VISIT TO THE
Col. M. A. Eates Meets Many
Old Friends in Lincoln.
The wrl(r spent a few hours at
the state capital Monday, and had
the pleasure of meeting many of
those who served with us two years
ago, and with whom we spent a few
pleasant moment. Several of the
members of the Louse two years ago
are now members of the senate. The
fact Is the legislature Is doing some
good work of some of the best meas
ures already Introduced do not lose
out In the sifting committee room
the last two weeks of the session. The
time is up for the Introduction of
bills, and It Is estimated that fully
eight hundred have been presented In
the house and over five hundred In
tho senate. The chance of all those
bills getting through Is very slim,
and perhaps some that should go
through will be lost in the shuffle.
The capital removal question will lose
out, even If It ever comes up again.
That Is tho opinion of many who have
heretofore been In favor of removal.
Senator Panning wields considerable
Influence In the senate and Is right In
the front rank of the leaders of that
branch of the legislature. In the
house Hon. C. E. Mitzger Is one of
the most prominent members and is a
hard worker. He is very popular
with all and there 13 no question as
to his making good in the way of do
ing good work for his constituents.
Hons. W. II. Puis and Fred Nutzman,
while unpretentious In their work,
are both Incessant laborers and nre
ever watchful to the interests of their
section of the country and the people.
Wo had the pleasure of an Interview
with Speaker Kuhl, and he gave us
the glad hand the same as ever. His
elevation to the speakership does not
swell his head In the least and we
found him to be the same John Kuhl.
Chief Clerk Richmond Is making
good and Is very popular with all the
members. He Is filling the position
to the credit of himself and the legis
lature. Take it all In all, we enjoyed
our visit and was highly elated with
the warm greeting tendered us by
our friends, many of whom regretted
that we were not with them in this

violation of the occupation ordinance

stated this morning on the street that
he expected to be beaten In the first

KIDNEY DISEASES AMONG .
HORSES AND THEIR CURE
Diseases of the kidnejs and
urinary system in horses has been
well known for more than 33 years,
and have been described by various
authorities, and as long ago as 1890
the Agricultural Department at
Washington published accounts of
the treatment of such diseases, an.t
for more than 33 years W. D. Jones,
of Plattsmouth, Nebraska, has suc
cessfully treated all such diseases.
More than 35 years ago John Fite
gerald had a fine tea nigo dowu on
the street in this city with the same
form of kidney and urinary disease,
both of which were effectually treated
and cured by Mr. Jones. More thas.
13 years ago Mr. Holschuh had a fine
team go down with the same disease,
and upwards of 12 years ago Mr.
Henry Kaufman had horses affected
in like manner with kidney disease,
and In each Instance Mr. Jones treat
ed and cured the horses. Many other
instances could be cited. Ask Mr.
Rhoden or Mr. Eddie Todd or scores
of other stockmen who have tried
Jones' Kidney Medicine and Colie
Cure. Any one who says that suck
diseases have not been known more
than five years is Ignorant of what he
Is talking about.
Jones' Cleansing Powder for purify
ing the blood and stimulating the ap
petite, Is especially valuable for
horses at this season of the year.
Jones' Llnainent for horses Is un
excelled for cuts (especially barbwire
cuts), and sore Bhoulders.
Jones' Eye Lotion for weak eyes or
blue eyes, and all eye diseases, has o
super'or on the market.
In all cases of cattle suffering from
sore mouth and enlarged tongue
caused from eating poisonous and
Irritant plants In dry pastures, can be
cured with twenty cents' worth of
medicine given in the mouth of the
suffering animal. .
Farmers neglect the proper care of
the horse's teeth, probably more thaa
anything else in the care of their
stock. Mr. William D. Jones Is pro
pared to dress the teeth and render
all necessary service in treatlug
horses, cattle and other stock.
All of the above medicines are pre
pared by F. Q. FIcke & Co., riatts
mouth, Nebraska, w here they may k
obtained at any time.
