BETTER THAN CAlOffi Thousands Have Discovered Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets are a Harmless Substitute Dr. Edwardc' niiu Tattle,. ,1.. -- auivis Mic SUU- stitute for calomel are a mild but sure laxative, ana tneir eltect on the liver is almost instantaneous. They are the re sult of Dr. Edwards' determination not to treat liver and bowel complaints with calomel. His efforts to banish it brought out these little olive-colored tablets. These pleasant little tablets do the good that calomel does, but h..ve no bad after effects. They don't injure the teeth like strong liquids or calomel. They take hold of the trouble and quickly correct it. Why cure the liver at the expense of the teeth? Calomel sometimes plays havoc witf the gums. So do strong liquids. It is best not to take calomel, but to let Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets take its place. Most headaches, "dullness" and that lazy feeling come from constipation and a disordered liver. Take Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets when you feet "loggy" and "heavy." Note how they "clear" clouded brain ind how they "perk up" the spir its. '10c and 25c a box. All druggists. TELLS WHY FOOD HIGHERJ PRICE New York Health Department Says Intelligent Buying Would Help Some. NO SUDDEN EMERGENCY New York, Feb. 26. Enoromus in crease in the exportation of staple articles of food without a correspond ing increase in production and lack of intelligent economy in buying by housewives, are ascribed by the de partment of health of this city, in a report issued tonight, as the chief rea sons for steadily increasing prices. The department declared "there does not appear to be any sudden or recently developed emergency in the food situation in this city," although there has been serious rioting in vari ous parts of the city. While the report asserts there is "obviously less dependency and real need than has been common for many years past," it also says, "it is ap parent that unless the present high prices of food are reduced or con trolled, or as an alernative the income of families which now maintain them selves on $800 a year or less is in creased by raise of wages or through relief agencies, there will be a constantly-increasing number of people whose health will be jeopardized by their inability to buy sufficiently nour ishing food at the present prices." Boycott on Kosher Places. Cincinnati, O., Feb. 26. A boycott on all Kosher Butcher shops in the city, to take effect next Wednesday, was declared tonight by an executive committee appointed at a mass meet ing of Jewish people. It was reported to the meeting that the Kosher butchers are paying from 10J4 oents to 1354 cents a pound for meat wholesale and seHmg it for 20 cents per pound. To Close Shops. "Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. 25. At a mass meeting, called by the Kosher Butchers' association today, a vote was taken on the question whether the butchers should charge 24 and 26 cents a pound for Kosher beef or close their shops. The unanimous de cision was "close your shops." Ac cordingly it was announced that none of the 400 members would sell meat unless the price is redueed to 22 cents a pound. At the same meeting, it was de cided to declare a "school strike." Most of those present said thev would not permit their children to attend school because they are too weak from lack of proper food to study and attend classes." Springtime Beckons, Car Thieves' Busy, Six Autos Stolen It used- to be that the first warm breath of spring made the fancies of impecunious chaps turn to love, but nowadays it seems that they turn to buzz wagons instead, according to in formation gleaned from police reports wherein are recorded complaints of ex-auto owners whose pets have been abducted. Yesterday, being such a nice day. six machines were stolen by joy-riders and other culprits with even more deadly designs. Of the six, two were recovered by the police within a few hours, but the others are still missing. Policeman Charles Whealan caught Anton Pavlovic, aged 16, of 1409 Archer, and Robert Green, aged 16. of 1603 N street, in the act of winding up a car they did not own at Sixteenth and Bacney, so he arrested them. Car owners whose machines were taken yesterday are: John Tachadonltsch. Gretna: Frank O. McCaffAsy, S0SS Mason: . R. Johnson, Twenty-wcond and Jones, and B. L. Bares, Red Oalc, la. The other two can were round. The car of John Tschandonitisch was found at Twentieth and Douglas streets early Monday morning, little the worse for its experience. The car belonging to the Iron Motor com pany, Councu Bluffs, wfcich was taken Sunday evening from Nineteenth and Cass streets, was recovered at Twenty-third and Nicholas. Blames Mules for Fatal Salt Water Bath of Gold Fish There is one family of gold fish in Omaha that is extinct today. And it all happened because a bunch of mules in Missouri chose to entice Jack Massey, donkey dealer, from