American trade during the remainder
of the war, according to the Bremen

therefore, that many others will be

Use Cocoanut Oil
For Washing Hair
If you want to keep your hair In good
condition, be careful what you wash It with.
Most soaps and prepared shampoos etmtain
too much alkali. This dries the sealp, makes
the hair brittle, and is very harmful. Just
plsin mulstfied eoeoamit oil (which is pure
and entirely greaseless), is much better than
the most expensive soap or anything else
you can use for shampooing, as this can't
possibly injure the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with water and
rub it in. One or two teaspoonfuls will make
an abundanee of rich, creamy lather, and
cleanses the hair and scalp thoroughly. The
lather rinses out easily, and removes every
particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and excessive
oil. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and
It leaves it fine and silky, bright, fluffy and
easy to manage.
You can get mulslflsd cocoanut oil at
most any drug store. It Is very cheap, and
a few ounres le enough to last everyone in
the family for months. Advertisement

The Burgess-Nash store seemed to
be changed suddenly into a Turkish
bazaar yesterday afternoon as the
clock struck 5. Everywhere were seen
men and women, boys and girls wear
ing red fezzes on their heads. On
closer examination the gold lettering
revealed the legend, "Burgess-Nash
Picnic, Krug Park."
It was the hour of the annual picnic
given by the company to its 500 em
ployes. In a few moments the big
brass band was boom-itty-coming-iway,
out in front of the store, under
the leadership of Mr. Barton and Six
teenth street was full of pretty girls
and mere men and boys, all With
fezzes on their heads and tickets in
These tickets had been distributed
to all the employes. They were long,
coupon things, like a railroad ticket
from Omaha to San. Francisco with a
side trip to the Grand Canyon and
stopovers at Winnemucca, Albu

Tickets like these couldn't be too
long. One coupon admitted you to the
park, one rejoiced the inner man with
a box lunch, lemonade and ice cream,
others admitted to the delights of the
roller coaster, merry-go-round, old
mill and such like.
The Special Can.
Well, eight big open cars finally
drew around the curve and stopped in
front of the store. And soon they were
whizzing Krug parkward with the
hapDV crowd, the band booming away
and the folks singing a song about
Burgess-Nash. Oh, Uurgess-Nash

tographer was there and, first thing,
a picture was taken.
Then came the athletic sports.
Some sports! First, the buyers and
managers ran a fifty-yard race in
which "Doc" Lippold's long legs
proved themselves useful as well as
ornamental, winning him first prize.
Atwood Wins Twice.
Rose Yunek carried off first pri
in the ladies' twenty-five-yard dash.
Paul Murphy proved himself fleetest
among the boys and G. Atwood won
the men's fifty-yard dash. G. Atwood
also won the fifty-yard special dash.
Then came the egg and spoon race.
The object of this is to see which
one of a number of girls can carry an
egg in a spoon a distance of twenty-
live yards in the shortest tune. Miss
A. Chub was the only one who ar
rived at the end of the course with the
egg unbroken in the spoon. And the
grass was strewn with the broken hen
fruit ot the losers.
Next was the necktie and collar
race. 1 ins was not a race between
neckties and collars. It was a race by
men who ran from one end of the
course to the other, removed their
neck decorations, ran to the other end
of the course and back, resumed their
neck trimmings and ran back to the
beginning point. Palmer Wert proved
himself the swiftest foot racer-necktie
But, ah, listen to the tale of the
girls' ball throwing contest. This con
test was to see which girl could throw
a base ball the farthest. Common
caution should have directed that it
be held in a ten-acre lot, from which
innocent bystanders would be rigor
ously excluded. The girls took their
places, and a long, broad lane was left
between the crowds of spectators.
The girls aimed carefully down the
lane and let fly with the balls. The
lulls Hew in every direction. Men
dodged, boys ducked, women scram
bled. Talk about the trenches of
France! However, the casualties were
not serious. May l'almer won the
prize. She pretty nearly threw the
ball over the fence. Then came lunch
(coupon No. 2, please). Big boxes of
sandwiches, fruit, pickles, and topped
otf with a brick of ice cream. Step
around to the lemonade barrets and
get all you want.
Messrs. Burgess and Nash "circu
lated" among their employes and had
as good a time as anyone. Mr. Bur
gess was observed in the "three-fr-a-quarter"
photograph gallery, posing
on the afterdeck of the canvas ship
"Krug Park," right next ot a painted
life preserver, having his picture
taken. Mr. Nash seemed to favor the

car and he's going to drive up to

what we started to say was that Mr.
Green seemed to be everywhere and
kept everything moving on schedule.

found her chief pleasure in doing the
dip-to-dcath on the roller coaster.
