ties ia beginning to simmer again,
notwithstanding 'that the last elec
tion is hardly a thing of the past, and
the latest is tb connecting of the
name of Merton L. Corey with polit
The political dope gives it out that
Mr. Corey will move to Hastings and
when the proDer time comes will
come out as a candidate for congress
on the democratic ticket. There is
only one thing standing in the way
of the perfection of the plan and that
is the present congressman, Mr. Shal
lenberger. However it is said that the Alma
congressman has never quite given
up a hankering that he would like
to be a United States senator, and it
will be up to the interested ones to
cultivate that "hankering" until it de
velops into a well rounded out deter
mination to get into the fight.
Corey's Other Ambitions.
The'n again it is said that Corey
would like to go on the Interstate
Commerce commission provided the
commission membership is enlarged
as proposed. It has always been un
derstood that if the commission was
enlarged that there was another well
known Nebraskan who has won his
spurs in many a fight who would
stand a mighty good show of landing
a place on the commission, and he is
Henry T. Clarke of the 'Nebraska
State Railway commission. Mr.
Clarke is recognized all over the
country as one of the really strong
men connected with affairs associated
with the work which the commission
has to do and for some time his name
has been mentioned whenever a place
on the commission has been talked
of. Members of the national com
mission are acquainted with Mr.
Clarke and have more than once tes
tified to his ability and so when if
comes to a place on the commission,
unless politics will be the standard
for membership, Mr. Clarke can real
ly be considered as having the Inside
track. - . . , -
But to return to Mr. Corey and the
United States senatorship, and its
connection with other political things.
Will the interested friends of Mr.
lenberger that he ought to run for
the senate and after doing so will the
way b clear for him? v .
i ' Other Barkises.
It it known that there are other
democrats besides Mr, Shallenberger
who are making eyes at the senator
ship. Governor Morehead would not
throw the nomination away if it
should come to him, and it it sus
pected that he would not dodge to
keep from getting hit if it should be
thrown in his direction. Then again
there Is Attorney General Reed. The
attorney general haa gone to Wash
ington this week, and it il suspected
will make an investigation of the chair
now held by Senator Norris to see
just how it will fit him. There it
only one thing, apparently, against
Mr. Reed, and that it that he comet
from the North Platte country. How
ever, that it not likely to discourage
the attorney general. When' he looks
over the last election results and teet
the majorities he received in tome of
the South Platte countiet, he timpty
smiles and thowt no tignt of worry.
With Governor, Morehead, Attor
ney General Reed and Congressman
Shellenberger in the fight for the
democratic nomination, there will be
interest enough all along the lint of
democratic trenches to keep prog
nosticatort; busy for some time to
come. - '

Washington, Dec. i. After Presi

he may deliver a brief address dealing
with the high cost of living.
The president's plana on the sub
ject are as yet indefinite and may not
be r-ctured until the last moment be
fore he goes to congress. It is known,
howevir, that the administration con
siders the cost of living one of the
most pressing questions before the
country and that many of the presi
dent's closest advisers favor consider
ing it in the legislative program.
Thousands of petitions are pouring
into the White House calling for some
sort of relief from the present era
of high prices for food, many of them
demanding an embargo on foodstuffs
exported to fcurope.. . ihey are re
garded by officials as a strong trend of

JONES sometimes wakes up feeling cross
and in consequence the family know it
without his telling them in so many words.
Mrs. Jones attributes it to biliousness and
if it doesn't wear off during the day she
gives him a dose of liver medicine at night.
The next morning he feels better and she ,
gives him coffee for breakfast, and the next
morning, and the next morning. And in
a few days Jones has another spell.
Dear Mrs. Jones means all right, but she
doesn't seem to realize that if she didn't give
Jones his morning coffee she wouldn't have ,
to give him the liver medicine and Jones
would feel all right without both.
Housewives everywhere have found out
that Instant Tostum takes the place of break
fast coffee perfectly. And that is only one of
the reasons why Instant Postum , has wholly
supplanted the use of coffee on thousands
upon thousands of American breakfast tables.

tional defense. There also remain to
be acted upon important conserva

many members of both legislative
branches have been advocating.
Beside those measures President
Wilson wants congress to enact the
Wehb bill to make it leizal for Ameri

lective selling agencies for foreign
countries. Under terms of the Clay

would be unlawful. The president

days of the last session and expressed
his regrets in a tormai statement.
Detente Measures Pending.
With regard to the national defense

P. Clarke of Arkansas. A new ma

Senator Kern of Indiana, and there
is considerable maneuvering among

to do to. . Among those under con
