1899 and the balance remaining In the fun1

was transferred to the general fund.
Treasurer Ftuffer, who baa made the

that the revenue from such a levy could be
used for the discharge of any state Indebt

Mitt Fair Oflleea Opened.
A temporary office of the Board of Man
agers of the state fair has been estab
lished In the ' food department at the
tatehouae and will be maintained there
until Secretary Furnas opens headquarters
in thla city. O. G., Furnas, superintendent
of concessions, and S. C. Bassett, member
of the Board of Agriculture, are looking
after the preliminary work, or as much of
It as is belug done In this city. The
board's headquarters will be opened about
August 15, probably In the Lindell hotel.
"About all we want now to make the
atate fair a big success Is good weather,"
, said Mr. Bassett. "If we have good weather
we will have, lots of people; we already
have exhibits in prospect that warrant us
In saying that the fair will surpasa pre
"We are reliably Informed that for the
first time In several years the farm Im
plement dealers will be represented by big
displays. This will add to the attractive
ness of the fair and ought ' to be appre
ciated. An effort was made to get all the
dealers Into another combination to stay
out, but several declined, and It now looka
- as though most of the firms will be rep
resented. We bave given one firm permis
sion to erect a permanent building on the
grounds and It Is understood that others
will soon ask for the same privilege."
Secretary Furnas la hard at work at his
home In Brownvllle arranging for the ez
position and distributing advertising mat
ter and literature calculated to bring forth
many thousands of people. Among the lm
provements on the grounds are several new
livestock barns, now nearly completed. The
fair will open on August 29 and close on

leaders that W. J. Bryan will join the
spellbinders and tour the atate during the
months of September and October. It
has not been decided whether or not he

but owing to Ha expense It la more than
likely that he will be placed on an equal
footing with the other fusion orators.
Secretary, of State Marsh hss decided to
avoid any possible dispute over claims by

be about the only coat connected with the
submission of the amendment. There Is
such a wide difference of opinion as to the
publication of the amendment In the dally
newspapera that I resolved to restrict Its
publication to the weekly periodicals, so
that there will be no trouble snd no dispute
over the matter."

Ex-Congressman C. Felbam of Bancroft,
My sister-in-law has been suffering from
catarrh of the throat for a considerable
time. Bhe has been using Peruna for about
one week and, la manifestly Improved. I
believe it la an excellent remedy for ca
tarrh." . ' C. PELHAM.
A CURABLE DISEASE.
Chronic Catarrh Is' Pronounced Cur
able' by Dr. Hartman.
There are almost countless numbers ot
remedies said to cure chronic catarrh. 'The
most ot these are of no use whatever and
worae than useless, being actually harmful.
A few are successful in a small number of
cases those which are .'very slight and
easily curable cases which might perhaps
get well by simply taking care not to catch
But of all the vast multitudes of medl-
clnes, it cannot be said that there are more
than two or three which are actually spe
cifics, and without doubt the most reliable
la Peruna. It always cures when faithfully
and conscientiously used. It not only
cures catarrh ot ths head and throat, but
catarrh of the stomach,- liver, kidneys,
bowels, bronchial tubes, lungs, and, In fact,
any of the organa of the human body.
It Is Indeed a dreadful case of catarrh,
wherever located, that Peruna cannot cure,
or at least greatly help. It may be pro
cured at all the drug stores and It should
be given a faithful trial by those who have
tried in vain elsewhere to get relief.
A book on catarrh and catarrhal diseases
of 64 Instructively illustrated pages will bo
sent free to any address by tbe Peruna
Medicine Co. of Columbus, O.
If you do not dsrlve prompt and satis
factory results from the use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a full
statement of your case, and he will be
pleased to give you his valuable advice

Hartman Sanitarium, Columbus, O.
