matched by tho heroism of Schmuck,
who re-ant ored tho burning building in
a futile ettort to savo Nichols, bis

Cutcheon, who remained in tho flames
until badly burned to assist his com

NEBRASKA FREE OF GRIME
Has Fewer Convicts In Proportion to
Population Than Other States.
Lincoln, Dec. 12. Nebraska has
fewer convicts in proportion to Its
population than any other state in tlio
union, according to Warden Heomer's
bienninl report. The per cent of illit
eracy among the inmates of the peni
tentiary Is also smaller than that of
any other slate. Warden Beemer asks
that the funds earned by convict labor
during tho last two years and during
tho coming blennlum bo appropriated
for tho uso or the penitentiary and
believes that this will bo au entirely
Of the 37-1 Inmates of tho Institu
tion, 2J:J admitted their guilt of tho
crime charged, while 131 declared
they wero innocent. Married men
seem to be less susceptible than sin
glo men to tho mlcrobo of crime, as
the proportion of inmates for two
years has been 104 married men to
270 slnglo men. Eighteen only woro
unable to read and w,rlte, seven wero
unablo to read only, wbllo 349 could

The Cause of Many

country most dangerous because so ilccep-
iive. Many sudden

heart failure or
apoplexy arc often
the result of kid

kidney trouble in
blood will at
tack the vital organs, causing catarrli of
tlte bladder, or tlio kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
IHadder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of Hie kidneys and
a cure is obtained quickest by n proper
treatment of the kione vs. If you are feel
ing badly you can make no mistake by
taking I)r. Kilmer's Swnmp-Root, the
great kidney, liver and bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to bold urine and
scalding pain in passing it, and over
comes that unpleasant necessity of being
compelled to go often through the day,
and to get up many times during the
night. The mild and the extraordinary
eftec, of Swninp-Rool is soon realimf.
It stands the highest for its wonderful
cures of the most distressing cases.
Swnmp-Koot is pleasant to take and is
sold bv all druggists in fifty-cent and
oiic-doilar si.e bottles. You may have n
sample bottle of this wonderful new dis
covery and a book that tells all about it,
