REPLIES TO RIDGELL
STATE TREASURER HAS FILED
ANSWER IN SUIT.
NEWS OF THE STATE HOUSE
Items of General Interett Gathered
From Reliable Sources at
Western Newspaper Union News Servlc
State Treasurer Hall lias filed In tho
Bupremo court his answer to tho al
ternatlvo writ of mandamus asked for
by Fire Commissioner ltldgoll In tho
suit brought by tho latter some days
ago to compel tho treasurer to coun
tersign nnil pay Hldgcll's salary and
expenso warrants for the month of
September, amounting to $201.21. Tho
names of II. II. Wilson and 0. W.
lJcrgo are appended to It as attorneys
for Mr. Hall.
Tho treasurer admits that tho war
rants were duly Issued and presented,
and that they aro In regular form;
also that there Is duo Mr. Uidgell tho
sums named. Ho llkowlso acknowl
edges that ho refused and still re
fuses to countersign or pay them, not
withstanding that ho has in his hands
$0,000 collected as a special tax from
llro Insurance companies for tho sup
port of the lire commission, us pro
vided by law.
It Is declared, however, that tho
treasurer ntid his bondsmen are llablo
for tho safekeeping of state funds, and
that he has no authority to pay out
money except when It Is specifically
appropriated by the legislature. In tho
fire commissioner's case, says tho
treasurer's pleading, tho legislature of
1915 mado no appropriation, and
therefore ho Is without authority to
pay tho warrants.
To Receive Benefit of New Law.
George Tost, an Inmate of tho state
penitentiary, has been granted a
diminution of sentence, In addition to
the regular- "good tlmo" allowance.
The additional allowance which was
grunted by the state board of control
upon recommendation of Warden Pen
ton, Is onotwelfth or tho tlmo served
and to be served by him, beginning
July S, 1916, until paroled.
Post Is the first man to receive the
benoflt of H. It. 510, laws of Nebraska.
1916, an act providing for diminu
tion of sentence for good conduct as
a trusty. The board, In its order,
stated that Post had been employed
outside the prison enclosure for eov
eral months past and has manifested
good conduct, cheerful compliance
with rule3, diligence in work and
fidelity to trust. By tttiB order of
tho board, a reward for good con
duct, Post's sentence is considerably
reduced. The ordinary good time al
lowance would have mado his maxi
mum sentence oxplrc February 3, 1920.
The working of tho additional "good
time" will nllow his release October

Wl I Enforce the Law.
Labor Commlslouer Coffoy Is pro
paring blanks to bo used In enforcing
tho employment agency regulation law
passed by tho last legislature. This
law waj passed for tho regulation of
private employment agencies, requir
ing them to take out a licenso from
the bLor commissioner's ofllco and
pay a feo of $G0 a year. Teachers'
agencies aro required to pny a fee of
$10 n year. Each agency Is required
to file n bond for $2,000 to insure
compliance with tho law. The labor
commissioner is empowered to make
investigations with full inquisitorial
powers. Each agency must keep n
record showing tho names of all per
sons for whom employment is secured
and the fees charged them. A receipt
must be Issued to each person pay
ing a fee, and must show what service
was rendered. Carbon copies of all
receipts must bo furnished to tho labor
commissioner and agoncleB must re
port monthly to him.

Stato Superintendent Thomas has
received applications for the Inspec
tion of 149 co-operntlvo rural schools.
Ho believes applications will bo made
by 300. From 2,000 to 3,000 pupils will
thus havo tho advantage of a high
school training. These schools are
paying good salaries to teachers, from
500 to $100 a month, and half a dozen
have built residences for teachers.
Twenty-four schools havo asked for
approval of their courses in agricul
ture. Approved schools will receive
from $200 to $500 n year out of a total
appropriation of $30,000,
Food Commission Resumes Activities.
Food Inupectton and all activities of
the food and oil commission are to be
renowed following tho decision of Gov
ernor Morohead to allow his deputy,
Clarence Harman, to pay all depart
mental exponses before turning over
tho hnlanco of funds to th Btate treas
urer. This will successfully ovado the
ruling of Treasurer Hall that no ex
penses of this department wero to be
paid because the legislature failed to
make a specific appropriation of
money for the department's maintenance.

On the Side
Certain elements are necessary
for building stout bodies and active
brains. The great majority of these
all-important elements for life and
health are supplied by Nature in
her field grains, wheat and barley. But white flour
products lack these essential elements Why?
Because the miller to make his flour look -white
and pretty throws out about 45 ths. of the mineral
content of the wheat necessary for building brain,
nerve and muscle.
Scientific opinion is on the side of

Not only does this famous pure food supply all
the sound nourishment of the wheat, including the
vital mineral elements sturdy builders of brain, nerve
and muscle but of malted barley as well.
