A U i FAKESTORV Young Girl Tells Sioux Gty Police Fairy Hold-Up Story Sioux City. Feb. 25. -That the story which Mist* Edna Coulson, aged IN. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 8.A. Coal son, 2200 Hamilton street, told alout having been held up and robbed of $4 whh u lie was announced yesterday by hief of Police Dineen, who said thn girl had made a complete confts sion. The chief saya that all last week the girl's mother each day pot tip a lunch for the girl and the young woman each morning left the house, supposedly to go to work in the nntty corn department of the C. Hhenkberg company, but that instead of wotking the girl hung aiound stores and passen ger stations and kept wondering what she WHS goiDg to tell her mother on pay day. Pay day came and because she had no wages sne told the holdup story. Heveral features about Miss Coulson's story of having been held up in front of the Iowa Telephone building, 411 Seventh street, failed to appeal to the detectives. The highwayman was »1 leged to have stepped out from behind a tree and taken the girl's purse, and then, after extracting two fti bills, to have given back the purse. The police on calling np the Coal son home were told by the girl's mother that she was employed by the Hhenklerg company. Inquiry there de veloped that the girl had only worked a halt day and had quit without giv ing any reason. Detective Curtis was sent to meet the girl and to him she old the story. Hhe said she had start ed to work, but did not like the job. However, she had continued to leave home each morning as usual with a lunch prepared by her mother, .She told the holdup story as an explana tion why Bhe did not bring her pay home. The girl wept frequently. The mother, who reported the liold up to the police, was chagrined to lniirn the true storv. Members of the police force said that if the girl had been willing to tlirow away her purse and had not de ared that the robber had handed it back to her, her story might have passed muster. Evidently the girl did not want to sacrifice the purse. ORPHAN Travels Far to Join His Mother id the Black Hills Dead wood, Feb. 25.—No nonored guest coming to the city could have been treated witn more attention while here enroute than has a little five-year old boy who is half orphan and who is making a long journey alone to join his mother at Wall, S. D. The boy's name is Vernon Seals. He was yester day the guest of Banks Stewart, who entertained him at dinner aud supper, kept him through the night and will thin morning put him on the Pierre train, where Conductor Willis Schenck will assume charge of him. Vernon came from Twin Bridges. Mont., where he made his home at au asylum for children. But since tnere was a chance to be reunited to his niotner, Wiley Mountjov, the superin tendent, gave him a ticket, a letter of introduction and placed him in charge of the various conductors,each of whom saw him safely in charge of the man on the next division. The chap had money, too. Yesterday he had left. All insisted on serving the lad with food and lodging along the way until he reached Edgemont. The re eeipt given him there shows he was charged #1.25 for his bed and break fast by the Burlinstoii hotel, and Banks says he has a lecture ready for that landlord the next trip he makes down the road. Tne boy bore his name and destin ntion on a label sewed firmly to the lapel of his coat, and his letter shows that each conductor wno looked after him signed bis name to the letter be fore passing bim to the next one. The iuseiiptijus are: "T. E.Nelson, Ruby Valley branch "F. M. Laudon, Mon tana Div. "C. J. Merritt, Sheri dan "C. E. Matthews, Edgemont, to Dead wood." It was here that Stewart used his opportunity to be a good Samaritan and the chap will long remember his day in Deadwood as the guest of the man who sells Woodward candies, and today he will meet his mother, and the boy's Irish heart for the national ity of the boy is clearly stamped on his face—will Iwat higher than ever.

Jones Drug Co, CORNER DRUG STORE Phone 260 PHONE 256 We handle only the best and deliver to all parts of the city JONES BROS. GRAIN CO., The Facts About Pe=ru=na. Is Peruna an alcoholic beverage in disguise? Is v COAL it Ss a substitute for whiskey? Do people bay Pernna and use it as a toddy, ft bitters, or a bracer? It would be the easiest thing in the world for any one to demonstrate tltt falsity of such statements. Let any one go to the drug store and purchase a bot tle o Peruna. Let him undertake to use it as a beverage, or take this remedy in doses considerably larger than those prescribed on the bottle. Would the resill be alcoholic intoxication? Nothing of the sort. Let any one try it and see, Peruna is a medical compound quite heavily loaded with medicinal ingred ients. If taken in doses larger than prescribed it would produce a positive drug effect No one could take it as a beverage. If any one doubts these state ments, try it and see. We know that Peruna cannot be used as a bever age that it will not intoxicate that it cannot be used as a substitute for liquors. We guarantee that PERUNA CONTAINS NO CHEAP WHISKEY— 0E ANY OTHER WHISKEY, for that matter. It contains a small per cent, of cologne spirits, absolutely essential to di§» •olve and hold in solution medicinal ingredients, but the drugs contained in Peruna prohibit its use as a beverage. It would be the easiest thing in tht world for any one to demonstrate this if they chose to do so. Peruna is sold everywhere. THE INGREDIENTS ARE PLAINLY PRINTED ON EACH BOTTLE. It has been said over and over again that chemists have analyzed Peruna and found it to contain only cubebs and whiskey. Now we challenge any chemist to demonstrate any such statement Let any one who has even a smattering knowledge of chemistry purchase a bottle of Peruna and see whether or not it contains whiskey, find out for him •elf whether or not it is composed of cheap whiskey and cubebs. Of course, cubebs is one of the ingredients of Peruna, but there are many other ingred ients. It contains hydrastis canadensis, corydalis formosa, collinsouia, and at least four other medicinal ingredients. To be sure, no chemist could so ana lyze Peruna as to be able to identify the various medicinal ingredients. This is beyond the ability of any chemist. But any ordinary chemist would be able to say that Peruna is heavily loaded with medicinal ingredients of some n™* in addition to cubebs. Now why are these statements repeated when their falsity could be so easily demonstrated? Simply because there is continued hostility toward Pe runa on the part of the medical profession. Very likely the magazines which took up the crusade against Peruna and denounced it as a cheap beverage were misled by statements of the medical profession. Probably they were sincere in their attitude towards it But now, after all these things have been •aid and refuted, it would seem to be in order for each people to use a little fairness and common sense in the matter. Every time any one says that Peruna is nothing but cheap whiskey cubebs he is telling a lie, an absolute falsehood. Most people intend to speak the truth. But the prevalent habit of repeating other people's statements, without investigation as to their trnth, has led many well-meaning people to say these false things about Peruna. Used according to the directions on the bottle, PERTTNA IS A SAFE AND RELIABLE CATARRH REMEDY, but, like any other good medicine, if taken in excess of those doses, it it It possible to nse Peruns will produce drug effects very is therefore np to every honest person to qait mCh concerning Peruna, or acknowledge that he is repeating slanders about which he knows nothing. One might just as well say that Castor Oil is an intoxicant* that if taken in large enough doses it will operate as a "booze." If people never tried to see, but simply repeated such statements about Castor Oil the majority of people would come to believe them. It is no easier to demonstrate such a statement about Castor Oil than it Any one who takes Peruna knows that such statements are false. To say that Pernna is cheap whiskey and cubebs may constitute good material for jokes on the vaudeville stage, but there is no excuse for any one wbo pretends to be truthful saying over again this oft-repeated falsehood.
