Goeman for receiving a stolen car
valued at $400. The bond demand
ed in the case is sufficient to buy
nine such cars. It was made large
because of the supposition that Goe
man may have received other stolen
cars. Bond was furnished by a
wealthy neighbor of Goeman. The
car was stolen by an ex-convict
whose name is withheld pending fur
ther development. The state case
will be prosecuted by County Attor
ney Radcliffe. The defendant is
represented by W. P. Miles of Sid
ney. The proprietor of the Overland
garage at Sidney was arrested for
failing to properly register cars 1n

fined $100 and costs. Mr. Hyers
found Sidney to be one of the best
towns in the state in regard to en
forcement of the automobile laws.;

school has rented a rarm of Ray
Wiles five miles northeast of town
and . was taking our furniture from
the C. H. Gibson store Monday,
which he told our reporter was a

porter's judgment the furniture was
of a quality that would necessitate
a more skilled hand to care for and'
we are quite sure Claude's good
judgment would prompt him to buy

to get a housekeeper to care for it. .
An important business change on

SAYS HANDS WERE
Rheumatism and Other Troubles
Began to Disappear After
. "There's no mistake about Tanlac
being a real -medicine, for nothing
but -a real medicine could do what
it has for me,'v said Mrs. Hattie
Campbell, of 1808 Grace St., Omaha,
"Beginning with indigestion four
years ago" continued Mrs. Campbell,
"my troubles multiplied till my life
became one of constant suffering.
Everything I would eat soured on
my stomach and almost tortured me
to, death. The gas would press on
my heart at times so I could hard
ly breathe and I Would almost
smother. I suffered from heartburn
and had nervous sick headaches and
was so dizzy that I would almost fall
every time I stooped over. I had
rheumatism in my hands so bad that
my fingers were all bent over, and
at times they would become so numb
as to be almost useless. My appe
tite was poor and I fell off from one
hundred and thirty pounds to ninety-four
and nobody will ever know
how much I suffered.
"I was in an awful fix, and while
I tried everything recommended I
found no relief until my sister and
some of my friends got me to take
Tanlac. While on my second bottle
my appetite returned, I could eat
most anything, I wanted and my
other troubles began to leave me. I
have regained sixteen pounds of my
!ost weight and am now able to eat
anything I want without suffering
from gas or indigestion afterwards.
My hands and fingers have become
upple again and I hardly notice
my rheumatic pain in them. Those
headaches and dizzy spells are gone
nd I have improved so much that
I hardly" feel like the same person."
Tanlac is sold in Plattsmouth by
F. G. Fricke and Company and the
eading druggist in every town.

that he came home a little too soon.
Last Saturday morning as the
Missouri Pacific flight engine was
doing some switching on the side
track one of hte cars and the tender
o the, engine was partially derail
ed. It seems that there was .'a sharp
?urve in the switch and the force
against this was sufficient to tear the
rail loose partly dejailing a car and
tearing out several rails. Things were
quickly gotten back in shape again
and the freight on its way again
with a short "delay.

. The meeting of the commercial
club last night revealed the very
pleasing pet that while not a great
deal of progress has been made on
incorporation of the village, the
committee appointed to map out the

limits are meeting with practically
no opposition. There are no difficult
problems to solve and it would seem
that everybody realizes the great
importance of incorporation and is
willing to concede certain points and
concessions in order that we may de
rive the benefits. A small delay in
getting the petition ready to 6ign
was due to the fact that two or
three parties had not yet decided
whether or n.ot they wanted to be
annexed and the committee is wait
ing for them to decide. No' doubt
but they will decide one way or the
other quickly, when it will then be
only a matter of circulating the
