OF A SECT. Mr. Vatralsfcy Telk How He Exposed Them. "Trufli Knpwers."! If. as Stoyan Krstoff Vatralsky insists, the "Trnth-Knowers" arc really -M-oliaromednns, the sensation which the young Bulgarian sprung in Kenosha a few Sunday* ago is likely to become historic. When Mr. Vatralsky was in Milwaukee to speak nt the Plymouth church, he was interviewed on the subject and he declared .most emphatically fhat the sect were really Mohammedans, though most of the members, he *aid, .-were probably BOt aware .of the fact themselves. He took the degrees -or lessons of the order so far as he could go without Butting hin)M>)f into a false position, and he therefore knows what its .teachings are. He could not take them nil because he could not without being guilty of lying, ibut he went almost to the end, and what he took was enough to give him an understanding of the whole. He was in a position to judge of the meaning of the teachings. As a graduate of Harvard he must huvc a trained mind, and having fctndiod comparative religions ho knew the essential doctrines of the Oriental cults. More than that, he had lived lor years in the leading Moslem country, Turkey, und learned Mohammedanism, its faith find works, at the fountain head. Such qualifications, entitle his opinions on the subject to great weight. - Founder of the Sect. The man who brought the teachings of the "Truth-Knowers" from the Orient Was Ibrahim G. Kheirallu," now in Chicago, a man bearing a Mohammedan name, which no Eastern Christian would give to a child because of the intense BTOY. AS KRSTOFF VATRALSKY. prejudice in the East between Moham- medans and Christians. "Khciralla." Mr. Valtrasky explains, is from the Ar-' able "Kheir," meaning blessing, and "All/i," meaning God. Alia is used for God by the Mohammedans the world over. The leader of the Kenosha sect is Byron Lime. The teaching was introduced into Chicago first and Kenosha is said to be the -second city in the United States. It was introduced two years ago nnd has grown rapidly. In Keuosha .alone -it is said that there arc between 200 and ii,°50 converts. Whether or not it is Mohammedanism or Bnbism it is •)>rohably the only religions teaching that i» secret aud wrapped iu mystery. Mr. Vnltialsky says the "Truth-Knowers" are really the same as the Oriental sect called Rnbi, .from -Bab, its founder, a Mqbanimptinn fanatic, and in spit* of tlicir secrecy anyone can get something Of the meaning, -origin and history of tbe cult by looking up .jabi" or "Babism" in the encyclopedias. "The self-styled Trutb-Kiiowprs,' " Bitid Mr. Valtratsky. "are ail esoteric Mohammedan sect, more pantheistic than Christian Science, muro absurd than Moruionism and by far the most -dangerous cult thnt has yet made its appearance on this continent." The Deadly Parallel. The lecture that caused the sensation was delivered by. Mr. Vatralsky in the •Park .A venue ••church on Sunday evening, October 29. In it he made' a long and studied comparison .of Babism aud the teachings of the "T-ruUi-Knowers." The chief points of resemblance he has set forth in the following example of "the deadly parallel:" The Mohammedan Bablsts. 1. Teach that Mohammed was u true nro- pbof. 2. Were founded In Persia In 1843 by a cealoUB -MohumnHjnuu, Seyed Mohammed All, culled Bab. meaning tJir Gate hence his followers were called -Baliists. 3.

Mr. Tatralsky is a son of a Bulgarian shepherd of Vakarel, a pastoral Tillage, situated some thirty miles southeast of Sophia, the capital of the principality of Bulgaria. He was brought up in the Greek church, the state church of Bulgaria, to which the Bulgarians belong by birthright. Being sent by h'is parents to study in the city of Samokoff, young Stoyan, when about 18 years old, came in contact with the American missionaries and was converted to ' Evangelical Christianity. After about six years of labor and study with onr missionaries, of whom he says, "They build better than they know," and whose work he characterizes as "The only star of hope upon the gloomy hoKJzon of Bulgaria," Mr. Vatralsky workeoMlia. way to this country in order to leara 'English, to finish his education, preparatory to Christian literature in his native Bulgaria. Mr. Vatralsky believes tha^ there is a crying need for such a work "In his moth- eiland, so he plans to preach Christ with pen rather than tongue, although he. aims to be ready for either. He has done some writing in this country, baring written for the Boston Transcript, the fse.w York Tribune, the Tenth's Companion and the Forum.

