PLEA IS FILED
BY MRS. HALE
Allegations Against "Well
Known Blond" Omitted. and,
Charges of Cruelty and Ex
Dorothy T. Hale, who dismissed her
suit for divorce from Hugh W. Hale,
in which she charged he had become
fascinated with , Mrs. Blanche Max
well Rowe, last November, has filed
a new petition for divorce.
In the new petition the allegations
concerning, Mrs. Rowe are omitted
and alleged cruelty, violent and 'vi
cious temper and numerous assaults
and beatings; are made the grounds
for bringing the action.
She avers in this petition that he
is extravagant, lives beyond his means
as yardmaster for the Northwestern
railroad and has incurred indebted
ness to the payment of which she ha
contributed between $4,000 and $5,000
since., their marriage, besides buying
him many expensive presents. Hale
is 40 years old, she says.
Her first divorce suit was dismissed
just before Christmas, when a recon
ciliation was affected. Hale returned
to his wife. In that petition she
charged that Hale had become inter
ested and wanted to be constantly
in the company of a "well-known
Omaha blond woman," whose name
she did not want; to give the court
for fear of breaking, up the "other
woman's" happy home.
Filet Damage Suit.
The petition was filed in August. In
October Mrs. Hale filed a suit for
$25,000 damages against Mrs. Blanche
Maxwell Rowe, wife of Hale's friend,
alleging that Mrs. Rovn had beguiled
Hale "by protestations of love-and
flattery and by promises" into having
clandestine meetings with" her at the
, Rowe home and elsewhere.
Mrs. Hale declared Mrs. Rowe had
received Hale and entertained him at
her home in Rowe's absence and had
taken midnight anjo rides with him.
She said Hale had bought Mrs. Rowe
presents of candy, fruit and silk gar
ments and that Mrs. Rowe had mali
ciously planned to deprive hef of her
husband's love and affection.
She charged that she and her
daughter had been "deprived of the
necessities and luxuries oft life be--.
cause Hale ; was spending all'his
money and tome of hers on a promi
nent Omaha blond."
Shortly before Christmas, 1917, she
dismissed her first divorce action. The
dismissal of the divorce action auto
matically stopped action on Mrs.
Hale's alienation of affection damage
x suit against Mrs. Rowe. . -
Mrs, Rowe protested that she was
the innocent victim of a "jealous
. woman's suspicions" and' maintained

The Hague, March 4. (Associated
Press.) The Jev.ish correspondent
bureau here reports that the anti
Semite agitation in the Pol'rh paj
is assuming form."which were form
erly possible only in reactionary
Russia." The agitation, it is stated,
it directed especially against the sale
of land t Jews. Newsj. .pers are
publishing the na.aes of those who
nave geen "guilty of Such a crime."
The bureai prints an exfact from
an article h the Lemberg Tage'k'.t
describinj as pit'able the plight of the,
Jews living at Belz in Gai.':ia. The
Jews, it :ays, a.- cbliged j live in
houses little better than ruins. One
of them collapsed during a storm on
January JJ, killing 10 persans.
The foo ticket system, i'. adds, is
another Ji.rcc of hardship ' to the
Jews. In some Galician towns a Jew
gets only 40 ounces of rye flour per
week while others get four pounds.
The same discrimination against
them is shown in the distribution of
coal and salt. , ' .
"If this wrong be not soon stopped,"
the paper declares, "the Jews will die

Shrewd Investors Are Asking How
Since running our announcement in this paper the past few days we
have been-receiving a great many requests for our Gusher Oil Bulle-
tin, explaining our proposition in detail. Every mail the number of in
quiries is getting larger, andVe will no doubt have to greatly in
crease our office force in order to be able to promptly mail out our
Orders Coming Inery Rapidly"
We have already started receiving quite a large number of orders
for tracts from people who have received our Bulletin, and after
studying our proposition over carefully, have decided to join us in
, the profits to be made In our development work. We believe that
nearly anyone with a little red blooded courage will buy at least one -,
quarter-acre tract, when they understand how our offer combines
safety of investment with reasonable possibilities of tremendous
profits.' , ' -

NOT OIL STOCK, but a full quarter acre of real oil land. Each ,
tract is now selling for $30.00. Warranty Deed with each tract. The
best geologists in the world, those of the U. S. government, say that
High Island has indications similar to the famous old Spindletop, '
northeast of our property, where wells came in at a reported pro-.
duction of 75,000 barrels of oil per day. .
' We Guarantee To Drill Two Big Wells : :
One to be drilled' on this wonderful prospective property, and one
on our positively proven lease in Famous Humble Gusher Oil Field,,
already surrounded by big wells, with oil positively proven to be on
our lease. : 1

Each tract purchaser shares proportionately in 50 of the profits
from the two wells we guarantee to drill, and also shares in the
same.ratio in the profits made from all other wells we may drill later
You Receive 10 Of Oil From Your Tract
If your tract, or tracts, is selected upon which to drill, you would
receive a royalty of 10 of all oil produced and saved in addition to
your pro rata profits. For instance, if we bring in a 2,000-barrel

would be approximately $400.00 per day.

