Constipation Caused CANON BELL'S WORD FLAYED

All form of constipation, bowel or intes
tlnsi Initial twt most of their origin to the
Improper digestion of food. Tho bowels
measure 10 feet The Inside walls or sur

trol million of little mouth or suckers
whlrh are supposed to take nourishment
from the food aa It leaves the stomach and

When Indigestion, dyspepsia or stom:.eh
trouble occur, the food being undigested,
peeses over these million of tnoutha. It la

The little mouths suck It up. Impart these
Impiititlea to the blood. Impregnate the little
nerves wltb poison and sq the work of con

A natural Juice or secretion belongs nor-H
rnally In the little cells and glands along

or bcwel. When Indigestion occurs this
Julo Is lacking and ' so the mass of
waste matter cannot- pass along as It
should snd Is plied up and caked In tho
bowel, thus bringing pain and misery.
After a while the nerves and nerve centers
which give vigor and life to the bowel be

Stuart Dyspepsia Tablets, when taken
after meals, digests the food properly even

The stomach Is the cause. Common sense

of the testimony Of Rev. R. B. H. Roll,

Says Daniel Is Ambitlonai
After suggesting that Daniel was anl
rriatccLhy a dvslro. to make a name for him
self rather than serve the public and with
the hope of getting the position, now hold
by English, Connell turned to th" evidence
of the clergymen and up till noon occupied
himself with Canon Bell. Dean Beccher
was not specifically treated by him beforo
"Here are these preachers engaged in
this crusade," said the lawyer, "and so far
as their activities are in connection with
the Juvenilo court I have no criticism to
offer. But when men of their position and
station in life act as they have and as Is
shown by their own testimony 1 think 1
have some right to take exception. I be
lieve in and respect the cloth. I believe In
and honor the clergy and 1 do particularly
esteem and reverence tho Catholics for
their sincerity and honor and 1 have a
high respect for the Catholic priests, who
would let their arms burn from the tip of
finger to shoulder rather than reveal the
secrets of the confessional.
"Hut has It come to this, thai when a
person goes to clergymen like these two,
to men wearing the cross and sworn by
holy vows, the clergyman is to determine
for himself whether It Is a voluntary state
ment or a secret of the confessional '.'"
After speaking of the secrecy practiced
by lawyers and doctors with regard to
client's confidences, Mr. Connell returned
to the clergy and exclaimed:
"Thank Ood, secrets are kept 6 far as
the Catholic church is concerned, and It is
with regret that we find 11 different here
on the part of Protestants."

At this point spectatot8 wore moved to
Inquire of each other as to the religious
complexion of tho Jury and discovered that
nominally at least a considerable variety
of faiths and sects ate represented.
"If these preachers," shouted thn
speaker, "would only follow In tho foot
steps of tho Dlvino Teacher Instead of fol
lowing false gods, there would bo fewer
empty pews on Sunday mornings, If the
preachers would only follow the meek and
lowly Jesus Instead of Elmer Thomas,

reeking with gengeful spirit. Ignoring the
lesson taught by tho Master in the tlarden

went over in detail that famous scene.
Turning back to Mr. Hell 'he criticised his
testimony In many particulars and
while talking of tho cross-examination
termed him "an artful dodger."
Twice more during his address Connell
digressed from Ills main themo to say that
he was making no general raid '.igainat

WOMAN STRIKES FOOTPAD

lie Accost Iter on street
' at tght.
A young woman connected ' with one of
the federal departments Is the heroine of
an incident transpiring on Seventeenth
street between Cass and California streets
about 9 o'clock Monday evening, which
shows that she Is amply able to take care
of herself In an emergency.
She was returning from an entertainment
at Unity church and was on her way
home, when a rather tough looking man
stepped out from the darkness of tho alley
and Impertinently accosted her. The young
woman, Instead of screaming or running,
struck her assailant squarely In the mouth
with her fist, slightly Injuring her hand
by the Impart and brought blood. The
man wiped the blood from his mouth and
disappeared down the alley.
Tho young woman, who asks that her
name be withheld, said:
"I would not even have called attention
to the matter but for the fact that It might
put young women on their guard when
they happen to be alone on the street after
dark. I believe a little presence of mind
displayed when accosted by strangers is
much belter than showing fear.
"No, I did not report the case to the
police, because. 1 did not wish to seek any
notoriety. It is possible that the man was
drunk and I think his intention was robbery."

SPAQNOLA AND JACOB ARE SAD
Italian Lovers Beaten In First Ronnd
In Contest with Statute of
'The course of true love, proverbially
lugged, struck an unusually harsh snag at
the court house when Spagnola Gaetanan
and Jacob Pltlpone were refused a license
To -alleviate any harassing uncertainty
about the matter it may be stated at once
that Jacob and Spagnola saw the light of

neither Is married and Jacob well enough

which she has been accustomed."
But there Is one other condition which

it had been half filled out. It developed
that the pair are first cousins and the law
of the sovereign state of Nebraska opposes
such consanguineous nuptials so to speak.
Incidentally had the pair secured ' the li

Defective electric wiring .was not th
cause of the fire In the C. H, Nash house,

morning, says City Electrician Mlchaelsen,
who lias made a thorough examination of
the premlsea. Mr. Michaelren la of the
opinion that the fire was caused by rats

dents had made a nest lu a warm spot
immedlittely above a turn In two steam
pipes. That the fire was not cauaed by de
fective wiring Is shown in the condition
of the wires, which, after the fire, wers
in place and In go"d condition, not even
touching one another, the electrician says.
"And, to clinch the argument," said Mr,
Michaelsen, "the electric current had been
turned off three hours before the fire oc
curred, and when turned on at the time
of the fire every light In the house burned,
which could not have been the case had
the wiring been defective."

cumbrances or clouds from certain titles

to dispose of It throughout the country

Nome Nebraska Victims.
One of the Nebraska defendants cited to
appear In the case Monday night Is J. P.
Falter of Plattamouth. Mr. Falter stated
that he was Inveigled Into tho scheme and
exchanged five pieces of his Plattamouth
property for some of the Okluhoma lands,
and later discovered on Investigation that
one of the pieces of property transferred
to him In Oklahoma was the property of a
6-month-old Indian child and another piece
belonged to an aged Indian, neither of
whom were legally qualified to make any
transfer of property. Consequently he at
once set to work to secure an abrogation
of the contract and after much difficulty
ar.d considerable expense got his Platta
mouth property back and washed his hands
of the whole affair.
Another Nebraska investor is a Mr. Rodg
era of Wymore, who was similarly de
fra'Jded, and secured an abrogation of his
contract and recovered his Nebraska prop
erty. Mr. Falter expresses his willingness
to assist In unravelling the tangle and the
prosecution of the Oklahoma holding com
pany to the extent of his financial means,
and has no hesitancy In denouncing the
gross character of the fraud.
It appears that the more tho matter is
gone Into that the more it seems to be
honeycombed with the grossest fraud and
may develop Into one of the most vulossal
land frauds of recent 'years.
The government In summoning t lie Ne
braska and other parties as parties defend
ant Is merely to establish the equity phase
of the at fair,, to clear the clouds on the
title to 1 1 iu Indian lands and thereby get
at the actual offendeis.
