A Polk count)' man recently invited a
few of his friends to enjoy a keg of beer
at his home. To cool the beer he put it
into the well. When he came to raise it

top of the casing below the split, and the
beer had leaked out into the well. Now

Mrs. Hart, widow of Charles Hart,

When Will Schelp left here a week ago
last Sunday evening a great many of our
people suspected that something was
about to happen, and their suspicions
were confirmed when later in tbe week
cards were received which read thus:
"Mr. William P Schelp. Miss Augusta
E. Nelson, married July twenty-seventh,
nineteen hundred and nine, Chamber
lain, South Dakota. At home after
August twentieth, Platte Center, Ne
braska." This worthy couple need no
introduction in Platte Center, both hav
ing been residents here many years. Mr.
Schelp has been an employee of the
Platte County bank for some time, and
is now assistant cashier. Mis Nelson
has lived here from childhood and has
been a successful school teacher in vari
ous districts in tbe county, including
the village of Platte Center. May they
always be happy.
"Is marriage a failure?" is not the
question that is worrying tbe boarders
at the Clotber hotel in Platte Center,
but "is marriage contagious, epidemic or
infectious?" Less than a year ago there
was quartered at this bostlery a bunch
of congenial bachelors, who were appar
ently contented and happy, nntil one of
-tbe number took a wife nnto himself one
day, and since that day four more have
followed his lead, and now tbe number
left is exceedingly low, and they dodge

PROUD OF THE RECORD MADE4
Reputation of the Austro-American
Doctors now Firmly Established
in Omaha and Vicinity.
Their Unvarying Success Founded
Upon Ability, Knowledge and
.Honesty. Chief of Staff
Coming to our City.
It is a source of great Satisfaction to
those upon whom disease baa laid a
heavy hand to know that if there is the
least possibility of being permanently
enred, the staff of tbeAustro-American
Doctors, by careful examination and
scientific analysis of the blood, xurine
and secretions, can positively determine
that fact. Pursuing the intelligent -and
improved methods which their thorough
education, continued study und hospital
experience points out as the ouly suc
cessful course to follow, their practice is
laid upon a solid foundation. Theory
and experimentation has never entered
their 'treatment of chronic diseases.
They positively know and intelligently
act. This is why they have performed
cures that astonished not only patients
and their friends but have set the regular
practicioner to thinking. There is noth
ing miraculous or superhuman connect
ed with the wonderful cures they have
made. Thia may sound somewhat
strange to those who do not look below
tbe surface. Thorough knowledge and
common sense are $he weapons with
which they conquer diseases. First;
they accurately determine the disease;
second, scientific examination locates it;
knowledge and experience points out the
Their record in Omaha is corrobora
tion of those claims and is an open book
tbat may be read by all. Some of tbe
greatest cures they have performed they
have never mentioned because parties
object to tbe use of their names and the
wishes of such are always respected.
There are thousands in Omaha and.
surrounding country who have reason to
bless tbe day they gave their confidence
into tbe keeping of tbe Auatro American
Doctors. Not a single one of tbeeo
thousands can say tbat they are not en
tirely satisfied with tbe treatment they
have received both in a business way and
professionally. This is n record of
which tbe Austro-American Doctors
have to be proud, and although their
straight-forward methods may have de
prived them of many dollars, they are
more satisfied with tbe success attained.
Air. G. W. Phelps, 1902 N. 2fith St.,
Omaha, an old pioneer of Colfax county
having lived at Schuyler, Nebraska, a
number of yeais, is one the hundreds
who bas reason to thank the Austro
American Doctor for his return to
health. In a letter for publication be
"I was suffering from progressive
paralysis wht-n 1 read your advertise
ment in the paper anil being unable to
work at ray trnde as a carpenter, I de
cided to go up to your institute and see
what you could do for me. After treat
ing with you three weeks, I commenced
work again and have never lost a day
since on account of my ill health. All
my friends kuew that I could hardly
raise my hands to my head and when
they see me working every day, they
can hardly realize tbat any one could re
ceive so much benefit. For two years
before I commenced treatment I was un
able to do hardly any work and was in
poor health as one would be who was
paralyzed as I was.
G. W. Phelps, Aug. 1st, '09.
