Fr. Shoop's
Rheumatic Cure
Costs Nothins if It Fails
Any honeat person who suffers from
Rheumatism Is wlotrr.- to this offer. For
year I searched everywhere to find a spe
cific for Rheumatism. For nearly twenty
years I worked to this nd. At last, in
Germany, my search was rewarded. I
found a costly chemical that did not dis
appoint me a other Rheumatic prescrip
tions had disappointed physicians every
where. .
I do not mean that Dr. Shoop's Rheumatic
Cur can turn bony Joints into flesh again.
That is impossible. But it will drive from
the blood the poison that causes pain and
swelling, and then that is the end of Rheu
matism. I know this so well that I will
furnlsl for a full month my Rheumatic
Cure on trial I cannot cure all cases
within a month. It would be unreasonable
to except that. But most cases will yield
within thirty days. This trial treatment
will convince you that Dr. Shoop's Rheu
matic Cure is a power against Rheumatism
a potent force against disease that is ir
resistible. My offer Is made to convince you of my
faith. My faith is but the outcome of ex
perienceof actual knowledge. I know
what it can do. And I know this so well
that I will furnish my remedy on trial.
Slmpiy write me a postal for my book on
Rheumatism. I will then arrange with a
druggist in your vicinity so that you can
secure six bottles of Dr. Shoop's Rheumatic
Curs to mako the test. You may take it a
full month on trial. If it succeeds the cost
to you s 15.90. If it fails the loss Is mine
and mine alone. It will be left entirely to
you. I mean that exactly. I don't expect
a penny from you.
Write me and I will send you the book.
Try my remedy for a month If it falls
the loss is mine.
Address Dr. Shoop, Box 9T90. Racine,
Mild cases not chronic are often cured
bv on or two bottles. At all druggists.

Asphalt People Said to Be Trying

COLUMBUS. Ind.. Ja i. li.-"If you will
help me defeat the proposition to pave
Washington and Fifth streets with trick,
you can have the space in front of your
residence paved with asphalt and it will i
not cost you a cent."
That was the proposition that a repre
senative of an asphalt paving company is
said to have made to certain residents of
both streets.
There is considerable contention as to
whether Washington street and Fifth
street will be paved with brick or asphalt.
First, the City Council decided to pave with
asphalt, but the property owners came In
with remonstrances and petitions, saying
they would rather have brick. The Coun
cil then revised its decision and advertised
for bids for the brick pavement of these
two streets. At the last regular Council
meeting the bids were opened and a large
lot of trouble was opened at the same
A resident of Fifth street, who favored
asphalt, sent in a communication sta'aig
that he would bring injunction proceedings
against any one who attempted to lay
brick on the street as he believed that a
majority of the property owners had signed
a remonstrance against brick and in favor
of asphalt. A majority of the property
owners along Washington street presented
a petition asking that the plans b- ( hanged
so that the pavement would be of asphalt
instead of briek.
It is stated that the representative of the
asphalt company went to a resident on
Fifth street and told him that if he would
circulate a petition against brick, that the
space in front of his residence would be
paved without cost to himself. The resi
dent refused to do this and the matter was
taken up along different lines.

thirty-one gas wells to the Robyne Oil Co.,
and since which time the plant has been
buying gas by meter at 8 cents a thousand.
To cut down some of this expense both oil
