Kan., is more encouraging. The Leavenworth trolley line has furnished power to the local telephone and street car com panies, and these systems are In opera tion. Truffle continues between Leav enworth and Kansas City, Kan., with a roM-boat transfer nt a point half way. ' The flood sufferers are being fairly well cared for in the schools, churches find halls. Mayor Cnuldoek said that tbe relief .work was well in hand. Two hundred army tents have been sent from Leavenworth. As soon as the weather clears the homeless peo ple will be removed from the churches and schools and placed in the tents. There are 2,300 carcasses and large quantities of cured meat nt the Sehwarzehild & Sulzberger plant which will be taken out If possible and dis tributed among the people, if gasoline can be secured a launch will be sent to the plant. A similar attempt M ill be made at the Fowler plant. Reports of drowning, but always of unknown persons, continue to come in, but they cannot be verified in any case, and this further confirms the be lief that the loss of life has been much exaggerated. The most important means of com munication in the flood district for several days have been the telegraph and long distance telephone, and the telephone and telegraph wires, includ ing the railroad wires, have been taxed to their utmost capacity, owing to the loss of hundreds of wires, cables un-. der the river and main batteries. To Illustrate the difficulty under Which the news report has been se cured from the flood district, the news from Lawrence, Topeka and other Kansas cities has been sent out via Denver and Cheyenne, thence back to the east, and part of the time the only outlet from Lawrence, Kan., was via San Francisco. Kansas City, Mo., has received the news from Kansas City, Kan., directly across the river. It Mill be several days, perhaps, be fore full telegraph and telephone facil ities are. restored. It is announced by the police engaged in relief work in the cast bottoms thai all the people who had been imprisonef'. in houses i that di.-triet. have bee: rescued and that there was no chains of any further loss of life. The story of fifty IJeSglaiw drowneo in the east bottoms was found to bt untrue. One brick house, two stories high has fallen down and about half a doz en frame cottages have been washed from their foundations. With thest except ions all the buildings in the east bottoms are uninjured. The Commercial club has voted to ask for outside aid for the sufferers. On Monday the club voted that no aid from outside would be accepted, but the distress of the people is so great that the community cannot provide for all, ami so the charity of the country is appealed to. This action m'is taken after an ad dress by Governor Bailey, who has just returned to the city from Mound City, where he has been .water bound since last Thursday. The governor pointed out to the club the necessities of the suffering people and the inabil ity of the community to provide prop erly for them and relieve them, and said that Miille he wanted to work In harmony with the townspeople and its charitable organizations lie saw his duty clearly and he would issue a proclamation calling upon the charita ble people of the country to scud aid in the form of money. BETTER AT TOPEKA, All rernon Marooned In Tree Have Ileen ltraonrd, Topeka, Kan., June 3. The, flood sit nation here is materially better. Tin Kansas river fell during the night al the rate of an inch an hour. All those marooned in trees and flooded house! have now been removed to places of safety. At the Sardou bridge alone over 200 were landed last night. The previous estimate of twenty dead is still adhered to. Many report ed missing are showing up, but it will only be possible to give-the actual. loss of life when the waters have finally re ceded. It is believed that several per sons M'ere drowned and that theii bodies ha-e floated away. The greatest fear now in Topeka Is an epidemic of diseases. At relief de pots where refugees -are huddled tv gether several persons suffering with contagious diseases were removed to the hospitals as rapidly as possible The absence of good drinking water Is another disease breeder. Situation at Dpi Molnea Bnd. Des Moines, la:, June 3. It is neai the mouth of the rirer at Keokuk that conditions are the worst now. The sit uation is appalling. The river Is six and eight miles wide in places, and in every direction may be seen refugees on roofs of houses and in trees shout ing for help that seems impossible. At Bentonsport, Farmingtou and' Bona parte great damuge has been wrought by the flood, and half the towns are under water. It practically has been determined that there will be extra session of the legislature. Governoi Cummins is satistied that he can sup ply the needs of the flood sufferers and tornado victims by borrowing monej and have the next session of the legis lature approve his course. The situa tion in I.)es Moines is still dishearten ing, although the water continues tc fall rapidly. Ill uc llexervoir II u rutin. St. Raul, Minn., June 3.

