AB1LEXE WEEKLY REFXECTOlt, AMLNXE, KANSAS, ACG.16 1917
Come In and See This Spreader Work. We announced a short time ago that we have the agency for the Nisco Manure Spreader. We believed at the time that this was the best spreader made, and now, after scores have examined it thoroughly and commented favorably, we are more than ever convinced that we have the ideal spreader the original wide-spreading machine. We want our customers to come in and see this practical, low-down, light-draft spreader. We have it all set up and can put the mechanism in motion just as you'd see it in the field. Perhaps you don't need a spreader. . No matter! Come in Just the same and see the "NUco." Our word for it, you'll be interested anyway. The Jl'ST ODDS AND ENDS. TheTIewldcavy C u. Manure Spreader Stands unique among; spreaders. It puts manure on the soil In the best pos sible condition to furnish necessary plant food. A chain conveyor carries the load to a pair of cylinders, revolving; one over the other, where it is thoroughly pulverized and thrown onto swiftly revolving paddles that dis tribute it evenly over three corn rows. The feed can be easily regulated, 3, 6, 9, 12, IS, 18 loads per acre, or shut off entirely. The Nisco Spreader will carry a big load of manure never clogs, and with reasonable care will last a lifetime. It is the First Wide-Spreading Spreader Ever Built Introduced 17 years ago the first machine to embody this great improve ment wide-spreading. , xur7T" aw THTTPrcTTW: Called "Helping Mother Nature."

Don't mis your copy it's here when you call. M. W. GOUGH, Agent ABILENE, KANSAS Mo. 3 Jay Harding paid $40 for eight li censes. "It is not a square deal for the truck and tractor to pay motor license," he says. "I sold my horses to put in trucks and motor busses. The chance helps the streets rather than hurts them and vehicles used for business ought to be in a differ ent class from the pleasure cars. It is not fair to tax a man for lmprov ing his service." While Abilene is taking moder ateiy to women's overalls it is not expected that the Panama girls' cos tume will become popular until the war is farther along, though they do look comfortable for hot weather. L. E. Moyer, a farmer living Bouth of Chapman, says that two I. W. W workers put stones, in the wheat shocks but were discovered in time to prevent injury to the separator. They were walked to the edge of the farm and told to hike they hiked. Commissioner McCurdy has a most unusual idea for fixingthe pavement. The custom in Kansas towns is to let it go until the holes cover about half the "surface and the population is ready for revolution and then spend a lot of money resurfacing it. He is repairing the holes when they start at a slight cost and instead of mak ing the patches two inches higher than the surrounding surface he is making them level so that the sur face is smooth. This is in violation of all precedent and will make other cities jealous of Abilene- Arthur Elwick kept count of the tourists yesterday as they went thru over the Golden Belt and counted 43 cars that had the marks of travelers. Every tourist spends something here and it is one of the advantages of being on a popular cross state high way. Russia Closes Door to All. San Francisco,' Cal., Aug. 9. Rus sians abroad are now barred from returning home by order of Premier Kerensky, according to a documen received today by the Russian con sulate here. German spies, said to have entered Russia In the guise of returning political exiles, are blamed l:y Kerensky for opposition to tli provisional government and for des ertions from the army on the caster front.

The last robbery occurred on Thursday evening when entrance was made through the west window. They went into the safe and did consider able damage to the interior of it but failed to find only a few pennies. The cash drawer was also broken open but oil they found in this was some stamps. Rock Inland Men Fighters. Iicrington may safely claim the honor of being the "fightinist" rail road town on the Rock Island lines in Kansas. The latest honor roll of employes who have entered military service published today by the com pany, shows thirteen railroad men from Herington have entered either the army or navy. This number Is larger than that shown for any other city in the state. IK( 1DKD WHEAT WAS WOKTH MOKE THAN RENT OF LAND t ord Beemer rented his land to Joseph Baier for 1216. But after .Mr. ilaier had planted some wheat and it was looking mighty fine, Mr. Beem er decided he would rather have the wheat than the rent. He refused to accept the rent offered him and when the wheat was ripe, he proceeded to cut it and sell the grain. He received , 3 H 1 . 1 0 for the wheat and now Mr. llaler demands that the money be turned over to him and has insti tuted a suit.

"About two years ago I had a se vere attack of diarrhoea which last ed over a week," writes W. C. Jonps, Buford, N. D. "I became so weak that I could not stand upright. A druggist recommended Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Rem edy.
