PEOPLE URGED TO BUY
Half Holiday is Set Aside and Every

Washington, D. C President Wil
Bon, in behalf of the Liberty Loan,
Sunday night issued a proclamation
setting aside October 24 as Liberty
Day and urging the people of the na
tion to assemble on that day in their
respective communities and "pledge
to one another and to the government
that represents them the fullest meas

"Let the result be so impressive and
emphatic," the President urges, "that
it will echo throughout the empire of
our enemy as an index of what Ameri

The President's proclamation fol
lows: "By the Presient of the United
States of America :
'The second Liberty Loan gives the
people of the United States an oppor
tunity to lend their funds to their
government to sustain their country at
war. The might of the United States
is being mobilized and organized to
strike a mortal blow at autocracy in
defense of outraged American rights
and of the cause of liberty. Billions
of dollars are required to arm, feed
and clothe the brave men who are go
ing forth to fight our country's battles
and to assist the nations with whom
we are making common cause against
common foe. To subscribe to the
Liberty Loan is to perform a service
"No, therefore, I, Woodrow Wilson,
President of the United States of
America, do appoint Wednesday, the
24th of October, as Liberty Day, and
urge and advise the people to assemble
in their respective communities and
pledge to one another and to the gov
ernment that represents them the full
est measure of financial support. On
the afternoon of that day I request
that patriotic meetings be held in
every city, town and hamlet through'
out the land, under the general direc.
tion of the secretary of the Treasury
and the immediate direction of the
Liberty Loan committees which have
been organized by the Federal Reserve
"The people responded nobly to the
call of the first Liberty Loan with an
over-subscription of more than 60 per
cent. Let the response to the second
loan be even greater and let the
amount be so large that it will serve
as an assurance of unequaled support
to hearten the men who are to face the
fire of battle for us. Let the result be
so impressive and-emphatic that it will
echo throughout the empire of our en
emy as an index of what America in
tends to do to bring this war to a vie

the Liberty Day celebrations all em
ployes of the Federal government
throughout the country whose services
can be Bpared may be excused at 12
o'clock Wednesday, the 24th of Octo

unto set my hand and caused the seal

feel an ache or pain in the kidney

in fact it appears on the tables of
many well-regulated homes every
morning in the year. Authorities
agree that oatmeal, properly prepared,
is the most nutritious and easily
digested food for breakfast. Ordinary
oatmeal, however, does not digest
readily, because it is seldom cooked
long enough. It is estimated that the
kind usually sold as "Rolled Oats" or
"Crushed Oats" should be cooked at
least sixteen hours before it is fit to
eat at the end of which time it has
lost practically all of the flavor it orig
This led to the discovery of a pro
cess of cooking oatmeal in sealed cook
ers at a very high temperature under
steam pressure an exclusive process
which bursts the kernels of the starch,
changing them into dextrinized starch,
which is easily digested by the most
delicate stomach. The Bealed cookers
also cause the oatmeal to retain all of
the nutty flavor of the carefully-selected
oats, which is lost in every other
process. As a result of this patented
process, the oatmeal is not only more
palatable and digestible, but can be
made ready for the table with only
twenty minutes' cooking, which makes
it a great convenience to the house
wife. This is a subject of vital interest to
the parents of growing children, be
cause the time to lay the foundation of
good health and long life is during
childhood. It is what you digest, not
what you eat, that makes muscle, bone
and brain. Oatmeal is the ideal food
for building up sturdy bodies and keen,
receptive brains, but the ordinary
kind does not appeal to many children
because of its lack of flavor. This has
all been remedied by the steam-cooking
process, which makes the oatmeal so
deliciously palatable that children not
only relish it, but call for more.
The oatmeal prepared by the process
referred to is the kind put up for the
market under the name of H-0 Oat
meal, and can be obtained from all
grocers by simply insisting upon that
brand. It contains nearly twice as
much tissue-building material as corn
meal, rice, white flour bread or soda
crackers, and is really more nourishing
than meat or eggs, while it only costs
about one-half cent per dish. Is it
any wonder, therefore, that H-0 has
become known as "The National
Yakima Busy Picking Apples.
North Yakima Fruit shipments
from the valley last week aggregated
458 carloads, bringing the total for the
season to 5,456 cars. Approximately
8000 carloads are still to be moved.
The last of the peaches and some late
pears went out the past week, but
about 400 carloads were apples, mostly
Jonathans and other fall varieties.
Picking is under way everywhere and
it wilj take about two weeks more to
finish the harvest. Owing to shortage
of packers much of the tonnage must
be held until later for packing.

Ten years ago probably not
American in a million expected to see
the day when the government, on thir
ty days' notice, would by its flat stop
the making of whisky for an indefin
ite period. Yet that is precisely what
was done last month, under the pro
visions of the Food Control Act, while
the country looked on in amazement.
The greatest distilleries in the world
those at Peoria and Louisville
stopped the buying of grain, save in
comparatively small quantities for the
manufacture of alcohol for commercial
and medicinal uses. These great
plants have not been equipped for
producing anything except whisky.
Experts tell us, however, that of all
the grain that was taken by distil
leries the country over, only 40 per
cent went Into whisky. This estimate
would indicate a saving of 40,000,000
bushels of grain a year for food pur
poses. There need be no fear of a
whisky famine, for the stock accumu
lated by the distillers and stored Is
described as enormous. Meanwhile,
the government will continue the col
lection ot heavy taxes on this stock,
and its revenues from this source may
be even greater than before the manu
facture was stopped. From "The

ican Review of Reviews for October,

Grandmother kept her hair beauti
fully darkened, glossy and attractive
with a brew ot Sage Tea and Sulphur.
Whenever her hair took on that dull,
faded or streaked appearance, this
simple mixture was applied with won
derful effect, By asking at any drug
store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur
Compound," you will get a large bot
tle ot this old-time recipe, improved
by the addition of other ingredients,
all ready to use, for about 60 cents.
This simple mixture can be depended
upon to restore natural color and
beauty to the hair.
A well-known downtown druggist
says everybody uses Wyeth's Sage
and Sulphur Compound now because
It darkens so naturally and evenly
that nobody can tell It has been ap
pliedit's so easy to use, too. You
simply dampen a comb or soft brush
and draw it through your hair, taking
one strand at a time. By morning
the gray hair disappears; after an
other application or two, it is restored
to its natural color and looks glossy,
soft and beautiful. This preparation
is a delightful toilet requisite. It is
not Intended for the cure, mitigation
or prevention of disease.
