Nash Advanced from Vice Presidency and Eseratlve Com mittee Appointed. Fred A. Nash Is the new president of the Omaha Auditorium company. He was ad vanced from tha vice pranldcncy at a meet ing of the director held at the Millard hotel Thursday night, and at the same time Thomas C. Byrne was elected vice presi dent and an eecutVya rommlttee of (even members was appointed. Mr. Nah' accepted he presidency on condition that the buslnoss of the company Would be placed In the hands of an execu tive committee and tha officers. He said be had perfect faith In the board of direc tors, but a body of twenty-five was too large and the direct management of the enterprise could be better attended to by smaller and more compact organization. President Nash has selected the follow ing gentlemen to serve on the executive committee: F. A. Sanborn, C. H. Pickens, F. H. Davis, J. F. Carpenter, E. P. Feck. Ward Burgess and J. L. Kennedy. The deceased had been a member of the department tor nearly ten years and was held In high esteem. McOrcel's death was due to an attack of typhoid fever. Mrs. MtGreel had only recovered from the same disease when her little child fell a victim to It, being taken later to the hospital, when Mr. McOreel contracted the fever.

PLENTY OF WYOMING COAL State Mine Inapertor Does Not t'nder atand the Scarcity In Thla City. Mayor Moores received a call yesterday morning from "Noah Young, state mine In spector of Wyoming, and Dr. F. C. Rugg of Glen Rock, Wyo. Dr. Rugg Is on his way to New York for the purpose of tak ing a post graduate course, but Mr. Young will remain In the city for a few days on business, . partly of an official character. 8peaklng of the present scarcity of Rock Springs coal in this vicinity, Mr. Young said that he waa at a loss to account for It, as there has been more coal mined this year by a half million tons than any previ ous year. There has been, he says, in the five years of his incumbency as mine in spector, an increase of 2.000,000 tons In the output of the Rock Springs mines, the production of the past year having beea 6.000,000 tons. THAT THROAT-TICKLING It's first, the throat; Then, the bronchial tubes ; Next, the lungs; At last, Consumption. There's nothing so bad for a cough as coughing !

Mick, DEVELOPMENT OF CULTURES Health Commissioner Ralph la Per. lectins Arrangements for Lab oratory Work. Health Commissioner Ralph Is now per fecting arrangements for laboratory devel opment of cultures from supposed cases of diphtheria and will probably have his plan in operation before January 1. Dr. Ralph ' has been trying for a long time to aecure a laboratory for the use of his department and in his annual report to the mayor and city council, which is now being prepared, he will earnestly urge that such facilities be afforded his department, but In the mean time he has found a means whereby the development of diphtheria cultures may be secured at comparatively small expense to the city. One of the medical colleges has agreed to conduct the laboratory work, and the physicians will be furnished with con veniences tor the collection of the cultures and will be encouraged by the department in that work. Dr. Ralph has selected a number of drug tores in different parts of the city, and as far as is possible covering tha entire city, where physicians may upon applica tion be furnished with the glass tubes and other convenlencea required in gathering cultures. These tubes will be furnished at the expense of the city and when re. turned to the health department by phy sicians will be sent to the laboratory for the development of the culturea. BUCK'S CHRISTMAS CANTATA "The Comlnar of the Ktnsr" ta Be Pre sented at Flrat Methodist Charch. The special feature of the Christmas aeason musically will be the presentation I for the first time In Omaha of Dudley , Buck's Christmas cantata, or short ora , torlo entitled "The Coming of the King." ! It will be given at the First Methodist Episcopal church on Sunday evening at 7:30 j sharp. The work la said to be replete I with musical Interest and full of interest ! log gems. Some prominent names will be dropped from the cay rolls of the Union Pacific Jan- I uary 1, when the new pension system goes Into effect. The exact number of names has not been obtained, as the reports from ; the various quarters are coming In slowly, ' but it Is understood that the list will be large and will include names of veteran i employes from the various departments of the company. It appears that the auditing cparirnem win lose nivio uwu im,j an other department at the general headquar ters In Omaha. The names of Cook. Mills. Lavldge and Reed, which have appeared on the pay rolls of the Union Pacific for twenty years or more will be dropped from General Auditor Young's roll, and possibly one or two more. John R. Manchester, general claim agent, probably will be the most prominent veteran around the headquarters affected by this system. Among the prominent officers of the Union Pacific In other cities who, It Is said, will come under the benefits of this magnani mous dispensation are these: J. D. Ten broeck, traveling passenger agent, Albany, N. T.; R. Tenbroeck, general eastern agent, Boston; George Ady, city passenger and passenger agent, Kansas City; D. W. Hitch cock, general agent passenger department, San Francisco. This list Is not supposed to be complete, but these are a few of the more prominent In the traffic circle who, It held, will be effected. Primarily for Shop Employes. The pension system. It is said, was de signed primarily with reference to the men employed in the company's shops, where there were so many old-timers. The com pany Is said to have devoted much time try ing to evolve some successful method of dispensing with these old men, where age is more of a factor in Incapacitating men than in any other department of the com pany's service. Arbitrary discharge of these old employes has not proved the most feasible way out of the difficulty. Such a departure Incurs the displeasure of the trade unions to which the discharged men belong, and the company at once hazards Its peaceful relations with or ganized labor by pursuing this course. This test has been made. Less than a year ago there was a thinning out process to some extent and matters have not been en tirely adjusted over that action yet. Just about the time the pending strike began, or a few days before, the company let out some of its oldest shopmen and the strikers In corporated this as one of their grievances when the order came to quit work, so that the company has decided that this Is not a successful expedient. The pension system Is expected to adequately meet the demand. Men Are Not Enthusiastic. The strikers' attitude toward the pension system Is not one .of great enthusiasm, to say the least. In fact, many of the men do not display the Interest In It which might naturally be expected. As one of them put.it: "I never expect: to get any thing from this pension system. The com pany will take good care that none of Its men- In the shops get old -enough to be pensioned. They will be .leti-aait." - . But from the officials' standpoint this Is a pessimistic view. The pension system was promulgated In the best faith and after close observation of iti workings on other 1 roads, it has been organized, tor operation on all the Harrlman lines and many clerl- . cal employee are greatly enthused over It. ' Not many Omaha shopmen will be pen sioned under this system right away. Of , the machinists these are named as cos- I stbtlitles: Edward Edwards, Otto Gugler Henry Jones; blacksmiths, John Bonnl vler; boiler makers, John Clare, Pompy Krause and U. Flannigan. There are other candidates in other towns along the road. Armstrong Is said to have more than any other one shop. The trainmen, aa well as the shopmen and the other employes, are subject to this system also. How many engineers, fire men, conductors, brakesmen or switchmen are 85 or 75 years of age and have been In the service of the Union Pacific for twenty years cannot now be stated.

