The opinion is as follows;

Tlie amendment makes a radical change
In thv pie-tMsting section 1, In that It un
dertakes to create a board to he known as
the "formal board of education." which
shall have the control and direction of
the normal education of the state, includ- '
tng normal schools and Junior normals,
and shall suceed to. take the place of. and
exercise the powers of the present "board

vides that the five members of the board
ebsll be appointed by the governor by and
with tho advice and Consent of the senate,
and that such five members shall be ap
pointed within ten days after the act takes
effect and before the adjournment of the
present session of the legislature. The act
carried aa emergency clause and was ap
proved by the governor and filed In the
office of the secretary of state April 1, ISO?.
A new board has been appointed under
the terms of the amended section 1, and the
five members appointed by the governor
have been confirmed by the senate. The
tirle to house roll 386 is as follows:
' "An act to amend sections one n and

If the authority of the' Board or plica

Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound? We can
furnish positive proof that it has made many remarkable

Evidence like the above is abundant showing that the
derangements of the female organism which breed all kinds
of miserable feelings and which ordinary practice does not
cure, are the very disorders that give way to Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Women who are afflicted with similar troubles, after
reading two such letters as the above, should be encouraged
to try this wonderfully helpful remedy.
For ao years Lydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable

It Is enough If It clearly have that erfect.

It has been the policy of the executive
state offerers to consider all acts passed
by the legislature ss constitutional and
valid until declared otherwise by the courts.
In this case, however, we are confronted
with the situation of being called upon to
determine which of two acts of the legisla
ture is valid and shall toe followed. Sec
11, aa It now stands In the statute, requires
you to Issue warrants upon certificates by
the secretary of the "BnHrd of Kducation"
and countersigned by the president, while
the amended Section 1. says that the "Nor
mal Hoard of Kducation" shsll succeed to,
take the place of and exercls the powers
nf the present Hoard of Ediicatinn as
"herein provided." Section 1 docs not un
dertake to provide bow the "Normal Board
of Kducation" shall exercise its powers.
The exercise pf Its powers and duties are
all defined in sections from 2 to 21. inclu
sive, which are not in terms undertaken
to be amended by House Roll ZSfi.
In view nf the ouesl lonable constitu
tionally' of this act of the legislature, the
conflicting provisions of the statue, and
the fact that the question here presented
Involves the expenditure of public funds,
I think vou would be warranted In refusing
to issue wnrrants on certificates of either
the "Board of Kducation" or the "Normal
Ho-jrd of Education" until an adjudication
may be had on this matter by the court.

x Story of Escape
Companion of Miller Came Near
Losing; Life in Grand Island
RAND ISLANp, Neb., April 19. (Spe
cial.) William Johnson, who was severely
burned before escaping from the base
ment of the Miller Furniture store, and
In which F. M. Miller lost his life, is
recovering, his severest burns being upon
the hands and lower extremities ot the
arms. Johnson has since recovering from
the effects of', opiates administered after
his Injury been able to relate the details
as to ihe cause of the fatality. After
Miller had come up to give the alarm
he and Johnson again went down Into the
basement with hand fire extinguishers to
make an effort to extinguish the flames.
But the flames and smoke were such as to
drive them back. When they went to lift
the elevator the rope would not work.
There was no stairway at the rear. John
son leaped at a beam overhead, caught it,
pulled himself up and barely escaped.
Millet's heavier and shorter of stature,
was evidently unable to reach it. Immedi
ately the smoke and flames so rushed Up
the shaft that nothing could be done, to
save Miller, whose exact location was
also not known excepting b'y the ex
hausted and overcome Johnson, who, as
soon as he could, made known where be
had last seen bis employer.
The funeral of Frank M. Miller took
place at the First Methodist church Mon
day afternoon, the services being tinder

Not only a bridge over the Missouri

offered the two cities Tuesday, when thu
special order of business at the executive
committee of the Commercial club will be
to receive and discuss the proposition.
The interurban railway organizers elslm
to have a large amount of right-of-way
running east of Council Bluffs, almost to
Des Moines, also northeast of the city,
through a rich farming country. Their
offer waa made to Howard H. Baldrlge,
chairman of the bridge committee ot the
Omaha Commercial club. The names of
the men who have the railway project In
hand are being kept secret at their own
The proposition is practically that the
Interurban lines to enter Omaha In the
future will have to erect a bridge within
a few year, anyway, and those back of
the Dea Molnes-Omaha scheme offer to
pay half the cost of the bridge, make it a
two-deck structure, the Interurban. to use
the upper deck, the pedestrians and teams
to use the lower deck free, of charge.

Rheumatism is due to an excess of uric acid, aa irritating, inflammatory
accumulation, which gets into tha circulation because of weak kidneys,
constipation, indigestion, and other physical irregularities which art usually
considered of no importance. Nothing applied externally can aver reach tha
aeat of this trouble; the most such treatment can do is sooth tha paint
temporarily; while potash and other mineral medicines really add to tha
acidity of the blood, and this fluid therefore continually grows mora acrid
and vitiated. Then instead of nourishing the different muscles and joints,
keeping them in a normally supple and elastic condition, it gradually harden
sand stiffens them by drying up the natural oila and fluids. Rheumatism caa
never be cured until the blood is purified. S. 8. 8. thoroughly cleanses and
renovates tha circulation by neutralizing the acids and driving the causa
from the system. It strengthens and invigorates tha blood so that instead
of a sour, weak stream, depositing acrid and painful corrosive matter la
tha muscles Joints and bonea, it nourishes tha entire body with pure, rich,
blood and" permanently cures Rheumatism. S. 8. S. contains no potash,
alkali or other harmful mineral, but is made entirely of roots, herbs and
barks of great purifying and tonio properties. Book on Rheumatism and
any medical advice free to all who write.
