You Cannot Gripe, Sicken, or Salivate Yourself if You
Take “Dodson’s Liver Tone” Instead
Calomel salivates! It’s mercury.
Calomel acts like dynamite on a slug-
gish liver. When calomel comes Into
contact with sour bile It crashes into
It, causing cramping and nausea.
If you feel bilious, headachy, con-
stipated and all knocked out. Just go
to your (lrugglst and get a bottle of
Dodson's Liver Tone for a few cents,
which Is harmless vegetable substi-
tute for dangerous calomel. Take a
spoonful and if it doesn’t start your
liver and straighten you up better and
quicker than nasty calomel and with-
out making you sick, you just go hack
and get your money.
If you tuke calomel today you’ll be
sick and nauseated tomorrow; be-
sides, it may salivate you, while If
you tuke Dodson's Liver Tone you will
woke up feeling great, full of ambi-
tion. and ready for work or play. It’s
harmless, pleasant and safe to give
to children; they like it.—Adv.

Doctors have found by erperienc*
that xio medicine for colds aud influ-

step in the treatment is the now, nausea-

which are free from the sickening and
weakening effects of the old stylo cnlo-

that nn active liver may go a long way

lliC'AGO will have within the next
five years — and probably much
sooner — the Chicago Zoological
(lurilens—the hCst In the United
Slates and probably without an
cquul In the world. This zoo will
he established on 300 acres do-
nated by Mrs. llurold F. McCor-
mick of Chicago. Tnls site is three
miles west of the city line and IT
miles from the city hall. The fea-
ture of the zoo, aside from Its size and compre-
hensiveness. will be the exhibition of Its animals
under the “natural conditions” system.
Chicago Zoological Gardens Is Its name, but
Its ownership nnd management—at least at first—
will be a sort of composite affair. There Is to be
a Chicago Zoological Gardens society made
up of Chicago citizens. Mrs. McCormick
gave the land to the Forest Preserves of Cook
county. These are owned by the people In per-
petuity nnd are controlled by the Forest Preserve
district of Cook county. This district was or-
ganized as a separate taxing body by the Illinois
legislature. The Cook county commissioners by
virtue of their office are Forest Preserve com-
missioners. It appears, however, that these For-
est Preserve commissioners are without legal
warrant directly to underwrite the enterprise.
The public will therefore have to furnish the
sinews of war, for a while at least.
In these circumstances tin* Forest Preserve
commissioners appointed a committee to visit the
boos of the United States and get helpful Infor-
mation. Commission's Frank J. Wilson, chair-
man; William M. Maclean nnd George A. Miller
constitute this committee. The nub of their re-
port to President Peter Kelnberg and the com-
missioners lies In their “suggested plan of or-
ganization.” ns follows:
“In view of the program adopted by various
zoological enterprises, domestic nnd foreign. It is
the opinion of your committee that tin* honorable
president of this board further recognize the
great generosity of Mrs. McCormick by inviting
the co-operation of a body of representative citi-
zens of Cook county, men and women nnd, through
them, organize the Chicago Zoological Gardens
society. As the commissioners of the Forest
Preserve district nre without legal warrant to
directly undertake the work of underwriting the
enterprise, It would become the direct business
of the society to take formal action with refer-
ence to financing, Installing nnd maintaining the
same in a manner commensurate with Its Im-
“The authority of your board thus being lim-
ited, assistance may be required In the event of a
more active or extended participation in the con-
duct of the gardens. This authority necessarily
must be procured through legislative enactment
and the promotion of this may tie safely left in
tin* hands of tin* Influential body of men compris-
ing the corporate membership of the proposed
society. In this connection It Is obvious that the
people of the entire state of Illinois may he
counted upon to lend their support to any assist-
ance the great project deserves.”
Inasmuch ns the building. Installation ami
maintenance of the zoo will depend upon sources
of Income outside the Jurisdiction of the Forest
Preserve district, It Is Instructive to note how
the various zoos of, the country nre financed.
Take tie New York zoo for example. It Is con-
ducted by the New York Zoological society, of
which Dr. W. T. llornaday Is director and gen-
eral curator. This famous zoo contains 264 acres;
has 8,460 specimens of 068 species of mammals,
birds and reptiles, and attracts about 1.775.0(H)
visitors annually. Its sources of Income nre:
(1) From the Zoological society, through sub-
scription from private citizens—funds for plans,
for the erection of buildings, aviaries, dens and
' other accomodations for aulmuls and f< r the pur-
chase of animals.
| (2) From the city of New York certain funds
for the construction of walks, roads, sewers and
drainage, water supply, public comfort buildings,
I entrances, grading, excavating of large ponds and
I lakes, annual maintenance and also for animal
The membership of ‘he society, ns of Decem-
ber 81. 1018, was 2,286, divided Into the following
| classes: Benefactors, founders In perpetuity,
i founders, associate founders, patrons, life mem-
bers. annual members, fellows, honorary members,
torrespomllng members. Annual dues are ten
dollars, payable In advance und of annual mem-
bers of all walks of life there were 1840. The
by-laws provide membership fees as follows. In
addition to the annual class: Life, $200; patron,
$1,000; associate founder, $2,580; founder, $.5,000;
founder In perpetuity. $10.000; benefactor, $25,000.
Persons who have rendered marked service In the
science of zoology may be elected honorary mem-
bers, the nominations not exceeding three a year.

