(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Nov. 21.-(Special.) The Lin-
Coin High school foot ball team has can
celled the Saturday game with the lola.
Kan., High school team and may disband
for the season because of the serious In-
Jury Incurred by Homer Gibson, the Ksn-
sas City manual player. In the game last
Saturday. Gibson Is Improving since the
trepanning operation was performed and
the blood clot was removed from the cere
bral cavity, but the accident has placed a
damper on tbe spirits of the Lincoln lads.
who were Intensely anxious over the early
reports that the young man would die.
The game with lola has been definitely
called off. but no action has yet been taken
In regard to the remaining dates, although
It is staled that a majority of the students
favor the cancellation of all other dates
for the season. Assistant Manager Htne
of the team takes the same view.
Gibson's clone call has had Its effect In
awakening the opposition to high school
foot ball Into activity and there Is more
or less talk against the game. 8hould the
ecldent have terminated fatally anxious
parents were ready to take stringent meas
ures to combat the game. Aa It Is, with
the Kansss City player lying In a hospital
with a very grave Injury, many parents
are manifesting a disposition to take their
sons out of the game, and to that Influ
ence the cancellation of the remaining
games will be responsible In a measure,
although ostensibly out of respect for Gib
son. The man was Injured In fair play. It Is
explained that the accident was unavoid
able and due to the rush of the contending
players for a fumbled ball.
Burning Records Cats 5o Flgnre.
Attorney General Brown today expressed
his unconcern over the action of the offi
cers of the defunct Nebraska Grain Deal
ers' association in burning the records after
action was taken to dissolve the concern.
He regards the action as rather peculiar
on the part of experienced business men,
but says that it will not affect the state's
casi in any event since he has all the evi
dence that la needed. As a matter of fact,
It Is said, the correspondence made up the
bulk of the records and for use as evidence
the letters sent out containing the man
dates of the association are of far more
value than those remaining In the files.
The supreme court granted the attorneys
for the association another two weeks In
which to prepare for oral argument, thus
deferring the submission of the case '
the next sitting.
Today Attorney H. H. Wllsc -esent
ing the Omaha, Lincoln A Beatilce rail
way, made an effort to secure a final ruling
In the suits of North Fourteenth street
property owners to prevent the construc
tion of the line. He urged that great dam
age Is being done by each day's delay, and
Insisted that the freezing weather which
Is approaching would seriously Interfere
with operations if there were any further
delay In the settlement of the stilts. The
court Is expected to make a final ruling
Antl-Clgarette Law Case.
The case against Pat Raymond, a yoting
laborer who was arrested by the police for
having rolled and smoked cigarettes, was
continued In the police court today until
tomorrow. The city officials will seek to
convict the young man on the charge of
having unlawfully manufactured a cigar
ette within the meaning of the new Case'
Attacks Vladaet Project.
Attorney R. J. Greene, representing the
Rock Island railway, took steps today in
the district court to Impeach the action
of the people of Lincoln In voting for the
construction of a viaduct across Its tracks
In East Lincoln, alleging that the ballots
cast on that occasion were not kept In the
depositories required by law for several
weeks after the election and might have
been tampered with.
Prof. Wolfe Coming Back.
At tne university omces today, it was
announced that Prof. H. K. Wolfe of the
University of Montana has accepted the
call extended him by the University of
Nebraska to take .charge of the depart
ment of educational psychology. Prof.
Wolfe waa a member of the faculty during
the last yeara of the administration of
former Chancellor George E. McLean.
Wolfe Incurred the displeasure of the head
of the Institution and dropped out of the
department of philosophy and psychology,
of which he was then the head. At the
time the action of the authorities created
a small riot among the numerous student
adherents of Wolfe, who claimed that
politics was responsible for the action.
Honor Memory of Araaas Cobb.
Today in the supreme court resolutions
and addresses In honor to the memory of
former Chief Justice Amasa Cobb, who

LET YOUR STOMACH. HAVE
ITS OWN WAY.
Do Rot Try to Drive and Force It to
Work When It Is Not Able or Ton
Mill Suffer All the More.
Tou cannot treat your stomach as some
men treat a balky horse; force, drive or
even starve it into doing work at which it
It rebels. The stomach is a patient and
faithful servant and will stand much abuse
and ill-treatment before it "balks,", but
when It does you had better go slow with
Itj and not attempt to make It work. Some
people ha-e the mistaken Idea that they
can make their stomachs work by starving
themselves. They might cure the stomach
that way, but It would take so long that
they would have no use for a stomach
when they got through. The sensible way
out of the difficulty Is to let the stomach
rest If It wants to and employ a substitute
to do Its work.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tsblets will do the
work of your stomach for you and digest
your food Just as your stomach used to
when it was well. Tou can prove this by
putting your food In a glass Jar with one
of tha tablets and sufficient water and you
will see the food digested In Just the same
time as the digestive fluids of the stom
ach would do it. That will satisfy your
mind. Now, to satisfy both your mind
and body, take one of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets after eating eat all and what you
want and you will feel In your mind that
your food Is being digested because you
will feel no disturbance or weight In your
stomach; in fact you will forget all about
having a stomach. Just as you did when
you were a healthy boy or girl.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets act in a na
tural way because they contain enly the
natural elements of the gastric Juices
and other digestive fluids of the stomach.
It makes no difference what condition the
stomach is In. they go right ahead of their
own accord and do their work. They know
their bualness and surrounding conditions
do not Influence them In the least. They
thus relieve the weak stomach of all Its
burdens and give It Its much needed rest
and permit It to become strong and
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are for sale
by all druggists at to cents a box. They
are so well known and their popularity Is
so great that a druggist would as soon
think of being out of alcohol or quinine
as of them. In fact, physicians are pre
scribing them all over the land, and It
your own doctor Is real honest with you,
he will tell you frankly that there is noth
ing on earth so good for dyspepsia as Stu
art's Dyspepsia Tablets.

gram.) Upon the suggestion of the officers
of the Blair Commercial club a meeting of
the business men of this city was called
for this afternoon for the purpose of trying
to secure a consolidation of the Mutual and
Nebraska telephone systems In this city
and throughout the county. The meeting
waa attended by about fifty of the business
men, who are, almost to a man, strongly
n favor of the one-'phone system. W. B.
T. Belt, superintendent; C. M. Harding,
chief solicitor, and G. H, Pratt, contract
ing agent of the Bell company, were pres
ent from Omaha and owing to a consider
able amount of misunderstanding between
the two companies In regard to propositions
made between the two last spripg the meet-
ng today was a stormy one for a while.
The Nebraska company lias about twenty-
five men at work and expects to spend
about $12,000 on its plant here and fhe Mu
tual company is extending Its lines and
both are evidently here for a stay to a
finish. The business men of Blair hope
for a consolidation of the two companies
and an up-to-date system of service, which
has not been furnished by either company
A meeting of the officers of both com
panies and the business men will be held
next Friday at 10 o'clock for a further
consideration of the matter.
