Dysr-epsla certainly puts the best of men
out of condition for work -of any kind.

Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are recog
nised throughout the length and breadth
of .the land as the one cure that'a'safe and
sure. Their unbounded popularity result
ing from the thousands and thousands of
cures they hnve effected, prove beyond the
shadow of a doubt' their greatness as a
cure. Wherein Ilea their greatness? In
tha very fact that they are nature'a own
simple remedy. They do the exact work
In exactly the same way that the digestive
fluids of the stoniach do because they are
composed of exactly the same elements
and possess the same properties. They re
lieve the weak and worn out stomach of
Its burden of digestion and permit it with
out let or hindrance to rest and grow
sound and well. The stomach will get well
quick enough tn lta own natural way If It
la let alone. That is what Stuart's Dy
spepsia Tablets do. They not only let it
alone themselves, but make the food taken
Into tha stomach do the same.
Ton can satisfy yourself of ths truth of
this statement by putting the food you
would eat Into a glass Jar with sufficient
water and one of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
ids. The 'process of digestion will be
taken up and carried' out Just aa the gas
tric Juice and other digestive fluids would
do it. Their action Is natural and they
reuse no .disturbance in the 'digestive or
gans. In fact, you forget you have a
stomach when they begin to do their work,
so mild and natural, Is ' the operation.

Recommendations of President.
In his annual -address. President Mellor
of tha agricultural board said that, while
the collective county exhibits were a
great attraction at the fair, many of the
exhibitors were not satlsfled with tne
manner of distributing the premiums, con
sequently Mr. Mellor recommended dividing
tha state Into four districts and the
counties In the districts must score a
certain number of points before being al
lowed to participate In the premium
money. Mr. Mellor made tha following
After careful deliberation. It Is our opin
ion that the Important matters for con
sideration at this time are:
1. To pass a resolution permanently lo
cating the secretary's office at Uncoln.
t. To consider the building of all tne
permanent walks possible.

railroads this year aa has been success
fully worked many times before."
That Is the way Representative Caldwell
of Clay county expressed himself Moi.tlay
I hope tha papers of the state will warn
th) ppj, to look out tor the favorite son
racket. A county should refuse to endorse
man lust because he Is a resident of
that county unless the people know posi

some chances of winning. If they don't

..The rCOT6 0f every man nominated
nould doaely examined and no man
should be put on the ticket who Is not

that kind of men it will not elect Us
We in Clay county have pledged our-
Bev.a to vote for the man, this year, irre
gDeCuVe of politics, and I take it, the si-ntl
ment of Clay county la the sentiment of
eVery county In tha. state. I see no reason
why clay county should feel that way
and no other county have tha same Idea.

the railroads are working night and day

about the promised anti-pass bill which the
next legislature will enact I have heard
It reported that railroad i men are aaylng
that they expect a freight rata bill, and
that aa they have lost their tax suit the
people should not do anything in regard
to passing an anti-pass law. If we don't

committee should be appointed for the pur

One Ofllee and Two Claimants.
The Hyland-Coney controversy over the
office of county superintendent of Wayne
county has reached the supreme court. At
torney W. W. Young of Star.'.on having
an thi. .nornlna- for a writ of man-
, , -
j . 1 r,..al Mi- Vlvlunl tn lurn tha
uaiiiiia J wioyvi - - - "
office over to Mr. Coney, who received a
majority of the votes at the election last
fall. Hyland, who was the county super
intendent at the time of the election, Is
holding onto ths office because Coney se
cured his first grade certificate under the
new certification law by an examination
which begun November 4. Though tha de
partment at Uncoln ruled that the certifi
cate should be dated on the day of the
beginning of the examination and
Hyland should retire, Hyland refused to
abide by the decision, hence the suit.
Coney waa nowflnatrd for the office by the
republicans during his absence rrom the
county and was not aware that a new
certification law had been enacted and only
learned tt through a communication rrom
the state superintendent Just before elec
tion. He hastily took the examination and
was awarded his ' certificate. After tha
election he died hla bond with the demo
cratic Board or County Supervisors, but
the board rvfust-d to recognise It.
Insurance Department Anxious.
The Insurance department is getting
anxious ror an opinion rrom the supreme
court In the case involving the validity or
the reciprocal tax law. Just at thla time
the department is trying to get the com
panies to pay up without waiting ror a de
cision rrom the courts, but, or course, none
of the companies are responding, though
several of them owe from $5,000 to $;.000.
Auditor Searle Is afraid that if the state
wins the rase these companies which owe
ao much will Just drop out or the state and
will refuse to pay their back taxes. Thla
will necessitate a suit which will have to
be filed in the state where the companies
are organised, entailing much cost and
trouble. The rase haa been decided both
waya by the court and haa been argued In
alt five times and la still In the hands of tha
History of Bends Defective.
Because Attorney General Brown held
today that the history of the Idaho state
bonds, which the state had contracted to
buy. waa not properly authenticated the
tate will not close the contract. The Board
of Kducatloual lands snd Funds had agreed
lu take builds to- the amuuut of $50,M and
later thf" board expected to buy $3n0,CW
more as the Investment for the permanent
sohool fund is considered better than the
Massachusetts bonds. If the officials of
Idaho properly authenticate the history of
the bonds they will be bought aa the at
torney generU and the beard believe they
were legally Issued.

