Shall We Drink Water?
Medical authorities found that many
grave diseases can be traced to drinking
impure water and that many epidemics
resulted from it. We are "a nation of
extreme" and it is no wonder that
someone proposed to quit using water
for drinking. He failed to offer a
substitute for it. Cautious people boil
drinking water before using it, but in
many instances this procedure is quite
impossible. It becomes necessary for
everybody to match the fumation of his
body; as long as they are natural he is
healthy. Should he notice, after drink
ing water, some difficulties, like loss of
appetite, belching, disturbances in the
intestines,he should at once try Triner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine. This
remedy will quickly remove all obstruc
tion of a healthy digestion and will
bring all organs of the body into a
harmonious activity. It will make the
assimilation of food perfect, the blood
pure, the body vigorous. You can rely
on this remedy in all cases of loss of
appetite and of strength. At drug
stores. Jos Triner, 616-622 So. Ash

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

Falls Into a Hole.
Tuesday evening while B. J. Reynolds
was coming to work from his home in
South Park, during the blizzard, think
ing to avoid the drifts, and seeing the
roads better broken than the walk,
took to the street. In doing so he
passed near the corner, where a large
sewer pipe made a culvert crossing the
street. This place he thought he had
passed to the left, but instead, in the
blinding storm he got into the very
place he was trying to avoid, and going
down in the soft snow scraped his shin
bone over the end of the sewer pipe,
raking, he says, about "that much" of
the skin and flesh from his left leg.
Charlie is nursing a very sore shin, at
any event, and no doubt will look two
or three times hereafter when in that
Mr. Charles J.FIeischman and
Miss Pearl liable Fenti
man Happily United
The following is taken from the Elm
wood Leader-Echo:
Wednesday, February 12th, at high
noon, a very pretty wedding was sol
emnized at the farm home of Mr. and
Mrs. J. D. Fentiman in which their
daughter, Miss Pearl Mabel, and Mr.
Charles J. Fleishman formed the con
tracting parties.
Promptly at the stroke of the hour
strains of the beautiful wedding march,
De Tannhauser, were heard through
the rooms, rendered in a delightful
manner by Mrs. L. G. Nash, sister of
the bride. The unattended bridal party
entered the parlor and took their places
near the decorated west window where
Rev. J. B. White of the Christian
church of this place performed the
sacred ceremony, witnessed by only the
immediate relatives of the bride and
groom. After the sincere congratula
tions that were informally showered
upon Mr. and Mrs. Fleischman, the
guests were seated in the dining room
and served to a delicious wedding
The bride's costume was an elegant
Landsdowne decorated with tiney bands
of taffeta ribbon in a conventional de
sign. The groom was neatly attired in
an appropriate black suit.
The bride is the youngest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Fentiman and the twin
sister to Ray. Her girlhood has been
passed in this vicinity, having lived
here all her life. She attended our high
school and formed lasting ties of friend
ship among her school mates. She has
taught for one year in Otoe county.
The groom is the second son of Mr.
and Mrs. Jacob Fleischman, well-to-do
farmers living just west of town. He
has grown to manhood in our midst and
is known as a young man of sterling
character. He is a prosperous young
farmer. Through his business, which
has brought him in contact with so
many farmers, he has won a wide circle
of valued friends.
A number of beautiful and useful
gifts will remind Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Fleischman of the happy occasion.
They left on the 3:28 train that after
noon for St. Paul, Minnesota, where
they will visit the bride's aunt, Mrs. G.
H. Root and family. They will be at
home to their many friends on a farm,
southwest of Elmwood, belonging to
the groom's father, after March 15.
At Their Annual Meeting Declared for
Quarterly Instead of Annual
The Plattsmouth Telephone Company
held their annual meeting on the third
of this month and declared their eighth
annual 10 per cent cash dividend and
voted unanimously to pay the dividends
quarterly hereafter, beginning on April
1st, 1908.
This new plan of paying the dividends
every three months will please many of
the stockholders and will be a great in
ducement for others to invest.
Instead of having to wait till the end
of each year to receive dividends on
the stock, the company will distribute
to the stockholders the profits on Janu
ary 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1, of
each year, thus making the stock a
much more desirable investment.
There is a limited amount of stock
for sale, which can be bought at par
value of $100.00 per share.
Don't wait, but call on or write to T.
H. Pollock, general manager and treas
urer, Plattsmouth, and secure a few
shares of the Platt?mouth Telephone
Company stock.

