IITTIE 6IRL IS TO VISIT HER FATHER
Both Sides te t'ontroverey Annoence
that Decision of the Court la Rat
Isfactory, but Attorney
The conclusion of the habeas corpus pro
ceedings for tha possession of Ruth Ewart.
a (td I, cama yesterday afternoon when
Judge Baxter gsve her Into tha custody
of tha grandmother, Mrs. Ruth Dodder of
Ui Franklin atreet, with the stipulation
that aha be sent at tha expense of her
father. J. B. Ewart of Kearney, to visit
aim there two month! of each summer va-
eatloa, two weeks of the Christmas holi
days, and at such other times aa the con
tending parties msy be able to agree upon.
Tha father Is also to be given leave to visit
the child at her grandmother'a. whenever
convenient, and she Is not to be taken out
of tha state. Both sides expreps them
selves aa quite well satisfied with the ar
rangement. The. costs were taxed to the
father, who is the respondent In the suit. ,
Before giving bis ruling Judge Baxter re
viewed the case briefly from the time Mrs.
Ewart went to California for her health
to that church hour, three weeks ago Sun
day morning, when Ewart seised the child
from her grandmother's care as they were
returning from Sunday school, and drove
te Council Bluffs with btr. The court
touched upon the strained relations of tbe
father and tbe mother of the girl and of
the contrary, desires of each, as to tbe
girl's disposition, end caHed attention to
tba fact tbe child bad been In the grand
mother'a care since 2 yesrs oM.. j
. . Remark of the-Jadft. ..
"Tha court concludes from .the evidence,"
continued Judge Baxter, "that the father Is
a reputable, honorable and bigh-rolnded
gentleman, perfectly capable of educating
tha little one, sincere in bis affection for
her. and In every sense a proper person to
have her rare and custody. But the court
la constrained also to consider what will
bo best and most pleasing to tha child her
. self, and tt la forced to take cognizance
of the facte that tha father is obliged, by
his interests In the elevator business, to be
touch away from his home In Kearney i
that during his absence the child would
be la tha care of tha paternal grandmother, 1
who Is conceded to bo a comparative
atrr.ngcr to her, and who has admitted on
the witness stand that aha probably could
Sever have any very great affection for the
child; that the maternal grandmother al
ready has Such affection, has ao one else
to look after and would give her every
future thought and care to the little one.
and, finally, that the child baa her play
mates here, has atarted to school here and
feela most at home here. The father wishes
her In Kearney, but ber presence In Omaha
represents tha wish of the mother, who
. has equal right. These circumstances, then,
Induce the court to decide the matter In a
way that gives the mother tba custody of
. tha child, but must not be construed as In
any way Intimating doubt of tbe father's
Stneaa. both aa man and parent."
Effect of tke Rnllagr.
-The ruling .is In effect that the child
ahall be with her grandmother until four
teen year of age. or until her grand
er other' death, bat visit the father as

