FUSILLADE OF GAS
SHELLS ON ENEMY
Americans Forced to With
draw When Germans Repel ,
-Trench Raid by Attack
With Hand Grenades.
With the American army in France,
Tuesday, March 19. American artil
lery on the Toul front has heavily
.Hacked the Germans with gas shells
during the past day or 60, it is now
permitted to announce.
Four different attacks were
launched and from the manner in
which the enemy was silenced it is
evident they had the desired effect.
During one period when the gas
shells were flying over the enemy
lines last night, a German airplane
with a red tail light appeared over the
American lines and dropped a red
rocket, for what purpose it is not
known. However, shrapnel from
American anti-aircraft batteries burst
so near the German immediately aft
erward that he was forced to fly for
' his own lines in a hurry.
Americans Shell Montsec.
Last night the enejny observation
tower and positions on Montsec were
Shelled heavily and heavy fire was di
rected against the enemy lines this
At noon today the enemy opened a
WvAv fir nn one of the American po-
sitions with .37-millimeter guns from'
the cemetery at Richecourt. The
American guns of the, same caliber
came into action and after they had
fired SO shells, the Germans ran from
the position and took their guns from
them. The American guns then shelled
the village of LaHayville, where two
heavy explosions, apparently of muni
tion stores, resulted. -
Germans Use Gas Shells.
The German artillery directed most
of its attentionto dropping a few gas
shells into one or two towns within
the American lines and shelling cross
roads, known as Death's corner dur
ing the day and night.
Last night . American patrols en
tered the German front lines at two
points, but did not see a single enemy
soldier, although they hunted some
time. , - .
Another patrol remained in the
enemy wire entanglements all night
hoping to ambush an expected enemy
party, but it did not appear.
A third patrol party was discov
ered by the Germans,, who hurled
hand grenades and forced the Amer
icans to withdraw. Still another es
tablished contact with n enemy pa
. i trol and a few shots were exchanged.
I The Americans came through un
scathed, but it is not known what
happened to the Germans.
Allied Plane Lost
Many airplanes were up until it
began to rain at noon. One airplane
from the rear of the Americain line
drove oS two boche machines after
a thrilling battle in and out of the
clouds. Another airplane was en
gaged against a German when aiec-
ona ucrnian jinncu in me uguu t
second friendly airman came tip to
assist but it was too late, for the
airplane the Americans hoped would
be victorious ten to tne grouna wun
in the cnenty lines. - x : .

A corn cannot be shipped east hereafter
except la equipment furnished by eastern
lines. It was apparent that the bull
side of the market bad been placed under

promptly the accumulations of corn ready

however, rural consignments are falling off.
Depressing effects of the reinstatement , of
tn embargo, were somewhat counterbal

Amundsen Says Labor Must
Do More to Help Win War
Chicago, March 20. American labor
has become cock sure because of high
wages received and must come down
from its high jiorse ,and help win the
war, Captain Roald Amundsen, Nor
wegian explorer and discoverer of the
South Pole, declared tonight in an
address under the auspices of the .Chi
cago Swedish-American societies
Laborers can t be slackers in their
work and wave the flag of patrrtism
at the same time,' continued Cao'ain
Amundsen. "Labor must see that there
is no cessation of the work of building
shipjs and othef necessities. Every
idle Content on the part of, a laborer
means the war will last just that much
longer. When labor becomes imbued
with, the idea of work and nothing
else, then it will do its full share
toward winning the war."

NO TEARS SHED.
There was no suggestion of sad
ness when they prepared to leave.
Bands played, regiments paraded,
and farewell celebrations were held
nightly in every barrack.
Men who were to remain m camp
made the best of their fate, getting a
measure of enjoyment by feasting and
banqueting the departing bunkies.
Speeches by colonels and privates
pictured the spirit driving them on
and portrayed their hopes that they
might be worthy ,of the trust.
No one shed a tear. It was not a
time for tear shedding. It was time
for songs, and they sang; a time for
cheers, and they cheered.
ALL FULL OF PEP.
When train after train pulled away
from the depot at Camp Funston
loaded to capacity with consignments
of olive drab there was bedlam of
bands cheering and singing. Banners
were displayed everywhere lettered
with slogans of determination to
reach the stronghold of the arch
criminal; determination to make Ne
braska proud of its output. Cheers
for the other six home states, entries
for just one chance at the boches, and
farewell to the folks back home.
Cheers Still Ring.
They left, and going, left behind a
renewed split of determination un
conquerable in the remaining men.
How long ago they left cannot be
told, but the echoes ot tneir depart
ing cheers are still reverberating in
the hearts of the men in camp.

Now Does Own Housework
and Weighs More Than
She Has in 18 Years.
"I wasdown in bed and couldn't
raise my head or move without help
and now I'm able to do all my housework-even

"For many years," continued Mrs.
Hawkins, "I suffered with rheuma
tism in my shoulders, arms and in my
sides and neck, and I had indigestioy,
too, in its acute form. The rheuma
tism got me down in bed and had me
bound so hard and fast somebody had
to move me about and the pain was
terrible. I couldn't so muh as lift my
little : six-months-old baby, and we
had to hire someone to wait on me
and do my work. I was so nervous
and full of pain the least little thing
dropping on the floor would startle
me and my heart would almost stop
beating and the only way I could got
any sleep and rest was from hypo
dermics. I had indigestion so bad I
couldn't eat any solid food at all, and
I was so thin and weak and in such a
run-down condition that my baby fell
off until it was just a little skeleton,
and fretted and cried all the time ex
cept when it was given something to
make it quiet. My condition was too
awful to try to describe it all. No
kind of treatment on medicine did me
any good and I was getting worse all
the time, and I dont know what I
would have done if it hadn't beea for

TRAIN YOUR HAIR AS AN
No class of people devotes as much
time to beauty as do actresses, and no
class nust be more careful to retain
and develop their charms. Inquiry

care they find it dangerous to sham
poo 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, ona
need only get a package of Canthrfcri
from your druggist; dissolve a tea
spoonful 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 just the top of
the head. After its use the hair dries
rapidly, with uniform color. . DarN
druff, excess oil and dirt are quickly
dissolved andt entirely disappear;
when you rinse, the hair. After this
your hair will be so fluffy it will look
much heavier than it is. Its lusternd
softness will delight you, whil the
stimulated scalp gains the health
which insures hair growth. Ad
