LINCOLN' , Sept. 20. ( Spcclsl. ) The
Dcu's exposure of the state buttcrlno and
oleomargarine contracts has caused a great
deal of comment , especially among the
farmers , dairymen and creamery men , who
are most directly Interested In the butter
making Industry , and a largo number of
Inquiries have come In for exact details of
this new scheme of the popocratlc oinclaU
to "save money. " To satisfy thcsa Inquir
ers that thcro Is no guesswork about thin
matter , the vouchers In the auditor's of-
flco have been gone over In detail , the Hast
ings Asylum for the Incurable Insanu be
ing taken as a sample institution. In the
table bulow , ( showing the amount of arti
ficial butter purchased for this Institution
during the past fourteen months , the num
ber of CO-pound tubs , the brand of grease
and the voucher numbers are given as they
appear on the vouchers. The purchases
ehown below were all from one firm at Kan-
nan City. No search has yet been made to
find If buttcrlnc was also purchased from
local dealers , or how much real butter was
bought for the use of the olllclals of the
asylum. It will bo noticed that the Kansas
City dealers worked off on the Hastings
institution an average of about 1,000 pounds
of "olco" per month. The figures copied
from the official vouchers are as follows :

Using the Hastings asylum as a , basis to
figure froru , It will bo found that an enual
amount of btitterinc per capita for all Insti
tutions In tbo state would foot up to 51,850
pounds. This Immense amount of artlllclal
butter , at 10 cents per pound , the ordinary
prlco paid , would cost $5lSu. Hut It take *
the place of at least 61,839 pounds of Ne
braska butter which ought to bring the peo-
ulo J10.370. It seems that the butter mak
ers of Nebraska arc not only deprived of
the chance to market this amount of their
product but that Iho sum of $5,185 has been
taken out of circulation hero and sent to
Missouri. This Is calculated to make the
average farmer or dairyman wonder where
it Is that the stale olllclals "stand up for
In the face of these figures the "reform
state ofllclals" may demur and claim that
port of the tlmo eomo of the state's wards
wcro fed on real butter , or that the fig
ures are a fo\v dollars too high , because
the llttlo blind girls at Nebraska City , not
being heavy eaters , do not consume their
full share of the Kansas City butterlne.
Hut this can bu met by the assertion Unit
the Industrial school boys are naturally
larcQ caters and very wasteful , and that
the Inmates of the Soldiers' homo have been
known to surreptitiously grease their boots
with the butterlne set before them. So
that would more than offset the saving
made on account of the poor appetites of
the blind girls.
The butterlne used by the state Institutions
Is only a small Item In the total amount
of food consumed by the people In the insti
tutions , and If th $ same method Is followed
in thu purchase of giber supplies , using
cheap , artificial nnd - adulterated food , the
caving ought to bo much larger than the
"reformers" have reported , aid | there Is a
chance that some of the funds are being

COLUMBUS , Neb. , Sept. 20. ( Special. )
The old time hog cholera has again made
Its appearance In Platte county. O. D. But
ler , a. farmer living within a few miles of
town , has lost some forty head recently ,
and ho says It affects both the old hogs
and the pigs and no remedy seems to check
Its ravages. Several others have lost some ,
but not in such numbers as Mr. Butler.
Thogo who have seen the hogs say It Is
the real old thing.
About two weeks ago John Foreman , a
farmer living In Burrows township , had all
of his stacks destroyed by lire just after he
had commenced threshing. Ho only saved
about forty bushels of oats , which they had
Just threshed. The lire caught by sparks
from the engine. Ho at once brought suit

holz & Pettcrs for the amount of his loss ,
and yesterday In Justice Fuller's court re
covered a Judgment for the full amount.
It Is believed that the Judgment will stand
and that no appeal will be taken.

