Wells Are Struck on
Farms Near Tecumseh
Tecumseh. Neb.- Aoril 4. (Spe
cial.) Efforts to secure an artesian
well near Tecmseh seem to be futile,
though within the past few weeks
fine wells have been developed in
the St. Mary neighborhood, nine
miles away, and a first-class flowing
well on the farm of J. A. McPherrin,
four and one-half miles northwest of
Business men sunk a well near the
old agriculture house in the fair
grounds, just w est of the city limits.
At a depth of 40 feet solid rock was
struck and this project was aban
doned. The drill was then moved
west across the old channel of the
Nemaha river a few hundred feet,
into the Lerhpka pasture. At a depth
of 47 feet solid rock was struck and
the' work abandoned.
The artesian wells of the county
have been struck at depths from 90 to
120 feet. Years ago a number of
these wells were developed in the
northern part of the county, near
the town of Cook, and it was
thought they could not be struck
outside of a certain limited section.
However, the finding of the fine
wells near St. Mary a few weeks
ago exploded this theory. Farmers
northwest of the city, between the
locations of the present drilling here
and the McPherrin farm, will en
deavor to develop these wells.

Lion Bonding Co.
To Reinsure All
Is Negotiating Contract With
Western' Concern Plie-.
nonrenal Growth of Com
The Lion Bonding and Surety
company of Omaha, one of the
largest general bonding companies
west of Chicago, is negotiating a con
tract for the reinsurance of its entire
liabilities with another western con
cern. Comoletion of the deal depends on
a check now being made by auditors
of the second company.
"The deal was made on the basis
of an examination just finished by
state insurance departments of seven
states, said E. K. Gurney, president
of the Lion. "This examination was
very thorough and there is no likeli
hood that it will not stand up under
the second scrutiny."
To Clear Situation.
The reinsurance contract, if car
ried out, will clear a situation which
has been troubling insurance circles
for several months. The Lion com
pany, due to an increase of business
from annual premiums of $700,000
to over $2,000,000 in a single year,
became embarrassed by inability to
satisfy state examiners as to its abil
ity to take care of a large amount of
claims, lliese aggregated 1,WU,U(JU
on their face.
'No company ever has to pay full
face value of pending claims and we
believed our assets sufficient to take
care of all risks," said President Gur
ney. "Under the rule of the various
states, however, we were not allowed
to take advantage of this margin and
therefore we were technically in
poor condition." .
Capitalized at $300,000.
Mi-. Gurney announced that, under
the proposed re-insurance contract,
the Lion Bonding and Surety com
pany will continue its office in Oma
ha and can write new business. , The
pending contract is for re-insurance
of its liabilities and' does not include
the sale of its charter. Mr. Gurney
is to remain president of tlje com
pany, he said.
The Lion Bonding and Surety
company is capitalized at. $300,000.
This was its capitalization prior to
1917. At that time the capital was
increased to $600,000. When the
company's condition became some
what involved a few months ago the
capital stock was again cut to $300,
000, the balance being thrown into
its surplus account.
The company's growth during the
year 1920 was phenomenal. Its busi
ness tripled and its activities spread
into new territory. This very exten

I have made my campaign for City Commissioner on a plat
form in which I claimed that the interests of the majority
should be considered paramount to the interests of any indi
vidual or clique. I do not belong to any clique or faction and
I am not willingly or knowingly on any so-called "slate."
In this, my last appeal to the voters of our city, I ask that
each and everyone cast their vote for seven (7) men whom
they are sure will work for the best interests of our city. I
now repeat the promise made to many of the voters that "If
nominated and elected, I will make ah honest effort to give
Omaha a good, clean, business-like administration." I do not
believe that any candidate should receive the nomination simply
because he believes in law and order alone, or because he is
aligned with some religious or political faction or because he
says that some organized gang is against him. I believe that
the people of Omaha are more interested in good, clean, honest,
capable and progressive government than they are in the per
sonal ambition of any particular candidate who would willingly
sacrifice everything to further his own interests.
I, thank you, fellow citizens, for your co-operation during
my campaign and for your assistance tomorrow.
Youn very truly,
CHARLES W. PIPKIN.

Dr. Edwards Olive Tablets
are a Harmless Substitute
Pr. Edwards' Olive Tablets the sub
stitute for calomel are a mild but sure
laxative, and their cflect on the liver is
almost instantaneous. These little olrvc
rolored tablets are th result of Dr.
Edwards' determination not to treat
liver and bowel complaints with calomel.
The pleasant little tablets do the
good that calomel docs, but have no
bad after effects. They don't injure the
teeth like strong liquids or calomel.
They lake hold of the trouble and
quickly correct it Why cure the liver
at the expense of the teeth? Calomel
sometimes clays havoc with the gums.
So do strong liquids. It is best not to
take calomel. Let Dr. Edwards' Olive
Tablets take its place.
Headaches, "dullness," and that lazy
feeling come from constipation and a
disordered liver. Take Dr Edwarda'
Olive Tablets when you feel "logy"anc"
