In such a household Peruna becomes a real blessing. It promptly meets

serious and extended illness many a time.

The More You Find Out About
It the More Absured
In consequence of the sublime block
headedness of the late legislature in
drafting the primary law the organiza
tions of political parties in Nebraska
will pass under the control and into the
keeping of a handful of men next year,
truthfully remarks the World Herald.
The law provides that the nominees
for county offices of the various politi
cal parties shall select the county com
mittee. The county committee, in turn,
shall select one delegate to the state
convention that is to meet to frame a
platform. And that state convention
shall name a state committee, consist
ing, as now, of one member for each
state senator. This process is to be re
peated each year.
Next year we elect presidential elect
ors, congressmen and a state ticket.
Yet the only county officers to be elec
ted are county attorney and commissioner
er or supervisor. The party nominees for
these two offices, then, will name the
county committee, and, though the
county committee, the state committee
and the convention that drafts the plat
form! The theory of the primary is to pro
mote popular government, to place the
power in the hands of the people. Yet
this law, as stupidly drafted, defeats
its own ostensible purpose by making.in
a presidential year, two men in one or
two counties three men absolute direc
tors of the party organization and plat
form! This is but one of the many palpable
absurdities in the new primary law.
And the weakness of the primary law is
on a par with the ineffectiveness of the
anti-pass law. As to these two highly
important measures the state's great
est need, at this time, is a new legisla
ture that will enact intelligently what
the last legislature enacted bungingly;
in other words, that will do last legisla
ture's work over again.
Goes to Hospital
Mrs. Robert Richter. who has been
roubled with appendicitis for some
time, has been hoping that she would
receive relief without having to submit
to an operation, but as time has gone
on, she has become worse, so she has
concluded that in order to secure the
health that is so desired, she will have
to go to St. Joseph's hospital, where
she will be operated upon for relief from
her troubles. Accompanied by Mr.
Richter, her sister and Dr. Cummins
she went to Omaha this morning, and
will enter the hospital today.

Of the Number
The following special from Elmwood
will no doubt be read with considerable
interest by the many young friends of
Miss Bessie Tyson, who was considered
one of popular and handsome young
ladies of Plattsmouth during her resi
dence here. Perhaps, somewhat in ad
vance, the Journal extends congratula
tions to Miss Bessie, anyway: "A very
pleasant evening was spent at the beau
tiful home of "Grandma" Hollenbeck
last evening when the Misses Bessie
Tyson and Nora Neihart entertained a
few of their friends. After an evening
spent in games and music the guests
were ushered into the dining room,
where a three course luncheon was serv

served a telegram was brought to Miss
Virginia Harsberger, which read: 'To

To Avoid Typhoid Fever
Physicians say from now until Sep
tember 1st, is the worst time of the year
for typhoid fever. Hot weather they
say, is conducive to typhoid and kindred
fevers and the greatest care should be
taken in eating and drinking to select
good food and pure water. It will be a
wise move on the part of our citizens to
give their premises a thorough renovat
ing and remove all the old garbage and
refuse matter. Weeds should be kept
down, and chances for infection diseases
reduced to a minimum.

THE NEXT STEP
FOR THE YOUTH
Industrial Education, the Sub
ject of Much Discussion
Send the whole boy to school. Have
you ever considered that free high
schools and endowed colleges give the
American boy a splendid opportunity to
become a lawyer, a teacher, a doctor, a
chemist, an architect, a minister or an
engineer, but the places of the highly
paid mechanics are largely filled with
foreigners, while the American boy who
wishes to learn the trade has not an ade
quate opportunity to do so?
The address recently delivered at In
dianapolis by Mr. J. W. Van Cleave, of
St. Louis, president of the National As
socian of Manufacturers, on the subject
of "Industrial Education The Next
Step," deserves a wide attention for its
illumination of the state of fact refered
to above, and because of its argument
1 for the introduction of manual training
in the public schools. At the outset
here is a compelling thought: "By in
terspersing his ordinary studies with
daily intermissions or vacations at the
lathe, with a saw, the chisel or the plane
or with some other form of work, we
will make school so interesting for the
boy that he will be anxious to remain in
By the early use of tools a boy rap
idly learns his own inclination and apti
tude, and is able to make an intelligent
selection of the kind of mechanical work
for which he is best fitted. Thus he
would be saved from many of the errors
inevitable under the present condition,
when, at a later age, necessity compels
him to make a choice of trade without
any preliminary reconnoissance of the
ground such as the primary school work
in the elements of mechanics would give
Says Mr. Van Cleave: "The virtual
abolition of the apprentice system in this
country in recent times has closed the
door of opportunity to hundreds of
thousands of intelligent, ambitious
American boys every' year who arrive at
the trade-learning age. This bar has
forced most of them to enter the ranks
of the day laborers. It has made some
of the others cheap and crude competi
tors of the skilled workers. It hascon-
demend others toJidleness,and to the fol
lies and the crimes which idleness often
Certainly it goes without saying that
a broad system of industrial training is
essential in a country primarily and fund
amentally industrial. The plea that
manual training should be generally in
corporated into the public school system
is good logic and common sense. Already
to some extent, manual training has
made its way into our schools, and its
value has been amply demonstrated and
promptly recognized wherever it ob
tains. LAW RESPECTS
And Money Should Not be a
Usurper of Law
It is a trite saying that death is no
respector of persons. That same saying
is true of the written law. And yet we
often see a distinction between persons
charged with the same crime. But that
is not the fault of the law. The fault
lies in the application of the law. Men
who commit offences against the law
do not always stand equally before the
people in a social way. One man com
mits a crime who has few influential
friends. The community demands his
punishment and the officials promptly
prosecute him and send him to the pen
itentiary. Another man commits pract
ically the same crime, but he has influ
ential friends who flock to his support
and do all that lies in their power to
save him from the penitentiary. The
same law that sent the first man to the
penitentiary designs that the second
man should also go there. But the of
ficials are not so entergetic as they
were in the first instance and public sen
timent has become blunted to the point
that were the excuses offered in the
first case were pronounced subterfuges !
they become arguments fit to be accept
ed in the second case. The result is
that the second man escapes punish
ment for precisely the same crime that
sent the first man to the penitentiary.
This is not the fault of the law, but is
the fault of those who apply it. How
long can a community maintain its moral
standing under such conditions? Who
is the law-abiding citizen that desires
the encouragement of such conditions?
To advocate the conviction of one man
and the acquittal of another for the same
crime is incipient anarchy.
Suit Against the M. P.
The case of Mrs. Anderson vs. The
Missouri Pacific railroad is being tried
in Omaha today. It will be remember
ed that Mrs. Anderson fell from a train
at the depot in this city a few weeks
ago while attempting to alight from a
passenger train while the same was in
motion, and through the carelessness of
the conductor, who failed to give her
time to get off. A number jof witneses
went up from here.

