Have You Backache,
(By M. C. l-ucis, M. D.)
American men and women should
guard constantly against kidney trou
ble, because we eat too much and all
our food is rich. Our blood is filled
with uric acid which the kidneys
strive to filter out; they weaken from
overwork, become sluggish; the elim
inative tissues clog and the result is
kidney trouble, bladder weakness and
often the poison reaches the tissues,
causing rheumatism and gout.
,' When your kidneys feel like lumps
of lead, when your back hurts or th
urjne is cloudy, full of sediment, or
you are obliged to seek relief Jwo or
three times during the night: when
you suffer with sick headache or dia
zy, nervous spells, acid stomach, or
you have rheumatism when the
weather is bad. ask your druggist for
Auuric (double strength). I have
. found in practice that Anuric is more
potent than lithia and in most cases
it will dissolve the uric acid as hot
water does sugar.
Most pepple do neglect themselves.
Their tongue has a dark brown color,
skin sallow, breath bad, yet they fail
to see that their machinery needs at
tention. Everybody should take a
mild laxative at least once a week. A
pleasant way to clear the tongue and
the highly colored water noticed in
the morning is to take a laxative
which will cure the inactive liver and

jalap, made into a tiny pellet and

Tall why everyone should drink
hot water each morning
Why is man and woman, half the

would take place. Instead of thous
' ands of half-sick, anaemic-looking
souls with pasty, muddy complexions
we should see crowds of happy,
healthy, rosy-cheeked people every
where. The reason is that the human
system does not rid itself each day
of all the waste which it accumulates
under our present mode of living. For
every ounce of food and drink taken
into the system nearly an ounce of
waste materials must be carried out,
else it ferments and forms ptomaine

Left-Handed Jolt From Bench
Is Delivered at Omaha
IN UNION PACIFIC CASE
(From Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Feb. 5. (Special.) An
$18,000 verdict against the Union Pa
cific, in favor of Eliiabeth L. Kriss,
administratrix of the estate of her
husband, John J. Kriss, obtained in
the Douglas county district court, is
declared excessive by the Nebraska
supreme court and must be shaved off
before the judgment is affirmed. Kriss.
an electrician, was killed in a railroad
The court finds that the widow her
self is to get $10,137.16, which is "at
least 25 per cent too large." The court
asks that $2,534.29 be remitted. The
opinion was by Judge Sedgwick.
The attorney for the estate was J.
J. Sullivan of Omaha, former judge
on the Nebraska supreme bench. The
grounds for reversal advanced by the
defendant were alleged misconduct in
Judge Sullivan 'f closing remarks to
The briefs of the contending attor
neys Judge Sullivan for the plaintiff
and hdson Rich for the railroad are
given to almost an exchange of per
sonalities, which moves the nign
bench to remark.
"These respective attorneys, are, and
long have been, among the leading
and influential members of the bar of
this state, and from the view that we
take of this record we are fortunate
in not being required to comment on
the propriety of the language com
plained of." '
Judge Sullivan had intimated that
the railroad had to do with the alter
ation of a train dispatcher's record in
connection with the case.
In his brief, he pointed out that the
contending side sat quiet and did not
object to the .court when he made
these statements. He said they were
evoked by previous remarks made to
the jury by the other side. J

Hoffmeister Kills Measure That
Howard Member Wanted
to Get Through. 1
BACHELOES GET JOSHED
WAY MILL BILL
Tells Committee He 'wants It
Passed and the Finish
GETS RISE FROM REISNER
(Prom a Staff Correspondent)
Lincoln, Feb. 5. (Special.) The
legislative waters looked fine today
and Mr. Fries of Howard thought it
would be a good time to send a little
bill he had in for a legislative oath,
but the undercurrent proved too
strong for the frail creature and it got
beyond its depth and the treacherous
waves carried it out to sea where it
perished before the life-saving crew
could man its boats and go to the
rescue. Mr. Fries Wde a heroic ef
fort to save it, but to no avil for Rep
resentative Hoffmeister gave it a swat
in the solar plexus the last time it
came up to the surface and it sank into '
Davy Jones' locker.
Mr. Fries' bill was an amendment to
the present law to enable individuals
not .able to pay for keening relatives
in a state hospital to make affidavit j
ot tneit inability to so do and the state
would stand good for it. He did not
desire to take away the authority to
make those who could pay requred
to do so, but he did want It made
easier for those who could not.
Hoffmeister Kills It
While the house was engaged in
discussing the measure, Hoffmeister
sent up an amendment to knock out
the whole law and before Fries could
gather himself the house had adopted
the amendment and the bill was not
only dead, but the law also as far as
the house action was concerned.
Four-year terms for county officers
got another boost when the judiciary
committee handed in a recommenda
tion for the passage of such a bilL

