Mangled Names
I remember one London critic telling me, writes K. N. in the Dinning
ham l'ost. how lie had wired to a Glas
gov.- paper tiie news that Uie great
Tllklsch had just arrived and would
conduct tho London Symphony or
chestra on such and sucb a date. Tho
telegraph iperator, as usual, spoiled
the unfamiliar name along the line of
least resistance. Tho Glasgow subeditor, not being a musical man, bad
never beard ot Nikisch, but as tlie adjective 'great' was prefixed to the
name, he naturally assumed that he
must be a Scotchman, so the Glasgow-
public was informed Ihe next day that
the great JIcKish had arrived in London.
I remember aiso a London colleague
reduced to a state cf collapse by dls
covering that ho had been made to
say that Andrew Dlaelt had sum

For Sunday School Teachers
A teacher in a mission Sunday
school in a Scottish town has come
interesting stories to tell, in the 111
sionnry Record of the United Free
church, of Iho answers which have
come from infant lips to her Bible
questions. Sometimes one gels a
perfectly natural but wholly unexpected reply. Asked what Xannian did
after washing in the Jordan before lie
returned to his native land, ono mite
gave the obvious answer: Dry bissolf.
The class was told the story of the littlo Shunamite, his sunstroke and his
restoration by the prophet, and wishing to lnculcato gratitude the teacher
asked what the mother would do when
she got him back. P'.t a bannet on
his In-id. shouted immediate:;- a practical youth.
The Price of Peace
Sho t.'pearod to be somewhat excited when ho came home that night, and
he naturally asked the cause.
The man in tho top flat has fallen
in love* with our cook, she said.
What of it. ho ashed.
He's been trying to got lie:* to run
away and marry him.
Do you 'ean tho man who practices on tho cornet every night?
Sho said she did, and ho made a
dive for his pocket.
Tell tlie cook, he exclaimed excitedly, that I am a poor man, but I will
give $o0 ii slie'il do it.
A Daring Escap-
General de Negrler was one of tho
French officers who succeeded iu escaping from German custody in 1ST0.
Ho was in Metz—anel iu hospital—at
the time of the capitulation, but in*
steatl of constituting himself a prisoner be put on his uniform, mounted
his horse and ride off as an Independent gentleman. Before long he was
stopped by a sentinel who demanded
his papers, and, as lie had no papers,
lie* handed up ..is ticket of admission
to the hcsphal. While the German
was slowly spelling it out Negrier shot

crossing it. after a rest, to take part
In the operations of Faldherbe's army
of the north. It is not surprising that
so resourceful a soldier got quick
promotion und was successively the
youngest colonel, tho youngest general of brigade and the youngest general
of division in tho French army.
Tlie little, mild, bald m;.r. hart settled down in tlio train to read, and
foaling drowsy after a trying day at
business, fell asleep. On tlu "hnt rack
above was a ferocious crab in a buck-
el ond, reaching the- edge of tlie rack.
It fell, alighting on tli" littlo mar.'s
shoulder ..nd grabbed his car to steady
Itself.
All the passengers wailed expectantly for development, but all they hoard
was:

Sicilian Carts
Ot all the vehicles in tlio world
thero Is none to cental the Sicilian cart
which is carved, yellow, paneled with
lurid paintings that run the gamut of
myth and history. One wc saw bad

so marveiousty wrought that they

Just as '.Veil OK
A. man had his next door neighbor
arrested on a chart., of wilfully damaging a chicken.
Tbe Judge looked at the charge witt
mingled amusement and surprise, and
when the plaintiff was put on the
stand he asked him what damage had
been done to tho bird.
My next door neighbor caught the
chicken in his garden, answered the
plaintiff, and wrung it3 neck.
I see, returned the judge. What
was tho chicken worth alive?
It was worth 75 cents, answered the
plaintiff,
What was it worth dead? questioned
tlie judge.
Seventy-five cents, replied tho plaintiff.
I fail to see where any appreciable
damage was done, said the judge. The
case is dismissed.
GUARD THE BABY AGAINST COLDS
Tlie season for colds is at hand
and unless the mother keeps a continual watch over her little ones cold will
seize them aud often more serious results follow. An occasional dose of
Baby's Own Tablets will prevent colds,
or if they do come on suddenly the
Tablets will clear the stomach ond
bowels and instantly relieve the baby
from cold. Tbo T'.blets ore sold by

