thna that we have winter, spring, summer and autumn catarrh. Catarrh
of autumn Is likely to assume a systemic character, that Ir, the Internal
orfrana of the whole' nysUni txH-oine sllijlitly itffected, producing a cou
ditlon closely resembling chronic malaria.
Sometimes an epedeinlc of ('atarrlial fever will frreviule a locality,
lmnlatlng Typhoid fever. It is sometimes difficult to dlHtlnguinh
between catarrhal fever and the genuine Typhoid.
A congested condition of the bronchial tubes producing a cough, with
the usual symptoms of a cold, are frequently associated with systemic
catarrh. A cold or a rough during the autumn season has special sig
nificance and Pernua should be promptly used according to the direc
tiona to be found on each bottle. Peruna is not only a preventive, but m
reliable remedy for systenic catarrh.

Mlcsourl avenue Is In for another chapter
In Its checkered career. Ths work has
as;ln ceased by order of Contractor Hugh
Murphv. Turing the last week no work
has been done because of the heavy rains.
hut It now appears that the contractor
evidently expected another estimate from
the meeting of the council of Thursday
evening. He called up the city clerk from
Lincoln during the" afternoon and asked
If there was a warrant there for him. On
learning that there was none ho appeared to
grow angry and said: "Those fellows havs
rrogram to carry out and they haven't
done It." The clerk replied that he knew
of no program. "That's all right." said
Mr. Murphy, "they came and begged tne
to begin the work and old me what they
would do. I'm done. ' I won't turn a
The city engineer declared that over
fT.OtH) had been allowed (or ths paving
already, which was fully as much as the
work done and In addition the value of the
material which has been plied on the
ground. He said: "Mr. Murphy has had
every estimate he has aaked for." .
It appears that there Is an understanding,
tacit at least, between the mayor and ths
contractor to the effect that the latter was
to receive weekly estimates, not only on
what work was actually dona during the
week, but also on what he Intended to ac
complish the following week. Perhaps It
Is this feature which Is troubling Mr.
Murphy at present. This could not bs
verified as Mayor Hoctor left last night
for St.. Louis and will not be back for a
The attitude of the council, as exhibited
on the presentation of the three former
estimates, has Indlcsted that they were not
well acquainted with the agreements which
were to Insure the speedy pavement of
Missouri avenue. Borne of them have been
Inclined to Question whether or not the
estimates were not In excess of the work
done. Kffotts will be made to get a fair
understanding, but the paving will prob
ably be hung up at least until the. mayor
Howe to Hie for Salary.
K. I Howe, former city treasurer, has
announced his intention ot suing the city
for $111.11. which amount represents to him
the alleged unpaid balance -of salary due
him. The bill arose In the final settlement
of the affairs of his office preparatory to
retiring In favor of the democratic Incumb
ent. Most of the new officials took their
offices about April 17, but In the case of
the treasurer, Mr. Howe served In the
office until Anrll SO. on which dsts the
present treasurer receipted him for all the j
funds In the treasury and afterward took
charge of the office. Previous to this date,
though the deputy wss In the ofBcs con
stantly and the treasurer was there dally,
Mr. Howe was the offlclnl Incumbent, or
so It Is claimed by his attorney. His nam
was affixed to al) tax receipts and other
official papers requiring the signature of
the city treasurer. On this hoi bases his
claim for a full month's pay of fl.8. The
council allowed him loo. 65, leaving a bal.
ance of 1111.11. The council further al
lowed C. X. Melcher, the Incoming treas
urer, the 1111.11, being the portion of tha
month's salary due after April 15. Mr.
Howe and his attorney are confident that
they can collect the salary In question. It
Is a question In the minds of some as to
whether the city or the treasurer, Mr.
Melcher, would, In that case, be the loser
by ths transaction.
Sewer Contract Enjoined.
True to his promise James Plvonka yes
terday filed a petition In Judge Troup's
court asking an order of court compelling
the city and the contractors on the sewer
proposition to appear and show cause why
a permanent Injunction should not Issue
to prevent them fulfilling the agreed con
tracts. This action Is similar to that which
so long delayed the work ou Missouri ave
nue. The reason a temporary restraining
ordt was not asked is thought to be the
fact that the plaintiff would In that case
have to furnish a heavy bond; but as it is
there is nothing but the court costs to be
guaranteed. This action will have the ef
fect ot delaying the contracts un:!l such
a time aa the court Is core l need of ire
legality of the present contracts. This
may be a tedious pre oas of litigation. The
city attorney postponed his visit to St.
