Gentlemen: I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflicted with spasmodic asthma for the past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, I chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130th street. New York, I at once obtained a bottle of Asthmalene.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical Improvement! After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared

There Is nothing particularly new
to communicate to our members this
week. The membership is growing
fast and many are preparing to join
us. During the past week Secretary
De France made a business trip to
the west and together we visited the
irrigated regions of Idaho and espe
cially the .proposed" location of our
settlement. Owing to the fact that not
sufflcient land is under option. at the
present writing It is not safe to an
nounce the location until that is com
pleted. .Some of this land is held by
eastern parties and it will require time
to get matters In shape. One of the
great difficulties has been to find a
large enough body of land in one
tract. Sufficient land can be picked up
In various places, but not in a com
pact body. We are, however, now in
a fair way of securing all the land we
want; It will take some little time,
but that was to be expected. A heavy
immigration from Nebraska, Iowa and
the Da kolas as well as from Utah is
now on, and within another year land
will be hard to get and prices will
have materially advanced.
Many have written to the company
Inquiring whether wo can employ
them and give them an. opportunity
to pay at least a portion of their loca
tion stock in labor." In reply we can
say that we are at present making
arrangements by which we may be
able to take a limited number of mem
bers and let them pay for their allott
ments in labor. We would like to hear
from all who wish to pay for their
lands In this manner. It will be nec
essary for these parties to have teams
which will be put to work building
canals, laterals and such other Im
provements as are under contempla
tion. If our arrangements carry,
which we expect within a few days,
it will be necessary for those desiring
to pay for their allottments In labor,
to go onto the lands at once. Good
liberal pay will be allowed. Of course
we cannot take everybody In on this
basis, only a limited number, and
those applying first will receive first
consideration. It may be possible
that we caa secure transportation at
least part of the way for the working
outfits for those who will work for
the company, this, however, is not
definitely settled. All desiring to work
out the cost of their allottments must
make application In the regular way
and pay tbe advance payment the
same as all others are required to do,
and as Is shown In the company's
prospectus, after which the remaining
payments will be paid In labor. Only
those who can at once or within a
short time get ready to go to work
should make application. The ad
vance payment Is required for the same
reason that we require it of those who
pay on: in cash. We have no time to
lose on idlers and Irresponsible parties
and for that reason will adhere to the
above rule. In communicating with
us on this line state what your outfit
consists of horses, wagons, imple
Considerable has been written on
the matter of irrigation and the enor
mous production under this . system.
Out time Is so thoroughly occupied
this week that It is impossible. to say
much more on the subject In this ar
ticle.' Thoss who have seen farming
by irrigation in a rood country are
fully informed and can gain little adr
ditlonal knowledge by repeated argu
ments in its favor; those unfamiliar
should read up on the subject there
being several publications devoted to
this kind of farming.
The drquth condition of the middle
west has caused an enormous interest
being taken in the' Home Makers set
tlement enterprise. Every mail brings
us large numbers of applications and
the inquiries are piling in at al most
encouraging rate.-1 It has become nec
essary to increase our facilities to han
dle the ever growing business. Few
have any conception of the amount of
painstaking labor and care falling on
the shoulders of the management.
Many obstacles &t6 encountered In
such a gigantic undertaking, which
must be met and disposed of to the
best advantage. Thousands of ques
tions are asked and must be answered.
Yet everything is moving along nicely
and we are more than satisfied. As
was stated last week, success is now
assured. Many have been waiting In
order to see how the movement would
succeed and are now rushing in to se
cure location stocks. "Nothing suc
ceeds like success," is an old saying,
and a glance at the busy force at our
home office . Convinces that the Home
Makers are on the sure road to suc
We are anxious to finish the work
of filling the membership at the earl
iest possible date, so that we can de
vote our time to surveying the lands,
platting the city and making x allott-'
ments, and getting ready to receive the
settlers. .The company will have; to
erect a number of buildings where our
members can secure temporary shel
ter while they are erecting homes.
Every provision will be made so that
members will experience as little dis
comfort as possible. Many details
must be looked after all of which re
quire time and which cannot, be done
until the matter of filling the mem
bership is off of our hands. Every
present member, can render us ma
terial aid by securing new members,
by organizing clubs, the members of
these clubs will then act as mission
aries in the movement. Good homes
await every member and at a cost far
below the actual value.- No individual
eould go Into the same region and buy
lands at anywhere near the price he
receives his allottment for from the
company. As soon as arrangements
can be made we expect to put con
siderable time to the matter of or
ganizing clubs all over the country.
There are many advantages to, be de
rived by the formation of clubs. Its
members are acquainted with each
other and the new home will be suiS
rounded by old associates. The mem
bers can assist each other In the mat
ter of erecting buildings and exchange
labor in a thousand ways. They can
get along with a much smaller outlay
for Implements at the outset and in
numerous ways can be of assistance to
one another. Present members will
not only give us material aid by se
curing additional settlers, but they
hasten the day on which the lands will
be ready for them.

