nonnrea Dates for Speaker
(From a Btaff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Oct. 11. (Special.) State Irri
gation Engineer Dobson, who has Just re
turned from the convention of the National
Irrigation association, Bay that Nebraska
had one of the strongest delegations In at
tendance, numbering about twenty-flv out
of a total of something like 400. He ear
that the deliberations of the convention
were well calculated to fill an ardent irri
gation exponent with enthusiasm.
"From the discussion and the Informa
tion disseminated one cculd not help reach
ing the conclusion that there will be some
thing doing in Irrigation from this ttme
forward. Nothing was dene toward any
effort to direct the operation of tho gov
ernment authorities In the matter of lo
cating the Initial work. There were a num
ber of resolutions Introduced on the sub
Ject, three or four of them pointing out
specific locations for reservoirs, and ane
from thla atate, suggested by Senator Diet
rich, provided for the sinking of artesian
wells In various parta of Nebraska for the
development of the artesian flow if there
were any found. All of these resolutions
were side tracked by the resolutions com
rolttee, which concluded that It would be
best not to seek to Influence the federal
authorities and that any controversy pre
eipllated between rival locations would but
binder the work. Accordingly a resolution
was reported and parsed expressing Implicit
confidence in the Department of the Interior
and Its ability to use the $8,000,000 ap
propriation where it would do the most
nbetantlal good for the whole country.
"The big fight of the convention waa on
the proposition to merge the National Irri
gation association with the Transmlsslsslppl
congress. This proposition was urged by
George H. Maxwell and all rf the officers
of the National Irrigation association, who
suggested that now that tho work of the
association had been practically accom
plished in the passage of the Irrigation
bill. It would be difficult to provide rev
enues to keep It going, and that as the
work of the two organizations are largely
Identical It would be well to merge them
and make the Joint purposes of the new
organization the promotion of Irrigation,
commerce and forestry. The Nebraska dele
gation favored the proposition by a vote of
13 to 1, but it lost by a vote of 91 to 113.
It was opposed by those states which were
after the next annual convention, with
whom Colorado Anally stood because they
charged that, having had the convention
Itself, the continental state waa not dis
posed to show Us hospitality by putting
the association out of business.
Holmes la Liberal.
"Mr. Holmes of Utah, who was elected
president Of the association, may keep It
going, aa he la a man of large meana and
great reputed liberality. ' It waa told of
blm that once, when the people of Salt
Lake City were contemplating some big
enterprise Involving heavy expense for en
gineering work, a meeting waa held to
devise ways and means, and when Holmes
waa called upon he replied that he knew
of but one way In which the work could
b carried forward, and that was to' send
the bills to him. It waa done, and they
were promptly paid."
Mr. Dobson was made the Nebraska rep
resentative In the committee on resolu
tions, and Euclid Martin of 'Omaha was
re-elected as the Nebraska member of the
executive committee. P. H. Newell, chief
engineer of the hyrographlc department ot
the geological survey, who baa active
charge of the field work in advancing the
Irrigation project, was present and spoke
to the convention, but he gave no hint
as to where the first expenditures are likely
to be made or any of the plans of the
department. It la known, however, that
gangs of engineers connected with the de
partment are at work In various parts ot
the country, two of them being In Colo
rado. It la with one of these that Ferd
Bonstedt ot thla city is to be engaged

ventlon waa discussing the plan to limit
the holdings under irrigation to email

urged that the tracta be small, saying

CATARRH OF THE STOMACH.
A Pleasant, Simple, but Saf anJ
Effectual Cure (or It.
Catarrh of tbs stomach baa long been
considered the next thing to incurable.
The usual symptoms are a full or bloating
aenaatlon after eating, accompanied some
times with sour or watery risings, a forma
tion of gaaea, causing pressure on the heart
and lunga and difficult breathing, head
aches, fickle appetite, nervousness and a
general played out, languid feeling.
There la often a foul taate In the mouth,
coated tongue and if the Interior of the
stomach could be aeen It would ahow a
slimy. Inflamed condition.
The cure for thla common and obstinate
trouble la found In a treatment which
causes the food to be readily, thoroughly
digested before It haa time to ferment and
Irritate the delicate mucoua aurfacra if
th atomach. To secure" a prompt and
healthy digestion ia the one necessary thing
to do, and when normal digestion la se
cured the catarrhal condition will bava dis
appeared. According to Dr. Harlanson the safest
and best treatment la to use after each
meal a tablet, composed of Diastase, Asep
tlo Pepsin, a little Nuk. Golden Seal and
fruit acids. Thea tablets ran now be found
t all drug stores under the nam of Stu
art's Dyspepsia Tablets, and not being a
patent medicine can be used with perfect
aafety and assurance that healthy appetite
and thorough digestion will follow their
regular use after meals.
Mr. R. 8. Workman, Chicago. 111., wrltea:
"Catarrh Is local condition resulting from
a neglected cold In the head, whereby the
lining membrane of tb noae becomes In
flamed and th poisonous discharge there
from passing backward Into the throat
reaches tbe atomach, thla producing catarrh
ot tb atomach. Medical authorities pre
scribed for me for three year tor catarrh
ot atomach without cure, but today I am
tb happiest of men after using only one
box of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. I can
pot And appropriate worda to expreaa my
good feeling. 1 have found flesh, appetite
and aound real from their use."
8tuart's Dyspepsia Tableta la the aatest
preparation aa well aa th simplest and
most convenient remedy for any form of
Indigestion, catarrh of atomach, bilious
