Soda Crackers
anything yon choose milk for instance or alone.
At every meal or for a munch between meals, when
yon feel the need of an appetizing bite to fill up a vacant
corner, in the morning when you wake hungry, or at
night just before going to bed. Soda crackers are so
light and easily digested that they make a perfect food at
times when you could not think of eating anything else.
But as in all other things, there is a difference in sod
crackers, the superlative being
Uneeda Biscuit
a soda cracker so scientifically baked that all the nutri
tive qualities of the wheat are retained and developed
a soda cracker in which all the original goodness is
preserved for you.

and 20th the Burlington makes very low excursion rates
to the Big Horn Basin, the North Platte Valley and
Eastern Colorado.
ernment work is under full headway towards putting
water on two hundred thousand acres of land adjacent
to the Burlington road, at an average cost of $25.00 an
acre. It is possible today to secure homestead lands
along these great ditches, in advance of the water. You
can also buy from private concerns very fine irrigated
lands, under a full and permanent water supply, at
prices ranging from $25 to $40 per acre. The history
of western irrigated lands shows that their value has
increabed over 100 per cent in the past few years. There
are arers of irrigated lands in the west that cannot be
bought today for $300 an acre. .
IT WILL PAY YOU to get interested in irrigated
lands, and to get in touch with the land agents in the
North Platte Valley, the Big Horn Basin, the Billings,
Montana, district, or Eastern Colorado. If you will
write me for irrigation literature descriptive of any of
these localities. I will mail it to you free, together with
a list of land agents.

her husband who recently returned
from Waehinton to accept a position
in a creamery
Considerable interest is being taken
in the approaching election of the

among the stockholdres.
News was received the first of the

The deceased was a traveling man and

that several citizens of that town have
invested in wild cat mining stock of

We wonder if there is a single citizen
of Columbus who ever drew a cent of
dividends on stock of this kind.

More than half mankind over sixty
years of age suffer from kidney and blad
der disordars, usually enlargement of
prostate gland. This is both painful
and dangerous and Foley's Kidney Cure

cured many old men of this disease. Mr.
Rodney Burnett, Rock Port Mo., writes:
"I suffered with enlarged prostate gland
and kidney trouble for years and after
taking two bottles of Foley's Kidney
Cure I feel better than I have for twen
ty years although I am 91 years old."

had been called a few davs previous
on account of the illness of his son
Edward who is attending school there.
The young man ,was sufficiently re
covered to be able to accompany his
father home and he will remain at
home for a week or so before retron

P P. Reide of Lindsay a member cf
the advisory board of the same asso

ing up the mutferh pertain ng to the
suit brought against the Humphrey
saloon keepers by Mrs. Mary Savidge
widow of the late Charles Savidge
Mihs I$ Maclaren has sued the
Humphrey school district for the pay
ment to an order of $50 for teaching
school in the Humphrey schools for
the month of January 1906. The order
was refused payment bv J. E Hogg
treasurer of the sohool district on the
grounds that Miss Maclaren was not
legally hired. At the time of tho
death of Miss Durrie who was teaob
er in the primary room. Miss Ma
claren was hired to take the place of
tbe deceased teener until the first of
January, and until the end of tbe
school year, provided she gave satis
faction. In substance the above is as
the minutes o' tbe meeting appear on
the books However, it i6 claimed by
members of the board that an agree
ment was entered to requiring Miss
Maclaren and Mies Carrig, who for
some reason or other had been nn
frinudly to each other, to lay aside
the differnces and bbcouie friends It
uppears that the two teanbtrc contin
ued to be unfriendly, where upon at
the meetinng of tbe board in Decem
bre, as The Democrat understands it
an effort was made to declare the posi

resutled in a tie and this is the v.v

Return of..
Sherlock Holmes
"Exactly. This end, which we can
examine, is frayed. He was cunning
enough to do that with his knife. But
the other end Is not frayed. You could
not observe that from here, but if you
were on the mantelpiece you would
see that it is cut Hean on without any
maik of fraying whatever. You can
reconstruct what occurred. Tin man
needed the rope. He would not tear
It down for fear of giving the alarm
by ringing the bell. What did he do?
He sprang upon the mantelpiece, could
not quite reach it, put his knee on the
bracket you will see the impression in
the dust and so got his knife to bear
upon the cord. I could not reach the
place by at least three Inches, from
which I infer that he is at least three
inches a bigger man than I am. Look at
that mark upon the seat of the oaken
chair! What is it?"
"Undoubtedly It l blond. This alone
puts the hfi.y's story out of court. If
she were seated on the chair whe.
the crime was done, how comes that
Mrk? No, no; she was placed in the
chair after the death of her husband.
I'll wager that the black dress shows
a. corresponding mark to this. We
have not yet met our Waterloo, Wat
son, but this is our Marengo, for it
begins in defeat and ends in victory.
I should like now to have a few words
with the nurse. Theresa. We must be
wary for awhile if we are to get the
information which we want."
She was an interesting person, this
stern Australian nurse taciturn. k;js
picious, uugracions. It took some time
before Holmes' pleasant maimer and
frank acceptance of all she said thaw
ed her into a corresponding amiability.
She did not attempt to conceal her ha
tred for her late employer.
"Yes, sir, it is true that he threw the
decanter at me. 1 heard him call my
mistress a name, and I told him that
be would not dare to speak so if her
brother had been there. Then it was
that he threw it at me. lie miht have
thrown a doen if he had but left my
bonny bird aloue. He was forever ill
treating her. and she too proud to com
plain. She will not even tell me all
that he has done to her. She never told
me of those marks on her arm that you
saw this morning, but I know very
well that they come from a stab with
a hatpin. The sly devil God forgive
tne that I should speak of him so now
that he ia dead! But a devil he was it
ever one walked the earth. He was all
honey when first we met him. only
eighteen months ago. and we both feci
as if it were eighteen years. She had
only just arrived in Loudon. Yes, it
was her first voyage. She had never
been from home before. He won her
with his title and his money and his
false London ways. If she made a
mistake slit has paid for It If ever a
woman did. What month did we moot

Lady Uracl.entall was reclining on
the same couch, bill locked brighter
than before. Tic maid had int.- .!
with us and begun once more to foment
the bruise upon her mistress' brow.
"I hope." s.fid the lady, "lint you

If you will treat me as a frieiitl and
triKt me you may tiud that I will jus

"What do you want me to do?"
"To tell me the truth."
"Mr. Holme!"
"Xo. no. Lady Rrnckenstnll: it is no
use. You may have heard of any little
reputation which I tosos. I will
stake it all on the fact that your story
Is an absolute fabrication."
Mistress and maid were both staring
at Holmes with pale faces and fright
ened eyes.
"Yon, are an impudent fellow!" cried
Theresa. ';I)o you mean to say that
my midres has told a He?"
Holmes roe from his chair.
"Have you nothing to tell me?"
"I have told you everything."

"I have told you all I kn w."
Holmes took his hn't and shrugged
his shoulders. "I am sorry." he said.
And without another word we left the
room and the house. There was a
pond in the park, and to this ray friend
led the way. It was frozen over, but a
single hoi" was left for the conven
ience of a solitary swan. Holmes gaaed
at it and then passed on to the lodge
gate. Then he scribbled a short Bote
for Stanley Hopkins and left it with
the lodge keeier.
