One Who Was There.
Change is to Take Effect the First of
We are reliably informed that Earl C.
Wescott has obtained the controlling
interest in the Nebraska Lighting Com
pany, and that he has been chosen as
the manager for the concern, his term
of office to begin on the first of the next
month. In conversation with Mr. Wes
cott this morning, he said that work on
the extension of the line from Omaha
was being pushed as rapidly as possible,
and that he was as anxious to get the
line here and the service going as any
in the city. He says that just as soon
as it is possible to get the light installed
and going the better it will suit him.
It is a business pro;osition with him
and he will not be doing any business
which will be remunerative until he
shall have gotten the system working.
Kot Laying Off Men.
The Lincoln Journal in referring to
the laying otT of several thousand men
by the Union Pacific railroad, has the
following to say regarding the Burling
ton: "The Hurlington has not begun to
lay off men because of the financial
stringency, so far as the reports from
local headquarters show. Such an or
der may fe received, bringing with it
sweeping reductions, but it is not looked
for. For several weeks the company
has been reducing forces in its construc
tion department, but that is the usual
course at this time of the year. The
company has been closing up work
under way as rapidly as possible, and
where work is closed and gotten out of
the way the men employed on that
work are either moved to some other
job where it is necessary to increase
the force t secure completion before
winter time, or they are laid off. A
number of ganc ":ed in construction
were laid cfT beferc the financial flurry
came upon the west, and it is probable
that during the weeks to come other
gangs will be 'aid off as rapidly as work
In other departments a force equal
to handling the business offered is
maintained, and should business drop
off decidedly it would make less work
for trainmen and men in other depart
ments. In this way the force may be
reduced eventually, but no such sweep
ing order for reductions as it is reported
the Union Pacific has made is anticipated."

The Omaha Mayor Orders All
Saloon Scraens Removed
I In conforance tfi the demands served
on Mayor Dahlman, by Elmer E. Thom
as, the saloons have been ordered to
remove all sheens in front of their
doors. In so ordering, Mayor Dahlman
takes the same view that the Journal
did when the same thing occured here
several months ago. The Mayor says:
"I cannot see what good this law can
possibly subserve. Therefore I think
the law is vicious. The government of
this state and nation has legalized the
the saloon business, placing it upon the
same basis commercially and legally as
the grocery store or a dry goods store.
It has imposed upon the men engaged
in the liquor busines heavy expense in
the form of licenses, taxes and other
exactions. Now, then, we come along and
propose by this and other di vices to take
away from these men every opportunity
of making a fair return on their money.
If we want to out-law this business we
should do so rather than legalize it and
surround the men engaged in it by re
strictions calculated to destroy their
profits. But even if this law had a good
moral effect, we might stand for its
seeming injustice, but it has not. Broad
minded men have always taken the view
that I have expressed, that it is bad to
expose to the view of children the sight
of men drinking at the bar."
Irregularity is bad In every department of life, in meals, in sleeping hours,
but especially when it is a question of womanly habit. Not only is it a sign of
female disease, but, unless cured, it will cause dangerous troubles, because of
the poisons thus allowed to remain in the system.
If you suffer in this way, get a bottle of
Mrs. Lucinda Johnson, of Fish Creek. Wis., vrites: "I suffered for fourteen (14) years with irregu
larity, causing great pain. At last 1 tried Cardul. end nov 1 am cured." At all druggists, in $1 bottles.

THE LABOR PROB
DEATH OF MRS. OS
BORN AT LINCOLN
A Sister of Mrs. C. H. Parmele and a
Pioneer of Cass County.
The following account of the death of
Mrs. Osborn, who passed away in Lin
coln on Saturday last, is taken from the
Sunday's issue of the Lincoln Journal:
"Mrs. Elizabeth Jane Osborn, one of
the pioneers of eastern Nebraska, passed
away at 11 o'clock yesterday 'morning
at the home of her daughter, Mrs. S. 0.
Salsbury, 1919 G. street. She had been
ill for about two months. Feeling that
the end was approaching, she asked
that her five sons be summoned. This
was done, and all of the live came as
speedily as possible, two from South
Dakota and three from California. The
last of the five arrived from Sacramento
in time to see his mother alive for only
about an hour. ' She had remained alive
almost by the strength of her will in or
der to see her sons together again, and
after this was accomplished passed i
quietly to rest. Her two sisters, Miss
Sarah Baker and Mrs. C. H. Parmele,
of Plattsmouth, were present, and also
her brother, D. D. Baker, of Ottumwa,
la., in spite of his eighty years. The
funeral will be held at Ashland on Mon
day. Short services will be held at the
home here at noon. Those who wish to
take a last look at their friend may do
between 2 and 4 o'clock this afternoon
at 1619 G. street.
"Mrs. Osborn was 77 years of age.
She came to Cass county, Nebraska,
thirty-nine years ago. In 1879 her hus
band died at Ashland. She was a mem
ber of the Methodist church and of Gen
eral Custer circle Ladies of the G. A.
As will be seen from the foregoing,
the deceased was one of the pioneer citi
zens of Cass county, and a sister of
Mrs. C. H. Parmele, and an aunt of C.
C. and T. E. Parmele of this city. The
funeral proper will occur at Ashland at
4 o'clock this (Monday) afternoon, and
which was attended by all the Platts
mouth relatives. The services were
conducted by Rev. J. II. Salsbury, pas
tor of the Presbyterian church of this
city, where interment was made. A
large number of relatives attending the
last sad rites, as well did the old resi
dents near Ashland, who -knew the de
ceased in early days of Cass county.
Hard Times in Kansas
The old days of grasshoppers and
drouth are almost forgotten in the pros
perous Kansas of today; although a cit
izen of Codell, Earl Shamburg, has not
yet forgotten a hard time he encounter

discouraged by caughing night and day
and could find no relief till I tried Dr.
King's New Discovery. It took less
than one bottle to completly cure me."