Goes Back to His Home in New Tork After Many Tears in Wisconsin. Hamilton, K. Y., Nov. 13.—James I^oomis has returned home after an absence of thirty-three years spent in a small Wisconsin town. His return solves one mystery, but shrouds another. There is no longer auy doubt about his being alive, but it remains unanswered whose bones were found a few miles south of this village in the spring of 1807. One cold and blustering morning in the earlv part of the winter of 1800 and ISOt, James Loomis imd his brother Henry set out from Hamilton for Oneida. 'They came as far as the Five I Chimneys, a locality about four miles south of here, where they found .the snow so deep that it was imppssible to drive through. James would not listen to Henry, who tried to dissuade him from attempting to complete the journey on foot. When the brothers parted that day, James to walk to Oneida and Henry to drive back to Hamilton, that was the last the one ever saw or heard of the other. The next spring the skeleton of a niaii was found by some boys in- the j woods near where the brothers separated. It was believed that James Loomis hud lost his was* and wandered into the woods, where he perished from exposure or-was killed. His return home after having been thought dead for a third of a century clearly indicates that he succeeded in reaching Oneida, whence he set out for— nobody knows where, as he is diffident about talking of himself and his travels. In conversing with old acquaintances he has admitted that he lived in a small town in Wisconsin. Loomis says he has had a hard life, and was never before in shape to return-home.

C., Nov. 13.—The committee on pension legislation appointed at the recent encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic at Philadelphia called at the white bouse today and presented to the President the report adopted at tbe encampment asking for a modification of certain regulations relative to pensibus. The committee consisted of R. B. Brown of Zanesville, O., chairman; Gen. A. D. Shaw, commander-in-chicf; Maj. J. W. Burst of Sycamore, 111.; Gen. Daniel E. Sickles of New York; Charles Clark Adams of Boston; and Past Commander-in-Chief John M. Palmer. The report asks the President if he deems it within bis authority so to issue an executive order to the effect that in determining the pensionable status of a soldier and in fixing his rate of pension the several disabilities which he may have sustained shall be grouped and taken into consideration. The report further asks the PresHJent to direct that the practice of refusing pensions to widows of soldiers who-have incomes of $96 a year or more be discontinued, and that the limit of income in such cases shall be raised to $£>0 a year. The committee was with the President for mere than an hour and a half. The committee stated that Mr. Evans, the commissioner of pensions, Was heartily in accord with these suggestions, he maintaining, however, that the remedy lay entirely with Congress as in his judgment the existing pension laws did not warrant such construction. The President listened with great attention to all the committee had to say and in conclusion assured them that their remarks would have the fullest consideration. MONUMENT TO WINNIE DAVIS. Impreulvc and Touching Ceremony la Richmond, Va. Richmond, Va., Nov. 10.—In the presence of a vast concourse of people the monument to the memory of Winnie Davis, the "Daughter of the Confederacy," was unveiled yesterday afternoon. As the veil fell back under the touch of Jefferson Hayes Davis and the snow-white figure of the angel of mercy with o.ut- spread wings stood revealed, there was a mnrmer of admiration through the dense crowd and many shed tears for the memory of her who lay beneath. It was an impressive procession which passed out to Hollywood cemetery, embracing the governor of the state, G. Hoge Tyler, Gen. Fitzhngh Lee, Judge John H. Reagan of Texas, sole survivor of the Confederate cabinet; Mrs. Jefferson Davis; her daughter, Mrs. Hayes, and hundreds of local and visit Confeder-- ate veterans and Daughters of the Confederacy. There were two nnvellings ,ln one. The marble monument to Winnie Davis was exposed to view and also a bronze figun. heroic in size to her father, 'the .Confederate President. The oration when the monnmnt was unveiled was delivered by B. B. Mulford, ex-state senator,. Judge TEteaga* was the speaker when' the statue to his chief was unveiled. Although eighty years of ace, his form, is still erect and he spoke in vigorous terms In praise of the Confederacy's President. Gen. Fitxhugh 3>ee followed Judge Beagan in an eloquent address. ^ TJajnjuteS to JSflPrJXMUrt* " Chicago, IU, Nov." 10—Breich, of j>romu)e;to manrrjs given as the cause " ikinKjSOOO damages'filed ye«,„-. *K jpP'gfor $«8S&i&&xB** Miner otBpta^J^ plaintiffs attorney the marriage'was set for last spring, bnt was postponed at ' Hemline's request.

