In fifteen minutes, with only a cake of Ivory Soap and water,
you can make a better cleansing paste than you can buy.
Ivory Soap Paste will take spots from clothing ; and will clean
carpets, rugs, Kid gloves, slippers, patent, enamel, russet leather and
canvas shoes, leather belts, painted wood-work and furniture. The
special value of Ivory Soap in this form arises from the fact that it
can be used with a damp sponge or cloth to cleanse many articles
that cannot be washed because they will not stand the free applica
tion of water.
A WORD OF WARNING. Ttwrs art many wWt soaps, each represented to be "Just as rood
, as the 'Ivory';" they an not. but nice all counterfeit, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities ol
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory " Soap and Insist upon getting It

Bad management keeps more people
in poor circumstances than any other
one cause. To be successful one must
look ahead and plan ahead so that
when a favorable opportunity presents
itself be is ready to take advantage of
it, A little forethought will also save
much expense and valuable time. A
prudent and careful man will keep a
bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera,
and Diarrhoea Remedy in the house,
the shiftless fellow will wait until nec
essity compels it and then ruin his best
horse going for a doctor and have a big
doctor bill to pay, besides; one pays
out 25 cents, the other is out a hundred
dollars and then wonders why his

The essential points in a Separator are capacity, thoroughness of
separation,! and simplicity and durability of construction. On each of
these points the Nichols-Shepard Separator has great advantage over all
other threshing machines. Any one of the nine sizes will
thresh more and save m6re grain than the corresponding
size of any other separator. The Nichols-Shepard
Separator is as strongly, sim
ply, yet perfectly made as a
separator can be. The
work of separation is
done without the aid
of pickers, raddles, forks,
or other complicated parts
that in other machines cause
' continual bother and expense
by breaking or wearing out.

Weather of the State.
General summary of the weather
and orop conditions over the stale as
reported by the state observer at Lin
The past week has been warm and
wet. The average daily temperature
excess has been about one degree. The
first day of the week was very hot, tho
maximum temperature exceeding 100
degrees in most of the central and
western counties. The last days of the
weok were coolor than normal.
The rainfall has been above normal
in all excep,; a few of tho southeastern
ceuntlos, whoro about half the aormal
amount foil. In most of the state it
exceeded an inch, and in many coun
ties exceeded two inches. In Sheman
Buffalo, Kearney aad Harlan counties
the rainfall was very heavy, varying
from three to nearly six inches.
The past week has been the most fa
vorable one of the soason for crop
growth. The high temperature tho
first days was unfavorable in a few
southwestern counties, but was fol
lowed by general and heavy rains,
which revived the small grain consid
erably. Warm weather, with frequent
showers, haa caused all crops to grow
rapidly. Oats have continued to im
prove, and now promise a good crop
in many eastern counties. Winter
wheat and ryo have filled well, but tho
crop, will be light. Corn has grown
exceedingly well. There is some
complaint of weedy fields, but on tho
whole the fields are about as clean as
usual, and corn is now in unusually
good condition. The cutting of timo
thy and clover for hay has commenced
in southern counties.

"For forty years I have tried various
cough medicines, Ono Minute Cough
Cure Is best of all," It relieves in

troubles. C. L. Cutting.
