THE BEE: OMAHA, FRIDAY, JANUARY SI, 1919. South Side HOGS CONTRACT UE17 SICKNESS SILIILAR TO FLU Delays in Shipment and on Market Thought to Be Cause; Farmers Combat : Trouble by Vaccination. A hog disease which is not chol era, and which has many of the ymptoms of influenza, is spreading ever Iowa, Nebraska and other neighboring states, according to Dr. If. Busman, head of the bureau of animal industry. Dr. Busman is con ducting rigid post-mortem, and ante mortem examinations of all ship ments. rarmers are aware that siirh a disease is prevalent," said Dr. Bus man, "they have been warned not to ship hogs affected with it. I believe in many cases the hogs contract the disease after leaving the premises of the farmer. There are delays in shipment, and more delays after they reach the market, during which conditions are not normal, and a contraction of the disease is the re sult. "Many farmers are combating the disease by vaccination. I don't know what results they get. The sickness has been spreading for two months. The hog is sick for a week or two during which time it losses much flesh. The disease, known as hemorrhagic septicaemia, affects It with high fever and fits of sneezing. The hogs usually recover. No statistics have been compiled to show the effect on the Omaha market. According to Dr. Busman there was one day when eight to 10 loads were affected. Of each aver ape load there is not more than three per cent affected. In one or two loads, however, as high as SO per cent was affected. Nine Face Vagrancy Charge in South Side Police Court Eight men and one woman were arraigned in South Side police court yesterday for vagrancy. All were released on condition that they find employment, except Samuel Palmer and Elizabeth Diamond, negroes, S014 South Twenty-sixth street, who were sentenced to 90 dayaeaqh, and Henry Pier. 2509 N Street, also a negro, who was given 30 days. Police Captain Madsen believes that a war on vagrancy is the most practical way of doing away with crime. It is his theory that the idle man is dangerous. As a result of this policy there are few, if any, unemployed men on the South Side. To bear out his theory, the captain points to a decided lull in burglaries, stick-ups and con games during the last month. AT THE THEATERS m HE BETTER 'OLE," the J very successful comedy made on the Bairnsfather cartoons, will be presented at the Brandeis for five nights, beginning with February 16. This piece is the sensation ot the New lork season. Accompanying it is the well known story of how it was offered to one manager after another, without suc cess; George M. Cohan thought it might be made over into something suitable to American tastes, and even considered doing it. Charles Coburn learned of it. and while the wise men of Longacre Sauare de bated on , how the piece could be "jazzed up," he bought it and pro duced it in his little neighborhood theater down in Greenwich Village. New York fell in love with Old Bill, "Alf and 'Arrv. just as America fell in love with the cartoons, and in a few weeks the big managers were after Coburn to move his company up town. He took it to the Cort, where it is delighting capacity audi ences. Boston. Philadelphia, and other eastern cities have laughed and cried over it, and Omaha is to get its chance while the play is yet fresh. It will be one of the few current season successes offered here. If you have not laughed over the gay frolics of the younger Foys, who are appearing this week at the Orpheum with their comedian fa ther, Eddie Foy. this will remind you that you have today and tomor row left to make seat reservations. Of the two featured acts, one is of fered by the charming vocalist. Helen Trix, assisted by her songful sister, Josephine. Another is the amusing nonsense of the jolly jes ter, Walter Brower. There is a dog act which is especially well liked by children. Three more performances will be given at the Boyd of the current week's bill, "The Confessions of a War Bride." It is a touching story of love and sacrifice, well told, with plenty of comedy to relieve the high tension. On Snnday afternoon The Unmarried Mother" will open a week's stay, both being offered at poular prices. PICTURE OF 'BILL' IS NOT AT WHITE ELEPHANT SALE Police and Soldiers Required to Keep Back the Crowds; Large Assortment on Display. Three hours before the doors opened on the second White Ele phant sale at the Auditorium at noon, doormen and soldiers had to be stationed at all entrances to keep out the eager shoppers. When the doors swung. open at 1 o'clock, crowds made a bee-line for the children s clothing booth, with the same unerring instinct which carried them to this booth last year. In anticipation of the demand, Mrs. N. P. Dodge and Mrs. William Hill Clarke this year gathered an extra large amount of children's clothing. Stocks will be replenished each day of the three-day sale, officers of the National League for Woman's Service announce. Donations will be accepted until the last hour be fore the sale closes. The restaurant on the Auditorium stage is in charge of Mrs. L. T. Healey. Chicken dinner at 50 cents, sandwiches, home-made pies and cakes and coffee will be served. Dancing is the special attraction each night of the sale. Saturday night wilt be the big auction. Policemen, plain clothes men and soldiers will, mingle through the crowds. A wrapping and checking system has also been installed to do away with thee onfusion of last year. "Half of our stock last year went out of this building with no means of knowing whether it was paid for or not," one of the members re marked.

What to do with the kaiser's picture, framed, together with a German motto the gift of an un known donor, bothered Mrs. A. L. Reed when she arrived at her post in the picture booth. Mrs. Reed removed the kaiser's picture and placed the empty frame on sale. Two handsomely framed portraits of Bismarck are also included in the collection. "We'll sell them, too, for the frames," said Mrs. Reed. South Side Brevities Th Elshth B class of South Central m-hool held an election of clans officers Tuesday.

In Kitty Gordon's first picture for the United States, "Adele," which is showing at the Muse this week, she wears gowns which are valued at $25,000 as a part of the production. And during a great part of the play she wears the uni form of a Red Cross nurse. "The Greatest Thing in Life," which has been at the Strand all of this week, will be held over there for the remaining two days because of the fact that there are thousands of Omaha film fans who have been unable to see it. It is one of D. W. Griffith's masterpiece productions, not as large as "Hearts of the World" and some of his previous pictures, but having in all the fine points of production which made the others such successes. Some of the battle scenes in the short part of it, which carries the war scenes, are actual photographs of the famous battle of the Marne. ' v Theda Bara in "The Light" at the Sun this week plays a part which is of interest to all Omahans just at this time her role being that of a wicked woman who is regenerated and becomes a model of virtue and self-sacrifice in place of a waster. It is a problem play and one that proclaims to the world in her own inimitable manner Miss Bara's belief that there is a place for a woman who has sinned, pro vided she is given an opportunity to lead a better life. Another point that has interested many patrons in Theda Bara this week is the an nouncement that she will come to the Muse a week from Sunday in the greatest of her productions, "Salome."

The theme of the scenario is of a de voted wife who sees her husband interested in a woman who believes that she is his 'affinity. But the wife is clever enough to know the weakness of hubby and she invites the affinity to spend the week-end with them. And then she pretends to break her ankle and the work of the strange woman in the house in building hubby a pleasant break fast utterly defeats her designs upon him and he returns to his wife not knowing that she has forged the weapons which have brought to him his real love. The photoplay, "The Shepherd of the Hills," now playing at the Bran deis, is made from the novel of the same name by Harold Bell Wright The actress engaged for the part of "Sammy Jane is an expert horse' woman. Mr. Wright selected a young woman who was born in Arizona, and was practically raised in the saddle. In the picture, the scenes of "Sammy's" wild night ride down the mountain side when she rides through the lightning and rain to save the good old Shepherd from the lawless Wash Gibbs gang, the spectator is shown, very clear ly, why Mr. Wright emphasized the point that this actress must know how to ride horseback. This scene is one of the most thrilling ever seen upon the screen. "Your Little Pets Need Cascarets" When children quarrel and fight. See if the little tongues are white.
