WE MAKE THIS SPECIAL UNPRECEDENTED OFFER TO QUICKLY INTRODUCE AND OBTAIN
AGENTS IN NEW LOCALITIES. READ EVERY, WORDI
To quickly introduce and obtain agents in as many new localities as
possible for Dr. Home's New Improved Electric Belts and Appliances, we
nave decided to sell for a period of 60 days only our Ho. 4 Dr. Home's New
Improved Itejrular 820.00 Electric Belt for only 8J.6fi, a price that will make
it possible for every person reading this advertisement to get one of our
best Belts at a nominal price. Never in the history of our business have
we offered to sell this Belt at such a price, but we realize that times are
hard and we must cope with them. Aside from this we want an agentin
your locality, and we believe that if you buy a belt you will be so well
pleased with it that you will either act as our agent or help us to get one.
REMEMBER, the Belt we are offering you for only $6.firj is our No. 4
Dr. Home's New Improved Regular $20.00 Combination Belt for men or
women. It is adjustable and can be worn by the whole family. Suspen
sory Free with every Belt, It is the best belt we manufacture; in fact, the
BEST ON EAKT1I, and we make no exception to this statement It will
last for years with proper care. We have sold hundreds, yes, thousands of
them up to 40.00. No better belts than this have been sold from 960.00
to $100.00. There is not a family but what Bhould have one of these belts,
as it is the best and cheapest doctor, and you do not have to go out of the
house to get it It will save itself in doctor bills ten times over. These
Electric Belts have cured thousands and will cure you if you will only give
it a trial, as the many testimonials which we publish in our catalogue will
We do not ask you to send any money In advance. If you want
one of these Belts we are perfectly willing to send it to your nearest ex
press ottice, C. O. D., subject to examination, so that you can see and ex
amine it free of any cost, just the same as if you came into our office or
go into any store, and if you are perfectly satisfied with it pay the express
agent the price of the belt and express charges and take it; otherwise it
will be returned to us. Can any fairer offer be made you than this ? We
are the only manufacturers of Electric Belts who send belts C. O. D. sub
ject to examination, without asking one cent In advance. If you wish to

We have now offered you an opportunity of your life and if you do not accept it you may be sorry for it, as
we shall never again offer this Belt at such a price. It seems needless to say that we are sustaining a loss on
every Belt we sell at the above price, but it is cheaper to introduce them in new localities in this way than to send
traveling men to do it for us. If you want one of these Belts fill out the blank order below and send it to us at
once. Don't delay. Order to-day if possible, otherwise you may forget it Address plainly,

Berge at Raymond.
That the people are determined this
fall to solve at the polls the money ques
tion is evidenced by the fact that the
farmers all over this county regardless
of party politics, are meeting together
studying this question for themselves.
They feel that the present financial de
rangement has primarily to do with the
present hard times and low prices and
they are determined to look into it for
themselves and in spite of party politics
to solve this great question.
One of these clubs met in the Blodgett
school house, about three miles north of
Raymond on Friday evening, April 24th.
After several snort speeches by farmers
of that vicinity, Mr. G. W. Berge of Lin
coln, who had been advertised to speak,
was cauea upon ana lor over two Hours
addressed the audience upon the money
question. Mr. Berge thoroughly under
stands the science of money and his forci
ble and eloquent manner on the platform
carries conviction to his hearers. When
he had finished, there was no doubt left
in the minds of those present as to the
cause of the present condition of the
country. He was in favor of the free and
unlimited, independent coinage of both,
gold and silver at the present legal ratio
of lo to 1. tie believed such legislation
would give relief to the country. The
objections made by those who oppose
the opening of our mints to silver were
carefully considered and one by one
This club meets every week and is cre
ating a great deal of interest in all ques
tions of the hour. Whenever the light of
investigation is turned on the issues be
fore the American people the cause of the
masses is strengthened. .

