Method a Guarantee of Age,
Purity and Strength.
Malt is well said to be "the soul of
beer." I is the life- the vitality, the
substance of the beer, and perfect beer
is possible only with perfect malt.
Though pet-feet malt Is an absolute
essential, no brewer, even with perfect
malt, can make pure, high quality,
wholesome beer without pure water,

all managed by experienced brew-mas

Pabst for sixty years has been the
pioneer in perfecting the processes of
brewing along the most highly devel
oped scientific lines, and today he
leads In the manufacture of the purest
and best beer because he never rests
in his studies and researches, never
spares expense to make the best.
Pabst Beer is made omy from eight
day malt This means that Pabst Beer
contains the highest amount of nutri
tion obtainable out of malt. The ex
clusive Pabst eight-day method in
sures more invigorating extractives
than are found in any other malt.
This, coupled with 60 years of practical
brewing experience, makes Pabst Blue
Ribbon Beer unequalled as a nourish

Next in importance to eight-day
malt is cleanliness, and might very
well say just as important, for not
only is cleanness desirable, but neces

in this again Pabst excels, not only

ONE FEE FOR STUDENTS
Physical Director of South Dakota Uni
versity Has Plan for Relief.
VERMILLION, S. D.A. R. Whittemore, phy
sical director at the university, has submitted
new plans for financing the various student activ
ities the coming year, and If they qan be
worked out the financial stringencies which have
heretofore handicapped every manager will be
relieved The plan is to form a student asso
ciation under faculty supervision, the member
ship fee each year to be $5 This would entitle
the membr to free admission to all athletic
events, debates, lectures, concerts, etc besides
a subscription to the college paper. What it is
proposed to give for $5 under present conditions
costs $10, and those students who now are able
to take in onlj half of the attractions will
then be able to attend everything without an
outlay of more money than they now spend.
There is bat little question of the success of
the scheme if the students will ohly take hold
of the matter with the proper spirit, and the
plan will prove an economical one for the Indi
vidual. In this way if nine-tenths of the stu
dents join the association about $2,000 will bet
received and distiibuted for debates, concerts,
athletics and other student activities which re
quire money. The three athletic teams could
arrange better schedules, the Volante could afford
to give subscriptions on a 90 cent basis, about
$900 could be invested in a lecture course and
the debateis would have about $200, and, after
all expenses for the year were paid, the asso
ciation would still have a snug sum in the
treasury instead of the usual deficit.
I'ebruary was a banner month in the way of
tax collections in the county treasurer's office,
the total amount received exceeding $80,000 This
is by far the largest sum ever taken in by the
county treasurer in one month in Clay county,
and the taxes are so higher this yeai than usual.
It *s evident that the delinquent tax list this
fall will be small. The majority of taxpayers
take advantage of the opportunity to make two
payments, hence the receipts for February repre
sent only half of what the receipts would have
been had it been necessary to pay all at once.

"HUGGER" AT WATERLOO
WATERLOO. IOWA.A roughly clad "man,"
whose head was covered with a big slouch hat,
caused consternation among the women and ex
citement among the men on Independence a\e-
nue for a while last night. As a woman would
pass along the dimly lighted street, she would
be approached by the supposed man, who would
enthusiastically throw his arms about her and
give hed a hug, invariably resulting in a scieam
on the part of the victim. "Jack the Hugger"
stories have been rife of late and after several
women had been hugged a vigilance committee
was formed by-men who had heard of the per
formance, and a systematic seal eh was made
for the supposed "hugger." Just as the posse
was about to effect a capture, one who had
just joined In the search took the leader of
the vigilantees aside and whispered In his ear.
The leader smiled broadly and called the search
off. It developed that a woman, said to be
prominent socially and highly respected, had
donned male attire for the purpose of having
some fun at the expense of some of ber feminine
friends, and had succeeded so well that she
nearly landed In the lockup. The Identity of the
woman is carefully concealed.

nothing else had done. Soon I could

more nourishment. In two weeks I was
able to leave my bed. Dr. Williams'

checked the vomiting and as soon as that
