LITTI.K WORK FOR THE COCHTCI1..
Allowing; of Rills the Principal Thing;
Considered.
Beyond the reading and allowing of the
usual bills, there ' was little business be
fore the city council at Its first regular
meeting for the new year last night. The
session was a very brief one and the coun
cllmen ndjourned before 9 o'clock, to meet
Wednesday afternoon, when the assess
ment of certain sidewalks will be taken
up. A meeting )f the committee of the
whole will be held Wednesday afternoon
prior to the session of tho council.
About the most Important matter dis
cussed last night waa the need of a new
scavenger ordinance. This matter was
brought up through the complaint of a
resident on Cook avenue, that he had been
unable for three months or more to get
a cesspool cleaned. City Scavenger Dobson
appeared before the city council and ex
plained that his pumping apparatus was
out of repair and that the delay In clean
ing the cesspool In question was not his
fault.
After the matter had been informally
discussed the committee on police, health
and sewers and the city attorney were In
structed to draft a new ordinance and
present came to the council as soon as
possible.
II. H. Van Brunt was given permission
to Install a gasoline tank under the side
walk In front of his new automobile gar
age on Fourth street. The city solicitor
was directed to draw up a contract with
Van Brunt and the owner of the property
whereby the city is to be relieved from
all claims of damage by reason of a pos
sible explosion or other accident.
On recommendation of the Judiciary com
mittee the claim of Mrs. A. D. Porter for
Injuries alleged to have been received from
a fall caused by a defective sidewalk was
ordered for $250.
Councilman Morgan offered an amend
ment to the rules of the council providing
that In future all bills against the city
must be accompanied by an order from the
chairman or majority of the committee.
Heretofore it was only required that bills
be certified to by the person ordering the
goods. Under the amended rule heads of
departments, such as the street commis
sioner and other salaried employes, will
not be able to order goods without the
signature of the chairman of the commit
tee having Jurisdiction over the department.

The Modesty of Women
Naturally makes them shrink from the indelicate questions, the ob
noxious examinations, and unpleasant local treatments, which some
physicians consider essential in the treatment of diseases of women.
Yet. if helD can be had. it is better to submit to this ordeal than let
the disease grow and spread. The trouble is that so often the worn- 'S
an undergoes all the annoyance and shame for nothing. Thousands
of women who have been cured by Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip
tion write in appreciation of the cure which dispenses with the exam
inations and local treatments. There is no other medicine so sure
a t a it T . - o a a

debilitating drains, irregularity and female weakness. It always helps. It
almost always cures.

all its Ingredients being printed on its bottlcwrapper t con

Some of the numerous and strongest of professional endorsements of its ingredi
ents will be found in a pamphlet wrapped around the bottle, also in a booklet
mailed free on request, by Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y. These profes
sional endorsements should have far more weight than any amount of the ordi
nary lay, or non-professional testimonials.
The most intelligent women now-a-days insist on knowing what they take as
medicine instead of opening their mouths like a lot of young birds and gulping
down whatever is offered them. "Favorite Prescription" is of KNOWN COM
POSITION. It makes weak women strong and sick women well.

WRIGHT AFTER BUTTERMEN
Wants a Law to Compel Stamping of
Correct Weight on Packages.
TOO MUCH WATEB, IN PRODUCT
Several Creameries Get Into Trouble
with the Federal Authorities on
This Aceonnt C'hangse at
State House.
(From a Staff Correspondent.!
DES MOINES. Jan. 5. (Special.) State
Dairy and Food Commissioner H. R.
Wright proposes to ask the coming genersl
assembly to amend the pure food law so
as to require manufacturers to place tho
weight of an article on the outside of a
package, as well aa the description of the
contents. This action Is prompted by the
practice of butter manufacturers In this
city and some other points putting but
fourteen and fifteen ounces In a "print"
of butter such as is sold by grocers for
a pound, at 35 cents per pound. This law,
requiring that the weight be printed on the
wrapper, would necessitate creameries giv
ing an honest pound of sixteen ounces in
stead of a Bhort-welght print" aa now
served.
Greed of butter men has led many to
grief throughout the state, according to
Mr. Wright, and many are learning a very
expensive lesson from the hands of the
government. The federal "Oleomargarine
law" contains a clause that no butter
shall contain more than 16 per cent water.
To manufacture it with more than that
amount is, tinder that statute, manufactur
ing adulterated butter. It requires a li
cense of S400 a quarter for such manufac
turing, and a penalty of JfiO for not secur
ing a license when detected. A number of
Iowa creameries have been picked up by
the government Inspectors and heavily
fined. Invariably they appeal to the state
dairy commissioner to save them, and he
Is powerless, where they have violated the
federal law. The establishment of this
clause In the federal law caused experi
ments that have resulted In the knowledge
of how creamery men mix water with
the butter. In some instances they pre
pare their butter with 1M4 per cent water.
This is within the law. If they get a
fraction over 16 per cont they are liable.
One small creamery, not far from this city,
waa totally confiscated by the government.
It was fined $1,200 and could not pay. The
plant was accordingly confiscated and sold
and the operators put out of business.
There are a number of government license
men working In this territory all the time
and Commissioner Wright's advice to the
butter makers all the time is. "Keep
within the law. Run no chances and then
you will be safo."

TAFT REGRETS CRITICISM
Unfair Interpretation is Placed on His
Brother's Withdrawal.
NO P0EMAL STATEMENT MADE
Action Was In Interest of Party Har
mony Becnuse Deadlock Would
Have Had Bad Kffect on
Party Organisation.
AUGUSTA. Ga., Jan. 8.-Regret Is fell
by the president-elect at what both he and
his friends regard as the unfair interpreta
tions and explanations being printed regard
ing the withdrawal from tho Ohio sena
torial contest of Charles P. Taft.
The president-elect contemplates no.
statement for publication regarding the
matter, but in discussing It with frlenrls
has not been uncertain In giving an Idea
of his feelings on the subject. There
seems to be nothing further to be said hy
Charles P. Taft. even thoueh the reason
he assigned for getting out of the race
has- elnce been mado the subject of ad
verse comment. He ia thus left, in . the
eyes of his friends, In a falMo light and It
is iniB wnicn wio piniuniv-oiiv i. itw
keenly. In this connection It Is explained
that the withdrawal waa not made at the
instance of William II. Taft, neither on
the suggestion of Frank H. Hitchcock mil'
of Wade H. Ellis aa has been since printed.
That Charles P. Taft allinlnated himself
from the contest entirely In the interet
of party harmony and on his own initiative
is remarked with vigor. By remaining In
the fight It Is asserted he could have made
possible the election of a "dark horse" at
leaat. But that he recognized that the re
sult of such a course would work havoc
In the republican party In the state and
chose rather to take himself out of the race
Is regarded by his friends as exhibiting a
high degree of loyalty and was exactly
what he called It, a move entirely In the
Interest of party harmony.
Little Rock, Ark., was today added to
the list of southern cities which will claim
the attention of Mr. Taft. when as presi
dent he makes his promised tour of the
south. Tills trip he expects will be mado
next fall. A formal Invitation from Llttlo
Rock was presented to Mr. Taft by Chair
man Tucker of the state central committee
of Arkansas and H. L. Remmell, a prom
inent republican of Little Rock.
Charleston, S. C, Is anxious that Mr.
Taft play golf In that city January 22
when he goes there to sail for Panama on
the 26th. He will endeavor to arrive there
on Saturday afternoon.
