tmasaJIIS simple rule cf health is daily called attention to by every doctor in the land, whose first question to
C ilia patient a!:rcst invariably is, "Are your bowels regular?' Yet there's not one person in fifty who
takes proper care of the bowels. And the result of this foolish neglect is nine-tenths of all ill-health.
If todny yon are unable to free your body of waste matter at the usual time, or it the act causes straining,
pains and discomfort, don't let ihat condition" occur again tomorrow. Unless your bowels can carry away the
waste materials left after food is digested, decay sets in, the poisons of which, taken up by the blood, increase
the risk of Tvphoid Fever, Appendicitis, and many other serious diseases.
In treat in? constipation, there is a right way and a. wrony way. The wrong way is to take harsh purga
tives which even though they do clear the bowels, cause griping and nausea, injure the delicate tissues, and
so disturb the normal functions as to cause the return of constipation. The right way is to help Nature to
produce natural movement, without pain or discomfort, by using ,

Large Attendance and the School
Bond Question the Principal
From Frlday'3 Daily.
Thi question of tho nfotl of
the oily schools, Ihoir crowded
condition and th voting f the
ht.nds for tli now school )iui!dinjr
w'-ii the chief snl).jects to occupy
the attention of the Commercial
clnh lat veiiinjr at thejr meet
inir, and the mallei- wa thr
itu'hly thre.-hed over by the dif
ferent members of the rh:l. The
matter was broulil on by the
submitting of a report from a
committee of the elul tli;U had
visited the schools a few days a fro
lo look over the situation, as they
reported that they did not think
the bonds would carry and that
they thought a few changes and
repairs at the different buildings
miht mak the situation much
better. They favored the build
ing at the Columbian school of
two additional rooms to relieve
the congestion at the Central
building, the placing of additional
rolling partitions in the High
school assembly room to make
additional class room, as well as
the remodeling of a number of the
recitation rooms in order to care
for I he students.
After the reading of the report
ci the commitee, the president of
the club, IUr. Ilichey, asked to
hear from some of the other
members of the club present as to
their opinion on the matter, but
J. M. Roberts moved that the re
port be adopted, and ten votes
were cast for it, while the rest of
the members apparently desired
to hear further of the matter be
fore they expressed their views.
In. view of the extremely light
vote cast in favor of the com
mittee report the motion was in
troduced to reconsider the vole,
which wa carried by a large ma
jority. A. L. Tidd, who was one of the
committee to look over the situa
tion in the schools made a few
remarks in support of the report,
staling that the committee had
looked over the JIii:h school and
Central buildings and found the
-oi!i:esi.'d condition in the
Central building due o the mov
ing of several of the grades from
the Columbian building to that
school. In the llii;h school, he
staled, there were twenty more
now than when he had taught
(here and there was ample sealing
room in the assembly room to ac
commodate all who desired to at
tend the school. He said a num
ber of the recitation rooms were
small, but thought that the re
moving of a number of partitions
would overcome this. The condi
tion of the floor in Ihe Central
building was ery poor and rotten
in some places and also the drink
ing fountains and cups were not
in the most sanitary condition.
Superintendent. Jirooks was
asked by Mr. Ilichey to express
his views on the matter of the
condition of Ihe school, and re
plied by slating that the com
mittee had been mistaken as lo
the grades" moved from the
Columbian school, as the seventh
had been the only one taken to the
Central building and Ihat this was
made necessary by the installing
of the departmental work in the
seventh and eighth grades, and to
erect an addition to the Colum
bian school to move them back
there would prove unsatisfactory,
as it, would mean the changing of
the whole plan of the work of Ihe
school, as well as the shifting of
the pupils. The conditions as to
ventilation and the drinking foun
tains were about as the committee
found, although the school board
and the teachers had done as well
as they could under the circum
stances. J. M. Roberts, who is one of the
members of the school board,
arose and staled that he desired
to make his position clear on the
subject, as when the question of
submitting the matter to the
voters had come up the board was
in .favor of the proposition, with
one exception, and tie was that
one, and he was always willing to
on mailers of public policy, re
ligion or any other mailers that
niilil be in the public mind, lie
look the position that owing to
the condition of the city, be did
not faor Ihe nulling in of manual
training and domestic science, as
the installing of them would en
