PERUNA EDITORIAL NO, 2.
In our last editorial on Peruna, after showing that this well-known family
. medicine is no longer a secro remedy, but prints on tae label of the bottle the
principal active Ingredients, we made the statement that PERUNA IS ATS
EXCELLENT CAT AEEH REMEDY.
The question now arises whether we are claiming for Pernsa more than
the foots wan ant Have we aeondant proof that Pernna is in reality a catarrh
remefij! Hare we proof of thia fact so well established that even the critics
of Pernna must admit the force of our evidence ?
Our task will be an easy one to shew what eminent authorities think
of the ingredients which oompose Pernna.
Take, for instance, the ingredient HYDRASTIS CANADENSIS, OB
G0LDZ3 SEAL. The United States Dispensatory says ef this herbal remedy.
" that it is largely employed in the treatment of depraved mucous membranes,
'- chronio rhinitis (nasal catarrh), atonio
dyspepsia (catarrh of the stomach),
chronio intestinal catarrh, catarrhal
jaundioe (catarrh of the liver , and in
diseased mucous membranes of the
pelvio organs. It is also recommended
for the treatment of various forms of
diseases peculiar to women.
Another ingredient of Pernna,
CORYDALIS FORMOSA, is classed in the United States Dispensatory as a
CEDRON SEEDS is another ingredient of Pernna, an excellent drug
that has been very largely overlooked by the medical profession for the
past fifty years. THE 8EEDS ARE TO EE FOUND IN VERY FEW DRUO
STORES. The United States Dispensatory says of the action of oedron that it
is used as a bitter tonic and in the treatment of dysentery, and in intermittent
diseases as a SUBSTITUTE FOR QUININE.
OIL OF COPAIBA, another ingredient of Pernna, is classed by the United
States Dispensatory as a mild stimulant and diuretic. It acts on the stomach
and intestinal $ract It acts as a stimulant on the geni to-urinary membranes.
Useful in chronio cystitis chronio dysentery and diarrhea, and some chronio
diseases of the liver and kidneys.
THE EMINENT AUTHORITY ON THERAPEUTICS, BARTHOLOW, in
peaking of these same ingredients of Peruna is even more enthusiastic as to
their medicinal merit
OF HYDRASTIS, HE SAYS it is applicable to stomatitis (catarrh of
the mucous surfaces of the mouth), follicular pharyngitis (catarrh of the
pharynx), chronio coryza (catarrh of
the headX. This writer classes hv
drastis as a stomachio tonic, nsef ul La
atonio dyspepsia (ohronlo gastrio ca
tarrh), catarrh of the duodenum, ca
tarrh of the gall duct, catarrh of the
intestines, catarrh of the kidneys (chronio Brighfi disease), catarrh of
the bladder, and catarrh of other pelvio organs.
BARTHOLOW REOARDS COPAIBA as an excellent remedy for chronio
catarrh ef the bladder, chronio bronchitis (catarrh of the bronchial tubes),
i BARTHOLOW STATES THAT CUBEB, an ingredient of Peruna, promotes
.' the appetite and digestion, increases the circulation of the blood. Useful in
i chronio nasal catarrh, follicular pharyngitis (catarrh of the pharynx), increas
ing the tonicity of the muoous membranes of the throat It also relieves
hoarseness. Useful in atonic dyspepsia (catarrh of the stomach), and in chronio
catarrh of the colon and rectum, catarrh of the bladder, proetatorrhea, and
atoeIo bronchial affections.
MLLLSPATJGH, MEDICINAL PLANTS, one of the most authoritative
Works on medicinal herbs in the English language, in commenting upon
COLLINSONIA CANADENSIS, says that it acts on the pneumogastrio and
Taso motor nerves. It increases the secretions of the muoous membranes in
general. . In the mountains of Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Carolina,
' eollinsonia canadensis is considered a panacea for many disorders, including
' headache, colic, cramp, dropsy and indigestion. DR. SCUDDER regards it
highly as a remedy in chronio diseases of the lungs, heart disease and asthma.
These citations ought to be sufficient to show to any candid mind that Pe
runa is a catarrh remedy. Surely, such herbal remedies, that command the
enthusiastio confidence of the highest authorities obtainable, brought together
in proper combination, ought to make a catarrh remedy of the highest efficacy.
