street railway company succeeded in main
taining a good car service between this
city and Omaha, although for about halt
an hour Uie cars were tied up on either
side of the railroad tracks.
The flood was not of long duration and
after about an hour the water In the creek
subsided. At one timed uring the height
of the flood the water was within an inch
or so of going over the North Eighth street

Mr. Carnegie's address was devoted en

even the possibility of putting an end to
war. He said In part:
Much has man accomplished In this un-

delible mark of war still remains to stain
the earth and discredit our claim to clvll

the march of Improvement. A new stain
has recently crept Into the rules of war as
foul as any that war has been forced by
publlo sentiment to discard. Today It Is
held that a formal declaration of war is
not Indispensable and that war can exist
without It. Here is the only step back

Corn on the McConk division is fully ma

very much. There seems to be no doubt
that between Oxford and McConk espe

LOGAN. Ia.. Oct. 17.-(Speclal.)-In the
Harrison county district court this morn
ing the criminal docket ass resumed by the
trial of the matter of the State of Iowa
On August Ji Bowers shot and killed
George F arris, a prominent and wealthy
Knox county lumber dealer. He was tried
by the Laurel county jury early last week.
The Jury disagreed, being ten for the
death penalty and two for a life sentence.
A second trial by a Jury brought from
court of the United States Judges today be
tween states embracing an area larger than
Europe. It will be no novelty, but merely
an extension of sn agency already proved
upon smaller scale.
Notwithstanding all the cheering signs of
the growth of arbitration, we should delude
ourselves If we assumed that war Is Imme
diately to Increase, for It Is scarcely to be
hoped that the future has not to witness
more than one great holocaust of men to
be offered up before the reign of peace
blesses the earth. Rut that, peace Is to
come at last, and that sooner, much sooner,
than the ma'orlty of my hearers csn possi
bly credit. I for one entertain not one par
tic' of doubt.

Many mothers of emparlance can tell you

them was the best woman's tonic and

oyed an enviable reputation for over a
third of a century. In all that time it
haa sold more largely in the United

may be, she cannot use "Favorite Pre

not strong who best appreciate the great
benefits reoeived from the use of " Fa
