How do the mothers whose boys
are in the army and on their way to
France feel about this war? Maybe
you have, asked; that question. A
mother who has three sons in service
handed, the following clipping yester
day as an answer:
Edward Markham, the poet, undet
the unpatrioth title, "I Did-Not Raise
My Boy to Be a Soldier," wrote thii
"O mothers, will you longer give
your sons to feed the awful thunder
of the guns? What is the worth of
all these battle drums if from the
field .he loved one .never comes?
What all these loud hosannas to the
brave if all your sha. is some frogot
ten grave?" " '
Dr. James L. Hughes of Toronto,
who lost a son in Belgium, replies as
1 follows: . ,
God gave my son in trust to me;
Christ died for him and he should be
A man for Christ. He is his own,
And God's and man's, not mine alone
He was not mine to "give." He gave
Himself that he might help to save
All that a Christian should revere.
All that enlightened men hold dear.
"To feed the guns." Ah, torpid sou!
Awake and see life as a whole. A
When freedom, honor, justice, right,
Were threatened . by the . despot's
" v might,' - .'
With heart aflame and. soul alight.
He bravely went for God to fight
Against base savagesvwhpse pride
The laws of God. and man defied.
Who slew the mother and her child,.
Who maidens pure, and sweet defiled.
He did not go "to feed the gufts;".. .
He went to save from ruthless Huns
His home and country, and to be :
A guardian of democracy.
"What if he does not cbme?" yon say.
takingthem an auto load of groceries,
vegetables, jellies, canned . fruit,
meats and fowls. ...
The following west side people en

strenuous days of war relief drives and
campaigns. The presence of Colo

for whom box party reservations have

Ah, vyelll My sky would be more
But through the clouds the sun would
shine, . ,
And vital memories be mine,
God's test of manhood is; I know,
Not "will he come?" but "did he go?"
My son . well knw that he might die,
And yet he went with purpose nign
To fight for peace and overthrow
The plans of Christ's relentless foe.
He dreaded not the battlefield;
He went to make fierce vandals yield.
If. he comes not again to me
I shall be sad, but not that he
Went like a man a hero true
His part unselfishly to do.
My heart will feel exultant pride
That for humanity he died.
"Forgotten gravel" This selfish plea
Awakes no deep response in me,
For, though his grave I may not see,
My boy will ne er forgotten be,
My real son can never die,
'Tis but his body that may lie
In foreign land, and I shall keep
Remembran e fond, forever, deep
Within my heart of my. true son
Because of triumphs that he won. -It
matters not where any one
May lie and sleep when work is done.
It matters not where some men live;
If my dear son his hie must give
Hosannas I will sing for him
E'en though my eyes with tears be
And when the war is over, when
His gallant comrades come again
I'll cheer thtm as they're marching by,
Rejoicing that they did not die. '
And when his vacant place I see
My heart will bound with joy that he
Was mine so long my fair young
LAnd cheer for him whose work is

SON OF JOSEPH SNYDER TO
BECOME U. S. FLYER
Alma, Neb., Dec. 1. (Special.)
Thanksgiving day was a little brighter
at the home of Joseph Snyder, for
mer member of the legislature and
well-known citizen of this place, be
cause his youngest son, Floyd, well
known to every one in Harlan county,
had just passed with honors in the
ground wo.k of the United States avi
ation corps at Austin, Tex. Young
Snyder passed a rigid examination to
enter the work at Austin. Mr. ny
der will get a lieutenant's commission
when he finishes the air work. N
Air Service Needs 10,000
Recruits Before Dec. 15
The government has called for
10,000 recruits , to enter various
branches of aeronautic service. These
men must all be enlisted before De
cember 15. -Sail makers, tailors, sad
dlers, cobblers, coppersmiths, metal
workers, auto mechanicians these
are-only a few of the tradesmen re
quired. It has been said that upon the op
eration of the proposed American ail
fleet depends the whole success of
the war. It follows that the demand
for skilled men who can aid in the
making of airplanes is as great as the
demand for trained aviators. -