The question of maintaining sufficient
and reliable help, to properly care for
one's business and to provide for the in
creasing demands of a business which
is prospering and growing with the in
creasing aemanas oi tne times, is a
question which is concerning the minds
of all the great business firms of our
country. Not alone does the great cor
porations have to deal with the labor
questions, but individuals as well, es
pecially when they have a number of
One of the men which has been in the
employ of the Bauer Hardware Co., has
seen fit to prefer to shuck corn to the
staying in the store, and thinks serious
ly of farming the coming season, as his
father, Mr. Herman Bester, has a good
farm. And with the probable loss of
Frank Bester as one of his force of
help at the store, the question of sup
plying his place is one which has con
cerned John Bauer, jr. A good deal of
time has been consumed in looking
around for a suitable man for the place
and he has not been able to supply it as
he would desire.
These concerns with the other wor
ries of business in detail keeps one
thinking, and add a little to the weight
of care and make life not all gaiety, but
even with the multitude of cares which
surrounds one, there occasionally comes
a rift in the surroundings, which makes
one smile and that, too, a smile that
"will not wear off." One of these oc
casions came only last evening, when
at the pleasant home of our friend,
John Bauer, jr., came a long legged
bird, with a not unpleasant voice, and
rapped at their door, asking for Mr.
and Mrs. Bauer, and presenting them
with a nice little package, containing
the sweetest little present, which on
investigation, proved to be a little boy
who evinced a desire to make his home
with them and to learn the hardware
business, and being willing to begin at
the beginning, and master it in all its
details. Well, now you would have
shouted if you had seen the smile which
broke out over the faces of those happy
parents; why, it was wonderful, and
John is still wearing that same smile
yet. This morning the cigars were
plentiful, as he wanted his friends to
rejoice with him. Now the labor
problem is solved.

I have been afflicted with sore eyes
for thirty-three years. Thirteen years

blind for six years. My eyes were
badly inflamed. One of my neighbors
insisted upon my trying Chamberlain's

Tragic Death of Child.
Amel, the little son of Walter A.
Johnson and wife, who reside three
miles southwest of town died at 1:30
Wednesday afternoon from being kicked
by a horse Tuesday evening. Mr. John
son had driven in from the field about
5 o'clock in the evening, and little Amel,
less than three years of age, came out
to meet him. The child playfully ran
near a horse that had always been
known to be gentle, and before the
father could come to the rescue the
animal kicked and struck the child on
the abdomen. The child was immedi
ately carried into the house, and at that
time there was no indication of any
serious injury, but Wednesday morning
a physician was called and found the
i.ijuries much worse than they had ap-
peared to be. The child suffered intense
pain the last few hours until death came
to his relief at 1:30 Wednesday after
noon. Union Ledger.
The Kansas City Star says that the
up-river towns are talking boat line
now and St. Joseph may have a line of
its own in operation next year. Omaha
is talking it, too, and the Commercial
! Club of that city has invited Lawrence
j M. Jones to come there next month and
j tell them how to do it. Sioux City also
; desires to get into the business, and a
j big meeting is being planned to stir up
j enthusiasm for the improvement of the
river. Mr. Jones has been invited to
make an address there. All the con
gressmen whose districts are along the
upper river also have been invited to
The success of the Kansas City line
has stirred up the St. Joseph business
men and a committee is coming to Kan
sas City Tuesday to investigate the
workings of the Kansas City line, and
L. M. Jones has been invited to speak
at the meeting when the committee re
ports. The committee is headed by
H. L. George and F.W. Maxwell, presi
dent and secretary of the Commercial
Club of St. Joseph, both of whom were
delegates to the Memphis convention.
The other members of the convention
are John D. Richardson, Harry M. Hund
ley, Louis Motter, John C. Letts, Hus
ton Wyeth, Louis M. Smith, M. S. Davis,
Minetry Jones, all wealthy business
It is probable that the line will be
organized by the wholesale dealers as a
co-operative company. It was pointed
out at the meeting at which the com
mittee was appointed that if St. Joseph
desires to have the river improved as
far up as that city it is expedient to
have a boat line in operation. It is be
lieved also that a St. Joseph line would
pick up a good local business between
Kansas City, Leavenworth, Atchinson
and St. Joseph.
The directors of the Kansas City
Transportation and Steamship Company
are to meet next week to consider the
plans for the new boats. Changes or
dered in" the first designs have caused a
further delay in completing the plans
and Jerome Twichell, chairman of the
committee, may not be able to exhibit
the final plans and estimates.

None Looks So Good as Nebraska.
Our old friend, Herman Dreeson, drop
ped in on us last Saturday evening aiid
visited over Sunday, and now is husk
ing corn for the thrifty farmers west
of the city. While away Herman has
not been around the world, but over a
good deal of it. Starting from Lincoln
on the 6th of August, he went to South
Dakota and worked in the " harvest
fields for two weeks, from thence he
traversed to Minneapolis and after a
short time departed for the Pacific coast
stopping on the way at North Yakima
and visiting for a day or so. While on
the coast he visited at . Tacoma, Port
land and San Francisco, returning via
Denver, and getting in here Saturday.
Herman says that while he has seen a
good deal of country, none looks quite
as good as Nebraska.
