all day. the principal busienss bring
providing for replacing the- water plant
f'f the Teru Normal, destroyed by fire
recently. It Is estimated ft fireproof
building for tho pumping plant will coat
between $2,500 and $3,000 and the execu
tive committee of the board waa em
powered to advertise for blda and let the
contract. Dlds for a pumping engine
ranged from eVJJ for a twenty-horse-power
gasoline engine to lU for a
thirty-horsepower coal oil engine. The
lotting of this contract Also vs left to
the executive commlttoc.
The athletic board of tho Peru Normal
reported that It had wound up the season
with all bills paid and 1.3S In tho treas
ury, against a deficit of $200 lat year,
which had been paid out current re
ceipts and some cash funds which the
board had granted permission to use
for this purpose.
Different la Coal Welghta.
The Peru Normal also reported some
differences in weights of coal between
the school authorities and the White
breast Coal company, the contractor. On
thirteen carloads there was a shortage
of twenty-six ton from billed weight,
which neither the railroad nr the coaJ
company was willing to stand, one as
serting ho weights were correct as
billed and the other denying any re
sponsibility. The board decided It would
make the coal company a proposition to
split tho difference and pay for thirteen
tone, the Company to lose thirteen. The
offer was based on the fact that there
was some question about the accuracy of
the scales at Peru, where a portion of
the coal was received and weighed.

Presidential Primary Uallot.
The attorney general has given an
opinion In response to a query from the
secretary of stale, regarding the mini
mum of names required on a petition to
plaj-e tlie names of a candidate for presi
dent and vies president &n the preferen
tial primary ballot. After quoting sec
tion 1-B, chapter 40, of the session laws
of 1911, the attorney general says:
The latter part of this Section is meant
to ;id e: z. the filing of petitions for can
tildutes . ..r president and vice president
of tlie Lulled lU. The manning of
this section is not very plainly expressed.
However, I think the legislature Intended
that such petitions should be slfmed by
lis sumo number of electors as petitions

when so signed are entitled to be filed
with the secretary of state.
Section &;, chapter 4. session laws of

primary ballot unless at least thirty days
prior to such primary, either he or twenty-five
qualified electors of the party

shall have filed a written applloatlon with
the proper authority. This Is the pro
vision of law which relates te the nomina

intention of Its projectors was to place

Remarkable Statement Made Re

lllm Hetlef from the
Very Start. v
One of the most Interesting statements
yet made In connection with the Intro
duction of the remarkable new tonlo,
"Tons Vita," Is that which was given
recently by C. J. Simpson, a well tknown
traveling salesman for the Prince Albert
Tobacco company, residing at No. 2201
Pouglas St., city.
Mr. Simpson said: "For the past year
my health has steadily failed until I was
forced to relinquish my position. I was
a nervous wreck, and in recent months
I have had a complete breakdown. The
slightest noise excited me. 1 could nol
sleep at night, but would toss from pillow
to pillow for hours. I was always
haunted with a fear that a great calam
ity was about to happen. In fact, I was
generally a miserable man.
"I heard about the new medicine. 'Toni
Vita,' which Is belnj: Introduced here. I
sent for a bottle- of this remedy. I began
to Improve from the start. I have taken
a full treatment of 'Tona Vita' and nm
now a well man. and give entire credit
to this rentarkable preparation."
People who are nervous and Irritable
have Imperfect digestion and stomach dls
order, lack energy and ambition, feel
melancholy, and discouraged, suffer with
headaches, backaches, poor memory, tin
sound sleep, poor circulation, sallow com
plexlons, and who are susceptible ti;
coughs and colds, are unquestionably suf
fering with that modern plague nervous
debility, say the specialists who are In
troducing "Tona Vita."
"There are thousands of such half-sick
men and women In this country, who
feally do not know Just what Is the trou
ble with them," said one of these spe
cialists. "They struggle aimlessly along until
they become totally debilitated, and often
times they come to us suffering with this
dreadful condition In its most aggravated
"We have a preparation that will posi
