Again on Murder Charge.
COST OF PROSECUTION HAS BEEN HEAVY
Pella People In Earnest About Bnlld-

nect with Other
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, April lO.WSpeclal.) At
the term of district court in barren county
soon to be called It is expected that ths
case of the State against Mrs. Margaret
Hossack will be dismissed and stricken
from the docket. She was at one time III
the penitentiary serving a life sentence
for the alleged murder of her husband,
John Hossack, but the supreme court
granted her a new trial. The first trial was
In the rjunty where the man waa found
dead. The second was in Msdlson county
and the cost of the trial In an adjoining
county was enormous. Ths Jury disagreed.
Mrs. Hossack is out on bail and living
with relatives. But the Board of Super
visors of Warren county, after paying bills
on sccount of the second trial in Madison
county amounting to $6,000, passed a reso
lution directing that no further assistance
be employed to prosecute the case and
expressing the wish that the county at
torney of Madison county dismiss the case
without further cost to the county. Inas
much as Mr. Cooper the county attorney
of Madison county, has charge of the case
only Incidentally, and It would be futile for
him to attempt to secure a verdict alone
and unaided, the case will be dismissed.
The total cost of the case to Warren
county has been over $10,000. Mrs. Hos
sack has also expended a large sum In
defense of herself. The case will there
fore be stricken from the docket solely to
prevent further expense to the county. Mrs.
Hossack Is now old and probably would
not live long In the penitentiary and the
belief Is general thst a third trial would
result much like the second.
Pella After a Railroad.
A committee of business men of Pella
Is to start out this week to make a
thorough canvass of ths city and the farm
ers of that part of Marlon county In the
Interest of the proposed new railroad from
Pella to Howell or Harvey to make con
nection with the Wabash and Burlington
lines. The Pella people feel sure that the
short line will now be built. The company
organized to build the road Is amply able
to finance It and get It started. An agree
ment has been reached aa to th,e sale of
the bonds snd other details have been ar
ranged. The experience of the people of
Manchester in building a similar line Is
referred to by the Pella people. The short
line from Manchester to Oneida, which Is
owned by Manchester people Is a success
snd a profitable enterprise.

Dedicate New Bridge.
HOT SPRINGS, S. D.. April 19. (Sps-
cisl.) Ths new Iron bridge across the Chey
enne river at the mouth of Fall river was
completed today and was opened for public
travel. Ever since the settlement of this
county the fording of the Cheyenne river
has at aoms seasons of ths year been a
serious problem. Like the Missouri, nobody
could tell when the Cheyenne might be
out of Its banks snd its chsnnels changing,
so that it was often a dangeroua proposi
tion to attempt to cross. Ranchers from
the other side of the river were frequently
left stranded on the wrong side of the
stream and had to wait tor the flood to
subside before they could return to their
homes. The completion of the new bridge
Is therefore an event of more than ordinary
importance to the people of Fall River
county and they consequently gathered
there today In numbers to dedlcats ths
bridge to the publlQ.

that town between the Peavey Elevator
company on the one aide and the merchants
of the town on the other. It appears that
some ot the farmers in Hartford's terri
tory hsvs been hauling grain to Dell Rap
Ids, where. It Is alleged, they received
better prices than were offered 'at Hart
ford. The business men of Hartford seem
to blame the Teavey Elevator company for
this condition ot affairs because It did
not pay high enough prices to hold the
trade for Hartford. 8ome of the merchants
subscribed for stock in an Independent
elevator. This angered the Peavey people
and In retaliation they have announced
their Intention to add a line of general
merchandise snd enter Into competition
with the merchants of the town. As a
starter a carload of sugar wss recently
purchased by the elevator company snd
disposed of at prices which were below cost.
At present the elevator company It

