The youngest registered pharmacist in

When it is remembered that Charlie is but
19 years old nnd that out of the whole
class examined at the time ho was only
five or six were able to answer a suffi

to entitle them to receive diplomas the

That thero may be tuberculosis in cat
tlo arouud here has probably not oc
curred to many people yet the fact that
one of Norfolks leading citizeus has re
cently discovered that his family cow
was thus affected aud had her killed
should serve to open the oyos of other
people This gentleman had a cow that
was sleek aud ate heartily but was
afllicted with a cough that disturbed
him aud finally called iu Dr C A Mc
Kim to look at her Mr MoKim pre
scribed for her thinking that she had a
cold or perhaps some other trouble but
the prescriptions did no good aud it was
finally decided to bo tuborculosis Ac
cordingly an injection of tuberculeno
was sent for aud after being treated
with it the animals temperature became
very high conclusively demonstrating
that she had the disease The owner
might have sold her as she appeared in
excellent condition but he ordered her
shot which was done This is the dis
easo that occupies so much attention
further east oud is the result of tho same
disease in persons ofteu developing iuto
consumption The laws in some stntes
provide that a person whose animal is
condemued is reimbursed by the state
but there is no such provision in Nebras
ka and the person who kills or orders a
cow killed does so at a dead loss
Coin Harveys evening meeting was
fairly well attended but when is
taken iuto consideration the vast amount
of effort that was put into making the
meeting tho greatest thing that ever
happened in this section of the world
the result must have been rather disap
pointing It had been planned to issue
tickets of admission to the hall and a
large number of front seats were reserved
for farmers but wheu It was found that
these wero not likely to be occupied
there was a scurrying about the streets
to got euough people to fill the hall
Wheu Coin Harvey opened his address
there were probably 150 voters preseut
to listen to him at least a third of whom
were republicans He told tho same
old stories that have been heard for the
past three or four years and asserted
that the country is in no better conditiou
today than it was three years ago He
was profuse iu his sympathy for the poor
farmer of the weft who is suffering from
the effects of the money power The
speaker probably did not realize that ho
was in a community where tho farmers
as a class are the ones who have tho
money and consequently are in need of
no sympathy of the kind lib erteuded
What tho farmers of this section partfl
ularly want just now is some place to
invest their surplus cash to good advan
tage The decision of those who heard
Coin Harvey last night is that he is a
very much overrated man Ho is not au
orator and his points are poorly taken
He was emphatically called down on
some of his wildest statements by Mr S
K Dexter who was in the audience
By the time he had finished his address
about three quarters of his audience had
vanished having become disgusted aud
left the hall
