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 progressive, superstitious and Inferior physically and meatsHTto" the Vneat 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 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 stomach trouble. 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 cures them 'all, because, by affording per feet digestion, the stomach has a chance to rest and recover Its natural tone and vigor. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets Is the real household medicine; It la as safe and 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 llgestlve, and no pill hahlt can ever follow thrlr use; the only habit Stuart's Tablets Induce Is the habit of good digestion, and, conse q,uenlly. good health.

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 without overcrowding. Big- Receipts for Oil Inspection. Today Oil Inspector Church made his monthly statement to the governor showing that he has collected the gross sum of $2,364.70, out of which $099.53 went for ex penses, while tl,3G6.1T was turned over to the state treasurer.

The state and city 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 ings which are being sought for Is the Na tional Guard association. It Is urged that Lincoln could secure the latter meeting If it had a suitable armory In which to hold the session. Grants Commutation. Governor Mickey this afternoon granted a commutation to Elmer Beard, a Burlington fireman, who was sentenced to forty days In the county Jail for assaulting his engi neer. The commutation takes effect today, It was recommended by District Judge Cor nish, the trial Judge, who Informed the governor that he did not understand the facts fully when tho sentence was Imposed Beard had been in Jail forty days before and after his trial. Difference Settled. Today a compromise between the . Lin coln Traction company and the new Omaha, Lincoln Beatrice line was announced by which the numerous Injunction suits now pending ' against the new corporation will be dismissed and a traffio arrangement has been entered Into between the authorities of the two companies, who spent the bet' ter part of last evening In discussing the matter. I Is stated that the Interurban will probably construct a line along Four teenth street into the heart of the city, where a terminus will be located, but It will be used for freight traffic. Some one of the traction . company's lines may be used for passenger traffio in from Twenty seventh street. Treating; Deformed Children. Assistant Superintendent Dr. H. tV. Orr of the new State Orthopedic hospital stated today that there are now twelve Inmates, with many applications to be passed upon. A large amount of apparatus has been se cured and two of the rooms In the east building at the Home for the Friendless have been fitted up as wards. Several nurses are employed.

They are attended by their mothers, who are required to accompany hlldren under the age of 2 years. One of the patients Is a 17-year-old girL The age limit Is 18 years, because of the imprac ticability of treating older persons for de formities.

LIVELY TIMES ON CONSTRUCTION WORK Contest Between Rorllasrtoa nnd talon Facile to See Which Will Be First to Have Its Road Completed. 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. Conrt at Hartlaaton. HARTINOTON, Neb., Nov. lti. (Special.) District court convened here Monday, with Judge Grave presiding. The trial of Roy Rankin. charged with shooting John Schwcr. both of this county, October 1 last, has occupied the attention of the court and attracted considerable Interest. This evening the Jury, after being out leas than two hours, brought in a verdict of assault. The court In pronouncing sentence spoke at 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 siderate jury, which had brought in a light a sentence as possible, in view of the evidence that the case had disclosed. The Judgment of t lief, court was that Rankin be lined tl(M. the limit of the law for as sault, and the cost of U. trial, whicU Is a large amount. The fine was remitted during the good behavior of the defendant. TWO ME WAITED I KEARSKY Denver Police Nab Parties Aeenaed of Passing- Bad Check.

Nov. 1. 1906. Rev. Newton Mann, Omaha, Neb. Dear Sir: With a mixed feeling of gratitude and grief wo have received your book on "The Evolu tion of a Great Literature," dedicated to Prof. Cheyne and my father gratitude that my father' work wa not done in vain; that It la appreciated in America as well as In Holland. It often made htm sad that foreigners would not listen to him. For most students his Ideas were too liberal. As you may Imagine, It was a delight for him to write for the Encyclo paedia Blbllca, as there scholars had to take notice of him. A severe Illness pre vented his writing all the articles for th Encyclopaedia he had planned to con tribute. His work begins to be more and more appreciated now that he cannot hear the praises. Our best father passed away this sum mer. For him It was a release after much suffering, as he had been 111 for three years. But he bore pain as a Christian, as only a really great man can bear It. My mother and we, his children, wish to express our brst thanks to you for the honor paid to mv father. With kind re gards. Truly yours, ' J. C. VAN MAN EN.
