ATTENDANCE IS CUT DOWN - The cold gripped the South Side severely in many places in the last twenty-four hours. Night school at the high school was dismissed last evening and there was no school ses sion at the South Field school on West, L street, on account of furnace trouble. The stopper on One of the leading mains from the high school furnace burst just before the after noon session was completed and the heating plant was put out of order. Engineer Hummel took charge of the situation and ordered fire under one of the boilers put out. Plumbers worked late last evening fixing .the leak, while the engineer .remained in the school building through the night. At the Field school the turnace, a new one recently installed, wasrepaired after an all-day visit by furnace workers. Attendance at most of the public schools was far less than normal. Distant schools, such as the Highjand, West Side and the Field, reported less than half of the students attend ing. The night school attendance Wednesday was three-fourths up to 'the total registration. Auto Victims Recover. The four victims of accidents in au tomobile smash ups Wednesday, will all recover. Chester Dean, young truck driver, whd was hurled thirty feet from the top of the West Q street viaduct at Forty-fifth street, and buried beneath the debris of the ma chine, was able to go home unaided Thursday morning. It was first re ported that his left leg was broken, but this was only bruised. His escape from instant death is remarkable as the truck was completely demolished. Henry Wredi, young stockman at the yards, will recover according to announcement of his physician, Dr. Shanahan. He sustained only severe cuts about the upper chest and arms. His two partners in the car, William Kline and C. Collins, Avery, will also recover. They were but slightly in jured. -All three are still at the South Umaha hospital, - "' "' , Patent Documents at Library.

Ever since Scheele, in 1775, discov ered that uric acid was present in the system, scientific men have been mak ing experimental investigations, and it is the almost universal opinion of our best medical men, that the pres ence of uric acid in the system in ex cess is the cause of rheumatism and gout. When the urate salts are precip itated out of the blood into the solid tissue-structure the person suffers from gout and rheumatism in the mus cles and joints, or suffers from lum bago and pain in the back muscles. The first aim of the sufferer should be to get rid of the uric acid, which, excess, is a poison, and to do this it is well to drink about a pint of hot water morning and night get tablets of Anuric (double strength) at the nearest drug store ana take tnem De fore meals regularly. Anuric will do no harm to the system and will carry off the uric acid by stimulating the kidneys, men tincture looine may be painted over the swellings, or in more severe cases hot linseed poul tices may be applied to soothe the local symptoms. But most important is it for the sufferer to abstain from meat, to diet, drink only lemonade or hot water, and take Anuric for a con siderable time, as it causes a drainage oufward of the uric acid and is many times more potent than lithia and usu ally one finds that it dissolves uric acid as hot water does sugar.

Enters VTar to Be Decided There. OTHER NEUTRALS WATCH El Paso, Tex., Feb. 2. A report Great Britain and all Europe are to day focused on Washii.gton. It is recognized that the question whether the United States finally will be drawn into the European war is being decided there. Not only the policy of the United States but of neutral European rations also s being largely determined in Washington. From Spain, Holland and the Scandinavian countries messages to the English papers say they are waiting for the lead which the United States will give before framing their replies to the German announcement n unfettered maritime war against all cargo ves sels approaching its enemies' coasts. British officials declined to speak for publication on the crisis lest any utterances might be construed in the United States as officious attempts to influence the American p licy and in trude upon the problem, which they recognize as purely one between the neutral nations and the central powers. , Two theories are current here and are being warmly discussed. One is that the central powers expect to starvd out Great Britain and its allies by unrestricted sea warfan and that they consider, they have more to gain by trying to shut off American sup plies of munitions and food than by continjirg 1 friendly relations. The second is 'hat the central dynasties consider that ats'the presen moment they may best serve their own inter ests with . their peoples by bringing upon themselves the hostility of the neutral nations and saying that they cannot fight the whole world.