Uany Students Wbo Took Part in Hal. loween Haiti Quit the University. Madison, Wis., Nov. 11.—[Special.]— Twenty-two students have been brought up for a hearing before the faculty committee charged with being implicated in the Halloween raid on Ladies' hall. The testimony of a large number of witnesses of the affair was heard in private this morning, while the other students who had received notice to appear waited outside of the dean's office for their turn. . It now develops that a number of students, who feared that they had been identified as being connected with the disgraceful proceedings, have taken "French leave" from the university. At least six ot_jh&J>oys who took part in the affair arc known to have left Madi- sln. It is given out by the associates of some of them that their good conduct heretofore led the faculty to give them a warning hint, that they might be saved the_ disgrace of being expelled. New evidence has been coining in more rapidly in the past few days. Those in charge have deplored the fact that the police have given them little assistance and that they were handic-aped by the same indifference of the police in the opera house affair of last winter. Miss Bright, formerly matron of Ladies' hall, does not hold the boys as guilty as many others do, but is inclined to defend them. She says that it was always customary for the boys to go in a body ,to the hall on Halloween :md to perform out in front. It was also customary for the girls to give a fancy dress party. This year the girls decided to have a dance and part .wear dress suit and pretend to be boys. Many of the gins borrowed dress suits from the fellows and it was a desire to see how -the girls looked in their clothes that incited .the boys to enter the hall. \Vhen the boys arrived at the hall the girls ran to the windows aud Inughrd and some beckoned to tho boys and Miss Bright believes that the girls by their.en- couragement are in a way responsible for the trouble. It is rumored that 200 notices were last evening sent out to students setting time for them to appear before the faculty in regard to the raid. Consternation is felt on all sides and the boys are thoroughly scared. One of the members of the second eleven was notified by the dean that if he did not leave the university by Monday he would be expelled. He left for home today. It has leaked ont that there have been some tale-bearers, who were otherwise disinterested. This fact has so exasperated students who were not Concerned, and who have joined -in condemnation of the guilty ones, that it is feared there will be other punishment dealt out than mi-re suspension. Hazing has been freely talked of. nnd the excitement among the students increases as the reports are received from those who have had their hearing and suspect tattlers. DEATH OF MRS. MARTIN.

A GHASTLY FIND. Mpp His Early Rebuffs from Publishers and J-Hs Sudden* Rec- ognftlorr. The rise of Rudyard.Kipling is a subject full of interest. Ten years ago his : circle of readers was narrow, confined, to all intents and purposes, to the English in India. It was in 1SS9 that he left Calcutta, for iJOfcBon,' by way of America. He carried .with him a collection of the stories and-poems he had written for Indian . newspapers. The publishers of the ether -continents had not as yet recognized- the virility and pos| sibility of his writings.' A" volonie or j two of his stories and his verse had been , published by a Calcutta firm. But he had' not as yet learned his full strength, he had not gathered the literary momentum that followed the stimulus of jjen- • eral recognition. He came through'this country from Saa Francisco to New \ork, and on the way collected material for his "American Notes," a book which • he now would prefer to have suppressed. Like many a hopeful young writer before' him, he went from publisher to publisher iu New York. But none of them cared to take him up. Their cold politeness must have made his ambitious soul burn with determination. They little knew what a mine of literary - ore they , failed to discover from the outcroppiugs. and specimens he had to show. Wjien he' went to London he found" the publishers there indifferent also. But Wpjcott Balestier, the London agent of the American publisher, John W. Lovell, discovered the quality in the Indian tales and agreed to publish four volumes of Kipling's work for the American market. They were not copyrighted. It was a case of trusting to the advantage of being first in the field. The volumes were issued. The magazines and newspapers soon found ont that th'e books were not copyrighted, and the stories and poems were freely reprinted. Everyone remembers how the Kipling craze took possession of the country. Among those who republished some of the stories and poems were the Harpers. Not wishing to be Four Dead Bodies Shipped In Trunks to a Medical Collecre. St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 14.