Real Estate to Sell
\\ c don't ask for a listing. Our experience has taught
us what a handicap it is to the owner to list his property
with REAL ESTATE AGENTS on time contracts.
When the property is listed and if the owner sells the
property himself he must pay the commission to the
agent. We only ask that you tell us where the property
is located and how much you want for it. Our large list
of clients enable us to dispose of it very quickly and you
still have the privilege of selling it yourself without pay

Says State Firemen's Presi
dent Has Had Position
Long Enough
Lancaster, Pa., Oct. 8. —The for
tieth annual convention of the Penn
sylvania State Firemen's Association
is in progress here with firemen
from every section of the Common
wealth in attendance. Interest cen
ters chiefly in the contest for the
presidency of the organization be
tween Judge Eugene C. Bonniwell, of
Philadelphia, and Howard O. Hol
stein, of Harrisburg. Judge Bonni
well h'as been president for five
years and is out for another term.
Holstein said yesterdhy It was
time for Judge Bonniwell to step
down in favor of a new man. "Five
straight terms he has had the olflce
and I believe it is Ume to eliminate
this perpetual office holding. The
firemen of the central part of the
State are with me. While we may
not win this year, the next election
will tell a different tale." Holstein
is vice president of the organization.
Judge Bonniwell contented him
self by saying he was sorry Hol
stein was antagonistic to his former
associates. In his address to the
firemen yesterday Judge Bonniwell
said: "There is a double duty for
every fireman in the State of Penn
sylvania to perform. First to guard
against physicul conflagration, as
patriotic firemen always in public
service, and then to guard against
the more insidious and infinitely
more dangerous conflagration of the
enemies of law, of order and of
Christianity, who are seeking to Bub
vert our unparalleled State."

mal would come to his corn field
late at nights and feed and that she
had ruined a considerable portion

#As our boys "came march
ing home," they brought a cer
tain red-blooded doctrine, and
showed, us the glory of a perfect
body. They will show us how
to "keep fit," even if we have
passed middle life and are be
yond the athletic stage. For
the tired business man, the
man who feels the daily grind
and the nightly fag, has meager
appetite, headaches, nerves
unstrung, is gloomy, ending in
a soggy brain, try the right

Before breakfast take hot
water, and occasionally castor
oil or a pleasant laxative made
up of May-apple, aloin, jalap, and sold by all druggists as
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
As Prof. Strauss says, "The excretion of uric acid we
are able to effect by exciting diuresis." Drink copiously of
soft rain or distilled water, six or eight glasses per day, hot
water before meals, and obtain Anuric Tablets, double
strength, for [6O cts., at the nearest drug store and take
them three times a day. If you want a trial package send
10 cents to Dr. Pierce's Invalids' Hotel, Buffalo, N. Y.
"Anuric" (anti-uric-acid) is the recent discovery of
Dr. Pierce and is much more potent than lithia, for it will
dissolve uric acid as hot tea dissolves sugar.

workers have thrown an obstacle it
the path of the contractor. With
only enough steel expansion joints
on hand to last a few days and no
hope of getting more to place every
20 feet between the blocks of con
crete, it looks as if the work would
Ibe tied up indefinitely.
