When You Eeel Tired,
Ko Appetite, Headache.
(By W. M. GRANTIER. M. V.)
It your wile tells yon that you are
"grouchy" and out-of-sorts, be thank
ful for the suggestion, and set to work
to get your liver busy, for it is more
than likely that its inactivity is at the
bottom of your trouble. Don't blame
your liver for not doing its work! You
nave undoubtedly been giving it too
much to do. You mav have occasional
headaches, feel tired, no appetite, and
coated tongue, and this condition may
lead up to other things. At such times
you are the easiest prey for colds,
grip, or the disease germs of malaria,
typhoid, the deadly phthisis, or the
many ills which carry off so many of
My .advice Is, give up alcohol, tea
and coffee. If you must drink some-
thing with your meals let it be a cup
of hot water. Begin in the morning
with a pint of hot water with a half
lemon squeezed in it, if possibleand
. drink it a half hour or lessbefore
Take a . few minutes of bending

sionally, say, once a week, take a good
laxative, one that is entirely vege
table. A good one is that made up of
the extract of May-apple, vegetable
caloihel and jalap, and ean be had at
every drug store, for it has been sold
for nearly 60 years as Dr. Pierce's
Measant felleto. -
If you are occasionally troubled
with rheumatic pains or lumbago, pain
in the back, toes or muscles of the
body, this is due to uric acid stored
in the system. The liver and kidneys
ao not act properly. D or suob tk per
son, I advise taking Anuric (double
strength) three times daily for a week
or two. This Anuric throws out the
uric acid which accumulates, and if
taken occasionally will prevent or
cure rheumatism and gout. There is
no difficulty in obtaining Anuric at
any drug store. Advertisement.
Alkali Makes Soap
Bad For Washing Hair
Most soaps end prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali, which is very
injurious, as it ones tne scalp and
makes the hair brittle.
The best thing to use is just plain
mulsified cocoanut oil, for this is pure
and entirely greaseless. It's very
cheap and beats the most expensive
soaps or any thin e te 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 teaspoonful is
all that is required. It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy lather,
cleanses thoroughly and rinses out
easily. The hair dries quickly and
evenly and is soft, fresh looking,
bright, fluffy, wavy and easy to han
dle. Besides, it loosens and takes out
- every particle of dust, dirt and dand
ruff. Advertisement. ' v

Clear Blotchy Skin
Don't worry about blotches or other
skin; troubles. You can have a clear,
' clean complexion by using a little semo,
obtained at any drug store for 25c, or
extra large bottle at U'.OO.
Zemo easily removes afl traces of
pimples, black heads, blotches, eczema,
and ringworm and makes the skin clear
and heahhy Zemo is a clean, penetrat
ing, antiseptic liquid, neither sticky nor
greasy arid stains nothing. It is easily
applied and costs a mere trifle or each
application. It is always dependable.

Lincoln. Neb.. Mav 21. (Special.)
There are thousands of acres of
land in the Winnebago and Omaha
Indian reservation in Thurston county
which can be utilized for crops this
vear if the commissioner of Indian af
fairs will at once give permission to
the superintendent of those reserva
tions to let tne same out tor agnail
This is the message which came to
Governor Neville today from District
Judge Guy Graves of that district,
with information that most of the
land had one time been broken up
and could easily be cropped this year.
He advised that the commissioner of
Indian affairs cut out the red tape
methods hitherto practiced and at
once release the lands, for if there was
the usual delay there would be no
chance for a crop this year.
Governor Neville at once wired
Senator Hitchcock. Franklin K. Lane
and lie commissioner of Indian at-
fairs, Cato Sells, calling their atten
tion to the matter and urging quick
action. - - ,
