to his home, police and juvenile court
officials have abandoned al! hope that
the lad is still alive and have accepted

conducted a thorough search for the
boy, says he believes it would be of
little use to drag the river where it
is thought the boy fell in, as the cur

quickly be swept away.
Carl left New Year's day in search
of a sled that had been stolen from

In the meantime R. L. Robison,

University of Omaha Sells
Old Redick Home to Beal
The old Redick home, one of the
landmarks of this district, will soon
be but a memory. The building, which
has been used for the last eight years
as a study hall by the University of
Omaha, has been sold to Rudolph
Beal, who will ship it to Minnesota.
The new building, which crowded
the Redick home off the campus, will
soon be finished. President Jenkins
believes the students will occupy the
first two floors of the building by
January 10, when the new semester
begins. The opening of the school

Wheat Continues to Move
Toward Two-Dollar Mark
Wheat prices on the Omaha Grain
exchange continued their climb
toward the $2 mark, going to $1.92
per bushel. This price was a record
for cash wheat, the previous high
price having been $1.90. Sales were
made all the way from the high point
down to $1.87. The receipts were
fiftv-three carloads and the ruling
price was 1 cent over Wednesday.
Again the demand was enormous,
buying for export being the feature
of the market.

It doesn't do much good to try to
brush or wash it out The only sure
way to get rid of dandruff is to dis
solve it, then you destroy it entirely.
To do this, get about four ounces of
ordinary 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 com
pletely dissolve and entirely destroy
every single sign and trace of it.
You will find, too, that all itching and
digging of the scalp will stop, and
your hair will look and feel a hun
dred times better. You can get liquid
arvon at any drug store. It is inex
pensive and four ounces is all you
will need, no matter how much dan
druff you have. This simple remedy
