MUCH FEEDING OF
With Price of Husking High
and Corn Soft, Commission
Men Expect Good
There will be' more feeding than
usual in Nebraska this year, according
to the stockmen who visit the ctocl
yards. So much of the corn is soft
and the price of husking so high, that
many farmers believe the most prac
tical solution to the problem is to
buy cattle, or hogs or sheep, and turn
them into the corn helds. iott corn,
which would bring very little on the
market, makes good teed and this
plan eliminates the expense of hiring
Farmers Buy Feeders.
The last three weeks have seen an
influx of farmers at the stock yards,
who come to buy live stock to take
home to husk their corn, lhis plan
will result in an increase in live stock
that will be of treat value.
Farmers report that corn shucking
has been stopped in many places be
cause the corn is still so soft Many
farmers have found that corn which
they have cribbed has started to spoil
and they are busy now taking it out
of the cribs and spreading it out to

Police Urge Theaters

all theater managers to use every pos

KEEP LOOKING YOUNG
It's Easy-If You Know Dr.
Edwards' Olive Tablets
The lecret of keeping young is to feel
young to do this you must watch your
liver and bowels there's no need of
having a sallow complexion dark rings
under your eyes pimples a bilious
look In your face dull eves with no
sparkle. Your doctor will tell you ninety
per cent of all sickness comes from in
active bowels and liver.
Dr. Edwards, a well-known nhvsician
in Ohio, perfected a vegetable com
pound mixed with olive oU to set on
the liver and bowels, which he gave to
his patients for years.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets, the substi
tute for calomel, are gentle in their action
yet always effective. They bring about
that exuberance of spirit; that natural
buoyancy which should be enjoyed by
everyone, by toning up the liver and clear
log the system of impurities.

South Side, Melting Pot of Middle
West, Push Together to Down Kaiser
It's a . raw, red life on the South
Side and the game' is played in the
rough. Life is intense and passions
are near the skin. South Side is a
melting pot. People of every breed
and creed, from every nation in the
world, have gathered here that they
might fight fairly, in the battle of life.
The world war flame makes the
melting pot boil. Every heart on the
South Side beats in . sympathy with
the troops who are marching against
the foe to democracy. Bohemians,
Rusisans, Poles, Serbs, Croatians,
Slovenians, Lithuanians and Amer
icans all push together to overthrow
kaiserism. There is a thrill in the
sight of these people of many nations
working together for a common aim.
One is impressed with the oneness of
our allied cause as he visits the for
eigners on the South Side and sees
them working in the cause of free
dom. If one visits the Bohemian Wom
an's Service league he will find busy
women knitting sweaters for the
Sammies, they may pass on to a pa
trjotic meeting among the Poles or
Lithuanians, or they may find the
Serbs busy with war relief work.
The various colonies of the South
Side have adopted these slogans:
"Stars and Stripes for freedom
for all oppressed nations."
"We are for free Poland and the
United States, all the time."
"The Slavic nations must be free."
"The Stars and Stripes will save
Berryman's Two-Piano Recital'
Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Berryman decid
ed that-"two souls with but a single
thought, two hearts that beat as one,"
might be extended in their case to
the piano as well, and consequently
gave a two-piano recital last evening
at Schmoller & Muellers Music
rooms. Both Mr. and Mrs. Berryman
are well known in local musical cir
cles, Mrs. Berryman, when she was
Miss Alice Virginia Davis, and Mr.
Berryman having been heard frequent
ly in individual piano recitals. A brief
talk by Mr. or Mrs. Berryman pref
aced each number and gave the aud

which brought as an. encore, "Morn

There are a dozen little colonies in

TRAIN YOUR HAIR AS AH
No class ot people devotes as much
time to beauty as do actresses, and
no class must be more careful to re
tain arid develop their charms. In

in hair care they find it dangerous
to shampoo with any makeshift' hair
cleanser. The majority say that to
have the best hair .wash and scalp
stimulator at a cost of about three
cents, onfc need only get a package
of canthrox from your druggist; dis
solve a teaspoonful in a cup of hot
water and your shampoo is ready.
This makes enough shampoo liquid
to apply it to all the hair instead of
jpst the top of the head. After its
use the hair dries rapidly, with uni
form color. Dandruff, excess oil and
dirt are quickly dissolved and entire
ly disappear when you rinse the hair.
After this your hair will be so fluffy
that it will look much heavier than
it is. Its lustre and softness will
also delight you, while the stimulated
scalp gains the health which insures
hair growth. Adv.
