A. L. Urlck, president of the Iowa

Senator Cummins and Congressman
Hull of Iowa with committees from

to Improve the conditions under which
the men aro working. Congressmen
McKinley of Illinois and Dawson of
Iowa have helped the men in the past,
it is stated, and have expressed a will
ingness to do all in their power in the
future, but the men are especially de
sirous of meeting Senator Cummins
and Congressman Hull. The letter ad
dressed to President Urick in part is
"Our grievances are many, but the
foremost is the cutting of wages, which
they call an 'adjustment of salaries,

WHY SALVES FAIL
TO CURE ECZEMA '
They Clog the Pores Only n Liquid
Can licarh the Inner Skin.
Since the old fashioned theory of.
curing eczema, through the blood has
been given up by scientists, many
different salves have been tried for
skin diseases. But it has been found
that these salves only clog the pores
and can not penetrate to the inner
skin below the epidermis where the
eczema germs are lodged.
This the quality of penetrating
probably explains the tremendous
success of the only standard liquid
eczema cure, oil of wintergreen as
compounded in D. D. D. Prescription.
After 10 years of cure after cure, the
world's leading skin specialists have
accepted this as the true eczema
We ourselves do not hesitate to
recommend D. D. D. Prescription at
$1.00 a bottle, but for the benefit of
those who have never tried the pre
scription, we arranged with the D
D. .D. laboratories of Chicago for
special large trial bottle at 25 cents
on a special offer now. This first
bottle ought to convince every suf
ferer, and, at any rate, it will surely
take away the itch at once. The Har

Carter, who appears in her new play,
a?t Heme,'- at the Grand, in Dav

no thoughts of a stage career. She

peared at the Herald Square theater,
New York, as Maryland Calvert, in
"The Heart of Maryland' on Oct. 22,
1S93. It was so great a success th:it
she continued in this play for threa
years in this country and she took t
to Iondon and made her first appear
ance on the English stage at the Adel
l,hi theater on April 19, 1S9S. In De
cember, 1S98, she appeared at Wash
ington as the heroine of "Zaza," which
afterwards had a long run in Nev
York, and in which she appeared at
the Garrick theater in London, o
April 1C, 190. In the following yei)
she appeared In Washington for the
first time as Mme. Du Barry in B-?-lar.so'a

llow You Need Not
Suffer from Catarrh
(From Vienna Abendpost. )
At the recent convention held by
the physicians and surgeons of Vi-f-nna,
many present being men well
known in the profession, cne topic
of interest that brought about much
liscussion was that of catarrh, Its
rapid increase and results.
Professor Herman Von Schelt, a
.veil known general practitioner, sur
prised those present with his exper
ience with the disease, for a disease
it is. He stated that in the past two
years he has been able, through the
use of a simple drug called vintox, to
treat successfully almost every case
thHt came under his care.
It seems that this vintox, accord
ing to Professor Von Schelt, has al
ready found its way to America and
can be bought in any drug store.
"Every sufferer of catarrh," says
the doctor, "can readily obtain relief
from two ounces of vfntox dissolved
in a pint of water. Just gargle a
little four or five times a day and
pour some in the palm of the hand
and snuff it up the nose."
