FOR "PEN" TRUSTIES
Pardon "Board Suggests Bert
Pickrell 8 Life Term Be
OTHERS TO GET FAVOES
' Lincoln, Dec. 12j (Special.) Scc
j retary E. G. Maggi of the State" Par
don board filed with Governor More-
head this morning three recommenda-
tions for clemency for applicants who
1 k.rAr tko hnar.f at its last
Bert Pickrell, serving a sentence
for second decree murder in Sioux
county,' has been recommended for
executive clemency. Pickrell killed his
wife. Mrs. Pickrell, the evidence
showed, was associated with women
of unsavory reputation and with men
of the same stamp and this so worked
upon the mind of Pickrell that he
killed her. He was 22 years old at
the time and has served about five
years. The judge beforcjwbom he was
tried and several others have asked
the governor to grant clemency.
Terry Liggett, who is sennv time
on a statutory charge, Has Deen
recommended for clemency. The
crime was committed in Thurston
county and both, the man and the girl
were anxious to get married, but the
father of the girl refused to allow
Ms daughter to marry the man and
a petition signed by 500 residents of
Thurston county, backed up by the
county attorney and the sheriff and
also by the judge of that district,
asks that clemency be granttd.
Carl Huston sent up from Platts
mouth for stealing a seine from the
owner, is recommended for clemency
backed by the request of the county
attorney of Cass county andothcr of
ficials. All three of these men have been
trusties at the penitentiary.

Beckmann Says Auditor's
Job Is Most Useless One
(From a Staff Correspondent)
Lincoln, Dec. 12. (Special.) The
recommendation of State Auditor
Smith that the land commissioner's
department should he consolidated
with the auditor's department does
not meet with favor by Land Com.
missioner Fred Beckman, who comes
back with a recommendation that if
anv department of the state needs
tn he consolidated with other depart
ments, it is that of the state auditor.
Mr. Beckman savs that the lnsur
ance department has been divorced
from the auditor's office and that suit
for divorce could equally be brought
to separate the department of ex
amination of county treasurers from
the auditor's office and give it to the
State Banking board. He would place
the secretary of the Board of Equali
zation with the land commissioner, as
the duties of the office have much to
do with land business, and this he
insists would leave nothing in the
auditor's office but business of a legal
nature and that should be taken over
by the legal department of thMtate
in the attorney general's office, where
there are three deputies, one of whom
could look after that work.

A FINE TREATMENT
EASY TO MAKE AND COSTS LITTLE
Catarrh is such anlpsidiMis disease and
has become so prevalent during the past
few Tears that its treatment should be un
derstood by all.
Science has fully proved that ustarrn ts
constitutional disease and therefore re
quires a constitutional treatment. Sprays, in-
haiers. salves ana nose aoucnes semora u
ever five lasting benefit and often drive
the disease further down the air passages
and Into the lungs.
If ,yon have Catarrh or Catarrhal deaf
ness or head-noises, go to your druggist
ahd get one ounce of Parmint (Double
Strength). Take this home and add to it
pint of hot water and 4 ounces of granu
lated suarar: stir until dissolved, take one
tablespoonful 4 times a day.
This will often bring quick relief from
the distressing head-noises, clogged nostrils
should open, breathing become easy and
macus stop dropping into the throat.
This treatment has a slight tonic action
which makes it especially effective in cases
where the blood has become thin and weak.
It is easy to make, tastes pleasant and costs
little. Every person who wishes to be free
from this destructive - disease should give
this treatment a trial. Advertisement.
Sure Way To Get
Rid Of Dandruff
There is one sure way that never
fails to remove dandruff completely
and that is to dissolve it. This de
stroys it entirely. To do this, just
get about four ounces of plain, 'ordi
nary liquid arvon; apply it at night
when retiring; use enough to moisten
the scalp and rub it in gently with
the finger tips.
By morning,.most if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or
four more applications will complete
ly destroy every single sign and trace
of it, no matter frow much dandruff
you may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop
instantly, and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and sft, and
look and feel a hundred times better.
You can get liquid arvon at any
drug store. It is inexpensive, and
four ounces it all you will need. This
simple remedy has never been known
to fail. Advertisement.

proves it 25c at all druggists.