warehouse, but It is understood a building
will be erected, when a full line of gen
eral merchandise will be put In and sold at
the lowest possible prices.
After Tax Shirkers.
ETURQIS. S. D., April 19. (Special.)
The commissioners of Meade county passed
a resolution concerning personal tax mat
ters, that Is radical enough to suit any
body. In order to afford each taxpayer
an opportunity to make complaint against
any other taxpayer for failure to list per
sonal property for taxation, or for listing
the same at less than actual value, the
board has ordered the publication In July
next of the 1903 assessment of personal
property, such ss live stock, goods snd i
merchandise, moneys and credits, as listed j
by each taxpayer In Meade county for said 1
year. The board also will raise all assess
ments which are known or deemed to be
unjust to the county, and gives notice that
all attempts on the part of taxpayers ti !

to the fullest extent of the law.

NATURE BEST GUIDE TO
DEVELOPMENT OF SYSTEM
(from tht Philadelphia
Ever since I Introduced my system
I have been overwhelmed with corre
spondence, a great part of which is
devoted to the question of diet. To
my mind, one of the most objection
able people on the face of the earth
Is the faddist, and I am certainly no
faddist. I believe that Nature is the
best gu'de as to what we should eat
and drink; and provided that we do
not eat or drink too much, I think one
cannot go far vrong- in taking those
things which a healthy appetite and
a natural Inclination suggest. Tha
danger lies not ro much In the quality
as in the quantity of the food and
the manner of taking-. I would rather
cat six times a day a little at a
time than live on two heavy meals.
The general opinion of the medical
profession lit that there Is too much
;.teat eaten In England, and I am
informed that a similar state of af
fairs exists In Australia. My own

The Best Office Building
Moving is not pleasant to think about
except when the prospect of a handsome
office is in prospect. You have to get up
a certain amount of steam to move, even
when you are driven to desperation by

business. Besides this the rents are no
higher than in other buildings.

opinion is that the amount of food
consumed by the average person is
considerably in excess of the amount
required. If the quantity of food '
taken were smaller, the substance
lighter, and the mastication more
thorough, the labor of the excretory
organs would be less, and the general
health much better.
The question of alcohol la one which
seems to trouble a great many of my
correspondents, and is the subject of
many anxious inquiries. Now, I my
self am not a' total abstainer. In
moderation I believe alcohol Is a
valuable food; but, of course, one
cannot but shrink from the enormous
drink traffic of civilization. Let me
say, then, that alcohol la not neces
sary to the upbuilding' of the mus
cular system, but if taken In strict
moderation can do little or no harm.
In the same way, tobacco In excess
Is bad. Hut a man who Is a follower
of physical culture need not fear an
occasional pipe or cigar. Coming
more particularly to the strengthen
ing quality of foods, those articles
which contain the most albumen are,
of course, the most nourishing. Milk,
cheese, and eggs contain large per
centages of albumen; but the atom
ach cannot deal with more than a
limited quantity of these foodj 'with
out being upset. Of recent years,
however, a method of extracting; al
bumen from milk or rather from
buttermilk has "been discovered.- and '
the extract haa been put on the mar
ket- under the nams of "Plasmon.".
This plasmon was discovered by an
enterprising1 German chemist, snd Its
use Is spreading all over England and
the Continent; In fact, all over the
world, for I have Been It on sale In'
America and Australia. It Is used
medicinally as an article of diet.
Doctors who are about to perform
operations give their patients plas
rr.on Instead of drugs before the
operations, as the bulk Is very small
and the waste practically nil.
As to its sustaining qualities I can
bear personal testimony. I lived en
tirely on It for seven weeks, taking
about eight teaspoonfuls a day, dis
solved In water, this being my only
food during that period, and I was
performing twice a day. It Is pre
pared In various ways, being free
from flavor and smell, and perfectly
Boluble. It can be dissolved In water
and made Into soup, or added to other
soups or gravies, or may be kept on
the table and added dry. It can be
dissolved In milk, and then added to
tea or coffee, and is now, I believe,
made up In chocolate bars, beef ex
tract, biscuits, and bread. Whenever
I travel I carry some with me.
