(From a Staff Correspondent.)
I4NCOLN, Jan. I. (Special Telenram.)
City Attorney Breen of Omaha appeared
before the state supreme court at noon
today and urged, the diamlasat of tha re
straining order issued yeaterday In tha
rase of Cathera agatnat Treasurer Hen-
nlngs of Omaha, forbidding the latter from
turning over the funda in hla possession to
County Treaaurer Fink. Mr. Breen repre
sented orally to the court that the purpose
of Frank Random, oounarl for Cathera, In
peeking the restraining order, was con
cealed In an order asking tha court to
advance the caae for an early heating.
Mr. Breen declared he had agreed to tha
motion to advance but had no knowledge
salaries of countr clerks, heriffa and treas-
urera. and In formulating the new law had
neglected to re-ensct a apeclal provision for
the salaries of such officials In Douglaa and
Ianeaater counties, the reault being that
the offlccra In those two countlca were
placed on a par with those of other counties
ao far aa salaries are concerned.
County Attorney Slabaugh contended that
aa the new law went Into effect under an
emergency enactment April 1 last, on that
day the salary of the county clerk was re
duced from $2,500 to tf.snn. Wherefore he con
tended that the fees should have been
turned In by Drexel on a $2,&n0 salary basis
up to April 3 and a 11.500 basis after that
time, so that of the 12.475 collected and re
tained by Drexel ho should have turned Into
the county treasury all but $1,739.
H. C. Itrome presented the argument in
support of Irexel's retention of the entire
amount of the fees. Tills caae almllarlv In-
volvea a reduction of salary of the county
treasurer from $3.noo to $2,000 and of the
sheriff from $2,5") to $2,000.

It was granted yesterday by the court.
Mr. Breen communicated by , tele
phone with his office In Omaha and learned
from his assistant that a copy of the mo
tlon to advance, which near Its conclusion
set forth the request for the restraining
order, had been filed with Mr. Breen and
duly receipted for. Mr. Breen said, how
ever, that ha had assumed that Mr. Ran
son wouid Inject nothing Into It not men
tloned In their previous verbal agreement
to advance the case, as a consequence of
which hs was taken completely by surprise
to learn that It contained any mention of
a restraining order.
During the afternoon session Mr. Breen
appeared again, filed a written motion to
vacate the restraining order and presented
Arguments in support thereof.
Bnsy Time for Conrt.
Tha supreme court tried to finish Its work
tonight In order that Judge Holcomb might
give way tomorrow morning, but only par
tially succeeded. A number of opinions
wars handed down at 6 o'clock, with the
intimation that there would be more to
morrow morning. Eight of the twenty-two
opinions filed were Douglas county cases.
In the Jorgenson caae, where the appel
lant had been refused a saloon license at
124 North Tenth street because there were
five In that block, the action of the police
board was upheld. The court says- the
board has tha right. In the exercise of
sound discretion, to refuse a license even
where no protest had been filed.
In the case of Fred K. . Herman against
City of Omaha, the court affirms the dla
trlct oourt aa to street Improvement dis
trict No. BBS. and reversed It aa to dis
tricts 661 and 677. The court holds that
park property Is not subject to taxation,
and that a metropolitan class city cannot
petition itself for street Improvements.
Th Regent Shoe company case against
Haaker, involving use of a mercantile
trademark, was reversed and remanded.
Other Douglas county decisions are:
Cathers against 1.1 n ton, affirmed; Baa-

