Visited Every Convict.
Governor Mickey said today that he vis
ited every cell In the state penitentiary
yesterday afternoon and conversed with
all of the prisoners. He said that the num
ber asking for clemency was surprisingly
mall. He talked with the men of their
offenses and encouraged them to lead bet
ter lives. The prisoners did not have their
usual Christmas minstrel show, because
of the considerable amount of labor needed
In preparation. Many of the prisoners re
ceived gifts from friends and relatives.
The governor expressed his pleasure over
conditions as he found them at the Insti
tution. There Is not a single case of sick
ness at the present time, owing to the
perfection of the sanitation of the cell
and the care exercised by the prison of
ficials In caring for the men.
While at the prison the governor was
thanked by Bargent, the Madison county
man who will receive his freedom New
Year's eve, under a commutation Issued a
few days ago. Sargent told the governor
that he will go to one of his two brothers,
who reside in the northwestern part of the
state. The man haa served a longer time
In the penitentiary than any of the other
prisoners, having been committed more
than twelve years ago. He was sentenced
for the murder of his wife.

As I was reading the daily paper I
aw a testimonial of one of your per
manent cures by the Cuticura treat
ment. I know by experience your
medicine is all it claims to be. I had a
baby boy three months old and rcrema
broke out on his head and face. I tried
several kinds of medicine without any
benefi t, and then decided to try Cuticura.
I could see an improvement at once, and
in a very short time he was entirely
healed. lie is now three years old and
a picture of health, thanks to your
great remedies. One of my neighbor's
children was also eured by the use of
Cuticura. She came to me" to ask what
I used for my baby, and I was more
than ready to recommend Cuticura, be
cause of the speedy cure of my baby.
She found the same result that I did.

to the merits of the Cuticura Remedies.
I have tried several treatments for the
blood and complexion, but none gave
entire satisfaction as did the Cuticura
treatment. I advise all to give it a fair
trial. My face was always filled with

Appeal Register of Deeds Decision.
At the office of the clerk of the supreme
court this afternoon It was stated that
motion for a rehearing will be filed tn the
register of deeds case from Gage county
Involving that portion of the biennial leg
Islatlon which affects the office of register.
The act was held to be invalid by the
supreme court tn a memorandum opinion
In October, but the formal decision was
not handed down until December fc, and
the motion for a rehearing will date from
that time in order to get within the rule
which requires such a motion to be made
within forty days. There is a disposition
to make the proposed application for
rehearing play a part In the controversy
over the county commlsslonershlp, which
Is still unsettled In Lancaster county.
The question has arisen because the de

In l'MH. when Burgcs was elected, and he
as also talked of last summer. At the
latter date he was a candidate for the con
gressional nomination to succeed Senator
E. J. Hurkett and that fact, it Is believed.
deterred him from seeking the place.
Recent events have shown that the chair
manship Is a stepping stone tn the higher
things to which politicians aspire, and that
fact Is expected to count with Allen.

morning and his bond of 120.000 was for
mally executed Tuesday afternoon, and all
that now remains Is for Marshal Warner
to take the oath of office.
"I cannot say Just at present as to who
the deputies will be, nor am 1 prepared to
state that the present force will be re

Warner, "from the fact that I have not
yet qualified and do not care to any any
thing about it at this time."
Marshal Warner will remain in Omaha
and establish his domicile here in the near
future. The formal transfer of the office
and its effects was made Tuesday after
noon. There ts much speculation regarding the
personnel of the new deputies. Several ap
plicants are already on the ground with

of the deputies Is l,yo per annum, and
hosts of patriots are willing to make the
sacrifice for the stipend. Five deputies are
to be appointed, one office deputy and four
