"I shall flgjit the proposition from the

. Declaring that the participation of hir
men in the municipal parade on May 35
will be of no benefit, either to the city or
to the department, George Clatg, city en
gineer, has declared himself against the
project. Mr. Clalg contend that the city
will be a big loser If his men are taken
from their work on that day.
'"I oan't see where any benefit will ac
crue from such a procedure." said Craig
Saturday morning. "The expenses of this
department run In the neighborhood of 1500
a day. Just where the city would be bene
fited by having these .men trail up and
down the street when they anould be at
work is beyond my comprehension.
"I am decidedly opposed to It.. However,
if the resolution, as passed by the council
last Tuesday night maintains, the depart
ment will be represented In force. But I
thing It a great mistake."
A resolution, passed by the city council,
directed the heads of all departments to
participate in the parade and to provide all
apparatus that belong to the various de
partments. "I am heartily in accord with the parade,
a far a the police and fire departments
are concerned." continued Craig. "The men
of these departments, uniformed, will pre
sent an Imposing sight. Rut to have 'a lot
of laborers trailing along behind I out uf
the question, to my way of thinking."

It la the duty of every expectant
mother to prepare her system for the
coming of her little one ; to avoid as
far aa possible the suffering of such
occasions, and endeavor to pass
through the crisis with her health
and strength unimpaired. This she
may do through the use of Mother's
Friend, a remedy that has been so
long in use, and accomplished so
much good, that it is in no sense an
experiment, but a preparation which
always produces the best results. Jt
is for exernal application and so pen
etrating in its nature as to thoroughly
lubricate every niuscle, nerve and ten
don involved during the period before
i baby comes. It aids nature by ex
j panding the skin and tissues, relieves
i tenderness and soreness, and perfectly
: prepares tbe system for natural and

sands of mothers, and its use will
prove a comfort and a benefit to any