Bill to Revenue Committee.
The judiciary committee did not like
to tinker with the bill which allows a
county assessor to be a candidate for
re-election and which also gives every
county a county assessor and turned
the bill over to the committee on
revenue and taxation.
Bills approved" in committee of the
whole and sent to third reading:

west of the 100th meridian for keeping pri
vate roads in fhape for travel.
Authorising cemetery associations that
are 20 years old to condemn adjacent farm
land for cemetery use. ,
Joshing or Liggett.
Mr. Liggett, bachelor member from
Seward county, was , "joshed" on his
approaching wedding, and Mr, Green
wait of Custer was admbnished to fol
low his example, in a resolution offer
ed by Mr. Murtey.
-. Liggett was called before the honse
to speak on this resolution. He ad
mitted the charge and asked his col
leagues to exercise forbearance if he
should seem at times absent-minded
or peevish. ,
Mr. Greenwalt, the dean of bach
elors in the house, who also had some
fun poked at him in the resolution,
also made a speech and said he was
willing to stand up alongside of Lig
gett and Murtey, introducer of the
resolution, and let the rest of the
members judge between them as to

County Clerk Hudson Is
Arrested on Forgery Charge
Hastings, Neb., Feb. 5. (Special
Telegram.) On complaint of County
Attorney Fouts, County Clerk Hudson

day on a warrant charging him with
having'uttered a fraudulent . warrant
on the county treasurer. The county
warrant was for $883.19 and was
cashed at a local bank on January 18.
1917, though it is alleged to have
been'written, according to the records
of his office on July 5, J915 or 1916".
J. F. Heiler, president of the county
board said during the day that this
complaint might be withdrawn and
another substituted. .
Mr. Hudson gave bond in the sum
of $1,500 and took a continuance to
February 20. Mr. Hudson is serving
his third term as county clerk and has
been a popular official. When asked
for an explanation of the matter today
he referred the questioner to his attor
ney, who said there were no develop
ments! The warrant bears the name
of Mr. Heiler. The complaint charges
that the warrant is a forgery. ,

Lincoln, Feb. 5. (Special.) The
house voted, 70 to 20, to overturn the
report of the railroad committee in
definitely postponing H. R. 214, ,to
prohibit the running of any train
without a regular headlight. Mr. Har
ris (Greeley, the bills introducer,
moved that it be placed on the gen
eral file. He was backed up by
Messrs. Cronin, Thomas, Shannon.
Hoffmeister and others.
The motion was antagonized by
Messrs. Sass, Schwab, Reisner and
Mr. Cronin quoted a railroad lob
byist as saying to hiin that he (the
lobbyist) had found a new way to get
bills killed, and. that was by telling
the railroad committee he was for it.
"And he remarked that he was for
this bill," said Cronin, "but, of course
he wasn't." " '
"That fellow was a liar," retorted
Reisner, who is on the railroad com
mittee. Mr. Cronin called attention to the
statute that requires automobile driv
ers to have headlights, on their ma
chines after night. He though a rail
road conmany should not be allowed
to risk the lives of its employes and
passengers by using a brakeman's
lantern in place of a broken head
light. Mr. Harris (Buffalo) was afraid the
bill would tie up shipments of live
stock on the way to market, in case
of a headlight accident, and thus cause
the owners of the animals to lose
Another Hearing Slated
For Board of Education Bill

Lincoln, Feb. 5. (Special.) Sena
tor Ed Howell, whose school board
bill was under fire at an Omaha Com
mercial club hearing Saturday, vants

"I believe the selection of school
board members by wards and' their
subsequent election then by voters
of the entire city is right in every
