IF KIDNEYS ARE
TROUBLING YOU
Uric Acid in meat excites Kidneys
and Irritates the
Bladder.
Noted Authority says we must
flush Kidneys with Salts
if Back hurts.
We are a nation of meat eaters and
our blood Is filled with uric acid, says a
well-known authority, who warns us to
be constantly on guard against kidney
uouble.
The kidneys do their utmost to free
the blood of this irritating acid, but
become weak from the overwork; they
set sluggish; the climinative tissues
clog and thus the waste is retained in
the blood to poison the entire system.
When your kidneys ache and feel
like lumps of lead, and you have
stinging pains in the back or the urine
is cloudy, full of sediment, or the
bladder is irritable, obliging you to
•seek relief during the night; when you
liave severe headaches, nervous and
dizzy spells, sleeplessness, acid stom
ach or rheumatism in bad weather,
set from your pharmacist about four
ounces of Jad Salts; take a tablespoon
ful in a glass of water before break
fast each morning and In a few days
your kidneys will act tine. This
lau.ous salts Is made from the acid
of grapes and lemon juice, combinsd
with lltliia, and has been used for
generations to Hush and stlmulato
clogged kidneys, to neutralize the
nclds in urine so it Is no longer a
source of irritation, thus ending urin
ary and bladder disorders.
Jad Salts is Inexpensive and can
not injure; makes a delightful effer
vescent litlila-wntcr drink and nohodv
can make a mistnko by taking a little
occasionally to keep the kidneys clean
and active.—Advertisement.

CIRCUS APPLIES
FOR INSURANCE
Unique Application Filed at
Office of State Insurance
Fund Board
men's Insu ranee
rti&lTOfv T Fund for insuring
the employer's
liability of a circus
l\ JfIHSSpCr is about to be sent
\\ CBgwwbfy out. Tlie Fund lias
Spqlt'Ll-vfll had applications
f or employers in
BP"*TpCM many lines but the
■■■■SHi circus was the first
of the kind to appear. Inquiry was
made for rates on Insuring 200 people,
who show in several Pennsylvania
cities and towns yearly.
The State fund will give complete
protection to the owners of the amuse
ment caravan while touring across
Pennsylvania. Every employe will be
protected, from the canvasman to the
trapeze performers. If the lion tamer
is mauled by her pets, the snake
charmer infected with the venom of
(he reptiles, or the bare-back riders
i injured by falls into the tanbark ring,
proportionate parts of their salaries,
in accordance with the provisions of
the compensation act, will be paid
them weekly. Similarly, even the Ad
vance man, the billposters, ticket sell
ers and ushers will be accorded the
same protection as is given the trainer
of the herd of elephants.
The circus has several hundred em
ployes. The rate the circus owners
must pay for the complete compen
sation protection afforded by the State
fund is $5.41 for each SIOO of pay
roll. The rate of any other insurance
carrier would be $6.01 or each SIOO
of payroll, because the State fund
rates are 10 per cent, lower than the
rates of other insurance carriers.
The employes of the show will vir
tually be protected every hour of the
day from the time they enter the State
until they leave, as they eat and sleep
under the supervision of the employ
ers, and any injury received during
any time of the day would practically
be incurred in the course of employ
ment.
Officials of the fund to-day an
nounced that 9.800 policies had been
written and that among changes;
which had been authorized was one
to reduce the rate for insurance of
trolleymen on interurban runs to the
same liguro as for crews on city runs.

