Early Coal Buying Again
Urged by Fuel Official
Arthur L. Palmer, executive secre
tary of the fuel administration, has
issued,,, another appeal to people of
Nebraska to buy and store coal with
out delay. He urges early coal buy
ing as a war measure and to prevent
a repetition of last year's coal short
age in this state.
A son of the Emerald Isle, whose
wanderlust and improvidence re
sulted in his arrest during a period of
inebriety, his been employed about
the city jai! doing odd jobs as trusty.
He was ordered to scrub the
matron's quarters and here he first
was guilty ol insubordination.
He willingly shoveled coal and
cinders and washed automobiles, but
his independent and masculine soul
rebelled at the menia! task of playing
"Old Dutch Cleanser."
Detective Van Deusen was detailed
for a few mciments to oversee the
work and the Hibernian finally threw
dowrf his mop.
"Divil another inch will I scrub,"
said he. '"Tis not the likes of me to
rob anny woman of her birrthright.
Yez can put me on bread and wather
if ye want to, but divil another inch."
Van Deusen, to encourage and pla
cate him, answered: "You're doing
tine, after you have finished this job
here I'll take you out to my house."
"To schrub?" queried the prisoner
"Sure," replied Van Deusen.
"What kind of a woman did you
marry?" asked the Irishman.
"Irish," replied the detective.
"Glory be!" exclaimed the prisoner.
"'Tis the way of it. Bring a colleen,
barefutted from the Ould Sod, and
she's not here six weeks before yez
have her spoiled, wcarin' fine brogaus,
the air of a quane, and so lazy that
the only exercise she'll take at all is
tlie worry that she'll grow fat.''

It Takes Steady Nerves
Guarding our lines is like guarding our health we must encourage
the care of our bodies train our organs for bodily endurance, efficiency
and full achievement. "We must take advantage of all the known means
to conserve our health. It is not so much a necessity to fight disease
as to cultivate health for long life, happiness and contentment.
If we wish to prevent old age coming too soon or the sudden attack
of lumbago or rheumatism, if we want to increase our chances for long
life Dr. Pierce says: "Keep the kidneys in good order! Try to
eliminate through the skin and intestines the poisons that otherwise clog
the kidneys. Avoid eating meat as much as possible; avoid too much
salt, alcohol, tea. Try a milk and vegetable diet Drink plenty of water,
obtain Anuric, double strength, at druggists, and exercise so you per
spirethe skin helps to eliminate toxic poisons and uric acid."
For those past middle life, for those easily recognized symptom?
of inflammation, as backache, scalding "water," or if uric acid in the
blood has caused rheumatism, "rusty" joints, stiffness, get Anuric at
the drug store for 60c or send Dr. Pkurce, Invalids' Hotel and Surgical
Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., 10c for trial pkg. You will find Anuric many
times more potent than lithia and eliminates uric acid as hot water
melts sugar. A short trial will convince you. Send a sample of your
water to Dr. Pierce and it will be tested free of charge, or write for
free medical advice to the Invalids' Hotel.
An-uric is a regular insurance and life-saver for all big meat eaters
and those who deposit lime-salts in their joint". Try it now.
