While Change of Life is a moBt crit ical period of a woman's existence, the annoying symptoms which accompany it may be controlled, and normal health restored by the timely use of Lydia E.

Moreover this reliable remedy con tains no narcotics or harmful drugs and owes its efficiency to the medicinal ex tractives of the native roots and herbs which it contains.

To political observers, the real sur prise of the Illinois Republican pri mary was the large number' of 'writ-ten-in" ballots for Johnson. The only names printed on the ballots were those of Lowden and Wood, but re turns showed that Johnson, who had made no campaign in Illinois, had polled about 40,000 votes. The name oC Herbert Hoover lso was written-in on some Republican ballots. None of the Democratic candidates were entered in the Illinois primary and that state's fifty-eight delegates joined the already largo numbeY of un instructed delegations. Nebraska and Georgia Next. The next primaries are those of Ne braska and Georgia, which will be held April 20. Both Republicans and Democrats vote in the former state, in which sixteen delegates each are in volved. Supporters of Gen. John J. Pershing claim he will win the Re publican endorsement. Johnson is now campaigning there. The Demo crats alone will contest for Georgia's twenty-eight delegates. The Republicans- held a state convention tHere last week at which rival delegations were elected. The national convention must decide whether the Wood or Lowden dele gates will be seated. The Hoover for President union, re cently formed here as a "nonpartisan organization." has announced plans for circulating petitions to obtain one million signatures of men and women pledging their votes to Hoover.

WILL FIX WAGES Wheat Growers of Kansas Called Into Conference As High as $7.50 Per Day Paid Last Year Expect Hike. Weekly Gun Shoots a Benefit to Health of Business Men Here Manhattan. Kan., April 17. A wheat harvest labor conference has been called to meet at Hutchinson Monday, May . 3, for the purpose of discussing the advisability of Betting a standard wage. Other matters relat ing to the harvest labor problem will be brought up at the conference. The meeting was called by Senator A. L. Lupper thru the medium of the ex tension division of the Kansas State Agricultural college. Kvery agricultural organization in each county of the state is invited to send at least one renresentative. but the voting will be by county units, the! voting strength being determined by the acreage of wheat in each county. The standard wage set last year was n ranta on Vn-.nr- 4V rt in.hniitt H a r with txtra time for overtime. Records ! in the county agent leader's office here indicate, however, that as high as 57.50 was the average daily wage for a few counties in the central west ern part of the state, while as low as $3.50 a day was paid in a few eastern and western counties. The other counties fluctuated between these two extremes. In one community the high mark of $15 a day was reached. An effort will be made to iron out these difficulties at the coming con ference. Kansas City employment bu reaus quote common labor B to 7 cents higher this year than last, in dicating that a higher standard har vest labor wage may have to be agreed upon by wheat growers. .

Golf, gun clubs, baseball, (ormnasium work, tennis, and other forms of outdoor sport are taking up a. bit of their time and add ing to their health and happiness. The Topeka Gun club was started about five years ago. During the war it almost died out. Since the signing of the armistice, the club has showed considerable life. At present the club is holding a weekly shoot each Tues day afternoon on their range located on the property of the late A. C. Pot ter, about two blocks from the end of the California avenue car line, out in Highland Park. The club now has thirty-seven mem bers. According- to A. R. Springer, secretary, a number of Topeka men have signified their intention of Join ing the club and a number of others are becoming interested thru the hold ing of Beginners shoots. At these events they have an opportunity to start out on a par with other inex perienced shotgun manipulators. They have a little club house Just back of where the shooters stand. It is inexpensive, costing only about $400, but it is entirely adequate to the needs of the club. A large shelter porch runs partly around the building. Inside the building it is one large room. A fireplace is constructed on one side. The room is used partly for storing supplies and as a shelter. Shooting in cold weather contestants go in by the fire to warm up. A large window on the side toward the traps permits them to watch the other shooters. Vse Good Guns. Clay bird breakers stand sixteen yards back of the traps from which the discs are hurled into the air. They have a perfect light back of them In the afternoon as shooting is done to ward the east. Experienced men, Springer says, usually rack down on their birds at a distance of about forty yards from the point at which they are standing. Twelve gauge snot guns are used. Many of the members are using specially constructed shot guns, single barrel, hammerless, with a ventilated ribbing on top the barrel to assist in keeping he gun cool, similar to the ribbing on machine guns. A gun of this sort may be purchased at any figure between J100 and $1,000. The higher cost is not in increased effi ciency of the piece so' much as in its ornateness and expensive mounting, Accurate, serviceable guns may be purchased cheaper. There was a day when any old mus ket was considered all right. More science is used now in fitting the right gun to the right man. The length of the stock is considered. The modern tendency. Spriager points out, is to ward guns with very little "drop." that is, the barrel comes nearer forming a straight line with the stock. The clay birds cost about J 8 per thousand. The cost on the grounds is about a cent ' and three-quarters each. Supplies of shells may be ob tained at the club house. A state shoot is to be held at Win- field May 4. A number of Topeka srun Artists are nlannin&r to attend the I event. This sort of weather brings colds and gripped If it's jnsfc a common cold people say, "ther&s no danger in that !

'DOPE' SOLD IN TOPEKA Keferoes Implicate Gays in Purchase of Xarcotics. The "bottoms" figured in another scandal in Topeka. Friday afternoon when Lew Kirkpatrick and Elizabeth King, negroes, faced Acting Police Judge J. D. M. Hamilton, confessed they were dope fiends and told the judge the drugs were purchased at Oscar Gay's place, 108 Jefferson street. The King woman told the judge that she purchased morphine and cocaine from- Susie. Carter and Frank Carter and from Gay himself. Continuing the woman stated that Thelma Williams was in Kansas City at this time getting a supply of drugs for the drug addicts of the "bottoms." She named "Dutch" Goggins as an other dealer in drugs. i Judge Hamilton immediately noti fied the police and went with officers on a raid on the Gay place. Carter and his wife, Oscar Gay and Cassius SKaggs were captured. The officers making the raid Were Police Lieut. Frank Summers. Chief of Detectives Clyde Tresner, Patrolman Abner Tay lor and i,ee coberiy, driver of the police car- A report of the woman's testimony was given to the "United States mar shal's office and an inspection of the alleged drug fence may follow.

That registration is a terrible proc ess, not to be undertaken unless neces sary, seems to be the opinion of many Topekans, to judge by the rate at which they are now registering. As a matter of fact, the process of becoming a qualified voter takes less than one minute. One gives his name, age, place of birth, whether married or single and la then given a registra tion certificate entitling him to vote at the primaries next summer.
