If we can present to you a plan whereby you can secure perfect
health and be started on the road to it at our risk will you consider-it?
We have no remedy to exploit no drugs to prescribe. Our plan is
sane, sensible, scientific diet. And, mind you. our way to health is a
pleasant one. You do not sacrifice the good things of life.
Let us tell you about it. Let us send you the advance sheets of our
book, "The Battle Creek Idea." It gives in clear, simple language the
history of the great dietetic work done at the greatest health institution
in the world. It tells how you whether ailing or only half well can
be restored to vigorous, abounding life.
Write for the book today. Every day of perfect health you miss is
gone forever. And every day without perfect health means opportuni
ties lost, pleasures lost, business lost. You know this 1
And remember we prove to you the truth of our claim. So write
today. Next week you may be on the road to abiding health.

"Ills Highness the Bey" at the Boyd.
Without too rudely shocking familiar tra
ditions of simple musical satires, the two
Chicago university students who produced
"His Highness the Bey" have given to the
public a most amusing and laughable Uttle
affair. The piece was given In Omaha for
the first time yesterday afternoon and
evening at the Boyd and falr-slied au
diences greeted it. The continuous roar of
laughter and rounds of applause was com
ment enough as to the popularity of the
play with those who saw It. The little play
has been introduced as typically Chlcagoan
and perhaps that Is It. The Hey bears
many Chicago earmarks, chief of which is
his classical name, Mr. Louie Wurtzle
heimer. His highness must not be blamed
for wearing the purple, for the honors were
thrust on him, he being caught In an un
guarded moment In some remote corner of
the orient where a bey had Just been lost
and whose royal pipe, crown, robe and
other little perquisites of Turkish, sov
ereignly were fairly pining for a master.
Herr Wurtslnheliner, originally from Kan
kakee after coining from Germany, re
luctantly yields to the pressure of Interna
tional solicitation to ascend the throne and
he does so with uneven tread until his eyes
chance to fall upon about eighteen of the
most beautiful heritages wTilch the missing
ruler has left to him. Then he comes to
and adjusts himself to these soothing sur
roundings with amazing aptitude. Inci
dentally Mr. Wnrttlchelmer takes his new
friends Into a little domestic secret which
he had been treasuring up In his mind for
his, own. He had originally married the
snake charmer in a side show, so no one Is
surprised at his magnanimity In consenting
to preside over the social end political af
fairs of a Turkish province.
rhll W. Teters is the bey and he keeps
his audience laughing all the time and that
is the purpose of the play. He Is backd
up well by Al Denier as the Russian am
bassador and Justin J. Cooper as caliph of
Harran. The bevy of girls Is as attractive
as those of their pretended functions might
be supposed. Cora Reach Turner as an
American heiress. Mahlo MeCane as a
southern belle ensnared In the harem and
V. H. Thompson as a war correspondent
display good talents as vocalists. The en
tire company does good work.
Vaudeville at the Crelarhton Orphenm.
The second week's bill at the Orpheum
Is a trifle more varied than Its predeces

The opening act Introduces three colored
entertainers of more than common ability
Miss Harper. Mr. Desmond and Miss
Bailey according to the bill; one fat, one
lean and one quite black, all good. They
made a hit for fair last night. Another
act that weit like wildfire with the Sunday
evening audience was the Messenger Boys'
Trio, or rather one end of It. Willie How
ard Is a comedian of ability already, and
should develop Into a top-liner. His Imi
tation of Joe Welch is better than Welch.
The others sing well. I-ew Wells has some
new Jokes In his "talk," and plays the i
saxaphone very well. The Wilton brothers
are clever athletes, doing soma fine work
on the horizontal bars, with a lot of funny
acrobatics mixed In. Eatellta doesn't sing
as good2as she looks, ajid she sings well, too.

DEMOCRATS IN A DILEMMA
Result of Eepublican 8t! ConTention
LetTfS Thm Adrift.
TO ENDORSE LETTON AND REGENTS
One Ronrhon War Horse Would as
Soon Vote for Antl-rorporntlon
Republicans as t online
to Vote for Popallats.
(From a Start Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Sept. IT. (Special.) The dem
ocrats will hold their convention Tuesday
to name a county ticket and select dele
gates to the state Convention to be held the
day following. A number of the wards held
caucuses last night, and In the Seventh
resolutions were adopted commending the
republicans of the state for adopting reso
lutions demanding the regulation of rill
roads, and claiming the same has always
been a populist contention. It Is likely
the populists of this county will not go to
the trouble of holding a county convention,
as It would be Impossible for them, without
the old reliable Tibbies, to get a corporal's
guard to attend such a convention.
That the democratic state convention will
follow the example cited and endorse the
republican state platform and go It one
better by endorsing the republican candi
dates Is possible, but, of course, not proba
ble. A Lincoln democrat who Is really
sincere in desiring the regulation
of the railroads of the state, said the
best thing the democratic state convention
could do would be to commend Governor
Mickey and Treasurer Mortersen for their
work ns members of the state board of
assessment, and to cemmend Norrls Brown
for his work as attorney general, and to
top It all off by condemning the Union Pa
cific and Burlington railroad for not pay
ing their taxes. Then, by endorsing Com
missioner Letton and the candidates for
regents nominated by the republicans, a
real movement for reform would have
been accomplished by both parties, and
the fight would be the people, united,
against the corporations. He thought that
after voting for populists so long the dem
ocrats could not do better than vote this
year for the antl-corporatlon candidates In
the persons of the republican nominees.
Other democrats, however, will Insist on
going through the formality of nominating
party candidates and adopting a platform
with more rhetoric than that adopted by
Echoes of State ConTention.
Lancaster county republicans have not
yet "come out" of It. but are still flghttna
over their scrap pulled off In the late re
publican state convention. C. S. Allen, a
member of the Board of Regents of the
State university, came out first In a signed
communication in which he took the people
of Lincoln to task for not standing by John
H. Ames In better form when the latter
was before the convention as a candidate
for supreme Judge. This morning Dr. Fin
ney, one of the delegates, retaliated over
his own signature by taking Judge Ames
to task for trying to vote the delegation
for a corporation candidate, after he laid
down in the fight. Dr. Finney thinks the
action of the delegation In splitting up In a
fight was the best thing that could have
happened and that It will prevent In the
future the naming of delegates who can be
pitched over Into some other camp like so
many cnttle when a local candidate Is
through with them.
Another Democrat for Governor.
A number of democrats In Lancaster
county are busy Just now In running P. E.
McKlUlp of Humphrey for governor, even
though the convention Is a year from now.
They are talking McKlUlp because of tho
splendid showing he made against Con
gressman McCarthy last year and of the
fact that he secured all but three votes in
his home precinct against his opponent. It
Is understood here that McKlUlp would
prefer this time to take a throw at the
governor's chair than to tackle the con
gressional fight a second time. It Is said he
can have the latter nomination without op
position, but bis friends are going to Insist
that he make the race for governor.
It Is claimed that Fred' Abbott of Colum
bus, nominated for regent of the univer
sity by tbe republicans, will secure more
democratic votes than any republican nomi
nee. This because Mr. Abbott Is an old
university boy and the editor of a news
paper. A democratic newspaper man was
tn Lincoln many weeks before the repub
lican state convention urging the nomina
tion of Abbott and he Is authority for the
statement that Abbott will receive much
democratic support. Whether the demo
cratic editors will be strong enough to get
the democratic stnte convention to endorse
him is another question.

