Salter Says Mask 0. K. for
Smoke Fighting; ' 'Useless"
Opinion of Mining Expert
Omaha Fire Chief Orders 60 Army Gas Masks After
Tests in a Smoke-Filled Room at Fire House Proved
Successful Further Tests of Masks for Chemical
Fires to Be Made.
If the kidneys are overworked be
yond their capacity to throw off the
poisons from food-waste, sooner or
later they quit, and Bright s Disease
claims another victim.
If food-waste lies in the bowels it
ferments and creates dangerous poi
sons which pollute the blood. The
kidneys do their utmost to discharge
these poisons from the system. If
you allow this accumulation of food
waste to continue, you're doomed.
Your druggist has a product
called SALINOS, which will com
pletely empty the bowels, including
the lower bowel, where most poisons
are formed. It is pleasant to take,
pleasant in action. Get a bottle. Be
on the safe side. Adv.
Chief Salter of the fire depart
ment takes issue with Dr. Van H.
Manning of the United States bur
eau of mines on the value of army
gas masks as an adjunct in connec
tion with fighting fires.
"The field of usefulness of the
army gas mask," the doctor is quot
ed in a telegram from Washington,
"is confined to certain chemical in
dustries, around smelters and roast
ers, where sulphur fumes are given
off, and in industries using chlor
ine and bleaching powders."
"We have been making tests with
these gas masks in a smoke-filled
room at one of our fire engine
houses," said Chief Salter, "and we
have proved to our satisfaction that
these masks may be used with ad
vantage at least in cases of ordi
nary dense smoke. Our men re
mained in dense smoke for half an
hour with these masks and could
have remained longer if necessary,"
Chief Salter stated.
Satisfactory for Smoke.
"I am not prepared to state that
these masks would serve us in cases
of gas fumes or, for instance, in
a drug store fire, but for ordinary
smoke I am satisfied that these
masks will serve a good purpose.
We have demonstrated the fact in
"We will make further tests for
gas fumes, but it is pTobable that
we will have to use special protec
tion in cases of combating a fire
when we encounter gas fumes from
chemicals or other sources.
"It is my opinion that the dealers
of the high-priced masks made es
pecially for fire department purposes
are doing all they can to discourage
the sale of army gas masks which
are being sold for $15 each."
Sixty Masks Ordered.
"We have ordered 60 of these
army gas masks for use here and I '
know that they will prove to be
valuable accessories in connection
with combating ordinary smoke." j
Dr. Manning pointed out that it :
was particularly dangerous to use
the army gas mask where gas was
confined as it was intended for use
in the open.
"Furthermore," he said, "carbon
monoxide, one of the most danger
Mis gases in civil employment, can
'e cor-')ated with the army mask."
The doctor insists that they are al
most worthless in civil employments.
Light Plant Owned by
City Is Opposed by
The Omaha Manufacturers' asso
ciation is opposed to House Roll
No. 450, providing for the establish
ment and operation of a municipal
electric light plant operated under
the direction of directors of the
Metropolitan Water district.
"The Manufacturers' association
is opposed tq this bill, or any other
measure that provides for the con
fiscation of private property, for the
reason that it is not only an unjust
measure, but will have the effect ot
discouraging the further investment
of capital in industries in this city.
"There is at present a law on the
statute books, passed by the last
legislature, which provides mean;,
for the acquirement of public utili
ties by the vote of the people. It
it is the wish of the people of Oma
ha to acquire an electric light plant
then the owners of the presen'
plant should be given the opportun'
ity to realize on the amount invest

Not Catch Terrier
Constable Zach Ellis, attached to
the municipal court, threw up his
hands when he endeavored to serve
a writ of replevin on one fox terrier

"I have actually gained twenty
seven pounds by taking Tanlac ant!
i while I am now past seventy-nine
years of age I declare I don't fee!
that old by forty years," was the re
markable statement made by Mrs.
Mary E. Burr of Bradford, Illinois
R. F. D. No. 1, recently.
Mrs. Burr relates some very try
ing experiences of Civil War days
one of which was the loss of her
first husband, who was killed in the
great conflict At the close of the
war she moved to Illinois with her
parents, in an "old covered wagon,"
and remained a widow until Novem
ber of last year when she was hap
pily married again, becoming the
wife of a prosperous farmer of
"Those Civil War days certainly
were. dark ones," said Mrs. Burr,
"and if I should live to be twice a:;
old as I am now I could never for
get the terrible suffering and sorrow
so many had to go through. I feel
sure the nervous strain and hard
ships that came to me was what
caused my health to break down
rater on. But while I have seen the
dark and bitter side of life I have
also enjoyed the greater part of it.
I had always been blessed with fairly -good
health until about thirty years
ago, when all of a sudden I just
seemed to collapse almost complete
ly. This was about the hardest trial
of my life, as I had always been in
the habit of getting out doors, rais
ing chickens, gathering fruit and
doing lots of outdoor work.
"I commenced first to be bothered
with my stomach. Every little bit I
ate would sour and form a sort of
gas which caused me the most awful
suffering. This gas would press
against my heart and I would be so
short of breath for hours that I
could not walk. If I even tried to
walk I would get so dizzy, weak and
trembly that I would lose my bal
ance. My nerves got in such a bad
shape that I could hardly sleep and
would just roll and toss all night j
long. I just couldn't stand a bit of
noise. Just the chickens cackling ;
would almost drive me distracted. I
did eat caused me so much pain
that I would almost die. I kept go
ing down until I was almost a com
plete wreck. I had lost so much in
weight that none of my clothes fit
ted me and I "was so weak that I
could hardly walk across the room,
let alone do my work.
"I tried most everything, but
nothing helped me and I had given
up nearly all hpoe of ever being
well again. While I was on the
lookout trying to find something to
help me a friend of mine who had
taken Tanlac with wonderful results
advised me to try it. I started on
Tanlac and the way it helped me
right from the start was almost like
a miracle. I have taken twelve bot
tles now and have not only been re
lieved entirely of all my sufferings
but I am enjoying better health than
I have in thirty years. My meals
taste as good to me as they did years
ago. I can eat justj anything with
out the slightest trouble afterwards
and'I simply sleep like a child. I
can now easily do all my work, in
cluding my washing, and my
strength for a woman of my age is
justf remarkable. I am perfectly
well and enjoy life as well as I ever
did. Just lots of people have asked
me what I have been taking to make
me look so well and it's a pleasure
for me to tell them Tanlac. I know
as well as I know I am here that I
owe my health and happiness to this
grand medicine and I will always
