more surface, wears longer and looks better than any other
high (rrade paint on the market.
It adds preatly to the beauty and attractiveness of a pro

In sickness, If a certain hidden
nerve goes wrong, then the orau
that that nerve eontrorls will also
surely fail. It may be a stomach
nerve, or it may have given strength
and supoprt to the heart or kidneys.
It was Dr. Shoop that first pointed
to this vital truth. Dr.
Shoep's restorative was not made to
dose the stomach or to temporarily
stimulate the heart or kidneys. That
old fashioned method Is all wrong.
Dr Shop's Restorative goes direct
ly to those failing inside nerves. The
remarkable sucess of this prescrip
tion demonstrates the wisdom of
treating tho actual cause of tho fall
ing organs. And it is indeed easy
to prove. A simple live or ten days'
test will surely tell. Tsy It at once,
and see! Hold by all dealers.

One of tho linemen of the Platts
mouth telephone company Is report
ed to have been overcome with the
heat this morning while working on
Chicago avenue. It Is said medical
attention was necoBsar to restore him
to his normal condition. His con
dition Is not regarded as serious. The
two telephone companies are hav
ing a great deal of trouble In keep
ing men during the hot spell, several
of the men having quit and and left
for cooler climates. The work Is
particularly hard on the men owing
to their having to be out in tho sun
for so long. In a number of In
stances where It was possible can
opies are erected under which the
men work. These servo to break
the sun's force and make the work
at least bearable. The thermometer
today hovers around the 100 mark
as It has been doing tho past four
days and there seems small prob
ability of a change soon. Another
thing to make the heat particularly
oppressive is the great amount of
humidity In the air. Owing to the
excessive rainfall of the past week or
ten days, the air Is full of moisture
and this makes the heat appear worst
til'-" the thermometer, shows
Weather Indications as given by the
weather bureau are for generally fair
today and tomorrow.
