It seems to bo a general complaint by

attention to that class of merchandise.
The above remark to some extent Is true ,

different light this week , as their show
Window on this class of goods will convince
i you that such Is the case.
No one Interested In this line can afford to
tnlsa seeing window display , and most of all
the extremely low prices. This sale of

this week only , and will bo one of the most

Stiles' Will Attracting Attention.

Her 1'ropcrtj to Mn. Z.
A. Itoblinon.
A suit Is , now being tried In the federal
court In Chicago to set aside the will of
Mrs. Sybil C. Stiles , who died some years
ago In this city. The case has considerable
local Interest from the fact that Mrs. Stiles
was n sister of Mrs. 0. A. Robinson and
Mrs. W. C. James uf this city. She was the
widow ot a former Baard of Trade operator
and the mother of Charles Stiles , whose
sensational killing at the hands of Theresa
Sturlata attracted widespread newspaper
comment a few years ago. The death of
her son , It Is claimed , somewhat unsettled
Mrs. Stiles' mind and enfeebled her consti
tution , and she died shortly after.
During her last Illness Mrs. Hoblnson went
to Chicago to nurse the unfortunate lady.
Whllo she was there Airs. Stiles made her
will , In which she left the former $5,000 In
cash and provided for her own two sons ,
Alexander C. Stiles of Oak Park and Kugeno
B. Stiles of Ulxoii , III. , by giving them
$100 apleco each month during their lifetime ,
with the provision that upon their death
the property from which this Income was
derived should go to Mrs. Stiles' living heirs.
After nursing Mrs. Stiles for a few weeks
In Chlcugo Mrs. Robinson brought her to
her home * In this city and kept her there
until her death occurred , shortly after. Just
before death Mrs. Stiles added a codicil to
her will , In which she bequeathed to Mrs.
Robinson all her personal property , Including
diamonds , jewelry , clothing , and some house
hold furniture , the entire value of which was
about $2,000. ,
This will the two sons of the deceased
are now seeking to have set aside on the
ground that Mrs. Stiles was unduly In
fluenced by Mrs. Robinson. They are not
satisfied with having n stipulated amount
each month , but want the principal to do
with as they see fit. They allege that
among the delusions to which their mother
was subject was that she frequently com
municated with and received letters from
her dead son , Charles. She also thought
that her other sons were. In a conspiracy to
kill her.
The value of the Stiles property at the
time of her death was estimated at $100,000 ,
hut In the hands of the administrator It Is
said to have depreciated so that It finally
amounted to less than one-third that sum.
Before her death Mrs. Stiles refused an
offer of $75 an acre for a C40 aqre farm Just
out of IMxon , III. , and the farm afterward
sold for about $35 per acre.
A \Vu\erley Answer.
Why should a sewing machine costing
$10.00 at the factory retail for $53.00 ?
Why should a bicycle costing $15.00 retail
for $123.00 ?
Why should a buyer. pay $125.00 for n
wheel In Council Bluffs when dealers In
other towns sell the same wheel for $90.09 ?
There are forty-one Waverleys being ridden
In Council Bluffs , and every one has been
bought with money and not two-thirds paid
for with an old wheel , as has been the case
with three-fourths of the $125.00 wheels sold
here this year. Reader , If you do not buy
for money you hold the bag for the man who
got two prices for his old wheel. See ? A
$1,000,000 corporation guarantees the Waver-
ley equal to any wheel made , and we see
that guaranty made good. Of the thirteen
riders mentioned in yesterday's Bee as buyIng -
Ing $125.00 whcclii.twa got wheels at cost , nlno
traded In old wheels at big prices , one paid
over half In Jewelry and one Is a son of
the boss. Now you pay cash and hold the
bag and keep the boom going. Weights of

The announcement 'of the appointment of
W. S. Lewis of Glenwood to the vacant po
sition on the bench ot thin district came as
a surprise to the lawyers of Council Bluffs
and Shelby , who were particularly Interested
In securing the appointment of Green of Shel
by. It now transpires that Green's support
ers had read the handwriting on the wall
and had seen that their only hope lay In
Inducing the governor to postpone the ap
pointment and allow a convention of the
voters of the district to decide It. They did
their best , but the governor refused to wait
for them to finish their plans and made the
appointment on his own motion.
Wlnfleld Scott Lewis , the new Judge ,
stands In the front ranks of the attorneys of
Glenwood , where he has been practicing law
for the last twenty years. All his early life
was spent In Malvcrn and vicinity. In 1S74
he graduated from the law department of
the Iowa State university along with Gov
ernor Jackson , and this fact undoubtedly
had some weight In bringing the governor
to his decision. Ho spent one term In the
Iowa' house of representatives. Ho has n
good legal mind , his character Is unlm-
pcachablo , and he Is regarded as ono In every
way IK to occupy the position so ably filled
by Judge Deemer.

