Neglected Colds Threaten Life.
(Chicago Tribune)
"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

General Demand
of the Well-informed of the World has
always been for a simple, pleasant and
efficient liquid laxative remedy of known
value; a laxative which physicians could
sanction for family use because its com
ponent parts are known to them to be
wholesome and truly beneficial in effect,
acceptable to the system and gentle, yet
prompt, in action.
In supplying that demand with its ex
cellent combination of Syrup of Figs and
Elixir of Senna, the California Fig Syrup
Co. proceeds along ethical lines and relies
on the merits of the laxative for its remark
able success.
That is one of many reasons why
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is given
the preference by the Well-informed.
To get its beneficial effects always buy
the genuine manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co., only, and for sale
by all leading druggists. Price fifty cents
per bottle.

A special from Grand Island, under

Hanna and Paul, in the district court
today overruled the demurrer filed by
the state to the petition of R. B.
Howell of the Soldiers' and Sailors'
home, restraining the state board from
interfering in any way with the pen

in this state. In the absence of any
representative of the state boaid, an
exception was filed for them, both
judges further concurring, and it was
indicated that time would be given
them to indicate if they desired to
stand on the demurrer, or have further
hearing. The allegations in the peti
tion were sustained and the injunctions

from carrying out the order to take

Awaken From Your Peaceful Slumbers to Hear
Sweet Music That Tells You That Burg
lars Are Around the House
A great many people have planned
different sorts of receptions for burg
lars, but no one has ever given con
sideration to the musical sense of that
fraternity until C. R. Lerch,of Winth
rop street, Brooklyn, arranged a lyre
shaped harp upon his door to serve the
double purpose of welcoming friends
with harmonious sounds and providing
an agreeable surprise to burglars says
the New York Tribune. When a burg
lar opens the door the same musical
tones which greet him acquaint his
intended victims with his presence be
fore he has had even time to think of
spoons. The harp will vibrate loudly
enough to awaken any sleeper of the
average sort. Of course there are
sleepers who never blink an eyelid at
the most resounding nocturnal noises.
Such sleepers would need the report of
a cannon to awaken them to the fact
that burglars were appraising their
jewelry and biting their silver to learn
whether or not it was plated. The or
dinary person, however, whose nerves
respond more or less to unusual sounds
in the night, will immediately awaken
at the vibrations of the harp burglar
alarm and secure the necessary weapons
to welcome the uninvited guest should
he fail to take the musical hint given
upon the threshhold of the house and
leave for more silent domains.
The cadences of the harp are much
more resounding when it is strung with
piano wires. These keep in tune and

appeal the case from the district to the
supreme court. ,
Judge Paul commented upon the
modifications of the Nebraska act and
for the establishment, maintenance and
government of the home. It had first
placed the power of passing upon ap
plications and membership in a visiting
and examining board; it later changed
it and placed it in the hands of the
county commissioners of each county.
That disposed of one question. The
act provided that the state maintain a
home. It made appropriations there
for. It did not provide for th appro
priation of monies therefor in any
other way than through the legislature.
Judge Paul also held that the intention
of the legislature was clearly inimical
to such power, for a moral obligation
was admitted by the public generally
as going out to the veteran soldiers.
Society, generally, acknowledged this
obligation io the men who had given
three of four of their best years
years in which, ordinarily, men educate
themselves for the battle of life, or
become established in business for the
common benefit, as is demonstrated by
the pension act, and it was not the

state to appropriate any part of thin

Mr Lerch's musical burglar alarm
has a sounding board made of white
mahogany, and curved sides of cypress,
to the upper ends of which are attached
small ornaments carved in the shape of
harps. It is strung with mandolin or
piano wires and has a key which will
tune it up to an octave. To the cross
bar at the top of this lyre-shaped in
strument are attached silken strings of
different lengths, weighted with metal
balls a little larger than marbles. The
strings are so arranged that the slight
est movement of the door will set the
balls to vibrating against the wires in a
pleasant concord of sweet sounds. The
vibration will continue for GO seconds,
when the musical chords will softly die
away into silence.
Visitors are inspired with a pleasur
able feeling when greeted at the door
by weirdly sweet sounds, the source of
which they do not always- see. The
burglar, on the contrary, nonplused.
He does not know what the sounds
mean whether they will increase or
diminish in volume, nor whether they
serve as a gentle hint that a trap has
been sprung or something more violent
placed near at hand for his entertain
ment. He seldom feels encouraged to
investigate, especially as he knows
that only an unusually sound sleeper.or
a deaf person, could continue to slum
ber after the harp had began to play.
