Indianapolis. Dec. 4.—A committee represent it; the various natural gasin- terests of the state held a. conference with Governor Mount yt-stc-rday afternoon to evolve a plan for stopping the waste of gas. th>- several i-uggi-stions made at meetings here ,-ind ;it utlu-r points being be-fore the conference. The governor W:-LS in favor of proceeding in the most expeditious manner possible, •which Is by injunction, but the fact that Judge ilcClure. of Jladison county, has already refused to issue an injunction and has held the law invalid, ik-tenx-d the committee from attempting anothut move in that direction. Will Take an Appeal at Once. The same judge held the- penalty clause of the law valid, and about thirty fines of $200 ar.d $10 a day for each day that the gas from a well is allowed to go to waste have boon imposed, A representative of the attorney general'* ofiice Wfis present, and upon his suggestion it was determined to take an appeal from Judge McClure at once and ask the supreme court to advance the case for immediate hearing. The oil men who have been fined under the penalty section have agreed also to appeal at once, and all phases of the law •will thus be before the court of last resort. Threatens to Use His Artillery. Anderson. Ind., Dec. 4.—The city of Alexandria held a special council seP- »ion and issued orders to Police Officer Houston to cap the wells that are \vast- l»g natural gas. As soon as he heard of the order Bert Carver, on whose property several of the wells are located. Issued an ultimatum that he •would send a bullet through any man or men who attempted to cap one of his wells. Other oil men are issuing similar ultimatums and tragedies will be enacted if an attempt is made to carry out the orders. Carver is a man •f his word and he owns the most wasteful of the wells, located in Alexandria. J. J. Netterville and others of this city are preparing injunction suits against oil operators. BANK BUKULAKS AT MILFORD. Details of the Attempted Ilobbcrj—Tliugg Make a Haieli .Iol>. Mllford, Ind,, Dee. 4.—Five men tried to rob the private bunk of Miles & Higbee here Thursday morning and failed. Xight Watchman Stirtler heard the patter of horses' hoofs a little before 2 o'clock. As he was passing the bank door two men stepped from the mouth of the alley and put revolvers in his face. Another member of the gang dealt him a blow ucruss the head with a heavy piece of iron, lie was dragged to £ e rear door of the bank and loft lying in the alley, while the three men began forcing an entrance to the hunk. Just then Dr. \V. H. Black, who had been out with a patient, crossed the street 0:1 his way home. The tu-o otln-r members of the gang seized him. led him to the bank and bound and gagged him, putting both prisoners on the Hour in the room wherv the safe was located, ' The safe was then drilled in a crude way, black powder inserted and the ro.bbers stepped outside to await the ,*Tplo§ion. It was a fizzle. A second ^4^6- the powder was inserted and again tjie five robbers left the building, expecting the safe to be wrecked and the two prisoners killed, hut again the powder failed to explode. It was now after 3 o'clock and the robbers were afraid to stay longer. They swore £tt •ne another because dynamite or giant powder had not been brought, and then said good-bye to the two men who were bound. By violent struggling the night watchman released himself in half an hour. He at once unbound Dr. Black, and the town was aroused. There was about $60.000 in the safe. BEET SVCiAK IX A SMALL WAY. It May Re 1'roilucort but Will Not lie Fit for Home I'se. Indianapolis. Dec. •!.—In reply to an appeal from the Kpitomist Publishing company, of. this city, asking for some process by which farmers may produce beet sugar at home in it small way for their own use. Dr. H. X. "Wiley, cheif chemist of the I'nited States department of agriculture at "Washington, expresses his views as follows: "The production of a crude beet sugar in a small way is an extremely simple process. Any farmer who is equipped with a cider mill for rasping the beets, a cider press f«r expressing the juice and an evaporator suitable for making sorghum molasses. can produce a crude beet sugar. As a rule this sugar will not be very palatable, because it is not refined and contains the salts and bitter principles which make raw beet sugar and beet molasses, as a rule, unfit for table use. It "will be, however, an interesting object lesson to our farmers to demonstrate the fact that the sugar beet itself contains sugar, and that the latter can be made in the crude way I have mentioned above. In this way the making ot" sugar in a final! way by farmers may prove a stimulus to the industry and do great good. Farmers, however, should not be deceived by the expectation of being able to make their sugar in a successful way commercially. The successful and profitable manufacture of sugar can orily be accomplished in expensive factories, equipped with ali the appliances necessary to make a pure refined sugar. Only the pure re- flned beet sugar can ever become an ar- tlcle of commerce.^ Democratic Committee Called. Indianapolis, Dec. 4.—Chairman Mar- Mn, of the Democratic state central committee, has called a meeting of that body for next Tuesday to take preliminary steps for the reorganization of WOMAN'S WONDERFUL WAYS Thcj Are Wonderfully Described. A Symipsls of a Lecture Oelirered bj Mis. Kfudall Before the rt'o- mail's Sochtj. Boston. Nov. 3.