I lost many a friend In Clay county on
oonunt of advocating Governor Sheldon's
nomination. I was never satisfied with
the deal I got In the state convention last
year, but have alwaya felt that 1 waa
sacrificed to make way for others. I ran
for railway commissioner thla year to see
whether a man who stood uncompromis

support of the people. You can see. that
I am more than satisfied with their verdict.
My campaign waa made on the Issue

Senator Aldrlch, who framed tha com

the action of Judge Munger and ha also
failed to see upon what grounds an Injunc

several names are omitted and that this
road has also failed to file a rate showing
the IS per cent reduction on certain com
modities. The commission and the attorney
general are not Just sure whether a com
plaint against Mr. Holdrege will stick. The
commission law provides that the books of
the railroad company shall ba -open to In

now of the opinion that probably the of

the law. However, the matter Is still un

REPUBLICAN CITY,' Neb 'sept. 12.
(Speclal.) Yesterday, as the Burlington,
section gang was returning from Its day's
labor, the handcar wa sthrown violently
irom ine traca and upon Investigation It
was found that the rails had been tam
pered with. A little distance from where
the handcar was derailed they found pieces
of Iron and two-by-fours pounded down
against the rails, which would have
wrecked an engine had one come along be
fore It was discovered.
The men suspected two boys about 12 or
14 years old, who had passed them. The
section boss wired to Woodruff for the ar
rest of these boys, which waa done, and
they were brought here, where they said
they put quite a lot of trash on the rails,
but didn't suppose It would da any harm.
It was done In fun. The boys said they
came from Port . Collins, Colo,, and were
on tholr way to Norton, Kan. They re
fused to give their names. After promising
never to bother a railroad track again they
were freed.

The robber escaped from Manley on horse

the Manley bank is headed toward Omaha

NORTH PLATTE, Neb., Bept, 11 (Spe
cial.) It has now been definitely ascer
tained that the "E. W." ranch, consisting
of 7,000 acres, was not purchased by the
Burlington railroad at all. Instead the
Lincoln Development company, a new cor
poration Just organised, paid James W.
Payne 1126,000 for the tract. Mr. Payne has
Just sold practically all of his personal
property also to this new corporation. In
cluded In the personal property Is 967 cattle,
twelve horses and all farm machinery on
the ranch, and the consideration paid for
this property was between $.10,000 and HO.
000. Rumor Is that the division terminal and
shops of the Burlington when constructed
will be located at the proposed town of
Blgnell, about twelve miles east of Jehls
city, on the tract purchased by this cor
poration. It Is said the Burlington officials
feel very unkindly toward North Platte by
reason of the litigation over the Dillon
land, 10 acres of which the Burlington
thought they had purchased. It waa In
tended to use this 106 acres for tracks,
shops and other necessaries for a division
terminal. Borne of the Burlington officials
have announced that they hold North
Platte responsible for this litigation. The
suit Is brought, however, by Roy B. Tabor,
as trustee In bankruptcy, to recover the
land, sell ths same and use the proceeds
to satisfy the claims died against the bank
rupt's estate. Mr. Tabor lives In Chicago,
as also did George W. Stewart, who owned
the land at the time the adjudication In
bankruptcy was had against him. The best
posted people In this neighborhood are un
willing to believe that the Burlington will
treat North Platte In this fashion, because
North Platte Is the largest and most pros
perous city in the western half of Nebraska
and has a population now of about 6,000.

Scavenger Law la Gage County.
' BEATRICE, Neb., Sept. 12,-lSpecIal.)
County Treasurer Barnard haa furnished
some figures which show that the total
amount of taxes collected under the scav
enger sales was approximately $79,600. Of
this sum the city of Beatrice received
$36,SU0 and Beatrice school district $17,400.
Wymore city received $2,700 and the school
district of that place $2,000. The city of
Blue Springs was benefited to the amount
of $900 and the school district $700. From
this It appears that about $00,500 of the
total amount of $79,600 went to the three
largest towns In the county. The re
mainder of about $18,000 was collected from
the various villages and school districts
that had the delinquent habit, but not In
so advanced a stage. About 2,600 tracts
of land were sold In all, not Including those
which were bid In by the several ctles
and villages. Treasurer Barnard states
that the bringing In of considerable sums
of money was not the only benefit derived
from the scavenger tax sales. A large
amount c" property was put on a tax
paying basis which would still have been
on the delinquent list. A large amount of

"No seat, no fare," -may soon be the
slogan of the Nebraska traveling men, who
are now fighting with the Union Pacific
for the privilege of riding on the com
pany's fast trains. At a meeting of the
state' post of the Travelers' Protective as
sociation a day or two ago, this subject
was discussed and the opinion was ex
pressed that the association ought to find
some means of compelling the railroads
to furnish seats for the passengers. It
was suggested that some suffering travel
ing salesman be selected to sue a railroad
for the return of his fare for failure to
provide him a seat.
There has always been more or less com
plaint In ths matter, but It was brought
before the association because several
salesmen were compelled to stand In the
aisles of a Northwestern train all the way
from Norfolk to Omaha last week.

