To Get R!d of Rats and Mice.
As farmers are more or l:s bother
ed with rats and mice, we herewith
print a receipt which is .said to rid tlie
premises of these pests: if you will
sprinkle sulplmron your barn lioor and
through your corn, there will not be a
rat or mouse remain. Our authority
says he has done this for several years
and lias never been bothered with rats
or mice, lie further says, "l have
some old corn in crib at present and
not a rat or mc use is to lie found. In
stacking hay or outs sprinkle on the
ground and a little through :ach load,
and my wordforit, ratsand mice can't
stay there. A pound of sulphur will
be stillicient to preserve a large barn of
of corn and it is good forstoek and will
not hurt the corn for meal and bread."
DARIHG BURLARS RAID AVOCA
They Secure Quite a Haul, and Have So
Far Eluded Pursuit.
Friday night lust A viva, situated on
of the Auburn branch of the Missouri
I'acilic railruad.in the south part ofthe
county, was raided by burglars, and
from all accounts it was well-planned,
and no doubt by experienced cracks
men, w ho so far have eluded all pur
suit of theolllcers.
The general store of StelTens & Zim
merer was entered, and the safe blown
open by powder a hole .being drilled
from the top. The cracksmen here se
cured about $100 in cash and a gold
watch, then took theirdeparture with
out molesting anything else. The In
dependent Teleplono company has an
exchage in the room above tho store,
and it seems the jar rendered from the
explosion shook down the "drops,"
started an alarm which aroused nu
merous citizens of the village from
their peaceful slumbers. .
F. W. Iluggc's saloon wasalso broken
open, the money drawer torn from its
fastenings and thrown aside, but the
till was empty, as all the money was
removed on closing up, but nothing
else was disturbed.
The M. P. depot was the first place
entered and thesafoin the ticket oillce
drilled from the top, just as was after
wards done with StelTens & Zimmer
cr's safe, but from some cause their at
tempt here was abandoned. The pow
der was even placed in the hole, and
the fuse ready to be touched olT. One
dollar in pennies was taken from the
ticket counter money drawer.
SherilT Mcllride was prompt in an
swering the call, and proccded to A voca
at once. He In company with an M.
P. detective, tracked two suspicious
characters to Lincoln, thence to York
and Stormsbugh, overtaking them at
tlia latter place. Aftcrathorough ex
amination of these two young men it
was thought best not to arrest them
upon the very slim evidence in store.
SherilT Mcllride returned home Tues
day evening. He says there were no
blood hounds connected with the pur
suit whatever, lie also states that
the work might have possibly been
done by experienced cracksmen, but
rather thinks it was accomplished by
parties who well knew the surround
ings, and the SherilT has great hopes in
apprehending the guilty parties.

ANOTHER HI LETTER.
Charles W. Sherman, Former Editor of the
Journal, Wrltss Again to his Friend.
Si'itiNi Mkahow I:.mii, (near)
Klamath Kails) Ore., April 5.
My Dkak Old Fkiend:
Many thanks for the papers you sent
me. Heading the Journal was like
taking a peep into my old home. The
names in it were as familiar as the
read in; of an old book. Not getting
the paper regularly I have not kept
paee with all events there. Tor in
stance, I don't know what is meant by
the "Coates block," of which It speaks.
The publication of my letter lias
been the means of bringing to me let
teis of inquiry as to the possibility of
making homestead entries to lands in
this region; and that reminds me that
I was possibly not explicit enough or
clear enough in what I stated about
that. True it is that there are still
some vacant lands here that are avail
able for agricultural purposes, but
they are quite scarce, and none of the
best, and what arc left are bc-in-? picked
up very rapidly by incoming emmi
grants. What are left are scattered
one piece in a place. And it is also
true that lands that have been taken
heretofore are rapidly increasing In
price, so that the era of very cheap
lands, is about at an end. This is
caused by two reasons: The fact that
several irrigation schemes have recent
ly been projected along several of the
streams, with every prospect of suc
cess; and that two railroads are pro
jected into the Klamath basin. These
things have been noised abroad and
are bringing many new settlers in,
who are buying up the farms that are
fin-sale at advanced prices. One big
ditch that is to tap Klamath lake will
afford water to over 75.000 acres in
Klamath and Lost lliver valleys. This
ditch w ill enable the land owners to
raise alfalfa on every acre, and as the
alfalfa that is now grown iR,rc js 0f a
very superior quality, it will make a
great stockraising region of this, and
insure plenty of hay for vast herds of
cattle. Of course other crops w ill like
wise be benetlttcd.
