LONG (ROSS-COUNTRY FLIGHT Louis Paulhan Make Trip to Bald win Ranch and Return. DISTANCE FORTY-FIVE MILES Onml llrraks Tfcroash flarrlers oa I! la Upturn to Gramdataad All I'revluae Records Broken. I .OS ANGKIsKS. ,Jan. 19. Louis Paulhan, In hi Fnrrann biplane, made Tuesday what aviation experts consider the most re mat liable cross-country flight In hlHtory. On the wings of a wind that other aviator! h.sitntcd long to fHce, the little Frenchman rode . from Avlutlon field to "Iucky" iialdain's ranch, . twenty-three miles away, circled the old Fanta Anita raoa track and bucked hla way back to his tent. In all ho covered an estimated distance of forty-eeven and onerhalf . miles In one hour two minutes .and forty-two and four- fifths second. , He went down with the wind In thirty minutes and came back against It in thirty-five minutes. When he climbed out of his car he said that hla motor was as cool as when he started and that he could do the trip over again at one. , In sheer beauty and contempt of danger the flight ilvals that seen on any aviation field of the old world. The only test ap proaching; It In this country was that made by one nf . the Wrights last fall, on a flight . with an army, officer from Wash ington to Alexandria. Blcrlot, Iatham, Karman and Cody have made flights, nearly as long, porhapn, but they have not come hack. Cody flew forty miles at Aldershut In sixty-three minutes last fall. Forman took a twenty-mile run to spend a. day shooting with a friend, but he landed at one end of his journey. President Cortlandt F. lilshop of the Aero club cf America said tonight that he did not know of any flight equal to Paulhan's It Is probable that the prize of $10,000 will go to him.. There will much official pon dering and cabling however, before a new world's .record Is added to the glory of x ranee. Pauihaii iiuilnlaiiivd an altitude of from 1,000 to 2,000 feet on his way over the yalley. His highest point was 2,130 feet, as Indicated by the Instrument In his car. Under him, speeding over country roads, were automobiles and men on horseback and motorcycles, trying to be near tha ma chine should Paulhan fall or have to de scend. Mrs. Paulhan was In an automobile praying and crying. When Paulhan reached the grandstand on his return ha was mobbed. The crowd broke through tha barriers. Tha aviator wa lifted up and borne over the field. Hla countrymen klsxed him and wept In Joy. This event was the only "one of great Im portance In ' the day's meet, Curtlsa did not go Into the air until after Paulhan had been away for half an hour. Then he gave a pretty exhibition of fancy starting and retired. . Upper Currents steadier. The wind cams urt suddenly, and for a time it looked bjt though the program would be spulled. At S o'clock nothing had hap pened except a few skids over the Held, the crowd began to howl. Paulhan rose to the occasion.. Without any announcement his mcchlno appeared on the far west course, beating against the wind. It came around and over tha heads of the crowd with the wind at a speed of sixty miles an hour. Paulhan eame down aa though- he had decided, against, further flying, but be fore tha crowd had - time to forget their first wonder, he came over their heads again and pointed the flat nose of his big white plana toward, the mountains. It was 8.08 o'clock,.. . . , . "He's off for tha cross-country record A the world,'-" announced tha megaphone man. For ten minutes the machine flew onward and upward, straight toward the snowline of the Sierra Madre range. Old Baldy peak was the compass point.. It lay In shining white relief against the sky. Through the glasses Paulhan could be seen rising .above the base and taking a trail, so It seemed, K "CW wrnwis-wjWfww . I mm. Wholesale Dealer 802 Douglas St., J? ' Corner 8th St. j& 'Phone, Doug.

At 4 o'clock there was a great shout. Someone had seen the airship. Soon It eame Into sight, blown from Its outward course and on a line with Mount Wilson. The machine loomed up mora and more distinctly and even the experts Watching and timing were surprised at the speed with which It returned. Mr. Bishop figured that It would take Paulhan twloa. aa long to ponwi back against the wind aa It had to go with It, but the avla'.or had strucV a milder current In the higher altitude and wss coming home on this. Soon he was over the field and settling gently. The rush began. The Frenchman stepped stiffly out of the saddle and asked for a cigar. "I will go twice bs far some day," he promised. Nebraska for Training Table Action of Board of Control at Lincoln , Will Remit in Retention of This Feature. LINCOLN, Jan. 19 (Special. )-Four out of five Important measures passed by the Missouri Valley conference at Its last meet ing In Des Moines In December met with the disapproval of the Nebraska Board of Control and they will be protested by tha Cornhusker representative to tha next meeting of the "Big Seven." The four rules on which the Nebraska board op poses the action of the conference are: The abolition of the foot ball training table; placing foot ball scouting under dis approbation, but not prohibiting It; dis carding the hammer throw In field events, and adopting the second semester eligibil ity rule. At Its meeting on Monday night the Cornhusker board Instructed Its rep resentative to protest each of these four rules. By declaring- for the foot ball table, the Nebraska board will prevent the abolition of that institution from Missouri Valley foot ball. At the recent meeting Missouri and Nebraska voted against a motion to do away with the table, and hd the Kan sas representative been present he would have voted with these two schools, giving enough votes to defeat Hhe .measure. As It was, the motion carried, making it nec essary for one schoojt to protest tha ac tion of the conference within . sixty days so as to bring the matter up for another vote. When the question comes before the next meeting Nebraska,. Kansas and Mis souri will vote to retain the table, and their votes will be enough to bring about that result.

Thousands of tiny blood vessels are interlaced throughout this mucous surface, and it Is through these that the inner membrane receives Its nourishment and ia kept in healthful condition. When, however, the blood becomes infocted with catarrhal impurities the tissues become diseased and Catarrh gets a foothold in the system. The early stages of Catarrh are characterized by such symptoms as a tight, stuffy feeling in the head, watery eyes, buzzing noises in the ears, with par tial deafness and often difficult breathing and chronio hoarseness. These are merely symptoms, and while sprays, inhalations and other local treat ment may temporarily relieve them, Catarrh cannot be cured until the blood is purified of the exciting causo. S. S. 8. cures Catarrh by cleansing the blood of all Impure catarrhal matter. It goes down into the circula tion and attacks the disease at its head, and removes every particle of the catarrhal impurity. Then the mucous linings are all supplied with fresh, pure blood, and allowed to heal, instead of being kept ia a constant state of irritation by the catarrhal matter.
