Diet, Exercise or Death i An eminent medical authority writes that most of our city folks die of a thick ening of the arteries or of kidney dis ease. The kidneys become clogged and do not filter the poisons from the blood, and one trouble follows' another, high blood pressure damages the heart, arteries and kidneys. Usually its danger signals are backache, pain here or there, swollen feet or ankles, rheumatic twinges or spots appearing before the eyes. "The very best remedy is this: Eat meat but once a day, or not at all. Plenty of outdoor exercise, and drink pure water, frequently. Before meals take a little Anuric, the great uric asid neutralize- that is- easily obtained at the ' i?1f store.

PLAN Upper House Members Prefered the Old Way of Making . " Appropriations - : i ANOTHER UTILITY BILL DEAD Cities Denied Power to Collect Share ' of Gross Receipts House Passed Flood Measure..' . Topeka. The senate has finally killed the budget system for .Kansas. The original senate constitutional amendment, failed earlier in the week and the house resolution adopted some days ago failed recently. The resolution directed the governor to make up a budget just - before the legislature convened and this budget was to be presented to the legislature as soon as the session opened. The proposition was intended to fix re sponsibility for the appropriations. The senate killed a bill that had same elements of good In it, .but in which there was a doubtful provision. The bill provided for changing- the existing franchises so that the cities could collect a share of the gross re ceipts of public -utilities. The propo sition had the united opposition of the utilities lobbies in the legislature until they made a discovery which provided that the utilities and cities might agree thao free service might be given the city in exchange for the gross receipts share. Then the seri jus opposition stopped, as this opened the way for continuing to let the cities hold most of the sack as under the present arrangements. The house passed the flood preven tion commission bill. It creates a commission of engineers to invest! gate the flood and drainage conditions along the watersheds of the state and also investigate the possibilities of irrigation. The commission is to co operate with the federal authorities in working out flood prevention plans and- ruggesting remedies for prevent ing the overflows along the larger .Streams of the state. The law does not affect the standing of any drain ing district now organized or any spe cial drainage district to. be organized except that the commission may be called upon for advice or co-operation In working out the problem at hand. tJc 4 fr Divorce Proctors to Stay. The present legislature is not going to abolish the divorce proctors in Kan sas. The house passed a bill to abolish divorce proctors, but the senate passed a measure which provides that the judges of the ... district courts are to name the divorce proctors, instead of the county attorney acting as the proctor by virtue of his office. The senate bill reduces the fee from $10 to $5 for each case. I 4 Home Rule for Cities Killed. The Kansas house has finally killed the home rule amendment for the cities of the state. Nearly every com mittee to which the proposition was submitted killed the resolution, but it finally got out on the calendar. The -first move of the opponents of home rule was to strike from - the bill the municipal ownership provisions. When this was done, thus destroying one of the most important provisions, the resolving clause, was stricken out and the bill was dead. Let Near Beer Be Drunk'. The-lower house of the state legis lature has killed the bill which was designed to prohibit the sale of so called near beer beverages in the ate. Want Fewer Dividends.. . The senate has passed a bill making It a crime for the officers of any cor poration to declare a dividend when the corporation is insolvent, or de clare a dividend which would render it insolvent. The directors are also held jointly liable for all the debt of a corporation where dividends have been-declared unlawfully. New Dry Weather Record. -For more than thirty-six days To peka has had no measurable precipita tion, thus establishing a dry weather record, according to the local weather bureau. Not since the - government station . was established here, thirty years ago, has such a period passed without precipitation, not even in sum mer. Records show that from Novem ber 18 to December 22, 1890, the long est previous period without moisture Keep a State Accountant. The efforts of the Kansas state audi tor to fc-t three more jobs in his of fice and practically abolish the state accountant's office has failed in the house of representatives.

The members of the Kansas house voted the other day to abolish inde pendent voting and they also decided that what is now known as the lit eracy test in the Ballot law should be abolished. TO SPEND OVER 10 MILLIONS Legislative Appropriations Increased Because of High Cost of Living and War Measures. Topeka. The total appropriations of the legislature for the next two years, as shown by bills either passed or pending, will aggregate $10,586,739, as against $9,459,781 two years ago. The . increase, therefore, is $1,126,958. High cost of living and war meas ures are responsible for most of the increase. The legislature. In addi tion to regular appropriations, . set aside nearly $300,000 for the Kansas National guard. Of. this amount $178,- 000 is to pay 50 cents per day to each guardsman who served on the border. Under the law the guardsmen " are en titled to $1 a day whether in state or federal service. The federal govern ment only paid -them 50 cents a day. So the state had to make up the dif ference. This money goes to the en listed, men, not to the officers. The legislature also had to set aside $120. 000 for the guard in accordance with the new army law, passed by Con gress. Deficiencies to cover increased cost of supplies and repairs aggre gated . more than $500,000. Liberal appropriations for the "maintenance of the educational, charitable and penal institutions made up the balance of the increase. The salary schedule of state employes, with but a few minor exceptions, remains the same as two years ago. Important bills passed: Dry bone law. State manager bill. City manager bill. State highway commission act. Marriage registration law,, i Optional mothers' pension law. Detention home for women. Peddlers' license bill. Abolition Weir school of mines.

TO START RISK FIRM PROBE Senate to Create a Commission to Thoroughly Investigate Insurance Business of State. Topeka. Kansas is to have an in surance investigation such as . the Armstrong investigation in New York a few years ago. The genate has agreed to a resolution by Kimball of Labette to create a commission and give it powers to summons witnesses, and to make a thorough investigation cf every line of insurance in the state. life, fire and indemnity. The resolu tion at first covered only fire insur ance. Kansas has for years been trying to regulate -its fire insurance compa nies, bnt without success. Kimball said his resolution was for the pur pose of uncovering the bug under the chip in respect to that branch of the business. The resolution also looked to the possibility or the state enter ing the fire insurance business as a remedy for the evil. When the senate-took up the reso lution it was nearly midnight. At first there was an effort to kill it, but almost every senator had a story to ,tell about the injustice of insurance of one kind or another. Kimball, Coleman,. Delaney, Price, Carroll, Doerr, Getty and Snyder all went to bat against the insurance companies. It was agreed to postpone action on the "resolution until the measure could be strengthened to include all insurance, and . then make the inves tigation complete and sweeping, and for recommendations to the next leg islature for laws to regulate the busi ness in Kansas. State to Control Roads. The Kansas . legislature has created a state highway commission with su pervisory control over afl the roads and bridges of the state, except strict ly township highways and bridges. The conference committee of the house and senate reached an agree ment and the report was adopted by both branches. . . For a Medical Inspection. The senate , voted the other day to send a bill for the medical inspection of school children to third, reading and final passage. The bill provides that school boards may employ compe tent physicians and dentists to exam ine the school children, and it. there are any ill these may be sent home. -$57,000 for Highway Commission. - The new highway commission gets $57,000 to run ' it for the next two years. This amount has been appro priated. It was agreed on by " all parties interested, including the good roads lobby. The lobby wanted $100, 000, but 'finally compromised on $57,000. - Quits Board On Control. W. E.
