EVERYONE REFUSES TO GET SCARED
Par Officials Art Caaeeraa,
Will Leftlalatar DI4 r Did
Sot Do oa Salaries Is
With the possible exception of Mr. Hitch
cock and others closely related to him In
an endeavor to make some campaign thun
der, excitement over what the legislature
did or did not do on the matter of fixing
salaries of county officers Is nil. The
county officers In Omaha said by the
World-Herald to be affected and nearly
scared to death refuse, with a stoicism that
Is painful, to get excited or even Interested
over the matter.
The general opinion expressed was that
the legislature did not Intend to single out
any group of officers for a Reduction in
salary, but that it did Intend to Increase
the salary of the treasurer In counties hav
ing between 25.000 and 60,000 Inhabitants.
County Judge-elect Leslie said:
"That amendment does not affect the
office of county judge. Even If the salary
were cut by the amendment, there is
further provision that the county Judge
shall have fees up to the smount of $3,600,"
Deputy County Clerk Butler said:
"We hold the amendment does .not affect
our office one way or another.' We are
paying no attention to it at all.- If need
be, we will fall back on the lime-honored
defense of all good men and hold the law
County Treasurer Fink said: "I havs
been too busy to pay any attention to the
matter; but you can say for me that what
ever the law Is it will be obeyed by the
county treasurer. Further than that I have
nothing to say now."
One of Sheriff Power's deputies said:
"We are not worrying at all. . This office
considers the law plain with reference to
the compensation of the sheriff, and we
are living up to Its provisions. Someone
will have to show us if we are drawing
mora money than the law allows. Wo
rather think the shoe is on the other foot.
with the county holding up and disallowing
bills which a judge of the district court
says there Is st least a strong moral ob
ligation to pay."
One of the judges of the district court
"As the amendment stands It apparently
applies only to county treasurers, but it is
difficult for anyone to say Just what the
legislature did mean Bo far as I can see the
old section is re-enacted In toto, with the
exception that the words 'and less than
80,000 inhabitants' are Inserted In the clause
referring to county treasurer."

THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL
Few People Kwow How tsofol It Is
Preserving; Health aaa Beaatr.
Nearly everybody knows that charcoal Is
the safest and most efficient disinfectant
and purifier in nature, but few realise Its
value when taken Into the human system
for the same cleansing purpose.
Charcoal Is a remedy that the more you
take of it the better; it Is not a drug at all.
but simply absorbs the gases and Impurities
always present In the stomach and Intes
tines and carries them out of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath after smok
ing, drinking or after sating onions and
other odorous vegetables. .
Charcoal effectually clears and Improves
the complexion. It whitens the teeth and
further acta as a natuial and eminently
It absorbs the Injurious gases which col
lect in ths stomach and bowels; It disin
fects the mouth and throat from the poison
All druggists sell charcoal In one form or
another, but probably the best charcoal and
the most for the money Is In Stuart's Char
coal Losenges; they are composed of the
finest powdered willow charcoal, and other
harmless antiseptics In tablet form, or
rather In ths form of large, pleasant tasting
lotenges, the charcoal being mixed with
The daily use of these losenges will soon

It is that no possible harm ran result from
their continued use, but on the contrary,
A Buffalo physician, 'In speaking of the
benefits of ' charcoal, says: "1 advise
Stuart's Charcoal Loxenges to all patients
suffering from gas In stomach and bowels,
and to clear the complexion and purify the
breath, mouth and throat; I also believe
the Irver is greatly benefited by the dally
use of them; they cost but twenty-five cents
a box at drug stores, and although in some
sense a patent preparation, yet I believe I
get more and better charcoal In Stuart's
Charcoal Losf-nges than In any of the or

After consulting for advice with John L.

The committee further reports:
"We are of the opinion the water com

when It has turned on the water and recog
