Action I mlrr Truant I.nvr.
Truant Officer Herner yesterday In the
court of Justice Oreene filed an Information
against John K. Lnwrcnce, 1004 Avenue C,
under the state compulsory education law,
charging him with falling to send his 12-year-old
son, Walter, to school. Lawrence,
when brought Into court, denied knowledge
of tho fact that the boy was not at
tending school and claimed that If such
was the case, the lad's mother was re
sponsible for keeping him away. He said
there had been times when he had kept
hla children out of school, but It was when
the weather waa bad or when they lacked
necessary footgenr. He Informed the court
that he considered It an unnecessary bother
to bring him all the way from his work
to the court and It was some time before
he could be made to understand that he
waa under arrest.
The hearing was set for Saturday after
noon and Lawrence waa released on his
own recognizance. Thla Is the first action
brought in the courts by Truant Officer
Herner under this law. Threats of prose
cution have been found sufficient hereto
fore to make parents comply with the law
and Bend their children to school. In this
case. It Is said, threats proved of no avail.

One Place Ylalted Waa Home f
A burglar entered the residence of De
tective Dan Weir at UT13 Avenue II about 1
o'clock yesterday morning, presumably un
aware of the fact that it was the home of
Council Bluffs' most noted Hawkshaw. The
fellow, however, failed to get away with
any of the officer's wealth or other pos
sessions, as he wa frightened away by
Mr. Weir's daughter, who happened to
have fallen asleep In the parlor after the
other members of the family had retired
to rest. The thief entered the parlor
through a window. Miss Weir, who had
remained up to study, had fallen asleep In
front of the stove. She was awakened by
the noise of the burglar opening the door
leading Into the kitchen. She was too
frightened to give the alarm and waited
until she heard the fellow unlock tho back
door, when she called her father. By the
timo, however, that Weir got Into action
the burglar had made himself scarce. His
daughter was much frightened by her ex
perience and It was some time before she
could be calmed down.
At the residence of W. A. Cummlngs. Just
a block from the Weir home, a burglar,
upposed to have been the same as visited
the detective's houao, made a good haul.
The fellow effected an entrance through the
screened window of the dining room. From
Mr. Cummlngs' trouser's pockets he se
cured a pocketbook containing fX5 and from
a Jewel case belonging to Mrs. Cummlngs,
which waa on the bureau, and which he
carried Into the dining room to ransack,
the burglar secured several valuable rings
nnd other articles of Jewelry. Mr. Cum
mlngs Is an engineer on the Union Pacific
and It Is thought the fact that Tuesday
was pay day was known to the thief.