" To the many things In Chicago which
can be spoken of as the highest, longest
and grandest has been added the lon
gest movable single span bridge In the
world, aays the Chicago Post.' Work
on it has just been completed, and
trains of the Chicago Terminal Trans
fer Railroad company, the Baltimore
and Ohio and the Chicago Great West
ern roads will cross the Chicago river
south , of Taylor street on the new
structure. '": " ' . '
Construction of the drainage canal
made It necesnary to remove the pier
of the old bridge south of Taylor street.
The necessity for a bridge without a
pier presented a condition of affairs
new to engineers, and much discussion
resulted as to. the beet plan to follow.
After plans for the structure were made
It was some time before a construction
company was found ready to under
take the work and guarantee its suc
cessful operation. - Its success is now
assured,1 and Chicago has the longest
movable bridge in the world. - The
Tower bridge in London Is next to It,
but the Chicago bridge exceeds Its
length by 75 feet.
The bridge contains In all about 1,500
tons of steel In addition to TOO tons of
counterweights. - Each- moving leaf
contains about 2,000,000 pounds, and,
aside from having the longest span of
any movable "bridge ever built, the
structure is especially noticeable In
that It is built for the heaviest railroad
service, carrying" double tracks. The
bridge is designed for a load of 10,000
pounds per, lineal foot of bridge In ad
dition to a concentrated load of 100,
000 pounds at any point on the floor of
the bridge, thus giving a carrying ca
pacity of more than twice that of the
next longest lift bridge in the world,
the Tower. bridge of London. The lat
ter bridge has a span of 200 feet and is
designed only for highway traffic'
In the construction of the substruc
ture In connection, with the present
work difficulties were encountered in
that owing to the narrow channel at
the center' pier of the present swing
bridge it was necessary to construct a
cofferdam of a single row of Wakefield
sheeting and to excavate to the depth
of 26 feet below city datum, a feat
thought by most of the rivef men of
Chicago to be impossible. The sub
structure of each leaf on, either' side
of the river is built on a foundation of
600 piles 50 feet in length and includes
3,500 yards of Portland cement con
crete mixed In the proportion of one
part of cement, three parts of sand and
six parts of broken stone. 4 The two
piers contain 940 cubic yards of first
class masonry O '',',
The electric equipment for the bridge
Includes for its operation two 50 horse
power motors for each leaf. The power
Is obtained from the electric plant at
the Grand Central station, from which
point' underground cables are laid to
the operating houses on the bridge,
which houses are connected by sub
marine cables laid in a trench below
the bottom of the river. Each leaf can
be controlled from Its, respective oper
ating house, and the operating devices
are also arranged so that both leaves
can be .controlled and operated by one
man from the house on the east bank
of the river. For this arrangement one
controller has. been placed In the west
house, while In the house on the east
bank two have been installed. Each of
the operating houses is fitted with a
switchboard. an indicator showing the
position of the bridge and operating de
vices.' -. ..: ' : .'. . :
SHIPPING LIVE FISH TO JAPAN
Well Boats L'aed In Carrying; Them
. Across tbe Pacific.
The exportation of live fish, an In
dustry just in its inception, promises
to assume pretentious proportions with
in another year, says a dispatch from
Tacoipa, Wash to the St. Louis Re
public. The Increasing demand from Japan
and other countries for fresh fish and
the good market in all parts cf the
world are responsible for the innova
tion. A large Puget sound fish shipper
says the day is not far distant when
live fish will be sent by the shipload
from Pacific coast fisheries to oriental
points and other parts of the world.
So far as this coast is concerned, the
plan Is an Innovation, but it ts said that
in England it has long been in prac
tice. . - . ...
Tbe fish are shipped In "well boats."
These have large tanks or wells in
which the fish are kept alive until they
reach their destination. After being
caught they are put In the tanks In the
"well boats" and fed on their natural
food until they get to the consignee.
In this way the buyers get fresh fish
In exactly tbe same condition In which
they are taken out of tbe water.

