But what caused the most severe suffering was the dreadful rheumatism which had an awful hold on me before I realized it. My arm. and hand became so stiff and sore and my neck and shoulders were terribly affected. It was hard for me to walk and for over a, year I had been unable to work and was confined to bed a great part of the time. Finally I was persuaded to give Gly-Cas a. trial and I found it .wonderful. "I have only completed my third box of this new remedy and I am like a new man." he continued. "That dreadful rheumatism has practically gone entirely, my stomach has been regulated and my bowels no longer trouble me. My entire body from head to foot is better in every way, walk with ease, do as I please and cannot praise this new remedy calf enough."

EXPLAINS NO PAIN DENTAL FORMULA Dr. Hartrnan Tells of Years He Spent in Research Before Discovery. CHICAGO, Jan. 30. --Dr. Leroy L. Hartman of New York, discoverer of a chemical formula which he believes will banish pain in dentistry, is in Chicago to instruct dentists of this area in the use of his discovery. Dr. Hartman, a professor of dental surgery at Columbia university, was graduated from the dental school of Northwestern university in 1913. Grinning happily over the reception given by the dental profession to the "Hartman solution," he recalled some of the episodes of his 20 year search for the ideal pain killer. Nearly Succeeded Before. ''J almost stumbled on to the solution 20 years ago, as a matter of fact, but coming close doesn't count very much." Dr. Hartman said. "And now, it's something of a letdown, to realize that the job is done after years of arduous work." Declaring he had declined offers of large sums from pharmaceutical houses for exclusive rights to patents on the formula, Dr. Hartman added; "It wag long ago in my search that I decided that I would give to the world the formula I was sure I would find." Dr. Hartmau preferred, he said, ti have the solution available, as it IB now. "at 60 cents a half-ounce bottle, enough for 200 applications." "Could Hardly Believe It." "About two years ago I neared jealization of my Hopes. My formula was worked out on paper as it now stands, and the very first application produced perfect results. I could hardly believe it was true, even after 200 experimental applications turned out the same way. "On about the 20lst application, I failed to get the right results. I worried. I couldn't sleep. And then, I found that this failure was merely due to the evaporation of one of the HOTEL SHERMAN A nnounces SPRING MARKET I DRIVE YOUR CAR RIGHT INTO HOTEL SHERMN witt GEORGE OLSEN s ETHEL SHUTTA end the ICE SHOW SKATING Two Weeks - Feb. 3" to /5 TM UNDER AUSPICES OF CHICAGO ASSOCIATION OF COMMERCE Be sure TO come -- and stop at HOTEL SHERMAN BEST HOTEL VALUE IN CHICAGO 1700 POOMS 1700 BATHS from' OF THE ingredients from a glass-stoppered bottle." The gray-haired professor, wearing a dark suit, white shirt, and plain black lie, seemed to be making an effort to keep his joy within bounds as he talked. "Ace'iised as Hypnotist." "After I had the formula. I had n lot of. fun," he said. "I carried it in my pocket. None of my colleagues knew what it waa. When a patient was in pain, I'd pull it out. dip a bit of cotton in it. and place the cotton on the tooth. They called it 'magic water.' It was fun, better than being a parlor magician! "The first time I used it on a child, a little girl whose pain promptly vanished, I was accused of employing hypnotism!" Officers of the Chicago Dental society, under whose auspices Dr. Hartman addressed 2,500 dentists at the Stevens hotel last night, hailed the formula as opening an entirely new and brighter chapter in the battle against pain. Opening New Era. So simple, 30 cheap, and so effective, is the Hartman solution, they said, that it signalizes a better era in dental health. A warning against hom* use of the solution as "toothache drops" was sounded by Dr. Hartman and the dental society. Application by other than a member of the profession is apt to result in severe burna to gums or tongue, they said. Real Estate Transfers Tyler, Glenn A. et al to Simon B.

HITS ENEMIES OF SOCIAL SECURITY Miss Roche, Treasury Aide, Talks to United Mine Workers. WASHINGTON, Jan. 30. f.T Miss Josephine Roche, assistant secretary of the treasury, told the United Mine Workers' convention today the fight against the social security program in the name of "liberty" was a "travesty on justice." "It brings to mind," she said, "the words of that great French woman, Madame Rolajide, on the steps of the gillotine. 'Oh liberty, what crimes are committed in thy name!' "Unless there is economic security for the great mass as well as for the few, then our liberty is lit tie less than a mockery." Applause nnd Cheers. Prolonged applause and cheers greeted a plea for President Roosevelt's re-election from Representative Boland (D-Pa) who preceded Miss Roche on the platform. "You owe it to your future generations to return this man to office," Boland said. "I beg- of you to go back to your states and carry that message to your people." John L. Lewis, union president, announced to the convention that anthracite wage negotiations would start Feb. 24 in New York. The present agreement expires March 31. The miners will ask a 30 hom week and higher pay ir. the Pennsylvania coal fields. Seek SO Hmir »rjf. The miners had decided to seek a 30 hour work week and higher pay in the Pennsylvania hard coal fields. The operators were understood to be ready to demand reduced rates because of the decrease in their business during: the last five years. Ray Edmundson, Illinois district president, told reporters the bituminous coal commission had dismissed-the petition of the progressive miners of America, a rival union in Illinois, to remove him from the Illinois district board set up by the Guffey act and to replace him with a progressive. The coal control act provides t h a t each district board should have one representative of the miners' union having a majority of the employes in that district. * Anuiispn l« President. DECORAH.

These chains cut the cost of safety by doubling the mileage. They increase your margin of safety by stopping in much less distance. AAA Contest Board Official Test No. 3143 shows that a car with Weed American Bar-Reinforced Tire Chains on rear wheels stopped in 45.8% less distance than when no chains were used, and in 66.8% less distance when chains were used on all four tires. These chains also give you the necessary traction to plow through drifts which might otherwise stall your car for hours.

For snow wets tires and wet rubber always slips. (Try rubbing a dry eraser over glass. Then wet the rubber and feel it slide or skid.) That is why you need steel tire chains for safe driving in snow, sleet or mud. Because steel tire chains grip like cleats on a tractor wheel.
