CANNON BALL PILLS. Big Balls of Pois:n Given as Medicine. Thousands Are Suffering From Mercurial Pill- Folson Taken In Youth—Days of the Pills Are Past. Do you want health? Then keep your bowels clean and your liver lively! It has always been known that constipation is the cause of nearly all disease, but the way of treating it has changed. The old way was to make up a sickening "black draught." or, still worse, an explosive "shot-gun" cartridge of calomel, aloes, jalap, gamboge, croton oil, blue mass, colocynth—the larger the bullet the better—and after the patient had swallowed the dose, thrown the bowels Into spasms and turned the liver inside out, he was settled for a few days—frequently forever. The most dangerous "medicine" of all was the mercurial pill-poison which lodged in the blood and joints producing lifelong aches. Force is folly, if you have any regard for your well being. When it becomes necessary to stir up your liver and have r general internal cleaning up, take Caßcarets Candy Cathartic, and produce natural action in a nice, gentle, quiet, positive way.

She Says, That She Waa Net Present When tlie Case Was Called, and She Will Surely Att«nd the Next Time the C««e Gomes Up. /^LOBE'S MINNEAPOLIS OFFICE, U 20 WASHINGTON AY. SOUTH. Telephone—Mnln 2013 Advertising- Subscriptions— 2790—J—4. Mrs. Jennie Fltkin, who is at Mason City, 10., with her mother, was quite surprised to learn that her absence from Minneapolis had created any alarm in the office of County Attorney Reed, and was much annoyed over the report that she had been prevailed upon to absent herself in order to prevent his conviction. She says her presence there is well known to all her friends, and that heifailure to be present when the Lutter case was called last Monday was due to a misapprehension as to the date of the trial. It was generally supposed that Mrs. Fitkin was averse to appearing as a witness, but she states positively that the has not the slightest desire or intention of shielding Lutter, and promises to be on hand promptly when the case is called. She promises specifically to be in Minneapolis on Feb. 10, and is apparently not aware that the trial was reset for Feb. 14. USED THEIR GINS. Walker People Bound to Preserve Their Timber. The people of the town of Walker, of •which Patrick McGarrlty is the leading citizen, have once again fallen back upon their rifles. This time it is done not to protect themselves against the murderous intent of the Pillager Indians, but it Is to preserve the beauty of the little town, made famous by the Indian trouble of little more than a year ago. The majority of the people of Walker desire to make their town a summer resort. In order -to do this they must preserve the timber which grows about the suburbs. They have made every erfort during the past season to prevent the cutting of this, and believed they had been successful. A few nights ago, however, a gang of lumbermen were discovered in the act of chopping down tne much coveted trees. The Walker people would not stand for this, and the rifles were pulled down from the racks. Tne lumbermen were informed that if they continued in the work they would be doing it at their peril. The lumbermen therefore withdrew. The Walker people claim that they secured from T. B. Walker, of Minneapolis, a promise that he would sell to them the timber in question, and that Mr. Walker has not kept faith with them. Representatives of Walker visited Minneapolis yesterday and consulted with Mr. Walker, in an effort to adjust the difficulties. JOHNSON GOES TO JAIL. His Wife Wants Him Held Pending the Divorce Trial.

The latter alleges that she is in destitute circumstances, and that while lie 1b fully capable of taking care of her, he has secreted and placed In hiding a large estate. An order was made requiring Johnson to give security In the sum of $1,000, In lieu of which he must remain in jail until the trial. He failed to furnish security. NEW 7 BRIGHTON PLANT. Representative of the Owner Trying to Interest Local CapitnliMtn. Elliot Pike, representing the R. T>. Fowler estate, which owns the New Brighton Packing House plant, has come to Minneapolis for the purpose of disposing of the plant to local capitalists, or forming- a stock company to operate it. Mrs. Fowler, who is the real owner of tne plant, prefers disposing of the property to Minneapolis parties, to operating It herself, and Mr. Pike is consequently attempting to interest local parties. The English estate Invested $350,000 in the plant, and it is not intended to allow it to remain idle any longer. SYMPATHY WITH BOERS. He-nnepln County Hibernian* PaMH Re*olntloiiM of Sympathy.