In nearly four cohwnna of space ia
his paper, ,and under -the title '"Thf

E. Morss, owner of the Indianapolis
Sentinel, pays hla,' respects to those
politicians,, and papers, . of Indiana,
who have the hardihood to object to
the Sentinel assuming to.be the party
organ of the . Hoosler, democracy, and
for its Wall street proclivities, dally
exhibited. ;-" ,
The North Vernon Sun may be a
"poor, weatZthlng," just as. Morss
says, but there is. this:.. If we felt the
Sun was as weak In its field, and of as
little service to the political party it
represents as the Indianapolis Senti
nel is in its ,fleldrwe would shut up
shop immediately and stop getting
money under false pretenses. We do
believe, and we believe three-fourths
of the democracy - of the . state will
gree with , us, tbat the Indianapolis
jentlnel is about the poorest excuse
for a daily paper published in any
town of the size of Indianapolis to be
found in America, As to being ' the
party organ of the Hoosler democracy,
we want to offer an humble protest.
For one, the Sun Is not willing to fol
low Its leadership for its democracy
is of the subsidized brand taken from
the same kettle as that of the Louis
ville Courier-Journal. We believe as
firmly as we believe anything that the
Sentinel , is the subsidized organ of
Wall street. -If It Isn't, It belles, daily,

; The Statfl Fair
The State Fair opens this year Aug
ust 30. The groiinds purchased by
the board of public lands' and build
ings will be refitted with all new barns
for the horses -cattle, swine and sheep.
The new barns will be an agreeable
surprise to the stock exhibitors, as
they are. a great Improvement over
the sheds that' formerly, were at the
old fair grounds,' The new horse barns
are 34x114', 6x9 feet .stalls, shingle roof
and drop siding. .The. cattle barns are
built the same style, only 30x120 feet
In size. The hog barns are 26x108 and
the accommodations this year, for the
stockmen are said to be equal to any
that are furnished in the eastern
states. - The board has also provided
a complete - new water " plant which
will be aJgreat improvement over the
water system used at the grounds.
The buildings are all newly painted
and repaired so that they have the ap-s
pearance of all new buildings. The old
fence around the grounds has. been
taken down and a new ; woven wire
fence put' up In Its place. The race
track has, been put in fine shape and
is acknowledged by horsemen to be:
the fastest half mile track in the state.
The special attraction for this year is
the firemen's, hose cart race, which
conies off Tuesday and Wednesday.
For this race there are some four or
five hundred dollars offered in prizes
and it will certainly be a very inter
esting feature of the fair. The board
of managers look for the largest ex
hibit of stock that has ever been held
at the grounds. They have several
large entries from New York of blood
ed stock. The agricultural and horti
cultural exhibits, while they may not
be as large as some years, will be very
complete and from the entries already
made will more than fill the buildings.
The Nebraska state fisheries are making-
arrangements to have the finest
exhibit of fish ever held at the fair
any, Information relative to mat
ters in regard to the fair all communi
cations should be sent direct to Hon.
