etc., for several days, and for that
reason the editor believes that they
should be given a chance to partake
of those things without the thought
of going to work afterwards. After

things he isn't worth a rap any how

There used to be a time when the
democrats raised a big howl because
the republicans had more money to
pend than they did and pointed out
this fact to show that the use of money
in the elections was not right. Hut
during the past election it has been
shown that the demiocrats of the state
of Nebraska used more money than
did the republicans, and right here
in Cass county the amoumttf money
used by the democrats was far in

The Journal recites a case of a gen

two years ago and then a few days
ago bought another one just like it
for $20. Tariff. That is nothing.
Under a democratic administration
wc didn't have money enough to buy
an overcoat, but under a republican
administration we own two overcoats
and another which we loaned a dem

returned it. More tariff.
The Nebraska State Capital pub
lishes an advertisement this week
iaying "The first picture is that of a
telephone girl built of steel," and then
follows the picture of a mighty pretty
telephone girl who to look at looks to
be the real thing and no cold steel
about her. Either the editor of the
Capital has gone blind or else is too
old to tell the difference between a
pretty girl and a piece of pig iron.
It may, look like small business

We hac seen nothing in the state

of $22,1 UO had yet. been liquidated.'
Hope, however, that it is not growing
for it would be very discouraging
after the republicans have paid off
the old debt that had been standing
for many years to have the democrats
come in and start another one.
President Taft was presented with
a sixty pound turkey, a fifty pound
mince pic and a twenty pound possum
for bis Thanksgiving dinner yesterday.
We trust that he had enough of the
other fixings that are usually found on
a Thanksgiving table so he would
be able to make out a good meal
and not have to go hungry to bed.

TAKES FIRST FALL

Hour Chase About Enclosure.
The following from Nebraska City
will be interesting to readers of the
Daily News and we publish it in full:
"Marshall T. Harrison, who served
in the legislature as a representative
between Cass and Otoe counties, and
who is one of the largest stock raisers
and farmers of this county and who
resides near Dunbar, had a thrilling
experience a few days since, which he
will never forget and which he
came near losing his life. He pur
chased several cars of hogs down in
Missouri some nionthw ago which to
fatten and put on the market and one
of the ""rail splitters," a sow, got out
of the pen and made her escape into
a corn field where she was allowed to
remain for about six weeks. Mr. Har
rison finally concluded to go out and
try and locate the missing animal. Be
cause of the recent rains and wet
spells the ground was very soft and
every step he sunk into the earth
from four to six inches. He located
Another Victim of the Great Game
Added to the List.
WAS NOT KILLED
BUCKING THE LINE
Could Not Attend Game and Hung
Himself to Bed Post.
DKS MOINKS. Nov. 27. The
game of foot ball claimed another
victim Thanksgiving day, but not
in the usual way. Harold Perkins,
a sixteen year old lad, asked his aunt
if he could attend the Drake-Ames
foot ball game and was refused. He
went to the piano and played a few
minutes, then arose and went to his
room. Half an hour later he was found
by a younger brother hanging to the
bed post with hi.s neck broken. It
is supposed that he wished to alarm
his aunt, and that he had no intention
of killing himself, supposing that he
would be found before any serious
harm had come to him. His neck
was probably broken by the fall. .''
Eating an Apple.
"Do you know what you're eating,"
said the doctor to the girl.
"An apple, of course."
"You arc eating," said the doctor,
"albumen, sugar, gum, malic acid,
gallic acid, fiber, water and phosphor
"I hope those things arc good.
They sound alarming."
"Nothing could be better. You ate,
I observed, rather too much meat at
dinner. The malic acid of apples
neutralizes the excess of chalky matter
caused by too much meat, and thereby
helps to keep you young. Apples are
good for your complexion; their acids
drive out the noxious matters which
cause eruptions. They are good for
your brain, which those same noxious
mutters, if retained, render sluggish,
oreover, the acids of the apple di
minish the acidity of the stomach
that comes with some forms of indi
gestion. The phosphorus, of which
apples contain a larger percentage
than any other fruit or vegetable,
renews the essential nervous matter
of the brain and spinal column. Oh,
the ancients were not wrong when
thet' esyeemed the apple the food of
the gods the magis renewcr of youth
to which the gods resorted when they
felt themselves growing old and feeble.
I think I'll have an aple," concluded
the doctor. Xew York Tribune.

I TO THE SHERIFF
Climax of Week's Quarrel Between
Members of a Bridge Gang.
VALENTINE, Neb., Nov. 24.
Last night about six o'clock Charles
McArthur, a young man employed
on the, bridge gang of the North :
western railroad, was killed by a com
rade,, 1-lwdurd Bell.
The "two men hud been quarrel
ing for more than a week and Bell
had been carrying a revolver most
of the time. Yesterday the quarrel
was renewed after the two men reached
town and McArthur went to a hard
ware store and purchased a revolver.
Bell claims to have shot in self defense
and gave himself up to the sheriff
immediately' after the shooting.
No one seems, to know at this time
just wo.wus the first man to draw
his gun. The coroner's inquest will
probably bring out the facts in the
case. " '

After reading the public statement
of this representative citizen of I'latts
mouth, given below, you must come to
this conclusion: A remedy which cured
years ago, which has kept the kidneys
in good health since, can be relied up
on to perform the same work in other
cases. Read this:
J. W. Hickson, Oak Street, riatts
mouth, Nebr., says: "I will never
cease to praise Doan's Kidney Pills,
as they were of such great benefit to
me several years ago. My kidneys and
back were a source of constant suffer
ing and I was subject to attacks of
lumbago that came on without the
least warning. The simplest move
ment was painful and I was anoyed
more or less by the irregular passages
of the kidney secretions. I read so
much about Doan'r. Kidney Pills, that
I finally procured a box from Gering &
Co. 's drug store. I was so gratified
with the results of their use that I
publicly endorsed them in 1906 and at
this time, I heartily renew that state
ment. I hope that other kidney suf
ferers will profit by my experience."
