Born with a weak and sensitive stomach,
I suffered long with Indigestion and the
many Ills arising from It, general consti
pation, weakness of the bowels, together
with catarrhal Inflammation and rheuma

tremendous amount of suffering. I had

"Coming to the conclusion that I must
eat to live and not live to eat, I began
looking about to find the best way, and
among the many foods tested was Grape
Nuts. I did not use it as a general food
or exclusively, but simply ate It ones a
day, either at morning or night, on an
empty stomach and softened In warm cream
or milk, with a little sugar, bread and but

time I had tried every known remedy for
constipation and had to rely on the medi

Grape-Nuts food (which always digested)
had toned up my whole system and diges

constipation and bowel trouble disappeared
and I bade good by to all the cathartics.
"Now, after using Grape-Nuts two years,
I still think It delicious. My rheumatism

GASDT IS AFTER AX ELECTRIC LINES
Making an Effort to Interest Grand
GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Sept 28. (Spe
cial.) Sixteen representative' farmers from
the South Loup valley were In the city last
night and at a meeting of the Commercial
club of this city discussed with the mem
bers of the club various plans to secure the
construction of an electric line between
Grand Island and Gandy, running, Approxi
mately, due west from this city Into Buf
falo county, thence through Garner and
Snyder and the entire northern tier of Buf
falo county townships, striking the South
Loup valley in Custer county and follow
ing the valley to Gandy. The visitors were
representative farmers end stockmen of
that county and residents of Gandy, the
county seat of Logan county, where mer
chandise has to be hauled for a distance of
twenty to thirty-five miles to reach the
people. The gentlemen from that district
are very enthuslastlo over the project and
are confident that there would be enough
of freight and passenger traffic over cuch a
road to make the Investment profitable.
They are willing to encourage the Invest
ment by voting bends.
After a full discussion of the conditions
In the territory to be served by such a rail
road a committee of one from each town
ship to be traversed was selected to ascertain-
the probable sentiment as to voting
bonds, the extent to which bonds could be
voted, the osvessed valuation of each town
ship, the population to be served, the prob
able amount of shipping, such statistics to
be sent to the secretary of the Commercial
club, complied, and that the Commercial
club then take the matter up with the view
of reaching the necessary capital, or to call
another meeting of the committee and of
those Interested. President Ryan of the
Commercial club presided. The statistics
will be gathered and compiled by the secre
tary, A. F. Buechler.
SO RELIEF FOR PROPERTY OWNERS
Court Helds Liw Hrnarliua- Vacation
of Patts of City Is Invalid.
KEARNEY. Neb., riept. 24. (Special Tel
egram.) Judge Hoatetter of the district
court has Just handed down a decree which
Is of Importance not only to Kearney, but
to all cities of the same clnss In Nebraska.
The case was that of Charles L. Dundy
and Ira D. Marston against the City of
Kearney, In which the plaintiffs wanted
a tract of land which Is on the outaklrt
of the city set outside the city limits, as
they claim they derive no benefit from the
city government and therefore did not wish
to be taxed on some to support, the city
government. The legislature passed a law
however, empowering the city councils In
cities of thin rlets to so change the city
limits as to exclude outlying parcels or
ii .ita ol lunJ, and when this became effec
tive Messrs. Dundy and Marston appeared
before the council and asked that their
Und be set out. The council refused to
comply with their request and an appeal
was taken to the district court. In. his de.
cres Hostetter, says: "The court finds that
the act of the legislature under which this
action was brought Is unconstitutional In
tual the said act la broader than tha title
1.48 corner in the Out Room. We will be
have you present
yard. Tha most popular and the mot
and In violation of section 11, article III,
of the constitution of this state and con
fers no Jurisdiction on the court to enter
tain an appeal from the decision of the
city council of said city as provided therein,
and the court finds that the law is to
that extent unconstitutional." . , ..
If the plaintiffs had won, a large number
of other property owners would have asked
for the same privilege and therefore the
city would have been deprived of the rev

Dad Man In Charge.
NORTH PLATTE, Neb.. Sept. 28. (Spe
cial.) Donaker Kid, alias Charlie Everett,
waived preliminary hearing In the county
court yesterday and was accordingly bound
over to the district court for trial. Dur
ing the street fair which was conducted In
this city a few weeks ago by the Patter.
son-Brainerd company, Donaker Kid and
his pal committed a series of depredations.
The boys, both of whom were In the neigh
borhood of 20 years of age, stole a suit of
clothes, hired a horse and buggy to go to
Cody's ranch, and started away as fast as
they could. Because of the failure of the
horae and buggy's return with the hirers.
Lock, ther liveryman, became anxious, noti
fied the officers and they telephoned to the
near towns to look out for the boys. They
were apprehended at -.Maxwell, Neb., in
the evening, where they put the team in
the livery barn on account of a terrific
storm which came up. They were arrested,
brought back to North Platte and, on ac
count of the crowded condition of the Jail
of the county, they were confined with
another lad In a room on the second floor.
During the night these three boys dug
their way out through the brick Jail wall
and dropped to the ground. During the
next day they were hid by some of the
show people In the show cars. The officers
suspected that they were yet In the city
and went to the midnight 'train for the
east, upon which the refugees tried to es.
cape. A shooting affair occurred with the
result that one of tho refugees was
wounded, but he stayed on until taken oft
at Kearney. Donaker Kid escaped and was
not heard from for some time, when It
was learned that he was with the Pntter-son-Braloerd
company at Sioux City, la.
Requisition papers were made out and he
was arrested and returned. Ho la charged
with conversion as bailee.