What One of the Leading Papers in the Great
City of New York lias to Say Regarding
the Great Favorite of the People.
The New York Post, one of the lead
ing papers in New York City, speaks
its piece regarding William Jennings
Bryan's candidacy for the presidency
as follows. The Post is an independent
republican paper:
That Mr. Bryan will be the Demo
cratic candidate for the presidency this
year, if he choose to be, may now be
set down as among the political certain
ties. And those Republican managers
are living in a fool's paradise who think
that it will be a holiday task to beat
him. The forces which make Mr.
Bryan's candidacy formidable are not
hidden. He has a vast and idolizing
personal following. Its vote can be
transferred to no other. As a cam
paigner he has inexhaustible physical
energy, and endless resources of agita
tion. And on what willing ears his
appeals would fall in present circum
stances. Are the Republicans not
aware how he retort all their own
favorite argument, upon them with
terrific force? The Republican plat
form of 1896 could be read as an indict
ment of the Republican party of 1908.
All the dire consequence of misgovem
ment therein set forth are now swarm
ing home to condemn Republican poli
Leonard Born Is Back From
Pierce, Knox and Other
Northern Counties of
This State.
Leonard Born returned home last
evening from the northern part of the
state where he has been for a number
of days. Last Friday he departed for
Plainview, where he attended the
funeral of his old friend, Henry G.
Falter, which occurred at that place on
last Saturday. Here Mr. Born visited
with friends, and later in Knox county,
with other friends, visiting at the home
of August Gustafson, at Oakland. He
found the folks all glad to see him at
all the places he visited. At Oakland
he visted at the home of II. P. Sundale,
where in order to get to the house he
had to shovel through snow four feet
deep on the level, and after he had
gotten to the poarch, sweep the snow
off with a broom. The folks were ov
erjoyed to see him, and treated him
like a prince. Mr. Born says that the
the people are situated nicely at these
points and at Oakland they are doing
exceptionally well, being finely sit
uated. In Justice Court.
Henry James Lambert of Nehawka
is bringing suit against Oscar Samson,
for an accounting, claiming to have
given him a sum of money amounting
to near thirty-five dollars to take care
of for him, and now refuses to account
for it. There being no appearance on
the part of the defendant, judgment
was rendered against him for the
amount with interest from the first of
last November. From the testimony
offered, it appears that the plaintiff
gave the money to his foreman while
working on the rip-rap for safe keep
ing, and when he desired it he could
not regain possession of it. Judgment
was rendered accordingly.
Depart for Republican Convention.
This morning a number of the Platts
mouth citizens departed for Weeping
Water, where they will mix medicine
and do other things with the hope that
they will bring results. Judge A. N.
Sullivan said, as he departed, that they
were going to save the country, and
that the "Saving Process" would be in
operation as soon as the convention was
called to order. Those who went from
this place were in charge of Sheriff
Quinton and were H. A. Schneider, A.
J. Beeson, A. N. Sullivan. W. H. New
ell, John H. Becker, J. M. Robertson,
George L. Farley and Henry C. Mc
Maken. The Governor Will Attend
A special from Lincoln, under date of
yesterday, says: "Governor Sheldon
will attend the Cass county republican
convention tomorrow. The governor is
deeply interested in securing a delega
tion to Chicago pledged to the support
of Secretary Taft and he will make a
speech at the meeting tomorrow."

tics. A panic has come under Republi
cans rule. Business has suFcrnl deep
hurt; mills have shut clown, thousands
of men are out of work, the unemploy
ed throng the cities; the resources of
charity are trained to provide for those
in want by no fault of their own. Does
any Republican leader in his senses
doubt that Mr. Bryan could make great
play with these undeniable facts?
Bearing in mind his extrodinary gifts as
an agitator, and remembering how in
variably the party in power loses jopu
lar support when depression overtakes
industry and cripples enterprise, no one
but a Republican drunk with compla
cency could deny that coming
campaign will test his party to the
It is no time for the boastful cry
that any good Republican can beat
Bryan. Some good Republicans, even
among those now mentioned for the
Presidency, would be overwhelmed by
him. We believe that the seriousness
of the crisis which confronts the Re
publican party in the candidacy of Mr.
Bryan will more and more impress it
self upon its shrewder leaders, and will
lead them to cast about to find the very
best men they have got to pit against
Return Engagement of the Italian
Opera Company.
Omaha is have a return engagement
of the Italian grand opera company,
which made such a sensation in that
city a few weeks ago. The company
is one of the largest and most perfectly
equipped of any that has toured this
country. It numbers 1 10 people, has a
large and efficient orchestra, and a
chorus that is already noted through
out the land. For the return engage
ment, four of the most popular operas
ever written have been selected. The
season opens on Monday, February 21th
with "Aida;"Tuesday night "Traviata;"
will be the bill; "Carmen" will be sung
at the Wednesday matinee; and the en
gagement will close with "Faust" o
Wednesday evening. These operas
serve to present all of the great princi
pals in their best parts, and besides, are
operas that have long since become
classics. There is a momentary charm
and pleasure derived from hearing the
modern operas, but only in these works
of the masters do we find music of
that sublime character which makes its
life immortal. It is indeed fortunate
that such works are to be presented so
near us by such a splendid organization
and it is probable that a large patron
age will be in attendance.
The scale of prices will range from
50 cents to $2, according to location.

Drops Dead White Shoveling Snow
A special from Tabor, Iowa, under
date of yesterday, says: "A severe
storm raged all day yesterday and last
night, practically stopping travel and
traffic. The public schools and colleges
closed yesterday and this forenoon a
large force was employed all day shovel
ing snow to get the Tabor & Northern
trains through. A. G. West, a jeweler
and life-long resident, fell dead this
morning from heart trouble. He went
j out cleaning walks and was found about 4
half an hour later. He leaves a widow,
' a married daughter and one son." The
! deceased was known to several residents
. of Plattsmouth.
Say it Was Suicide
Justice F. G. Day was at Pacific
Junction Friday and concluded the in
quest on the Italian that was killed
there last Tuesday. The verdict of the
coroner's jury was that the deceased
1 came to his death by suicide. It is
supposed that he was killed byNo.4,but
the crew of that train testify that no
such man rode on the train that morn
ing from Henton to the Junction. From
the the manner in which the Italians
are turning up dead in various parts of
the country these days, it is just possi
lbe that the "Black Hand" may have
had something to do with this death.
