this year by Henry Kaup of Cuming county
for $l.Sot. Mr. Fisher was not present, but
a letter from him was read In which he
offered to appear before the committee
after March 7. He la now in Rapid City
on business. In the letter he declared he
had documents which would justify his
position and he declared the agitation at
present U for political effect.
Halleck F. Rose appeared for Mr. Fisher,
and his brother, Deputy Attorney General
W. B. Rose, appeared for the state.
The claim Is for the value of a section
of land In Sloug county formerly owned
by Herman Qoedde. At his death It
escheated to the state became he bad no
heirs living In this country. The land was
appraised at $1,600, which constituted a
valid claim against the state, but when
the claim was presented to the legislature
It was first for $8,000 and later for $11,600.
Mr. Fisher did not present a claim this
year, but in his letter said he had a war
ranty deed for the land and an assign
ment of the claim from the heirs In Ger
many. The deed Is In his wife's name.
Documents Taken and Retaraed.
The story of the disappearance of the
original appraisement from the office of
the district clerk of Bloux county and its
return later with the amount of the ap
praisement changed to $11,B00 has already
been published and was recounted tonight
by W. J. A. Raum. district clerk of Sioux
county and at that time one of the ap
praisers, and John Serres, another ap
praiser. Both testified the original amount
of the appraisement was $1,600 and the
original document showing the Insertion
of the figure "1" between the 1 and 5 was
exhibited. The discrepancy was first
noticed by E. F. Pontius, present district
clerk, when he made a certified copy of It.
Henry Kaup, a distant relative of the
German heirs who claims to represent
thorn, was on the stand for some time. He
said he gave Fisher a power of attorney
through J. H. Llndale of West Point, with
the understanding Fisher was to have all
he could get out of the state above $1,600.
He said he had no understanding the
former claims were to be for more than
$1,500, the appraised value of the land. He
was surprised when he learned of the large
amounts claimed by Fisher. He exhibited
a letter from Fisher dated January S in
which Fisher said he had a warranty deed
"to a lady he represented" and an assign
ment of the claim from the heirs In Ger
many. He also said he had power of at
torney direct from them which superseded
any authority Kaup might have from them.
He warned Kaup not to "meddle" and told
him If he filed any documents or made pub
lic anything which would cloud the title
he would resort to a damage suit and
appeal to the libel law. Kaup then changed
his attorneys and ' went to Mayor Fred
Hunter of West Point, who now represents
him. Kaup showed letters from the heirs
In Germany' dnted aa late as September,

Facts About Why Coffee Does Its Peculiar Work
' Tanin (or Tanlc Acid) la an astringent, used for gargles In sore throat and similar conditions; It Is not poisonous
although it is not a fit substance to take into the stomach as 1,8 done when you drink coffee or tea that has boiled too
, It is a serious error to say that .Tanin is the cause of the coffee habit, with Its long train of ails. It is the alka
loid, Caffeine, which causes the trouble, it being quickly dissolved out in making hot coffee, while it takes longer boll
lng to dissolve out the Tanln.
Caffeine, like cocoalne, morphine, etc., is a drug and should neves, be used except as prescribed by a physician.
Like all such drugs, small amounts seem to delude one Into the belief that they are beneficial, while their con
tinued use, in gradually Increased amounts, is destructive to mind and body.
A prominent physician and teacher in a medical university says:
"Coffee intoxication is a disease which is probably more common than is generally supposed, the profession not
being alive to its symptoms, as It has not as yet penetrated into the medical text books on different diseases."
' The action of "Caffeine," however, is well described in a prominent work on drugs, as follows: "It causes pois
onous symptoms, ringing in the ears, tremor of the hands, headache, flashes, vertigo, Insomnia, mental confusion,
weakness of vision and bearing, palpitation of the heart, rapid pulse, irregular heart action, a sense of oppression in
the chest," and other symptoms.
The physician referred to above says further: "The most pronounced and tenacious symptom of coffee Intoxi
cation is tremor (one of the above symptoms of caffeine poisoning) of the hands and limbs. Continuous headaches,
with intermittent attacks of great severity; hallucinations, mostly occurring at night, ringing in the ears, sometimes
taking U.'tn of definite words, but usually as buzzing or bells; troubles of vision occur, pupils dilated, eyes easily fa
tigued; vertigo occurs, often of reat severity, mostly due to digestive troubles; Insomnia is present in acute cases. Di
gestive disturbances are a marked symptom of coffee poisoning; at times tahere is a definite pyrosis (heart burn.)
The loaa of appetite and digestive disturbances produce emaciation, the complexion Is pale, often yellow; the pallor of
the face, the bright eye. the nervous look and dilated pupil give a picture of the disease coffee habit."
By comparing these symptoms described by ono physician with the action of Caffeine as described by another, the
reader can get at the facta as to what coffee does, and what it is in coffee that does it. It's principally Caffeine, rathei
