Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills the Tonic
That Most People Need for
Blood end Nerves.
In winter the air of the close rooms in
which we spend so much of tho time
does not furnish enough oxygen to tho
lungs to burn out the foul mutter in the
blood. In the cold season we do not exer-
cise as nmchandtheskin audkidneysdo
not throw off the waste matter as freely
as usual. The system becomes overloaded
with poisonous matter, and too feeble
to throw it off. Relief can be had only
through the use of a remedy that will
promptly and thoroughly purify and
strengthen tho blood, and the one best
adapted for this purpose is the great
blood tonic known as Dr.Williams’ Pink
“They acted like magic iu my case,”
said Mrs. Clara L. Wilde, of No. 377
Farnsworth avenue, Detroit, Mich. “ I
was weak and thin and could not sleep.
My stomach and nerves were out of or-
der. I can’t describe how miserable I
really was. I dragged through six
months of feebleness, growing weaker
all the time until I finally hadn’t strength
enough to leive my bod.
“Then a glad day came, the clay when
I began to take Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills.
They made me feel strong right away.
My appetite came back, I took on flesh
and the color returned to my cheeks.
People wondered that these pills did for
me what the doctors couldn’t do. I took
only six boxes and then I was perfectly
well. If I bad not found this wonderful
remedy I surely think that I must have
wasted to death. Believing firmly that
these pills saved my life by the strength
which they gave me at a critical mo-
ment, I unhesitatingly recommend them
Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills contain no
stimulant but give strength that lasts.
They may be obtained at any drug
Curious Question of Law
A curious question of law has come
before tl Maine courts. A bishop
and the rector of a parish are being
sued for lmel by a man excommuni-
cated by them. The supreme court
has just held that there is a cause
lor action. The dismissal from church
is undoubtedly prejudicial to a man’s
character, but it is a nice question
to what extent the courts should in-
terfere with church discipline.
TOOK OLD GENTLEMAN'S ADVICE
Just the Counsel Fond Lover Was
Looking For. |
“The late Bishop Thomas Frederick
Davies of Detroit,” said a Detroit
man, “once told me an interesting
story of an elopement, fie figured iu
this elopement as the officiating cler-
gyman. It was in Philadelphia, dur-
ing his rectorship of St. Peter's.
“It seems that the proprietor of one
of the largest dry goods houses in
Philadelphia had noticed for some
months the melancholy of his head
clerk, a young man whom he held in
“The clerk’s pallor and Increasing
leanness, his frequent sighs and
absent-mindedness worried the mil-
lionaire proprietor. He questioned the
young man daily. And finally the
clerk admitted to him that he was in
“ ‘Well,’ said the head, 'marry her.
Your salary is big enough.’
“ ‘Ah,’ said the clerk sadly, ’you do
not understand. She belongs to one
of the first families of Philadelphia
and her father is a millionaire.’
“ ‘Well, maybe he wasn't when he
married. You have a good position
an-1 a good name. You are a fair
match for any girl,’ said the other.
“ ‘It's no use,’ sighed the clerk.
'Her parents would not listen to me
for one moment.’
‘Then,’ said the other, ‘elope with
“‘Do you advise that?’ the clerk
“ ‘Certainly, I do. Is she—do I
“ ‘Yes. She will be at your dance
at Devon to-morrow night.’
“ ‘Well, see here,’ said the head,
‘i’ll have my coachman out in front
of my gate at 9:30. Rush the girl oft
into town and marry her. I'll arrange
with a clergyman for you.’
“ ‘By Jove,’ said the clerk, ‘I’ll do
“And he did. The next night Dr.
Davies performed the ceremony and
an hour or two later the millionaire
found his daughter missing and was
telegraphing in every direction to the
the young couple to come home and
all would be forgiven.”
So There, Now!
"Jack, that old friend of yours told
me he remembered me when I wore
roy dresses up to my knees.”
“He did, eh? What did you say to
that?” asked her husband.
“Why, I told him I didn’t, care If he
did!”—Detroit Free Press.

Not Likely to Escape
Henry Vlgnaud, secretary of th®
American embassy at Paris, enjoys
telling of an American who was being
shown the tomb of Napoleon. As
the loquacious guide referred to tho
various points of Interest In connec-
tion with tho tomb, the Amvelcan
evinced the greatest interest In all
that was said.
“This immense sarcophagus," de-
claimed the guide, “weighs forty tons.
Inside of that, sir, is a steel receptacle
weighing twelve tons, and inside of
that is a leaden casket, hermetically
sealed, weighing over twTo tons. In-
side of that rests a mahogany coffin
containing the remains of the great
For a moment the American was
silent, as if in deep meditation. Then

him all right. If ho ever gets out,

What's in a Name?
Frequently in the South one finds
among the negroes as remarkable
Christian names as those bestowed
upon their offspring by the Puritan
A gentleman of Virginia tells of a
negro living near Richmond, who for
years has been familiarly known to
him as “Tim.' It became necessary
at one time in a law s.Mit to know tae
full mime of the darky. The not un-
natural supposition that Tim stood for
Timothy met with a flat denial.
“No, sah!” exclaimed the negro,
“mah name ain’t Timothy. Its Tvhat-

