Bart Coaaty Farmers Have Interest
la Meeds. at Oakland.
OAKLAND, Neb., Jon. 28.-Speclal.)
Friday's session of the Burt County Farm
ers' Institute proved as Interesting- and was
aa well attended as the previous day.
The first toplo discussed was "8mut Poi
soning," by Dr. V. Schaeffer, In which all
were Interested and many questions were
asked. 'The Selection of the Duiry Cow"
was the toplo of State Lecturer C. II. Ilin
man of the agricultural experimental sta
tion, and was well received and proved of
great Interest to all farmers.
D. P. Ashburn, state speaker, then spoke
on "Corn Cultivation," and made many
valuable suggestions along this line.
Then followed the election of officers for
the ensuing year, which resulted as fol
lows: Andrew White, Lyons, president;
George F. Smith, Craig, vice president; C.
W. Babcock, Lyons, secretary and treas
urer. The Oakland Male quartet opened the aft
ernoon session with a song, followed by
. C. II. I Unman, who discussed "Principles
of Feeding." Much Interest In this sub
ject was manifested by the many questions
asked. "The Selection and Care of Seed
Corn" was the next topic for consideration
and was handled by D. P. Ashburn, who
gave the farmers many valuable pointers
on this subject. "The Hand Cream Sepa
rator," by C. II. Hlnman, was very valu
able, and he pointed out the necessity
of great care In handling milk and cream.
It was one of the most Interesting topics
of the institute.
The evening session was opened by a
y solo by Mrs. W. II. Myers, followed by a
short, well rendered address by County
Superintendent Eugene? Brookings.
"Fads In Education" was ably discussed
in a faper by Miss Ida V. Colson. Assist
ant State Superintendent E. C. Bishop was
present and addressed the audience on
"Our Present Rural School System and
How-to Better It," which proved of great
- Interest. 'The School Premises and Their
Influence," by Prof. W. II. Myers, princi
pal of the Oakland schools, was very ln-
terestlng. He made a plea that our school
3 yards be beautified and our school rooms
r made more pleasant.
This closed the most successful Institute
ever held In Burt county. The Interest was
Intense throughout the entire session, and
the attendance so large that at times peo
ple were unable to gain admittance to the
opera house.
BLAIR. Neb., Jan. . (Special.) The
first session of the Blair Farmers' Institute
was held on Wednesday and Thursday of
this week In the county court room. The
Wednesday afternoon session was opened
Toy an address on "Feeding Baby Beef," by
Joseph Wing of Mechanlcsburg, O., and was
followed by "Poultry on the Farm," by
Miss Mary L. Smith of Addlson,IIch., and
"Sheep Feeding in Nebraska," by Watson
Tyson of this county. The evening session
, was given to "The Farm Home," by Miss
y Smith, and "Notes on European Travel,"
by Mr. Wing.
Thursday morning's session was opened
Any Man Over Fifty.
Tou can Interest any man over fifty year
of age in anything that will make him feel
better, because while be may not as yet
have any positive organic disease ha n
longer feels the bouyancy and vigor of
twenty-five nor the freedom from aches
and pains he enjoyed In earlier years, and
he very naturally examines with Interest
any proposition looking to the improve--Jment
and preservation of his health.
"He will notice among other things that
la stomach of fifty is a very different one
from the stomach be possessed at twenty-
five. The greatest care must be cxerclsea
as to what Is eaten and how much of It.
and even with the best of care, there will
be Increasing digestive weakness with ad
vancing years,
A proposition to perfect or Improve the
digestion and assimilation ef food is on
which Interests not only every man of fifty
but every man, woman or child any age,
because the whole secret of good health,
good blood, strong nerves, is to have a
stomach which will promptly and thorough
ly digest wholesome food because blood,
nerves, brain tissue and every other con
stituent of the body are entirely the pro.
duct of digestion, and no medicine or
"health" 'food oan possibly create pure
blood or restore shaky nerve, when a weak
stomach Is replenishing the dally wear and
tear of the body from a mass of ferment
ing half digested food.
No, the stomach Itself wants help and In
no round-about way, either; It. wants direct
unmistakable assistance, such as Is given
by one or two Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
after each meal.
These tablets curs stomach trouble be-
rauseahelr use gives the stomach a chance
to rest and recuperate, one of Stuart's
Pyspspsla Tablets contains digestive ele-
mnU sufficient to digest 1.000 grains of
ordinary food such aa bread, meat, eggs.
