1. R. ANDREWS IS MISSING
Omaha Attorney Mysteriously Disappears
i- Hear HU Property at Aih!ni
BLOODHOUNDS USED IN SEARCH OF HIM
Wile and Friend Are Myatlfled
Well Shocked Over the '
Episode I.aat Hera Frl
T. R. Andrews, a prominent attorney,
with an office- in the New Tork Lifa
building, has been missing from hit homa
at 8431 Hawthorne avenue since Friday and
hla relative! and friends fear he haB met
with a fatal accident.
Mrt. Andrewa. president of e Omaha
Woman's club, la greatly distressed over
the absence of her huKhand and said Mon
day morning friends had mad a thorough
search for the missing man In the neighbor
hood of Cedar creek, but no trace of him
could be found. Mrs. Andrews fours her
hunband has been accidentally shot or
For two years Mr. Andrewa hns been In
terested In the gravel pit at Ashland and
It has been hl.i habit to make frequent
vlslta there to look after his property.
Harry Brome, who has returned from
Searching for Andrews, said:
"Friday afternoon Mr. Andrews went to
Cedar Creek, where he and Z. P. Hedges
of South Omaha have a gravel pit. They
went to ttio house at the pit occupied by
Mr. Bush and his wife, expecting to stay
all night. Mrs. Bush received a telegram
to come to Omaha and asked Mr. Andrewa
for tome money. He paid her with a check
and Bald he had about U with him In cash.
It sh needed any of that she could have It.
After supper Mr. Andrews put on soma old
clothes, which he kept at the Bush house,
and which he wore on hunting expeditions,
and, taking his 22-caliber rifle, walked down
the track. Nothing was thought of his
not returning until It was late, and then
Hedges and. Bush were not worried, for
Mr. Andrews often went to the home of
Mr. Davis, about half a mile down the
track, and stayed late, and once this spring
stayed all night."
Harry Brome was called from Omaha
Saturday and bloodhounds were secured
and all of the neighbors have joined In the
search, but not a trace of the missing man
has been found.
Mr. Brome cays Mr. Andrews wai In the
best of spirits when he left the Bush houso
and that he cannot conceive of him becom
ing; demented so suddenly. He must have
wandered away, and this seems improbable,
because every avenue leading from Cedar
Creek has been searched and the large
voast of neighbors has thoroughly searched
the neighborhood and all of the bushes
fiong ths road.

Saya Fee Mnat Be Paid Before
Treatment I Given. a
In a recent Issue of The Bee the fact
was mentioned that the Douglas county In

drug habit. This was done under a law
passsed by the last legislature providing for
such action In the case of persona com
plained of for ( the excessive use of In
toxicants, drugs or narcotics.
The law provides that $15 per month
shall be paid by the county from which
a patient Is sent for maintenance. In a
communication to the county commission
ers Monday morning. Clerk of Courts
Broadwell notified the board that Dr.
Greene, superintendent of the Lincoln asy
lum, Insists on having payment In advance
for three months. The commissioners de
ferred action on the matter until they
could be advised as to the provisions of the
Attorney Charles Elgntter, the lpgal
member of the Insanity board, eald re
garding the communication:
"Personally, I had not heard of tha de
mand of Dr. Green for payment In ad
vance. If he asks that $t5 be paid for
rnach patient sent .befor he shall be re
ceived, that means that th counties would
have to advance payment for three months'
treatment and keep. "I seriously question
If the superintendent has the right to make
any such demand under the law. We ehall
take the matter up, with the county author
ities and find out Just what tha rights of
the counties are In the matter of commit
ting these unfortunate people."

8a Abortion Called Charter la
Not Golnir to Prevent tha
City- from Repair.
Difficulty In employing and retaining men
for work on asphalt street repairs has boen
met bv cltv officers, and -from the mayor
down throuith the leeal and engineering de- i
partments an effort Is being made to find
some way to hire men without the red tape
of appointment, confirmation by the council
and approval by the mayor.
With private paving contractors working
on various JobB the demand for experienced
asphalt hands In the city is large and under
th condition th engineering department
has found It almost impossible to keep the
street gangs up to full quota. Under the
confirmation scheme It is necessary for an
idle raker, tamper or laborer to wait from
two to seven days from the time he Is em
ployed by tho city engineer until he can go
to work. With the present demnnd for
workmen of this class he does not wait, but
gets a Job' elsewhere. When the formalities
have been observed by the city officers no
workman is to be had.
Mayor Not to He Daunted.

"Notwithstanding the absurdities In this
bortlon called a charter, we propose to
keep right on repairing our streets. If it

call a special meeting of the council every

the city It Is a hard matter to hold the
men, and when new ones apply for Jobs
hey must be put to work at once. If they
are not, they- will not stand for the loss
of money and will be working eome place

and can hire them. It Is ridiculous that a
city government should be held up, Jam

Assistant City Attorney Herdman says
he thinks. If tested, the city will be found
to have the right to hire such men as It

of all pleasant anticipations of the coming event, and catt over her a
hadow of gloom which cannot be shaken off. Thousands of women
have found that the use of Mother's Friend during pregnancy robs
confinement of all pain and danger, and insures safety to life of mother
and child. This scientific liniment is a god-send to all women at the
time of their most critical trial. Not only does Mother's Friend
carry women safely through the perils of child-birth, but its use
gently prepares the system for the coming event, prevents ''morning
