APRIL SNOW IN EARLIER DAY
Colnmbne Joaraal Repeata Aeeomat of
Storm Which Ocenrred
la 18 TO.
That the snowstorm of Wednesday and
Thursday was not unprecedented Is shown
by the following report taken from the
files of the Columbus Journal of April 23,
173, and reprinted In the current Issue: '
"No human being perished In Platte
county during the fearful storm of last
week, but. according to very fair estimates,
about l.ono head of cattle, besides a few
horses, rmtlear- sheep, hogs, chickens, etc.,
succumbed. A great many cattle are owned
In this county, and for that reason our
comparative lose may arpenr great, but
the ratio of losses, compared with the
amount of stock, will not be found greater
than in other sections of the state. We
have tried to gather some accurate ac
count of losses In this county, which we
give below: Henry Carrlg, on Bhell cre;k,
lost thirty-five hend; some of them had
followed the storm and were found In the
Loup river. John Macken, who recently
moved fr"m the vklnlty of Columbue to
Bhell creek, lost about 11,100 worth of
horses, mule, cattle, etc. Patrick Murray,
near Columbus, lost a few hogs, but none
of hla large herd of cattle; he has a large
close barn, Into which he put all his cnttlc
and kept them there during the entire
storm, though without anything to eat or
drink, they were so thickly crowded. M.
Maher of Shell creek, we learn, lost about
$1,000 worth of property, among others three
good horse. Mr. Morlarty lost considerable
stork we didn't learn the number. J. B.
Henecal lost some eight or nine head;
twenty-six of his went with the storm,
crossed the Loup, arrived at Guy C. Bar
r.um'i and were very properly cared for
and well fed by that genial, good Pamari
tan. Mr. Senecal has an enclosure sur
rounded by a ditch, where he kepe his
stork, but the snow filled the ditch and
some, of the cattle followed the storm.
Oeorge Barnum lost about twenty head. In
cluding calves; -i Hays, thirty-nine;
Fred Gnttschalk, eight; Jacob Krnst, flv.
E. A. Gerrard A Co. didn't Ipse a hoof.
Their cattle wore In en opon corral at
their stock yards west of Columbus, and'
when the snow drifted to the height of
the fence on the south side they erected a
temporary fence and kept the stock within
the enclosure; being cornfed, they wlth
etood the exposure without much loss of
kflcsh. Guy C. Barnum, sr., lost none. We
have not heard whether his cattle were un
der the shelter of his close shed or not,
but suppoeo they must have been, as they
were In such position that they could not
feed during the storm. Frans Menggeler
lost none by the storm. Or.e of his cattle
was pushed Into the creek near which his
enclosure waa, but otherwise there was no
loss. We see by the above that those who
made a business of stock raising and who
were our heaviest owners and dealers lost,
some of them, comparatively very few, and
Henggeler, Burnum. Gerrard and Murray
none at all. Thl was owing to their prep
aration and to the manner In which their
dock was fed during the winter. Nobody
was expecting such a storm this time of
year, and so manywho would have been
safe In March were found without protec
tion tor this terrific storm of April 14, IS

Acting upon the quiet advice of the po
lice,' the women who have been arrested on
charges of running houses of disorder In
the residence districts of the city, or out
side the limits accepted as the proscribed
lines, began Friday morning to plead
guilty before Judge Crawford In police
court, the first to take thle action being
Vesta Bushnell, Eleventh and Douglas
streets, on the same block with the police
station. Mrs. Bushnsll was ftjied 1C4 ad
costs, which Is one-half the amount Im
posed upon thoee who stood trial and after
ward appealed their cases. It Is under
stood the women have come to the con
elusion that attorneys have been extending
false hopea In order to represent them in
court at hearings, and will dispense with
the expensive luxuries and -plead guilty.
Instead of taking up most bf tha forenoon,
therefore, aa the other caaee iH, the Bush
nell woman's case was disposed of In one
minute and the defendant saved herself
If the others arrested follow the lead
taken, which, la stated they have de
cided to do, the other caaee etlll to be
tried, numbering about eighteen, will be
disposed of within day or two.

Defense of Pure Food Law.'
BLAIR, Neb., April 18. To the Editor of
The Bee: We think It possible that I. H.
M., in his article In your Issue of the 16th
InHtant, entitled "Maple Syrup and Pessi
mism," may be looking on one side only of
the matters of which he writes, or perhaps
riding on the "Overland Limited" made
him dlxy-headed, for he speaks very posi
tively concerning matters that experience
proves the contrary to be true. It must
be taken as a truth that we as Individuals,
as a state or aa a nation have not reached
the limit of progress, but that there la art
abundance to learn and put Into practice
that haa not yet come t light. His argu
ment would not only deny advance, but
cast doubt on weil known and practiced
oustoms of years. It Is a fact, whloh
every practical man knows, that In the
preserving of fruita and vegetables In her
metlcally sealed cans there Is not the
slightest need for using any preservative
In the way of an added Ingredient. No
one engaged in the business would think
of using a chemical preservative, and wel
comes with heartiness the law that vigor
ously punishes such a dishonest and evil
practice. "yrup" of any kind can be
made and kept pure and eweet without the
use of chemical or blend. The law says
that "It is wrong to use chemical preserva
tives; they are Injurious." It Is not neces
Bary to prove Just how Injurious, but they
are so, and hence wrong to use them. The
law mentions the lngrejlenta which It Is
wrong to use. Now, docs one sit down and
declare that his business Is ruined, or seek
a new and better way? New methods axe
sought and found that eliminate the ob
jectionable. Adulterations and blends are
a thing of the past, except where the facts
are made known and the public apprlsud of
what they are using. Are these things
something to grieve and "kick" about? Is
It not an advance to learn new and better
methods? Dr. H. W. Wiley, chief of the
bureau of chemistry St Washington, says:
"We are going to have not only plenty to
eat, but better to eat, ten years from now
than we have today, and the manufac
turer that would ask to go back to the old
preservatives would be hissed." Who
knows but what all of the "water" can be
squeesed out of the railroad stocks with
profit and advantage to the general public?
The "square deal" hits only the pessimist
and obstructionist, but encourages the opti
mist and progressive. Give us more of It,
more going forward, learning and adopting
new and better methods and discarding the
old and doubtful. Laws are made to cor.
rect and not to punish. - We are coming
to the new and correct way "by experiment
and reason and not by dogmatism."

