HIGH SCHOOLS TO
Four' Teams Made Up From
School Teams to Play in
. Greater Omaha and
. Commercial Leaaues.
When tlie Commercial and Great
er. Omaha- 'bskrr ball leagues in
augurate the . 1919-1920 amateur
basket ball season January 6 and 7,
respectively, four high school quin
tets will be represented on the floor
of the Y. M. C. A. playing league
contests (or first time.
Commerce High first team and the
Council Bluffs High school five have
joined the ranks of the Greater Oma
ha league, the class A boys, while
the Commerce Reserve and South
High will play in the Commercial
High school followers no doubt
will turn out in full force to cheer
their favorites on to victory as the
rivalry between the different schools
is intense and snappy Rimes are
' Central Failed to Enter.
. Central High school at first in
tended to fall in line with the other
schools and join the Greater Omaha
league, but for some unknown rea
son Coach Mulligan did not enter
his squad. . Coach White of the
Council Bluffs quintet is confident of
carrying off the flag in the Greater
Omaha circuit. . .
The Council Bluffs five this year
will be composed of an entirely new
squad, not a player of last year's
team in the lineup. .
How the teams in the Commercial
and Greater Omaha league will line
up the opening games is still unde
cided.as the schedule committee will
meet Saturday ajfternopn.
, Although there were no games
originally scheduled at the "Y" Sat
urday night, two ganys probably
will be staged. One game, however,
is certain that between the First
Christians of Council Bluffs, last
year's title holders of the Church
league, and the Per.rl Memorials,
runners-up. The PearJ Memorials
were scheduled to play the United
Presbyterians of South Side last
Tuesday night, the opening of'the
Church league schedule, but since
their opponents withdrew at the
eleventh hour, too late for the cham
pions to make their appeirince, the
game was scheduled for Saturday
Had Been Troubled More or
Less, for Thirty. Years
Feels Fine Since Taking
"I was just telling my wife the
other day that this is the first time
in twenty years I have felt like
making ready for an old-fashioned
Christmas dinner," said John Boyd,
a prosperous farmer, R. F. D. 1,
Peoria, 111., while telling on Decem

had receid from Tanlac. Continuing-,
"I live ten miles from here and
m in a hurry to get back home, but
I wouldn't go back without a bottle
of Tanlac if I had to stay in town
all night long to get it. I have suf
fered more or less with stomach
trouble for thirty years," he went
on, "and Tanlac is fhe only med
icine I have ever found that did me
a particle of good, and this is say
ing a great deal, for I have tried a
lrt- tP Ai-fta-rani- Vinfta in trior fimp.
I had a burning in my stomach all

have terrible spells of cramps,
caused by something I ate. I was
always miserable. I- had a very
poor appetite and just had to force
down every mouthful I ate, and I
haven't been able to eat a single
meal in all these thirty years with
any satisfaction. I could get but
little sleep as I was so restless I
would just roll and toss from one
side of the bed to the other all night
long. I continued to get worse
until I became so weak and run
down I was unable to work and for
months before I began taking Tan
lac I hadn't been away from home,
and it was all I could do to drag
myself around at all.
"When I began taking Tanlac I
had been in this bad condition so
long and had tried so many dif
ferent medicines without getting the
least benefit from them I had given
, up all hope of ever getting any
better, but only a few days after
I started" taking it I was a happy
man, for I noticed I was getting
better with every dose, I con
tinued taking Tanlac and my amje
tite continued to improve until it
was almost impossible for my wife
to cook enough for me to eat, and
the best part of it all was that I
eould eat all I wanted and anything
I .wanted without suffering the
least bit from it afterwards. .That
burning in my stomach, those ter-
, rible cramping pains and the bloat
ing, left mo so suddenly I was
actually surprised. And sleep!
Why, I can sleep just as sound as
a log all .night long without ever
waking up once, and always wake
up feeling fine and full of energy
and ready for my work. I have re-
gained my strength so I can do as
much work as I ever could. So you
see why I am so anxious to get this
bottle of Tanlac for I owe all my
good condition to it, and I never
expect to be without it There is
nothing in the world I would take
for "wha Tanlac has done for me,
and I intend to praise it as long as
I live." .
Tanlac is sold in Omaha at all

