MOREHEAD GOES TO FARM
(From a Staff Correapondant.)
Lincoln, July 15. (Special.) The
State Railway commission has gone
into the newspaper business. With
two newspaper men connected with
the commission, Commissioner Tay
lor and Secretary Browne, it was sure
to crop out sometime and so the peo
ple of Nebraska are going to be given
an opportunity to keep in touch with
the work of the commission by a
monthly publication which will give
the complete work of the commission
for the month and articles on the
different things which come up.
The first issue came out today and
is called the "Railway Commission
Bulletin." Articles on the "Rate Ex
pert's Force," "Blue Sky Department"
and editorial on why the Bulletin is
issued; "Troubles of Engineering Ex
perts," and a complete record of the
doings of the commission for the
month, cover the first edition with
numerous items of a minor nature.
Water Supply Low.
The dry weather of the last few
weeks again brings forward the ques
tion of the water supply at the state
penitentiary. The supply is getting
short, but the Board of Control has
not yet determined whether it is due
to the lack of water or the ability of
the pump to gather it in.
An investigation will be made at
once and an attempt made to remedy
Morehead in Richardson.
Governor Morehead is in Richard
son county looking after the harvest
on his farms. On account of the
cinch bugs and other little inconven
iences down there last year, the gov
ernor did not go into the wheat rais
ing game very heavily this year, but
has confined the most of his efforts
toward a corn crop, with prospects of
good returns with the present out
look. American Is Fined

London, July 15. Major R. M. Dut
ton, United States marines, retired,

mission for the relief of Belgium,
wa9 fined 500 marks recently by a
Germany military tribunal in Brussels.
A press dispatch received here says
the nature of Major Dutton's offense
is not known, but that the fine was
imposed for "disrespectful conduct"
toward a German officer.
.' At the office of the Belgian com
mission here it was stated that Major
Dutton was lined after his automobile
had frightened a German officer's
horse. No miportance' was attached
to the incident by representatives of

Central City at the
Age of 101 Years
Central City, Neb., July 15. (Spe
rial Mis. Marv Porter passed away
at the home of her son, William Por
ter, Thursday evening, at the age cf
101 vears. Death was due to ailments
attending old age, and for some time
her condition has been regarded as
Mrs. Mary Porter was born No
vember 19, 1814, at Cincinnati, O.
She grew to womanhood at that place
and at 20 years of age was married
to Stephen Porter. In 1835 they re
moved to Mason county, Illinois, then
a new country. To this union seven
children were born, of whom three
survive, William Porter of this city,
with whom she made her home; Mrs.
Elvira Newcomer of this city, and
Charles Porter of Fullerton, Neb.
When the war of the rebellion broke
out, her husband and three sons en
listed in the service. One son never
returned from thes truggle. They re
moved to Nebraska in 1877 and took
up a homestead in Merrick county.
Mr. Porter passed away May 29, 1882.
Ten years later the wife of her son,
William, died, leaving six children,
the eldest of whom was only 10 years
of age. These Mrs. Porter took in
charge and raised with practically no
help. She was a member of the Meth
odist church, having been associated
with it since her fifteenth birthday.
Mrs. Porter was the oldest resident
of this county, and until a short time
preceding her death was very active
in mind and body. Each year her
birthday was observed by a family
reunion. Prior to her death there
were living five generations of the
Porter family. She had sixteen grand
children, sixteen great-grai.dchildren
and one great-great-grandchild.
The funeral was held from the
home this afternoon at 1:30 o'clock.

Making life Easier
The man or woman who is under par in health has a
.hard time of it. One is unfitted to make the best of life,
to do his work well, and to enjoy his leisure if his system
is clogged, his body full of stagnation, which is catarrh,
and his physical stamina weaKenea cy aigesuve vruuuieo.

This household remedy rests its claim on its
merit and its record. The thousands who have
built up their strength, cleared their systems of
catarrh, and restored irreeular appetite through
its use are its best evidence. A tested pre
scription, compounded scientifically, that has
met with enormous success, its usefulness in
catarrhal conditions and as a tonic is not ques

In tablet form, it has been found
most convenient, though many find
its liquid form very satisfactory.

THE PERUNA COMPANY,
I. W. W.'s on Their Way West
Refuse to Work in Fields
Alma, Neb., July 15. (Special.)
A band of Industrial Workers of the
World has been moving westward
this week. Yesterday freight train
No. 63 was apparently in charge of the
"boes," there being eighty-five on
board and the same train, today, car
ried 150. During the stop of the
freight, the depot was decorated by
the bunch with their emblems. About
a dozen deserted the train here and
took to the harvest fields.
The farmers are begging for help to
harvest and put up alfalfa, but these
so-called industrial workers are so un
reasonable in their demands for
wages, board and short hours that
they are of no help to the busy tillers
of the soil.