"We began to use it and experienced such wonderful results that since then Peruna has become our favorite medicine for In fluenia. catarrh, cold, cough and bron chitis." Another recommend from a Catholic Institution of one of the Central States written by the Sister Superior reads as follows: "A number of years ago our attention was railed to Dr. Hartman's Peruna, and since then we have used It with wonder ful results for grip, coughs, colds and ca tarrhal disease of the head and stomach. "For grip and winter catarrh especially It has been of great service to the Inmates of this Institution." I A letter recently received by Dr. New York, reads as follows: Hart man from Sister Beatrix, 410 W. 80th atreet, Dr. S. B. Hartman, Columbus, Ohio: Dear Sir: "1 cannot ay too much In praise of Peruna. Eight bottles of It cured me of catarrh of the lungs of four years standing-, and I would not have been without It for anything. It helped several Sisters of coughs and colds and I have yet to fiod one case of catarrh that It does not cure." SISTER BEATRIX. INTERESTING LETTERS FROM CATHOLIC INSTITUTIONS THE SISTERS GOOD WORK. Dr. S. B. Hantman, Columbus, Ohio: Dear Sir. "The young: girl who used the Peruna was suffering; from laryngi tis and loss of voice. The result of the trcatmeut was most satisfactory. She found great relief, and after further use of the medicine we hope to be able to In every country of the civilized world the Sisters of Charity are known. Not only do they minister to the spir itual and Intellectual r.eeds of the charges committed to their I say she Is entirely cured." Sisters of care, but they also minister "wliariiy. to their bodily needs. With This young girl was under the care of the so many children to take care Slaters of Charity and used Peruna for of and to protect from cli mate and disease, these wise and prudent sisters have found Peruna a never-falling safeguard. Dr. Hartman receives many letters from Catholic Sisters from all over the United States. A recommend recently received from a Catholic Institution ' In Detroit, Mich., reads as follows,: catarrh of the throat, with good results as the above letter testifies. From a Catholic Institution In Central Ohio comes the following recommend from a Sister Superior: "Some years ago a friend of our Institu tion recommended to us Dr. Hartman's I Peruna as an excellent remedy for the In fluenza, of which we then had several cases SISTERS OF CHARITY All Over the tolled States ate Pt-ro-na for Catarrh. A recommend recently received from a Cathollo institution in tha southwest reads as follows: A Prominent Mother Superior Sayi: "I can testify from experience to tha efficiency of Peruna as one of the very best medicines, and It gives me pleasure to add my praise to that of thousands who have used It. For years I suffered with catarrh of the stomach, all remedies prov ing valueless for relief. Last spring I went to Colorado, hoping to be benefited by a change of climate and while there a friend advised me to try Peruna. After using two bottles I found myself very much Improved. The remains of my old disease being now so slight, t consider myself cured, yet for a while I Intend to continue the use of Peruna. I am now treating another patient with your medicine. She has been elck with malaria and troubled with leucorrhoea. I have no doubt that a cure will be speedily effected." These are samples of letters received by Dr. Hartman from the various ord ers of Catholic Sisters throughout the United States. The names and addresses to these let ters have been withheld from respect to the Sisters, but will be furnished on re quest. One-half of the diseases which afflict mankind are due to some catarrhal de rangement of the mucous membrane lin ing some organ or passage of the body. A remedy that would act Immediately upon the congested mucous membrane re storing it to Its normal state, would con sequently cure all these dlspases. Catarrh is catarrh wherever located, whether It bo in the head, throat, lungs, stomach, kidneys or pelvic organs. A remedy that will cure it in one location will cure it in all loca tions. If you do not derive prompt and satis factory results from the use . of Peruna, write at once to Dr. Hart rasn. giving a full statement of your case, and he will be pleased to give you his valuable advice gratis.
