Constipated Take "DodsoiVs Liver Tone."—It's Fine!
sluggish liver better than a dose of |
nasty calomel and that it won't make !
Dodson's Liver Tone is real liver I
You're bilious! Your liver is slug-
gish! You feel lazy, dizzy and all
knocked out. Your head is dull, your
tongue is coated; breath bad; stomach
sour and bowels constipated. But don't
take salivating calomel. It makes you
sick, you may lose a day's work.
Calomel is mercury or quicksilver
which causes necrosis of the bones.
Calomel crashes into sour bile liko
dynamite, breaking it up. That's when
jou feel that awful nausea and cramp-

tlest liver and bowel cleansing you
ever experienced just take a spoonful
of harmless Dodson's Liver Tone. Your
druggist or dealer sells you a E-0-cent
bottle of Dodson's Liver Tono under
my personal money-back guarantee
that each spoonful will clean your
medicine. You'll know it next morn-
ing because you will wake up feeling
fine, your liver will be working, your
headache and dizziness gone, your
stomach will be sweet and your bowels
regular. You will feel like working;
Not a Can nibal.
Little Dorothy, whose father owned
a canning factory, went to Sunday
school for the first time, but soon
came running home screaming at the
top of her voice.
"Why, Dorothy," said the father,
"what is the matter?"
"Oh, dadddy!" she cried. "Don't lot
them do it, will you?"
"Do what, my child?"
"Don't let them can me!" she
"Can you? What do you mean?"
"Why, the teacher said for every-
body to sing, 'Can a little child 'ike
me.' and then 1 ran away 'fore they

you'll be cheerful; full of vigor and temper?
Dodson's Liver Tone Is entirely
vegetable, therefore harmless and can-
not salivate. Give it to your children!
Millions of people are using Dodson's
Liver Tone instead of dangerous cal-
omel now. Your druggist will tell you
that the sale of calomel is almost
stopped entirely here.

The Wise Fool.
"Time works wonders," observed
"So could I if I were as tireless as
time," responded the fool.
SOME features in th« present styles
prove very useful to the woman
inclined to practice economy In dress-
ing. Tbe liking for long tunics of
chiffon (or other diaphanous mate
rials) over underskirts of silk, and the
vogue of long sleeves of chiffon over
undersleeves of net or lace, make it
easy to remodel an out-of-date gown
of silk or satin. Tlie overdrapery is
of the same color, but not always of
exactly the same shade, as the silk
Tunics are so long that little of the
underskirt Is visible below them. They
are cut to flare and ripple at the bot-
tom, and in nine out of ten gowns are
finished with a border of some kind,
usually a narrow band of fur.
Last year's velvet and cloth dresses
are brought up to date by shortening
the skirts to tunic length. By cutting
off a quarter of a yard or more around
the bottom the skirt becomes a tunic
to be worn over an underskirt, faced
up with satin to match the tunic in
color. A straight skirt of cambric or
percallue is cut the required length,
and the facing applied to it is of ample
width to be lost under tbe tunic.
With the material cut away from
the skirt to form the tunic a wide
girdle may be managed. Long wrin-
kled sleeves of satin, like that used
for facing the underskirt, or chiffon
sleeves matching the dress in color,
change the appearance of the bodice.
The introduction of many buttons,
along with other military modes, will
help out the economically inclined in
making over or freshening up last
A little party gown, somewhat like
that shown in the picture, is made by
covering a plain silk underskirt with
chiffon or net ruffleg. The bodice Is
covered with a drapery of the thin ma-
terial, shirred at the shoulders, and
the sleeves are long and shirred along
the seams. There is a soft, crushed
girdle about the waist, fastened und°r
a Bpray of the new and lovely sweet-
pea blossoms, made of ribbon. These
are in several light colors and make
an exquisite, corsage bouquet. They
are the last word In ribbon flowers.
There Is much pleasure to be derived
from a frock which has been success-
fully remodeled. It happens that the
present fashion of combining two or
more materials in the composition of a
gown plays into the hands of the clev-
er woman who intends to extend the
service of those of her dresses that are
a little worn or somewhat passe in
The Third Generation.
John Barrymore tells this story
about his little nephew, Sammy Colt,
the son of his famous sister, Ethel
This story illustrates how the desire
of the theatrical artist for "exclusive
business" is probably transmitted from
one generation to another.
"I was present one night last week
when my sister was putting her young-
sters to bed," says Uncle John. "Sho
has reared them like old-fashioned
children, and taught them to sa their
prayers at night. This night Sammy
hesitated and there was a worried
look on his face. He had got no
further than 'Now I lay me,' when he
" Say, muvver,' he complained, 'I
don't fink I'll say that prayer. I heard
another fellow s^y it today, and if we
aren't careful it will get all over
town the first thing we know.'"
IS CHILD CROSS,
POINT IN CHILD EDUCATION
Scarfs and Mufflers
Before Punishment of Faults There
Should Be Careful Weighing
Is It not true that parents often
seek their own peace and comfort
rather than the welfare and reforma-
tion of a child In the punishment of
faults?, "Let us do the easiest and
have it over." One of the most vital
points in child education is the careful
weighing of motives and tempera-
ments. Be firm and calm—and that is
reasonable. The close relationship of
body, mind and soul demands a con-
sideration of this trinity of each indi-
vidual In order to have a healthful
unit. Poor digestion makes an irri-
table temper, a defect of vision may
be at the roct of a moral obliquity,
and deafness makes for seeming idi-
ocy. Many physicians have failed to
help solve a mother problem because
they have not understood the child's
defect, which was far removed from
the superficial symptoms.—Modern

