statement made by Captain Fritz Du

"and it is highly probably every mem

his veins. It may not develop until
they reach Europe or even America.
It is positively dangerous to allow
Mr. Roosevelt and his party to return
to this country without having a bac

"If either the African fever or the
sleeping sickness should attack one of

it wou'd spread everywhere. I am
forced ti believe that the Roosevelt
party must be infected with one
of these deadly maladies'. If it es

party gets to Europe either African
fever or the sleeping sickness will
break out, among them."

Discuss Many Methods for the
Betterment of the Club and
' The adjourned meeting of the com
mercial club at the usual place last
night was an important one from
many standpoints. While there was
not very much business transacted
which would show up big in the line
of bringing business to the city, many
other matters were discussed which
will tend to help immensely in the
A motion was passed instructing
the secretary to make application
to join the state association and to
pay such fees as was necessary to

the club, and a resolution was passed
verbally that in the future if members

'TWAS EVER THUS
BUT WHY IS IT.
The Same Old Game Which Al
ways Works So Successfully
A man and woman, who have been
running an auction of jewelry and
other cheap junk in the' Thompson
building, closed their place of business
last week, after a successful business
in cur city. It is estimated that they
disposed of over 75 cheap watches
at fancy prices besides a various
assortment of other cheap jewelry.
One man it is said purchased three
watches. Another found that his
had stopped before ho reached home.
Why it is that people will patronize
these people instead of the home
merchants, who keep reiablc goods
and are always here to make good
anything that is wrong will always
be a mystery but such is the case in
every town. What the village board
should do is to impose such a heavy
tax upon this class of fakers that
they will fiht shy of the town.
This is being done in many Nebraska
town and in all rases ha3 the desmd
effect. Our merchants ore entitled
to all the prcteetina hc village au
thorities can by law allow them.
