"A STEER A LOAD"
NEW SLOGAN FOR

Cattle Shippers to 3e Asked tc
Present War Chatty With
One Animal From Each
"Give a steer a load to the Red
Cross, is a motto which will proba
.u, k sdnntrH hv cattlemen at the
Omaha Live Stock exchange. Ship-
pers of cattle -win be asicea to in
struct the commission men they deal
with to select an average steer from
each consignment of cattle and have
a check for the amount that it brings
sent to the Red Cross chapter in
the county in which the shipper lives.
Since the average steer brings about
$140 at present, the Red Cross chap
ters throughout the state. will be giv
en a considerable amount if the plan
is put into effect ' Already some
shippers have been doing this. Hog
dealers have been donating animals
so generously to the Red Cross that
during the past six months more than
$300,000 has been given to the cause
of humanity. : t '
Cattlemen in the state have hereto
fore been appointing men from vari
ous counties to get an animal from
their neighbors, and, after gathering
a sufficient number to ship them to
be sold for the "greatest mother on
earth."., This method has been found
" inconvenient, since it necessitated
much riding around the ranges and
the cattle from s.trange herds showed
a disposition to fight.
The new plan was suggested yester-
, day by Rufus Hanev of Hyannis, Neb

Two Omaha grocers fell under the
ban of the federal food administration
for Nebraska yesterday afternoon for
taking excessive profits on sales of
sugar, and as a result they were put

selling sugar at 10 cents per pound,
one-half cent more than permitted.
He was ordered to quit dealing in
. sugar until August 20. '
H. J. Knudsen, 4619 Cuming street,
drew a like penalty, for a like offense.

COY SAYS IT HAS
PUT HIM BACK ON
THE JOB AGAIN
Wasn't Able To Do Any Work
' For Four Weeks Before
"Before taking Tanlae I was laid
up in bed for four weeks unable to
do a lick of work, but this wonder
ful medicine has put me on my feet
again and I am now back on, my
job," said John F. Coy, a journey
man carpenter living at 4821 North
Twenty-seventh street, the other day.
"I was always a strong and healthy
man," he continued, 'Sand a hard
worker, too, all my life, up to a
few weeks ago, when something got
the matter with me and my system
was soon all out of whack. I lost my
appetite, and my stomach got in such
an awful fix that I suffered terribly
with indigestion. After eating any
thing my food would sour and bloat
me up so with gas that I thought
at times my stomach would surely
burn upv it hurt so bad. My head
ached constantly and I would get so
dizzy at times that I would nearly
fall. I was badly constipated, too,
and my hips and shoulders ached so
bad with rheumatism that I could
hardly get around, and at last I just
had to quit working altogether and
try to get my health back. '
"I had heard of Tanlac for some
time but put off trying it, iill I was
knocked completely out, and I have
wished many a time since that I had
taken it before I diU, for it would
have saved me a lot of suffering. But
when I did get me a bottle and began
taking it my appetite picked up at
once, and it wasn't long before I
could eat anything I wanted. I kept
on taking Tanlac till now all symp
toms of my indigestion have entirely
disappeared, and I have no trouble at
all with gas or dizziness and never
know what a headache is. Those rheu
matic pains in my hips and shoulders
also soon disappeared, and I am now
feeling in just as good condition as
I was before I was ever sick at all,"

seeking the help and support of any
particular kind, class, race, blood or
political faction, but present my .
candidacy to all of the people as
man to man, and as one who believes
in our country's common welfare,
and that its course in the future
should be to advance the cause and
happiness, of mankind. To my
friends fand neighbors I say in all
sincerity that I am ntaking this race,
not to build up any political machine
or faction, but to serve this District
and our Country, with whatever
qualifications I. possess. '
I take pride in the friendships I
have made. When a farmer boy I
learned something of the farmer's
viewpoint of life, and as a resident
of a growing city for t twenty-five
years I feel that I know something
of city life and its problems, and it
shall be my endeavor to advocate
such measures as , will tend t to 'ad- '
vance the" cause of agriculture,
labor and business.

District. If the people of, this Dis
trict and the republican ' voters in
particular, are satisfied from what
I have done in the past, and from
what you know about me or have '
been able to learn from others,' that
I would make a satisfactory reprc- .
tentative in Congress, and Jiiat I
would be elected if nominated, I
ask each of you personally for your
vote and your active co-operation
and support at the primary election
to be held August 20, 1918. -
