CLEAN THE BLOOD
Tdfcen roro Nature The vrfld root and barks that go into the
imposition of one of the oldest and best known; blood tonics are
mostly gathered by the Indiana on our reservations brought or
shipped to' Dr. Pierce's Laboratory in Buffalo, N. Y. Over fifty
years ago Dr. Pierce put up an alterative tonic without the use of
dcohol that soon became known all over the world.
The spring is the time of the year we should putour house in
order. We're run down after a hard winter after grippe, colds,
; catarrh. It's time to take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery,
.purely vegetable and free from alcohol or narcotics. It will search
out impure and poisonous matter and drive it from the system. Buy
it now in tablets or liquid.
It will clear the skin; eczema, pimples, rash, blotches will dry up
and disappear; boik, carbuncles and other evidences of tainted blood
will pass away, never to appear again.
Dr. Pierce discovered 50 years ago, that Nature has provided
freely for these needs of her children and that in her laboratory were
the remedies. Extracts of Queen's root, Stone root, Black Cherry
bark and Bloodroot, as prepared, combined and preserved without
a'cotul, in Dr. Pierce' sVolden Medical Discovery, constitute the most
effective and certain tonic, alterative and tissue-rebuilding remedy
ver offered to the public. .

County Attorney Vetoes Pro
, cedure of Board In Select
ing Route of Proposed .
County Attorney Shotwell shot a
bombshell into the meeting of the
board of county commissioners and
delegations of paving-seekers yester
day when he gave us opinion that
the petition and proclamation which
must precede the special election on
the $3,000,000 paving bonds cannot
contain any designation of the coun
ty roads to be paved.
This is exactly the opposite of
what the county commissioners,
Chamber of Commerce, Automobile
club, Rotary club, Real Estate board
and others interested in having the
paving done thought was neces
sary. s "v
These bodies toiled hard for
months to agree on the roads to be
paved with the $3,000,000.
Agree on Roads.
Last Saturday there was a mass
meeting and, after some turmoil
the roads were designated sand
adopted by a large vote, the com
missioners and others who had been
toiling heaved great sighs of relief.
Now, according to-the county at
torney's opinion, all that labor was
The county attorney based his
opinion on a decision handed down
by the Nebraska supreme court last
January in a case from Platte
county in which a suit was brought
to enjoin issue of bonds to build i a
new county court house. The reason
advanced for the injunction was
that in the bond election the loca
tion of the court house was desig
nated. The, supreme court held that the
power to designate the location of
the court house is vested iiv the
county commissioners' and that
when the location was named in the
petition for the election to vote the
bonds, this power was taken from
the commissioners contrary to law.
I Mr. Shotwell says this was a paral-
iei case wun ine proposed special
election for bonds to pave Douglas
Board Likes Decision. -
The county commissioners believe
that' this decision will clear the sit
uation on the $3,000,000 bond issue
and make sure that they will carry
by the necessary three-fifths vote.
If all the roads were designated
in the proclamation, nearly every
farmer whose farm was not reached
by paving was ready to vote against
the bonds. With no roads desig
nated, every farmer will vote for the
bonds in the hope of getting paving,
it is believed.
A delegation of citizens of Saun
ders county from Yutan, Meade and
Wahoo-visited the commissioners
and assured them that they "are go
ing to have a bridge over the Platte
river," preferably on the Center
This is an absolute necessity, they
said, to Omaha as well as to Saun

'Peggy' Sellers Loses 'Suit
Against Her Alleged 'Daddy '
Municipal Judge Hands Down Judgment of $237.34 In,
Favor of Elderly Business Man, Who Sued Young.
Married Woman for Nearly Thousand Dollars.
Judge Holmes in municipal court
yesterday afternoon handed down a
lodgement of $237.34 in favor of
George C. Chrisman who brought an
action for $816.44 against "Peggy"
Sellers, and the judge announced
that Peggy's counterclain for $2,500
was not sustained by the evidence.
The. judgment entered in favor
of Chrisman represents three hotel
bills made out to Peggy" and paid
for by Chrisman.
"The other items specified in the
Chrisman claim," the court stated,
"were not identified by times and
places except the $100 paid by Chris
man to Mrs. Sellers on February 22,
and she claimed that the money was
paid for two kisses. On that point 1
would say that Mr. Chrisman is a
better judge than I am to state
whether the kisses were worth $100."
Amount Not Allowed.
The court, however, was inclined
to believe that the $100 was paid
for the kisses and he did not allow
this amount in Chrisman's claim.
During the week before Easter
Sunday Chrisman went into mu
nicipal court and obtained a writ of
attachment against Peggy's per
sonal effects, based on an alleged
claim of $816.44, said to have been
items of money advanced by Chris
man during a period " of several
months. Chrisman, who is a 62-year-old
business man, contended
that Peggy promised to repay him
the money; that she claimed to have,
had a rich father and that she was
going to receive money from home
and commissions for oH land leases
she had sold.
Tells of Kisses.
The 19-year-old bride on the wit
ness stand testified that one of the
items of $100 claimed by Chrisman
was , paid to her on Washington's
birthday of this year, for two of her
best kisses implanted on Chrisman's
cheeks, with his full knowledge and
with an understanding that she was

When Council Acts.
"This is a deep-dyed conspiracy
on the part of my enemies," re
marked Mayor Smith during city
council yesterday, when City
Commissioner Ure introduced an
ordinance covering the operations of
the new municipal public market and
assigning to the mayor's department
the duties pertaining thereto.
The mayor believes' that he is a
marked man, to thus have this mar
ket house wished on him.
The ordinance provides that fruits,
vegetatbles, garden truck and farm
produce trtay be sold in - wholesale
and retail quantities; but that canned
goods, teas, coffees, notions, or simi
lar commodities handled in grocery
and mercantile, houses shall not be
offered for sale.
The municipal retail market prop
er' will be established in the base
ment of the City Auditorium and a
curb market will be established in
streets near the Auditorium. A mar
ket tone witl be declared between
Tenth and Fourteenth streets, from
Jackson to Harney streets. I
