SALE OF THE OFFICIAL POSTAL
GUIDE AT REDUCED PRICES
TO THE PUBLIC
Postoffice Department, Washington,
June i, 1916.
Better knowledg' of the postal
conditions and requirements on the
part of the public means improved
service rendered by postal em
ployees. A copy of the Official Pos
tal Guide, issued in July annually,
should be a part of the necessary
equipment of every business con
cern, of every school or institution,
and, in fact, of all who may use the
postal service. The Guide is es
pecially essential to users of the
parcel post, as the list of post of
fleces arranged by States contains
the unit numbers. Zone keys are
obtainable from local postmasters.
Heretofore the Postal Guide has
been sold to the public by the pub
lishers at $3.50 for the cloth and
3.00 for the paper bound copies,
including monthly supplements.
Beginning with the issue for the
month of July, 1916, the Guides
will be sold to the public by the
Post Office Department at greatly
reduced Ifrices.
As the price of any single copy
id so small, it is suggested that,
where possible, clubs be formed,
one remittance covering the com
bined subscriptions.
Remittances should be made by
money order. Currency is sent at
sender's risk. Po4age, foreign
' money, defaced or sriooth coin will
;t be accepted. All orders for

can now walk two mIles wilhat ts

If you are all run down from wonmnly
troubles, don't give up in despair. Try
Cardui, the woman'stoalc. It has helped
more than a million women, in Ite 50
years of continuous success, and should
surely help you, too. Your druggist has
sold Cardud for years. He knows what

LIV-VER-LAX
All the Effectiveness, Not the Effect
of Calomel
Liv-Ver-Lax is one of the most im
portant medical discoveries of re
5 cent years. For a long time medi
cal experts, realizing the harmful
effects of calomel, have been striv
iing to find a liver cleaner ' that
would be just as effective as calo
I mel, and yet be absolutely -harmless
in its action. Recently this remedy
was actually put forth by L. K.
Grisby, in his Liv-Ver-Lax.
Liv-Ver-Lax is a harmless vege
table compound, designed solely for
the treatment of liver complaints.
The immediate favor it has met
with in thousands of homes is proof
positive.of itsc real value.
If you feel worn. out, tongue
coated, and skin sallQw, don't delay
until it becomes dangerous, nip the
trouble in the bud with Liv-Ver
Lax. Insist on the genuine, bearing
the- signature and likeness of L. K.
Grisby, which is guaranteed to give
satisfaction or money. refunded.

Feder al Inquiry or
Railroad Strike
Faced by demands from the conductors, engineers,' firemen and balenmen:
that would impose on the country an additional .burden·in transportation c.=sts of .
$100,000,000 a year, the railroads propose that this wage problem be settled byT
reference to an impartial Federal tribuial.
i With these employes, whose efficient service ist acknowledged, the, railroads
have no differences that could not be considered fairly and decided justly by suchi
a public body.
Railroads Urge Public Inquiry and Arbitration
The formal proposal of the railroads to the employes for the settlement of
the controversy is as follows.:
"Our conferences have demonstrated that we cannot harmonize our direrences of opinion and that eventually Athe
matters in controversy must be passed upon by other and disinterested agencies. Therefore, we propine that yor.
proposals and the proposition of the railways be disposed of by one or the other of thd' following methodi:
1. Preferably by submission to the Interstate Commerce Commission, the only tribunal which, by reason o its
accumulated information bearing on railway conditions and its control of the reveno. of the railwaysi is is a posi
tion to consider and protect the rights and equities of all the interests affected, and to provide .additioai reruei
necessary to meet the added cmst of operatie. in case your proposals are fooud by the Commission to be just. ain
reasonable; or, is the event the Interstate Commerce' Commission cannot, under existing laws, act in the premiseN
that we jointl request Coitres to take such action as may be necessary to ea~ie the Comhaission to eseaiderj I
promptly dispose of the questions involved- or
2. Sy arbitration in accordsace with the provisions of the Federal law" (The tNewlands Ac).
Leaders Refuse Offer and Take Strike Vote
Leaders of the train service brotherhoods, at the joint conference held in New r
York, June 1-15, refused the offer of the railroads to submit thie issue to' arbitration
or Federal review, and the employes are now yoting on the question whether
authority shall be given these leaders to declare a otion-wibde strikes
The rinirstate Commerce Commission is proposed by the raitoadsd as the

Why Burdn a Friend with the
Care of Your Estate'?
Unquestionably it shows confidence in' your
friend's ability and integrity to name him as ex
ecutor and trustee of your estate% but is it fair
to place on him such a burden of responsibility? . :a
Can he aff.ird, from tie standpoint of his own
personal interests, to accept. such an appoint
ment?
Why not consider the, selection of an execu
tor and trustee as a business matter, and appoint
the Union Bank & Trust Company, which is or
ganized especially to undertake the duties of
runsteeship?
It is the Company's business to be thoroughly
familiar..with.all the phases of trust business,
and its organization is so complete and so well
systematized that all details of administration
are promptly and correctly attended to.
A fact not generally understood is that the
highly specialized and competent service ren
dered by: this Company costs no more than the
service of an individual executor, trustee or
admpinistrator and there is no charge for a surety
bond.
The officers of the Company will be glad to
falk with you, or to send you information in re
gard to any trust or banking matters you may
;have in mind.