Energy and Work
What becomes of the c.ergy ot motion of a street car when suddenly
stopped?
Law—mass multiplied by velocity
equals momentum. The mass ot the
car in pounds or tons multiplied by its
specific speed in fee per second gives
a product named foot pounds or foot
tons. This momentum is expended
at the instant of collision or impact
ln delivering a blow, a ia the case of
a cannon ball. It the body receiving
tbe impact is movable part of the momentum will appear in it as motion.
If immovable tbe car will be smashed
or move backwards, avnd tho molecules of the matter at point of impact
will be increased in temperature and
also be moved somewhat. That requires energy, and work has been accomplished from instant of collision
until rest obtains. Tlie answer ls the
energy of momentum is transformed
into work.
Li
A Carelessly Treated Cold
is the source oi* most sickness because drugged
pills, syrups and alcoholic mixtures are
uncertain and unsafe.
Scott's Emulsion has been relied upon by-
physicians for forty years as the safe and sensible
remedy to suppress the cold and build up the
enfeebled forces to avert throat and lung troubles.
Don't tolerate alcoholic substitute*, but insist
on the Gtmulno Scott's EmuHlon.  One bottle usually
last* longer than tt cold.   Every druggist has it.   u ;j

Sleep and Laughter
People who sleep well quickly recover from an ailment, anel for this reason, years ago. sleep was pronounced
as one of nature's cures for ail dis
rases
a person who accustoms himself or
herself to a full and regular sleep is
not so liable to an attack of disease as
the person who fcrgoe3 bis proper
rest. More, when attacked by any ailment, a good sleeper recovers the
Quicker.
Laugh and live, is a time hinorad
saying, and a famous doctor once recommended one of his patients to try
a course of funny stories. The patient, who was suffering from a nervous breakdown through overwork',
obeyed the doctor's instructions, and
the effect of hearty laughter soon
brought him round. The menu re-
conimcnded was one funny story at
each meal with two extra at dinner.

■y EDWARD L. PARKER.
'A murder ln a quiet tannine com-;
■unity relatively excites as much
Hmmotion as the shooting down of a
bob In a city. I was tben eighteen
Itars old and bad never known any-
king so exciting as tbe killing of a mas
thorn I bad known all my life. I ran
Mt of tbe bouse and down tbe road
Is tha scene of tbe murder. Ou my
•nival I saw several ot tbe neighbors
Handing on tho porch discussing wbo
ke murderer could be.
Pushing by tbem, I weut into the
Mom where the crime bad been com*
kitted and saw tbo body stretched
In a lounge, where it had been lifted
Irom tbe floor. I noticed tbat the shirt
front, besides being covered with
Mood, had been blackened. Mr. Aek-
ars had probably been shot by one so
tear bim ns to produce this blacken*
Ltog by burnt powder. Turning my
eyes from llio body, I saw a Utile
sound thing on the floor about tbo size
kf n small marble. 1 picked It up and
found lt to be a bullet. It was sticky
frith blood.
| It occurred to mc that It was the
kullot wllh which the shooting had
keen done. I bad never beard of detectives, for 1 had always lived on a
•arm, nud this was before the day
(arliea llie country newspapers were
■Hod wilh stories about the wonderful
tracings of this class of persons.
(Therefore lt did not occur to uie that
tte bullet might bo of uso in furnishing a clow to tlio murderer, It did
■ot occur to mc that it would be a One
thing to possess a bullet that bad kill-
ad a man, and 1 thrust it luto uiy
trousers pocket, '
I I bad no sooner done so than Dr.
l>odd came in wilh several others and,
•ftcr examining the body, said:
I "Ho   bas   been   shot   through   aud

