HOUSE STANDS BY
Xeroses to Recede From Vote
' ' against "Advisers' of

BOSTETTLEB WASTES yiGHT
; a atari omnM.)
Lincoln, Feb. J. (Special.) By i
rott of 40 to 47 motion to recon
sider the action of the botue yesterday
m denying all people access to the
lobby of the house unless they coald
convince the sergeant-at-arms that
they did not carry concealed designs
a gam it the members was voted down.
Hostettler of Buffalo made a strong
fight for the reconsideration. He
tilled the action of yesterday a "slap
at the intelligence of the members,
and would keep away a member's con
stituents who might want to come
down and talk over matters in which
they were interested." He said that
he was not afraid of the lobbyists.
They did not bother him any and he
did not believe that when a man's
constituency came down to visit him
they should be insulted when enter
ing the lobby of the house by being
asked if they had registered as lobby-
tate . i
Hostettler said the place back of the
lobby rail was made for the public
' and the house had no right to deny
any citizen and taxpayer the oppor
tunity of standing therein as long as
he behaved himself. "If a man from
right to call me into the lobby and
talk to me if he wants to and we have
no right to say heshall stay out."

Roberts Returned to North

North Platte, Neb, Feb. 3. (Spe
cial.) Roy Roberts, who was found
guilty of murder of Vernon Connett,
stepped from a train here today in the
custody of Sheriff Salisbury, who
brought him to North Platte from the
state penitentiary in Lincoln, was
taken to the county jail here to await
the opening of bis second trial Mon
It was just two years ago that sen
tence was pronounced on Roberts for
the murder of Cormett, who the jnry
found he had slain in order to ob
tain possession of a team and wagon.
The prisoner was taken to the peni
tentiary to await the coming of June

electric chair. In ' the meantime an
appeal to the supreme court had been
taken and sentence was suspended
pending the decision of the high
bench. In July, 1915, the supreme
court ordered a retrial on the ground
that the trial had been too spectacu

Shamberg Clothing Store
! At Grand Island Burned
Grand Island. Neb- Feb. 3. (See-
cial.) The fire department has been
kept more than ordinarily busy, six
fires having occurred in the last two
days, three on each day. Overheated
stoves and furnaces on account of
the severe cold appears to be the
cause In almost all of the cases, and
in only one case has there been se
vere damage. This was the destruc
tion of the clothing store of H. Sham
berg, whose loss, however, is fully
covered by insurance. The one-story
frame building, one of the oldest in
the city, in which the store was lo
cated, was the property of L M.
Augustine, and the loss was partly
covered by insurance. Mr. Sham-
berg's loss is estimated, between

gave a series of demonstrations on
the proper way to prepare meat for

farmers from several miles around
gathered to witnesr the scientific ex
ecution of a hog and later on saw'
half of it cut up in the way a skilled
butcher prepares it, and then tried
their own hand at it on the other

The meat was then prepared in va

as a start on its . way to the table.
These demonstrations are being con
tinually given over Nebraska by Prof.

Studebaker engine taken from

management by the Studebaker Cor

quiet and efficient, night after night,
it produced the power for 4,000 lights,
amounting to 200,000 candlepower,
without hitch or strain. Its work in
operating the big electric generator
was equivalent to a motor car run

HOW TO JUDGE A WOMAN
BY HER HAIR
There is real common sense in jost
noticing whether the hair is well kept
to judge of a woman's neatness or
good taste. II you are one ot the few
who try to make the most of your
hair, remember that it is not advis
able to wash the hair with any clean
ser made for all purposes, but al
ways use some good preparation made
expressly jor snampooing. lou can
enjoy the very best by getting some
canthrox from your druggist, dis
solve a teaspoonful in a cup of hot
water. This makes a full cup of sham
poo liquid, enough so it is easy to ap
ply it to an tne nair instead of just
the top of the head. Dandruff, ex
cess oil and dirt are dissolved and en
tirely disappear. Your hair win be so
fluffy that it will look much heavier
than it is. Its lustre and softness will
also delight you, while the stimulated
scalp gains the health which insures
hair growtn. Advertisement.
