'What Topeka. merchants and manu facturers have to offer Topeka high school students in the way of vacation or permanent employment is the ob ject of a survey being conducted by students of the economics classes of the high school under the direction of J. F. Kaho, economics instructor and vocational training adviser. "Many boys and girls of Topeka are anxious to find a place to work in some of the institutions and industries of their home city' when 'they have completed their education in the pub lic schools." Kaho said today. 4,The high school vocational department is trying to obtain as accurate informa tion p.s possible about the industries in Topeka to present to the pupils of the elementary and high schools in order that they may appreciate the oppor tunities offered them in their home city. Student Committee Investigates. v The method of the survey is by questionnaires being distributed to the places of business by committee of students from the economics classes. The questionnaires ask statements re lating to age. training and other quali fications of applicants for positions in the various places of business, for sug gestions from the business men as to the most practical training the schools can give, and the possible number of Safe MiSk For Infants Se Invalids No Caokiof A Nutritious Diet for All Ages Quick Lunch at Home or Office Avoid Imitations and Substitutes A $5 Reduction si- all A-B DURING G SIS Range By special arrangement with the A-B Stove Company, we are enabled to make a $5.00 reduction from regular prices on al!

Mo. "At the time I started taking Tan lac I was on the verge of a complete breakdown and was in pain and suf fering Just about all the time. I had rheumatism all over my body and my shoulders, arms, legs and ankles pained me especially. My arms hurt so bad I could not get either hand to my head and my shoulders and back pained me every time I moved. My legs hurt all the way down to the an kles and my joints were so stiff and sore I could hardly walk. My kidneys were badly disordered and bothered me consta tly day and night. Then, too, I suffered awfully with indiges tion and had about lost my appetite. Nothing I ate seemed to agree with me but would sour on my stomach, causing: gas and bloating. I beeame very nervous, my complexion turned yellow and I was growing worse rap idly. ' But a few weeks ago I started tak ing Tanlac and right then a change for the better took place in my con dition. The rheumatism began leav ing me and in a short time I was able to walk without being in pain and could use my arms freely. I continued ta improve until now I hardly know what it means to have an ache or pain or any kind. My digestion is perfect and I have a fine appetite and enjoy everything I eat. My kidneys and nerves are also in splendid condition and my complexion has all cleared up. I have been built up wonderful ly and can now do my housework with the greatest ease. I don't hesitate to recommend Tanlac for it has been a godsend to me." Tanlac is sold in Topeka by Tully MoFarland Drug Co., S3p Kansas Ave. and 729 Kansas Ave. Adv. SAGE TEA DARKENS HAIR TOAHY SHADE Don't Stay Gray ! Here's an Old time Recipe that Any body can Apply. Hun Troops Leave the Ruhr. Berlin. May 7. Bavarian troops which have jbern in the Ruhr basin have been wltftdrawn. according to the Nord Deutsche Allegemine Zei tung. The Prussian assemblv has adopted proposals for the creation of local guards which will be connected with the state police. J TO THE f THEATUfS-f That's The WRY I fEEL ABOUT IT. The use of Sage and Sulphur for re storing faded, gray hair to its natural color dntes back to grandmother's time. She used It to keep her hair beautifully dark, glossy and attractive. Whenever her hair took on that dull, faded or streaked appearance, this simple mixture was applied with won derful effect. But Brewing at home is mussy and out-of-date. Nowadays, by asking at any drug store for a bottle of "Wy eth's Sage and Sulphur 'Compound," you will get this famous old prepara tion, improved by the addition of rfther ingredients, which can be de pended upon to restore natural color and beauty to the hair. A well-known downtown druggist says it darkens the hair so nr turally jand evtnly that nobody can tell it has been applied, iou simply dp.rrnen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one strand at a me. By morning ;he gray hair disappears, and after an other application or two. it becomes beautifully dark and g!ossy. -Adv. Xoveltj-.
