The old saying about March coming
in like a lamb and going out like the
Hon, is going to have a chance to
be vindicated this month. Yesterday,
the first day of the month, was the
proverbal spring day and the chances
are that the last day will resemble
winter In all its severity.
The World-Herald boasts of its
success in securing want ads for the
Sunday paper and is it quite Justified.
The World-Herald has a large and
growing circulation and the advertis

Tho success which met the efforts
of the Council Bluffs gang to fleece
the unwary out of their good, hard

Editor Rosewater Is very busy dis

ter need not worry over Mr. Bryan
being discredited by tho Nebraska
legislature. Anytime W. J. Bryan
goes before the legislature and shows
them why they should do certain
things, and why they should not do
certain things, he Is listened to and
generally his advice Is accepted.
Those senators from Tennessee
who fled from tho state
rather than give tho republican

done for four years longer and by
that time the trusts will probably
have ended all competition and be
powerful enough to laugh at the people.

An Unusual Proceeding.
In accordance with the provisions
of an act passed by the last legisla
ture an order was made today in the
matter of the Estate of Lucy A.
Haight which amounts to a final de
cree. This Is the case where Attor
ney Clarence Tefft some time since
filed a petition setting forth that
Lucy A. Haight died some time since
in the village of Avoca, possessed of
certain real estate there which was
exempt from execution or sale under
the law. The petition also recited
that tho deceased had no debts for
which her estate would be liable and
set forth the names of the heirs to
the estate. It asked that notice be
given and a hearing had upon the
facts alleged In tho petition and if
the same were found to be true that
tho court make an order distributing
the estate and dispensing with fur
ther administration. This hearing
was had this morning and the court
found the facts set forth in the pe
tition to be true. As the provta'.oc
of tho act under which the petition
was filed provided the county court
could by decree end further probate
proceedings, this was done and a de
cree of distribution of the estato en
tered. By this means the time and
expense Incident to an admlnistra
tlon of the estate Is avoided. The
proceeding Is the first of the kind
ever had In this county, if not In tho
state, and the design and Intent of

Prof. H. A. Howell, of Havana, Cuba,
"As long as I can remember my
mother was a faithful user and flrend
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, but
never In my life have I realized its
true value until now," writes Prof.
II. A. Howell, of Howell's American
School, Havana, Cuba. "On the
night of February 3, our baby was
taken sick with a very bad cold, the
next day was worse and the follow
ing night his condition was desper
ate. He could not He down and it
was necessary to have him in tho
arms every moment. Even then his
breathing was difficult. I did not
think that he would live until morn
ing. At last I thought of my moth
er's remedy, Chamberlaln"s Cough
Remedy, which we gave, and it af
forded prompt relief and now three
days later, he has fully recovered.
Under the circumstances I would not
hesitate a moment in saying that

The Play That Impresses.
Whether the president or Wall
Street Is responsible for conditions
In fianaclal difficulties, all depends
on the angle of observation. But
it is remarkable that a dramatist,
presumably unfamiliar with the finer
points of business methods, should
play the role of seer and anticipate
that upheaval in business and the
downfall of the so-called mighty
In money circles as has Charles
Klein in "The Lion and the Mouse."
A newspaper recently said, in refer
ence to this play, "If the president
really thinks of taking a third whack
at graft and high finance, we respect
fully commend to his managers a per
formance of "The Lion and the
Mouse" in each city as being more
potent than a regiment of speakers
or an army of "boosters."
