AN OLD LADY FINDS THE
TRUE SOURCE OF VITAL
ITY. A Reporter's Interesting Interview
with a Lady of Seventy-two
Years, who Tells a Mar
; velous Story.
From the Union, Port Jervls, N. Y.
But a short time ago, in a distant part
of the country, we heard of a cure by the
UBe of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, which
seemed almost marvelous, and more re
cently another substantial evidence of
their value reached our ears. Being of
an inquiring turn of mind, and wishing to
know just how much there was in the
story, a reporter was sent to interview
the person said to be thus benefitted. If
the narrative as it had reached our ears
was true, it was only simple justice to
let it be known if it proved untrue, it
would be well to know it
The person alluded to above as having
been thus greatly benefitted by the use
of Pink Pills is Mrs. Jane Hotalen, of
Hainesville, N. J., a pleasant hamlet in
Sussex county, about fifteen miles from
this office. The reporter had no diffi
culty in finding Mrs. Hotalen. It was
nearly noon when we reached her pleas
ant home, a double house, one part of
which is occupied by her son. She is a
pleasant-faced old lady, looking to be
about sixty-five, but is in reality seventy
two years of age. After a few prelimi
nary remarks in explanation of the call,
she was asked if she had any objection
to giving us the details of the case and
how she came to try this now famous
"Not at all," said she. If my ex
perience can be of any good to others, I
am sure they are welcome to it it can
do me no harm."
"When were you taken sick and what
was the nature of the malady?" was
"It was about two years ago. The
trouble was rheumatic in character
sciatica, they called it and it was very
painful indeed. The difficulty began in
my hip and extended the whole length of
the limb, crippling me completely. I suf
fered intensely from it, and the ordinary
treatment gave me not the slightest al
leviation. I was under treatment about
a month as stated, but grew worse in
stead of better, and was fast becoming
"What brought Fink Pills to your
"My son called my attention to an ar
ticle in a paper, in which it was stated
that a Mr. Struble, of Branchville, a vil
lage in this county had been greatly
benefitted by their use, and suggested
that it would be a good plan to try

them. But I was skeptical in regard to
their value in fact, I had no confidence
in their efficiency and rather laughed at
the suggestion. But the trouble in
creased and I was badly crippled. A few
days later my son was about to visit a
neighboring town and suggested again
that it might be well to try this niuch-talked-of
remedy, and 1 then consented.
Ue bought me a box of them and I be
gan taking them at once. At the end of
a week I noted a marked improvement,
and by the time I had taken the first
box I was able to walk without a cane.
I continued their use, taking several
boxes, and am, as you see, in a very
comfortable state of health."

life, seventy-two, it would not be surpris
ing if I should have. If it comes, I should
at once begin the use of , the pills. I sup
pose I inherit a tendency to troubles of
this kind my mother died from them."
"Did you ever note any ill effects from
the use of Pink Pills?"
"None whatever. They never disturbed
my stomach in any way or caused me
any annoyance. Neither did I find it
necessary to increase the dose, as the di
rections say may be desirable. I am
able, as you see, to attend to my own
The reporter thanked Mrs. Hotalen for
her courtesy and bade her good day. It
is not often that one can witness sut-li a
complete recovery from such a pertina
cious trouble at such an advanced age,
andjsuch instancescannot fail to produce
a profound impression. Readers of the
Union may rely on the absolute accuracy
of all the statements here given nothing
has been exaggerated, nothing withheld.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a
condensed form, all the elements neces
sary to give new life and richness to the
blood and restoreshattered nerves. They
are an unfailing specific for such diseases
as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis,
St Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia,
rheumatism, nervous headache, the after
effect of la grippe, palpitation of the
heart, pale and sallow complexions, all
forms of weakness either in male or fe
male, and all diseases resulting from
vitiated humors in the blood. Pink
Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be

