The Automobile Law.
Hy request of several of the Journal's
farmer friends we publish below sev
eral sections of the law enacted by
the legislature of Nebraska last winter,
and which has reference to the regula

upon the highway or streets. It seems
that some of those who are so fortun
ate (or unfortunate) as to own one of
these machines, have been defying the
law and appropriating such portions
of the highway as they deem to them
selves proper. And the farmers deem
it proper that they respect the law,

What Mr. Galus Says.
Mr. H. (lalus, of Duncan, Neb., says:
'I used several bottles of Triner's
American Elixir of Hitter Wine widen
1 consider the best remedy in the
world for my illness. It strengthens
my appetite and gives a refreshing
sleep, besides it takes the place of
tatle-w ine." Thousands of those hav
ing used this excellent preparation,
say the same. It is the best remedy
for the stomach, because it helps in
every instance. Wenever your diges
tive system will get out of order,
which is usually manifested by a poor
appetite and ioss of strength, you can
take no better remedy than Triner's
American Elixir of Hitter Wine. It
is pure grape-wine with bitter herbs,
the ideal remedy for diseased stomach.
You can give it to children as well as
to old people. At drugstores. Jos.
