The Doctor Away From Home When
People are often much dissappointed
to find that their family physician is
away from home when they most need
his services. Diseases like cramp colic
cholera morbus jepuire prompt treat
ment, and have in many cases proven
fatal before medicine could be procured
or a physician summoned. The right
way is to keep at hand a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy. No physician can pre
scribe a better medicine for these dis
eases. By having it in the house you
escape much pain and suffering and
all risk. Buy it now; it may save life.

DEATH OF HENRY
Who Suddenly Passed Away
Last Night at His Home
Uncle Henry Hollister died at an ad
vanced age at his home in Lincoln last
evening. Mr. Hollister was for a num
ber of years a resident of this city and
was the Burlington's baggage man at
this point when this was a division. He
was a very genial and kindly man, well
loved by all who knew him, and his many
friends will be grieved to learn of his
death. Mrs. Phillip Harrison of this
city is a daughter of the deceased. In
speaking of the death of Mr. Hollister,
the Lincoln Journal says: "Henry H.
Hollister died suddenly yesterday even
ing at his home, 727 North Eleventh
street. He went to an outhouse and
soon afterward he was found dead. Dr.
Stewart who had treated him said he
had been suffering for two years from
organic heart disease and he believed
death was caused by heart failure. The
body was taken to the undertaking
rooms of Castle, Roper & Mathews. He
was employed in railroad work for many
years, last as a flagman, but he had not
worked during the past year. He leaves
one daughter, Mrs. Alia Harrison of
Plattsmouth and one brother, Bradford
H. Hollister of Lincoln."
The funeral of the late Henry Hollis
ter was held from the Burlington train
No. 2, lant evening, and was conducted
by Canon Burgess of St. Luke's Epis
copal church. The weather was very
threatening when the procession started,
and as they proceeded it became worse,
and as they were conducting the ser
vices at the cemetery, about 6 o'clock,
the storm broke upon them in all its
fury. The closed cabs prevented those
attending from receiving the extreme
violence of the storm. The pall bearers
were, J. W. Johnson, C. C. Despain,
John Waterman, Frank Kauble, Walter
J. White and M. S. Briggs,
Nearly all old-fashioned cough syrups
are constipating, especially those that
contain opiates. They don't act just
right. Kennedy's Laxativs Cough syrup
contains no opiates. It drives the cold

the bowels. Contains honey and tar
and tastes nearly as good as maple
syrup. Children like it. Sold by F. G.

Woodmen Make Payment
The W. O. W. through Gus Rhode,
clerk of the local Evergreen camp, No.
70, last evening handed Mrs. Ed Grass
man a draft for $1000 as payment for
the death loss of her husband which oc
curred just five days before. This set
tlement is one of very prompt action
and speaks well for the order. This
takes away the embarassment which so
often results in a case like this, where
no ready funds are on hand for immedi
ate use. In a short time the order will
erect a monument to commemerate the
rife of one whose memory they cherish.
Summer coughs and colds yield at once
to Bee's Laxative Cough Syrup. Con

yield quickly. Sold by Gering & Co.
Eyes Troubling Again
David E. Rice, who had such a time
with his eyes about a month or so since,
and at the time when they showed signs
of marked improvement and was pleas
ed with the hope that they would when
they had became entirely well, be
free from the trouble which had afflict
ed him. But during the last few days
he has had the same trouble recur as
was the immediate cause of the opera
tion before. Mr. Rice departed for
Omaha this morning to consult the
specialist, Dr. Gifford, as to what should
be done in the case. This time he feels
as though it would not pay to wait un
til the case was an aggrivated one, but
take steps in the beginning, that suffer
ing might be avoided.

The act of March 2, 1907, appropriat
ed a sum of money for snagging pur
poses on the Missouri river, which will
keep the government snagboats in the
water for two seasons, working up and
down the river between the mouth and
Sioux City, Iowa. It will be necessary
for them to take on fuel and supplies,
such as subsistence stores, etc., at the
various towns along the river, and we
would like to have the merchants in
your town acquainted with this fact, in
order that the boats will receive the
proper recognition and can buy what
ever supplies they want in the usual
manner, payment to be made by voucher,
and so there will be no delay in taking
on stores. We wish dealers to feel
absolutely safe in dealing with the
master of U. S. snagboats; as they are
vested with full authority to purchase
whatever is needed. By direction of
Captain Edward H. Schulz, U. S. A.

Where They Take Rabbit
Scalps in the way
There are quite a number of Cass
.county people who own farms down in
Trego county, Kansas, where the wheat
crop is so immense that farmers are
paying $5.00 a day for harvest hands.
Trego county is noted also for the im
mense number of rabbits within its
boundry. And while these pests abound
in great numbers, it seems the mer
chants have hit upon the proper plan to
assist the farmers in getting rid of as
many as possible.
Wakeeney is the county seat, and the
merchants advertise to pay 5 cents each
for rabbit scalps, no matter whether the
unfortunate "bunny" is full grown or
not. W. J. Williams, who is the pro
prietor of a grocery store in Wakeeney,
bought 2,840 scalps during the months
of March, April and May this year, John
Keraus, another merchant of the same
place bought 2,760 scalps, while no mer
chant in the little town paid for less than
The farmers and ranchmen bring rab
bit scalps to the country stores along
with eggs and butter. The grocer ac
cepts and counts them with no more ado
than if they were so many eggs.
A few years ago Trego county, in the
hope of exterminating the troublesome
jack rabbit, decided to pay a bounty of
5 cents for ra'obit scalps, the money to
be paid whenever the scalps are present
ed at the county treasurer's office. Soon
after men who had never before been
seen in Wakeeney came to the court
house with big sacks of scalps. Finally
the county commissioners grew suspici
ous, and it eventually developer! that
certain residents of neighboring coun
ties were taking advantage of Trego's
bounty law and were bringing scalps
from as far as fifty miles.
To discourage this practice the county
decided to allow payment for scalps not
more often than every three months.
Three months was a long time to wait.
The hunters become impatient at the
long delay. It remained for the mer
chants to solve the difficulty. Accord
ingly it was announced through the
colurns of the weekly papern that rabbit
scalps would be taken at the gnu-cry
stores in exchange for merchandise, pro
vided the owner of the scalps would
give his word that they were taken from
rabbits killed in Trego county.
QThc plan proved a success. Instead of
the fanners making a weekly trip to
the courthouse the merchants reported
every tnree months at the eommision
ers' office and the bils were allowed.
During the months of March, April
and May the total amount of bills allow
ed by the commissioners for rabbit
scalps was $.rT,S. In other words, Trego
county killed l.i,:',C0 rabbits during the