was preformed at the residence of the

The guests were composed of a select few

THE FAIB CITY OF OBD-
Irrigation and Populist Government Com
bine to Make her Happy .
Obd, Neb., April 18, 1896.
Special to the Independent: Tour
traveling missionary after a pleasant
and profitable stop at St Paul, boarded
the Ord branch of the TJ. P. R. R. at 5 p
m. for Ord, the course of the R. It. lies
along the right bank ot the North Loup
river, and traverses one of the richest
agricultural valleys in the state. The
first stop is Elba about ten miles up the
river from St. Paul. This is a thrifty
growing little village of about 300 souls,
and situated about mile from the
rer. Its inhabitants are a busy and
industrious people. The next point of
special importance is Scotia on the left
bank of the river in Greely county and
the next point is the North Loup in Val
ley county. This little village is at the
foot of the North Loup irrigation ditch,
which has its head just below Ord and
extending down the valley about sixteen
miles and from its waters there is irriga
ted about 12,000 acres of the valley, and
I was told at North Loup that there was
50 car loads of potatoes shipped from
that station last fall which were grown
on land irrigated from the ditch above
referred to. The result ot this is that the
farmers in the valley are in a compari
tively comfortable condition financially
speaking. We stopped over night at
North Loup and during the night we had
a drenching rain which poured down all
night long and most of the next day
wetting the ground to a great depth.
The people of this vicinity say that tbey
have not had so good a prospect for
many years, for a full crop of small grain
We reached Ord on the night of the
17th and put up at the Hotel Ord which.
by the way, is one of the neatest and
most home-like little hotels in Nebraska.
It is presided over by gentlemanly
clerks and lady-like waiters and is equip
ped with all tne modern conveniences.
The government of this (Valley) county
is in the hands of populists with but one
exception, and her warrants are cash on
demand and all her affairs are in a pros
perous condition, tier merchants and
her business men are doing well, and as
one of ber sturdy yoemanry stated to
me, we are happy but short of cash,
that is, we have plenty to eat of our own
raising, but prices are low and therefore
money is scarce." The people in and
around Ord feel the good results of the
limited irrigation they already have and
they are pushing the enterprise of irriga
tion as rapidly as possible and in the
near future will have all the available
land in this vicinity under irrigation
This is one of the banner populist coun
ties in the state, which is an evidence of
the progressive spirit of her people and
the Nebraska Independent is the lead
ing paper, which is a fnrther and more
perfect evidence of their good judgment.

A New Sort of Good Standing.
Hastings, Neb., April 27, 1896.
I clip the following from the Hastings
Republican: "There never has beenatime
when the republicans of Adams
county had so good . a stand
ing over the state as at the
the present time and this is largely be
cause the last delegation to the state
convention was there in the interest of
the party and not for trading purposes.''
Your correspondent can't quite under
stand the above item from the Hastings
Daily Republican except upon the hy
pothesis that the loss of the sheriff, dis
trict clerk, county clerk, coroner, and the
defeat of the republican candidate for
district judge in this county by a majori
ty of 245 last fall, with the additional
defeat of the republican candidate for
mayor at the spring election by a ma
jority of 273 produced it. The above
items are a recommendation for Adams
county republicans. Tbey certainly have
reason to be proud.
It would seem to me tnat tne party
ought to honor them with two or three
places on the state ticket on account of
their generalship and bravery on the po
litical battlefield. We suppose it was
the cutting defeat last fall in the county
and their Waterloo this spring in the city
which prompted Chairman Mctrary to
announce in his speech at the republican
convention at Omaha that Adams coun
ty was the birth place of the populist
party. He ougt to have added that the
baby had grown to the proportions of
full manhood and that he was numerous
and untiring in his efforts forreform, etc.

The man who happens into "THE NEBRASKA" this
Spring wilt 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 clothes marked
$4.25 which ten years ago would have cost him at lea9t a
ten dollar bill He will find a fine black worsted suit
selling for seven dollars the same quality as he used 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 can 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.
