Yoa have heard that lorae foods famish fat,
other foods make muscle, and still others are
tissue building and heat forming.
You know that most foods have one or more
of these elements, but do you know that no
food contains them all in such properly balanced
proportions as a good soda cracker 7
The United States Government report shows
that soda crackers contain less water, are richer
in the muscle and fat elements, and have a much
higher per cent of the tissue building and heat
forming properties than any article of food made
That is why Uneeda Biscuit should
form an important part of every meal. They
represent the superlative of the soda cracker, aU
their goodness and nourishment being brought
from the oven to you in a package that is proof
against air, moisture and dust the price being
too entail to mention.

NIP MECHAN FOR BURLGARY
The fire alarm system In South Omaha
has deteriorated to such an extent that It
Is considered totally useless. This condi
tion of affairs has existed for some time,
but attention wa forcibly called to t
fact Thursday, when the keyless box
Twenty-fourth and N streets waa pulled
four times to send In an alarm for the firs

good start and had a high wind been blow

work on the part of Chief Oarratt and hi
men that the loas waa kept down as low as
Officials of the Are department and tha
fire and police commission have been aware
for a long time that tha system was not
what It should be. Efforts have been made
by tha electrician of-' the department to
keep the boxes and lines In repair, but the
boxes are old style, are worn out and the
wires are hardly fit for Junk. About fifteen
months ago the alarm boxes were given an
overhauling and some new wire waa strung.
This helped a little for the time being, but
now the system Is utterly worthless.

LONDON, Nov. 4. A dispatch to the

the refusal of some of the members of a
native procession to desist from wor
shiping the idols they carried, seized the
Idols and declined to restore them to their
owners. Thereupon the Infuriated pro

John Median of Bouth Omaha opened an
other chapter In his career last night by
landing In Jail. Detective Dnimmy and
Maloney were sent out to Investigate what
Is known at the Jail aa a "plant," on which
some one had given them a tip. This col
lection of plunder was located at Twelfth
and Corby streets. There had iieen hint
of such a place before In that neighborhood,
near the tankllrie buildings. Several cans
of paint were found and part of a caddy
of tobacco. It is thought this plunder waa
once much larger and that a good deal of
the original theft has been disposed of. It
waa probably the work of a car breaker.
On a former occasion when Mechtn waa
arrested he had a number of oeals for
freight cara and tha nipper for closing
However, this waa not the case 'n which
he was directly Implicated. He was wanted
for entering Harry Gross's pawnshop, SIS
North Sixteenth street, last Monday night.
From this place there waa taken 1300 worth
of property, which In detail consisted of 17

lost by Gross last Monday night. His
watch was then examined and It also waa
