A Nemaha county farmer who keeps
his eyes open tells the Auburn Republi
can that he has found a substitute for
high priced corn. He 6ays: "The
cheapest way to make pork is to raise
rutabagas aud feed them in connection
with a little clover to the hogs. Three
bushels of corn with this feed will take
the hog through the winter all right. It
makes good pork, too, and at a low

The Primrose Record says the had a
"waist and arm social" at the preacher's
house. We don't know what the mod

that combination wasn't considered
proper for public entertainments when
' we were yonng.
Quite a delegation from St Edward

Robert B. Sutton was etricken with
paralsis about 8 p. m. Dec. 2G, 1909, nnd
was called away by death Jan. 8, 1910, a
little less than two weeks later. Every
thing that skill or loving hands could do
was done in a vain effort to save him,
but tho sands in the Hour Glass of life
refused to ilow. The reaper stood ready
to cut the ripened grain. He was con
scious only a part of the time and during
those times spoke of his approaching
death. Mr. Sutton was born in Glosada,
Orange County, New York, July 4. 3837.
He was married to Sarah A. Chapman
Dec. 4, 1859, having passed fifty years of
wedded life together Dec. 4, 1909. One
son William M. was born to this union

moved with his family to Nebraska in
Jan. 1889, and has since resided in or
about Monroe. He enlisted as a private

tremely cold and stormy during her stay
Henry Dyke marketed eight hogs in
Platte Center Monday that brought him
a little over $241.00 $30,20 cents apeice.
That's going some, when it takes a good
cow to bring as much money as a hog
and cows are not on the cheap list either.
D. E. Donohne attended the hone
Bale at Columbus last Thursday, and
purchased a fine matched team, paying,
so we are informed, $450 for them. He
started to lead them home behind his
buggy and before he was out of the city
one of them fell on the slippery street
and broke its hip. The animal was left
in the care of veterinary surgeons, but it
is doubtful if it recovers.
George and John Webster started for
Oklahoma Monday to assist Dick Brans
and Andrew Kamm pack np their effects
and move back to Nebraska. BrunB and
Kamm went to Oklahoma two years ago,
but have evidently not made a success
of farming down there, else they would
rot return to Nebraska so soon. We
understand that Kamm has rented the
Oronin farm and Brans has rented a farm
north of Monroe.
The hearts of Mr. and Mrs. Henry
Schumacher were glast Thursday night
when .their son Henry arrived for an ex
tended visit, after the expiration of his
four year term in the U. S. Navy.
Henry Schumacher, jr., is the youngest
child in the family and his home-coming
occasioned genuine joy among his many
relatives and friends at this place. He
left here some four years ago to join the
navy, and the thorough training recei
ved as one of Uncle Sam's blue jackets
developed him into a magnificant speci
men of physical manhood, and withal he
bears the manners and character of a
perfect gentleman. In his travels to all
zones and ports of the world he has ac
quired valuable experience of great ed
ucational value. He took a course in
electricity while in the service of the
government and was doing duty as elec
trician on the battleship Virginia when
his time expired. Mr. Schamacker has
the privege to re-enlist within four
months without loosing his pay during
his vacation of four months, and with in

The many friends of Mrs. Gas Marek
in Humperey, were greatly sur
prised and saddened Monday eve
ning when they heard of the death of
that estimable lady at her home in Os
mond. Mrs. Marek was formerly Miss
Liddie Lewis, a sister of Robert Lewis
and made her home here several years
ago. The cause of her death was a sev
ere fall she sustained Monday morning,
on un icy sidewalk, causing a rupture.
An operation was immediately decided
upon Monday afternoon to reduce
the rupture, but her case was so
veiy serious, arrangements were made
to take her to an Omaha hospital the
next day to have the operation perform
ed by expert hands. She gradually be
came worse however, and finally passed
away Monday evening. The funeral
was held at Osmond yesterday and was
attended by all the members of the fam
ily, except her parents who live in Col
umbus and were both unable to be oat,
and a large crowd of sympathizing
friends. Mrs. Marek leaves her husband
and an adopted daughter twelve years of
age whom she had raised from babyhood
to hold in tender memory a devoted and
loving wife and mother.

