Catarrh in its various forms is a national disease, and the fact that nearly everybody suffers from it more or less leads many to neglect its proper treatment. Nasal catarrh is a common cause of headaches, destroys sense of smell and if negioc:cd reaches the throat, causing lmpfii'merit and sometime* total loss of voice. Bronchial catarrh leads easily to coi,.~umpiion. Catarrh of stomach "and liver are very serious and obstinate troubles, while it is now generally admitted that catarrh is the most common of all causes of deafness. All of the more serious forms of catarrh begin with nasal catarrh, the local symptoms s being a profuse discharge, stoppage of nostrils, irritation and frequent clearing of the throat, sneezing, coughing and gagging. The old style of treatment with douches, inhalers, sprays, salves, etc., simply give temporary relief and everyone who has used any of them knows how useless they are and their incon.. venience is such that very few have the time or patience to continue their use. A radical cure of catarrh can only be obtained from a treatment which removes the catarrhal taint from the blood, because no one will now dispute that catarrh is a constitutional or blood disease, and local applications can have no effect except to-temporarily relieve local symptoms. A new remedy which has been remarkably successful in curing catarrh is a pleasant tasting tablet which is taken internally and acts upon the blood and mucous membranes. It is composed of antiseptic remedies like Eucalyptol, Guaiacol, Sanguinaria, Hydrastin and similar cleansing specifies which eliminate the catarrhal poison from the system. The tablets being pleasant to th* taste, are dissolved in the mouth and thus reach the throat, trachea and flnally the stomach and entire alimentary canal. They are sold by druggists everywhere under name of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets. If desired, when there is much stoppage of the nose, the tablets may be dissolved in warm water and used as a douche in addition to internal use, but a douche is not at all necessary. A tev» dissolved in the mouth daily will be sufficient. Dr. Ainslee says: "The regular daily use of Stuart's Catarrh .Tablet* taken internally will cure the whole catarrhal trouble without resorting to the Inconvenience of a douche or an inhaler." They seem to give a healthy tone to the whole mucous membrane and it 1* really^ remarkable how soon they will clear the head and throat of the unnatural and poisonous catarrhal secretion. Stuart's Catarrh Tablets is undoubtedly the safest, most palatable and certainly the most efficient and convenient remedy for any form of catarrh. It is sold by druggists at 50 cents for full sized treatment. A little booklet on cause and cure of catarrh mailed free by addressing F. A. Stuart Co., Marshall, Mich. ages for assault, and which was tried before Judge Elliott, came into court yesterday morning and reported that they were unable to agree. The Jury was. out all night, and were In consultation over twenty hours. STRUCK BY FALLING LIMB. Alfred Lout*, of This City, Killed In a Lun»*»er Camp.

FORT BENTON, Mont.Feb. 24.—Northern Montana has just passed through the hardest storm of the winter, but reports from the'range show the loss of slock will be small, as the cattle and sheep commenced the winter in better condition than for many years.

There was a large sale of all kinds of farm machinery last summer and every part of the benches and bottoms was searched for hay. Such stocks and ricks of hay have seldom been seen on any of tire ranches, but instead of a long, hard winter of six months, such as that of 1898-9, when everyone ran short of hay In March, the present winter has been open and many will have their entire cut left over for another year.

