av;i always said about the injustice
of railroad rebates. When people got
to expressing: in figures the near and
remote cost of railroad rebates the re
bates were quickly banned. Argue
against war that it has plunged th
nations of the world $34, 000,000,000 in
debt, iind that its annual cost in inter
est and armaments is at least $3,000,
C00,000 equal to half the gold supply of
the world, and the peace movement
fairly spins along. It is not so long since
people argued seriously that war caused
prosperity. In those days the demand
for universal peace deafened no ears.
Tlu-.ro la no doubt that the revulsion
against the liquor business which is
now apparently sweeping the country
is due less to the long heard tales of
starving wives and children and ruined
men than to the spread of the discovery
that the business is a dead waste in
volving the whole of society, not ex
eluding those portions that run their
schools on the license money. Mor
alists need not be discouraged by these
facts. In the last analysis the moral
thing and the economical - thing are
likely to coincide. ...

would eventually find it necessary to
abandon its present policy of scatter

in one county.
At the present time state institutions
are maintained in Lancaster, Gage,

these counties are represented by fif

The figures, taken in connection
with the vigorous language used by
the Kearney Hub conducted by one of
the cleanest and most patriotic editors
in Nebraska are conclusive In show

on a sound business basis.

and nutritive tracts are performed pro
cesses which are almost exactly like the
churning of butter. Is it not apparent
then that if this stomach-churn is foul it
makes foni all which is put into it?
The evil.of a foi'' stomach is not alone
the bad taste in the mouth and the foul'
breath caused by it, but the corruption of .
the pure current of blood and the dissem
ination of disease throughout the body.

makes the sour and foul stomach sweet. '
It does for the stomach what the washing
and sun bath do for the churn absolutely ,
removes every taiung or corrupting ele
ment. In this way it cures blotches,
pimples, eruptions, scrofulous swellings,
sores, or open eating ulcers and all
humors or diseases arising from bad blood.
If you have bitter, nasty, foul taste in
your mouth, coated tongue, foul breath,
are weak and easily tired, feel depressed
and despondent, have frequent headaches,
dizzy attacks, gnawing or distre&s in stom
ach, constipated or irregular bowels, sour
or bitter risings after eating and poor;

Colonel George "5f. Harvey at bi? Jef
ferson banquet, William R. Hearst at
his, and Mr.-Bryan at his, altogether
present a happy confusion of partisan
ship. Mr. Harvey is the brilliant edit
or of two or three magazines, supposed
to be controlled by J, Pierpont Morgan,
one of the "doers" whom he lauded in
his speech, and his democratic hostil
ity to Roosevelt republicanism was
matched only by his horror of Bryan
democracy. Mr. Hearst, whose voice
and newspapers can always be trusted
to speak for Hearst as IIe:irst sees
him is incapable of dissembling Ins
horror of any other man who might
by any eventuality become president
ahead of Hearst, so his Jeftersonism
is agiinst Bryan Jeffersonism even as
it is against all that is not pro-Keanst.
At another Jeffersonian banquet to
come later Mr. Bryan will take the
part of Mr. Harvey's "peerless leader
hobbling like a enrmie in the wake of
his successful rival, gathering as he
goes a few scraps that are left or his
own fallacies." Tho funny thing about
this cleavage at the top is that It goes
no deeper than the legs of the banquet
table where it shows itself. Among
the people below there is n sign of
the dissension that rages around the
champagne cups. For once and a won
der the "divide and conquer" scheme
is not working. Party lines are mighty
faint except when some party exploiter
mannges for a moment to draw his
pencil down an alleged line fence.
