Beverage Act by Big Vote.
The Fifteenth Idaho legislature re
moved objections raised to the amenda
tory state convention-primary law
Monday afternoon. Under suspension
of tho rules both houses passed sen
ate bill 188, accomplishing this. In the
house the Nonpartisan« stood solidly
against suspension. While many of
the Democrats voted to set aside the
rules, some of them stood with the
Nonpartisans in voting against the bill.
The Republicans supported it solidly.
The objections were raised by Governor
Davis. Tho amendatory ' bill passed
was therefore a compromise.
NOT PARTISAN ACTION.
The union of Democrats with the Re
publicans removes the passage of the
new primary law from the realm of
partisan politics and renders it unlike
ly, in the view of legislators of both par
ties. that it will be used as a campaign
football excepting by the Nonpartisan
This amendatory act provides that in
tho event county or legislative candi

It also changes the date for holding
state primary conventions from the
third to the second Tuesday in Au
gust. It was found that senate bill 08
did not give sufficient time between the
naming of the delegates and the date
for the convention to certify the names
of the former.
Tho Democrats objected to unani
mous consent being given to place the
new senate bill on final passage. Fea
therstone attempted to explain it to
the minority. Hitchcock wanted until
today to consider it. Young then
moved a recess of 20 minutes to permit
the minority to go over the provisions
of tho measure. The motion prevailed.
The Democrats adjourned to caucus
on the bill, later returned, the rules
were suspended by a vote of 51 to C.
On final passage the measure was ap
proved by a vote of 46 to 13. Know of
Lemhi and Pugh of Gfin, both Demo
crats, left the minority ranks and voted
with the Republicans.
DEFEAT ANTI-ALCOHOLIC BILL.
The Drake-Sutcliffe-Storey anti-al
coholic medicine and beverage act

defeated. Only 11 members voted for
it. including the authors, three in

Santel is billed to take on a Jul-Jitsu
wrestler at Portland tonight, and will
leave for Boise immediately after the
match. Ad is not very keen for this
.liii-jitsu stuff, though he is clever at
II. He says that it would be all right,
but he hates to have to wear a kimono
—not being used to such wearing ap
parel to wrestle in. Three times he
has tackled the Jap wonder, Raro
Miyake, and three times he has got a
draw with him at his own game. Once
Ad nearly got a fail from Taro or
Karo or whatever it is—something no
wrestler has ever been able to perform
yet. To get a fall in jul-jitsu means
getting an opponent in such a position
that he admits defeat.
Nelson will -work out with Chat

during his period of training, and the
bugs are invited to visit the gym of
"Nifty Nick" to get am eyeful of his
methods of doing business. He has
worked against Jnc Stecher, Pete
Visser, Harbertson and others noted in
the mat world, and has defeated many
of the good tyies. True, he has been
beaten, but those who did it were
world's champions in a recognized
class, and they had to go some to pin
his shoulders to the mat.
ASKING PARDON FOR
Though it has been impossible this
morning to get a glimpse of the matter
being circulated in Boise, several peo
ple have stated that they have been
approached at their homes by women
engaged in circulating a petition ad

that he pardon ull ''conscientious ob

obey their country's call.
According to the information at
hand, bills were distributed in various
homes of this city Sunday calling at
tention to these men being imprisoned
and the unfairness of it all. The hills
were then followed up in true publicity

Make This Test For
There are millions of people who
suffer almost daily from the horrors
of an acid-stomach—indigestion; sour,
gassy, stomach; distressing heart-
burn; sickening food-repeating; pain-
ful bloat and that miserable, puffed
up, lumpy feeling after eating. Many
of these people nave tried treatment
after treatment; medicine after medi-
cine; others have gone to doctors
and stomach specialists and some to
hospitals but m spite of all of their
efforts they have obtained no lasting
relief or a permanent cure.
- These symptoms simply mean acid-
stomach. If allowed to run on, they
are very likely to cause a lot of ser-
ious trouble. Dyspepsia, rheumatism,
gout, lumbago, sciatica, splitting
Headache, dizzy spells, nervousness,
sleeplessness, mental depression, mel-
ancholia, a feeling of listlessness and
all-goneness—these are just a few of
the disorders which can be traced to
acid-stomach. As a matter of fact,
acid-stomach is often the direct cause
of those almost incurable conditions
known as catarrh of the stomach, in-
testinal ulcer, and cancer of the stom-
ach. The lives of those who suffer
from these serious troubles are nothing
short of daily agony. Surely, then,
you must see how important it is to

