(barge of Slaters of Mercy is
Delayed Intll May '
The Bisters of Mercy in charge of St.
Bernard's hospital celebrated yesterday the
fifteenth anniversary of the founding of
their work in Council Bluffs by formally
opening the large addition to the St. Mary's
home for Toung women, with a general
reception for the public at the home, which
Is located on Harmony street. The recep
tion was largely attended, and from 2 to 6
o'clock yesterday afternoon the bands-ime
building, which furnishes a home In every
sense of the word for over thirty young
women, was visited and Inspected by hun
dreds of people, among the number being
many friends of the management from
Rev. Mother Vincent and Rev. Mother
Magdalen were assisted in receiving the
visitors by Mrs. J. J. Brown and other mem
bers of the St. Mary's Mercy circles of St.
Francis Xavler's and St. Peter's churches.
The young student nurses from St. Ber
nard's hospital also assisted In showing the
visitors over the home.
Following the invocation of the Blessing
of Heaven on the home by Rev. Father
Smyth, assisted by Rev. Fathers Burke, Fel-
ley and McDonald, a musical program was
given from 3 to 4 o'clock under the direc
tion of Mrs. Margaret Dillon, assisted by
Miss Hammer, Mr. Clark and Roy Peter
son. Change Original Intention.
It had been the original intention of the
sisters In charge ot St. Bernard's hospital
to have celebrated their fifteenth anniver
sary by the opening ot the new Mercy hos
pital, which Is to be devoted entirely to
sick and surgical cases, while St. Bernard's
will be retained for the care of nervous dis
ease and insane patients. While the new
hospital Is practically completed, the equip
ment and Interior finishing Is not, and the
sisters decided to postpone the formal
opening of it to May 24 ot next year, which
will be the fifteenth anniversary of the oc
cupation of the St. Bernard's property by
The St. Mary's home for Young women
was established one year ago In a large and
well-equipped residence which the slaters
purchased from Oeorge R. Wheeler. At that
t!m it was thought the hnm would he) of
sufficient size for several years to come,
but the success of the Institution from the
start was so remarkable that early in the
summer it was evident that a large addition
would have to be built to accommodate the
young women anxloua to make their home
The new addition increases the number
of bedrooms to twenty-five on the first
floor and fifteen on the second. In the bed
rooms are thirty-five single beds, many of
the young women rooming together, while
those so desiring can have Individual rooms.
According to present plans, the nursoa at

quarters at the home, and the addition
makes It possible to provide accommoda
tion for transient guests.
The building Is now complete in every
detail. The front of the first floor Is occu
pied by the entrance hallway and three
handsome parlors provided for the young
women. In one is a handsome nlano do
nated by the sisters, and the nucleus of a
house library has been well started. The
dining room is located in the semi-basement
of the addition, and Is reached by an
ornate stairway of two flights. It Is well
lighted, as in fact all the rooms are, and
is convenient to tho thoroughly equipped
In the rear wing ot the building on the
first floor Is a large room which will be
occupied by the industrial and sewing school
ot the Institution, which will be developed

SWEET APPEARS TO BE THE FAVORITE
Nominee of All Parties Mn In Filing;
Nomination Paper and Time
I Mow Almost Ki
lt I red.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. Sept. 24. ( Special.) A
number of republicans have gone from this
part of the state to Hampton to attend the
convention of the republicans of the Third
district. The convention meets tomorrow
morning. Latest word from there is to the
effect that all the delegates sre on hand,
or nearly all of them, and that where there
are absentees their proxies have all been
placed. The demand for proxies In the con
vention has been great. There are several
candidates who are in dead eat nest, and
their friends will leave nothing undone to
land the nomination for them. The most
active of the candldatea are Representative
Burton E. Sweet of Bremer, Charles E. Al
brook ot Hardin and C. E. Ransler of Bu
chanan. Tonight the indications are that
Sweet will be .very strong in the race, and
it will be between him and "Ransler. The
candidacy of Albrook has been materially
injured by bringing up accusations against
him In connection with tax ferret troubles
In Hardin county. His firm ot attorneys
had entered Into a contract for a fee for
collecting taxes after the tax ferrets bad
made the assessments, and there was such
a scandal following that several county offi
cials were driven from "public life, seversl
Indictments were returned and a heavy
judgment given for return of money to the
county. This la regarded as making It Im
possible for Albrook to be the nominee.
The claim Is being strongly made now
that Sweet will have the support ot the
Dubuque delegation, and if this Is true he
is most likely to land the priie. Several
others who are still being considered are
Secator Harrlman end Judge Evans of
Franklin county. Judge E. P. Seeds of Dela
ware county, Judge Blrdsall of Wright
county and Senator Courtrtght of Black
hawk county. There are 114 delegates to
the convention. There Is not now any talk
of renominatlon of Speaker Henderson, but
the convention will pass resolutions highly
eulogistic ot the speaker and expressing re
gret that he should have declined the nomi
nation. The convention Is wholly In the
hands of Henderson's friends and what Is
done will be with the approval of bis best
It was announced tonight that Senator
W. B. Harrlman of Hampton Is definitely

