How The Body Kills Germs.
Germ that get into the body re killed in two vrayi by the white corptwejet
of the blood, and by a frMi? sutstanct that is in the blood. Juit whet Hill
ubtncc is, we do not know. The blood ol a healthy person always hot lomo
'nermkllling substance in it to ward off the attack of dWesce. The fountain bead
oi life is tlio stomach. A man who has a weak sod impaired stomach and who
docs not properly dieit his food will toon find that hit blood hat become weak
and impoverished, end that hit whole body it improperly and iniufficlently nour
iihed. To put the body in healthy condition, to feed the tystem on rich, red blood
and throw out the poiiont from the body, nothing in the ptt forty yeart hat

scab which would dry and drop off In about a month, then
another would Immediately form. It continued tult way

And to think that "Al" Drcuhor

would bo accuHad of noodiug a pair

In Omaha's most traveled street Just
tho other day. Happy "Al" of
Dresher Ilron,, whllo sauutorlng
along Fnrnam street nonr hU plant
wus startled to hour tho aforesaid
yell directly behind his shoulders.
Tho same "I want my pants!! I want
Turning to' sco tho cause of the
commotion "Al" beheld a prominent
Omaha citizen, out or breath, ex
hausted, ttnnurvotl, but still yelling,
"I want my pnntB!"
"Now clam yourself, Old Pal,"
said Dresher, "clam yourself! What's
tho matter? I haven t got your pants.
I've a dozen puln) ut thu tailor shop
and six inoro at the cloanlug plant
'Besides, you'vo got a pair on, so
wliate tho riot nbout?"
"Well, I-Meft a pair of pants at
your cleaning establishment a few
minutes ago and I-I want 'om quick!"
"What's tho matter," said Al,
don't yoif thliiH wn cun clean 'em
properly? Wo clean about three
hundred pairs u day!"
"No-n-o It Isn't that" exclaimed
tho worrlud one, "but you boo 1
loft 'em and "
"Well, If you must havo 'em, come
on," said "Al," and tho routo to the
Dlant was soon covered. As luck
would havo It tho trousors In Ques
tion had not yet gono through the
Dreshor cleaning equipment and
were promptly passed out to tlio
Hastily examining tho pockets nnd
turning thn trouser legs Inside out
with feverish haste, tho worried on
exclaimed: "I had-d a H-u-ndrod
dollars In thoso pa-nts and tho
money Is g-o-ne!"
"Well, It serves you right for own
ing so much monoy," said Happy A),
"but let's go to tho oflco and see
what wu can do nboitt It!"
At tho office u young lady passed
out a oue hundred dollar bill In u
moment, saylnir: "What's h
name of tho gentleman please?" The
na,m being given tho young lutly
roplicd, "Corroct." Tho mprioy
had boon found In tho trousors tno

satisfied patron who swears by tho
honesty of Dresners and the entire
Droahor clnn and thiTentlro force nt

2213 Fnrnam street. I
This incident, perfectly true,
brings up recollections of manyl
amusing things found In clothes
brought into tho Dresher Uros. es
tablishment for cleaning. A ladles'
dress was recently found to contain
a eompleto set of false teeth. A
half hour later an unfortunate wo
man with cheeks sudly depressed,
was again made happy with her set
of molars. It is no uncommon
thing to find money, Jewelry, mar
rlago certificates, pillB, dress goods
samples, flasks of whlskoy, etc., la
clothes sent In for cleaning. One
man recently sent In a suit ot clothes
containing a sandwich, the mam In
gredient of which was the noisy
cheose entitled "Llmburtter. '
But tho point ot this story Is this:
leavo anything you wnnt In tho
clothes sent hero and you will CJET
It again. No matter how valuable
tho ploce of Jowolry, or how large
the sum of monoy found, it Is Im
mediately deposited In tho Dresher
office safo with the owner's name
attached. Just prove your name and
you get your belongings.
This brings up tho question ot
RELIABILITY. Kor Instance you
leavo a bundle ot clothes to bo
cleaned by some small uninsured
side stroet cloauor; and say thin
small cleaning establishment should
be burned up. Would you be arap.y
lelmbursed for your clothes? Would
you bo paid for the loss?
Maybe and maybe not mo3t
likely NOT for one fcannot pay It
one lias not tho monoy. to pay with.
Leavo your finest wearables at
Dresher Bros. Cleaning- establ.Bi
ment knowing that you are dealing
with a firm whoso equipment alone
Is worth over 150,000. That makea
the firm responsible, does If not?
