This is to day's Special bulletin issued by the weather bureau: "The Ohio river Is falling from Pitts burgh to about Huntington, W. Va. It Is still rising from Cincinnati to Cairo. The gauge readings at the principal weather' bureau stations at 7 a. m.

' Floods in the Ohio liver from its mouth to Murletta, O.. duo to the gteat volume of water poured into It during the last week by Its tributaries, have caused thousands of people to leave the lowlands along the river and seek re fuge on higher grounds. Early today the water is still rising and at every city along the river heavy damage to property is reported. Rail road traffic Is standing still. In Illinois Governor Dunne has ordered 3,000 stato troops to proceed by special trains to Cairo and Shawneetown for the purpose of patrolling the levees. Hundreds of laborers also have been ordered to pile sacks of sand on the levees in the hopo of strengthening them and preventing a bleak, Reports fariy tuday from Henderson, Owensboro, Lcwlsvllle, Newport and Cov ington, Ky.; Evansvtllc, Ind.; Cincinnati, Portsmouth, Marietta, O.; Huntington ind Parkersburg, W.

"Nine-tenths of humanity suffer with catarrh but do not know what catarrh 5s," said an expert doctor, a specialist In Hood analysis. It is treated locally -because nature tries to drive It out of tha system. But nature must have help. Nasal catarrh is merely an outlet, and St la folly to expect a euro by Inhalants or local applications. If a stream Is pol luted at its source It is ridiculous to -waste time In purification at Its mouth. By a 'long series of elaborate experi ments at the Swift Laboratory it Is defi nitely known that catarrh can be cured "by the simple process of Inoculating the fclood with antidotal remedies that stop Inflammatory conditions throughout the mucous linings of all the organs of the body. This is done with the famous Swift's Sure Specific, or as it Is widely known, B. 8. S. It Is taken Into the blood Just as naturally as the most nourishing food. It spreads Its Influence over every organ in th body, comes through all the veins and arteries, en ables all mucous surfaces to exchange In flammatory acids and other Irritating substances for arterial elements that ef fectually cleanse the system and thus put an end to all catarrhal pollution.

LINCOLN, March 31,-(Speelal Tele gram.) The senate got busy this after noon and disposed of thtrty-dne bills, twenty-six of which were passed, three indefinitely postponed in reports of com mlttees and one killed on passage. In addition to these it refused to con cur In the house amendments to six sen ate bills amended by the house and com' mlttees will be appointed to confer with like committees from the house. Among the bills passed was House Roll No, K7. appropriating $100,000 for the peo ple who suffered from the tornado in Omaha and other places, and prescribing methods for Its distribution.

IT ORIGINATES NEAR LINCOLN Two Olhrr Storms Form Korther Knit nnil Mare I'nrnllel to the Coarse of Mntn UUtarliunce. Which Strnck Omaha. LINCOLN, Neb,, March 3i.-Geogollsts of tho state university are making an exhaustive survoy of the swath of tho tornado which swept through eastorn Ne braska lust Sunday. The storm from Its origin is being traced to Its end and photographs and records of all kinds are being amassed In profusion In the offices of the geology building at the university. Three men have been working for n good share of the last week on the sur vey, the number Including Prof. Barbour, head of the department; Prof. Schramm and David While, an assistant. Both of the latter were out all day Saturday, Mr. Schramm working in and about Omaha and Mr. White near Berlin. Prof. Har mour was nt work In his offlco compiling as much as possible the facts so far gathered concerning the tornado, Orlsrlnntrs Nrnr Lincoln. From the work so far done by the geologists, it Is evident that the storm first made Its appearance not far from Lincoln. Tho origin of the tornado Is thought to have been directly north or Bethany and probably the first work or destruction done was to tho farm of Fred Humphreys, nine miles north. With tho discrimination whloh marked Its entire course, the storm at tho farm swung over the furm houso and picked up a chicken house, but 100 yards tn its rear. No remains of the chicken houso have been, discovered, although a search has been made of tho nearby country, .and it Is now thought the small build ing was picked up by the force of the wind, ground into tinder and distributed for miles over the countryside. A peculiar story was picked up by the geologists In their search for the origin of tho storm near Bethany. It was to the effect that a horse was. aware that a storm was approaching and refused absolutely to obey the commands of its rider to go further along tho road. Some time afterward the storm cloud made Its appearance. The tornado is believed to have crossed tho roadway not far from where the horso balked and refused to go further. Three Distinct Storms, From the work so far done, It Is evi dent that three distinct tornadoes did all the damage In the state, the three progressing eastward along parcllel linos. The main storm was the one which struck Omaha and which originated near Bethany. The origin of the other two have not been absolutely located as yet, but one passed through Tutan and the other through Berlin. The tornado covered as much If not mum teriltory than any other on record. The usual distance which ono of the terrific storms covers before Its energy Is spent Is approximately fifty miles. This one originated near Bethany and traveled on nearly a straight line to Omaha. That distance Is between fifty and sixty miles. It crossed the rtver Into FOR ECZEMAS 'AND BASHES Use CUTIClfflSQUP ANDOINTMENT -The itching, burning, suffering and loss of sleep caused by eczemas, rashes and irritations of the skin i- j J and scalp are at once relieved and permanent skin health restored in -est cases by warm bths with Cutlcura Soap followed by gentle applications of Cuticura Ointment.

Cramor will not bo Jallid i-y tho present demouratlo house of representa tives for aSHauttlng Representative Sti guruiun several days ago. Tha noUrc this afternoon voted to discuss the matter no moio this scsston. The assault may now bo made a campaign Issue and oo the first order of business when the noxt legislature convenes. Tho house took this action after a dis cussion ot the resolution Introduced by tho special committee Inst Friday to put Cramer In the Lancaster county jail for six hours without a hearing. At the time of Its Introduction Uollcn objected anil it went over until today under the rules. Crumer cumo in from Omaha this morn ing with his attorneys, Judgo Good ami JU A. Hall, who were prepared, i caso of his Imprisonment, to nttcnit to secure his release by habeas corpus proceedings. Nichols, chairman of tho lnvtIsaUon committee, called up the resolution 1m mediately after the noon recess.

Mullen inrlstod th matter was In tho hands of the nous and It was Jmmutcrlal what cither Sugar man or Cramer thought about It. Bollen continued, though Interrupted Lmany times, that tho report mado by tlio committee was absolutely false in thut It said tha assault was fn tho presence of the house and was caused by a u mark made by Sugarman In debate on the floor of tho houso, He would not vote, he said, to place falsehood in the record. Tho assault, he said, as everyone knew, was committed In tho lobby of the houso during the noon recess, wtth very few members In the building.
