First American Woman
Soldier Ccries to Omaha
Sergt. Ruth Farnam, the first
American woman soldier in the war
will visit Omaha in the interest of
the Fourth Liberty loan. She will
appear at the First Presbyterian
church Sunday evening, October 13,
and at the University club Monday
noon, October 14.
Mrs. Farnam was in Serbia when
war broke out and was active in
caring for the wounded. She was
decorated by the king of Serbia and
made a sergeant of the first cavalry
regiment of the Royal Serbian army
thus being the cmly American
woman actually to be attached to
the army as a soldier.
Sergeant Farnam was attached to
the general's staff during the famous
battle of Brod, and was decorated
for valor shown while stationed
with the staff in No Man's land.

BUY BONOS AS
Building and Loan Association
Arranges So That Every
One May Easily
The Fourth Liberty loan driv
in Omaha is on with full steam
ahead. The city is so thoroughly
organized that not a man, woman
or child will be slighted. All will
have an opportunity to get some of
Uncle Sam's valuable securities,
which are fhe safest on earth.
"Can't afford it" is no excuse. In
fact, such liberal terms are offered
that Liberty bonds can now be
bought with no more effort than it
takes to buy a talking machine or a
plush photograph album. They are
offered "on the installment plan."
The building and loan associations
of the city have come forward with
a proposition that means virtually
that they will loan money without
interest to people who haven't the
ready money to buy a few bonds.
They will help people buy bonds
and give them the interest which
accrues on the whole bond while
they are buying it.
The proposition, as outlined by
Paul W. Kuhns, president of the
Conservative Building and Loan as
sociation, is this: The buyer pays
the government's required 10 per
cent. After that he pays $4 a month
on each $50 bonds. He gets the
interest on the whole $50 bonds
while paying for it. This offer ap
plies to bonds only up to the value
All the banks are also offering
liberal terms to buyers. The bond
is not considered sold until 10 per
cent has been paid on it.
Street Railway Completes
Plans to Care for Crowds
The street railway company is
prepared to handle the Ak-Sar-Ben
crowds with great rapidity as soon
as the parades pass over the streets
this week. All of the old cars have
been run through the local shops
and have been put in good condition
for service. With these the new
cars that have gone into service
since last fall and the regular equip
ment, officials feel that they are bet
ter prepared than ever before to
move people off the streets.
In handling the crowds after the
parades pass, practically the same
methods will be pursued as in for
mer years. As many cars as possi
ble will be laid in on switches in
the down-town section and these
will be the first out. Then cars
will be brought in from the switches
farther out, aud, in this way it is
figured that it will be possible to
clear the streets inside of half an
hour after any parade has passed.
Alien Enemy Wojmen Must
Register with U.S. Marshal
All alien enemy women in Omaha j
who live or are employed any place
within a half-mile radius of Fort
Omaha or Fort Crook or the army
supply depot must apply for a spe
cial permit at the United States
marshal's office before October 5.
Failure to observe this regulation
is punishable by arrest and intern
ment for the period of the war.
This new precaution is a part of
President Wilson's last proclama
tion concerning alien enemies.
Danish Brotherhood v

BETTER THAN CALOMEL
Thousands Have Discovered
Dr. Edwards' Oilve Tablets
Are a Harmless Substitute.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets the
substitute for calomel are a mild
but sure laxative, and their effect
on the liver is almost instantaneous.
They are the result of Dr. Edwards'
determination not to treat liver and
bowel complaints with calomel. His
efforts to banish it brought out
these little olive colored tablets.
These pleasant little tablets do the
good that calomel does, but have no
bad after effects. They don't in
jure the teeth like strong liquids or
calomel. They take hold of the trou
ble and quickly correct it. Why cure
the liver at the expense of the
teeth? Calomel sometimes plays
havoc with the gums. So do strong
liquids. It is best not to take calo
mel, but to let Dr. Edwards' Olive
Tablets take its place.
Most headaches, "dullness" and
that lazy feeling come from consti
pation and a disordered liver. Take
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets when
you feel "lqggy" and "heavy." Note
how they "clear" clouded brain and
how they "perk up" the spirits. 10c

We come to another big task. This time
we need not call for helpers. The volunteer
workers stream in myriad hosts along the
main highway leading to victory and vin
dication. All patriots, by confession.
The grumblers are awed into silence. If
the taint of disloyalty remains anywhere it is
hidden as a shameful secret. The heads are
wagging and we hear many old assurances:
'Til do all I can." -
"I'll go as far as the next fellow."
'Til take all I can afford to take.'
We are speaking, of course, of the Fourth
Liberty Loan and the willingness of the war
backers to subscribe.
This time we do not explain a Liberty Loan
and how it works, or why we battle with Ger
many, or that a war costs money. It will just
about require a search-warrant to find a man
who does not say that he will take all the bonds
he can "afford" to take.
