Just at the dawn of the new year comn
the announcement of another big office
building for Omaha. ' The : Chicago at
North western ralhond will bulla a head
quarter building to accommodate the gen
eral offlcra of the line west of the river.
"Plan' Jiave alrenay been submitted to
our eastern official for a general head
quarter building In Omaha," laid Frank
"Walter, general manager. "Wo shall also
have a- new Incoming freight house. Ac
Cordlng'.to present plan wa shall expend
from $100,000' to $200,000 on the headquarter
and about 1100.000 on the freight depot.
"The new freight house will be located
on Davenport street between Thirteenth
and Fourteenth streets, but we have made
no decision as to the site of the head
The general offlcf of the Northwetern
line west of the Missouri are now located
In the old United States National bank
building at Twelfth and Farnam street,
where they have been for year. The city
passenger and ticket office Is located In
the Pax tan hotel. For some time it has
been realized that the pnsent offioe of
the road have been inadequate to accom
modate tha increasing business of the com
pany. . i
It will also be recalled that the National
Fidelity and Casualty company recently
bought the old United State National
bank struciuie. The Northwestern line has
a lease ua Its . present quarters, but the
sale of tha . property is thought to hav
given further stimulus to the plan to
build a headquarters building.
does Up During 1010.
"The new building 'wll: doubtless go up
during the year," added' Mr. Walters.
"Eastern officials will have to approve the
architect' pifls first- of all, but the plan
to build nnmg jeljid of a structure has al
ready been approved. The matter of a
location, I pure guesswork Just now; that
question ha not been decided."
An additional freight house Is badly
needed in Omaha to facilitate the handling
of freight. The business of the Northwest
ern has been growing rapidly of late
In 1900 the company built a freight house,
with tracks and terminal from WebBter to
Davenport streets and Thirteenth and
Fourteenth streets.. A twin building will
be erected on the Thirteenth street side to
cost approximately $100,000. It will extend
700 feet on Davenport street.
The new freight house will be used ex
clusively for Incoming shipment and the
old building for outgoing freight. Thin
plan will greatly facilitate the handling of
goods and will Insure quick dispatching
and early delivery of goods.

the Met Bros. Brewing company td which
a license wa granted by "the Fire and

appeal wa taken ty the' Anti-Saloon
Judge Estelle said In his mind the whole
thing turned on the point Whether selling
beer by the case to consumer 'Is selling
at retail. He was reluctantly compelled,
he said, to reach the conclusion that such
sale is a sale at retail.. jt
The attorneys are now. oguing to the
court the matter of the license. Attorney
for the brewers contend' that the order
to be made in the case should not Include
a revocation of the license granted' by the
board, while the Anti-Saloon lawyer con
tend that this license must "be revoked.
The decision of Judge Estelle, If sus

consequences. ' v

IMPROVEMENT OF DEPOT IS

The fate of the proposed Improvements

Is possible the enlargement of the depot
will not take place- for many month.
The money question involving an ex

already have answered the Union Pactflo

already have vetoed the proposition.

have to be considered at a meeting of gen

the plan will be halted for several months,
or until we can get representatives of

"Stomach Man" Says Pace of Life
Today is Gait that Kills.
WHACKS MODERN ' CIVILIZATION

System of People . of
Present Age Are Deareaer
i atlas by Abase.
Are Americans becoming a race of molly
coddles? The Cooper "stomach man," the eastern
expert, drove some hard Jolts against mod
ern day methods of living today. , Cooper
Is the man who has been the subject of
newspaper comment from New York to
San Francisco, as a result of an original
way of expressing his theories. He has
traveled from city to city, meeting thou
sands of persons In a study cf peptic Ills.
He la said to be a millionaire several times
over. - The "stomach man" continued:
"When Theodore Roosevelt launched the
term 'mollycoddle' It was so pat that It
stuck. Why? Because everybody knows
the flabby, limp, droopy individual who
doesn't appear to have enough gumption in
him to walk upstairs. Halt a century ago
that wouldn't have been true. It Is modern
civilization, the fact that the luxuries of
yesterday have become the necessities of
today, that Is making us a nation of molly
coddles. "It 1 my theory that 90 per cent of all
ill health Is due to stomach trouble. It is
the curse of the twentieth century. Prac
tically all of the chronic til health of this
generation Is due to abnormal stomachic
conditions. Therefore, I believe the human
stomach of present highly civilised races
has become degenerate.
"In earlier days,, when the human race
was closer to nature and men and women
worked all day out of doors digging a
frugal existence from the soil, the tired,
half-sick people that are now so common
did not exist. To be sure, there was Blck
ness, but It was of a virulent character and
only temporary. There was none of this
half-slck-all-of-the-time condition with
which so many are afflicted.
"In the horse, the cow, the dog (when
let alone and no ,urned into a purioi pet),
and the wild animals, you see no chronic
debility, no nerve exhaustion. It Is because
their stomachs are In good condition. They
are not shut up all day with little exercise,
and they do not stuff themselves with feed
when their body has not had enough work
to Justify it. The civilized races have been
doing this for years, the human stomach
has gradually become weakened, and look
at the result most of the people are half
slck. We are becoming a nation of molly
coddles. "There 1 a way to restore a run-down,
worn-out body to Its normal . condition of
health and strength. I believe I know that
way. I have made a study of stomach
trouble for many years and hav intro
duced " preparations, which have had re
markable success In proving my theories.
In all of the great cities of America. Tone
up the stomach. That Is the secret. Get
the digestive organs to doing their full duty
and we can bid good-bye to that lagging,
drooping clutch of disease that mark the
victim of stomach Ills.
"While I am In Omaha I shall take ad
vantage of the opportunity to meet the
people of this city to explain my theories
and1 medicines face to face. Beginning
