A YAWN AND A STRETCH. ,
Thy Help th Nerves and Muscles and
Rest the Whole Body.
Hid yon know that a good. wide,
open mouthed yawn Is a sp'endld thing
for your whole body? This Is the opin
ion of an Ennih hygieDlst
It is ore of nature s most evident de
mands for a rest. Some people think
they yawn because they are sleepy.
But that Is not so They yawn be
cause they are tired. They may be
sleeky, too. but that is not the real
rsnse of the!r yawnlnjr. Ton . are
sleepy befiue you are tired, and you
ytwn because you are tired.
Whenever yon feel like yawning Jest
go ahead and yawn. Don't try to sup
press It nnlesa you are out In very
formal society, where your hostess
would be grieved.
If you can stretch at the same time
that yon yawn do that. too. for It Is
another way of nature's stretching and
relaxing the muscles Indeed. If yon
are very tired snd do not feel like
yswnlng there is nothing that will rest
yon so quickly ss to sit on a straight
backed chair and lift the feet from the
fluor. push them out in front of yon as
far ss pos1l.!e. stretch out the arms
od pnt the head back.
Then opeo the month and make your
self yawn. Tour tense nerves will re
lax, the contracted muscles will stretch,
and the whole body will be rested.

Senator-elect Speaks at Chi
cago Club on Eve of Leav
ing for Capital.
Chicago, April 14. "I affirm as my
creed, as I go to the discharge of your
trust and to the performance of my
duties, that ln matters where the peo
ple have not had occasion to declare
their wishes the representative should
use his Judgment, guided by his sense
of solemn obligation to his fellow man
and hlB rsponsibllity to God."
Thus did James Hamilton Lewis,
United States senator-elect from Illi
nois, sum up his political faith Sat
urday night to members and guests of
the Iroquois club at the Hotel La Salle.
It wag the first public utterance of
the new senator since his election by
the legislature to the long term at
Washington to succeed Shelby M. Cul
lom. Senator Lewis declared himself in
accord with the progressive policies of
the times and affirmed his allegiance
to President Wilson. The demand ot
the people for the Initiative and refer
endum, the recall of Judges and direct
election of senators he described as
their protest against continued be
trayal by their representatives in leg
islative and official positions.
"Had the systems provided by the
fathers been obeyed in the spirit as
was intended there would have been
no need for these Innovations," he said.
"ruin is the truth that there is noth
ing wrong in the machinery created by
the fathers. The wrong has been in
Colonel Lewis described the ills of
the body politic as not new difficul
ties. He recited the governmental
troubles of the first republic and de
clared tnat iney were similar to those
"We went back to the Institutions
under Athlestane, king of Kent, in
England, to reproduce the Initiative
and referendum upon modern Ameri
ca," he concluded. "We went back
to the demand of the Grecchl ln Rome
in order to remove the debasement ln
the election of United States senators
and there are those who demand
that we revive the custom of the Ro
man republic when it recalled Valerius
from his Judicial position, that we may
have ln the modern Institutions of
America some remedy for the same
evils that disgraced the first republic."
The senator-elect decried the teach
ing of class hatred ln America, but
warned against a too satisfied security
that might cause the people to Ignore
the real situation.

1 00. Famous Hoosiers $1.00 (
Club Opens Tuesday Morning
'At last the Hoosiers are here! For months we've been trying to get permission to organize this IToosicr Club.
Women all over town have been waiting patiently. i ,
Our opportunity has arrived. You and a few other women who come early can own a Hoosier Kitchen
Cabinet on payment of $1.00. You can have it delivered at once to use and enjoy, just by joining our Hoosier
Kitchen Cabinet Club.
Only $1.00 is the membership fee weekly dues are $1.00. Membership fee and weekly dues both apply to
the price of your cabinet there are no other payments you pay not a penny extra by joining.
Furthermore, this club is under the direct supervision of The Hoosier Manufacturing Company who fixes
standard low price of Hoosier Cabinets the world over a low price made possible by low cost of manufacture
from enormous sales. " -
Seize your great chance to own a Hoosier upon terms so easy that you never know how you paid for it. x ,
Memberships are limited. Many will be disappointed as last year. Be early and those who wait will call
you lucky. The Hoosier Company could allow us enough Hoosier Cabinets to supply
Only 100 Hoosier Club
As the announcement of the opening of the Hoosier Club Is the signal
for membership applications to pour in, a prompt visit to our store is
your only insurance against disappointment.
Is It not folly to go without the Hoosier when you can get It on
payment of $1.00 and pay for It at the rate of 14 cents a day? Why de
lay? Can you hesitate? Ownership means cooking made easy, and
hours saved for rest and recreation.
It means a pleasant kitchen, orderly and peaceful, and the constant
satisfaction of comfortable and convenient working conditions.
Made of handsome, sturdy oak, finished perfectly by skilled master
cabinet makers, the Hoosier Is a piece of furniture that ornaments your
borne. It stands far above all other kitchen furniture of any name.
Saves Miles of Steps-Hours of
Time-Hours of Weary Standing
Tired feet, backache, weariness and oldtlme discouragement become
things of the past the moment a Hoosier comes Into your kitchen.
It stops the miles of useless steps that old-fashioned kitchen ar
rangements require it stops the weary walking back and forth between
pantry and cupboard and kitchen table getting things out and putting
them away again. Instead of standing and walking all day doing
your work, you sit down and reach the things you want. No more ach
ing feet and broken backs. j
The hours you save ln time give you a chance to do the things you
want to do, keep you rested enable you to be contented and happy.
Think how quickly these few Hoosiers will be taken, and come in Tuesp
day Morning Early and enroll yourself on our club list. You know In
your heart how you hate the eternal drudgery part of kitchen work.
Banish It forever. Now!

HEARS OF DANCES
Chicago, AJril 14. Opinions that
the "Turkey trot," "Tango" and sim
ilar dances were "Just what people
made them," were expressed by wit
nesses before the Illinois vice com
mission today. Asked if be considered
such dances an art, Roy Jones, whose
license was revoked for permitting
them in his place, said: "Well, they
are artful if not art. It depends large
ly on what people make them."
Police Sergeant Boiler testified he
talked to 500 girls ln the "red light''
"All sorts of reasons were given by
them for their downfall," eald Boiler.
"Hasty marriage, love of fine clothes,
dislike of work for small pay, were
all mentioned, but the commonest rea:
son was poverty."
Whether vice flourishes ln Chicago
through the payment of "protection
money" to public officials is to be in
vestigated by the Illinois vice com
mission. In thin connection Chair
man O'llara said: "If It 1b true poli
tics and vice work together in Chi-
j cago, the public shall hear it. We will
bring out all the facts, If there are
