the blood is poisoned from excess of
waste matter, and the resisting power
of the vital organs is declining. Tri

bowels and aids digestion. In cases
of constipation, headache, nervous
ness, lack of energy, general weak

The residents of Nehawka and vi
cinity seem to be getting greatly in
terested in the question of school con
solidation in that community, as a
sten toward betterintr the conditions
of the schools in that locality, and it
seems that ere long that town and vi
cinity will take up the work of pre
paring the way for bigger and better
schools. It is stated that something
like $35,000 would be available for
the use of the district under the con
solitlation plan, and this would go far
toward helping to make this district
one of the best equipped for schoo
work in the county. We are glad to
learn through press dispatches that
this step is being planned by the citi
zens of Nehawka, for when they put
their shoulder to a proposition they
make it a winner, as Nehawka has as
good and lively a bunch of boosters
as any town of its size in the whole
state of Nebraska.
