I Guarantee "Dodson's Liver Tone" Will Give You the Best Liver
and Bowel Cleansing You Ever Had—Doesn't Make You Sick!
Stop using calomel! It makes you
sick. Don't lose a day's work. If you
feel lazy, sluggish, bilious or consti-
pated, listen to me! •
Calomel Is mercury or quicksilver
which causes necrosis of the bones.
Calomel, when it comes Into contact
with sour bile, crashes into it, breaking
it up. This is when you feel that aw-
ful nausea and cramping. If you feci
"all knocked out," if your liver Is tor-
pid and bowels constipated or you
have headache, dizziness, coated
tongue, if breath is bad or stomach
sour just try a spoonful of harmless
Dodson's Liver Tone.
Here's my guarantee—Go to any
drug store or dealer and get a 50-cent
bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone. Take a
spoonful and If it doesn't straighten
you right up and make you feel tine
and vigorous I want you lo go back to
the store and get your money. Dod-
son's Liver Tone is destroying the
sale of calomel because it is real liver
medicine; entirely vegetable, therefore
it cannot salivate or make you sick. '
I guarantee that one spoonful of
Dodson's Liver Tone will put your
sluggish liver to work and clean your
bowels of that sour bile and consti-
pated waste which is clogging your
system and making you feel miserable.
I guarantee that a bottle of Dodson's
Liver Tone will keep your entire fam-
ily feeling fine for months. Give it to
your children. It is harmless; doesn't
gripe and they like its pleasant taste.
PHYSICIAN OF THE OLD TIME WOMAN'S WORK IN THE WORLD
Perhaps There Are Some Who Will
Remember That They Were Not
Afraid of Him.
Doc Robinson never looked wise and
kept things to himself about a case.
He'd let one tell him every little symp-
tom and listen respectfully, and he'd
never go and whip out one of those
surveying instruments and go all over
a patient as if he were laying out a
new state road. No! He'd crack
jokes, gossip delightfully, and sud-
denly turn around and ask Margaret
if that wasn't a brand-new dress she
had on; feed little peppermint candies
to the children, and sit with Beveral
on his knees while he talked. He
made his call a pleasant affair. Ev-
eryone in a house enjoyed it and got
the benefit of it—even the invalid.
"Well," he'd say reluctantly, "Kit
and I've got to Jog along, though it's
mighty comfortable sitting here by
your fire. We gotta go 'way out on
the Cedar Mill road."—Helena Smith-
Dayton, in Cartoons Magazine.
New Uniform for Cuba's Navy.
The general staff of the Cuban navy
has appointed a committee to study
designs fcr a new uniform for the offi-
cers and enlisted men of the navy. The
present uniform, which is almost ex-
actly like that used by the United
States, is said to be too expensive for
Cuba. New equipment will also be
sought by the committee for the Cu-
ban naval cadets.
Activities of the "Weaker Sex" Prom!
nent Along Practically All Lines
More women are employed in the
manufacture of clothing than any oth-
er industry in Pennsylvania.
The Duchess of Norfolk has a col
lection of parasols of all countries,
said to be worth $2,500,
Two thousand women will serve as
judges and clerks of election in Chi-
cago this year, for which they will re-
ceive $7 per day.
Thousands of women have been
thrown out of work in Massachusetts
since the operation of the minimum
wage law went into effect.
The first savings bank was insti-
tuted by a woman, Priscilla Wakefield,
who inaugurated a bank scheme for
the encouragement of thrift among
children of Tottenham toward the end
of the eighteenth century.
A remarkable translation of Nich
olas Statham's "Abridgement of Law,'

you would build for efficient service now and for gen-
erations to come.
The "Road to Wellville" is built that way. And the
password to that road is "right living," in which food
and drink play such a big part.
More and more people are waking up to the need
of banishing from the dietary heavy, indigestible foods,
and food deficient in the vitalizing mineral salts. Food
scientists now hold that the lack of these elements is
one of the chief causes of a long list of ills, including
anemia, constipation, nervous prostration, kidney
trouble, and so on.
Long ago a food—now famous—was devised to
make up for this lack, and it does it admirably.
That, food is
Made of whole wheat and barley, it contains all the
nutrition of the grain, including those vital elements—
ph osphate of potash, etc.—which are indispensable for
perfect balance of body, brain and nerves, and for
warding off disease.
This food comes ready to eat, is economical, and
delicious. Digests quickly—generally in about one
hour—and is full of health-making goodness.
A ration of Grape-Nuts along with other food has
started thousands on the "Road to Wellville.'

The Change of Life is a most critical period of a
woman's existence, and neglect of health at this time invites
disease and pain. Women everywhere should remember
that there is no other remedy known to mcdicine that will
so successfully carry women through this trying period as
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, made from
native roots and herbs. Read these letters: —
Philadelphia, Pa.—"I started the Change of Life
live years ago. I always had a headache and back-
ache with bearing down pains and I 'would havo
heat flashes very bad at times with dizzy sjiells and
nervous feelings. After taking Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound I feel like a new person and
in better health and no more troubled with
the aches and pains I had before I took your won-
derful remedy. I recommend it to my friends for I
cannot praise it enough."—Mrs. Margaret C<bass-
man, 750 N. Kinggold St., Philadelphia, Pa.
Beverly, Mass.—"I took Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, for nervousness and dyspepsia, when I was
going through the Change of life. I found it very helpful and I
have always spoken of it to other women who suffer as I did and
have had them try it and they also have received
good results from it."—Mrs. George A. Dunbar,
17 ltoundy St., Beverly, Mass.
Erie, Pa.—"I was in poor health when the
Change of life started with me and I took Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, or I think I
should not havo got over it as easy as I did. Even
now if I do not feel good I take tho Compound
and it restores me in a short time. I 'will praise
your remedies to every woman for it may help
them as it lias me."—Mrs. E. Kisslino, 031 East
24th St., Erie, Pa.
No otherinetlieino lias boon so successful in relieving woman's
suffering as has Lydia 10. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Women may receive frooand helpful advice by writing tho Lydia

NEWEST IN CHEMISTRY
This is a recent discovery of Doctor
•Pierce, head of the Invalids' Hotel,
Buffalo, N. Y. Experiments for sev-
eral years proved that there is no
other eliminator of uric acid compa^
rable. For those easily recognised
symptoms of inflammation—as back-
ache, scalding urine and frequent uri-
nation, as well as sediment in the
urine, or if uric acid in the blood has
caused rheumatism, "Anurlc" acts
quickly. In rheumatism of tho joints,
in gravel and gout, invariably tho
pains and stiffness which so frequently
and persistently accompany the dis-
ease rapidly disappear.
