"Other cities which now have street rail

fast as possible," said R. A. Leuaaler.
secretary and assistant general manager of
the Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Rail
way company, In reference to the action
of aome of the members of the real es
tate exchange. In recommending that the
street railway compiny change Its system
of cross town lines to the loop system.
"The disadvantages of the loop system
are almost too numerous to mention. The
loop system make a great congestion of
cars In the crowded district of a city,
and makes a big delay to all cars on every
Hue. If some blockade happens on ' the
loop, either by reason of fire, or a dis
abled car or a broken-down wagon, the
entire system Is crippled and the cars are
tied up on every line.
"The best modern accepted practice Is
to utilize as many of the down town streets
as possible, Instead of confining the traf
fic to the few streets which could be used
by loops. It takes perhaps ten minutes
longer for a passenger to go from one
section of the city to another where the
loop system is in use. In Des Moinee they
are doing tway with the loop system aa
fast a possible, as the people have become
heartily tired of It."

It takes more than ft little thing to mar

to be married simultaneouslythat Is,
Lambert wished to be espoused to Eva at
exactly the time time that the nuptial

three. Accordingly these four Journeyed
to Omaha from Thurston, where they live,
Mr. and Mrs Ell Calvin Fowler, parent
of the brides, accompanying them.
Picking up a half dozen relatives the
party first invaded the marriage license
bureau In the court house' and after Mr.
Fowler had given his consent to the mar
riage of Miss Ella Fowler, who Is only 17,
the company, augmented by ten or twelve
clerks and a few newspaper persons,
marched Into County Judge Leslie's pri
Lambeart Engelhart wore a green neck
tie and had a red handkerchief tucked
into the breast pocket of his coat. IDs
brother'a scarf-was of red and hla handker
chief conversely waa of emerald hue. Miss
Ella Fowler had on a brown hat, white
waist and a brown skirt, while her sister
had adopted a color scheme of blue.
The elder pair were first married and
Judge Leslie began to read the lines
uniting Mat and Ells, Fowler. Right here
a delay occurred. No one had risen to
answer the always unanswered question as
to anyone knowing why this man and
this woman should not be united into
holy wedlock, but the trouble lay in another
direction. The numerous relatives were
kissing all hands no, lips around and
the second bridal pair Just .had to con
gratulate the ncwlyweds before they them
selves were married.
When the ceremony had been finally
performed, a second kissing bee proceeded.
At length the echoes of smack upon
smack after the Invariable fashion of
echoes, died away and the whole party
went forth to eat a wedding breakfast.
All sorrow that the wedding had to be
successive and not synchronoua was now
forgotten. Ah! me.

maining orders for enring goods. By
March 1, when the work on fall garments
begins, we will have a complete new force
without taking any of the old garment
workers back. The new force will come on
and make several desired changes In the
condition of our factory."
According to I. Glnsburg, who repre
sented the newly-organized local of the In
ternational Ladies' Garment Makers union,
he went to the factory early Thursday
ornlng to present a proposition which the
workers desired to make, as a local union.
to President Engleman. The head of the
Novelty Skirt company refused to discuss
Glnsburg says the proposition consisted
In asking that the company pay the work
ers every week Instead of every two weeks;
reinstate two men who were discharged and
raise the salaries of several workers who
were doing the same class of work for $14
per week which two other workers were
doing and receiving per week.
'We also proposed to stand bv the
wemen workers," said Ginsburg. "There
are girls working in the factory for from
$( to $10 who are working right by the side
of men who are getting from $10 to $14."
L. V. Guye, organizer for the American
Federation of Labor, was present in the
meeting which followed the refusal of Mr.
Engleman to receive the proposition from
Glnsburg, and .explained that many of the
vyorkers had only recently joined the
union, and since the force was now union
ized, the time waa ripe that some readjust
ments In salaries be made.
President Engleman Bald: "As for paying
weekly, we just as soon pay every Satur
day as not, but will not permit drawing
through the . week.
As for raising the pay of the two men
who are drawing $14 per week, simply
because two other men in the shop were
drawing $25, such a thing would be unfair
and unjust, aa the $14 men made not only
Inferior garments, but fewer of them than
the better paid workers.'

aftsr meals I would be In pain, which
would not leave me altogether until nearly
time for the next meal, I had to be ex
tremely careful In what I ate. as I could
only digest the simplest food. My appetite
was very poor and I was nervous and III
nourished, due to the failure of my food to

and lacked vitality. I did not sleep well,
only getting about four hours' sleep a
night, and tossing about even when asleep.
I would wake In the morning Just as

I have been in this condition for' a long
time and have tried in every way to find
something that would help me. 1 have
been discouraged diising the past year to
sucn an extent that I did not believe I
would ever be well again. I started to
take this medicine with very llttlo faith
In It, but I thought perhaps It would do "
me some good for a while at any rate. It
has done more for me tiian I ever hoped
It would. I now have a fine appetite and
eat anything I choose. I have no longer
any gas In my stomach and I sleep well at
night. I have gained weight and strength,
and no longer have the dull, tired feeling
that troubled me constantly for several
years. There Is no question but that Cooper
has a medicine that, will work wonders for
stomacl. trouble. It is tho only thing I
have found that helped me In the slightest."