THE POPULISTS OF MAINE.
THE! CARRY SENATOR HALL'S
Both old Parties Fused and the Fops
We bring the glorious news to our
readers that Robert Gerry, the populist
nominee, was elected mayor of the city
of Ellsworth in the special election of
last Monday. The vote stood 545 for
Gerry, and 539 for Henry E. Davis, the
fusion candidate of the two oTd parties.
This astounding result was accomplished
in the face of obstacles that a month ago
were considered insurmountable. The
republicans and democrats united to de
feat us, and both the local papers
espoused their cause. The Maine Popu
list has a large list in that city and was
the only paper to aid our boys in the
fight. We knew that we were making
heavy gains all over the state.but we had
no conception that they were of such
magnitude as this. When it is remem
bered that Ellsworth is tho home, of
Eugene Hale, one of the foremost sena
tors in the United States, the immense
importance of this victory will best be
appreciated. The old party papers and
leaders are completly paralized over the
result. Our esteemed neighbor, the Lew
iston Journal, has ridiculed the possi
bility of our winning and now tries to
get out of its own humiliating position
by calling it a "joke." Yes, it is a joke,
but it is a grim and ghastly one for the
two old parties in Maine. It is a "joke"
that will be repeated with alarming fre
quency in the future. Again all hail the
noble reformers of Ellsworth! Maine
PBAOTIOAL LEGISLATIVE WORK-
Allen Knows how to put Through Bills
for the Benefit of Nebraska
Washington, D. C, April 10. The
Allen bill to authorize the holding of a
trans-Mississippi and international ex
position in Omaha in 1898 was called up
this afternoon during the pendency of
the Indian appropriation bill and passed.
Senator Allen, assisted by Senator
Thurston, had done excellent work on
the floor of the senate to ward off objec
tions, and consequently the measure
slipped through as if greased. The bill
as it passes makes no appropriation
whatever which shall be immediately
available. It limits the responsibility of
the government lor buildings, transpor
tation and return of government exhib
its, etc., to $150,000 and to $200,000
for the total expenses of governmental
participation. It also limits the com
pensation to the commission to a reason
able sum to be paid by the secretary of
the treasury. The amendments made on
the floor of the senate today were on
motion of Senator Allison, who stated
that they were made to bring the bill in
line with that authorizing the Atlanta
exposition. It was felt to be impossible
to secure the passage of the measure if it
carried an appropriation.
Representative Mercer's bill, which
was today reported from the sub-committee
of the ways and means to the full
committee, provided a liberal appro
priation for the carrying out of the pur
poses of the act. This fact is likely to
defeat its consideration and passage on
the floor of the house. Now that the
Allen bill is passed by the senate it is
probable that Mr. Mereer will move to
substitute it for his own bill, because by
doing so he would secure congressional
sanction for the exposition and pave the
way for a subsequent appropriation.
Senator Allen today introduced a bill
anthorizing the secretary of the interior
to purchase 160 acres of land near Mad
son for au Indian training school and
industrial farm. He also introduced a
bill to pension the Rev. Phillip McKimof
In the Lead of Reform.
Stromsbukg, Neb., March 31,1896.
Special to the Independent. Your
road agent reached this the metropolis
of Polk county at 12:30 p.m.over the K.
C. & O.R.R. leaving the depot at York at
11:20 a.m. This road runs through a very
well improved section of York and Polk
counties, and it was my pleasure to see
ou the trip a large number of small fields
of growing wheat which looks splendid
for the time of year, and also saw quite
a large number of farmers out in their
fields sowing oats and preparing to sow,
and the ground appeared to be in fine
condition so far as moisture is concerned.
Stromsburg is situated in the south
central portion of the county and her
merchants and all classes of business
men enjoy a good share of the patronage
of the county trade and she has a large
per cent of populists conducting her bus
iness affairs. There is in the center of
the city a beautiful grove of forest and
evergreen trees of which her citizens are
justly proud. They are proud of another
fact that is just as prominent as her
park, and that is of the large number of
well informed citizeus, who believe in the
faith of the populist doctrines and they
are confident that they will have a num
ber of accessions to their ranks in the
coming electious, which will place old
Polk in the front rank of the reform
movement which is now agitating the
American mind. When you find an
adherent of the peoples independent
party doctrines you find a reader.a think
er and a good and patriotic citizen, and
Stromsburg and old Polk county are full
of them, "long may she wave."
Wide Awake Pop.
Odell, Neb., April 11, 1896.
Editor Independent: Enclosed please
find a P. 0. order for $4.00 and names of
subscribers for your paper.
We like the Independent very well in
this section and wish you success. Keep
on pouring the grape and canister into
the ranks of the enemy. The populists
are waking up in Gage county, and are
determined to make it hot for the old
parties from now on. We had one of the
largest political meetings in years on
Wednesday the 8th iust when Gen. Coxey
spoke at Beatrice. It is evident that he
has been badly misrepresented by the
Free coinage, a free people, a free
ballot, free thought, free speech, and free
homes (free from mortgages) constitute
a free list that would be of some real
benefit to the country.
The Almighty endowed every man with
reason. A great many of them don't
show it, but He did nevertheless. He in
tended every man to use that reason, to
think for himself. Think, act, vote as
you please. Do not let anyone else dic
tate to you.
The republican press howled very
loudly that the panic of 1893 was caused
by the advent of a democratic adminis
tration. Yet the administration, at the
time the panic began, had not done a
blessed thing except to change a few
postmasters. If little things of tbat
nature can cause a panic, our finances
must be in a shaky condition indeed.
Bribery, trickery and corruption may
win for a time, but honest methods win
in the end. This is true in business and
is just as true in politics.
This is no time for weak kneed palter
ing and sentimentalism, it is a time for
f rompt. vigorous and intelligent action.
t us be fully determined to fight it out
on this line, if it takes the rest of the
century. We are right and we will suc
ceed. When I think of some of the acts of in
expressible meanness of some of these
thieving corporations and their tools, it
makes my blood boil. It is but a crop
ping out of the innerspirit that dominates
most of tbem. They have started in to
gather money and they will do it, who
ever suffers; do it. whatever laws they
have to trample under foot; do it, how
ever many courts and legislatures they
have to bribe; though the people
who produce the wealth go deeper into
poverty and debt every year; do it, even
though popular liberty be lost and the
republic remains but a republic in name.
The men who take the wealth are banded
together against the men who make the
wealth the thieves against the pro
ducers. That is the real situation and
the sooner the people realize it, the
sooner they will be free.
Industrially I divide mankind into two
great classes wealth makers and wealth
takers. A farmer, a mechanic, a laborer,
is a wealth maker. A millionaire, a
usurer, a capitalist, is a wealth taker.
A tramp is a wealth taker on a small
scale. He begs for what he gets; the
other fellow simply takes it without the
Here area few axiomatic truths of
political economy: Labor is the source of
all wealth. The wealth makers feed the
wealth takers. Each man has a right to
all he produces or its exact equivalent.
Today the toilers of the world do not
receive an equivalent for what they pro
duce. It is a false systen of finance and
an inadequate system of wages that
does the business a system that bene
fits the wealth takers and in a moral
sense it is a system of stealing simply
that and nothing less. Follow out the
chain of reasoning and come to any
other conclusion if you can. Christ
called the usurers and money changers
of Jerusalem "a den of thieves." . He was
right. And Ins den of thieves was con
siderably like the den of thieves we have
today except that the fellows he scour
ged from the temple were not nearly so
powerful as their modern prototypes.
Populism means progress and prosperity.
Republicanism means public plunder
and class legislation.
Democracy means incompetence, bro
ken promises and hard times.
. Therefore I am a populist.
I would rather belong to a party of
the future than one of the past.
I would rather belong to a party that
lives on nope than one tbat lives on
I would rather live, even in a world of
dreams and isms, than 111 a graveyard.
Therefore I am a populist.

