UDsON I'RLhMAN, national
great deal of information on scoutery in Omaha last week. He told
the aims of scoutery, requirements for organizing, what it expected
from its members and what members gain in return. Scout law de
mands so many "fine characteristics from its followers that Busy fires,
too, will be interested in knowing what they are, I am sure, possibly
to compare them with their own virtues or shortcomings. Here is the
Scout Law:
A Scout Is Trustworthy A Scout's
honor is to be trusted. If he were to
violate his honor by telling a lie, or
by cheating, or by not doing exactly
a given task, when trusted on his
honor, he may be directed to hand
over his Scout badge.
A Scout Is Loyal He is loyal to all
to whom loyalty is due; his Scout
leader, his .tonic and parents and
country. y
A Scout Is Helpful He must be
prepared at any time to save life, help
injured persons, and share the home
duties. He must do at least one good
turn to somebody every day.
A Scout Is Friendly He is a friend
to all and a brother to every other
A Scout Is Courteous He is polite
to all, especially to women, children,
old people and the weak and helpless.
Me must not take pay lor being help
ful or courteous. '
A Scout Is Kind He is a friend to
animals. He will not kill nor hurt
any living creature needlessly, but
will strive to save and protect all
harmless inc.
A Scout Is Obedient He obeys his
parents, scout master, patrol leader,

Lonor ano there lived a princess

It was said that the princess could

Every morning the little princess

A time came when the little princ

Auto Trip to Iowa. x '
By Virginia Wiles, Aged 10 Years,
Weeping Water, Neb. Red Side.
Four weeks ago we went to Tabor.
Ia.. about fifty miles from here, in
our automobile. We had a very fine
trip there. When we got to flatts
mouth we staved there about half an
hour. Then we drove down to the
Missouri river where we got on the
ferry and crossed over to the other
side. The boat went very slowly till
we got out in the middle ot tne river,
wnere tne current was swuter. tnen
we went inore slowly again as we
neared the landing on flie opposite
side. The ferry is large enough to
hold two cars and it really seems per
fectly safe. After, crossing the river
we started on our trip that took us
throueh Pacific Junction and Ulcn
wood and finally to TaBor. We were
verv haonv to see our .friends at
Tabor and were sorry that rain began
to fall and we had to start Home
sooner than we had planned. Our
trip home was not quite as pleasant,
as the road had become very muddy
for automobile traveling. I think we
shall go again sometime. I hope to
see my story in print.

A Scout Is Cheerful He smiles
whenever he can. His obedience to
orders is prompt and cheery. He
never shirks nor grumbles at hard
ships. A Scout Is Thrifty He does not
wantonly destroy property. He
works faithfully, wastes nothing, and
makes the best use of his opportun
ities. He saves his money so'that he
may pay his own way, be generous
to those in need, and ' helpful to
worthy objects. He may work for
pay. but must not receive tips for
courtesies or good tu.ns.
, A Scout Is Brave He has the
courage to face danger in spite of
fear and has to stand up for the right
against the coaxings of friends or the
jeers or- threats of enemies, and de
feat does not down him.
A Scout Is Clean He keeps clean
in body and thought, stands for clean
speech, clean sport, alean habits and
travels with a clean crowd.
A Scout Is Reverent He is rever
ent toward God. He is faithful in his
religious duties and respects the con-
viction of others in matters of custom
and religion.

Iron deficiency. The skin of anemic men
and women is pale. The flesh flabby. The
muscles lack tone; the brain fags and the
memory fails and often they become weak

of women, the roses go from their cheeks.

"Therefore, if you wish to preserve your

Once upon a time there were four

go and pick berries and not go in Mr.
Macreger's garden. Cottontail was a
naughty little rabbit. He went in Mr.
Macreger's garden first. He ate some
lettuce, then parsley and radishes.
Then Mr. Macreger saw the little rab
bit, but could not catch him. He got
caught in a gooseberry bush and his
coat got caught and he could not get

his mother gave him some bitter tea

Rescued From Indians.

