Grain Exchange Committee
Protest Measure to Lift
' Guaranteed Wheat
Price. ;
.Representatives of the Omaha
inin exchange at 10 a. m. yesterday
attended a hearing: before the sen
ate agricultural committee at Wash
ington, D. C, upon the Gro'nna bill,
which provides for the lifting of the
government's guaranteed prices on
, wheat.
Local grain men hope for the de
feat of the measure, since the in
fluence of the government guarantee
to farmerg on the 1919 crop might
carry wheat prices down. Accord
ingly, the executive board instructed
O. M. Smith, president of the Grain
exchange to appoint a committee of
three to attend the hearing.
J. A. Linderholm, S. S. Carlisle
and E. F. Peck were selected by
President Smith to represent this
Mr. Smith said yesterdlay that lie
did not expect a special report from
tiie committee upon the situation un
til its return, and that perhaps the
first information that wfll be received
here will be a news dispatch of the
action taken by the senate agricul
tural committee after the hearing.
The Omaha committee is also
expected to make efforts to obtain
Jlines of the railroad administration
relative tov his order prohibiting
shipments of corn out of Omaha
from February 8 to 18.
Terminal grain elevators of this
section have been congested as a
result of this order, according to
Mr. Smith. But since the order
will automatically expire on Wed
nesday, it is not believed that the
Omaha committee will obtain any
earlier relief.
Mr. Smith states that while the
market was weak for several days
after the order became effective, it
has been growing gradually
stronger. He anticipates receipts
much heavier than normal for a
week or 10 days immediately fol
lowing the expiration of the order.
Much empty railroad equipment has
been returned to country districts
for removal of surplus stocks..'
Urge Fixed Price, j
Washington, Feb. 16. Protests
against the Gronna.bill, which seeks
to terminate at once the existence
of the United States Grain corpor
ation, were heard by the senate
agricultural committee Monday
from 'western farmers' organizations
and associations of grain traders.
The bill would have the effect of
weakening the guaranteed price on
wheat, the witness said. Farmer
representatives urged new legisla
tion to extend the $2.26 guaranteed
price for a year or more beyond
June 1.
Pistrict Court Clerk
Has Narrow Escape;
Struck by Autdhiobile
Robert Smith, clerk of the district
court, had a narrow escape from
serious injury yesterday afternoon
when he was knocked down by a
seven-passenger' automobile at Sev
enteenth and Harney streets.
His presence of mind saved him
from being run over. The car was
driven by a man. A woman seated
beside him screamed when she saw
the car would strike Mr. Smith.
The fender of the car' struck Mr.
Smith and knocked him to the
street and he drew hisvfeet quickly
out of the way, escaping the wheels
by a hair's breadth.
The district court clerk picked
himself up and motioned the driver
of the car tp go on without even in
quiring his name.
"I think I must be in sound
health," he said. "I wasn't in the
least excited fy the incident, not any
more than if 1 ha J stubbed my toe."
Purse Stolen From Office.
A pocketbook, containing $10
a silver vanity case and a bank
book belonging to Mrs. Jessie Ros

Four Votes In City Council
Now Claimed for and
Against Proposition.
City Commissioner Towl yester
uay announced that he is with Com
missioners Zimman and Ure on the
matter of rejecting the gas plant ap
praisal of $4,500,000. '
Commissioner Ringer is not ready
to commit himself definitely, beyond
the- statement that he believes the
appraisal is too high.
Commissioners Zimman and Ure
express confidence that there will
be four votes to reject the appraisal.
Mayor Smith is just as confident
that .there will be four votes to ap
prove. "I have no doubt but that when
the times comes there will be four
votes to buy the plant at the ap
praised valuation," the mayor said.
If any commissioner is able to
obtain a lower price, there will be
no objection."
Members of the Metropolitan Wa
ter board are beginning to take a
keen interest in the gas plant situa
tion, in view of the fact that the
board will manage the plant if the
city should purchase.
"To buy the plant at the ap
praised valuation of $4,500,000 and
then turn it over to us to manage,"
said Fred D. Wead of the Water
board," would make it difficult for
us to make a 'howling success' of
it, as we did with the water plant."
"The Water board should have a
voice in this matter," asserted City
Commissioner Ure, "as it will be

