PUTTINO IT STRONG.
Bat Doesn't It Look Reasonable
This may be read as though we were put
ting It a little strong, because It Is gen
erally thought by Ui majority of people
that Dyspepsia In Its chronic form Is in
curable or practically so. But we havs
long since shown that Dyspepsia Is cur
able, nor Is it such a difficult matter as at
The trouble with Dyspeptics Is that
they are continually dieting, starving
themselves, or going to opposite extreme,
or else deluging the already overburdened
stomach with "bitters." "after-dinner
pills," etc., which invariably Increase the
difficulty even If in some cases they do
give a slight, temporary relief. Such
treatment of the stomach simply makes
matters worse. What the stomach wants
is a rest. Now, how can the stomach be
come rested, recuperated and at the same
time the body nourished and sustained.
This is a great secret and tills is also
the secret of the uniform success of
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. This Is a
comparatively new remedy, but its suc
cess and popularity leaves no doubt as to
The Tablets will digest the food any
way, regardless of condition of stomach.
The sufferer from Dyspepsia, according
to directions, is to eat an abundance of
good, wholesome food snd use the tab
lets before and after each meal, and the
result will be that the food will be di
gested no matter how bad your Dyspep
sia may he, because, as before stated, the
tablets will digest the food even if the
stomach is wholly Inactive. To Illustrate
our meaning plainly, if you take 1,800
grains of meat, eggs or ordinary food and
place it in a temperature of 98 degrees
and put with It one of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets It will digest the meat or eggs
almost as perfectly as if the meat was
enclosed within the stomach.
The stomach may be ever so weak, yet
these tablets will perform the work of di
gestion and the body and brain will be
properly nourished, and at the same time
a radical, lasting cure of Dyspepsia will
he made because the much-abused stom
ach will be given, to some extent, a much
needed rest. Your druggist will tell you
that of all the many remedies advertised
to cure Dyspepsia none of them have
given so complete and general satisfac
tion as Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and
not least In Importance in these hard
times Is the fact that they are also the
cheapest and give the most good for the
the Leghorn class, and out of the six en
tries he was awarded fivo premiums. This
was In competition with over 1,100 other
birds. He, of course, Is feeling pretty good
over It, and has many friends in and around
Mlnden who rejoice with him because we

time and labor to his birds and has one
of the largest and beat arranged chicken

sioner of the Burlington railroad, arrived In
this city this morning and tendered the
county treasurer of Buffalo county $1,442.27
for the taxes for 1904, but was refused by
Treamirer Troupe, as the taxes amounted
to $r..P4.5R. When the sum offered Was re
fused Pollard put the money bark Into his
pocket and left on his special train for
Mlnden. Officials of the treasurer's office
state that If the taxes are not paid by
February 1 executions will certainly be

MINDEN. Neb., Nov. 17. (SperlaU Tax
Commissioner Pollard of the B. & M... ac
companied by his witness, visited the
county treasurer today and made a tender
of the amount of taxes whlrh the railroad
company felt disposed to pay tinder the
new revenue law. The amount was counted
out in cash and tendered to the treasurer,
but was refused unless the whole amount
charged on the tax books was tendered. As
a result the railroad taxes were not paid.
Mr. Pollard, without naming them, stated
that he had made settlements with some
of the counties he had visited on the basis
of his own figures. The amount tendered
was $11.62!.fi0. and the amount which should
be paid Is $15,748.54. The amount of rail
road tax this year is Just a. few dollars
over $100 more than It was last year, for
the reason that while the valuation of rull
road property and the levy this year are
larger than last year yet the county levy
Is not so large by more than half, and in
nearly all the school districts the levys
have been largely decreased. The differ
ence In the railroad tax between this year
under the new law and last year under
the old law will not be enough to pay at

"I was fiat on my back In Cincinnati. It was after ten long, hard months on the road as advance agent for theater com
panies. I had to be up early and late, exposed to all kinds of weather; often soaking wet and chilled to the bone. My system
could stand It no longer. I caught a heavy cold and it settled on my lungs. Doctors dosed 111c us usual, but 1 was steadily
going to a consumptive's grave.
"An old actor friend recommended Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey. I tried it. Kelt better the first week. In two weeks
doctor said he needn't call again, to keep on taking 'Duffy's' mid I'd soon !e cured. And 1 nm cured; strong, husky, never
better In my life, and it took onlv four bottles. Have come through another season In perfect shape." C. PUTMON, care Bill

