Mr. II. I). Gates ha been a prominent
man in Owosso for many years an old citi
en and much respected resident. He lias
held the important position of City TrtaJ
urer, and his endorsement is worthy the
consideration of the public. This is what
he says :
" I take great pleasure in speaking words
of praise for Doan's Kidney Pills, and my
personal experience is what makes me leel
that way toward the pills. For several yeara
1 have had an almost continual backache.
I could hardly stoop over, and anything that
required bending over would aggravate my
backache so that I would be compelled to go
and lie down for awhile. I was also greatly
troubled With the urine. Sometimes it was
very frequent, and then again it would
become very scanty and high colored. "When
that way mystomai h would bloat up terribly.
This is what might be '-ailed the dark side
of my story. The bright side followed
when I procured a box of Doan's Kidney
Pills at the drug store of Johnson St Hen
derson and began their use. Their action
, was almost like magic. The second day
after I commenced taking them my back
felt better. I continued their use, and to-day
my back feels splendid. It is free from any
. ache or lameness, something I have Dot
experienced for a number of years. The
urination has been restored to a natural
condition and regularity. I do not bloat
anymore. Another member of my family
was troubled in nearly the same manner,
and obtained the same benefit from using
Doan's Kidney Pills that I did. Their
wonderful success has made me enthusiastic

Dr. Loje, the French physician, who
has greatly interested himself iu the
question, "What passes iu the head of
a decapitated human beiug?" relates the
following remarkable story, which he
says was taken from the archives of the
Vienna courts: It was iu the - year
that Schoeucuburg, a well
and four of his associates were caught
and condemned to death. They were
already on their knees ready to pay the
penalty of their bloody deeds by sub
mitting to the awful fate of decapita
tion when Sohoenenburg addressed the
Judge, asking that his four companions
might bo pardoned on certain condi
tions. "If," asked the bandit, "after I
am beheaded, I get up and walk to the
first of my comrades, will you pardon
him?" The judge thought that ho was
pretty safe in complying with the re
quest. "Then," continued Schoenen
burg, "if I walk to the second, the
third and the fourth, will you pardon
them also?" The judge replied that if
such a miraculous feat could bo per
formed he would obtain pardon for the
other three also. Tho bandit was now
satisfied, and, bending his head, he re
ceived the fatal blow. Inetautly tho
head rolled down in the sand, but to
the surprise and horror of all present
the headless trunk arose and walked
alone. Aimlessly, it appeared, tho body
walked around until it passed the first,
the second, tho third and the fourth
condemned bandit, when it fell down
and became motionless. Query, How
run Id a headless body think?"
The Short Stops of the Train.
Sustained journey speed, from end to
end of u run, i3 not niorely a matter of
highspeed uetweeu stutious. It involves
also making the station stops short.
The more stops thero are the more im
portant is promptness at stations. Tho
observant man who travels much can
not fail to notice tho effect on trainmen,
on station men and even on passengers
of habitual fast running. All hands get
trained to alertness and precision of
movement. It is a fine thing to watch
the handling of a very fast train at a
station. It is invigorating to see the
speed without hasto of the inspectors
and the baggagemen, tho quick and
smooth change of engines and tho cut
ting off of the dining car. I have seen
tho other extreme on a Southern rail
road, whore tho easy going conductor
ran past a flag station and then backed
down a mile to let off one passenger.
His sereuo indifference to time did not
mako mo foel any safer on bis train.
The Human Electric Battery.
The superstition that human beings
should sleep with their heads to the
north is believed by the French to have
for its f oundation a scientific fact. They
affirm that each human system is in it
self an electrio battery, the head being
one of the electrodes, the feet tho other.
Their proof was discovered from experi
ments which the Academy of Sciences
was allowed to mako on the body of a
man who was guillotined.
This was taken the instant it fell and
placed upon a pivot free to movo as it
might. The head part, after a little
vacillation, tamed to the north, and the
body then remained stationary. It was
tamed half way round by one of the
professors, and again the head end of
the trunk moved slowly to the cardinal
point due north, tho same results being
repeated until the final arrcstation of
PcMant and King.
Henry IV, the idol of tho French
people, was nlso a king of phrase mak
ers. During one of his tours through
Franco ho arrived at a small villago
and ordered that the most intelligent
villager bo sent to converse with him
while he dined. When tho rustic ap
peared, tho king ordered him to take
seat opposite to him at tho table. ' 'What
is your name?" asked the monarch.
"Sire, I am called Gaillard, " replied
tho peasant. "What is tho difference,"
said tho king, "between gaillard" (i.e.,
a jolly fellow) "and paillard" (i. o., a
rake)? "Sire," was the reply, "there is
hnt. t t.hlo between the two."

8T. LOUIS CONGRESS CALLS FOR CON
TRIBUTIONS OF MONEY
As the First Thing Needful If the 8trike
la Nut HeMU'd by Sept. 20 Another
Meeting Culled for lil ago, When Other
Actlou Will lie Taken.
