Cause of Appendicitis
When the bowels are constipated,
the lower bowels or large intestines
become packed with refuse matter
that is made up largely of germs.
Tljese germs enter the vermiform
appendix and set up .jnflamation,
which is commonly known as appen
dicitis. Take Cliamberlain's Tablets
when needed and keep your bowels
reguliw and you have little to fear
from appendicitis. Weyrich &. Had

Or. August 2, Mr. Donovans let

and rode in it to Pilattsmouth. The

ed by the old friends and neighbors
who gathered to pay their last to
kens of respect to his memory.
The Rev. John Calvert, pastor of

departed brother as well as giving
words of comfort and solace to the
bereaved members of the family.
During the services a quartet sang
two of the songs requested by the
family, "There's a Land that's Fair
er than Day," and "A Charge to
Keep I Have." while Mrs. Ed Ro

CONCORD HILL FARM
One of. the most productive farms
in the county, nearly the entire tract
laying nearly level, with just enuf
slope to insure the proper drainage,
is the farm of August Keil near Cul
lom or what was formerly called
Concord station. The farm was once
owned by the Beavers and over a half
a century ago there was a stone
scliool house built on the place which
served as a place of instruction for
some thirty to thirty-five years, since
which time it has been used for a
barn for the farm.
Many people from many places
come every year and take pictures
of the building for their collection
of interesting places. This place had
indeed an interesting past, many of
the grownups who are along in years
received their first instruction in
this stone building..
The building , which was erected
in the later sixties of the last cen
tury was only reshingled a few years
since and is in. a fair state of pre
servation. The farm originally con
tained 1S7 acres and a small portion
was sold to J. P. Falter and some
forty acres went to Louis Heil, this
leaving with the farm at the pres
ent time 143 acres.
ALL GOOD LOSERS
From Friday's Dally.
Last night-as the rivalry for the
American Legion's trophy cup near
ed its end. there was no evidence of
any airs of superiority among the
different companies and everyone
was anxiously awaiting the verdict
of Lieut. Col. McDaniel, hopeful, yet
certain that if they were losers, the
men in their organization could take
it good naturedly and congratulate
the winners. Among the several
leading companies was this spirit
especially noticeable, and it is cer
tain that had Aere been a half dozen
cups to award they could have been

a very commendable one and makes

This morning, Deputy U. S. Mar
shal O'Connor departed for Omaha,
taking with him Joe Roucka, a resi

ing at the Burlington shops, came
along and was greeted by the word,
"Scab," it is claimed, and the party
who was called the name, started out
after Mr. Roucka who secured a
