Our Belief.
We always believed that the people
are entitled to the best goods their
honestly earned money can buy. This
is especially true in buying medi
cines for the family. Having this in
view the manufacturer of Triner's
merican Elixir of Bitter Wine al
ways tried to make it the best rem
edy and to keep it the best. The
people during the long period sat
isfied itself that this remedy is the
best in all diseases of the stomach
and the intestines, as also in all dis
eases having their origin, in inpure
and weak blood. Use it when weak
pale or yellowish, when your appe
tite is poor, when you are nervous
and irritable, when you have pain in
your stomach or in the intestines. At

A complaint was filed before the
insanity commission yesterday charg
ing Harry Adair, the young man who
recently came here from Creston, la.,
with insanity. Adair, when he came
to this city about a week ago seemed
to be all right mentally. He pur
chased the restaurant business of
Oliver and Dick Osbourne, in the
Gund building on Fourth street be
tween Main and Vine, and made pre
parations to open up a first class res
taurant. Christmas day he exhib
ited some symptoms of dementia and
and Saturday and Sunday he was
badly troubled with delusions, im
agining that everybody was in a con
spiracy to injure him. He discharged
his cook and other help on Saturday
and wanted them arrested upon vari
ous charges which the police inves
tigated and found to be groundless.
Sunday he got out on the street and
beggi'd people to come in and eat
with him as he was running a first
class place and in other ways he
vnade himself noted. He also paint
ed the windows of his restaurant
with signs warning various "spot
ters" and other characters to stay
away or he would make trouble. He
began talking of shooting people and
like doings, and as his condition was
becoming rapidly worse, his rela
tives were notified and they decided
to have him examined.
The examination yesterday devel
oped a flagrant case of dementia.
He had all the illusions of a paran
oiac and was plainly a dangerous

! The light committee of t lie city
(council and the committee from the
; Commercial Club met together last,
j night at the office of Councilman
1 Falter and after a lengthy confer
I ence upon the light question failed to
J reach any conclusion. It was deter

bids for lighting from outside parties
who were reliable and to this end
Councilman Falter was delegated to
make a trip to Omaha, where he will
confer with the local light companies
and see what the prospect is for get
ting them to compete for the con
tract. If all other projects fail it. is
probable that an iron-clad contract
with the local company will be made
by which the company will receive
the lighting contract and in which
they will be required to bind them
selves to put their plant In shape to
do business and enter into such
a bond as will guarantee the faithful
performance of their contract and du
