The case probably will be heard this
fall. The decision tf t he court may
close one of the most sensatirrat ot
the exploits of the young woman,
who is remarkable for her works in
sculpture, for her horsemanship and
for her devotion to sports, as well as
for her . iking departures from the
usual routine life of society, which
often have claimed the front pages of
Mortons Not Talking.
The suit for divorce follows the last
ofthe visits of Bayly to Chicago by
ahtut six mouths. At that time, last
witter, Bayly spent about two weeks
in It lie city and let it bt known that
he-was negotiating with the Mortons
fo$ the purpose of securing a divorce,
ot "annulment of the marriage. None
of the Mortons tonight would say

Miss Morton met Rayly while tak
ing part in a horse show held under
the auspices of Chicago society folk.
There followed a visit by Miss Mor
ton to Delaplane for the porpoie of
picking out a thoroughbred animal
for her mount.
There were rumors she had mar
ried Bayly in July, 1914. but she de
nied this report, and suddenly began
a sensational dash across the country
to Whcaton. She proceeded a part
ol the distance on trains, but eluded
the most energetic efforts of news
paper men to intercept her by speed
ing on large sections ot her journe
by motor car across the country.

State pond t ummissiouri' Harmon
called Health t unimissioner ( oiinel!
over a tei-;'hone frnm Lincoln ester
dav and a-ked this queslioii: "Is it
a tact that vun are not cnloiving the
slate law uhuh icquues IS per cent
butler f.H in cream:"
"Ves, that is a fact! 1 am requiring
not less than lb per cent butter fat,"
teplied the Omaha health commis
sioner. Then I'll have to proseuite (hem,"
itplied the state coiniin-iouer.
Hi. ( onnell explained his position
in the tollowuig words: "Two years
ago w e changed the local orduiaiu e on
cie.ini to read IS per cent instead of
lo per cent butter tat, to agree with
the state law.
Prevented Price Raise.
"At a meeting of milk men last
Pebruaiv these dealers told me they
would have to raise the price of cream
from S tents to 10 cents per small
bottle it I insisted upon the IK per
cent requirement, and they said it
would he better for them to sell the
mtlk under the then preva.ling price
than to lake of.' the cream and hold
it to IS per cent butter fat at 8 cents
per small bottle. 1 told ihem 1 would
not prosecute if it fell below 18 per
cent, but would insist upon a mini
mum of lb per cent which the milk
and dairy inspector was directed to
Holds Difference Small.
"I maintain that cream having 16
per cent butter tat is just as good as
the IS per cent kind, although it may
not have quite as much nutritive
value and it was the belief last Feb
ruary that I was conserving the inter
ests of the consumers when I had the
agreement with the milk men."
Dr. Connell is not at all perturbed
over what the state food commis
sioner may do, but seems confident he
will be able to defend his position be
fore any board, court or tribunal. He
stated that forty milk dealers attended
the meeting last February when he
agreed to suspend the state law in
their behalf, lie insists that he gave
them to understand l.e would hold to
the 16 per cent butter fat requirement
and gave such instructions to Milk
and Dairy Inspector Bossie.
Good Cream-Poor Cream
and Our Four Creams
TP It takes a quart and a half of average milk to
make a half pint of legal cream and not overly
good cream at that but much better than the average
cream sold. This we sell at the rate of 1 1 1 2 cash
tickets for $1.00.
flp Our "SPECIAL JERSEY" a much better cream
J testing about 23 per cent butter fat is higher than
the legal standard; consequently better in flavor,
keeping quality, etc., and sells for 10 cents per half
pint. Tf Our "XX EXCEPTIONAL CREAM," the finest
cream ever put out in Omaha; testing about 35
per cent almost double the standard required at
15 cents per half pint, suitable for whipping and ex
ceptionally fine for coffee and table uses.
rj "WHIPPING CREAM" is supplied at 15 cents
j per half-pint and 25 cents per pint.
rf"T The body of the cream is not always a true indi
j cation of its richness nor will a single day's trial
of milk or cream tell you the true value.
jrWe recommend our SPECIAL JERSEY and XX
Cream. Compare them with other creams in

Remarkable Road And
Race Track Records
TUNE, July and August have re
I corded a series of remarkable
racing records achieved with the
aid of Goodyear Cord Tires.
These victories are valuable be
cause they offer corroborative evi
dence of the very qualities for which
Goodyear Cord Tires are famous.
The terrific speed of the shorter
contests, and the sustained speed of
the longer ones, are added proof of
that stoutness, liveliness and speedi
ness which every Goodyear owner
experiences in every -day use, and
which led to the adoption of Good
year Cord Tires as standard equip
ment on tie Franklin, the Packard
Twin-Six, the Locomobile, the Peer
less, the White, the Haynes Twelve,
and the Stutz.