—Four zinc- lined trunks, such as are used by traveling men to carry samples, each contain ing a corpse, were taken from the bag- gageroom at Union station today and Frank Thompson, who says he is city undertaker of Memphis, Tenn., is under arrest. Recently a shipment of four bodies in trunks was made addressed to W. H. Hamsen at Keokuk, la., to whom those captured today were also consigned. When taken to police headquarters, Thompson told of the whole affair. He said ho,had the contract for burying the city dead of Memphis. For some time he had been selling the bodies to medical colleges throughout this part of the country. His method was to .pack them with excelsior in drummer's zinc-lined trunks and take them with him as baggage as far as St. Louis. From here he shipped the trurtks to their destination by express, Thompson said he had been paid all the way from $50 to $200 per body. He said the name "W. H. Hamsen," to whom the trunks were addressed in Keokuk, is a fictitious one, but refused to state who his consignee ia. Memphis, Tenn., Nov. 14.—Frank Thompson, who is under arrest in St. Louis, is well known in Memphis, being the county undertaker. He has been indicted on two occasions charged with improper burial of pauper dead. On both occasions, however, Thompson gave a satisfactory explanation and was released. f 'Honor is Purchased by Deeds We Do."

Kipling still smarted tinder the recollection of the* reception given .him bv the Harpers and the other American publishers. He promptly sent the draft back, in a. letter that, to say the least, 'was tart and outspoken. But the matter did not end there. It happened that Mr. -Bal- istier had a yearly allowance from his employers, to be used in entertaining authors in London. His house wfls a ren- dfvous. One day soon after the Harper incident Kipling met Besant, Hardy and Black at Balestier's. He told them of how he had returned the draft, and spoke bis whole mind about "Yankee pirates." Now the Harpers were the American publishers of these "three great captains," and they vigorusly protested, saying that they hud always been treated fairly by the "Harpers, and assured Kipling that the Harpers favored au international copyright law. They were indignant. Kipling compared them to ships-of-the-linc, and himself- to a little trading vessel. Of course the pirate Would not dare to uioiest them, he said, but did not hesitate to plunder him. YOW- iug that he. too, would one day become a shtp-of-the-line. he left them, and wrote his ballad "The Three Captains." It appeared in the next number of the Athena* um. In the light of the events- do-, scribed, it is interesting to read the bdllad and, note the meaning of the slashing lines. It begins: "• * * At the close of a winter's day. Their anchors down, by London town, the Three Grent Captains lay. And one was Admiral of tae North from Salway Firth to Skye. This is William Black. And one was lord of the Wessex coast and nil the lands thereby. This is Thomas Hardy. And one was Master of the Thames from Lhnehouse . to Blackwall, : And he was Captain of the fleet—tbe bravest of them all. Walter Besaut. Then, describing himself as "a little trading brig," he goes on: Her rigging was rough with the clotted drift that drives In a Northern breeze. Her sides were dogged with the lazy weed that spawns In the Eastern seas. Ught she rode in the rude tide-rip, to left and right she rolled, And the skipper sat on the scnttle-bntt and stared at an empty hold. The absence of an international copyright law had led to all his woes, and he puts a world of bitter meaning into these lines: "I ha' paid Port dues for your Law," quoth he, "and where is the Law ye boast If I sail unscathed from a heathen port to l«! robbed on a Christian coast? Then he goes on to say: I hud no tear bat the seas were clear as far as n sail might fare. Till I met with lime-washed Yankee brig that rode off Finlsterre. There were canvas blinds to his bow-gun ports to screen the weight he bore. And the signals- ran for a merchantman from Sandy Hook to the Nore. Of course, the "lime-washed Yankee brig" represents the Harpers. There is a savage and slashing vigor in the wa; he vents his anger: Had I had guns (as I had goods) to work my Christian harm, I had run him up from his quarter-deck to trade with Ms own yard-arm; I bad nailed his ears to my capstan-head, and ripped tiem off with a saw. And soused them In the bllgewater, and served them to him raw; I had flung him blind in a rudderless boat to rot in the rocking dark; had towed him aft of his own craft, a bait for his brother shark; had lapped him round with cocoa husk, and drenched him with tbe oil, And lashed him fast to bis own mast to blaze above my spoil; [ had stripped his hide for my