No straining; of medical ethics can find any fault with it THE PRINCIPAL ACTIVE INGREDIENTS are prominently incorporated in the label on the bottle, that the people may know that the claims made for Peruna have a true justification..' The only departure we shall make from medical ethics in the conduct of Ptruna affairs in the future, is the fact that we shall continue to advertise and ell our product TO THE PEOPLE. If we would agree to sell to doctors only, to advertise for doctors only, then the medical fraternity would be obliged to recognize Peruna aa being entirely within their approval. , BUT WE SHALL NOT DO THIS. We shall continue to offer Peruna to the people. We shall continue to convey to the people our claims for Peruna aa a household remedy. We shall continue to supply the people with free literature, teaching them how to use our medicine, teaching them how to avoid disease, teaching them many things of benefit to the home. We shall continue to do this, whether the medical profession like it or not We are proposing from this time on to take the publio into our confidence. Notwithstanding that some imitators and aubstitutors will be attempting to put up something which they consider just aa good aa Peruna, we are going to draw aside the veil of secrecy and allow any one who chooses to know exactly OF WHAT PERUNA IS COMPOSED. This ought to disarm all honest criticism. We expect however, that crit icism will continue. On some pretext or other those who are envioua of the People Who Object to Liquid Medicines Can Now Secure Peruna Tablets. in foreign lands until the people of all the world are supplied with this valu able household remedy, WE CLAIM PERUNA TO BE A CATARRH REMEDY. Buy a bottle and u t7 it. If it helps you, be honest and acknowledge that it has helped you. f r . If you want ua to we will publish your statement exactly aa you furnish it to us. We will add no words, take away no words. If you wish us to we will publish your portrait in connection with it We will not do this without your Written request without your entire conaent Peruna ha benefited thousands of people afflicted with ohronio catarrh, in many phases and locations. At least that is what the people say to us, through unsolicited testimonials. Many thousand more will reap benefit from Peruna in spite of fabricated slanders to the contrary. WE GUARANTEE EVERY BOTTLE OF PERUNA TO CONTAIN THE INGREDIENTS PRINTED ON THE LABEL. We have taken great pains that every testimonial we use should be abso lutely true, in the exact language of the testifier. We have taken great pains that every photograph published should be the photograph of the person whose name it bears, that every word of every testimonial should be authorised by the hand that signed it We are determined to beat our opponents by being fairer than they are, by dealing squarer than they dare to. We are determined to meet falsehood t". with truth, duplicity with candor, insincerity with sincerity. We know that the users of Peruna wiU appreciate our stand. We believe that the dealers in Peruna will applaud our course. We expect even our op- E orients will be obliged to acknowledge finally that Peruna is not only an onest and useful remedy, but one of the GREATEST HOUSEHOLD MEDI ONES ON THE CONTINENT.

ADDING TO ASSESSMENT ROLLS Papreme Court Hold la t'awe from Omaha Assessor Mar Add Aa? f roper ty Omitted by Him. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, Jan. . (Special Telegram.) The supreme court this morning refused a rehearing; In the rase against Captain Allen O. Fisher of Chadron, who was disbarred for one year for presenting a fictitious rltilm before the legislature. The action of the court means the disbarment sentence will be carried out. The rase arose out of claim Fisher made to the legislature In behalf of the heirs of Herman Goedile, whose estate escheated to the state. The amount demanded was much larger than the amount to which they were entitled. State Auditor Rarton has announced the appointment of John W. Tulleys as state accountant to take the place of E. M. Fairfield. Tulleys Is now a county treas ury examiner and Mr. Barton now has a man under consideration to fill the vacancy caused by his transfer. Fences for Railroads. A. railroad company Is not required to enclose that portion of Its right-of-way, even outside of towns, villages, cities and public highways, the enclosure of which, by the construction of fences and cat'le guards, W3Uld be an Increased danger to human life. This Is the law as handed down bv the court today In the case of Horace E. Rurnham against The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railway company, appealed from Lancaster county. Mnat Have Contract. If a broker takes a piece of realty for sale and neglects to secure a written con tract providing for his compensation, he cannot recover on quantum meruit for serv ices rendered, nor for the value of the time expended by him in making a' sale. In other words, It must be there In black and white or he must hold the sack. This Is the law and It is reaffirmed in the case of Charles O. Nelson against Orlando W. Web ster et al. As to Omitted Property. In fin opinion handed down In the case of the Chicago House Wrecking company against the city of Omaha the court holds that a tax commissioner In a city may place on the tax rolls property omitted by him at the time of the regular assessment, placing upon the same the valuation fixed by the reviewing board, the only require ment being that he shall notify the prop erty owner to appear and show cause why such assessment should not be made. In 1899 the tax commissioner failed to place the property of the plaintiff on the tax rolls, which fact was discovered during the sitting of the board of review. The board placed the property on the rolls and fixed Its value at 130,000. The tax commls sioner then notified plaintiff of the action taken and Informed it that if it did not appear and show cause why this valuation should not stand it would remain as fixed t the board. The court holds that while the board of review had not the authority to assess, the notice served by the tax ccmmlssloner Indicated his intention to adopt the valuation made by the board unless a showing against such assessment should be made, and that his return of the roll to the board with the assessment of 1.10.000 was sufficient proof that ha had adopted it as his own.

Ran- Beauty and Bad Breath Cannot Go Together No Matter How a Woman May Try to Make Them. it aces not matter now oeaut.tul a wo man may be, If she la afflicted with bad breath she will be shunned and pitied by men and even women will studious y avoid her. If any woman doubts this statement let her make a point of asking a friend In whom she may confide, a man friend or relative. If he be honest he will tell her that foul breath from the mouth of a wo man will drive men from her more rapidly tr.an any other personal affliction. Foul breath arouses In man digust and where this qua lty Is brought Into play no amount of self-denial or reasoning can overcome xne natural repugnance which comes to man when he Is In company with such a woman. What Is true ot bad breath in woman Is not true in so' great a degree in men. Wo men are looked upon as the incarnation of sweetness, breeding, v.rtue and lefii.e ment Foul breath will sicken a man so that he cannot feel for such a woman a companionship necessary to make him de sire to be In her company. There Is absolutely no occasion for bd breath in either men or wonnn. Charcoal, ths strongest absorbent known, when take.i Into the stomach, will prevent this repug nant tendency or affliction. Stuart's Charcoal Losenges are sold in tremendous qjaniltles all over America and Canada. They- cure and have cured all forma of bad breath. A single box will convince you of this fact. One should eat some of these losenges after eich meal and upon retlilng. You might eat fllty of them without harm. They are not medicine, but lure willow charcoal mixed with sweet honey to make them palatable and com pressed Into a losenge to preserve thalr peculiar and lasting strength. The next time you wish to go Into com pany and don't want your foul breath to humiliate you, eat several of Btuart's Char coal Losenges and your breath w.ll be pure and sweet. Every druggist carries them, piles 25 rents, or s?nd ua your name and address and we will send you a trltl package by mail free. Address F. A. Stuart Co., SjO Stuart Bkrg., Marshall, Mich.
