THE " EEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 251916
IS SEEKING HELP
Says There Are Hundred Job
ber and Manufacturer! wno
Should Aid in Work.
BUT FEW AS SUBSCRIBERS
About 100 jobbers and manufaetur
ers in Omahi re "pikers" in the opin
ion of the arovernina; committee
the traffic bureau of the Commercial
i-luh. That is. they are "pikers
that they haven't come into the circle
and helDed stand the expense of mak
ing the fight for the last two years
for proper freight rates in Nebraska.
No, the bureau ooes not me on
word "pikers" in addressing these 100
jobbers and manufacturers, but it will
nevertheless write them a letter. It
wants to see them come in and throw
their bit in the general pot to keep
up the fight. Clarke Coit, chairman
of the governing committee of the
traffic bureau, and E. J. McVann, man
ager of the bureau, are to address a
letter to these jobbers and point out
to them that certain jobbers and man
ufacturers in Omaha have been stand
ing all the expense of making a big
fight that is to be of benefit to all.
Lett Than Half Subscribe.
1 About fifty jobbera and manufac
turers of Omaha are subscribers to
the bureau and are thus standing the
whole expense of making this fight
There are at least ISO jobbers and
manufacturers in Omaha shipping
under class rates that should take part
in this fight, according to members
of the governing committee. The com
mittee believes h is time for a gen
eral awakening. . ...
The Nebraska rate situation Is still
in tangle and the bureau wishes to
hurry the untangling. The disposition
of the railroads, as the bureau sees
it, is to seek a readjustment of the
rate as between competing cities and
the territory) they seek to cover, to
as to put it back to somewhere near
where it used to be, since the Inter
state Commerce commission has
thrown oat the Nebraska rates of
?:enerai order No. 19. The bureau
eels the necessity of having this re
adjustment made as toon as possible,
and wishes to go to work and help in
. this readjustment .'

y (By L. H. SMITH, M. D.)
In spite of the best care one takes
of oneself,' any part of the human ma
chine is liable to become out of order.
The. most important organs are the
stonSach, heart and kidneys. '
The kidneys are the scavengers and
they work day and night in separating
the poisons from the blood. Their sig
nals of distress are eaily recognized
and include such symptoms as back
ache, depressions, drowsiness, irrita
bility, headaches, dizsiness, rheumatic
twinges, dropsy, gout. ,
The very, best way to restore the
kidneys to their normal state is to
drink plenty of pure water and obtain
a small amount of An uric, which is
dispensed by most every druggist
Anuric is inexpensive and should be
taken before meals. It is much more
potent than lithia and many find that
Anuric- dissolves uric acid as water
does sugar ,
People are realising more and more
every day that the kidneys, just as do
the bowels, need to be flushed occa
sionally. The kidneys are an elimina
tive organ and are constantly work
ing, separating the poisons from the
blood. Under this continual and per
petual action they are apt to congest,
and then trouble starts. Uric acid
backs up into the system, causing
rheumatism, neuralgia, dropsy and
many other serious disturbances. It
means that you are a victim to uric
acid poisoning. . Then ask your drug
gist for Anuric, which was first dis
covered by Dr. Pierce of the Surgi
cal Institute in Buffalo, and , which
is dispensed by nearly every drug
gist in the land. Advertisement
