LINCOLN. June 20. (Special Telegram.)
Vpon rehearing the former opinion of the
supreme court Quashing the bill of excep
tion! In the, Case of the state against Wil
liam A- Paxton and other official bonds
men of ex-State Treasurer Joseph Hartley,
a suit to recover a shortage of over IVio.WW,
Is adhered to, Judge J. B. Letton writing
the opinion. '
The bill of exceptions In the district court
from iJouglas county, filed by the atate
during 'Attorney General Proufs term of
office, on Ihe fifth trial of the case, was
quashed, the supreme court holding It waa
not properly authenticated. A motion for
rehearing ' waa filed by Attorney General
Frown who asserted the court erred In Ita
decision. The rehearing was allowed
mainly upon the state's contention that
by submitting the cast' on brlets the mo
tion to quash the bill of exceptions had
been waived by the bondsmen and the
court should therefore have to consider
the case upon the evldrnce furnished by the
purported WH of exceptions.
A motion 'Was filed to vacate the order
granting a rehearing and to adhere to the
former opinion on the grounds that the
motion to quash was submitted to the
court by agreement of parties at the same
time Its 'submission was made upon the
merits, and that the former opinion as to
the bill of exceptions Is correct. No entry
m-as made on the record showing that the
motion to quash and the main esse had
been submitted together. The court says
It Is now admitted by the state that by
agreement of both parties the motion to
quash was submitted at the same time
as the main rase and therefore' waa prop
erly considered by the court.
Failure to Certify la Fatal.
In view of the Importance of the case the
court says it has again examined the pur
ported bill of exceptions. The court says
the whole difficulty rests In the failure to
properly Identify a certsln collection of
papers marked "Volume 2. Bill of Excep
tions." The certificate of the clerk of the
district court to the . volumes of tran
scripts of the pleadings that "the bill of
exceptions hereto attached la the original
bill of exceptions, etc." This certificate
, makes no mention of more than one volume
of the bill of exceptions and implies the
existence of only one volume. It is true
that contained In volume I there Is a
stipulation of counsel and a certificate of
the trial Judge and by the stenographer that
the bill of exceptions consists of two vol
ume The court further says: "The diffi
culty in the present case, however, is that
the papers marked' volume II have no cer
tlflcate . whatever, , either" of the stenog
raplier. the trial Judge or the clerk of the
district court, showing that they formed
a part of the, bill of exceptions In this
case." '.: ,v
The court, analyses the argument of the
attorney general, jolnts out the discrep
ancy between the title of the case certi
fied to-by Hh clerk of the district court
and the transcript and the title of the
causo Verified In Volume I of the bill of
exceptions, also of the title endorsed upon
the cover Of the purported volume if, re
fers tovn conipH-te exposition of . the doc
VVd ; the . ryka of fUiUj irpuft .wltH
reference to, the .authentication of bills of
exceptions and points out that even though
a bill of exceptions has been allowed and
settled by the judge and has his signature
attached thereto showing auch allowance,
this would not be )n compliance with the
statutes, and the bill could not be con
sidered unlesa further authenticated by the
proper certificates made by the clerk of
the district court. Therefore volume II,
being utterly unauthenttcated. cannot be.
considered, and since It Is apparent that
volume I does not contain all the testi
mony, '.t cannot aid the court In determin
ing the question presented, and the former
pin of Commissioner Duffle Is ad

Black Splotches AH Over Face
Produced Severe Itching Year's
Treatment by Physicians Did No
Good and Became Despondent
Affected Parts Now Clear as Ever
CURE BY THE
"Ibotjt four years ago I was afflicted
with black splotches ail over my facs
nd a few covering my body, which
produced a severe itching irritation, and
w hich caused me a great deal of annoy
anoe and suffering, to such an extent that
I was forced to call in two of tbs leading
physicians of my town. After s thor
ough examination of the dreaded com
plauit they announced it to be skin
enema in its worst form. They treated
me for the same for the length of one
year, but the treatment did me no good.
"Finally I became despondent and
decided to dincontinue their services.
Shortly afterwards, my husband in read
ing copy of s weekly New York
paper taw an advertisement of the Cuti-
. curft Remedies. ' He purchased the en-
' tire outfit, and alter uting the contents
of the first bottle of Cutieura Resolvent
in connection with the Cutieura Soap
; and Ointment, the breaking out entirely
stopped- I continued the use of the
Cut icura Remedies for six months, and
" after that very splotch was entirely
gone and the affected parts were left as
, clear as ever. I have not felt a sytnp-
, torn of the ecsema. since, which was three
. years ago.
"The Cutieura Remedies not only
cured me of that dreadful disease,
ecsema, but other complicated trouble
as well: sod I have been the means of
others being cured of the same disease
by the Cutieura Remedies, and I don't
hesitate i saying that the Resolvent
is the best blood medicine that the world
has ever known." Iisxie E. Sledge,

