THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: APRIL 29, 1917.
14- RAILROADS WILL ; ENFORCEDRY LAW Have Issued Orders to Em ,. ployei Liquor Must Kot Be Handled After May 1. HAVE PROBLEM ON BANDS In i fight lo 4 finish the railroads have locked horns with Old John Barleycorn, and ao far aa Nebraska ia eomerned, they propose to put him oat of business at the end of the present month. 1 .',' All of the lines operating into and through Nebraska have issued cir cular to agents and the circular! are substantially the same. They recite that under the provisions of the Ne braska laws, "effective at midnight April 30, it will be unlawful to have in our possession, transport, or de liver intoxicating liquors destined to any point in Nebraska. It will also be unlawful to receive for shipment to points outside of the state after-midnight April 30. -, "Effective at once, you must refuse shipments destined to points within the state. - For points putside the state where liquors can be legally shipped, such shipments must be ac tually in our possession and billed be fore midnight of April 30. All liquor on hand must be delivered before Slay The circulars are issued on advice of the legal departments of the re spective roads and it is asserted that all agents will be held responsible for violations. i Problems for Road. One problem that confronta the railroads is to determine how they are going to handle liquor shipments en route to destination and that can not be delivered before May 1, the date' when the prohibition law be comes effective. The law provides that delivery must be made before May 1 and ft also provides that carriers must not have liquor in their possession on that date. With them the question is what is to be done with the liquor if it cannot be delivered within the pro scribed time. There is no provision of law for its destruction and while the carriers are liable for violation of the law if they have it on hand, there is no way by which they can dispose of it. Under the law the stuff cannot be shipped back to point of origin, for in so doing, coming from the east or south, it wuld have to go into and through dry territory, which in itself would be a violation of the provisions of the Nebraska law.' In handling shipments of liquor rail roads have been doing -an enormous business in the last ten days. Con signments of from one to 100 gallons have gone forward to hundreds of towns in Nebraska, Wyoming and South Dakota, but aince Friday morn ing there has been a decided falling off in the business. lord Northcliffe Offers i Paper to U. S. Publishers Washington, April 2SV-Lord North cliffe, the noted British publisher, has offered the output of his print paper mills in northeastern Canada to American newspaper publishera to re lieve the print paper situation; The output of the mills it 60,000 tons a year and sufficient factor to prob ably break the present high market. Bucket Brigade and the Bottle Battalion Go to the Trenches Forces Recruited to War Strength to Mark Passing; of John Barleycorn. ALL IN AT THE DEATH . The parade is on. , The bucket brigade, whose badge is the o'erflowing can, has been re- enforced by the bottle battalion, whose distinction is a bulging hip pocket or a slender, oblong paper box. Each has recruited to full strength to pay last homage to ol' John Bar leycorn, who is neither late nor la mentedyet. Nebraskans are indulg ing in what Mark Twain might call some "fremature" obsequies for Old Man Booze. . There is merry making at the wake, Everybody smiles, even the bartender who ia about to loss his job and the bartender's boss, who is about to loss his business. It's a happy gathering that is in at the death. Forth from any saloon, the "drys" daily see a steady file of convivial livers. It is not that they come forth from the saloons that peeves the dry rooter. What they bring forth that irks him. "Gimme a bottle of preparedness," nonchalantly a customer confides to the white-coated alchemist across the BOHEMIANS RALLY AROUHDOLD GLORY Convention to Organize Flan for Recruiting for United States Army. MEN FROM THREE STATES Bohemians of Nebraska, Kansas and Dakota are holding a convention in Bohemian Sokol hall, Thirteenth and Martha streets, for thi purpose of uniting all people of Bohemian descent in an organiied and uniform effort in recruiting at' able-bodied Bo hemian men for the United States army and navy, and also for the pur pose of raising funds for the Bo hemian Independence committee that ia working in diplomatic circles in the allied countries and striving to obtain independence for the Cisco-Slovaks, more than 12,000,000 people. At the head of this committee if Professor Masaryk, former member of the Austrian parliament and now a lecturer in King's college, London. His American wife ia still in Bo hemia. A number of leading . Bohemians, former deputies, professors and jour nalists, who escaped from Austria, are in Russia. France, Italy, ttt, and have' organized Bohemian units for the armies of the individual allied coun tries. From among the Bohemian prison ers in Russia most of whom have vol untarily left the Austrian army, there is being formed a regular Bohemian army, numbering about 100,000. The duty of the Bohemians in the United States from the beginning of the war has been to aid financially the families of Bohemian soldiers in Eng Four-Cylinder Roadster Low-Cost Luxury rpHAT a light car may afford luxuryin the tame de gree as a big car may never have occured to you. And yet Scripps-Booth cars have been bought chiefly by those who have been accustomed to the luxury of costlier cars. . They like the Scripps-Booth because it is a car they can drive without loss of dignity. They quickly discover that it rides with all the comfort that they have experienced in the larger, heavier cars. They find that their wives and daughters can handle it as easily as they do., We should like to extend your interest in the Scripps Booth to a demonstration of its excellent performance. W. M.

The charge of the 600 which lured a certain Mr. Tennyson to write poetry has nothing on the charge which countless . thirsty Nebraskans are making upon the oases. Bottle after bottle disappears from in front of the big, bevelled mirrors as man after man enters and emerges. So great has the drain been upon stocks that many thirst emporiums in Omaha will close their doors today. Drouth has already descended upon many places out state for the same reason. From now until May 1 police are watchfully waiting. They anticipate a cork-popping period of intense ac tivity, which, they say, will reign from 8 p. m. Saturday to past midnight Monday. Police surgeons have stocked up with cotton bandages for cracked heads and made other preparations which have converted . their quarters at central station into a human repair shop.

Winter clothing: before beina: stored should be thoroughly brushed and beaten and exposed out of doors to strong sunlight for several hours and then put away in moth-proof con tainers. (Dresher's improved clean ing process of course makes much of the above unnecessary.) Loose rugs are not so apt to be in fected by the moths, add the experts, as the closely tacked edge of the carpet, but they should be swept on the other side as well as the uooer once in a while.
