have lost one-fourth or 25 per cent of
your crop." Watch this and see.

THE TUCKER JURY LAW
i The Supreme Court Declares the Same tO;
I The supreme court has held that the
new Tucker jury law affecting all
; counries outside of Douglas, Lancaster
i and Gage counties is unconstitutional
; and has denied the application of Jov.
. Mickey for a mandamus to compel the
canvassing board of Mcpherson county
! to proceed under the law in the prepa
ration of a jury list. The governor
i acted on the advice of the attorney
general for the purp-i.se of testing the
law. which lias been iouna to ue so
! defective that it could not be applied.
:T!mnin!nHlP raw will ho tiWl
later by the entire court.
The main defect in the statute
which was offered in the legislature
by Senator Tucker of Richardson
county, was the provision requiring
the division of the number of voters
by the number of precincts in the
county to obtain the quotient which
was to serve as the basis for the selec
tion of names from a list. The state
legal department claimed that in
most instances this resulting quotient
would be a fraction and that it was
physically impossible to use it in pick
ing out the names on the list. Other
features of the act were also found to
be inoperative because of vagueness.
The invalidation of this act will
leave the counties affected free to re
sort to the old law in choosing juries.
Because of the uncertainity as to the
act practically all criminal prosecution
have been delayed in the eighty-seven
counties effected, so as to permit the
court to pass on the validity of the
During the legislative session,
Tucker claimed that the jury bill was
backed by the state bar association,
but local members denied any Respon
sibility. The attorney general was un
able to find any precedent in other
states throwing any light on the pe
culiar method, adopted by the framer
of the act in selecting the jurors.

years a prominent factor in the up

and who was a stanch supporter of the

many years a resident of Plattsmouth
and did his share toward building up
this city. The Coates block, for many
years called the Fitzgerald block, is
one of the evidences of his enterprise

HEAVY RAIL LAYING

Long Distanca West cf the Missouri, j
The Lincoln division of the Buri-'

jear contemplated placing eighty-live
pound rails for a distance one hundred
miles west of Sutton, taking the heavy
track beyond Iloldrege in Phelps
county. Other parts of the main line
on the McCook division were to be
treated to heavy rails and trackmen
have been placing these during the
summer, but it is not known just how
far the work has progressed on the
the lines west of the Lincoln division.
It is known, however, that the work
has been pushed along as rapidly as
possible with the amount of labor pos
sible to secure.
The old rails taken up have been
brought to Lincoln, or taken to Ash
land to be used on the reat Northern
extension. The best of the old rails
are used on the Great Northern line,
while the lighter and inferior rails are
brought to this city where they will
be used for building passing tracks
and in rebuilding yards.
From the fact that a great deal of
new line is to be built next year, and

Japanese in the United States.
The government of Japan sent sev
eral experts to the I'nited States to
study the handling of meat in the
stock yards, wishing to induce the
people to eat some beef in place of rice
which forms the invariable diet there.
The opposite condition prevails here,
our people eating too much meat, more
than the body needs and wants. This
causes dyspepsia, blood diseases, ner
vousness and premature decline. It
is true that we have here Triner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine which
speedily relieves and cures all these
difficulties, but still we wish to im
press upon our countrymen to eat less
meat, especially those not working
physically or in the fresh air. Triner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine stim
ulates and strengthens the stomach to
stand more work. It gives good appe
tite, a healthy sleep, a thorough diges
tion, strong nerves and muscles a pure
and rich blood, perfect health. At
