Our boys are defending this country
on the high seas and on the land. Our
own defense against a common enemy
Is to keep the system clean by ridding
the body of the toxins, or poisons, which
are bred In the Intestines. When you
feel tired, sleepy, headachy, when your
breath Is offensive, or pimples appear
on the face and neck, it is time to recog-
nize the danger and protect your bodily
health by taking something for the liver
such as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
The machinery of the body needs to
be oiled, kept In good condition, Just as
the guns or machinery of a ship. Why
should a human person neglect his own
machinery more than that of his auto-
mobile or his guns? Yet most people
do neglect themselves. Their tongue
has a dark brown color, skin sallow,
breath bad, yet they fail to see that
their machinery needs attention.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets have
been known for nearly half a century.
They are made of May-apple, leaves of
uloe and jalap, made into a tiny pellet
and coated with sugar. They are stand-
ard and efficacious. You can obtain
them at any drug store *n vials for
twenty-five cents. Ask for Dr. Pierce's

best-selling books ever produced, which
has run through hundreds of editions, ,
in all civilized languages, has been sen- ;

years, and'since the great war began ,
has been in greater demand than ever.

Of the personality of the man who
achieved this great distinction very
little Is recalled today, in spite of the
vital Influence of his work In the pres-
ent development of his country.
He was born In • the old shipping
town of Salem, Mass., in 1773. His
people were poor, and he was obliged
to leave school when but twelve, to
serve in a ship chandler's shop.
There, while selling rope and niarlin-
splkes, the youth fell in with men from
f.,r voyages. One was an oltl British
sailor, who taught the lad navigation.

It chanced that about this time a
privateer came Into Salem with the
booty of a cruise that included a
library of philosophical works, the
property of Dr. Richard Kirwan, an
Irish scientist, taken from a freighter
captured off the Irish coast.
The books were sold at auction, anil
bought by Salem citizens as the nucleus
of a library. Young Bowdltch had ac-
cess to them, rend them eagerly, and
copied most of them for further use.
When twenty-two, Bowdltch made
his first voyage to sea, as captain s
clerk on a Salem ship. He sailed nine
years in all, one voyage being on the