SHAM IIATTI.I3 .V ( iltUAT SUCCHSS.
Another Stiirtllnxly Ili-nllitlc Kvlillil-
llon ( ilveii liy the IiidlniiN.
Not less than 10,000 people witnessed the
sham battle between the Indians yesterday
afternoon and when It was over and the
dead and wounded carted away It was pro
nounced a great success. It was fought
along substantially the same lines as some
of tbo others that have been put on and
was carried out In every detail. In addition
to these who occupied seals In the reserved
section and these who stood around the
ropes thcro was the senatorial party and a
number of the exposition directors.
The great fight of the afternoon was
started off by Captain Mercer marching all
of his Indians up In front of the reviewing
stand. The first detachment was composed
of the Interpreters , who clad in their new
suits consisting of brown corduroy trousers ,
blue flannel shirts and light brown slouch
hats made a very neat appearance. Then
came the squaws of the different tribes ,
each baud coming up separately. They In
turn were followed by the Indians , marching
In the same order , after which the horsemen
appeared on the scene , tribe after tribe rid
ing up at full gallop and yelling their war
whoops. Behind each band rode Its chief
and as they reached the seats , the name of
the tribe as well as the name of the leader
was announced. Old Goronlmo appeared to
bo the lion of the occasion and was cheered
from the tlmo ho started until ho halted
his animal In front of the stand. The old
man rode like a general and evidently ap
preciated < the ovation , as he doffed his hat
and bowed as gracefully ns a Chesterfield.
This part of the program having been car
ried out , the Indians filed off over the field
toward < the east and back to the starting
place , from which the horsemen rode In a
body , yelling In a manner that made some of
the timid white people feel like taking to the
wood. After the sounds of the yells had
died away , a volley was flrod and everything
was ready for the fight.
AVlint the I'lRht Wan Aliout.
As the story goes , a Sioux Indian , Grass ,
had been over In the territory of the Black-
feet trapping beaver and as the tribes were
not on friendly terms he had been doomed
to die at tbo stake , a slow fire doing the
business. Of course this was simply the
play and In order to carry It out there had
to be a battle.
After thrf parade the Sioux and their al
lies , under command of Goea-to-War , took
up a position on the east side of the
grounds , while the Blackfeet and their al
lies , led by Big Brave , went out Into the
space at the west end of the grounds. Then
everything was ready for business. In from
the west came a little band of Indians lead
ing a horse , on which was mounted Mr.
Grass. He looked sad and his every action
Indicated that ho was ready to expect al
most anything. It was not moro than a
minute before 100 Indians , painted and
ornamented with feathers , hustled In from
the same direction as came the men with
the Indian who was to be tortured. They
whooped like mad and ono of their number ,
Cut Nose , made a speech. He told a tale
of cruelty perpetrated by Grass and opined
that ho ought to die llko a dog. Grass
smiled and told his captors to do their
worst , as he was ready to die. Then some
of the fellows who were not singing war
songs commenced to gather grass and straw
that was lying conveniently around , waitIng -
Ing to be gathered. Grass was pulled from
his horse and roped to an electric light
pole. The next act In the war drama waste
to tlo him good and tight. After that ) a
circle was formed about him and the- war
dance was put on with a war eong accom
About the tlmo the Blackfeet were ready
to fire the straw around Grass' feet a runner
came In and reported that two Sioux were
out In the brush taking observations. Big
Brave selected a dozen of his most trusty
warriors and sent them out to bring In the
two men that they might bo roasted with
Grass. The Sioux got wind of the proceed
ings and scudded over the prairie , but ona
of them was not swift enough and was cap
tured and scarped , while the other managed
to get back to his camp. When the scalp
was brought It the Blackfeet and their al
lies proceeded to have a Jollflcatlon and then
slarlcd a fire around Grass. Their fun ,
however , was short lived , for about this
Ulmo the Sioux came down upon them pell
mell , firing Into their ranks and knocking
out a dozen of the best men , The Black-
feet were routed and driven off , after which
the Sioux had their fun. They brought In
ten prisoners and after releasing Grass ,
bound them all to the same electric light

ing the necessary preparations for the erec

they ordered a load of straw and had it
dumped In the northwest corner of the In
dian encampment. Next , with hoes , spades
and shovels they dug a pit. Into this they
poured water and throw in soft dirt nnd
straw which they mixed thoroughly by
tramping with their bare feet. The mixing
process was continued for a couple of hours.
After that they got out a number of
moulds and went to making aclobo brick.
Before night they had several hundred of
theae brick out drying In the sun. When
a , sufficient quantity Is made they will be
used In the construction of a house , made
to rcsemblo the ones that they live In when
on their reservation near Santa Fo.

The llcault of Imperfect Ulicciitlon of
Every living thing , plant or animal , con
tains within Itself the germs of certain de
cay and death.
In the human body these germs of dis
ease and death ( called by scientists Pto
maines ) , are usually the result of Imperfect
digestion of food ; the result of in digestion
The stomach , from abuse , weakness , does
not promptly and thoroughly digest the
food. The result Is a heavy , sodden mass
which ferments ( the first process of decay )
poisoning the blood , making It thin , weak ,
and lacking In red corpuscles ; poisoning
the brain causing headaches and pain In the
eyes.Bad digestion Irritates the heart , caus
ing palpitation and finally bringing on dis
ease of this very Important organ.
Poor digestion polEons the kidneys , caus
ing Brlght's disease and diabetes.
And this Is BO because every organ , every
nerve depends upon the stomach alone for
nourishment and renewal , and weak diges
tion shows Itself not only In loss of appe
tite and flesh , but In weak nerves and mud
The great English scientist , Huxley , said
the bent start In llfo la a sound stomach.
Weak stomachs fall to digest food prop
erly , btcause they lack the proper quantity
of digestive acids ( lactic and hydrochloric )
and peptogenlc products ; the most sensible
remedy in ell cases of Indigestion Is to take
after each meal ono or two of Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets , because they supply In a
pleasant , harmless form all the elements
that weak stomachs lack.
The regular use of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets will euro every form of stomach
trouble except cancer of the stomach.
They Incieaso flesh , Insure pure blood ,
strong nerves , a bright eye and clear com
plexion , because all these result only from
wholesome food well digested.
