ARMY IN FRANCE
ON PEACE BASIS
Commander in Chief Faced by
Task of Checking Flow of
Vast Stock of -Supplies'.
Faris, Nov. General Pershing
issued orders after the signing of
the armistice with Germany for the
prompt reduction of the extensive
system for purchasing supplies for
the United States army in Europe
and for speedy transition to a peace
basis. Acting on this order, military
authorities have given notice of can
cellation of contract so far as possi
ble with a view to diminshing rapid
ly the inflowing stock of supplies re
quired for an ormy of 2,000,000 men.
An officer who has had much to do
with this branch of the seYvice sums
up the situation as follows:
Was at Top Speed.
"The American- expeditionary
force on November 11 was travel
ing at full speed ahead and was at
the height of its supply activity. To
reverse this tremendous business
machine is thetask upon which it
is now engaged and the efficiency
of its business organization is be
ing manifested in its quick accom
modation to entirely changed cir
cumstances. "When the American forces first
began coming to France there was
a great scarcity of ocean tonnage.
It was impossible for many months
to ship more than 300,000 or 400,000
tons of supplies to the forces, not
withstanding the great necessity for
engineering and general construc
tion equipment. Search for mater
ial in Europe, therefore, hadto be
conducted with the greatest possible
energy over a wide field.
Has Agencies Everywhere.
. "The American army established
agencies in all allied and neutral
countries under a general purchas
ing agent. '
"More than 10,000,000 tons of ma
terial for the . expeditionary forces
was secured., on this side of the
ocean. To have transported this
material from America would have

FREE TURKEY OFFER
Palace Clothing Co.
Swamped With Requests-
New Shipment Just Re
ceived to Take Care of
I Big Demand.
That Thanksgiving day in
Omaha will be celebrated by the
eating of turkey is now an as
sured fact. All day Saturday a
stream of men, womenvand boys
poured into the Palace Clothing
Co. store at 14th and Douglas
streets to take advantage of the
opportunity to obtain a free tur
key for Thanksgiving. ,
today the crowd continued
with undiminished numbers.
Eager purchasers after obtaining
their suit or overcoat selected
their turkey and many of them
departed with two or more hand
some birds. ,
The success with which the of
fer was met has induced the
management to purchase an
other shipment of big fat turkeys
in order not to disappoint the
hundreds' who are coming to the
store on Tuesday and Wednes
day. The ' offer closes on
Palace quality suits and over
coats at $20.00 are without
question the acme of perfection
in clothing. These garments havej
been the talk of Omaha this fall.
The unusual quality and excel
lent values have caused much
comment in View of the scarcity
of merchandise throughout the
country. When an opportunity is
offered to obtain one of these
suits or overcoats and a turkey
free at the same time the Oma
ha public is quick to take ad
vantage of the offer. ,
The management of the store
urges their patrons not to wait
until the last minute before se
curing one of these turkeys, as
they are going very fast. These
big, finef cornfed turkeys are
now on exhibition vin the Palace
Clothing Company's windows,

Hair is by far the most conspic
uous thing about us and is probably
the most easily damaged by bad or
careless treatment. If we are 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 removes all dan
druff, excess oil and dirt, can easily
be used at trifling expense by sim
ply dissolving a teasponful of Can
throx (which you can" get at any
druggist's), in a cup of hot water.
This makes a full cup of shampoo
liquid, enough so it is easy to appl
it to all the hair instead, of just the
top xf the head. This' chemically
dissolves all impurities and creates
a soothing, cooling lather. Rinsing
leaves the scalp spotlessly clean, soft
and pliant, while the hair takes on
the glossy richness of natural color,
also a fluffiness 'which makes it
seem much heavier than it is. After
canthrox shampoo, arranging the
hair is a pleasure. Adv.
QUIT MEAT WHEN
Take a glass of Salts Before
breakfast if your Back hurts
or Bladder, is troubling
No man or woman who eats meat
regularly can make a mistake by
flushing, the kidneys occasionally,
says a well-known authority. Meat
forms uric acid which excites the
kidneys, they become over-worked
from the strain, get sluggish and
fail to filter the waste and poisons
from the blood, then we get sick.
Nearly all rheumatism, headaches,
liver trouble, nervousness, dizziness,
sleeplessness and urinary disorders
come from sluggish kidneys.
The moment you feel a dull ache
in the kidneys or your back hurts or
if the urine is cloudy, affensive, full
of sediment, irregular of passage or
attended by a sensation of scalding,
stop eating meat and get about four
ounces of Jad Salts from any phar
macy; take a tablespoonful in a
glass of water before breakfast and
in a few dts your kjdneys will act
fine. This famous salts is made
from the acid of grapesand lemon
juice, combined with litma, and has
been used for generations to flush
and stimulate the kidneys, also to
neutralize he acids in urine so it
no longer causes irritation, thus end
ing bladder weakness.
Jad Salts is inexpensive and can
not injure: makes a delightfdl ef
fervescent lithia-water drink which
everyone should take now and then
to keep the kidneys clean and active
and the blood pure, thereby avoid
ing serious kidney complications.