hammock- side, and tasseled his beard 1' the mesh. And spitted his crew on the live bamboo that grows through the gangrened flesh; [ had hove him down by the mangroves brown, where the mud-reef sucks and draws, Moored by the heel to his own keel to wait for the land-crab's claws! He Is lazar within and line without, ye can nose him far enow, For be carries the Mint of a musky ship— the reek of the slaver's dbowr' Bnt enough examples have been given to enable those who may not have been aware of the history of this ballad to reread it and find the sweeping lines full of new significance. There is no mis. aking the names of the three captains in hese lines: Then fore-sheet borne as she lifts to the foam—we stand on the outward t»«k We are paid In the coin of the white man's trade—the besant is hard, ay, and black. It is all but another example of the special significance of many bits of wrung, which, were it not'for recorded ex- ilanation, might have bat a vague meah- ngto-the average reader. But Kipling has since seen that the tremendous free advertising which he then had was, ia ; a way, the making of him. He is no longer the little trading brig, but a ship of the ine. •' FAT ENOUGH. ' A man weighing 150 pounds .has fat enough in his body to make a dozen good i^ sized candles. That's "fat enough.'' Too muchT fat or too little indicates a disordered physical condi^ tion. The average American has too little fat. He is'' gaunt and spare. Americans are known to the world as a nation of dyspeptics. That is the price they pay for a success r which does not take time to eat properly. No man can be strong-ll er than his stomach. The man with a "weak stomach" will be a^ Fweak man. Nature sustains life by food. All the strength of the body 'is derived from food. But it is not the food which is eaten but the food fthat is digested and assimilated which is life-sustaining and strength-giv-^ ''"g. When the stomach is " weak," the food is imperfectly digested and the- fy as a consequence, is insufficiently nourished. No fat can be put on the Tbody until the nourishment derived from food exceeds the daily requiremem% Tof the body in wear and waste of tissue. When the stomach is " weak," me ni ] trition falls below the daily requirements of the body. Then from lack of nutri| 'ment other organs become "weak" and as a result of "weak" stomach we have! "weak"lungs, "weak"heart "weak nerves, etc. The cures of " lung trouble," " heart'trouble," " liver trouble," "nerve and "blood trouble," accomplished by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis~ covery, are due to the fact that this medicine acts directly on the stomach (and/l the nutritive and digestive system), removing obstructions to its activity an&S health, and enabling it to supply the body with the necessary nutrition. Thusju every organ is properly fed and surely strengthened. " Golden Medical Discovery*' .is not a cure-all. It is a medicine for the stomach and organs of digestion and 1 / [nutrition. It cures diseases remote from the stomach because diseases which originate in the stomach are cured through the stomach. It cures many forms of disease, because many forms of disease h ^ their origin in a diseased condition of the stomach. The "Discovery" supply, in the possible, creas- increases the blood ~ only way by in- ing the of the nu- ments from made, and increasing the activity of the blood- making glands. No medicine can make a drop of blood. No medicine supply tritive ele- 'Vhich blood is can add to a man's strength more than to his stature. So-called "strength- giving" medicines are simply stimulants. All strength comes from food and it is by enabling the body to assimilate the food values that "weak" lungs, "weak" heart, "weak" nerves, and other maladies are perfectly and permanently cured by "Golden Medical Discovery." It is a temperance medicine containing neither alcohol nor narcotics. There is nothing just as good as " Discovery." "f Gave Up In Despair." "For seven years I suffered with a complication of diseases including heart trouble, dyspepsia, catarrh of the stomach, and female weakness, writes Mrs. Harrette Mar.- tin, of Pedlo, Boone Co., Ark. "'During that time I think I suffered all that human flesh could suffer. I was never without pain. Was just dragging around, and was unable to do anything at all. In the summer of 1898 I was obliged to go to bed. Had smothering spells and a great misery in the lower bowels, and a very severe cough. I was "treated by three of the best doctors this country affords. I could not sit up only as I was propped up in bed. I would take one-half pint of cough medicine a day. Finally the doctors said I had consumption in the last stage and that I was bound to die, so I gave up in despair. My husband ..then bought me a bottle of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.

