This rule must be abandoned if the plan for an exchange of goods with Russia is to be a success, it was said at the state department.

THIN PEOPLE NEED BITRO PKOSPHATE Increases Weight, Strength and Nerve Force in Two Weeks Time in Many Instances Judging from the countless prepara tions and treatments which are con- i tinually being advertised for the pur- j pose of making thin people fleshy, de- I veloping arms, neck and bust, and re placing ugly hollows and angles by the I soft, curved lines of health and beauty, j there are evidently thousands of men and women who keenly feel their exces sive thinness. ' ’• 4 -- Thinness and •weakness are often dne to starved nerves. Our bodies need more phosphate than is contained in modern foods. Physicians claim there is noth ing that will supply this deficiency so well as the organic phosphate known among druggists as bitro-phospbate, which is inexpensive and is sold by Haag's Seven Stores, also Hook’s drug stores and most all druggists under a guarantee of satisfaction or money back. By feeding the nerves directly and by supplying the body ells with the neces sary phosphoric food elements, bltro phosphate should produce a welcome transformation in the appearance; the increase in weight .frequently being as tonishing. Increase In weight also carries with it a Y general improvement in the health. Nervousness, sleeplessness and lack of energy, which nearly always accompany excessive thinness, should oon disap pear, dull eyes ought to brighten, and pale cheeks glow with the bloom of perfect health. Miss Georgia Hamilton, who was once thin and frail, reporting her own experience, writes: “ißitro- Ph.osphnte has brought about a magic transformation with me. I gained 15 pouuik and never before felt so well.” CAT TION :—While Bitro-Phosphate is unsurpassed for the relief of nervous ness, genferal debility, etc., those taking It who do not desire to put on flesh should use extra care in avoiding fat producing foods.—Advertisement. INDIANAPOLIS. INDIANA ASSERTS CITY COUNCIL’S NOT MERELY NAME— Schmidt Demands Right to Pass on Purchase of Two Patrols. ORDINANCE IS ADOPTED T,he power of the city administration to enter into contracts for purchasing supplies without prior sanction by the city council wax questioned at a meet ing of the council last night, when gen eral ordinance No. 4 was called for sec ond reading. The ordinance provided for a ratifica tion of a contract for the purchase of two police patrols entered into between the city and L. H. Colvin, agent for the White Automobile Company, for $7,600. Gustav G. Schmidt, president of the council, asked why the council was not called upon to approve the contracts. He said it was the duty of the council to pass on all contracts for amounts ex ceeding $2,000 and also remarked that all such contracts should be advertised and let on bids after the prescribed manner. “If members of the council do not pass on snch contracts we will be mere figureheads,” said Mr. Schmidt, “and if such is the case I might as well have a rubber stamp made with my name on it and send a substitute here to use It.” NOT TRYING TO PUT OVER ANYTHING ON COUNCIL. Councilman Carnefix said he did not believe they were trying to “slip any thing over on the council.” He also said the ordinance had been presented to get the approval of the council. Mr. Carnefix said the only feature of the contract he did not like was the fact that the purchasing members of the administration promised Colvin to buy the patrols without first asking the sanction of the council. The ordinance was passed after the discussion. Ordinances amending ana correcting errors in general ordinance No. 12 were passed. In an ordinance passed at a previous 1 meeting salaries of various city em- j ployes were fixed, two members of the j engineering department being classed as ! “A" and “B." The salary of "A” was set at $1,200 per year and “B” at $1,020. Through a mistake both of the men were classed under A. The superintendent of street gas lighting had been left out al together. His salary was fixed at $1,600 a year. LICENSE REQUIRED OF NEWSBOYS.
