upon an eight-hour basin overtime cn
each basis to be computed pro rata.

to the decision of the commission pro
vided for in this memorandum and
payable in money as may be directei
by said commission in its finding an 1

A HEALTHY STOMACH.
It is a well known fact that some
times the stomach refuses to accept
any food, no matter how well it is
prepared. This loss of appetite is
usually the first symptom of diseases
This condition demands an immediate
attention and the first thing to do
is to take Triner's American Elixir of
Bitter Wine, which quickly stimulates
the digestiytj organs to renewed activi
ty, which creates a natural appetite
and strengthens the body. Many dis
eases are either the result of consti
pation or constipation is the most
prominent symptom of them. This
remedy will clean out the body thor
oughly and keep it clean. At drug
stores. Price $1.00. - Jos. Triner, Man
ufacturing Chemist, 1333-1339 South
Ashland Ave., Chicago.
If you will rub with Triner's Lini
ment aching muscles or joints, you
will be surprised, how quickly you will
be relieved. A hot bath followed by
a rub down by this liniment will keep
the muscles strong. At drugstores,
