TTHE S1ATE liiPIML
MATTERS OF INTEREST TO ALL
RETURNS. SLOW COB IN
Eleven Counties Yet to Be Heard from
Before Tabulated Statement
Lincoln Returns from eleven coun
ties are yet to be received before the
secretary of state can complete the'
tabulation, of the official returns from
the primary election held September 1.
Most people, except those personally
interested, take much interest in the
matter so far as the large majority of
the state offices are concerned. The
result has been known for many days
except in the case of candidates for
the nomination for state auditor.
Eighty counties reported give Barton
9,930, and Alden 10,608. Among the
missing counties is Douglas which
gave Barton a plurality of about 1,100.
Barton's nomination by about 250 is
considered assured. The counties miss
ing from the official returns are
Brown, Butler, Deuel, Douglas, Hayes,
Holt, Polk, Rock, Thayer and Wash
ington. Unless the figures are not deceptive.
W. B. Price of Lincoln, the democratic
nominee for state auditor, is also nom
inated by 250 or more. Mr. Price is
probably as much surprised as any
one over the result of the primaries.
He desired to be a candidate for con
gress in the First district but was sud
denly pulled off at the last moment
and informed by the leaders of his
party that he could not run for con
gress. Unbeknown to him some of his
democratic friends then filed nomina
tion papers for him for the office of
Congressman Hinshaw believes the
newspaper reports have given him too
much of a majority over his opponent.
His reports are official with the excep
tion of reports from three counties. He
believes the returns give him 7.S6S,
Aldrich 3,809; a majority of 4,059.
It is shown by the official returns
that the two constitutional amend
ments submitted for adoption by polit
ical parties to be placed on the ballot
this fall as party measures have been
adopted by all political parties, repub
lican, democrat, populist and even so
cialists. The returns show some oppo
sition, however, among the democratic
ranks to the amendment increasing
the number of supreme judges, in
creasing their salary and increasing
the salary of judges of the district
courts and providing for the appoint
ment of four supreme judges by the
governor. This opposition is shown in
Valley county, where the democrats
defeated this amendment, and in Web
ster, Kearney and Harlan, where thy
populists defeated the amendment re
lating to the judiciary. The amend
ment for the investment of state
school funds in school district bonds
and such other securities as the legis
lature may from time to time direct,
appeared to be more popular every
where than the judiciary amendment.
The real test of the popularity of the
amendments will come at the Novem
ber election, when they are to be voted
upon for final adoption or rejection as
a part of the state constitution.
If the candidates do not amend their
affidavits. Edgar Howard of Columbus
will be recorded as having spent more
money in his campaign than was spent
by his opponent. James P. Latta of Te
kamah. Secretary of State Junkin has re
ceived a message showing that W. A.
Stewart of Lexington was nominated
by the republicans of the Thirteenth
senatorial district by a majority of
twenty-three. Stewart's opponent came
out for county option and he opposed
it. This was an issue of importance
in the district. Stewart is said to have
won because of his rerord as a pro
gressive as against his opponent, who
has been identified with the old ma
chine for many years.

dealers of Omaha filed a petition with

out of Lincoln to points in the state

Things that Should be Carefully
Guarded Against by Afflicted.
In the home treatment for tuber

yqurself against taking too much exer

exercise at all. The fever is the "con

in the disease. Hence, if you have
fever, you should not even sit up, you
should lie down, -.'his is an important
point and those who imagine that they
should take vigorous and heroic exer
cise should have their minds dis
abused at once. (A person who is

Your recovery will depend largely
on temperament. The cure must bo
earned and it will require an extended
period of time to do this. There is
small chance for you if you are a

and painstaking action is required, in

must be maintained. There will al

will find ultimate and large reward.

To quote from a current magazine:
"That it is stupid to bo sick is a new
idea, because we have always believed
that most of our Illnesses are either
foreordained or accidents. Now wo

of 1902, my annoyanco from catarrh
reached that stage where it was actual
misery and developed alarming symp
toms, such as a very dccp-scatcd cough,
night sweats, and pains in the head and
chest. I experimented with several so
called remedies before I finally decided
to take a thorough course of Peruna.
"Two of my friends had gone so far as
to inform me that the thing for mo to do
was to resign my position and seek a
highcr,morecongcnial climate. Every
ono thought I had consumption and L
was not expected to live very long.
"Having procured some Peruna, I de
cided to give it a thorough test and ap
plied myself assiduously to tho task of
taking it, as xcr instructions, in the
meantime. "Tho effects were soon apparent, all
alarming symptoms disappeared anil
my general health bocamo fully as good
as it had over been in my life.
"I havo resorted to tho use of Peruna
on two or thrco occasions 6tnco that
time to cure myself of bad colds."
. BATHING AN INDIAN IDOL.
Curious Ceremony Attended by Thou
sands of Devout Pilgrims.
Thousands of pilgrims from the va
rious outlying villages and other parts
of the Hooghly district poured in from
an early hour In the morning to the
temples of Jagernath. says the Cal
cutta Statesman. ;
The image of the god is placed on,
a conspicuous part or tho temple, so.
that it can be viewed at an advantage,
by the immense crowd of pilgrims,!
and there at a certain fixed hour the
bathing ceremony commences. !
The most curious part of the festi
val is that water is not poured on tho
image of the god until a certain small
bird is found sitting on the topmost
banner of the temple. There is a pop
ular belief that the bird comes from
Puri.the famous place of Hindu pilgrim
age, to Maheoh on the day of this,
festival, and his very presence is an
indication that the ceremony should
commence. Immediately after the
bath the bird disappears.

a Mass of Itching Rash and Sore3
Disease Cured by Cuticura.
"Our little girl was two months old
when she got a rash on her face and
within five days her face and head
were all one sore. We used different
remedies but it got worse instead of
better and we thought she would tnrn
blind ar.d that her ears would fall off.
She suffered terribly, and would
scratch until the blood came. This
went on until she was five months old.
then I had her under our family doc
tor's care, but she continued to grow
worse. He said it was eczema. When
she was seven months old I started
to use the Cuticura Remedies and in
two months our baby was a different
girl. You could not see a sign of a
sore an'd she was as fair as u new
born baby. She has not had a sign of
the eczema since. Mrs. II. F. Bwdke.