The Knights of Labor at their meeting last
evening passed a resolution which Is aimed
to Increase the amount of poll tax collected
and spend It In n way to benefit the laboring
classes. The following Is the text of the
resolution : "Resolved , by local assembly No.
1,300 , Knights of Labor , of Council Bluffs ,
that , In view of the scarcity of employment
In our city , wo recommend that the city
council take measures to provide a labor em
ployment bureau at the city building. Where
poll tax collector's notices may be deposlte.l
with the amount of the tax , and the unem
ployed labor of the city be thereby given em
ployment on an equitable basis. "
The plan , as stated by ono of the members
after the meeting , Is expected to Increase the
amount of taxes collected by giving every
man who expects to get employment in this
way a personal Interest In seeing that every
other man pays his poll tax. The citizens
will also be enabled to kill two birds with
one stone. If charitably Inclined , and furnish

A great many playgoers are under the Im
pression that the most meritorious shows ore
played In the beginning and middle of the
season , and that the cheaper clement are
"run In" at about the closing days. This Is
decidedly wrong , however , for the next Im
portant event of the year will be the appear
ance of the Calhoun Opera company at the
Fifteenth Street theater for ono week , com
mencing Sunday matinee , May 13. In the
company are forty-five artists , Including a
wonderfully clever orchestra. They will
bo seen In a brilliant repertoire of comic
operas , produced on a magnificent scale , the
costumes being the most gorgeous seen In
comic opera , and every attention will bo lav
ished upon the productions. Notwithstand
ing the enormous expense attached , the reg
ular house prices will prevail.
If there Is ono event this season
that will stand out In bolder relief than all
others , It will undoubtedly be found In the
engagement of the romantic actor , Alexander
Salvlnl , which begins at Boyd'a May J4 , 15
and 1C. U Is not alone that it brings In
Its train brilliant examples of what from an
nrtlbtlo standpoint the American stage can
evolve , but the school of drama for which
this organization Is uniquely famous has no
worthy exponent outside of Us own arena ,
and hasn't had for a generation or more.
The repertoire that Mr. Salvlnl will pre
sent here | s as follows ; Monday evening ,
"The Three Guardsmen ; " Tuesday evening ,
"Ruy Bias , " and Wednesday evening his new
play , "Zamar. " The sale of Heats will open
tomorrow morning at 0 o'clock , ' and , Judging
from the number ot Inquiries that have been
made about the engagement , will doubtless
be very largo.

the Young Men's ChrlstjKn' association last
evening was ono of the moil larftMynttended
and enjoyable events thai "as taken place at
the Young Men's Christian association quar
ters this year. The t brilliantly lighted
rooms were thronged with guests , and n
varied and pleasing program of entertain
ment passed the hours until nearly mid
The rooms had been attractively arrayed
with flowers and plants by a floral commit
tee ot the young lady friends of the associa
tion and were attractive Indued with the
bright colors of the flowers contrasted with
the new furniture and fresh draperies that
replaced those destroyed by the rcccnfire. .
The Young Men's Christian association or
chestra , under the leadership of Mr. Thomas
J. Penncll , wan stationed In ono ot the al
coves , and during the social p.trt of the even
ing the music added not a tlttlo to the pleas
ure of the occasion.
Tlio guests consisted nf the members of
nearly all of the young people's religious
societies of the city. Among those repre
sented were. The Young People's Society
of Christian Endeavor , the Baptist union ,
Epworth league , Daughters of Rebokah and
the Brotherhood of St. Andrew. The visi
tors were met In the hall by the members
of the reception committee and conducted
into the reception rooms and library , where
the first hour of iho evening was enjoyably
passed In general conversation and making
new acquaintances. Refreshments of lemon
ade and wafers \\cro served In the lecture
room , and then the guests repaired to the
gymnasium , where an excellent program of
athletic exercises was executed under the
supervision of Physical Director Cook.
The main program was given In the con
ceit hall , where Hon. Charles A. Goss called
the assemblage to order at 9:30 : o'clock.
Ho welcomed the guests In an appropriate
speech , after which a number of brief ad
dresses were made by representatives of the
various societies represented , In which they
expressed their appreciation of the hospi
tality of the association and their desire to
assume a closer relationship In their mutual
work. A number ot musical selections were
Interspersed with the speeches. Prominent
among thobc were the numbers rendered by
the Mozart quartet , which found exceptional
'favor with the audience. The young men
sang exceedingly well , and Mr. C. C. Smith's
baritone solo was .equally well received.

