Father and I lube.
Claude Hostettler and his little in
fant child arrived in Murray Wednes
day morning, enroute to the home of
his father and mother, residing east
of town, where he and the little babe
will make their home for some time.
It was indeed a sorrowful sight to
see the almost broken-hearted young
man step from the train with the lit
tle child wrapped so snugly and so
gently carried in his arms. It was
the last request of his young wife
that he go with their child to his
mother, and remain until the little
one was a certain age, after which
she wanted It to remain with him
wherever he might be and under his
musical training become a great mu
sician. This request was being car
ried out, and Mr. Hostettler expects
to remain on the farm with his father
and mother for an Indefinite time
having resigned his position with the
music firm with whom he had been
employed in Denver, where a few
months ago this happy young couple
had planned to make their future
home. Mr. Hostettlf. though a
young roan, is one who bears his pres
ent sorrowful hours, and many they
will be, with a brave heart. He has
the deepest sympathy of the entire

Most Pleasant Surprise.

pleasant surprise when 'a party of

party. The party comprised Fathers
Moran of St. Thomas orphanage and
O'Brien of the Cathederal, both of
Lincoln; Father Murphy of Davie and
Father Lougnot of Alverno. The
party came in on the flyer last even
ing and paid their visit to Father
Shine over night returning to their
respective homes this noon on the
fast mall. As a memento of their call
they presented their host with a
handsome black, walrus skin, trav
eling bag a gift which Father Shine
appreciates not alone for Its intrinsic
value which is great, but for the as
sociations which surround it and the
pleasant recollections It recalls of
his excellent friends. The visitors
were all personal friends and coin

What is Pain?
It is a long time agon since a cel
ebrated physician said that pain is
a prayer of the nerves for food.
As soon as blood cannot supply the
nerves with the necessary nourish
ment, pain, or, at least some dis
comfort Is felt. Blood can nourish
the nerves only when the digestive
organs are working perfectly, be
cause strong blood is made of well
digested food. If you are nervous, of
a muddy complexion, weak and Indis
posed, use Triner's American Elixr of
Bitter Wine which will regulate your
digestion, purify your blood and give
plenty of nourishment to your nerves.
