APPROVES CUMMINS' BILL
Pottawattamie County Bar Association
Urge Supreme Court Legislation.
OEUCATION SENT TO PUSH THE MEASURE
Reasons Stated for Proposed Heqnlre
saeat that All Snprente Conrt
' Jadges shall Live In the
The Cummins bill now before the state
legislature was indorsed In strong terms
by the Pottawattamie County Bar associa
tion yesterday at a meeting called by Presi
dent Flnley Burke to dlscnss the measure.
Not only did the association Indorse the
bill, but It selected a delegation to ge to
Des Moines to present Its views on the mat
ter to the proper legislative committees.
The delegation Is a representative one and
Is composed ef Emmet Tlnley, chairman;
Hon. Joha N. Baldwin, Judge J. R. Reed,
C. M. HarL John M. Galvln and A. T. Flick
inrer. These resolutions were adopted and copies
were sent to the senate and bouse Judiciary
committees and the bouse committee on
compensation of public officers:
Resolved, by the Bar association of Potta
wattamie county, That we heartily Indorse
and urge the adoption of the bill now
pending In the general assembly, requiring
the Judges of the supreme court to reside
In Des Moines and maintain the court In
continuous session, and Increasing their
salaries, for the reason that this legisla
tion will enable the court to take the sub
misslon of a limited number of cases, on
full argument, oral and written, and have
them speedily determined on adequate con
sultation, obtaining thereon the Judgment
of the entire court, and will enable the
Judge, to be together for consultation,
within ready access to all authorities, and
under conditions enabling them to do their
work with greater satisfaction, both to
themselves and the bar. 1
It will do away with the present cumber
some and Inadequate "postoftice" system,
which, without Intending any criticism of
the court, has proved unsatisfactory to the
bar and likewise to the court. Under this
system. It is practically impossible, In the
average case, to have the ripened Judg
ment of more than one Judge, and It abso
lutely debars the oral argument of causes
by counsel, which ill of the most eminent
courts have declaiil to be not only con
ducive to better wtrk on the part of the
court, but practically essential to the
satisfactory determination of Important
The proposed legislation will enable the
court. In the discharge of Its business, to
In some degree follow the practice of the
supreme court ot the United State, and
the circuit courts of appeals, which have
been found to be the methods best adapted
to the most satisfactory discharge of Ju
We believe this system will be conducive
to the more orderly and satisfactory dis
charge of the duties of the court, and
meet the objections which have been pre
valent among litigant, and the bar. This
Increase of labor and expense rightfully
demand. Increased compensation for the
overworked and underpaid Judges of the
highest Judicial tribunal in the state.
The Cummins bill provides for Increasing
the salaries of the Judges of the supreme
court to $6,000 and requires that they must
reside In Des Moines. It also provides for
an increase in the salaries of Judges of the
district court. "

not far from the border of Maryland, is
located the modest plant that turns out
millions- ot postal cards every month for
the United States government. The town

It is cut Into the requisite sizes and the
cards printed, and finally packed and

hamlet in the United 8tatea, Porto Rico,
Hawaii and the Philippine islands. '
The postal card manufactory, relates the
Philadelphia Record) Is a two-story, fire
proof brick building with a cement roof.
The building is further protected by patent
automatic fire sprinklers, with an abundant
supply of water, so that danger from fire
reduced to a minimum. The building
is not large about 100x60 feet. The power
to run the machinery Is furnished by the

used on these presses is 60x30 Inches, and
each sheet contains ninety postal cards

from the press. The dies used In the print
ing of the cards are, of course, furnished
by the government. The presses are oper
ated by four men. each of whom works
eight hours every day. In the casing room
one man is kept busy putting together the
knocked -down pine boxes In which the
cards are packed for shipment. These
boxes are made of pine grown In West
Virginia, and are shipped "knocked-down"
to the contractor. The boxes vary in else,
holding 6,000, 10,000, 26.000 or 100,000 cards,
respectively. The largest shipment ever
made from the Piedmont works was a con-
lgnment of 24,000,000, which went out on
June 16. 1900.
The paper must contain 69 per cent of
sulphite spruce fibre, 22 per cent of soda

Then the girls arose and took seats far

"No," the first girl answered with spirit.

"I don't know him," commented Laura;

"Why, I don't know him, either," Clara
explained, "but I won't sit where I bave to

SICKNESS IS A BAD HABIT
AND ir TOD HATE IT, SMITH'S
GBEEN MOUNTAIN RKN'OTATOB
WILL CIEE TOU OF IT.
Why be lrk when we (rvaraatee thU
medicine to help yon!
Some peopla ara aptly described ai
"always grunting." They never seem
to feel just right, and if one thing isn't
the matter with them another is. These
are the people that we always feel like
crossing the street to avoid meeting.
They are always more or less ill because
they refuse to adopt a sensible course.
When they feel some particular symp
tom they dose themselves with various
things which are supposed to be good
for what that symptom indicates.
There is no use in pursuing such a
course as this. The only wny to get
cured and stay cured is to find the root
of the trouble and pull that root out.
Now, everybody knows that weakness
or diseases of the stomach, liver or kid
neys and consequent impure blood is
responsible for more than ninety per
cent of the ills that flesh is heir to.
The only sensible "thing to do is to
take Smith's Green Mountain Renova
tor. . That doesn't waste any time chas
ing around for this symptom or that
symptom, but goes right to the vital
organs, cleans them out and strengthens
and upbuilds them, and purifies and en
riches the blood. Just as soon as this
is done you get well, and just as long as
you keep yourself in proper condition
by the use of this famous old medicine
you are going to stay well.
There isn't any guesswork about this.
In its native Xew England home,
where it is the standard household
remedy for old and young, rich and
poor, Smith's Green Mountain Renova
tor has been effecting the most wonder
ful cures for a great many years, and it
will do for you just what it has done for
"My huhand has already told ynn how won
derfully he has hn benefited by Caking Smith's
Orx.h Mountain Renovator, and now I want
you to know the rest of the story.
" For years I have been a frail woman. Ify
household duties and cares of a family wore so
much upon me t his winter that I was afraid of a
Tere illness. When I saw what the RENOVA
TOR did for Mr. Sohntt, I decided to try It. It
does not went poeolble, but In four weeks I have
changed Into a healthy, rested and vigorous
woman. Your medicine Is the best remedy for
tired out people that I hare ever trlsl. I have
no more backache, headaohe cr nervousness.
The RENOVATOR cured me."