| Somo one, noticing me, told me to
r*ot out. I did so reluctantly, for since
Ms was tbe o ly exciting event that
*l OOSraUED THAT I BID THI BULLET."
tad come Into my life I tbonght It a
hardship not to bo permitted to remain
to tee and bear al1 thero was to ba
inn and heard. I olned the loiterers
outside nnd learned thut the police had
been notified aud were expected soon.
A big man with a badge on bis breast
tamo before I left and went Into tbe
boose with an nir of authority. I en-
Vied blm, thinking him to bo n very
Important personage, for everybody
Bade tray for him.
I knew nothing, at least for some
time, ot what was golug on with refer-
ttaet to tho matter. The body was
duly barled, tbe funeral being a very
largo one. I attended myself, moved
by a desire to see all tbat I wns permitted to see connected with the event
•f tbs murder, and when It was all
tret and 1 was obliged to settle back
Into my farm duties, unrelieved by any
•xrttemont whatever. I felt like a boy
tb* day after tbe circus bad como and
(ont,
(t wss then that I look the ballet
from ray pocket nnd looked at tt ns
the only memorial I possessed of the
•nl? exciting event that bad entered
Into my uneventful life. I owned a
squirrel gun and wns more or less In-
terMted In arms and ammunition. I
dropped tho bullet Into water to wash
tho blond off It nnd wiped It on my
trousers. I owned a Utile magnifying
ksndelass which I hnd bought for 10
Cent*. Without any especial object la
Blind I brought It to birar on my prist.
Two scratches on the lend wore ro-
VMiad by the glass, and 1 noticed that
Ihey wero parallel.
Now, If I hud not been of nn Inquiring mind my story would here come
t» an end. or, rather, lt would never
bavo heen be n. 1 certainly did not
eonnwt these scratches wllh thp dls-
1 tovory of the murderer. I simply
Couldn't understand whnt caused them,
fenr I was not long In suspecting thnt
th*? had been produced It? th* tiny
Ctuberancei.  probably  rust,  tn the
ml of th* sreiuion from whlcb ths
bullet had been fired.  That theory at>
counted for tbelr parallelism.
Bnt I vas not sore, tnd ln order to
prove tho matter I got down my squirrel gun, tnd, looking down into tbe barrel, by focusing tho sun's rays with my
magnifier I saw a minute speck which
might cause a scratch on a bullet fired
past It Loading tbe gun with a new
bullet, I fired the ball Into a tree, cut
tt out and examined It Bnt If the
scratches had been mads they had
been so added to that I could not detect them. I fired another bullet Into
t bank with the same negative result
Looking about for some softer sub- ;
stance to pnt it Into, I noticed the barrel
used to catch rainwater from the roof
of the house, and It occurred to mc to
catch tbe bullet ln water. I made my i
experiment again, this time in the wa-
ter barrel, and, examining the ball
witb my microscope, saw a scratch
corresponding with tbe rust speck'ln j
tbe barrel of my gun. i
Then tbe fact came Into my brain i
that the barrel of tbo pistol whlcb had
been used to kill Mr. Ackers undoubt- j
edly contained two little protuberances
against which tho bullet had rubbed '
on being fired, nnd the distance between these protuberances would bo
exactly   tbe   same   as   between   ths
scratches.   I do not mean that this occurred to mo as a possible means of
discovering tho murderer.    I merely
looked upon It as an Interesting fact.    j
Meanwhile the police wero Investigating. Tho period of the detective
was coming on, and two or threo men
were working on The case. But they
worked secretly, and 1 knew nothing
nbout wbat tbey were doing, nor did
I receive any information upon this
till a man of tbo name of Coyne was
arrested for llio murder nnd held for
trljl. Tbero was n lot of circumstantial evidence against bim. Mr. .\ek-
crs had owed him somo money, which
Coyne bad vainly tried to get. Coyne
hud been beard to use violent language
to Ackers. Indeed, a threatening letter from tbe former was found among
tlie iattcr's papers. Immediately after
tho murder Coyue bad disappeared
aud was arrested In a distant cily. lie
owned a pistol, whicli was captured
by tlie police, nnd one chamber was
found empty. The evidence consisted
lu theso two features—tbe matter ot
scouring payment of the debt nnd the
revolver, ono chamber of which had
been discharged.
I wns in court during tbe trial and
heard the prosecuting attorney make
a strong point against llio prisoner by
producing tho accused's revolver.
When tbe court adjourned I went to
Coyne's counsel, and 1 confessed that
I bud the bullet which killed Ackers
and which had not been found by tho
police. I also told him of my experiments and tbat 1 believed tbo pistol
with wblch tho murder had been com*
milted could be idcutilicd by the
scratches on the bullet.
Tho lawyer—Trucsdalo—stared at me
while 1 spoko with eyes as large as
butter plates, then asked mo a lot of
questions. The trial had euded for the
day, nnd ho immediately adopted
means to bo ready with llio new evidence on tbo morrow. Uo told me to
bring the bullet to him at once ln cot-
tou, fearing tbat It might rccolvo other
scratches. I did as ho bid inc. and the
next day when tho court convened I
went tbere. as requested.
The moment I entered tbe courtroom
Coyne looked at mc Willi terrible anxiety on his face, havlug been apprised
nf what bad passed between mo and
his counVl. As for me, I was wondering wbetber 1 would prove blm a
guilty on an innocent man. A barrel
of water stood ln tlie courtroom beneath the Judge's bench. Trnesdals
Instructed me to load my squirrel gun :
with a new bullet and tire It Into the
water. 1 did so, nnd bo showed the
bullet and the Interior of tho gun barrel lo the jury, using the same means
is I bad used in my experiment, except thnt bis microscope was moro
powerful and his light was electric.
The scratch on the lend was apparent
Tho bullet that had killed Ackers
was then produced and the scratches
shown (ho Jury. It was of tbe sums
caliber as Coyne's revolver. A new
bullet was then put in Coyne's pistol
and fired Into tho water.
I was watching llio prisoner, and as
toon as the experiment with tbo squirrel gun bad terminated I saw bis fscs
light up with hope. When tbe bullet
was taken out of the water ho showed
great agitation. Ills counsel flrst examined tbe bullet, then looked at blm
with au expression of Joy. The ball
was examined hy Iho Jury and found
to be without a scratch.
Tlio demonstration thnt Ackers had
not been killed from tho prisoner's revolver was conclusive, nnd since this
was tlie keystone of tho evidence
against him the stole's case fell to tho
ground. He was acquitted, and, though
many still believed hlui guilty, most'
persons were conviuced of his Innocence.
The moment he was made free he
came to me nnd embraced rae. "Come
with me," he said. 1 went home with
him, and ho asked, "What can I do for
yon?"
"Help me get awny from the farm."
"The best way to do that Is to edit-
cato you. Would you like to go to college?"
I replied that I would, and be sent
me to a preparatory school and after
that to college and gave mc also t profession.
Thp real murderer of Ackers was
mlwquonlly arrested. I took enough
Interest lu the case to bunt down the
pistol wllh which Iho murder wr.s
done nnd tested It for tho scratches.
It had heroine somewhat rusted nnd
ihnwcd other marks besides thoss on
Ihe bullet In my possession, but ther*
were two thnt gnvo the snm* distant-*

