Kansas Drt nkt Do Some Shooting.
Last Saturday evoning a party of
hilarious Kansans who had been In
Hod Cloud and tanked up during the
day concluded to have somo fun on tho
road home. When they had crossed
tho river bridge and reached Jeff Beau
champ's place, ono of tho crowd pulled
a gun and opened up on Jeff's flock of
chickens, killing ono of them. Jeff
started out to remonstrato with the
slayer of his poultry, but was immedi
ately fired upon and forced to seek
Mhelter behind a friondly trco. Several
more shots wero fired at him, but Ho
escaped without injury. A litto farther
along on their road homo the Jay
hawkers esplod a man ahead of them
in a -wagon and proceeded to tako a
few shots at him. No ono was injured,
but the chances nro those loughs, if
their names can bo nscortained, will be
warmly welcomed upon thoir nest ap
pearance in Red Cloud.

Keating Taken to the Penitentiary.
Frank Keating, convicted of assault

mont, was sontonccd last Friday even
ing by Judge Adams to servo a term of
seven years at hard labor in tho stato
ponitontlary. Sheriff McArthur took
Keating to Lincoln last Tuesday morn
ing. Tho Keating caso has attractod con
siderable attention in Webster county
owing to tho mass of conflicting evi
dence and tho largo number of wit
nesses summoned by both sides. Tho
crimo for which Keating is now doing
time was committed on tho night of
December 4, 1901, and nt first no duo
to the guilty party was obtainable.
County Attorney Ovorman took up the
caso and after a thorough investiga
tion succeeded in securing tho arrest
of Keating at his home in Dakota
county, this state, a fow days after the
crimo bad been committed. Tho task
of fastening tbo folory upon Keating
was a difficult one, and Prosecuting
Attorney Ovorman dosorvos much
credit for tho able manner in which
tho caso was conducted, ho having
succeeded in socuring over fifty wit
nesses for the stato when the case
finally camo to trial.
Attorney John G. Potter, who con.
ducted the defense, mado a hard fight
for his client and bandied his side of
tho caso in an nble manner, but tho
groat mass of testimony introduced by
the prosecution could not bo overcotao
and Keating will have to pay tho pen
alty for his crime.

"Wine of Cardul is Indeed a blessing
to tired women. Having sulfered for
seven years with weakness and bearing-down
pains, and having tried sev
eral doctors and different remedies
with no success, your Wine of Cardul
was the only thing which helped me,
and eventually cured me It seemed to
build up the weak parts, strengthen
the system and correct Irregularities."
By "tired women" Mrs. Adams
means nervous women who have
disordered menses, falling of tho
womb, ovarian troubles or any of
these ailments that women have.
You can cure vourself at homo with
this great women's remedy, Wino
of Card ni. Wine of Cardui has
cured thousands of cases which
