On Friday work was begun in excavat

and over there it was bitter cold all thiB
time, and all winter from twelve to eigh

to make very good sleighing.
At a meeting of the musicians of this
city at the city hall Monday evening a
movement wns started for the organiza
tion of a band. Although the movement
has been started do not think that the
musicians alone are going to perfect the
organization and maintain the band.
You can't expect a musician to buy his
instrument and put in time practicing
and then have to take money out of his
own pocket to buy music, uniforms, etc.,
to come out on the street and play an
hour or so two or three times a week for
your amusement unless you give some
thing for his support, so if the citizsnB
want to have a band organized here they
will have to give the members the as
surance of their support before the or
ganization will be perfected.
United Doctors (king to CoUms
Famous Specialists will Make a Short Visit to
the Thurston Hotel on Wednesday, March
16th, and Thursday, March 17th.
Word has been received that the Chief
Consulting physician of the United
Doctors has decided to pay a abort visit
to Oolumbus and while here will stop at
the Thurston hotel, where he will receive
and examine patients.
The United Doctors are the special
ists whose many wonderful cures have
caused comment by the press, pulpit and
public, not only in Nebraska, but all
over the country. The specialists have
founded a new school of medicine which
embraces all of the good points of the
old schools and leaves out the bad.
They nee Allopathic drugs where they
are needed; they nse Homoepathic drugs
where they are needed and Electric
drugs where they are needed and in
some cases they use a conbination of
Electric drugs with Homoepathic or Al
lopathic drugs in the same case. Hence
the name United Doctora they have
united the various "school" "isms" of
medicine to form a perfect system of
The United Doctors have institutes
located in the larger cities of the United
States. Their Omaha Institute is lo
cated on the second floor of the Neville
Mock corner of lGth and Harney Ste.,
The object of the United Doctors in
making this short visit to Columbus is
to secure a few cases in thiB community,
but they want those cases to be only the
most difficult ones. They known that if
they cure a few of the worst cases here
that others will hear of it and go to their
Omaha Institute for treatment. A cured
patient is their best advertisement.
While the doctor is at the Thurston
Hotel for this short visit on;Wednesday
March Kith, and Thursday March 17th,
he will examine all patients free of
charge but will accept only curable
cases for treatment, as it would not be
a good advertisement to treat any case
unless they were sure of a cure. To the
cases selected for treatment a special re
duced rate will he made.
The diseases treated by the United
Doctors are diseases of the Nerves.
Blood, Skin. Heart, Stomach, Kidneys,
and Liver, including Rheumatism, Par
alysis, Neuralgia, loss of Nerve Force,
Goiter, Constipation. Catarrh Epilepsy,
Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Weak Back,
Bloating, Dropsy. Ezcema, Scrofula, and
diseases of women and diseases of men.
The daily papers throughout the coun
try are continually publishing reports of
the wonderful cures that have been
made by the United Doctors. Recently
an account was given in an Omaha paper
of the case of Mrs. M. Bradford who
lives on R. II. No. :, South Omaha, Ne
braska, in which she says in part:
"Ten years ago my health began to fail
and I gradually grew worse until 1 was
confined to my bed half the time with
terrible pains in my stomach and bowels
and violent vomiting. For years I did
not know what a well day was. Could
eat no food that other people ate. Could
get neither sleep nor rest on account of
the terrible suffering. I tried all the
physicians in reach, but only got worse,
until a counsel of my family physicians
decided that I had gall stones, and that
nothing would save my life but an opera
tion, and the surgeons could not promise
that even an operation would relieve or
About one year ago I began to bear of
accounts of the wonderful work of the
United Doctors in gall stones. With

in the face, it seemed that I ought to see

After a lingering illness Cornelius
VanAlIen, aged 70 years, died at his
home, in the east part of town, last Sat
urday afternoon. Mr. VanAlIen was
born in the province of Ontario, Canada,
March. 23, 1840. Here he lived until
1859, when he came to Minnesota, and
in 1800 married Maria Kimble. To this
union were born ten children, seven of
whom survive their father. Edward C.

