Plan of Readjustment Recom

. , uThe plan of readjustment prepared
by the committee of the Xebrask:
League of Modern Woodmen, the ses
sions of which were noted at the time
they were held in this city during the
latter part of September, has been
made public and copies of it have
been received at the head office. It
was prepared to submit to the next
head camp as a substitute for th?
plan prepared by the regular read
justment committee appointed at the
last head camp.
The Nebraska committee was a
pointed to bring out a plan whose
rates should be lower than those pro
posed by the readjustment committee
and the members were at the outset
individually of the opinion that a
lower system of rsttes would suffice
to insure the perpetuity of the order.
After several weeks of close investi
gation of the experience of fraterna'
insurance societies the members saw
that the rates that had been propos
ed were little, if any, too high to be
adequate, and they have finally
brought in a plan for revision that is
almost as radical as that which the
regular committee deemed necessary.
The report of the Nebraska mem
bers is short, comprising but little
over three typewritten pages, and
but one lable is presented. Although
brief it is comprehensive'1 and pro
vides for features that are not un
likely to meet with favorable consid
eration at the Indianapolis head
Need of Readjustment Recognized!
The difference of the Nebraska

and the necessity for tome sort of re
vision is fully concurred in, but the
report ; states that the general plan
ottered is not.
Three propositions are laid down as
being applicable to all fraternal in
surance societies: First, the purpose
of fraternal beneficiary insurance
should be to furnish life protection
and not speculation on investment in
surance. Second, life protection has
an actual cost determined by the age
of the member. Third, each member
should be required to pay the actual
cost of his insurance.
The table provides for the collec
tion of 12 payments a year, beginning
with 00 cents an assessment for mem
bers between the ages of 18 nnd 231,
and increasing at the end of each five
years as the member grows older up
to 45. There the assessment is $1.40.
From that time on the increase is
made annually, ending with $2.50 at
60 years, after which there is no in
crease. Assessments are to be made
at this rate till the fund collected
shall equal the contract liability of
the order, when the assessments shall
be made only often enough to keep
the fund up to that state. It is also
proposed to scale down the face of
the certificates of members dying
within three years.
Feature of Plan
Perhaps the most important feature
of the plan is a method of transition
from the old to the new rates that is
proposed. In recognition of the fact
that many of the members prefer the
present plan of rates it is provided
that the society be divided into two
classes, cue composed of those who
wish to pay the new rates and the
other who wish to continue to pay as
many assessments as are necessary
under the plan now in force. At an
time up to the year 1010 a member
wishing to change from one class to
the other may do so provided he has
paid up all dues in the class he pro
poses leaving. The funds and ac
counts of the two classes are to be
kept entirely separate. After 1010
there Is to be no transfer, the com
mittee evidently assuming that the
assessments under the present plan
will by that time have risen to a point
where the new plan will be the cheap
er of the two and the members will
all accordingly be willing to pay the
The membership statement for the

that two months have elapsed since

skipping of an assessment and on ac
count of the falling off in the number
of new members nnd an increase ir
the number of lapsations expected by
senile to result from the efforts that
are now being made to secure a re
vision of the rates.
To the surprise of those who have
expected ill consequences to bo
strongly manifested the figures for
the past two months show a very
healthy number of members nnd of
new camps. What is still more im
portant, there is also a great falling
off in the number of lapsations.
During October the total number of
lapsations was 7,741 and 5.2o7 mem
bers were reinstated, giving 2,527 net
lapses. The total membership of the
order at the end of October was ff7,

readjustment was finishing its work
nnd immediately after its report was
made public there were many with
drawals from the society. During
July the number reached 8,931 nnd the

fallen off considerably in August, but
was still above the normal. The rate

Springfield Anxious for a Berth
in Three-I Baseball
PRESIDENT SEXTON AT MEETING
City Must Await Outcome or St.
Lioul- Gathering Donnelly's
President M. H. Sexton, of the
Three-I league, returned this morn
ing from Springfield, where he went
to attend a meeting of the baseball
enthusiasts held Tuesday evening for
the purpose of working up a move
ment to get into the league.
Mr. Sexton found the baseball sen
timent all that could be asked for.
The meeting was attended by about
one hundred of the representative
citizens of the capital and all agreed
that a franchise in the Three-I would
be a most desirable thing. The city
has not had professional ball for 10
years and the fans seem really hun
gry for the national game.
Mr. Sexton explained the conditions
and informed the meeting that, while
there is no franchise on the market
ait present and he as an individual
had nothing to offer, the outcome of
the annual meeting at St. louis is
entirely n matter of speculation and
if Springfield is represented in the
right way on that occasion the city
may rest assured of being taken into

Mr. Sexton saw Manager Frank
Donnelly, who assured him that he
had the Rock Island team for the
season of 1003 practically signed. The
salaries, he said, are within the $!O0
limit, and he feels safe in saying that
he has a team as good as any city in
the league will get, provided salaries
nre kept down as specified in the rules
of the league. Of course it would be
impolitic to make the names of the
members public at the present time
in view of the unsettled condition of
affairs between the different leagues.

A child of Mrs. George T. Henson,
when getting his usual Sunday night
bath, stepped back against a hot
stove which burned him severely.
The child was in great agony nnd his
mother could do nothing to pacify
him. Remembering that she had a
bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Palm in
the house, she thought she would tr3'

applying it the child was quiet and

Of a New Catarrh Care.
A large and constantly increasing
majority of the American people are
catarrh sufferers. This is not entire
ly the result of our changeable cli
mate, but because modern investiga
tion has clearly proven that many
diseases, known by other names, are
really catarrh. Formerly the name
catarrh was applied almost exclusive
ly to the common nasal catarrh, but
the throat, stojnach, liver, bladder,
kidneys and intestines are subject to
catarrhal diseases as well as the na
' In fact, wherever there is mucous
membrane there, is a feeding ground
The usual remedies, inhalers, sprays,
douches or powders, have been prac
tically failures, as far as anything
more than temporary relief Mas con
cerned, because they simply dry up
the mucous secretions without hav
ing the remotest effect upon the
blood and liver, which are the real
sources of catarrhal diseases.
It has been known for some years
that the radical cure of catarrh could
never come from local applications,
but from an internal remedy, acting
on the blood and expelling the ca
tarrhal poison .mm the system.
A new internal preparation which
has been on the market only a short
time, has met with remarkable suc
cess as a genuine, radical cure for ca
tarrh. It may be found in any drug store,
sold under the name of Stuart's Ca
tarrh Tablets, large pleasant tasting
lozenges, composed principally of
antiseptic ingredients, blood root,
red gum and similar catarrh spe
.cifics. Dr. Ainslee in speaking of the new
catarrh cure says: "I have tried the
new cat arh remedy, Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets, upon thirty or forty patients
with remarkable satisfactory results.
They clear the head and .throat more
effectually and lastingly than any
douche or inhaler that 1 have ever
seen, and although they are what is
called a patent medicine and sold by
druggists, 1 do not hesitate to rec-
comiiieml them as 1 know them to be
free from cocaine and opiates, and
that even a little child mav use them
with entire safety."
Aiiy . sufferer from nasal catarrh,
throat or bronchial trouble, catarrh
of the stomach, liver or bladder will
find Stuart's Catarrh Tablets remark
ably effective, pleasant and conveni
cut, and your druggist will tell you
they are absolutely free from any in
