CIGARETTE LAW IS MODIFIED.
Supreme Court Decides Man Can Roll
Coffin Nail for His Own Use.
Lincoln, March 23. Tho Nebraska
supremo court gave a decision on tho
nntl-clgarette law, which was tested
In the courts by a young man arrested
on tho charge of rolling a cigarette.
Tho effect of the decision is to sus
tain tho law In general, making tho
sale and manufacture of cigarettes in
th'ls state Illegal, but the rolling of
cigarettes by individuals for their
own uso Is not called "manufacturing."
A few tines have been paid and sen
tences served under that part of tha
law which Is now declared unconstitu

motion of the state for a rehearing in

TWO CLAIM COAL REWARD.
Owner of Land and Man Who Finds
Coal Each After State Money.
Lincoln, March 2G. As a result of
tho discovery or coal near Peru a
lively contest, is liable to bo waged
over tho reward offered by the state
to the person making the discovery.
R M. Medley of Peru founij the vein,
after first securing a lease for coal
privileges on tho farm owned by A.
M. Vorst, on whose land the coal was
located. Now It Is reported, becauso
ho owns the land, Vorst claims the re
ward as well as the coal. Tho legis
lature appropriated $5,000 ns a reward
for the' discovery, but that appropria
tion of course bus lasped, though the
law Is still on the statutes. Under the
Inw tho auditor, it seems, according
to lawyers,- would have to Issue the
warrant, though the man to whom It
is issued may havo to wait until an
other legislature appropriates more
money before it can bo cashed. Med
ley, It Is said, has agreed to give
Vorst 50 cents a ton royalty for all
coal taken out of tho mine, i

ml scalding pain in passing it, or bad
effects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant ne
cessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many
times during the night. The mild nnd
the extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root
is soon realized. It stands the highest
for its wonderful cures of the mosta dis
