Everything Is in readiness for the crack ing of the pistol which will start the two first teams on their way. The Auditorium will all be fixed up today with the big pulling platform installed in the center of the building so as to be in full view of everybody, no matter where they may be, and the decorations and the flags of the various nations entered will be put up. Four pulls will be held tonight, as every cither night of the event. Thus all eight teams take part every evening and each team pulls each other team one time. By this series of elimination there can be no dispute as to place in the final stand ing. 1j Bran to Heferee. Bert Le Bron, who is of French de scent and therefore a neutral as no team representing France is entered, has agreed to referee the pulls. Jack Prince, the veteran promoter who is staging the event, declares it will be his biggest success in the way of tug-of-wars. Prince has staged innumerable tugs all over the country. The first one he ever put on was at the coliseum twenty-five years ago and that was consider able of a success. But the pull this year will be even bigger says Jack. , "I: expect over 15,000 persons to attend during the week," said Prince. "Tonight you will see at least 3,000 persons on hand, and perhaps 6,000." Examine all Poller. - All eight teams are in the best of con dition. They will, however, all be ex amined by physicians before they are al lowed to take part in a pull. The exam inations will occur every night eo that by no chance" one of the pullers may suffer from physical exhaustion. Six men will pull on each team. Nine men are allowed on a team, thus mak ing three substitutes. George Green's band will furnish the music. The bandmaster has his musicians all trained in playing the national airs f the countries taking part so that there will be no alip 'twixt the lip and the in strument.

Washington Wins Foot Ball Contest Played in the Rain PASADENA, Cal., Jan. 1 Playing in a rain that marred the tournament of roses, the Washington State college foot ball eleven defeated Brown university, 14 to 0, here today In a game that fea tured the city's annual NewYear festi val. Vigorous assaults on the Brown line and constant bucking tactics kept the Rhode Island athletes continually on the defensive. They held Washington score less In the first half of the game and even Imperilled the goal of the western era on one or two occasions, but they finally were beaten back on the water soaked field In the third and fourth quar ters, Washington getting a touchdown and goal In each. Boone, who replaced Hanley at right half (or Washington at the beginning of the second period, scored the first touch down and plunging Washington fullback, Diets, put over the second one. Despite the wind prevailing during the game the fullback each time booted the ball be tween the goal posts. NEWSPAPER DECISION GOES TO HARVEY OVER BEECH ER COLUMBC8, O..

They will roll under a handicap system, the matches to be staged on Tuesday nights. Several leagues postponed their sched ules during the week and rolling was somewhat light on the local runways. Just to livjn things up Dad Huntington sprung another new one on Omaha bowl ing circles, by pulling off a but New Year's eve party at his alleys. Special matches were played for prizes by both men and women bowlers. Miss Lois Nes bit won first prise In the women's con tests with Ml. Miss Rauber 2d with 1'.'", Miss Bruck 3d with 191, Miss Goerne 4th with 387, Miss McGreer 6th with 181 and Mrs. Evans 6th with 179. - For the men Jimmy Jarosh won first prize with 244. Other prizes were won by O. Toman, J. Melster. C. Zelst, W. Hageman and J. Kleny. Refreshments were served to all and a five-piece orchestra added tone to. the festivities. A few who" couldn't make their feet behave danced to the muslo on Dad's alleys, making it necessary for them to be recoated and repolished.

THREE HIGH FLOOR GAMES raS WEEK South High-Fremont, Centrd High Council Bluffs and Beatrice Crete Stage Combats. LATTER GAME TO BE THRILLER JNION FOR TWO EMPIRES? Three games of Importance In the state Inter-scholastic field will be played o.. Friday and Saturday of the comln,; week. South High will meet Fremont next Saturday evening at the South High gymnasium. Central High will meet Council Bluffs on the Omaha Young Men's Christian association floor Friday evening. Crete and Beatrice wll clash Friday evening on the Queen City floor. All three games will give a little actual dope on how several of the bigger teams of the state are going to pan out According to the reports from Coach Mulligan's official circle, the Central quintet is not faring as well as might be expected of a big school team. As South High meets the Bluffs quintet on the Omaha gym floor the week after the Central-Council Bluffs game, riope sters will have an opportunity for com parison of the two Omaha fives. Coach Patton's tossers are In the prime of condition as is usually the case and plan to give the Fremont lads the go of their life. Iast year the local five defeated the Fremont team by a large score. The Crete-Beatrice conflict will be some battle. Both teams defeated Wil bur, a strong first-class combination In the same district, by practically similar scores. With the exception of Geneva, these two quintets are generally the best southwestern Nebraska can pi-oduee. The game Friday night will be largely attended and bitterly fought.