: This is exactly what we claim for Peruna. We claim no more than the
"best authorities willingly admit It is useless for envious doctors or hostile
critics to attempt to set aside such proof
' Some ef these ingredients are not in common use. 1 Some of them are diffi
cult to obtain, and still more difficult to combine into a stable and palatable
compound. They have been, therefore, neglected by the medical profession,
largely, or remedies that are tuietXo obtain and more convenient to dispense.
-peruna is a catarrh remedy that has been In the field for many years.
OTHER CATARRH REMEDIES HAVE COME AND GONE, but the reputa
tion of Peruna has outlived them all. '
Peruna is a combination of efficient herbal remedies that wields a power
ful influence on all the mucous membranes of the body, and hence reaches
catarrh wherever it is located.
This is our claim, and we are able to substantiate thia claim by ample
quotations from the HIGHEST MEDICAL AUTHORITIES IS THE WORLD.

Foundation of Success '
E GREET with
the Pure Food
and Drufi Ael
which was passed by Con
gress on June 30, 1906, and
went into effect January 1,
1907. The people of Amer
ica are entitled to protec
tion of their health against
uuiicicuvii uiu misrepre
sentation of their food, drink and medicine, and the new law
will go a long stride in the direction of accomplishing this purpose.
The REGULATION AND CONTROL of such objectionable
and perilous conditions has been demanded for many years by
the American people, until their insistence compelled the respect
of their representatives in the National Legislature, and produced
the Pure Food and Drugs Act, so long a step in the right direc
tions. The victory was of and by the people, and the nation
should glorify in the consciousness of it.
When, eleven years ago, it becaiw our desire to furnish the Americas people)
with a mild, gentle, convenient laxative medicine for the family, palatable but
powerful, harmless but effective, we were actuated by a fundamental PURITY i
OF PURPOSE to produce a perfect product, strictly pure, clean, of vegetable'
ingredients eay to buy, easy to take and easy in action, la the form of a
dainty, fragrant little tablet, in a neat and handy little enameled box fit for purs
or vest-pocket, we produce the greatest medicine of the kind in the world, under
the motto, from its inception to this day, of "PURITY." We had no guarantee)
that our preparation, now world-famous under the name Cascarets Candy
Cathartic, would make so phenomenal a record, but we had the FAITH that with
our honest intention, our PURITY-PURPOSE, and our insistence upon perfection
achieved by great scientists, the People would learn the TRUTH, would get the)
results, aad bestow their favor oa our efforts.
We have never found it necessary to change oar methods, oar formula or
the form or quality of our product in those eleven years of its history. The salo
of Cascarets, by the favor and appreciation of the American people, has achieved
te phenomenal proportions of OVER A MILLION BOXES A MONTH, 1 2,000,
000 IN THE YEAR. This is the greatest demonstration of the success of aa
article created by Purity-Purpose, that has been recorded.
The American people have recorded their MERIT-VERDICT about CASCA
RETS CANDY CATHARTIC. They have found that this little tablet has ever
accomplished what was promised for it, that it was the purest, mildest, roost
harmless, most trustworthy medicine FOR THE BOWELS, and with faithful use
woul J eccomplish the relief of many ailments arising from disturbances in the
alimentary canaL We feel that the great CONFIDENCE of the American People
has bn deserved, and yet we feel grateful to them for this REMARKABLE
DEMONSTRATION and wish to express the HOPE that we will continue to
e;oy the confidence of the American Home hereafter as heretofore. m

JOHNSTOWN, ra.. Feb. O. The Penn
sylvania Special, the famous elghteen-hour
New Tork-Cblcaxo train of the Pennsyl
vania railroad, was wrecked at Mineral
Point, seven miles east of here, last mid
night. None of the passengers were killed
and but one probably fatally Injured. The
train crew also escaped seilous Injury.
Practically all the fifty-four ps Mergers on
the train were more or less Kurt.
The escape of the occupants of the train
from death seemed little less than miracu
lous. The train was running at the speed
of more than fifty miles an hour when th
last three cars of the train, Pullman sleep
ers, suddenly left the rails. They turned
over twice, then slid down the slgty-foot
embankment Into the Conemaugh river. The
cars went through the heavy Ice, btit there
was so little water In the river that there
was no danger of drowning. The wreck. It
Is thought, was caused by the dropping of
the brake rigging on the first sleeper fol
lowing the locomotive and combination
car. The rigging lodged under a tie, de
railing the following cars. The locomotive
and combination car remained On the truck.
