dark shadows appear under her eyes,
she has backache, headaches, bearing
down pains, nervousness, Irregularities
or the blues, she should start at once
to build up her system by a tonic with
apectfio powers, such As Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound.

authorities in finding Charles Karlatrshm.

three weeks ago for the purpose of secur

there, since he came to Omaha, has
caused considerable anxiety.
It waa learned Karlstrahm,. or a man
answering his description, called on Dr.
Robert Gtlmore two weeks sgo, snd It was
then arranged he should take a room at
the Wise Memorial hospital. ' An appoint

where he wAs going and receiving a satis
factory, though Indefinitely reply, the
doctor went Inside to wait for him.
That was the last seen of ths old men

returned Inside the hospital or sent any
word. On coming to Omaha hs had with
him about $200 in cash and his friends ere
grestly worried, lest be haa met foul play,
end sre anxious to receive some Infor
mstlon regarding hint.
