Armed Guards Now Watch Food Storehouses Here All elevators and warehouses where foodstuffs are stored in and near Omaha are now under armed protec tion of the National Guard. Before this additional guarding was taken up Sunday, an incendiary fire occurred in an elevator near here, but it was put out before much damage was done. The bomb in a carload of oats shipped from Omaha to Denver, combined with the incendiary fire and other suspicious circumstances, led to the guarding ot stores of grain and foodstuffs. After the guards were posted at elevators, an auto passed one of the new guard posts. Either a tire blow out, an engine mis-fire or some similar explosion, gave rise to a rumor that a guardsman had been fire 1 on by a prowler. This .eport was refuted by guard officers. Trivate Larman of the guard was one of the guards near the scene of the noise. He and his super ior officer.! reported to Vaior Todd that the explosion was not that of a firearm, but undoubtedly came from a passing auto. Mute, Denied in Militia, Turns to Red Cross Work James M.

Important Message To the Public f)UR responsibility as an institution of service in this community, where for about thirty years we have clothed the majority of Omaha men, young men and boys, makes it incumbent upon us to keep our patrons correctly informed regarding market conditions on men's wearing apparel. U Some time ago we predicted that higher prices would prevail, and urged the public to govern their .purchases accordingly. Thousands profited by our suggestion. On account of war being declared, a crisis has been created in the woolen market, which directly involves and greatly affects every man's personal interests. The United States government has been offered all the wool in the Boston market, much of which was expected to be used in the manufacture of civilian clothing. We foresaw the era of high prices and provided the largest stocks of clothing, hats, furnishings and shoes for men, young men and boys we have ever assembled. We have not raised our prices (except in a few minor instances) , nor do we intend to do so until our present stocks are exhausted. We again urgently and conscien tiously advise immediate purchasing for present and later wants the only way to evade the higher prices of the future. - -CORRECT APPAREL FOR MEN AND WOMEN- -)) '1 III INERTIA This, coupled with the pill snd laxative habit, is the chief reason why women suffer even more than men from con ' stipation and intestinal stasis. Laxatives and cathartics ire without exception irritants which whip the bowels into action and over-stimulate the intestinal nerve-centers. Physi cians recognize that their habitual use brings serious consequences, such as appendicitis, intestinal toxaemia and chronic constipation. Hence physicians nowadays avoid the drug remedies. Nujol, an intestinal lubricant, is a far safer and more effect ive means of relieving constipation. It keeps the intestinal contents soft, soothes and lubricates the irritated mucous membranes and helps to re- As store normal bowel activity. Unlike drugs or physics Nujol is not absorbed by the sy stem.and does not form a habit As Nujol is not a physio but a lubri cant, it does not gripe or upset the system. Being tasteless, it is not un pleasant to take. The Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) has used its world-wide re sources in producing Nujol and its reputation is behind the product. Nujol is the only remedy for constipation we manufacture. The genuine sold only in pin bottles bearing Nujol trade-mark. All bottles filled at our Nujol plant, ab solutely modern and sanitary. W rite today for an instructive book let on Nujol and its uses. STANDARD OIL COMPANY BiyooM WwJmw) NewJen.y Nemo.. For Best Service, Best Results Use The Bee Want Ad? Adrfre
