Decrepit, old and poverty-stricken,
Mrs. E. Stelnlger, nineteen years be
yond the allotted span of life, and her
sister, Miss Mary Conard, but four
years her Junior, left the police station
yesterday afternoon, where they had
been cared for since Sunday night.
They were happy as they sat, hand
In hand, In the corridor of the city
Jail, waiting for their nephew, Charles
Lorch, to call for them and take them
back to their home at 2844 West First
street, where they might again "keep
house" for one another. A smile played
across their wrinkled faces as they
sat, each tightly grasping In her hand
a, bright silver halt dollar, which a
kind-hearted newspaper man had given
them, and their minds wandered back
to the fatherland and Its green vine
yards, left behind forever, fifty years
At last, the nephew arrived and ev
ery one In the station, from the big
policeman, who stands on the crossing,
to the matron, bustled about to see
that everything was In readiness and
comfortable for the two old women be
fore their departure.
Start for Home
The youngest sister, whose eyes have
long been sightless, sat silently wait-
Ing until a whispered sentence from tho
nephew told her that everything was
in readiness for the homeward Journey.
As the two women left the station they
leaned confidingly on the arm of their
nephew for support.
"They treat me nicely hero," said
Mrs. Stelniger, "but we both want to
go . back home, where we can be alone
and together. My eyesight is still good,
while she still has her hearing, so, be
tween us, we manage to get along very
well. We have our own little cot
tage, and when my daughter recovers
it will all be well again," she said hope
The two old women and a daughter
of Mrs. Stelrilger were sent to the po

was examined at the receiving hospital.

WHERE TO PUT NEW PLANT IS
THE CONTRACT IS APPROVED
Councilmen Suggest New Garbage De.
structor Be Connected With the
Polytechnic High School.
A Steam Producer : :
The council, in special session yester
day afternoon, approved the bond and
contract of the Decarle Manufacturing
company for the construction of a De
carle Incinerator capable of destroying
200 tons of garbage per day without
nuisance of any kind. Tho contractors
are bound to construct a plant which
will consume the refuse without allow
ing any fumes or smoke to emit from
the stack or furnace and in a building
which will be an ornament rather than
a detriment to the city.
By the terms of the contract the city
is to furnish a sight for the plant and
has until June 15 to make Its selection.
The Decarle company Is then to build
the plant within 120 working days, bar-
Ing strikes, fire, or other causes be
yond their control.
The council believes It has contracted
for the best plant which can be built,
and now that this most Important
question is settled the location to be
chosen Is the absorbing topic before
the city's legislative body.
Location of Plant
When discussing the question Infor
mally yesterday afternoon several
councilmen suggested that the plant
be put next to the new polytechnic
high school, beside the power plant of
The Decarle plant Is a steam pro
ducer and the steam can be used to
operate the machinery in the new
training school. The plant would also
hent the big buildings of the new in
stitution. Such use of the plant would,
of course, mean a tremendous saving
to the city In fuel and labor, Mid thus
the garbage could be turned to good
account and the plant run at a profit
Instead of an expense.
Aside from this, it was suggested that
such a locution of the plant would give
the students of the school an oppor
tunity to study the great problem of
sanitation In connection with their
other work along scientific and engi
neering lines. •

