AND CONSIDER THE
That In addressing Mrs, Pinkhara you
are confiding your private ills to a woman
a woman wh'che experience 'with wo
man's diseases covers a great many years.
You can talk freely to a woman when it
is revolting to relate your private troubles
to a man besides a man does not under
stand simply because be is a man.
Many women suffer in silence and drift alongf
front bad to worse, knowing full wt.ll that, they
ought to have immediate assistance, but a natural
modesty impels them to shrink from exposing them
selves to the questions and probably examinations of
even their family physician. It is unnecessary.
Without money or price you can consult a woman
whose knowledge from actual experience is great.
Mrs. tMnkliam's Standing Invitation:
Women sufferinfr from any form of female weak
ness are invited to promptly communicate with Mrs.
I'inkhana at Lynn, Mas. All letters are received,
opened, read and answered by women only. A
woman can f-eely ta.it of her private Illness to a
woman; thus has been established the eternal
confidence between Mrs. Plukham and the women
of America which has never been broken. Out
of the vast volume of experience which she
has to draw from, it is more than passible
that she has gained the very knowledge
that will help your case. She asks noth
inffin return except your good-will, and her
advice has relieved thousands. Surely any
woman, rioh or poor, is very foolish If she
does not take advantage of this treneroua
offer of assistance. Lydia E. Pinkham

Plscui'flon ss to whether or not the
Monmouth Park school building and Its
elaborate hrntlnn and ventilating; appara
tus are worth the 47,(iro Invested In them,
and whether It Is wipe to employ Archi
tect Thomas It. Kimball, who drew the
plans to make plana for the new slxteen
room Vinton building, enlivened things nt
the meeting of the Board of Education last
night. The result of the talk was to defer
action upon a resolution advocated by the
committee on buildings and property which
would authorize the oommlttee to hire an
architect to prepare the preliminary plan.
Member Knnis made the motion to thin
effect. Member Cole ankod how much the
building had cost and Member Rice told
him U7,0CO. Mr. Cole said he thought the
district should get considerable returns
from so much money, and Mr. Rice re
sponded that the ventilation was perfect,
and that some of the cost Is due to the
fact that the structure Is built so it can
Member Lindsay, who Is a member of
the buildings and property committee, said
he preferred to lot the whole board take
the "onus" of selecting an architect In
stead of unloading the burden on the com
mittee. Vance on the Ventilation.
Then Member Vance said some uncom
pll nentary things snout the new school
building. "I do not know how the heat
ing plant is working now," said he. "But
I was there In the winter and It was very
unsatisfactory. While I was there an ex
pert from Chicago was trying to get the
apparatus In working order and failed
utterly at that particular time. Tosslbly
he succeeded later, but he-was in anything
but a pleasant frame of mind that morn
ing. The heating people said the ven
tilating system was wrong, and the ven
tilating people said the heating system was
wrong, and I came to the conclusion that
everything wns wrong. I know that some
thing Is wrong. There has been much com
plaint concerning the outside appearance
of the building and against the amount
of money we put in It. It seems an un
necessary outlay of money. If the same
architect Is employed for other schools
some way should, be devised to curb his
power. Mr. Kimball Is a first class archi
tect, but he has the reputation of beins
expensive, and contractors say they figure
higher on Jobs that he supervises."
"That's because he Insists upon the spec
ifications being lived up to and the right
kind of work," asserted Mr. Rice.
Member Koenig said he understood the
heating and ventilating plants had beon
turned over to what was supposed to be
the best firms of their kind In Chicago,
und that the work had cost about one
third of the amount put in the building.
Defense of the Architect.
"The fact- that contractors object so
strenuously to the architect Is proof that
his work Is good," said Mr. MeCague.
"But as chairman of the finance commit
tee I wajit to call your attention to the
fact that we will have only about JtO.000
left In the building fund this year. This
will enable you to employ an architect
and perhaps get foundation In. The
building fund next year may be large
enough only for a twelve-room building,
and the remainder of the structure may
have to go up later."
Returning to the original subject, Mr.
Rice said the heating and ventilating
plants at the Monmouth Park school are
going to work satisfactorily on an econom
ical basis and declared that the building
Is the only one in the west equipped with
up-to-date apparatus of this kind. Chnir
man Christie said the architectural beauty
of the building had been lacriflced to keep
the expense down and this was admitted.
Cutting; Off Parker's Power.
Proceedings were started toward cur
tailing the power of Truant Officer Par
ker, which he has exercised up to the
present time without a check-gauge. An
amendment to the rules was Introduced
and acted upon favorably, which will
cause the truant officer to be under the
jurisdiction of the superintendent of in
struction and not authorized to undertake
pros -cutions under the compulsory educa
tion law without Instructions from the
latter. Secondly, a report adopted for
the purpose of paying $40 to Justice Bald
win and t-7 to his constable forbids the
truant officer from taking these cases
Into Justice courts, and directs him to
bring action ire the police court, which
will eliminate the charges. The money
was for the fifteen cases which Officer
Parker pulled off in Justice Baldwin's
Acting Chairman Balrd of the judiciary
committee said the truant officer informed
him that in police court he was forced
to lose several hours waiting for his cases
to be called, while the Justice arranged
hearings in the evening or at other times
so as not to Interfere with truant catching.
Member Cole stated that Officer Parker
told him lie could not "get results" In
the police court; that cases were dismissed
and he failed thereby to instil the proper
reverence for the law in delinquent par
Enlarging Clifton Hill School.
Authority was given for the construc
tion of two frame additions, each 25x23
feet In size, on either end of the. Clifton
Jllll school, the estimated cost being )4,7uo,
the work to be done under the supervi
sion of the superintendent of buildings
and the direction of the committee on
buildings and property. Four rooms will
be added to the school In this way. The
plans were drawn by Superintendent of
"The additional room la budly needed,"
said Superintendent Davidson. "At pres
ent no leas than fifty children from the
district are attending the Walnut Hill
school, overcrowding it und making one
or more rooms unsanitary. There is much
building going on in the territory and e.n
imperative demand for more room in the
Clifton 11111 school building."
A letter from Justice W. M. Eastman
asking that the board use Us -Influence
to have a gas lump on the alley near the
Long annex restored was referred to a
committee. The Justice said that the ah
sencs of the lamp causes rowdies to as
semble who are bad for the neighborhood
annoy three church congregations and da
face school property.
An offer from Frank W. Davie of I40U
for five lots at Forty-eighth and William
streets was accepted. The lota form an
old school site no longer used or wanted.
Proposals to sign petitions for grading
Twelfth street lrom Psclflo to Mason,
Park avenue from Farnam to Dodgs and
Douglas from Twenty-ninth to Thirtieth
were referred to the attorney for advice
so the board will not get financially In
volved. At his request permission was given
Member. Cole to be absent about two
months, during which time he and Iila
wife will visit his old hoi,: in Ireland.

