JWerre —John Jump Up, a ffotix

a celebrated man among his people,
died a few days ago at his home on
White river, in western South Dakota.
When a young man he participated in
many of the fights betweer ae Sioux
and Pawnees and other enemies of the
Sioux nation,and on one occasion, when
25 years of age, single handed fought
fonr Indian enemies, killing three of
them. Ho participated in numerous
other attrays.and a I wave gave a good
account of himself. He is suivived
by two

HS
"Monk," arrived in Alexandria some
time during the morning of last Sat
urday and after sizing up the situa

portunity for plying his vocation con
sisting of a bungling "ehort change"
stunt, succeeded after a number of
failures in "working the bug" at a
couple of stores in the sums of 4
and $5 respectively. The kid's little
game is as "old its the hills" and con
sists of tendering a large bill in pav
inent for a very small purchase,and af
ter receiving his change and pur
chase, claims be had meant to tender a
smaller bill, and producing it, asks to
again mase the change and return him
the first tender. It is during this sec
ond change making and by his own
counting that the swindle is perpetrat
ed and in each instance here amounted
to four dollars in one and five dollars
in the other.

The jiossible clew to the identity of
the suicide was furnished by Robert R.

who has been missing for six months.
Several marks on the body tallied with
marks on the missing Lee. As soon as

BANK DEPOSITS
Guaranty of
Deposits
as Pro­
vided in
New
State
Law.
Pierre, Feb. 28. Inasmuch as a law
to guarantee, or provide for the insur
ance of baDk deposits, was among the
platform pledges, the redemption of
that pledge is a matter of general in
terest. Several bills were introduced
early in the session, one of which
passed the house. It has been re
riuted as passed by the house, and is
pending before the Benate committee to
be reported at an early day. As prac
tically agreed upon by the committee,
it will provide as follows:
The "State Association of Inoorpor
ated Banks" shall consist of not less
than 100 existing banks, whose aggre
gate capital shall be not lees than
fl/HiO.OOO. Each shall send to the
state treasurer a statement of it" capi
tal. surplus and average daily depo
nits. The membership fee is flOO for
banks with flii.ooo capital and ranges
up to $170 for a bank with #100,000
capital. The premium to oe paid on
organizing or joining, shall be one mill
on each dollar of the sum of its aver
age daily deposits, and the same to be
raid annually thereafter. The state
treasurer shall issue to each a certifi
i ate of membership to be framed and
bung up in the bank, which certi6cat»
-tates that the fund thus created shall
be applied to the prompt payment of
the loss of all deposits in any bank
thus insured which shall fail. Should
tueh fund lie insufficient to cover tin
1 oss it shall be distributed pro rata and
the balance shall be paid out of tbe in
surance fund as soon as a sufficient
sum shall have accumulated.
After tne fcftod shall have become
sufficiently large, tbe public examiuer,
state treasurer and auditor, who shall
constitute a board of commissioners,
may reduce the annual premium, and
may again increase it if necessary
National banks are eligible to mem
bership. The treasurer is responsi"le
on his bond for the deposit insurance
fund and he may invest it in state war
lants. No member of the association
sua 11 agree to pay more than 4 per
cent interest on deposits,and no deposit
at a higher rate shall be deemed to
ha»'e been insured. It is made a fel
ony for any officer of an association
hank to fail to comply with the
terms of the act.
The house bill gave the commis
sioners power to levy special assess
ments but the Benate committee has
cut this provision out. It will also
recommend increasing the minimum
capital for banks entering the
ation to $15,000.

Madison, Wis., March 1.—Interest in
the day's session of the senatorial pri
mary investigation focused In the col
lection of supposedly Lutheran minis
ters whose names were brought into
the proceedings, having received
amonnts ranging from $7.50 to $15
from the Stephenson fund on Aug. 14.
One minister, whose name was sug
gestive of Roman Catholic faith, re
ceived $400. Concerning all of these
checks R. H. Sackett averred he knew
nothing and that he "presumed" they
had nothing to do with the campaign.
He could be no more definite than
this.
Another interesting feature was the
expense account of C. C. Wellensgard
of Green Lake county, present assem
nlyman, who was given $250 to dis
burse. Wellensgard's statement was
offered In evidence. Accompanying It
was a short letter which closed with
the information that "I beat Hitchcock

