Although met by the refusal ol
Treasurer Brian to join with them,
confronted by an opinion from Com
missioner Calkins that the new nor
mal board is not legally constituted
and cast upon a cold world by Auditor

SAVING PAINT MONEY
It Cannot Be Done by Using Cheap
Material and Cheap Painters.
In arranging for painting, a good
many property-owners try to save
money by employing the painter who
offers to do the job cheapest or try
to save money by insisting on a low
priced paint. But no property-owner
would run such risks if he realized
what must be taken into considera
tion in order to get a job that will
wear and give thorough satisfaction.
No houseowner will go wrong on
the painting question if he writes Na
tional Lead Company, 1902 Trinity
Building. New York, for their House
owner's Painting Outfit No. 49, which
is sent free. It is a complete guide
to painting. It includes a book of
color schemes for either exterior or
interior painting, a book of specifica
tions, and an instrument for detecting
adulteration in paint materials.
Nearly every dealer has National
Lead Company's purn white lead.
(Dutch Boy Painter rademark.) If
yours has not notify National Lead
Co., and arrangements will be made
for you to get it.
Regents Create New Department.
A new department of Slavonic lan
guages with Miss Miller as an instruc
tor was created by the regents of the
state university. The board also rec
ommended the establishment of a
Swedish department, provided the
proper interest was shown in the new
course. Some time ago the regents
were petitioned for a new Swedish
department, but the matter was
dropped at that time since only about
To,CHH) Swedes reside in Nebraska and
it was thought that the department
would not receive sufficient support.
The board reconsidered the matter,
however, and will in all probability
take favorable action upon it.
The resignation of Captain John
G. Workixer as commandant of the
university cadets was accepted and
Captain Yates, a former Nebraska,
graduate, was accepted as his suc
cessor. The change is to take effect
next fall. The following were chosen:

Grief That Kills. -"My
poor boy," said the beneficent
old clergyman, who had encountered a
young waif sobbing in the streets,
"what ails you? Some case of dire
distress has touched your heart
chords, no doubt."
"No." sniffed the lad. -you're clear
off your base, old kazxoxicks. Me an
Snippy an de rest of de fellies tin
canned the mangy, old yellow cur up
at Schwarx grocery, and while old
Schwars an de gang followed the
dog. I sneaked back to the grocery to
swipe dried apples. De Fido chased
into Schmitt's orchard and de gang
cribbed de swellest peaches you ever

cigarettes and set the barn a fire- I
made a sashay into de apple barrel at

Prods Fraternal Orders.
State Auditor Barton proposes to
enforce the law requiring fraternal
beneficiary societies to have a repre
sentative form of government. The
statute requires this and the supreme
court has defined a representative
form of government, but Auditor Bar
ton is the first auditor who has bad
the courage to try to strictly enforce
the law. The decision ot the court
on which he bases his action was giv
en in the case of Lange vs. The Royal
Highlanders, wherein it was held that
the inherent right to enact laws for
the government ot a corporation is
In its stock holders and that this au
thority cannot be assumed by com
mittees or directors or other bodies
without express authority, that a rep
resentative form ot government
means one conducted by the agency
ot delegates "chosen by the people."

"Well, yes," said Old Uncle Lazzen-

with most of the happenstances of the

her engagement with Charles Henry
Tootwiler. They'd be goin together
for about eight years, durin which
time she had been inculcatin into him,
as you might call it, the beauties of
economy; but when she discovered,
just lately, that he had learnt his les
son so well that he had saved up 217
pairs ot socks for her to darn im
mediately after the wedding, she
"peared to conclude that he had takon
her advice a little top literally, and
broke off the match.'" Puck.

"Can't," moaned the duke. "All the

One day three-year-old Baby Jess

Jess answered: "Yes. ma'am." k

Not Our Discovery.

taught the doctrine ot (he rotundity
of the earth, and the ideas of the
sphere, its poles, axis, the equator,
arctic and antarctic circles, equinoc

generally entertained by the wise men
of that time. There were plenty of
men in Rome, therefore, who were
prepared to talk about the earth as a

New Pavilion to Cost $50,000.
Arrangements have been begun for
the construction ot the new stock
judging pavilion at the state fair
grounds tor which the legislature ap
propriated J50.000. Secretary Mellor,
of the state board ot agriculture, was
at the grounds Friday preparing plats
for the structure. The board of direc
tors has decided on the location of
the building and has made plans to
construct it 150x300 feet in size.
Only one-half ot the building will
be constructed this year, the board
having decided that the other part
will not be built until more funds are
secured from the state. The new pa
vilion will be located on the low
ground west of the auditorium and
between the race track and the cattle
barns. The structure when compelted
will cost 100.000.
In Its monthly statement the Ameri
can K i press company shows tbat its

upon to pay occupation tax, amounted
in March to 32.34, upon which it has
paid $10.82. A similar report by the
Adams Express company sltows a
total local business ot $2,223.89. upon
which is paid amounting to 155.64.

ing the battle ovtr the early closing

Kearney City Bonds Rejected.
After having heard arguments of at
torneys State Auditor Barton has re
jected the $100,000 water bonds issued
by the city of Kearney and presented
to him for registration. The city pro
posed to build a plant or to buy the
American Water company's plant. The
latter was appraised at $165,000. The
bonds voted are of doubtful legality.
according to the auditor's opinion, and
the city will have to go into court to
get a reversal ot his holding. The
bonds were not sufficient in amount to
buy the private water plant.

as with joyous hearts and smiling faces they romp and play when In health and
how conducive to health the games in which they indulge, the outdoor Hfe they
enjoy, the cleanly, regular habits they should be taught to form and the wholesome
diet of which they should partake." How tenderly their health should be preserved,
not by constant medication, but by careful avoidance of every medicine of an injuri
ous or objectionable nature, and tf at any time a remedial agent is required, to assist
nature, only those of known excellence should be used; remedies which are pure
and wholesome and truly beneficial in effect, like the pleasant laxative remedy.
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co.
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna has come into general favor in many millions of
well informed families, whose estimate of its quality and excellence Is based upon
personal knowledge and use.
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna has also met with the approval of physicians gen
erally, because they know it is wholesome, simple and gentle in its action. We inform
all reputable physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna, obtained by an original method, from certain plants known to them to act
most beneficially, and presented in an agreeable syrup In which the wholesome Cal
ifornian blue figs are used to promote the pleasant taste; therefore It is not a secret
remedy, and hence we are free to refer to all' well informed physicians, who do
not approve of patent medicines and never favor indiscriminate self-medication.
- Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup of Figs
and Elixir of Senna always has the. full name of the Company California Fig
Syrup Co. plainly printed on the front of every package and that it is for sale in
bottles of one size only. If any dealer offers any other than the regular Fifty cent
size, or having printed thereon the name of any other company, do not accept it
If you fail to get the genuine you will not get its beneficial effects. Every family
should always have a bottle on hand, as it is equally beneficial for the parents and
.the children, whenever a laxative remedy is required.
