6 A THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE:" MAY 27,' 1917. UNCLE SAM PAYS SOLDIM HIGHEST Aen Who Go to the Front for United States Oet More Money Than Any Others. By A. R. GROH. Uncle Sam's soldiers, a week or two igo, received a 100 per cent in crease in their pay. They were "raised" from $15 a month, to $30 a month. A private soldier in our army now receives $360 a year. He is, there fore, by far the best paid soldier in the world. Here is '.he pay that a private sol dier gets in other countries: Great Britain, $89 a year; France, $20 a year; Germany, $38 a year; Italy, $70 a year. In Turkey a private soldier gets ill a year; in Austria-nungary and Taoan he sets $8 .a year, and in Russia he gets just $4 for a year's service. A private soldier in our armjr gets a little more pay than a captain in the Russian army, tit gets almost as much as a colonel in the Russian ' army, the colonel's salary being $398 a year, linese figures, oi course, are all reduced from pounds, shillings, francs, lira, roubles and jnarks to dol lars). In addition to the money pay sol diers receive Quarters, clothing, ra tions and medical attendance in all armies. Mounted officers -receive al lowancei for horse and equipment , , Keep Books on Pay. In European armies the allowances ' under different (circumstances are so numerous that books are required to cover mem. in kussu, ior instance, four volumes are required , to deal with the subieft of pay. In England additional pay is given for foreign service, for command, for armament, for fuel, lights, servants, mess, official entertainments, etc. In France additional pay if given according to the number of children the soldier has, for prison duty, for being stationed in Paris (because of the higher cost of living). Pay of officers' varies greatly m the ditterent countries, ine annual sal ary of a colonel in the various coun . tries is as follows: United States, $4,000; Great Britain, $2,098; France, $1,744: Germany, $2,162; Russia, $398; Austria-Hungary,' $1,440;. Japan, $1,470; Italy, $1,520; Spam, $1,450; ,4 max, pi,tfvT. , : Goes With the Pay. Officers' allowances and perquisites are extremely varied in the different countries. The -United' States has the only really democratic army in the world. Here a man of any birth or station may become an officer. In England officers are drawn (in ordinary times, at least) from the upper or wealthier classes. It is not presumed that their salaries are sufficient to support them. In Germany an officer, before being E emitted to marry, must show that e or his wife has sufficient private income to maintain them according to their position." . " A private soldier in our army also receives a fixed increase of pay for ach-re-enustment ud to tne sevemn. ''Aftef thirty years' Service he may rej tire, with S per cent of his pay and : allowances for the rest of his days. Conservation Meet the Best ' Ever, Prof. Condra Says "The conservation meet surpassed 'all our expectations and was the greatest ever," Prof. G. E, Condra, secretary of state conservation and welfare commission said today. "We are greatly obliged to the peo ple of the state tor the interest they took in the affair. The people have been true and loyal." ' Prof. Condra said that the split In the meeting was only a trivial matter after all. "Everybody was working for the common cause and in the cud we all pulled together." , ' Indian Gets Sixty Days and Asks Judge to Make it a Year; He Does i. Omaha War News Joe Tebo, a half-breed Indian, after being sentenced to sixty days in the Douglas county jail by Federal Judge Pollock for introducing liquor on the Indian reservation, tip-toed up to the judge's desk and asked to be sentenced to a year instead. This almost unbelievable thing happened in- federal court. Judge Pollock had- just sentenced William Snow to a year and a day in the fed eral prison at Leavenworth, Kan., for selling liquor to Indians. He told Snow, who is sick, that he would have good care there and, in fact, painted such a pleasitig picture of prison life King Ak Issues a Call for Men Who Will Do the Work A new stunt, a regular hair raiser, is promised by the Ak-Sar-Ben man agement for the big show, the first of fifteen to be given on successive Mon day nights at "the Den," at Twen tieth and Burdette, Monday night, June 4. Gus Renze will not disclose what the stunt Is to be, but declares it to be the best ever. Rehearsal for the show Mondav. May 28, requires forty more volun teers, bright, hustling fellows, for a working crew. It will be a full re hearsal of crew as well as of the chorus. This show is to entertain the Ne braska Dental association. Every man in Omaha who wishes to see the show and those that follow should fet a membership button before June , Members can take as free guests as many visitors who are not Omaha residents as they may wish. Red Cross Campaign Raises $40,000 and 28,000 Members The ' Red Cross membership and educational campaign committee is much gratified with the results of last week's campaign. More than $40,000 was raised and over 28,000 members obtained. Although- the drive for membership is practically at an end, the commit tee urges that every new Red Cross member obtain one . or more addi tional signers. ; The committee reoorts that no sec tion of the country has shown as much patriotism in the great move ment as Omaha. The $40,000 raised Is the same amount as the American Red Cross gave to Omaha at the time of the toronado. Commercial Club Wants Dispensary Continued : Dr. B. W. Christie is made chair man of a social committee of the Commercial club to confer with city authorities as to the best method of financing the free dental dispensary it) Omaha, .in order that this institu tion may be kept' going in the future as it has been during the last year,' Mrs. E. W. Nash made the request of the city health and hospitals commit tee of the Commercial club that some assistance be given, and the appoint ment of Dr. Christie followed. that it aroused a desire in Tebo to go, too. , He exnlained to the judge that he is not in good health. The judge or dered him examined and found that his health is poor. He then consented to send him to Leavenworth for a year instead of to the Douglas county jail. "A year and a day" is the mini mum sentence, under which federal prisoners are admitted to the federal prison. For shorter sentences they are sent to county jails. Men who have served "time" in both usually prefer a year in the federal prison to a few months in the average county jail. A splendid hospital is part of me equipment at ine i-eavenwonn prison. Drive for Comfort Kit Fund Sets the Workers Over $1,000 More than $1,000 has been reported to the "comfort kit" headquarters in the Kennedy building by Saturday evening and more was coming in all the time. Mrs. Henry Doorley; who under Mrs. J. T. Stewart 2d, was in charge of the $25 subscriptions, re ceived twenty from the following men: John C. Wharton, Conrad Young, ( N.

