nothing for three days, nor permitted
the correspondents to wire what is go

is restincr. although he is possibly dis
posing his army for a reach after
Comma ndan General 1'otha. A block
ade of the wires owing to the crush of correspondence may account
for the scanty press dispatches. Some
telegrams tiled a week ago are only
just now arriving. Among these are
spirited descriptions of the fighting at
Klandsfontvin. According to one of
them the streets were filled with wom
en and children. Rifle-shots could be
heard everwhere. The British soldiers
would stop firing and Join in the ohase

Vouug Belvllle Still Io the Custody of
Kansas Authorities.
News received today from the super
intendent of the state reformatory in
Kansas indicates that the report which
was in circulation last week in regard
tj Elwin Belvilla was untrue. Jack
Djnson, on behalf of one of Belville's
relatives, wrote a letter of inquiry to
the superintendent of that institution
last Friday, and received the following
reply this morning:
Hutchinson, Kan., June 9. J. R.
Denson, Constable, Plattsmouth, Neb.
Dear Sir: In answer to your inquiry
about Belville I have to say that he is
still here and doing very well. He has
never escaped and we do not intend
that he shall. We do rot think that
he would attempt to run away if he
had a chance. Your information was
entirely wrong. Yours truly,
J. S. Simmons,

Last fall I sprained my left hip
while handling some heavy boxes.
The doctor I called on said at first it
was a slight strain and would soon be
well, but it grew worse and the doc
tor then said I had rheumatism. It
continued to grow worse and I could
hardly get around to work. I went to
a drug store and the druggist rec
ommended me to try Chamberlain's
Pain Balm. I tried it and one-half of
a 50 cent bottle cured me entirely. I
now recommend it to all my friends.

is good. De Witt's Little Early Risers

Johnny Likewise, the accommodat
ing clerk for Weckbach & Co., hired a
livery rig yesrerday and drove out to
Louisville to see his best girl. On the
way home in the evening, however, he
had a little accident which, for a time,
completely upset his presence of mind.
and he was decidedly thankful today
that he is among the living. A short
dist ince west of the poor farm the
animals began to run away, and it
seemed the more Johnny pulled back
on the lines the faster the horses per
sisted in going ahesd Roalizing that
something must be done quickly, he
turned them in the direction of a steep
embankment which spanned one side
of the road. This move, oerhape.saved
the vehicle from total destruction, but
the horses stopped so suddenly as to
throw Johnny several feet into the
air,and the force with which he struck
the ground gave him a bad shaking
up. The tongue ef the buggy was
broken, and John found it absolutely
necessary to walk the rest of the dis
tance about three miles. He is feel
ing very sore today as a result of the
shaking up he received, and is think
ing of hiring Uncle Ned Baker's horse
hereafter when he makes the trip to
Glorious News.
Comes from Dr. D. B. Cargile, of
Washita, I. T. He writes: "Four
bottles of Electric Bitters has cured
Mrs. Brewer of scrofula, which had
caused her great suffering for years.
Terrible sores would break out on her
head and face, and the best doctors
could give no help; but her ctre is com
plete and her health is excellent."
This shows what thousands have
proved, that Electric Bitters is the
best blood purifier known. It's the
supreme remedy for eczema, tetter,
salt rheum, ulcers, boils, and running
sores. It stimulates liver, kidneys and
bowels, expels poisons, helps digestion
builds up the strength. Only 50 cents.

M. M. Beal and B. L. Kirkham went
up to the vicinity of Swallow hill Sat
urday evening with a camping outfit.
Everything went well with them until
the storm came up about 10 o'clock and
then they had to make a lively scram
ble for shelter. They ' got under a
small iron bridge on the Burlingtou
track. This place served to shelter
them to them to some extent, but the
cold water persisted in dripping upon
them especially down their backs
and the hours they spent in that posi
tion were far from comfortable. They
finally managed to reach home about
2 a. m. , thoroughly drenched and ex
ceeding weary. The saddest part of
the experience, however, is the fact
that when they drove up to the camp-,
ing ground Sunday morning to get the
outfit they wore unable to find any
trace of it some one having taken ad
vantage oj their absence to carry it off.
They had set out a number of lines the
previous night, and they are qu'te cer
tain the thief must have removed four'
or five hundred pounds of fish from
these lines. Messrs. Beal and Kirk
ham had looked forward with much
pleasure, and the proverbial fisher
man's luck which has attended them is
to be deeply regretted.
Would Not Suffer So Again For Fifty
Times Its Frice.
I awoke last night with severe pains in
my stomach. I never felt so badly in
my life. When I came down to work
this morning I felt so weak I could
hardly work. I went to Miller & Mc
Curdy's drug , store and they rec
ommended Chamberlain's Cholic,
Cbob ra and Diarrhoea Remedy. It
worked like magic and one dose fixed
me all right. It certainly is the finest
thing I ever used for stomach trouble.
I shall not be without it in my homo
hereafter, for I should not care to en
dure the sufferings of laBt night again
for fifty times its price. G. II. Wil

Charles II. Marks, while acting in
the capacity of nurse at the Second di

at Santiago de Cubas, used a few bot
tles of Chamberlain's colic, cholera

and found it to work like a charm. For
sale by all druggists.
