GENERAL LAW PRACTICE
A better From Southern
Many of our readers who are ac
quainted with Dr. Seymour , the
; eye specialist , who has made reg
ular trips through this state for so
many years , will be interested in a
letter we have recently received
from him from Southern California.
Those who know the doctor per
sonally are aware that he is not in
robust health and it will not be
surprising that Chicago climate was
too seyere on him during the past
' rwinter , from a health standpoint ,
and in the interests of his family
he was strongly advised to seek a
milder climate , which he has done.
In the following letter he express
es his pleasure and gratification in
California , and Los Angeles in par
ticular , as a city in which to estab
lish a home , as well as mentioning
the wonderful advantages to be de
rived there from a business stand
Los Angeles , Cal. Aug. 26,1903.
From the U. S. statistics Los
Angeles has grown faster in the
past ten years than any other city
in the United States , and now far
surpasses Omaha in size and met
ropolitan advantages. It promises
to equal San Francisco in a very
few years as to size and import
ance. Los Angeles enjoys many
advantages that are hardly equaled ,
and not surpassed elsewhere in the
United States , being situated some
twenty miles back from the sea
coast in a beautiful valley protect
ed by mountains on each side , and
has over three hundred days of
sunshine every year. Although
situated much farther south than
Nebraska , hot weather such as you
have there is practically unknown
here. As for hot nights , they are
also entirely unknown here , having
slept under a blanket and quilt ev
ery night since I have been in the
state. "While I am of course , en
thusiastic from a personal stand
point , I do not wish to make the
common mistake of seeing only the
pleasant side as everyone knows
there must be some disadvantages
in all climates , and the one that
strikes a stranger the most forcibly
on coming here is the dusty ap
pearance of the trees , houses , and
in fact every object which is not
subject to irrigation , or watered
by hand. As you know , there is
absolutely no rain from early in
the spring until late in the fall , and
naturally the dust and heat make
the leaves of the trees look grimy
for a month or two , even though
they are perfectly green under the
dust. This and the sand fleas have
been the bane our existence in
what , otherwise , seems to me the
nearest an ideal climate of any I
have ever visited.
I will return to Nebraska on my
usual visit , and shall be pleased to
see and talk with anyone who may
read these letters , if they are inter
ested in this country.
* Yours truly ,
JPenbrooh Qnills *

primary work , which she has done ,
but from everyone in attendance come
forth the same expressions of genuine
satisfaction , and may she rest assured
that upon the lives of the chilcren of
Northern Nebraska will be stamped
the example of her life and herOmeth
ods of teaching.
RESOLVED , That we extend our sin
cere thanks to the trustees of the M.
E. church for the free use of their
church for chapel exercises , enter
tainments , lectures and music , and be
RESOLVED , That we tender this sin
cere expression of our gratitude to
the citizens of Valentine for their
kindness and hospitality. Never have
people more cordially opened their
homes , their churches and places of
amusement than have these people to
us , and never were strangers made to
feel so much at home in a strange
3lace. The individual efforts of each
who has striven to add to our pleasure ,
the receptions and entertainments
given to us so many times will never
ie forgotten. It is au interesting fact
deserving much emphasis of state
ment that the members of the school
never enjoyed a more harmonious and
profitable summer with the people of

normal with the citizens of Valentine.
RESOLVED , That the county super-
ntendents represented in this junior
normal deserve much credit for all
they have done to assist the students
of the several counties and all the
vork dm ing the entire season.
RESOLVED , That Miss Zaida Elliott
las proven herself an efficient accom
) anistas well as an able and courteous
assistant in the musical department
of the normal.
TEACHERS , A powerful influence is
jeing used in Nebraska to strengthen
our educational organization , and let
us resolve that our work this year will
be such , that when June 1904 comes
ve will return two hundred strong to
renew our school and social relations
with the same faculty and the same

If your liver does not act reg
ularly go to your druggist and
secure a package of Thedford'a
Black-Draught and take a dose
tonight. This great family
medicine frees the constipated
howels , stirs up the torpid liver
and causes a healthy secretion
Thedford's Black - Draught
will cleanse the bowels of im
purities and strengthen the kid
neys. A torpid liver invites
colds , biliousness , chills and
fever and all manner of sick
ness and contagion. Weak kid
neys result in Bright's" disease _
which claims as many victims
as consumption. A 25-cent
package of Thedford's Black-
Draught should always be kept
in the house.