necessary, far tbt murderer confessed.

1SC0, the son of a Jewish merchant,,
he attains to a great office at tho ago
of 03.   He began life in his father's
office.    But of that he soon  grew
weary.    Then he   tried   the   Stock
Exchango for a few years, but with
111 success, and it was not until 1SS4
lhat ho found bia true vocation, and
entered as a student at the Middle
Temple.    But at this date, after all
his varied experiences,   ho   was   no
older than many other entrants from
the universities, for he was only 24,
and was but 27 when he was called;
to ths Bar and joined the Northern;
Circuit.   His flrst big case was as t
junior    in    tbe    Chetwynd-Durham
suit, which was heard in 1S91. Then
lie   acquired   a    reputation   among
I counsel as one who knew tbe City
and finance.   He became a specialist
la commercial cases.     But   his   advocacy was found equally convincing
in almost any class of trial, and by
tho close   of   tho   'nineties   he   was
universally spoken of ss the coming
man at tho Bar, and there wero tho
usual guesses at the fabulous income
which   rumor   declared  him  to ho
making.    Liko so many olher eminent barristers, Sir Rufus bad un infinite capacily for work.    He never
spared    himself,   yet    was    always
eager, alert, active, and alive.    He
took  silk   in   1898,   and   when   Mr.
Justice Bigbam was raised to   the
Bench   it  was   to Mr. Rufus Isaacs
that the reversion of his magnificent
commercial practice fell.   Two years
' later Sir Kdward Carson became Solicitor-General, which    meant    that
another series ot   eminently   lucrative briefs   wero   brought   his way.
His advocacy was of a high order.
Its secret   was   its   persuasiveness.
Tho voico was suave, but the argu-
I ment also was very sound and good.
I There was no torrent of eloquence,
but a flow of shrewd, keen obsefva-
: tion, in which tbe points were driven
i home   wilh   quiet   insistence.     Sir
I Rufus Isaacs, as an advocate,   was
always sure   of   his facts,   and   his
thrusts wero neat and clean.   When
I it came to a duel with a man in tho
dock  of   tho  calibre  of  Whitaker
i Wright tho contest was exciting and
i dramatic, and tho advocate bad tha
better of   the   encounter.     With   a
I good case to work on, the new Lord
! Chief was also a brilliant and dex-
j terous counsel.   With a poor one, ho
could  be relied upon  to make  the
best of   It, nnd turn   to profit   any
favorable opening that arose during
the hearing.   He was always master
of himself, and exhibited a perfect

