Henry Stehr is Put
on Trial on Charge
of Murdering Child
MADISON, Neb.. Nov. 21.-(Speclal Tel
egramsThe Impaneling of the Jury In
the cae of the state against Henry
Stehr, charged with the murder of his
4-year-old stepson, Kurt Stehr. by cruelty
and neglect, was completed today. County
Attorney James Nichols made the opening
statement for the state and M. D. Tyker
for the defense, i
The first witness Introduced by the
state ai Ernestino Clents, a nurse, at
whore home the unfortunate boy was
brought by his stepfather, Stehr, and
where he died after having both feet
amputated. She testified to the bruised
and neglected condition of the boy, after
which alio was temporarily excused, and
her daughter, Margaret Clents, a pro
fcsslonul nurse, who had charge of flio
case during the operation, coiroborated
the statements of her mother.
At this point In the trial the state at
tempted to get before the Jury the state
ments mnde by Stehr to the Clentzs and
others when ho brought the boy to their
home, but the court held that no founda
tion had been laid for such testimony and
would not permit the nurses to testify
on these matters. Thereupon Miss Clents
was temporarily excuneI and Joseph
Lee-bus, .who accompanied Stehr to the
Clents home with the dying boy, was
colled for the purpose of providing a
foundation upon which the testimony of
the nurses might be admitted touching
statements made to them by Stehr.
Owing to the failure of Dr. A. B. Tas
Jean, the physician who attended the
child in his last hours, to respond' to the
subpoena, court adjourned until 9 o'clock
Wednesday morning. Twenty-five wit
nesses for the state and a large number
for the defense have been summoned.
Sentiment runs high against the Stehrs
at Norfolk and the progress of the case
is being watched with keenest Interest.

STATE BANKS ARE RELEASED
State Treasurer Decides to Take
Action in Matter.
GUARANTY LAW COVERS CASE
Will Be I'onalble for All State lianas
to De,lteleaaed from Ponds
for. State Kuuds by First
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Nov. 21.-(Speclal.)-State
Treasurer Walter A. George has decided
to release state banks from depository
bonds. Acting under a decision tf the
attorney general, based on the guaranty
law as amended by the la.-tt legislature,
he will require no bonds for the security
of state funds In depository banks. The
manner in which bonds are to tie released
hns been studied out and the treasurer
announces that when banks under tne
guaranty law report to the Stat Bank
ing board the amount of public funds
they have no deposit and pay the tax
required for the guaranty fund their
bonds may be released. The bunks are
required by the guaranty law to reoi-t
the amount of deposits June 1 and De
cember 1 and the tax under tho guaranty
law must be set aside by the bunks July
1 and January 1. It will thus be possible
for all state banks to be released from
bonds for state funds by January 1. The
state treasurer Is still prohibited from
depositing more than 30 per cent of th
capital stock of a bank.
The state treasurer hns sent the follow
ing letter to state banks:
Gentlemen: The supreme courf'haH de
ckled in favor of the guaranty depository
lhe "Itorney general holds that
public moneys deposited in banks coma
uimer nils IHW.
The admlnlHtia'tion will enforce the laws
of the state, and I, as state treasurer,
would like to have the state banks under
this law and, while moat all of the banks
of the state that are stale depositories
furnished bonds to cover their -deposits
for my term of office, which will mature
in January, 1913. 1 am of the opinion that
the hanks should renort to th hunklnir
department the amount of publio funds
held on deposit, so that they may be as
sessed the same oer cent on thoxn on
Individual deposits. Then I could close
the account under the bond and reopen it
under the depository law.
It seems to me that the banks that
have reported to the banking department
public funds deposited by public officials,
and having reported them as otherwise
provided for, would not come under the
depository law. but Just as soon as the
banks have reported to the banking
department the public funds so deposited
and paid their 3 per cent under tho
guaranty law, they would then be strictly
under the law.
It is my desire to place all deposits of
state unoer tne guaranty law. Respect
fully yours. S W. A. GEORGE.

A NOBLE RECORD
Of many hundreds of thousands of cures forms a well sustained basis for
every claim put forth by the makers of Dr. PJERCE'S GOLDEN MEDICAL
DISCOVERY as a remedy for many of the troublesome affections which afflict
mankind; yet it is not extolled as a "cure-all' V by any means. No extravagant
promises are flaunted before the public to arouse false hopes in the afflicted.
Your neighbors probably know of some of its many cures; ask them.
Through strengthening and arousing the stomach, liver and
bowels Into vigorous action, digestion Is promoted, whereby
the blood Is enriched and purified, dlseaseproducing bac
terla destroyed and expelled from the body, and thus a
long list of skin, scrofulous and kindred affections are
overcome and sound, vigorous health established.
The "Discovery" contains no alcohol and no habit-forming drugs, and has
its every ingredient printed on its wrappers. This OPEN PUBLICITY places
it in a class distinct from the ordinary secret nostrums with which it has no re
lationship. Physicians, therefore, do not hesitate to prescribe it in bad cases of
indigestion, torpid liver or biliousness and in skin and blood affections. People
of intelligence and keen discernment employ it. The "Discovery" is a pure
glyceric extract of native medicinal roots of great curative potency, and can in
; no case do harm to either child or adult: The aged find it a great invigorator.
You can learn more about this time proven and popular "Discovery" from
the People's Common Sense Medical Adviser, by Dr. II. V. Pierce, a newly
revised, up-to-date edition of which is now offered, in cloth covers, post-paid,
for 31 cents in one-cent stamps, to cover cot of wrapping and mailing only.