Dr. Savllle Is highly indignant at the
action of the city council In refusing to
adopt his suggestion In regard to nn am
bulance. He claims that this parsimony
has been the cause of a great additional
danger to the city of a smallpox contagion.
"At the tlmo I made my recommendation , "
said he , "I could have procured an am
bulance from Fort Sidney for a very small
sum. The ambulance had been condemned
by the government , bub the quartermaster
assured me that with some slight repairs
It could bo put In as good condition as now.
"Another lesson which Is taught by this
case Is the necessity of a detention hospital.
1 Included this recommendation with my
communication with regard to the ambu
lance , but It was sidetracked In the same
way. In this case \\c had a patient who
exhibited a number uf very suspicious
symptoms. At the tliio | of my first visit
no one could say for certain whether It was
smallpox or not. ft "there had b'.cn a
detention hospital we "would have taken him
there at once and most of the danger of
contagion would havc'bpen averted. As" It
was we had no recourse hut to leave him
where he was until the disease developed.
Wo could not take a Imfii to the pest hous :
until there was absolutely no doubt but
that he had Bmallpdx'.1 ' If there had been
even an . am.bulancowo could h ve' taken
him away early jnstead of leaving him at
his lodgings until. yesterday morning , as we
were 'forced to do. 'All this delay Is In
the highest degree dangerous and Is bound
to occur as. often as we have a similar
case. As smallpox cases usually cost the
city several hundred dollars each I cannot
understand" " the parlsmony of the council
from a financial standpoint , to say nothing
of the demands of humanity. "

If you are starving It Is all the same
whether you starve because you cannot get
food to cat or because yon cannot digest
what yon do eat. The effects nro the same.
The results are the same.
There Is n certain difference ; In this \\ay :
The poor man If ho gets enough food will
soon get fat. The Invalid , whatever food
he may cat , cannot gel fat , unless he feeds
on artificially digested food.
Since Paskol.i , the pre-dlgcttcd food , has
been prepared , people have lapldly been
growing fatter. Before Paskola there was
nothing that could bo done to cure dyspep
sia. It was the bane of the doctors. Drugs
could do nothing , Cod liver oil made It
worse , Dyspeptics , nnacmlcs , consump
tives and all people who were thin and
pale , who In fact were starving amidst
plenty , were thought Incurable.
Today It Is different. Wo have Paskola.
We knotf that P.tskola , being pro-digested ,
will euro starving Invalids. It will make
thin people fat. U will make pale people
rosy. H will make weak people strong.
Paskola does this because It Is a food.
Because It Is n food thai will toed you
whether you can digest other food or not.
The starches are the fatlenlng foods. Wo
know this because doctors forbid starchy
food to people who are growing too fat.
The chief meilt In Paskola Is that It Is a
pro-digested food. Another that It Is , i
starchy food. Another that It helps you
to digest what other food you may cat.
The chief good that Paskula can do Is to
make all thin people grow fat. Another
lo relieve the pangs of Indigestion. An
other lo put fresh life In your veins and
make you feel younger and stronger.
If Paskola were a medicine It would do
jou no permanent good at all. It Is not a
medicine ; It Is n food. We need food every
day of our lives. Wo do not need medi
Just see what Paskola has done for others ;
VALPARAISO , Iml. , April H , 1801.
The Pre-Dlgcsted Food Co. , 30 Kendo St. ,
York Gentlemen : Your letter of April 3
at hand. Regarding my symptoms before I
used Packola , I was very weak ; I could not
digest anything ; I tried everything to gain
strenglh , bill failed. My doctor advised
mo lo use Paskola , and I am satisfied It Is
Ihe only thing for a weak stomach. I have
gained two pounds a week.
My only trouble now Is constipation , and
I have been expecting those tablets every
day. If my bowels would work right I am
sure I would be happy.
My liver Is very bad at times and I get
bilious. There Is nothing that helps Indi
gestion like Paskola. I have tried about
twelve doctors and have been suffering more
than four years.
I will say that I have been so weak that I
could' ' work only about two days In a week.
For nearly three years I spent all.I had for
doctoring and had given up hope. I am
sure Paskola will restore me. Trusting to
hear from you very early , yours truly ,
BRIDGETON , N. J. , April 11 , 1891.
The Pre-Dlgested Food Co. , 30 Reade St. ,
New York Gentlemen : Through the advice
of friends I decided to try your Paskola for
my daughter , who has been fn very poor
health for several months past from loss ot
appetite and general debility.
She had wasted away In flesh and at the
time she began taking Paskola weighed 112
pounds , and after two weeks' treatment
gained eight pounds. Shu } : gaining In
health and strength dally , with Increasing
appetite for the most hearty food that was
repugnanl lo her before lakmg Paskola.
As a flesh-forming food I think It far
superior to cod liver oil or other similar
preparations , and am more than gratified
with the results. WILLIAM T. ROSS.
Paskola may be obtained of any reputable
druggist. A pamphlet on food and diges
