She had -worked, loved and was
happy In doing for her children, and
when she started to break down they
were frantic, were willing to do al
most anything to make her last years
happy and free from worry and Ill
ness. Nothing they did seemed to
help; doctors, medicines or rest gave
no results.
Finally, when all were about
desperate with worry a neighbor in
duced them to try Phosphated Iron
It had worked such wonders with her
old folks. Ready to grasp at any help'
they got a supply and the way their
mother improved from the start was
almost too good to believe. It sure
was a happy and reunited family and
you can bet they are all boosting
Phosphated Iron to the limit.
Doctors the world over will tell
you what Phospates and Iron will
build up and store strength and
energy against old age and nervous
break downs. One of our leading
physicians says, "The- results I have
! obtained with Phosphated Iron have
been great in cases of old people,
where it was necessary to build up
strength, revive bodily functions,
give them life, renewed youth and
health."
There must be something to it.
Doctors and druggists all tell the
same, story of success.
Special Notice To insure physi
cians and their patients getting the
genuine Phosphated Iron It is put
up In capsules only. Do not allow
dealers to give you pills or tablets,

MLKAX INTRODUCES
BELLS II? SENATE
Senator McLean Introduced peti
tions from members of the Sons and
Daughters of Liberty of New Haven,
and from citizens of Bridgeport, ask
ing for legislation providing for draft
of certain aliens nito the military ser
vice, and from members of the Junior
Order United American Mechanics of
ethel, Bridgeport, Danbury, Hartford,
Middletown, New Britain, New Haven
and Stamford favoring immigration
restriction.
The tUhlted Illuminating company
has announced an increase of one
half cent, from seven to 7 1-2 cents a
kilowatt hour, in its rates. Accom
panying the announcement was the
following statement issued from the
company's office: ,
In the early part of the year 1917,
the company was securing ample sup
P'y of high grade soft coal at from
W.85 to $4 per ton, but In the spring
costs of fuel, supplies and labor be
gan to mount up and continued so
doing, anidi still bear evidence of go
ing higher. Hoping this condition
was a temporary one, and that costs
might be reduced, no change was
made In rates, but the company main
tained its service at a cost in many
cases higher than it was getting for
it Coal is now difficult to get at any
price, is very poor in quality as a
whole, vosts from $3 to J350 more per
ton than formerly, and will, unless
some changes take place, cost still
more due to advances In water
freights, tax on freights, etc. All
supplies have advanced more than 50
per cent, and labor is costing far
more than it did. The volume of cur
rent sold has grown, tmt the large
increases In costs of uel, supplies
and labor have resulted in a greatly
increased cost of generating current,
and the company is forced, contrary
to Its usual policy, to increase the
rates fnr current as shown in the
schedules. It is hoped that conditions
may change at an early rate and fuel
and supplies cost less, and that tha
advance in rates may be a temporary
expedient due to war condtlons. 11
should ibe noted that the advance in,
rates kloes not cover the entire in-
druggists every- creased cost of fuel supplies and la
j bor, but the company hopes that the
mhhhhmhi ! volume of current to be sold will in
crease to such an extent that the re
suits will furnish money enough to
pay the additional costs of operation.