The plan of dieting Is simply another
name for starvation, and the use of pre.
paled foods end new fangled break
fast foods simply makes matters worse, as
any dyspeptlo who has tried them knows.
As Dr. Bennett says, the only reason I
can Imagine why Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets are not universally used by everybady
wno is irouDiea in any way with poor
digestion is because may people seem to
think that because a medicine la advertised
or sold In drug stereo or Is protected by a
trade mark must be a humbug, whereas as
a natter of truth any druggist who Is
observant knows that 8tuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets have cured more people of lndlges
lion, heart burn, heart trouble, nervous
prostration and run-down condition gener
ally than all the patent medicines and
doctors prescriptions for stomach trouble
by "Selection of the Dairy Cow," by C. It
Hlnman of the experiment station at Lin
coln, Neb., followed with "Selection and
Care of Seed Corn," by D. T. Ashburn ef
Gibbon, Neb., and "Evolution of the Texns
8teer," by Samuel W. Stewart of this
county. The afternoon was occupied by Mr.
Hlnman, Mr. Ashburn snd County Treas
urer E. Z. Russell with papers on "Prin
cipals of Feedlnx," "Corn Cultivation" and
"Hog Industry," respectively.
Thursday evening rinsed the session and
an address on "Agriculture" was given by
Chancellor E. B. Andrews of the State uni
versity. The cold weather was very severe
on both days, but the attendance was good
and beyond the expectation of those In
ch.-rg! of the meeting:. The lectures and
papers read on the various topics were well
received, and expressions of appreciation
for this first session held at Blair Were
heard from farmers from all over the
county. A good attendance of women was
present at each session, and the courtroom
was filled to hear Mr. Andrews on the last
The mnnagers nre well pleased with the
result of this session and nn extra effort
will be made to prepare for next year's
meeting, and an elaborfate program was
promised to the farmers at that time.

Attorneys Hart Intll February 4 to
File Briefs and Revise
WASHINGTON, Jan. 28. The Investiga
tion of protests against Senator Smoot of
Utah retaining his seat In the United
States senate was concluded today by the
committee on privileges and elections, and
when a report Is drafted by the committed
the investigation, will pass. to the whole
senate. One ' question of great moment
which will be fought over on the floor of
the senate Is whether a two-thirds vote
or a majority of the senate Is required to
expel a member. Mr. Tayler. counsel for
the protestants, holds that a majority vole
will suffice, In the same manner that . a
majority vote will prevent a senator from
first taking Ills seat. It will be several
weeks before the committee will be able to
report. The committee allowed counsel
until February 4 to revise their arguments
and file written briefs. Only one session
of the committee was held today.
Mr. Worthlngton, counsel for Senator
Smoot, concluded his argument and Judge
Tayler closed the case for the protestants,
Mr. Worthlngton closed with the state
ment that a great deal has been said about
the matter of the protection of the home,
which was said to be the real reason for
the prosecution of Senator Smoot. "If this
Is true, I cap tend," said Mr. Worthlngton,
"that Mr. Smoot should retain his seat, be
cause It has been shown that he has coun
seled nothing but good, and Gentiles who
voted for him did so because they knew he
believed In upholding the laws of th land
and that he led a pure life."
Judge Tayler, In closing the arguments,
made no effort to follow any particular line
of argument, but he declared that Mr.
Worthington had misinterpreted his re
marks on the subject of revelations. He
stated his position anew, but followed prac
tically the same line as In his opening
statement of the case. Mr. Worthlngton
had talked at length of the effect of the
manifesto and Judge Tayler declared that
divine order to have been th result of th
"politicians club," the manifesto having
been Issued at a time when the country was
stirred by the Roberts Investigation. He
devoted nearly his entire time to answering
Mr. Worthlngton. No new arguments were

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28,-The Gridiron

with a dinner at the New Wlllard tonight
which was attended by 250 guests. Includ
ing th president, members of his official
family, representatives of th courts, th
senate and house and the army and navy,
aa well aa men of prominence In literary,
sclentlflo and business worlds.
