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 nary surgeon. 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 LINCOLN WANTS LIKE HOME Juvenile Workers nt State Capital Come for Pointers ou De- . tentlon Home.

ONLY ONE VOTE AGAINST IT IN COUNCIL i . Mayor's eio Concerning lentand on l.re Crier Held to Be. Too l.ate to He effective, and Clerk Ordered to Ask foe the Money. Tile city council Tuesday night passed an ordinance compelling all street car com panies operating In Omsha. to sell to school chlMsrn thirty street car tickets for II, the tickets to be honored between the hours of S and 9 n. nt. and 2 and 5 p. m. No age limit Is placed on those who may use such tlcketf, but It Is stipulated that purchasers shall present a certificate of school at tendance when buying the tickets. Council man Davis cast the only dissenting vote, he taking the stand that tho ordinance was c'.nss legislation. When brought up for final reading the r1lnanrr creating the offlc- of meat hotel and restaurant Inspector Was lost. Lack of funds with which to mnlntaln such an office was tho chief objection raised at thla time. Councilman Bridges Introduced another ordinance prohibiting the erection of gas tanks 'or receptacles or changes In those existing within a territory taking In almost the entire city. This ordinance was re ferred to the committee on lighting. Mr. Bridges' last ordinance on the same sub ject was lost In the general committee. The prr-sent contention centers at Twentieth and Center streets, where the Omaha Gas company has two large gas tanks and Is seeking to erect a third. An ordinance Increasing the salary of three elevator conductors and four Janitors In the City hall from $53 to $fi0 per month wae up for first and second readings. It was referred to the coramittee of the whole. 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 the city jail was confirmed. Mr. Donahuo has resigned. City Attorney Burnam advised the coun cil that that body had tho right to order railroads to place and maintain lights it all crossings within the city limits. This matter was brought up at the time of a collision between a street car and freight train on South Thirteenth street.

It was . ex plained that the water company had re fused to make ' the change without an order from the Water board and that the Water board hod refused to take any hand in the matter. The Druid Hill.

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 ; r e. 3 ... V ROTES ON OMAHA SOCIETY In honor of her sister. Mrs. U. J.
