Hope, Make a Me of It at
AINSWORTH, Neb , Sept. 2. (Special
Telegram.) Yesterday and today were
rank failures for the carnival so far as the
weather was concerned. Yesterday morn
ing started out cloudy and raw, but with
proepecta of clearing, so that It did not
prevent larger number from attend
ing who had made arrangements to do so,
but Instead of clearing the weather put on
Its roughest aspect, with accompanying
high winds, so thst it was Impossible to
have the balloon ascension snd parachute
leap or many of the attractions advertised.
Still the people were determined to make
the best of It, and the large, good-natured
crowd surged from point to point and en
Joyed Itself as well aa tbe nature of the
day would warrant. All the attractions
that could be pulled off. Including the
races, were done In the evening. The crowd
remained to see tbe crowning of the queen
and maid of honor, which occurred aa ad
vertised, and was met with enthusiastic
applause at every portion of the program.
After the crowning, which occurred on the
Second street platform, a reception to the
quen and maids was held at Rising s ball,
which was generously attended, the ball
being finely decorated, the whole pre
senting a scene never before equaled In
Alnsworth or this portion of the state.
J. II. Mickey, republican candidate for
governor, was present yesterday, as were
also the candidates for stste senator from
this district; Peter Mortensen, republican
candidate for state treasurer; General
Barry, fusion candidate for congress, and
the republican candidate for representa
tive from this district. All were presented
to the people and most of whom addressed
the waiting crowds for a few moments. Mr.
Mickey especially pleased the audience with
the few remarks he made. Thla morning
commenced with a drizzling rain, which
kept up all day and completely destroyed
every semblance of carnival Jubilee.

time that the machinery of the Kearney
cotton mill would be removed to Evans-

tend to establish a new mill. Just how
soon the removal will take place Is not cer
tain, but It is presumed that It will be soon,
because Charles N. Brown, treasurer of the
cotton mill company, has gone east and In

long. No disposition has been made of the
buildings and power plant, but there are
several enterprise that have been under
consideration, and It la not improbable that
the cotton mill will, tn time, be succeeded by
some manufacturing plant of equal import
ance and greater value.

and leave on its return trip at 11:30 p. m.
The Union Pacific will have no special

be sufficient to accommodate the heavy

Teruna curps catarrh wherever located1.
As soon as Peruna removes ratarrh from tha
stomach the digestion becomes good, ap
petite regular, nerves strong, and trsuMe
vanishes. Peruna strengthens wenk nerves,
not by temporarily stimulating them, but
by removing the cause of weak nerves
poor digestion. This Is the only cure that
lasts. Remove the cause; nature will do
the rest, reruna removes the cause.