About the time that Moran met Willard, Dillon and Fulton, Mary

ROOT FINDS NEW
POINTS TO FIGHT
Brings Suit in New Jersey
Trenton, N. J., Dec. 25. Another
legal attack on prohibition was
launched when Elihu Root, its chief
counsel of Christian Feigenspan
Brewing corporation, filed a bill of
complaint in the United States dis
trict court asking for an injunction
restraining United States District
Attorney Bodine and Charles Duffy,
collector of internal revenue, from
enforcing the prohibition law.- The
bill declares that both the Volstead
act and the eighteenth amendment
are unconstitutional. .
The attack on the eighteenth
amendment is based on the ground
that it deals . with a subject outside
any power granted to congress, is
a violation of the tenth amendment
in regard to "states' rights, and is
in fact, not an amendment to the
constitution, "but mere legislation."
. It is also claimed the amendment
is null and void because two-thirds
of the members of congress did not
by joint resolution or otherwise
declare that they deemed it neces
sary. Such action by congress," Mr.
R'oot argued, is a condition prece
dent to any amendment of article 5,
of the United States constitution.
The Volstead law is brought
under fire on the ground that it
takes away private property with
out compensation and also that it
arbitrarily classifies as intoxicants,
"liquors which are not, in fact, intox
icating.", There i$ one motor vehicle for
every . IS persons in the United
States. The total number of pas

IN BACK AND
Diamond Ring, Cash and
; $20,000 Securities Are
Left on' Body.
Mount Clemons Mich., Dec. 25.
The body of J. Stanley Brown, with
four bullet wounds in the chest' and
skull battered, was found in an auto
mobile four miles from this city.
The murdered man was the son of
the late John H. Brown, millionaire
cigar manufacturer of Detroit.
Detectives assigned to the case
questioned the wife of the victim
for several hours. When the body
was found a two and one-half carat
diamond ring, $20,000 in securities
and several hundred dollars in cash,
were on the lody, causing the de
tectives to believe that the man was
killed for motives other than' rob
bery. '1'he only clues found are a wrench
which lay near Brown's body and
a grcasc-staincd coat, evidently be
longing to some mechanic.
Brown, who was found by a farm
er, had his hands on the steering
wheel and his feet on the emerffencv

being shot. vThe shots were fired

It is a fact that any physician can easily verify
by looking over his Case Recordsthat the
majority of women patients who come to him
are more or less run down and devitalized,
and that his remedies frequently fail to pro
duce permanent and satisfactory results un
less they are supported and supplemented by
course of tonio and systematic strengthening
treatment for the whole system, like "REOLO."
Young girls frequently need a tonic treatment
during the period of delayed development, or
maturity, when the first symptoms of anaemia,
or nervous and digestive disorders develop. ,
A little later, when motherhood, both prospec
tive and present arrives, a strength builder is
Seeded to overcome the debility and maintain
le vitality during this wonderful period of
woman's existence. A strength renewer is
especially needed where motherhood has
weakened the resistive powers or where pre
lpnged nursing has made too great a demand
upon the mother's system.
Later, during the most critical period of a
woman's life "the change, of life" various
serious disturbances are apt to occur, neuras
thenia and even insanity manifest themselves.
The weakest point of the body is where fhe
breakdown is most apt to occur, and it is only
by the aid of a strengthening and revitalizing
tonic and blood builder like "REOLO" that the
resistance can be maintained, and this danger
ous period bridged over successfully.
Later on, when old age approaches and there
is an ever increasing lack of vitality the
exhausted tissue must be given renewed life
and activity to enable the body to utilize to
' the utmost, whatever vitality and energy it
still retains. i
Restores Vigor and Vitality
b has remarkable tonic and reconstructive
properties. It improves the appetite, digestion
and assimilation; increases the red blood cells
and hemoglobin of the blood tones up the
heart and nervous system and gives renewed
strength and vitality.
By special arrangement with the Dr. A L
Reusing Laboratories, Akron, Ohio, we have
been appointed Licensees for the distribution
of "REOLO" direct from the Laboratories,
certified by Dr. Reusing and positively guaran
teed to give satisfactory results , or we will
