Large Cattle Shipments
Over for the Fall Season
The run of cattle from the range
country of Nebraska, Colorado and
WyouSng, coining to" the Omaha
market is practically over for the
season, though there will be some
scattered shipments until about the
middle of the present month. Rail
road men assert that the business
this fall has been unusually heavy,
due to the high price of beef.
A good many feeders are going
to the feeding lots of Nebraska and
Iowa, but the number is much
smaller than usual, due to the high
price of corn.
The movement of hogs continues,
and, according to the railroad freight
cfiicialSj will not let up until after
the first of the year. Hogs coming
in now are said to be in good con
dition, and due to the fact that the
government has discouraged the
remarketing of animals weighing less
than 150 pounds each, they are
larger as a rule than heretofore.

many different ways. To make .the
papers legally correct, her name ap
pears in tliesr papers as many times
and spelled as differently as it had
in other legal papers held by the
woman, who is now dead.

"Suicide by Inches"
THOUSANDS of. people commit
suicide by inches!
If one should take minute daily
doses of some irritant or poisonous
drug, no particular effect might be
noticed until accumulation of the poi
" son made its action evident
Yet how marjy realize that irritant
and poisonous substances are formed
constantly, even in health, during food
digestion and the preparation of its
waste for elimination?
If the bowels act regularly and thor
oughly, such dangerous matter is
safely gotten rid of.
But if constipation exists, there
results stagnation of intestinal waste,
v increased production of poisonous
substances, and their absorption in
to the blood, whicfi carries them all
over the body.
The result is disease or disorder,
which, if neglected or allowed to
continue, cripples or kills.
The victim of such self-poisoning
commits suicide by inches.
Constipation is a bad habit. It is
a sin against the body.
But there is an even worse habit,
a crime against Nature, the taking
of pills, castor oil, laxative mineral
- waters, and salts to "force the bow
els to move." Because such drugs
do not cure constipation. They
make constipation a habit They
do not prevent "suicide by inches."
On the other hand, the Nujol
Treatment not only overcomes con
stipation, but prevents stagnation ahd
makes self-poisoning impossible.
Nujol is not a drug'does not act
like any drug ; it is absolutely harmless.

daily, thorough, bowel evacuation-
