ination, the third week of the Dr. B.

cising premptory challenges, so It Is pos
slbl that the first evidence will be heard

A possibility of George A. Smith, a

veloped last nlKlit. when he was taken
severely 111 with acute Indigestion. He
had been suffering for several days, but
his case whs not declared to be serious
until lust night. A physlclal was called
to attend him.
It developed today that new scientists
will enter the case In behalf of the state.
At the last trial the defense made a de
termined attack on the states experts, de
claring they were frequently witnesses In
big murder trial. The stats has refused
thue far to make known the name of
more than, one new expert, He Is Ralph
W. Webater of . the University of Chi
cago. He Is a oo-worker of Dr. Walter 8.
Haines, who testified for the state In the

port from all over Nebraska, leathered
by agents and crop reports. The last

Is fully up to the average and the grain
looks well.
Potatoes are all duu, and while the
yield Is below the average, owing to the

fully as much as usual. In some sections
of the state, particularly In the north
west, tho yield la fully tip thst of
former years,
fugnr beets,' wherever planted, have
done well,, the yield being better than an
average. This crop Is not entirely liar

Apples sre abundant, but are selling at
rather low prices.
Owing to recent heavy rains, pastures
sre In excellent condition, with rait and

" Did you ever ftop to think that your corsets will
'wear much longer if they FIT YOU accurately?
It's well worth while to take time enough to be
correctly fitted in a model that exactly suits your figure
not only for comfort's lake, but for economy,
.'. Here's a safe rule : You will get the most WEAR
cut of a corset that gives you COMFORT.
It is especially necessary that you shall be properly
fitted when you buy a Nemo Corset. As we have
. already told you, Nemos are very positive corsets, made
to Jo things; and that's the very reason why they are
so far superior to the ordinary, go-as-you-please corsets
which are so much alike that it doesn't matter which
kind you buy.
Take that great Nemo feature, the Lastikops Bandict
-it will not be comfortable if you try to wear a No. 522
when you ought to have a No. 523, or if your figure
calls for an entirely different type of a corset. But if you
need that kind of a corset, and select the right model,
properly .fitted, nothing could ever induce you lo wear
any other corset.
Lots of women, who couldn't wear a No. 523, get
plenty of abdominal support from Nemo No. 319
(pictured to-day), and secure additional figure-reduction
and a fine ' in-sloping-hip " effect from the long skirt
' with hs hip-conftning bands of clastic.
That's vhy we Arongly advise you. to take time to",
be correctly fitted in a Nemo the right model in the
right size. If you do this, no other corset on earth will '
' give you so much comfort and such perfect style.
Speaking of corset flexibility arid c7ajf7cs-L-alway,s
remember that Lastikops, Webbing, a, Netmo. JnvehtionZ'.

Dr.Wiley furnished the text for it when he said:
' 'Nowhere in the world is food so plentiful ; nowhere in
the world is it so badJy cooked. "
We get far too little out of the legitimate pleasures of
the table. The whole world has much to teach us about new
foods and new ways of preparing old foods, but we do not
listen. Meanwhile our own foods are not treated with
proper respect. The Veal smoked ham has disappeared. Only
a few know how much better sweet butter is than salt. We
put fowls in cold storage without drawing them. We do
not let our fruit ripen on the tree. Jf we only knew how,
our food would not only cost 'us much less, but would be
infinitely pleasanter to cat. . , -i