If there are any of my friends in old
Cass county who want cheap lands in
this region they should come at once,
and not delay for such chances are di
I noted with pleasure what you said
in jour last letter about the pood re
sults of last fall's election in' Cass, and
hope you men will be able to repeat it
with interest this fall. 1 hope, too,
that the hope of success w ill nut blind
the eyes of Cass county democrats into
the fatal blunder of throwing away
their principles, for a victory even if
it should be won -on a non-committal
platform, would lie barren of good re
sults. Petter stand defeat fighting, for
true democratic doctrines than a vic
tory if won at the expense of real
democratic doctrines. While llooso-
velt and his party has surreniered to
the trusts It behooves real patriots to
keep up the light against these om
nivorous monsters, lest we lose our
liberties which cost so much blood and
treasure. The party in power having
thrown the constitution with its
limited powers, and the Declaration
of Independence, upon which it was
founded, to the dogs by and through
their Philippine colonizing project,
democrats should stand by the old doc
trines, and, if need be, die defending
the principles of free government.
That model democrat, Abraham Lin
coln, once said there was not a princi
pal of Ids political creed that was not
founded on the declaration of inde
pendence; and lie was right, lint the
party which tries to monopolize his
name, has thrown his doctrines to the
wiihis ail lor tlie sake of being a
"world power." And the misfortune
is they are teaching the young men to
despise the doctrine that "govern
incuts derive their just powers from
the consent of the governed," which
Mr. Lincoln revered as a cardinal prin
cipal of republican government. What
a far cry it is between Lincoln who
freed the slaves, and Enosevclt, who
has been killing olf men who loved
liberty so well that they were willing
to die for it.

the Council 15 luffs department of the
Omaha World-Herald of Saturday:
'The wills of William 15. l'orterand
his wife, Deborah, who died some time
ago, within a few days of each other,
were admitted to probate yesterday In
the district court over the protest of
the son. W. 15. Porter, jr., whowasdis
inherited as to most of the property.
The estate was given tothc daughters,
Ada U. F.cstor, Elizabeth J. Cooper,
Julia II. Hosier and Caroline N. Don
ley, with tlie exception of Mr. Porter's
claim now pending in the United
States court of claims against the
United States for compensation for
Indian depredations. Whatever is
realized from this is to be equally di
vided between the children."
DEATH OFJSEORGE BOECK,
A Former Resident of County Dies of Can
cer of the Stomach,
The remains of George lioeck, who
died in Kansas City on tlie 8lh Inst., ar
rived in this city on Sunday morning
over the liurlington, and was conveyed
to the home of his brother, Henry
lioeck. Tlie funeral occurred at 1:30
in the afternoon, the services being con
ducted by Judge J. C. l'oint.of OmaJia,
assisted by Kev. Uaird of this city. In
life Mr. lioeck was a great advocate
of the single tax question, and died in
tlie faith he so manfully advocated,
and it was his will that one who be
lieved in this doctrine should have
charge of the funeral services. Tills
is the principal reason why Mr. Point
ictcd in the capacity that he did.
The funeral was quite largely at
tended, as the deceased was know n to
many of the citizens of Plattsmouth
and surrounding country. After ser
vices at the house the remains were
laid at rest in Oak Hill cemetery.
The pall bearers were old time friends
of the deceased and consisted of the
following gentlemen: L. 15. Kgenber-
ger, A. li. Taylor, Ocorgc Scliocmann,
J. V. Kgcnberger, J. C. Peterson and
II. II. llcutte.
George lioeck was born in Germany,
coming to this country when a lad of
seventeen .years. He w as by trade a
blacksmith, which he followed until
lSiii), and built theshopon Fifth street
now owned by William llassler. For
a number of years Mr. lioeck owned
and farmed a half section of land,
which he sold when leaving this coun
try, for thirty-three and one-third dol
lars per acre. Tlie same today is worth
in the neighborhood of $100 per acre.
From here he went to Texas, where
he invested largely in real estate. He
remained In the Lone. Star state for
about three years. He traded his
Texas land (in Iowa county) for two
sections in Nemaha county, Nebraska
upon which his family still reside.
About one year ago lie was attacked
with cancer of the stomach. Some
time sines lle wcnt to Omaha and had
a portion of the cancer removed, and
for a time gained some relief. At tlie
time of his demise lie was in Kani-as
City receiving treatment for same.
Mr. J5oeck was sixty-nine years ofage
and lils wife and eight children three
girls and five boys-survive him, all of
the children being married except the
youngest boy. Three brothers also
survive him henry lioeck of this city,
Adam of St. Louis, and John, who still
lives In Germany.
Never too Late.
During a debate a middle aged gen
tleinan remarked that a man of his
age could not learn a language. Krylov
the Russian poet, made a wager that,
although being (18 years old, he could
learn Greek In two years. He won the
bet. lie was old, but full of energy.
We must not think only of years gone
by, but of those before us. We should
try to keep young. Triner's American
Elixir of Hitter Wine will renew the
blood, will regulate digestion, and
give new energy to the mind. IJeing
made of pure wine and selected herbs,
it contains no poisonous ingredients.
It acts on tlie stomach and the intes
tines, making the digestion perfect
and thus forming new, ricli blood.
This process is perfectly natural; medi
cines which upset the stomach cannot
purify the blood. Triner's American
Flixir of P.iltcr Wine cures every
stomach. At drug stores. Joseph