Golf in Cactus Center.
Ve was propped against the ‘dobe of lha-v
joint o’ Poker Bill’s
When a tenderfoot was spotted, actin’
queer-like in tho hills;
He’d a ball of gutta percha, and was
puttin’ In his licks
Jest a-knockin’ it to glory with a bunch
o’ crooked sticks.
Well, we went up there quite cur’ous,
and we watched him paste the ball,
Till a-itchin’ fer to try it seemed to get
a-holt of all.
And at last Packsaddie Stevens asked to
give the thing a swat,
And we gathered round to see him show
the stranger what was what.
Well, the golfer stuck the spheeroid on a
little pile o’ dirt
And Packsaddie swiped and swatted, but
he didn't do no hurt;
He barked his shins terrific, and ho broke
- his little stick,
And when he heard a snicker, his guns
came out, too quick.
We dropped behind the cactus with some
holes clipped in our clothes.
While the golfer for the sky-line wagged
his checker-boarded hose;
And when we took home Stevens, and
three others that was hurt.
The golf ball still was settin’ on its little
pile o’ dirt.
So we ain't no new St. Andrew’s, and we
hope no golfer thinks
He can cut loose here in Cactus with a
set of oatmeal links;
We go in fer games that’s quiet, and stir
up no blood and fuss,
And down in Cactus Center poker’s good
enough for us.
We ail of us claim to be natural, but
we all of us know that the only time
when we are not putting on is when
we axe asleep.
Our inventive friend invites us into
his music room.
“You will hear a perfect reproduc-
tion of a musicale,” says he. “I have
here, as you see, an automatic piano j
We smile, saying that wo have j
heard them play many a time, and
that we are well aware of their accur-
ateness In rendering even the most
“But,” he goes on, “I also have a |
dozen phonographs that will begin j
talking as soon as the player begins |
playing, and will carry on a discon- j Rorrm amateur says:
nected conversation during the entire
time the selection Is being rendered.'*
Around the fireside or about the
well-lighted family reading table dur-
ing the winter evenings the children
and grown-ups can play with their
wits and see how many words can be
20 people making the greatest num-
ber of words will each receive a little
bo:, containing a $10.00 gold piece.
10 people will each win one box con-
taining a $5.00 gold piece.
300 p”eople will each win a box con-
taining $1.00 in paper money and one
person who makes the highest number
of words over all contestants will re-
ceive a box containing $100.00 in gold.
It really a most fascinating bit of
fun to take up the list evening after
evening aud see how many words can
A few rules are necessary for abso-
lute fair play.
Any word authorized by Webster’s
dictionary will be counted, but no
name of person. Both the singular
and plural can be used, as for instance
“grape” and “grapes.”
The letters in "Y-I-O-Grape-Nuts”
may be repeated in the same word.
Geographical names authorized by
Webster will be counted.
Arrange the words in alphabetical
classes, all those beginning with A to-
gether and those beginning wilh E to
come under E, etc.
When you are writing down the
words leave some spaces, in the A, E,
and other columns, to fill in later as
new words come to you, for they will
spring Into mind every evening.
It is almost certain that some con-
testants will tie with others. In such
cases a prize identical in value and
character with that offered in that
class shall be awarded to each. Each
one will be requested to send with the
list of words a plainly written letter
describing the advantages of Grape-
Nuts, but the contestant is not re-
quired to purchase a pkg. These let-
ters are not to contain poetry, or fancy
flourishes, but simple, truthful state-
ments of fact. For illustration: A
person may have experienced some
incipient or chronic ails traceable to
unwise selection of food that failed to
give the body and brain the energy,
health and pdwer desired. Seeking
better conditions a change in food is
made and Grape Nuts and cream used
in place of the former diet. Suppose
one quits the meat, fried potatoes,
starchy, sticky messes of half-cooked
oats or wheat and cuts out the coffee.
Try, say, for breakfast a bit of fruit, a
dish of Grape-Nuts and cream, two
soft-boiled eggs, a slice of hard toast
and a cup of Postum FooJ Coffee.
"A man would
faint away on that,” but, my dear
friend, we will put dollars to your pen-
nies that the noon hour will find a
man on our breakfast huskier and
with a stronger heart-heat and clearer
work nit, brain than he ever had on
the old diet.
Suppose, if you have never really
made a move for absolutely clean
health that pushes you along each day
with a spring In your step and a re-
serve vigor in muscle and brain that
makes the doing of things a pleasure,
you join tho army of “plain old com-
mon sense” and start in now. Then
after you have been 2 or 3 weeks on
the Grape-Nuts training you write a
statement of how you used to be and
how you are now. The simple facts
will interest others and surprise your-
self. We never publish names except
on permission, but we often tell the
facts in thp newspapers, and when
requested give the names by private
There Is plenty of time to get per-
sonal experience with Grape-Nuts and
write a sensible, truthful letter to lie
sent in with the list, of words, as the
contest does not close until April 30th,
1900. So start in as soon as you like
to building words, and start In using
Grape-Nuts. Gut this statement out
and ’keep the letters Y-I-O-Grape-Nuts
before you and when you write your
letter you will have some reason to
write on the subject, “Why I Owe
Remember 331 persons will win
prizes, which will be awarded in an
exact and just manner as soon as tho
list can be counted after April 30th,
1906. Every contestant will be sent a
printed list of names and addresses of
winners on application, in order to
have proof that the prizes are sent as
agreed. The company Is well known
all over the world for absolute fidelity
to Its agreements and every single one
of the 331 winners may depend on re-
ceiving the prize won.
Many persons might feel it useless
to contest, but when one remembers
the great number of prizes—(331)—
the curiosity of seeing how many
words can really he made up evening
after evening and the good, natural
fun and education in the competition,
it seems worth the trial; there is no
cost, nothing to lose and a fine oppor-
tunity to win one of the many boxes
of gold or greenbacks.
We make the prediction that some
who win a prize of gold or greenbacks
will also win back health and strength
worth more to them than a wagon full
of money prizes.
There are no preliminaries, cut out
this statement and go at it, and send
in the list and letter before April 30th,
1906, to Postum Cereal Co., Ltd., Bat-
tle Creek, Mich., and let your name
and address be plainly written.
