LINCOLN, llarch S1.-(6pcclal.)-Tho
action of ConKressman John A. Magulre
in recommending to the president tho ap
pointment of A. V. Johnson for the Llrf
coin postmaster has raised a rumput In
democratic ranks, as It was supposed to
do, whatever way the appointment went.
According to tho friends of K. V. Brown,
one. of tho candidates, the matter Is not
LOSS OP APPETITE
IN THE SPRING
Ijosb ot appetite is accompanied by
loss of vitality, vigor or tone, which
is a more serious loss. It is common
in the spring because at this time the
blood is impure and impoverished
and falls to give the digestivo organs
what they need 'for the proper per
formance of their functions.
Ask your druggist for Hood's Sar
saparilla. It makes the rich red
blood your wholo system demands. It
is not simply a spring medicine but
it 1b tho best spring medicine.
settled yet and they pin their faith to
Mr. Ilryan as the one who -will goo that
Mr. Brown Rts the Job. They point to the
fact that Mr. Brown has been an anient
supporter of Mr. Hryan ever since, he was
known as "The Hoy Orator of the Tlatte."
so many years aao that It ought to mean
som-thlng. but others point to the record
of Mr. Bryan on loyalty to his friends
and say that the fact that a man has
been loyal to Mr. Hryan does not signify
that Mr. Hryan will also be loyal.
However, as n result, candidates -for
congress are cropping out, and the race
on the democratic ticket In the First dis
trict will bo n sort of free-for-all. Be
sides the congressman himself, who as
serts that his filing will bo made In n
few days, and the announcement of Gov
ernor Morehead that he. too. will file,
also that V. U. Pr.cc will get busy, now
comes the announcement that Will
Mnupln will cast his hat In the ring and
make a try for tho Job. Mnupln Is pre
paling n platform which will be a stem
winder, according to that gentleman him
self. It will be l remembered that Maup'n
claims to have, written tho speeches that
caused the people of the state to elect
Governor Morehead, aft$r the governor
had Inflicted them upon the people, and
he now believes that he could take those
same speeches and pull a few votes for
himself. This makes four entries In tho
race, but the track la wide.

tho discovery that tho organtxatlon,

failed to secure a license for 1913, neither
has It sccurod one for 1914. Just what
t.a will mean In the suit Is not known,
but as there are ather societies Joining
In the suit It will probably not materially
