Shakespeare's words, "What's in a
name?" cannot seiVL as a guide, if
you are buying a remedy. For every
valuable preparation the name means
many years of most careful studies
innumerable tests and painstaking ex
periments which have resulted in
reaching the greatest accomplishment.
If you want to get the most reliable
and most efficient remedy for all stom
ach troubles, constipation, headache,
nervousness, loss of appetite and en
ergy, etc., ask of your druggist Tri
ner's American Elixir of Bitter Wine.
Don't say only "Bitter Wine," but use
the correct name, "Triner's American
Elixir of Bitter Wine," and you will
avoid the possibility of getting a less
efficient or usually valueless substitute,
and in dry places you will show plain
ly that you want a remedy, not a bev

HAS STARTED IN
Cutting Will Progress Northward
Texa Bay Yield 15,000,000
Washington, O. C, May 23. In
Texas near P'ort Worth yesterday an
American reaper began to hum the
first notes of the world's greatest; ag
ricultural symphony the harvest of
the 1917 American wheat crop.
From now on the note will swell
until the crescendo of tens of thou
sands of such machines bursts over
the great granaries of Kansas and
the valleys of the Dakotas, until,
about the first of September, the last
North American sheaf has been cut
in the far of!" Hudson Bay country.
When "the Texas harvest has
started" flashed over the wires of the
brokers, crop students said that
never in history did such a message
carry more of hope and meaning to
the world, for this crop, according to
leading statesmen, enters into the
grand strategy of war and into the
very politics of nations.
The word fram Texas was taken
as a jjood omen, too, for it showed
that the harvest had been starteu
three days earlier than normal, and
even three days is important, it is
said, when the whole world is crying
or bread. Another cheering note
was added to the symphony by Ser
nard Snow, the crop statistician, who
said that Texas was expected to
yield 1.),uim;,wuu uusneis, ui i'j
cent more than last year.

Omaha, May 23. Nebraska's first

out of a wholesale seizure of liquor
esulted in a victory for the state.
Anton Larson, dairyman at Six-

place Sheriff Clark and deputies seiz
ed $5,000 worth of contraband booze
May 9, was found guilty by Judge
Crawford, sitting in county court,
and fined $100 and costs.
The court ordered the 1,200 cases
of beer and 500 gallons of whiskies,
expensive wines, gin, cordials and
other intoxicants destroyed. Counsel

PEACE WITH RUSSIA
OR GOOD HARVEST IS
AUSTRIA'S ONLY HOPE
(By a staff correspondent' of the
Associated Press, just returned from
Vienna), New York, May 23. Peace
with Russia and the hope that this
year's crops would be better than
those of last year have during recent
weeks been the sole factors in what
ever optimism existed in Austria-
Hungary concerning the outcome of
the European war.
It was thought that reaching1 an
understanding with Russia would
cause the entente governments also to
enter negotiations for peace, or, in
the absence of such an inclination on
their part release the central power
troops on the east front for opera
tions on other fronts.
Even with most favorable weather
conditions, there is small hope that
this year's crop will be as good as
last. This is because of the exhaust
ed state of the soil. The soil in
Austria needs constant fertilizing and
fertilizer is very scarce because of
the reduction in live stock production.

Washington, May 23. The war
revenue bill was passed by the house
The vote on final passage was 329
to 70; absent, 4. The bill purposes
raising approximately $1,800,000,000
of revenue from taxation.
Democrats, headed by Speaker
Clark and Floor Leader Kitchin,
voted solidly for the bill. Republi
can Leader Mann was among those
All the opposing votes were cast
by republicans, although there are
many members on the democratic
side strongly opposed to certain sec
tions of the measure.
Expect Senate Redraft.
Virtual redrafting of the bill in the
senate is regarded as certain. Mate
rial charges already are contemplated
by the senate finance committee as a
result of public hearings held during
the long debate in the house. Final
passage of the bill probably cannot
be accomplished in less than a month.
Outstanding features of the bill
are the greatly increased income, in
heritance, excess profit, liquor and
cigar and tobacco taxes, virtual abo
lition of the present customs free list
and a 10 per cent addition to existing
tariffs, new taxes on manufacturers,
amusements, clubs, public utilities
and insurance, a far reaching stamp
tax and a greatly increased mail mat
ter rate based on the parcel post zone
In only four particulars does the
measure now different substantially
from the original draft. Surtaxes on
incomes above $40,000 have been in
creased about one-fourth above the
committee schedule. Several articles
including print paper and pulp and
gold and silver, slated for a 10 per
cent duty, have been kept on the free
list. Slight reductions in the second
class mail matter rate have been
made. A proposed 5 per cent tax on
all advertising except newspaper and
periodical is eliminated.
Business) Men Protest.
Attacks on the bill in the senate
will center around the excess profits,
income and manufacturers' taxes and
the second class mail rate increase
sections. Business men generally are
protesting vigorously against the
taxes and virtually every publisher in
the country is opposing the drastic
ally increased mail rate.
In a final effort to summon all of
his party votes to support of the
measure, Democratic Leader Kitchin
declared that he had been informed
personally by President Wilson today
that he did not desire changes in the
bill in the senate, as had been cur
Republican Leader Mann insisted
that the bill would raise too large an
amount of money by direct and im
mediate taxes. He placed every pos
sible obstacle in the way of the meas
ure, even insisting on a roll call on a
motion to recommit. It was defeated
246 to 261.