tail the expense of several addi
tional teachers and litis would
add greatly to Ihe expense of
operating the schools, and that
the limit set by the law was lio
mills for the levy and this would
not near begin to carry on the
work. He was opposed to the
bonds, as he did not believe the
condition of the city warranted
the voting of them. Tn his re
marks Mr. Roberts took the time
to pay bis compliments to the
Journal for a small editorial on
Ihe subject of the school bonds,
and tie stated that lie had paid his
full amount of laves for the
education of his children, as well
as contributed toward the educa
tion of some other children and
desired fo make the statement for
Ihe benefit of the paper.
Mr. E. A. Wurl said that he did
not believe that Plattsmouth
should be behind other cities of
the slate, but he thought the mat
ter of the improving of the
schools was one that should be
thoroughly agitated by the. citi
zens among themselves in order
Ihat the mailer could be discuss
ed and understood with clearness,
and in time the buildings needed
and desired could be secured.
The mayor of the city, John P.
Saltier, arose and pointed out
how the eity had in the past few
years taken steps to pay off the
indebtedness of the city by creat
ing a sinking fund, ami each year
retiring :.000 worth of bonds,
and from an indebtedness of
i!0,0n0 in 189D. the city had
now reduced it to SiCO.OOO. Most
of the cities in the slate that were
putting up public buildings were
heavily bonded, and Nebraska City
hail only a year or so ago voted
JSS0.000 for a tine High school
building, and whenever the voters
of Ihe eity and the taxpayers
could see their way clear he
favored the putting up of a struc
ture that could be a pride to the
Mr. Tidd, ngain securing Ihe
tloor, desired to express his own
let the public know where he stood personal views of the question,
and slated that in years past the
school board had temporized with
building, but when a building was
put up he thought it should be
one far C0.lOt, or better, but at
this time he did not favor the
Judge A. J. Heeson said he had
not given much thought to the
matter, but thought as to the con
dition at the schools, that the
committee had probably looked
Ihe matter over and ought to
know. As far as the bonds were
concerned, he was willingly per
sonally lo vole for then; to aid the
betterment of Ihe schools.
Charles C. Parmele, president
of the 1 Sank of Cass County, ami
one of the largest taxpayers in
Ihe city, slated that he had not
been very familiar with the ques
tion, but from observation of
other towns in the stale, il was
quite evident that IMaltsniouth
was away behind the times, and
lie was willing, as iar as tie was
concerned. to pay whatever
amount of taxes was necessary to
secure good and modern, school
He spoke strongly in favor of do
mestic science and manuel train
ing in the schools as being help
ful lo the young people in the
making of their future.
In reply to a number of in
quiries, Professor llrooks gave a
brief out line of w hat the two mat
ters of manual training and do
mestic science invoked and how
they were taught, but owing to the
length of time was compelled to
make it very brief ami could not
touch on many interesting phases
of the work.
Secretary E. H. Weseott, who is
also one of the members of the
board of education, was called up
on to express his views on the
matter ami gave a very clear and
concise statement of the attitude
taken by the board of education
in regard to the bond quest ion.
He stated the members had the
best of feeling .among themselves,
although they might at time dis
agree as to matters of policy and
Ihat after much discussion I hey
had agreed o submit Ihe matter
of the bonds lo the voters in order
that they might understand clear
ly the position of the citizens and
their desires. For years the
agitation and need for improve
ment of the schools had been go
ing on and euch year it had been
passed up until the great crying
need of the mailer had caused Ihe
board to take the step to try and
place the mailer where there
could be some action taken. On
Ihe question of manual training
and domestic! science being in
stalled in Ihe schools, Mr. We.
colt pointed out Ihe fact of the
different towns of the stale thai
had installed these m their
schools and produced " ligures
showing that all of Ihe towns of
Ihe size of Platlsinouth and larger
had these in the schools lor years,
and a great number of the small
er cities hail I hem and were every
dav adding to the cnicieney of
their school system, while thi
city had been compelled to stand
still and deny the children the
advantages fhev should have tm-
der a modern school system. He
also had a list of (he different
towns of the stale showing Ihe
bonded indebtedness, and by coin.

After several more remarks on
the subject of the school bonds
on the motion of Mayor John I.
Saltier, the report of the com
mittee was placed on lib and the
club refused to make any recom

bonds, but will leave it to the in
