TURNS FROM HOSPITAL
Last evening Mrs. Allen J. Beeson
returned home from the Immanuel
hospital in Omaha, where for the past
five weeks she has been taking treat
ment, as well as recovering from an
operation which was necessitated by
a gathering in her side. Mrs. Beeson
has stood the sickness in fine shape
and returns home feeling very much
improved in health and will, in the
rcstfulness of home, regain her
strength. Judge Beeson accompanied
his wife home from the hospital, and
it is needless to say that the occasion
was a most pleasant one for the en
tire family to have the wife and
mother back home again. The host
of friends of Mrs. Beeson will be de
lighted to learn that she has improved
so nicely and will soon be able to be
around with them.

This morning before Justice M.
Archer complaint was filed against
William P. Cook, charging him with
intent to wound AHo McClaren in this
city on Monday, February 21st, while
engaged in a dispute over possession
of the residence property of Mr.
Cook. To this charge the defendant,
Mr. Cook, entered a plea of guilty,
and va lined ?25 and costs, amount
ing to .30, and was allowed to go on
his way after settlement of the fine.
The man McClaren is getting along
very nicely from the fieh wound in
the small of his back which was caus
ed by the discharge of a shMgun in
the hands of Mr. Cook, and is being
cared for in the hospital ward at the
This case was one that was quite
complicated and has been ended in a
nannor that shouM be satisfactory to
all concerned. Both pai ties were
partly at fault in the ease in the
methods taken in settling the differ
ences between themselves over the
rent of the house belonging to Mr.
Cr-ok, which was several months in
:. rears and for which McClaren had
rot made any effort to settle and Mr.
Cook, feeling that he could not afford
the hiring of an attorney, hr-d laken
the means of ejecting hi tenants by
force, and McClaren later committed
an error- of judgment by bieaking in
the dor.r of Mr. Cook's home, as a re
mit of which, in tho rni-up between
the Uvi men. he had the misfortune to
receive a gunshot wound in the back.
J he case has been attiacf.ng a gres
deal of attention and the friends of
Mr. Cook are well pleased with the
outcome of the matter.

SO RAO TQ-DAY
ine situation m the I'latte river
north of this city appears to be very
satisfactory in the way of the break
ing up of the ice and it seems as
though the ice will go out without do
Sng any particular damage unless
rush of flood water from the streams
emptying into the Platte cau.se that
stream to become overtaxed and finest
the lowlands. The cold weather has
had a tendency to check the rising
stream somewhat, allowing the water
and ice to move off gradually and not
cause the river to overflow, as wouh
have been the case had the warm
weather of last week continued for a
few more days. Farther west the
Platte is causing a great deal of ap
prehension and worry for fear of the
destruction of property, owing to a
flood and ice gorge. The Elkhorn has
been making a great deal of trouble
along its course by overtaxing the
capacity of the stream, and at its
mouth has flooded a considerable area
of land and farmers residing along
the stream have suffered quite a loss

BIG APPLE TREE
LOSS SINGE 1910
Unfavorable Weather and Neglect
Are the Causes, Saj-s
PROPER METHODS ARE URGED
Nebraska now has only 1,430,044
fruit bearing apple trees, while there
were 2,800,000 in 1910, according to a
bulletin of the state board of agri
culture. "The loss of trees in the last five
years was caused by dry weather,"
the bulletin says.
Weather conditions for this period
were bad for the proper application of
j-prays, it says, and have caused many
growers to neglect their trees.
2,300,000 Buhels Last Year.
'The farmer who will set out a
home orchard and give it the same
relative amount of care that he gives
to his corn, has never had a better
chance to grow a paying: orchard than
The Nebraska apple crop last year
is estimated by the board at 2,500,000
The bulletin names the vicinity of
Florence, in Douglas county, and
Brownville, Nemaha county, as the
best strawberry growing centers in
That Nebraska must pay more at
tention to methods of growing-,
preparation for market and marketing
if this state- is to become successful
in horticulture, is stated in the bul
letin. Must Advertise. It Says.
"We have the soil, climate and
peonle," the report says, "to make
iho growing of horticultural crops in
the .-tale one of the most important.
We must apply proper methods and
advertise to the consumer of Ne
braska." The crop of pears was light, accord
ing to the bulletin, though some in-
dividual trees were heavily loaded.
The commercial pear crop was not so
rood as that of l'Ji t.
The plum crop was lip.ht, but the
plums were of c;-ol quality. Peaches
commercially were, a complete failure.
Peach prowin?, the bulletin says, ex
cept in the extreme southern portion
of the state, is. a pamble.