How Richard Second Greeted
Dicky's idle words worried me un
conscionably during the remainder
of our journey home. I realized, of
course, when I thought the matter
over, that it was the height'of folly
for me to expect a baby little more
than a year old to remember any
one, even his mother, during an ab
sence of almost a month. But the
thing had never occurred to me be
fore, and I felt all the foolish but
no less real anguish which is the
portion of young mothers concern
ing many experiences with that most
wonderful of all creatures, "the first
I was on fire to get home and see
for myself whether or not Dicky's
supposition was a true one. Un
consciously I speeded up the car un
til I heard from Lillian a low re
monstrance. "Do you mind driving a little more
slowly, Madge?", she asked gently,
but the quiet sentence meant more
to me than the most hysterical pro
test from another woman.
Lillian is the bravest woman I
know. She also makes it a point
never to interfere with another's
conduct. This is almost a fetish with
her. I knew that if she had not
had Marion in the car with her she
would have said nothing, having no
fear for herself, and believing that
any protest should come from my
father or husband. But that she be
lieved my driving too reckless for
the safety of her idolized child I
knew with her first word, and slowed
down at once to Dicky's intense dis
gust. Two Views.
"What's eating you, Lil?" he de
manded crossly. "This is. the first
time Madge has shown any speed,
we've been crawling along like
snails, and here, just as she begins
to jazz up a little you bring out
the crepe and hang itup. Madge,
are you going to crawl like this?
I'm ashamed of you. Remember the
first qualification of a motor driver
"To slay his thousands and his
tens of thousands," Lillian inter
posed lightly. "Don't worry, Dicky
bird. You'll no doubt leave a traij
of dead and maimed on every road
you strike, but don't encourage
Madge to get reckless. You ought
to know that if she ever had a seri-;
ous accident in which anyone beside
herself was hurt she would never
get over it." ,
She had begun her little speech
laughingly, but her voice was deadly
earnest when she finished. I sur
mised that she had seized the sud
den opportunity to give me over
Dicky's shoulder the sound advice
which she might otherwiise never
have found a good chance to offer
"That is a sound premise," my
father put in quietly, and I realized
that he, too, had disapproved of mj
fast driving. I knew betterfi how
ever, than openly to flout Dicky's
views' for theirs, so contented my
self with a compromise.
The Home-Coming.
"I'll be good all the rest of the
way home, Lillian," I said, "and then
Dicky, sometime I'll take you out for
a spin all by ourselves and we'll
probably land in the police court."
"Or the morgue," Lillian said sen
tentiously, but I caught a note of
relief in her tones, and realized that
she knew me well enough to be as
sured that I would do no more
As we finally turned into the drive
way of our home I heard an ecstatic
whoop, quickly smothered, from the
house, knew that Katie had seen us,
and had been promptly squelched by
my mother-in-law. The next minute
the veranda next the driveway seem
ed filled with people, but as I stopped
the car 1 saw that only Mother ura
ham with Junior, the Braithwaites
and Mrs. Durkee were gathered
there. Jim was already down the
steps, while Katie stood in the door
leading to the dining room, her
volatile face clouded by the rebuke
she evidently had received, even
though her eyes were smiling a wel
come at me.
"What do you think of our lady
taxi driver?" Dicky demanded, as
Dr. Braithwaite hurried down the
steps to help us out. "Drove every
step of the way in herself with only
one Stop for lunch. I tell you you've
got to slip it to her. She's going
to take a route in New York, I
I was too preoccupied with the
thought of my baby to recognize the
note of sincerity underlying his fool
ery, which later I appreciated. Dieky,
despite bis first rancor, was actually
required to manage the plant if the
city should purchase it. The Water
board will be required to make a
showing, so why shouldn't it have
a voice in the proceedings at this

Preventing Change of
Power Co. Rates
The city council committee of thr
whole yesterday recommended foi
passage an ordinance offered by Citj
Commissioner Ure, for the regula
tion of electric light and powei
rates. '
This measure provides that elec
tric light and power ratds below the
6-cettt maximum rate must not be
changed without the approval of
the city council, the maximum
rate is not disturbed. The existing
schedule of rates below the 6-cenl
rate gives the Nebraska Power
company authority to ' change the
"steps" without going to the city
Mr. Ure's recent ordinance to re
duce these rates, and the powei
company's application to increasi
the rates, met with adverse action
in the city council.

proud that I had learned to drive a

But I was halfway up the steps,
calling softly to my baby:
"Come, Junior, to mother! Come

My mother-in-law's voice, caustic,
peremptory, cut like a whiplash
across my eagerness.
"For goodness sake, Margaret,

Tells Rheumatism Sufferers to
TaKe Salts and Get Rid
of Uric Acid.
Rheumatism is no respecter of
age, sex, color or rank. If not the
most dangerous of human afflictions
it is one of the most painful. Those
subject to rheumatism should eat
less meat, dress as warmly as possi
ble, avoid any undue exposure and,
above all, drink lots of pure water.
Rheumatism is caused by uric acid
which is generated in the bowejs
and absorbed into the blood. It is
the function of the kidneys to filter
this acid from the blood and cast
it out in the urine; the pores of the
skin are also a means of freeing the
blood of this impurity. In damp
and chilly, cold weather the skin
pores are closed thus forcing the
kidneys to do double work, they be
come weak and sluggish and fail to
eliminate this uric acid which
keeps accumulating and circulating
through the system, eventually set
tling in the joints and muscles caus
ing stiffness, soreness and pain call
ed rheumatism.
At the first twinge of rheumatism
get from any pharmacy about four
ounces of Jad Salts; put a table
spoonful in a glass of water and
drink before breakfast each morning
for a week. This is said to eliminate
uric acid by stimulating the kidneys
to normal action, thus ridding the
blood of these impurities.
Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless
and is made from the a'cid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with
lithia and is used with excellent re
sults by thousands of folks who .are
subject to rheumatism. Here you
have a pleasant effervescent lithia
watcr drink which overcomes uric
acid and is beneficial to your kidneys
as well. x