Red Side.
Harry was a little boy. One day
he had an adventure. He was out
playing, when all at once he heard
a great noise. He looked up and saw
a great bunch of Indians at the vil
lage about half a mile away. Smoke
was coming up from every house and
the people running for their lives.
He thought the Indians were burning
the village so he ran as fast as his
little -legs could carr him to tile
next village 'to his uncle's house and
told him the Indians were comingl
His uncle tried to hold him, but he
ran on to all the houses and warned
the people of the Indians.
In about half an hour the Indians
did come, but they didn't find any
body there that they could take cap
tive. Instead they found a great
troop of soldiers, who drove them
back with such great slaughter that
they never came again.
The next morning as little Harry
was eating breakfast a package
came to him. He opened it with
trembling fingers and on opening it
he found a beautiful gold medal for
his brave deed (or such a little boy.
Harry wore the medal ail the time.
Everybody praised him for saving

Hallowe'en Party.
Leona Walter, Aged 11 Years.
Wahoo, Neb.
Blue Side.
It is quite late to be telling about
Hallowe'en, ,but as I have nothing
else to write just now I will tell you
what a good time I had at a party.
It was given by four girls. The
home where it was given was deco
rated with many things, such as bats,
cats, witches and pumpkins. The cats
and pumpkins were of all sizes from
small, ones to tall1 ones. The first
room we went into was the room
where they received guests. The

the secret of great strength and endurance
and filled his blood with iron before he went
into the affray, while many another haatgone
down in inglorious defeat simply for the
lack of iron."
Dr. Schuyler C. Jacques, another New
York physician, said: "I have never before
given out any medical information or ad
vice for publication, as I ordinarily do not
believe in it. But in the case of Nuxated
Iron I feel I would be remiss in my duty not

who wish quickly to increane their strength,
power and endurance will find it a most re
markable and wonderfully effective rem
edy." MOTE Nuxated Iron, which is prescribed
and recommended above by physicians in
such a great variety of cases, is not a pat-
mass. After mass she went to the
butcher shop to buy a new ham. She
was not satisfied with the looks of it,
so she had the butcher cut it in two.
The ham being all right, she had the
butcher connect the cuts. She handed
the ham to Mary, the maid. That af
ternoon she went for a walk and
came to an island along the road;
passing on she saw a beautiful dell;
then, deciding to take the car, she
went north to the car line, and dis
covered it was the wrong direction
so she returned to the south car line.
When she got off the car she found
little George waiting for her. In his
anxiety to meet her he dropped his
pen on the grourM. She handed the
pen to him and went on the way."
next room was where we played
games and next was the fortune tell
ing room.
We told lots of ghost stories.
There were peanuts hidden in every
room and so we had a peanut chase.
One of the boys won the prize, which
was a big cat's head filled with candy.
Next we had the peanut race. Only
three could race, those that were go
ing to race took a knife and carried
peanuts on them to the other end of
the room. The one who could carry
the most in five times got a prize,
the same as the ofher prize.
I was dressed like a ghost and so
were many others. There was only
two witches. If would take too long
to tell all the fun we had. 1 will
answer all letters received. This is
a true story.
Election at School.
By Lucile Boryzch, Aged 12 Years,
Farwell. Neb. Blue Side.
We were playing that we were to
elect on election day, too. In our
room we all elected Wilson except
Anna Olsen, who elected Hughes. The
dry amendment vote was 2o and the
wet amendment was 18.
We had some fun. I voted for Wil
son. I thinks he is a nice man. Wc"
take Current Events, that is why I
know a little about him. I hope he
will be elected.

About a week ago I received my

one of the best books 1 ever read and

again for it. If any of the other Busy
Bees do not know what they want to
read, I would advise them to read this
book, for I am sure they would en
joy it.

iron constituents are widely prescribed by
eminent physicians both in Europe and
America. Unlike the older inorganic iron
products it is easily assimilated, does not
injure the teeth, make them black, nor upset
the stomach, on the contrary, it is a most
potent remedy In nearly all forma of indi

confidence in nuxated iron that they offer
to forfeit $100.00 to any charitable institu
tion if they cannot take any man or woman
under CO who lacks iron and increase their
strength 200 per cent or over in four
weeks' time, provided they have no serious
organic trouble. They also offer to refund
your money if it does not at least double
your strength and endurance in ten days'
