UTICA, Neb,, March . (Special.) Be
cause Rev. F. A. Miller of Lincoln, who
la holding revival meetings here, said In a
sermon to the women last Friday afternoon,
that those who belonged to the "Kensington
club" were member of an Indecent or
ganization, he took a terrible whipping on
the main street of the town at noon today,
E. L. Hurburt. a grain buyer, administering
the first blow, after which more than a
dozen took a hand In beating the minister.
Miller ha beerl holding meeting at th
Presbyterian church. Several of the meet
ings have been for women only. He Is said
to have Insulted the women a number of
times by Insinuating that they were com
pletely wrong and grossly negligent In their
church and social life. Friday afternoon,
after his meeting for "women only," the
town was agog with the talk of the Insult
t the Kensington club, an organization
which has for Its member the best women
of the village. Men and boy attempted to
give the evangelist a shower of eggs which
had seen better day Friday evening, but he
waa escorted to the home of Rev. F. W.
liorlmer, pastor of the church, by those who
sympathised with the evangelist and minis
ter. It was given out that Rev. Mr. Miller
would preach a public apology to the women
Sunday and retract his remarks about the
Kensington club.
In the hope of hearing the apology, ' a
large number attended the meetings Sun
day who had not been attracted to th
church before. ' But here wa no apology,
either from the evangelist or the pastor of
the church. Talk of the- Insult was still
heated Monday and the men were Incensed
by the failure of the minister to make good
and apologize from his pulpit.
It wa shortly before noon when the
minister walked unattended down the main
street of Utica. Mr. Hulburt started to
ward the evangelist followed by a score.
So closely did the men crowd about Rey.
Mr. Miller that It waa difficult to tell who
struck the first blow. The minister was
badly , beaten, a number taking advantage
of the opportunity to strike him, artfl he
waa battered about from one side of the
ring to another
After the assault tha minister of the
town held a meeting. It is "said warrants
will be Issued Tuesday for the arrest of
three of the leading business men of the
city, Including Hulburt, charging them with

have followed 'the erie of ketche
appearing In thla paper for the paat few
weeka, you have learned a few of these
reason. But there ar many attractive
features about thl moat complete of ho
tels which cannot be conveyed to the
mind by fine phraae or by th multipli
cation of adjectlvea. To fully appreciate
the transcendent comforts and beauties
of Hotel St. Regis, one must personally
enjoy them.
Perhapa you have had it in mind to
do thl but have been deterred becau
of false Impression gained from read
ing certain sensational stories about the
cost of living at the at. Regis. These
reports, redlculoua a they wer mis
leading, have doubtle kept many per
son for making the St. Regl tbelr
home when In New York, and thereby
robbed them of a vaat amount of com
fort and pleasure.
Many of th limited number who
once gave credence to these sensational
reports have long since proven their
falsity by actual experience hav
found, aa you will find, that at th
St. Regl on get more for hi money
than anywhere else in the world, and
that considering the excellence of serv
ice and accomodation. neither res

Six days of good temper in every
box of Cascarets. Six days when
you feel at your best; no head
ache, no dullness. Are they worth
ten cents?
It ia (oily to talk of the "laxative habit"
The habit lies in eating the wrong sort of food, and too much
of it. And in getting too little exerciae.
While you do that, you must give the necessary help to th
bowels in some other way.
Else there is always a penalty.
Here is the way to avoid it:
Est coarae food in moderation. Est plenty of fruit, many green
vegetables. Drink no alcohol. Wslk ten miles per day.
Those are Nature's ways (or keeping the bowels active.
The next best way is Cascarets.
Cascarets, better than anything else, supply the place of laxa
tive foods and of exerciae.
They do whst right living would do. And they do it just as
gently, just as naturally. They are vegetable.
You'll need them just as long as you live in-doors, and eat rich
foods; and no longer.'
Take them as you take food when you need it Carry a box
in your pocket and take one Cascaret at a time. That's better thsn
to suffer aand wsit
