Women How to Vote
On School Bonds
How, when, where and why women
should vote for the school board ws
told by Harley G. Moorhead, election
commissioner, to the social science
department of the Omaha Woman's
club Monday. 1 . .
Mr. Moorhead urged the women to
vote in the middle of. the morning
or middle of the afternoon, if pos
sible, not in the rush hours. "Vote
expeditiously,"- he pleaded for the
election officials, "since I predict the
greatest rush at the polling places
this year we have had for a long
Mr. Moorhead assured the women
that polling places were desirably
situated this year and that it was
the duty of women and men equally
to interest themselves in school af
fairs. "South Side women have shown no
tably greater interest in school board
affairs than Omaha women," he
said, relating humorous incidents
which occurred in the last South Side
election, when young girls put on
long skirts, so there would be no
question of their eligibility to vote.
Dr. William D. Phifer of Denver
gave a prohibition talk.
Omaha Gets Another
New Food Industry
A new cereal food industry has been
launched in Omaha, known as the
"Youth Era Industry." The concern
is located at 6105 South Twenty-first
street, where a factory and equipment
has been installed.
The new company provides a new
outlet for Nebraska's wheat, which
was the main reason for locating the
factory here. The story of the location
of -the factory here has considerable
in it to interest Nebraskans.
In 1902 Dr. M. A. Fairchild, after
forty-one years of practice, began
studying the food question. In Cali
fornia, in Canada and in Washington,
D. C, Dr. Fairchild labored for thir
teen years to find a perfect food.
Grain would not do because of the
starch. After much searching the doc
tor discovered a way to change the
starch in wheat to dextrine. The proc
ess was approved by the experts in
the government food department, and
in 1915 a factory was established in
Long Beach to make the food. Wheat
from Canada, Washington, Oregon
and other states was tried, but none
of these stood up on quality with Ne
braska wheat, so the doctor and asso
ciates came to Omaha to establish
their industry where they could get
the best wheat in the country direct
from the elevators.
In the near future Dr. Fairchild
plans to establish a training school for
instructions in health, on Eighteenth
street in Albright. Frederick A. Best,
manager of the Youth Era Industry,
reports that he has secured liberal
distribution for the product in
Saved Her Daughter's Life.
"Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and

vomited every few minutes and we
were unable to keep any medicine
down long enough to benefit her until
we gave her this remedy. The doctor
being at our house, I asked him what
he thought about our using it, and he
said as he was unable to do the child
any good I had better use it. The
second dose she kept down and in a
short time the bowels were checked
and she improved rapidly after that,"

United States National Bank
Estimate of Value of Soil
Yield for the Year.
SHOWING IS WONDERFUL
The corn crop for Nebraska for
1916 is about 113 per cent of the
normal crop, according to the annual
crop report just issued by the United
States National bank of Omaha, from
its exhaustive survey.
"Where we use the term normal,"
says the bulletin, "we mean the last
seven years average yield as estimated
by the Nebraska state reports and
thus 100 per cent represents the aver
age crop produced in bushels or tons
in Nebraska as determined by the
state reports for a preceding period
of seven years."
The wheat crop is estimated at
119 per cent of a normal crop: oats
about 140 per cent of normal; alfalfa
about 136 per cent of normal; wild
hay about 96 per cent of normal;
timothy and clover about normal.
Saunders county has the honor of
producing the most corn this year,
the estimate being 6,212,354 bushels.
Adams county produced the most
wheat, the estimate being 2,567,864.
Cedar claims the record for oats, the
estimate being 4,131,952. Buffalo
county gets the cup in the matter of
alfalfa, (he estimate being 121,700
tons. In other wild and tame hay,
Holt county leads, with an estimate of

Woman Burglars in
The Guise of Maids
Loot Many Houses
A trio of suspected woman-burglars
is being eagerly sought by the Omaha
police. ' " "'" '
Yesterday it developed that three
women are responsible for a. number
of house robberies, and still later it
appeared that these same women are
playing the "trusted-servant" game as
well. This came out when Detectives
John Unger and Ed Brinkman made
an investigation of the loss of nearly
$400 worth of diamonds and expensive
finery from the apartment ot Mrs. W.
V. Morse, of the West Farnam apart
ments, Thirty-eighth street and
A diamond worth $250 stolen from
Mrs. Morse was recovered in the
Brodkey pawnshop, where it had been
sold for $40. The detectives located
the stone when Mrs. Morse received
a special delivery letter, postmarked)
Umaha, and signed friend telling
where the stone could be found.
Simultaneously with the robbery, a
servant girl who. said her name was
Lucy Page, disappeared. A woman
who gave the name of Mary Blair, but
answering Miss Page's description,
sold the stone to Uroukey.
According to the authorities, the
vanished maid of the Morse house
hold fit6 the description of one of the
women who had been helping in the
burglary lobs, and has been getting
rid of the loot for her companions.
Lucy Page is now eagerly sought.
She is described as a tall, slim girl, of
pleasing personality and comely ap

Down-town republican headquarters
have been opened at 1607 Farnam
street, with W. B. Whitchorn in
charge. This location affords a con
venient meeting place where the can
didates may be met and literature re
ceived. A large oil painting of
Charles E. Hughes has been hung in
side and another picture of the nomi
nee adorns the front window. One
of the first callers was Senator Hitch
cock, wh,o was given several pamph
lets explaining why he should vote
for Mr. Hughes. The headquarters
will be open from morning until night
each day until election day. Demo
crats are welcome to call and imbibe
a little republican doctrine.
The latest political bon-mot going
the rounds of the state press relates to
Chris Gruenther, publicity manager
for Senator Hitchcock. Mr. Gruen
ther secures in advance of each visit
of the senator to a town a list of the
taxpayers to whom he sends letters
inviting them to the meeting, each
epistle having the appearance of a
personal appeal. After the meeting
follow-up letters are sent to the same
persons, thanking them for having at
tended and containing an expression
of appreciation that the senator had
the "pleasure" of grasping the person
addressed byhe hand. It happens
that many who receive the second let
ters did not attend the meetings,
hence the humor of the situation.

has been received at republican head

four bottles of Swamp-Root I was restored

Girls Find Cost of

The domestic science girls of the
University of Omaha find it impossi

with a reasonable amount of money.
Rice, flour, steak, beans, potatoes,
eggs and milk which arc used mostly
in combinations because of their
nutritive value have so advanced in
price that a meal can not he prepared

to pride themselves in furnishing diets
for normal persons at costs as low as
8 cents per day. But now the cheap
est food cannot be had for less than
20 cents per day.
As other examples the girls say
that two years ago they could furnish
a standard caloric diet of beefsteak
for 4.1 cents a day; an egg combination
for 49 cents and a milk diet for 26
cents, but now these figures would
have to be doubled in order to buy the
