that If her churn is tour It will taint the
butter that Is made In It.' The stomach Is
a churn. In the Ktomsch and digestive

churning of butter. Is It not apparent

The evH of a foul stomach Is not alone
the bad taste In the mouth and the foul
breath caused by It, but the corruption of

dentally discharged, the ball tearing away
a part of his hand. The bullet after pass
ing through Dolan's hand rlcochetted
against a heavy oak desk and then struck

Press Dispatch t'onlrmi Private Mea-
sasT Pabllahed Last . Week
la The Baa.
Confirming the report as published In The
Bee last Friday to the effect that the
United States supreme court had denied
the petition of the Omaha Water board
for a writ of certiorari in . Its case for
higher water rates tn Omaha, the Asso
ciated Press brings this dispatch:
WASHINGTON, Dec. ZS.-The supreme
court of the United States today decided
the case of the Omaha Water company
against the city of Omaha, arising out
of the city's effort to reduce the water
rate against the city. .
The proceeding was Instituted by the
company to secure an injunction against
the enforcement of an injunction reducing
the rate on water to consumers below the
price fixed In 1883 when the contract was
first made with the company. That con
tract was for twenty-five years and the
company claimed that for the city to re
duce the rate before Its termination would
involve a breach and therefor violate the
federal constitution. The United States
circuit court for Nebraska sustained the
ordinance, but its . decision was reversed
by the United 'Slates court of appeals for
the Eighth circuit and the city appealed
the case. Chief Justice Fuller announced
the supreme court's opinion, dismissing the
appeal for want of jurisdiction and deny
ing the petition for a writ of certiorari.
Letters Between Hasband aad . Mrs.
Ritchie Not Bneaa;s to Con
vtneo the aladate.
Judge Redlck has refused to grant the
divorce asked for by Mrs. Esther Ducker,
who asked for a decree of separation from
Louis C. Ducker, a farmer living ' near
Florence. The basis of the petition was a
number of letters which Mrs. Duoker
charged her husband wrote to Mrs. Anna
L. Ritchie, a neighbor. Some of the
epistles were couched. In endearing terms,
and Mrs. Ducker contended they shewed a
relationship between her husband and Mrs.
Ritchie, which would entitle her to a de
cree. Judge Redlck, while holding that
some of the letters which had been Inter
cepted were genuine, they did not give
Mrs. Ducker legal grounds for the divorce.

, Kaew of It Year A aw, When
Conditions Were Mack
Mayor Dahlman was at his desk Monday
morning after being at home several days
suffering with a cold which for a time
threatened pneumoniae
Enforcement of the Sunday law and the
attitude of the public, all of which has de
veloped since the mayor became 111, Is In
teresting him.
"If these people don't look out they will
tie up Omaha tighter than any town In the
United States. There Is only one way out
of the present situation as far as I can
see and that is for all parties concerned
to agree to a reasonablo enforcement of
certain laws. I am placed in a position
where I can lake no Independent action.
The Sackett law leaves the officers men
tioned In it no alternative but to enforce
all laws regardless of public sentiment or
personal desire. When my attention Is
specifically called to any law I must order
Its enforcement or bi prepared to surren
der my office under an order of the su
preme court.
"Those people who do not desire the Sun
day law enforced can work for its repeal
or modification by the next leglslatute, or
they can arrange with the official charged
with the enforcement of the Sackett law
to Ignore complaints which may be filed
under It. That law as It now stands gives
the governor of the state full control of
the enforcement of the laws of every com
munity, because he alone can ignore a
complaint that the law is not enforced, and
any person, no matter how Irresponsible,
can make trouble for any mayor, chief of
police or prosecuting attorney who tries to
use his judgment as to the enforcement of
any law on the statute books.
Why Did They WaltT
'This matter of closing the Arcade is an
other step In the same direction. For two
years the police judge has known of condi
tions existing at the Arcade. According to
evidence before the Board of Fire and Po
lice Commissioners the conditions were
worse a year ago than they are now, but
the closing system was not the popular
move a year ago that It is now. Why are
not other places, equally disreputable, In
terfered with? The beginning at the Ar
cade only means that all such houses must
be closed because the people will not stand
for discrimination in the enforcement of
laws. Then when this is done where will
the women go?
"Some of these ceoole are coins: to keeo
nagging and nagging along until they kllr
Omaha. To make a business town business
must be done, and some business must be
done on Sunday, but I can do nothing un
less I want to leave this office under Im
peachment charges and I am not going to
do that."
Charse. Made that They Play In
- Pool Rooms In Sooth
The probation authorities have decided
to investigate alleged charges that
gambling by boys Is being permitted In a
number of South Omaha pool halls and
cigar stores. The facts were brought out
In the case of Frank Powers and Ell
Michael, two boys, who were before the
juvenile court charged with risking their
money .in games of chance. Their stories
indicated that gambling Is a common prac
tice among the boys who frequent the cigar
stores and pool halls and the probation
offlcors will start a campaign to put a stop
to it.
Clldle Miller, a 18-year-old girl, and