While the United Doctors will Hot
accept any incurable cases for treat
ment, one should not give up hope sim
ply because their doctor has failed to
help them. It must be remembered that
this system of medicine has quickly
cured many cases, which could not be
helped by other doctors or medicine.
The United Doctors treatment is all
home treatment, so that frequent visits
to our office are not necessary. This
treatment may be used in any home any
where without inconvenience, publicity
or annoyance, and without detaining the
patient from his or her usual occupation.
This wonderful new treatment is what
the doctor is bringing to Columbus. He
will be here but two days, and while
here will receive patients at the Thurs
ton hotel parlors.
Platte county was comparatively new,
Mr. VanAlIen brought his family here
and settled on a farm west of Platte
Center, enduring all the hardships and
privations incident to that time. He
remained on the farm until 1901, when
his advanced age compelled him to seek
lighter work, and he moved to Monroe,
where he has since been a resident.
Funeral services were held Monday at
the Presbyterian church, being conduct
ed by Rev. Wedge, and he was buried
in the New Hope cemetery by the side
of his wife.

MILLIONS OF LIVES LOST.
An Awful Toll Collected by Con
sumption. Many Unnecessary
Deaths from this Disease.
If people could only understand that
systemic catarrh is an internal disease
that external applications csnnot cure,
they would not need to be warned so
often about this malady, which, when
neglected, paves the way oftentimes for
consumption, at the cost of millions of
lives every year. Yet eatarrh may be
cured, if the right treatment is employed.
Catarrh is caused by a general diseasetl
state of the system which leads com
monly to annoying and perhaps serious
local conditions, which may prove a
fertile breeding ground for germs of
consumption. External remedies give
but temporary ease.
The only way to successfully treat
catarrh is by employing a medicine
whioh is absorbed and carried by the
blood to all parts of the system, so that
the mucous membrane or internal lining
of the body is toned up and made capa
ble of resisting the infection of consump
tion and other diseases.
We have a remedy prepared from the
prescription of a physician who for thirty
years studied and made catarrh a spec
ialty, and whose record was a patient
restored to health in every oase where
his treatment was followed as prescribed.
That remedy is Rexall Mucn-Tone. We
are so positive that it will completely
overcome catarrh in all its various forms,
whether acute or chronic, that we prom
ise to return every penny paid us for the
medicine in every case where it fails or
for any reason does not satisfy the user.
We want you to try Rexall Mucu-Tone
on our recommendation and guarantee.
We are right hers where you live, and
you do not contract any obligation or
risk when you try Rexall Mucu-Tone on
our guarantee. We have Rexall Mucu
Tone in two sizes. 50 cents and Sl.oo.
Very often the taking of one 50-cent bot
tle is sufficient to make a marked im
pression upon the case. Of course in
chronic cases a longer treatment is
necessary. The average in such instan
ces is three $1.00 bottles. Remember
you can obtain Rexall Remedies in Co
lumbus only at our store. Pollock Jt Co.

An Anecdote off General Jackson.
General Jackson while on one of his
Journeys to Tennessee about the time
of thenulllflcatiou excitement arrived
at a Virginian village in a very impa
tient state of mind, both with public
affairs and with the state of the roads.
The president was entertained as a
guest at the house of a lady in the vil
lage, and, although he tried to be po
lite, the state of vexation which he
was in affected him visibly.
His hostess at the supper table was
much alarmed to see the general swal
lowing with great rapidity a cup of al
most iMiiliug hot tea.
-Walt wait, general!" exclaimed the
lady. "Let me give you some cold wa
ter." "Xo. thank you, ma'am," said the
general, continuing to drink.
"But I don't see how you can driuk
that toiling hot tea without scalding
"Xo wonder you can't, ma'am," said
Jackson. "1 am scalding myself."
"But. sir, why do you"
"Good gracious, ma'am r exclaimed
the general. "Don't you see that I
want to scald myself?"
The lady refrained from making any
further suggestions as to her distin
guished guest's comfort.
Mercury Laden Swords.
Inserting running mercury in the
backs of swords was a comparatively
common practice among the Italian.
French and Spanish sworduiakers of
the sixteenth and seventeenth centu
ries, but It was more of a fancy than
anything else, for It never came into
general use. It was not, of course,
used for rapiers or the lighter kind of
swords, but for the heavier cutting
swords. The method was to cast the
blade rather broader at the back than
usual, with a hollow running down it.
This was half filled with quicksilver
and sealed up. The idea was that when
a blow was struck with such a sword
the quicksilver would fly to the point
and so increase the weight of the
blow. This theoretical advantage, how
ever, did not at all counterbalance the
general clumsiness of the weapon and
its unhandiness In guarding, and so
the mercurial swords, as they were
called, from which their Ingenious in
ventor hoped so much, were rather
military curiosities than practical sue-
