LOTS OF TROUBLE.
A Countiymnn from Cliffoid Goes tho
l'iollle Wells, big, halo and forty,
came to t'aibnndulc on Friday to do
the town, and as a icsult he was called
to do time under Jail Warden Kllleen's
watchful can-. Wells started out on it
grand thicc days' Jamboree and right
merrily did ho carry on his task. Dur
ing the time hi' got Into many unto
wanl situations, and Is now minus his
money and it twcnty-llvc dollar gold

well-known young blonds" of tho
town, a female Included, look a Jaunt

particular t'aln was to pay. n Main
stteet tlie faiiupf got rather boister
ous In wouls and unsteady In actions,
and I'atiolmnii Mi-Audicw took him hi
tow. As Wells was lugged Into the
jail ho thought he saw bicycles In the
air. Hy ycsteulay morning, he had got
over his hiilluclnallou, however, and
was given a hearing befoio Mayor Kll
patriek.who lu a fatheily way "drilled"
him for his unbecoming conduct and
told him to go home. Wells, however,
wanted his watch, and went out on a
silll hunt for his companions of tho
hack ible. He got their names and
soon had warrants Issued for their ui
lest, So far, however, they have sue
I'eeiled in eluding the constable, but In

After sweuilng to the Infonnatlon,

Tribune, was ludtl yesterday after
noon, At .1 C'clock, flow A. F, Chaffee,
pHHtor of tho I'iist Methodist lSplsoo
pal chinch, conducted services at tho
house on Brook street. Desplto the In
clemency of the weather there was n
very large attendance, showing the high
and general esteem In which the dead
man was held. In order that his for
mer associates nt tho locomotive shops
might attend the funeral, tllat Institu

Literary society was held last evening,
when a mock trial was held. Owing to
the bad state of the weather, theio
was not u largo audience, but those
present, certainly, greatly enjoyed the.
affair. The contesting attorneys used
many odd arguments In trylni? to
cither prove or refute the guilt of the
accused, and whether or not they con
vinced the honorable Judge and tho
fair Jury, they did create a furore In
the court room. The tipstaff was leni

the fun continued. The literary soci

Kan., whoso fame is u national ono, says of I'eiuna.
My Dear Doctor "It gives; me pleasure to testify to the excellent cur
ative qualities of your medicine Pertina nnd IManalin. I have been af
flicted more or less for a quarter of a century with catarrh of the stomach
and constipation. A residence in 'Washington has inci eased theso
tioubles. A few bottles of your medicine havo given me almost com
plete relief, nnd I am sine that a continuation of them will effect a per
manent cirre. Peruna Is surely a wonderful remedy for catanhal affec
tions." J. D. Botkln, Congiessman-at-Largo.
CONC.UKSS.YIAN liUTKIN Is one of
the most Inlliientlal ami host
known men in the State of Kan
sas. Whatever he may say on any
subject will be accepted by the people

I'eiunn could not have well escaped
tin- attention of so famous a man. He
not nnlv has heard of the remedy,
but he has used It and v as relic veil or
an allllctlon of tweuly-llvo years'
standing. I'ei-una 1st tin- one Intoiual
teincdy that cures chronic catarrh. It
1'Uies c.ttanh vvheiever located. This
Is a fact that tlie people; aio lapldlv
llndlng out, but thero aie still a large
multitude who need to know It.
Mr.Frank Itlchter, of Winona, Minn ,
says, In a letter to the I'eiuna Medi
"Ah a remedy for oataiih I take'

catarrh of the stomach. I know what
It Is to boallllitcd with this awful ills
case and consider It my duty lo say a
word In behalf of the remedy which
gave me such relief. I'oi-una imiiccI me-,
and I know It will cure any one else
who suffers fiom this disease, it gives
me great pleasure to testify to (he
curative effects ol' tbl medicine. IV
runu Is a well tested and freeiuently
iiscel remedy, and for catarih of the
stomach It Is unsurpassed.
"My e-ataiili was principally located
In my head and stomach. 1 tiled many
remedies without success. T tiled sev

The rjastllc julo Is secreted by the
mucous follicles of the stomach. When
this Juice Is nurmiil It digests (dis
solves) tho food without piodui-lng any
disturbance whatever. If, hovvevei, the

causes many ellsugreeabb- symptoms.
