If you want a clear head and good
digestion you must not let your
bowels become clogged with poison

the case when you become consti

should keep your bowels regular.
When that fails you should take

BIRD MASQUE IS
Outdoor Performance Given
Under Auspices of Welfare
Division of National League
for Woman's Service.

where large - leaved vines twined

him his rays sparkling and shimmer

western slope of the grassy arena
Omaha's nature lovers gathered en
masse to imbibe the spirit of the
woods through the medium of Mrs.
Myron I.earned's sympathetic bird
masque, "The Spirit of Walden
The simple outdoor performance
was given under the auspices of Miss
Arabel Kimball's detachment of the
social and welfare division of the
National League for Woman's Service.
Its proceeds were devoted to the
work of the Red Cross and the Na
tional League for Woman's Service.
Mrs. Lowrie Childs, head of the so
cial and welfare division, and Miss
Kimball were the executive directors,
who having set all the machinery in
motion and chosen that wooded spot
in Hanscom park as the setifing, arc in
a large n easure responsible for the
success of the masque. They were
aided substantially by Miss Mary
Irene Wallace, wlia directed the char
acters, by the daffcing teachers who
trained the little dancers of the forest,
and by the members of the National
League who helped in the sale of
tickets and who cared for the me
chanical details of the masque. To the
author, Mrs. Myron Learned, all
credit is due for the lightsome con
ception of living things of the forest,
which the characters were able to present.
When the crowds had gathered on
the western slonc, suddenly from
somewhere in the woods sounded the
herald's call to the masque, or reveille,
blown by Trumpeter Otto Rogers of
Company B, Fourth Infantry, Ne
braska National Guard. That was the
signal for the wakening of the flowers
and from that time the spirit of na

which Henry Cox drew from the
woodland warblers as they sang to
him in their native haunts, lent an ef

There, with the mellow sunlight burn

thither, while warm breezes caressed
and flirted with their filmy draperies.

none the less noteworthy. The fair

they were numerous. The tiny vege
tables, the carrots and mv cab

carried back to Chicago with him,
were odd little creatures. Two small
groups of dancers, the little yellow
warblers, garbed all in yellow, and
the pipers clothed in soft billows of
orchid shade, were especially beau
tiful. Little Virginia Uoham. who
danced "To a Wild Rose," and Elda
Beeson, who followed with another
solo dance before the tiny chorus of
flowers awoke, were as graceful and
perfect in interpretation as two lit

tion and expression and were well
supported by all the little bluebirds,
tanagers, woodpeckers, robins and

nir programs were one of the pretty
features of the event. Society girls
and young matrons in Red Cross

benefit alfair George Mclntyie, at

Lactonade is the achievement of years of laboratory research and scientific ex
periments combined with practical experience. Medical scientists have been advocating
lactic acid preparations as a valuable food auxiliary for years and for this reason we
have put all our energies, theoretical, practical as well as financial ones to the task of per
fecting; a genuine, wholesome and palatable beverage. Lactonade is the result of years
of study to combine the health-dealing properties of milk with the most refreshing and
pleasing taste. Lactonade is a healthful, sparkling, effervescent beverage, which, be
sides being a cooling drink, is the most beneficial to the human body. Ask your family
physician. The Wahl-Henius Research Laboratory of 'Chicago reports as follows:
"We herewith beg to submit our report on the sample of Lactonade received from

Following are a few opinions of the World's most celebrated scientists.
From "The Bacillus of Long Life," London M. Douglas,
New York and London, Putnam's Sons, 1911.
"The human organism is by no means perfect; we have within us many defective parts
and some organs whose working seems to be against the welfare of economy. It has now been
clearly shown that one of the chief of these is the large intestine. There can be no doubt as to "
the damage which it frequently inflicts on the system, and, thanks to the researches of Prof.
Metchnikoff and other investigators, we seem to be in possession of a natural remedy which
is sufficient to deal with the evils it produces."
From "The Prolongation of Life," Elic Metchnikoff,
"The Utility of Lactic Microbes," same author,
Century Magazine, November, 1909.
"Metchnikoff, the director of the Pasteur Institute in Paris, gave as his opinion that senil
ity was partly caused by auto-intoxication or by poison derived from putrefactive micro-organisms
which inhabit the digestive tract."
"It is some years since I proposed to comb it intestinal putrefaction and its injurious con
sequences by means of lactic ferments. I thought the acidity produced by such microbes would
be much more effective in preventing the germination of putrefying microbes than the small
quantities of acid produced by the bacillus coli. To make sure of the result I chose the lactic
microbe, which is the strongest as an acid producer. It is found in the Yoghurst, which orig
inates in Bulgaria. The action of Keffier in preventing intestinal putrefaction depends on the
lactic acid bacillus which it contains. The fact that so many races make sour milk and use it
copiously in abundance is an excellent testimony of its usefulness. In Servia, Bulgaria and
Roumania there were five thousand centenarians living in 1896, and it seems fairly certain
that the sole reason why people in these districts live to such great ages is because of their mode
of living and the fact that they live very largely on soured milk. It is worth while noting that
lactic acid is the acidifying and, germ destroying' agent in
