KICKING ON DEMURRAGE!
Waat is Sauce for the Goosa Should be
Sauce far the Gander.'
Shippers, the lumber and m',i
and others who ship in merchandise
ty the car lots, are up in arms at the
policy that is manifested hy tin rail
roads iti charging demurrage when
the cars an: not emptied strictly on
j the dot. It seems that the railroads,
j have organized a hureau. the especial
J duty of which is to have charge of the i
demurrage charges. Allot the roads I
are into the comhinat ion and as the)
officers of the demurrage bureau are
compensated for their work in propor
tion to the charges that they collect
the charge is rigidly imposed There
is no discretionary power left w ith the I
local station agent and if he fails to
lect the charges lie must make the
sum good out of his own pocket. The
purpose of referring the matter to a
common bureau is very apparent as
being to the best interests of the
roads. There can be no more leniency
displaced by one agent than another
and for t his reason no road will have
an undue advantage at a competing j
point, of course the demurrage bur-j
eau is created ny me railroads, oi me
railroads and tor the lailn-ads. It is
merely a wheel within a wheel where
by they can shirk a bit more responsi
bility upon t In- shoulders of someone
that wil stand between them and the
public. Hut aside from being expen
sive and annoy in to the shippers it
lays undue weight upon the shoulders
of the local agents. It may seem a bit
queer that when a shipper is com
pelled to wait six weeks for a car of
coal or lumber that is consigned and
loaded not iJuu miles away that he
shall bo compelled to get such a hurry
on him when the car arrives.

About the Tongue. !
I Look at vour toncue in the morninir
and you often will notice a change in
the color or a coatiny: the tongue will
show the condition of your health.
Whenever it is coated, vour stomach
is out of order and you need Timer's
American F.lixir of IitterVine.be-

stomach, i ou will perceive a beneti-
eial effect from the very first dose: the
stomach will become stronger and
aeti-ve. It strengthens the intestines
and carries the digestion to the suc
cessful and designated by nature to
the formation of new and perfectly
pure blood. No other remedy does
that. If your complexion is pale, yel
low or muddy, or if you have erup
tions, loss of appetite, nausea, vomit
ting, or any other condition calling
for purifying the blood and strength
ening the stomach, use Triner's Amer
ican Elixir of Bitter Wine. At drug

Pirating Foley's Honey and Ter.
Foley kv Co.. Chicago, originated
Honey and Tar as a throat and lung
remedy, and on account of the great
merit and popularity of Foley's Honey
and Tar many imitations are offered
for the genuine. These worthless im
itations have similar sounding names.
Beware of them. The genuine Foley's
Honey and Tar is in a yellow pack
age. Ask for it and refuse any substi
tute. It is the best remedy for coughs
and colds. F. C. Frieke & Co.

FORMER RESIDENT OF PLATTSMOUTH
Just How Close Relation Prisoner Bears to
Richards and Comstock Remains to
be Shown in Court.
The following is from the Omaha
Pee of this mornim.', and has reference
to a former Plattsmout h citizen:
"A. I. Todd is under arrest at Ien
ver under a warrant sworn out by the
Fnited States authorities of Omaha
charyiny him with subordination of
perjury in securing fraudulent land
tilings from old soldiers and others
within the Siade ranch enclosure of
approximately juo.nuo acres in Sheri
dan and ( berry counties, Nebraska,
which is owned and controlled by the
Partlttt Pichards and W. Coin
stock land and cattle syndicate. The
secret service ayents of tie- govern
ment under the direction of Special
Ayent Wheeler have been on the trail
of Todd for some weeks, but he has
managed to elude arrest until Monday,
when he was located and a i rested at
Denver, and now awaits the action of
the federal authorities there for his
removal to Nebraska.
Todd will be arraigned before I'nited
States Commissioner Anderson of
Omaha, who issued the warrant for
his arrest. Incriminating letters were
found in Todd's possession that show
the collusion of prominent land hold
ers, indicating Todd was acting for
them. Just how far Part let t Pichards
and W. (I. Comstock may be connected
with the matter remains to be .shown.
Todd is a former Nebraskan, his
home beintf at Plattsmouth, and he is
j rc ,,arded as one of the smoothest of
!the land ayents of land grabbers in the
country. He will be brought to Omaha
