ARE YOUR EYES
BRIGHT AND CLEAR?
Nothing So Attractive As Clear
Bright Eyes.
You cannot look your best and fee!
sluggish or constipated, and nothins?
adds so much to, especially woman's
looks, as clear, bright, sparkling eyes.
Constipation is truly the greatest en
emy to womankind, and modern mo.les
of living are very- conducive to a tor
pid condition. Lamarine Wafv.-s,
"The Ideal Laxative," are pleasant to
take, are eaten like candy rather t'lan
taken like sickening pills or tablets,
and they bring that clear, fresh, clean
look so admired by everybody. A
wholesome complexion is produced all
without the slightest discomfort.
Ask your druggist for a bottle of
Lamarine Wafers the next time yo.i
visit town. Remember there is nothing-
like Lamarine Wafers. Do not ac
cept anything else. They are guaran

London. Feb. 12. If the summariza
tion by the New Statesman of condi
tions under Bolshevik rule :'s correct,
the Holsheviki will enter the Prinres'
Island p.irley witli an impressive roc -
j ord of accomplishment.
xne ew statesman js a radical hut
highly respectable orsan comparable
to the 'Nation and the Xew Republic
in America. It says:
"Order in Russia is more thorough
ly established than at any time since
the fall of the czardom, and food dis
tribution is better organized than at
any time during the whole war. Fac
tories are restarting work so far as
raw materials can be obtained. The
management of factories by commit
tees of employes failed and manage
ment by the Soviets (with consulta
tive employes' committees for certain
purposes,) has been substituted.
"The Bolsheviks are, although they
have been hampered by undesirable
tools, cleaning the country of bribery
and corruption. The terror has ceased
and has been exaggerated. Had he
nine not been in bed with his wound
there would have been no terror it
any rate, in Moscow. Xo execution has
taken place in Moscow for two months.
During the terror 400 executions took
place there, of which over CO per c?nt
were of corrupt Soviet officials. Cor
ruption is almost stamped out. In
efficiency is being remedied by re
cruitment among the educated classes.
"The Red army has become a dis
ciplined force. Its numbers are not
less than 600,000. It has rifles, ma
chine guns, and cartridges in plenty,
but not much artillery ammunition.
"Many of the professional and petty
bourgeoise have gone over to the Bol
sheviks. In the large towns the work
men are generally supporters of the
Soviets. The peasants were for a 'ong
time hostile. But the formation of
the 'poverty committees' which admin
ister the affairs of every large village
in the interests of the peasants has
changed that,"

Dreadful Cough Cured.
A severe cold is often followed by a
rough cough for which Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy has proven especially
valuable. Mrs. F. W. Olsen. Marys
ville, Mo., writes: "About two years
ago my little boy Jean caught a severe
cold and coughed dreadfully for days.
I tried a number of cough medicines
but nothing did any good until I gave
him Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It
relieved his covigh right away and be
fore he had finished taking one bottle
he was cured. I think it is just fine
for children. adv.

Meat forms uric acid which excites
and overworks the kidneys in their ef
forts to filter it from the system.
Regular eaters of meat must flush
the kidneys occasionally. You must
relieve them like you relieve your
bowels; removing all the acids, waste
and poison, else you feel a dull mis
ery in the kidney region, sharp pains
in the back or sick headache, dizzi
ness, your stomach sours, tongue is
coated and when the weather is bad
you have rheumatic twinges. 1ie
urine is cloudy, full of sediment; the
channels often get irritated, obligirg
you to get up two or three times dur
ing the night.
To neutralize these irritating acids
and flush off the body's urinous waste
get about four ounces of Jad Salts
from any pharmacy; take a taole
spoonful in a glass of water before
breakfast for a few days and your
kidneys will then act fine and bladder
disorders disappear. This famous
salts is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia.
and has been used for generations to
clean and stimulate sluggish Kidneys
and stop bladder irritation. Jad Salts
is inexpensive; harmless and makes
a delightful effervescent lithia-water
drink which millions of men and wo
men take now and then, thus avoiding
serious kidney and bladder diseases.

After-the-War Problems Affect
Telephone Service
While the nation was under the stress incident to win
ning the war, we asked our subscribers and the public to be
patient with the telephone service and to limit its use as much
as practicable in order that we might handle the urgent busi
ness of the nation efficiently.
Now that the armistice has been signed and hostilities
have ceased, we are confronted with problems of the recon
struction period, which are equally as serious and which will
require time and patience for solution.
The policy of frankness which wTe have practiced prompts
us to make it clear that the difficulties under which we are
now operating are such that it will be many months before we
can bring the service back to the standard of efficiency pre
vailing prior to the European war.
These difficulties are the same as those confronting other
business enterprises. We outline them briefly so that you
may understand why your service has not become normal
overnight.
More than 850 of our most skilled, trained, technical men
volunteered for service in the army and a large majority of
them are still in Europe. Very few of them returned, and we
cannot expect the balance to return soon. Few men of this
type have been available and those we are training by no
means equal our demand. This shortage of experienced
technical men hampers our plans for extensions to plant and
in turn delays installations.
Lacking the men we are also lacking the material needed
to enlarge and extend our plants. True the government's de
mands have practically ceased, but equipment must first be en
gineered, then ordered and then manufactured before it can be
installed. This involves time and if prompt delivery could
be made many months would elapse before we could receive
equipment for imperative needs. This is a situation confront
ing all telephone companies and one over which we have ab
solutely no control.
The abnormal increase in the volume of telephone calls
due to war activities created a need for a greater number of
operators and wTe have been diligently building up an enlarged
operating force. Other industries were seeking girl and wo
men workers and the inflated wages offered for emergency
work attracted some of our operators and made it increasingly
difficult to secure the required number of young women.
When this situation was very well in hand last fall the In
fluenza epidemic played havoc with our forces and our losses
from illness and death are still alarming. As a result of this
combination of circumstances, the percentage of new and in
experienced operators is large and there is now a serious short
age although our training schools are graduating large classes
every month.
Although our service has suffered from these causes the
pubile has been considerate and we have been able to handle
a heavier traffic than seemed humanly possible and have in
stalled promptly and operated efficiently the telephone plants
required by the government at army camps and other similar
institutions.
The situation confronting our service is more serious than
it was when fighting was in progress. The public has relaxed
from its tension and is inclined to expect our service to at
once assume its pre-war efficiency. We deem it our duty to
make this frank statement and urge you to continue the con
servation of the service which proved so helpful during the
time of our nation's greatest need.
We are operating the telephone system as agents for the
federal government under the supervision of the Postmaster
General, and our loyal organization is making a patriotic ef
fort to perfect the service. Your continued co-operation and
encouragement will be appreciated.
