have cost $8,240 additional to have
built the town mains of steel pipe.
Expenditures and estimates to date
show that building the system of
wood, save half a mile of steel pipe
to be laid on Main street, would
. practically consume all the money
from the bond issue. To have built
a steel distiibution system would
have involved problems the board
could cot well surmount. Besides,
exhaustive investigation of the sub
3 ect has led a large per centage to
i believe the wooden pipe to be

MAKES WEAK WOMEN STRONQ
AND SICK WOMEN WELL.
Forty years ago, Dr. Pierce searched
Nature's laboratory for a remedy with
which to supplant the ignorant and vi
cious methods of treatment, with alco
holic stimulants, then in vogue, and still
too commonly prescribed and advised for
woman's peculiar ailments.
Nature abounds with most efficient rem
edies, and in Lady's Slipper root, Black
Cohosh root, -Unicorn root, Blue Cohosh
root and Golden Seal root, Dr. Pierce
found medicinal properties, which when
extracted and preserved by the use of
chemically pure glycerine, have proven
most potent in making weak women
strong and sick women well: It contains
no alcohol; is not a "patent medicine,"
nor 'a secret one either.
"I was stiff ertng with nervous headache,
pains In the back and dizziness, so that at
times X had to lie down fur hours before I
could raise my head." writes Mrs. Mary M.
Thomas, of 337 Winston Street, Los Angeles.

Publfc concerts owe their Tllrect en
couragement to John Banister, who
had won fame by his playing on the
violin and who succeeded the cele
brated Baltzar as leader of Charles II.'s
L.ind of twenty-four violins. Pepys, In
1 'i entry In his diary for February,
l :i7, tells us the court gossip of the
t'. '.y "how the king's viallin Banister
i.i mad that the king hath a French
i.. m come to be chief of some part of
i'i.i! king's muslque."
T !anlster'3 concerts at the close of the
y ar 1672 were advertised in the Lon-
iv, -n Gazette as follows: "These are to
t re; notice that at Mr. John Banister's
h.ivise' (now called the Mustek School),
over against ; the George... tavern In
White Fryers, the present Monday will
be thnslck performed by excellent mas
ters,". beginning precisely at 4 of the
elock in the afternoon, and every after
noon for th'6 future precisely at the
same hour." -
Four years later oh we read again:
"At the Academy;, in- Little Lincoln's
Inn. Fields win begin the' first part of
the Parley, of.' Instruments', composed
by Mr. John Banister.". ..he admission
was at this time as a rule a shilling.
and these concerts seem to have been
held pretty regularly down to within
short time of Banister's death, which
took place in 1679. Chambers' Journal,
BIRTH OF THE BUS.
Thia Class of Vehicle First Appeared
In Paris In 1662.
'e omnibus appeared in Paris In
16v 3 a "carrosse a cinq sous" (coach
for t."- "jnce halfpenny), by authority
ot Louxj XIV., under the management
of Pascal, the mystic and philosopher.
Whether this eminent thinker originat
ed the Idea is not clear, but there Is no
doubt that his influence assisted in the
establishment of the service under the
auspices of a royal decree.
Later on these earliest omnibuses
ceased to run owing to lack of support,
and did not reappear in Paris until
1827, when Lafltte, the banker, who
was among the largest proprietors,
was credited with originating the re
vived service. ,
The new coaches started to ply In
London on July 4, 1829, when the first
one left Paddlngton for the Bank of
England, and another ran from the
bank to the Yorkshire Stingo, New
toad. These first British busses were
known from the man who organized
them as "Shiilibeers," and the conduc
tors of the first two are said to have
been the sons of British naval officers.
Three horses drew them, and they cap

Always Keeps Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in His House.
"We would not be without Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. It is kept on hand contin
ually in our home," says W. W. Kearney,
editor of the Independent, Lowry City, Mo.
That is just what every family should do.
When kept at hand ready for instant use, a
cold may be checked at the outset and cured
in much less time than after it has become
settled in the system. This remedy is also
without a peer for croup in children, and
will prevent the attack when given as soon
as the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough appears, which can only be
done when the remedy is kept at hand. For
