The superb dining room facilities of
the new Armour plant office building
were inaugurated by Manager R. C.

For Those Who Suffer
Pains in Stomach Back
(By Samuel Hamilton, M. D.)
In recent years investigation by
means of X-rays, the observations of
scientists such as Cannon, Grutzner,
Pavlov, Fowler, Hawk, prove that an
abundance of water is necessary to
good bodily housekeeping. To drink
a pint of hot water before meals is
a good practice, and those suffering
from a catarrhal condition of the
stomach will find benefit in adding
about 10 grains (one-sixth of a level
teaspoonful) of baking-soda, drinking
it an hour before each meal.
If your kidneys are sick, or you
suffer with lumbago or rheumatism
at times, pain in the back or back
of the neck, take a little Anuric before
meals. 'Anuric (double strength) can
be found at any good drug store, and
was first discovered by Dr. Pierce of
the Surgical Institute in Buffalo,
When run-down, when life indoors
has brought about a stagnant condi
tion in the circulation most every
one is filled with uric acid especially
is this so of people past middle age.
This uric acid in the blood often
causes rheumatism, lumbago, swelling
of hands or feet, or a bag-like condi
tion under the eyes. Backache, fre
quent urination or the pains and stiff
ness of the joints and high blood
pressure are also often noticed.
Everyone should drink plenty of pure
water and exercise in the open air as
much as possible. I have found that
Anuric is an antidote for this uric acid
poison and that it will dissolve the
accumulation of uric acid in the body
much as hot water dissolves sugar.

his remarks, referred to the excellent
system with which stock was handled.
"In the last nine months there have
appeared in my office but six shippers
who have had Complaint for the

interests in handling the stock. A.
F. Stryker emphasised this remark
by saying that his office, which is the

MADAME Fashion has been "quick-stepping" these

"Omaha's discriminating women must have some
thing that is smart, distinctive, yet practical and attrac

"Here is a group of smartly tailored suits in fact, so
tailored that one would almost call them mannish then,'
too, there are girlish models of box pleated and norfolk
effects but oh, pshaw, what is the use of enumerating
every suit I have," said Madame Fashion, "because I'm
sure I have a suit to fit every feminine taste in Omaha."
And the result is the varied group of strictly new
