purpose. I then tried Electric Bitters,
and they cured me. I now take them
as a tonic, and they keep me strong

The Kind You Have Always Bought
WANTS HER TO
SETTLE HER BILL
Lincoln Hotel Wants Mrs- Latky
to Pay Overdue Bill.
The Royal hotel, represented by Levi
Munson has filed a bill of particulars in
Justice Bacon's court relating to a case
against Mrs. Mary A. Latky, which
claims that Mrs. Latky is at present
indebted to the above hotel in the
amount of $57:50 for service rendered
her during the past three years. It is
alleged that when the grand lodge of
the Degree of Honor would meet in
Lincoln, Mrs. Latky who is grand chief
of honor, would come to the hotel and
make her headquarters there, contend
ing that the amount of business which
she brought to the hotel was payment
sufficient for the use of the rooms which
fhe occupied. Munson further inform
ed the court that she had been in the
habit of inviting friends and having
their bills included in her account. This
year the Degree of Honor lodge and
the officers have their headquarters at
another hotel and no business is being
turned to the plaintiff hotel. Mr. Mun
son alleges that no part of this indebt
edness has been paid and that the de
fendant has refused to admit the validity
of the account. State J urnal.
VVill Perform an Operation.
William Weber accompanied by Dr.
E. W. Cook, were passengers
this morning for Omaha, being called
their by the illness of Miss Lucille
Weber who is suffering from an attack
of appendicitis. Miss Weber with her
sister, Margaret, went to Omaha yes
terday morning and was taken down
with the disease. It was decided that
an operation was necessary and Mr.
Weber was notified. He wanted his
own physician present, hence the party
this morning. The operation will be
performed at Immanuel Hospital today.
Miss Lucille Weber has a host of friends
in this city all of whom are shocked
and pained to hear of her sudden illness
and all of whom unite in hoping that
the operation will be a complete suc
cess, and that the young lady will soon
be back home well and hearty. News
of her condition will be awaited with
A telephone message this afternoon
from Dr. Davis, w-ho was the principal
surgeon at the operation upon Miss
Weber, to her mother in this city, con
tained the joyful intelligence that Miss
Weber had gone through the operation
splendidly and was in good shape, with
every indication of a speedy recovery.
This is glad news for the young lady's
many friends, whose joy is unbounded
over her prospect for a quick return to
home and friends in this citv.
A Very Sick Woman.
Mrs. Balbina Lozorka, of Allenport,
Pa., was suffering for a long time.
She says; "I was so sick with my
stomach that I could not eat anything
and besides this had severe attacks of
heart pains, which I believed would
suddenly end my life. Triner's Amer
ican Elixir of Bitter Wine was then
recommended to me and it certainly
proved to be the best medicine tor me.
It is a pity that so many people do not
know the value of it." Yes, it is a
pity, because people would never look
for another remedy in dieseases of the
digestive organs. It will make the
stomach work, will strengthen the
nerves and purify the blood. Should
you need advice in any illness, write
to Jos. Triner, 616-622 So. Ashland

at 2 p. m. Mr. Esser speaks in German
in District Court Finds
Him Hot Guilty.
The jury which heard the case of the
State vs. Dailey all day yesterday, re
tired last night and after deliberating
all night on the matter found the de
fendant not guilty. This is one of the
cases growing out of the burglary of
the Wolf and Barclay business
houses in Cedar Creek. The evidence
did not satisfy the jury that Dailey was
the guilty party as it was largely cir
cumstantial, and there was doubt as to
whether he or some of the other three
men in the car with him was responsi
ble for the goods which were found in
the car all the circumstances making
the jury doubtful of guilt. Immediate
ly upon the rendering of the verdict.
County Attorney Rawls rose and dis
missed the case against Jos. Shaw also
informed against for the same offense.
There were two witnesses held in jail
to testify in the cases and these were
of course released. It is understood
these two men contend they are entitled
to witness fees for the time they were
in jail, a point new and novel. It is not
known whether or not they will attempt
to make the county foot the bill or not.
As soon as the criminal docket was
cleared, Judpe Travis excused the jury
until next Monday morning, Oct. 12.
Other matters before the court were
the sustaining of a motion in the case
of Whelan vs. the City of Plattsmouth
made by the plaintiff to strike matter
from the answer of the defendant.
The defendant excepted. The defend
ant has until Saturday morning to file
an amended answer.
In Henton vs. Woodman of the World,
the plaintiff had leave to amend his
petition by interlineation instanter.
In the case of Krampier vs. Kram -pier
et al, the report of the referee was
confirmed and approved and an order
entered accordingly. Referee's bond
fixed at $20,000.
In the case of Page, executrix &c.
vs. Page et al the sale was confirmed
and the deed ordered.

A Strong Attraction.
Rowland and Clifford's lastest produc
tion is Peter (I. Piatti's dramatization of
Charlotte Bronte's popular novel "Jane
Eyre." This play is so intensely human
that it holds something of interest for
theatre goers of every class. The char
acters are true to life, hence lovable
and easily sympathized with. None of
the little short-comings so prevalent in
all of us have been rubbed away for
passing effect, so every character is
palpitating and interesting because of
this very humanity, which is the key
note of this truly fine play. A superb
company equally balanced in all its
units has been especially selected to in
terest each part, and they give a per
formance tnoroughly in harmony with
the author's conception of each indi
vidual character. This performance is
meeting with unqualified success every
where. "Jane Eyre" will nave a pre
sentation in this city Monday Oct. 12.

If the painting cotts two or three
times as much as the paint, and one
paint goes twice as far as anot her, how
much are those two paints worth?
If Devoe is worth $l.r,0oi ?1.7", a gal

How much is a gallon of paint, worth
The answer is: Depends on the paint.
The reason is: paint isn't always
paint. There are true and false paint
How much is a short-mes'suse gallon
worth? How much is false paint worth?
