while his business at Brookings was
on a small scale compared with the
tire business at Akron, O., and other

been sold in every state and many for
eign countries. Not until it was a
demonstrated success did he enter
tain any of the offers made his com

that we have made a very wise selec

erty at Twenty-fourth street and Pop
pleton avenue is on trackage and
street car line, within full view of all
trunk lines passing through the city.
"I am enthusiastic over our pros

will soon be in operation alongside of
us, so that we can make Omaha the
Akron of the west in tire manufac
turing." DONATIONS SENT
TO ARMOUR MEN
"Charity begins at home," is the
motto of the Armour Comfort club,
which has adopted the 1,500 Armour
men who are in the service. The
work of the club is vital, because it

sacrifices that the boys with whom
they formerly worked may be given
Each of the Armour men in the
service has received a sweater, a pair
of wristlets and a helmet knitted by
members of the club atter working
hours. Each receives a letter a week
and comfort boxes containing Camel
cigarettes, gum, candy, bouillon
cubes, sweet chocolate, a safety razor,
a comb, grape jelly, peanut butter, and
It costs $6,000 a month to send
these comfort boxes to the boys, and
the larger part of the money is do
nated by the members of the club.
The Armour company co-operates
with the club in its work and has ar
ranged so that it may purchase sup
plies for the soldiers at cost.

Our destroyers and scout ihips are waiting for the sudden attack
or the deadly torpedo the watch on the Atlantic is on the lookout
for the first indication of hidden danger- it'a a fight for life. For
those leading a quiet life at home it is often the unexpected that hap
pens. It may he that we are mysteriously attacked by pain in our
back or limbs, lumbago, "neuralgic" pains shooting anywhere. Back
ache of any kind is often caused by kidney disorders, which
means that the kidneys are not working properly. Poisonous matter
and uric acid accumulate within the body in great abundance, over
working the sick kidneys; hence the congestion of blood causes back
ache in the same manner as a similar congestion in the head causes
headache. Perhaps you become nervous, despondent, aick, feverish,
irritable, have spots appearing before the eyes, bags under the lids,
and lack of ambition to do things. The latest and most effective means
of overcoming such trouble, is to eat sparingly of meat, drink plenty
of water between meals, and take a single An-uric Tablet before each
meal for a while, or until recovered.
Simply ask your favorite druggist for Anuric Tablets (double
strength). If you have lumbago, rheumatism, gout, dropsy, begin
immediately with this newest discovery of Dr. Pierce, who is Chief
Medical Director of Surgical Institute in Buffalo, N. Y. Send 10c for
trial pkg. All druggists sell large package for sixty cents.
Dr. Pierce's Pellets regulate and invigorate stomach, liver and
bowels. Compound of May-apple, aloes and jalap. Keep the body clean
inside as well as outside.
To the Personal Tax Payers of Douglas County:
I shall very much regret to issue distress warrants
to the sheriff for collection of the 1917 county and 1917
city delinquent personal taxes on February 1st, as pro
vided by Section 6483, Statutes of Nebraska. It would
only add additional cost and expenses to said taxes.
For the benefit of the tax payers. I will extend the
time for paying these taxes to February 15th. Please
pay them now, if you believe in conservation.
