they were fearfully improbable.

Hear Miss Fairfax:' I have been go
in out with a young nun for about
two years. During this time he was my
sincere friend. Last week he told me
that he was engaged, but did not love
thy young lad to whom his mother
forced hini to become engaged. He told
me that he loved me and If I promised
to marry him he -would breHk hia en
gagement with the young lady whom he
did not love. J really love him. B. ii.
If thla young man were alncere in hia
friendship for you. he had no right to
devote himself to you at the time that
he. was permitting himself to be, aa he
puim It, "forced" Into an engagement
nth another girl. I'm afraid be is go
ing to make not one but both of you
unhappy. If he will honorably explain
the, situation to hia mother, to the other
girl- and -to your people, perhaps It will
be all right for you to risk an engage
ment with him. But assure yourself of
his loyalty before you permit your af
fections to to go any deeper.

Whn -ou look at thla picture you will
not wonder that there la rejoicing In
France over the recovery of the head of
tho celebrated 'atatue of the "Smiling
Angel," which waa one of the most ad
mired details of the beautiful north por
tal of the Cathedral of Hhelms. It was
broken off during the bombardment In
19H, and waa supposed to have been ut
terly destroyed. Countless thousands of
visitors had gazed upon It with admira
tion during the centurloa that it stood
there, and Its fame had become world
wide among the lovers of art.
Fortunately, somebody found the frag
menta of the head and removed them
to the cellars of the archbishop's palace,
and there, although the palace Itself was
wrecked during tho bombardment, tha
broken masterpiece remained aafe fro.n
further injury. Now It haa been recov
ered, and experts aver that it can be re
paired. The head la split Into Tour pieces,
but the winning smile has not bi-en de
atroyed. There waa a report that the broken
head had been carried off and had found
Its way to America, but thta provea to
be a mistake. Many copies of the statue.
as well aa of the head alone, had long
ago been made, and such copies havo
occasionally turned up In "antloulty
shops'' In Paris, but none of them waa
a perfect reproduction oi tne ormmai.
The museum of the Trooadero, however,
haa a complete cast of tho entire figure.

together with many existing photographa
of the atatue, aa it waa before war be
headed it, will aid in the reconstruction
which French artiata will undertake as

with, the aid of these photographs that the head will be restored to Its original condition from the newly dls-

Fear and worry are chiefly known to
people aa very unpleaaant atatea of
mind, and It la seldom realised except
by niewlcal men that they exercise a
moat profound Influence on the health.
When the mind la anxious and dis
turbed all the functlona of the body go
wrong. The digestive system Is espe
cially disordered, and thla givea rtae to
what is known aa autointoxication, an
exceedingly common condition. 1
Autointoxication meana the absorption
into the blood of polaon formed in the
body itself, and these have much the
aame effect aa poisons taken in from
outside. When the stomach sulks, these
poisona are carried to the brain and
nerves and the breathing disturbed. -
If the anxiety and worry are not for
cibly uiecked things go from bad to
worse and the person falls into a condi
tion of neurasthenia.
On the other hand, feelings of hope,
pleasure and joy both stimulate the di
gestion an. ,.ulp to get rid of the pois
ons which are formed by the breaking
down of foodstuffs.
The cheerful person la rarely a victim
of autointoxication. - We should, there-
tore, make a huo.t of cultivating a
cheerful, Joyous state of mind, it is
not always an easy task, but with' con
stant trying the most despondent per

One of the finest features of the
Rhelma cathedral waa lta wealth of
statues, grouped especially upon and
around the portals. The principal por
tal alone had more than 600, and It la
aald that the entire number decorating
the great church exceeded 1,600. How far
It will be possible to restore the former
glories of the edifice can only be told
after the atorm of war haa blown away.
For many generations the Rhelma
cathedral haa been among ' France'a
greatest attractions, being one of the
half doaen supreme examples of Gothic
architecture in existence. Rhelma and
Amiens- have long disputed the first
place In the estimation of connoisseurs,
but In France Rheims haa a place apart
on account of Its axaoclation with tha
ancient glories of the nation.
It beheld the triumph of the patriotic
work of Joan of Aro when she made
possible the crowning of Charles VII.
In the cathedral In 1429. But every
French monarch, with six exceptions,
haa been crowned at Rhelma. It had
thla distinction because its archbishop
waa the metropolitan of the kingdom.
Clovla waa baptized at Rhelma by St.
Remt, "the apostle of the Franks," cen
turies before the cathedral waa built.
When St. Reml waa only 11 years old
Attlla with hia Huns ravaged that part
of France, but waa driven off by his
great defeat on the Marne, and after
that Rheims became a religious center
for the Franks. The cathedral was
founded In 1212.

Whenever there 1 any deficit In the
mhy supply women are alwaya blamed
for it. According to popular theory, the
modern hv-arnnllon of Herod wears pet
ticoats, and moralists and preacher are
never no eloiiirnt us when declaiming
against the decadent woman of today
who prefers lap do: to babies.

