refined glycerine. This agent possesses in
trlnsic medicinal properties of its own, being a most valuable

Glycerine plays an important part in Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery in the cure

Besides curing all the above distressing ailments, the "Golden Medical Discovery"
is a specific for all diseases of the mucous membranes, as catarrh, whether of the nasal
passages or of the stomach, bowels or other organs. Even in its ulcerative stages it will
yield to this sovereign remedy if its use be persevered in. In Chronic Catarrh of the

sudden colds, nor must it be expected to cure consumption in its advanced stages no
medicine will do that but for all the obstinate, chronic coughs, which, if neglected, or

Wyoming will bo permitted to depreciate
the value of Nebraska Interests and ma

new construction In Wyoming and for
people who are not yet on the land. Some
time ago the secretary of the interior at

applications have yet the approval of the

and secretary of the Scott's Bluff club,
Charles A. Merrill and G. L. Shumway,
and A. Ij. Bowen, J. C. McCreary and

CLAIM NEW POLICE OFFICE
FAIRBURY, Neb.. Nov. 15. (Special.)
The prohibitionists of this city have
tirred up quite a bit or excitement since
election by their attorney, W. J. Moss,
claiming that II. V. McCloskey was

ture passed a law abolishing the office
of police Judge in cities of tho first class
and creating instead the office of police
magistrate: also iinst'ldlng for his olec
tlon at the general election, instead of
at the city election.

board of Jefferson oounty to declare Mr.
McCloskey elected, but it conferred with
County Attorney Frank L. Rain, Mr.
Rain took a trip to Lincoln and asked
counsel of the attorney general. '
Mr. Rain advises that the attorney
general of Nebraska held that the per
son holding the office of police Judge
would hold . for the term for which he
was elected, when the office of police
magistrate would then be filled as pro
vided by law. It is said that Moss may
carry the case up to a higher court.

STATE AUDITOR SANCTIONS
LIFE INSURANCE CHANGE
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Nov. 16. (Bneulal.) The
Bankers' Life insurance company of Des
Moines, la., has been given permission to
do business In this state as a legal reserve
company, although members will be oon
tlnued on the assessment plan. New
members will be written on the legal
reserve basis. Tho state auditor does not
believe that euulty can be maintained
between tho two classes of membra, but
as the Iowa Insurance department has
approved tho plan Auditor liarton thinks
that no good to the members of the
organisation could come of his attempts
to hold out on thn mutter and so has
authorized the issuing of a license.
in setting out his position on the
matter, Auditor Darton has Issued th
following statement with regard to th
new plan of the.Dea Moines company:
The Nebraska department believes tlia
It Is lmHssll)l to maintain exact e(iiit
between the two classes of members on
the plan adopted. Neither does It approv.
of the manner In which the change ha
been brought about. In that It was no.
submitted to the members for their ap
proval, but Inasmuch ax It comes befor
our department ss on accomplished fact,
and that the directors In changing their
plan had consulted with ana secureo ine
unqualified approval of the Iowa depart
ment. It Is nut 'bought that any benefit
to the jiunibijs would result, from ie-
N uiioHitoii Is raised as to tho honeMtv
or sincerity of the management In making
ilila r-hnrmV either r:in It lie doubted that
a change, was desirable, but In any mutual ,
company tho members comprise the com I
puny. It is theirs to no wmi nn mry
fit in accordance wmi law. aim we tun
only regret that the directors did not tulic j
a little more tune and minimi inn mime
mutter candidly to the members.
Tho laws of Iowa provide mat ine
directors of u company of this class may
lake Mich action und bring alKiut the
results accomplished in this case. We
think, however .that such a law Is open
to severe criticism and is calculated to
i. volet true mutuality.