They Like Lloyd-George.
David Lloyd George, Chancellor of
the Exchequer, Is the most popular
man In Italy, according to Welshmen
returning from the continent.
The common people of Italy, In
discussing the British statesman, .say
that his well-known measures, such
as pension for old people, lnsur- I
ance, etc., are greatly needed ln |
Italy. Whenever Lloyd George speaks,
In or out of Parliament, every word
he says ls printed ln the Italian pa- j
pera. l-iuch more spaco Is given to
his speeches than to the utterances
of the Trime Minister of Italy. His
remarks are read avidly by workmen
who can read to their friends who
cannot. Britain's questions are
Italy's questions. There are movements in each country in the rame
direction, and tbe Italian working-
man believes that the British leader
ls the prophet o" the new era.

day by a gentleman to whom Henry

This story of Gibbon, the famout

"Gibbon had a small face, almost
lost between a high forehead and a
big double chin and a caricature of a
nose which was crushed between the
encroaching slopes of a pair of baggy
cheeks. One day ho was Introduced

Gibbons received Iheso marks of attention, offering his fact to tho exploration of the blind lady's lingers

Whereupon Sir Henry turned to a

1 have grasped your meaning all

that's all. 1 would like to know what

1 can tell you nothing except that 1
think the man whose past . want pictured for me, is married has travelled on the Continent and has lived
most of his lilt* big game shooting,
probably i i South America.
That may mean some travelling?
the American said.
Very poBSfbl, That's why 1 want
you to wofk backwards. And 1 suppose you are clever enough lo be able
to tell mc exactly what this Hetherlngton number one did from (September
1 to September tV*' It is possible thai
that may lie sufficient. I want you to

There Is only ore difficulty, Ihe
American said. Apparently tliere are

one?
Take it froui me, you can't. Confine
yourself io the past, and you need
have no fears on that score.
They arranged terms and then
strolled hack to the lounge. Carmen
had just arrived. Without
scions of what she was
lletherington realized that
magnificently gowned and she was
wearing superb diamonds.
Saluzo wished him goDd-night nnd
turned away. Hut, acting on a sudden Impulse lletherington slopped
liim. Let ne Introduce you to my
wife*-as you haven't dined, you had
better join us.
He had two reasons for Uviling Uie
American, the least of which was he
dreaded a .ote-a-teto with his own
wife Though Carmen's manner was
perfectly charming lie wns-quick lo
nee that she resented the presence ot
a third party. AndsHelr.erlngtou fell
to wondering now he would have felt,
liow lie would have behaved tupposlnr.
lie had never met Peggy Mehon.
Could he then have resisted the fascinations of his own wife? He bad
no reason to be ashamed of her. Perhaps her dress wan a little startling,
perhaps sho wore too many jewels, but
she possessed wit as well as beauty;
her conversation was brilliant, her
manners juturally foreign but perfect.
Silas Saluzo was evidently impressed
and lie Jld his best to make himself
l.greeable.
After the men! they returned to the
lounge, and all three smoked over
their coffee. When tlto clock struc:
ten o'clock, Carmen rose, asking her
husband lo take her home.   I hope we
shall me-' agala, Mr, Saluzo, she said
giving him h-.* hand. We must all go
to a theatre together. I'll get my
husband to arrange a u.ty with you tomorrow.
Evldontly she did no; uuspect ths
American's profession, lletherington
was relieved. He felt terribly guilty
where Carmen was conoernow.
An electric* motor-brougham was
waiting outsit and together they entered II and drove hack to Albert Hall
.Mansions.
Well, what did you arrange with
your lawyers? Carmen asked,
lletherington told her. He almost
expected a passionate outburst, but to
his surprise she remained finite calm
anil-n little cold.
That means ilea that we're really-
going to part for ever, aud you will
live the rest of your life abroad'.'
1 think so.
And after all you don't love me?
He looked at her. Only a strong
man could have sail 'No' io such a
woman nt such a moment. If Peggy
.Mehon had novcv entered his life, the
odds were that he would have been
incapable of saying 'No.' lt was difficult enough. Hut here at last was
a chance of speaking the absolute
(null, even though it wore brutal.
No, Carmen, I don't love you—not
as a husband sliouid love his wife
ever. We're husband and wife, don't
forget that. Now what are you going
to do?

