WOMAN'S NERVES !
MADE STRONG I I ; i , By Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Winona, Minn.—"I suffered for more than a year from nervousness, and waa ao bad I could not rest at night— would lie awake and get so nervous I would have to get up and walk around and in the morning would be all tired out. I read about Lydia E. Pinkham'a Vegetable Com r jund and thought would try it My _ nervousness soon left me. I sleep well and feel fine in the morning ana able to do my work. I gladly recom mend Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound to make weak nerves strong."—Mrs. Albert Sultze, 603 OlmBtead St, Winona, Minn. How often do we hear the expression among women, "I am so nervous, I can not sleep," or "it seems as though I should fly." Such women should profit by Mrs. Sultze's experience and give this famous root and herb remedy, Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, a trial. For forty years it has been overcom ing such serious conditions as displace ments, inflammation, ulceration, irreg ularities, periodic pains, backache, diz ziness, and nervous prostration of women, and is now considered the stan dard remedy for such ailments. ©Q Get the Genuine and Avoid Vlfeste m © AJ'^Economy in Every Cake w tii] Bald so Young Rub Dandruff and „ Itching with / Cutlcura Ointment Ol Shampoo With Coticara Soap ^ ^ L^fVjj^ftnijrjirtaMioaji^^MntnianLlVivuraJtfmeacb. CANARY RISES TO PROTEST Declares Increase in Cost of Living Has Been Excessive, and Gives Figures to Prove It. Among the latest to protest against the habit of raising prices, simply be cause the raised price can be secured, there was heard, recently, a new voice. It was that of a canary. Being a bird whose motto had ever been : "Strict application to business," it had been his custom, when the rest of the fam ily left the city during the summer und shut up the house, to board bim se] f out. Two years ago, he could, he says, get good accommodation, an airy room with a sunny aspect, good seed, water, hath, and unrestricted oppor tunity for vocal exercise for thirty cents a week. Last year, however, the charge for the same accommodation was raised to forty cents, and this year it appears he has been obliged to pay titty cents. He is willing, he declares, to sustain his share of the burden of the war, but he regards a 66 per cent rise as unduly hard on a bird of mod erate means. STOMACH UPSET?

CITIES AND TOWNS HELPED Faced by Big Shortage of Farm Hands and War Calling More Men Fed eral, State and City Forces Unite in Saving Grain. Kansas farmers this year faced a harvest labor problem as serious as any in the country, it is believed by officials of the United States depart ment of agriculture. Tiie story of how Kansas fought its difficulties and over came them demonstrates the high splr it of patriotism in the country districts, the willingness of the cities and towns? to help out in emergencies, and points the way for other states to meet sim liar problems nest year. Seven million acres of wheat called for harvest help. The army and war industries were taking increasing num- i hers of men from the state. Railroad , fares had been raised, impeding the movement of workers. A shortage of from 90,000 to 100,000 men during the harvest season was indicated by a la bor survey made early in the year by the county agents in co-operation with the schools. The problem was up to the state farm help specialist (representing the department of agriculture and the ex tension division of the state agricul tural college), the United States de partment of labor, the county agents and the farm bureaus. They received co-operation from chambers of com merce and business men's clubs. The farm help specialist visited 85 of the 105 Kansas counties aud discussed the labor situation with farm and town people at county meetings, eight district meetings delegates from the farm bureaus and other farmers' organizations from every county rec ommended wage scales for the districts and that labor be paid by the hour in stead of the day. At a state meeting 45 cents an hour was decided on as a fair wage. Later at Recruiting Town Men. I.ate In May the farm help specialist developed a method of recruiting town and city men for help in the fields. Work was started under a proclama tion by the governor through the coun ty and emergency agents, with the chambers of commerce and retail