The reports of the culpability of the police department have been more per sistent than of any other department of the city and It Is believed the grand jury will bring In a number of Indictments.

It had on board 675 enlisted men of the Twenty-second Infantry, besides a full list of cabin passengers and $1,660,000 In pesos for the Philippines CRUSHES OUT THE LIFE a. - t. dT t m i jm The most loathsome and repulsive of all living' things is the serpent, and the vilest and most degrading of all human diseases is Contagious Blood Poison. The serpent sinks its fangs into the flesh and almost instantly the poison passes through the entire body. ' Contagious Blood Poison, beginning with a little ulcer, i aooa contaminates every drop of blood and spreads throughout the whole system. Painful swellings appear in the groins, a red rash and copper col- ' red splotches break out on the body, the mouth and throat become ulcerated, and the hair and eye brows fall out ; but these symptoms are mild compared to the wretchedness and suffering that come in the latter stages of the disease when it attacks the bones and more vital parts of the body. It is then that Contagions Blood Poison is Been in all its hideousness. The deep eating ab scesses and sickening ulcers and tumors 6how the whole system is corrupted and poisoned, and unless relief comes soon this serpent disease tightens its coils and crushes out the life. The only antidote for the awful virus is S. S. S. It cures permanently the most desperate cases. It is nature1 m remedy, composed entirely of vegetable ingredients. S. S. S. destroys every vestige of the poison and removes all danger of transmitting the awful taint to others. Nothing else will do thin- Strong mineral remedies, like mercury and potash, dry up the sores and drive in the disease, but do not cure permanently.

One of the suspects, a man about 40 years old, waa caught near Fowler, three miles from the scene of the wreck. He refused to give his name, but says he had been working on the streets at Trinidad until a few days ago. Later a man who gave his name as John Duffy was arrested In Pueblo. He was taken In on the strength of a telegram that a man having three pairs of trousers, sup posed to have been stolen from the wreck, waa on his way to Pueblo. Duffy, carrying a, package, was arrested as he left the shop qf a local tailor. ; When an attempt waa made to detain him he struck1 the proprietor and ran. He was captured, but a man who accompanied him ettcared. Duffy was held In S2C3 for a hearing. He declares his Innocence.

ONLY TWO WHO CAN PAINT CATS Graceful Poses of Household Pet a Difficult Thing to Repro duce on Canvas. (Copyright. 1903, by Press Publishing Co.) BRUSSELS, Belgium, Oct. 31. (New York. World Cablegram Special Telegram.) Two painters of the nineteenth century are conceded to have faithfully reproduced the cat on canvas. The subtle secrets' of the feline anatomy seem to have defied all other efforts to Immortalize the graceful sinuosities so suggestive of the curious nature of the domestic pet. One of the two Is Lambert, a Frenchman and a pupil of De la Croix; the other is Mme. Henrlette Sonner, who was born at Amsterdam In 1821, the daughter of a widely known Dutch painter, J. A. Knlp. With a grand fatlitr and uncle also artists, Mme Bonner was veritably born to an artlstio heritage: Her father lost his sight through his assiduity to his art and he forbade his daughter to touch a brush. But when he saw how she pined to try her little hand he aas moved, and when she was 11 years old he consented to her trying brush and pencils. Then, although blind, he became her master-and a severe one, teaching her that to succeed the painter must be his own most Inexorable critic. After he died in 1SS0 the young woman married M. Sonner. She and her husband were' poor and when children came she began to paint for a living. Her talent was long unrecognised. Then she cam to Brussels to live. There one day she saw In a street one of those big, sturdy dogs one sees hitched to carts In that city drop down and die In harness while its master bent over It sorrowfully. She painted this scene, calling It the death of a friend, and gained reputation. Soon afterward a stray cat took up Its abode at her house and she could not chase It away. She began to study Its graceful feline motions and thus took up cat portraiture. She studied cats in all at titudes and all environments, but under the greatest difficulties, for a cat dislikes, above all things, to be pictured. Finally she had an Iron cage made, shut pussy lnulde and had her at the mercy of her brush. Mme Sonner paints the cat with a marvelous surety, frankness and vivacious nesa. She has received two of the highest orders of Belgium for ber pictures of cats besides mcjiy other distinctions. Prof. Nonsuea Uneonnclous. BERLIN.

ANARCHIST TO BE RELEASED Ho Will, However, Be Conducted to French Frontier and Sent to England. (Copyright 1903, by Press Publishing Co.) PARIS, Oct. 81. (New York World Cable gram Special Telegram.) The authorities have fulled to make out a case against Panneggiunl, who has been released, but under the old sentence of expulsion, as an anarchist, he has been conducted to the frontier and sent to England. The Spanish heirs of the artist Esoosur will begin suit against his widow for right to possession of the srt treasures seised at No. a Rue De Londres. Enille D'Aurlgnac, whose term, with good conduct allowance, expired on September 39, will possibly be released next week, but he will be obliged to sign a receipt making over to the government the money seized on the Humberts in Madrid, amounting to 115,0(0 francs, to cover the expense of tho trial. It la said that Emlle will refuse to sign, thereby prolonging his confinement Indefinitely. Mme. Humbert's present occupation In prison, sorting feathers, will seem appro priate, she being expert at plucking pigeons. The proposed proceedings against Le baudy. "emperor of Sahara," suggests a Uilbertlan paradox, the Idea being to secure his extradition, bring him back to France and then banish him.
