MRS. OERTRUDE McKlEItNAN,
216 Neosho street, Emporia, Ka.,
"I suffered very much with a sovere
cold in the head and was always com
plaining of feeling tired and drowsy.
When my mother suKgented and in
stated on my taking a few bottles of
Peruna, I did so, tU in a short time I
felt like a new person. My mother
praise It very highly and so do I."

and a permanent stay in our home." .

well. I would not be without that gieat
tonic for tun time its cost."

Grover RuffnerDraggd About
Three Hundred Feet.
Grover Ruffner was exercising Carl
Fricke's fine stepper Friday evening and
had just taken a young lady home to
South Park, and while in the act of
stepping into the buggy again the horse,
from no apparent reason, became badly
frightened and ran away. Grover had
hold of the lines, and when the horse
started he was jerked off his feet and
dragged a distance of some three hun
dred feet before the lines broke. The
horse started before the residence of
Superintendent J. W. Gamble, and ran
north to the next corner and turning
west ran down Chicago Avenue and to
town, where he was caught on Sixth
street by Willie Egenberger, and taken
to the barn. In the flight the cross piece
connecting the shafts was broken, re
leasing the single-tree which allowed
the traces to become unhooked and thus
detaching the horse from the buggy,
but overturning it and breaking it to
some extent. While being dragged
Grover had the experience of sliding
through a pool of muddy water which
materially changed the appearance of
raiment. He received a cut in his left
leg just above the knee and lost his cap
in the action. After the horse became
detached from the buggy, it lost . the
traces, and nothing of them can be
found any where. In all, it was a very
unpleasant affair, and one not to be
relished, being expensive as well as ex
citing. Take the Pottmastor's Word for It.
F. M. Hamilton, postmaster at Cher
ryvale, Ind., keeps also a stock of gen
eral merchandise and patent medicines.
He says: "Chamberlain's Colic, Chol
era and Diarrhoea Remedy is standard
here in its line. It never fails to give
satisfaction and we could hardly afford
to be without if" For sale by F. G.

Ole Roman, who has been employed
in the Burlington blacksmith shop for a
number of years, has resigned his posi
tion and is making arrangement is to de
part for Lead, South Dakota, on Monday
next, where he has accepted a position
in the blacksmith shops of the Home
stake Mining company. We understand
Mr. Roman is to receive quite a sub
stantial increase in pay over what he
has been getting here. While we dis
like to lose Mr. Roman as a neighbor
and citizen, we rejoice in the fact that
he has been tendered and has accepted
a better paying position than the one
held here. What we lose in a good cit
izen will be the gain of the place where
he shall make his future home.

Fuueral of Chas. Kerr
At the Methodist church Saturday af
ternoon at 4 o'clock, the funeral of the
late Chas. Kerr was held. Many of his
old friends were present to show honor
to him in-the last sad rites they could
administer. Those who came were glad
to be counted among those who had
known and loved Charlie for his many
virtues and the kindly acts which he had
done while with us.
The choir, consisting of R. B. Wind
ham, Don York, Mrs. C. S. Johnson and
Miss Ktha Crabill, sang very sweetly
"Jesus Lover of My Soul," after which
Dr. J. T. Baird read the Shepherd's
Psalm, the 23d, which seems the most
beautiful in the Old Testament, and the
choir sang "Rock of Ages." Dr. Baird
offered prayer and the beautiful song
"Abide With Me" was sang by the
choir, after which the address was given
by Rev. T. J. Mayor of the Central
avenue Methodist church of Kansas
City, pastoi of the church of which
Charlie was a member for several years
and a great friend of his during his life.
The pastor spoke of . the young life
withiits promise r and , what it held for
the young men of which Charlie Kerr
was one, and in closing pronounced his
life a benediction to all who had known
him. The remains were interred at Oak
Hill cemetery by the side of his father,
B. C. Kerr, who preceeded his son some

The Charming Woman
Is not necessarily one of perfect form
and features. Many a plain woman
could never serve as an artists model,
possesses those rare qualities that all
the world admirss; neatness, clear eyes,
clean smooth skin, and that sprightli
ness of step and action that accompany
good health. A physically weak woman
is never attractive, not even to herself.
Electric Bitters restore weak women,
give stroug nerves, bright eyes, smooth,
velvety skin, beautiful complexion.

