ADMIRAL'S WORDS CARRY WEIGHT.
REAR-ADMIRAL HICHBORN Is one of the best known
admirals of our nary.
Hla statement concerning Peruna will have much
weight as it goes out into the world.
What he says Is echoed by many other naval officers
of high standing.
WHAT TI1K ADMIRAL SAYS.
Philip Hlchborn. Rear-Admiral United States Navy,
writes from Washington, D. C, as follows:
"After the use of rerun for a short period. I ran
now cheerfully recommend your valuable remedy to
any one who Is in need of an Invigorating tonic"
AX EVKRPRKSEXT FOE.
The soldier and the sailor are especially subject to
catarrh in some form or phase.
Exposed as they are to constant changes, subject as
they are to various vicissitudes, and all kinds of climate,
wet and dry, night and day, they find catarrh to be their
most insidious and everpresent foe.
In the barracks and on the field, Peruna is equally
Taken In time, it will absolutely prevent catching cold.
PE-RU-NA A POSITIVE REMEDY.
After a cold has become established, Peruna will break
it up quicker than an: ther remedy known to man.
Even after a eold has become settled In some organ of
the body Peruna can be relied upon to promptly dispel It.
Peruna will cure catarrh, whether acute or chronic,
but a few doses taken in the first stages of the disease
will be more effective than when the disease has become
If you suffer from catarrh in any form do not neglect
it. Take Peruna at once. Delays in such matters are
CHRONIC CATARRH OF THROAT.
"I was troubled with catarrh of the throat particularly,
and suffered considerably as a result thereof for a period of
about five years, and my general health was affected.
SOUGHT CHANGE OF CLIMATE.
"Three years ago I was forced to give up business, and
took up my residence in the western country, looking for
relief in a change of climate as well as a change in the
method of treatment for my ailment.
CURED HY PE-RU-NA.
"After much expense, both here and in the West, I was
Induced by a friend to try Peruna. 1 continued the use of
it for about five weeks, at the end of which time I returned
to New York, both well and happy." Wm. H. Switzer, 325
E. 33rd street. New York City.
USED PE-RU-XA IX HIS FAMILY.
"I have used Peruna in my family with very satisfactory
results for the last two years. Besides I have recommended
it to all whom I think are In need of it.
"I urge all who are afflicted to buy a bottle and begin Its
use at once. I have never heard of any who have used it to
be dissatisfied with the results." Frank W. Harris, box 23,
Basic City, Va., member A. F. & A. M.
A TYPICAL TESTIMONIAL.
Mr. J. H. Galbralth, 390 West Second Ave., Columbus,
"I have been a sufferer of catarrh of the stomach and
kidneys for seven years. Doctors did me no good, and after
taking Peruna for six months, at Intervals, I believe I am
cured. My appetite returned, I sleep well and work every
day. I always have It in the house."
No remedy ever yet devised has received such unstinted
eulogy from so many renowned statesmen and military men
We have on file thousands of testimonials like those given
above. We can give our readers only a glimpse of the vast
array of endorsements Dr. Hartman is receiving.

secure them for Investment and to that fact
the Increase o more than $300,000 In the
school funds' holdings since December 1
Is charged to a certain extent.
One of the reasons assigned for the fail
ure of the debt to decrease Is the fact that
the Burlington and Union Pacific railways
are withholding conRlderable amounts of
taxes In various counties, pending the de
termination of the suits which are now
before the federal court. The receipts
from all sources will be very light until
the first of the year, when the county
treasurers will begin to make heavy re
mittances or. account of the personal taxes,
which are delinquent December 1. In the
meantime the expenses of the state gov
ernment continue and the state debt will
Increase slightly. However, It Is believed
that the revenue, with the 1 mill special
levy under the Sheldon act, will rapidly
reduce the debt after the first of the year.
Jrane Mrllor's Case.
Today In the supreme court the man
damus case of W. R. Mellor of bherman
county against the county clerk to pre
vent the blanket de:mase In real tate
assessments was submitted. This Is the
case Involving the interpretation of the
amendment to the revenue law adopted
by the last legislature , providing for
changes In the assessments of realty
where the existing figures are unjust. The
county board of Sherman county rtluced
the realty In four townships and Mellor,
who Is the chal-man of tl o State Board
of Agriculture and prominent politically,
with the tacit consent and approval of
the members of the State Board of Equali
satlqn and Assessment, filed an original
mandamus action in the supremo court to
compel a restoration of tho original fig
ures. Can't Appeal from Levy.
Today a brief was filed In the supreme
court by the county convnlsHloners of Lan
caster county In whHh It 1 contemltd that
C. O. Whedon of this city had no If sal
basis for his appeal from the levy of 1004.
It la contended that he was reduced to
two causes of complaint, an appeal from
the amount of the assessment on his pr p
erty, or an appeal o-i tho grout 1 of ron
Uablllty to assessmiTit, but that under
no circumstances can tho discretion of the
county board In making the levy
be questioned, as long as Tliey kejp vlrliln
the fifteen mill limit fixed by the' laws.
Whedon filed an appeal from the levy, al
leging that It was excessive and charging
gross extravagance against county officers.

Another event of the evening was a mu

sion yesterday afternoon at St. Pauls
Mrs. Sarah Piatt Decker of Denver,
president of the General Federation of
Women's Clubs, arrived yesterday after
noon and will be the guest of the con
vention during the entire session.
The prediction that there would be no
real Issue at this meeting promises to prove
untrue, as the directory at a preliminary
meeting passed a proposition which will be
presented to the convention providing for
an amendment to the constitution which
will make future state meetings biennial
Instead of annual. As this plan has been
strongly opposed In the past. It will hardly
be carried without a struggle.
The directory further recommended that
district vice presidents be made district
presidents and admitted to the -Hrectoryi
also that adjacent districts combine their
annual conventions when possible and bear
their own expenses.

H. M. Bushnell of Lincoln, Included sug
gestions along the broad lines of women's
work. "The federation Idea is drawing
woman to women, that they may aid each
other," she said, and It was of mutual
helpfulness that she spoke.
That hats should be removed was the first
recommendation of the committee on rules
ahd It went Into effect . Immediately. The
appointment of a ' resolutions committee
was also recommended aS a precaution
against the Introduction of undesirable or
unwise discussion In the convention.

In the Second district.
Mrs. C. E. Nevin presided during a
library session. Miss Edith Bullock, secre

Forty years ago. Dr. Pierce searched
Katurt's Uibnmlory tot a remedy with
which to supplant the Ignorant and vi

too commonly prescribed and advised for
woman's peculiar ailments.

extracted and preserved by the use of

most potent in making weak women
strong and sick women well. It contains
