WATER BOARD TO
BASIN ICE HOUSE
Will Have 6,000-Ton Capa
city and the Ice Will Be Fit
The Metropolitan Water board
will erect a 6,000-ton capacity ice
house at the Florence water basins
for the storage of natural ice to be
sold next season by the municipal
Fred Larmon, chief engineer of
the water plant, is preparing the
plans for the structure, which will
be erected in time for this season's
Will Cost $20,000.
The house will be 100x160 feet
floor dimensions, and 40 feet in
height. It will cost $20,000 and the
insulation will be of the best:
The present storage capacity in
connection with the municipal
ice plant at Twentieth street and
Foppleton avenue is 8,500 tons. The
To Renew Complexion
If ths excessive user of cosmetics only
knew the impression her artificiality really
makes upon others, she would quickly
seek means of training a natural complex
ion. Let her acquire the mercolized wax
habit, discarding make-ups entirely, and
she will soon have the kind of complexion
that women envy and men admire. It's
o easy to get an ounce of mercolized wax
at any drug store, use ntahtly like cold
cream and wash it off mornings. And the
results are so remarkable. Gradually the
lifeless cuticle peels off, in almost invisible
flaky particles. In a week or so there's a
brand new complexion, clear, velvety, soft,
of girlish color and texture.
The treatment is so simple, harmless,
and so marvelously effeetive, the wonder
is that every woman whose skin ia with
ered, discolored, rough, freckled or pim
pled, has not already adopted It. Adv.
popularity of tht "jitney" Ice sta
tions during thii leason convinced
R. B. Howell, general manager of
the water plant, that additional
storage facilities should be pro
vided. For Domestice Uie.
"The ice we cut from the basins
at Florence will be fit for domestic
use and will supplement our manu
factured ice," Mr. Howell said.
Mr. Howell believes that another
jlant lor the manufacture of ice will
be built by the Metropolitan Water
board next year.

Hogs Take Slump of
$1 and Reach Lowest
Price Level of Year
Hogs took a sudden slump of $1
yesterday on the Omaha live stock
market. Following a decline of
about 75 cents Tuesday, the market
fell again sharply, reaching the low
est level this year. Average cost
Tuesday was $17.21 per 100 pounds.
Continued agitation against the high
cost of living and cessation of the
eastern demand are given as the
chief causes for the decline.
A decline of 50 cents to $1 was
recorded in Chicago yesterday.

My Heart and My Husband
ADELE GARRISON'S New Phase of
"Revelations of a Wife"
What Mr. Prentisi Came to
Ahl Ladies, good morning. This
is a terrible thing for the Bayview
schools, an awful thing, a horrible
Mr. William Prentiss, senior mem
ber of the Bayview school board,
appeared to run out of breath and
adjectives at the same moment. To
bridge the gap he took off his hat
which he had not troubled himself
to remove at his entrance, and wiped
his perceptibly moist foreheaij, with
a large, white silk handkerchief
with a border of purple butterflies.
Mr. Prentiss is an unusually large
man, and his face was mottled from
the heat of the walk. The combi
nation of his red perspiring face
drawn into the lugubrious lines
which he thought fitting for the
occasion, and his fantastic handker
chief was almost too much for my
risibles. But I realized that Alice
Holcombe was under a greater nerv
ous strain than I, knew that she
would like to have me take the bur
den of the conversation upon myself,
so I straightened my lips into an
answering dolefulness and answered
with resigned meekness:
"Yes, indeed, it is, Mr. Prentiss.
We came early because we thought
we might be needed. Of course the
pupils will be much upset today."
"Of course,' of course. Mrs. Gra
ham. Yes, yes." Mr. Prentiss has
an annoying habit of emphasizing
his observations by repeating them.
"That is what I have come for. The
school board held a special meeting
very late last night, and decided to
close the schools until after the fu
neral. You know Mrs. Stockbridge
was the daughter of one of the
board, and we think it is only fitting
under the circumstances that the
schools be closed as a mark of re
spect to her memory."
"That ought to be most gratifying
to her family," I murmured
"Yes, yes," he returned absently,
then cleared his throat in embar
rassed fashion. I decided the most
importapt part of his errand had not
yet been told.
"Mr. Stockbridge tells me that you
fwo ladies" Mr. Prentiss is the type
of man who abhors the word
"woman" "have joint authority
when he is absent. He asked me to
tell you when you reopen school
after the funeral to proceed with the
work, the final examinations and
everything just as if he were here.
He said you both were perfectly
familar with the work and his plans,
and could carry it on to completion
Alice Holcombe's voice, clear,
incisive, struck into conversation.
"What does that mean?" srje
asked. "Is not Mr. Stockbridge
going to finish his work himself?"
Do You Mean"
Mr. Prentiss turned nearly as pur
ple with embarrassment as his fan
tastically bordered handkerchief.
"Well, you see, Miss Holcombe,"
he said ponderously at last, "you
see, there's bound to be a great
deal of talk, Oh, a great deal of
talk about this affair in the town.
Indeed, the way people are already
putting their heads together and
figuring out the true inwardness of
the thing is astounding, simply
astounding. I have not seen the
village so stirred up in all of the
time I have lived in it, and that is 40
years, 40 years. I came here when I
was a child of "
"Pardon me, Mr. Prentiss, Alice
Holcombe interrupted his reminis
cences ruthlessly, "but what has the
talk in the village got to do with
Mr. Stockbridge's finishing his
work in the school? Has he for
gotten how nearly the school year is
ended? It is preposterous that he
should not be here, no matter how
much he is suffering."
Mr. Prentiss cleared his throat
"It is not a question of of Mr.
Stockbridge's sentiments," he said
slowly, "and of course, it is very
unfortunate for the pupils that their
work should be upset at this time.
But we feel that it would be far worse
for them to continue their work
under the daily guidance of a man
who is under grave "
Alice Holcombe sprang to her
feet, her eyes glittering.
"Do you mean to tell me," she
blazed, "that you are going to ask
him to resign?"
Mr. Prentiss glared at him with
"We have not yet made up our
minds," he said coldly, "but it is
most likely, most likely that we
shall do so."
Woman Believes She
Was Victim of Stock
Mrs. Lola Records of Harlan, la.,
reported to police yesterday that
she fell victim to what she believes
is a stock swindling game. She lost
her savings of $115.
According to Mrs. Records, she
met a "big fat bald-headed stranger"
at Lake Manawa. This stranger in
troduced himself as a salesman of
the Tonapah Consolidated Mining
company of Los Angeles, Cal., and
sold her $115 worth of stock in the
company. . ,
He said his name was Billy Madden
and that he lived at the Wellington
Inn. The next day Mrs. Records
was to meet Madden at Seventeenth
and Farnam streets. Although she
waited for more than an hour, Mad
den failed to show up, she says.