Shipping Llqoor ta Nebraska.
DRTVILLB, Neb., April U.-To the
Editor of The Bee: Wtll you publish In
your next Issue of The Bee If It Is un
lawful for an Individual to ship liquor Into
a dry town for hla own use; alao whether
it was, prior to the passing of the late law.
Thanking you .for the courtesy of an
answer, I am, A SUBSCRIBER.
Answer As we understand it. It Is not
unlawful in Nebraska for an individual to
ship liquor Into a dry town for bis own
consumption. Several new laws, effective
next July, however, will regulate these
shipments. 'After that date the receptaole
and outer package must both be labeled
legibly "Intoxicating Uquora," and It will
be unlawful to have the package sent into
a dry town C. O. D. What the law pro
hibits la tha sale of liquor anywhere In
Nebraska -without a license, and In dry
towns, no liquor can be legally sold be
cause no licenses sre Issued.

Nebraska Dairy Interests Brlnsj Knor
mou Retarna to Those M ho
Dairying In Nebraska la fully set forth
In a circular just published by the pas
senger department of the Union Pacific,
giving lta special advantages and produc
tion at a minimum cost, the market de
mands and the profUaBle prices. The
dairy products of the United States amount
to more than any single crap, except corn
and are I1W.C30.000 ahead of the entire
national wheat crop. It Is a sure crop in
dustry and one which adds to the soli
fertility. It is one of the most economical
ways of condensing the raw products of the
interior into a commodity, which may be
exported to all parts of the world. It In
creases the prlae of land and makes possi
ble the profitable farming of very high
priced land. The pamphlet adds:
The success of an Industry in any coun
try depends first on the economic produc
tion of the raw material, and second on
the getting of thla produce to market.
The proof aa to whether or not the In
dustry Is succeeding may be found by com
paring the growth of thla Industry from
year to year. What. then, can we say of
the dairy bustness of Nebraska and what
does It offert
In the first place, the cost of butter pro
duction Is determined by the cost of rood
for cattle, and this In Nebraaka la aa cheap
or cheaper than In any state of the Union.
Oraa, such aa alfalfa, clover, millet,
timothy, oowpeas and prairie grasses thrive
In the state and can be purchased at a
lower price than In any other state. Corn,
sorfrhum and the grains reach their highest
perfection, while augar beeta, mangels and
similar roots do wall and produce Immense
cropa. Corn, one of the most Important
planta Known for feeding cattle, la In Ne
braska at lta perfection and can be grown
or purchased to batter advantage than In
an7 market east or west. The crop may
be turned into allege or fed aa fodder or
stover. The grain makes a perfect balance
for alfalfa, and when so fed Is especially
lnduclve to milk flow. In plain words. It
costs less to foad dairy rows In Nebraaka
than In any other state of the union.
The growth of the tialry Industry in Ne
braska during tha last ten yeare haa been
very marked, and the state has gone from
twentieth place In the union to ninth, as
based on ths amount of butter produced.

Uric acid is a deadly poison that Is
produced in the human body, and it Is
the duty of the kidneys to collect this
poison from the blood, and to pass It
safely out of the system, together with
all waste water.
It Is the presence in the body of an
excess of uric acid that causes so much
l.uiu and suffering, and so msny of the
aches that are commonly attributed
The kidneys are bean-shaped organs,
composed of masses of little tubes, all
of which pour their secretions Into a
main channel that leads to the bladder.
In this way the kidneys pass off more
than an ounce of poison every day
when in health.
But it does not take much to set
the kidneys back, and when they get
behind, they cannot right themselves
without hely. The uric acid begins to
clog the kidneys, causing that dull,
heavy aching In the back, and sharp
twinges when stooping or lifting. It
cryetaliies in th rnac!e end Joints,
and every turn or twist brings keenest
torture. It attacks the nerves with
neuralgia and sciatica. It brings bead

cost us 30 extra, but we have advertised
we will have the band and we are going
to have it. I know Mr. Mohler would

Ths petition upon which was based the)
restraining order iasued by Judge Button
Thursday night to prevent the election f

Mrs. Wm. H. Malken, of tit N. 16th
St., Omaha, Neb., says: "Mr. Malken
values Doan's Kidney Pills as highly
today as when he gave statement
vouching for their merits several years
ago. For twelve years he was afflicted
with kidney complaint and even
though he took lots of medicine, he
