On the Court House
The initials "E. O. R," carved by a
penknife on the marble coping sur
rounding the balcony on the fourth
floor of the court house, have piled a
flock of trouble on the carver.
Douglas county's court house is the
pride of the community and the cus

When the marble polisher at
tempted to wipe out these initials
scratched on the slab near the jury

TO BE A HUMMER
Beit of the Entire Country to
Be Exhibited in Omaha in
- . October. .
MANY BREEDERS TO COME
The hog is one of- America's great
Likewise, the vastness of the swine
industry can be grasped in a most
comprehensive way by the assembling
from the four winds the cream of the
leading porcine stock growers' pens.
Omaha is making a signal and un
disputed bid for leadership among the
hog exposition cities this year by
staging the National Swine show, the
dates of which are October 2 to 7,
That the show would attract the
country's purest-blooded, blue-ribbon
porkers was assured months ago. At
this time, with the national event but
a month away, the show is universally
recognized by hogmen, from size of
exhibits-, class and prominence of en
tries, etc., as the greatest exposition
by far ever attempted in the United
States which means the world.
Russell Back from East
One of the coming show's biggest
boosters, E. Z. Russell, associate edi
tor of the Twentieth Century Farmer
and superintendent of exhibits for the
event, has , returned from an eastern
trip, on the last leg of which he vis
ited the Iowa state fair at Des Moines
and got in touch with the swine sit
Mr. Russell's principal stop in the
east was at Detroit, where he attended
the annual meeting of the America
Veterinary association, - )
At the Des Moines fair, where is
held annually the biggest hog show
in the United States in connection
with a state fair, Mr. Russell talked
with and got assurance from Amer
ica's most prominent swine growers
that they would be at, the Omaha
show, either as exhibitors or as visi
tors. ... - 7
McFadden a Booster.
The Twentieth Century Farmer edi
tor met one of the show's super-enthusiastic
boosters in the person of
W. M. McFadden, president of the
National Swine Growers' association,
a man as prominent in swinedom as
Charlie Chaplin is in the movies.
Mr. McFadden im the last few
months has ascertained from personal
observation that the universal inter
est in the big fall show is increasing
day by day until it has become the
one absorbing topic of breeders from
the Pacific to the Atlantic roasts and
from the Gulf of Mexico to the Ca
nadian line. '
That the local show will stand in
a class by itself as far as importance
is concerned is attested to by the fact
that many breeders have cut the -state
fairs from their list this year, in order
to exhibit exclusively and make one
"grand splash" at the Omaha event.
One nationally-known Wisconsin
breeder alone will bring forty head
a carload of hogs to Omaha.
Pick of the Herds.
Visitors at the show will see the
pick of the fanciest Berkshire herds
m tne land, tne exniouur nius
breeders from' Washington to Mas
sachusetts and from Louisiana to
Wisconsin. ' ...
Officials of every state tair in ine
country held prior to tne nai onai
swine show will attend the local ex
hibition. When Mr. Russell returned from
his trip he found his desk piled high
with entries ana requcsis ioi no
vations. i .
For the five days' show prizes and
trnnhies aeeregating more than $10,-
000 will be offered. The argest num
ber of judges that ever officiated at a
swine snow in una
hand for the local exposition.
To Limit Speed of Large
. Trucks on favea sireeis
City Commissioner Kugel has in-
trnAr.A ,n ordinance for the regula
tion of large motor trucks over paved
streets and boulevards. The ordinance
will be discussed by the committee of
the whole next Monday morning,
when the maximum speed for these
large vehicles will be determine",

Be Careful in Using
Soap on Your Hair
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali, which is very
injurious, as it dries the scalp and
makes the hair brittle.
The best thing to use is just plain
mulsified cocoanut oil, for it is pure
and entirely greaseless. It's .very
cheap, and beats the most expensive
soaps or anything else all to pieces.
You can get this at any drug store,
and a few ounces will last the whole
family for months.
Simply moiaten the hair with water
and rub it in, about a teaspoonful is
all that is required, It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy lather,
cleanses thoroughly, and rinses out
easily. The hair dries quickly and
