The Health Habit
(By Dr. L. C. Bowers.)
The late Elbert Hubbard once said:
"Most people go through life on a
short allowance of good air and oxy
' gen and too much food. Life is com
bustion. The digestive tract is the
boiler. The value of exercise in the
open air lies in the fact of getting a
goodly draft of oxygen through your
system, and this forced draft is both
eliminating refuse and" burning up
Breathe deeply when in the open
air. Sleep in a room with windows
open wide. Drink six or eight glasses
of pure water daily, and keep well.
But if one has been shut up within
doors during the cold winter months,
has eaten and drunk things which he
should, not; if he or she has over
worked in stale air, that person needs
a general tonic and housecleaning.
Especially is this so at this time of tle
year. For a tonic that will freshen
up the blood, clean the digestive tra-t
and put new force and vim into you,"
I know of nothing better than an al
terative extract with glycerine, made
from Golden Seal root, Oregon Grape
root, Blood root, Stone root and
Queen's root and it contains no al
cohol or narcotic, so is perfectly safe
This tonic has been sold for nearly
fifty years in the form of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. It can
be had now in tablet as well as liquid
form at most drug stores.
When your kidneys feel like lumps
ot lead, when your back hurts or the
urine is cloudy, full of sediment, or
you are obliged to seek relief two or
three times during the night, when
you suffer with sick headache, or diz
zy, nervous spells, acid stomach.
you have rheumatism when the
weather is bad, ask your druggist for
Anuric, double strength. 1 have
found in practice that Anuric is more
potent than lithia, and in most cases
it will dissolve the uric acid as hot
water does sugar. Advertisement.

Alkali Makes Soap
Bad For Washing 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
mulsificd cocoanut oil, for this is pure
and entirely greaseless. It's very
cheap, and beats the most expensive
soaps or anything else ill 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 teaspoonful is
all that is required. It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy latfier,

easily. The hair dries quickly and

Car Men Threaten

The action was decided at a meeting
of the newly organized union last

motormen and conductors in the
The traction company, prior to the
present ultimatum, has declared it will
stand pat against the demanded rec
ognition. For three weeks the company has
been breaking in new men in antici
pation of the strike, which has been
threatening ever since a move was
started to form the union.
The company says that every effort
will be made to run the full quota of
cars on the main lines.
Traction company officials look for
fifty or more of the men not in the
union to walk out in sympathy. The
union demand calls for reinstatement
of union leaders, said to have been
discharged by the company; an in

has agreed to make in case it wins its

Its Patriotic Reputation
Coleridge, Neb., is showing lots of
patriotism in the war. Six hundred
people attended a rally there Mon
day night, and twenty-seven lads
volunteered for war service, President
Guy Briggs of the Coleridge Com

enter a National Guard company or
else are waiting a few days before
coming here to formally enlist in the
army or navy.

Clean Blotchy Shin
Don't worry about blotches or other
skin troubles. You can have a dear,
clean complexion by using a little zemo,
obtained at any drug store for 25c, or
extra large bottle at $1.00.
Zemo easily removes all traces of
pimples, black heads, blotches, eczema,
and ringworm and makes the skin clear
and healthy. Zemo is a clean, penetrat
ing, antiseptic liquid, neither sticky nor
greasy and stains nothing. It is easily
applied and costs a mere trifle for each
application. It is always dependable.

Nebraska Will Do Its "Bit;"
What Is Expected of Farms
Nebraska farmers are mobilized to do a double duly.
First of all, they will do their "bit" in preparing to feed a hungry
Second, they will retrieve the disaster that fell on the winter wheat
In 1916 the principal crops of the state were:
Acreage. ' Yield.
Corn 6,740,803 190,070,449
Winter wheat 3,063,756 65,365,691
Spring wheat 246,557 3,407,890
Oat. 2,174,236 83,791,558
Alfalfa 1,127,642 3,412,465
Wild hay 2,093.192 2,454,930
Tame hay 159,410 332,612
Potatoes 74,796 5,922,279
Alfalfa and hays in tons; others in bushels.
Sixty per cent of the winter wheat crop of this year is beyond hope.
A larger acreage than usual had been planted, and the yield now expected
will be in the neighborhood of 25,000,000 bushels.
This loss will be made up by increased planting of corn and oats and
to some extent by added acreage of spring wheat. Barley and rye wilt
yield as usual, hut they are listed among the minor crops of the
state. However, this is a year when everything counts.
More potatoes than 'ever will he raised, and an increase of at least 50
per cent is expected. This will bring the potato crop up to the neighbor
hood of 9,000,000 bushels.
Farmers are being urged to give especial attention to corn. If they
increase the yield but 25 per cent over that of last year, which was not a
bumper crop, it means 250,000,000 bushels of corn.
Half of Nebraska's arable land was idle last year.
Not an acre should be allowed to remain unproductive this year.