The bulletin says further:

FORMER BURLINGTON EM
PLOYEE OiES IN OREGON
A letter received here from Port
land, Orepon, conveys the informa
tion of the death in that city of Abe
Armstronp an old-time Plattsmouth
man, and a veteran trainman of the
IJurlinpton, who passed away a few
days apo after quite a lonp illness
due to cancer of the stomach. Mr.
Armstronp made his home here for
several years in the eighties, but in
the strike of 18S8 he was among those
to quit the service. Fatcr he moved
to the Pacific coast and has since maJc
his home at Portland. He leaves five
children to mourn his death Misses
Ella and (Jrace, Robert, Irvin and
Frank Armstronp all of whom reside
in Portland. Mr. Armstrong, who
was well known among the com
munity during his residence here, will
be remembered by the older residents,
who will regret to learn of his death.
WHAT CHILDREN NEED NOW.
In spite of the best care mothers can
give them this weather brings sickness
to many children. Mrs. T. Neureuer,
Eau Claire, Wis., writes: "Foley's
Ioney and Tar cured my boy of a
severe attack of croup after other
remedies had failed. It is a wonder
ful remedy for coughs, colds, croup
and whooping cough." It stops la
grippe coughs. Sold everywhere.

MISS VIOLET DODGE RE
TURNS FROM GHIGAGO
Miss Violet Dodge, who has been at
Chicago spending a short time in the
wholesale millinery houses, arrived
home this morning ready for the sea
son's work in the millinery line which
she has been making a close study of
for the past few years. Miss Dodge
will be located at Omaha this spring
for the trimming season and will at

MEET WITH MRS.
OR. J. B.
Yesterday morning a large number
of members of the Ladies' Auxiliary
of the Presbyterian church gathered
at the home of Mrs. Dr. J. li. Martin,
on North Sixth street, and held an
all-dav session for the purpose of
working on their rag rugs, which the
ladies are eneaeed in making. The
greater part of the day was devotee
to working on the rugs and the ladies
were well pleased at the amount of
work that was accomplished. A most
excellent dinner, which had been pro
vided by a number of the ladies, was
prepared and was served at the noon
hour and was thoroughly appreciated
by the ladies, as they had acquired
some very pood appetites in their
work of the morning hours. Another
pleasing feature of the day was the
selections rendered by the Aeolian
Vocalian, which the ladies greatly en
joyed. At the close of the beautifu
winter's day the ladies departed for
their homes, feeling that they ha
spent a very profitable day and very
much indebted to Mrs. Martin for the
use of her home. The ladies will hole
another all-day session, but have not
decided on the date and place for hold
ing this meeting.
A Great Difference.
Two things may, to all outside ap
pearances, be the same, although there
is a great difference between them
Take two medicines both of them are
intended to relieve constipation and
both of them do it. The action of one
of them is slow, painful and harmful
while the other acts promptly, causing
no pain or discomfort. One of them
weakens the body, the other strength
ens it. This is the difference between
many other preparations and Triner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine. This
preparation not only cleans out the
body in a natural and thorough way,
strengthening it at the same time, but
it also relieves many stomach and

F WAR'S FUTURE
Foreign Minister Speaks Before the
Duma Czar Makes Brief
GERMANY'S ALLIES VASSALS
Tetrograd, Feb. 22. (Via London,
Feb. 23. Addressing the duma to
day, Foreign Minister Sazonoff re
viewed the war situation in a most
optimistic way, although he declared
it was more difficult now than ever
before to foresee the end of the world
"The imperial government remains
unshaken in its "determination to con
tinue the struggle to conquer the en
emy," he said. "This war is the great
est crime of high treason against hu
manity. Those who provoked it bear
a heavy responsibility and today stand
"We know who it was that let loose
the misfortunes without number with
which Europe is oppressed. Even Ger
man public opinion is beginning to re
alize that the German people have
been the dupe of those who thought
the hour had come to realize the
dreams of plunder and rapine they had
cherished so long.
"When dealing with an enemy like
Germany we must take thought in
good time how best to prevent the re
petition of the events which occurred
so rapidly eighteen months ago. The
instinct of self-preservation demands
putting an end to the ruthless egotism
and passion for plunder which' are
the distinctive characteristics of Prus
sianism, and they must be crushed
once for all. Otherwise the sacrifices
of the allies would be vain.
Union Is Complete.
"The allies have brought about
complete union without the sacrifice
by any one of them of a particle of in
dependence or personality. With the
enemy it is different. Germany's al
lies have become vassals. It is hard
to speak any longer of Austria-Hun
gary, Turkey and Bulgaria as inde
pendent states. The clutching grasp
I of Germany has seized the power in
their armies and all branches of ad
ministration. "The signature by the five allied
powers to the treaty to conclude peace
in common proves the falsity of absurd
rumors of a separate peace."
The speech of Emperor Nicholas be
fore the duma was devoted principally
to the victory of the Russians at Er
zerum. "I rejoice that I am able to join
RUSSIA 1ST C
E. Wescotfs Sons
you in thanksgiving for the brilliant
victory of our army of the Caucasus,"
the emperor said. "I am happy to be
among the representatives of my
faithful people. I pray for God's
belssing on your labors in this time
of trial, and am convinced you will
use all your experience and knowledge
and be guided by love of your country
in the work for which you are re

wish you fruitful labor and complete
