mum war strength. Other, battalions
of the Seventh are beine filled all
over the state, and as soon as the
whole regiment is hus filled and mus
tered in it will be ready for the draft
into federal service.
"This will not call for a new act of
congress," said Major Ray Abbott
The Seventh can be taken in as were
the Fifth andSixth under the author
ity of an act passed July, 1915. This
gave the president uthority to ac
cept the National Guard regiments
from the , governors of states.
wnen we wnpie regiment is re
cruited to ; minimum war strength,
which means Seventy-five to a com
pany, the governor may notify the
president of the United States he has
a regiment ready. The president then
makes formal acceptance of the regi

Eleven men from the M. E. Smith
company are enlisted, in the Lucky
Company F of the Seventh National
Guard -Reserve is the'Irish company.
"Most of the men in Company F are
Irish." said Captain McGlone. "We
are proud of being an Irish company."
This company now has ninety-six men
n its roll. , .
Only five men are left now from the
star Stag base ball team, the rest be
ing in the army and navy. Last Fri
day night the five had a supper, where
they talked over old times and told
news of the members gone to war. It
is hinted these five, oo, may answer
the call ere long.

The Canadian KiltiesSbah'd, which
is to play in Omaha during Ak-Sar-Tien
week, passed through Council
Bluffs Sunday night at 11:50. They
were met by Sergeant Edney of the
British recruiting office and complet
ed their plans for next week, when
their fifes and bag pipes will call the
Britishers, hereabouts to arms. They
' have come direct from Canada to
play in Omaha this fall. As soon as
they are recovered sufficiently from
wounds received at the front they will
go back to France to fight again, t
Sergeant Edney of the British re
cruiting office was doing a pipe dance
Monday mornjng. The cause of his
' elation was the rush on the recruiting
'office by Britishers anxious to get into
the fight over in Europe. ,
; When the office opened at 9 o'clock
six sturdy Britishers were already on
hand to volunteer. They came from
all over Nebraska, three from their
ranches, 1 the rest from Offices and
shops. . , .-.v.. - : i . '.
William A. Nicholas, a rancher from
Custer, county, said he thought-it
was about time he was getting Into
harness, as he bad thirty-two brothers
and cousins in the British army and
he didn't want to be the only slacker
in the family. , Some of his relatives
have been killed, tomt wounded, and
hr wants to avenge them by putting
few Germans out of the way.

children,: but has ample means for
their support As soon , as he read

Bingham's relatives, an autopsy per

All this was done surreptitiously
the statement declares, the secret
closely guarded until the object was
accomplished, and adds: "It belongs
to the public to -form its own opinion
of this ghastly drama." - !

That this codicil would be con
tested has been indicated.
Dr. Charles T. . Nesbitt, county
health officer, acknowledged today
that he had issued a permit for the
exhumation of the body of Mrs. Rob

that the reason he had withheld in
formation was that he had been told
by those seeking the permit that they
thought a crime had been committed.
REPORTS INDICATE V
BUMPER CORN. CROP
Winter Wheat Seeding, Pro
gressing Bapidly, With In
creased Acreage ; Sugar '
Beets Above Average.
The crop report of the Burlington
road for the week ending last Satur
day and covering all of Nebraska,
carries with it the real essence of
optimism. Here is what it says with
reference to the outlook for a bumper
crop of corn: , 1
Big Crop ill East V
"On the three eastern divisions the
fairly high temperature has crowded
the late corn along and prospects
each day are Better for a' big yield.
There has been no frost and a consid
erable acreage each day is getting
past the danger from frost Indica
tions are that on the three eastern
divisions the crop will be excellent."
The three eastern divisions of the
Burlington railroad cover about all of
the corn belt of Nebraska, take in a
goodly portion of Kansas and extend
pretty well into Iowa.
Divisional Report . i
On the basis 6f 100 per cent for a
perfect , corn crop, officials of the
Burlington make the following esti
mate, by divisions, on the crop of this

On the McCook division, covering
the western portion of the state, con
ditions are not so lavoraDie as tarther
east. Out there, however, the report
indicates that a large portion of the
corn has been cut and put into silos.
Seeding Half Finished. ? ' ,
The seeding: of fall wheat has pro
gressed rapidly and agents along the
several lines estimate that therewill
be a. much larger acreage than last
year. The seeding 'i about SO per cent
Sugar beets promise better than an
average crop and the same is true
with reference, to the late potatoes.
Dry weather damaged the early crop.

PoJtceman Finds Safe n
v . In Grocery Tampered With
Officer Speaf found the rear door
of the Hibbeler grocery, 2312 Vinton,
broken open early this morning. An
other door leading into. an adjoining
meat market , was also broken
through. The cash register was
opened and checks were scattered
about the floor, but it., was not
learned whether1 anything had been
taken.. The safe showed evidence of
having been tampered with. .
WHY SOCIETY WOMEN WASH
THEIR OWN HAIR v
.They do, not because it is a fad,
but because they wish to obtain -the
greatest possible hair beauty and be
sure they ' are not using anything
harmful They have found that in
washing the hair it is never wise to
use a makeshift, bat is always ad
visable to use a preparation made
for shampooing-: only Many of .our
friends say they get the best results
from a simple home-made canthrox
mixture; You can use this at a cost of
about three cents a shampoo by get
ting some canthrox from your druggist,-
and dissolving a teaspoonf ul in a
cup of hot water. This makes enough
shampoo liquid to apply to all the
hair instead of just the top of the
head, 1 as ' with most , preparation!
Dandruff, excels oil and dirt are dis
solved and entirely disappear in the
rinsing water. Your hair will be so
fluffy that it will look much heavier,
than it is. Its lustre and softness will
also delight you. Advertisement.
