As announced the Memorial services

day. Ihe house was packed full , including

Our position as correspondent does
not permit us to nnter into a politico
debate , so we shall be obliged to le
the challenge of the A. H. man pass
unanswered. But we are a little
shocked that our ex-mayor should so
forget the honorable position whicl
he has occupied and make a public
wager of one of his sacred relics , "His
Greeley Hat , " and as we have no Gree-
ley hat to put up and are restricted
from entering into a discussion , we wil
have to let the discussion be made by
those who have free use of printers'
ink. So Samuel , my son , go and lie
down again , I did not call yon.
A Note of Warning to the Public.
As a matter of justice to themselves
and to the reputation of Dr. Leslie E.
Keeley's Double Chloride of Gold reme
dies for the cure of the liquor , opium ,
morphine and tobacco diseases , and
neurasthenia , we warn the public that
these remedies are used by no institu
tion or sanitarium in the United States ,
except those established by our com
pany under the uniform name of "The
Keeley Institute. "
All others claiming to use our reme
dies are frauds and imposters.
We have now sixty Keeley Institutes
established in various parts of the
United States , the only one in Nebraska ,
south of the Platte river , is located at
Beatrice , where the Keeley treatment
is administered and the Keeley reme
dies sold. We , however , caution all to
examine well and know that they are
dealing with GENUINE REPRESEN
TATIVES , authorized by us , before
taking treatment or purchasing reme
The fraudulent establishments use
the name of "Bi-Chloride of Gold" or
similar titles. The newspapers do not
discriminate sufficiently to know that
they are imitators , and so put down all
accidents occurring at such establish
ments as being brought about by the
Keeley treatment. This is a matter of
much concern to us , hence this warning.
Respectfully Yours ,
THE LESLIE E. KEELEY CO. .
Curtis J. Judd , Sec'y and Treas.

One of the grandest horses in the
state is Smuggler , standing at the
Circle Front barn , kept by Corey &
Maddux. A farmer breaking two of
ais colts said , "They are splendid colts ,
stylish , kind and tough as iron. " That
s the kind to have. See one of his
, olts at J. H. Ludwick's. The proof
jf the pudding is in the eating , not in
he puffing. Go and see Smuggler , he
s the horse you want.

Has the actual difference in the
way CLOTHING- put up ever occurred
curred to you ? If it has not , a visit to
the various places where clothing is
sold will convince you that there is a
vast difference between "slop-shop
hand-me-downs" and clothing ( not
things ) made of good material and
nicely put together. Here is where
we have always made a strong point
and the fact that we are selling Men's and Boys' Suits
and Pants , trimmed , lined and sewed equal to any tailor
made suits , at prices as low , and often lower , than the "slop
shop" stuff explains in itself why we are doing so large a
slothing business. We have put forth an extra effort this
spring , and you will find our'tables loaded down with the
prettiest line of MEN'S , BOYS' AND CHILDREN'S SUITS
to be found on this market , and if you are looking for goodr
lionest goods at the lowest prices , we ask you to carefully
inspect this department. And in Hats , Shirts , Suspenders ,
Overalls , Jeans , Pants , SocKs , Ties , Night Shirts , etc. , we
have just what you want and at a price that will meet your
