in Cuticura Remedies for Skin
ANOTHER WONDERFUL .
CURE BY CUTICURA
"I had an eruption appear on my

and downwards, so that my neck and
face were all broken out ; also my anus
and tha lower liinbg as far aa the knee.
J at first thought it was prickly heat.
But soon scales or trust formed where
the breaking out was. - Instead of going
to ft physician, I purchased ft complete
treatment of the Cuticura, Remedies, In '
which I had great faith, and all wag
satisfactory. A year or two later the
eruption appeared again, only a little
lower; Dai before it had time to spread
I procured another supply of the Cuti
eura Remedies, and continued their use
until the cure was complete. It is now
fire years since the- last -attack, and
have not seen any signs of a return. I
have taken about three bottles of the
Cuticura Resolvent, and do not know
how much of the Boap or Ointment, aa
I always keep them with me; probably
one half dosen of each.
"I decided to give the Cuticura Rem
ftdiee trial after I had seen the results
of their treatment of ecseoift on an
infant belonging to one of our neigh
bors. The parent took the child to the
nearest physician, but his treatment did
too good. 80 they procured the Cuticurs.

DBS MOINES. March 19. (Special.) The
senate this afternoon passed without Op
position two Important bills. One is the bill
introduced by Temple In the house, and
which was drawn by the attorney general,
and provides that of property In the hands
of receivers the state shall hava prior
claim for taxes. It Is asserted that th
state baa lost hundreds of thousands of
dollar because of the absence of such a
The other measure passed was house file
No. 36, by Wright, which allows greater
latitude In the manner of bringing suit
against common carriers for, damages to
shipments in transit over more than one
line of road. The bill has already passed
the house. It allows suit to be brought In
any county of the state through which any
one of the roads carrying the shipment
pnsses. provided the shipper lives there. It
provides that companies carrying the ship
ment can be made to Join In the Issues and
notice of suit can be served on tha station
agent of any1 or the roads carrying the ship
ment. After increasing the amount from $S,(XW
to 17.000 the spnate today paased the bill to
provide for dedicating all the monuments
erected on southern battlefields to the

It is expected that the appointment of a
member of the State Board of Control to

sideration. It is believed now that W. H".

hotel, a former owner of' tha Register and
Lender and a man of large property Inter

and as at first ngured up by the ways and

It will be nearly IICO.OhO less than that. As
the committees have recommended for pas
sage bills aggregating 9o.K3 this leaves
only a trifle over IjO.'JOO aval'Hble for addi

evident every day that there must be a

SIDNEY. 1h.. March 19. (Special!
Sheriff C. T. Kent got back today from
Walla Walla. Wash., with II. Claude D ".
former vice president of the Slate bunk
of Tabor, who was Indicted on five counts
at the last session of the grand Jury. Ha
Is charged with forget les amounting to
over $13,000. The names and amounts
forged are as follows: I F. Trowbridge,
$2,500; J. F. Oreen. $2,5ft: W. O. Gregory,
$3,000; Sylvester Dye (his father). $6,000;
R 8. Roberts. $700. At Walla Walla Dye
was engaged as an expert accountant upon
the books of the city officials, being In
the employ of a 8eattle firm which fur
nishes experts in ferreting out frauds In
public and private accounts. It has been
reported that Dye was on the eve of de
parting for Alaska when arrested, but ttds
story lacks confirmation. He came bacg
willingly, without making a fight of any
kind, nnd told Sheriff Kent that If he had
wired him he would have come alone. Upon
his arrival at Sidney he was Immediately
released on bonds, which were fixed at
$3,800 and furnished by his father, three
of his father's brothers and G. E. Smith
of Council Bluffs. The names on the bond
are good for several hundred thousand.
Dye's lawyers are W. E. Whltehlll of
Sidney and Mr. Flickenger of Council
Bluffs. The acoused Is cheerful and In
good spirits, but has nothing whatever to
say concerning his case. Court begins on
the 20th, but It is not thought that Dye
will be tried this term.
Mrs. Dye Is lii Seattle. One of her sis

is reported to have been driven Insane

ST. PETERSBURG, March 19. As the
elections proceed there Is more and more,
evidence of the virtual exclusion from par
ticipation of the radical elements of the
population. The preliminary stages of the
elections will rob the national assembly of
much of Its nntlonal character. Its au
thority tospeak will be absolutely denied
by the proletariat organisation, which bote
the brunt of the fight for liberty. Com
plaints of Interference and durress In tha
country districts are incresslng. Many
flagrant lnstnnces are cited of the terrorism
nf local officials In preventing a fres ex
pression of the peasants and often prac
tically compelling the, selection of priests
and vilhign elders. The seeming apathy of
the small land owners assemblies, at which
n average of only 10 per cent of the voters
were present. It. explainable by the feeling
that they were not free to choose.
Carefully collected Information from the
outlaying Industrial districts' today showa
that the elctlons were a complete farce.
Nominally eleven out of the thirty-nine
working groups entitled to participate
elected twenty out of fifty-seven delegates
to the convention, which will select eighteen
representatives for the city.
The convention which in turn elects for
St. Petersburg, .six members of the national
assembly. In reality the number of work
men participating was Infinitesimal. Borne
of them held meetings and discuased the
advisability of par'tlAipatinff. Uut the great
mass simply withdrew declaring that dur
ing the present reign of terror the design
ation of their real choice' was equivalent to
turning over tha men to the police. In tha
big Okhta and Moscow districts not" a
single man has been elected, the railroad
employes unanimously refused to vote until
the Imprisoned, member of their organ
ization are released from Jail. .
