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 erage. Price $1.00, at drug- stores. Triner's Liniment, of a world-wide reputation, helps quickly in rheuma tism, neuralgia, accidents, etc. Price 25c and 50c at drug stores; by mail, 35c and 00c.

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.

Nebraska's first test case under prohibition arising out of a wholesale seizure of liquor esulted in a victory for the state. Anton Larson, dairyman at Six- ieth and Center streets, at whose 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 for Larson immediately filed an ap peal bond.

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.

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 voting Nay. 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 system. 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 rently reported. 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. "WW 4. MURDOCK. J (Special Correspondence.)
