Omaha Boy in France Writes Of Yankee Rail Efficiency John Welsh, federal inspector ot locomotives for this district, has re ceived a letter from his son, Cor poral Edmund Welsh, Company C, Thirteenth regiment of engineers (railway), American expeditionary force. Edmund volunteered soon after war was declared and went with the first force of 10 regiments of railway men to France. These are the men who have put new life into the French railways, especially those near the front. "We have been operating near a large city which has been shelled, re peatedly and which lias been a head liner in the war dispatches since soon after the war started," says Cor poral Welsh. His father believes he refers to Verdun. It i? evident also that lie is in a mountainous region, judging from what he says of the way the trains arc operated. "We have no airbrakes on these 1 rains." he writes. "The method of operating on heavy grades is to run until about two-thirds of it is over the highest crest of the grade. Then it is stopped and the brakes are set and we. go down grade under steam. This is the only safe way of operating on these grades without airbrakes." It is evident also that the place where young Welsh is serving is near the trout, as he says there is a train about every ,W minutes. There is no time card. The line is double tracked and a continuous stream of traffic is kept going in both directions. Train dispatching, he says, is done by telephone. 11c declares the Ameri can engineers arc putting real "Yan kee" efficiency into the important railway lines near the front in France. Corporal Welsh's home is at 3361 Howard street. i WILL DROP RATES FOR HOMESEEKERS Railroads Will Discontinue Time -Honored Practice Dur ing Period of War; Pas senger Men Act. 1 Homeseck J Have been j Ttiesdax s j become a I are none i dav and a s' railroad rates that in fleet the first ami third of each mouth, may have thing of the past.

Omaha Roads Will Drop All Parlor Cars The individual who is going to , travel out ot Omaha and who desires ; to ride in a parlor car had better do ! his tiding prior to January o. After I that parlor cars are to be eliminated ! so far as the Omaha roads are con cerned. While the elimination of parlor cars is a war measure, the order to cease running them does not come from the railroad war board. Passen ger agents of the roads got together and agreed to the proposition. The saving in fuel by reason of cutting out of the parlor car service ts considerable. Railroad operating men have figured it out that the haul ing ot a parlor car 100 miles means the consumption of one ton of coal, thus to carry a car from Omaha to Chicago would mean the burning of live tons of coal, estimated as being $5 a ton, o. a total of $25. Out of Omaha there are something like 100 parlor cars operated daily. Missing Balloon Is Located in Mexico Laredo, Tex., Dec. 29.

Name rt.-eet rlty state The January Ilearance The Removal Sale Bargain The word "Bargain" is most elusive these days because so often abused. The "bargains" offered in the "Double Clearance" are bargains worthy of the name. Time, thought and care was exercised before re-marking the women's suits, coats, dresses, waists, furs, etc., offered. ALL are "bargains." Foresight The values in women's attire that are placed in your pathway now, by reason of the "Double Clearance," will not be available when once this sale shall have been declared ended. Better exercise "foresight," which is no more than a common sense faculty of seeing things far ahead. Desirability Of what avail would women's garments be even at bar gain prices, if they were not "desirable"? The suits, coats, dresses, waists, and furs in the "Double Clearance" are cer tainly desirable. They are stylish beyond question; made up faultlessly.

Chiropractic Hea?th Talks Xorvous di'bility or exhaustion, :ilso popularly known as nervous prostration or nervous weakness, is becoming alarmingly prevalent. The wear, tear and strain of modern life is concentrated upon the nervous system. The care and consequent, fret, worry and labor of this ifco ate greater than ever before known. People who think themselves doomed to an existence under the burden of a so-called "incurable" malady should investigate my methods. Chiropractic never fails to give relief, and if properly pursued, in variably results in a permanent cure.
