A back that aches all day and causes
discomfort at night Is usually worse

"I never had medicine which gave me
the permanent benefit i derived from
Doan's Kidney Pills. My kidneys
caused me much suffering and In
convenience. I did not have sharp
pains, but there was a dull tired feel

a great deal of tha time for a couple of
years. If I stopped or straightened
my back It would hurt and In the
morning when I would rise, I was as
tired and unrcfreshed as when 1 re
tired. The secretions from the kid

by their high color and too frequent
action. This annoyance was most

,VERE THEY DISCHARGED?
From Al Hence Says
Hill Was Felt.
A special from Alliance says that
on tho night of September 2i a tele
gram was sent from Newcastle, Wyo.,
to James J. Hill complaining of the
service on the Burlington, referring to
Mr. III11 In uncomplimentary terms,
and signed "The Dear People." The
This telegram was sent 'D. II.'
from Newcastle at about D o'clock at
night and was delivered to Mr. Hill In
St. Paul, He got busy at once and
wired to all the superintendents to
discharge all the operators who had
anything to do with the receiving and
transmission of the message. One op
erator at Newcastle, two here, two at
Omaha, two at Chicago, and one at
St. Taul, have already received their
walking papers and others are to fol-
ow. An Investigation Is being held
to And out who the sender of the mes
sage Is. It is supposed It was sent by
a traveling man buthow it came to be
deadheaded is not yet made plain."
Nothing Is known of such a hap
pening here and the Burlington peo
ple are inclined to doubt the authen
ticity of the story.

INHERITANCE TAX MATTER
Correspondent Says the. Same Was Started
by i Republican, and Not
by i Democrat.
The blowing communication ap
peared In the Sunday World-Herald,
and Irom w hat the correspondent says,
lie seems to know what he Is talking
I'lattsmouth, Neb., Sept. 27.-TO
the Editor of the World-Herald: In
this morning's World-Herald, I note
that Mr. George L. Sheldon makes a
defense to the "insinuation" that the
Sheldon heirs are endeavoring to
evade the payment of the Inheritance
tax due Cass county from their fath
er's estate. , It has been said that "a
poor excuse is better than none," and
certainly Mr. Sheldon has offered
nothing more here. Is It good busi
ness acumen to allow a claim to in
crease at 7 per cent per annum, when
there Is plenty of money on hand be
longing to the estate with which to
pay It, or when money could be bor
rowed at 5 per cent? It is said that
the personal estate, money, etc., has
beenMlvldcd or Is being divided out
side of c6urt, and this might have
been used to pay this tax.
And while the question of tax evas
ion Is being discussed It may be perti
nent to refer to another attempt to
evade the payment of a just tax. The
legislature of 1003, It will be remem
bered, passed an act known as the
"Scavenger . Act," the purpose of
which was to gather or clean up all
back taxes on real estate, and I pre
sume Mr. Sheldon, then a senator from
Cass, voted for the act. When the act
was put Into force in this county, Mr.
Sheldon, on behalf of bis father, was
one of the first ones to file an answer
In district court in (he state tax suit
of 1904, brought under the law with a
view to evading the payment of the
taxes claimed against the Sheldon
lands for the year 1861, amounting to
5500.86. with interest, alleelnir as a
reason for the non-payment of the tax
that the assessment was Irregular;
that the assessor appointed by the
county board did not give a bond, and
that the assessment was made by a
deputy appointed by the assessor and
not by the assessor In person. There
was no claim that the assessment was
ifnjust. They lost the case, as they
should, and paid the taxes that ought
to have been paid more than forty
years before. There are some people
in Cass county who see very little dif
ference, If any, in the defense put up
by Mr. Sheldon In the tax suit from
that made by the railroads in their at
tempt to evade the payment of their
just taxes. It may be said that this
is not the affair of Mr. George L.
Sheldon, republican candidate for gov
ernor, but his father's, but the writer
happens to know that Mr. George L
attended to all the business of the de
fense and attempt at evasion himself
Some republicans here feel sore that
this matter was stirred up against Mr
Sheldon, and for their benefit 1 will
state that It was started by a republi
can, who is anxious that wealthy peo
"pie pay their taxes. Your truly,
C. B. O.
Cupid is again , on the wing. This
time he has tired his dart at, and has
captured Mr. George W. Matthiasen
and led him to his shrine at the home
of Miss Maud May . Messersmith,
where they were united In the bonds
of holy matrimony by Eev. D. W.
Wilt, at 2 p. ra., last Tuesday.Sept. 2.1,
The ceremony, which was beautiful
In its simplicity, was witnessed by
about fifty invited guests, who after
ward partook ot delicious refresh
ments. The newly married couple
have gone to Denver to spend three or
four weeks. They will make their
home In Uavclock, where a property
has been : purchased by the groom,
The groom is a young man of thrift
and 'industry. . The bride is a young
woman of many accomplishments.

Runaway Last Night.
About 10 p. m. Thursday John
Gordcr was at the Burlington freight
house with -his team to load up some
freight. In dropping a bundle or
something In the bottom of the wagon
bed the horses became frightened and
dashed up Main street at a two-forty

grocery store, some heroic Individual,
whose name we failed to learn, jumped
Into the wagon, but falling to get
hold of the lines, which seemed to be
dragging on tho ground, ho Jumped

Football MUn Tonight
Now. that' the season Is on, the
skeptics begin to "get into the game,"
so to speak, in their way; their way
and aim is to try to discourage any en
thusiasm which may rise toward the
Now, whoare these skeptics? Well,
we all know who they are, generally,
persons who know little of the game.
You very seldom hear a person who is
familiar with the game trying to run
it down and for the reason that it is
the duty or these prejudiced persons
to Investigate and perhaps consider
before they make rash statements.
Acurate statistics compiled by an
ardent admirer and defender of both
base ball and foot ball show that there
are a larger percentage of casualties
credited to the game of base ball than
foot ball, (this Is an accurate state
ment and can be proved.) Yet at one
and the same time, foot ball Is de
pendent upon spirit It is played ln:the
better spirit the less brutality, and it
certainly cannot be denied that when
foot ball Is played in accordance with
tbe new rules, and In the right spirit
then is the danger reduced to a min
imum. Now, hoys, there will be a meeting
of all of you that are at all foot hall
inclined, at the Turner Hall tonight,
(Tuesday,) and get enthusiastic and
come out and help organize a team
that Plattsmouth skeptics will have
to admit Is all right. Come out allot
you, get enthusiastic, don't be a dead
one. Tonight at 7:30.

About three years ago J.A.White
fell on a sidewalk in Elmwood dislo
cating his right shoulder. A doctor
set the Injured member but ever since
the ligaments have been still so that
he could not raise his right hand high
enough to comb bis hair or take a
drink of water. Just two weeks ago
today ho was at work witli his bees,
The bees resented his intrusion into
their territory and stung him severely.
When the swelling went down James
discovered, much to his delight, that
the stiffness was all gone and that
once more he could clve the trrand
