Realize Old Adage, "All Work
and No Play," Applies to
Man as Well as Boy.
PLAY PART OF GENERAL
By A. R. GROH.
.Some time ago I was in the office
of a business man. A most business
like office it was and a most depress
On the wall were little mottoes,
"Du it now," "This is my busy day,"
and the like.
A motto in an office does no harm,
but this man had a dozen of them
and they were all reflections of him
self, a stem, unsmiling soldier in the
battle of business life. I admired his
stern will, but was sorry for the mis
direction uf his energies.
The strength on which he prides
himself is but the strength of the cave
man or the Koman centurion, a
strength that relies only on hard
muscles and iron nerves.
He has none of the qualities of a
real generat. A real general wins
victories rather by strategy and care
ful planning than by brute strength.
The roman general, Scipiu, by con
summate delays, defeated Hannibal
and his veteran troops. Sometimes
it is a bad rule to "Never put off
till tomorrow what you can do to
day." Too Busy for Story.
This man, at least during his busi
ness hours, has no time for the little
amenities of life. He would inform
you curtly that he is too busy to
listen to a funny story. That is a
part of his "efficiency" system. He
couldn't understand why Lincoln
would sometimes interrupt the pro
ceedings of his cabinet on some
weighty questiou to tell a humorous
story or to read a little from Artemus
He is a distorted product of the
modern movement for superefficiency,
which is really only nervousness, a
nervousness that becomes restive the
moment the fierce drive of work stops
for a moment.
Time is Money.
The man who, a century ago, fret
ted when he missed the weekly stage
coach, now fumes when he misses
the compartment in the revolving
"Time is money" nowadays and
money, of course, is the most desir
able thing in the world. When they
shall have secured enough of it, these
strenuous men vaguely dream, they
will retire and "enjoy life." But they
never do. One day the Messenger
knocks on the door. He takes no
heed of the mottoes on the wall. Ho
cares not for the "big" projects to be
put through. Time t isn't money to
Really great men in business don't
work this way. They have the
genius for gathering men about them
to do the details. They attend to
the managing and have plenty of
lime for golf and travel, the theater,
their families. They have time for
jest and jollity that leavens the work
of the day and makes the total ac
complishment greater. Andrew Car-

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 greasclcss. 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 moisten the hair with water
and rub it in, about a tcaspoonful is
all that is required. It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy lather,
cleanses thoroughly; ami rinses out
easily. The hair dries quickly and
evenly,' and is soft, fresh looking,
bright fluffy, wavy and easy to handle.
Besides, it loosens and takes out every
particle of dust, dirt and dandruff.
,Tf. King! !aj A
negie, while his great steel business
was in the building, used to go abroad
for months at a lime after he had
laid his business wires.
Quotes Poor Richard.
"He that hurricth at his task show
eth that the work is too great for
him," said Toor Richard.
.More real efficiency can be gained
by a little less so-called "efficiency,"
I am glad to add that the "efficient"
and depressing business -office I re
ferred to was not in Omaha. It was
in Philadelphia. They aren't all as
sleepy in Philadelphia as the joke
books would have you believe.
, Here in the west our business men
aren't the slaves if this false and
short-sighted "efficiency," They are
broad and good -humored. They lunch
leisurely. They "golf" frequently,
or have other diversions. They jest
while they put through big deals. In
short, they live while they work.

BMNMN IF TOO
Say glau of hot water with

waahea out poison.
If vou wake up with a bad taste,
bad breath anil tongue is coated; if
your head is dull or aching; if what
you eat sours and forms gas and acid
in stomach, or you are bilious, consti
pated, nervous, sallow and can't get
feeling just right, begin inside bath
ing. Drink before breakfast, a glass
of real hot water with a tcaspoonful
of limestone phosphate in it. This will
flush the poisons and toxins from
stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels
and cleanse, sweeten and purify the
entire alimentary tract. Do your in
side bathing immediately upon aris
ing in the morning to wash out of the
system all of the previous day's pois
onous waste, gases and sour bile be
fore putting more food into the stom
ach. To feel like young folks feel; like
you felt before your blood, nerves and
muscles became loaded with body im
purities, get from your pharmacist a
quarter pound of limestone phosphate,
which is inexpensive and almost taste
less, except for a sourish twinge,
which is not unpleasant.
Just as soap and hot water act on
the skin, cleansing, sweetening and
freshening, so hot water and lime
stone phosphate act on the stomach,
liver, kidneys and bowels. Men and
women who are usually constipated,
bilious- headachy, or have any stom
ach disorder, should begin this inside
bathing before breakfast. They are
assured they will beconvc real cranks
