TOUR M STATE
Bring First-Hand Information
of Actual Conditions in War
ring Countries and Train
t ing Methods. .
Bringing first hand information of
actual food conditions in the warring
countries, federal food speakers will
be in Nebraska the week of February
25 to March 2. This information
has come to Gurdon W. Wattles,
federal food administrator for Ne
braska, from Washington.
The tour of the state will open
with meetings in Omaha and Lin
coln, after which the teams will tour
the state, one working from Omaha
in the northern part of the state Snd
the other from Lincoln through the
southern part of the state.
The itineraries of the speakers will
be under the direction of Mr. Wat
tles, who will cover the state as
thoroughly as possible.
John B. Lord, one of the men sent
across, has written' as follows:
"We have read of the women of
France; the women of England are
just as remarkable, and their sac
rificing spirit to aid their country is
just as superb.
"We inspected one of the training
camps where women get intensive
farm training in eight weeks. The
. girls come from all walks of life
and from all occupations. They learn
to do dairying, ploughing with
sturdy little tractors, seeding, plant
ing, and in fact everything pertain
ing to farm life.
"After such training they go by
Crder to any part of the country to
any farm where a man can be re
leased for military duty.
"The information these men will
bring to Nebraska will be intensely
interesting," said Mr. Wattles. 'They
will give us dirert information of
conditions as they exist. They
will make us realize all the more
keenly what our duty is after we
kave heard what the wonderful peo
ples,, our Allies, are doing."
TO LAMP POSTS,
Hartford, Conn., Jan. 18. Gover
nor John M. Holcomb, addressing a
state war council here today, urged
citizens to refrain from criticism of
the government and to co-operate in
every way possible.
Referring to the government order
for a five days' suspension of factory
operation. Gov. Holcomb said:
"You have seen the order in the
newspapers this morning about clos
ing' the factories for five days. It is
ujHB all of us to refrain from criticis
ing the government and each one of
us should remember this and spread
the doctrine in our home towns.
"The only way for you to fight this
war is to back up your government
The trenches are now 3,000 miles
away, but there are plenty of the
Prussianized German element right
here in this state. If we are to be
loyal to our boys over there, we must
not let that element show its head
"Lampposts have been put to other
Uses than for inebriates to lean
against. I am not going to talk to
you against law and order, but
we are going to maintain law and
order some way and the state is go
ing to be kept rjght side up."

HERE'S HOW ON ROAST HORSE
One Skeptical Person Facetiously Asks Did
You Serve Hay at Your Equine Feast?
AS THE BEE'S COOK SEES IT
By Irma H. Goss.
Editor Heme Economics Department
of The Bee.
Well I've tried it! Horse meat,
It isn't so bad either. In fact you'd
think j?ou were eating beef if someone
didn't tell you what was set before
When The Bee asked me to write
about horse meat, I said, "What do I
know about horse meat? I never
The city editor said "Will you try
some if we get it for you?''
I said Of course I will. And they
got it. And I tried it. And 1 m still
living to tell the tale. So is my fam
ily still living.
Word was sent to Tom Bradstreet
and Grand Island that The Bee would
like some horse meat, so Tom sent
down a splendid 12-pound equine
roast with his compliments.
I tried it three ways Some was
stewed just plain stew with veget
ables; some was roasted; and some
was braised in a casserole with on
ions. I roasted one piece without
any manipulation and one piece I
roasted after injecting pieces of fat
There is a new instrument on the
market for putting strips of fat into
very tough meat to make the meat
more tender. The instrument work
ed splendidly for the prepared roast
was more tender than the one roasted
as it was.
I like the casserole dish best of all.
To make it. I tried out some of the
fat in a skillet browned three onions
in the fat, then removed the onions to
I sprinkled the piece of horse meat
with salt, pepper and flour and brown
ed it on all sides in the same skillet.
I put the meat in the casserole on a
layer of onions, covered it with the
rest of the onions and poured hot wat
er over it till the meat was half cov
ered with water. I baked it in a slow
oven two hours.
I've told you what I thought about
it. Now I'll tell you what other per
Inquiring friends and relatives over
the telephone: "Are you really eating
horse meat? I don t believe it. It
can't be true? "
A neighbor girl: "Gosh, don't give
me very much." After tasting, "It
isn't so bad after all."
A neighbor boy appeared on the
scene armed with a hammer and saw.
He resolutely attacked all three kinds
of the delicacy. Verdict "It's a lot
A neighbor over the telephone: "No
thank you. I can't come over. My
life is not insured."
A loyal friend who came all of half
a mile to give her opinion: "I like it
just as well as buffalo steak that I
tasted last week. I could get used
to the flavor easily."
A skeptical masculine person: "Dil
you serve hay with it?"

Sheriff Clark Renews Request
Made Last Spring for In
stallation of Padded
German Papers Declare
Government Condons Bigamy
(By AiMolstod ProM.)
Geneva, Jan. . 18. Several south
German newspapers which have been
received here raise a cry of alarm
over the increase of bigamy in Ger
many during 1917. They say the
many acquittals and the lenient sen
tences imposed Indicate that the au
thorities are condoning the offense.
Among the excuses pleaded by the
men accused re loss ofjniemory be
cause of shell shock; departure of the
wife without leaving an address and
infidelity on the part of a wife. Some
have gone so far as to declare boldly
that .'plural marriages are good for
the nation's future. A corporal told
a Munich court that he got married
every time he obtained leave from
the trenches and he. believed he had
Eleven cases were tried in Berlin,
seven in Cologne and five in Munich
last December. The deceived women
usually are not willing to prosecute.
The suicide of Terezie Benes in a
cell at the county jail Wednesday
morning has aroused the county offi
cials to the necessity of a padded cell
in the jail equipment.
A coroner's jury was requested to
examine the case Thursday. A ver
dict of suicide was returned, specific
ally stating that no blame was attach
ed to the jail officials.
"This case may prove an eye-opener
to the county board," said Commis
sioner O'Connor. "We had the ques
tion of a padded cell for the jail up
once before. They are not expensive
Sheriff Clark requested the board to
install a cell last spring when an in
sane prisoner tried to kill himself by
jumping from a window ledge to the
cement floor of his cell.
"I hope this case will hasten its in
stallation," said Sheriff Clark. "A
recommendation of the grand jury is
on, file with the board to the effect
that a ward should,be furnished for in
sane patients, but it has never been
Clark is now using a room for liquor
storage which, he says could very well
be divided into two cells fitted with
protective padding and screened win
dows at a small cost.
The Perfect Laxative
is an ideal remedy for consti

simple laxative herbs with pepsin that
acts in an easy, natural manner, and is
as safe for children as it is positively
effective on, the strongest constitution.

"Thorough Preparation Wins"
Said General Pershing.
It's true, not only as applied
to battles, but to our every day
business life as well.
Months of steady, systematic,
grinding preparation enables
this store to offset war condi
tions, and offer clothing values
unmatched in America.

You'll never again see such wonder

followed the custom, in force elsewhere, of "hand-to-mouth"
merchandising, instead of looking ahead and preparing, no
such jalues would be available.
Read These Facts About the Situation:
All the sheep in the world today
cannot meet the greatly increased de
mand for wool. Wool prices have ad
vanced from 18c before the war to
over 70c per pound.
The pure linen canvas used in fine
clothing in this country formerly came
from Belgium. You can imagine how
hard it is to get today.

Labor, too, was never 10 scarce or
high priced as it is now. In fact, all
that goes in the making of fine clothing
has advanced in price enormously.
Such a condition is unparalleled,

deliver the goods. You'll find here