Relief trains were at once dispatched frrm
Johnstown, Altoona and Pittsburg. EU.ht
Injured ones were taken to Altoona. four
more were sent to Pittsburg and sent to the
Allegheny General hospital. The other pas
sengers, with insufficient clothing-, shiver
In, many with nothing to cover them but
blankets and bed clothing, were also sent
to Pittsburg. The railroad supplied them
With food, medicine and clothing and sent
them on west on a special train which left
Pittsburg at 10 o'clock today.
Shortly after the relief psssenger train
left Mineral Point for Pittsburg a praise
service was held In the coaches. The Rev.
Dr. Edgar Cope, pastor of the St. Blineon
Protestant Episcopal church. Philadelphia,
made a short address and led In prayer.
"Let us thank God," he said, "that every
man, woman and child on that Ill-fated
train escaped death."
Train Making up Time.
At an early hour this morning this city
was practically besieged by newspaper men
on their way to the wreck. Trains were
few and to reach the scene It was necessary
to take a ten mile Journey four or more
hours around the mountains. From the
scene It was learned by telephone the train
was late going west. The engineer was
trying to make up lost time. The wreck
was caused by what Is termed by railroad
men as an unavoidable accident. The brake
rigging on the Aral Pullman following the
combination coach on the train dropped
down and tore up the right rail for a
distance of 300 yards. The engine and
combination coach did not leave-the rails,
btit the four Pullmans following ploughed
down over the embankment to the river
bank 100 feet below, overturning when
they reached the bottom.
The "elghteen-hour train" travels at a
high rate of speed coming down the moun
tain. When the brake rigging fell It either
stripped the heads off the bolts holding
the rails to the ties or tore up the rails
lfnmes of lajnred.

last night There were fifty-four passen
gers on the train, nearly all of whom were
hurt. Only one passenger, John F. Kline,
postmaster of Jollet. III., was fatally in
jured. He is In a hospital here. J
The train left this city forty-six minutes
late and was running at high speed down
the western slope of the Allegheny moun
tains, when the brake rigging on the first
car fell and derailed the train. The engine
and first car remained on the roadbed,
while the rear two cars slid down the
sixty-foot embankment Into the south fork
of the Conemaugh river, the cars falling
over on their sides and being partly sub
merged In water. The passengers were
thrown about, many of them from their
berths. Most of them escaped from the
wreck with little or no clothing.. The
telegraphic lines were torn down when the
train left the track and communication
with railroads was delayed for an , hour.
As soon as possible Superintendent Long
of the Pittsburg division sent a relief train
from Johnstown to the scene of the acci
dent carrying physicians and supplies. The
Chicago and New York special, east
bound, arrived on the scene soon after the
accident occurred and the crew and pas
sengers turned out and gave their attention
to caring for the Injured. Some of the
more seriously Injured were brought to
this city and taken to the Altoona hospital.
A few were taken to the Memorial hospital
at Johnstown, but the greater number,
whose Injuries were slight continued their
journey west on a special 'train made up
and sent out of Pittsburg to take ' the
place of the wrecked train.

serious consequences from the extreme cold
weather. The railroad officials of the Pitts
burg division made every effort to care
for the Injured.
There were only four women on the train
and only one of them escaped Injury.
Emll Paur, conductor of the Pittsburg or

lowing account of the accident
The train consisted of Atlantla tvDe of
engine and four curs. J. T. Small was the
engineer and M. W. Forbes was the con
ductor. At 11:42 o'clock last night the train
was about a mile west of "M. P." tower,
six miles from Johnstown and two miles
irom Conemaugh, when the accident hap-
Cened. One of the bolts holding up tne
rake rigging under the engine snapped,
with the result that the brake shoes were
let down on the rails. One of the brake
shoes got under one of the main driving
wheels and partly derailed the big engine.
About yards of the track was torn up,
after which the engine left the track and
dragged with It three cars. These cars

STORY OF PURCHASED TESTIMONY DENIED
Attorney Glensoa Deaoaaeea Report
that Wife Was Paid Large
Sum to Qo on Stand
NEW YORK, Feb. 2i-Evelyn Nesblt
Thaw, wife of the man who shot Stanford
White for her sake, sadly needed the three
days grace brought by the holiday, from
District Attorney Jerome's cross-examination.
