STOKM-SWEPt SOUTHERN NEBRASKA
presen led during the early days
of the week a most forcible Illus
tration of the devastating power
of a tornudo. Several counties
und many localities were Involved
in the wreck incident to the vagari
ous flight of several of those terri
ble manifestations of nature un
controlled, and it is manifestly
impossible that The Bee or any
other paper should undertake to
print in one Issue pictures of all
the damage that was done. The
Mumma farm, south of Hastings,
was selected as a place that would
afford typical evidence of a tor
nado's work, and there The Bee's
staff artist secured a series of pic
tures of the sort that has made
his work famous among good
Judges of newspaper photography.
A double page ot these will be
printed in the. next number, and
will afford an excellent idea of
the ruin wrought In a few seconds
of time by the tornado. that tore
through Southern Nebraska last
Sunday evening. This feature
alone is worth more than the entire
cost of the paper.

CONTRACTS MlhT NOT BE BROKEN
Grand Master Is laeered When He
Says that Inlon Men Most
Be Rdaeated Alone
DENVER, May 29. The first positive
declaration of a large labor body against
the sympathetic strike has been made by
the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen,
now In national convention in this city.
It was made In the form of a resolution,
which received unanimous approval by the
delegates, based upon sentiments expressed
In the annual address of Grand Master
Morrlssey, The portion ' of the address
which Inspired the resolution and whlsh,
when uttered by the grand master, aroused
ringing cheers of approval from those pres
ent, was as followe:
The question of Its ability to nrotect its
working agreement is now a prominent
factor In determining the responsibility of
a labor organization In the business and
employing world. The oraanlzntlon that
represents employes in making an arrange
ment that Is acceptable to them and shrinks
from responsibility when individuals' or
rivals disturb the peaceful relations be
tween employes and employers Is not of
the type that will command confidence In
our progressive civilization and the trend
of relations between capital and labor.
While the Question m' the. tirntectinn of
the labor contract Is in Its Infancy and
education of the great mass of the union
ists along these lines Is necessarily Flow,
still we predict that we shall see the time
when we will regard the contract breaker,
whether member or nonmember, with as
rnun contempt as we now do tho scan.
In the beneficial or Insurance department
the losses for death and disability that
were paid amounted to $1,670,790.42. Of these

Will Not Demand Higher Wattes.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 29. The building
trades of this city have taken Important
action - regarding ' demands of affiliated
unions for Increase of wages. By a resolu
tion adopted at ' the meeting the council
took the stand that henceforth it will not
sanction requests for increased pay until
such time as the further prosperity of the
city warrants such action. '
The effect of this action upon the build
ing trades will be very marked. Secretary
Tveitmoe, who introduced the resolution,
stated to tho members that continued agi
tation for higher, wages- except where war
ranted are likely -o -Influence property own
ers against maklt.g contemplated improve
ments and for that reason some assurance
should be given that no further demands
for advancement of wages would be made
until further prosperity should warrant the
Chicago Freight Handlers Aarree.
CHICAGO. May 29. The trouble between
the freight handlers and the railroads en
tering Chicago was virtually settled to
night. The management of the Lake Shore
road took the Initiative and made a propo
sition to their men which was accepted.
The men had demanded a wage Increase of
26 per cent. At a meeting tonight the
officials offered to con. promise with an In
crease that averages a little more than 4
per cent. After considering the matter for
several hours the men agreed to the prop
osition and each side signed the contract.
The new scale goes into effect June 1 and
is to be In effect for one year.
The men agree to give thirty days'
notice before going on strike during the ex
istence of the contract. The other twenty
three roads Involved In the 'difficulty, it Is
said, will endeavor to reach a settlement
with their employes on the same basis as
the Lake Shore agreement.
Textile Workers Go Oof.
PHILADELPHIA. May 29.-Although the
strike of the textile workers ot this city
for a flfty-flve-hour week was set for Mon
day, the suspension was practically inau
gurated at quitting time tonight. During
the day the employes of eight additional
mills stopped work before the closing hour,
making twelve mills already on strike. The
hands at one mill were locked out. Reports
received at the headquarters of the textile
workers up to midnight show that thirty
seven Arms out of nearly 500 in the city had
agreed to reduce the hours of the workers
from sixty to fifty-five a week. Members
of the textile workers executive commit
tee claim that the strike wtll be more gen
eral than the manufacturers believe. They
claim that fully 60,000 persons will refuse
to go to work on Monday unless their de
mands are granted.
Charles Harding, Thomas Bromley, Jr.,
and Frank Leake, representing the manu
facturers' association, In an Interview to
night said that It was a financial impossi
bility for the employers to grant the re
quest of the employes.

PARIS, May . -Marguerite Boyvenal of
Thelles, near Ban Quentln, who had been In
a cataleptic state since May 21, 18&3. awak
For some time past she had been suffer
ing from phthisis and It Is believed that
the effect of this malady on her system
conduced to her reawakening.
She moved her hand on Saturday for the
first time and groaned slightly.
When Dr. Chartier took hold of her atm
she said, "You are pinching me," and sub
sequently replied to questions by "Yes" and
"No." She was, however. In a state of
great weakness and gradually sank, dying
the day after awakening.
Marguerite Boyvenal's lethargy waa
caused by fright. She had had a child,
which died shortly after ita birth under
circumstances which led to the opening of
an investigation One day In May, 1883,
while Marguerite was ironing, a neigh
bor said to her: "The gendarmes are com
ing to arrest you."
Marguerite had a stroke of fits and grad
ually fell Into her long slumber.
In X&ni the girl was described as being
white as a statue and corpselike as a
mummy, her body wasted away to almost
a skeleton and her bones seeming to be
covered with parchment Instead of skin.
The body waa rigid and only the pulse
beats showed thalhe was alive.
Life was sustained by washing her body
In milk every day and pouring a few drops
of milk or spirits into the sleeper's mouth
through s reed. Many prominent physi
cians visited tha patient during her twenty

To catch cold In May is often more dan
gerous than to catch cold in Jnu.r
The first warm days of May are depress
ing ana tena to exaggerate the enervating
Influences of the cold.
If a pel son catches cold in January he Is
braced up by the Invigorating weather,
but to catch cold In May Is unfortunate, as
the weather lends to depress rather than
Invigorate. In this way It frequently hap
pens that to take cold In May Is far worse
than a winter cold. The May cold hangs
on week after week. The usual remedies
aeem to do no good. It produces a com
plete lassitude of the whole body. Rea.
puffy eyes, sneezing tnd fullness of the
nose. raw. red, sore throat, hoarseness,
want of appetite these are a few of tha
symptoms of a May cold.
But shouK a cold make its appearance
in spite of precautions, don't wait for it
to get settled. Begin to take Peruna at
the appearance of the first symptoms. A
few, doses of Peruna In the beginning will
do wonders. Don't take any quinine. It
win only make you more liable to take coM
again. Peruna cures a cold without dam
age to the system.
If you do not derive prompt and satis
factory results from the use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a
full statement of your case, and he will
