"Sure." replied the Captain. "Go ahead."
"Well. I sold my place a few days ago,
' my homestead In South Dakota, and came
lown to Bonesteel to see what I could see.
I puf most of my money In the bank but
kept out about 175 to have a good time on.
Vou know they are a trifle lively up In
Bonesteel, and after , I had hern out a

t, and drew the old hand of aces against
flush. I wouldn't throw down the aces
until I had bet all my pile and a check
for $188 beside. Well I lost, and when I
sot out and cooled off I made up my mind
i hat the gang had played me a skin game.
I went to the bank next morning and drew

When Horsey sighted the member of the

gramsThe practice of the Hawkeye sriuad
tonight was as enthusiastic as last night
In spite of the drizzling rain that fell dur
ing the entire afternoon. Coach Chalmera
and Assistant Coaches Eby and Warner
worked with the squad for two hours.
There was no scrimmage work, tho team
first spending all of Its time in running
signals. The hospital list was closed last
night and there were no additions tonight.
Iowa will have as strong a team aa it
can possibly get together when it meets
the Gophers In Minneapolis and from the
spirit with which the men have entered
the work this week there is every prospect
that the score will be a close one. The
entire squad has shown a phenomenal In
crease in speed, both In lining up and In
running off the plays. If the present speed
can be maintained or Increased it is be
lieved here that Minnesota will have a hard
time in stopping the weight of the Hawk-eyes.

mutual consent." he said. "It was largely
tentative. It was entered into under great
pressure and before we were really in con
dition to act Intelligently In the matter. I
was personally against the letting of a con
tract at all. My Idea was that so long as
the government was to Install the plant for
this purpose that it should be run by the
commission. After the contract was finally
entered Into 1 received word from the Isth
mus that things were working more satis
factorily, supplies coming in better and
altogether thy were getting matters Into
shape so that they could handle It for the
present. Mr. Stevens advised to hold off
about the contrart. I took Mr. Markel
down with me and after looking the ground
over with him I proposed to him that we
call the entire contract off. as the only rea
son It was made was the apparent urgency,
and inasmuch as it was based on guess
work, neither he nor I could tell whether he
would lose money or make it under the
terms agreed upon. Mr. Markel was very
nice and agreed to waive the thirty days'
notice under which I. could terminate the
contract at any time."

CHEAP GAS AND POLICE FORCE
Two Matters I'rgrd by Executive Com
mittee of the Omaha Com
Cheaper gas for Omaha came under dis
cussion at the meeting of the executive
committee of the Omaha Commercial club
Tuesday. The matter was called to the
attention of the committee by a communi
cation of F. M. Oregg of the Cleveland !
Street Lighting company, offering gas for !
11 per 1,000 cubic feet. It was the sense I
of the committee that this price ought .
to furnish sufficient profit, and a resolu- I
tlan waa passed to suggest to the city j
council that such action ought to be taken i
aa would give the city $1 gas. I
Another resolution was passed that the .
city council ought to find some legal way
whereby the city police force might be put

Rheumatism is usually worse ia Winter because of the cold and damp-,
ness and other changed conditions ol tne climate, ine occasional twinges
of the disease that are felt during the warmer weather are changed
inir oains 'the muscles become inflamed and swollen, the nerves get
excited, the bones ache, and Rheumatism, the terror of winter, takes
sion of the system. Then the sufferer turns to the liniment bottle,
woolen clothes, the favorite plaster or some home remedy, in an effort t
relief. But Rheumatism is not a trouble that can be rubbed away or drawn
out with a plaster; these things relieve the pain and reduce the inflammation,
but do not reach the real cause of the trouble, and at the next exposure an- i
other attack comes on. Rheumatism is caused by a sour, acid condition ol
the blood. The refuse matter and bodily impurities which should be carried
off through the channels of nature have been left in the system because of
indigestion, wealc Kidneys, torpid Liver and a general sluggish condition of
the system. These impurities sour and form uric acid, which is absorbed by
the blood and distributed to the different muscles, joints, nerves and bones,
causing the painful symptoms of Rheumatism. S. S. fc. goes to the root of
tne trouDie ana cures Kneumausm oy cleansing
the blood. It neutralizes the acids and filters
tii.-ra out of the circulation and sends a stream of
pure, rich blood to all parts of the body. Then
the pains cease, the inflammation subsides, the
nerves are quieted, every symptom of the disease
casses awav. ana the cure is permanent. S. S. S.
