A Great Responsibility. ,
Everyone of us has some respon
sibility, that Is, towards ourselves,
our family, our country and the
whole human race. In order to ful
fill all our duties we must, In the
first place, see to It that, both, our
body and cllne of our strength, let us
keep In mind our great responsibil
ity and let us seek help. It is not
necessary to go far for It. Trlner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine Is
one of the best tonics, that will
quickly bring relief. It acts directly
on the stomach and on tho whole
digestive system, stimulating tho or
gans and strengthening them. As
soon ns you will eat and remedy In
all diseases of the stomach and the
Intestines, In poverty of blood and In

Bull Game Saturday.
The local baseball team will play
the Geo. II. Lee team of Omaha at
the Chicago Avenue grounds on next
Saturday, Juno 5. This game ought
to be a cracking good one as the
Lee team is one of the crack Omaha
amateur teams and the locals are
not so slow. They have been putting
In spare moments practicing and
they intend to make a showing which
will surprise the fans. Manager
Warren is giving the boys a course
of sprouts calculated to make real
ball players of them and by Satur
day he hopes to have them with their
batting eyes. The team is furnishing
a good article of ball and well. de
serve the patronage of the public.
The boys will appear next Saturday
for the first time In their new uni
forms and they are a neat, nobby
looking bunch. Turn out and give
them a boost. In addition to the
strong Lees, the locals will play a
strong Atchison, Kas. team In the
near future.
Band Did Fine Work.
Through some oversight, The Jour
nal failed to properly give the Wood
man bnnd credit for the excellent
work which they did last Monday
both on the street and at tho ball
park. The boys were engaged by the
ball club to parade the Main street
and march to the ball grounds and
also give a small concert previous
to and during the game which they
did. It Is hardly necessary to sav
they played some fine music for they
have already an established reputa
tion for furnishing the real goods
despite their only having been prac
ticing a short time. They. play In
time and have splendid expression
and are altogether a mighty good
outfit to llBten to. It was Intended
to have an appreciation of the band
appear with the account of the ball
game but it was misplaced Is some
manner and overlooked.
Tho members of the ball team de
sired that an expression of their ap
preciation of the band boys bo print
ed and that their public thanks be
extended them for their services.
SM-iial Policeman.
The mayor today swore In Alex
Blsand as a special police for the
Burlington yards. Ills duties will
bo too keep the yards clear of bums
and tresspassers and to protect the
company's property. For sometime
past the company has been annoyed
and has suffered quite a bit of
loss by reason of pnrtles breaking
glass In passenger cars and cabooses
and destroying cushions and In other
ways defoclng and Injuring cars. In
addition these cars have been used
for Immoral purposes by parties who
gained access thereto and tho com
pany Is determined to put a stop to
tho practice. It Is more than pro
bablo Mr. Illsend will work In con
Junction with the city pollco to see
that tho new garbago ordinance Is
enforced. The appointment ennnot
fall to bo a value to tho public as
well as tho company and the move
Is a commendable one.
Traffic Very Heavy.
The State Journal says that Bur
lington trains that left Lincoln for

there was no space left In the sleep,
ers, while the day conches were fill
ed. No. 14, for tho northwest, car
ried an Omaha crowd of homeseek
ers going to tho northwest. This
troln carried fourteen cars and every
car wbs loaded. Other roads re
ported an equally heavy business.
Yesterday was homosoekers day and
many people left the city for long
trips searching for land.

warded her with round after round
of applauso. She seemed as proud
as her many friends of the present
which was a handsome set of silver
knives, forks nnd spoons.
' The contest for the most popular
young lady alHo was a warm one,
there being severnl entries whlchj
finnlly narrowed down to two Miss
