Few People Know How Useful It Is Ir Preserving Health and Beauty. Coat Nothing To Try. Nearly everybody knows that char coal is the safest and most efficient disinfectant and purllier in nature, but few realize its value when taken into the human system for the same cleans ing purpose. Charcoal is a remedy that the more you take of it the better it is not a drug at all, but simply absorbs the gases and impurities always present in the stomach and intestines and car ries them out of the system. Charcoal sweetens the breath after smoking, drinking or after eating on ions and other odorous vegetables. Charcoal effectually clears and im proves the complexion, it whitens the teeth and further acts as a natural and eminently safe cathartic. It absorbes the injurious gases which collect in the stomach and bowels it disinfects the mouth and throat from the poison of catarrh. All druggists sell charcoal in one form or another, but probably the best charcoal and the most for the money is in Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges they are composed of the finest powdered Willow charcoal ,and other harmless antiseptics in tablet form or rather in the form of large pleasant tasting loz enges, the charcoal being mixed with, honey. The daily use of these lozenges will soon tell in a much improved condi tion of the general health, better com plexion, sweeter breath and purer blood, and the beauty of it is, that no possible harm can result from their continued use, but, on the contrary, great benefit. A Buffalo physician, in speaking of the benefits of charcoal says "I ad vise Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges to all patients suffering from gas in stomach and bowels, and to clear the complexion afld purify the breath, mouth and throat I also believe the liver is great ly benefited by the daily use of them they cost but twenty-five cents a box at drug stores, and altho in some sense a patent preparation, yet I believe I get more and better Charcoal In Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges than in any of the ordinary charcoal tablets."

Railway Representatives Contend That Chicago and Not Iowa Would Benefit From Reduction—Hearing Brief and Adjournment Taken to Feb. 17 in Special to Times-Republican. Des Moines, Jan. 18.—Whether the Chicago packers or the shippers ot' Iowa livestock should be benefited by interstate rail rates is the question so far presented in the hearing before Commerce Commissioner Prouty in Des Moines. A Marshalltown lawyer who appeared as intervenor on behalf of Iowa packers lent variety to the hearing which was later adjourned to' February 17, in Chicago. I That the packers would absorb any reduction the railroads might make In interstate freight rates on Iowa cattle and the producers would not get any benefit was the only objection offered by the railway attorneys to granting the reduction asked by the Corn Belt Meat Producers' Association of Iowa at the hearing. The expression of the railway's view of the matter was made by S. A. Lynde interstate commerce counsel of the Chicago & Northwestern railway. Of course the railways will offer other ob jections later, but they Were not pre pared yesterday to defend the case of the Iowa livestock men which was sub mitted by Attorney Clifford Thome of Washington. At the request of the railroads. Com missioner Prouty adjourned the hear ing until February 17, when the rail ways wilj present their side of the con troversy in Chicago. If the Iowans wish to rebut any of the evidence sub mitted there by the railways and do not find it convenient to take their witnesses to Chicago, Commissioner Prouty announced that another hearing would be granted in Des Moines. The case of the Corn Belt Meat Pro ducers' association in brief is to se cure a reduction of between 20 and 25 per cent in the interstate rates on live stock, reducing them to the maximum freight rates allowed by the state rail way commissions In Iowa, Illinois and Missouri. They also ask for the feed ing in transit rates, which the rail ways refuse Iowa feeders, altho the privilege Is granted to feeders in Ne braska, Kansas and other states. An effort will also be made to secure bet ter service in the transportation of live stock, The case of the Iowans had been re duced almost entirely to writing. Sixty or seventy•• exhibits were introduced, consisting: of'masses of tables compar ing freight rates from Iowa points to the live stock markets with the rates from other states, and especially with the maximum rates or the actual rates charged by the roads when giving sim ilar service under the distance tariffs of Illinois, Missouri and Iowa. It is alleged in the evidence ^submitted by Mr. Thome for his clients that the In terstate freight rate on live stock from Iowa points to Chicago is about 15 per cent higher than the Missouri dis tance tariff, 20 per cent higher than the Iowa distance tariff and 28 per cent higher than the Illinois distance tariff. The exhibits concerning the discrim ination against Iowa farmers show that the refusal of railways to extend the feeding in transit rate privilege to them amounts to between $10 and $60 per car load. A great mass of statistics to prove this allegation was compiled by H. C. Wallace of Wallaces' Fanner. Iowa Packers Ask to Intervene. Attorney Boardman of Marshalltown caused an unexpected stir early in the case yesterday by appearing before Commissioner Prouty and asking the privilege of intervening on behalf of the Morrell Packing company, the T. M. Sinclair Packing company and oth er Iowa packers. He said that the granting of the petition of the Corn Belt Meat Producers' association might seriously affect the Iowa packing houses. Commissioner Prouty, after consulting- Attorney Thorne and hear ing the latter*s objection to the pro posed Intervention, refused to permit Mr. Boardman to Intervene. The railroads tried hard to make a point of the contention of Attorney Boardman and In .the brief cross exam ination of H. C. Wallace, endeavored to make him declare that the reduced rates to Chicago and other big live stock markets would be detrimental to the Iowa packing houses. iMr. Wallace declared that the prices of live stock in Iowa were made on the Chicago quotations. He said that he did not want to disparage the Iowa packing houses, but that a few exper iences of his own led him to this conclusion. He said that the Iowa packers took a greater shrinkage than did the packers at the Chicago mar ket. He also declared that he had been able to get better prices in some cases by shipping his stuff to Chicago. Attorneys Question Wallace. Attorneys Holden of the Burlington, Ellis of the Milwaukee and Lynde of the Northwestern, attempted to show Mr. Wallace that he and his associates in the appeal a few months ago to the Iowa railway commission to reduce the Iowa rates on live stock and urged It on the grounds that it would be bene ficial to the Towa packing establish BETTER THAN SPANKING Spanking does not cure children of bed-wetting.

