The Board of Fir" and PolP-e commission ers met last night and held a formal trial, In which James Kracek of Albright, who runs a saloon at the corner of Railroad avenue and Polk street, was charged with selling liquor to Charles Whaley, a minor. On the conclusion of the evidence the board took the case under advisement and ordered the chief of police to close up the place pending a decision by the board. The evidence, was to the effect that the saloonkeeper had knowingly sold the liquor and had on several occasions heen warned by the mother of tha boy and forbidden . to- sell him any liquor. The proprietor made no denial of the matter; but mentioned some extenuating cl.cumstances and prom ised reform. The board expressed no Judg ment In this case, but again stated em phatically that selling to minors would not be tolerated under any circumstances and that children under age must be kept out of saloons.

He and John Hogan were arrested after a long chase and some shooting by Chief John Biiggs Wednesday evening. The chief arrested them on suspicion, having really nothing against the men except their bungling attempts to escape notice. They were given such a searching at the station that Madden became frightened and broke down. He said he had a trifling quarrel with his wife and had pulled up and left Chicago with Hogan, persuaded by the latter'a glowing account of the money they oould make and the good times in San Francisco. He got as far as Denvesrt where he repented and sent HO back to hla wife and started on his return. He begged the chief to let him write to hla wife and In this letter he plead for forgiveness and promised any kind of penance. Before the chief he sobbed over the story of his treatment of his wife end prayed the of ficer to keep him until word came from her. The other man seemed almost as much affected, but said he waa guilty of no crime, and had asked his friend to go with him only aa a companion. Ead af Slarqaardt Episode.

At the age of puberty most children are afflicted with pimples aod many with serious akin eruptions. At this particular period in a child's ex istence nature Is going through a trans ition which Is of vital importance to the child and the parent. rimples on the face of a child removed by Stuart's Calcium Wafers. The organs of the child all become larger. The skin begins to grow hair, the glands and cells of the skin apparently become stronger and larger. Impurities occur In the system and poisons enter the blood and are thrown off usually from the face in the form of pimplts. Mothers should zealously guard the child against serious blood impurities at this time. Our grandmothers gave i-ar-saparllla, Bassafras root, cream of tartar and sulphur every spring. These simple remedies did a good work, but silence has discovered the most powerful ano beneficial blood purifier to be Calcium Sulphide. Stuart's Calcium Wafers are prepared after the most modern method of con veying the full strength of Calcium Sul phide to the blood. They lose none of It through evaporation and chemical chai.ge like most calcium sulphide remedies sold today. Stuart's Calcium Wafers also contain Quassia, Golden Seal and Eucalyp tus, all known purifiers of great power. Combined with these Ingredients is a pure vegetable alterative and laxative which, when the other Ingredients clear tne blood from poison and decay, throw oTf 'Jits Impure matter from the system through the bowels and in a natural, easy r. inner. Stuart's Calcium Wafers should be In every household, and used by the parent for the benefit of the child. They are harmless, promote normal appetite and di gestion, beautify the skin and enrich the blood so necessary to the rapid growth or the child. Go to your druggist. Ask his opinion of Calcium Sulphide as the Stuart process presents It to the blood. He will sell you a package for CO cents, or tend ui your name and address and we will send you a trial package by mail free. Ad dress F. A. btusrt Co., 171 aUuart Kid , Marshall. Mich.

"A Little Indian Trading Village." OMAHA. Dec. 4. To the Kdltor of The Ilee: The Bee said Friday morning that when Kev. H. W. Kuhns organized tho Lutheran church here in 1858, Omaha was "a little Indian trading village." This Is a mistake. Omaha at that time was quite a town. It was about four years of age. I was the nominal head of the Herndon House Hotel company, which waa being completed. It waa a fine building for that early day. The better part of It Is now the Union Pacific headquarters building. As a matter of fact, Omaha was never a ilule Indian trading village at all, except when White Cow, the famous orator of the Omahas, would come down from the Black bird hills reservation on my invitation with nis family to pay mo a visit. He did some trading then by swapping short orations .or plugs of tobacco. OEORQE L. MILLEK. -AB0R IN THE NEW CHARTER Oeleicates to Hevlslon Committee lleDOrt to Central Labor I'nlon.

The debute will be on the Bubject: "Would It be advisable to prohibit the courts from entertaining any action against an organization of employers or employes, a member or official thereof, for boycott, blacklist, strike, lockout or peaceful picket ing?" The society wants the local union's opinion as to whether any of the changes suggested are steps In the right direction for the correction of the abuses of the In junction, and If they would be more satis factory than even the democratic demand of Jury trial In cases of direct contempt.
