THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: AUGUST 4. 1918.
7A SOUTH SIDE ARMOUR GIRLS' CARNIVAL NETS NICE SUM FOR KITS r, Employes of Big Packing Firm Hold Event on Lawn Be . fore Office to Cheer Boys at the Front. The wifdest wild man, the strong est strong man and the "Kuntry Stor" were but a few of the many features that drew at least 2,000 persons to the big carnival and dance given last n'ght by Armour employes in the gen eral office and on the lawn to swell the fund for comfort kit's for Armour men in uniform. A large sideshow in a regular circus tent erected on the lawn at Thirtieth and Q streets contained many world famed marvels open to the gaze of the public for the small sum of a tenth part of a dollar. The wild man who diets on raw meat and can speak no known lan guage forgot himself momentarily and asked for a stick of gum. The small est woman was by no means a sham, for, seated upon a platform and dressed in red and spangles, was a little maid whose age is still of one figure. The fat man was as fat as Hoover's regulations permitted, while the strong man's muscles stood out on his chest and arms ready to sup port a 2,000-pound weight. Lucky purchasers at the country store foiled old H. C. L. by obtaining a ham, a melon or a basket of gro ceries. Refreshments were served in the cafeteria and another room was filled with dancing couples. A monster parade preceded the show, composed of autos in which girls and bands were driven down Twenty-fourth street. Proceeds will go to the Soldiers' and Sailors' Comfort Kit society which cheers up the boys in service with kits and little luxuries that put "pep" in the fighters. R. E. Harris and Mrs. L. R. Ring were in charge of the carnival, aided by nearly all of the members of the office force. Exemption Board Peaceful After Phone Is Installed Peace has again come to the trou bled exemption board No. 2. With several new calls to be filled, and with a party of colored selective service men to be sent away Monday, the telephone was unexpectedly taken out and the board was without com munication with other boards, since the South Side city hall exchange was useless at the time. Calls from Lin coln, Chicago and eastern points came daily, but by some error of the city commission the phone had been removed. Nobody admitted any re sponsibility for its removal, but when Chairman Breen issued the ultimatum that he would have to wire the gov ernor to have a phone installed a wire man appeared the following day to install the connecting link of com munication and tension fell back to normal Small Boy and Matches y Start Fire in Residence Willie Driver, 5 years old, built a fire in the living room of his home, 1216 Drexel street, late Friday after noon, using a suit of his father's clothes and some, loose papers for Juel. In a few moments the flames had spread and the child running to his mother, a half block away, told her that the house was afire. Fire men arrived before much damage was done. And at The Germans-Nuxated Iron Helps Give Men The Strength, Power and Courage Ass't Judge Advocate General, Richard R. Kenney, Former U. S. Senator Says That With the Sustaining Tonic of Nuxated Iron He Has Had No Occasion. to Weaken Under the Most Strenuous Army Duties. Possessed of a vim and energy that might well be the envy of many a younger man, Ex-United States Senator Richard R. Ken ney, at nearly three score years of age, to day holds the rank of Major and Assistant Judge Advocate General in the United States Army, and Is one of the most determined in the fight to whip the Germans. While the sudden change from the quiet life of a citi zen prior to the outbreak of the war to the severity of army life might work a disastrouf hardship on some man who had passed thi half century mark, it was not so with Ma jor Kenney. He realized that the supreme tests of war demanded great strength, pow er and endurance. As a means to this end in his own case he began taking Nuxated Iron with the result that instead of growing weaker tinder the strain of army service, as many older men often are afraid they will. Major Kenney says he enjoyed a decided increase in vigor and endurance and that with the sustaining tonic of Nuxated Iron he has had no occasion to weaken tinder the most strenuous army duties. General Horatio Gales Gibson, U. S. A., (Retired), who entered the City of Mexico in the War of 1847 with General Winfield Scott, 3ays he feels that every soldier who (roes to the front shoud take Nuxated Iron, neneral David Stuart Gordon, U. S. A., (Retired), noted Indian fighter and hero of the battle of Gettysburg, says: "Despite my own advanced age, Nuxated Iron has made me fit and ready for another campaign and if my country needs me, I stand ready to go. General John L. Clem, U. S. A. (Retired), Ihe rrummer boy of Shiloh, who was ser geant in the U S. army at 1 2 years of age, J! that Nuxated Iron is' the one and ever reliable tonic that he obtained most surpris ing results from its nie In two weeks' time. Dr. James Franc's Sullivan, former! phy. ? e-ati i of Bol!evne Hospital (Outdoor Dent.).

