NEW ERA CF CIVILIZATION
TO CHANGE EXISTING ORDER
Both capital punishment and animal
slaughter should be abolished In the In
terests Of the common welfare, said L.
W. Rogers of New York in a lecture on
"The Life Sublime" last night at Theo
sophlcal hall, 701 Bee building.
The new era of civilisation that will
follow the world war will look back on
both these "relics of barbarism," as he
called them, with the same horror that
the race now regards the cannibalism of
Its younger days.
Vivisection was slso criticised as a bru
tal disregard of the rights of a weaker
order of beings.
The course of lectures In Omaha will
be closed Friday night, when the lecturer

South Omaha antls are ueng every means
In their power to persuade Oovernor John
H. Morehead that he ought not Ui call
the special election until swh time as
the antls think proper. Governor More
head, It la understood, Is to be treated
to another 'hearing" of the South Omaha
"Hearings" are favorite modes of de
laying things. Generally the "hearing"
consists of the same men protesting. Re
cently close friends of the governor In
South Omaha have been active to get
him to change things and help the local
antls. But all the while preparations are
being made to show that the law is not
constitutional because It prescribes the
concurrence of two or three conditions
which are said not to exist in any other
county In the state. This. It is argued
ty the antls, will show the Isw to he
special legislation and therefore uncon
stitutional. One prominent antl is anxious to have
the election put over until after the Au
gust levy. Another' wants the" election
called "some time next fall when the
weather Is not so warm," The Idea being
that Omaha voters will not come out to

Lively rark lloard Session.
The Park board met last evening and
after a lengthy debate laid a motion to
elect a superintendent on the table until
the first meeting in May. Several dis
cussions arose on whether It was legal
and proper that-the board order the ex
penditure of money for Improvements

ing capital to work on. A motion made at
the last meeting to pay an electric light
bill amounting to about $300 was rescinded
so as to provide enough funds to start
Secretary. John M. Tanner and Member
Sanger rose to a heated discussion on
matters relating to the board's previous
action, which after a time grew into per
sonalities. Judge Caldwell quietly inter
fered while the argument was at its
height and the fists were aimlessly
pounding the air In oratorical emphasis.
Sanger made a motion to remove the
office of the secretary from the private
business office of Secretary Tanner to the
office of the city clerk, which passed.
The same member also moved that a
committee of three be appointed by the
president to audit tho secretary's books
and make a report at the next meeting.
This passed unanimously and President
Hefllnger appointed Wall (chairman),
Caldwell and Hefllnger to serve.
Caldwell had a motion to provide a base
ball diamond at Mandan park and also
one to turn on the lights in all the parks
the first day of May, both .of which

manager of Armour & Co., is out

W. C ToJcuro, assistant general superin
tendent of-Cudahy's, said: "We know
nothing more than what has appeared In
the press reports. Kansas City has not
had any labor troubles In years and we
cannot assign that as a cause for an at
tempt to destroy the plants. On the other
hand, the names of the men arrested pre

A. S. Mldlam, superintendent of Armour

any local developments of the explosto.y
"We have had no trouble and expect no.le.

That tired feeling that oomes to you

that your blood lacks vitality just as
pimples, bolls and other eruptions are

is a warning, which It Is wise to heed.
Ask your druggist for lrood's Sarsa- I
parilla. This old standard tried ant I
true blood medicine relieves that tired I
feeling. It cleanses the blood, gives I
new life, new courage, strength and J
cheerfulness. It makes the rich rei j

The Finer Points of Smoking
f$ A generation ago your man with a plain
smoke appetite would stroll into a cigar
store, hand out a dime and say, "Give me
a ten cent cigar." "
Your smoker of today takes a keener relish in his
cigars he shows greater knowledge of cigars. He
says, "Once a day, after dinner, I'll be in shape to
enjoy an all-Havana with its heavy, rich flavors, but
for steady diet, 1 get more satisfaction out of milder
If he has learned the delights of the mild, " modu
