General Custer is probably best remem

of the regular army pattern of the period.

BOOST THEIR CROPS
Thirty freight agents of the Union Pa
cific, coming from as many different
points on the company's Kansas lines,
are at headquarters holding a family
meeting with - the head officials. They
come from the eastern, central, northern
and western portions of the state and
are all enthusiastic over Kansas crop
prospects this year.
The Kansas railroad men declare that
the winter wheat crop of the Btate Is a
bumper. The yield will exceed that of
any former year and the quality is of
the best This crop has all been secured,
a large portion of It has been-threshed
and much of it Is being marketed. The
wheat is turning out from twenty to
thirty bushels per acre And many fields
are running as high as forty bushels.
While there has not been too much rain,
all of the railroad men say there has been
an abundance for the corn and that with
a few exceptions where the area Is very
limited the crop promises to be the best
the state has ever garnered. As far west
as Ellis, where corn Is never looked upon
as a sure crop, this year it Is good, and
with seasonable weather from now on it
will husk from thirty to forty bushels per
acre, while east and southeast the yield
will be fully double this.
According to the railroad men most of
the corn belt of Kansas has been visited
with two or three heavy rains within the
last ten days, and with one more rain
before the middle of August a bumper
crop will be assured.

Hot Weather Helps
for Skin and Hair
The Hot winds and scorching sun of
summer will not mar the clear, velvety
complexion and delicate skin if a plain
spurmax lotion . is applied dally. Ton
can prepare your own lotion for a trif
ling sum by stirring two teaspoonfuls
glycerine in Pint witch hazel (or hot
water,) then adding 4 ounces spurmax.
This spurmax lotion is invisible when
on, does not spot, streak or rub off and
will banish tan, freckles, lines, age
marks and blotches, as well as dispel
the oily, shiny condition.
Hair shampooed frequently wth a
teasppoonful canthrox dissolved in a cup
of hot water will quickly regain Its for
mer rich color and gloss and always be
soft and silky. Nothing can equal can
throx to promote a clean, healthy con
dition of hair and scalp, and its use
keeps the hair beautifully soft and lus

Omaha Club Takes
Referendum as to
A referendum of members of the Omaha
club Is being taken to advise the di
rectors on the question of enlarging the
club house by the addition of a building
on the west side to contain card and
reading rooms and squash courts, at
an estimate cost of 840.000. The architect's
diagram of the proposed change aeoort
panies the postal card, which members
are Invited to fill and return. The detailed
explanation of what la Involved among
other things says:
The fixed indebtedness of the club Is
855.000, made up of a mortgage of 835,000
on the club house, 110,000 mortgage on me
strip of land adjoining and 810,000 owed
the bank. It Is hoped the club will re
duce this by the Drat of the year to
850.000. With the suggested addition the
fixed Indeptednesa would be 890,000.
The board has asaurance that a mort
gage of 865,000 pan be placed on the
realty and the balance, 825.000, can be
borrowed from the banks The Interest
charges now amount to 82-850 , and
assuming the addition is built would
approximate 86,400. Without doubt at
least twenty-five new- member could be
obtained, whose dues would offset the
The board, after careful consideration,
believes, that It la to the interest of the
rluh and of the cltf that lounging and
card rooms and squash courts be built. At
present we are using the rooms desig
nated -for a writing room as a card
room and this room Is inadequate to
meet the demands, besides leaving no
appropriate writing room.
About two years ago the construction
of an addition waa submitted to the
members on the theory that the members
would take bonds to cover the cost ana