Why Certain Men Marry?
The editor of the Journal sent out
a circular letter some time since to a
number of married men of Plattsmouth,
asking them why they married? Here
are a few of the answers, all accompan
ied with the request that we do not
print their names:
Because I did not have the experience
1 have now.
That's what I have been trying for 11
year to find out.
I married to get even with her moth
er, but never have.
I yearned for company. Now we have
it all the time.
I thought it would be cheaper than a
breach of promise suit.
Because Sarah told me -that. five v oth
er men had proposed to her.
That's the same fool question my
friends asked me.
I wanted a companion of the opposite
sex. She is still opposite.
The old man was going to give me
his foot, so I took his daughter's hand.
Because I asked her to have me and
she said she would I think she got me.
Because I thought she a3 one among
a thousand now I think she is a thous
I was lonely and melancholy and
wanted someone to make me lively.
She makes me lively.

CASTOR I A
For Infants and Children.
The Kind You Have Always Bought
Under the Juvenile act 190", a war
rant was issued today for the arrest of
a parent who Has been sending his little
girl to a saloon for beer, and the dates
on which they have evidence of the vio
lation of the law are from the 17th to
the 23rd of the present month inclusive.
In conversation with the county attor
ney, he expressed himself to the effect
that the law in this direction had to be
obeyed. To those who do not know and
think they have the right of sending
their children for something to drink or
for any other purpose, we cite a
synopsis of the juvenile law enacted in
1905, under which this action was brought.
The law defines what is meant by a
"Delinquent Child" as being a child un
der 16 years of age, who visits a saloon
or dram shop and makes it a penalty
for a parent or guardian or anyone hav
ing custody and control of a minor child,
to contribute to its "delinquency," as
defined in the statutes. The penalty is
a fine of not to exceed $500.00, or six
months in the county jail , or both fine
and imprisonment, as the court may
This makes the punishment very
severe and no one can hardly afford to
brook the law in view of the determined
stand which is making for its enforce
ment. It will be well for those who
have been in the practice of sending
minor children to the saloon to fully
acquaint themselves with the law, and
There were more arrests made under
the juveils act, for the sending and com
pelling those who are under sixteen
years to go to saloons for the purpose
of procuring beer. Those arrested to
day were George Grebe for sending
Connie Grebe, his son, after beer, and
Louis Kissling for sending his daughter,
Carrie, and Frank Johnson for sending
Josie Lahoda, a step-daughter after
Those, with the case of yesterday,
making four in all will be emphasized by
more as they occur, and the sooner
those who have been in the habit of the
practice stop the same, the better for

At f he Home of Thomas Will
on Last Saturday
The home of Thomas Will was a scene
of much merriment Saturday evening,
July 20, when his sister. Miss Fanny e,
invited a number of friends in to sur
prise her friend. Miss Eleanor Todd of
Plattsmouth, who was spending a few
days with her. The evening was spent
in playing various games on the lawn,
and music furnished by Vesta Eaton,
Manota Perry and Florence Vallery
which was enjoyed by all. At the usu
al hour refreshments were served, and
at a late hour the guests departed, re
gretting only that the time had come
all too soon for their departure.
Those who were present to enjoy a
good time were: Minnie Stohlman, El

Frank Raker, carrier on R. F. D., No.

day. He was just in the act of putting
mail into Will Rosenow's mail box when
the horse he was driving caught its hind
foot in a broken telephone wire lying in
the grass causing it to become frighten
ed and run away. Frank was thrown
out between the front wheel and shaves
and dragged for some distance, render
ing him unconscious. He was taken in
to Mr. Rosenow's house, where he soon
recovered consciousness and was able
to resume his trip. Fortunately he was
not injured beyond a few bruises. The
horse ran to Will Cook's place, where
it turned in and was caught. No dam
age was done to the buggy or harness,
but the horse received quite a cut across
the breast from barb wire. Elmwood
The Tobacco Law.
One of our officials, who says he does
not desire to put anyone to any trouble,
requests the Journal to publish the fol
lowing section of the law pertaining to
the sale of tobacco. It would be well
for some of our tobacco dealers to read
the following and govern themselves
"Sec. 2449. Sale prohibited. That
hereafter no person, firm, association
or corporation in this state shall sell,
give, or furnish in any way, tobacco in
any form whatsoever, or any cigarette
papers to any minor under 18 years of
Penalty. That any person, firm, as
sociation or corporation violating the
provisions of thi3 section, shall, upon
conviction thereof, for each and every
offence . be. fined in the sum of not less
than $20 and not more than $50' and cost
of suit, or be imprisoned for not less
than ten or more than thirty days in the
descretion of the court,"

may wish touching on the grain or stock

A force of men were here today taking
down the Postal telegraph wires which
were strung on top of the poles of the
Independent telephone company and
which was ordered down some time
since. It is thought the company will
lease two wires from the ' Bell tele
phone company and reopen their offices
at this place and Plattsmouth. They
have until the 10th of next month to
make up their minds in reference to the
matter. Nebraska City News.

