An Interesting session of the city coun

that Mayor Macrae will say a few thlnga
to the aldermen. He Is not feeling at all
satisfied with the manner In which the
Idermen turned down his recommenda

the city council to In his communication
two weeks ago, but which as yet have
not received the consideration which be

Insist shall receive attention at the hands
of the aldremen Is that of providing win
ter quarters for the Indian creek dredge.
Nothing has been done In the matter and
the dredge Is still moored In the creek
near the southern limits of the city.
Mayor Macrae recommended that the
city council take the necessary steps to
compel the Burlington and Great Western
railroads to maintain gates at their Main
street crossings, and, while the aldermen
viewed the suggestion with favor, up to
date nothing has been done In the- mat
tor. Some definite decision In the matter
of replacing the electric light tower at
Broadway and First street Is looked for
tonight, as residents of that vicinity want
either the tower replaced or the lights
Referring to the manner In which some
of his recommendations had been received
by the members of the city council, Mayor
Macrae yesterday said almost destnjyed
his ambition to make a "clean street city"

measures for the betterment of the com

proved entirely inadequate and late comers
had to be disappointed. "
During the afternoon there were a num
ber of races and other sports, the prises

merchants of the city with almost profuse
liberality. In fact almost everyone who

BIG MEETING OF DAIRYMEN
Noted 8paisra 8obdnle4 to Deliver
Adsrsisei at Convention,
SOME LEGISLATION TO BE ASKED FOR
Rational Gnard to Ask the Legislature
for Lamer Appropriations for
Its Snpport lJihor Com
(From a Stsff Correspondent)
DE6 MOINES, la., Oct. 8 (Special.)
The Btate Dairy association expects to hold
the largest and best annual convention at
Cedar Rapids November 1, X and 8 that
It has ever held. The best men have been
scoured to take part on the program and
the exhibits will be the largest and best.
Jules Lumbard Pf Omaha, who has never
missed a meeting of the Iowa State Dairy
association in many years, will be present
to sing. Among the prominent speakers
secured are A. W. Trow, one of the best
authorities on butter making in the state
of Minnesota; W. J. Gillette, one of the
best authorities of Wisconsin and a breeder
of Holsteln cattle; W. B. Johnson, one of
the best practicaLymttermakers In Iowa.
Profs. Curtlss, McKay and Larson of the
State agricultural college will be present
besides the state dairy commissioner and
his assistants and other prominent speakers
on dairy topics. Prof. C. D. Smith of the
agricultural' college of Michigan will also
be present to deliver an address.
It Is more than likely that in drafting
the pure food bill which will be Introduced
Into the next legislature provision will be
made for compelling creameries to place
on the outside of the package of butter
the exact state of the cream from which
It was made. It Is claimed that the ruinous
warfare which the creameries of the state
have been carrying on has caused them to
take all kinds of cream. In fact every
thing that is brought to them, and pay
the same price as though it was good. It
Is claimed that when the milk trains bring
the milk to the centralization planta many
of the cans are discovered to be spoiled
and fermented so that it Is impossible to
make good butter from the cream. Officials
of the dairy commissioner's office claim this
Is due to the failure of the farmers to
keep their separators cleanly. All of this
Is thrown back onto the creamery for It
Is claimed that If the creameries refused
to buy the spoiled cream the farmers would
wash their separators. For this reason
It Is proposed to force them to place on
the butter the condition of the cream be
lieving that this will lead to making butter
from nothing but good cream.
No Inspection of Gypsnm.
The report of Mine Inspector Ed 8weeney
and State Labor Commissioner E. D. Brig
ham on the condition of the gypsnm mines
of the state has been placed In the hands
of the governor for transmission to the
legislature. As the report Is to the legis
lature It will not be made pubtlo till the
legislature meets, but It is learned that the
report Is not favorable to state Inspection
of the gypsurri mines. It is claimed that
they are different In every way to coal
mines and that furthermore the operators
are already using every precaution and
are making double entries wherever neces
sary. Cities Want the Factory.

Inspect Iowa's Cheese.
It is learned that the government haa ar
ranged to send to this state this winter
a man instructed to investigate the ques
tion of why Iowa does not make more and
better cheese. It Is the claim of the cheese
men of the state that there is needed an
abundance of good mountain or spring
water. Iowa does not have these luxuries.
It is pointed out that we have no means
on the farms of keeping the m'.lk at an
even low temperature, which Is claimed
to account for the variance.
State Gnard Wants Money.

