Land Commissioner Shumway
Drops Role as Politician and

He's Some Bard.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 13. (Special.)
Office holding has brought out
qualities in men not before suspected.
Land Commissioner Grant Shumway
is resourceful, very resourceful. As
a prophet he stands in a class by him
self and as a statesman few can
match him. But now he crops out
with another characteristic. It seems
he can write poetry. Not only can he
write it in a manner that woulu make
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow green
with envy, but he can reach up into
the intellectual heavens and pluck
therefrom beautiful roses of rhetorec,
equalled only in Boston, the city of
esthetic glory and baked beans. Here
is his latest:
The autumn leaves are falling to the mould;
Along the sumac's hedge is vagrant fire;
The ferns and forests are of amber gold.
Shot through with emerald as they expire;
All nature seems in glory when it dies.
The day's resplendant orb. retiring, throws
Its gorgeous translucent draperies
Around its couch, as it sinks to repose;
And Cygnus, or the babied dying swan,
Tho sweet Its song alas it sings but one.
Arrival of Autumn witnesses frui
tion of hopes, abundance and happi
ness, where the largosses of the
farms are transmuted into gold.
Surplus in amplitude has come from
Nebraska's peerless soil, and its ex
change brings modern farm houses,
larger barns, better stock, motor cars
and Liberty bonds.
It has brought more a content"
ment with rural life, which modern
convenience contemplates. The young
folks from the country are leading in
the grand march of the common
Autumn of 1917 has come on time,
loaded down with a summer of events.
There is something about this march
of seasons, that bids one pause and re
flect. The more one plants to do,
the less time there is to do it; the
larger load one would anticipate for
a summer, the more swiftly does that
summer glide along. Ere one knows
it the ideas of autumn show from
The trees of home drops down upon
one's head a yellow leaf, the carpet
of green gives out a sense of ma
turity, the garden shows only a rem
nant of its former promise and ful
fillment, and in the thinning foliage
of the orchard are branches bending
down with red and w'pening fruit;
yellow pumpkins peek from fields of
corn,' and the fields themselves, like
frests, hold their contributions high
in the air, 250,000,000 bushels of Coro
Straw-stacks, eaolian marcelled and
drifted by blow stackers, tell of a
harvest past The spider spins his
gossamer in the browning stubble
fields; the cows sway homeward over
abandoned pastures, rolling in fat, and
ever ready to yield an ample compen
sation fr the very joy of living. Sym
bols of : lenty a million haystacks
dot a-thousand meadows.
The frest fringe along the river
front shows tips of red, and brown
and gold here and there in its dark
bank of green. Goldenrod crowns
hill and ridge, and pale, gray wilder
ness yarrow, deepening to brown and
purple, nods 'over the virgin prairies.
The flowers have turned to deeper
hues, dark red and yellow, cannas,
mosses, and the persistent crimson

they are blended in nature's mysteri

for any team to beat the Giants as
they played in New York, but we

Avoid All Meat '
If Kidneys and
Uric Acid In Meat Excites Kidneys
and Irritates the
Take Salts at First Sign of Bladder
Weakness or Kidney-Backache.
Kidney and Bladder weakness re
sult from uric acid, says a noted au
thority. The kidneys filter this acid
from the blood and pass it on to the
bladder, where it often remains to ir
ritate and inflame, causing a burning,
scalding sensation, or setting up an
irritation at the neck of the bladder,
obliging you to seek relief two or
three times during the night. The
sufferer is in constant dread, the wa
ter passes sometimes with a scalding
sensation and is very profuse; again,
there is difficulty In voiding it.
Bladder weakness, most folks call
it, because they can't control urina
tion. While it is extremely annoying
and sometimes very painful, this is
really one of the most simple ailments
to overcome. Get about four ounces
of Jad Salts from your pharmacist
and take a tablcspoonful in a glass of
water before breakfast, continue this
for two or three days. This will neu
tralize the acid in the urine so it no
longer is a source of irritation to the
bladder and urinary organs, which
then act normally again.
Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless,
and is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia,
andjs used by thousands of folks who
arev subject to urinary disorders
caused by uric acid irritation., Jad
Salts is splendid for kidneys and
causes no bad effects whatever.
Here you have a pleasant, effer
vescent lithia-water drink which
quickly relieves bladder trouble.