Edwards of Butler county i also definitely

Hegjreta from the President.
General regret was expressed today over
the change in the program with regard to

pressed that as soon as the president is
able to travel he will make new dates for
his Journey into the western states. Gov
ernor Cummins received the following tele

Examining Assessment Method.
George Pottle of Lewlston, Me., a mem
ber ot the state board of assessors of
Maine, Is engaged In making a brief In
vestigation ot the assessment and taxing
system of Iowa. He is working under a
special act of the Maine legislature passed
last winter, directing the board of asses
sors to make biennially an Investigation of
the taxing systems In other states and to
make recommendations for tho improve
ment of the system In Maine. Mr. Pottle
bai visited Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois
nd sorje other states, and the results of
his observations will be published as a
part cf the report made by the board of as
sessors to the Maine legislature. The plan
lc to continue this Investigation from year
to year and thus secure a great Improve
ment of the assessment system of the state.
Several important change have been made
in recent years in the taxing methods in
Maine, and the corporation and franchise
taxes have teen greatly Increased.

Bonaparte Dam Case.
The attorney general plans to commence
action very soon in the legal proceeding!
to establish the right of the state of Iowa
to build a flahway over the dam In the Des
Moines river at Bonaparte. The legislature
passed a law which require the attorney
general to commence proceedings for con
demnation over the dam. This will force
the matter Into the court again, and it is
understood that the Meeks, owners of the
dam. will again make a fight to resist the
right of the state to give the fish a chance
to get up the river. Announcement was
trade some time ago that one of the Meeks
would be a candidate for the legislature,
which Indicates that the effort to get the
stste to psy a large sum of money for the
dam may be renewed again. Another re
cent project Is to utilize the power ot the
dam for ruanlng an electric tnterurbaa line

Close of Conference.
The conference of hesds of state institu
tions came to a close at noon today. Th?
matter of chief discussion and greatest In
terest at the conference was the question
of what to do with undesirable employes
at state Institutions. It appears that
there are persons who are chronic mischief
maker and wherever they go, no matter to
what kind of a state institution, they causa
trouble. The paper read by Superintendent
Fitzgerald and prepared by Dr. Wltte of
Clarlnda dealt with the subject In a free
manner, and recommended virtually that
there should be a general exchange of In
formation among superintendents for their
mutual protection against undesirable em
ployes and servants. In the discussion this
morning the superintendents related their
various experiences in this line and ap
proved of what Dr. Wltte had said. A
paper on engineering was read by Clayton
Durham of the Soldiers home and a paper
on winter dairying at Institutions by Su
perjntendent Class of the Orphans' home.
A paper by Mrs. Hlllls on juvenile courts
was well received by the conference. Thu
progrsm for the next conference was ar
ranged, with the paper by Superintendent
Rothert on "Compulsory Education" to be
given, also a paper by Dr. Marlon H.
Pugh on "The Relation of Physical De
fects to Mental Development." a paper by
Chairman Cownle on "Insurance of State

No. 212 Twenty-first
March 13, 1302.
For three years after my mar
riace I felt peculiar bearing-down
pains such as 1 had never expe
rienced before. I tried different
remedies but found it was only
money wasted. 1 then consulted
a physician wao treated me for
two months and then said my
Ovaries vei6 diseased &lid t'.f.t 1
would never get well unless 1 had
an operation. I knew that would
mean that I would never have a
child and I dreaded the ordeal.
I changed physicians but found
this did not help me any, and I
fki in despair.
My sister-in-law then visited
me, and when I told her of my
trouble she said: "If yog had
used common sense and Wine of
C'ardui you would not .have been
in such a plight." She had used
it in her own home and it had
carried her through three times
when she had children. 1 sent
for some at once and took it faith
fully atil now find to mygreat joy
that it was all she claimed for it.
New strength and with it new
hope came back to me and it seemed as if every dose gave ine new life.
Within three months I was changed from a dragged out mortal weary
of life to a hearty, healthy woman full of ambition and life. No opera
tion was needed and letter than all 1 became the mother of a little girl,
the pride and joy of the household. I have bad two other children
since without a particle of trouble. 1 am well and never take any medi
cine but Wine of Cardui. I only write that other poor sick women could
know of this life-giving medicine and would take it without spending
time and money on doctors, who don't cure.
WINE OF CARDUI, the simple
remedy which Mrs. Grosvenor
advises you to take has trans
formed her from a sick, discouraged
woman to the bright, happy, healthy
person vou see in this portrait. In
stead ot languishing on a bed of siuk
ness Mrs. Grosvenor is now equipped
" for any duty of womanhood. There
are some chronic cases which no
medicine can cure but nineteen out
of every twenty sufferers today may
have the health Mrs. Grosvenor has
if they will only take the Wine of
Cardui treatment as Mrs. Grosvenor
took it. This vegetable Wine regu
lates the menstrual flow, making
this important function both health
ful and painless. The bearing-down
pains which make life a torture stop
when Wine of Cardui is used and
