attempted to clear himself, but also did
not involve Chief Schmitt, but admitted
that he heard that liquor had been trans
ported into Evansville.
Both Freidle and Trautwein testi
fied they made an attempt to catch the
booze runners.
“How many catches did you make in
the police boat?" the court asked
Freidle.
’ One,” answered Freidle.
Trautwein admitted that a tip came
to headquarters from a minister at Hen
derson, Ky., that a shipment of booze
was coming into town by a certain road.
Trautwein stated that the chief or
dered -him to remain at police head
quarters instead of going out and hunt
ing for the booze runners.
“Yo uwere to arrest them If they hap
peqpd to come to headquarters?” asked
District Attorney YanNuys.
The witness was silent. '
CONGRESSMAN USED AS
1 CHARACTER WITNESS.

for Fred Ossenberg.
On cross-examination by District At
torney VanNuys, Luhring admitted that
i Ossenberg’s place of business is in the
colored district and that Luhring and
Ossenberg often had conferences.
“You mea nthat Freddie Ossenberg is
a political boss down there?” asked the
district attorney.
“Not a boss from the standpoint of
being corrupt,” snapped Luhring.
VanNuys asked, “if a political boss
means a man who can control enough
votes to swing an election, then Ossen
; berg is a political boss?”
| “Yes,” answered Luhring.
Luhring explained to the court that he
was just a viistor and was suddenly
called as a witness.

with the stipulation that an art museum should be built and an art
school conducted which should bear his name.
For what fine piece of art is Indianapolis noted?

FEELING FINE NOW
Si
Indianapolis man suffered from rheu
matism, kidney trouble, conetW
pation and loss of sleep.
Dreco gave him prompt relief and he
now claims it to be the best med
icine In the world.
Mr. Geo. W. Matthews, who lives at 860
W. Maryland Are,, has lived In Indianap
olis, lad., all his life. When he was a
little boy, during the Civil wax, he sold
papers on the streets. He worked for
the Big 4 R. R. (where he is still em
ployed) as brakeman in I£BS. before air
i brakes were invented.
“For some time I’ve suffered from
rheumatism of the joints and muscles. I
could not bend over except with greet
pain and my joints would snap and pop
with any quick movement,” said Mr.
Matthews. My kidneys troubled me a
great deal and I frequently had to get
up during the night, my back ached al
most constantly.
“My bowels were so badly constipated
that I had to take some kind of medicine
all the time, my nerves were on edge ao
that I hardly knew what a night of
sound refreshing sleep was like.
“One bottle of Dreco has brought abont
a great change in me. The rheumatic
pains are gone; 1 never have a bachacke,
can stoop and bend over like I was a boy
again, my sleep is sound and I rise of
mornings feeling full of vim and vigor.
Dreco did for me what other medicines
failed to do, and I gladly praise it"
The old-faehloned remedies, made from
roots and herbs, are tho best for any one
to take. Dreco is made from r.velve dlf- '
ferent roots, herbj, barks and leaves.
These act on the' stomach, bowels and
kidneys and purify the blood. " Dreco
knocks rheumatism out shortly;
catarrh of the head and stomach;
you Bleep soundly and creates a good ap
petite. Asa blood purifier nothing can
equal Dreco. It puts a stop to boils,
eczema and other blood affections.
Mr. Williamson, the well-known Dreco
expert, bus headquarters at Clark .*
Cade's Clnypool Hotel Drug Store, to
meet the local public and explain the
merits of th's great remedy. Sea him
