GERMAN WAR INVENTION
London, Sept. 30. The meager
reports from the British front in the
west allowed to pass the censor tell
of a new method of warfare by the
Hermans. In making atttacks on
the British lines they cloaked their
advance with smoke barrages. They
also used flame projectors.
The veil of secrecy which has
hung over the operations along the
British front in Belgium and north
ern France since the latter part of
the week still remains impenetrable,
so far as the news offerings of the
British war offices are concerned.
Since Friday nothing except brief
statements have reached the out

The Germans, the British state

their objectives, employed a thick

in a new raid of great force on
England. Two squadrons following
others flying singly crossed the
English coast. But four or five

unofficially reported destroyed. The
raiders dropped bombs everywhere.
Italians Start Eig Offensive.
Meanwhile, the Italians have
started another big offensive against
the Austrians on the Isonzo front.
On the Bainsizza plateau height
positions have been stormed and
taken by General Cadorna's forces
and 1,409 prisoners captured. By
their new successes the Italians have
brought their line almost to the
bridgehead of the Chiapovana river,

strategic value of the Italian gain,

Insidious forces are quiet and persistently at work, mak
ing sales for mail order houses.
Some of the highest salaried men of the United States
are directing the advertising for the big mail order houses.'
Some of the shrewdest men in America are behind the cata
logs ami letters you get from these concerns.
You are appealed to for business by every method and
from every angle that these keen students of human nature
can invent. Xo stone is left unturned.
You are bombarded with the cleverest of letters letters
"built up" word at a time, and criticized and studied as care
fully as the wording of a peace treaty between two nations.
It takes days sometimes weeks, for these high salaried men
to draft out a series of catalog house letters. After the word
ing of these letters has been perfected to the greatest pos
sible degree they are then reproduced by the hundreds of
thousands, on fine machines built especially to make a per
efct reproduction of a typewritten letter.
From time to time, you, together with thousands of
others, receive these machine-made letters that look like they
were dictated and written on a typewriter.
Persistence wins, especially if that persistence is back
ed up by an organization of keen brained men who make this
kind of persistence their special business and life study.
So the first thing you know you are taking the advice of
one of these letters ami are sending your money away to a
mail order house.
Food for thought, don't you think?

MAKING FARMERS RICH
WILL MAUPIN AMAZED AT PRO
DUCTIONS OF ONCE DE
Trip Through Greeley and Garfield
field Counties Is Revelation
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 30. Wes
tern Nebraska, the "sandhill region"
Is experiencing its greatest prosper
ity, declares Will Maupin, newly
appointed director of the state.
Here is Mr. Maupin's story of a
trip which he made there:
"One glorious feature about the
"sandhills of Nebraska" is that most
of them are not really sandhills.
"The director of publicity has just
returned from a little scouting trip
that took him to the northern
boundry of Garfield county, and
which enabled him to see most of the
North Loup river valley and the
valley of the Calamus, together with
the hill lands overlooking those
"Another good thing about the
sandhills is that this year they are
producing wealth beyond the fond
est dreams of people who have al
ways maintained that this section
would some day come Into Its own.
I have seen no finer corn anywhere
in the state than I saw in Greeley
and Garfield counties. And it is out
of the way of frost right now. But
even the immense corn crop of those
counties is not a marker to the hay
and grass crops.
"And hay, by the way. Is legal
tender these days. There was con
siderable wheat in that section this
year, and the acreage sown this fall
is immense, all things considered.
Burwell, Garfield county, claims to
be the largest cream shipping sta
tion in Nebraska, and from the
figures I gleaned there I am inclined
to believe the claim is well founded
At any rate, cream to the value of
more than $11,000 was shipped from
Burwell during the year ending Sep
tember 1, and at the same time the
Burwell creamery took something
like $35,000 worth.
"I have estimated Nebraska's corn
crop this year at 225.000,000 bush
els. My recent trip inclines me to
increase my estimate something like
twelve or fifteen million bushels.
But more than all else I was im
pressed by the dairying possibilities
of a section of Nebraska that too
many Nebraskans ' believe to be a
barren waste of sandhills. There is
an immense amount or good agricul
tural land In that section sure
crops and comparatively cheap land.
Land that was considered of little
worth twenty years ago is now sell
ing at from $75 to $100 an acre,
but of course it is well improved and
not far from railroad faciliites. But
the opportunities up there are just
as good, and almost as numerous.
Mr. Jack Marvin is trjing to lo
cate his two daughters, who were
taken to a Home For Children at
Omaha from Nebraska City several
year3 ago. Any information con
cerning their whereabouts address
Mrs. II. D. Black. 9-20-2vkd
If your children are subject to
croup get a bottle of Charnberlain's
Cough Remedy, and when the attack
comes on be careful to follow the
plain printed directions. You will
be surprised at the quick relief
which it affords.
