MISS FLORENCE KENAH.
Miss Florence E. Kenah, 434 Maria street, Ottawa, Ont., writes:
"A few months ago I caught a severe cold, which Mettled oa my lung* and re-
mained then bo persistently that i became alarmed. i took medicine without
benefit, umtil my digestive organs became upset, and my bead and back began
to ache severely and frequently.

I was ready to try anything. It brought me blessed relief at once, and I felt
that I bad the right medicine at last Within three weeks I was completely

Pe-ru-na for Colds and Catarrh.
The following interesting letter gives
one young woman's experience with
Miss Rose Gerbing, a popular society
woman of Crown Point, Ind., writes:
"Recently I took a long drive in the
country, and being too thinly clad 1
caught a bad cold which settled on my
lungs, and which I conld not seem to
skake off. I had heard a great deal of
Peruna for colds and catarrh and I
bought a bottle to try. I am pleased
that I did, for it brought speedy relief.
It only took about two bottles, and I
consider this money well spent.

not only advise its use to my friends,
give to those without the means to buy
and have noticed without exception
that it has brought about a speedy cure

Pe-ru-na Contains No Narcotics.
One reason why Peruna has found
permanent use in so many homes is that
it contains no narcotic of any kind.
Peruna is perfectly harmless. It can
be used any length of time without ac
quiring a drug habit. Peruna does not
produce temporary results. It Is perma
nent in its effect.
It has no bad effect upon the system,
and gradually eliminates catarrh by re-
moving the cause of catarrh. There are
a multitude of homes where Peruna has
been used off and on for twenty years.
Such a thing could not be possible if

How Kipling Worka
Kipling'} method cf work present*
a direct antheuls to l lifcl of the Ger-
man scholar. The English icholcr
•pends only about ten hours a day at
his desk, but )e Is a systematic work-
er, going about his writing at thy
same time every morning. A friend
of the author who bas seen him late-
ly says he has grown very thin, and
looks much more than the thirty-nine
years that stand to his account. It
would seem that he I'as never quite
recovered from his serious illness In
New York, nnd that the death of his
daughter deepened his spirituality.
Kipling's fayorite form of recreation
Is motoring, and he takes a boyish de-
light In rediscovering England with
his hand on the brake. An American
author who met him last summer
warned him to be careful not to let
his enthusiasm make him run fiis ma-
chine off the Island.
Not the Country for Him.
"Bob" Burdette, the preacher-humor
1st of Los Angeles, tells a story of i
rich contractor from the East wh<
was sojourning in California, anc
who had great difficulty in twisting th«
Spanish names of places around hi!
Hibernian tongue. In speaking ol
San Jose, Mojave, Vallejo and othei
towns which he had visited, he gavt
the literal pronunciation, instead o;
sounding the Spanish "J" like "h.'
Mr. Bwrdette attempted to explain
but waa interrupted by the Irlshmao
who exclaimed explosively:
"Ye have a foine climate out here
and ye have flowers an' fruit galore:
but damn the country, say 1, when
dey spell hickory with a 'j'!"—Nev
Found the Laziest Man.
During the civil war a captain o
a company which had sixty men ii
its ranks, none of whom were as ener
getic as the officer thought the;
should be, hit upon a plan which hi
believed would cure their habits o
laziness. One morning, after roll call
the captain, addressing his command
"I have a nice, easy job for the lazl
est man In the company. Will th<
laziest man step to the front?"
Instantly fifty-nine men each tool
a step forward.
"Why didn't you step to the front?
inquired the commander of the on<
man who did not come.
"I was too lazy," replied the so)
The Quality of Ambiguity.
Neither comic opera jokes nor fa
bles in slang form any part of Georgi
Acle's ordinary conversation. He is
however, rather given to indulging it
a quality of humor that is unlnten
tionally sarcastic. In a dlscussioi
of the fine meaning of words thi
other day he said:
"Ambiguity is a word I alwayi
liked. Its real meaning is a quailtj
that is deemed essentially necessar;
to the clear understanding of diplo
matic writings, Japanese war reports
acts of Congress and law proceed

