Several of the Broadway groceryraen,

upon what promlaes to be an effective plan
for destroying the million of fllea that
bank on (he sunny side of the street and
take advantage of every opportunity to
sneak Into the stores. Masses of well
wetted fly paper and epongea soaked with
arsenical poison solutions are placed In aafe
placea outalde the stores, and the fllea that
are on the waiting Hat eagerly alp up the
liquid when they get hungry and thirsty.
The result Is swift and oertaln, and the
clerks relieve eaoh other In the work of

fllea that were bussing about the closed

dead Insects could have been gathered up
by shovels, and In many places the pave

are trying the experiment and about ail
who have observed lta effect are confident
that If all the business houses In the grocery
district would join In the work the fly prob
lem would be pretty nearly aolved.

It Is now a very grave queetlon whether
any woman or other person can legally ap
pear In public or even on the moet se
cluded street In Council Bluffs, wearing a
peek-a-boo waist, or a modeetly pronounced
decollete costume and escape the danger of
arrest and pnulshment by Imprisonment or
fine to the extent of at least thirty days
or $100. At least that appears to be
strong probability If one of the five new
ordinances rushed through the city oouncll
last night under suspension of the rules
ahould be rigidly construed by Police Judge
Snyder or hla successors.
The council last evening began the work
of passing amended and emended ordl
nances that City Solicitor Kimball waa In
structed to prepare In the hope that con'
Mictions can be seoured for ordinary mis-
demeanors that will not be reversed In the
higher courts on the grounds tbat the olty

are brought are In conflict with the state's

ordinance adapted repeal all others con
flicting with them and the whole batch
were very skillfully and carefully drawn to
meet the bad conditions that have pre
vailed to prevent the police oourt maintain
ing prosecutions for scores of mlsdemean
ore. A section of the "peek-a-boo" ordinance
aays: "Whoever shall willfully appear In
any open place, or before any assembly of
peop'.-j clad In Insufficient garments, or In
t!is attire of the sex opposite that of the
wearer, or any dress or attire exposing the
form as to create disorder or disturbance."
shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall
be fined or Imprisoned. This ordloanoe,
however, Is meant to provide punishment
for a number of obnoxious things and to
permit prosecution under city laws of per
sona found wearing the wrong kind of
olothee. The old ordinance governing such
things waa Inoperative on aocount of con
flict with state laws.
Other ordinances define vagrancy, dis
turbances, drinking in public places this
one especially relating to "can rushers"
and hobo parties and others to defining
"disorderly houses and their inmates," who
have been Immunu from punishment under
the old ordinance whenever they took the
trouble to appeal from polloe court Judg
ment. The work of making new city laws
that are believed to be strong enough to
withstand the high court interpretation Is
to be continued until all of the defective
ones are eliminated.

Am a greatful mother I feel It my duty to thank: you (or
the cure of my little son who waa afflicted for about eight
months with sores all over tig head, back of his neck and
nearly all hla face. We tried all kinds ot remedies without
any relief. We even employed a good physlolan and I am
sure be tried hla very best to cure my poor suffering lylttle
boy. But, alast instead of getting better he went for the
worse. His head was literally covered with scabs and ugly '
sores and his cries kept us awake throughout the long
night. I had to keep his bands in gloves to prevent his
scratching his head, as he was doubtless suffering from a
burning and itching sensation and was constantly trying
to put his hands where it hurt.
At last when he was about three years old, we saw an
advertisement of Cuticura and decided to try the virtues of
the Cuticura R-medles. I bought one cake of Cuticura
Soap, a box of Cuticura Ointment and a bottle ot Cuticura
RevolvenU I used them according to directions and am
happy to tell you the little sufferer was cured in less than
three weeks. This was over a year ago and now bis head is
covered with a fine growth of luxuriant hair. Strange to
say, all those unsightly sores did not even leave a scar.

The Midwest Life
The two managers cf a successful Lin
coln corporation a (ew days ago took
out separate policies on their lives mak
ing the corporation the benlflolary. The
work of each of these men Is separate and
distinct from the other and they felt, that
in case of the death of either the bus
iness might suffer materially from the
loss of hla advice and services. The ad
dition of 110,000 in cash to the assets of
tbe company at such a time would have
a decided tendeney to relieve all financial
strain during the period of adjustment
which alwaya follows the death of one
of the active men In any enterprise. The
Midwest Life was the company In which
these men placed this Insurance. If inter
