LINCOLK, Feb. . (Bpeclai.) Governor
-fheldon hu refuelled the attorney general
to file a ault to tee whether he la violating
the constitution by living In the executive
fnaneloa without paying rent to the state.
nd Mr. Thompson filed the petition this
afternoon in the supreme court, lie asks
Judgment against the governor for $1A
Which Is considered reasonable rent for
such a home for one month. Qovernor
Sheldon ' deles to know whether he vio
lates the constitution, which provides no
perquisite aside from the salary attached
to 'the office shall be extended to an office
bolder, and this la the first time on record
av state officer ever objected to anything
the state allowed him. Following Is the
letter sent to the attorney general by Gov
ernor Sheldon requesting suit be filed, to
gether with the petition filed by tbe at
Hon. W. T. Thompson, Attorney Gen
eral.' Lincoln, Neb. Dear Bir: The1 leg
islature., of 189, probably realizing that
the salary for the governor of this state
did not properly compensate him for the
nervines performed, passed an act which
provided that the Board of IMbllc Lands
and Buildings should purchase a dwelling
bonne property for an executive mansion
to be occupied by- the governor. Section
of that act says! '
"After said property has been purchased
Bmd paid for the Board of Public, Lands
and Buildings shall furnish said premises
Suitable for an executive mansion and
the sume shall be occupied by the gov
Bud-ceding legislatures have made ap
propriations for the furnishing and main
tenance of the executive mansion.
Section 24, article v., of the constitu
tion of the state Is as follows:
"The salaries of the governor, auditor
tf public accounts and treasurer shall be
$2,500 each per annum, and of the sec
retary of state, attorney general, super
intendent of public. Instruction and com
missioner of publlo lands and buildings
hall be $2,000 each per annum. The
lieutenant governor shall receive twice
the compensation of a senator, and after
the adoption ft this constitution they
a hall not receive to thoir own use any
fees, costs, Interest upon publlo moneys
In their hands or under their control,
perquisites of office or other compensa
tion, and all fees that may hereafter be
payable by law fpr services performed
ty an officer, provided for In this article
of the constitution, shall be paid In ad
vance Into the state treasury. There
fhall be no allowance for clerk hire In
he offices of the superintendent ef pub
lic Instruction and attornev aeneral."
It seems to me that the act of the
legislature referred to above and the
Succeeding ones Is In violation of this
section of the constitution. You are.
therefore, directed to adopt such pro
cedure as you may determine necessity
to properly test the validity of the act
hlch requires the governor to live In
the executive mansion, even though you
' may find It necessary to sue me for the
tiae and the occupancy of the executive
mansion, and also to determine whether
or not the legislature has the right to
appropriate money, as has been done by
each legislature since this act was passed,
to- provide for the maintenance of the
, mansion, very respectfully.

Doctor Caa Offer Nn Explanation at
the Fatal Illness.
NORFOLK. Neb.. Feb. 8. (8peclal.)-Two
little children In the home of Mrs. August j
Haase, whose husband, waa killed two
'months ago in front of a nortnuouna
Bonesteel psssenger train near his farm,
died suddenly yesterday afternoon within
five hours of each other. Each died in
convulsions. The dead are:
BABY MAX. aged 8 months, who died
at 1 o'clock. . .
LITTLE EMMA HAASE. aged x years.
who died at o'clock.
Dr. Tashjean, who was summoned after
the baby's death, says that he can at
tribute no cause to the convulsions which
resulted In the death of little Emma, who
had been In good health. The Infant, born
but a month before his mother was
stricken with the grief of her husband's
accidental death, had never been well.
Mrs. Haase can only account for the death
of the. little girl through the theory that
the child, excited by the grief of the
mother, began crying, went into hysteria
snd then convulsions that resulted fatally.
Although Dr. Tashjean was summoned
shortly after the baby's death and did
everything possible for the little girl, he
was unable to save the second child a
The family ate beans for dinner, as did
little Emma, but no one else was sick.
This, Dr. Tashjean thinks, does away with
the thought of ptomaine, poisoning.

A SCHOOL TEACHER '
Tnnant Good Food Lesson.
It Is a strain on nerves and patience
for a teacher, not only to curb the antics
of forty or fifty youngsters six to eight
hours each day, but also to instill Into
their minds a mass of knowledge. Includ
ing the famous three R.'s.
A teacher, living In Taunton, England,
writes of the benefit she derived from
Grape-Nuts food after the exhausting
work in the schoolroom had almost ruined
her health. Bhe says:
"When I first began taking Orape-Nuts
food, I was a teacher worn out In body
and mind, and used to suffer very much
from brain fag.
"I was also a martyr to indigestion.
"It Is now plain that I lacked the power
to digest and get value from my fojd.
"I felt much better after the first pack
age, and by tbe time I had eaten three or
four packagea I waa a new creature.
"My brain became clearer, and tha pow
ers of concentration much greater. I
gained steadily In weight, my flesh be
coming hard and firm. The sense of con-
I tlnual weariness vanished Ilka magic, and
I have not had a bad attack of Indiges
tion since I first used Grape-Nuts.
