frr. Hartmaa U cow offering1 Fernna to the publio m a regular pharmaceu
tical prod act It la just aa ethical at any compound put up for the medical
profession. No straining; of medical ethics can find any fault with it THE
PRINCIPAL ACTIVE INGREDIENTS are prominently incorporated in the
label on the bottle, that the people may know that the claims made for Peruna
have a true justification..'
The only departure we shall make from medical ethics in the conduct of
Ptruna affairs in the future, is the fact that we shall continue to advertise and
ell our product TO THE PEOPLE.
If we would agree to sell to doctors only, to advertise for doctors only,
then the medical fraternity would be obliged to recognize Peruna aa being
entirely within their approval.
We shall continue to offer Peruna to the people. We shall continue to
convey to the people our claims for Peruna aa a household remedy. We shall
continue to supply the people with free literature, teaching them how to use
our medicine, teaching them how to avoid disease, teaching them many things
of benefit to the home. We shall continue to do this, whether the medical
profession like it or not
We are proposing from this time on to take the publio into our confidence.
Notwithstanding that some imitators and aubstitutors will be attempting to
put up something which they consider just aa good aa Peruna, we are going to
draw aside the veil of secrecy and allow any one who chooses to know exactly
This ought to disarm all honest criticism. We expect however, that crit
icism will continue. On some pretext or other those who are envioua of the
People Who Object to

Now Secure Peruna
in foreign lands until the people of all the world are supplied with this valu
able household remedy,

it to us. We will add no words, take away no words. If you wish us to we will
publish your portrait in connection with it We will not do this without your
Written request without your entire conaent
Peruna ha benefited thousands of people afflicted with ohronio catarrh,
in many phases and locations. At least that is what the people say to us,
through unsolicited testimonials. Many thousand more will reap benefit from
Peruna in spite of fabricated slanders to the contrary.
We have taken great pains that every testimonial we use should be abso
lutely true, in the exact language of the testifier.
We have taken great pains that every photograph published should be
the photograph of the person whose name it bears, that every word of every
testimonial should be authorised by the hand that signed it
We are determined to beat our opponents by being fairer than they are,
by dealing squarer than they dare to. We are determined to meet falsehood
t". with truth, duplicity with candor, insincerity with sincerity.
We know that the users of Peruna wiU appreciate our stand. We believe
that the dealers in Peruna will applaud our course. We expect even our op-
E orients will be obliged to acknowledge finally that Peruna is not only an
onest and useful remedy, but one of the GREATEST HOUSEHOLD MEDI

WILIAMSTOuN, Ky.. Jan. .-Miss Ethel
Ranson, 25 years of age, was killed and six
other persons injured, two probably fatally,
as a result of a street feud right eariy to
day. There had long been bitter feeling
between the Lantern and Ranson families.
It led to trouble when they met at a dance
given last night at the home of Wesley
Barns, two miles east of Wllliamstown.
The first outbreak was suppressed, but
later the men met on the street and from
words took to firing pistols and throwing
stones. Fortunately the streets were nearly
deserted. Miss Ranson was killed by a
bullet, her brother Sidney was shot below
the heart and above the eye and his re
covery is doubtful, as also is that of

Papreme Court Hold la t'awe from

f roper ty Omitted by
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan. . (Special Telegram.)
The supreme court this morning refused a
rehearing; In the rase against Captain Allen
O. Fisher of Chadron, who was disbarred
for one year for presenting a fictitious
rltilm before the legislature. The action of
the court means the disbarment sentence
will be carried out. The rase arose out of
claim Fisher made to the legislature In
behalf of the heirs of Herman Goedile,
whose estate escheated to the state. The
amount demanded was much larger than
the amount to which they were entitled.
State Auditor Rarton has announced the
appointment of John W. Tulleys as state

caused by his transfer.
Fences for Railroads.
A. railroad company Is not required to
enclose that portion of Its right-of-way,
even outside of towns, villages, cities and
public highways, the enclosure of which,
by the construction of fences and cat'le
guards, W3Uld be an Increased danger to
human life. This Is the law as handed
down bv the court today In the case of
Horace E. Rurnham against The Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy Railway company,
appealed from Lancaster county.
Mnat Have Contract.
If a broker takes a piece of realty for
sale and neglects to secure a written con
tract providing for his compensation, he
cannot recover on quantum meruit for serv
ices rendered, nor for the value of the time
expended by him in making a' sale. In
other words, It must be there In black and
white or he must hold the sack. This Is
the law and It is reaffirmed in the case of
Charles O. Nelson against Orlando W. Web
ster et al.
As to Omitted Property.
In fin opinion handed down In the case
of the Chicago House Wrecking company
against the city of Omaha the court holds
that a tax commissioner In a city may
place on the tax rolls property omitted by
him at the time of the regular assessment,
placing upon the same the valuation fixed
by the reviewing board, the only require
ment being that he shall notify the prop
erty owner to appear and show cause why
such assessment should not be made. In
1899 the tax commissioner failed to place
the property of the plaintiff on the tax
rolls, which fact was discovered during
the sitting of the board of review. The
board placed the property on the rolls and
fixed Its value at 130,000. The tax commls
sioner then notified plaintiff of the action
taken and Informed it that if it did not
appear and show cause why this valuation
should not stand it would remain as fixed
t the board. The court holds that while
the board of review had not the authority
to assess, the notice served by the tax
ccmmlssloner Indicated his intention to
adopt the valuation made by the board
unless a showing against such assessment
should be made, and that his return of the
roll to the board with the assessment of
1.10.000 was sufficient proof that ha had
adopted it as his own.

Beauty and
Bad Breath
Cannot Go Together No Matter How a
Woman May Try to Make Them.
it aces not matter now oeaut.tul a wo
man may be, If she la afflicted with bad
breath she will be shunned and pitied by
men and even women will studious y avoid
If any woman doubts this statement let
her make a point of asking a friend In
whom she may confide, a man friend or
relative. If he be honest he will tell her
that foul breath from the mouth of a wo
man will drive men from her more rapidly any other personal affliction.
Foul breath arouses In man digust and
where this qua lty Is brought Into play
no amount of self-denial or reasoning can
overcome xne natural repugnance which
comes to man when he Is In company
with such a woman.
What Is true ot bad breath in woman Is
not true in so' great a degree in men. Wo
men are looked upon as the incarnation
of sweetness, breeding, v.rtue and lefii.e
ment Foul breath will sicken a man so
that he cannot feel for such a woman a
companionship necessary to make him de
sire to be In her company.
There Is absolutely no occasion for bd
breath in either men or wonnn. Charcoal,
ths strongest absorbent known, when take.i
Into the stomach, will prevent this repug
nant tendency or affliction.
Stuart's Charcoal Losenges are sold in
tremendous qjaniltles all over America and
Canada. They- cure and have cured all
forma of bad breath. A single box will
convince you of this fact. One should eat
some of these losenges after eich meal and
upon retlilng. You might eat fllty of them
without harm. They are not medicine, but
lure willow charcoal mixed with sweet
honey to make them palatable and com
pressed Into a losenge to preserve thalr
peculiar and lasting strength.
The next time you wish to go Into com
pany and don't want your foul breath to
humiliate you, eat several of Btuart's Char
coal Losenges and your breath w.ll be
pure and sweet.
Every druggist carries them, piles 25

and we will send you a trltl package by
