Connty Exhibit at Stat Fair.
About 4,000 la offered In premiums at
the coming Nebraska State fair, September
6 to 10. for agricultural product. These
are usually shown In county collective ex
hibtts and are valuable advertisements for
a county. In many of the live, progressive
counties the commissioners or Board of
Supervisors makes an appropriation for an
exhibit representing that county at the
s.aie lair, and the result Is that the county
doing this is the one which attracts Uic
attention of the prospective settler to a
much larger degree than those which do r.ot
believe in advertising. Among the counties
that have already mad6 entries are:

CRAWFORD. Neb.. Aug. 4 ( Special.)
Walter Berger, the 18-year-old farmer lad
who Is In Jail here In connection with the
attempted wrecking of the Burlington
train near this place, according to officials
has confessed. He now tells the of
ficers that he alone did all 'he work of
piling i ails on the track which might t.ave
put the heavy Burlington train Into the
ditch. He says that he alone Is impll
cated and that the story he toid yesterday
about being bound to tfie fence by two
masked robbers while they piled the rails
that he might get aboard for Alliance to
receive medical treatment. Thta last part
of the story is not believed by the offl
cers nor by the railroad officials.
Berger at first told a thrilling story of
being tied to the fence by the two masked
bandits, who threatened to shoot if he
moved. He told of a scuffle with them
after he bad worked himself free from his
bunds. His former story was that after
h ran from the bandits they shot and
hit his little finger.
It Is not believed that his last story of
doing all the work himself Is the true on,
as he does not bear the best kind of a
reputation. Some red paper was found
nailed to a post at which he had been prac
ticing target shooting. This paper has
been traced to Berger, as It was wrapped
around a new shtrt, which he had bought
a couple of nights before at Marahand.

The police department Is making diligent
efforts to ascertain the Identity of a man,
Human and child who passed through this
city In an automobile, presumably from
the eastern part of the state and bound for
Kearney. When the machine approached
the canning factory in the eastern part
of the city It met a team driven by two
stock yards men. who were trailing a
horse at the rear of their buggy. The
autolst kept up full speed In passing the
stockmen and darted In so closely behind
the latter that they struck the horse, caus
ing a leg and hip of the animal to be
broken and the collision snapping the rope
to which It was tied to trie buggy and al
most causing further damage and acci
dent. The driver of the machine saw what
had happened, but kept up full speed
throught the city and on westward, never
stopping to ascertain whether any of the
men had been hurt. The horse, valued
at $100. had immediately to be shot.

At any rate the governor left for Omaha

BONDED DEBT OF CITY
WILL BE CUT THIS FALL
Redared Fifty Thonssknfl Dollars, aa
More Than That Mill Be In
Omaha's obnded Indebtedness will be de
creased this fall by 160,000.
City Comptroller Ixjbeck haa notified the
finance committee of the city council that
there will be a balance of more than this
amount In the sinking fund and that
bonds In th sum of SoO.OOO may be paid off
without crippling the city's finances In
City hall bonds in the sum of tlOO.ooo
come due October 1, and one-half of this
issue will be taken up. The other $50,000
will be renewed. The old bonds bear 6
per cent Interest, but the comptroller be
lieves that 44 per cent for renewal pur
poses will find easy sal.
City hall bonds were issued In the sum
of IfiOO.OOO. Last year $28,000 was paid and
with the paying of $50,000 this fall only
$426,000 will remain.
City hall bonds are the only bonds that
come due this year. In July, 1910. bonds In
the sum of $276,000 will come due. These are
In four issues-flOO.OUO city hall, $75,000 pav

Although the estimated tax levy for
Douglas county for this year is 16 mills,
one half mill higher than last ear. County
Comptroller Solomon thinks It probablo
the state levy will be one-half mill lower
and the total will be about the same.
The reduction In th aiate levy ia due
to the payment of tne st&ie aebt, which
ha now Been completed. Since the enact
ment of the Sheldon act In 1903 It has been
necessary to levy 1 mill toward the pay
ment of the debt, but with the debt fi
nally removed It la very likely that the
other Increases will still leave a total
H mill lower.
The increase In Douglas county Is dus
to the bond-sinking fund which must be
kept up to build the new court house.
Beside this $15S,000 will have to be paid
on S per cent funding bonds which fall
due July 1. 1911.
As estimated by Comptroller Solomon
the Douglas county levy will be as fol
low on a valuation of $36,000,000. Eighty
five per cent of the total Is taken because
the warrants for payment can be drawn
on only 65 per cent of the levy until the
money Is actually In the treasury;

dreds of chronic cases which they have cured since opening their Omaha
offices have made them hosts of friends in Omaha and the surrounding
Those who are suffering with Paralysis, Rheumatism, Goitre, Epilepsy,
Gall Stones, Diseases of the Liver, Kidney, Stomach, Blood, Chronic and Nerv
