PROSPEROUS CITY CAUSE
A Sure Way To
There is one sure way that has
never failed to remove dandruff at
once, and that is to dissolve it, then
you destroy it entirely. To do this,
just get about four ounces of plain,
common liquid arvon from any drug
store (this is all you will need), apply
it at night when retiring; use enough
to moisten the scalp and rub it in
jently with the finger tips.
By morning, most if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone,, and three or
Four more applications will completely
dissolve and entirely, destroy every
single sign and trace of it, no matter
how much dandruff you may have.
You will find all itching and digging
of the scalp will stop instantly, and
your hair will be fluffy, lustrous,
flossy, silky and sofc, and look and

Bills are being more promptly met
in Omaha today than they have ever
been in the life of the city.
This is shown by the records of the
office of the Associated Retailers of
Omaha. More people are living up to
the agreement entered into with the
retailer, which is usually to pay the
bill on or before the tenth day of the
month following the month in which
the purchase was made,
Few people realize the enormous
credit business the large stores are
doing, and what it means to have ac
counts drag for a period of months.
There are large department stores
here that have as much as $150,000 to
$200,000 in accounts standing on the
books all the time.
For the last few years the retailers
here, through the Associated Retailers
of Omaha, have been carrying on a
kind of campaign of education seek
ing to instill into the minds of their
customers the importance of meeting
accounts promptly when due.
The promptness with which bills
are met at present in Omaha is be
lieved by the retailers to be partly due
to this campaign, although the retail
ers are not slow to admit that it is
oartlv due to the generally prosper
ms condition of Nebraska at present
Value of Promptmess.
Secretary I. W. Metcalfe of the As.
sociated Retailers of Omaha, after
making a survey of the card index in
his office giving the credit standings
of the customers of the various stores
as they are reported to his office, said
"More people today realize the
vahie of individual credit rating than
ever before in the history of our or
ganization. More of the customers are
now living up to their agreements
with the retailer to pay by the tenth
of the month following the purchase.
The credit buyer formerly didn t real'
ize that by holding back money due
the retailer on accounts he was mak
ing the retailer pay interest on large
sums of money he is forced to borrow
to do business, and that thus the cus
tomer is directly increasing the store's
cost of doing business. . They now
seem to realize more fully their obli'

are getting. The retailers are really

Nothing discovered within recent years ac

reason for Its wonderful merit la that it
works in harmony with physiological laws.
Instead of hiding complexion defects, It re,
movea them. It actually takes off the aged,
faded, sallow, freckled or blotehy surface
skin, gently, gradually, eausing no Incon
venience. It Is Nature's way of renewing
complexions. When the natural process is
retarded because of deficient circulation or
nerve tone, mcreollced wax comes to the
rescue and hastens the akin shedding. The
new complexion which appears is a natural
one, youthful, healthy, exquisitely beautiful.
If you've never tried mercolised- wax. get an
ounce of It at thi drug store, use at night
like cold cream, waning it off In the morn

for wrinkled akin is to bathe the face In a

HS HAD WEIRD TRAVELS
The rear of an engine brought into
Omaha at midnight last evening a
young but experienced tourist in the
person of Merritt Williams, 13, son of
Thomas F. Williams, 4J43 North
Lowell avenue, Chicago, official of the
Vista Auto Lamp company. Juvenile
authorities found Merrit, all togged
out in the latest style, contentedly
eating a chicken pot pie (family style),
in the railroad station restaurant
The wanderer's .lory starts with the
tale of a boys' bicycle repair shop in
which Merritt was one of many man
agers. Chicago police suspected the
shop owners of stealing bicycle parts
to replenish their stock and Merritt
decided to leave his business in Chi
cago at once. Without money, the
boy set forth on his travels.
"I picked up Leonard Huck (he's
17), and we booked a trim out of
Chicago. Bdt some I. W. W.'s kicked
us off after we rode about thirty miles.
Leonard got off easy, but when I
tried to drop from the car, a Worker
stepped on my fingers and I had to
hold on until another hit him on the
Works on Fruit Truck.
The two boys finally "made" Mil
waukee, where they earned several
dollars on a fruit truck. By boxcar
they went to St. Francis, Wis., and by
blind baggage to New Butler and
Adams. Merritt got work in a res
taurant, saved hit money and bought
clothes. The tourists "hit" Minne
apolis and St. Paul, Worthington and
North Platte, doing odd jobs all
along the line1.
At North Platte, Merritt's chuin
got sick of the vagabond life and
went home. But Merritt kept right
on going. He earned $25 in that city
and bought another new outfit, the
one he was wearing when the police
here saw him. The young Ulysses
