ten Secretary of State Walt for Instruc
tions rjsardlnsr the method to be ussl In
"curlntr a certificate of election. He
ras ho has written the county clerk of
1-onp oounty for th certificate, but the
clerk Informs him that he has received no
returns from the- other counties In the
district as to the vote polled for repre
jentatlve and therefore Is not In a posi
tion officially to recognise. Mr. Raker ns
the man to whom a certificate Is due.
Mr. Walt has written Mr. Baker that
the law provides that whcie a dlstrlrt
comprises ir.orr than one county the
county clerk of the county first m n
tlor.ed In the law shall be the official
to Issue the certificate of election to the
candidate rerelvlnR the most votes. The
dlstrlrt comprises ' Loup, Mclhers"ii.
Grant. Hooker and Ixjgan and therefore
the tounty clerk of Loup county Is the
cfllccr who Is authorized by law to Issue
a certificate to the representative-elect.
Auditor e. It. Barton has gone to New
Tork to attend the meeting of the state
Insurance auditors of the different states.

alleged murder of nn Infant born to the
latter, were visitors at the office of the
clerk of the supreme court thin morn
Ing and with a microscope were exam

bo blood. It Is claimed by the countv
attorney that the spots were not In the
suitcase at the time the same was placed
In evidence at the trial and that for the
purpose of deceiving the court In an ap
plication for n new trial the spots were
placed In the old suitcase by some par
ti's Interested In a new trial.'
The vital olnt In the controversy Is that
If the child was brought In tho Rultcasa
dead from Omaha to Fremont that Itog
crs could not have been guilty of the
crlmo for It was pred at the trial that
lie had not been In Omaha with the
woman, and therefore would have to bo
cleaned from the penitentiary.

To Sec'rcRittc CoiiNnmntlrr. ,
Governor Colquitt of Texas has written
r letter to Governor Aldrich relative to
a bill which Is to be presented In the
Texas legislature at tho coming session,
which will provide for the establishment
of tuberculosis sanitariums on the gov
ernment reservations In that state. The
call for such action Is based upon the
fact that peoplo afflicted with lung trou
ble have been coming from the northern
states to Texas, with the result that the
1 eople there are becoming alarmed that
danKer may tesult from so large an In
crease In the tuberculosis population and
thpy desire to have some provision made
o that tho?o offllrted may flock by
themselves away from the rest of the
people of the Lone Star state. He asks
the governor of Nebraska to use his In
fluence toward having the government
set aside a portion of the government
reservations and torts for such people.

Peterson Did Not
Write His Own Will
Handwriting experts. In the Sorcn T
Peterson will case declared in county
court that Peterson did not write the will
to which his name Is signed and which
bequeaths 310,000 worth of his property to
his wife, Emma Peterson. This much of
the expert testimony tepded to support
the contentions of helrs-at-law of Peter
son, who are teeklng to break the will
but the experts would not uwear that
Mrs. Peterson, who produced the will In
court, was tho author of It. From their
tostlmony It appears likely that the testa
ment was written by a third person.
Tho experts were bank tellers J. H
Bexton ot the First National, Wallace O.
Shane of the Omaha National and Earl
W. Sherman of the City National.
After studying several letters known
and admitted by both sides to have been
written by Peterson, tho experts ex
amined the will. They were agreed that
It was not Peterson's handwriting. Mrs.
Peterson produced a letter purporting to
have been written by Peterson to her,
in which the writer spoke of Petcrson'3
having bequeathed her 310,000. This let
ter, the experts said, was wrltttn by tho
same hand that wroto the will, but It
was not Peterson's.
After they had examined specimens of
Mrs. Peterson's handwriting the experts
were asked If they believed she wrote
the will and the letter referring to It.
They said they did not believe did,
but they could not be certain about It,

12. There Is positively no Interest
We showed her all the ood points about the piano and explained the
Club plan the best we could, but still she couldn't see it, and like some
other women, she couldn't be convinced. It -wound up by her buying a
Chickering. She paid 5 hundred land 75 dollars for it, 50 dollars cash and
20 dollars a month though she said that the terms of the Club piano (5
dollars cash and a dollar and a quarter a week) would have suited her much
better just at this time.
1F Now, we tell this incident "because it has a moral; because many more
persons may be in the same frame of mind.
m The moral of the incident is this: that that lady could have joined the
Orkin Brothers Piano Club and if, as she said, the Club terms best suited
her just now, she should have done so, and we will tell you why.
SF She would not1 have taken a chance of any kind in joining the club.
!F In the first place; if she had desired it, we would, within thirty days, have
given her money back. In the second place, she would have had a whole
year to have tried the Club piano. If the year's trial of the piano was not satisfactory she
could then have gotten the Chickering and had all her Club payments transferred to the Chick
ering without the loss of a single penny.
pn other words, according to our written agreement, she
could have joined the Orkin Brothers Piano Club; gotten her
piano; paid only 5 dollars down and 1 dollar and 25 cents a
week for a whole year (which she said would have best
suited her,) and at the end of the year gotten a Chickering,
had her club money transferred to her credit on the Kurtz
man, Chickering, Ivers & Pond or some other well known
make we handle, and then begun her payments of 20 dol
lars a month. By doing this, don't you see, she would have
a whole year of the easiest kind of payments on the club
plan, had the use of the club piano a whole year for abso
lutely nothing and a year hence had a brand new Chick
ering in her home instead of one a year old.
See the point?
As we said above, we tell this story, thinking that there
might be others in the same frame of mind.