Correspondence of the Associated Press.) ZrillCH. Switzerland. Dec. 'XI 1m xirtant conferences between German and Austro-Hungarian politicians and lead- ns representatives of finance and coin norve are now going on In Vienna and rlorlln tor the purpose of finding a basis f establishing closer economic relations hetween the allied empires. Although H-veral meetings have already taken place, no definite results have yet been ibtalned. The Industrial and commercial Interests of the two countries are so di vergent that It is difficult to see how an understanding can be reached which will prove satisfactory to both sides. And so far every conference seems only to have discovered new troubles in the way of reaching an agreement. Austro-Hungarians fear that Just as at present they are under the domination of Germany In military affairs, so later their financial and economic Independ ence will also be lost before tho persist ent and powerful monarch of Germany. The whole question Is one of the most vital Importance for the future welfare of the dual monarchy, and Incites far more interest In the business community than the progress of the war. Since the Franco-Prussian war Ger many has become an Industrial state, while Austria-Hungary has remained es sentially agricultural. With the excep tion of Bohemia, Moravia and Lower Austria, which includes Vienna, all the other provinces of Austria are purely agricultural, and Hungary Is overwhelm ingly so. In both parliaments, at Vienna and Budapest, the agrarians always pos sess a large majority. Closed Vnlon a Necessity. Nevertheless, both politically and mili tarily, a closer union between Germany and Austria Is generally regarded as an absolute necessity, and will doubtless continue to be so long after the war la ended. But the problem as to how this Is to be brought about Is exceedingly complex. By high protective duties Austria has long maintained an economic existence Independent of Germany, and. Indeed, even opposed to German interests. In Austria everything is much dearer than In Germany, from 20 to even 60 per cent. The difference in prices is especially great In heavy wares, such as coal, iron, steel and machinery. It Is only through these protective duties that Austria has managed to develop a growing Industry, and pievent the country from being flooded with cheap German products. For some years Austria has almost mo nopolized tlie trade In the Balkans ami the Levant, but latterly German mer chants have been creeping in there and cupturtng customers. Tnis has been the case moro than ever since the annexation by Austria-Hungary of Bosnia and Her zegovina in 1, when both Turkey and Serbia boycotted' Austrian goods. Thw rapidity with which Germany seized the opportunity to enter these markets caused Intense Irritation In Vienna and Budapest at the time. Nor has this feel ing diminished since. Oerman trade has steadily grown In southeastern l',"urope, while Austria's has steadily decreased. How all these matters will develop after the war nobody can foresee. Undoubtedly Austria-Hungary Is placed under heavy obligations to Germany for its military aid In the wa-. How and In what form will Germany require payment for such service? Probably through preferential customs tariffs, or perhaps by a customs union. In either case, It is declared, Ger many stands to gain all the profit and Austria to suffer all the Injury. For then German wares would swamp Aus trian markets, prices generally would be forced down, and Austrian competition for the ttade In the Balkans and Levant would b- hopeless. Hence It is easy to understand the covert opposition, in nearly all parts of AUHili, to Germany's efforts to bring It ally In closer commercial relationship. It is feared that economic deindence will surely follow military, liver sines the war began things have occurred which indicate Germany's aim at bring ing AuBtrla Hungary under its commer cial subjection. Only a short lime ago the big banks In Berlin sent circulars to the pr.nolpal Austrian investor In tne Mist and second Austrian war loans of fering to advance them 9J per cent of the face value of their holdings provided they would use the money for Investment in thy third loan. The Austrian banks were only advancing 75 ler cent of the former loans. Such Incidents ba.e create I much dlatruet in the AustrUn capital, and thaw the necessity for exercising the utmost caution before entering Into any new kind of economic arrangement with Germany, whirl, may be fraught with the most serious consequences for the future of the d.ial monarchy. Mine I'rlees Doubled. Shoes have doubled In price In Vienna In the lust few months, and th'a largely through the wearing of the short skirt, which .alls for higher footwear. It la not that raw material is scarce at all; there Is plenty of it from ox, calf and goatskins, hut tanning materials are hardly obtainable at any price. Most of these come from abroad, but their Im port has been rendered Impossible by th war for some time past. With the aid of these Austrian tanners could convert a hide Into leather in three weeks; the same process now takes four months. Some of these materials are now costing seven times the ordinary price. And this has led to a shortage In the supply of shoemaker's leather, which has been further Increased by the women's demand for higher sltoes. which tako much more leather. The consequence Is that prices have iLien tremendously. Modern shoes of the cheapest nuiterii'l formerly costing $H now cost from 112 to $18, while for lietter shoes $lti snd even 'M are asked. Men's shoes have) also gone tip In price In the sumo proportion, although In their casta no change In fashion has taken place. Since a large quantity of tanner's ma terials has always Iwen obtained from Turkey, It la possible that now that com munications have been reoH-tml with Constantinople fresh supplies may be ob tained. One of 4he moat difficult of ail social problems, the care of the homeless, has been solved In Vienna by the war. The number of these unfortunate poisons this winter Is far less thnn In many years. Indeed so great. ha.i been the fulling off in this class of mendl.-ants that In many districts of the city the hulldtiiKS erected for their accommodation have ben con verted into military hospitals and homes for refugees from the Italian theater of war. Tho disappearance of these "homeless" persons is chiefly due to so many of the men having been called lo the army, when their wives and families are given relief pay placing theni often In far bet ter circumstances than when their bus- hands were In work. Then, ton, t.i younger classca of the "homeless," vh i were formerly unable to obtain work In tho city In winter, can now get employ ment easily. The factories are constantly Inquiring at the night shelters for work ers. Then, too, "homeless" families lire much fewer because the landlords are compelled to show more coraiderat ion be fore ejecting tenants, and tho famll.es of reservists are often better able to pay the rent than In normal times. CHRISTMASTIDE CN THE FARM t n Notions of Loneliness a Jonrff of Hnral Anmse-ment. We read in tho papers that some big preacher was going to have a sHclal meeting at his church in the city to pray for the peoplo who have to spend a lone some Christmas on tho farm. Father and mother and tho rest of us have laughed at that more than a little. I guess that preacher never spent a Christ mas on the farm. Why. you coudn't find a place where there was more excite ment! One day father would be reading the paper when all of a sudden he would lay It down on his knee and say, "Hmmm!" nobody could aay It Just the way father could, mostly through his nose "hmmm!" here It Is almost Christmas. Where's this year gone to, anyway?" Then mother would put down her mend ing and say that time certainly did fly, and that sho was afraid the raspberry nni was turning. Hut mother knew that Christmas wns almost here, for hadn t she been knitting wristlets for a 11101111.' Kvery time father came Into tho r otu sho had to hide her knitting father must never know that he r.as ROiir lo not a pnlr of wristlets, due year he would l as surprised ns oouh! be when ho found a knit muffler tn his stocking, and llio next your he couldn't unlei,,innd ho,v Santa Clans knew thnt he wante,1 a nr of pulse-warmers with a fancy red ed e.

