Physicians tell us that ail
the blood in a healthy
human body passes through
the heart once in every two
minutes. If this action be
comes irregular the whole
body suffers. Poor health
follows poor blood ; Scott's
Emulsion makes the blood
pure. One reason why
is such a great aid is because
it passes so quickly into
the blood. It is partly di
gested before it enters the
stomach; a double advan
tage in this. Less work
for the stomach; quicker
and more direct benefits.
To get the greatest amount
of good with the least pos
sible effort is the desire of
everyone in poor health.
Scott's Kmulsion does just
that. A change for the
better takes place even be
fore you expect it.

The Wheat Crop 0. K.
We have talked with numerous farm
ers during the past week relative to
the condition of the wheat. Without
an exception they all agree that the
wheat has passed through the winter
apparently without Injury or winter
killed in the least, and with the pres
ent condition the ground is In the
fields will get an early start and the
prospects for a bumper crop of wheat
never has been equalled in Cass county.
A Conflagration Prevented.
A disastrous lire was prevented
.Saturday at John Ilirz's place five
miles northwest of town, by the timely
discovery of the blaze by one of his
boys. The shingles had caught fire In
some manner, and the roof was threat
ened for a short time on account of
the strong wind that was blowing, but
with several buckets of water the
flames were extinguished.
Iowa Town Up Against It.
G. W. Alexander, mayor of Chariton,
Iowa, is in the Inebriate asylum at
Knoxville, and the other day the city
Clerk was sent over with a request for
the mayor to resign. This Alexander
refused to do, and the superintendent
Of the asylum says he caunot get out

LITTLE COMMON SENSE TALK
"Do Unto Others as Yon Would Hate Oth
ers Do Unto You."
Here are a few timely tlmu'liU for
tbe riattstuouth merchants to ponder
over, which may prove beneficial to
some of them:
"It you sell groceries to Mr. Smith,
It is only natural that Mr. Smith
should expect you to buy meat In his
"IsiTt that perfectly fair? Well,
then, If you earn your living In l'latts
mouth, Is It unfair to expect you to
spend what you can of It here? Many
of those who do their shopping out of
town do so thoughtlessly.
"If your brother sells furniture you
wouldn't go into an Omaha store to
buy a chair Just because it looked pret
ty and cheap In the show window,
"Wouldn't you say to yourself: My
brother can get me that chair Just as
cheap. I couldn't think of getting it
from any one else?
"If you have to live and earn a liveli
hood in riattsmoth, every other per
son who is similarly situated Is your
brother, lie can get It for you just as
cheap, mi matter what it is, and will
do it if you request It."
This is the season of the year when
the congressmen are busily engaged In
ordering, seeds from the government
department sent to theirconstitticncy,
and every mail brings large quantities.
This reminds us of a story told us yes
terday morning at the postofllee when
one of our cltl.ens drew forth from his
box a large package of those "vote-getters."
He didn't want them and threw
them away. He told us that a few
years ago he received several packages
and among them was a package labeled
turnipseeds. His wife coaxed him to
sow them, which he did, expecting to
raise enough to last him through the
winter. He visited the patch several
times, and he noticed that they did
not spread out like turnips, but grew
In length. One day his wife told him
to gather a mess and she would try
them. He did so, and after boiling
them an hour or so, instead of getting
soft, they really became harder, and to
this day lie lias never lieen able to tell
what kind of seeds they were. Since
that experience he says he don't want
anything more to do with government
seeds. They are a fraud of the first
water, and the Journal is pleased to
know that this great graft which has
existed as a benefit to congressmen in
the way of making the farmer believe
they arc remembered "for their past
favors." is going to t e a thing of the
past by the discontinuance of this de
partment by the government.
Returned from California.
A. J. Graves, who went to Califor
nia several months since in the hopes
that a change of climate would benefit
his health, returned home Wednesday
For a few weeks Mr. Graves seemed to
Improve, and had great hopes that he
would finally recover, but lie was
doomed to disappointment, hence his
return. His many friends in l'latts
mouth and in Cass county regret his
decline in health and still have hopes
for the best.

of returning their most sincere and
heartfelt thanks to those kind friends

A report came to tbe county clerk
Saturday that the family of Carl
Anton, who live in the north part of
town, were In very destitute clrcum
stances, and that Carl has gone from

own life several years ago, and falling

received no word from him until Satur

the scene. Mrs. Anton has been sick
and has two little children to care for

the necessities of life. The county
clerk ordered provisions and fuel to be

Every Claim is Backed by Local Testi
If the reader wants stronger proof
than the following statement and ex
perience of a resident of I'lattsmouth,
what can it be?
II. M. Young, city bill poster of
Sixth street, says: '"Mrs. Young was
constantly complaining of a dull pain
across the small of her back which in
creased if she overexerted herself or
contracted cold. Later it was contin
uous, or one attack seemed to succeed
another so rapidly that just as one was
leaving she dreaded the return of an
other. She used more than one remedy,
but it was like throwing money away
as far as benefit from the treatment
was concerned. 1 had read In news
papers about people suffering like her
where Doan's Kidney I'ills had been
used with very good results and this
Influenced me to goto (lerlngcv Co.s

A Tough Old Town.
Omaha needs a change In the ad
ministration of affairs about as much
as any city in the land. Something Is
radically wrong In the police force.
Last night just a few moments before
the hour of 10 o'olock Frank Clark,
manager of the llrandlcs & Sons bank,
was shot down in the attempt to free
himself from footpads while on his
way home to his wife and children.
And had It not been for the timely aid
of a couple of men who happened near
he would have been murdered and the
bank looted. Where was the police'
man on that beat during this occur
rence? While badly wounded Mr,
Clark was doing as well as could be
expected this morning. Murder and
robbery is of too frequent occurrence
in that city to lay claim that It Is well
governed. It is not. And a change
for the better must be brought about
by a change of administration.
There will be a teachers' examlna
tion held In tbe high school building
