Wealth of Cass County.
The Sunday World-Herald contained
a table compiled by Prof. A . K. la-
vi.sion, principal of the Agricultural
Department of the Slate University,
In which he (rives some comparative
figures pertaining to the wealth of
Nebraska by counties. In glancing
over the. table we glean the following
hVures in reference to Cass county:
Acres of land, 341,012; valuation, I2X-
529.82S; money on deposit, U,570,7.V.l;
valuation of stocks of merchandise,
!l,0tiH,300; valuation of live stock,
D13,42t; valuation of city and town
real estate, 3,16,310; valuation. of
farm products In 1893, 2,3",R2n. In
order to ascertain the value of laud
live hundred letter were sent out to
bankers in various counties. To as
certain the money on deposit, the re
port of the state banking board of 1902,
wm used for the state banks, and the
report of the comptroller of the cur
rency for 1903 Is used to get the
amount on deposit In national banks.
In finding out the stocks of merch?
dlse carried, the most eminent com
mercial authority was consulted, and
the figures on the stocks of merchan
dise in each county were obtained
through the best authority, as was al
so the valuations of other matters
Cass County Girls.
Evidently Cass county teachers do
not Bud any trouble in getting good
positions, no matter where they go.
Miss Eva Allison, daughter of James
Allison, of near Murray, has just been
re-elected principal of the Medford,
(Oklahoma), schools. In speaking of
the action of the board In this matter,
the Medford Star says:
At a meeting of the school board
held Tuesday all the present corps of
teachers were retained for another
year. Hits action upon the part or
the ixtard or education Is to be com
mended. It not only speaks well for
the schools but It Is a compliment to
the teachers. Miss Allison, as princi
pal, has won the good will of the pu
pils and the support of the patrons.
The assistant teachers nave also
worked hard for the success of the
schools. May the schools prosper.
The Allison girls, several of whom
are now engaged in teaching, are all
up-to-date In their chosen profession
and their services as such are eagerly
sought. They are not only at the top
round of the ladder as teachers, but
they are accomplished young ladies in
Weareshowinga magnificent line of
pattern hats, and exclusive styles, at
prices always the lowest.

The Opinion of a Great Man.
Samuel Smiles, the great old man
who recently died, one of the best ob
servers and philosophers, remarked in
Ills "Life and Labor:" "The scat of
dyspepsia and melancholy is in the
bruin as much as in the stomach. When
brain work is carried to excess the
whole system becomes pervaded by
nervous excitability; the heart Is af
fected as well as the stomach: all bod
ily functions are Imperfectly per
formed." The brain and the stomach
are connected together by the vague
nerve, and this Is the reason why the
suffering of one is transmitted to the
other, as also the cure of one means
the cure of the other. Triner's Amer
lean Elixir of Bitter Wine Is the pro
nounced specific for all maladies of the
stomach, and by curing this organ It
naturally cures the brain and the whole
system. It makes digestion perfect,
and as a result of this makes the blood
pure and rich. The medical science
now rejects all disagreeable medicines,
recommending In place of them vege
table extracts, combined with wine
Triner's American Elixir of Bitter
Wine is made of pure grape wine with
herbs. At drug stores. Jos. Triner

Governor Mickey's requisition on the

burglarizing a tailor shop In this city,
on Saturday night of the street fair,
brought back. The otllcers at Missouri
Valley have let the fellow get away.
He was released on bond, so it is said,

A Curs for Piles.
"I had a bad case of piles,'' says G
F. Carter of Atlanta, Ga., ''and con
suited a physician who advised me to
try a box of PcWItt's Witch Hazel
Salve. I purchased a box and was en
tircly cured. It Is splendid for piles,
giving relief instantly, and I heartily
recommend it to ail sufferers." Ie
Witt's Witch Hazel Salve is unequalled
for its healing qualities. Eczema and
other skin diseases, also sores, cuts,
burns and wounds of every kind arc
quickly cured by It. Sold by F. G.
