Attorney General W."' T. Thompson today
wrote a letter to elicit an explanation from
County Attorney William Morrow of 8cotf
1 Bluff county for being of record in the de
fence of the case of the state against the
Mlnat&re Mutual Canal and Irrigation com
pany, when the statutes require the assist
ance of the county legal officials In prose

Not long ago the State Board Of Irriga
tion n.t gut I representative to Scott's
Bluff county with order concerning the
neadgates of the ditch used by this com
pany. Later the suit was brought to en-
force thl order, and now when the papers
come to the attorney general' office he
find the cmiritv attorney of Scott's Bluff
lined Iid with the other side. The law die
quallfl him from so acting and unless he
can make a proper explanation tne attorney
general will take steps to make Morrow

W. T. Thompson, attorney general, who
Mi recently appointed to a portion In the
Treasury department at Washington, h
leased his house here land expecta to go to
Washington about the first of October. It
is very probable that Mr. Thompson will
not resign his office as attorney general.
and that If he does have to resign Governor
Bhallenberger will not fill the vacancy until
after election. The governor and Mr.
Thompson have become good friends dur
ing the last two .years, and because " of
, their, close, relations. t Is very probable
the office of attorney general win noi m
declared vacant when Mr. Thompson goes
to Washington. Being a republican, of
coufsk, Mr. Thompson would not like to
resign and have his place filled by a dem
ocrat, .and being, a good friend of the at
torney general. Governor Bhallenberger
would not like to hinder Mr. Thompson
In taking over his new job.

great extent the evidence given by Reuther
and Bar bott, particularly regarding the lax

Polly's connection with the Ostermann
company, he said, covered the years 1907,
1908 and 1909, during which time he declared
that rom 55 to 150 per cent was added, to
all of the Illinois Central's biHs. He stated
further that he and other employes of - the
Ostermann company had access to the
OK" stamps used by the railroad's car
inspectors and that he frequently thus
stamped bills to be presented to tba rail
road company for payment.

FOR TEN YEARS
Itching and Burning Terrible. Ap
pearance Worse. Had Specialists
and X-Ray, with Some Success,
Others without Relief. Used Cuti
cura. In 4 Days Relieved. Inside
of 2 Weeks Cured.
"I bad been suffering with psoriasis
for a period of ten years. It would dis
appear occasionally for a year or so and
then return in worse form than before.
The last attack came on a little over a
year ago, and by early summer had
covered me all over. The itching and
burning were terrible, and my appear
ance was worse. I had trina different
specialist and had had th X-rays used
on me, sometimes with some sucoea and
at other without relief. In the early
fall of 1900 I was induced to try tha
Cutioura treatment, by a party who
had heard of a remarkable cur it had
made, and I confess that I started in,
not only without faith, but with every
prejudice against the medicine. In four
days I was relieved of the inconvenience,
and inside of two week cured, except
for a slight discoloration of the skin,
which wore off in a few week. I sub
sequently saw my friend Mr.
who had the same trouble. When h
saw the wonderful effect of Cuticura
upon nie, he at one started the entire
treatment and wa well 'in about ten
days. I beg to thank you for the relief
you have given me, and if any one wants
my testimony a to the merit of Cuticura
for that trouble and will send me a
stamped envelope with their address on
it, I will be glad to send them a recom
mendation under my own signature.