Mr. Sackett could not explain a bill

SUFFRAGETTES UNDAUNTED
Hold Demonstration for Members Ma
leased From Jail.
I.on Ion, March 1.—The woman suf
fragists are losing no opportunity to
advertise the cause. They gathered
in force outside of Holloway Jail to
welcome three of their members who
had just completed one month's im
prlconmeut for trying to interview
Premier Asquith. In spite of the fact
that snow was falling they formed in
a procession and marched to Holborn,
where a breakfast of welcome was
given for the "martyrs."
Miss Christabel Pankhurst, In ad
dressing the gathering, complained
that while Mrs. Lawrence and the
other leaders of their organization
had been sentenced to two months'
Imprisonment for their raid on the
house of commons Mrs. Despard, the
leader of a rival society, had got off
with only one month. The speaker
promised another raid on the house
of commons March 30, when the Lon
don women will be joined by delegates
from Lancashire.
GOOD RESULTS EXPECTED
Maritime Conference at London i
compliahed Much.
Washington, March 1.—Following
the agreement reached by the marl
time conference at London not to
make public the details of the protocol
laying down rules for the government
of the international prize court at
The Hague until the third week In
March the state department is not
giving out officially any statement
covering what has been accomplished.
In Washington the results of the
conference are satisfactory Indeed,
highly satisfactory, said one official
who is thoroughly conversant with
what the conference has been doing.
"There has been an evident desire to
reach a satisfactory adjustment on
many questions of great international
importance," he added, "and there has
been a marked willingness to come to
an understanding that is worthy of
the highest praise. Concessions have
been made by all the countries repre
sented and the whole subject has been
approached with a spirit of forbear
ance p.nd of effort to bring about sub
stantial results."
2 CENTS TO NEWFOUNDLAND
Reduction in Postage Between United
States and Colony in Effect.
Washington, March 1.—Beginning

cents as heretofore.
The reform is said to be due largely
to the efforts of Dr. Wilfred Grenfell,
the famous missionary to Labrador,

Roosevelt and Postmaster General
Meyer on the subject.

The Facts About Pe-ru na.
Is Peruna an alcoholic beverage in disguise? Is it possible to use PeruM
Es
a substitute for whiskey Do people buy Peruna and use it
a bitters, or a bracer?
It would be the easiest thing in the world for any one to demonstrate the
falsity of such statements. Let any one go to the drug store and purchase a bat*
tie of 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 result
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*
lents. 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 stat#»
ments, try it and see. We know that Peruna cannot be used as a bever*
sge, that it will not intoxicate that it cannot be used as a substitute for
liquors. We guarantee that PERUNA CONTAINS NO CHEAP WHISKEY—
OR ANY OTHER WHISKEY, for that matter.
It contains a small per cent, of cologne spirits, absolutely essential to dkh
»lve and hold in solution medicinal ingredients, but the drugs contained
la
Peruna prohibit its use as a beverage. It would be the easiest thing in t)M
world for any one to demonstrate this if they chose to do so.
Peruna is sold everywhere. THE INGREDIENTS APF! PLAINLY
PRINTED ON EACH BOTTLE. It has been said over and over again that
chemists have analyzed Peruna and found it to contain only cuLebs and
whiskey. Now we challenge any chemist to demonstrate any such statement.
Let any one who has even a smattering knowledge of chemistry purchase
bottle of Peruna and see whether or not it contains whiskey, find out for him
self 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, collinsonia, 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 kiniH
in addition to cubebs.
Now why are these statements repeated when their falsity could be
easily demonstrated? Simply because there is continued hostility toward Pe
runa on the part of the medical profession. Very likely the magazines which
took np 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
said and refuted, it would seem to be in order for such people to use a little
fairness and common sense in the matter.
Every time any one says that Perona is nothing bat cheap whiskey and
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 truth, has led many well-meaning people to
lay these false things about Peruna.
Used according to the directions on the bottle^ PERUNA 18 A SAFS
AND RELIABLE CATARRH REMEDY, but, like any other good medicine il
taken in excess of those doses, it will produce drug effects very
unpleasant'to
the person who takes it.
It is therefore up to every honest person to quit making such
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 neonle
never tried to see, but simply repeated such statements about Castor OiL
thi
majority of people would come to believe them. It is no easier to demonstrate
such
a
statement about Castor Oil than it would
