UNDER date of January 10, 1897, Dr.
Hartman received the following
'My wife had been suffering from a
complication of diseases for the past 25
"Her case had baffled the skill of some
of the most noted physicians. One of her
worst troubles was chronic constipation of
several years' standing.
"She also was passing through that most
critical period in the life of a woman
change of life. In June, 1895, I wrote to
you about her case. You advised a course
of Peruna and Manalin, which we at once
commenced, and have to say it completely
cured her. She firmly believes that she
would have been dead only for these
"About the same time I wrote you about
my own case of catarrh, which had been of
25 years' standing. At times I was almost
past going. I commenced to use Peruna
according to your instructions and continued
its use for about a year, and it has com
pletely cured me.
" Your remedies do all that you claim
for them, and even more. Catarrh
cannot exist where Peruna Is taken
according to directions. Success to
you and your remedies. "
John O. Atkinson.

In a letter dated January 1, 1900, Mr.,
Atkinson says, after five years' experience
with Peruna :
' will ever continue to speak a good
word for Peruna. in my rounds as a
traveling man am a walking adver

many people during the past year to
use Peruna with the most satisfactory
results. I am still cured of catarrh."
John O. Atkinson,
Box 272, Independence, Mo.
When old age comes on, catarrhal dis
eases come also. Systemic catarrh is almost
universal in old people.
This explains Jwhy Peruna has become
so indispensable to old people Peruna is
their safe-guard. Peruna is the only
remedy yet devised that meets these cases'
Such cases 'cannot be treated locally;
nothing but an effective systemic remedy
could cure them This is exactly what

With its January Issue Scrlbner'a
Magazine enters upon Us 33d volume.
Among other striking features for 1903
It announces tho reminiscences of the
famous Confederate general, John B.
Gordon, probably tho most fascinating
and popular lecturer on war times.
General Gordon is idolized in tho
south, where he Is now the commander-in-chief
of the United Confederate
VeteranB, and he Is equally popular in
the north, where ho won all hearts
by his friendship for General Grant
during the closing weeks of his life.
The vivid personality of General Gor
don Is expressed on every page of his
reminiscences. They will begin to ap
pear In Scrlbner's In the early spring.
The lawyer happened to be acquaint
ed with a juror in a petty civil case,
and ho met him during a recess of the
court, says the Brooklyn Eagle. The
lawyer was Just "lighting up," and un
der ordinary circumstances he would
have offered the other a cigar unhesli
tatlngly. But It occurred to him that
it might not look right.
"I suppose," he said guardedly, "that
a cigar would not influence your ver
dict." The Juror was equally cautious.
"A good one wouldn't," ho replied,
"but a poor one might prejudice me."
He got a good cigar.

Bounded the alarm. Beforo any of tho
firemen arrived the entire main struc

Tho main structure was 700 feet In
length, 1G0 feet In width and thirty

UNITED AFTER MAN.'yEARS.
Backus Finds Daughter After
PLATTSMOUTH. There is connect
ed with the llfo of Mrs. Agnes Lleber
shal, formerly MIsb Agnes Backus of
this city, a story which reads like fic
tion. Mrs. Llebershal's mother died six
months tjfter the former was born,
and her father, R. G. Backus, after
placing nls child In the keeping of Mr.
and Mrs. Dennis McCarthy of this city,
drifted out into tho world to seek his
fortune, and not from that day until
recently did he hear anything directly
from his daughter.
Then ho reclved a letter from her
addressed to Cincinnati, O. He lm
medltely answered it, expressing his
great pleasure at hearing from her and
stilting that he had written many let
ters to relatives and others In Platts
mouth inquiring about her, but for
some unknown cause these letters were
unanswered and he had been kept In
ignorance as to whether or not the
child was still alive.
Mr. Backus arrived the day beforo
Christmas and is spending the holi
days with IiIh daughter. Ho is a rep
resentative of the Cincinnati Times
Star and from general appearance is a
very happy man. His daughter was
married about six months ago to An

tirely through his abdomen, severing
the internal organs In many places.
After telling his sorrowing parents
that he did the deed on purpose he
submitted to a surgical operation with
out sign of faltering and died from
hemorrhage and the shock.
He was a bright, Intelligent boy, a
model Bon, whose life had a short
time before been bubbling over with
Christmas Joy. On bis death bed he
said he had been considering the d?ed
