Three of the largest ranchers, own

Opportunity to Comply Given.
Mayor Albee said last night that he
will instruct the police bureau to be
reasonable with the drivers.. No ar
rests will bo made until all drivers
have had an opportunity to get their
examinations and have permits issued.
Inasmuch as the inspection of each car
and the examination of each driver
takes considerable time, it is said to
be impossible to put all the Jitneys
through the test in less than possibly
two or three weeks.
It is probable a time will be set
when all drivers must have permits.
This will be set later, when it is seen
how rapidly the machines and drivers
can be put through the tests.
As to the safety features of the ordi
nance, these will be put into effect at
once. The machines will be prohibited
from overloading and will have to have
interior lights and other safeguards.
Sealing Capacity Limit Kept.
The Jitney, under the provisions of
the ordinance, may not carry more
than the registered seating capacity.
No more than one passenger may ride
in the seat with the driver, and no
passengers are permitted to ride on the
running-board or steps. A five-passenger
car may carry five passengers,
including the driver, according to the
terms of the ordinance.
Stops to take on or let off passen
gers may be made only on the near side
of street intersections. This is a safe
ty provision, the near side being the
opposite to that on which the street
cars stop. Commissioner Daly has pre

part of the ordinance, but they have
not been adopted by the Council as
So far 96 Jitney drivers have ap

If you are accustomed t wake up
with a coated tongue, foul breath or
a dull, dizzy headache, or, if your meals

have a real surprise awaiting you.
Tomorrow morning, immediately upon

a teaspoonful of limestone phosphate
in It. This is Intended to first neutral

intestines all the indigestible waste,
poisons, sour bile and toxins, thus
cleansing, sweetening and purifying
the entire alimentary canal.
Those subject, to sick headaches,
backache, bilious attacks, constipation
or anv form of stomach trouble, are
urged to get a quarter pound of lime
stone phosphate from tne arug swro
and begin enjoyinc: this morning in
side-bath. It is said that men ana
women who try this become enthusi

splendid health measure, for it is more
Important to keep clean ana pure on
the ineirte than mi the outside, because
the skin pores do not absorb impuri
ties into the blood, causing oiaease,
while the bowel pores do.
The principle of bathing inside Is
not new, as millions of people practice
it. Just as hot water and soap cleanse,
purify and freshen the skin, so hot
water and a teaspoonful of limestone
phosphate act on the stomach, liver,
kidneys and bowels. Limestone phos
phate is an inexpensive white powder,
and almost tasteless. Adv.
