State Industrial Board Taking Up
Many Matters For Early
Over a dozen hearings will probably
be held by the State Industrial Board
in the next six weeks so that employ
ers and employes in various lines of
industry may have an opportunity
to discuss rules proposed for the
bringing about of safety in textile,
wood-working, machinery, baking, ci
gar making and other plants and in
electric power plants and in small the
aters. The dates for the hearings will
be set very soon and the results of
reports made by voluntary commit
tees for safety will be made public.
The State board at its session here
yesterday heard of efforts being made
by a score or more of voluntary com
mittees in various industries to frame
rules which would bring about safer
conditions and in line with what cas
ualty companies have been urging.
Only a Few Days
and Pimples Go!
All Skin Eruptions Disappear and
Complexion Made Clearer
Than Can Any Face
Cream Ever Known
Never before has such a powerful
effective pimple eradicator, skin and
face purifier and blood cleanser been
known as Obbac, which contains a
tropical herb not heretofore commonly
known to produce remarkable purifying
results on the blood.
( Obbac is a simple, safe, internal rem
edy, which does wonders in clearing
| tlio complexion as no face cream or
other face treatment can ever do. Re-
I suits in a few days are striking. It Is
! exceedingly pleasant to take. Children
take it willingly. All pimples, muddi
! ness, sallowness, bolls, carbuncles and
| skin eruptions quickly disappear. It
| has also a very beneficial effect on the
digestion and is a splendid tonic.
This simple remedy should be in
every home. A 50-cent bottle of the
concentrated Obbac Is mixed at home in
a few moments with water and a little
sugar to suit the taste and this makes
two pints of the most effective blood
| cleanser ever known, to be used by
every member of the family. A 50-
cerit bottle makes $2.50 worth of this
simple remedy, enough for a family
supply, and you save $2.
Obbac is guaranteed absolutely to
satisfy or your money is refunded
cheerfully. Get a 50-cent bottle of con
centrated Obbac from your druggist
or he will gladly get it for you. If not,
send to the Obbac Co., 1130 Commercial
Bldg., Chicago. 111.

"Just look at the way that corn

pry off of your toe. It's easy to apply
"GETS-IT" —one, two, three, and It's
done! The corn begins to shrivel, away
she goes, surely, absolutely. A few
drops will do It. "GETS-IT" never
makes toes red and raw. Corn pains
go! It means the. end of cutting and
gouging of corns, the end of sticky
plasters that don't work anyhow, the
end of salves that eat up your toes,
no more "harness," or fussing. Try
"GETS-IT," the new, sure way, for

The pretty sister consented and they

You will be surprised to learn how
little it costs to spend two weeks or
more in Colorado. I have corrected
many wrong impressions about Colo
rado's Hotels and Boarding Houses and
my road, "The Burlington," (C. B. & Q.
R. R.) now gets out a booklet show
ing how reasonably and pleasantly
one can spend a vacation in Colorado.
"I would love to go to Colorado on
my vacation this summer, but the
Hotel prices are so high"—used to be
the expression of many. Five minutes'
talk convinced them otherwise. Colo
rado has her share of elaborate Hotels,
but Colorado lias lots of comfortable
boarding places whero the rates are as
low as SB.OO a week—clean surround
ings, and wholesome appetizing fare.
I would like to send you a copy of
our booklet. It will give you an en

Hotel expenses, a complete list of
Hotels and boarding houses, their loca

and other information. In addition, it
