Possesses important feature of design which are found
also in those higher priced cars as embodying the very
latest and best engineering practices. These superior
features, which for two years have distinguished the
Oakland Six as a car of unusually advanced design, and
which are now employed in the latest models of many
of the more costly cars, not to be found in their entirety,
in any of the other cars in the Oakland price-class. As
a result, the Oakland Sensible Six, in the estimation of
the buying public, is raised above the plane of its price,
and naturally is compared to and competes with cars of
considerable higher price than its own.

Eugene Xutzman, son of Hon.
Fred Nutzman, and wife, of Berlin
precinct, when he took his physical
examination yesterday, informed Dr.
Ciudup, of the examining board, he
had a crooked arm, but hoped it

question as to his passing when he
went to tin- camp, where the soldiers

Frim Wednesday's Daily.
W. E. Rosencrans returned home
last evening from a trip to Chase
county, where he was with a num
ber of men who were looking over
the lands in the west, and to a por
tion of whom Mr. Rosencrans sold
land. Mr. Rosencrans reports the
country looking fine, having just had
some refreshing rains, which have
given renewed growth to the vegeta
tion and crops. Threshing is in full
swing in that country, the wheat
turning out well and of an excellent
quality. Mr. Rosencrans will make
another trip to this country soon.

Just as soon as they shall have got

INFORMATION IS GIVEN
GOVERNORS BY GROWDER
Provost Marshal Issues Instructions
to Executives of All the
Washington, D. C, August b. The
first one-third of the quota of 087,
000 men drafted for army service un
der the selective bill will be called to
the colors September 1, and sent to
training camps between September 1
This information has been com
municated to the governors of all
states by Provost Marshal General
This one-third of the first quota
will consist of 229,000 men.
This will bring the strength of the
United States army on that date up
to about 1,000,000 men.
General Crowder dispatched the fol
lowing telegram to the governors of
the states today cautioning them to
make certain that the first one-third
of their quota of the first increment
of registered men is ready in time.
"New regulations governing mobi
lization and the certification of men
from district boards to adjutants gen
eral will be mailed to you on August
9th. In the meantime local boards
...v- v.v-w c.wv-u """
nave not been exempted or
ed, either because they failed to file
any claim or because their claim has
been decided adversely.
Strict Compliance Necessary.
"Strict compliance with this rule is
necessary, since on September 1 the
war department will call for r.ot to
exceed one-third of the quote from
each state to be entrained for mobi
lization camps between September 1
and r. Unless we wish to be put in
a position of not furnishing men as
fast as the war department is reudy
to receive them, each slate should
have accumulaed by September 1 :
minimum of one-third of its quota n- t
exempted or discharged. This can only
be attained if local boards certify the!
lists up with great expedition."
General Crowder has also sent ad
ditional caution to examining physi
cians of local boards stating that in
order to prevent the terrible ravages
which result from introduction into
the army of that dread disease of the
eyes known as trachoma, the litis of
every recruit be everted to insure the
absence of this disease and that any
borderline or suspicious cases be re
ferred to an ophthalmic surgeon es
pecially qualified in this line.

Did it ever occur to you that when you buy at a
"Clearance Sale" you unquesionably make a "saving,"
but those who bought during the season have been
paying in advance for your saving?
It is obvious that making a sale of old merchandise
is suicide. Much of the new stock is inferior to old, and
costing much more.
Use plenty of salt with "Clearance Sale" adver
tising this year. Styles are not changing materially and
the business man is not giving away staple merchan
