even to accumulate so much as the
price of a push cart out of his specu

"Swat the grocer," he said. "The
procer gets rich enough to own an
automobile and a motor delivery. I
cannot even afford a baby cart for my
littlest bambino. I work hard and
- make only a mere living. I have no
; money ahead, no nothing."

needs and shipped vegetables, berries
and cherries to Sioux City and North

the association of small dealers paid
taxes and made little more than a
' living.. He asked the council to give
them authority, in the shape of a fran
chise, or vested right, to charge 10
cents per day for every person who
backed a , venicie in ironr, ot meir

Where the consolidated ticket of

However, it is reasonably certain that
it will not be in any of the rooms now
occupied by the individual roads. In

three bottles of this Tanlac should do
me more good than other treatment

The above statement was made re

years, half of which time fourteen
years he has held his present posi

no meats at all. I had a great deal
of pain in the region of my kidneys

to get my troubles corrected; but
nothing did me as much good as Tan

willing to' try anything there was a
chance of dying me any good, and
seeing Tanlac so highly recommended
I decided t give it a trial. Well, the
results so far have certainly been
fine. I have already gotten back fif

feel like a new man compared to the
way I felt before I began taking it.

would hurt myself eating, but every
