Mayne') Mteetn Again.
C. E. Mayne, of Omsba, who made a
number of flying trips to Rock Island and
Davenport, seems to have laid tbe ground
work for endless litigation. The latest
trouble is in regard to his horses, accord
ing to the Omaha Bee. which says:
Thorn as D. Crand has returned from
Detroit, where, as lecal representative of
Joseph Barker and Charles Corbett. he
tried two cases in which Dan D. Doc
West, the pacer, and Tommy Linn, fast
horses once owned by C. E. Mayne, were
the subject of contention. Corbett
held a mortgage of $20,000. trans
ferred to him by Barker, on Dan D,
and Tommy Linn. He got judgment,
and, by garnishee process, took posses
sion of the animals. Tbey are now
owned in Detroit. John Riley, of Chi
cago, is the owner of Doc West. To
secure himself in the payment of a debt,
C. H. Solomon 6wore out attachment
papers and had them served on Riley and
got the horse into a sheriff's keeping.
Not locg ago he entered Doc in a pacing
race and won $12,000. In tbe meantime
Riley brought suit against Solomon for
false seizure of property and damages.
Crane received a telegram yesterday no
tifying bim that tbe jury bad returned a
veraici tor piaintm, ana assessed bis
damages against Solomon at $13,000.

quiver. Hers is as expreswive a mouth as one
Amelia Rives Chnnler has a mouth very
full and very red ; the under lip protrudes
slightly. She does not smile easily ; when she
does it comes in a slow fashion. She has some
tricks of the lip when speaking that to gen
tlemen are very fetching. She curves the
under lip outward in a way that is very sug
gestive of "Quick or the Dead" kisses. Her
month is sadly at variance with the rest of
her face, which, in repose, is rather classic.

The problem suggested by the fact that in
return for the same class of work women re
ceive less wages than do their . male com
petitors is apparently as far from solution as
ever. As an unskilled laborer a man will re

in all clerical or mechanical branches the
same rule holds good. Theoretically this is
all wrong. Very few employers will hesitate
to say so. In practice, however, it is main

The Makers of a Well Known Churn write.-
"We have been often asked by dairymen: 'What is the very
best soap to use to properly cleanse dairy utensils ? We have
invariably replied, the 'Ivory,' but as for giving specific directions
for washing dairy utensils, it is really-summed up in making them
thoroughly clean. Boiling water must be used, and that, in con
nection with Ivory Soap, will thoroughly cleanse and deodorize
the wood, leaving it clean and sweet for-further use. Any dairy
utensils half cleaned will spoil the delicate aroma of ' gilt edge
butter,' which may be perfect in other respects."
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be ' just as good as the 'Ivory'j'
they ARE NOT, but like all coujiterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities'
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
