FROM THE BUSY WORLD.
A. B. Crandal of Lincoln has called
upon the police of that municipality
to suppress all noise at his approach
ing nuptials. Crandall has a lurk
ing Idea that he has friends who will
make an undue celebration of his
quitting single blessedness and he
doesn't want them to be allowed to
demonstrate their feeling. He is to
wed Miss Ina Dell of Bethany and Ina

According to the Internal revenue
service in the city of Lincoln, a "dry"
town, used $25,000 worth of beer In
August, 1909. This is something
which those who believe in prohibi
tion should study. It does not mean
that this was all used by Llncolnites
but merely the amount shipped into
the city by rail. What they consumed
by purchase in Havelock and at other
points is not shown In this total.
That $50,000 a month is what Lin
coln "dry" Lincoln used is much
more probable. If any real exhibi
tion of the futility of prohibition is
needed, show us.

A Clean Man
Outside cleanhoeis is less than half the battle. A man'nuy
scrub himself a dozen times a day, and still be unclean. Good
health means cleanliness not only outside, but inside. It means
clean stomach, clean bowels, clean blood, a clean liver, and
new, clean, healthy tissues. The man who is clean in this way
will look it and act it. He will work with energy and think
clean, clear, healthy thoughts.
He will never be trouhled with liver, lunj, stomach or blood
disorders. Dyspepsia and indigestion originate in unclean atom,
achs. Blood diseases are found where there is unclean blood.
vuniumpuun ana oronciutis mean unclean lungs.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
prevents these diseases. It makes a man's insldes clean
and healthy. It cleans the digestive organs, makes pure, '
clean blood, and clean, healthy flesh.
It restores tone to the nervous system, and cures nervous exhaustion and
prostration. It contains no aloohol or habit-forming drugs.
Constipation is the most unclean unclcanliness. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pel.
lets cure it. They never gripe. Easy to take as candy.

ciety at Washington will not pro
ceed to Inspect Dr. Cook's data con
cerning his foray against the north

Copenhagen decision is not at all
likely nor conceivable. There is some
thing very curious about the Cook
case. That a man of his standing
should attempt to perpetrate such a,
collosal fraud as he seems to have
tried Is not conceivable. If this man j
whom was generally recognized as a
scientist before his alleged discovery .
of the pole, has been guilty of the
gigantic swindle with which he is
charged it 13 remarkable how he es

may be true that Dr. Cock is a swind

This morning old Boreas blew out of
