Hair is by far the most conspic

bly the most easily damaged by bad
or careless treatment If we are
N very careful in hair washing, we
will have virtually no hair troubles.
An especially fine shampoo for this
weather, one that brings out all the
natural beauty of the hair; that dis-
solves and entirely amoves all dan
j rfruff, excess oil and dirt; can easily
s-. be used at trifling expense by sim
i ply dissolving a teaspoonful of
Canthrox (which you can get at any
? druggist's) in a cup of hot water.
. This makes a full cup of shampoo
i liquid enough so it is easy to apply
it to all the hair instead of just the
S top , of the head. This chemically
dissolves all impurities and creates
i a soothing, cooling lather. Rinsing
i leaves the scalp spotlessly clean,
soft and pliant, while the hair takes
t on the glossy richness of natural
color, abo a fluffiness which makes
V it seem much heavier than it is.

Increase Traffic Moved With
Smaller Number of ars
Than Last Year; Make
Financial Saving."
Hale Holden, regional director of
the lines of railroad operating in the
central zone, has compiled his re-,
port for September of this year and
has submitted the same to V. G.
McAdoo, director general. This re
port goes into detail as to the busi
ness of the several railroads during
the month and indicates that traffic
was better than normal and entirely
The "Sailing day" plan, adopted
for the purpose of expediting Jhe
movement of freight and at the same
I was cured of this C0BRmc conserving equipment, was re
ported a success. Mr. ttoiaen as
serts that there has been a saving
of 3,429 freight cars per weekwithm
the limits of the central rone. At
the same time there has been an in
creased loading in the regions
where coal, livey stock and grain is
produced. The increase in the live
stock loading is about 19 per cent.
The total freight cars loaded dur
ing September were 164,342, as com
pared with 142,299 for September of
last year, an increase of 22,043,
equivalent to a gain of 1S.5 per cent.
Of the total number, this year jj,05
cars were loaaea witn grain, as
as against 27,402 during the same
month of last year.
Up to the middle of September
there was a heavy movement of
grain and had there sbeen an avail
able outlet the probabilities are that
it would have been a record month.
As it was, about the middle of the
month the elevator capacitj of the
country was , exhausted and conse
quently "the movement of grain
ceased until cxportations and the
dem&iMM of Hue millers reduced the
surplus in storage.
. Mr. Holden finds that the car sup
ply is about adequate to meet the
requirements, witls the exception of
double-deckers for the sfeeial load
ing of some kinds of live stock. The
shortage in this class of equipment
has proved no handicap as stock has
been moved as rapidly as the stock
yards companies could handle it. In
some instances the railroads have
been forced 4o hold back stock ship
ments because the yard companies
could not handle them.
The South Omaha stock yards are
credited with having made a good
showing, during September. Dur
ing the month there were 14,040 in
bound cars of live stock, an increase
of 3,506. or 33.3 per cent. The out
bound business aggregated 7,243
cars, an increase of 1,243, or 20 per
cent. ' '
Oil traffic was an important item
with the roads in the central zone.
During the month the roads han
dled 516 oil trains, with 14,319 cars
In September of this year W.585
carloads of coal were handled, com
pared with 146,302 during the corre
sponding month a year go. The
increase was 18 per cent.
According to Mr. Holden coal has
been going forward at such a rapid
rate that the fuel administration
been pressed to provide markets for
the shipments. Railr6ac officials
and the fuel administration have co
operated and worked in such perfect
harmony that it is believed the fuel
situation is well in hand.
Mr. Holden is of the opinion that
the labor situation is improving and
the increase in the number of em
ployees in the mechanical depart
ments of the roads is encouraging.
curing aeptemoer ot this year the
roads of the central rone- in the
car and locomotive department
were giving employment to 88,940.

that is unsatisfactory. There is a
shortage of several millions, but the
matter has been called to the atten
ion of the central purchasing com
mittee and immediate relief is anticipated.
By giving special attention to
routing, during the month 492,714
car-miles were eliminated.
The passenger traffic of the roads
of the central zone, shows an enorj
mous saving by the consolidation or
offices. He points out that uo to
September 1. this vear 21 consoli
dated ticket offices had been opened
in the centra zone and that it is
estimated that these consolidations
will result in an annual saving of
.$378,059.15 in rent and $188,919.37
in salaries and other expenses.
During the month, in the move
ment of troops, the roads moved 73
special trains, carrying 26,766 men.
All vains were operated on schedule
and without accident
Mr. Holden points with pride to
the result of the recent Liberty
loan campaign, saying that up to
the time of handing his report to

