the speed ordinance, for a writ of habeas
corpus. The men were fined $50 and costs
Monday by V. W. Sutherland, a Justice
of the peace appointed as special Judge
by the mayor to hear the case. The mayor
held that M. Zentmeyer, the regular police
Judge, was not qualified to sit on the case,
as the city attorney had filed an affidavit
with him stating that Zentmeyer had been
acting as legal representative for the rail
road company here and carried a pass.
After hearing the evidence Introduced,
Judge Reeder discharged the prisoners,
hoMIng that the single affidavit filed with
the mayor was not sufficient to disqualify
the regular police Judge and therefore the
action of the special police Judge was. void.
Glynn and Peterson were Immediately re
arrested on the same charge and the trial
set for December 15. They furnished $300
bonds for appearance, with E. F. Folds,
as surety. Police Judge Zentmeyer ten
dered his resignation to the mayor as a
result of the trouble.

That Scott's Emulsion
should act so quickly and
satisfactorily in all cases
of lost flesh and continued
wasting is not surprising
when its food value is un
derstood. With pure Nor
wegian cod liver oil; hypo
phosphites of lime and
soda and glycerine, there
is combined in Scott's
. Emulsion the best' ele
ments of nourishment and
strength building known
to medical science. Any
physician will tell you this.
The use of these ingredi
ents in the proper propor
tions; the employment of
only the purest grade of
each, and to combine them
perfectly is the secret of
the success of Scott's
Emulsion. You will not
find a more certain way to
stop waste, build flesh and
strength and supply nour
ishment than through
Scott's Emulsion. i
