DROPS HIS MONEY IiTrESORT
J. Freeaey Pays Toll with All His
Cask for Short Social
J. Freeney of Stockholm, became tired
of rural existence and started out Satur
day to satisfy bis longing for more excit
ing scenes. He arrived In Omaha at 4
o'clock p. m. Sunday, and at precisely
6 o'clock he reported to the police that
somewhere between Stockholm and Ninth
street and Capitol avenue he had bocome
separated from all of his ready cash, $65,
which he carried In his hip pocket.
Upon being closely questioned, he con
fided to Captain Dunn that upon reaching
Omaha he perhaps was a little color blind,
but at any rate had become good friends
with Verna Clark and had spent a por
tion of the afternoon at her residence on
Capitol avenue. As Vema's gsests have
been unfortunate heretofore In the matter
of losing their money, the police are
looking for her In the hope that she may
have some theory on the matter.
Verna Clark's affairs occupied a consider
able portion of the time of Judge Craw,
ford Monday morning, as a complaint was
filed against ber by HYeeney and a warrant
Issued for her arrest. A ball bond of 150,
which had been given last Saturday by At
torney James Kelkenny when she was ar
rested on the charge of being a suspicious
character, was ordered forfeited by Judge
Crawford when she failed to appear Mon
day morning for trial and hopes are enter
tained by the police that she has mad her
last appearance In Omaha.

there are many ways of making a living
besides being a life Insurance president, a
prizefighter or a hodrarrler, is shown by
the following collection of unusual occupa

have come to notice none Is more peculiar
than the business of "Dr. Cockrtach" of
Louisville. For a stipulated annual consid
eration the "Doctor" contracts to keep
one's premises rid of cockroaches. He does
not whistle them away like the Pied Piper
of Hamelin. but at regular Intervals he
comes around with queer looking tools and
mysterious powders, by means of which he
persuades the cockroaches to go.

sent from home at other times. She also
has a hospital for sick birds and teaches
backward songsters their mission In the
world. While It might seem that this young
woman is making small use of her time,
she really knows all about birds and their
troubles and is able to make a competence
from her work.

A novel way of making a living Is to do
other people's reading for them. In the
qld days when a learned man desired to
write a scientific book It was a labor of
years. Not so nowaday in th United

desires to perpetuate his fame by writing
a book on that subject. What does he do?

of the particular dlaease recorded In th
medical journals of all lands. The busy
man thea goes hastily over this collection,

