State Auditor aBrton will the first of the week give out his decision In the mat ter of special contracts In pollcl'S Issued by Insurance Companies doing business in Nebraska, along with several other rulings the department has made. Auditor aBrton will hold against the special contracts. He nas not made purine nis occis:on yi and haa not yet completed It, having stop- pea lo consider some oners ruea uy i" insurance companies that are wr.tlng spec ial contract policies. At the recent hear ing some of the companies opposed tht clal contracts and other companies ad vocated them. The auditor considered the question from all sides and hs will knock out that class of policies. Robert Malone, late candidate for mayor on the democratic ticket, today filed his V petition attacking the lection of Dun Love .mjI i.l.1mln h- nfttfm himself hv ma ior- lty of 733. Malone's petition was filed by T. J. Doyle and It is claimed that enough mistakes were made to offset the Love majority and turn it, into a Malone victory. The chief discrepancy Is found In the re turns aa certified concerning; precinct B of the Fifth ward. The returns from that precinct ars that 3 votes were cast for Love and 173 for Malone and that the total number cast in the precinct was 220. The petition sets out that this would give Love 179 mora votes than the total cast, more than enough to make up for his reported majority. In twenty .other counts of the petition alleged errors In the returns from each of the twenty other precincts of the city are cited. aww vssr ass w j 1 Mayor Love . Is in no hurry to make 'changes In his cabinet, however anxious outsiders may be to get in and insiders to spectlon of railroad tracks and the euj rounding country, a (11 tour Its way back to Ita maker without having accumulated any Nebraska dust save that which it gathered while in the freight house at Lincoln. The commission made satisfac tory terms .with the manufacturers by which the machine Is taken back and the state Is out nothing, the commissioners paying all the coats out of their own pockets. As the car weighed 8.000 pounds, Commissioner Cowglll refused to take the contract to lift It from the tracks at the approach of a train or hand car. Mr. Clark and Dr. Wlnnett admitted it was too heavy for them to lift. Krrm Policemen Caw't Drlak. Notwithstanding Lincoln Is. dry and It Is Impossible' to get a drink in the city, the policemen will not be permitted to be drunk while on duty or of duty. The new mayor. Don Love, ha issued an order that the first time he secures evidence that nj policeman has been drinking while on duty or la drunk while off duty ho will dismiss' the official at once. Dis missal for such a cause, the mayor said, would prevent the official from again serving aa a city policeman. The mayor even said that It had been reported to him that some of the police had been drinking during the last two weeks, half of which time the saloons have been out of business. Compiles Record of Legtalatwre. Hon. T. Cone, chief clerk of Nebraska's first democratic legislature, may be elected United Stntes senator, governor, or railway commissioner, or general manager of the state, but It is a safe prediction that he will not be again elected chief clerk of the house If the present house Is re-elected Mr. T. Cone Is tsktng liberties with the members of the house. In an Index to the house Journal he haa prepared a history of the work, the vote, the motions and the resolutions and Mils of each member. This will make it easy to discover Just how any member voted and Just what he did, Insofar as the records go. These pages have ben sent to the members for verification and In many lnstsnces a beautiful roar has come back from the weeds, to which most of the members took after adjournment In thei meantime Mr. T. Cone continues to use the room set arsrt for the chief clerk as an office for private work. PERU NORMAL'S BIG CLASS Largest Ever Sent Out Will Be Grad uated This Year.

The Influence of food upon the brain and memory Is so little understood that people are inclined to marvel at lU Take a person who hss been living on Improperly selected food and put him upon a scientific diet In which the food Grape-Nuts is largely used and the in crease of mental power that follows Is truly remarkable. A Canadian who was sent to Colorado for his health illustrates this point in a most convincing manner: One year ago I came from Canada a nervous wreck, so my physician said, and reduced in weight to almost a skeleton and my, memory waa so poor that conver sations had to be repeated that had taken place only a few hours before. I was un able to rest day or night for my nervous system was shattered. "The change of climate helped me a little, but it waa soon seen that this was not. all that I needed.' I required the proper aelection of food, although I did not realise it until a friend recommended Grape-Nuts to me and I gave this food a thorpugh trial. Then I knew what the right food could do and I began to change In my feelings and bodily condition. "This kept up until now after months use of Grape-Nuts all my nervous troubla hss entirely disappeared, I have gained in flesh all that I had lost and what Is more wonderful to me then anything else my memory Is as good aa it ever was. "Grape-Nuts has remade me all over. mind and body, when I never expected to well and happy again." "There's . a tceaaon." Look for the famous little book, "The Road to Wellvtlle." la pkgs.