J. A. Man roe Says Union Paclfle
Ashe Rale In Lnnafeyer
J. A. Munroe,' freight traffic manager of
the Union Pacific, has returned from a
four weeks' trip through the east. Including
points In New England and New Tork
state. He also attended the hearing of the
lumbermen's complaint against the Harrl
man and Hill lines on lumber from the
Pacific, northwest.
"We are asking for a raise In these rates
because we cannot afford to haul the lum
ber longer at the old rates." said Mr. Mun
roe. "The present lumber rates were put
In effect In 1893 when the business was an
Infant Induatry and we wished to encour
age It. Conditions are also entirely dif
ferent nowadays than they were then.
Then the volume of business on the west
ern roads moved to the west and the cars
were returned to the east empty. Now It
is different.' The balance of trade has
changed as the west has been built up so
that when we bring a car of lumber from
the northwest we have 'to retiSrn that car
back empty and cannot afford to do It at
the old rates."
D. C. Bradford of the Bradford-Kennedy
company and Mr. Miller of the Updike
Grain company were witnesses at Ihe hear
ing, which closed last Thursday. Time will
be given for the submission of briefs by
both sides and the case will then be taken
under advisement by the commission.
B. L I xi max, general passenger agent
of the Union Pacific, has returned from
Chicago, where he has been for the last
several weeks lining up different affairs
for the passenger department.
When asked If he thought the other
western lines would follow the Inititative
of the Wabash In putting In a second class
passenger rate Mr. Lomax said:
"I do not think so. The Wabash has
threatened for some time to put that
rate to St. Louis Into effect if the Omaha
Chicago roads did not withdraw the .3
party rate between Omaha and Chicago."
The second class passenger rate Is not
used by lines of the Western Passenger
association except on through tickets to
New York or San Francisco.
In reference to the motor cars which the
Union Pacific Is operating on several of
the branch . lines Mr. Lomax said they
were all doing a good business and were
making lots of revenue' for the company.
"Some of the lines are still objecting to
applying the 2-cent passenger rate to Inter
state business, although most of them
are In line," add Mr. Lomax. "The sum
of the locals from Detroit to Chicago Is
$5.30 and still the Michigan Central Insists
on collecting )d on through tickets to the
Railway Notes and Personals.

An experienced shopper tells us that she can do
twice as much shopping in the forenoon as in the after
noon, with one-half the fatigue. ;
She says there are no crowds then; that she has no
difficulty in obtaining a seat in the street cars; that she is
waited upon more promptly at all the stores and that the
clerks are more courteous and take more pains to show
goods, because they, like herself, are not tired at that time
of the day.
Knowing this to be true, we suggest to all ladies able
to do so, to try this plan and do their shopping in the
early part of the day.
Action of Nevada Governor Is Ap
pro-red by a Man from Reno
. as All Rla-ht.
B. C. Harris of Reno, Nev., was a visitor
at the office of the mayor Monday,
'Conditions at Goldfield are somewhat
overdrawn," said Mr. Harris. "I have been
there recently and from all I could see
there was no Immediate danger of fight
ing; but I think Governor Sparks was fully
justified in asking for federal troops. You
know we have no state militia and there
was no way of telling when hot-headed
miners or mine owners would make the
worst kind of trouble. That time has
surely passed now and no one familiar with
the conditions expects fighting."

"I like Salt Lake City fine, just fine, and
the people there have certainly given me a

on a visit, no matter where he comes from

Mr. Smith admitted he was a little shy

"Are you guilty or not guilty of being a

"Not guilty," responded Mr. Smith.
