FREMONT Although there were nly four sets of triplets born in the entire state of Nebraska lat year, two uch events graced Fremont's record for last week. The" first set was bom to Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Porter. All were boys weighing five and one-hair pounds. Despite the fact that the three were physically perfect in every way, the first two died shortly after birth and the third passed away the next day. The mother is recovering rapidly. The secWl ret of VP'ets tne week were born Saturday morning to Mr. and Mrs. Frank Crash. As in the first case, all were boys and of the name weight. Two of these died four hours after birth. The third infant survives and will live, according to the physicians. Carsh is a Northwest ern railroad conductor. Vast Mr. Burleson. FREMONT A delay in the mails Tnay cost County Judge Waldo Winter tteen and Clerk of the District Court P. T. Mitterling the sum of $3,400. I.ast August they mailed a check for that amount to the heir of an estate in Los Ansreles. The envelope was mark ed for a five-day return. For some reason the letter and check for $3,400 laid in the Los Anireles post office for sixty-two days. The check finally was returned to the senders in Fremont reaching here on October 28. They Immediately mailed another check for the same amount on that day. Before the check had time to arrive at its ties. tination this time, the First National Bank, upon which the money order was drawn, cioscu its coors. Women Swat Carnivals.

In his opinion, wine capable of producing intoxication, or which con tains more than one-half of one per cent of alcohol with prescription, can not oo administered, the law J.j in terpreted that the prescribed com pound mu'-t be a medicine of a nature such as to physically prevent a hu man being Irom using it as an intoxi cant. A provision of the prohibitory laws itates that a regularly licensed rn' .ic.m or veterinary purgion may pre scribe intoxicants to animals and peo ple, provided the intoxicating liquor is iMixet. with other ingredient, and fur ther providing that the irgredients are of such a character as to render the compound unfit for use n3 a beverage. This clause, the attorney general be lieves, makes medic. nal prescriptions devoid of intoxication. De-pite new treasury regulations al lowing physicians to issue an unlimit ed number of prescriptions for beer they will be held to the old maximum of 100 prescriptTon every three months, whether the doctors prescribe whisky, wine or beer, Commissioner Hayes announced. He added that he saw no reason for changing the old rule. A decrease of about $12,000,000 in taxes collected on non-beverage dis tilled spirits during July, August and September as compared with the cor responding months of last year was announced by Mr. Hayes. No Change In Schedule for Valley Trains The schedule for Burlineton route valley trains will not be changed at the present time. The proposal to change the time of 30JJ-310, from Bridgeport to Morrill, so that it would leave Morrill early in the morning for Bridgeport, instead or shortly afternoon as at present, has been vetoed by L. W. Wakeley, general passenger agent of the railroad, be cause of opposition that developed in towns of the valley. ScottsblulF and Minatare favored the change, which would have improved some connections at Alliance and Bridgeport. Other valley towns op posed it, and because ot that opposi tion, toirether with the cost of the change, Mr. Wakeley decided against it. - " New potato sacks, in any quantity.

No Chance to Get , Medicine With Any Kick in Nebraska ' Nebraska's prohibitory law forbids physicians the right of prescribing al-4 coholic spirits for medicinal purpose, whatever interpretation the federal government may place upon the right of administering the beverages for such purposes, according to an opinion of the attorney general. State laws do not admit federal statutes to gov-, em in prescriptions containing intox icating beverages, the attorney gen eral says, and no physician in the state has yet received such a permit. i ivti...i.. i ; State prohibitory law, which prohibits' the prescribing of intoxicants for use as a beverage," the attorney general States.

WORTH $1.00 Sunday, Nov. 13 V '4 ' May Allison, in 'EXTRAVAGANCE 4 ACTS 4 VAUDEVILLE Monday, Nov. 14 "EARTH BOUND" By Request, Special Show, ing of Rotarians Hear Old Time Democratic , Political Thunder The members of the Alliance Rotary club, which assays about )!) per cent pure nnd impure republican, were priv ileged to hear nm impassioned and in-' tensely partisan democratic speech at; the Wednesday evening dinner at the I'iilm JUtom of the Amance hotel. The i orator was IJotr.rian Hairy E. Gantz, ; and it was purely the fortunes of war' that he was permitted to make that kind of a speech in company which was so badly in need of it. There were five speakers at the dinner, all drawn by lot and sentenced to speak on a' topic that was handed them by the committee. Mr. Gantz made the most of his op portunity. He gave a long list of dem-1 ocratic achievements during the eight years the party was in power, played up the successful outcome of the war for all it was worth, and then spoke harshly of the failure of the present republican administration. Mr. Gantz' took a tremendous risk in telling the plain, unvarnished truth to the repub lican members of the club, and got away with it. He rose to heights of oratory when he denounced the repub licans for the 121 investigations that had been made in a futile effort to show up the democratic administration in its conduct of the war. Mr. uantr I subject was "My Political Tarty and Why I Belong to It." i Dr. H. A. Copsey drew "What the Average Woman Considers Her Pights," and he hadn't discussed the subject for over two minutes before the club realized that he was speaking from experience. j Charles Fuller discussed "The Ad vantages of Being Forty-five Years of Age." He gave some interesting references to an article by Wallace Irwin on the same subject, and then added some observations of his own that were equally pertinent. A. V. Gavin spoke on "What thev City Manager Plan of Government Has Done for Alliance." It is too early, ne explained, to say just what the plan will accomplish, inasmuch as it has been in effect in the city for little more than half a year, but in that time City Manager Kemmish has more than saved his salary. There have been ravings in practically every depart ment cf the city's activities, the pay roll in every department having been cut down. A water ma;n extension, for which bonds of $10,000 had been votd, was put in for a little over ?G, 000 from other city funds when it was discovered that there was a technical ity that prevented the, issuance of bonds. The city's biggest nuisance, the septic tank, is being made efficient, nnd this nt very small expense and without hiring expensive outside labor. The biggest problem for the future i.i the storm sewer, as some plan must be devised to care for the flood waters, The present plan simply dumps this water into the lowlands east of the city. Mr. Gavin said that the council is well satisfied with the working out of the plan in Alliance, and with the ability of the city manager. W. R. Metz, past president of the club, was assigned by lot the subject, "What Are the Rights of the Average Man." He quoted Blackstone at some length and discussed the purely legal aspects of the situation, and then, in a lighter vein, offered some good ad vice drawn from his personal exper ience. The program was something of a change from the regular run, and was so successful that the' speakers for next week were alro drawn by lot. M. S. Margraves, W. R. Pate, H. P. Cour sey and Harry F. Thiele were select ed, and their subjects will be based on the November issue of the Rotsrian. The victims w:llnot know the theme of their discourses, however, until 4 o'clock p. m. of the fatal day.