The most anparflelal observation, how
ever, provea that women aro moro willing
to bear children than men are to support
thein, that men not only do not want bl
familleV but they feel aggrieved when
they have them, and that after the sec
ond child every new baby geta a warmer
welcome from lta mother than It doea
from lta father.
Of course, exceptions are to be found
to all general atatements, but when a
married couple are childless tho fault,
physically or morally, Is oflener the
man's than the woman's. Any doctor
will tell you that the wild oata crop la
far more responsible for race aulrldo than
the fashion, and that It's the man's sel
flshnesa rather than tho woman's that
limits the also of a family.
AIbo the records of the domestic rela
tions court show that practically all of
the wife deeertcrs are fathera of
larc families. As long as there are
no children, or only one or two, a man
rarely forsakes his own fireside. It Is
only when the babies begin to tumble
over each other and the home nest over
flows with hungry mouths to feed that
the father bird cravenly flies away to

The other day a number of married
women were discussing thla question,
which they turned Into an experience
meeting after the fashion of women, and
tho unanimous verdict was that no man
wanted a quiver full In thre days. Ho
preferred a bag of golf sticks.
Said one woman: "We have fine chil
dren, and my husband makes no aecret
of the fact that he regarda himself as
a domestic martyr. He Is alwaya com
plaining that he can't keep an automo
bile, or take hunting trip, or do the

children, or only one or two, because all
of h'.i money goes to feeding and cloth

waa a sickly title fellow that I had to

I didn't have time to keep myself dresaed

entertain my husband, and that waa the
beginning of trouble for ua.
"It's when mothers are holding their
babies' handa that the other woman gets
busy holding their husband'a handa. I
have alwaya believed that if I had only

Said the third woman: "Well. It's hu

Some fellows Imagine that they art

are only acting like hogs.
Sanatogen came to the
rescue and let us tell you
Indigestion is the twin
brother of nervousness;
overwork, mental strain,
grief or shock is the cause.
The provexi benefits which
Sanatogen confers upon
people suffering from nerv
ous indigestion are the
happy results of Sanatogen's
tonic and upbuilding effects.
As a scientifically -de vised
food, not as a medicine,
Sanatogen helps both
nerves and digestion
the former by providing
organic phosphorus "in
such a form," according to
Dr. C W. Saleeby and
other authorities, "that
the nervous system can
actually take hold of it,"
and the latter by lightening
the stomach's burden and
making it better able to get
the maximum - nutriment
out of the daily diet.
By thus feeding and
strengthening in a kindly,
natural fashion, Sanatogen
has endeared itself to count
less people subject to indi
gestion. Col. Henry Wat
terson, the famous editor,
boldly asserts he believes
he "could not have regained
his vitality without Sana

Many other prominent people

Sanatogen, and tho beat of it ia
that tbeir experience ia fully up
held by evidence of tha medical
profession, over 2 1,000 members

The "Bell" Policy
TOWARD THE PUBLIC
The success of the Nebraska Telephone
Company, we are confident, depends upon
our operating along lines that meet with
the approval of the public.
The people, we believe, have a right to
know what we are doing and why we are
doing it, and we welcome an opportunity
to explain the reasons for any of our poli
cies or practices.
All our accounts are kept in strict ac
cordance with the best known practices,
so the public at any time may know
through their governing bodies how much
money we take in and what we do with it
It is our aim to use the best and most
advanced equipment, and to render the
public the most dependable service of
which modern brains and science are ca
pable. Years of experience has taught us what
it costs to produce telephone service, and .
we know that we are furnishing service at
the lowest possible rates at which good
service can be produced. " ' '
We aspire to win and merit a reputa
tion with the public for furnishing efficient
service, and for integrity, courtesy and ab
solute fairness in all our dealings.
TOWARD OUR EMPLOYEES
The Bell Telephone System has at
tracted the brightest and most capable
people for each branch of its work. The "'
training is thorough and the worker must
be specially fitted for the position held.
It is our plan to have all our workrooms
healthful and attractive and have every
possible mechanical device provided that
will promote efficiency., speed or comfort.
Good wages, an opportunity for ad
vancement and prompt recognition of .
ability, is a part of the recognized policy
of the Bell Telephone System.
With no expense to the employee we
provide for sickness, disability, accident
and death insurance, and old age pensions,
in a broader spirit than any corp6ration
We strive to assist worthy employees
to accumulate by making it easy for them
to acquire a financial interest in the busi
ness. Nearly half of all the men employed
are stockholders. '
TOWARD OUR STOCKHOLDERS.
We are confident that the public wel
fare is best served by our constantly mak
ing extensions and improvements to our
existing property to meet the continuing
requirements of the public for additional
In order to get new money for these ex
tensions, it is essential that we pay fair
dividends. No man will put his money in
an enterprise unless he is reasonably sure
that it will be safe and that fair dividends
will be paid promptly.
We have absolutely no "watered stock."
A dollar has been invested in physical
property for every dollar's worth of secu,
We aim to pay our stockholders a rea
sonable return on the money they have in-,
vested in our properties. This return, we
believe, should equal that paid the invest
ors in other business enterprises.