mentloned above. Hie attorneys called at
tention to the fact that he had not had
peaceful possession of the child for a long
time and tbe court stipulated that he ahould
have a special visit of one week in March
After the decision Mr. Ewart said: "This
suits me thoroughly. It Is all I hoped for.
I had offered to aettle this matter with
the stipulation that the child be kept In
tbe state, but they would not agree to that.
Now that the court has Included such stipu
lation In Its ruling I am content. This
will bring about a settlement of the whole
In strange contradiction of this state
ment, however. Is that of W. L. Hand, one
ct Mr. Ewart' attorney, who dictated a
motion for a new trial on the ground that
the finding of the court wsa not borne out
by the facts, and remarked as he did so
that the case was "almost certain to be
carried to the supreme court."
At the conclusion of the proceedings that
have kept the parties In court most of
three daya there were no dramatics and
no sobs. Mr. Ewart crossed the room and
kissed his child, but the grandmother d's
couraged any prolonged conversation. Mr.
Ewart called his brother, Louis Ewart, and
attempted to present him to Mrs. Dodder,
who extended her hsnd, but he drew back
quickly and thruet his band Into hla pocket.
The elder brother spoke reprovingly and
pulled at his coat to persuade blm to turn
about, but he would not do so, and Mrs.
Dodder exclaimed: "See there. That shows
the malice that Is felt."
The morning had been given over to two
witnesses, whose testimony waa In rebuttal
of that given by Mr. Ewart at Saturday's
These two were the grandmother herself
nd ber daughter, Mr. Mollle Smith.
Neither made any statement of particular
Interest except, perhaps, that of Mrs.
Dodder to the effect that Mr. Ewart haj
sent to his invalid wife In California a
draft, tor $200, with the explanation that
$140 of. the amount was for the expected
operation and the .rest tor subsequent hos
pital expenses if she lived, or for the pur
chase of a casket and the transportation
of her body to Kearney if she did not sur
vive. Attorney John Dryden of Kearney, argu
ing for the father, conceded the .tender In
stincts of the grandmother, Mrs. Dodder,
and her Interest In tbe child, but called
attention to her age, 9, as Impairing her
capacity as a caretaker. He said, too, that
any partiality the child might seem to show
tor' the grandmother was easily accounted
tor by the Intimacy that could not but exist
when they bad been so much together, and
tbe father kept so long away. He said be
could not believe M.s. Dodder's statement
that she bed said nothing to prejudice the
little girl against her father, when It was
ao apparent that tbe aged woman cherished
only the most unkind feelings toward him.
He described the provisions for taking care
of the child In the home of her father at
Kearney and pleaded that tha father's af
fection was even deeper than the grand
mother's could be and cited precedents In

Delicately formed and gently reared, women will
find. In 1 11 the seasons of their lives, as maids or wire t
or mothers, that the one simple, wholesome remedy
which acts gently and pleasantly and naturally, and
which may be used with truly beneficial effects, nnder
anyeonditions,when the system needs a laxative Is
Syrup of Fhjra, It Is well known to be a simple com
bination of the laxative and carminative principles of
plants with pleasant, aromatic liquids, which are
agreeable and refreshing to the taste and acceptable
to the system when Its gentle cleansing Is desired.
Many of the ills from which women suffer are of
a transient nature and do not come from any organic
trouble and it Is pleasant to know that they yield so
promptly to the beneficial effects of 8yrnp of Figs,
but when anything more than a laxative Is needed it
is best to consult the family physician and to avoid
the old-time cathartics and loudly advertised nos
trums of the present day. When one needs only to
remove the strain, the torpor, the congestion, or
similar ills, which attend upon a constipated condi
tion of the system, use the true and gentle remedy
Syrup of Figs and enjoy freedom from the depres
sion, the aches and pains, colds and headaches, which
are dne to Inactivity of the bowels. .
Only those who buy the genuine Syrup of Flga
can hope to get its beneficial effects and as a guar
antee of the excellence of the remedy the full name
of the company California Fig Syrup Co. is
printed on the front of every package and without
it any preparation offered as Syrup of Figs Is fraud
ulent and should be declined. To those who know the
quality of this excellent laxative, the offer of any
substitute, when Syrup of Figs Is called for, is
always resented by a transfer of patronage to some
first-class drug establishment, where they do not
recommend, nor sell false brands, nor Imitation
remedies. The genuine article may be bought of all
reliable druggists everywhere at 60 cents per bottle.

ments satisfactory to the mayor and coun
cil will be made. At tbe close of the short
session one of the councllmen said that the
whole trouble now waa about tbe purchase
of a site. The power of the library board
to buy the site had been conceded by the
city attorney and now the council wants to

As the mayor has It now, seven members
of the board reside north of N street and

thinks, however, that there will be no need
of making a special levy for the purpose, ss
it Is understood that tbe council will make
the proper provision for tbe payment of
the claim as soon as the 1902 levy Is avail
able. By deferring the matter, the claim
ants will not only confer a favor upon the
city, but will receive accumulated Interest
which amounts to considerable. This els Ira
