How to Avoid Stomach Troubles.
Digestion begins in the mouth. Food
should be thoroughly masticated.
Your food should be suited to your
age and occupation. People of seden
'ary habits should eat little meat, but
should drink an abundance of water,
especially when they first get up in
the morning and between meals.
When you feel dull and stupid after
eating that shows that you have eaten
too much. The bowels sheuld be kept
regular. When needed take a dose of
Chamberlain's Tablets. They will im

RECORD WEEK IN
More Men Join U. S. Forces
Than During Any Previous
Period Since Call Issued,
TOTAL' IN ALL ARMS 683
OMAHA'S MUSTER ROLL.
Army 40 964
Navy 24 408
National Guard 7 281
Marine Corps 0 34
Totals 71 ,' 1,687
More recruits enlisted here last
week than in any previous week since
the call for volunteer,.
Total for the week was 683 in all
branches, making the grand total 1,687
since the call.
The record was established in spite
of the marked falling off in enlist
ments Friday and Saturday. Friday
brought in only eighty-three and Sat
urday only seventy-one. Other recent
days totals were well above 100.
Bad Weather Blamed.
Bad weather is partially blamed by
Lieutenant Waddell of the navy for
poor results the last two days. Na
tional Guard recruiting in some towns,
before regular army recruiting began
efforts there, is given by Captain Mc
Kinley as the reason why his men
failed to find recruits at Clarinda, la.,
and some other towns.
But at Ogallala, Neb., and one or
two other places lack of patriotism is
said to account for the dearth of vol
unteers. Quartermaster Barrett of the
navy reported that he left Ogallala
without results after four hours work
Fourth Practically Full.
The Fourth Nebraska National
Guard is now practically full. 'Both
the regular army and the navy will be
full by the first week in May, accord
ing to estimates. Then recruiting ac
tivity will be turned to raising 500,000
In the meantime volunteers for the
army are coming in faster than for
any other branch, largely because
lads can now enlist for the duration
of the war.
"Last chance now; the navy will be
full by May 5," is the new navy re
cruiting slogan. By that date, it is
expected that the present navy com
plement will be met and recruiting
efforts for that branch will be reduced
to filling a few vacancies, caused by
expirations of enlistment periods, un
less a larger navy complement is then
Lou Goldsmith to Operate
Garage on Harney Street
Contract and lease for the erection
of a modern one-story fireproof gar
age building, 81 by 132 feet, on the
north side of Harney street just west
of Turner boulevard, has been nego
tiated by the Armstrong-Walsh com
pany. John C. Barnard owns the ground
and will erect the building. Lou A.
Goldsmith, well-known Omaha busi
ness man, is the lessee. He will oper
ate a storage garage to be known as

the building and it is expected the
structure will be completed by July 1.
This marks another step westward
on Harney street. At the present time
there are no garages on the street
further west than the new Cadillac
sales room and garage, which is just
west of Park avenue.
Will Open Bids for Omaha
Athletic Club Home This Week
Contractors' bids on the new $500,
000 Athletic club for Omaha, to be
erected on the north side of Doug
las street between Seventeenth and
Eighteenth streets, will be opened
this week, probably April 26. April
24 was originally scheduled as open
ing day, but the time has been ex
tended, Secretary Wharton said, be
cause of inability of some of the build
ing committee to meet earlier.
The contract will be let as soon
after bids are opened as the building
committee can compile and analyze
the bids. '
George Brandeis, W. B. T. Belt and
W. A. Fraser are the building com
mittee. American Flag of 1776
Decorates Shop Window
A strange looking flag is attracting
much attention in the window of a
haberdashery shop at Nineteenth and
Farnam streets. It is a fac simile of
the flag of the United Colonies, first
raised over General Washington's
headquarters at Cambridge, Mass., in
1776, before the Betsy Ross flag was
adopted. The flag has the thirteen
stripes, but in place of the blue field
and white stars are the crosses of St.
George and St. Andrew superimposed.
Commercial High Pupil
Enlists as Radio Operator
Glenn Bright, 17, student at Com
mercial High, and patrol leader of
Troop 9, Omaha Boy Scouts, applied
Saturday to enlist in the naval re
serve wireless operators' corps. His
parents, Mr. and Mrs. George D.
Bright, 2504 Bristol street, accompa
nied him to the recruiting station and
gave their consent to his joining.
"I guess the navy is a good place
for a lad, and I'm proud my boy is
volunteering to serve his country,"
the father said.
Two Brothers Join Army
And Three Enlist in Navy
Twin brothers enlisted in the army
here Saturday. They are Ernest J.
and Francis G. Hartman, 18, of Heb

cause Francis wanted to. They said
they were going to stick together
through four years of service, if the
authorities would let them.

