Following the departure of the Na tional Guards tho work of organizing Home Guard companies will be push ed with vigor. Following Is n letter to the chair men of the county councils of defense, calling attention to the urgent neces sity of organizing home guard units: "Many Inquiries have reached tho State Council of Defense relative to the formation of the Home Guards ln the several coiumuultlcsf of the state. The state council, after consultation with Governor Neville and Adjutant General Steele. U authorized to give you the following Information: "Thnt as soon as the Natlonnl Guard regiments of Nebraska leave the state, the adjutant general, at the request of the governor, will Im mediately commence the organization of reserve mllltla forces, under rulep and regulations ns provided by law. This reserve mllltla will take the plnce of the present National Gunrd. When the reserve mllltla organiza tions are completed, If It becomes necessary In the smnller communi ties of the state, the governor will commission officers who will be nu thorlzed to organize Home Guard contingents for local purposes of pro tection nnd patriotic endeavor. Counties Should Help. "Tho several county councils nro urged to encourage the work which Adjutant General Steele has under taken In organizing reserve mllltln contingents and to assist him ns much ns possible In accomplishing this spc clal task. "The state council nlso calls the attention of the county councils to the mess fund movement which seeks to ndd additional provision for the comforts nnd needs of the enlisted men of tho several National Guard regiments which nre about to leave Nebraska. It Is n very, necessary and commendable thing to do nnd we ask the several county councils to nsslst generously this particular pntrlotlc effort." Vicksburg Commission Meets. The Vicksburg commission met In the ofllec of Governor Neville last Wednesday nnd discussed plans for the Nebraska train to the Vicksburg "Fifty Years of Peace" celebration to be held October 10 to 10. The last legislature voted $20,000 to send Ne braska veterans to tho celebration. Five hundred nnd forty Nebraska veterans have registered for the trip, but not more thau 500 nro expected to go. It may be necessary for tho veterans to pay their own expenses to tho central part from which the vet erans will leave for the south. Even then It may not be possible to pay all of the faro nnd the commission will then prorate it among men going on the trip. Demands of Labor Reasonable. Demand of Omaha labor unions ns to hours of labor, wages and Improv ed working conditions were uot un reasonable, nnd unions at tho present time are willing to nccept conditions ns they existed before tho wnr, nc cordlng to the report of the state hoard of mediation filed with Govern or Neville. The report rehenrses the history of the Omaha building trades strike, and urges the governor nnd state council of defense to take some action, whereby Omaha employers may be brought to agree to return to "before the war" conditions and live up to the suggestions made by Secretary of Lohor Wilson and Indorsed by Presi dent Wilson. County Agent Medium of Defense. Nnder the provisions of admin istration's food control bill tho sum of $115,000 hns been set aside for county ngent work in Nebraska.

SOLD SHOTGUN FORTE MOLLIS And Filed on Western Canada Land. Now Worth $50,000. Lawrence Bros, of Vera, Saskatche wan, are looked upon ns being nmongst the most progressive farmers ln West ern Cnnndn. They have bad their "ups-and-downs," nnd know what It Is to be ln tight pinches. They perse vered, nnd aro now. In nn excellent flnnnclnl position. Their story Is an Interesting one. Coming ln from tho stntes they traveled 6vcrlnnd from Calgary ncross the Bnttlo river, tho' Red Deer river, through the Eaglo Hills nnd on to Hattleford. On tho wny their horses were stolen, but thl did not dishearten them. They hnd some money, with which they bought more horses, and some provisions. When they reached Battleford they had only money enough to pay their fcrrlnge over the Saskatchewan river, nnd this they hnd to borrow. It was In 1000 that they filed on homesteads, having to sell a shotgun for ten dol lars In order to get sufficient money t do so. Frank Lawrence says: "Since thnt tlmo we hnvo acquired altogether n section nnd a half of land, In nddltlon to renting another three qunrters of a section. If wo hnd to sell out now we could probably realize about $50,000, nnd hnvo mado all this since wo camo here. Wc get crops In this district of from 80 to 35 bushels of whent to the acre and oats from 40 to 80 bushels to tho acre. Stock here pays well. Wc hnve 1,700 sheep, 70 cattle and 00 horses, of whlcb a number are registered Clydes." Similar successes might be given of the experiences of hundreds of farm ers throughout Western Canada, who hnve done comparatively as well. Why should they not dress well, live well, have comfortablo homes, with all mod ern equipments, electric light, steam heat, pure ventilation, and automo biles. Speaking of automobiles It will be n revelation to the reader to learn, that during the first half of 1017, 10, 000 automobile licenses were Issued lt Albcrtn, twice ns many as In tho wholo of 1010. In Saskntchewan, 21,000 li censes were issued up to tho first of May, 1017. In Its monthly bulletin for June the Canadian Bank of Commerce makes special reference to this phnso nnd to the general prosperity of the West ln the following: "Generally speaking the western farmer Is, ln many respects, In a mucb better position thnn hitherto to In crease his production. Two ycare of high prices for his products hnvo en abled him, even with a normal crop, to liquidate a substantial proportion, of bis liabilities and at the same time to buy Improved fnrm mnchlnery. Hl prosperity Is reflected ln tho demand; for building materials motor cars and other equipment. It Is no doubt true thnt some extravagance Is evi denced by the astonishing demand for motor cars, but it must bo remembered: thnt many of these cars will mako for efficiency on tho form and economize both tlmeimd labor." Advertisement. Tommy Explains. A couple of Charlestown kiddle were celebrating Bunker Hill Day by exploding n few torpedoes, nccordlng to the Boston Transcript. Said Nellie: "I don't see how the Germnns can blow up a big ship with one of these things." "Oh, .you girls can't expect to under stand about such things," said Tommy,, with u superior air. "Of course, the torpedoes they use nre about a hundred tlmeB ns big and they use a derrick to lift them up und drop them on the ship." Conservation. "Did you have any luck fishing?' "Well, I didn't catch any fish. Bat I made the same piece of bait last a remarkably long time." WOMAN COULD HARDLY STAND Restored to Health by Lydus. E. Pinkh&m't Vegetable Compound. Pnlton. N. Y.
