FOR THE l!
Appetite Is Necessary In Order To
Digest What We Eat.
We notice that soin«- of the most
] rocoH8 of dlKestton unite in the opin-
ion that a keen appetite is a great aid
to proper digestion. Home ev«n go so
far as to say that there must be a
good sharp appetite fur the food eaten
in order that it be propirly digested
and assimilated. Dr. J I' Pawlow's
••May on "Tlio Work -.if tli« IHgostive
Glands," which was awarded the NobW
prize, sets forth very clearly the value
There is no other such safe sure
means for creating a healthy appetite
as Pabst Hlue Ribbon Beer taken be-
fore or with your meils. and il is an
.* I most absolute guariinte«- of perfect I hhnlin
digestion, while its tonic and food
value cannot bo overestimated.
!>r. Joseph Feislcr, of the North-
western University of Chicago, in com-
menting upon this said: "i fully b -
lieve that the moderate une of good
beer at meal times acts as a tonic and
is therefore useful."
I r. Feislcr stands at the head of his
profession and his words must carry
great weight with those seeking
h< id tli.
Pabst Blue Ribbon is such a beer as
1 r. Feislcr recommends. It is a prod-
uct of eight-day malt, choicest hops
and pure water. Pabst eight-day malt
contains all the valuable food elements
<-f the barley in prodim-sted form. It
glv« s Pabst Beer its rich nutrition and
the fine mellow flavor which distin-
guishes it from other boor. Tills, to-
gether with sixty yeai ^ <>f scientific
brewing, is what has • >i Pabst Beer
.so far in the lead. No l -« «1 that comes
f roin the cleanest kitchen ean be
• leaner, purer and more wholesome
than this celebrated beer.

From rriaay's Dally constitution.
Washington, Feb., IS. A comprom-
ise coal land lull hats finally been a-
gree-d upon by tha house oommii.tei? on

Only our hid was submitted to John
P. Itlacl-mcn, Indian agent of the Ki-
owa-Comanche agaacy at Anadarko fo
the eighty acres of land offered for
sale by Otto Wells, as an addition to
the city of Anadarko. This was subml

and was opened at the agency yester-
day. He offea 110,000 for the north
half of Ihe eighty or $1S.32# for the

xchnngfd for a can of sorghum mo-
iiL S's. which was used to sweeten
tea made of spieewood that grew in
the nearby thickets. Coffee was an im
possibility and not to be divamed of.
"Before the first crop of corn had
matured the family had exhausted its
supply of meal, and to get more wivs
compelled to rub the soft corn on a
grater made of an old tin can. When
autumn came Lutlim* went on horse-
back to Parton's water mill in Green
county where he staid all day for
his first grinding of meal.
"Karly winter found the four child-
ren, three boys and one girl, without
shoes, and before they were shod ihe
tots of the youngest were nipped many
mornings by the stinging frost.
"The cost of having a pair of shoes
ha.lf-soled was l eyond the financial
resources of the family in the pinchln
days of winter. Wle-n Luther got his
sho-H 1' .'f-soied, h' sat without them
in tli ' .bbler's shop until the sho
wer? ; .red, and then paid the cob-
bler by cutting sprouts on land that

and fat bacon carried in his pocket.
"Luther lived seven years on the
farm and during that, time had only-
one coat, bought when he was 14 ye-
ars eld. He was still wearing this
caat five years later when t.he family
moved to Marshifleld, the sleeves far
toward his elbows, while a wide g' p
intervened between the tail and the
band of his trousers.
"Death came one day to the Turner
household, and the father fell asleep.
The widow and children sold ihe only
horse they had owned and farmed with
and moved to Marshfield, where 1 tini-

store at $12.00 a monlh, and supported
his mother. His salary was increased
from month to monrti and la.t* in thi'
