Swift & Co Increases Its
Stocks to $150,000,000
The Omaha olant of Swift & Co.
received a message from the firm in
Chicago stating that the packing firm
has increased its stock from $100,000,
" - 000 to $150,000,000 at a special meeting
ot tne stocknoiaers.
"Increased business requires in
creased capital," President Louis F.
Swift stated. "The extremely high
price of live stock, for which we pay
A y cash, the larger stocks of meat that
war conditions necessitate and the
continuous increase in cost of opera
tion have made large demands upon
us. We are, therefore, offering to our
shareholders $25,000,000 of additional
stock for cash at par, at the rate of
. one share of new stock for each four
shares of old stock.
"The $25,000,000 cash proceeds of
this issue will greatly strengthen the
financial position of the company and
will enable it to discharge its function
with a full degree of efficiency.
"This dividend is not being paid out
' of the earnings, it is being issued
against surplus resulting from an ad
justment of values of the fixed as
sets of the company to values current
January 1, 1914, based upon an ap
praisement under the American Ap
praisal Company of Milwaukee.
"The meeting authorized the in
crease of the capital stock from
$100,000,000 to $150,000,000 and the of
' fering of $25,000,000 at par to present
stockholders in the ratio of one share
of .new stock for each four shares now
held and the issuance of $25,000,000 of
- . the new stock as stock dividend to
present shareholders was approved."

OMAHA AGENTS ,
William Johnston, an alleged de

ed last week in Denison, la., by agents
of the Omaha office of the Depart
ment of Justice and later turned over
to the military officials at the camp.
Johnston, it is claimed, threatened
the Omaha officer and brandished a
butcher knife before he finally was
captured. A "tip" received in Omaha
that Johnston was at his home in
Denison led the Omaha officer to con
front his man in his own home. John
ston, the agent said, met him at the
door and after several threats to "cut
the officer's head off, flourished the
big knife. The officer, who was un
armed, obtained help in the persons
of deputy sheriffs from Denison, and
after a little "moral suasion," backed
by businesfls-looking revolvers, John
ston was placed under arrest.
New Bevo Plant is World's
- Largest Beverage Factory
The completion of the new $8,000,
000 Bevo plant in St. Louis is a nota
ble war-time industrial achievement.
The construction of this plant the
largest and most perfectly equipped
of its kind in the world, was made
necessary by the extraordinary de
mand for the highly meritorious non
alcoholic beverage perfected under
the personal supervision of August
A. Busch, president of Anheuser-
Busch, who succeeded his father, the
late Adolphus Busch, as head of the
many great Anheuser-Busch industrial
After years of scientific experi
ments and .original research, Bevo
was created for two purposes: as an
aid to the promotion of Mr. Busch's
plans for a real sane temperance pro
gram in America, based upon educa
tion and intelligent moral develop
ment and to supply the public with
the. highest quality of non-alcoholic
beverage that science and manufac
turing skill could produce. Bevo is
used extensively on battleships and
in cantonments with the approval of
the heads of the Navy and War de
partments. Besides being president of the Anheuser-Busch
the largest industry of its kind in the
world, Mr. Busch is interested in
many enterprises, including farming,
stock raising, banking, manufacturing
and railroading. He is also a mem
ber of the executive committee of the
St. Louis branch of the National Se
curity league, which is actively en
gaged in work in connection with the
prosecution of the, war.

WORK OF NURSES
IN FRANCE TOLD
BY MISS M'CABE
That public health nurses are doing
their share of war work as thoroughly
as Red Cross nurses was a point em
phasized at the American Nurses' as
sociation convention held in Cleve
land . last week, according to Miss
Florence McCabe, superintendent of
the local Visiting Nurse association,
who returned Sunday from the meet
ing. "Public health or 'place nurses' are
needed to protect the health of sol
diers' families in order to keep up the
morale of the soldiers at the front.
These nurses also do their bit by
guarding the health of workers in in
dustry, in order that ammunition and
necessary supplies may go forward,"
said Miss McCabe.
Baby stations, which the visiting
nurses will open in Omaha the first of
June, where many foreign-born re
side, were highly complimented by
Miss Julia Lathrop, head of the fed
eral children's bureau, in her talk
before the convention on baby saving.

Federal Court Decision Pro

A decision by Judge Woodrough in
federal court Monday afternoon pro
vides for the disposal of 5,000 acres of
Indian tribal land held by Omaha In-,
dians in Thurston county, the pro
ceeds from which are to be divided
equally among approximately 520 In
dian children of the Omaha tribe. The
value of the land is nearly $300,000.
The decision ends a series of legal
battles that extended over a period of
years. It is favorable both to the
United States government the de
fendant, and the Omaha tribe of In
dians, the majority of whom were in
favor of the sale of the land and the
distribution of the proceeds among
their children, great numbers of whom
were left unprotected by the allot
ment of lands on Indian reservations,

BEST WAY TO WASH THE HAIR
We find you can bring out the
beauty of your hair to its very best
advantage by washing it with Can -throx.
It make3 a very simple, in
expensive shampoo, which cleanses
the hair and scalp thoroughly' of all
the dandruff, dirt and excess oil,
leaving a wonderfully clean, whole- 1
some feeling. After its use you will
find that the hair dries quickly and
evenly, is never streaked in appear
ance and is always bright, soft and
fluffy; so fluffy, in fact, that it looka
more abundant than it is, and so
soft that arranging it becomes a
pleasure. Just use a teaspoonful of
Canthrox, which you can get from
any good druggist's, dissolve it in a
cup of hot water; this makes a full
cup of shampoo liquid, enough so it
is easy to apply it to all the hair in
stead of just the top of the head.
