HOW TO 1RKVKT CROIP, some Readiaar That Will Prove later- eetlaar to louna- Mothers How to Croup is a terror to young mothers and to post them concerning the cause, first aymp- tons and treatment. Is the object of this Item. The origin of croup Is a common cold. Children who are subject to It take cold very easily and croup is almost sure to follow. The first sympton ia hoarseness : this is soon followed by a peculiar rough cough, which Is easily recognized and will never be forgotten by one who ha heard it. The time to act Is when the child first becomes hoarse. When Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is freely given all tendency to croup will soon disappear. Even after the croup cough has developed It will pre vent the attack. There is no danker in giving this remedy, for It contains nothing Injurious. Prise steer Comes from Shelby. HARLAN. Ia., Dec.

(uo ye sale by Kuha C- NEW SUPREME COURT RULES Lawi Recently Effectire Bender Change in Praotioe Imperative. OVER THREE HUNDRED CASES FIRST TERM Members of Republican Stato Com mlltee Meet to Cheek Orer the Affairs of the Late Cam. pala-n. (From a Staff Correspondent.) DK3 MOINES. Doc. 9.-(8peclal.)--The long-deferred announcement of the new rules of the Iowa supreme court to conform to the new laws of the state was made to day. The rules were ' received from Iowa City, where Judge MacClaln had thein printed. The change In the rules wos made necessary by the fact that the last legisla ture passed a law requiring the court to sit practically all the time and to have a session every month In tho year, the plan being to have the decisions rendered as soon after submissions as possible. The most Important port of the new rules re lates to the terms. The court provides for three terms In the year, beginning In January, May and September, and each one divided Into four divisions of a month each. The first part of each period Is to be do voted to arguments and submissions and the last half to preparation of opinions. Cases shall be docketed as now for each term for the entire state, certain districts assigned to each period. The first assign ment has already been made by Clerk John C. Crockett, with the advice of Judges who are here, and the docket will run as fol lows: January 12 Cases from First, Twentieth, Third and Fourth districts. January 12 Cases from First, Twentieth, February 9 Fifth to Ninth districts, In clusive, March 8 Tenth to Fourteenth districts, mirt Seventeenth tn Nineteenth districts. Anril 5 Fifteenth. Sixteenth and Kli-hteentb districts. This will be the general order ,of pro cedure of the districts at each term. It Is figured out that this will give about 350 1 cases to the first term. It Is provided that the court shall hear and consider these cases and determine ." them promptly. In other respects the rules of the court are not materially different from the rules that have been in force for years. State Committee Meets. Chairman R. JL Spence of the republican state central committee arrived In the city this morning from Mount Ayr, and was met by members of the executive and finance committees, consisting of George C. ' Scott of Sioux City, S. X. Way of Wesley, Charles W. Phillips of Maquoketa and W. P. Fitch- patrlck of Nevada. The purpose of the meeting was to have these committees go over the books of the chairman and his ac counts during the last state campaign and to check up on 'the same. This was pro vided for at the. time of the organization of the state committee at the time of the republican state convention In July last. It Is the first time members of the republican committee heve - got together since the ! close of the campaign, as most of the mem bers have been busy In court. . Examine Xorraal Departments.

Already the politicians of Southern Iowa are getting action In regard to the pros pective vacancy on the district bench by reason of the resignation of Judge Parrish of Leon. When Judge Parrish was a candi date there was a large field, every county In the district having a candidate, except counties already -having Judges. William E. Miller of Bedford has the distinction of having received on the seventy-fifth ballot of the convention a majority of the votes. but before It could le counted, there was changes that deprived him of the nomtna - tlon. This record Is believed to give him great prestige In the race. H. K. Evans of Cordon has been brought out as an active candidate. He, also, was a candi date for the nomination. There are rumors that T. C. Hardilnger of Clarke county may also be a candidate, but It Is not yet announced. The governor will appoint. Iown Fair Dnte Unchanged.

Dates were arranged for all the state fairs In the midland region. Object to Assessment. The Great Western Railroad company Is making objection to the assessment of its new line. The Milwaukee tried to pre vent taxation of its southeastern cut-off because It was not In operation at the time of the making of the assessment and claimed that a right-of-way la not a rail road until It is operated. The Great West ern makes the same claim with regard to some of Its lines. Mayoralty Candidate Quits. The campaign for mayor of Des Molncs for next spring's election begun some time ago, with three active candidates In the field Mayor James Brenton, Ex-Mayor John McVkker and Police Judge Ia J Silvara. The campaign has already warmed up surprisingly and much money Is being spent, although the campaign Is several months off. Today Judge Silvara announced his withdrawal on the ground that the campaign, to be successful, would be too expensive for aim and because of the disagreeable nature of the campaign already started. It ia expected that others will enter the race. Kiowa me World Over - For Its wonderful cures Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and Colds. It cures or no pay. For sale by Kuhn It Co.