This company was organised twenty
years ago, with a capital stock of $4,600,

Talks Good and Wall.
Representative Howe of Nemaha county.
who is here attending the agricultural
meetings, is doing a little missionary work
for Senator Good for state treasurer and
John Wall for governor.
"A Good-Wall combination would be
about the right thing," said Mr. Howe last
night. "They are both fine men and both
are capable of attending to the duties of
the state In a manner that would be satis
factory to the people. We expect to nom
inate Good because we know him. If the
people over the state knew him as we do
then there would be no doubt of his nom
ination. He Is thoroughly reliable and Is a
square man In every sense of the word."

placed by the side of the son, who preceded
him but a few months In death.
The announcement was made tonight that
his successor would be his brother, J. N.
Field of Manchester, England, who will
take charge of all the houses. J. N. Field
has for years been at the head of the Man
chester Field business and has general
charge of all the foreign business of the
firm. He has not been in Chicago for years,
Sketch of Career.
, Marshall Field was without question the
greatest and most successful merchant or
his generation and he was one or the
world's richest men, his wealth being esti
mated at anywhere rrom $100,000,000 to $?00,
000,000. He was a native or Conway, Mass.
where he waa born in 1835. His rather wns
a farmer and Mr. Field obtained his educn
tlon In the public schools of Conway. At
the age of 17 he became a clerk In a gen
eral country store at Plttsfleld, Mass.,
where he remained for four years. He
went to Chicago In 1868 and began hla ca
reer in that city as a clerk In tha whole
sale dry goods establishment of Cooley,
Wadsworth Co. During the four years
that he remained with this house he showed
marked commercial ability and In 1880 he
waa given a partnership. The late Levy Z.
Letter was alao connected with. the firm,
and In 1866 the two young men withdrew
and, in company with the late Potter Pal4
mer, tney organised tne nrm or Field, pal
mer & Letter, which continued until 1A67,
when Mr. Palmer withdrew and the firm
became Field, Lelter & Co. This continue.1
until 1881, when Mr. Lelter retired and tha
firm became known as Marshall Field
Co., aa It is today. The house forged to
the front very rapidly and It is now the
largest institution of Its kind in the world,
with numerous branches throughout Europe
and Asia. Its remarkable success Is at
tributed almost entirely to Mr. Field and
his methods. He paid cash for everything
he bought, not only In connection with his
dry goods enterprise, but for all hts deal
ings In real estate and in other investments.
The great fire of 1871 was the only reverse
ever experienced by the house of Marshall
Field & Co. Its losses at that tlma aggre
gated over $1,000,000.
In 1872 the wholesale department waa sep
arated from the retail atore and the latter
now covers a city square and Is located in
buildings twelve stories In height
While building up the dry goods store
which has grown to such mammoth pro
portions, Mr. Field, who was a nrm believer
In the future of ' Chicago, Invested
heavily In real estate and to the appreci
ation of thla in value he owed much of hi
At the close of the World's fair In 1893, j
Mr. Field endowed with $1,000,000 the mu
seum now known aa the Field Columbian
museum, for which a home home valued at
$8,000,000 is shortly to be erected In tha
heart of the city. He later gave to th
Unlveraity ot Chicago land valued at $460,000,
to be used for athletic purposes, and a
portion of It la known today aa Marshal
field. He waa extremely charitable In other
directions, never falling to contribute to a
cause which he knew to be worthy.
Personally Mr. Field was a handsome
man. a trill above medium height, slender
and wall-proportioned. H waa very popu
lar socially, although he never mingled In
society as the word la generally understood.
In hia personal tastes and habits ha was
quiet and modest. In politics he never In
terfered, although h was alwaya ready
to aid with time and money any movement
looking toward better national or municipal
government. He waa prominently men
tioned aa a vice presidential candidate on
the demorcatlc ticket in 1904. He waa sev
eral timea offered th second place on th
ticket, but refused to accept it. One night
ha was called up at hia home in thla city
by the Associated Press and for the second
tlma within a week aaked If he Intended to
accept the nomination. He declared that ha
did not and aald:
"There la no need of the Associated Press
asking me this queation again. It has my
authority to deny tha atory as often aa it
likes, no matter where it cornea from."
Mr. Field waa twice married, his first
wife having died several years ago. Mrs.
Field lert two children, Ethel, now married
. ,., , , ," ' , . ,
residing in Leamington, England, and
Marshal Field, Jr., who accidentally ahot
j hlmseir at his home in Chicago November
22, 1906, and died five day later. September
1906, Mr. Field waa married In London,
England, to Mrs. Caton, tha widow of
Arthur Caton of Chicago.
Intereata tn Nebraska.
Marshall Field had the foresight and
brains to figure out twenty yeara ago that
there waa money In the fertile land of
Stanton county, Nebraska. At that time
he bought a ranch of 7,000 acrea, 1,000 acres
of which are now in alfalfa and tame hay,
1,200 acrea under cultivation and the re
mainder of the land In the best of pasture.
Tha price at which the land waa bought
waa only nominal. Today it would readily
sell for $0 per acre. Stanton Breeding farm,
tha business name or the ranch, la the home
or over 600 pure bred Hereford cattle. Many
Individual antmala from thla herd have gone
to the leading live atock shows and state
falra and In th hottest contests have won
their share or honora. But tha Hereford

