Another Pioneer Gone.
Death of Rufus T. Rainey. Rufus T. Raincy, one of the oldest settlers of Nemaha county, died at his home in Brownvilleat G o'clock p. m. Sunday, June M, 1908, from paralysis. Mr. Raincy had been living alone for some time, in his beau tiful home two blocks south of the business part of town. Sat- J urday, about one o'clock, one of his neighbors wondered why Mr. Raincy had not been seen about the yards, and went over to his place to see if he was at home, lie was found in an outbuilding, helpless from a stroke of paraly sis. He was not entirely uncon scious, and managed to tell them that he had received the stroke of paralysis about two o'clock Friday afternoon, and had lain there for twenty-three hours. He had called as well as he could, and beat on the side of the build ing, but could not make noise enough to attract the attention of any one. He was carried to the house and physicians called, but nothing could be done except to make him as comfortable as pos sible. He lingered until Sunday eveningr. Rufus T. Raincy was born Jan uary 31, 1833, and at his death was 75 years, 4 months and 14 days old. He came to Nebraska in 1855, and in 1858 was united to the wife who was his faithful companion until her death about six years rgo. Mr. Rainey made his home in Brownville frcm the time he came to the state until his death, with the exception of about a year when he was a resi dent of the Republican valley. He was in business much of the time, although in early days he followed freighting for awhile. He was postmaster at Brown ville for four years, deputy coun ty treasurer for four years, and held other positions of honor. Mr. Rainey was a member of the Presbyterian church, having joined in 1876. He was a good man and highly respected. Mr. Rainey had been a mem ber of Nemaha Valley Lodge, No, 4, A. F. & A. M., having been a member of that lodge over fifty years. He was the first man initiated after its organiza tion. The funeral services were held at the Methodist church at two o'clock p. m. Wednesday. Rev. G. W. Ayers preached the ser mon. The music was especially good. Besides the singing by the choir there was a duet by D. S. Weimer and daughter, Miss Jessie Weimer, and a solo by Miss Perle Minick. The Ma sonic lodge had charge at the cemetery. Mr. Rainey leaves four sons to mourn the loss of a loving fath er J. D. of Auburn, II. E. of Denver, Frank of Lead, South Dakota, and Ralph of Omaha. All were present at the funeral services. Miss Nora Aynes, who hss been visiting her sister, Mrs. F. K. Skeen, near Ord, Nebr., for several weeks, returned home Thursday evening. Mr. and Mrs. F. B. Lowe came in from DeWitt last Saturday. They will probably spend most of the summer in Nemaha. Weak women should try Dr. Shoop's Night cure.

(Continued From Lust Week) The Moro wears hardly any clothes at, all. I have saw them come through the post without anything on going to market They smell about like a skunk; only get a bunch together and you will soon move; it is a fact you can smell them twenty feet. They all chow bettle nut for to bacco, it makes the teeth us black as coal. When the women want to get married they paint their lips red, and the men paint their fingernails red; but I am color blind and am in no danger at all. All the moros on this side of the lake are fugaree, or friends, but you cannot trust them behind your back, several of the dattos hero are secret service men for tho government; but when you go across tho lake you will got a light, for they are bad Umbries over there. We were across the other day with some nigger scouts that are stationed across the river. but did not see much service, firing a few shots; about twenty moros were killed. I do not know how many were wounded for you can never find any but what are dead. They only stand for about two or threo volleys then you have to run them. It is lots of fun to got a nigger on th end of an eighteen inch bay ouet and watch him kick, tho tir,st thing he does is to take hold of the gun barrel. One fel low right by my side was mixed iip with a nigger who had a bolo about four feet long, and say, ho could swing that knife to a fraz zle but the kid was too much for him, he ran under his bolo and stuck his bayonet into him, wasn't satisfied with this so ho just throwed a shell into his gun and pulled it off, tearing a hole in that umbrio that you could put your fist in, ho had his bul let dutned, a cross filed in the nose of it. Each company has heir turn of going across the ake, I will be glad when we go over again for it is lots of fun tnd a fellow gets tired of stay ng in camp all the timo. Tho civil governor always calls the datto in and tells him to bo good or he will send the troops out after him and "if the nigger isn't good out you go and there is always some fun. The constabulary kill more than any one else, thoy are moros them selves and know where to find tho outlaws, as we call them We are not supposed to fire until wo are fired upon, but you don't more than laud until bang goes some ouo's gun, and if gets started once you can't stop it. I would send home somo bolos but don't know whether they charge duty on them or not, but in'end to bring somo homo with mo when I come homo. You can tell all the boys for me that thoy had hotter stay where they are because hard tack and bacon isn't' like beef steak and biscuits for breakfast, when you can sit around tho tiro instead of cutting vour way through a iungle expecting to stop a slug any timo A while back wo expected to go to the field for three months but I guess it has quieted down now; the longest wo have eor been out was throe days, but that is long enough in mud and water up to your waist and about fifty pounds on your buck. Well, Mr. Sanders, I am get-1 ting sleepy but will try and write you something that is in- ( teres! ing if we take tho 27 day i hike that everybody is talking' about. 1 hope wo do for it will bo something now, for if you are busy over here the time will pass quicker, so good night, and give my love and best wishes to 1 all my. friends and tell them to write me. As ever, yours Richard Scott. Address Camp Keith ley, Co. B, 18 Inf. Mindano, P. I. Our merchants have a trouble some -problem. The food com mission have ruled that eggs come under the provisions of the pure food law. A farmer who sells bad eggs to the merchant or tany one else or a merchant who sells to a patron or dealer an egg that is bad lays himself liable to a fine of from $10 to $100. What is troubling the merchants is how to make themselves safe without too much work. If they candle the eggs and pay the farmers for the good ones only it will cause lots of work. The farmers should be very caref nl not to try to m'ar- ket bad eggs. If they do they will probably be confronted with a heavy fine some day.

Banks, Nr. i Plat; j, Nabr If one feels dull and spiritless, in the spring or early summer, they call it "Spring Feveh" But there isno fever usually. It is the after effects of our winter habits. The nerves are mostly at fault. Tired, worn-out nerves leave us languid, lifeless, and without spirit or ambition. A few doses of Dr. Shoop's Restorative will absolutely and quickly change all of these depressing symp toms. The Restorative of course won't bring you back to full health in a day or two, but it will do enough in 48 hours to satisfy you that the remedy is reaching that "tired spot." Druggists everywhere are advising its use as a splendid and prompt general tonic. It gives more vim and more spirit to the spoonful than any other known nerve or constitutional tonic. It sharpens a failing appetite, aids digestion, frees sluggish livers and kidneys, and brings new life, strength and ambitiou. Test it a few days and be convinced. Dr. W. W. Keeling. W. W.

Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, discourages and lessens ambition; beauty, vigor and cheenul ness soon disappear when the kidneys are out of order or dis eased. Kidney trouble has become so prevalent that it is not uncom mon for a child to be born afflicted with child urinates too often, if the urine scalds the flesh, or if, when the child reaches an mm ii'lii.fi it oltnnlil 1m iihli in rnutrnX the passnge, it is yet afflicted with bed-wetting, depend upon it, the cause of the diffi culty is kidney trouble, and the first step should be towards the treatment of these important organs. This unpleasant trouble is due to a diseased condition of the kidneys and bladder and not to ,a habit as most people suppose. Women as well as men are made miser able with kidney and bladder trouble, and both need the same great remedy. The mild and the immediate effect ol Swamp-Root is soon realized.
