MORE EFFECTIVE THAN
HE THOUGHT POSSIBLE
A Well Known Insurance Man Tells
of His Recent Experience.
WORKS WITH MUCH LESS EFFORT
Ifartl Say fw TonlO Valaable,
Judging from Ilia Conditio
id the Great Benefit
"Judging from my own experience, I
do not hesitate to say that 'Tona Vita,'
as It Is called, Is an extremely valuable
preparation," said Mr. Q. V. Martin, a
well known insurance man of 1511 North
Thirty-eighth street, city, recently. "In
fact," continued he, "It has proved mora
effective than I had believed possible.
"So far as my own caso Is concerned,
I have been In a run-down condition for
the past six months, tiring easily and
being troubled with sleeplessness. I
seemed to lack vitality, as 1 caught cold
very readily and my digestion and appe
tite were far from what they should be.
Nervousness was also part of my trouble,
and I was depressed and run down.
"My condition grew so serious that I
had to be attended by several physicians.
Nothing aeeined to do me any good, how
ever, and I can say that I now feel
stronger than for a long time. I have
more energy and my work Is done with
much less effort. I sleep and eat better
and feel as though rejuvenated. I am a
well man. I take pleasure In Buying that
this preparation lias been far more ef
fective than any medicine 1 have ever
One of the specialists who are meeting
the public in Omaha and explaining the
nature of the new tonic said: "We are
receiving Indorsements from scores of
men and women of unquestioned Integ
rity here In Omaha, who have found
'Tona Vita' to be all we claim, but we
are especially glad to receive statements
of this character from men who are so
well and favorably known as Mr. Mar
tin. "We want the men and women of tbls
city who are suffering with what Is
called a 'run-down condition' to try this
medicine. If the results are not entirely
satisfactory we refund the price paid for
the medicine. We know we have the
greatest tonic ever offered the public In
this country, but, we can't prove this to
an individual unless he or she Is willing
to try It. Our time in Omaha Is limited,
so that we are anxious to ha"3 as many
people as we can conveniently talk to
call during the next few days. W are
meeting a great many people and the
numbers are Increasing each day, but
when we realize how many debilitated,
nervous people there are In this big city
who would be so greatly benefited by
'Tona Vita' It seems positively wicked
that eltner through carelessness or skep
ticism they do not try this tonic."
The specialists are at the Brandels
Drug 'Dept., 16th and Douglas Streets,
South Side, Main Floor, from 9 a. m. to
6 p. m. daily. Adv.

A pig. a clock, soup bones snd vege
table bouquets, odd lobs for men and
women, underwear for children and stout
hoes for all tlsea, ages and seaeo
ihese are the things which, according to
Misn Nellie Magee, are most needed at
the City Mission.
Mias Magee wants one large pig for
the Thanksgiving dinner to be given at
the Mission for the Mothers' club De
The dinner to be given at the Mission
for the Mission mothers numbering over
100 women is an annual event. They, to
gether with the youngest children which
cannot be left at home, gather st the
.Mission for the heartiest, happiest dinner
of the whole year. Miss Magee has had
promises of chickens snd vegetables and
acks only the pig to make the feast oore
i'lete. Three Figs Last Year.
Last year three small roasted sucklings
were the main article of food at the
Mothers' dinner. Miss Mage thinks that
one large pig will make a more impres
sive centerpiece for the huge dinner table.
It ia also a custom at the City Mis
sion to furnish a little snack to the
hungry ut before the evening prayer
and song service. The woman who for
several years supplied the meat bones
for soup has moved sway from Omaha.
Miss Magee thinks that hot soup more
nourishing for cold Insldes than coffee
and has the big kettle all ready to sim
mer the bones and vegetables. . Miss
Magee Is looking for odd Jobs for men
and women who come to her for help.
Many of the men, says Miss Magee, have
been doing farm work and have no work
for the winter.
Warm underwear for the children Is
the thing needed perhaps more than any
thing else. So many little boys and girls
down City Mission way have chilly little
bodies for lack of warm underthlngs
that Miss Magee cannot supply them all.
Miss Magee knows on little r-year aid
girl who cannot get out to go to school
because she has no shoes. A siege of
diphtheria has gone through the family
which numbers seven children, a mother
and a father who is having a bard time
to tide over the cold weather. Shoes are
needed, not only for the 'youngsters but
also for the grown-ups.