DENVER, Jan. 18.-The executive committee of the Monetary league has decided to hold a national convention at the same time and in the same city as the Democratic, silver Republican and Populist national conventions. The object of the league is to write the financial platform of the Democratic national platform. The following national executive committee of the league is announced by Judge A. W. Rucker: Judge Mose3 Hallett, Gov. C. S. Thomas, Justice L M. Goddard, Mr. T. M. Patterson, Judge C. I. Thompson, Senator Oscar Reuter Thomas Tongue, George G. Merrick, Mayor H. V. Johnson, J. N. Stephens, all of Denver; Gov. W. A. Poynter, Nebraska; Gov. J. H. Hogg, Texas; W. C. Hall, Salt Lake; Frank P. Drennan, of Illinois; John C. Stallcup, of Tacoma, and A. W. Rucker. The officers are Judge Rucker, president; H. V. Johnson, treasurer, and J. H. Stephens secretary. President Rucker is in correspondence with friends of the cause in this country and England, and he believes, from the letters arriving from England, that the- Boer war will be the solution of the silver question. He believes that on account of scarcity of circulating medium Great Britain will be obliged by the overwhelming sentiment of public opinion to reopen the mints of India to the free coinage of silver. MR. BICKNER'S VIEW. Says Democratic Party Is in Need of New Leaders. CHICAGO, Jan. 18. — Gen. Simon B. Buckner, of Kentucky, who was the vice presidential candidate on the gold Democratic ticket in 1896, was in Chicago to : day. and said fn an interview: "The Democratic party has no future until the element now in control has been wiped out, and this promises to be done at the elections this year. Expediency, not principle, is the motto of this element. The chief of its leaders, Mr. Bryan, is engaged in hunting an issue, which he hopes will secure votes, and not promote the principles which the Democratic party represents. His defeat this year promises to be even more overwhelming than in 1896, and there is every reason to believe the conservative element of the party will come into power. The present leaders would commit it against expansion when certain expansion was the essence of Jefferson's doctrine. As a political proposition there can be no doubt in my mind as to the wisdom of this country retaining the Philippines." INDORSEMENT REFUSED. Maryland House of Delegate* Declines to Accept Bryan Resolution. ANNAPOLIS, Md., Jan. 18.—The Maryland house of delegates, which is overwhelmingly Democratic, today refused to indorse William Jennings Bryan aa "the recognised leader of the Democracy in the United States," and practically killed a resolution introduced by a free silver advocate to invite Mr. Bryan to address the body.

Supply and Movement of the Precious Money Metal. NEW YORK, Jan. 18—A statistical review of the supply and movement of gold since the end of 1896 by Maurice L. Muhlman, deputy assistant treasurer of the United States, was given out today. Mr. Muhlman says: "The recent exportation of gold to Europe and the suspension of production In South Africa has directed attention to the world's supply of the yellow metal and its distribution. Accurate figures for the year 1899 are not -yet available, but those at hand are sufficiently so to permit a comprehensive' general view of the subject. I have taken for comparison the period from the close of 1896, in which year the conditions In the United States were decidedly unsettled. The world's production of gold in the last three years of 3897, 189S and IS9S is estimated to have been between $325,000,000 and $850,000,000. The following table shows the location of Important stocks of gold at dates named, in millions of dollars: Jan. 1, Jan. 1; Jan. 1, Jan. 1, 1897. 1898. 1899. 1900. In all European banks of issuel,s9l 1,749 1,632 1,593 Entire stock in United States. 693 745 949 1,016 U. S. treasury reserve 137 161 246 140 In U. S. national banks.. ISI 207 281 314 "It will thus be seen that the banks of Europe had on the first of the present month very little more gold than at the beginning of 1897, whereas the United States gained $333,000,000. We kept our own product and gained by Imports about $135,000,000. The United States was thus able to supply gold to Europe when tha demand arose." _ _»^ GOVERNOR OP ALBAY. Gen.

The inquiry was about accumulations of written matter no longer of use.but of such a private business nature as to necessitate careful disposal in order to prevent examination by outside parties—old account books, for instance. Years ago largo offices used at some expense to have such accumulations lestroyed. usually by lire. But this was troublesome, for paper in compact form is slow to burn, and the destroying of books and stacks of paper tended to clog furnaces. In course of time a paper manufacturer hit on the idea of taking such old papers to mill' under assurances of privacy and chemically removing all trace of writing. Market price being allowed for the paper thus gathered, what was before merely a waste and a source of trouble besides became productive of a revenue worthy of consideration, and the plan grew "in favor. At first houses would send employes with the stuff to the mills to be sure that no scattering occurred, but gradually this precaution came to be discontinued. A large paper concern with mill's in Connecticut has for years made a specialty of cofleeting such papers from bankers, Insurance companies and large mercantile houses and shipping them directly to the mills, where, by the of strong chemicals, all traces of writing are destroyed before the material is worked over into paper pulp. This feature of the economics of a great city's affairs has grown to great proportions, and sometimes single loads contain as much as twenty or thirty tons of paper, all* marked with writing. Incidentally, the spread of contagion by this method is effectually prevented. When the writing has disappeared from the sheets, so have all vestige of life. The refuse collected aids in making different varieties of paper, and the careful sorting process that must be employed constitutes one of the chief items of expense in using this material. The stuff which comes from correspondence offices goes in part to make writing paper The collections from newspaper headquarters, containing wood pulp, must be used for other purposes. All paper scrap is mixed with large proportions of fresh material In the manufacture of fresh white sheets. Carbolic Acid Cornea High. CHICAGO.
