RULERS OP THE WORLD
Meat Eating; Nations Are the Leaders
In Every Branca of Hainan
The ruling nations of tne 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 the
fact remains 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 race of people are the rice
eating Chinese. Hindoo and Siamese, re
garded since the dawn, of history a non

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 contlne one's
dirt to any ono of those classes to the ex
cluslbn 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,
rggti 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 peopke
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 It perfect
digestion one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsl;
Tables should be taken after each meal,
because they supply the peptones, diastase
and fruit acids- lacking In every case of
Nervous dyspepsia, catarrh of stomach,
gastritis, sour stomach, gas and acidity
are only different names for indigestion,
the failure to digest wholesome food, and
the use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets

feet digestion, the stomach has a chance
to rest and recover Its natural tone and
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets Is the real
household medicine; It la as safe and pleas

is for the Imperfect digestion of Its grand

the only habit Stuart's Tablets Induce Is
the habit of good digestion, and, conse

Relieve Congestion at Hospital.
The authorities of the Lincoln hospital
for the Insane have made arrangements
to transfer at an early date sixty patients
to the Hastings asylum. This well re
lieve the congestion, which has been a
serious factor In the proper management
of the IJncoln Institution, and will make
It possible to give the remaining patients
the proper care. Of those removed twenty
or twenty-five will be women.
The situation at tr. Greene's Institution
has been serious for more than a year,
and during that time many of the patients
have .been obliged to sleep on the floor
In the dormitories and In the hallways.
Several serious accidents grew out of
these conditions and the typhoid epidemic
which recently existed at the hospital was
chargeable. Dr. Greene contended, to the
overcrowding, which Interfered with the
most effective sanitation. More employes
were added to the staff, but their efforts
were less effective than they would have
been with plenty of room for the proper
care of the patients.
The transfer of these Inmates to the
Hastings asylum will provide more room
for the dipsomaniacs who are committed
from the counties. The officials have been
discouraging commitments recently be
cause of the lack of room.
Superintendent Kerns of the Hastings
Institution, who was In the city today
attending to the details of the transfer,
reported to the governor that everything
Is In good condition and he Is able to take
care of the Increase In the population

source shows slight Increase.

will extend a hearty greeting and do all
possible to make the meeting here both
pleasant and profitable.
The Lincoln boomers are hopeful they
may be able to land several national con
ventions next year. Among other gather

Lincoln could secure the latter meeting If
it had a suitable armory In which to hold

