MEAT CAUSE OF
Take a Glass of Salts If Your Back
Hurts or Bladder Bothers—Meat
Forms Uric Acid
If*you must have your meat every
day, eat it, but flush your kidneys with
salts occasionally, says a noted author
ity who tells us that meat forms urie
acid which almost paralyzes ihe kid
ueys in their efforts to expel it from
the blood. They become sluggish and
weaken, then you sifffer with a dull
misery in the kidney region, sharp pains
in the back or sick headache, dizziness,
your stomach sours, tongue is coated'
and when the weather is bad you have
rheumatic twinges The nr'ine gets
cloudy, full of sediment, the channels
often get sore and irritated, obliging
you to seek relief two or three times
during the night.
To neutralize these irritating acids,
to cleanse the kidneys and flush off the
body's urinous waste get four ounces of
.Tad Salts from any pharmacy here;
take a tablespoonful in a glass of water
before breakfast fer a few .days and
your kidneys will then fine. This
famous salts is made from the acid of
grapes and lemon juice, combined with
lithia, and has been used for genera
tions to flush and stimulate sluggish
kidneys, also to neutralize the acids in
urine, so it no longer irritates, thus
ending bladder weakness.
f Jad Salts is inexpensive; eannot in
jure, and makes a delightful efferves
cent lithia-water drink.—Adv.

Proposed in Third Class
City Bill Introduced
by Senator ClarkLast
Mayor's Bight to Suspend Delinquent
Policemen Is Clearly Defined in
Measure —City Solicitor's Tenure of
Office Extended to Pour Years
Radical changes are made in the bill
relating to cities of the third class in
troduced in the -Senate last night by
Senator Clark, of Erie, the fatheT of
the commission form of government
bill now governing Harrisburg and
other cities. The changes proposed to
be made in his bill by Senator
Clark embrace almost every thing from
permitting the Mayor to succeed him
self to lengthening the terms of >eity
commissioners to four years, and many
other matters at present engrossing the
attention of cities of the third class.
The following is a synopsis of the new
Clark bill which is very lengthy:
"When a c-ity is enlarged by taking
in territory from a town, township, or
borough the law is changed so that in
debtedness of the annexed territory
and the city contracted prior to an
nexation shall be paid by the enlarged
city and the 'taxes shall be uniform
throughout the territorial limits of the
whole city' and the levying of separate
rate* of taxation prohibited."
-■ An amendment is offered providing
that "Council shall, by ordinance, pro
vide for and regulate the award of all
contracts, the manner of hiring and
discharge of employes and laborers, and
for the fixing of their salaries or com
pensation when not already fixed by
ordinance, the purchase of all necessary
materials and supplies, and the sale ot
The present law provides that print
ing, advertising and work to be done,
shall be performed under contract to the
lowest responsible bidder. This is
The law relating to bribery is limit
ed to members of council and the pro
posed change enlarges it so as to in
clude city officer <jr employe."
As to License Pees
The article authorizing cities to levy
and collect a license tax is enlarged and
includes "pawnbrokers, trading stamp
or premium companies or dealers, ware
houses or storage houses or places,
wholesale meat dealers, garages ami
provision made that the tax assessed
'shall be in addition to all other taxes
levied or collected by the city, county
Under the law as it now is, council
must provide for an equitaible reduction
in the amount to be assessed for an im
provement against a lot, that is pecu
liar or pointed in shape an amendment
is provided to make this discretionary
It is proposed to enlarge the cor
porate powers of a municipality by
authorizing, in addition to what is al
ready provided, the arrest and commit
ment "of suspicious persons found in
any part of the city who can give no
pe»sonal account of themselves."
It is also proposed that councils shall
elect or appoint a "sealer or inspector
of weights and measures and prescribe
his term, compensation ami duties."
It is further proposed to add to the
corporate powers the authority to "pro
vide anil enforce general market regu
lations and to contract, maintain and
manage municipal boat houses and bath
houses, to purchase playgrounds, to
regulate and control the production and
emission of smoke from any chimney,
locomotive, smoke stack or other
One noticeable proposed amendment
is the giving to a city "the exeTclse
of full and complete powers of local
self-government." It is provided too,
that the Mayor and members of the
council shall serve for a term of four
years from the first Monday in^Janu
ary next succeeding their respective
elections and shall each be eligible to
re-election and all Majors elected in
1911 to serve until the first Monday
of January, 1916, and all other Mayors
and councilmen now in office to serve

about 50 cents a "'large bottle at drug

While wispy, gray, faded hair is not
sinful, we all desire to retain our youth

darkening your hair with Wyeth's Sage

does so naturally, so evenly. You just
dampen a spoitge or soft Ij'nush with it
and draw this through your hair, taking
one small strand at a time; by morning
all grajt hairs have disappeared, and,
after another application or two, your
hair becomes beautifully dark, glossy,

Changes in Terms of Office
An amendment would extend the
rate of commitment now thirty days
for a dissolute or disorderly person to
ninety days. A provision of existing
law which has caused some controversy
with reference to the control of the
police force by the Mayor or by coun
cil has been amended to read as fol
'"The Mayor shaJl exercise a constant
supervision and control over their con
duct and hear and determine all coin
plaints against them in the discharge
their duties" and there is added the
following: "And upon finding any such
complaint well founded shall siAiniit his
report of all to couneiimen for its ac
tion and in the meantime, pending ac
tion of the council, ttae Mayor shall
have the power to suspend such police
men from duty without pay."
The controller's report to council in
stead of being made in January, is
fixed at March and a detailed state
ment of receipts, expenditures and li
abilities, instead of being presented in
January shall be presented in Deeem
ber, and to the present power of super
intendent of finance there is proposed
to add the following:
"The superintendents of accounts
and finance shall have authority to ad
minister oaths, or aftirmations, in re
lation to any matter touching the
authentication of every account with,
or claim or demand against the city,
bu.t shall not be entitled to receive any
fee therefor. He shall also have power
to appoint a deputy who shall also have
power to administer oaths or aftirma
tions in all matters relating to the af
fairs of eaid office, but the said super
intendent shall, in all cases be respon
sible and liable for the actions and
conduct of the said deputy."
It is proposed to extend the term of
the city solicitor to four instead of two
years, and likewise of the city engineer
and also the city clerks.
