The stomach I a strong, powerful or-
'Ban, which in composed of muscles of
Treat strength. It Is filled during; diges
tion with gastric juices which, when the
stomach, extending and compressing the
food, dissolve It and separate the nour
lshmont from tlio wa.ute matter. If, how
ever, these gastric Juices are lacking, the
rtomach Is not capable of digesting Us
lood because it has not the tools with
j Which to work successfully.
The gastric Juices when In a perfect
state do away with nil foul odors, fer
mentation and decay, reduce the food to
a disintegrated mass and the stomach
then presses It Into the Intestines where
another form of digestion- takes place.
Then the Intestines take from this mass
food all that Is nourishing and give It I
the blood. The waste matter It throws i
from the system. .
If Instead of nourishment the Intestines
receive Impure deposits combined with a
poisonous and Imperfect gastric Juice, It
can bo readily sen that they must turn
such ImperfVft. nourishment Into the blood.
I The blood then being unable to give each
part of the body that whloh It requires, be
comes Impoverished and disease Is spread
. broadcast. '
I Stuart Dyspepsia Tablets corrects
uch a condition at once. If the gastric
Juices are lucking and Imperfect these
tablets do their work Just the same. They
build up the elements In the Juice which
are lacking and remove those elements
which cause disturbance.
Meat, grains, fluids, vegetables and
delicacies, Ju fact each portion of a
large meal have been placed in a glass
vial and Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have
digested them to a perfect fluid Just as
a healthy stomach-would do.
A large complex, hearty meal holds no
terrors for a dyspepetln if Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tabids are used. Abnormal eat

COURT ORDER BARS BOARD
Temporary Injunction Secured by
KEEPS MEMBERS OUT OF OIFICE
llrpreseatatlves of Water Board Go
to CUT Hall an AdrUe PnbUe
Officials of the Omaha Water board were
barred out of the office of the Omaha
Water company Tuesday morning by
a restraining order Issued late Monday
afternoon by Judge W. H. Munger In the
United States circuit court and the coup
planned by the board against the company
thereby went by default.
Tht board Sr.turday evening decided to
niara a representative In the office of the
water company In the Bee building and
another In tne office of the board in the
cMy h.'i'l for the purpose or explaining iu
consumers the basis of the new schedule
of rates adopted a couple of months ago
and ordered to go Into effect January 1,
19fi9. The consent of the company was not
asked or secured and when the action of
the board became known the company of
ficials, together with their attorneys, hold
a conference which resulted In the peti
tion In federal court for a restraining order
against the board or the officials of the
city from interfering with the business of
Order Secnred Quietly.
The restraining order, was secured late In
the afternoon and members of the board
knew nothing of It until Secretary Koentg
of that body presented himself at the office
of the company In conformity with the
board's orders to advise people not to pay
the old raio. No time was lost In explain
ing to the awtietsry that he was enjoined
from Interfering, and that official then
gathered up his books and adjourned to
the city hall where he, O. E. Bertrana
attorney, and a stenographer held forth
during the day, attending to a long line of
seekers after information.
The restraining order has nothing to do
with the actions of members or employes
of the Water board from doing what they
please In their office In the city hall. It
merely refuses them admittance to ' the
company's private offices.
Callers at the eTflce of the board were
told not to pay the present' rate, but the
refusal of the company to accept the lower
rate) on pain of having the water turned
off resulted In all paying the present
schedule. On the bills of those who paid
under protest, however, the clerks In the
office stamped across the face of the re
ceipts this statement: "Upon presentation
hereof, we will refund the amount paid
hereon In excess of rates specified In order
of the Omaha Water board of October 24,
190. provided such order be finally held

Most of the wheat did not leave Omaha
until Tuesday, and the result of the tests
will not be known for ten days at least.
Those Interested In the wheat awards will
have the consolation of knowing that the
ubject of their fairness will not be open
to discussion. Tho samples have not only
been Judged by tho best grain Inspectors of
the country, but a part of each sample
has been milled, and another part of each
will be given the laboratory test.
This Is the first wheat competition ever
held when the grains were so thoroughly
tested, but the National Corn exposition
early decided to give the wheat the most
careful consideration, as grain Inspectors
have for years been grading some varie
ties of wheat so that It brought a lower
price than others, when tne expert growers
have been of the opinion that If the wheat
was fairly tested It would be shown to be
as good as any variety on the market

