ENERGIZE YOUR SYSTEM
The firt;t alarm has just been giv
en by the health authorities. A new
"flu" visit may bo expected very
soon. You must not wait indolently,
until it would be too late. To pre
vent the disease, to increase the re
dstibility of your system, that is
your duty. A dily bowel movement
will increase your resisting powers
?nd will lend you the most substan
tial aid in combatting the undesirable
uest. Triner's Bitter Wine is the
mo.t reliable remedy for this pur
pose. Its ingredients speak for
themselves. Cascara segrada and
other bitter herbs make Triner's Bit
ter Wine the best bowel cleanser.
And tlie main thing which you never
must forget. Triner's Bitter Wine
helps without debilitating. On the
contrary, it invigorates the entire
system. Ask your druggist or deal
er in medicines also for Triner's
Antiputrin. Diluted with warm
water (one part of Antiputrin and
four parts of water) it is the best
gargle, mouth wash and nose douche.

DEATH OF WILL REED
DUNROY IN CHICAGO
One Time Associated in Publishing
Plattsmouth Journal A Well
Known Newspaper Man
from Tuesday's Dally.
The death of William Keed Dun
roy. a former well known Nebraska
writer, occurred at Chicago yester
day morning, resulting from what
has been pronounced a;; alcoholic
poisoning. It is stated that Mr.
Dun roy, who was suffering from a
severe cold had accepted some "moon
shine" whiskey from a friend to take
for his cold and this is supposed to
have caused his death.
Mr. Dun roy was some twenty
years ago one of the best known
literary men iu the state of Nebraska
and was for a number of years with
the State Journal at Lincoln anil
also interested in literary work at
the-state university. In 1900 Mr.
Dunroy, in company with Harry It.
Groves, engaged in the newspaper
business in Plattsmouth and was
for several years at the helm of the
IMattsuiouth Journal, which at that
time occupied a frame building at the
corner of Fourth and Main streets,
where the Donat building now stands
and it was here that a very serious
fire swept the newspaper plant.
Shortly after this Messrs Dunroy
and (Jroves retired from the Journal.!
Mr. Dunroy returned to Lincoln andj
later went to Chicago, where he was:
engaged in editorial work on thej
Chronicle as associate Sunday editor,
and on the Record-Herald in a like
capacity. For the past three years
he has been the editor of Variety, a:
dramatic weekly, and at which he I
was quite successful. j
Mr. Dunrojvwas a very brilliant j
writer, both in poetry and prose and!
his work has been recognized 111 an
parts of the country.