as to that matter, for they throw brick
i bats and such things. On complaint of
one Mrs. Maggie Markley, two boys,
Albert and Gus Cunning, were arraign
ed in the police court for disturbing the
peace. When their trial came on, itde
veloped that the boys on either side of
the road did not get along very well,
and that the parents were in a way tak
ing the part of their own children, and
they, knowing the feeling of the par
ents, felt rather disposed to keep up
hostilities, when otherwise they probab
ly would have died a natural death.

Attempted Hold Up.
Last evening about 9:30 while one of
our poung men (who has asked that his
name be withheld as he does not like
to be jollied, on account of the part he
was compelled to take in the matter.)
was returning from a call upon a young
f riend, and .was t passing ,. along . Wash
ington avenue, near where Andrew
Kroehler lives, was approached and
stopped and asked for his money. At
first he thought it some of his fellows
and that they were playing a joke on
him. But he was soon assured of the
earnestness of the person who claimed
to be hungry, and said he wanted to
get somethiug to eat. The young man
told the hold up that he was sorry' for
him but that he did not have any money.
Then tobacco was asked for but as he
did not carry that he had to go without
The man who had evidently gotten off
of a south bound Missouri Pacific train,
was short of stature and was very poor
ly dressed, having the appearance of an
ordinary bum. He asked if he thought
the "kid" who had ran away just before
had any money, but our young man could
not give the desired information, so the
bum departed. The young man imme
diately tried to call the police station
but at that time no one responded, as
in all probability the council chamber
where he 'phoned to was closed.
Be a Booster.
A Texas newspaper says that there is
no end of fun in minding your own busi
ness, and it makes people like you bet
ter. It is better to have others stuck
on you than to be stuck on yourself.
Don't knock; don't get stubborn; don't
roast just jolly. Everj'body likes to
be jollied. Be a good fellow it's dead
easy. Help yourself along: push your
friends with you. No man ever helped
himself by knocking other people. You
can't climb the ladder to fame by step
ping on people's corns and they are
tender. Help everybody; get hold with
both hands while there is a chance to
help your town. Bury your hatchet;
drop your tomahawk; hide your little
hammer. Be a booster.
Frank E. Schlater
The above gentleman is now a full-
fledged candidate for the democratic
nomination for treasurer of Cass coun
ty. Frank E. Schlater is one of the
most efficient men for the position that
can possibly be found in. the county.
His qualities have been full demonstrat
ed during his deputyship under "Billy'"
Wheeler where he has fully displayed
his ability as an accountant. There are
none better in Cass county and this fact,
together with that, that he possesses all
the qualities as a first-class gentleman.
He is pretty well known to nearly all
the business men in the towns and near
ly every farmer who has taxes to pay.
He is just the man to conduct the af
fairs of this very important and respon
sible office and everybody knows it. He
will be nominated by the democrats and
should be elected.

J. D. Graves in Town

in on the fast mail and immediately de
parted via of a team for Hock Bluffs,
where he will visit his mother, Mrs. M.
P. Graves,' over night, and return in
the morning in time to make the train.
The trip which he is making is a busy
one. He has a farm over near Hills
dale, Iowa, and during the storm of a
few weeks since, he sustained some dam
age from the high winds, and in going

A Very "Thin" Game
It is a well known fact that there are
two or three Burlington officials with
headquarters at Lincoln, who, no doubt,
would like to see the Plattsmouth shops
removed to that city, and would gladly
use their influence to this end, if they
could have an opportunity to purchase
one hundred acres of land pretty cheap,
and lay the same out in town lots and
sell it out at a big price per lot. The
directors and head officials at Chicago
should have an eye to the movements
of these selfish officials of the Burling
ton on this division.