Wonderful Change In a Night—In a
Month Face Was Clear as Ever
—Another Cure by Cutlcura.
"I had eczema on the face for flvo
months, during which time I was In
the care of physicians. My face was
so disfigured I could not go out. and It
was going from bad to worse. A
friend recommended Cutlcura. The
first night after I washed my face
with Cutlcura Soap, and used Cutlcura
Ointment and Resolvent, It changed
wonderfully. From that day I was
able to go out, and In a month the
treatment had removed all scales and
scabs, and my face was as clear as
ever. (Signed) T. J. Soth, 317 Stagg
Street, Brooklyn. N. Y."
An English Joke
"Of course, you know how many
minutes there are to an hour," said
a lawyer to a witness In an English
court. "Well," said the witness, after
pondering for a while, "let's hear your
version of it."
It's too suggestive if the hangman
walks with a swing.
Revival of Dickens.
More than 200,000 copies of Dick
fns' various books were sold in Eng
land du*ng the month of Decembei
last, which would seem to indicati
that the novelist holds his popularitj
well. Another sign of his popularity
Is the starting in I>ondon of a new
magazine, the Dickensian, to be edit-
ed by Mr. B. W. Matz, and published
by "The Dickens Fellowship"—a so-
ciety which now numbers more than
Girls Go Bareheaded.
The coeds of the University of Cali-
fornia decided recently to go bare-

A Tribute to Weather Conditions
In Western Canada.
During tho early portion of Fcbru
ary, of this year, the middle and
Western States suffered severely with
the Intense cold and winter's storms
Trains were delayed, cattle suffered
and there was much general hardship
While this was the case, throughout
Western Canada, now attracting so
much attention, the weather was per-
One correspondent writes, "We are
enjoying most beautiful weather, the
gentlemen are going to church with-
out top coats, while the ladles require
no heavier outer clothing than that
afforded by light jackets. In contrast
with this it is interesting to read in a
St Paul paper of 13th February the
following, In double head lines, and
large bold-faced type:
"WARM WAVE WEAK ARCTIC ZONE."
"CALGARY MUCH WARMER THAN ST. PAUL."
"Balmy Breezes are Blowing in Northwestern Cinad?

During the month of January of this
year the number of settlers who went
to Canada was greater than any pre-
vious January. The movement north-
ward Is Increasing wonderfully.
The vacant lands of Western Can-
ada are rapidly filling with an excel-
lent class of people. The Government
Agents located at different points in
tho States, whose duty It is to direct
settlers, are busier than ever. They
have arranged for special excursions
during the months of March nnd
April, and will bo pleased to give in-
tending settlers any desired Informa-
THE liver is the great filtering ap-
paratus of the alimentative, or
digeative, system. It filters the
poiaon-Ioaded bile out of the blood.
When the liver lacks active capacity
to do this work, then the bile passes
through into the general circulation
and begins ite poisonous work.
Through the circulation of the blood
it is disseminated throughout the body,
gradually sapping the strength, cloud-
ing the brain, weighing down the ener-
gies, weakening the heart's action, in-
fecting and undermining the system.
Eventually the poison begins to' accu-
mulate at the skin, tlie kidneys, the
bronchial tubes, or the lungs, until at
last it settles and fastens itself at some
point, which location may be far away
Ironi the liver; yet it is stagnation or
congestion of the liver which is tho im-
mediate cause of the whole trouble.
SYMPTOMS OP LIVER COMPLAINT.
Not unfrequently, in liver disease,
the complexion becomes pale and sal-
low, there may be frequent attacks of
bilious or sick headache, bitter taste in
the mouth, tonguo coated white, or cov-
ered with a brown fur, unnatural, dry,
harsh, or sealy condition of the skin,
or branny eruptions, pimples, dark
blotches, and troublesome itching.
There are likely to be " backache
and tired feelings, lassitude and a sense
of debility. There is depression of
spirits and a decided tendency to be
discouraged and despondent. There is
loss or irregularity of appetite, uneasi-
ness in region of the stomach, oppres-
sion, sometimes sour stomach, " heart,
burn," 'nausea and " water - brash,"
flatulency, and acrid eructations; th«
bowels become irregular, usually con-
stipated, and occasionally subject to
diarrhea, attended with colicky pains.
The foregoing symptoms are not all
present in any one case, nor are any
two cases alike in every respect.
The only way to help a disordered
liver is to treat it as it is:—the great,
organic, human lilter. Doctor Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery cleanses and
clears it; invigorates and revitalixea
this most, important organ by its won-
derful alterative power. For bilious-
ness, indigestion, weak stomach, and
kindred ailments, tho "Golden Medical
Discovery " is a most efficient remsdy.

using It I was 60 weak could hardly walk
about the house. Ry the time I had used one