DR. C. S. ALLEN RECEIVES
THAT BROTHER IS SAFE
A letter received by Dr. O. Sandford
Allen of Boise conveys the welcome
information that his brother, Captain
W. D. Allen, with the medical corps of
the Fifth division, U. S. A., Is safe in
Luxemburg, Germany, and has been
promoted to the rank of mayor.
Dr. Allen has been much concerned
about his brother, the captain having
been taken with a severe attack of
Spanish influenza some months ago.
Dr. Allen tried by cable to get Into
communication with his brother but
failed, and did not know whether he
was alive or dead until he received the
letter from him this morning.
Major Allen writes that the Germans
mouth does to tho teeth—how it eats
right through the hard enamel and
causes them to decay. Think then
of the havoc that must be caused by
excess acid in the stomach!
Even if you are not suffering any
immediate stomach pains, but are not
feeling just as lit and fine as you
should, you should by all means make
this test: go to your drug store at
once and get a big box of EATONIC.
It is in the form of pleasant-taeting
tablets—you eat them like a bit of
candy. EATONIC is prepared for
just one purpose — correcting acid
stomach by driving out the excess
acid. EATONIC literally absorbs
the excess acid. It brings instant re
lief from the pains of indigestion,
heartburn, belching, sour, gassy
stomach, bloat, etc. It makes the
stomach pure, sweet, cool and com
fortable, puts it in a normal, healthy
condition, so that your food is proper
ly digested. You need every bit of
strength you can possibly get out of
tho food you eat—and EATONIC
helps you get it.
Don't put this test off if you value
your future good health and happi
ness. You run no chance at all be
cause EATONIC is absolutely guar
anteed to give you relief or your
druggist will refund your money.
The coat is a mere trifle.
U$E THIS LAXATIVE!
Dietitians advize a "careful diet," but that is troubla
• ora ° 1 to moat people; physical culturists advise "certain
exercises,'' which is good if one has both the time and the
inclination. Doctors advise diet and exercise and mtdtoins.
The question is, shall it be a cathartic or purgative med
icine? Or a mild, gentle laxative?
Thousands have decided the question to their own satis
faction by using a combination of simple laxative herbs
with pepsin known to druggists as Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin. A small dose gives a free, easy movement of the
wiwels. It is the best substitute for nature herself. In fact,
since the ingredients are wholly from the vegetable kin g do m
It may truthfully be said it is a natural laxative.
Us P° sitive but gentle action on the bowels makes It an
Ideal remedy for constipation. The dose is small, and it may
be taken with perfect safety until the bowels are regulated and
act again of their own accord.
The druffiat will refund your money if it fail a to
do aa ptomiaed.

the officers and men are holding them

DAILY HEALTH TALKS
The Beat Way to Treat
By S. C. BABCOCK, M. D.
The medical books name many drugs
that will move the bowels. The drug
store shelves are loaded down with
laxatives, purgatives and pills. The
trouble with most of them Is the
arter-effects. Constipated people know
that pills work all right for a little
while, but they soon lose their effect,
and a change has to be made to some
thing else. The constant taking of
pills results in a form of bowel In
activity that is difficult to cure. The
system / becomes so accustomed to
laxative drugs that the organs Jpst
won't work without them, and so the
pill habit becomes as bad as consti
pation Itself. Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo,
N. Y., seems to me to have the right
Idea. He says the bowels should flrst
be gently moved with Pierce's Pleas
ant Pellets, and In the meantime lax
ative foods only should be eaten. Figs,
prunes, olive oil, spinach, bran, veg
etables and fruits are fine for consti
pation. Chew every bite thoroughly,
eat little meat, and be as active as
possible. Now, doesn't that seem
sensible? Pleasant Pellets will start
the bowels working right; then It is up
to you to keep them right by right
eating. Try Pleasant Pellets for sick
headache, coated tongue, biliousness,
dizziness, torpid liver or to break up a
cold.^ They are Just fine!
DtvPierce's Anodyne Pile Ointment
soothes, cools and heal3 piles in a
most gratifying way. Perhaps there Is
no other remedy for this torturing
trouble that relieves so surely and
quickly. Dr. Pierce believes Anodyne
Pile Ointment will overcome any case
that can be overcome by medical treat
ment. Try It right now.
Dr. Pierce's Anurlc Tablets are In
tended for people who suffer from kid
ney disorders—whose backs ache, and
whose systems are overrun with uric
acid. Nearly everybody has too much
uric acid. Anurlc Tablets dissolve
uric acid quickly, as they are made
