Blue Serge is the most popular suit fabric
and True Blue the best blue serge
The popularity of Blue Serge aeema to never wane. There are many reasons. The popular-
Hy of True Bluea la easily explained. ' They're the beat made. Absolutely fadeless, finely
woven, of good weight and the Garments are shape retaining. Cost small when you consider
their high auallty 10.00 to $35.00.
Look at the Spring Suits of fancy weave -we've
gathered together for your choosing
Every popular fabric and every color that a good dreaaer would consider. Every model that

(Prom a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. March l.-8paclal.)-The
February statement of State Treasurer
Ueorf shows there Is a considerable de
crease In tbe amount of cash in the gen
eral fund as compared with the balance
carried over from January, in spite of re
ceipts of IZlt.".M during the month. Thle
Is due to the payment of general fund
warrants which hare been reentered tot
lack of funds to pay them previous to
February, the balance now bring 117.
t.. against 1131.303.31 at the beginning
of the month.
.The temporary school fund shows a de
cided Increase, owing to the payment of
interest on bonds and' lease money on
school lands. Tha school fund la also
carrying tut an. B of university warrants.
General fund warrants have all been
paid, though unless remittances ' from
county treasurers came In mora rapidly
than expected the treasurer will be forced
te take them up with school Investment
funds. There Is enough of this cash la
sight, however, te guard against the war
rants being allowed to go Into the hands
of the general nubile. ,
' Ask Aid tor- Bridge.
A delegation of Boyd Bounty ' citizens
headed by Attorney Dickson appeared
before the Board of Irrigation today to
aee what could be done about the state
aid bridge contemplated over the Nio
brara river south of Butte In Boyd
bhumv. The river st this point la theJ
Una between Holt and Boyd counties and
both counties applied, through the proper
authorities, for state aid for a bridge.
By the time Engineer Price had prepared
the plans tbe personnel' of the Holt
county board had changed and the new
board decided It dm not want a bridge
at-the point selected, and really did not
care to hare one at aU. Boyd county
now wants te knew If there la any way
by which Holt county can be. compelled
te comply with the original plan and
appropriate Ha share' for' the elate aid
bridge. 'The Board of Irrigation Informed
the delegation that if they wanted the
bridge the two counties must get to
gether, aa there were plenty of other ap
plicant! tor all tbe funds at tbe disposal
of tha board and they did "not feel dis
posed to force aid on any county, even
If they had the authority to do so. which
they did net hare. Toe Boyd county
men were therefore Informed It there was
any litigation it would have to be be
tween the counties' themselves. . ,

One peculiar feature oeroes up In con
nection with tbe Union Padfle right-of-way
.and-the ratio of actual .value te
railroad valuation by reason ef severance
cost. --The Union Pacine . right-of-way
Is claimed by tha company to be
feet wide, while ether roads have 'orgy
m feet. The eta le held a that to multiply
the vslue or feet by the same figures
aa the narrower right-of-way . Irt order
to ascertain the severance value would
be wrong, ss the damages, or. cost of
sevsranee - would be the aame .actual
amount whether tbe atrip taken was
one foot or e feet and ts determined
by the fact of segratlon rather than the
amount taken, r On the entire rtght?of
way of the .Union Pacific the difference
In the multiple claimed by. tbe. company
and the- state .Would be a? substantial
Sum. . ..-;..( . .

The supreme court, la tbe ease of Ida

ance company ef New York decided an
Important point of Insurance law whsn
It reversed the findings of the lower court
and sent the case back for another hear
ing. In effect the court holds that the
Nebraska lew, and not the law of ths
home ' state of tbe Insurance eompnay,
governs la policies Issued to residents of
this state. Ths New Tork law provides
for the, forfeiture of a policy for non
payment of premiums, but the plaintiff
asserted there was accumulated reserve
sufficient to pay ths premiums from the
time ths Insured ceased psyment until
his desth and that this automatically
continued the policy In force. The su
preme court upholds the plaintiffs con
tention as te the law and that - is a fact
for- tha jury te decide whether there was
sufficient accumulated reserve to pay the
premiums up to ths tlms the policyholder
