Vita Will Build You
It you are nervous, debilitated, and run
down In health, there are two things you
can do to bring back your strength and
vitality. Tou can go to a sanitarium and
take the rest cure or you can secure the
great modern tonic 'Tona Vita" and let

ment for your shattered nerves.
If you knew what wonderful results

since physicians first Introduced it la this
country you would much rather take this
tonic than to go to any sanitarium on
earth. Here Is a statement from Mr. J.
B. House, of 3S1 Twentieth Ave., Mil
waukee, Wis., who has tried "Tona
Vita." "I was all run down, intensely
nervous and suffered with the most
violent headaches. I felt tired and dull
all day, my body seemed benumbed at
times, and I did not sleep well. My di

LINCOLN', Neb., June 13. (Special.)
Joe P. Johnston, inspector of this postal
district, located at Kansas City, addressed
the convention of postmasters today.
Officers elected were:
President J. H. Tower of Sutton.

Many Precautions Taken.
In his address Inspector Johnston said,
! Promoters of schemes to defraud by
use of the mails have been quite active
In this state for some time past and vig
orous steps have been taken to suppress
them. There have been more arrests and
prosecutions of -promoters of fraud
schemes in Nebraska during this fiscal
year than at any time in its history. The
vigorous prosecutions of United States
Attorney Howell and Assistant United
States Attorney Lane are showing re
sults, and unless I am very much mis
taken Nebraska will soon be recognized
as an unhealthy zone for schemers of
Few Defalcation in State.
The number of defalcations chargeable
to postmasters or their employes during
the" last year has beep very small. in
every case the full amount due 4h gov
ernment has been recovered, -I regret
that we still find evidence occasionally
of rendering of false returns of cancella
tions by postmasters at fourth-class
offices, with a view to improperlv in
creasing their compensation. The sums
thus improperly secured are small as a
rule and ultimate detection is almost
an absolute certainty, to be followed by
the reimbursement of the government, the
loss of position and reputation by the
postmaster nd prosecution in the courts.
The postmaster general has recom
mended that the entire postal service be
taken out of politics, stating that "the
full measure of efficiency in the con
duct of the postal service cannot be ex
1 pected so long as the postmasters are
. subject to political control." The presi
; dent has sent three messages to con-
gress urging that postmasters be in
' eluded In the classified service and that
they be appointed under the civil service
! rules. The postmaster general has fol
i lowed the policy of recommending the
reappointment of competent postmasters.
' The records of the department show that
I during the last fiscal year 77 per cent
of the postmasters whose commissions
j expired were reappointed.
Etter Reads Paper.
Postmaster L. F. Etter of South Omaha
read a paper on "Pay of Substitute
Clerks and Carriers." He urged that

The principal address of the afternoon
was by Dr. Murray S. Wlldman of Chi

being, "Measures for the Promotion of a

That the banks in the country had been
somewhaHn evidence in the fixing up of
the postal savings bank law was the con
tention of Mr. Hayes, in his talk. One
objection he had to the system was that
no depositor could be under 10 years
of age.. Another thing he thought was
) wrong was that no depositor could
have more than $500 at one time.
Postmaster Henry Schneider of Platts
niouth said he had discovered a weak
ness In that his bank had experienced
a run, which, though not serious, might
sometime amount to considerable and
that a larger and more accessible emer
gency fund should be provided.

Will Admitted to Probate In 1907

Widow of John Zitnik Sustains
Reversal of Judcment.
(From a Staff 'Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Neb.. June 13.-Speclal.)-The
supreme court of Nebraska has de
cided that the terms of the will of John
A. Crelghton of Omaha will stand wheroln
he provided that $o0,000 should be sot
aside for a home for poor working gir's.
This bequest was made under section 10
of the will, while section 13 provided,
after all other bequests were made, that
the residue and remainder of the estati
should be added to those already named,
proportioned according to their bequests.
This will give the home about JlfiO.OM
The will was admitted to probate Marh
16, 1907, and on October 1 following sev
eral nephews and nieces,, designated as
the unnamed heirs, asked foe a construc
tion on sections 10 and 13 and made the
executors and legatees under the will de
fendants. The county court held that
clause No. 10 was void and incapable of
execution and the executor appealed to
the district court of Douglas county.
The unnamed heirs then filed In dis
trict court a petition for the construction
of clauses 10 and 13 of the will. A peti
tion of intervention In the name of tlx
attorney general of the state was then
filed alleging that section 10 came under
the charity and trust proposition and
was, therefore, of a public nature and
was the right and duty of the attorney
general to appear In the matter.
The case is remanded with direction
to enter a decree distributing the whole
estate to the same legatees and in the
proportion that the specified bequests
were distributed to the beneficiaries
specified in the will, giving to the trus
tees of the charity named In the tenth
clause the one-twenty-third part of the
Judges Barnes and Fawcett do not
concur in the opinion, while Chief
Justice Reese concurs in the dissent.
The court also reversed a Judgment for
t9,m obtained by the widow of John,
Zitnik, a locomotive engineer, who was
killed in the Union Pacific yards In
Omaha. Zitnik was operating a switch
lengine and was cleaning snow from
switches when he was struck by a switch
ei.lne and killed. The district court
found the engineer In no way negligent,
and as the evidence did not show the
company or Its agents negligent the ver
dict Is set aside by the higher court.