Bt. Louis, Bept. 1. Tha conference of
labor leaders promulgated a platform
yesterday and agreed that If the coal
strike wa not settled by Bept. 20. that
day week a convention should be held
at Chicago to take further action. The
resolutions are preceded by a long pre
amble the pith of which Is a pronounce
ment against "government by Injunc
tion" and a declaration that the courts,
under the Injunction, are running the
country, regardless of the rights of Its
citizens. The courts are called judicial
despots, charged with resorting to the
"most shameless defiance of decency."
Then the resolutions follow:
Liberty a "Stupendous Sham."
"We have met to counsel together and
have come to the following conclusions
"Whereas, The present strike of coal
miners has again demonstrated the fact
that our so-called liberty is not freedom,
but is a stupendous sham, under which
millions are degenerating, while hun
dreds of thousands of men, women and
children are starving In hovels ard on
the public highways;
"Whereas, This condition has become
permanent for a large and ever-Increasing
number of our population as long as
we permit a comparatively small class
of legalized exploiters to monopolize the
means of production and distribution for
their private benefit a fact again obvi
ous in the case of the miners;
"Whereas, Appeals to congress and to
the courts for relief are fruitless, elnce
the legislative, as well as the executives
Judicial power are under the control of
the capitalistic class, so that it has come
to pass In this 'free country' that, while
cattle and swine have a right to the
public highway, Americans, so-called
freemen, have not;
Call for General Contributions.
"Whereas, Our capitalistic class, as Is
again shown In the present strike, Is
armed, and has not only policemen, mar
shals, sheriffs and deputies, but also a
regular army and militia, In order to en
force government by Injunction, sup
pressing lawful assemblage, free speech,
and the right to the public highway,
while on the other hand, the laboring
men of the country are unarmed and
defenseless, contrary to the words and
spirit of the constitution of the United
States. Therefore, be it
"Resolved, That we hereby set apart
Friday, the third day of September, 1897,
as a 'Good Friday' for the cause of
suffering labor In America and contri
bute the earnings of that day to the
support of our struggling brothers, the
miners, and appeal to every union man
and every friend of labor throughout
the country to do likewise.
May Hold n Oneral Convention,
"Resolved, If the strike of the miners
Is not settled by the 20th day of Septem
ber, 1897, and announcement made to
that effect by the president of the Unit
ed Mine Workers, a general convention
be held at Chicago on Monday, Sept. 27.
1897, by the representatives of all unions,
sections, branches, lodges, and kindred
organizations of laboring men and
friends of their cause, for the purpose
of considering further measures In the
interests of the striking miners and la
bor In general.
"Resolved, That we consider the use
of the ballot as the best and safest
means for the amelioration of the hard
ships under which the laboring class
I .i. - Like a Call to Arms.
"Resolved, That the public ownership
of railroads and telegraphs is one of
the most necessary reforms for our body
"Resolved, That we most emphatical
ly protest against government by in
junction, which plays havoc with even
such political liberty as workmen have
saved from the steady encroachment of
capitalism, and be it finally
"Resolved, That no nation In which
the people are totally disarmed can long
remain a free nation, and therefore, wo
urge upon all liberty-loving citizens to
remember and obey article 2 of the con
stitution of the United States, which
reads as follows: 'The right of the
people to keep and bear arms shall not
be Infringed.' "
DISCUSSION ON THE PLATFORM.
Sovereign Willing to Go to Jail to Test tha
Question 11I Injunction.
St. Louis, Sept. 1. When the resolu
tions committee of the labor conference re
ported the platform yesterday and it had
been read there was a deluge of motions,
none of which was acted upon, a recess
being taken to 2 p. m. The delegates
were eager for work, and the afternoon
session was set in motion promptly at 2
o'clock. After considerable talk in which
Williams, a St. Louis delegate, endeav
ored to have the coming convention held
In St. Louis, and three or four attempts
to change the date of the conference, it
was decided that the matter should re
main as Introduced In the platform, and
the labor congress will be held In Chica
go on Monday, Sept. 27. The third plank
of the platform was amended by the
use of the word "proper" before "ut?e of
the ballot." and the resolution now reads
as follows: "That we consider the proper
use of the ballot as the best and safest
means for the amelioration of the hard
ships under which the laboring class
Clemens, of Kansas, moved that the
last two resolutions In the platform be
considered simultaneously. He favored
their adoption. Webster, of St. Louis,
wanted to know If these "milk and
water" resolutions disposed of the Im
portant matter of government by injunc
tion. "If this is so," Webster continued,
"any Judge could say through an Injunc
tion 'get off the earth; you have no
rights here.' I then reply to the courts
'you He.' ". Webster went on at great
length and gave his views on the In
junction matter. He wanted congress to
Investigate this matter.
