movement was taken on the Initiative of
Governor Mickey, who Is the chairman of
the committee, which will meet again De
cember 27 to take up the matter. Chancel

Beeaase 'Jaror Slept.
One of the main points urged in the de--mand
for a new trial in- the case of State
against Wlnfield S. Haddix, from Custer
county, which has been appealed to the su
preme court, Is the allegation that one of
the Jurors, named , Olson, slept during a
portion of the testimony. Several affidavits
are Included In the record to prove the
contention that the trier of facts was nod
ding and , was about ' to be prodded Into
wakefulness by the watchful sheriff when
sleep left his eyes.' The controversy Is as
to whether he was really asleep or only
In profound thought, with his head rest
ing on his hand.
Hot to Vacate Injunction.
Tn an opinion prepared by Chief Justice
Iloleorrfb the supremo court has refused to
accede to the ruling of the Douglas county
, district court vacating .the Injunction order
Secured several years ago by Jesse Root
(et al, against the Prospect Hill Cemetery
. association to prevent the extension of the
burial grounds. In . the original suit the
plaintiffs . claimed thdt ' their wells were
threatened with contamination because of
the proposed extension" of the cemetery
nd a perpetual Injunction issued. The
ground on which Judge Holcomb bases his
Beclston la the failure of the cemetery as
portation to "Show that the "threatened ln
. Jury has been certainly overcome, not that
It possibly may be."
He states that several people In that
aection of the city are dependent on wells
for their water supply and refers to the
testimony showing the possibility of infec
tion. One of the arguments In behalf of
the motion to vacate -was that an ordi
nance of the city' had required that graves
In the extension .toe" eewionted- an made
water proof. Tie chief Justice says that
the record shows that this is not a manda
tory regulation and there was no certainty
that It would be-enforced in every In
Hlahlander By-Laws Effective.
Commenting on the decision of the su
preme court to- the effect that a suicide
clause enacted by the executive castle in
1801 was not effective because the legisla
tive body was not representative at that
time. President W. E. Sharp of the order
stated today that the edicts are well tn
force now, having been re-enacted at the
recent Denver executive castle meeting,
which was truly representative.

BIDJIEK CASK DRAWS A CROWD

HA8TINOS, Neb., Dec. 7 (Special Tele

lining the testimony which he proposed to Mr. Kickley's experience Justified his de
offer and which he said would show that j termination to quit the business. Ho
Uudnek fired the shots for the purpose of
killing Smeal. The testimony of the wit
nesses for the state was all substantially
the same as was given at the preliminary
hearing a few weeks ago.
The chief Interest In the case centers In
the defense. Mr. Stevens, the attorney for
Budnek, did little cross-examining. As to
the shooting having been done by Budnek
there Is, of course, no doubt. It Is ex
pected, however, that the defense will pro
duce some testimony which will tend to
show that a serious feud existed In tho
family and that Budnek was provoked to
make the assault.
The defendant was attentive throughout
the examination and frequently smiled and
laughed. The case will be resumed tomor
Child Retaras to Mother.
PLATTSMOUTH, Neb., Dec. 7. (Special.)
About three years ago Rev. J. W. Swan,
then a resident of this city, but now In
University Place, and one of the staff of
the New York Children's Home society, ac
companied a number of children from New
York City to Nebraska, where he secured
good homes for them. Among the number
was little Clara Henbrook, who was given
to Mr. and Mrs. John Thomas in Louis
ville, In this county, which has since been
her happy home. At a very tender age
Clara's father died and her mother, owing
to misfortunes, found It necessary to part
with her daughter, so she placed her with
the New York Children's Home society,
which institution has found homes for thou
sands of orphan children. Some time since
the society was informed by Clara's mother
that she was remarried and had a com
fortable home, and, with a mother's love,
asked that her daughter be returned to
her. Rev. J. W. Swan was informed of the
facts by the society and reported the same
to Mr. and Mrs. Thomas and to their
adopted daughter. Miss Clara, although
without having any remembrance of her
mother, was willing to return to her, but
it was some time before Mr. and Mrs.
Thomas, who had learned to love her as
their own child, could decide to part with
her, but with much reluctance they finally
consented. Miss Clara Handbrook has de
parted for New York City and was accom
panied as far as Omaha by her foster par
ents and Rev. J. W. Swan.
Libel Salt Grows Ont of Campaign.
BROKEN BOW, Neb., Dee. 7. (Special.)
What promises to be an interesting case of
libel will be brought up next term on the
criminal court docket. The affair assumed
shape during the last political campaign In
this county, but according to the defendant
there Is some personal feeling dating fanner
back mixed up In the matter. Judge Shlnn,
who ran on the Independent ticket for
county Judge and was defeated by A. R.
Humphrey, has brought suit against Judge
J. R. Rhodes of Ansley for defamation of
character. A certain article appeared In
the Ansley Chronicle during the campaign
which Shlnn seriously objected to, alleg
ing that Rhodes was the author of It,
hence the trouble. The defendant went be
fore Justice G. Schwtnd yesterday after
noon and had his bonds fixed at 1300, but
was released on his own recognisance.

