MENT AS CHAIRMAN
IN RECOGNITION OF GOOD SER
VICES. RENDERED IN PAST,
FRANK SHELDON RECEIVES
From Wednesday's latly.
Mr. F. P. Sheldon of Nehawka.
has been reappointed Chairman of
Cass County's War Savings Commit
tee fo'r the year of 1919. This re
appointment is in recognition of the
services of Mr. Sheldon during the
campaigns for the sale of War Sav
ings Stamps for 1918. Under his
direction our county was thorough
ly organized and the campaigns
carried through in a manner which
fully justified his appointment by
the state committee. We congratu
late Mr. Sheldon on his reappoint
ment, and again offer him our ser
vices in helping to make the 1919
drive as successful as la.'t year.
It is necessary for us to again
buy stamps. The Government needs
money to finish the work and bring
our soldiers home. It is for us
here at home to make our slogan
for 131 9 "DON'T QUIT, FINISH
THE JOB." Our s-olukrs saved lus
live;; and money by quickly and
thoroughly completing their job. If
they had not two million more men
would be going over instead of the
two million now coming home.
Dates and definite plans for the
drive will be sent out from the state
committee at an early date.

IS THE WAR OVER?
You are smiling when you hear
Harry Lauder's song', "Hurrah, the
war is over, hurrah, the fight is
won." But there is a war which will
never be over our constant fight
with poisons produced in our intes
tines by the action of bacteria which
invade our body and must be remov
ed as quickly as possible. Triner's
American Elixir of Bitter "Wine is the
remedy which cleans the intestines
perfectly. .Here is an example of
what it has done for so many pa

American Elixir of Bitter, Wine, I

legislation providing for the resump-
ion of voluntary enlistment in the
army under the national defense act

military committee approved and
reported to the senate the annual
army appropriation bill with provis
ion for a temporary force of about
538.000 men after next July 1.
The increased force for the next
fiscal year was recommended by the
War department, but legislative pro
visions authorizing it were stricken

able report on the bill of Senator
Sheppard of Texas to enforce the
war-time prohibition law
ered today by a senate
It is similar to the bill reported
by the house judiciary committee,
defining intoxicating beverages as
those containing more than" one-half
of 1 per cent of alcohol and au
thorizing search and seizure of
liquor believed held for sale.
The bill does not prohibit storage
of liquor for personal use.
The demand today is for a better
type of business-trained young men
and women. No limit is placed on
salary. Merit, ability and character
are the factors by which the busi
ness man chooses help. The Grand
Island Business College, of Grand Is
land, Nebraska, is strong and pro

the laws of. the State of Nebraska,