his usual haunts. Here is the story: Massey spent the greater pa ' of the last month in various parts of Mis souri buying up such lots of mules as he came across. After days of tedious traveling he finally reached the limits of his buying power and brought his lot of "hind kicks" to the South Side. On the morning of his arrival, last Friday, he bethought himself of tele phoning to his wife like the dutiful husband he is. It so happened that his wife was giving the family gold fish their usual salt water bath. At this moment the telephone rang and hubby was on the wire. "Well, I'm back home," he called across the miles between Twenty fourth and M streets and 1623 Spencer street. "How's wific." "Very well," Mrs. Massey, answered and they became engaged in a long conversation. Meanwhile the salt became active in a particular fish jar on the sitting room table. Mrs. Massey neglected to think of the fish for quite a while, but when she did she discovered that all of her beauties had sought pools unknown. Thty were dead. "Them blamed mules did it" Massey told a friend afterward. Beatrice Citizen Finds Thrills Aplenty in This Thriving City A year ago Frank Simon of Beatrice came to Omaha at the ead of harvest time with $200 and a desire which led him to the flowing bowl, and he landed in tht arms of the law. When he sobered up, his money was returned to him and Frank was nearly paralyzed with astonishment "The police are nice gentlemen," he said. Last night he came to Omaha. When night came, he sought the po lice station alley. In his sleep he howled horribly. A trusty in the jail soused him with a pail of water, throwing it through a window. Frank came in and gave the police a piece of his mind, m which he amended his statement of a year ago, Hut he didn't get away with it. , He was locked up to cool off, or rather, warm up, sinci he was neanly frozen from the effect of the cojd water. The trusty who threw the water is no longer a trusty. Omaha Boys Make Good in Studies at Outside Schools In addition to standing at the top of his class.

Pending the return of Secretary Lansing from his three-day stay at White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., the generally accept ed belief here is that no new move will be made by the government in the German crisis. In diplomatic quar ters the opinion is almost universal that the secretary is devoting what has been officially described as a short vacation to important work. Some think he is framing a document for the use of President Wilson in connection with his address to con gress. Others :hink he is preparing for what is regarded as the inevitable break with Austria-Hungary. Sees No Callers. The president saw no callers today and left the White House only for an automobile ride with Mrs. Wilson. Official information about jhe re lease ot the American prisoners of the Yarrowdale still is lacking. It has been nearly two mouths since the seventy-two seamen were taken into Germany. Their release was an nounced in press dispatches several days ago, hnt several inquiries to the Spanish ambassador at llcrlin have failed to bring official announcement ot it. A dispatch from London today to the State department said two Amer ican sailors, Edward Ellis and John Handley, were in the crew of the Hrilish sailing ship Centurion, sunk by a submarine February 1 after be ing warned. The crew look to t he boats and was rescued after nineteen hours at sea. As the ship was warned and no lives were lost, no great im portance is attached to the- incident. Holland Won't Break. Despite the belief here that the severance of diplomatic relations be tween Germany and Holland has been brought a step nearer by recent wholesale destruction of Dutch ship ping, it is considered virtually cer tain that for the present, at least, the Netherlands government will go no further than to make a vigorous pro test, possibly warning the Berlin gov ernment and Informing it that it will be held responsible for the monetary loss involved. Holland is represent ed aj feeing that the recent losses, while being tremendous, cannot com pare with the damage that would re sult should relations be severed or hostilities commenced. South Dakota Adjutant General Here for Men F. A. Morris, adjutant general of South Dakota, and members of his stalf are now at Fort Crook to take over the Fourth South Dakota in fantry when it is mustered out of the federal service March 3. Among some of the recent South Dakota arrivals at Fort Crook are the wives and families of Colonel Boyd Wales of Howard and Major F. C. Bentley of Brookings. The visitors will remain at the fort until the regi ment leaves for its home state. Women Would Organize For Service in War Washington, Feb. 26. A nation wide movement to organic women for war service was planned here to day at a mass meeting called by the National American Women Suffrage association addressed by Secretary Baker and attended by Secretaries Daniels and McAdoo.