Contracts for Sapplles.
The State Board of Purchase and Sup
plies was keeping open house today In the
senate chamber, receiving bids for supplies
for the coming quarter at state institu
tions. There were quite a number of bid
ders on hand with samples, so that the
senate chamber looked somewhat like a
section of a department store.
One stirring tilt occurred over tha con
tract for mine run coal, the contending
bidders being Horace P. Miles, representing
the C. B. Havens company of Omaha, and
John Dorgan of this city. It appeared
that Miles had submitted a bid of $4.10 for
the coal, with 25 cents added for delivery,
while Dorgan's bid was $4.06 for the coal
and 30 cents for the delivery. This made
the bids even, but the board awarded the
contract to Dorgan. Mllea presented an
objection, claiming first tha as It was a
tie the board should have flipped a copper,
aa It had done on a former occasion and
thereby lost to him a contract at Grand
Island. Then he claimed the privilege of
changing hla bid, aa the board had allowed
Dorgan to do at the last quarterly re
ception of bids. At that time. Miles
claimed, his bid was the lowest by some
20 cents, but after the bids were opened
Dorgan claimed that his own bid included
the 25 cents intended to be charged for
delivery, which brought his bid 6 cents
lower than that of Miles. This change
was allowed on the ground that It was a
clerical error, and Miles today Insinuated
that he ought this time to be allowed to
correct a clerical error himself. But he
could not get the board together again
for an expression and the contract went to
Dorgan. Miles said it would make a dif
ference of about $300 to the state.
Picket Will Take Seat.
The controversy over whether Robert
Ptckel,- the republican nominee for county
commissioner, would be allowed to take his
seat tomorrow Is practically ended, and un
less something else Intervenes he will be
allowed to take his seat without legal op
position. Lee Newton, whose three years
as commissioner expires this month, for a
time Insisted that the law passed ' last
winter extended his term a year. Picket's
attorneys Insisted that that law was In
valid and that it did not apply to any
county but Douglas, anyway. Newton, who
Is a democrat, had refused a renomlnatlon
and was preparing to move to Colorado.
A proposition was submitted to Picket
that If he would not contest Newton's right
to sit the latter would resign April 1 and

NORTH LOUP. Neb., Jan. 3 (Speclal.)
There are probably few families that can
have a reunion with sixteen brothers and
sisters sttendlng, as did the descendants
of "Elder" Benjamin Clement of North
Loup on New Tear's day. Mr. Clement Is
7 years old. yvt was able to ride twelve
miles to the farm of his oldest son, N. O.
Clement, In Mlra Valley, and est a resl
English holiday dinner with sixteen of his
seventeen living children the largest num
ber he has ever had around him at one
time. The day was spent In "many a gong
and Jest." and In exchanging those "don't
you remembers" that such occasions are
rich In.
Although there were fifty-five present to
enjoy the delights of the day, a numeration
showed that had all the grandchildren and
great grandchildren been there, 102 more
would have been added to the company.
What makes this statement the more In
teresting Is the fact that Mr. Clement has
no relations In the United States except
his own descendants, all the rest of tho
family being British subjects. He himself
has never returned to England since com
ing to America In 1834. In his working
days Mr. Clement was a first-class car
penter, and eight of his nine sons are now
following that trade, the youngest being
principal of the David City High school,
Mr. Clement Is one of Valley county's pio
neers, having settled there with his family
In 1878. His wife was burled at North Loup
In 18S7, and nine of his sons and daughters
still call that home.
'Farmers at Beatrice.
BEATRICE, Neb., Jan. . (Special.V-The
firat day of the Farmers' Institute, which
was held yesterday at the courthouse, was
not very well attended on account of stormy
weather, and yet D. Ward King, the speaker
and apostle of good roads, said the most in
terestlng meeting that he ever held was at
tended by leas than twenty people.
Mr. King described the construction of his
split-log drag as being a log split 'in the
middle, the two pieces connected as a large
ladder. These were to be dragged at such
an angle as to throw the dirt toward the
center of the road, and the work is to be
done after each rain, so as to keep the ruts
and low places filled up and present a sur
face that the water will not stand upon.
While there was nothing new in the
method, the lecture of Mr. King was upon
the line of Inducing farmers to do just what
they know to be the right thing in road
making. Mr. King had photographs to show
roads before and after being worked by his
method. He said that in many Instances
these roads did not cost to exceed $2.50 a
mile to keep them In good order and to
make them as serviceable after a rain as

