STATE TO. BRING
"FW ACTION FOR
Reed and Pool Rule That Con
troversy Over What Goes on
Ballot Must Come indif
(From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Neb., March 18. (Special.)
A new construction of tlie Nebraska
law relating to injunctions to restrain
the secretary of state from placing ti
tles and other things on the election
ballot, will necessitate bringing a new
action to cover the suit brought by
Edna M. Barkley and 24 other suf
fragists in the Lancaster county dis
trict court to restrain Secretary of
State Pool from placing on the elec
tion ballot at the ccming general elec
tion a recall of the partial suffrage act
passed by the last legislature.
The Nebraska act, which is an exact
copy of the Oregon law, already has
lpn naccprl unnn liv til Orpo-rm
I j - -r " '
courts. The court has declared that
a citizen has no authority under the,
- Jaw to bring a restraining action in
" vsuch matter, but that the action must
hp brnticyrtf hv trip statp itsplf in an
ex rel proceedings.
Attorney General Reed and Secre
tary of State Pool assert that in the
new act to be brought they expect
to admit all contention of the plain
tiffs so that there will be as little de
lay as possible, and a statement to
that effect was filed with the district
court today. In the statement the
officials say in part:
"It is the intention of the defendant
' to stand upon the demurrer so it will
require the introduction of no evi
dence, if the legal position is not well
taken by the defendant. If, however,
the demurrer is sustained, the defect
is fatal in this suit and a new action
must be started and I assure the pub
lic that an actio will be commenced
in such a manner as to give all the
parties a right to be heard touching
the validity or invalidity of the ref
erendum petition, and it seems that the
state is the only one that can instiute
such a proceeding."

caused by pests ii the way of plant
diseases were taking a toll of our
production which could be made a
material increase if these pests were
eradicated. He suggested to the
agents that they include in their pro
gram a definite fight against oat smut,
corn smut, and dry rot and scab in
potatoes. His address was followed
by that of Mr. Rechten of the De
partment of Agriculture, who has
been assigned to Nebraska for the
taskvof eradication of rust.

Alkali Makes Soap
Bad For Washing Hair
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali, which is very
injurious, as it dries the scalp and
makes the hair brittle. ,
The best thing 10 use is just plain
mulsified cocoanut oil, for this is
pure and entirely greaseless. It's very
cheap, and beats the most -expensive
soaps or anythiag else all to pieces.
You can get this at- any drug store,
and a few ounces will last the whole
family for months.
Simply moisten the hair with water
and rub it in, about a teaspoonful is
all that is required. It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy lather,
cleanses thoroughly and rinses out
easily. The hair dries quickly and
evenly, and is soft, fresh looking,
bright, fluffy, wavy and easy to
handle. Besidesit loosens and takes
out every particle of dust, dirt and.