THIS WOMAN HAD
' SHE WAS A GIRL
Finds Relief After 30 Years
'Til Always Praise Tanlac,"
"It certainly seems wonderful,
after trying almost every conceivable
medicine during the past thirty years,
that a few bottles of Fanlac should
(rive me that lontf hoped for relief,
but it has and I'll praise it as long
as I live." This interesting and re.
markable statement was made by
Mrs. Hester E. Napper, in an inter
view at her residence, 1020 South
Second street, Salt Lake City, re
cently. Mrs. Napper is the wife of a
valued employe of the National Bis
cuit company. . '
"Ever since I was a girl of 16,"
Mrs. Napper continued, "I have suf
fered from stomach trouble in the
form of gastritis, and "other compli
cations, which, as I grew older, kept
getting worse. Soon after meals my
stomach would fill with gas and
bloat me up causing almost unbear
able pain and a pressure around my
heart that almost cut off my breath.
I couldn't eat an apple or an orancra
without it making me almost death
ly sick, and milk was jugt like poi
son to me. I had no appetite at all,
could eat no meats of any kind, and
for years I simply suffered agony.
At times I -was almost prostrated
with headache and my nerves were
all shattered,..! was so nervous and
miserable I could get no rest day
or night and felt tired and worn
out all the time. Last fall my condi
tion became so serious that my fam
ily, was alarmed about me. I had given
up nearly all hopes of ever getting
relief and was really afraid I would
soon die unless I could get some
thing to help me. .
"About the first' of January I read
the testimonial of a party I know,
and who had gotten such wonderful
results from Tanlac that I decided
to try it myself. Well, if Tanlac had
failed me I don't know what I would
have done, as I think I had tried ev.
erything'else. But it hasn't failed
me, I'm, thankful to say. On the other
hand I feel just like a new person
since taking it I didn't feel much
benefit from the first bottle, but by
the time my second bottle was gone
I felt a general improvement My
appetite picked up and 'since that
time I have had no more pain or i
smothering snells. I have taken three
bottles now and can sleep all night
long, and that tired, worn-out, feel
ing has left me. I am not the least
bit nervous any more and my stom
ach is in such fine condition that I
can eat meats and anything else W
want wimour tne sngntest discom
fort from it. I find reai pleasure now
in Jiving, as I'm able to work and
since Tanlac has done so much for
me I feel like I ought to do what
I can to let others know about it"

When Itching Stops
- Bell Telephone Service
Is for Uncle San
- Before Anyone Else
When war was declared the entire Bell Telephone System
including our equipment and our employees was placed at the service
of the government. . '
AH the great military bureaus, training camps, cantonments, navy
yards, munition plants, arsenals and warehouses hava )been connected
, by telephone.
The Bell System has organized and furnished to the government
fourteen complete battalions of trained telephone men who are either
constructing, maintaining and operating telephone lines for the forces
in France or. are in mobilization camps ready to embark. A great
number of our employees have also joined the national guard or other
military organizations or have been drafted. These thousands of
trained Workers cannot be readfly replaced. . ;
.The Bell telephone men now with the army in France, "recently
' completed the first all-American telephone system over-seas. Cable
dispatches to the press say that it is a great treat for the officers to use
an American-built telephone system after trying to talk on the lines
in use over there. r
With our working forces depleted, with the scarcity of equipment
growing greater and with telephone materials costing practically double
,what they did two years ago, our problems are becoming very serious.
When you use the telephone won't you please remember the diffl
cnlties under which we are furnishing service?
' -;;'- ' y. ;' : ' '
Won't ou help u to "do W bit" by not asking for additional
telephone equipment at this time and by making no unnecessary local
or long distance calls T '
There is one safe, dependable treatment
that relieves itching torture and skin irri
tation almost instantly and that cleanses
and soothes the skin.
Ask any druggist for a 35e or $1 bottle
of zemo and apply it as directed. Soon
you will find that irritations, pimples,
blackheads eczema, blotches, ringworm
and similar skin troubles will disappear.
A little zemo. the penetrating, satisfy.