Sends His Thanks
M. M. Beal received a letter from F.
A. Murphy yesterday, in which he
thanked Mr. Beal for the assistance
which he rendered Mrs. Murphy at the
time when the cloudburst came and the
floods followed, filling the basement of
the Murphy home. It was in the night,
and Mr. Beal and son Clarence hastened
down and helped get things out to keep
them from floating away. Mr. Murphy,
in a spirit of thank fullness for the
favor shown, hastens to express him
self for the kindness rendered to his
In refering to the apt manner in
which Lincoln suckers bite at all sorts
of bait thrown at them by outside pro
moters, the Star says:
"Let the stranger come here and hold
up abigchnnkof stuff which he declares
is practically pure silver or gold. That
man can sell stock in his mind until our
people have got right down to the over
draft stage. But let a man try to dis
pose of stock in a concern that is to sell
Lincoln-made goods, the product of
home capital and home labor, and he
will have a hard time getting a dollar. "
Lincoln has no monopoly upon that
sort of a spirit. It is manifest in many
other towns, and is not absent in Platts
mouth. We have many enterprises that might
have developed, and some of them have
actually suffered not only from the with
holding of funds but by adverse critcism
that has kept those from investing who
might have been induced to help them
along. If all the money that has been
taken from this town and lost in a wild
cat mining speculations had been used
here at home to develop some legitimate
manufacturing enterprise, it would have
secured a return to the investor, and
have contributed very materially to the
upbuilding of the town.
The Title in the Postoffice Site Ap
proved at Washington.
The press dispatches tell of the re
ception of the abstract of title and the
deeds conveying the title of the site se
lected for the postoffice at this place,
and also that the papers have been ap
proved by the proper department. This
is another step in the direction of the
government building which is to grace
the coming Plattsmouth, which is being
ushered in, and which is the making of
the best town in the west.
L. B. Wickersham said we could make
Plattsmouth a household word in every
city and hamlet of the state if we would
and we are surely on the highway for
that at the present time. That Platts
mouth shall improve is the decree of
the thousands of her enterprising peo
ple. This was evidenced when they got
a hump on themselves and got things
going again in so short a time after the
destructive high waters.
There is more for Plattsmouth than
a postoffice building or railroad shops,
or any other single enterprise, if we
will only get a hustle on ourselves and
go after what we want. The making
of a rustling town is a matter not so
difficult to accomplish if we only work
together. Now why not do it?

The Farmer Who Is a Profes
Most every town ban some real hard
knockers, but occasionally an expert at
the knocking business comes from the
farm. A few days ago a well known
knocker came in and opened the cam

his proclivities for this business, ap-'
pointed themselves an examinitig com
mittee, to follow him around one at n
time and note his days work.
In changing his headquarters several
times, or whenever he could secure an
audience, the report of the committee
showed that the visitor was proficient
in his chosen avocation, and spared no
one. The officials of the state were put
on the rack. The oflicials of the county
in which he had chosen to make his
home, with one or two exceptions,
were declared unworthy of the positions
they hold. The city ollicials were most
briefly denied even a fair trial. The
churches and ministers were toasted to
a brown. The local merchants were
declared the slowest and most unworthy
of any town he knew of. As his mind
began to dwell on home, he scorched the
road overseer, not forgetting several of
his neighbors who had failed to do their
duty as citizens.
After he had exploded to his heart's
content, he drew a long breath and made
a break for his team, which he found
standing in the sun, without water or
feed during the entire day, got in his
buggy, put whip to the horses and
drove down to the Burlington depot, and
loaded in a churn that he had ordered
from Sears & Roebuck by expess. The

"Greet Ye One Another With
A Holy Kiss."
Down at Cario, Illinois, is a minister
by the name of Bass. In a recent ser
mon he declared against kissing, not
because of microbes, germs, baccilli, or
slobber, but on moral grounds. He de
clares that "the kiss is the devil's most
cherished and fruitful instrument for
bringing in his harvest and it does more
to fill hell than whiskey, drugs and all
evils ever invented and rolled together. "