The horses and rows and chickens and everything could tell when Christmas was coining. Nobody can toll me they can't. They would all snuggle up close and ruh their noses and Old Ned would stop est Ing his oats the night before Chrlntmat and let a fellow rub him a long time, and you know how hungry he usually was nTid how nothing could get him to take his nose out of his feed-box. Then, If you would talk to the animals about Christ mas In a low voice, they would all turn their heads to listen and look at you with big eyes; and even old Caesar, the rooster with the frozen toes, would come hopping up nearer. You can't tell me they don't know about Christmas. Leslie's Weekly.

In the same way, a rusty human system is clogged and slowed down by con stipation, which causes a tremendous loss of mental and physical energy. The remedy in the case of the watch is a fine grade of ma chine oil. And the remedy for constipation, according to the latest conclusions of medical science, is an even finer lubricant Nujol the pure white mineral oil. Nujol lubricates the intestinal tract throughout its entire length, and softens the intestinal contents. In this way it facilitates the processes of normal evacuation, and eventually makes possible the return of regular bowel movements. Nujol is not a laxative-drug nor n bowel stimulant. It is not absorbed by the system, hence it may be taken in any quantity without harm. It does not net ns a purge, but if used regularly will bring permanent relief from constipation in the course of a week or ten days. Write for booklet, "The Rational Treatment of Constipation." If your druggist hasn't it, we will send a pint bottle of Nujol prepaid to any point in the United States n receipt of 75c money order or stamps.