Contrary to general opinion, lack of iron in the blood does not necessarily mean, you do not have enough blood, but it means your blood is not of the right kind."

The latest photograph of Sheriff Clark shows this popular official with his hat off. Up to this occasion he always insisted on having his picture taken with the familiar black, soft hat firmly on his head. His new photograph without hat offers a marked contrast and makes quite a difference. When Mrs. Clark first beheld this latest picturization of "Mike," 'she remarked trt it was "too good looking to be her hus band." The sheriff explained that when he had this picture taken he had no thought of making a political race on his good looks. "I had my hat in the ring and that is why it does not appear in this new photograph," he stated. Congressman Shocks Wheat.' A. W. Jefferis, republican congres sional candidate, was down in Sarpy county during the week, meeting some of his old friends. He hap pened along where County Clerk Ruff was busy in a wheat field. Jeff rolled up his sleeves and worked for a few hours in the wheat. Several farmers who drove along stopped to inquire who the new farm hand might be, and they were told that he was the next congressman from the Sec ond district of Nebraska. Carl Self, candidate for municipal judge on the nonpartisan ticket, had an experience during the week which has been shared by other nonpartisan candidates throughout the state. Self explained to a voter that he was as piring to one of the nominations as municipal judge and that his name would appear on the nonpartisan bal lots. "Then you are a member of the Nonpartisan league, are you?" the voter inquired. Self explained that on the county ticket candidates for municipal court, county court and county superintend ent will appear on a nonpartisan bal lot, which has nothing to do with the Nonpartisan league. The state non partisan ballots will contain candi dates for supreme court, regents of state university, state superintendent of schools and judges of district courts to fill vacancies. Filings Close Friday. Election Commissioner Moorhead announces that Friday, August 9, will be the last day for filings for non partisan offices and also the last day for revision of the registration for the primaries on August 20.

VESSEL LOOTED AND SET AFIRE BY SUBMARINE Captain and Crew cf Ship De stroyed in Canadian Waters Reach Islands in Small Boat. By Associated Press. Eastport," Me., Aug. 3. The first successful foray of a German subma rine in. Canadian waters was reported here today. Capt. Charles E. Dagwell of the British lumber schooner Dorn- fontein and his crew of eight men landed in their small boat on Grand Manan Island in the Bay of Fundy at 6:30 a. m. today and reported that their vessel had been held up, looted and set on fire by a U-bo;.t 25 miles southwest of Brier Island at 11:35 a. m. yesterday. The submarine apparently was watching for bigger game. She was in a position commanding shipping from the Canadian ports of Yarmouth, N. S., and St. John N. B., and was only a comparatively short distance outside American territorial waters. An American patrol boat took Cap tain Dagwell and his men from Grand Manan to at. John, N. B. Transfer Provisions. According to Captain Dagwell, the commander of the U-boat told him he had been on this coast six months and would be here until October. The submersible looked to Captain Dag well to be 275 feet in length. She carried two guns and had a crew of 75 men. The Dornfontein was stocked with provisions for a voyage to South Af rican ports and the Germans cheered as boatload after boatload of goods was transferred to the raider. The British sailors were allowed to take with them only the clothes they stood in. . Warning Shot Fired. The submarine, which came to the surface a short distance from the schooner, fired a warning shot and sent a small boat aboard. Fires were started on various parts of the vessel and today, 24 hours after the Dornfon tein was attacked, a smudge of smoke from her hulk was visible from Grand Manan Island, indicating that she was still afloat.

By Associated Press. Washington, Aug. 3. Widely pub lished reports today that General March, chief of staff, had told the senate military com'mittee General Pershing' estimated that American casualties in the Marne fighting at 12,000 not only grossly misinformed the country, but caused consternation and regret among War department officials. General March denied making any such statement, and the senators con firmed his denial. Secretary Baker also denounced the reports. When the senators asked General March if he had any estimate of casualties in the Marne fighting, he said he had not. Circulated by United Press. The committee on pu'ilic informa tion issued this statement: "At the request of the chief of staff, editors and correspondents are here by cautioned against publishing these false statements that any estimate has been made regarding the number of American casualties." In a statement issued tonight F. A. Walker, managing editor of the Washington Times, said the report rrhat there had been 12,000 casualties in the American forces in the present offensive was received from the United Press and, was printed on that authority.