While the anniversary was recognised
In making Major John Carson president
of th club and In the production of a
souvenir which told the story of a score
of years of successful dining, the dinner,
like all others of this famous organisation
of Washington correspondents, dealt with
present events which were treated with
th usual levity and burlesque and satir
ised, while th prominent guests were
roasted In th good natured and witty
way that makes Gridiron dinners so en
joyable. Th presence of Mr. Roosevelt afforded
an opportunity to make pointed allusions
to doings of the administration and views
of the chief magistrate. The Inaugura
tion of Major Carson aa president with a
rough rider accompaniment and a refer
enc to the charge of the prealdent's regi
ment at Santiago, was managed by a
khakl-clotbed band which played "There'll

Matter of lf-GoTeroaieot In Men
tioned and a Little Political
Illsensalon Follows la
the Meeting.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 18. Secretary Taft
made an argument today before the house
committee on ways nnd means In favor of
the Curtis bill reducing the duty on sugar
and tobacco from the Philippines. He con
tended that as the Philippines belong to
the United Stales, thereby Imposing a sa
cred trust on this government. It la our
duty to establish and maintain th best
possible conditions there.
"Certainly," ho said, "the present status
of the Islands, so far as our relations to
them are concerned, will remain the same
throughout the present generation and
probably longer."
With this In view, he maintained, It would
be as Just to establish a tariff between
the states of Ohio and Pennsylvania as
between the United States and the Phil
ippines. Ultimate free trade would have
to come between the islands and the United
States. Secretary Taft asserted that con
gress had already enacted a measure which
was eminently unfair to the Islands. "You
have declared .that In 1906 American bot
toms shall carry everything that Is shipped
between the United States and the Phil
ippines both ways. It Is possible th
house of representatives or the senate can
Impose on these people a domeetio policy
with reference to the carrying of goods,
snd yet withhold the opportunity of mar
kets for these goods?
"No, sir, I am not ntl'.-npr to admit It. I
do not think congress will be so unjust
and the peoplo here representing special
Interests may as well put their house In
order. The American people are not going
to allow Interference with the policy that
Is going to do this country honor."
Williams In Debate.
This policy. Secretary Taft said, was
settled at the last election. The demo
cratic . members from the country might
not agree with him on this point.
Mr. Williams (Miss.), the minority floor
leader, asked the secretary If It were not
the republican policy to give the Islands
ultimate Independence. The secretary
affirmed this, stating that such would be
the case when the people of the Islands
were capable of self-government.
"Self-government as the American under
stands It, or the Filipino understands It?"
ssked Mr. Williams.
"I doubt if they ever reach the self
governing capacity of the Americans," the
secretary replied.
"Well," asserted Mr. Williams, "there Is
not so horribly much difference between
you and tho democrats. You believe In
granting self-government when the people
are ready and we believe In fixing a date
for their Independence."
Secretary Taft Yes. that is practically
It. Whenever they reach the condition
where they have a reasonable public opin
ion which may be relied: upon to restrain
radicalism; when Inter-island communica
tion has been established, and when con
ditions generally have become settled
then, If they desire independence, give It
to them. If they don't; If they desire a
bond which might become sweet by coming
Inside our tariff wall, that might be con
sidered. Mr, Williams Even then you will make
them a self-governing colony?
Secretary Taft Yes, sir.
Mr. Williams remarked that the repub
lican position at first was that we were
to keep the Islands forever.
Stockman Tells of Troubles Throaffh
Actloas of Railroad.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 28. Murdo McKen
aie, an extensive cattleman of Colorado and
Texas, complained before the senate com
mittee on Interstate commerce today of
Inequalities, discrimination and poor ser
vice on the part of the railroads In the
matter of the transportation of cattle. He
cited Instances of delay in shipments to
the markets, saying that such delays often
meant the loss of tl a head. He admitted
that shippers had protection under ex
isting law, but said that In most cases
the cost of legal proceeding would be
greater than the value of the stock. He
said the cattlemen want power given to
the Interstate Commerce commission not
only to fix rates, but to regulate tho char
acter qf service.
In continuing the statement begun by
him yesterday Judge 8. H. Cowan, repre
senting the southwest cattlemen, took up
the question of railroad rates on cattle
shipments. He said that there had been a
gross increase since 1S98, the average in
crease In shipments from Texaa points
being 84 cents per 100 pounds.
Questioned by Senator Elklns whether
there had been a corresponding Increase
In the price of beef, the witness replied
that th reply to that question would de
pend upon th viewpoint.
