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.

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 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. (MB Court Rules Intention of Law is That Caro Shall be Given Veterans Regardless of Their Pensions A Right eous Decision. A special from Grand Island, under date of February 12, says: "Judge 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 sions of the members of the two homes 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 remains, preventing the state board from carrying out the order to take part of the pension monies of all re ceiving over $12 per month, and also restraining the commandants of the Grand Island and Milford homes from interfering in any way with the mem bers thereof, owing to noncompliance with the enjoined rule. It is expected, as was announced from Lincoln today, that the state board will immediately AMAZING BLOODLESS CURDS. As great as were the recent cures in Europe they are greater in America to day.

With special instructions used by no other doctor they can diagnose diseases so accurately that patients are astonish ed, especially because they do not ask a single question in finding the cause of diseases. The validity of their claims can be tested by all who write for appointment card. Tneir ad stating time to cure A QOm BURGLAR 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 P Diseases a Specialty, THE GERMAN SPECIALISTS, S32 Broadway, Council Bluffs, la. T KEEP TIB IMM 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 intention of the legislature of this state to appropriate any part of thin money." various diseases appears elsewhere in this paper. Resign His Position. Chas Crabill has tendered his resign ation as carrier of the rural mail route running out of this place, and will go to New Mexico in the near future, take a claim and become a farmer. The resignation is tendered to take effect on the first of March. Soon after which Charles expects to go to the south-west with the intention on stay ing. Mrs. G. F. S. Berton was a visitor in Omaha this afternoon. ALARU DEVI require less tightening up than do man dolin wires, which are so used for this instrument. 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.
