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,
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

patients suffering from gas in stomach
and bowels, and to clear the complexion

Attempt to Intervene in Iowa,
Livestock Hearing lietore
Commissioner Pronty
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
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
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'
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

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
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.

The feminine organism is a regular net work of nerves, and it is
when the nerve force is lacking that the
weakness and irregularities, the backaches
and bodily pains make themselves felt.
It is because Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve
Pills form new, rich blood and create new
herve force that they have become noted as
111 a cure for ills peculiarly feminine.
"I have been very nervous for a long time, suffering so much from per
sistent headaches and could not sleep well at nights. I was so bad last
spring that I had to have a doctor and again last fall I was very poorly
and seeing DR. A. W. CHASE'S NERVE PILLS recommended I got a box
and used them. Since then I have had no headaches—I sleep well and feel
generally vigorous and strong. They are certainly a fine medicine. I also
gave some to my little boy for nervousness and they acted just as well
for him. As a consequence, I feel I can't recommend the medicine too
highly/'—Mrs. Fred Korn, 175 WellsSt., Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
"My trouble was principally extreme nervousness, dizziness and a
weak heart—I was restless and the heart action was irregular. I got a box
of DR. A. W. CHASE'S NERVE PILLS and as a result of their use my
system is in splendid shape again—nerves steady—quiet and strong—sleep
restful—the heart action regular—the great strength excellent, and the
dizziness all gone. The result justifies the statement that the pills are a
very fine nerve and heart medicine and I have no hesitancy in recommend
ing them to every one."—Mr*. E. Weyburn, Nappanee, Ind.
