VETERINARY LAW HELD VOID
Statate Enacted by Last Lralslatare
Pronounced Invalid by Judge
Leslie if County Court.
The law enacted by the last legislature
to regulate veterinary surgeons Is uncon
stitutional, according to a decision rendered
by County Judge IoMie yesterday after
noon In the case of the state against Dr..
l"i. D. Turner. The case was filed by Dr.
Ramacclotti as a lest of the law. The
decision will be of interest because several
other prosecutions . hinged on the outcome
of this case. It is said It may be carried
to the supreme court fot a final test.
The law which Is declared bad provides
that.no person engaged In the practice of
veterinary surgery shall assume the title,
veterinary surgeon, or any analogous title
or any degree conferred ' by a recognized
college of veterinary surgery unless he
has first secured a license from the state
board. Tho law did not prohibit unlicensed
;urgeons from practicing, but merely pre
vented them from holding themselves out
as such or from using any title or degree
In connection with their profession.
Judge Leslie held that this was . not a
proper application -of pollco power of the
i'tate and wns an Improper abridgement
of the personal liberty of citizens. He
pointed out that the law made It a crime
for a person who was unlicensed to tell
I anotier person that he had received a de-
gree of veterinary surgeon from a college,
even though it was true. A. W. Jefferls,
who attacked the validity of the luw, also
contended It was against public policy and
Intended to protect titles.
Dr. Turner has practiced In Omaha six
teen years. He was a student at Oxford,
a graduate of the Edinburgh Veterinary
college and a graduate In organic and In- 1
...n,l,- i.hnml,lrv In :l. I.onilon Mrhnnl I
Because he was not registered the law
prohibited him from hanging his diploma
on ' tho wall of his office or even telling
anyone he had a degreo or' was a veteri
His specllic offense was In
sending out a bill with the words "Dr.
Turner, graduate veterinarian," on it. He
was.urrested for uslug the title a!r his
na'mV. judge Leslie' said he thought a
law that provided no veterinarian ..should
practice without registering wovjld bo
sound, but, he did not think the legislature
had the right to deprive a person of tho
right -to usem, title or degree that had been
conferred upon him. i

Mayor Too Slow.'
A concurrent resMutlon regarding tho
Leo Gfler alleged shortage was brought
up, the document having been returned
from the mayor's otllgo without that of
ficer's signature. In view of the fact that
tho mayor retained the resolution longer
than forty-eight hours without either sign
ing or returning it unsigned, the resolution
was declared valid and effective by de
fault on the mayor's part. The city clerk
will now make a formal demand on Mr.
Grlcr and the United States Fldolity and
Guaranty company for, the amount of
J3.173.SS, the amount of alleged shortage.
The mayor's appointment of John Quinn
to succeed Jack Donahue as engineer at

in view of pending litigation over the

The Children Enjoy
Life out of doors and oat of the games which they play and the enjoyment
which they receive and the efforts which they make, comes the greater part of that
healthful development which is so essential to their happiness when grown. When
a laxative is needed the remedy which is given to them to cleanse and sweeten and
strengthen the internal organs on which it acts, should be such as physicians would
sanction, because its component ports are known to be wholesome and the remedy
itself free from every objectionable quality. The one remedy which physicians and
parents, well-informed, approve and recommend and which the little ones enjoy,
because of its pleasant flavor, its gentle action and Its beneficial effects, is -Syrup
of Figs and for the same reason it is the only laxative which should be used by
fathers and mothers.
Syrup of Figs is the only remedy which acts gently, pleasantly and naturally
without griping, irritating, or nauseating and which cleanses the system effectually,
without producing that constipated habit which results from the use of the old
time cathartics and modern imitations, and against which the children should be so
carefully guarded. If you would have them grow to manhood and womanhood,
strong, healthy and happy, do not give them medicines, when medicines are not
needed, and when nature needs assistance in the way of a laxative, give them only
the simple, pleasant and gentle Syru of Figs.
Its quality is due not 'only to the excellence of the combination of the laxative
principles of plants with pleasant aromatic syrups and Juices, but also to our
original method of manufacture and as you value the health of the little ones, do
not accept any of the substitutes which unscrupulous dealers sometimes offer to
increase their profits. Please to remember, the full name of the Company
CALIFORNIA FIO SYRUP CO.-is printed on the front of every package. la