The need for clothing and food at the
City Mission will be greater this year
than formerly because the Mission will
not get the usual donation from the pub'
lie schools. The schools assigned to give
their Thanksgiving offerings to the
Mission are so widely separated that It
cannot afford to send for them. The
Mission does not boast a wagon and
horse to call for donations and will be
glad to have them brought to the Mission,
116 North Tenth street.
The City Mission was the one bright
spot In the neighborhood of North Tenth
street yesterday. The' big coal stove was
working overtime, the canary birds were
singing, the sunshine smiled in and Mies'
Magee was smiling too. A big laboring
man was diligently sewing the torn
places In his canvass Jacket and another
man was waiting for Miss Magee to get
aim a Job. .
Turkey Day Dinner
to Be Cheaper This
Year Than Year Ago
Turkeys are I to 4 cents cheaper this
Thanksgiving season than a year ago.
Price for tomorrow run ail the way
from M to M cents, with the majority of
shops selling at 10 to M cent a Last year
most of the shops Quoted prices from
IB to J cents.
Ducks are quoted for tomorrow's sals
at 14 to 18 cents; gees at It to IS cent
and chickens at 10 to 13t cents, the
prices being under those of last year.
Cranberries, however, are higher than
year ago, so much higher that the
restaurants which served cranberry pi
last year do not have , it on their list
this season. Oood cranberries are U4j
to IS cents a quart; last Thanksgiving
they were to UVt cents.
Bom of the outside store quoted
turkeys Monday at U rent, but have been
forced to cut. Martin Reura says the
market via flooded and that the prU-e
will stay down till all ar supplied for
their Thanksgiving dinner.

Wk'rt Peraalt th beelaaa
tie f th Kind f
Th ipour of th Kettle Hirer and
the Republla Creosote pavlog Mock com
bine to throttle competition and obtain
a grip on th paving contracts of Omaha
as well -as other oitlea all over the
country has thrown light on a certain
transaction which Involved W.000 of
Omaha taxparera' money.
On March 7, ML bids were received
for changing the rlass of pavement on
Sixteenth street from remain to th
viaduct. These bids cam from Charles
E. Fanning, till then connected only with
th brick paving combine and the (leneral
Contracting company of 440 Temple Court,
Minneapolis, representing the Kettle
River and Republlo companies. Fanning'
bid was 2 ) per square yard. The Gen
eral Contracting company's bid wss 13.44
per equar yard. Both these bidder
specified th block to be used -long leaf
yellow pltie and each bidder stated that
th material for the Job would be ob
tained from th Kelt! River Quarries
eompany of Minneapolis, Minn. Ne other
bids on any other material were received.
Brfore Fanning was taken Into the
creosote combine the Kettle River com
pany sent rtpreeentatlvee to Omaha and
these men worked In the Sixteenth street
district. Finally they secured a petition
asking that the pavement from Farnam
to the viaduct be changed and that creo
sote be used.
Cheaper Pavement Promise.
Vnder th charter provision the peti
tion had to be recognised and bids ad
vertised for th advertisement stating that
only creosote block would be used. The
Kettle River company had promised to
cheapen the cost of the pavement ma
terially but the bids when received did
not carry out th promises made by flielr
representative to the property-holders
on Sixteenth street.
According 1o George W. Crslg, city en
gineer, th Job would have totaled about
1 43.000, but th Kettle River company was
Informally called on to complete the work
for 140,000, which wss the ectunl amount
paid by th taxpayers for th entire pave
ment. That this amount was In excess
of the amount the pavement ought to
have really cost I the opinion of soint
of the men concerned with the contract.
Fanning had been bidding on brlrk con
tracts aa low as fl.TS per square yard.
Another paving contract secured by
Fanning through the Kettle River com
pany was on Howard street from Six
teenth to Seventeenth. This was on
March 14, mi. The Ueneral Contracting
eompany had withdrawn from the fluid
and Fanning had the only bid on creo
sote. Ills bid was 13.30 per square yard, J
Hugh Murphy bid fl. 75 on Purlngton brick
and tl.CS on asphalt. Th Bryan-Mc
Laughlin company bid II. M on aap'halt-
Thls district had been ordered repaved
under a provision of th charter giving
the mayor and the council that authority.
Th provision of th Charter giving con
tractors th privilege of specifying their
own brand of brick or creosote was used
by Fanning and th Kettle River com
pany In securing both creosote contracts
Although the exposed combine was for
the purpose of securing contract, for
creosote blocks to have been let In 1910,
at whfeh time the Republlo and Kettle
River companies sgrred to split busi
ness and agreed on the contractor be
fore the Job was let, the two Omaha con
tracts, amounting in all to $.,;;, are be
lieved to have been mutually profitable
to th two companies.