MAYOR DUNNE GIVES IP HOPE
Chicago Executivs Concludes that Farther
Efforts to End Strike Will Be Frtitlesi.
MOB ATTACKS STATE STREET CAR
Two Colored Rnnonlon Drivers
Roughlr Handled lie fore Police
Can Rescue Them Man
CHICAGO. April lt.-After a conference
held In his office late this afternoon with
representatives of the teamsters' union
Mayor Dunne announced that he had prac
tically given up hope of settling the Mont
gomery Ward & Co. strike.
"I will hold conferences tomorrow," said
the mayor, "with representatives of both
sides, but I have no Idea at the present
that anything will result."
There were numerous disturbances In
the streets during the day, and others
around the freight houses. Several non
union men on their way home were fol
lowed by strike sympathizers 'and budly
beaten, one of them, Henry Auten, being
beaten so badly with brass knuckles that
he may die.
Blar Riot on State Street.
The most snrious disturbance of the
day occurred late In the afternoon at the
Intersection of State and Madison streets.
A mob numbering fully 2,000 people gath
ered about a State street cable car on
which James Jackson und Moses Flood,
two colored men who had driven a wagon
to Montgomery Ward & Co.'s, were rid
ing. Stones and sticks were hurled at the
cur, and In a twinkling every window In
It was smashed. Two policemen rushed
into the car, and in order to protect the
colored men from the crowd placed them
under arrest. A riot call was sent to
the central station and it required the
twenty officers who responded and thirty
minutes time to drive away the crowd
and open the streets against the crowd.
Teamsters Working; Slowly.
Exasperating difficulties were ex
perienced at every turn today by
the wagons of Montgomery Ward
& Co., whose teamsters and garment work
ers are on strike. At the Michigan Central
freight house In South Water street the
police escorting the Ward caravan met
with stubborn opposition on the part of
the teamsters in sympathy with the strik
ers. The anti-Ward teamsters loaded or
unloaded their wagons with provoking
slowness and told the police, "We are not
pieces of machinery."
Many of the teamsters In the street lead
ing to the freight house lns.'sted that they
had been waiting for two hours, and when
the police made way for the Ward wagons
to be loaded earlier than other wagons
there was a loud complaint from each
teamster. Members of tho Freight Handlers'
union gave indications that unless the
police ceased to give the Ward wagons the
right to unload before teamsters who had
been waiting ahead, a strike among the
freight handlers would be ordered.
The crowd at the West Side warehouse
of Ward & Co. was so unyielding that
when a string of the Arm's wagons reached
the place tho police were forced to use
clubs to make a passageway.
MAN KNOCKED DOWN BY AUTO
D. R. Rundel Steps In Front of Slow
Moving; Machine and Is
As Emll Brandeis of J. L. Brandeis A
Sons was being taken In his automobile
faam his place of business at 6 o'clock last
evening the machine, being driven by his
chauffeur, George Stevens, struck and
knocked down man named D. R. Rundel
at the Sixteenth street crossing of Doug
las street and Inflicted Injurled that may
prove fatal. Mr. Brandeis gave instruc
tions that the man .be taken first to police
headquarters, where Police Surgeons Wig
ton and Kennedy dressed the wounds, and
afterward directed that he be taken to the
Wise Memorial hospital.
Rundel was knocked unconscious and re
mained In that condition after he was
taken to the hospital. He had a cut over
the left eye, a cut on the back of his head
and apponred to be suffering from con
cussion of the brain. Mr. Brandeis gave
Instructions that everything possible be
done for Rundel. The surgeons were un
able to determine the full extent of his
Injuries, as the man has been suffering
from cancer of the stomach and was in a
very weak and emaciated condition.
At the time of the accident the auto
mobile was moving slowly. As it neared
the crossing Rundel had time to go past
the course of the automobile, but he sud
denly and unexpectedly hesitated and
stopped and before the machine could be
turned or stopped completely the man
was knocked down.
Rundel has been In the city only a short
tims and has been taken care of most of
the time at the police station, where he
said he was aided by charity to get to
Oman a from Minnesota. He said he was
run over by a wagon last October and In
jured In the abdomen, and has never since
been well. He is about 80 years old.
At a late hour last night Rundel was
resting easily, but was still unconscious
and the attendants said that the probable
result of the wounds could not be de
termined at that time.
Man is a millionaire many times over in
the possession of blood cells. Woman is
not quite so rich, for scientists hsve proven
that the normal number of red blood cells
in adult men is five million; in women four
end a half million, to the square millimeter.
The normal cell is not absolutely round
in health, but, in disease, becomes tx
tremely irregular in shape. Every one can
he in perfect health and possess the mil
lions of rich red blood corpuscles if thev
only know how to go about it. Dr. R. V.

