"ON THAT FIRST CHRISTMAS
the WISE MEN established for all time the custom of bearing Rifts so
that now CHRISTMASTIDE means not only the pealing of bells tho
flaunting of green and crimson and the communing of man with fellow-
man but the time when we bear gifts to our loved ones the ones whose as-
sociations have made for bigger and better things the ones who really
have made our life livable. To these loved ones the Yuletide directs your
attention your thoughts and your careful consideration.
Look well and carefully therefore before you select some substitute for the
"REAL" gift the gift that mirrors your appreciation of the ones who so
truly appreciate YOU."
The Spirit of Christmas.
The Gift of Gifts and NOT a Substitute
The gift that will introduce to that intimate fireside circle the
home the world's music. The pathos of the old time melodies
the crash of the opera the tongues of foreign lands THE
MASTER OF EVERY INSTRUMENT.

the drinking of Water
(Hy M. C. LIVAS M. II.)
The general conclusions of the latest
medical scientists proves that drink-
ing of plenty of pure water both be-
tween meals and with one's meals Is
beneficial to health. It has also been
proven by means of the X-rays and
actual tests upon many healthy young
men that tho drinking of water Willi
meals is not harmful to digestion.
Those suffering from a catarrhal
condition of the stomach will find
benefit In adding about 10 grains
(one-sixth of a level teaspoonful) of
baking soda to a pint of hot water
drinking it a half hour before each
meal. Such ns are Inclined to hyper-
acidity should drink a pint of medium
cold water two hours after meals. If
you ever suffer from headache lum-
bago rheiimutiam or any of tho symp.

American men and women must
guard constantly against kidney trou-
