The Importance of the work being done now, Chairman Hayward desires Impressed ' upon the county and precinct workers.

The woik of organizatlng will noe cease with the election this fall, but will be continued throughout the year, so that Nebraska can be kept' In the republi can column In the presidential year.

'He desires to Impress upon the republicans of the state that It Is going to take a renl light to continue the lepublican admlnlHtratlon cf affairs and a siip this fall will make juBt that much harder the winning of the coming battle next year. Vive President Robertson of the Univer sity Republican club will call a meeting some time next week for the purpose of organizing a Reese club. A few of the old . students of Judge Reese met at the republi can state headquarters yesterday and ale cussed ' Informally this organisation and agreed that a meeting should be called for next week. Meeting of, Iterkmts. K.'M. Bearle, Jr.. secretary of the Ne braska Stock Growers' association, will Issue a call shortly for a meeting of all stockmen to be held at Alliance. January 81. This call Is In accord with the decision of the stockmen who recently held a meet ing at South Omaha for the purpose of discussing quarantine. The general govern ment refused to Inspect cattle sold locally and the state has no appropriation to pay for the Inspection' and dipping of cattle. This meeting Is for the purpose of getting the individual stock grower interested to the extent that he will clean up his own cattle. It is said Nebraska is behind Colo rado. Wyoming and South Dakota in the mailer ot Clean caiuv nt iui men. . at the coming mftlng It will be urged that growers dip their own cattle, making the preparations during the corning aprlng months. The health officers from these states who have superintended the clean ing up In their respective states will be at the meeting and tell what was done by. them. i In dlseueslng the, report that many hogs in Nebraska are dying of cholera. Dr. A. T. Peters said he Inspected three herds the first of the week snd the deaths In these were nbt.due to choVera. but to In. judicious feeding. . Many feeders, he said, ore giving their stock patent medicines which have' no good effect In many In stancea. On men was feeding a high priced stock ,oc.ijr',.hlch contained only Miflilgan salt'ecifoYe.d with ochre, but the f Amcr wouldn't .believe It. W Probable $kkra3 la Guard. Adjutant General Schwarz 1b preparing to Send out an order to the members of the Xattonal Guard In which he will tell them what degree ft efficiency Is to be reached in order to save the national aid to the state. He Is thinking also of offering to each member of the guard 15 cents a week for the drill, as an inducement to get the members to take some Interest in the work. This will cost the state in the neighbor hood ot IH.000 a year, but the adjutant gen eral believes the result will justify the ex penditure. Incidentally there Is liable to be a general shaking up of the guard in the coming months In which a number of com panies may be mustered out of the service, letters' coming to the state house Indicate the men high up In the guard pay little at tention ? military requirements in making up reports and In a few Instances officers have actually written sarcastic letters to the adjutant. Among the reasons assigned for the poor condition of the guard Is the election of Inefficient officers In many In stances; that the private get no pay ex cept When In camp; the cost of rent for armories, which has to be paid largely by the members of the guard. At this time the government Is paying about two-thirds of the r.xpense of the guard and unless the required efficiency Is reached by January this aid will be discontinued. Prosecattna af Packer. County Attorney English having failed to show a disposition to file complaints against the packing houses at the request of State Food Commissioner Johnson, the complaints will be filed by County Attor ney Tyrrell of Lancaster county. This, Mr. Johnson decided upon this' afternoon after waiting for about two weeks for English to get busy. On September 26 Johnson wrote English that the packing houses In Omaha were selling meat packages not stamped properly with the net weight and therefore the law was being violated. To get the evidence, he cited the county at torney to any market in Omaha where meat Is sold. In reply, English Informed the commissioner It was necessary for the county attorney to have the names of the defendants; the Instances where the law was being violated and other specific information. He concluded his letter by asking If the attorney general had ever given an opinion as to the legality of that portion of the pure food law. Inasmuch as Johnson had furnished the county at, torney with enough evidence upon which to base a complaint, he concluded any farther correspondence on the subject with the official would be a waste of time so did not reply to his letter, especially as he understood the packing houses would not deny the charge. The packing house at Nebraska City has notified the food commissioner that it will obey the law In the matter of stamping its packages. Express Com pa ay Loses Money. The annual rejxirt of Wells.