Best City Between New York
and 'Frisco, is Opinion of
Watertown (N.Y.) Man
Printed in Home Paper.
Charles R. Skinner of Watertown,
N. Y., recently grew restless and de
cided upon a vacation trip. In the
Daily Tvimes, of that city.e tells
of his travels and devotes a large
part of his story to his visit in Oma
ha. In part he said:
"What do I think of Omaha? It
is one of the finest cities between
New York and San Francisco. 1 here
is evidence of enterprise, prosperity
and public spirit They tell me that
every one in Nebraska is ncn or
expects to be wants to be. There
is an uto for every four people in
the state. Week-end trfps to Kan
sas City, 250' miles and Chicago,
500 miles, are said to be common.
All the great railroads of the west
center here. One trlley line ex
tends 14 , miles without a break.
Fine buildings abound, and there
are great stores both above and be
low the ground. They cling to 5
cent fare on the trolleys, and n
you want a 10 cent shave or a 15
cent haircut, you can have them
by taking a trip to Omaha.
"And the stock yards They are
a city by itself. They make an east
erner open his eyes. Hundreds or
miles of railroad tracks, thousands
of stock pens scattered over (hun
dreds of acres, with cattle, sheep
and hogs, make up this cityt Ele
vated walks give extended views of
the great place. You see long,
driveways leading to the shipping
house and slaughter pens, and they
are filled with endless droves. One
does not care to see the slaughter,
and strangers are forbidden since
the war. Porter-house steaks, lamb
chops ana" ham all around you, but
all on foot. You count until you
reach 6,000,000,000 (the loan limit)
and then you estimate the rest.
"One man was looking for six lost
sheep among 150.000! An attendant
bound for home was carrying some-
thine alive in a bag. It was a pig
which he had rescued from destruc-J
tion in one of the pens, where thou
sands of "porkers" crush the lives
out of "little families" which happen
to arrive, either on the way or in
the pens. , .
"There was a loan drive in prog
ress, with handsome girls selling
bonds a" big war tank , moving up
and down the street. They did not
need to fire guns to attract atten
tion. A colored war map 4U teet
square hung from one of the buijd
ines. You could almost distinguish'

enthusiasm for war only. I did not
hear politics mentioned. Offe little

Man Ships Carload to Kansas
City and Gets Four Hundred
and Fifty Dollars More .
Than Best Bid Here.
Numerous reports of profiteering
in potatoes by the middle men or
commission firms of Omaha have
come -to the food administration re
cently and an investigation is now
under way. One instance is given
of a farmer from out in the state
who shipped a car load of potatoes
to the Omaha market. He received
a number of bids from the commis
sion men, but they were all so low
that he refused to accept any of
them.Jput reshipped his car to the
Kansas City market, where he re
ceived $45jL) more for the carload
than his best bid here.
Pay 60 to 80 Cents.
It is claimed that commission men
are stouring the potato growing sec
tions of the northern and western
part of the state, makingvcontracts
with the growers. In numerous in
stances they purchase the potatoes
at from 60 Cents to 80 cents a bushel
f. o. b. Omaha. Prices to retailers
here in the city are said to range
from $1.40 to $1.50, leaving the com
mission men 70 to 80 cents a bushel
The commission men contend that
in sejling the potatoes at the pres
ent prices asked, they are still un
der, the price set by the price fixing
committee, and are not violating
the rules of the food administra
tion. The officials of the food admin
istration say that the retail grocers
are' living iip to the rules in all in
stances. The best grades are re
tailing as low as 38 cents a peck
or $1.50 a bushel. This leaves the
large share of the profit for the
commission firms, and forces the
retailers to sell at a very small mar
gin. Officials of the food administra
tion maintain that the commission
men are entitled to only a rason-
lible profit, regardless of the prices
set by the administration, and if
the investigations now under way
show that the above statements are
correct, a way will be found to deal
with the profiteers.

Of Acid-Sto
There are any number of people who for years
have been sick and ailing, weak, run down and in
a poor physical condition who will be surprised
even dumbfounded to learn that their trouble has
just been an acid-stomach, which is mereJy another
name for what doctors call superacidity. Yet it is
now positively known that acid-stomach is the
cause of a very large number of diseases. ,
Excess acid in the stomach pvents proper
digestion and assimilation, thus causing the blood
to bf come thin and impoverished, as a result of
which people become sallow-skinned, emaciated and
Excess acid causes irritation all along the intes
tinal tract irritation so severe and aggravating as
to frequently result in catarrh and even cancer of
the stomach. . s
Excess acid causes stomach and intestinal fer
mentation, producing poisons which, absorbed into
the blood and carried throughout the system, cause
auto-intoxication, insomnia, nervousness, irritabil
ity, mental depression, melancholia, dizziness, ver
tigo and. often times, valvular heart trouble and
heart failure.
Yes, many people will be gratly surprised tc
learn that such a long train of physical ailments can
be traced directly to an acid-stomach. Put there
is no need for surprise. Think what acid mouth
does to the teeth. The acid eats right through the
enamel the hardest substance in the human body.
And that is exactly what makes teeth rot and de
cayT No wonder, then, that excess acid in the
stomach plays such havoc; causes so much Ul
health and misery makes so many people weak
and ailing unfit foreither work or pleasure and
brings on premature old age.
So often you have heard the remark : "I've taken
all sorts of tonics and medicines and tried many
dtferent doctors but nothing seems to help me."
Njpe times out of ten the person making such a
remark has an acid-stomach And until the excess
acidtS removed, nothing WILL help. Remove that
excess acid and the results are truly wonderful.
Health and strength return almost like magic.
You can now rid your stomach of its excess acid.
A wonderful modern medicine called EATONIC
literally wipes it out. It does the work easily,

will claim you as a victim.
Kidney disease is usually indicated -by
weariness, sleeplessness, nervousness, de
spondency, backache, stomach trouble,
difficulty when urinating, pain in loins and
lower' abdomen, gall stones, gravel, rheu
matism, sciatica and lumbago.
All these derangements are nature's sig
nals to warn you that the kidneys need
help. You should use GOLD . MEDAL

this country has had five epidemics,
the last in 1889-90.
