THE BANKERS RESERVE LIFE
Looks Forward to This Christmas
With More Than Ordinary
Christmas is the great Christian fes
tival. All other celebrations sink into
insignificance in the presence of this
brightest day of the calendar. Not
alone because of its deep religious im
portance do we enter into the festivi
tles of the birthday of our Lord and
Savior. It is the feast day of all, Jew
and Gentile, native and foreign born,
religionist and infidel, Catholic and
THE BANKERS RESERVE LIFE
has seen but five Christmas anniver
saries, but it comes to the front this
year all smiles and all good cheer. The
year 1902 has been a genuine record
breaker. No single month of the roll
ing year just passed has failed to make
its record on new business. The re
sult is most gratifying to the manage
ment and its friends. The
DAY OF SMALL THINGS IS PAST.
The Bankers Reserve Life, having
fought its way to the front, is in posi
tion to lead in the insurance field in
Nebraska. It should have $10,000,000
by July, 1903. The assets are rapidly
increasing. Next year, unless all s.igns
fail, it will receive an income of at
least $250,000 in cash. No wonder

True if Not Rhyme.
An esteemed contemporary reioices
because, as it claims, there is no rhvme
for "Monroe doctrine." The mere fact
that the aforesaid esteemed contempo
rary is an administration organ proves
that it is wrong.
And here's the proof:
The Monroe doctrine
Was lately knocked in.
A Long Time Ago.
This "world power" business Is causing u3 woe,
" Don't you know.
It's hard on the doctrine laid dowti by Monroe,
And that's so. 4
In days that are gone no time would we waste,
The land-grabbing nations would quickly be chased
From this hemisphere with the greatest of haste
But that was a long time ago.
Brave Stephen Decatur, in long ranished year3.
Toward the hold pirates see. swiftly he steers!
But we've changed the methods, and now we pursue
A course that is wrong, and for Uncle Sam new
We pension rank robbers like those in Sulu
And the sultan our flag ' mdly jeers.
This "manifest destiny" 'bout which we blow,
Don't you know,
Means hole3 in the doctrine laid down by Monroe,
And that's so.
Once we could remark with our words ringing clear,
"You monarchs of Europe, up anchor and steer
Away from our sisters in this hemisphere"
But that was a long time ago. '
Our forefathers brave fought for justice and right,
With their might.
And after the gloom of a long weary tight
Saw the light
But we have forgotten the lessons they taught;
Torn down the foundation they patiently wrought;
And for greed and empire we've schemed and we've fought.
And laughed to scorn Liberty's plight.
For freedom and justice we once struck a blow,
As you know.
And Liberty's torch o'er the world shed its glow,
And that's so.
For rights that are equal we once took a stand,
And denounced the vile habit of grabbing off land,
To sister republics we gave th3 glad hand
But that was a long tim ago.
This "thrown in our laps" is a species of graft
And of craft,
At which our forefathers so scornfully laughed
Loud, and chaffed.
Once we could boast loudly, "The starry flag means
Equality, freedom and right in all scenes,
But now that we've grabbed off the far Philippines
It seems that on "empire" we're daft
Once we could stand firm by the words of Monroe,
As you know.
And to back them up bravely we never were slow,
And that's so.
Once we never mixed in monarchical schemes,
And visions of empire ne'er troubled our dreams,
But, judged by events that are recent, it seems
That that was a long time ago.

It Is All Wrong and Man I the Only
Creature That Does It
The complete emptiness of the stom
ach during sleep aads greatly to the
amount of emaciation,, sleeplessness
and general weakness so ften met
with. There is a perpetual jchange ot
tissues in the body, sleeping or wak
ing, and the supply of nourishment
ought to bo somewhat contiguous and
food taken just before retiring, adds
more tissue than is destroyed, and in
creased weight and vigor is', the resul".
Dr. W. T. Cathell says: "All animal-;
except man eat before sleep and there
is no reason in nature why man should
form the exception to the rule."
If people who are thin, nervous and
sleepless would take a light lunch of
bread and milk or oatmeal and cream
and at the same time take a safe,
harmless stomach remedy like Stu
art's Dyspepsia Tablets in order to aid
the stomach in digesting it, the result
will be a surprising increase in weight,
strength and general vigor. The only
drawback , has been that, thin, nervous,
dyspeptic people cannot digest and as
similate wholesome food at night or
any other time. For such it is abso
lutely necessary to us Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets, because they will di
gest the food, no matter how weak
the stomach msy be, nourishing the
body and resting the stomach at the
Dr. Stevenson says: "I depend al
most entirely upon Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets in treating indigestion, be
cause it is not a quack nostrum, and I
know just what they contain, a com
bination of vegetable essences, pure
pepsin, and they cure dyspepsia and
stomach troubles, because, they can't
help but cure.' Stuart's Dyspepsi i
Tablets are rold by druggists every
where at 50 cent'i per package. They
are in lozenge fcrm, pleasant to take,
and contain nothing but pure pepsin,
vegetable essences and bismuth, scien
tifically compounded. Your druggist
will tell you they give universal satisfaction

The Bivouac of the Dead.
The muffled drum's sad roll has beat
The soldier's last tattoo;
No more on life's parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few.
On fame's eternal camping-ground
Their silent tents are spread.
A-.d glory guards with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead.
No rumor of the foe's advance
Now swell upon the wind;
No troubled thought at midnight
Of loved ones left behind;
No vision of the morrow's strife
The warrior's dream alarms;
No braying horn or screaming fife
At dawn shall call to arms.
Their shivered swords are red with
Their plumed heads are bowed;
Their haughty banner trailed in dust
Is now their martial shroud.
And plenteous funeral tears have
The red stains from each brow;
And the proud forms by battle gashed.
Are free from anguish now.
The neighing troop, the flashing blade,
The bugle's stirring blast,
The charge, the dreadful cannonade,
The din and shout, are past;
Nor war's wild note nor glory's peal
Shall thrill with fierce delight
Those breasts that nevermore may feel
The rapture of the fight. ,
Like the fierce northern hurricane
That sweeps his great plateau,
FLched with the triumph yet to gain."
Came down the serried foe.
Who heard the thunder of the fray
Break o'er the field beneath,
Knew well the watchword of that day
Was "Victory or death."
Theodore O'Hara. :
