S;. TOTING WINTER FUEL Only Men Who Charge Increased Rates Permitted to Accompany Wagons. It will cost you 50 per cnt more to have your coal put in the cellar this year than It did last winter. A combine has been formed by the men who do this work. It has not yet risen to the dignity of a union, but there Is a definite trade agreement. The coal heavers have enllste- the services of the wagon drivers, who ara expected to aid in enforcing the scale. Heretofore the price paid for putting in coal has been 1 cent a bushel. The new scale is 1 cents a bushel. Thus it now costs $1.50 to put i,j bushels of soft coal as compared with SI last year, and the handling of a ton of hard coal Is advanced from "25 cents to 37'4 cents. Increased co3t of living is the reason given for the advance. Coal heavers wait at the coal yards and accompany the loads as they go to their destination. I'nder the agreement with the drivers only heavers who charge the new scale are permitted tg accompany wagons.

SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE What is Causing the Increase tarrh in St. Louis? of Ca- In spite of the best effort oi medical men, catarrhal troubles are increasing not only in St. Louis, but ali over the country. Catarrh is a germ disease, and to cure it germ life in tbe breathing organs should be destroyed, and to do this no other treatment has such positive and benefkal action os Hyomei. When the mucous membrane is irritated and raw and the tissues weak ened, there is cn ideal lodging place! tor catarrhal germs. Breathe Hyomei j and see how quickly it soothes the membranes, vitalizes the tissues and destroys all the disease germs, rendering catarrh no longer possible. i There is no dantrerous stomach drugging when liyomci is lined; no tablets or ljfrunl mixtures, whereby the digestion l often destroyed and intestinal troubles added to the horrors of catarrh. Breathed through the neat pocket inhaler that conies with every Hyomei outfit, the healing balsams penetrate to the most remote air cells of the throat, nose and lungs, destroying the. catarrhal germs so that quick recovery follows. We positively guarantee Hyomi. for should you buy a complete outfit, price $1.00, and be dissatisfied witu results your money will be refunded. Hyomei i sold by druggists every--vhere.