This was Indicated by the appearance
of the young woman when she visited her
husband In the Tombs yesterday.' So Im
pressed was Harry Thaw himself by the
change In his wife that he embraced her
when she was brought to him yesterday
and as if to give her encouragement, ex
claimed: "My dear, brevt little wife."
Mrs. Thaw looked but a shadow of her
former self and those who have seen her
almost dally since the trial began and who
saw her yesterday said the change was al
Mrs. Thaw's face looked gaunt, hollow
and sickly. She seemed wearied and all
but worn out physically, but she tried to
mile bravely at her husband's words.
That she Is suffering under the ordeal Is
plainly apparent and some fears were ex
pressed yesterday when her appearance
was noted that she might not be able to
withstand the trying situation still before
her. Judging from the progress of Mr.
Jerome's cross-examination as so fsr de
veloped, he cannot possibly finish with the
witness under two days.
Insanity May Be Vrared.
Today reports are revived that Mr. Je
rome la nearly ready to bring on bis ap
plication for a lunacy commission to ex
amine the defendant. The district attorney,
It Is said, has questioned Drs. Deemar and
Blngaman, the Thaw family physicians who
were summoned as witnesses for Thaw and
from what he heard from them regarding
Insanity in the family of Mrs. William
Thaw he has become convinced that the
strain has decended to Thaw and that he
Is now insane. It Is pointed out that Mr.
Jerome tried to have these doctors called
before he began the examination of Mrs.
Thaw and again on Thursday, he tried to
Interrupt her cross-examination to bring
them to the stand. The defense, however.
It i stated, scented his plan and blocked
It for the time by refusing to have Mrs.
Tnaw's testimony stopped.
Jerome Is now willing to let things go
along as the defense may force them, but
ultimately, it Is said, He will bring out his
theory that Thaw Is not a sane man and
then will come the application for a com
mission. Attorney Denies Story.
Both Thaw and his wife were concerned
about a statement printed yesterday that
no matter what was the outcome of the
trial young Mrs. Thaw would receive
$300,000 as a reward for her testifying for
her husband. It was intimated that soon
after her husband's arrest she talked of
going abroad, but gave this Idea up after
It had been arranged that she was to get
She refused to say anything about the
story, but Lawyer Gleason denied It em
phatically. You can characterise that as a malicious,
cruel, ' false and Inhuman statement." he
said. "Immediately after his a nest Mrs.
Thaw said to her husband, 'I will stand by
you, Harry.' And she .has st.iod by him
and there la nothing more that a wife
could do than she hap done. That shows
just how preposterous that statement Is."
Lnnacy Commission Opposed.
Any attempt which may be made by Dis
trict Attorney Jerome to have a commis
sion In lunacy appointed to examine Harry
K. Thaw will be vigorously opposed by
Thaw's attorneys, according to an an
nouncement made today by A. Russell Pea
body. Mr. Pea body's statement was called
forth by persistently repeated rumors that
It is Mr. Jerome's Intention to apply for
such a commission as soon as he com
pletes the cross-examination of Drs. Blnga
man and Beemar, the alienists.
"If Mr. Jerome makes any such move
as that, either at the reconvening of court
Monday or later," said Mr. Pea body, who
had just left Thaw In the Tombs, "Mr.
Delmas, supported by other counsel, will
fight against It to the last ditch."
Mrs. Evelyn Thaw visited her husband
early today and remained with him the full
three hours allowed visitors. She appeared
In much better condition physically than
Mother of Thaw Makes Denial.
Regarding a statement that 1300,000 Is to
be settled upon Mrs. Harry IC Thaw by
her husband's family for the position she
has taken In the trial the following official
statement was given out today by the
prisoner's mother, through her attorneys:
"Mrs. William Thaw desires It understood
that the statement that she or any of her
family gave any money or other Induce
ments to Mrs. Evelyn Thaw for the posi
tion she has taken Is untrue, unwarranted
Attorney Hartridge said:
"Mrs. William Thaw was very angry and
provoked that a statement of that kind
should be published and wished to deny It."
Mr. Hartridge, speaking of the 'report
that District Attorney Jerome Intends to
anply for a sanity commission for a report
on Thaw's mental condition, said:
"If that suggestion came from the dis
trict attorney's office It is peculiar, to use
a mild word. Harry Thaw Is not more In
sane now than when the trial began. It
would be a peculiar thing to do now, when
they are beaten."
