C , K , GhUEs of Marshall , Mich. , has pre- ( xirc'd a new kind of catarrh cure that Is meriting Iho attention of physicians and doing wonders in the way of curing catarrn. It la In tablet form , dry anil taken Internally. This plan of treating catarrh Is somewhat different from the widely advertised In halants , douches , snulllers and other reme dies for local application. It Is claimed by all well-informed phyal- clans that catvirrh means a disturbed bodily temperature , producing Inflammation In Hie dcllcato natal membranes , and becomes chronlu as the rruilt-of a succession of colds. The only \\uy u > reduce this Inflammation and restore the membranes to Average bodily heat Is to treat the nervous Ejstem con- trollng bodily temperature. The success of Gauss Tablets 's ' thus far so surprising that It a wonder the plan was not tried years ago. 1'hyslclans have all along contended .tint constitutional treatment was the only way to cure catarrh , but the absence of ; ui exact epeclllo pievonied practical demonstration of the theory. Now that liio specific has been found considerable progrccs Is reported In curing a disease- which has heretofore- - Uted the best medical talent.

LARGE INCREASE IN STOCK RECEIPTS PnokerN llriuieli Out utiil Largely In crease IIii' Cannc-Ity of Their 'HcNiiectlve ' Tin 11 IK 1'roNiiceln for ComluK Year. The past year has witnessed a very grati fying Improvement in the volume of busi ness doing at the South Omaha packing houses. South Omaha as a packing center has made rapid strides and has experienced some phenomenally prosperous years , but none equal to 1897 , 'though the record ot might compare favor some previous years ably. In 1894 there were phenomenally heavy marketings of stock and the business ot the packing houses was pushed way beyond anything previously reached at this poln , but it dropped In 1S95 to the lowest point of the present decade , or elnco the first few years after the establishment of the market. The heavy decline of business was due to natural causes , -which ) had their influence In every ether department ot man ufacturing or commerce and which made 1895 a year to 'be ' remembered. With the advorvt of 1890 there was some Improvement noticeable , but It was unimportant and the total volume of business was small aa com pared with previous years. The coming ol 1897 ushered In better Units for the packing Industries of the whole country , More people ple were securing employment and hence coming Into a | x > altlon to be consumers of meats , thus creating an Increased demon a for packing house products. During the 'past year there has been an ac tive business nnd packers have been more concerned as to the supply of live stock than they have regarding the marketing of the product. In order to keep pace wJth the demand South Omaha packers have been forced to send buyers Into other markets to patch out the supply of packers ami keep Bholr hotircs running to the required ca pacity. At'tho ' same time the active demand has kent prices on stock up to a point which has Induced shippers from a wider extent of territory to come to this market , Large Increases In receipts from all the western states are noted consequent upon the urgent demand for cattle at this point and to the enterprise of Interested parties In securing shipments. It Is , however , the figures that tell the story after all , and they show that only twlco In the h IN lory of the yards have as many cattle been slaughtered as during 1897 , and never ns m'any hpgu or sheep , and taking all kinds of stock ( together 1897 way by all oJds the heaviest year ever experi enced by the packers at this point.

Among fie packing houses the most extensive Im provement : ! Imvo been inaJo at the Cudahy plant , where at loat : 160,000 has been ex pended durliig the last three months In alter ations ami extensions. The new sausage factory , which la now under roof , cost $20,000 , excluelvo ot Iho onacblaery which la to lie placed In 'It ' wiien it Is completed.

Many improvements have been made at the soap factory cad new machinery recently pur chased Is now being placed In this big ten- story building , ftlany other improvements Oiave been made during the year , miming trie cost way up Into the thousancs. In onnectln with improvements to be made as soon as the weather will permit the Cudahys have planned fc'no erection of a largo two-story brick stable , wnich will cost at least $10,009. In this stable will be stalls for forty-flvo horses cud room for as many wagcns. A largo power building and ex tensive uiddltlons to tie glycerine and toap factories have been planned and work on these will commence early In the spring.

It la tiio intention of the Cudahy campany to expend something like $100,000 during the spring And summer In oJdltlons , alterations and repairs. A great deal of new machinery will bo purchased tifid djnamon to propel this machlncut will be maintained In a build ing to be ereWid for the purpose. Some .time ago the Cud.inys let a con tract for another artesian well , but t'.ie ex tremely ccld woither came on. about that time and It was decided to postpone all such work ira'Ml ' spring. In connection with this well there will be built n > 'resorvc-lr ' holding 1,000,000 gallons , which will be held In re- servo to bo used In case of fire or emergency. Plan/t are also being made for a largo fer tilizing building which is to be built on thu site of the present fertilizing plant. Superintendent Cameron or the Cudahy company has gone cast for 'the purpose of In vestigating the advisability of adding to the vailety of the products of t'he ' plnt and It Is portable that extensions not planned for at this tlmo may be adopted In addition to those already mentioned.
