The World' Greatest Medicine
The rapid growth of the Peruna Medi

bualneaa world aa the universal popu
larity of their famous remedy, Peruna.
The plant cover a number of acres, and
employs several hundred people. No
other medicine firm In. the world reaches
anything like the volume of business done
by Dr. Hartman's flrin.
Although Peruna Is a proprietary medi
cine, the details of Its compounding are
in strict accordance with pharinacenutical
discoveries and nothing gives Dr. Hart
man greater pleasure than to shtw Ids
Intimate professional friends through tho
laboratory where Peruna is made.
A Doctor' lrewcription.
For year Dr. Hartman used Peruna in
Ills private practice as a regular prescrip
tion. He had no thought of manufactur
ing it or advertising it as a proprietary
medicine until there was a demand made
upon him by his many friends, who
clamored for the original prescription.

done easily by granting a franchise to
another company. If this gas company
thought for a minute another company
would get Into Omaha the rates would be
lowered at once. Mr. iJcnson and the
council can and will see that the people
of Omaha get lower gas."
Election officers have, been Instructed In
certain dutly with respect to the voting
machines iy circulars sent to each by City
Attorney flreen. One of the points made
clear Is that before the voting begins the
machinea must be examined In the presence
of audi party watchers as may be there
to ascertain that all counters are set at
sero. After quoting sections of the voting
machine law the circular reads:
You will thus observe that before the
polls are open It Is made the duty of the
election officers having the keys of the
machine to open the machine so us to ex-
pone the counters on the back of the ma
chine and to carefully scrutinize each
counter In the presence of whatever party
watchers may be present, and to ascertain
and to certify xn the return sheet that
each and every rounter was registered
sero before the polls opened and before
the seal was broken on the operurlng lever
In front, and If any counter when thu
examined by you is not found to be regis
tered at aero, to note what the counter
does actually register before the polls ar
opened and to enter the actual reKlstra
tlon on the return sheet, and thus show
at what number the machine was started
on any particular counter.
Special policemen are needed by the city
