THE CONTRASTING BODICE OF CHIFFON
OR SILK EFFECTIVE AND ECONOMICAL
Feminine to a degree are the simple
blouses of net and chiffon that are used
on so many of the afternoon and even
ing frocks. Very often ' their sole
adornment consists of a few tucks or
plaits and a narrow band of ribbon
outlining the neck and perhaps edging
the sleeve. A few rhine-stone or pearl
buttons serve to close and to trim them
at the same time.
The effective little gown shown In
No. 7965 Is developed in one of those
quaint figured silks which are so remi
niscent of grandmother's day and are
so becoming to youthful, slender fig
ures. The underblouse of tucked fig
ured not Is rendered doubly pleasing
by the trmming straps which give the
impression of suspenders. Two broad
plaits on the front of the skirt afford
the necessary drapery.

When you have that choked and stuf

in the nose, raising of mucus, drop

breath, you are affected with catarrh.
Immediate steps should be taken to
stop the disease or it will become
chronic and serious.
By all means use Hyomei. Money
refunded by Huntley Bros. Co. if not
satisfied. It is a medicated air treat

the stomach, but is breathed in
through the Hyomei inhaler that
comes with every $1.00 outfit. It ef

the growing generation will be asked
to assist the good work by the pur
chase of a ten-cent tag from the mem

sented. One school has promised to sell 500
tags and as there will be an effort on
the part of each school to sell the
greatest number and turn into the
fund the largest amount of money, the
competition will be keen and the re

The condition 'of the street was a
great drawback to the progress of the
firemen. A sewer is being laid along
Seventh street and great mounds of
dirt bordered both sides of the trench
The mud and soft slush of the street
was ankle deep in places, making it
almost impossible to move the hose
carts at times. More than once the
carts became stuck and it required the
combined strength of a number of
men to move them.
Save Part of Stock.
With the arrival of the first on the
scene the doors of the store were
opened and the work of removing the
goods was started. At first the cash
register and the more valuable cases
were taken out but, as the number of
rescuers increased, the entire stock
of the front part of the store, consist
ing for the most part of ribbons, dress
goods, notions and such articles, was
removed. It is estimated that about
one-third of the stock was taken from
the burning building.
The saved stock was piled along the
north side of the ' street and taken in
the stores on the north side. The
curb of the side walk and the paralell
ridges of dirt were covered wita
cardboard boxes, many of them open
and with their contents exposed to
LESS MEAT IF BACK
Take a glass of Salts to flush Kidneys

lots of water.
Sating meat regularly eventually pro
duces kidney trouble in some form or
other, says a well-known authority, be
cause the uric acid in meat excites the
kidneys, they become overworked; get
sluggish; clog up and cause all sorts of
distress, particularly backache and mis
ery in the kidney region; rheumatic twin
ges, severe headaches, acid stomach, con
stipation, torpid liver, sleeplessness,
bladder and urinary irritation.
The moment your back hurts or kid

take a tablespoonful in a glass of water
before breakfast for a few days and your
kidneys will then act fine. This famous
salts is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia,

flush clogged kidneys and stimulate them
to normal activity; also to neutralize the
acids in the urine bo it no longer irri

large part of the stock was removed
from the store, the fact that it was ex

The building was of frame con
struction and was about 75 by 120. Its
value- is estimated at about $10,000
and the stock a little more than $30,
000. Both goods and building were
the property of Elliott brothers. It is
throught, by a member of the firm,
that the total loss will be in the
neighborhood of $40,000. The amount
covered by insurance is not definitely
known but it is probably near $15,000
on building and goods.
The lower floor was occupied by El
liott brother's store and a small part
on the corner of Madison by Duane
Ely, hardware and farm implements.
This stock was damaged but little,
due to the fact that the fire depart
ment concentrated its work on the
west side of the building.
Second Story, Residence.
The second story of the structure
was used as the living quarters of O.
W. Elliott who had the active man
agement of the business. At the time
of the fire neither he nor any member
of his family were in these rooms.
The fire broke out on tie rear of the
second story, according to those who
were the first to arrive on the scene.
No one had been in the building since
the store had closed sveral hours be
fore. This, together with the fact that
this is the third of a series of mid
night fires within three days, has
caused those who saw the blaze to
think that all are of incendiary orgin.
In the fire which destroyed the Mc-
Roberts bakery, the strong smell of
gasoline was noticable to those who
first entered the burning building. In
this fire, also, no one was home at the
I wo masses.
