tissues to be eliminated, but forelirn factors, such termed as UltlC ACID with its
CALCAREOUS NATUKt: (produced by ahoe-mcntIoncil conditions). Is absorbed
by the blood and carried throughout tho human systira.

Tlircatcnin"; Circulars Sent
Voters Over a Deputy Sher
The City Hall sans has commenced a
game of intimidation of Democratic voters
in order to carry the November election.
For some time local Republican organs
have been making loud cries charging
crooked registration on the part of the
Democrats. They havo jet to give details
of Intimidation of voters under the guise of
purging the registration books.
Tho Republican City Committee, or at
least a part of the committee, has been en
gaged in sending circulars broadcast threat
ening voters who have registered, nnd,
whllo no penalty Is threatened, the Intimi
dation Is there. These circulars are signed
by A. Cotty, a deputy under Sheriff John
II. Pohlman. which gives them an appear
ance of authority. The circulars are as
fierce as can be made within tha provisions
of tho postal laws and regulations. In or
der that more secrecy may bo maintained
they are sent out In scaled envelopes and
nre registered. The envelopes bear, in the
upper left-band corner, the card of Hiram
IJojd. a member of the Republican City
Committee from the Twenty-second Ward.
