The people of South Omaha are watting
with considerable Interest the outcome of

This trial concerns the purchase of Syndi

Una' aside the action of the council. It was
agreed by resolution at the last council
meeting that the city should employ special
counsel to conduct this case. It Is ex
pected that tha Arm of "Lambert & Win

this was not fully decided last night. It
la likely therefore that the council will
seek a continuance for the present. If the
contention that the pork already belongs
to South Omaha Is established by the plain
tiff, as he makes deposition. It is hard to
see just why the city attorney or the spe
cial counsel should take any great Interest
In the case. It would be a great saving to
the city to possess this park without cost

A Voice From
; the Stomach
A nioodlran Fight Between a Tablet
and a Habit The Tablet Wins.
At the Sgf of ,11,' Clarence had good
digestion. Hs had gastric Juice that could
dissolve doughnuts and turn apple-sklus
Into good blood corpuscles. .
At tha age of 24 he . began to be pro
fuse about the waist and lean backwards.
He also began to cultivate several chins.
In his new-found pride he began to think
tt his duty to gorge himself on every
thing, the good and the bad, for appe
tite feed on appetite and every good
thing Is abused.
' His picture showed that he took on
weight after he put his collar on.
, At the aga of !l Clarence married and
went to boarding. On top of all this,
he attended oyster suppers and wine din
ners, which reduced the else of his col
lar from 1H to IS. With still abiding
faith in the strength of his stomach he
gulped his meals, and chewed them after
ward!. i At the age of II Clarence began to hear
341 Inward voloa a warning from the
stomach. After each meal, he would fel
bloated and belching became a habit.
He began to be a light eater and a
heavy thinker. He tried to think out a
cure, for now he would sit down at his
meals absolutely disgusted at the thought
or sight of anything to .eat.
He would sit dowa at hla meals with
out the trace of an appetite, just because
It was time to eat.
He would often feel a gnawing, unaat
Isfled "still-hungry" feeling in his stom
ach, even 'after he was through eating,
whether his meal waa well cooked or not
And he suffered a good many pther
things with his stomach that he could
not explain, but that made him grouchy,
miserable, out-'o-sorts and generally sour
on everybody and everything.
Finally he read an account, something
like this about the truly wonderful re
sults obtained from . Stuarfs Dyspepsia
Tablets in all cases of stomach trouble,
dyspepsia, and so on. He bought a t"o
box at the drug store, and took the
whole box. When he started, he had
little faith and less appetite. When he
finished he had absolute faith and more
appetite, and more good cheer. Things
began to taste different and better to him.
Now be has no more dyspepsia, no
more indigestion, no more loss of appe

Worried Over Pavlna Case.
In the matter of the injunction brought
by Hugh Murphy It Is predicted that the
city will again be In a difficult position. He
seeks to restrain the city from Interfering
with him in the removal of paving mater
ial from Missouri avenue. When the case
shall be brought to trial. It Is said that the
loot estimate of the city engineer, amount
ing to 16.200, and which was allowed by the
city council, will be brought forward
proof that Mr. Murphy still lacks that
amount to reimburse hint for the work and
material expended in that street. The coun
cil revoked Its action In allowing this es
tlmate through fear of threatened Injunc
tion proceedings. Nevertheless It will be
made a pretty strone point In evidence. If
It Is entabltafted, then It will bo a hard mat
ter for the engineer to account to the city
for the estimates, the grand total of which
amount to $12,700. Only two blocks on one
side of the street car track is laid, and
the neceasary material still lacks consid
erably of a sufficient amount to complete

Chief Donahae Points Oat Necessity
"Teamsters, automobile drivers and others
must begin to learn the habits of the streets
as taught In the large cities," said Chief
of Police Donahue Thursday. "This town
la becoming too large and traffic on certain
thoroughfares too great to continue In
country-town ways. We have a good ordi
nance for the regulation or traffic, which
provides that all vehicles must pass on
the right side of the street in the direction
In which It Is moving. Drivers should In
turning corners stay as close to the curb
as possible, and not go out Into the middle
of the street before turning. And the habit
of driving back and forth diagonally across
any street must be stopped, or serious dis
aster will soon result."
Chief Donahue said he could use hslf a
dosen men on downtown crossings to
handle traffic only. Sixteenth street at
Howard, Harney, Farnam, Douglas and
Dodge streets, he said, should have a man
at each corner, but with the number of
officers he has now he can do nothing.
Drivers, towever, he says, may help avert
accidents by observing rules which main

by the city. The plana considered Thurs
day morning showed a 600-foot strip of
land extending around the north aide of the
lake, this strip comprising 23 acres. This
strip Includes thirty acres extending from.
the west end of the lake to Locust street.
It is proposed' to connect the park with a
thoroughfare from Sherman avenue, near
Ames. Besides the 223 acres mentioned, a
tract north of the lake and west of the
large Ice house across (rora the beach will
be acquired. Just how much land will be
acquired there will depend on circum
stances, but the Idea Is to have the park
open out at this point and afford space
for playgrounds pv even encampments.

The proposed first expenditure on this new