Tangle la Divorce Case.
HASTINGS, Neb.. Jan. t (Special.V-The
Jurisdiction of the district court here to
consider the Celpelka divorce annulment
proceedings was questioned today by the
filing of a special appearance on behalf
of the defendant. Dr. Celpelka. a physi
cian of means, who Is In practice at Crete,
was granted a divorce two years ago.
His wife, Cornelia Celpelka, who Is
sister of a high official in the Bohemian
government, has asked to have the decree
set aside, basing her motion on the alle
gation that she was not served with
notice of the suit . and that her husband
'was not a resident of this county when
the divorce was given. The doctor now
contends that as both he and Mrs. Cel
pelka are not residents of this county the
court has no Jurisdiction to try the Issue.
Mrs. Celpelka came from Bohemia, In
search of her husband about four months
ago and Is now In Crete awaiting the out
come of the suit. She says she wants the
divorce set aside In order that the stain
upon her character may be removed.

The Healthfulness of
January Weather
How Dr. Hartman Avoids
Colds and Catarrhal
the host for health, the beet for baslneaa, the)
best for pleasure, the beat for reereatlon.
The trying weather of November and De
cember have passed and mnM people hare be
come acclimated to winter weather.
Pr. Hartman, In seaktng of catarrhal
disease prevalent during Jsnuarjr, among other thing, said: "Notwithstanding
January is a midwinter month, fewer cases of chronic catarrh are acquired
during this mouth than any other month of the rear, with the possible excep
tion of October."
He went on to say, "The healthfulness of January weather, however,
should not put people off their gnard. There are many little rules that should
be carefully observed. '
"For Instance, the feet should be kept dry. The hands and wrists kept
warm. Sleeping rooms should be well ventilated. The throat gargled with cold
water every morning. All these are excellent preventives to catching coltl
or acquiring catarrh."
The Doctor further said, "During a long
and busy life I'have never omitted these de
tails. In addition to these, I always have a
bottle of lVruna In my room. If I have a slight
cough or hoarseness, the least sign of sore
throat or sneezing, I take a few doses of re
runs, and the dlfflcultr disappears.
"I have used Peruna very nearly all my life, and I attribute my hale and
hearty old age to use of Teruna. 1 know many other old people who can aay
the same.
"While "January Is a salubrious month, yet caution should be observed
Those who have chronic catarrh ailments should be warned that the health
fulness of January weather is not sufficient to benefit catarrhal diseases. It
can be assumed that the catarrh is of a grve nature. A course of I emn
should be resorted to.
Peruna," says Dr. Hartman, "is my own
remedy for catarrhal diseases, whether acute
or chronic. From the slightest cold to the
most settled and stubborn catarrh, I use
rerun a and Peruna only, and certainly my
success In treating catarrhal diseases ought
to be a guarantee that Pemna Is an efficient remedy.
"I have received many interesting letters from those who have taken
Peruna, telling me the value of Peruna In preserving health, preventing dls
ease and relieving catarrhal ailments. One letter that I recall at this time
is from Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Klee of 215 East Fourth street, Topeka, Kan.
Mr. Klee said:
"We are both much pleased with Peruna and do not hesitate to praise it
on every occasion. ,
"My wife took Peruna for liver trouble and a run-down condition incident
to the same. A few bottles built up her health and strength.
"I took Peruna for a cold which settled in my kidneys, giving me much
pain. In two weeks I was much better and in a few months I waa well. We
keep It on hand all the time, in case we take cold."
Another correspondent, Mr. Fred Derseweh of Bldgetop, Tenn., has used
Peruna in his family for five years. Among other things, he says:
"We have used Peruna in our family for five years. It is one of the best
medicines I know of. I and my wife and our thirteen children do not need a
doctor since we use Peruna."