C. & S. DEAL PART OF BIG PLAN
Give Hill and Harriman All North
and South Lines.
FEEDERS FOR THE GREAT TRJNKS
One by One These Roads Art An
nesed as Oatlets to the Walt
for the Transeoatlaental
The announcement of the acquisition of
the Colorado & Southern by the Burling
ton brings up the fact that all the north
and south lines, which for years were
thorns In the sides of the owners of the
great transcontinental lines, are being gob
bled up and absorbed by these giant eoit
and west roads.
One by one these north and south lines
which were looked upon as the great bene
factors of the middle west country ' In
that they would give an outlet for tho
products of the valley states to the Oulf,
have been made parts of one or the other
of the cross-country roads. Tho Port Ar
thur St Oulf was first absorbed by Harri
man and then practically dismantled as
far as the Omaha end was concerned; then
the 'Frisco was absorbed by the Rock Isl
and, the Illinois Central was secured by
Harriman and now Hill takes over the
Colorado A Southern.
With the completion of Hill's second line
across Wyoming, which Is to be one of
the first large undertakings ot the spring,
Hill will have a direct connection be
tween the Great Northern and the North
ern Pacific and the southern states and
the Oulf. When Hill first built the Great
Northern the tonnage was greater from
the west than to the west and to increase
this westbound tonnage and also to provldo
cargoes for his boats. Hill had agents
working through the south to Induce the
cotton producers to ship their cotlon to tho
Pacific northwest for the China trade and
thus the Great Northern got the long end
of the tonnage. This new through line from
the southern states to the Great Northern
will. It Is claimed give Mr. Hill this ori
ental trade on cotton all the way from
the south to Seattle.
Pacific Coast Lines Fall.
Slnoe the legislative enactment that pre
vents Hill or Harriman absorbing land
freight rates it has been seriously as
serted that oriental commerce on the Pa
cific will not become lucrative to Amor
lean lines, not until conditions are rad
Ically changed. Hill today Is operating Just
one steamship and Harriman three, and all
at a loss.. The reason given Is that they
cannot compete with the Suez lines. The
latter load their cargoes on tho Atlantic
seaboard and start for the orient with only
a water charge, to their shippers, while the
patrons of the Pacific coast lines must pay
for land transportation from the point of
shipment In the south or east to the Pa
cific coast and then pay water trans
portation. Only by absorbing- this land rate,
It Is argued, can the Pacific magnates hope
for success, and until congress takes some
different view of the matter, . they cannot
absorb the rate.
The Colorado & Southern also will give
Mr. Hill an almost exclusive hold on cer
tain cattle business which ' amounts to
thousands of cars annually. "Every spring
Texas ships to the ranges of Wyoming and
Montana a good many, thousand cars of
cattle, which are fattened on the ranges
and then shipped ' to the Missouri river
markets or Chicago. On this business Mr.
Hill will get the business going and com
ing, the Colorado ft Southern handling the
cattle from the south to the' north and the
Turlington bringing' the4 fattened cattle to
market. " v"
What fltlllwell' told'.
When In the early '90s StlUwelJ started
to build the Kansas City, Pittsburg ft Gulf
railroad from Omaha to Port Arthur tho
people of Omaha and Kansas City thought
they saw in that line a proposition which
would force a reduction to the east and
west rates by competition because the gulf
is much nearer to Omaha than either the
Atlantic or Pacific seaboards. Things did
not run smooth for Mr. Stilwell and he soon
lost control of that road and Mr. Harri
man gobbled up sufficient of the stock that
he was able practically to dismantle the
line between Omaha and Kansas City. The
Qulncy, Omaha ft Kansas City, which was
part of that scheme, Is now under the con
trol of the Burlington and Is operated as
an independent line. The Omaha ft St
Louis line, which -was another part of the
scheme. Is now a part of the Wabash be
tween Omaha and St. Louis. The Port
Arthur line Is now owned by the Dutch syn
dicate and is quite a lumber and oil line,
passing through the Beaumont oil fields
and running between Kansas City and
The 'Frisco was another line which was
making Inroads on the business of the
transcontinental and it was bought up by
the Rock Island system.
Rumors are always flying around that
this road or the other has absorbed the
Katy line, but these all turned out wrong
and the Katy Is still independent, although
It is believed to be on the market Large
sums are spent annually In Improving It,
the territory through which it passes 1
constantly developing and the capitalists
who now want to buy will have to pay a
much larger price than several years ago,
Valuable Traekaa-e Contracts.
The Katy has valuable trackage contracts
with the Burlington and enjoys unlimited
privileges between St. Louis and the coun
try north as far as Alton, with trackage
across tho Mississippi at Alton. It connects
with the Burlington at Hannibal and at
Kansas City with alL.the roads. It then
runs through the biggest towns of Okla
homa and Texas and Its 3,072 miles has an
outlet at the gulf at Galveston. It is now
thought that Rockefeller has a controllln
Interest In the road. Persistent rumors
have floated around during tho last twenty
years at different times that Hill had
bought the Katy, but these have all been
denied and now that Mr. Hill has bought
the Colorado & S uthern these rumors prob
ably will be set at rest - .
The Mobile & Ohio, a north and south
line running between St. Louis and Mobile,
a distance of 648 miles with branches mak
ing a total of 1.000 miles, was absorbed by
the Southern railway in 1900. The Southern
Is dominated by J. Plerpont Morgan. The
Southern runs from Norfolk and Washing
ton to St Louis, Little Rock, Memphis,
Greenville and Mobile so that the Mobile ft
Ohio was a connecting link between the
western terminals of this big system which
spreads Us lines all over the south.
The Wisconsin Central is another north
and south line which has recently been
absorbed. Having been bought by the On
clnnatt, Hamilton ft Dayton, which is con
trolled by the Bradford Interests. The
Burlington, Cedar Rapids ft Northern waa
another north and south line of some
prominence which was taken over by the
Rock Island system.
Always a the Market.
One road which constantly stays on the
market Is the Minneapolis ft St. Louis and
also the Iowa Central of which Edwin
Hawley U president These lines connect
Minneapolis with central Iowa and then con
nect with St Louis and Kansas City by
means of the Wabash. Omaha, Chicago
and Sioux City are reached by the Illinois
Central It has often been thought that
Mr. Harriman would buy these lines.
For years the Illinois Central remained a

middle west to the gulf. Harriman tried
to absorb the line and then was precipitated
the long war between Harriman and Fish
which culminated In Fish being ousted
from control and Harriman securing this
double-track outlet to the gulf.
The Illinois Central still continues to be
