Tho franchises and concessions held by
the Oakland Transit Consolidated from
the countv of Alameda and the various
municipal organizations a:e vastly val
uaole. The company controls a complete
monopoly of the Ftreet franchises of Oak
land, Alameda and Berkeley. No company
can ever come into Oakland and compete
with them because they have secured
every available franchise in these three
cities, and in addition hold a privilege
from Oakland to Hay«r&rds along th*
main highway, running south from Oak
land. These franchises were secured
from the various city and county govern

them for twice the amount of the assess

three years I suffered much from
heart trouble and at times I thought I would
drop dead. There was a feelin? of oppres-

could hardly walk. I began taking* Dr.
Miles' Nervine and Heart Core and am
happy to say that I no longer have that
worn-out look. I have gained m weight and
feel perfectly well. I will never be without

of results. His health has been good ever

A person who is suffering from heart dis-
ease is in just* as much danger as the fool-
hardy lad who ventures on thia ice at the
first appearance of freezing weather. Heart
disease is the most common cause of sudden
death. Statistics show that one person in
every four have a weak heart, that weak
hearts are as common as a weakness of any
other organ. When the heart is weak the
pulse is irregular, the blood is thin and poor,
the circulation sluggish, causing cold extrem-
ities. Dr. Miles* Heart Cure is a great heart
and blood tonic, it regulates the heart's
action, improves the circulation and sends a
stream of pure, red blood through every Tein
and artery, renewing health ana strength.