Would Limit Time of Keeping Eggs in
Cold Storage
Washington.—Production of eggs in
the United States   has   steadily   increased during the past 1* years. The
price of eggs has also moved steadily
upwards.   Depattment of agriculture
officials declare that cold storage, is
responsible for the high prices.   Fig-
j ures issued recently by the census bu-
t reau show that In 1SD9 American hens
' laid  1,;»3,662,000 dozen  eggs,  which
was seventeen dozen for every man,
woman and child !.. the country.
In 1I>09 they produced 17.3 dozens
per capita, while this year it is estimated that they will produce IT.8 doz*
pes per capita.
As to prices the statistics show that
!:. ISM average best frcih eggs sold
wholesale in New York, highest price
at 3G cents, in 300-1 at 47 cents, in
190S at 56 cents, in' November, 3 P12,;
at 60 cents. Last month they,',verc
611 cents.
Department otlici.ls expressed ihe
opinion lhat there should be a nation-
, al law limiting the time which eggs
! may bo kept in cold sto."age, six
months probably being the limit. This
they said, would put eggs on the
market more uniform', and prevent
them from being held .'or exorbitant
prices, Further, it was declared that
shipments of eggs from o.i state lo
another, except, to retail dealers,
should be prohibited in order to prevent evasion of tlie proposed storage
limit law.

Primitive Fishhooks
What sort of hooks did our ancestors, our really remote ancestors, use,
whet wild in wood"^he noble savage
ran? I am inclined to agree with
tho American view that tho earliest
I typo of hook, it hook it can be called,
was a straight bit of dint burled ln
the bait. When tht flsh bad swallowed the bit of meat, or whatever it was
the tightening of the lino pulled the
Hint icross its throat, and, as lt stuck
there, the fish coal*? ho hauled ashore
I without more ado. Perhaps some
I bright innovator of that misty past
one day trioti a bit ot flint which had
a double curve like a pair of buffalo
horns and found it effective, and perhaps out of that developed tbe genuine double book, which seems to have
been a very early form. And perhaps the single hook came Into being
because it was realized that one bend
was ns efficient as '.wo for most purposes.

lumbago got to be a ctronb thing
with me. I could scarcely get in a

my strength and fortified my blood

ANXIOUS TIMES
IW PARENTS
Children Often Seem Pining Away
and Ordinary Medicine Does
Not Help Them
The health of children between the
ages of twelve and eighteen years, particularly in the caso of girls, is a
.lource of serious worry to nearly
every mother. The growth and development takes so much of their
strength that In ninny cases Ihey actually seem lo be going Into a decline,
'.'ho appc-tlte is tickle, brightness gives
way to depression; there are often
serious headaches, fits of dizziness, or
occasional fainting and a complaint
of weariness the slightest exertion.
Ordinary medicines will not bring re-
lief. The blood has beccnie thin and
watery, and the child must have stunc-
tl.lng that will bring tho blood back
to it.*, normal condition. At this stage
no oilier medicine can equal l*r. Williams' Pink Pills. Their whole mission is to make new blood, which
reaches every part of the body, bringing back health, strength and energy.
Mrs. .lames Harris, Port ftownn, Ont.,
says: "At the age of thirteen my
daughter begun to look very pale, and
seemed llstleas end always tired. I5he
tlitl not take interest in her seiicol
work or in those amusements of girlhood. In fact she just seemed lo
drag herself about, complaining of alwnys being tired; did not eat well,
ami diti not sleep well at night. 1 took
her to our doctor who said she was
anaemic, anil advised me to give her
in*. Williams' Pink Pills. She took
the Pills for nearly two months, when
she wus as well and lively as any girl
could be. gained nicely iu weight, and
has since enjoyed perfect health, I
am quite sure that what the Pills did
for niy daughter they will do for other
pale, weak girls. I.have also used
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills myself with
the rest results and can only speak of
them In term*, of greatest praise."

WHEN the high prices
prevailing on the necessities of life are considered
it will be welcome news to
many to note tlie generous
reductions which have been
made at the Big Store.
The most essential requirements of : 11 homes are
flour, butter, lard and sugar
and we have reduced these
to reck bot Urn prices. In
order to give just and equitable treatment to our ever
increasing list of customers
we will discontinue all discounts on future bills. By
so doing we realize that we
can give you the very lowest prices on your esteemed
orders. We have taken this
step also because we can
compete on a more even
basis with outside compe-
tion and so ensure better
prices for our customers
and a larger share of your
business. Dry Goods, Boots
and Shoes and Groceries
will from now on be sold at
nett prices. Kindly present
your discount checks at any
of the departments and redeem them as early as
possible.
