to examinations which ao many physi

treat the disease; and this is the rea

This is also the reason why thousands

besides, but it all failed to do me any good. I
had female trouble and would dailyhave faint

my monthly periods were very irregular and
finally ceased. I wrote to you for your ad
vice and rwlved a letter fall of lnctructioua

Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,

take one drink and stop at that, yet It
cannot be gainsaid that the man who takes
one drink will take the second some time
and the third some other time. I only
hope all my men would abxtaln totally
from Intoxicating drink. In this day and

wits about them, and the police department
Is no exception to the rule."

teeship laws of the government aa bearing
upon the raae of the Indians. The attor
neys for Lincoln hold the opposite view,
and bsse their contention upon the Brewer
decision, which gives to Indian allottees
of lands the lights of any other cltlaon
and the right to exercise the common
functions of a cltisen, including the right
to absorb as much liquor as he can hold,
as welt as to absorb It at any point he may
feel disposed, be It on sn Indian reserva
tion or otherwise.'
Lincoln was tried and convicted under
the Indictment charging him with Intro
ducing liquor onto the reservation, and .in
appeal at once was taken to the United
States surpreme court for a writ of habere
corpus, and the hearing on this application
will be held April 19. at Washington, the
interests of the government being looked
after by the Department of Justice, and
those of the Indian by Thomss L. 81ns n.
Upon the decision of the supreme court In
this case will hinge the disposition of the
several cases now pending In the United

Nebraska, and especially Omaha, should

The building stands on a lot 44x102 snd
is five stories in height, being constructed
ot brown pressed brick snd the interior
finished in the most pleasing style. All the

green and highly polished, giving a very
elaborate effect. There are two elcvaiorj,
one freight and one passenger. Two snow

enough ; to accommodate half a dosei,
pianos. The general salesroom occupies the
entire first floor while the second floor la

Kamoaa Maaafaetarer Talks.
Mr. J. V". Steger, the manufacturer ot
the famous Steger piano, passed through
Omaha Tuesdsy and stopped to see Mr.
Schmoller and his building. In speaking
of the latter he pronounced It the most
complete and largest Institution of its kind
In the entire west and was emphatic In his
statement that Omaha people should be
proud of this Institution.
Mr. Steger said: "I knew Billy Schmoller
when we were both boys In Southern Ger
msny. I left Schmoller In Berlin when 1
was 17 yeara of age and came to America,
eventually drifting to Chicago. Having a
practical education in the piano line I en
gaged in the piano business and today
am one of the biggest manufacturers ot
pianos and ship my product to all parts
of the world and have In my employ 2,900
people. A number of yeara ago I founded
Steger, 111., now a prosperous town ot
several thousand inhabitants. What Mr.
Schmoller has accomplished by honest
methods and a good business head you
11 know, but It Isn't generally known that
he came to this country a total stranger
with but a few rente In his pockets."