merchants' associations definite records were obtained of approximate ly 30,000 men In over 500 towns and cities who were willing to answer the harvest call. Headquarters at Wichita and 20 local offices were opened by the department of labor to recruit men from outside the state. In farm bu reau counties the agents In nearly ev ery ca3e accepted the responsibility of reporting the labor needs of the county to the federal labor offices and of distributing the harvest hands after Working . , _ _ j *eir arrival, n Cheyenne and Raw , lins counties this meant that the agents had to organize a transport system ; hat brought the harvest hands in from I the main line railroads by automobile, an aTera g e distance of about 30 miles, Assistance in this work was given by j the agricultural agents of railroads, t | ^he result was that Kansas lost ! none of Its wheat crop. All of the gj. a j n bas been safely harvested and helping to turn the scales in the bat tie of food resources, 1 Thousands of Helpers Obtained. Although complete data are not available from all counties, a definite record of 48,471 men being placed through the various co-operating agen ! «les has been obtained. Of this num ber more than 18,000 were handled by ,„ e local labor offices of the depart a ment of labor and more than 3,000 were town men who went out to har- 1 vest through the federal labor offices j Q Kansas City and St. Joseph. Mo., and Kansas City, Atchison and Leaven- j j worth, Kan. Sixty-nine counties that have county agents have reported that they cleared through their offices more than 18,000 harvest hands from out side the county and that more than 7.000 town men, organized as "twilight shock troops," went in squads to help in the evening. These enumerations do not include large number of retired farmers and other townspeople who helped In the harvest but did not register, and do not take account of thousands of boys. So great was the response of men in the emergency that less than 5 per cent of the women in Kansas were used as harvest helpers.

Before the long, wet winter months set in, when the greater part of his machinery and implements are-not In use, the thrifty farmer carefully goes over them, oiling, using paint when necessary, supplying broken or missing parts and putting everything under shelter. These and other frugal char acteristics differentiate him from the shiftless, haphazard farmer who leaves his implements exposed to the weath er, who lets the fences around his house and barn fall down, perfectly contented to throw a hoop over his corral gate rather than put on a new hinge or repair the old one. The former, It may be taken for granted, is a plow-deep, use-fertilizer, cultlvate-thoroughly and take-advan tage-of-the-market farmer—in a word, a successful farmer; while the latter is a scratch-the-ground and trust-to luclc individual whose failure he at tributes to anyone but himself. No right-minded farmer could toler ate being in the second class ; and, on the other hand, every farmer coming under that category ought to aspire to the first classification—and now Is the time to start. Farm Made to Pay. For ten years a 500-acre farm in cen tral Michigan failed to pay interest on the capital Invested. One year after the owners had been induced to make certain radical changes the farm paid all expenses of operation and returned them 5 per cent on an investment of $60.000. These changes were: Sustitution of four-horse for two horse machinery: substitution of bet ter stock for unprofitable cOws in the dairy herd; adoption of the silo plan; allowance to the foreman. In addition to his salary, of 10 per cent of the net income from the farm. Expenses of operating the farm, but not the interest on the capital, were deducted from the income before the foreman received his percentage. The owners yielded to the plan when they found that for every dollar the fore man got under such an arrangement they would receive nine. Soak Seed for Fall Garden. Owing to the difficulty usually ex perienced in getting seeds planted in the fall garden to germinate, It is wise to soak them a few hours before plant ing. Cover the seeds lightly when planting, then soak the ground, and finish the covering with fine dry soil. The dust mulch will retain the mois ture, enabling the seeds to germinate and to come up. garden land is to apply it broadcast land spread it abundantly.

