to sit down and wait for these at

little while after I commenced to use
Doan's Kidney Pills that I began to
improve. I got several boxes from

"The rates which had beeu in ex-i

general to a large amount, but the'
expenses or waged and materials;
had increased so greatly that the
new rates thus fixed were not stiff i-;
cient to pay the railroads a reason
able compensation and enable them
to operate. It was expected that !
high rates still would be necessary
and would be granted and this sec-!
tion 20S was enacted for the purpose
of fixing the time when the proper
authorities might make those rates. I
It was not. enacted to exercise war;
powers, nor was it enacted for the;
purpose of raising rates. It was en-:
acted for the purpose of fixing the;
time when the war powers should
cease to be an expedient, when the
rates fixed by the director general
should cease and that time was fixed :
by saying that they should cease,

From Friday's Daily.
With the wing3 of the morning,
Mrs. Charles K. McBride passed away
at her home in this city after a long
and protracted illness, the death mes

last two months suffered a relapse
from which 8he failed to rally and
gradually grew worse until death
came to her relief. During the weeks
of her suffering she has been watch

of the family and it was in the quiet
of gentle sleep that she passed away.

years of age came to Plattsmouth

warm friends by her kindly disposi

whom she knew as friends. At the
age of sixteen years she joined her
life with Christ and became a mem
ber of the Christian church of which
she continued a devout member until
her death. On June 13, 1898 she
was united in marriage at Lincoln,
Neb., to Charles E. McBride, and the
years of wedded life had been very
pleasant until the ties were so rudly
severed by death. To this union
there were born five children, who
with the husband remain to mourn
the death of the wife and mother,
Mrs. E. G. Ofe. Edward McBride,
Glen and Hazel McBride residing in
Plattsmouth and Mrs. Dorothy Hamp

T. W. Peterson has started up his
feed mill, which has been idle for
some time, and is busily engaged
grinding chop feed and corn meal.
The Beacon man Inspected the mill
in operation last Saturday and found
everything working nicely and a good
quantity of stuff being turned out.
This mill formerly did a fairly good
business, but conditions changed and
larger mills were permitted to crowd
out smaller enterprises, so it was
closed, down. Now with grain going
at ridiculously low figures and flour
and corn meal remaining unreason
ably high Mr. Peterson concluded to
try it tiut again and see if he cannot
give his local friends a good quality
of corn meal at a price relatively
near the price of corn. Up to this
writing we have not tested any of
his product, but from the looks of
things we expect to sample it and
pronounce it good.