LIVELY TIMES ON CONSTRUCTION WORK
Contest Between Rorllasrtoa nnd
talon Facile to See Which Will
Be First to Have Its Road
NORTH PLATTE, Neb., Nov. 18. (Spe
cial.) Western Nebraska Is on the thresh
old of the greatest boom known since the
wild buffalo roamed Its grassy domains.
Real estate, which heretofore has been
considered as of no great value. Is mount
ing skyward, and speculators from the east
as well as from Nebraska and neighboring
states are proving their faith In what was
once called the seml-arld region by pur
chasing tracts of land In this neighborhood.
In fact the country Is alive with land
buyers and Investors.
Probably one of the most attractive fea
tures Is the construction of the Burlington
and Union Pacific railroads, which has al
ready begun. The companies are vlelng
with each other In finishing their roads
first. From the Junction of the North
Platte with the South Platte river, a few
miles east of this city, westward to the
Wyoming line, on both sides of the North
Platte river, the flat valley, averaging sev-
eral mile In width, along It entire course
is extremely fertile. Numerous Irrigation
districts extend throughout the entire
course of the valley, and the hay land of
natural hay Is very productive. Yet for
years this valley has been without a rail
road, or even reasonable good access to
one, from North Platte to Northport, a
distance of about 125 miles. Now lost time
Is being made up and the Burlington and
the Union Pacific have already begun con
struction of roads up this valley along
almost Identical routes.
The first move was made by the Burling
ton, which announced a few weeks ago
that it would construct a line through this
valley and Joining with Its present line at
Northport. East of here the road was to
Join the Burlington branch from Farnam
or Wellfleet, on what Is known as the
"high line," about twenty miles south, or
else go along the south side of the Platte
river from North Platte to some point
on the Burlington south of Kearney. This
valley, too, is very rich and well settled,
and by going along the south side of the
Platte river, which Is followed on the north
side by the Union Pacific, the Burlington
would tap the enemy's country In earnest.
Construction on the Burlington ha already
begun west of here.
I'nlon Pacllle Is Busy.
The Union Pacific, however, at this time
has made the greatest headway. There are
now too teams at work on the route of the
new road up the North Platte valley. A
cut-off has been made and track con
structed for a short distance from the
main line and extensive grading Is being
done. The new Union Pacific road leaves
the main line a few miles west of this
city and then goes up the North Platte
valley on the south side of the river to
about five miles west of Paxton, or a dis
tance of about forty miles west of this
city. At this point the road crosses the
North Piatt river and runs west to North
port along its north bank.
The plat filed by the Burlington at the
United States land office her Indicate
the same course throughout, with very
little divergence, but since the Burlington
has begun construction at the western
end of the route It Is not definitely known
where the line will cross the North ktte
river. Every available grading outfit 'and
team In the country 1 being secured for
the construction of the route and the laying
of track is progressing rapidly. What
some time ago seemed likely to be rumor
Is now taking tangible form and there Is
no longer doubt about the construction
of the railroads.
At the county clerk's office of Lincoln
county one man Is kept busy all the time
filing and recording instruments conveying
rignts-or-way purchased by both railroads.
The county Judge Is engaged with con
demnation proceedings against the owners
of land who will not sell to the railroads.
Yesterday appraisers were appointed and
appraised land Just west of the city of
Nortn Platte, which will be usrd by the
Union Paclflo for extra trackage. Similar
proceedings are going on In other coun
ties along the routes of the new roads.
Material for telegraph line alone; the
route of the new Union Pacific ha been
ordered, and a line will be put In opera
tion prior to the completion of the road
to facilitate in us construction.
Increase Value of Land.
These new roads are greatly enhancing
the value of homestead lands which have
been filed upon during the past year un-
der what Is known as the Klnkald act.
or one-section homestead law. The roll'
ing prairies north of the country through
which the railroads are being built Is
among the very best grazing and dairying
land In the United States, and this coun
try was thrown open to one-section home
stead under the Klnkald act, February 14.
1905. Its chief disadvantage at that time
was the distance to railroad, but nearly
all the land within twenty miles of the
North Platte river was filed upon. Fur
ther north there Is yet about 100 vacant
sections of land, which now becomes much
more desirable on accounof the railroads
coming from six to twelve miles closer
than the main line of the Union Pacific.
This land lies along the south half of Mc
Pherson county and Is the country where
the cattlemen have heretofore been so
reluctant to give up the land which they
had Inclosed, but those trouble are now
about at an end and that" proposition need
not bother the homeseeker.
The best proposition now, however, I
the land which was tiled upon but no resi
dence established within the six month
required by law. The one-section filings
were made at land openings In the ma
jority, when large number filed without
ever seeing the land, and, although about
half of these have gone to their new homes,
moved their families there,' built houses,
stocked the land and broke out those por
tions which were best suited to cultiva
tion, still about an even half have never
gone upon their land and hence are now
In default, and upon contest their entries
will be cancelled and parties contesting
be allowed to file. The contest costs In
the neighborhood of $20. but the country
Is being searched by parties, who are con
testing the land for the purpose of secur
ing It for their own homestead filings.

District court convened here Monday, with
Judge Grave presiding. The trial of Roy

some length to the prisoner concerning the
seriousness of his offense and repeatedly
aid that the defendant could consider him
self exceedingly lucky in having such a con

light a sentence as possible, in view of the
evidence that the case had disclosed. The
Judgment of t lief, court was that Rankin