of the little fellow's questionable popu

success by a republican candidate in
this district this year is a very uncertain
quantity and therefore other g. o. p.
aspirants are not anxious to measure

office at the coming election.
Allen the Man.
Senator W. Y. Allen, in a letter to
Governor Holcomb, published in the
Omaha papers yesterday, declines to be
a candidate for president on the popu
list ticket. The senator expresses a pref
erence to work in the ranks, and, like
Moses, when called ou to lead the chil
dren of Israel out of bondage, expresses
a lack of confidence in his ability. It will
be remembered that the Lord persuaded
Moses to undertake the task, and he
proved to be the greatest leader the
world ever produced. Senator Allen is
the man for the place, and bis diffidence
in regard to the matter is the strongest
argument in his favor. Broken Bow
The man who happens into "THE NEBRASKA." this
Spring will find plenty of food for thought in the prices
he finds attached to anything he may pick up. He will
find a good, substantial, durable, suit of clotbes marked
$4.25 which ten years ago would have cost him at least a
ten dollar bill. He will find a fine black worsted suit
selling for seven dollars the same quality as he nsed to
pay $15.00 to $18.00 for not many years ago He will
find Men's shirts marked 50 cents which a few years back
would have been, considered cheap at $1.50 and he will
find Hats, Shoes, Underwear, Sox and anything that a
Man or Boy an wear for VERY MUCH LESS than he
ever expected to see them marked. What is the cause of
these lower-than-ever prices at "THE NEBRASKA"
this Spring? The main cause is the general condition of
the country and together with that, is the desire on the
part of "THE NEBRASKA" to make prices in keeping -with
the hard times.
Prices this Spring are lower than ever before, our prof
its are lower than ever before, our values are greater than
ever before. It is a good time for you to buy.
Our Spring Catalogue will give you some valuable lessons on
the cheapness of things.