Sewer Bond Proportion to Go Before City
MATTER OF GREAT ItoPQRTANCE TO CITY
Plan Novr la to Include Whole System
in One Election and Ask
Voters to -Authorise
This evening when the city council meets
the sewer matter will aga.ln be taken up
The ordinance accepting the plans of An
drew Rosewater will be passed, and it is
expected that a general sewer ordinance
will be introduced. This ordinance must
define the sewers It is proposed to build,
specifying the streets and alleys as nearly
as possible. There Is to be no attempt
made to vote on a portion of the sewers,
but the whole Issue of bonds allowed by
law, $260,000 will he brought before the
people. By doing this the city authorities
think that there will be less opposition
from those who consider that the packers
and stock yards should build the Mud creek
sewer. With an enlarged sewer system
which will practically effect the entire city
the chances are that opposition which was j
so manifest at one time will be nearly If
not Quite overcome.
It Is not expected that any members of
the council will be opposed to having the
people vote the entire amount at once.
These officials declare that with the mat
ter disposed of the money will be available
at any time and that the work of .build
ing larger sewers enn he pushed rlRht
along. Besides the big sewer to the river,
a sewer to Jetter's brewery and Corrlgan's
place Is proposed, also a sewer to reach
the river through Missouri avenue Some

Trouble Cleared Last Jflurht.
Manager Carter of the telephone com
pany said last evening that by working
a force of linemen all day Sunday tho
trouble on the wires caused by the storm
was cleared. This morning all of the
telephones In the city will be In wording
order. A great deal of work was made
necessary by the burning out" of cahles
carrying a large number of wires. New
cables had to be hoisted to replace the
burned out ones and connections made.
While complaints were rumerous, patrons,
of the telephone company seemed to un
derstand under what difficulties the line
men were working and abided by the de
lay with more than ordinary patience.
Subscribers are being consoled with the
knowledge that It will not be long before
the bulk of the wires are placed under
ground and after that there will be little
trouble on the wires during storms.

Prisoners Are Expensive.
A bill for feeding city prisoners for the
month of August was filed lste Saturday
with the city clerk. This bill calls for I71H
and means that 751 meals were served to
prisoners In one month. This Is at the rate
cf about twenty-five prisoners a dy. Most
of the prisoners were tramps, who v e: e dis
charged after being held twelve or fifteen
hours. Only a small number of the totil
were sentenced to work on the weed cutting
gang. Several months ago the city pur
chased two cars of ruble, but not a pris
oner has been put to work on this rock pile
sine the stone was dumped in the rear of
I the city hall building. Had the stone been
I broken It would come In handy soon for the
filling of washouts on unpaved streets. As
It Is now the wushouts will le filled with
dirt and the next heavy rain will wash
these fills out and so the endless task of
filling holes goes on.

Several voting machines have been lo
cated In stores where election booths will
be located In order that the voters may be
come familiar with the machines. It Is the
Intention of the city authorities to send
out ss many of these machines as possible
before election, but only voting plsces
where the location Is permanent will be
favored with machines. The voters seem to
be grasping the Idea readily and It only
takes a few lessons to teach the ordinary
voter how to cast a straight or spilt ballot,

Don't you give your heart the same chanex
you do the other organs?
Why? Because when any other organ Is
In trouble It refuses to work, and you
hasten to repair It.
The heart, the ever faithful servant,
never refuses, as long as It has power to
move, but continues to do tho hest it can,
getting weaker and weaker, until It Is past
repair, and then stops. It Is Just as sick
as the other organs, but because It will
work you let It.
However. It. Is not too late for a "chango
of heart," so remember
Dr. Miles' Heart Cure
will give you heart strength and vitality
to overcome Dizziness, Palpitation. Short
Breath, Faint Spells Pains In Heart ami
Hide, and all other Heart aches and diffi
culties. "My heart would ache and palpitate ter
ribly and at times I could hardly breathe.
Dr. Miles' Heart Cure has restored me to
perfect health and I am very grateful."
