preme Representative O'Neill of Lincoln;
The rank of past chancellor was also con

The Irrret at a Haeceeafal Mereaaat.
The success of a merchant depends
largely vpon his ability to please his cus
tomers. In order to do so he recommends
only artlclea which are to bis knowledge
most reliable. In handling medicine thla is
especially true, as people desire the best
preparation .en the market .and appreciate
the recommendation of their druggist. Here
Is what V. J. Leight of Houae Springs, Mo.,
says of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy: "I
can recommend Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy to my customers to be second to none
on the market. For croup with vhlldrca
there U nothing better."

Although officials of the Omaha Street
Railway company decline to discuss -the
matter, information comes from reliable
sources that the purchase of the local rail
way properties by J. . V W. Sellgman
co. or New York has reached the etage
where . the transfer of stock has actually
begun. Aa was published In The Be Tues
day, local banker stated that his bank
alone handled over 3100,000 worth of this
stock Monday' and that other banks were
engaged In similar transactions. Tbls was
regarded as conclusive of the transfer of
the stock, and since then further evidence
has been obtained to substantiate tbls.
A director of the railway company waa
asked yesterday for Information on tbls sub
ject, but declined to disclose what officials
of the company would not.
"Co not these transactions at the banks
clearly indicate that the stock Is actually
changing hands?" was asked.
"I should certainly think so," waa the
President Murphy waa again approached
as to the status of the deal and said:
"Matters are in the sama shape they were
three weeks ago. There is nothing new
and therefore nothing to be given to the
press that would throw any new light upon
the reports already published. Some of the
local banks may be In possession of checks
of this company; I do not know as to that,
but that is not especially significant."
