Two Superintendents Oat. State Superintendent McBrlen announced today that, after consultation with the at torney general, he haa decided that the two county superintendents-elect who did not have first-grade certificates on election day cannot qualify. The names of the persons and the counties In which they received a majority of the votes are withheld, but he states that the counties are large and have numerous teachers who would have been qualified. He leans toward the theory that the present Incumbents, who are prop erly qualified, will hold over until the next election. He said that it la probable that the minority candidates who were qualified will claim the offices on the ground that those who were without certificates had no right to have their names submitted to the electora Mr. McBrlen scouts the suggestion that the new certification law la invalid because It imposes conditions on candidates for county superintendent. He said today that the superintendents are not constitu tional officers and that the legislature therefore haa power to prescribe any rea sonable qualifications. Accused Ex-Ofllctala Get More Time.

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 stomach trouble. 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 vigor. 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 on conditions. 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.
