A member of the Lancaster county dele

Mr. A. C. Holmes, of Oneonta, N. T.,

his own experience, recently related, de
serves the attention of every working
man who has lost time and money on ac
count of sickness. Mr. Holmes said:
"Two years ago I had a aevere attack of

After an attack of the grip there la al

Often these are worse than the disease
itself and seem to baffle all efforts of phy

Chancey Warner, a member of the late
legislature from Lancaster county, was at
the capital today from the rural regions
aroqnd Waverly to look after that $2,000
appropriation made for the starving people
of Sweden, Norway and Finland. Warner
introduced the bill. He waa met here by
Hon. B. M. Stenberg of Omaha, tha vice

Coavlct Labor Debate.
The question of convict labor waa too
much for the Board of Public Lands and
Buildings todsy, and after hearing more
arguments on both sides, and after consid
ering the evidence t3 aome extent, the
board adjourned, to meet again tomorrow
afternoon to make a final settlement
From the action of the board today it
begins to look aa though Warden Davis
will lose out on his contract and the Lee
Broom and Duster company will get all the
convlcta it can use for the broom snd
duster business, though tomorrow a differ
ent front may be taken by some members
of the board. Member Mortensen moved
that Warden Beemer be instructed to al
low Mr. Davia a sufficient number of con
vlcts to conduct his button business. But
there waa no second to the motion. Mr.
Mortensen explained that Mr. Davis would
only require about ten or twelve men, but
the board preferred to wait until tomorrow
and then make a final report of the matter.
Mortensen feels sure that Mr. Davis will
be granted at least a few of the convicts.
He Is opposed to granting a monopoly of
the convict labor to any one firm or com
pany and he believes that ths board will
think the same way by tomorrow.

t looa Proves to Ba Most
FARNAM, Neb., April 17. (Special.)
The class of 1903, Farnam High school,
gave a banquet on the evening of April

absentees. State Superintendent Fowler
and County Superintendents Smith of Daw
son, Dobson of Frontier and Nell of Lin
coln were Invited guests.
A program was arranged consisting of
toasts and music The latter was rendered
by local talent and would not have been
unacceptable to the dainty, listening ears
of a city audience. The toasts were: "The
Publlo Schools of Farnam," which was
ably responded to by J. B. Kitchen, presi
dent of the school board, who, after warmly
weloomlng the guests of the evening, gave
a brief history of the school from its in

up to date; "Dawson County In 1903" was
responded to by Superintendent Claude

and the unique manner in which the first
teacher was secured, up to the present
time, with Its ninety districts, 138 teachers,
