; Matters In District Conrt.
Thi case against Chris Thompson, the
bartender charged with ahooting and
wounding John Carter, a former Milwaukee
switchman. In a South Main street saloon,
was dismissed yesterday by Judge Green
In district court. Thompson's trial a few
days ago, without the presence of Carter,
who could not be located by the authori
ties, resulted in a disagreement of the
jury. Yesterday County Attorney J. J.
jless received' a letter from Carter, dated
and mailed from Omaha, In which Carter
asked that the case against Thompson be
dismissed. Carter, In his letter, said that
ho had been frequently warned by Thomp
son not to attempt to go behind the bar
and that the shooting was entirely his
fault. The county attorney referred the
letter to Judge Green and they agreed
that there waa little use In trying Thomp
son a second time under the circumstances.
The caae of the State against William
Kaph, charged witb breaking and entering
a railroad car, was also dismissed for
want of sufficient evidence.

Treating The Wrong Disease
Many times women call on their family physicians, suffering, as they
imagine, one from dyspepsia, another from heart disease, another from f )
liver or kidney disease, another from nervous prostration, another with fv - ,,
pain here and there, and in this way they present alike to themselves r "S I
and their easy-going or over-busy doctor, separate diseases, for which SI
he, assuming them to be such, prescribes his pills and potions. In
reality thev are all only symptoms caused by some weakness or derange
ment of the organs distinctly feminine. The physician, ignorant of the
caust of suffering, keeps up his treatment until large bills are made.
The suffering patient gets no better by reason of the wrong treat
ment, but Drobablv Worse. A nrnner mrAir'inr lilre. TV Pi-.tv-e.'e Fa.
vonte Prescription, directed to the cause would have entirely removed . the disease, thereby
dispelling all those distressing symptoms, and instituting comfort instead of prolonged
misery. It has been well said; tiiat "a disease known is half cured."
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is a scientific medicine, carefully devised by
an experienced and skillful physician, and adapted to woman's delicate system.
It is made of native American medicinal roots without the use of alcohol
and Is perfectly harmless in Its effects In any condition of the female system.
As a powerful, invigorating tonic "Fa
vorite Prescription" imparts strength to
the whole system and to the organs dis
tinctly feminine in particular. For over-worked,"worn-out,"
teachers, milliners, dressmakers, seam
stresses, "shop-girls," house-keepers, nurs
ing mothers, and feeble women generally,
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the
greatest earthly boon, being unequaled
as an appetizing cordial and restorative
As a soothing and strengthening nerv-
Everv Woman ought to possess Dr. Pierce's great,book, the People's Common Sense Mdical
Adviser, a magnificent thousand-page illustrated volume. It teaches mothers how to care fo their
children and themselves. It is the best doctor to have in the house in case of emergency. Over half
a million copies were sold at $1.50 each, but one fret copy in paper-covers will be sent on receipt of
21 one-cent stamps to pay the cost of mailing tnly: or send 31 stamps for a handsome cloth-bound