Official recognition of the play- (

steadily growing in Steelton, was given
by the borough council last evening
when it. created a fund for employ
ment of a competent playgrounds su
pervisor and authorized the establish
ment of five new recreation places in
t lie borough;
Council's action followed an address j
by C. S. Davis, chairman of a joint'
committee from the Municipal League
and Civic Club, which came before j
council 1o ask that the borough awake
to the necessity of making provision j
for ils youth. The committee included |
Mr. Davis, Mrs. J. jr. Heagy, president, ;
and Mrs. Kdward Hill, a member of
the playgrounds committee, of the |
Steelton Civic Club.
Mr. Davis was given the floor on I
motion of Mr. Henderson and the;
initial appropriation of S7OO for coun
cil's share of the first summer's work
was made on motion of Mr. Nelly, |
seconded by Mr. Henderson.
Praises Civic Club
In explaining the playgrounds move
ment to council Mr. Davis referred to j
the admirable work of the Civic Club
in starting the borough's flrst play
grounds. lie told why the task of
directing the recreation of the bor
ough's children was a fask too large j
for any single civic organization, no j
matter how hard it worked.
"It is the duty of you in power," he '
declared, "lo create such conditions
that the cosmopolitan youth of our
borough will grow up in an environ- ,
menf tending to make them good !
American citizens."
He described the thorough investi- j
gat ion of the playgrounds movement
i onducted by the Municipal League
and paid a glowing tribute to the j
"wonderful system of parks and play- !
grounds in Harrisburg" and inciden- !
tally paid some compliments to V. i
Grant Forrer. assistant superintendent i
of parks at Harrisburg. under whose
direction, he said, a greater part of
the system was worked out.
Want Vive Playgrounds
Mr. Davis explained that it was the I
desire of the civic organizations to
Railroad Fails to Meet
Borough's Demands in
Canal Ordinance Matter
Because the Pennsylvania Railroad
did not meet the borough's demands 1
for ample compensation for the i
valuable permossion to construct,
three additional grade crossings In the j
West Side, the ordinance granting the
company to go ahead with its pro-;
posed freight spur along the old
Pennsylvania canal, was referred back j
to the Highway committee to confer:
with the Railroad and Steel Com
pany, with a view to bringing about!
an agreement.
The ordinance is before council on ,
third and final reading. It was dls-l
cussed informally by the councilmen |
before the meeting was called to :
order. As the ordinance now stands j
the railroad offers nothing in return j
for the right to construct three grade!
crossings. Following several confer
ences with the highway committee, j
railroad officials offered to build about
1.000 feet of sewer in the bed of the:
old Pennsylvania canal. This pro
posed sewer would not eliminate the ■
canal nuisance but would merely!
carry the water through the streets'
which it is proposed to till across the
canal under the grade crossings.
Railroad's Best Offer
j On the suggestion of Mr. Hender-1
son the ordinance was held up until
his committee can ask the railroad
if it will build an intercepting sewer
in Conestoga street and a latteral
sewer parallel to the canal in Fred- i
erick street to take care of the drain- |
ago of the West Side and that to be |
destroyed by the proposed tracks.
It was intimated by President
; Tteynders that the railroad could offer
I no more than it did and it was sug
| Kcstel that if the parallel sewer is
| built along the canal that the borough i
should pay of the cost and the|
remainder be paid jointly by the Steel i
Company and by the railroad.
The ordinance was not amended,
as it had been rather strongly inti
mated in municipal circles it would,
and It still stands in its original form.
That Hospital I.oaxi
After a long discussion council de
cided to permit the voters of the
borough to decide at the May pri
maries whether or not the $12,000
raised by a bond Issue for erection of
a municipal hospital be used to pur
chase motor fire apparatus. This
money is now in bank at three per
cent, and the borough is paying four
and-a-half.
President Reynders, in discussing
I the municipal hospital project, d'e-
I clared that it was his belief that the
| State should assist municipalities in
lighting epidemics and said that he
intended to take up with the next
' legislature plans for bringing about
such action.
It was decided to have drawn an
ordinance calling for a vote in May
on a loan of $50,000 for street pav
ing and $20,000 for motor Are appara
tus and garbage trucks.
O. E. B. -Malehorn, the new chief of
the tire department, made his first, re
port in person and asked council to
purchase 1,200 feet of new hose, some
new coats, new smoke protectors and
to erect hose driers in three hose
houses. Council authorized the pur
chase of 600 feet of hose, erection of
the hose driers and purchase of the
smoke protectors.
Because council believed the pro
visions of the proposed new license
ordinance needs revision, action on
the measure was deferred.
A motion of Councilman Henderson
that two additional policemen be
hired for special duty in daytime was
referred to the Police Committee. In
his annual report last month Burgess
Fred Wigdcld asked for three officers.
A deed from Wright & Brlghthill
giviiiß the borough a tract of ground
for the entrance to laither R. Kelker
park was accepted and ordered re
corded and (he agreement for the
grading of Park street was filed. |
| place a playground in the borough's
lower end foreign section, another in
the colored district, one in the East
End, one in the West Side and another
In the central part of the borough.
He estimated that $l,lOO would pay
the salary of a playgrounds expert
and his assistants for the first season
and would pay for all the equipment
j necessary at the beginning.
A rather length discussion followed
; Mr. Davis' recommendations, in which
| the councilmen asked many questions,
j all directed with a view to obtaining
, more Information on the movement.
| In discussing the request President. J.
V. W. Ueynders heartily endorsed the
I plan, saying:
"We have peculiar conditions here,
j The foreigners who come here have
! behind them centuries of tradition
j which holds them within narrow con
fines. When they arrive here they are
I surprised with our spirit of freedom,
! and, unless directed along proper lines,
go beyond bounds.
Gi-cat Value of Recreation
"This playgrounds movement is a
big one and I believe we will get more
value for our money expended in this
movement than in many other places.
The whole spirit, however, depends
upon getting the right man to establish
the playgrounds and get them under
i way. We should get a man who knows
j how to handle and direct the work.
' 1 think we may well let the Municipal
(League and Civic Club recommend to
ns a man whom they think fitted to
handle the work for council's ap
i proval."
In appropriating .S7OO of the $l,lOO
asked for council was assured that the
j league and Civic Club would help In
crease this amount and It was inti
mated by Mr. Ueynders that still other
j interests might contribute.
While details of the playgrounds
| plan are not as yet worked out., it Is
likely that the Municipal League and
i Civic Club will immediately get. in
touch with competent men and recoiu
| mend one to council to undertake the
I establishment of the proposed five
| recreation places. Just how the nd
-1 ministrative details will be worked out
will be decided later.