endowments toward maintenance, animals, birds,
reptiles, heads, horns, antlers and skins, library,
tropical research, art gallery, pension Income ac-
count, publications, aviary, etc., etc. Funds of
the society have been enriched by many bequests.
Mrs. Itussell Sage bequeathed one-fifty-second part
of her residuary estate, an amount accruing to
the institution of approximately $800,000, as prin-
cipal. An average net Income of 4.25 per cent Is
derived from the general endowment fund. A fund
of $100,000 contributed by Andrew Carnegie netted
$4,385 in 1018. A valuable aid to the general
work of the society, especially In furthering mem-
bership, Is that of the Woman’s Auxiliary. Its
activities have netted many thousands of dollars
toward maintenance, etc.
The terms of the contract between the city of
New York nnd the society state that the city shall
annually provide the necessary funds for the
maintenance nnd care of the zoological gardens,
Its buildings, enclosures und Improvements made
from time to time, and the animals and collec-
tions. This Is part of the consideration for the
society throwing open Its collection to the public
free of charge on five fays of the week. The
city, In addition, Is spared the expense of main-
taining a park of 264 acres. The total cost to the
city for the upkeep of the park and the aquarium
for the year 1018 was less than eight cents for
St. Louis has nn ambitious zoo project under
way. The wlte of 07 acres In Forest Turk is ex-
cellently adapted by nature to the purpose. The
Zoological Society of St. Louis held Its first
meeting October 11, 1011. A city ordinance set-
ting aside the Forest Park tract was passed De-
cember 2, 1013. The Missouri legislature then
gave the city of St. Louis the right to vote on a
one-fifth of a mill tax for construction and main-
tenance, and the voters passed the measure by a
heavy majority. This tax amounts to approxi-
mately $140,000 a year.
The site of the Chicago zoo Is favorably
located. Deference to the small map given here-
with mnkes this plain, In connection with the
following summary of the result of an inspection
by Emmett J. Flavin, chief engineer of the Forest
“The Chicago Zoological Gardens tract may be
reached from the city via the Chicago, Burlington
& Quincy railroad to Riverside or by way of the
suburban electric lines, one of which skirts the
southern boundary of the property. Automobile
routes are numerous, the most convenient at
present being Unit via Ogden avenue to Riverside
nml thence north to Desplalnes avenue nnd the
grounds. Another route Is along Roosevelt road
(West Twelfth street) to Desplalnes avenue and
thence along West Thirty-first street to the north-
east corner of the tract.
“The grounds are centrally located within the
boundaries of Cook county nnd not more than
fourteen miles from the Loop district or business
section of downtown Chicago. They are situ-
ated In the village of Riverside, three miles west
of the municipal boundary of the city. The gar-
dens nre bounded on the east by the Desplalnes
river, west by Salt creek, north by West Thirty-

"Owing to their rectangular shape, being one

mile north nnd south, a very desirable element Is
obtained, viz: a southern exposure which Is neces-
sary for the proper maintenance of a pretentious

All summer the several preserves have been used

The Forest Preserve district now contains
about 20.000 acres and will ultimately contain
about 35.000, stretching 52 miles north and south.
Most of it Is picturesque and scenically attractive, j
Nearly all of It Is historically Interesting. Much |
of It is real forest. The big tree shown herewith j
Is ample proof of this; no wonder It Is attracting
the attention of (left to right) Chief Forester
Ransonie Kennlcott, Dr. Henry C. Cowles, the
noted botnnlst of the University of Chicago, and
Dr. C. C. Adams of the New York State Unlversl-
ty of Forestry at Syracuse.
It Is no wonder that President Relnberg and
the county commissioners nre enthusiastic over the
zoo project as a feature of the forest preserve dis-
trict. The fact that such men as Victor F. Law-
son. Col. R. R. McCormick, Charles H. Wacker,
Dwight H. Perkins. William A. Petersen nnd John ,
C. Vaughan nre citizen members of the Forest 1
Preserve Plan committee shows that Chicago ap-
preciates the recreational and educational features
of the forest preserve Idea.