Labor Commissioner J. J. Ryder spoke to the Woman's club meeting this afternoon. Ho said that In round numbers there are probably 2.000 manufacturing establish ments In Nebraska today. To count the stores and other places named ln the law would greatly Increase the number of work ing places to be considered. It Is a con servative estimate to say that 50 per cent of all the working places are concerned with the question of child labor, at least to some extent St'.ll, In face - of - theae facts, the law provides only for a volun teer board of five Inspectors. They are not even allowed street car fare, nor Is any provision made even for stationery. Estimates based on United States census figures indicate that of the almost 80,000 male children In the state between 10 and 15 years of aga 17.5 per cent are, or were, employed ln variom occupations. This per centage means, roughly, l'3,5oO boys at work. In round numbers the female children be tween 10 and 15 year may be set down as 75.01X1, and It la e;ernally to the credit of Nebraska tliut of this army of possible future mothers oily 3.8 per cent were, at tho last census returns available, engaged in work for bread. Then, counting messen gers and newsbots, delivery boys and simi lar scattered groups, there will be about 20,i00 children who can properly be called breadwinners. The number of complaints of actual or deliberate evasion of the law is very small to date. There Is a finer spirit among employers than a mere fear of the law. If they were setting them selves to vex and defeat ua, our forces are utterly Inadequate to cope with them, but they are not. Nebraska employers are, ln large measure, helping us to close the door on danger. Annual Report of t'nlon Parlfle Road bows Lena T rente for 1007 Milk Man Files a Complaint. (Prom a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. Oct. 10. (Special Telegram.) Attorney Paul Plxey of Dakota City, who acted ln the case brovght by democrats of Dakota county seeking to enforce the right to fill vacancies on the psrty ticket left blank at the primary, has written to the clerk of the court here asking If a similar case Is not now pending before the su premo court. The Dakota county case was decided by Judge Welch In favor of the democrats, the court holding they have the right to fill vacancies and give new candi dates party endorsement. Attorney Plzey was seeking Information before deciding whether to take the case up. There Is no similar case In supreme court and if the test of the law on this point Is to be made this fall, It must come ln the Dakota county action. Attorney General Thompson Insists that his opinion that va cancies cannot be filled except by candi dates running by petition, Is correct. He Is sustained In this by a recent decision of the Minnesota aupreme court. He holds the primary Is not In the nature of a gen eral election, but Is a big family aflatr among the members of each party. Reg ulations that have been governing the elec tions have no force with the primary ex cept as the law specifically provides them. In this case, where a vacancy exists after the primary, it Is supposed the party had knowledge of the matter and was satisfied to permit the condition. Report of t'nlon Pacific.

Waist Line After a Hearty Meal. Did your last meal taste dellclously good to you, and did you eat all you wanted? Could you have patted your rotundity In glee and felt proud of your appetite and of your good strong stomach? Do you feel rosy now because your lust meal gave you no Inconvenience whatever? If not, you have dyspepsia In some form, and probably never realized It. If you have the least trouble In your stomach after eating, no matter how lit tle or how much you eat, there Is trouble brewing and you must correct It at once. Most all stomach troubles come from poor, wesk, scsnty gastric juice, that precious liquid' which ought to turn your food into rich, red blood. If you have nausea, your gastric juice Is weak If you have sour rising of belching, your food is fermenting; your gastric juice is weak. If you have loss of appetite, your gastric Juke is weak. If you have a bloaty feeling of aversion to food, your gastrlo juice Is weak. Tou need something In your stomach to supply the gastric Juice which Is scanty and to give power to the weak gastric Juice. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets do this veiy thing. Nebraska New Note.
