With Suggestion That It Is
Fair to All.
One of the most important matters
I which will come up for consideration

l be tho reapportionment of tho state in
I to legislative districts and the assign
ment of the number of senators and

ment, of which Senator Charles E,

eration and several .meetings will be
held this week on the subject.
Senator Stookcy has a bill tor the
reapportionment now beforo this com
mittee. The bill leaves tho boundaries
of the districts as tbe are fixed by
tho constitution. It provides for a 6on
ato of twenty-two members and a house
of fifty-five members. Salt Lake's rep
resentation in the houso is increased
from ten to seventeen members and in
the sonato from five to eiht members.
Weber, Utah and Box Elder 'counties
are each sriven another representative
and the Twelfth senatorial t district is
given another senator. To this bill some
opposition has arisen "becauso of the
large number of representatives in the
lorrislatnrn (riven to Salt Lake.

THREE BRIDGES NEEDED
IN WASHINGTON COUNTY
Representative Morris of Washington
county says that his county Is In need
of three bridges and he has Introduced
a bill In the houso appropriating J6500 for
their construction as follows S5000 for
a bridge over Shoal creek, on the main

bridge over Ash creek, on tho main road

over tho Santa Clara creek, on the main
I road near Chadburn's ranch. ,
I I Away With Pills and Purgatives
I The habit of taking salts or strong cathartic pills
every time you want to loosen the bowels is a bad one,
for in timo you will destroy the activity of tho digestive
tract and you will have to rely entirely on medicines for
action. This is not a pleasant thing to look forward, to.
From infancy to old age the use of strong purgatives
should be avoided. This can be dono by tho use of a
mild laxative like Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. "While
it is mild enough for a baby to use yet it is strong
enough to give action in the most, robust constitution.
The lettors of indorsement tho doctor gets are .from no
, one class mothers who take it. mothers who give it to
; f babies and children, people in the prime of hfe,and old
I people. It is successtui with them all. It is in truth the
m ideal remedy for constipation, indigestion, biliousness,
M heartburn, gas on the stomach, sour stomach and all
1 1 other manifestations of stomach, liver or bowel trouble.
A bottle can be obtained of any druggist at fifty cents
; or one dollar, but you can make a free trial of it by writ-
ing Dr. Caldwell for a freo sample
igggpgjll. bottle. He will be glad to send it
ro yu ou cannot do bettor than
' V WW rea(- -eerB Pointed hero, and
Vi' jgjjK tl then act on -cr suggestions.
Ill i i jLt&L Dr Caldwell doa not feel that the
j j 4 tjSBSx&ffS purchase of his remedy ends his ob-
1 1 j SS8IEfk. ligation. He has specialized In stom-
lijl I vSffwPtelt flW. ach, liver and bowel dltea&ea for over
ill p (TkSwjB!S 'orty yea0 and will be pleased to

The following aro some extracts from letters Dr. Caldwell
"I received the sample of Syrup Pepsin, liked it, and
have bought a regular bottle of our druggist It Is an ex
cellent medicine and very pleasant to take. 1 would not
do without It again." Robert J. Allison, Walnut Bottom, Pa,
"I haven't had a bad spell with my stomach slnc-a taking
the first dose of Syrup Popsln. I continued to take It for
some time, as I had been afflicted for nearlv twelve years
and couldn't expect wonders overnight, but tho fact is I can
cat anything now, and feel as If I had a new lease on life."
G. W. Selby. Brashoar, Mo.
"Your Syrup Pepsin is unquestionably a fine remedy for
Btomach and bowel trouble, and should bo in everv home.
While this la given voluntarily, and comes to you unso
licited, you may use It to promote the sale of your valuable
remedy. May success attend you In tho Introduction of this
fine and valuable medicine." B. B. Gibson, Crystal Springs,
"I received your sample bottle of Syrup Pepnln and liked
it so much that I bought a bottle from my druggist and
have taken nearly all of that and will get another bottle
soon. I like It better than anything of tho kind I have ever
tried." Mrs. John 1. Moore, Clinton, Ky.
"I received your sample bottle and have used two other
bottles besides. I find It a very good medicine. I keep It
In tho house all the tlmo. Would not do without It." Mrs.
Dolllc Graves. Hamilton, Ohio.

be without It." W. L. Bryant. P M., Sardis. Tenn.
