in the navy some years ago showed
him within the draft age. Clark said
he thought he was intoxicated when

children wouldn't haze him."
A banker out in the state called
the commissioner by telephone and
stated that Clark's mother had re

he is more than 31 years old. In

State Rail Board to
Take Up Near Side Stop
Secretary T. A. Browne of the Ne

the commission on next Wednesday

While railroad officials are not an
ticipating a break-up of the Nebraska
streams in the immediate fuUire, they
are taking extra precautions to pre
vent damage to bridges and tracks
when the ice moves.
With railroad agents reporting
temperatures of 30 to 45 degrees
above zero all through Nebraska,
railroad men say the ice cannot hold
many days if the warm weather con
tinues. In the 'Upper stretches of
the Platte and Elkhorn rivers in Ne
braska, the warm weather of Wed
nesday melted the snow rapidly and
sent the water down the valleys onto
the ice in the rivers. As a result, all
through ihe western and central por
tions of the state, water covers the ice
in the rivers t,o a depth of three inches
to a toot.
To be ready for the break when it
comes and in order to protect the
bridges, the railroad people are ship
ping quantities of dynamite to all sec
tion crews working in close proxim
ity to bridges. This is so that they
may dynamite, the ice and break up
the large cakes as soon as they begin
to show signs of letting loose their
With an early break-up of the ice
railroad men look for high water, con
tending that should the break come
before the ground thaws out, instead
of the flood waters being absorbed,
they would run off and onto the ice

All through Nebraska, with the ex
ception of a narrow belt along the
Missouri river, railroad men say there
has been more than the normal snow
fall during the winter, and that if it
goes off early and with unusually
warm weather, there is certain to be
high water in the smaller streams, at
Through the mountain districts of
Wyoming and Colorado, railroad
men say that the quantity of snow on
the front range is not so great as in
former years, but' that back in thej
second range it is unusually heavy. ;
The water from this snow is not ex-i
pected to reach the nlains of Ne-!
braska for several weeks, even if the
warm weather should continue. There
are no fears of the water from this
snow doing any serious damage.

Report Many Cases
of Rheumatism Now
Says w must keep feet dry;
avoid exposure and eat
Stay off the damp ground, avoid
exposure, keep feet dry, eat less meat,
drink lots of water and above all take
a spoonful of salts occasionally to
keep down uric acid.
Rheumatism is caused by poisonous
toxin, called uric acid, which is gen
erated in the bowels and absorbed into
the blood. It is the function of the
kidneys to filter this acid from the
blood and cast it out in the urine. The
pores of the skin are also a means of
freeing the blood of this impurity. In
damp and chilly, cold weather the skin
pores are closed, thus forcing the kid
neys to do double work, they become
weak and sluggish and fail, to elim
inate this uric acid, which keeps ac
cumulating and circulating through
the system, eventually settling in the
joints and muscles, causing stiffness,
soreness and pain called rheumatism.
At the firsts twinge of rheumatism
get from any pharmacy about four
ounces of Jad Salts; put a tablespoon
ful in a glass of water and drink be
fore breakfast each morning for a
week. This is said to eliminate uric
acid by stimulating the kidneys to
normal action, thus ridding the blood
of these impurities.
Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless
and is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia
and is used with excellent results by
thousands of folks who are subject to
rheumatism. Here you have a pleas
ant, effervescent lithia-water drink
vhich overcomes uric acid and is bene
ficial to your kidnevs as well.Adv.
With the Motor Car
The motor car is the greatest
time saver genius has given us.
The car owner in every line of business
adds to his efficiency by using a car.
It saves time in going to and from the office enough
minutes a day to save you thirty or forty days' time in
a year. And you don't hang on a strap in a stuffy street
car while you are getting to the office.
In making deliveries of all kinds of merchandise, the
Auto Truck makes it possible for the manufacturer,
wholesaler or retailer to give their customers four or
five deliveries, a day, whereas in the past, they were
able to give one with a horse-drawn vehicle.
The Fire Department has been able to save many a fine
building as a result of the great rapidity with which
motor car fire equipment is able to operate. -
The Modern Doctor is able, through his Motor Car, to
carry relief where the use of the horse-drawn vehicle
would have meant pain and possibly death for his
The Police Department, with its high speed Motor Cars,
is often able to prevent crime and where the crime has
been committed to run down the culprits where it
would be impossible with the old horse-drawn police
The1 Modern Salesman would be lost without hiscar.
It helps him to get over his territory faster he gives
better service to his customers and more time to him
means more sales and more money in his pocket.
It mate no difference what your business calling or
profession may be, the Motor Car will make you more
efficient in it.
Give the motor car as a time saver, deep thought.
Motorism is Modernism.
The fact that the motor car means so much to so many
people accounts for thfe tremendous interest in the
coming automobile show, Feb. 25 to Mar. 2.