One mile this side of Hen derson,' Minn., the stream is a mile and a half in width, .and nt Hender son bridge, where at normal stage the water flows thirty feet beneath, the angry waves are now laving the plank ing of the roadway. The members of an unknown family recently arrived from Oklahoma are all drowned and their house lias been carried down into the Mississippi. Farm buildings near the river and the bridges have been damaged and the loss to crops will be heavy. RaltoiiM IMiied to Sufferer. Washington, June 3.

When one of the most reputable con cerns in liarre guarantees that a medicine will effect a cure or they will jeturu the money, it speaks volumes as to the merits of that remedy. It is In this way that the lied Cross Pharmacy is selling Hyomei, the treatment that has made so many re markable cures of both acute and chronic cases of catarrh in Barre and vicinity. Hyomei is not a pill nor is it a liquid that has to be taken with a tablespoon or wineglass. Just breathe it in by the aid of an inhaler that comes in every outfit and benefit will be seen from the first treatment. it destroys all germ life in the air pas sages, and lungs and enriches and purities the blood with additional ozone. It eures catarrh of the head and throat, or of the stomach, liver and kidneys. Whenever mucous membrane contains catarrhal germs, there Hyomei will do its work of healing. When using this treatment, the air you breathe will be found like that on the mountain high above the sea level where grow balsamic trees and plants which make the air pure by giving off vo latile antiseptic fragrance that is healing to the respiratory organs. Remember that if Hyomei does not cure you the Ked Cross Pharmacy will refund your money. I his is a good tune to cure ca tarrh by this natural method and prevent catarrhal colds that are so common at this season. THE PHILADELPHIA STEIKE. Tie I'p of Textile Plnnta ' Is' I'rac. tlenlly Complete. Philadelphia, June 3. The strike of the textile workers inaugurated on Monday Is virtually complete. Of the 650 plants which have not granted the demand for a fifty-five hour week there are not half a dozen in operation and these are working short handed. In the Kensington district, where are located the majority of the mills, the number of idle hands is said to be more than 00,000. The mills in the southern section of the city, known as the Southwark dis trict, are completely tied up, render ing idle about 2,500 hands. More than 2,000 operatives are idle in Manayunk The lace, workers In the two mills owned by John Bromley have been granted the shorter week.

HEATH MAKESREPLY Former Assistant Poftinastcr General on TuiloetTs Chanres. ANIMUS OF ACCUSATIONS. It Vaa, Mr. Heath Aaaerta, an At tempt to lllnvkniall llliu Into Ke taininir the Cannier of the Washington l'oat Otllce. Washington, June 3. Postmaster General Payne made public the letter of former First Assistant Postmaster General Perry S. Heath in reply to the eliarges made by S. W. Tulloch of this city, formerly cashier of the Washing ton city post otlice. The letter is as follows: I tkank jou for your courteous letters o l:nh and i'uth inst. culling my atten tion to certain assertions of one S. ". Tulloch, ex-cahier of the Washington post office, and ai&o the statement of a Airs. Wining, formerly of Ohio, who Is Quoted as sayliiK that she was curried upon the rolls of the Washington otlice with the understanding that she was not to render service to the, government. If airs. Wlnans did not render service equivalent to the compensation she re ceived, her superior olticers were deceiv ed. I did not know the woman when Bhe was appointed and had no personal Inter est in her. Her name was among the large number always on my desk, and I recall that she was well recommended for a position. I did not and could not at tempt to personally ascertain whether persons appointed to position in post of fices rendered satisfactory service. I do remember that this woman became a nuisance about the post otllce department and that I refused to see her. She wag reported to me by my chief clerk as being persistent in her demands for promotion or more desirable work. She at least pre tended to my chief clerk, so he reported to me, to perform services warranting promotion or better compenpatlon. By the same token, upon the same line of comment employed by Tulloch nearly if not quite all of the transactions of the executive departments In Washington could be called Into question and Improper motives could be assigned. Necessarily I could not follow the details of the work of post office clerks; I was compelled to trust my subordinates and to rely upon postmasters. We had a change of ad ministration, a war. the Americanizing of immense foreign service and the taking over of vast expanses of new territory, but I mastered as many details as possi ble, and I proudly hold myself responsi ble for all that I did, for the humble part I took in the work of the department. I never appointed any person to any position or retained any one In any posi tion, at any time, with any sort of notion or idea that he or she was