In selecting a heating stove, it
is natural to seek one that produces
the greatest amount of heat with
the least fuel, that is easy to regu
late, cleanly in operation, and pos
sessing desirable features.
The "Novel Superior" fulfils
all the above requirements and is
indeed one of the best heating stoves
ever constructed for obtaining good
results in the use of coal.
Very little coal is needed to
operate, the combustion is perfect,
and the distribution of heat uniform.
The NOVEL SUPERIOR is built
upon a new orginal plan.

Files of the Journal November J5, 1874
At this place, during the past week, a
variety of weather prevailed. Rain, fol
lowed by a quiet, gentle snow, with one
or two tolerably cold days, making very
nice winter weather.
Win. Burgess, U. 8. agent for the
Pawnees, called at the Journal office
Monday morning on business. - We
learned from him that he would start for
the Indian territory, leaving here Mon
day last In our opinion the department
could not have' selected, a more 'suitable
person for locating the new reserve. .. .
We learn' from the Grand Island In
dependentthst the citizens are about or
ganizing a party for a grand buffalo,
hunt, to start from Grand Island next
Monday. About fifty teams and one
hundred men will be needed to join the
party. Hunters will regard this party
as a nioeobance for rare sport and by
distributing the proceeds among the
meatless grasshopper sufferers will make
glad the heart of many a generous hunt
er. No man can deny the fact that there is
pluck in the citizens of Nebraska. There
is a determination, a vim, that is very
appropriate in times like the present.
A gentle man has just stepped out of
our sanctum, the father of a family, who
lost many a dollar by agrassbopper raid,
who don't know where his winter's fuel
is coming from, who wean his old cloth
es, cuts down his grocery bills, and re
mains hopeful through all that Provid
ence which has oared for him hitherto
will not fail him in the time of need.
Pollock & Co. the Druggists Give
Facts Regarding Dyspepsia.
Although Indigestion and Dyspepsia
are so prevalent, most people do not
thoroughly understand their cause and
cure. There is no reason why people
should not eat anything they desire if
they will only ohew it carefully and
thoroughly. Many actually starve them
selves into sickness through fear of eat-,
ing every good-looking, good-smelling
and good-tasting food, because it does
not agree with them.
Dieting cannot cure Dyspepsia. If we
refuse every article of food that disagrees
with us, before long we .have nothing
left, and find ourselves chronic dyspep
tics. We can cure Dyspepsia. We are so
confident of this fact that we guarantee a
cure, and promise to supply the medicine
free of all cost to everyone who will use
it, who is not perfectly satisfied with the
results which it produces. We exact no
promises, and put no one under obliga
tion whatever. Surely, 'nothing could
be fairer. We are located right here in
Columbus, and our reputation should be
sufficient assurance of our offer.
We want everyone in Columbus who is
troubled with Indigestion or Dyspepsia
in any form to come to our store and get
a box of Bexall Dyspepsia tablets.
Take them home and give them a reason
able trial, according to directions. They
are very pleasant to take; they soothe
the irritable stomach, strengthen and
invigoratthe digestive organs, promote
a healthy and natural bowel action, im
mediately relieve nausea and all stomach
irritation, produce perfect and healthy
digestion and assimilation, and promote
A 26o. package of Rexall Dyspepsia
Tablets furnishes 15 days' treatment.' In
ordinary cases, this is sufficient to pro
duce a cure. In more chronic cases, a
longer treatment, of course, is necessary,
and depends upon the severity of the
trouble. For such cases, we have two
larger sizes which'sell for 45c and 89c

Peruvian Women fteplaee Somber
Headgear with Colors.
As the visitors from the American
feet went, about in Lima., one change,
national in character, impressed itself
upon them immediately. Every writer
on. Peru haa. commented on the fact
that the headdress of the women, worn
universally, is the black manta. It is
said that it.ls a relic that has come
down from the Incas when they put on
mourning for their great chief Atahu
alpa. Rich and poor have worn that
headdress on the street for centuries.
It waa an established institution.
Well, it is going. About one-half of
the women, some of them In good cir
cumstances evidently, wore mantas on
the streets, but as for the rest well,
a man haa no business to write about
women's hats. All that this man can
aay is that he never saw more das
sling specimens of flower gardens
than those bobbing around over the
graceful drapery with which the Peru
vian women adorn themselves.
Thus does fashion war successfully
upon established custom. The Peru
vian woman loves a beautiful hat just
as much as any other woman on earth.
Moreover, what ia said about her sur
passing beauty Is true. Given great
beauty and the love of a hat on the
part of a woman what chance has a
black manta got? The manta has got
to go and is going. Truly this Is a
world of change and there are those
who will aay, it is one of decay, but

Down the street he dashed with his

"The bitter end!" he shouted wild

"He's going to jump off the bridge!"
shouted one of his pursuers.
"Catch him!" yelled another.
And after a dozen men had tumbled
over one another trying to round him
up they found him calm and smiling.
"What's the matter with you?" they
"Nothing." he responded mildly.
"Well, what about the bitter end?"

Naming the Baby.
The naming of a baby is considered
important even among people whom
we are apt to regard as uncivilized,
And, curiously enough, these very
folk contrive to avoid the arguments
that so often ensue when father and
mother disagree over whether the lit
tie stranger shall be called Jack or
Marmaduke, Priscilla or Jane.
The Mahometan father and mother
each write the choice of a name on a
slip of paper and place both in the
Koran. Whichever slip is drawn first
Is the name given to the child.
A pretty Egyptian custom Is to light
three candles, naming each after a
god or some exalted personage. The
child is called after the candle which
Hindu mothers name their children,
paterfamilias not having a word to
say in the matter. The naming cere
mony usually takes place when the
baby is about 13 days old, and a flower
name Is usually chosen.
Chinese girls are simply numbered
one, two, or three, until they reach
years of discretion, when they are al
lowed to choose a name for them
selves. The boys, however, are given
a temporary name until they are 20,
when pa decides what magnificent ap
pellation they shall rejoice in for the
rest of their lives. N. Y. Weekly.
Ignorance of the Bible.
Biblical allusions, which permeate
our literature, touch no responsive
chord in the majority of college stu
dents nowadays, writes Prof. W. L.
Cross, in Education. Though some of
them are fairly familiar with names
like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Samson,
David and Daniel, very few know any
thing about the lives of these men as
related in the scriptures. Not long
ago, to recall an extreme case, not one

great success from the standpoint
both of the student and of the Instruc