This treat ment also cures adults and aged peo ple troubled with urine difficulties by ds.y or night. 4 ments by helping' to buiid up home in dustries. Following this, they endeav ored to make him admit that a reduc tion in the interstate rates would re sult in more cattle being shipped out of the state. Mr. Wallace denied both statements. Fie .said that the reduction in the Iowa distance tariff had been secured to offset the lack of the feeding in tran sit rate in Iowa. He said that by re ducing in stock cattle could be bought at the markets on the borders Of the state and then shipped to the dealer's home under the new Iowa distance tar iff at less expense than the stock could have been shipped from the stale in which it originated to the Iowa destin ation under the interstate rate. Fol lowing this explanation Mr. Wallace said he did not believe that the re duction in rates would materially In crease the live stock shipments from Iowa, but that it would protect the feeders and give them an equal show with the feeders of other states. Would Protect Iowa. Here Mr. Wallace was allowed by Commissioner Prouty to make an ex planation as to the real purpose of the live stock men's effort to secure re duced rates. Mr. Wallace said that the future of Iowa depended upon its abil ity to maintain the live stock indus try. The industry provided a fertilizer for renewing the soli. He said that oth er states bad allowed the soil to be come worn out and now had to resort to chemical fertilizers. He declared that the live stock Industry In Iowa was now all right, but unless it was protected and safeguarded there was danger of it gradually being driven out and Iowa becoming a state of deserted farms like eastern sections of the Un ited States have already done. Mr. Wallace admitted that It was ,to a large degree at any rate. Then Mr. Lynde insisted, as*a nat ural sequence, .the buyers would cut the amount of rate reduction Off the price- they would pay, so that the live stock men and the railways would both be beaten out of the amount granted by the reduced rate.*. Not Much Oral Testimony. There wasn't much oral testimony introduced aside from Mr. Wallace. Charles Howe, a rate expert, who com piled the numerous tables comparing Iowa rates with those of other states, was put on the stand merely to swear to his findings and permit their ad mission. A. Sykes of Ida. Grove, president of the •Corn Belt Meat Producers' asso- I ciation, testified at some length con cerning how the lack of feeding in transit rate discriminates against Iowa. He said that it Is the only rea son why Iowa should not how enjoy and always enjoy supremacy over other states In the live stock indus try. He said that the discrimination amounted to between $10 and $50 per car, depending upon the Iowa point that is compared with the stations In other states. INSTITUTE AT SPENCER.

Special to Times-Republican. Des Moines, Jan. 18.—A garter with a pretty silk ribbon and "frat"-engraved buckle is said to have been the cause of the assault which Carl Lane Clem ens of Snohomish, Wash., made yes terday on R. H. Dosh of Stuart, in the state house. The garter was given by Dosh to Mrs. Clemens twelve or fifteen years ago, according to old friends and classmates of the two, while they were students at Simpson College, Indlan ola. Neither man had ever met the other before when they 'met by accident on business yesterday in the attornuy general's office. 'Clemens heard Dosh give his name to the clerk, asked him his initials. Invited him out into the corridor and knocked him down. Then the two men walked out Into the street where Clemens knocked him down a"ain, Dosh's head hitting the side walk with sucli force that he Is still In the Methodist hospital in a critical condition. Both men are lawyers about 30 years of age, and Clemens was formerly a foot ball player and coach at Leland Stanford Jr. University, and is well known on the Pacific coast. Dosh is siaid to have given the gar ter to Mrs. Clemens at Simpson Col lege, years before Clemens met her on the Pacific coast, where she was visit ing friends. He has never liked the donor of the garter and has been in sanely jealous of Dosh. Mrs. Clem ens and Dosh have not met for years, neither have they corresponded, but this seems to have mad'e no difference to Clemens. Ho is said to have brood ed over the garter and its "frat" buckle with the engraved initials, and noth ing that Airs. Clemens could say or reason dictate would cool his anger. So when Clemens met Dosh at the capltol Wednesday and asked him, "How about that garter?" nothing that Dosh could say would clear up the matter.