to prepare for a long life by observing na
ture's laws. In the first place, if yonr
digestion is faulty, snd the food yon
eat is not taken up by. the blood and assim
ilated properly, you need s tonic snd diges
tive corrector, something tbst will increase
the red blood corpuscles; he believes in
going about this in nature's own wsy.
Years ago, in his active practice, be found
that sn alterative extract of certain herbs
sud roots, put up without the use of alco
hol, would put the liver, lungs snd heart
4nto fuller snd more complete action. This
medicine he called Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery. Ey assimilating the
food eaten, it nourishes the blood, snd, in
stead of the ill-shaped corpuscles, the per
son's blood tikes on a rich red color snd
the corpuscles are more nearly round.
Nervousness is only the cry of the starved
nerves for food, and when the nerves are
fed en rich trd blood the person loses
those irritable feelings, sleeps well at night
and feels refreshed in the morning.

PROPRIETOR BUFFALO LITHIA SPRINGS, VA.
David Bispham was the offering of the
Omaha Concert promoters Inst evening nt
the First Baptist church and It proved
not only the most enjoyable event of the
series but also one of the most pleasant
song recitals ever given In the city. The
noted baritone was at his best and those
who have henrd him In the past know that
this means much. In addition to this the
program was a most satisfactory one.
The concert drew out a fashionable audi
ence as well as a large percentage of the
music lovers of the city, which was of it
self an incentive to conscientious effort.
The first on the program wan a group of
four songs so varied In character as to
demonstrate his versatility and In which
he cleurly proved himself a master. The
group comprised. "O, Ruddier Than tho
Cherry" (Handel), "The Monk," (Myer
beer), "I'm a Roamer" (Mendelssohn) ami
The Erlking" (Schufcert).
Next cam" selections from operas, "The
Evening Star" (Wagner), sung In German;
The Page's Song" from Falstaff (Verdi),
given In Italian, and "The Prologue."
With exquisite tenderness "Bongs My
Mother Tnught Me" brought back memo
ries of years long past to his auditors, and
the old favorite, "The Two Orenidlfrs,"
was appreciated. Instead of "Tho Sandn
o' Dee" (Clay), Mr. Bisphnm was henrd In
Drink to Me With Thine Eyes." followed
by "The Tretty Creature" (storancei. ine
beautifully' harmonious . "Who Knows?"
from "The Spanish Duel" (Max Hrlnrlch).
I.,ady Moon" (Bruhns) nnd the trag'c

Harold A. Smith as accompanist was In
every way satisfactory.

KANSAS CITT, April 17.-The city to
day was without a city clerk, a comptroller,
an assessor or a city physician, the result
of the deadlock In the council In which
the democrats, who are In the majority,
have refused to confirm the appointments
for those offices presented by Mayor Jumes
II. Ncff, republican.
The terms of the four principal officers
expired today. The office of theclty clerk
was locked and the key turned over to
the mayor. The offices of collector and
assessor wire closed to the transaction of
all new business, but the clerks continued
to work for the remainder of the day to
close up the books. The work of the city
physician was carried on by the Health
board. Other offices In the city government
were more or less affected by the shutting
down of the departments named and much
of the city's business was at a standstill.
The council deadlock was broken to
night and the mayor's nominees for sp
