The rush of eastern people to our western country in the past year has awakened our own people and now it in a scramble with them to procure land that hitherto they have let lay idle and have considered It worthless.

Because these childrens children and their children could not live where only one-third their num ber lived. They could not buy land because it would cost from $200.00 $$300.00 per aero and what would it produce would not pay interest ou "Just a liUlc tickling in the throat' " Is that what troubles you?

Druggist Ill IE SHAPE Cashier H. R. Neitzel Will Be Assisted by H. A. Guthman The Journal la pleased to chronicle today a number of important changes which have taken place in the Bank of Murdock, one of the flourishing financial institutions of Cass county, In the first place the bank has in- creased its capital tock from 110.- 000 to $15,000 which furnishes de positors an increased and ample mar gin of safety for their deposits. . Be sides this the number of stockhold ers have been materially Increased by the addition of some of the strongest and most substantial men in that prosperous community and at the present time, the bank nmaers tne folowing gentlemen as its stockhold ers, to-wlt: Messrs. Fred W. Backe meyer, Conrad Baumgarter. Chas. F Guthman, H. A. Guthman, Emil Kuehn, Herman and William Leutch. ens, C. E. Mockenhaupt, Henry Meier jurgen, Louis and Herman R. Neltz el, John C. Stroy, Paul Schewe Eugene T., Arthur and Henry A Tool, George E. Vandenburg, F wolf, Frank and Andy Zoz. These gentlemen are all very well and pop ularly known in the county and are among the most aubstantial men to be found anywhere. Their names are a guarantee of commercial Integ rity. One other change In which Platts- mouth people will be particularly In lerested Is that Henry. A. Guthman the son of our esteemed fellow towns man Frank R. Guthman, assumes the cashlership succeeding 3. w. Goehry, Jr., who goes Into Business for him self in. Idaho. Mr. Guthman has long been connected with the bank at Waterloo, Neb., and Is a tried and trusted banking official. He will as sist materially In promoting the wel fare of the Bank of Murdock and the Journal predicts for him a Jong and successful business career in his new position. . . With these changes the Hank of Murdock becomes ' one of the top notchers in financial institutions in the county, keeping up at the head of the procession and its name will remain as in the pnst a synonym for good business dealing and financial strength. New Theories. Science, In its steady progress,; brings out new theories about the origin or cause of diseases and upon such theories' proposes new methods of treatment. The old doctors were of the opinion that the body is ns strong and as sound ns the stomach and that it quickly declines when the stomach refuses to work. We are of the atime opinion and with us every good observer. Let us try our best to keep our stomach In p erfect con dition, and, should wo notice any ir regularity In its work, let us uho at once Trlner's American Elixir of Bit ter Wine. It will cleanse the Rtom nch, heal every soreness In it, In crease the activity of the glands, and strengthen tho muscles of that organ. Food will then bo readily accepted and thoroughly digested. This rem edy should be taken in dlsenses of the stomach, tiie Intestines and tho nprves. At drug stores. Jos. Trlner, 1 333-1 3:1!) So. Ashland Ave., Chicago, III ' ' MURDOCK yl f s trow fe i J Hardware Heating CASE OF SINE VS. C. H. HELM Defence Claims Court Hat No Venue in Case But is Over ruled by Judge Travis The case of the State vs. Nellgh which was taken up yesterday morn ing by Judge Travis and a Jury is still on for hearing today. Immedi ately upon the state's resting, yester day Attorney Gerlng made a motion to dismiss the case and discharge the prisoner, C. II. Nellgh, as no venue was shown for the court here. The contention of counsel for the defense was that the legal residence of the plaintiff and the defendant was in Cuming county where the parties were living at the time of the alleg ed abandonment. The point was then argued by Mr. Gering for the motion and County Attorney Ramsey in op position last evening. The testimony of the, palintlff and her witnesses were relied upon by the county at torney to sustain his contention that the, legal residence of the parties was here and that the crime of desertion took place here Instead of at. Wlsner. Judge Travis this morning handed down a decision on the qeustlon rais ed by Mr. Gering In which he over ruled the motion to dismiss. He' held in effect that the court here had Juris diction of the case and that sufficient testimony had been Introduced t es tablish a case of residence of this county. To his ruling the defendant excepted. Immediately after his decision the taking of testimony was resumed, the defendant putting in his side of the testimony. The probabilities are that the ense will Come to a conclusion this af ternoon and be submitted to the Jury by night. The testimony which has gone In has been of a rather salacious nature bordering on vulgarity and plentifully interspersed with profan ity. The state seems to have estab lished the fact of the defendant leav ing the plaintiff after she had come home to her parents in this city, as tho defendant returned to this city and remained over night with his wife, leaving the next morning and eturnlng no more. The defense seem to bo that the complaining witness mndo life unbearable for tho defend ant by reason of her constant use of profanity and the calling ,, of vle names to the defendant. Tho defend ant testified this afternoon, , during his cross examination, to t,he fact that he became tired of her. references to him in a vile and Indecent manner and that he left her for that reason. In addition to the plaintiff's testi-j mony regarding tho facts of tho sep eration of the parties, the state pre sented tho testimony of J. C. York, father of the wife, Mrs. J. C. York, her mother, Mr. and Mrs Wllllnm Gravett, all of whoso testimony was corroborative of the facts In the com plaining witness' testimony, to bohio extent.' The defendant had a largo array of witnesses from tho vicinity of Wls ner, Nob., who testified to tho lang uage used by tho complaining witness, whenever she referred to her hus band, theso being Mrs. Llllio Wildl, Mrs. Fred Rudiibusche, Mrs. A. E. B. Nellgh, tho defandnnt's mother, Am brose Nellgh, defendant's brother, I). J Brazda, Jas. Brnzda and II L. lllnes. Tho defendant when on tho stand testified In addition to reciting the language his wlfo was alleged to have used toward him, the fact that she pulled his hair, beat htm up and treated him generally In a scandalous manner, lie also denied ho had ever done anything to provoke her nssnults and that all he did to protest against every time when it comes to pelting the best value in Hardware.

He admitted on cross examination that he had taken hold of her to stop her from pulling his hair. There were a number of women at the afternoon session, and they seemed to enjoy the unsavory details of the testimony to tho limit. At the hour of going to press the case was still on the grind and the defendant was being cross examined. A Delightful Event. A very delightful little party was given by Miss Rachel Livingston sev eral evenings ago, to a number of her young friends in this city. The party consisted of a sleigh ride and a fine time was had. Sleighs were called into requisition and the party enjoyed a fine drive over the snioth, hard road of this vicinity, the bright moonlight aiding largely In making, the evening one of enjoyed pleasure. After some time spent In this way, the party repaired to the home of he young lady south of the city where her mother, Mrs. B. W. Livingston, had prepared a sumptuous luncheon for the party and where the remaind er of the evening was spent. In ad dition to the feast which was fit for ja king, the evening was spent In song and games and when the time came to break up and return to their homes In this city, the party did so with the utmost reluctance.