SAY ABOUT NUXAT ED IRON :'i
Physicians explain why it so quickly puts such astonishing strength and youthful vigor into the veins of men and
women. Dr. James Louis Beyea, Adjunct Professor for fifteen years in the New York Homeopathic Medical
College, says severe tests made on himself and numerous patients absolutely convinced him
of its extraordinary merit.: Often increases the strength of delicate, nerv- ? v

dmaha Playwright's First
Effort Is Story of Drafted Man
A new playwright, born and reared
in Omaha, has come unheralded into
local literary circles in the person of
Miss Mae Greene, 2616 California
street. Judging from the amount of
favorable comment and unmistakable
interest her initial play has aroused,
she will not long remain in obscurity.
"Drafted", is the story of a young
man, pampered and spoiled, who has
been called to the colors. His obvious
inclination to dodge the issue, his final
surrender and the remarkable results
of camp life and military training on
the youth are cleverly woven into
, Miss Greene's accomplishments are
not confined to the literary field alone.
She is a graduate Red Cross nurse
and is now instructing a class at the
Good Shepherd convent.
"But the writing of this play took
up a great deal of your time, did it
not?" she was asked. "Oh, no, I wrote'
this play in exactly 10 hours," was the

ESTATE MAR PRAISES
Because of the Speedy Relief Ob
tained by Its Use.
The following is a testimonial of
Mr. Frank W. McMillan: ,
"Some time ago I received a se
vere injury to my wrist, and tried
various, preparations to relieve the
pain, but to no avail. I used G & G
Nerve and Bone Liniment and to my
astonishment and entire satisfaction,
it relieved me at once. I can truly
say that it is the cleanest and most
efficient liniment I have ever had
the occasion to use, and I can highly
endorse it to anyone who may be
suffering with an ache or pain."
G & G Nerve and Bone Lini
ment is sold by leading druggists.

PROBABLY no remedy he ever met with such phenomenal
success at has Nuxated Iron. Over three million people
annually are taking it in this country alone. It hat been
highly endorsed and used by Former United State Senator! and
Member of Congress; physician who have been -connected with
well known hospital have prescribed and recommended it ; Mon
eigneur Nannini, a prominent Catholic clergyman, recommend it
to all member of the Catholic church) Sarah Bernhardt "the
Diine Sarah," the world' mott noted actress, ha ordered a large
quantity ent to the French soldier to help give them strength,
power and endurance. Dr. A. J.' Newman, late Folice Surgeon of
the City of Chicago, and former House Surgeon, Jefferson Park
Hospital, Chicago, say Nuxated Iron ha proven through hi own
test of it to excel any preparation he has ever used for creating
red blood, building up the nerve, strengthening the muscle and
correcting digestive disorders.
. Dr. James Louis Beyea, for 15 year adjunct Professor in the
New York Homeopathic Medical College, ayt "A a physician
I have always been opposed to prescribing advertised remedies,
and for 15 year, while Adjunct Professor in the New York Ho
meopathic Medical College, I taught my medical ttudents that .
uch remedies were generally valueless, but in the case of Nux-
ated Iron severe test made on myself and numerou patient,
have absolutely convinced me that it is a remedy of most extra
ordinary merit and one Which should be generally prescribed by 1 "
all physician. Notwithstanding the fact that 1 am nearing my
80th birthday, short course of Nuxated Iron ha made me feel
like newman. Friend say, 'What have you been doing to your
self, you look so well and full of life?' In my opinion there i
nothing like organic iron Nuxated Iron to put youthful strength
and power into the vein of the weak, run-down, infirm or aged.
But beware of the old form of metallic iron which often do more
harm than good. To be absolutely sure that my patients get real
organic iron and not some form of the metallic variety, I always
prescribe Nuxated Iron in. it original package."
