THE HI SSIAN COLLAPSE
The Russian collapse has been ex- 1
fected for many months, and was no
surprise when it came. While Rns |
ila may not be of any more help to
the Allies, we .-should not forget th
fact that Russia has struck sotue
powerful blows against Germany and
Austria. When Germany found sbc
eould not take Paris In 1914, s'ie
then turned her millions agalns'
Russia and was continually attack-
ing her from November 1, 1911
until September 1, 1915. Russia
was then strong and well suppl ed
with ammunition and the way he
slaughtered the Germans appalled
even old General Hindenburg. It is
reported that over two million Ger-
mans were killed, and one million
permanently disabled and about u
million were captured. So th se
Heavy blows that Russia struck "ill

Mr. Marion Holcomb, of Nancy, Ky., says: "For quite
a long while I suffered with stomach trouble. 1 would
have pains and a heavy feeling after my meals, a most
disagreeable taste in my mouth. If 1 ate anything with
butter, oil or grease, I would spit it up. I began to have
regular sick headache. 1 had used pills and tablets, but
after a course of these, I would be constipated. It just
seemed to tear my stomach all up. I found they were
no good at all for my trouble. I heard
recommended very highly, so began to use it. It cured
ine. I keep it in the house all the time. It is the best
liver medicine made. I do not have sick headache or
stomach trouble any more." Black-Draught acts on
the jaded liver and helps it to do its important work of
throwing out waste materials and poisons from flic sys-
tem. this medicine should be in every household for
use in time of need. Get a package today. If you feel
sluggish, take a dose tonight You will feel fresh to-
morrow. Price 25c a package. All druggists.
