SINCE the late Nebraska press associ
ation meeting , the impression has wid
ened and deepened that Colonel Edgar
Howard is standing out in the open ,
boldly , in the hope that lightning may
find him for a state office on the Fusion
ticket , coming fall.
THE attempted assassination of Will
iam Goebel of Kentucky is one of the
most dastardly crimes in the history of
that bloody state. But small hopes are
entertained of the injured man's re
covery , and smaller expectations are felt
that the cowardly would-be assassin
will ever be brought to justice.
EXPORTS of iron and steel manufac
tures amounted to $105.000,000 in 1899 ,
and the imports to only $15,000,000. In
1880 , twenty years ago , the exports
amounted to only $13 000,000 , and the
imports to $63,000,000. With this prac
tical evidence of the benefit of protec
tion , there are very few workingmen or
manufacturers who will listen with any
patience to the free-trade arguments in
the coining campaign.
The large and increasing circulation of
The Iowa Homestead in this county is
a matter for congratulation to the pub
lishers and to good farming , for , of all
the papers of its class in the country , it
is easily the best and most helpful. Its
Special Farmers' Institute editions , is
sued with the regular edition the first
week in each mouth , have been for years
the admiration of all practical farmers.
Written wholly by farmers , they are full
of actual experience and smell of the
soil. We have been fortunate enough
this season to secure terms for The
Homestead and its Special Farmers' In
stitute editions , together with The Poul
try Farmer and The Farmers' Mutual
Insurance Journal , four of the most val
uable farm publications in the country ,
that enable us to offer the four in con
nection with our own paper for $1.25 for
the entire five , one year. This is em
phatically a good thing , and no farmer
in this county should fail to take advant
age of the offer. For a large line of
thoroughly practical farm reading noth
ing has ever been offered before that
equals it. A county paper , a farm paper ,
a poultry paper , a farm insurance paper
and the Special Farmers' Institute , all
for $1.25. Come in and order them.

The object of DR. COE'S SANITARIUM is to furnish scientific medical and surgical
aid to the afflicted. Thousands in the vicinity of Kansas City can testify to the stability
of this institution and speak of it with pride. Hundreds of patients who have been given up to
die by their physcians and friends , have been brought to this Sanitarium on stretchers and cots
are to-day enjoying health and happiness and are living testimonials of DR. COE'S skill and
ability. There is hardly a community in many miles that has not furnished some almost incur
able case that has found a cure in this Sanitarium.
DR. COE is to-day one of the most successful surgeons in the country. His years of exper
ience and his magnificent sanitarium are the evidence of his success. If you are afflicted you
want the best. You don't want to be doctored , but cured. It is only reasonable for you to
think that you can be cured by one who has cured hundreds of others just like you , and many
much worse. A corps of physcians that are annualy treating thousands of patients can accom
plish many wonderful cures , when the doctor with only a small or limited practice , can only
be experimenting. We have many patients in your vicinity and as a matter of convenience , will
send one of our EX AMNING PHYSCIANS to your town with an X Ray apparatus and aD
other instruments required in making a thorough diagnosis. If you are afflicted from excesses or
intemperance of any kind , or if you are in need of medical or surgical aid , or if you have been
doctoring and taking medicine without relief , don't despair , you can be cured. Others have
been cured and there is no reason why you cannot be restored to health. Call on our doctor
and get an opinion of your case , and such other information as you may desire concerning our
Sanitarium. Don't forget the dates. A talk with us may save you a large doctor bill , and may
be the means of restoring vour health. CONSULTATION AND EXAMINATION FREE
