To Banish Hairs

package oil delatone and mix into a
paste enough of the powder and
water to cover the hairy surface.
This should be left on the skin
about 2 minutes, then removed and

Bootlegger Fails in Attempt
to Transport Booze Hid

Missouri Pacific train No. 103 ac
complished part of its journey
from "Drying Missouri" to "Dry
Omaha" yesterday on whisky steam
instead of water steam.
It was the crowning achievement
of man's effort to transport liquor
into a dry state!
Here's the tale as it was reparted
at central police station last night:
An enterprising (?) bootlegger in
Kansas City, possibly an attache of
train No. 103, secreted two large
suit cases and two gunny sacks
full of whisky in the water tank on
the eugine tender.
What a splendid idea! On arriv
ing in Omaha all that would be nec
essary would be to fish the contra
band from the watery depths and
$250 worth of good, cold whisky
would be his!
But, fate intervened. The suit
cases were of the cheaper grade
cardboard, to be exact, and when
they came in contact wiih theWater
in the tank they began to crumble.
Just after leaving Atchison, Kan.,
the engineer noticed bits of card
board floating in the water gauge.
The train was stopped and the
Dozens of bottles of whisky
poured out their precious contents
into the pipe leading to the boiler.
The train had been running on
The gunny sacks remained intact
and their spirits were seized by
Officer Joe Dlask, stationed at
the Union depot, investigated the re
port. He discredits the belief that
a bootlegger hid the whisky in the
"I think some bootlegger found
himself cornered and dropped his
whisky into the tank to escape ar
rest and conviction," said Dlask.

before members of the Nebraska
branch of the League to Enforce
Peace and Omaha Jews at the Oma

"There was enough poison in this
ship to annihilate an entire German
city, and enough more had been
manufactured to destroy the entire
German nation. It took Germany
years to perfect its mustard gas. A
poison 72 times more deadly was

the telephone company to have an
order from him before they could
submit the questions to arbitration.
"The telephone company has the
proper machinery set up and is will

Woman Asks Divorce
And $25,000 Damages
In Alienation Case
Fanny Rubenstem filed suit in dis
trict court yesterday against her
husband, Frank, for a divorce, and
another suit against David Spector
and Benna Spector and Peshe Ise
man for $25,000 damages for alleged
alienation of her husband's affec
tions. She and Frank were married April
14, 1919. At that time she was a
widow and he a widower with a
baby 15 months old. He was board
ing at the home of the Spectors,
Twenty-fourth and Caldwell streets,
she says, and was paying $12.50 a
month for the care of his child, and
$9 a month for his own board and
room the one day a week that he
was home. She says he had also
loaned the Spectors about $1,000.
When Frank showed signs of mar
rying again, the Spectors tried to
break up the impending wedding,
she alleges. She says they conspired
after the marriage to alienate the af
fections of her husband s'o that they
might again have their profitable
boarder back. She says they cir
culated false statements about her
so that finally her husband left her.'

man for 19 years, is said to have
been the first man in the police de
partment to have refused a promo

tween a patrolman and a detective
is $300 a year.
