the two active catidldatca tn Lancaster county

provide an excellent opportunity for a can

him to make the race end others asking him
to remain on the district bench for the prcs

a popular Judge that noni of the attorneys

LINCOLN LOCAL NOTES.
The city of Lincoln has brought suit enjoining -
joining the Lincoln Traction company from
operating street cars on the streets of the
city. The suit Is filed by the city attorney
In rrsporso to on order made by the city
council eome weeks ago. The city contends
that the Lincoln Street Hallway company
coiild not assign Its franchise , and that
tt the property has been sold the new
fflfcany must secure a new franchise.

A divorce waa granted b'l District Judge
C/jrnlsh last Friday In a case that Is since
attracting much attention. The plalntlft ,
( Mrs. W. W. Drummond , lives In I'latts-
rnouth and the husband has been an1 inmate
of the asylum here for six years. The grou-ids
for the divorce were desertion anil nonsupport -
, port , and It Is said that the fact that the
husband was an Inmate of tlio asylum was
, , not brought to the attention of the court.
Attorneys In discussing the case now < say
4 that the decree ot divorce will not hold , be-
iv \ cause there was no desertion , no legal serv-
'r Ice on Drummond , anl further because the
wlfo was not a resident of the county In
\ \vhlch thi > divorce was granted. A peculiar
, part of the case Is that while Drummond
was represented by attorneys none of these
vital points wuro 'presented to the court.

LINCOLN , March 29. ( Special Telegram. )
Forty officers of the Nebraska National
Guard met here tonight to reorganize the
guard association. General Barry presided
and Governor Holcomb delivered the ad
dress of welcome. In the course of his re
marks the governor said that these ar3
times when not only organization , but ac
tion , may be necessary. The people of the
country were looking earnestly toward those
whose duty It woulA be to take the first ac
tion In upholding the honor of our flag. The
country must receive Its protection largely
from the organized guard. The governor said
he believed there would be none braver than
the Nebraska guard should there be a call
to go to the front , die hoped the emer
gency would not come , but If It did It would
be met with firmness and bravery. None
know what tomorrow may bring forth , and
It la best to bo prepared. He believed that
It would be better for the country to In
crease the force and efficiency of th ? guard
of the various states , rather than to go to
the expense of Increasing the standing army.
The number of brave soldiers who would be
ready to fill the ranks In case of the coun
try's call would bo limited only by the num
ber of the able-bodied men In the country
and they would form an army against which
united Europe could not prevail. The gov
ernor closed by complimenting the guard
for Its Improvement in the last few years
and calling attention to the efficient help
ot the special aid , Major E. O. Fechet of the
General BIllB responded to the governor's
speech. A resolution was then adopted com-
pllmentlnir Major Fechet on his good work
and regretting his departure. Constitution

adopted , making each commissioned officer

Builds up Muscular Strength and Nerve force
Health is the best inheritance. Neglected
health means death , A man cannot straddle the
fence when it comes to a question of ill health.
Either he is well or he is not well. If he is not
well , the chances are his nervous system has
ken weakened or deranged ; ( or all the functions
of his bodv are regulated and controlled by the
nerves. When a'man finds his strength is fail
ing , from any cau.se whatever , his only real
safety is to renew the sources of vitality at their
fountain head. The best agency for this pur
pose is Dr , Miles' Restorative Nervine. This won-
derlul nerve food and tonic stimulates the di
gestive organs , aids nourishment and builds up
solid muscular strength , nerve force and energy.
It restores health.
From Frewsb 'rg , N. Y. , Mr. P. M. Halsry writes nn follows : "In 1801 ! my health was so poor
tlmt I thought my tlmu htul eome to die. I was being treated by our physician. * , lint steadily Q ?
grew worse mulct1 tliclr treatment until my strength seemed to be all pone. 1 had faint and
smothering spells which were accompanied by sharp pains In my allies , uhouldcm and wrists ; Q ?
dizziness and loss of sloop. I would He and toss hour after hour and get np In the morning
feeling as tired as when I went to bed. 1 was unable to even do my chores , until ono day 1
bought a bottle of Dr. Miles' Kestoratlve Nervine and began using It. Prom that tlmo 1 begun to