At the Argument on the Packages.
The husband of an Ohio woman brought
home some packages of .Grape-Nuts one
evening and there waa much discussion,
but let her . tell the story.
"Two years ago I waa thin and sickly
and suffered so from Indigestion, waa very
nervous, and could not sleep gt night. I was
not able physically or mentally to per
form my duties and waa constantly under
the care of our physician. I had tried plain
living and all the different remedies
recommended by friends but got no better.
"One day my husband brought horns
two yellow boxes and said, v 'The grocer
wants us to try this food andreport how
we like It. he thinks it will help you.' I
read all it said -on the boxes about Grape
Nuts and I remember how I laughed at
It. for -1 thought It foolish to think food
could help me. But the next meal wa all
ate some with cream. We liked and en
Joyed the dellcloualy crisp and new flavor
so wa kept on using Grape-Nuts, not be
cause we thought It would cure me but
because we liked It.
"At that time we had no Idea what the
raeults would be but now I am anxious to
have the world know that today I am a
well and strong woman physically and
mentally. I gained over SO peunds, do not
suffer from any of the old alls and I know
that It is to Grape-Nuts alone that I owe
my restored health. They call m. 'Grape
Nuts' here In the house and all of my
friends have asked me the cause of It alL
I have persuaded several of tham to uae
Grapa-Nuts and every one of th.m who
haa done so has been benefited and I wish
It were In my power to Induce everyone
who la sick to give this wonderful food a
trial. We still have Grape-Nuts three times
a day and never tire of It." Name given
by Post urn Co., Battle Creek, Mich.

Mass Meeting nt Broken How For
mally Launches Custer Candidate.
BROKEN BOW, Neb.. June .-Speciai.)
At a mass meeting of cltlsens of Broken
Bow this evening, held at the court hou:e,
Hon. Frank M. Currle publicly announced
that he waa an active candidate for the
nomination for United States senator and
that he would use all honorable means ,o
secure the nomination and election. The
meeting was called to order by L. H. Jw
ett and then Mayor W. A. George was
elected chairman. Frank M. Curries old
neighbors and friends were enthusiastic
for him for senator. Many speeches were
made, all bringing out the qualities of
Frank M. Currle for the position. D. V.
Joyner, deputy treasurer of Custer county:
Joseph Plgmart, county clerk; Rev. Harvey
M. Plnckney, county superintendent, and
Gus Humphrey, county Judge, were present
and spoke favoring Frank M. Currle.
D. V. Joyner offered a resolution which
received a second to the effect that the
mass meeting unitedly request the county
convention to permit Hon. Frank M. Currie
to select bis own delegates to the stste con- j
venuon. ine mass meeting was willing to
pass the resolution, but Mr. Currie ob
jected, saying that'' he never did select his
own delegates to any convention: that he
was against the method on principle and
that he did not want the resolution passed.
Currle said that he knew If the county
convention was friendly to him It would
select men friendly to his Interests and that
he could always trust his friends; that If
the convention was unfriendly to him he
did not want the delegation.
I. A. Rennau, who had charge of Currle's
political interests while he was In Mexico,
stated that Currie would go to the state
convention with one-third of the delegates,
who would vote for Frank M. Currle from
the beginning. In talking with different
prominent politicians, they believe that
Edward Roaewater will be stronger than
Norris Brrrwn In 'the state convention, but
that the old enemies of Mr. Rosewater will
give Mr. Currle the lead and result in Cur
rle being nominated.
A resolution waa passed authorising the
chairman, W. A. George, to appoint a com
mittee of five to promote Mr. Currle's can
didacy. GRASD CHAPTER OF THE P. E. O.
