J- :. YMrs.ZW.
Mrs. Frank Carmlchael has been
appointed chairman of the auxiliaries
for Omaha Red Cross chapter. She
succeeds Mrs. C. T. Kountze, whose

Red Cross activities. In the present
drive the Public shop has brought
41,910.40 in subscriptions.

to meet with chairmen of all surgical

Mrs. , Frank I. Ellick, assistant
chairman of the Public shop, has

Outfitting 1,000 Hospital
Beds in Three Hours
Out . of the ever-chapging death
struggle on the plains of , Picardy,
with its promise of victory, its specter
of defeat, one thing stands forth Un
changeable day by day the duty of
the Red Cross, -
Behind the blood-stained battle
line misery is again on the, road. As
in 1914, the refugees pld men,
women and children carry the help
less on shutters; the bird cage and
the improvised cradle make their ap
pearance on the muddy roads; the
trains are loaded with the wounded.
In Paris civilians lie crushed be
neath the ruins caused by air raids
and bombardment, while the railway
stations are crowded with the fleeing
refugees from northern France. It
might be 1914 over again.
Only this time there is a difference.
5o far as military relict is con
cerned, the same efficiency is observ'
aoie. A single illustration, inaeea,
can demonstrate the difference be
tween 1914 and 1918, where the
wounded soldier is concerned. In
three hours, recently, all the splints,
accessories, instruments and surgical
dressings required for a hospital of
1,000 beds were assembled and dis
patched from Paris.
To those of us who are left behind
these facts have become vital. Amer
ica is in the war at last a hundred
thousand strong.
Our duty is plain. Francis R. Bel
lamy, in The Red Cross Magazine.

ED CROSS week in Washington
s was Quite the most active one
yet among the women of the District
of Columbia, whether they be prema
nent residents or only here for the
war period. The week really opened
last' Saturday with the mammoth
parade of Red Cross workers, a
veritable sea of blue veils and white
suits, so far as the women were con
cerned, and various divisions, led by
the most prominent official and other
society women. Mrs. mcaooo, aaugn
ter of the president and wife of the
secretary of the treasury, marched at
the head of her organization, as Mrs.
Lansing, wife of the secretary of
state, marched at the head of the
State department workers, the first
one of the cabinet sections to be or
ganized. Mrs. Daniels, wife of the
secretary of the ' navy, marched
proudly at the head of navy women,
and Mrs; Bennett, wife of the major
general commandant of the marine
corps, headed the women of the ma
rine barracks section. The medical
branch of the army emergency com
mittee, with- Mrs. William C Gorgas,
wife Of the surgeon general, at its
head, was one of the most interesting
divisions of the mammoth parade,
which was the most picturesque one
Washington has seen in many years.
Wounded Soldiers.
Ah army 5 ambulance with six
wounded convalescing was a feature
of it. In the wagon was one soldier
-who has lost both legs in France, and
another who has lost an eye and a
part of the face. They are among the
large detachment of wounded men in
the Walter Reed military hospital in
Washington. They had in the am
bulance with them their bull terrier,
vuhn ha also seem service in the
trenches, and was actually rescued
with them and brought over. He was
once slightly wounded. About his
neck in the parade, he had a tin cup
fastened to his collar, and during the
course of the parade $21 was dropped
into it. Following the ambulance was
the ambulance corps of women with
Mrs. Borden Harriman, its organizer,
at the head. The, women were par
ticularly picturesque in their soft gray
costumes of small, close-fitting caps
and long coats over bloomers, boots
and puttees. ;
Mrs. Thomas F. Wal has an in
teresting and distmguisnea circle oi

Not secret, not new, just right
and true. Sold by all druggists.
It is not necessary to shampoo
your hair so frequently if it is en
tirely and properly cleansed each ,
time by the use of a really good
shampoo. The easiest to use and
quickest drying shampoo that w
can recommend to our readers it
one that brings out all the natural
beauty of the hair and may be en
joyed at very little expense, by dis
solving a teaspoonful of Canthrox,
which can be obtained from anj
druggist's, in a cup of hot water. -This
makes a full cup of shampoc
liquid, enough so it is easy to applj -it
to all the hair instead of just to
the top of the head. This, when
rubbed into the scalp and onto everj
strand of hair, chemically dissolves
all impurities. It is very soothing and
cooling in its action, as well as bene
ficial to both scalp and hair. After
rinsing out the lather so created,
you will find the scalp is fresh, clean
and free from dandruff, while th
hair dries quickly and evenly, devel
oping a bright luster and a soft
fluffiness that makes it seem verj -heavy.