Ixrnls yesterday and at once examined the
petition of the plaintiffs with a view of
filing a cross petition at the earliest pos
sible moment. There are many cltlsens ar
rayed on each i.lde of tha controversy and
the action Is !'. surprise. It Is looked on
by the other side as u positive "habit" on
the part of some citizens.
More Carriers Needed.
Postmaster F. J. Etter announces that
the Increase of the population of the city
has been so great and the consequent In
crease in the mails so heavy that he has
applied for three additional carriers for ths
city and an extra clerk for tha branch at
the South Omaha Livestock sxchangs
building. For several weeks the branch
at the exchange has been overcrowded and
sometimes the work has plied up. One
of the clerks from ths main office has
often been sent over to help relieve tha con
gestion. 'It has long been known that
the carrier service has been a little short.
Amending Inspection Regalntloas.
The Bureau of Animal Industry has re
ceived ammendatory regulations covering
tha meat Inspections, providing for tha ex
amination and relabeling of all meat food
products. It appear that- different labels
will havs to bs used for relabeling than
In the original labeling. Ths second amend
ment provides for the transportation of
meata which are exempt from Inspection
under the regulations, such as meats
slaughtered by local butchers and farmers.
This rule appllrs when the meat Is shipped
under the Interstate commerce regulations
or to a foreign market. . These amendments
provide that the shipper shall make out a
shipping certificate pronouncing the meat
to be sound, healthful and In all ways fit
for human food. A duplicate muat be sent
to the Department of Animal Industry at

"Th Count of Monte Crlsto" still ha
power to move th people. It Is a great
exhibition of the elemental passions, and
as fitted for the uses of the actor Is un
relieved by those occasional disquisitional
lapans by which Dumas sought to relieve
his hero of the charge of being of earth
earthy, and to secure for him some attri
butes of the higher and nobler man. In
the play he is simply the popular hero,
condemned unjustly to suffer for another's
sin, and through anotber'a ambition; liber
ated from living death and raised to a
height of power by strange mischance.
Returned to life and activity, even mor
popular than when he was suddenly torn
from th arms of bis brld and the society
of his friends, he Is all th mor enjoyable
because we know he la the Edmond Dantes
for whom we hav wept, oom back to
punish and reward. Danglars. masquerad
ing as the baron, doesn't know it, nor docs
Fernanda Mondego, who has hidden his
Catelonian extraction behind th title of
an ancient French house. Mercedes alone
of all that company knew It wonderful
Intuition of woman's . lova, and most ap
propriate climax to the action of the play.
At this point our feelings are atretched to
the point ot ultimate tension, and if It
wasn't for that last act to settle all aa It
should be there's no telling what might
happen. But th last act Is there, and wa
can go home, feeling that one again has,
right and true love triumphed.
Mr. O'Neill play Edmond Dantes with
the loving car that one bestows on a
precious treasure. He can fairly be seen
caressing th part as he develops him
through his various stages; the light
hearted honest manly sailor, the desperate
and discouraged prisoner, the pious and
philanthropic Abbe Busoni, and at last
Count De Monte Crlsto, sinister, polished,
relentless, bent on destroying those who
would destroy him. It Is quite as much
of a triumph In his hands today aa it waa
well, never mind how many year ago.
Tim la moving along for all of us, and a
man Is only as old aa he feels, and Judging
by Mr. O'Neill'a light rapera on the stage,
he Is Just past & or thereabouts.
Mr. O'Neill'a supporting company Is good,
and th production Is elaborate and com
plete. Th scenic effects are . remarkably
good, and the tableau that follow. Dantes'
escape from th Chateau A' If arouses stich
enthusiasm as to require the presenc be
fore th curtain of the hero, still- clad in
hla tatters and whiskers, and apparently
dripping from his submersion in th sea.
For that matter, the large audience at th
Boyd last night followed th fortune of
Edmond Dantes with such aealous Interest,
that, had it not been certain that he would
get away and return to avenge himself. It
la 'quit probable that Messieurs D Vllle
fort. Daitglara and Mondego would - hav
met with violence. However, th champion
of th hero were content to vent their feel
ing in applause, which they had ampl
opportunity for doing after th first act.
Th sadness that attended th carrying
away to prison of th newly mad Bene
dick and ship captain wa such aa to re
duce th expression of pleasure at th
excellent acting to a few very feeble and
sporaslo hamlpats. This wss not Indicative
of coldness on the part of th auditors, but
of their deep regret at th untoward occur
rence that marred the pleasant wedding
feast, just under way.