Would have death-like pains in my side, and blind spells, and thought that life was hardly worth livings. I decided to consult Dr. R. V. Pierce, and his staff of physicians. They said my case was \cnrable and I was greatly encouraged. I began taking Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and 'Pleasant Pellets,' as advised (in August, 1898). .Before I had taken half of the second bottle I began to feel relieved.

English Premier Says War Is for Equal Rights and Not for Gold Mines. London, Nov. 10.—Lord Salisbury spoke of the Boer war and its causes at the lord mayor's banquet last night. He said the teal cause of the war was "the unfortunate arrangement of 1881," made b> Mr. Gladstone. He scouted the talk Of foreign intervention as a dream. He mentioned the Samoan agreement, and said England's relations with Germany were .all that England could desire. He said England sought neither gold nor diamond mines, bnt only equal rights for atf men in South Africa. He promised that England would so govern the territory concerned as to prevent a renewal of strife. England would follow the best 'traditions of her colonial governments and maintain that equal justice to all races which is her uniform practice. The prime minister said he wished to deprecate certain criticisms and statements which were not well founded. A feeling existed that the lack of troops was in some way due to want of action on the part of tbe government. On this point there had been two opinions, one in favor of and the other against military preparation. . ^'It is.stated abroad," said the premier, "that we are a strong nation attacking a weak one, i But, surely, as our forces are so fat distant, it would be nearer the truth to say that we were a weak nation attacking a 'strong one. "What was the cause of the war and the 'Boer ultimatum?. It was said that it was because we had taken measures to increase our-force in South Africa. If we'had increased this force earlier the Transvaal ultimatum would have been sebtr earlier. 7 ' "The real cause dates from the unfortunate arrangements 1 of 1881, whereby we "permitted a community admittedly hostile-to us to enjoy the, right of accumulating unbounded munitions of war. "Onr troops are now beginning to ar- rive'insSonth Africa. .Foreign nations have,complimented -us on the coolness -with-which we have received news of checks. iBnt we knew that cheeks were always, the outset" Lord- SaEsbury^declared that his faith"in the British;KMier was-nnbonnded^ ,, j tsaid.hev- such, and that, of course, was to the advantage of England. That was all we desired. "We neither sought tne gold territory nor the diamond mines, but equal rights for all men. It cannot be doubted that we shall so arrange the Issue of the conflict as to confer good government on the area concerned, and give that security which ia sorely needed against the recurrence of any strife in that- portion of the world." Lord Salisbury said he had seen wild suggestions that foreign powers would interfere in the present conflict and would dictate in some form or other what the upshot would be. He continued: "Do not let any man think that it is hi that fashion this conflict will be concluded. We will have to carry it through ourselves, and the interference of nobody will have any effect: in the first place, because we should not accept such interference quietly, and in the second place, because I am convinced that there is no such idea in the mind of any government in the world;" Lord Salisbury said he remembered five or six great wars involving- territorial, modification, but, except as provided by treaties, in none of these cases had a third power ventured to interfere, either in the campaign or in the terms of settlement. The powers had not .claimed the right to interfere, because they knew that, according to international law, they did not possess any such right. Dreams of that kind, therefore, should be set In conclusion, the premier said: "Whenever we are victorious, we shall consult the vast interests committted to our carei and the vast duties we have to perform. We shall take counsel of the uniform traditions of onr colonial government, and maintain that equal justice to SB races which it has been our uniform practice to observe.''
