that thereare fewer Hession flies
this year than any year in the last
seventeen. Under these circum

southeastern Nebraska early in
September, fully three weeks sooner
than would be advisable were the
Hession fly present, in sufficient
numbers to do serious injury.

of the war, which fixed the

That prosperity prevails among far

by a letter received by Mayor Smith

behalf of citizens of the community
to sond a carload of potatoes to the
metropolis for distribution among the
poor. The letter states that, "as we

Orders received at the Nebraska
headquarters of the co-operating pub
lic employment bureau at Omaha state
that Nebraska within the next few
weeks or a month must furnish S.1S0
men for essential war work in the ship
yards, railroads, munition factories
and o'her war activities. The order Is
presumed, to refer to the Nebraska
quota of the 1,000.000 more men for
war industries which the government
wants at once. State Director Kleffner
says it is possible that the bureau will
have to step into the mercantile estab
lishments throughout the state and
tahe men considered engaged in non
essential employment and send them
on to the government work. "It Is
likely that we will get authority to
draft these men for the war industries
through the increase in the draft,".

the railroad is taied. The company baa

been shipped there, who wcrk a few

Conserve Your Money
It is just as vital that the wealth of the citizens of this conn
try be conserved as that any other necessity be conserved to
aid in the winning of the War.
Money is the greatest requirement of the Government; the
absolutely paramount commodity, the essential thing which
we can all have a part in providing.
The Capital Issues Committee Was
Created to Help Conserve Money
The Capital Issues Committee has legal jurisdiction over
all issues in excess of f'l 00.000 and has requested that all
issues of if'l 00,000 or less be submitted to the District Com
mittee for approval.
It will be regarded as an unpatriotic act for any stock to
be sold which has not received the permission of the Cap
ital Issues Committee, and all citizens are asked to co
operate with the. Committee by refusing to buy any stock
which has not been submitted to the Committee and received
the proper permit.
Insist Upon Seeing the Permit
Before Buying Any Stock
"When you are asked to buy stock or bonds in any com
puny, insist upon seeing the permit of the Capital Issues
Committee for its sale. Do not accept any statement that
it is all riirht, that the permit is in the offices of the com
pany. DO NOT BUY ANY STOCK unless the proper per
mit is produced for your inspection.
Do not trade your LIBERTY BONDS for any stock, no
matter if a permit for its sale has b-en issued or not. The
boys at lho front have enlisted for the duration of the
"War. Surely you should enlist your money without res
ervation. You owe to the Government your co-operation in providing
the monev needed to carry on the War, and the Capital
Issues Committee helps you to avoid non-essential invest
ments. lMease do all that you can to assist the Government in this

Ifi NEXT DRAFT
GENERALS MARCH AND CROWD
ER DISCUSS WITH PRESIDENT
THE CHANGES TO BE "MADE
Washington, Sept. 3. No chang
es are contemplated in the basic
rules governing the operation of the
draft in the case of men included
under the new age limits. This was
indicated today by Trovost Marshal
General Crowder who, after going
to the White House with General
March, explained that the principles
which prevailed in the selection of
men between the ages of 21 and 31
would be retained in large measure.
There will be some changes in
the details relating to men engaged
in certain industries and more es
pecially to men of more mature age
included in the new registration.
Just what these are the government
is not prepared to announce, but it
is believed that rules to cover all
questions that can be foreseen now
will be sent to draft boards within
a few days.
General March and General Crow
der conferred with President Wilson
for an hour. They were summoned
by the president, who wished to fa
miliarize himself with all details of
the man power measure and pro
posed method of operation.

made which will automatically ex

as a body cannot yet be stated. Di
rector General MeAdoo is under
stood to be in favor of providing
some method other than the decision
of local boards for exemtping es
sential railroad employes. General
Crowder said that, under present
plans, the matter of exempting this
class of workers would be in the
hands o fthe district boards to be
taken up by them after the question
naires have been passed on by the
local boards, which, he said, are
without jurisdiction to exempt a
registrant on the ground that he is
an essential industrial worker.
RECOGNIZED BY OUR ALLIES.
All our present Allies have recog
nized Triner's American Elixir of
Bitter Wine as the leading stomach
remedy because of its perfect re
liability. It was awarded highest
honors gold medals and Grand
Prix in England (London 1910),
in Belgium (Brussels 1910), in Italy
(Home 1911), in France (Paris
1911). and then came gold medal.
San Francisco 1915, and Grand
Prix, Panama 191 C. All these re
wards were the highest obtainable
prizes. Triner's American Elixir of
Bitter Wine is the best remedy for
all stomach troubles, constipation,
indigestion, headaches, nervousness,
etc., because it cleans out the in
testines, helps digestion, sharpens
the appetitite and tones up the en
tire system. At drug stores, $1.10.
The same highest prizes were award
ed to Triner's Liniment, the most
efficient preparation for rheumatism,
neuralgia, lumbago, sprains, swell
ings, etc. At drug stores 35 and
65c. By mail 45 and 75c. Joseph
