NEBRASKA ' CITY. Neb., May S. (Spe

the telegraph poles and wires running along
the right-of-way of the Burlington railway
In this county had never been listed for
taxes. The Burlington railway claimed
that the property did not belong to It and
the Western Union Telegraph company
manager stated it did not belong to that
company, so the county attorney was In
structed to take aclon to confiscate the
lines. Yesterday an urgent appeal was re
ceived from the Western Union stating
that company owned all of the wires and
. poles and was willing to pay taxes thereon.
These lines have escaped taxation ever

Kelt Thrall of the Sea.
Fruition of' a romance In middle life
whloh began at sea two years ago during
a trip to Europe by a party of Nebraska
people will take place In the near future
with the marriage of Arnott C. Ricketts,
the well known Lincoln attorney, and Miss
Sarah hompson, a Fremont school teacher.
Rumors of this even have been heard with
some frequency, and, although the formal
announcement of it Is lacking, friends of
the couple know that it Is lo be solemnized
during the month of roses.
Miss Thompson and Mr. Ricketts were
members of a tourist expedition to Europe
In the summer of 1907. under the guidance
of Professor J. T. Lees of this dry. During
the ocean voyage they found each other's
company very congenial, and the close
friendship that grew up between them on
the three months' tour led others of 1he
party to predict a matrimonial culmination
before the return Journey began. This was
something over and beyond the guaranty
held out by the organizer of the trip in
the way o fits pleasures and benefits.

The election of new officers was com
pleted by the Order of the Eastern Star
this morning, when Mrs. Emma H. Fuller
of Nelson, was named for grand con
ductress and Mrs. K-lizabeth C. Gamble of
Plattsmouth was named for associate con-
This afternoon the new officers were
installed under nhe leadership of Past
Grand Matron Mrs. Marie I Apian of
Ruxhville. Prior to the Installation the
newly elected matron. Mrs. Hattle M.
8cott of Stromburg filled a number of
minor offices by appointment during her
term of office.
After 'the Installation unfinished business
was attended to and then the grand
chapter of 1909 was ready for adjournment
for another year. It Is declared that the
meeting has been one of the best In tho
history of the order. Nearly 600 members
have been In attendance and more enthusi
asm has been shown than at any annual
session heretofore. The next meeting will
ho at Omaha,
Malone Is Hesitating.
No steps of any sort have yet been
taken to secure a recount of the votce
cast for mayor at the late election. Tho
reason of it lies In tho fact that the re
turns are all sealed up in the city clerk's
office and cannot be reopened until Monday
night, when the council meets to canvass
and declares the result.
Mr. Malone says that all he wants Is
that the man who receives the most votes
receives the certificates and the place.
Tie says that he doesn't want to be mayor
so much ss he wants to see that the will
of the people as to who shall be mayor la
properly recorded In the returns. So many
stories of difference between the count and
the sctual vote cast have reached him
that he thinks the fair thing to do is to
have them all counted over again. These
stories are not authenticated In any con
vincing way. but are sufficient, he thinks,
to Justify the oeTIef that he did not get
all counted for him that were cast for
him: . . ,
Mayor Brown suggested today that the
candidates agree on. three men to do the
counting, and then let the candidates abide
by the result. He thought that , In this
way a long fight In the courts over-the
offlc could'be avoided, and good feeling
maintained. This plan has been suggested
to friends of Mr. Love.
But It was a Hard PaU.
It is hard to believe that coffee will put
a person in such a condition as It did an
Ohio woman. She tells her own story;
"I did not believe coffee caused my
trouble, and frequently said 1 liked it so
well I would not, nor could not quit drink
ing It. even If it took my life, but I was
a miserable sufferer from heart trouble
and nervous prostration for four years.
"I was scarcely able to be around at all.
Had no energy and didynot care for any
thing. Was emaciated and had a con
stant pain around my heart until I thought
i vould not endure it. For months I never
went to bed expecting to get up In the
morning. I felt as though 1 was liable to
die at any time during the night.
"Frequently I had nervous chills and the
least exi'itfment wo.ild drive sleep away
and any little nuise would upset me ter
ribly. 1 was gradually getting worse until
finally one time It came over me. and I
asked myself what is the use of being sick
all the time and buying medicine su that
1 could Indulge myself in coffee?
"So 1 thought I would see If 1 could quit
drinking coffee and got some Poatum to
help me quit. I made it strictly' according
to directions and I want to tell yo.i that
change was the greatest step In my life.
It was cany to quit coffee because I had
the Postum, which I like better than 1
like the old coffee.
"One by one t lie old troubles left, until
now I am In splendid health, nerves steady,
heart all right and the pain all gone.
Never have any more nervous chills, don't
take any medicine, can do all my house
work and have done a great deal beside.
"My sister-in-law, who visited me this
summer, had been an invalid for some
time, much as I was. I gut her to quit
coffee and drink Postum. She gained five
pounds In three wee-ks, and I never saw
such a change In anyone s health."

appears from time to time. They are gen
nine, true, and fall of human interest.
