It absolutely hss no equal for the preven
tion and cure of croup, and if taken In
time and according to directions, It Is a
most excellent remedy for whooping cough
and all throat and lung trouble. I would
recommend that a bottle of this medicine
be kept In the home at all times, especially
where there are children In the family."

The attention of the city officials wss
called yesterday to the condition of the Q
street viaduct by a letter from C. A. Pratt,
chief engineer of the Armour plant In this
city. Mr. Plstt declsres that the middle
and west end wooden spans of the Q street
visduct are In a dangerous condition. He
further says that the street car tracks are
uneven and that motor trains often run
over this portion of the bridge at nearly
full speed. "This speed," says Mr. Pratt,
"brings a tremendous strain upon the
wooden spans, which are partially rotted
Some time ago the attention of tbe city
authorities was called to the condition of
the viaduct by the newspapers, and It waa
aaserted at tbe time that tbe railroads
would be aaked to make Immediate repalra.
Matters ran along for a month or ao and
then it waa given out by the railroads that
material had been ordered for the repalra.
W. S. King, chief engineer of the Vnlon
Stock Tarda company, was authority for
this ststement. He said the material had
to come from Oregon and be could not aay
Just when it would arrive.
In addition to the complaint of Engineer
Pratt about the condition of tbe bridge he
saya that the street car tracks are uneven
and thus endanger tbe lives of those cross
ing in crowded cars.
In looking up the city records it was
found that the bridge was never meant fcr
street car traffic at the ttm It was en
acted. When tbe people In the southwest
ern part of the city wanted a street car
line they were willing to give up every
thing, so it seems. In order to get the line
through. One of the old Third ward rep
resentatives in the council at tbat time,
J. J. Ryan, secured the passage of an or
dinance declaring the street csr company
exempt from all repairs for a long term of
yeara providing tbe line waa extended.
Since that time the new charter has been
In effect and a decision f tbe supreme
court haa been handed down declaring it
the duty of railroads to keep the viaducts
In repair, etc.
Now tbe great trouble aeems to be about
the laying of tracks on tbe Q street viaduct.
Engineers consulted yesterday assert that
if the railroad companies would repair the
bridge properly the street car company
ahould be compelled to lay Its tracks on a
level withy the roadway and not have them
from three to six inches above the planks
used by teams. "This." said an engineer
who looked over the ground with a Bee re
porter, "could be averted by the laying of
a double floor. The street csr company
uses a T rail, and if a double Boor was
laid, which ahould be done, the rails would
not project above the flooring, providing
tbe company waa compelled to lay a floor
ing between the tracks."
It was asserted by city officials laat night
that unleas improvements on the viaduct
commence soon the structure will be closed

At the the troop armory ball last night
the members of the paid fire department
of South Omaha gave their thirteenth an

the hall being crowded from the time of the
opening dance until the orchestra played
"Home, Eweet Home."
All of the members of the department
appeared In uniform and presented a fine
appearance. Arrangements were made by
Chief Etter tbat In case of a tiro an alarm
should be sent direct to the hall by private
wire and the boss companlea were in shape
to respond immediately.
In honor of the occasion the hall was
decorated with flags and potted plants and
the music was excellent. The net proceeds
of the ball will be turned Into the Fire
men's Relief association.
Hard Coal Arrives.
Several cars of anthracite coal arrived
here yesterday. It was all of the range
size and eastern dealers write here that
there Is no prospect of getting chestnut
coal west of the river before February
1. It appears tbat range coal la aU that
la being ahlpped now. In many cases this
will prove a hardship to South Omaha con
sumers of anthracite, as cheatnut also Is
generally desired. The range coal now on
the market Is selling at 114 a ton.

by the Val Blatt Brewing Co., Milwaukee,

In Its artistic beauty, but tells an Interest

"What Her Blue Eyes Ssw; a Morning at

and Indicates tbe nsture ot tbe Interesting

illustrations throughout this work are of
actual scenes and actual people, a young
lady well known In Milwaukee society being
the blue-eyed heroine of the story and ap
pearing In tbe various pictures ot the many
departments of this vast brewery.
What she sees and learns about modern
methods of beer making as perfected In the
Blatt plant gives tbe reader some Idea ot
the cause for tbe high quality, purity and
popularity of Blatt' Beers and Blatt' Malt
Vtvlne, tbe health tonic.
Her Interrogations elicit the fact, that
Blatt beer began to be in Wb; that the en
tire plant Is operated and lighted by elec
tricity, and that It Is the first brewery and
the only one to be thus equipped. Her con
versation with the brew-master is Instruc
tive and entertaining and full of facts that
people want to know.
The whole work gives one a loftier Idea of
beer In general and ot Blatt beer In par
