well-tanped leather, that's tho
reason. It does moro than shine
it wears, it tits, it "feels pood"

It's a shiner, t stayer, a soother.

PUTTING UP A PRESCRIPTION
Is careful work. Decrepit, aged
drugs won't do. They must be young
and fresh full of life and strength
for the sick. They must be pure and
they must be carefully put together.
We make a specialty of putting up
prescriptions we can doit better than
the man who doesn't make a specialty
of it. If you want careful, thoughtful
work, come to F. G. Fricke & Co's.
We aUo keep here the choicest
toilet supplies, and other requisites,
and quote prices that cnnot bo dis
counted in the country.
MttntlMte roin the hur-me Court Not
Ke'lv"l In Oiuiihit.
"Forty days from the rising of tho
court," at the sitting of which Joseph
S. IJarllov was condemned by llio su
premo tribunal of Nebraska to under
go tho Hentenco and penalty passed
upon him by tho district court in
Douglas county, expiro today, sayo
tho Omaha Moo. Those forty days
were sunnosed to limit tho timo of
Hartley's fctay in tho Douglas county
jail; but ho will bo among us, though
uot of us for yet a few days. Sheriff
McDonald has as yet received no
copy of tho mandate irom the su
premo court ordorinir the removal of
tho prisoner from the jail to tho peni
tentiary, and it is apparent that ho
will not for some davs to come. Last
week Lartlev s attorneys hied a mo
tion for a rehearing with tho supreme
court, and this matter remains to bo
parsed upon. It is understood thr.t
Clerk Campbell of tho supreme court
rules that the Ciing of tho motion acts
as a stop to the issuance of the man
date necessary to carry tho soutenco
into effect, and that there will be no
issue until the motion has been dis
posed of by the court.
At the time tno sup erne court
handed down its opinion .tfiirmii g tae
finding and sentence of the lower
court there were rumors that Hartley
would make an attempt to escape from
custody of tho sheriff. It was said
that he might take advantage of tho
degree of liberty that was accorded
him during his appeal to the supreme
court and mako his escape from th
county jau. incse rumors nave to
iar proved groundless. w uen the
sentence of tho trial court was al-
lirmed. Hartley was shorn of his priv
ileges and was lemoveti to the .strong
est part cf the jail. Ho was given no
special consideration whatever. While
his st:iy in Omaha may bo a little
more prolonged, he will bo kept as
secure as any other of the men d
tained against their will in jail.
Chatted a. Wolf.
Engineer Moore of the Schuyler

wolf last Saturday as he pulled his
train toward Ashland about two miles
mis sioe ot the town. ino woll was
ono of the big gray fellows and he
rather liked the middle of the track,
and did not care to give it up to tne
iron norso. tm seemed to get over
the ground at a lively pace, and the
engineer opened the trottle wido and
then for a half miie no wolf in Ne-
DrasKa ever ran taster. .Moore says
ho would have caught the annimal in
a few rods mote, its it was giving out.
but it dodged off at the side of the'track
just in time to escape tho wheels. Its
hair was all on end, making it look as
large as a sheep, and had it been
night time and Frank had been afoot
ho probably would have taken bis
wolfship for a boar. Ho says rabbits
are often killed by tho engine in at
tempting to cross the track ahead of
it, but he never killed but one woif,
and ho caught that one on a br.dge.