"To th man who buys beef ther has
been an Increase," he said, "but to the
man who sells there has been a decline.
Judge Cowan answered that a commis
sion would be Just as competent to adjust
rates as were the railroad traffic, men, be
cause the data on which rates must be
based ware as available to one man as to
'But." suggested Senator Elklns, "th
consolidation ef railroads destroys com
petition." To which Judge Cowan assented
most heartily, saying that was th point
of his contention. He claimed that through
Its decision the supreme court of the United
States practically had repealed the third
and fourth sections of the Interstate com
merce law relating to preferences.

Eaperor William Would Carry Out Plan
for Exchange of Instructors.
Approves Idea In General, bat 9aa
It Hns Some Dimmit Phases
Which Most Be Overcome.
BERLIN, Jn. 2S. Emperor William has
directed t lie ambassador of the United
States, Bame gpeel; von Sternburg. to lay
before President Roosevelt In official form
the suggestion of an exchange of profes
sors between Germany and America that
the emperor mentioned to Ambassador
Tower on New Year's day. The ambassa
dor, who sailcl on the Kaiser Wllhelm der
Grosse January Z. only carries an outline
of the projtct which the president will be
asked to approve and co-operate in making
a working plan.
The impcro:- has invited several German
professors to present him with their ideas
on the subject. Prof. Adolph Harnack,
one of tho.xe Invited, writes in the l'reus
slsche Jalirhueeher that the great schol
ars of the middle ages were not tied fast
to any one country. They lectured at
Naples, Bologna. Paris, Cologne and Ox
ford avid their students followed them.
Prof. Harnack explains the advantage to
students of spending part of their period of
study abroad. An exchange of students,
he adds, necessarily suggests an exchange
of professors. Only a few students can
now have the advantage of study abroad,
but larger numbers will get that advan
tage when the professor himself goes
abroad to lecture. He refers to Lord
Kelvin, Sir William Ramsay and Nanscn,
the explorer, as having lectured in Berlin.
Prof. Max Mueller, Prof. Harnack ulo
points out, came to Strassburg lo give
lectures while retaining his Oxford pro
fessorship, and adds that Prof. Gregory of
Leipzig Is American by birth, and a pro
fessor at a German university, and has
glvan a course of lectures In America.
Wonld Have Long; Visits.
The simplest means to inaugurate pro
fessorial Interchanges, according to Prof.
Harnack, Is to invite distinguished pro
fessors from abroad to give courses of four
to eight lectures. But this Is not enough.
The best thing, if it can be done. Is to
call for an entire six months'- tour, or even
longer. In doing so, of course, no country
will Import a professor when It has a bet
ter one at home; it will always be best to
let th students hear the language of the
literature and economic and social affairs
of another country from a professor of
that country. No amount of industrious
study will give German students the In
sight into these things that we can
get from a native of America. It is
of all the civilized states the most remote
for Germany in space, but Intellectually
the nearest and most closely related.
"In exchanging , professors," continues
Prof. Harnack, "we think In the first In
stance of America. Harvard and Berlin
are already negotiating a plan and will
have to begin with caution , and within
modest Uirjlts. If the idea is sound it
will then grow of Itself. Difficulties will
have to be overcome, like the six months
tours beginning and ending at different
dates, and no university will be readily
willing to Jet a favorite professor off for
even a short time. But the difficulties are
not insurmountable. Distance hardly
counts any longer. The conviction that
International duties have arisen for men of
science, who must carry the plan to suc
cess, will aid In disseminating, leavening
and strengthening the bond of fraternity."

Basket Ball Team from Sanflower
State Suffers Defeat.
LINCOLN, Neb., Jan. 28. (Special Tele
gram.) Kansas University was defeated to
night at basket ball by Nebraska Wesleyan
in the Wesleyan gymnasium, the Metho
dists annexing the long end of a score
standing 62 to 37. The Jayhawkers ex
celled slightly In passing the ball, but
Wesleyan threw her goals with better ac
curacy, in which department of the con
test the Jayhawkers were outclassed. Cap
tain Lowell and White did the wuir work
for Wesleyan, while W. J. Miller, the agile
center on the Kansas five, scored more
than half of the points credited to his
team. Lowell's free goal throwing was
particularly spectacular, ten of Wesleyan's
points resulting from his efforts. Kanaas
