The Right Spirit.
We point with pride to the way the
men of Avoca searched the freight
train that passed through here Sunday
night, for the two men who killed Mr.
C. A. Ralston. Within fifteen minutes
after order was received to stop the
train and search it, at least fifty men
and boys gathered at the depot armed.
Every car was thoroughly searched,
while men all along the train guarded
it. We think these men should be
commended for what they did. They
displayed considerable bravery, and not
the spirit that was heard in Weeping
Water. Everybody knows only a few
men in Weeping Water tried to catch
these men. Monday morning a man
was heard to say on the streets of that
town that the law was weak for not
offering a reward for every murderer.
If they were waiting for the reward,
and the money to take them out, they
are to be pitied. What a pitiful tale.
that an American citizen would not go
out to help catch a pair of desperadoes,
because there was no money in sight.
On an occasion of tbis kind we think
the Avoca people displayed the proper
spirit. A dozen men went to Weeping
Water Sunday night armed, and
many have gone every day since, with
out asking for pay or waiting for a reward.
While the democrats of Cass county
did remarkably well Tuesday, the Jour

William J. Bryan is too honest to
ever be elected president asjlong as the
trusts and millionaires can pull the
reigns over the common people, and
this will be done as long as the republi
can party can retain government control.
Election returns indicate that
Bryan, ShalIenberger,for governor, and
Maguire for congress, and the entire
democratic state have been successful
in Nebraska. If this is the case, the
democrats have something to crow
about, at least.

How to Cure a Cold.
Be as careful as you can you will oc
casionally take cold, and when you do,
get a medicine of known reliability, one
that has an established reputation and
that is certain to effect a quick cure.
Such a medicine is Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. It has gained a world wide
reputation by its remarkable cures of
this most common ailment, and can
always be depended upon. git acts on
nature's plan, relieves the lungs, aids
expectoration, opens the secretions and
aids nature in restoring the system to
a healthy condition. During the many
years in which it has been in general
use we have yet to learn of a single
case of cold or attack of the grip hav
ing resulted in pneumonia when this
remedy was used, which shows conclu
sively that it is a certain preventive of
that dangerous disease. Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy contains no opium or
other narcotic and may be given as con
fidently to a baby as to an adult. For
