The Phi Beta Kappa held forth at th

society and at 12 o'clock a reception was

The remainder of the day at the univer
sity waa spent in renewing old friendships
at class reunions and dinners. Tonight
, Judge Lincoln Frost spoke at Memorial
hall on "The Monroe Doctrine."
Among other things Judge Hastings said:

Improved or wholly done away with and
new ones substituted. Today the ruling
oonceptlon Is that such institutions are the
products of evolutions, are of the slowest

the evils connected with them are for the
most part removable only at the price of

Yesterday the college conferred upon
Oovernor Mickey the degree of doctor f
law, an honor that very much surprised
and pleased tho state executive. The gov
ernor has been a member of tha board for
eleven years and for eight years has been
lis president. The school this year has
wiped out Its Indebtedness, paid all the
current expenses and has $800 in its treas
ury. Embryo Lawyers May Fall.
It Is said several of the young men taking
the examination before the State Bar com
mission for permission to practice law in
cbraska will 'fall of their ambition this
car and will have to try again. When this
became known around the state house a re-
uest was made to the board for a copy of
he questions to be published after tne
commission concluded Its work. The re-
ucst was refused, two members of the
board holding that such a course waa not
only unprecedented, but the information
could not be given out without an order
f the supreme court, notwithstanding that
the records of the examination-are .public
records. The reason given by the two
members of tho commission was that the
publication of the questions , might assist
some student in the future to pass his
examination! by showing him upon what
ubjects to post himself before the exami
Another reason for the non-publication of
the questions, though not given by any
member of the board. Is the nature of some
of the questions. While along most sub-
ects the questions are said to be good ones,
long the line of constitutional law, some
of the applicants at least are wondering
what the definition of tha questions has
to do with practicing law in Nebraska,
Some ef these questions which the commis-
lon will refuse to give out are:

ssked that they be required to show cause
why they should not be declared In con
tempt for having suppressed a dep-isltlon
tsken before Notary Chapman. It was the
deposition of William Newton, which was
taken In Omaha at the Instance of O'Neill A
Gilbert on May 26.
Mr. Gilbert flb-d a sworn statement In re
sponse to the motion and affidavit of Mr.
Burr, showing that the deposition was
tsken on that day, but before witness could
sign it after It had been reduced to writing
the notary was called to Missouri by
the death of a relative; that Immediately
upon her return the signature was secured
and the deposition filed with the district
clerk of this county the day before Mr.
Burr submitted his motion and affidavit
showing it to have been suppressed.
Mr. Gilbert shows that he had spoken tc
Mr. Burr about the delay and that when
the deposition was sent to Lincoln the
notary also wrote Burr, so that the latter
at the time he made the affidavit and mo
tion, or at least at the time of presenting
the matter to the court, "knew, or ought to
have known, that the matters and things
herein set forth as the basis of securing
said order were absolutely false and un
true." Gilbert asks that he be found not to be
In contempt of court and that the Burr
affidavit and motion be stricken from the
flies as scandalous and as an unjust, un-
warranted and mallcloua attack upon de-
fendant and his counsel.
From his utterances outside of the files I
It was apparent that Gilbert was decidedly
mad about the Incident.
Fire Escapes for Asylum.
The State Board of Public' Lands and
Buildings met this afternoon and decided

bids will call for the spiral fire escapes.

ers for a conference. The high water In
Kansas City destroyed about 800 cars of
grain, valued at. over $200,000, that had
been shipped there from Nebraska. Most
of the grain had been inspected, but had
not been weighed out to the purchasers.
The question now is who did It belong to.
The commission men claim that It was not
their grain, because It had not been
weighed out to them, and the Nebraska
dealers claim it did belong to tho commis
sion men. Nearly every firm south of the
Platte will lose money If the commirslon
men refuse to stand for the loss. It was
thought, however, at the meeting tomorrow,
a compromise will bo effected that will be
advantageous to the Nebraska dealers.
Several cases have already been settled
with the commission men assuming most
of the loss. If a compromise is not effected
the courts will have to decide the case.

I auffered with ovarian troubles for nearly five years before I really knew what troubled me. By that time I waa o ill and
weaa mat i never eipecieu to recover, i unnerweni a paintui ana very expensive
hospital, but making up my mind I would suffer anv pain to get back my health.
sun telt wean, but the doctor said l would have my usual strength in a couple ot weeks. At tne ena 01 ten
months I found that I waa no better and then decided that l had enough of the doctors and would try some
thing else. Ai aeveral of my friends had used Wine of Cardui and had spoken very highly of it I decided to
try it. At first 1 felt no change and began to get discouraged, but after using three bottles I felt somewhat
better and so kept on. In two months 1 waa much stronger and in a short time 1 waa restored to my usual
Health ana strength.
I have since recommended Wine of Cardui to dor

enthusiastic in ita praise. You have my best wishes and 5'ix lUtfat't ' -)r w-ay "

Wine of Cardui has saved thousands of women from the danoera of the operating table. And it would have saved
iaa Taylor all her money and suffering had she gone to Wine of Cardui for relief before she had her unhappy experience
ith the dm-tor. To "have an fn-at!on" has Imvimn a rnmmnn expression todav. But a woman wants health badly
when she submits to an operation and it ii sad indeed to see how many are disappointed after going through the pain and dan
ger. You need not submit to bearing down and ovarian pains nor suffer the weakening drains of female troubles when such a
remedy as Wine of Cardui, ia offered you. The most successfully conducted operation aeldom brings permanent cure while Wine
of Cardui cures nineteen out of everv twentv cases. Be L'uided bv Miss Tavlor's experience. She shows you that for every Buffer
ing woman there is a cure can be taken in the privat'y of home for menstrual disorders, bearing down pains, nervousness, ovarian paint
and all the troubles that attack women from voutb to old age. This great remedy can be secured from any druggist at 11.00 a bottle and
taken in your home. Secure a bottle of Wine of Cardui today.
