.Whether the drastic quarantine against
the foot andmouth disease will be con
tinued Indefinitely In Nebraska or lifted
when the present order runs out on
March lrt will be settled today when
the State Live Stock Sanitary board
meets at Uncoln.
The present order has been on for a
month and a petition of S.000 names Is
said to have been presented to the gov
ernor asking that it be lifted. On the
other hand a petition asking that tho
quarantine be kept on Nebiaska for an
indefinite period, or until all possible
danger of the spread of the eplr.ootlc has
ceased has been circulated In the western
part of the state among the heavy stock
growers who are said to be backed by
large financial Institutions.
The meeting tomorrow will be a most
Important one, it is said, and the result
will largely depend upon the stand taken
by the Nebraska bankers and the large
western stock growers.

A proposition In the nature of a com -
promise will probably be otfere.l leaving
the whole matter to co-operative action
between the state sanitary boards of Ne
braska and Iowa.
Lieutenant Governor Harding of Iowa
and State Veterinarian J. I. Gibson of
Iowa will be present at the meeting in
Lincoln. State Veterinarian Gibson of
Iowa says there are eighty counties In
Iowa pronoi-nced free area by both state
and federal authorities at tho present
time. He criticises as folly the adoption
of any quarantine measures unnecessarily
The present Nebraska embargo he
thinks is especially sex ere on feeder stock
and pure bred stock which can not be
moved across the state line. The local
stockmen who have handled the western
Iowa feeders for years are suffering pos
sibly the loss of 2M cars a day. Some
of these men say that the present quar
antine order Is rigid only Insofar as It
keeps the feeder cattle from western
Iowa out and does not affect the fat
cattle for Immediate slaughter. They
argue that with stuff coming into Ne
braska tbere has been spread of the foot
and mouth disease and they bclievt Uiat
with the proper precautions on the part
of the authorities of both states no In
fected cattle would come in if the em
bargo were lifted insofar as western
Iowa cattle are affected.

feared If the present drastlo quarantine

"copy" does not make con

In fact "copy" is all there
is to Advertising. And all
there is to "copy" is person
ality which, in this in
stance, is merely another
word for salesmanship. Per
sonality is the pulling power
in all successful advertising.
The merchant who can pro

farmer out in Wisconsin by
the name of Jones to invent
a new way of selling it. He
made some sausage out of
the sweet, juicy, tender lean
meat of little pigs for local
consumers. After his neigh

enough of it. No one is go

The ordinary alarm clock

You don't welcome its intru

arc tempted to throw it out
of the window the first time
it gets busy. As you read the
Big Ben advertising from
day to day, however, you are
conscious of a growing af

begin to want him for a

wrote that advertising could
sell you a Big Ben alarm