THIS COUNTRY'S COAL LANDS
May Be Exhaaeted la Tvro Haadred
Tears Area la th
M. R. Campbell of the United States
geological survey, during an address be
fore the . National Geographic society at
Hubbard Memorial hall in Washington, D.
C, predicted that all the coal in the United
States will have been consumed and ex
hausted In 2U0 years, If not sooner. He
said he did not care to go on record as an
alarmist, but Inasmuch as he has' made a
i thorough and minute Investigation and In
j spectlon of the various coal lands through
out the country, ana nas eareruuy pre
pared statistics, he is satisfied the ques
tion Is a serious one and worthy of Im
perative steps toward remedying the con
ditions. He suggested congressional action,
with a view of conserving coal mines on
! public lands and preventing corporations
Mr. Campbell bases his prediction of a
coal shortage or famine, as follows: "There
are approximately 400,000 square miles of
actual coal In the entire United States at
the present time. This constitutes ap
proximately 2.300,000,000,000 tons of coaL To
give some Idea of the condensed size of
this amount of coal, if It were all put to
gether in one place it would make a cube
bound to Increase. Factories and manufac
turing Industries are the second largest con
sumers of coal. Necessity will cause them
seven and a half miles high and wide. Last
year the consumption of coal In the United
to Increase and use more coal. The next
States was 1.800,000,000 tons, and despite
this yearly consumption. If it did not in
crease each year In the future, there would
be enough coal to last more than 1.000 years.
"I have reason to believe," the lecturer
continued, "that the consumption will
steadily Increase each year. Coal was first
used In this country In 181$, and In the next
ten years 33,000,000 tons were consumed.
The next ten years those figures were more
than doubled, and every decade since they
have been doubled, until they have reached
the mammoth proportions - stated. The
railroads at the present day are the
largest consumers of coal of any Industry.
Last year 106,000,000 tons were used in
running locomotives. It Is a known fact
that the railroads will become more, ex
tensive, necessarily putting more locomo
tives in operation, and this consumption Is
largest consumption is for domestic use
as fuel. An Increase in this form will de
pend upon the population, and It Is un
nessary to state that the population will
increase aa the years go by. Therefore,
taking into consideration the amount of
coal there Is In the United States and an
approximate estimate of the yearly con
sumption and the rate It has Increased
since 1816, I will not give coal more than
200 years to exist. It Is possible that It
will be exhausted In ISO years. At any
rate urgent steps should be taken to adopt
some plan by which the life of coal will
The largest coal area, he said. Is In Mon
tana, there being 47,000 square miles of the
mineral in that state. The next largest
area is In Texas, then Illinois, and then
North Dakota. Despite the amount of area
In the west, he stated that region Is not
a large coal producing region. He ex
plained the situation by saying that. con
siderable of the region has not been worked
.and some of tbe veins have not been dis
According to Mr. Campbell, the beds In
the west are much thicker than In tha
east. In the latter region a bed thicker
than ten or thirteen feet is seldom found,
but In the west some of the beds are as
thick as 100 feet. However, be expects the
coal regions of the west, especially in Mon
tana, North Dakota and Colorado, to de
velop In richness. Although there Is evi
dence of considerable coal In Alaska, what
products he has examined were of a poor
grade, and he does not expect much from
the region In the future as a coal producer.
John . Miller.
John 8. Miller of Chicago Is not. as is
erroneously stated, the chief counsel of the
Standard Oil company, says the Washing
ton Herald. The lawyer who holds
that responsible position Is a Mr. Elliot,
who used to represent a Pennsylvania dis
trict In congress, and whose offices are tn
the Standard Oil building In New York.
But Mr. Miller is now the chief trial lawyer
In the Standard's employ. It was he who
so conducted the defense of the Beef trust
prosecutions managed by former Attorney
General Moody as to gain for thet client
the now fc.nious "Immunity bath." Ap
parently Mr. Miller has performed for the
Standard Oil company a service quite as
Important and of a similar character aa
that which he performed for the Beef trust.
In that he has raised the point that certain
parliamentary motion adopted In the sen
ate affecting the railroad rate bill, which
declares the Standard OH pipe lines to be
common carriers, have opened the way for
an "immunity bath" for tbe giant oil com
pany. High circles in Washington are palpi
tant with rumors concerning the interest
ing point as to who gave Mr. Miller the
first hint as to the possible means nf escape
of the Standard In tbe way indicated. The
public would be shocked should some of
the name connected with these rumors be
published. The fact seems to be that Vr.
Miller made the discovery himself, without
the aid of any member of either branch of
congress or anybody els connected in sny
way with tbe government. Some of the
big lawyers of the senate are strongly in
clined to believe that Mr. Miller's conten
tion will be upheld by the courts, and thus
the Standard will escape all of the serious
Indictments brought against It months ago
by a federal grand Jury at Chicago. These
senators .also say that if this shall prove
to be the case Mr. Miller's fee as special
counsel probably will be one of the biggest
ever paid to an American lawyer.

Mr. John Oven, of Chicago, 111.,
who was a fireman and is now an
engineer, is very grateful to
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey for his
restoration to health.
He was laid up with severe pains
in body and limbs and had almost
given up hope of recovery.
He was cured by Duffy's Pure
Malt Whiskey, after all other medi
cines had failed, and recommends
it to all those who suffer as he did.
"I have been a fireman and had pains In
my back and limb so bad I had to give up
work, aa it Is bad business for a man who
has excruciating pains. I tried several so
called remedies, but with no improvement,
as It is a very stubborn sickness to cur.
At last I used Duffy's Malt Whiskey, which
a kind neighbor gave me, and It worked
miracles on me. After taking four bottles
I was able to resume work.
"I tm very grateful to Duffy's Pure Malt
Whiskey, as I have been promoted from
fireman to engineer since my recovery.
Had I not been cured this could not have
taken place. I would not be without
Duffy's as a medicine, no matter what it
cost. You may publish this testimonial all
you wish. "JOHN OVEN. 255 Ogden St.,
Chicago, 111., May 31. 180C.