RDSH FOR FARM LANDS RAILROADS ABE ALREADY BE- ' GINNING TO FEEL A HEAVY PRESSURE CHANGES ON THE CENTRAL Some Dissatisfaction Is Reported Among Employe* Because of Changes In the Operating Department — Strong Demand for Washington Fruit Lands —>c w* of Railroads for a Day. agents of the coast lines state that the rush for farm lands and homesteads this year will result In an increase of sales of railroad lands even over ihose of last year. The business handled by the land departments of the Northern Pacific and Great Northern during the past year showed a very marked increase over anything recorded previously and the year was looked upon as a banner one. Though it is yet conn time before the season opens, the bulk of mall matter dally received inquiring for information and printed matter concerning lands in the Northwest is largely increased. The Great Northern has already announced special rates for early dates to accommodate those wishing to locate lands at once and the general outlook is very bright. Immigration agents look for heavy settlement in Montana, North Dakota and Washington this year. Especial efforts have been made to advertise the attractions of these localities and special Inducements have been offered to attract settlers. The demand for Washington fruit lands 4s strong and the letters whioh come daily from the Middle states asking for information concerning desirable farming lands indicate a heavy business in this direction. ACTION INVOLVES MILLIONsT Union Pacific Vitally Interested In a Supreme Court Case. SIOUX CITY, 10., Feb. 24.—A director of the Union Pacific Railroad company said that not for $50,000,000 would the company have Its Interests affected by) an adverse decision in the great case which will come up for hearing bofore the United States supreme court in Washington next Monday, In which the Credits Com- j bination company and the Combination Bridge company, both of this city are ap- | pellants. When-the suit was on, during j the time of ths Union Pacific foreclos- ! fires, it Is said that it stirred up such a hornet's nest that it compelled the reorganization committee to pay $17,000,000 more for the road than it had intended to pay. The Eastern bankers who compose the Credits Combination company said that it brought to light facts regarding the Union Pacific which congress never knew. It is Sioux City's great fight, but at the same time its purpose will affect all the towns and cities near the 2,855 mil>es of - its lenjjth. The demand is that a sectten of an act of congress shall be recognized, and that a business connection be made with the Union Pacific road. The Bection in question is No. 15 of act of July I, 1802, and it is as follows: Section 15. And be it further enacted, that any other railroad company now incorporated, er hereafter to be incorporated shall have the right to connect their road with the road and branches provided for by this act, at such places, and upon such just and equitable terms, as the president of the United States may prescribe. Wherever the word company is used in this act It shall be construed to embrace the words, their associates, successors and assigns, the same as if the words had been properly added thereto. If the appellants win before the supreme court they say they will immediately build a road from Sioux City to North Platte, Julesburg, or any other place which the president of the United States shall- designate. A connection in the way of business, not a junction of rails, is sought "at such place and on such just and equitable terms &s the president of the United States shall prescribe." The suit was brought as a petition of intervention at the time the foreclosures of the Union Pacific were in progress, the terms of the act and section thereof cited above. The circuit court denied the petition, and the United States circuit court of appeals dismissed the appeals on the grounds that the circuit court had not determined any of the merits of the controversy, but merely kept the petitioners out of Union Pacific foreclosure suits and relegated them to an- Independent suit in equity as a more apropriate action. It said that, Inasmuch as the circuit court had not passed on any of the" rights of the petitioners, the appeal should be dismissed without deciding what rights of connection with the Union Pacific the petitioners might have under the act of congress. From this last decision appeals were taken to the United States supreme court and will come up for hearing the last of March. The Union Pacific has now filed motions to dismiss the appeals in that court for the same reasons that the United States circuit court of appeals gave, they being questions of practice, exclusive of the rights or merits of the petitioners' legal claims, and the hearing of those motions have been set for Monday. Then will the Union Pacific's right to refuse a business connection be determined. CHANGES CAUSE UNREST. Dissatisfaction Reported Amon«r Wlscon«ln Central Employes. The changes on Wisconsin Central divisions during the past few months have occasioned considerable discontent among the employes of the road. The latest friction comes from a new policy introduced by the management, under which a large number of the old engineers have been discharged and new men placed in their positions. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, Great Northern and Chicago, Minneapolis & Omaha have been drawn upon for the changes, and Wisconsin Central engineers claim unfairness. Since the termination of the receivership of the road the new executive staff has introduced a number of innovations. The plan to change the location and termini of the different divisions, thereby making it necessary for a large number of employes to change their residences, met with opposition from the men. Shortly after, several alterations were made In methods of operation, putting the men on a different basis. During the past three months the road has been purchasing locomotives from the Great Northern, and with the new engines have come a new set of engineers. The men claim that the road is preparing to say that others will take their places unless the opposition diminishes. During the winter the road has been unfortunate in its operation, and a number of wrecks have occurred, which have given occasion for the discharge of old employes. The men claim that in several Instances the accidents were due to defective conditions in the track and roadbed of the Una and not to incompetency of the employes. It is charged that the management has sought to shift the .responsibility for accidents to the men, and this has aroused a decided kick. MILWAUKEE EXTENSION. Party of Surveyor* at Bowdle to Select a Roate. BOWDLB, S. D., Feb. 24.—A surveying party, with complete outfits for work, ha» arrived and pitched tents and will soon commence marking out a line to the Missouri river, and possibly beyond. Bowdle 1b the Western terminus of the James River division of the Milwaukee road,and extension west is undoubtedly a project of that railway system. It 1b the understanding that the line will be ready for operation by early fall, when the rush of crop and stock shipments begins. A few enterprising men have already begun preparations for moving their buildings, and when the right time cornea ' there will grow up in a night, almost, fc city between here and the Missouri rive* that will astonish any one but a Western man. Plans for all sorts of business enterprises are on foot. Every train brings strangers who are trying to buy the j much coveted land between here and th* i Missouri, and throughout the "Blue ; Blanket" country, but much of it is being held by the wise ones who scented the boom months ago. The soil of the Blue Blanket country Is a rich, black loam, fitted to successfully raise almost any crop. There has never been a failure of cereals. The whole country west oi Bowdle and to the river Is unequaled fo*grazing purposes; the development of the stock-raising interests in the past fev> years has been Blmply remarkable. Bangor, the county seat of Walworth j county, is the principal point between Bowdle and the river. Its future existence depends, of course, upon the policy of the railroad. A new town on the Missouri is certain to spring up and will become a flourishing trading post. Loraln-Wheellns Bond Issue. CLEVELAND, 0., Feb. 24.—A meeting of the stockholders of the Cleveland.
