Establishes 8-Hour Day. After are
markably steady run throughout the
manufacturing season, the Deere &
Mansur company has established an
8-hour workday in all departments of
its plant, and this policy will probably
be maintained till the plant is closed
for the annual Inventory late in June.
The workday will be between the
hours of 7 a. m. and 4 p. m. The corn
planter shop has maintained a good
record throughout the period of busi
ness depression, operating the shops
constantly . om a 10-hour basis since
work was. resumed last fall following
the usual inventory. In some depart
ments the men were employed as high
as 12 hours a day at different times
when there was extra demand on the
stock. The total output ranges close
to that of more prosperous years, and
on some lines the output quite met
that of the best years in the company's
history. About COO men are affected
by the reduced workday.
May Close Wednesday Evenings.
It is quite probable that within a short

after May" 1 their markets will not be
opened -after C:30 on Wednesday
nights. Tuesday night at the quarter

Club Drops Boys. An amendment to
the by-laws fixing the minimum age
limit at 21 years was adopted by the

minimum age has been 18 years, and
many of the high school boys availed
themselves of the opportunity to join
the club. With the approach of the
club membership to the point where a
waiting list will be established, it was
deemed wisest to make a change in
the minimum age. The resident mem
bership today Is about 250, and a wait
ing list will be established when the
club includes 300 members. The di
rectors also made arrangements for
the annual club election May 12.

, FORTY YEARS
.. When a medicine has stood the test for a period of more than two gen
erations and is then more popular than ever, there can be no doubt of its
merit. This is the record of S. S. S. Its period of existecce is marked by a
long line of cures of blood and skin diseases of every character, and its value
in the treatment of such troubles has become so well known that it is today
the most extensively used blood medicine on the market. For Rheumatism,
Catarrh, drofula, Sores and-Ulcers, Skin Diseases and all other troubles
due to an impure or poisoned condition of the blood, S. S. S. has no equal.
It counteracts and drives out the poisons, humors and germs, cleanses the
system of all unhealthy matter, cures the disease permanently and restores
strong, robust health. Where the blood is weak or anaemic, and unable to
furnish the body with the nourishment and strength it needs, S. S. S. sup
plies it with the healthful properties and acts splendidly in toning up and .
reinvigorating the system. It goes down to the very bottom of all blood
disorders, and in this way reaches inherited taints on which the ordinary
blood medicines have no effect. Not only is S. S. S. certain in its results,
but it is at the same time an absolutely safe remedy. It is made entirely of
roots, herbs and barks of known healing and curative value. It does not
contain the slightest trace of mineral in any form to damage the delicate
parts of the system, and may be used by children with the same good results
and perfect safety as by olde; people. It is not an experiment to use S. S. S.;
it is a remedy with a record and one that has proven its worth by its forty
years of successful service. If you are in need of a blood purifier for any
cause begin the use of S. S. S., write our physicians and they will send you
a book concerning your trouble, and will give without charge any special
medical advice that is required.
