mjnlclr.l affair committee of the Com
mercial club In to malt to the rlty coun
cil, following In the footsteps of tha "MO"
Murk ginger club, for mor. Jights.
Tha flrt move wan 'made hm David
Cole, chairman of the eoipmiU'e, and im
of hla associates, anted the council commit
ter of the whole to keep In mind, what
ever la done to Improve the lighting of the
rli, uniformity, which the committee be
lieves la necessary.
tt la proposed to assi-M the bualneaa
houses something like. SI. GO to $2 per front
foot, payable In arveral yearn, to buy
ornamental and serviieahls light posts
with bracket, supporting five lights. Pax
ton At Vierllng. who made the "Welcome"
arrh, are working n a. dealgn.
These poala will bo Pet every seventy
five feet three to a block. In all the busl
tiM district If the plan li carried out,
while a similar post will be used In the
loe In residence district, except that tha
resilience district posts will have one light
Infirsd of the. .
When tlie business houses have Installed
the post, the electricity will be put on
i.i two iliculis. One will keep the large
I C''t lit the t ip burning all night for light.
The city will be a 'Keel to pay for the cur
r in H run this light. The four smaller
lights on each post will be on another clr
cult that may be turned off at midnight or
earlier, as they will be for Illumination.
The business houses In the block will be
asked to subscribe to a fund to pay the
actual cost of this Illumination.
My using this plan It Is argued that the
city will not only have an economical sys
tem, but the business men will expend less
for supporting the lights on tha posts than
hey me now paying for lights tn tlielr
places of business, which do not make a
very good showing because of the lack of
uniformity. , .. A
The "5o" block boosters Intend to Install
suii lights whetWr other blocks do or not,
and the municipal .affairs committee will
make It a business to take advantage of
the opportunity and light Omaha aa a
metropolitan city deserves to be lighted, aa
well as Illuminate It In the evenings for the
fl coiatlve effect and spirit of eaterplrse
which the abundance of lights Inspires.

opinion the democrats of Omaha will sup
port Mr. Metcalfe In preference to any

doubt that he does intend to run he will
receive strong backing not only In Omaha
and IJncoln, where he Is also very popu
lar, but out In the state aa well."

park, which were so popular laat year, will
be repeated again this summer," said V.
IT. Murray, assistant genersl passenger
agent of the Union Pacific Tuesday.

Judiciary law. The matter I supposed will

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 help can be had, it is better to submit to this ordeal than let
the disease grow and spread. The trouble is that 60 often the wom
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
and safe for delicate women as "Favorite Prescription." It cures
debilitating drains, irregularity and female weakness. It always helps. It
almost always cures.
"Favorite Prescription" Is strictly non-alcoholic, nonsecret,
all Ita ingredients being printed on Its bottlcwrappert con
tains no deleterious or habit 'forming drugs, and every native ...
medicinal root entering into its composition has the full en ' '
' dorsement of those most eminent in the several schools of
Some of the numerous and strongest of professional endorsements ot its ingredi
ents will be found in a pamphlet wrapped around the bottle, also in 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.

Old Man Defies
Thugs With Gun
Stuck in His Face
Erik Peterson, 207 North Twenty-third
street, is past. 60 years old, but he's a
pretty good man yet.
There are two men In Omaha who would
be: willing to attest this fact, but they are
not available Just now.
Monday night about 11:30 Mr. Peterson
was going to his home. He had been to
lodge meeting. On lodge street, between
Seventeenth and Eighteenth, two thuga ac
costed Mr. Peterson. One thrust a re
volver In his face.
"Throw up your hands!" commanded the
coward with the gun.
Mr. Peterson's reply was a blow on the
man's head with hla umbrella.
"I'll not throw up my handa. nor be
held up by you,." he declared.
Coward No. 2. summoned courage enough
to strike 'Mr. .Peterson In the face, knock
ing him to the ground.
This all caused some commotion, and
the commotion attracted people. In the
neighborhood to the scene and the thugs
Mr. Peterson gave no alarm to the police,
nor any other alarm. He came to the busi
ness office of The Bee Tuesday morning
to insert a want ad for his lost glasses
and that is the way the affair came to be
"My only loas or damage," aald he, "was
the loss of my eye glasses."
