It Is Near at Hand to Hundreds
of Plattsmouth Readers
Don't neglect an aching back. Back
ache is the kidneys' cry for help. Neg
lect hurrying to their aid means that
urinary troubles follow quickly, dire
distress, diabetes Bl ight's disease.
Mrs. B. E. Gallagher, of Wintersteen
hill, Plattsmouth, says: "Kidney trouble
was all through our family. My father
and an uncle died with Bright's disease,
so in my case there is no doubt about
kidney affection being hereditary. Ever
since I had the rheumatism thirty years
ago, in fact, all my life, I have been
subject to pain in my back and drop
sical tendencies. " On account of the
misery in my loins I have at times hard
ly been able to get up or down. I could
tell in dressing how badly my body
would be swollen and than my limbs
would be bloated and my hands pulled
up. A friend of mine gave me part of
a box of Doan's Kidney Pills. iThe
strong praise she gave for the remedy
gave me some hopes that it might do
me some good. I used it and it did
prove true to the claims made for it. Of
course, I could not expect a permanent
cure from taking half a box, but to say
that it brought me much relief from
the pain and dropsical symptoms is not ;
exaggeration by any means. I procured ;
Doan's Kidney Pills at Gering & Co. 's j
drug store."

Flight of Time Arrested.
Yesterday morning with a booming re- ',
port like the opening of the day of doom, 1
the heavy weights, which give power ,
for the propelling of the big clock at
the court house, caused the cable to
part which held them. They weigh ;
about eight hundred pounds and their i
dropping jarred the court house until it !
shook like there was an earthquake. :
The occupants of the court house were !
startled and turned pale, fearing some
catastrophy was about to happen. One ;
day last wenk Commissioner Marshall
while down here took his little boy up ,
into the tower to see the sights, and on ;
returning told the janitor that the cable
had to be repaired, he in turn reported '.
the matter to the one in charge of the '
clock, but as there had been no oppor
tunity to make the repairs, it had not j
been done. The cable which had been
in use since the installation of the clock, j
had become worn at the point where it
fastened on the drum oh which it wttS ,
wound. It hardly seems that it should ;
be the business of the one in charge of
the clock to make these repairs, and as '
the commissioners had not met since, it ;
had not had an opportunity to receive j
the attention.
Many City Schools Maintaining This
Aditiona! Department.
Normal training as a special depart
ment of high schools will be a leading
feature of the year's educational work
in Nebraska, says the Lincoln News.
The legislature having appropriated
$50,000 for this purpose, each high
school that meets the conditions out
lined in the law and imposed by State
Superintendent McBrien will receive a
bonus of $375 per year, or $750 for the
biennium. This will not be sufficient to
pay the full salary of an instructor, but
it will be a large help in that direction.
Superintendent McBrien learns that

Watches Returned Friday.
That it pays to advertise, is a fore
gone conclusion, and a fact that can
not be controverted. Henry Born who j
lost two watches about ten days since '
advertised the matter in the Journal. !
These watches were taken from his !
home during the absence of the family, j
with the intention that they should
never be returned. But when Mr. Born j
advertised the fact, challenging the j
public attention to the markings on the i
cases, which would lead to the identifi- j
cation of the stolen goods if any one ;
should try to negotiate them. The ;
thief, whoever he ' was, seeing this,
saw the only way was to return them
to the rightful owner, and thereby save j
trouble. Had Mr. Born not have had ,
the description whereby he could iden- .
tify them and have made the fact known
through the Journal the timekeepers
Would Still be' missing. It is unneces
nry to say that the stolen property
was returned when no one saw the par
ty who brought them back.
Great Introducing Grocery i
) Offer! j
A Wholesale Arrest
The couuty attorney yesterday morn
ing filed complaint against twelve per-
sons for violation of the anti-treating j
law, known as the Slocomb law, with
Judge Archer. Upon this, warrants j
have been issued and three arrests have !
been made, a portion of which were ;
given a continuance, and the others j
were bound over to appear at the dis- j
trict court, which convened yesterday. '
The other nine have not been appre- !
hended as we go to press. This was !
done under sections 31 and 32 of chapter
50 of the criminal code. This law has !
been on the books for a long time, and ;
was then known as the Slocomb law, I
and was section 1 and 2 of chapter 62. j
We had this article prepared for yester- I
day's issue but it was crowded out by j
news of more importance. Today there !
has been four more complaints sworn j
out, and the entire list now amounts to .
