S. soldiers who served In Cuba during ( he Spanish war know what this disease In and that ordinary rem edies have little more effect than so much water. Cuban diarrhoea is al most UN M'veie and dangerous as a mild attack of cholera. There Is one remedy , however , that can always be depended upon as will bo seen by the following certlllcnto from Mrs. Min nie Jacobs of Houston , Texas : "I hereby certify that Chamberlain's col ic , cholera and diarrhoea remedy cured my husband of a severe attack of Cuban diarrhoea , which ho brought homo from Cuba. We had several doctors hut they did him no good. One bottle of this remedy cured him , as our neighbors will testify. 1 thank God for so valuable a medicine. " For sale by Leonard the druggist. A PATENT MEDICINE DRUNK. Lo , the Poor Indian , Has n New Way of Getting n Jag , Some of the redskins that are vis iting In Norfolk are on n hilarious drunk , and they have an original way of accumulating a jag. They are not compelled to boot leg whisky ; they are not oven reducing the stock of lemon extract they are taking patent medicine in liberal doses. They are cunning enough to know which con tains the most alcohol and the way It gurgles down their dry throats they seem to have no fear of consequences from the medicine It may contain. Another cunning thing about it is that there Is no question but that they are entitled to buy patent medicine If they want It and have the money. A drug gist may not question the require ments of his customers except whore they want stronger poisons such as strychnine or morphine , and whether John Blackhorsc 1ms a pain in his In terior or Mrs. Brownbear Is afflicted with lung trouble or llttlo Tallmount- aln has the itch or hives , is not for him to know. If the reds have the nioney they get the mediclno and no questions asked , , the same as would anyone else asking for the same sort of dope. ' Elocution and Music. Miss Evelyn Bargolt. assisted by local musical talent , entertained nt the M. 13. church last night under the auspices of the choir. A novelty teNet Not folk people were the rapidly exe cuted sketches with which Miss Bar- gelt Illustrated her readings and this , combined with her clever word portrayals trayals of character , and the very ex cellent music made It nn evening of enjoyment to those present. Miss Bargel't was considered especially good In child mimicry , but her spat between n newly wedded couple was scarcely second in popularity to the numbers introducing the children. Vocal solos by Miss Harriet Allbery and Mr. Reese Solomon met with hearty approval , and the piano duets I by Mrs. II. L. Snyder and Miss Dre- i bert and Mrs. M. C. Hazen and Mrs. Snyder were excellently rendered and well received. ! Dr. J. C. Myers , graduate Chicago Veterinary College , successor to Dr. , McKIm. Day calls , Krontz's livery barn.

LOUIS It Was There .it the Fair That Lawrence - rence Valentine , Owner of One of the Largest of Northwest Ranches , Fell In Love With Sada Yeno. Out on Hie Colonel Valentine ranch on Keya Palm creek , near Sprlugvlow , Ndi. , a gieii ! sensation has Just been sprung In the announcement that the active head of the ranch , l < ii\vn > nco Valentine , has chosen for himself n Japanese bride and that the wife was quietly Installed In the household as his wife eight months ago. The Valentine ranch extends over In Nebraska and Is thickly dotted many hundreds of the richest valley with thoroughbred cattle Its young master IH rich In this world goods and richer still , HO ho says , In the happi ness that attends the possession of so charming a wife us his little Sada Yeno. II was while attending the St. Ixiuls exposition last summer that "Larry , " as he Is popularly known , met his fato. Sada Yono and her father wore proprlntors of a tea bouse * to which an extensive patronage was attracted because of the charming personality of the petite , demure little Jap girl. Young Valentino became Interested In her while sipping tea , and amused himself arguing that Russia could and would defeat Japan. She was Intense ly patriotic and ( he lire ( lint Hashed from her eyes as she answered him found a lodgment In his heart that Cupid was eaioful to foster. He ob tained her father's consent to take n moonlight stroll with her through the broad avenues nf the exposition grounds , and there the Hashes from her eyes were softened by the moon beams most effectively. To make n long story short , "Larry" fell bead over heels In love with the pretty , modest Sada Yeno. Me proposed and was accepted. Then It Hashed upon his mind that there would be the devil to pay when he returned home to face the anger of the old colonel anil the Jests of his friends. For was he not the hand somest and wealthiest chnp in bis neighborhood noted as the best catch In miles around and the Idol of half the girls of his acquaintance. So it was that they went to Mountain Grove , In Wright county , 'Missouri , wore secretly married and then deter mined lo keep their marriage a secret for a time. Of course , "Larry's" fa ther must know , but no one else was Informed until last week. Since then piesents and congratulations have been showered upon them without number and Sada Yeno has received enough attention to turn the bead of an American girl.

