was disordered and my heart would
palpitate fearfully and I would get
so short of breath that I felt like I

dreadfully from headaches, and if I
stooped over I became so dizz that
I almost fell down. "My nerves seem

In passirg it is a pleasure to re

history of Xebraska has recorded no
more fearless or able chief executive
than George Lawson Sheldon and his
term from 1906 to 1909 marked the
most progressive period in the history
of tiie state and his term marks the
breaking of the power of the vast
railroad interests that o:ioe dictated
to the state executive and-legislators
on what they should or should not do.
Among the measures that were enact
