Calomel Is mcrcury or quicksilver
which causes necrosis of the bones.
Calomel, when It comes into contact
with sour bile crashes Into It, break-

awful nausea and cramping. If you

stomach sour. Just try a spoonful of
harmless Dodson's Liver Tone.

bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone. Take
a Bpoonful tonight and If It doesn't

Is destroying the sale of calomel be-
cause It Is real liver medicine; entire-
ly vegetable, therefore It cannot sali-

Is a true American lad, says the In-
dianapolis News. He knows when a
circus comes to town, and like all other
boys, he will find a way to see the
show. That was why he did not miss
a wild West exhibition that played
Tipton recently. The lad had been
pondering over how he was to get In-
side the "big top," and he was not
greatly encouraged until n big, black
man—-one of the many sons of Ham
with the show—approached him.
"Say, sonny, how big's your dad?"
asked the stranger.
"He's a whopper," promptly replied
the youngster, thinking perhaps the
colored man might have some notion
of ordering him roughly from the

dad's shirts I'll take you In all the

livered one of Mr. Jessup's best shirts

While a traveler was waiting for an
opportunity to show his samples to a
merchant a customer came In and
bought a couple of nightshirts. After-

Philadelphia Lawyer Illustrated "Lead-

The late John G. Johnson, a Phila-
delphia lawyer, was once explaining
to a Jury the natnre and the unfair-
ness of "leading" or guiding questions.
He illustrated his explanation with an
"A young chap and a pretty girl," he
said, "sat on a secluded bench at
Lemon Hill. The girl turned to him
and said earnestly.
" 'You ask me for a kiss. There Is
a language In kisses. A kiss on the
hand denotes chivalrous respect. On
the foreheaf! It denotes a firm and
faithful friendship. On the lips—"
her color rose and she drew a long
breath—"a kiss on the lips denotes all
things. Kiss me, then, once. Ex-
press In one kiss your feeling toward

" 'I don't want to lose her,' he snld
to himself. 'Where Is the best to kiss
her? Hand, forehead, or lips?'
"A mellow whistle interrupted him.
He looked at the girl. Her red mouth
was puckered up In the form of a rose-
bud ; she had pulled down her hat
bo as to hide her forehead completely,
and both hands were thrust up to the
wrists In her pockets."

And Praises Cardui, Which She
Says Pulled Her Through a
Most Dangerous Period.
Mercer, Ky.—"About 15 years ago,"
writes Mrs. W. T. Ball, of this place,
"I began suffering with change of life,
and was suffering very much. , . I
began taking Cardui after having suf-
fered for 3 years, and I was dread-
fully nervous. Hardly felt like doing
ray work. Couldn't sleep well at nights.
However, after several doses of Cardui
I saw an Improvement and In a few
days I could do my work with ease
and In two weeks I was able to walk
six miles and went to the street fair
at Central City and enjoyed myself.
After using two bottles. I got my
natural health and strength and it
pulled me through that most danger-
ous of periods in a woman's life with
no trouble or suffering.
I am now hale and hearty, and was
59 years old the 11th of this month.
I will never cense praising Cardui,
which did me so much good. It also
saved my daughter's life when she had
such a dreadful spell. . . "
Over 40 years In use, Cardui has
proven its efficacy as "the woman's
tonic." If you are weak, and run-
down, and suffer from symptoms of
troubles peculiar to women, give
Cardui a trial.—Adv.