"Why," said Sovereign, "this conven
tion has rejected a proposition looking
to this very end. Even If congress did
give us the rights we want the courts of
tho country would still have the power
of Injunction and they could then throttle
us. The convention should inform the
world that If this matter is to be tested
the miners should break all injunctions."
Sovereign said he was willing to go to
Jail In support of hi idea. "It Is lime,"
said Sovereign, "to bring the miners and
courts face to face In this matter and
force an Issue. Fill up the Jail with vio
lators of injunctions, and when the men
who started this movement are Incar
cerated thousands of others will be
found to take their places. Cheers.
The laboring people can vote for years
but nothing can be accomplished. Let ua
reorganize this government," shouted
Sovereign. "Let us stand up and assert
ourselves Behind these Injunctions
stand Gatling guns and Winchesters,
but we fear them not. Let us hold up
the flag and tear down the courts. We
stand on our dignity and will have our
liberty from this time on."
I) Kits IS CALLED TO THE FRONT.
Say He nan Appealed to the Courts for the
Last Time for Justice.
The convention broke into wild chc r
Ing which developed in a minute into a
spontaneous call for Debs. The famous
labor leader and avowed head of the
Social Democracy of this country, who
had not uttered a word since the con
vention opened, but who had not missed
a minute of its proceedings, rose from
his seat and came slowly to the plat
form. When the cheering ceased Debs
began a speech which was Interrupted
at the end of nearly every sentence by
cheering and hand-clapping. He said:
"I believe the gravity of the industrial
situation In this country Is well under
stood. It Is quite evident the delegates
to the convention are cognizant of the
fact that civil liberty Is dead in Amer
ica. I have said and say again that
for the last time I have appealed to the
courts for Justice, and shall appeal to
them no more.
"The American Railway Union ex
pended $45,000 to have the question of
civil rights tested In the supreme courts
of the United States only to be told
that we have no rights that capital Is
bound to respect. Shall we appeal to
the supreme courts again? No. We
appeal Jo this convention and to the
country for an uprising of all the com
mon people In every walk of
life to "beat bac the courts
and re-enthrone the rights of
the American people. Labor Day Is
near. What shall we do? I predict,
that we will see the extraordinary
spectacle of enslaved labor rattling Its
chains and dancing to the music. Labor
is the cheapest commodity on God's
earth, and yet there are those who
would have it at a lower price.
"Only the other day the united voice
of labor was raised against the ap
pointment of Mr. Powderly to a federal
position, and I notice that he was
promptly put Into the place. Mingled
cheers and hisses. From Justice of the
peace to justice of the supreme court of
the United States all the judicial pow
ers of the United States are directed
against labor. All the organized sources
of society are against labor, and If la
bor expects to emancipate itself labor
itself must do it." Debs then told the
convention that much destitution ex
isted among the miners of the once
proud state of Indiana, and stated that
1,000 underground workers and their
families were starving. He read the
report of the commission appointed by
Governor Mount to examine Into the
condition of the miners of Indiana and
then took up the thread of his argu
ment. "The time has not quite come to in
cite the populace," said Debs, shaking
his fist vehemently. "I serve notice on
the plutocratic element of this country
that we are on the eve of another meet
ing In Chicago which will be attended
by all branches of labor. That conven
tion will take up these same questions
and will Institute agitation and keep
it going until the public: conscience and
public heart are aroused. Then will come
such an uprising as the world has never
"I shrink from that bloodshed" and
Debs paused Impressively "but If this
is necessary to preserve liberty and our
rights in that event I will shed the last
drop of blood that courses through my
veins. Outbreak of cheering. Pluto
cracy cannot buy me. We no
longer have a republic; there Is not a
vestige of it left. The judiciary of this
country has placed a padlock on my Hps,
forbidden me to walk on public high
ways, and destroyed all of my rights.
The people are ripe for a great
change. All they lack is direction and
leadership. Let this conference sunply
It. Let this conference set the race."
Debs continued at some length and
grew more Impassioned as he proceed
ed. When he closed the platform was
adopted as it stood and the convention,
after hearing some more speeches, ad
journed sine die.
ANOTHER HUMAN BODY BOILED.
Defense in tho Luetgert Case Tries an Ex
periment Jury Secured.
Chicago, Aug. 30. The Jury that will
try Adolph Luetgert for the murder of
his wife has been-secured, the last man
being accepted Saturday. The trial
will begin this morning. A human body
was boiled in the vat in which It is
maintained by the prosecution the body
of Mrs. Louise Luetgert was reduced to
fluid and then Hooded away with the
sewage of the factory. Those who were
at the experiment were the lawyers
Hnd scientists Interested In the defenso
The boiling was done under the same
conditions In which it is alleged the
murder was committed and the wit
nesses of it say the test will disprove
the state's theory. Dr. John H. Long,
head professor of the Northwestern
Medical college, who was In charge of
the experiment, said that at the end of
three hours' boiling the big bones were
still Intact. This, he says, will have a
tendency to destroy the state's case, as
the testimony on that point is to the
effect that Luetgert did the work In two