MANY MY LAWS FOR IOWA

CORPORATIONS ARE GENERALLY AFFECTED

ance Concerns and Titles of Mate
Are Altered In Marked
(From a Ptaff Correspondent.)
; That which history will probably pro
nounce the most Important session of the
general assembly ever held In Iowa came
to a close yesterday. To this statement
j the criticism will he offered that a
j session Is frcnuently viewed this way
at its close. When Governor Cummins
I addressed the house yesterdny In presenting
a gavel to Speaker Kendall, he made the
statement that the Thirty-second general
assembly had passed more bills In the In
terests of the people than any other gen
eral assembly In Iowa, and there Is evi
dence In the bills passed to bear out hla
statement before an Impartial tribunal.
Something over 200 bills, eight Joint reso
lutions and one resolution recommending
a pardon were passed. When one has made
a careful Investigation of the bills that have
passed the Iowa legislature and have be
come laws he will not say but that three
months of very active lawmaking have
been Indulged In.
In addition to passing a primary election
law that Is as strong as that of any state
In the union, tho legislature will he known
for Its laws affecting railroads, corpora
tions. Insurance and city governments.
Here Is a record of thnee measures:
Railroad bills, 2.
Affecting government of cities, 32.
Affecting corporations, 15.
Insurance bills, 21.
Itnllrond Dills rasaed.
A little Investigation of the railroad bills
will suffice to show tho thoroughness with
which the legislature took hold of such
matters. Briefly this Is the record on rail
road bills passed:
An nnti-pass bill that prohibits everybody
from riding on passes except officers of the
roads and their employes and excludes at
torneys working for the roads unless they
devote all or the principal part of their
time to the employment of the road.
A 2-cent maximum passenger fare bill
which provides for 2 cents a mile on all
the larger roade, with 2V, on some and 3
cents on others of the smaller roads.
A KOI ti j
..in riiirniiK ItllUOHU COinilllSSIOn
to Investigate the entire suhlect of freight
Ordering the rnllroad commission to put
In force a schedule of Joint freight rates.
Providing against interstate discrimina
tions by empowering the railroad commis
sion to prosecute Buch discriminations be
fore tho Interstate commission.
A bill restricting the number of hours of
continuous employment of men working In
connection with the operation of trains to
sixteen out of twenty-four, to be followed
by ten hours' rest.
Giving the railroad commission power to
regn'ate and fix rates for express com
panies. In addition to these there wore bills re
quiring railroads to put In track scales at
convenient points, requiring them to kill
the weeds along the right-of-way, nnd plac
ing on them the burden of proof as to
whether or not they have cars, besides
numerous other bills, practically all of
which are In the Interests of the common
I.avra Governing; Corporations.
Many of the bills relating to corporations
and controlling corporations also apply to
railroads. Chief among these is the bill
that prohibits nny corporation contributing
money for political campaign purposes. In
addition there are these bills that have be
come law or will become law J,uly 4:
A bill prohibiting combinations of corpor
ations or companies with the view to fixing
the price or controlling the market on
A bill that puts life Into the anti-trust
law and makes It constitutional by chang
ing the penalty so that it will be the same
for all sizes of corporations.
Providing that an original notice of suit
against a corporation can be served upon
any of Its agents, making It Impossible for
a corporation to evade suit by hiding Its
Prohibiting and Axing a penalty for any
corporation publishing a false or exag
gerated statement as to the value of Its
Defining the relation of employer and em
ploye us to the assumption of risk and
providing that when an employe notlnos
the employer that the place where he works
or tlie machinery with which ho works Is
dangero'is he does not assume the risk if
he remains at his employment.
A bill providing against' watered stock by
providing that all stock must either be
paid for In full in cash or else have the
approval of the executive council.
A bill prohibiting bucket-shops and fixing

TRUTH AND QUALITY
appeal to the Well-informed in every walk of life and are essential to permanent suc
cess and creditable standing, therefore we wish to call the attention of all who would
enjoy good health, with its blessings, to the fact that it involves the question of right
living with all the term implies. With proper knowledge of what is liest each hour
of recreation, of enjoyment, of contemplation and of effort may lie made to contribute
to that end and the use of medicines dispensed with generally to great advantage, but
as in many instances a simple, wholesome remedy may be invaluable if taken at the
proper time, the California big Syrup Co. feels that it is alike important to present
truthfully the subject and to supply the one perfect laxative remedy which has won
the appoval of physicians and the world-wide acceptance of the Well-Informed because
of the excellence of the combination, known to all, and the original method of manufac
ture, which is known to the California Fig Syrup Co. only.
This valuable remedy has lxen long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from' Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-informed of the world to be the best of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtless it will always te
called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs and to get its beneficial effects always

plainly printed on the front of every package, whether you simply call for Syrup of
Fins or by the full name Syrup of Figs and Flixir of Senna as Syrup of Figs and
Elixir of Senna is the o"e laxative remedy manufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co. and the same heretofore known by the name Syrup of Figs which has given
satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists throughout
the United States in original packages of one size only, the regular price of which
is fifty cents per bottle.
' Every bottle is sold under the general guarantee of the Company, filed with the
Secretary of Agriculture, at Washington, D. C, that the remedy is not adulterated or
misbranded within the meaning of the Food and Drugs Act, June 30th, 1906.
