Tlie democratic state invention to

scenes were quite stormy, thcte being
two sets of delegates from Douglas,
Cheyenne, Cuming and Hitchcock coun

Judge Batty was made temporary chair
man. After the committee on creden
tials had been appointed the contesting
delegations took their case before it
and the matter occupied the attention
of the committee nearly all night, pend
ing which the convention after hearing
several speeches adjourned until morn
ing. Upon reassembling the report of
the committee on credentials was favor
able to the Boyd delegates and they
were seated. The delegates from the
various congressional districts selected
the following district delegates to the
Chicago convention: Robert Clegg,

was presented. An amendment was
made eliminating the instructions of

snowstorm, which has raged without

killed hundreds of young calves and
man- weak cows and sheep. Cattle

spring of 18SG and the end is not yet,
for it was still snowing last night Col.

he left Buffalo, expected to reach Doug

to this county that the rival colonies ol

"I have been afflicted with bilious
ness and constipation for fifteen years,
and first one and then another prep
aration was suggested to me and.
tried, but to no purpose. A friendi
recommended August Flower and
words cannot describe the admira
tion in which I hold it. It has given
me a new lease of life, which before
was a burden. Its good qualities-.-and
wonderful merits should be mader
known to everyone suffering with
dyspepsia and biliousness." jESSEi
