(From a Staff Correspondent.)
IvlNCOUN. Nov. 24. (Special.) A suit to
test the validity of the new anti-clg-arette
itatute in the supreme court Is to be based
n the conviction of Pat Raymond, a young
borer, who was fined o0 and coats by
Police Judge Cosgrave, Wednesday, for
rolling a single cigarette. The word manu
facture as used in the statute was Inter
preted by the court to refer to the rolling
f the single cigarette.
W. D. Mcliugh of Omaha, alleged to
eprescnt the Tobacco trust In a legal
capacity, has been In tt)e city Inspecting
the records of the trial and he has inti
mated to the police officials that an appeal
nould be taken for Raymond in order to
tuke the caae to the supreme court for the
purpose of securing a decision as to the
scope of the act with reference to the
manufacture of single cigarettes and the
validity of the general act.
The talk of carrying the question as to
the validity of the act into court baa re
called the charge made at the time of the
passago of the act that the title was de
fective In its reference to existing statutes.
On that account the local advocates of
uch lcglslutloii are speculating on the
possibility of a general attack on th law.
aimed by the trust, which has seen Its
lucrative trade in the products seriously
Mr. McHugh was In conference with
Deputy County Attorney F. M. Tyrrell
and the latter agreed to do everything in
his power to facilitate the Institution of a
tent cane, agreeing, If necessary, to file a
new complaint charging specifically "the
rolling and making of a cigarette,'' that
being one of the main points over which
contention had arisen.
It is regarded as significant that a reg
ular appeal la taken when the polio judge
would probably recommend a commutation
of sentence to the governor. The adoption
of the less expeditious method of securing
the man's freedom Is regarded as additional
evidence of a desire to make a test case.
Moat Sign In Ink.
.Auditor Searle Informed the State Board
of Education today that the signatures of
the members must be affixed to the vouch
ers with pen and Ink and not with a rub
ber stamp. The board had a large number
of vouchers to approve and the Use of
stamps to save time was suggested. SJp
erlntendent McBrlen called upon the aud
itor, who advised him that nothing but pen
and Ink signatures would be recognised.

mate made by Principal Thomas today.
The board allowed a large number of
claims for salaries, and for coal, supplies
and furnishings for new buildings.
The Kearney building has not yet been
completed, although it has been under way
for nearly two years. The board decided
to withhold the warrants until the struc
ture Is actually done. The board adjourned
to meet at Kearney, December 20, to ac
cept the building if It Is then completed.
Principal Thomas said that it will be fin

scheduled the present meeting at York, but

Much Notarial Business.
Secretary of State Galuaha believes that
the largest item in the business of his of
fice is the Issuance of notarial commis
sions. From twenty to twenty-five letters
a day relative to the notarial commissions
are received. Sometimes more than one
letter Is needed to Induce the applicant to
put his petition In the proper form. These
commissions make considerable demands
on the governor's time also, since he Is
obliged to sign them.
Department of Commerce.
Today the State Board of Education
voted to create a new department of com
merc at Peru in Conformity with the rec
ommendation of the Slate Bankers' asso
ciation, and W. N. Deliell of Lincoln was
elected to take charge of It. Such a de
partment recently established at Kearney
has proved Itself so popular that the board
considered It advisable to similarly equip
the other normal. It Is proposed in this
department to give the students a general
and comprehensive Insight into the theory
of commerce and allied subjects In order
that they may be equipped to teach the
subject In high schools, which are mod
ernizing their currlculums.
The board elected Miss Mamie Muts of
Valentine assistant critlo teacher in the
model school at Peru and Miss Nellie May
Schlee of Lincoln member of the faculty
of the same school. The latter la now at
Columbia university training school for
teachers, but will return at the call of the

they voted $20,000 for waterworks last fall,

from HunUvllle. Ont. This was an ad

'brought up' on the time-honored stand-by.
"One month ago," sho continues, "I
bought a package of Grape-Nuts food for
my husband, who had been an Invalid for
over a year. He had passed through a
severe attack of pneumonia and la grippe
combined, and was left in a very bad con

"I tried everything for his benefit, but
nothing seemed to do him any good.
Month followed month and he still re
mained as weak as ever. I was almost
discouraged about blm when I got the
Grape-Nuts, but the result has 'compen
sated me for my anxiety.
"In the one month that he has eaten
Grape-Nuts he lias gained ten pounds In
weight, his strength Is rapidly returning
to him, and he fuels like a new man.
Now we all eat Grape-Nuts food and are
the better for It. Our little 5-year-old boy,
who used to suffer from pains in the
stomach after estlug the old-fashioned por
ridge, has no more trouble since he began
to use Grape-Nuts, and I have no more
doctor's bills to pay for him.
"We use Grape-Nuts with only sweet
cream, and find It the most tasty dish la

"Last Monduy I ate four teaspoonfuls of
Grape-Nuts and cream for breakfast, noth

morning's work done by 9 o'clock, snd

had made my' breakfast ou meat, potatoes,