NEW CITY HALL
FOR LOS ANGELES
RUMOR THAT BUILDING SITE
WILL BE DONATED -
OFFICES ARE CONGESTED
Publio Spirited Citizens May Present
City With Ground Upon Which
to Build Fine Municipal
Is Los Angeles to have a new city
hull? This Is the question councilman,
city officials and many citizens would
like answered. ,
There is a persistent rumor In the
air which was one of tho topics nf
conversation In the municipal offices
yesterday to the effect that some of
the public spirited citizens of Los An
geles Intend to make the city a present
of a suitable site for a city hall in
the vicinity of the new poatofflce and
the court house, provided the city
would agree to build thereon a hall of
which the citizens might all be proud.
The present city hall is so small that
It is totally Inadequate to the demands
made upon It for space by tho various
city departments. Many of these de
partments are forced to find quarters
outside the hall and the city is annual
ly paying out enough money In rent,
It Is claimed, to more than meet the
Interest on a sufficient bond issue to
build and equip a municipal building
of adequate size and modern equip
Just who these citizens behind this
proposition are It Is impossible at ths
present time to say, but that such a
movement is on foot cannot be doubt
ed, for a number of the councilmen
have been aproached as to their views
ori the subject. They decline to dis
cuss the question in detail at the pres
ent time, but all are considering it.
More Room Needed
More room must be provided for In
some way. The city's phenomenal
growth has made a back number of the
present city hall, and something must
be done in the near future, officials de
clare. The water department was long
ago crowded out and now has leased
an entire building on South Hill street.
The board of education occupies a
number of offices In the chamber of
commerce block. The civil service
commissioners arc located in the Wil
cox building, and various other de
partments have offices scattered
through the city. '
The offices. In the city hall are so con
gested that the business of the city Is
retarded. The park department has to
use one corner of tho mayor's office.
The city engineer's department needs
twice the space allotted to it in order
to keep up with the work. The other
departments are. almost as congested.
The citizens of the city will await with
Interest the materializing of the rumor
which is now current.
SPRING COLONIST RATES
Tourist Traffic Heavier This Year
Than Formerly Say Rail,
Spring colonist rates, which have been
In effect over the Santa Fe. and South
ern Pacific for the past month and a
half, went out of service last Monday
and tho last to avail themselves of the
cheap passage to California from th?
oast are now arriving In I^os Angeles.
Last Monday the Santa Fe had two
trains, made up for the most part of
tourist sleepers, arrive at the La Grande
station, one. of which carried fourteen
cars and the other fifteen cars. The
remarkable feature is that the first
train arrived ,011 time, and the second
came In only twenty minutes late, with
the engineer in a rage because, at Bar
rtow, he wns given assistance by an
"We should have nrrlved In Los An
geles on time," said the Irate engine
man. "if some doughheaded official had
not given orders to put another englny
on the train. At Barstow we were only
forty minutes late and I could have
made that up by the time we reached
' "They gave us a helper there, but the
engine had such small wheels that It
could not make the time of the regular
locomotive and we reached the La
Urandn station late."
While the tourist travel has been
fully ns heavy as that of last year, and
possibly heavier, as It lasted fifteen
days longer. It has bppn of steady dura
tion. Last season there was a rush of
easterners to tho west as soon as the
rates were put into effect. Then there
followed a lull, and again Just before
the rates were withdrawn occurred an
other stampede, which taxed the capa
bilities of the passenger equipment of
the two roads.

FACTS not THEORIES
TRUTH not FICTION.
The truth is what the American public wants In these days. The
way of truth is also the way of health now that trying weather fa here.
We hear a tale of hard colds, bad coughs, "threatened with. pneumonia"
and almost bronchitis. Maybe it is talk of "spring" fever, backache,
cold feet and perhaps the early symptoms of grip. Take the ounce of
prevention that is worth the pound of cure that will carry you through
the bad spring weather. "A safe and sane" tonic to use at this
time is Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery. Why? because it

This valuable tonic and blood purifier has been sold in ever increas-
ing quantities for nearly forty years-^its success seemed phenominal to
those not familiar with its ingredients but the secret is out now and
you know why it is that Dr. Pierce found it so uniformly successful in
treating chronic cases — those who were run-down whose blood was
bad owing to imperfect digestion — perhaps the skin showing scrof-
uloua tendency due to impure blood — and the heart and arteries left in
a weakened condition. Dr. R. V. Pierce during an active practice
found time to experiment and study the combining of the following
native medicinal plants into an alterative — in which just the right pro-
portions were scientifically combined to make the most effective remedy
without the use of a particle of alcohol as follows :
t. BLOODROOT (Sanguinaria Canadensis). JP>
t. STONE ROOT (Collinsonia Canadensis).
j. GOLDEN SEAL (/fydrasiis Canadensis).
I QUEEN'S ROOT (Stillingia Sylvatica).
5. MANDRAKE (Podophy Hum. Peltatum).
5. CHERRYBARK (Prunus Virginiana).
One of the most scientific authorities in his Medical Dispensatory
says of Bloodroot : "It stimulates the digestive organs, increases action
of heart and arteries — valuable as a stimulant and tonic as well as a
remedy for a cough." Of the following plants he farther says:
"Stone root is an alterative, tonic and stimulant. Improves appetite,
promotes flow of gastric juice and a good remedy in indigestion, dys-
pepsia, chronic gastritis and increases the secretion from the kidneys
and skin. Mandrake is a gentle stimulant tonic, improves the appetite
and is a certain but sure cathartic which leaves the bowels in an im-
proved condition." While of Queen's root he says : "an alterative un-
surpassed by few if any other of the known alteratives, most successful
in skin and scrofulous affections, aids in blood-making and nutrition."
