"People have often asked me how I man
aged to keep ao well, for although out In
nearly all kinds of weather, and traveling
considerably, I have no aches nor sickness.
My one answer has been., that Instead of
waiting until I am sick In bed and forced
to stop work for a while,, whenever I feel
eut-of-aorts the least bit, , I 'take Palne'a
Celery Compound, which keeps me well and
strong. It la a. great deal better i ray

well, rather than to wall "for 'sfekness and

CHIEF DONAHUE HAS PLANS UNDER COVER
Authorities far that Recovery of Mrs,
Knla-tit's Badly Heeessarr

"Tou may say that the lines are closing
In about Knight and we expect to have him
In i cell bef or many days," said Chief
Donahue yesterday. "This man tin.
doubtedly': Is watching' the newspapers and
It would spoil the capture to let our plans
become known. However, I feel more than
hopeful that the murderer will be in cue-
tody shortly. Once that Is accomplished,
I am satisfied the remainder of the story
will be worked out. While It Is Important
ws should hsve the body In order to secure
conviction, It Is by no means necessary.
Without the body we should be driven to
the necessity of producing more and
stronger evidence than we now possess,
but I am sure this could be accomplished."
The search for the body of Mra. Knight
haa been practically abandoned by the po
lice. It Is still the general opinion among
the detectives that the woman was burled
and not thrown In the river, -hut they
reason along metaphysical lines, arguing
that the man wished to dispose of his wife
for once and for all and would prsfer to
put the corpse under ground rather than to
thrust it into the Missouri. Tney are
born out In this by the still missing spade.
Meat aad Boys Searching-.
Idle men and boys are conducting a cur
sory hunt for th body along the river op-
posit North Omaha and morbid crowds
have ransacked the Knight cottage for
souvenirs, repeatedly breaking the padlocks
with which .the police secured the doors.
Public Interest remains strong in tb case,
but there appears to be a lull in th devel
opments and the Omaha police apparently
are waiting. for something and that Is the
arrest of Frank E. Knight.
Without betraying any of the inner work
ings of th "front office," it may ba said
that th pollc of Cheyenn and other west,
ern cltlea are not entirely alone in watch.
lng for the murderer. In more than on
city representatives of the Omaha police
are re-enforclng the local sleuths. The
lmpotency of the Cheyenne police to take
charge of a much wanted and much adver
tised man when he walked under their
noses Is responsible tor these extra efforts
on the part of tb Omaha-force.

STRAWBERRY SEASON IN SWING
Ber'rlea of tapertov Qnalttr Come
from this Booth Earlier
Th strawberry season In Omaha Is now
in full swing. Peopl who have been on th
Omaha market evr since It was started
say that the Season this year is three
weeks earlier than ever before. This Is
owing to favorable weather In the south
and also to th healthy condition ot th
plants. ' Th berries that hav arrived so
far are said to be better than usual for so
early, lnthe year and present prospect r

Thursday knight when . th car arrived and
'they. were all, sold and disposed of before
7 o'clock the next .morning. - Wholesalers
consider this, a good Indication of th big
demand that will b experienced .her this
season. They sold at wholesale for 3.50
per twenty-four-quart case, which enables
grocers to retail them at 17 cents a box.
Friday a car ' ot berries arrived from
Texas,- but they were also quickly dis
posed of at the same price as th Missouri
berries and there wa very llttl difference
In the quality th stock.
It Is thought that th market will be
well supplied from this. time on and. of
course,' aa the aeason advancea prices will
naturally decline, A retail of 17V cents,
thourh. in the middle of Aorll 'is consid
ered very reasonable,' and consumers so far
have been buying freely.
Cuban pineapples is another line which
is growing in popularity in this market.
A carload Is now. being offered on th mar
ket and 1 selling rapidly. Two or three
years sgo Cuban pines were considered
very inferior and in fact Omaha wholesale
fruit men had a hard time to find a market
for th stock that waa shipped her. A
wondertul Improvement has taken place in
the last year, so that now the Cuban pin
la considered th closest rival of the
Florida pine.. .'..,
