Life is but a mass of habits. And
the worst habit stamped upon the
fHces of the American people is
WORRY. Reecher says: "It is not
work that kills man. it is worry.
Work is healthful, but worry is rust
upon the blade." Worry prevents
the normal muscular action of the
stomach and intestines and paralyzes
digestion. The best means how to
get away from this habit is to take
Triner's Ritter Wine. This remedy
stimulates the intestines to normal
action and by helping digestion be
comes an invaluable ally in your
light with worry. Your druggist, or
dealer in medicines has Triner's Bit
ter Wine in stock. In case of colds
and coughs he will wait on you with
Triner's Cough Sedative, an excellent
remedy. Mr. Michael Matyska wrote
us from Glenmont. N. Y., on April
27. 1921: "Your Cough Sedative
helped me wonderfully." It will help
you too. Joseph Triner Company,

That Omaha might have boasted
a memorial monument from the chisel
CM" Sir Moses Ezekiel. celebrated Amer
ican sculptor, who died in Italy re
cently and whose body was re-in-ti
rre l in Arlington cemetery three
weeks ago. is information gleaned
in a letter from the artist to his
Omaha friend, the late Simon Goetz.
The hitter's daughters, the Misses
Laura and Jessie Goetz. uncovered
the letter among their father's pos
sessions. It was written from Rome.
March 5. 18S9. and is as well pre
served as though written last month.
The memorial under consideration
was a Grand Army of the RepubLic
monument, which the late Colonel
Chase, father of Clement Chase, was
"No Artistic Value."
"I would indeed like to make a
soldier's monument for your city, a
unique work of art such as per
haps has not yet been erected in our
country inasmuch as the fashion
there seems to be, I am sorry to
say. to give such works to manufac
turing companies. Except the value
of the material they possess, they
have no artistic value." he wrote.
Rut Ezekiel refused to enter a
competition for the Omaha commis
sion, he further set forth, because
of the sham attendant upon such
"All of Astor's wealth could not
induce me to enter such lists and
thank Heaven. I don't need it," he
wrot". "Although I am still as poor
as Jab's turkey-hen." he added
whimsically, "I have work enough to
keep the kettle boiling."
In another letter. May IT. 1SS9. he
expressed thanks for copies of "The
Iiee" sent to him by Mr. Goetz.
Ezekiel was at that time modelling
a colossal bust of Longfellow for the
Cincinnati Museum of Art and a tomb
for President White of Cornell col
lege. Knighted by King.
The late Omahan and Ezekiel. who
whs knighted by the king of Italy,
were boyhood friends and school
ma'es in Cincinnati indeed, there
is a cousinship between Mrs. Goetz
and the gifted sculptor.

Relying upon a decision of the su
preme court State Auditor George W.
Marsh will pay no attention to the
legislative appropriation of $2,473
from the state treasury to pay the
;laim of J. L. Jacobs & Co., of Chi
cago, efficiency engineers, who started
the machinery of the code bill for
The auditor construes the opinion
of the supreme court in question to be
ample authority for him to use his
judgment in auditing claims upon the
state treasury regardless of legisla
tive action. Under the court decision
the legislature has no right to audit
claims and the fact that the legisla
ture appropriates funds for payment
of a claim does not relieve the auditor
of the seponsibiltv of performing his
Auditor Marsh rejected the Jacobs'
claim last year and a suit was filed
by the attorney of the claimant. This
suit was an appeal from the auditor's
decision provided for by the statute in
such case. Since the appeal was taken
the legislature appropriated funds for
the payment of the Jacobs' claim.
Auditor Marsh will not issue a war
rant on this appropriation. He will
await action of the courts in the ap
peal pending in the district court of
Lancaster county. The appropriation
in the Jacobs case was made by the
legislature as the result of a confer
ence, committee report adopted by
both houses of the legislature at the
last hours of the recent legislative
The auditor relies upon the su
preme court opinion in the case of
James Richards against H. A. Bab-
cock, state auditor, tried in the year
18S3. The desdeion was written by
Judge M. B. Reese. The court held
that the legislature may set apart
money to pay a claim, but it cannot
order it to be done except in the
manner provided by law, and the law
imposes upon the auditor the duty
of examining claims and makes him
responsible for warrants improperly
drawn. In the James case the legis
lature had made an appropriation to
cover a claim previously disallowed
by the state auditor. The auditor paid
a portion of the appropriation to the
claimant and disallowed a portion.
The claim was for services performed
for the state in prosecuting I. P.
Olive and others for murder. In that
case the claimant sought to show
that the auditor's duties are merely
ministerial in carrying cut the will of
the legislature, hue the eourt held
that the constitution and law provide
differently. The court refused to
grant a writ commanding the auditor
to allow the full amount of the claim
as appropriated by the legislature,
holding that the law furnshes an ade
quate remedy by an appeal from the
Decision of the Court.
Of recent years many state offcials
have questioned the right of the state
auditor to disallow a claim when
funds for its payment have been made
by the legislature. The recent legis
lature made several appropriations
in language intended to be a com
mand upon the state auditor to pay
certain claims. The auditor will not
heed such orders unless he finds the
claims legal and just.