Swobe at the Woodmen of the World building, $58, and Mrs. John Lionberger $49 in Dundee. Little Jane Stewart, who solicited at the Blackstone, received $25, and Sam Carlisle and Louis Metz. two Boy Scouts, received $15 at the Grain Ex change. Bankers Slow to Organize For Finance Production Though the Conservation congress in Omaha last week recommended among other things that the bankers of the state organize to finance pro duction, banks in Omaha have done nothing special along this line. Local bankers say they understood this rec ommendation to have particular refer ence to the bankers out in the state, and these are arranging to extend loans wherever possible to farmers and others who will use the money in a productive way. The Federal Land bank of Omaha comes in for particularly good serv ice along this line, since the law re quires that it make no loans except to actual farmers, for actual produc tion on the farms, or for paying off mortgages on the farms. Women's Clubs of State Are to Meet in Omaha Omaha will entertain the 1917 con vention of the Nebraska Federation of Women s clubs-the last week in Oc tober. Several hundred clubwomen will attend. The time and place for the meeting was set at a meeting of state chairmen and the program com mittee held in Lincoln Saturday. New Carrier System at Beddeo's Is Successful The Beddeo Clothing company, 1417 Douglas street, installed a new cash carrier system which had its tryout yesterday and proved very sue- cesslul. It consists of metal boxes carried on an endless rooe nroDelled by elec tric motor. There are four stations, at the ladies suit department, alter, atnon department, delivery depart ment and cashier's office. "It is a great success," said Mr. Beddeo. "We have been almost swamped with business on Saturdays. We had to carry people up by ele vator to the cashier's office and then down again. Under the new system they make payments on the first floor and inside of ten or fifteen minutes the carrier system has carried the cash to the cashier and come back again." Sues for $5,000 Damages; Jury Awards Him 1 Cent Hyman Friede, who sued the Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Railway c impany for $5,000, was awarded damages of 1 cent by a jury in law court. Judge J. roup presiding. He brought suit as a result of an al leged assault made upon him by a street car conductor on the Cuming street line December 23. 1916. Judge Troup instructed the jury that damages by way ot compensa tion only for injuries sustained are oermissibir. , He said "punitive damages, that is, damages by way of punishment of defendant tor alleged wrongtui acts, ..... -. nl1A...nkl.

Wheat sold at $2.84(32.85, un changed from Friday, and while there were no sales of corn, prices were down a fraction, the offerings being made at $1.581.59. Oats were a cent off and sold at 64'i65 cents a bushel. A Pair of Pro nil. "Ann. Mid the old man, "I wish you wouldn't wear your hair quite so Ions." "Got to have It Ions, dad.

I Louisville Courier Journal. e I Freckles and Blotches Are Easily Peeled Off If you. are bothered with any cutaneous blemish, it's a poor plan to use paint. powder, or anything- else to cover It up. Too often this only emphasises the defect. Besides, It's much easier to remove the I dtsflaurement with ordinary mercollsed wax. Applied nightly, the wax will gradu- lly remove freckles, pimples, moth oatchea. liver spots, sallowness. red blotches or any surface eruption. The affected cuticle Is absorbed, a little each day, until the clear, soft, youthful and beautiful skin beneath Is brought wholly to view. Aek the drurgfst for one ounce of mercollsed wax and use this like you use cold cream. Remove In morning with soap and water. Many who have tried this simple, harmless treatment report astonishing results. If troubled with wrinkles Or furrows. a wash lotion made by dissolving an ounce or powdered saxonta in a nair pine or witch I hassl, will prove wonderfully effective.

There were no enlistments to the Kebraska- National Guard Friday or Saturday forenoon, and but fifteen for the week. In explaining the reasons for the. lack of enlistments Major Todd said: "The people don't realize the seri ousness of this war. We are too busy, things are going too smoothly for the people to realize the serious ness of what we are up against. It isn't a lack of patriotism, but lack of knowledge. "One reason why we are not get ting as many, recruits as the regular army is that it has many agent trav eling and soliciting for recruits. Post masters are being paid $5 for every recruit th.v inrltirn in Inln "There is an advantage to men en listing in the Guard because they as sociate witn home friends, whereas in the army they are mixed with strangers. Then again, we recruit only for the infantry. The army 'offers applicants a greater varied service to choose from," , Thomas Graham of the United States National bank and Hugh Graham of the M. E. Smith company, brother of Miss Mabel Graham, who is a teacher in the Franklin school, nave enlisted in the navy. Another brother, George Graham, expects to enlist soon. Six navy recruits hive been given temporary employment in Omaha as ,elerks and distributors of advertising, .through the employment agency con ducted by EnsigS) Rayley. There is almost no sickness among guardsmen at Fort Crook, according to Major Birkner. He reports that Companies A, B and C today finished their second innoculation against ty phoid and that the headquarters, the .machine and the supply companies received their third and last innocula tion Friday. Only the first innocula tion caused illness or soreness.