not to render full and honest service to the government for the pay received. The intimation that there was an "honorary roll" upon which persons were, placed for .politleai or per sonal or other purposes than good serv ice Is a pure invention. It Is a lie out of whole cloth, as are most of the imputa tions of Tulloch. If any persons were nc appointed or retained, it was through their own dishonest designs. There was a period extending over many months when many more men were demanded for services in Cuba. Porto Klco and at military camps in our coun try than we could supply. We drew through larger pent offices for men from classiiied service, receiving many, but when responses from post offices ceased to be suliici'iit we drew names from ap plicants outside classified service and con scientiously selected those whose capabil ity and character we deemed best estab lished. In this hurried work of appoint ments and hurried dispatch of men and materials to scenes of action some mis takes were of course made, soma confi dences as to Integrity blasted, but thesu things occur and will so long as men live. I made a visit to I'orto Itico when the Spanish form of postal service was taken over and placed under our system. I did not seek the trip and never made a more disagreeable one or one where I rendered better service or made more sacrifice. For every dollar expended vouchers were rendered and accounting was made. J made a trip to the Pacific slope. I believe In the spring of 1M. in connection with condi tions existing in post olllces at Portland, Tacoma and Seattle Incident t the han dling of the Alaskan mails and local con gestions for which a strict accounting was made. Possibly Tulloch did not dem these trips necessary, but I doubt 'If he has the- slightest conception for what they were made or what was done upon them. Pemonal References to lleuth. Thre are two personal references to me In the Tulloch assertions that I desire to mention briefly, and the others 1 will pass over as unworthy of mention or for reply from those who have had later ac cess to the official records, for these inci dents occurred four or five years ago. Complaints were made to me By clerks in the post otlice department or the oftiee of the- auditor for the treasury that an employee of the latter named Ullmer fre quently entered their rooms and In a surly, offensive and peremptory manner demanded records and carried them away without leaving any receipt or simply helped himself and when receipt wag re quested snubbed the clerk making the re quest. I was asked by our clerks to re quest and did request of treasury offi cials that Gilmer be instructed to act like a gentleman and to protect clerks In the post office department by leaving receipts for all records taken by him from the de partment. . A displaced document would naturally subject the responsible clerk to censure if not indeed a charge of dishon esty. What purpose Gilmer had In carry ing these records from the department J do not pretend to say. This incident hal no connection with (.lllmer's work as au ditor. The other reference relates to Tulloeh's displacement, from the position of cashier in the Washington post otllce. The lirst distinct recollection I have of Tuiloeh was shortly after the induction of Postmaster Merritt and the appointment of a new cashier. A number of Tulloeh's friends called upon me singly and asked me to in tercede for his reinstatement. After I had steadily declined to make any inter cession one or two more men called and advised me as a matter of politics and prudence to have him reinstated. I was advised that Tulloch had been collecting evidence of improprieties in the post of fice and that If he were not reinstated l.t would expose them; tha t I would be mailt to suffer and McKinley'fc administration would be scandalized. I remember to have stated to one ol these importunate friends that I could not conceive how an honest arid conscien tious employee of the government would want to remain In a position where wrong was being done, much less to be reinstated under such conditions, and that as he had been a sworn ofheer of the government and had not to my knowledge reported these alleged irregularities I could and would not in conscience recommend htm for any position. This is the matter to which you now call my attention and which was then.' at the instance of Tul loch, published in newspapers in Wash ington and elsewhere and thn fully an-wered.

Two hundred houses, besides the Gainesville cotton mills, were destroy ed by the storm, aggregating a prop erty loss of 5300,000. Night brought increased misery to the tornado suffer ers, for a steady rain set in late in the afternoon, attended by bitter cold weather. The town was in total dark ness all night, and the streets were fill ed with debris. All night long phy sicians pushed their way through the wreckage, guided to the suffering vic tims by the groans of ngony. Here and there a fallen tree would block the way or a wrecked house would stop prog ress. Doctors and volunteers waded through mud and water knee deep. More than 200 homes were destroyed.