THE PRAIRIES ARE DEVELOPING Farmer * and Ranchmen Should Select Treea Valuable for Their Lumber as Well as for Shade , Wind'Breaks and Other Uses , The following bulletin from the bu reau of forestry , United States de partment of agriculture , tells what the government is doing to help the farmers attain better values from the land sot aside for tree culture : In the states of the middle west there Is pressing need of more trees , both for wood and for windbreaks and shelter-belts. This need has been felt since the prairies were first settled , but the attempts mndo to supply It have , ns a rule , fallen short of the ben-1 eflts which might have been secured. The early planting was done chiefly for the sake of ornament or shade ; the usefulness of the species for wood was seldom considered. . In many cases , also , trees were planted out- sldo of the range to which they were adapted , and on soil and In locations unfavorable to them. On the other hand , many valuable species wore neglected. Experience has now furnished the basis for hotter practice. Various kinds of trees can bo grown In those regions which will serve Just as well for protection and ornament as those which have been most used , and which at the same time will furnish valuable wood. For several years the bureau of forestry has been investigating' this subject , with results which are recog nized throughout the prnlrlo region as of great practical value. The work consists of field studies of the exist ing forest growth , both natural and planted , of Its relation to soil and cli matic conditions , and of the effect of various cultural methods. In carrying on the work bureau field parties examine and make measure ments of representative groves. From these measurements volume and yield tables are made which show the re turns In cordwood , posts , stakes and lumber to be expected In a given time for each of the species studied. In addition to the measurements , the characteristics of growth and repro duction of the trees are noted , and valuable data on the natural distribu tion and advisable planting range ob tained. The work In the eastern part of the two Dakotas , western Minnesota , 1111- ' nols , eastern Nebraska and western ! Kansas Is already done. A bulletin I based on the study In western Kan-1 sns has been published , giving infor-1 mation concerning the species most I suitable to the locality and telling I how and where to plant thorn. Bui- ' letlns of the same character covering other states are In preparation. This summer Iowa will he studied , and lat er other states of the middle west , un til the whole region is covered. Con siderable tree planting has been done In crmin nf tlincn ctnfnc nnnnelnnoll\ complete success ; hut there have men many total failures , and many Utempts successful only in part. As i rule , the lack of success was due to lack of knowledge bow and what to ) lnnt. But these plantations , whether successful or not , provide valuable object lessons in respect to future planting. An important part of the study will lie to determine to what extent the natural forest growth along streams find elsewhere is encroaching upon the drier upland in consequence of the protection from fire which settle ment gives Where this native growth ? an be utilized , It may bo advisable to > nconrnge It. Generally , however , the planting of species obtained from a distance will bo necessary. The problem Is to establish on the fertile prnlrlcs of the middle west the trees that will grow rapidly , and thus quick ly furnish protection from the drying winds of winter , while nt the same time yielding the timber most desir able for farm construction purposes , and possibly for lumber. It Is the In tention of the bureau to determine exactly which are the most suitable Rpcclcs , and how they should he plant ed and cultivated to secure the best success. CROWDS BEGIN TO ARRIVE. Morning Trains Bring Visitors for the- Celebration. The crowds began to arrive In Nor folk on the early trains today for the two days of celebration , the street fair and the races. By noon there were men standing several deep around the stands whore you pay your money , watch the spindle go round and smoke the cigar If you are lucky enough to draw. RAINS ON BUNTING TODAY. Water Began to Fall at 10 O'clock but Stopped aLter. Rain which began falling in Norfolk at 10 o'clock today , In spite of the wea ther man , took n fall out of much of the red , white and blue bunting and flags that had boon hung up for the celebration. The streets wore con siderably moistened , also by the v/a- ter. The rain stopped within a half hour and the fair weather flag still gave hope to the celebrators that to morrow will yet turn to and be n. cloudless Fourth of July. BRIDGE OVER NIOBRARA. Structure South of Verdel Is Said to be In Critical Condition. The big new span bridge across the Nlobrara river south of Verdel Is re ported to be In critical condition and It is said that unless It Is repaired at once It will be n wreck in the river. The cap on the south side has almost slipped off the piling and when It does go down , down goes $4,000 into the river , says the Verdel Outlook.