Men Try to Seise the
VICTORIA. B. C. Oct. 8. The steamer
Tartar, which arrived yesterday, brought
news from Japan that the story current
thst the disaster to the battleship Mikasa
at Basebo was occasioned as a result of a
mutiny on board, because of the resent
ment by the crew of the peace terms.
Robert W. Collins, who represented the
Associated Presa with Kurokl'a army
throughout the campaign, was a passenger
on the Tartar, bound for Washington, and
said the story was given some credence In
diplomatic circles In Japan. Mr. Collins
said the report was that the men had
mutinied to seize the ship, when some offi
cers fired the magazine. Soon after the

Paris Paper Points Ont Reasons Why

PARIS, Oct. 8. The necessity for main

orously urged In the course of a leading
article In the semi-official Temps, which
points out that the public opinion of both
countries is In favor of continuing the
alliance. The article adds that the ac
cords with Italy and Great Britain served
to allay annoying misunderstandings; that
both were the natural outoome of events
and that France ought categorically to
refuse to renounce them. The Temps,
however, does not favor an Anglo-French
alliance, which, It says, would be useful
to Great Britain, but compromising to
France and would probably create trouble

VICTORIA, B. C, Oct. 8.-The steamer
Tartar, which arrived last night from tho
orient, brought news from Shanghai that
the loss of life among natives of the
Islands at the mouth of the Yantftse river
as a result of the typhoon at tho beginning
of September was tremendous. The North
China Dally News of Shanghai says: "To
the east of Tamngming two Islands, one
called Tawoshaw, the other Shlhousha,
distant about twenty miles from Woosung,
have suffered much from the typhoon,
nearly all ' the Inhabitants having been
swept away. The iRlanda have only been
Inhabited for a short time, comparatively
speaking as they arc of recent formation
and are not much above the high water
mark. It la reported that nearly l,0u0 peo
ple have been drowned on those Inlands
and the smaller islands adjacent. Tamag-
mlng Itself haa not suffered much, being
well above the high water mark."
The Shanghai paper Bays that the dam
age to the Canadian Pacific liner Empress
of Japan by the typhoon will necesnltate
the expenditure of 8100,000 for repairs.
During the storm the steamer Pechill,
formerly the Rio de Grande du 8ol, foun
dered near the mouth of the Tangtse. Its
crew of fifty-four was saved by tho German
steamer Albenga, whose officers and crew

Girlhood, Womanhood, Motherhood.
The first lesson that the young Rirl
has of womanhood is usually a painful
one. She learns to know what head
ache means, and backache, and some
times ia sadly borne down by this new
experience oi life.
All the pain and misery which young
girls commonly experience at such a
time may, in almost every instance, be
entirely prevented or cured by the use
of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
It establishes regularity. It tones up
the general health, and cures headache,
backache, nervousness, chorea, or St.
Vitus's dance, and other consequences
of womanly weakness or disease.
MOTHER Or THE FAMILY.
The anxious mother of the family
oftentimes carries the whole burden of
responsibility so far as the home med
ication of common ailments of the girls
or boys are concerned. The cost of the
doctor's visits are very often much too
great. At such times the mother is
invited to write to Dr. R. V. Pierce, of
Buffalo, N. Y., for medical advice,
which is given free. Correspondence is
held sacredly confidential.

A MOTHEE'8 LOVE.
A mother's love is so divine that the
roughest man cannot help but appre
ciate it as the crown of womanhood.

forward to with feelings of great dread
by most women. At sucti time a
woman is nervous, dyspeptic, irritable,
i and she is in neod of a uterine tonic
and nervine, a strength builder to fit
her for the ordeal. No matter how
healthy or strong a woman may be she
cannot but be benefited by taking Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription to prepare
for the event. It makes childbirth easy
and often almost painless.

HOW TO LOOK BEAUTIFUL.
Young women or matrons should not
allow themselves to look sallow and
wrinkled because of those pains and
weaknesses which become chronic and
are the result of colds, tight lacing, and
the imprudent care of the womanly t ys
tern. Many a woman would look beau
tiful, have healthy color and bright eyes
if it were not for those drains on Ler
strength and those weaknesses which
come all too frequently and make her
life miserable. There is a ready-to-use

Dr. R. V. Pierce in his large practice s