REYNDERS RESIGNS AS
DIRECTOR OF STEEL CO.
(.Continued From First Page]
impression upon the men of the Steel
ton plant all ring his recent visit
who feel that he is a - broad
gauged executive WHO will go out ot
his way to do justice to employes who
have been instrumental in building
up the big plant and who are active
In its operations at present. In this
he would be merely tollowing out the
established custom of Charles M.
Schwab at Bethlehem, who brought
the Bethlehem plant up to its pres
ent high state of efficiency byuslngand
developing the men whom he found
iwith the business when he took over
the properties.
Becomes Operating Plant
The reason for Mr. Ueynders' resig
nation lies in the fact that it Is the
plan of the Schwab Interests to absorb
completely the Pennsylvania Steel
company. The Pennsylvania Steel
company will be blotted out entire
ly and the Steelton plant will become
one of the units of the Bethlehem
company. Mr. Ueynders as vice-pres
fident of the Pennsylvania company
has been in executive charge ot the
Steelton end of the big business and
I this office would naturally pass out
I with the absorption of the Pennsyl
vania company. Thus Steelton's oper
ations will depend upon executive or
ders for Bethlcliem and the new head
lat Steelton will be a general manager
but not in executive control. Mr.
j Ueynders' resignation is simply a step
;in advance ol the dissolution of the
Pennsylvania Steel company.
Mr. lteynders said to-day that he
will continue an active personal in
terest in the properties and that he
believes Steelton Is just on the step
ping stone to a great future. He will
continue, he said, to take an active in
terest In civic affairs, with which he
has been prominently identilied for
many years.
Circat Bridge Expert
Mr. Ueynders lias been with the
Pennsylvania Steel company since
1892 and first attracted attention in
steel circles as an expert in bridge
construction and erection. Ho is a
{graduate of Uenssalear l'olytechnlque
institute at Troy, N. Y., and upon
graduation immediately entered the
service of the Pennsylvania Steel
company as engineer in charge of the
bridge and construction department.
In 1896 ho was made superintendent
of the bridge and construction de
partment. In this position he con
tinued until 190f when he was placed
in complete charge of the works at
Steelton and elected vice-president
and director of the company, which
positions he has since held.
During the period of his superin
tendenc.v of the bridge and construc
tion department and since his eleva
tion to the vice-presidency, Mr. Ueyn
ders has made a wonderiul record as
a bridge engineer. Some of the big
gest works of that kind in the whole
World were turned out of the Steelton
plant und erected by Steelton engi
neers, among them the Blackwell's
Island and Williamsburg bridges,
New York: the gigantic Gokteik via
duct in Burmah, the Niagara arch
and the Memphis bridge, now in
course of construction.
Saved Steelton From Scrap Ilcap
It is generally known among men
;who have been in loucli with the sit
uation that It was largely due lo the
|efforts ol' Mr. Ueynders that Steelton
is the Steelton of to-day. When the
Pennsylvania and other railroad com
panies came Into a controlling interest
of the Pennsylvania Steel company
they found an antiquated and unpro
fitable series or plants at Steelton and
for a time there was much talk of
abolishing the Steelton industry en
tirely and concentrating elsewhere.
At this juncture Mr. Ueynders threw
his influence into the balance and
started the Steelton plants on their
career of progress that made them an
attractive proposition when Schwab
began to look around for an oppor
tunity to extend the capacity of his
i company.
When Mr. Ueynders took hold at
! Steelton the properties were run down.
To-day they are at the height of their
] profits. In 1902 and 1903 Mr. Reyn
ders rebuilt the bridge and construc
jtion shops and did the job so well that
ithey are still modern und regarded as
'models of their kind. When built
| they were away ahead of their period.
Since 1906 he h&S remodeled the
West End plant and reconstructed the
! open-hearth department, which is
now regarded as one of the very best
iin the country. It lias been repeatedly
i the subject of sketches and pictures
|in the technical magazines. Among
the more recent Improvements made
| at Steelton through the instrumental
ity of Mr. Reynders are the new roll
j ing mills built last year and the year
previous, the new rail and structural
| mills, the rebuilt splice bar mills and
finishing shop, and the new 14 and
j 16-inch mills, which were given a
| successful try-out yesterday, one
new blast furnace was built under his
j direction, steel hydraulic presses were
| installed for forglngs and gas blowing
engines were provided for the blast
furnaces. In addition a modern and
well equipped hospital has been erect
ed in connection with the works and
a tine new office building built. Much
of the financing of the Pennsylvania
Steel company enterprises has been
conducted by Mr. Ueynders.
Mr. Ueynders has been a member
of t.he borough council of Steelton
continuously since 1906, and its pres
ident since 1907. In that time, and
with his assistance, Steelton has be
come one of the best paved boroughs
in the State and a model filter plant
| has been erected. The borough has

