The Heating of Houses.
The central heating of houses is com
ing in greater favor every year, the
heat being more uniformly distributed
through all apartments. It can be com
pared with the action of the heart in
the human body. This also is the cen
tral organ of distributing blood through
out the system, thus keeping it warm
and comfortable. If the circulation of
blood is interfered with in a part of the
body, this part becomes cold and finally
dies. Blood is the fuel of the system
and food is the fuel of the blood. This
shows why it is so important to take in
plenty of nutritious food. If for some
reason the system refuses to accept or
cannot thoroughly digest the food it be
comes necessary to use Triner's Ameri
can Elixir of Bitter Wine. This reme
dy will make the blood to circulate more
speedily, will make the body warm and
comfortable and will make the digestive
system to accept the and assimilate any
food. Triner's American Elixir of Bit
ter Wine will purify the blood, strength
en the muscles and the nerves, preserve
health and fortify the body against at
tacks of infectious diseases. At drug
stores. Joseph Triner's, 616-622 South

Mrs. Copeland Stricken.
Mrs. Jessie Copeland, mother of Geo.
S. Copeland, making her home with her
daughter, Mrs. Chas. Purdy, at Alliance,
was stricken with paralysis on the 24th
of January, and is in a very serious
condition requiring constant care. It
will be remembered that Mrs. Cope
land, with her son, Geo. S. Copeland
and her daughter, Mrs. Chas. Purdy,
lived in this city a number of years
since, and was known by many of our
Neglected Cold Threaten Life.
"Don't trifle with a cold,' is good ad
vice for prudent men and women. It may
be vital in the of a child. Proper food,
good ventilation, and dry warm clothing
are the safe guards against colds. If they
are maintained through the changeable
weather of autumn, winter and sring,
the chances of a surprise from ordinary
colds will be slight. But the ordinary
light cold will become severe if neglected,
and a well established ripe cold is to the
germs of diphtheria what honey is to a
bee. The greatest menace to a child
life at this season of the year is the neg
lected cold. " Whether it is a child or
adult, the colds light or severe, the very
best treatment that can be adopted is to
give Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It
is safe and sure. The popularity and
immense sale of this preparation has
been attained by its remarkable cures
of this ailment. A cold never results
in pneumonia when it is given. For

The Weather Not Such as to Encourage Large
Attendance, Although a number of Town
People Were Present
At the Farmers' institute yesterday
and last evening very interesting meet
ings were had and the speakers were
such as to give confidence that they
were thoroughly able to discuss the
subjects assigned to them. At the
morning session yesterday while only
sparcely attended, Mr. S. R. McKelvie
spoke on pork production in a way
which was convincing, and those who
heard him could not but be benefitted
by what he had to say, if they ever in
tend to raise hogs. The man who thinks
farming is guess work is the man who
has failed to make the success which
his neighbors have achieved, and then
attribute their own non-success to bad
In the afternoon Prof. F. W. Card, a
farmer of Sylvania, Pennsylvania,
spoke on "Factors of Soil Fertility"
Prof. Card is a graduate of the Ne
braska State university and well knows
the soils of this state having lived here
many a year. Sfnce his graduation he
has been farming near the city of Syl
vania, where he had charge of one of
the farms which has been used for over
one hundred years, but which is kept up
to its maximum production by the
The peculiar experiences which has
been the lot of Prof. Card has well
fitted him to speak on the subject
assigned him for the afternoon session.
He showed what was necessary for the
production of all kinds of crops, and it
is to be deplored that there were not
more people to hear him. Following
him came Mr. McKelvie, who is editor
of the Nebraska Farmer and eminently
well qualified to speak on the subject,
Many Friends Give Her a ftHscellancous
Shower and Enjoy Pleasant Evening
flt Home of V. D. Smith
Mrs. W. D. Smith and Mrs. M. A.
Dickson entertained a merry crowd of
young ladies at a miscellanous shower
Tuesday evening, in honor of Miss
Jessie Duffey. The home of Mrs.
Smith was beautifully decorated in red
and white, red wedding bells were sus
pended from the chandeliers, and red
and white ribbons were hung from the
center to each corner, making a very
beautiful effect. In the parlor were
little burnt wood hearts having cupids
and date of the shower on each, they
were tied with red baby ribbon and
hung from corner to corner, these were
distributed among the guests at the
parting hour as a hand made remem
brance from Mrs. Smith. The dining
room tables were prettly decorated with
ferns, and at a late hour, an elaborate
two-course luncheon was served to the
guests by Mrs. W. D. Smith, Mrs. F.
E. Hawkenberry and Mrs. M. A. Dick
son. The first course consisting of
sandwiches, potatoe salad on lettuce,
pickles and coffee, passed off very quiet
ly, but the second course contained a
pleasant surprise for all. Fruit salad
was served with red and white calces
cut in hearts, but the white pieces con
tained a ring and a button among them.
Much laughter was produced when Miss
Freda Herold got the ring, signifying
that she would be the next bride in the
crowd. Miss Edna Peterson got the

which he handled in a clear and lucid
manner. "Care of Pure Bred Stock"
was his theme and what he naid in this
respect could as well be applied to all
kinds of stock, for it is useless to try
to raise stock unless the proper care be
taken of them, much less to invest
money in fancy priced stock and then
expect them to make their own living
and one for you besides with no show
at all. Those who listened to these
addresses were well repaid for their
time and whatever trouble it was for
them to be in attendance. The even
ing sessions were, on account of the
weather, very slimly attended, while the
same sterling merit was displayed by
the speakers as during the afternoon.
Mr. McKelvie spoke on "Nebraska
Farming," while Prof. Card gave an
address on "Opportunities for Young
Men and Women in Agriculture." Those
who were present listened with more
than usual interest to the discourses,
but it seems very discouraging to the
state officials who have gone to the
trouble to send out these speakers for
the especial purpose of interesting and
instructing the farmers, that they
should fail to come because the weather
was a little adverse.
Well did Solomon of old speak truly
when he said, "He that watcheth the
clouds shall not sow and he that obaerv
eth the winds shall not reap." Mr.
McKelvie and Prof. Card departed for
Union this morning where they will
speak at an institute at that place, and
will go to from there to Auburn.
In speaking of the work Prof. Card
said that he had been in the state for
the past two weeks at different places,
and would spend two weeks more here.
button which meant that she was des
tined to be the old maid in the crowd.
The evening was pleasantly spent in
games and music, the guests were re
quested to draw what they imagined
would be the future home of the bride-to-be.
After serious consideration, the
judges decided to award the first prize,
a beautiful chocolate pot, to Mis3 Freda
Herold, and the bobby prize, a colored
doll, to Miss Sally Brady. Before the
guests departed, many beautiful and
useful presents were showered upon
Miss Jessie Duffey. They left wishing
her a smooth and happy journey through
life and feeling that they had been amply
repaid for the disagreeable night that
they came in. The invited guests were :
