Trustees Drstroy tlia Daiii ,
The Lewis township trustees have effectu
ally put an end to the work of filling up
Manawa with water by destroying the dam
which wai put In across Moiqulto creek and ]
forbidding Messrs. Heed and Odell repairing
It. The water was somewhat low at the be
ginning ot to * teuton , on account ot the low
water In the river , and to remedy this a dam
was built. By Its aid the water was caused
to rt o quite rapidly , and In a few days the
depth had Increased nearly a foot. About
this tlmo come of the farmers began to raise
a kick , on the ground that the overflow dam
aged their farms. They" called upon the
township trustees , who , after looking the
/round over , decided that the dam must be
destroyed. They acted accordingly , and the
Manawa people had tu bo satisfied with what
water they had on hand , which was about
eight Inches lem than what they would have
liked , although the deficiency Is not great
enough to hurt the boating and bathing.

they were leading behind the buggy came
alongside and became tangled up In the
wheels. It finally got Its fore feet in the
tmggy , and Geise tried to drive It back by
hitting It with the whip. But that only
added to their sorrow , for the horse In front
became frightened and broke loose from
the buggy. Both men were thrown out , bul
not seriously hurt. They owe their lives prob
ably to the fact that they were thrown out ,
for the buggy was literary smashed to smith

the men had his foot stepped on by one ol
the horses , and both horses had their legs

A resolution was passed Introducing the
tnte senatorial candidate from this district
nd representative from this county to use
11 honorable means to procure the passage
y the next assembly of the resubmlsslon
esolutlon Introduced In the last session by
Ion. F. Cooper. This was done for fear the
allure to return the latter would be con-
Idercd an Indication that Montgomery
ounty was growing cold on prohlblton. An
ndeavor to Instruct delegates to the sen-
torlal convention failed , nnd this probably
Illed an attempt to instruct for governor.
J. M. Junkln of Hed'Oak Is the only can-
Idate so for announced for state senator ,
nd It Is not at all probable ho will meet
vlth any opposition. The nominee for treas-
irer Is from Vllllsca , and he was chcst'ii
n the twenty-second ballot , after a hard
ight. This will bo the first time for seven-
ceil years that the second city In size of the
ounty has been given n nomination for a
Dimty office by the republican conventions ,
Ithough it Is strongly republican , and has
icon In the habit of paying Its own campaign
xpenses nnd Increasing Its majorities year
ifter year.
The delegation to the state convention
nominally stands nine for Drake , three for
larlan nnd one for Harsh. In case of a
trong contest It can be depended on as polld
or Drake , but leaning far toward Harlan.v
ohn S. Anderson of Stanton was nominated
or auditor to fill the vacancy caused by the'
ecent death of Auditor Peterson.
The convention was harmonious and en-
huslastlc and apparently not much Inclined
o favor free coinage of sliver. Hon. Smith
McPherson , the chairman , was frequently
applauded when In his speecahs he took oc
casion to score Coin's vagaries and Indl-
ectly put In a ward for honest bimetallism.

father and mother , Mr. and Mrs. A. T.
Battreal , give these facts :
"A long time ngo we began to notice that
a slow catanh was getting hold ot our
daughter's system. It was not merely a
little trouble In her nose and throat , but It
affected her In many ways so seriously a *
to rob her of health entirely. The disease-
blocked her nose with tumors and fprend
to her eyt-s so shu could hardly see to read
at all. Her voice beennio hoarse nnd hep
throat was constantly sore. Later on her
hearing began to fall ; In fact , hardly any
sense soemud to escape. After eating she
was subject to headache nnd Indigestion ,
nnd she was steadily growing weak and
losing llesh. A large part ot the Urn ?
terrible headaches were present , which took
he.- strength and vitality and made her
almost an Invalid ,
"Slnco Ir. Shepard had her cnso In
charge she 1ms got rid ot all these troubles.
This was two years ago , and no symptom
ot the old condition has returned. Our
daughter's case Is proof to us that the
methods ot Drs , Copeland and Shepard nre. V , J
capable ot curing people In such a way
that they STAY cured. Her eyesight is
perfect ; her hearing Is nlso perfect. She
Is strongnnd hearty , free from pain , and
wo can gladly state that her health Is re
stored. Our experience with Dr. Shepard
Is in every way satisfactory , and through
tills trying case he was successful at every
point. "
