with the state boards of defense
to make a thorough- investigation of
all places where there was grain or

thorough inspections of all places
where an amount of grain or other
food supplies is stored to the end

supply conserved. This is our con

it without cost to the government."

Counties Make Arrests at

Kearney, Neb., June 27. (Special
Telegram.) A round-up of auto
thief suspects ended in this city to
day with the location of evidence in
the way of stolen tires, auto equip
ment, plates fpr changing auto en
gine numbers and parts for altering
cars. William Faser was arrested here
and at the same time Frank St. Clair
was arrested at Grand Island, and
Sheriff Condit ordered the detention
of two men at Fremont. Six stolen
cars were located in the round-up, all
at Broken Bow, and four of the ma
chines were identified.
Many Officers Take Part.
Sheriffs representing eight counties
arrived in the city during the night
and concluded their investigations of
weeks. Those taking .part in the
round-up were Sheriffs Benton of
Lexington, Sievers of Grand Island.
Wilson of Broken Bow. Condit of
Fremont, Peterson of Fullertoii, Pot
ter of Osceola, Howard of Alurora,
Deputy Sheriff Thompson of Broken
Bow and Sheriff Funk of Kearney.
Raids at the St. Clair home here
revealed a fine set of steel dies, emery
wheels and the like, a complete outfit
for grinding numbers off car engines
and punching in substitutes.
In addition many auto parts, taken
from various makes of cars, were
found. At the William Faser home
many new tires and casings were
found and a search of the George
Faser place revealed additional tires.
These were all identified as having
been stolen at Alda.
Say Parts Were Bought.
The Fasers claim that all were
bought from transient autoists. The
belief of the officials is that cars were
stolen in all parls of the state,
brought to Kearney or Broken Bow
and overhauled and then disposed of.
Disclosures locally would indicate
that Kearney has been the switching
point for the stolen cars. Others are
suspected of implication in the thefts
and more arrests arc anticipated.

One of the characteristic headaches
due to uric acid in the system, which
acts as a poison when it accumulates,
is due to alcohol taken the night be
fore. The kidneys do not succeed in
throwing off this poisonous accumu
lation, 'the stomach is nauseated, or
the blood congests in the head, caus
ing thrbobing pain, called headache
the heart is depressed, circulation of
blood poor to the extremities, the
muscles feel tired, or twinges of pain
here and there are felt, and when this
uric acid is deposited in the tissues
or joints it causes rheumatism or
gout. I always advise the drinking of
hot water, a half pint in the morning,
and a little Anuric. Sometimes, the
"blues," or a sort of rash, or a pimply
face, gives warning of an "uric acid
storm." At such times always take
Anuric (double strength), which can
be obtained at almost any drug store,
and which you will find dissolves the
uric acid almost as hot water does
Avoid too much meat, tea and alco
hol. Drink an abundance of water,
both hot and cold. Take Anuric three
times a day until the bad symptoms
all subside. This is the best way to
avoid rheumatism and many of the
pains and aches due to a uric acid
condition. If you drink any alcoholic
beverage you shoiMd keep the kidneys
and liver active with Anuric, so as to
throw ott the poisons which accumu
late. If your tongue is coated a dark
brown taste, breath foul, followed
sometimes by colds, Indigestion, bil
iousness, constipation or sour acid
stomach, you should take some vege
table laxative. Such a one is made in
sugar-coated form from the May-
apple, leaves of aloe, and root of
jalap, and commonly sold by almost
all druggists as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant
Pellets. They are standard and have
been in ready-to-use form for nearly
ntty years. Advertisement.
