Cards were received in this city the last of the week announcing the mar riage on January 18 of Dr. Henry Wal ton and Misa Helen Alford Smith of Baltimore. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Walton, formerly of this city and well known to many of our readers, all of whom join the Leader in extending congratulations. A Nemaha county farmer who keeps his eyes open tells the Auburn Republi can that he has found a substitute for high priced corn. He 6ays: "The cheapest way to make pork is to raise rutabagas aud feed them in connection with a little clover to the hogs. Three bushels of corn with this feed will take the hog through the winter all right. It makes good pork, too, and at a low price." AIiBION. From the Nows. The Primrose Record says the had a "waist and arm social" at the preacher's house. We don't know what the mod ern interpretation of that may be, but that combination wasn't considered proper for public entertainments when ' we were yonng. Quite a delegation from St Edward and vicinity appeared before the board of commissioners at their session last week and presented their views with regard to changing of the main road be tween St. Edward and Woodville.

Robert B. Sutton was etricken with paralsis about 8 p. m. Dec. 2G, 1909, nnd was called away by death Jan. 8, 1910, a little less than two weeks later. Every thing that skill or loving hands could do was done in a vain effort to save him, but tho sands in the Hour Glass of life refused to ilow. The reaper stood ready to cut the ripened grain. He was con scious only a part of the time and during those times spoke of his approaching death. Mr. Sutton was born in Glosada, Orange County, New York, July 4. 3837. He was married to Sarah A. Chapman Dec. 4, 1859, having passed fifty years of wedded life together Dec. 4, 1909. One son William M. was born to this union who died at the age of 32 years.

Kehoe returned from an extended visit in Canada last Monday evening. She reports the weather ex tremely cold and stormy during her stay in Canada. Henry Dyke marketed eight hogs in Platte Center Monday that brought him a little over $241.00 $30,20 cents apeice. That's going some, when it takes a good cow to bring as much money as a hog and cows are not on the cheap list either. D. E. Donohne attended the hone Bale at Columbus last Thursday, and purchased a fine matched team, paying, so we are informed, $450 for them. He started to lead them home behind his buggy and before he was out of the city one of them fell on the slippery street and broke its hip. The animal was left in the care of veterinary surgeons, but it is doubtful if it recovers. George and John Webster started for Oklahoma Monday to assist Dick Brans and Andrew Kamm pack np their effects and move back to Nebraska. BrunB and Kamm went to Oklahoma two years ago, but have evidently not made a success of farming down there, else they would rot return to Nebraska so soon. We understand that Kamm has rented the Oronin farm and Brans has rented a farm north of Monroe. The hearts of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Schumacher were glast Thursday night when .their son Henry arrived for an ex tended visit, after the expiration of his four year term in the U. S. Navy. Henry Schumacher, jr., is the youngest child in the family and his home-coming occasioned genuine joy among his many relatives and friends at this place. He left here some four years ago to join the navy, and the thorough training recei ved as one of Uncle Sam's blue jackets developed him into a magnificant speci men of physical manhood, and withal he bears the manners and character of a perfect gentleman.

The cause of her death was a sev ere fall she sustained Monday morning, on un icy sidewalk, causing a rupture.

Last Friday at the preliminary trial Walter Ralston and Harry Brown were bound over to appear in district court at the February term to answer the charge of holding up and robbing Frank Verba two weeks ago at the Shell creek bridge north of town. Neither of them has yet furnished bond which was placed at $1,000, and both are in jail. Mr. Engene Corson spent Sunday night in Schuyler, being on his way from Silver Creek to Rogers with his live stock. Mr. Corson will be remem bered by many as an old resident of Colfax county, having left here some eleven years ago. He thought the weather too dangerous to ship his live stock and the distance was not too far to drive them overland. He is going to reside on the Wheeler farm near Rogers. Mr. Corson lived in Colfax county when the nearest railroad was Iowa City, Iowa, his father moving here with the family in 1857. Mr. Eugene Corson's father, R. W. Corson, was the first county treasurer of Colfax ounty and helped to organize theoriginal county. The first official act of Sheriff Kunkle was to go to Lincoln and bring Gerald Eubik back to Schuyler for forgery. About three years ago Kubik, who is a young man, asked for the loan of $150 from the bank of F. Fonda. He waB told he could have it if his mother signed the note. He was given a note to take to his mother to sign and' later returned with his mother's name. A year later when the note was presented for pay ment Mrs. Kubik claimed to have not signed it, so the bank swore out a war rant for him which has been in the hands of the sheriff for a long time but he seemed unable to locate yonng Kubik. When Sheriff Kunkle took the office Jan. 6th he begins a pearch for young Kubik and located him in Lincoln. He wired the authorities there to arrest and hold him. The sheriff went dow n and return ed Monday evening with the prisoner who is now in the county jail. BELIAVOOD. From the Gazette. A new farmers elevator is now talked of for Bellwood.

The American apple at its best has long been recognized as one of the most healthful and appetizing of fruits. It now has a new claim to public favor. An Iowa physician, a prominent mem ber of the National Medical society, al leges that apple eating cures the desire for strong drink. When a western Nebraska editor was told of a lady in his town who kneaded bread with her gloves on. he came back in this truthful wise: "This indeed may be somewhat peculiar, but there are others. The editor of this paper needs bread with his shoes on. He also needs bread with his pants on, and un less some of the deliquent subscribers to this Old Rag of freedom poy up before long, he will need bread without a blamed thing on and Nebraska is no Garden of Eden in the winter time, either." Boys with hats on the back of their heads and long hair hanging down over their foreheads and cigarettes and very smutty stories in their months are cheap er than old worn out work horses. No body wants them at nny price. Men don't employ them and sensible girls won't marry them. They are not worth their keeping to anybody and it is not likely they will be able to keep themsel ves. If anybody should happen to read this who answers to the above descrip tion, let him take a look at himself and jump in a wen ana say: -nerc goes nothing." Not Mechanical. A song and dnnce comedian waa working in a cheap vaudeville house where a performance was given hour ly. The tired performer had made nine appearances nnd had fallen asleep on his trunk when the manager poked him in the ribs nnd said: "Hey, you wake up! It's time for you to go on .-inin.

A STARTLING STATEMENT. New York Medical Authorities Claim Dyspepsia to be aPre-Dis-posing Cause of Consumption. The post mortem statistics of the big New York hospitals shows that some cases of consumption are due, at least indirectly, to unchecked dyspepsia, es pecially when the victim was predis posed to tuberculosis Dyspepsia wears out the body and brain. The weakened, irritable stom ach being unable to digest food, the body does not receive the required nourishment, and the victim becomes thin, weak and haggard. As a result, the body becomes a fertile field in which the germs of disease may lodge and flourish. Theiefore, the person who permits dyspepsia to progress unhindered is guilty of contributing towards the de velopment of one of the most insidious and fatal diseases known to mankind. Dyspepsia may be completely eradicat ed if properly treated. We sell a re medy that we positively guarantee will completely relieve indigestion or dyspep sia, or the medicine used during the trial will cost the user nothing.