Start the Day Right.
Breakfast Is perhaps the most Important
raeal of the day. Europeans usually eat a
very light breakfast.
Many Americans have stomach trouble
because they eat too much or food of not
the right sort for the morning meal. An
Ideal breakfast Is a baked apple or some
other fruit, a dish of Grape-Nuts food with
little cream, soft boiled egg, slice of hard
crisp toast and a cup of Postum Food
Leave off all meat, hot biscuits, etc.
Grape-Nuts and Postum both furnish the
phosphate of potash together with other
food elements that go to make up brain and
nerve centers as well as muscle and tissue,
and both can be digested by the stomach
of an infant.
It is the part of wisdom nowadays to use
food especially selected for nourishment
fcnd that can be easily digested. Ten day's
trial of this breakfast and you will feel as
though you had "cleaned bouse."
The exhilaration of bounding health Is
worth a hundred times the small outlay of
time and care In arranging such a break
fast. A New Jersey woman says she formerly
breakfasted on chops, hot biscuits and
coffee. "After such a meal I would havs
severs pains and they would last sometimes
far Into the night." She finally deter
mined on a change In her diet, and had for
breakfast only Grape-Nuts food . with
cream, and Postum Food Coffee. She says:
In a very few days the intestinal trouble
all disappeared. I have regained my old
time weight, lost the irritability and ner
vousness, and life takes on a nsw aspect.
When I feel a little exhausted In ths
day I simply drop every tiling and stir a
spoonful of Grape-Nuts In a little cream or
bot milk, and In ten minutes I have re
gained my vigor and freahness."
Orape-Nuta food is best when served Just
as It comes from tha package without any
cooking whatever. Tha food has already
been cooked ten or twelve hours In ths
process of manufacturing It. When made
up Into puddings, plea and other desserts It
does not hurt It to be cooksd again, but
when served simply as a breakfast food It
should never be cooked. On the contrary,
Postum absolutely must be boiled fifteen
to twenty minutes before ths food value
and flavor can be brought out. "Tiere'j a

Tbat Paid ta Chicago or Mll
waakee for Thla Klad
of Grata.
That the Gate City Malt company will
eventually make Omaha a big barley mar
ket la the belief of members of the Omaha
Grain exchange.
President E. E. Bryson Is on the floor
of the exchange every morning at the j
cash trading hour, snapping up every car j
of barley offered. He Is searching the
Omaha elevators for old barley. He Is
wiling and writing to points In all parts
of Nebraska and western Iowa. He has
Instructed elevator managers at a number
of stations In southeastern South Dakota
to send him all the first-class barley they
can get.
The company, with a capacity of 1.000
bushels a day at Its South Omaha plant
and 500 bushels a day at Its old malting
house at Second and Pine streets, Omaha,
can use more barley than Is raised at pres
ent in the entire state of Nebraska. It Is
estimated that 1GO.0T0 bushels of the grain
were used In Nebraska In 1306 and the
records of the labor bureau show that
322,000 bushels were shipped out. The
malting plant will use SOO.000 bushels In
the next twelvemonth if It can get the
grain. As the yield this season Is sup
posed to be not any larger than this, and
as some of It Is not fit for malt, Mr.
Bryson has to search outsldo the state.
Price Better Than Other Towns.
The price of barley on the local ex
change has been running from 78 to 86
cents for the malting gTades, which Is a
little better than the Chicago and Mil
waukee prices when the freight Is added.
The new demand for the grain and the
good price that must be paid In competi
tion with Milwaukee will undoubtedly
make Omaha known as a market for
barley as well as for wheat, corn and oats.
Once the barley gets to coming In quan
tities, more malting plants will be erected,
say the local grain dealers, for there Is a
fine field for trade In the Missouri valley
and the Rocky mountains, and the Gate
City company may have more orders than
It can fill. Only 1R7.000 bushels of barley
passed through the Omaha Grain ex
change . last year. Receipts are expected
to reach GAO.flno In a year or two and
1,000,000 In three or four years.
"It pays to raise barley," says E. E.
Bryson. "It Is worth more today, pound
for pound, than any other grain, and you
can raise more of it to the acre than
