Omaha Man on the
Coast is Given a
Substantial recognition has come to a
former Omaha man, John M. Kinney,
now in the service of the Southern Pa
clfla railroad. Last month Mr. Kinney
was appointed supervisor of motor cars
for the entire coast system, with head
quarters at Sacramento.
Mr. Kinney Is a son of Omaha and
a graduate machinist of the Union ' Pa
cific shops. Subsequently he entered
the MoKeen motor shops and became an
expert in that Una or mechanics. In
the early years of the McKeen cars a
trained man accompanied each car to
Its destination to teach novices how to
operate them. This duty took young
Kinney to various parts of the country
and finally to a permanent station at
Portland, Ore. When the split In the
Harriman system took place Kinney
joined t.e Southern Pacific and became
an important part of Us efficiency staff.
Since his , connection with the Southern
Pacific Mr! Kinney designed a motor
attachment by which distillate was sub
stituted for gasoline and the operating
expenses per car mile cut from 7 cents
to less than 3 cents, at the same time
improving the operating efficiency of the
cars. The improvement has been placed
on all motor cars on the system.

HIS estimates or appropriations necessary
to cover certain Improvements on the
Missouri river. '
From the published' book of estimates

thusiast as though the snagyrng fund
for this immediate section of the' river
were to be reduced from (60 000 to 82,000.
This is looked upon as a severe How to
Omaha, if the estimates cannot be
changed and a larger appropriation le

To Keep Skin Healhy,
Now that the social season is here, be
especially . careful to keep your skin in
fine oondltlon. You know how conspicu
ous complexion defects appear under
the bright light of the drawing or ball
room. Also how very evident are some
makeups when similarly illuminated. I
have myself discarded cosmetics entirely,
using a process which gives far belter
results, and which leaves no trace on
the skin. At night I smear on a thin
cogt of ordinary inercolised wax, wash
ing it off next morning. This gradually
absorbs the devitalised particles of sur
face skin; just ' aa gradually the more
youthful skin beneath comes forth, pro
vliltng a complexion as clear, smooth
and delicately tinted aa a young girl's.
Get sn ouim-h of inercolised wax at your
druKgist'a il try this remarkable treat
ment. KrmemWr, too, that wrinkles, even the
finer lines, are not easily concealed in a
brilliantly lighted room. You can quickly
obliterate these hateful marks by bath
ing your face In a solution of powdered
saxolite. 1 ., dissolved In witch haael,

dandruff will be gone, and three or four
more applications will completely dis
solve and entirely destroy every single
sign and trace of it. -

digging of the scalp will atop, and your
hair will look and feel a hundred times
better. You can get liquid arvon at any
