RECEIVES FINE OF $100
FOR SALE OF INTOXICANTS
From Wed n-.-l:i y's laily.
This afternoon Charles Jelinek was
arraigned in the court of Judge Al
len J. Leeson, on a charge preferred
by County Attorney A. G. Cole, in
which he was charged with having
sold intoxicating liquor to one Oscar
Francis, and who became lit up on
the liquor, and after being arrested
by Chief of Police Barclay stated
where he had procured the beverage.
The matter was laid before the coun
ty attorney with the result that the
complaint was filed. A fine of $100
and costs was given by Judge Beeson,
which was paid by the defendant. It
would seem from the story that the
man. Francis, had made urgent ap
peals for something to drink, and had
been sold a small bottle of whiskey,
and later when arrested coughed up
where he had procured it. This is the
first case of this nature to be filed in
the county since the first of May.

HER DEATH NEAR
So Everyone Thought, But Is Now
Vell And Stronger Than Ever.
Newton, Mo. "I can certainly
speak a good word for Cardui, the
woman's tonic," says Mrs. Jay
Rhoades, of this town. "I suffered for
12 years with my right side, and the
last three years, I would have a bad
spell with it about every three months.
I would get so 'bad off, every on
would think I could not live.
The first of July, I began taking
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I
haven't had a bad spell since soon
after I began taking it.
Before taking Cardui, I was so ir
regular, and, at times, I could hardly
stand on my feet. Now, I can clean
house, and do any kind of work with
out its hurting me in the least.
Cardui will surely do for other
women, what it did for me. I am tell
ing all my neighbors about it."
Cardui is a mild and effective tonic
for women, that has been found, by
actual use, during more than 50 years,
to relieve the ailments to which all
women are peculiarly liable.
Card-u-i has helped thousands.

The John Deere Dain Mower
is the mower with the "compensating" or bal

transmissions ever devised ffor a mower. No
power is lost in transmission from axel to knife.
That is why the John Deere Dain cuts all the

J. A. Murray of the Nebraska
Home' for Dependent Children, was in
the city today to meet with the
county commissioners in regard to
several children of a family residing
near Nehawka, and which had been
brought to the attention of the Home.
The father of this family died a short
time ago of quick consumption, leav
ing several children of tender, ages
and a wife who is afflicted with blind
ness. It has not been fully deter
mined what will be done in regard
to ,the care of the children.
Mr. Murray also states that they
have a fine 4-months-old baby boy
at the Home that is without a home,
and can be adopted by some good
family. The little one is a bright,
healthy little fellow and would make
a great joy in a home.
SAD MESSAGE RECEIVED

J. W. Jennings of Springeld, Mass.,

bridge over the Platte river north of
this city, has given a concession to
the patrons of the bridge in a 50 per

patrons the best possible treatment
and the reduction in price on tolls
will be something that will be ap
preciated by every auto owner who
