which showed that Instead of Thomas 11.
Matters being Indebted to tho bank, tho
bank Instead owed Matters sums In the
aggregate of moro than $20,00).
The affidavit filed In connection with
tho findings of the accountant shows that
the books of tho bank were Improperly

that Mattesr called him up and eported
the deposit of $2,600 In the Merchants Na
tional bank of Omaha to the credit ot
the Sutton bank.

tho Matters account, wero not correctly
or accurately kept and that any credits
due Mr. Ma' ,ers were entirely omitted
from the account and that these aggre
gated many thousands of dollars during
tho nerlod under consideration. Also,
aftlant says that a large number of
charges were entered Into Matters' ac
count Improperly and fraudulently and
that these aggregate many thousands of

affiant and purporting to be an exact
copy of the Matters account showed over
drafts of $490.00, when In fact a correction
of the erroneous charges and prffper

a large balance In favor ot Thomas 11.

Good News for Sufferers From
The kidneys from their delicate non
structlon and the filtering work required
of them, are more susceptible to disease
than any other organ in the wonderful
machinery of the human body. The most
deplorable feature of kidney disease con
sists in Its subtle and delusive character,
and so Insidious are Its ravages that
many victims do not even suspect its rx
Istence until the advanced stages have
been reached. Few people, after reach
ing the period of maturity, are in posses
sion ot absolutely healthy kidneys; It
follows that the greatest care and vigi
lance must be exercised to keep these
organs free from the dangers that con
stantly beset them.
Since the discovery of Warner's Safe
Kidney and Liver Remedy about 37 years
ago, many sufferers from kidney diseases
