from the scenes of this life. Although
very old and feeble, Doxey was appar

of his death reached St. Edward late

It will be recorded that the first frost

The farmer who will spend one dol
lar and fifty cents an acre in the con-
Mxuctionof a modern highway will im
mediately realize an increase from ten
to twenty-five dollars an acre to the
value of his laud, in addition to the
great saving in the coBt of transporta
tion, and the value of having nn acces

Until farmers recognize the difference
between a wise business investment of
that kind and the extreme folly of pay

One day last week, Geo. Grndon and
Harry McOonnell each got a letter from
the post-office, both mailed from some
town in Colorado, the imprint of the
mailing stamp being so dim ns to be un
readable. Both letters contained a
scrap of newspaper enclosing a twenty
dollar bill and n five dollar bill. There
was not a scratch of writing to indicate
who the sender was, and neither of the
recipients have the least clue as to their
identity. Their exact similarity in
every respect, except the handwriting
which was evidently disguised, would
indicate that the same person sent both.

A large acreage of winter wheat has
been put in in this vicinity this season.
The weather was favorable for early

THE DOCTORS QUESTION.
Much Sickness Due to Bowel Dis
orders. The doctor's first question when con
sulted by a patient is, "Are your bowels
regular?" He knows that 98 per cent of
illness is attended with inactive bowels
and torbid liver, and that this condition
must be removed gently and thoroughly
before health can be restored.
Rexall Orderlies are a positive, pleas
ant and safe remedy for constipation and
bowel disorders in general. We are so
certain of their great curative value that
we promise to return the purchaser's
money in every case when they fail to
produce entire satisfaction.
Rexall Orderlies arc oaten like candy,
they act quietly, and have a soothing,
strengthening, healing influence on the
entire intestinal tract. They do not
purge, gripe, cause nausea, flatulence,
excessive loosness, diarrhoea or other
annoying effect. They are especially
good for children, weak persons or old
folks. Two sizes, 25o and 10c Sold

From the Times.
A writer in the Lincoln Journal, who
recently visited Nance county, says:
Nance county was once the PawBes
Indian reservation, aad every once in
awhile some of the old burying places in
the vicinity of Genoa are uncovered.
Fallerton is located on a part of the old
reservation. Its first resident was Ran
dall Fuller, for whom the town was
named. Way back in 187G Fuller lived
ia a little aback on the to wnaite. A abort
distance above town lies the farm where
Alfred Bixby. father of the Journal poet
philosopher, A. L. Bixby, located when
he came down from Minnesota in search
of a climate that included more than
three months of good weather. "Biz"
helped break the greatest part of the
farm land, and later edited a paper in
the town. He also won the title of
"Doc." through his essaying to heal the
physical ills of bis fellows. A heartless
board of health ended his usefulness in
that line by asking him bothersome
questions One of the little tales of
interest the visitor hears is how a Penn
sylvania man got rich through trouble
that came upon him at home. He was
mixed up in tho star route scandals of
many years ago, nobody-knew just bow,
aad came west until things blew over.
He had money and be invested it in
Nance county lands when the govern
ment was selling them for a song after
the Indians had been moved away. He
purchased about five thousand acres for
910,000, and although he long since died
back in his old home, whither be return
ed a short time after his trip to Ne
braska, his heirs still own the lands.
Their present worth is in the neighbor
hood or $400,000. Along the south side
of the Loup valley is a lot of bad land
or at least it was so considered by the
first settlers, being sandy. On this Jim
North, of Oolumbus, years ago, located
about twenty-five families of Polanders.
They extracted much riches from the
soil, living very frugally and working
hard. They have made so much money
and have increased so greatly in num
bers that they crossed the valley and are
buying the $90 an acre lands north and
west of Genoa.

CASTE IN THE ARMY.
Civilians Find It Difficult to Under
stand Military Discipline.
One thing not commonly understood
among civilians is the completeness of
the barrier which divides army offi
cers from the soldiers, or, as they are
more generally called, the "men." It
Is always vastly amusing to those fa
miliar with the service to observe the
errors in this respect frequently made
by the novelist and the playwright
Personal qualifications have nothing
whatever to do with the matter. A
soldier may be a gentleman who has
enlisted with the purpose of obtaining
a commission, yet there can be be
tween him and bis officers no social
intercourse of any sort, and severe
penalties would be inflicted upon the
officer who would attempt to disregard
.It might seem that this enforcement
of a caste sense would result in much
bard feeling on the side of the men.
Such, however. Is not actually the
case. It Istaken for granted and rec
ognized as conducive to "good order
and military discipline." It Is a mili
tary regulation like any other and im
plies no disgrace. Directly a soldier's
enlistment is out or directly he rises

EVADING THE LAW.
The Pictures of Flying Birds In a Me
According to one of the tenets of the
Mohammedan religion. It is a sin to
make a picture of any living thing
The elaborate decorations of the pal
aces and mosques of the east are al
most exclusively made up of ingenious
ly interlaced geometric designs, ara
besques or flowers, intermixed with
sentences of tho Koran.
There is a belief among Mussulmans
that at the day of Judgment Allah will
demand that the artist who has made,
the image of a living thing shall endow
that image with life and that, falling
to do this, the artist will be sent to
perdition for his sin.
A gentleman who visited a mosque
in Algiers found that the tiles with
which the building Is decorated, which
are very old and very beautiful, are
adorned with flights of birds. He ex
pressed surprise at this and asked if
the command against such representa
tion were a modern edict.
"Oh, no," answered the pious Alge
rian to whom bo addressed the ques
tion. "These are not pictures of liv
"But they are painted as if flying
across the tiles." the other said In
"Yes," the Mussulman replied, "but
do yon not see that about the neck of
each there Is a fine black line? That Is
to show that the artist painted only
dead birds, and the command of the
Koran is not violated."
The Astonishing Part.
Lord Townsbena at the battle of
Dettengen was standing quite near a
drummer boy whose bruins were dash
ed out by a cannon ball. Ills lordship
g-.i7.ed on the horrible sectacle Tor
some moments in silence.
At last an old idlk-er spoke up and
said: "Why isymir lordship surprised':
Such things must happen in war '
"1 know It.' was the reply, "but
what astonishes me is that a boy with
so much brains should be here at all."
A Bright Outlook.
"Do you er do you think. Miss
Doblelgb. that you will be er-engag-ed
next Thursday evening?" asked
Tompy very bashfully.
"Well, really. Mr. Tompy." replied
Ethel. "I don't know, but If you can
get up spunk enough between now and
then to do your share I think there's a
fair prospect that I shall be."
And Tompy did.- Harper's Weekly.
