COMES TO EVERYONE
Spring .sickness comes in soma de
gree to every man, woman and child
In our climate. It is that run-down
condition of the system that results
from impure, impoverished, devital
ized blood. It is marked by loss of
appetite and that tired feeling, and
in many cases by some form of. erup
tion. The be?t' wy' to treat spring sick
ness is to take Hood's Sarsaparilla.
Ask your . druggist for "this all-tho-year-round
medicine. It purifies,
enriches and revitalizes tho blood.

Omaha completing reports on recent in
vestigations which he has niado. He has
had charge- of the work on some of the
larger Nebraska cases, several of which
involve more than 3,500 acres of land.
Tho common charges in the prosecu
tion of these cases has been fraudulent

In Nebraska, and while, this work Is be

now cases will be Instituted.
During tho period when the cattle busi
ness was at Us zenith In 'Nebraska many
acres of government land were illegally
fenced. When the government compelled
cattlemen to remove these fences their
rango was shortened considerably, and
it is said that tho practice of using
dummy entrymen became a common one.
Much of the land thus acquired went
Into tho bigger ranches, and though some
of these suits have been pending for sov
eral years the department has determined
to clean up theso cases during the pres

Nearly every one of the big Omaha banks
Is In receipt of letters from the Kunsas
City banks with which they correspond,
suggesting that Kansas City would like
to send a committee up hero to "talk It

City Hall Heating
Question is Turned
Over to the Mayor
The recommendation of the Commercial
club that the city commission arrange to
have tho city hall heated from tho heat
ing plant of an adjacent building instead
of gotng to the expense of repairing the
old boilers was referred to the mayor by
Mayor Dnhlman asked that the. com
munication be turned over to his office,
as ho has the other documents In the mat
ter. An appropriation of S15.000 was author
ized by the council for the repair of the
boiler plants at the city hall.

to heat the city hall for a sum less than'
the city would have to pay ror-fUcl, labor
and incidental repairs.
