LINCOLN. May JO. (Special.) A notable
feature of th semi-annual apportionment
of fundi for tbc public schools Is the In
crease la the revenue of Internet on school
and Mllnc land, leased and sold. In the
half-year period ending May It tbe total
amount received on sale coa tracts wat
I122.M1. while In the corresponding period
a year ago the receipt were only 1106.201.
The rerenue from lease contract was 178,
132. while for the aame period a year sg
mly $m.9P8 waa received from thia source.
Tbeae lnrreasei are at 111 more gratifying
when It la known that aver too,000 of
acbool land eontracta have been pall off
lnce January 1. thue reducing, the
source from which the Interest money la
derived. All school land, with the excep
tion of a few hundred acres baa been
Irased, and collections of Intereat money
ware never eailer. '
This showing makes a boomerasg of the
plank la last year's populist platform. In
which the party patriots declared that
they "viewed with alarm the great shrink
age In. the revenue from the state school
snd saline lands. The comparisons are
made "With the figure of a period that
averaged as high as any' corresponding
period during the fusion - admlalstratlca
They show that while the contracts on
.thousands of acres have been paid oC the
Interest money baa steadily increased.
Other money in this aeml-annual appor
tionment waa derived as follows: State
school taxes. $122, BH; intereat on United
States bonds. 1300; Intereat on ccun'y

LINCOLN, Neb.. May 10. (Special Tele

city resulted In a sweeping victory far the
Thompson or so-called machine element.
Of the twenty city precincts only seven
were carried for the direct primary or anti
machine ticket. If the country precincts
stand with tbe majority forces of .the city,
as they are expected to do, the antt faction
will not get a rlce on the convention ticket.
Jn the Third ward Wlnnett carried his ewa
precinct by a majority of only alx rote,
th other three precinct going against
him. In the Fourth O. W. Webster loat
"in his own precinct, but won in the other
three. It is conceded that Senator O'Neill
and Representatives Warner and Mockett
will be nominated. Besides these men the
most probable slate Includes C. F. Beghtol
for senator ajid John H. McClay tor repre
sentative. Another nomination for repre
sentative will go either to E. T. Roberts
or J. M. Burgess. This leaves still another
nomination for tbe lower house and It will
be given to tbe country. Joseph Burns
was defeated In the Third ward and Is
probably out of the race.

Ia a recent letter from t00 Michigan

For over twenty-five years r I
suffered from catarrh, and for
over ten years I suffered froan
catarrh of the stomach terribly.
"I have taken all kinds of medi
cines and have been treated by
pall kinds of doctors, as thousatnds
of ray . acquaintances are awar
in different parts of the United
Mates, where I bare traveled, but
my relief was only temporary,
until a lljtle over a year ago I
started to take Pcruna. and at the
present time I am better than I
have been tor twenty years.
"The soreness has left my stom
ach entirely and I am free from
ladlgestion and dyspepsia and will
say to all who are troubles with
catarrh or stomach trouble of any
kind, don't put it off and suffer,
but begin to take Pcruna right
away, and keep it up until you are
cured, as you surely will be if you
"My wife, as many In tbe southwest ran
say, was troubled with a bad cough and
bronchial trouble, and doctors all over the
t country gave her up to die, ss they could
do nothing more for her. She began tak
ing Peruna with tbe result thst she 1 bet
ter now than she baa been in years, and
her cough baa almost left her entirely.
The soreness ha left her lung and she
Is as well as she ever was In her life,
with thank, as she says, to Peruna.

Catarrh in its various forms is rapidly
becoming a general curse. An undoubted
remedy ha been discovered by Dr. Hart
man. This remedy ha been thoroughly
tested during the past forty years. Prom
inent men have come to know of its virtues
and are making public utterances on the
subject. To save tbe country we must
save the people. To save the people we
must protect them from disease. Tbe dis
ease that is at once tbe most prevalent
and stubborn of cure Is catarrh.
If one were to make a list of the different
names that have been applied to catarrh.
in d iff ere m. locations and organs, the re
in different locations and oragans. the re
sult would be astonishing. We have often
published a partial list of these names, and
the surprise caused by the first publica
tion of It to all people, both professional
and non-professional was amusing. And
It is surprising how
allow themselves to become and remain consti
pated. They apparently do not know that thia .
. condition poisons tbe entire system. N'ot irame-, ,i
' diately of course, but after a little time at tbe pot- .
aonous impurities accumulate tbey attack tbe vital
organs and undermine the constitution. Ante-
! suit, the victim becomes pale,-hollow-eyed and
callow, the breath is foul, the head aches fre-
quently, the strength slowly declines and the once
strong, active body becomes weak and nervous.
