The Kind You Have Always Bought.
THI8 is the caution applied to the publlo announcement of Castoria that
has been manufactured under the supervision of ('litis. 11. Fletcher for
over 80 years—the genuine Castoria. We respectfully call the attention
of fathers aud niothors when purchasing Castoria to see that the wrapper bears
his signature in black. When the wrapper is removed the same signature ap-
pears on both sides of the bottle in red. Parents who have used Castoria for
theis little ones in the past years need no warning against counterfeits and
imitations, but oi|r present duty is to call the attention of the younger gener-
ation to tho great Tlanger of introducing into their families spurious medicines.

nefarious business of putting i^p and selling all sorts of substitutes, or what
should more pro|>orly bo termed counterfeits, for medicinal preparations not
only for adults, but worse yet, for children's medicines. It therefore devolve
on the mother to scrutinize closely what sho gives her child. Adults can do
that for themselves, but the child has to rely on
tho mother's watchfulness.

A writer gives a little sketch of

how bo came across a white boy, Bomo
fourteen years old, and a group of raw
natives claying a game. Thoy were

shotgun at a bottle on tho top of a

a bottle ho received a "tickey" (a
threepenny bit) from the natives.
Whon a native hit it bo received three

WAD REAL IDEA OF ECONOMY
Jap Explains How Family Was En-
abled to Use One Fan Two or
Among the Japanese economy is
held to be a high virtue. Two old mi
sere of Tokyo were one day discussing
ways and means of saving.
"I manage to make a fan last about
twenty years," said one, "and this is
my system: I don't wastefully open
the whole fan and wave it carelessly.
I open only one section at a time.
That Is good for about a year. Then
I open the next, and so on until the
fan Is eventually used up."
"Tventy years for a good fan!" ex-
claimed the other. "What sinful ex-
travagance! In my family we use a
fun for two or three generations, and
this Ih how we do it: We open the
whole fan, but we don't wear it out
by waving It. Oh, no! We hold It
still, like this, under our nose, and
wave our face!"—Everybody's.
Warrior of Today.
Oeorge Wharton Pepper said at a
luncheon at the Plattsburg training
camp for officers:
"The methods of warfare have
changed enormously in the past year.
The sword, for example, Is no longer
carried. The sword has quite disap-
peared from war.
"A story comes from the Argonne
about a French chasseur who took a
German officer prisoner. The chasseur,
a hoy. a tyro, said to the officer:
"'Give up your sword.'"
"But the officer shook his head and
" 'I have no sword to give up. But
won't my vitriol spray, my oil projec-
tor or my gas cylinder do as well?'"
I Guarantee "Dodson's Liver Tone" Will Give You the Best Liver
and Bowel Cleansing You Ever Had—Don't Lose a Day's Work!
Just as He Had Said.
"You remember selling me some
hair-restorer when I called the other
day to get shaved, you hoary-headed
old thief?" roared the indignant cus-
tomer. "You sold it under false pre-
tences, sir. You said it would restore
my head to its original condition."
"Well, didn't it work?" asked the
"Work? No. It's taken off what lit-
tle hair I used to have, and I am as
bald as tho pavement now "
"That's quite right, sir. No false
pretence about that. I said it would
restore your head Its original condi-
tion, and you know, sir, most of us
are born bald."
She was looking for an apartment.
"It must be in a first class neigh-
borhood," she said, "and it must have
ten large rooms, three baths and all
modern improvements, and 1 won't pay
a cent over $40 a month."
"I know the very place you're look-
ing for," replied the agent, "but If you
want to find out how to get there
you'll have to consult a clergyman."

NOT AS HE EXPRESSED THEM
Teamster's Words Would Have Re-
quired Adjustment Before Their
Use in the Pulpit.
A man was brought before a police
court charged with abusing his team
and using loud and profane language
on the street. One of the witnesses
was a pious old darky, who was sub-
mitted to a short cross-examination.
Did the defendant use improper
language while he was beating his
horses?" asked the lawyer.
"Well, he talk mighty loud, suh."
"Did he Indulge in profanity?"
The witness seemed puzzled. The
lawyer put the question in another
"What I mean, Uncle Aus, is—did
he use words that would be proper for
your minister to use in a sermon?"
"Oh, yes suh," the old man replied
with a grin that revealed the full
width of his Immense mouth; "but
dey'd have to be 'ranged diit'runt."—

will clean your sluggish liver better
than nasty calomel; it won't make you

and straighten you up by morning or

"I WANT TO WARN YOU AGAINST THE CRAZE PEOPLE
IN THIS COUNTRY HAVE FOR WHITE FLOUR. THE
WHITEST FLOUR IS NOT THE BEST; IT IS NOT THE
PUREST; IT IS ONLY THE DEAREST, AND WHEN YOU
BUY IT YOU BUY LOOKS AND NOT NOURISHMENT. IN
ORDER TO MAKE IT WHITE, SOME OF THE MOST NOUR-
ISHING AND ESSENTIAL COMPONENTS OF THE NATURAL
WHEAT HAVE BEEN TAKEN AWAY."
These "nourishing and essential components" are the priceless mineral phosphates of the
grain, known as the "tissue salts," indispensable for perfect health of body, brain and nerves.
Everywhere food scientists and physicians are sounding a like note of warning, for a host
of ills is following the pernicious practise of casting out these elements in the milling process,
and that, simply to make the flour look white and pretty. Neurasthenia, anemia, Bright's disease,
constipation, rickets, and a lowered resistance against disease in general, are some of these ills.
More and more thinking people are waking up to this evil. There's a way out.

components"—the mineral elements. This splendid food was devised years ago to supply
this very lack in ordinery food and fortify the system against the onslaughts of disease. It does
it wonderfully well.
