today that, after consultation with the at

a majority of the votes are withheld, but

have numerous teachers who would have

that the present Incumbents, who are prop

RULERS OF THE WORLD
Meat Eating Xatlona Are the Leadera
In Every Branch of Human
The ruling nations of the world are meat
eaters, and history records that they
always have been.
Vegetarians and food cranks may ex
plain this In any way they choose, but tha
fact reraalna that the Americans, English.
French, Russians and Germans are meat
eating nations, and they are also the most
energetic and most progressive.
The principal food of the heroic Boer
soldier, known as Biltong, Is a sort of dried
beef, affording a great deal of nourishment
in a highly concentrated form.
The weak racea of people are tha rice
eating Chinese, Hindoos and Biamese, re
garded since the dawn of history as non
progressive, superstitious and Inferior
physically and mentally to the meat eat
ing nations, who dominate them.
The structure of the teeth plainly Indi
cates that human beings should subsist
upon a variety of food. meat, fruit and
grains, and It is unhygienic to confine one's
diet to any one of those classes lo the ex
clusion of another.
Meat is the most concentrated and most
easily digested of foods, but our manner of
living is often so unnatural that the diges
tive organs refuse to properly digest meat,
eggs and similar nutritious and whole
some food, but it is not because such food
is unwholesome, but the real reason Is
that the stomach lacks, from disease or
weakness, some necessary digestive ele
ment, hence arising Indigestion and, later
on. chronic dyspepsia.
Nervous people should eat plenty of
meat, convalescents should make meat
their principal food, hard working people
have to do so and brain workers and office
men should eat, not so much meat, but at
least once a day, and to insure its perfect
digestion one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tables should be taken after each meal,
because they supply the peptones, diastase
and fruit acids lacking in every cue of
Nervous dyspepsia, catarrh of stomach,
gastritis, aour stomach, gas and acidity
are only different names for indigestion,
the failure to digest wholesome food, and
the use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
cures them all, because, by affording per
fect digestion, the stomach has a chance
to rest and recover Its natural tone and
Btuart's Dyspepsia Tablets la the real
household medicine; it ia as safe und pleas
ant for the stomachache of the baby as It
Is for the Imperfect digestion of its grand
sire. They are not a cathartic, but a llgeatlve,
and no pill habit can ever follow their use;
the only habit Stuart's Tablets induce Is
the habit of good digestion, and, conse
quently, good health.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.-(SpeclaJ Tele
gram. ) Senator Burkett today made a plea
with Attorney General Moody for the as
signment of United States prisoners con
victed in Nebraska to the Lincoln peniten
tiary Instead of having them sent either
to Sioux Falls or Leavenworth. Senator
Burkett called the attention of the at
torney general to the fact that Nebraska
has one of the most up-to-date prisons In
the country; that the health statistics
showed that Lancaster county stood
among the vory first In low rate of mor
tality, and he urged the attorney general
to authorize the sending at least of United
States prisoners convicted in Nebraska to
Lincoln. Attorney General Moody was im
pressed with Senator Burkett's presenta
tion and said he would send a special of
ficer to the Nebraska penitentiary to report
No Money for Snrveya.
It now appears the resurvey of thirty
two townships In Rock and Brown coun
ties, Nebraska,, which the commissioner of
the general land office was authorized to
make under a bill Representative Klnkald
pu through last congress, must be post
poned until such time as congress makes
an appropriation to carry on the work.
The bill authorizing aurveya in Rock and
Brown countiea merely authorized the
commissioner of the general land office to
Investigate whether such resurveya were
necessary and did not appropriate any
money to carry on the work provided It
was found necessary. The corner mark-
I lngs In townships In these counties have
been found to be defective and a resurvey
,' must be made to establish the true llnea.
Commissioner Richards, thinking that per
haps he could squeeze out of the general
fund money sufficient to make the neces
sary surveys, advertised for bids snd
Messrs. Bates and Dobson were the suc
cessful bidders. Now it appears no money
can be paid out of the general fund for
resurveys In Brown and Rock countiea
and Messrs. Bates ano uoDson win nava 10
wait until congress appropriates some
money before they can commence work.
The cost of these resurveya will approxi

"Most ordinary colds will yield to the
simplest treatment," aays the Chicago
Tribune, "moderate laxatives, hot foot

of exposure to cold and wet after treat

requires considerable trouble, and the one
adopting It must remain indoors for a day

pneumonia follows. Ia It not better to

OMAHA. Nov. M.-To the Editor of Tha
Beo: I think I may .safely aay, to .The Bee,
and to all whom It may concern, that vol
ume I of the Morton-Watklna "History of
Nebraska" will appear not later than De
cember 10 next, volume II' In January ami
that volume 111 ia well advanced In prepa
ration. The history was projected by Mr. Morton
and Is being written by Albert Watklns.
From what I know of Its scope, and the
proofs I have had of the patient research
and labors of Albert Watklns, whose ability
Is recognised on all hands, I frankly aay
that. In my own opinion, the people of the
state will have every reason to be proud of
the only real history of the state. If I may
be excused for a personal statement, I will
also mention my own name, which haa ap
peared aa associate editor of the history.
Many persons have assumed that I was tn
be one of the authors of the work. Thla
was never true. My office wss to sld and
assist agents and writers In procuring ma
terial and promoting the enterprise., So fir
aa I can now remember my only contrlhu
tlona to the history are sketches of the
Uvea of J. Sterling Morton and Henry W.
Yatea and my own autobiography.
