When a remedy has lived for over thirty years, steadily
growing in popularity and influence, and thousands upon
thousands of women declare they owe their very lives to it
is it not reasonable to believe that it is an article of great
merit? J- . ' . ' x
We challenge the world to show any other one remedy
for a special class of disease which has attained such an
enormous demand, and maintained it for so many years as
has Lydia E.Pinkham' Vegetable Compound, the famous
woman's remedy for woman's ills. Unless it is a very good
medicine and the claims made for it are honest, such a record
would have been impossible fraud or misrepresentations
would long ago have been detected and the business gone
into oblivion. , Read this unsolicited letter:-
Melbourne Imrai .fl Buffered for many years with female
troubles, inflammation, and bearing-down pains, bo that I was
unable to do my work.
" Lydta E.Plnkhftm Vegetable Compound wan recommended,
and I am no thankful for the great Rood it has done me. I feel
that I am a living advertisement for this medicine as I have
Influenced so many of my friends to use It, so thankful am I
that it restored me to health." Mrs. Clara Watermann, It. D. 1,
When a woman like Mrs. Watermann is generous enough
to write such a letter as the above for publication, she
should at least be given credit for a sincere desire to help
other suffering women. For we assure you there is no
other reason why she should court such publicity.
We sky it in all sincerity and friendship try this medicine.
For 30 years Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable
Compound 12 been the standard remedy for
female Ills. No sick woman does justice to
herself who will not try this famous medicine.
Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and
has tbousands.oi cures to its credit.
i -Ma, Mrs. Pinkhara Invlis all sick women
Lr"wr to write ber for advice. She has
guided thousands to health fe of charge.

Judges of the district court of Douglas
county are Inclined to think that the new
law providing for a "non-partisan" judic

nation. No filing fee Is now required, a
petition signed by 1,500 persons being the
requisite. Signatures are, however,- easy
In get to a petition of thia sort and' there
are many members of the bar who would

It doesn't pay foi men to stay out . rate

F. I. Epler, a street oar Inspector and
detective, and A. T. McRea, who lives at

discovered that to be a fact after spending
five hours In jail and then being severely
questioned In police court.
Judge Crawford discharged both men,

O. W. Holdregs, general manager of the
Burlington Hallway company west of the
Missouri river, hss sold his home on
Thirty-second avenue to a corporation
headed by Thomas Matters of Brecken
rldge, Green A Matters, attorneys, and
the tract on which the home stands will
be divided and a number of residences
The corporation which will handle the
property Is known as the Oate City Land
and Investment company. The price paid
for the property is given at S40.000. The
deal was made after a number of promi
nent real estate dealers had made an ap
praisement of the property and estimated
what it would probably bring If divided
Into resident lots.
The plans of Mr. Matters' Oate City
Ind and Investment company are not
definitely known, as Mr. Ma It hers la out
of the olty. but In the transaction he made
It known that he would build a number of
home, some of them quite costly.
Tti Holdrsga residence and the sur
rounding grounds Is one of fhe beauty
spots In Omaha. Tt overlooks Hanscom
park, which Is directly east of the prop
erty. Besides the home a lodge Is main
tained with extensive lawns and grounds.
Mr. Mstters has acquired considerable
property In Omaha within the last year or
two. buying the Judge D. M. Vlnsonhaler
residence for a home on Thirty-ninth be

Next in Unions
This is the Prediction of F. J. Baker,
Head of the Leather
The "organised farmers" Is the next
thing In the line of unions F. J. Baker of
Kansas City, general president of the
Brotherhood of leather Workers, says. He
Is tn Omaha to look after the affairs of
his union, which he says are prosperous.
Mr. Baker thinks unions are on safer
ground today than ever.
"The injunctions Which have been issued
from time to time against officials and
unions have served a different purpose
than was expected," says Mr. Biker.
"Take, for Instance, the Oompers-Mltchell-Morrlson
case. This has done more to
awaken the worklngmen to the fact that If
they wish to protect themselves against un
just actions they must organise, and that
they realise this Is evident by the Increase
tn membership in every International
"The most Important factor In the labor
movement of the future will be the organ
ised farmers. They realise - where they
have been taken advantage of tn the past
and see the remedy in organisation. With
the farmers organised and demanding the
union label on all the goods they buy, and
organised labor demanding -lhe farmer's
label on all produce they buy, there Is no
doubt that unfair employers wilt, find thelv
goods In smstl demand." "
Girl Asks for
Walks in Rain from Southern Fart
of South Omaha to Juve
"May I speak to you, please, jidge?"
Judge Eatelle looked up and then peered
down over his spectacles. He saw before
him a forlorn, bedraggled figure. It was
that of a girl of 11 years of age, slight of
build, anaemic, obviously tired and weak.
Streams of water trickled from the hem of
"Why, what Is It, Ella?" asked the Judge
in a kindly voice.
"I want you to send me to Miss Magea,
please," said the girl, Blla Lesra by name.
"I can't stand it at home any longer."
Judge Estelle looked again at the streams
of wster dripping from the girl's garments.
"Didn't you have an umbrella?" he asked.
"No," said the girl, "and It's a long walk."
"I should think it Is," affirmed the Judge.
The girl had walked In through the rain
all the way from the further border of
South Omaha Tuesday morning. In trouble
at borne, resolute to live there no longer,
she had come to the Juvenile court room
by the only means she had.
Judge Estelle made out the order desired,
loaned her his umbrella and giving her car
fare sent the child on her way to the De
tention Home, of which she Is the first vol
untary entrant on record.
It Is no palace which she has left. Her
father and mother and thirteen other chil
dren live, move and have their being In
two small rooms Into which a tumble

those who desire and are mostly affected by the smart

According' to Msyor Dahlman's opinion

of the law, the Board of Fire and Police
Commissioners Is not "functus officio," as
Attorney L. D. Holmes says It Is.
"There Is no need In looking up the law;
I know that the board haa as much power
now as It ever had, despite the governor's
failure to appoint or reappoint," said the
niitvor with sn emphatic Jerk of his head
In advising against bothering the city at
torney with the matter. The city attorney
when asked About It agreed with the mayor.
"The genera! law holds In this instance
as In all cases," said Mr. Burnam, "and
that law ststes explicitly that all elective
or appointive officers shall hold over until
their successors shall have been elected or
appointed and been cot.flrmed and
"There la no doubt that the excise board

specified In the charter bill which he up
