Pink horn's Vegetable Compound Has an Unequalled Recotd of Cures Mrs. 1inkh,am's Advice Is Confiden tial, Free, and always Helpful ,1 Fijut. That almost every operation in oar hospitals performed upon women becomes necessary through neglect of such symptoms as backache, irregular and painful menstruation, leuoorrhoea, 'displacements of the uterus, pain in the side, burning sensation in the stom ach, bearing-down pains, nervousness, dizziness and sleeplessness. Second. The medicine that holds the record for the largest number of absolute cures of female ills is Lydia E. Pinkham'a Vegetable Compound. It regulates, strengthens and cures diseases of the female organism aa nothing else can. For thirty years it has been helping women to be strong, curing backache, nervousness, kidney troubles, all uter ine and ovarian inflammation, weak ness and displacements, regulating menstruation perfectly and overcom ing its pains. It has also proved itself Invaluable in preparing for childbirth and the change of life. , Third. The great volume of unso licited and grateful testimonials on file at the Pinkham Laboratory at Lynn, Mass., many of which are from time to time published by permission, give ab solute evidence of the value of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and Mrs. Pinkham's advice. Fourth. Every ailing woman in the United States is Asked to accept the following invitation. It is free, will bring you health and may save your life. Mrs. Pinkham'e Standing Invitation to Women. Women suffering from any form of female weakness are invited to promptly communicate with Mrs. Pink ham, at Lynn, Mass. All letters are received, opened, read and answered by women only. From symptoms given, your trouble may be located and the quickest and surest way of recovery advised. Out of the vast volume of ex perience in treating female ills Mrs. Pinkham probably has the very knowl. edge that will help your case. 8urely, any woman, rich or poor, is very foolish if she does not take advantage of this generous offer of assistance. 1 "t Dog tags put on free of charge.

No one should confound Hyomel with the patent medicines that are advertised to cure catarrh. It la as far superior to them all as the diamond Is more valuable than cheap glass. Their composition Is secret, but Hyomel gives Its formula tA all reputable physicians. Ita base Is the valuable eucalyptus oil, famous for lta antiseptic qualities. This Is combined with aromatic and healing guma and balsams, making a pure liquid, which when used In the Hyomel pocket Inhaler, nils the air you breathe with germ-killing, disease-destroying and heal ing powers that kills all catarrhal germs there may be In the throat, nose and lungs. How foolish It Is to try and cure catarrh by swallowing tablets or liquids. The only natural way to cure this disease and all other diseases of the respiratory organs Is to breathe Hyomel. This treatment has been so successful, curing 99 per cent of all who have used It, that Hyomel Is now sold by Sherman A McConnell Drug Co. under an absolute guarantee to refund the money If It does not cure. Tou run no risk whatever In buying Hyomci. If it did ni$ po8 un usual powers to cure. It could not be sold upon this plan.

The many friends of Nahan Franko of the Metropolitan opera company house or chestra are very sorry that he did not conduct In Omaha. Mr. Franko Is very sorry also. "I should have liked very much to con duct here," he said at the Iler Grand yes terday afternoon, "so "that my friends who used to know me here eighteen years ago could sea how well I have worked since that time and that I have made some suc cess. It waa the same at New Orleans, where I was born. On this tour we have divided the conducting so that we each have certain operas. I did not know we were coming to Omaha until the schedule had been arranged. I conducted In Minne apolis and will In Kansas City, but not here where I so much wished to do so." Mr. Franko took charge of the Metro politan opera house orchestra seven years ago, and has brought it to Its present state of perfection. When he began the orchestra disbanded during the winters, but he keeps them together summer and winter now and has some great artists among the perform ers. The orchestra Is his great enthusiasm. "To Bhow you how they play," he says with enthusiasm, "I will Just tell you about what happened at Pittsburg the other day. "Die Melsterslnger" Is considered to make one of the greatest demands on an orches tra. It Is as hard as a concerto. In Pitts burg the lights went out suddenly by ac cident when we were playing; the orches tra went on for five minutes In the dark and did not miss a note." Mr. Franko leaves New York May 2. the day after the return of the company from the present tour, and goes to London, where he will conduct some concerts. He will also go to Italy. His present position Is different from his condition when he came out to Omaha an unknown young musician. "It was a great life here then," says Mr. Franko, smiling remlnlscently; "I was organist In Kountze Memorial church, con ductor In the theater, leader of three men's singing societies, a woman's oratorio so ciety, giving orchestral concerts and cham ber music; giving lessons In Council Bluffs and Fremont and In Omaha, and being In structor at Brownelll hall and doing many other things. I liked Omaha, but my friends told me It did not offer any chance for the future, so I decided to go to New York. But I had lost all my money, so to get away I went out as conductor for Henry B. Dixey's Adonis. This city al ways was crazy for good music. Whenever the people knew ' they were to' hear anything- good they always came out famously. When I first came here Minnie Hauck sang and the American opera company with Patti. They drew as large audiences as that of last night at the Auditorium. Omaha has always been a music loving city. FRAME BUILDING Rus AWAY Flla-ht of atmctore Alona Seven teenth Street Causes ome thlna of a Commotion. The two-story frame building which Is being moved north on North Seventeenth street broke away from the workmen Wednesday evening Just after crossing the car tracks at Dodge street and ran past the federal building to Capitol avenue. At Dodge street it caught a guy wire which holda in place an electric light pole and (he pole was snapped In two as If it were a match, letting the electric wires down upon the trolley wire beneath. No damage was done to the building. At Capitol avenue, where the grade ceased, it came to a stop of lta own accord. The building is the one formerly occupied by Hamilton Bros., con tractors, and It stood on Seventeenth street in the rear of the New York Ufe building.

