THE OMAHA DAILY BEE : WEDNESDAY , SEPTEMBER 21. 1808. MONEY CUES TO MISSOURI State Funds Expended for Benefit of the Kansas City Manufactory. ONE BEAUTY OF POPOCRATIC ECONOMY Not Onlr HUN the Slnti ! llonrd "Snx-d" , tin I It linn Kept \i-l > rnsUu 1'coplu from llaiulllnurVliul It Did Spend. 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 : Data and No. or voucher. Amount paid. July 9. 13,291-10 tubs Crescent solid.J 48.80 Hept. 13 , 14,921-10 tubH May solid. . .

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 Nebraska. " 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 Juggled Instead of being used for legitimate purposes. The requisition of the governor of Iowa has been honored for the return of W. M. KerrlngWm , who Is now under arrest nt Scotia , Grceley county.

( 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 against the owners of the machine Stlno- 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. Something over two years ago George Smith of this city run a catfish horn into the bottom of his right foot. Physicians at the tlmo removed what they thought to bo the bone , but the foot always gave him trouble and at times ho could scarcely walk , Yesterday ho went to a physician and applied the X-rays to the foot and the bono was plainly visible. An incision was made and the bono removed , which was Just one and a quarter Inches In length. II thinks ho will hnvo no further trouble. Military Aenileniy OIKMIN. KEARNEY , Neb. , Sept. 19.

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 paniment. 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 pole. Then there was a Sioux war song and a dance that went with it and for a tlino It looked ns though there was to be a hot tlmo in the camp for severar men and un doubtedly there would have been had not the Blackfeet gathered up a lot of reinforce ments and renewed the attack. They came in like the wind and engaged the Sioux. They had but one motto and that was : "When you see a head hit It. " The hitting process worked with both sides and for a tlmo it was hard to tell which side would carry the day. ( iiieN-tn-Wiir 11 fienoral. Up and down the field the contending forces fought , first one side having an ad vantage and then another. Every protuberance - anco upon the ground and every tree had Us Indian and hU gun behind It and whenever - over a head appeared It was shot at , many of the fihots taking effect , causing scores of Indians fo bile the dust. At last the Sioux showed signs of weakening and It was right at this point that Goea-to-War imowcd that he Is of the right kind of stuff. Whenever ho saw a band of Indiana Incline < o show the white feather ho rode out and urged them to return , telling them that their fathers never knew what 'It ' was to bo whipped. The words were like magic and many a wavering column was brought back to engage In the fight. At last Goes-to-War seemed to bo convinced that he was leading a forlorn hope. He rode along the ambush line which his brave * occupied and shouted lo ihem to follow him. Llko one man the llttlo band rose from cover and made a frightful charge , pouring blank cartridge * Into the enemy , and It is possible that the Sioux might have won the day had not Goes-to-War received a shot that Kent him off bis horse and rolled him in tbo dual. His men rushed to hU as sistance , but It was too late , for the old man had fought his last fight and hla spirit . bad gone to uievt those of hla fattier. ! . Bee- 1 ' Ing Hint their leader was dead the Sioux re treated In had order and the buttle was over. Then It was that attention was Klven to the prisoner ! who had brcn bound to the itnkp. but thl.i waa unnecessary , na they hud broken their bonds and had escaped. Tnltpi Clu.rne of 1'riilt i\prr : .

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.

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 or dyspepsia. 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. 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 dy complexion. 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. Nearly all druggists sell Stuart's Dyspep sia Tablets nt CO cents full sized package , or by mall by enclosing price to Stuart Co. , Marshall , Mich. , but ask your druggist first.
