REAL POWER OF THE PRESS.
But Is It not plain that the power
of the press as a saving agency de-
pends not so much on the skill of
Journalists as on their nobility of
character and their moral motive?
When we see so many accomplished
public men, adepts in all the technical
arts of politics, putting their power
to unpatriotic and selfish uses, it
seems to us that the salvation of the
GOING TO FUNERALS.
The habit of going to funerals
grows upon one so that It becomes vir-
tually ineradicable if properly encour-
aged. Such funerals as those of Grant
and Sherman are grandly solemn.
Mourning gives place to morbid curi-
osity to witness the spectacle and lis-
ten to the lofty strains of brass bands
in dead marches. There is something
deeply impressive about a military
funeral. As for the every-day funeral

NEW CONSUMPTION TREATMENT
A new remedial agent giving great
promise of future success In the treat-
ment of consumption la being tried
by two St. I-ouls physicians. The rem-
edy is a very powerful proteld, which
Is found In healthy blood, and the
theory is that Its use Increases the
carrying power of the blood so that
the dread disease can be thrown off
by the patient. The drug Is given In-
teirlllj Inhaled In the form of spray
or, Jn extreme cases. Injected hypo-
dermically. It Is very rapid In Its
action, the beneficial effect being
noticeable In a few days It Is alleged
that one patient, who was unable to
rise from bed, after receiving the
treatment for seven days walked a
distance of four blocks and climbed a
flight of stairs. It Is earnestly to be
hoped that further Invest I cat Ion wilt
prove the new remedy capable of all
that Is claimed for K.—Utica Globe.

Beware the Traveling Doctor.
St John. Kansas, May S”—A very
peculiar case is that of the little son
of Mr and Mr- Win M Bride of this
place, as reported by Dr. Jesse L.
Limes, the attending physician.
"The little boy had a severe case
of malignant sc-arletina which left
j him semi-paralyzed In the right leg
! and right arm. He also lost the hear-
ing In the right ear.
"I treated him and he gained slow-

came along and perauaded the child's
parents that he could cure their boy
In a short time. They used his medi-
cines, but the boy grew worse and bo-
gan having spells very like epilepsy.
"Mr. McBride came to me again and
I proposed giving him a course of
Dodd's Kidney Pills, which was com-
menced at once. The Improvement
was Instant and In a week's time the
epileptic seizures ceased altogether.”

Chill Is living over the history of
Peru. Itg northern part Is desert, its
central portion is vineyards, and the
southern region agricultural lands and

northern desert are yielding the coun-

from these rich fields, and he Is send-

Years ago Peru had a golden goose
in its guano islands and nitrate fields.
It derived millions from them and
spent those millions recklessly and
without thought of the future. One

They started well, but never got be-

All this was let out like shells from

"While the construction of the
Union Pacific Railroad, Its trials and
triumphs, art a part of the htotory of
the United States, the important part
played by this railroad In the develop-
ment of the Ixiuisiana Purchase can
hardly be estimated. In the building
up of this vast domain It has been one
of the chief factors.
One hundred years ago the popula-
tion of the region was estimated at
20,000. Up to the inception of the
Union Pacific (in 1860) it had In-
creased to 3,233.529 In 1900 it num-
bered over 13.o00.000 of inhabitants.
4n ibis wonderful growtk. mill its stu-
pendous Increase in all the many sided
phases of commercial, material and
Intellectual prosperity, the Unlou Pa-
elite—as a glance at the map will
show—has had a conspicuous share.
It has opened vast regions of fertile
country to settlers, and brought great
areas of an unknown and unproduc-
tive wilderness Into close communion
with metropolitan centers and mar-
ket*. Thriving cities, towns and ham-
lets. through its efforts, have sprung
up In every direction.
It may be of interest to know that
the total number of manufacturing
plants, anil the value of their outputs,
combined with that of the national
products as reported In the census of
1900. give an aggregate production for
the Louisiana region of 13,606,000.000
annually, or 223 times the original pur-
chase price. The same census report*
(1900) also show the total population
to be 13,343,255, of which 8,303.096 In-
habitants are living In the state* and
territories reached by the Union Pa
rifle. On the 1900 rensu* figures, It la
estimated that the true wealth of the
I/outslana purchase can lie stated at
about 113,051,868,369. of which 19.3*0,-
621,387 Is represented In the states
reached by this great railroad."