Healthy Old Age
Brings
Simple Remedy Promotes Health
By Overcoming Tendency
to Constipation.
Advancing years impair the action
of the vital organs. Old age should
be the period of greatest happiness,
but good health is necessary. Consti
pation should not be tolerated—it is
often the direct cause of ill health.
Headache, belching, biliousness,
bloat, drowsiness after eating and
other symptoms of constipation can
be readily relieved by the use of a
simple laxative compound sold in drug
stores under the name of Dr. Cald
vfell's Syrup Pepsin. Mr. J. H. Bristol,
1412 Geddes Ave.. Ann Arbor, Mich.,
who is 83 years old. says "Dr. Cald
well's Syrup Pepsin is the best remedy
I ever used for constipation and 1 al
ways have a bottle of it in the house
to use when I feel the need of it; it
never disappoints."
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a
mild laxative preparation, positive In
its effect, acting easily and naturally
without griping or other pain or dis
comfort. For over a quarter of a
century It has been the standard
household remedy in thousands of
homes. Druggists everywhere sell It
taken up civic betterment work, has?
established a park system and is in !
a highly prosperous condition.

year were $.197,391.99, a decrease of
$59,231.74. And according to the re

! were seriously affected during the year
by unregulated jitney competition.
This condition, together with unfavor
able weather during the park season,
I and possibly, to some extent, the In
j creased use of automobiles, caused
ihe falling off in revenue. It has been
| estimated that l»,v far Hie larger part
of tills decrease, possibly uo per cent,
of it, could be attributed to the un
regulated jitneys. The original license
i fee of $5.00 required of these jitneys
\ has been increased.
Fewer Jitneys Now
! In addition, it is required that a
j $2,000 bond be tiled. Since this ordi-
I nance became effective, the number
j of jitneys operating has been mate
i rially reduced. This loss in revenue
| necessitated the reduction of the divi-
I dend payable October 1, to the pre
ferred stockholders, to one per cent.
I Your directors greatly regretted the
] necessity for reducing the dividend
I rate, but in view of the unfortunate
condition of business that prevailed
■ for the six months preceding, they
I felt that no other course was open to
them.
"As will be noted from the preced
ing statement, your company carried
during the year, 23,435,553 pas
| sengers. This business was handled
i without a fatal accident to a pas-
I senger or employe,
i "In spite of the heavy decrease in
1 operating expenses, made necessary
by the decreased earnings, the service
to the public was not curtailed, nor
| were the wages of your employes rc
i duced.

of the company's rolling stock, shops,
i power plant and miscellaneous equip
ment. During the year the company

A GOOD FRIEND
A good friend stands by you when
in need. Harrisburg people tell how
Doan's Kidney Pills have stood the
teßt. Mrs. Wooley endorsed Doan's
over a year ago and again confirms the
story. Could you usk for more con
vincing testimony?
Mrs. Amelia M. Wooley, 1328 North
Fourth street, Harrisburg, says:
"When T stood very much, my back
I got weak and painful. When I sat
I down, I could hardly straighten up. I
[could hardly turn over in bed ami
i when I laid on my back, the pain was
very severe. After taking Doan's
Kidney Pills a short time, which I
got from J. Nelson Clark's Drug Store,
: i got great relief. My back didn't
feel so stiff and lame and I didn't
I have much difficulty in getting up or
j down." (Statement given August 29,
1914.)
On January 26, 1916. Mrs. Wooley
added: "I have had but very little
bother from my kidneys since I gave
my former recommendation. When
I have, I have used Doan's Kidney
Pills with as great success as always."

ply ask for a kidney remedy—get
