ELLEN MOYER Ellen Warner was born in Berks county, Pennsylvania, on Nov. 13, 1830, and died near Wetmore, Monday, August 24, 1914, at the age of 83 years, 10 months and 11 days. She was married to Augustus Moyer in 1852, and to this union were born nine children, five of whom have departed this life. The husband died twelve years ago. There are four.

children still living, namely: Mrs. Anna Metzdorf, Mrs. Hettie Heald, Mrs. Peter Cassity and W. G.

Moyer. With her husband Mrs. Moyer came to Nemaha county in 1866, where she lived the remainder of her life, except the last few months, which were spent with her daughter, Mrs. Cassity, in Brown county, where she passed away. Aunt Ellen, as she was commonly called, was a kind, faithful wife and mother, always ready to give a helping hand when help was needed.

In late years, because of her age and afflictions she often said she was tired of this life and many times prayed for God to take her home to rest in glory. In her early life she united wife the German Lutheran church, in which faith she lived until her death. Funeral services were held at the house Wednesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. J. J.

Hulme, pastor of the Baptist church, and interment was made in Wetmore Cemetery. LABOR DAY AT HORTON "The big feature of the Labor Day Celebration at Horton will be the tion feat.

You may think it strange that so many people are cured of stomach trouble by Chamberlain's Tablets. You would not, however, if you should give them a trial. They strengthen and invigorate the stomach and enable it to perform its functions naturally. Mrs. Rosie Rish, Wabash, writes, "Nothing did me least good until I began using Chamberlain's Tablets.

$1.00 per year. COUNTY CLERK SOURK SUICIDES Tuesday morning a little after 8 o'clock J. S. Fitzgerald received a phone message from Seneca to the effect that County Clerk J. L.

Sourk had left his home in an auto with the intention of killing himself and asking Mr. Fitzgerald to look out for him should he by any chance motor to Wetmore. A few minutes later another message was received which said the auto had been found about a mile east of Seneca near the Nemaha river, but Mr. Sourk had not been found. This message was followed in a few minutes by another stating that the body of the unfortunate man had been found in the river, not far from the car.

The first intimation that any one had that Mr. Sourk had considered self-destruction was when his wife discovered a note on a table in their home at 7.30 in the morning on which was written: "I am better off dead than alive." She immediately gave the alarm, but it was too late, and two hours from the finding of the note the body of the unfortunate man was taken from the river. Mr. Sourk had been in ill health for some time and for three months had been unable to attend to the duties of his office, and this fact, it is thought, caused a giving way of the mind, and the dreadful tragedy followed. Mr.

Sourk was born and raised near Goff and was a highly respected citizen, and was serving his second term as county clerk, in which capacity he gave entire satisfaction, so far as we have been able to learn. He leaves his wife and two small sons, besides a large number of other relatives. FARM LOANS Can make you a farm loan at 54 per cent with a small cash commission. See F. M.

F. P. Achten, Clerk. Constipation in Summer-time is more dangerous than in the fall, winter or spring. The food you eat is often contaminated and is more likely to ferment in your stomach.

Then you are apt to drink much cold water during the hot weather, thus injuring your stomach, Colic, Fever, Ptomaine Poisoning and other ills are natural results. Po-Do-Lax will keep you well, as it increases the Bile, the natural laxative, which rids the bowels of the congested poisonous waste. Po-Do-Lax will make you feel better. Pleasant and effective.