Big Drivs Throughout Nation Coming
Week of October 21-28—How All
Muit Unite to Whip Kaiser
and Bring Peace Again.
Washington.—The food pledge cam- i
palgn Is projected upon broad lines,
but It Is very simple and very plain.
The food administration will mar- j
shul Its whole force of half a million j
campaigners organized for food pledge
week, to promote the second Liberty I
loan. The week of October 21 to 28
has been set for the big drive the food
administration has planned to enroll
all American families for food con-
servation. The Liberty loan cam-
paign will be at Its height at the sami
time. Herbert Hoover, the food ad
mlnlstrator, In a message to the fe<.
eral food administrators, and cam-
paign managers of the food enrollment
campaign, Instructing them to exert
every effort to promote the Liberty
loan, called this a fortunate coinci-
dence, since both are aimed at the
same end and each will supplement the
other. The Liberty lonn, he says, will
enable the government to lend money
to the allies, and the food pledge cam-
paign Is designed to make certain that
there shall be food available to pur-
So simple and so plain that they
have been stated In the compass of a
card—a card that It Is proposed to
hang In every home of the land—n
card (hat Is the "war creed of the
kitchen," because, so closely are the
people In this country linked to the
world war, that one of the phases of
the struggle must be fought out In the
If soldiers are to light, they must
be fed. For the past three years, one
by oue, our allies across the sea have
been taking the men from the farm
and from the factory and sending them
to the tiring line. Each man sent to
the firing line meant one less who
could be relied upon to help produce
the food that "will win the war."
If the laborer Is worthy of his hire,
surely the tighter Is worthy of his
food. That Is a principle universally
accepted by the American public.
However, It is not every product that
can be sent across the sea. Corn will
not serve the need; our allies have
never used it as a food; they have no
mills to grind It; turn It Into meal In
this country and It would spoil before
It could reach a European port. There
are just four classes of products, the
experts say, that we must send to our
allies If our duty to them Is to be dis-
charged ; they need meat, wheat, sugar
and dairy products. We can con-
serve our wheat by increasing our
consumption of other grains. We can
conserve our meat by making a great-
er demand upon the resources of the
fish market. All of these are expedi-
ents known to the American house-
If the United States were an auto-
cratic country there would be no popu-
lar appeal for the conservation of
food. There would be an autocratic
food control. The mailed fist would
rule In the kitchen. Imperial food
decrees would be enforced at the
point of the bayonet. But ours Is not
au autocratic country. Food control
Is In the hands of the people them-
selves, and It Is to the people that
the food administration has appealed
In the food pledge card campaign.
Herbert Hoover has termed this ap-
peal an "unprecedented adventure to
democracy"—an adventure that will
determine whether or not a demo-
cratic form of government is, after
all. fitted to engage In a death grapple
[ with autocracy.
The food pledge week campaign re-
j solves itself Into an effort to secure
as a result of voluntary agreement
pledges Insuring the general support
for the well defined program of food
i conservation. The food pledge cam-
paign represents an effort to induce
as many of the American homes as
j possible to unite In a common policy.
Our wheat reserves can be conserved
If everybody helps. Our meat re-
serves can be conserved If the whole
The American people are asked to
Join together In a common conserva-
tion policy. As evidence that they are
supporting this policy they are asked
to hnng n card denoting membership

tion In their window. In order that
the conservation policy may be under-
stood, the reason for It made plain
and the manner of observing It ren-
dered certain, Instruction cards—"The
War Creed of the Kitchen"—are to be
hung In the home.
And that Is what the national food
pledge week campaign Is all about.

SpaiJ<ed the Kitty.
The little black kitten hid under the
veranda and refused to come out and
be friends again with Polly. Mamma
found the little girl In tears, sad #sked
the cause of the trouble.
"Kittly scratched me, so I was
'bilged to spank her an' now she won't
play with nie," sobbed Polly.
"If you spank kitty, she won't love
you," explained inunma.

Don't Neglect Kidneys
Swamp Root, Dr. Kilmer's Prescrip-
tion, Overcomes Kidney Trouble
It if now conceded by physicians that
the kidneys should have more attention
as they control the other organs to a re-
markable degree and do a tremendous
amount of work in removing the poisons
and .waste matter from the system by
Altering the blood.
The kidneys should receive some as-
sistance when needed. We take less ex-
ercise, drink less water and often eat
more rich, heavy food, thereby forcing
the kidneys to do more work than nature
intended. Evidence of kidney trouble,
■uch as lame back, annoying bladder
troubles, smarting or burning, brick-
dust or sediment, sallow complexion,
rheumatism, maybe weak or irregular
heart action, warns you that your kid-
neys require help immediately to avoid
more serious trouble.
An ideal herbal compound that has had
most remarkable success as a kidney and
bladder remedy is l)r. Kilmer's Swamp-
Root. There is nothing else like it. It
is Dr. Kilmer's prescription used in pri-
vate practice and it is sure to benefit you.

The Food Administrator Writes Us:
"The use of baking powder breads made of corn and other coarse flours instead of
patent wheat flour is recommended by the Conservation Division of the Food
Administration. The wheat needed for export is thus conserved, and at the same
time healthful food for our own people is orovided. The circulation of recipes pro*
viding for these uses would be of assistanc in carrying out our plans."
