As a result of the downpour of rain last
evening, Indian creek went on one of Its
periodical rampagea and overflowed its
banks at the Northwestern bridge. Broad
way from Tenth street to the tracks of the
Illinois Central was badly flooded and the
city will be called upon to remove the
usual amount of mud and debris. Al
Kighth, Ninth and Tenth streets the water
In the creek rose to the bottom of the
bridges, but did not leave the banks. The
city had the men of the sewer gang at the
bridges on these three streets to keep the.
driftwood and other floating debris rhov
ing and this prevented the formation of
dams at these points.
Mayor Macrae made a tour of Inspection
along the creek during the high Water and
discovered a man said to be James Malone,
an engineer on the Nortweatern road, busily ,
engaged In dumping great chunks of refuse
from the back yard of hla residence be
tween Kighth and Ninth streets In the
oreek so that It might be carried away
by the flood. It was stated last night that
an information would probably be filed
against Malone, and Mayor Macrae an

Since the bounty of 10 cents a head
offered by the Board of County Super
visors went Into effort on April 1, 10,000
pf the little animals have beefi killed In
Pottawattamie county, stated County
Auditor Cheyne yesterday. The Issuing
of so many warrants for the claims for
the bounty and keeping record of them
haa entailed a great deal of extra work
on the auditor and hie force.
Yeaterday John Gelger, justice of the
peace in Mlnden. sent in (07 claims, mak
ing a totsl of 2,109 claims which have
passed through his handa. during the
month of April. Justice Gelger's com
mission of 2 cents a gopher on all bounty
claims certified to by him smounted to
$42.18 for the month.
The fact that 10,000 gophers were killed
during April, the bounty , on which
amounted- to $1,000, indicates that the
county will pay out aeveral thousand
dollars for the destruction of these little
pests before the season closes this "year.

Complaints of freight trains blockading
crossings longer than ths time allowed
under the city ordinances caused the city
council recently to notify the railroads that
the ordinance must be complied with.
Especial complaint was made of the North
western at the Broadway crossing. The
notices evidently did not hsve the desired
effect, aa last evening while Mayor Macrae
was Investigating flood conditions In the
vicinity of the Northwestern bridge he
noticed a long freight train blockading the
Broadway crossing. 'After five minutes had
expired and there seemed no Inclination on
the part of the trainmen to move the cars
so ss to permit street . cars to psss he
called on the engineer of the train td open
the crossing. The engineer replied that
he had to obey orders from the "rear end.--Mayor
Macrae then went In search of the
man In charge of the train, but failed to
locate him. After sixteen minutes the
mayor succeeded n having the train split
in two In order that the motors might
cross. An offiier waa detailed to learn the
name of the man In charge of the train
and at police headquarters It wss stated
last night that arrests would follow, as
the city authorities are determined the ordi
nance shall be enforced.

Judge Beer by -Itsjrti2
Progressive Men and Women t'onsloVt
it a Means to .National Temperance.
We hnve recenly published a ntumher ol
articles on the food value of beer, the Im
portance of the brewing Industries an t
factor In our national wealth, our nation
revenues and the use of beer Itself as a
means to temperance and sobriety.
We believe that sooner or later beer wll
be recoanlsed st Its true worth, aa a foo
beverage of splendid tonic effect and hlgr
nourishing value. Noted men and womer
of this country are already alive to th
situation and besides Miss Ptioba .'ouslni
snd Dr. Joseph Felsler Of NorthWeeterr
university, many othere of note give thill
endorsement o beer as' a means to nsjjona.
Miss Cousins, for a quarter of a century
tbe most eminent woman kuffrage advo
cate in the west. Mid lit a recent inter
view: "There never will be a law thai
will compel prohibition, and the senalbl
thing for the Woman's Christian Temper
nnae I'nlon to do Is to aid In the substi
tution of mild, nourishing drinks, like 'beer,
which seldom produce drunkenness. A
prominent army officer who served In th
southwest, operated canteen at three dif
ferent posts. He made the canteens so sc
reptsnle to the soldiers, who found beet
satisfying their demands, that he actually
ran all tho low dives of the aurroundlni
neighborhood out df business."
Pabst Peer meets all the demands for
mild, healthful, refreshing beverage suet
ss Miaa Cousins suggests. It Is made ol
the exclusive Pabnt eight-day malt, choic
est hops and pure water. Kight-day malt,
which Is the only perfect malt, give
Pabst Keer its auprrlnr food value and
richness. Strong Irt nourishment the body
requires, it Is refreshing and satisfying.
Perfect In-age, purity and strength, abao
lutly clean and containing only three an
one-half per cent of alcohol, Pabst Beer li
the Ideal temperance beverage. No othei
Is so healthful.