Last Friday at the preliminary trial
Walter Ralston and Harry Brown were
bound over to appear in district court at
the February term to answer the charge
of holding up and robbing Frank Verba

north of town. Neither of them has yet
furnished bond which was placed at
$1,000, and both are in jail.
Mr. Engene Corson spent Sunday
night in Schuyler, being on his way
from Silver Creek to Rogers with his
live stock. Mr. Corson will be remem
bered by many as an old resident of
Colfax county, having left here some
eleven years ago. He thought the
weather too dangerous to ship his live
stock and the distance was not too far to
drive them overland. He is going to
reside on the Wheeler farm near Rogers.
Mr. Corson lived in Colfax county when
the nearest railroad was Iowa City, Iowa,
his father moving here with the family
in 1857. Mr. Eugene Corson's father,
R. W. Corson, was the first county
treasurer of Colfax ounty and helped to
organize theoriginal county.
The first official act of Sheriff Kunkle
was to go to Lincoln and bring Gerald
Eubik back to Schuyler for forgery.
About three years ago Kubik, who is a
young man, asked for the loan of $150
from the bank of F. Fonda. He waB
told he could have it if his mother signed
the note. He was given a note to take
to his mother to sign and' later returned
with his mother's name. A year later
when the note was presented for pay
ment Mrs. Kubik claimed to have not
signed it, so the bank swore out a war
rant for him which has been in the hands
of the sheriff for a long time but he
seemed unable to locate yonng Kubik.
When Sheriff Kunkle took the office Jan.
6th he begins a pearch for young Kubik
and located him in Lincoln. He wired
the authorities there to arrest and hold
him. The sheriff went dow n and return
ed Monday evening with the prisoner
who is now in the county jail.

A new farmers elevator is now talked
of for Bellwood. A meeting was held
Saturday afternoon, at which time a
committe was appointed to secure the
services of an organizer.
The American apple at its best has
long been recognized as one of the most
healthful and appetizing of fruits. It
now has a new claim to public favor.
An Iowa physician, a prominent mem
ber of the National Medical society, al
leges that apple eating cures the desire
for strong drink.
When a western Nebraska editor was
told of a lady in his town who kneaded
bread with her gloves on. he came back
in this truthful wise: "This indeed
may be somewhat peculiar, but there
are others. The editor of this paper
needs bread with his shoes on. He also
needs bread with his pants on, and un
less some of the deliquent subscribers to
this Old Rag of freedom poy up before
long, he will need bread without a blamed
thing on and Nebraska is no Garden of
Eden in the winter time, either."

heads and long hair hanging down over

body wants them at nny price. Men
don't employ them and sensible girls

A song and dnnce comedian waa
working in a cheap vaudeville house
where a performance was given hour
ly. The tired performer had made
nine appearances nnd had fallen asleep
on his trunk when the manager poked
him in the ribs nnd said:
"Hey, you wake up! It's time for
you to go on .-inin.
"Say." retorted the performer. "I
can't go on again. What do you take

A STARTLING STATEMENT.
New York Medical Authorities
Claim Dyspepsia to be aPre-Dis-posing
Cause of Consumption.
The post mortem statistics of the big
New York hospitals shows that some
cases of consumption are due, at least
indirectly, to unchecked dyspepsia, es
pecially when the victim was predis
posed to tuberculosis
Dyspepsia wears out the body and
brain. The weakened, irritable stom
ach being unable to digest food, the
body does not receive the required
nourishment, and the victim becomes
thin, weak and haggard. As a result,
the body becomes a fertile field in which
the germs of disease may lodge and
Theiefore, the person who permits
dyspepsia to progress unhindered is
guilty of contributing towards the de
velopment of one of the most insidious
and fatal diseases known to mankind.
Dyspepsia may be completely eradicat
ed if properly treated. We sell a re
medy that we positively guarantee will
completely relieve indigestion or dyspep
sia, or the medicine used during the trial
will cost the user nothing.
This remedy has been named Rexall
Dyspepsia tablets. Certainly no offer

be proof positive that liexall Dyspepsia
