A. D. S, Druggist
Team Han Away.
The fine large team of McMaken &
Son yesterday afternoon indulged, in
a runaway which might have had
disastrous results to the animals but
for the rarest good fortune. They
broke from the hitching rack in front
of the office of McMaken & Sons on
south Sixth street and made a lively
run up Chicago avenuo until they
came to the homo of Mrs. Agnes
Chapman where one of the animals
then the other fell. The one falling
first was dragged quite a ways. A. II.
Koubek and a number of other citi
zens in the neighborhood at the time
saw the team fall and hurried to
them. Mr. Joe McMaken came up a
little later and had quite a Btruggle
with one of the animals berore it was
gotten on Its feet uninjured. By the
greatest good fortune there were no
serious damage done either of the
animals, although for a few moments
ft looked as if at least one would be
bndly crippled.
A few minutes delay in treating
some cases of croup, even the length
of time it takes to go for a doctor
aften proves dangerous. The safest
way is to keep Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in the house, and at the first
indication of croup give the child a
dose. Pleasant to take and always
cures. Sold by all dealers.
Delightful Visit.
Robt. Propst and mother who have
been spending several weeks at their
old home near Dubuque, la., return
ed to their homo at Mynard this
morning, coming via Omaha. They
had a delightful visit, especially the
aged lady, who found quite a num
ber of good friends and relatives
still living near the old home. Al
though they had some severe weather
during the time they were away, they
did not let that interfere with them
and their friends made them forget
all about It. Both are looking fine
after their trip and seem to have im
proved wonderfully during their vaca
tion. Despite all this they were glad
to once more get back to Nebraska
soil and meet their good friends in
this neighborhood.

Knights and Ladies of Security
Plan Big Time Monday
Arrangements are being made for
a grand observance on next Monday
evening, February 21, of the four
teenth anniversary of the founding of
the local council of the Knights and
I Ladies of Security and a fine program
Is being prepared for the occasion,
j The program will consist of music,
, oratory and all the enjoyable things
whicli such an occasion calls forth.
mere win he a number or prominent
visitors present from abroad Includ
ing Mrs. Clarke, the national con
ductor of the order and Hon. John A.
Dempster and wife who were so in
strumental in the organization of the
local council. Mr. Dempster Is now
'one of the most prominent Insurance
men of the west and his views on
insurance subjects are fii great de
mand. He will deliver an nddrcss
which will be of great Interest to all
whether members of fraternal Insur
ance orders or not. In addition ar
rangements have been perfected for
a very enjoyable time for all who
attend and the program has been so
nrranged that there will bp something
for everyone to enjoy.
The growth of the Knights and
Ladles of Security since the founding
of the council In this city has been
little short of marvelous and all In
dication point to a continuance of
their wonderful prosperity. In 1896
when the local council was formed
the order had a membership of 10,
000. It's reserve fund at that time
was about $25,000. Today the mem
bership of the order hovers around
the 100,000 mark while the reserve
has grown to the sum of $1,500,000.
The reserve fund which is now being
adopted by nearly every fraternal
order in the country as the base of
strength, was first called into active
use by the Knight and Ladles of
Security. They originated the idea
that a fraternal insurance organiza
tion should have a reserve financial
strength sufficient to Insure Its sound
ness and this Idea has spread and
grown until now this Is recognized as
the only Bound principal upon which
such an order Bhould be founded.
The growth and strength of the
order Is well reflected In the local
council which has steadily grown In
membership In this city and which
has strengthened its financial stand
ing until it is one of the strongest
if not the strongest fraternal order
In the city. The membership Is com
posed as the name would indicate, of
both gentlemen and ladles and much
of the success which has attended It,
has been due to the work of the
latter who have ever taken a deep
Interest In its success. Their good
work will bo in evidence Monday
evening when the excellent program
which has been prepared will bo rend
ered. If troubled with indigestion, con
stipation, no appetite or feel bilious,
give Chamberlain's Stomach and Liv
er Tablets a trial and you will bo
pleased with tho result. These tab
lots Invigorate the stomach and liver
and strengthen the digestion. Sold by
all dealers.

zens from Just south of tho city,
spent tho morning here attending to
business matters.