Children love this "fruit laxative,"
and nothing else cleanses the tender
stomach, liver and bowels so nicely.
A child simply will not stop playing
to empty the bowels, and the result is
they become tightly clogged with

sours, then your little one becomes

SAGE TEA DARKENS GRAY
HAIR TO ANY SHADE. TRY ITI
SO many new patterns in scarfs and
mufllers made their appearance on
shop counters for the holiday trade
that they could not be overlooked.
And upon inspection certain new fea-
tures were evident in them that led
the mind to an inference not to be es-
caped. The inference is that, along
with so many other accessories of
dress, the muffler must be washable in
order to be salable.
Those that pleased the public most
were knitted (by machinery) of mer-
cerized cotton or some other fiber that
looks just like silk. Many different
kinds of stitches gave plenty of va-
riety. Most of the mufflers were cream
white, many of them gray, very few
were black, and there were fine com-
binations of black and white that sold
readily. Two shades of gray made an
elegant combination with the lighter
shade and as a border on a darker
ground. Many of the mufflers were
finished with silk tape fringe. A hand-
ome muffler of this kind sells at a
moderate price, a dollar being about
the average to be paid for the knitted
There is little difference in the pat-
terns made for men and women. White
mufflers knitted in the fancier stitches
were naturally selected for women,
with gray or black and white favored
Besides these moderately heavy and
medium sized silky-looking patterns
there were lone heavy mufflers of wool
made of ample length and width to be
wrapped about the neck, for those who
*re devoted to outdoor winter sports.
The handsomest were of white angora
wool decorated with gay stripes at the
ends. And for dressy wear mufflers
of heavy silk, hemmed at the ends and
adorned with the monogram of the
owner, remained the choice of those
whose taste is unquestioned. Light
gray is far and away in the lead as to
The most fashionable of scarfs for
women are apparently those made of
crepe de chine. This alluring faoric,
in the good qualities, is not hurt in the
least by washing. It is therefore ex-
tending its field of usefulness. These
scarfs of crepe are made in all the
light colors, and some of them are ex-
quisitely embroidered in floral designs
in self-color. They are hemmed at the

You Don't Have to Lie About
Canada—The Simple Truth
The natural resources of the coun-
try are so vast that they cannot be
told in mere figures. Man can only
tell of what tiny portions have done.
He can only say, "I am moro pros-
perous than I ever expected to be."
And yet If a farmer expects to suc-
ceed on land that he has been forced
to pay $50 to $100 an acre for he ought
to feel assured of attaining prosperity
when he finds tbe richest prairie soil
at his disposal absolutely free. If he
has a little capital, let him invest it
all in live stock and farm implements
—he will find himself ten years ahead
of the game. Some day such a chance
will not be found anywhere on the
face of the globe. But now the same
opportunities await you as awaited
the pioneer and not one hundredth
part of the difficulties he encountered
and overcame. Success in Canada is
made up of two things, natural re-
sources and human labor. Canada
has the one and you the other. A
postal card stands between you and
the Canadian government agent. If

Women from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from all sections
of this great country, no city so large, no village so small
but that some woman has written words of thanks for
health restored by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-

TTodgdon, Me.—" I feel it a duty I owe to all suffering women to
ved what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound did for me. Ona
year ago I found myself a terrible sufferer. I had pains in both sides
and such a soreness I could scarcely straighten up at times. My
back ached, I had no appetite and was so nervous 1 could not sleep,
then I would be so tired mornings that I could scarcely get around.
It seemed almost impossible to movo or do a bit of work and I
thought I never would be any better nntil I submitted to an opera-
tion. I commenced taking I.ydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
and soon felt like a new woman. I had no pains, 6lept well, had good
appetite and was fat and could do almost all my own work.for_a fam-

For the Man Guest.
Much has been said about the com-
forts and conveniences which a guest
room should offer in the way of sew-
ing supplies and reading matter for
feminine guests. It seems that the
masculine cause has been neglected.
As a contribution to their comfort
have on the guest room bureau a small
Japanese cabinet, in which are collar
buttons, black and tan shoe strings,
heavy safety pins, a few useful but-
tons, with heavy needles and thread
and other odds and ends which experi-
ence has taught are likely to meet

called "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur
Hair Remedy." You just dampen a
sponge or soft brush with it and
draw this through your hair, taking
one small strand at a time. By morn-
ing all gray hair disappears, and, after
another application or two, your hair
becomes beautifully darkened, glossy
and luxuriant. You will also dis-
cover dandruff is gone and hair has