LARGE OVERCHARGES ARE DISCOVERED Auditor Smith la Cheeking tP Ac counts and Already Kinds the County Kntltled to Some Extensive Credits. Is the county being overcharged by the electric lighting company for light fur nished the county hospital? To answer this question the commis sioners and auditor of Douglas county have gotten busy for some days back checking the bills of the electric lighting company. These bills are largely techni cal In makeup, being based on amount of light used, number ' of lamps, contract rates of discount, new lamps, and other details that only mathematicians can figure out from specific data. The officials have found enough questionable Items In the bills to interest them, and are still at work trying to ascertain Just what the facts are. It seems that in 1SW? a contract was entered Into with the electric light com pany. When the new auditor and his deputies took office they received Instruc tions to carefully examine all current as well aa all unpaid bills for lighting. A cursory examination did not prove satis factory, and a more detailed probing created a large doubt as to the correctness of tho charges. Bills for some eight months past, as near as can be learned, have been gone over, with the result that the county officials are about ready to complain of excessive charges. It Is said that It doea not appear certain whether the alleged overcharges are merely an evidence of carelessness or In tentional. But this Is certain, that the county has quite a large discount coming on Its electric lighting bills which has not been allowed for If the figures of the county officers are correct. This overlooked discount, or overcharge, or whatever It is, should make a very material reduction in the county bills, past, as well as future. It is also said that negotiations are now In progress with the managers of the elec tric lighting company looking to adjust ment. For this reason Chairman Kennard of the county board and Auditor Smith decline to go into details, but Insist that the county is in position to get all that Is coming to It. Something more definite Is promised shortly. OMAHA SHOULD BE BEAUTIFUL Colonel Richardson Tells Clifton Hill Improvers of City's Mataral Advnntnaes. Colonel R. W. Richardson and County At torney Slabaugh delivered addresses on the subject of civic improvement before the Clifton Hill Improvement club Thursday evening. There were a score of Interested men present and the points made by the speakers were well received. Colonel Richardson gave some attention to sketches of the topography and general features of many c(T the larger and more prominent cities of the land. He told what they are doing and planning In the line of esthetic ornamental betterment, both as to" business and ' residence thoroughfares. Drawing the lemons which suggested them selves from his observations during his travels, Colonel Richardson said that it was not only his personal opinion, but also the opinion of many widely traveled per sons with whom he had talked, that Omaha has a great many natural advantages In the way of loctlon and conformation for becoming one of thS very attractive home cities of the continent. With the comple tion of the system of parkways and the chain of boulevards at present under way or planned, and the proper and willing co operation of the people, he looked to see this city soon take its place among the talked of centers of the land. On another line of thought Colonel Rlch- ardson brought out the Importance of the city and the country working together for better rural roadways. He expressed the view that their Interests are Identical and reciprocity in matters of trade and business community, and that where good roads lead Into fine streets, there will the great est success be realized in business and in civic culture, which is not to be considered as of the city solely. Judge Slabaugh continued his campaign for personal effort on the part of all citi zens, whether home owners or householders. and commented enthusiastically on the pos- Ibllltles. As a member of the National Civic Improvement league, he offered to supply those interested with late leaflets Issued by that organization, containing suggestions calculated to be of value In the work. President Tom Johnson occupied the chair for the first time and announced a long list of committees that the Clifton Hill people will start to work at once. On the sewer penalty matter, he reported that, after consultation with lawyers, It was decided that the penalty will hove to be paid, as the club has waited too long before getting busy on the matter. He announced that the city treasurer will allow the people to pay their assessments for the sewer In In stallments of $5 or $10. The club will meet hereafter on the last Thursday of each month.

Chris Sorenson, a laborer at Swift's pack ing house In South Omaha, who lives at Ml North Eighteenth street. Jumped off electric car No. 122 near Sixteenth and Pine streets last evening at 7:20 o'clock before the car had been brought to a stop. He lost his balahce and fell very heavily, his head striking the pavement. He was taken In a dazed condition to a drug store nearby and the police station was notified. After the police surgeon hnd dressed what ap peared to be a severe bruise on the back of his head, Sorenson had recovered his strength and said he felt all right. He gave an address In South Omaha end was taken there In the patrol wagon, but no one there knew him. He was then brought back to the station, where his condition gradu ally became serious. He spit blood and showed evidence that he was suffering from concussion of the brain. He soon relapsed Into a semi-comatose condition. City Physician Ralph wns called to examine the man, but was unable to determine at the time the exact extent of his Injuries, although he thought they were of a serious character. It appears the man had not been drinking. His confusion as to the number of his residence arose from the fact that he moved to his present location yesterday. He Is not married, but lives with his sister. Announcements of the Theaters. The bill at the Orpheum this week 19 scoring heavily.

The note was dated February 27 and on that day Mr. Nathan sent the check by the messenger boy who brought the note. It wus paid At a bank and returned to him.
