Prominent Nebraska City Christian
Science Healer Succumbs to Sud

NEBRASKA CITY, Neb., May 19 (Spe

by the announcement that Mrs. Herbert
8. Cronkhite, one of the beat known and
best loved women of th.i city, had
dropped dead shortly after entering the
home of Charles Gerber, where she went
to give a treatment, being one of the
healers of the Christian Science church of
this rlty. She wua stricken with apoplexy
shortly after entering the home and died
before anyone but the members of the
Oerber family could reach her. She came
to this city twelve years ago, with hr
husband, who Is a passenger conductor on
the Burlington road, and since that time
had made firm friends with everyone in
this city. She la a prominent member of
the Order of the Eastern Star and during
16, and 1907 was worthy matron of
the lodge in this city and In litoii wan grand
worthy lecturer of the order for this state
and one of the leading workers of the
grand lodge. She was one of the leaders
of society until she took up the work of
a Christian Scientist and was one of the
leading members of that church and one
of the leading factors In the erection of
a new church which was dedicated two
weeks ago. She was K years of age snd
leaves a husband and a son, the latter be
ing a resident of Montana. As yet no
arrangements have been made for her
ward told a story Implicating Heddendorf
as the one who fired the shot. Crites is

PERI', Neb.. May 19. tSpeclal.)-Miss
Eliza C. Morgnn, who for twenty-six years
was the preceptress of Mojnt Vernon
dormitory of ' the Peru Normal, has Just
sent President Crabtree Word that she will
attend the commencement exercises hera
on June 1. Miss Morgan doubtless did
more than anyv other one woman to shape
the early conduct of the pupils during
those pioneer ytars of the normal's life and
growth. She Is highly praised by the first
president, J. M. McKensle, as a woman of
exceptionally strong Influence over both
men and women. Probably no other an
nouncement concerning the commencement
exercises will so thoroughly thrill the
hearts of the alumni es the news that Miss
Morgan, now a gray-haired woman living
in quiet retirement at Rochester. N. Y.,
will return to clasp hands with those who
are living witi esses to her marvelous in
fluence in the State Normal school.

bonds voted to build the city hail. State
Treasurer Brian has ugred to buy the

able to disp se of the bonds to Mr. Brian
at 4 per cent and should he do so would
save the city $1,000.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Msy 19. - (8pecial.) - Chris
Gruenther has Just declined the portion of
secretary to the State Hanking board. The
place was offered to him. so It is reported
on the most reliable authority, by oOvernor
Shallenberger. The Job rays M. a year,
but Mr. Gruenther has steadfastly refused
any political Jobs at the hands of the man
This leaves the governor In the clear now
to appoint some gwd competent republican
to fill the place, as he ha done his duty
und offered It to a member of his own
The action of the governor In offering to
Oruenther the best place at his disposal
la an Indication that the executive would
like to have the Platte county man on his
staff during the next campaign.
Jhe appointment of Arthur Mullen as
state oil Inspector and ex-offlcio governor
was a hard dig at Gruenther, who had
managed the governor's campaign while
Mullen was helping Tom Allen mail out
copies of the Prince of Peace In the interest
of Mr. Bryan. Inasmuch as Gruenther had
taken upon himself, at the request of the
governor, the entire management of his
campaign It was naturally supposed the
places to. be filled by the executive would
be distributed among the persons whom
Gruenther called to his assistance.
Mullen got the first Job and another par
son who was quoted as being for Governor
Sheldon got one of the next best. Of
course these things did not fit In with the
order of business which Gruenther had
been led to expect would be carried out
and so far as anyone has noticed Gruen
ther has not been around the governor's
off'ce since his Inauguration.
While it la very probable Gruenther could1
not qualify for the plae. sunder the law,
even if he had any desire to take it, the
governor has taken advantage of his op
portunity to turn his good side to his late
Incidentally the offer of the place to
Gruenther may have been the cause of
Arthur Mullen's attack of the "pinkeyes."
Two Defendants Cleared.
Holding that no proof of a conspiracy
had been made. Judge T. C. Munger in the

two of the men sued by Harold W. Forrest
for $26,000 because of alleged false imprison
ment on the charge of embesiling money
from tho Nebraska Hardware company.
This left City Detective James Mnlone as
the sole defendant In the suit and the trial
was continued with h'.m on the stand.

The Hungriest Boy on Earth
is the growing boy at ten. You can't ' build
him out of books or sermons. His growing
body demands more building
material than the adult. Nature
is making for him a structure of
brain, bone and muscular tissue.
She must build it out of the food
he eats 'and the air he breathes. The"lDest food
for the growing boy or girl is
Shredded Wheal Biscuit
because it contains all the material for making
bone, brain and muscle. The crispness of the
shreds promotes mastication, which means sound teeth.
The food to study on, to play on for children and
grown-ups. Your Grocer sells it.
Shredded Wheat is made of the choicest selected white
wheat, cleaned, steam-cooked and baked. Try it for breakfast
to-morrow with milk or cream. The Biscuit is also delicious -for
