Healthy Mucous Membranes.
Tlioso who are fortunate enough to
have perfectly healthy mucous mem
branes ordinarily do not catch the grip.
The mucous membranes lining the
nose, throat and lungs, when in a
normal state, are an effectual barrier
against the invasion of grip.
But, if there happens to be the slight
est catarrhal derangement of the
mucous membranes, then the victim be
comes an easier prey to the grip.
This in part explains why some peo
ple get the grip, while others do not.
The rational thing to do is to keep the
system free from catarrh. In attempt

Ths Probabilities Are That All Plans Under

It is believed that Burlington peo
ple in Lincoln will know in a few
days the extent of the retrenchment
order to be issued by that company.
Those who have discussed the matter
say that it will be a serious thins
and that a great deal of work will
be tied up. The reason most fre
quently given for this Is the action
of the legislature in passing" the two
cent fare bill. Further, it is said, that
not only the Burlington but that every
railroad in Nebraska will quit im
provement work and that will mean a
great deal, says the Lincoln Journal.
Information reached Lincoln yester
day that the I'nion Pacific is consid
ering abandoning much of the double
tracking" work now under way on its
main line west of Omaha. It is said
that other roads will cut down ex
penditures which have been planned
for the state and that work will be at
a standstill during the next two or
A Burlington discussing the man
effect of this bill says that service
will be cut wherever possible and that
the road will economize at every turn.
"There is nothing else left to be done,
and the people may not relish this,
but it can't be helped. The railroad
is just as anxious to (five service as
anyone is to get it, but it can't give
service where that service does not
A passeneer department official of
another road adds this: "If the legis
lators really wanted to do the pecple
some good why did they not tackle
freight rates and leave the passenger
fares alone. The people who enjoy
travel enjoy a luxury nine times out
often, barring of course commercial
travelers. Thecommercial houses get
a lower rate than three cents by buy
ing mileage books, and the mileage
rate would have been reduced to two
cents if the legislature had let it alone.
Every man who takes a pleasure trip
pays the fare after considering whether
he can afford the luxury, but the man
who pays the freight, the consumer
can't avoid the Nil. It comes to him
as a part of the cost of the neces
saries of life."
Railroad men declare that the action
of the railroads is not a bluff, and
that they are moved by business mo
tives in taking thi3 course. "They are
not trying to bulldoze the people,"
says one railroad man, "but they are

Experience has shown that the people
who use Peruna as a remedy for grip

liable to the distressing and long-con-

"When Peruna has not been used dur

finds himself suffering from the after
effects of this disease, a course of l'eruna
should be resorted to.

the members assembled at their hall
and held a farewell surprise party,
compiimetary to their fellow member,

move during the fore part of next week
to bis farm in Davies county, near
Jamesport, Missouri. The surprise was

Observe Last Tributes.
At 10 o'clock Friday morning, the last
tributes in memory of the late Miss
Julia McElroy, were observed at the
St. John's church. The services were
conducted by the pastor. Rev. W. F.
Bradley, in the presence of a large
gathering of relatives and friends,
whose many beautiful floral offerings
silently attested the esteem in which
the deceased was held during life
After an impressive service at the
church, the remains were conveyed to
the Iloly Sepulchre cemetery, followed
by a long procession of friends.
The pall bearers were Messrs Conrad
Gillespie, Chas. Guthman, Orville
Kinze, Angust Bach, Henry Styen-
dyke and Chas. Neiville.
Miss Julia McElroy was born in
Hastings, Nebraska, on the 23d day of
August, 1SS3, and has been a resident
of Plattsmouth for quite a number of
years, during which time she has won
the respect and admiration of all
whom she met. During this hour of
grief, the relatives of the deceased re
ceive the entire sympathy of the com
munity. The out-of-town friends who attend
ed the funeral were the following:
Mrs. Kate Bagley and daughter and
Miss Mary O'Fallon of Nebraska City;
Mrs. S. P. Morrison and son of Omaha.

POPE GETS S400 DAMAGES
Jury Awards Judgment for That Sum After
Being Out All Night.
SUIT AGAINST OBERLE FOR $5000
Result of Third Trial of Case Considered
Satisfactory to Both Plaintiff
The final arguments in the suit
brought by John U. Pope vs. George
Oberle for damages in the sum of $.5,000
for injuriessastained while intoxicated
with liquor, alleged, by plaintiff, to
have been purchased of the defendant,
were made late Thursday, and shortly
after 4 o'clock the case was submitted
to the jury, who, after being out all
night returned a verdict about 8
o'clock Friday morning, awarding the
Dlaintiff damages in the sum of $400.
The decision was arrived at by the
jury after being out about sixteen
hours, and when handed in by Fore
man Swearingen, the jury was dis
charged. The first trial of this damage suit,
resulted in a disagreement on the part
of jury after being out about twenty
four hours. A similar action brought
against Oberle by the children of John
U. Pope, was taken from a jury by the
court, as the evioence introduced,
failed to show that Pope's children
had suffered on account of the father's
disability, and in view of this fact, the
children were not entitled to any dam
ages. This action was instituted in
1002, and was soon followed by a
similar suit, brought by Pope himself,
against Oberle. As above stated the
jury could not agree, and were dis
charged, and a new trial ordered,
wherein the plaintiff was given judg
ment in the sum of $400.
The facts brought out in the trial
are that Pope, on the day the accident
happened, secured several drinks at
the defendant's saloon in Greenwood,
and later in the day, while intoxicated
he started home from town, and was
found with a badly fracturd limb, ly
ing in the road where he had evidently
fallen from the loaded wagon, which
had passed over him. The injuries
confined him to his home for several
months, and he is now crippled in that
The defense was represented by
Matthew Gering, while the piamtm
brought the action through C. A.
Rawls and Byron Clark. While the
jury was out last night, over twenty-
five ballots were taken before an
agreement on $400 could be reached.
It is understood that the decision
rendered by the jury is satisfactory to
both parties to the action.

Walt Mason, in the Beatrice Ex
press, speaks a truth or two about the
operation of the pure food bill which
has occurred to us a number of times,
and ought to be remembered by those
who labor under the delusion that the
pure food law means a great deal.
Mr. Mason says: "The pure food in
spectors, when they get fairly to work
pay special attention to those groceries
which are exposed for sale in front of
grocery stores. So far we don't see
where the pure food law is going to do
much good in protecting the people
from the common eatables which are
sold in cans and bottles. Take a bot
tle of ketchup, for instance; but the
manufacturer prints a guarantee on
the label, stating that the ketchup is
made of the finest tomatoes, and is ab
solutely pure, but it doesn't seem that
such a guarantee now is worth more
than it was worth in the past. Restau
rant and hotel men get hold of empty
bottles bearing the guarantee labels of
responsible firms, and then fill them
with cheap stuff they buy in juys, and
this cheap stuff is made of anything
from pumpkins to wheat straw. Any
thing that can be boiled can be used
for that sort of ketchup."
