When a cold hangs on, as often hap
pens, or when you have hardly gotten
over one cold before you contract another,
look out, for you are liable to contract
some vt-ry serious disease. This succession
of colds weakens the system and lowers
the vitality so that you are much more lia
ble to contract chronic catarrh, pneumonia
or consumption. Cure your cold while
you can. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy

CROWDS SEE REINDEER MAN
These are busy days for Santa
After eleven months spent in the
workshop up at the North Pole mak
ing toys and keeping the reindeers in
good shape, it's quite a change to
come to Omaha and spend your
time In Toyland where the children
are trooping Joyously through all
But Santa Claus likes it. Bless
you, of course he does. And he has
a cheery word for every little child
that comes to shake hands with
him. He has more than that. At one
Omaha department store he began
yesterday giving away a box of
candy to every youngster who came
to see him.
The way that news spread through
Boy and Girl Land made Paul Revere
look like a crosstown street car. tn Just
a Jiffy after the candy-giving had been
discovered by a few early birds it was
all over town.
Came I. Ilea n Flood.
From all directions the flood of kids
came. The Pled Piper of Hamlin crowd
was a mere handful compared to this
They stormed the doors. The railing In
front of Santa Claus' cotton-snow cov
ered house was soon a Jam of eager
youngsters. They filed past all day, each
being presented with a little box of
sweets. A couple of policemen had to be
called in the afternoon to help handle
The Santas in the other stores had a
busy days, too. One of them has a house
all his own with doors and windows and
everything. Inside there's a fireplace and
Santa sits on a big sofa. All about the
walls and on the floor and mantleplece
are toys, toys, toys.
The stream of children goes In the front
door and out the side. My, my. It doesn't
seem there could be so many children
In Omaha! Big and little. Boys in sweat
ers and with holes in their stockings
and boys in fur coats and Eton collars.
Girls, rich and poor. In the hearts of
all beats eagerness and love for good
old Saint Nick.
And such a Jolly old soul as he is!
In his red suit bordered with white fur
and his white whiskers and white hair
and with his Jolly laugh and kindly
Inquiry as to what each youngster wants,
why, he's Just grand.
"Ha, ha, ha," laughs Santa as the
kids stream In and he shakes their
eager hands and now and then pats one
on the head. "Ha, ha, ha, I am so glad
to see such nice little boys and girls.
Come right in, don't push. This is my
busy day. Saturdays I'm always busiest.
You must come sometimes anoder day.
Then we sit down and have a nice long
talk. Saturdays I can't talk so long. It's
my busy day."
A little boy Is stopping after his hand
shake. Ills face is serious and determined.
He has evidently given long and serious
thought to this occasion.
"Sandy Claws, I want either a tricycle
or a bicycle for Christmas," he says.
"All right, my boy, all right," says
Santa, "I vlll remember It." And then
as the boy la nearly out the door Santa
calls after htm as though not quite sure,
"A tricycle or a bicycle?" and the boy
nods his head vigorously.
And so the stream continues. A young
ster fishes back. He has forgotten some
thing. "I forgot to tell you, Santy Claws, my
little brother wants a drum. He couldn't
come today. His name is ."
Santa keeps a book and pencil, for there
are certain practical youths who believe
It is safest if Santa puts down the name
and address so as to be sure he doesn't
forget. "It's the next house to the cor
ner," some will say, and Santa writes
down, "next house to the corner" in
the bcok. No chance for him to go wrong
on such an oider.

ARTESIAN WELLS FOR THE
PEOPLE OF ISLAND OF LEMN0S
(Corre.-p-ndcnce of The Associated Press.)
LONDON. Nov. lO.-When the first
British naval forces landed at Lemnos,
near the entrance of the Dardanelles,
they were surprised to find that the
Istnnd, which has an area of 200 square
m les and a population of Sn.ooo. was
practically destitute of drinking water,
except for uncertain supplies from a few
sum II springs. The allied troops were
supplied with mineral water sent In ship
loads through the generosity of a French
woman In Marseilles.
The British authorities promptly sent to
Canada for engineers, who are now en
gaged In sinking artsstan wells wh'ch
will guarantee the people of Lemnos a
reliable and abundant water supply.
A Scenario night There.