of It. Th pur bred cattle are valued at
about $80,000, while the 2.000 steers and grad
cattle of other aorta are valued at aomo
thing like $160,000. About 2.000 steers. 1,000
sbsep and 1,000 hogs are fed and ahlpped
from thla ranch each year. Probably one
third of theae steers are bred and raised
on the farm and the remainder are range
Marshall Field had not made a trip to tha
ranch alnce 1898. Each year he sent out

ranch and conditions. For the last ten

In the case of one filing procured by th
wltnesa of one McKlbbon an objection was
made to the entry being Introduced In evi
dence, as It waa shown th land filed on
waa In' Thomas and not In Hooker county.
The court sustained the objection on the
ground the Indictment charges th overt
acts complained of were all in Hooker
county, and that evidence of filings out
side of Hooker county could be Introduced
under the indictment. However, the at
torncya were given permission to be heard
on the proposition, and the Jury waa ex
cused at 11:30 until the question could be
S. R. Rush, attorney for the government,
held the McKlbbon filing was a part of the
same transaction and agreement; that the
McKlbbon filing was Just across the line of
Hooker county In Thomas county and In
timately associated with all the other trans
actions In the matter of detail and time.
Final Proof and Deed.
It will be shown by tne government that
In the McKlbbon case final proof was made
of the land and that McKlbbon deeded It
over to one Wheeler, a Dead wood banker,
at the suggestion of Ware, but that the
deed was actually made to the V. B. I.
ranch corporation and for Its benefit, and
that McKlbbon was paid his $160 by I Jim
bert upon the execution or the deed. This
McKlbbon transfer is the only absolute
transfer by deed that has thus far been
shown during the trial. The government
relies strongly upon this transaction as an

In the indictment referred to lands in
Hooker county only.
Upon the conclusion or Mr. Mahoney's
argument Judge Munger stated that the
McKlbbon matter would be passed until
Pending the decision In the McKlbbon
matter, the direct examination or Lambert
was adjourned to a later date. The at
torneys for the defense announced that
the cross-examination of Lambert would
not be undertaken until after his direct
examination had been completed.
Register Whitehead was then recalled to
Identify certain filings on record in the
Broken Bow land office for 1904.
Witness Tells Something Good.
The dry proceedings or the afternoon v. ere
somewhat enlivened by the witness. Sun
ford B. Brown of the Grand Islund Sol
diers' Home. He testified as to making
an original homestead filing In 1903 at the
Instance of Harry Welsh and a subsequent
filing of three quarters In 1904 under the
Klnkald law within the U. B. I. enclosure
at Lambert's instigation. His testimony
was similar to that ot the first witntsa,
John C. Blue, relative to1 leasing the land
for ninety-nine yeara for $1 through Welsh
and Lambert to War and that they were
paid $150 for the land when they made ilnal
proof. He told a atory about the time
they went up to look at their land af tor the
first filing. '
"We were driven out to the land from
Mullen," he aald, "and found a lot of
boarda acattered around, th shacks having
blowfr down. Then we went over to the
ranch and stayed all night. W didn't
sleep on the land at all. All of our ex
penses were paid and we were furr.iiihed
round trip tickets from Grand Island to
Mullen and Broken Bow. We went- up to
the land three or four tlmea and our ex
penses were alwaya paid. I never Intended
to live on the land at all."
Mlatake that Caused Friction.
The wltnesa told of a mistake having
been made in his final proof papers and
tha proof waa rejected. He had some
words with Lambert regarding tha telln
qulshment of his homestead and they r
not now on good terms. At the outset he
"believed that everything that Lambert
told them waa tha truth aa he seemed to I
be running it. He was the proprietor of '
the hotel at Mullen, where we a.wuya '
stopped. The leases were returned to us
last spring by Foreman Hoffgard or the
U. B. I. ranch. They were brought to us
tn person. This was after Blue went up
to Deadwooa to aee war. The leases re
turned to' me were mine, Bunn's, Blue's and
John Harmon's and I handed them back
to the partlea they belonged to."
Mr. Mahoney began the cross-examina
tion of the witness, and had barely got
atarted into it when the hour for adjourn
ment arrived and a recess was taken until
o'clock Wednesday morning.