RUSS NEED SHELLS,
MONEY, JAIL STOCK
Foreign Minister Says U. S.
Can Aid His Government Most
by Supplying These.
WILL HELP DEFEAT KAISER
Petrograd (Via London), April 22.
Money, ammunition and railway
rolling stock are the primary neces
sities for which Russia now is turning
"If America can help supply us
with these," said Paul N. Milukoff,
the Russian foreign minister, "it
will not only have added greatly to
the services it already has extended
to the allies, but will materially help
Russia to defeat Germany on the
Lack of Transportation.
"Russia has been crippled during
the entire war by lack of adequate
facilities for transportation. If the
United States can send us rolling
stock it will immediately help us to
mobilize the resources of the country
to their full efficiency.
"If, in addition to this, she ran help
protect the trade routes between
America and Russia and expedite the
sending of ammunition to Archangel
and Vladivostok, it will be another
valuable service rendered.
"The new loan which America is
to make to Russia already is under
discussion and although not definitely
arranged, it promises to be according
to the most satisfactory terms. We
are grateful for this. Other means
of assistance 1 regard as not quite so
"We have all the men we need and
expeditionary forces had better be
sent to other fronts, although the
presence of a small military mission
to symbolize the union between Rus
sia and America against the common
foe would be most appropriate."
Mr. Milukoff says the political situa
tion in Russia has improved greatly
and labor troubles are disappearing.
No Need for Fear.
The Russian foreign minister al
luded to the possibility of a descent
upon Petrograd by thS, German army,
'The Germans undoubtedly are
making plans for some kind of a
move on the northern front, but I
don't believe for a moment in yield
ing to the panicky belief that the Ger
mans will reach Petrograd."

Omaha Manufacturers Will Look
Closer to the Cost of Production
Price of Saw Material and
Labor Both Compel Closer
Watch on Affairs.
LAUNDRYMEN PAYING MORE
Manufacturers in Omaha will pay
more attention to cost finding now
than they ever did before. They arc
talking this more and more as the
cost of raw material and the cost of
production rises. Too little attention
has heen paid, manufacturers now
say, to the cost in various depart
ments of the factories, and they rea
lize now that if they arc to meet
the increased cost of production with
out constantly raising the price of
their product, they must do it by
economy ana etlkiency.
1 The laundrymcn in their slate con
vention at the Henshaw hotel took
the lead in this cost finding discus
sion, Laundrymen are counted among
the manufacturers. They hope to
practice greater economy.
Not to Increase Coat of Service.
Their president announced that the
laundrymen have i.o intention of in
creasing the rates of their service,
though they are aware that the cost
of raw materials has increased from
20 to 100 per cent since their last in
crease in rates went into effect in
October. If efficiency in work and
economy in management is to over
come this divergence in cost of. ma
terials, it is said, It will mean that

the lack of efficiency and economy of
management has been amazing.
The president of the laundrymen s
association gave some figures to show
the incresse in cost of necessary ma

These increases are: Soap, 50;

Besides this laundrymen say they
do not intend to raise their rates
again, but they do intend soon to raise

difference in efficiency and economy.
More Attention to Cost System.
Not only the laundries, but other
lines of manufacture in Omaha and
Nebraska are paying more and more
attention to cost systems and efficient
Fred S. Knapp, president of the
Omaha Box company, recently re
turned from New Orleans, where he
studied mill and factory conditions,
while he was scouting to buy lumber.
He found that factory hands there
receive as low as 40 cents a day. He
was amazed to think he was com
peting for business with factories that
could hire help so cheap. The cheap
est hands in the box factories here get
$1.40 to $1.60.
Mr. Knapp said there was no cause
to fear competition from concerns of
this kind, because of lack of efficiency
and economic management, which is
manifest throughout part of the south.
Nebraska and Iowa box factories
and cooperage concerns also have to
face the problem of advanced cost of
materials, for Mr. Knapp said he is
now paying $22 a 1,000 feet for 1x4,