Duffy's Pure lUialt Whiskey
Consumption seldom attacks until the system Is run down and weakened by sickness, overwork, worry, exposure or In.
herlted tendencies. The secret of the marvelous success of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey in curing and preventing lung troubles
lies in the fact that It's the greatest slrengthener and health builder known to medicine. It not only checks the ravages ol the
disease itself, hut replaces the weakened, destroyed tissues: helps the stomach to more perfectly digest and assimilate food In
order that more, richer snd purer hlootl will come from It; and regulates nnd governs the heart's action, so that the circulation
will be strong and powerful, carrying health and vigor to every organ and part of the human body. The idea that a consump
tive's onlv chance for life Is to send him to Colorado or California to fret himself to death was effectually exploded at the
Medical Association's Convention, a few months ago at Atlantic City, where leading consumption specialists declared that t,he
onlv successful place to treat lung troubles was right at home, where the disease originated, and that Duffy's Ture Malt
Whiskey is the most effective means of fighting this awful scourge to the human race.
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey is absolutely pure and free from fusel oil the only whiskey recognized by the Government as a
medicine. It has been prescribed by doctors of all schools and sold by reliable druggists and grocers everywhere for over art
years. Sl.fiO a bottle. Every testimonial is published In good faith and guaranteed. Medical booklet free.

TRADER TALKS OF CRAFTING
Robert J. Osborn Confirms Statement tbat
Indians Are Duped.
GIVE NOTES FOR TWICE AMOUNT OF DEBTS
Declares Whisky Is Easy to Uet and
Kcd Men on the Wlnnehasso Res
ervation Are Demoral
ised by It.
One of the witnesses before the federal
grand Jury, now In session In this city, is
John Alum, one of the two licensed tiuders
of the Wln-.iebago Indian reservation. Asked
as to tho traders' side of the controversy
orlginutlng from tho investigations of
l'ather Schell, Mr. Alum said last evening:
'T'-.ere are two sides to the controversy
and 1 do not like to mix up In the matter.
However, there are but two licensed trad
ers on the Winneuago reservation. They
are Robert J. Osborn and myself. Aside
from us there are two or three Indian
tradeis In a small way. who are not re
quired to pay any license to trade on the
reservation. My dealings with the Indians
always have been friendly. We sell only
miscellaneous merchandise, no liquor at all.
The liquor Is all obtained off the reserva
tion, largely at Homer. It has not been my
practice to exact notes from the Indians.
The pln I follow Is to keep a separate ac
count with each Indian, ewch account being
kept In a separate book. I furnish the In
dian customer with a carbon copy of the
bill, which he keeps, and on pay day these
are checked up and If found correct the
bill is paid by the Indian direct to me. It
frequently happens that the debtor Indian
may have gone to Homer with his check
and paid a note there, thus leaving him
with very little, If any, money; at least not
enough to pay my bill. I have now on my
books about $1B,000 against the Indians.
"I do not wish to comment upon tka
methods by which the Indians are Induced
to give these notes, wherein lies all the
trouble. The general plun Is to get hold
of tho Indian, especially If he la In want of
a little ready money, and If he happens to
owe a bill to some Homer merchant, say
of J), he is expected to sign a note for $W.
secured by chattel mortgage on hla team
and wagon. He Is then given $1 or $2 In
cash, and it Is soon gone for whisky. How
he gets the whisky I do not know, but he
gets it. The collection of the note Is forced
on lease check day, with the threat of
taking his team from him. Unfortunately
the Indian will do almost anything for
whisky, and It Is by taking advantage of
his whisky' appetite that practically all of
the troubles origlnute. As a rule the In
dians are required to give a note for Just
about twice the amount of money they re
"I suppose some of these chattel mort
gages are filed, but many are not. I do not
know what the law is regarding the release
of the chattel mortgage, nor do I believe
the Indians are careful enough to see that
the chattel mortgage when paid off Is re
leased. "I believe from my own experience and
observation, the Indian Is naturally honest
and would pay If ho could If they did not
fall Into the hands of parties who will fur
nish them whisky money through thla not
giving process. Of course when their
money Is gone they cannot pay and we
legitimate traders, who must credit them
to get their trade, will suffer In conse
quence." Vrnanay f4leses Canadian hln.