—A. large and re fiaed audience of ladies greeted Mrs. Kendall upon the occasion of her second appearance before a B •ston assemblage tnls afternoon. In Introducing her lecture the distinguished lady referred to the true position ot woman In society,aod how her physi cal condition aflects ber social and physical standing. Continuing she said: '•Those who have made careful ID vestigatlon tell us that heathen wo men are mucb more able to endure pain than are the women of civilization; but civilized women resent the charge that they are weaker because they are civilized. A dist^ guished writer says: ; If the women of civilization are less able to endure than are heathen women, It Is a mere accidental circumstance, and one within their control,' When a woman has health, beauty is certain to appear, even In features once plain With health and beauty in all their attractiveness a new life dawns, enjoyment begins, and all the luxurious attendants of a healthy body come roitb.. The maiden feels the glorious possibilities of life: the mother feels conscious of the grandeur of maternity and the joys of a family. The Creator has given both woman and man perfect physical forms, aod each is constitutionally equal to all natural derxunds, but how much wo; men suffer, and ID what numbers of" cases is man alone to blame '•A few weeks ago 1 received aca 1 from a charming lady, who stated that she was suffering, and wished to know If I could in any way aid her. There Is no doubt that thousands of women are sufltering today from similar troubles, who do not recognize their cause so nearly as this lady did. She felt languid, peevish, restless, blue. She had headache, backache, cold feet and sinking sensations. Her complexion was sallow: her appetite fickle. I knew the cause and I am happy to state that I was able to afford relief. "No woman Is ever seriously sick for any length of time when the blood s pure, an no blood can be Impure when the kidneys and liver are in perfect order. I feel it my privilege today to state that I believe there is a means whereby women who are suffering caa obtain complete relief and those who are in health be continued in its enjoyment. A few years aeo a prominent and wealthy gentleman was given up to die of Brig'nt's disease of the kidneys. By means of a simple and purely vegetable remedy he was resored to perfect health. So efficient did this remedy prove in the case of many well-known men that it began to be used by ladies, and today thousands of women iv all parts of the land owe their restored health and continued happiness to the won • derful power of Warner's Safe Cure. "The performance of the natural functions of womanhood and motherhood I* not a disease, nor should it be so treated. If, however, the blood be Impure, It Is certain to produce poisonous effects in the parts with which It comes in contact and thus cause ioflainmitlon and the innumerable ills which make the physical life of women so hard to endure. I am aware a prejudice exists against proprietary medicines, and that such prejudice is too often well founded, Out we should discriminate—not condemn all because some are inefficient. The merits of Warner's Safe Cure have been proven beyond a doubt, because they deal directly with the causes of all female troubles. '•The minds arid manners of American women are all that can be desired, but it Is a lamentable fact that their physical frames are far inferior in comparison with their social and mental characteristics. The women of England are noted for their florid health; those of Germany for their strong constitutions, and the ladies of France for their exuberance of spirits: but American women possess two few of these qualities in any prominence, and all of them only in a slight degree. The reason Tor this must be plain to every careful observer. Sedentary ways, devotion to fashion—but above all and more than ail, carelessness and indifference to daily habits and duties have rendered the women of this land far less strong and healthy than it is either their duty or privilege to be. This irregular and indifferent manner of living brings about the most serious results, and is both directly and Indirectly of untold injury to the race. The cause, therefore, being manifestly under the control of the women themselves, the power to remove it must naturally be theirs also. To maintain one's health, the organs which make and purify the blood mast be preserved In or restored to their normal condition. These organs are the kidneys and liver. Praserye them and yon preserve your life: neglect them and you become sallow, languid aod unattractive." Glass 3Icn Propose a Strike. Greenfield, IncL, Dec. 4.—The Greenfield prc-ceptory of the National Window Glass Workers' association has applied for permission to erect two tanks of a capacity of forty-eight blowers.

A SAVAGE "SCORCHER. How a Wild Sioux Roams the Prairi.es on a Wheel. The savage Sioux Indians nrc alert archers of civilization even if they are slow to adopt civilized customs. There is authenriCivU'Cl story that when the Great Northern railway was being built through Montana, a, noted chief offered to rado 100 ponies for a, locomotive, which, 10 imagined, could be driven at will over the prairies. The clement of roadbed and track was explained to him and he concluded to keen his ponies. Now some of the Sioux have taken to the bicycle. The great- HOLE-1N-THE-DAT. !St Indian at Devil's Dike, N".
