AT MERCY OF DEALERS AT PRESENT TIME Regeats gay They Have No Moaey to Carry Oat Law, bat Normal School Board Flags a Way. CFrom a Blaff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, Neb, Btpt. 24. SredaI. Students of the state university are not getting their text books at coat aa pro vided In the statutes, simply beesmse the regents of the university are' not carrying out the law. Section 16 of subdivision IS of the laws of the state university read: Text Hooka Aid to Students. The regents shall procure ail text books to be used In the university, and fhall furnish them to students at cost. The regents may, upon proper evidence of the good character of any student, and hla or her ambition to acquire an education and Inatmiry to pro vide hla or her own means therefor, donate to such student all text books he or she may need. and. by a two-thirds vole, may appropriate money to pay other expenses ror sucn srnaent; rrovtaea. sucn eruaeni will render Immediate equivalent in per sonal service for such appropriation, or give a sufficient obligation that he or she will reimburse the regents within five years. This law has never been enforced and the students are wondering why, J- Teeters, a member of the board of regents said yesterday: "I don t know "at tna law nas aver neen enioroeu, m have never done anything about it simpiy because the legislature failed to make an appropriation to carry It out. Wa would have to employ some one to loos alter the work and we have not the money with which to do this. The question has been often discussed, but we are powerlers to do anything until an appropriation is mads for thla purpose.' Probably there la a way that the regents can furnish those books at cost even If there Is no specific appropriation made for the purpose. At least a number of persona who ouarht to know seem to think so. in the section relating to the temporary unl verslty fund In section IS ef the same sub division It reads All mnnevs accrulns? to thla fund are hereby appropriated for the maintenance of the university. Including buildings and permanent Improvements, ana tne eame may bo applied by the Board of Regents to any and all university needs, except the Income from donations mnde for particular purposes, which Income shall be used and applied as nereinDerore speciiiwi oniy. Hsrsud Board Finds ay The question Is whether the university hook store Is a need of the university. Based on the action of the State Normal board In securing books for the Normal school the university book store Is cer- talrily a need of the Institution. The Nor furnishing of text books ana a pian was adopted whereby the surplus of the library fund was to be used for the first purcnase of books to be owned by the state. These books are to be sold to the students at oost or to be rented. Just as the student elects. This plan makes the book library self-sustaining because If a book costs tl and Is good for five years, at the end or each year the state will buy It back from the student at a discount of 20 cents. In other words, the book would be rented for 2fl oents a Tear. If this method of securing books for tns State Normal school is a good thing then It Is argued by tha studonts ths law reiat- Ing to the books for the university must . thin k wen Known auinoriir said there was no question but that money from the temnorary university fund coma be used by the regenU to secure the books. At Mercy of Dealers. ( At thla time the students are at the merer of the dealera and If the dealers c&r to go Into a combine to keep up prices the student Cannot help ramseu. xio to have the boose ana ne naa m par them. Many of tho docks are now u sold at prices greatly in exoese the list price and the excuse offered the students is that freight ratea are higher. Recently a student bought an engineering book that was listed at 83.75. It cost him 84-80. German readers that are listed at 36 cents are sold for ,46 cents, i nai tne dealers are maKing proms tnai are all reason of legitimate traae is provea oj little Incident that recently occurred. A student wanted to buy some fine tools and was told by the dealer they would cost him 85 a set. He made a canvas of the studenta and got orders for fifty sets, tie tnen bought the tools from the wholesale dealer and sold them to the students at less thn 14 a set and by the deal made over ISO clear money. He secured a discount of 20 per cent from the Hat price, then a sec ond discount of 10 per cent and ft final dis count for cash. Another way In which the university book store would be a good thing for the stu dent would be In the exchange of books. A student bought a book for 86 and after using It several months tried to exchange It. He was offered 66 cents for It by the dealer. If the university book store waa started and the law waa enforced the stu denta have figured that It would be a saving to them of at least 25 per cent on their purchases. The regents if they wanted to take the trouble to carry out the law, could buy their books frpm the wholesale dealers In Just the same way that school districts do. One member of the Board of Regents doesn't seem to think the law would bene fit the students to any great extent be cause he believed the competition among book dealers is so close that the prices are as low as they could be. Neither does he believe In the exchange of books be cause he fears It would spread the bubonlo plague or some other disease, which would be a great deal worse than the paltry sum saved the parents of the students. Many of the students are interested and it may be that the suit will be brought to see whether the regents can advance the money for the books and to pay some one to take charge of the matter -without a specific appropriation. Franklin Fair a Success. FRANKLIN, Neb., Sept. 24.-(Sperfal Telegram.)

The serpent 6inks its fangs into the flesh and almost instantly the poison passes through the entire body. Contagions Blood Poison, beginning with a little nicer, soon contaminates every drop of blood and spreads throughout the whole system. Painful swellings appear in the groins, a red rash and copper col ored splotches brealc out on the body, the mouth and throat become ulcerated, and the hair and eye brows fall out ; but these symptoms are mild compared to the wretchedness and suffering that come in the latter stages of the disease when it attacks the bones and more vital parts of the body. It is then that Contagious Blood Poison is seen ia all its hideousness. The deep eating ab scesses and sickening ulcers and tumors show the whole 6ystem is corrupted and poisoned, and unless relief comes soon this serpent disease tightens its coils and crushes out the life. The only antidote for the awful virus is S. S. S. Strong mineral remedies, like mercury and potash, dry up the sores and drive in the disease, but do not cure permanently.

The following letter haa been received by the committee: As wc understand that you have been ap pointed on a committee by tha Real Estate exchange of this city to investigate Omaha s advantages as a grain market, we take the liberty to call your attention to the fact that vie are transecting a general elevator end grain bualneas at this point, handling in the nel hbortihod of bushels annually. Tln-re la no point In the entire went that Is better situated than Omaha for the handling and forwarding of grain. The territory from which she can draw her supply la unsurpaswed. and there are enough trunk lint's oonvergmg at this point which v.-lll permit of resbipment to all points of the compomi. As far as grain rates are concerned Omaha Is grossly discriminated agolnst by nearly all lines pausing through the city, specially so by those lines whose natural terminus Is Chicago. What Omaha re quires to make It a grain market Is a rate in and out equal to the through rate, for MISSOURI VALLEY. City.

We will then have a basis on which to work. On the other hand, the Union Pacific com pany favors Omaha In this particular, as will be seen by the following: The rate from North Bend to Chicago on corn In car lots is a cents per owt., from North Bend to Omaha 8 cents per owt and from Omaha to Chicago 13 cents per owt or equal to the through rate of a cents per cwt Aa soon as this discrimination Is wholly or partially removed we stand ready to erect a 800.000 to 600,000 bushel transfer house. The business men of Omaha do not at tach enough Importance to the grain busi ness. It haa been the making of both Kan sas City and Chloago and la equally as val unable as the live stock buslnnns.