reloaded and shipped to Chicago, realising
that telegrams would be sent to Chicago
meat trust buyers and chances were all
against him getting any netter price. For
tunately for Mr. Klckley there happened to
be at the time the cattle arrived an Eng

export, paying him $5.60 to $6. At the price
the meat trust is selling dressed beef In
England this buyer said he could afford to
pay the price, kill his beef across the water
and make money.
Mr. Klckley says that since the meat
trust has dictated the price of cattle he has
lost over $7,000.

WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY
The Omaha Congress of Mothers met
Wednesday ' afternoon at the . Xoung
Women's Christian association rooms, Mrs.
George Tllden presiding. Reports from the
several school circles were a feature of the
meeting. No meetings were held In the
southeast part of the city, but three other
circles have met. Lothrop school circle,
Mrs. C. E. Llewellyn president, met and or
ganized November 14 with about "seventy
five women present. The South Omaha
circle organized November 17, with Mrs.
Berry chairman and about sixty mothers
present. The South Omaha women win
hold their next meeting January 6. l ne
mothers of Dupont school met last week,
effecting an organization with twenty-one
members. The Dupont circle will meet
again this afternoon at the close of the
afternoon session. As the majority of the
women are foreigners the program will con
sist of a recital of Christmas customs and
Christmas stories from the various coun
tries by the women. Refreshments will be
served. It Is expected that the other circles
will organize Immediately after the holi
days, but few of the mothers will have
time for outside work before that time.
According to the St, Paul papers It Is
probable that the armory will be used In
stead of the People's church for the ses
sions of the St. Paul biennial of the Gen
eral Federation of Women's Clubs next
spring, as formerly announced. The change
Is desirable owing to the proximity of the
armory to the old capltol building, which
is to be used as headquarters for the
women, and also because of Its large seat
ing capacity of between 3,000 and 4,000.
Preparation Is being made for 5,000 guests.
Over 8,000 delegates are expected and the
unofficial guests will swell the number to
5,000 or more unless the St. Paul meeting
proves less attractive than the past two
biennials have been.
A conference of the
board of directors of the General Federa
tion Is scheduled for February In Chicago,
and at that time the plans of the local
board will be acted upon. The biennial
opens May 30 and continues through ten
days. June 6 will probably be celebrated as
Minneapolis day, when the visiting women
wl'.l be entertained tn that city. It Is prob
able that that day will also be celebrated
by th. planting of an avenue of trees be
tween the two titles as a memento of the
club women and the eighth biennial.

Most old Deoole are trreat sufferers
are seldom free from pains or ailments of some description, because they are
cot as able to withstand the severity of the climate, with, its damp, changing
weather, as are their younger, more vigorous companions. Cold weather
starts the old aches and pains; they suffer with chilly sensations, cold
extremities, poor appetite and digestion, nervousness, sleeplessness and
other afflictions peculiar to old age. With advancing years the strength and
vitality of the system begin to decline. The heart action is weak and irregu

old blood taint that has lain dormant in the system for years begins to man-,
