Elmwood Deader-Echo. NAME NEW HIGH- WAY COMMISSIONER County Board Selects J. B. McKee, Now Engineer and Boad Ex pert in Saunders Co. From Friday's Dally. Among the important matters that were handled by the commissioners yesterday afternoon was that of se lecting the new county highway com missioner, and for this position the board named J. B. McKee, who is at present connected with the road work in Saunders county, selecting this gentleman from a number of applicants for the position and after due deliberation of his qualifications and efficiency in the job. Mr. McKee comes very highly recommended by the state depart ment of public works, with which he has had more or less experience in the past year. He is one of the best lualified civil engineers in this por tion of the state, which makes his acceptance of the position as high way commissioner especially pleas ing to the commissioners, bringing, is he does a fine technical knowledge f the value of road work that will enable him to give the people of Cass county a thorough business ad ministration of the. office. The county commissioners have taken their time in making the ap pointment and examining thorough ly the qualifications of the varipus applicants and have decided that the special training in the line of road construction which Mr. McKee has received will make him an especially valuable man for the county at this :ime when several road extension propositions are up for action. Mr. McKee is the second highway commissioner of the county, suc ceeding C. F. Vallery, who is retir ing from the office after having suc cessfully carried through the first year of the extension of the good road movement in the county, and the work of Mr. Vallery and his as sistants has been very effective in getting the movement well under way. Under the administration of Mr. McKee it is hoped to carry it to even greater lengths in the coming year. The commissioners also plan a re-adjustment of the road patrolmen of the- county with a view to greater efficiency in the work of caring for the roads. IT'S JUST GRAND, SAYS IOWA WOMAN Mrs. Tisher Says Tanlac Ended Her Troubles and Built Her Up . Wonderfully. 1 . i "Since Tanlac has restored my health and built me up I just can't say enough for it," said Mrs. C. B. Tisher, of 2707 Avenue A. Council . Bluffs, Iowa. "For more than a year before tak ing Tanlac my stomach was so dis ordered I couldn't eat a thing but what it would hurt me. I was sub ject to blinding spells and dizziness and had almost unbearable pains in the small of my back. I was ner vous and restless and a good night's sleep seemed out of the question. My appetite left me and I got so weak and run-down my housework was just a drag. "But the first bottle of Tanlac I took made a wonderful improvement in my condition. I have now finish ed my third bottle and am sound and well, without an ache or a pain of any kind. I have a fine appetite and never have a touch of indiges tion. That tired feeling has left me and it's no trouble for me to do my housework. In fact I feel good all the time. Tanlac is certainly one. grand medicine." ' Tanlac is sold in Plattsmouth by F. G.

GEHRTS, MURDOCK NEBRASKA GREAT SEAL OF THE STATE OF NEBRASKA Proposal to Design New Seal Becalls Part Cass County Man Had in Designing Present One. The introduction in the state leg islature of a bill to design a state flag and to provide for a commission to design a new state seal recalls the important part that Captain Isaac Wiles of this county, an dwho pass ed away Just a few days ago. had in securing the present seal of the state of Nebraska. It was at the first state legislature in June. 1867. that Mr. Wiles in troduced in the legislature an act to provide for a great seal of the then infant state and on June 15, 1867, the bill was passed, carrying with it an appropriation of $25 to have the seal designed and made. The act as introduced by-Mr. Wiles was as follows: "The eastern arc of the circle to be represented by a steamboat as cending the Missouri river; the me chanic arts to be represented by a smith with hammer and anvil; in the foreground agriculture to be repre- i sented by a settler's cabin, sheaves J of wheat and stalks of growing corn; j in the background a train of cars; heading toward the Rocky mountains and on the extreme west the Rocky mountains to be plainly in view; around the top of this circle to be in capital letters the motto, 'Equal ity before the law,' and the circle to be surrounded with the words, 'Great Seal of the State of Nebraska,! March 1. 1S67.' " The seal has from that time to the present served as the official seal of the 6tale and while it might not ap peal to the higher artistic sense of some it is truly a fitting representa tion of the arts and pursuits of the people of the great state and the mctto one that all free men should j see is kept inviolate at all times. ! Living through the early days of the state and representing as it does a distinct emblem of the west during pioneer days it should remain as it is, the official seal of the state. I With nations and states the anci-' ent seals are kept inviolate and their age represents the greatness of the nation or state that they represent, and the proposition to change the present seal is one of folly, aLthough ; the proposition of the adoption of a state standard is a very good and t logical suggestion. j The state seal is a lasting monu-' ment to the great services of Captain Iraac Wiles in the pioneer days of statehood and should be left undis-. uirbed by the efforts of the legisla tors who could well devote their , time to less laws and more effective, ones.