Duoouts Blown Up Ten Days After They Had Been Abandoned by Teu tons, While Explosions Occur Four Days After Hun Evacuation. *uris.—The boches are showing j , devilish Ingenuity in the manner in which they are leaving infernal mu- i chines behind them as they retreat to- j wurd the ltliine. This ingenuity seems to depend upon the time Heinie had to work it out. In some regions every dugout has Its little contrivance of death, but of all tiie assortment the one he left at Chatel Cherhery ranks first. It was here that ammunition dumps and dugouts began to explode four days after the Germans left the place some two weeks ago. Ten days ufter the enemy was gone two dugouts blew up from time bombs. Our engi neers have found many types of in fernal machines, such as those fixed to eight-day clocks and thermometers. For ingenuity one found a few days ago was remarkable. Eight teet from the entrance of a handsome «logout that would make a good shelter for weary doughboys was found a cane, hanging carelessly over the balustrade of a stairway. It looked harmless, but a certain engineer lieutenant had learned to he wary. Walking around tiie cane he examined it. It appeared to he all right. Turning on his flash light lie went over it minutely, and half way between tiie ferrule and the bundle he saw a small black string tied to it. This string led to the balustrade and down to where a person would naturally stand at tiie foot of the stairs when grasping the cane. Be neath this spot, four feet square, a hole was filled with an explosive cor responding to TNT. This is one il lustration of how the In idle likes to fight. This is one of tiie relisons why the doughboys think less favorably of an armistice than they otherwise might. 1915, failed drawn the in were to ish key diers the COUNT TISZA ASSASSINATED. Former Hungarian Premier Finally Pays the Penalty. Copenhagen.-—Count Tisza.- tiie for mer Hungarian premier, has been killed by a soldier, according to a Budapest telegram. The count fell victim to a revolver shot while he was out walking. Count Tisza, whose life is reported ended hy assassination, lias long been one of the storm centers of Hungar ian polities. It lias been charged that Count Tisza was one of the four men responsible for the war, and the ac cusation has b«ien made that he in stigated the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. Count Tisza was twice premier of Hungary, from 1903 to 1905 and from June 6, 1913, to May 23. 1917.

Free PaMage by A||led F|eet Th h the Bosphorous and Into the Black Sea and Occupation of Ports Along the Dardanelles. London.—Turkey is out of the war. An armistice between Turkey and tha allied powers became operative at noon , m Thursday, October 31. A British prisoner general conduct ed the negotiations for Great Britain. He is General Townshend, who with an arm of 10.U00 was surrounded and captured at Kut-Et-Amara. A few days ago he was released from the Turkish prison camp and the captive became armistice and peace negotiator. The end of the preliminary parleys saw the Turks, who starved him and his heroic army out two surrendering unconditionally to his government's and the allies' terras. The terms of Turkey's capitulation, as outlined, include : years ago, l. Free passage by allied fleet through the Bosphorus and into the Black sea. 2. Occupation of the ports along the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus. 3. Immediate repatriation of allied prisoners in Turkish prison camps. Unofficially parleys with Turkey have been going on for fully a week. They were largely one-sided, however, Turkey making feverish efforts to get] into direct communication, first with) the entente governments, mainly Great Britain, then with the allied military anil naval chiefs. Turkey entered the war in Novem ber, 1614, when she severed diplo matic relations with Great Britain, France and Russia. Military operations began against Turkey on November 5, and Great Britain annexed the island of Cyprus. Turkey entered the war only a few days after the German warships Bres- lau and Goelien had sought shelter in tiie L>ardanelles, which was at ones blockaded by the allied fleet. In April, 1915, allied troops were landed on tha Gallipoli peninsula, but the campaign failed and the allied troops were with drawn in December of the same year. The British began a campaign along the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in No vember, 1914. They advanced to with in less than 100 miles of Bagdad, but were defeated and retreated to Kut-el Amara, where they were later forced to surrender. Early In 1917 the Brit ish renewed the offensive In Mesopo tamia and have continued it success fully ever since, until now they are within a few miles of Mosul. For several weeks after the United States declared war on Germany, Tur key took no action, but on April 21. 1917, she severed diplomatic relations. However, there has never been a dec laration of war either by the United States or Turkey. Turkey has almost two million sol diers and sailors who are now out of the world conflict. BRITISH ARE OPTIMISTIC. Believe That Germany Cannot Hold Out Much Longer. London.—Germany's capitulation is expected momentarily. She is expeel ed to accept even the most rigid arm istice terms. Best military and poli tical opinion here is that she cannot hold out longer than two or three weeks at the most. If, however, she should decide to make a last ditch fight, behind the Rhine, with Turkey and Austria out, the very maximum time given her by experts is six mouths. Keep Shipbuilding Going.
