President Wilson's address before congress was the one out standing feature of today's stock market, trading evincing no pronounced trend prior to the publication ot the message on the news tickers. Interest centered mainly In the presi dent's earnest plea for a modification of ante-war conditions respecting the rail roads and that group made immediate re sponse, secondary as well as standard shares advancing 1 to 214 points after an early period of hesitation. Wall Street chose to Interpret this anil other features of the president's message as a strong Indication that the admlnistra lton Is In no degree committed to govern ment owenrshlp of transportation and utilities. Bankers expressed themselves In complete accord with the chief executive's views regarding the Importance of deter mining without delay the amount of the tax levies for the next two years so as ta facilitate the country's domestic foreign commerce. Apart from the rails, the market regis tered few changes of Interest. United States Steel and kindred Issues were steady to firm, motors and oils denoted conflicting speculative sentiment and coppers, leathers and specialties ended at mixed gains and losses. Shippings were active and strong at the beginning, but lost ground later to the accompaniment of reports that the proposed sale of Mercantile Marine tonnage to this government might encounter serious opposition from British Interests. Sales amounted to 476,000 shares. The only feature to bonds was the ac tivity of a few industrial Issues, the gen eral list easing. Liberty fourth 414s con tinued to sag, breaking to 96.60. Total sales (par value) aggregated $11,950,000. United States bonds were unchanged on call. OMAHA PRODUCE Chicago Grain and Provisions. Chicago, Dec. 2. Official estimates that 300,000,000 people in trans-Atlantic coun tries were depending largely on food con servation In the United States to avert hunger had a bullish effect here today on grain and provisions. Corn closed firm l!4c to 214o net higher, with December and January both $1.2814 to $1.28. Oats finished lie off to lo up, and provisions at an advance of 10c to 60c. Throughout the day, the dominating factor In the corn market was the food administration statement as to the need of huge supplies to meet the food shortage In Europe. In this connection, traders took particular notice of the avowal that 200, 000,000 persons had been added to the foreign bread line which the United States was begged to serve. A bullish construc tion was also placed on a statement by the secretary of agriculture that he could see no good reason for a drop In prices. Pre dictions that the coming United States wheat crop would be a record breaker failed to exert any lasting contrary Influ ence on the trade. Oats averaged higher In sympathy with corn. Receipts were not heavy, and coun try offerings to arrive were light. Firmness In the hog market together with the strength of corn lifted provisions. Packing interests appeared to lead the buying.

Linseed. ) Dultuh, Minn., Dec. I. Linseed on track, $3.(6; to arrive $3.61 Don't close your eyes to the warn ing which nature gives, when un sightly pimples appear on your face and other parts of the body. Not only are these pimples and splotches disfiguring, but they lead to serious skin diseases, that spread and cause the most discomforting irritation and pain. Sometimes they foretell Eczema, boils, blisters, scaly eruptions and other annoyances that burn like flames of fire, and make you feel that your skin is ablaze. When these symptoms appear on any part of the body, take prompt steps to rid the blood of these dis orders. And the one remedy which has no equal as a purifier is S. S. S., the purely vegetable blood medi cine, which has been on the market for more than fifty years. It is sold by druggists everywhere. If you are afflicted with any form of skin disease, do not expect to be cured by lotions, ointments, salves and other local remedies, as they can not possibly reach the source of the trouble, which is in the blood. Begin taking S. S. S. to- j day, and write a complete history of your case to our chief medical ad 1 viser who will give you special in structions, without charge, write at once to Swift Specific Co., 441 Swift Laboratory, Atlanta, Ga. Adv. Commerce High Cripples Win from Atlantic 7 to 0 After the shutout handed the Ma roon Squad by South High in their annual grid meet, November 22, Coach Evans took his squad to At lantic to meet the fast team there. In the opening minutes of the sec ond period, the locals took the ball, a delayed pass from South to Snygg with interference by Nicotero, en abled the runner to place the oval behind the opponents' goal. Kline kicked goal. Score 7-0. Atlantic came back in the second half with a rush, but could not over come the Commerce stone-wall. Commerce was in possession of the ball for the most of the remainder of the game. Only once did Atlan tic come near scoring, when by a series of off-tackle plunges they had come under the shadow of the Com merce goal, only to be held for downs. Commerce took the ball and began her march.

"Every body is thinking of the 'flu' and the minute they get a headache or lit tle fever they decide they have the ; 'flu.' This is the season of the year when colds are most prevalent People shouldn't get scared as soon as they get a cold and imagine they have the 'flu.' Of course, it is wise to take care even of a cold." Reports of a number of cases of influenza at several of the Omaha schools are being canvassed under ; direction of Dr. Manning with a view to closing these schools. "We are making a thorough can vass," he said, "and if the number ' of children ill is above a certain per centage in any one school that school will be ordered closed. We believe, however, that many children are being kept out by their parents through fear that they may catch the influenza." Dr. Manning notes a "flare-up" of the "flu" in Omaha and says that the same condition prevails over a large part of the state. He has great hopes of the efficacy of the individ ual campaign by which an effort is being made to get each person tft be his own preventative by cover ing up coughs and sneezes and by keeping in the open air and keeping houses well ventilated. i I: s. !
